In God America Must Trust

Once upon a time, in what now seems like a far-distant land, a young President inspired America with the words: “Ask not, what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

Today, despite the fact that their country is rapidly approaching $16 trillion in debt, there are millions of Americans wondering when they are going to get “their fair share” of what their country “owes them”.  Thanks to continued distortion and misrepresentation of the facts by those in whom they have misplaced their trust, these Americans are clueless to the reality that the “hope and change” they were promised will never materialize, never come to fruition.

Not one single time in the history of human civilization has a nation taxed and spent its way into prosperity.  That today so many Americans continue to believe they are “entitled” to “their fair share of free stuff” proves that P.T. Barnum was right many times over.

Americans have watched a “progressive” big government take over the banking industry, use taxpayer funds to purchase auto companies, seize control of the healthcare system, waste hundreds and hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars on failed “green energy” “investments”  and usurp the student loan process.  While this was taking place, the nation plunged deeper into debt, had its credit rating downgraded, suffered continued job losses, experienced stubbornly high unemployment, stagnant economic growth, higher food prices, rising energy costs, the abandonment of border security, a reduction in national security and growing disrespect for America on the international stage.

How did America get from where it was in 1960 to where it is now?

America’s Founding Fathers have been discredited and disrespected, its Constitution has been assaulted and ignored, and most importantly; reverence and respect for God is no longer viewed as a national necessity.

America is the land of Liberty, E Pluribus Unum and In God We Trust.  If Americans are to continue to hold the truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, Americans must return to reliance upon their Creator.  America must restore being one nation, under God.

Americans need to overcome the wrongheaded notion that “progressive” big government will endow them with anything but a future of slavery to a tyrannical State.

America’s Founding Fathers fought a war for freedom from this form of slavery.  They risked everything that they had.  They risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.  And while doing so, they established the idea that Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

That is not freedom from religion.  That is freedom of religion.  It states that America will never be a theocracy.

George Washington, historically remembered as the father of his country said: “Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

We know the names and faces of the famous Founders.  But many anonymous Patriot souls died in that fight against tyranny so that future generations could enjoy the fruits of their struggle. 

A new generation of Americans must now declare to themselves, their fellow Americans and to the world that they would rather die free than live as a slave to “progressive” big government.   That they will exercise their right to worship as they see fit, and defend the right of every other American to do likewise.

Another inspiring President once said: “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.  We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness.  If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

Perversion Rampant in America: Sponsored By Obama and Congress

Can things really get any worse in our nation? Planned Parenthood, “the bastion of breast cancer screening”, is beginning their “National Condom Week” today, Wednesday February 15, 2012. How asinine can anyone get to have a national condom week and celebrate it with such ballyhoo? Is Mr. Condom a national hero or something? Congressional Medal of Honor winner, maybe? Inventor of some life-saving device that will revolutionize life in America and the world?

Martin Luther King only has one day, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln have to share a day, and Condom gets an entire week to himself? What genius thought this up? Only a person with a heart as black as Satan’s could come up with a plan such as this to pervert our children and only people with hearts as black as Satan’s could stand by and let it happen without so much as a whimper of protest.

Sadly Mr. Condom is a perverted character created and honored by Planned Parenthood to destroy another generation of children. In the video, “Hooking Kids on Sex”, they have a section showing 10 year olds how to masturbate and how to install a condom for sexual intercourse. HELLOOOOOOO!!!! Is teaching them to read, write, and count too much trouble or are those just insignificant items the kids don’t need any more?

The real kicker to this is that my tax money, and your tax money, is paying for this trash. Is there anyone in Washington today with any brains or morals at all? Why is this going on? Where are Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul on this? Rick Santorum has stood up and spoken out against the Obama regime’s immoral despotism; and all he gets is grief from the propaganda arms of both political parties and his fellow “conservatives” in the presidential primary race and the so-called “conservative” media.

Where are John McCain and Lindsey Graham on “National Condom Week”? Are they still trying to figure out how they voted to remove the military restrictions against sodomy and bestiality in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011? Where are John Boehner and Mitch McConnell? As Sgt. Carter used to say to Gomer Pyle: “I can’t hear you!!!!!”

Where are the conservatives in Congress who seem to have lost their voices since Obama took over and became Dictator-in-Chief and President for Life of the National Socialist State of Amerika? How many adult men and women are in prison or on sexual predator lists for less offensive actions than this? Is this part of the Islamification of America? Islam hangs homosexuals but an adult man “teaching” a 10 year old boy about sex is just fine. Hypocrisy and perversion go hand-in-hand in the Muslim world. Is this the reason we are seeing this happen here, getting us ready?

The federal government is out of control and no one in Washington is doing anything to stop it. We hear little mouse squeaks from time to time but nothing really substantial, nothing to stand up and cheer about. An entire generation of Americans is being taught perversion and immorality without any opposition from anyone in Congress, the courts, or the media. Our elected “leaders” sit by quietly and allow this to go on because they are afraid of being called “racist” or “closed minded” or “intolerant”? Where are the leaders in government? (Hint: the Republicrats are hiding under their desks not wanting to be seen or heard on this).

The sad truth is that our government is staffed with evil, self-centered, narcissistic despots who are more interested in their own well-being than that of the citizens of this once great nation. As happened in Venezuela we are seeing a despot run over members of Congress who are either so evil that they are complicit or so cowardly evil they are afraid to speak up for fear of receiving criticism from the “enlightened” media.

Hell has come to America and we are seeing it in National Condom Week and the Komen foundation backing down from a moral stance to appease the most evil people in the world. Judgment is coming to America and we find our nation trying to “go along to get along” with the most evil, black hearted people to ever walk the face of this earth.

Adolph Hitler murdered 12 million innocent Jews, Christians, Gypsies, Slavs, Poles, Homosexuals, etc. during his reign of terror in Europe. How many innocent babies has Planned Parenthood murdered while Congress and multiple presidential administrations not only stood by and watched, but gladly paid for those murders? Now the goal is to expand into perverting and sexually abusing our children, and using We the People to pay for it.

Appeasing evil is never a winning proposition. We finally destroyed Adolph Hitler and his evil regime but only after Neville Chamberlain’s “peace in our time” brought the world to the brink of destruction and cost the lives of an estimated 100 million people.

Our federal government is a diseased animal that needs a dose of anti-biotic strong enough to kill the germs that infect it. We can no longer stand by and allow this to happen to our children. The most innocent of our nation are being sold into slavery, the slavery of perversion that they may never recover from.

If this is allowed to stand then I demand that every child molester and child rapist be immediately released from prison. How can men and women be held in prison for sex crimes while this is allowed to happen unfettered; and even condoned by our country’s elected “leaders” and paid for by tax money?

The worst element in all of this is the apathy of the American people. Who will bother to write to demand something be done? Who will call their member of Congress to insist they charge Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Kathleen Sebelius, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, et al. with genocide, taking indecent liberties with a minor, child sexual assault, and a host of other criminal charges?

Unless We the People stand up and take an active role of leadership in America we are going to very soon find ourselves living in the FEMA camps they built in 2009 under SB 645, and are staffing right now with money provided by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011. If American citizens; Christians, Jews, and even atheists and agnostics can’t see what is wrong with this then we are indeed a nation lost to Satan.

