Biden: What to Expect

January 19, 2021

January 18, 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.

Biden or Trump?

July 28, 2020

James F. Gauss

July 28, 2020

A reader (I’ll call him, “George”) responded to my blog post on Reason #3 to NEVER Vote for a Democrat: Racism, and wrote: I’ve never voted for a party platform, preferring to vote for the person, their views, their character, their moral backbone, their examples of being truthful over political correctness. He went on to state that the choice between Clinton and Trump in 2016 was a difficult one because neither candidate met his character criteria. In the end, he voted for trump because of his stance (platform) “on Israel, abortion and nominating conservative judges to the courts.” Despite President Trump’s fulfillment of this reader’s hopes and much more, he now says he cannot and will not vote for Trump because of his “narcissism, self-absorption, moral deficiency, lying, Tweet fest name calling, and mental ineptitude. . . . His handling of this current pandemic is abhorrent, let alone the racial injustices and demonstrations.”

So, what is George’s choice in the upcoming election? He acknowledges that Joe Biden “is too old and I don’t like many of the things he supports. Yet, Biden is definitely better than Trump’s . . . .” So, with George’s perception of Trump’s character flaws, he would rather vote for Biden’s platform that he does not like. Strange thinking, but unfortunately, not unlike so many voters who cannot get beyond judging Trump solely on his character.

I intended to respond with a clarifying comment of my own, but realized that my response would be too long and better expressed more completely in another blog for a wider audience.

Character vs. Platform. I can certainly understand George’s concerns about President Trump’s character flaws. I had similar reservations right up until two weeks before the 2016 presidential election. I still believe, that in a personal context, President Trump may not be the type of person that would be on my BFF list (few people are—I’m very picky). But, then I reflect on the people of the Bible that God chose to be leaders for His cause, and, other than Jesus, they all had character flaws—some extremely severe, but God used them anyway. Does Donald J. Trump have character flaws and a bag of sins? Absolutely! But don’t we all, unless we confess our sins to God, repent and seek His forgiveness. However, being human, there is not one of us that is truly sin-free. We must constantly keep coming before the Lord in confession that leads unto repentance and forgiveness.

In American history, there are a scant few people who exhibited both godly character and true leadership. At the presidential level, the last person that I voted for that had a reasonable semblance of both, was Ronald Reagan. So, although this blog commentator judges Trump on the content of his character, but not Biden (even though he does not agree with Biden’s political agenda and principles), he chooses to reject Trump. In an imperfect world, I decided, when it comes to politics, I must choose platform over character. For me, although I have not voted Democrat for almost 40 years, the Democratic Party abandoned godly principles a long time ago. Even the Democratic faithful are waking up to that reality and the discerning among them understand that the Democratic Party and its leaders are delusional and morally bankrupt. On May 26, 2018, for instance, Brandon Straka, a Democratic voter became incensed with the Democrats deplorable platform and founded the WalkAway Campaign, which encourages the disillusioned Democratic voter to “walk away” from the Party and join the Republican effort. To date, over 338,000 former Democratic voters have done just that. In the last full week of July, 2020, Straka reported on Fox News that over 86,000 joined the campaign.

However, while George focuses on character to make his political decision, he is errant on a number of Trump’s principal goals that mimics the liberal media’s obsession with destroying Trump’s accomplishments and agenda since he announced his presidential run. (As an aside, the fact that the media is so obsessed with destroying Trump and refuses to give him any credit for anything, should be a signal to any rational person, that it is not Trump’s character that the political left and the Democrats are concerned about, but it is his Democratic-dismantling of their wayward and anti-American platform of Marxist-socialism). With daily 24/7 attacks from every conceivable source—hundreds a day—how would you respond? Especially if they were attacking your family and friends and endangering their lives with false and salacious accusations. But, he should stay off Twitter, you say. When absolutely every media outlet—newspaper, radio, TV, Internet (Facebook, Google, et al), except a handful of conservative ones, attack him every minute of every day, what outlet of defense does Trump have to defend himself? What would you do? Remain silent and passive?

