Curious Timing Of Mitt Romney’s Bash Of Trump

RomneyLoser

Mitt Romney’s hate fest this morning bashing Trump got me thinking about why the GOP leadership asked him to do so very publicly.

It’s sickening and hilarious watching the absolute desperation that the leadership of the Republican Party is exhibiting this primary season.  The two top candidates running on their ticket are both “outsiders” and not under the direct control of the corrupt apparatus running the velvet coup in D.C.

While the leadership of the GOP has steadfastly REFUSED to attack Obama, his lawless and unconstitutional actions, the Democrats or their agenda – it’s been an amazing thing to watch all their efforts and rage being brought to bear upon fellow Republicans Trump and Cruz who are not on their leash that threaten their Fascist gravy train.

You certainly did not hear THIS kind of vitriol being leveled against Hillary over her e-mails, or Obama over the IRS scandal did you?

ALSO – ROMNEY NEVER –  EVER – TALKED ABOUT OBAMA OR ANY DEMOCRAT THE WAY HE BASHED TRUMP TODAY.  NEVER.  Not in 2012, and not since his failed run.

It’s become very clear to us ‘little people’ in flyover country that the Uniparty Establishment  despises us and that the GOP leadership looks at us plebes merely as tampons to use and discard once we get them into office.  That we will no longer bow down and take it up main street has earned us their hatred and contempt.

So the Oligarchy has decided to play hard ball with us “children throwing a temper tantrum”.

Which leads me to my question:  why foist the liberal establishment LOSER of the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney into holding a PRESS CONFERENCE to bash Trump after he received Trump’s endorsement 4 years ago?

Does the Establishment really think having the poster-boy of the feckless GOP Ruling Class Leadership give Trump and all his millions of supporters the middle finger going to sway any of them over to supporting Rubio or Kasich?

NO.  They are setting the stage, greasing the skids for what they plan to do should Trump or Cruz “win” the nomination.  

Romney’s bash of Trump this morning is intended to do only one thing: place in the minds of the public, the EXCUSE the Ruling Class will use to either foist their own candidate upon the party at a contested GOP convention (which is why Rubio and Kasich are not going to get out of this race), or why they will throw their support behind Hillary Clinton.

It’s as simple as that.

As my readers know, I have my major issues with Trump – moreso the mentality of the people who see him or any politician as a political savior.

But what is become clear to me is that the Oligarchy in DC is telling us that we the little people will not be allowed to have OUR CHOICE for the White House in power.  They instead will force their candidate upon the people by any means they can conjure.

They are going to TELL US whom they will give us as a weak candidate to lose to Hillary so that the crowning of the next Marxist Dear Leader creates the illusion that our election system has any legitimacy.

And their corrupt Fascist gravy train and growth into a hard tyranny will continue unabated.

It’s 2008 All Over Again

GameThrones2016

The insane messianic zealotry that made Obama a king for the Left has transposed itself to Donald Trump by a people who will eventually embrace a bloodbath

 

This year’s election circus has proven to me beyond any shadow of doubt that freedom and the Constitution are as good as dead in this country.

This nation is hopelessly divided between more than half a population that want a Marxist dictatorship and the rest who now want a populist king that they loft all their hopes for change upon.

Details of plans beyond words?  Forget it. You will be told that a good negotiator does not reveal his hand and operates in secret until a deal is made. Ask for specifics, be told amidst angry vitriol that you are traitor who will be killed when the time comes for payback.

Separation of powers? Screw it. We want a king who will impose reparations or build walls by the power of his charisma and give us free shite while punishing anyone who dares oppose them.

Such a people and such a country are not capable of maintaining liberty in any capacity beyond a strong leader they think will do their bidding to impart revenge on the half of the population they hate.

I am clearly beginning to understand that a majority of the American people want a dictatorship or a monarchy, not a Representative Republic that we already lost in a velvet coup 8 years ago.  They want a king so long as he is THEIR KING.

Sadly, as history teaches, such a people shall have it.

Make no mistake – I have no intention of supporting any of the GOP Establishment’s picks for ruler.  They hate Trump and Cruz with a vehemence and they want a crony who will keep their fascist gravy train running without interruption.  I fully expect them to find a way to throw support to Hillary if shenanigans at the GOP Convention does not seat their puppet for them.

I’m more concerned about the national mentality of a people who see Trump as a political savior and their crowbar for revenge. Obama already set that precedent and it seems to me that Trumpians are eager to pick that up and continue running with it.

I want no part of that – but I will continue to give warning about what The Almighty will give them all over to,notably all of their appetites, and they shall be consumed by it.

