I’m speaking to the Ruling Elite…YOU scornfully claim I wear a tinfoil hat and idle the time away in delusional dreaming of imagined political catastrophes. YOU scoff at my concerns and dismiss my patriotism with comic memes. YOU casually prance from day to day as if everyone and everything in this world is at your “beck and call.” YOU utter illegal and absurd mandates and heartedly condemn non-compliance but then you hold yourself aloof from the compliance you demand from others. YOU claim I am obsessed with conspiracies that are unfounded and serve as fodder for insurrectionist protests when in reality it is YOU fomenting the conspiracies. YOUR childish antics are deserving of the playground retaliatory quip: “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks on YOU!” The true conspiratorial insurrectionist is YOU!
The most brutal political practice ever weaponized is the planting, nurturing and then oppression of “conspiracies.” Even though this word “conspiracy” has been publicized by today’s political Elite, it is not novel. From the Beginning of time conspiratorial thoughts have attacked the Rule of Law. In the Garden, the Devil suggested the Forbidden Tree was off-limits because God Almighty wanted to keep mankind different from Deity.
From the Beginning of time conspiracy has been used as a leverage to further the agenda of the Elite so they will gain more power and greater riches. This evil ambition is not confined to any geographical borders, language, ethnic race, or political inclination. Power is possessed and ambitious evil wants more and more; seeking gain through fear, intimidation and false accusations.
In order to frame the purpose of conspiracies we need to ask, “WHO benefits from accusations of conspiratorial theories?” This is a significant but overlooked query.
Conspiracy is an action of a group who strategize an unlawful, harmful, or evil plan. This is formulated in secret. Its intent is for harmful or evil purposes. It is an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act for a given result. It involves planning, coordination, information dissemination and an objective. The term is always used in the strongest negative connotation.
The success of the conspiracists depends upon a sliver of truth wrapped with lies and propagandized to manipulate and achieve the evil objective. The conspiracy is presented with the message that the ones exposing and punishing the conspiracy are acting for the “greater good.” “Who” would dare stand in the way of the “greater good.” Thus, the conspiracists define the “greater good” in a manner furthering their ambition.
A survey of civilization illustrates this evil action; furnished are myriads of examples. Revealed is the Rulers’ tyrannical oppression of the Ruled. Once the Rulers publish their delusional conspiracies, they are justified in punishing those guilty of the imaginary threats.
Perhaps the most recognized example comes from the evil of Fascist Germany (1930). It was through propagandized conspiracies that the German public accepted the mass murder and systematic killing of Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and disabled persons during the Holocaust. These groups were targeted by the Fascists and killed in crematoriums and concentration camps. It was the media publications that manipulated people’s thoughts to develop anti-Semitic, anti-gypsy, anti-homosexual and anti-disabled hysteria. Circulating the conspiratorial rumors, established prejudices and discriminatory practices and encouraged the escalation to an accepted state of violence.
A frightening summary of how political talking-heads used conspiracy to justify the State-sponsored police action is stated in an article titled “Has The World Become Nazi Germany?”
“As a child survivor of the Nazi reign of terror I learned indelible lessons about the nature of evil… Academic science, the military, industry, and clinical medicine were tightly interwoven as they are now. The Nazi system destroyed a social conscience in the name of public health…Nazi propaganda used fear of infectious epidemics to demonize Jews as spreaders of disease, as a menace to public health…Medical mandates today are a major step backward toward a fascist dictatorship and genocide…these undermine our dignity as well as our freedom…The stark lesson of the Holocaust is that whenever doctors join forces with government and deviate from their personal professional clinical commitment to do no harm to the individual, medicine can then be perverted from a healing humanitarian profession to a murderous apparatus…What sets the Holocaust apart from all other mass genocides is the pivotal role played by the medical establishment…Medical doctors and prestigious medical societies and institutions lent the veneer of legitimacy to infanticide, mass murder of civilians.” (Holocaust survivor and medical patients’ rights activist Vera Sharav)
The tyranny of the Rulers oppressing the Ruled by delusions of “conspiracies” is not limited to the past. Our current times are witnessing a similar manipulation. The evil Political Elite seek to numb the population’s awareness by claiming accusations of wrong doing are mere “conspiracies.” It is not uncommon for those questioning the Elite’s agenda to be rebuffed with, “Come on now! You are sounding like some of those crazy Conspiracists!”
Published in HUMAN EVENTS, June 5, 2021 is an excellent analysis by Jim Hanson titled AN INVENTED INSURRECTION: How the left is trying to criminalize conservatism. Hanson’s astute analysis was used a month later in another outstanding analysis by Michael Austin in the Western Journal. Austin’s report was titled: Investigative Report: Dems Are Using ‘Invented Insurrection’ to Create 2nd War on Terror Targeting Americans. Hanson’s conclusion aptly frames the diabolical objective of the Elite Rulers. The Rulers were seeking to tyrannize the subjected Ruled. Hanson states, “The only conspiracy here is by the left to deprive their political opponents of their Constitutional rights.”
The Ruling Elite are being pressed to declare more conspiracy theories because their façade of integrity is crumbling. More are becoming aware and are questioning the tyranny they have gullibly accepted. When the Rulers feel pressed, they strongly react. A greater tyranny, a greater propaganda, a refashioned mission strategy and a greater intolerance will emerge.
This development is currently observed. It is a reality—look at those wrongfully arrested, illegally imprisoned, unconstitutionally beaten, starved, deprived in DC jails following the J6 protests against the State’s illegalities. The Rulers are threatened. Their retaliation is harsh and inhumane designed to “teach a lesson” to others who might think of non-compliance.
On January 13, 2022 Jim Hoft published a shocking article titled: BREAKING: OathKeepers Founder and President Stewart Rhodes Arrested — Charged with Seditious Conspiracy a Year Following Jan. 6 Protests. The desperation of the Ruling Elite is evident. Their media propaganda has miserably failed to deceive the population. The imagined charges of “conspiracy” are intended to stoke fear and compliance. When the Rulers fail to see this response, it acts with a greater hostility. Their power and wealth are slipping; their evil ambition’s appetite is not satisfied. The Rulers are beside themselves not understanding why the Ruled refuse to cower and comply.
If you want to see the extent to which the Rulers are desperately trying to maintain their tyranny over the Ruled, just look at the “conspiracies” they have announced. These are conspiracies are concocted by the delusional mind to justify the tyrannical despotism of Washington POLS and entrenched Bureaucrats. These are desperate to feed their selfish ambitious appetite. They are desperate to cling to power and wealth that are extorted from the citizens of our Republic! Here are just few and you can add to the list:
• Parents are terrorizing school boards
• Concerned citizens are domestic terrorists
• Those questioning the 11/3/20 election are subversives
• Those questioning the CDC/NIH/FDA mandates are insurrectionists
• Those claiming COVID death rates are inflated are “unscientific”
• Those refusing the experimental jab are ignorant hillbillies
Be assured that much more will be written about the “conspiracies” fomented by the evil Rulers to maintain their control over the Ruled. The conspiracies ARE NOT the product of the concerned citizens BUT ARE the product of the evil Rulers seeking to discredit, disparage and decry the integrity of those pursuing the Truth. Look back at the opening paragraph—let the RULING POLS know this fact, YOU bear the blame! Do not excuse or elevate yourself to an aloofness that depreciates another person or group.