Here’s the deal on Trump’s character from my perspective and experience. He’s a fighter; a politically incorrect brawler. He’s not a namby-pamby politician. Unlike most Democrats in Congress, he’s a patriot and loves America. He’ll do anything to defend it and the American people. I grew up in New Jersey and as a teenager and young adult I ventured into New York City many times, mostly to the ballparks (NYC was still home to the Dodgers, Giants and Yankees). Even back in the 1950s and 1960s, New Yorkers had the reputation of being tactless, blunt, in-your-face, crude and always telling you exactly what they thought about anything, including you. Trump is, of course, a New Yorker. I am not saying that excuses his perceived character flaws, it just might explain them. Years ago, we moved to what we thought was the peaceful, conservative Midwest state of Minnesota. Minnesotans pride themselves on “Minnesota Nice.” It drives Easterners crazy. It seems one never knows exactly what a born and raised Minnesotan really thinks or means. In retrospect, I will take the bluntness and straight-talking truth of a New Yorker over the less than genuine “Minnesota Nice” persona that is far too often fake.

So, what about character vs. platform? Is it Trump or is it Biden? I’m going to go right to the heart of one of the issues that apparently sticks in the craw of George and other anti-Trumpers: the accusation that Trump is a racist or is responsible for “racial injustices.” Perhaps, too much liberal news, or failure to do diligent research? Either way, I already thoroughly dealt with the racist history of the Democratic Party and its leaders in Reason #3, and its continuance today. But let me address the accusation of Trump’s “racism.”

Is Trump a Racist? In a retort to a Black radio talk show host, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Now, that IS racist! The truth about Biden? He bends a knee to the violent, Marxist Black Lives Matter organization that is bent on destroying America, but ignores the millions of Black babies aborted; the Black slums that Democratic mayors run into the ground; the need for school choice vouchers for Black students so they can get out of the hellhole inner city schools that Democrats are destroying, etc. Biden and Obama had eight years to improve the lot of Blacks in America and did nothing but dole out goody bags. Now, that IS racist!

In his first year as President, Trump created the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council, headed up by Executive Director Scott Turner (I hate saying this, but it’s necessary for all things racist in a Democrat’s mind, but Scott is Black, Negro, African-American. Otherwise, to normal Americans, he is  just one qualified guy who knows what he is doing and cares about those in economic stress). Under Turner’s direction, the WHORC has established 8,764 “opportunity zones” nominated by governors of all 50 states. Now that’s NOT racist!

These “zones” represent the lives of 35 million Americans (mostly minorities of color) living in poverty, low income and subjected to higher crime. Turner stated that the Council was charged with answering the question: “What can be done to lift up our most vulnerable and stressed communities . . . to create new jobs, new businesses, better housing, retail . . .” Now that’s NOT racist!

If you have not heard about this unique Trump initiative, it would be no surprise. Don’t expect the Trump-hating media to tell you about it, or any of the other outstanding Trump accomplishments. However, the infamous Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, have heard about it. They want to defund it. Now, that IS racist!

In less than three years, President Trump has, through economic reforms, greatly improved the living conditions and opportunities for Blacks and Hispanics, resulting in the lowest unemployment rate for both demographics since employment statistics have been kept. Now that’s NOT racist!

In December, 2019, Trump promoted and signed a Historic Black College & University bill providing $250 million per year in support of those institutions. Now, that’s NOT racism! Under the leadership of President Trump and the Direction of Ben Carson, Secretary of HUD, the Trump administration dealt with and resolved a back log of over 22 thousand fair housing complaints left unaddressed by the Obama administration. Now, that’s NOT racism!

The cries and accusations of racism against President Trump by the Democrats, liberal media and their ilk are proven false, but few anti-Trumpers will take the time and energy to research the facts. It’s easier just to proclaim “racist” from one’s armchair or be brain-numbed by CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC or another snooze outlet masquerading as a news network.

However, Black and Hispanic America are waking up and catching on to the fallacious plots of the leftists. When Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter in a landslide (51-41%) in 1980, he did so with only 10% of the Black vote, while Carter garnered 86%. Recently, the liberal, lying Washington Post proclaimed that 92% of Blacks favor Biden for President. That is a strong contradiction to multiple other sources that have reported that Trump’s Black support has skyrocketed from 8% on Election Day in 2016, to over 40% today. Trump’s Hispanic support continues to grow and was last reported at 34%.

