THOMAS JEFFERSON GOT IT RIGHT…


There is a quote from Mr. Jefferson that fits today’s situation.  “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to always be alive.”  That is appropriate for today! 

I know that I sound like a broken record with my continual harping about the need to “take back our country” and “return to our moral moorings.” If we don’t stand together and resist the takeover by those on the Left and those who hate our American System of Freedom and Government, we will stand together in chains!  Sadly, we have not demonstrated the unity or resolve to stand together and a House Divided always falls.  I want an America that I do not have to describe to my grandchildren and great-grandchildren as something that we used to have where men were free, private property was protected, and we enjoyed the freedom of religion. 

I am not calling for armed resistance. I am calling for active resistance through every medium available to educate the public as to what is really happening in our current government and has been for decades.  I am calling for active involvement in local groups, organizations, campaigns, and elections.  We must do that in order to select and elect people to office that will uphold our core values, respect the Constitution, and value a Free America. 

I believe that we must do this from the ground up without neglecting any level all the way to the top.  It is not enough to get good local officials in office.  It is not enough to get State officials who hold those values?  No, we must replace those who are willing to sell us out at every level all the way to the Whitehouse.  It may take several election cycles to get the job done, but if we band together and stay the course, we have a slim hope of accomplishing this goal.  If we do not, we have no hope.

Therefore, I ask everyone to commit themselves to become involved prayerfully and vocally at every level of the political scene.  I believe that your and our Liberty and Freedom depends on it! 

That demands another question, “Should Christians be Political or involved in Politics?”    When I say, political or involved in politics, I am focused on the involved portion. I do suggest that pastors should preach every sermon like a campaign speech.  That is not necessary, but what is necessary is to call evil what it is and honor the directives of the Bible. 

Let me quote Thomas Jefferson as the foundation for my comments, or as some will insist, my rant or a diatribe.  He said, “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?” –Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.XVIII, 1782. ME 2:227

I’ve been asked many times how I can reconcile being a preacher with being political in my speaking and labors.  I have always believed them to be uniquely connected in the sense that without the God-given freedom politically and socially that we have enjoyed for more than two centuries in America we will lose our religious freedom as well.

Likewise, the Constitution does not prohibit the Church, preachers, or members of any congregation from speaking out against what we believe to be an offense and violation of the teachings of Scripture.  The tired old argument of “Separation of Church and State” is not a Constitutional one but a modern interpretation of convenience and even embraced by many Christians.  It is based on a false premise that somehow if the Church and State are separated then we keep our Religious Freedom, but the converse is true. 

The Constitution designed a provision to prevent the Federal Government from establishing a National Religion, such as England had, and promote it above any others.  The founders desired that Americans be free to worship God as they chose within the parameters of not violating the rights and safety of others.  They wanted a person to be free to believe in God or not believe in God but not to prevent eliminate God from the political spectrum and process because it offended some who did not believe.  No that would violate our ability to have Freedom of Speech. 

Today, we have been lulled into a stupor politically and morally.  We have become complacent or duped into believing that it is okay for a minority of people to dictate to the majority what they can and cannot do from a religious standpoint in the political arena.   The atheist can be vocal and express their views, today the Muslims can, and even those who worship satan are allowed to practice and promote their beliefs, but Christians are disallowed. 

That is amazing considering that interwoven in the fabric of our Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights is clear evidence of the Bible and Biblical teaching.  The Bible and God influenced the thinking of our founders and it guided their deliberations and was a foundational part of this nation becoming a free nation.  Yet, we have allowed the banning of God from public institutions.  We have allowed the fallacious instruction to the churches, and religious organizations that if they engage in the political debate their non-profit status will be called into question.  I wonder if this is because, for many, God has become theoretical rather than a real living being, THE LIVING GOD!

I say to those seeking to, “Call my participation into question?”  Who am I to obey, God or man?  If something is wrong based on the clear teachings of Scripture, how can I be silent?  If I do not warn the wicked to turn from their wicked ways, their blood is on my hands.  If I do not try to lead the blind into the light, I am guilty of aiding their demise.  If I do not stand in the gap and make up the hedge, who will?  Therefore, as a Christian, a preacher, and a former pastor it is my conviction that to not be involved in the political landscape would be a violation of my faith.

Please understand, I am not suggesting that everyone should feel or believe as I do, but I am giving you the reason that I stay so actively engaged in this process.  It has less to do with the Democrats or Republicans than honoring God.  I do believe that the Leftists are following a destructive agenda for this country.  I believe that God is the source and solution to what ails America and the world.  I believe that if we can somehow be an instrument in seeing a Restored America, then we will also see a Nation that Returns to God!  I ask that you prayerfully consider that in every future election and Vote for Freedom! 

God Bless you and God bless America!

POLICE STATE, BANANA REPUBLIC – Demise of The Republic…


What I am going to say may infuriate some, trouble others, and get an acknowledged Amen from a few.  I believe that I see all the earmarks of America being ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a Police State, Banana Republic, and the demise of our Republic.  I pray that I am wrong, but I do not believe I am.  I believe I see the handwriting on the wall and the proof is in the pudding if we care to observe and are willing to honestly address what is going on.

Did you ever dream that you would see a wall or fence with razor wire atop it surrounding the Capitol in America?  Did you ever envision a time when there would be a virtual quarantine of the entire nation, as we have witnessed over the past year?  If you envisioned that did you envision it with almost no pushback from the populace and almost sheep-like or lemming following of the public to the edicts, directives, and orders?  Did you ever dream that we would endure that lockdown for more than a year, watch our electoral system be dismantled, and our borders eradicated?  I did not and I have seen some very dire things in my spirit over the past decade or so.

The intense hatred exhibited by the Left and some on the Right for the man Donald John Trump for over four years and continuing is beyond anything I ever dreamed I would witness in America.  The power grab by local, state, and national officials during the pandemic panic are eerily similar to those of Police State Banana Republics stripping citizens of the Freedoms they are deemed to have a right to and have enjoyed.  What I am seeing in America sends shock waves down my spine and causes me more trepidation than I can muster words to describe.  I do not live, in fear, but I am petrified for my nation!

We have witnessed riots, looting, the takeover of government facilities by BLM, ANTIFA, and other Leftist groups with nothing more than crickets from the media and the Democrats in Washington.  We have heard the calls to ‘defund the police’ and watched the incredible chaos and destruction that ensued as the police were hamstrung in the carrying out of their assigned duties.  We have watched citizens forced into facilities that almost guaranteed their deaths by Governors such as the tyrant from New York.  It is deeply troubling, and I wish I could say, the wave is past, and we are returning to normal.  We are not!  We are heading down the road of despotism and the implementation of a Police State making us another Banana Republic run by an Oligarchy or a Dictator.  America, imagine that!

