In Blog Post 0178 you can read Joseph Goebbels’ quote — it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people. You can also read his quote in Quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.
We need to be slow to judge people, and slow to anger. Those who wish to control us, use against us, our weakness to swiftly judge and to get angry. They keep repeating lies — lies that are designed to divide.
It is difficult to avoid judging people,
when quick harsh judgment is all around us every day.
Almost no matter where we go, people seem to be angry, saying bad things about people — frequently these uncomplimentary words are about people they don’t even know. People often seem to be eager to cut someone else down. These harsh unkind words are not only focused on strangers, but just as easily shift focus to people close to home: people in our schools, our churches, at work, in our neighborhoods, clubs … and in our own families .
Blog post 0090 goes into detail about “Label-Libel” — a term I found in a book
from a New Mexico teacher supply store.
Human nature is a combination of both good and bad. Those who have evil goals in mind to control other people, frequently take advantage of the weaknesses of human nature (greed, selfishness, dishonesty, pride, vengeance, gossip, hatred, anger, impatience). They encourage and feed these weaknesses, in order to divide us from each other, so that they can accomplish their own selfish goals.

November 24, 2016 – Thanksgiving Day – Revised Nov. 25, 2016 (6:41 pm)
We spent Thanksgiving with one of our sons, his wife, and three children. All our family gives thanks to our Lord for the blessings He has showered on the United States of America, and on each of us.
My three local grandchildren have been studying American history at home for several years. sadly, most children who attend public schools and many private schools, are taught to hate the United States. All my grandchildren (and their parents, aunts and uncles) love America.
Our three local grandchildren have a large American history library, which includes the Rush Revere American history books that Rush Limbaugh has written for chilcren (They are enjoyable reading or listening for adults as well). The first book in the series is a time-travel adventure leading up to, and including, the first Thanksgiving.
Following is a link to the collection of American History Rush Revere books:
The Further Adventures of Rush Revere: Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims / Rush Revere and the First Patriots / Rush Revere and the American Revolution / Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner
Why did the Pilgrims have the first Thanksgiving? Continue reading

Joe Wheeler attended a local Conifer Kiwanas Club meeting September 28th. Joe is one of those people who doesn’t make a big deal about his presence, but he makes you feel like he is an old friend.
In order to give us each a chance to look through his newest book, Christmas in My Heart – Volume 25, he passed out several copies. One of the men sitting at the table said, “It brings tears to your eyes – looking into the America that we grew up in, and that we see slipping away, and in some cases, is gone or almost gone.”
For the past 25 years, Joe has annually published a new book of Christmas stories. He chooses his stories from his life-long efforts to build a library that reflects the America that some of us still remember or the America we have heard about from our parents and grandparents.
Those who have only heard the distorted, revisionist, censored and made-up “history” about our American heritage — get glimpses of the America they never knew or heard about. Joe’s books are light in the manufactured darkness.
I encourage you to purchase Joe’s Christmas in My Heart books. They will ignite in your heart your old love for our country — or create a new love. The books will encourage you to stand up for our country — against those who are robbing us of the American past. Continue reading
