Women Then and Now

The problem with feminism, I think the principal problem, is the cultivation of an attitude of victimization. Feminism tries to make women believe they are victims of an oppressive, male-dominated, patriarchal society. They wake up in the morning with a chip on their shoulder.” – Phyllis Schlafly

What I’ll write today will offend feminists; and I’m ok with that. The lyrics “if I offended you, you needed it” come to mind. Sometimes we need to be jarred awake before we realize we’re wrong. Awakening must happen before change can occur.

To commemorate International Women’s Day, I offer this blunt rebuke of feminists everywhere. I seek to compare what society was like before “Women’s Liberation” and after. It will be obvious by the end of this comparison that “Women’s Liberation” means world subjugation.

Feminism is a diseased mindset. It is a philosophy of perversion, selfishness, and rebellion that is eroding civilization by undermining its basic unit – the patriarchal family. But before we deal directly with feminism and the havoc it has wrought, let’s examine life before women decided to deny their nature, rebel against God’s laws, and destroy society in their quest for so-called “equality.”

Before the advent of Marxist-inspired feminism, women were treated like queens and womanhood was highly cherished. It is one of the great feminist myths that before feminism women were chattel; mere property of oppressive men. Feminists deride their ancestors by calling them “domestic servants” or “doormats.” What Marxist-minded women see as “oppression,” however, was authentic Liberty. The stark reality is that women in the past were freer, happier, and more powerful than their modern counterparts.

From the beginning of time, God designated women as wives, homemakers, and mothers. They were to submit to their husbands as their husbands submitted to God. They were to be “help meets” to their husbands, bear and raise children, and provide a loving atmosphere for growth, service, and character-building in the home. A woman’s calling, when properly understood, is the highest and holiest calling.

With this scriptural comprehension of a woman’s role and mission in mind, it is perfectly understandable that women were expected by past societies to embrace wifehood and motherhood. All of society was predicated upon the idea of the traditional home, in which the woman played a decisive role.

The Christian philosopher and author C.S. Lewis wrote in 1955 of the overarching importance of a woman’s role. His statement captures the high regard in which former societies held women. He wrote to a Mrs. Johnson the following:

[A] housewife’s work . . . is surely, in reality, the most important work in the world. What do ships, railways, mines, cars, government etc exist for except that people may be fed, warmed, and safe in their own homes? As Dr Johnson said, ‘To be happy at home is the end of all human endeavour’. (1st to be happy, to prepare for being happy in our own real Home hereafter: 2nd, in the meantime, to be happy in our houses.) We wage war in order to have peace, we work in order to have leisure, we produce food in order to eat it. So your job is the one for which all others exist.”

This was the attitude that men and women in the pre-feminist world shared. They knew that the woman’s role was central not only to the smooth flow of society, but to the very continuance of the species. Men cherished women and women embraced their nature.

Authors Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly wrote in their phenomenal book The Flipside of Feminism, from which I will quote generously in this article, that far from being oppressed, American women have been the most blessed class of people on planet earth. They wrote of the power women possessed in the past:

Women of yesteryear had enormous power, just of a different variety. Today when we talk about power, we’re referring to money and status. That makes sense, for this kind of power reflects modern values. In the past, when marriage and family took center stage, women were exalted on the home front. Husbands deferred to wives on virtually all household matters, including child rearing. Women were revered for their unique sensibilities” (Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know – and Men Can’t Say, 89).

These two ladies further reasoned in this way:

Despite the failures of the feminist movement, it did have one powerful effect: it eradicated the power women once had over men! Before the 1960s, Americans understood that women had something men wanted, needed, and couldn’t have without a woman’s consent: sex and his own children. By equating sex with love, as women naturally do, men become better human beings – and society is better for it. “Without a durable relationship with a woman, a man’s sexual life is a series of brief and temporary exchanges. With love, sex becomes refined by selectivity. The man himself is refined, and his sexuality becomes not a mere impulse but a commitment in society, wrote George Gilder in Men and Marriage.

Now that feminism has eliminated men’s need and desire to marry, the relationship between the sexes is unstable” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 76-77).

In former times, women held much power. As Venker and Schlafly note, however, it was of a different variety. The sphere in which women held so much sway was the most important sphere of all – the home. While men are appointed by Almighty God to be the patriarchs and heads of their homes and to take the lead in providing the necessities of life, in Gospel study, in discipline, in home defense, and so forth, women are the beating heart that keeps a family vibrant and thriving. Their tender influence is vital.

A virtuous woman who could keep house and raise orderly, respectful children was treasured and sought after by honorable men. Honorable men throughout all of human history have fought mightily to defend good women. Disney’s Mulan, though an overtly feminist tale, shared a great truth when the soldiers sang: “What do we want? A girl worth fighting for!” Women have traditionally been so highly valued that men of all races, creeds, and nations have voluntarily laid down their lives by the millions to keep them safe – and more so when they bore and cared for their children.

Our ancestors were far more committed to the doctrines of Christ than we are, which largely accounts for the unparalleled success of Western civilization. They knew of the woman’s honored role in the Gospel Plan. They knew that women are co-creators with God and that motherhood is the highest and holiest calling in eternity. Our Christian forefathers also valued good women because they read the following words in their Bibles:

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. . . .

Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. . . .

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised” (Proverbs 31:10-12, 25-28, 30).

The Bible is clear that a good woman’s worth is “far above rubies.” Women who humbly embrace their divinely-appointed roles as wives, homemakers, and mothers “shall be praised” for eternity. Their children and husbands will “call [them] blessed” and praise them for their selfless service in the home, and, by extension, in society and the world.

Women of the past knew that “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” They understood that if they wanted to change the world, they could do so most effectively from quiet of their own homes. They knew that raising good children who possess manners, character, virtue, industry, and discipline will do more to change the world than a hundred lifetimes working as lawyers, CEOs, or politicians. Feminism has robbed women of their true power and influence over society by luring them out of the home and away from their God-appointed mission.

Let’s underscore a precious truth: American women have traditionally been the most blessed, privileged, pampered, and doted upon group of women in world history. No women have ever had it better. No women have ever lived in a wealthier, freer, and more advanced society. No women have ever had a greater chance for good in the world than those who call the USA their home.

Yes, women of the past – those modest, classy, feminine, submissive, humble, home-oriented women upon whom modern feminists look with scorn – were blessed and privileged beyond measure. They were happier. They were more fulfilled by being mothers in the home than modern women are by working 9-5 desk jobs. And they were more loved, cared for, and protected by men.

Since the feminist virus infected society, the situation has radically changed. Our women have abdicated their ruby-studded thrones by engaging in demeaning and vicious conduct and entertaining anti-Christian ideals. They reject modesty, femininity, and elegance in favor of raucous immodesty and unlady-like conduct. They dress like hookers. They march nude in the streets. They act like petulant little children and screech about how they are such “victims.” In truth, they have only victimized themselves by fighting for an “equality” which was achieved on day one and embracing rebellious, unwomanly behavior.

