America Doomed To A Fate Worse Than What History’s Lessons Teach

The-Fall

History and human nature display the certain doom for any semblance of an American Representative Republic from ever returning.  Rome’s Fall would be a better fate for us than what is now coming.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  – George Satayana

““When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure. There is nothing new in the story. It is as old as the sibylline books. It falls into that long, dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind. Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong–these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.” – Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 2 May 1935

To quote the scriptures to emphasize the point the two men above made if you believe that God is the same yesterday, today and forever:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. – Hosea 4:6

Because America has not only forgotten God and declared His Laws and Ways to be evil, criminal, racist and discriminatory, it has also the notorious distinction that the bulk of it’s citizens and populace totally ignore history and human nature as completely irrelevant to them.  They see no reason to understand history outside of the revisionist pap being taught in every public school about how rotten this nation was at it’s foundation.

They do not care that the Republic has been fundamentally transformed into a despotic tyranny of which they are comfortable.  As long as Breads and Circuses are constantly maintained, it does not matter which emperor the factions clamor for: Caligula or Nero, Trump or Hillary – the end-result is exactly the same: ruins.  Willfully discarded by their own people for the empty promises of hope, change and greatness by those whom intend to rule, rather than govern.

The following essay opines that the best-case scenario for America at this point, is the fate of Rome.

For America, the Fall of the Roman Empire Is the Best Case Scenario

A lot of people, especially Millennials with degrees in Intersectional Climate Change Gender Studies, may not know it, but there is a way to anticipate what’s going to happen in the future. It’s not perfect, but it helps you make educated guesses about what’s next. It’s called “History,” and apparently no one in our ruling class has ever heard of it.

Roman history is especially applicable to America and all of Western civilization. The Romans had a good run, but then their moral, political, and cultural weaknesses grew insurmountable and the empire fell. Not all at once, mind you, but slowly – Rome fell long before the barbarians showed up at the city gates and started looting. Rome was powerful enough that its unworthy inheritors were able to live off the corpse for a few centuries before its enemies finished it off. In fact, Rome today still lives off the past. You go to Rome today primarily to see the ruins, and to shake your head over what the Romans just threw away.

The first phase of Roman civilization was the Republic, with something like a democracy (at least for some people) but with a definite rule of law, formal and especially informal. Noble Romans dedicated their lives to upholding these informal norms and values, the mos maiorum that formed the foundation of their society. The elite had its indulgences, but the expectation of a young noble Roman was that he would be highly educated, that he would serve Rome in its Army, and then move into politics and continue to serve in a series of governmental and diplomatic offices. And, if it came to it, he was expected to die for Rome.

But human nature asserted itself and the Republic became unstable, as factions developed and the mos maiorum was put aside for the sake of expediency. Populist politicians arose and agitated for the rights of regular Romans; the patricians were scandalized and fought back, sometimes killing the populist leaders. Eventually, some cunning Romans figured out that the armies they had been entrusted with were useful for more than crushing Rome’s foreign enemies. Sulla and then Caesar, frustrated by the checks and balances of the Republic – neither of them was a check and balance kind of guy – used their commands to take power. They were emperors in all but name; after the patricians tried one last time to reassert the Republic by getting stabby with Julius, the empire was born.

And thus began a period of glory that was in reality merely a blip in the long trend line downward. With the Republic gone, there was an imperial bureaucracy to take on many of the responsibilities citizens had once personally undertaken. The defense of Rome was outsourced to barbarians, who were allowed into Roman territory but never integrated. That, of course, went poorly. But Republican Rome’s inertia was strong enough to propel the Western empire on for another five centuries before it finally collapsed in exhaustion.

And now our civilization is likewise demonstrating its own shortness of breath, with Europe a few decades ahead of us on the downslope. Europe is utterly exhausted. It believes in nothing – its churches are empty and that hopelessness has translated into a demographic death spiral. Europe does nothing new and merely feeds off of the fading triumphs of the last century. Its politics are frozen in a cycle of failure even as the barbarians it unwisely invited into its midst establish their own internal kingdoms. The elite is no longer composed of citizen-soldier-politicians in the mode of the ancient Roman patricians, or even the modern Winston Churchill. Instead, it is all bland bureaucrats, terrified of losing power and using their regulatory cudgel to squelch the unrest by marginalizing the unsatisfied and outlawing the speech of the uncooperative.

But while the elite obsesses about stomping out “racism” and “sexism” and “cisnormativity,” the real enemy slaughters Europeans at will. But pretty soon the surviving Europeans’ waning survival instinct will kick in and they will notice that Muslim terrorists are not running free in Putin’s Russia. Then they too will reject the chaos of their failing Republic for strongmen, and their course will be set.

Here at home, the left has tossed out our own American mos maiorum, with Obama leading the charge to disregard the norms and customs that he finds far too constricting. Obama is the poster child for the ruling class’s decline. He is poorly educated – internalizing your commie prof’s clichés and lies does not make you educated even if your degree says “Harvard” – and utterly without any personal investment through service to his country (Obama in the military? That’s a laugh. Do they make camo mom pants?). Of course he has no respect for our norms and customs – he does not know anything about them and he has no personal investment in them. He has no business running anything, as he has amply demonstrated during perhaps the most damaging presidency since James Buchannan’s.

Led by pedestrian street agitators like Obama and his equally undistinguished cohort of leftist allies, the left has gleefully chipped at the foundations of our American Republic, not understanding that our society is not static. They cannot disregard the rules and expect the rest of us to keep obeying them. Oh, some try – the GOP establishment’s supine response to Obama can be understood as a desperate gambit to try and preserve the old ways. They hope – without basis – that Obama is merely a blip and that after he flies off into his narcissistic sunset in a gas-guzzling jet things will go back to normal. Their strategy is passive. They want to wait him out.

But the rest of us don’t want to wait and see if that happens. We want to respond. And that’s why we have two very different candidates promoting two very different responses. We have Ted Cruz, who is promoting radical action to return to the American Republic, with a focus on the Constitution. He is the true American mos maiorum candidate.

And then we have Donald Trump, who cares nothing for norms and customs and embraces raw power much as Obama and the left do, only he promises to protect the interests of a different constituency. He’s a would-be Caesarean strongman/savior, though to analogize him further to Julius Caesar is to insult the concept of analogies. Trump is a vulgar fool milking phony populism for power, best understood as a particularly tacky Graachi. Unlike them, Trump is both ignorant and a coward, but like them, if he does get elected president, he will be cut off at the knees by the patricians of the establishment.

Hillary Clinton is an even more anti-Republic candidate. Like Trump and Obama, she cares nothing for anything but power. Another sub-par mind trading off her degrees from a half century ago, this unaccomplished, bitter harridan lacks the wisdom to chart a course that avoids aggravating our society’s already gaping wounds. Instead, she’ll pour salt into them for no reason other than her own delight at asserting power, gleefully poking at normals with initiatives like forcing women to accept men into their bathrooms and trying to disarm the law-abiding. Inevitably, she will be stunned when she finds her actions greeted by a reaction she cannot control, and the American Republic will disappear as her rule by power is replaced by her opponents’ rule by power. Oh, we may get a good emperor or two along the way, but history tells us how this story ends.

Someday, after the gloom of the next Dark Age clears, some tourist from a society that has rediscovered liberty will look at the ruins of the Capitol and shake his head at the fools who did not realize what they were throwing away.

Liberty Lost Is Never Regained

Liberty-Lost

American Christians by and large apparently cannot read the signs of the times.  Tribulation is at our door and a lukewarm church is blind and infected with a fatal case of Normalcy Bias.

The following essay is from a sermon I had given on the July 4th weekend.  It is a very long read, as it was a 90 minute sermon but it is what the lukewarm church in America needs to hear at such a time as this.

***

This is not going to be pleasant message and oftentimes the truth is not pleasant. I make no apology for it.

I did not feel like celebrating the 4th of July.  Instead I grieved, in anger and bitterness.  I’ve known for awhile now in my spirit that America as we knew her is over, and now given the last few weeks, a few more are beginning to see what I have warned about for years.

Liberty has been lost brethren.  Tyranny and persecution are now our future, indeed it is here – and we brethren, have grown comfortable with it. America has become an unfaithful and wicked nation that has turned it’s back on God to go after lusts of the flesh and the mind.  It has done what not even the pagan Romans had dared to do.  NO NATION on earth, not even Sodom and Gomorrah CHANGED the institution of marriage into a perversion of marrying two men or two women to engage in sanctioned homosexuality as a LEGAL RIGHT and have given it legal supremacy.

This nation has thrown liberty, which was the gift from God, back into His face, and spit on Him saying “We do not want to be reminded of You”.   Meanwhile the vast majority of Christians in this nation, have either sat on our hands in indifference and apathy OR joined hands with the homosexual agenda out of either agreement with the agenda or fear of what the mob will do in concert with the government for daring to oppose it.

Given what has transpired of late including the recent rulings that have come down from the high court – how can any of us be in a celebratory rule and lie to ourselves that we are free??  Are we unable to read the signs of the times?  Do we not know what that ruling and the several other ridiculous rulings from the High Court mean for us?

July 4th was not a time to celebrate, but to call to memory the righteous indignation of our forefathers at the lawless actions of tyrants. It should have been a time to remember the fact that though they did not want war – no sane man wants war – our forbears were willing to have war if that was what it was going to take to remain a free, self-governing people, sovereign under Almighty God.

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” – The Declaration of Independence

Sadly, Christians in this nation have allowed themselves to become illiterate of both the bible and history by thinking that there is nothing a Christian should be willing to fight against or die for.  Brethren will not like what I have to say in this message.  I am raining on their parade, letting the air out of their balloons.  Like most Americans they do not want to grieve or be reminded of our national wickedness that impels us to mourn what trust we have betrayed; what principles and laws we have allowed to be trampled and the blood of patriots that we have chosen to ignore.

