A Conservative Party No More

Trumpanzeesrule

The Republican Party revealed itself as indistinguishable from the Democrat Party while demonstrating it’s hostility to First Principles under the Trump/Establishment Partnership last week.

Take courage fellow Constitutional Conservatives, Truth has willed itself out.

Last week was not just a repudiation of your foundational principles by an entire party – but a confirmation that the party you called ‘home’ is not what you thought it was.  It has not been for some time.

I admire Ted Cruz.  He gained my utmost respect with what he did last Wednesday night.   The vitriol and hatred being flung at him, his wife, his family and all of us by the GOP and Trump himself, is just another example of a nation and culture that hates what was once considered the pillars of virtue, morality and righteousness.

What transpired last week was validation that a resignation from the GOP is perfectly warranted.  The continuous and relentless attacks on Ted Cruz and Constitutional Conservatives who will not pledge fealty to Trump and the party continues to illustrate that it is not Hillary they fear and despise – but you and me.

That said, there are some Conservatives already talking about a Cruz candidacy in 2020.  I think the sloganeering for Cruz in 2020 is a bit off-putting.  Conservatives do not get wrapped up in cults of personality and assert they can save us and the nation.   Marxists do that.  Fascists (or if you prefer, Nationalist Populists) do that.

If you take time to seriously realize what is happening – this is no longer simple party politics.  You are witnessing the absolute END of a Republic and the start of something frightening and dangerous in terms of your near future and the future of liberty.

That the phrase “defend the Constitution” is booed by delegates at a Convention of a party that portrays itself as it’s only defender (simply because they hate the man speaking it), was as revealing to what the Trump phenomena is all about as anything else you could ever demand in terms of a sign.

It’s time to get sober because all of this is not some sporting event where you can rah-rah your team, have a beer and go home to bed later drunk and happy.  We’ve been fundamentally transformed, and we have all been played.

Sloganeering Cruz in 2020 is absurd considering you are watching the permanent entrenchment of a Ruling Class oligarchy under the false guise of an everyman outsider businessman who will fix all that ails us. The mobs want a monarchy from both the Left and the populist nationalist right.   Constitutional Conservatives are in exodus and in the wilderness.  You are witness to the death of a party and a Republic by an overwhelming majority of the population that no longer has any reverence or use for the foundational principles and the documents that safeguarded liberty.  They want a king.  It’s all about the man, or the woman, or loyalty to a party instead of once solid principles or values.  The absolute absurd and ridiculous efforts made to justify the egregious and the affronts to those principles demonstrates the total abandonment of the pillars of our liberty by both major parties.

They will claim them, and pay lip service to them, but the fruits are easily discernible to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

This is a day to mourn.  Not a day to proclaim a new president, a new savior or caesar for 2020.

A nation has to be re-evangelized to the religious heritage it has discarded and the foundational principles it has abandoned.  A nation has to repent of it’s waywardness.  But the mobs clamoring for Hillary or Trump see no need for such things.  Indeed, even their champions themselves see no need for such humility under God because they see themselves as the means to perfection.  They despise “bible thumpers” and portray anyone suggesting a return to First Principles as religious fanatics who pose a danger to freedom and the separation of church and state.

These nominees reflect the culture and this people.  It’s time to get real about that and stop fooling yourselves that we are a majority, because if we were – the majority has surrendered to ideologies and leaders who are anathema to everything we stood for, replacing them for empty promises of vengeance, walls and punishments to sate their feelings.  And no marvel, for the churches and religious institutions themselves are dwindling in attendance and influence. Government has become god.  Men are made messiahs and saviors.

Cruz has indeed manifested himself as a leader of the kind of Conservatism we still believe in and make us who we are, and he can do well to preach it.  Because until we return to becoming a religious and moral people, we have no hope of having decent leaders, because this people and the mobs will reject them for worse and more heinous wicked ones.  Being deceived and doing the deceiving because they delight in the season of unrighteousness under a sole ruler who is their own authority.

A people have to be won to the principles we once shared before we can give any thought to someone like a Cruz being elected a leader that can administer a nation.

