Illinois IARDC : Corrupt jurists, judicial & public officials

rightwingnutsandbolts:

A friend of mine recently told me the sad story of her aunt. Her aunt unwisely gave POA to a neighbor. This neighbor had the aunt declared incompetent and place in the nursing facility, then appropriated her belongings with the help of court orders. Though my friend was able to get a hearing in which her aunt pleaded to have her POA switched to my friend, and though the aunt testified that she was being abused, to date nothing has changed.

There are thousands of cases where the government itself has appointed guardians for “incompetent” people on the flimsiest of evidence and have taken their rights or their property. Several cases like the simple questionnaires given to veterans. One vet had his guns confiscated for incompetence because, when asked about his finances, he replied, “My wife takes care of those.” They will use anything against you, especially if you are old. In the case of my parents, I’m even afraid of the yearly health consultation that is routine now. I tell them never answer yes to any questions such as, “Have you ever been sad over the past year?” Such things have been used as justification for institutionalization.

Child support enforcement $499 for every $1 for visitation

rightwingnutsandbolts:

This article doesn’t even explain the real depth of this gender-biased fiasco that is child support. Men who cannot get jobs, for whatever reason, are still required to prove that they submitted at least 25 applications each month, or they are jailed for non-payment. I personally know a man who has applied for over 1000 jobs, but, because he is on the sex offender registry (undeservedly), he cannot get work. He has been hauled into court over and over and over by the baby’s mother to try to extract more money, even though she will only let him see the child if he promises to stay overnight. If he does that, she tried to seduce him to sleep with her, even though he is engaged to another woman. The reason he gave up on their relationship is because he found out she slept with dozens of men while they were supposedly exclusive. He even caught her doing it in front of their child. But, because he is poor, no one will help him. I have tried to testify for him, but I am not even allowed in the court room. The woman has ALL the rights, regardless of who the guilty party is. I should also point out that everything we gave the child for gifts was pawned to by liquor, and every time the child was brought for visitation in the beginning, he’d show up with no clothes, no food, no formula, and no diapers. We would buy all those, too, but all that was disallowed when it came to credit for support. Seeing, now, in this article, that the State keeps most of the money, that is starting to make a lot of sense.

Note: This article from 2012 is extremely relevant to day as most states are engaging in a system of “stacking” where child support payments made are held in suspension accounts and then added to the cumulative amount reported to the federal government as “collected child support”.  The result?  A massive overpayment that increases the dollar for dollar matching funding for every dollar collected in child support.

Open Letter to Eric Holder Regarding the Big Pharma’s Campaign to Get Every Pre-Adolescent Child in America Vaccinated for HPV

How can people look at this video or read these articles and continue to defend anything having to do with vaccines or the use of fetal cells from aborted babies. Hitler would be so proud of us!

Christian Millennials Work to Redeem Capitalism – How to Make America Disappear

rightwingnutsandbolts:

While it’s interesting that young Christian Millennials are turning to entrepreneurship, more interesting are the graphs of the explosion of the nanny state and it’s departure from the small (less than 10% of GDP) government that over the first 150 years of our nation’s existence. Because no one is alive now that remembers those days, it has become easier to dupe the unsuspecting youth into believing that big government has always been the American model.

These millennial hipsters have traded protesting the evil profits of Wall Street to make a profit of their own.

April 14, 2015 By Elise Amyx

The media has decided millennials don’t make any sense—for good reason. In September 2011, millennials helped take over New York City’s Zuccotti Park to “Occupy Wall Street,” waving anti-capitalist signs in the air. But just two months later, William Deresiewicz of The New York Times contended that the millennial hero isn’t the hippie, reformer, or scientist, but the entrepreneur. Millennials love socialism one minute and hate big government the next. The generation is confused.

Christian millennials are no exception. Many grew up in conservative, Christian homes. But they’re not as eager to proclaim the same love for capitalism as their Ronald Reagan-adoring parents. Brett McCracken described this shift in his book, “Hipster Christianity.” When released in 2010, his premise—that millennials have been jaded by the…

Beyond Politics, What are we learning in the Middle East?

