Innocents Betrayed – A Documentary detailing the history of gun control and genocide! -Warning Graphic

Here is a very important documentary produced by the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. In the wake of the mass school shooting tragedy in Newtown CT, this is an important video that puts the whole issue of gun control into true perspective. While the slaughter of children and their teachers at their school, a place of supposed safety, is a monumental and heartrending tragedy, it is important to reflect that in the 20th Century, more innocents have been killed by their governments than by rogue madmen.

The American Millennium Online abhors violence, especially that committed against children. But we also hate the tyrannical governments throughout the ages that have slaughtered their own people for whatever reason because they thought they were “undesirables”. Posting this video will probably get you banned from Facebook, Twitter and other social media. It goes against the leftist agenda of gun control.

We appreciate what film director Aaron Zelmon says at the end of this video, that an armed society is a polite society. He’s right. You only have to look at American History to see the victimization of Native Americans and Black Americans at the hands of angry whites with guns. So it is wrong headed to think it can’t happen here. It already has.

We believe that there is a God-given right for the private citizen to make provision for themselves for self defense. In that ideal, we support the private citizen to own semi-automatic weapons with large capacity magazines. It should be noted that the armed citizen must still face the armored tank operated by their government. It still isn’t a fair fight, but a citizen armed with a rock or club is just a bad joke.

Creative consultant and attorney Richard W. Stevens sites Federalist Papers 29 and 46 in the end of his interview as opinions preferred by our founders as to why our citizens should be armed as a right. None imagined the kind of genocide possible in the 20th Century with modern weapons. If they had, I believe the Founders would have been even more pro-gun than they were, if that is at all possible.

I believe this short film should be distributed far and wide over the Internet as a way of informing people about the dangers of gun control. I believe this was the intent of the film makers. I would encourage everyone who view this film to also go to the website and buy the DVD, as a thank you for the people who went through the time and expense to produce it.

Some might object to citing a Jewish source for information of this type. There is still a lot hatred and animosity for the Jews and the Jewish state of Israel even today. That’s OK. No one on Earth understands genocide better than the Jewish people, having been the victim of it for so many years, and we appreciate their viewpoint.

Dealing with Holiday Stress

Note from the Creator of American Millennium Online: Dealing with stress during the holidays can be difficult. Often times we can find our normal stress levels catapulting to unmanageable levels during the holidays. That is why we consulted our friend Mike Arieta, a licensed clinical social worker, to give us some tips on how to eliminate or deal with increased levels of holiday stress. Arieta is the proprietor of New Path Counseling in Apple Valley.

Stress is a common and normal part of everyday life. We experience stress as a result of job, school family, social and other life events. Stress in small amounts for a short period of time can be of some help to us to spur us on to complete tasks and meet goals. When stress is prolonged over a long period of time and continuous, stress can cause major issues mentally and physically. This piece is meant to provide some insight on how to deal with a particularly stressful time of year the holiday season.

The holiday season tends to be a more stressful time then other times of the year assuming that the other times of the year are not filed with major life event stressors. The reason the holidays tend to be a more stressful time of year is due to several factors:

  1.  The demands of entertaining or being involved with many events
  2. Financial because of all the demands to purchase gifts especially if a person is on a tight budget
  3. Depression due to the loss of loved ones that would normally share in the holiday events
  4. Feelings of guilt over saying no to many invitations to events
  5. Dealing with feelings of anger or hurt over past wrongs committed against us from family

The list above names just a few reasons we would feel more stress around the holiday times. It is important to remember that we experience stress all year long, but the holidays tend to be more stressful because all of the stress we feel during the year tend to build up and the flurry of events that entail the season are all compacted into a very short time. In other words too much to do and not enough time to do it in. Here are some ways to lessen the stress of a very hectic season:

  1.  Learn to understand what your body is telling you. When a person feels stress the body is the indicator of what is going on. Signs such as headaches, upset stomach, clenching teeth and fatigue can all be signs of the body and mind being under stress. Learn to recognize what your body is telling you. These signs may mean you need to back off a bit and take it easy.
  2. Take time for yourself. This can be easier said than done, but if you make a conscious effort you can take time for yourself. When people fail to do this the holidays can overwhelm them and they may not be able to rest mentally and physically. Make an effort to take breaks in a busy day, remember to breath deep and let it out slow.
  3. Communicate, communicate, communicate! If you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, talk with others and let them know how you are feeling. Often talking with other people is very helpful in stress reduction as you may find others who share your issues. You learn that you are not alone in the holiday process.
  4. Exercise. Along with taking time for you is exercising. Sometimes in the middle of the rush people forget to go for a good walk or take time to stretch. Exercise is a great way to keep yourself fit and reduce stress. exercise can also be done as a fun holiday activity with family and friends after dinner or events.
  5. Do not feel guilty about setting limits. You know how much you can deal with. Do not let feelings of guilt let you take on more than you can handle. Set some limits and say no if need be. If you do not set some limits on your time, your time will be taken from you and you will not be able to be at your best.
  6. Understand that you may experience feelings of loss especially if you have lost loved ones that would normally be a part of annual family gatherings. Understand that it is normal to feel sad at times due to the loss and know that it is important to share your thoughts and feelings about this with others.

Please, Please do not be afraid to seek out professional help if needed. So many times people feel guilty or ashamed to seek out professional help at this time of year. Know that it is alright to ask for help and others have done this in the past. Asking for help does not mean you are weak or soft, it is healthy to do this. There are many places to reach out to, crisis hot lines, shelters and hospitals.

It is my hope that in this holiday season you are able to reduce your stress and enjoy time with others. Remember that there is help available for all who need it.

Atheists are Idiots, (And So Are We!)

Last Days Madness: Obsession of the Modern Church by Gary DeMar -American Vision

Above my doorway between the kitchen and my living room, I have a sign. It has a verse of the Bible, Jeremiah 29:11. It reads, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

Now I could quote you any famous quotation, from Shakespeare, to Euclid, to Cicero or Kant. Perhaps Nietzsche is your bag, it doesn’t matter who. I chose this saying for a purpose, actually two purposes, but the main one is to demonstrate this, reason and logic as the source of information.

You see, even an atheist, frothing at the mouth in his horror at being subjected to any concept religious or especially Christian has an understanding about what this verse means. He can tell you, after he or she gets over his complete disgust at the insult made upon his person to be subjected to the idea or concept of a creator God who has a plan for us out there in the universe can tell you what this verse means and be fairly accurate at doing so, even if they claim not to be interested or familiar with ideals of faith. Why? Information. This passage contains information and data, logically ordered in an easy to understand code that passes on information and a message to the reader that the reader can understand and relay back to the one reading it. Why is this important? Because the froth-mouth atheist in his most honest moment must admit that he has no idea or explanation adequate to articulate where information comes from, how it is created or who it’s author may be. (We all can use information and share it through language, but where does information come from in the first place?)

You see, regardless of what quote I give you at the top of this page, it’s immaterial. I chose this one concept for the secondary purpose of pissing off the atheist because I think it’s funny to see them rant and rave and carry on about how insulted they are, my secondary purpose. But the first purpose was to demonstrate how ideas can be passed along by language and information that though we disagree about the nature or truthfulness of that information, we never the less can understand the concepts being shared and there is the conundrum. Why is this so?

An atheist, or an agnostic who is nothing more or less than an atheist who attempts to disguise who he is, has no good explanation of where information comes from. The evolutionists, or atheist who happens to be a scientist as well, will tell you that before the world or universe was created, there was nothing, and this supposed nothing exploded without cause or impetus or design purpose what so ever. Then after the nothing that preceded everything that blew up for no particular reason expanded over billions of years and was very hot, though no one knows why, and then, for no particular reason again that nothing that is now everything that blew up without reason and expanded for who knows why suddenly began cooling and contracting and formed the stars the worlds and what have you.

Then, after billions of more years where nothing much happened, some chemicals that formed out of the nothing that preceded everything got together for who has the foggiest and spontaneously made the first living cell, no small feat, for no reason at all. Not knowing what its purpose was or caring much at all that first cell all on its own knew that it had to reproduce itself and feed itself and did so until suddenly there were many cells mutating and growing and changing into more complex life forms that also knew how to eat and breed and take care of themselves even though there was no one or nothing to show them how. Let’s not forget that in light of all of this the mind numbing opportunistic chance that there was nutrients and conditions ripe for these early life forms to thrive, otherwise it would have been all for naught.

Are you starting to see what I’m up to? The atheistic worldview is worthless garbage. But the Christian worldview has everything, an easy to understand logical explanation for the source of all life that gives us purpose and vision for this life.