I am not alone in similar sentiment.  Andrew McCarthy shares his views as well:

It’s Not My Party

…..Take away the conservatism, the limited-government constitutionalism, the devotion to liberty, the fiscal discipline, the clear-eyed recognition of America’s enemies, and what are you left with? A Republican party whose only real boast is that it can do statism with more adult moderation than the hard Left that has captured the Democratic party.

Do Not Be Deceived – This Election Is Not Going To Save Us

Monarchy

The Republic is already lost and gone.

We had a velvet coup – no one noticed, no one believes it. Yet the evidence is all there, right in your faces – and everyone pretends it’s not so. Factions and party cheering the shell game to preserve the facade of what we once were, while the masterminds play us all like cards.

Half the population has made government their god, and the other half is looking to make their chosen political messiah, king.  More than two-thirds of the country now look at the Office of President as a quasi-monarchy; a defacto dictatorship that will benefit them and their causes.  This fact is made self-evident by the numbers of people who assume that their candidate will be able to do all the things they campaign on via diktat:  Make the sea levels fall; stop the Climate; Build a wall, make Mexico pay for it;  punitive tariffs; punish banks; redistribute wealth; ban guns etc., etc., etc.  They care not for whatever character flaws, past associations, past positions or wavering statements their Chosen makes.  He/She/It will lead them and theirs to the promised land of prosperity to those who salute and support their Chosen, and everlasting punishment for those who are declared traitors for failure to prostrate themselves before their One.

The hatred and vitriol being flung at everyone who does not support their political messiah, has reached levels of frightening proportion:  Death threats; banning from social media and forum sites;  Lawsuits; Promises of retribution; calls for Party purging of those who will not bend the knee to the presumptive nominee.

Everything you are witnessing right now, are the death throes of a civil society fast devolving into the morass of anarchy, tribalism and Statism.

It’s what history teaches every failed republic goes through right before sown seeds of chaos and massive upheaval gives way to an oppressive dictatorship that a majority applauds for the empty promise of order, sustenance and revenge. You already hear and see those sentiments being expressed.

We are weak. Divided. Immoral. Ignorant. Unthinking. Unprincipled and infected with a fatal case of Normalcy Bias.

The consequences of which we are just beginning to feel.

Is that harsh?  Yes. But the truth often is.

Sadly, as history also teaches – the vast, vast majority – never wants to hear it, and often set upon those trying to warn and plead with them.

This election is not going to save us. We saw our last legitimate national election in 2008.

You cannot stop tyranny by civil means, PERIOD.  Neither can you enjoy the blessings of liberty when most of the nation no longer shares your core principles or culture.  Saving a rotting culture and discarded Republic are not possible without repentance, which even few churches and leaders are even willing to mention, much less implore. Instead we have intolerant “tolerance”, Chrislam, Black Lives Matters, Nationalist Populism and Democratic Socialism. Any opposition surrenders itself wholesale to threats or tears itself apart in virulence unseen towards those whom perpetrated their servitude.

We have yet to reap what we have already sown, and God is not going to hear a nation’s pleas in calamity when it has discarded Him.

Instead, He is going to laugh at us because He has given us over to our own ways. Proverbs 1:24-32

Truly this people demand to do what is right in their own eyes and destroy those who dare attempt to restrain their passions .  Whether it be killing their unborn, identifying themselves as the opposite sex so as to play pervert in public bathrooms, or force those “holy rollers” to participate in their wickedness and celebrate it by force of law, the vast majority turn an indifferent eye while an activist minority grow ever-more violent at any perceived slight.    The people seig-heil the candidate who affirms wickedness and denounces those as evil whom plead with a people to reconcile themselves to righteousness, to recapture and cherish a morality and heritage they no longer consider valid because “pragmatism” trumps principle.

Ever the speed of our demise increases with each passing day – and most refuse to even consider the consequence of what we have already done and permitted.

The Cup of Iniquity runneth over, and The Almighty Lord of All Creation will laugh at us when our next 9-11 befalls us.

If this makes you angry – your problem is with the truth and perhaps your faith is in men and their institutions, which gets to the actual root cause of why we have arrived at this point to begin with.

America On The Edge Of Eruption And Chaos

allfalldown

You are living in the midst of the collapse of the American civil society. The Republic is already gone and lost.  What comes next, will astound and horrify everyone who is not given over to strong delusion.

