Illustration: The “Killing Fields” of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. During that time millions of Cambodians died of starvation, execution, disease or overwork during the re-education and “transformation” of Cambodia into the “ideal” society. Pol Pot was ideologically a Marxist–Leninist and a Khmer nationalist. He applied the horrors of Marxist philosophy just as the communist playbook directed. Those who could not be “reformed” and “reeducated” were murdered.
“If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.” (Joseph Stalin)
There are constants in life. Our idiomatic phrase assures us that “one thing leads to another.” This simply means that when we act in a certain way we can be assured that another action is coming; a series of events has been set in motion and the result is certain.
One of the vilest perpetrators of political purges was Joseph Stalin. Stalin’s memorable quote regarding his attitude toward those in the opposition was: “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.” This epitomizes the energy of the Purge—The ruling Elite decides you are wrong, you are to be punished, and you have no option but submit!
And so, I make the tragic announcement: Welcome to the “killing fields” of the 21st Century! Prepare for the Purge that is coming to YOU! Anticipate the “reeducation” centers your children and grandchildren will be forced to attend.
HOW IS THIS HAPPENING?
How can a political purge be tolerated? How can the population sit complacently while a “list” of the “undesirables” is cobbled together by the various Elite authorities? The answer is very simple. “The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better” (George Orwell). History proves that when people feel happy they will tolerate anything; they will do anything; they will cling to the happy avenue even when told it is bringing destruction. This is clearly evident in the choices of drug addicts but it is also evident in the lives of those addicted to the methods that are being used to prepare for the Purge. Happy people are going to be less vigilant, more open about every aspect of life that gives them happy feelings, and they are eager to share their personal/private with everyone! This manipulated happiness brings an unimagined harvest of personal data to the Elites.
How can personal/private data be so easily obtained by the Elite who compile a list of the “undesirables”? You safely guard your family by making sure their diet is healthy; you double-check all doors to make sure they are locked; you warn about “stranger danger”; you insist that seatbelts be worn…BUT you have served up the security and welfare of your family on a silver platter by posting photos, family details, all aspects of your life on social media (most use Facebook) and permitting anyone to “friend” you and then you are in their list and available to their pages and they have access to your pages. You have connected with untold “friends” who are connected with untold numbers who are privy to “your page.” The platform administrators know all details about you. Your posts have been mined for details that will amaze you. You have been warned BUT you continue to expose your children grandchildren and all you love to this “social disease.” I am speechless.
WHAT EVIDENCES ARE AVAILABLE
First, The DEMOCRATS/RINOS/NEVER TRUMPERS (NTs) advocate the removal of a free press. The conservative publications are classified as the seedbed of treasonous news. Having been such identified the solution is simple—destroy all publications that do not agree with the PROGRESSVE/DEMS/RINOS/NTs! “We’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation, and misinformation,” said Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). “Congress is looking into reining in our media environment to prevent the spread of disinformation.” She has not only targeted freedom of the press but has suggested that lists of Trump supporters should be compiled and used to hold the President’s supporters accountable in the future.
In an amazing Twitter exchange on January 13, 2021 AOC stated, “The only way our country is going to heal is through the actual liberation of southern states…liberation of working people from an economic, social, and racial oppression.” According to PROGRESSIVE DEMS this reeducation of the Southern States is critical if the USA is to be “healed.”
The Purge is VERBALIZED—“Here is a sitting member of Congress saying that her party intends to shut down any media that they disagree with and nobody from the liberal media has a problem with it at all. That’s probably because they know the democrats aren’t coming after them, and censorship and speech suppression don’t count when it happens to conservative media.”
Second, The DEMOCRATS/RINOS/NEVER TRUMPERS (NTs) are beginning the Purge. There are ample reports about this occurring. I have had opportunity to talk personally with those who endured the Khmer Rouge purge and lived in the re-education camps. I have personally talked with family members who had loved ones exiled to the USSR gulags because of political views. The horrors of past history explain the unthinkable horrors that are becoming evident in the USA today. From the Halls of Congress to the rants of the news anchors on MSM that are broadcast to millions, the Purge is being encouraged.
There is a hit list targeting Trump and his supporters. It is confirmed that the PROGRESSVE/DEMS/RINOS/NTs have lists of those who need to be punished and reeducated. During the week of 10 January 2021 it was announced by Forbes that the large corporations in the USA must never hire any Trump supporter! Here is the threatening intimidation: “Donald Trump devolved from commander-in-chief to liar-in-chief.” The magazine mocks Trump associates as “fabulists.” It goes on to say, “Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet.” Forbes then makes an explicit threat to report negatively on any company that dares hire any of the people supporting Trump. “Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away.”
This is not imagined—this is the current reality!
Another frightening point of the USA political Purge is documented by the action of Hillary Clinton who has called for ALL Trump supporters to be identified as “Domestic Terrorists.” Identified as such, these terrorists need to be tracked and surveilled (January 12, 2021). Clinton labeled Trump supporters “white supremacists” and “domestic terrorists” in a Washington Post op-ed. “Emboldened by the Big Tech purge of President Trump and thousands of conservatives, Hillary Clinton is now calling for Trump supporters to be surveilled and tracked.” How does HRC justify her labeling of political opponents? Listen to her own words, “Trump ran for president on a vision of America where whiteness is valued at the expense of everything else. In the White House, he gave white supremacists, members of the extreme right and conspiracy theorists their most powerful platforms yet… he had whipped a dangerous element of our country into a frenzy. His supporters began planning their insurrection, making plans to march on the Capitol and ‘stop the steal.’ Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached. Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately. But that alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America. There are changes elected leaders should pursue immediately, including advocating new criminal laws at the state and federal levels that hold white supremacists accountable and tracking the activities of extremists…Twitter and other companies made the right decision to stop Trump from using their platforms, but they will have to do more to stop the spread of violent speech and conspiracy theories.”
Do you hear what she is advocating? The Purge is to target those with “whiteness.” It is the obvious RACIAL PURGE ever recorded in history. She calls for new laws to hold Trump supporters accountable and for their everyday activities to be tracked. She says “more” will have to be done—it is frightening to consider what this “more” involves!
The beginning of the political Purge is highlighted by a Congressional bill proposed by Dem Whip James Clyburn who intends to make the “Black National Anthem” the official USA National Hymn in order to “bring the country together.” This is acceptable to the PROGRESSVE/DEMS/RINOS/NTs because they reject “linear reasoning.” All decisions are based on their “feelings” at the moment (this is the fruit of rejecting any absolutes in life).
One of the clearest Purge actions was announced in a No-Fly order by DELTA. Common citizens were targeted by this vicious action. This article describes this action, Delta Puts Trump Supporters Who Harassed Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham On No-Fly List.“Delta has put some of President Donald Trump’s most aggressive supporters on a no-fly list, after they harassed Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Mitt Romney (Utah) in airports last week. In an interview with Reuters on Thursday, Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said that passengers who targeted the senators would no longer be able to fly on the airline. The airline confirmed the move.”
The reality of the Purge is illustrated by baseball great Curt Shilling. He received a notice that AIG was canceling his insurance. Why? Schilling tweeted that AIG canceled his insurance policy due to his “social media profile.” Now, after this Purge, tell me that Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms are really a “nice” business! The Purge says your “social media profile” is a valid reason to terminate your insurance!
