What Goes Around Comes Around, Democrats: And If You Had Any Decency Or Wisdom, You’d Already Have Learned That By Now

February 8, 2017

How are Democrats fascist?  Let me count the ways:

During the campaign we had violent Democrat Brownshirt-style thugs (and see herewith ties to both Obama and to Obama’s White House and to Hillary Clinton (and see here and here) physically attacking and beating Republicans who came to a free-speech rally to support the candidate that our Constitution enshrines as their right.  Not that Democrats have any more respect for the Constitution than roaches have for it.  Democrats then literally violently rioted, with more than 200 people charged with RIOTING in Washington D.C. on inauguration day because Donald Trump was elected president and butthurt Democrats didn’t like it.  You had Democrats saying they didn’t regard President Trump as “legitimate” and seventy elected Democrats – well over a third of their number in the House – refused to acknowledge the peaceful transfer of power and instead boycotted the inauguration.  Then Democrats took the unprecedented and incredibly childish step of boycotting hearings – refusing to show up and do their damn jobs – as a butthurt tactic to prevent government from functioning when they used to tell us that anything that kept government from functioning was “terrorist.”  We had leftist women who wanted to murder their own children and who rabidly hated Donald Trump march on Washington the very next day.  We’ve had vicious riots in cities and in universities such as leftist Berkeley where Democrats – and pardon me for just calling them rabidly intolerant fascists because that’s exactly what they are – couldn’t handle the right of someone to speak who thought differently from the Stalinists who violently screamed him down.

And Democrats are rabidly, hatefully, viciously boycotting ANY business that believes it has any freedom of speech or the right to creativity whatsoever: not only if you support Donald Trump, but if you simply don’t adequately demonize Donald Trump, Democrats will start hatefully boycotting you and trying to take American workers’ jobs away from them by shutting down or for that matter burning down the business that hired them.  So just the other day we had a brand new “firestorm” of hate and vicious, treasonous job-destruction in the form of a boycott of Under Armour because the CEO likes the business climate he’s seeing.

And ANY business that is like the vast majority of investors – pushing the DOW to historic highs never before seen during Obama’s regime – who appreciates a good business climate will be the target of rabid leftist hate.  The employees of those businesses, their families, their children, will all be the targets of rabid leftist hate.

This is vindictively in-American, anti-American, fascist.  Until the time when the Elizabeth Warrens and the Barack Obamas took over the Democrat Party, we could agree to disagree and the best business model at the best price won.  But there is a spirit of hate that basically says “Death to America!” and that spirit is the spirit of the Democrat Party today.

Three weeks after Trump was sworn in – you know, as fascists also known as “Democrats” rioted – the shrinking Democrat Senate has done everything possible in its fascist collectivist butthurt to do everything imaginable and unimaginable to stall Trump’s cabinet  from being allowed to take office and do their jobs in a manner that can only be described as “historic.”  Among the recent vile Democrat Party tactics, far leftist darling Elizabeth Warren – a dishonest woman who falsely claimed that she was an American Indian in order to falsely receive benefits from her false status – violated forever all pretense of Senate decorum that allows respectful debate by launching a firestorm of hate invective until she was rightly shut the hell up.  She tried to attack a sitting Senator by reading a letter in spite of a rule that reads:

Rule 19 states the following: “No Senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator.”

It’s a pretty crystal-clear rule.  Don’t talk ugly about your fellow Senator so we can keep a collegial climate and work together.  And yes, you fake, dishonest Pocahontas, the rule even applies when the hateful words impugning the motive of a Senator come from somebody with the last name of “King” who wrote a fundraising letter for the DNC.  It frankly doesn’t MATTER who wrote the damn letter, you cannot read it on the Senate floor if it “directly or indirectly” ascribes any motive or conduct unworthy of a Senator.  Which that fundraising letter from that leftist widow very clearly does.

The Senate has that rule unless we instead want to have fistfights and chairs thrown on the Senate floor like the socialist banana republics that we sometimes see on TV.  I’ve got an idea: why not have Republicans read from the Bible proving that everything Democrats do is godless and vile and wicked and an abomination and a detestable act and that Democrats are demanding the full wrath of God on this nation?  Did Republicans do that when they were destroyed by Obama’s victory?  No.  Did they EVER do ANY of the above?  No.

Amazingly, Democrats depict themselves as the “victims” of “intolerance” and “hate” when they are by far and away THE most hateful bugs in America today.

And so, amazingly, fake Pocahontas is now a “victim” because she tried to viciously attack the character of somebody else in a manner that ought to have her disbarred from the Senate and mean meanies who don’t want the Senate to degenerate into total chaos and anarchy stopped her from doing it.

Democrats in the Senate and in the House DO want the Senate floor to become a fight pit.  And I can state that as a categorical fact simply because that is precisely what they have intentionally “fundamentally transformed” America into through their community organizing tactics to unleash demonstration after demonstration, boycott after boycott, riot after riot.

I’ve pointed out more than once that I actually PREDICTED the rise of a candidate like Donald Trump and accurately explained the reasons why there would be so much anger in response to the truly fascist Barack Obama presidency:

Obama’s strategy is to set aside and flatly ignore the law for his own political benefit.  Every American who is not deeply troubled by that – troubled enough to not vote for this fascist – is UN-American.

What Obama has done is provide an example of out-and-out lawlessness on the part of the president of the United States.  And when we get a hard-core right wing president the way Obama has been a hard-core left wing president, Obama and the Democrat Party and all of those who voted for Obama and the Democrat Party will be entirely to blame for that president and his extremist actions.  You mark my words.  Because what goes around comes around, and if a Democrat can set aside the law the way Obama has now repeatedly done, well, guess who’s going to be stomping on your necks under your own president’s prior justification???  Conservatives are rising up in a spirit of righteous outrage.  You have repeatedly slapped us in the face through your messiah Obama, and the time is coming when we’re going to punch you hard in the nose and then keep on punching.  And when that day comes, liberals, look to yourselves for blame.My words on June 18, 2012

Don’t blame anyone but YOURSELVES and YOUR OWN DEMOCRATIC PARTY for the rise of Donald Trump, Democrats.  YOU did this.  YOU poisoned the well.  You ALONE and NO ONE BUT YOU.

We do we have President Trump?  Because you fascists allowed a fascist to act like a damn fascist for eight miserable years.  And people like me kept warning people like you that there would be CONSEQUENCES for what you were doing.  And then people like me promised you how you would get yours for what you had done before this election that was so damn surprising to you.

You should have learned that what comes around, goes around, fascists.  But you clearly didn’t.

Now you’re hanging yourselves on your own damn petards over and over and over again.  Such as when you fascists who illegitimately call yourselves “Democrats” as if you give one flying DAMN about “democracy” imposed the nuclear option to shove whatever the hell you fascists wanted down our throats.

The Senate is now firmly in Republican hands (after disgraceful Democrats were caught being evil maybe a million times too often).  But when Democrats owned the Senate, they shoved their crap right down the Republicans’ throats and changed the damn Senate rules to do it with a process that was so toxic to the Constitution that it was called “the nuclear option.”

On November 21, 2013, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared that “unbelievable, unprecedented obstruction” by Republican filibusters had made the confirmation process “completely unworkable.”[1] As a result, he said, Democrats were forced to eliminate virtually all nomination filibusters. […]

For nearly all of its history, proceeding to a final vote on a matter before the Senate required a supermajority.

The nuclear option is every bit as good for the goose as it is for the gander, demon-possessed ones.

And so guess who gets to use it now?

There are consequences for what you did.  There OUGHT to be consequences for what you did.

You should have learned that what comes around goes around, you fascists.

Oh, there’s more than that, such as prominent Democrats in our society dreaming out loud of bombing the [Trump] White House and calling for a military coup.  I actually remember when Democrats literally called Republicans “terrorists” because we didn’t vote the way Democrats wanted them to vote.

Here’s what Hillary Clinton said about Republicans daring to do anything whatsoever when Obama was president and Democrats held the House and Senate:

“We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people.”

They called us “terrorists” a whole bunch of times when it’s ridiculously easy to prove we didn’t do a tiny FRACTION of what they are doing now.  Now we start to see what actual “terrorists” really look like: just look in a damn mirror, Democrat.

And only now do I get to our judges: read the actual text of the law that Donald Trump lawfully and legally acted upon:

Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Oh, and there’s this:

Here is the pertinent law, Title 8, Chapter 12, US Code 1182, courtesy of Cornell University Law’s website:

(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.

Now how hard is that to understand?

It’s not just that the law is on Trump’s side; IT’S THAT THE LAW IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY ON TRUMP’S SIDE.

And so we have the most leftist District Court in the United States now deciding whether to uphold the injunction who are acting NOT AS JUDGES but as political ideologues imposing their own political agenda and calling it “the law.”  This law has been around since my 80 year-old parents were teen-agers.  Obama invoked this identical same policy with Iraqi refugees and again only recently to do to Cuban refugees – and did hypocrite Democrats riot with ‘Stop the hate’ signs THEN? – what Trump wants to temporarily do to seven countries that the Obama administration itself identified as having the most out-of-control and impossible-to-vet status of all countries on earth.

Is this a “Muslim ban” as our leftist newspapers and media keep claiming?  According even to the Trump-haters, fully 85% of all Muslims can freely come into the United States because the vast majority of Muslims on planet earth do not live in those seven countries.

The “judge” that imposed his stay on the Trump policy was FACTUALLY WRONG about the most major element of his ruling: not that Democrats give one flying damn about the fact that they are factually wrong and full of lies.

WASHINGTON — “The federal judge who halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban was wrong in stating that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump’s order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Just last October, an Iraqi refugee living in Texas pleaded guilty to attempting to provide support to the Islamic State group, accused of taking tactical training and wanting to blow himself up in an act of martyrdom. In November, a Somali refugee injured 11 in a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University, and he surely would have been arrested had he not been killed by an officer.”

You moral roaches have NO RIGHT to do what your judges are doing.  In Arizona we settled that, like it or not, it is the President of the United States who gets to determine the shape of our immigration system.  the only difference there was that Arizona was actually only calling on Obama to enforce the laws of the United States and Obama was refusing to do so; here Donald Trump is lawfully using the authority that the laws of the United States give him.  But the same Democrats who told us that immigration was up to the President now say the opposite.

Lawyer and journalist Gregg Jarrett says that the law is very clearly entirely on Trump’s side and that ultimately Trump will prevail as this reaches a court capable of voting on the actual merits of the law rather than imposing their rabid judicial ideology onto the law rather than any legitimate interpretation of the law, the separation of powers, or the Constitution that these liberal judges falsely and deceitfully took an oath to uphold.

I am so beyond sick of this two-standards approach to the Constitution and to “judges”: when Obama imposed his ObamaCare, Justice Roberts literally re-wrote the damn ObamaCare law to make it “constitutional,” steadfastly and studiously ignoring what Obama had actually said prior to the passage of the law that clearly made it rabidly UNconstitutional.  And now we have these leftist pseudo-judges doing the precise-damn-OPPOSITE and citing campaign rhetoric that has virtually NOTHING to do with the actual policy that Trump imposed as president as the grounds for striking down the commander-in-chief.

What I am saying here is what Justice Antonin Scalia warned a leftist pseudo-intellectual once:

He added that the role of a Supreme Court justice should be interpreting the law, not inventing it.
“Whether it’s good or bad is not my job. My job is simply to say if those things you find desirable are contained in the Constitution,” he said.
Discussing pro-abortion judges who created a right to abortion, Scalia warned her, “Someday, you’re going to get a very conservative Supreme Court and regret that approach.”

You are about to get precisely what Scalia warned you about, Democrat.  You are about to get the hell you have tried to impose on us for DECADES now: right wing judges who read their own intent into the law without giving a flying damn what our Constitution says or what our founding fathers meant when they said it.  You are going to get judges whose reasoning process is “I’m a judge, and therefore whatever the hell I want to do must be the law.”  And they’re going to impose “law” on you the way you “living, breathing document” ideologues imposed pseudo “law” on US regardless of what the law or the Constitution actually was.

If YOU get to play games with the Constitution and impose your policy as law, then WE get to play games with the Constitution and impose OUR policy as “law.”  And if YOU are allowed to nominate judges who will “interpret” the law however the hell they want to, then WE get to nominate judges who will interpret the law however the hell THEY want to.

You’re going to be hung on your own petards.  Because what comes around ultimately goes around, you fascists.

The equivalent of what the left has done by allowing “judges” to hold a “living, breathing document” view of the Constitution that enables them to read their own “penumbras and emanations” into the law and impose their political goals and policy agendas as if they were “constitutional” is this: suppose we have a football game, and my side gets to use fully automatic assault weapons against your side.  You use your football skills and I’ll use my weapons and let’s play ball and see who wins.  If we win, we get a reprieve from fascist judicial activism; if you win you get to impose your rabid ideology upon us as if it were “the law.”

I noted an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times today talking about how both sides engage in hypocrisy.  And that’s true, much the way it is true that during World War II both sides engaged in killing.  But one side was so over the top evil with killing that it was dishonest to create a false moral equivalence; and in the same way one side (the Democrats) are so over the top HYPOCRITE that it is immoral to say that both sides do it.  The editorial itself – hypocritically entitled “Beyond hypocrisy” in the print edition – is a pile of leftist drivel and from my point of view isn’t worth reading because the author focuses on the evils of the right while steadfastly refusing to acknowledge his ideology’s own role in creating “nihilism” that he is so fearful of.  But it does come to a conclusion that I as a last days, evangelical, Bible-believing fundamentalist Christian, completely affirm: we’re heading toward total nihilism as a nation and that will guarantee our bitter, painful end.

Let me explain what is going on right now, as we speak: we cannot possibly endure as a society or a civilization because there are these people called “Democrats” who cannot abide either civil society or civilization itself.  Nihilism is our only possible option if Democrats are allowed to exist.

It’s a simple thesis to prove: what if REPUBLICANS had rioted the day Obama was inaugurated?  What if seventy REPUBLICANS had boycotted the inauguration – the peaceful transition of power – of Obama?  What if a million Republican right wingers had demonstrated the day after Obama was inaugurated and loudly demanded that Obama not be allowed to do what he had just won election campaigning to do?  What if REPUBLICANS hijacked journalism and the university system the way the left has done and started allowing students to violently riot whenever a pro-Democrat speaker came to the school?  What if Arizona REPUBLICANS had defied Obama and went forward with their own immigration solution in a militant way the way most Democrat-governed states are doing now???

We would have collapsed into a bloodbath of rioting.  I mean, we never did anything even CLOSE to what you did and your side is collapsing into a bloodbath of rioting anyway.  Just imagine if we acted the way you’re acting.  We would have pitched, vicious battles in the streets.

Let me use another analogy I’ve used a couple times before: World War I.  The wicked WWI Axis powers from which Nazism ultimately spawned from were the first to use total war and bomb civilian population centers and they were the first to use poison gas on Allied soldiers.  Do you know what stopped them?  The Allies fought back the same damn way until the Axis asked for a return to more civilized warfare.

The ONLY way to defeat your enemy is to be willing to fight with that enemy on that enemy’s terms.  Had the Allies not responded in kind when their cities were being bombed by Zeppelins and their soldiers were being hideously killed and disfigured by poison gas attacks they would have surely lost the war.  But they fought back using the same tactics.

And they continued to do so until their wicked German enemies asked for a truce on those fronts.

If Republicans aren’t willing to resort to violent riots and mass demonstrations and a rabid refusal to recognize the legitimacy of the next Democrat to become president, we will lose.  Because this is a bitter war to the end, now.  That is beyond obvious.  If we don’t start shoving the most rabid right wingers down the collectivist throats of the Democrats who haven’t nominated a single judge who actually believed in the Constitution as our founding fathers envisioned it for nearly a hundred years, we will lose.  And we will ultimately lose everything – including our very lives – because the “Constitution” only means whatever is convenient for Democrats to believe at any given moment according to their own view of it.  And I believe I have demonstrated that Democrats today are rabid, vile, vicious, violent fascists today.  And if we don’t punch them so hard in the face it is beyond unreal, we won’t get another chance.  Because they are already showing right now, today, that they are going to come at us with a spirit of rabid, hysterical viciousness when the very first chance they get.  And Republicans had better be willing to fight back with everything they have if they value their children’s lives.  I’m telling you.

If you have ever voted Republican in your life, you need to join in EVERY SINGLE BOYCOTT of EVERY business that has EVER said anything critical of Trump or of conservative pro-growth policies.  You need to fight back, or you need to die.  Because die you will.

But we won’t do it.  Because we have something Democrats don’t have: we have morality, integrity, restraint.  The Democrats who rabidly hate God and believe in the religion of evolution have no restraint simply because just what the hell morally disqualifies somebody from being an atheist?  And the answer is ‘NOTHING’.

And so as much of a piece of crap as Jacob T. Levy’s “Beyond hypocrisy” editorial is, I agree with him that what he is saying is exactly what is going to happen in the United States.  Only it’s going to happen because enraged Republicans are finally ultimately going to remember every vile Democrat roach trick and perform it themselves when the tables turn again.  WE’RE going to be the ones who will steadfastly refuse to recognize the “legitimacy” of a Democrat president; WE’RE going to be the ones violently rioting and showing up in giant mass demonstrations.  WE’RE going to be the ones using every single procedural gimmick of government to shut down the president’s and the ruling party’s ability to govern.  Why will we do that?  BECAUSE DEMOCRATS DID IT AND WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.

Only by then it will be truly too late.  And our nation collapsed.  Jesus said that race would rise against race in the last days.  He also said the end would come upon us like birth pangs upon a woman, getting worse and worse until “the end” is born and devours us by the billions.  We’re seeing the birth pangs of it now.  Just as we’re seeing the “terrible times” that 2 Timothy chapter 3 said were coming as a truly toxic and vile last generation arose.  And we’re seeing that generation now.  The Antichrist of Revelation is just around the corner.

It’s amazing how the godless left and the religious right both agree: the end is coming.  And it’s coming on us FAST.  Welcome to what my fundamentalist Christian friends and I have been predicting for quite a while now as a result of our literal interpretation of what Jesus and the Bible said was coming.

And when it hits it will hit with the force of a sledge-hammer swung by a giant on an exposed and unsuspecting human face.

The funny thing is that, when the Antichrist comes, Democrats will be adoringly singing the man’s praises.  Because they desperately yearn for the poison the ultimate Government-as-God human leader will offer.

Just like eight years ago when Obama was spouting sewage like, “I won, and elections have consequences,” you Democrats have a right and a responsibility and a damn DUTY to put an END to the vile crap your party that you keep voting for is dumping on our culture and our nation right now.

But you won’t do it.

Which is why the beast is coming.

