A Tribute to Fathers

In our era of feminist revolt against the God-ordained family order, fathers – and men in general – have taken a harsh beating. Men have been relegated to the shadows as women have stepped forward to assert their so-called dominance. Advertising, mainstream media, Hollywood, public schooling, the courts, ad inifinitum, have stepped forward to belittle and emasculate men, denigrate husbands, dismiss the relevance of fatherhood, and promote a Marxist-style culture devoid of time-tested values and traditional gender roles. This Father’s Day article is a tribute to fathers and to all real men everywhere.

Men, you are sons of Almighty God. You are loved. You are important. You are irreplaceable. You have a weighty burden of leadership to shoulder. Your role is absolutely critical to the proper function and safety of society. You were appointed by God as the leaders and protectors of your home and society. The patriarchal order established in the days of Adam and Eve is still in force today.

The family is the central building block of society. And the foundation of a good home is the Biblical patriarchal order. It is when society goes away from or twists the patriarchal order, as Marxists everywhere seek to do, that things fall apart. In light of the fact that one of the stated communist goals is to “abolish the family,” the need for real men to step forward and become strong husbands and fathers is self-evident.

In October 1973, Elder A. Theodore Tuttle voiced concern about the “diminishing role of the father.” He explained the importance of fathers and gave sage advice about how men can more faithfully fulfill their duties in the home. His words are even more applicable today. Said he:

“There is genuine concern over the diminishing role of the father in the home. His influence is fading. Presiding responsibilities formerly assumed are left either to the mother or to agencies outside the home. This diminishing role is at the root of a multitude of our problems. Numerous things go awry when the scriptural family organization is upset!

“The father is the patriarch in the home. This means that the father is the presiding authority. This does not mean that he should be dictatorial. . . .

“In reality, each family is a dominion within itself. Father heads that government. In the beginning it was the only government on the earth and was passed down from Adam to his descendants. Properly organized in the Church, the father is the patriarch of an eternal family unit. Heaven, to us, will be simply an extension of an ideal home. As the presiding priesthood officer, the father fills an irreplaceable role. . . .

family8

“The father exercises his spiritual leadership in the home by calling his family to prayer each morning and evening. Weekly family home evening, likewise, is called and presided over by the father, though all others participate.

“The father is the protector of the home. He guards it against the intrusion of evil from without. Formerly he protected his home with weapons and shuttered windows. Today the task is more complex. Barred doors and windows protect only against the intrusion of a corporeal creature. It is not an easy thing to protect one’s family against intrusions of evil into the minds and spirits of family members. These influences can and do flow freely into the home. Satan can subtly beguile the children of men . . . He need not break down the door.

“Fathers, you will have to live close to the Lord. Develop a sensitivity to the impressions of the Spirit.

“There is yet another intrusion into the home that needs to be mentioned. It is an unwise father who carries to his family his daily business cares. They disturb the peace existing there. He should leave his worries at the office and enter his home with the spirit of peace in his heart and with the love of God burning within him. If there is friction, his presence should soothe it. If there is turmoil, he should resolve it. . . .

“Fathers, draw close to your children. Learn to communicate. Learn to listen. This means giving a father’s most valuable commodity—time! Only good results occur when a father interviews his sons and daughters regularly. He can know their problems and their hopes. He can align himself with them as their unconditional friend. To the extent we become friends with our children in unconditional love, to that extent we become like our Heavenly Father. . . .

father1

“And finally, the father is to be an example of the highest Christian virtues. To walk uprightly in the admonition of the Lord requires not only patience and forebearance, but an exercise in constant practice of all the Christian virtues by each family member. Perhaps the Lord knew this when he instituted the family. A man needs the responsibility of a wife and family. He needs the responsibility of being an example of righteousness. There is wisdom in this requirement. This kind of gentle persuasion is needed to keep a father “on course” and gently guide him toward perfection.

“In the family relationship, we find our best laboratory in which to practice celestial living. While this task is fraught with much challenge and some adversity, it is, nevertheless, blessed with that supreme joy that can come only to a father.

“It should have great meaning that of all the titles of respect and honor and admiration that could be given him, that God himself, he who is the highest of all, chose to be addressed simply as “Father.””

Can you sense the magnitude of your calling as a father?! Fatherhood is the greatest calling, role, and adventure a man can experience. Nothing will build a man’s character faster than having a wife and children to teach, discipline, lead, protect, and provide for. Nothing will make a man square his shoulders and lengthen his stride quicker than the serious responsibility of fatherhood. Nothing is more fulfilling and pleasant than having a family. Indeed, the Lord has said that children are a man’s “reward” and that “happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them” (Psalm 127:3-5).

35545483_2277132988968872_4906984669502767104_n

Men are the God-ordained leaders of the home. We do not know all the reasons why the Lord set it up this way, but He did. And this arrangement has worked in every corner of the earth for millennia. All other arrangements breed corruption and failure, as history amply attests.

A man is the head of the home and a woman is the heart. Both heart and head must work in tandem and fulfill their assigned roles if the body is to function. If a heart stops pumping blood, the body dies. If the brain stops sending signals to the vital organs in the body, they cease to work and death results. Men and women complement each other. A woman absolutely cannot fulfill a man’s role or replace his influence, and no right-thinking person believes a man can do what a woman does.

Biologically, anatomically, emotionally, and even intellectually, men and women are different. Men were physically designed by nature’s God to be able to protect and provide for their families. They were also spiritually and emotionally calculated to be leaders who used reason and force of will to make hard decisions affecting entire families. Women cannot replace men in these functions, and men must not abdicate their role.

Modern men must cut through the haze of Red propaganda and remember who they are. They must steel themselves and become the leaders in their homes and in society. They must remember that their personal feelings notwithstanding, the God of Heaven has appointed them to lead. Men must be the spiritual patriarchs of their homes and lead by righteous example. They must discipline with loving firmness in order for their children to grow and for their marriages to strengthen. As Elder LeGrand Curtis once said, “Discipline is organized love.”

Fathers should be beacons of strength to their families and to the community. Children should happily run to the door and jump into their father’s arms when he arrives home. Wives should be able to trust, respect, rely on, be proud of, and follow their husband’s lead because they see that he is a man of integrity and that he treats her and his children well. And, ultimately, an earthly father should follow the example of his Heavenly Father and “be an example of the highest Christian virtues.”

It is not insignificant that our God has chosen for Himself the title Father. Mortal fathers should remember in whose footsteps they follow. If men only knew who they really are and what their Heavenly Father expects of them, they would push back against the societal tsunami of anti-male feminism and fulfill their inspired roles. Those men who do just that are true heroes and deserve to be remembered and shown respect on this Father’s Day.

As I close this article, I want to pay tribute to my own father. My Dad is my partner, buddy, and pal, to steal a line from Jerry Lewis. He was my first best friend. In several ways, I am closer to him than any person I know. He has been my confidant and friend and a source of strength for me through the years. He was always there for me and always gave me his time. There’s nothing that is upright and just that he wouldn’t do for me. I know he would give his life for me in a heartbeat. And “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). Fortunately, my Dad does not have to lay down his life in order for me to know he loves me. I thoroughly understand that he loves me because he has said it and shown it my entire life. I pay him a personal tribute and take this opportunity to publicly express my gratitude for all his sacrifices for his family and to tell him I love him dearly. I love you, Dad!

Me and my Dad

The role of father is truly special. It is also vital to the proper function of society. The extent to which society rises or falls depends on the stability of its families. And the steadiness of a family relies, to a very large degree, on the strength of its presiding officer, its patriarch, its head, its father. Words cannot express how important fathers are! Women, cherish, support, and follow your husbands. Children, honor and obey your fathers. And men, be the fathers, husbands, and sons God intended you to be – righteous, loving, stalwart, upright, just, firm, and strong. Enjoy this Father’s Day and know that even though society at large may not respect you, there are many people left who honor you for faithfully fulfilling your decisive role as fathers.

Everyday Tyranny

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.” – Ronald Reagan, “A Time for Choosing,” October 27, 1964

We think we are free. We think America is the “land of the free and home of the brave.” But how accurate is this boast in 2019? It is true that we enjoy a greater measure of Liberty and prosperity than any other nation, even in our degraded state. I love this Republic and acknowledge the tremendous blessing it is to live here. And it is precisely because of my intense love for America that I warn of the subversion of our Liberty that is taking place around us and that afflicts us, whether we realize it or not, on a daily basis.

tyranny6

For many decades, die-hard enemies of our Republic, our Constitution, our Freedom, our heritage, and our greatness have worked to subvert our Liberty, impair our institutions, curtail our rights, weaken our economy, corrupt our culture, lessen our global influence for good, and drag us down as a People. This group of socialistic traitors has achieved astonishing success. We have stumbled because we been too apathetic, have grown ignorant, and have lost touch with the things that made us great; namely, our Faith, Families, and Freedom.

While we have been preoccupied with bread and circuses, our enemies have erected a framework of bristling tyranny around us. Literally every day we come into contact with this despotic system. We have been so indoctrinated through public schooling and media mind manipulation that we do not even realize we are being victimized. We have accepted our chains which grow heavier by the day.

James Wilson, one of the great legal minds among our Founding Fathers, said that “law and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.” I believe this is true. How can we defend our rights, for example, if we do not know what they are and cannot articulate them? How can we judge whether a law is sound or unjust if we do not understand the Constitution which is the supreme law of the land? And how can we expect to defend our Liberty if we do not truly love and value it?

tyranny7

Our godless, Marxist-dominated public schools have paved the way for our subjugation through their complacency in teaching the principles of Liberty. They have not taught the Constitution in a meaningful way. They rarely teach the value of civics and the responsibilities of citizenship. They teach Social Justice and collectivism rather than rule of law and characteristic American individualism. And they certainly do not give the moral instruction necessary for correct comprehension of our rights and responsibilities.

Most high schoolers today cannot articulate the Liberty philosophy espoused by their forefathers and codified in our great national documents. Yet, they most certainly can regurgitate the collectivist propaganda ingested during their years of compulsory public schooling. They do not know how to reason for themselves, but they can repeat Establishment talking points and Marxist mantras. They can’t tell you much about George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, but they know all about the communist agitators Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks.

Our homes, the ultimate defenders of society, have done nothing to counteract the fraudulent teachings our children receive in public schools. Parents have failed in their duty to raise their children to be good, moral, patriotic citizens. They have surrendered their responsibility to teach their children and instead passively rely on public schools to do it for them. But instead of being taught and empowered with truth, our children have been anesthetized and made to feel comfortable in servitude.

tyranny10

I repeat that our programming has been so thorough that we do not even realize that we are being tyrannized and abused on a daily basis. To give a glimpse of the despotism we encounter every single day, I share five examples that demonstrate how we are routinely tyrannized. If some of the things I cite appear normal or even beneficial to you, then know that you have been deceived and lied to by the criminal class of Marxist gangsters that rules over us.

Jaywalking: In all fifty states, it is against the law to jaywalk (it is even a federal offense in some locations). What is jaywalking? Jaywalking is nothing more nor less than crossing a street in a location other than the arbitrary section of spray-painted pavement provided by the government. Have you ever considered that the government literally claims the power – on pain of punishment – to tell you where you can and cannot walk?

I still remember when I first learned of the baffling concept of jaywalking in fourth grade. I was leaving school to walk home and needed to cross the street. Instead of crossing at the cross-walk jammed with kids, I decided to cross in a less crowded area a few yards down. Suddenly, a sixth-grade “crossing guard” with his fancy vest and little stop sign started yelling at me that I was “jaywalking.” I had never heard the term and I wasn’t going to let someone tell me where I could and could not walk. So I crossed the road anyway, causing the “crossing guard” to chase me. Fortunately, I was quick and he didn’t get close enough to identify me and “write me up,” as he threatened to do. That story demonstrates the slavish programming received in government-run public schools and in a society that complies with everything the government demands without protest.

tyranny23

To me, as inconsequential as they may seem, jaywalking laws are the absolute epitome of tyranny. If any government can tell you where you can and cannot cross the street – that is, where you can and cannot walk – what Freedom do you really have?

Drivers Licenses: A license is needed when one does not have a right to do something. Do you have a right to travel? I submit that you do have a right to travel. And you have this right without government forcing you to take tests, jump through hoops, obey arbitrary traffic laws like speed limits, and pay a tax in order to enjoy it. What is the mandatory driver’s license fee if not a tax? And what are traffic tickets if not other taxes? Why should we have to take tests proving our competency before being allowed to travel? Traveling is not a privilege the government can grant and revoke at its pleasure.

Think of this in different terms. Did our forefathers have to prove they knew how to ride a horse, and then pay a fee to register their horse with the government, before they galloped out West? Did the Pioneers register and pay fees to the government for their covered wagons and oxen before crossing the plains? Did Thomas Jefferson have a license for those horses he loved to ride each day? Now that I think of it, Thomas Jefferson probably jaywalked, too, as he walked on foot to his swearing in as president. For shame! You’d think a man like Jefferson would know that he has to pay the government for the privilege of traveling in our “land of the free.”

tyranny26

Hunting/Fishing Licenses: Forcing us to buy hunting licenses, fishing licenses, deer tags, and so forth, is another arbitrary government tax and is an attempt to restrict our right and ability to put food on the table for our families. It is also an underhanded way to deter and control gun owners and squash the self-sufficiency of our People. How does government – federal, state, local, it doesn’t matter – have a right to dictate what type of food you can hunt and when you can hunt it? Who gave government this power over your livelihood?

I don’t recall anywhere in the Constitution – the supreme law of the land – where it says that we have to pay government for the “privilege” of killing food to feed our families. I don’t recall anything in the Declaration of Independence stating that for only two weeks out of the year we have a “privilege,” which we must pay for in advance, of harvesting just one deer, and that we must keep our license and tags on us at all times or suffer the wrath of the hordes of Forest Rangers who stalk the woods.