If anyone dares to question the 2020 Election, they are deemed an insurrectionist, anarchist, domestic terrorist, and un-patriotic.  But the Democrat-controlled Congress can move to strip a Republican of their duly won seat in Congress because they don’t like the outcome and deem that justifiable.  We have seen the Guam national Guardsmen march to the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) as a demonstration of their claim of the legitimacy of Guam as a U.S. entity.  We have witnessed the complete and rapid overturning and de-legitimizing of all Trump policies both domestic and foreign.  It is troubling!

We have a transsexual at the highest level in the Health and Human Services Department.  We have the encouragement and demand that there be a re-imaging of the police in our major cities.  We have observed the non-enforcement of our federal immigration laws and law that pertain to our national security.  We have watched as the Woke, Revisionist, PC Police, and Cancel Culture attempt to sanitize our history by taking down statues they dislike and burning history books they deem lacking the message of their woke-ness.  We have observed our educational system revamped so that nothing of our true history is taught and only the agenda of the Police State is taught.

This is not simply an attempt to change a few things and make adjustments in our history or direction. This is a war on our culture, conservatism, the constitution, on white men of European descent, and on the Christian Faith that does not embrace the new biblical interpretations of the adherents of the Woke proponents. 

Our Founders were keenly aware of the requirement of morality and reason in the pursuit of ‘Keeping the Republic’ and ensuring it did not become another Despotic Police State Banana Republic.  They are summarily dismissed by the Left as is the Constitution when it clearly restricts them.

For example, in his First Inaugural Address, George Washington made this connection quite forcefully, including a broad allusion to the Bible:

“[T]here is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness, between duty and advantage, between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained [see Proverbs 14:34]: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”

Likewise, President John Adams made this connection explicit:

“We have no Government armed with Power capable of contending with human Passions unbridled by morality and Religion. Avarice, Ambition Revenge or Gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a Whale goes through a Net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Simply put, a Constitution for a free people, necessarily assumes they will exercise a degree of self-control that doesn’t take place in other societies.  The drift and shift away from morality, honesty, and integrity destroy the social fabric of a nation. It lends itself to disorder in everyday life.  It opens the door for sexual license, laziness, dissipations of every kind, heightened criminality, perversions, diluted respect for private property rights, and disdain for acquiring truth and knowledge.  That allows the nefarious seekers of transforming America into a Police State the path to achieving that objective.

We are facing the dangers of H.R.1 which seeks to provide the pathway to one-party control of our government and legitimized electoral fraud.  H.R.5 would legitimize the federal government’s definition of sexuality rather than science, history, biology, or the Bible.  Those two bills defy human reason and are in direct conflict with our Constitution and the Bible.  Everything is dumbed down to make the lowest level student equal with the achievers. That will translate into slothfulness in the workplace and the destruction of our Free Market System of Economics.

The time is coming when the federal government will seek to tell us what we can eat, what we can wear, what we can drive, where we can live, work, and travel.  They will seek to monitor what ministers preach to their congregations and close the doors of the violators and incarcerate the ministers who object.  You may insist that cannot happen in America because it would cause another revolution.  I say, “You are not watching what is happening.”  The dismantling of our military the federalizing of law enforcement provides the government a formidable force to quell any uprising by poorly organized citizens. 

We would need another group of leaders like George Washington, John and Sam Adams, James Madison, Thomas Paine, and Benjamin Franklin to emerge.  Do we have that?  If not, America’s days may well be numbered as the Free Constitutional Republic.  I pray that I am wrong.

What are we to do?  We are to Seek God with a Whole Heart and return to our moral moorings as a nation.  We are to Seek God with our Minds and become informed biblically, historically, and societally.  We are to Seek God with our All and invest ourselves in the fight for Freedom.  We are engaged in a war for Faith, Family, and Freedom, will you enlist?

God bless you and God bless America!

WHAT DO THEY MEAN BY GOVERNING?


Politicians and average citizens speak of governing, referring to our politics, politicians, and system of government.  I have reached the point that I am not sure what they mean when they say, “Governing or Govern.”  It is an issue that deeply concerns me because I have a reasonable understanding of our Republican System of Government and the intent of the Framers of our Constitution.  I believe it should concern anyone with a rudimentary understanding of our American System.

I do not believe that the modern Democrats, now controlling most of our government nor the Swamp Denizens or Deep State principles have any interest in governing with our best interest at heart.  I believe that governing is not on their radar but dominance, totalitarian authoritarian control is.  You may not agree and believe me to be overreacting, and I hope you are correct.  However, if there is even a whiff of cause for concern it is time to pay attention.

The Left has demonstrated that they are far more interested in pandering to special-interest groups and foreign entities that can line their pockets and help them amass greater power. The insanity of the cancel culture, the woke movement, the revisionist where everything is off-limits unless it is gender-neutral, and non-white is growing.  The Leftists attack everything Trump, America, and Constitutional but are crickets when it comes to Communist China’s racism, bigotry, and human rights failures.

Why?  I believe it is because China owns many of them, and the flow of money is far more important to those groups than morality, sanity, freedom, and liberty for the people.  The Left, namely Joe Biden, is committed to using Executive Fiat to enact policies that will, in their minds, buy votes and guarantee power.  They desire to cement their hold on our government and the electoral process. How is inconsequential, the end is their objective.  The constitution be damned, and the American people be damned, they want and intend to have Totalitarian Power.

They are actively engaged in undoing and undermining everything good and pro-America that the Trump administration accomplished.  They desire to eradicate from history and the minds of voters anything reflecting the presence or person of Donald Trump.  They ignore Hitler, but focus on Mr. Potato Head, the Muppets, Gender, and demand that if you are white you are a supremacist and dangerous.  If you are a conservative, you are a domestic terrorist and must be censored.  If you are a veteran or a former police officer, you are a seditionist and must have your 2nd Amendment Rights revoked.  This is insane!

The Executive Orders issued by Joe Biden, thus far have advanced the hope of achieving those objectives.  It is my view that we never had a president in American history more focused on the overall good of the American people than Donald J. Trump.  We have had some good presidents and some bad ones.  Some of the good was very good and the bad was very bad but the contrast between Joe Biden and Donald Trump transcends all previous administrations.  Trump fought for Americans and Biden is fighting for the Globalist desire of Total Domination and the destruction of everything not Woke, or Green.  That is disastrous!

The sovereignty of America as the Free Constitutional Republic is not part of the agenda of the Democrats in 2021.  The overt attempts to eradicate our border, open the floodgates of sick, state-dependent, and anti-American immigrants are deadly.  Everything Biden and the Democrats are doing has been and will be counterproductive for the American people, but they are followers of Climate Change, Gender nullification, abortion on demand, global citizenship, etc.  Contrastingly, Donald Trump acted in the overall best interest of America and the Constitution.  That will irk, some but that is how I see it and the facts are the facts.

Donald Trump is a pragmatist and it appears that he, with a certain amount of naivety, thought that even his political enemies loved America and would come around to supporting his pro-Americanism.  He was wrong!  I believe that, to a degree, he and his advisers misjudged the level of personal hatred toward him and his style.  His defeat of Hillary Clinton and avowed desire to ‘drain the swamp’ drew the ire of Establishment Types on both sides of the political aisle.  He became a threat to their cronyism and power and that meant he must be destroyed. 