You feel it.  You see it.  You read it.

It’s all beginning to unravel, exactly as designed and intended by those who rule us.  They have knowingly set the myriad  fuses to the powder keg alight and what they now intend, defies your ability to comprehend, even when their plans are hiding in plain sight.

Anger, fear, aggression, intolerance in the name of tolerance, radical zeal for political messiahs, racial strife, gender insanity, cultural calamity, all happening during an ongoing  global economic collapse amidst fundamental transformation of the West that the vast majority of your neighbors and countrymen pretend is not happening, or is not that important to worry about.

The representative Constitutional Republic we were established as, is gone.  Oh some still pay it lip service to it in the halls of power, but just as II Timothy 3 reveals the cultural rot of the last days – so too does America acknowledge the form of a Constitution, but they deny it’s power and application.  The Democrat Party went full Marxist-Communist while the Republican Party fully funded and empowered a Dictatorship of a pen and a phone then went to war against their own constituents in order to have a seat at the table of the new order.

Most Americans have been brainwashed to think we are a democracy, mob rule that can change our foundational underpinnings whenever the mood strikes.  Who needs a First Amendment when society demands safe zones from any speech and biblical religious exercise they hate?  Who needs a Constitution When the Ruling Class and Agitators stoke the masses into demanding rulings, policies and actions be imposed to placate their appetites and stoke their zeal for punishment of those they have been told to hate?

We are openly lectured by a presidential candidate that we should be transformed into a “Socialist Democracy”, of which we already are in all practicality – but many now want to make that official.  Imbecillic morons who leech like parasites off the remaining producers in the country zealously demand the empty promises of Marxists hawking overt Communism and are eager to wage violence to demand it’s implementation in full.

More than half a population that hates the country they live in, demands freebies and entitlements at our expense while abusing the very programs supposedly meant to help them.  They demand more. They insist on more.  Then they insist they be absolved of any responsibility, and others should pay for their delights.   The nation’s economy is already in the early stages of collapse as trillions upon trillions are wasted by dependent slaves like this moron (make sure you see the last 15 seconds after this disgusting display of irresponsibility):

And the rulers demand more people like the above be granted your property and your wealth, because they say it is their right to take your wealth and your stuff because you are the wrong color, the wrong religion and your intolerant bigotry must be met with government-imposed intolerance and punishment.

Eventually and soon – the milk and honey train will come to an abrupt halt as it has in most Socialist utopias like Venezuela.  And just as we saw in Greece and Europe – conflagration and upheaval erupts, violence, bloodshed and the cries for a strong dictator to promise order and a return to a chicken in ever pot and a Smart Phone in every hand ensues.  We are already in this process of collapse, witnessing the complete and catastrophic eruption of rage and revenge that is going to grow more pronounced, more virulent and widespread as the days wane on.

BLM:Blckpanthers

And I have not even mentioned the Caliphate, Jihadist Islam and Iran with nuclear weapons yet.

Monstrous events in such an environment usually trigger the societal powder keg to detonate, and usually the blast is much larger than even the experts suggest it will be.

But if you understand the genocidal game being played by the masterminds, the question of how to eradicate and kill tens of millions of useless eaters that the Ruling Class is convinced will not come along quietly to the new order that fundamental transformation has irrevocably initiated, everything happening suddenly becomes clear.

Then later, in the ruins of misery – the echoes of Bonhoffer and Rand and Satayana will ring in our ears if there is anyone left whose understanding of the world was not limited to TMZ and the Kardashians.

 

“Upon closer observation, it becomes apparent that every strong upsurge of power in the public sphere, be it of a political or a religious nature, infects a large part of humankind with stupidity. … The power of the one needs the stupidity of the other. The process at work here is not that particular human capacities, for instance, the intellect, suddenly atrophy or fail. Instead, it seems that under the overwhelming impact of rising power, humans are deprived of their inner independence and, more or less consciously, give up establishing an autonomous position toward the emerging circumstances. The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn, must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, one virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with him as a person, but with slogans, catchwords, and the like that have taken possession of him. He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil. This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human beings.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Papers from Prison

A conflagration is imminent. What sets it off – is yet to be seen as there are so many lit fuses flaring up, crackling and sputtering their way to the big keg of black powder that this nation has become.