Equality itself is a myth. It is a communist slogan designed to play upon people’s emotions. In, the only equality that exists is in the eyes of God and under the law. All other so-called “equality” is a lie. Achieving across-the-board “equality” has been the dream of Karl Marx and his co-conspirators in all ages. They want to make everyone equally poor, equally enslaved, and equally miserable. They do this by denying human nature and attempting to artificially force everyone to be the same, which they deem “equality.” Because their scheme denies human nature, it can never work to produce a happy, healthy, free, or successful society.

before-feminism-after-feminism-_happy-inside-_-smiles-when-someone-25922806

Let’s be honest: Some humans are better than others. Note that I did not say some humans have more value than others. We are each beloved sons or daughters of our Eternal Father and have limitless potential. I wrote an entire book, The Lineage of the Gods, to convince people that they can be far more than they think they can.

Rather, what I mean is that some people are simply more competent, more disciplined, more virtuous, more intelligent, more talented, and, accordingly, attain to a higher level of success, goodness, and greatness. There is nothing wrong with this type of inequality. It is the fruit of real Freedom. And there is nothing any government ever devised can do to thwart human nature and put every individual on par with all others. No matter how they might try, there will always be those who are lazy, inept, unintelligent, immoral, and bad – those whose aptitudes and choices earn for them a lower level of glory and reward than their fellows both here and hereafter.

Feminists exemplify this flawed Marxist attitude by always screeching about “equality.” In their book, Venker and Schlafly remarked:

Those who believe women in America have not yet achieved equality or that American women are somehow oppressed and need government intervention to level the playing field, think they’re fighting a nation that has wronged them. In reality, they are fighting human nature” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 178).

Another time, these two observant women noted:

The problem with the sexual revolution is that it was predicated on the lies that gender differences don’t exist and that women want what men want. In fact, there was no need for a movement to make men and women equal because they already were equal – different, but equal. The real reason female Democrats tell American women “there is still much work to be done,” as Beth Frerking does in Secrets of Powerful Women, is that they refuse to admit feminism failed. When you desperately want something to happen and it doesn’t, there is always more work to be done. Women on the left are trying to force a square peg into a round hole” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 77).

Equal but different – a perfect phrase. We are each precious children of our Heavenly Father and equally loved by Him, and we are each endowed by Heaven with the equal rights, but in all other ways, we are different. Men and women have different desires. We see things differently. Our minds work differently. Our biology is different. Men tolerate pain and physical stress better than women do. Men fight better and excel more at sporting competitions. Women are naturally more nurturing and usually have a greater level of empathy and tenderness. Both genders – and there are only two genders regardless of what the mentally ill claim – are eternally different. It’s one of the wonderful things about life that while we are not the same, we are made to complement one another and make up where the other lacks. Trying to force us all to be the same is not only impossible and irrational, but at odds with nature and nature’s God.

I again draw a statement from Venker and Schlafly’s book The Flipside of Feminism. The speak about the deranged fight for impossible and undesirable “equality” and how blurring the lines between the genders creates confusion and undermines society:

When women usurp men’s role in society, as they do now, it messes up the order of things. Most men don’t want to compete with women; they want to take care of them. It makes men feel important and boosts their self-esteem. What’s more, statistics prove women want men to have the dominant role in the relationship. Recognizing this doesn’t give men carte blanche to treat women as subordinate – and most men don’t do this, or want to do this. That’s a feminist scare tactic to convince women otherwise.

tumblr_oyyceiWRbT1s9ibg1o1_1280

Today, if a person even alludes to the traditional male/female dance – especially if it’s a man – there is hell to pay. In 2006, Forbes editor Michael Noer wrote an article titled “Don’t Marry Career Women,” which sent feminists into a tizzy and prompted a rebuttal from Noer’s coworker, Elizabeth Corcoran. The point of Noer’s article was to highlight the social science research that proves career women, defined as those who work more than thirty-five hours a week, are “more likely to divorce, less likely to have children, and if they do have kids, are more likely to be unhappy about it.” Noer concedes that many employed mothers are happily married; he simply points out that studies show they’re less likely to be so than mothers who are not employed.

He also highlights a study that found both men and women are unhappy when wives make more money than their husbands. This is an inconvenient truth, to be sure; but that doesn’t make it any less true. It seems that despite women’s desire for independence, they still want to be taken care of – and money is part of that equation.

When women insist on competing with men at the same level, which is what happens when a society adopts the feminist view that men and women are the same, conflict ensues. It rears its ugly head on a logistical issues – as couples face the stress of both spouses having heavy workloads – and it rears its ugly head in the bedroom. It seems that highly educated couples who both spend their days at the office are more likely to cheat. “When your spouse works outside the home, chances increase that he or she will meet someone more likeable than you,” wrote Noer. This is not to suggest women shouldn’t be in the marketplace. But it is to say ramifications ensue when husbands and wives are both subjected to temptations on a consistent basis.

The marriages that stand the best chance of survival (and appear happiest) are those in which husbands and wives are not competing. Traditional marriages, in which wives depend on their husbands’ incomes and husbands defer to their wives on matters related to the home – including how to spend his income – are generally in harmony. Even in households in which women do work outside the home, smart wives don’t bring their professional selves home. They may wield some measure of power in the marketplace; but when they get home, these women take on a more traditional role.

The reversal of gender roles in modern America has been disastrous. It’s great that men spend more time with their kids than their own fathers did, and it’s great that modern advances have allowed women to be successful outside the home. But neither of these developments should eradicate the delicate balance between husbands and wives. They can each take part in the other’s primary role without supplanting it. That should be the goal.

Of all the ways to improve the relationship between the sexes, none is more important than accepting – and embracing – gender differences. Until we understand who men and women are as individuals and how they work in tandem, we will never be happy” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 89-91.

I concur that recognizing and embracing gender differences is one of the single most important things society can do to correct itself and stop its downward spiral. Men are men. Women are women. Why is this such a revolutionary and controversial thing to say? It’s common sense. It’s basic biology. And it’s scriptural.

tumblr_oh80n2R4Zz1vw9qr8o1_640

Society cannot survive when its families are in chaos. As goes the home, goes the society. And our homes cannot help but fracture and fall apart when women and men don’t embrace and fulfill their roles faithfully. Women, your place is in the home. Your Father in Heaven has appointed you to be a wife, homemaker, and mother. You are to support your husband, to submit to him guidance, to rear children, and to give selfless service. Men, your place is at the head of your family. You are the patriarch, provider, and defender of your home. You are to lead, guide, and discipline your wife and children. Children, your place is to honor and obey your parents.

Any other system of family order than the one outlined here is incorrect. “Alternative lifestyles” are not just different, they are wrong. True, life is not perfect and at times we have to amend our roles to fit our circumstances. For instance, at times a husband becomes injured and can’t work and the mother must leave the home to provide for the family. In this situation, this is her duty and she would be negligent not to fulfill it. Yet, the rule is that a woman should not work outside the home when there is no legitimate need – and especially not when children are at home in need of a mother’s touch.

Again I say that society cannot survive in the face of broken homes. Society is but a reflection of its homes. When we see crime, incivility, and immorality on the rise, we can be sure that the seeds of these bad habits were planted and cultivated in the home first. It is generally true that children who are raised correctly and with the Gospel of Jesus Christ as their sure foundation don’t depart from it. Those who are raised by absentee, permissive, or single parents, on the other hand, are exponentially more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, to commit crime, to rape, to murder, and to perpetuate the cycle of broken homes.

