A PROFOUND DECLARATION?


Okay, the tease is in by using that question for the title of my blog post.  I can hear some asking, “Roy, what are you talking about?”  Others may be saying, “Not another of his rants.”  Regardless of which side of the political, racial, social, or spiritual you find yourself, I hope you realize an axiom that is universal and timeless.  I hope you will hear what I am going to say and awaken even more than you are now as to the source of our struggles and how to combat the nefarious forces working to strip us of our liberties.

What is the profound declaration or the universal and timeless axiom that to which I am referring?  “Liars Lie, it is what they do!”  I can just hear sighs and some saying, PROFOUND?  There is nothing profound about that, everybody knows that.  But I have to ask, “Do They?”  Based on what I have been witnessing in America, on the political scene, and even in some religious circles, I am not convinced EVERYBODY knows that!

Have you ever heard the saying, “God helps those who help themselves”?  That is an axiom that a very large segment of believers accept as being true and biblical.  But is it?  There are multitudes of people including non-believers who believe that statement is true and ascribe to the theory, “You have to look out for number one because nobody else will.”  I had a person tell me that the idea of God helping those who help themselves was part of Jesus’ sermon on the mount.  I asked for specifics and was railed against and called names no Christian should be calling anyone.

I believe that God expects each person to carry their own load (Galatians 6:5).  Clarke’s Commentary makes this assertion: “Every man shall bear his own burden – All must answer for themselves, not for their neighbors. And every man must expect to be dealt with by the Divine Judge, as his character and conduct have been. The greater offenses of another will not excuse thy smaller crimes. Every man must give account of himself to God.”

We sometimes take more on ourselves and give ourselves more credit than the Bible allows.  In Proverbs 21:2 we are informed, “Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the heart.”  There is an old Yiddish adage that says, “Mann Tracht, Un Gott Lacht.”  That is translated, “Man Plans, and God Laughs.”   In James 4 we are instructed that rather than declaring the finality of our plans we should say, “If the LORD wills, we shall live and also do this or that.”

America and much of the church are in a time of deep struggle and transition.  America is divided more than I have ever witnessed in my 74 years on the planet.  The church is segregated into sectarian divisions dangerously.  I believe the demons in hell are laughing at our divisions and distractions.  We are focused on self and God wants us focused on His Kingdom.  We are promised that if we Seek Him First and His Righteousness, we will have the provisions we need.  It may not be what we want or satisfy our carnal desires, but we will have our needs met.

It seems that few politicians are capable of honesty and engage in distortions and playing loose with the truth.  It seems that those lies are so successful in their impact and influence that even Christians are justifying their decisions based on personalities rather than principles and factual realities.  I find the idea of ultimate self-sufficiency and self-righteousness repulsive and anathema to the Christianity taught in the Bible and the Gospel Jesus brought and the disciples preached.

The words of Jesus in John 8:44 are important for all believers to hear and important for all lovers of freedom.  The devil is a liar!  He was a murder from the beginning.  There is no truth in him.  Whenever he speaks it is rooted in a lie because that is his nature, his DNA.  He is a liar and the father of lies.  Therefore, if you practice, spread, or believe a lie you are joining forces with the devil.  No Christian should be willing to do that and if it becomes apparent, they have, they should immediately repent.

The devil’s objective is to bring about spiritual and moral blindness in people.  He wants us to believe that we should rely on our own judgment, education, and intelligence. He wants us to believe that we can trust our own reasoning and rationalize life including politics.  When we believe that lie, we tend to adopt and develop our own systems of righteousness and behavior.  That system is usually deficient if not devoid of the righteousness of God.  There is no justification for many of the things we allow in our world today and call them ‘choice’ or ‘rights’

We pray, but too often we do not submit to the will of God.  We sometimes, and too many times, seek our own desires.  We were warned about that in James 4 concerning prayers that are not answered because we ask out of selfish and carnal motives rather than the pursuit of God and His righteousness.  The passage in Proverbs 3 that was the catalyst that propelled me into the presence of God and opened the door for me to be saved needs to be rehearsed.  We are to trust God with our whole hearts.  We are not to trust our own understanding.  We are to acknowledge Him in all that we do.  When we do, He will, as He promised, direct our paths.

Today, many, including believers are looking to the government for answers.  That is a wrong path that will lead to a wrong destination.  God has given us the ability to make choices.  We are free to accept His offer of salvation or reject it.  We can embrace the Love of God and thereby allow that love to ooze from our being and demonstrate love for others when hate would be so easy.  We can trust our own understanding or trust Him completely.  Today, many are confused and unsure who or what to believe.  Trusting what we see or the propaganda from any side will weaken our faith and our resolve. 

I believe the Bible when it says, “If a man is unwilling to work, he should not be given a free ride.” [My paraphrase].  I believe that we are to sow in times of planting and reap in times of harvest.  I believe that we are to pray, but not pray our desires but His heart.  I believe that if America is to survive as the Free Constitutional Republic, those who are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ must get back to the Bible and Basics. 

If the Bible calls something evil, sin, an abomination we dare not seek to justify it based on our own personal desires or out of fear of branding by the PC Police.  If the Bible tells us to love everyone, we cannot allow hate to invade.  If the Bible tells us to warn when we see danger coming, we dare not sit on the fence or sit in silence.  If the Bible tells us that we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, we dare not resort to fear and the arm of flesh.  We are fighting a won war!  That does not mean that every battle we encounter is won but the War was won at Calvary. 

Politicians are not to be trusted.  Man is not to be our source.  The Governments of men are not the answer, God is!  Therefore, we must become those who discern not only the times but the spirits and make the commitment to ‘come out from among them and be separate or different.’  We are salt and light and as salt and light, we are to influence our society and the environment in which we live not the converse. 

Jesus said, that when the Holy Spirit came, He would lead us into all truth.  He said that we would know, believe, receives, and act upon truth and that truth would make us free.  America, Believers, and all lovers of Freedom we are Free, and we can see restoration but not if we justify evil and out of personal animus or preference make choices that give power to evil.  I conclude with Jeremiah 17:5-10, “Thus says the LORD, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. 6 “For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when prosperity comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A land of salt without inhabitant. 7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD. 8 “For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit. 9 “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?  10 “I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.” 

God bless you and God bless America!

IS BENOVELENT SPENDING (Entitlements) CONSTITUTIONAL?


My title question will probably light the fires of those who believe it is the responsibility of the government to provide for the poor and needy.  I want to approach this from a couple of directions and hopefully present my position in such a manner as to cause people to think.  I believe if people are inspired to ‘think’ they will also be inspired to ‘act’ and when that transpires things change and get done.  Ideas alone offer no solution.  It is only when ideas are translated into action and implementation that progress is made.  God gave us the ability to think and expect us to use that gift for the good of the Kingdom and the world.

I have frequently questioned how much the American people know about the provisions of the Constitution and how much they embrace that document. I wish I could say that the majority both understand, appreciate, and embrace the Constitution and its provisions, protections, prohibitions, and guarantees.  I wish I could, but after four decades of brainwashing in our public educational system, I do not believe that is a reality.

The issue of caring for the poor, widows, orphans, and needy always arises in any political discussion.  Both political parties, in today’s America, contend that they are the party that cares about the needs of the needy.  Sadly, both sides of the political aisle frequently miss the mark biblically and constitutionally.  The usage of benevolent funding and entitlements for political purposes is not only distasteful for a Constitutionalist but is also dangerous to the continuation of the republic as the Free Constitutional Republic established by the signing of the Constitution by 39 American statesmen.

