After Sutherland Springs Church Massacre, Anglican Bishop Considers Arming Himself at the Altar

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Washington, DC/Pine Grove Mills, PA  A man of the cloth in Pennsylvania who also wears a badge is now contemplating packing a pistol in the pulpit to protect his parish.

Bishop Council Nedd II, rector of St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills, Pennsylvania and co-chairman of the Project 21 black leadership network, is reassessing security at his church after the mass murder of worshipers at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5. Nedd is also a Pennsylvania state constable.

In a commentary published by Project 21, Nedd wrote:

A pistol in the pulpit may sound extreme, but – when people of faith increasingly appear to be targets of armed evil – a good shepherd must do what he must do to protect the flock from the wolves. From my perspective as both a bishop and a cop, people must be protected. This includes in sacred spaces.

Nedd previously chose not to carry a firearm while participating in St. Alban’s services despite credible threats to his own safety and personal experience providing security for other places of worship. Growing religious intolerance is causing him to rethink this personal gun restriction, which he will be discussing with his congregation:

It’s shocking that, in a nation founded on the idea of religious freedom, there are monsters out there who now think it’s fair game to target people of faith with deadly force. I’m no stranger to religious bigotry and the condescension of non-believers, but recent church shootings like those in Charleston, South Carolina; Antioch, Tennessee and this latest one in Sutherland Springs bring intolerance to a frightening new level.

Nedd’s full commentary, “Packing in the Pulpit: This Man of God May Arm Himself to Protect His Flock,” is available for reprint on a free, non-exclusive basis and is available by clicking here.

“I fully support Council Nedd’s change of heart on the presence of firearms in church. It’s only natural to want to preserve the sanctity of the sanctuary. Carrying a firearm in the pulpit as an act of preparation does just that,” said fellow Project 21 co-chairman Stacy Washington, a syndicated talk radio host and U.S. Air Force veteran. “”In light of the increasing frequency of atheists and socialists shooting politically conservative people, whether in ballparks or in churches during services, it’s important to allow those who are properly permitted to carry their concealed weapons into the church. Not only is this lawful, but it is Biblical. Jesus’s disciples carried swords as he directed them to do in Luke22:36: “He said to them, ‘But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.'”

Maine House strongly endorses new effort to arm forest rangers

*Editor’s Note* – If there actually existed a Second Amendment and/or the God-given right to defend and/or protect oneself and your property, this wouldn’t even be an issue to discuss or to find ways to fund. Instead of creating another of this country’s band of “Heroes,” every person, whether a forest ranger or a pig farmer, should have the right to choose whether they want to carry a weapon for protection.

“Rep. Lois Reckitt, D-South Portland, said she rarely votes for any bill that supports increasing access to guns, but she voted for this one.

“I am standing up for these folks who in my mind are another segment of the law enforcement community in Maine,” she said.”<<<Read More>>>

Wildlife, Riparian Habitat Protected, Access Improved in Oregon

Press Release from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

MISSOULA, Mont.—The largest private inholding in Oregon’s most popular and biggest wilderness area is now in public hands and open to public access thanks to a collaborative effort between the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service.

The project permanently protects 471 acres adjacent to the Eagle Cap Wilderness in northeast Oregon and improves access to nearly 23,000 additional acres of surrounding public land.

“This area contains vital habitat for elk and a myriad of other wildlife and fish species,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer.

Located southwest of the town of Joseph and directly west of Wallowa Lake, the narrow property runs approximately two miles in length. It serves as an important elk transition area as it lies between elk summer range in the high country and winter range in the lowlands. Mule deer, white-tailed deer, bighorn sheep, and mountain goats are also present within the surrounding area.

Additionally, Little Granite Creek and Falls Creek, two major tributaries to Hurricane Creek, cross the property. Spring Chinook salmon use the waterways for spawning. The creeks also provide crucial riparian habitat for other wildlife.

“In addition to improving public access for hunters, this project also ensures unimpeded access to Hurricane Creek and Falls Creek Trails, two of the most popular trails that provide access to the Eagle Cap Wilderness, including access to Legore Lake, said to be the highest true lake in Oregon at 8,950 feet in elevation,” added Henning.