To show how much our nation suffers from apathy let me give you an example. I was running for a local school board position, a first-timer in a political race, and lost to the incumbent by a substantial margin. As disappointed as I am to have lost the race I am more disappointed in how I lost. There are in the neighborhood of 10,000 eligible voters in this school district. How many votes were cast? 368, or 3% of eligible voters. If I had won the election I would be only slightly happier. The depth of “I don’t care” from the voters of this nation is the most disappointing thing of all to me. Judgment will fall heavier on those who do nothing than it will on those who fight the battle. Even if those of us willing to fight the battle lose the battle, we will still have stood up for what Jesus called “the least of my flock”.

As our nation teeters on the edge of oblivion only a small percentage of those who can vote will vote. Many of those casting ballots in November will be either corpses or fictional cartoon characters. Such a sad commentary for a nation forged in the blood of those who were willing to die for even a glimpse of a chance to vote for their future.

A “shining city on a hill” has become a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah, ripe for the judgment of God and subjugation by an evil so dark it makes a black hole in space look like the sun.

Copies of this are going to the entire Oklahoma Congressional delegation. I hope you will do the same in your state. Stand up now, tomorrow will be too late.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Media Bias and Cover-up

Why are the main stream media, and even “conservative” media, ignoring the story about John Dummett and the Liberty Legal Foundation in their suit against the Democrat Party over the certification of Barack Obama as an eligible presidential candidate? Why are we, instead, talking about the latest “bimbo eruption” that seems to have no real basis in fact?

John Dummett is a registered, eligible candidate for the Republican presidential nomination for the 2012 elections. He is recognized in all 50 states and by the Federal Election Commission. He and Van Irions of the Liberty Legal Foundation are trying to save a nation from a despot who should never have been on the ballot in the first place. The media that are supposed to be on our side, the side of We the People, ignore the most important development in the “nullification” movement. This case has moved far beyond any other attempt. The reason is the context of the lawsuit. I am not going to go into all of the details here but you can go to this link and find all the details you want to read.

The question being raised by this lawsuit is not the “birth certificate issue” but instead targets the citizenship of Obama’s father. I understand why the main stream media doesn’t cover it, they are the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, of that there is no doubt. What I don’t understand is the “conservative” media remaining silent on this matter. It is a legitimate story with serious consequences to the future of our nation. Yet, even they focus on whether Herman Cain is handling his “bimbo circus” properly.

The point of this article isn’t the legal ramifications and “legalese” of the eligibility issue. My focus is on the lack of reporting on a serious issue in favor of a negative fluff thing with no solid basis. As I stated, I understand the main stream media not covering this because it will effectively remove their “messiah” from the scene and undo everything he has done.

The “conservative” media and the other Republican candidates say nothing, and when asked anything about Obama’s eligibility status shrug it off as nothing but a bunch of “nuts” or “birthers”. It would seem they are afraid of the race card, or just don’t care about the Constitution. I wonder if the 9th Circuit Court, the most liberal in the nation, are “racists, nuts, and birthers” also. They are the ones who said John could pursue this after courts have turned down a dozen or more attempts by others.

Why do the media and talking heads on the “right” spend all of their time trashing any but the most liberal in the Republican Party? They talk about how bad we need a candidate who can beat Obama and then push the most liberal Republican they can find. That tactic worked out well in 2008 didn’t it? The media, those who are supposed to be on our side, completely ignore the issue, and the man, who just might take Obama down; and has certainly gone farther than anyone else ever has. Is that not newsworthy?
Whether or not the media personnel agree with John Dummett is immaterial, they should report the story. What WE the People have available to us in the way of truthful reporting is the internet and blog radio. We must spread the message of this matter and force the media to cover it. The Constitution is in danger of being rendered irrelevant, and those who talk of how they are the “watchdogs” of government are asleep on guard duty. That is a court-martial offense in the military, but standard operating procedures in the press.

The future of America is at stake and those who pledge to inform us objectively and fairly only cover what is “politically correct”. Covering the Cain non-story deflects attention from matters much more serious. Are the “conservative” talking heads really interested in We the People or are they more concerned with their face time on network television? Who is setting the agenda for the “conservative” media? The fate of our nation doesn’t seem to too high on their list of important matters.

It seems to me as if the television network talking heads on the” right” are more interested in keeping the status quo than they are in finding the truth about the eligibility question. Are they doing the job of the “Third Rail”, or are they merely securing their face time by insuring that people like John Dummett, a down home conservative-to-the-bone patriot, are never heard in public?

I would think that these media people would be happy to see true conservatives step up to save our nation, someone putting their life on hold to make a difference. What we see in actuality is media support for professional politicians and the super wealthy who can afford to spend months travelling around the country campaigning, without acknowledging what could be the most important issue we face today.

It seems to me that those media people, the ones “on our side” who have national exposure, are so concerned with their future income that the truth can go by the wayside so they don’t really have to stick their necks out. As soon as any “conservative” commentator with national exposure stands up for the truth in this matter they will be pilloried and they aren’t willing to take that kind of heat. The race card, as lame as it is, will come out against them from the left and their cohorts on the “right”. Since none of them want to be the object of this derision from their peers they remain silent.

Our nation faces a danger more perilous than even World War II. We find our own government trying to subjugate us and those media people who are supposed to be protecting us with the truth wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped them in the face. The “right wing” media is nothing but the propaganda arm of the Ivy League Republican Party establishment. And I don’t mean the party of Reagan, as such is no longer the case. The Republican Party has been inundated with Democrats, politicians and media personnel.

These Democrats, like Rick Perry of Texas, ran from their party when the Marxists began taking over instead of staying and fighting for their party. Others changed over when they saw the pendulum swinging back towards the Republican Party, and rather than be on the outside they decided to “change” parties for the “hope” of acceptance and a lofty position due to their “change of heart”. They didn’t have a change of heart, they had a case of political opportunism and it worked perfectly. We now see the party of Reagan turned into the party of Democrat cowards who ran from one fight and are now running from another one but taking conservatives with them down the road to tyranny and despotism.

Where is the courage in the “conservative” media? Where are the Republican “strategists” and “analysts” who will stand up for We the People, the 67% who call ourselves TEA Party conservatives? Where are the strategists and analysts who have the courage to stand up for the truth? Where are the conservative media people with the courage to take the story of a common man sticking his neck out to save a nation?

It is up to WE the People to spread the word of freedom and truth throughout the land. We cannot count on any media people to help, it is up to us alone. If we will have the courage shown by John Dummett and Van Irions, we can overcome a media biased against us.
The internet and blog-o-sphere are large enough and popular enough that we can spread this message to all corners of our nation. If you will take the time to look at the case being presented, you will see the possibilities. Don’t buy into the hype that it isn’t possible, that is the defeatist attitude the party machines want you to have. Some people in George Washington’s day thought what they were doing was impossible too, but these people forged the freest and most prosperous nation ever seen on this earth.

It is up to us, We the People of These United States, to insure the future freedom of America. It is up to us to stand up and support those like John Dummett and Van Irions, men who will stick their necks out and speak truth when it would be easier to be silent.

