Happy Thanksgiving from The Liberty Journal. May you and your families be blessed this day of feasting and giving thanks for what we have.

June 20, 1676

“The Holy God having by a long and Continual Series of his Afflictive dispensations in and by the present Warr with the Heathen Natives of this land, written and brought to pass bitter things against his own Covenant people in this wilderness, yet so that we evidently discern that in the midst of his judgements he hath remembered mercy, having remembered his Footstool in the day of his sore displeasure against us for our sins, with many singular Intimations of his Fatherly Compassion, and regard; reserving many of our Towns from Desolation Threatened, and attempted by the Enemy, and giving us especially of late with many of our Confederates many signal Advantages against them, without such Disadvantage to ourselves as formerly we have been sensible of, if it be the Lord’s mercy that we are not consumed, It certainly bespeaks our positive Thankfulness, when our Enemies are in any measure disappointed or destroyed; and fearing the Lord should take notice under so many Intimations of his returning mercy, we should be found an Insensible people, as not standing before Him with Thanksgiving, as well as lading him with our Complaints in the time of pressing Afflictions:

The Council has thought meet to appoint and set apart the 29th day of this instant June, as a day of Solemn Thanksgiving and praise to God for such his Goodness and Favour, many Particulars of which mercy might be Instanced, but we doubt not those who are sensible of God’s Afflictions, have been as diligent to espy him returning to us; and that the Lord may behold us as a People offering Praise and thereby glorifying Him; the Council doth commend it to the Respective Ministers, Elders and people of this Jurisdiction; Solemnly and seriously to keep the same Beseeching that being perswaded by the mercies of God we may all, even this whole people offer up our bodies and soulds as a living and acceptable Service unto God by Jesus Christ.”

I really don’t believe most people in America who support Marxist ideology actually know they support Neo-Marxism. Considering it’s being disguised as Progressivism, it’s easy to understand. Merely painting this as a Democrat phenomenon would be unjust. It’s an issue that affects so-called Republicans as well. It’s probably not intentional, but harmful nonetheless. We call this group “useful idiots”. They perpetuate this hard-left, so-called, Progressive agenda (Neo-Marxist) influence partly through hateful partisan politics. You ask the average Joe, who may hold one or more of the following beliefs, why they support Marxism or Communism and you will most likely get a resounding denial of that charge. Hence, the term “useful idiot” describes the predicament they find themselves in.

100+ Signs That You’re a Useful Idiot of Marxists:

1. Believe the U.S. Should pass new “comprehensive” immigration laws because the Executive branch of our government unilaterally bypasses and ignores the current laws in place

2. Claim that Americans opposed to illegal immigration, hate legal immigrants and legal immigration

3. Want to have stricter gun laws for law abiding citizens that won’t be followed by criminals

4. Call Constitutional and fiscally-minded members of Congress “domestic terrorist”, “domestic enemies”, “hostage takers”, “spousal abusers”, “wacko birds”, etc.. for wanting America to control spending

5. Promote the idea of curbing run-away government growth is solved by raising taxes and reducing services

6. Call any American who opposes the policies of Obama a racist

7. Believe that having to show an id to vote in America is racist

8. Oppose crony capitalism, unless it’s a democrat in office engaging in it

9. Call anyone who disagrees with you politically a racist

10. Claim that any dislike for President Obama is the results of being racist and hating a black man

11.You’re idea of a political debate is reduced to ad-hominen attacks when you have no facts to back up your claims

12. If you believe that there’s actually such a thing as a “shovel-ready” job

13. Believe that growing the size of government is an effective jobs bill

Today, Veterans Day,  is a day of remembrance and thanks to all of the veterans of our U.S. Military. Always in our thoughts, we give thanks to the sacrifices you have made to keep America a free country. If you see or meet a veteran today, please give them thanks for their sacrifice to America. However, please keep in mind, everyday is a day to give thanks to our brave soldiers.

Thanks to Breitbart commenter “John Rustic” for allowing us to post the public service announcement he created. This is the Progressive/Marxist/Communist way of stifling debate when they can’t win an argument based on facts. Facts? Who needs those pesky things when you can play that card up your sleeve – the race card.

Thought I’d share an interesting reply to a news story I found on the Internet. The sad aspect of the Obama administration’s scandals is that this list only scratches the surface. Thanks, RuNs WiTh ScisSoRs.

“They’ll tell you that the government must violate the rights of the American people to defend us against those that hate our freedoms.”

Quote by defeated amendment sponsor, Justin Amash.

That quote speaks volumes about the mindset of the DC staists’ desire to allow the NSA phone spying program to continue, while clearly violating America’s 4th Amendment. When “big-government” advocates choose to violate American’s Constitutional rights, whether Democrat or Republican, it’s time replace them with elected officials who will stand up for the Constitutional principals on which America was founded.

The amendment (H.AMDT.413 (A070) Amends: H.R.2397 to the 2013 Defense Authorization Bill that would de-fund the NSA phone tapping portion of the Patriot Act (Un-patriotic Act Section 215), introduced by Justin Amash, (R) MI, was defeated in the House of Representatives 217-205, Wednesday, July 24, 2013. Below is the list of Representatives who gave Americans the middle finger instead of supporting the American Constitution. Please call your Representative if, his/her name is on the list and consider voting out those who choose un-Constitutional “Big Brother” government spying programs over the wishes of their constituents.