RMEF conveyed the 471 acres to the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest which now oversees its management.

Vital funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund helped complete the project.

CCofCC Seeks “protection of citizen’s health, safety, welfare, and prosperity”

Press Release from the Concerned Citizens of Central California:

To the citizens of Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties:

Concerned Citizens of Central California hereby notify you that they have formally demanded the County Board of Supervisors and Sheriffs, as responsible representatives of our communities bring together all agencies to devise an emergency plan of action.

The purpose is to secure local control for the protection of citizen’s health, safety, welfare, and prosperity. Some resolutions have been passed at the county level, but no actions have taken place to regain local control of our Sierra National Forest, leading to massive water loss, and catastrophic fires.

Even with a forecast of a strong El Nino this year with above average rainfall, there will be further environmental complications. Increased rainfall from El Nino will bring mudslides and silt into the watershed, the streams, and the rivers killing the fish, making the water unpotable, and useless for our valley agricultural industry.

Without major changed in forest management, the fire danger will increase next year, and the drought will continue.

The whole community is coming together as the current conditions are so destructive that it is burning down the forest, killing wildlife, including the various endangered species. The only way to correct this mismanagement is to work with the US Forest Service using local county controls. The effects of this drought and high fire danger causing natural and socioeconomic disaster will be with us for generations.

Below is a sample letter, which has been mailed to the County Supervisors and Sheriffs in all three counties:

The residents of Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties hereby inform you that degraded conditions in the County forests are endangering the health, safety, welfare and prosperity of all County citizens, businesses, public and private lands.

 Concerned Citizens of Central California request the immediate focused attention and decisive action of all three counties’ Boards of Supervisors as we address the complex issues that this catastrophe presents. We have lost the luxury of time for study and planning. Prompt action is crucial to protect our residents, animals, infrastructure, homes, businesses, natural resources, and recreational industry. Our Sheriff’s departments are over tasked, and underfunded to meet the demands that a mismanaged forest has created.

In 2013, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors passed and adopted the RESOLUTION REQUESTING a STATE OF EMERGENCY IN FRESNO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA DUE TO DEGRADED FOREST CONDITIONS AND IMMINENT THREAT FROM CATASTROPHIC FIRES AND EXTREME DROUGHT. This resolution states that, “It is the responsibility and within the scope of authority of the Board of Supervisors of Fresno County to exercise powers necessary and proper to protect public safety, health, and the economic prosperity of the inhabitants of the County pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of laws of this State;” The Board of Supervisors follows with a request that a state of emergency be declared in and around the County’s forest communities.

On October 21, 2014, the Madera County Board of Supervisors passed and adopted the RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF SUSTAINABLE FOREST POLICIES. “It is the responsibility and within the scope of authority of the Board of Supervisors of Madera County (“County”) to exercise powers necessary and proper to protect public safety, health, and the economic prosperity of the inhabitants of the County pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of laws of this State;” The Board of Supervisors follows with a request that a state of emergency be declared in and around the County’s forest communities.

In April, 2015, the Concerned Citizens of Central California spoke before the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors about the urgent need to pass an EMERGENCY RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF SUSTAINABLE FOREST POLICIES. “It is the responsibility and within the scope of authority of the Board of Supervisors of Mariposa County to exercise powers necessary and proper to protect public safety, health and economic prosperity of the inhabitants of the County pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of laws of this State.”  The Concerned Citizens of Central California request that the Board of Supervisors declare a State of Emergency in and around the County’s forest communities.

The residents of Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties, whose health, safety and welfare you have sworn to protect, do now call upon you, the members of all three County Board of Supervisors, to act promptly and decisively to protect your counties against further destruction. As our Federal and State agencies have failed us, in preventing this emergency, local action becomes the only logical solution.

 We are asking for the County Supervisors to schedule a meeting, as promptly as can be organized, including all three Boards of Supervisors, the Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa County Sheriffs, all appropriate County agencies, the United States Forest Service, Cal Fire, P.G. & E., So. Cal Edison Co. and the residents and businesses, to discuss the implementation of measures, to protect our public and private lands and communities from further damage. Mountain residents will be happy to assist in organizing this event.