One final illustration fittingly portraying the current affairs in our nation’s Capital. Inside the Beltway all seem impervious to the reality of the citizens in the USA. These, inside the Beltway, have assumed an elitist position; they are aloof, insensitive and unconcerned.
Now listen to this…History records the tyranny of a Ruler over the Ruled. This woman was a hated Hag; an ugly old woman, vicious and malicious. She was ungodly and trained her son in evil. Her son was justly executed, and the mother usurped the throne making herself queen. She is forever known as a murderer, even killing her own children so her position would be secured. Inevitably the wheels of justice turned bringing her downfall. The nation returned to the Rule of Law and she was held accountable. When she was being removed and the Law was being restored, she “tore her clothes and cried out, Conspiracy! Conspiracy!” (2 Kings 11:14).
Such reveals a simple truth—those crying “Conspiracy” are the ones who need to be arrested, adjudicated, and punished. This truth is historically validated but scornfully ignored. Again, I ask, in order to frame the purpose of conspiracies we need to ask, “WHO benefits from accusations of conspiratorial theories?” The answer is the Ruling Tyranny benefits because it gives a delusional legitimacy to oppress and punish!

The chronicles of civilization’s governments are the ultimate record of failed recycling. Mankind never learns! The greatest fail is the repetitive recycling of tyranny. Mankind complacently accepts subjection to immoral and evil authorities. The historicity is undeniable. Briefly observe how two historical government fails highlight the current conflict in our Republic (obviously there are many more examples but we only have time for two).
First, consider the majesty of Versailles Palace. This is remarkable in history. The Palace of Versailles, was the French royal residence and center of government, but it transformed into an extravagant complex. A telling fact about this grandiose structure, every detail of its construction was intended to glorify the king. The construction’s focus was on the Ruler. The ruled were ignored; they were viewed as inconsequential.
The Versailles Palace is one of the iconic portraits of the French Revolution. The French Revolution did not just happen in one day. The Revolution was a mixture of political, social and economic upheavals in France. The Palace of Versailles found itself in the middle of this conflict.
The public became agitated over the great governmental waste. The Court enjoyed extravagances while the population starved. Liberal principles removed trade barriers. Bad harvests and increasing prices fueled riots and revolt. Public opinion correctly connected the economic crisis with the monarchy. Consequently, a contempt for Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette fueled the national chaos.
The chaos led to degradation in economic, political and civil environments. On 15 July 1789, the storming of the Bastille panicked Versailles. The courtiers started to abandon the Palace. This beginning trickle soon became a flood and the Palace was emptied of its occupants.
The royal family left Versailles on 6 October 1789. The Palace of Versailles ceased to be a royal residence. It fell into disrepair and eventually was restored as a historical landmark of a failed government.
Second, consider Germany’s Third Reich. The history of this fail is well-known. The “rise and fall” of this government focuses directly upon those who served as its major leaders and the Reichstag members who permitted and approved the governing evils. The government failed because of its evil advocates.
In November 1945 the high-ranking surviving officials of the Third Reich were placed on trial before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg, Germany. Among them were Göring, Ribbentrop, Frank, Rosenberg, Kaltenbrunner, and Hess.
The trial exposed the details and scope of the criminal governing. Accounts of inhumanity were listed; evidences of tyranny’s authority were validated; the bankruptcy of a political arena where dissent was punished was highlighted; the evil of a national governing that denied personal freedoms was a common factor.
Nuremberg established the horrors of a government that believes it can mandate what the citizens believe, speak, reside, travel and behave. Such behaviors were decided to be inhuman and worthy of capitol punishment. No excuse was permitted to justify such evil behavior.
The result of this trial should be sobering to all politicians. On October 1, 1946, 12 of the defendants were sentenced to death, three were acquitted, and the remaining defendants received prison sentences. Göring, committed suicide in his cell, and ten defendants were executed on October 16, 1946. Hess was the last imprisoned Nuremberg defendant to die in 1987.
It was a humiliating end to a government ruled by tyrants. What about the Reichstag congress? What about those “elected” to serve the population? Following the Nazi seizure of power and the Enabling Act of 1933, this “governing body” was only a rubber stamp for the actions of Hitler’s dictatorship. It was useless. It was inept. It was culpable in the fascist tyranny. Those serving in the congress, only furthered the State’s dictatorship. The “Party” always gave unanimous consent — no one dared to vote against the controlling personalities.
History reveals that…a government born from lies, maintained by fear and ruled with opinionated mandates was pure evil. The propaganda that fueled the citizens’ compliance was a manipulative ploy of the politically arrogant. The horrible “science” that funded the use human beings as test subjects, was pure evil manipulated by a heinous man. Every aspect of the Reich’s governing was exposed as pure evil. There was absolutely no justification or rationalization for the government’s actions. Yes such was applauded but it was an abomination!
Now here is the undeniable point to ponder on the “Fall of Versailles”—there is ultimately a punitive justice meted to those who arrogate to themselves an evil tyranny! Justice is coming to those who propagandize, “mandate,” coerce with arrogant authority, who market in human trafficking by medical experimentation, and, who occupy an elected position but remain silently compliant. Justice is coming!
Here is another recycled historical fact. Listen to its echoes throughout the centuries:
• “Wheels of justice grind slow but grind fine” ― Sun Tzu
• “So then, I have seen the wicked buried, those who used to go in and out from the holy place, and they are soon forgotten in the city where they did thus” (Solomon, Ecclesiastes 8:10, The Bible).
• Euripides, one of the greatest tragic writers of ancient Greece (480-406 BC), “Slow but sure moves the might of the gods.”
• Plutarch said, “Thus, I do not see what use there is in those mills of the gods said to grind so late as to render punishment hard to be recognized, and to make wickedness fearless.”
• “Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Perhaps most tragic is the lesson focusing on our Republic. We are ruled by those who have no regard for personal liberty. Who wield the powers of government in a vindictive manner. Who care little about the economic calamities that fuel starvation while they feast on “gourmet” foods, party-hardy and enjoy mansions. Who feign concern for the poor only to the extent where they can personally profit. Who make scurrilous criminal charges against political enemies. Who propagandize lies as “truth.”
Gone are the politicians who actually “serve” the citizenry. Present are those who “serve” themselves. You can observe the behavior and listen to the bitter words of these politicians. Such are well described as “lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power” (2 Timothy 3:2-5).
The tyranny of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette was answered by the guillotine. Destiny condemned the tyranny of Hitler, the elected members of the Reichstag congress, and the Secretaries of the Third Reich.
