The late Ezra Taft Benson, Secretary of Agriculture during the Eisenhower Administration, spoke out frequently on the subject of a secret combination that was striving to overthrow our society with the aim of taking total control over all men everywhere. He warned that organized crime was ubiquitous throughout our society; terrorists, drug gangs, various Mafias, and bloody tyrants. But he said they all paled in comparison to the one great secret combination that dwarfed all others because of the scope of its broad penetration into society and its ruthless effectiveness in the advancement of pure evil. This secret combination, warned Benson, was based on communism/socialism. Benson said that the motivation of this, the worst of all conspiracies, was “to get power and gain.” In order to accomplish this end, said Benson, this vast conspiracy of communists and socialists was conspiring to “overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries.” Benson was mocked and ignored by the media, the government, and society at large. Benson was undeterred by the mockery from the leftists. He continued to warn us about the secret combination, “A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing in its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.”
Bringing religion into the discussion, Benson said the following:
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…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.
Since 1917 this godless counterfeit to the gospel has made tremendous progress toward its objective of world domination.
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.
—Ezra Taft Benson. A Witness and a Warning. Ensign Magazine. November 1979.
Benson was continuously mocked for his talk of secret combinations; however history is proving him right. Ignored for scores of years, appeased by governments near and far, the communist/socialist and yes, Democrat conspiracy, is close to the complete takeover of The United States of America. And it is no accident that men and women of faith are leading the fight today against the communists and socialists who hide behind the deliberately misleading label of “Democrat.” This is not a fight between left and right. In all honesty, this is a fight between good and evil. This is why Catholics, Evangelicals, Mormons, Presbyterians, Quakers, Seventh-day Adventists, Episcopalians, the Disciples of Christ, and members of numerous other religions are united together to fight the common enemy. The election of Barack Obama did two things: (1) it brought into power a member of this communist/socialist conspiracy, and (2) it awoke the sleeping giant that is the good, conservative, God-fearing people of the Earth. The battle has been joined.
Despite the repeated warnings from Benson and others like him, we were slow to recognize the evil that comprises socialism, liberalism, communism, and their front man—the Democratic Party. We failed to see what was happening as this secret combination infected itself into our judiciary, our Congress, and now even the office of President of the United States. We can’t say we weren’t warned. The Rev. Billy Graham once famously said “their communism must die or Christianity must die.” Truer words were never spoken. Barack Obama’s assault on the religious freedom of Catholics doesn’t have the end goal of forcing Catholics to bow their heads and bend their knees to his Administration and capitulate on a matter concerning health insurance. The truth of the matter is that Obama, like communists everywhere, seeks to eliminate God from our society. The basic problem that Obama and this communist/socialist secret conspiracy have with God is that God represents a power greater than their own. God competes with the power of the State and thus Communists/Socialists/Liberals/Democrats seek to destroy God and to also destroy the faith that people have in God.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.
Those hallowed words from the Declaration of Independence say it all. We derive our rights from God and not from the State. That is pure sacrilege to the secret combination that exists within our citizenry. Communism cannot tolerate the existence of God for God is greater than they. It is no accident that the Tea Party and their allies, good men everywhere, overwhelmingly come from the ranks of those who believe in God. That is where the line is drawn and we all must choose this day. Do we follow evil or do we follow God? There have always been fence-sitters, those who prefer to be lukewarm instead of hot or cold. But these are becoming fewer and fewer. The threat we face today is creating an environment in which we must individually choose which side to which we belong. Are we with those, like Obama, who prefer Alinsky over God? Are we with those who worship the Earth; in essence worshiping the Creation rather than the Creator? Are we going to sit idly by while this secret combination completes its takeover of our country?
There are those who “get it” and are not afraid to be counted among those willing to rise up against this secret combination of tyranny. One of these is Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who said on February 5, 2012 that “as prime minister of Israel, I will never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation.” Another such voice of courage came from the lips of Andrew Breitbart who fearlessly proclaimed “I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.” But perhaps the most fitting quote comes from Ronald Reagan: “How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”
This coming general election might very well be the last chance we have to avoid the total destruction of our society. If we are to defeat Obama then Evangelicals might have to overlook their theological differences with Mitt Romney. Mormons might have to overlook their theological differences with Rick Santorum. Newt Gingrich might have to realize that the needs of his country are greater than his own personal career goals. The Tea Party members might have to swallow their social conservatism just enough to vote for a Republican they don’t totally support. Why? Because we all know what will happen if we don’t!
Make no mistake about it. The secret combination that Benson spoke of is real. It has often been said that Obama is a Manchurian president—wise words from wise men indeed! Obama proudly proclaims his devotion to the working class, the poor, the homeless and the hungry. We have been fooled in the past by such false proclamations from other Democrats, but no more. At a superficial level Obama’s redistributionist doctrine doesn’t seem all that bad. Obama promises the feed the hungry, cloth the naked, and give relief to the sick and the afflicted through nationalized health care. But when we take our blinders off we clearly see that Obama’s policies are designed to take away our personal liberties, deny us our God-given freedoms, and make us all dependent upon a socialist government. Obama seeks to force philanthropy upon us. Obama seeks to remove from us our sacred responsibility to care for our own needs, our self-reliance, and replace it with a collectivistic pot into which all our personal property is thrown. We have to be strong enough to resist the impulse to dip our hands into that collectivistic pot. It is tempting to believe in the notion that all of our needs will be taken care of by a benevolent government. But it comes with a steep price. And remember this, my friends, once freedom is lost it is only regained with the shedding of blood.
We have allowed this gang of socialists, communists, leftists, Democrats, liberals, environmentalist nut jobs, and Occupiers to gain almost total control over us. They hold the United States Senate. They are plotting to regain control of the House of Representatives. They control the Presidency. They hold seats on the Supreme Court and on countless lesser courts of law. They control the Main Stream Media. They control higher education. The teacher unions, for all practical purposes, control secondary education. They have infiltrated our religions, giving us people like the Rev. Wright, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. They control large segments of our economy. And they are very close to victory. Does that scare you? It should. We have appeased this conspiracy because (1) we didn’t want to offend them, and (2) we shoved our heads in the sand in hopes that they would disappear. Well, they haven’t disappeared. And, thankfully, millions of Americans now realize the danger and are banding together to fight this monstrosity. Some, like me, fight them on Twitter. Millions more are fighting on Facebook. Countless others are lambasting liberals at Town Hall meetings. Others fight simply by removing their children from public schools in order to avoid the forced indoctrination of communist philosophy and instead are homeschooling their children. Others are showing the courage of running for public office. And tens of millions more stand ready to vote this disease out of office. We need them all. On this Super Tuesday, it is my hope that we can finally unite behind a single candidate. We need to bring this primary season to a close, decide on a candidate, and move on to the real fight against Obama and his gang that seek to enslave us.
In conclusion, I find solace in the words of Ronald Reagan.
“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.”
May God bless you all, my dear patriots. We have arrived at that rendezvous with destiny foreseen by Ronald Reagan. We have until November 6, 2012 to proclaim liberty to all the land. I pray that our efforts will be successful.