Where is the courage in the media to tell the truth about this issue, or any other issue for that matter? Political expediency and political correctness are combining to destroy our nation. The internet and the blog-o-sphere are our source of the truth, not television talk shows. Until the media gets over their egos and begins to put the truth and the best interests of our nation first we will find ourselves going down the path to the total extinction of our freedoms.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God To honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Happy Thanksgiving from CDN and George Washington

It is very easy to get caught up in the travesties of justice, mocking of our nation and insults to her people emanating from our own centers of government and the leaders within. It would not take long consideration to find many reasons for which we could ask the question, “what the heck do we have to be thankful for?”

It also takes very little time to answer that question. Most of all, I am thankful that I have the opportunities and freedoms present simply because I live in America – the greatest nation on Earth.

I am eternally grateful to have a wonderful, loving and supportive wife and family. Without whom all things would be much more difficult and of much less consequence.

I am incredibly thankful for the wealth of talent that has coalesced around the cause of freedom  to bring CDNews to where it is today and the fantastic possibilities presented for its continued success. The leadership team of Michelle Ray, Cindi Appleberry and A.F. Branco make CDN possible. Kira Davis, AiPolitics, Nicole Pearce are the staff members that help get it done. The 40+ contributors that think about, investigate and opine on CDN are the foundation. Without each and every one of them – CDN would still be a lonely personal blog with a few hundred visits a day (you can see them all HERE).

I am, without reservation, thankful for you – our readers, twitter followers, facebook fans, and google+ encircled people (really google.. circles?). You challenge us with your replies, comments and those sometimes #headdesk-causing letters to the editor. I value even those I disagree with in the hopes of beneficial discussion and debate.

Please accept a humble Thank You from all of the staff, contributors and myself. We wish you and your families a warm, festive, family-filled Thanksgiving day.

In closing, Michelle reminded me of the proclamation that gave us this day of thanks. I find it a great proof of the foundation from which all great things in this nation have come from.

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be– That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

America: At a Moral Crossroad

crossroadWe have a major moral issue brewing in America today. The issue is that the vast majority of people considered ‘leaders’ (i.e. political, social, educational and even religious leaders) in America have strayed a long way from the moral, personal responsibility teachings of the One true God of the Bible and have replaced the wisdom of God with the foolishness of man’s wisdom. The Founding Fathers who established this amazing country did not rely on their secular wisdom to establish America’s initial rules and laws. They were on their knees daily seeking the very face of their Creator God asking Him for His wisdom as they tried to establish this country.

Psalm 113:4 —-For the Lord is high above the nations;

His glory is far greater than the heavens.

Now this once great country has never been perfect. The wise people who worked night and day for years to initially establish this country’s rules and guidelines were imperfect sinners. And it was this personal understanding of their lack of inner imperfection and partial darkness that drove the Founding Fathers to understand that this nation could not be properly established (and maintained) if it was not grounded with biblically based moral laws. I am not going to list the hundreds of moral quotes and biblical convictions that these people had. However, I will list a few in order to help the ignorant. (I know a lot of you government educated people were deceived by anti-God, anti-American teachers who never taught you the truth about the biblical founding of this country.) I would encourage any of the rest of you anti-God, anti-American liberals who have more brains than a French fry to do a little research and see that our Founding Fathers clearly saw the absolute necessity of running their newly established government on biblical principles.

John Adams

2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever.”
–Adams wrote this in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776.

The brilliant men who founded this nation clearly saw that if this Christian nation (i.e. her people) strayed from the absolute moral truths of the Bible (has it has today) and instead tries to establish its own nonbiblical ‘do whatever feels good or whatever the people want’ morals, it would not be long before the entire American governmental system would fail!

1st U.S. President George Washington

“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to addcornerstone foundiing fathers the more distinguished character of Christian.”
The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.

As I write this America is at a moral crossroad. Even though there is a group of genuine political patriots trying to resolve this nation’s economic problems it will not last without also re-establishing America’s moral compass. The leaders in this nation must once again publicly put the Divine One (who initially helped the Founding Fathers establish this country) back on His throne in America. Many in positions of leadership in America have kicked God out of the house. We have kicked Him out of the amoral and immoral, failing government school system. We have kicked the Lord out the same hallowed halls of our government’s political system where He was once publicly revered and honored.

Proverbs 12:2 —–The Lord approves of those who are good,

but He condemns those who plan wickedness.

If the fiscally conservative political leaders of this nation do not recognize that the All-Knowing, All-Powerful Creator God of this universe needs to have eminence in all we do in this nation even the plans of these political patriots will fail. Without the Lord being the head of this nation we will never be able to re-establish this once great country’s place of political and social superiority. So simply trying to re-establish economic responsibility in this country will not save America from falling! A balanced and fiscally responsible budget is great, but it will never succeed if we do not also re-establish this nation’s social and spiritual heritage.

Proverbs 16:25 —-There is a path before each person that seems right,

but it ends in death.

 We the people must stop listening to the promiscuous cries of a sinful people who desire nothing more than to live in their wanton pleasures when we try to establish biblically based moral laws and rules in this nation. If this nation is going to survive, American loving patriots needs to publicly rebuke the historically ignorant idiots who cry out, “Separation of church and state” every time biblically moral people try to establish moral accountability in our government. (P.S. There is nothing in our constitution which demands that our government keep religion out of its everyday practices. From day one our country’s governmental buildings were adorned with Bible verses and moral quotes. From day one the political leaders of this land constantly quoted the Bible as they talked to their people. It is only in recent times that human secularists (people who deem themselves smarter and wiser than our Founding Fathers) have tried to push God out of our government. It is only in recent times that anti-God atheists have tried to mislead people into believing that the Lord of the Bible does not belong in any aspects of our government.)

I would love to run these secular miscreants out of the country. I would love to silence their arrogant, deceiving amoral or immoral mouths. Unfortunately I cannot. This is the problem we run into when freedom and liberty have no moral basis. If these miscreants are American citizens they have to right to live here; they have the right to freedom of speech; have the right to their own opinions; they even have the right to thrust their views on others. And as a result when we allow amoral, immoral and unprincipled people to live and rule in a country (that is supposed to be running on God’s moral absolutes) they will always end up doing what is right (i.e. self-pleasing and self-satisfying) in their own eyes.

(Remember, the Lord told us that people who live only to satisfy their own desires love the darkness rather than the Light. Simply being religious does not make one right in God’s eyes!)

The God of the Bible does not play a part in the decision making process of an amoral or immoral secularists. Amoral or immoral people see no problem with murdering a baby that is still in its mother’s womb so they will push for legalization of just that. Amoral or immoral people have no sense of biblical morality so they will want to legalize self-satisfying things like: drugs, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, gay marriage, underage sex, polygamy, pornography etc. etc. And it will only be a matter of time before it these immoral behaviors become legal. After all, if God’s Word is not going to be used as the litmus test for what is moral what will be used? There is nothing else to use but the feelings and opinions of a sinful people. And if we humans are left to decide what feels right or wrong we will never have moral absolutes. (P.S. Again, Jesus said that people who reject God (i.e. God’s ways) and instead live for themselves seek the darkness rather than the Light.)