Angelo Codevilla who is an amazing intellect and analyst has shared his perspective on this circus passing itself off as an election cycle.  This is the man who coined the title that I use often to describe the Establishment in DC as the “Ruling Class”.  He perfectly illustrated the mindset that exists in DC versus the rest of us in ‘flyover country’ – or as he coined us “the Country Class”.   Codevilla has noticed the same exact thing that I have in terms of warning about what will come from a desperate people who loft all their desires upon a man running for the highest office in the land.  Like me, he sees what is going on as simply 2008 all over again.

Before you have a knee-jerk rejection of the title Codevilla used, you should carefully consider the warnings he gives about where this former Constitutional Republic currently sits in terms of reality, and what a zealous mob seeking retribution will cost what is left of our liberties.

Donald Trump Is The Next Barack Obama

The difference between Donald Trump and Barack Obama amounts only to whatever difference may exist between each emperor’s set of cronies.

The Obama years have brought America to the brink of transformation from constitutional republic into an empire ruled by secret deals promulgated by edicts. Civics classes used to teach: “Congress makes the laws, the president carries them out, judges decide controversies, and we citizens may be penalized only by a jury of our peers.”

 

Nobody believes that anymore, because no part of it has been true for a long time. Barack Obama stopped pretending that it is. During the twentieth century’s second half, both parties and all branches of government made a mockery of the Constitution of 1789. Today’s effective constitution is: “The president can do whatever he wants so long as one-third of the Senate will sustain his vetoes and prevent his conviction upon impeachment.”

Obama has been our first emperor. A Donald Trump presidency, far from reversing the ruling class’s unaccountable hold over American life, would seal it. Because Trump would act as our second emperor, he would render well-nigh impossible our return to republicanism.

 

Donald Trump Is Everything that Has Ruined Us

Today, nearly all the rules under which we live are made, executed, and adjudicated by agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and countless boards and commissions. Congress no longer passes real laws. Instead, it passes broad grants of authority, the substance of the president’s bureaucracy decides in cooperation with interest groups.

 

Trump’s career and fortune have been as beneficiary in the process by which government grants privileges to some and inflicts burdens on others.

Nancy Pelosi’s remark that we would know Obamacare’s contents only after it passed was true, and applicable to nearly all modern legislation. The courts allow this, pretending that bureaucrats sitting with their chosen friends merely fill in details. Some details! Americans have learned that, as they say in DC, if you are not sitting at one of these tables of power, “you’re on the menu.”

 

Trump’s claim to be an enemy of rule-by-inside-deal is counterintuitive. His career and fortune have been as participant and beneficiary in the process by which government grants privileges to some and inflicts burdens on others. Crony capitalism is the air he breathes, the only sea in which he swims, his second nature. His recipe for “fixing” America, he tells us, is to appoint “the best people”—he names some of his fellow crony capitalists—to exercise even more unaccountable power and to do so with “unbelievable speed.” He assures us that, this time, it will be to “make America great again.” Peanuts’ Lucy might reply: “This time, for sure!”

 

Deal-Making Expands Government

In recent years, Obama and the Democratic Party (with the Republican leadership’s constant collusion) have prevented Congress from voting to appropriate funds for individual programs and agencies. They have lumped all government functions into “continuing resolutions” or “omnibus bills.” This has moved the government’s decision-making into back rooms, shielding elected officials from popular scrutiny, relieving them of the responsibility for supporting or opposing what the government does. This has enabled Obama to make whatever deals have pleased him and his Republican cronies.

 

This has moved the government’s decision-making into back rooms, relieving elected officials of responsibility.

Trump touts his own capacity to make good deals. But good for whom? And who is to say what is good? Who or what causes would benefit from continuing government by secret deals? Who or what would lose? Trump’s stated objective is to wield whatever power might be necessary to accomplish whatever objectives upon which he—in consultation with whomever—might choose from time to time. But the difference between Trump and Obama amounts only to whatever difference may exist between each emperor’s set of cronies.

 

By contrast, the U.S. Constitution of 1789, as explained by James Madison, envisages a continuous mutual effort at persuasion among the American people’s many parts, to “refine and enlarge the public views” and to result in ”decisions based on the “cool and deliberate sense of the community.” For two centuries, the government’s main decisions have happened through open congressional proceedings and recorded votes. That’s the republic we used to have.

 

Rule By Will, Not Law

Like Obama, Trump is not about persuading anybody. Both are about firing up their supporters to impose their will on their opponents while insulting them. Throughout history, this style of politics has been the indispensable ingredient for wrecking republics, the “final cause” that transforms free citizens into the subjects of emperors.

 

Both are about firing up their supporters to impose their will on their opponents while insulting them.

