Thought for the day: Thank God for pork chops and “frikadeller”.

 It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond the following requirements:  You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell. (Acts 15:28-29

The other day we found a whole pork loin selling at $1.59 a pound at Wegmans. We picked it up and my wife made the most wonderful stuffed pork chops. The meat juice, when heavy cream, flour, water and some secret ingredients are added, makes the most wonderful gravy. we had our son and family over last Sunday, and the two year old grand daughter, small for her age as she is, ate almost a whole stuffed pork chop by herself, saying “I like it” over and over again.

Another food I love are Danish “frikadeller”. They are like Swedish meatballs, but bigger and made entirely from ground pork. Properly spiced they are just magnificently delicious. See the picture!

884223The principal agricultural export product from Denmark is pork in all of its forms. They have the last few years exported more and more to Russia, but a few months ago, after the collapse in oil prices, they suddenly stopped importing Danish pork. The pork mounds grew, filling up the slaughterhouses. What to do?

It is time to introduce pork in the political discussion.

Denmark has received their fair share of mid-eastern immigrants and refugees. They are now so many that they have started to demand they be served certifiably non-pork based food exclusively. Some communities responded by stopping to serve pork altogether in schools and municipal institutions so as not to hurt the feelings of Muslims. Such was the case in Randers, a seaport city in Northern Jutland, a town with a large slaughterhouse, processing pigs for export.

Monday a week ago the city council had enough. They voted (16 to 15) that pork products must be served at all meals in all schools and institutions. The Muslim children can still opt out of their ham and cheese sandwich, taking only cheese on their sandwich.

Yes there is pork in Danish politics. How about good old U.S.A.?

Iowa is holding its annual Pork Congress January 27-28, just before the Iowa caucus. Time for pork politics?

As for me and my house: Thank God for pork chops and “frikadeller”!

 

 

alpolitikerne har stemt ja til et forslag fra Dansk Folkeparti og Venstre om, at det skal være et krav hos alle kommunens institutioner, at svinekød skal være en del af madplanen.

Byrådsmedlem i Randers for Velfærdslisten Kasper Fuhr Christensen var et af de 15 byrådsmedlemmer, der stemte nej til forslaget.

Han kalder beslutningen »unødvendig«, fordi der ifølge ham ikke har været problemer på kommunens institutioner.

»Jeg synes, at det er fuldstændig absurd, når der nu ikke har været henvendelser fra utilfredse forældre. Det er et problem, som man har opfundet ud af den blå luft. Det er stor svineståhøj for ingenting,« siger han.

Forslaget om at servere svinekød for både de muslimske og ikke-muslimske børn blev stillet efter, at flere af kommunens institutioner havde valgt at ophøre med at servere svinekød for børnene.

DF’er i Randers: Frikadelleforslag er blevet misforstået

Et af de steder, hvor man havde valgt at tage hensyn til de muslimske børn ved i stedet at servere halalkød, var Børnehuset Jennumparken, som Jyllands-Posten beskrev sidste år.

Dengang sagde institutionens leder Bente Gråkjær, at det vigtigste ifølge hende ikke var, hvordan kødet blev slagtet, men derimod om børnenen fik en ordentlig kost.

»Der er jo efterhånden også mange etniske danskere, der ikke spiser svinekød. Hos os har vi mange vigtige udfordringer at arbejde med, og så skal maden ikke gøres til en konflikt. Det vigtige er, at børnene får god og nærende kost,« sagde hun.

Muligheden for at forbyde svinekød har institutionerne i Randers Kommune med mandagens beslutning ikke længere. Fremover skal institutionerne i stedet sikre, at »dansk madkultur skal være en del af de kommunale institutioner.«

Danske muslimer ønsker, at der bliver taget hensyn – men får et nej

Under byrådsmødet stillede medlem af Børn- og skoleudvalget, Mikael Firlings Mouritsen (S), ifølge Randers Amtsavis spørgsmålstegn ved, hvordan en forældrebestyrelse skal kunne forstå begrebet dansk madkultur

Manden bag forslaget, byrådsmedlem for Dansk Folkeparti Frank Nørgaard, understregede dog ifølge Ritzau, at forslaget ikke handlede om mistillid til institutionerne og forældrebestyrelserne.