It is a time to ask ourselves, and each other: What exactly are we willing to do to resist wickedness and tyranny?  Are you getting used to this ‘new normal’?  Are you resting your hope on the next presidential messiah to save us?

Well I got news for you: freedom as you knew it is over.  Life as you knew it is OVER.  Look at how much we have been transformed into in just a few years.  Look at what we have grown comfortable into accepting as our new normal! It’s 1936 and a whole nation is seig heiling fundamental transformation while being set against one another for the sake of those in power.  But no one likes negativity – I am told.  No one wants to hear doom and gloom.  If that is the case, then this people are not interested in hearing the truth.  This people are become the epitome of

Isaiah 30:9-10:

For this is a rebellious people, false sons, Sons who refuse to listen To the instruction of the LORD; Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”; And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right, Speak to us pleasant words, Prophesy illusions.

Some have said to me ‘all this woe and tribulation that is coming has to happen so let’s just sit on our hands and watch what is about to unfold upon us – God will spare us pain and be our Rock and shield’.  How utterly naive. As if they are going to be sitting in recliners munching on popcorn and sipping soda as if the collapse of the country is going to be a pay-per-view event! Such people are not going to endure and tolerate watching the amount of suffering and horror that is going to come upon us.

I am here to tell you that while I can accept the fact that this nation is toast – what I was shown about myself in 2012 was a warning message that some Christian brethren understood I needed to get across to the church at large.  The message was that we American Christians are not ready to endure and suffer what brethren in the third world suffer every single day.  Having lived in a third world slum among persecuted Christians in 2012, watching those you love suffer seemingly without end or relief, was more than I was able to bear.  I have to say that when God turns His back on this nation to allow His righteous judgment of our consequences be meted out – it will test your faith to it’s breaking point and I daresay the vast majority of Christians in this nation are going to buckle and fold.  Heck – many are already buckling and folding and the real pain has not even come yet except upon a few!

Sadly, the church in America is not interested in hearing about what God is doing overseas, or what I learned about persecution.  They have a new fellowship hall and coffee shop to construct for their youth ministry.  They only want to hear positiveness and reinforced messages pertaining to health and prosperity.  Some have said they do not want funds being diverted from ‘their great work of God’ to go to things they are not in charge or have control of. Matthew 28:19-20 is limited to preaching to other Christians about how they are wrong in this practice or that doctrine rather than going into nations where the Name of Christ is relatively unknown.  They are too busy wanting to argue minute nuances of doctrine rather than notice that an entire society is about to collapse into ruin around them.

One of my personal passions in life before I was called to Mission work was attempting to talk about God’s Role in Our Founding and what real Liberty was as it was intended by our Founders.   But brethren, this people that we call our countrymen today HAVE NO CLUE WHAT REAL LIBERTY actually is. The definition of liberty in today’s America is the exact opposite of the definition that our Forbears intended for us.

Recently, five justices in black robes ignored God and Natural Law’s factual principles of life and told everyone that ordaining Homosexuality as a RIGHT was an essential liberty. The avalanche of totalitarian celebration clang from sea to sea.

The White House, supposedly representing the American government was bathed in colors not of the American flag but of a flag representing the celebration of what the Bible calls an ABOMINATION.  Homosexuals use the rainbow, the very sign of God’s covenant and mercy in the face of judgment, to desecrate His name, and flaunt evil, and it became a desecration covering the White House.   The “People’s House” at 1600 Pennsylvania was bathed in colors of the Homosexual flag to give Christians the middle finger. WHTwitterfag HomoWhiteHouse

Where is the collective outrage of the Faith in this country?  *Crickets* Collective outrage?  No.  Some griping and complaining in op-eds and on some talk radio – but outside of that – *crickets*.

A newfound Constitutional Right has been established in America ladies and gentlemen; the right for a man to put his penis in another man’s rectum, or two women to play with themselves and have the state declare that marriage. The ruling had NOTHING TO DO WITH RIGHTS if you read the dissentsIt was a political edict of ideologues who believe in their “supremacy” over God and us ‘little people‘ is divine.  They believe they are wiser than God who created the institution of marriage between a man and a woman and have instead decreed their abominable BEHAVIOR to be an inalienable RIGHT and SUPERIOR to God’s.

And now, the calls are already clamoring for people to have the liberty to engage in Polygamy, pedophelia Legalized incest and even beastiality.  The pandora’s box of liberty to do as your loins and imagination dictate – is now wide open. The country is falling over itself to celebrate and applaud deviant sexual acts and make it an unassailable institution just like Abortion.

 Isaiah 3:8-13

For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen,  Because their speech and their actions are against the LORD, To rebel against His glorious presence. The expression of their faces bears witness against them, And they display their sin like Sodom; They do not even conceal it. Woe to them!  For they have brought evil on themselves. Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, For they will eat the fruit of their actions. Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, For what he deserves will be done to him. O My people! Their oppressors are children, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray  And confuse the direction of your paths. The LORD arises to contend, And stands to judge the people.

Anthony Kennedy and SCOTUS have led the nation astray and have made wicked and crooked paths THE LAW of the land while DENOUNCING the Law of God. The Court has suggested in the majority opinion that God-ordained marriage “creates a climate of intimidation and offense” that deprived homosexuals of their rights.   This is “liberty” they say.  The “liberty to “love” whom and what they choose.

Liberty apart from God’s moral code brings on horrors.  Horrors like those experienced during the French Revolution.  While Robspierre was shouting “Liberty!” they were beheading everyone that was accused of having profited under the monarchy and who refused to bow down to the newfound ‘secular’ morality that swept France in the late 1700s.  Brethren, this is where we are headed in America.

Freedom is Slavery – War is Peace – Ignorance Is Strength wrote George Orwell in his novel 1984.  That upside down dystopian universe is now ours in the age of Obama. Tyranny is now said to be Liberty, and it’s no wonder considering calling tyranny liberty is nothing new:

“We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatable things, called by the same name—liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatable names—liberty and tyranny.” – Abraham Lincoln – April 18th, 1864.

Liberty for most Americans today means the freedom to have sex with whom they please, whenever they please.  Freedom means cable TV and beer and entertainments.  Freedom for some means a welfare check, or their perceived right to your wealth and to dismantle your evil ‘white privilege’.  What freedom means in todays America, is the freedom from shame, the freedom from guilt, the freedom from responsibility and especially the freedom FROM God and morality.  Unless of course you are white and Christian, then we are expected to be ashamed, guilty and bear responsibility for all the perceived woes our culture and our God have inflicted upon the nation.

I have been admonished that we should not waste time trying to reason with the wicked, that such is casting pearls before swine.  It was given as a justification to shut the doors and close the blinds of your church and “let the world fall”.  The problem with this line of thinking is in so doing we are ignoring the Devil’s devices.  You are not going to be safe and secure in your church.  The fact is that sin will never leave you alone.  Evil always demands equality and accommodation, and when it is given and accorded – evil CONQUERS and DOMINATES.  This is true of a soul as it is a society.

The refusal to confront evil and accommodate the liberty of a people to engage in wickedness and evil is bringing tyranny to those who stand for righteousness.  We now currently live in a country where our beliefs and faith are INCOMPATIBLE with the mainstream of a society that views our faith in our God as tyranny, as a “Christian taliban” and worse.  Freedom as we might define it is not the same as the rest of the country defines it. If you oppose homosexual marriage and “gay Rights, you will be declared a tyrant – even if you are not engaged in punishing those practicing it.  Those of us who revere the bible are going to experience the tyranny of those who will force us to accept their behavior upon us.  We declare our liberty to follow the scriptures unmolested and they declare their liberty from God to follow their lusts for the purpose of molesting us.

This is not a war on marriage, but a war on a way of life itself. A war to bring an entire society to ruin.  If one dares bring fact into the mix, they are shouted down, boycotted, driven from the town square and punished severely.  It is not enough that you keep quiet and to yourself – you must accept, love and accord the behavior that contradicts your faith and principles – or you will be punished.

Case-In Point: Sweet Cakes By Melissa.  Not only was this business in Oregon shut down, the owners Aaron and Melissa Klein were fined $160,000 for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake and then the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries issued a gag order, stripping the Kleins of their First Amendment Right of both Speech and Exercise of Religion  by banning them from speaking about their faith and their convictions to anyone in public, the media or on the internet about this case and the reasons they chose not to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding.

“The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries hereby orders [Aaron and Melissa Klein] to cease and desist from discussing, publishing, circulating, issuing or displaying, or causing to be published … any communication to the effect of their reasons for their crime of discrimination made against any person on account of their sexual orientation,” – Commissioner Brad Avakian  

Because they refused to remain silent and talk radio and Christian websites have been reporting on this heinous act by the tyrants – the State of Oregon has now DEMANDED the Kleins pay the $135,000 in damages by Monday July 13 or else the state of Oregon will place a lien on their home and force them to sell all their assets at auction to satisfy the fine.  Their donation page on GoFundMe was shut down because it was determined their fundraising effort was to support “an illegal purpose”. “After careful review by our team, we have found the ‘Support Sweet Cakes By Melissa’ campaign to be in violation of our Terms and Conditions and have removed this campaign,” Go FundMe officials stated to the Oregonian. 

President of the Family Research Council Tony Perkins stated “An Oregon judge made clear in no uncertain terms to the Kleins and all Americans that the state has the right to demand that citizens engage in activities that violate their beliefs and if they refuse, they will lose their ability to make a living,”.

“Liberty” now means you must take part in and celebrate homosexuality.  If you refuse – you will be punished.  Your wealth will be stripped from you.  Your ability to make a living will be stripped from you.  Your rights will be stripped from you.  Your property and possessions will be stripped from you. Welcome to the Mark of the beast. And we are comfortable with it!  We shrug our shoulders and ignore this outrage!  And this is how tyranny becomes institutionalized.