 

 

A Critical Review Of The Martin Scorsese-Shūsaku Endō Movie ‘Silence’ From A Biblical Christian Perspective

January 26, 2017
Spoiler alert.  My primary examination of this film relates to the final 15 minutes or so.  If you intend to see this film and prefer to be surprised, stop reading right here.  And please feel free to come back and read this article when you’ve seen it.
I believe that every Christian who happens to view this film needs to understand what is very profoundly wrong with it.
The first thing you need to understand is that the movie “Silence” is NOT a true story.  It is NOT based on any events that actually occurred apart from the general historical fact that the Japanese intensely persecuted and martyred tens of thousands of Christians in the 17th century.  There is no record of the priests named Ferreira (played by Liam Neeson) or Rodrigues and Garupe (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver).
The movie is based on a 1966 novel that emerges from the imagination of an author (Shusaku Endo).  It is NOT based on historical sources affirming the existence or the apostasy of priests either by the names of Ferreira and Rodrigues or by any other names.  For the record, I did not read the novel and after viewing the film have no intention to do so.
So the very first thing to realize is that you’re NOT watching something that actually happened; but rather things that an author and a film producer (Martin Scorsese) imagined to have happened.
The next thing to realize is that, from an artistic point of view, the movie was very well done.  It is beautifully filmed, wonderfully acted, and the story is intensely compelling.  Note, however, that I say that in the way that I would say that, from the same point of view, Leni Riefenstahl’s “Triumph of the Will,” which advanced Adolf Hitler as a Messiah figure in one of the great works of propaganda ever made, was also “very well done.”  As an example of that earlier propaganda film, “Triumph of the Will” begins masterfully from an artistic/propaganda perspective: Adolf Hitler’s airplane bringing Him to his people as he soars across the sky toward them, with the camera looking down at the ground below – and you see the shadow that looks like a cross.  And the visual message is inescapable: Adolf Hitler was sent by God to save his people; he is their messiah!  But it is a very different thing to be artistically beautiful and “true,” isn’t it?  I hope you can declare that with me.
That is how I ultimately view “Silence,” as a piece of propaganda that directly attacks Christian witness and the Christian spirit that is willing to suffer and even die for the sake of Jesus Christ (who suffered and died for us) and for the Gospel of the message of His cross.
A further thing you must understand is that it is simply impossible for me to divorce this film from our own current dark world, where more Christians are being persecuted and martyred than at any time in history.  In the Middle East, in Africa, frankly all over the world, Christians are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ.  And why would there be no connection between Islamic State of today, for example, and the Japanese shogunates when in fact both tormenters had the identical same project and used the identical same vicious tactics?  The only possible difference is that the Japanese shogunate regime had a subtle plan to psychologically torture and subvert the priests, rather than merely solely relying on bloodbath tactics.
I submit to you that if you want to see a film about Jesus in which the hero/protagonist is Judas Iscariot, then this is the movie for you.  And I will support that claim later in this article.  But I offer here the fact that Rodrigues wonders repeatedly throughout the film what Jesus meant when He said to Judas who was about to betray Him, “What you are about to do, do quickly”  (John 13:27).  Rodrigues wondered how Jesus felt when He said this; was He angry?
The film begins with two priests (Rodrigues and Garupe) passionately arguing that they need to go to Japan to find out what happened to to a priest named Ferreira who had been their mentor and confessor.  Ferreira had been caught up in the persecution against Christians as the shogunate rulers who were attempting to unify the country and repel foreigners focused their attack against the Christianity they saw as foreign and therefore a malevolent influence on Japan’s sovereignty.  In eradicating Christianity, the Japanese regime believed it would eradicate foreign influence.  All the Catholic Church had from Ferreira was a letter detailing the horrifying persecutions that had been written years before and painstakingly smuggled to them.
Rodrigues and Garupe wanted to find Ferreira.  Or at least find out what had happened to him.  But the Church did not want them to go, informing the two priests that Ferreira had apostocized and betrayed his faith.
What is interesting – and became quite significant to me later as I watched the film – is that all the Church has to go on are unverified and unsubstantiated stories and rumors.  And the two priests passionately believed in the faith of Ferreira and demanded nothing less than certainty before allowing the true Christian faith of such a man to be denied.  This becomes important later as it exposes what  found to be a very hypocritical aspect to this film.
Against all advice, the two priests are determined to go, and go they do.  They are smuggled into Japan.  Their guide is a Japanese man named Kichijiro who at their first meeting is a drunk and a liar.  He denies being a Christian but the priests know that the fact that he speaks their language (which would have been Spanish), he must have been a Christian.  They travel to a remote landing site.  And there’s a terrifying moment as they are rowed to the shore as seemingly menacing hands reach out from the sea to grab them.  But these are Christians who are overjoyed that priests are finally among them again who literally swam out to meet them and couldn’t wait to touch these blessings from Christ.
None of the Japanese Christians has ever heard of Ferreira or knows what happened to him.  The priests are shocked at the horror of their suffering and awed by the glory of their incredible faith which has enabled them to endure even the unendurable.
The Japanese Christians at the first village they go to haven’t had a priest in years.  Which means – on the (deeply flawed in biblical terms) Catholic view, they had no Mass and no confession of sins.  They had endured by sheer faith and desperate allegiance to Christ.
The village of Christians are ultimate discovered as the “Inquisitor” comes to their village.  Rodrigues continues to another village where there are Christians while Garupe remains to minister to the first flock.  Kichijiro serves as Rodrigues’ guide.  And Rodrigues learns the story of Kichijiro: he had professed faith in Christ, but had aposticized (stepped on the face of Jesus and His apostles in a plaque detailing the Last Supper that is placed on the ground) even though the rest of his family refuses.  He fled, but had lingered to watch them all be burned alive.  He says the smell is still in his nostrils.
And can he be forgiven for his apostasy?  Rodrigues hears his confession and grants him absolution.  And ultimately it emerges in the film as he has to keep doing so, he does it mechanically, because its his job to hear confession and mouth the words of absolution.
But ultimately apostocizes again.  And again and again and again.  Oh, and betrays Rodrigues for a reward of 300 pieces of silver in the middle of all of his other apostasies.  Rodrigues comes to realize what a truly miserable and despicable wretch Kichijiro is.  Kichijiro has a habit of continuing to apostacize while other Christians remain firm to the death, and then come crawling back, only to keep betraying the faith over and over and over again.  Again, Rodrigues’ insight into Kichijiro’s loathsome character becomes significant to me as I continued watching the film.
Rodrigues is betrayed and delivered into the hands of the Inquistor – by Kichijiro, of course – and the Japanese authorities begin to work to undermine the priest so that he will apostacize.
The Japanese have learned that the best strategy to undermine the faith of the priests is not to torture them, but rather to torture their converts and declare that the priests are responsible for these poor people’s suffering and the can stop it at any time just by apostocizing and stepping on Jesus’ face.  So Rogrigues, kept alone in a cage, is treated quite well while the Japanese Christians suffer. Rodrigues is given only enough time with the Japanese Christians to feel responsible for them; not enough to encourage/exhort them to stand up for their faith in Christ.
This tactic does not initially seem to work.  But the Japanese authorities throw Rodrigues a shock surprise.  They lead a group of captured Christians toward where Rodrigues is being held – and at the head of the procession is his fellow priest Garupe.  Rodrigues’ interrogator informs him that they have told Garupe that Rodrigues had apostocized.  And then they proceed with their torture/execution: the bound Christians are inserted into a wicker sheeth (to weigh them down as the water saturates) and tossed into the water and held down with oars to complete their drowning.
Garupe sees this, and even though bound, rushes into the water to save the Christians.  He reaches one – a girl we got to know in the film named Monica – and tries to lift her up even as the Japanese use their oars to hold her down.  The oars never touch Garupe, but he will not let go of the girl and drowns with her.  While Rodrigues screams in anguish, knowing his heroic friend died believing he had apostacized.  It is ironic that the heroic Christian Garupe’s belief would ultimately later be proven to be true.  Because while we don’t know it at the moment, Rodrigues WOULD apostacize just as the Japanese told Garupe that he had done.
But that isn’t all the tricks the Japanese shogunates have.  They also have one more priest – and this is the one that is utterly devastating to Rodrigues.
It is the priest Ferreira.  And the unsubstantiated rumors the Church authorities had received were in fact true: Ferreira truly had apostacized and become a Buddhist monk and had been living with them for years.  And Ferreira had completely denied the faith that he had gone to Japan to instill in so many others.  He was a leader who had utterly betrayed his own conscience, his own teaching and all of his followers who had believed his message.
Ferreira’s attack on Christianity, on the faith of the Japanese Christians who had perished by the tens of thousands for their faith, and on Rodrigues is devastating where the efforts to undermine on the part of the shogunates had merely been anguishing.
Rodrigues claims that the Japanes word for “God” is the word for the sun.  He claims that the Japanese don’t even understand Christianity, that the faith that they are dying for is NOT the true Christian faith.
He argues – as the shogunate Inquisitor had argued – that Japan is a country and a race of people that is comparable to a swamp, where nothing grows.  And that true Christian faith is impossible to them.  The Inquisitor had declared this and Rodrigues had responded by first saying the words, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).  Which obviously included Japan and the Japanese unless Jesus, the gloriously risen Son of the Living God was profoundly mistaken.  Rodrigues had also pointed out the obvious fact that hundreds of thousands of Japanese had believed; and it wasn’t that Japanese couldn’t believe, but that the shogunates were poisoning the field.  That alone was preventing the spread of the Gospel.  And Rodrigues also pointed out that as a simple matter of logic, something cannot be “true” and “false” at the same time.  The “truth” HAD to be true in all cases and in all places.  As an example (this from me, not from Rodrigues in the film), can one reasonably argue that it is okay for one culture to torture and murder infants for fun but wrong for another one?  No!  A universal truth is universally true by its very nature.  All three of these points were simple statements of fact.
But the heretic and apostate priest Ferreira now claims that none of the Japanese had truly believed the Gospel.  The heretic priest knows BETTER than Jesus, the Christ whom he had betrayed.  The Japanese people were just worshiping the sun above them; no Japanese person was created in the image of God; they were merely animals (“swamp creatures”) who could not be saved.  And they were being slaughtered in vain, rather than for any legitimate faith.
I call that one an “unsubstantiated rumor.”  Because at no point in the film had there EVER been ANY reason to believe that the devout Christians who were tortured and died for their faith didn’t have “true faith.”  In fact, at many points in the film, Rodrigues acknowledges being AMAZED by their faith.
And so now I take this to the direct comparison I began above to the Islamic world: what is the Arabic word for “God”?  It is “ALLAH.”  And so what word do Arab Christians use to refer to the God of the Bible?  Allah.  Does the fact that Arabic Christians use the only word their language gives them for “God” mean that there can be no such thing as an Arabic Christian, because if nothing can grow in Japan, then surely we can see today that nothing can possibly grow in the Middle East???
This amounts to outright racist blasphemy and the denial of the Imago Dei that is innate in all humanity.  Jesus told us to preach the Gospel “to every creature.”  1 Timothy 2:3-4 declares, “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
For me, this is a place where the integrity of the film utterly breaks down.  Because what is previously affirmed is denied without reason or cause.  But nevertheless, the movie character Rodrigues has been undermined to believe the lie.
Then Ferreira rebukes Rodrigues, telling Rodrigues that he had continually compared himself and his suffering to Jesus – and that the Japanese Christians would NEVER do that.  I believe that this rebuke was valid, indeed: and I ask who do you believe is more right?  The Japanese Christians who suffered and died for their faith while refusing to compare themselves to Jesus, or the priests who betrayed that faith even as they pridefully compared themselves to their faith’s Ultimate Paradigm?  That is an incredibly telling dialogue, because it reveals the ultimate character flaw of both Ferreira and Rodrigues: they never lost their human pride, their vanity.
The Word of God declares, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18).  But these priests – I submit according to their Jesuit training – were FILLED with pride and a haughty spirit.  Who was the Savior of the Japanese Christians?  And for the priests Ferreira and Rodrigues, the subconscious response would have been, “I am.”  But that isn’t true.  And as Rodrigues rightly pointed out in a previous dialogue, the Japanese Christians were NOT dying for him, but for Jesus and for their faith in the grace of the One who had suffered and died for them.
Ultimately, they cherished their vanity/pride above their faith in Jesus.
When you consider Catholic doctrine, it is too easy to see who easy it is for this to become internalized: who can perform the Mass?  ONLY a priest, because ONLY a priest has the magic power to miraculously transform the wafer and the wine into the actual, physical Body and Blood of Jesus.  There is ABSOLUTE NO PLACE in the Word of God where this twisted doctrine is taught.  It is an arrogant, prideful doctrine that creates arrogant, prideful priests.  And similarly, who alone can take confession, which is a necessary rite?  Any Christian, which the Bible declares?  1 Peter 2:5 declares that EVERY Christian believer is a living stone, being built into a spiritual house (temple) for a HOLY PRIESTHOOD through Jesus Christ.  1 Peter 2:9 declares that EVERY Christian belongs to “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that we may proclaim the excellence of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.”  Revelation echoes this theme, declaring that Christ has loved us and freed us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom of PRIESTS (Rev 1:6, see also Rev 5:10); and James 5:16 commands us to “confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”  There is NO biblical New Testament doctrine whatsoever requiring ordained priests for this.  This is nothing more than an organization, a bureaucracy, seeking to impose its control for its own sake.  And what we end up with on the Jesuit view is an ordained priesthood that is ontologically superior.  There are Christians, who are nothing and have no spiritual powers; and there are the Catholic Übermensch (to put it in  Nietzschean terminology) who stand above the rest of us and possess powers that only they alone of all men can possess.  And they possess it not by their personal spirituality and piety, but rather by declarative fiat of their organization.
So, ultimately, “Silence” is a fictional piece set in a terribly real time describing the fictional story of what could have happened as the cunning shogunates undermined the Jesuit priests by constantly appealing to their pride, their arrogance, their vanity, which had been instilled in them by their own Jesuit doctrines.
Whose job was it to save the Japanese Christians?  Why, it was Rodrigues’ job, of course.  Not God’s.  And Rodrigues could only do his job by stepping on the face of Jesus.
This arrogance is NOT merely incipient in Jesuits, or Catholics; it is also incipient for all those liberal Christians whose “Gospel” message is a SOCIAL gospel of providing for material needs and avoiding the REAL need of people for Jesus.  Man’s ultimate dilemma isn’t sin resulting in spiritual death and ultimate hell, it’s something physical.  When Jesus declared Himself to be the Bread of Life, and that he who comes to Him would never hunger, and that he whe believes in Him would never thirst (John 6:35), He was very clearly contrasting Himself with the physical and focusing on the spiritual.  That same Jesus later said in the same Gospel, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.”
Because our physical lives are not the end-all; because death is not the end.  Because Jesus made a new Kingdom possible for us to inherit.  If we but have the faith to pursue it.
This message, “Abandon your faith, and you shall be saved” is utterly twisted.  But it is the ultimate message of this film.
At the last, the movie the very title of the movie “Silence” betrays its fundamental and inherent hypocrisy again: God wasn’t “silent”; He had merely waited to speak until the right moment just before the ultimate decision to betray Him.  Jesus had been “silent” all along until the very end when He speaks to Rodrigues just before the priest apostacizes and denies Jesus by stepping on His face.  Jesus says to Rodrigues, “Go ahead, step on My face.”  The way He had previously said the words to Judas that had been so mystifying to Rodrigues, “What you are about to do, do quickly.”
 
It is easy to understand, from a purely and merely human point of view, why the man or woman who is not truly a member of the Kingdom of heaven would be shocked and appalled by martydom.  All you have to do is one simple little thing, “a formality,” one of the Japanese shogunates had called it.  In the first century – while the New Testament was still being written – all Christians had to do to appease their Roman emperors was to burn incence to Caesar and declare, “Caesar is lord.”  And they would not do it and died by the hundreds of thousands for their faith.
Jesus said, “whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven” (Matthew 10:33).
That is the factual record of Christian martydom throughout history.  The Book of Hebrews in the greatest passage on faith, contrast the victory of faith with the suffering of faith and to the latter declares, “But others were tortured, refusing to turn from God in order to be set free. They placed their hope in a better life after the resurrection.  Some were jeered at, and their backs were cut open with whips. Others were chained in prisons.  Some died by stoning, some were sawed in half, and others were killed with the sword. Some went about wearing skins of sheep and goats, destitute and oppressed and mistreated.  They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground.  All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised.  For God had something better in mind for us, so that they would not reach perfection without us” (Heb 11:35b-40).
I submit to you that, however imperfectly the Japanese Christian martyrs understood Christianity – primarily as a result of very imperfect Jesuit dogma – they were truly saved. There is NEVER any evidence offered to the contrary in the film apart from the word for God being the word for “the sun.”
But the twisted, warped, perverted message of this film is, “Step on the face of Jesus and deny Him.  That’s what our Lord who died for us likes.”  It is the message for people who purely live in this world, and whose reward is solely in this world, who offer that as “reasonable.”  This world is all we have; and so the “righteous” must cling to this world.
In my final words, I will try to answer the question, “Can a Christian who renounces his or her faith under duress still go to heaven?”  And I would submit to you yes.  For example Peter denied Jesus not once, not twice, but three times (a record that Kichijiro broke in this film).  And St. Peter was restored by Jesus.  Did that mean that denying Jesus was the right thing to do?  If you have ANY spiritual or even literary understanding whatsoever, you cannot possibly answer “yes” to that question.  Which is what makes this movie that is so well filmed and acted and narrated so ultimately irrational and so disappointing.
I submit that there are heroic Christians who STAND for their faith in the Jesus who suffered and died for them and they are REWARDED for their sacrifice in the place where they stored up their treasures – in heaven (called “Paradise” in the film by the Japanese who remembered what Jesus said to the thief on the cross who asked Jesus to remember Him in His Kingdom: “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:39).  But that there are and always have been Christians who are more fleshly and weak.  1 Corinthians 3:15 talks about such Christians and their works in these terms: “If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved–even though only as one escaping through the flames.”  Just as on a professional sports team you have your highly paid stars who by their talent and skill dominate the game; you have your more average workhorse players who fill their roles; and you have your benchwarmers who will never see gametime unless somebody gets hurt; so also you have great Christians who do great things and will receive great reward in heaven, you see more average Christians who serve as best as they are able, and you have your occasional pew fillers who do little else.  But then, on the spiritual side, there are also those who professed allegiance to Jesus but were never truly saved, who will one day stand before Him and point to their works (Matthew 7:22); and Jesus will say to them, “I never knew you. Away from Me, you evildoers!” (Matt 7:23).
Again, Jesus said, “whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven” (Matthew 10:33).  “Silence” actually twists disowning and denying Christ into a VIRTUE.  And you have to decide for yourselves who your source of authority and reality is: Jesus, the divine Son of God who was born and “came into the world to testify to the truth” (John 18:37), or a fictional account testified by heretical, apostate priests.
This movie is based on historical fiction and it is based on spiritual deception.  Our faith ought to be in our ultimate destination, and the reward that those who truly know Jesus will receive there.  It should not be on avoiding the consequences of living for that ultiamte destination by denying the One who saved us.
I watched the end of the film and how Rodrigues and Ferreira acted and lived in the aftermath of their apostasy with interest.  At one point, Ferreira uses the words “our Lord,” and Rodrigues catches him doing it.  And Ferreira merely denies it, saying, “I doubt [that I said] it.”  And therein is this secretive, gutless “faith” that we are left with – a hollow faith that neither produces anything or means anything” – in stark contrast to what first John the Baptist (Luke 3:9) and later Jesus proclaimed that “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire” (Matthew 7:19).
It’s virtually impossible to maintain that Ferreira and Rodrigues “produced good fruit” as they literally collaborated with the persecutors and torturers of Jesus Christ’s Body on earth and conspired with them to stamp out Christianity in Japan.  And just as Ferreira’s apostasy had destroyed Rodrigues, so also Rodrigues’ apostasy destroyed the Japanese Christian movement.  In the 2nd century – after a century of intense persecution during which the Christian church GREW – Tertullian summed it up this way, saying, “The Blood of martyrs is the seed of the Church.”  The meaning is clear: that the martyrs’ willing sacrifice of their lives leads to the conversion of others.  But what happens if the shepherds abandon and betray their flocks?
Jesus taught His disciples that “whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24).  And neither Ferreira or Rodrigues turned out to be Jesus’ disciples, denied themselves, took up their cross – (literally the instruments of their own death sentences) – or followed their Lord in His example.  Instead, they accepted His invitation to abandon Him, just as Judas Iscariot had accepted Jesus’ invitation to do what he was going to do quickly.
Ferreira says “our Lord” and then immediately takes it back.  Kichijiro is caught right after stepping on Jesus’ face for like the thousandth time with a Christian amulet around his neck that he tries to deny but is taken away presumably to his execution for possessing.  And only at his death – after a life of one denial of Jesus after another after another – we see in Rodrigues’ cold dead hands a little cross like one he had earlier formed for the Japanese to have some physical token of the faith they were suffering and dying for.  But Rodrigues would never suffer, and he would die of old age no different in outward appearance from every other Buddhist in Japan aside from his race.
Rodrigues, in particular, continued to live, but only as a hollow shell of a man.  There is no joy in apostasy.  And there ARE things worse than death.
The message that, “No matter how many times you deny Jesus and refuse to live for Him or take a stand for Him in any way, any shape or any form, you can still have it all” rings as hollow in the movie as it does according to what Jesus taught and what the remainder of the New Testament affirmed.
So the ultimate question is, what was the motivation behind this film?  And I submit that it was good intentions even as the road to hell is PAVED with “good intentions.”  As I wrote in my introductory remarks, I cannot believe this film emerged out of a vacuum.  Rather, it is apparent to me that Martin Scorsese very likely was justifiably appalled by the fact that Christians are without any question THE most persecuted and martyred group of people on earth today.  And something in him reacted to that awful reality.  But just because I am reacting to something awful doesn’t make my reactions good or noble – I may overreact and make a bad problem worse; I may react by imposing the wrong solution that only disheartens the oppressed and persecuted.
And it is certainly that latter course that Scorsese chooses.  He reacts as a secular humanist, for whom this world is all there is.  He cannot see the Kingdom of Heaven; he has no idea what happens on the other side of life.  And so he seeks to alleviate the immediate suffering by trying to impose his solution: just step on the face of Jesus and deny Him; just live a life identical to the rest of the world so no one can notice the salt and light of your Christian witness (but see Matthew 5:13-16).  And if a tiny little crucifix is inserted into your hands after you die of old age as others suffer and die in testimony to their Lord and to their faith in their Lord, surely that is enough.  And no, it’s not.  Scorsese’s is a dreadful solution that leads nowhere but spiritual death.
Even in Scorsese’s own narration, apostasy won’t do you any good.  According to the Japanese torturers, the Japanese Christians had ALREADY apostacized.  And yet it didn’t matter: they were still being tortured.  And the point is, if you’re going to be tortured and murdered and martyred anyway, WHY NOT AT LEAST STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE?  And just as the Japanese didn’t care whether Christians apostacized or not, does anyone today actually believe that Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) cares?  As far as they are concerned, people are “Christians” just because they happen to be U.S. Citizens; they will gleefully behead militant atheists for being “Christians.”  There is ultimately simply no reason not to follow your Lord, follow His example, and STAND.
Returning to the obvious parallel of Arab Christians suffering and dying in the bloodbath of whatever territory Islamic State controls, can you imagine how devastating and disheartening it would be for these heroic, persecuted Christians to be told by Western elitists that they are using the word “Allah” for “God” and therefore they as Arabs cannot comprehend God or Christianity and are merely dying like stupid animals rather than as Christian saints?  That is ultimately evil, not helpful.
The missionary movement to Japan produced over 400,000 Christians in the 17th century.  And yet today Japan is one of the LEAST Christian nations on the face of the earth.  And to whatever extent the movie “Silence” reveals any truth whatsoever, it would be that when Christians begin denying their faith – particularly when they are LED to deny their faith following the very example of their shepherds whom their Catholic theology taught them stands in the place of Christ Himself – it becomes easy to understand even within the logic of the film why Japanese soil was so spiritually poisoned.