The Purge is enacted—Here is a well-written summary with the title “The Left Launches Massive Purge of Conservatives All Across Society” …We no longer live in America…We now and hence forward will live in a Banana Republic where liberals seek the utter destruction of their counterparts, not just politically, but in personal terms, and in total. Democrats and their willing quislings in big tech and society are now looking to purge this country of anyone who oppose them. We are living in a time just short of Castro’s revolution where tens of thousands were murdered to wipe out their political ideals. While we are not quite yet at the death squad stage, we are at the stage where the left intends to perpetrate intellectual genocide. It will be the end of any conservative thought on the Internet, in our schools, governments, entertainment, and society…The great purge has already begun, you see. Late last week, the gods of big tech, and the heads of corporations already began to initiate the Democrat Party’s version of Mao’s ‘cultural revolution’.”
Third, The DEMOCRATS/RINOS/NEVER TRUMPERS (NTs) fulfill their promise of “fundamental transformation” of the USA. Obama announced his intentions of “fundamentally transforming America.” Most shrugged at his devious evil objective and said “that will never happen in America!” They were blind and ignorant of the historical pattern he was following. Life in the USA will be fundamentally transformed when the PROGRESSVE/DEMS/RINOS/NTs are allowed full exercise of their plan. We are in the early stages of the Purge but a more devilish agenda lies ahead. The full impact of this evil is best presented in a report from Project Veritas that recorded PBS Principal Counsel Michael Beller inciting violence against Trump supporters in a radical leftwing rant. Read this amazing statement: “Even if Biden wins, we go for all the Republican voters, and Homeland Security will take their children away, and we’ll put Trump supporters’ children into re-education camps,” the man, identified as Beller in the undated video, says. Trump’s supporters are raising “horrible children” that will become “horrible people,” he continues. “Kids who are growing up, knowing nothing but Trump, [Trump supporters] will be raising a generation of intolerant horrible people, horrible kids.”
The Purge is promised—What is happening has been public for some time but many dismissed it as “impossible in the USA.” These refuse to accept the reality of the pure evil threatening our nation’s existence. What has been promised is now being delivered by the PROGRESSVE/DEMS/RINOS/NTs and many citizens are allowing it to happen.
Fourth, The Purge is directed by the Political Elite. There is a historical constant in the narratives of political purges. Actions are commanded and controlled by an “Elite” group. This Elite is never required to do what is commanded of the population. Pol Pot and his inner-circle never dirtied their hands with the agrarian revolution that forced the evacuation of cities and the “killing fields” of anarchy. Today the political Elite in the USA is composed of the DEMOCRATS/RINOS/NEVER TRUMPERS (NTs) who think they sit invincibly in the “catbird seat” issuing demands, damning President Trump and his supporters. But historical reality teaches that these are not “invincible” and will be replaced as the Elite turns to bite and devour one another.
The direction of the Elite will include forced reeducation. When North Vietnam captured the south, millions in the south were arrested, tortured, imprisoned, murdered and the survivors were sent to reeducation camps. In another undercover video, Kyle Jurek, an Iowa field organizer for the Sanders campaign, said the country will have to “spend billions” on reeducation. Jurek suggested the use of gulags for “reeducation” of Trump supporters and praised political labor camps. He said gulags have been misunderstood and were actually “a lot better” than described.
If you are offended by the language of the Elite and you choose neither to read nor listen to their abominable words then prepare yourself for an even greater shock when the Purge strikes your friend and family!
The Purge is Directed by the Elite—This point is best summarized: “The will of the American people has to be subordinate to the will of Pelosi” — Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) January 12, 2021.
This is where we are…
The citizens of the USA are in the most precarious position our nation has faced. Devilish forces from within are seeking to change fundamentally our nation. Our political process has been in a failed state for some years. There is no longer civil debate and reasoned laws based upon our Constitution. Foreign governments have compromised national legislators and suborned the integrity of the House of Representatives and Senate—and such is met only with shrugs and reelection of the failed politicians!
The Big Tech companies (Facebook; Apple; Google; Twitter, etc) have successfully de-platformed free speech, marked and tracked innocent citizens as national “terrorists.” We are assured that a “list” of Trump supporters is compiled and will be used to identify and punish the “terrorists.” “Let’s be real for once. When members of the press and law openly call for child confiscation, reeducation camps and punishments for the side they don’t like. Then we live in a banana republic.”
Illustrating just how the Big Tech companies (Facebook; Apple; Google; Twitter) devilishly plan to Purge those who hold conservative views is the recent release of a leaked video from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. He attacked free speech in America with his decision to ban permanently the accounts of President Trump and many other conservative voices. Now a published video, by a Twitter insider, it is revealed that Dorsey vows that censorship will be much broader in scope. “We are focused on one account [@realDonaldTrump] right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration.We need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don’t believe this is going away anytime soon.”
America! The political Purge HAS begun. Many of you who have sat in silence and indifferently thought that you are safe from all political intrigue must awaken to the reality of life in the USA. You can continue to play around on Facebook, Twitter and the other Big Tech sites. BUT, you are fueling their efforts to destroy the USA. There is NO INNOCENCE on the Big Tech sites. Those involved on these sites are upholding the Purge!
One final reference to plead for YOU to act now to stop the Purge.
Cheryl K. Chumley (The Washington Times – Friday, January 15, 2021) posted an article titled, “Big Tech will only be halted by mass boycott.” As usual she presents an excellent read detailing how the political Purge is possible because the Big Tech gives big money. The way to stop the Purge is to stop the money. “The only way to stop Big Tech and put an end to the social media CEOs’ hatred of and hostility to all-things-conservative is for consumers to rally in one huge mass and mount an immediate boycott of all these platforms. But the chance of that happening, seriously, is slim. Slim to none, actually. Big Tech will only be stopped from its takeover of free speech if citizens fight in a way that hits hard at the pocketbooks. But the reality is most citizens are unaware of Big Tech’s power, others are unconcerned.” And this should be a PERMANENT boycott—not just 24 hours!
Are you concerned enough for your nation, your family, your children and your grandchildren to boycott permanently Big Tech? The decision will be difficult because as Orwell observed many will opt for “happiness” instead of “freedom.” The Big Tech knows they have your hooked with “happiness” and so you will sacrifice your freedom. “The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better” (George Orwell).

“Woe to those who drag wrongdoing with the cords of deceit, and sin as if with cart ropes; Who say, ‘Let Him hurry, let Him do His work quickly, so that we may see it…Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight! Woe to those who…declare the wicked innocent for a bribe, and take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!’”
History has shown the arrogance of culture’s “Intellectuals.”A quick scan of any historical period will highlight pompous politicians and the compliant masses eagerly led by the elitists.
There is a connection between the elite politicians and the violence of revolution. These go “hand-in-glove.” Consequently, where there are political elites managing the affairs of State there will be instigations of violence so the State’s ideals will be implemented. Especially is this true when Marxists takeover society and wield violence as a useful tool to advance their cause. This violence is presented to the public as necessary and justified. It is amazingly characterized in terms of non-violence! The success of the campaign relies upon the pairing of the elites and those used in violent actions.
Unfortunately, this pairing is visible in our time. While the general populace struggles with how they can satisfy the basic necessities of life, the elite enjoys an unrestricted binge and glut of pleasurable excesses. The crude comment by Marie-Antionette said—“Let them eat cake.” This reportedly came when the Queen was told that her French subjects could not get common bread and “cake” was a dream. The Queen’s callous remark highlighted her uppity opinion of the “perpendicular pronoun.” She became a hated symbol of the decadent monarchy and fueled the revolution that would cause her to lose her head at the guillotine. Marie-Antoinette was also known and hated for her lavish lifestyle publicly flaunted.