All politicians, who view themselves as the “Rulers” over the “Ruled,” will face the inescapable recycling “mill of Justice that grinds slowly, but grinds finely.” These will face a wrath from a righteous populace. That wrath is stoked by the politician’s evil deeds and just punishment will be meted by those who have been wronged!
This fate is recycled history. Politicians can claim “misrepresentation.” They can manipulate the thinking of the people by propaganda’s lies. They can shroud themselves in deniability. They can weaponize government resources to punish their critics. But, they will NOT escape! These will find themselves in the recycled garbage heap of civilization’s failed governing. No matter how important they think they are “they are soon forgotten in the city where they did thus”!
To the current Congress of the United States of America…Will you learn and change your course in legislating the affairs of our nation so you will avoid the coming wrath of those you oppressed? Will you continue to view yourselves as the “Rulers” arrogantly tyrannizing those you view as “the Ruled”? Are you aware of the humiliating history that is chronicling your choice?

The fourth Thursday in November is my favorite day of the year. It is “Thanksgiving Day.” Ironically my favorite day of the year follows my least favorite day (Halloween). Thanksgiving Day celebrates the heartfelt and happy acknowledgment that the Almighty God has providentially blessed us. Halloween celebrates all that is evil, selfish and ungodly. These two calendar events frame the constant battle in civilization’s history. I prefer the celebration of good rather than the celebration of evil.
One has well asked, “Why is it that mankind chooses to celebrate thanksgiving to the Almighty only on one day, and focus on gripes, grumbles, and complaints the remaining 364 days?” The answer to this query is an indictment of society—mankind is more concerned with Self than with the Almighty God.
A celebration of Thanksgiving is a high-valued target in today’s ungodly society. Any action, celebration, moral compass, lifestyle choices, etc, that places the Judeo-Christian ethos as the governing parameters, is instantly damned in brutal verbiage. To acknowledge Thanksgiving is to acknowledge the Almighty God. In today’s culture God is not acknowledged—He is erased.
The practical consequence of erasing God is an embracing of socialism. Socialism advocates that the communal thought is the source of all power; the State is the ultimate arbitrator in even the most personal choices. One is thankful to the Sate because God is erased. Such an ungodly position ultimately leads to blind submission: “The State knows better how to spend the private citizen’s money than the private citizens.” Or, “The State knows better what your children need to learn.” Or, “The State knows better how to raise your children—it takes a village to raise a child because parents cannot raise their own children!” This is a power struggle—the power of evil seeks to erase the power of good.
However, there is a major problem in the socialistic erasure of the Almighty God. The prophet summarizes this issue as he describes the socio-religious conditions of his day, “There is oath-taking, denial, murder, stealing, and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore, the land mourns, and everyone who lives in it languishes along with the animals of the field and the birds of the sky, and even the fish of the sea disappear.” And what is the cause of this catastrophic environment. “For there is no faithfulness, nor loyalty, nor knowledge of God in the land” (Hosea 4:1-3).
Please do not miss the obvious truth! The failure to be thankful to the Almighty God impacts every aspect of man’s civilization and environment. Even the “ecosystem” is destroyed by the unthankful attitude toward the Almighty God! Do you want to cure the ecosystem’s disintegration (climate change or global warming or whatever it is termed today)? Then foster a thankful attitude toward the Almighty God. Do you want to cure the criminal cancers destroying civility? Then cultivate a knowledge that will cause you to be thankful to the Almighty God. Then cultivate a knowledge that leads to a thankful attitude. It is a simple fix. But this simple fix is fought “tooth-and-nail” by the unthankful heart.
The conscience and strength of our nation is being dismantled brick by brick. The deconstruction of our nation has already removed much of our heritage that made us a world power. The heroes have been painted as the villains and the personalities that have fueled hate and instigated anger are memorialized as “saints” and recently even as the Christ!
Reliance on God’s providence was a hallmark of the early colonists but is a never taught historical fact in our schools. God’s providence is a blasphemous belief according to our politically correct speech. God’s providence is a faded memory in the minds of older Americans. The Judeo-Christian foundation of our morality, governing, and freedoms are being attacked and removed piece by piece. We have lost so much of our national conscience that Hosea’s characterization of his society reads like today’s news briefs.
Our nation has long been in an ideological war. Many dismissed the surrender of freedoms and the encroaching governmental “mandates” as inconsequential. But, ideas have consequences. When ungodly, uncivil ideas are permitted unrestricted advocacy, they become a cancer that metastases and brings ruin to every part of society.
Our national day of “Thanksgiving” brings an uncomfortable focus to this war. Two striking points are considered as illustrative of those intent on dismantling our great Republic who attack Thanksgiving Day.
First there is an effort to rewrite history so the Pilgrim’s first Thanksgiving becomes a myth. Illustrating this are a number of articles from those claiming to have “discovered the truth” regarding the Thanksgiving Holiday celebrated in the USA.
Our educational centers are teaching the “inventing” of Thanksgiving. The holiday is purported to be founded upon a legend. Here is one of many such propaganda pieces deconstructing our national heritage, revising our history and contorting truth. All is an effort to erase the Almighty God and encourage the State’s surrender to socialism.
“The legend of the American Thanksgiving holiday is said to have been based on a feast of thanksgiving in the early days of the American colonies almost 400 years ago. The tale as it is told in grade schools is a legend, a mythologized version that downplays some of the bleaker history of how Thanksgiving became an American national holiday…The holiday continued…not with a feast and family, but rather with rowdy drunken men who went door to door begging for treats. That’s how many of the original American holidays were celebrated: Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Day, Washington’s birthday, the 4th of July…By the mid-18th century, the rowdy behavior had become a carnivalesque misrule that was closer to what we think of as Halloween or Mardi Gras today. An established mummer’s parade made up of cross-dressing men, known as the Fantasticals, began by the 1780s: it was considered a more acceptable behavior than the drunken rowdiness. It could be said that these two institutions are still part of Thanksgiving Day celebrations: rowdy men (Thanksgiving Day football games, established in 1876), and elaborate mummer parades (Macy’s Parade, established in 1924).”
In stark contrast to the idiocy of the revisionist’s attempts to rewrite facts regarding documented facts, we note this historical account: “In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies…In September 1620, a small ship called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, carrying 102 passengers—an assortment of religious separatists seeking a new home where they could freely practice their faith…Only half of the Mayflower’s original passengers and crew lived to see their first New England spring. In March, the remaining settlers moved ashore, where they received an astonishing visit from a member of the Abenaki tribe who greeted them in English. Several days later, he returned with another Native American, Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe…Squanto taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate corn, extract sap from maple trees, catch fish in the rivers and avoid poisonous plants. He also helped the settlers forge an alliance with the Wampanoag, a local tribe, which would endure for more than 50 years…In November 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest proved successful, Governor William Bradford organized a celebratory feast and invited a group of the fledgling colony’s Native American allies, including the Wampanoag chief Massasoit. Now remembered as American’s “first Thanksgiving.”