As the people in a nation become more and more immoral, it is plain to even see today in America, that our country’s laws will also become more and more immoral. Today in America, there are biblically immoral things being done that are now legal.  These same immoral behaviors would have put a person in prison a hundred years ago! If we are not going to use the absolute moral truths of God’s Word as our gauge, then it will be soon be anything goes because people will soon say, “Who are we to judge the morals of another?” If we as a nation are not going to use the perfectly designed, engineered and authored Word of God to determine right from wrong then who or what will decide what is right from wrong? Again, without the hindsight and knowledge of God’s Word there is nothing to stop amoral and immoral people from passing laws which make the most wicked and vile things imaginable ‘legal.’

John Adams in a speech to the military in 1798 warned his fellow countrymen stating, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Those of us who are truly concerned about this nation must see and agree to repair not only America’s economic issues but also her moral issues. America the nation needs to repent of her tolerance of sin. The God of the Bible tells us that not only are things like: lying, cheating, stealing and greed wrong, but so are socially acceptable things like: adultery, casual and flippant divorces, fornication, witchcraft, mind altering drug abuse and drunkenness, etc. If those who are trying to re-establish this nation politically are not willing to publically and privately re-establish this nation biblically, they will fail—no matter how good or sincere their intentions.

“I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”
The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.

 As I said before, this nation was not established out of a vacuum. This nation did not happen by accident. All true fundamental Christians believe that the hand of God played an incredible part in establishing America the Nation. And what was the reason God supernaturally intervened? The people trying to establish America were continually going to God in prayer as they sought His wisdom in establishing America’s rules and regulations. (Again, I am not going to debate the idea of how biblical and God-searching America’s Founding Fathers were. It is a ‘no-brainer’ historical fact. Research it yourself or keep your mouth shut!)

Patrick Henry
Ratifier of the U.S. Constitution

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia, p. iii.

“The Bible … is a book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.”
Sketches of the Life and Character of Patrick Henry, p. 402.

 A Bible based godly peer pressure needs to be re-established once again in America. People need to understand the freedom and liberty without biblical morality leads hedonism! If sinful people are given absolute freedom and liberty without moral absolutes anarchy and moral depravity will eventually lead to not only the individual destruction of people but also to national destruction of that country. We once again need to have people in America see that acts like adultery, fornicators, casual divorce and unwed pregnancies are shameful things. I am afraid that a large percentage of conservative, God-fearing Americans really do not want to go back to using the Bible as America’s moral compass. (I hope I am wrong!) I know many fiscally conservative patriotic people and politicians want to ‘right the economic ship’ in America. My concern (as a constitutional Christian), is do these same people also want to ‘right’ America’s moral ship using the absolute morals of God’s Word? Or are they going to continue to tolerate the foolish secular psycho-babble doctrines and philosophies of sinful humanists?

This country needs to stop ‘encouraging’ and/or promoting pornography as a freedom of speech. It is destroying the moral fiber of our children! How spiritually stupid and spiritually blind have ‘we the people’ become when we ‘see’ pornography as an American freedom or as a right to free speech? True patriotic Americans needs to shout from the streets that liberty and freedom are demoralizing and destructive in a society where the moral absolutes of God’s Word are not only ignored but ‘legally’ stifled! Patriotic Americans need to re-establish the idea that it is no longer going to be socially acceptable to use illegal or mind-altering drugs (which would include casually using illegal drugs for ‘medical’ reasons) and prescription drugs as tools of pleasure. In the Bible the Lord uses words like witchcraft, sorcery and drug usage synonymously. America has become a society of dope-heads. There are very few families in America these days that have not seen the devastating effects of mind altering illegal or legal drugs.

More Americans need to understand the absolute absurdity in pushing God out of our country. Who would have ever thought that there would be a day in America when God would be pushed out of our country’s government arena? Do these anti-religious idiots really comprehend how stupid they look in the eyes of God? These anti-Bible Americans think that things like the Bible and God are a joke or fairy-tale. These secular fools actually believe they are smarter than the One who created them!

 

Jesus-picJesus Himself asked, “Why do you call Me Lord and not do as I say?”

We have a lot of people in America who go to some type of church/religious service without any desire to worship the God of the Bible. We have church/religious people ‘worshiping’ (in one form or another) everything animals, trees and even angels.  The Mythical ‘Mother Nature’ or ‘Mother Earth’ has replaced the one True Creator God of the universe. And yet we wonder why America is failing. The God of the Bible will not help those who chose to worship (false) pagan gods or secular ways. Our God is a jealous God. And He has the right to be. After all, He is the One who created all this. God demands that we serve Him or else there is a consequence!  God will never bless a nation (or a people) when they reject Him for the ways of mythical or secular philosophies.

American loving citizens need to see that America is in a fight for her very survival! This once God-loving, Bible-preaching country is going the way of other once great Christian nations which went secular—into moral and economic decay! The Bible says that the nation which fears God will prosper in all that it does. God promises to honor those societies or nations that honor His moral code. On the other hand, the same Bible says that the Lord laughs at those societies and/or nations which fall to ruin because they devised ways that were not God’s ways. The Bible says that God is not mocked. Whatever a person/society/nation sows it what it will reap.

Look at the moral mess we have in America today! The sacred God-given act of marriage between one man and one woman is no longer considered sacred but an option. America has become a society where a large percentage of Americans see nothing wrong with ripping a living baby out of its mother’s womb and throwing it in the garbage like a piece of rotten meat. This one, vile, disgusting legalized baby killing practice gives God enough reason to wipe America off the map! It used to be in this nation that any woman who was willing to have sex with whatever came along was called a whore or prostitute. Today, ‘sleeping around’ is not only acceptable is it promoted, pushed and glorified! We have over fifty types of sexually transmitted diseases being passed around these days. Immoral behaviors that were for many years hidden in the dark closets (by those who practiced them) are now not only tolerated they are publically encouraged in the name of freedom and liberty! These behaviors are a result of amoral and immoral freedoms and liberties in a country that once used God’s Word as its moral compass!

 

Thomas Jefferson said

“The only foundation for useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion.”

As President, Thomas Jefferson not only signed bills which appropriated financial support for chaplains in Congress and in the armed services, but he also signed the Articles of War, April 10, 1806, in which he:

“Earnestly recommended to all officers and soldiers, diligently to attend divine services.”

 The bottom line is that if America the Nation continues to push the absolute morals of the one true God of the Bible out of its everyday governmental and everyday personal life practices, the Lord will leave us to our own demise.

Psalm 33:12 — Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…..

 Our American Constitution and our Bill of Rights are amazing documents. However, they do not even come close to the incredibly perfect Word of God! A lot of very wise and intelligent human beings worked night and day for years to establish these amazing documents. However, these wonderfully crafted humanistic documents do not come close to the unfathomable depth of the writings of the Bible. And from what our Founding Fathers have clearly said, neither of these documents will survive if they are not controlled by the laws of God’s Word.  Man, even at the highest secular levels of intelligence do not come close to the wisdom of God.

John Adams
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence said

“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God … What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”
Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.

So again, freedom and liberty are wonderful blessings in any nation–when they are used in morally righteous ways. When people begin to use their freedoms and liberties to do whatever feels good or seems right in their own eyes (like same sex marriage) we will fall as a nation. And when ‘we the people’ begin to use our freedoms and liberties to sell, make or do whatever helps us to prosper financially (like legalized pornography) it will not be long before wickedness, corruption and debauchery will prevail in every part of that nation. Darkness and light cannot exist together. The Lord of the Bible tells us in Scriptures that because all humans are born sinful, with need the Lord’s guidance and wisdom in all that we do. When ‘we the people’ chose to walk away from the guidance and wisdom of the one who Created us–no matter how sincere we are and no matter how strong our convictions are about what we believe to be right and wrong we will walk in darkness. Americans, we need to walk back towards the Light! The ways of the All-Knowing, All-powerful Creator God of the universe are our only hope of survival.