Feminism is code for selfishness. Everything feminists do and promote is selfish. Birth control – selfish. Abortion – selfish. Unnecessarily limiting the number of children in a family – selfish. Sleeping around/fornicating – selfish. Working outside the home when it is not a necessity and there are children to be nurtured – selfish. No-fault divorce – selfish. And so on and so forth.

Abortion is perhaps the epitome of feminist self-centeredness. Feminists are so selfish that they are willing to obliterate the life of a helpless, defenseless, innocent, precious baby to avoid being “inconvenienced.” How callous, cruel, and unfeeling can a person be? Abortion is pagan human sacrifice on the altar of selfishness and Marxist ideology. It is barbarism that is incompatible with a free and civil society, incompatible with the Constitution, and incompatible with the fixed laws of Eternity.

When the hedonistic, me-centered “sexual revolution” occurred, it drastically altered the centuries-old dynamic in the home and in society. The primary consequence of the “sexual revolution” was that women and men both no longer felt the need to marry in order to engage in sexual relations. Women, in particular, no long saw marriage as a prerequisite. Venker and Schlafly have observed:

When, we might ask, did getting married and staying married become so difficult? Not surprisingly, at the same time casual sex became fashionable – the 1960s. That’s when feminists began emphasizing the individual over the family good. This shift in focus means American women no longer plan for marriage carefully, methodically, and with foresight. Rather, they are encouraged to focus solely on their identities and their careers. The notion that a woman should follow her own dreams, that she should be true to herself and not be held back by husband and children, has become a fait accompli. Women may want to settle down eventually, but marriage (and motherhood) is something that just sort of happens, as if it were a nice accompaniment to an otherwise fulfilling life. To the modern woman, work is the meat of her life. A husband is the salad.

This is a profound transformation. Married couples no longer think of themselves as one unit but as separate entities sharing space, which leads to an obscuring of gender roles and inevitable conflict as each spouse focuses solely on his or her own needs rather than the needs of the marriage. “The confusion over roles is there, as are the legacies of a self-absorbed, me-first, feminist-do-or-die, male-backlash society,” wrote Judith Wallerstein and Sandra Blakeslee in The Good Marriage: How and Why Love Lasts.

Men’s reaction to this phenomenon is twofold. They either give in to the new regime feminists have created, or they give up. Those who give in generally do so because they’ve either bought into the lie that women are just like men or because it’s easier to get along with the women in their lives than to fight them.

The men who give up tend to remain silent, for if they speak out against feminism, they’ll be labeled chauvinists. Many men would like to get married, but they know modern marriages are precarious. There’s also no incentive for them to do so since they can have sex whenever they want and even live with their girlfriends with little interference from society. This was the theme of the movie He’s Just Not That Into You. Two of the main characters, Neil and Berth, have been living together for seven years, but she dumps him when she realizes he isn’t going to marry her. Rather than accept her share of the blame (by choosing to cohabitate in the first place), Beth suggests Neil is the bad guy for not wanting to get married.

image21

He’s Just Not That Into You is a splendid example of how feminism failed women. The sexual revolution was billed as something that would put women on par with men, but instead it has ruptured the male/female relationship. At first, women hesitate to get married because they think they’ll lose their identities if they do; then when they are ready to get married (because their biological clocks are ticking), the men in their lives don’t want to marry them.

That is hardly progress on the road to happiness” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 75-77.

A major part of this massive cultural shift we’re discussing was coaxing women out of the safety and comfort of their homes into the fast-paced workplace. Instead of enjoying fulfilling lives raising the next generation of leaders, businessmen, scientists, teachers, and so forth, women now waste their lives away in stale office jobs that can never offer them fulfillment or authentic happiness. I appeal yet again to Venker and Schlafly who wrote:

One of the ways 1970s feminists lured women out of the home was to demand that they focus their education on subjects that would advance their careers, rather than focus on subjects related to homemaking or teaching. Elite feminists push all women to plan their lives around careers. The result is that young women give little thought to marriage and motherhood and instead spend upwards of a decade becoming highly qualified for the workplace. Women believe this is the better life plan, since their mothers’ lives, they are told, were empty and meaningless. Women in previous decades may have had jobs, but they didn’t have careers. Like tempting children with candy, feminists assured women that there was a better life to be had. “Whether girls heard the call of independence from their family or the outside culture, they listened,” wrote Dr. Jean Twenge in Generation Me” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 51-52).

The siren song of “equality” and “independence” has gained women extra burdens and greater misery while depriving them of the love and respect of men and true happiness. Real men don’t care what a woman’s profession is. We honestly don’t. And, furthermore, a woman who intends to continue working when married, for no reason other than that she is an “independent woman who don’t need no man,” is a major turn off. Rather, men want to know whether or not a woman will be committed to her husband, home, and family; whether she will be a submissive, virtuous, and gentle wife; and whether she’s mature enough to know that motherhood is her ultimate calling.

The great spiritual leader David O. McKay once gave us a principle that applies to both men and women, but which especially applies to women who, by divine design, are supposed to be in the home more frequently:

The home is the first and most effective place for children to learn the lessons of life: truth, honor, virtue, self-control; the value of education, honest work, and the purpose and privilege of life. Nothing can take the place of home in rearing and teaching children, and no other success can compensate for failure in the home” (President David O. McKay, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Family Home Evening Manual, preface, iii).

Your highest calling, ladies, will be in your own home as a mother and a wife. You’re chasing a pipe dream if you expect to find happiness and fulfillment outside of the home. Though you should always expand your mind in the areas of history, politics, science, etc., you should base your education – both in and out of school – on developing the skills that will help you be a more successful spouse, wife, homemaker, and mother. You need to learn that the home is where you were designed to shine. It is the place where you can do the most good for others and where you can find the greatest measure of fulfillment. Women, society needs you to come home. We cannot survive another generation of motherless homes.

I share one final statement from Venker and Schlafly. They testified:

The truth is that feminism has been the single worst thing that has happened to American women. It did not liberate women at all – it confused them. It made their lives harder. Women today are caught between man and nature . . . Their female nature tells them sex requires love; marriage is important; children are a blessing; and men are necessary. The culture, meanwhile, tells them to sleep around and postpone family life because that will cost them their identity. And, if their marriage doesn’t work out, it’s no big deal. They can always get divorced.

Is it any wonder modern women are unhappy?” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism, 55).

When you look at modern women, it is obviously they are not happy. They are bitter and caustic. They have a massive victim complex. And they lash out in disgusting ways unbecoming the “fairer sex.” And is it any wonder they’re so unhappy and riotous? They’ve denied their own nature, rejected the beautiful role God gave them, and have attempted to live like inferior men. As my Dad always said, feminists take the worst qualities of men, seek to imitate them (and fail), and call it “equality.”