Here is an incident that happened to a man I know. I won’t use any names or locations, but you ought to know the type of oppression hunters routinely face. This man was driving along a mountainous, rural road in the evening and spotted what he thought was a deer in the woods. He stopped his vehicle and pulled out his rifle to get a better look at the deer through his scope. As soon as he looked, he realized it was a fake deer. Deer don’t normally have red eyes. He put the rifle away, but it was too late. A gang of screaming Forest Rangers jumped out of the woods and surrounded him.

The story ended with this man being accosted, threatened, and eventually paying a fine. I ask, what legitimate crime did this man commit? Who did he harm? Whose rights or property did he violate? What did he do that was wrong or immoral? He committed no crime and did nothing wrong. Yet, a group of government workers were hiding in the woods with a fake deer waiting for some innocent person to come by so they could extort money from them. That is the real crime in this scenario. And an even greater crime is that government thinks it can dictate what and when we can hunt and the American People are too apathetic or ignorant to resist.

guns18

Did our forefathers pay the government for the “privilege” of shooting deer, elk, bison, ducks, and pheasants to feed themselves? Did our Pilgrim forefathers have a permit to hunt that turkey they ate on that first Thanksgiving? Did the American Indians apply for permits to live off the land? Not hardly! And neither did our truly free ancestors because they knew their rights and understood that government does not have dictatorial power over your life.

Gun Restrictions: The 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights states that our God-given right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed.” Shall not is very strong language. As originally intended, shall not is a command – a direct order – to government to not interfere with the American People’s rights of self-defense. Each of us has an individual right to own and use weapons. Arms does not refer explicitly to guns, but to any weapon or device that may be used for self-defense. Indeed, at the time of our founding, arms often referred to military grade weaponry. All peaceable citizens had a right and a duty to maintain and bear arms in defense of their families, country, and Liberty.

Today, however, gun owners are demonized and persecuted. In order to purchase firearms in many states we must jump through numerous hoops, endure background checks and waiting periods, and comply with a host of laws. On both the federal and state levels many types of firearms and weapons have been outright banned, from semi-automatic rifles to sawed-off shotguns to military style weapons and accessories. California has even created a task force to confiscate firearms from people it deems clinically insane. It’s sure a good thing no one calls Christians, conspiracy researchers, and “right wingers” insane, right?!

tyranny25

Even President Trump has usurped power and violated the Constitution by unilaterally deciding that the American People can no longer own bump stocks. Apparently the executive oath of office and the 2nd Amendment can be disregarded when there is a “crisis” like the Las Vegas shooting. Who needs a written Constitution when you can simply dictate through executive orders!

While there are victories here and there in the battle to preserve our right to defend ourselves against tyrants and criminals, and to otherwise enjoy firearms in any peaceable way we see fit, the powers-that-be are determined to disarm and subjugate us. The armed segment of American society is the only obstacle standing in the way of the Elites’ dream of a totalitarian world order. If we give up our right to defend ourselves, we give up everything. And if we continue to allow our rights to be buried under a heap of licenses, permits, fines, fees, and red tape, we will surely lose our Freedom.

Taxes: As a general rule, taxation is just another way to say “theft.” When you consider the agonizingly long list of taxes you pay each year, including dozens of hidden taxes like inflation that are not called taxes, you begin to realize how enslaved you’re becoming. The War for Independence was fought, among other reasons, based on the colonists’ legitimate grievance that they were being taxed without their consent. Today, however, we seem to enjoy paying through the nose to government at every turn. If we do not enjoy it, then why don’t we protest as our patriot forefathers did?

Apart from your annual graduated income tax payment, which is blatantly unconstitutional but accords perfectly with proposals in The Communist Manifesto, you pay dozens of other taxes. As noted, every time you pay for a driver’s license, pay to register your vehicle, pay the fine for a traffic violation, pay for a hunting or fishing license, or pay for the hunting tags you need on top of the license, you’re paying extra taxes. When you shop at the grocery store, you pay a hidden tax called inflation. Because of irresponsible spending and money-printing habits, our government has devalued our currency monstrously. Who pays the price when companies, to break even, hike product prices? You do. In every facet of life, you pay taxes to Government Almighty.

taxes6

Below is an extremely short list of taxes we pay to the Marxist Establishment lording over us:

Death tax

Estate tax

Inheritance tax

Federal income tax

Local income tax

Sales tax

City utility fees (garbage, water, sewage, etc.)

School taxes

Road and bridge tolls

Property taxes

Zoning taxes

IRS penalties

Air travel taxes

Cigarette tax

Alcohol tax

Hunting/fishing license fees

Marriage license fees

Visit the following two links for longer lists of the taxes we routinely pay to the insatiable state:

https://www.balancedpolitics.org/editorials/100_taxes_you_pay.htm

I also recommend Aaron Russo’s film “America: From Freedom to Fascism” for a breakdown on the issue of taxation and on whether the law really requires you to pay taxes at all. It might open your eyes to just how plundered and abused we are on a daily basis by our hijacked government.

tyranny12

After reviewing the five points noted, it should be apparent to a greater extent how tyrannized we’ve become. We are wrapped up in government red tape and hounded by law enforcement henchmen who claim they are “just following orders.” If you dissent, you are called a rebel, a lunatic, a racist, a bigot, a Nazi, or any number of other fallacious slurs. Our forefathers were once called rebels and extremists, too. Yet, because they had the courage to do what was right and not just what was “legal,” they won this country and secured the Freedom we take for granted. The time is now to stand for what is right regardless of whether government bureaucrats have given you permission to do so.

The Beast and His Mark

“I see in Communism the focus of the concentrated evil of our time.” – Ex-Communist, Whitaker Chambers, Witness, xxxvii

In the apocalyptic revelation given to John the Beloved, we are told of a “scarlet coloured beast” that, being ridden by a woman symbolizing “Babylon the Great,” would make war against the Lord’s people (Revelation 17:3-6). This vicious Red beast would besiege and tyrannize the whole earth. Because of the widespread power of the beast, we are informed that “the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4) As a consequence, the beast causes the people of the earth to “receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads,” without which “no man might buy or sell” (Revelation 13:16-17). The purpose of this article is to show how John’s prophecy of the beast and his mark is being literally fulfilled in our day.

mark of the beast16

Before we discuss what the “mark of the beast” is and how it is being administered, let’s discuss the beast. Who or what is this “scarlet coloured beast”? It seems apparent to me that the woman symbolizing Babylon, and the beast which carries her, represent a system of global governance created by the Dragon. As noted, it is the Dragon who gives power to the beast (Revelation 13:4). Answering who or what the Dragon is becomes most helpful in discerning what the beast really is.

The book of Revelation makes it plain in more than one location that the Dragon is Satan, the Evil One, the arch-enemy of God and man. Revelation 12 tells us that after the War in Heaven which took place before mankind came down to earth “the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:3-9).

mark of the beast13

This War in Heaven involved all of us – you and me. We were there. We took part. And we chose the winning side! In that pre-earth state, described in detail in my book The Lineage of the Gods, God our Father proposed a Plan for the salvation of mankind. Crucial to His Plan was agency and accountability. Lucifer, however, proposed an alternative plan which would have destroyed the free will of mankind and exalted him “above the stars of God” (Isaiah 14:12-15).

When Lucifer’s perverse plan of slavery was rejected, he and those “angels” (i.e. children of our Heavenly Father) who supported his plan rebelled. They fought against our Father and those of us – you and me – who supported His Plan of Freedom and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. When Satan lost and was “cast out” of Heaven, he continued his war against mankind’s agency here. What John is seeing in Revelation relative to our day is merely an earthly continuation of that same War in Heaven.

Satan’s war is being waged against everyone, but more particularly against the humble followers of Christ. We are told that the Dragon makes war with all those who “keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17). It is in this context of Satan’s war against mankind and against Christ that we first learn of the terrifying beast.

mark of the beast24

The beast is Satan’s weapon of choice. The beast is the vehicle through which the Dragon, or Satan, promotes his war against Christ. It is how he extends his control over the earth. The beast, of course, is not a real beast – it is a metaphor for Satan’s system of malevolence. We might accurately describe it as a “beast system.” It is with this beast system that the kings of the earth unite. These world leaders “shall give their power and strength unto the beast” (Revelation 17:12-13).

As we gaze upon the situation today, which beast-like system do we see extended throughout the whole earth? Which system do we see dominating in all lands and making war against the Lord and the principles of Liberty? While there are multiple competing systems that deny the Christ and restrict man’s Freedom, there is one more prevalent and powerful than all others: Satanic communism.

Communism has many shades and wears many masks, so it is not always immediately apparent that you are dealing with communism. But I submit that communism, in one of its many forms, is the most widely-accepted political system on earth. Socialism, for instance, is nothing but a branch of the communist conspiracy. I have often called socialism communism with a smiley face. Because it wears a smiley face, its principles have been adopted in literally every nation on earth. Look at every nation and you will find some or all of the ten planks of The Communist Manifesto in full force.

The international socialist movement, of which Fabian Socialism is the most powerful strand, was created by Karl Marx and his fanatical supporters. There is very little substantive difference between communism and socialism – and both achieve the same results. Both centralize government, ruin economies, degrade morality, abolish the family unit, and destroy Freedom. And it is this same communist conspiracy that created the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, etc. I repeat, this communist/socialist monstrosity is the most widely-implemented system in the world.

communism65

Soviet Russia, Red China, and North Korea are the three premier examples of communism in action. But if you look beyond their borders, you find socialism absolutely everywhere. India, the second most populous nation on earth, was an early target of communist subversion and now bears a socialist government and is a formal partner in the BRICS alliance which includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, and other states. Throughout the Middle East, socialist governments abound. And most of these, from Iran to Egypt to Turkey to Pakistan, are propped up by the Russians and Chinese. Central and South America is a hotbed of communism, with openly-communist regimes dominating nations like Cuba and Venezuela, and closet communists ruling in Mexico, Nicaragua, and elsewhere. Africa is also a little-discussed center of communist activity. Europe is almost entirely socialist – and proudly so.  Even the United States, in contravention of her inspired Constitution, has adopted all ten planks of The Communist Manifesto to greater or lesser degree.

Without any doubt, the communist system is the most widespread system on earth. The Comintern, or Communist International, has made sure of that. And communism is the foremost system calling for “world revolution” and the overthrow of all traditional values, human Freedom, and Christ’s Church. More people have been pillaged, abused, raped, enslaved, and murdered under communism in the past century than under all other systems in all previous centuries of earth’s history combined. There has simply never been anything like the beast system of communism.

It also seems significant that the beast is described as “scarlet,” or red. In fact, during the War in Heaven described earlier, the Dragon is also described as “red” (Revelation 12:3). Author Farley Anderson, in his wonderful work The Book of Revelation Today, said this about identifying the beast:

“We next see that the beast is a military superpower (Revelation 13:4). From Revelation 13:8 we learn that almost all the earth shall worship the beast. The word worship is strong, but consider how doctrines of communism are taught and learned, and how, directly and indirectly, the world financially supports communism. We then realize that the word worship is very appropriately used. Last, but not least, we see in Revelation 17:3 that the beast is scarlet colored. Identifying the beast as satanic communism may be as simple as asking who the reds are. Lucifer used red as his banner in the pre-mortal world. The Marxist followers of our day are likewise known as Red communists or socialists” (Anderson, The Book of Revelation Today, 22).

mark of the beast8

The communist conspiracy has taken to itself the color of red. It is the Red Menace. The Reds are the ones who have declared eternal war against humanity. The Illuminati-Jacobins – from whence sprang communism – hoisted the red flag of revolution over France. Red is the color of world revolution. Red is the color of communism. Red is the color of the beast. And red is the color of the Dragon.

Furthermore, the communist system is much more than a political system. It is an all-encompassing worldview and a counterfeit religion. Elder Bruce R. McConkie, a competent religious authority, described communism thus:

“Basically and chiefly, communism is a form of false religion; it is one of the major divisions of the church of the devil. It denies God and Christ; belittles Christianity; runs counter to the moral and ethical standards of religion and decency; denies men their agency; wrenches from them their inalienable rights; and swallows the individual and his wellbeing up in the formless mass of the state” (McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 151).

Another time, he explained:

“Communism is in reality a form of religion in which men deny the God of the Bible and worship the gods of compulsion and power and war” (McConkie, A New Witness for the Articles of Faith, 54).

The great J. Edgar Hoover also said:

“Communism is more than an economic, political, social, or philosophical doctrine. It is a way of life; a false, materialistic “religion.” It would strip man of his belief in God, his heritage of freedom, his trust in love, justice, and mercy. Under communism, all would become, as so many already have, twentieth-century slaves” (Hoover, Masters of Deceit, Foreword, vi).

In these descriptions, we see the echo of John who saw people worshiping the beast. Communism displaces God and sets itself up as man’s deity – and demands to be worshiped. It is a false idol. It is organized paganism. Communism centralizes all power in the hands of the ruling Elite, who in turn serve Satan. The state, controlled by Satan through his initiated followers, becomes the people’s object of worship and behaves like a cruel god in dispensing judgment, controlling life and death, dictating how people earn money, and dominating every aspect of life.

7c2ffbea689ad40a19d2b5b5a21dd163

Henry Makow spoke of the “New World Order” and how it is inseparably intertwined with the Satanic communist philosophy. He wrote:

“The purpose of the New World Order is the same as Communism. The Illuminati created Communism as a means to flout God’s will and enslave mankind. Karl Marx was hired to sell totalitarian rule (“the dictatorship of the proletariat”) by pretending to espouse equality. He was a Satanist as were Trotsky, Lenin and Stalin. . . .

“The Luciferians portray their rebellion against God and nature as progress and freedom. This permissiveness refers only to tearing down the Divine order. In the initiation into the Seventh degree of Satanism, the adept swears, “Nothing is true and everything is permitted.” In the Communist Manifesto, Marx said all religion and morals will be abolished and everything permitted.