 

Why It Is Now So Beyond Obvious That Fascist, Unhinged Democrats Will Rabidly Desire The Mark Of The Beast And Worship Their Führer

January 23, 2017

I’m attacked because of my tone.  But the only problem with that is that everything I say below is the documented, God’s-honest-TRUTH.

And there are too many people who have nothing but hostility, contempt and even hatred for the truth.

What is America going to be like when the Antichrist, the beast of the Book of Revelation comes to power and implements a mark that everyone will be forced to take as an act of worship in “Dear Leader”?

We already get to see hints of it today that reveal all the “who, what, when, why and where” details of that day that journalists ask.

For example:

Why is Taylor Swift’s tweet about the Women’s March so controversial?
The Washington Post
Emily Yahr
1/23/17

While hundreds of thousands of people participated in Women’s Marches around the world on Saturday, many celebrities showed up as well, joining in with those protesting President Trump’s controversial campaign and election, particularly his treatment of women. The long list of stars included Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Amy Poehler, Lena Dunham and many more; celebs including Madonna and Alicia Keys made speeches and performed in Washington.

Some A-listers didn’t attend the march, but tweeted support. Pop star Taylor Swift, for example, wrote this:

taylor-swift-tweet

While many fans praised her for speaking out, the backlash started almost immediately; over the weekend, publications rounded up the critical comments. (Buzzfeed: “Taylor Swift Didn’t Go To The Women’s March And People Are Mad.” Cosmopolitan: “Taylor Swift Is Being Epically Dragged on Twitter By Her Fans.” PopCrush: “Taylor Swift Faces Backlash Following Too Little, Too Late Women’s March Support.”) But why is Swift’s tweet so controversial?

There are two elements to the criticism. The first is that Swift, 27, was silent about the controversial, divisive presidential campaign until Election Day, when she posted a picture of herself in line to vote, urging her 83 million Twitter followers to do the same. It’s clear that many were interested in her views: “Who is Taylor Swift voting for?” was a popular Google search term last fall.

Swift has always remained mum about her political leanings. “I don’t talk about politics because it might influence other people. And I don’t think that I know enough yet in life to be telling people who to vote for,” she told Time magazine in 2012. Yet her wide-ranging influence is exactly why people wanted her to speak up this past election about Trump’s attitude toward women, given that Swift has become an outspoken advocate for feminism. […]

I support what you women are doing, Taylor says.

NOT rabidly ENOUGH, snarl the leftists.  NOT with enough ANGER or enough HATE or enough VIOLENCE.

It’s not ENOUGH with leftists to offer verbal support for one of their Nazi rallies; no, you’ve got to personally swear a blood oath of allegiance to the death to the Führer.  THAT’S now what it means to be a “Democrat” today.

You won’t be allowed to offer token lip service when the Antichrist comes to power.  The Democratic Party will never allow that.  Democrats will sniff you out and out you if you don’t support the Antichrist with adequate enthusiasm.

The women who attended that hate rally in Washington D.C. – and just imagine if that many Republicans had organized to gather in our nation’s capitol to demonstrate their hatred and contempt for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, and how the Joseph Goebbels-style Ministry of Propaganda that is our leftwing mainstream media would have covered that gathering of conservatives – did NOT represent “women.”  Not one woman I know was at that event; and furthermore not one woman I know, including numerous Hispanic women, fwiw, would have gone to that pro-infanticide witch conclave at the point of a loaded rifle with a bayonet attached.

I could start blathering that I speak for all humanity, or I speak for all American men, or whatever, and if I did that I would be fit to be dragged away and fit with a jacket that featured sleeves that tie behind my back before being deposited in a rubber room.  The ONLY person right now who has anything CLOSE to the mandate to speak for all Americans is the man who just got inaugurated president – which Democrats told us every single day of the Obama presidency.

But what we are seeing now is the full demonic spirit of the Democrat Hypocrite Machine on full display: again, you tell ME how the leftist mainstream media, the Democrat Party, the supporters of the Democrat Party in general, would have reacted to a violent RIOT with 230 people arrested most of whom would face felony rioting charges:

felony-rioting

Inauguration Day marks the historically unparalleled event in world history in which there is a peaceful transfer of power following a democratically-held election of all adult citizens.   But it is now a statement of fact that “Democrats” are fascists and Nazis who have already murdered TEN TIMES as many innocent human beings in their abortion mills as the Nazis murdered Jews in the Holocaust.  “Democrats” have already murdered more innocent human beings than the total number that was killed – military and civilian alike, by act of war or by disease alike – of all human beings in our worst war in all of human history (WWII).  And these are the worst sort of hypocrite fascists who tell us with straight faces that when THEY do something they would demonize their opponents for if they did the same thing, that they are actually acting in noble cause.

The women’s march on Washington D.C. was primarily about ABORTION and the right of a woman to force her own child to die for the sake of her irresponsible and depraved convenience.  From the New York Times:

Views on Abortion Strain Calls for Unity at Women’s March on Washington
By SHERYL GAY STOLBERGJAN. 18, 2017

WASHINGTON — As a self-described feminist and law student who wants to correct racial wrongs in the criminal justice system, Maria Lyon agrees with Hillary Clinton that “women’s rights are human rights.” But when thousands of women march on the capital the day after Donald J. Trump is inaugurated as president, she will not be there.

The reason: She opposes abortion.

“It’s hard, because right now it feels like if you’re pro-life, you’re anti-woman,” said Ms. Lyon, 23, who studies law at the University of Wisconsin. “That’s kind of the traditional rhetoric. It’s like if you care about women and you care about women’s rights then you should be pro-choice.”

Ms. Lyon is not the only feminist agonizing. Across the country, women who oppose abortion — including one in six women who supported Hillary Clinton, according to a recent survey by the Pew Research Centerare demanding to be officially included in Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington. But those requests have been spurned, creating a bitter rift among women’s organizations, and raising thorny questions about what it means to be a feminist in 2017.

“If you want to come to the march you are coming with the understanding that you respect a woman’s right to choose,” Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn-born Palestinian-American Muslim racial justice and civil-rights activist, and one of four co-chairwomen of the march, said in an interview on Tuesday.

Oh, yeah.  Sounds like all women were invited to celebrate womankind to me.  As long as “womankind” is defined as far leftist radical rabidly intolerant fascists, anyway.

This march that hypocritically and dishonestly framed itself as “inclusive” BANNED women who believe that women in the womb deserve rights, too.

The “Women’s March” was this:

abortion-subsidiary

This was what it felt like to be a pro-life woman who tried to march with their fellow “feminists”:

While hundreds of thousands of marchers felt like they were getting their message out during the Washington D.C. Women’s March Saturday, not everyone enjoyed the experience.

“It was a brutal day,” Kristina Hernandez, director of communications for the anti-abortion organization Students for Life, told USA TODAY after the march.

Hernandez said that the group of around 50 people she was marching with were harassed because of the signs they were carrying which said “Abortion betrays women.

“I did not feel safe at all,” Hernandez continued. She added that the unexpectedly large turnout for the march made it “so overwhelming.”

“One of our girls was spit at, someone tore my sign in multiple pieces, we had people just yell at us but the main response was people just said ‘my body my choice’ when they walked past us,” said Reagan Barklage, the Western regional director for the group.

Again, just imagine if conservatives had rallied huge numbers of violent people to swear they would burn the White House to the ground before they would allow Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton to be their president and had physically assaulted and spat at groups supporting leftist causes would have been depicted in the mainstream media.

I have a feeling such a march would not have been framed so nicely.

Again, IF you are a Democrat, you are a hypocrite without decency, without virtue, without honesty and without honor of any kind.  If you are a Democrat, you are the moral equivalent of a roach.

It’s beyond laughable how the left tries to frame Donald Trump with Adolf Hitler.  But here’s what the actual Nazi Germany looked like as it was exterminating an entire population of people in 1/10th as murderous of a manner as modern-day Democrats:

Loyalty to the Third Reich, and Adolph Hitler in particular, was essential to the Nazi Party. Reichsführer Rudolph Hess said, “The National Socialism of all of us is anchored in uncritical loyalty, in the surrender to Der Führer that does not ask for the why…but in the silent execution of his orders. We believe that Der Führer is obeying a higher call…There can be no criticism of this belief.” Hitler exacted from the officers and soldiers of the armed forces an oath of allegiance to himself, rather than to Germany, which included the words, “I will render unconditional obedience to Adolph Hitler…and to risk my life at any time for this oath.” As a symbol of that loyalty, they – and everyone in Germany – were obliged to give the “Heil Hitler” salute.

Sorry, Taylor Swift.  Your crime was that you didn’t raise your hand quite high enough and scream your “Heil Hitler!” loud enough.

Democrats have no respect for people who support Donald Trump, no respect for people who did not support Hillary Clinton, no respect for people who didn’t or will not publicly hate Donald Trump or support the right to murder babies loudly or demonically enough for their taste.

I personally started out opposing Donald Trump.  And you can see what I said and why I said it here.  I was literally questioning if I could in my own conscience vote this man or in any way, shape or form support his candidacy.

But Hillary Clinton and her roach-army of Democratic Party supporters proved to be so beneath VILE that I realized that in this election, this binary choice between one of two candidates who would be our next president, that I had to support awful in order to avert EVIL.  It was as simple of a choice as this: given the “choice” between having my right arm chopped off or all four of my limbs chopped off, and rightly believing that one of those two “choices” was going to happen whether I liked it or not, I would choose to have my right arm chopped off.

I’ve pointed out more than once that I actually PREDICTED the rise of a candidate like Donald Trump and accurately explained the reasons why there would be so much anger in response to the truly fascist Barack Obama presidency:

Obama’s strategy is to set aside and flatly ignore the law for his own political benefit.  Every American who is not deeply troubled by that – troubled enough to not vote for this fascist – is UN-American.

What Obama has done is provide an example of out-and-out lawlessness on the part of the president of the United States.  And when we get a hard-core right wing president the way Obama has been a hard-core left wing president, Obama and the Democrat Party and all of those who voted for Obama and the Democrat Party will be entirely to blame for that president and his extremist actions.  You mark my words.  Because what goes around comes around, and if a Democrat can set aside the law the way Obama has now repeatedly done, well, guess who’s going to be stomping on your necks under your own president’s prior justification???  Conservatives are rising up in a spirit of righteous outrage.  You have repeatedly slapped us in the face through your messiah Obama, and the time is coming when we’re going to punch you hard in the nose and then keep on punching.  And when that day comes, liberals, look to yourselves for blame.My words on June 18, 2012

Don’t blame anyone but YOURSELVES and YOUR OWN DEMOCRATIC PARTY for the rise of Donald Trump, Democrats.  YOU did this.  YOU poisoned the well.

As an example, consider Obama’s words and the GOP’s response to his words:

Obama said: “I do have an obligation to make sure that I am following some of the rules,” Obama said in October 2010. “I can’t simply ignore laws that are out there. I’ve got to work to make sure that they are changed.”

The Republican response was: “What incentive do we have to work with him?” complained one Republican Senate aide. “He is just doing whatever he wants. It doesn’t matter what the country wants.”

“Some of the rules.”  Well, as the angriest black leftists say, “That’s mighty white of you” – to selectively and arbitrarily follow ONLY the laws that you like while ignoring all the ones you don’t.

For eight, miserable years Obama URINATED in the eyes of tens of millions of the American people after hypocritically and dishonestly running on a platform of unity and saying there were no red states and blue states but only the United States.  And he did it so often that in the end he turned firmly blue states Republican RED.  Hillary Clinton won fewer than 500 counties; Donald Trump won more than 2,600 counties; and Donald Trump won 209 counties that had voted for Barack Obama.  Obama began his fascist presidency with a FILIBUSTER-proof Senate majority and an overwhelming superiority in the House of Representatives.  He started with a majority of the state governorships, a majority of the state legislatures.  And he pissed them all away.  And THIS is what the nation looks like today as a result of Obama and his policies:

So why did I vote for Trump?

Here are the articles I wrote that again provide the factual documentation of what I witnessed happening:

Why It Really Is EASY To Vote For Donald Trump In The General Election (Because The Other Side Is Openly STALINIST)

Democrats Truly Are Nazis, Or How The Left Actually Started Turning Me Into A Trump Supporter.

Democrats Are More ‘NAZI’ Today Than Actual NAZIS As Vicious Democrat Violence CONSTANTLY Physically Attacks Free Speech

Mobs of brutal Democrats – and let’s just call them what they are: vicious Brownshirt fascist thugs – descended upon people who believed that the 1st Amendment of our Constitution provides the right of free speech and the right to peaceably assemble to hear that free speech.

But Democrats are no longer people who are capable of TOLERATING free speech or the results of a democratic system.  They will violently riot.  They will scream you down.  They will spit on you and physically beat you.

We’re already seeing that in spades.

And it’s beyond obvious that they are going to get worse and worse.  Because the Democratic Party is the Proto-Party for the Coming Antichrist.

Democrats are becoming more hysterical, more angry, more rabid, more hateful and more violent by the day, if not by the hour as the political party of sociopathy becomes increasingly psychotic.

 

Barack Obama Just Proved That The Democratic Party Is The Leading Party Of Satan On Earth In Shamefully Betraying Israel

December 29, 2016

“I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; And they have divided up My land.” — The Word of the LORD as declared in Joel 3:2,12

“Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; for the winepress is full, the vats overflow– for their wickedness is great.” Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will diminish their brightness. The Lord also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake; But the Lord will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel. “So you shall know that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, and no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”  (Joel 3:12-17)

‘A clamor has come to the end of the earth, Because the LORD has a controversy with the nations. He is entering into judgment with all flesh; As for the wicked, He has given them to the sword,’ declares the LORD. — Jeremiah 25:31

“For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.  Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.” — Zechariah 14:2,3

At this point, I think it is beyond obvious: “all the nations” is prophetically speaking about the UNITED NATIONS that Barack Obama and John Kerry and their Democratic Party just used as a weapon against Israel.

Allow me to be crystal clear at the very outset: Israel – yes, Israel with its capital as Jerusalem – has a right to exist.  It is the United Nations that has no right to exist.  It is the Palestinian Authority and the terrorist organization Hamas that has no right to exist.  It is Barack Hussein Obama, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton who have no right to exist.

The Democratic Party – the party of the murder of sixty million of God’s innocent babies as clearly stated according to Psalm 139:13-16, the party of defiant moral perversion according to Romans 1:18-32, the party that deifies the godless State above the LORD in the mold of 1 Samuel 8:4-22 – is with crystal clarity the party of Lucifer in his rabid hate for God’s nation of Israel.

It is simply a FACT that the United States has veto power of all U.N. Security Council Resolutions as a Permanent Member.  And therefore, Barack Obama, John Kerry, and the Democratic Party are ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE for the hateful, anti-Semitic, poisonous stab in the back that directly laid ALL the blame for the lack of peace in the Middle East upon Israel; and it declared that Israel literally has no right whatsoever to “occupy” it’s own holiest city of Jerusalem.

The Washington Times described Obama’s dishonest and treasonous and demonic act of betrayal according to famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz:

Famous Harvard Law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz is livid with President Obama for allegedly deceiving him in an Oval Office meeting.

The White House’s decision Friday to refuse to rebuke a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement construction drew the ire of longtime Israel supporter Mr. Dershowitz, who told Fox News Monday that in a private meeting with the president prior to Election Day, Mr. Obama vowed to “have Israel’s back.”

The council approved the resolution with 14 votes after a U.S. abstention.

“He called me into the Oval Office before the election and he said to me, ‘Alan, I want your support. And I have to tell you, I will always have Israel’s back,’” Mr. Dershowitz said of the president. “I didn’t realize that what he meant was that he would have their back to stab them in the back.  He just stabbed them in the back.”

The lawyer said complicating such matters for a successor during a lame-duck period is the “most undemocratic thing a president can do.”

John Bolton pointed out more correctly that Obama didn’t merely stab Israel in the back; he stabbed them in the FRONT.

Israel claims that it has direct evidence that the United States under Obama and Kerry directly colluded and conspired to bring this stab in the back into fruition:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has long had a cool relationship with President Barack Obama, has called the resolution “shameful” and accused the U.S. of playing a leading role in its passage.
On Tuesday, his spokesman went even further.
“We have ironclad information that emanates from sources in the Arab world and that shows the Obama administration helped craft this resolution and pushed hard for its eventual passage,” David Keyes said.
“We’re not just going to be a punching bag and go quietly into the night as the Obama administration helps push such a grave resolution,” he said.
He did not identify the Arab sources or say how Israel obtained the information. Israel has close security ties with Egypt, an original sponsor of last week’s resolution. Under heavy Israeli pressure, Egypt delayed the resolution last week before other council members presented it for a vote a day later. Egypt ended up voting in favor of the measure.
Keyes claim mirrors that of his boss Netanyahu, who told his Cabinet on Sunday: “From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama Administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed.”

There is no point giving evidence to the administration that illegally and treasonously weaponized the Internal Revenue Service into the Internal Revenge Service and targeted conservatives and then refused to allow the evidence of their crime to emerge; there is no point giving evidence to the administration that illegally and treasonously allowed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to build an illegal secret server and then helped her to conceal the evidences of her crime; there is no point giving evidence to the administration that actually – in proof of their gigantic hypocrisy given their outcry over Russia interfering in the U.S. elections – conspired with the political enemies of the Prime Minister of Israel in the Israeli election (see here and here).

If Russia did anything wrong, then Obama belongs in a prison cell.  Because he even MORE directly tried to interfere in the democratic election of a sovereign government.

Furthermore, if what Obama has now done – both with Israel and with Russia as Obama tries to impose sanctions on Putin for something that yes Obama YOU did WORSE – then every single Democrat in America just gave Donald Trump unilateral authority to do ANYTHING he damn well wants the day before a Democrat President takes office to poison the waters for the next Democrat.  And this is nothing more than one more of a billion evidences as to what stinking piles of hypocrite FILTH Democrats truly are.  Because every single morally sentient being on planet earth knows for a FACT how Democrats would howl if one of ours did to one of theirs what they are right now doing to us.

Russia RIGHTLY mocks Obama.  They have said of his pathetic and way-WAY-too-late posturing that his actions were “the death throes of political corpses,” and even better yet, calling the Obama administration “a group of embittered and dim-witted foreign policy losers.”  Both descriptions are ENTIRELY appropriate to Barack Obama, who has revealed himself to be the most petty and pathetic loser in American presidential history.  Under Obama’s failed presidency, his party lost MASSIVELY: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.  Yet the fool vainly boasts that he would have won were the Constitution that he has proven for eight years he despises was not in place.  And as bad as Obama was for his political party, he was even WORSE for his nation’s standing in the world: under Obama, our military became a broken machine; our national credibility has been destroyed both in terms of the trust of our allies and in terms of the fear inspired in our enemies – Russia’s as well as China’s constant intimidation of Obama KNOWING he would do NOTHING is proof of that.  And under Obama, the world went mad as we suffered a beyond-staggering one-thousand, nine-hundred percent increase in deaths by terrorism since the disgraced fool assumed office in 2009.  Under Obama, the United States of America attacked Israel for building homes while more than half a MILLION human beings were butchered and as a direct result of Obama’s failure to LEAD untold millions are now refugees disrupting and destabilizing every nation on earth.

Any human being capable of possessing so much as a scintilla of wisdom would be humble had he failed as much as Obama has failed.  But Obama is a unique species of self-righteously arrogant pathological fool.  He is like the gambler who has already lost everything, but simply cannot stop himself from one more stupid attempt to win it all back.

Israel says it will wait until Obama’s stink is vacuumed and scrubbed out of the Oval Office before it brings its case proving his guilt in their betrayal at the United Nations.  There is no point giving evidence of the devil’s guilt to the devil.  Israel will wait for a president who doesn’t hate and despise their very existence and give the evidence of Obama’s and Kerry’s guilt to President Donald Trump.

What Obama did was to poison the water for ANY future peace between Israel and the Islamic nations that surround her like rabid, hungry wolves.

If any treaty actually was made, the Palestinians would merely renege on it just as they have already done with other treaties.