Help Wanted: Conservative Statesmen

The Tea Party is getting larger and stronger all the time. It is now a force to be reckoned with in Congress, in state legislatures across the fruited plain, and in the daily news cycle. Yet it lacks one thing. One thing that if present would take it from a force to be reckoned with to an irresistible force. What the Tea Party lacks is the one thing the Founding Fathers had in abundance. And what is that? Statesmen. People like Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry were integral to the American Revolution and the establishment of the Constitution. The Tea Party lacks the latter-day equivalents of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington and James Madison. Politicians the Tea Party has aplenty. Statesmen, though, are sorely lacking.

Using the Tea Parties analogy to the American Founding, I think you can fairly compare people like Palin and Bachmann to Henry and Sam Adams. That isn’t enough though. We need people like Paul Ryan, and yes, Chris Christie (even if I am not completely sold on him). People who are sensible and pragmatic and educated and experienced. If we want real change, I think the founding of our country is a good model to look at. Hopefully, we can avoid a physical revolution. I believe the founders died so we wouldn’t have to go there. But they do provide a good model for getting things back on the right track. We should look at the whole model. If things had ended in Boston Harbor, we would still be a protectorate of the United Kingdom right now. That isn’t good enough. – ALRMCoug

In response to ALARMCoug’s blog post, HighHorse came back with this bit of analysis concerning the Tea Party:

There is no Samuel Adams on the scene in America today. The centrist Republican establishment sees to it that a modern day Samuel Adams or Thomas Jefferson will not get anywhere in America.

Your example is interesting because Samuel Adams, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were known radicals even in that day. The Tea Party of today is radical as were those guys mentioned. We can expect a watered down version that will never create real change in our country. Moderates will see to it that the true radicals never have representation.

It isn’t just bloggers that recognize the need for leaders of our nation who possess the qualities found in such abundance among those who brought forth the United States of America. Academics see it as well:

The raising up of that constellation of “wise” Founding Fathers to produce America’s remarkable Constitution, whose rights and protection belong to “every man,” was not a random thing…. One historian called our Founding Fathers “the most remarkable generation of public men in the history of the United States or perhaps of any other nation” (Arthur M. Schlesinger, The Birth of the Nation [1968], 245). Another historian added, “It would be invaluable if we could know what produced this burst of talent from a base of only two and a half million inhabitants” (Barbara W. Tuchman, The March of Folly: From Troy to Vietnam [1984], 18). – Neal A. Maxwell

Furthermore, the Founding Fathers recognized for themselves the remarkable nature of the founding of this nation. Describing the drafting of the U.S. Constitution. In a 1788 letter to Lafayette, he said:

“It appears to me, then, little short of a miracle, that the delegates from so many different states (which states you know are also different from each other in their manners, circumstances, and prejudices) should unite in forming a system of national Government, so little liable to well-founded objections.” 3

It was a miracle. Consider the setting.

The thirteen colonies and three and one-half million Americans who had won independence from the British crown a few years earlier were badly divided on many fundamental issues. Some thought the colonies should reaffiliate with the British crown. Among the majority who favored continued independence, the most divisive issue was whether the United States should have a strong central government to replace the weak “league of friendship” established by the Articles of Confederation. Under the Confederation of 1781, there was no executive or judicial authority, and the national Congress had no power to tax or to regulate commerce. The thirteen states retained all their sovereignty, and the national government could do nothing without their approval. The Articles of Confederation could not be amended without the unanimous approval of all the states, and every effort to strengthen this loose confederation had failed.

Congress could not even protect itself. In July 1783, an armed mob of former Revolutionary War soldiers seeking back wages threatened to take Congress hostage at its meeting in Philadelphia. When Pennsylvania declined to provide militia to protect them, the congressmen fled. Thereafter Congress was a laughingstock, wandering from city to city.

Unless America could adopt a central government with sufficient authority to function as a nation, the thirteen states would remain a group of insignificant, feuding little nations united by nothing more than geography and forever vulnerable to the impositions of aggressive foreign powers. No wonder the first purpose stated in the preamble of the new United States Constitution was “to form a more perfect union.”

The Constitution had its origin in a resolution by which the relatively powerless Congress called delegates to a convention to discuss amendments to the Articles of Confederation. This convention was promoted by James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, two farsighted young statesmen still in their thirties, who favored a strong national government. They persuaded a reluctant George Washington to attend and then used his influence in a letter-writing campaign to encourage participation by all the states. The convention was held in Philadelphia, whose population of a little over 40,000 made it the largest city in the thirteen states.

As the delegates assembled, there were ominous signs of disunity. It was not until eleven days after the scheduled beginning of the convention that enough states were represented to form a quorum. New Hampshire’s delegation arrived more than two months late because the state had not provided them travel money. No delegates ever came from Rhode Island.

Economically and politically, the country was alarmingly weak. The states were in a paralyzing depression. Everyone was in debt. The national treasury was empty. Inflation was rampant. The various currencies were nearly worthless. The trade deficit was staggering. Rebelling against their inclusion in New York State, prominent citizens of Vermont had already entered into negotiations to rejoin the British crown. In the western territory, Kentucky leaders were speaking openly about turning from the union and forming alliances with the Old World.

Instead of reacting timidly because of disunity and weakness, the delegates boldly ignored the terms of their invitation to amend the Articles of Confederation and instead set out to write an entirely new constitution. They were conscious of their place in history. For millennia the world’s people had been ruled by kings or tyrants. Now a group of colonies had won independence from a king and their representatives had the unique opportunity of establishing a constitutional government Abraham Lincoln would later describe as “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

The delegates faced staggering obstacles. The leaders in the thirteen states were deeply divided on the extent to which the states would cede any power to a national government. If there was to be a strong central government, there were seemingly irresolvable differences on how to allocate the ingredients of national power between large and small states. As to the nature of the national executive, some wanted to copy the British parliamentary system. At least one delegate even favored the adoption of a monarchy. Divisions over slavery could well have prevented any agreement on other issues. There were 600,000 black slaves in the thirteen states, and slavery was essential in the view of some delegates and repulsive to many others.

Deeming secrecy essential to the success of their venture, the delegates spent over three months in secret sessions, faithfully observing their agreement that no one would speak outside the meeting room on the progress of their work. They were fearful that if their debates were reported to the people before the entire document was ready for submission, the opposition would unite to kill the effort before it was born. This type of proceeding would obviously be impossible today. There is irony in the fact that a constitution which protects the people’s “right to know” was written under a set of ground rules that its present beneficiaries would not tolerate.

It took the delegates seven weeks of debate to resolve the question of how the large and small states would be represented in the national congress. The Great Compromise provided a senate with equal representation for each state, and a lower house in which representation was apportioned according to the whole population of free persons in the state, plus three-fifths of the slaves. The vote on this pivotal issue was five states in favor and four against; other states did not vote, either because no delegates were present or because their delegation was divided. Upon that fragile base, the delegates went forward to consider other issues, including the nature of the executive and judicial branches, and whether the document should include a bill of rights.

