WHAT IS SUCCESS?    


That may sound like a foolish question and one so obvious that anyone could define it and understand it with ease.  However, defining success is like most things in life, something that means different things to different people.  I think most would agree, that success is in achieving our objective, whatever that might be.  Success, for some, is possessions, position, pleasure, and things material.  But the question remains, “What is Success?”

When it comes to the current administration, how do we define success?  Their rhetoric diatribe and spin are that Biden is Building America Back Better.  Their talking points insist that the economy is better, border security is better, national defense is better, education is better, and on and on.   Their definition is that whatever the Leftists do is a catalyst for America’s success and everything the Right does is anathema to our Republic. 

If I look at what is happening based on facts, real statistical data, inflation, national security, and the situation on our southern border my definition differs greatly from theirs.  If I consider what is happening in our educational system, political correctness, energy, and our international standing, my definition differs greatly from theirs. 

I contend that this administration has failed in virtually every issue facing America and Americans.  That would include crime, race relations, immigration, national security, energy, the economy, and regulatory controls.  I dare not omit the overt attempts to throttle free speech for anyone disagreeing with their rhetoric, diatribe, and spin.  They, on the other hand, would call those successes. 

Thus, the question surfaces once more, “What is Success?”  I am not Diogenes searching for “one honest man or politician” but an American seeking the truth.  Pilate’s question to Jesus is fitting, “What is Truth?”  In his 1957 lecture on communication, John Gage asked, “Why must we search for the Truth?  Why don’t we have it?”  I have been asking that question of politicians for as long as I have been able to be involved and vote. 

The line Jack Nicholson spoke in the movie A Few Good Men echoes today, “You can’t handle the truth!”  I asked a politician about an issue and was told, “You need to just let us handle this, you don’t know enough to even ask the right questions.”  I asked, “Then, what is the right question?”  He said, “You people just need to let us handle things, we know more and know better than you what needs to be done.”  I said, “That’s how we got in this mess,” and our conversation was over.

As an American who tries to be abreast of current issues, studies history, and believes in God and the Bible, I believe we have the truth but are blinded by bias and personal agendas.  Politicians, like most people, will reveal their true intent and colors, when they think they are safe.  Sometimes, politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer let their mouths overload their behinds and reveal more than they intended.  They do so when they think we have been hoodwinked and their secrets are sufficiently hidden.

We live in a world that has largely rejected absolute truth and prefers that its version of the truth take preeminence over facts.  I believe that much of the transition away from Transcendent Truth has been due to decades of mind-numbing educational revisionism and atheistic teaching as well as much of the church trying to be more like the world to attract the world.  Both have proven detrimental to holding to absolutes and transcendent truth.

The only way to connect to transcendent truth is through faith.  It is the God-oriented doctrine of our origins and life itself that enables us to exercise the faith needed to receive and adhere to absolute truth.  The moral fiber of our world has deteriorated dramatically in the past 50-plus years and today many feel that all that is needed is to be as good as the next person and not do a lot of bad things.  A life-altering connection to God through salvation is tossed aside. 

Just saying we are something does not make it so.  I believe that for us to be successful in turning the Republic around and restoring moral sanity and constitutional integrity we must reclaim education.  The idea that a kindergarten child is capable of deciding their sexual orientation is beyond insane.  That child barely knows the difference between a boy and a girl and certainly does not have the mental capacity or maturity to understand anything about sexual orientation.  Behavior is learned and if the groomers are allowed to succeed in producing a generation or two of confused children, we will have confused adults running the world.  That is not success, it is destruction.

One of the greatest failures in our world today is the inability or refusal of all sides to listen to any opposing view.  That is not relegated to the followers of toxic liberalism, globalism, and progressivism, it is also found in conservatives and even Christians.   I believe that none of us have a corner on the truth.  I believe that all of us have flaws in our logic, missing links in our theology, and sometimes allowing our personal biases and preferences to isolate us.  If everything is us against them and tit for tat, we will never see the America our founders established again.  That ship will have sailed forever.

Many waste valuable time arguing over their version of the truth and insist it is the only real truth or the best truth.  Sadly, unscrupulous politicians and people always take advantage of division.  Confusion and chaos are the friends of the tyrant seeking to enslave people.  The more divided people become, and the more chaos is present the easier it is for the would-be lord and master to offer their version of utopia and in the pretense that it is for the best good, bring out the chains.

Seventeenth-century French philosopher and mathematician Blaise Pascal whose religious conversion led him into a life of asceticism.  Out of his pursuit of thought came the Pensées which is a collection of fragments written and spoken by him.  His view of the best ‘version of the truth’ is one that unites Earth and Heaven and restores full access to the Source of our Being.  It is the truth that enables one to become a forever resident and practicing participant in unadulterated Christianity.  It draws all conclusions from the Source rather than attempting to meld God and Truth into our desired view.

Is Joe Biden’s administration a success?  That would be ‘yes’ and ‘no.’  It is yes if the objective is the fundamental transformation of the Republic and the reinterpretation of the Constitution to suit the Leftists’ agenda.  It would be yes if open borders, gender blending, and governmental interpretation of truth are the objective.  It is a resounding NO if you are a Christian and/or a Constitutionalist. 

Our economy is in shambles, inflation is out of control, border security is non-existent, cronyism is rampant, and the weaponization of our intelligence, law enforcement, and the IRS is real.  If that is the goal, then they are extraordinarily successful.  If everyone is viewed as equal under the Law, protecting the defenseless and innocent is the aim, then they are abject failures.  If racial discord is the desired target, then they are astoundingly successful.  If making everyone dependent on the benevolent government, then they have attained a measure of success.  If indoctrination of the gullible, modification of the children, and bribery to buy votes is the objective, then the word is successful.  If it is not, the failure is more apropos.