»Vi vil bare sikre svinekød i vore institutioner til de, der ønsker det. Det handler ikke om generel mistillid til institutionernes bestyrelser. Men flere steder i landet forsøger man at luske igennem, at der ikke skal serveres svinekød i institutioner,« sagde Frank Nørgaard ifølge Randers Amtsavis.

En undersøgelse, som Wilke sidste efterår foretog for Jyllands-Posten, viste dengang, at 83,4 pct. af de danske muslimer mener, at der skal serveres halalslagtet kød i danske vuggestuer, børnehaver og skoler.

Omvendt svarede kun hver fjerde ikke-muslimske dansker, at institutionerne skal tage hensyn til de muslimske børns madvaner.

 

Thought for the day: Pray continually.

First Thessalonians 5:17 “pray continually” is short and to the point, only two words, as short as “rejoice always” and “Jesus wept”.  That is a tall order, it gives no wiggle room, we should always be in an attitude of prayer. How is that possible? I have other things to do.

Prayer is communication with God. It is mostly non verbal, thinking about and listening to what the Holy Spirit living within you wants you to do every moment of every day, certainly in your day-dreams, and maybe even in your dreams. I take this as one of the richest privileges of being a Christian.

The other day I read in the news that about 150 Somali-Muslim employees of a Colorado meat processing plant were fired after they walked out on the job, demanding prayer time, and refused to return.

Approximately 200 employees at Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan staged the walkout, demanding various blocks of prayer time throughout the day, but a small number returned, according to The Denver Post.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is demanding their reinstatement and return of their prayer privileges and continuing use of the prayer room the company had generously provided for them until then. This had worked well for many years,  the company allowed them to go off and pray in groups of 2 or 3 so as not to shut down the assembly line, but the Somali Muslims started to demand that they all should be allowed to pray at the appointed prayer times and only those times to comply with Sharia law.

Why was that so important that they rather lose their jobs than yield to the company policy of staged prayer?

Muslim prayers are different from Christian prayers. Christians can pray at any time, Muslims are prescribed to pray their “Contact Prayers” at specific times, five are obligatory: Pre-dawn, midday, afternoon, after sunset and before going to bed. I take the midday prayer as an example. It cannot begin until the sun has passed zenith, the highest point on the solar arc. If you start too early Allah will not hear your prayer. This means you cannot use standard time but must use solar time. Solar noon is early in the eastern part of a time zone, and about an hour later in the western part of the time zone. In addition it matters which day of the year it is Solar noon in November is half an hour earlier than solar noon in February. Add two minutes to that, and you are allowed and commanded to do your prayers, you and everybody of like faith, turning to Mecca, thus fulfilling Sharia law.

The purpose of these proscribed prayer times is to round up all believers and exercise mind control. You know who your buddies are, and you also know who is an infidel. This is totalitarianism, following the directives of the Imams. In Muslim dominated territories, when the call to prayer is sung from the minarets everybody stops what they are doing, turns to Mecca, prostrates in a very prescribed position and recites their memorized prayer in Medieval Arabic.

I am so thankful to have access to God at any time, giving praise, giving thanks and asking God for His will for me and others, for the hour, for the day and for the future!

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16

 

 

 

 

Sweden tasting the bitter fruit of embracing “Refugees.”

Sweden tasting the bitter fruit of embracing “Refugees”.

The Swedish citizens of Märsta,Mârsta an exurb of Stockholm, Sweden woke up a few days ago with a message in their mailboxes. It was from the religion of peace, and it read: (First the seal of ISIS, meaning “Muhammad is the messenger of God”).ISISpamphlet

IN THE NAME OF GOD, THE MERCIFUL, THE COMPASSIONATE!