Ruins, ala Rome is a guaranteed future for us all at this point.

Society is reaching critical mass

By Robert Arvay

There is a limit to how much stress can be put on something before it is finally and irreversibly destroyed.  It goes by several different names.  Critical mass, tipping point, and system overload are but a few.  In each case, the term refers to an event that finally breaks the camel’s back (to use yet another term for the same thing).

Society is not merely reaching its critical mass; it is reaching it so swiftly that predictably, there will be an abrupt and catastrophic breakdown of historic proportions, eclipsing even the fall of the Roman Empire.

This is not hyperbole.  In modern times, humanity has witnessed such catastrophes.  The French Revolution with its resultant Reign of Terror was followed in later years by the Communist Revolution in Russia and even later by the rise of fascism in Germany and Japan.  Each of these events unleashed apocalyptic death and destruction.  Nor were they the end of it.

Today, however, the event is taking place in a form both more subtle and more explosive than ever before.  It is not merely the political, economic, and military structures being overturned, but the very core and foundation of humanity itself: the human psyche.

There is no need to list the examples of that.  The litany of social upheavals eroding family, morals, and education in America and Europe is well known to those who follow such things.  Likewise, the accelerating advance of technology has affected us all in its breathtaking speed.  Beyond that, radical Islamist terrorism has become destructive not merely in terms of its death toll, but also in the fact that it has become the hate that dare not mention its name.

And therein is encapsulated the nature of the catastrophe about to engulf us.  We are faced not with an enemy we cannot defeat, but with one we dare not offend.  Almost literally, we have met the enemy, and he is us.

The modern American fascists do not wave swastika banners; they go to court to force ordinary citizens to (for example) participate in same-sex wedding ceremonies by providing services to them, whether bakery or photography.  Merely to quote the Bible can bring about civil, even in some cases criminal penalties.  Students on college campuses are not free to state their political preference if that preference is Donald Trump.  Why?  Because some of their fellow students feel “threatened.”

The backlash has up until recently been silent.  That is changing.  The Sanders and Trump candidacies are merely the rumblings of a volcano preparing to erupt.  People are fed up.

No one can predict exactly what the spark will be that sets off the powder keg.  All we can say with certainty is that there is a powder keg, and there is a lit fuse.

Boom.

Peasants Rouseth A Worm Frometh The Pit!

TrumpDragon

Forsooth! Cometh Dragons whose fierce breath the rabble pray slayeth the Knights ’round the Moat Potomac of thine Kingdome of Beltway

Whilst I nay pledge Trump as my liege lord, the Serfs riseth behind the Breedbate to agauw the Nobles and terror taketh their thought.

Pay ear to thine minstrel who telleth the tale thou fop doodles nay understandeth we afterlings rage at the royal Beltway banners!

 

It Cometh from the Pit:And Hath a Knout

by  Fred Reed

fairykingdom

Once upon a time there was a fairy kingdom that lived inside a place called The Beltway, and was surrounded on all four sides by a land called America. The Beltway was aligned with another kingdom called Manhattan, inhabited by disembodied heads that spoke from the walls of bars, and with with yet another closed kingdom called Hollywood, the abode of half-educated narcissists. These kingdoms were in eternal political syzygy, and spoke not with the people of the surrounding lands, of whom they knew nothing. The following is a chronicle of what befell them, and why.

After years of peace, the Kingdoms were taken greatly aback by the rise of the Trump Monster, their surprise being proof that they knew nothing of the surrounding lands. They knew nothing for good reasons, of which there were two. The first was that they passed their lives with each other and among each other and talking to each other and writing about each other and reading about each other behind the high walls of their kingdoms. In organs like National Review and The Weekly Standard they endlessly wrote stories of the form “A soothsayer in Manhattan replies to what some other sayer of sooths said about yet another’s attack on someone else.”

They had all dwelt in monasteries called Harvard and Princeton, where they learned that they were the wisest of men, and inerrant. They had no idea that they were hated in the strange lands without the walls, which on their maps were drawn as fog with notations such as “Here dwelleth dragons.” They did not know that there were people who agreed not with them. For were they not right about all things?