This style of politics has grown, along with a ruling class that rejects the notion that no person may rule another without that person’s consent. As I have shown at length elsewhere, America is now ruled by a uniformly educated class of persons that occupies the commanding heights of bureaucracy, of the judiciary, education, the media, and of large corporations, and that wields political power through the Democratic Party. Its control of access to prestige, power, privilege, and wealth exerts a gravitational pull that has made the Republican Party’s elites into its satellites.

This class’s fatal feature is its belief that ordinary Americans are a lesser intellectual and social breed. Its increasing self-absorption, its growing contempt for whoever won’t bow to it, its dependence for votes on sectors of society whose grievances it stokes, have led it to break the most basic rule of republican life: deeming its opposition illegitimate. The ruling class insists on driving down the throats of its opponents the agendas of each its constituencies and on injuring persons who stand in the way. This has spawned a Newtonian reaction, a hunger, among what may be called the “country class” for returning the favor with interest.

 

The Cycle of Revenge Rarely Slows

Ordinary Americans have endured being insulted by the ruling class’s favorite epitaphs—racist, sexist, etc., and, above all, stupid; they have had careers and reputations compromised by speaking the wrong word in front of the wrong person; endured dictates from the highest courts in the land that no means yes (King), that public means private (Kelo), that everyone is entitled to make up one’s meaning of life (Casey), but that whoever thinks marriage is exclusively between men and women is a bigot (Obergefell).

Trying to stop the cycle of political payback with another round of it, while not utterly impossible, is well-nigh beyond human capacity.

No wonder, then, that millions of Americans lose respect for a ruling class that disrespects them, that they identify with whomever promises some kind of turnabout against that class, and that they care less and less for the integrity of institutions that fail to protect them.

 

Trump’s voters expect precisely such turnabout. Within good measure, not only would this right any number of wrongs and restore some balance in our public life, it is also indispensable for impressing upon the ruling class and its constituents that they too have a stake in observing the limits and niceties that are explicit and implicit in our Constitution.

 

But not only do opposing sets of wrongs not make anything right. As I have argued (Sophocles did it a lot better), trying to stop the cycle of political payback with another round of it, while not utterly impossible, is well-nigh beyond human capacity.

Neither Obama nor Trump seem to know or care that cycles of reciprocal resentment, of insults and injuries paid back with ever more interest and ever less concern for consequences, are the natural fuel of revolutions—easy to start and soon impossible to stop. America’s founders, steeped in history as few of our contemporaries are, were acutely aware of how easily factional enmities deliver free peoples into the hands of emperors. America is already advanced in this vicious cycle. The only possible chance of returning it to republicanism lies in not taking the next turn, and in not following one imperial ruler with another.

When Government Begins Crushing Dissent

PoliceStateGenocide

A vital history lesson to remember as the Federal Beast in Washington begins to round up political dissenters whom they deem terrorists.

Apologies to Niemoller, but I think it appropriate

First they came for Christian and Conservative 501C3 Applicants.

But I did not speak up because I was not applying for tax exempt status from the IRS

Then they came for business owners that refused to acquiesce and endorse the homosexual agenda

But I did not speak up because I don’t own a business and we shouldn’t judge behavior.

Then they came for those who spoke out against Muslims and Islam.

But I did not speak up because I did not want to be labeled an Islamophobe.

Then they came for those who protested government confiscation of private property

But I did not speak up because I rent and those were just right-wing nut jobs.

By the time they came for me, everyone that was left, applauded or pretended not to notice.

Please read the following essay that contains a lesson of history and how a tyrannical government crushed dissent, and spread a climate of fear to subjugate their people to absolute despotism.  Take note that when a government institutes a climate of fear, neighbors turn on neighbors and families betray one another in the vain hopes they will be left alone or receive lenient treatment.

Recall Jesus warned of this very thing:

“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another”. – Matthew 24:9-10

Recognize these same things are being employed against those our government has deemed political enemies, to the applause of a majority of those who call themselves Americans.

A Warning To The Feds On Incremental Prosecutions Of The Liberty Movement

At the very onset of what would become the Soviet Empire, Vladimir Lenin decreed the creation of a national internal army called the “Cheka.” The Cheka were handed very broad police powers and tasked with the disruption and elimination of any form of dissent within the communist system. Lenin launched what would later be known as the “Red Terror”, in which nearly every Russian population center had an established Cheka office of operations using surveillance, infiltration, nighttime raids, imprisonment, torture and execution to silence opposition to the authority of the state.

Some of these people were active rebels, some were outspoken political opponents and journalists, others were merely average citizens wrongly accused by neighbors or personal enemies. The Cheka created a society of fear and suspicion in which no one could be trusted and little criticism was spoken above a whisper anywhere, even in one’s own home.

It is important to note, however, that the dominance of the Cheka was established incrementally, not all at once.

