Biden: What to Expect

January 19, 2021

NOTE: Be sure to watch the hopeful video at the end of this post.

This election has been nothing short of a coup d’état—a full and complete take-over of America.  This is not hyperbole, this is reality.  Don’t think so?  Read on.

Democrats delightedly screech: “Biden won! Get over it!”  How ironic and deplorable.  They still have not gotten over Trump’s 2016 election win.  They spent every day and every hour harassing, attacking, convicting the man of the people, and his family.  They were and are despicable human beings (but redeemable).

Was America given one last chance to turn from its wicked ways through the presidency of Donald Trump?  Perhaps.  Time will tell, but will not be far off.  The Democratic rumblings throughout his presidency and personal assaults upon him, his family and those that support him, provided clear indication of the Democratic intent for America.  Early proclamations from the presumed Biden administration and gleeful Democratic politicians affirms that they seek full revenge against Trump and his followers.  They will have no restrictions; no barriers.  They will have the law, military, media, the UN and every evil force at their command.

Unity? Democrats have never been about unity.  They are about the destruction of the Republic.  Unity for Democrats means destroying the opposition. Throughout the Obama and Trump Administrations, Democratic law makers/legislators proved one thing: they are obnoxious, vile members of Congress.  Whenever someone was giving testimony before them, they rudely cut the person’s testimony off and viciously attacked their credibility if they were not getting the responses they wanted.  During the Trump years the Democrats accomplished nothing except to continually and vivaciously attack President Trump and his family.

During his eight years in office, Mr. Obama was the Divider-in-Chief.  He never missed an opportunity to cause division between whites and people of color.  Between the rich and the middle and lower income.  Between Christians and all others.  He hated America then and he still hates what America stands for as a constitutional republic.

The laundry list of what Democrats plan to do to destroy America is way too long to fully discuss here in detail.  So, I will just have to settle for listing them as the Democrats and Joe Biden have expressed their desires and plans.  The list is not exhaustive—unfortunately.

Politics.  Democrats want to dominate the country’s politics at the federal, state and local levels.  They are not looking for compromise through valued discussion.  It’s their way or the highway.  They will ruthlessly demean, ridicule and castigate any dissenters.  It is tyrannical rule at its finest.

Social Media.  They want total control of social media and to purge all conservatives, Christians and non-conformers from any such platform.  To that extent, Biden has already appointed a couple of leftist social media bigwigs to his cabinet.

News Media.  The majority of the news media has been in the Democrats’ hip pocket for a long time.  It just became abundantly clear under President Trump how bad it was.  Now, the venerated, conservative darling, Fox News, has fallen victim to the Democratic swamp creatures. Will there be any place left for conservative citizens to get true news? Democrats not only want total control of the media, they want non-Democrats to be “re-educated” to their truth.  Smell communism, folks?

Financial.  They want to continue to destroy America’s financial structure.  Granted, America is already fundamentally bankrupt.  However, nothing in the Biden agenda will alleviate America’s insurmountable debt, only exasperate it. Under the Biden team, the doors to the Federal sweet shop will be swung wide open with goodies for all, especially their corporate cronies and favorite foreigners. Even some of his leftist observers are already saying that his trillions in planned spending will lead to millions being unemployed.  Yet, his Democrat buddies are squealing for more.  It’s too little, they say.  It needs to gargantuan; mammoth; gigantic.

Deep State/Democratic Tyrannical/Marxist Agenda:

  • Destroy gun rights & 2nd Amendment.  Democrats hate guns more than the criminals that use them.
  • Destroy the Bill of Rights.  There’s nothing here that is cherished by the Democrats.
  • Eliminate the Electoral College.  This has been their objective ever since whiney Hillary lost.  They can continue to fraudulently manipulate the popular vote.  The Electoral College, not so much.  They will continue to push for mail-in voting and other non-personal methods to secure their spurious elections.
  • Destroy America’s fossil fuel industry and leadership.  Under President Trump, America, for the first time in many decades, became energy independent.  Democrats want to destroy that lofty achievement.
  • Unlimited immigration & open borders.  Immigrants from all over are already marching toward our southern border by the tens of thousands (criminals and terrorists included).  Will a Biden Administration tear down Trump’s wall?  Will their hatred of Trump blind them to the safety of American citizens?
  • Non-citizens allowed to vote.  On day 1 of the Biden Administration, Biden has pledged to speed up the citizenship path for eleven million illegal immigrants already in the United States.
  • Sexual perversion and education of America’s children.  Biden has made it clear that he will push forward the Democratic godless LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual and/or Ally) agenda—just in case you were wondering what the letters stand for.
  • Destroying free speech.  Democrats and their perverted, evil allies have made it clear, they do not want to hear from anyone who has an opposing view.  Big Tech and the Democrats want to completely shut down the conservative point of view. Not only that, they want to punish those who disagree with them. You either embrace their Marxist viewpoint or you shut up or risk being harassed or imprisoned.  Sounds fair. Welcome to Sino-America, the new puppet country of China.
  • Suppressing churches and their Biblical preaching.  During COVID-19, Democrats saw how easy it was to silence churches and synagogues.  They will do it again, unless pastors boldly take a stand.
  • Wasting trillions on the false “Green New Deal.”  One of the most ridiculous false and misleading narratives of the Democrats is the idea that man can control the climate of the world.  You want to control CO2 emissions?  Stop driving your limos and flying on private jets everywhere.  Plant more trees and other CO2 sucking green plants.  Get over your god-complex.  You too, Mr. Gates.  Oh, and rejoining the Paris Climate Accord in order to throw trillions of taxpayer dollars into the abyss.
  • Open doors for America’s enemies; soft on China, Russia, Iran, et al.  Trump got tough on America’s enemies—the toughest since World War II—and our enemies hated him for it.  Now their licking their chops at the prospects of a Biden crime syndicate ruling the country where, for a price, anything will be for sale. Biden will renew the dangerous Iranian deal.
  • Putting Muslims in leadership.  Biden has vowed, just like his ventriloquist, Obama, to put more Muslims in his Administration—preferably Muslim Brotherhood types, no doubt.
  • Teach Islam in public schools.  Biden is on record in saying that he wants Islam taught in all public schools.  Will that be before or after the class on Christianity and Judaism?
  • Provide an open door to Islamic terrorism.  With the Democrats history, both past and current, on crime and terrorists, will terrorists (Islamic and others) now have a walk in the park? Remember, Obama had all Federal manuals and communications stripped of any terms critical of Islam.  Biden sat under his Islamic tutelage for eight years.
  • Socialized medicine and deteriorating health care.  COVID, no doubt, will be the open door to re-introduce to Americans the necessity of socialized medicine and health care.  Trump vehemently opposed it and worked at abolishing all vestiges of it. Obama/Biden cannot wait to slam it down the collective throats of Americans once again.  What will you do if THE vaccine becomes mandatory?  No buying; no selling; no travelling unless you comply.
  • Destroy the Trump economy.  Democrats are so insane with their hatred of Trump (Trump Derangement Syndrome is real), that they want to destroy everything he did, no matter how beneficial to the country and its citizens.  Remember Trump’s full employment economy; minority enterprise zones, etc.  What COVID did not destroy, the Democrats will. It will all evaporate.
  • Packing the Supreme Court by adding more justices.  Democrats are already putting pressure on an aging conservative Supreme Court jurist to retire so they can appoint one of their Marxist breed.  The ultimate dream is to install Marxist judges across America & the Supreme Court.  They want to increase the number of jurists on the U.S. Supreme Court and turn it viciously radical and anti-Constitution.
  • Weaken law enforcement and the military.  Remember the “Defund the Police” movement during the Floyd riots?  It is far from dead.  Democrats across America will rekindle the flame.
  • Permanent mask wearing, social distancing and destroying of America’s social fabric. When was the last time you saw a smiling face in town or at your local store? Remember when the fake doctor Fauci said masking up would be temporary? Well, it’s almost a year and no end in sight.  In fact, Biden has pledged to continue the ruse at least for another 100 days.  Once proud Americans have become one big herd of docile sheep.  BAAAAAD!
  • Further lockdowns and destruction of small business.  Think the lockdowns have ceased?  I fear not.  Democrats know a good crisis when they see it.  They scared people witless. That’s how they won the election.  Well, in addition to fraudulent voting.
  • Continue to destroy millions of babies and support it worldwide.  The Biggy that God will never forgive America for unless we repent and stop it.  Democrats have yet to see a baby not worth snuffing out before and after they are born.
  • Destroy rural America. Country folk are hard to impress, oppress and control.  So, just destroy their social fabric, faith and businesses.  That will do it.
  • Oppression and arrests of Conservatives.  As if censoring the free speech of conservative Americans is not enough, some Democrats want them punished or sent to re-education camps (no lie) for having the audacity to vote against the shyster Democratic machine.
  • Further divide America. Through continued and incessant false racial narratives, accusations and hyperbole, the Democrats will continue to keep tightening their thumb screws on America’s racial relations.  Not since the days of Selma have racial tensions been so high, and we have Obama and his hate-filled ilk to thank.  Oh, but now they can divide Americans between the “Thoughtfully-concerned-for-my-fellow-American” mask wearer and the hateful, rebellious dregs of society, the dreaded non-mask wearer.
  • Destroy American history. Thanks to the socialist Democrats, true American history is not taught in our public schools.  Permitting the further destruction of America’s history and historical statues and monuments will be a top agenda item to appease their BLM and Antifa (fascist) cohorts.  Democrats are even talking about forcing their radical educational agenda on private religious schools.
  • Remove all reference to God from our Pledge, court houses, schools, etc. There’s no question that the majority of Democrats seem to despise God. Even the pastors they bring in to pray in the rotunda mock God with a recent pastor ending his prayer with “Amen and awomen” to race reviews by Democrats.
  • Totally control the media and Big Tech.  The Democratic/Marxist dream child is one where no one has an idea or opinion but them. No freedom of the press or Internet.  No freedom of expression on any level.
  • Assuring that Republicans will not be elected again.  In addition to trying to destroy President Trump’s political future and that of other top GOP members, the Democrats are hot to give DC, Puerto Rico, and maybe other U.S. protectorates seats in Congress.  That way they hope to ensure there will never be another Republican president or Congress.
  • Coddle America’s enemies at home and abroad.  Pay close attention. Protect yourself and family.
  • Riddle the U.S. Constitution until it is worthless and unrecognizable. Remember, under the Obama Administration, Democrats claimed that the U.S. Constitution was “fluid”, ready to be manipulated as seen fit by them.