“The religion of modern western society, secular humanism, is a front for Illuminism (Lucifer worship). The purpose of Illuminism is to divorce humanity from the Divine Purpose and enshrine Lucifer (i.e. the Illuminati) in God’s place. Under the guise of a humanist utopia, they are constructing an Orwellian hell – the New World Order, a.k.a. globalism.

“The goal of globalism is the same as Communism. The world’s elite masks its Luciferianism in new age paganism and Gaia worship. The Lucifer Trust runs the only chapel at the United Nations and the only statue in the UN building is the pagan god Zeus” (Makow, Illuminati: The Cult that Hijacked the World, 66-67).

Now that we have reasonably established that the scarlet beast is the worldwide Satanic communist system, we come to the question of the mark of the beast. What is the mark of this communistic beast? The prevailing view seems to be that the “mark” is a literal identification or tracking marker forcibly given to people, such as an RFID microchip implanted in the hand or a tattoo printed on the head. I diverge from this opinion.

mark of the beast2

A study manual printed by my Church does not give an official opinion on what the mark of the beast is, but it provides one possibility that I feel is very close to the truth. Recall that the beast’s “mark” is taken in the hand or forehead. The manual notes: “This may symbolize that the wicked show by their actions (hands) and beliefs (heads) that they do the will of the beast and accept his ideology” (New Testament Student Manual, “Revelation 12-16,” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2014). It is my feeling that this is a correct interpretation and that the mark of the beast is figurative rather than literal.

Recall that John says people will worship the beast and the Dragon who empowers it. That is, they will worship the communistic system and, by default, Satan who established it. People who go along with the communist ideology, whether they recognize it as such or not, are figuratively marking themselves as enemies of God and His great Plan of Freedom. This Satanic communist ideology includes belief in all forms of socialism and welfare-statism, Darwinian evolution, humanism, atheism, New Age spiritualism, reincarnation, homosexuality, sexual immorality, feminism, abortion, no-fault divorce, drug use, radical environmentalism, ad infinitum. When we realize that all of these ideas and practices are upheld and subsidized by the Satanic communist conspiracy, and that most people believe or do at least some of them, it becomes apparent that most of the world has already marked themselves as followers of the beast system.

Thus, the beast system is spread primarily through indoctrination and conditioning. Public schools and the Marxist media are the chief tools of socialist indoctrination. Generations of unsuspecting people have been initiated into the beast system’s beliefs through public schooling, and their false beliefs are daily fortified by the controlled media. It is a diabolically ingenious system of social control – the type of system that could have only been invented and coordinated on a global scale by a supremely malevolent being and a devoted cadre of co-conspirators.

In the degraded age in which we live, it is not necessary to forcibly microchip a person in order to control him. Yes, thousands of people are now voluntarily lining up to be microchipped. And the risks posed by such a practice are high. However, there are much simpler ways to control people. Public indoctrination has been noted, but there are at least two other methods I wish to discuss.

mark of the beast1

Yesterday, June 5, 2019, we witnessed an example of how the beast system currently curtails and controls a person’s right to buy and sell. I refer to YouTube’s demonetization of Steven Crowder’s YouTube channel. Steven Crowder is a highly popular conservative YouTuber with nearly four million subscribers on his channel. He hosts the show Louder with Crowder. Yesterday, YouTube demonetized Crowder’s channel. Why? Crowder was demonetized because he has said many things that are politically incorrect and that rub the Establishment the wrong way. In particular, he has been labeled “homophobic.” It is just the latest example of political correctness at work.

Anyone who follows my writings knows that political correctness is a communist invention imported from Soviet Russia. It is a means of thought control and one of the greatest threats to free speech. To be politically correct is to toe the communist line – or, to toe the beast’s line. To be labeled politically incorrect, one must simply dissent from and openly oppose the communist ideology. Those who oppose the communist conspiracy’s efforts to turn the world into a GULAG must be prepared to face criticism and persecution.

Under the aegis of political correctness, the powers-that-be have begun restricting certain people’s ability to carry on their careers and earn a living. They have directly attacked the pocketbooks of activists, labeled “extremists,” with whom they disagree. For example, they file lawsuits against Christians who exercise their right to not make cakes for homosexuals, effectively shutting down their businesses. They block people from accessing social media platforms and having an equal chance to reach an audience and promote products. They revoke licenses and kick people off the air, closing down their avenues for self-promotion. They ban authors’ books, or prevent them from reaching major distributors, in a kind of digital book burning. They restrict travel rights in some situations, such as when Britain banned Michael Savage. They even go after the bank accounts of businesses and high profile figures, causing their businesses to collapse.

Crowder is just the latest in a long line of blacklisted figures that includes Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, Jordan Peterson, Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopolous, MS King, David Irving, etc. At the present time, yours truly is currently banned for thirty more days from Facebook. Alex Jones is perhaps the most famous person on the list. Alex Jones of Infowars fame has been permanently banned from Facebook and Twitter, had his YouTube accounts suspended, been removed from the Apple iTunes app store, been deleted on Spotify, and so forth. Google also restricts search results to filter out as many of Infowars’ stories as possible. Jones’ ability to reach an audience and, thus, earn a living and promote his message, has been severely compromised by the Marxist Establishment. Anyone who speaks out against the tide of cultural Marxism, political insanity, and Satanism sweeping the globe is a target for persecution. And it will only get worse.

Another very similar method of social control has been introduced by the Red Chinese. It is known as the social credit system. The Chinese communist government now rates its subjects, and businesses, on their level of obedience to communist dictates. They are each given a social credit rating. Their social credit score determines whether they can use public transport, buy land, have access to certain business markets, etc. Many millions of Chinese subjects have already been banned from air and train travel based on their low social credit scores. This diabolical system effectively prevents people from “buying and selling” unless they kowtow to the communist state.

mark of the beast5

What’s worse, some in the United States are beginning to call for a social credit system based on China’s model. For instance, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang supports the system. Support will only grow as society plunges deeper into depravity and as more and more people become enamored by the false allure of socialist freebies.

Whether or not an official social credit system ever reaches our shores, an informal system is already taking shape. Tech oligarchs in United States and throughout the West are beginning to informally do what Red China is formally doing. Media platforms essentially rank their users and punish them for failure to comply with their political and cultural ideas. Just as Chinese are prevented from traveling, Americans are prevented from speaking. Once we lose the right to speak out, other rights will quickly succumb.

Red China is actively exporting its system of mass surveillance and repression to nations as diverse as Australia and Panama. It is foreseeable that the entire world will be blanketed with a similar system of top-down control as the world continues to move everything online and governments keep making excuses for interfering in internet privacy. In our digital age, we are in grave danger of losing our Liberty and being forced to take the mark of the beast. At the very least, those of us who oppose the Dragon’s system and refuse to bow down and worship the beast will be marginalized and discredited so severely that we will become second-class subjects.

It is important that Christians, and all people, wake up to the awful reality facing them. We are opposed by the greatest, most well-coordinated, most widespread system of tyranny the world has ever seen. Paganism is organized against us. An international network of Marxist Satanists is actively trying to enslave us. Gradually, mankind is being coerced or seduced into taking the mark of the beast. They are being led to believe what the beast says and follow in his footsteps of perversion and immorality. Humanity is being initiated into a Satanic world order without even realizing it.

While fear of a political world order is justified, we must realize that a political world order is a means to a more frightening end. The end sought for is an occult world order. As the world embraces Wicca (the fastest-growing religion in America and Britain), pagan spirituality, and Eastern mysticism, the beast grows in power and the Dragon laughs. We are in a war of the most serious sort and most people do not even realize it.

communism43

Decades ago, the honorable Ezra Taft Benson warned:

“Today we are at war. It is not enough to be against communism. We must shed our complacency and aggressively meet this challenge. . . .

“There can be no compromise with the communists. They are at war with us – with the entire cause of freedom, and the sooner every American faces this hard fact, the stronger our position will be. It is a real war. The lines are tightly drawn. The war is more insidious, more devious, more devastating, and more satanical than any war in our history. Moral principles, once universally recognized are ignored. International law once respected is thrown to the wind.

“The socialist-communist philosophy is devastatingly evil – destructive of all that is good, uplifting and beautiful. It strikes at the very foundation of all we hold dear” (Benson, “We Must Become Alerted and Informed,” speech, December 13, 1963).

It is time to wake up. It is time to arise. It is time to fight back and refuse to take the beast’s mark. Yes, it is easier to be complacent. It is easier to be quiet. It is easier to not rock the boat. However, Liberty is more important than a good social credit score. Freedom is more important than a monetized YouTube channel. And doing what is right no matter the consequences is more vital than anything. Does not rocking the boat really matter if in the end you lose your soul by supporting the beast system? Lose your soul you will if you support the ideology of the beast.

J. Edgar Hoover implored:

“Communism can exist only where it is protected and hidden. The spotlight of public exposure is the most effective means we have to use in destroying the communist conspiracy. Drag that conspiracy into the light! Tear it apart. Reveal the flaws in its philosophy. Keep the pressure on it. Force it into retreat” (Hoover, The Lion, October, 1957, in Newquist, ed., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, 251).

We must use what Liberty we have remaining to drag Satanic communism into the light and tear it apart. We must expose the enemy. We must not flinch as the beast lashes out against us and as the Dragon spews fire and hate in our direction. We can stand firmly against this global monstrosity if we remember how John says the story ends. He triumphantly prophesied:

“These [kings] have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them; for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful” (Revelation 17:13-14).

In cannibalistic fashion, the beast will turn against the woman who rides it and will devour her. We are told:

“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Revelation 17:16).

mark of the beast15

When the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, overcomes the Dragon and his vicious Red beast, the followers of Christ who remained faithful will cheer and proclaim: “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen” (Revelation 18:2). Yes, Babylon will fall. Satan will be bound. And Satanic communism will be exposed, torn apart, and defeated. The only question remaining is who will be on the Lord’s side and who will succumb to Satan and unite the beast.

If you seek to avoid taking the mark of the beast, learn of the communist conspiracy and forsake all the points of its false and Devilish philosophy. Cultivate your faith in the Redeemer Jesus Christ. Defend your Faith, Family, and Freedom. Cling to the true principles of Liberty, the U.S. Constitution, and your God-given rights. Exercise your right to speak out against the beast system that is taking over and infecting the world. Speak out, stand up, and try to save your country. In so doing, you might save your country; but you will certainly save your soul.

Oppose a Convention of States!

“We live under the only government that ever existed which was framed by the unrestrained and deliberate consultations of the people. Miracles do not cluster. That which has happened but once in six thousand years cannot be expected to happen often. Such a government, once gone, might leave a void, to be filled, for ages, with revolution and tumult, riot and despotism.” – Daniel Webster

The patriot’s mind can scarcely dream up something as risky and more potentially damning to our Republic as the so-called “Convention of States” being proposed primarily by mainstream Republicans and conservatives. Perhaps you have not heard of the well-organized and well-funded push for a Convention of States. This article will explain the scheme for calling a deceptively-named Convention of States while pointing out the terrible risks we run in indulging this nearsighted idea.

ConCon2

First thing’s first: What is a Convention of States? A Convention of States is a formal meeting of all the states in the Union to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution. This Convention would be called pursuant to Article V of the Constitution, which will be discussed shortly. The term “Convention of States” is actually nowhere to be found in the Constitution. Article V uses a simpler term for the same concept: “Convention.”

Though the mainstream “conservatives” pushing this idea protest the fact, the hard reality is that a “Convention of States” is nothing other than a constitutional convention. The relevant section of Article V of the Constitution states:

“The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress.”

Please note that Article V of the Constitution authorizes two-thirds of the states to petition for a “Convention” – that is, a constitutional convention. It does not authorize some fictitious “Convention of States.” Any formal meeting called forth by two-thirds of the states would be, by default, a constitutional convention because its purpose is to offer amendments to the Constitution. As just cited, the convention would “propose Amendments to this Constitution.” And what of these amendments? Are they binding upon the Union? Article V affirms that all amendments proposed by said convention “shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution” when approved by the states.

Let’s restate this in different terms. If two-thirds – that is, thirty-four – of our states formally call for an Article V “Convention,” a meeting of delegates from each state would convene with power to propose amendments to the existing Constitution. These amendments, upon approval by three-fourths – or thirty-eight – of the states, would become part of the supreme law of the land. This, my friends, is a constitutional convention! It is not a “Convention of States.” There is no such thing as a “Convention of States.” That very modern term is at best inaccurate, and at worst deliberately deceptive. What we are discussing is the instigation of a formal constitutional convention.

Literally anything could be proposed in such a convention. The mainstream conservatives backing this convention have deceived themselves into thinking that only good, beneficial, and wise amendments would be produced – amendments calling or a balanced budget, setting term limits, ending our endless foreign wars, and so forth. Most supporters believe that a convention of this sort can be limited, by prearranged agreement, to only one topic.

ConCon7

But what guarantee can they give that an Article V convention can be limited to one single issue? They cannot promise this. Article V certainly does not make that clear that a limited convention can be called. In fact, is speaks of a convention proposing “amendments” in the plural. Once convention delegates get behind closed doors, who knows what prerogatives they will claim! We simply cannot predict what a convention might attempt to do.

If a convention decides that Article V in fact allows them to propose multiple amendments, who is to say that they won’t attempt to push forward a socialistic agenda? What guarantee do we have that an amendment stripping Americans of their right to keep and bear arms would not be proposed? What guarantee can they offer that tax-payer funded healthcare would not be formally added to the Constitution? What guarantee can they give that our children won’t be forced to study in government public schools, that we won’t be required to be vaccinated against our will, that our businesses won’t be forced to accept LGBT standards, that the internet will not be regulated “for our protection,” and so forth?

No matter how anti-American, communistic, or unsound an amendment proposed by such a convention is, it becomes part of the supreme law of the land if subsequently ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures. Recall that Article V states that all amendments proposed by a convention are law “when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress.” Do you trust Congress, or even the states, to keep an Article V convention in check? This issue of trusting Congress becomes paramount when we ponder the question: Who sets the rules for an Article V convention?