Our Founding Fathers viewed success from a governmental position to be one where the federal government was limited, and the people were allowed to follow their dreams unimpeded by overreaching mandates and regulations.  They believed that those within individual states should have the autonomy to determine how their state was run.  The federal government was extremely limited.  Today, the opposite seems to be more accurate. Therefore, I believe the view of the Founders would be that today’s American Government is a Failure!

God bless you and God bless America!

THE ART OF WAR…


In this blog, I will mention COVID-19 a number of times.  I hope you realize that is only one example of what is transpiring, manufactured, and hurled our way.  It is the tip of the iceberg.  If you do not believe that much if not most of what is happening is manmade and manufactured, hopefully, you realize that it is being belched out of the depths of hell and the demonic realm.  If you do not believe in hell, the devil, or hell, surely you, at least, recognize that evil is becoming more prevalent in today’s world and those seeking total power and control or astute in the “Art of War.”

Most have heard of the military text written by China’s Sun Tzu called “The Art of War.”  It is compelling and revealing in light of many things happening in today’s world.  It is germane to the situation in the world today where we have watched tyrannical actions for the past 18 months.  The pandemic called COVID-19 placed the entire world in a virtual prison via fear and governmental mandates mistakenly called laws.  Now, the continuing plagues and problems build on those fears.

I am convinced that God allows things to transpire as a visual of what is coming and what is coming is exponentially worse than the Coronavirus and concerns over the vaccines and boosters.  The next round, if they feel they have failed to achieve their objectives of control and suppression of our inalienable rights will be deadly beyond words.  It will likely be the catalyst that paves the way for the Man of Sin to rise to prominence.

Tzu said, “He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.”  He suggested that armies should never engage in combat unless they have a clear advantage.  He suggested that it is never wise to spread your forces too thin and maintain your base of power.  I believe that is a strategy those who desire the fundamental transformation of America and the world have been using for over one hundred years.  They pick their battles and in so doing create a deception that they are losing when they are strategizing for the next and more winnable battle.

Tzu contended that timing was of the utmost importance.  He said, “The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.”  I call to remember the words of Obama’s former adviser during an interview in 2008 on ABC’s This Week said, “Never allow a crisis to go to waste.  And by that, I mean that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”  He has reprised that regarding the coronavirus pandemic and said, “Plan for the future.”  He was focused on the economic collapse of our country.  Strategize to take over!

Tzu also argued that “All warfare is based on deception.”  I believe that is readily applied to what has been happening in the present pandemic.  I am not suggesting that COVID-19 Monkey Pox or any of the things we face are not real, They are!  I am suggesting that there is much deception regarding the origin and the effectiveness of the prescribed path to recovery.  The fact that the medical and scientific communities disagree among themselves is cause for concern.  From the beginning, I have asked, “What is it about this we have not been told?” 

The ease with which the panic and pandemonium resulted in fear driving otherwise sensible people to completely surrender their rights was astounding.  I am more convinced than ever that they are following Tzu’s strategy of Disguising Their Plans.  He said, “When able to attack, we must seem unable, when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”  Deception is the age-old tactic of Lucifer, and he is a master at it.  If one-third of the angels followed him although they stood daily in the presence of God, he must be masterful.

We have watched as manipulation and deception akin to a magician’s sleight of hand distracts what he is doing and then he surprises with his seeming magic.  Tzu said, “To win 100 battles is not the height of skill, to subdue the enemy without fighting is.”  We have watched the disruption of the economy, civil unrest, riots, mayhem, shortages, and fanning the flames of hate and fear rise since 2016.  A strategy to win in 2020 and then to gain ultimate control through deception and without endangering themselves in the process. They used useful idiots to do their dirty work.

Those desiring to destroy our Constitutional Republic and gain total control of America and the world are using Tzu’s tactic of Chaos.  He said, “In the midst of chaos, there is opportunity.”  That is what Rahm Emanuel was referring to in his “Never let a crisis go to waste.”  We have seen the chaos since 2016 with rioting, looting, and murder and I believe it is going to get worse!  We have seen the escalation of the Political Correctness, Critical Race Theory, Cancel Culture, and Revisionist in History used to create a mindset that is open to government intervention.  That would be a colossal mistake for our Republic.

As the haters of our Constitutional Freedoms and Liberties where ‘We The People’ are the owners and overseers of government with the power to fire politicians at the voting booth win a battle, they become more emboldened.  Tzu said, “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.”  The more the Constitutionalists, Conservatives, Republicans, and Christians back off and allow the Leftists Marxists Globalists to win battles they press forward with more urgency.  We have for too long allowed ourselves to be silenced out of fear of being labeled negatively.  I do not care what they call me, I Stand for the Constitution and the Bible.  That is not hate, it is not bigotry, nor is it racist, it is sanity!

Tzu’s strategy included confusion, and destruction within, until conditions became unbearable and unmanageable.  They would allow those in power to propose agendas that were supposed to stabilize and return to normalcy.  The general public would become so distraught and fearful of ultimate destruction they would welcome austere government intervention up to and including martial law.  Then, the stabilizing and normalcy achieved would be the Total Control by those in power.  Freedom would be lost forever without an armed rebellion, which by that time would be a virtual impossibility because of the confiscations.

In Revelation 6 we have the First Seal opened.  I do not believe what we have been experiencing is that event but what has been happening is a visual of what is coming.  It is a warning that God has allowed us to see to inspire us to return to Him rather than surrendering to Fear and passively obey rather than follow His Word and Spirit.

The White Horse Rider is not Jesus, but part of the destruction.  The White Horse Rider with a Crown on his head (symbol of authority) goes forth conquering and to conquer.  He has a bow in his hand is symbolic of an event that will become a reality.  I believe God has allowed us to see a visual through the pandemic of what is coming, and the next thing will be far more destructive and deadly.

