“Our Rights Do Not Come From God” Sayeth The Leftist – They Come From Obama And Government

The Tyrants on the Left up the meme that Our Rights do not come from our Creator, rather they insist that ‘rights’  are ‘agreed to’ and ‘permitted’ by Government

The seig-heiling of government power and the rewriting of our history by Leftists in media and education, from Obama on down – is accelerating to obscene levels of the ridiculous and false.  Just as we saw with Brian Williams, the media no longer reports news – it lies to further the Leftist Narrative and the MarxoFascist Agenda.

In this case of Godless media propaganda, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo attempted to shame Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in a heated argument over the imposition of homosexual marriage upon the states and the people of this country.  When Judge Moore stated that our Rights come from God – Cuomo went ballistic and insisted that our “collective rights” come from men and government, NOT God.

The fact of the matter is that if Rights are granted by men or government, Rights can be easily rescinded by men and their governments at any time of their choosing – and if that be the case – then they are not rights at all – merely ‘privileges’, granted by government.  I have heard Leftists often state and opine that ‘rights’ they disagree with should be recategorized as ‘privileges’ – especially speech and religion, while at the same time they insist homosexual sex and marriage is an inalienable right they are born with and must be upheld and agreed to by all.

What you see taking place here with this whole homosexual marriage agenda is Genesis 19 come alive right in your face.  It will never stop, they will never be satisfied – not until they have their way and until your beliefs match theirs or is exterminated.

Liberty and a republic cannot exist within a society that thinks Rights come from men and government.  Because the moment enough people actually believe their inalienable rights come from men and government, a tyranny of men will ALWAYS make legal, the justification to eliminate such ‘rights’ it finds an obstacle to complete and total power and control.

CNN Anchor: ‘Our Rights Do Not Come From God’

During a heated discussion over gay marriage, CNN morning Anchor Chris Cuomo opined that the unalienable rights endowed to all Americans do not come from God.

Cuomo was debating Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. Near the end of the back-and-forth and after Moore argued that rights cannot be handed down by men, Cuomo blurted out:

“Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man… That’s your faith, that’s my faith, but that’s not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.”

Maybe Mr. Cuomo flunked elementary civics. The opening sentence of the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence clearly affirms:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

It may be more convenient to Cuomo’s political philosophy that a select few are empowered to grant rights to the masses, but it certainly is not part of this country’s foundation.

What’s worse is Cuomo is advocating “collective” rights. He speaks as if every American right can simply be overturned at a whim simply because “times change.” “Sure, freedom of speech was great in 1789, but we’ve evolved beyond that as a collective society.” This is a very dangerous slope on which to tread.

A Prophetic Warning For America Is Coming True

AmericasDestruction

“If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution, which holds us together, no man can tell, how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us, that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity”.

My friend and historian Bill Federer of American Minute reminds us that these times in which we now see unfolding around us in this country, were warned against by our forbears and patriarchs.  We may want to blame the political leaders, the agendas of radical groups and hedonists for the tyranny this nation has devolved into – but the truth is, you and I, the American Christian are ultimately responsible for surrendering a culture and nation to such evil designs.  We remained silent in the face of evil.

A lukewarm church that will not stand against overt sins and abomination in a culture is a people who will likewise not stand against or resist overt tyranny.  Which explains why the shackles of bondage are being placed upon our necks with absolutely no resistance whatsoever.

DANIEL WEBSTER’S PREDICTION FOR AMERICA COMING TRUE

Bill Federer remembers dire warning against nation that forgets God

One of the five greatest senators in U.S. history, the State of New Hampshire placed his statue in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall. His career spanned almost four decades, serving as secretary of State for Presidents William Harrison, John Tyler and Millard Fillmore. His name was Daniel Webster, born Jan. 18, 1782.

From a New Hampshire farm, he attended Dartmouth College and became the highest paid attorney of his day. He fought the slave trade and negotiated the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, which set the nation’s Northeast boundary.

When South Carolina threatened nullification, he stated: “Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable!”

When asked what the most profound thought was that ever passed through his mind, Daniel Webster responded: “My accountability to God.”

At the age of 20, Daniel Webster served as the headmaster of Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine, where he delivered a Fourth of July Oration in 1802: “If an angel should be winged from Heaven, on an errand of mercy to our country, the first accents that would glow on his lips would be, ‘Beware! Be cautious! You have everything to lose; nothing to gain.’ We live under the only government that ever existed which was framed by the unrestrained and deliberate consultations of the people. Miracles do not cluster. That which has happened but once in six thousand years cannot be expected to happen often. Such a government, once gone, might leave a void, to be filled, for ages, with revolution and tumult, riot and despotism.”

At the age of 70, just eight months before his death, Daniel Webster addressed the New York Historical Society, Feb. 23, 1852: “If we, and our posterity, shall be true to the Christian religion, if we and they shall live always in the fear of God, and shall respect his commandments, if we, and they, shall maintain just, moral sentiments, and such conscientious convictions of duty as shall control the heart and life, we may have the highest hopes of the future fortunes of our country. … It will have no Decline and Fall. It will go on prospering and to prosper.

“But, if we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution, which holds us together, no man can tell, how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us, that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity. Should that catastrophe happen, let it have no history! Let the horrible narrative never be written!”

Daniel Webster continued: “We may trust, that Heaven will not forsake us, nor permit us to forsake ourselves. We must strengthen ourselves, and gird up our loins with new resolution; we must counsel each other; and, determined to sustain each other in the support of the Constitution, prepare to meet manfully … whatever of difficulty, or of danger … or of sacrifice, the Providence of God may call upon us to meet.

“Are we of this generation so derelict, have we so little of the blood of our revolutionary fathers coursing through our veins, that we cannot preserve, what they achieved?” he asked. “The world will cry out ‘shame’ upon us, if we show ourselves unworthy, to be the descendants of those great and illustrious men, who fought for their liberty, and secured it to their posterity, by the Constitution of the United States. … We have a great and wise Constitution. We have grown, flourished, and prospered under it, with a degree of rapidity, unequaled in the history of the world. Founded on the basis of equal civil rights, its provisions secure perfect equality and freedom; those who live under it are equal, and enjoy the same privileges.”

Daniel Webster added: “The Constitution has enemies, secret and professed. … They have hot heads and cold hearts. They are rash, reckless, and fierce for change, and with no affection for the existing institutions of their country. … Other enemies there are, more cool, and with more calculation. These have a deeper and more fixed and dangerous purpose. … There are those in the country, who profess, in their own words, even to hate the Constitution.

“Friends of the Constitution must rally and unite … act, with immovable firmness, like a band of brothers, with moderation and conciliation … looking only to the great object set before them, the preservation of the Constitution, bequeathed to them by their ancestors. They must gird up their loins for the work. It is a duty which they owe to these ancestors, and to the generations which are to succeed them.”

Daniel Webster concluded: “Gentlemen, I give my confidence, my countenance, my heart and hand, my entire co-operation to all good men … who are willing to stand by the Constitution. … I hardly know … the manner of our political death. … We shall die no lingering death. … An earthquake would shake the foundations of the globe, pull down the pillars of heaven, and bury us at once in endless darkness. Such may be the fate of this country and its institutions. May I never live, to see that day! May I not survive to hear any apocalyptic angel, crying through the heavens, with such a voice as announced the fall of Babylon, ‘Ἔπεσεν, ἔπεσεν, Αμερικη ἡ μεγάλη, καὶ ἐγένετο κατοικητήριον δαιμονίων, καὶ φυλακὴ παντὸς πνεύματος ἀκαθάρτου’ (Greek: ‘Is fallen, is fallen, America the Great has become a habitation of demons and a hold for every unclean spirit’).”

Transformation Through Treason; The Obama Agenda

IslamicHorse

The Obama regime aids Jihadists, threatens allies, engages in subterfuge while working to empower Iran.  At the same time it advises the Pope to push Obama’s Fundamental Transformation

He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. -Daniel 7:25

Connecting the dots to Obama’s radical past and plans to fundamentally transform America into a Communist hellhole as punishment for it’s existence has not been difficult to do if one wanted to find the truth hiding in plain sight.  Obama plainly empowers Jihadists across the globe – from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Yemen, to the push for nukes built in Iran.  Every opportunity to strengthen the Islamists while denying their threat to the free world is advantaged while Obama routinely engages in the subterfuge of our allies.   Refusing to genuflect to Obama’s dictates incurs the wrath of the Regime in concert with his Praetorian media as His Heinous actually instructs the Pope to cause the world’s Christians to genuflect to the fraud of Climate Change as the tool to punish the West.