The Constitution tells us exactly who sets the rules governing an Article V convention – and it is not the states as “Convention of States” supporters claim. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 18 of the Constitution declares that one of the duties of Congress is: “To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States.” The U.S. Congress, therefore, is in charge of establishing rules and regulations for any convention called forth under Article V. And Article V makes it clear in two places that the Congress is the entity empowered to inaugurate a convention once enough states have submitted petitions.

What may Congress decide relative to an Article V convention? It appears that Congress can dictate where a convention is held, how convention delegates are chosen, how many delegates are sent from each state, and virtually anything else it wants to. It is Congress, not the states, who have final authority over the proceedings of an Article V convention. Once two-thirds of the states petition for a convention, Congress is empowered to take the lead in governing the convention.

Real dyed-in-the-wool American patriots are terrified at the thought of our current Congress dictating the rules for a 21st-Century constitutional convention. Can you imagine Nancy Pelosi presiding over a meeting to define the parameters of a new constitutional convention? The Democratic Party holds a majority in the House of Representatives. Do you trust them? By the same token, do you trust the Republicans to do the right thing? If you do not trust Congress, you simply cannot trust an Article V convention.

And what if Congress decided that states will send delegates proportional to their populations? In that scenario, communist-controlled states like California and New York would have a disproportionate sway over the convention despite the fact that it was primarily “Republican” states who called for a convention. Any way you slice it, an Article V convention is, given our present political climate, an unacceptable risk.

The key takeaway from this portion of the article is that there is no limit to the scope and tenor of amendments an Article V convention may propose, except the provision that no state may be deprived of its voting power. A convention can literally propose anything it wants to – and Congress can likewise set forth any procedural regulations it chooses. Additionally, a convention may itself propose a new ratification method other than the three-fourths of states called for in Article V! This is precisely what our Founding Fathers did in Philadelphia in 1787, thus setting an ominous precedent for future conventions.

In 1787, our Founding Fathers discarded the rules set forth in the Articles of Confederation requiring a unanimous approval by all thirteen states of any new amendments. Instead of abiding by this rule, our Founders determined that only three-fourths of the states needed to approve the newly-written Constitution for it to become operative. If the 1787 Convention did it, why can’t a convention in 2019 or 2020 or 2025? The precedent is there and you are fooling yourself if you believe for one second that delegates to a modern convention wouldn’t consider following it.

Speaking of precedents, the 1787 Constitutional Convention was conducted in deliberate secrecy. It proceedings were completely off-record. No one knew what the delegates were discussing, what was being proposed, or what progress, if any, was being made. All that the American People knew was that some of its finest men were huddled together behind closed doors hashing out their future course. Again, do you trust today’s gaggle of politicians to deliberate behind closed doors and emerge with changes to our Constitution that will be beneficial, wise, and sound?

Founding Fathers12

The real issue here is not whether there is constitutional authority to call a convention – the authority clearly exists. No, the real question is whether we have enough capable and worthy representatives to keep such a convention in harmony with America’s founding vision. In 1787, the country had a deep pool of hearty patriots to choose representatives from. These were men of honor, integrity, experience, faith, and wisdom. Among them were George Washington, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, James Wilson, and Gouverneur Morris. But who do we have to represent us today? Where are the Washingtons and Madisons of modern America? Do you honestly believe we can round up a group whose wisdom, fidelity, and reliability equals that of our 1787 Convention?

President Gordon B. Hinckley, one of the most powerful and eloquent religious leaders of our modern age, spoke reverently of our Founding Fathers and lamented that we cannot now produce a group as talented as they. He observed:

“What a singular and remarkable group they were. As I look across the world today, I search in vain for such a group as walked together across the stage of history when this nation was born. . . .

“Just think of a moment of George Washington, of Franklin, of Madison, of the Adams’s, of Thomas Jefferson, and their associates who signed the Declaration of Independence, or participated in the Constitutional Convention. Where in all the world today can even one or two such men be found, let alone the great aggregation that participated in the birth of America?

“Can anyone deny that they were raised up unto this very purpose, that working together, they brought forth on this continent an independent nation at the risk of their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor? It is my conviction that while we have had a few great leaders since then, there has not been before or since so large a group of talented, able, dedicated, and inherently wise and good men as those whom we call the Founding Fathers of this nation. For as long as they lived they acknowledged the hand of the Almighty in the affairs of this republic.”

I endorse President Hinckley’s remarks. Our Founding Fathers were a unique group. They were talented beyond measure. They were endowed with wisdom – wisdom field-tested over generations of struggle. They were men of God. Their patriotism and devotion to America is beyond dispute. And the supreme work of their hands, the Constitution, has withstood the test of time and helped produced the greatest, freest, most prosperous and powerful nation in world history.

Founding Fathers11

Do we honestly believe that our wisdom is superior to that of our Founding Fathers? What arrogance to believe that we are smarter than they; that we know better how to formulate beneficial laws; that the principles and functions of our current Constitution are outdated and need fixed; and that we have somehow outgrown the vision for America’s destiny foreseen by our forefathers! Speaking to a group of Nobel Prize winners in 1962, President John F. Kennedy remarked: “I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.” And so it is.

Our Founding Fathers’ brilliance eclipses in every conceivable way our present wisdom, if indeed it can be called wisdom at all. We have sunken to such a state of mindless confusion, infectious bias, and distressing ignorance that I have zero faith that our nation of 330 million people could produce fifty-six men as capable and faithful as those who gave us our Constitution. Unless we sincerely believe that we can assemble a group of men that rivals George Washington, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and their partners, in intelligence and honesty, we are risking our entire nation by calling for an inherently unpredictable Article V convention.

While many who support a “Convention of States” are well-meaning and merely lack a correct understanding of the risks involved, there are other supporters who are sworn adversaries of our Republic. These individuals are certainly not friends of the Constitution because they would use their influence to call a convention whose proposals could quite potentially eviscerate that inspired document.

I have noted that Republicans and conservatives are the primary people pushing for an Article V convention. It is true that they are the most vocal. Author and radio host Mark Levin, for instance, is the de facto spokesman for the movement. Sean Hannity, David Barton, and other “conservatives” likewise support a convention because they think it will help us rein in government.

Yet, notwithstanding the support of mainstream conservatism, there are numerous communist groups also chomping at the bit for a constitutional convention. I have seen it reported that arch-communist George Soros is opposing a Convention of States. The truth, however, is that Soros-funded groups like Wolf PAC and Code Pink are in fact actively campaigning for a “Convention of States,” with Wolf PAC successfully prodding some six Democratic states to apply for an Article V convention. Soros and numerous other Marxists also have a hand in the Constitution 2020 movement.

ConCon6

It is a socialist dream to have a constitutional convention which can be hijacked and used as the vehicle for doing away with the U.S. Constitution that stands as an obstacle for their conquest of America. Every dirty trick, including using the media to bias and deceive the American People, would be employed to sabotage the proceedings. Blackmail, special interest lobbying, and bribery would all be used to ramrod radical changes through an Article V convention. In all likelihood, a “Convention of States” would mean the formal death of our Republic.

But, conservatives claim, the states still have the final say in whether to approve or reject amendments proposed in a convention. This is true. However, if thirty-four states take the risk of petitioning for a convention, it does not seem a tall order to persuade four more to go along with the crowd in ratifying the proposals. After all, every four years the media persuades a similar number of states to vote against their best interests as they select Establishment-approved presidential candidates. The risks are just too great to call a convention at present.

In a 2015 article written by an attorney using the name Publius Huldah, we find this blunt warning:

“If there is an Article V convention, we will lose the Constitution we have, and another Constitution will be imposed.

“You are not getting both sides of this issue. Throughout the country, those of us who are warning of the dangers of an Article V convention are marginalized, ridiculed, smeared, shut out of meetings, and barred from speaking in public forums. . . .

“The reason convention proponents forbid dissenting voices is that we can prove, by means of facts and original source documents, that the claims and promises of the convention proponents are false. . . .

“We are in the final stage of a takeover. Leftists of every variety want a new Constitution to legalize our transformation from the constitutional Republic created by our existing Constitution to a dictatorship.

“To get a new Constitution, they need a convention. So they are telling conservatives that our Constitution is causing our problems and we need to amend the Constitution. And they say we can only make the amendments they say we need at a convention.”

Please read the rest of the very astute warning here.

The New American also warned of an Article V convention in a 2018 article:

“Nearly all conservatives agree that the federal government — under both Democrats and Republicans — continues to grow beyond the limitations set for it in the U.S. Constitution. As part of that overreach, the federal government has been swelling the national debt into the multiple trillions and treading on the rights of the states and of the people for more than a hundred years. The Insider/Internationalist/Big Government/Deep State/Globalist types — having created the problem in the first place — are now busily forming and funding organizations that offer a “solution” in the form of a modern-day constitutional convention that would have the power to rewrite the U.S. Constitution.

“They are guilty of what 19th-century French economist Frédéric Bastiat called “concocting the antidote and the poison in the same laboratory.” Having administered a near fatal dose of the poison, they are now pushing slick, well-funded campaigns to sell the antidote. But here is the rub: Administering poison was never the real goal; its purpose was to make the antidote appear attractive.”

Problem-reaction-solution. This is the tactic commonly used by the Elites. They artificially create a problem. Then they nudge the public’s reaction in the direction they want it to go. And, finally, when public outcry reaches a boiling point, they rush in with a “solution.” They always ride in as white knights to save the day. If people only understand the hero is really the villain wearing a mask, they would be less likely to take his outstretched hand.

ConCon5

The Center of Budget and Policy Priorities also published a piece with many warnings. I extract this portion for your consideration:

“A convention likely would be extremely contentious and highly politicized, and its results impossible to predict.

“A number of prominent jurists and legal scholars have warned that a constitutional convention could open up the Constitution to radical and harmful changes. For instance, the late Justice Antonin Scalia said in 2014, “I certainly would not want a constitutional convention. Whoa! Who knows what would come out of it?” Similarly, former Chief Justice of the United States Warren Burger wrote in 1988:

““[T]here is no way to effectively limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The Convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda. Congress might try to limit the Convention to one amendment or one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey. After a Convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the Convention if we don’t like its agenda.” . . .

“In sum, there is no way to predict what constitutional amendments the delegates to a convention might adopt.”

If even our Supreme Court justices admit that an Article V convention is “unpredictable” and not easy to limit, shouldn’t we step back and really think about what we are asking for?

Finally, Common Cause issued this warning:

“A well-funded, highly coordinated national effort is underway to call a constitutional convention, under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, for the first time in history. The result of such a convention could be a complete overhaul of the Constitution and supporters of the convention are dangerously close to succeeding. With special interest groups gaining more momentum, conservative advocates are just six states short of reaching the constitutionally-required 34-state goal. They are targeting Republican-controlled legislatures in 2018 and are within striking distance.

“The unknowns surrounding a constitutional convention pose an unacceptable risk, particularly in the current polarized political climate. Given how close calling a new convention is, it’s time to spotlight that risk and sound an alarm for the preservation of our Constitution.

“Too few Americans are even aware that a constitutional convention can be called, let alone that there would be no checks on its scope and further that the process to call one is well underway and being underwritten by some of the nation’s richest individuals. . . .

“Simply put, an Article V constitutional convention is a dangerous and uncontrollable process that would put Americans’ constitutional rights up for grabs.

“At a time when extreme gerrymandering has created unprecedented polarization and big money buys access and influence for a few very wealthy special interests, a new constitutional convention would lead to chaos; the interests of everyday Americans would be shut out of the ultimate closed-door meeting. There would be no way to limit the scope of a constitutional convention and no way to guarantee that our civil liberties and constitutional process would be protected.”

Read Common Cause’s article for a long list of quotations from legal experts on the unpredictability and danger of an Article V convention.

Where do we stand today in the process of initiating a constitutional convention? We are dangerously close. It is generally accepted that twenty-eight of the necessary thirty-four states have applied for an Article V convention. These have applied, specifically, to propose a balanced budget amendment. Several other states have also applied for a general, or plenary, convention. If the two tallies are added together, as some interpretations demand, thirty-three of the requisite thirty-four states have applied for an Article V convention! Detailed breakdowns of the numbers can be found through The John Birch Society here and The Federalist Society here.

ConCon1

Whatever the number your interpretation causes you to cite, one thing is certain: The movement to call a national convention that would propose amendments to our precious Constitution is gaining momentum. We are potentially very close to the day when Congress will be required to call forth a convention which, depending on numerous variables, could permanently alter America’s governmental structure and future. To Constitution-loving patriots, the “Convention of States” crusade poses a massive threat.

The reality is that we do not need an Article V convention of any sort. The Constitution possesses numerous other avenues for self-correction that are much less risky. For instance, Article VI, Clause 2 declares that the Constitution is “the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” Clause 3 follows this up by ensuring that all governmental representatives in either federal or state positions “shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.” Article VI, then, provides a sure remedy to the mismanagement of our national affairs: Enforcement of the law!

We do not need to amend the Constitution; we need to enforce it. We do not need to change it; we need to apply it. We do not need a novel system; we need accountability under our present one. If we cannot enforce our current Constitution, what makes us think we can enforce a new constitution or that a new amendment will be obeyed when the others are not? An Article V convention is a pipedream indulged by those who have not taken the time to think it through to its logical conclusion. It is a desperate gamble by those who have lost faith in the Constitution, including its much simpler self-correct formulas.

In addition to Article VI, the Ninth and Tenth Amendments reserve to the states all governmental powers not specifically listed in the Constitution. The states once understood this reality and exercised their power. Take action in your home state and start to change things from the inside out. The anti-state rulings of renegade courts do not matter – the Constitution trumps the opinions of activist judges. No court in the land can justly curtail states’ rights. If your state representatives had the nerve, they could assert their rights today and thwart the Washington-based socialist agenda.