Now you know why the Democrats and their media shills are pulling out all the stops to destroy Trump before the election. Democrats are terrified about the election. They know they do not have a ghost of a chance in the November election with that kind of minority support for Trump. That support will continue to grow into Election Day as Democrats continue to prove to the minority communities that they do not care about law and order, Black lives or the survival of minority communities throughout the United States. On top of that, they have a candidate that often does not know what state or city he’s in, what day it is or what office he is running for in 2020.

Trump Accomplishments. George, you drone on about your perceived image of Trump and his “narcissism, self-absorption, moral deficiency, lying, Tweet fest name calling, and mental ineptitude. . . .” like some drunken sailor after watching CNN’s nightly Trump bashing. This character-deficient man, as you describe him, accomplished more positive things for the American people in his first 20 months (289, to be exact), then Obama did in eight years, or the Democrats have accomplished in several decades. Take some time and visit the list here: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/trumps-list-289-accomplishments-in-just-20-months-relentless-promise-keeping .

The Democratic Platform (in brief). No, I’m not going to waste my time to provide resources on most of this, that will come later. Most Trump supporters know this; non-Trumpers, do your own research. The Democrats’ platform in substance (they have no character):

  • An anti-God, anti-Christian agenda.
  • Anti-Bill of Rights; anti-American. Destroy the Second Amendment.
  • Anti-law enforcement and community protection; defund & disband the police.
  • Pro-Marxist, supporting BLM, Antifa, Nation of Islam and Muslim Brotherhood and funded by the same.
  • Pro-Abortion, killing of babies, including babies of color they claim to care about.
  • Anti-military, but pro-Russia, pro-China, pro-Iran.
  • Anti-capitalism. Pro-high taxes. Pro-Socialism. Destroy America’s energy sector.
  • Anti-Business, especially small businesses.
  • Support anti-American conglomerates like Google, Face Book, et al to control and restrict free speech that do not support the Democratic socialist narrative and agenda.
  • 200 years of racist policies and destruction of the Black community and families.
  • Anti-freedom of expression at any level.
  • Anti-family; anti-Marriage.
  • Pro-Perversion education of America’s youth.
  • Pro-Islam in America’s schools.
  • Anti-Jew; anti-Israel.
  • Pro-Open Borders & illegal immigration. Abolish I.C.E., i.e. illegal immigration law enforcement.
  • Pro-Voter fraud and elimination of citizen-only voting and elimination of the Electoral College and voter I.D.
  • Pro-Lying, deceit and fraud in trying to destroy a duly elected U.S. President.
  • Pro-Treason and insurrection.

But, go ahead, don’t vote for Trump, George, just because he does not fit your character mold. Would Abraham, David, Apostle Peter or Apostle Paul have met your standards? Probably not! After all, they were liars, deceivers, fornicators, murderers and denied Christ.

I will make it abundantly clear for George and other anti-Trumpers. President Trump is not a perfect man. But America is at war for its very survival. Voting for a Democrat at any level is voting for America’s destruction (go ahead, laugh) and the freedom you enjoy. You will be destroying America for your children and grandchildren—if America lasts that long.

Take the time to read the Black Lives Matter “Manifesto” which can be viewed here: https://blmmanifesto.com/. Among other fascist realities, they want THE ABOLITION OF THE LEGISLATIVE AND JUDICIAL BRANCHES OF THE US GOVERNMENT. Another words, they want a fascist dictator. The Democrats will only be too happy to oblige.

Go to the BLM website at: https://blacklivesmatter.com/what-we-believe/ and click on the “Donate” tab in the upper right corner. When the donation page opens, note that all donations go to “ActBlue.” What is ActBlue? ActBlue is a nonprofit technology organization established in June 2004 that enables left-leaning nonprofits, Democrats, and progressive groups to raise money on the Internet by providing them with online fundraising software. Its stated mission is to “empower small-dollar donors.” Interesting! The rioting, Marxist, terror group, Black Lives Matter, has actually been raising hundreds of millions for the Democratic machine and its candidates. These are the types of people the Democratic Party sleeps with on a daily basis—those who want to tear down America and destroy it forever. No wonder Democrats take foreign monies from Russia, China, Iran and anyone else who wants America DEAD.

George, what are you and your comrades thinking?

Culture of Death

March 7, 2018

Every time there is a mass shooting or some horrific event in the United States involving guns, some (usually Democratic or leftist) politician or leftist talking head 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 God, the Bible and prayer have been stripped from our nation’s schools and the killing of the innocent has become the law of the land.