I feel to address one additional aspect of the feminist nightmare through which society is passing. The “Women’s Liberation” movement is part and parcel of a much larger, world-wide scheme for the overthrow and subjugation of humanity. Yes, I’m referring to the c-word – conspiracy.

cultural-marxism-destruction

The Illuminati, whether people want to admit it or not, exited. That’s historically irrefutable. It is also irrefutable that they did not die out, as the court historians claim. Indeed, as I document in my books, you can trace the Illuminati to the birth of a particular ideology – communism. An Illuminati offshoot group, the League of the Just, hired Karl Marx to write The Communist Manifesto and changed its name to the Communist League. 70 years later, this same organization, under a new name, led the coup which conquered Russia and created the Soviet Union. Thus, communism is Illuminism. And it is a Satanic scheme that is very much alive and active in our world under a cornucopia of names and labels.

A major component of the Illuminati/communist vision was to “abolish the family.” Adam Weishaupt, the Illuminati’s occultist founder, explained their plot this way:

There is no way of influencing men so powerfully as by means of the women. These should therefore be our chief study; we should insinuate ourselves into their good opinion, give them hints of emancipation from the tyranny of public opinion, and of standing up for themselves; it will be an immense relief to their enslaved minds to be freed from any one bond of restraint, and it will fire them the more, and cause them to work for us with zeal, without knowing that they do so; for they will only be indulging their own desire of personal admiration” (John Robison, Proofs of a Conspiracy, 111).

Did you catch that? The Illuminati understood that men are the defenders of society. If you invade a nation, it is the men who mobilize and fight to repel you. And they fight for the purpose of protecting their women and children. These same women and children, therefore, are their weakness – their Achilles’ heel. If you can successfully manipulate the women, you can also manipulate the men and influence the rising generation. The chief way the Illuminati-communists have manipulated women in modern times is by employing the fancy slogan of “emancipation” (i.e. “liberation” from the patriarchy, “equality” with men, and “independence”).

Thus, “Women’s Liberation,” from the very beginning, had an ulterior motive – the destruction of the family unit. Later Illuminati agents, calling themselves Marxists, communists, and socialists, openly championed the Suffragette, Women’s Liberation, feminist, and LGBT movements. They are the LGBT movement’s chief sponsors and spokesmen today.

pjimage-81

Feminism is nothing but a communist front movement. Communists such as the Bolshevik Inessa Armand have boasted of this fact. She said:

If women’s liberation is unthinkable without communism, then communism is unthinkable without women’s liberation.”

Yes, all feminists are default communists. They are perhaps the deadliest Marxists in the world because they target the most sensitive and important of all institutions – the home. Little do feminist women know that they are being manipulated by a small group of evil men who are using them to destroy good men and topple society. Communists are the hammer, women are the anvil, and the family unit is being hammered to pieces in between the two.

When we compare women then and women now, feminism’s destructive influence is readily apparent. We can judge a tree by its fruit. Infanticide, broken homes, failed marriages, raging selfishness, rampant hedonism, widespread victim complexes, dysfunctional children, bitter men, and unhappy women are the rotten fruits. We would be exceedingly foolish to conclude that feminism is anything but a perversion and aberration that needs to be dumped onto the ash heap of history and forgotten.

Our forefathers honored and loved their women. The “patriarchy,” so-called, understood the divine roles of men and women; that we are equal in God’s eyes, but different in our functionality. They set up society to protect women and make their careers as wives, homemakers, and mothers as easy as possible. And they cherished those good women who embraced their godly calling and fulfilled it with humility.

What feminists call “oppression” that is, patriarchal families, wifely submission, sound families, strong marriages, and happy homes – is true Freedom. And what they call “liberation” – phantom “equality,” lonely lives, 9-5 desk jobs, a lower level of competence and respect, and less admiration and devotion from men who don’t benefit at all from women’s selfishness – is hellish enslavement. If we truly want to celebrate and honor women this International Women’s Day, we will ditch the Marxist talking points, admit that feminism has corrupted women, torn apart families, and undermined society, and begin to encourage women to return to their homes where they can serve as queens, with all the honor that her lofty station deserves.

Ladies, the home is where you were designed to shine! The home is where society needs you to be. It is where God has called you to utilize your talents for the greatest good of yourselves and society. Woman, please come home before it’s too late.

Stalin – Man of Steel

The Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin is unarguably one of the most influential figures in modern times. Stalin directly presided over the second largest slaughter of human beings in recorded history and had a hand in the greatest episode of mass murder known to man. Literally billions of human beings languished under his iron grip or had their lives directly impacted by his orders. His influence is still felt at the present time. This article covers Stalin’s dark legacy and why the world cannot afford to forget him.

Stalin9

I take Stalin as my topic for this article because it was on March 5, 1953 that the Soviet state announced the death of the dictator. While the conventional wisdom is that the seventy-four-year-old tyrant died from complications resulting from a stroke, the official narrative is suspicious at best. I will not discuss it at length here, but suffice it to say that my personal opinion is that Stalin was murdered – most likely by Lavrenti Beria, the savage head of the KGB, or perhaps by Nikita Khrushchev who would eventually succeed Stalin as dictator of the Soviet Empire. At any rate, Stalin suffered for several days before, as a Smithsonian Magazine article put it, he “vomited blood and his stomach started hemorrhaging” and he died a fittingly bloody death.

Throughout his life, Stalin had dozens of aliases. Most communist outlaws had multiple aliases either because they were attempting to conceal their Jewish ethnicity or, as in Stalin’s case, because they were criminals engaged in a highly illegal and seditious lifestyle. “Stalin” is an alias meaning “man of steel” in Russian. He was also known to his intimates as Koba and often secretly signed orders that he wished not to be directly connected to himself with this name. Stalin was Georgian and his real name was Iosif Dzhugashvili.

One of the major influences on Stalin’s life was the Devilish dogma of Darwinism. In his early years, Stalin studied in a Christian school with the goal of becoming a priest. He sang in the choir and apparently had an excellent voice. However, in his teens, Stalin came across a banned book: On the Origin of the Species by Charles Darwin. From the time he read Darwin’s scientifically fraudulent and long since debunked theories, Stalin disavowed Christianity and hardened his heart toward truth and goodness.

Early on, Stalin began robbing banks. He developed something of a gang of followers. He began reading Karl Marx’s writings and became a devotee of Marxism. He then learned of Lenin and aligned himself with Lenin’s philosophy of state plunder and violent revolution. Stalin became one of Lenin’s financiers. His money came from “expropriations,” as they euphemistically called them, which included the loot from bank robbery, piracy, and other fraudulent schemes. Because of his criminality, Stalin was in and out of local prisons and spent time in exile in Siberia.

In 1917, Stalin assisted his fellow Bolshevik conspirators overthrow the provisional Russian government on the eve of a national congress to decide upon a future government. He remained in the shadows at the beginning as Lenin, Trotsky, and others stood at the forefront. However, Stalin worked quietly behind the scenes and came to hold the “General Secretary” position within the Communist Party. This position allowed him to stock the Soviet state apparatus with yes-men loyal to him as well as to monitor all communications coming into headquarters. By the time Lenin’s health had declined and he was relegated, by Stalin, to bed rest, Stalin had begun consolidating power and edging out rivals. Over time, and through mass arrests, murder, and devious cunning, Stalin consolidated all power in his own blood-soaked hands.

Few men in world history have ever had a cult-like following like Stalin did. Stalin exemplifies the concept of a “cult of personality.” Stalin was the Soviet state.