I believe there was fraud in the election as has been documented in video, data, and via sworn affidavits, but the courts including the Supreme Court turned a blind eye.  Some of the ridiculous rulings and the incoming Attorney General’s view that taking over a courthouse after hours did not constitute insurrection or terrorism.  What?  If a person robs a bank after hours does that mean it not a crime? 

The puppet masters pulling Biden’s strings must be pulling their hair out, at times, when he cannot even read their diatribe from a mega teleprompter.  He has difficulty putting two sentences together in a coherent manner.  This man, that the Democrats want to strip the Nuclear Football Codes from is running our country?  God help us!

Biden has rejoined the destructive Paris Climate Accord, the World Health Organization, declared war on the fossil fuel industry, and our national sovereignty.  He has reportedly declared that he will seek to use whatever means necessary to destroy our 2nd Amendment Rights without going through the amendatory process.

His Climate Czar, John Kerry, a prolific violator of their own carbon emissions standards or desires committed a cardinal sin for a politician, he told the truth.  I did not say he tells the truth but in the following quote, he told the truth.  He said, “…The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what — that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions — remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions — it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65% of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”

When you are willing to destroy the economy, lock people in the prison of their own homes, create paranoia and panic that results in the loss of hope, you are not interested in people but power!  Gasoline and energy prices are soaring.  Jobs are being lost at an alarming rate.  Illegal immigration soaring beyond and the push for immediate amnesty and citizenship for this new cache of Democratic voters is destroying our republic.

Nothing that Biden and his cronies are doing is in the interest of the American people but in the interest of control, dominance, and power.  Governing is not their objective unless by that you mean Totalitarian Governance.  If that is what you mean, then yes, they want to Govern.  Governing Constitutionally is not even an afterthought in their plan and agenda.  America, how did we let this happen and what are we going to do about it?

What are we to do? First, turn back to God and call on Him for deliverance. Second, turn back to God and intercede. Third, turn back to God and get involved at the grassroots level and vote in every election. Pay attention, but most of all set your heart to seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness!

God bless you and God bless America!

FIGHTING A WAR WITH THE WRONG WEAPONS or USING THEM WRONG…


At the outset to save some people time, I am writing from my Christian perspective about what is happening in American politics.  What I am suggesting is my view based on my faith, my study of the Word of God, and my observation of politics and life.  I believe that America is in dire straits and on the brink of total destruction but can be revived and redeemed.  However, I do not believe we can win this war, fighting the way we have been.

Now that I have provided the opportunity for some to exit stage left and shake the dust off their shoes at me, I will proceed.  If you enjoy the infighting and the mudslinging name-calling method, you probably won’t like what I am going to say.  If you enjoy the anger, the hate, and the push and shove of the dirty business of American politics in the modern era, you may not like my suggestions.  However, I hope you are open-minded and concerned enough to hear the conclusion of the whole presentation before throwing me and my message into the proverbial file thirteen.

If that last paragraph is accurate, then why would I suggest that we do not need to give tit for tat, insult for insult, and push for every shove? Why should we not exact a pound of flesh and eye for eye or tooth for tooth?  If they are willing to use any means and method to achieve their agenda why shouldn’t we do the same?  If they believe the end justifies the means and nothing is off-limits including genocide and interment into indoctrination concentration camps, why should we be less aggressive in our approach?  If they are driven by hate and openly call for violence against those who disagree, why should those on the Right not do the same?

Why?  Because I believe that is an example of using the wrong weapons to fight the war.  In fact, I believe, to a great extent we have been fighting the wrong war with the wrong weapons and focus and achieving the wrong or no positive results.  There is a way to redeem and revive America and see her restored to the ideals that were embodied in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.  That way involves the political, but its foundational base is not politics as usual. 

I believe that the number one problem in America is not Left vs Right, Conservative vs Liberal, racial, gender, or who is in control in Washington.  I believe the number one problem that has brought us to the place we are on the brink of annihilation as the Free Constitutional Republic is “The Human Heart!”  What I mean by the heart is how we look at life and our relationship with our creator. Those determine how we view everything else and how we relate to others.  If it is all about me then anyone standing in my way must be rendered impotent and must be defeated. 

For decades we have engaged in partisan politics in America. The inclusion of identity politics and the fanning of the flames of bitterness, fear, and hate has produced the fruit we desired. We are now reaping the harvest of what we have sown. Those of us who want the Free Constitutional Republic with Limited Government and Free Enterprise are the targets of a coalition of media, academia, activists, and politicians.  It is my observation that some of those in the coalition are extremely ideologically diverse but their hatred for America as founded, our Free Enterprise System of Economics, personal liberties, and the Constitutional Republican System of Government enables them to share the same bed.

Is it Stupidity that drives them?  Hardly, although many of their proposals are moronic.  Is it a lack of understanding of true history that causes them to act as they do?  Yes and no.  We have at least two if not three generations who have gone through the offerings of public education and institutions of higher learning taught by the activists of the 60s and that has rendered masses of people historically ignorant.  Many of those involved in the toxicity of the Left are very intelligent people but have ascribed to a flawed philosophy and applied their intelligence wrongly producing damage to the foundations of our republic and freedom.

What is the root of the ideology of those making up the political left today?  I believe it is evidenced in a noticeable decline in morality, selfishness, self-centeredness, and believing a lie.  When a nation, any nation, draws back from its basic moral roots and abandons its belief in its creator that nation experiences the fruits of depravity.  That depravity allows them to devalue human life (abortion).  That condition demands they, as Adam and Eve experienced in the Garden of Eden, elevate themselves to the position of God and reject His supremacy.

Our Founding Fathers recognized the hand of Providence in the birth and development of the Republic.  Benjamin Franklin in his address to the Constitutional Convention on July 28, 1787, said, “I have lived, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth — that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?”  

Patrick Henry in his letter to Archibald Blair on January 8, 1799, said, “The great pillars of all government…[are] virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”  

John Adams in his address to the militia of Massachusetts in 1798 said, “We have no government armed in power capable of contending in human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”  Then in his defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America in 1788 said, “We have no government armed in power capable of contending in human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”  

What are we to do? How are we to fight this War for America?  First and foremost, we cannot be as they and play by the same rules.  We cannot engage in the offering of hate for hate, bitterness for bitterness, insult for insult or seek to destroy our opponents in every conceivable way.  We must not be vile, hate-filled, and embittered.  We dare not simply rely on politics, debates, advertisements, articles, and slander.  We must not make the polls or voting booths our sole source and hope.

What are we to do?  We must seek God first and foremost!  We must return to Him with a whole heart!  We must demonstrate love where hate is prevalent!  We must sow seeds of kindness when it would be easier to wield our swords!  We must follow the prescription of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and in humility turn to God in repentance and pray for the best good of the republic.  If we get our hearts right and make God first in our hearts and lives, we will impact our world.  Lest anyone think I am saying if we turn to God magically the Left will seek the shadows and hide surrendering.  They will not! 