Lately, his transformational plans have exponentially accelerated and if one looks at the news just in the past week – a pattern of treason to both our own nation and our allies is self-evident.  Let’s connect the dots from just this week and see if the Trojan Horse that is the Obama Regime and Dictatorship is not becoming more clear to even the sophomoric amongst us.

Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following Obama’s State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials.

The Muslim Brotherhood statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” it states.

Preparation for jihad is a key theme of the Brotherhood’s latest call for jihad.

The Muslim Brotherhood Calls For “A Long, Uncompromising Jihad” In Egypt After Meeting With US State Department

It couldn’t be more obvious to me that Obama and his Administration are in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. This past week, they held a confab at the State Department concerning their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013. And that just pissed Obama off to no end. Not hard to tell where his allegiances lie and they certainly aren’t with Israel.

Waleed Sharaby, who is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Brotherhood, posed for a selfie in front of the State Department emblem while showcasing the Muslim Brotherhood Rabia four-finger sign. The caption under the pic says, “Now in the U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone.”

From aiding and comforting the Muslim Brotherhood, let’s look at the fruits of Obama’s swapping high-ranking Taliban generals for Army Deserter Bowe Bergdahl:

Freed Taliban detainee Mohammed Fazl rejoins Jihad

Taliban Leader Obama Swapped For Alleged Deserter Bergdahl Has Gone Back to Fight With Taliban

According to an exclusive obtained by CNN, one of the five Taliban commanders President Obama swapped for alleged Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl last year has attempted to reengage in “militant activity”

This can be filed under “this-would-be-hilarious-if-it-were-not-so-damned-destructive category”as evidence of the absolute demonic efforts the Obama regime imparts to insist Jihadists are not terrorists, as the very enemy he aids and comforts shows the world what the truth is:

 

Taliban_Jihadists

The Taliban executes 3 Americans moments after the Obama regime insists the Taliban “are not terrorists”

A spokesman for the Taliban claimed responsibility for a shooting at a military airport in Kabul on Thursday which left three American contractors dead.

The attack comes as the White House is refusing to call the Taliban a terrorist organization, opting instead for the softer label of “armed insurgency.”

Then there’s the vicious promise of punishment for daring to defy The Won and meet with Congress to discuss Iran’s nuke program:

Jarrett

“ISRAEL WILL PAY A PRICE”: Obama Regime Promises To Hurt Israel, Netanyahu For “Spitting In Obama’s Face” Over Iran Nukes

Obama says he will not meet Netanyahu “Because protocol is that we do not want to interfere with Israeli elections” (all the while Obama has a campaign team IN Israel working to defeat Netanyahu).  This is the arrogance of evil, and the fear that Netanyahu might actually foil their plans to get Iran that nuclear arsenal if [Bibi] screws up their “deal” by convincing Congress to pass more sanctions. Make no mistake: Obama’s Iran deal is designed to do nothing but guarantee that Iran gets a nuclear arsenal.

Of course the chutzpah of this regime is beyond the pale, because as Obama cites ‘protocol’ for anger over Netanyahu meeting with Congress as “interfering with Israeli elections”, Obama sent a team of his operatives to DEFEAT the Israeli Prime minister:

DipshitBird

OBAMA CAMPAIGN TEAM ARRIVES IN ISRAEL TO DEFEAT NETANYAHU IN MARCH ELECTIONS

Just days after the Obama White House accused House Speaker John Boehner of “breaking protocol” by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress, a team of up to five Obama campaign operatives has reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections scheduled for March 17.

Then there’s Obama’s and Valerie Jarrett’s open empowering of Iran and it’s nuclear weapons program, which if you look at this from a biblical prophecy point-of-view, Obama is constructing the End-Time Beast along with the King of the North and the King of the South – for an eventual conflict which will result in the King of the North conquering much of the Middle East.

JarrettIranian

Obama’s Pivot To Iran 

..[F]rom ongoing nuclear diplomacy with Iran to Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to ensure his relationship with Obama will be seen as the most toxic in the history of Israel and the United States — suggest this administration’s foreign-policy legacy may ultimately center on a different “strategic rebalancing.” This one will benefit, however, in ways once unimaginable in U.S. foreign-policy circles, the Islamic Republic of Iran.

It is quite possible that, by the time Obama leaves office, no other country on Earth will have gained quite so much as Iran. Not all of this will be the doing of the United States, of course, and in fact some of it may prove to be the undoing of our interests in the long run.

Then this from the Out-Of-The-Horse’s-Mouth Department:

irannukeFist

Obama Administration: Our Goal is Not to Eliminate Iran’s Nuke Program

A senior official in the State Department admitted on Wednesday that the Obama administration’s goal during negotiations with Iran is delaying the regime’s development of nuclear weapons rather than shutting down the Islamic Republic’s contested nuclear program.

Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken acknowledged during a tense exchange with senators on Capitol Hill a deal being sought by the Obama administration that would constrain its nuclear breakout capability without eliminating its nuclear program.

Now switching back to our own backyard for a moment, remember when Obama just dictated that he was going to ‘Normalize relations” with Cuba?  Well, here’s one consequence of that:

raulCastro

Castro Is Now Issuing Demands On U.S. — Well Done, Mr. Obama

Raul Castro was soon bragging about how he’d struck a deal with Obama “without a single sacrifice of our principles.”. he said there’d be no normalization of relations unless the U.S. ends the trade embargo, closes the naval base at Guantanamo Bay and takes Cuba off the list of state sponsors of terror.

Now it is bad enough that Obama issues Executive ‘Memoranda’ to impose an alien and foreign ideology upon us here in America, now Obama seeks to use the Pope as an instrument to ‘morally criminalize’ anyone who understands that Climate Change/Global Warming is just a hoax designed by Marxists to redistribute global wealth and punish the Industrial nations of the world in subservience to our enemies.

pope-EPA

Head Of EPA Advises Pope On Climate Letter

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy met with Vatican officials that helped draft Pope Francis’ climate-related encyclical on Friday, The Associated Press reports.

…Both the White House and Vatican City believe that the climate is changing, that humans are the cause and that we must act now.

As always with the Marxists, they insist ‘we must act now’ and impose their agenda upon us all as quickly as possible – before we useless eaters wake-up to what was just done to destroy us.  The fact the Regime is openly stating that it is issuing ‘directives’ for the Pope is pretty damning.  It speaks like a lamb, but is in reality – a dragon.

Pope Obama

Washington’s memo to the Vatican: the pope and Obama are in sync on climate change

America’s top environmental official has assured the Vatican that the pope and Barack Obama are singing from the same hymnal when it comes to fighting climate change.

In a visit to the Vatican, Gina McCarthy, the head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), conveyed a message to the pope that Obama shared his view that fighting climate change was a moral obligation.

“I want him to know that the president is aligned with him on these issues and that we are taking action in the United States,” McCarthy told the National Catholic Reporter ahead of the meeting.

She went so far as to suggest that Obama was “working with the pope” when it came to climate change.

Connect the dots of just this week’s news folks – and the picture of what the end-game picture Obama and his regime is looking to shape should frighten you out of your socks.  But the nation snoozes on, only interested in deflated football scandals – not that their leader is sowing their eventual punishment and destruction by aiding, comforting and abetting our enemies while foisting an agenda upon the world via treason to the very nation he is supposed to uphold.

Lesson Of Blizzard 2015: Americans Are Become A Nation Of Helpless Wimps

NYC-Blizzard2015

Old America, the land of the free and the brave is gone.  In a media-fed Panic, Cities shut down, transportation is closed, and America shows the world we are affrighted souls that will cower before a Winter snow.

Once upon a time in a faraway place called Chicagoland, there were two seasons of the year that were always inevitable.  Everyone knew they would come, and everyone knew they had to deal with them.

They were the dreaded seasons of Winter and Road Construction.