When I refer to the Bible, the history of the nation of Israel, as well as the birth of the Church in the New Testament I discover there are some important realizations to be acknowledged.  In the Book of Numbers Chapter Thirteen, we find the joyous declaration by the twelve spies who surveyed the Land of Canaan that it was truly what God had said, “a land flowing with milk and honey” or abundance.  They brought back clusters of grapes that required two men to carry.  That is a picture of incredible abundance and fruitfulness.

With that kind of fruitfulness, one would wonder, how could there be anyone poor in that land?  Moses was always forward-looking as he led the nation and discovered the heart, mind, and ways of God, not just His acts.  He said in Numbers 15:11, “For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you saying, ‘You shall freely open  your hand to your brother, to the needy and poor in your land.”  I love that spirit and heart for it reveals the heart of God. 

If we fast forward fifteen hundred years, we find the apostle Paul in the Book of Galatians admonishing the Church to “remember the poor.” (2:10).  I do not believe there has ever been a time nor will there ever be a time when God is not concerned about the poor.  There are numerous passages in the Bible about giving to the poor is viewed by God as lending to Him.

Biblically and Constitutionally, I believe that caring for the poor is primarily an individual responsibility, not a governmental one.  The Israelites were instructed to look around, take note of the poor and needy, and help care for them.  (Leviticus 25:25,35, 39).  They were not told to perpetually take care of those in need but to help them get back on their feet and become productive.  They were instructed to never turn a blind eye to need and allow a lack of charity to grip their hearts.  Their generosity would receive God’s attention and He would bless them so they could continue to bless others.  (Deuteronomy 15:7-8,10-11).  Jesus echoed that view in Matthew 25:34-40 and it is a message woven into the fabric of Christianity.

There can be, and often are, times when individuals are not capable of meeting the need alone and it transitions into a congregational or community responsibility.  I won’t attempt to list all the directives in the New Testament regarding the Church’s responsibility and privilege of caring for the poor.  I suggest you consider passages such as Acts 4:34-35, Galatians 2:10, Romans 15:26-27, and a myriad of others.

Is it the responsibility of the government to provide benevolence to the poor?  Are entitlements biblical or constitutional?  I believe that it is mandatory that the civil authorities follow the guidelines of scripture and the constitution.  Every person, rich or poor must be afforded equal justice under the law. 

The American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP) in an effort to help donors maximize the effect of their charitable giving rated various charities calculating the percentage of donated funds that actually reached the targeted person or persons.  They determined that the minimum acceptability ratio was 60 percent.  That brings up an interesting analysis of the government’s collection of funds designated for the poor and needy.  What percentage of the U.S. Government’s collections actually reach the poor?  Are you ready?  It is a paltry 30 percent!  That would make the federal government either the most inefficient charity or benevolent institution or incredibly corrupt.

Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and a host of other founders believed that it was the responsibility of the individual, churches, and local communities to care for the poor and needy not the federal government.  Jefferson said, “I deem it the duty of every man to devote a certain portion of his income for charitable purposes, and that it is his further duty to see it so applied as to do the most good of which it is capable.  This I believe to be best ensured by keeping within the circle of his own inquiry and information the subjects of distress whose relief his contributions shall be applied.”  That is powerful. We are to give but not just give and forget but to evaluate the success of the distribution of the funds.  Hello, Bill & Hillary, and your Haiti funds that you reportedly kept the lion’s share of.

I would be remiss if I failed to consider the views of the man accredited with being the Father of the American Constitution, James Madison.  In 1794 Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief for French refugees who fled from insurrection in San Domingo (now Haiti) to Baltimore and Philadelphia.  He said, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”  Will somebody remind today’s politicians of that truth?  Today Congress spends at least two-thirds of the $2.5 Trillion federal budget on “objects of benevolence.”

Later there was a move to provide a relief measure for fire victims in the United States.  Madison again contended that it was neither the purpose or the right of Congress to “attend to what generosity and humanity require, but to what the Constitution and their duty require.”  We have allowed the federal government to assume the role that both the Bible and the Constitution place on individuals, churches, and communities.  In so doing, we have become subservient to the government and abdicated our duties and voided the blessings of God on us.  God desires to bless people and one of the avenues of that blessing is through caring for the poor, needy, widows, and orphans. 

The ‘general welfare’ clause does not justify the actions of Congress in their unstainable benevolent spending.  James Madison rightly said, “If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.”  Jefferson echoed that sentiment in a letter to Pennsylvania Representative Albert Gallatin saying, “Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.”

Therefore, due to Constitutional ignorance, misinterpretation, or greed, we have allowed politicians to demonstrate incredible contempt for the Constitution and our personal and community responsibilities.  The Government is not our provider, God is! We are responsible for our own betterment.  It is through the charitableness of individuals, families, communities, and churches that we can all progress and prosper.  Allowing the Government to dictate and determine how much and to whom our money goes is to abandon both the directives of Scripture and the Constitution.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE OLIGARCHY OF THE OLIGARCHS…


Millions of citizens are fed up with the tyranny of politicians. In the uber-liberal state of California, there is a recall effort to oust Governor Newsom from office.  The response to that by the Left was voiced in a press conference on January 12, 2021, by Rusty Hicks the Democratic Party Chair.  Hicks declared, “This recall effort, which really ought to be called ‘the California coup,’ is being led by right-wing conspiracy theorists, white nationalists, anti-vaxxers, and groups who encourage violence on our democratic institutions.”

Mr. Hicks sentiments were echoed by Fresno city councilman Nelson Esparza who called the recall ‘treasonous.’  That elicited a response from Ben Christopher of CalMatters.  He declared, “Unlike a coup, which is an illegal seizure of power, a recall campaign is a democratic mechanism written into the California constitution that allows voters to remove an elected official by popular vote.”  Alas, the Democrats deem anything that objects to their position treasonous, insurrection, and a coup.  However when they oppose the other side it is in “defense of our democracy.”  Imagine that!

One of the things I find interesting but disturbing to the Oligarchs is that Donald Trump was elected in 2016 without their approval and over the objections of the woke oligarchy.  The coup, and I call it a coup, the Democrats engaged in for almost five years now began before the 2017 inauguration.  It was on full display in 2020 and is a menacing cloud for future elections.

The incredible thing is that the party that cheated, and I do believe they cheated, is the party in charge of investigating cheating.  That’s how oligarchies work and how oligarchs retain their power and sit on their lofty perches.  When the fox guards the henhouse, any protest by the hens becomes moot and deemed as being the chants of sore losers.  If the oligarchs lose, they claim it was the result of fraud, deception, or foreign interference that transpired. 

The political machine of the Democratic Establishment was on full display in the 2016 primaries and again in 2020.  There is little doubt that the rightful winner of the Democratic nomination in 2016 was Bernie Sanders.  The Oligarchs deemed him unacceptable and Hillary was their heir apparent to take the scepter from Barack Obama, so they cheated Bernie out of the nomination.  Joe Biden was down and out in 2020 until the Oligarchs stepped in and muscled him into the nomination.  The insertion of Kamala Harris was a Barack Obama machine action further revealing that Joe Biden is their figurehead not the leader of that party or leader of the oligarchy.