However, if we follow the biblical directives regarding our relationship to others and God, we will find that God will directly and indirectly intervene and provide us victories heretofore not experienced.  Since my wife went home to Jesus, I have revisited my entire life and view of everything.  I have been convicted by the Holy Spirit and the Word that following the ways of the flesh achieves no lasting victory.  It may satisfy my thirst for vengeance temporarily but will guarantee the cyclical political condition to persist.  I want lasting victory and desire to see America revived and restored. 

It is time for all who believe in God and are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ to lay aside their personal preferences and SEEK GOD!  What I want is secondary to what He desires.  What I prefer is secondary to what God deems the best course of action for the nation.  God may allow us to become a third-rate empire and inconsequential on the world stage.  That will be our condition and position if we keep fighting the way we have.  Hate divides and renders reconciliation impossible.  Love is stronger than hate.  Our love must be great and capable of exhibiting tough love where required.  But if we continue to devour each other we will render both sides weakened to the point that outside and diabolical inside influences will destroy us.

I hope that what I have attempted to say has not been too vague and that many will be inspired to intercede for America and seek God with a whole heart. 

God bless you and God bless America!

THE AMERICAN FLAG – – A Walk Through History…


It breaks my heart that there is the disrespect for the American flag that exists today!  It saddens the heart of this Veteran, Patriot, Christian, American, and Lover of Freedom that people would burn, tarnish, and disrespect that symbol of freedom.   I served in Vietnam in 1967 and would serve again if my country asked me to defend her or the freedom of others in the world.  I do not regret serving.  If that makes me evil in your eyes, then so be it.

I want to utilize some pictures in my blog post and reminders of the transition to the current American Flag that has 50 Stars.  It has been a long journey and the blood of multitudes has been shed to acquire and maintain this Republic as the Free Constitutional Republic our Founders envisioned and we have enjoyed!

A declaration that I have always deeply appreciated is: “Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation.” That was written on June 14, 1777, when a Marine Committee of the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution establishing a new flag for the United States of America.

The first United States flag was the Stars and Stripes flag.  Prior to June 14, 1777, it was the Grand Union Flag and still bore the Union Jack in its design.

The resolution signed on June 14, 1777, gave no instructions as to how many points the stars should have, nor did it mention how those stars should be arranged on the blue union.  One popular design was the Betsy Ross flag.

Another popular flag in American history was the Bennington flag.  It was used by the American militia during the Battle of Bennington, August 16, 1777.

In 1795, the number of stars and stripes increased from 13 to 15 to reflect the entry of Vermont and Kentucky as states of the union.  It was this flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star-Spangled Banner.

In 1818, after five more states had gained admittance, Congress passed legislation fixing the number of stripes at 13 for the original 13 colonies and requiring that the number of stars equals the number of states.  The last new star, bringing the total to 50, was added on July 4, 1960, after Hawaii became a state.   That is the flag that flies today.

“The colours of the pales are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the colour of the Chief signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice. The Olive branch and arrows denote the power of peace & war which is exclusively vested in Congress. The Constellation denotes a new State taking its place and rank among other sovereign powers. The Escutcheon is born on the breast of an American Eagle without any other supporters to denote that the United States of America ought to rely on their own Virtue.”

Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, in his Remarks and Explanation of the Great Seal – June 20, 1782:

“I honor God first in my life, but my respect for the Flag of the United States of America is not something I compromise.  When I see it misused and disrespected it bothers me more than a little.  When I see it despised by other nations, my anger rises, but I understand their hatred for it and us.  When I see it despised by those who are citizens in this country or are here illegally or legally and are not citizens, I have zero tolerance for that attitude.  If you don’t want to be here don’t!  If this country is not for you, find one that is.  If you cannot be respectful when you are in our house, you are not welcome in our house.  I would not come into your home and be disrespectful.  America is my temporary home and I expect you to respect that.  Heaven will be my eternal home and I guarantee you would respect God’s home so don’t disrespect ours!  Thank you!”

America’s emblem that is recognizable around the world and regarded by multitudes as a symbol of freedom should never be tarnished.  If you feel it is your right to burn, trash, deface, or otherwise disrespect the American flag I would suggest you might be in the wrong country.  No, I am not saying you have no right to your point of view but to disrespect the sacrifices of those who died serving this nation are unacceptable.

If you believe America is a corrupt evil empire that needs to be transformed, then take your efforts to the polls and vote for candidates who share your views.  But, show a modicum of respect for the sacrifices that were made to afford you that privilege and do not kneel during the National Anthem.  Do not burn the American flag.  Do not otherwise tarnish or deface it.  If you do, you demonstrate that you do not believe what you claim to believe.  If you believe that there should be equality and justice for all then civilly fight your fight, not in rioting, looting, or tarnishing the flag and the memories of those who served.

I do not expect everyone to agree but I stand for the National Anthem and respect the Flag. I kneel before God only!  I will not be intimidated or coerced into ceding to the demands of those who want America transformed into a Socialistic nation.  I will continue to stand firmly for Faith, Family, and Freedom. 

God bless you and God bless America!

THE PROPHECY of GEORGE WASHINGTON…


As I begin this and as you read, some will argue that what I will advance was not a prophecy but an opinion.  I won’t argue but I believe that it was prophetic and at the least a dire warning that has gone unheeded by generations following. 

Our founding fathers saw the dangers facing the fledgling nation and attempted to give us guidelines and adequate protections that would perpetuate a Republic which would enjoy Constitutionalism and Freedom into perpetuity.  They tried but we ignored their warnings, prophetic declarations, and did an end-around their attempted protections and guidelines.  We did it!  You may argue, it was the politicians, not the people.  Let me argue that the politicians could not have done what they have done if the people had heeded the warnings and demanded the observance of the constitution.  We slept and they infringed!

What was the prophecy given by George Washington?  In his farewell speech on September 19, 1796, the first president and father of our country said: “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of right and order which Heaven itself has ordained.  Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.  In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.”  WOW!    He quoted in (Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States and America’s God and Country) – “reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in the exclusion of religious principles.  It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.” 

In Proverbs 29:2 we read, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”  Today, we have those on both sides of the political aisle who believe that everything of God and the Bible should be eliminated from education and all government institutions.  Washington clearly did not share that view, nor did the other founders as can be easily identified and quoted. 

On June 25, 1962, the United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale ruled 6-1 that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in schools violated the First Amendment by constituting an establishment of religion.  The following year, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the Court disallowed Bible readings in public schools for similar reasons.  That was the culmination of over 100 years of labor by those hating God and the Bible to disallow anything of God and the Bible in education.