To date, these are two seasons that even the nonsensical hype of global warming and “climate change” cannot affect.  In fact, I have discovered that in most urban and big city areas, these two seasons are like peanut butter and jelly.  One will follow right after the other.  Once upon a time in America, you shrugged your shoulders, perhaps you cursed, you rolled up your sleeves or windows and you slogged through both of those miserable seasons until you got to where you were going.  Get there you would, no matter what it took, and no amount of complaining and whining would make any difference.  You just dealt with it.

In the old days, school rarely, if ever, closed for the weather – and most folks braved elements that today’s wimpish people would not dare contemplate themselves enduring.

I remember vividly, the Blizzard of ’79 in Chicago.  The two full days of wet snow dumping without ceasing, followed by a bone-chilling wind that would rip right through you.  School was canceled only after about 8 inches fell, and I recall fondly the memories of digging out cars, shoveling off our roof (because the weight of the snow had been collapsing roofs in some suburban shopping centers) building the world’s largest snow forts and having days on end of Winter fun sledding off our roof and pummeling passers-by with snowballs.

roof79 79Chitown 1979Chicago

Our parents and elders did as they always have done; curse the weatherman for a faulty forecast and trudge on out to shovel some more and help dig our neighbors.  We would clear the streets before the plows walled-off homeowners  in mountains of wet snow and slush that required immediate shoveling, or it would freeze at the end of your driveway into an impenetrable wall that one could not breach until perhaps late April.  We made great money that Winter shoveling out neighborhoods and helping to excavate cars from snowdrift prisons.  Blizzards and storms were not some kind of apocalypse or ‘historic’  event back in Old America.

In Old America, we used to call modern-day ‘snowpocalypses': Winter.  We called what the Northeast saw this week: Winter.   We expected it would be bitter cold and we expected at some point or many points depending on how Winter rolled, we would have mountains of snow that would stay on the ground for months and over-time, plowed mountains of snow would turn soot-black and hang around parking lot light poles until mid-June.  Those who loved the snow as we did,  prayed and jumped with glee for forecasts of a foot or more of the white stuff, and even when rent could not be made unless every day was worked.  A snow day was a welcome break in the bleak days of Winter.

I remember in 1979 that despite being buried in snow and drifts over 3 feet, life went on, and pretty quickly.  Schools were opened as soon as the main roads were cleared.  People went to work.  I recall reading complaints from those in the city limits where the response to clearing the streets was slow.  In fact, I think it was common knowledge that due to secondary streets being unplowed for a month, stalled L-trains and busses and trash piling up – that the mayor lost his reelection bid to a Jane Byrne. The politics of that Winter outlasted the snow in terms of memory for many Chicagoans.

We never needed to turn to the media or the government to tell us what to do to “prepare” for a winter storm.  Perhaps in the event of Nuclear fallout from a Russian ICBM we might incline our ears to hear what we should do in the event Chicago got glassed by the Russkies – but not for flakes falling from the sky.  We were not dependent on either the media or government to tell us what to do.  We just did as we each saw fit, and most often, it was the right things to do.

That was then, back in Old America  – back when America was a free country with a people that laughed at adversity and slugged themselves through difficulties, often without much complaining.  It was what you did, back in Old America.

But this is no longer the America we once grew up in.  In today’s America, the Praetorian Crisis-centered 24/7 media stokes a panic that today’s Nanny-State Government Politicians seize upon to impose quasi-martial-law and shut down entire cities if flakes are forecast to pile-up into more than a few inches.

So the blizzard of 2015 in the Northeast comes a-calling – not exactly Miami or Kingston Jamaica unfamiliar with the white stuff, and I offer the lunacy of this event as a text-book illustration of how wimped-out and afraid of our own long shadows of Winter Americans in Nanny-State Leftist controlled New America have become.

After a heavy bombardment of endless non-stop weather channel and media coverage panicking  people to prepare for the end of daze two days before the event, government officials like New York Communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio, hop on the ‘Armageddon-is-coming – prepare-to-shelter-in-place-now’ bandwagon.   Obama-hugging Chris Christie went on to declare a State of Emergency more than 24 hours BEFORE the snow started falling in earnest along with other mayors and government officials jumping in front of every camera they could find to ‘warn’ everyone of the impending ‘disaster’.

Juno1juno SOM

The hordes of megalopolis Northeasterners, like dutiful sheep freaked-out, and lined up in the elements as if waiting for tickets to a blockbuster, to invade stores like locusts to “prepare” for what was promised to be a ‘catastrophe’.  Food staples like beer, M&Ms, chips, pretzels and wine flew off shelves.  Carry-out establishments were mobbed with orders for citizens who have no knowledge of how to work a microwave oven.   Lonely souls who were told everything, including bars, bathhouses and x-rated clubs were shutting down, put out invites on Craigslist for sexual partners to share the time whilst Winter destroyed civilization around them.


juno WholeFood juno emergency supplies juno WholeFood2

 

Bread and milk became extinct. In the height of the stoked panic, the politicians issued defacto orders of Martial law – announcing the complete closures of all roads to anyone besides emergency personnel.  The NY Mayor, never allowing even a potential crisis to go to waste, urged New Yorkers to “Prepare for something worse than we have seen before”.   Really.  That is pretty stunning to suggest, considering anything worse than this:

WTC-9-11

…would undoubtably be a just-cause to panic and run around screaming that the world was indeed, coming to an end.

So, with the entire city closing, curfews being imposed and threats of fines for being outside after 11 PM, panicked residents crammed the highways and bottlenecked themselves into a parking lot as snow began falling.  So, as I watched in amusement from afar – noting that the media makes every single weather event a :”catastrophic crisis unparalleled in human history” to push the GlobalWarming/Climate Change narrative down all out throats, I mused to myself that never before in the history of the country, has an entire city been shut down in fear over a potential weather event that had yet to occur.

juno allcarsoff

 

So Tuesday morning dawns on America’s largest and “most important city”, to a blanket of…. 6″ of snow that covered a ‘City that never sleeps – but will shut down the moment there are flakes in the forecast”.

JunoNYC aftermath2 JunoNYC aftermath JunoNYC aftermath3

The media asks “What went wrong with the forecast?”  as if it was not the panic and the hype that was overblown, misused and wrong – but the variables in the forecasting itself.  Urging Americans to become helpless wimps beholden to the media and government is not to be questioned, but the weather forecasters for getting it wrong.  Of course the agenda of Climate Change continues to be whipped about like a chain mace that it’s wielders promise to flog us with until everyone agrees for the remedy for regular Americans to go back living as if it were the 1600’s – minus coal and wood burning stoves.

I have to scream: “IT’S WINTER YOU IDIOTS!  IT SNOWS BIG SOMETIMES IN THE WINTER AND GETS COLD!”  Have we really become a nation of helpless wimps that need the media and government to turn every potential issue into a life-threatening crisis that demands we accept quasi-martial law?  Or are we being conditioned for the same?  Are we truly stupid enough to let ourselves be conditioned to accept such a fate?

This ridiculous event makes it a frightening prospect, that if ISIS and the Jihadist Caliphate wanted to conquer New York City – all they would have to do is forecast a blizzard or some weather event to shut down the city and impose martial law.

Americans have become afraid of their own shadows at the urging of the media and the government whom they have made into their god.  Or at minimum as this event illustrates, afraid of some snowflakes.

As for those of you who may be left, I will also bring weakness into your hearts in the lands of your enemies. And the sound of a driven leaf will chase them, and even when no one is pursuing they will flee as though from the sword, and they will fall. They will therefore stumble over each other as if running from the sword, although no one is pursuing; and you will have no strength to stand up before your enemies. ‘But you will perish among the nations, and your enemies’ land will consume you.… – Leviticus 26: 36-38

Christians Flee The Church As Wickedness Rises Within The Nation

emptychurch

A lukewarm, dead and dying church stuck in tradition and rigidness is driving away the very people they were sent to save

Interesting essay and honest explanation of how the Christian church in America is dwindling.  While the author has several excellent points, and his overall message is a good one, he misses some very blatant truths that we must understand in order to apply the great admonition he gives the church in America at his conclusion.  My comments are not intended to criticize, but add some weight and gravitas to the issues that are driving many out and away from the Church.   My comments are from viewing the problems he cites from a pastoral/missionary perspective.  I would definitely read the entire essay, my comments follow the quote boxes.