You see, atheist and evolutionists think they are pretty smart, but they really aren’t. Because nowhere in their theories do they bother to explain where information comes from that orders everything into something and creates the very complex biosphere we have with all the biodiversity of life forms we see. That is pretty arrogant, and in my view, ignorant.

I can understand the atheist, he really is quite simple. Why do you suppose they push this absurd idea upon us that there is no God and all of nature is really just the product of billions of years of chance and mutation, even though there is myriad evidence to the contrary? Well for the simpleton who is the atheist and evolutionist, the thought that he or she is not accountable to a creator God is quite liberating and intellectually satisfying to them. They don’t have to follow anyone’s rules, so they can make up their own. Which brings us to another point. Atheists have to have control of the conversation because it gives them power and makes them members of the ruling class.

If we buy into the lie that they are all so smart and listen and obey their fallacious notions we become their slaves and have to depend on them for everything. That’s why they try to dominate education, politics and the culture. It gives them the control and those who are in control are the ruling class. Pure and simple.

I believe that the smartest of this bunch really know the flaws in the argument about creation and purpose, God and eternity, but it really doesn’t matter to them. Many would continue on as they are even if they have concrete proof that God exists, because in their minds, they don’t want to be accountable to Him.

So the atheist is easy to understand. I know him, I have studied him often. He is an open book. What I don’t understand is the Christian.

Christians are supposed to know the Truth, that Truth with a capitol T that doesn’t care what you and I think of it, it merely is. If we who are Christians know this Truth, why are we so afraid to share it? Instead of fighting the constant onslaught that is the liberal left, fueled by the doctrine of the atheistic, humanist high priesthood, (scientists), we crawl in a hole and keep silent and wait for a rapture that is never coming.

That’s right my Christian friends, I don’t believe in the rapture. Are we still friends? The rapture is just a made up word and notion that someone made up that never appears once in the Bible. Surprised? Well, it doesn’t. Millions of Christians are walking around day after day waiting for Jesus Christ to come down out of the sky and save us from the decadent world and bring us justice, whisking us all away to the sweet by and by of Heaven. Well, that’s not going to happen.

See, the Bible verses quoted to give us this idea of a rapture and the end times are taken out of context and woefully misused. Most of the prophecy of the Bible is closed, having been fulfilled in Bible times. Most of prophecy is a prophet telling the people there will be consequences for their actions and that God will bring justice in their times to the sin and rebellion of the people. The people have the opportunity to change their ways and of course they don’t, and thus, God’s wrath is realized.

So where does all this end times crap come from? Many believe Bible authors wrote coded messages stating when Jesus will return with judgment and free us all from the sin and awfulness of this world. Hogwash. They even quote Jesus himself. “When will you return and what will be the sign of your coming.” Etc. Well most of those old quotes of Jesus have been fulfilled in the disciples’ own lifetime or shortly after, in the first century. Jesus accurately predicted the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Jewish temple as a recompense for His rejection from the Jews. He wasn’t predicting his ultimate return 2,000 plus years out. He was talking within His generation, the generation he was living in. And as he predicted, the end of the Jewish world arrived. The Jewish nation was destroyed, the temple burned, their city sacked, end of story.

The tragedy from this story is that we as Christians don’t really understand what Jesus was talking about when he predicted judgment on the  Jews and their temple. We erroneously believe he is coming back to judge this generation, but we are not the primary audience of the scriptures, the Jews and Gentiles of Jesus’s day were the real audience. The scripture is useful to us in that we can understand by reading what God’s plan is for redemption for us, since we do not have the power of redemption within ourselves.

We have abdicated our power to change this world in his name because we think it is a hopeless cause and Jesus is coming back soon anyway so what’s the use in trying. This is why Christians throw up their hands and don’t engage in politics or culture and live their lives in quiet suffering, doing the best they can while they wait for the end. But this is not what Jesus wanted us to do.

The great commission Christ gave us is to preach the Gospel to the whole world and not to stop until all who have heard can either accept or reject it. And, we’ve failed in our mission because of an erroneous reading of Bible prophecy. Shame on us.

We need to get re-engaged and get back out there and fight for the culture, and not to accept the lies of the left. We can see all around us the fruit of their world view. It is up to us to change it.

Jesus will come when he comes, but we meanwhile have a mission and we have not done it. We need to get back to work.