Thomas Jefferson lamented, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”  Noah Webster said, “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country.  He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice.  As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.”  We are paying the price of ignoring the warnings of our founders and allowing the politicians, activists, and courts to strip God and the Bible from education.  The door that was opened has led to an array of detrimental legislation that has weakened the foundations of our Republic.  We ignored the warnings, believed a lie, and are reaping the harvest of our delusion.

Gouverneur Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independences declared, “For avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy…the only ground of hope must be on the morals of the people.  I believe that religion is the only solid base of morals and that morals are the only possible support of free governments.  Therefore, educations should teach the precepts of religion and the duties of man towards God.”

Benjamin Franklin said, “A Bible and a newspaper in every house, a good school in every district – all studied and appreciated as they merit – are the principal support of virtue, morality, and civil liberty.”  Fischer Ames considered the author of the Frist Amendment supported the Bible in public education.  He said, “[Why] should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a schoolbook? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the Sacred Book that is thus early impressed lasts long; and probably if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind.”

In America, we are witnessing things that demand God’s propitious smiles be withheld from us.  How can the propitious smiles of heaven be on a nation that devalues life and practices a form of idolatry in abortion?  I say a form of idolatry because the idolatry of Baal worship included the sacrifice of children.  Israel sacrificed thousands of their children but in America, we have sacrifice millions to the god of self-indulgence.  We call it names to make it more palatable but that life in the womb is a human being not a blob of tissue.  It is not about a woman’s right or a woman’s health but convenience. What about the rights and health of that living being in the womb, the unborn baby?

The propitious smiles of heaven cannot be expected on a nation that slaps God in the face with the myriad of genders now deemed a reality.  God created two genders, male and female.  God instituted marriage between one man and one woman.  God established the home and desired procreation to replenish the earth.  When we endorse sex changes, same-sex marriages, the dismantling of the home and family we abandon the eternal rules of right and order that God has established.  We trample on God’s Word and expect Him to bless us.  How arrogant can we be?

The fanning of the flames of hate, perpetuating bigotry, racism, and every other dividing element in society demands that God withhold His propitious smiles.  America has been blessed and our founders recognized the divine hand of God’s providence in our becoming a nation.  For much of our existence, we have maintained our respect for God, at least publicly, and allowed Him to be recognized.  That changed dramatically in the 1960s and now we are reaping the harvest of destruction.

Proverbs 14:34 declares, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”  Today we have become so anesthetized to wickedness we are no longer bothered by immoral leaders or politicians.  We no longer have our moral sensibilities troubled by the trash that is on the movie screens, televisions, music, and much of our culture.  If we want to see America restored and revived, we must return to God and our founding principles and restore the only thing that can stem the tide of depravity back to our public square and our education.

I believe that our solution is not electing a different set of politicians from an opposing party.  That might help and could give us a brief window of opportunity to get things back on the right path but will not solve the problem.  Legislation will not change the hearts, ONLY GOD can do that!  If we, as believers, would dedicate ourselves to living godly lives, teaching, and admonishing others, including our rulers of God’s precepts, and pray for our nation we would see a glimmer of hope arise.  If we would reassume the responsibility for the teaching and training of our children and “train them in the way, they should go” we would see the flicker of hope restored.

We can recover, but ONLY if we change course and cease making politics king and recognize Jesus as the only true King of kings and Lord of lords!  I ask all who love God and love freedom to join me in the pursuit of God and seek to demonstrate the Golden Rule in our lives.  Let’s become those who stand in the gap and make up the hedge.  Let’s become those who are willing to go to jail and die for our freedom and the truth that makes us free, THE WORD OF GOD!

God bless you and God bless America!

WHEN YOU SOW TO THE WIND…


A biblical passage found in Hosea 8:7 is germane to what has been happening politically for the past four-plus years.  “They have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”  The Amplified rendering is, “For they sow the wind [in evil] And they reap the whirlwind [in disaster].”  I do not know how or when the storm will come for those who have stirred up chaos and hate for the past four-plus years, but I believe that it is a coming reality. 

One of Job’s comforters in Job 4:8 said, “As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.”  We know from numerous passages that we reap what we sow, and we get what we give.  It is the Law of Harvest or the Law of Reciprocity.  I believe the declaration of the Bible and have observed in life that things have a way of coming back to us. 

We watched in dismay during the previous administration, the Democrats and some Republicans sowing discord in America in their anti-Trump rhetoric.  Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America was deemed abnormal.  He was assuredly different and colorful.  He was not without personal or moral failings and was not the normal political animal we have been accustomed to.  In that respect, for many, he was a breath of fresh air.  He said what he meant and meant what he said.  That, the Left, the Establishment Republicans, the Media, the Activist, and Hollywood deemed abnormal.  How dare he, not follow their rules of decorum.

The response to Trump was extreme, hate-filled, and violent.  It was not those attending MAGA rallies that burned buildings, beat up citizens, and created mayhem rioting, looting, and breaking the law.  It was an extension of the Democratic Party and with their full endorsement and encouragement.  The media insulated the Democrats, protected the lawbreakers, and trashed Trump and his supporters.  We were abnormal and even evil to the Leftists. 

I recall when Donald Trump won the Republican nomination, the Democrats, almost universally, insisted that they would no longer abide by the normal rules of American politics.  They deemed him so unacceptable they had to stop him at all costs.  Jim Rutenberg of the New York Times declared, “Mr. Trump’s candidacy is “extraordinary and precedent-shattering” and “to pretend otherwise is to be disingenuous with readers”  He then said, “It would also be an abdication of political journalism’s most solemn duty: to ferret out what the candidates will be like in the most powerful office in the world.”  That was their shot across the bow and forewarning of their intended path of coverage.  It would be vile, and they would seek to Trash Trump at every turn.

Amazingly, they have been virtual crickets and cheerleaders for the Biden campaign and administration.  I wonder what changed?  Wait, I know, Biden, to them, represents normal.  His corruption is excused because he follows their rules.  His moral failings are justified because he is one of the political elites.  His bad policies and agenda are acceptable because he is not Trump and a member of the Deep State and a denizen of the political Swamp.  His family ties to corruption and his connection to foreign governments that hate us are not to be discussed.  His mental acuity is diminished even as Biden was observed repeating an order generated in his earpiece to “salute the Marines.” 

The Big Tech Companies, Banks, Financial Institutions, and other agencies of the federal government have launched a full-scale war on Trump, his subordinates, conservatives, and Christians who do not kowtow to the Leftist views.  If one dares to declare the Bible as it is written or defend the Constitution in its original intent, they are worthy of extermination.  The view of the Left is that we all need to be rounded up and placed in reeducation camps to reprogram us.  They need to save us from our mental and moral failings.  We rejected their agenda therefore we are unworthy of life.

Virtually every president in American history has enjoyed the usual 100-day honeymoon.  That was not so with Donald John Trump.  The Democrats announced plans and the desire to impeach him before he was inaugurated.  They deemed him divisive and evil, but with Biden, there is the insistence that we must cooperate for the good of the country.  Why was that not the mindset four years ago? 