Dear Church, Here’s Why People Are Really Leaving You

Being on the other side of the Exodus sucks, don’t it?

I see the panic on your face, Church.  I know the internal terror as you see the statistics and hear the stories and scan the exit polls.

I see you desperately scrambling to do damage control for the fence-sitters, and manufacture passion from the shrinking faithful, and I want to help you.

You may think you know why people are leaving you, but I’m not sure you do.

You think it’s because “the culture” is so lost, so perverse, so beyond help that they are all walking away.

You believe that they’ve turned a deaf ear to the voice of God; chasing money, and sex, and material things.

To diminish the Churchs’ view that this culture’s glittering temptation and focus on money, sex and material things is a major factor in the shrinking church in America is a gross misunderstanding of a key device Satan has used to blind the church in America. We do believe many are not interested in God because the pursuit of the flesh is indeed a major focus of the American/Western mindset.   If chasing money, sex and material things was NOT a major focus for many Christians , why is it the Joel Osteen Health/wealth Prosperity Gospel is the largest growing ‘church’ for so many??  Look, I’ve listened to Osteen’s Zig Zigglar self-help positive thinking path to wealth and riches gospel.  It attracts many like moths to a flame and at the same time runs off many more in  disgust and shame.  Osteen himself preaches chasing money and material things (Name It and Claim It physical blessings) as the sign of a ‘mature Christian’ and that those who suffer without such things ‘lack faith’.  Under that false gospel, when money, sex and material things do not visit those who pay homage to that doctrine, many do lose heart and faith in the church as a whole and decide to pursue those goals outside of a Christian framework.

You think that the gays and the Muslims and the Atheists and the pop stars have so screwed up the morality of the world that everyone is abandoning faith in droves.

To subtly suggest that those agendas have not assisted in the abandonment of the faith is also a major oversight.  In fact those agendas have watered-down the church because the very people this author is citing for leaving the church are the same people who see nothing wrong with homosexuality, affirm there are many paths to heaven and that pop stars are the definition of their generation.  The church itself has been influenced greatly by those things, which is why praise and worship has become a hip-hop concert for many and churches who speak out against the homosexual and secular agendas are targeted for blame in this exodus he addresses.

But those aren’t the reasons people are leaving you.

They aren’t the problem, Church.

You are the problem.

Let me elaborate in five ways …

1. Your (Church) productions have worn thin.

This point while excellent and true, contradicts the earlier statement of Church opinion that gays and pop stars have screwed up morality.  The church itself is mimicking much of the cultural rot that is popular in order to attract ‘believers’.  But his point about much of what passes for ‘praise and worship’ being white noise with little sustaining substance during the rest of the week is spot-on.

2. You speak in a foreign tongue.

…You’re holding onto dusty words that have no resonance in people’s ears, not realizing that just saying those words louder isn’t the answer. All the religious buzzwords that used to work 20 years ago no longer do.

Very true, and also you can add varying church traditions that are defined as doctrines to that mix of ‘foreign tongues’.  Making scripture and the faith relevant in this evil world is imperative.  Sadly what often happens is that the church either makes doctrine of utmost importance to the exclusion of all else, or it compromises the faith and the scriptures to make the culture relevant in the church, rather than the church being a relevant force in the culture.

3. Your vision can’t see past your building.

The coffee bar, the cushy couches, the high-tech lights, the funky Children’s wing and the uber-cool Teen Center are all top-notch … and costly. In fact, most of your time, money and energy seems to be about luring people to where you are instead of reaching people where they already are.

Perhaps the greatest indictment in this essay that I wholeheartedly agree with.  Missions seem to the be the very first thing churches cut from their budget as the greater Church in America turns inward to satisfy the ‘needs’ of the congregation that wants all the accoutrements of comfort and provision for their ‘experience’.  Instead of a place that people come in to sharpen iron so they can GO OUT into the world to do Matthew 28:19-20, the Church sets as it’s marketing goals a place for people to come in….and stay in.

 4. You choose lousy battles.

We know you like to fight, Church. That’s obvious. When you want to, you can go to war with the best of them. The problem is, your battles are too darn small.

I would modify this one and say that churches love to fight one another over doctrine and easy cultural skirmishes, but when it comes to the real heavy issues where Satan has the high ground; abortion, homosexual marriage, sexual addictions, promiscuity, adultery and divorce – the church not only runs away from confronting those sins and agendas, but has surrendered to them completely.

5. Your love doesn’t look like love.

Love seems to be a pretty big deal to you, but we’re not getting that when the rubber meets the road. In fact, more and more, your brand of love seems incredibly selective and decidedly narrow; filtering out all the spiritual riff-raff, which sadly includes far too many of us.

It feels like a big bait-and-switch sucker-deal; advertising a “Come as You Are” party, but letting us know once we’re in the door that we can’t really come as we are. We see a Jesus in the Bible who hung out with lowlifes and prostitutes and outcasts, and loved them right there, but that doesn’t seem to be your cup of tea.

To the world, our love does not ‘look’ like love because this wicked world has redefined what ‘love’ means.

This culture under Satan has redefined ‘love’, and the church has swallowed that baited trap hook, line and sinker. “Love” in this culture has  been redefined to mean “accept” and “tolerate” which graduates to ‘compromise’.  Because if we tell a sinner to overcome his sin (i.e.; homosexuality) the church is automatically declared to have no love or ‘tolerance’.

Yet the scriptures explicitly tell us that God has no tolerance for sin, and as a direct result of it, sent His only Son to DIE, so that we could have our sins covered UNDER HIM, and live in a new life away and outside of the wickedness of the world.

‘Come as you are’ does not mean ‘remain as you are’ – which many complainers of Christianity make as their justification of hostility and indifference to the faith.

In Revelation 2 & 3, Jesus repeats the same thing to all the Churches: OVERCOME.  To him who OVERCOMES will He grant to sit on His Throne.  Overcome what?  Obviously – sin.  That gives bearing one another’s burdens a whole new meaning does it not?  If we have no love, we would leave the world to rot in the consequences of it’s sins.  If we LOVE, we will point to the path of redemption, reconciliation and OVERCOMING the sin, so the consequences of that behavior are not visited upon men, or their children.

These words may get you really, really angry, and you may want to jump in a knee-jerk move to defend yourself or attack these positions line-by-line, but we hope that you won’t.

We hope that you’ll just sit in stillness with these words for a while, because whether you believe they’re right or wrong, they’re real to us, and that’s the whole point.

What is real to us, is not always what is important to God.  Often, with this flesh, what is important to us is the values of this world we live in and the perspectives Satan wants us to see faith in.   Scripture says there is a way that seems right (or real) to a man, but therein lies the path to death (Proverbs 16:25).   What this essay brings forth should cause us to reflect on the truths cited, but there is much meat that is missing that would lend the warnings and complaints so much more weight.

Maybe I am the problem.

Maybe it is me, but me is all I’m capable of being right now, and that’s where I was really hoping you would meet me.

The failures of the church in dealing with someone struggling with sin, or lost in sin is indeed a major problem that the author rightly addresses.  He makes the case for ‘hearing’ his complaint, and he touches on the idea of ‘coming alongside’ those suffering in sin and pain.  However, in this current culture that is often easily twisted into the demand to capitulate with sin and ‘not judging sin’. We need to come along side someone seeking, to help them OVERCOME sin, and say ‘this is the Way, walk in it’.  Too often that is being defined as ‘intolerance’ and imposition, and the church has not done a good job of defending the need to rescue people out of their sins, because this culture and the church have bought the lie that defining the sin and pointing sin out, is the only sin there really is.

But so too has the Church failed in the manner the author addresses.  Rather than helping others come out of sin, there is often ostracization, dismissal and disfellowship, which is what this author addresses as a major contributor to the exodus from the Church.

Bearing one another’s burdens is something the church tends to limit to only helping fellow church members cope after a disaster or trial.  Helping someone come out of an addictive behavior or sin is just as necessary.  Shame and brokenness can be a weapon Satan uses to keep us from the church and keep the church away from us.  Yet, we do not teach brethren Apologetics to be able to say when accused of a sin, that yes – I sin, which is WHY I NEED A SAVIOR.  Equipping saints to help others come out of their struggles with sins is a course that has yet to be taught in many mainline and secondary denominations.