Gary DeMar, Author of Last Days Madness: Obsession of the Modern Church

If you’re are interested in Bible Prophecy and it’s real meaning, go to American Vision and look for the works of Gary DeMar. I particularly recommend his book, Last Days Madness: Obsession of the Modern Church. It is an interesting, enlightening read that won’t take you very long at all.

Israel’s Iron Dome is Saving Lives, is Source of National Pride!

(You Tube Video uploaded by Truthloader Nov. 15, 2012)

by Jeremy Griffith

As the title of this article suggests, the Israeli Iron Dome, an anti-missile missile system is saving lives in that country as Hamas, the Palestinian Terror organization, shoots hundreds of rockets at Israel from the West Bank and Gaza on a daily basis. The rockets create fear and uncertainly and can kill people and cause a lot of damage, but the Iron Dome is preventing many of these rockets from hitting their targets and achieving their goal.

I spoke to my brother recently who asked me to watch a You Tube Video on the topic and to comment upon it. My brother, Jason Griffith, is a Major in the Colorado National Guard and a Space Operations officer recently returned from a 9-month tour of duty in Afghanistan as the leader of a space team. He asked me this  poignant question.

“How many rockets are launched at Israel from Gaza?” he asked. I had no idea, but having been in the Holy Land once before myself, I knew it was a lot.

“Eight-hundred and seventy-seven,” he said. “And that is in just the last two days! How many of us would tolerate such a barrage from say Canada or Mexico?”

How many indeed?I think that most Americans would pummel the living crap out of those people attempting to assault us, but when it comes to Israel defending itself, the world urges restraint. RESTRAINT?! Please. This is an outrage. None of us would tolerate this, why should Israel? But instead of siding with Israel, who is the victim of these attacks, the Israelis are targeted by negative world opinion and labeled as the aggressors when they go into these areas and kill the leaders of Hamas responsible for the terror.

So here is my commentary on the video. Ronald Reagan was a demonstrable genius when he envisioned the so called Star Wars shield of anti-missile missile batteries when he came up against the Soviet Union in the Cold War. His greatest achievement was bluffing down the Russians and pushing off from the table at Reykjavik when Gorbachev asked him to give up Star Wars. Now the vision that Reagan had is a reality and all the idiots who called him an idiot can see for themselves the real life realization of his dream. The Patriot Missile batteries of the United States and the Iron Dome of Israel is the culmination of that dream, a shield that would block incoming ballistic missiles and keep a nation free from the threat of intercontinental ballistic missiles, especially nukes.

But we can take no comfort in the long lasting legacy of Reagan. While Israel continues to proof these great defensive weapons, President Obama plans to cut the military and what do you suppose will be among the first programs to cut? Intercontinental anti-ballistic missile systems, leaving us vulnerable to attack from without. Obama will not just stop at cutting Star Wars, he has already planned to cut back our nuclear ballistic missile capability to dangerous levels, thus making us weaker while emboldening our enemies.

This President doesn’t care about defense, which is the executive branch’s primary mission. We saw that with his reaction to Benghazi. Obama’s goal it seems is to continually steal from the taxpayer to pay off cronies and to redistribute wealth from those who have, and have worked to earn it, to those who have not, and who have no plans to ever work. Over half of Americans voted to re-elect a president so they could steal from you what they have no right to have and give it to them who have no desire to earn it. Amazing!

Well, there are consequences to elections people and we will be seeing them in the next few years as this President and his cronies in the Democratic Party, a degrading bastardization of the Party of Thomas Jefferson, drives us all over the fiscal cliff!

Take heart that at least Israel gets it and will likely be fine on their own. Necessity is the mother of invention. When we at last are threatened like Israel, perhaps we will come to our senses. I just hope that isn’t too late.

Watch this video from the Missile Defense Agency on their proposed anti-ballistic missile capability in 2020.

Kelli In Kuwait – An Adventure of an Embedded Journalist

Kelli In Kuwait -An Adventure of an Embedded Journalist from Jeremy Griffith on Vimeo.

by Jeremy Griffith

For journalists and bloggers, access to government data and records can be a minefield filled with pitfalls. FOIA requests, documents, public meetings, interviews with politicians all have their challenges. How far would you go to get access to your government? Would you travel 5,000 miles to a combat zone and embed yourself in a military unit for a week? One local reporter did just that.