The list is almost endless, but I will stop here so you do not get a migraine.  Perhaps a book should be forthcoming.

Americans, what were you thinking when you voted for Biden?  It would appear you were not thinking about the future of your country.

Very Important. Needless to say, pray fervently for America.  Pray for repentance and revival in the Church in America.  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17).  And, yes, pray for Biden and all the hate-filled, despotic members of Congress as well as those in your state.  Just because they and their actions are despicable, does not mean that we do not pray for them—for their conversion to the truth of God’s Word; that they resist being pawns of the evil one; that the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ be revealed to them.  Can I get an “Amen”?

One more thing.  Take the time to watch this insightful video with Amir Tsarfati and Jack Hibbs.  If you do not know Christ as your Lord and Savior, now is the time.

Patriot Quotes for Today

January 18, 2021

It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail. The religion and public liberty of a people are intimately connected; their interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together. For this reason, it is always observable, that those who are combin’d to destroy the people’s liberties, practice every art to poison their morals.

Samuel Adams (1722-1803), second cousin to John Adams, and known as the Father of   the American Revolution, wrote in the Boston Gazette on December 2, 1771

I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.

Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Ludlow, September 6, 1824

 As riches increase and accumulate in few hands, as luxury prevails in society, virtue will be in a greater degree considered as only a graceful appendage of wealth, and the tendency of things will be to depart from the republican standard. This is the real disposition of human nature; it is what neither the honorable member nor myself can correct. It is a common misfortunate that awaits our State constitution, as well as all others.

            Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804), a Founding Father and the first Secretary of the Treasury under President George Washington, was a renowned interpreter of the U.S. Constitution.  In his impassioned speech at New York’s Constitution Ratifying   Convention on June 21, 1788.

            . . . the only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.

Dr. Benjamin Rush, 1798; signer of the Declaration of Independence; educator

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.

            Benjamin Franklin, the consummate multi-tasker and signer of both the Declaration of             Independence and the United States Constitution, penned in a letter on April 17, 1787

Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness.

Samuel Adams, October 16, 1778, Letter to John Trumbull

Human rights can only be assured among a virtuous people. The general government . . . can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any despotic or oppressive form so long as there is any virtue in the body of the people.

George Washington

The manners of women, are in the surest criterion by which to determine whether a Republican government is practicable, in a nation or not.  The Jews, the Greeks, the Romans, the Swiss, the Dutch, all lost their public spirit, their Republican Principles and habits, and their Republican forms of Government, when they lost the modesty and domestic virtues of their women. . . . 

The foundations of national morality must be laid in private families,” Adams continued. “In vain are schools, academies, and universities instituted, if loose principles and licentious habits are impressed upon children, in their earliest years. The mothers are the earliest and most instructors of youth. . . . The vices and examples of the parents cannot be concealed from the children.  How is it possible that children can have any sense of the sacred obligation of morality or religion if, from their earliest infancy, they learn that their mothers live in habitual infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in as constant infidelity to their mothers? 

John Adams’ autobiography

It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty. Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found.  The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin. . . . Let us, by all wise and constitutional measures, promote intelligence among the People, as the best means of preserving our liberties. 

James Monroe (1758-1831), a Founding Father and fifth president of the United States of America, his first presidential inaugural speech on March 4, 1817

God’s Judgment or Self-inflicted Wound?

January 13, 2021

James F. Gauss

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is rev-18.jpg

Excerpted, in part, from Revelation 18 and the Fate of America

In an address before the Attorney General’s Conference on Law Enforcement Problems on February 15, 1950, Truman stated that, “The fundamental basis of this nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teaching we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in the right for anybody except the state” (author’s emphasis).  

When the kingdoms of Israel and Judah fell, it was not so much God’s desired judgment against them as it was the outcome of their own rebellion against God and their refusal to follow His statutes and repent of their sinfulness.  God gave the leaders and people of Israel and Judah multiple opportunities to repent and turn back to Him, but they rejected Him.

Josiah, the great grandson of Hezekiah, was the last godly king to reign in Judah.  Like King Hezekiah, he loved the Lord his God.  Despite the wickedness and disobedience of his father (Amon) and grandfather (Manasseh) before him, Josiah was determined to lead Judah back to God.  He restored the Temple and the true worship of God and “made a covenant before the Lord, to follow the Lord and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes, with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people took a stand for the covenant” (2 Kings 23:3). He ruled from 640-609 B.C. 

Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.

President Ronald Reagan, 1981-1989

However, after a succession of evil kings, including his own son, Jehoahaz, 23 years after Josiah’s death, Judah fell.  Did Judah fall because of God’s judgment against her or because of falling victim to the consequences of her own sin and falling away from God? The prophet Jeremiah when reminding Israel of their past or possibly their future spoke these words from God: “‘Have you not brought this on yourself, in that you have forsaken the Lord our God when He led you in the way? . . . Your own wickedness will correct you, and your backslidings will rebuke you.  Know therefore and see that it is an evil and bitter thing that you have forsaken the Lord your God, and the fear of Me is not in you,’ says the Lord God of hosts” (Jeremiah 2:17, 19; author’s emphasis).