Agents of the state began their “cleansing” of the Russian population by targeting specific groups at opportune times and worked their way through the citizenry at an exponential pace. The most intelligent, effective and dangerous activists and rebels were slated for destruction first, as they represented a kind of leadership mechanism by which the rest of the population might be mobilized or inspired. More innocuous organizations (like Christian churches and rural farmers) were persecuted as background noise while the political mop-up was underway.

Through this incrementalism, the communists were able to intern or eradicate vast numbers of potential opponents without the rest of Russians raising objections. The general populace was simply thankful that the eye of the Cheka had not been turned upon them, and as long as it was some other group of people unrelated to their daily life that disappeared in the night, they would keep their heads down and their mouths shut.

I would point out that the communists were very careful and deliberate in ensuring that the actions of the internal police were made valid through law and rationalized as a part of “class struggle.” Such laws were left so open to interpretation that literally any evil committed could later be vindicated. Man-made law is often a more powerful weapon than any gun, tank, plane or missile, because it triggers apathy within the masses. For some strange reason, when corrupt governments legalize their criminality through legislation or executive decree, the citizenry suddenly treats that criminality as legitimate and excusable.

Incremental prosecution and oppression is effective when the establishment wishes to avoid outright confrontation with a population. Attempt to snatch up a million people at one time, and you will have an immediate rebellion on your hands. Snatch up a million people one man at a time, or small groups at a time, and people do not know what to think or how to respond. They determine to hope that the authorities never get to them, that it will stop after a few initial arrests, or they hope that if they censor themselves completely, they will never be noticed.

In fact, corrupt governments issue warrants of arrest for a handful of dissenters and initiate imprisonment in a very public manner in the beginning with the express purpose of making examples and inspiring self censorship in the masses so that the authorities do not have to expend large amounts of resources to fight a more complex rebellion.

I bring up the historic example of the Cheka and incrementalism because a trend is brewing within our current establishment by which I believe a similar (if not more sterilized) brand of oppressive action is being planned against the liberty movement.

After the debacle in Burns, Oregon during the refuge standoff, federal officials immediately began a subtle campaign in the media promoting internal police powers that when examined in an honest light, are truly anti-liberty.

It remains my personal position according to the evidence I have seen that the refuge standoff was likely influenced by at least one if not more federal provocateurs and that Ammon Bundy was “encouraged” in his choice of actions and location by this person or persons. The goal? I can only guess that the intent was to trap the liberty movement in a Catch-22 scenario; either we join the poorly planned and executed standoff on some of the worst defensive ground possible and risk everything on one centralized event, or, we refuse to participate in the strategy and watch helplessly as a group of people, many with good intentions but little tactical sense or training, are arrested or killed. Either we gamble everything on the worst possible terms, or, we avoid the gamble and watch as the entire movement is made to look weak or incompetent by association with a few.

The majority of the movement chose the latter action, rightly I feel. Burns was no Bundy Ranch — everything about it felt rigged. And though there were many angry anonymous voices calling us “sunshine patriots” and “keyboard warriors” because we would not participate, apparently none of those loud mouths ever showed up in Burns either, so I am assuming they finally saw the wisdom in our decision.

It would seem as though the feds did not get exactly what they wanted out of the refuge standoff, but they have decided to squeeze as much advantage out of the event as possible.

Cliven Bundy was arrested after arriving by plane in Portland, Oregon, not on any charges relating to the refuge and his son Ammon, but on charges stemming from the Bundy Ranch standoff of 2014.

These charges include a strange and very broad legal measure relating to “interference with the duties of federal officials.” This in particular should be disconcerting to all of us, for “interference” could be any number of activities.

Any duties of federal officials that are not moral or constitutional should be interfered with in a tactically intelligent manner whenever possible. Such charges are a deliberate anathema to civil disobedience designed to counter immoral actions by government authorities. For any opposition could be deemed “interference” given a twisting of precedence, and thus treated as illegal.

In my recent article “Liberty Activists And ISIS Will Soon Be Treated As Identical Threats,” I examined statements made by the Justice Department’s chief of national security, John Carlin, in an article published by Reuters. Carlin and the Justice Department have made it clear that they intend to apply rules of prosecution used for foreign terrorist organizations to “domestic extremists.” The Oregon standoff was specifically mentioned as an example of such extremism.

Carlin claimed that domestic extremists represent a “clear and present danger,” alluding to the “Clear And Present Danger Doctrine” allowing the government in “times of national crisis” to prosecute almost any citizen giving “material support” to enemies of the state. “Material support” in the past has even included verbal opposition to government policies. Meaning, Carlin is testing the waters of material support laws and such tests may target liberty movement speakers and journalists along with anyone involved in physical opposition. As with the Cheka, no one is really safe.