Not even King George III imposed such wickedness on the Colonists!  They would have picked up arms and gone hunting LONG AGO.  Yet Christians today apparently believe nothing is worth action beyond perhaps prayer and holding a candle.  We are often lectured by pastors and lay members that we must hate the sin, but love the sinner – yet they preach this to themselves ignoring the fact that society and government decree that to hate the sin is to discriminate against the sinner because the sin they engage in – is who they are.  So Christians no longer judge right from wrong and wickedness takes a foothold and gives birth to tyranny.

In such a society, wickedness is declared to be superior to Righteousness: Relationship “Experts”: Gay Marriages Are Superior to Heterosexual Marriages and Gay Parents Superior to Straight Parents

“Men and women are fundamentally different in certain ways, and those differences can pose major challenges in straight marriages. Same-sex couples, by definition, don’t face these obstacles, which is why recent research suggests that same-sex marriages aren’t just equal to straight marriages: in important regards they are superior.”

Woe to those who call good, evil and evil, good! declares Isaiah 5:20. But if you think you can use the bible as a shield in this wicked society and rest safe and secure, think again.  A rising chorus of ‘theologians’ and politicians are declaring that Jesus and The Father embrace Homosexual marriage, castigating those of us who revere God’s Word over the consensus of evil men who have compromised with the homosexual agenda.

Former Presidential national embarrassment and self-proclaimed born-again Christian Jimmy Carter declared that he believed that Jesus would embrace gay marriage.

“I think Jesus would approve of any love affair that was honest and sincere, and was not damaging to anyone else. And I don’t think that gay marriage damages anyone else.” Carter said.   

We might laugh at that – but this quote is now being cited as superior to scripture!  Marxist politicians and homo agenda groups are demanding Churches REVISE the bible and are suing bible publishers to strip any and all negative references of homosexuality out of scripture – citing it is against the law now that SCOTUS has ruled.

How long before we see mass bible burnings in America?? You think I’m kidding? Look at the mob insanity of ripping down the Confederate Flag and digging up the graves of dead generals spreading like wildfire throughout the country.  It will not be long before the “hate speech” of the bible is set ablaze in frenzied rallies in such an atmosphere.

How many of us truly believe it is better to obey God than men?  Your test of whether you really believe that beyond acknowledgment is coming soon, and judging by the fruits of how many churches are capitulating to homosexuality – I think the answer is going to be very few of us willing to obey God rather than “the law” and the agenda.   I mean, where is the big middle finger to tyrants?  Or is that “judging” and being “too mean” and “unChristian”??  I am certainly glad our Founders were not the lukewarm cowards the church in America has become.  I cannot count the number of times I have had Romans 13 thrown in my face to insist that refusing to follow “the Law” is rebelling against God, as if Man’s “laws” trump the Almighty God Jehova’s Supreme Laws.  Our Founders were not so blind:

“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it; he is obligated to do so.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God” – Benjamin Franklin

Christians today however, lie to themselves and say they must reflect Jesus by being more ‘caring’ and more ‘accommodating’.

The world’s largest Southern Baptist university, Baylor, on Tuesday dropped language in its sexual misconduct policy that disciplined those who engaged in homosexual acts, a change the socially conservative school said better reflects its values as “a caring community.”  Baylor has removed “homosexual acts” as a punishable offense in its sexual misconduct policy, an official said. However, The policy continues to mandate disciplinary action for sexual assault, incest, adultery and fornication.”

Anyone catch the disconnect with logic there?  Adultery and fornication are still mandated for disciplinary action, but homosexual sex – putting a penis in a man’s rectum is “caring” and not punishable?

The Southern Baptists for crying out loud!

And this Because money trumps truth and because this people WANT to believe the lie. This people will NOT risk persecution.  The church in America WILL NOT endure persecution with their faith intact exactly as I was shown in myself when confronted with it overseas.

Even now – Christians surrender their faith and principles before any real pain is visited!   The mere threat of punishment is enough to cause Christians to surrender and submit, then run to scripture to justify the surrender!  You are witnessing The Great falling Away.  Truth is now evil and wrong.  Evil is now good and wrong is decreed to be right. But what you see is just the tip of the iceberg now being prepared against those of us who disagree with elite consensus.

You and I brethren live in a totalitarian dictatorship whether we recognize it or not.  People disagree with me on this definition, they insist we simply have Authoritarians in control.   Not so.  There is a difference between the two as pointed out in my last blog entry: The New Totalitarians

Simply put, authoritarians merely want obedience, while totalitarians, whose rule is rooted in an ideology, want obedience and conversion. Authoritarians are a dime a dozen; totalitarians are rare.  The authoritarians are the guys in charge who want to stay in charge, and don’t much care about you, or what you’re doing, so long as you stay out of their way. Totalitarians are a different breed. These are the people who have a plan, who think they see the future more clearly than you or who are convinced they grasp reality in a way that you do not. They want obedience, of course. But even more, they want their rule, and their belief system, to be accepted and self-sustaining. And the only way to achieve that is to create a new society of people who share those beliefs, even if it means bludgeoning every last citizen into enlightenment. That’s what makes totalitarians different and more dangerous: they are “totalistic” in the sense that they demand a complete reorientation of the individual to the State and its ideological ends. Every person who harbors a secret objection, or even so much as a doubt, is a danger to the future of the whole project, and so the regime compels its subjects not only to obey but to believe.

Brethren this is where America has arrived.  We are become no different than the Germans of 1933-45, and horrors you cannot imagine are being planned.    It is NOT just Obama – but the entire Democrat-Leftists spectrum of evil now in charge of everything in this country. Don’t believe me?    Consider that we have already exterminated an entire generation of Americans in the womb for the convenience of having sex outside marriage without consequences because the Supreme Court ruled women had a right to murder their baby.   Why should we be surprised that the government now ruling us has implemented what will become relocation pogroms?  Will the church be as indifferent to this as it was to abortion mills and advocate groups selling aborted baby parts and organs?  I am not hopeful.

Nazis March Jews out of homes

But let’s continue with the comparison.  Nazis forced Jews out of homes for the good of the state.  Pol Pot forced everyone out of the cities to slave on farms .  Mao forced everyone into the cities so they can be controlled.  Obama is now ordered the same thing – under the guise of ‘racial and wealth diversity’.  Tyranny is always imposed for the ‘good’ of the people.

HUD Diversitysuburbanliquidation

Obama Introduces New Rules to Desegregate Every Neighborhood In America: cities and towns are now required to look for patterns of racial bias in local housing,  and publicly report the results and set goals to reduce wealthy white majorities in neighborhoods.  Julian Castro, secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development said  “This is the most serious effort that HUD has ever undertaken to do that, I believe that it’s historic.” 

This is a plan they have been working on since 2009 to eradicate the Suburbs and “Cleanse” the rural countryside – which they say must revert to it’s ‘undisturbed natural habitat’. Some point to Agenda 21 of the UN as the pretext for this.  Whatever it is, genocide and ghettos are coming folks.  The evidence is hiding in plain sight, right in front of you.  What is being followed is a Blueprint for how Marxist/Socialist Totalitarian societies exterminate entire segments of their population.

How could we celebrate a country that is devolving into something even worse than pagan Rome or Nazi Germany???  Are we just going to sit here and party on?  Thomas Jefferson answered that question, he said:

“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is Just, and His Justice cannot sleep forever”. 

No brethren – Justice is coming.  So is vengeance. But before that – tribulation for those of us who refuse to submit to what is coming – indeed it is AT OUR DOOR. The question for you is not whether you comply or resist. The question for you is whether you will resist or endure to the point of punishment and death with your faith intact.

We shouldn’t have celebrated a liberty we have allowed to be lost – We should GRIEVE for our betrayal of the trust given to us by God.   Grieve over the sins of this nation, and GRIEVE over the tyranny that we have helped erect over us by our indifference and our inaction as body.   We should Grieve over wickedness of the nation, because if we do not grieve now –   –  we are going to grieve when millions of our countrymen are  buried in mass graves and our children are stacked up like cordwood.

Some of you folks are wondering why I am discussing politics rather than our usual intensive study of the scriptures. I have discussed politics as a matter of setting the table so that the scriptures I am about to give you will have us reflect upon their timeliness for us today, right now. I want to show you that the bible is relevant to your everyday world – not just for those who want to play church.

You might be disinterested in politics, but you better understand that politics is interested in you.  To ignore it, is to accept and condone it – and eventually it overcomes and subjugates you.  But see – most do not want to consider the ugly truth, or look into what God says about the sin of the land.

I set the table as it were because God asks where the grief is over the sins of this land? Should we not sigh and cry over all the abominations being done around us?  Consider what God says in the scriptures about a nation of His People in the midst of wickedness and the onus He places on His Servants living in the midst of it.

Jeremiah 6:10 -18 

To whom can I speak and give warning?   Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear.  The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it. But I am full of the wrath of the Lord, and I cannot hold it in.  “Pour it out on the children in the street and on the young men gathered together; both husband and wife will be caught in it,and the old, those weighed down with years. Their houses will be turned over to others, together with their fields and their wives, when I stretch out my hand against those who live in the land,” declares the Lord. “From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit. They dress the wound of my people as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace. Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush!  So they will fall among the fallen; they will be brought down when I punish them,” says the Lord.

This is what the Lord says:“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But you said, ‘We will not listen.’ Therefore hear, you nations; you who are witnesses, observe what will happen to them. Hear, you earth: I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their schemes, because they have not listened to my words and have rejected my law.  

Verse 26  Put on sackcloth, my people,and roll in ashes; mourn with bitter wailing as for an only son, for suddenly the destroyer will come upon us.