Not paying attention to God’s messengers and disobeying God’s commandments or call upon a people carries grave consequences as Jeremiah and other prophets of God warned.   Jeremiah, known as the “weeping prophet” because he mourned over what he saw coming for the Jews, became a thorn in the side of the leaders and the people.  He repeatedly gave them notice of their impending judgment.  “But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart; they have revolted and departed”, he prophesied.  “They do not say in their heart, ‘Let us now fear the Lord our God, Who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season.  He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.’  Your iniquities have turned these things away, and your sins have withheld good from you” (Jeremiah 5:23-25; author’s emphasis).

The prophet Isaiah, over one hundred years before Jeremiah, prophesied against Judah’s blatant sinfulness; parading their iniquities before all to see.  “The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they do not hide it.  Woe to their soul!  For they have brought evil upon themselves” (Isaiah 3:9, author’s emphasis).  Isaiah told the people that because of their wickedness and displaying their sin openly with pride, that all their leaders would be destroyed (Isaiah 3:2-3) and that the “People will oppress each other—man against man, neighbor against neighbor.  Young people will insult their elders, and vulgar people will sneer at the honorable” (vs. 5, NLT).

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

President Ronald Reagan

America has become like the sinful kingdoms of Israel and Judah during the age of the prophets.  America not only has turned away from God—the God of its forefathers—but it flaunts its iniquities with abandon and refuses to repent and turn from its wicked ways.  Like the Jews of the days of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and other prophets of warning, America and Americans have become prideful and arrogant.  They not only ignore God, but they defiantly reject Him and His biblical law.

King David, the Psalmist, when he was reflecting on the evil that men do, wrote:

Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts.  They have no fear of God at all.  In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.  Everything they say is crooked and deceitful.  They refuse to act wisely or do good.  They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots.  Their actions are never good.  They make no attempt to turn from evil. (Psalm 36:1-4; NLT)

The United States of America is not only at that place but has been there for some time with its evil and prideful leaders leading the charge, including within the church of those who profess to know God and His statutes.

Over 230 years ago, George Washington, after leading the fledgling country in a brutal war of independence, understood that America would remain great only if it lived and governed under the auspices and guidelines of Almighty God.  In his first inaugural address on April 30, 1789, Washington penned that, “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained (author’s emphasis).

No people can be truly happy, though under the greatest enjoyments of civil liberties, if abridged of the Freedom of their Conscience as to their Religious Profession and Worship.  

William Penn, Pennsylvania Charter of Liberties, 1701.

Final thoughts.  I often reflect on Biblical and Christian history.  Did God allow the innocent among the Jews and Christians to suffer at the hands of the evil doers?  One must conclude: Yes. Are Christians today, all over the world suffering from evil? Yes.  The argument in the U.S. has always been that Christians in the U.S. and the country of America are God’s favorites and He would not allow us to suffer persecution.  Well, just look at the history of Israel, God’s “Chosen people” and we can readily see that they paid a heavy price many times for their disobedience and turning away from God. Oh, but we are Christians and redeemed by the blood of Christ and will be “raptured” before it all comes down.  Maybe, but I don’t think so. The Church in America and most Christians left God a long time ago and are only token representations of His Word and calling.  If God allows persecution to pass over Christians in America, He would have a lot of explaining to do to the millions of faithful Christians now and in world history who have succumbed to the evil and barbaric oppressors of them and their families.  Sorry, but in this case, America and American Christians are not exceptional.  We are just saved by grace and the precious blood of Jesus like all our brothers and sisters in the Lord worldwide.

Pray for America, the Church and God’s mercy.  We need a great Awakening in America; a fervent and heart-felt repentance in the Body of Christ and a true returning to God before we see revival.  And it starts with us (you and me).  We are not waiting on God to act on our behalf, He is waiting for us to act and return to Him.

America and Revelation 18

January 12, 2021

Where do we stand?

James F. Gauss

January 12, 2021

Excerpted, in part, from Revelation 18 and the Fate of America.

In the fall of 2010, as I was getting ready for bed, I felt the Spirit of the Lord urge me to read Revelation 18.  The Book of Revelation is far from my favorite and when I did read it, it was not with an inquisitive mind or spirit.  I could not remember what chapter 18 was about and I certainly did not want to read it right before going to bed, but I submitted to the Spirit’s urging.  As I read each verse, the Spirit of God seemed to say to me, “This is America.”  At first, I did not want to accept that conclusion, but as I pondered that assessment over the following days, I decided to do my homework and follow my gut feelings.  I was horrified with the results, but I resisted sharing my conclusions for three years.  By 2013, it seemed like God would not leave me alone on the issue and I finally penned and self-published the almost 400-page book, Revelation 18 and the Fate of America.

In Chapter 3 of the book, I review the 18 characteristics of “Mystery Babylon the Great” mentioned in chapters 14, 16, 17 and 18 of the Book of Revelation. 

In view of the 2020 presidential election, I feel an urgency to review those 18 characteristics and see where America stands.  In the Introduction to my book, I wrote:

            Will America survive?  That is the question that is becoming more frequent in the minds and on the tongues of Americans at home and abroad and also non-American observers worldwide.  Can the United States of America survive the unyielding assaults on its constitution, morals, economy, justice system and religious foundation—not only from without, but also from within its own borders?  Can America survive and regain its traditional strength and leadership when its own leaders are becoming more radical and anti-American?  America’s survival and re-establishment of its God-ordained greatness will depend on the response of the people of America in general and the Christian church in particular—not ten years from now; not in five years; not even one year from now, but NOW!

So, after a vicious, fraud-ridden presidential election, where does America stand in fulfilling the 18 characteristics of Mystery Babylon the Great?  I will review them one-by-one and see what you think.     

Characteristics of “Mystery, Babylon the Great”.  Some might argue that the Babylon in Revelation is mentioned as a city.  However, that does not mean that it could not be a country.  In ancient times, as well as now, a country often took on the characteristics and recognition of its major city or center of power and influence.  Thus, in the Old Testament, when Babylon is mentioned it not only includes the city of Babylon but the whole of Babylonia, the country, or the nature of the whole region controlled by Babylon.

Today, it is similar.  When we think of a country or region we automatically think of the location of the center of power and influence.  It is where decisions and laws are made that control the country and its people and determine the economic and political flow of life.  Thus, when referring to or thinking of the United States of America, more often than not, people would identify the country with its seat of power and influence, Washington, DC.

So, what about the “Babylon” mentioned in the Book of Revelation?  What distinctive attributes must it have to match the city-state or country described in Revelation?  The first mention of Babylon by name occurs in Revelation 14:8.  “And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication” (author’s emphasis).

The first characteristic of the Babylon is that she must be so powerful that she can control all nations and make them do what she wants them to do.  It is hard to imagine that a city, no matter how powerful, could control the whole world.  But a powerful, wealthy nation could.  Not only would this Babylon be so powerful, but it would have the absolute power, influence and supremacy to market its wanton sinfulness upon others.  Other Bible versions refer to her fornication as passionate immorality or adulteries or passionate idolatry.  This Babylon would have the power and influence to control the morals of the world.  Does America fit the description? √Check!

The next mention of Babylon in Revelation is in Revelation 16:19.  “Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath” (author’s emphasis).

The second characteristic of this Babylon is that its city or center of power was divided into three parts.  Some biblical scholars say that this indicates Babylon’s total destruction, but that would be incongruous with the second part of the sentence: the cities of the nations fell.  For all the cities of all the nations to fall because of Babylon, Babylon would still have to be functioning at the time of that collapse.  Instead, is it possible that the center of this Babylon’s power is governed by three parts, such as the government of the United States which is divided into the Executive, Legislative and Judicial? If so, does America fit the description? √Check!