The word ‘conquer’ in Greek means to carry off the victory, to win the case legally.  Fear, COVID, violence, and the other things we are being subjected to have literally conquered the world without firing a shot.  The word ‘bow’ in Greek is (taxon).  It might be a stretch but consider the word taxon comes from the root teko which is bear as to bring forth, produce, or give birth.  The Cambridge dictionary defines a toxin as a poisonous substance, especially one produced by bacteria.  The ancient Greek word toxikon means “poison arrow.”  A bow without arrows would be like a gun without bullets.

The Rider has a crown on his head and the word is ‘corona’ in Greek.  Coronavirus was so named because of the crown-like spikes on its surface.  A crown-like virus has poisoned the world and it is unlikely that we will ever return to the old normal.  The plan is to force us to adapt to a new normal. 

The ease with which people surrendered to the mandates without detailed information and adequate proof that what was demanded was necessary, beneficial, or good suggests that when the next event is released from hell, people will willingly comply.  That does not bode well for Freedom or the world. 

I am reminded of the words of Luke 21:26 – “people fainting from fear and expectation of the [dreadful] things coming on the world; for the [very] powers of the heavens will be shaken.”  Amplified.  We are in very dark times and the condition of people’s hearts has grown darker causing many to become fearful.  That brings to mind the words of the apostle Paul to Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:7 – “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and person discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind, and self-control].”  Amplified.

I choose to Trust God, not the Government.  I choose to believe in God’s keeping power, not a pathway prescribed by man that has proven does not work.  I will not live in fear.  I am not suggesting that you take or not take the vaccine.  I am suggesting that you seek God and study carefully the available data in making future decisions about anything.

We are in a war and Tzu’s ‘Art of War’ tactics are being employed visibly.  God bless you and God bless America. 

POTUS – The Office and the Person…


I have deep respect for the Office of President of the United States of America.  However, that respect for the office does not always translate well for the inclusion of the person occupying the office.  The President, no matter who he or she is, is a flawed vessel and we must never lose sight of that reality.  Yet, we have lowered the standard set by the Founding Fathers that the office itself is now tarnished by the election of people morally, ethically, and constitutionally challenged.

I confess I could not bring myself to watch the State of the Union Address in real time.  I know that I should have, so that I would hear, firsthand, what the sitting president and his party are saying.  However, I have read what he had to say and have seen some clips of his speech and I am flabbergasted as to how anyone could embrace this administration’s agenda.  Yet, I know that millions do, and I will possibly be attacked for my stance.

The speech was filled with outright lies and misrepresentations of the truth.  But, as we have witnessed in the past few years, the media tells us that what the Left says is the pristine truth and anything the Right says is evil and destructive.  That kind of biasness is not news it is propaganda. 

Joe Biden and his party are the epitome of a ‘tax and spend’ obsession.  He has dismal approval numbers according to the polls, even those that skew the numbers as favorably as possible for him.  Despite his downward spiral in the eyes of the American voters, he offers us nothing new, beneficial, or corrective to get us out of the funk he has created.  Mr. President, I do not want to hear about ‘electric cars’ and the New Green Deal when I am faced with the outrageous prices at the gas pump.  I want what we had not what we have because it did not have to be.

Mr. President, please stop the diatribe and tired rhetoric of blaming Climate Change for our shattered economy and everything else.  Also, stop blaming Trump for your actions and weakness.  Climate change, manmade or naturally cyclical is not our greatest national security threat, terrorism, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China are much greater.  Sir, I suggest that the policies of your administration and your part are the greatest internal threat we face.

I was not surprised and had to fight back anger when I read and heard his comments on abortion.  He keep insisting that abortion is about women’s health and their constitutional right to choose.  However, he and those of his ilk seem to be oblivious to the right of that baby in the womb to life.   Abortion is not an advancement of maternal care it is the destruction of a life that will never be lived.  It is robbing the most innocent of the human race of their unprotected right to live! 

Mr. President, how could you with any sense of seriousness tell us that you want to secure the border.  Every action you have taken decries that claim.  You have released a suspected terrorist who illegally entered the United States and allowed him to enter our homeland.  You seek to mandate that legal Americans be vaccinated but give a pass to the illegals entering our republic.  You ignore the criminals, the sick, and those coming here hoping to gain an anchor into our nation via childbirth.  Our educational system, our economy, and our healthcare are all taxed with your failed border policies. 

Mr. President, please stop saying you are a Unifier when you use vitriolic language against your opponents.  Please stop saying you are for Unity when you act and speak in ways that can only divide the Republic and intensify the strained racial tensions that are needlessly being rekindled today.

The energy crisis in America is yours and Americans should make you and your party own it.  The stopping of the life-flow of the Keystone pipeline and the suspension of all drilling on federal lands exacerbated the problem and it will only get worse.  You ended the sanctions that President Trump had placed on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany.  We continue to fill Russia’s coffers with American dollars via the need to import oil.  We went from energy independence and exportation of oil to energy-dependent with a great need for imported oil to keep us moving.

The false claim about supporting “made in America” was revolting based on his and members of his party’s enrichment via foreign sources.  Ukraine has long been the financial pipeline for the Biden and Clinton families.  The corrupt politicians in that nation and other nations provided a cash cow to our equally corrupt politicians.  I offer the words of Israelmore Ayivor – “You don’t necessarily need atomic bombs to destroy a nation.  Politicians who value their pockets more than the life of citizens always do that every day.”

Now Mr. Biden, “let’s not defund the police; let’s fund them.”  It was only a few short months ago that he and his Vice President along with a myriad of other Leftists were calling for “defunding the police.”  What changed?  Oh, I know, it is the plunging poll numbers and the upcoming mid-term elections.  After that election passes and if they still have control of the Congress, we will hear their previous rhetoric again.

He either does not know or care that inflation has caused the cost of goods and services to skyrocket.  He ignores our pain at the pump where we are paying 50% or more for gasoline to fuel our automobiles to enable us to live our lives.  America, if we do not strip their death grip on America by voting out enough Leftists so we can gain a supermajority in Congress we are in deep deep trouble.