The Perpendicular Pronoun
In our time two political “elites” share Marie-Antionette’s uppity opinion of the “perpendicular pronoun.” (But these are not the exception because the general rule is that all in the governing State feel empowered to feast on benefits while the general population struggles with a famine. The examples of these two present a façade of sensitivity but masks a cunning objective to change a nation’s destiny.
First, a report revealed the Speaker of the House consoling Americans. Her feigned sympathy was stated standing in front of a $24,000.00 refrigerator filled with gourmet ice cream! Incredulously Pelosi showed off her ample supply of designer ice cream, gelato and other frozen treats suggesting that she was compliant with social distancing. However, her “show” was a visible record of just how out of touch she is with the common citizen. She was buying ice cream by mail and restocking her supply for Easter when many Americans could not find a roll of toilet tissue. It’s her version of “Let them eat cake,” and hopefully she will be made to pay the price for her insensitivity.
A second illustration of the political elite’s arrogance vies with Marie-Antionette’s insensitivity. Fox News reported that Freshman Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) wore outfits and jewels costing more than $14,000.00 for her spread in Vanity Fair magazine’s December issue. She was gifted a $2,850 suit from Loewe for the shoot, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The actions of today’s Progressives/Liberals/DEMS/RINOS/BLM/ANTIFA/RINOS have far surpassed Marie-Antionette of 1793! And yet, we are told that people voting for those campaigning on the Democratic platform, and who call themselves “Democrats,” are “very satisfied” with what their elitist leaders are doing. A timely query is asked by Victor Davis Hanson: “Where is common sense these days?”
The political elites must find a way to further their agenda so that “transformation” of the USA occurs and the evils of our Republic’s rule are punished. We thus see how the elites utilize violence to navigate successfully their takeover. It is unfortunate that society has been desensitized to the violence seeking to destroy our nation. Even though cities burn, anarchy reigns and murderers roam freely, the elites are telling us long and strong that only “peaceful protests” are present in our nation’s metro areas!
I was appalled when I heard the first reports of these “peaceful” protests. And that shock increased when the Democratic Mayors and Governors, whose cities were burning, parroted the “peaceful” spin. Even when video reports are filmed with a backdrop of violence, arson, and assault we are told these are “peaceful.”As the situation devolved the statement was adjusted to say these were “mostly peaceful”!
How can reasonable people accept this flagrant untruth? The answer is understanding that this is not a new maneuver but one rooted in historical tactics to further Marxism.
Look back 1920-1923 and consider events framed by the Russian-Polish War. One interesting fact about this war instantly arises in regard to these “peaceful protests.”
A published paper (by MIROSŁAW SZUMIŁO 12.08.2020) discussing the war suggests “the Bolsheviks took power not to change Russia, but to use it as a trampoline for world revolution.”
Commanding the attack on the western front was Mikhail Tukhachevski. Preparing his troops for action he gave his famous order: “Soldiers of the workers’ revolution – turn your eyes to the west. On bayonets, we will carry happiness and peace to working humanity.” This was printed 9 May 1920 in Pravda as “Go West!” It solidified the Bolsheviks’ propaganda objectives and recruited troops.
Pay attention to the psychological ploy in the propaganda that fixed attention on “peace.” Who could say that “peace” was bad. But it subtly embraced the violence necessary for the revolution and the murderous intent of the bayonet! You have to admit the subtle cunning was masterful. Consequently, thousands were sacrificed and the remainder sulked back to the Motherland after being defeated at the Battle of Warsaw.
The elite Marxists announced happiness and peace was only possible at the point of the bayonet! And so, in today’s Marxist announcements we have the justification that arson, anarchy, and murder is actually “peaceful”! Isaiah would angrily object saying “You turn things around!” (29:16). How can “bad” be “good” unless the propaganda machine dictates that the population accept it? Anyone failing to accept the revised status as good is to be penalized.
The elitist arrogance that is visible today, was evident in the Russian leaders. Trotsky was bold in his speech about sacrifice for the Motherland but he lived almost permanently on an armored train, travelling from one front to the next, supervising progress, meeting officers and delivering rousing speeches to Red Army soldiers. Trotsky was as brutal to the common man as he was motivating and uplifting. One would never know his ruthlessness from his polished propaganda!
An poignant observation is made by Alexander Rubtsov regarding the Russian/Polish War. “Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky had a different scale: the Sovietization of Poland, the collapse of the Versailles system, and then a world fire! After World War II, the Soviet global project became more sophisticated and focused on assembling the socialist camp, national liberation movements, and all progressive humanity.”
The point not to be missed is the vision that the entire globe is targeted for the Marxist Project! In 1920 it was called “Sovietization.” In our current time is it referred to as the “globalization” of political, economic, and cultural differences so all become citizens of the “One-World Government.” And, who is surprised to learn that only the political elites are capable lead the sheeple to that grand utopia.
DO NOT ignore this unmistakable parallel…the “mostly peaceful protests” in the 1920s were advancing civilization at the point of the Marxist bayonets!
Threat to Our Republic
Americans beware! There is a visible and vocal threat to our Republic. Freedoms are being replaced with the tyranny of the elitists boasting they know better than the common citizen. These travel in armored cars and are far from the realities of daily existence. They stand in front of refrigerators feigning sincere concern while flaunting their superiority. They call for equality in wages and living standards while being gifted clothing that cost thousands of dollars. They strut and parade as royalty seeking the fawning of the peasants. The Democratic candidates in the 2020 Presidential election claim that a “transformation” of the USA is essential! We are told the “peaceful protests” will bring necessary results. This is a rephrasing of the Russian propaganda “On bayonets, we will carry happiness and peace to working humanity.”
Only those who do not think will accept that bayonets and peace are synonymous! Isaiah would have said, “You turn things around!”
It is all a LIE! And those who support and vote for the Democratic Party join in this lie.
The current political elitist reminds me of Mary Howell’s poem. The Spider and the Fly describes a cunning invitation to one to choose destruction. The poem is an enlightening read in the context of the invitation offered by the Progressives/Liberals/DEMS/RINOS/BLM/ANTIFA on 3 November 2020. The poem also presents the unavoidable outcome for those who foolishly accept the invitation.
Here is an excerpt of the poem:
“Will you walk into my parlor?” said the spider to the fly; “‘Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you may spy. “There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin, “And if you like to rest a while, I’ll snugly tuck you in!” “Said the cunning spider to the fly: “Dear friend, what can I do “To prove the warm affection I’ve always felt for you?”
Howell’s poem closes with a somber injunction to those being tempted:
“And now, dear little children, who may this story read, “To idle, silly flattering words I pray you ne’er give heed; “Unto an evil counselor close heart and ear and eye, “And take a lesson from this tale of the spider and the fly.”
Today’s electorate has a choice to make. It can choose a proven administration that has brought historic levels of success and freedom to our nation. Or it can choose an administration that will transform our nation and turn toward a global vision in which they will “on bayonets carry happiness and peace to working humanity.”
The elitist actions of today’s pols echo the terrors yesteryear’s elites. This ought to convince the electorate of 3 November 2020 to either vote out every Democrat or to vote for those in that political party and sacrifice the security of our constitutional Republic. We are a nation governed by the Constitution and not by the whims of an elite minority who has neither respect for the Rule of Law, the principles of humanity nor the personal liberty of the citizens.
There is a historical connection between the terrors that have savaged civilization in times past and the positions advocated by the Progressives/Liberals/DEMS/RINOS/BLM/ANTIFA!
Donald Trump is now in a fight for his political life. Pray and stand behind President Trump for eventual victory.