You who do not believe will be decapitated i 3 days in the middle of your houses and we will afterwards bomb to death your rotten bodies!

You must choose 1 of these 3 options:

1- Convert to ISLAM!

2- Pay the protection tax! (Jizya, a tax on unbelievers mandated in Sharia law).

3- You will be decapitated!

The Police will not rescue you from being murdered!

It started last summer in Gothenburg with similar threats to Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian immigrants, some of which had converted to Christianity after coming to Sweden, others were Christians since beginning of Christianity. The Police did not take the threats that seriously, deeming them mere harassment.

The pamphlets also appeared in other cities, but the difference now is that many Swedes, mostly from “Sverigedemokraterna,” (a party critical of the immigration polices of the Government,) finally are starting to put up a fight.

Sweden is in trouble. The Police avoids entering immigrant areas for domestic disputes, rapes and minor violence, preferring to let the immigrants solve their internal disputes, sometimes using sharia law. This has emboldened the immigrants and Sweden now has the second highest incidence of rape in the world, second only to South Africa.

The Sweden Democrats entered the Swedish Riksdagen in 2010 with 5.9% of the vote. As punishment the right of center government greatly liberalized immigration criteria. The Sweden Democrats doubled their vote in the 2014 election, and the government choose to yield to the Social Democrats rather than form a coalition with the Sweden Democrats.

The Sweden Democrats may now be the largest party,  having doubled again since the last election, being larger than either the Social Democrats and the Moderate conservative party. The next general election is not until 2018, but the anger is growing since Sweden is being totally overrun with “refugees”

To put things in perspective, Sweden is expecting an influx of 190,000 unskilled and unemployed migrants this year — equivalent to 2% of Sweden’s current population. The number is as if 6.4 million “immigrants”  arrived in U.S. in one year, or 1.3 million in Britain. …

 

 

 

 

 

If Pilgrims were refugees, are Refugees Pilgrims? A Limerick.

President Obama said yesterday that the Pilgrims were refugees, too.

What he is really saying is that the refugees are pilgrims, advancing the doctrine of the Islamic totalitarian Caliphate worldwide.
Way to go.
“The Pilgrims were refugees too.”

Are refugees Pilgrims? Who knew?

For the Caliphate’s sake

they spread death in their wake.

That’s how their dominion once grew.

In this Thanksgiving season we are to count our blessings and give thanks. A thankful spirit is a healing spirit. But Jihadists among the refugees is hard to give thanks for. But the admonition from scripture (1 Thessalonians 5:18) is :  in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Notice that it does not say for everything, but in everything. Even Jonah gave thanks with a song of thanksgiving (Jonah 2:10) when he was in the belly of the big fish.

Thanks. Now I feel much better.

 

The Sarah Palin campaign song.

Ode to Sarah Palin. The campaign song.

(Best sung to “This ole house” by Stuart Hamblen.)

Verse 1. Sarah Palin is a leader, Sarah Palin is a wife,

Sarah Palin is a mother, And she knows the way of life

She was born in Sandpoint, Idaho, Alaska got her call,

was called Sarah Barracuda as State Champ of basketball

Refrain:

Ain’t no time to linger longer, Ain’t no time to stay behind,

We must step up to the challenge For she is one of a kind.

Ain’t no time to watch destruction, Nor to take our freedoms light.

Ain’t no time for politicking. We are ready to fight the fight.

 

Verse 2. The ecology runs better, Thanks to clean, pure CO2.

Grows more food to feed the hungry, That’s what Climate Change will do.

But Obama, Bernie, Hillary  Think more of One World Rule;

Dream of Carbon Sequestration; They are stubborn as a mule.

Refrain.

Verse 3. Sarah Palin to the rescue, Sarah Palin to our aid,

Sarah Palin to the forefront ‘gainst the cronies being paid.