I don’t know if you were party to the Russian invasion of Ukraine other than due to your weakness, but you are following Rahm Emmanuel’s counsel to “never let a crisis go to waste.”  You are following Bill Clinton’s ‘wag the dog’ objective and attempting to rebrand yourself as a wartime president.  I hope the voters are not that blind.

How can you offer such diatribe and balderdash as to say, “we prepared extensively and carefully” regarding Ukraine?”  Seriously?  You did absolutely nothing to stop the attack and watched as European leaders negotiated with Putin while you were conspicuously absent.  More ‘leading from behind’ as your former boss did when he was in office, and you served as his second. 

I long for the days when the office of POTUS will be restored to the pinnacle of respect that it deserves.  Sadly, when inept, corrupt, and even evil people occupy that office, roam the halls of Congress, and sit on the court bench we will watch it deteriorate even further. 

We can have what our Founders envisioned and established but only if we follow their counsel and follow the directives of men such as George Washington.  He said, “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.”  We must return to God individually and collectively if we hope to save our nation.”

You may agree or disagree with my observation and opinion, that is your Constitutional and God-given right.  I defend your right to disagree and to challenge me.  However, I ask that you examine the facts and ask yourself, “Are you better off now than you were during the four years of Donald Trump?” 

God bless you and God bless America!

THE MYTH – SQUEAKY-CLEAN POLITICIANS…


Well, Barack Hussein Obama and Joe Robinette Biden, Jr., as well as Hillary Rodham Clinton and William Jefferson all, told us they were squeaky-clean, honest, and transparent politicians.  If you believe them, I would like to offer you a deal on some prime oceanfront property in the middle of Arizona.  I will even through in some green cheese from the moon’s surface, a unicorn, and a flying pig.  That’s as believable as their assertions and maybe more so.

The Biden family appears to be owned by China and other devious and corrupt countries.  Peter Schweizer a Breitbart News contributor has released information that has been corroborated by Hunter Biden’s business partner and other sources.  The information indicates that the Biden Family or Syndicate received at least $31 million from individuals closely linked to the highest levels of Chinese Intelligence. 

That money was received when Joe Biden was Vice President under Barack Obama and has continued while he has been sitting as President of the United States of America.  I do believe that is a violation of the law and should bring the question of treason into the equation.  It won’t, but it should! 

One of the players was a man named, Che Feng whom Hunter refers to as the Super Chairman.  Hunter said, “I don’t believe in the lottery anymore, but I believe in the Super Chairman.”  His business partner was the Vice Minister for state security in China.  Whoa Nellie that smells of corruption and the selling of American secrets is not out of the question.  Feng helped Hunter secure a $20 million deal. 

Another player is Mr. Zhao who helped with that deal and also sent Hunter $5 million from a business called Harvest Global.  That is a very interesting and suspicious name considering China’s continued cyber intelligence gathering.  To make it more dangerous and devious, the Vice Minister’s job in China was to oversee the entire Chinese spy apparatus. 

Some have wondered about Biden’s throwing Ukraine to the dogs and under the bus in this Russian imbroglio.  I think I may have stumbled on at least one reason for his actions other than ineptitude.  Sam Nunberg, privy to information on the highest levels under Trump has suggested that Biden gave Putin a green light with Ukraine for spite or payback for Ukraine cutting off Hunter’s cash cow.

Ukrainian energy company Burisma stopped bribing him after the 2016 election of former President Donald Trump.  The cash flow stopped but not the thirst for vengeance and payback by the Bidens.  If you recall, Hunter was paid the handsome sum of $80,000 per month to simply sit on the board.  What Fortune 500 Company pays that per month for board members? 

If you recall, the Mainstream Media won’t tell you, that Joe Biden bragged as Vice President that he was solely responsible for getting the investigator fired who was examining the bribery allegations involving Hunter.  First, they cut Hunter’s fee in half and then cut him off completely.  How dare anyone stop the flow of illicit cash to the Biden’s or any politician?  That is anathema and if given the opportunity the sullied politician will retaliate. 

President Trump strengthened NATO and approved the sale of heavy arms to Ukraine while he was in office.  Biden has reversed course and offers them tokens and blankets not protection against aggression.  He was supposed to help Europe stop Putin’s Nord Stream pipeline but instead, he wrapped it in a package and handed it to Putin free of charge.  Biden’s actions regarding Ukraine will likely embolden China in its pursuit of Taiwan.  Who would expect Biden to take a hard line against China?  I don’t see any hands.

Next, we have to wonder about the motive of the Biden administration to save Iran’s seat in the United Nations General Assembly for non-payment of dues.  Biden arranged funds to cover the debt and keep Iran securely in the UN and voting.  Why would you do that?  Why, unless you see them as an ally in the destruction of the United States of America as the Free Constitutional Republic? 

In less than two weeks the Biden team arranged for $18 million blocked Iranian funds to be released.  Wow!  Maybe the motivation is to create a wag the dog situation with a war in the Middle East and divert attention from America’s economic woes and soaring inflation.  William Jefferson Clinton was a master at that tactic and Biden’s team is not oblivious of the results.  After all, it was Obama’s own Rahm Emanuel who said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste.”  Everything is political and nothing is about the best good of America and Americans. 

Let me irritate some who hate Trump with a passion.  What would have been the response in the Media, Washington, Hollywood, and on the Internet if President Trump had bailed out an avowed foe as did Biden with Iran?  It would have taken less than a day for the articles of impeachment to have been drafted and presented and probably not much longer for the vote to have passed the House of Representatives.  Frankly, I would agree with the move if he had done that.

Let’s take that a step further and include the Ukraine and Russia situation.  If Trump had greenlighted Russia as Biden has, the howls of corruption and collusion would echo in the Halls of Congress, and immediately the articles of impeachment would have been forthcoming.  