So yes, Church, even if you’re right, even if we’re totally wrong—even if we’re all petty, and self-centered, and hypocritical, and critical, and (I’ll say it), “sinful”—we’re still the ones searching for a place where we can be known and belong; a place where it feels like God lives, and you’re the ones who can show it to us.

Depends on what such people are seeking.  If they are seeking a place to come be known and belong without any emphasis on overcoming themselves and their sins, by the renewing of their minds, then what they seek is not what the church is for.  Jesus said “Be perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48), and while we acknowledge that we may never be so in this life, it does not negate the fact Jesus intended that to be what we strive for as Christians.  If people want to find a place where “God lives”, it is going to be in a body that not only loves and praises God, but acknowledges our sins, bears one another’s burdens and helps one another OVERCOME our sins and shortcomings, so we can all learn to put on the mind of Christ, to build Our Father’s character in our minds and hearts.

True love is when you are not afraid to tell someone struggling with sin, ‘Go and sin no more, I will help as best I can to bear that burden with you’.  What I hear many say in reply in this culture, is that such a position is intolerance and not acceptance, because our culture demands the Church accept the sinner as they are WITHOUT pushing them towards repentance.

If we are going to truly love someone, we are not going to leave them in their sin, which will result in death, literal and eternal.  What we hear many say who are leaving the church is what we read in Isaiah 30:10, Romans 16:18 and II Timothy 4:3.    A people influenced by a culture that tells them to give them only smooth and easy things, acceptance, tolerance and a promise of eternal life without transformation.

I see a church unwilling to change staunch unwavering positions of tradition and doctrine to serve the individual.  At the same time, I see a church unwilling confront the challenge from the culture, and falling to the demands that they bend and accept every demand the people infected by the culture demand.  A lukewarm church is not attractive, because many can see it stands for little or nothing but itself.

And that kind of hypocrisy and weakness is not a place they see or feel a powerful God exists to transform their lives.

Fundamentally Transformed Into An Imperial Fascist Oligarchy: What Do We Do Now?

DCIllegitimate2

The Federal Behemoth in Washington no longer has any legitimate authority over a free people.  So what now?  Our own history provides the answer.

Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. – Declaration of Independence

Part 2: What Do We Do Now?

In Part 1 of this essay, I laid out the evidence that the federal government is being run by an ideological oligarchy that has corrupted the entire institution of national government and grown into a tyranny.  I specifically cited two examples of federal agencies that are completely lawless and being used as weapons against the American people to abolish Constitutional rights.  That was last quarter of last year.

Today the examples are tenfold what they were when I originally wrote the essay.  The Executive power issues decrees, not even Executive Orders anymore – just “memoranda” that is then carried out as if it was ratified by every person in the legislature.  The Congress passes omnibus spending resolutions without a single member reading the thousands of pages of moneys robbed and spent from We The People into unpayable mountains of debt in the tens of trillions; when the people overwhelmingly vote representatives into office to STOP this descent into tyranny – they are immediately corrupted and threatened with punishment if they do not obey the will of the Ruling Class leadership and fall into line like seig-heiling zombies.

The plain truth is this, whether you will admit it openly or not: the federal government can no longer be trusted to safeguard our rights, our liberties or the rule of law to effect our happiness OR our security (open borders with Executive Amnesty decreed anyone?).  It has abused and usurped power from the people to implement a design to reduce us all under absolute Despotism.  It has made itself above the Law, outside the Law and a law unto itself.  In short, it is no different than if the Mafia had taken over the nation.

So what can we do? The Declaration of Independence states that we have a duty to fulfill in the case of tyranny.  The argument being waged among those of us who recognize where we have arrived, is what form of ‘throwing off such government’ entails in this ‘enlightened age?  Some point to elections and civility within the existing system as our path to throwing off a tyrannical yoke.  Let’s take a look at those arguments.

Some say write and call your federal Representatives.  I cannot think of anything that resembles passing wind better than this suggestion.  I offer that this is as ineffectual as sending another Olive Branch Petition to the Throne of King George.  The results will be the same; repeated injury en masse.  For petitioning our rulers for a redress of grievances is now being met with the same contempt and charge of sedition as it was when George III did it.  Or to use the same phrase as the Declaration: repeated injury.

Some say protest.  Another wasted effort.  The amount of disdain and contempt by the Ruling Class for liberty-minded Americans and Conservative Christians is off the scale.  When hundreds of thousands took the steps of the Capitol to protest ObamaCare and flooded town hall meetings, the Ruling Class ignored and demonized them declaring them to be ‘terrorists’ .  When citizens called their representatives to complain,  phones are left unanswered or off the hook and e-mailboxes are left full without reply.  If an answer is received, often it is a useless form letter or repeated injury.

washington-tea-party-rally

Some say elect more Republicans.  Well, we have over 20 years of results by a people who have been doing so, and I say that is a proven exercise in practicing insanity.  The GOP and the nation continue to pick up speed Leftward, until today we are fundamentally transformed into a Marxist/Fascist oligarchy.

The last election more than showcased the fact that the Will of The People will be ignored, undermined and thwarted each time the Oligarchy decides it will not allow itself to be restrained by The People.

WeeperODaHouse

So what shall we do?   Is it time to grab your gun, pitchforks and torches and head to the village green to face the Redcoats?  That history is certainly growing in consideration among many.

minutemen

Some will argue and rightfully so, that such an acton would give the Fascist juggernaut now ruling us the justification to do what they have already prepared to do to put down their political enemies and create the climate of fear that is next on the schedule to be implemented in the nation to criminalize the very spirit that birthed the nation.

So then what now?  Do we do nothing?  Do we just keep voting in this shell game of a corrupted system and blindly hope that someday, someone will do something that is not an attack on liberty?

What can we do in the face of our nation being fundamentally transformed into an Imperial Marxist/Fascist Oligarchy with a Roman-esue Senate doing the bidding of a Caesar with Praetorians in the media and every federal agency ready to pounce on whomever is targeted on command?

Roman Senate

Our own history provides the answer to what God Himself honored in granting a determined bunch of farmers willing to sacrifice everything, a victory over the greatest military might on earth at the time.

The answer is this: We refuse to comply with edicts from the Federal Beast.  We ignore unjust “laws” and “requirements” that contravene the Laws of God, the Constitution and your natural rights as established by God. We no longer consent to be governed by such a tyrannical cabal and as such, we from this point forward, refuse to comply with it.  We must remind ourselves that ‘It is better to obey God than men’ (Acts 5:29) as scripture says.  He is Our Sovereign, not the regime and it’s proponents now attempting to rule us.

That is what we must do.

And make no mistake, you will be called an insurrectionist, a rebel, a domestic terrorist for daring to defy the bullies in D.C., to which I offer this wisdom from Benjamin Franklin “Disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God”.  I state again, the entire Federal Governmental Beast is become tyrannical.

From a purely secular standpoint – since all the branches of the Federal Government can ignore the Supreme Law of the Land; refuse to comply with it’s limitations;  decide not to enforce ‘laws’ they do not agree with; and issue decrees of new laws that contravene the existing Constitution; deem treaties signed by the Executive without Congressional ratification ‘law’ – why then are the people obligated to follow what the Rulers on High demand?  Can we not also ignore their “laws”; refuse to comply with their edicts; decide not to obey “laws” we do not agree with and deem ‘memoranda’ issued by executive decree unlawful and of no effect? Or have we truly arrived at the time where law only applies to the “little people”; we serfs ruled on high by a Ruling Caste? Are some animals more equal than others in this fundamentally transformed nation?

The answer is obviously ‘yes’ to the latter judging facts and events currently ongoing.

Yet let this truth ring in your ears: a gun to our proverbial heads is the only power a tyranny such as the current Federal Government has over us.

Read that again and let it sink in: the only power the current Federal Government has over us, is a gun to our head with the threat to pull the trigger and put us down.  All they have is the threat to strip you of your wealth, property and life at the end of the guns that serve the state and the Caesar.  That is the only power they now have.

It no longer has any legitimate authority under Heaven, or the Constitution they have usurped and ignored, therefore We are no longer obligated under Heaven to abide such a tyranny.

From a biblical standpoint the question becomes; are we obligated to subject ourselves to governing authorities that are tyrannical and contravene the Laws of God and our rights?