These charges are also being brought in a retroactive manner, long after the supposed crimes have been committed as we have seen with Cliven Bundy. Meaning, the feds plan to retain warrants and prolong charges, only arresting people later when they think they can get away with it. This is where the incrementalism comes in…

Rumors of further indictments have surfaced possibly including dozens of people involved in the Bundy Ranch standoff. And because of the nature of the incremental game the government is playing, verification is difficult until the arrests are activated.

It has come to my attention from personal sources that there may be a lot of truth to the rumors of pending or retroactive indictments, and that the FBI in particular may be biding its time and waiting to bring charges when particular people are at their most vulnerable and when the movement is less likely to react. These sources have indicated that the federal government is seeking to work around the public relations problems of standoff scenarios like Ruby Ridge, Waco, and Bundy Ranch. The feds may claim that they have “seen the light” in terms of avoiding outright mass murder, but I believe they have just found a better way to sneak past public opinion.

If they can manipulate the liberty movement into participation in poorly planned standoffs like Burns, Oregon, they will. Such standoffs are doomed from their inception and can even be controlled from within by agents provocateur. They are not a real threat.

If a standoff occurs organically, as it did at Bundy Ranch in Nevada, and public support is on the side of the liberty movement, then the establishment will simply back off and pluck activists from their homes or at the airport months later.

It is incumbent upon me to offer a warning to federal agencies in the event that incremental prosecution of liberty activists is truly a strategy they are planning to carry out: It is the general consensus of many in the liberty movement that ANY further arrests predicated on activism at Bundy Ranch or similar opposition events in the past to Bureau Of Land Management abuses of power will result in further and expanded engagements by activists. That is to say, such arrests and indictments will not be allowed to continue.

This is not a threat, this is fair warning to government agencies that they are walking a razor’s edge. Incremental prosecutions and dismantling of the liberty movement will not be tolerated; they represent a non-negotiable line in the sand. The feds may or may not care what the consequences will be for crossing this line. They may even think they want such consequences. Regardless, consequences there will be.

While the refuge occupiers essentially handed their heads to the feds on a platter, and the movement was not able to salvage the situation in any viable manner, this does not mean that liberty activists will not take measures during future events depending on the circumstances. Federal agencies may be quick to forget the massive response at Bundy Ranch. This is a mistake. They should probably expect a similar response, if not a more aggressive one, if further arrests are undertaken.

With the ethereal nature of criminal charges like “material support” or “interference with federal officials,” due process becomes a bit of joke. You see, federal agents and agencies, you have to take into account the reality that the liberty movement is well aware of the government push to remove due process altogether. With the AUMF and the NDAA, among other executive actions, we realize that the friendly mask of due process is worn by government today, but not necessarily tomorrow.

If the movement gives ground and does nothing while dozens or more are retroactively imprisoned one case at a time for opposing federal abuse, then how long will it be before the rest of us are imprisoned on even broader charges? How long before the mask comes off and the rendition and indefinite detention provisions of the AUMF and the NDAA come into play? Do you really expect the movement to put faith in due process given the circumstances? Of course you do not.

I would venture to guess that the feds think that any opposition that does arise during the execution of warrants against liberty activists will be “easily managed.” This would be a mistake.

We have seen this all before in the passive sublimation of past societies. We recognize the signs of trespasses to come. And if such trespasses are brought upon the liberty movement or the population at large, then many of us will adopt the attitude that there is not much left to lose.

Personally, I do not look forward to this kind of fight, but I have no illusions that it can be avoided given the course our country has taken. Federal agencies have deemed it a matter of national security to watch us all very closely. They should keep in mind, though, that we are also watching them.

A Warning America Ignores

Mob

A serious warning about what you see unfolding before your eyes was given long ago – and sadly, this people are not interested in taking any heed of it- to our own destruction.

We saw this kind of phenomena in 2008.

It is happening again now, only upon the other side of the ideological spectrum.

The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty

George Washington’s Farewell Address

In the current political and cultural environment this nation now exists, it would behoove each of you to read and meditate on George Washington’s warning in respect to how a divided populace at the hands of unprincipled and ambitious leaders creates an atmosphere of hate, contention, fear and chaos that inevitably leads to approving a ruler in whom despotism is firmly established.

It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.

We have had this under Obama since even before his inauguration.  A ‘Community Organizer’ which is nothing more than an Alinskyite Community Agitator that foments jealousy, envy, animosity and rage against those whom Obama has determined are political enemies to be destroyed.   Consider that Al Sharpton, the Muslim Brotherhood and multitudes of other nefarious individuals and groups have facilitated access to the Federal government and in determining policy imposed on the rest of the country via decree or regulation via agencies.