I do not excuse members of the GOP from the oligarchy.  Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, who has at times been stellar and at others revealing of oligarchy ties is one we must mention.  In the investigation and revelations of how the DOJ and FBI were involved in the coup against Donald Trump, he deemed it simply ‘massive system failure’ not treason or criminal.  I disagree and he knows better, but the Oligarchy has its tentacles in both parties. 

The trumped-up, impeachment of Donald Trump, the former president, is another example of the power of the Deep State, Swamp, and the political Oligarchy in America.  The impeachment of a president who is no longer in office serves many purposes and none of them good for America, our electoral system, or the constitution.   But when did the Oligarchs care about the Constitution?  They care about power and control and are determined to obliterate any opposition and instill fear in the hearts of any future challenges to their power.

They spent four years trying to oust Donald Trump and failed miserably.  The shame and hypocrisy were visible to anyone willing to take an honest look at the proceedings, charges, and fake evidence.  In the middle of a pandemic where the country is enduring an extended lockdown, the economy in shambles, they seek to drive the nail in the Trump coffin, and I believe it will backfire.  However, after the 2020 elections, I am not as confident of that as I once was.

Joe Biden has called for ‘unity’ and then signed seventeen executive orders obliterating that as a genuine position.  The ruling members of his party have made statements and taken actions that reveal ‘unity’ is not the objective but ‘compliance’ and ‘control’.  Someone said that Nancy Pelosi presides over a circus of untrained animals and diabolical clowns.  That is a bit harsh or is it?  Well, it might be a bit unkind to clowns and animals, but it is a visual that I can appreciate.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made many insane declarations and yet she remains the darling of those wanting everything green and free.  She is the queen of the socialistic wannabes of the Left.  She made the inane declaration that Trump must be impeached because “A lot of people have drank the poison of white supremacy and that’s what Donald Trump represents.”  Seriously, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez?  His track record is one of benefit and understanding for minorities as well as whites.  He helped engineer an economy that boosted everyone’s bottom line.  ALL Americans not some!

I do not condone the incident of January 6th nor do I condone what transpired during the summer with the rioting, looting, theft, and mayhem and harm brought to citizens.  However, I listened to the President’s speech and read the transcript and he implored his followers in Washington to protest as patriots and peacefully.  I know that many on both sides believe that the incident was completely his fault and therefore he encouraged insurrection. 

Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, always a zealot against conservatives and often quite racists was honest in his reason for impeaching Trump.  He said, “This president must be impeached and convicted, and he must be prevented from ever attempting to seize power again.”  Therein is the bottom line of their reason.  He was and is a threat to the Oligarchy and the Oligarchs therefore he must be destroyed and banned for life from public office.  They are still trying to overturn the 2016 election and render all the good done in the past four years a mere apparition. Even with Biden in the White House one of their objectives is to destroy Trump and all conservatives. I wonder why? 

America, the Democratic Party is the party of the oligarchy and run by Oligarchs.  If we want to salvage America as the Free Constitutional Republic we must pray like never before, work tirelessly to defeat them in every election, and find a way to unite around the cause of Freedom.  Will we do it?  That is the question of questions for America going forward.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE LEFTISTS AMERICAN MILITARY…


I am a Vietnam veteran, a proud former member of the United States Armed forces, and patriotic to the core of my being.  I have always defended our military and will continue to defend the men and women serving in the rank and file of the various branches of service.  However, I have contended for a long time, that beginning with William Jefferson Clinton and the disdain Queen Hillary had for the military, our military brass is not reliable. 

George W. Bush attempted to reconstruct the military and make it not just viable but a dominant force in the world, as is needed.  Barack Hussein Obama came in and for 8 years shredded and deconstructed our military, purging top and mid-level brass to become a more liberal and woke force.  Donald John Trump stepped in and over his 4 years in office he took great pride and strides in remaking our military.  Now, the Obama and Clinton policies on steroids are being put in motion.

Sadly, each time a Republican or conservative President attempts to retool our military and bring it up to par, a Democrat comes behind him and dismantles all the good done.  We never fully recoup all the damage done by the Leftists and in 2021 going with the new Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, a man on a mission to fulfill the desires of the Leftists and make our military an extension of their totalitarian desires.  We are headed for a disaster of epic proportions.

It seems that Secretary Austin and the Biden team have no desire for our military being the most lethal force in the world, able to deploy at a moment’s notice in defense of America.  I am deeply concerned about the attitude of some Flag Officers and the announced agenda of Secretary Austin. 

The claim of ‘extremism’ in the military and the charge of ‘white supremacy’ is troubling.  The steps taken to enact a military-wide pause are dangerous.  Secretary Austin’s announcement that he will or is ordering the military to ‘stand-down’ as he and the top-level brass investigate and deal with the threat posed by white supremacy and similar extremism.  Mr. Secretary, are only whites the issue, or is there potential extremism in others too? 

The ‘stand-down’ is troubling.  Normally a ‘stand-down’ is a pause in all but absolutely essential operations for 24 hours or so to deal with a particularly critical concern of immediate importance.  It is usually safety issues, but those orders have involved other things as well.  But, to ‘stand-down’ because you deem members of the military who supported Donald Trump dangerous, extremists, and in need of being purged is beyond the pale.  It screams of a desire to create a “Woke” military that is completely committed to the ideology of liberalism and the socialist progressive agenda.

The assertion of extremism is unsubstantiated and is a slap in the face of every member of our armed forces and all who have served.  We served and serve under oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States.  In that respect, we took an oath that, to the death and would protect the republic from all enemies both foreign and domestic.  That would mean that we might hold political views but in the performance of our duties, we were apolitical and totally committed to our mission.  The charge is that there is a significant number who need to be purged because they do not think or believe like the ‘Woke’ crowd and the new Secretary of Defense is insulting.

If you examine history, something the Left seems averse to doing, you quickly realize that in September 1934, Adolf Hitler was scheduled to inspect a jaeger regiment commanded by Colonel Erwin Rommel.  The Nazi security insisted that the politically reliable SS troops be positioned between Hitler and Rommel’s regiment.  Rommel, to his credit, said that if that happened his troops would not be there.  That should be the response of our American military leaders when Biden and company want to restructure our military with party loyalists for his security rather than their designed purpose of defending America.

The desire to purge all Trump supporters from the military is step one to a totalitarian takeover.  When I consider the ‘stand-down’ planned, I insist that it is based on fallacious accusations and non-existent issues.  There is no investigation into the potential infiltration of our military by ANTIFA, BLM, and proponents of the Critical Race Theory is also insulting. Those have some documentation and having domestic terrorists serving in the U.S. military is cause for concern. 

Are we watching a Stalinist, Hitleresque purge of the military?  I am concerned as I examine the documentation of the rapid and aggressive promotions of senior military brass who ascribe to a history devoid of facts, and those determined to undermine the ethics and morale of our armed forces.  The placement of true insurrectionists in the upper levels of our military should cause all of us to take a closer look.

Having served in Vietnam in 1967 and returning to the states landing in San Francisco in December of that year, I know what it is like to be unwelcome and treated as the enemy for serving my country.  I did not experience that when I returned home to Texas but witnessed it first-hand in California especially from students of Berkeley University.  The chants, the slogans, signs, and throwing feces and other projectiles at wounded returning patriots were disconcerting and infuriating. 