Consider the Oslo Accords that the Palestinians betrayed:

In August 1993, the delegations had reached an agreement, which was signed in secrecy by Peres while visiting Oslo. In the Letters of Mutual Recognition, the PLO acknowledged the State of Israel and pledged to reject violence, and Israel recognized the PLO as the representative of the Palestinian people and as partner in negotiations. Yasser Arafat was allowed to return to the Occupied Palestinian Territories. In 1995, the Oslo I Accord was followed by Oslo II. Neither promised Palestinian statehood.

It certainly also didn’t say anything about Israel retreating to a 1967 border.

Back in 2013, terrorist-emboldened Abbas said he was negotiating on the basis of pre-1967 lines.

And that is PRECISELY what Obama’s and John Kerry’s United Nation resolution does: demand Israel return to pre-1967 borders just before the Arabs attacked Israel with Egypt, Syria, Jordan and the Palestinian terrorist group the PLO trying to exterminate them.

John Kerry, laughably depicting himself as a “friend” of Israel, said:

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry urged ‘Israel’ and Palestine to agree on two-state borders based on 1967 lines.

The only problem with pre-1967 lines is that they are utterly indefensible:

A return to those lines would leave Israel with a waistline just nine miles (15 kilometers) wide at its narrowest point, Jerusalem surrounded on three sides by Palestinian land and the country’s main international airport just a few miles (kilometers) away from the border. If hostilities break out, Israel’s largest cities could be vulnerable to rocket fire and other attacks.

There is NO NATION ON EARTH that would place itself in such a strategically exposed position.  And it is nothing less than an official act of hate for Obama and John Kerry to demand that Israel do what no nation on earth would ever be foolish enough to do.  Further, Israel has more right to the land it “occupies” than the United States has to the land that IT occupies.  Maybe after we’ve given all of the land we possess back to the Indians and to the Mexicans, we may have some right to scold Israel.  But not until then.

One of the things seized by Israel was the strategically critical Golan Heights.  Given what Syria has already done to more than half a million of their OWN people, just how morally evil do you have to be to demand Israel give this vital piece of defense to mass murderers who hate them with an ancient, rabid hatred beyond any reason???

We have already seen that every time Israel has given up an inch of territory, that territory was merely used as a point to launch rocket attacks against the citizens of Israel.  And to make it even more obscene, every single time Israel has been forced to respond to those massive rocket attacks against their civilian population – no matter how careful the Israelis were to avoid killing Palestinian women and children – they have been rabidly excoriated by a United Nations whose goal is to help the Arabs drive Israel into the Red Sea to their national extermination.

When Israel not only gave up settlements, but literally gave up the entire Gaza Strip to the Palestinians, what did they get in return?  They got the Palestinians electing a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION that is STILL listed as a terrorist organization by both the Hillary Clinton and John Kerry State Departments; they got an even MORE rabid determination to refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist and wipe her off the map; they got more attacks and more violence.

EVEN THE MOST LIBERAL JEWISH POLITICAL PARTIES REJECT THE 1967 BORDERS.  THIS IS FAR MORE THAN MERELY A NON-STARTER.  And the Israeli people massively oppose returning to those borders.

And yet thanks to a wicked Barack Obama, a wicked John Kerry, and a wicked and demon-possessed Democratic Party, what is a totally acceptable non-starter for Israel will be the basis for the Palestinians JUST FOR STARTERS.

In the business world, what Obama and Kerry did is known as a poison pill tactic.  And it was nothing short of an act of savage, demonic hatred for Obama and Kerry who turned their back on the murders of more than half a million human beings and turned their back on untold millions of refugees; but have the naked, evil hypocrisy to condemn Israel.

There now can NEVER be peace until the Antichrist comes in fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 and imposes a seven year covenant that the Book of Revelation describes as the horrifying “Tribulation.”  Israel will ultimately be DRIVEN to the Antichrist because the existence of Democrats means that the United States can NEVER be deemed trustworthy again.  America under any Democratic administration just officially became a Jew-hating entity that cannot be trusted.  Where will Israel turn?  Ultimately to the beast.

If that’s not evil enough, John Kerry also foolishly and wickedly said:

“Israel Can Either Be Jewish or Democratic — It Cannot Be Both.”

Yes, Obama, yes, Kerry: let the Arabs have a democratic election and vote on the question, “Should we murder all the Jews here and take all of their stuff for ourselves?”  And the result will be “Hell YES!”  THAT’S “democracy” to Barack Obama and John Kerry!!!

And we have already seen how Democrats react to “democracy” when the people vote for Trump – the answer being “poorly.”

I tell you what: name ONE Arab state, or ONE Islamic nation, where the Arab citizens have more rights and more freedoms than in ISRAEL, you pathologically morally-idiotic, demon-owned Democrat fools.  Because there isn’t one and there never was one and frankly there never WILL be one.

Name a time when a “nation of Palestine” every existed in the history of the human race.  Because it never HAS existed.

We live in an “asymmetric world,” with one side – including the State of Israel – abiding by civilized standards and the other side – including the Palestinian Authority and Hamas – that are pure savages that have no morality, no decency, no values other than the values of hatred and murder and extermination of those they hate who are different from them.

As I said, Hamas is STILL officially a “terrorist organization” even according to John Kerry’s own State Department.  But because to be a Democrat today is to be a pathological liar, Kerry wickedly refused to say that, instead claiming Hamas is merely a “militant group.”  Meanwhile, the so-called “good” side of the Palestinian government, the Palestinian Authority that used to be the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) prior to whitewashing itself in the Oslo Accords the Arabs benefited from and then dishonestly unilaterally abandoned, pays a stipend to families of terrorists who murder Jews and even names streets after terrorists who kill Jews.  All the while teaching Palestinian children on state television how to hate and murder Jews.

And the Democratic Party is part of this act of satanic hate.

The time is coming when every single Democrat will 1) worship the beast and his false prophet and 2) scream in hell for all eternity for their wickedness and their crimes.

You just brought us massively closer to Armageddon, Democrats.  That’s what those verses I cited at the top describe in the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  YOU, PERSONALLY, Democrat, are responsible for all nations gathering against Israel because YOU are responsible for that wicked U.N. Resolution that your elected roach Obama and your appointed filth Kerry enabled.  And the day is coming when you will PAY for your crimes against life and against Israel and against your Creator.

Ten Reasons Why Everyone Who Is NOT A Fool Believes In The Reality Of A Creator God

December 27, 2016

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” — Psalm 14:1; 53:1

I came across something rather odd while I was hiking out in the desert a day or so ago.  And then I came upon another thing, and then another, and another.  I’ll post what I saw:

20161221_134531

20161222_195859

So I came upon – one after another – what turns out to be ten objects remarkably shaped like hearts.

How did these hearts happen to come to be?

How did they “evolve”???  I only know that I neither made them, saw them made, or had anything to do with them other than I happened to see them in the desert, one after another.

Well, being a thoughtful man I thought about it.

Did they just happen by purely random natural evolutionary forces?  The wind and/or the water carried each component and just happened to deposit each piece without relocating the pieces that nature had already placed there until we had our “hearts”???

You can believe that.  And I can properly label you as a fool.

Of COURSE that didn’t happen.  Only a truly indoctrinated ideologue would ever believe an asinine story like that.  No, somebody – and I would guess the same somebody – made all ten of these hearts.  A MIND designed them and arranged the pieces just so according to a plan to bring about a purposeful result.

You can believe otherwise.  But you’re wrong.  And what’s more, you are a fool.  It doesn’t matter what your IQ is: you are a moral idiot who has committed your intellect to idiocy.  You have committed yourself to being wrong, and you have used every resource you have – your mind included – to justify your stupidity.  And you can have a dozen PhDs and you can have a buttload of money and you can have all sorts of prestigious titles and accolades and, yes, you can be a morally and therefore intellectual stupid person; a fool.

It may not have been a coincidence that whoever made ten hearts seems to have stopped at that number.

As I reflected on this “intelligent creative designer’s” work, I immediately thought of an analogy: the major systems of the human body.

It turns out that there are TEN such systems:

  1. Circulatory System: This system is made up of the heart, blood, blood vessels, and lymphatics. It is the body’s delivery system, concerned with circulating blood to deliver oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body.
  2. Digestive System: The purpose of the digestive system is to turn the food you eat into something useful for the body. When you eat, your body uses this system to digest food so your cells can use it to make energy. The organs involved in this system include the mouth, stomach, and intestines.
  3. Endocrine System: This system is made up of a collection of glands, including the pituitary and thyroid glands, as well as the ovaries and testes. It regulates, coordinates, and controls a number of body functions by secreting chemicals into the bloodstream. These secretions help control moods, growth and development, and metabolism.
  4. Integumentary System: This system consists of the skin, hair, nails, and sweat glands. Its main function is to act as a barrier to protect the body from the outside world. It also functions to retain body fluids, protect against disease, eliminate waste products, and regulate body temperature.
  5. Muscular System: This system is made up of muscle tissue that helps move the body and move materials through the body. Quite simply, muscles move you. Muscles are bundles of cells and fibers that work in a simple way: they tighten up and relax.
  6. Nervous System: The nervous system is the control center of the human body. It is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It receives and interprets stimuli and transmits impulses to organs. Your brain uses the information it receives to coordinate all of your actions and reactions.
  7. Reproductive System: The human reproductive system ensures that humans are able to reproduce and survive as a species. It is made up of organs such as the uterus, penis, ovaries, and testes.
  8. Respiratory System: The primary function of the respiratory system is to supply the blood with oxygen in order for the blood to deliver oxygen to all parts of the body. The respiratory system does this through breathing. It consists of the nose, larynx, trachea, diaphragm, bronchi, and lungs.
  9. Skeletal System: The skeletal system provides the shape and form for our bodies in addition to supporting and protecting our bodies, allowing bodily movement, producing blood cells, and storing minerals. This system consists of bones, cartilage, and joints.
  10. Urinary System: The purpose of the urinary system is to filter out excess fluid and other substances from your bloodstream. Some fluid gets reabsorbed by your body but most gets expelled as urine. The organs found in this system are the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra.

Ten hearts.  Ten organ systems.  How fitting!!!

Now, it’s not merely ten systems versus ten systems.  We’ll get to the vastly – INFINITELY – more complicated nature of the ten organ systems of the human body shortly, but let’s consider the fact that, unlike the hearts, each of the ten organ systems of the human body must already be present all at once for the rest of the systems to function.

Again, you can be a good Darwinist and claim that the skeletal system somehow evolved with all 206 individual bones (which actually starts with 270 bones at birth, with some of the bones being programmed to fuse together as the child develops) just somehow “assembled themselves” the same way the fool would claim the individual components of the hearts somehow assembled themselves.  But to what telos?  To what end?  For what purpose?  A skeleton would be a pretty amazing feat for natural forces to assemble – FAR MORE SO than the pieces of any of those hearts! – but it’s not like it’s alive or anything.

As it turns out, you need EVERY SINGLE ONE OF ALL TEN OF THESE SYSTEMS ALL FUNCTIONING SIMULTANEOUSLY for the organism to live or do a damn thing.  Just imagine you had the other nine but couldn’t eliminate: you’d live a very short life and explode in a tremendously icky manner!  But don’t worry, all of your friends would explode the same way and the human species would be extinct.

I’m going to guess that whoever designed and built those hearts with the purpose and plan they had in their minds, they built one at a time and then moved on to the next one.  But that aint the way a living, breathing, eliminating organism works.  All ten systems had to be designed so that they were all perfectly functioning at the exact same moment.  Or nothing.

That fact screams God.  And only the worst, most pitiable kind of unrelenting FOOL doesn’t comprehend that fact because of a terrible and terrifying moral defect worse even than sociopathy in the heart of that fool.

Evolutionists are a particular species of fool who believe that time solves everything.  If you were to stare at a rock for a long enough period of time, why, that rock would eventually come alive, and then it would eventually sprout wings and begin to fly.  Then it would talk and mock the atheist for being deluded enough to believe in flying, talking rocks.  And of course, given enough time, another rock of the opposite gender would similarly arise.  And then it would only be a matter of time before the two flying rocks evolved near enough the same place and the same time over the potential span of billions of years and they would fine one another and reproduce and … and.. build a monument of rocks in the shape of a heart in the California desert so that I could eventually find them and ponder the meaning.

How about “not.”

Let’s examine the “time problem,” not just from the standpoint of all of those ten incredibly and yes, infinitely complex organ systems.  Let’s consider the problem of time just for the very simplest living cell:

The Time Problem

To go from a bacterium to people is less of a step than to go from a mixture of amino acids to a bacterium. — Lynn Margulis (21.5)

The only premise that all of the precellular theories share is that it would be an extremely long time before the first bacterial cells evolved. If precellular life somehow got going, it could then conceivably begin to crank out, by some precellular process, random strings of nucleotides and amino acids, trying to luck into a gene or a protein with advantages which would lead to bacterial life. There is no evidence in life today of anything that produces huge quantities of new, random strings of nucleotides or amino acids, some of which are advantageous. But if precellular life did that, it would need lots of time to create any useful genes or proteins. How long would it need? After making some helpful assumptions we can get the ratio of actual, useful proteins to all possible random proteins up to something like one in 10^500 (ten to the 500th power). So it would take, barring incredible luck, something like 10^500 trials to probably find one. Imagine that every cubic quarter-inch of ocean in the world contains ten billion precellular ribosomes. Imagine that each ribosome produces proteins at ten trials per minute (about the speed that a working ribosome in a bacterial cell manufactures proteins). Even then, it would take about 10^450 years to probably make one useful protein. But Earth was formed only about 4.6 x 10^9 years ago. The amount of time available for this hypothetical protein creation process was maybe a few hundred million or ~10^8 years. And now, to make a cell, we need not just one protein, but a minimum of several hundred.

So even if we allow precellular life, there is a problem getting from there to proteins, genes and cells. The random production of proteins does not succeed as an explanation. Other intermediate, unspecified stages must be imagined. We could call these stages post-precellular life. By whatever means, life’s evolution through these stages would have to be time-consuming.

Now, I wrote about this before (when I came upon a similar phenomenon out in the desert that prompted me to think).  And here’s what I just pointed out about the above SCIENTIFIC FACTS:

“Time-consuming.”  There’s a rather gigantic understatement for you.  Try to write that number down: 10^450 years, which is 10 with 450 zeroes after it.  That is a number that makes our national debt even after the Obama spendaholic presidency look so infinitesimal that any kid ought to easily be able to solve our national debt crisis with his lunch money by comparison.  And it makes the length of time since our universe exploded into being some 14 billion years ago (1.4×10^10 years) and the earth formed 4.6 billion (4.6×10^9) yeas ago look tiny and insignificant by comparison.

4.6 billion years ago might seem like a long time: 4.6 with nine zeros after it.  That is, unless you compare it to the number “1” followed by a MINIMUM of FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY freaking zeroes.  We’re not talking about billions, we’re not talking about trillions, we’re talking about a number so vast only a true mathematician has ever even HEARD of it before: a Novenquadragintacentillion, at least according to our dictionary of Big Ass Numbers.

And that 10^450  years is just for ONE protein when you need to multiply that 10^450 years by several hundred proteins.  That last sentence of the first paragraph is actually staggeringly optimistic, considering that in this case “several hundred” is actually SEVERAL THOUSAND:

“A typical bacterium requires more than 4,000 proteins for growth and reproduction.”

So understand the dilemma: you need random trials requiring 10^450  years to form just ONE protein; but you actually would need at least another 3,999 more proteins that will take just as long to randomly generate after you finally generate that first one.  Each one is going to take you about another 10^450  years’ worth of random trials to generate!  And finally after 10^450  a.k.a. a novenquadragintacentillion years multiplied by “more than 4,000 proteins,” just what are the odds that that first protein that you made would still exist so many trillions times trillions times trillions of years later???  Just what are the odds that you would have all 4,000-plus proteins available at one time and in one place to make the assembly of that simplest cell possible???

There’s just not enough time literally in the whole universe just to form a stupid bacterial cell, let along a human being with those ten amazing organ systems.  Do you get this blatantly obvious scientific fact???

How long did it take for the intelligent, creative designer to build each of those hearts?  Half an hour, maybe?  Maybe a little longer?  But without that intelligent, creative designer building those hearts out of the plan of an intelligent mind, those individual components of each of those hearts would have sat wherever they originally were for all eternity and nothing would have ever happened.

And you have to be a particular type of fool not to comprehend that.

Atheists/secular humanists/evolutionists tell us that time is their best friend in the world and that time can do ANYTHING.  Well, I’ve got news for you: time actually CAN’T DO ANYTHING: it just sits there, doing nothing except ticking moments away.  Anyone who has ever had a deadline and not intelligently worked on producing whatever was necessary to accomplish that deadline surely understands that time doesn’t solve anything.  In fact, the 2nd law of thermodynamics (popularly known as entropy) actually guarantees that, far from being the best friend, time is in actual scientific fact our worst enemy:

Entropy: lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.

The more expansive definition of the law of entropy doesn’t make it any better.  Evolutionists are not only wrong; they are laughingstock wrong.  Because things DON’T become more ordered over time; they become more DISORDERED.  If you tell your kids, “Don’t worry, your room will clean itself,” you’re a perfect candidate for atheistic evolution.

So, scientifically – let’s NOT be fool enough to think that actual, legitimate SCIENCE actually in any way, shape or form supports godless evolution – there simply scientifically isn’t enough time in the universe for even the most simple possible cell to evolve.  And if you believe in the miraculous nature of time to achieve anything rather than accepting the legitimate science that says the opposite, well, the biblical term “fool” most certainly applies to you.

One other factoid to prove what FOOLS those who embrace godless evolution truly are: there are 100 TRILLION cells in the human body that are more complex than that simple bacterium that even all the time in the universe couldn’t produce.

And not only are there one hundred trillion cells in the human body, but it gets WORSE for you godless fools: because there are 200 different kinds of cells in the human body — in the brain, liver, bone, heart and many other structures — must somehow those 200 different kinds of cells must be read off a different set of the hereditary instructions written into the DNA.  Or else nothing happens.

Scientist Michael Behe describes what he labelled “irreducible complexity.”  He’s entirely right.  You must have the entire living system present all at once or nothing will happen.  His opponents are driven entirely by atheism and ideology that has perverted their “science.”

Some of the “greatest” evolutionary minds, such as Harvard professor Stephen Jay Gould, believe in something called “panspermia,” which is the recognition of the obvious REALITY that evolution is completely impossible and therefore punting to a belief that life was seeded here from “somewhere else” that is of course scientifically impossible to prove (or disprove).  This becomes an anti-scientific religious faith offered in the name of “science.”  But it is nothing short of “junk science” that the most brilliant so-called “scientists” acceptThe same way that Darwin’s “falsifiability” is a totally bogus joke that any but the most ardent propagandist ought to recognize:

Ann Coulter pointed it out with the false claim that evolution was “falsifiable” versus any religious claim which was not. Darwin said, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.”

And Ann Coulter brilliantly changed a couple of words to demonstrate what a load of crap that was: If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by God, my God theory would absolutely break down.”

In other words, evolution is no more “scientifically falsifiable” than even the most ardent young earth creationist claim. Their standard is impossible to disprove. I mean, you show me that God “could not possibly have” created the earth.

The whole way they sold evolution was a lie.

You go down the list of “human evolution proofs” that the entire “scientific community” swallowed much the way restaurant pond goldfish or koi that greedily swallow children’s lougies because they stupidly think it’s food: Piltdown Man.  Nebraska Man.  Peking Man.  Java Man.  Not only did all of these “fossil finds” turn out to be hoaxes, but they were entirely obvious hoaxes right from the get go.  But science had already become a philosophy, and an idiotic philosophy at that.  And so “scientists” not only accepted these “evidences” but embellished upon them, creating entire worlds out of their moral idiocy that were as false as the fake proofs of evolution upon which they depended in the first place.

The evolutionary “scientists” disallowed any theory of origin that could in ANY way, ANY shape or ANY form depend on a Creator God because they claimed it wasn’t “scientifically falsifiable” and therefore not a legitimate scientific theory.  But they have broken their own rule over and over again in their rabid determination to impose their philosophical atheism onto science.  Science that ONLY formed as a result of Christian premises that the universe was NOT random, but was ordered, and which came as a result of a Creator’s Mind, which in turn formed the mind of man in His own image; such that human beings could explore God’s creation and think His thoughts that He formed us to think AFTER HIM.

Let me continue.

There are 100 trillion cells in the human body and there are 200 different kinds of cells in the human body.  And those 200 different cells combining for a total of 100 trillion cells must all somehow precisely correct form at the precisely correct time according to an incredibly complex and complicated plan with virtually no room for error whatsoever.  Or nothing happens.

Further, we talk about DNA.  Well, DNA is an alphabet of three letters which combine to form “words,” not a language.  And even if it WAS a language it would STILL require an intelligent communicator to use words in the proper order at the proper time such as not to result in gibberish.  I know that for a fact because I’ve repeated what Google translated my English sentence into, and my Spanish-speaking friends started laughing.