While some candidates will decry Chinese influence in American materialism, most ignore Islamic and Iranian influence over foreign policy emanating from the White House and Pentagon itself.

All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency.

Under Obama, obstruction, refusal and circumventing the execution of existing laws (DOMA, Immigration etc., etc.) under the false pretenses of fairness, welfare, for the children have had as their real designs, the destruction of the culture, the rule of law and of overwhelming of the existing system in order to facilitate it’s collapse.

They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.

And that describes the Washington Uniparty Ruling Class Establishment to perfection, which has given rise to the immense popularity of Outsiders like Trump and Cruz during the current primaries.  Sanders and Hillary are simply Stalin and Trotsky arguing how to better impose Communism to the half of the population that wants what Despotic Socialism promises.

However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

Because of the groundwork of misery established by the existing two party Ruling Class and their various leaders, Trump has become the popular end, a potent and seemingly unstoppable engine whereby cunning, ambitious and unprincipled people could, through the course of time and events, become that which they themselves are attempting to replace.  History teaches that upon the advent of fear, misery and desperation, a people will look to a strong man, a maker of promises and grand statements of plans that the people loft up as a kind of savior, and grant them a kingship over the whole people.

 

This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

Unfortunately, most folks I am debating with have decided that human nature and history no longer applies to us here in the United States, and the will of a zealous mob to loft a man who makes grand promises of Hope and Change, or Make America Great Again, is somehow immaterial and inapplicable to the warnings Washington has given.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.

I have been stating for some time that this nation is on the verge of a Revolution. Not the kind we assume – but the kind of bloodbath France experienced in the late 1700s. The spirit or zeitgeist of revenge, party loyalty and bandwagon in the aftermath of cultural and social upheaval amidst economic hardship always leads to a brutal dictatorship.  The Revolution in France became The Terror, which was followed by the dictatorship of Napoleon followed by absolute ruin and conquest by enemies within and without.

In a time when Islamic Jihadists are building a Caliphate with access to nuclear weapons – the kind of absolute ruin that awaits us here – goes beyond what any other nation has ever faced, and perhaps that will be part of the Judgement being Pronounced upon us by The Almighty Himself and the withholding of His Hedge or Blessing for our abominations to His face.

America Given Over To Strong Delusion

Mob

A mob mentality governs a nation that despises scripture and demands a king for it’s ruler.

“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism.

The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty….

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens….” – George Washington’s Farewell Address

Few will read the above quote from our First President and let his warning sink in as we watch the spectacle and debacle of this election cycle play out in front of us.

It’s 2008 all over again, except this time, instead of the mob ascribing all their hopes for change on a man running with a ‘D’ after his name, they do so with a man running with an ‘R’ after his.

As with the author of the following essay writes, I’m alarmed at the mentality that has swept up the people of this nation. Not so much over a single candidate , rather the insistence that a single man running for office is somehow going to save us all from the consequences we have sown for ourselves so handily in the past several decades.  This is not a hit piece on The Donald, as this author has been appreciative of the ass-kicking Trump has been giving the Establishment.  I’m worried over the mentality that has taken hold of those I at one time thought were on ‘my ideological side’ of the equation.

I ‘m convinced that the Executive will forever now be seen as either a Monarchy or a Dictatorship in the minds of those seig-heiling whatever vaunted political candidate is their messiah. And this is beyond dangerous for what remains of liberty and the tatters of the Constitution that still remain to restrain a federal beast.

For such a people are not capable of freedom or liberty. I perceive this people do not want a Republic or the foundational principles that founded it. They want a king.  They want a savior, and they do not want any of us bringing God into this.  They tell me to leave God in a box at church and shut up about the bible.  They say this is about saving the country,  not going to church.  We are electing a president, not a pastor they insist.

As if choosing a leader who is not governed by biblical and moral principles is a good thing.

As if there was a shred of hope in saving the country devoid of God or the bible.

Fools.

This people  will not accept the fact that if we are not governed by God, we will be ruled by tyrants.  Under the delusion that this people willingly accept, they do not recognize tyranny anymore than they recognize sin.  They justify both as good and right and normal, and who the hell are we to judge?

So they rally to men whom they think will save us and make us great again without the need for any kind of national repentance.

Where I disagree  in part, with this author’s position – is the focus of his realization of strong delusion on the meteoric rise of Trump.  I think if you replace Donald Trump with Barack Hussein Obama – you will conclude this nation has been under strong delusion for some time.

Half the country wants Communism/Socialism.

More than half are comfortable with making a man a dictator or king in order to achieve what they expect their Deliverer to accomplish on their behalf.

America Under A Strong Delusion

… Recently, I have reluctantly come to the realization that Americans, with very few exceptions, are really not interested in facts or logic. We are living among a generation where facts no longer seem to matter.