Are we seeing an inside-out attempt to make our military a Gestapo-type arm of the Democratic Party and the followers of toxic liberalism?  When former military and CIA officers are insisting that anyone who supports Trump are insurgents and must be dealt with using counterinsurgency tactics and brute force I am concerned.  I do not support insurrection from anyone regardless of their political ideology.  Yet, to treat those in Washington in January as insurgents and disregard the activities and stated objectives of the rioters, looters, and destroyers by ANTIFA, BLM, and other Left-Wing Activists as ‘mostly peaceful protests’ is revealing.

In today’s climate of Political Correctness, I can understand why many would no longer be willing to serve in law enforcement or the military.  If you defend the Constitution as it is written and commit yourself to defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law without prejudice, you are deemed an extremist, who needs that?  However, I plead for all who can and will serve to consider doing so.  We need, no we must have, those who will stand for Right, Life, Liberty, and Freedom to stand.

God bless you and God bless America!

CONFISCATION OF PRIVATELY OWNED FIREARMS…


Before you vehemently insist that it can and will never happen, I ask, “How much of what has happened would you have believed could happen just a few years ago?”  Once you have allowed that reality to ruminate in your heart and mind you will see that what they plan might not be as far-fetched a possibility as most of us believe. 

If you do not believe that the Democrats want your weapons you are not living in the present.  THEY DO!  They have openly and covertly declared the same.  With those on the Left like Robert Frances ‘Beto’ O’Rourke when asked, “Are you proposing taking away their guns?”  He responded, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s and Ak-47s.”   What part of that do you not understand?

Robert Frances O’Rourke is not alone in his desire to confiscate and ban our privately owned firearms.  He is joined by a cadre of Leftists including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  I remind you of a proposal that Joe Biden has floated that he would require everyone who owns an AR-15 to register that weapon per the mandates of the National Firearms Act of 1934.  In case you missed it, that would amount to a surcharge of $200 per AR-15 in your arsenal. What would be next? 

According to the National Rifle Association’s estimate, there are at least 18 million AR-15s owned by Americans.  I am convinced that is a low estimate but taking those numbers you quickly realize that this would amount to a new tax of $3.6 billion.  If you are naïve enough to believe they would stop with the AR-15s you are walking with Alice in Wonderland.

Biden declared, before the election that if he was elected, he would enact legislation to once again ban “assault” weapons.  That is a skewed definition and description of those scary looking firearms.  There are those on the Left who truly believe that banning and confiscating all privately owned firearms would be the magic pill to cure the ills of crime and violence in America.  They are devoid of reason and unable to consider facts.  They, like Diane Feinstein and other Democrats, believe that if the lawful citizens did not have weapons the criminals would lay theirs down too.  WHAT ARE THEY SMOKING OR DRINKING?

Biden has threatened to use the executive fiat to achieve his objective, if Congress does not act to rubber-stamp his proposal.  Those of you who accused Trump of being an autocrat put that in your pipe and smoke it.  It smacks of authoritarianism beyond belief and totally outside the constraints of the Constitution.  But, then when, in recent memory, did the Constitution constrain the Leftists?

Biden has promised or threatened to re-enact the requirement that the Social Security Administration and the V.A. report to the federal background check anyone who has sought treatment for any mental or emotional issue including PTSD or Depression.  Biden’s own website has revealed there is no firearm he is unwilling to target for confiscation.  The Second Amendment is a threat to tyrants, and this would amount to tyranny that cannot be allowed to stand.  He has vowed to use the full weight and force of federal agencies to achieve his agenda and objective. 

The student of history knows the role that ‘gun control’ has played in the rise and dominion of Dictators and Dictatorships.  The Left continues to elicit support for a virtual ‘police state’ in which the politically compliant and complicit would be safe but anyone else would be brutally punished.  The agenda of the Leftists is designed to overthrow our American Society and replace it with a kind of Socialism that leads to Tyranny of epic proportions.

Overthrowing society is dirty work and they have made it clear the only way peace with them can be hoped for is by our compliance with their demands.  If we fail to comply, they will burn our cities, strip us of our rights, incarcerate many who resist, and destroy lives, businesses, and churches in the process.  That will push us to conflict and the Second Amendment will become the major target of the Tyrannical Leftists in power. 

They know they cannot succeed in their agenda as long as American citizens have the right and ability to defend themselves.  Their success depends upon stripping us of that ability and right.  They must end all normal, non-communist views and rid society of constitutionalists and conservatives.  They are also targeting Christians who believe in the Bible and stand for its morals, precepts, and principles.  

The Founding Fathers insisted that the Second Amendment must be kept sacred. It was not designed to enable us to hunt game into perpetuity but because those men understood the dangers of a rogue and tyrannical government.  They realized that if unethical authoritarians and immoral godless politicians gained control everyone would be endangered.  Therefore, they sought to provide a defense mechanism that would keep us safe and cause the government to have second thoughts about a total takeover of our lives and society.  The Left hates that view and is hell-bent to destroy it.

Defunding the police is part of the package.  The weakening of the military and purging the ranks of those who value the Constitution and our Freedoms.  An amazing statistic provided by the FBI in a report entitled “2018: Crime in the United States” broke down murder by the types of weapons used.  Guess what was not at the top, not even close?  That’s right, rifles, AR-15’s or AK-47s.  Do you know what it was?  It was knives!  The FBI reported that there were 1,515 murders with “knives or cutting instruments” and 297 with “rifles.”

Handguns are the major weapon used in firearms deaths, not the so-called ‘assault rifles’ that the Left wants to ban.  Why?  Because the long gun would be more useful in a war than a pistol.  At the beginning of America’s struggle for Freedom, one of the catalysts was the British attempt to ‘confiscate’ firearms.  The Left wants to follow the path of King George III and strip us of our ability to defend ourselves.  The so-called ‘military-style’ weapons are the term they use but it is a façade to hide their real intent.  That is absolute tyrannical rule over us!

One more tidbit.  November 9th was the 81st anniversary of the first day of Kristallnacht, also known as the “night of broken glass.”  For nearly a week the Nazi Sturmabteilung paramilitary forces had carried out a pogrom against Jewish-owned businesses, synagogues, and properties across Germany and related territories.  In that blitz, 267 synagogues and 7,000 businesses were damaged or destroyed and 30,000 Jewish men were incarcerated in concentration camps. 

Hitler insisted that ‘gun confiscation’ was necessary because of the assignation of Nazi diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, a 17-year old German-born Polish Jew living in Paris.  Never let a good crisis go to waste and if you cannot find one manufacture it and fan the flames of paranoia.  I insist that the modern Democratic Party channels the Nazis in the quest to ‘ban guns.’  Sadly, too many Republicans are boarding that destructive train. 

America if we give up our right to “keep and bear arms” we give up our Freedom!  I pray that the millions of people in America who value that right and freedom will ban together and prevent this from becoming a bloody eventuality. 

God bless you and God bless America!

THE PATH OF TYRANNY – Censorship…


World history is replete with examples of Tyranny being achieved on the heels of massive government and media censorship of all opposing views.  The insincere calls by Joe Biden and the Democrats for ‘unity’ are exposed by their actions.  Actions always speak much louder than words.  The proof is in the pudding and what they seem to mean by ‘unity’ is ‘compliance.’ 

The War on Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Thought, and Freedom of Religion is escalating and where it ends is unlikely to be good for America or the American people.  What is it about the truth that the Left fear so much that they are willing to use any means to silence all opposing voices?  If what they are advancing is truth and right, then they have nothing to fear by openly and with civility engaging in debate with dissenting voices. 