I’ve described it as “the marching band argument.”  Let’s say you are part of a marching band, and you want to form the words, “Go Trojans!” on the playing field.  Do you just count on that to happen all by itself, do you?  Do you think if you just randomly have the individuals march around and form the letters all by themselves – especially if you don’t even tell them they’re supposed to form anything or tell them what letters they are supposed to form – that will somehow happen, do you?  If so, congratulations!  You ARE fool enough to believe in evolution, after all!  Rather, no!  There must be an intelligent designer issuing commands and sequences that the band members follow at the appropriate times.

It also turns out that DNA – even when the entire code is there and is correct in every way (which obviously to anyone with common sense doesn’t happen without an intelligent programmer) – needs a driver, the way a computer program needs a driver to install it.  Again, maybe you have DNA; so what?  How does it DO anything?  Something must be present to communicate the incredibly sophisticated instructions of the DNA to the incredibly sophisticated physical body so that the entire sequence installs correctly.  DNA demands a driver, and personally, I believe that driver is the soul of the organism.  God creates the soul in the womb at conception, and the soul drives the installation of what that body will become.  In a fallen, sin-tainted, imperfect, degraded world, that process doesn’t always unfold as it was designed to unfold, but something like this God-ordered and God-ordained system far more accurately describes the procedure of life than any other even comes close to.

Allow me to offer a theory from “science” to prove my case: recapitulation.  Because these people will believe ANYTHING rather than face the truth, according to Colossians 2:8; according to Romans 1:22; according to 2 Thessalonians 2:11.  Because they are ultimately fools, and it is the nature of the fool to believe lies and reject reality.

And so, continuing, just as the individual members of the marching band “install” themselves at a particular location at a particular moment even as all the other individual members of the band are swirling around him, and so on and so forth until the living letters are formed with all the individual band members having precisely arranged themselves to form those letters, so also the soul serves as the driver of the body around it, driving the DNA and unfolding the installation sequence at a marvelously precise symphony of order.  As the Scriptures say, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14).

And the ONLY reason the so-called “scientific community” will not accept this is because it would then point out the godless EVIL of abortion.  The scientific method was formulated by a publicly confessing Christian in the heart of Christendom out of uniquely Christian presuppositions.  Every single major branch of science was discovered by publicly confessing Christians.  But just as every single Ivy-League university was formed out of evangelical Christian presuppositions but BETRAYED those values, so also modern “science” has betrayed the very noble system that it once was.

And so I look at those hearts that are composed from a tiny number of components by comparison, I look at the heart-shape they were arranged in BY AN INTELLIGENT DESIGNER; and I am not a fool.  And all I can do is fall on my knees and thank the Living God who created me in His image (and that’s a whole other issue that screams for the reality of God as a moral fact) that I am not a fool.

We talked about the ten systems of the human body.  We have not yet discussed the human mind.  Let’s examine the problem of mind from mindlessness:

“But it should be pointed out that consistent atheism, which represents itself to be the most rational and logical of all approaches to reality, is in actuality completely self defeating and incapable of logical defense. That is to say, if indeed all matter has combined by mere chance, unguided by any Higher Power of Transcendental Intelligence, then it necessarily follows that the molecules of the human brain are also the product of mere chance. In other words, we think the way we do simply because the atoms and molecules of our brain tissue happen to have combined in the way they have, totally without transcendental guidance or control. So then even the philosophies of men, their system of logic and all their approaches to reality are the result of mere fortuity. There is no absolute validity to any argument advanced by the atheist against the position of theism.

On the basis of his won presuppositions, the atheist completely cancels himself out, for on his own premises his arguments are without any absolute validity. By his own confession he thinks the way he does simply because the atoms in his brain happen to combine the way they do. If this is so, he cannot honestly say that his view is any more valid than the contrary view of his opponent. His basic postulates are self contradictory and self defeating; for when he asserts that there are no absolutes, he thereby is asserting a very dogmatic absolute. Nor can he logically disprove the existence of God without resorting to a logic that depends on the existence of God for its validity. Apart from such a transcendent guarantor of the validity of logic, any attempts at logic or argumentation are simply manifestations of the behavior of the collocation of molecules that make up the thinker’s brain.”  — Gleason Archer, Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties, 1982, pp. 55-56

If you are an atheist, mindlessness is what you proudly assert that you came from – and mindlessness is what you ARE.  An orderly, rational mind – even MORE than those ten amazing organ systems in the human body – CANNOT be a disordered product of disorder, a random result of randomness.  And so if you are an atheist, you are not only a fool, you are a MINDLESS fool.  Because you stand on an altar of random, disorganized mindlessness and pronounce yourself brilliant.

The Book of Romans starts out this way:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.  For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. — Romans 1:18-23

That last verse, verse 23, is especially interesting to me in this context, because it so directly applies to the atheist, the evolutionist.  The primitive peoples practice something called “ancestor worship.”  And why SHOULDN’T they worship their ancestors?  That is where they came from!  And what does the evolutionist claim he or she comes from?  From “birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.”  And so just as the modern-day man hordes money and buys things with it and by any theological standard worships these things as “idols” yet denies his idolatry, the evolutionist is an “ancestor worshiper” who denies his ancestor worship.  But it’s there, every bit as much as the primitive aboriginal, squatting in front of his hut in the mud.  And these fools actually call US “backward”!!!

We have not advanced as a species; we have degenerated and become worse and worse according to 2 Timothy 3:1-7.  According to the Book of Revelation which prophetically describes the depths of depravity that modern man is well on his way to degenerating into.  And the only things that have “improved” merely speak of our idolatrous nature and our determination to have “things” as part of our modern version of “the rat race” otherwise known as “keeping up with the Joneses.”

Now, I am an evangelical, fundamentalist Christian.  And I am such FOR A REASON.  And that reason is because the world conforms to the Word of the Creator God who clearly made it all.

Isaiah 40:8 states, “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”  But contrast that with evolution and the bait-and-switch pile of garbage that it is.  Think of how toxic cultures and societies twist and distort reality.  Think of Stalinism: the entire culture – science, academia media, you name it – was profoundly perverted into an instrument of deception and even terror.  Oh, yes, you can rightly believe this officially State Atheist regime taught Darwinism and evolution as part of THEIR indoctrination propaganda.  And the same thing is happening here.

I look at the world around me and recognize the profound reality of the formulation as expressed by theologian D.A. Carson:

“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, He would have sent an economist. If He had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, He would have sent us a comedian or an artist. If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, He would have sent us a politician. If He had perceived that our greatest need was health, He would have sent us a doctor. But He perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death; and He sent us a Savior. ”

And the basic fact is that all of these leaders of our culture that Carson’s quote finds lacking have directed their middle finger at God and screamed NO!  WE are the solutions to all the problems plaguing the world that we re-formed in OUR image!

I reject them and those who share their worldview.  And I embrace the God who fearfully and wonderfully formed me in His image; and who created me in His image so that one day, in the fullness of time, He could assume my image.  And live a perfect life in my place, representing me, representing all humanity.  And then, because He was God and death can’t hold God in the ground, rose again bodily from death as remarkably testified to by modern science to offer eternal life to any who would just believe in Him and follow Him.

Oh, yes, we went from easily disproving Richard Dawkins’ “Infinite Monkey Theorem” – that is easily falsifiable in its argument that a monkey randomly typing letters for an infinite period of time could reproduce the works of Shakespeare; to manufacturing an incredibly loaded and contrived “experiment” to prove lunacy really IS evolutionary reality, after all (that and the belief that there is no difference between a human-programmed virtual monkey which performs as programmed to perform VERSUS AN ACTUAL MONKEY); to deciding to banish Shakespeare from our universities (see also here and here to note that this is a widespread phenomenon on American college campuses) because apparently Stalin was right all along.  Because rabid intolerance is clearly our direction.

The Bible said this day would happen.  It told us the last days would happen.  They are happening today just as the God who declares the end from the beginning declared in His Word.  But the same fools who deny God to begin with refuse to accept plain reality.

God created the actual human heart, a heart capable of beating more than 100,000 times a day and more than 3 billion times as a machine the size of a fist pumps 3 supertankers (a million barrels!) worth of blood.  And I assure you that that was FAR more marvelous than the creator of the ten hearts the pictures of which I posted.

And I believe and declare that God is the LORD, and that His ways are superior to any scientist, or any rock star, or any movie actor, or any politician, or any other imposter offering himself or herself or any rival thing or idea in the place of God.  And I declare that His Word stands as true forever.  And I declare that in accordance with prophecies offered centuries in advance by a God who declares the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done (Isaiah 46:10), God sent His Son to live and to die in my place for my sin, and to rise gloriously again so that I can be with my Creator forever and ever.  And that every rival to that truth is a lie from the devil and from hell.

What’s Wrong With ‘White Pride’???

November 18, 2016

What’s wrong with black pride?  Or Latino pride?  Should we demonize people who celebrate these things?  The left and their propaganda allies in the media certainly don’t think so: in fact, they have led the way trying to instill all this “pride” in race, in gender, homosexuality.  You name it, the left wants you to have “pride” about it.

But pride in being white?  In being WHITE???  That is so…. so … so RACIST!!!  You HATER!!!

But wait a minute.  Wait a damn minute!!!  What about black pride and Latino pride???

Oh, that’s different.  You see, those people vote for us.

I came across an article in the Los Angeles Times entitled in the print edition, “‘White Pride’ Awakened” and that title all by itself cuts a decidedly visceral picture.  You know, Hitler, the Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, that sort of thing.

And, you know, THAT doesn’t sound good, I mean, right?

And I’ve got my Christian Scriptures which state things like:

“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us, for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.'” — Acts 17:24-28

Opening his mouth, Peter said: “I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in every nation the man who fears Him and does what is right is welcome to Him.”  — Acts 10:34-35

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  — Galatians 3:28

Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all.  — Colossians 3:11

But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. — James 2:9

But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.  1 John 2:11

So I see the phrase “white pride” and I get more than a little uncomfortable.  I have a sense that no, I’m not supposed to have “white pride,” pride on account of my race.

I was raised that way.  I was taught that way all my life.  My Christian faith assures me that it is right to think that way.

And yet – in its own twisted, despicable way – that is EXACTLY what the Democrat Party has banked on me thinking and believing and feeling for going on fifty wicked years.

I’m not supposed to go to “white pride.”  It’s wrong.  But THEY are free and even RIGHTEOUS for creating and pursuing and institutionalizing “black pride” and “La Raza” (“the RACE”), and for that matter allow me to include gays and women and every OTHER group that Democrats have assembled into a coalition based upon “Us Vs. Them.”

Why in the hell is their racial pride somehow correct and my racial pride is incorrect?

And it’s in that word “correct.”  As in “politically correct.”

Political correctness is the ability to hold two or more mutually contradictory things in your head at the same time without your head exploding.  So, for example, take the Ku Klux Klan, and take the historic FACT that the Ku Klux Klan was began as the terrorist arm of the DEMOCRATIC PARTY and that the Klan was still so deeply embedded into Democratic Party politics that even decades into the 20th century the Democratic National Convention was called “Klanbake.”  And the fact that WHICH PARTY last had a U.S. Senator who had been an “Exalted Cyclops” and a “Grand Kleagle” of the KLan???  And the fact that WHICH party’s candidate kissed and endorsed that high-ranking racist???  And then take into the fact that the Klan is now “right wing” and it is all somehow the party that waged war to defeat both the racist Democrats and their racist Klan that is to blame for the Ku Klux Klan.

Political Correctness is a fairly new term, but it dates back to 1949 when Orwell coined the term “doublethink” for his book about government run-amok titled “1984”:

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

So the same people who say that “white power” is the height of Nazi evil celebrate the “power” of every other race BUT white people.  While arguing that they of course cannot be racist for their racist doctrines that merely turn the race doctrines of the Nazis upside down all in the most cynical ideological way to create a political machine based on a race coalition.

And through the sledgehammer weapon of “political correctness” we who are “them” are not allowed to think of ourselves as “them” even as they themselves create the categories and viciously use them for political and moral attack.

Political correctness is not just an attempt to make people feel better. It’s a vast, coordinated effort on the part of the secular humanist, socialist left to change Western culture as we know it by  using rhetoric to redefine it. Early Marxists in Russia designed this game plan long ago and liberals continue to execute the tactic today: to control the argument by controlling the “acceptable” language. Those with radical agendas understand the game plan and are taking advantage of an oversensitive and frankly overly gullible public.

The central tenet of Political Correctness is that language shapes/controls thought and thought shapes/controls actions. And if you control what you say you ultimately control what you think and how you act. And there’s a good way to do that and a very, very bad way to do it. And the left is destroying the first (the GOOD way to control yourself and improve yourself through religion and morality) while using mass-mind-control techniques by shaping the culture and political discourse to THEIR narrative via the tactic of PC.

And Christians in specific and white people in general were literally TRAINED to participate in their own racial and cultural destruction if the other side is utterly amoral and willing to exploit race as a political weapon.  Which the Democratic Party has done TO THE HILT OF THE SWORD.

And white people finally assembled something of a rally and followed the leadership of Donald Trump to finally fight back fire with fire.

Jesus prophesied this: He said that in the very last days before this present age ran its course as it prepared for the coming of the beast:

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.Matthew 24:7; Mark 13:8

The word translated as “nation” is the Greek word “ethnos” (Strongs # 1484).  It is the root word from which we get the English word “ethnic.”  Its primary sense is ETHNICITY or RACE.  In the last days, ETHNIC GROUP shall rise against ETHNIC GROUP as we have never seen.

And that day is coming and is already here.

What is interesting is that the Nazis weren’t merely “racist” in the sense of “white people.”  Not at ALL!  The intellectual Nazis had a VERY SPECIFIC group of white people in mind: ARYAN white people, and even more particularly the Nordic/Germanic peoples.  The Nazis held that the Nordic race was the most superior of the “Aryan race” and therefore properly constituted a “master race.”  They categorized people in a “Us Vs. Them” formula that rated races from “Aryan” at the top to “Non-Aryan” at the bottom and grades in-between where one was a little more or a little less “Aryan” to not Aryan at all.  They were determined to subjugate the French (who were Normans when the Nazis were proudly Anglo-Saxon) and they were even more viciously hellbound to subjugate the Russians who were Slavic white people.  Hitler thought he could reach out to Winston Churchill and Great Britain on the basis of common Aryan racial identity, but Churchill and the English didn’t want any part of Hitler’s racial theory, enraging the dictator.

It was a racial theory that Hitler himself (who actually almost certainly had Jewish blood in him) and most of the people at the top of the Nazi hierarchy failed to racially qualify for.  But abject moral and intellectual hypocrisy never stopped people like these.

In my first sentence I mentioned “Hitler, the Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, that sort of thing.”  It is fascinating to understand that the Nazis were SOCIALISTS and therefore on the far leftist end of the spectrum.  You could call them the right wing of the extreme radical left, but unless you are talking about communists who are on the very farthest fringe of leftism, the Nazis were WAY over on the side of the left.  And the Ku Klux Klan without any question in its origin was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party that fought a vicious Civil War for the purpose of preserving human slavery.  The Democratic Party was still so completely and entirely indoctrinated with racism and the Ku Klux Klan that the 1924 Democratic National Convention was called “Klanbake.”  You can look this history up for yourself.

When you evaluate the racist history of the Democratic Party, you ought to truly be ashamed if you are a Democrat.  I’ve written about this many times before:

I mean, maybe you can go back to President Andrew Jackson and his vicious genocidal Trail of Tears.  But Andrew Jackson was a Democrat, too.  Or you could go back to President Woodrow Wilson who literally fired all the blacks in federal government and RE-segregated the military.  But you guessed it – Democrat.  We can go back to January 26, 1922, when Democrat Senators filibustered a Republican bill that had passed in the GOP-controlled House to make LYNCHING a federal crime.  Or we could mention the vile and evil political party that had a national convention in 1924 that was so dominated by the Ku Klux Klan that it is today known as “Klanbake.”  But, oops.  That was the 1924 DEMOCRAT PARTY CONVENTION.  Or we could consider that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a bigger racist for put American Japanese citizens in camps for nothing beyond racism.  Or for allowing the infamous Tuskegee experiment to begin under his presidency.  Or allowing his New Deal program to be used to help Democrat-supporting labor unions hurt black people and shut them out of economic success.  Or for the fact that far more REPUBLICANS than DEMOCRATS voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act and had to overcome a Democrat filibuster to do it.  And in the same way, the Republicans were instrumental in passing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  But, well, you know…

and:

We’ve got the racism of Bill Clinton who said of a black man named Barack Hussein Obama, “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”  And clearly wishing for those good old days, so that his wife could win the Democrat nomination.  More recently, Bill Clinton – the former leader of the Democrat Party – said of former Ku Klux Klan Kleagle and “pillar of the Senate” Robert Byrd, said:

“They mention that he once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, and what does that mean? I’ll tell you what it means,” Clinton said. “He was a country boy from the hills and hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected. And maybe he did something he shouldn’t have done…”

Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was a “fleeting member” of the Ku Klux Klan the way Kobe Bryant was a “fleeting member” of the Los Angeles Lakers.  Former Exalted Cyclops and Kleagle Byrd wrote:

“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

He wrote:

“The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”

He personally filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act on behalf of the Klan when he was nearing fifty years old.

So why was it that Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was “MAYBE” wrong for being a member of the Klan? The answer is as simple as it is frightening: because it’s always been okay for the Democrat Party to use racism and race-baiting and racial segregation in order to drive their agenda home.  And that is just as true today when the Democrats buy off blacks through welfare so they will act as the human shields of the Democrat Party as it was when the Democrat-created Ku Klux Klan was riding around with torches.

The Democrat Party is the historic proponent of racism in this country (see also my comment here).  Oh, they changed their tactics from threats to bribes, but they never abandoned their racist “progressive” values.

And that’s the hook: the Democratic Party has ALWAYS been racist to its core.  They just found a different tactic to employ their doctrine of racism as vicious political weapon.  After the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act – which was a DEFEAT for the congressional and senatorial Democrats – they got together in conclave and sharpened their knives and devised a new tactic: to ostentatiously pull of the trick that hey, leopards really CAN change their spots.  And so they began to devise increasingly RIDICULOUS “Civil Rights” acts that flew in the face of the Republican values of individual liberty and individual moral responsibility that led them to fight to end slavery in the 1860s and led them to pass the Civil Rights Act of the 1960s.  With that century in-between being nothing short of hard-core Democratic Party RACISM.  Until they realized it wasn’t working any more and created the “plantation” tactic whereby they got blacks BACK on their plantation by being the NEW party of racism that continued to use race as a weapon, but this time in a different warped way.  Now, in the way that ignorant and helpless non-combatant Muslims are the human shields of the terrorists who live among them, blacks are the ignorant and helpless human shields of the Democrat Party that exploit them primarily in inner cities and yet somehow after a CENTURY of Democratic Party control have NEVER done anything to actually help these people whose vote they pimp and exploit to the machine agenda.

The Democratic Party created a HARD-CORE racist agenda based primarily upon pitting blacks and Hispanics against whites.  It worked great for them.  Because white people had been taught that it is WRONG to be racist, to organize for a racist purpose against another race.  Only the most wicked, vile people on earth would do such a thing.

Oh, only the most wicked, vile people on earth … and Democrats who played the damn race card every year of my entire life – and I’m in my fifties now.

And it worked for Democrats.  Because the Republican Party was terrified to actually do or be what the Democrat Party branded them and demonized them and slandered them as being every single election anyway whether the Republicans did it or not.  Republicans were terrified to degenerate into the vicious racial tactics that Democrats had turned into an art form.

Until Donald Trump saw the devastation that Obama’s racist policies had wreaked on working-class whites and he saw his opening.

And the rest is damn history.

Damn the Germans for initiating the concepts of total war by targeting civilian population centers, of weapons of mass destruction through gas warfare as military tactic, etc, and force the Allies to determine that what is good for the goose is good for the gander and RETALIATE in kind.  And DAMN the Democrats for initiating the concept of race as a political weapon and assembling groups of people on the basis of “identity politics” and creating the infamous “Us Vs. Them” tactic to win by division and increasingly angry and bitter and hateful division.

You live by the sword and eventually you will PERISH by the sword.

And there is now no factual question whatsoever that under the RACE PIMP-IN-CHIEF Barack Obama the Democrat Party has perished by its own race sword as white people finally rose up just as Democrats had taught them to do by inciting and flaming the hate of blacks and Hispanics against them.

Under Barack Obama, the House Democrats lost 68 seats since he won election in 2008.  They had a filibuster-proof majority when Obama came, and now the Senate is firmly in Republican hands.  Thanks to Obama and the arguably even more vile successor in Hillary Clinton, Democrats have lost the White House.  But its when you look more closely that the ugly truth of abject rejection of the Democrat Party is truly and stunningly seen: Democrats have lost NINE HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN SEATS in State legislatures since Obama became president.  Consider:

Obama’s record for losses, at least through the 2014 midterms, is historically bad having overseen two horrible midterm elections for Democrats. Overall, Sabato wrote, Democrats during Obama’s presidency lost 11 governorships, 13 U.S. Senate seats, 69 House seats, and 913 state legislative seats and 30 state legislative chambers. (Our analysis of legislative seats is off from Sabato’s by three. The small discrepancy is likely due to run-offs and recounts.)