  • Nine days till my personal moratorium on politics is over. There is a lot one could say about the Middle East. For now, we say that His kingdom is not of this world, and it is not gained by fighting a physical war but a spiritual one. So many great stories of true Christian faith in the face of death and earthly ruin have come out of this terrible region of conflicts in which none of the sides is really “good”. In the midst of such chaos and evil, Christian men and women have raised their voices and shouted, “Be still, my soul, the Lord is on thy side.” They have taken up their crosses and followed Jesus. By doing so, they have heaped burning coals of fire on the consciences of His enemies. By doing so, they have caused all to see their good works and marvel, and countless millions to glorify their God in heaven and to turn from death to life in Jesus. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow!

Gave up politics for Lent

Not being of the Roman church tradition, I have never been one to feel obligated to give up things for Lent.  I always felt that, it you should give it up for Lent, you should give it up for good.  Isn’t , after all, the whole point of Mardi Gras to do all those salacious things that you are going to give up for Lent?  Doesn’t that make Lent, then, a form of genuflection in which you make an effort to deny yourself and honor God, if only for a little while?

Well, I do feel there is potential good in fasting and in denying ourselves of things for awhile, if that gives us the ability to concentrate on something more important.  And this is why I chose to give up politics for Lent.

Some people smoke and some do not.  Some people drink alcohol and some do not.  Some people feel giving up meat is a huge sacrifice and some do not.  But I hardly know a single person who isn’t addicted to politics.  It’s what makes the world tic, so I am told.  And, as a political blogger, not talking about politics for six weeks is going to kill my blog site.

But, is politics really what makes the world go round?  I thought that was God.  And has my sight really focused on politics or has it focused more on the root cause of all political malaise — lack of God?

Whether I talk about politics or not, they same things will go on in the world.   Whether ISIS becomes the new world threat or not, war, hatred, social disaster and political ineptness will all come from some source, in some way, for all time.   And all the political pundits and all the congressmen and women will never be able to fix the world’s problems and bring peace for all time or even in our time.  For there is only one who can bring peace to the earth, and one who offers a true fix — Jesus Christ.

Martin Luther, erstwhile Roman Catholic monk of the sixteenth century said very well, “The job of the Christian shoemaker is not to paint crosses on all the shoes he makes.  His job is to make the best possible pair of shoes he can make.”   Sure, one can talk of politics and all other things as a Christian and doesn’t have to drop the name of Jesus in every sentence.  But he can discuss everything in the light of the truth that Jesus has revealed. And he can find empirical evidence from life that clearly shows how common sense aligns with the truths of God.  So a Christian can be an especially good political pundit.  But, because the world refuses to acknowledge the truth or follow it, the Christian, in order to be a pundit, must swim in a sea of compromises.  He cannot stand up for truly conservative line that the world, devoid of common sense or lacking the desire to be reined in by it, would never accept.  He cannot speak the truth that abortion is, by and large, a shameful, disgraceful sanctioning of murder, so he must instead speak about splitting hairs as to what would seem prudent for the gestational point at which to cease to allow it.  He can’t speak about how shameful it is that the 97% of heterosexual people have allowed to 2% of homosexual people who run Hollywood to jam their twisted lifestyle down our throats on the cable channels that we must now pay handsomely to receive.   He can, however, compromise by saying, “That’s not how I choose to live but you are free to do what you want,”  while not adding the part about how deviance from the six thousand years of normal marriage and family are ruining the world.  Or, he can tell the truth and either be ignored or vilified.  Watching my blog number for the last three years, I’m guessing that in my case it is mostly being ignored.

Well, I committed to continue blogging for at least five years.  And I will.  But I care about other things too much to keep beating the dead horse.  I will soon be creating another blog site and moving on.  Of course I will take my posts with me and set them in a corner somewhere in case anyone might want to read them in the future.  And I probably will compile a few things into an E-book and have that as my manifesto on the subject of politics.  But I have other places to go, other people to meet, and miles and miles I want to go before I sleep.  And those people, places and miles I want to travel speaking about what works and not what is broken.  Thousands and thousands of bloggers have that covered already.

