Zechariah 12:8 King James Version

In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the House of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.


Oh, come that day when the House of David shall be as God.

He has wonderous things in store for those who love Him. Have no fear and let not your heart be faint for all we are witnessing, rather give your heart over to the Lord and He will be your refuge.

His wrath is reserved for the wicked. His glorious promises for His children.

Love Him, trust Him, praise Him and give Him thanks for His mercifulness and faithfulness. Our mighty God is about to reveal Himself to this lost and weary world. And every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is King.

It's all about Jesus.
The Savior of the world.

The Passion of Jared Lee Loughner

In the wake of the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona, which resulted in the murder of six innocent people, among them a nine year old girl, Americans across the country are rightfully mourning this horrible event, and are attempting to understand what exactly happened.

** (As a side note, President Obama offered a wonderful tribute to the victims and the survivors, once again calling all Americans to a larger vision, one that seeks to raise the overall level of public discourse. I believe it was his finest moment , and you can see it here:**

The corporate media, eager to seize the story and sell it for advertising dollars, has offered its stock answer when things like this happen, which is that the violence was a single act of a “crazed shooter” a young man named Jared Lee Loughner. This is standard operating procedure for the media which seeks to simplify all stories for general consumption, making the story easier to sell. And while there is truth to the fact that Loughner was a deeply troubled young man, and likely did commit the murder on his own, much to the media’s chagrin, a sub-story has begun to emerge which seems to indicate that Loughner may have been influenced by powerful political and media movements and personalities. This revelation came shortly after the shootings from an unlikely source, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. Below is an excerpt of some of Dupnik’s statements:

"The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information," Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said today. "[Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences."
"The vitriol affects the [unstable] personality that we are talking about," he said. "You can say, 'Oh no, it doesn't,' but my opinion is that it does."

It is clear what Dupnik is saying: certain members of the media are responsible for inciting a disturbed young man to commit a horrible crime. And by extension, of course, he is accusing those who support them politically, and benefit directly from their shows, for creating an atmosphere of anger towards the government which, in Dupnik’s own words, “has consequences.” The media began noticing that more and more people were resonating with Dupnik’s comments. They then began to further question whether organizations like the Tea Party movement, led by folks like Sarah Palin, were not also somehow responsible for the violence because of the rhetoric and tactics used by many of these groups during the mid-term elections. For example, Network and Cable news showed a picture from Palin’s website, which at the time directed supporters to key midterm elections areas by covering their location on a map of the United States using an icon shaped like a rifle scope sight. Unfortunately, Gabrielle Giffords district was one of the areas in one of these rifle sights. Of course, no one is accusing Palin of advocating direct violence against Giffords or anyone else, however they are questioning her use of symbols.

Here is a link to a copy of the image:

Palin, for her part, is now accusing people like Dupnik, and others in the media, of “blood libel.” It is interesting that Palin would use this racist charge, which was directed by Anti-Semites at European Jews for the ridiculous crime of being a “Christ Killer.” However, we all know that Ms. Palin is not always on top of what she says, so an analysis of her words can wait for another post.

Here is Palin's official response:

I leave it for you to decide whether Dupnik is being fair in his criticism, and whether the media is guilty of blood libel against Palin and the Tea Party movement. What is clear, however, is that Jared Lee Loughner, if he is indeed guilty of the crime of which he is accused, was more than just a lone crazed nut. While not a member of the Tea Party Movement, it is evident by his online activity that he was sympathetic to many of the ideas espoused by the Tea Party and others who hold similar political views.

The following link explains what is known about Loughner, his beliefs, and online activity:

What can we learn from this horrible event? That America is a deeply divided country, and those divisions are used and exploited by those who seek to gain power, money, and influence. However, ideas are powerful, and always lead to action. Jared Lee Loughner, and the innocent victims he killed or wounded, are calling us all to examine our ideas because they will determine what kind of a country our children will inherit. Will it be a country unified and strong, or one divided and violent? This tragedy presents an opportunity, if we can learn from it.

Romans 8:35-39 (King James Version)

35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Make a joyful noise unto the One who loved you enough to come down from His throne and die for you.
Give thanks unto the One who prays to the Father on our behalf.
Praise His holy name for all that He has done, is doing, and all that is to come.
Love the Lord your God, Jesus Christ, with all your heart, mind and soul. There is none like Him and none other that is worthy.

Psalm 91:2
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.

Psalm 97:12
12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