I know I know, Pastors are busy preaching Romans 13 from the pulpits on orders from the government and some have been ordered to turn over their sermons to government officials.  Still many more are enslaved to the understanding that to defy any government authority is rebelling against God.

However, I hold that the Romans 13 argument in the context of obeying THIS CURRENT federal beast, is bogus.  Romans 13 specifically tells us that Authorities under God exist to punish evil.  What happens when a government authority becomes perverted and celebrates evil and exists to punish the God-fearing?  Are we still supposed to submit to that?  Are edicts and “laws” passed by such an entity biblically required of Christ followers to obey?

In the understanding of what our Founders wrote on the subject, any order or “law” that contravenes God’s Holy Laws and statutes and principles is not a “law” at all, it is forced sin by government upon those they demand follow it.  To them, Galatians 5:1 ended the Quaker argument for obedience to tyranny.  For they saw physical tyranny as no different than spiritual sin.    Most of them understood a physical tyranny such as they were suffering was the direct result of the sin of the whole people, and the 1760’s were filled with the call from pulpits to get the Colonies to repent and become the instruments against sin and tyranny they felt they needed to be.  That became the First Great Awakening.

Yet Pastors today preach that we must submit to such tyranny and limit our duty to praying for Obama and Congress?  I believe those that erroneously follow this bogus argument end up making the government their god, thus breaking the First Commandment.  Submitting to tyranny is not of God, but of Satan. For tyranny sins against Nature’s God and violates the natural Rights endowed upon His People.  As Christians, we have a duty to DEFY and DISOBEY such tyranny, and we have historical precedent for such duties to be blessed by God.

Jonathan Mayhew, one of the first pastors in America to fire the first spiritual volley against the tyranny of the Crown in 1750, spoke at the Old West Church in Boston to lay out the biblical case for disobeying a tyrant and arguing against the Quaker insistence that Romans 13 be followed to the utter end.

As soon as the prince sets himself up above law, he loses the king in the tyrant. He does, to all intents and purposes, unking himself by acting out of and beyond that sphere which the constitution allows him to move in; and in such cases he has no more right to be obeyed than any inferior officer who acts beyond his commission. – Jonathan Mayhew, 1750, ” Discourse Concerning Unlimited Submission

Americans have to come to understand and believe this same thing, before anything else can be done about what we currently are begin ruled by.  Let this sink in a moment and let me paraphrase Mayhew’s admonition in modern American English;  Americans have to come to understand that Obama and the Oligarchy in Congress have set themselves up above the Law, and because they have done this, they have lost the authority in their tyranny.  They have, to all intents and purposes, delegitimized themselves by acting out of and beyond the sphere which the Constitution has allowed them to move in; and in this case they have no more right to be obeyed than any officer who acts beyond their commission.

Understand this; when the government no longer has any legitimate authority over you, all it has in its disposal is brutal force waged at the end of a gun to force it’s will upon you.  At one time we used to recognize that as abject tyranny.  But no wonder, our people no longer recognize sin as biblically defined, and instead have called evil good, and good, evil.  It therefore follows that a majority of our people also do not recognize we are being ruled by a tyranny.  Since Satan is a tyrant and his devices are the instruments of subjugation and slavery – is it no coincidence so many Americans are ignorant of similar devices and instruments being used by government to enslave them?

For those of us NOT ignorant of these devices and what now has established itself over us, how do we respond to a tyranny that they think is ‘elected’ to do as it pleases to us?  A government that states it has lawful  ‘precedent’ to tyrannize us because it is what “the people” want.

Obama said strategically: “The government is us” for the insidious purpose of asserting that the everyone supports government and therefore everything government does, whether tyrannical or not, is legitimate.

Getting a mob on the side of tyranny is a fundamental function of a despotic Oligarchy. To create the illusion that anyone standing up for what is right, is the problem.  A problem that the people will applaud the tyranny to ‘take care of’.  An approval of a final solution to what the power of the state deems a threat to themselves.

Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro and the host of the last few generations of despotic Socialist dictators have all used this same tactic to great effect.

crowd-sieg-heiling

So ask yourself, do we submit to the threat of impoverishment, destitution, bodily harm and death in the vain hope of remaining unscathed?  Have we become ignorant of what ‘We pledge our lives, fortunes and sacred honor’ meant?    Have we gone so far as to accept that this government is there for our good?   If we do, we break the First Commandment by allowing government to become our god, no different than if Shaadrack, Meschak and Abednego had complied with Nebuchadnezzar and bowed to the image of gold.  Submitting to tyranny therefore is breaking the first Commandment.  This was the staunch belief of those who fought the lawful, legal authority of the Crown of England over the Colonies.

My countrymen, we are dealing with a Beast.  One that not only contravenes it’s established authority within the bounds of the Constitution, but the Federal Beast defies The Most High’s Authority with the agenda it has foisted upon the nation.

When King George III and his Parliament issued the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, and the Intolerable Acts – the Colonists openly defied and refused to comply with those decrees.  Instructively, upon the establishment of the Tea Act, the Sons of Liberty famously chucked all the tea from the East India Tea Company that the Crown was forcing on the Colonists, into Boston Harbor in 1773 – rather than pay the tax.  This resulted in the blockade of Boston and an ensuing siege intended to starve Massachusetts into submission.

Notice the order of events in this history: the tyranny of the governing authority issues decrees that trod upon the inalienable rights of the people.  The People eventually refuse to comply with those decrees and openly defy them. The Authority then invokes punitive and punishing measures against those that dare defy them.  They attempt impoverishment,  Siege and privation.  Then, if the subjects still refuse to submit and bow down, force of arms is deployed to put down their ‘rebellion’ – with the intent to kill and imprison any who dare challenge the authority.

It is at that stage, and at that point that the God-ordained inviolate Right of self defense is authorized, and indeed was used against the governing authorities.  To be blunt – when the tyrants sent armed shock troops to seize their weapons and force them to comply at gunpoint and occupation – the Colonists resisted the authority of the crown with lethal means.

Which by the way, is the ENTIRE reason and purpose of the Second Amendment, and trust me when I say that the Regime in power will eliminate that Right as soon as they are able to do so because they KNOW what the intent of that Amendment is, which is why every single despotic regime that comes into power ALWAYS disarms the very people they intend to destroy.

So again, what do we do now?

We do as our forbears. We should first repent of our individual sins, work towards national repentance – and refuse to comply with the wickedness and tyranny being foisted on us by Imperial decree. As history teaches, a tyranny will never abide or allow a people who refuse to comply with it’s edicts and demands.  They will crush such people and/or force them to comply by imposing every form of despotism, punishment and threat it has at it’s disposal.

Nothing new under the sun.  Our Founders understood that completely.

When the Signers of the Declaration declared their vote for Independence and put their names to the parchment, it was not lost on a single one of them the gravity of what they had just done.  They understood that in all practicality, they just signed their own death warrants.  A long silence settled on the Continental Congress as everyone silently contemplated what their action would result in.  The quiet was broken by Samuel Adams who defined what it was that they had really just accomplished by voting to rebel and defy the King and Parliament.  He said:

“We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.” – Samuel Adams July 4th, 1776

The revolution against the lawful authority of a government that became a tyranny was a direct affirmation that the King and parliament had usurped God’s Sovereignty over His People.  Refusing to comply, and then resisting the force being sent to subjugate them – was a solemn duty for the Christian, and it was that understanding and determination that led to the willing sacrifices to establish liberty on this land.

Sadly, human nature has not changed in 238 years, and neither has man’s desire to rule over others.  America was an anomaly in all written human history, yet today we willingly have surrendered ourselves to the very system that has enslaved people since The Garden, submitting to a government that makes itself absolute ruler.  A free people should only ever remain beholden to the Supreme Governor of the Universe, not submitting itself to a tyranny that stands for overt sin, wickedness, corruption and greed.

Know this truth – a people who will not be governed by God, will be ruled by the tyranny of men. 

If we would be free indeed, then submitting to God first is our duty – and then to stand against any encroachment made against it by every and all means.

Our history gives us the clear blueprint of what we can and should do from this point forward, in resisting tyranny.    The tyranny we suffer today may actually be insidiously worse than what the Colonists endured, because so many refuse to see it as a tyranny.