We see that the Constitution contains numerous self-correct remedies. We do not need to choose the riskiest and vaguest of them all in order to fix our broken nation. We do not need a convention to balance the budget – Article 1, Section 9, Clause 7 already requires Congress to appropriate funds and give an accounting of its actions. We do not need a new convention with its new opportunities for experimentation and failure. We simply need to apply and enforce the time-tested Constitution as written. We merely need to hold our representatives accountable for the oaths they take to defend the Constitution. And we can use the normal amendment process to appeal hostile amendments such as the sixteenth and seventeenth.

Even our Founding Fathers were worried about calling a new convention. James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, opposed a call by New York for a second constitutional convention in 1788. He listed numerous reasons for his opposition to a new convention and then explained:

“Under all these circumstances it seems scarcely to be presumeable that the deliberations of the [second convention] could be conducted in harmony, or terminate in the general good. Having witnessed the difficulties and dangers experienced by the first Convention which assembled under every propitious circumstance, I should tremble for the result of a Second, meeting in the present temper of America and under all the disadvantages I have mentioned” (James Madison to George Lee Turberville, November 2, 1788).

James Madison1

If the political climate had already shifted and become unfavorable for a new convention by 1788, only one year after the first convention ended, no one can believe the situation is more favorable now. Among the propitious circumstances of the first Constitutional Convention was the unifying presence of George Washington. Who would unify a convention today? Which figure of any political stripe could unify a body of delegates from around the nation? You know in your heart that a modern convention would be rife with partisan bickering and special interest influence.

Whatever course others may choose, I cannot support a constitutional convention. I also could not, because of my religious views, accept the proposals of a new convention. It is my heartfelt belief that the U.S. Constitution was inspired by Almighty God and that anything beyond its plain principles of Liberty is not merely misguided, but evil. For my part, I will never swear allegiance to a new constitution. My allegiance runs to my God and the Constitution which He inspired and caused to be established in America.

If, Heaven forbid, a new convention is initiated, it will require a literal miracle to prevent it from transforming our nation into a communist utopia. Yet, perhaps America is out of miracles. Perhaps the hand of the Lord is no longer guiding us and shielding us from our own choices. We surely do not worship the God of this land, who is Jesus Christ. We have officially banned Him from our schools and made it abundantly clear that He is not welcome in our national deliberations. We have forsaken our cultural institutions and traditions of our honorable forefathers. We are ripening for severe chastisement. And few of our sins are as serious as tampering with our sacred Constitution.

Please, dear friend, oppose a deceptively-named “Convention of States.” Oppose this convention because of its unpredictability and its high level of risk to our God-given Liberty. Trust in the Constitution established by our Founders and use its ordinary mechanisms, such as Article VI, to right the wrongs being perpetrated by unscrupulous individuals. Oppose a Convention of States as if our Republic depended on it, for it likely does.

I close with a quotation from Daniel Webster. Read it. Ponder it. Take it to heart. Cherish the blessings you enjoy under our current Constitution and never trust your Liberties to the care of 21st-Century politicians. Beware a Convention of States. BEWARE!

“Americans, you are the most privileged people that the sun shines on. The salutary influences of your climate are inferior to the salutary influence of your laws. Your soil, rich to a proverb, is less rich than our Constitution. Your rivers, large as the oceans of the old world, are less copious than the streams of social happiness which flow around you. Your air is not purer than your civil liberty, and your hills, though high as heaven and deep as the foundations of the earth, are less exalted and less firmly founded than that benign and everlasting religion which blesses you and shall bless your offspring. Amidst these profuse blessings of nature and of Providence, BEWARE! . . . you have everything to lose; you have nothing to gain. We live under the only government that ever existed which was framed by the unrestrained and deliberate consultations of the people. Miracles do not cluster. That which has happened but once in six thousand years cannot be expected to happen often. Such a government, once gone, might leave a void, to be filled, for ages, with revolution and tumult, riot and despotism.” – Daniel Webster, Independence Day oration, July 4, 1802.

Guns and God

“I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. – Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means.” – John Adams to Abigail Adams, July 3, 1776

Each mass shooting reminds us that we need more of two things: Guns and God. You have likely heard the saying that an armed society is a polite society. Years ago, I realized this concept needed to be amended thus: An armed and righteous society is a polite society. This article is a plea for us to add more guns and more God in our lives.

guns10

Guns or no guns, a God-fearing, decent, and righteous society will be one of peace, happiness, and security because “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12). Yet, because both evil and free will exist, even good, “turn-the-other-cheek” Christians must sometimes reluctantly take up arms to defend their Faith, Families, and Freedom. It has always been this way and it will remain the status quo until the Lord returns and cleanses the earth.

For all of history, patriots and prophets alike have had to wield the sword in defense of eternal truth, God-given rights, political Freedom, public morality, and societal stability. In ancient times, it was Jehovah’s peace-proclaiming prophets and the most righteous followers of the Gospel who were the first to stand up and fight for their rights. Whether you look at Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Elijah, Josiah, or any number of righteous figures of olden times, you find men willing to fight and to risk everything in defense of their rights, relatives, and religion.

Our honorable Founding Fathers also abhorred war and bloodshed, but they did their duty to God and their countrymen. They were great lovers of peace and knew the horrors of conflict. Yet, they also understood that it is better to die on your feet than live on your knees. Patrick Henry voiced their rallying cry in these treasured words, “give me liberty or give me death!” Consequently, they waged a holy war of self-defense against the British monarchists trying to subjugate them. If we are to vouchsafe to our own children the rights handed down to use by our forefathers, we must be equally prepared to fight.

patriots3

The purpose of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was to plainly and publicly affirm that individuals possess the right of self-defense which no government can justly deprive them of. In truth, the Second Amendment is not even about guns – it is about self-defense. Whether you defend yourself with a club, machete, rifle, machine gun, or bazooka makes absolutely no difference. We focus on guns because they are the gold standard in personal self-defense, but we must never lose sight of the underlying principle of self-defense which existed before the Constitution was ratified and will exist for all eternity.

Our forefathers knew that a sure sign that a government had evil intentions to reduce its people to slavery was its attempts to disarm them. Accordingly, when the American colonists saw British Redcoats marching to Lexington and Concord to arrest Samuel Adams and confiscate their cache of firearms, they turned out with their rifles to defend their rights like real men. The “shot heard ‘round the world” happened because Christians with guns knew their rights and had the integrity to defend them at the risk of their own lives. Yes, American Liberty was won because a small band of armed Christians had enough valor to do what was required of them. They kept their guns close and their God closer.

guns11

Many Christians today believe that they cannot take up arms even in self-defense. They erroneously think it violates the Gospel of Jesus Christ to defend their rights against evil men. And they certainly do not agree with our Founding Fathers who believed that rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God. Though “timid men . . . prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty” (Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei, April 24, 1796), I, as a Christian constitutionalist, understand that there are times I must defend my Faith, Family, and Freedom even to bloodshed. In so doing, I stand with our Founding Fathers who proved their noble words by their valiant actions. And I stand with the laws of nature and of nature’s God.

One of the great exponents of natural law was John Locke. In his Second Treatise on Civil Government, Locke described the rationale behind the right of self-defense thus:

“Whosoever uses force without Right . . . puts himself into a state of War with those, against whom he so uses it, and in that state all former Ties are cancelled, all other Rights cease, and every one has a Right to defend himself, and to resist the Aggressor.”

Self-defense is the most natural of rights. It is the one right that ensures all the others. Our rights, emanating from God, cannot be justly taken from us. When an attempt is made to deprive us of any right, the right of self-defense becomes operative. We who have been wronged have every prerogative to resist aggressors and would-be tyrants. Yes, the surest way to protect our general Freedom is through self-defense. Therefore, when we see this precious gem assaulted, we know that we are in danger.

death to tyrants1

John Adams spoke of a People’s right of self-defense. As you read his words, please understand that a nation has no rights but those which are possessed also by the individual citizens comprising the nation. Every nation derives its powers, as The Declaration of Independence attests, “from the consent of the governed.” With that in mind, consider this statement:

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant, in cases of necessity, can no more be doubted, than that to hang a robber, or kill a flea. But killing one tyrant only makes way for a worse, unless the people have sense, spirit, and honesty enough to establish and support a constitution guarded at all points against tyranny; against the tyranny of the one, the few, and the many. Let it be the study, therefore, of lawgivers and philosophers, to enlighten the people’s understandings and improve their morals, by good and general education; to enable them to comprehend the scheme of government, and to know upon what points their liberties depend; to dissipate those vulgar prejudices and popular superstitions that oppose themselves to good government; and to teach them that obedience to the laws is as indispensable in them as in lords and kings” (John Adams, “Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States,” 1787).

The right of an individual to kill a tyrant, robber, or aggressor, in cases of necessity, cannot be doubted. Our inspired Constitution has safeguarded our right of self-defense and tens of millions of Americans stand armed and ready to defend their Faith, Families, and Freedom. Yet, do we possess the morality, honesty, integrity, goodness, and righteousness necessary to balance and temper our arms? John Adams made it clear that improved morals must go hand-in-hand with the capacity and willingness to wage defensive war against tyrants and aggressors.

Speaking of the tyrannical forces encroaching upon our Liberty, the venerable Ezra Taft Benson stated:

“If America is to withstand these influences and trends, there must be a renewal of the spirit of our forefathers, an appreciation of the American way of life, a strengthening of muscle and sinew and the character of the nation. America needs guts as well as guns. National character is the core of national defense.”

George Washington18

Yes, we not only need our guns, but we need our God even more. Our moral character must be improved and cultivated as both Mr. Adams and Mr. Benson affirmed. We must become an armed and righteous society. Unless we cultivate morality at least proportionate to the number of arms we have, I fear that we will be led to turn our arms on each other in a scene of anarchy and mobocracy unrivaled in human history.

As Christians, we must lead the way to a peaceful resolution of societal differences, yet without sacrificing principle. Ours should be the loudest voices calling for peace, encouraging morality, promoting goodness, exposing corruption, and championing the Constitution. As Christians, we must show the world through our personal righteousness that an armed society really is a polite society. And, finally, Christians we must be the first to stand up in defense of Freedom – even, and perhaps especially, when it requires drawing the sword.

The Lord has not presently called His people, as a collective group, to wage war against the wicked. In fact, He tells us to proclaim peace. Yet, it is equally sure that Christians must be prepared to fight when the time comes. The moment of action may or may not come in the shape of a formal war. But it very well may come during the night as a thief attempts to plunder your home; during a worship service when a hate-filled assassin attempts to shoot up your congregation; in the office when a disgruntled employee seeks revenge; in the back alley when a rapist attempts to deprive you of your virtue; or on your drive home from work when a thug tries to victimize you. The point is that you never know when you will need to exercise your God-given right of self-defense; and you should always be prepared.

Millions of lives are saved each year because people care enough about themselves and their loved ones to keep and bear arms. How many more lives would be saved if more Americans carried weapons for their personal defense? How many families would today be enjoying the company of a loved one if they had only been prepared to defend themselves? How many more people have to die needlessly because employers and school administrators force their employees and students to be defenseless and helpless in the workplace and in the classroom? How long will America sit idly by as a small, ruthless clique campaigns to deprive us of our most important right, our right of self-defense?

guns9

In 1833, the great Joseph Story wrote that “the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a Republic” (see Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States). As the palladium, or safeguard, of our rights, the Second Amendment should hold a place of preeminence in our hearts. If it goes, our Freedom goes. And in order to properly wield the great power of arms placed in our hands, we must turn our hearts to God.

To counter criminals, evil people, and tyrants, we need more guns. We need more weapons in the workplace, in schools, in public, and everywhere there are people to be defended. And we need people trained in their competent use. Training at an early age breeds respect for the power and proper use of guns. The message that “guns are evil” only breeds fear and incompetence and, ultimately, leads to greater casualties and suffering.

Yes, I say that we need more guns in America! Yet, the proliferation of guns in our society will turn into a sore curse if we do not follow the commandments of Jesus Christ. If we are an immoral People, we will eventually be led to turn our firearms on each other in a fratricidal war. History proves this pattern as clear as any other. However, if we once again become a moral nation, our firearms will prove an extra safeguard on the evil passions and proclivities of unscrupulous men.

While most of us may not need to use our guns, doesn’t it give peace of mind to have them just in case? Which husband or father, or even wife or mother, would not rush to defend a beloved family member rather than watch them gunned down by the hand of evil? Who, in hindsight, would choose to be a helpless witness than a defender of innocence? Ezra Taft Benson once said something of the Lord’s law of chastity that is applicable to our conversation: “It is better to prepare and prevent than it is to repair and repent.”

Thankfully, we live in a nation established by Almighty God – a nation whose founding documents clearly safeguard our rights. Thankfully, we have a heritage of Freedom and can distinctly see the path marked by our forefathers. We have been given the right of self-defense, along with all other rights, and it is our solemn duty to make good use of it. How shameful it would be if we who have been given so many blessings, so much prosperity, and so much individual Liberty, threw it all away because we were not brave enough to defend ourselves and our families! Stand up and be men. Stand up and be Christians. Stand up for your rights!

guns4

In the wake of each new gun-related tragedy, the Establishment batters us with anti-rights propaganda in hopes will we grow so weary that we will surrender. The media flashes images of dead bodies and blood on our TV screens in order to shock and scare us into submission. Don’t fall for it. Don’t be victimized. Don’t be deceived by the masters of deceit. Stand for your Liberty no matter what pretext is used to persuade you to accept your chains. Know that you stand on the moral high ground when you stand with the Constitution. And keep your guns close and God even closer.