Of course, Biden took a hard line, according to the pundits when he said, “If Russian were to invade, they would be “held accountable.”  I’m sure Putin is shaking in his boots.  Then Biden watered down that stance saying, “It depends on what it does.  It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and then we end up having a fight about what to do and not do, et cetera.” 

How can a sitting President provide intelligence to an adversary as Biden did when he clearly informed Putin that NATO was divided about how to respond to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.  He made it clear that Putin could do some things short of a full takeover and have a free pass.  In history, that kind of allowance leads to full dominance over time and Putin has time.

Since Russia imports gas from Ukraine Putin would be less likely to touch the supply route.  Not so anymore, because Biden handed him the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that liberates Russia to deal with Ukraine anyway, they please.  Thanks, President Biden you are making the world a much safer place and stemming the tide of oppression and aggression.  Don’t step in the Unicorn poop when you go in the backyard.

America, we have a disaster in the White House, and regardless of whether he is calling the shots or echoing what he is told it is destructive.  We must rectify the error in the subsequent elections.  Now is the time to begin vetting candidates to oust the RINOs and evict the Leftists.  We can do this if we band together and take our country back.

God bless you and God bless America!

WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR AMERICA TO AWAKEN?


I am serious in my inquiry as to what it will take for the sleeping giant of America to awaken and the people unite to resist tyranny?  How many liberties must be stripped from us?  How many usurpations of the Constitution must transpire?  How many mandates and regulations must be issued?  Will we realize the danger we are in before or after we have been attacked by outside forces as we are disintegrating within?  What will it take?  I pray that we awaken before it is everlastingly too late!

I believe that the presidency of Joe Biden has weakened our standing in the world and made us incredibly vulnerable to our enemies.  I believe that his appeasement and milquetoast positioning of America is unimaginably dangerous for our Republic.  We have been transformed from being viewed as the protector of the weak in the world to being among the weak and growing weaker.  Our enemies do not fear us, and our friends are losing respect for us.  That is a dangerous condition and one all should be concerned about.

We are being reduced from the economic and military giant to a run-of-the-mill nation.  We have witnessed our energy independence disappear in just a few short months.  We are returning to energy servitude to nations that hate us and kowtowing to nations that chant “Death to America” viewing us as the great satan of the world.  That should give everyone pause and is a reason for concern.

We have experienced the metamorphosis from being the nation that defeated the evil regimes and agendas of Germany and Japan in World War II to one that would have difficulty defeating such an enemy today.  We have been transformed from being the nation and leadership that forced the demise of the Soviet Union and the tearing down of the Berlin wall to a nation that is laughed at and ignored by those forces that desire our demise.

We were warned by Nikita Khrushchev and other world leaders of Communist countries who predicted our demise.  I recently read an article citing the prediction of Historian Peter Turchin, a Russian defector who fled to the United States in 1978.  He has researched the records of 414 societies spanning millenniums from 30 regions of the world to uncover his predictions regarding America.

Turchin concluded that civil unrest will likely erupt and reach the shattering point of our society.  He classified 1,590 incidents – riots, lynching, and political events where at least one person was killed from 1780 to 2010 and identified 50-year cycles of peaks in brutality in 1870, 1920, 1970.  He has predicted that the worst-case scenario of an all-out civil war is likely.

He has predicted that we have passed the line of demarcation and will continue to plunge into disarray, and it will ultimately result in the demise of the Republic known as the United States of America.  Is he right?   I pray he is not!  But what will it take for America to awaken to our condition and plight?  What will it take for us to unite to resist the rise of tyranny and governmental oppression?

We have an enemy more dangerous than all the Islamic jihadists in the world and are ill-prepared to deal with that enemy.  We have two major enemies more dangerous than the rest.  The internal strife that has divided us, and the Republic of Communist China.  Couple that with adversaries such as Iran and Russia and we are on the precipice of danger unlike we have ever faced.  Will we wake up in time to prepare for an attack from outside our borders?  Will we return to sanity and restore our moral moorings in America?  I wish I could predict that we will, but I am only cautiously hopeful.  It is my faith in God that keeps me going not my confidence in the Government of the American populace.

China has amassed a vast military arsenal and is capable of putting a million boots on the ground or more at any time and anywhere.  With China flexing its muscle and rattling its sabers over Taiwan the Biden administration is ill-equipped to deal with it.  Biden and his family are indebted to China on so many fronts that any likelihood of his standing up to them is inconceivable. 

The Obama dismantling of our military and the purging of the ranks of senior officers of those who are more God-fearing, constitutionally oriented, and conservative does not bode well.  Trump tried to build up the military but was unable to replenish the ranks of senior and flag officers, therefore we have a very large contingent of Leftist Woke officers in the senior ranks of our military.

China has also transformed itself into an economic super-power or as one said, an “economic imperial giant.”  They are presently threatening to attack our forces in Taiwan and are determined to take over that nation.  They are making other inroads in the Atlantic and appear to be virtually in control of the Panama Canal.  Some would argue that they also control the Wall Street Journal and much of our federal government.  If that is accurate, we are up the proverbial creek without a paddle, and paddling by hand cannot prove successful. 

China is attempting to make inroads in Africa seeking a naval base in Equatorial Guinea further threatening our national security.  If this is successful with China’s economic might they will further corrupt the leaders of that poverty-stricken country and permit the Red Warships to sail freely in the Atlantic and rule the seas.

Vladimir Putin has amassed over 200,000 troops to invade Ukraine again and Biden is impotent to stop him other than issue meaningless and powerless threats of sanctions.  Putin knows Biden too well, having dealt with him and Obama watched the Obama administration’s reaction when the Russians took over Kiev.  What did they do?  They armed the Ukrainians with packaged food and warm blankets.  Nice way to stop aggression, right?

Add to that terrible condition the actions of Biden are allowing the Mullahs of the Islamic world to position themselves to rule the Middle East.  We have abandoned our only friend in the region, Israel, and alienated the more moderate nations.  God help us!