The Destroyer is at Hand for America brethren.  But we are stuck in a Normalcy Bias of complacency – refusing to see what is happening around us and what it will portend for us and our children.

I am often told when giving these warnings “Those verses are not my Jesus, Not my God!” they say “He does not expect us to mourn and wail, but to rejoice!  To be Glad In Him!”  “You preach the angry God of the Old Testament Who is done away!”  How illiterate such brethren have allowed themselves to become!  Have they never read John 1: 1-3 and verse 14?  Do they not know Jesus WAS the God of the Old Testament?  We so desperately want to see God as a happy Grandfather in the sky, we refuse to see Him as a loving Father who is angry beyond measure at the amount of trouble we are bringing upon ourselves.

When catastrophe happens, when evil rises – Christians in America are complacent and the only thing Christians will do in this society when disaster strikes is light candles and pray.  What about standing up and fighting back?  Oh no!  That is Extremist.  That is not what Jesus would do!  Oh really????   When Goliath came against Israel did King Saul or David call for a prayer meeting and a candlelight vigil??  No.  I think when God’s Armies were insulted, five smooth stones were fetched from a riverbed for a purpose that Christians today think God never approved of.

AMOS 6: 1-7

Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria, you notable men of the foremost nation,to whom the people of Israel come!   You put off the day of disaster and bring near a reign of terror.   You lie on beds adorned with ivory and lounge on your couches.  You dine on choice lambs and fattened calves.  You strum away on your harps like David and improvise on musical instruments.  You drink wine by the bowlful and use the finest lotions, but you do not grieve over the ruin of Joseph.     Therefore you will be among the first to go into exile; your feasting and lounging will end.

Brethren – our prosperity and blessing from the Lord is at an end.  It’s over.  Get that through your skulls.  When the next 9-11 or worse hits us, God is NOT going to come to our rescue.

“Jesus will always save us!” you might be screaming at yourself.   Oh really?  God is ALWAYS going to save us from calamity?  Try telling that to our brethren in India or Christians in Mosul or in Syria – oh wait – there are no more Christians in Mosul – they have all been exterminated and are being run out of the country.  How can we lie to ourselves that such things cannot happen to us as it does for brethren who are more faithful in the face of trials and persecution than most of us have ever faced?  God has every reason to forsake us – since we forsook Him as a nation and threw Him out of our culture, our Schools and our Courts.

Proverbs 1:24-32

But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you— when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,when distress and trouble overwhelm you. “Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me,  since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord. Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them;

We are being destroyed brethren.  Only 10% of Americans know what the 1st Amendment protects.  Did you know that?  According to CNS news, Only 19 percent of American adults know that the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights guarantees the freedom of religion, according to a new survey by the Newseum Institute.  Only 10 percent know the First Amendment guarantees the freedom of the press.    And 33 percent of Americans have no idea at all what rights the First Amendment guarantees.

Hosea 4:6 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Those are scary words if you meditate on them.  HIS people are destroyed because they reject knowledge and instead destroy their history and heritage to accept wicked knowledge and falsehood disguised as enlightenment.  God says He will reject US from being HIS Priests.  I see that application to us every bit as much as it applied to Ancient Judah. I see these verses as having application to us, a former Spiritual Nation of Israel.

That is what Pastor John Cotton decreed the Mayflower Pilgrims to be when he prayed as they set sail from England. I bet most of you never knew that is what the Pilgrims understood they were establishing on these shores.

God directed my attention to this following verse – and this is why I was urging lamentation and grieving over the 4th – because I think this is what has been declared against us by The Lord God Almighty in the Third Heaven:

Ezekiel 9:3-11

Now the glory of the God of Israel went up from above the cherubim, where it had been, and moved to the threshold of the temple. Then the Lord called to the man clothed in linen who had the writing kit at his side and said to him, “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.”  As I listened, he said to the others, “Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion.  Slaughter the old men, the young men and women, the mothers and children, but do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the old men who were in front of the temple.

BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY GOD SAYS.  God told those charged with slaughtering the wicked to BEGIN at the Church – Our Lord’s House!  Why would God tell them to start at HIS SANCTUARY??   Because they were charged by God to keep the society on the moral path and to uphold God’s Laws.  Instead those in Jerusalem perverted it and partook in grievous evil while paying lip service to God.

Of interest to us is that our Founders wrote that it was THE CHURCH in America that was responsible for keeping the culture upright. We have allowed the nation to become perverted and did not stand up against evil when we should have.  Brethren, this charge falls on us today.  We FAILED in the same way those in Judah did!  So the persecution that is coming is part of the Judgment the Lord will pronounce upon us.  And do not think you are going to get raptured us out of here before we suffer the consequences we have sown as a people.  Did The Lord save all your brethren in Syria and Iraq and Egypt from horrors you cannot even wrap your mind around??

No.  Understand that we did not love liberty enough to stand up for it beyond lip service as a body, so it has been taken from us because of our complacency and indifference to evil.

Into tribulation we go, and it will come from the hand of our own people. This people has decreed that they will not be governed by God, so instead we will be ruled by the tyranny of men.

And there is no getting liberty back. Not by voting, not by calling your politician, not by writing the hacks in Washington.  Not by protests or Article V conventions (If they do not follow the Constitution now, how can anyone think they will follow any new Amendments added to it?) It’s called tyranny for a REASON.  The rulers are a law only unto themselves!

Repentance was our only chance at staving off judgment. – but the churches in this country by and large will not allow such things to be discussed among their members.  They do not want to hear it.  They did not want to hear about mission work – neither do they want to hear about programs to help those with porn addiction.   In such conditions liberty cannot be regained, and that is not just my assessment – but a Founding Father’s as well:

Your Description of the Distresses of the worthy Inhabitants of Boston, and the other Sea Port Towns, is enough to melt an Heart of stone. Our Consolation must be this, my dear, that Cities may be rebuilt, and a People reduced to Poverty, may acquire fresh Property: But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it. – John Adams July 7th, 1775 Letter to Abigail

I believe he was prophetic here – plus he was making that statement based on history, human nature and the scriptures by which he was intensely devoted to studying. WE CAN NEVER REGAIN IT.  If we reject a gift from God – how can we expect Him to hand us another one just like it?

Persecution is coming brethren – indeed it is already being institutionalized.  It is NOT enough that we obey our overlords in DC and the wicked mob who empower it – we must be forced to LOVE and make their utopia OUR GOD – or we must be punished and eradicated.  They will erase our entire existence and indeed they have PLANNED to do this!

You can’t work out a truce with tyrants. You can either give in or stand up to them. There’s nothing else. Do you not see what has been set up against us?  That the entire nation has been turned against biblical faith and adherence, that it has been turned against the wealthy?  That is has been turned against it’s own history and heritage?  Turned against those of declared ‘privilege’?  That it is being invaded by third world squatters and our enemies abroad are being armed at your expense?

Obama and the oligarchy in Washington have made a pathway to citizenship for Mexican Reconquinistas.  They have made a pathway to settle Middle Eastern Muslims from Somalia to Syria throughout the country.  They have made a pathway for ghetto thugs to be housed in your neighborhood.  They have made a pathway for criminals to be released into society.  They have made a pathway to governing every minuscule aspect of your life at the same time they have opened the gates to the pathway for civil strife and conflict.  And now they have made a pathway for Iran to develop nuclear weapons and ICBM delivery systems, all at YOUR expense.  Does anyone here know what a Trojan Horse is?  No – it is not just computer malware.  It is the means by which a people welcome the agents of their own annihilation to be placed within their gates.

The Colonists were wise to consider the fact that they suffered the tyranny of the Crown for their sins as a people.  It is why the church pulpits during the 1750’s and 60’s were ablaze with messages of repentance, and it was from those same pulpits that the fire of liberty was stoked and the move towards Independence carried as a torch throughout the colonies.

Today we show our foolishness in refusing to consider we suffer Obama and the tyranny of our own government due to our national sins as a people.  Since the church refused to stoke a fire of repentance in the land for our culture – a torch is being brought against us to consume the nation.

The fires of civil strife are springing up all around us – not just in Ferguson, MO or Baltimore.  The media with subtle aid from our overlords and the Leftist apparatchiks are lighting the fuses of civil strife and violence:

 Obama’s Progressive America: Politico Calls for Ethnic, Cultural Cleansing of Southern Whites
“Northern progressives who joke about the U.S. jettisoning “Jesusland” and merging with Canada will not get their wish. But there is  hope: A combination of demographic change and generational change is weakening the ability of the old-fashioned South to skew American politics and culture in the future.  ”Minus the South, the rest of the U.S. probably would be more like Canada or Australia or Britain or New Zealand—more secular, more socially liberal, more moderate in the tone of its politics and somewhat more generous in social policy.  White Southerners are more likely than white northerners to respond to insults with increased testosterone and aggression, according to social scientists. According to the FBI in 2012, the South as a region, containing only a quarter of the population, accounted for 40.9 percent of U.S. violent crime.”

In short, the zeitgeist spreading throughout the country says that White Americans are MONSTERS that “must be dealt with if we hope to become a better society.  This is not limited to skin color, but also to the Christian faith.

CNN’s Sally Kohn offered yesterday the following remarks when discussing the Daily Beasts headline article The New Post-Homophobic Christianity – “Should anti-gay Christians be politically, socially and culturally ostracized? Should they be criminalized?   I sure hope so”.  

Genocides are built on this kind of rhetoric and the zeitgeist is rapidly growing and accelerating at the behest of the Ruling Class. There is no exception to history that when the ruling class of a people demonize specific group of people and their culture – that populace is subjugated and then eradicated. The demonization is done for the purpose of getting the larger society to applaud the removal of those the Ruling Class has targeted.  Every Marxist revolution requires blood in the streets and suffering in order for the people to applaud the iron fist to bring order.