The third characteristic of Revelation’s Babylon is that it has such strong influence over the leaders and people of the world that it can make them do whatever it desires.  Revelation 17:2 states,   “with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication” (author’s emphasis). Or, in the New Living Translation (NLT) of the Bible, “The kings of the world have committed adultery with her, and the people who belong to this world have been made drunk by the wine of her immorality.”

This future Babylon would be so powerful and controlling that all the heads of state would be in “bed with her”, that is, be in collusion with her.  Not only the world’s leaders but all those who considered themselves to be of this world would fall prey to her waywardness and the sinful intoxication of her immorality.  Does America fit the description? √Check!  We saw this play out in spades during the last two presidential elections where foreign countries and entities linked up with the Democratic Party to try and overthrow the will of the people to elect their candidate.

A fourth characteristic of this Babylon in the Book of Revelation is that it would have to be a society of great wealth, yet pervasive with immorality and those things that were an abomination to God.   “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication” [Revelation 17:4 or “full of obscenities and the impurities of her immorality” (NLT); author’s emphasis].  Does America fit the description?  √Check!

The United States has become the greatest purveyor of pornography and sexual perversion in the world.           

The fifth characteristic is that this Babylon in Revelation, like the Babylon of antiquity, is a center of great perversion and wickedness.  And, not content to wallow in her own sinfulness she pursues exporting it to the world.  She has become the mother of all that is evil and an abomination to God.

In Revelation 17:5, it proclaims that this Babylon, the Babylon of the End Times, is the mother, that is, the one who has given birth to all the harlotry and immorality in the world.  She is the “Mother of All Prostitutes and Obscenities in the World” (NLT).  Does America fit the description?  √Check!

America is not content with its own rampant sinfulness, wickedness and perversion.  Before the horrific child-murdering decision of Roe vs. Wade in 1973, abortion was considered a heinous inhuman act.  In 47 years since the legalization of this infanticide, America has murdered over 62 million of its preborn.  Worse, in exporting this abhorrent immoral mindset, there have been over 1.6 Billion babies by abortion techniques throughout the world.  Can God ever forgive us?

Revelation 17:6 presents a sixth characteristic of the futuristic Babylon:  “I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement” (author’s emphasis)Like the Babylon of old that tried to destroy the Jews, this Babylon would be intent on destroying all that represented Christianity.  It is a society ruled by those who were intent on destroying the Christian church and the followers of Jesus Christ.  Does America fit the description?  √Check!

While the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus may not be running in the streets of America just yet, the Marxist left, a contingent of Democrats, BLM, Antifa (fascists) and other anti-Christ members (including within the Church) are hell-bent (no pun intended) on silencing the true Church and followers of Jesus Christ (this will be explored in a future post).

The seventh characteristic is that this Babylon will be a dwelling place of demons. “And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!” (Revelation 18:2; author’s emphasis).

While the Babylon of old was wicked and worshipped many false gods, the Babylon of Revelation will be the residence of all forms of demons and the embodiment of every anti-God spirit.  Does America fit the description?  √Check!

In “modern” America, there is hardly a sinful rock left unturned when it comes to perversion and wickedness.  Such iniquities have invaded all of society, but especially within political and Church circles where Americans look for exemplary leadership in the flesh.

An eighth characteristic of the Babylon in John’s revelation is mentioned in Revelation 18:3. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchantsof the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury” (author’s emphasis).  Because of her great wealth and the pursuit of even more wealth, the Babylon of Revelation is not only a prime market for the world’s goods but also has made those who trade in the import and export of her material goods wealthy as well.  This Babylon and its residents can never get enough of its own and the world’s goods and resources to be satisfied.  Does America fit the description?  √Check!

The ninth characteristic of Revelation’s Babylon is that her plagues will overwhelm her.  “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4; author’s emphasis).  The Babylonian culture represented in this verse is so engrossed in its sinful behavior that it does not see the plague of repercussions heading its way as payback for its iniquities.  As it has turned away from God it has become hardened and resistant to His repeated warnings about the consequences of their rampant sin and falling away from Him.  Does America fit the description? √Check!

Throughout human history there has always been wars, natural disasters, plagues, etc. The last several years, perhaps decades, have not been any different.  However, what set 2020 apart from all other recent years, since the dust bowl years of 1931-39 that devastated America, was the unexpected and rapidly spreading coronavirus plague known as COVID-19.  It completely blindsided Americans and the whole world.  What is particularly disturbing is that it was likely developed by human hands and deliberately spread throughout the world.  For some reason, America was particularly hard hit—at least that is what the media, politicians and certain medical professionals keep telling us.

SWORN AFFIDAVIT: PERSONNEL AT US EMBASSY IN ROME ENGINEERED VOTER FRAUD 

By Pamela Geller – on January 7, 2021

Sworn Affidavit: Personnel at US Embassy in Rome Engineered Voter Fraud

This affidavit details how it was done. Given the deep, deep roots of fat-left ideologues and saboteurs in the US government, and the furious resistance President Trump received from the federal bureaucracy when he tried to implement America-First policies, there is nothing remotely implausible about this.

Listen to the additional audio testimony.

Arturo D’Elia, former head of the IT Department of Leonardo SpA, has been charged by  the public prosecutor of Naples, for technology data manipulation and implantation of viruses in the main computers of Leonardo SpA in December, 2020. D’Elia has been deposed by the presiding judge in Naples, and in sworn testimony states on for November 2020 under instruction and direction of us persons working from the US Embassy in Rome undertook the operation to switch data from the US elections of three November 2020 from significant margin of victory for Donald Trump to Joe Biden in a number of states where Joe Biden was losing the vote totals. Defendant stated he was working in Pescara facility of Leonardo, and utilized military grade cyber warfare encryption capabilities to transmit switched roads. The military satellite of Fucino tower to Frankfurt, Germany period, the defending swears that the data in some cases may have been switched to represent more than total voters registered. The defendant has stated he is willing to testify to all individuals and entities involving in the switching of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden, when he shall be in total position for himself and his family. Defendant states he has secured in an undisclosed location, the backup of the original data and data switched upon instruction to provide evidence at court in this matter.

Our Uncle is Gravely Ill

January 8, 2021

Men must be governed by God, or they will be ruled by tyrants.

William Penn (1644-1718)

On January 6, 2021, our Uncle Sam became seriously afflicted.  The rumor is he had a long, prevailing illness that was complicated and compromised by some virus known as COVID-19.  Oh, they say his obsession with politics and political correctness are really what caused him to become bedridden, but I know different.  You see, when he was born, he was birthed out of love, compassion, justice and the righteousness of God.  However, as years wore on, he abandoned his first love and indulged in prosperity, pride, humanism, evolution, perversion, death of the unborn and all manner of sinfulness that led to his agonizing condition.  Unfortunately it was a slow and painful illness.  The illness crept up very slowly at first and then hit him like a ton of bricks.  His health particularly deteriorated after the presidential election of 2008.  Multitudes are expected to weep over his infirmities, but he will likely be soon forgotten.  Unless . . .?  

A great, insightful preacher over seven decades ago clearly identified America’s present and foresaw its future without God.  His name was Peter Marshall.  In a sermon titled, Trial by Fire, he, in part, had offered this observation.

The choices you make in moral and religious questions determine the way America will go.  We badly need a prophet who will have the ear of America and who will say, “If the Lord be God, follow Him!  But if Baal, then follow him!” [1 Kings 18:21]

We must decide and decide quickly who is chief―whom we will serve.  Millions of people in America live in moral fog.  The issues are not clear to them.  They cannot face the light that makes them black or white.  They want grays and neutral picks.  They move in sort of a spiritual twilight.  Modified morality on the basis of cleverness guides millions of people.  Modified dishonesty within the letter of the law is the practice of millions more.