I have discovered in my decades on this planet that the followers of toxic liberalism and what could be called Luciferin zealots claiming to be learned and checkers of facts causes them to demand censorship and a redefining of truth and history.  An honest heart does not fear the truth but welcomes it for they know that it is liberating.  I believe that it is only those devoid of truth who feel compelled to censor anything that engages in independent thought.  Rational thought is a threat to those following the toxic brand of liberal ideology of today.  The followers of Democratic Socialism dare not allow people to rationalize and think for if they do, the ideology of the Left would be rejected.

Let me get in trouble at the outset of this presentation and use homosexuality as an example.  If that lifestyle choice were a normal sexual practice, there would be no need to instantly and viciously attack anyone who questions that practice as normal or natural.  I believe, you may not, that according to the Bible homosexuality is a sexual sin that requires repentance and rejection to be acceptable to God.  God calls it an abomination.  If you believe it is normal and natural, the fact that I disagree is not a justification to viciously assault me and call for me to be censored, incarcerated, and charged with a hate crime.  Simply debate the situation using factual, scientific, and moral proofs for your position.

Abortion is, in my view, murder.  It can only be called genocide or infanticide.  When I present my arguments for life I am attacked viciously and called everything but a human being.  In my lifetime I have observed the industrialized systematic attempts to exterminate entire generations via abortion.  When I question the duplicity of people literally begging for funds to save abused animals (a good thing) but openly applauding the slaughter of innocent unborn babies, I am attacked viciously. 

Hillary Clinton sought to silence the women bringing accusations against her husband but demanded that women accusing conservatives must be given a voice and believed.  If Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton are truly strong independent women and role models for women everywhere what should we do with their history?  Why was it necessary for Harris to sleep with a long list of married men to climb the political ladder?  Why would Hillary endure a lifetime of public humiliation for the sake of political expediency?

The truth is a sort of kryptonite to the lies and the liars who spread them.  Therefore, it is mandatory that anyone exposing the fraud, criminality, corruption, and hypocrisy of the liberal socialist globalist ideology and agenda be censored and silenced.  The truth is not to be feared but should be welcomed.  The Bible informs us that, ‘the truth will make us free.’  Fear has torment whereas truth emboldens and liberates.  Truth frees the soul, the heart, and mind from the encumbrances of distortion.  Truth, though sometimes painful is therapeutic and brings healing, peace, and freedom.

Our entire world is living in the paralysis of fear.  We are told by the medical experts that it is mandatory that we wear masks, get vaccines, and practice social distancing to protect ourselves from the virus no sweeping the globe.  Those medical experts who disagree are censored and silenced.  Twitter, Facebook, and other social media outlets have an objective to silence anything that does not follow the Leftist rhetoric.  When they can shut down a sitting president with impunity, what can they do to the rest of us? America was founded on the belief and vision that ‘all people are created equal.’  Our Declaration of Independence proudly announced that we have the God-given right to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

The double standard and hypocrisy of the Left and the Tyrannical will never be seen more clearly than in the comparative responses to what happened on January 6, 2021, at the Capitol and the riots, demonstrations, and protests that have been rampant in America.  Those at the Capitol were called insurrectionists and deemed as domestic terrorists committing and act more treacherously than anything in our history.  Those burning looting and causing mayhem even taking over a section of a city and a police station ‘peaceful protestors.’  That is duplicitous and diabolical. I am not defending the events of January 6th nor the events of the previous year or four years by the rioters.

The wizardly wise Congressman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed, “we came close to nearly half the House dying.”  She made no condemnation of the BLM/Antifa insurrection against federal buildings in Portland, or the call for ‘no USA at all.’  Yet, she deems those at the Capitol white supremacists determined to annihilate all on the Left or of a different ethnicity than they.

She and others have called for the expulsion of Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz for raising objections to the electoral count.  What they did is no different than the Democrats in 2017 and at other times in our history.  It is an allowable provision for Congress but when it is done in opposition or objection to the Tyrannical Liberal Leftists ideology and agenda it is treacherous, treasonous, and demanding of immediate censorship.

The Left, during the Trump presidency, called for people to ‘push back’ against Trump officials if they were met on the streets.  They called for the ‘harassment’ of Trump supporters in restaurants.  There are calls to strip children from parents to deprogram them and indoctrinate them with the Leftist ideological views to save them from conservatism and support for Trump.  Celebrities doing vile things, calling for the rape, sodomization, and murder of Trump family members were not censored.  If anyone who supported the president called them out, those supporters were immediate targets for censorship. 

What we are witnessing is the rise of Totalitarianism and Authoritarianism which is despotic tyranny.  If we do not ensure that our Bill of Rights remains intact and the Constitution restored to its rightful position as the governing guide, we will see Tyranny take control and those who disagree will not only be censored but exterminated.

God bless you and God bless America!

LIFE, LIBERTY, and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS…


Our Founding Fathers were adamant that all people, all Americans, had certain inalienable and unalterable rights that came directly from our Creator, not the government.  In our Declaration of Independence, this was specified.  The words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident…” leave no question as to their recognition of certain rights and their unwillingness to accept less.  Why should we be any different today in America?

Those incredibly wise and detailed men continued saying, “…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.”  It is astounding to me that some in politics today believe that government has the right to trample, suspend, or modify those rights.  THEY DO NOT! 

The government has no right to tell any American citizen what they can think or even what they can say.  The only caveat is that if what we are saying is inciting riots and inducing sedition thereby endangering our Republic and our people the government can and should intervene.  Intervention is a difficult assertion because it can only mean keeping the public safe not developing a politically correct thought and speech police force.  If anyone becomes a threat to others, they are impeding that person’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

The government that our Founders established was intended to always be recognized as ‘by the consent of the governed’ not ‘vice versa’.  The government exists and operates, with the consent of the governed.  We are the ones charged with the oversight of the government, not the government charged with the oversight of us.  That is what the federal government has morphed into and poses a serious threat against our liberty and our designed system of government.

Politicians, of all stripes, seem to have developed or adopted the idea that they are our overseers and in the words of some, “the guardians of our democracy.”  The fallacy in that view is, in part, so few seem to understand that we are not a ‘direct democracy’ but a ‘republic’ with a representative government.  A second, fallacy in that line of thought is that the elected politicians seem to think that they are our lords and ladies.  They are not!  They are elected to represent us not rule us.

One of the roots of the development of this type of thinking is found in our modern educational system where Civics, Government, and History are taught incorrectly and inadequately if at all.  I have discussed our system of government with people holding Ph.D.’s in history. Some of them teach in our universities and do not understand our system of government.  Let me rephrase that and say, they may understand, but disagree with it and believe it antiquated.  Their disagreement leads them to become members of the Cancel Culture and Revisionist seeking to sanitize history to their liking.

Historic sanitization only results in the lesser informed being bereft of the benefit of the awareness and lessons in the failures and successes of our forefathers.  America like every other nation has made mistakes and has skeletons in our closet.  History should be taught as it is, not sanitized reinvented, or rewritten to fit a political or ideological narrative.  It is what it is and what it is should be our schoolmaster to help us avoid the mistakes and build upon the successes.

Our Founding Fathers offered the vision of a republic where all people were recognized as being created in the image of God and endowed with inalienable rights.  Every person has the God-given right, a right to be protected by our Constitution, to enjoy Life, Liberty, and the freedom to pursue happiness without government infringement.  That speaks of limited government, not the all-powerful nanny state that is being advanced in today’s political circles. 