I have never witnessed in my 74 years on the planet, the hate, rhetoric, and diatribe launched against President Trump.  Senator Cory Booker was one of the Democrats that encouraged people to go to the Capitol and “get up in the face of some Congress people.”  Wow!  He was not charged with inciting insurrection, but that is exactly what he did.  Senator Tim Kaine, Hillary’s running mate urged people to “engage in street fights” with Trump supporters.  Was that decried as vile and unacceptable, outside the norm of civil behavior and normal political decorum?  Is the Moon made of Blue Cheese?  Do Pigs Fly? 

Dare we forget then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch telling people to “bleed and die in the streets”?  How about Congresswoman Maxine Waters encouraging people to “physically harass anyone from the Trump administration”?  I remind you that Kamala Harris insisted that the “violent protests in June of 2020 not let up.”

The list is almost endless of the Democrats encouraging people to become violent against Trump and his supporters.  We witnessed entertainers and other leftists imagining and dreaming of beheading the President, bombing him, and blowing up the White House, shooting him, raping, and sodomizing his children, and more.  Joe Biden repeatedly spoke of wanting to beat Trump up.  But Joe seems to have a vision of himself as a tough guy who more than once challenged someone who questioned him.

There is information that in November 2020 activists were plotting and planning to attack the Capitol.  There is video evidence of the Capitol police allowing the people to enter the building.  Those who organized that attack were not at the speech but were already at the Capitol.  To claim that Trump incited the riot is just another of the many examples of the Left ‘sowing the wind.’  I believe that, in time, they will reap what they have sown. I am not justifying rioting of any kind, simply alluding to the anomalies which are visible and the hypocrisy of calling the rioting, looting, burning, stealing, and harming citizens ‘mostly peaceful’ and anything connected to Trump evil and violent!

The agenda that Biden and the Democrats have embarked on is and will destroy much of our Republic.  I only hope there will be enough left in 2022 and 2024 to begin the process of reclaiming and restoring the Republic.  I pray that the whirlwind will sweep them up and out of office as the American people feel the pain of their agenda.  I pray that it will transpire before full-blown Socialism with Authoritarian Totalitarian rule is imposed.  I pray that before we lose all our freedoms and before another Civil War is waged the whirlwind will sweep them away.  I might add, sweep some of the GOP away with it. 

The pain caused by liberalism will be felt not just by those who supported Donald Trump, but the pinch will be experienced in virtually every sector of society.  I pray for America! I believe with every fiber of my being that if we do not reintroduce the dimension of God’s Love into the equation and view other citizens as creations of God, we will never find peace. If we do not find peace we will endure war and that will result in our demise as a Constitutional Republic.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE CURSE OF WOKE PROGRESSIVISM and TOXIC LIBERALISM…


I read recently that historian Tom Holland in Dominion: The Making of the Western Mind (2019) contended that ‘wokeness’ is an offshoot of Christianity.  I contend that it is a perversion, not an offshoot!  They two have little in common and the objective is not the same.  Therefore, I believe that Mr. Holland is errant in his thesis. 

In listening to some critique wokeness and the path America is on in the pursuit of this idea there was a growing consensus that this movement will crash and burn because of its flawed foundation and moral failure.  The utopian expectations advanced are impossible to achieve.  The only utopia that will ever exist, is Heaven and that is because God is a Good, Holy, Righteous, and Perfect God.  His Mercy and Justice form a perfect balance, unlike anything that humans can produce.

I pray that this mentality of wokeness and toxic progressivism found in the liberal ideology being advance will implode.  The only hope for that to happen is for people to awaken from their slumber and begin to see reality not view everything through the rose-colored classes the media and liberals advance. 

Will there come a time when the followers of this ideology will discover that it is impossible to live up to or produce their utopian expectations?  Will the cognitive dissonance of living in a state of self-contradiction translate into a raging furnace of desire to punish others for not being perfect?  If that transpires, and it seems that it is a growing reality, a reactionary response will occur and that could result in the demise of their ideological agenda.

Mr. Holland sought to give examples of Christian sects, which do not represent the whole of Christianity, following the pattern of utopianism or wokeness.  He cited the Taborites who established a utopian settlement outside Prague in 1419.  It was a communistic society which is problematic for this Christian.  There were no ranks or authority and that can only produce anarchy.  Everyone was equal in everything, which is not possible.  They claimed to be peaceful and compassionate, like the Left of today but deemed it necessary that all who opposed their views (enemies) must be put to the sword and eradicated.  That is not Christian!

If you read his book or excerpts from it you will find it difficult if not impossible to determine if Mr. Holland views ‘wokeness’ as good or bad.  He is vague as are many of the politicians advancing this utopianism today.  I will concede that Mr. Holland is correct in identifying this mentality as an offshoot of secular Christianity, not Christianity.  I contend that wokeness is not a reflection of Jesus’ teachings found in the New Testament. 

I believe that Christianity and all believers in God and followers of the LORD Jesus Christ should desire to bring out the best in everyone!  Christianity is walking in the Light of God’s Love and should always point to that light.  It should be characterized by love and compassion and always be willing to help where help is needed.   St. Augustine made the distinction between the secular (saeculum) and the religious (religio) to distinguish godless times from the age of Christianity.  This came to be the mark between the worldly life of believers, and the kind of life lived by the clergy.  Over time it was applied to worldly authority compared to the Word of God.  That latter view was embraced by William Penn in his view of a tolerant, pluralist government. 

John Locke put his confidence in an elected Parliament and the consent to be governed.  Penn and Locke believed in the primacy of the individual conscience and thought that Christian values would keep the secular government in check.  They believed that freedom of conscience and thought were the best weapons or vehicles to maintain a proper balance between the affairs of the church and the state. 

The followers of today’s ‘woke progressivism’ have abandoned those views and the idea of freedom of conscience means nothing to them.  They believe that they and their views are infallible and have a dangerous obsession with imposing their will and views on EVERYONE!  The modern toxic progressive is regressive expecting everyone to march to their drummer.

Throughout history, there have been Christian non-conformist, such as Martin Luther, who was excommunicated by the Roman Church on the charge of heresy.  What was his heresy?  He asserted that the believer was answerable to his or her own conscience.  His views were drawing much too large a following for the church to allow him to continue.  Luther and his followers were called Protestants because they protested.

It is possible that some of the more moderate ‘woke progressives’ may realize that their views are unattainable and modify them. They will be attacked by their own ideological adherents but that may allow them to survive with a measure of influence going forward.  However, I believe that the main body of woke progressivism will implode because those within will realize as will those without that their utopian world is unattainable.  Sadly, the total destruction of the Republic may have become a reality by the time that happens.

This group dominates the political, intellectual, social, and cultural elites of the Western world.  They are pursuing a totalitarian agenda and I suspect that the globalist using them as useful idiots will tire with their demands when they exceed the willingness of the elitists to enact their demands. 