So, sorry I’ve been out for awhile.  Expect that, for at least four more weeks, I will say nothing of America and it’s hellbent run to destruction.  Not that I don’t want to.  But I have bigger fish to fry.

So, Jesus, what line of work are you in?

I have friends who are lawyers but don’t want anyone to know they are lawyers.  It’s not because they are ashamed to be lawyers.  It’s because, once people know they are lawyers, they start asking for legal advice.  Usually it’s “something small”, so the asker never seems to think it’s much of an imposition.

Lawyers aren’t alone in this. How many times have doctors heard, “I’ve got this little pain right here.” or “can you write me a prescription for …”.  Contractors, plumbers, electricians, you name it.  They’ve all dealt with people interested in them only for their ability to give free help.

Now, imagine for a minute what Jesus must have gone through.  Back then, there were no doctors or medical practices anything like what we have today.  Yet along comes this guy that heals people on the spot!  He’s so good, that you’ve heard stories that if people just touch him they are healthy as a horse.  Sure, Jesus was a Rabbi, a preacher, first and foremost.  But most people seemed to forget that.  A lot of people were amazed at how much better of a legal mind he was than their other legal experts, and they followed him around waiting to see what kind of zinger he had to rebuff the next challenge.  But most people just wanted to see the show.

Jesus, Son of God, preacher of renown, was, first and foremost a circus act in the minds of most people.  Reading through Mark’s Gospel in Chinese, I had this perspective driven home to me by the way some of the passages were translated into Chinese.  Here is Mark 3:10

10 因为他使许多人痊愈,所以有病痛的人都向他挤过来,想要摸到他。

Because he made so many people well, everyone with any kind of ailment pushed through the crowd towards him, hoping they could touch him.

It speaks of people with 病痛 (bingtong) following Jesus around.  Bingtong are things like the common cold, a sore muscle, a cough, a hangnail, indigestion.   It tells us that people were 挤过 (jiguo), forcing their way through the crowds, which we are told earlier had Jesus and the disciples so surrounded that they didn’t even have room to eat.  And they were forcing their way through just to touch Jesus.  It’s hard to imagine the press of people, unless you were in one of the tragic stadium collapses in European football where hundreds suffocated to death.

Can’t you just imagine what Jesus was dealing with.  “Hey Jesus, heal my sniffles.”  “Hey Jesus, I’ve got this big bunion, what can you do about that?”  “Jesus, can you bless my food, my child, my new gown?”  Fights break out among those struggling to get close to Jesus.  In chapter five, Jesus decided to go to the wilderness to get away, but, when the crowd see the disciples sneaking off they figure out that the circus is leaving town and they chase it far out into nowhere, not even thinking about how they are going to survive out there without food, water, or shelter.  Fortunately for them, Jesus had compassion and treated them to another show — feeding tens of thousands of people with a handful of food.

Now, we have our sports idols and our music idols and our rich movers and shakers.  And people like to get close to them for the same reason they wanted to get to Jesus.  They are the stars of the shows.  So we can understand how the people must have felt, especially since Jesus was pretty much the only show in town.  But, of course, Jesus was much more than that.  Unlike our modern headliners, Jesus had a lot more to offer than a ticket to an event, or a handout, or even physical health and wellness.  For Jesus, healing people, as wonderful as that was, was just an opening act.  The real show was one in which he would make a way for everyone who would receive it to be stars in an eternal show.  The physical healing that he was providing was only to show that he had the power to grant spiritual and eternal healing.  As he said to the crowd when a paralytic was lowered through the crowd to him.  “Which is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven’ or ‘get up and walk?  But so that you may know that I have the power to forgive sins, I tell you, get up and walk!”  All the miracles pointed to the greatest miracle of all.  Jesus came to remit payment for everyone who ever rebelled against God and did his own thing, which is all of us.  He came to give us back the glorious, perfect and eternal life that we were intended to have when God made Adam his chief creation.

So, as you take a look at Jesus, what do you want to see?  A side show?  Or a savior?