You definitely remember where you were on September 11, 2001 when the Twin Towers collapsed. This article examines where you were 19 years later (September 11, 2020).
Click on this countdown that gives the day when our general election will our nation either secure our liberty or the progressives will sacrifice our freedom…
Each morning’s news briefings highlight the steady march of our nation to a decision regarding its destiny. When each day’s developments are added to the existing analysis of information already made public, a serious alarm is sounded. Below are four points that I ask you to consider. These look at the facts and developments that are the vanguard of the November 3, 2020 general election.
In war the key to victory is formulating a strategy that is communicated simply and deployed easily. The messaging of the invading forces must follow the elementary principles of propaganda so the masses will be “softened” and open to the coming conflict (hence historically military operations have dropped brochures and leaflets to persuade the population of the intended conflict to be less resistant to those about to invade and more willing to oppose those targeted for removal).
In war the key to a successful defense is knowledge, understanding and action that disrupts and destroys the enemy’s strategy.
Currently YOU are involved in this strategy. YOU are targeted by a constant pre-emptive propaganda blitz. The below points are not fiction. They are not idle and inconsequential exercises of “war games.” YOU are being manipulated by fear mongering. YOU are being intimidated by deliberate design. YOU are being censored as you utilize social media platforms generating millions of dollars for the purpose of supporting an agenda with the objective of sedition.
Angrily YOU say, “I DO NOT support such!” This is where the analysis becomes interesting. Exposed is the cleverly designed objective to manipulate you so YOU are a “useful idiot” in the strategy destroying your nation. Hence the warning is applicable: “Consider yourselves warned, America.”
Please read all points below.
A fitting introduction is taken from Kelly’s (see below for link) article (first point) published in American greatness: “Their plan, using the intentionally misleading title, ‘Transition Integrity Project,’ outlines alarming and wholly unconstitutional responses to a number of post-election scenarios. Once upon a time, I would’ve read such a far-fetched document through tears of laughter. But considering the desperation and depravity of the people involved, this terrifying roadmap needs to be taken seriously.”
Kelly astutely warns, “A vengeful and well-funded coalition of Trump-hating insurrectionists are prepping the battlefield for a post-election civil war, threatening not only to extend the 2020 election into 2021 but to weaponize every tool at their disposal to make sure Joe Biden assumes the presidency even if President Trump legitimately wins.”
The article details how the DEMS/Liberal Left/Progressives have mapped the plan for the compromise, confusion, chaos, and eventual censure of the election’s results.
“Organizers, including Clinton loyalist John Podesta and NeverTrump leader Bill Kristol, have been playing war games for the past few months, plotting how to deploy media, government, and public armies to install Biden no matter what. Their scorched earth strategy rests on two factors: the use of widespread mail-in voting, intended to delay the official result so they can manipulate the outcome while stoking civil unrest until Republicans cry uncle, and the notion that if he loses, President Trump will claim the Democrats stole the election, a legitimate possibility that this plan only serves to further validate.”
The objective that is planned is that a “constitution crisis” will be announced and the chaos will be exploited for a violent overthrow of the elected officials and the placement of those specifically selected to “transform” the USA from its Constitutional Republic into the “whatever-will-evolve” governing structure.
Key to this operation are the mass protests, the continued poisoning of the public’s mind by the evil propaganda spewed by the hateful media, destruction of valid ballots and the harvesting of false ballots. Critical to this operation will be the constant turmoil that is stirred by the DEMS in their attacks on our President and those in his Administration. The “TIP” group at one point envisioned at least 4 million Biden supporters taking to the streets with warnings of “violent skirmishes and vandalism.”
These insurrectionists plan and predict that there will be “a breakdown in the joint session of Congress by getting the House of Representatives to agree to award the presidency to Biden based on the alternative pro-Biden submissions sent by pro-Biden governors.” January 20, 2021 would arrive with no clear winner, raising the specter of military action.
Alarm #2 Sounding
An EXCEPTIONAL communication was received on 10 September 2020…
Friend, Democrats masked and impoverished America to rig an election. COVID-19 has been wildly inflated to scare Americans and increase the people’s reliance upon the government. Every four years, the Democrats have a new ploy to take the focus away from qualified candidates and stir national pandemonium—thinking that this will scare Americans into voting blue. This year the American people are waking up…Nancy Pelosi’s salon blowout trip without a mask made it clear that COVID-19 is not a real threat to the Democrats. Nancy has no problem putting the single mother who owns the salon out of work and shutting down her business in order to achieve a radical Leftist political agenda. The unhinged far-Left has now become the face of the Democrat party. Children are 20x more likely to die in an accident and 10x more likely to die of the flu than to die of COVID-19 and yet they are masking your small children in school — why?! It all goes back to the election. Democrats are scaring voters into fraudulent mail-in voting. I am working against the radical Democrat party to unleash the truth during this election cycle. The Democrats are using COVID-19 and BLM to push their political agenda and once this election cycle ends they will forget all about the pandemic and the BLM movement. Every Democrat city has been run into the ground and is a distressing scene of poverty and high crime rates. Their policies have not helped minorities and they never will. America needs to wake up and realize that the Left has been lying to them year after year for decades.
Here is probably the one point that will ignite your ire toward me more than anything else. We are dealing with facts and not what you feel or how you have been manipulated to ignore the facts. The facts are given by those involved. Right before your eyes are the very words of those subtly seeking to manipulate the election (it appears most are as ancient Judah who had ears but would not hear and eyes but refused to see in Jeremiah 5:21). The evidence has been abundantly presented by investigative reporters. This states the FACTS of the situation and not what you FEEL. This may not be YOUR position but YOU are enabling this ungodly agenda to have fuel.
Social Media platforms continue to be used to manipulate the population. A direct threat of murder to those who disagree politically was posted on Twitter. FaceBook is extensively involved in insidious efforts to subvert and destroy our Republic. Yes, there is MUCH about FB that is commendable BUT an evil mission is deliberately embedded. An entire gallon of water can have pure water but a small drop of poison proves fatal to the entire volume!
For years professional security sources have urged people to avoid these platforms. Those posting reveal significant information on every aspect of their lives. The posts are a treasure trove for the unfriendlies. Your name, address, activities, family members, finances, security, EVERYTHING about your life that you consider valuable is exposed. And if not exposed by YOU personally, it is exposed by those linked to you!
Indeed, it is a “social disease” and everyone in contact with you is a point of compromise for your security and the security of your entire family! Photos are rich sources of data mining about your personal security. And the amazing fact is that you eagerly and willingly compromise the security of yourself, your family, your associates! You have willingly provided security details that betray the safety and well-being of your family! This is NOT my personal bias but the repeated warnings of professional security analysts.
By participating in these social media platforms, you provide millions of dollars in revenue that is used to support the sedition undermining our nation.
By participating in these social media platforms, you volunteer to place yourself under the censorship of those dedicated to anarchy. You agree to allow the “censors” to decide what can be used.
This is not my personal opinion. Look at two points brought to light within the past few days…
First, FB has committed to a “censorship” to make sure that which they determine as “hate-speak” is prevented from being published. This hate-speak includes any overtly positive nationalism, “radical” religious tenets (identified as “Christianity”), and political “untruths.” This sounds good. Who would object to a filter that removes hate, lies and division? But YOU are being played! Who are those selected to compromise the FB censorship committee? “18 out of 20 members on Facebook’s fact-checking board have ties to George Soros.” https://gellerreport.com/2020/09/18-out-of-20-members-on-facebooks-fact-checking-board-have-ties-to-george-soros.html/
Second, multiple sources have documented how FB has a subtle campaign to “soften” the American population to accept a prolonged, if not an indefinite, electoral decision. YOU are being played to start thinking that the final results should be allowed weeks or months for certification. YOU are being played to accept the lie that the initial results will be wrong and that Trump is “stealing” the election.