Kelli Lageson is the special projects editor at the Albert Lea Tribune and has been working for the newspaper for over two years. When two local National Guard units were mobilized to Fort McCoy prior to their deployment to Kuwait, Lageson was invited to cover a training event at the Wisconsin base. She happily accepted. During her visit with the units at Fort McCoy, it was discussed and Kelly agreed that she would look into embedding in the unit as a reporter and blogger once the unit arrived in Kuwait. She asked her bosses at Boone Newspapers, and the newspaper executives agreed to send her.

Lageson began working with the McCoy Public Affairs office and with two senior officers of the Minnesota Army National Guard, Major Paul Rickert and Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Olson. To her surprise it was relatively easy to fill out the paperwork necessary to become a credentialed reporter embed.

“They told me it was a possibility and I didn’t really think it would be something I would be able to do,” Lageson said.

Three months into the unit’s tour of duty in Kuwait, Lageson arrived by commercial flight in Kuwait City. The scariest moment for her was waiting for the two soldiers to pick her up at the airport and take her to Camp Buehring, the remote desert Army outpost just 10 miles south of the Iraqi border.

“I didn’t even have a phone number or a phone to call the soldiers who were picking me up,” said Lageson. “I’m such a planner that I it was rather nerve-wracking for me. I just had to accept the fact that there was no plan and that I had to be O.K. with whatever happened.”

The trip overseas and her journey through the desert were not without their pitfalls. She waited with expectation as the soldiers came to pick her up in a civilian car. Lageson, who says she liked to control and plan things out ahead of time, was worried that her escort, whom she had no control or contact, would arrive on time to pick her up. They did pick her up and they headed out to the desert as they promised.

Once they got to the base, however, the civilian security personnel did not allow her on base, skeptical of her memorandum and passport identifying her as a civilian journalist. After four hours of waiting by the main gain, however, a high ranking officer vouched for her and the journalist was allowed onto the base.

“One of the really high-ups had to come out and vouch for me and say, ‘yes, she was a real journalist and she had a right to be here,” Lageson explained.

Lageson reports that the overall experience with the unit was good. She was given an office to work out of, a reliable Internet connection, lodging and food. Her escort guided her around post and arranged for the interviews with soldiers that she asked for. While in Kuwait, Lageson gained access to soldiers from the unit and wrote 28 pieces with photos and video, she said. The soldiers, tentative about speaking with a reporter, warmed up to her eventually, she said.

Another item that surprised the reporter, was the amount of services provided to the soldiers, including a gym, recreational facilities, coffee shops, dining facilities, etc.

“I don’t know what I expected,” Lageson said. “It just wasn’t that.”

Lageson never left the base, it was too dangerous to go out with the units traveling north into Iraq. But she talked to a lot of soldiers and interviewed them about their daily lives. She says overall the trip was positive and the soldiers she met had a positive attitude about their mission, she said.

“The overal theme I guess I was trying to convey was that they were ok, at least on this deployment, that they were lucky to be on this deployment,” she said. “Maybe that’s a bad assumption but it was the overall impression that I had.”

The response from readers of both the Albert Lea Tribune and Austin Daily Herald were positive too, Lageson said.

“Everyone wants to know, ‘how is my son doing over there?’ I got to show them a little bit of what life is like in Kuwait,” Lageson said.

The military provided housing, food and an escort for the journalist while she was embeded. She spent a week with Company D, 2nd Battalion 135th Infantry and a sister transportation company out of Austin. For her efforts in telling the stories of soldiers deployed to Kuwait, the soldiers awarded her a trefoil pin, an honor recognizing a soldier for doing a good job.

The distinctive crest of the 2nd Battalion, 135th Infantry Regiment, of which Co. D is a part. Note the trefoil in the center remembering the Civil War service and the phrase, “To the Last Man” .

Historical note from the author. The First Minnesota Volunteers were noteworthy in the Civil War after being ordered to fill a breach in the Gettysburg lines. For five minutes they fought off an Alabama unit, outnumbered five to one. Of 262members of the unit that reported that day, only 47 survived. Since that fateful day, the trefoil, the unit’s distinctive patch, has been an honorary noting bravery in a soldier or a civilian attached to the unit. See a history of the First Minnesota Volunteers here.

Video, photos and print reports of Kelli’s adventure to Kuwait is available on the Albert Lea Tribune and Austin Daily Herald websites under the blog Kelli in Kuwait.

See Kelli talk about her adventure in the video above.