A passage from the explosive book Men Without Faces, written by the highly articulate ex-communist Louis Francis Budenz, captures the essence of the world-wide cult of Stalin worship that existed during his day:

Stalin worship is a reality. The average American, who goes to bed at night totally unaware of the future it lays down for him, should be made to understand that fact. Stalin worship is the mighty dynamic force which is killing off Chinese peasants, murdering men of religion, making great sections of the world huge concentration camps. His is the magic name that is beating down the United States – “the focal point and mainstay of world reaction” – as the Cominform’s organ boasted at the beginning of 1949.

America must realize that this “supreme master of bold revolutionary decisions” is the man whom the Soviet fifth column’s members, operating from Thirteenth Street [in New York City], plan to make ruler of a Soviet America. They assert that the cry, “For Stalin!” is the watchword of liberation. . . .

Every Red inner-party meeting, large or small, introduces in some vivid way the theme of devotion to Stalin. Every theoretical article written for Communist direction is scanned carefully in advance to determine whether it contains allusions to Stalin or to his teachings in proper measure. . . .

Without understanding the cult of Stalin worship – and that is what it has come to be – it is impossible to understand the Communist conspiracy. It is impossible to understand the life of the party member, especially the member who has been thoroughly trained, unless one appreciates what the constant repetition of Stalin’s name, attributes, and works has done to him. America must realize that these hosannas to Stalin are not fantastic ravings, but part of a cold, deliberate program designed to undermine any remnants of patriotism among Communists in capitalist countries and to obliterate democratic sentiments everywhere. If the average resident of Middletown, U.S.A., is inclined to shrug off such statements as bombastic, he would have a different view if he knew what rigid discipline can accomplish.

From the Baltic countries to China, Stalin worship records its victories in the conquests by the armed bands under Stalin’s banner. In the United States, it has also achieved its successes” (Louis Francis Budenz, Men Without Faces: The Communist Conspiracy in the U.S.A., 157-158).

At the zenith of his power, Stalin’s Soviet Empire spanned the globe, its slimy tentacles reaching into all nations. America was considered by the Soviets, and is still considered by the Russians today, as the “main enemy.” Everything was aimed at subverting and eventually subjugating the United States. We were the last major prize that needed to be collected by the ruling international Elite.

communism616

Because he was a career criminal, Stalin operated the Soviet state like a mob boss. His intelligence services operated like the most ruthless of mafias. Indeed, after the fake “collapse” of the USSR (political theater designed to trick the West into disarming in the face of “no” international threat), Soviet intelligence merged with the Russian mafia. The Russian mafia has a particularly strong grip on the state of Israel.

Yes, Stalin had a tremendous influence over his fellow communists and helped regiment them into a disciplined conspiracy apparatus prepared to sacrifice everything for the communist cause. And yet, Stalin was only one part – albeit an essential part – of a much larger machinery of deception and destruction.

In a short book written by a former Soviet commissar, we find this bit of crucial insight into the power behind Stalin and its aims. Stalin shared the ultimate aim of the conspiracy – power:

Today Stalin is the ruler of 189 different nationalities, a total of more than 170 million people, living within the boundaries of the Soviet Union. His rise to power; his capability to maintain his prestige; his genuinely Asiatic way of doing away with his enemies; and, last but not least, the fact that he, being neither Jew nor Russian, is able to surround himself with a staff of preponderantly Jewish collaborators who blindly obey his orders, is a riddle to a politically confused world.

But the wondering peoples of the world can blame no one but themselves for not understanding how a man like Stalin can rise to power; how he can go on exterminating his innocent chattels by the millions and even his collaborators by the thousands. By refusing to accept the truth that Stalin’s regime rests completely upon the power of International Jewry, the world deliberately discards the only logical and true explanation for the phenomenal career of this human monster who now resides behind the walls of the Kremlin.

The fact that Stalin has, and still is killing many a Jew in no way minimizes the role which International Jewry plays in Soviet Russia. The latter will never discriminate between Jew and Gentile, when it comes to furthering its plans.

A Jew disobedient to the mandates of the occult center, or one who dares to become arrogant, is as scrupulously done away with as a Gentile. International Jewry will tolerate antagonism within the ranks of its subordinates only as long as this discord does not interfere with the revolutionary strategy in general. . . .

To anyone who, like I, has escaped from Soviet Russia and has seen Bolshevism in its stark nudity, it is hard to understand how people in other countries, and especially the so-called intellectuals, can see any signs of “progress” in Russia. We fail to grasp how presidents and cabinets of foreign governments can officially recognize Stalin and his band of subordinates, most of whom are ex-criminals; yes, not only recognize them as equals at banquets or state functions, but even entrust to them the most important institution the international powers ever have organized – the League of Nations.

. . . an occult group of Internationalists are feverishly working toward the enslavement of the entire world, including the United States of America.

To achieve this end these human devils have not hesitated to enthrone a most brutal and cruel Asiatic half-breed in Soviet Russia. By so doing they have laid their hands firmly on one of the world’s richest countries, the enormous man power of which they hope to use in subduing the rest of the earth” (A Former Russian Commissar, Stalin, the Terrible, 9-10).

“Satan taking off his mask!”

I’ve gone to great lengths to persuade people that the communist conspiracy is not a Jewish conspiracy. However, I have also written much about the fact that Jews are disproportionately involved in the conspiracy. They are the primary movers and shakers within the movement. Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, and other key figures in Illuminism (such as its founder Adam Weishaupt), which later assumed the name communism, were Jews. Stalin’s reign, however, demonstrates that one need not be a Jew to belong to or wield influence in the conspiracy (as an interesting side note, Stalin’s third wife was a Jewess).

The key membership requirement is to share the conspiracy’s ideology and to submit to its secret laws, which laws have been taught to man by Satan whenever he can gain control over the hearts of willing individuals. Those at the highest levels of the cabal are knowing occultists who bow the knee before their Dark Master. Their philosophy is undeniably communist. Communism is Satanism.

The communist cabal set up Russia as an Illuminati base of operations. Again, I have attempted to hammer this point home in my writings. In my first book on communism, A Century of Red, I explained:

World War I created the conditions in which communism could come to power in Russia. It was brought about by the machinations of these secret societies – particularly those in Britain and France. Under the cover of this contrived war, the Bolsheviks, aided by their Masonic brothers in the West, used every evil method to beat down the peoples throughout the [Russian] Empire, and succeeded in creating a springboard from which to launch the final assault against humanity. It must always be remembered that communism was not created in a vacuum. Rather, it was one arm of the occult conspiracy’s overall agenda.

To summarize the significance of communism’s achievements to the conspiracy, I quote the words of researcher Des Griffin who observed:

““It took the communists twenty one years of unrelenting terror to completely subjugate the Russian people, to break their will and to bring them to a state of near mindless conformity. Students of history recognize that what happened in Russia was the fulfillment of the first stage of the Illuminati’s master plan for the total domination of the world.”

From their occupied base in Russia, the international conspirators have spread the Red Plague into every nation on earth, infecting the people, cultural institutions, and governments, and preparing mankind for servitude in their Luciferian world order.”

communism21

This is the awful reality and secret behind communism. In order to properly understand the communist conspiracy, one must realize that communism is Illuminism and Illuminism was created by Satan. Thus, communism is Satanism. It is the wickedest and most threatening of all evil movements on earth today.