Somehow, we have adopted the erroneous view that there must be a complete separation of ‘church and state.’  That view expanded requires a complete separation of moral moorings and moral absolutes from the political.  The desire to silence those who teach and preach the Gospel and the precepts and principles of the Bible relegating them to the confines of the four walls of the church is misguided.  That is not what transpired during our formative years and should not now.  The 19th-century Russian philosopher Vladimir Soloviev, in his work Politics, Law, and Morality wrote: “A complete separation of morality and politics constitutes one of the prevalent errors and evils of our century.”  That is still true today in the 21st-century.  It is a universal truth that is timeless.

The American nation was based on the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.  I use that archaic English term coined by clergyman Richard Hooker in The Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity (1593).  Thomas Jefferson in his declaration, “in the Course of human Events, it [became] necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands [with an oppressive government] which have connected them [to each other] and assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle[d] them.”

Joseph Ellis explained in his book The Character of Thomas Jefferson, “Thomas Jefferson, linked American Independence to grand and great forces that transcended the immediate political crisis and swept the imagination upward toward a purer and more principled world.”  We need that today.  We need a return to our moral moorings and a recognition of God’s sovereignty and His bestowal of inalienable rights on mankind.

The right to Life is darkened and tainted in the pro-abortion view.  We claim that everyone has the Right to Life but when it comes to the unborn, their right to live is subordinated to the right of the mother to opt for ending that life.  The juridical parting point is how life is defined by pro-abortion advocates and justices.  The term life is semantically poor.  The Romans did little but Latinize various Greek terms for life. 

Bios: life, in as much as a being, is born and dies in its precariousness and morality. Zoe: eternal life, which has no beginning and no end.  It is a dimension of life that is different from bios, such as divine life.  Psyche: life in motion or movement and is more than bios because it brings things like character into the mix.  Soma: a dimension of life that is inseparable from bios, but which is not reducible to the soma; it can be translated as a body.  Words have meaning. Life is the ability to Live and pursue that which makes us complete in every dimension.  That is God-given Right!

Liberty is more than not being in chains it is the freedom to think, express, develop ideas, dreams, and plans for the pursuit of Life.  Liberty includes freedom from overt and covert governmental infringement upon our ability to live the life that God has granted us.  God gave us liberty and through His Truth, we are liberated.  It is through educational and historic ignorance that our chains are forged, and we are imprisoned by the tyrannical.  It is expressed in censorship and deprogramming of anyone not agreeing with the mandated ideological philosophy.  That strips citizens of the Freedom of Speech and Opinion.  It seeks to make us mindless followers rather than innovators and initiators.

It is stated possibly erroneously that Jefferson changed the third term of John Locke’s trinity “life, liberty, and property” with “the pursuit of happiness.”  That phrase may have been an importation, not an origination by Jefferson.  Our Founding Fathers believed that “pursuing happiness was the foundation of liberty.”  Our founders adamantly sought to protect private property from government infringement. 

Our Founders believed that God has given to every person the right, the undeniable and inalienable right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  Unless we return to those founding principles, we will watch our republic become a memory and our liberties become controlled and restricted by the government. I continue to trust God, not the Government.

God bless you and God bless America!

IS EVERY POLITICIAN ELECTED ARBITRARILY PUT THERE BY GOD?


I realize that I am about to embark on a journey that will possibly receive criticism and critique from those who normally agree with me and those who never do.  I may find that I have become anathema to both sides of the political aisle and find myself odious to some of my fellow believers.  That being said, I will try to say what I believe the Bible teaches and my view, formulate from that interpretation on the subject.

In Daniel 2:21, the passage that I have heard quoted often regarding political elections.  It says, “It is He (God) who changes the times and the periods; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”  I do believe that God is the Living God, the One True God, the Sovereign God of the universe!  I believe He puts people in political positions or allows them to ascend to whatever office they occupy! 

In the Book of Daniel, we have the record of Nebuchadnezzar, ruler over the Babylonian Empire 600 years before Christ.  This powerful ruler had a dream or a night vision and after seeking the interpretation from the soothsayers of his realm, Daniel gave him the true interpretation.  In Daniel 4:17, Daniel told the king that God gave the dream, “in order that the living may know the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.” 

Nebuchadnezzar was not a nice person.  He was a vicious tyrant who threw people alive into a furnace to be burned.  Imagine that, a dictator or tyrant having people burned alive.  Does that remind you of anyone in modern history?  He even threatened his advisors with mass murder if they didn’t give him the dream and the interpretation. 

We know from scripture that God hardened the heart of Pharaoh in Egypt until Egypt was brought to her knees because they persecuted the Hebrews.  In Exodus 9:16, God sent Moses to inform Pharaoh, “Indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”  In Daniel 2:20-21, we find Daniel declaring that God controls world events, removing and setting up kings.

The apostle Paul told the Christians in Rome, “All authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”  (Romans 13:1) I would be remiss if I did not ask, “Does that mean that God endorses evil leaders with all their flaws and sordid agendas?”  I would insist the answer is NO!  I believe that it means that God has a purpose for humanity, and with America in mind, a purpose for America.  I believe that Romans 8:28 is applicable and that God takes the choices of people and events of life to blend them together with the end in view.  He works all things together for His purposes and our good.  Each thing nor each leader is not good but God as He has done throughout the Bible and history uses them for His purposes.

There are times that God arbitrarily decides who is going to be the leader of any given nation.  I believe that more frequently, He allows people to decide who will lead the nation.  He allows us to make choices, not always good choices, and elect or select people to govern who do not follow the precepts and principles of God’s Word.  I am reminded of Psalms 106:15 referring to the people of God who had been delivered from Egyptian bondage.  In previous verses, we discover the people rebelled against God, forgetting His works, not depending upon Him for guidance, but pursued their own desires.  In verse 15 we read, “And He gave them their request, but sent leanness to their souls.”

Sometimes, in our bad choices or selfish desires, we select or elect bad people to govern us.  God said in Hosea 8:4, “They set up kings, but not by Me; They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them.”  I am not speaking people prophesying that a particular candidate would win the election.  If God said, “Candidate X is going to win, candidate X is going to win!”  The only caveat to that would be if God said, “Candidate X is my desire, and if My people will be obedient and pray, he/she will be elected.” 

I am speaking to the issue of whether we have any choice in who is elected and if God wants someone in the White House or any other office they will occupy that position. He could arbitrarily do that! He is God.  God can do anything He pleases and none of us could question that.  He owns it all, He created it all, and He is LORD over it all.  However, like in the Garden of Eden, He gives us choices and it is in those choices that events transpire.  The fact that something happens does not mean that is His will, it means that is the path we chose.  Sometimes we open the door to evil by making wrong choices or in disobedience.  If we obey, we eat the good of the land.

The apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 2:1-2 gave some incredibly wise and godly advice to all believers.  It is applicable for today’s America and those of us wonder what God could be thinking in allowing the destruction that is being pressed upon us as a consequence of the 2020 elections.  He said, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings, and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”  I shout Amen, Paul, Amen!

I believe it is necessary that believers everywhere pray for those who are charged with leading the government.  We are not to pray for them to succeed in their agendas if those agendas are converse with the principles of the Constitution or the Bible. 