In an incredible interview Mark Zuckerberg tells you this happening and he lays the battle plan out right before your eyes. “Amid election security concerns, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg attempted to normalize the possibility of a delayed outcome of the upcoming presidential election were to occur. This despite the fact that he is not an elected official and holds no government position. ‘One of the things that I think we and other media need to start doing is preparing the American people that there’s nothing illegitimate about this election taking additional days or even weeks to make sure that all of the votes are counted,’ Zuckerberg told “Axios on HBO.” Did you understand the point—YOU are being “normalized”!
FB’s Zuckerberg continued, “In fact, that may be important to make sure that this is an important, legitimate, and fair election.” Administrators will market messaging around this premise “just to make sure people know that’s normal.”
You will probably fuss and cuss me for the above. But you cannot ignore for long the battle plan charted by those deliberately using you. FB, Twitter and other social media platforms pander to the desire of gossip. Remove the “idle talk” and what do you have? You say you do not support such, but by your logging-on and your clicks, you are involved. The damage done to the American culture, civility and conscience by these social network platforms cannot be undone. These allow the most ungodly conversations and communicates acceptance of the greatest immoralities.
These actions are decimating our nation. You may “hide” such comments and such people BUT your continued log-ons and clicks fund and fuel the mechanism that has brought about the current crisis in our nation. You may “hide” the “unwanteds” on your FB page but you cannot hide your support for this evilly designed program.
Think on this—“Aiding and abetting a crime” is a legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets (encourage; support; give material assistance; to join not necessarily in person) in the commission of a crime. It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if they are not the principal offender. In war such is a crime deserving death.
Alarm #4 Sounding
Our national security is currently threatened by different actions. We have been compromised (as Owens ably notes above) by the fear mongers of the “scamdemic.” These are hypocritically “protecting your freedom and health” while subtly restricting your personal freedoms and limiting your individual choices! Adding further chaos is the racial unrest that erupted by the design of the BLM/ANTIFA/DEMS/Liberals/Progressives. Everything that clashes with the Progressive Dem agenda is labeled “racist.” BUT the Progressives are the biggest racists in our culture. They accuse the Christians of being “fascists” but the protestors epitomize fascism! Consider this maneuver by the University of Michigan (Tuesday September 8, 2020):
https://archive.is/qkIzq “The University of Michigan-Dearborn hosted racially segregated events on Tuesday, one for ‘Non-POC,’ and the other for ‘BIPOC’ (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) students. During the two racially segregated ‘cafes,’ the groups were encouraged to ‘discuss their experience as students on campus.’
“‘The Non-POC (People Of Color) Cafe is a space for students that do not identify as persons of color to gather and to discuss their experience as students on campus and as non-POC in the world,’ read the event description on the university’s website. Although the university has since pulled the relevant pages off their website, archives of the information pages exist.
“‘Feel free to drop in and discuss your experiences as non-persons of color and hopefully brainstorm solutions to common issues within the non-POC community,’ added the description.”
THIS IS WHERE YOU WERE ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2020…
Your nation is NOT in an enviable position. Your nation is precariously perched on a precipice. Have you seriously considered that YOU are unwittingly contributing to this decline? I do not want to hear you protest about the censorship, decline and inevitable criminality of practicing the Christian religion if you sit idly while your country is hijacked and you simply proceed “aiding and abetting” this calamity.
In the 1930’s Germany was being manipulated by the Fascist National Socialist politicians. Their takeover of the German nation was incremental, almost imperceptible. Little-by-little Germany was infected by a malignancy that eventually led to multiple millions dying. An early supporter of the National Socialist was Martin Niemöller. He embraced the politics and was played by the manipulators. Too late he realized his mistake and decided not to cooperate with the manipulators. He left behind this confession: “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Ancient Judah was precariously perched on the precipice of national existence. God revealed the truth and the machinations of the Evil destroying the nation. The message sent to the nation was simple, “Consider yourselves warned, Judah!”
Historically there is not an encouraging ending to such a national warning. What did Judah do when warned that she was about to be removed? There was an element within the national leaders who refused to listen and the general population followed this “mainstream” urging. The tragedy of the nation’s demise and erasure of existence was announced, “the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?” (Jeremiah 5:31).
Let this calamitous refrain play over and over in your mind; let it prick your conscience, “My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?”
This is where YOU were on September 11, 2020…“But what will you do at the end” of the election? Where will YOU be November 4, 2020?

Socialism’s barbs have sunk deep into the heart of America’s soul. We see the Titanic struggle as Democrats and Republicans jointly hamper Trump’s attempts to return choices to the people. Washington will never willingly stop its progressive control, but we can make them.
As one who has studied the progressive/socialist movement from the Congressional halls to small communities across the country, I believe we have a rich opportunity to adopt an explosive method to defeat the anti-Constitutional forces in America.
For years, Constitutionalists have joined marches, attended meetings, written articles, and built networks. Through speeches, seminars and videos we have exposed regionalists for grabbing local authority, sustainable development for driving up housing costs, and federal regulations for usurping local land use and zoning laws. Experts in education, climate science, and Constitutional law have bared how our federal agencies and court system are turning the land of the free into regions of the fettered.
Despite successes, every week reveals the incessant ‘tick-tock’ of the socialist advance.
In September 2016, the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority used taxpayers’ money to reduce the monthly rents to $75 for HUD residents who visit relatives overseas for up to 3 months. The agency felt it was unfair that East Africans should have to face fiancial hardship to take an international trip most working Americans may never be able to afford.
In 2014, an affordable housing developer proposed building low-cost housing in a closed Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania warehouse. When the voters and officials rejected the plan for zoning reasons, the developer contacted HUD who sued Whitehall. By December 2016, Whitehall agreed to change their zoning laws, operate under a court-appointed monitor, and pay the developer $375,000 for costs including “out of pocket expenses.”
In a socialist society, the government defines ‘fair’ and votes become a minor nuisance.
The progressive movement in America has advanced so far that in 2016, the unelected Thrive Regional Partnership consisting of 16 counties in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama, urged their faked regional community to take “inspiration” from the works of Parag Khanna. Khanna is a global strategist who preaches that nations must merge into connected regions overseen by direct technocracy. He advocates that the American Democracy of our Founding Fathers, (he apparently does not realize the U.S. is a Constitutional Republic,) is “crumbling” and must be replaced by a technocratic intelligentsia.
Khanna’s technocracy model recommends we eliminate the U.S. Senate and replace the President with a 7-member panel of elite, ivy-league educated experts who are better equipped to make decisions than squabbling elected officials and uninformed citizens. The nation would consist of regions managed by unelected councils. Local community members would merely have an opportunity to offer input. (Think of a regional planning session where all opinions are welcome, but only those that meet the pre-determined outcomes are accepted.)
This Communist nightmare is closer than you think. Regions like San Francisco’s Association of Bay Area Governments and Minneapolis’ Twin Cities Regional Council, routinely force through transit lines, toll roads, complete streets, and housing projects against voter’s wishes.
Along with dozens of other regions, these groups and hundreds of existing Councils of Governments are salivating to turn Khanna’s’ direct technocracy into your future.