As the commissar-author wrote above, communism is sponsored and aided by International Jewry. Winston Churchill, an ardent Zionist himself, admitted as much when he wrote in a 1920 editorial that International Jews were “the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century.” He also noted:

[A]nd now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

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 . . . 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” (Winston Churchill, “Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People,” Illustrated Sunday Herald, February 8, 1920, 5).

By the 1930s, and under Stalin, a full one-third of Jews in the Soviet Empire worked for the Soviet state. Most commissars were Jews. The brutal GULAG system of prison and work camps were overseen almost exclusively by Jews. Purges of the Christian populations of Russia and Ukraine, and the Muslim populations of Central Asia, were carried out by Stalin’s Jewish henchmen. There is simply no honest and informed individual who can deny the massive role Jews played and continue to play in the communist conspiracy. As Churchill said, the Jewish influence in fanatical communistic globalism “probably outweighs all others.”

Stalin23

The Jew Lazar Kaganovich, Stalin’s brother-in-law, one of his closest henchmen, and one of the most powerful men in Moscow who has been called “the Wolf of the Kremlin,” lauded Stalin in these words:

His most noteworthy and characteristic feature is just this, that during the whole course of his party political activity, he never left Lenin, never vacillated either to the Right or to the “Left,” and firmly and unwaveringly carried out a consistent Bolshevik policy, beginning with extremely illegal work and finishing with the entire period since the workers conquered power.

Comrade Stalin with extreme clearness made incarnate in himself all the chief features of the Bolshevik Party, and as a leader remains faithful to the old Bolshevik traditions, to Bolshevik theory, practice and organisation” (Lazar Kaganovich, “Stalin and the Party,” in The Life of Stalin: A Symposium, 38).

Stalin was chided by many fellow communists for allegedly “departing” from Leninist principles and putting his own cult of personality first. I dispute this notion. The goal of communism is power. Communists seek to dominate the world and to micromanage the lives of humans everywhere. Stalin excelled in doing just this. He routinely appealed to Lenin and quoted him to justify his actions. Lenin, we must recall, was a mass murderer who forcibly overthrew the Russian government, orchestrated famines to soften up the rebellious Russian people, demolished churches, spewed vile hated upon anyone who opposed him, and attended occult rituals on at least a couple of occasions. Stalin was merely a more successful version of Lenin.

Stalin’s cunning was on full display leading up to, and during, the Second World War. The esteemed Ezra Taft Benson once said that “World War II . . . was largely brought on through the world-wide diplomatic conniving of Stalin’s agents” (Ezra Taft Benson, BYU Address, December 13, 1963, in Jerreld L. Newquist, ed., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, 265). Hitler did not start World War II. Germany was thrust into that war just as they had been forced into the First World War. Rather, Stalin and his fellow conspirators in Britain and America started the war.

FDR, a rabid communist in his own right, was the most disastrous president in our nation’s history. It was FDR’s administration that recognized the Soviet state, led by Stalin, as a legitimate nation. Prior to 1933, the Soviet Union was rightly considered a rogue terrorist state run by gangsters and inhuman monsters. FDR changed that. He opened the United States to full-on communist subversion. Stalin’s agents flooded into Washington. FDR’s two closest advisors, Harry Hopkins and Alger Hiss, were later discovered to be Soviet moles (Alger Hiss went on to become the first Secretary-General of the United Nations).

Stalin26

FDR was part of the international cabal to which Stalin also belonged. Accordingly, FDR was so desperate to get the United States into WWII in 1941 in order to save “Uncle Joe” Stalin from the German advance. It was U.S. Lend-Lease that saved the Soviets in 1941. I’ve personally talked to Red Army veterans in Russia who believed that without our aid, they would have lost the war.

As the war progressed and regrettably turned in the Allies’ favor, Stalin and FDR worked together to divide the world. Stalin secured a guarantee from FDR that China would fall to the Soviets, which it did. He got a guarantee that the Soviets would consume Eastern Europe, which they did. And so forth.

When you examine the world after the Second World War, you come to a realization that the only party which really benefited from that conflagration was international communism, in which I include International Jewry. Certainly the United States, while supposedly emerging as the world’s superpower, had compromised itself by rescuing and rearming its mortal enemy and had forfeited its moral high ground by engaging in fiendish butchery in Germany and Japan. Strategically, the Soviets, let by Stalin, emerged from the war with an upper hand.

Stalin was, arguably, the global conspiracy’s greatest all-time tool. By this, I don’t mean to suggest that he was controlled, because I don’t believe he was controlled by anyone except Satan. However, he helped further the conspiracy’s goal of world conquest in a manner that perhaps no other individual has. During his thirty-year reign, Bolshevism spread itself over most of the globe, openly subjugating half the world’s population and planting and carefully cultivating the seeds of subversion throughout in the United States. We are seeing the fruit of those seeds ripening now before our eyes.

The man of steel created much of international communism in his own image. And for his own part, Stalin claimed that he was merely following the doctrine established by Lenin. And Lenin followed Marx. And Marx was hired by the League of the Just, an Illuminati splinter group. And the Illuminati, in 1782, fused together with radical Jews and certain elements of Freemasonry to form the amalgam of evil that menaces the globe today.

Without Stalin’s indomitable leadership which kept the Soviet Union intact as the world’s #1 threat through a world war and the first years of the Cold War, the communist conspiracy wouldn’t have the fraction of the power it has today. Because Stalin demanded such rigid obedience to his dictates from his followers throughout the world, the cabal produced a cadre of revolutionaries that today is either still influential or which trained those who are taking over the various revolutionary movements we see rising.

communism442

Some of Stalin’s “successes” include slaughtering between 40 and 60 million human beings in the Soviet Union, conquering China (in which another 60-100 million were murdered), radicalizing the black community in America, kick-starting of the LGBT movement in the United States, launching of WWII, enslaving Eastern Europe and defeating an anti-communist Germany, and flooding Washington, D.C. and the American intelligence services with Soviet moles. Communizing China was certainly his greatest accomplishment. China is today called Red China and a grave threat precisely because Stalin, with the help of his co-conspirators in Washington, D.C. and the animal savagery of Mao Tse-tung, foisted Marxism upon that hapless country. But it would have scarcely been possible without Stalin’s larger-than-life influence.

On this anniversary of Joseph Stalin’s death, we ought to remember what he did to the world and what the movement that he led is still doing to it. We ought to recall that Stalin was started down the path of darkness by faith-destroying Darwinist theories. We should remember and memorialize the billions of victims of this evil man and his followers and the indescribable suffering they endured for no reason other than that a clique of gangsters decided they should rule over the rest of us. We should keep in mind that Stalin was part of a larger conspiracy, dominated by Satanic Kabbalistic Jews, whose aim is world domination and the establishment of a one-world state as a prelude to a one-world occult religion.