I would put forth that it started the day in 1963 when prayer was outlawed in U.S. schools.  (I remember clearly that when I was in first grade in public school in the late 1940s that we started each day with a reading from Psalms or Proverbs, a recitation of the Lord’s Prayer, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.)  Prayer and then Bible reading were ripped from the children of America via three Supreme Court decisions in 1962 (Engel vs. Vitale) and in 1963 (Murray vs. Curlett and Abington Township School District vs. Schempp).  In all three cases, the High Court, led by liberal Chief Justice, Earl Warren, erroneously and boldly misinterpreted the First Amendment and cited the non-existing doctrine of separation of church and state that does not exist anywhere in the U.S. Constitution.  Essentially, the Supreme Court of the land was telling the nation’s children that Almighty God had no place in their life – no grounding of absolute truth; and no moral compass by which to judge one’s life.*

Then came the horrific Supreme Court ruling on  January 22, 1973 in Rowe vs. Wade that gave women in America the right to kill their unborn children.  Since that ungodly decision, American women/mothers have killed or allowed to be killed over 60 million of their babies – 60 MILLION!  So, what lesson did (and does) this teach America’s youth? That life is not worth much.  If your own mother can chose to end your life, then what is life worth?  NOTHING!  “So, why should I care about someone else’s life or my own?”

Abortion is a form of child sacrifice that God calls evil (see Leviticus 18:21, 20:1-5 and 1 Kings 11:5-8).   The debate from the left on what constitutes a human life in the mother’s womb is a non-issue as far as I am concerned and as far as God is concerned.  In the Bible, God declares that, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you . . .” (Isaiah 49:1, 5).  The left can argue all it wants about when a life is a life, but it is God who has stated that a life begins when He has conceived of it.

On top of these sweeping events affecting our nation’s children who become aggressive adults is the onslaught of violent video games and gratuitous Hollywood murder and mayhem filth that permeates our collective senses, but especially that of our youth.  Video games are no longer gratifying unless a 9 year old can blast away the humanoid of his choice or annihilate by a multitude of gruesome methods any foe he desires.  And we have the audacity to wonder why a growing number of our children are killing children or anyone else who invades their space.

One Virginia House of Delegates representative got it right in a speech before his peers on March 2, 2018.  You can watch and listen to it here.  Republican Nick Freitas (Culpepper, R-30) stated unequivocally that gun control is not the issue, the issue is the breakdown of our society.

PLEASE NOTE, the “culture of death” is not an issue of gun control or Second Amendment rights, but a mindset change on what is truly important to us as a people.  Do we want God in our lives or not?  Is murder, murder, whether of the unborn or those walking upright?  What respect for life do we truly honor and not give lip service to on a daily basis?

The great pastor and preacher, Dr. Peter Marshall, at the height of World War II gave a riveting sermon on March 11, 1944 called Trial by Fire.**  It was based on 1 Kings 18:21.  Some excerpts from that famous speech which I had the privilege of transcribing from a cassette tape his son gave me.

Materialism had a god, Dr. Marshall thundered.  His name was Baal. He offered to his devotees things that human instincts craved.  He was a god of the flesh.  His priests encouraged the people to follow their natural inclinations.  It was worship and indulgence expressed in lust and adorned in selfishness.  It had no inhibitions at all. . . .

So, morality became a relative thing.  The old absolutes were regarded as far too intolerant.  The national moral standards were lowered. . . .

It was a time now for men to take sides.  There was no middle ground.  They could not be neutral.  They had to be on one side or the other.  They had to decide whether their nation would be governed by God or ruled by tyrants. . . .

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!”

President George Washington also had it right.  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 cherish them (Farewell Speech, September 17, 1796).

*To learn more about these pivotal cases and the status of America, get my book, Revelation 18 and the Fate of America.

Early Headline: “Trump/Pence Win!”

November 6, 2016

As some of my early blogs on this election would testify, I was not enthusiastic about Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee. However, about two months ago I realized that this election is far more about the future of the nation; the administrative cabinets, department and agency heads, the Departments of Justice, Defense and Homeland Security in particular, that matter more than the presidential candidate.

That being said, while Trump has his baggage (as virtually all candidates do), one thing he has demonstrated far more than Clinton and that is his extreme patriotism and desire to right the wrongs in America.