President Trump has thrown a monkey wrench into the left’s relentless drive toward a centrally managed nation. He has been immensely successful in re-working bad trade deals, opening industries for growth, and reducing costly federal regulations. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment is the exposure of the vitriol and atrocities of the leftist establishment.
Still, Trump is not enough.
HUD’s 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, handed the progressive movement a legal tool to bludgeon communities into central planning and assault the poor while masquerading as their rescuers. AFFH represents the clearest threat to independence, property rights, and local autonomy in our history.
Yet, HUD’s recent resolution of the AFFH-based Westchester case and the confirmation of Dr. Carson as HUD Secretary have left the rule fully intact.
We must disconnect local communities from federal dependence because it is the lifeblood of socialism. Big government does not help the poor, it feeds on them. Since 1965 the U.S. poverty rate has not wavered from between 11% and 15%, ever! This, despite spending over $20 trillion.
The left needs the poor to be poor. It is the only way they can garner the votes to remain office. Imagine entering an election cycle knowing that 11% – 15% of the people think they need you for they fear they will not eat.
It is not just poverty that propels socialism. The socialist movement eliminated Christianity in government and education because they know what our Founders knew. Only a moral society can be a free society. Without a Christian moral foundation, America devolves into more offenses and violence, which leads to more elitists and tighter state control.
It is time to attack the heart of the progressive beast. The only way to kill the socialist movement is to free the poor, eliminate the demand for federal money and reinstate the church as the center of community life.
A growing society of independent, financially successful, Christian practicing, and capitalist African-Americans and Latinos is the equivalent of an Ebola outbreak inside the haughty progressive political community.
This much-abused base must be realigned with people who have no political axes and no concern other than to help them out of poverty and to share in freedom.
Community programs are already proving that low-income minorities will change their allegiances when they feel the benefits of new opportunities. That is why, in the Spring of 2017 I started the Miss Mary Project. We are a church-based program that teaches working age members of low-income families in urban and suburban areas, not just how to get a job, but how to excel on the job and become indispensable, promotable employees. Rather than help people rise to just above poverty, we help propel them to a lifetimg of success, reducing the need for federal programs.
Our work is based on 30 years of corporate leadership training experience and builds on existing successful programs for the poor. The Miss Mary Project has been so well-received that we are already opening publicly supported centers in Chattanooga, TN and Greenville, SC with plans to go nationwide.
We can defeat socialism, but not through reactionary and survivalist methods. We must once again make the church the center of our community life and engage in and support positive local programs that truly help people become financially independent and free of government.
Dennis Prager, founder of the conservative PragerU, conservative talk show host, made an excellent observation regarding socialism while on Fox & Friends this past Tuesday. He was there to advertise the newest instalment of his 5-part popular commentary series on the Torah.
He noted that the founders were distrustful of human nature, and that therefore one’s personal liberty is best secured when as little control as possible is placed in the hands of leaders. Socialism, on the other hand, by definition, entrusts tremendous power over the lives of others in the hands of a very few. The contrast could not be more stark. Let’s explore it a little.
Distrust of Human Nature
The founders were optimistic about human nature, but they were realistic as well. Alexander Hamilton expressed the optimism, but at the same time the realistic view of human nature. “There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism” (The Famer Refuted, Feb. 23, 1775).
But it was James Madison, the father of the Constitution, that succinctly explained in Federalist No. 55 why limited government oversight was necessary:
As there is a degree of depravity in mankind which requires a certain degree of circumspection and distrust: So there are other qualities in human nature, which justify a certain portion of esteem and confidence. Republican government presupposes the existence of these qualities in a higher degree than any other form.
George Washington expressed the same sentiment in a letter to John Jay in 1786. “We must take human nature as we find it, perfection falls not to the share of mortals.”
Again, Madison outlined in Federalist No. 51 the importance of checks and balances in a government by viewing human nature.
Ambition must be made to counteract ambition. The interest of the man, must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government. What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections of human nature?
The sole theme of the Constitution is to protect people from the concentration of power in the hands of a few government officials.
Illustrative of this skepticism of human nature to aggrandize power in the hands of the few is Article II, sec. 2 which pertains to the Electoral Vote of the states. The states considered collectively are the Electoral College. “Each state shall appoint …a number of electors equal to the whole number of senators and representatives to which the state may be entitled.”
However, the founders added this caveat: “but no senator or representative, or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.”
What is the meaning of this negative note? “All human history … has demonstrated that concentrated government power is the greatest threat to individual freedom and states rights.” (1)
“Protecting the electoral system from conquest and occupation by the agencies of the federal government was the purpose of this provision.”
In other words, the only manner in which mankind could achieve happiness and liberty was by self-government. And this can only be gained by maintaining a system of limited government. But limited government would be surrendered if those in power could manipulate the system in their favor.
Consider the contrast with socialism, by which we mean redistribution of wealth in the pursuit of so-called “equality.” The National Association of Scholars (NAS) defines “social justice”—socialism in a new dress—as “Advocacy of more egalitarian access to income, through state-sponsored redistribution.”
But what does this demand? In order to accomplish any state-sponsored redistribution, the state must be invested with more control over the lives of its members. This demands massive government power—power at the top.
Max Eastman, an elitist American in Woodrow Wilson’s time who became infatuated with socialism and actually traveled to the Soviet Union to learn how to implement it, later recanted. Would that our modern-day socialists of the Democratic Party would be as honest as Eastman.
Eastman’s book, Lectures in the Failure of Socialism, contains this definition of socialism: “A state apparatus which plans and runs the business of the country must have the authority of a business executive. And that is the authority to tell all those active in the business where to go and what to do, and if they are insubordinate, put them out.” It is all about power. Continuity of control.

At the root level, it amounts to the relinquishing of our sacred rights into the hands of the few at the top whom we have entrusted with gigantic levers of authority over our lives. Senator Bernie Sanders, for example, presses for socialized healthcare. What is that? This is to say that he wants the entire healthcare industry to become a government-run monopoly financed entirely by taxes.
How opposite the founders! It all begins with a wrong view of human nature as modern progressives consistently hold. This is the legacy of the so-called Progressive Era—a skewed, unrealistic view of mankind. A refusal to recognize that man’s problem is sin, not lack of material possessions. (2)This is the evil of socialism.
And to pretend that we have a “Constitutional Crisis” on hand because Attorney General William Barr refuses to break the law and hand over federally-protected testimony to raging Democrats in the House boggles the mind.
There is a Constitutional Crisis in America—has been for over 100 years. It is the complete disregarding of constitutional barriers that forbids the federal government from intruding into the private lives of citizens via the tax code, welfare, government housing, education, health care, and a thousand and one other items. The Democrats are simply trying to lock evil socialism into place by the healthcare proposals of “Medicaid for all.”
(2) The Bible is emphatic, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 6:23).“God saw that the wickedness of man was great … and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was on evil continually” (Gen. 6:5). This is why the founders did not trust their freedoms, liberties, and rights into the hands of a few elitists.
In Mexico, and in Mexican communities in places such as Los Angeles, there’s a lively movement of prayer to Santa Muerte, Saint Death. You pray to her for protection from the dangers of the night, in the conviction that she can protect you from attack, accident, and violent death. She can also bring trouble to someone who has attacked you unjustly. Prayer to Santa Muerte goes back to the religious life of people in the area before the gospel came to the Americas. (1)
Our modern era is supposed to be a bold new age that has cast off its need for God and the supernatural. According to modernists who signed the Humanist Manifesto’s I & II and the Humanist Manifesto 2000 mankind has outgrown its need for “God.” In reality, however, modernists who reject God eventually opt for the false religious ideas of man—the “god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4).