Surely the time has come―because the hour is late―when we must decide.  The choice before us is plain: Jehovah or Baal?  Christ or chaos?  Conviction or compromise?  Discipline or disintegration?

I have not stated the matter too strongly.  You may agree mildly or you may disagree violently, but the time has come to face the duties and obligations of our citizenship and willing to assume the disciplines imposed by the things we believe in before we are forced to accept the disciplines of tyranny.

I, for one am rather tired about hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens.  The time has come and now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship.  It’s just as plain and clear as that.

The average church member has forgotten and forsaken the old disciplines.  He attends services when it is convenient.  His contribution of time and money is seldom such as to involve sacrifice on his part.  The church, the Word, the sacraments have no compulsion over his life apparently.  Of course, to be honest about it, the fault is not alone that of the church member.  The ministry, the church officers, are also involved in blame, because the church has failed to challenge the faith and vision of the lay people in the pews.  The programs of too many churches call for neither effort nor sacrifice―all of that is sadly true.

The remedy for this sad state of affairs will lie, I believe, in the seeking God’s will for the individual church, and the adopting of a daring program to which He is challenging us all.  Our strength is limited only by our faith in asking God’s help.

. . . America’s future depends on her accepting and demonstrating God’s government.  If America listens to God; if America obeys God, then she can be great among the nations.  Here, in America, we have the people, we have the means of communication, we have the genius and the skill, we have the political forums, the wealth, the natural resources, the prestige, and the ability to lead the whole world into a new and bright tomorrow in which dreams and hopes of the human heart may be achieved and the desires and the prayers of the nations all realized in a world where there can be life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness available to all men, regardless of their race or their color, because that is precisely what God wishes for all His creatures (Rev. Dr. Peter Marshall, March 11, 1944 sermon, Trial by Fire).

Although this was preached almost 77 years ago, it sounds like it was given yesterday.  Was Rev. Marshall a prophet?  Perhaps, but he never claimed to be one.  The truth is, that America then was all that he warned about and much more.  So, what has changed in America over the 77 years since his sermon and his untimely death on January 25, 1949 at age 45? Has America and the Church heeded his warning?  Simply, and emphatically, No!

Over the last nearly eight decades, America has continued to spiral down the slippery slope of decadence and hedonism while the Church has been mostly silent and ineffective. Less than two years after Marshall’s sermon, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a narrow split decision, erroneously and unconstitutionally, declared the “doctrine” of the separation of Church and State to be the law of the land on February 10, 1947.  Thomas Jefferson would have been aghast and vehemently opposed.  Where was the voice of the Church, who obviously had a big stake in this decision?  Silent!  This set the pattern for the ineffective Church, for which Christ shed His precious blood, for the next 70-plus years, until now.  Did the Church repent and wake-up from its lethargy? Unfortunately, no, it got worse.

In 1962 and 1963, Supreme Court decisions ripped prayer and Bible readings out of public schools without public input and without a word of protest from the Church.  In 1973, the horrendous Roe vs. Wade decision was foisted on America, making the murder of innocent unborn babies the law of the land.  America’s pagan future began to spiral out of control.  Where was the Church?  Mostly silent. The Church has remained mostly silent as immorality and perversion of all kinds have eaten at the soul of America the last few decades, even as it has been embraced within many so-called “Christian” circles.

America’s Founders, certainly not perfect men and women, would be horrified at what their beloved country has become.  America’s Founders made a covenant with God the moment they set foot upon the “New World.”

The United States of America’s first president, George Washington, clearly understood the role God must play in the future of America.  Washington ended his first inaugural address on April 30, 1789, with this final thought: “. . . I shall take my present leave; but not without resorting once more to the benign Parent of the Human Race in humble supplication that, since He has been pleased to favor the American people with opportunities for deliberating in perfect tranquility, and dispositions for deciding with unparalleled unanimity on a form of government for the security of their union and the advancement of their happiness, so His divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views, the temperate consultations, and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend.” 

Washington, who had experienced miracle after miracle on the revolutionary battlefield, understood that the nation’s continued success would depend on its willingness to persistently consult God for wisdom and direction and to acknowledge His role in the birth of nation and the lives of its citizens.

The word of God,Washington believed, would be the new nation’s benchmark to keep it on the right track.  John Adams also believed that it was the “general Principles of Christianity” that were essential to the ongoing freedom and security of America.   

The general principles, on which the Fathers achieved independence, were the only Principles in which that beautiful Assembly of young Gentlemen could Unite, and these Principles only could be intended by them in their address, or by me in my answer. And what were these general Principles? I answer, the general Principles of Christianity, in which all these Sects were United: And the general Principles of English and American Liberty, in which all those young Men United, and which had United all Parties in America, in Majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her Independence.

Now I will avow, that I then believe, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System (John Adams, June 28, 1813, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson; author’s emphasis).

America was uniquely established on Godly, Biblical principles like no other nation before or since.  The foundation was set by men and women who sacrificed all they had, including their fortunes, reputations and lives to give birth to this new land of the free.  Was it perfect?  No, but the Constitution, unlike any other in world history, provided the mechanism and blueprint to adjust and hone it as opportunity arose.

This election cycle, we have seen the ugly side of a country that has lost its Biblical moorings.  Its foundation is no longer steeped in the sacrificed blood of the One who made America possible and blessed it beyond all human imagination. Instead of “evolving” and progressing into the fullness of God’s blessing, America has been devolving into a rudderless ship of state that no longer has a firm foundation and is careening ever so rapidly toward disaster.

And, where is the Church? Mostly silent, except for a remnant of faithful, God-fearing patriots who are on their knees interceding before Almighty God.

Where America might be headed? Read, Revelation 18 and the Fate of America.

(A personal note: We are all guilty and complicit in America’s demise, myself included.  I was silent when I should have screaming from the rooftop.  I knowingly or unknowingly supported companies and sources that seek America’s decline and submission—it has become almost impossible to buy everyday items not made in China or some other totalitarian country.  We are all to blame and need to repent and change our ways. It will not be easy, but it must happen.  For one, I must develop a site that re-directs people seeking my books away from Amazon.  That may cost me, but hopefully cost Amazon more as other Christian authors follow suit.  The problem is, that once a book is listed on Amazon, they will not let you delist it.  However, sales can be redirected.  I’m working on it.  God bless everyone.  Be bold and courageous in the Power of His Might!)

Where is the Church?

James F. Gauss

July 29, 2020

(Excerpted, in part, from Embracing the Anti-Christ: The Heresy of Interfaith Dialogue, by James F. Gauss, published July 14, 2020).

EmbracingTheAnti-Christ.final

True believers in Jesus Christ and His unadulterated Gospel have been struggling to push back the powers of darkness since the first Christian believers gathered in the Upper Room in Jerusalem after Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. For the most part, up through World War II, the Church in America was at the forefront of doing battle against evil. However, after the war-weary victories in Europe and the Far East in the mid-1940s it seemed that the Church fell back on its “laurels” and got fat and lazy and let down its guard and offensive thrust against those who sought to undermine its very foundations.

Over the last several decades—and likely much longer—America has become a culture of death and decadence. Why has America—once the center of Judeo-Christian principles and experience—degenerated into a wanton, hedonistic society? The reasons, from this author’s perspective are many, but a few glaring ones will be listed.

Separation of Church and State. Americans readily accepted this lie in 1947 and the Church was silent. Barring the Church from the public and political arena of everyday life gave way to debauchery and godless living. This fabricated “separation” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution and was not part of the thinking of any of the Founding Fathers. . . .