So, here’s my prediction, and I will go way out on a limb. Trump will win.  Not only win, but win by a wide margin, perhaps 10 percent or more.  Here’s why:

  • A large number of moderate democrats who are sick of the Hillary (and Bill) scandals, habitual lying and self-enrichment, will either stay home or vote for Trump/Pence.
  • A growing number of Black and Hispanic voters are finally seeing the light and realizing that Hillary represents more of the same lies and disaster for minority populations.
  • Trump support is on a strong upswing right before the election, while Clinton’s is on the downswing.
  • While Trump has been focusing mostly on policy of late, the best Clinton can do is keep bringing up the old dead issue of Trump’s immoral pronouncements about women twenty years ago.
  • The FBI announcement about re-opening their Clinton investigation has shattered any support Clinton might have garnered from the undecideds. The majority will vote for Trump.
  • Trump supporters are not fair-weather supporters. They will vote no matter what the weather or obstacles.
  • More and more Americans are waking up to the depth of Clinton’s corruption.
  • The majority of Americans are sick of all the ineffectiveness and corruption in Washington.
  • Hillary Clinton represents more of the same Washington corruption; Trump represents a fresh face with new hope.
  • Patriotic Americans will vote against anyone who does not uphold the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.  Clinton is clearly against that provision of the Constitution.
  • The majority of Christian voters understand that Clinton is anti-Christian and anti-Israel.
  • People are realizing the real danger of the Clinton immigration and open borders policy.
  • American patriots have not forgotten about Benghazi and Clinton’s “what difference does it make” statement.
  • More Americans understand the disastrous foreign policies of Obama/Clinton that has resulted in the explosion of Islamic terrorism in the Middle East, Europe and the U.S.
  • The Obamacare debacle will hurt Clinton who is in favor of socialized medical care.
  • Traditionally democratic states are trending in favor of Trump or are “toss-ups” right before the election.
  • For the past few weeks Trump has been acting more presidential, while Clinton has been acting more unhinged.

So, here’s my bold prediction (not seen anywhere else): Trump/Pence will command 55% or more of the popular vote and at least 300 electoral votes (270 needed to win).

Now, that will prevent Hillary from pardoning herself. If we can be patient and wait until Trump takes office and select a new attorney general, then Obama will not be able to pardon her either should she be indicted.  That would be ideal.

 

The 2016 Presidential Election (Kathleen’s Insight)

October 16, 2016

There is one candidate who is for the things below and one who is opposed.

  • One is pro-Israel, the other is not.
  • One is for freedom of speech, the other wants to control speech.
  • One wants lawful immigration, the other wants open borders.
  • One wants justice in our court system, the other wants activist judges that create law, rather than interpret the law.
  • One wants free enterprise, the other wants increased government regulation.
  • One wants the U.S. Constitution to be the law of the land, the other favors the U.N. Constitution.
  • The one is pro-life, the other wants to support increased abortion, including partial-birth abortion.
  • The one supports freedom of religion, the other seeks to suppress Christianity in America.
  • One has never been investigated for criminal activity, while the other is under constant investigation for such activity at the highest levels.
  • One understands economics and the advantages of capitalism and job creation, the other favors socialism, government control and has never created a job in the free market.
  • The one profits from Wall Street through wise investment, the other profits from Wall Street by giving worthless speeches.
  • One stands firm against corruption in government, the other has been a part of that corruption for decades.
  • One seeks advice from Christian leaders, the other relies on radical socialists.
  • The one wants to rebuild our decimated military, the other wants to continue its demise.
  • The one wants parental control of education, the other wants government control.
  • The one wants to protect America’s sovereignty, the other wants a One World globalist America.
  • One supports racial equality, the other foments racial divisiveness.
  • One respects and supports the sacrifice of America’s veterans, the other despises America’s military personnel.
  • One has demonstrated financial responsibility in matters of finance, the other had $6 billion of taxpayer monies disappear and unaccounted for during time in government office.
  • One believes in parents and families raising children, the other believes government should.
  • One is surrounding himself with patriotic leaders, the other with far left socialists.
  • One expresses the love of country and countrymen, the other speaks of despising fellow Americans.
  • One is for equal opportunity and the “American Dream”, the other for the re-distribution of wealth.
  • One opposes gay rights and gay marriage, the other believes they are constitutional guarantees like freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
  • One stands for law and order, the other for selective justice.