The math is not hard folks.  Obama and the Left are drawing all evil to themselves.  They ally with our avowed enemies, they arm them, enable them and sow division and discord among us here at home.  A nation in civil strife is more easily destroyed from outside once it is sufficiently weakened from within.

Obama is Judgment upon us for our sins.  I am convinced He is The Destroyer.  He is suddenly upon us – and I fear for the faith to endure amongst us.  The time of tribulation is come for us now brethren.  There is no stopping it.

You cannot reason with it.  You cannot negotiate with it.  It will force you to comply, it will force you to surrender your faith – or you cannot make a living.  You will be enticed to surrender and love the regime for the mere promise of bread, and your neighbors will willingly turn you over for the same.   If you refuse – you are going to be punished.  It is already happening and we just sit here and give thanks that is not us.     Niemoller’s proverb on full display here now in America.

If Matthew 24 plays out here as I am thinking it will, you are going to be arrested, jailed, tortured and killed.  You and your families, your kids and grandkids.  This government has already categorized Conservative Christians in official documents as domestic terrorists. Look at how they empowered the IRS to destroy Conservative and Christian groups.

Understand that the life most of our brethren in the 3rd world have lived under is now come here to the USA.  ‘Start at MY Sanctuary” sayeth the Lord’. Read Matthew 24. It’s not pretty, but Jesus told us what will happen to His followers in the Last Days.   But we are are not ready to endure it.  I learned that painful lesson myself.  And if Judgment and horror and captivity are coming then we must trust in God and His Christ no matter what is horrors are happening around us or to us.  Do not lose your faith.  The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Matthew 10:21-33  

Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death, and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Satan, how much more will they malign you who are of his household? So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.  Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

The time is upon us where we are going to be asked or demanded to deny God, His Son, His Word – and follow “The Law” whatever that “law” says we must bow down to and obey.  Romans 13 will be thrown in your face as a justification to endorse and condone sin, or you will suffer consequences.  Your fiery furnace of Tribulation will have arrived.

Will you deny Yeshua by relenting and accepting the mark of their beast in your thoughts and then in your actions because you want to avoid being tortured into loving the state?  Do you think you can remain silent and just hide who you are supposed to be?  Can you put your light under a bushel to avoid persecution and still shine the light of the Gospel?  Hoping and praying that they overlook you?  Or are you going to stand up – acknowledge and proclaim the Lord before these wicked men and women REGARDLESS of the consequences?  Are you courageous, or a coward?  Be honest when you ask yourself this.  Will you bow down, or will you refuse – believing that God is strong enough to save you – but even if He does not – YOU STILL will refuse to comply with evil??

I was shown that when push came to shove, as an American with no experience with what our brethren suffer every day – I would get angry at God, be a coward and fold like a cheap suit.  I’m ashamed I got angry with God because He did not rescue our brethren like I expected – and I have repented of thinking God operates within my American prosperity worldview.  I ask for courage to endure what is coming – not that I be saved out of it, because I do not believe all of us are going to be saved out of it.  I never believed in the Rapture.  I believe Jesus meant what He said in Matthew 24.

Our Place of Safety in the wilderness in this country has come to it’s end – and the flood of evil and wicked people are at our doors – and our eradication is their intent unless we deny the Father and the Son and go along to get along thinking the crocodile will eat us last.

This is the ugly truth brethren.  No one likes the truth these days – as Orwell wrote

“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

We should be ashamed brethren at what we have allowed to be done to us.  Some have said to me that “The Founding Fathers would be rolling over in their graves”.  Very true, especially when their graves will be dug up and disposed of into mass unmarked trenches to satisfy the cleansing of our culture.   Our Second President already told us what he would do if we should betray the trust:

“Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.” – John Adams, April 1777 Letter to Abigail

I think that God Himself – is repenting that He made us a great nation, for even the church has been derelict in it’s commission and it’s duties in this country.  For this we should be ashamed  For this we should grieve.

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin. 

America has been found wanting in the balances and the handwriting is on the wall.  Pray for forgiveness, give thanks – and ask God to bless us with endurance, our time has come.

We must remember Romans 8:28 tells us All things work out for good – even horrors, and most of the time as we suffer – we cannot see that reality.  But if we rehearse it in our minds, knowing what Christ has told us in advance – our chance of enduring with our faith intact via strength from The Holy Spirit will see us doing Isaiah 58:1, proclaiming The Lord against a wicked and perverse generation and that steadfast commitment will take us into the Kingdom of God.

Historical lessons on where the Progressive/Marxist/Fascist Left  is taking America

The handwriting is on the proverbial wall in regards to what is coming at us – but most of you reading this will not believe it, or want to hear it.  Your liberal-leftist friends will laugh and declare this to be delusional.  Your other friends will think it ridiculous or impossible.

Yet history is screaming the warnings at us with an almost daily occurrence of parallels that make anyone who has properly read history realize something far worse than what happened last century is unfolding upon us.  An understanding that most willfully ignore – because they will not allow their minds to contemplate that such things are possible here, even though history teaches us they are playing out like a blueprint before you.

This is because in 6,000 years of recorded human history – human nature does not change.  Neither do the Principalities and Powers in High places that many in our “enlightened” society do not believe exist.

Henry Dampier.com has posted one of the most succinctly intelligent and historically urgent essays I have recently read regarding where this nation is headed.  It’s a hard read.  The writing is above your average sophistication, and I would assume he is doing so for reasons that I find familiar; proper English usage goes over the heads of most in our digital media culture today and the subject-matter is razor sharp, shredding sanguine notions that accompany Normalcy Bias.

Before you get started, I want to add to the prescient timing of Dampier’s essay – these headlines and news posts are all road signs leading to the destination Dampier illustrates with subtle aplomb:

Praise, from those of us excited to see any club of all-white all-men rendered extinct,

The end of white Christian America is nigh Common Core written for the purpose of ending “White Privilege” in the nation.

“Just being White is racist because your existential state of Living While White constitutes a form of racism in itself”.

Being Christian is automatically discriminatory, and therefore biblical Christianity must be banned.

Progressives respond to survey: “The only good Christian is a dead Christian.” ‘

Kill all the Whites’ was once unthinkable in places like Rhodesia and South Africa at one time not too long ago.  What happened to whites in those nations reveals that the current zeitgeist of vitriol in America towards Conservative Christians makes it clear that the Leftists are moving towards a similar goal .

The wholesale demonization of Christians and white Conservatives over the Restoring Religious Freedom Acts the past week is your canary in the mine.

Demonization programs always rapidly descend from boycotts, to empowering government seizures of wealth and property, followed by criminalizing existence and then, pograms of extermination. The goal is to eliminate the cited ‘problem’ to the planned utopia, and the Left is telling us daily whom they hate and whom must be considered a threat to the country.

This is how millions are wiped out in genocides, and the seeds being sown right now – are already germinating and will bloom sometime in the not-too-distant future.  ‘Kill Whitey’ will become just more than a slogan for ghetto blacks and race pimps.

It will become government policy.

UglyChristianKulak

Kill the Kulaks

Why have America’s leading organs of influence decided to demonize white, Christian men as the most uniquely evil group in the history of the world? Why is it necessary for students, especially of that ethnic group, to unpack their invisible knapsacks?

The answer is that these men are routinely targeted for politically-empowered looting, usually by their own wives, with the assistance of the state. This looting would not be morally palatable without a pervasive myth of uniquely white male evil. It would otherwise trip the moral alarms that might otherwise come up when dissolving a family for personal gain.

When the left says that they want to expropriate you (and later kill you) in increasingly less subtle terms, they are being entirely serious, and the dumbest mistake to make is to treat it as idle talk. They mean what they say. They will do what they say as soon as they have the political will and the numbers to execute it.

The growth in anti-white-male op-eds in influential magazines makes more sense when you look at the real lives of middle class men, which are often marked by either divorce or threatened divorce, which typically involves an enormous transfer of valuable assets from the man to his ex-wife. This expropriation would have been regarded as execrable even just 50 years ago, but with the assistance of a powerful guilt-myth, it goes down much easier.

The pre-existing myth can be used by lawyers and others to sway judges to the favor of their clients. If white men are assumed to be uniquely wicked, it becomes easier to weave their reported actions (whether true or false) into a legal case against that man, and then to use that case to deprive him of his children, assets, and honor.

The irony here is that men like Teddy Roosevelt, the founder of the Progressive party, were imperialistic white supremacists. However, this was within the framework of the ‘white man’s burden’ of uplifting the other races of the world. This part has stayed within the Progressive platform, and arguably the supremacy plank has stayed also, but in the form of creating a uniquely flagellating class, trained into self-loathing. The tragicomic part of this is that the successful uplift of African-Americans that TR brags about as a unique American success has been reversed by future more aggressively progressive policies.

The flagellating guilt complex is seen as furthering the international-uplift mission, but the Christian aspect has, in large part, been bumped off. The humility before God has become humility before the diversity instructor. The Fall from Eden has become the fall from a murky fall from racial grace. The space in life that would have been allocated towards the worship of God has instead been allocated to the hatred of the White race, although this co-exists simultaneously with a proclamation that race is a social construct that has no bearing on anything temporal.

Without Satan and the demons as scapegoats, White men and their pallor do a great job as stand-ins as the source of the world’s great historical and contemporary evils. The narratives catalog all the purportedly unique historical crimes of the White devil, and then close with some argument to seize the assets of that class, often combined with a demand for the denigration of that entire category of person.

It is not entirely useful to make the comparison to Nazis and their assignment of anti-Jewish math problems and the like in schools, because this program of retaliation is seen as a corrective for those sorts of things, in the same way that the Nuremberg trials were one-sided against the Axis, while ignoring the pervasive and open attacks on civilians by the Allies, in which civilian body counts were seen as success indicators.