Prayer and Bible were taken out of education in 1962-63. Many of America’s Founding Fathers took a strong position on the Bible and prayer. Dr. Benjamin Rush, a prominent physician, educator and signer of the Declaration of Independence said: “Religion is necessary to correct the effects of learning. Without religion I believe learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind. . .” (letter to John Armstrong, March 19, 1783). By removing prayer and the Bible from our schools, the moral fiber and foundation for youthful guidance was obliterated. Once again, the Church stood silent.

Rejecting God and the Gospel of Christ. Jesus said, “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me” (Luke 10:16). Over the decades, as the Church got weaker and weaker and became more irrelevant in the lives of Americans . . .

Roe vs. Wade, abortion and the culture of death. Every time there is a mass shooting or some horrific event in the United States involving guns, some (usually Democrat or leftist) politician or liberal broadcaster on television will boldly proclaim that America has become a “culture of death.”

I agree, but not for the same brash pontificating reasons they promulgate.   America, indeed, has become a culture of death, but it started long before the first mass shooting at a school.  Conspicuously, absent from the culture of death dialogue on the left is the fact that the killing of the innocent has become the law of the land. . . .

Sexual perversion among youth and adults. The esteemed George Washington, in his presidential Farewell Address, September 17, 1796, wrote: “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. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them.” Gouverneur Morris, one of the signers of the U.S. Constitution, wrote: “Religion is the only solid basis of good morals: therefore education should teach the precepts of religion, and the duties of man towards God.” . . .

Educational dumb down—rewriting true American history. All the despotic leaders of the past—Hitler, Mussolini, Marx, and others—and those of the present, know that to control the minds of a nation’s youth results in controlling the future. If one controls the narrative, one can dictate the destiny of a people. The great Winston Churchill is credited with saying, “A nation that forgets its past has no future.” . . .

Destruction of the family unit. In the post-World War II era and before, the man/husband was the consummate breadwinner and the woman/wife stayed home as the family “nest builder” and nurturer. Such a concept is alien to today’s families. . . .

The perverted church. In far too many churches, sin has crept in, ever so deceptively at first, but now as a flood, as more and more churches bow at the altar of perversion and a false gospel of the LGBTQ+ (the ever expanding acronym) adherents. A co-habitating man and woman is also acceptable in many churches.

Where was the Church during all this upheaval and despotic overreach? Where is it today? With the introduction of the COVID pandemic, where did the Church stand? An overwhelming majority abandoned their faith in Jesus Christ and cast their lot with the state and adopted the mostly false narrative of politicians and medical spokespersons in apparent fear and trepidation. Instead of calling its members to prayer and fasting, as well as repenting for the sins of the Church and the country, the Church went AWOL. In the midst of it all, many churches have made an unholy alliance with Islam.

Repentance in the Church. Who is responsible for the ever-growing decadence of America and Americans? It is the Church—the Church of Jesus Christ—that was to set the standard; to uphold it and defend it at all costs, and it has failed miserably.

For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17). Judgment starts with the Church. Oh, Christians can easily point the finger of responsibility in all different directions, but God will hold His Church responsible for the many lost souls who have fallen prey to the wicked one. Instead of being a light in darkness or a light on a hill, far too many churches and denominations have embraced the darkness and called it “good.”

A favorite scripture Christian leaders like to quote, is 2 Chronicles 7:14. “. . . if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” The emphasis is usually placed on the praying part of the verse and the repentance part—turn from their wicked ways—is glossed over. The Church in America, that is, the Christians in America, have a lot to repent for—remember the preceding list, which is just the beginning. . . .

American Suicide

I last posted this over 10 years ago.  It’s time for a refresher.

It’s hard to know where it all began,

The demoralization of this land.

Was it the statesmen elected to serve?

Or was it the preachers who lost their nerve?

Was it the people who were so blindly led?

Or was it the educators in what they said?

Was it the judiciary so liberalized?

Or was it justice that closed its eyes?

Whomever the source, whatever their reason,

For American survival it’s open season.

It’s hard to know when it all began,

Was it when prayer left our land?

Was it when we got tired of one more kid,

And murdered the innocent like Hitler did?

Or was it when the church winked at sin,

And invited the unrepentant sinner in?

Was it when the judges struck God from the land?

Or was it when Congress gave them the upper hand?

Was it when educators taught our kids wrong is right?

Or was it when parents let their children out of sight?

It’s hard to know at whom the finger is pointed,

With the land so fractured and disjointed.

Is it the Congressman who gives our money away?

Or the greedy businessman that sends our jobs to Taipei?

Is it the teacher who gets our youth way off base?

Or the preacher who becomes a moral disgrace?

Is it the judge who lets a criminal slip on by?

Or the banker who charges interest too high?

Is it the American who buys nothing but Chinese,

Then wonders why his job goes blowing in the breeze?

Whenever it was; whoever is to blame,

The end result will still be the same.

A country with no morals, no firm place to stand,

Its face turned from God, will no longer be grand.

America for sure is headed on a suicidal bent,

It has forgotten what civility and justice meant.

There’s no way off a slope this slippery,

Unless, of course, we come to agree,

Our only way out is repentance, you see.

A genuine reversal to set us free,

To be the country God meant us to be.

Reason #3 to NEVER Vote for a Democrat: Racism

July 20, 2020

I will be posting an almost limitless number of reasons for you to share with others right up to the November election. So, be sure to sign up to follow my blog.  This post is long, but you will want to share it with every Democrat you know.

The Party of Slavery, White Supremacy, Segregation, Suppression & Racism. At an August, 2019 campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, in an attempt at a roaring finish to his speech, Joe Biden wrapped it up with this phrase, “We choose truth over facts” (1). Well, facts are stubborn critters, as is the truth. So, let’s look at the facts as a window into the truth about the Democrats and racism. Black lives DO NOT matter to most Democrat politicians (except to get their vote).

Democrats-in kinte cloths

In a recent attempt to try and show that they are really concerned about Black lives, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and other Democrats in Congress donned the African kinte cloth scarf in a supposed show of solidarity with Blacks on June 8 after the death of George Floyd. In a twist of irony and an illustration of the Democrats’ lack of knowledge of African-American history, it was discovered that the kinte cloth was historically worn by the Asante (or Ashante) people of Ghana who were engaged in the slave trade in the late 1600s and early 1700s (2).

The Democratic Party has always been the political party of slavery, white supremacy, segregation, suppression and racism toward America’s Black citizens. That is the hard truth that Democrat voters are either ignorant of, or refuse to accept. That America’s Black population started voting for democrats en masse was a result of the schemes of the Democratic Party headed by Lyndon Johnson in the mid-1960s (more on that later).

Formation of the Democratic Party. America’s first president, George Washington, strongly opposed and warned against a two party political system in the United States. “Washington detested the fractious and partisan two party political system that he saw developing under his administration. He saw it as destructive and unhealthy for the country. The party system of government, he foresaw, had the potential to go beyond the normal political checks and balances and rip the power of self-government out of the hands of the citizens” (3). In his written farewell address of September 17, 1796, Washington expressed his opinions about an emerging two-party system.

There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in governments of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.

In the 1790s, the Democratic-Republican Party was founded by staunch anti-federalists, Thomas Jefferson (author of the Declaration of Independence) and James Madison (Father of the U.S. Constitution). The anti-federalists were against big government controlling the citizens. Before the end of the century, political factions split the Democratic-Republican Party into what became the Jeffersonian Republicans and the (Alexander) Hamilton Federalists. However, by 1816, the Federalist Party disappeared, leaving only the Democratic-Republican Party. That changed in the 1820s with the rising popularity of the strong Federalist, Andrew Jackson. By the mid-1820s, the Democratic-Federalist Party split into two factions, the National Republicans (or Anti-Jacksonians) and the Democrats. With the election of Jackson as President in 1828, the Democrats solidified their position and Jackson became the first Democratic president in January, 1829 and formerly established the Democratic Party (4, 5).

