Justin Smith posted a Terry Paulson article on his Facebook page. I wish Justin would have placed an attribution link to Paulson’s very erudite thoughts. When I Googled Terry Paulson I found a version but not the same thing on Townhall.com: “Can America’s Moral Compass Be Restored?” That post was dated November 2. Here is a Paulson bio excerpt from his webpage:

So you should understand that Terry Paulson is a man with some earned intellectual cred.
Paulson’s “America’s Moral Compass” on Justin’s Facebook page addresses American leadership choices (obviously Obama’s program for America) that have taken the USA away from everything that made our nation exceptionally great. Paulson starts each paragraph with “Our moral compass is broken when …”
Below you can read Paulson’s thoughts below in its entirety but I’m going to address those broken moral compass issue with a bit of specificity. To be clear the “specificity” is not comprehensive, but I sense you’ll get the point. So here we go.
Paulson: Our moral compass is broken when the Palestinian police state that embraces the destruction of Israel and condones terrorist attacks on innocent civilians is openly defended. When the reported “disproportional” response of Israel to the unprovoked attacks by Islamic extremists who bomb, stab and attack their citizens are equated and described merely as a somehow equivalent “cycle of violence,” America’s moral compass has lost its true North.
Obama, Obama’s Leftist cadres, various RINOs and most of the EU nations want to insure that the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are awarded a sovereign nation at the expense of Israel’s existence. If you believe the propaganda most of these love-Palestinians entities would deny a Palestinian State threatens Israel’s existence. They delude their voters that a Palestinian State would bring a new era of peace to the Middle East. Unfortunately the voters these entities represent for the most part are gullible enough to believe this. The Left oriented entities pushing for a Palestinian State are either completely stupid or they are really selling out Israel to garner an economic benefit from oil rich Muslim nations that hate Western culture AND Jews.
You can to a number of pro-Israel sites that provide the real facts about these haters wrapped in Islam. You can get the quick picture from sites like Palestine Media Watch, Honest Reporting and MEMRI. Here are a couple MEMRI videos showing the villainy of Obama to support these Jew-haters for sovereign nation:
In a lesson delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian cleric Sheikh Khaled Al-Maghrabi said: "Allah is capable of annihilating the Jews all over the world, down to the very last one." Al-Maghrabi compared the rewards of the martyr in Paradise to those of the murabitun in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, saying that while the martyr gets to be married to two virgins in Paradise, the murabit gets 70 virgins. The lesson was posted on the Internet on October 27, 2015.
Following are excerpts:
Khaled Al-Maghrabi: In the blink of an eye and with a single word, Allah is capable of annihilating the Jews all over the world, down to the very last one. But what does Allah want? He wants us to act in order to implement His order. We ask ourselves: What should we do to implement the order of Allah? The most important thing we can do to implement the order of Allah… And this is something that exists in the Al-Aqsa Mosque… We say that ribat in the Al-Aqsa Mosque is the most important mission that can be carried out by a person chosen by Allah to be of the people of Al-Aqsa.
The Prophet Muhammad said about the martyr: His sins are absolved with the first drop of his blood. The martyr's first reward is that his sins are absolved with the first drop of his blood. The martyr's second reward is to be married to two virgins of Paradise. He gets two virgins from Allah. The third reward is that he can vouch for 70 family members. These are the three things that the martyr gets. Compared to the martyr, the murabit gets [more]. The murabit is married to 70 virgins of Paradise. A martyr gets two, but a murabit gets 70. That's 35 times more than the martyr.
Saudi Sheikh Yahya Al-Jana' Waxes Lyrical about the Joys of the Virgins of Paradise - #5094; September 1, 2015 - 04:00
In a lesson posted on the Internet on September 1, 2015, Saudi Sheik Yahya Al-Jana' talks about the joys of Paradise, saying that men will have the strength of a hundred men in Paradise and will be busy "tearing hymens," while the virgins of Paradise, whose breasts are "like pomegranates," become virgins every time again.
Following are excerpts:
Sheikh Yahya Al-Jana': There are not so many women in Paradise. It is mostly men who enter Paradise.
[The Prophet Muhammad] said that some women would not even smell Paradise, although it can be smelled from a distance that would take you 500 years to cross. Why? Because they are unveiled, playing up their charms, wearing tight clothes in shopping malls, and putting on perfume and jewelry, talking to young men, and sending her pictures via filthy social media platforms.
Allah described [the virgins of Paradise] very specifically. He even described their beasts: "Indeed, for the pious there is a place of triumph, gardens and grapeyards, and full-breasted women of equal age." "Full-breasted women of equal age" refers to the virgins of Paradise. Allah described their breasts in order to let you know what awaits you in Paradise. There is no shame in talking about these things. [Allah] wants to make you vie for [Paradise]. This message is directed toward people who lose Paradise because they succumb to momentary lust. The breasts of the virgins of Paradise are like pomegranates. They don't sag. Hey are very beautiful. Where are you, lovers of women? Where are you, you desire these virgins? How many people have lost their promised virgins for the sake of one unveiled whore?
Allah even mentioned sex, in order to make you lust for Paradise. It is not just food, drink, and happiness. There is also sex, as well as women who are nothing like those you meet in this world. Allah said: "Indeed, the dwellers of Paradise will be busy in joyful things that day. They and their wives will be reclining on adorned couches." Abu Mujliz said that he had asked Ibn 'Abbas: "Allah said that the dwellers of Paradise are busy. What keeps them busy? What keeps them busy, oh Ibn 'Abbas?" [Ibn 'Abbas] said: "They will be busy tearing hymens."
Is there sex in Paradise? Yes. Ibn 'Abbas narrated that the Prophet Muhammad was asked: "Oh Messenger of Allah, will we have sex with our wives in Paradise, like we do on Earth?" Muhammad said: "By Allah, a man will have a hundred virgins in a single morning." And what is even more amazing is that each time he returns to one of them, he will find that she is a virgins again and that she is even more lustful and feminine. He will find her a virgin again, not like the women in this world, who hymen is ruptured once, and that's it. Every time he returns from meeting Allah, he will find her a virgin again. The dwellers of Paradise will be given the strength of a hundred men when it comes to eating, drinking, and sex, because some of the dwellers of Paradise may be married off to a hundreds virgins, or even more. He will be given the strength of a hundred men, so that in one morning he will be able to have sex with a hundred virgins of Paradise.
Paulson: Our moral compass is broken when our national leaders tell us that an unverifiable agreement to prevent the development of nuclear weapons by a country like Iran that is publicly committed to the destruction of the United States and our ally Israel is good.
Out of the mouth of Iran’s Supreme Leader:
(CNN) Israel will not exist in another quarter century, Iran's supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said during a speech this week in Tehran, state-run media report.
"I'd say (to Israel) that they will not see (the end) of these 25 years," the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Khamenei as saying Wednesday at the Imam Khomeini Mosque.
Khamenei raised the issue while discussing the recent nuclear deal between Iran and the so-called P5+1 -- the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia -- by which, among other things, Iran agreed to cut its uranium stockpiles and centrifuges and limit uranium enrichment in exchange for the West lifting sanctions against the Islamic Republic. … CNN 9/11/15
The official Obama Administration response to the constant “death to America” chants are nothing political rhetoric to appease their populace. Even Iran’s President Rouhani and Supreme Leader have backed up the Obama assertion. It is electorate idiocy to believe anyone in Obama Administration or anyone in Iran agreeing with the “rhetoric” propaganda.
It seems as if every day now the Iranians work hard to signal to the world that the nuclear deal was simply a step forward for them in their campaign of rage, hatred and ultimate genocide, and not what Barack Obama and John Kerry are claiming that it is: a step by the Iranians into the peaceful family of nations.
“Iranians Rally Around ‘Down With U.S.’ Social Media Campaign,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, November 4, 2015:
“Iranians stormed social media sites on Wednesday to participate in a new state-sanctioned campaign urging users to explain in a written message on their hand why they hate America and support its destruction, according to multiple posts and regional reports.