What I believe is coming is an awakening of the masses to the unattainability of utopianism being advanced.  I believe that the ordinary people of our nation and much of the world will tire of being imprisoned by fear and the edicts of the ‘woke progressives’ who are arming their politically correct police forces.  If you wound an animal and back it into the corner it will become willing to fight for survival and what was once a docile creature will become a force to be reckoned with.  What I see is a revolt from many sides and some incredibly strange alliances will be formed.  When that happens the promoters of today’s ‘woke progressivism’ will find themselves with enemies on all sides and implode.

Extremism in any camp has a limited shelf life.  The sad thing is, although I see this movement imploding, I am not certain that the Free Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America can survive until that happens.  Therefore, I believe that it is mandatory that all believers, patriots, lovers of freedom, conservatives, and constitutionalists find a way to band together and become a formidable voting block and influence-wielding coalition committed and powerful enough to get the attention of the elected.  If we do not, we will lose the Republic.  If we do, we may salvage it in a form capable of being restored.

If we do not return to God and to intercession we will watch our beloved nation become an astrisk in the annals of human history.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE POWER OF POLITICAL OLIGARCHIES and PARTIES…


The American Oligarchy, Swamp, Deep State, or whatever you want to call it is incredibly powerful, far-reaching, and deeply entwined in everything government.  It may be beyond dismantling, short of a full-blown revolution and a total restructuring of our system of government.  I do not want a revolution.  I want a return to our Constitutional System of Representative Government identified in the term “Republic.”  I want what we were established to be.  I want a return to the governance, vision, and oversight desired and designed by the Founding Fathers.  I want what is repulsive to the Oligarchs, Woke Crowd, the Politically Correct, Globalist, and Statist of today’s politicized America.

If you were able to interview all Americans, you would discover that interspersed in our great republic people who have experienced the tyranny of despotic rulers, first-hand.  They fled those nations to seek a better life in a Free Country where Republicanism was the Constitutionally mandated form of government.  They would express, I am certain, their horror at the direction of today’s America and the would-be Oligarchs.

I have spoken to some who lived under the tyrannical regimes of various communist nations and they are bewildered at the insanity and in their words, the stupidity of many Americans today.  They are shocked and even angered as they watch the oblivious, self-absorbed, puerile wannabe autocrats in the political establishment drive their agenda to impose one-party dictatorial rule.  They know the dysfunctionality of that approach as well as the dangers.  They wonder how we, who have enjoyed the greatest of freedoms would so willingly relinquish our freedoms for freebies.  They wonder, but we are where we are, and it is on the edge of the precipice of destruction.

I, along with many far more informed, have watched the coup in our educational system and the multi-generations indoctrinated and, in a measure, brain-washed by the liberal diatribe and rhetoric.  History reveals the fallacy of the growing number of self-styled intellectuals and social elites thinking their brand of Socialism, Totalitarianism, and Globalism will be different from Europe’s failed attempts.  Their narcissistic gullibility and driving need to feel superior to us common folks make them easily manipulated by the unseen powers offering power, prestige, and control. 

I ran across something that George Orwell wrote five years before the publication of his seminal work “1984”.  He wrote, “There is this fact that the intellectuals are more totalitarian in outlook than the common people.  On the whole, the English intelligentsia have opposed Hitler, but at the price of accepting Stalin.  Most of them are perfectly ready for dictatorial methods, secret police, systemic falsification of history, etc. as long as they feel it is on ‘our’ side.”  Isn’t that interesting and insightful?

The belief that the ‘end justifies the means’ is in full flower in the Democratic Party and much of the Political Establishment of today.  They are supposedly knowledgeable and wise, but demonstrate a severe lack of educated enlightenment regarding history.  They believe they are superior to the average citizen and that we are too feeble-minded and ill-equipped to govern ourselves or make individual decisions for our families.  They fear people who think, and they appear completely incapable of generating an original thought and parrot the diatribe of Leftists dating back to the Fabian Socialists of well over 100 years prior.

The latest push of the Democratic Party and those of the Establishment on both sides of the political aisle is a “One Party Political System.”  The rulers want to rule, and we are deemed to be their serfs and should be grateful for the crumbs from their table.  History is replete with examples of nations that embraced “One Party Rule” and the abject failure and harm to the citizenry.

If we examine history, we find examples in Germany, Italy, modern Russia, and China.  Those should provide adequate warning to cause every freedom-loving person to stand firm against this proposed path of politics.  The unmistakable devastation physically and financially of WW I opened the door for the despots to arise.  History reveals that WW II swung wide the door for China to embrace Mao Zedong’s solidification of his ruling party’s supremacy and squashing all opposition.  What he did is what Big Tech and the Democrats are striving for today. 

It is more than a little disconcerting that in modern America, a nation not reeling from the chaos and destruction of a World War is willingly embracing the advances of the Oligarchs and Totalitarians.  America is the only country in the annals of mankind to sanction as an inalienable right the unrestricted right of the populace to ‘keep and bear arms’ as a bulwark against an oppressive centralized government.  Our Founders and Framers understood history and knew that power vested in the hands of a few could morph into totalitarianism.  They insisted that we have the right to defend ourselves.

I don’t know if the runaway train of destruction being advanced by the Socialist, Totalitarian Oligarchs of the Left will meet opposition sufficient to stop it or not.  I know that before long, under the current administration and the revealed agenda everyone will suffer.  Everyone that is, except the elitists who are in power and in bed with those in power.  Those in the loop may escape the devastation but the average citizen no matter their political position will soon face the crunch of the lunacy.  Will that be sufficient to cause an uprising?  I do not know but I do know the pain is going to be felt by most very soon.

The walls and National Guard in Washington, the open borders, the war on fossil fuels, the political correctness of the woke crowd, and the so-called ‘equality acts’ that are anything but designed for equality for all are beyond dangerous.  The only way they can enact their agenda is to transform American into a one-party system politically.  That is either through fraud, gerrymandering, manipulation, increasing the voting base via illegal immigrants, or collusion between the two major party establishments. 

It is necessary that we the people, become engaged, unified, and mobilized to not just win battles but permanently dispatch the megalomaniacs seeking total control.  If we do not resist their push to transform America into a One-Party Oligarchy, we will witness the loss of ALL our Freedoms and Liberties not just some of them.  We must become involved on the local level, the regional level, the state level, and the national level.  This is not a top-down fight but a bottom-up one.  We have to stop allowing the media and politicians to elicit knee-jerk emotional responses from us and consider the long-term overall issues, dangers, and needs of the nation.  Policies that are destructive long-term must be resisted and politicians advancing them must be dispatched.

If we are not willing to fight and even die for our Freedom and our Republic, we will lose it.  The Spirit of 1776 must be rekindled.  The Spirit of Obedience to God and Morality must be restored. I am not calling for armed insurrection or revolt, but I am calling for everyone to become committed to the cause of restoring America and keeping her the Free Constitutional Republic we were given in the late 1700s.  If we are not willing to risk, it all to save the Republic posterity will live under the tyrannical despotism of a One-Party All-Powerful Central Government.  I cannot live with rendering my children and grandchildren to suffer that fate.  Therefore, I stand for Liberty, and with the spirit of Patrick Henry and our Founders I say, “Give me liberty, or I might as well die.”