I leave you with these immortal words of Samuel Adams. It was a frank challenge to his countrymen at the outset of the War for Independence. Though he spoke more than 200 years ago, he might as well have been speaking to you and me. Ponder the words and decide once and for all whose side you’re on:

“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, What should be the reward of such sacrifices? Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship, and plow, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom—go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”

Censorship, Communism, and Common Sense

“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” – Thomas Paine, “A Dissertation on the First Principles of Government,” 1795

As of yesterday, May 23, yours truly has been yet again banned by the Facebook censorship team for thirty days. This is the third time in 2019 that I have been blocked for a thirty-day span. If you’re keeping track, that means I will have spent three of the first six months of this year in what people commonly refer to as “Facebook jail.” And what was I banned for this time? Read on to learn the answer and to inhale a little common sense and gain some historical perspective.

The last time I was banned by Facebook’s gang of Marxist bullies, it was because I shared – on my personal page months previous – an anti-communist Norwegian World War II poster. Heaven forbid we publicly condemn communism! After all, recent polls show that 4 in 10 Americans view socialism (communism with a smiley face) favorably.

My most recent run-in with Facebook’s secret police likewise centers on a post I made in a private World War II group I created called World War Truth 2.0. The 2.0 was added after Facebook permanently deleted my first World War Truth group (as well as an even earlier page on the same topic) for alleged “hate speech” (i.e. the unpopular truth). I reproduce the offending post verbatim below.

For context, remember that this post was made months ago in my private group, showing that Facebook is really fishing for excuses to silence people they hate. Since the group is devoted to teaching an objective history of World War II, I posted a number of historical pictures of Adolf Hitler and added a short commentary. Judge for yourself if it merits 30 days in Facebook’s digital GULAG:

7716694f8931aa5fa9c199721390b368

“A side of Hitler that perhaps you haven’t seen before. The picture that the controlled press likes to paint is that of a madman screaming at rallies. Hitler did put on a show at his rallies, but in everyday life he was calm and personable and loved being around his countrymen – especially the youth. Everyone who met him thought he was a talented, soft-spoken, knowledgeable gentleman of high culture. Winston Churchill, one of Hitler’s greatest enemies, said this about him in 1935:

230238

“”Those who have met Hitler face to face in public, business, or on social terms, have found a highly competent, cool, well-informed functionary with an agreeable manner, a discerning smile and few have been unaffected by a subtle personal magnetism. . . .

hitler-children

“”One may dislike Hitler’s system and yet admire his patriotic achievement. If our country were defeated I should hope we should find a champion as indomitable to restore our courage and lead us back to our place among the nations.”

“So, which mental image do you have in your head – that of a raving lunatic hell-bent on genocide and world domination, or that of a sincere and competent patriot trying his best to restore his nation?”

Adolf Hitler Arthur Kannenberg Harz mountain.jpg

That is the identical post that provoked the wrath of the Facebook gods. I’m curious, when did presenting an alternative view of historical events become a crime? When did sharing historical photos become taboo? When did it become wrong to quote Winston Churchill? After all, the substantive portion of my comment was a quote from Winston Churchill.

Was Churchill also guilty of “hate speech,” of which I am so frequently accused? Should we stop quoting men like Churchill because he may have said something that is unpopular or controversial to modern ears? Should we be punished for exercising peaceable speech on a taxpayer-subsidized platform like Facebook (or anywhere else for that matter)? Should we close our minds, shut up, and accept as gospel everything we are told by the Establishment?

The truth, of course, is that the corrupt global Establishment has a carefully-crafted “official version” of 20th Century history to protect – an egregiously false narrative that paints their Marxist ideology as Heaven-sent and all opposing ideologies, like Hitler’s brand of nationalism, as incontrovertibly evil. This is why they go out of their way to condemn and ruin anyone who says a contrary word about the Second World War, Hitler, Germany, or the sacrosanct “Holocaust.” Every honest and informed individual knows that the “official” narrative about World War II is bogus from stem to stern; yet don’t you dare point out this fact on social media or the Marxist controllers and their crowd of lemmings and dupes will pounce on you and smear you in classic Red fashion!

media5

I have observed an intriguing phenomenon among my fellow patriots and conspiracy researchers. They correctly say that you can’t trust the mainstream media and they devote much time to exposing the habitual lies. Yet, the moment the mainstream media mentions Hitler, World War II, or the “Holocaust,” these same skeptics suddenly fall into lock step with the media moguls and defend the Establishment’s narrative. Is this logical? Is this consistent with principle? Are you, dear reader, even as you decry the corruption of the media on one hand, a victim of the Establishment’s conditioning and brainwashing about World War II on the other?

Ask yourself this question: If the media lies about nearly everything else, which they do, then why would they tell the truth about Hitler, the Second World War, and the “Holocaust”? If they are consistently, routinely, habitually incorrect and biased in their reporting, which they are, then why is the subject of the Third Reich any different? What makes WWII off-limits for lying and biased reporting? If you are not skeptical about officialdom’s WWII narrative, then there is something seriously wrong with either your moral compass, your reasoning ability, or your fidelity to documentable truth. Please don’t be intellectually dishonest; admit that if the press is wrong about everything else, then their WWII reporting must be equally tainted.

It should be no big surprise at this late stage that the media is dominated by rabid communists. People use distracting terms like “liberal,” “democrat,” or “progressive,” but the media’s governing ideology is lifted straight from The Communist Manifesto. The media – including major news outlets, social media, Hollywood, publishing houses, and educational institutions – are part of an international network promoting the communist world revolution, albeit under names like “democracy,” “environmentalism,” and “gay rights.” Call it what you will, behind the mask is the dark face of Satanic communism.

communism21

Because the global Establishment is Marxist, they have a vested interested in discrediting men – no matter how long ago they lived – who fought the communist ideology and promoted moral principles, nationalism, and Independence. This is why Hitler has fallen under the ax. Contrary to what you may have been taught by uninformed or scheming school teachers, Hitler was not a Marxian socialist and his National Socialism bears almost no resemblance to Marxist-Leninist socialism. Hitler himself admitted to having used propaganda tactics that worked well in Soviet Russia, and he certainly courted the millions of communist voters in Germany, but his ideology was at odds with Bolshevism in nearly every way. In fact, Hitler may be said to have been the most anti-communist head of state in modern history.

Hitler’s fundamental ideas were anathema to communism. For instance, Hitler promoted the family unit and traditional gender roles, exalting the role of motherhood and making Germany one of the first nations to celebrate Mother’s Day. Conversely, communism seeks to abolish the family, warp gender roles, destroy the institution of marriage, and rip children from their parents’ care. Hitler promoted disciplined individualism; communism promoted rigid and forced collectivism. Hitler promoted an economic system that made Germany independent and wealthy; communism bankrupted Russia and sat as a parasite feeding off of funds stupidly and traitorously given by Western interests. And so forth.

In chapter four of Mein Kampf, Hitler recollected his early aversion to communism:

“In the years 1913 and 1914, in various circles, some of which today stand faithfully by the movement, I expressed for the first time the conviction that the question of the future of the German nation is the question of the destruction of Marxism.”

In a 1932 proclamation to the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), Hitler also stated:

“For seventy years, disreputable bourgeois parties in Germany have exhausted the power of the national idea and, to a large degree, left our Volk at the mercy of Marxism. For seventy years the parties of democracy and, in their wake, the strictly Christian Center Party, have helped to corrupt our Volk by practicing sodomy with the forerunners of Bolshevism.

“Today they are clinging with a reprehensible thirst for power to a regime which would no longer belong to them if their own significance alone were any measure.

“Were the National Socialist Movement to cease existing today as a counterbalance to Marxism, Germany would be Bolshevist tomorrow” (Adolf Hitler, New Year’s Proclamation to the Party, January 1, 1932).

SOKphRQp2fs7XjAlO03f_8kjrFhSP7-eissj_k38QsQ

And in an interesting interview, Hitler drew this distinction between his movement and Marxism:

“Socialism is the science of dealing with the common weal. Communism is not Socialism. Marxism is not Socialism. The Marxians have stolen the term and confused its meaning. I shall take Socialism away from the Socialists.

“Socialism is an ancient Aryan, Germanic institution. Our German ancestors held certain lands in common. They cultivated the idea of the common weal. Marxism has no right to disguise itself as socialism. Socialism, unlike Marxism, does not repudiate private property. Unlike Marxism, it involves no negation of personality, and unlike Marxism, it is patriotic.

“. . . We are not internationalists. Our socialism is national” (Adolf Hitler, interview with George Sylvester Viereck, 1923).

When you actually read Hitler’s own words, as opposed to the lying interpretations and synopses by Marxist “experts,” you are struck by how frequently and emphatically he spoke out against the communist conspiracy. He often called it a “Satanic” movement and at least once termed communism the “Red Plague,” a description I independently thought up and have used for years.

communism53

Hitler was not alone in his utter disdain of Marxism. The National Socialist leadership, and, indeed, the German people, were avowed enemies of communism. Rudolf Butmann, a caucus leader in the NSDAP, said of National Socialism:

“Our worldview is not directed against Catholicism or Protestantism, not against Christianity, but rather is based on Christianity and against cultural bolshevism, against the false liberalism of the Enlightenment, and against materialism” (Rudolf Butmann, January, 1931, in Richard Steigmann-Gall, The Holy Reich: Nazi Conceptions of Christianity, 1919-1945, 80).

Two additional quotes from Joseph Goebbels, chief minister of propaganda in the Third Reich, will drive this point home. The first is a lengthy excerpt from a phenomenal speech delivered by Mr. Goebbels. Space is limited here, but I encourage you to find and study the full text. Goebbels explained:

“[A]n astonishing misconception exists among the most prominent West European circles as to the danger which communism presents to the life of the individual and of the nation. . . .

“[T]he Propagandist Institutions of the Communist International are undoubtedly well organised and have not been unsuccessful in putting before the public of the world, outside of the Russian frontiers, an entirely false picture of Bolshevism. This picture is an extraordinarily dangerous one because of the tension which it can and must naturally cause. . . .

communism199

“International communism would entirely do away with all national and racial qualities which are founded in human nature itself; in property it sees the most primary cause of the breakdown of world trade in the capitalist system. Accordingly it exploits this through an extensive and carefully organised and brutal system of action, setting aside personal values and sacrificing the individual to a hollow mass-idol that is only a travesty of actual life itself. At the same time it ignores and destroys all the idealistic and higher strivings of men and nations, through its own crass and empty materialist principles. . . .

“Bolshevism is explicitly determined on bringing about a revolution among all the nations. In its own essence it has an aggressive and international tendency . . . Bolshevism denies religion as a principle, fundamentally and entirely. It recognises religion only as an “opium of the people.” . . . But the Bolshevics carry on a campaign, directed by the Jews, with the international underworld, against culture as such. Bolshevism is not merely anti-bourgeois; it is against human civilisation itself.

“In its final consequences it signifies the destruction of all the commercial, social, political and cultural achievements of Western Europe, in favour of a deracinated and nomadic international cabal which has found its representation in Judaism. This grandiose attempt to overthrow the civilised world is so much more dangerous in its effects because the Communist International, which is a past master in the art of misrepresentation, has been able to find its protectors and pioneers among a great part of these intellectual circles of Europe whose physical and spiritual destruction must be the first result of a Bolshevic world revolution.

communism74

“Bolshevism, which is in reality an attack on the world of the spirit, pretends to be intellectual itself. Where circumstances demand, it comes as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. But underneath the false mask which it here and there assumes, there are always the satanic forces of world destruction. And where it has had the opportunity of practising its theories it has created “The Paradise of the Workers and Peasants,” in the shape of a fearful desert of starving and hungering people. If we are to take the word of its doctrine then we find a terrible contradiction between its theory and its practice. Its theory is glowing and grandiose but it carries poison in its attractive gloss. Over against this, what we have from it in reality is terrible and forbidding. This is shown in the millions of sacrifices which have been made in honour of it, through executions with the sword, the axe or the hangman’s rope or hunger. . . .

“Swept clear of international enemies and united under the National Socialist standard, Germany placed herself at the head of the groups marshalled in the fight against the international bolshevisation of the world. Herein she is quite aware that she is fulfilling a world mission which reaches out beyond all national frontiers. On the successful issue of this mission depends the fate of our civilised nations. . . .

“If there is a spark of reason left in the world, and the faculty for clear thinking, then the states and peoples must be shocked at the prospect and induced to come together for their common defence against this acute danger.

“. . . [Bolshevism is a] world disease . . .

communism116.jpg

“Murder of individuals, murder of hostages and mass murder are the favourite means applied by Bolshevism to get rid of all opposition to its propaganda. . . .

“We have thus before our eyes a full picture of this fearful and harrowing mass terrorisation which is only approximately paralleled by even the most bloodcurdling examples of war or revolution that are recorded in the history of the world. This is the actual system of bloodshed and terror and death which is carried out by hysterical and criminal political maniacs who would have it copied in every country and among every people with the same terrorising practices, in so far as they might find the possibility of doing so. . . .

“Bolshevism is the declared enemy of all nations and of all religions and of all human civilisation. The World Revolution is now, as always, its acknowledged and proclaimed goal. . . .

“As far as we ourselves are concerned, we have completely overcome this menace. Indeed perhaps, outside of his work in Germany, the greatest service which our Führer has rendered the world is that here in Germany he has set up a barrier against world Bolshevism against which the waves of this vile Asiatic-Jewish flood break in vain. He has taught us not only to recognise Bolshevism as the world’s greatest enemy but also to meet it face to face and crush it. . . .

“History will one day give due credit to the Führer for having saved Germany from the most acute and deadly peril by overthrowing Bolshevism and thereby saving the whole civilisation of the West from the abyss that yawned before it. . . . .

“. . . this [is the] most decisive struggle that the history of the world has experienced” (Joseph Goebbels, speech, September 13, 1935, “Communism With the Mask Off”).

communism1

If that was not frank enough, a second quote sums up the National Socialist attitude towards Marxism:

“Bolshevism must be exterminated if Europe is to regain its normal state of health” (Joseph Goebbels, speech, “Bolshevism in Theory and Practice,” September 10, 1936).