In Russia, some dislike Stalin while others love him. There in fact has been something of a resurgence in Stalin worship in recent years. Though a proposal to erect a mammoth statue of Stalin in Moscow fell through, smaller memorials are being erected. A 2019 article in The Atlantic bearing the title “Is Stalin Making a Comeback in Russia?” contains this passage:

To find Joseph Stalin here in Russia’s third-largest city, drive down the main thoroughfare, Red Аvenue, past Lenin Square. At the Ob River, turn left on Bolshevik Street until you reach a two-story wooden building with traditionally carved window trimmings. . . .

The unveiling of the bust this month in Novosibirsk, which served as a transit point for millions of people sent to gulags or forcibly deported in the Stalin era, has broader echoes across Russia, where supposed grassroots movements to glorify Stalin almost always have the support of authorities. It is part of an effort by the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin to justify his “own authoritarian ruling style,” says Alexander Rudnitsky, the head of the local branch of Memorial, a human-rights organization.

The tactic seems to be working: The statue’s unveiling came not long after a survey by the Levada Center, a reputable polling organization, reported that 70 percent of Russians had a positive appraisal of Stalin’s role in history.”

Stalin, the Man of Steel, is perhaps the cruelest and vilest man to ever live. Yet, the demonic spirit of the movement he led for three decades is stronger than ever and permeates not only Russian society, but Western culture, the entertainment industry, the media, government, economics, and our most precious institutions. If we are to combat this darkness, we must stoke the fires of truth and right. Only light defeats darkness. Light, or truth, can smash to pieces the lies of the Adversary of all mankind. These high priests of evil fear the truth. They fear exposure. They fear what would happen to them if the American People ever woke up and realized that communism is the greatest Satanical threat to their Faith, Families, and Freedom.

communism642

God help us to wake up before it is everlastingly too late! May the Lord bless those of us who are trying so hard to shake our neighbors out of their communist-induced slumber. And may we each stay the course so that it will never be said of Stalin what it is said of Lenin: “Lenin lived, Lenin lives, Lenin will live.” May Stalin’s shockingly malevolent influence die with us so that our children and grandchildren may live in a world free of men like murderous Man of Steel.

The Bible of Communism

On February 21, 1848, The Communist Manifesto was published by the Communist League in London. That evil document – an unabashed scheme for world domination – is now 172 years old and not only continues to shape our world, but expresses the principles of those who are dragging humanity into the depths of chaos, agony, and destruction. This article is written for those who have never read the Manifesto, do not understand why it is applicable today, or who wish to gain insight into its true origins at the hands of a powerful secret society.

communism453

In his booklet To Communism . . . Via Majority Vote, Ben Moreell wrote of the Manifesto as the “bible” of communism. He said:

If a person intends to fight something, he should know his enemy in order to plan his strategy. Otherwise, he may do more harm than good . . . “THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO”, published in 1848, is the “bible” of the communist faith.”

Mr. Moreell noted how “disturbed” he was when he first read The Communist Manifesto. He repeated its stated plan for the conquest of the world, which we will highlight later, and then remarked:

If this century-old strategy of Marx – what today we call “creeping socialism” – sounds familiar to you in the light of current events in America, you will understand why I am disturbed. You see, I had believed that communism would come by violence. Now I discovered that the goal was to be achieved not by bullets, but by ballots; not by illegal, but by legal means; not by a few evil persons, but by vote of the majority.

This throws a new light on the problem. It appears that in our struggle against communism, we Americans may well be choosing the wrong battlefield, at the wrong time, and against the wrong enemy. It may be that while we are fighting communist armies thousands of miles away, communism itself is marching steadily forward under the stimulus of easy triumphs here at home” (Ben Moreell, To Communism . . . Via Majority Vote, 2, 6).

It is a verifiable certainty that the communist virus has infected America, just as it has infected every nation on earth. The United States has adopted, to greater or lesser degree, each of the Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto. Though the communist revolution is being waged globally, the most important battlefields we can fight on are in our own nation, communities, and homes. While communism should be opposed with power, it is much more important to oppose it with principles. At its core, this is a spiritual fight – a war between two irrevocably opposite worldviews.

communism735

In the wake of 9/11 false flag attacks, a modern Marxist group calling itself the Communist League came into being. In 2003, they wrote an outlandish pamphlet titled What is Communism? In it, they gave us an interesting detail about the coming forth of The Communist Manifesto:

When Marx and Engels began the process of transforming the utopian League of the Just into the Communist League, the document they used for this work had the awful working title of Draft of a Communist Confession of Faith. This document would itself go through a thorough revision and be circulated under the title, Principles of Communism, and would serve as the basis for the Communist Manifesto.”

Marx obviously considered his Manifesto a “communist confession of faith.” It was a declaration of belief and principle. Communism, to Marx, was akin to a religion. Indeed, it is Satanism personified – a wholesale rebellion against God and natural law. Mr. Moreell was correct, then, to call the Manifesto the “bible” of communism. The Communist Manifesto gives us a glimpse into the dark heart of this evil movement.

The Ten Planks of the Manifesto is its most famous feature. Mr. Moreell called them “the battle plan of communism” (Moreell, 4). We will begin our analysis of the stated communist plan there. Marx prefaced his ten points by stating that “the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy.” Communists always promote “democracy” and “democratic” movements. For instance, in the March 1918 edition of the New York-based Marxist magazine The Liberator, we find this line on page three:

With the Russian people in the lead, the world is entering upon the experiment of industrial and real democracy.”

To communists, Soviet-style Bolshevism is “real democracy.” Marxists always seek to first establish democracy – that is, majoritarian mob rule – in a country they seek to conquer because it is easy to inflame passions, cause divisions, pit factions against one another, and then come to power while eliminating enemies under cover of the chaos. Communists love to use this “divide and conquer” technique. And it undoubtedly works best in a democratic society.

communism471

Marx further wrote that after democracy is established:

The proletariat will use its political supremacy to wrest, by degree, all capital from the bourgeoisie, to centralise all instruments of production in the hands of the State. . . .

Of course, in the beginning, this cannot be effected except by means of despotic inroads on the rights of property, and on the conditions of bourgeois production; by means of measures, therefore, which appear economically insufficient and untenable, but which, in the course of the movement, outstrip themselves, necessitate further inroads upon the old social order, and are unavoidable as a means of entirely revolutionising the mode of production.

These measures will, of course, be different in different countries.

Nevertheless, in most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable.”

Before we list the Ten Planks that will “be pretty generally applicable” in every industrialized nation, another quick note. The communists intend the democratic mob to be mobilized to vote away their own rights and centralize all political power “in the hands of the State.” Despite the communists’ rhetoric about the people holding power, Marx is clear that it is the state that will wield all power.

I err when I say communists refer to “the people” as holding power. They actually allege that only “the workers” have a claim on power (and the workers are of course represented by the dictatorial state), and that the propertied class is an inherent enemy that needs to be divested of their power, property, and wealth. Page six of the same issue of The Liberator just quoted contains this brazen paragraph:

It is never “the people” who will accomplish this [turn to communism] – Lenine [sic] has been warned against the concept of “the people” in his Bible of Karl Marx from the beginning. It is the working-class who will accomplish it, and they will accomplish it, if they can, by establishing a dictatorship, overt and uncompromising. The truth is that only after a general transfer of land and factories to the workers is accomplished, so that substantially all the people have become workers, and the super-political influence of a capitalist class is removed, can an appeal to the people really be an appeal to the people. Only then does formal justice and democracy of a popular vote become materially just and democratic. And this delving under the forms of law and politics to the economic materials of right and liberty, is the essence of socialist thinking. If the American moralistic democrat cannot grasp this, he will do well to suspend his judgment and watch it – for it will continue to the end with little bother whether he cries “Dictator! Anarchy! Traitor to the people!” or not.”