Thanks to Joe Biden and his administration we are once again dependent on foreign oil.  He is depleting our strategic oil reserves and destroying the Oil and Gas industries.  One has to wonder why Biden would support the Russian oil pipeline into Germany while shutting down our Keystone pipeline.  He is empowering Putin to rule Europe and China to rule Asia creating a condition worse than that of the World War II era.  When will America awaken?  Will America awaken?  Are we watching America be destroyed and destroyed at such a rapid pace that it is astounding?

I believe that Biden is suffering from diminished mental capacity, but his handlers are using the weak, incredibly ineffectual, and in my view, criminal president to further the Globalist agenda and made America incredibly weak and vulnerable.  I am not certain that even if we win super-majorities in 2022 there is time to stop this destruction.  Will the damage have been so severe that it is impossible to turn the tide?  I hope not, but my trepidation grows almost daily.

What do we do?  For me and my house, we are trusting God and have committed ourselves to prayer and fasting interceding for the Republic.  I am placing my all on the line to stand for Faith, Family, and Freedom.  I stand on 2 Chronicles 7:14 and call all believers to join me. 

God bless you and God bless America!

HOW MUCH DOES CHINA OWN IN AMERICA?


Some of us have been concerned for several years over the increased foreign ownership of land in the United States of America.  I can envision no scenario in which it is a good policy to allow foreign governments or foreign agents to own land, businesses, infrastructure, etc. in the United States of America.  I say that with emphasis when it comes to those who are clearly our adversaries, not our friends, such as China or Russia.  Yet, it continues to transpire and how much they own is not fully discernable but what we know is frightening.

The ownership of farmland by China is incredibly disconcerting to this American.  Farmland, the source of our food supply owned by China should cause the hair on the back of all American’s necks to stand on end.  If you cannot see the danger in that you are not thinking.  If they control the land, they control the supply, the price, and thereby have the power to cause starvation in the USA. 

Imagine an administration that is in bed with the Chinese government and what that would mean to America if China decided to do the abhorrent and reduce our food supply.  Wait, you don’t have to imagine it we have one today in the Biden administration.  An administration that seems to be owned by Xi and the Chinese along with his family.  Does that bode well for America and Americans? 

What we know and is open to public view is probably a drop in the bucket to reality.  But what we know is deeply disconcerting.  We have a sprinkling of U.S. lawmakers who have expressed concern over the increased Chinese purchases of American farmland.  They may be responding after the cows are out of the barn, but at least some of them are taking note.  Will they be able to do anything?  Not unless we gain a change in the presidency, Congress, and the courts. What I mean is, not unless we strip the power from the grips of the liberal leftist globalist and put it in the hands of those who will fight for America.

At the outset of 2020, Chinese investors owned a minimum of 192,000 acres of U.S. agricultural land valued at about $1.9 BILLION.  In 2018 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that China’s agricultural investments in other nations had grown more than tenfold.  That demands questions?  Why?  But the answer is so clear and threatening everyone should insist that the U.S. government implement laws to prevent it from happening in America before it is too late.

Surely everyone can see the danger in allowing China to control our food supply.  We are paying subsidies to foreign-owned land in the United States.  Seriously, we are paying them to destroy us!  How can anyone think that is a good idea?  Some states are taking action that imposes restrictions on foreign ownership of farmland, but it may be too little too late.  We are rapidly headed toward a Chinese-owned agricultural monopoly and if that happens, America is toast.

By doing a little more research in an effort to find some of the hidden portions of this iceberg I discovered that at least 30 million acres of American farmland are owned by foreign investors.  That is a portion of land roughly the size of Mississippi or Pennsylvania.  That is deeply disconcerting.

Six states currently have bans on foreign ownership of farmland:  Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, and Oklahoma.  Hey American States, including my home Texas, why haven’t you followed suit? 

It is not just farmland that China is purchasing but residential properties as well.  China owns more residential real estate than any other foreign country.  They have massive holdings on the West Coast and impact the real estate market.  They also have incredible influence over the American media and our national policies are being dictated by pro-China advocates and rhetoric.

The New York Times, for example, their largest shareholder Carlos Slim has close ties and business ventures with Chinese firms in the pocket of the Chinese government.  His Giant Motors have a vested interest in China’s JAC Motors engaged in penetrating the Latin American market with designs on the U.S. market.

The Washington Post (WaPo) under the ownership of Jeff Bezos and many of Amazon’s biggest-selling products such as Echo, and the Kindle are manufactured in China.  It is fiscally profitable for Bezos and the WaPo to back China even if it means losing our Republic.  The globalists are not concerned about the America of our Founders they are concerned about a globe filling their coffers and enhancing their power, control, and influence.

Cable News Network (CNN) is a property of WarnerMedia which is so closely tied to China it might as well be called Chinese News Network.  If you recall how CNN reacted to the Wuhan virus you can see what I’m suggesting.  Couple that with NBC, ABC, and Bloomberg, and you quickly realize how much influence China has in the American media.  Therefore, their propaganda is presented 24/7/365 and the followers of those media outlets drink the Kool-Aid and regurgitate the rhetoric.

China has long owned Hollywood and is seeking to control the content that America sees via the Big Screen, the television, and various social media platforms including TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

I am doubly concerned to learn that the Chinese are buying strategic land in Texas.  In 2020 they purchased over 100,000 acres in West Texas for what is deemed an economic project.  The U.S. Intelligence believes, as do I, that this is less economic and more intelligence gathering.  Interestingly, this land is framed by the pristine Devils River, the legendary Pecos River in West Texas borderlands of Val Verde County.

Beginning in 2015, GH America Investment Group has purchased over 130,000 acres of property in Val Verde County.  You will not be surprised to learn that GH America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Xinjiang-based Guanghui Industry Investment Group.  Must I remind everyone that Xinjiang is notorious for its so-called re-education camps, where China detains Uighur Muslims and other ethnic minorities against their wills and violates their human rights?  Why do they want in America?  Could that be a clue?