God bless you and God bless America!

AMERICA’S ILLNESS IS IT TERMINAL?


Yes, I said terminal illness, and that will not be received well by some, but it is what I see and hear in my heart of hearts.  The terminality of which I speak does not mean that America cannot be healed and revived.  Rather, it means that America cannot and will not survive if we continue the path we are on. 

I have spoken for many years on some things that could cause America to exit the stage of World Superpower and become more of a follower nation than a leader.  Again, I am bullish on America and patriotic to my core, so don’t assume that I am folding my tent and washing my hands of this Republic.  I will fight for her as long as I draw breath.  That is an absolute!  Yet, I see the signs of terminal illness in our nation. 

When a nation abandons God’s Word, His Righteousness, and Holiness you get what we are seeing in America today.  The sacrifices to our modern Baal in abortion reveal a moral breakdown that produces death, not life.  The political correctness, the woke mentality, the cancel culture, the insistence on ethnic wars, and the assault on the Bible, Christianity, the home, and marriage reflects a mental, moral, and spiritual condition that can only lead to decline, declension, and judgment.

The endorsement by this administration regarding biological males competing in women’s sports is not an example of inclusiveness but the expulsion of reason and sanity.  It is an affront to the Bible and God Himself.  It is reflective of a condition of heart and mind that dates back to the fall of Lucifer from Heaven and the repeated failures of man throughout history. 

We are witnessing a purge in our military and the prime targets seems to be skin color and political ideology.  No, it is not an assault on minorities but a demand that all white males acknowledge the fallacious and fictitious white privilege.  The push in the business world, education, the military, and even in the church for those whose skin pigmentation identifies them as Caucasian to fall on their faces in repentance at the altar of Woke-ness and Political Correctness.  It includes the idea of reparation for some sin of someone in the past by anyone resembling those who committed those sins.  That speaks of an illness that can only lead to destruction thereby qualifying to be deemed terminal.

Who do I blame for the condition that exists?  I do not lay the blame at the feet of the politicians, although they are blameworthy.  The pursuit of their ideological agendas and the quest for power is inherent in the beast.  It is who they are, so we should not be surprised when they violate the constitution and our wishes in the pursuit of their inclusion in the pinnacle of power.

I do not blame the activist, although they are worthy of their share of the blame.  However, like the politicians, they are blinded by their rabid ideological positions and driven to destroy everything that does not align with their belief.  It seems they truly believe they are right and everyone else is wrong and therefore have a mandate to vilify and destroy everything and everyone who opposes them.  I do not justify their antics or activities, but insist they are not the reason for our condition.

I do not blame the anti-religious, the atheist, the agnostics, and those who do not follow, believe or accept the precepts of the Bible.  They are assuredly part of the problem and share the blame, but they are not the reason for our decline.  They have perpetuated it and enhanced it, but they are a symptom, not the root cause.

Who do I blame?  I blame the followers of the Bible, the preachers, the prophets, and those who identify as Christians.  Yes, that includes me, for I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, believe the Bible IS the word of God and inspired, and have preached the gospel for over 50 years.  How, is it our fault that we are in the condition we are in?  How can I blame the followers of the Judeo-Christian faith for our terminal condition?

I say it because we slumbered and took the easy road when we should have been watchmen on the walls and sounding the alarm.  We allowed the educational system to be hijacked by ideological activists. Those who were not advocates of moral rightness, the constitution, our American system of Republican Representative Government, and the Free Market.  We allowed politicians to strip us of our liberties, infringe upon our inalienable rights, and impose restrictions on matters of morality and religion beyond their legal, moral, and constitutional boundaries.  We sat in silence, fat, happy, unaffected, and lazy and they stole our nation.

We adopted the mistaken idea that our Founders and the Framers of the American Constitution wanted everything of God, Religion, and the Church removed from Government.  The phrase, ‘separation of church and state’ became the guide, and many preachers and churches were either silenced either by belief or intimidation and the foxes were allowed to guard and ravage the hen house – America! 

We became complacent and some were more concerned with the identity of the ‘Man of Sin’ (Antichrist) than the ‘Sin of Man’, (Condition of Hearts).  Some adopted the view that faith was personal, and our lives were compartmentalized.  We have our religious lives, our home lives, our business lives, and our political lives.  I’ve said many times, “We are not cats, we do not have nine lives – WE HAVE A LIFE!  All the facets of our lives reflect who we are.

America is in a dire state today and if we continue in the direction we are headed we will soon see an economic collapse that will remove America from the world stage as a superpower.  With over $28 Trillion in debt not to mention the unsecured debt in the $100s of Trillions, our condition is terminal.  This administration has suggested stimulus checks for people on death row without family.  That is beyond nonsensical, it is diabolical.  Money does not grow on trees and we are insanely spending money we do not have to fix a problem that spending has caused.

The draconian and tyrannical actions of some political figures during the pandemic have revealed the fragile nature of our freedoms.  The alarming silence and willing compliance of the public reveal the fruit of the labors of decades in brainwashing and reeducating the masses.  That suggests the existence of a disease or condition that is terminal.  I hesitate to go to great length but feel I must mention a few things that could easily render America an afterthought on the world stage.

If we were to have a massive war and with the current purge and revamping of our military, we might not survive an assault.  An EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) would render America or any nation defenseless in a great measure.  The aforementioned economic collapse would render us incapable of contending or competing on the world stage and propel us to the back burner on the stove of world economics and power. 

The Scottish historian and professor Alexander Tytler wrote in 1787: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse [generous gifts] from the public treasury.  From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years.  These nations have progressed through this sequence:  Bondage to Spiritual Faith > Spiritual Faith to Great Courage> Courage to Liberty > Liberty to Abundance > Abundance to Complacency > Complacency to Apathy > Apathy to Dependence > and Dependence back into Bondage.” 

Another, I would be remiss if I did not include some predictions that came in various forms in letters and writings to Jefferson and others:  “Your Republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians not from without but from within your own institutions.” 

A moral collapse demands divine judgment and judgment is not always direct as with Sodom and Gomorrah it can be indirect.  That would be the removal of God’s protective hand and allowing the hordes to impose their will on society and render the nation powerless and ineffective.  I believe we are headed in that direction if we are not already there.

I also believe that America can be revived and although we may not be a major player in the end times as a superpower we can be a superpower spiritually and impact the world for the Kingdom of God and thereby see multitudes preserved and rescued from earthly and eternal destruction. 

The views I have expressed are mine and I believe they are birthed from what I am hearing in my spirit.  I have much more to say but have gone too long now.  I pray that you will join me and multitudes like me in intercessory prayer.  Believers and lovers of Freedom let’s accept our responsibility for the condition, repent, and become involved in restoration not just in politics and name-calling.

God bless you and God bless America!