It might be funny to bring up the Turks and how they got rid of the Armenians, but most people are unfamiliar with that, and in any case, unlike in the 16th and 17th century, ‘Turk’ is not a byword for ‘bad person’ — ‘White’ is. That is the cultural context in which the educated American classes are operating in. Reforming the image of the Kulak is not easy when every day, all the educated people learn that to hate the Kulak is to get in good with the authorities.

So, what is a Kulak to do? For one, you should take the language denigrating your ethnic group seriously, because calls for asset seizures are always presages to calls of physical liquidation. Once your liquid assets are seized, it is necessary to take your tough-to-move assets, and when you have nothing left to give, you are useful either as a slave or as a dead body.

If the moral trend can be reversed, by openly contradicting the story of [insert group here]’s perfidy, then good on you, but typically, once a state has begun the scapegoating process, it finds itself unable to back down from it — it has to see it to its logical conclusion. Physical resistance usually never occurs, because actors within states only begin these sorts of widespread demonization programs if there is unlikely to be any real physical resistance to it.

Similarly, whining slogans about ‘white genocide’ are meaningless when that sounds like a great idea to the people who want to expropriate you. The guilt-narrative is that White Christians are uniquely responsible for the post-1945 crime of genocide, and that retaliation is more than fair play. That chatter only works if they are actually amenable to that moral argument, and in fact, they think it would be a great thing, and have indeed cheered on such operations in countries like Rhodesia and South Africa.

Memorializing the Communist leader Mandela is practically mandatory in the US, just as veneration of various Communist revolutionaries was mandatory in the USSR.

No one cares — that, in fact, only enhances the support for the policy on the opposing side. In the same way that telling Turks that they are naughty for getting rid of the Armenians, the left just grins and laughs when you tell them that they are doing what they want to do, what they plan to do, what they are openly proud of talking about doing.

The cheeky proposal is to make like previously successful mass-exiles and to negotiate deportation between the state that wishes to get rid of the host population, and a state that could make use of it. The exile of the Huguenots from France to other Protestant countries throughout Europe is a good example of this sort of relatively peaceful ethno-religious cleansing. The more serious proposal is to break up the United States, due to incompatible moral visions of society among the differing members.

In this way, you could separate the states between those that believe Whites are demons whose sin requires punishment on this Earth, and those who believe that Whites are men to be judged by God and perhaps by other men when the time calls for it.

Much like Stalin rewarded journalists and minor authors with high prizes for authoring tracts against the Kulaks, our contemporary authorities award such prizes for demonizing our Kulaks. None of this will make much sense without a good understanding of the greatest, most terrible man of the 20th century, and this biography is a wonderful place to start.

Being able to credibly threaten this would be the only thing that could even begin to derail the de-Kulakization program in place. Once the authorities can no longer promise worthwhile prizes and status in return for mouthing words of hatred towards the White devil, the words will stop being spoken with nearly as much authentic fervor.

We should learn from history that negotiation with the terror is not possible — that is the road to the fate of men like the Girondists, moderates exterminated by the Jacobins. Taking the symbolic meaning of language seriously is important, because people must use strong symbols to arrange any project, either great or terrible.

When the left says that they want to expropriate you (and later kill you) in increasingly less subtle terms, they are being entirely serious, and the dumbest mistake to make is to treat it as idle talk. They mean what they say. They will do what they say as soon as they have the political will and the numbers to execute it. That could be a long time, but it might not be, either.

Also, to think that you can deflect the hatred towards some other subclass of Kulak is folly, because you’re next, even if that succeeds.

In the contemporary sense, just as historically, the way to avoid the de-Kulakization is to re-align yourself with the state and against the Kulaks. If you could credibly be mistaken for a Kulak, you instead loudly proclaim how much you hate Kulaks, and how willing you are to assist in their expropriation.

A defense can be mounted in a secure state, but it can’t be  mounted within a state that is entirely oriented against you. Finland withstood the Soviet invasion, but the states which were already in the Soviet orbit left the gates unlocked, and gladly accepted absorption. During the civil war in Spain, towns purged and counter-purged one another until the borders were clear — the secular Bolsheviks versus the Catholic Francoists.

Even then, people caught on the wrong side of the internal border were killed by their friends and neighbors, often with crude farm tools in barbaric rituals.

This even of course has occurred in recent times under American supervision — similar mass-killing of civilians is going on as I write this in Ukraine and New Russia. Ethnic cleansing famously occurred under hapless US supervision in Iraq, amassing an enormous body count. The American press is uniform in either glossing over these murders of civilians or in lauding them as necessary.

It is not so much of a jump to say that the same governing class that did not bat an eye in those wars would not bat an eye to do the same domestically, at least following a crisis of significant magnitude.

It’s not wise to trust in moderate political parties to brake the success of the neo-Jacobin left, because moderate parties are the first ones to go in crisis, under pressure from both sides.

Of course, none of this will make any sense if you are totally unfamiliar with the history of the left, especially in the 20th century. The rhetoric will seem benign because the symbols that they use for certain things are going to appear benign, rather than containing murderous intent. The normalcy that you have experienced for most of your life will be what you expect to experience for the foreseeable future, because you don’t have the records of others stored in your head, warning of such things.

In the same way, when people talk about ‘socialized medicine,’ you are going to have an entirely different emotional reaction to it if you know that Soviet doctors dumped dying patients out in front of hospitals to make their statistics look better than if you are wholly ignorant of that anecdote.

This is why it is often so difficult to make what should be an alarming historical parallel argument with regards to the bloody history of the left — contemporary people have been trained into fearing the ‘Brown scare,’ but not the far more dangerous ‘Red scare.’ They feel calm when they should feel alarm. They dismiss language that they should take seriously until precisely the moment before language commands action.

Obama Rewrites American History – Says Islam Woven Into America At Our Founding

IslamFounders

Obama lifts up Islam while providing aid and comfort to ISIS at his Summit on ‘Extremism’ last week, and rewrites history to state that Islam was woven into America at our Founding.

In order to fundamentally transform an entire country and society, one has to rewrite it’s history to reflect a false projection so that society will accept the imposition of alien values, culture and principles.  Since 2008, Obama has publicly engaged in this effort on every front imaginable.  He has continuously bashed America in front of the world while admonishing us here at home of sins that he insists we must pay a penalty for.  From economics to ideology to religious faith – Obama has told big lies, over and over while insinuating other big lies – to the point that he now thinks he can blatantly rewrite history to impose a false narrative for the express purpose of ‘fundamentally transforming the United States of America’.

Obama publicly stated ‘America is no longer a Christian nation” as a pretext to morally equivocate alien beliefs and ideologies and get them into public acceptance.

Now that he has achieved that equivocation in the minds of a bulk of the population with help from his Praetorian media and Marxist professors in academia,  Obama is now working to establish them as a foundation for the transformation he is imposing via dictatorial fiat. One way of doing that is to completely rewrite a nation’s history as to reflect a worldview totally alien to what it once was. Josef Stalin is an excellent textbook example of rewriting history to enable his iron fist of power to be established, and most genocidal maniacs of last century did similarly.

Obama follows that textbook example, and what better way to do so than to start at the beginning of our history and erase the entire context, principle and purpose of the nation?

So at the nefarious White House summit last week to absolve Islam and blame Christianity and Americans for ‘violent extremism’ in front of a host of invited Islamic leaders from around the world – Obama stated that not only were the terrorists of ISIS not Muslim, but that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of America since it’s founding”.

Historically – this is one of his biggest and potentially most damaging lies to foist upon the country.  Islam had absolutely no involvement or place in America’s early history – not the war of Independence, the thinking of the Founders or our establishing history.  The actual first involvement of Islam upon America was one foisted upon the young nation similar to what we see Islam doing today: waging jihad, conquering territory by the sword, taking slaves, demanding tribute and so forth.

However, history and facts do not matter to Obama and his ideologues – only their intent to fundamentally transform America matters.  Even so far as to give aid and comfort to ISIS and the Islamic Jihadists of the world by exclaiming at the close of their ‘summit’ that these Islamic terrorists “have legitimate grievances” and need us to provide better jobs and opportunities in order to get their demented warriors to choose flipping burgers instead of setting humans ablaze and cutting off heads.  Nevermind that ISIS is possibly the wealthiest terror organization on the planet and many of their Jihadists had jobs that they left in order to go wage war on infidels.  No, no no.  The narrative is that these Islamists have been impoverished by the policies of America and we Americans drive Muslims to wage jihad on us because we are Islamophobic – and if we dare call them terrorists, it only gives them legitimacy and causes them to hate us.  ISIS has seized upon that insanity coming from the Obama regime, and is now using Obama’s own words in their own propaganda against us in order to gain converts for their global caliphate cause.

Obama’s big lies keep getting bigger, following the Goebbel’s adage that if you tell the big lie often enough – it will become accepted as the truth.

The truth however is this: Obama commits treason with our avowed enemies who are waging war on us and state they intend to subjugate us to Islam – while also rewriting our history to create a fiction out of thin air that Islam was an integral part of our foundation as a country – and that Islam has contributed to our wealth and prosperity.

Obama has committed treason.  Understand it.  Say it.  For of all the enemies America has ever faced, HE – Obama, is perhaps it’s most insidious enemy of America and liberty to ever exist.

OBAMA: ISLAM ‘WOVEN INTO THE FABRIC OF OUR COUNTRY SINCE FOUNDING’

In his bloviating speech on Thursday at his summit on countering violent extremism, President Obama bent over backwards to make nice with Islam. Not only were terrorists not Muslim, President Obama stated, but Islam played a crucial role in America’s founding.

“Here in America,” Obama stated, “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”

Obama seems significantly more comfortable with this characterization of the historic role of Islam than he is with the non-fictional actual historic role of Christianity and Judaism in the American founding.

