[Editor’s Note: The following post is by TDV Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Berwick]

The United States government is NOT concerned about the desert tortoise. There is something much larger at stake…a much bigger reason to lead an armed insurrection against a family’s property as we’ve seen at the Bundy Ranch. What’s for sure is the Bundy Ranch showdown is not over.  Harry Reid assures us something big will happen:

“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”

“We are a nation of laws. not of men women.” What in the world does that mean!? For the laws, by the laws…I guess.

EXPOSED: NYT Caught EDITING, DISTORTING Cliven Bundy’s remarks! See full clip.

Rancher Cliven Bundy poses at his home in Bunkerville, Nevada

Okay, in my recent post entitled, “NYT Brings the Race Card into Bundy Ranch Standoff to Distract from Govt Land Grab”, I stated that I would not revisit this smear campaign and attempt to distraction attention away from the federal government land grab and Harry Reid’s was on Cliven Bundy. However, being a firm believer of righting the wrongs, I make an exception.

The New York Times intentionally edited Mr. Bundy’s interview to make it appear as if Bundy was a racist. Shame on them!!!!!!

Below is a full clip of Cliven Bundy’s remarks about Blacks, Mexicans which all will agree is not racist followed by the version put out there by the New York Times.

Now for the video put out there by the New York Times.

As I said in my earlier post, PREDICTABLE and lastly, Glenn Beck, having done enough harm, you owe Cliven…

Common Core’s Rotten Core #stopcommoncore

Stop Common Core Illinois

Crisis Magazine –

by Sean Fitzpatrick,

Despite recent defense rallies by Bill Gateswars are raging against the embattled Common Core State Standard Initiative, now implemented in 44 states and the District of Columbia. Though criticisms can be leveled at the lack of evidence that the Common Core will lead onward into a brave new world of education, the overarching problem of the initiative is that its strategy is not educational. Standardized, field-leveling information designed for mass consumption with a strict utilitarian agenda is nothing more than a training event, a programming session. Schools are not factories. Education is not indoctrination; it is formation. True education considers and incorporates the role of love in learning and the art of teaching by desire. Extrapolation and examination of real-world facts do not describe a lover’s quest for beauty—and education that fails to capture the heart, fails to educate.

‘Squatters’ took over soldier’s home after he was deployed; outrageous law lets them stay!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

WFLA reported that Julio Ortiz and his girlfriend are living in the home and they know Sharkey doesn’t want them there, but Ortiz said he had worked out a deal with the friend looking after the home to fix it up in exchange for living there free of charge.

“I don’t want problems,” Ortiz said. “We’re not doing anything wrong.”

The soldier’s friend, Lisa Pettus, disputes that there was an agreement. She told WFLA that Ortiz did some work on the home, but she did not know he had moved in until she drove by the house a couple of months later.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Pettus said. “And now they’re using my name to justify this. It’s wrong.”

Pasco County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Ken Doll told WFLA it will take a court order to evict the couple because they have established residency in the home.

“I don’t think I should have to…

April 24: Peaceful Protests Banned

In Venezuela

The Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (Supreme Court) has just ruled the the right to peaceful protest, as guaranteed by the Constitution, is not “absolute” (as is the right to life, for example), and as such, peaceful protests without authorization from the government are now illegal.

The court ruled unanimously that:

Any concentration, demonstration or public reunion that does not receive the endorsement of the respective authorities will make it possible for security bodies, with the goal of ensuring the right to free transit and other constitutional rights, to act to disperse it with the most adequate means, within the framework of the constitution and the law.

In other words, the supreme court is saying that:

  1. The “right to free transit” takes precedent over the rights of freedom to expression and assembly.
  2. As such, from now on, any demonstration must be approved by the government.
  3. Demonstrations that do not receive government approval…

Christ: The Key to Contentment


Philippians 4:6-7

While in prison, Paul penned precious words about the sufficiency of Christ. We tend to attach the idea of contentment to beach vacations and mountain retreats, but the apostle wrote that we are not to be anxious in any place or at any time, because we have the Lord’s peace.

Contentment is the believer’s “birthright.” Peace is part of the spiritual fruit that’s ours when we trust in the Savior (Gal. 5:22). Scripture describes it as an inner peace that passes all understanding (v. 7).

Jesus lived through conflict with a sense of inner quiet, and because of His indwelling Spirit, that remarkable calm also belongs to God’s children. That is important because there are times when we come across a problem with no earthly solution. In situations like that, we learn that self-sufficiency is a lie. We can’t cope alone, but Christ is enough for us.