C.S. Lewis adroitly notes the kind of ‘soft tyranny’ that Alexis DeToqueville warned about:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

The soft tyranny that we have allowed ourselves to live under is now morphing into a police state that has iron fists staged all over the nation.  We either refuse to comply and be ready to suffer the inevitable efforts of punishment by the illegitimate authority in the righteous cause of Restoring The Sovereign in our lives.  Or we surrender to the tyranny of men and the god they have erected to subjugate us.

Refuse. Defy.  Then, when the tyrants send agents of the state to force it’s will, Resist.

Will we cry “Give us Liberty or give us Death!” or will we cry “Give us the promise of bread so we can live!”??

It is up to us now to decide how we will respond to tyranny, for assuredly those in power have already decided how they intend to deal with you.

Over the Cliff Into Race War

BlackMob

Mobs of Black thugs rampage in malls across the country, black assassins kill cops, snipers fire on police, black activist vows to kill cops and “innocent White children”.

Media scrubs mention of race of perps and is silent or advocates upheaval, chaos and ‘ethnic cleansing’ by promoting the insane rantings of maniacs as legitimacy.

What we are witnessing, has all happened before in history.  Mayhem and violence in the streets that are said to be necessary to invoke ‘justice’.  History teaches this always happens before narcissistic Left-wing revolutionists attempt genocidal mass murder of a targeted people and/or the establishment of an oppressive dictatorship and police state based on that movement.  Radical change movements always stoke their agenda-supporting base to do mayhem and violence under the guise of ‘justice’ or ‘equality’ in order to advance the underlying political agenda, setting the stage for a regime who will institutionalize such behavior after wiping out the very groups who currently act as useful idiots for the end-game.  Hitler’s SA (aka: Brownshirts) are a prime example of how this tactic works.

History is repeating.  Only it is not European Jews who are the targets this time around, it is White Americans.

From Obama on down, the meme both subtle and overt has been to promote the antagonism and violence against those the ‘change’ movement seeks to punish, while at the same time looking at the cameras and appealing for ‘dialogue’ and ‘peace’.

The mainstream media, pretending to be innocent observers, are Advocates of this strategy, stoking and instigating the very mayhem and violence that leads to what history teaches is at our own door.

We are already in the midst of a race war, the beginnings of an Ethnic Cleansing, and most Americans have no clue or understanding of what is taking place all around us.  But lets take a gander at some information from just this week to help you see the picture more clearly:

New York Times: “Let the Fires Burn Until Every City is on its Knees”

They want peace. No really. And the New York Times is just a dispassionate observer looking for reform and change. Not mass murder.

But Nicholas Kristof had one of his “Take the Mask Off Moments” when the radical left shows how ugly and unhinged it really is despite its facade of dinner parties and book clubs and that its media outlets promote violence.

And so he invited readers to send in poems about the usual stuff. Bunnies. Flowers. Killing all white people and burning America to the ground. And the emphasis was not on the bunnies and flowers.

Here’s a deranged screech of hate/incitement to violence that the leftist paper of record saw fit to run.

Angel Butts, a white woman married to a black man and the mother of “two beautiful brown babies,” said she hadn’t written a poem in 20 years.

Here’s what Angel Butts and Kristof had to offer.

And so, as Ferguson burns, I hear the voice inside me chant, “Burn on…”
Let the fires burn until every city, every town is on its knees.

Great plan. Why doesn’t Butts start with her house? Or the New York Times HQ. But of course it’s easy to cheer torching other people’s homes.

Kristof reminds us once again that the protests are as violent and bigoted as any Klan rally and that their supporters and cheerleaders are violent racists, thrilling to beating up convenience store workers and burning buildings.

That is what the left has always been. That is what it always is. That is why there is no living with the left. You can’t live with people whose idea of social justice is killing you and burning your house down.

Like so many of the violent leftists parading around with the #BlackLivesMatter gang, Angela Butts is a social sciences academic lecturing on Sociology at Rutgers and the College of State Island Is Rutgers aware of her support for violence and mass murder?

Black ‘Warrior’ Promises to Kill Cops and ‘Innocent White Children’ 

Facebook threats lead police to his basement firing range.

A man who built a firing range in the basement of his south suburban home took to Facebook and proclaimed his intention to murder police officers and “innocent white children” as a New Year’s resolution, according to authorities.

(snip) When police arrested him, Woodfin also told officers the “streets would run red with blood,” according to a Tribune source. Woodfin’s booking photo shows him clad in an orange t-shirt with the words revolution, freedom, justice, equality, criminal and other phrases written in marker on the front.

“We are organizing right now. The movement is real. This must happen for change to occur,” Woodfin posted on Facebook on Dec. 8….“Keep your kids close to you.”

He went on to write that he intended to kill police officers and white children. His Facebook profile has since been removed from the website.

 

“Go Ahead And Shoot Me… I’m Not Afraid Of White People.”

On the same day assassinated New York City Police Department officer Rafael Ramos was laid to rest in New York City, Madison, Wisconsin police were forced to draw their guns on a drunken thug who had attempted to rob a couple in a drugstore parking lot.

Payne said a 22-year-old woman had walked out of a Walgreens, and as she neared the car in which her boyfriend was waiting, a man was “hovering” and pointing what appeared to be a gun at her 25-year-old boyfriend.

…When the gun holder realized the woman was nearing the car, he aimed the laser lighter at her. This prompted the boyfriend to go for his own loaded weapon.

Thompson then reportedly said: “Go ahead and shoot me, I’m not afraid of you, I’m from the south side of Chicago and I’m not afraid of white people.”

The concealed carrying citizen was apparently enough of a gun enthusiast to realize that the thug wasn’t armed with a real weapon, and resisted the urge for a “free shot” at the allegedly drunken criminal.

Instead they called police, who arrived and took Quincy R. Thompson, 19, of Madison into custody on a number of charges. The laser-pointer was found nearby, suggesting that Thompson was at least marginally smarter than Tamir Rice, and ditched the toy weapon before police arrived. Thompson did threaten to blow up the city and “kill cops” when taken into custody.

 

Black Mob Violence at Christmas, All Over the Country

Holidays are a special time for practitioners and deniers of black mob violence. The Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day and of course New Year’s are among the most popular.

But not Christmas. Not usually. Not until this year: Black mob violence and resentment erupted across the country during the 72 hours before, during and after Christmas. And not the “carry signs and send out a press release” kind of political violence.

This year’s Yuletide racial violence was more spontaneous. More deadly. More old school.  Not connected to the recent political protests over Mike Brown, Eric Garner and fill in your favorite atrocity that racist police inflicted on black people For No Reason What So Ever.

Let’s start in a small town near Houston called Texas City, where hundreds of black people decided to celebrate Christmas Night at a party promoting “Hood Night.’

Near midnight, one of the patrons found himself in the parking lot, shooting a handgun. When police arrived, he was shooting toward the crowd and ignored orders to drop the weapon.

That is when Hood Night got real: The man with the gun turned towards police and they shot him dead. At least that is what the nightclub owner told local news stations after he reviewed the footage from his security cameras.

And what is Hood Night without a riot? “Police had to dispatch reinforcements after some people in the crowd starting throwing rocks at officers and police vehicles,” reported the local Fox affiliate.

The dead man’s mother and sisters said he was a good person and not prone to violence and people should not believe the police or witnesses or videotapes or anything else because the 20-year old man had recently graduated from high school and was getting his life together.

Next stop, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Christmas night: Police responded to a large group of black people fighting and destroying property at a nightclub. When police suggested to Aderito Andrade that he refrain from the violent behavior that he appeared to be exhibiting, he declined.

Andrade punched one cop in the face, knocking him out. Then he assaulted another.

By this time, the crowd of 50 to 100 black people was fully aware of the injustice of trying to arrest a man who had just attacked a police officer, so they responded in kind by attacking a female cop:

“Police said during the officers’ struggle to arrest Andrade, a large group of people surrounded the officers and began yelling obscenities,” reported Channel 12 news.  “A third officer was kicked several times by men in the group. Police then sprayed the crowd with pepper spray, causing them to disperse.”

In San Antonio, police responded to a noise complaint at a party. When they found the host, “things got out of hand,” said the Fox affiliate. “Instead of helping the officers, he stepped aside and into the middle of the crowd and began yelling things about the police,” Sgt. Joe Mckinney said.