 In conclusion, we will work with the Supervisors and Sheriffs in this process unless they are unwilling to work to take action to protect the citizen’s health, safety, welfare, and prosperity. Meaningless political resolutions, statements, and posturing without action is no longer tolerable. Further actions are planned to take place to ensure that the people representing our communities are there to serve the best interests of the people.

 Thank you,

 Concerned Citizens of Central California

As Gov. Rick Perry might attest, this little piece fits nicely into a pocket, or held in your hand and does wonders in convincing one of those coyotes, that environmentalists say never bother humans, that it just made a big mistake coming after you.

A Senseless Poll Says 58% of Idahoans Don’t Want Wolves Protected

Just the idea that people were asked if they wanted protections for the wolf in Idaho is stupid and shows why polls are a worthless instrument, unless the purpose of the poll is strictly to create an atmosphere where people argue and fight over utter nonsense.

The news article shows it’s intent by making the statement, which I assume came from the same useless poll, that, “72% of Republicans oppose protecting wolves while 71 percent of Democrats favor protection of the animal.”

And thus we have the perpetuated and very fake paradigm of us and them, right and left, republican and democrat, liberal and conservative. This is being done all the while the poll shows nothing. The question is just too vague. I contend the majority of those polled don’t even no what “protection” for wolves means in the context of the poll survey. Therefore, the respondents, like the programmed robots they have become, answered the question as they want to believe it should be – they are either on the left or the right.

The bottom line here is that wolf introduction was a criminal act, in my opinion – criminal at many levels by many people, many governments and many organizations. The entire effort has been a disaster, with the protection of a rotten, stinking animal, sold to humans by perverts of its amazing wonders and importance to fake “ecosystems.” Any effort that destroys rights, property and a person’s ability to be fruitful and multiply, is simply wrong. If there was common sense, anymore, it would tell us that. This is, however, the insanity that is being perpetuated.

The distraction comes from media companies that promote their nonsense polls for purposes of which they probably don’t even realize. If you read the comments following this article, you will see the results of this article/poll and the many years of mind manipulations – brainwashing. It’s really quite sad. Attention is focused on the need to hate someone who blindly chooses the label of republican or democrat. All the while, we as a society, work to destroy the God-given rights of God’s children all for the purpose of placing the value of an animal above that of “the image of God.”

Ignorance and hatred causes people to defend animals because they are God’s creation. All of God’s creations have a place and a purpose in our lives (we were given dominion), for the short span of time we are here on earth. If God intended wolves, or any other animal, to have a place at the table with humans, they too would have walked upright, had thumbs, had a brain capable of knowing right from wrong, and could sit down over a cup of coffee and talk things out.

Interpol: allowing citizens to carry guns in public is most effective way to prevent terror attacks

How long would the jihadis at Charlie Hebdo, Westgate, Mumbai – and many other terror attacks to come – be able to continue killing if they were surrounded by armed citizens? Interpol states that the only way to stop such attacks is to allow citizens to carry arms (the only alternative to an armed citizenry is “extraordinary security” surrounding every area where many people meet – train stations, super markets, schools, etc. – which is of course completely unrealistic). If guns are illegal, only violent criminals, fanatic jihadis and our over-worked, understaffed police will have them.

In case you are unsure whether it is a good idea that citizens legally own firearms: Switzerland has very liberal gun laws and one of the lowest percentages of homicide in the world. Interesting statistics on guns, homicides and firearm related accidents in the US here.<<<Read More>>>

In Protest of Protecting Hybrid Wild Dogs, Sheep Flock to Eiffel Tower

““It’s a bit like asking what is the point of an eagle, or a piece of music, or a painting. The wolf is part of life,” Patrick Boffy, the head of Ferus, told the BBC. “It returned naturally to France – the only southern European country where it had disappeared.”

“In France, we need to learn, little by little, how to live alongside wild animals again,” he added.”<<<Read More>>>