Much of what we know about what happened at the first Thanksgiving comes from Pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow, who wrote: “Our harvest being gotten in…we might after a special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered the fruits of our labors…many of the Indians coming amongst us, and amongst the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted…And although it be not always so plentiful, as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want.”
The second point focuses upon how the real Thanksgiving Day celebration demolishes the socialistic onslaught of our free entrepreneurial economy. This point is often eclipsed by the feast shared between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans, but it should be strongly emphasized today.
The first Thanksgiving exposes socialism as bereft of any value culturally, morally, civically, economically, and religiously! Any way one looks at socialism it is worthless—except to the elite who become richer and more aloof!
Let me suggest that you read several articles published in Forbes Magazine by Jerry Bowyer. Bowyer’s discussion on the real significance of Thanksgiving is rarely heard. His opening sentences read: “It’s wrong to say that American was founded by capitalists. In fact, America was founded by socialists who had the humility to learn from their initial mistakes and embrace freedom.”
Bowyer, in another article, exposes the emptiness of socialism’s promises. Socialism never produces abundance, energy, expansion, and improvements. As Bowyer notes, “I explained that the first Thanksgiving was a celebration of abundance after a period of socialism and starvation…Their Thanksgiving celebrated the triumph of the individual, private property, and incentive, over collectivism…For them, God, not Plato, knew best. Accepting the principles of private property and self-interest was God’s way of harnessing self-interest to the greater good. We know all of this because an elder and Governor of the Plymouth plantation, William Bradford, kept a journal and it survives today.”
I appreciate such insight!
Thanksgiving Day is exceptional in many ways but these two points add emphasis to the reality of such a day celebrated in history and its requisite to a national ideology that succeeds by a bold individualism and a contained and controlled central governing!
The Bible says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12). Perhaps we should add the thought “and whose citizenry remains thankful for the divine blessings.” The Bible says in Deuteronomy 28 that if we honor and obey God, we will enjoy blessings. If a nation dishonors and disobeys Him, it will reap curses (as Hosea observed).
I well remember the truisms once stressed by our political leaders: “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” And, “Once a nation removes God from its conscience, it becomes a god-less nation.”
This is the reality and requisite of our Thanksgiving Day!

As I write, tens of thousands of Haitians are encamped under a bridge in Del Rio, TX. The numbers of these invaders increases so rapidly that I avoid putting a number on the thousands that are there, knowing that by the time this article is posted it will have swelled further. At the invitation of the Biden Administration they have trespassed into our nation, expecting more unconstitutional distribution of American taxpayer funding.
Last month more than 200,000 people crossed into the United States illegally. Taxpayers are funding the re-location of these invaders, ala the Biden Administration. Predictably, many of these are disease-carrying that threaten our citizens. “What’s coming over into the US could harm everyone,” a Texas Border Patrol agent warns. “We are starting to see scabies, chicken pox, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, and different viruses.” There are now credible reports of leprosy among the crowds and TB is growing globally.
But it matters not. The borders are wide open to the world under Joe Biden and obviously, these immigrants are not masked and do not have the COVID shots. No, these are the draconian measures the Democrats want American citizens to observe.
This is suffering to the American citizen on a number of fronts—by means of law—or lawmakers who ignore the law.
Marxist-oriented Democratic-supported Black Lives Matter has left a number of American cities in smoldering ruins from the 600-plus violent riots last year. This was a government-sponsored “protest” that included members of Congress. Huge corporations such as Airbnb, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Reddit, Snap, Amazon, Gatorade, Nabisco, and many others also donated huge chunks of cash to the anti-American cause.
Political leaders such as VP Kamala Harris even assisted in bailing out the rioters and violence-mongers so that they can loot some more. Concurrently, a huge movement to Defund the Police has gripped major cities such as Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Seattle. This is sponsored, once again, by the Majority Party in Washington, D.C.
That all of this is one-sided, consider the following.
Across the aisle, there is an Iron Muzzle on the “J6” (January 6) Trump-supporting protestors from earlier this year. These were treated differently. Not only did the Capitol Police invite many people into the building and many of those people wandered through peacefully and left again, causing minimal damage, but there is reason to believe that many of the people attending the rally on January 6 were provocateurs, whether from the FBI or Antifa or BLM, “intentionally trying to destroy conservatives.” Some of these are held or have been charged on no more grounds than that of “parading” on Capitol grounds.
Psalm 94: The God of Redress
In the face of a clear multi-tiered justice system in America, tilted to favor radicals and liberals, Psalm 94 speaks of the helpless victims of such corruption. “There is a sense in which they are by definition powerless and helpless.” The psalmist complains about eminent, powerful, important people—because they are faithless (v 2-3). Their faithlessness expresses itself in the way they treat ordinary people—ignoring the real needs of its citizens, while seeking to muzzle conservative opposition. How long with the faithless exult, Yahweh, … they crush your people, Yahweh, they put down your very own (v. 4-5).
The psalmist calls these governing officials “brutes” (v. 8). The question is asked of these, “When will you show some insight?!” Though it does not look like the “brutes” that run our country will come to reality any time soon, the comforting thought is that God notices! (v. 9-15).
God is the one who “disciplines nations” (v. 10). He does “not forsake his people, He does not abandon His very own” (v. 14). Political leaders “are stupid to make [the] assumption about Yahweh’s lack of interest in what is going on in the world.” He will not ignore the situation. Sometimes, however, it may look differently “in the short term” though oppression of the godly will not last in the long run. Authority will eventually “return to its proper basis”—God-given liberties. And then people will be able to “support the government rather than protesting it.”
The highlight comes at v. 20. Can the throne that brings destruction [unjust governments] ally with You [God]? Someone who creates suffering by means of law? That is, frequently, governments themselves, instead of enforcing law to protect its citizens, actually “create suffering” by their unjust laws. This causes in us “anxiety” (v. 19)—but God is our Rock of Refuge (v. 22). God will settle it all.
“You can change the course of your life with your words.”
“The invisible hand of language change (structurally-motivated change) can create an environment for change, which is then helped along by a certain social group adopting that change, and using it as a social marker.”
Language is one of the most critical elements of civilization. Language defines the mores that restrict civil boundaries and enables peaceable existence. Language is an incredible art that can define heroism and instill resolve but can also instigate hatred and insurrection.
The American language has been hijacked, manipulated, tortured and twisted to support perversion of basic civilities and morality. Our language has become “plastic” in today’s upside-down culture. Previous vocabulary is now used to communicate the opposite concepts than in the past. The ancient prophet reveals this is not a modern phenomenon. “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!” (Isaiah).
Historical anecdotes abound showing how a twisted language misdirected, misled and manipulated a population to unimagined actions. A manipulated language has led many nations to a destructive cycle. The troubling consequences of a national vocabulary that leads to deprivation, manipulation and erasure is aptly stated, “My people have exchanged their glory for that which is of no benefit” (Jeremiah).