Pay attention to the fact that China emerged from the COVID-19 shock earlier than the rest of the world and is planning for the long term.  China outpaced the United States in attracting foreign direct investment for the first time in history. 

If America is loaded with corrupt politicians owned by China, where does that lead?  If the American Media is controlled by China and we are lambasted with pro-China rhetoric constantly, where does that lead?  If we continue the Big Tech censorship of anything regarding the agenda of the Leftists and the Globalists, where does that lead?  If American business continues to be undercut by Washington, where does that lead?  If our American culture and core values continue in the crosshairs of the Leftists and Washington, where does that lead?  It leads to the demise of America.

If we allow China to own us, we will find our liberty only a faint memory and our children’s children will become serfs to a foreign godless entity that will make their lives a living hell.  That will be the legacy we leave to our children.  I am not willing to quietly let that happen.

Therefore, I am committed to sounding the alarm and standing for Faith, Family, and Freedom!  Will you join the rest of us so committed?

God bless you and God bless America!

I CAN’T VOTE THE DEMOCRAT’S PLATFORM – – Here’s Why…


I have had people who are fellow believers in the Lord Jesus Christ ask why I say I can’t vote for the Democrats or the Democratic platform.  They often use arguments about the character or allegations against a Republican or Conservative in the race and compare apples to peas.  They talk about principle and contend that the Republicans are without compassion and the Democrats are the Party of the little man.  Sometimes they even attempt to use the Bible to defend their position.

This article will likely put me in hot water with the PC Police and will aggravate some to use the delete button on our Facebook friendship.  If that happens, it happens, but I believe in Freedom of Speech.  I believe the Bible.  I believe in God.  I believe that some things are so glaringly anti my core foundational convictions that I must address them.

I am going to list a few items that prevent me from voting for the Democrats because of their Party Platform.  Even if the individual Democrat in the race appears to hold many of the views and convictions I hold, their national platform and the history of Democrats voting in Congress precludes me from pulling the lever for that candidate.  Overall, the Republican Party’s national platform has more closely aligned with my views than the Democrats.  At this juncture, there is no viable alternative to the two main political parties.  Will that change?  Time will tell.

First, the matter of Life is probably the number one issue on my list.  I believe in Life!  I believe in the declarations of the Bible regarding life, and I believe in the principles espoused in the Declaration of Independence.  I believe the objective of the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Abortion is a deal-breaker for me!  If a Party or Candidate supports abortion, no matter which side of the aisle they identify with, I cannot vote for that candidate.  I would be in a dilemma were both the Democrat and Republican in a race embraced the Pro-Choice view and the modern view of post-birth abortion, I would either not vote or write in a candidate’s name.  I could not with good conscience vote for either of them.

I believe that birth begins, at a minimum, at conception.  I go to Psalm 139 as my first reference. In Psalm 139:13-16, we read, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful,    I know that full well.15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  You may not accept God’s view, but it is my cornerstone.

When I turn to science and medicine, I find things so amazing and disturbing regarding the development of that infant in the womb, that the thought of abortion makes my skin crawl and I cringe.  It is a horrifying thought to slaughter that innocent, unborn, life before it has the opportunity to experience life on earth. 

Around two weeks after fertilization, it is documented that the baby’s first completed brain cells appear.  At three weeks the pre-born child’s heart is in an advanced stage of formation.  How does anyone refer to that being in the womb as a blob of tissue?  At about 24 days the heart begins to beat.  A heartbeat and yet it is not recognized as a human being, a living creature in the womb?  How can that be?

At 4 weeks the muscles are developing with arm and leg buds are visible and the first neocortical cells appear.  The neocortex is the seat of complex thinking and reasoning, a feature not present, in any other mammal.  At 5 weeks the pituitary gland is forming and at 6 weeks the baby’s heart energy output is 20% of an adult’s.  The cartilage skeleton is completely formed, and bone formation begins.

At 43 days, the baby’s brain waves can be recorded.  Yet, the Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion crowd still refuses to recognize this as a life.  Just a few days following that infant in the womb begins spontaneous and voluntary body movements.  At 7 weeks the lips of that preborn child are sensitive to touch, and his/her ears resemble his family’s pattern.  At 8 weeks all organs are present, complete, and functioning, except the lungs.  The heart beats marvelously, the stomach produces digestive juices, the liver makes blood cells, and the kidneys are functioning.  How is that not a living being, a LIFE?

By the end of the first trimester (12 weeks, the point where most surgical abortions are done) the baby in the womb has demonstrated distinct personality traits.  Sleep patterns differ, some hiccup constantly, others may cry.  How is that not a living being? 

There is much more but I won’t try to give a full breakdown of the month to month or week by week in the development of that life in the womb but hope that demonstrates that that thing you call a fetus, or a blob of tissue is a LIFE, a Living Human in the womb.  If God judged the nation of Israel for sacrificing thousands of babies to Baal, how can He not judge us when we have sacrificed Millions to the God of Choice or Self?

Since there is little space to list the numerous other items that prevent me from voting for the Democrats, I will list some without discussion.  I believe that God made two genders, Male and Female.  I could refer to many passages, but I give you the first in the Bible, Genesis 1:27 – “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” 

The idea of a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body would be to insist that God made a mistake in creating us.  I do not believe that and cannot endorse that practice of self-identifying as something other than what your chromosomes and physical features reveal you to be. 

God calls homosexuality an abomination.  I know that I’m not supposed to say that but when both the Old and New Testaments confirm God’s view of the practice as being unacceptable and sinful, how can I endorse it.  If God says something, I am not afraid to take a stand in agreement with His word.  Let me give you some biblical references to consider (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; Jude 1:7). 