By the “god of this age” the apostle Paul, who penned 2 Corinthians, referred to “all the floating mass of thoughts, opinions, maxims, speculations, hopes, impulses, aims, aspirations at any time current in the world.” (2) These are precisely what are lauded by today’s cultural leaders.
A recent Pew Research study found that a large and growing percentage of Americans believe in reincarnation, astrology, psychics, and the presence of spirits in nature. The shock comes, however, in that not only do 6 in 10 Americans accept these beliefs, but that the numbers are the same among those who are self-professed Christians. Even agnostics have adopted occult ideas.
According to a new research by Trinity College in Connecticut, Wicca is one of the fastest-growing religions in the country. Between 1990 and 2008, it saw a forty-fold increase in the number of adherents. One-and-a-half million Americans now identify as either Wiccan or Pagan. As The Christian Post put it, “Wicca functions as a spiritual patina on progressive politics.” The occult is becoming mainstream in America. Such is a culture that continues to reject God.
Multiculturalism is not simply the recognition that there are various cultures in the world, or even represented in the United States. According to Charles Tesconi at the College of Education at the University of Vermont, multiculturalism specifically views “all value systems as equal.” The multicultural view treats all diverse groups and ways of life as equally “legitimate.”“Moral diversity” is the idea. This multicultural perspective therefore de-values biblical concepts as no more valid than any pagan or heathen belief. This is what is integrated into nearly all areas of public education and entertainment. “Diversity” is the watchword.
An example is the recent Disney movie Coco, a beautifully animated film that celebrates the Mexican tradition known as Dia de Muertos(Day of the Dead). Dia de Muertos has its roots in a “pre-Hispanic commemoration of deceased loved ones that is practiced by some Latin American indigenous populations” (Smithsonian.com). The film “draws its cultural inspiration from several Mexican variations of this tradition, which also happen to be those most commonly found in the United States.”
In the story-line, Miguel, a young boy is transported to the place of the dead in order to speak with his deceased ancestors. Cynthia Vidaurri, the writer of Smithsonian’s review, then asks:
So here is the big question: Did Disney Pixar get it right? My first response is to ask another question, ‘Right by whose standard?’ Are we talking about the indigenous traditions of celebrating ancestors as they were practiced before the arrival of the Europeans? … What about the Day of the Dead that merged with Roman Catholic practices after the arrival of the Europeans in the Americans? What about the Mexican national celebration? What about the Day of the Dead tradition introduced to the U.S. by Mexican Americans during the Chicano Movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s? Or maybe the Day of the Dead Traditions that are practices by recently immigrated Indigenous Latino populations in the U.S.?
The Smithsonian plainly challenges the cultural norm that was once common-stock in America—Christianity. Right by whose standard? There is no ultimate standard to multiculturalists. This is what we are being constantly fed, from the entertainment industry to the schoolhouse where “diversity” reigns. Little wonder that various forms of superstition such as Wicca, occultism, and prayers to Santa Muerte are being practiced. Remove the One True God from the culture and everything else becomes fashionable.
Many of Isaiah’s day (8 centuries B.C. in Israel) felt the same way. Turning away from God, however, they turned to superstition. Isaiah, the inspired prophet of God, relates that they sought spiritual guidance from “familiar spirits” and “wizards.” Some of these “chirped” and “muttered” out their instructions. Others among the Israelites assumed that dead people had access to information that was normally inaccessible to the living. They therefore sought to contact “dead people” in Sheol, especially their relatives to get guidance for the future or advice about coping with the crisis at hand—the threats from foreign nations (Isaiah 8:19).
Isaiah “bursts out” against all such occult practices that seek guidance from anything but God. “To the law and to the testimony!—if they will not speak according to His Word, there is no dawn of morning for them!” (8:20). Our culture condemns itself to the night from which there is no morning—if we do not seek spiritual guidance only from God.

Socialists Are Really Digressives, Not Progressives –“God’s system is not only productive, but is moral and right.”
Leftist miseducation during the past century has mislabeled “socialism” as “progressivism” to make it more palatable to consumers. In point of fact the Socialist Progressive Movement in American history, which textbooks date from about 1890 to 1920, radically expanded the size of government. This, we are told, that it might become “more efficient” in caring for the lives of citizens. This set our nation on a course toward totalitarianism in which some candidates for political office are even toying with limiting the size of families by government fiat. Ironically, socialism, which is the rage today in the Democrat Party, has dropped the “progressive” label. But it was never progressive at all–but a digression to the failed experiments of the past.
William Bradford was the first governor of the Plymouth Bay Colony, taking office in the beleaguered outpost in April, 1621. He had been a signatory of the Mayflower Compact a month before the Pilgrims landed in December, 1620.
Part of the text of that Compact reads,
Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and the Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honor of King and Country, a voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern parts of Virginia…solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a Civil Body Politic, for our better ordering and preservation …
Though honoring God in their declaration, neither Bradford nor the rest of the Pilgrims came to a full realization of the ungodliness of a socialistic system until they tried it to a miserable failure.
As first set up, the Colony set up a system of rationing from a common storehouse to which they labored to contribute their produce from the field. But, as Henry Hazlitt describes it, “a vicious circle seemed to set in. The people complained that they were too weak from a want of food to tend the crops as they should.” After that, though deeply religious, “they took to stealing from one another.” Bradford observed that the general famine that resulted would necessarily continue under those conditions.
Captain John Smith had a similar experience in the Jamestown Colony of Virginia. After the socialistic system was in place, he observed, “When our people were fed out of the common store, and labored jointly together, glad was he that could slip from his labor, or slumber over his task, he cared not how.” Even the most “honest among them” cared little for the increase, “presuming that howsoever the harvest prospered, the general store must maintain them, …”
Complaints Harvested from Socialism
It was not long before the complaints began mounting in Plymouth. Bradford says in his Journal Of Plymouth Plantation,
For the young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children without any recompense. The strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and clothes, than he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice.
Injustice it was! And a failure as well. The problem was seeking to circumvent what God had ordered for the welfare of mankind: “If a man does not work, neither let him eat.” They further expressed their dissatisfaction: “And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, etc. they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could many husbands well brook it.”
Unjust. Slavery. Failure. Pretty well sums up our own complaints from the middle class who are now forcibly enrolled in America to serve the poor.
Bradford tells us how the Pilgrims lighted on the remedy. The colonists,
Began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery. At length [in 1623], after much debate of things, the Governor (with the advice of the chiefest among them) gave way that they should set corn every man for his own particular [for himself and his family], and in that regard trust to themselves … And so assigned to every family a parcel of land …
The result of allowing God’s order of things to preside was remarkable.
This had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little ones with them to set corn, which before alleged weakness and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.
God’s system is not only productive, but is moral and right. To the extent that America has become a socialist nation of redistribution is the extent of our trouble and misery.
More to the point, however, is the fact that the Democrats do not represent progress by championing the Karl Marx philosophies of confiscation and redistribution—they represent digression. Whether by means of ObamaCare; Section 8 housing, food stamps, disability payments and a host of other handout programs–all of them are doomed not only to failure—but to make America miserable again. Real PROGRESS is moving ahead to freedom and unshackling the machinery of government regulation from the producers in our great nation.
American Division, Class Struggle and the Progressive Income Tax – “What has happened to us? Why has partisan animosity replaced thoughtful discussion and debate?”