I am going to tread on thin ice and say that the slaughter of over 61 million unborn babies, the trampling on moral principles, the gender nullification, the assault on the home and family, and the anathema shown toward God and the Bible makes it understandable if God judges this nation.  Peter declared in 1 Peter 4:17, “For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God, and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the Gospel of God?”

In biblical and world history we can see that God has used evil rulers to accomplish His plans and draw His people back to Him.  Habakkuk 1:5-11 is a prophecy in which God relates His intention to raise up Babylon, a ruthless and dreaded nation, to achieve His purposes.  I say that with Romans 8:28 echoing in my heart and encouraging my spirit.  We must never forget the truth of James 1:13 that “God cannot be tempted with evil, and He Himself tempts no one.”

I take comfort in the revelation given in Scripture of the Finished Work of Jesus and His total triumph over the forces of darkness.  People make bad choices and allow evil to prevail but that does not mean that God wanted the evil to transpire or the tyrants to rule.  I believe that He uses those situations to allow people to come to the end of themselves, repent, and realize their need for Him. 

No matter who is in the White House we must never allow fear to reign in our hearts.  We must continue to be rock solid in our belief and confidence that God is God and trustworthy.  I take great comfort in the account in 2 Chronicles 20:1-37 with Jehoshaphat and Israel.  It looked as if certain doom was their fate.  I love the king’s prayer in (vv.6-13).  He reminded God of His promise and the people of their responsibility.  Then a prophet stood and declared the Word of God.  We need to hear God clearly and correctly and then follow His word no matter how things look.  The miracle is incredible and the victory complete!

When we trust God there is no reason to fear!  I do not believe that it was God’s desire for Joe Biden to be president of the United States of America.  However, through many circumstances including bad choices or misguided choices, he now occupies the Oval Office.  What I do believe is that, as in many accounts in the Bible and history, what is meant for evil, God can and will turn for good.  God just may be allowing us to see the depth of corruption, the total abandonment of moral sanity and the Constitution, and when we reach the end of ourselves and turn to Him, He will move!

I believe the most important thing the believer can do today is “Seek God and His Kingdom.”  I believe that we must stand in the gap and make up the hedge.  We must pray and intercede for America.  We must not cast away our confidence in God and make it the purpose of our hearts to “Do His Will.”  We are to be salt and light and we are to influence the world rather than the world influencing us.  Stop listening to the voices that detract from God, His purposes, and promises.  Turn to God’s Word and to God in Prayer and allow your spirit to be refreshed.  We are commissioned to ‘pull down strongholds’, to do the works that Jesus did and greater works.  We are authorized and commissioned to destroy the works of the devil.  We do that with spiritual weapons and trust!

God bless you and God bless America!

TOTALITARIAN AMERICA…


Only a few years ago, I would have railed on anyone saying that America is or is about to become a Totalitarian state. That was only a few years ago. But in 2021, I confess I was wrong and under the current administration, the Democrat-controlled Congress, and the Swamp-filled Supreme Court we are there. You may disagree and insist that I am overreacting and to that I say — I Hope So! I pray that you are right and that I am having a classic knee-jerk reaction to the rapid and rabid assault on our liberties, freedoms, and the American constitution.

I heard something recently on the Tucker Carlson show that caused me great concern and at the same moment instilled a flicker of hope in my heart. What I heard came from the lips of a former Clinton adviser, Naomi Wolf. One of her many statements was that what is happening in the push to totalitarianism is beyond partisan and should unite those on the Left and Right to fight it. The operative word is ‘should’ not ‘would’. It should but from my perch, it seems that almost none on the Left and too few on the Right see, believe, or maybe even care.

I’m not sure that the condition of incredible apathy or non-involvement is due to not seeing or simply not caring. It seems to me that, for many, they have not been impacted sufficiently to be alarmed. The tragedy is that by the time that transpires it will be too late to fight back and the republic will have become a full-blown banana republic with the totalitarian dictators and oligarchs in control. The abdication of sanity by the Supreme Court over the election fraud cases makes it clear that the Deep State and Swamp are still in control.

I am more convinced than ever that our hope was another four-years of Donald J. Trump. You may find his personality as irritable as fingernails on a chalkboard. However, if you are capable of rising above the personality of the players and see the results, you should see the stark contrast in constitutionalism between Trump and Biden. Biden has shredded it daily and Trump fought for our liberties and freedoms. Biden is decimating our economy. The Trump administration produced an agenda that ignited it and benefitted everyone. Biden is erasing our borders and endangering our republic with his immigration policies and Trump made significant gains in protecting our borders and our national sovereignty. Biden is kowtowing to China, Russia, Iran, and others whereas Trump placed the world in a safer position by providing a strong America.

Ms. Wolf said, “America is becoming a totalitarian state before our eyes under President Biden’s leadership.” That came from a Democrat, not a Right-Winger. It came from a female, not the dastardly white male, well dastardly if that male was a conservative. Liberal Leftists white males are considered ‘woke’ sufficiently to be given a pass. Her view was that we are witnessing a ‘coup-like action that is creating a police state.’ This is the result of Biden’s ongoing coronavirus-related economic shutdowns and other actions.

Ms. Wolf declared what I and others have been contending for a long time, “This is beyond partisan. It transcends everything that those on the Right and Left might disagree or agree on.” It is a matter that should bring all freedom-loving Americans to the table of cooperation and ignite a fire of commitment to protect, defend, and preserve the Constitution and our Republican Form of Government. Again, the operative word is ‘should’.

The Left and the manipulated on the Right have decimated businesses, issued edicts that prevented Americans from freely assembling to worship as is guaranteed by the Constitution’s 1 st Amendment. The 4th Amendment is being trampled upon and the 2 nd Amendment is in the crosshairs of the Leftists and seekers of Totalitarian governance.

Ms. Wolf has published a book that outlines the ten steps that would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy and she expressed her belief and concern that America is headed toward ‘step 10.’ The use of executive orders or emergency orders stripping us of our rights is unconstitutional and dangerous. The rights of property, self-defense, speech, and assembly are constitutional mandates that if lost, destroy the pillars of freedom required for America to remain free.

The Editor in Chief of Breitbart, Alex Marlow has produced an investigative book that exposes the deep corruption within America’s media establishment. That is not a surprise, but his research and documentation is and should shake every lover of freedom and patriot to the core of their being. Mr. Marlow said, “I’ve been immersed in research on America’s media conglomerates for a year and I’ve kept the material tightly under wraps.” That was wise because otherwise, it would likely have brought about his demise. He said, “What I have found is shocking even to me, and I’ve tracked these players and issues my entire career. ”

His expose contains well over 1,000 endnotes. He said, “Media bias does not begin to describe what is in the book.” He spoke of the weaponization by the media giants and the unbridled use of fake news to benefit the Left, the globalists, and the multi-national corporations that control much of our lives. It extends from cronyism to the China ties, to the unending web of lies and half-truths that are prevalent and deeply embedded in today’s media. He said, “This is the truth about the 2020 election story the powers that be don’t want you to read.” That makes me want to buy the book and hope it is not much ado about nothing and more hype and foam than substance.

We are witnessing the utter fakeness of the imbecilic presentation of a liberal utopia. When politicians gain power through fraud, everything that follows is also fake. We were inundated with fake news and fallacious stories about Russian collusion in 2016. That was debunked and disproven so succulently that it should have resulted in indictments and convictions, but it continued for FOUR-YEARS!