After all, this is the same man who stated in 2006, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

This is the same president who said in April 2009, “Although, as I mentioned, we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values. I think modern Turkey was founded with a similar set of principles.”

It is fair to say that modern Turkey was not founded upon the same principles as the United States. It is also fair to say that Islam has not been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding, at least not in any meaningful sense.

That does not mean that there were no Muslims in America at the founding — many African slaves were originally Muslim, and were forcibly converted from that faith. But to say that Islam as a religion has been “woven into the fabric of our country since our founding” is simply false. The first wave of Muslim immigrants to the United States did not begin until well after the Civil War. The first mosque in the United States was not built until 1915, by most reports.

Islam had zero impact on the founders or their philosophy – less than zero, given that the founders despised the religion, or what they knew of it. President Obama fictionalized this history at an Iftar dinner in 2012:

As I’ve noted before, Thomas Jefferson once held a sunset dinner here with an envoy from Tunisia — perhaps the first Iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago. And some of you, as you arrived tonight, may have seen our special display, courtesy of our friends at the Library of Congress — the Koran that belonged to Thomas Jefferson. And that’s a reminder, along with the generations of patriotic Muslims in America, that Islam — like so many faiths — is part of our national story.

Well, not so much. That magical “first Iftar” was a meeting between Sidi Solima Mellimelli, an emissary of the brutal Barbary pirates, and the president. Jefferson had over Mellimelli in an attempt to bribe him into submission after the USS Constitutioncaptured ships from the bey of Tunis. Mellimelli requested food, lodgings, and concubines.

Jefferson already knew of Islam, having been educated in 1786 after Barbary pirates attempted to blackmail America into monetary tribute. At that time, the Barbary emissary justified piracy with reference to the Koran, according to a report from Jefferson:

The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.

John Quincy Adams, writing of these negotiations, stated:

The precept of the Koran is perpetual war against all who deny that Mahomet is the prophet of God. The vanquished may purchase their lives, by the payment of tribute; the victorious may be appeased by a false and delusive promise of peace; and the faithful follower of the prophet may submit to the imperious necessities of defeat: but the command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective. The commands of the prophet may be performed alike, by fraud, or by force.

Quincy Adams would later lament, “Such is the spirit, which governs the hearts of men, to whom treachery and violence are taught as principles of religion.”

As Thomas S. Kidd writes, philosophers upon whom the founders relied had similarly negative views of Islam. Montesquieu wrote that the Turks were despotic. William Blackstone wrote that religion could be used for despotism, as shown by “terrible ravages committed by the Saracens in the east, to propagate the religion of Mahomet.” Thomas Paine wrote of Islam in Common Sense, but only as a reference point for despotic attempts to stifle liberty: he said that divine right of kings was a “superstitious tale, conveniently timed, Mahomet like, to cram hereditary right down the throats of the vulgar.”

The historical record demonstrates that Islam had virtually no role in the foundation of the early Republic outside of being used as a negative comparison point for freedom and self-government.

President Obama is obviously rewriting history. But since he’s busily rewriting the present, too, why should anyone be surprised?

 

 Obama’s Summit Helped Isis

By allowing ideology to trump good national security practice, the administration’s recent summit on “Violent Extremism” has empowered America’s enemies.

Friday saw the close of the of the three-day international summit on violent extremism hosted by the White House.

Coming as it did just a just after the release of ISIS/Islamic State videos on the immolation of Lt Kassasbeh, the Jordanian Royal Air Force pilot, and the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Christians, and the reported death of another US hostage, the timing allowed it potentially to be a perfect platform for a muscular response to the barbarity of the Islamic State, for the announcement of actions akin to the attacks against ISIS launched by King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Sisi of Egypt.

Instead, the President spoke of the real grievances the Muslim world has had with the West, the danger of Islamophobia in the U.S., and the need for more community outreach. As the same time, Marie Harf of the State Department gave an interview in which she presented “more jobs” as the answer to the rise of global jihadist movements, and Eric Holder attackedFOX News for its obsession with discussing “radical Islam” and “Islamic extremism.” All this just after the President used the National Prayer Breakfast to compare ISIS atrocities today with Christians using violence in the name of Jesus centuries in the past. How these statements were meant to weaken our enemies is not clear.

That enemy, whether it is was Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, ISIS in Iraq, or the Tsarnaev brothers who bombed the Boston marathon, has a narrative, a story they tell to recruit new terrorists and justify the mass murders they commit daily.

That story is not one of America failing to provide jobs for the world’s needy, or the lack of community outreach in America. It is a story of Islam under attack by the West, a perpetual Holy War against the infidel until the House of Islam – Dar al Islaam – covers the world and all live under sharia in a new Caliphate.

When the Commander-in-Chief speaks of our crusades, he reinforces the message of the people who beheaded those 21 Christians. And ironically, when Marie Harf says all America has to do is solve the world’s problems, she too helps our enemies, unwittingly portraying America as an imperial nation that must become involved in everyone’s business and shape their futures whether or not we have been asked to do so or not.

Ignorance is a very dangerous thing. The mere fact that no one in a position of power in our government understands that the Islamic State beheaded the 21 Christians because they were infidels but immolated Lt Kassasbeh because he was an apostate, demonstrates just how little we know the enemy in this the 14th year of the war against the Global Jihadi Movement. Those two different horrific acts were religiously and theologically determined.

Faith matters to our foes. They have read the Koran. For them, Chapter 9 Verse 5, which reads:

And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the unbelievers wherever you find them, capture them and besiege them and lie in wait for them with every stratagem of war.

is not a remnant of a 7th century story but the eternal word of Allah.

The Attorney General said this week: “The terminology, it seems to me, has little to no impact on what ultimately we have to do.” Would he say the same of a doctor diagnosing him in hospital? If words have meaning, then what we call something matters. Cancer is not that same as the flu.

America and her allies are in a war with people who do what they do to please their God and obtain salvation by serving him as warriors. Washington summits and more community outreach will not stop the next attack against the Homeland. And quoting the Crusades to prove how relative all things really are will only embolden new recruits to rally under the flag of Jihad.

White House Summit on Violent Extremism Opens With Muslim Prayer – No Other Faiths Represented

A Muslim prayer was recited at the start of the second day of the White House summit on “Countering Violent Extremism,” but no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press.

Imam Sheikh Sa’ad Musse Roble, president of the World Peace Organization in Minneapolis, Minn., recited a “verse from the Quran” following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress.

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’).”

Decline And Fall: Twilight In America

Decline-and-fall

The historical similarities of Rome’s Decline and Fall with current America are astounding.  You are witness to a collapse of an entire society into ruin.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

So we are repeating the fall of Rome, Greece, Pre-Revolutionary France while giving rise to Mussolini’s Italy, Stalin’s Soviet and Hitler’s Reich, all rolled together into one massive beast.

The following essay by Dr. Clyde Wilson who notes the historical parallels we are living at an exponential level, is truly sobering given the implications.

tatteredglory

Decline and Fall

Clyde Wilson

I am very far from original in noticing similarities in the histories of Rome and America—republics that became empires.  The decline and fall of the former has often been thought to foretell the fate of the latter.  A Frenchman some years ago wrote a fairly convincing book called The Coming Caesars.  Such analogies are interesting and suggestive but should not be put forward too dogmatically.  History does repeat itself because human nature remains the same and because civilized people build institutions that then perpetuate themselves for their own sake rather than for the purpose for which they were established.  Power-seeking, luxury, debauchery, irresponsibility, and sloth are ever present and are held in check only for brief and extraordinary periods by Christianity or patriotism.  Still, the recurrences of past patterns are never exactly the same.  The more intimately one knows a past time, the more cautious one becomes in sweeping generalizations.  All large events, like the fall of Rome or the American war of 1861-65, have multiple “causes”—some deep, and some circumstantial.  Indeed, sweeping generalizations about history by people who don’t know what they are talking about are a major blight on American discourse.

The decline and fall of Rome has been blamed on enervating luxury, moral debauchery, imperial overreach, dilution of the founding stock, multiculturalism, bad economic policy, replacement of citizen soldiers by foreign mercenaries, lead poisoning, and, if you believe Gibbon, Christianity.  Such weaknesses left the empire prey to our “barbaric” ancestors.  Dr. Thomas Fleming is my infallible authority on all things classical, and I defer to and welcome his correction.  But as I read it, one of the observable phenomena in the decline of Rome is that republican institutions were maintained in name when they had been entirely transformed in substance.  The senate continued long after it had lost all power.  It no longer represented the interests of a real society but, like the American Congress today, was an appendage of the emperor.  The fiction was maintained that the emperor was only the first among equals.  And yet, like the American president, he was ranked by many among the gods.

Doesn’t that describe the state that the American government has reached today?  The U.S. Constitution continues to receive lip service, when it has all but ceased to exist.  The Framers and ratifiers of the Constitution would not recognize today’s federal government as having any relation to the instrument they created.  All three branches of the federal government have committed violations of fundamental law that are as bad as Julius Caesar’s crossing of the Rubicon.  Obama and his predecessor have ruled essentially as elected emperors who may do anything without any effective opposition.  The Congress has become a rubber stamp of the executive, and the Supreme Court the maker of far-reaching laws.

All that remains is for the emperor to rule for life.  Third World dictators do so, and the widespread adulation of Obama definitely has aspects of Third World leader-worship.  Why can’t Obama be elected again and again?  All it would take is for the Supreme Court to suspend or overrule the constitutional amendment limiting presidents to two terms.  Such a ruling would be no more extreme in reasoning and usurpation than many rulings already made and enforced.  A large majority of Congress would fall down and worship rather than put up an opposition that might make them unpopular or threaten their power and perks.