The truth of the matter is that America is finally under the judgment of God. Our nation has been given over to what it wants. America is under a deluding influence.

Such a deleterious condition cannot be remedied with better and more aggressive public policy arguments. The Scripture teaches that people can go so far in their sin that God finally removes His hand of restraint upon them and finally gives them over to what they want to do. This is the very thing that happened to Pharaoh in the Old Testament. After hardening his own heart several times against God (Exod. 7:13228:1519329:7), God finally hardened Pharaoh’s heart and gave Pharaoh over to what he wanted to do (Exod. 4:219:12).

This removal of divine restraint as a sign of judgment upon a culture is also the key theme of Romans 1:18–32. In this troubling section of the Bible, after people no longer see fit to retain the knowledge of God (Rom. 1:18-23), God is said to repeatedly give them over (Rom. 1:242628) to the sins that they are so eager to commit. The prophet Jeremiah anticipated that same type of turning over by God in his own day when he recorded the following chilling words from the Lord, “As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you” (Jer. 7:16). We see the same type of judgment predicted for the end times as people will be given over to a spirit of delusion that will cause them to embrace the antichrist. Second Thessalonians 2:11–12 says, “For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.”

Why do I believe that America is now at this delicate tipping point? Largely, it is because of the meteoric rise of a person like Donald Trump in American politics. The man is a moral and verbal sewer. He has no political resume. Rather, his campaign has been buoyed by empty promises devoid of any real substance or meaningful content. He merely repeats mantras that the voters want to hear similar to the types of statements that Barack Obama gave us back in 2008.

You know the rhetoric: “I’m going to build a wall around America and make Mexico pay for it.” “We are going to make this country great again.” “Believe me, Americans are going to win again.” “We are actually going to win so many times we are going to get tired of winning.” “Trust me, it is going to be great.” This type of rhetoric seems more akin to that of a used car salesman rather than that of a serious presidential contender.

These sentiments are nothing more than empty slogans since they never reveal exactly how Trump plans to accomplish these great exploits. These are the sorts of trite statements that third world dictators endlessly propagate upon their beleaguered people. In fact, according to Imelda Marcos, the public expression “we are going to make this nation great again” is the very slogan that Ferdinand Marcos articulated just prior to coming to power in the 1950s in the Philippines and prior to Marcos’ imposition of martial law.1

The fact that all the evidence indicates that Trump throughout the course of his entire life really never believed all of the conservative positions that he now supposedly holds2 is really of no consequence to people. When anybody dares to shed light on Trump’s longtime liberal worldview by pointing out that “the king is naked,” they are simply shouted down as a “liar” or victimized by various other ad hominem attacks.

Such was the sum and substance of last Saturday’s Republican Primary debate in South Carolina. The masses really are not interested in information related to Trump’s liberal worldview since they have already made a decision to blindly follow Trump on the basis that he tells them what they want to hear. In fact, the bigger a fool Trump makes of himself on the national stage, the larger his poll numbers seem to climb. This, in and of itself, is perhaps the greatest evidence of the deluding influence that is now descending upon America.

Ask yourself a simple question. How is it possible for Trump to repeat the Michael Moore and Code Pink left wing lunacy that former President George Bush intentionally misled the American people about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq in a recent Republican primary debate and in a conservative state like South Carolina, and have his poll numbers rise and not fall as a result? Such public folly would have been sufficient to derail any Presidential aspirations in prior generations. The only explanation is that the voters are no longer being driven by their mental and rational faculties. Rather, they are being primarily fueled by irrational emotion due to a deluding influence.

I realize that a recent poll showed Cruz leading his primary challengers nationally.3 However, this poll is an aberration with the majority of them showing Trump clobbering his opponents in upcoming primaries.4 What Republican primary voters are apparently on the precipice of doing, if the present poll numbers are an accurate indication, is to reject a Senator Ted Cruz Presidential nomination in exchange for that of a show man and a game show host.

Think about how monumental this is. Ted Cruz is an articulate conservative who has a track record of opposing progressivism not only within the Democratic Party but also in his own Republican party. …..Yet, this kind of man with this kind of record is no longer attractive to the majority of Americans voters. They would much rather embrace the progenitor of a reality TV show. What further evidence do we need to confidently say that America is now under a deluding influence given by God himself as a judgment upon this nation?

Further evidence of God withdrawing his hand from America might also be found in the recent deaths of former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and Theologian Dr. Charles Ryrie. Both of these men were similar in their ambition to honor authorial intent. They were both giants and sources of great spiritual light in their respective fields. What Scalia was to the field of Constitutional interpretation, Ryrie was to the field of biblical theology.