God did not choose to give us a Christian candidate. Perhaps that was the fault of the divided Christian community.  Instead, He gave us a person who is a “work in progress” like all of us.  One who believes in justice and who has strong convictions not unlike most Christians but expresses those convictions in ways that are often unacceptable to most of us.  However, they are sincerely held beliefs.  The other candidate provides evidence every day of being a pathological liar who has repeatedly deceived the American people.

A City on a Hill. If the Church and we as Christians are called to be “the salt of the earth” . . . “the light of the world” . . . and to be “A city set on a hill” that should not be hidden (Jesus in Matthew 5:13-14), why is it so hard for many Christians to believe that God planted His church and His people in America for the sake of the nation?

From the very founding of our country God has given His church (and His people) the responsibility for the spiritual well being of the nation. He gave America a constitution based on Judeo-Christian values—not Islamic, not Hindu, not atheistic or any other).  It has proved to be the best form of self-government the world has ever known.  Ironically, but by political design, our educational system now teaches the value of the U.N. constitution and globalism and Islamic thought.  These are two very different anti-freedom, anti-Christian and oppressive systems.  Partly as a result of these re-education systems (and to a lesser degree, biblical interpretations), many Christians believe that they should not be involved in politics or hold political office.  God foresaw this outcome of anti-God globalism with His revelation to the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos nearly 2000 years ago.

As Christians living in America we are part of the most unique “experiment” in the history of the world—a self-governing people whose laws and way of life were founded on biblical principles. The Church was planted here in America for the sake of the country and the mandate of Christians to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide.

As citizens of God’s Kingdom on earth we have a responsibility to demonstrate God’s love and righteousness in our midst; to be accountable for our actions or lack thereof in standing up for righteousness and mercy. I believe this is America’s last call for redemption.  The advantage that Satan has is that the Church has always been divided by pettiness, pride, rivalry and biblical incidentals.  We have untold denominations and sects, each believing they have the “truth”.  Here is the “truth”—“a kingdom” (country) or “house divided cannot stand” (Matthew 12:25).  America is divided mainly because the Church is divided.

For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins  with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?  (1 Peter 4:17).

Founding Father, John Adams, in his Thoughts on Government (1776), wrote: Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it. It is the responsibility of the populace, the American people, including Christians, to hold their elected officials accountable for their actions and decisions and to make sure they are upholding the law of the land and not implementing their own for their own benefit or agenda. An election is the one best opportunity, bar a revolution, to bring about a change of government when one is needed.

John Adams, in a speech before the Militia of Massachusetts declared, Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other (October 11, 1798). Perhaps that is America’s biggest problem, we have fallen away from God and as a whole are no longer a people of faith.  We have allowed our Constitution to be trashed by globalists and irreligious elitists with self-serving interests and not that of the people.  God will hold Christians accountable for the outcome of America’s unique world contribution to self-government.

 

The 2016 Presidential Election

October 16, 2016

A Christian’s Perspective

As Christians and Americans we have a challenging decision to make this election. Never in the history of our country have we had two least desirable candidates for the highest office in the land and perhaps the most powerful leadership position in the world.  For most, the decision boils down to Clinton or Trump, or “none of the above.”  It has been a presidential campaign marked by continuous accusations, threats, intimidations and lapses in moral character—all of which should be reprehensible for the Christian believer.

The truth is, America has never had a righteous, sinless person run or get elected to public office.  Not even George Washington, who was unquestionably the best and most humble person to hold the office of president of the United States.

However, I have come to realize, that despite the undesirable nature of each major candidate, for the Christian or patriotic American, this election is not about, “do I vote for Clinton or Trump?”, but what kind of presidential administration, judicial system, military, law, immigration policy, respect of life, civil rights, respect of the Bill of Rights and U.S. Constitution, etc. do I want and expect from the nation’s leadership?  Which candidate is most likely to surround himself or herself with law abiding cabinet members that will implement the will of the people?  Which one will seek to establish a judicial system that not only follows the Constitution, but interprets the law and does not make new law without the consent of the people or Congress?  Which one will rebuild the U.S. military that has been decimated over the last 8 years to levels not seen since WWII?  Which one will seek to re-establish racial harmony and oneness instead fomenting divisiveness?  Which one has pledged to respect the lives of the unborn?  Which one will uphold justice for all?  Which one has pledged to follow the Bill of Rights which guarantees the freedom of speech, religion, the press, right to peacefully assemble and bear arms?  Which one has agreed to protect our country’s borders and implement a sane immigration policy? Which one is likely to follow the law when signing into law congressional laws or mandates?