The shedding of U.S. House seats, state legislative seats and statehouse control is at least twice the average two-term losses from Truman through George W. Bush, Sabato said.

There are now only FOUR states in the entire NATION that have a Democrat governor and a Democrat legislature.

Look at the damn MAP, Democrat.  See the damn PICTURE!!!:

2016-election-map-by-county

I see a Republican nation infected and scarred by ugly pimples of diseased blue puss, that is what I see.

When Donald Trump targeted that Hispanic judge Gonzalo Curiel – albeit in a rather unfortunate way – I asked this question:

How do you feel about members of the white race determining to advance fellow members of the white race in exclusion of all other races???

How many Democrats have cheered the prospect of a “Congressional White Caucus” the way they have done with the Congressional Black Caucus?  How many liberals find themselves celebrating the “diversity” of a “National Association for the Advancement of Caucasian People” the way they have cheered the “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People” (a.k.a., the NAACP)???  Do white people get to have a WET channel – White Entertainment Television – and hand out awards exclusively to white entertainers and praising them for exalting the white race the way the other side does with BET???

For that matter, how many reporters are focusing on the racist angle of Hispanics waving Mexican flags, burning American flags, and then chasing down, surrounding, and beating white people at Donald Trump events???  How is it NOT racist when Mexican-flag-wielding Hispanic thugs beat down white people at political rallies they barged into to suppress???

Why is it okay to be a hard-core racist, providing that the race you are working to advance is a member of the Democrat Party race coalition???  Why does “racism” only work one way (i.e. the way that favors and ALWAYS favors the left)???

And the people and the electorate have spoken, and we now have our answer: white pride is back.

And if you are a Democrat and you think it’s terrible, get in your car, drive to the nearest field where a farmer is operating a combine, and throw yourself into its gears: BECAUSE YOU ARE ENTIRELY TO BLAME FOR IT AND YOU HAVE BEEN ENTIRELY TO BLAME FOR YOUR ENTIRE DAMN LIFE.

White people finally got fed up of the vicious, ugly, cynical racist double-standard hypocrisy that is at the VERY CORE of the Democratic Party.

And they rose up to protect their children and their grandchildren from Democratic Party HATE.

And you now face a damn choice, Democrat: you can stop being a divisive, Us-Vs.-Them-pimping, identify-politics racist hate-machine slave, or you can now choose to rise up as Democrats and end the race-pimp machine that is now at the cockroach soul of your party system.

As long as there is a Black Congressional Caucus, as long as there is a Black Lives Matter movement, as long as there is a La Raza, as long as there is a United Negro College Fund, as long as there are black colleges and universities – and there are more than ONE HUNDRED of them and tell me how liberals would react to a hundred damn WHITE colleges!?!? – then do not dare to even TRY to condemn us for our newfound “white pride.”

The Imperial Japanese admiral who masterminded the Pearl Harbor attack said in its aftermath when he realized the American carriers had not been hit:

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

The sleeping giant, once awakened, saw Pearl Harbor and saw the Rape of Naking and the Bataan Death March and was filled with the terrible resolve – a RIGHTEOUS resolve – to rip and shred chunks of the empire the Japanese won by viciousness until they could first firebomb Tokyo and ultimately drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

And they were RIGHT to do it, just as white people are right to rise up against the Democratic Party hate machine now.

For my part, I would love the race war ignited and inflamed by the Democratic Party and their racial coalition began to finally end and we could get back to just being AMERICANS.  But I will NOT stand down while hate triumphs.  And we saw during the campaign as Democrats viciously physically attacked Republicans just for attending peaceful GOP rallies; we saw that that political violence was INTENTIONALLY ORGANIZED AND PLANNED by a career Democratic operative who served on the Clinton campaign and who visited the White House to coordinate with the Obama machine 342 times; and now we are seeing the party of naked fascism violently rioting as they refuse the results of democracy all over again now.  And I will stand up against the party of hate, the Democrat Party.

White Americans are beginning to have that same terrible resolve because of YOU, Democrat.  You have awakened a monster, Democrat, and now you have a choice to make that had you been moral and decent people you would not have ever had to make in the first place.  Because it sure looks like Republicans aren’t going to let you lecture them for doing what you’ve done for fifty damn years any more.

My guess is that you’re not going to listen to wisdom BECAUSE YOU ARE INCAPABLE OF WISDOM.  So you will fulfill the prophecy of Jesus and double-down on your racism as tactic even as you scream about the terrible resolve of the sleeping giant you woke up in 2016.

 

Could Donald Trump Actually Be A Great President? A Few Thoughts On A Man I’ve Dumped All Over.

November 10, 2016

Before I get to Trump let me reflect on the Obama presidency.  I’ve said it more than once.  And I actually openly PREDICTED it in June 2012: that OBAMA was the #1 engine of destruction of the Democratic Party because he governed as a fascist emperor rather than as a president representing an intentionally divided democratic republic.  When Obama won election in 2008 and the Republicans came to him hats-in-hand willing to compromise, Obama wouldn’t have it.  Instead he said, “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”  And that was his tone for the remainder of his presidency.

ObamaCare was crafted behind closed doors as a poison pill for Republicans such that not one single Republican – even the moderates – could not vote for it.  And that was Obama’s ONLY actual legislative accomplishment.  At the time ObamaCare passed, Democrats held the White House, had a MASSIVE majority in the House, and actually held a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.  As a direct result of the bitterness and already-perceived-failure of ObamaCare, Republicans regained control of the House in 2012 and then took over the Senate in 2014.  And the same Obama who said that elections have consequences dismissed the two massive midterm election victories for Republicans.  And Obama governed as a tyrant king through executive orders and never got anything accomplished.  And now all those sweeping executive orders are going to be blown away like fartgas in the hurricane and Obama’s legacy will come to nothing aside from the fact that he took his party from riches to rags.

What did Democrats do after their 2012 shellacking?  Did they listen to reason?  Nope; instead Harry Reid and Senate Democrats went nuclear and imposed their “nuclear option” by changing the Senate rules to favor themselves and squelch the voices of the people who elected Republicans to represent them.  And Democrats proceeded to use the nuclear option as an everyday tool to impose sweeping changes in the EPA rules that would NEVER have passed muster in any kind of decent Congress.  And so in 2014 Republican voters rose up in righteous rage and took the Senate away the same way we took the House away in 2012.  After the Democratic Party proved its name was the ultimate oxymoron and these fascists had nothing whatsoever to do with democracy.

In the current election just past, Democrats had everything in their favor particularly in terms of taking over the Senate, with 24 out of 34 Senate Seats that were up for grabs being held by Republicans and with many of those seats in purple or even blue states.  Everyone predicted that the Democrats would retake the Senate because Democrats would be able to ride anti-Trump sentiments to victory.  And they utterly failed.  In the House they were expected to take twenty seats and a BAD night would be only twelve seats; and what happened?  They took only six seats, which is HALF of what would have already been a bad night for them!  What was supposed to be a huge night for Democrats was a huge night for Republicans – and it’s all on Obama and the Hillary Clinton candidacy that ran as Obama’s third term.

Democrats lividly told us that it was the Republicans’ duty to get completely in line and abandon their platform and their values and do things the way Obama wanted.

Let’s watch these people prove that they are NOTHING but the very worst kind of naked hypocrites as they insist that it is only right, only decent, that Donald Trump compromise with them the way that Barack Obama NEVER ONCE compromised with Republicans as he shoved one poison pill after another after another down our throats and inspired the most bitterly partisan and divided climate in American history.

That’s history now.  Literally.

Today is a new day, a new opportunity for America.

One element that has to go if we are to have any chance of moving successfully forward is racism.  And I’m NOT talking about “racism” the way hypocrite Democrats keep falsely framing it.

I am one of tens of millions of Americans who are beyond disgusted and nauseated by the Democrats open embrace of naked racism as the fundamental core of their electoral and governing strategy while demonizing white people for even THINKING about doing what they brazenly do.  It was perfectly okay for Democrats to encourage – “incite” is actually a better word – blacks and Hispanics to vote on a nakedly racial basis AS a race; but these same hypocrites went apoplectic at the thought that Donald Trump would actually encourage white people to do what Democrats had encouraged THEIR races to do for YEARS.

Democrats long ago opened the floodgates of racist politicking.  And for once that flood swept over them as tens of millions of white people began to realize, “We have children too.  We have plans for the future, too.  We have dreams and thoughts and feelings, too.  And WE’RE going to vote for OUR rights and OUR survival!”

We USED to all be human beings, created in God’s image.  But abortionist Democrats crushed that in every way it could BE crushed.  Now we are the things that were lucky enough to make it out of the womb, lucky that our parents for whatever reason decided NOT to murder us and rip our bodies apart and suck us out of mommy’s womb with a medical vacuum cleaner.  And those same Democrats turned us into black and Hispanic against white and cynically demagogued and exploited every difference.

That history is all still very much with us.

And the question is, can Trump do better?

I haven’t said very much that is positive about Donald Trump.  If you were to read every article on my blog, you would notice that the ONLY things I’ve said about him were NEGATIVE.  But I realized that as bad a leader as Donald Trump might be, Hillary Clinton had ALREADY proven that she would be a vastly WORSE leader.  And I always viewed this as a binary choice between two unfortunate alternatives.

But now that Donald Trump actually did it, I ask myself in some hope for the future, what if I was wrong?

COULD Donald Trump actually be a good president?  If we’re lucky, even a great one?

Two things have come to my mind:

The first is that Donald Trump, in spite of the idiotic crap that more than occasionally came out of his mouth, actually has a history of surrounding himself with good, capable, competent people.

Now, having said that, you would never believe it reading the media accounts.  They say the OPPOSITE.

But let’s face it: WHAT THE HELL DO THESE POMPOUS TURDS KNOW?  Just keep in mind that these pseudo-intellectual fools just got proven wrong in absolutely EVERYTHING they confidently told us.

Donald Trump has actually built a huge, successful empire.  That is simply a fact.  He has been a major force in business for four decades.  How many businessmen can you name where everybody knows his or her name the way you can say “Beyoncé,” “J Lo,” etc.  Not many.  And if you believe as most on the left believe that he is some kind of dumbass, he clearly must have done it by riding the coattails of all the good people he picked to be his sub-chiefs.

As one example, Donald Trump groomed his children to succeed him not by giving them silver spoons for pacifiers, but by putting them to work beginning at the very lowest levels of his businesses and forcing them to be exposed to every facet of his operations from the very ground up.  That’s NOT the act of a self-entitled, spoiled-rotten fool.

Donald Trump did not like the direction his campaign was going and made a decision that began with Trump’s “infamous” “You’re fired!” and ended with Kellyanne Conway who became THE FIRST WOMAN TO SUCCESSFULLY RUN A VICTORIOUS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNShe had NEVER BEEN the manager of a major campaign before.  The man who is despised as THE worst misogynist who ever lived chose THE FIRST WOMAN to EVER run a Republican presidential campaign.

Let me go not to a leftist side but to the “Anyone-But-Trump” fiasco that National Review became in describing the choice of Kellyanne Conway.  When Trump picked Conway, they came to the conclusion that he wasn’t even actually TRYING to get elected.

Trump chose well.  Everyone else chose … poorly.

Again, now that all the “experts” and all the damn liberal “intellectuals” who sold you a bunch of lies have been proven WRONG, WRONG, WRONG by this election, please allow your mind to be expanded by listening to somebody for once in your life who was NOT just refuted by reality.

If Donald Trump surrounds himself with quality leaders, he can have a truly great presidency IN SPITE OF HIMSELF.  Because, yes, he can come out and publicly say something stupid that really doesn’t mean anything aside from a chance for the liberal mainstream media to attack him; but behind the scenes good policies are being intelligently implemented by capable administrators.  And that latter thing will ultimately matter far, far more for the nation than the former thing.

The second thing that gives me hope about Trump is the way he won.

You tell me who predicted it.  Besides me – and my pointing out that the polls were POOP – and a very few people like me.  The “conventional wisdom” was that Trump was raw meat and Hillary Clinton was a hungry pit bull.

I for one never knew what would happen, but what I DID know was that liberal progressives never reflect reality; rather, they seek to IMPOSE it by framing a false narrative and then getting people to buy into their bogus false manufactured narrative.  They go from “There is no reality, only perception” to “perception is reality.”  And through media, through Hollywood, through the music industry, through the liberal universities, through mass culture, THEY are the ones who get to frame our perception.  And “political correctness” is their tactical weapon whereby people are not even allowed to THINK in terms that would undermine their false narrative as any thought outside of their box is demonized and slandered.

And I have said time and time again, BULLCRAP to that.

It boiled down to who was going to actually show up and vote, and in what numbers different groups of people who had been pitted against each other mobilized.

And the thing that now impresses me about Donald Trump is that he relied on his gut instincts – whereas Hillary Clinton has no instincts whatsoever and relied on focus group and an army of staffers and researchers and pollsters – to successfully identify his voter base and then personally communicate to those voters.

And that’s impressive.  Especially when you consider the massive and enormously successful political machine that Hillary Clinton had at her disposal.

Hillary Clinton had an ENORMOUS infrastructure advantage.  Her staff MASSIVELY DWARFED Trump’sHillary outspent Trump $2-$1.

In August, Hillary outspent Trump on ads $52 million to $0 as she tried to Blitzkrieg her way to the presidency by framing Trump as a vile, horrible, hateful caricature.

Donald Trump had NO ground game, no turnout operation.  Whereas Hillary was busing people to the polls in droves and using every turnout gimmick known to mankind – even Beyoncé and JZ – to get people to vote for her.

Hillary Clinton had every single advantage there was by any measure of any previous campaign.  And Trump still managed to kick her ass in the states that most mattered.

What Donald Trump pulled off is THE biggest political upset in American history.  What the Chicago Cubs did in their 1-3 comeback to win the World Series for the first time since 1908 wasn’t even CLOSE – at least in terms of sheer national importance OR surprise.

Hillary Clinton decided to hold her victory party at a venue featuring a glass ceiling.  Because, after all, she was the first woman to shatter it.

And her instincts were COMPLETELY WRONG.  As her own top advisors lamented in their emails that we know about courtesy of WikiLeaks.

“We’ve taken on a lot of water that won’t be easy to pump out of the boat. Most of that has to do with terrible decisions made pre-campaign, but a lot has to do with her instincts,” Mr. Podesta wrote.

“You know I’m not a sycophant to you by any means. But the thing that makes me most confident she will prevail is that you are there,” Ms. Tanden, now the the co-chair of Clinton-Kaine Transition Project, responded. “Almost no one knows better [than] me that her instincts can be terrible.”

Do you seriously wish THAT creature was making the most important decisions in the world, do you???

Democrats ran a campaign based on the fallacy of the false analogy.  Donald Trump is Hitler, that sort of crap.  No he’s NOT, you stupid dumbasses!  And the ONLY candidate who actually PROVED she would do horrible things and make horrible decisions in high office is Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Democrats ran a campaign of slander suggesting that Donald Trump was all of these horrible leaders of the past and it’s an obvious lie; whereas if you want to talk about PRESENT REALITY, consider that whereas Hitler murdered six million innocent human lives in the gas chambers, Hillary murdered SIXTY million innocent human lives in the abortion mills.

Trump’s entire political career is FUTURE and HASN’T HAPPENED YET.  Hillary’s entire political career is DEMONSTRATED PAST REALITY and it is OVER.  And we all – Republicans and Democrats alike – ought to be singing, “Ding-dong the witch is dead!”  Because she was nothing but an anchor and a political albatross on not only the Democratic Party, but on the United States of America.

There is absolutely no legitimate question right now whether Donald Trump has powerful instincts.  And unless you believed all along that he would win, he’s got better damn instincts than YOU.

And he certainly has better damn instincts than ANYBODY in the political class; he proved that positively by being right and by winning and they proved it negatively by being wrong and by losing.

This dig isn’t misogyny: I GLADLY would have voted for Carly Fiorina over Donald Trump if I had had the chance.  But Hillary Clinton ran on “the war on women” and she was probably the world’s worst mouthpiece for that slogan.  Her ENTIRE CAREER was derivative on men; first on Bill Clinton who propelled her into politics and then on Barack Obama whose machine she inherited and whose presidency she ran on.  On paper she was this and she was that; in reality she never accomplished one single damn thing.

I’ll take Donald Trump instead.  And I’m not even TALKING about her corrupt and frankly criminal behavior; I’m merely identifying her “terrible instincts” and her “terrible decisions” that her left even her own campaign manager smacking his forehead.

I assure you, America.  No matter what happens, WE ARE FAR BETTER OFF THAN WE WOULD HAVE BEEN.

If you have ANY fear of God at ALL, I suggest you PRAY for Donald Trump.  Pray that he have the humility of spirit that his predecessor appallingly lacked.  Pray that he have the wisdom that his predecessor appallingly lacked.  Pray that he is able in these next sixty days to assemble capable leaders and administrators who will be able to push and pull America back on track.  Ultimately it is GOD who is sovereign over the affairs of men:

  • He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. — Daniel 2:21
  • Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. — Romans 13:1
  • I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. — 1 Timothy 2:1-2

If you want that “peaceful and quiet life,” I more than suggest that you begin to pray for Donald Trump whether or not you voted for him.

Because like it or not, he is your next president.

All Lives Matter. But POLICE Lives Matter: In Fact Police Lives Matter Most Of All.

October 21, 2016

 

Last night I attended a “Glow Walk” to honor our police and take a damn stand against a depraved media liberal culture that routinely undermines and even demonizes them.

I put it this way to the chief who shook my hand and thanked me for coming: I pointed to the American flag over our heads – which was at half mast over the police station due to the assassination-murder of two police officers in an adjacent city – and I said, “I came because of THAT.”  Because every time I drive by and see that flag at half mast it makes me sick, it makes me seethe with rage, because I know what it represents.  We have to choose sides right now in this nation; and I’m choosing my side.  I’m choosing to side with law and order and justice and decency over murderous ideological vermin and the cultural elites who are supporting those vermin.

For the record, I have had several opportunities to spend time with my chief of police.  He is a truly wonderful man.  I have met his wife, and they are a loving, caring, dedicated couple.  He is a professional: if he were serving another city, he would serve that city to his utmost.  As it is, he is serving MY city.  And while I don’t get to see him work in the office as the chief, he never seems to miss an opportunity to be an ambassador for his department.  He is always affable, always listening, always caring.  And our crime rate has dropped dramatically in the time he has served.  We are lucky to have this man as our chief.  Period.

EVERY human life matters.

But ONLY people who are pro-life have any right whatsoever to say that.  Because ultimately either EVERY human life matters, or NO human life ultimately matters.  Because when you start parsing out human life, and arguing that this life matters, this one doesn’t: this human life is sacred because mommy wants her; but with this human life we can stick a tube in her head and suck her brains out and then crush her skull with forceps and pull her mutilated body out of what God intended to be the safest place for her on earth.  When we can do something like that, then NO LIFE MATTERS.  Because we ALL start from that same exact place in the womb.  And according to science – according to the branch of science which is specifically charged with classifying organisms into their proper categories – we never become more “human” than we are from the very moment of conception.

A zygote, in her mother’s womb, is:

homosapiens

I created that image just a few moments ago, under what I believe was divine inspiration.  Because the science on the left and the image of the baby in the womb on the right scream the identical same message: that baby in the womb is HUMAN.  A child in the womb is HUMAN by virtue of her parents; she is a BEING by virtue of the fact that she is a living thing: SHE IS A HUMAN BEING.

We are all equal as humans because we all have the same human nature which we had at the very first moment of conception.  And either human life matters because it’s human life or it doesn’t.  And if it doesn’t, then whoever is in power gets to start playing games with what ought to be sacred and sacrosanct.

Either that unborn baby’s life matters, regardless of her level of “intelligence” or “ability” or “accomplishment” or spatial location, or else there is nothing logically or morally preventing us from going the way of the Nazis, or the Stalinists, or the Maoists, or the Khmers rouges, or the North Koreans, etc. and just start killing by the millions, by the tens of millions, every single human being who fails to measure up to our a priori determination of what a valuable “human” is.

Senior citizens’ lives don’t matter: they are no longer producing, they are soaking up benefits that others could be putting to more productive use and to pay out those benefits undermines more viable “humans.”  Or black lives don’t matter: too many of these individuals are on welfare, producing nothing, only costing society, and now to make matters even worse they are creating societal unrest.  And so on.  Look at that damn cripple over there in that wheelchair.  What a waste of flesh!  Look at that dwarf!  It’s like a human head on a monkey body!  And therefore, “The members of these groups whose lives don’t matter should be euthanized in the most efficient and inexpensive process possible, so that more fit, more productive “humans” may live and flourish.  Which is the very heart of evil.