The other reason for their puzzlement was a powerful spell called “Political Correctness.” This strong magic prevented the outlanders from saying anything that the Three Kingdoms did not want to hear.
Anyone who engaged incantations called “slurs,” which were truthful thoughts about sacred tribes, or who said Inappropriate Things about a certain little country whose only importance was being that little country, was thrown into durance vile. Thus the Three Kingdoms never heard anything they didn’t like, and so believed that almost everyone without the walls loved them. They had scarce an idea what furies were roiling and boiling and stirring under the surface of the Outer Realms.

Now, until the Trump Monster appeared, the America was ruled by a pseudo-democracy of one bicephalous party with two names. The Only Party consisted of blackguards and Quislings and pickpockets bought and paid for by the plutocratic oligarchy of large corporations, AIPAC, and the. very rich. These told the two halves of the One Party what to do. Every four years there was played a great tournament in which candidates of the Two Names of the One Party engaged in the most savage combat imaginable. This was to distract the people outside the walls . Afterwards nothing changed and all went on as before, though the division of the spoils shifted a bit.

And in their ignorance and pride the Three Kingdoms engendered a monster called Trump, and it bit them.

The Only Party had always controlled the villeins because it controlled the choice of pretenders to the throne. A pretender gained the Presidency by buying it, and the rich who provided that money controlled as vassals those who accepted it. The pretenders were as straw and melons sold in a market.

Furthermore, the scribes and oracles of the Kingdoms said aloud only those things that were meet for the surrounding peasantry to hear. The puissant spell of Political Correctness amounted to a societal mute button and prevented the Holy Orders within the Three Kingdoms from noticing what stirred without.

Until the Trump Monster came raging, slouching toward Bethlehem, with which the Kingdoms confused themselves.

And there was afright and desperation and rending of teeth and gnashing of hair for many were the rice bowls threatened.

The darkest of horrors was that the serfs might come to choose the manner of their government. For long years the Bicephalous Party had presided over that most desirable form of democracy in which the people had no power. This laudable state they had maintained by never talking about anything of substance, such as unending wars in remote lands beyond the edges of the maps, or the importation of slaves from curious and unwholesome countries or the manufactures of all things by foreign dwarves.

A great broil ensured. The people saw for the first time a chance to manage their destinies and rose up for the Trump Monster. Inside the Beltway, the Wise and Good–for did they not so denominate themselves?–were greatly astonished. “What manner of wight can this be?” they asked in wonder. They said that the Trump Monster was beguiling fools, the cracked, and those who represented the worst in America. And the scribes and oracles were sore afraid, for most of the outlying populace appeared to belong to these tribes.

One of the Two Names of the One Party, the Democrats, sent forth a dreadful creature called Hillary to fight in single combat with the Trump Monster. Her very visage turned men to stone, it was said. She was held to be of one blood with Boadicea, Jeanne d’Arc, Lucretia Borgia, and Bonnie Parker.

The Three Kingdoms were at one with her, as she was corrupt, mendacious, criminal, and ugly, as well as suffering coughing fits and dizzy spells. Surely, said the scribes and oracles, any monster must fly screaming from her mere presence.

Yet it seemed that the Trump was no common monster. Every time he was beset by the scribes and oracles of the Beltway, he grew stronger, and a sulfurous smoke breathed from his mouth. With drawn swords the Trump Monster and the crumbling ruin yclept Hillary circled each other.

And beyond the parapets and crenellations of the Three Kingdoms the sky grew darker. Inside the Beltway and in Manhattan, the disembodied heads railed and raged, but with every blast the helots jointed the Trump Monster in larger numbers, for they hated the Insiders. In Hollywood the Half-Educated Narcissists said ever stupider things, but these had not their usual effect.

In their pride the Three Kingdoms had engendered Nemesis, and they watched in terror behind the ramparts as the sky grew darker and strange shapes twisted in the looming clouds and the Trump Monster strode ever nearer, breathing fire.

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.

roman_ruins

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.

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.