Every honest and informed individual knows the unparalleled horrors, slaughters, and repressions that communism unleashed on the world. We do not need to recount them here. However, since some readers likely take umbrage at Goebbels’ reference to a Jewish connection to communism, I take a few paragraphs to explain the matter before I move on.

The Jewish affinity for communism is historically indisputable. For instance, Karl Marx, originally named Moses Mordecai Levy, was a Jew who hailed from a long line of rabbis. His political mentor, Moses Hess, was an infamous Jewish revolutionary and one of the founders of Zionism. Moses Hess bragged about turning Friedrich Engels – Marx’s cohort and frequent financier – from a Christian into a fiery atheist (Engels wasn’t the only man Hess converted into a radical).

bpdpRHL.jpg

In the early days and for generations thereafter, the leaders of the socialist/communist movement all over Europe were predominately Jews. Lenin was part-Jewish, self-identified as a Jew, and spoke Yiddish with his Jewish wife. Trotsky was a Jew. Stalin was not a Jew, but his second wife was, as well as most of the leaders inside the Bolshevik government, such as Yagoda, Kamenev, Zinoviev, Sverdlov, Radek, etc. The heads of the brutal GULAG concentration camps were nearly exclusively Jews. Some of the bankers and individuals who funded the Bolshevik coup in 1917 were Jewish. And so on and so forth.

So pronounced was the Jewish involvement in revolutionary communism that Winston Churchill was compelled to write an article exposing the cabal in 1920. He declared:

“There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin [whom recent research reveals to have part Jewish], the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders . . . In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combating Counter-Revolution has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany (especially in Bavaria), so far as this madness has been allowed to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people. Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing.”

Those were the words of Winston Churchill – the same figure whose respectful sentiments about Hitler got me banned from Facebook for thirty more days. Truth is offensive to the guilty. And Marxists hate nothing more than plain truth. Truth destroys their lies and their counterfeit system of Diabolism like holy water destroys Dracula. I encourage you to read Churchill’s full 1920 editorial reproduced by historian David Irving’s Focal Point Press here.

truth5

Now here is the point. You can dispute whether their Jewish heritage had anything to do with the communists’ acts of conspiracy, terror, murder, and repression, but it’s time we stopped suppressing the basic facts. Not only about this episode of history, but about all historical events. The documentable fact is in this case is that the majority of leading Bolsheviks were ethnic Jews. Not practicing or religious Jews (though many like Marx and Lenin were active Satanists), but ethnic Jews. Once we admit this, we can then examine seriously whether or not their Jewishness influenced anything at all or if it is just a fun historical tidbit. But please let’s not suppress facts. We are no better than the Marxists when we behave like that.

Since I raised the subject, you may be curious about my conclusion regarding the Jewishness of communism. My best research leads me to the conclusion that the international communist conspiracy is not Jewish despite the disproportionate number of Jews involved. Communism is, rather, Satanic. The golden thread that binds the high-level conspirators together is not their ethnicity or race, but their political-religious ideology and their devotion to their Dark Master. There are specific reasons why so many Jews are involved, mostly centering on their faith’s wholesale rejection of Jesus Christ, but suffice it to say that communism is not strictly Jewish; it is Satanic.

I now come back to my previous point about our historical blind spot regarding the Second World War and everything associated with it. Our lack of historical understanding leads us to draw wrong conclusions about events in our day. WWII, for instance, revealed plain as day the threat of world communism. A true rendering of WWII history would show that the Soviets brought about that conflagration through their internationally-positioned moles and agents, that their agents used the war to create the framework for a world government called the United Nations, and that the Soviet Union was the only true winner of the conflict. Germany’s invasion of the Soviet Union, if properly understood as a reluctant preemptive attack designed to thwart Stalin’s plan to invade and conquer all of Western Europe, hammers home the point that the communists and their allies were the real aggressors then and that it is in their nature to prey on other nations even today.

But the communists cannot afford to be seen as the bad guy. So, instead of allowing a free exchange of ideas and information, they silence their opposition, project their sins on others, and demonize those who fight most fiercely against them. They have done this with Hitler and the Germans and they do it today. I submit that if you truly understand communism and how it has historically operated, then you understand why I have been blocked for another thirty days by Facebook for doing nothing but sharing real history. I also submit that if you don’t understand communism, then you don’t quite comprehend Facebook’s petulant need to silence me, Alex Jones, and others like us.

People sometimes refer to Facebook as “Fascistbook,” but in truth it is communist. And it regards anything traditional, moral, upright, just, or nationalist as poison. It cannot afford to allow a positive or alternative view of anti-communist crusaders like Hitler to stand. That might cause people to question their usurped authority and their pretended prerogative to dictate what you believe and think. Therefore, communism’s enemies must be attacked and demeaned, and their supporters silenced. Unless they can make people like me disappear, they know the truth will ultimately prevail and their house of cards will come crumbling down on top of them.

communism43

It is time that my fellow patriots and conspiracy buffs wake up and realize that the media lies not only about “conservatives” and figures like the Founding Fathers, but that they also lie about men like Adolf Hitler and events like Pearl Harbor and the “Holocaust.” Do not be guilty of condemning media bias in absolutely everything but then fall into lock step with them like hypnotized drones when they talk about Hitler’s Germany. Stop falling for the old Marxist lies about Germany, the Third Reich, and World War II. Do the research for yourself, use the brain God gave you, and deal in facts rather than supposition and character assassination.

No matter how many times Facebook shuts down my pages and groups, I will not be silenced. Even if I am wrong at times, as many of you think I am, I have a right to be wrong without being silenced. I have a right to share historical photos and quotes from influential world leaders like Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, or whomever. I have a right to question the media and to challenge the Establishment’s narrative of historical events that still affect our lives today.

Facebook receives billions in tax subsidies and cannot be considered a private entity. They have no right to silence people who merely have a different opinion and who have not called for violence or violated legitimate public decency laws. If they silence me, why can’t they silence you? If you do not stand up for me, why should I stand up for you? It’s a two-way street, my friend.

We are all in this together. We must all band together against the communist menace – yes, even if that means admitting that Hitler was not quite the “Devil incarnate” that his Marxist enemies allege. The company you keep is not half as important as the principles you keep. And when even those people whom we do not like stand with us in this titanic battle against the Red Plague, we should stand with them, at least in this respect.

fI2AyUZR6DDTSl-3im-_BW8NTLHBHAzupjRlSDm81rY

Those who will not stand up against the communist conspiracy and its assault on our Faith, Families, and Freedom are enemies to the Republic and to humanity. Don’t be numbered among that group. Stand up and challenge the corrupt Marxist Establishment, even if it means rubbing shoulders with unusual company or bringing down the enemy’s wrath upon you. Stand up and be counted for Freedom! And God bless you in your sincere efforts.

What is Truth?

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” – Galatians 4:16

What is truth? This fundamental question has been debated through the ages. Truth is often obscured behind a smokescreen of lies and distortions. Because of concerted efforts to obscure truth, many people have become weary of searching for it. Our modern society, plagued by a Marxist mindset, has gone so far as to reject the notion of truth entirely. All things are relative and subjective, we allege. Yet, for those willing to accept it, there is a simple and eternal answer to the question, “What is truth?”

In a modern revelation, the Lord defined truth thus:

“And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;

“And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:24-25).

Automatically, many of you who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that enjoys this refreshing revelation will dismiss it as fickle fantasy or Devilish delusion. Yet, whether you believe the verity that God speaks to man today and reveals His will to prophets as He anciently promised that He would (Amos 3:7), you must admit the logical soundness of this definition. Truth is, simply, a knowledge of the reality of all things. It is an accurate description of the nature and veracity of things as they really are and as they really will be.

Truth is eternal. Truth does not change. Truth does not bend to popular opinion. Truth is a constant now and forever regardless of popularity or application. We may say that if a thing is not eternal, it is not truth. Naturally, then, we cannot speak of all things as “truth.” A temporary and fleeting thing might be deemed “true,” but it is not necessarily truth.

Truth is of higher-than-normal importance and includes such things as eternal laws, principles, and realities. Facts, if they are indeed true, will never change. If something was true yesterday, it will be true today, and it will be true tomorrow.

Being immutable and unalterable, truth commands our approval and recognition. In all things, we should seek to obtain, promote, and defend truth. It doesn’t matter if we dislike it or if it is unpopular. Truth does not care about your feelings. Truth does not consider your situation. Truth merely is. It is simply the reality of things as they were, are, and are to come.

All truth is not of equal value. It might be true that you ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch. But is that “truth” in the sense we are discussing? Is that as important or meaningful as the reality that God exists, for instance? One of our never-ending tasks in life is to discern trivial truths from imperative ones – and then cherish and follow the impactful truths. We must come to learn what is truly important and what is not; what is eternally relevant and what is fleeting.

truth4

Truth is of such significance that the Lord was able to declare “the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). He understood this better than anyone, for He is the sovereign Lord of truth. When the hardhearted Jews sought to kill Him for His teachings, He boldly testified of the source of His doctrine:

“[Y]e seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God” (John 8:40).

All truth, ultimately, comes to us from Almighty God via the Holy Spirit. In fact, it can come in no other way. John taught:

“And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:6).

The Spirit – not our meager intellects, physical senses, or instruments of science – conveys truth. Truth, being eternal, cannot be learned through temporal means. It is vain for the man of science or the doubting atheist to demand “proof” of God’s existence, for God can only be known through the individual revelations of His Spirit to your spirit and cannot be quantified.

Furthermore, His Spirit does not give you sacred revelations if you do not ask for them or if He knows that you would not be humble enough to accept and follow them if received. “Ask, and it shall be given you,” we are told (Matthew 7:7). But only ask in faith and with the sincere willingness to follow any answer received or your petition will go unanswered.

As noted, truth is eternal. All truth harmonizes with itself. A revelation of truth from God in New Testament times cannot contradict a truth revealed in Old Testament times, and vice versa. By the same token, if it was true 2,000 years ago that “the Spirit is truth,” then God would reveal the same verity to modern man. This principle of eternal consonance bears itself out in a contemporary revelation through the Prophet Joseph Smith. In that revelation, the Lord explained:

“For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ” (Doctrine and Covenants 84:45).

And again, the Savior has declared:

“The Spirit of truth is of God. I am the Spirit of truth. . . .

“The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:26, 36).

His testimony of Himself has always been the same. During His earthly ministry, the Lord taught:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

If we come to Christ and seek the Spirit, we will know that Jesus spoke the truth. All truth comes from the same source. And spiritual truth can only be learned through the Holy Spirit. Now, as always, “the right way is to believe in Christ” (2 Nephi 25:29).

Here are a few truths I have learned for myself through the Holy Spirit, or the Spirit of truth. I know these things are real and I testify of their authenticity with all the passion and energy of my soul.

I know that my Heavenly Father exists, that His Son Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of mankind, that the Holy Ghost actively imparts truth to those who listen with an open heart are willing to heed His promptings, and that these are three separate, personal Beings who tirelessly work for our salvation.

I know that I am a literal child of God who once lived in His presence and that He loves me.

I know that the Lord’s words “shall not pass away” (Mark 13:31) because they are truth and truth is eternal.

I know that the Holy Bible, when accurately rendered and properly interpreted, is the divine word of God.

I know that The Book of Mormon is true scripture revealed by Heaven and that it supports and clarifies the Bible’s witness that Jesus is the Christ and that it is only through Christ’s atoning blood and mercy that we are saved.

I know that the Lord reveals His will to mankind today through living prophets and that at this current time the Lord’s prophet, seer, and revelator on earth is a man named Russell M. Nelson.

I know that the U.S. Constitution was inspired by the Lord and that it is the only political document on earth that bears His divine stamp of approval.

I know that our Founding Fathers were good, honorable, and wise men – devout Christians raised up by God to establish the first free nation in modern times.

I know that the United States of America, despite her glaring flaws, is the greatest nation on earth and constitutes a Promised Land and the Lord’s base of operations in these last days of turmoil before His return in glory.

I know that communism is Satan’s counterfeit to the Lord’s Gospel and to His Plan of Freedom and that it is the greatest threat to mankind.

And I know that the Lord has already triumphed over Satan and that all of Satan’s schemes will eventually fail, regardless of how dominant they appear today.

I don’t know all things perfectly, but these things I do know with unshakable surety. I testify of them. I give my personal witness of their validity and truthfulness. I testify that the Holy Ghost has born witness to my soul of these things. I will wear out my life defending them and promoting them because I know, even if others do not, that they are true.

What is truth? Truth is a knowledge of things as they really are now and in eternity. Truth is eternal. Truth emanates from God. Truth can be learned only through the ministration of the Holy Spirit. Truth will triumph over all lies in the end. And because it reigns eternally victorious over all error and centers in Jesus Christ, the truth shall make us free.

Our Majestic World

“Consider the lilies of the field. . . . even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” – Matthew 6:28-29

On April 12th of this year, I married my best friend, the gorgeous Emma Ramos. A few days later, we embarked on a two-week honeymoon to Europe. During our trip, we saw some of the most famous attractions Europe has to offer. I decided to write this article to share an observation I made years ago, but which I had confirmed and reinforced in a powerful way on this trip.

While in Europe, I saw many spectacular works of art and engineering prowess. I viewed Rome’s indomitable Colosseum, the extensive Vatican museums with their timeless treasures, the Sistine Chapel and numerous grand churches and cathedrals, Mussolini’s obelisk, the man-made island of Venice with its watery lanes and elegant gondolas, the Hohensalzburg Fortress in picturesque Austria, the iconic fairy-tale castle in Bavaria, and other incredible feats of human ingenuity, expertise, and imagination. However, the most exquisite, breathtaking, and awe-inspiring works of craftsmanship I witnessed were not those created by men, but those created by God.

As amazing as castles, cathedrals, and monuments are, nothing man has yet conceived compares with the simple grandeur of the earth our Lord organized for us. The majestic Alps of Switzerland, the turquoise rivers of Bavaria, and the perpetually green hills of central Italy eclipse in greatness, stature, and potency the towering stone walls, marble pillars, and painted ceilings of even the greatest of human inventions.