According to the so-called “science” of Darwinism, that is actually a FAR more scientifically valid argument than murdering healthy babies who have their entire lives before them and have unimaginable potential.  After all, who can demonstrate that we didn’t abort our next evolutionary link that would have made us better – and now our entire SPECIES will perish because we didn’t evolve when we needed to.  And all because we kept aborting our next step to evolutionary greatness…

It is an incredibly arbitrary, and murderous act to kill human beings merely because they have not yet reached the stage that they most certainly WOULD have reached had they merely not been killed yet.  Why don’t we kill five-year olds?  What good are THEY?  What do THEY produce?  I mean, hell, let’s wipe out the teenagers; they are FAR more trouble than they are worth according to most objective standards!!!

EVERY human life matters to anyone who truly believes the Bible, because the Bible declares in Genesis 1:26-27 that:

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

The Bible is crystal clear regarding the unborn and their precious humanity:

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.  Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it.  You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.  You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.  How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!  I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me! — Psalm 139:13-18

When it comes to humanity, any morally sane being would err on the side of humanity; which is to say that no one would EVER harm something that even MIGHT be an innocent human life unless they were either truly insane or genuinely evil.  So if you are a mother, and you have several children, and you hear your oldest daughter say, “Mommy, can I kill this?” from behind you while you are cutting up vegetables, YOU LOOK TO SEE WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT.  Because she might be talking about her little sister.  And in the same way, anybody who says, “Well, who is to say WHEN “human life” begins, so let’s leave it up to anybody who wants to make their own choice one way or another,” is no morally different than the Islamic State caliphate allowing its adherents to decide whether Yazidis are “human” or not: and you go ahead and kill ’em as you want to if you don’t think they meet the standard.

It’s particularly easy for Bible-believing Christians – who were demonized by liberal media culture well before that culture began undermining and demonizing our police officers – to realize that Jesus loves EVERYONE regardless of their race or anything else that has nothing whatsoever to do with our fundamental humanity as His image-bearers:

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world.
Jesus died for all the children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus died for all the children
Of the world.
Jesus rose for all the children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus rose for all the children
Of the world.

ALL LIVES MATTER.

I still recoil in SHOCK at the fact that the Democrat Party actually forced a candidate running for president – and the following statement destroyed that candidate’s chances of winning the nomination of the Democrat Party – to apologize because he made the “mistake” of saying that “ALL LIVES MATTER” to a group of liberals who demanded that only BLACK lives matter.  Those liberals can play all the damn pseudo-intellectual word-games they want; they can equivocate all they want; but the same Democrat Party that booed the statement that “all lives matter” is the same party that has systematically exterminated ten times more innocent human life than the Nazis did during the Holocaust.

EVERY human life is of what morally intelligent philosophers describe as “incommensurate value.”  There is no price, no amount of gold or gems or any other form of value, that can compensate for the life of a human being.

For the record, the death penalty itself – which is BIBLICAL – is itself a testimony of that above fact: if you murder another human being, there is literally NOTHING you can do or give that will compensate for the sheer magnitude of your moral crime.  YOU took a life – you STOLE a life – and YOUR life shall be taken in return.  The scales of justice will be BALANCED.  And that act of JUSTICE in recognition of the value and the magnitude of innocent human life will become an object lesson to us all.

All lives matter.  Even the lives of those who have been murdered, who have been expunged, who have been aborted.

But police lives matter MORE.

Why do I say that?

It is not that police lives are more valuable because police are somehow better “humans.”  That is not true.  Police officers are as “human” as the rest of us.  They too were zygotes, were embryos, were fetuses, were infants, were toddlers, were teenagers, and capable of making all the mistakes and errors that are prone to frail, imperfect, fallen humanity.

Police officers sweat.  Police officers feel fear.  Police officers have families and they want desperately to see their children grow up and grow old with their loved ones.

Police officers are human.  Nothing less.  Nothing more.

But a police officer wearing the badge, wearing the uniform, bearing the weapon that he or she is uniquely entitled to bear because that officer has been given the trust of a society to serve and to protect that society, becomes something even more special, even more sacred, to the flourishing of that society.

If I am murdered, it is a heinous crime.  Nothing on earth can purchase my life back, or properly compensate for the fact that I am now dead because someone made the decision to murder me.  And the person who murdered me ought to be hunted down by the police, placed on trial for his or her life by a court of law according to our laws, and imprisoned and ultimately executed after the proper appeals process determines that no grievous mistakes were made in the trial that would make that execution an act of injustice.

That is true of every single American: red, brown, yellow, black and white; male or female; young or old; disabled or abled; rich or poor.  Because all are precious in God’s sight.

But if a police officer is murdered in the line of duty, the statement I made above about the dignity and value of all human life is true, but there is something even beyond that: that officer’s murder represents an attack on our very system of justice itself, upon the society that has created that system of justice and ordains it, and literally an attack upon human civilization.

Police work has always been dangerous.  Officers pursuing fleeing suspects or attempting to apprehend dangerous criminals could very well use deadly force against the police.  But today we are seeing something radically different: we are witnessing ideologues assassinating police officers from complete ambush.

It’s literally like Vietnam where soldiers could never know who the enemy was or for that matter modern Iraq and Afghanistan where terrorists plant Improvised Explosive Devices to kill or maim without warning.

Police must therefore treat everyone like a potential assassin – which guarantees more shootings as terrified police with hair triggers try to stay alive knowing a target is on their back and they can be murdered for no reason other than they are police officers at any moment.  Which guarantees more shootings as frightened police see guns where otherwise they would have exercised more restraint.  Which then gives the ideologues more “justification” to kill more police.  Which the ideologues knowingly intend to create a vicious cycle.  And everyone who kills a police officer in the name of “Black Lives Matter” is in actuality guaranteeing that more black lives will be killed by terrified police.  And they actually WANT that!

Furthermore, the police – being “human” – will withdraw from communities that do not support them.  They will stay in their cars in the inner cities and innocent black people who could have been saved will die because the police are too frightened of being either killed or prosecuted for doing their jobs.  That too is part of the vicious cycle.

And this vicious cycle can only stop when society treats police with the respect they deserve and need to do their vital jobs.

As I said before, our police officers are human.  They are in a very nearly impossible job, trying to serve justice in situations that are so depraved, so confused, that it becomes impossible for any other being but God Himself to be able to know what to do.  Then you add in the next human factor of fear: that officer is in a situation in which his or her very life is at stake if he or she hesitates to pull that trigger at the right moment when the subject is about to take that officers’ life.  Did that officer shoot before he or she should have fired?  People come in after the fact who are themselves completely SAFE at that point and make that determination.  Which is why YES, it is REASONABLE to give that officer of the law the benefit of the doubt in complex situations.

The Bible, the Word of God, is crystal clear in this:

Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.  Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.  For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.  Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake.  — Romans 13:1-5

The police bear the sword of government for our own protection, for our own good.

That comes from the pen of St. Paul, who was beheaded by the unjust system of justice of the very government whom he was upholding.  Because under divine inspiration, St. Paul understood that, even in a wicked regime like ancient Rome, or modern-day North Korea or Iran, the police largely exist to ensure a stable, peaceful society.  God ordained them for that role.

For better or worse, this is the government we have, and if we are to change that government, or that system of justice, we are to do it PEACEABLY and through legitimate means.

And so yes, we all agree that there are times when an officer acts unjustly, when an officer acts in a depraved manner.  There are also times when JUDGES act in such unjust, depraved manner.  And there are times when the system that appoints those judges acts in an unjust, depraved manner.

By the very standards I have set above, when an officer, or a judge, or a politician, commits a violent act under the color of sacred authority, that officer should face even GREATER penalty.

But it is NOT up to ANY individual in ANY society to make that determination for himself or herself, that an officer of the law, that an officer charged with justice and peace for a society, should be killed.  Because that is the path toward anarchy and nihilism and the end of civilization.

All lives matter.  But no life matters more than the life of a police officer who is wearing the uniform and the badge and the weapon serving and protecting his or her community to the best of his or her ability.

And that is why I support and honor my police officers.

And anyone who claims otherwise is an agent bent upon the destruction of our society and everything it stands for.

As a military veteran, I urge veterans to see our police officers and introduce themselves and say, “Thank you for your service.”  Because police work is literally taking place in a war-zone, a modern-day battlefield, today in America.

 

 

 

Hillary’s Top Staff Demonizes Christians: God Damn America & The Antichrist Presidency

October 13, 2016

Imagine if Trump had used the phrase “needy Latinos” and the media got ahold of it.

But it was the Clinton team that did that.  So you have to search for that from anywhere BUT the mainstream media.

If you have any fear of God AT ALL, if you have any love for the United States of America AT ALL, you will NOT vote for Hillary Clinton.  And frankly you will suck it up and choose the lesser of the two evils that we have to choose from as our next president.

We had just found out about the savage, vicious hatred that Hillary Clinton’s entire inner circle have toward evangelical Christians and Catholics and even Hispanics:

[…]

In the exchange, Mr. Halpin mocks media mogul Rupert Murdoch for raising his children in the Catholic faith and said the most “powerful elements” in the conservative movement are all Catholic.

“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy,” Mr. Halpin said.

“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they become evangelicals,” Ms. Palmieri responded.

“Excellent point,” Mr. Halpin wrote back. “They can throw around ‘Thomistic’ thought and ‘subsidiarity’ and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they’re talking about.”

The advocacy group CatholicVote.org called on the Clinton campaign to fire Ms. Palmieri.

Hillary Clinton has already called half of her opponents’ supporters ‘a basket of deplorables’ and ‘irredeemable,’ and now it comes out that her campaign spokeswoman dismissively question[ed] the sincerity of Catholic Americans’ faith,” said Brian Burch, the group’s president. “Had Palmieri spoken this way about other groups, she [would be] dismissed. Palmieri must resign immediately or be fired.”

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican who is Catholic, also blasted the Clinton campaign.

“If anything, these statements reveal the Clinton campaign’s hostile attitude toward people of faith in general,” Mr. Ryan said in a statement. “All Americans of faith should take a long, hard look at this and decide if these are the values we want to be represented in our next president. If Hillary Clinton continues to employ people with biased and bigoted views, it’s clear where her priorities are.”

[…]

Although Hispanics have been key to Mrs. Clinton’s voting coalition, they, too, were demeaned by Clinton campaign officials. In an August 2015 message to other Clinton aides with the subject line “Needy Latinos and 1 easy call,” Mr. Podesta lays out a strategy for getting former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, former Energy Secretary Federico Pena and other leading Hispanic Democrats on board with Mrs. Clinton’s presidential bid.

Mr. Podesta also referred to Mr. Richardson as “a d—k” but said it would be valuable to have him as a surrogate.

Perhaps least surprisingly, the emails prove once again that the Clinton campaign had little respect for Mr. Sanders‘ supporters. Messages show clear coordination between Clinton aides and supposedly neutral officials such as the Democratic National Committee, including Donna Brazile, now the interim chairwoman.

Party leaders also worked with the Clinton campaign to trick Sanders backers into believing they had won concessions from the Democratic establishment.

In a March 20 message, former party official Mark Alan Siegel is seen offering a plan to reduce the role of Democratic superdelegates in future elections. Although the proposal was sold to Sanders voters as an attempt to make the presidential nominating process more of a grass-roots endeavor, the email raises serious questions about whether the entire effort was just a smokescreen to assuage angry progressives.

“I’ve lived through many national conventions and have found that it’s critical that all delegates, especially those representing losing candidates, emerge from the convention feeling that they have won something, achieved something tangible,” Mr. Siegel wrote in the message to former Clinton chief of staff Tamera Luzzatto. “I think this is terribly important especially with people like Bernie’s sometimes self-righteous ideologues. We want them to go home happy and enthusiastic in working their asses off for Hillary.”

Mr. Siegel went on to explain that by reducing the role of superdelegates in the future, Sanders supporters could claim a victory that would have no impact on the Clinton campaign’s victory in this cycle.

“Here’s my idea. Bernie and his people have been bitching about super delegates and the huge percentage that have come out for Hillary. … Why not throw Bernie a bone and reduce the super delegates in the future” to only elected Democrats? he wrote. “So if we ‘give’ Bernie this in the Convention’s rules committee, his people will think they’ve ‘won’ something from the Party Establishment. And it functionally doesn’t make any difference anyway. They win. We don’t lose. Everyone is happy.”

The 716 voting superdelegates in the Democratic primary overwhelmingly supported Mrs. Clinton, drawing charges from Mr. Sanders and his backers that the entire process was unfair.

Had this kind of hate and bigotry been captured on the part of Donald Trump’s campaign toward ANYONE, the New York Times and the mainstream media would have been calling for his head on a pike.  But it’s leftist hate and bigotry and it’s Hillary Clinton’s campaign, so it’s all right.

Democrats disingenuously talk about “separation of church and state,” a phrase that is NOT in ANY of our governing documents and which they cite completely out of context in a dishonest and cynical maneuver to remove God from the public sphere.  But we see a rabid violation in the intent of the Clinton team to use the State to “fundamentally transform” the church:

A newly leaked email shows Hillary Clinton’s current campaign chairman John Podesta and a Left-wing activist casually discussing fomenting “revolution” in the Catholic Church.

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church,” Sandy Newman, president and founder of the progressive nonprofit Voices for Progress, writes to Podesta in an email titled “opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing.”

The emails were leaked in the third round of releases of Podesta’s emails by WikiLeaks.

Newman, who is Jewish, admits he does not know much about the Catholic Church and isn’t volunteering personally to subvert Catholic teachings. “Even if the idea isn’t crazy, I don’t qualify to be involved and I have not thought at all about how one would ‘plant the seeds of the revolution,’ or who would plant them.”

In response, Podesta assures Newman to rest easy for he and his progressive pals have already created organizations explicitly designed to infiltrate the Catholic Church with progressive ideology, though he cautions that the time may not be right for full revolution —just yet.

“We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up,” Podesta writes.

The conversation further reveals the contempt with which radical progressives view Catholics and the Catholic Church. On Monday, WikiLeaks published an email showing Democratic operatives mocking conservative Catholics.

WikiLeaks emails show reporter agreed to let Clinton campaign cut quotes before story ran

A scholar at the Left-wing Center for American Progress emailed Podesta in 2011 bashing then-Fox News CEO Roger Ailes for his Catholic Faith.

“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith,” John Halpin wrote to Podesta, and Jennifer Palmieri, now the communications director of the Clinton campaign. “They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”

Palmieri, agreed.

“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” she wrote. “Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”

These people know better than you.  They should rule over you.  If you oppose them, they should be able to crush you, crush your family, crush everything you believe is sacred, crush everything you teach to your children.

The fact that these people weren’t fired the day they WROTE these emails proves Hillary is rabidly anti-Christian, all her lies to the contrary.  But this story has been out for days now and all these wicked secular humanists who falsely claim to be “Catholic” or “Christian” are still in power.

Because they are with Hillary and Hillary is with them in the pursuit of the Antichrist.

Meanwhile basically the entire FBI and even the entire lower-level of the Justice Department wanted to put Hillary in prison.  But the corrupt, power-hungry powers-that-be wouldn’t have it:

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.

A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”

The FBI declined to comment directly, but instead referred Fox News to multiple public statements Comey has made in which he has thrown water on the idea that politics played a role in the agency’s decision not to recommend charges.

Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be in the White House; she should be in the Big House doing hard time, breaking big rocks into little rocks.  At least, she should do it for two minutes until her diseased body collapses.

These people have contempt – naked contempt and outright hate – for everything that most Americans stand for and believe in.  But none of the rules that apply to the rest of us apply to these people.  They can say or do anything and get away with it because a corrupt world system is joined to a corrupt world propaganda machine a.k.a. “the mainstream media” and the rest of us are led by the nose and duped by lies.

These people are transnational.  They don’t care about America.  They care only about world socialism and the power of their beloved State over you and your family and your lives.

It’s Star Wars, and the republic is about to hand over all power to the Dark Emperor.  Only it’s real life, and the Bible prophesied it 2,000 years ago and said we were heading for the Antichrist.

 

 

What REALLY Matters And How Should We Decide What Really Matters? Ask The Right Questions And Pursue The Answers With Passion!!!

September 30, 2016

How should you live your life?  What should you believe and why should you believe it?  What values should you cherish and why should you cherish them?  Is there a God, to give life meaning, or is it all just random and therefore ultimately all meaningless and purposeless and valueless?

Do you ever think about that?  You know, for longer than the commercial break at some point during your favorite television program?

So many people just never bother.

It’s kind of interesting, the question-the-Bible thing: there comes a point where someone OUGHT to have questions: giving your life to Someone Else is not an easy proposition. Even Jesus told us we need to count the cost. But there comes that point when you ask your questions and you have an open heart to an ANSWER and you have your greatest questions ANSWERED. And you decide to take your stand on what you believe, what you have come to believe is true based on your own investigation.

That’s exactly what I did.  I was raised in a Christian home, but when I was in the Army, my faith was eroded by the life I was living and then it was ultimately mangled. I got out of the Army spiritually broken. And I lived my life like a pagan for YEARS.

But the backslidden Christian is the most miserable person on the face of the earth, because on the one hand you can’t enjoy sin (because you’ve got the Holy Spirit in you constantly comparing your thoughts, words and actions to the Truth as you keep hearing a voice that says, “This is the way, walk in it“); and at the same time you aren’t living a pure, righteous life that honors God and cannot enjoy any of the benefits of the Christian life.  And so you are “double-minded, unstable in all your ways” (James 1:8); you are wavering between two opinions (1 Kings 18:21) – and you need to make up your mind and decide who or what you will follow.

I came to realize that the person who follows himself and his own path and his own way is a selfish, self-centered narcissist: let’s talk about me for a while. And let’s KEEP talking about me; in fact let’s ALWAYS talk about me and NOTHING BUT me, because that is ultimately all that is important in this universe.   Is that seriously all there is to life?  Is there nothing more?  Is there nothing beyond me that is more important than me that ought to shape who I am and who and what I become?  And I came to a point where I needed to live for something beyond me, something greater than me. Something I could marvel at.

Another thing that came to me was a simple question: if there is no God, if the evolution that I always hear about is true, then what is right and wrong, and who decides? Another way to put it is, “How can you be a bad atheist?” Now, the ONLY way you can be a “bad atheist” is to believe in God; there ARE no moral requirements to being an atheist and no possibility for any moral requirement. You are nothing but the product of your DNA and your experiences that were outside of your control; more, you think whatever the hell you think merely because the atoms in your brain randomly happened to arrange themselves however the hell they arranged themselves.

I want you to understand very clearly where I am going here: I am making the point that when you consider the Bible, or Christianity, or religion, you are NOT doing so in a vacuum.  No, you are considering one alternative from the rest of the alternatives.  And so if religion is wrong, then embrace the alternative and embrace its consequences.  And understand what those consequences are.

There IS no “right” or “wrong.”  Not if Darwinian evolution has any credibility.  And it turns out the consequences of that alternative truly matters.

Now, SOMEBODY – you know, like Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or somebody like that – manufactured some rules for the entire herd to follow.  And the herd has to follow these rules.  And if you don’t follow the rules of the herd, you don’t get to be in the herd.  Or at least the herd frowns on you and says you aren’t a very good herd member.  But there are HERD animals and there are PREDATOR animals that HUNT and KILL and EAT the herd animals and do so without any shame or regret or guilt whatsoever.  And you can alter or edit or change this morality willy-nilly, it turns out – such as when Obama was opposed to gay marriage but then was suddenly for what he’d been against – his contortions are actually even worse than that – but now it is incumbent upon all humanity to get in line with Obama or else be deemed “intolerant” and “bigoted” and “hateful.”

Because whatever is deemed “politically correct” is whatever the hell somebody else says it is until it isn’t that any more.

Now, I reject Obama and his bullcrap-bogus-pseudo morality and I reject political correctness and there had BETTER be some better reason why I ought to be “moral” – whatever the hell “morality” even is – or else in the words of that song, “Let the bodies hit the floor…”

And let it be YOUR body, or the body of your wife or your kid.  Because nobody and nothing matters.  This whole universe is nothing more than something that accidentally exploded into existence and will ultimately be swallowed up by the same meaningless process of nihilism that spat it out in the first place.

Me personally, I’ve always most identified with the predatory animals. Ask me what all my favorite animals are and you won’t hear me telling you, “Well, I like sheep and cows…” Nope. I favor the wolves and the lions that chase down and kill and eat their fill and are content and happy with a lifestyle that really kills the buzz of those helpless herd animals.

So start running, herd animals.  Because we’re hot on your heels and we mean to chase you down and drag you down and end you and your morally idiotic evolution only justifies our doing it to you.

Rape.  Burn.  Slaughter.  Loot.  It matters not.  For the madman who rips out your still beating heart with his bare fingernails is no morally different than the firemen who went up the stairs to their deaths during the hell of 9/11 when everybody else was fleeing as fast as they could.

I recall the line from the movie Alien:

Ash: You still don’t understand what you’re dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.

Lambert: You admire it.

Ash: I admire its purity. A survivor… unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

Why not be that way? Be pure, be a survivor, unclouded by bogus conscience, remorse, delusions of morality that have nothing to do with the real essence of human existence if evolution has any validity whatsoever.

Dylan Klebold, one of the infamous Columbine killers, wrote in his journal that he and his accomplice Eric Harris were “god-like” and more highly evolved than every other human being. I remember hearing one of their quotes: “We are no longer human, for we have evolved beyond human morality.”