America is arguably more divided now than ever in its history. Cleavages exist between races; whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, American Indians; between political parties, Democrat versus Republican; between classes rich and poor, middle class supporting the welfare class.We are daily fed a diet of radical divides between the police and minority communities; even variances between Californians, some of which are ready to splinter off and form their own state and others who are prepared to join Mexico again. Multiculturalists in the universities commonly celebrate foreign cultures while denigrating Americanism. The states are becoming even more balkanized than during the Civil War in which north and south soldiers still respected each other on the battlefield.
What has happened to us? Why has partisan animosity replaced thoughtful discussion and debate? Why is it that everyone who differs from me becomes either a xenophobe, homophobe, Islamaphobe, or some other phobe? Besides the obvious fact that our culture has retreated from God–which lies at the heart of our division–is the “class struggle” sponsored by Marxist philosophy. Deep wedges are being driven into our once-peaceful culture.
Anti-communist researcher James D. Bales wrote, “Class struggle is such an essential part of the Marxian philosophy that one cannot abandon it without abandoning Marxism.” A summary of Karl Marx’s views indicates that a class is made up of a group of individuals who sustain the same relationship to the ownership or the non-ownership of the means of production. The two basic classes are those who own the means of production and distribution (the bourgeois) and those who do not (proletariat).
Friedrich Engels, Marx’s partner in crime, explained that the great lever to effect social change is to divide society along “political, religious, philosophical or some other ideological” class. In this way, by driving these wedges, Marx produced the collision in society necessary for socialism. It is without argument that Marx’s class struggle has become tremendously successful in America. But how did these wedges get a foothold among our once united people?
The Income Tax
Granted, many divisions are natural, such as between races. But the primary method of exacerbating these natural divides and creating more class division is the Income Tax. Karl Marx knew this, therefore, after the abolition of private property, Marx’s second plank is: a “heavy, progressive income tax.”
Our founding fathers knew the dangers of progressive taxation as well. They warned against it, even writing into the Constitution: “All duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States” (Art. 1.8). But the so-called “Progressives” (read, socialists), taking their cues from Karl Marx instead of James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, inaugurated the Progressive Income Tax in 1913. America has been in the throes of class struggle ever since.
Twenty years prior to the infamous Income Tax of 1913, as Progressivism began to take hold, Congress had experimented with another income tax (1894) that was designed to tax only the top 2% of wealth holders. The Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional (Burton Fulsom, Founders on Taxation).
Stephen Field, a veteran of 30 years on the Court, was outraged that Congress would pass a bill to tax a small voting bloc and exempt the larger group of voter. At age 77, Field not only repudiated Congress’s actions he also penned a prophecy. A small progressive tax, he predicted, ‘will be but a stepping stone to others, larger and more sweeping, till our political contests will become a war of the poor against the rich.’
This is exactly what occurred. Under the influence of the Progressives at the turn of the last century liberal Republicans and Democrats both crafted bills in Congress designed to “soak the rich.” Conservatives who blocked the unconstitutional idea were labeled as favoring “the part of the rich.”
Class warfare had begun in earnest. Uniform taxation was a thing of the past and along with it equal protection under the law. The government, by nature, now became the aggressor to shake down the little man. By the time of Franklin Roosevelt votes were being bought and sold by means of the IRS code while on the flip side Roosevelt’s opponents were subjected to IRS investigations and continual government harassment.
Elliot Roosevelt, the president’s son, stated in 1975 that “my father may have been the originator of the concept of employing the IRS as a weapon of political retribution.” As Burton Fulsom points out, Elliot added, “each of his successors followed his lead.”
What is the point of this history? Barack Obama’s employment of the IRS to target conservatives while Lois Lerner headed the Exempt Organizations Unit is nothing new. Obama was featured on a major magazine as Roosevelt himself. Now other government agencies, including the entire Justice Department, is being revealed as a partisan player in power politics. Witness the disgrace of James Comey and the leadership of the FBI.
James Madison was right all along. “The spirit of party and faction” would prevail entirely in the United States if Congress could tax one group of citizens and confer benefits on another group. Our social unrest will continue until the Income Tax is repealed.
Liberalism is a brain disease which rewires one’s cognitive functions and reasoning capabilities. Under its umbrella philosophies such as Marxism, Communism, Nazism, and Progressivism flourish. This is startlingly apparent in the aftermath of Orlando which emboldens Presidents and other leftists to leave out the most crucial pieces of the puzzle in analyzing and explaining the terror. Sadly, many on the right are afflicted with the same brain disease as well. What are the most critical puzzle pieces missing which we as a culture have declared off-limits for consideration?
First, refusing to look at the SOURCE material of Islam. It is beyond belief that Americans would continue to be patient with President Obama as he scurries to console—not American citizens who have been targeted for jihad—but members of Omar Mateen’s religious group, Muslims. Obama reassures them that no one is ready to judge them for Mateen’s murders. He must comfort Islam that all is well. By so doing he is warning Americans not to entertain any views that may reflect poorly on Islam.
Quick to take the cue, even conservative pundits rush to judge skeptical Americans who are dubious about Islam itself. “Moderate Muslims” must be our partners, say they. Our first duty seems to be to protect Muslims and their feelings of inclusion into America. The gigantic assumption here is that if the Orlando carnage is Islam, it is only some “radicalized” version of it and not representative of real peaceful Islam. Brain dead liberals expect Americans who can read to be brain dead as well. The real questions are: What did Muhammed himself DO? What did Muhammed himself TEACH in the Koran? In the Hadith? This leads us to the Fountainhead of Islamic teaching: The Koran and The Sura (life of Muhammed).
The prophet of Islam, Muhammed, butchered many more than Omar Mateen shot. He personally oversaw the beheading of thousands. Islam conquered the entire peninsula of Arabia in his lifetime, not because of defensive wars but because of offensive bloody strategems including butchering, raping, pillaging, and instilling fear into surrounding countries. His followers hacked their way across most of Asia and into Europe during the ages succeeding, following Muhammed’s example.
Not only did Muhammed practice what Mateen carried out, but he ordered his followers to do it as well. The last Surah that came from his uninspired lips included this: “Fight and slay pagans wherever you may find them” (Surah 9:5). Another commands Muslims to “behead” their enemies (47:4). Muhammed himself taught and practiced what is styled “radical Islam.” Why do modern-day know-it-all’s in the press continue to discuss Islam with little or no reference to the source of it all—Muhammed?
Another second puzzle piece conspicuously missing from analyzation is this:Leaving unexplained how a Muslim can be “radicalized.” This is all we hear. Mateen became “radicalized;” let’s continue to allow Muslims to come into our country but hope they do not become “radicalized;” we need to watch for “radicalization;” and on and on. Not a single one of these pundits or politicians tell us: Just how is a Muslim radicalized? How specifically doe that occur? Is it by laying aside the Koran and doing something different than what is read? Or, is it by digging deeper and deeper into the Koran and the Sura to imitate the prophet of Islam himself? What exactly is radicalization?
Only one answer is available. By becoming more and more aligned with the heart of the Koran one is radicalized.If not, let President Obama or Hillary Clinton lay out in detail the process of “radicalization” and explain to America just how this happens. But that is something the left will never do. Instead, they will parade before us such horrendous explanations as that Orlando is the result of “too ready access to guns;” or that it is the result of “one person believing he is right and all else are wrong;” or, “Orlando’s occur” when people are “mentally disturbed.”
Missing in the Orlando analyzation: common sense. And common sense is the refusal to begin with the premise that Omar Mateen could not possibly represent what Islam actually teaches.