We have been bombarded with the fallacious rhetoric presented by the Left that America is on the brink of a second civil war. The divide is great and growing greater. The hate is so prevalent that one wonders how long it will be safe to step outside your own home. The tech giants have become the censor arm of the Leftists and now there is a determined effort to censor and silence ALL conservative news outlets. If you are a Constitutionalist, a Conservative, and often a Christian holding to traditional biblical and family values you are deemed to be a spreader of hate speech and thereby censored.

The video where President Biden repeated what he was being told in his earpiece or whatever device he receives instructions was revealing. He said, “salute the Marines.His handlers tell us we misheard him and that he actually said, “good looking Marines.” NOPE, he said what he said, and it is one of the myriads of incidents where he is clearing parroting what he is being told.

Some said that the ceremonies of his signing Executive Orders look more like a hostage situation than a person in control and making their own decisions. He is, in my view, a puppet, but a very dangerous one. I hesitate to say this because I do not want to judge another person’s faith, but to call Joe Biden a ‘devout Christian’ seems a stretch. You know the tree by the fruit and the fruit of support for abortion on demand, and the other agendas and actions that are contrary to the written Word of God causes me to wonder. That being said, in the end, that is between Mr. Biden and God.

America, if we have not become a Totalitarian State, we are not far from it. The handwriting is on the wall and it is time for all True Patriots regardless of political party to unite to stop this and preserve the Republic. Can we count on you?

God bless you and God bless America!

WHERE IS AMERICA?


I asked that question and had a follower of toxic liberalism say, “It’s on the map between Asia and Europe.”  Wow!  If I were asking a geographical question rather than a rhetorical one that might be a valid conclusion.  However, my question, “Where is America?” is not about geographic location but governmentally, socially, morally, and judicially.  I am asking, where this nation is with respect to constitutional governance and judicial integrity.  So, “Where Is America?”

We were told by Obama and Biden that there was not ‘one whiff of a scandal in their administration.  We were told that, but everyone including those two players in the scheme of ‘fundamental transformation’ knows it was light-years from the truth.  The more things are revealed the more we see the corruption of leading figures in the Democratic Party.  The tentacles of corruption do not stop at the Party line but there are prominent Republicans whose hands are dirty too. 

I don’t like the blanket charge of something be systemic such as institutional racism or whatever the PC Police and Snowflake world claim to discredit Trump and/or Conservatives.  However, I believe there are signs of ‘systemic corruption’ in government.  It is not relegated to the elected officials, if it were, that would be a relatively easy fix.  It reaches into the vastness of the Swamp and Deep State and is embedded in every government bureaucracy.

We watched the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service become weaponized under Obama.  We watched the Intelligence Community and the Federal Bureau of Investigation become tools to target and attack those not following the ideology of toxic liberalism, globalism, socialism, and anti-Americanism.  If you were not a part of that team you were a prime target for attempted destruction. 

I have shouted from the rooftop for over two decades about the systematic implementation of schemes to make America something other than the Free Constitutional Republic we were given by the Founding Fathers.  I have cited the numerous incidents of indiscretion and playing free and loose with the rules, the constitution, and our national security by the Obama administration and his subordinates.  Some have charged that I have become a broken record.

Some claim I never cited any failures of Trump and the Republicans.  Those who know me know that is not the truth.  Unfortunately, perception often becomes a person’s reality and once they take a side, they refuse to acknowledge anything that discredits their position.  I am not always right. I know that is a surprise (tongue firmly planted in cheek). But, when I realize I have been wrong; I try to quickly rectify that position.  I repent where needed, recant my statements, and present the truth.  I do not care if a violator is on the Right or the Left, America is too valuable a prize to allow the corruption that now exists to continue.

I cite one more incredibly damning bit of factual information regarding the state of corruption in the Obama administration.  An administration that Joe Biden was an integral part of.  After years of investigation into Trump’s supposed violations of the law, the constitution, and complicity with foreign governments with nothing being produced the Left has ignored all the facts regarding their side.  The United States Senate has produced documented evidence of another improper action by former President Barack Obama.  His administration knowingly funded an al-Qaeda affiliate.  I guess his promise that if the political winds turned sour, he would side with the Muslims included siding with those who consider us the Great Satan every time.

The non-profit humanitarian agency World Vision United States improperly transacted with the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) in 2014 with the approval of Obama.  He allowed government funds to be sent to an organization that had been sanctioned over its ties to terrorism.  I may not be a legal scholar but that sounds like an act of sedition and treason, but then I’m just a dumb deplorable so what could I know?

The ISRA had been sanctioned by the United States since 2004 after it had funneled about $5 million to Maktab al-Khidamat, the predecessor to Al-Qaeda controlled by Osama bin Laden.  I keep trying to give the benefit of the doubt and acknowledging that World Vision works to help people in need around the world, an admirable activity, they might not have known ISRA was on the sanctions list.  But, and that is a big ‘but’, government officials specifically released at least $115,000 of the grant even after it learned of the terrorism connection sanctions.  AFTER it was fully aware it provided funds to our sworn enemy.

World Vison’s legal department was notified of ISRA’s status as a sanctioned entity in September 2014.  Let me see, who was President?  It was not George W. Bush or Donald Trump.  It was Barack Hussein Obama and his Vice President Joe Biden.  In May 2015, the Obama administration fully cognizant of the sanctions recommend OFAC grant World Vision’s request for $125,000 for ISRA. 

I am less concerned with what World Vision knew or did not know than what the Obama administration clearly knew.  His billions in cash to Iran, the systematic dismantling of our military and the purging of the upper echelon of various branches, and his weaponizing of bureaus and agencies trouble me.  His complicity and that of Joe Biden in the targeting of Trump and Trump associates in 2016 cannot be overlooked.  The questionable financial windfalls of Biden and his family in connection with foreign governments not all friendly to the United States is troubling. 

We have mountains of information in various investigations that implicate Obama, Clinton, Biden, and various members of that administration, bureaus of government, and even members of Congress.  Yet, all that seems to be deemed business as usual in Washington.  This present Democratic Congress dating back decades is willing to send billions in foreign aid to countries for purposes that border on the ridiculous while ignoring Americans and America.  That is troubling!

Back to my question, “Where is America?”  If we are talking about the America of the beginning, it has been tarnished and twisted into an unrecognizable state.  If we are talking about the America of my youth when even Democrats and Republicans acknowledged the validity and authority of the Constitution, it has been eroded so dramatically it may not be restorable.  America, as described and defined in our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights no longer exists because of the systemic corruption of power hunger political elitists we keep sending back to Washington.

I do not know if America as established and envisioned by our Founders Established is recoverable without another revolution.  I pray that it is.  I only know that we cannot continue allowing politicians to go unscathed by corruption and allow them to infringe upon our inalienable rights and trample on the American constitution.  Everyone must be held to the same standard regardless of status or ethnicity. 

I believe that if we do not return to our moral moorings and a renewed valuing of the Constitution that America is gone forever.  I believe that the only thing, short of a full-blown revolution and a new government established is GOD!  I believe that God is sovereign and All-Powerful.  However, I also recognize that He gives us choices, and, in those choices, we determine the outcome.  I am praying for an outpouring of His Spirit, Word, Love, Grace, and Mercy on America and the world.  LORD, let it begin in me.  Transform me, I pray!

God bless you and God bless America!