GOP Joins Obama To Attack Trump, Cruz, Conservatives

RubberStampGOP

Last Night’s pathetic GOP “Response” to Obama’s Castro-esque SOTU was proof positive that America is ruled by a single Uniparty Statist Politburo that openly wars upon anyone not in their Elitist ‘club’.

Of note: neither Obama or Nikki Haley made mention of the Act of War Iran perpetrated on us yesterday in the capture and humiliation of U.S. Sailors.  We can expect John Kerry to ‘apologize’ and/or ‘thank’ Iran if they are released.

Feckless, appeasement surrender monkeys not only apply to Obama’s Amerika towards Islamists, but applies to the Republican Party itself, that has allied itself with Obama’s agenda.

Best case: The GOP is truly the Stupid Party.  It committed suicide long ago.  Bury the stinking carcass already.  It’s dead Jim.

Actual case: The Republican Party is simply the ‘moderate’ wing of the Socialist/Marxist Democrat totalitarians, and have joined their velvet coup of the country.  The Republican Party has become every bit an enemy of liberty and freedom as Obama and his cabal of Leftist/Communist/Islamist minions are.

We will come to learn that the Republican party needed to be destroyed and rendered irrelevant as the WHIGs that they have become.  They will not permit their party to be reformed by grassroots Conservative Patriotic Americans.  They will invent and perpetrate ways to fortify their ivory towers that enable the GOP to continue to engage in crony Fascism.

Please note, the entire Republican leadership and party loyalists are the people who demand illegal immigration, open borders and are the originators of “Islam is a religion of Peace’ B.S. mantra.  At the same time they have declared war on Conservatives defining us to be ‘a scourge”; ‘Satanic’; ‘Apocalyptic’; ‘xenophobic’ – terms the GOP NEVER uses on Democrats or Obama.

‘Republican’ analyst David (Crease-In-Obama’s-Pants) Brooks said Obama’s speech was triumphant as FDR, and issued an epic rant that Cruz and Trump are Satanic and ‘Apocalyptic’.

The GOP Leadership has repeatedly made it clear that they will not tolerate any ‘outsiders’ from among the ‘country class’ Conservatives they disdain from achieving high office.  Neither will they permit a self-made and self-funded eccentric billionaire that is not beholden to them to be the nominee of their ‘closed’ party.  GOP leadership and loyalists have already stated openly that it will sabotage, destroy and even endorse and vote for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders if Trump or Cruz manage to overcome all the corruption and achieve the nomination of their Party.    The Republican leadership would rather see the nation burned to the ground, run by Communists or overthrown by Islamists and/or Mexicans than see someone like Trump or Cruz become president.

Watch.  They are doing all they can to see to it that Jeb is gifted the nomination.  Even if they have to rig polls in concert with the Leftist mainstream media, create bogus charges to derail their campaigns and if needs be, hijack the convention to remove Trump or Cruz.  The Republican Establishment does this because they hate them and those of us who support Cruz and Trump more than they do the people and ideologies that are hostile to liberty and the Constitution, of which they have already surrendered.

Americans have the entire apparatus of Federal government, the entire praetorian Pravda media, the Republican Party leadership and the Marxist Democrats being used against us as weapons to achieve our subjugation under their rule.  Overcoming all of these agents of our destruction is not going to happen via a single election, even if Trump or Cruz is ever sworn in, but overcoming them all is going to be necessary if we ever want our posterity to breathe any semblance of freedom in their lifetimes.

Nikki Haley uses State of Union response to bash Trump and praise illegals

According to her prepared remarks, Haley said:

During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices,” she will say, suggesting that Trump is an irrational, angry person who dislikes foreigners.

“We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country,” says the speech.

This is code for welcoming illegal aliens.  This is how liberals talk: they claim that illegals haven’t broken any laws if they haven’t broken any additional laws besides entering the country illegally.  Nikki, they aren’t abiding by our laws if they came here legally.  And they certainly aren’t abiding by our traditions if they don’t learn English.  And we don’t dislike “foreigners”; we dislike “foreigners” who are here illegally, a distinction that eludes liberals, and apparently Nikki Haley.

If anyone wanted incontrovertible proof of what I just laid out:

White House heaps praise on Haley after SOTU response 

The GOP is every bit the enemy of We The People that the Democrat Marxist Party is.