The presidency is much more than just the presidential candidate, it is the course of America and what we desire our country to look like.  Now, let me make myself clear: As a Christian, I am a Christ follower first, then an American in terms of birth and placement.  I have said for years that America has slid past the point where human intervention will save her.  Only God can and will redeem her, but only if the Church and its people repent for allowing things to get this bad through ignoring sin and refusing to stand up for righteousness.

Obama Announces Gun Control Task Force

December 19, 2012

[I know, I have been pretty quiet since the election.  I’m still recovering from the shock of American stupidity in re-electing a do-nothing, incompetent, Marxist, freedom-destroying racist as president of the once great nation of America.]

“Obama announces gun control task force.”  Well, no surprise here.  Obama and his ilk will jump at any opportunity to savage the Second Amendment.  Just in case you are not familiar with the 2nd Amendment, The Right to Bear Arms, here it is in its short, sweet and clear one sentence:  A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep  and bear arms, shall not be infringed.   Why was this amendment to our (used to be) cherished U.S. Constitution so important to the Founding Fathers and those that signed the Constitution?  Simply, because it follows their thinking in the 1st Amendment:  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  Without the 2nd Amendment, citizens of the United States cannot protect the five freedoms (religion, speech, press, assembly and redress of grievances) in the 1st Amendment.  That is what has made America the most unique (not perfect) country in the history of the world, along with its foundation built on  Judeo-Christian faith and principles.

. . . shall not be infringed.  What exactly does that phrase mean?  What did the Founders intend for it to mean?  To infringe upon something or someone means to violate established law or violate a person’s right or break an oath to them in supporting and defending their right(s).  To infringe upon someone’s rights means that you are limiting or eliminating their freedoms.

The Founding Fathers, the architects of the Constitution and the signers of the United States Constitution had vivid memories of their fight for freedom and separation from the tyrannical and oppressive government of England.  They wanted to make sure that future generations would not fall victim to or become captive to such a government in the future.  If the tyrannical, marxist powers now gaining strength in the U.S. are successful in weakening, modifying, restricting or even abolishing the 2nd Amendment, how long will it be before part or all of the 1st Amendment will  be under full scale attack?  The 1st Amendment in many ways has been under assault from our own government for years, in both subtle and forthright beatings.

I have a novel idea:  Instead of gutting the 2nd Amendment and leaving us defenseless against criminals and a corrupt government, how about the church and politicians get some backbone and “destroy” abortion.  You know, that hideous act of pure murder of the unborn, near born and recently born.

Since the passage of Rowe vs. Wade legislation in 1973 that “legalized” abortion in the United States over 54 million innocent lives have been slaughtered in or outside the womb.  Worldwide, over 1.3 billion babies have been murdered.  And this is only those abortions that were recorded as “legal” murders.  One cannot promote a culture that values life when one actively, blatantly and with wanton disregard for precious life promote a culture of death—legally taking the lives of the most innocent and unprotected.  If mothers can callously take the life of their unborn for no greater reason than such a birth would be “inconvenient”, “unwanted”, “untimely” or “unaffordable”, why would we expect our surviving offspring to respect life?

And, here’s another novel idea:  Instead of spending hundreds of millionsof dollars each year (over $1 billion from 2002-2009) of taxpayer monies to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to take the life of America’s future, let us channel it to pay for better mental health programs and support.

There always has been and always will be violent criminals and the murder of innocent people.  That is the product of a sinful, unrepentant, fallen world.  Controlling or banning guns in the hands of responsible citizens who desire to exercise their Second Amendment rights to “bear arms” for sport or self-protection will not reduce violent deaths at the hands of those so intent on doing so.  It will only open the door to even more criminal violence.

For more on America’s earlier history, review or purchase We the People: Laying the Foundation and/or We the People: Birth of a Nation from Amazon.com or AuthorHouse.  The second title is also available in Amazon’s Kindle format or both volumes are available as e-books at AuthorHouse.