Taxation, the right to keep and bear arms, freedom of speech, private property rights, and national security are also extremely important to me.  There are many many more, but I will conclude with this and hope that you receive this as my view.  You do not have to accept or agree with me and I will still interact with you.  But my principles demand that I reject any political party that pursues those things that are contrary to the Original Intent of the Constitution, the Bible, and moral common sense. 

God bless you and God bless America!

DO THOSE ON THE LEFT BELIEVE THEIR OWN HYPE?


I am quite serious in asking this question based on their shock at their own polls regarding Joe Biden’s favorability.  Chuck Todd recently was obviously distraught and in a state of disbelief that the NBC Poll showed that 71% of voters believe America, under Biden, is on the wrong track. 

He called the news ‘scary’ for Democrats.  It took only a few months for most Americans to have buyer’s remorse over their vote against Trump or for Biden.  Most Americans, I still believe, are somewhat rational beings.  Therefore, they realize that what is happening to America under Biden and the Left is costing them financially as well as in their personal liberties and freedoms.  Would they say that?  No, but they will express their discontent in a somewhat generic poll.  They feel they maintain sufficient anonymity, to tell the truth.

Mr. Todd further lamented that Joe Biden’s approval rating stood at a dismal 41% versus 54% who disapprove.  I suspect that if the truth were known it is even worse than that, but then, there are millions out there who have lost the ability to think or reason for themselves.  They parrot what they hear from the media and politicians.  It is easier for them to be told what to think than think.  They simply hold out their hands to receive the morsel tossed their way and express hate for whomever they are told is bad.

In that poll, only 37% said Biden was competent.  The same number as believe he can handle a crisis.  Over 50% disagree with those assertions.  Those polls indicate that the voting public believe that the Republicans are better equipped by double digits to handle border security, inflation, crime, the economy, and generally getting things done.  The areas favorable for the Leftists are climate change, coronavirus, education, and abortion. 

Abortion?  Of course, they are the party of infanticide.  Education?  Naturally, those being polled are the product of decades of Leftists propaganda and brainwashing.  Coronavirus?  Basically, because they believe what they hear from the media and deem it viable, valid, and trustworthy.  I won’t even address the issue of man-made global warming or climate change.  It is a Leftist-driven issue devoid of sufficient valid scientific evidence to support the overreaction and lockdowns. You can disagree if you choose.

I have asked and been asked, “Why Was Biden Elected?”  I generally deflect and respond with a multi-part answer.  Voter Fraud would suggest that he was not legitimately elected, but even if we discount that, it played a role in the election of some down-ballot persons.  Therefore, if we dismiss voter fraud (not that I do) that leaves only one conclusion – Hate for Donald John Trump. 

I do not believe that with the poll numbers now cropping up regarding Biden and his presidency that most people truly wanted him.  With the prevalence of hatred for Trump, it appears that the Democratic Party could have nominated a blind, mentally challenged rodent and the 2020 results would have been virtually the same.  Not even the Democrats love Joe Biden.

All his cabinet members, the media, the DNC, and other establishment types cringe every time he opens his mouth.  He will mumble, stumble along and then utter something beyond stupid, lame, and often incoherent. 

I laughed myself to tears when I read the Economist’s note that, “only a tiny corner of a large Arlington, Virginia park had been fenced off and floodlit to create the safest possible space in the most reliably Democratic city of a state that Biden won by ten points.”  The tiny corner was correct because only a handful of Democratic supporters showed up.  Most Democrats are ambivalent about Joe Biden.  The crowd was polled about their view of him, and some said they were “indifferent” while others said that they held “no view.”  Nobody was uncovered that was enthusiastic about him.

I loved the results in Virginia after Biden told the crowd, “Remember this: I ran against Donald Trump and Terry is running against an acolyte of Donald Trump.”  Guess What Uncle Joe – Terry lost and Younkin won!  He claimed and claims to be a uniter and has gone out of his way to divide this nation.  Mid-term elections are always a referendum on the sitting president, not the predecessor.  This is not about Trump nearly as much as it is about Biden.  Uncle Joe, you are getting an “F” not an “A”.  Please don’t assume that I am dropping the F-bomb, I don’t use that language and am referring to letter grades on job performance.

Yet, the media and the establishment crowd still claim that Biden has done so much to “Build America Back.”  He has “Sent America Back” to the Carter and Obama eras in which inflation, joblessness, and lack of respect by the world have taken center stage.  Do they truly believe that Joe Biden is a fitting president of the greatest nation on the planet?  I don’t believe they do, but how can I be sure since they appear stunned when forced to look reality in the face.

To make matters worse for the Left and dangerous for all of us a CNN Poll reported that only 2% of Americans think Biden is doing “very well.”  I did say two percent as in 2 out of 100 people.  The full poll was that 2% said the country was doing “very well”, 29% said “fairly well” but a whopping 45% said, “pretty bad” and 24% said, “very badly.”  The combination of the net answers places 69% of the people in the “pretty/very badly” category and only 31% in the “very/fairly well” category.   If my math is correct that is a 38% difference in the negative for Biden.

Let me make every Leftist’s head explode.  In January 2020 the number for “very well” for Donald Trump was 20%.  So, I ask, “How Did Biden Get Elected?”  In this poll, 77% are worried about the economy in 2021 whereas only 58% were worried in 2020.  There are similar numbers regarding crime.  In 2021 57% are worried about crime and in 2020 only 37% were worried.  “How Did Joe Biden Get Elected?”

How do you trust a president that openly reports that he is told what to do, what to say when to say it, and when to do it?  How do you trust a president that is incoherent most of the time his lips are moving?  We should have learned under Ronald Reagan that conservatism works, and liberalism fails.  We should have learned under Donald Trump that a businessman who is not a politician can get things done positively in the political realm but a politician like Joe Biden can only mess things up.  We have zero need for career politicians who have no idea what the business world is like or how to give Americans more opportunities to succeed.

God help us to wake up and may God give us a stay of execution until we can rectify this mess in 2022 and 2024 and prayerfully never repeat our mistake.

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!

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!