Illustrating this tragedy…
I grew up in the heyday of the Russian propaganda machine. There were two major sources of Russian State approved news. There was “Pravda” (Правда, which means “Truth”—hence the subtle message was that only those in the State could tell you the “truth”). The other publication was “Izvestia” (Известия, meaning “The News”—only the approved State releases presents the real news). A number of other publications attempted to publish, but the totalitarian Marxist censors quickly isolated and terminated these sources because they threatened the State’s control. In that era, America was incensed that such blatant censorship was practiced and urged political forces to address and punish such inhumanity. And at times we were on the precipice of WWIII.
Those involved in analyzing the USSR’s evil, found Pravada and Izvestia very informative as a means of mining discovery of the Soviet tyranny, activity and influence. The Soviet media language was crafted to frame the State as the total source of truth and all opposition as anarchists and troublers.
The sobering reality that we face today is, the manipulation of language did not did die with the dissolution of the USSR. This is present in our epoch on the timeline of civilization. This manipulation of language is a historical constant. The action has existed from the beginning of time (Genesis 3) and will continue until the end of time (Revelation 13:11).
Evil is relentless in manipulating mankind with a twisted vocabulary that directs populations into paths that surrender their personal freedom.
This is why “freedom of speech” was a foremost concern of our Founding Fathers. However, this priority has become subservient in the agenda of the Elite Rulers in our nation. Two examples highlight this subtle attack upon our freedom. My focus is on two of the CDC’s edicts that are being viewed as binding legislative rules.
The first manipulation of free speech—MASKING. The futility of this has been discussed often but the modern editors of Pravada USA and Izvestia USA have decided the opposition must be silenced. Masking (aka “face diapers”) has been opposed with TRUE science for at least the past 12 months. New studies have only verified that the CDC/NIH mandates are useless regarding the COVID-19 virus. But the CDC has released a new advisory update on masking at schools of 2021. “Updated to recommend universal indoor masking for all students, staff, teachers, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.”
Welcome to Pravada USA and Izvestia USA where TRUE science is cursed and the “new” scientific method is embraced—conclusion and warnings can be issued with the cavalier whim of the Director…no lengthy studies, no verifiable test group, no consistent results. All is decided in a state of flux. “Science,” in the COVID19 environment, is unstable and its counsel is undependable. The BEST that CDC/NIH offers are generally phrased comments: “regardless of vaccination status,” “a negative may not be a true negative and a positive may not be a true positive”! Now citizens are told to have absolute, unquestioned confidence that these people know what they are doing—a manipulative vocabulary! And so, we are told “up is down and down is up” and we are not to question this!
The second manipulation of free speech is the CDC’s “proper-speak.” The CDC Director has arrogantly published an update on “Preferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities.” The Gateway Pundit highlighted this egregious mandate. This is an astonishing manipulation of our language. It redefines and perverts basic the language vocabulary that we have used for centuries. This is the Postmodern “doublespeak” used by Progressives to destroy our Republic’s foundations.
This is a blatant attack on our culture, civility and morality. It embraces an inclusive vocabulary that tolerates everything except exceptionalism!
This is a plagiarized ploy straight out of the Engles/Marx playbook. These “tolerant despicables” theorized that “class distinction” is the inherent evil that has prevent mankind’s true happiness. They presented a scheme to destroy current civility and then, from the debris, build a better civilization of equity and fairness. You should remember this from your Ninth Grade Civics classes!
This is an overreach by the CDC that seeks to instill and validate Marxist mandates in the USA. Look at how the CDC has assumed the role of totalitarianism. The CDC has placed itself as the foremost economic authority (forbidding evictions), and as the only authority regarding the insidious and tyrannical COVID-19 mandates. And now, the CDC has assumed the august position of “Language Police”!Never before in the history of our Republic has a bureaucratic office wielded such unchallenged totalitarianism—NEVER! And…the Legislative and Executive Branches have cowered before this organization and only recently has the Judicial Branch appeared to challenge this unconstitutional action by ruling in regard to the CDC’s eviction ban.
An interesting article Illustrating Engles/Marxist manipulation of language is found in the June 20, July 4, and August 2, 1950 issues of Pravda, Marxism and Problems of Linguistics, by J.V. Stalin (Foreign Languages Publishing House, Moscow). The Marxist objective is to use the current language but subtly manipulate it so old meanings are destroyed as it morphs into a new meaning. By changing the language, one compromises those opposed and speaking out against the Marxist “classless dream.”
J.V. Stalin’s article (written in 1950 during the peak of Soviet Power) provides insight to the Marxist cunningto destroy the old cultural/political mores and introduce the new fundamental, inclusive mores. The author comments,
“(T)he Russian language has remained basically what it was before the October Revolution. What has changed in the Russian language in this period? To a certain extent the vocabulary of the Russian language has changed, in the sense that it has been replenished with a considerable number of new words and expressions, which have arisen in connection with the rise of the new socialist production…a number of words and expressions have changed their meaning, have acquired a new signification…(language) becomes an exceedingly active force, actively assisting its base to take shape and consolidate itself, and doing its utmost to help the new system to finish off and eliminate the old base and the old classes.
“What can be the necessity for a linguistic revolution, if it has been demonstrated that the existing language and its structure are fundamentally quite suited to the needs of the new system? The old superstructure can and should be destroyed and replaced by a new one in the course of a few years, in order to give free scope for the development of the productive forces of society; but how can an existing language be destroyed and a new one built in its place in the course of a few years without causing anarchy in social life and without creating the threat of the disintegration of society? Who but a Don Quixote could set himself such a task?”
Please do not allow the metaphorical reference to “Don Quixote” to be ignored as a comment on the delusional pursuit of Marxist seeking a “fundamental transformation” in the USA. Such an imaginative delusion leads not to the elusive utopian joy but to national disaster and destruction. Notice: This is only “an imagined delusion” IF the population is vigilant of the language manipulation! IF the population remains compliant and does nothing, then the “fundamental transformation” is successful.
This is where we are today…
Welcome to Pravada USA and Izvestia USA! The MSM sources arrogantly announce they have the “balanced truth,” the “total reporting,” and the “accurate analysis” of the news that Americans must read. Those opposed to the State’s version of truth and news are ignored, castigated, demonetized, blocked, banned, and litigated by a perverted justice. With such a manipulation of history once again the announcement is repeated, “Truth has stumbled in the streets.”
Perhaps the saddest point of this analysis is the impact this has upon the nation’s children. They are being schooled by this manipulative vocabulary. They are being conditioned to accept the surrender of personal freedom. They are being trained to cower before tyranny’s mandates.
This is history redux…an ancient nation surrendered prestige and freedom thinking they were benefitting. But they lost their distinctiveness. A prominent feature of any national demise is its compromised vocabulary. “As for their children, half spoke in the language of Ashdod, and none of them knew how to speak the language of Judah, but only the language of his own people.”
It is tragic that many of our population no longer know the vocabulary of our nation’s great documents and have accepted a linguistic manipulation. It is amazing that many now believe that “up is down and down is up.”
We are in a tragic historical cycle—fear rules because truth has stumbled in the streets!