Overlooking the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwanstein Castles in Bavaria

As I left behind the Romans’ grandest edifices and watched Italy’s green, hilly countryside fly passed my train window, I felt a greater stirring in my soul for nature’s loveliness than man’s cleverness. As I moved from the notable cities of Venice and Milan into the Swiss Alps, the stark contrast between human and Heavenly architecture became at once apparent. And as I hiked the mountain overlooking King Ludwig II’s stunning castles, what struck me most was not the stone and mortar below, but the Bavarian mountains, lakes, and forests stretching out in all directions in a peaceful panoramic with few equals.

In Switzerland, I experienced the peace and quiet I so thoroughly enjoyed while living in Alaska. Those who spend their whole lives living in sprawling cities cannot appreciate the life-giving nature of peace and quiet inherent in rural settings. You do not go to Rome, New York, or Tokyo to sit down in the street and imbibe the atmosphere. Yet, you are impelled, almost in spite of yourself, to sit down in a flower-bedecked field in the mountains and soak in the radiant peace, splendor, and pleasantness. You simply cannot buy or artificially simulate the peace and quiet of God’s outdoor sanctuaries. You must go there and experience it for yourself.

While palaces, shrines, and medieval fortresses fascinate me immensely, the feeling of wonder fades with time. However, the impressions I get while gazing at a snow-caped mountain, watching a river snake through a valley, or listening to birds sing while smelling the aroma of trees and flowers are deep and lasting. I greatly appreciate the centuries of history contained in the Egyptian museum in Vatican City, the surreal spectacles witnessed by the mighty walls of the Colosseum, and the meticulous planning required to construct the Neuschwanstein Castle in its awesome Alpine perch. Yet, what superior detail, planning, and thought must go into creating a single mountain! And that is to say nothing of an entire earth brimming with so much beauty that we can scarcely comprehend and which no mortal can ever experience in totality. What’s more, there are “worlds without number” (Moses 1:33) waiting to be explored in the future time of the Lord.

Mürren, Switzerland

The human mind fails to comprehend the sheer majesty of the mountain ranges, forests, lakes, rivers, jungles, plains, deserts, and seas that beautify and give splendid variety to our world. And few recognize the eloquent sermons our Savior preaches to us every second of every day through His skies, stars, eclipses, auroras, sunsets, clouds, rainbows, mountains, streams, waterfalls, trees, flowers, and greenery. The greatest painters and photographers have tried but failed to capture even minuscule snapshots of this indescribable beauty. The best we can do is feebly imitate what the Lord has fashioned so skillfully for our satisfaction.

It is prideful and arrogant to suggest that this magnificent earth came into being through the fortuitous chance of some unfathomable “big bang.” It is still more incomprehensibly vain and arrogant to suggest that human beings evolved over billions of years through a cosmic role of the dice and that our little earth is the only one out of trillions of other planets we have observed with our relatively weak scientific instruments that has intelligent life. It is little more than ingratitude and ignorance to suggest that there is not a superintending power – an intelligent design – responsible for crafting our world, the beauty and order in it, and the ultimate masterpiece that is man to enjoy it.

Spiez, Switzerland

An ancient prophet of our Lord Jesus Christ, an upright man named Alma, used the very existence of our earth to testify to an unbeliever that God exists. He said:

“And now what evidence have ye that there is no God, or that Christ cometh not? I say unto you that ye have none, save it be your word only.

“But, behold, I have all things as a testimony that these things are true; and ye also have all things as a testimony unto you that they are true; and will ye deny them? . . . .

“. . . The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a supreme creator” (Alma 30:40-41, 44).

The writer of Psalms used similar logic when he testified:

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalm 19:1).

And Moses, having grown up surrounded by the worldly opulence of the pharaohs, marveled in these words after seeing the Lord’s creations in vision:

“Now, for this cause, I know that man is nothing, which thing I never had supposed” (Moses 1:8-10).

Even though man and all his fancy inventions are “nothing” when compared to our God’s simple majesty and intrinsic glory, yet we are His most prized possessions – His greatest handiwork! We are His literal children. You are a literal son or daughter of your literal, living Father in Heaven. We belong to His family and He loves us and wants to share all He has and is with us (Romans 8:16-17). You and I are created in His holy image and possess a part of His attributes and nature (Genesis 1:26). Our physical form and natural abilities show, if only in small measure, what and who our Eternal Father really is.

Jesus Christ – Gentle Touch by Karen Foster

Our Elder Brother, the Lord Jesus Christ, also showed what we may become if we walk the path outlined by God. The path is the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all of its empowering covenants, ordinances, and blessings. And this beautiful earth which we are so privileged to live on was designed for us as a grand tutorial and a staging ground for eternity. We are here to learn how to successfully walk the only path that leads to the abundant life here and hereafter (John 10:10).

From the beginning, God has declared that “this is my work and my glory – to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39). His assurance has been supported by the witness of the holy prophets. Nephi, for instance, declared:

“He doeth not anything save it be for the benefit of the world; for he loveth the world, even that he layeth down his own life that he may draw all men unto him. Wherefore, he commandeth none that they shall not partake of his salvation. . . .

“. . . he doeth that which is good among the children of men; and he doeth nothing save it be plain unto the children of men; and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile” (2 Nephi 26:24, 33).

Yes, the Lord loves us! From the east to the west, and from the north to the south, the Lord has placed masterpieces of beauty for our edification and enjoyment. The majestic mountains of Switzerland, the tropical jungles of Panama, and the fruited plains of America continuously beckon to us, encouraging us to remember God and to recognize that we are His children. The spires of the mountains and tops of the trees point upward as if telling us to look up to Heaven and point our souls to eternity.

For all of man’s engineering marvels, and there are many which justifiably thrill us, the greatest artwork this world has to offer is not to be found in artificial cities and urban environments. Rather, the greatest sermons, masterpieces, and marvels are found in the simplicity and grandeur of nature. “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof” affirmed David (Psalm 24:1). It is my witness that this is true. And it is my plea that you will take every opportunity to unplug from the false reality of the internet, leave behind the concrete jungles, and soak in the majestic world God has provided for us. God bless you to appreciate whose son or daughter you are and to understand why you have the privilege of living on this expertly-crafted, endlessly inspiring, and infinitely beautiful globe we call home.

Truth Doesn’t Sell

Here’s a secret you may not know: Truth doesn’t sell. Not very well, anyhow. A general rule of thumb is that when you see national best-selling or major award-winning books, they do not present the full picture. Of course, this does not apply in every case. However, by and large, the books that present “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” about how our world operates and who pulls the strings behind the scenes do not become the best sellers and their authors are not household names. This is the tragic reality in our age of universal deceit.

truth-1080x767

The big-name conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Sean Hannity often do good work and help inform people on many important topics. They are generally fun to listen to and sometimes they even flip back a corner of the curtain and give glimpses of what’s really going on. However, these types of de facto celebrities stop short. They are half measures. They do not part the curtain of secrecy far enough or long enough to reveal who is really running our world into the ground.

To these big-name conservative figures, the culprit for everything wrong is “the Democrats” – and possibly a “Rino” Republican now and then. Or it might be the Hollywood celebrities or CNN commentators. Some even go so far as to identify the Marxist billionaire George Soros as the root of all evil (this last deduction is closer to reality, but falls short nonetheless).

Yet, these same media personalities, talking heads, and best-selling authors never speak of the Order of Illuminati, the Masonic elite, the Sabbatean-Kabbalists, the Jesuits, the New Age gurus, Lord Maitreya and the Ascended Masters, the Tavistock Institute, the Round Table groups, Luciferianism, Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA), or Satanic communism. They don’t name-drop figures like Helena Blavatsky, Albert Pike,  Moses Hess, Lord Rothschild, Jacob Schiff, Annie Besant, and Benjamin Creme. And they don’t dare utter the word “conspiracy” unless they’re commenting on lower level conspiracies or denouncing people like me as “conspiracy theorists” for suggesting that their worldview isn’t perfectly correct, that vaccines aren’t completely safe, that 9/11 wasn’t carried out by a handfull of Arabs with boxcutters, that JFK wasn’t killed by a physics-defying bullet, or that, God forbid, Israel isn’t God’s holy Kingdom on earth.

conspiracy

Furthermore, these mainstream media voices only give you a cursory look at some very important subjects, often omitting the salient facts. For instance, you have doubtless heard of the Federal Reserve and know how it prints money out of thin air. And maybe you are even privy to the fact that it is a privately-owned entity and not federal at all. But do you know that the Federal Reserve plan was concocted by a literal conspiracy of powerful men using aliases and meeting secretly on Jekyll Island three years prior to the fraudulent passing of the Federal Reserve Act? Certainly you won’t see the details of that fateful conspiracy discussed in best-selling books or on prime-time radio and TV.

The talking heads are often deceived and thus present a very stunted view of history – a false view that leads to numerous wrong assumptions in other matters. For instance, you have heard the conservative champions repeat over and over and over that President Reagan won the Cold War, that we defeated the Evil Empire, that capitalism triumphed over communism, and that socialism “always fails.” Each and every one of these assertions is patently, verifiably, and utterly false.

communism-topic-gettyimages-89856241

As I have painstakingly documented in my books and articles over many years, the Soviet Union did not collapse. The fake “fall” of the USSR came about according to a long-rang plan instituted by the Soviets decades prior as forewarned by numerous defectors such as Anatoliy Golitsyn and confirmed in the blunt writings and speeches of conspirators like Mikhail Gorbachev. The Soviets faked their demise not because they were in a weak position, but because they occupied the high ground and needed one final ruse to get the West to disarm and go to sleep. And does socialism really fail? True, it fails to provide its adherents with prosperity, happiness, or Freedom, but that is by design. The goal of socialism (which is nothing but a wing of the greater communist conspiracy) is to enslave, destroy, and control – all of which is does so masterfully. In fact, so thoroughly successful has communism/socialism been that quite literally every government on planet earth has adopted socialist principles and policies. Our own Republic, the last bastion of any semblance of Liberty and the final hope for humanity, has adopted all ten planks of The Communist Manifesto to one degree or another. Yet we are to believe the voices on the radio when they say “communism is dead,” “capitalism won,” and “there is no communist conspiracy” today.

These conservative celebrities also have a weak sense of discernment when it comes to certain historical figures who served the conspiracy. For instance, Martin Luther King, Jr. is held up almost universally as a role model despite the fact that he was an immoral, lying, communist agitator who plagiarized his doctoral theses, rubbed shoulders with known communist agents, and tried to stir up violence and race war despite his public claims to the contrary. When it comes to judging people by the true content of their character, these big-name figures frequently fail. And because the blind are leading the blind, a lot of people are falling into the ditch (Matthew 15:14).

Again I note that the big names will not touch conspiracies. When they do, it is to scoff or to tell people off for believing in them. They don’t dare discuss alternative theories about 9/11, the Oklahoma City Bombing, the JFK assassination, Sandy Hook, the “Holocaust,” and countless other incidents where the “official” version of events lacks the ring of truth and falls flat. They don’t talk about the Illuminati-Masonic-Kabbalist conspiracy concocted at the 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad. They won’t even detail the more modern manifestation of this conspiracy – the communist world revolution. They might talk about the symptoms of the disease – feminism, environmentalism, international terrorism, modern liberalism, etc., – but they don’t connect them to their true, Satanic, conspiratorial source.

2599357_0

For all the good they do, and they indeed do a fair amount of good, the well-known conservative authors and radio personalities fall short. They don’t paint the bigger picture for their audience. Like an annoyingly incomplete jigsaw puzzle, they don’t have enough of the pieces for you to make out the complete image. God bless them for the people they help, but I pray the Lord opens their eyes to see the bigger picture so that they can then take their audience the rest of the way down the road to comprehension of the enemy we face; for we must first correctly identify the enemy before we can defeat him.

Yes, you know Limbaugh, Savage, Beck, and the whole gang. You hear their names almost daily. However, you may not know the names of some of the best researchers out there who raise their voices against conspiracy, write books on critical subjects, and advocate the truth in an articulate way. Among others, political analyst Joel Skousen, researcher Jake Morphonios, radio host Jeff Rense, and authors Ken Bowers, Henry Makow, Deanna Spingola, MS King, Thomas Goodrich, and John Coleman, do tremendous work. Scores of other authors and rabble-rousers such as myself are even less well-known, yet use all available resources to trumpet the truth. And outlets such as World Affairs Brief, Blackstone Intelligence, ZeroHedge, the Washington Free Beacon, The Liberty Daily, Tomato Bubble, and Rense are targets for both the corrupt Establishment and their Social Justice Warrior lackeys, and mainstream conservatism, because they approach near to the truth. You know you’re over the target when you start taking flak.

353a97b8ad6273f8da816e204f376fef

When will conservatives wake up? When will conservative teachers and radio gurus fully commit to the battle and dare to tell the full truth? When will Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and the others start researching and teaching the pertinent reality about the Illuminati, the Jesuit Order, the New Age movement, Lord Maitreya, Skull and Bones, the Council on Foreign Relations, Freemasonry, the Bohemian Club, and every other clique and secret order advocating that foul, pagan, communist ideology? God help conservative America wake up before it is too late!

Ultimately, only a hardened segement of Christian constitutionalists can save our Republic from total ruin. Only alert, awake, and active Americans who understand the occult conspiracy trying to enslave us can, with God’s help, prevent our total subjugation. Only the voluntary sacrifice of our all on the altar of Freedom, truth, and right is sufficient to regain our Independence.

America12

I leave you with a factual statement from Ronald Reagan that applies more today than when he said it in his classic 1964 speech “A Time for Choosing.”

“Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? . . . If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he’ll eat you last.

“If all of this seems like a great deal of trouble, think what’s at stake. We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. . . .

“. . . If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.

“. . . Where, then, is the road to peace? Well, it’s a simple answer after all.

“You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” There is a point beyond which they must not advance. . . .

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”