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress… Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.

James Madison

Speech before Congress

February 7, 1792

In keeping with Federalist ideals, Democrats have always stood for greater government intervention in the lives of the American people. The Republicans have stood for more limited government. Since the 1890s, the Democrats have become more socially liberal, while the Republicans are more conservative on those issues. Throughout the 1800s and well into the latter part of the 1900s, the Democrats firmly supported slavery and opposed every effort and federal legislation to free Black citizens from oppression and bondage. In 1854, Democrat Stephen Douglas, who would become the presidential opposition to Lincoln in 1860, sponsored legislation known as the Kansas-Nebraska Act that permitted settlers in the Western Territories to decide on the issue of slavery. This enraged northern abolitionists and resulted in the establishment of the Republican Party on March 24, 1854 in Ripon, WI. Abraham Lincoln became the first Republican President in 1861.

Lincoln despised slavery, and looked upon it as immoral and unchristian. “If the negro [sic] is a man, why then my ancient faith teaches me that ‘all men are created equal;’ and that there can be no moral right in connection with one man’s making a slave of another,” he reasoned in his powerful Peoria, Illinois speech on October 16, 1854 (6). Lincoln established the Republican Party as the abolitionist, anti-slave party, while the Democrats resolutely held on to the pro-slavery mindset.

Contrast Lincoln’s position on slavery with his Democratic presidential opponent of 1860, Stephen Douglas, who opened the first of seven Lincoln-Douglas debates in Ottawa, IL on August 21, 1858 with this proclamation: “I do not regard the Negro as my equal, and positively deny that he is my brother or any kin to me whatever” (7).

Lincoln won the presidential vote and took office in early 1861.* In the midst of the bloody Civil War, largely over the issue of slavery, Lincoln made his declaration on slavery on January 1, 1863. The following is an excerpt of what became known as Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom (8).

At its inception, the primary goal of the Republican Party was to block the spread of slavery into the Western territories and the eventual abolition of slavery throughout the nation. That goal was dealt a serious blow with the Dred Scott v. Sanford Supreme Court decision of March, 1857, which ruled that slaves were not “citizens” but “property” and, therefore, could be denied the rights of citizens (9). Seven Democratic justices voted for this horrendous ruling; two Republican justices voted against it.

Three months before the Confederate General, Robert E. Lee, surrendered his troops to Union forces on April 9, 1865, a Republican-led Congress passed the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery on January 31, 1865. One hundred percent of the Republicans supported the amendment, but only 23 percent of Democrats did (10).

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Amendment XIII

Fourteen months after the end of the Civil War, Congress passed the 14th Amendment on June 13, 1866. Section 1 of the five section amendment proclaimed:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the States wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

No Democrats supported the amendment, while 94 percent of Republicans voted for it. On February 26, 1869, Congress passed the 15th Amendment guaranteeing all citizens of the United States the right to vote.

Again, not one Democrat voted for the amendment, but all Republicans did. Decidedly, the Democratic Party had firmly established itself as the anti-freedom, anti-Negro party, and continues as such to this day.

Facts are Stubborn Revealers of Inconvenient Truth. If you are a Democrat (or an anti-Trumper), I challenge you, if you have the intestinal fortitude for the truth, to watch the 5 ½ minute video, The Inconvenient Truth about the Democratic Party, by the Prager Institute and narrated by Carol Swain, Professor of Political Science & Law, Vanderbilt University (11). It just might knock your socks off. But, just in case you are not brave enough, I will summarize the key points for you, and then some.

At the beginning of the Prager video, Professor Swain minces no words. “Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative and has a long history of discrimination.”

According to Professor Swain, the Democrats of history defended slavery, started the Civil War to defend it, opposed Reconstruction which enforced the civil rights of freed slaves, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation throughout the South (even up into the 1970s), perpetrated the lynching of Black people and the murder of White civil rights protestors, and fought against the multiple civil rights acts of the mid-twentieth century.

Only six days after the end of the Civil War, John Wilkes Booth (a Democrat) assassinated President Lincoln. Andrew Johnson, Lincoln’s vice president and a Southern Democrat took over as President of the United States (1865-1869). He quickly opposed Lincoln’s plan to reintegrate the freed slaves into Southern society. Johnson vehemently led the Democratic opposition to the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments.

Immediately after passage of the 13th Amendment, former slave states and their cities started passing “Jim Crow” laws that effectively segregated the freed slaves from White society. Many of these laws were still in effect de facto well into the 1960s. When this author naively went to college in South Carolina in the early 1960s, the Black population was still heavily discriminated against. Blacks could only have menial jobs at $0.50 per hour (Min. wage was $1.00); they were forbidden from eating at the same restaurants as Whites or use the same rest room or drinking fountain; they could not attend movie showings with Whites or attend their schools or colleges. Even in the early 1970s, when the author was involved in a Christian ministry in Georgia, Blacks were still being denied equal access to primary education and housing—all because of Democrat-controlled school boards and administrators, and Democratic politics.

During Reconstruction (1865-1877) when federal troops were stationed in the South to secure the rights of freed slaves, hundreds of Blacks were elected to Southern legislatures as Republicans. By 1900, 22 Black men had served or were serving in the U.S. Congress as Republicans. It would not be until 1935 when a Black man was elected as a Democrat to serve in the U.S. Congress.

However, immediately after the end of Reconstruction, Southern Democrats assumed power once again and started instituting the “Black Codes” (aka, Jim Crow laws) to reestablish their White supremacy throughout the South. These “codes” prevented Blacks from owning property or running businesses, instituted “poll taxes” and “literacy tests” to suppress the Black vote. It was all enforced by terror, lynching and murder and mostly carried out by members of the Ku Klux Klan, founded on December 24, 1865 (12). Led by former Confederate Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forest (a Democrat) as the first Grand Wizard, the KKK carried on a reign of terror against Blacks and their White sympathizers and supporters. Elements of the KKK still exist today.

In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party (Eric Foner, Prof. of History, Columbia University).

During the Woodrow Wilson presidency (Democrat, 1912-1921), Wilson shared many of the views of the KKK and re-segregated many of the federal agencies.

During the 1920s, “Republicans repeatedly introduced bills in the House to make lynching a federal crime, but they were defeated by the Southern block. In 1920 the Republicans made an anti-lynching bill part of their platform and achieved passage in the House by a wide margin. Southern Democrats in the Senate repeatedly filibustered the bill to prevent a vote, and defeated it in the 1922, 1923 and 1924 sessions as they held the rest of the legislative program hostage” (13). Imagine, Democrats opposed the horrific act of lynching of another human being without any due process.

Democrats have vehemently fought against every civil rights act introduced in Congress. In the 1960 Civil Rights Act, expanding the protections of Black voting rights, the Democrats filibustered in an attempt to defeat the bill. In the end, it passed with 89 percent of Republicans and 52 percent of Democrats in the House supporting it. In the Senate, it passed 71-18 with all Republicans voting for it and the 18 no votes were all Democrat (14).

In 1964, it was the Republicans in the Senate that introduced and passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, despite the blockage attempt of the Senate Democrats (15). When the Republicans fought for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, 94 percent of the House Republicans supported it, but 27 percent of Democrats still opposed it (16).

All Black Lives Matter. Despite the clear history of the Democratic Party and its anti-Black and anti-Civil Rights stance, the vast majority of America’s Black population still supports the Democratic Party. Why? Enter Democrat Lyndon Johnson, the successor to the assassinated John F. Kennedy in the fall of 1963. Johnson, a southern Democrat from Texas, did not hold Blacks in high esteem. In a biography written by Doris Kearn Goodwin, Johnson is quoted saying:

These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference (17).