It is remarkable that the delegates were able to put aside their narrow sectional loyalties to agree on a strong central government. Timely events were persuasive of the need: the delegates’ memories of the national humiliation when Congress was chased out of Philadelphia by a mob, the recent challenge of Shay’s rebellion against Massachusetts farm foreclosures, and the frightening prospect that northern and western areas would be drawn back into the orbit of European power.

The success of the convention was attributable in large part to the remarkable intelligence, wisdom, and unselfishness of the delegates. As James Madison wrote in the preface to his notes on the Constitutional Convention:

“There never was an assembly of men, charged with a great and arduous trust, who were more pure in their motives, or more exclusively or anxiously devoted to the object committed to them.” – Dallin H. Oaks

The Tea Party has its heroes to be sure:

  • Chris Christie is a fiscal genius who is reclaiming the State of New Jersey from the leftist teachers union in that state.
  • Governor Scott Walker made history as he disemboweled the public employee unions in Wisconsin.
  • Justice David Prosser of the Wisconsin State Supreme Court beat back a socialist candidate in dramatic fashion.
  • Sarah Palin is a continual thorn in Barack Obama’s side with her instantly classic Facebook posts.
  • Rush Limbaugh bedevils the progressives so much that he is their inspiration to attempt to take away our Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press.
  • Paul Ryan’s deficit reduction bill is so powerful that the socialists are compelled to lie about it in order to try to convince independent voters that it is evil. And we all know that the independents are the block of voters who decide elections in this country.
  • Donald Trump has revived the argument about Obama’s missing birth certificate. Stay tuned, this issue isn’t over yet!
  • Michele Bachmann is such a powerful conservative voice that she has a real shot at the Republican nomination for president in 2012.

But still, the Tea Party is missing its statesmen. We are talking about leaders of the stature of Winston Churchill, Mohandas Karamchand Ghandi, Benjamin Disraeli, and yes, Benjamin Franklin. Where are the leaders for our time? Surely we can do better than the RINO Jon Huntsman. Do we really think that Tim Pawlenty is in the same league as James Madison? Does the thought of Mitt Romney as president inspire comparisons to John Adams? Barack Obama Lite is not what this country needs. Obama is not less-filling and he sure doesn’t taste great, either.

The Tea Party needs leaders of unabashed conservatism. The Tea Party needs leaders with the courage of their convictions. The Tea Party needs leaders who respect the Constitution and who are willing to fight in defense of that inspired document of freedom. The Tea Party seeks God-fearing leaders who recognize that the State is subservient to Him who land this is. The Tea Party needs a charismatic, humble, yet strong leader who exudes confidence in the defense of liberty. The Tea Party needs the second coming of the Founding Fathers.

If Obama is to be defeated in the 2012 elections then the Tea Party must produce a leader who can rally the conservative troops. A divided conservative base will lose the election. An energized conservative base will sweep Obama into the ash heap of history. Let us pray we find our statesman before it is too late.

 

Is Obama Evil? A commentary on Obama, Communism, and our Fight for Freedom

obama and communismI have written previously on the theme that Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetero, might be insane. It is a worthy topic, and deserves more play in journalistic circles than it is receiving. But after yesterday’s astonishing performance by Obama during a radio interview on Univision, there is another possibility that must also be explored. The question? –  Is Obama evil? That’s right, the big “E”. It isn’t an either/or situation. There is nothing preventing Obama from being both insane and evil. But let’s concentrate on the evil meme here. Like the insanity question, Obama’s state of morality deserves equal attention.

Returning to Obama’s radio performance, here’s the most relevant quotes:

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.” – Barack Obama

And as if that isn’t enough, here is a follow-up, in which Obama gives his opinion about Republicans such as Senator John McCain who support effective border security and strong immigration law enforcement.

“Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” – Barack Obama

We are witnessing a President of the United States literally declaring war on some of its citizens! Obama has just declared that Republicans are his enemy. He is inciting violence towards conservatives. He is demanding that Latinos be his enforcers against his sworn “enemies.” Obama, in essence is openly advocating racial warfare in The United States of America. He is making racist statements, imploring the Latinos to rise up and punish his “enemies”. That’s just great – a Nobel Peace Prize winner stumping for the punishment of his “enemies”. The man, who ran as a post-partisan uniter, has become the most divisive president in the history of this country.

Furthermore, Obama draws the lines of division quite clearly for us. Those American citizens who do not support his policies “aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” And just what ARE your core American values, Mister President? Would you care to elaborate?

Let’s take a guess. Obama’s core values constitute the following:

  • Destroy America’s ability to defend itself
  • Bankrupt America
  • Enrich himself and his cronies
  • Tear down border defenses and allow unbridled trespassing upon United States soil
  • Control the actions of American citizens via the rationing and withholding of medical care
  • Impose complete governmental control over the manufacturing sector of the economy
  • Impose complete governmental control over the financial industry
  • Impose complete governmental control over the press, wiping out Fox News and any other news organization that dares to broadcast or print opinions that oppose Obama’s agenda
  • Declare war upon American patriots
  • Indoctrinate children in Marxism
  • Apologize to the world for any and all instances of American exceptionalism
  • Destroy all carbon-based energy production companies
  • Impose control over every aspect of citizens’ lives
  • Incite class warfare
  • Incite racial warfare
  • Impose redistribution of wealth on a massive scale
  • Remove God from the lives of all Americans and replace the worship of God with the worship of the state and Obama
  • Create a system of central command and control over the economy through appointed Czars, bypassing the authority of the United States Congress
  • Make the courts of the land subservient to the will of Obama. Appoint stooges as judges so that all court decisions will follow communist doctrine
  • Dictate what types of food people may eat
  • Force students to obtain their school funding through the government by eliminating the right of private financial institutions to offer student loans
  • Make illegal the selling of incandescent lightbulbs
  • Destroy the private sector of the economy – all jobs must come via government
  • Mandate the killing of unborn babies through taxpayer funded abortions
  • Make Americans slaves to communism

Furthermore, Obama then lies about each and every policy position – Then acts like a buffoon, grins, and denies that he is a socialist. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are living through the most dangerous period of American history. There is a would-be dictator attempting to forcibly impose his will upon us.

This is no longer a fight between conservatism and liberalism. This is a fight between good and evil. Obama even attempts to redefine what is good and what is evil. You’re right, Obama, we don’t share your values. No righteous person ever would. Even the Bible, (you remember the Bible, don’t you, Mister self-professed Christian?) foretold the day of Obama:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5: 20.

It is a small step from Obama’s current rhetoric to genocide. Hitler did it just like Obama is leading up to  it now. Obama is now calling for the destruction of his enemies – and he wants the Latinos to do it. Hitler called for the destruction of the Jews – and he wanted the S.S. to do it. We have arrived at a time in our nation’s history when a violent gang has infiltrated our government, our schools and universities, our think-tanks, our law enforcement agencies, our workplaces, our military, and every other aspect of our society. And Obama is leading the charge.

Pogrom

During the deportation of survivors of a pogrom in Iasi to Calarasi or Podul Iloaei, Romanians halt a train to throw off the bodies of those who had died on the way. Romania, July 1941.