America today bears many of the characteristics that have been checked off as causes of the decline and fall of Rome.  Bread and circuses (multiple forms of welfare, television, sports), imperial overreach, replacement of the founding population with foreigners, concentration of wealth into fewer and fewer hands.  Surely, one of the observable clues to Roman decline was the proletarianization of the population.  Indeed, the term prole originates with Rome as a description of the propertyless.  The sturdy yeoman class—attached to land and hearth, household gods, and republican virtue—departed or disappeared into the impoverished, multicultural, and dependent urban mob or imperial wars.  At the same time the wealthy and well placed became ever more wealthy and more lacking in civic character.  You can certainly see here analog to present American reality.  The proletarianization of the upper-middle, middle, and working classes is the most important major trend of our time.  For the first time in American history the promise of the “land of opportunity” has become a bad joke.

One thing about this has puzzled and troubled me.  How could the traditionally wealthy and powerful ruling class of Rome so readily exploit and discard the general mass of their fellow citizens, not in the least regretting their disappearance or understanding the social costs?  Wouldn’t the wealthy and powerful naturally have some fellow feeling, some allegiance to their countrymen of the middle classes with whom they long shared a civic, religious, and military tradition?

I was, as usual, too idealistic and too attached to a dead tradition of a responsible Southern aristocracy of Washington, Jefferson, and Lee.  Observing America today has cured me of such foolishness.  I understand how it happened because I see it happening now.  Our wealthy and powerful class is no less ruthless, selfish, and shortsighted than the Roman.  Wealth is becoming more and more concentrated into fewer hands, and the wealthy are becoming ever less responsible and patriotic and attached to their fellow citizens.  This is decline and fall without a doubt, and nobody even notices or gives a damn.

Please take note, Mr. Lincoln.  Government of the people, by the people, and for the people is indeed perishing from the earth.

It Is Our Right – It Is Our Duty – To Throw Off This Government That Is Reducing Us Under Absolute Despotism

ResistOdds

What will it take to wake Americans up from the tyranny being done to them?

The Obama regime and the Democrat/Republican Oligarchy is waging war on Americans.  The Obama regime is enabling Jihadists worldwide to establish a Caliphate while reducing our military to parading homosexual rights.  He has handed over Egypt, Libya and Iraq over to a Jihadist group more horrifying than Bin Laden’s Al Qaeda and seeks to do the same to Syria while appeasing the Mullah’s in Iran.

At the same time Obama has opened up our Southern borders wide and is trucking, bussing and even FLYING in hundreds of thousands of poor, illiterate South Americans in an unprecedented invasion to force the issue of “Immigration reform”(read AMNESTY).  Our Border Patrol ordered to stand down and watch helpless as Obama facilitates this invasion while changing diapers and playing taxi drivers to refugee camps.   Meanwhile our local police departments have been militarized against us, and we are being told that our rights must submit to NEW RIGHTS that the “progressive” (Marxist) is dreaming up for themselves and their goose-stepping followers.  Elections are being corrupted and stolen by oligarchs, Obama rules as a dictator and punishes industry, business and individuals he targets by using the IRS, the EPA  the whole of the federal beast and his InJustice Department.

At some point – we must resist by every and all means possible if you wish to hold onto some shred of liberty.  Tyrants always follow a similar pattern of imposing despotism, and it is ALWAYS when a people defy the rulers, refuse to comply and RESIST that the real hard face of the tyrant is revealed – and they begin to exterminate all those they have decreed to be their enemies.

But will it unite a people in opposition, or force them to comply for the promise of relief and bread?

How long will we willingly put up with this crap from the federal beast that is evincing a plan to reduce us under absolute despotism?

Because we have every right under Heaven and a solemn duty to throw off such government.

1775       From Ken Cuccinelli:

As we celebrate the birthday of our exceptional nation, I wanted to look back just one more year than Americans usually do today – back to 1775.

Of course, the Revolutionary War began in 1775, not 1776. Before we were ready to take the historic and dramatic step of birthing our own new nation in liberty, there were long and often painful attempts to accommodate the relationship between American colonists and the British Parliament and King.

Interestingly, one of the evolutions that happened during that year is that many Americans who started 1775 thinking of themselves as “British” did not finish the year that way. I hear from many Republicans who are having similar feelings this year. One year is a short time for such a change, and it was almost entirely driven by the British themselves. As much as some colonists, especially in Virginia, Massachusetts, South Carolina and Connecticut, were advancing toward independence in 1775, most colonists were not there when the year began.

What are some of the things the British did in 1775 to drive their subjects to rebel, you ask? There were many, and you may notice how history tends to repeat itself…

First, as the possibility of armed conflict increased from 1774 into 1775, the four leading states started removing stocks of gunpowder out of reach of Royal Governors, and they commissioned buyers around the world to buy more gunpowder and weapons for their colonial militias. Needless to say, the colonial bodies undertaking these steps weren’t approved or allowed by the Crown, nonetheless, they pressed on – at great personal risk.

The British did all they could, especially the Royal Navy, to interdict these shipments.

So, my fellow 2nd Amendment supporters will not fail to notice that one of the first “battles” of the American Revolution was for the citizenry to arm itself adequately to protect its own rights against the government itself. It is also no surprise that the first true battle of the Revolutionary War was sparked by a British effort to seize gunpowder stored at Concord, Massachusetts. On their way to Concord, the shot heard round the world was fired at Lexington, Massachusetts and the shooting war was on.

Second, it is very important to note that even after the battles at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, many colonists, especially in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland – the so-called “middle colonies” were not enthusiastic to press the colonial case so aggressively. They generally preferred continuing to try to talk through colonial difficulties with the Crown and Parliament, without any pushing, threatening and certainly not attacking the British.

But the British Navy began what may literally be called the naval version of ‘scorched earth’ tactics in 1775. They started threatening, attacking and burning colonial seaside towns! Can you imagine? Their notion seems to have been to bully the colonists back into line.

The Royal Navy threatened Weymouth, Marblehead and Gloucester in Massachusetts. But the first town burned was Charlestown, Massachusetts. The Royal Navy fired red-hot cannonballs to start the fire, and later that day landed nearby to begin the fight we now know as Bunker Hill.

Next door in Rhode Island, Royal Navy Captain James Wallace had been threatening Newport for months. He threatened to burn or fire on their town if they didn’t provide supplies, or if they interfered with his men, or if they allowed Patriot troops into town, and on and on.

At that time, about half of Rhode Island’s population lived on the coast or islands along the coast, so they were very vulnerable to Wallace’s threats. Then he began cannonading Newport in the summer of 1775 and regularly thereafter. By the turn of the year, three quarters of the previous inhabitants had been driven from their homes.

Wallace’s flotilla bombarded Connecticut towns too, and stole their hay and livestock.

It should be no surprise that during the summer of 1775, both colonies were among the first to call for a colonial navy, and in fact, began fitting out their own navies!

The 64-gun line-of-battle ship Asia fired a full broad side into lower Manhattan near Wall Street! This led – as intended – to great fear among those in New York City, and within weeks, many began to leave rather than live under the threat of the Asia’s guns. By the end of the year, about half of the residents had left the city.

You can picture in your mind the trail of carts and wagons and families as refugees. Such treatment, or even just seeing the sad plight of fellow colonists, would have affected people strongly.

Rough tactics engender depression and sadness, but also resistance!

In Virginia, British Captain Montagu threatened to burn York – soon to become known as Yorktown. And the Royal Governor himself – Lord Dunmore – threatened to burn Williamsburg! Hampton Roads was fired upon and so was Jamestown – the original English foothold in America.

There was a small naval battle in Charleston Harbor, in South Carolina, in November of 1775, as patriots there tried to sink ships in the channel to protect their town from the kinds of bombardments and burnings that were taking place in New England.

Starting in October, the British issued orders to their Navy Captains to go to specific towns, e.g., Gloucester, Massachusetts to “burn, destroy and lay waste the said Town together with all Vessells and Craft in the Harbour.” They also began systematic bombardments of seacoast towns.

The most infamous town burning of them all was of Falmouth, Massachusetts in October of 1775. It was done as revenge for Falmouth’s resistance to the Royal Navy in May of 1775. After some threatening back-and-forth with the local leaders, the British Navy spent an entire day bombarding the town, and then went ashore to burn it. 130 homes were burned, along with the new courthouse, the fire station and the public library. It was an instant flashpoint across the colonies.

Then, near and dear to my heart, on New Year’s Day of 1776, Norfolk, Virginia was bombarded and burned. Ironically, it was a center of Tory sentiment.

Of course, such tactics drove undecideds to the Patriot cause and embarrassed (some) Tories. Other Tories thought even stronger measures were in order. You can imagine the Patriot response to such Tory neighbors!

The third tactic used by the British that so pushed colonists toward the independence that we celebrate today was the hiring of Hessian troops to suppress the colonists. This was seen as unleashing demons of war. The Hessians were known to take some of their pay in plunder, and it was a sign to the colonists that the British intended to treat them as “savages” and not “brothers.”

1775 was a lonely year to be a Patriot in many parts of America.

Why did they suffer such depredations and keep going? In their minds it came down to one word: Liberty.

They believed in their cause and they were willing to sacrifice everything to obtain liberty in America. At that time they didn’t know whether it would be by protecting their rights as Englishmen, or striking out alone as Americans – with the prospect of having to overcome the greatest military power in the world at that time – an imposing thought!

There is much to celebrate as we think back to 1776. The Founders of this nation were bold visionaries who stepped out on a path that had never been tried before in the history of the world. They lit a lamp for the world, and they knew the risks and confronted them boldly, closing the Declaration by saying:“with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

America isn’t a place, and Americans aren’t a tribe, we are a people brought together by our mutual commitment to shared principles. Such a basis for a nation was utterly unique in the history of the world in 1776, and it is a special gift to which each of us are heirs.

We are truly blessed to be Americans.