Under Johnson and the Democrats since, the party of welfare has destroyed the Black family and destroyed personal responsibility and the incentive to succeed and be a contributing member of society. Blacks that break out of the Democratic-imposed image are deemed “Uncle Toms”, uppity or looking down on their “kind.”

In 1916, the organization that Democrats strongly support at all costs, Planned Parenthood, was founded by Margaret Sanger, an Irish nurse. Sanger was a racist through and through and saw birth control as a means of controlling the Black population. In a letter to a supporter in 1939, Sanger wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population” (18). I expect every Democrat will scream “foul” and deny this, but the outcome over the decades cannot be denied.

According to statistics accumulated by The Radiance Foundation, abortion is the leading killer of Black lives, not the police, not drugs, not gang wars, not disease, but ABORTION (19). According to Radiance, 259,366 [sic; 259,336] black Americans are killed by abortion each year. This death toll is greater than every other leading cause of death for black Americans combined.

Abortion No. 1 killer of Blacks

In June, 2020, LifeNews reported, Abortion-induced deaths of the unborn in the black community are 69 times higher than HIV deaths, 31 times higher than (all other) homicides, 3.6 times higher than cancer-related deaths, and 3.5 times higher than deaths caused by heart disease (20).

According to the latest CDC abortion statistics, there were 638,169 abortions in the U.S. in 2019 (21). Based on that figure and the Radiance figure, that would mean that over 40 percent of abortions performed are on Black women who represent only an estimated 6.6 percent of the U.S. population. Quite a disparity. Clearly, Black lives do not really matter to Democrats and the majority of their supporters.

Yet, the majority of Blacks still vote for Democrats. Why? First, Democrats relentlessly accuse Republicans of everything of which they are guilty. They adhere to the proven strategy that, if you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it (because they will not take the time to seek the truth themselves). Second, while it has been the failed policies of the Democrats that have kept Blacks down and in bondage, it has, at the same time flooded them with all kinds of social welfare to keep them on the Democratic plantation and gravy train. Massive (as in trillions of dollars) of Democratic social welfare has done nothing but decimate the Black community for six decades. Democrats have denied Blacks school choice, thus confining them to failed public schools in Democratic-run cities throughout the country. In addition, politically correct policing of Black communities has left law-abiding Blacks defenseless against Black-on-Black crime.

No, Democrats do not care about Blacks, they just pander to the Black community every election cycle. Disgraceful! Hateful! Racist!

*Want to know why Democrats want to abolish the Electoral College vote? In the election of November 6, 1860 where Abraham Lincoln defeated his racist, pro-slavery opponent, Democrat Stephen Douglas, Lincoln received less than 40 percent of the popular vote (due to four candidates), but won the election in a “landslide” of 180 electoral votes due to the much higher population in the Northern states that favored the abolition of slavery. Imagine what the future might have held if the popular vote won that election. The same was true in 2016 and could be in 2020.

NOTE: This one reason alone could easily be a book on why not to vote for a Democrat.

Next: Reason #4. Polluting Young Minds

Reason #2 to NEVER Vote for a Democrat: Lying

July 16, 2020

James F. Gauss, Ph.D.

Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

Mark Twain and others have been credited with saying, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Democrats in the U.S. Congress (add your usual suspects) are as irritating as a thousand ticks under one’s skin with repeated violations of all three types of lies.

When you were a child and you thought a playmate was not telling the truth, you would likely exclaim, “Liar, liar, pants of fire.” Now, with Democrats, it is, “Liar, liar, our country is on fire.” Today, politicians, in general, have a less favorable image of honesty than a used car salesman (no offense intended to these hard working people).

As soon as Donald J. Trump was elected, but not in office, Democrats hatched the first of their nefarious and bogus claim of “Russian Collusion,” which dragged the country through their muck and slime. It turns out, that it was their own that colluded and schemed with the Russians all along. But they knew that. They just wanted the public to believe otherwise. The list of Democrat attacks on trump, his family, his administration (and I’m sure, his dog, if he had one), is endless. As soon as one fails, they throw-up another one. Right after the mid-term elections in November, 2018, the Democrats, frustrated that they could not pin any of their lies on President Trump, came out with a list of 85 Trump or Trump associate scandals that they were certain would derail the Trump presidency (1). However, all their attacks, fabrications and lies have failed. Even their “impeachment” of the President was a sham, self-inflicted disgrace and pox on their house.

In a behind the doors interview in February, 2018, former President Obama had the audacity (not of hope) to spittoon for leftist press, “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us” (2). Perhaps the reason the President was never embarrassed was because the media and justice system were in bed with him and his administration and always looked the other way or were complicit in his many misdeeds (but that’s another long story).

The examples of Democratic malfeasance, criminal schemes and deceiving of the public with “lies, damned lies and statistics,” are endless, but I will just use the latest Democratic feigned outrage over President Trump commuting Roger Stone’s prison sentence. One can argue all day over his guilt or not, but that is not the issue here.

First, the Democrats’ response.

“Anyone who cares about the rule of law in this country is nauseated by the fact that the president has commuted the sentence of someone who willfully lied to Congress, covered up for the president, intimidated witnesses, obstructed the investigation. . . . It shouldn’t matter whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, this should be offensive to you if you care about the rule of law and you care about justice.”—Adam Schiff

“It’s staggering corruption . . . . People should know this isn’t just about lying to Congress, that means lying to the American people, and witness tampering and the rest. . . . It’s about our national security.”—Nancy Pelosi

“We shouldn’t be surprised that he thinks he is above the law. We deserve better as a country,”—Joe Biden

“By refusing to hold President Trump accountable, the Republican Party bears responsibility for his lawlessness,”—Chuck Schumer

Oh, what a wicked web we weave, when we practice to deceive. Remember Biden’s infamous quote about Democrats? “We choose truth over facts.”

Yes, “facts,” they can be pesky little buggers. They tend to prove what is true. Truth = “that which is true in accordance with fact or reality.” Or, “a fact or belief that is accepted as true.” Dang! Well, we already know that Biden and the Democrats tend not to deal in the realm of reality—only theirs, not the common folk.

So, how about a quick summary of what these “leading” Democrats believe:

Pelosi believes “lying to Congress” and the “America people” is just criminal and about “national security.”

Biden believes that President Trump thinks he “is above the law.”

Schumer says that the “Republican Party bears responsibility for [Trump’s] lawlessness.”

Ah, and Schiff says, “It shouldn’t matter whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, this should be offensive to you if you care about the rule of law and you care about justice.”

Classic Democrat duplicity and double-speak. If it is about Republicans, it’s always criminal, outrageous, lying and a threat to National Security.

Now, for some inconvenient truths about presidential pardons and commutations (3).

Pew on Pardons

The Roger Stone commutation (NOT pardon), was only President Trump’s eleventh (No. 11) in almost four years of his presidency. According to various sites, the number of Trump’s pardons are reported to be between 15 and 24, so far. President Obama, on the other hand, granted 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations of sentence (the most in presidential history) and the most clemencies since President Harry Truman. The vast majority of Obama’s pardons were for drug dealers or other illegal drug offenses (4). But, then there was Obama’s infamous commutation of the 35-year sentence of trans-sexual Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning, convicted of stealing thousands of pages of classified military documents (5). However, let us not forget that Obama also released 182 GITMO detainees suspected of Islamic terrorism, of which an estimated 121 have already returned to the Islamic battlefield of holy terror (6).

Obama's clemencies

Where were the Democratic cries of lying, deception, lawlessness and threats to national security during the Obama years? Not a peep. Shameful, disgusting, unforgiveable.

And, yes, it seems that most politicians lie or “shade the truth” when it suits their agenda.