Did you hear the NFL is planning to play the “Black National Anthem” before each football game? This is the most bizarre, insulting, idiotic, ignorant, offensive and most importantly- RACIST- decision in the history of sports.
First of all, I didn’t even know there was a “Black National Anthem?” Did you? Silly me, I actually thought we were all Americans. I thought the one and only American National Anthem was called the “Star Spangled Banner.” I thought that one national anthem brought together Americans of all colors, races, sexes, religions, cultures.
I was clearly wrong.
A national anthem for only one race of people sure sounds insulting, offensive and racist to me. I’m glad it’s not my race promoting such a divisive and intolerant idea.
But as long as the NFL is playing this insulting game…
I’m Jewish and I feel left out. I’m insulted. It’s downright intolerant to leave my people out. Where is the diversity and inclusion in the NFL?
Is the NFL creating a caste system? Is the NFL saying blacks are superior to Jews? More important than Jews? More important than any other race or culture?
I can’t be the only one feeling left out. Why isn’t the NFL playing a White National Anthem? Or Hispanic National Anthem? How about Christians, Muslims and Hindus? How about my friends who are Italian-American, Irish-American, Polish-American and Asian American? Don’t they all deserve recognition before NFL games?
A recent NFL TV ad campaign reported “The NFL is gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender.” So, where are their national anthems before games?
Have I left anyone out?
This is insanity. The pathetic, woke and politically correct NFL appears to be rooting for the breakup and tribalization of the USA. Will teams someday be based not on the city or state they’re in, but from the gang, tribe, race, or religion they represent?
Should we have NFL battles between the Polish-Americans and the Italian-Americans? The Jews vs the Christians?
Or here’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser- how about an NFL championship game between whites and blacks. I’m betting that would sell out in 15 minutes, with seats selling for a small fortune.
Personally, I’m hoping for the NFL championship game between the San Francisco Gays vs. the New York Transgenders. I can’t wait to see the cheerleaders!
Don’t laugh. That’s exactly what all of this progressive racist madness is leading to.
Why not start games with 100 national anthems? Let’s just have a 3-hour pregame ceremony with flags and anthems for every group, race and sex in America. Like the opening ceremony of the Olympics before each NFL game.
And you thought Covid produced empty stadiums?
P.S. While you’re busy adding a Jewish National Anthem to every pregame show, it might be time for the NFL to address a burning “social justice” issue. Where are all the Jewish wide receivers? And Jewish running backs? And Jewish quarterbacks?
It’s finally time to address this “civil rights issue of the 21st century.” Why aren’t there more Jews in the NFL? I think we need the NFL to step up. We need a “Jewish Lottery.” It’s time for affirmative action. Because my Jewish people are not being represented in the NFL. It’s time for diversity, inclusion and social justice. I want Morris Bernstein at wide receiver.
By the way, here’s another controversy the NFL just created. I’ll bet the NFL never thought of this one. How will black players feel when white fans who are angry, offended and insulted by this racist decision, respond to the “Black National Anthem” by KNEELING?
Now that should make pregames interesting.
Great job! The geniuses running the NFL just turned their games into angry, bitter, divided, emotional war zones.
Despotism has…common behavioral traits…a common cause for its biased violence…a common use of fearmongering for its targeted population.
A historical review of despotism
Hitler had his ghettos. Hitler’s forces systematically identified those who were a “threat” to society; those who presented a health risk; those who science defined as subhuman. The Germans established at least 1,143 ghettos in the eastern occupied countries. All the “undesirables,” those “uncooperative and, those “inferior” were herded into these ghettos and terrorized.
Stalin had his Gulags/Death Camps. Stalin’ infamous purges in 1936 identified millions of political prisoners. These were arrested and transported to the gulags without trial. That political terror appeared in waves. The first wave of prisoners were military and government officials; next, the intellectuals who questioned the State’s policy (doctors, writers, artists, and scientists) and, last the ordinary citizens. All were arrested ex nihilo—no substantiated crimes as all were imagined. In Stalin’s camps those who were identified as threats to society were amassed. Many were executed or died from overwork and malnutrition. Historians estimate that as part of the gulag, authorities imprisoned or executed about 25 million people.
Mao advanced his totalitarian reign through his “re-education camps.” Amnesty International describes these as: The authorities label the camps as centres for “transformation-through-education” but most people refer to them simply as “re-education camps.” Those sent to such camps are not put on trial, have no access to lawyers or right to challenge the decision. Individuals could be left to languish in detention for months, as it is the authorities who decide when an individual has been “transformed.”
Pol Pot utilized a “door-to-door” campaign to forcibly relocate the urban population to the countryside to work on collective farms to create his despotic utopian agrarian socialists society. It was in the name of complete egalitarianism, money was abolished and all citizens were made to wear the same black clothing.
These are just four of the many instances that history has redundantly recorded. Time after time despotic administrations of State governing have demonstrated a tyranny that is inhumane. Under each of these despotic administrations the nation they terrorized developed into a one-party governing; a legacy of genocide; and a failed history.
BUT no one considers history!
And now for modern America…
As a nation we stand precipitously on the cusp of total tyranny…You will not have freedom to move around; you will not be allowed to associate with family, friends, children and grandchildren; you will not have freedom to work or shop for food. You will be confined and restricted to specific locations.
If you have forgotten the tyrants of civilization cited above, please re-read the facts and grasp the situation that led to and allowed these “camps” to round-up and “quarantine” those the State deemed as a “threat” to the population.
For those of you who say, “It cannot happen in the USA,” let me remind you of Edmund Burke’s quip, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”
IF the State determines that YOU and YOUR behavior is a “threat to the population,” THEN the State can propagandize your incarceration. And, the State’s charges do not have to be valid. They only have to be believed. THIS IS A HISTORICAL FACT! Review the Warsaw Ghetto and remember how the population was controlled to accept abominable conclusions about fellow humans!
Pay attention to the myriads being marched out with the “get vaccinated” messaging. The population is being prepared for stronger measures that will force vaccinations. The messaging is using FALSE Science and fear mongering as controls for the people’s minds.
Pay attention to the fact that there are door-to-door canvassers making a list of those uncooperative and non-compliant regarding the “experimental vaccine”!
Pay attention to the increased messaging that those who refuse to be “jabbed” are becoming a threat to the general population.
Tuesday night (13 July 2021), CNN’s “OutFront” host Erin Burnett spoke with Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. Sebelius said Americans who refuse the experimental coronavirus vaccine ought to have limited mobility and participation in society. Sebelius encouraged private businesses to force their employees to receive the experimental shots.
Do you see shadows of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, et al?
Pay attention to the obvious hypocrisy…Covid-19 “vaccines” are so effective that Sebelius is afraid that she, a vaccinated woman, might somehow “catch” the virus from an unvaccinated person. So she wants extreme limitations on the movements and freedoms of those unvaccinated!
Sebelius “explains” that vaccine injections do not protect those who receive them unless everyone around them is also injected (but there is omitted that we are told that in groups where ALL were vaccinated there is still infection possible!). Consequently, Sebelius believes that those who refuse the jab should have their rights taken away by the government.