They wrote in their journals (and pardon the language but it is theirs and not mine): “Why give a fuck what Jesus would do?” And, “I blew off his head with one shot. I am god. He died.”

And why, indeed?  I mean, other than the fact that WWJD is a much better acronym than WGAFWJWD.

And I demand the evolutionist give me a detailed scientific answer based on a chemical analysis of our damn brain cells that definitively proves that we should not all go thou and do likewise.

Show me how the sociopath is NOT the most evolved life form.

And evolution is a farce, or you prove they HADN’T evolved beyond human morality. Because evolution teaches me why I should murder and rape and steal to get whatever I want; and it does NOT teach me why I should love or cherish or give my what is mine for the good of someone who doesn’t even share my DNA.

I could on that simple evolutionary level be very content being a serial killer, a serial rapist, tracking down, stalking and HUNTING my human prey and satiating my own lusts, my own desires, doing my own thing my own way. If I want something, I ought to steal it. I have a lust for someone, I ought to kidnap and rape. If I don’t like somebody, I ought to hunt down and kill that somebody.

I can show you scholarly articles from evolutionists talking about rape as a simple adaptation to the requirements of natural selection and the survival of the fittest. Because evolution is all about spreading your DNA to the next generation – THAT’S WHAT MAKES YOU “THE FITTEST” BABY – and evolution doesn’t have any stipulations on how to do that. If it works, do it.

Last night I discovered and called in a bunch of stolen copper wire that somebody had stripped and sold. Why not?

At some point, I realized that if evolution were actually true, if there is no God who holds me accountable for my works, then anything is equally permissible. Not only is the torture-rapist-murderer no morally different from the Mother Teresa, but in fact the former is actually SUPERIOR to the latter; because the torture-rapist-murderer GOT IT and grasped the essence and the sheer absurdity of human existence and Mother Teresa was a stupid fool who made the wrong bet stupidly thinking there was some God at the end of the picture when there wasn’t. And now both people get the same dirt nap, only one of them lived their lives realizing all along that they would get that same dirt nap and lived their life consistently by that plan in a completely self-centered manner.

The sociopath is the true moral hero of Darwinism. Go thou and do likewise.

I always laugh when I hear the secular humanist and the atheist claim that religion is intolerance and mass murder.  Because they are the worst kind of ignorant fools and because the simple fact of the matter is that State Atheism has been responsible for the brutal murder of one hundred million just of their OWN people and JUST during PEACETIME alone.  Hey, you go ahead and add up the Crusades and the Inquisition and the witch burnings – which were all actually all more secular than truly coming from the Church, but that’s an argument for another day – and whatever you want – and you won’t even scratch the surface of what Mao and Stalin and Pol Pot and the Kims in North Korea did in their official state atheism.  And you can really and truly rack up a giant death toll when you add in the fact that according to the members of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle, he was a self-revealed atheist as well – and he started World War II and bears the guilt of the 60 million casualties from that war.  Then add to that terrible death toll another sixty million murdered innocent human beings just in the United States alone at the hands of secular humanists in their abortion mills.  And don’t even TRY to imagine what would happen if the secular humanists truly took power, because they would deliberately wipe out the vast majority of humanity in order to achieve their insane and evil environmentalist goals.

Jesus actually taught Christians to put away their swords, to turn the other cheek, to live in peace.  Because His Way was the anathema of the Way of evolution and natural selection and survival of the fittest.

And so, confronted with a very stark choice, something in me with every fiber of my being said NO this crap that I’ve been force-fed is NOT the TRUTH. There IS a way that we should live, a right way and a WRONG way. And each must have CONSEQUENCES. And if that ISN’T so, then don’t you DARE look down and judge the torture-murder-rapist who enjoys his “work” with that screaming woman or that terrorized little child.  Because he is only doing what is in him to do. If it feels good, do it, right?  Just like the homosexuals and the abortionists and the dope users say to justify their “choices” that fly in the face of everything every culture before them previously ever believed.   There is no more wrong with what they do than what the heyena does when they chase an exhausted animal down and start literally eating it alive.  And who the hell are YOU who DON’T have that person’s DNA and DIDN’T live his life and have his however-twisted experiences to judge that person???

Because either God created me in His divine image or I am no different from all the other animals that are the same mindless product of the exact same mindless evolution.  Human beings are either the one or they are the other.  Period.

Now, I want you to realize that this wasn’t just an intellectual game for me: I got out of the Army a trained killer, a highly trained expert stalker of human beings, a soldier thoroughly trained to deploy weapons specifically engineered to exterminate human beings like bugs – and more than a little bit bitter besides – and I was at that point where I could have gone either way.  And why NOT go to the dark side unless there was a genuine, profound difference between the two sides???

Unless there is a God who truly stands above ALL of us as our Creator and has the RIGHT to make the rules for ALL of us and hold ALL of us accountable to His rules that emerge from HIS character and nature and purpose for creating us in the first place.  And I was accountable to that Creator and no eternal dirt nap: the choice is either everlasting heavenly reward or everlasting hellish suffering.  And you get to choose which.

I mean, just so you know, I was trained by my own government how to kill my fellow genus homo and species sapiens with my bare hands, with a knife, with the bayonet, with pistols, with rifles, with machine guns, with hand grenades, with grenade launchers, with mortars, with rocket launchers, with the M47 Dragon, and even with the M220 Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided missle system.  Not that I have most of those things now.  And I was trained how to parachute out of a perfectly good airplane so I could – on command – kill my fellow human beings like bugs within 18 hours notice anywhere on planet earth.  The question whether I would kill other human beings wasn’t an “academic” one; if and when I was activated, I would accomplish my mission that I was trained and indoctrinated to accomplish.  And by “indoctrinated,” I mean mentally and morally conditioned to sight in on an enemy and gently squeeze the trigger.  So I can state categorically that I was a trained killer; the lion and the wolf have nothing on me.

You have likely heard that slogan, “There are no atheists in foxholes.”  I’m sure that’s not an absolute statement, but it does underscore a very valid point: soldiers are people who for the most part need to believe in absolutes and objective values and transcendence in order to function.  And that’s because, for example, we have to deal with the reality that there is indeed an “absolute” difference between being alive and being a screaming, dismembered, disemboweled pile of bloody, quivering guts.  We believe in objective values because we need to believe that we’re living and dying for some kind of ultimately meaningful purpose; we need to know our sacrifice ultimately means something.  And we tend to believe in transcendence because we are people who may have to go through that moment of knowledge that in a very short time we are going to be in a battle and we may not live through it and we want to be in heaven.  And those three reasons are why there aren’t very many atheists in foxholes.

And so it was on that background that I began my investigation as to whether or not I should believe in God and what God I should believe in if there IS a God.  And also consider the consequences if there is NOT a God.

I mean, how ought a US-government trained super-predator live?

Now, the people who lived half-ass lives, who are afraid one the one hand to be what the Obama’s and the Clinton’s who make up all the politically correct rules for society call “intolerant” or whatever, but who at the same time don’t with any passion follow God or His ways, I GOT NO TIME FOR THEM.

Maybe that disgust at those who won’t get off the fence comes from my experience serving on a team where it was “us” and “them” – and “they” were trying to kill “us” and if “us” had any desire to live whatsoever we better kill “them” first.  That’s certainly one very good way to get at the essence of how black-and-white reality truly is.

Get on one side or get on the other side, choose this day whom you will serve (Joshua 24:15). The person sitting on the middle of the teeter totter of life is totally useless. And the people who just can’t sit themselves on the ends just muck up the whole operation of the teeter totter of life.

And that’s exactly the way God designed the world: there is heaven on the one side and there is hell on the other. There isn’t any “middle place” where the useless people who never had the balls to make up their damn useless minds go.

Jesus says that there are the sheep (the righteous) and there are the goats (the wicked). He says He will divide them into two and ONLY two groups, and He will say to one, “Enter into the joy of your Master,” while to the other He will say, “Depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness. I never knew you.”

Jesus says in the Book of Revelation, “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.” — Revelation 3:15-17.

And yes. That’s the way it works in God’s universe.  And to quote J. Vernon McGee, “you might have a better plan than God, but what you DON’T have is your own universe.”

God wants PASSION in His pursuers. He frankly wants us to follow Him with all our heart and all our soul and all our strength and all our mind (Luke 10:27) or else hey, please don’t bother.

And so it was with that big picture – one way or the other, the light side or the dark side – that I began to investigate whether there is a God and which God I should follow if there is.

I actually gave the Darwinists their first shot. I mean, if they could prove their case, then why bother looking at useless religions that talked about fairy-tale gods???

And so I read the hot-off-the-press at-that-time atheist work, “The Blind Watchmaker,” from cover to cover.

Right off the bat, I came across this memorable quote from Dawkins:

Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose. — The Blind Watchmaker (1996) p.1

And Dawkins also said in The Blind Watchmaker:

“Animals give the appearance of having been designed by a theoretically sophisticated and practically ingenious physicist or engineer…” — (p. 36)

Okay, so I’m hearing the man CONCEDE the major point that HIS SIDE has the BURDEN OF PROOF because he concedes that prima facie – on its face to be accepted as correct until proven otherwise – admission that it DOES in FACT appear self-evident that things were DESIGNED by a creator with a purpose. Just as St. Paul confirmed to believers in Romans chapter one.

And I have two arms with opposable thumbs so that I can open the stupid fridge with my right hand and take out the gallon of milk or the six pack of beer with my left hand. Design and purpose, kids.  As in design WITH a purpose.

So Dawkins told us from the outset that the burden of proof was on his side to PROVE beyond any shadow of a doubt whatsoever that there is no Creator God and can be no Creator God. But as I read, do you know what I increasingly began to observe? That this man was an appalling moral idiot, and that what truly set him apart was the gargantuan arrogance of a genuine fool.

I found it interesting to learn that Richard Dawkins was not opposed to the idea of an “intelligent designer.”  Unless that intelligent designer turned out to be God.  Because ultimately the man is a anti-religious bigot and an intellectual hypocrite rather than any kind of scientist.

If the prima facie case rests with design and therefore Creation, then the sensible person believes that unless and until the alternative is PROVEN otherwise. And he proceeded to FAIL spectacularly by any standard outside of his own incredibly narrow-minded presupposed viewpoint that he holds a priori based on his narrow-minded speculations rather than any legitimate science.

Then I read a book that I got from the library called “Darwin’s Enigma” from a man named Luther Sunderland. And what intrigued me about that book was that it was written by a guy who had literally been hired by the state of New York for the purpose of ascertaining whether creationism was an acceptable teaching for public schools. And he talked to the leading evolutionists in the world as he compiled his research from that secular purpose. Some of the curators from the leading museums of natural history on planet earth were literally quoted as saying that evolution was NOT a legitimate scientific theory and should NOT be taught as a fact in the public schools.

So I believe as I ought to believe when I intellectually believe there is a God who intelligently designed us with a plan for His creation. And I believe what I ought to believe when I morally believe that there is a God who holds us accountable for how we live and how we act.

And then from that I began to study the world religions. I examined each one until it disqualified itself. But at the same time I had already determined that ONE of them must be the real McCoy.

I considered Buddhism and Hinduism. I considered Islam. The first two disqualified themselves on the intellectual level because who the heck instituted “reincarnation”??? Who built that thing? Who designed that system? And who made the rest of us that go through these endless cycles of reincarnation? And who was the Big Banger who made it all happen? They also failed on numerous moral grounds. You look at India and see the caste system and you know what I’m talking about; you see the millions of gods and the fact that evil and good are basically viewed as being two sides of the same coin and you see what I’m talking about.

It isn’t rocket science, kiddies.  God is either personal or impersonal: if He is personal, then Buddhism and Hinduism are false; if He is impersonal, then Christianity and Judaism and Islam are false.

And this is critical because it answers a fundamental question about the human race: either WE are personal or impersonal.  If we are personal, where do we get our personhood from?  How is it that we come to have free will?  Genesis 1:27 provides a very clear answer: “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Buddhism strictly denies the existence of human beings as “selves.”  This doctrine is literally one of the three marks of existence of Buddhism: Anattā (no-self, without soul, no essence) is the nature of living beings.  The other two are Anicca (impermanence, nothing lasts) and Dukkha (suffering, unsatisfactoriness is innate in birth, aging, death, rebirth, redeath – the Saṃsāra cycle of existence).  And scientific naturalism likewise denies the existence of the self, of the soul, of a “you” that is a permanent you, for what it’s worth.  According to these views, there IS no “you” inside you; there IS no free will; you are a strictly determined and strictly conditioned being with no soul.

Islam is mono-theistic, which is good. But from there it gets very, very bad very, very quickly. And the fact that today 99.99 percent of terrorist attackers are being committed by the most ardent followers of what Muhammad actually taught is kind of icing on that cake.  If you understand the dilemma of violence inherent within Islam – which is NOT shared by Christianity – it is frankly terrifying.  Islam specifically denies that God has a Son, so if Jesus is who the Bible declares He is, Islam is false.  And if Jesus is NOT who the Bible declares Him to be, then Christianity is false.

Each of the great religions of the world teach mutually exclusive truth claims: they can’t all be true or right.  You are a fool according to the rules of logic and reason to believe “all paths lead to the same God.”  Because no, they don’t.

And Jesus Himself ruled that politically-correct cultural relativist view that all religions were equally valid when He said, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

There are literally thousands and thousands of teachers and professors with PhDs who are literally presenting their students with intellectual gibberish when they teach the pluralistic universalism that is so common today.

Now, I want you to understand; I’m not micro-nitpicking at this point on ANY of my above investigations. I’m just trying to ascertain whether or not the BIG PICTURE is true. If the big picture is false, then all the tiny little details are false, too. Or, to put it another way: if the big picture is fake, who gives a damn about whether the inconsequential details are true or not?

So when I get to Christianity, it all ends up boiling down to one simple question: did Jesus rise bodily from the dead, as His disciples claimed? What’s the evidence for that central claim of Christianity? And if that big picture claim is false, then I frankly don’t give a flying damn about the Bible. But if it’s true…?

I dedicated myself to a study of the evidence about the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. And if you examine that claim with a halfway open mind, the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead is simply astounding and irrefutable. The bottom line comes down to this: there is simply no reasonable question that Jesus’ disciples believed with ever fiber of their being that they had seen Jesus alive after His crucifixion and death and burial. There isn’t a single New Testament scholar – Christian or secularist alike – who claims the disciples didn’t genuine believe they had seen Jesus alive. Their completely transformed lives and boldness in the face of certain persecution and even death confirms that fact. And in fact it is a historical fact that every single one of the apostles save St. John died as martyrs having traveled the known world to tell people about the Jesus they had personally seen alive after His death in confirmation of all of His claims of His deity and His purpose for coming into the world: to die for our sins and to rise again and take His sheep with Him to the Father in Heaven.

Find me one person who you know to have died for something that they knew for a fact to be false. Yes, we have a lot of Muslim “martyrs” who blow themselves up to kill “infidels” and we probably both agree these people are tragically wrong: but THEY believe what they’re doing is right and THEY believe in Allah. But you need to understand as you read the Gospel accounts: the disciples were in a unique position in human history: they were in the position to absolutely know for certain whether or not Jesus actually rose from the dead.

And every single one of them signed in their own blood their testimony that yes, they had witnessed it with their own eyes and they were willing to therefore lay down their own lives to carry their OWN crosses (literally the instruments of their death penalties) and die for their Lord who had already died for them and given their lives and their deaths meaning.

If Jesus died and rose again from the dead, Christianity is true and everything Jesus said is true and the Christianity that He founded is true and the Bible is true and that’s that. And He did and He did and He WAS true and Christianity IS true and the Bible that He affirmed is true and that’s that.

And to a man like me, that is all I need to tell me what I should live for and how I ought to live.

That’s the big picture. But there is so much confirmation in the little tidbits, too.

Just – and I mean JUST – watched a program called “The Fall of Jericho” on the military history channel I love to watch. And I watched a drama that has been played out over and over again about the accuracy and legitimacy of the Holy Bible. I couldn’t find the transcript of the program, but here’s a link that describes in even more detail what was presented.

So Jericho. Did it happen according to what the Bible claims in the Book of Joshua? Well, you wouldn’t believe how many times “scientists” said hell no. And they said it with no legitimate archaeological basis. An archaeologist named Garstang made it his life’s work to go through the layers of cities that Jericho had been built and rebuilt on in the 1930s. And he found something fascinating in one of those layers: the walls had collapsed in EXACTLY the pattern that the Bible described in the conquest of Jericho. Well, we know that Joshua and the Israelites entered the land in the late Bronze age. In fact we know by other data the actual time of 1406 BC. So Garstang was interested in WHEN the walls had collapsed. And he started collecting and dating pottery. And according to his analysis, the date of the site was 1406BC – EXACTLY WHEN THE BIBLE SAID. So the Bible was established FACT and to the level of amazing scientific verifiability.

But hold on. A different archaeologist showed up named Kathleen Kenyon and “found” that no, the walls of Jericho had been destroyed 150 years earlier. And she used the same pottery as her primary source of dating.

Thirty years pass. For thirty years all the “scholars” and all the “scientists” sneered at the Bible. It had been factually refuted.

But a guy named Dr. Bryant Woods shows up in the 1980s. And he’s doing his PhD on pottery and decides to reopen the case that had been “rock-solid” against the Bible. He decided he was going to evaluate ALL the evidence of the pottery fragments. He tracked them all down. And to his intellectual horror he discovered that this pseudo-scientific fraud Kathleen Kenyon had not even BOTHERED to look at most of the actual evidence before arriving at her sneering bogus conclusion.  Seriously, Woods went to the museums and found that Kenyon hadn’t even examined the evidence.

And Dr. Bryant Woods CONCLUSIVELY PROVED THAT THE BIBLE WAS COMPLETELY HISTORICALLY ACCURATE IN EVERY SINGLE DETAIL THAT IT HAD AFFIRMED.

And this sneering arrogant intellectually dishonest fools’ game has been played over and over and over again with the Bible.

But the fact remains that NO archaeological find has EVER controverted a SINGLE fact presented in the Bible. It stands as completely true in all that it affirms.

The Bible remains true as the anvil of history. You can pound on it as you will, but you will die and the Word of the Living God will go on and on and on.

The Bible is beyond any doubt the best seller in the entire history of planet earth: more copies are sold every year, more are sold every single month, every single week, every single DAY, than any other book in the world. Twenty million copies of the Bible are sold each year just in the United States alone.  And that doesn’t even count the millions of copies that are given away by people who have their OWN stories of their OWN encounters with a Jesus who is STILL alive.  As an example, the Gideons alone distributes about 60 million copies of the Bible a year.

The Harry Potter series has collectively sold 500 million copies worldwide, which is truly astounding.  Unless you compare it to the more than six BILLION copies of the Bible.

The Bible is available in over 2,100 languages.  Because humanity has a passion and a hunger for the true Word of the Living God.

Richard Dawkins’ book, for the official record, is not; in fact it’s none of the above at all.

So I read the Bible with that understanding that it is THE most sacred Book in the history of the world. It ought to be given that respect because what I just stated is simply true by any objective measure. But the scoffers continue to abound and they have no respect for anything that is sacred.

But it comes down to this: people who fixate on the most minor details and then say, “See? It’s wrong, it’s ALL wrong!!!” are not wise.

Most of the time, when I hear somebody assert to me that the Bible isn’t accurate or isn’t reliable, and I ask them to give me an example, they literally cannot think of even ONE such example. Somebody at some time said something, and that was all they needed and they never bothered on their own to verify or refute a claim they just took at face value.

I simply marvel at that: your entire ETERNITY hangs on this, and you just yawn and walk away like it’s no big deal when it is the biggest deal of your existence.

My challenge to everyone is to study the questions of eternity as though your soul depends on it: because it DOES.

DON’T be a “Kathleen Kenyon” who doesn’t bother with the facts and arrives at bogus conclusions that are based on lies; be a “Bryant Wood” who carefully examines all the evidence and arrives at the truth.  Be like St. Luke the author of the Gospels and Acts, who stated, “I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning” (Luke 1:3).  Be like the Bereans, who “were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).

Consider Jesus.  Consider Who He was and whether He Is.

One way or another, you have to answer the ultimate questions. Is there a God? Who is He? What does He expect of us? Or is there NO god? And if not why should I bother living in accordance with a bunch of made-up politically correct gibberish and if I want something that someone else has, why shouldn’t I steal it and if somebody’s bothering me why shouldn’t I kill him or her? And who the hell does any other human being think he or she is to tell me what I should do or how I should live when it’s MY life and it will be MY eternal dirt nap and butt the hell out of my business because I’m not a herd animal, I’m a predator animal.  And your own precious evolution says we predators are every bit as evolutionarily valid as your herd animals.

Or chose Christ and choose life and experience life more abundantly instead.  Because Jesus contrasted the Way of Evolution with His Way when He said:

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” — John 10:10

Stop being double-minded, unstable in all your ways.  Stop wavering between two opinions.  Make up your mind.  Get off the fence.  Choose this day whom you will serve.