That is when party-goers started punching the police and throwing rocks and bottles at them. Several black people were handcuffed. One of the people who threw the party was charged with inciting a riot.

But this all happened a few days before Christmas, so maybe it does not count as part of this Holiday roundup.

Off to Chicago, the day after Christmas: The Navy Pier hosted a holiday gathering called Winter WonderFest. During the party, 100 to 200 black people fought, raged, rampaged, destroyed property and fired guns.

In almost every episode in this report, people said guns were fired, but police said they were not. Unless someone got shot.

Back at Chicago’s most popular tourist destination, Navy Pier, one pregnant woman was injured and taken to the hospital. Five black people were arrested.  For a fuller picture of the holiday chaos, let’s turn to Chicago’s most reliable source for crime news: The Second City Cop Blog, a must read for law enforcement in the area. Or for anyone who wants a realistic account of black mob violence there. A few comments:

“It wasn’t a disturbance, it was a battery in progress. It wasn’t 50, it was more like 1000. There was also a report of a man with a gun and shots fired, although never verified. Not to mention a call for teens smoking weed in the Imax theater.”

Said another:

“Every race is getting sick and tired of the black teens running around acting like thug fools. No black mommas coming out to condemn their actions. The media continues to conceal the race of the thugs…although they mention the race of every white officer and every unarmed and armed black “victim.””

And one more:

“Got love it a large group of blacks male and female got to an area where it’s mainly white and they cause all this damage. Does the news report how this group hurt white citizens???”

The  following day, police shut down early Chicago Ridge Mall after hundreds of black people were creating mayhem in the food court.  One mall worker told the Chicago Sun Times that the disturbance was a “riot.”

Soon after the mall was evacuated, a Facebook page that tracks Chicago fire department calls posted: “Approximately 30 minutes ago Large fight inside the mall at 95th & Ridgeland involving around 500 people. Large groups on public transportation now headed east on 95th approaching the area of 95th & Pulaski. CPD has alerted all districts up to the Dan Ryan Red Line Station.”

Like Jacob Marley explaining to Scrooge, this holiday tour is just getting started. Let’s be on our way to the Monroeville Mall near Pittsburgh, the day after Christmas. Prior to this Yuletide riot, this mall was chiefly known as the setting for the 1978 zombie movie classic, Dawn of the Dead.

The day after Christmas, as many as 1000 black people descended on the mall and chaos, violence, property destruction, defiance, and other mayhem ensued, much of it on video.

So much so even the local news anchors had trouble believing what they were seeing. Two people were hurt and no one was arrested.

Despite the video evidence, police and mall officials tried to downplay the widespread violence. Commenters at local web sites insisted on some truth instead:

Said Kayla Valerina to WTAE:

“I was a witness of a teenage boy get jumped in JC Penny’s while I was shopping. He was kicked until he had bruises all over and probably a concussion. They took things such as his phone and things he had bought. I called 911 later bringing cops to the mall before everything went crazy.”

Said another: “Pictures and VIDEOS are worth a 1000 words….So if you think I am racist for this comment …..then you are a special kind of Stupid.”

Off to the Wolfchase Mall in Memphis: Basically the same as the Monroeville Mall, except the crowd of 250 black people was smaller. Though many in the area say racial violence has become an every day fact of life in Memphis, and this is just the latest example.

Said Frank G Bilbro to a local paper:

“Wolf chase will soon go the way of the Mall of Memphis, Raleigh Springs and Hickory Hill malls. Ghetto will take over and no decent person will want to go there. It will happen slowly at first with one store closing, then another and another and no retailers to take their place. Wolfchase will become an empty hulking monument to lack of decency and lawlessness.”

In Sacramento at the Arden Fair mall, a large group of black people were fighting and destroying property first in the food court, then outside. First upstairs, then downstairs, lasting several hours.

Police closed the mall 90 minutes early at 7:30 p.m. the day after Christmas and hauled twodozen people away in handcuffs, said KCRA News.

One police spokesperson did tell Fox 40 that this kind of violence around the holidays is normal because of “heightened emotions.”

In Davenport, Iowa — yes, Iowa — two days after Christmas, 10 police were called to the NorthPark mall to break up a group of black people engaged in a “large fight.” Three were arrested for various charges including rioting, assaulting a police officer and interfering with a police officer.

Police broke up the riot with pepper spray.

On Twitter, Shonnie warned them about acting the fool: “While yall are at northpark make sure not to have a crowd b/c the mall cops are petty & will make yall leave.”

But they did not listen.

In Orlando the day after Christmas, a group of black people were fighting inside a Publix grocery store. One person was shot, several fled.  A man only identified as Eric said he saw the suspects flee. He told the Orlando Sentinel: He “was not surprised by the gunfire: “I’ve lived here for a long time. I’ve seen a lot.”

No one was arrested.

In Nashville two days after Christmas, and just a few hours after a visit from both the Notre Dame and LSU football teams in town for the Liberty Bowl game,  150 black people fought, destroyed property, and rampaged through the Opry Mills Mall. Initial reports place two people in jail and one in the hospital.

Early news reports were sketchy, but Twitter was full of eyewitness accounts: “Wow! Just left Opry Mills Mall!,” said Amy Dulaney. “The Teenagers running amok, fights breaking out, kids running in groups from one side to the other! It was getting crazy! We were in Fossils and it got so bad the manager closed the doors to his store! 4 blue lights passed by as we were leaving! Crazy times!”

At Independence, Missouri, near Kansas City on the day after Christmas, “Independence Center locked down some stores early Friday night after large groups of youths congregated at the shopping mall and some fights broke out, ” said the Kansas City Star.

Hundreds of black people were fighting in the mall, outside of the mall, and for blocks in several directions away from the mall. Some of it on video.

More from The Star:

“Ashley Jones of Independence had just finished eating with friends at Applebee’s when they walked out about 8:20 p.m. and saw multiple police cars. One officer opened his trunk to retrieve a large gun, Jones said.

“We said, ‘Is it that bad?’ And he said, ‘Better safe than sorry,’” Jones said.

Then they saw a second officer getting a gun from his trunk. That officer told them a riot had broken out.

“We heard screaming and yelling, and we took off running,” Jones said. “It was very scary.”

At least one congressman can say “I told you so.”  That would be former mayor of Kansas City, Emanuel Cleaver. When last year, the Kansas City Council discussed imposing a cufew to curtail the regular and frequent black mob violence at the upscale Country Club Plaza, Cleaver advised against it: “All we are going to do is make a lot of black kids angry,” he said. “And they will just take out their anger someplace else.”

That dude is a psychic.

The Star disabled comments for the story.

To top off the holiday racial violence, twitchy.com assembled a curious collection of Tweets from black female rapper Azealia Banks.

Banks might not be the biggest rapper in the world, but with 580,000 followers on Twitter, she is far from the smallest. Her latest cause is forcing white people to pay black people reparations for slavery and racism and for general purposes.

Throughout the holidays she was urging her followers to track down the descendants of slave owners and do all sorts of bad things to them.

Which sounded like a pretty good idea to James DeWolf Perry, well known among the PBS set: “Executive Director of the Tracing Center, James DeWolf Perry has devoted a major portion of his life to educating Americans about the horrors of slavery. He was “nominated for an Emmy Award for his role as the principal historical consultant for our PBS documentary, Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North.”

He wanted to get on the Azealia Banks love train and told her so in a tweet: “I’m a white person who agrees with everything you’re saying about history, and about racial reality today.”

Azealia was not feeling the love: “@JDeWPerry someone should kick your ass, and punch you right in your stupid smiling cracker face.”

All of this is via the careful incitement, instigation and subtle encouragement from the Obama Regime, Eric Holder and their Praetorian sycophants in the government, entertainment and media.  This is now gone beyond blowing off steam and protesting.  This kind of rampaging anarchy is the vehicle being used to further the ‘fundamental transformation’ into a third world dictatorial hell-hole that has been designed for us.

The MOMENT a single white person defends themselves from this kind of mayhem from the feral black thug welfare mobs, the media and the Obama regime will have their cassus belli, and a crack down will begin in earnest.

I can say that, because history teaches us that this is exactly what tyrannical regimes and their ideological hordes do.