The Jews have a word for what Obama is now alluding to. The word is Pogrom. Look it up. Study it. You will find it instructive. Pogroms, essentially, are the systematic cleansings of populations, with the atrocities aimed at selected groups of people. It is selective genocide. The Jews in Russia suffered pogroms. The Jews in Europe suffered another pogrom at the hands of the Nazis. The Armenians were victims of a pogrom as well. The Holocaust was one giant pogrom. And now Obama is alluding to exactly that – a pogrom.

Obama’s rhetoric has become ever more inflammatory the closer we have come to November 2, 2010. He feels his power slipping away and he is striking out like a petulant child who has been denied the biggest cookie on the plate. What was a slick, controlled, and contrived message during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has descended into gutter talk of retribution against his political “enemies.” Obama isn’t talking about the issues anymore. Obama is talking about eliminating his “enemies.”

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson, who served as Secretary of Agriculture in the Eisenhower administration, warned us of the dangers of the secret combination that had infiltrated our society. Benson was mocked and scorned for his words. He was considered a lunatic by many of his critics. But, considering the unfettered dismantling of our freedoms and the destruction of our society by the Democrats during the past two years, more and more people are seeing the Democrats in general and Obama in particular for exactly what they are – a communist gang.

Here is Benson’s warning, published in November, 1979. See the complete talk here. And here are some excerpts, below:

It is well to ask, what system established secret works of darkness to overthrow nations by violent revolution? Who blasphemously proclaimed the atheistic doctrine that God made us not? Satan works through human agents. We need only look to some of the ignoble characters in human history who were contemporary to the restoration of the gospel to discover fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. I refer to the infamous founders of Communism and others who follow in their tradition.

Communism introduced into the world a substitute for true religion. It is a counterfeit of the gospel plan. The false prophets of Communism predict a utopian society. This, they proclaim, will only be brought about as capitalism and free enterprise are overthrown, private property abolished, the family as a social unit eliminated, all classes abolished, all governments overthrown, and a communal ownership of property in a classless, stateless society established.  – Ezra Taft Benson

Having established that Communism in all its forms, and under all the code names it goes by, which we now see include progressive, liberal, Democrat, socialist, and environmentalist, etc., Benson declared that the prophets of communism were among us, promising Utopia in exchange for our freedom. Is this not what we see permeating our society now? Have the communists in America not created a welfare state? Does not Obama seek to expand  it?

Next, Benson goes on to explain the nature of the battle.

Today, we are in a battle for the bodies and souls of man. It is a battle between two opposing systems: freedom and slavery, Christ and anti-Christ. The struggle is more momentous than a decade ago, yet today the conventional wisdom says, “You must learn to live with Communism and to give up your ideas about national sovereignty.” Tell that to the millions—yes, the scores of millions—who have met death or imprisonment under the tyranny of Communism! Such would be the death knell of freedom and all we hold dear. God must ever have a free people to prosper His work and bring about Zion.

I am a witness to nations and people deprived of their freedom. I was there. I watched that great Iron Curtain drop around nations which formerly had prized their freedom—good people. I was aghast as these were written off by the stroke of a pen. I saw Poland abandoned by nations with a heritage of freedom—the United States and Great Britain.

I was in Warsaw in June of 1946. I shared a room with seven other men in the Polonia Hotel, the only hotel even partially intact in the great city of Warsaw. Our ambassador, Bliss Lane, had his office in part of the building. He was so saddened that he resigned and wrote the book I Saw Poland Betrayed, which detailed the failure of the United States and England to keep their promise that the Poles would have a free election after the war.

I saw firsthand our great nation stand by at the time of the Hungarian revolution—when “freedom fighters” with bare hands and stones resisted bullets, tanks, and artillery. I confess I was ashamed at the response of my country—a nation which I believe the Lord intended to be an ensign of freedom to all others. Freedom did not die that day (23 October 1956) for Hungary alone. Hope died for many in other captive nations and has only recently been somewhat revived by courageous men willing to speak against oppression.

Since that day, I have seen the Soviet Union, under its godless leaders, spread its ideology throughout the world. Every stratagem is used—trade, war, revolution, violence, hate, detente, and immorality—to accomplish its purposes. Many nations are now under its oppressive control. Over one billion people—one-fourth of the population of the world—have now lost their freedom and are under Communist domination. We seem to forget that the great objective of Communism is still world domination and control, which means the surrender of our freedom—your freedom—our sovereignty. – Ezra Taft Benson

Benson, a high-ranking leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, included in his article the mention of a warning the First Presidency (the highest ranking level of leadership in his church) issued all the way back in July of 1936 regarding the goals of communism.

“Communism is not a political party nor a political plan under the Constitution; it is a system of government that is the opposite of our Constitutional government. …

“Since Communism, established, would destroy our American Constitutional government, to support Communism is treasonable to our free institutions, and no patriotic American citizen may become either a Communist or supporter of Communism. …

“We call upon all Church members completely to eschew [shun] Communism. The safety of our divinely inspired Constitutional government and the welfare of our Church imperatively demand that Communism shall have no place in America” (signed: Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., David O. McKay, The First Presidency, in Deseret News, 3 July 1936; italics added).

Marion G. Romney

Marion G. Romney

Benson, and his contemporaries recognized that the greatest danger of communism to America was that we, as Americans, had accommodated the infiltration of communists into our society. Americans have keenly noticed that Obama doesn’t seem to have a religion. Yes, he calls himself a Christian – but his rhetoric is decidedly unchristian. The only religion Obama truly seems to have is the worship of Obama. He is following precisely the communist model – he has replaced the worship of God with the worship of the state. And as head of the state, that means he worships himself. Another religious leader, Marion G. Romney, pointed out this fact in September of 1979:

“Communism is Satan’s counterfeit for the gospel plan, and … it is an avowed enemy of the God of the land. Communism is the greatest anti-Christ power in the world today and therefore the greatest menace not only to our peace but to our preservation as a free people. By the extent to which we tolerate it, accommodate ourselves to it, permit ourselves to be encircled by its tentacles and drawn to it, to that extent we forfeit the protection of the God of this land” – Marion G. Romney

Both Benson and Romney argued that the way for Americans to protect themselves from communism was to return to worshipping God with full fervor. Additionally, Benson laid out some other actions that could be taken:

We must not tolerate accommodation with or appeasement toward the false system of Communism. We must demand of our elected officials that we not only resist Communism, but that we will take every measure to prevent its intrusion into this hemisphere. It is vital that we invoke the Monroe Doctrine. – Ezra Taft Benson

Also,

We must study the inspired Constitution and become involved in the political process ourselves. – Ezra Taft Benson

I do not care if the political left declares me, like Ezra Taft Benson, to be a nut. I do not shrink from calling Obama a communist, for that is what he is. I refuse to stand idly by while Obama attempts to destroy my beloved America. America is the great bastion of freedom and liberty in a perilous world. If we give up America we lose the world. Obama knows that. That is why he and his fellow communists are so intent on taking complete and utter control over us. They know that if they conquer America then will control the world.

George Washington praying

George Washington praying

Now let me share something with you that you made find surprising. Our first president, George Washington, saw in vision, this day and age. He saw the threat that would come from our domestic enemies, such as Obama. He understood, through divine revelation, the war we must fight to retain our precious liberty from those, such as Obama, who would deprive us of our liberties.