Yet, within the span of a few days, as both men passed, these lights to the culture were removed by the hand of God. In fact, it very well may be that God has raised up Ted Cruz only for the single purpose of being rejected by voters in order to demonstrate once and for all that Americans are under a spiritual delusion.

Like the Ninevites of old, the current generation of Americans apparently are no longer capable of discerning their right hand from their left (Jonah 4:11). Of course, in my heart of hearts, I want to be wrong about all of this. I want to believe that there is still hope for this once great nation. I want to once again trust the good sense of the American electorate.

However, as explained above, I have my doubts.

Obama SCOTUS Appointment Will Neuter Gun Rights

NoMatterCourtRules

This truth is not lost on anyone noting Obama’s radical record and the efforts his regime have made in the last 7 years restricting and harming inalienable rights.

The reason there is such fear among so many Americans over the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, is the very real threat that we now face under the color of law upon what remains of our liberties.

Gun Rights Would Not Survive an Obama-appointment to the Supreme Court

By now, you have no doubt heard that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away on Saturday.

His pro-gun leadership on the Court will be sorely missed.

But we are now in the fight for our lives, as President Obama will try to nominate a replacement to change the balance of the Court.

When ABC’s George Stephanopoulos quizzed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz over Scalia’s replacement, the Senator suggested that our Second Amendment rights are “hanging in the balance.”

Cruz is right.

No one should fail to understand what is at stake in Barack Obama’s scramble to appoint the “swing vote” on the Supreme Court.

If Obama appoints a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, the reconstituted court will declare the Second Amendment dead.

Period.

Those of us who are constitutionalists know that Obama and the Court can’t really obliterate the 2nd Amendment.  The Constitution trumps any unlawful action to the contrary.

But a change in the Court — with the anti-gun decisions that follow — will give the “green light” for all kinds of gun registration and gun bans, resulting in a chilling effect on the exercise of our gun rights.

Heller, the 5-4 decision which recognized the Second Amendment as an individual right, will be reversed.

McDonald, the 5-4 decision which recognized that the Second Amendment applies to the states, will be reversed.

Even sooner, the court will recognize Obama’s illegal efforts to grant amnesty to 5+ million anti-gun voters.

And the consequence will be that the entire U.S. government will soon be the same gun-hating “utopia” which California’s government became as a result of a 1986 amnesty bill.

The Leftist media has already begun their White House-coordinated campaign to bludgeon Senate Republicans into approving Obama’s efforts to pack the Supreme Court with a “jurist” who will repeal the Second Amendment — and achieve Obama’s life-long dream.

But all of their arguments are, transparently, lies and false propaganda.

FIRST: Everyone knows that the Obama appointment would result in the reversal of Heller — and the effective repeal of the Second Amendment — at least, as recognized by a corrupt court system.

SECOND: Obama’s ultimate nominee will lie.

He or she will say that they have no opinion on the Second Amendment.  And they will talk about legal doctrines like stare decisis — which supposedly gives a presumption to retaining “settled law.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor also swore, under oath, that she had no preconceived opinions on the Second Amendment.  But as soon as she got her lifetime appointment, she couldn’t move fast enough to call for the Second Amendment’s repeal.

If there is one thing we have learned from Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and the gaggle of Obama lower court appointees, it is this:  They will say whatever needs to be said to get on the Court, but they will run fast and hard to the Far Left once they are confirmed.

THIRD:  There is no constitutional principle which requires the Senate to approve a lawless nominee.

Besides, Obama has had no problem using the Constitution and the laws as toilet paper.

So he is the last one to lecture others on their “constitutional obligations” — particularly when the goal is to confirm lawless jurists who would rubber-stamp Obama’s unconstitutional and lawless actions…

(more at link)

I would note that is EXACTLY the reason Obama appointed Elena Kagan to SCOTUS – to ensure ObamaCare was protected and for the express and sole purpose of imposing Obama’s agenda while on the High Court.

That Obama will appoint another Communist/Maoist/Socialist to the Bench is as certain as the sun coming up tomorrow.  When the Senate gives into Obama as they have on every occasion, they will rule that your right to self defense and arms is a government privilege that can be restricted, banned, regulated and abolished.  Mark my words.

You simply need to remember that your rights are inalienable.  They come from God and His Court.  No matter what the court rules, no matter what this tyrannical government dictates or what legislation is passed in the middle of the night – it is your duty to ignore whatever tyrannical impositions they dictate under the color of “law”.

Your Rights Do Not Come By Grant Of The Courts Or Government

Your Rights Do NOT Come From The Constitution Either. The Constitution exists to PROTECT Them FROM the government

As the country heads into the abyss of complete totalitarianism under the color of law, the following two wallpapers are provided as a public service to the truth most Americans are now willfully ignorant and willfully blind to.