“I think it’s time to say to those folks, ‘It’s fine if you don’t choose to get vaccinated. You may not come to work. You may not have access to a situation where you are going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy, where you might kill them, where you might put them in a situation where they are going to carry the vaccine, the virus to someone in a high-risk position.’”
Sebelius uses doublespeak regarding “freedom.” She says that “freedom” means Americans’ constitutional rights are voided the moment people start to feel fearful that they might contract germs from someone who refused to have their DNA permanently altered with mRNA spike proteins dispensed out of a syringe. And so, “freedom” becomes ONLY what the elite defines for themselves! This exposes the total selfishness of this tyranny.
To help her feel safer, Sebelius wants people, who reject the jab, to be controlled by the government. Their moving about freely must be restricted. She would prefer that the unvaccinated stay in a separate location so that the vaccinated can go out in public and never have to encounter someone who has not received an injection.
“I want to be able to live my life with vaccination, and right now I’m being impinged on by people who say, ‘I don’t want to get vaccinated.’ It’s fine, but I want them to maybe have a limitation on where they can go and who they can possibly infect.”
Listen carefully to her words: “So I think we’re reaching that point in the United States where those of us who are vaccinated, I want to take off my mask. I want to be able to live my life with vaccination, and right now, I’m being impinged on by people who say I don’t want to get vaccinated. It’s fine. I want them to maybe have a limitation on where they can go and who they can possibly infect.”
Here is where we are…
There is a clear tyranny unfolding before our eyes. This has undeniable historical precedent in its origin, development, its inevitable terror and its eventual ruin. All are induced to yield to fear instead of facts. “Science” is once again in the hands of the Puppet Masters and is used to “convince” the general population what is “best.” (Research how Hitler’s evil used “science” in its relentless terror.)
I refuse fear. I accept facts. One has sent me this appropriate acronym for FEAR:
“Fear” is false evidence appearing real! This appropriately frames the current campaign for tyranny to usurp our Republic!

Members of Congress are seeking to renew the unconstitutional Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that the Deep State is using to further entangle the United States into sovereignty-eroding trade agreements.
TPA, also known as “Fast Track,” is legislation that limits Congress’s ability to negotiate and review trade agreements, ceding its authority to the president. Specifically, once the president transmits the agreements to Congress, the relevant House and Senate committees have 45 days to vote on any trade agreements — and failing that, those agreements would be automatically reported out. Both chambers would then have 15 days to hold floor votes with limited debate. Under TPA, Congress is prohibited from amending or filibustering the agreements.
TPA is not new. Congress first enacted it in 1974, and it has been intermittently in force to the present, being most recently renewed in 2015. TPA is set to expire on July 1, 2021, but globalist members of Congress are pushing to renew it.
Interestingly, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) rejected an attempt to add TPA to a major China-related bill. However, he reportedly did this to ensure TPA passes Congress later this year, along with forcing Republicans to work with the Democrats.
There are multiple reasons why TPA is dangerous and must be rejected. First, it is unconstitutional. Article I, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution declares that “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” However, TPA usurps this legislative power, transferring it to the executive branch — something the Constitution does not allow.
Additionally, Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 gives Congress the authority to “regulate Commerce with foreign Nations.” By requiring Congress to merely rubber-stamp trade agreements negotiated by the president, TPA unconstitutionally delegates Congress’s trade authority.
Furthermore, Article II, Section 2, requires all treaties to be ratified by two thirds of the Senate. By their very nature, modern trade agreements are treaties. This is seen in the broad scope of many trade agreements that affect domestic policies, with the USMCA being a recent example. However, under TPA, only simple majorities in both houses of Congress are required for ratification. This is unconstitutional and trivializes the approval process of consequential international treaties.
Globalist Trade Agenda
Additionally, TPA is a key element of the globalist “free trade” agenda that seeks to strip the United States of its national sovereignty and independence — and by extension, the God-given freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution.
The term “free trade” is a misnomer when applied to the various modern agreements. Being hundreds of pages long and creating new regulations and bureaucratic entities on the international level, they are not “free.” Furthermore, such agreements affect much more than the simple flow of goods from one country to another.
The U.S. has entered into multiple trade agreements, including the WTO, NAFTA, and the USMCA. Globalists are also pushing the U.S. to enter the CPTPP and a proposed trade agreement with the European Union. All of these agreements have eroded — or will erode — U.S. sovereignty by ceding power to international tribunals and by economically and politically integrating with other countries, thus limiting Congress’s freedom of action.
TPA makes it significantly easier for the Deep State to ratify such agreements. In addition to circumventing the two-thirds Senate requirement for ratifying treaties, the expedited approval process allows for agreements — negotiated in secret and hundreds of pages long — to receive very little scrutiny and with no chance for revisions.
Multiple other reasons exist for opposing TPA, including increasing trade deficits, encouraging currency manipulation, and increasing migration levels. Ultimately, however, TPA is part of the globalist scheme to merge the U.S. into a one-world government through foreign entanglements. Although a Trade Promotion Authority bill has not been introduced in Congress yet in 2021, such a bill is expected to be introduced in the near future.
Congress would be wise to reject this unconstitutional and globalist TPA scheme. Instead, its members should defend U.S. national sovereignty and economic self-sufficiency.

Identity Politics in the 1930s pushed a racist ideology saying that Jews were “parasitic vermin” worthy only of eradication. Identity Politics 2021 pushes a racist ideology stating white people need to be eradicated.”
Wherever you are on the spectrum of fact or fantasy in our culture, some answer to the perplexity is deserved.
A bird’s-eye survey of our current situation reveals a struggle, decades in time, between two incompatible positions—there is neither compromise nor appeasement that will reconcile these two positions. These two positions are either Freedom or Fascism. The conflict ends only when one is terminated.
The current cultural conflict focuses on transforming the foundation of the American culture. Our nation’s greatness grew from the fact that diverse nationalities came together and formed a union in America’s “melting pot.” As each person came into America he was assimilated into the core fabric of our national culture—there was a shared language, dress, moral ethos, work ethic, and dreams. This “melting pot” led to America’s greatness because it focused on the priorities of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by the individual. These objectives were couched by a firm belief in the rule and reign of the Almighty God in the citizenry and the fact that maintaining these objectives was the responsibility of each individual citizen.
The success of the American system became the envy of the world (and it is still the envy of the world as myriads march to enter our nation however, in February I was in Eastern Europe and was asked, “Things in America have changed in the last years and it is not as it once was. Right?”). The formula for our nation’s success was impracticable in Europe, Central America, Asia, or any other location. These were steeped in a governing that denied the individual and thus prevented the key factor for success found only in the New World. These governments saw the success of America but refused to reform and provide the environment necessary. This refusal ignited resentment against the culture that made the USA so unique.
There were a number of historical forces attacking the national foundations that made the USA the envy of the world. Among the many historical attacks, I believe three are most significant.