Slaughter Of The Innocents: ISIS Kills 200 Captive Syrian Children In Horrific Mass Execution [Video]
** WARNING: Graphic Content – Note: There are reports this video is from a year ago now.
Words fail me. This is a new low in barbarism even for the butchers of ISIS. The blood-thirsty Jihadists made 200 Syrian children march out, line up and lie on their stomachs. They then massacred all of them. It is one of the most sickening mass executions I have ever seen and that is saying something. They were forced to lie side by side in a line with their faces in the dirt. At least a dozen gunmen shot into them using rifles and handguns.

An extremely graphic and never-before-seen HD video was recently uncovered, the ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) terrorists brutally capturing and executing 1,500 individuals. The video shows truckloads of hostages being carted away to their death.
The ISIS claims these hostages are Iraq’s Army POWs, driven away in truck loads and then shot them all dead. The video caption stated that there were 1,500 individuals. The video shows their end being shot at point blank in several horrific mass slaughters reminiscent to what we see during Nazi Germany. The young teens begged for their lives as they were made to curse Al-Maliki but to no avail while they were forced to chant “long live the Muslim nation”! (Warning: Gruesome Video)

The end—avoiding an embarrassing attack weeks before a close presidential election—justified the means—lying to the public about what was clearly a planned attack.

LIVE: Hillary Clinton Benghazi Hearing
Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is appearing today before the House Select Committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Washington observers and political junkies have been fixated on this testimony -- which began at 10 a.m. -- for months, waiting in anticipation to see what impact it may have on her campaign.
The pressure is on Republican Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy to produce results or information that differs from Clinton's full day of Congressional testimony on the attack nearly 3 years ago.
The hearing began with heated opening statements from Gowdy and … READ THE REST
Paulson write: Our moral compass is broken when Donald Trump can ride high in GOP polls and hog free media coverage by making grandiose claims and providing daily provocative, personal attacks on other candidates. Candidates without integrity may rise early at the expense of others in a culture without a moral compass. After all, in such cultures, winning is all that matters! In moral cultures, when such lack of character is revealed, support evaporates.
The integrity broken moral compass is probably what caught the eye of Justin Smith. He is not a fan of Donald Trump. However, I do understand why the Donald is popular. Trump’s criticism of a broken immigration policy that allows dangerous people to hop, jump and skip their way across the American border has driven concerned Americans crazy for quite some time. Even though Trump’s wall proposal is a bit ridiculously a non-starter, it sounds like the voice of American frustration.
Let’s be honest. A cutthroat corporate business type might sound like good leadership when Americans have witnessed seven of President Barack Hussein Obama wimpifying the American image from the beginning of his community organizing deception promising a utopian change that never came. Or at least never came for the better of America.
Do you consider Obama a man of integrity? I sure don’t!
Honestly I have a sense that Donald Trump’s integrity is based on what affects his own bottom line. The Donald is Conservative to achieve an objective. Trump is just as capable of supporting abhorrent Left Wing ideas as a bargaining chip to achieve the greater good of his bottom line agenda. This is the primary reason I won’t be voting for Donald Trump in my state’s Primary.
Terry Paulson finishes his thoughts quoting Isaiah 5:20 admonishing voters to discern those who call good as evil from those who call evil as good. Good advice.

The Prophet Isaiah warned, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil….” We would do wise to heed that advice and once again value integrity and character over fame, witty press releases and questionable popularity polls.
