Family ties go beyond color and prejudice…

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence. ~ Matthew 19: 13-15


I bring you the startling facts of just how children are treated around the world, which perhaps should be sent to the likes of Rachel ‘Cry me a River’ Maddow and her liberal progressive DemoMarxist friends, who have suddenly jumped all over the political construct of using children as pawns in a self-serving and dangerous game.

Shameful, really, but unbeknownst to many millions, We the People are regularly faced with the horror and prevalence of violence and sexual abuse against children, which for some reason seems to barely resonate with the liberal progressive DemoMarxists.

As outlined in:

1) Almost half of all sexual abuse victims are children: 15 percent of sexual assault victims are under age twelve, and 29 percent are ages twelve to seventeen.

2) Studies suggest that up to 10 million children in the U.S. witness some form of domestic violence annually and approximately half of them are also victims of domestic violence.

3) Children are also the victims of sex trafficking at horrific rates: In the U.S., the average age of entry into prostitution is between 12 and 14 years old.

4) The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that over 300,000 American children are at risk for sexual exploitation, and that an estimated 199,000 incidents of sexual exploitation of minors occur every year within the United States.

5) The global market of child trafficking is over $12 billion a year, with over 1.2 million child victims.

6) Child trafficking is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the world.

7) From 600,000–800,000 people are bought and sold across international borders each year; 50% are children, most are female. The majority of these victims are forced into the commercial sex trade.

8) Today, as many as 300,000 children, some as young as eight years old, serve in armed government or rebel forces around the world. The only thing more staggering than the prevalence of this violence is the acute emotional, psychological, and spiritual damage done to the children who experience it.

Looking inward at our own, there are currently 400,000 in foster care, together with 1.7 mil kids homeless and 14 mil who go to bed hungry. The taxpayer can’t handle any more. If liberal progressive DemoMarxists really cared about children, they’d send millions to foster kids, adopt them, feed the 14mil etc., but they obviously don’t give a rats petunia for what’s happening to children and youth in America. They want POWER by any means necessary.

The command of Jesus from the Bible reference above to “let the little children come to me” reveals several truths:

  • Children need to be blessed by the Lord.
  • The Lord wants to bless children.
  • Parents should be encouraged to bring their children to Jesus at an early age and teach them His ways.
  • Jesus has regard for the weakest and most vulnerable among us.
  • No matter how compassionate Jesus’ followers are, Jesus Himself is more compassionate still.
  • Those who come to Christ must do so in childlike humilityfaith, and simplicity.

Unfortunately in this day and age, we have allowed the insane among us to dictate the agenda without respite, to the point where we are unsure as to whether we really have a government ‘for the people, by the people’, or whether we are already in the snare of the enemy within.

Tom Trinko has a wonderful column in American Thinker today titled ‘The Big Lie: Leftists Care about Children’, to which his opening goes:

Leftists have a long history of exploiting children to advance the left’s political agenda.  The most recent case is the left’s screeching about the fact that when illegals are arrested for trying to sneak into the country, their children are separated from them.

We know that leftists don’t really care about this because it happened under Obama, and they said nothing.  It even happened under Bush, and they didn’t complain about it then, either, even though they hated Bush. 

Further, the children of American parents who are arrested for a crime are also temporarily separated from their parents.  After all, who would suggest that we put kids in an adult prison?

In addition, we know that if those parents didn’t try to sneak in, but requested asylum at one of the border crossings, they wouldn’t be separated from their kids. 

Finally, it’s not an accident that what the leftists want is for any “family” – even those where it’s possible that the children are actually victims of human-trafficking by strangers – which is caught trying to sneak into America to be let go in America.[end – link to completion at bottom]


When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. ~ 1 Corinthians 13: 11-14