Atheism arose and challenged the Judeo-Christian foundation. Communism arose challenging the American work ethic. Socialism arose challenging the individual’s responsibility for success or failure. With each of these attacks the foundation that gave the USA strength and success was compromised. Slowly the governing system, judicial system, educational system, religious structures, and civil fabric were transformed. The “melting pot” ceased assimilating and the national unity was fractured. Lost were the uniting factors of language, dress, morality and religious core that had highlighted America’s “melting pot” union.
Worldwide conflicts marked the century’s change from the 1800s into the 1900s. This paradigm shift created havoc as the settled certainties of civilization were attacked. The anarchy spawned by the godless French Revolution, metastasized worldwide. The turn of the century was marked by anarchists in religion (repudiation of God), governments (repudiation of governing systems) and education (repudiation of reason and exaltation of “expressionism”).
Unlike other nations in chaos during this time, the USA was initially insulated from a major invasion of these anarchist threats. But history shows that these malignancies eventually invaded and corrupted our Republic. A number of sociological phenomena combined and changed the basic core values that had made America a great nation.
Eventually a spirit of anarchy ignited and attacked the judicial, educational, and religious systems and the moral fabric was compromised. The “counter-culture revolution” was aptly named—it stood for the opposite of every law, value and ethnos that had made America great. Entertainment united to shock America’s modesty and shame her morality. The boast of “freedom” was corrupted to advocate actions, beliefs and morality that were shameful.
The elevation of bigoted education and false science to an idolatrous level spurred on the compromises in morality and religion. Consequently our national conscience was desensitized.
The counter-culture of the 1960s graduated into academia. Scorn became the customary tone for morality and religion while “personal freedom” was presented as the only true virtue. The message was that any restriction on personal freedom was contrary to the American way (the sexual revolution and drug use became the vanguards pushing this new freedom). The visibility of this frightening fruit of a warped freedom is today shouted by the anarchistic mobs, “Whose streets? Our streets!” The Rule of Law has been replaced by personal anarchy! Academia became the final voice of authority in this revolution. And, the educators were unquestioned even though their positions hid behind invalid accusations.
In 2018 David Horowitz accurately chronicled the devastation of academia upon the American culture:
“Since the seventies, the radical movement had been establishing a political base in the universities, purging conservative faculty and texts, and transforming scholarly disciplines into political training programs. These leftist indoctrination programs are referred to as ‘oppression studies,’ ‘social justice studies,’ ‘feminist studies,’ ‘whiteness studies,’ and the like.” (Dark Agenda, 124)
This malignant educational process erased the singular concept that made America great—it vanquished the fact that individuals are personally responsible. Personal responsibility was replaced by teaching that values regarding good and bad are determined only by group identity! Basically, this says that one’s entire person (beliefs; values; self-worth; significance; etc) is determined ONLY by the group with which he is identified. IF one is identified with a particular group THEN that one is valued only by what that group identifies! The concept of individual merit is cursed. You cease to be an individual. If you are identified as a part of a group then it does not matter if you agree with the group or not.
The irony of this madness is seen in how the leftist’s “identity politics” boomerangs! A number of articles have reported on how identity of “whiteness” precludes support and identifying with “blackness.” Perhaps the most well know of these is the former Spokane, Washington NAACP President Rachel Dolezal who admitted in 2015 that she is white, despite publicly claiming to be black for years. “I acknowledge that I was biologically born white to white parents, but I identify as black.” Regardless of the personal choice, the personal choice is denied by the Leftist “identity politics.” Sorry Rachel Dolezal but your individuality to “identify as black” is rejected by your identity politics! You are assigned to a group and regardless if your personal actions and attitudes, you must accept this assignment!
When personal choice and individual responsibility are replaced by group/identity, the very foundation upon which America was made great is destroyed!
When one removes the individual and focuses only on the group, evil quickly follows. Such is illustrated by the fascists in Hitler’s Germany. Individually the Jewish person ceased to exist. All that existed was a “group” labeled by a racist ideology saying that Jews were “parasitic vermin” worthy only of eradication. The “Identity Politic” of fascist Germany was pure evil!
It is evil to assign carte blanc damnation to an entire group based upon the identity of that group! But the Leftist academia and politicians have energetically embraced such evil and have been permitted to practice an arrogant racism in the USA! They have been applauded for such actions and EVEN rewarded by corporate businesses that reward anyone in a certain group and ignore other groups.
A recent article in the Daily Wire illustrates the deplorable depth to which “identity politics” has taken academia. Chrissy Clark observes, “A Virginia public school district’s equity lead sent out a graphic claiming that Christians are privileged and women, children, and people over the age of 50 experience ‘oppression.’ Lottie Spurlock, the equity director for Loudoun County Public School District — one of the most affluent school districts in the nation — passed out a graphic that used immutable characteristics to divide people into two groups — oppressed and privileged.”
According to Clark’s article here are the two groups into which modern America is to be placed:
These are identified as the “privileged”:
20-50 Year Olds
Owning/Middle- or High-Income Background
College Educated or Parents College Educated
Not Adopted or Foster Child
English as a Primary Language
“Average” or “Thin” (referencing weight)
Lighter Complexioned People of the Same Race
These are identified as the “oppressed”:
People of Color
50 Years and Older
Working Class/Lower Income Background
Not College Educated or Parents Not College Educated
Single Parent or Raised by a Single Parent
Adopted or Foster Child
English as a Second Language
Darker Complexioned People of the Same Race
We are where we are today because the individual has been replaced with group identity. The individual’s personal responsibility has been replaced with group victimization (this victimization rationalizes and excuses incivility). The concepts of individual life, liberty, and happiness have been replaced with group autonomy. The individual’s duty to think and reason has been replaced by group think.
In Columbia, Missouri, on October 30, 2008, Barack Obama stated, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Lottie Spurlock’s equity directive for the Loudoun County Public School would certainly applaud Obama’s words.
The reality of the Leftist “Identity Politics” is illustrated by a troubling article describing how a candidate for student government at Stanford University posted racist threats, including “white people need to be eradicated,” then apparently deleted the account when caught. This is the same identity politic that the Fascists in Hitler’s Germany used to torture and murder millions who were not “useful” for their evil ways.
Historically proven is the fact that eventually the favored “group” is exposed and is held accountable for its evil upon the other “groups” it sought to “eradicate.” “Justice” is blind and holds scales that are eventually balanced.
The United States of America has been fundamentally transformed because the Fascists of the Left have removed personal responsibility and cast all into group identity. Today certain “groups” are applauded as they burn and destroy BUT other “groups” are arrested, harassed as they gather in large numbers and voice concerns. The “peaceable” group utilizes arson, intimidation, calls for violence and stir a manipulative fear. The “domestic terrorist” group utilizes mass gatherings without conflict, no intimidation, and no violence.
Things today have definitely been “fundamentally transformed.” And, it does not take a crystal ball to see that no matter how bad things are now, they will devolve to an even greater decadency unless justice is meted and evil is punished.