Our nation was founded by spiritually-minded leaders, including Washington. At Valley Forge, in the winter of 1777, Washington received this vision of the future of The United States of America. This vision was reprinted in December of 1880 by The National Tribune, the U.S. war veterans’ newspaper. This vision was also reprinted on December 21, 1950 by The Stars and Stripes.

The Vision

Anthony Sherman was in Valley Forge and received the report of the vision first hand from George Washington. Sherman recalled: “You doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.”

“One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone. When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual. There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.”

Washington Stated:

“This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

“By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.

“A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

The First Peril – The Revolution

“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world – Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

‘Son of the Republic,’ said the same mysterious voice as before, `look and learn.’ At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

The Second Perl – The Civil War

“A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

“Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, `Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word `Union,’ bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, `Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

The Third Peril – America’s Judgment?

“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.

“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

“Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!

“Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: `While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word `Union,’ he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, `Amen.’

“The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, `Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union’. With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.

Do not doubt for an instant that we are in the midst of a literal war with evil. Obama is currently leading the charge against us. Undoubtedly, there are others in the shadows, who guide him in this war against liberty, but we will likely never know much about them. That isn’t important now. What is important is that we, as a nation, take a stand against the evil arrayed against us. I have hope that America has finally woken up. The emergence of the Tea Party is evidence of that fact. The polls forecasting a conservative victory on November 2, 2010 are evidence to the power of this resurgence of conservatism and God-loving peoples of all faiths.  The midterm elections are just one more battle in the fight against evil. The midterms will represent an important victory in the war against evil – but it will not end that war.

Remain vigilant, America. Go to the polls in immense numbers and reclaim your freedom. Know that our day and our battles were prophesied by President George Washington, by Ezra Taft Benson, by Rush Limbaugh, by Sean Hannity, by Jim DeMint, and by countless others who perceive liberals, progressives, socialists, Democrats, and environmentalists for what they really are – communists.

The war is against communism. It always has been. It always will be. Obama is merely the latest leader of those who would enslave us. Rise up, America and take back that which has been stolen from you. The stakes are high. The dangers are even higher. But we will emerge triumphant, as George Washington saw in vision. America will survive. We will win this war against tyranny.

Get out and vote. Let nothing stop you from this sacred duty. We fight out battles at the ballot box. We fight our battles in the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere. We are not violent. Like Ghandi preached, we fight a bloodless war. The communists will bring bloodshed to this battle but we will not reciprocate. The highest of all victories are won peaceably.

Vote!

And Pray.

America’s New Independence Day

November 2nd, 2010 will forever be remembered as a new Independence Day. It will be the day honoring the masses of freedom-loving patriots who will rise up to reclaim their liberty, their constitutional rights, and their right to worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences. Declaration of IndependenceIt will live on forever in our hearts as the day when latter-day heroes, awakened from their slumber by the machinations of the forces of evil, fought an epic battle and emerged victorious. Bruised, yes; battered, yes; bloodied, yes, and yet despite all odds, the great American people will see through the propaganda of the Obama regime, defy the intimidation tactics of the New Black Panther Party and the SEIU, ignore the elitist, statist JournoListers of the Main Stream Media, and storm the polls in a national swell that shall sweep away the absolute rule of their oppressors.

America was founded on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It was founded by God-fearing men. The founders recognized the hand of the Almighty in the creation of the United States of America. And modern day patriots remain true to the principles upon which this country was founded. It will be these patriots who will save The United States from its enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. “Mankind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day! – President Thomas Whitmore (from the movie Independence Day)

Independence Day Speech

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20

The opposing forces in this war of ideology transcend the labels of Democrats and Republicans. This is no less than a war of good versus evil. It is a war for the souls of men. Akin to the plight of patriots during the War of Independence, there are enemy sympathizers among us. Those once known as loyalists – because of their loyalty to the British Crown – have been replaced by moderates, RINOs, political party elites, special interests, labor unions, and behind the scenes political operatives.  The propaganda, manipulations, and machinations of the forces of darkness are attempting to redefine what is good – claiming it to be evil. They know that they will win this war if they can confuse us by turning morality on its head. They know they can win if they can convince us that a man in the White House is our Messiah. They know that if they can sell us on false prophets such as Cass Sunstein, Valerie Jarrett, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Harry Belafonte and Van Jones, that they will win. They know that if they can replace our true heroes such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln with the likes of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Steny Hoyer, and Barbara Boxer, that they will win. With craftiness, cunning, and hearts of stone, they demonize our heroes and patriotic leaders such as Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh. They even have the audacity to demonize God himself. They are without morals. They are without honor. They are ruthless. They are corrupt. They are the very definition of evil. That is the nature of our enemies. They are powerful. They are pervasive, and they are entrenched. Yet, they will fail.

Why, you ask? – Because we surround them. And for all the danger the Obama Administration represents to freedom, it has been a blessing in disguise. The arrogance, ineptitude, pride, stupid decisions, and outright corruption of the forces currently in power have awakened the sleeping giant that is the true America. Not since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor has this sleeping giant stirred from his sleep, arisen, and defeated the enemy. But now the forces of good have awakened and joined the fight.Patriots, such as my friend Jessica Puente-Bradshaw, have arisen out of obscurity and taken on the entrenched elites. Jessica is one of my heroes.  A mother of several young children and burdened with all of what goes into raising these children in righteousness, Jessica recognizes the perils facing America. She came out of obscurity to run as a Republican candidate for Congress representing the 27th District in Texas.

We need a clear plan for change to put our country back on track. We need real tax reform to help revitalize our economy, not federal government health care mandates. We need to help create jobs that put people back to work, not federal government energy mandates on businesses. We need to protect the rule of law when it comes to immigration, not federal government amnesty proposals. – Jessica Puente-Bradshaw

Unfortunately, Jessica did not win her primary election. But she sure did her part in raising the awareness level in Texas to the dangers facing America. And I have a sneaky suspicion that the story of Jessica isn’t over. She’ll be back. Jessica didn’t crave personal power.

Jessica Puente-Bradshaw

Jessica Puente-Bradshaw

She didn’t run for election in a quest for vain glory. No, Jessica did it to save America. She did the right thing for the right reason. And the beauty of it all is that America is now filled with a multitude of people just like Jessica. Though Jessica didn’t win her race, others just like her are winning – and turning the Liberal/RINO elite upside-down. We are winning. The enemy is running scared. They are in full panic mode. The latest conservative victories came in Tuesday’s primaries. Delaware and New York just witnessed conservative patriots win their primary elections – ousting entrenched members of the political elite. Countless more Jessica Puente-Bradshaws are preparing to flood the polls on November 2nd.

Take heart, fellow conservatives. We have joined the battle with the forces of evil. Although they appear to surround us – given all the attention their every word receives in the Main Street Media – the truth of the matter is that we surround them. This is still a center-right country. This is still a God-fearing country. This is still a freedom-loving country. And we will win.

The fight won’t be easy. November 2nd is not the end of the war. It is merely an opening skirmish, now that the forces for good have been roused from their slumber. But we slumber no more. The Silent Majority is no more. We’ve become the Vocal Majority – thanks to Jessica Puente-Bradshaw and millions of others just like her. Jessica, I salute you! You are ahead of the curve and I am proud to call you my friend.