On our knees we plead for mercy; On our knees we pray for grace.

For the battle is the Lord’s and In His will we’ll run the race.

Refrain.

Verse 4. In this world of evil people She will stand for what is right.

While as Christians we are humbled It is God who leads the fight.

With the Clintons and their Spirits, And Obama and Islam,

And their hate for true religion, It is hard to keep the calm.

Refrain.

Verse 5. Sarah Palin undefeated, Sarah Palin unafraid,

Sarah Palin uncorrupted By the Devil’s best plans laid.

It is time to stand for virtue, It is time to stand for truth.

It is time to vote, be counted So this land regains its youth.

Refrain.

 

 

 

Verse 66 of the Obama Impeachment song. Obama said: ISIL is contained.

Verse 66 of the Obama Impeachment song. Obama said: ISIL is contained.

In an interview with George Stephanopolous on ABC’s Good Morning America President Barack Obama said: “I don’t think they’re gaining strength. What is true, from the start our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave.”
That same day the horrendous multiple Islamic terrorist attacks took place in downtown Paris, under maximum terrorist alert, and over 100 innocents were murdered.
Which leads to verse 66 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

I said “ISIL is contained”

when they wage Jihad unrestrained.

I maintain “no ground they’ve gained”

I’m father of lies – fit to be caned.

Here is the complete impeachment song: http://lenbilen.com/2015/02/25/the-complete-obama-impeachment-song/

Which is more threatening? The attack in Paris, or Climate Change?

Watching with horror the multiple simultaneous Islamic terrorist attacks on innocent civilians in Paris, France, while Paris was under the highest possible alert for terrorist activities, the French President Hollande among the spectators at a soccer match between France and Germany, and the climate control conference COP21 only two weeks away, the words of President Obama still rings in my ears:

“My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change, an international accord that potentially we’ll get in Paris. My definition of leadership is mobilizing the entire world community to make sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.”

Obama is also quite proud of his milestones on climate change, particularly after reaching a “historic” deal with China in 2014.

“The historic climate change announcements that we made last year in Beijing have encouraged other countries to step up, as well, increasing the prospects for a stronger global agreement this year,” Obama said in September during a meeting with Chinese President Xi at the White House. This historic agreement means that China is allowed to emit six times more CO2 than U.S.A. by the year 2030.

According to a well-researched article by Bjorn Lomborg, peer-reviewed, entitled “Impact of Current Climate Proposals” the predictions of how a total success in implementing all climate mediation recommendations, the result will be:

This article investigates the temperature reduction impact of major climate policy proposals implemented by 2030, using the standard MAGICC climate model. Even optimistically assuming that promised emission cuts are maintained throughout the century, the impacts are generally small.

  • The impact of the US Clean Power Plan (USCPP) is a reduction in temperature rise by 0.013°C by 2100.
  • The full US promise for the COP21 climate conference in Paris, its so-called Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) will reduce temperature rise by 0.031°C.
  • The EU 20-20 policy has an impact of 0.026°C, the EU INDC 0.053°C, and China INDC 0.048°C.
  • All climate policies by the US, China, the EU and the rest of the world, implemented from the early 2000s to 2030 and sustained through the century will likely reduce global temperature rise about 0.17°C in 2100.

These impact estimates are robust to different calibrations of climate sensitivity, carbon cycling and different climate scenarios. Current climate policy promises will do little to stabilize the climate and their impact will be undetectable for many decades.

Of particular interest is the impact of the US Clean Power Plan (USCPP) with its reduction in temperature rise by 0.013°C by 2100.

How much is 0.013 degrees? It is about as much as the adiabatic cooling of the atmosphere occurring between the feet and the head of an average sized person.

For this Obama is killing our Coal mining, while still calling the China climate agreement a success, allowing them to burn over half of the coal in the world.

And this is the most urgent danger facing us today?