Note the threatening arrogance. The communists plan to set up a “dictatorship” over America whether we like it or not. They’ll do so under the guise of establishing “democracy” and “justice” – particularly for the “workers” and less fortunate. But in reality, there will be no justice or representation for the American People under a Marxist system. Our property will be confiscated or abolished and we’ll all be forced into the thralldom of a high-tech feudal system.

Marx fully acknowledged that this transfer of power from the people to the state will require the people’s agents in government to make “despotic inroads on the rights of property.” Inasmuch as there is no Liberty without the right to own and manage property, Marx was subtly calling for the ruthless destruction of the Liberty of those he claimed to want to liberate. And he wanted to accomplish this centralization of power in the hands of the state by means of class warfare.

The communists have always attempted to get the majority so aggravated and angry about their alleged “oppression” and “victimization” at the hands of the “bourgeoisie” that the people will throw their support behind radical socialistic laws designed to transfer wealth and power to the state. Today we heard Democrats, Progressives, and socialists condemning the “1%” and saying things like “tax the rich” and “make the rich pay their fair share.” These sentiments are straight out of The Communist Manifesto. If we follow this course through to its conclusion, we will reap the entire “revolutionizing” of our society and an all-powerful state dominating every aspect of our lives.

communism20

In order to centralize all things “in the hands of the state” and turn a society communist, Marx proposed the following:

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, &c, &c.”

communism827

This, dear reader, is how socialists and communists everywhere attempt to steal power away from the people and lodge it in the hands of the state – the state controlled, of course, by them. You perhaps noticed that several of the Ten Planks are already in place in the United States. If so, I commend you. However, if you are really perceptive, you noted that all ten of Marx’s suggestions have been enacted in our nation.

Yes, all Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto have been enacted, to one extent or another, in the United States of America! As Ezra Taft Benson once stated, “the Fabian Socialists are as busy as bees rolling out the red carpet which leads inevitably to Communism” (Ezra Taft Benson, “A Race Against Time,” BYU address, December 10, 1963). Though socialists are the ones enacting Marxist principles and policies while the communists cheer-lead from the sidelines, the destination is communist “utopia.”

Let’s give a quick rundown on each of the ten points listed and how they’ve been implemented in our Republic.

1. Abolition of property.

Naturally, all property hasn’t been abolished . . . yet. However, your property (eg. your home, land, car, salary) is heavily taxed, regulated, and micromanaged by local, state, and federal governments. The federal government has also taken control over massive swaths of land all over the country – particularly in the West. 79.6% of Nevada’s land, 63.1% of Utah’s land, and 61.6% of Idaho’s land, to name only three, is owned and controlled by the federal government. Millions of acres of land and resources are tied up in national parks and UNESCO world heritage sites. The government steals land for “public purposes” under eminent domain rules never envisioned by the Founding Fathers and inaugurated by the odious 14th Amendment. And, finally, in some situations the federal government has outright confiscated Americans’ property. For instance, federal agencies, such as the BLM, have confiscated millions of acres of private land from ranchers and farmers while FDR’s administration notoriously confiscated America’s gold in 1933.

2. A progressive income tax.

In some translations, Marx called for a “graduated” income tax – that is, an unequal tax determined by one’s level of income. It is class antagonism at its finest. The 16th Amendment, rammed down our nation’s throat in 1913, destroys the Constitution’s requirement that all taxes be apportioned equally. Unequal taxes are little more than wealth redistribution. Taxing the “rich” more so that they’ll pay their “fair” share is actually the opposite of fairness and equity. Equal taxation is fair; graduated taxation is a Marxist wealth redistribution scheme.

3. Abolition of inheritance rights.

This Marxist assault on private wealth and personal property takes the form of estate, inheritance, and death taxes. In the United States, you are no longer free to hand down your estate and inheritance to your children, or whomever, without the government getting involved and taxing that wealth. What modern Marxists do is tax (i.e. steal) the property of deceased individuals – property that has already been taxed. This largely puts the fruit of your labor at the mercy of government bureaucrats and deprives your family of their just inheritance.

communism778

4. Confiscation of rebel and emigrant property.

The federal government has been busy taxing, and in some cases confiscating, the wealth of those who choose to emigrate out of the country. This is often called the Exit Tax. It is little more than highway robbery. Also, the government’s mafia arm, the IRS, routinely uses its power to bully dissidents and those whose politics diverge from the Marxist Establishment’s.

5. Establish a national bank and state monopoly over credit.

Establishing a national bank is considered by many to be the linchpin of the communist battle plan. Lenin purportedly said that setting up a national bank is 90% of communizing a country. Whether or not he said it, it has an element of truth. In 1913, a Marxist-style central bank was foisted upon the Republic in a sham process that you can read about in Antony C. Sutton’s book The Federal Reserve Conspiracy and G. Edward Griffin’s tome The Creature from Jekyll Island. The Federal Reserve is a privately-owned cartel of banks that is unaccountable to our government, yet controls inflation and interest rates, and prints or restricts currency at will, causing economic recessions and depressions. The Federal Reserve system is indeed a monopoly over the American economy. No one knows precisely who owns shares in this monstrosity, but it is certain that a small clique of elitist foreigners and U.S. citizens wield power over our economy via the Federal Reserve.

6. Centralization of communication and transportation.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was set up by FDR’s Marxist administration and has engaged in restricting free speech ever since in direct violation of the 1st Amendment. The federal government has also tried to centralize the means of transportation by establishing government-run companies like Amtrak. And various public figures are also now calling for “free” public transport. Of course, nothing government gives is “free” and “free” public transport would require an increase in taxes and/or more government intervention in our right of mobility.

7. Government takeover of factories and land.

Federal intervention in agriculture has grown massively over the years. In fact, the first government agency infiltrated by communist spies was the Department of Agriculture. The Soviet Union forcibly set up collectivized farms and deliberately instituted policies that led to mass famine. Thankfully we have not traveled that far down the path to Marxist utopia, but the government’s hand is still in places it should not be. And, of course, American factories and industry have been massively hampered by regulations dictated by interventionist agencies like OSHA and the EPA.

8. Everyone must work.

While work is of course a good thing, and the virtues of personal industry are to be commended and encouraged, this Marxist proposal would force people to work and would mobilize them under federal auspices. FDR’s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) is one example of this plan in action. Additionally, many signature pieces of socialist legislation – such as the dastardly Equal Rights Amendment – have been aimed at getting women out of the home and into the workforce like they are in Russia. The federal government’s Civilian Inmate Labor Program is also a concerning glimpse into our Marxist future if we don’t change course immediately.

9. Abolish rural communities and move everyone to cities.

This plank has Agenda 21 or Agenda 2030 written all over it. A major part of the U.N. 2030 program is to move people from rural areas into an urban environment where they can be more easily controlled. Corporate farming and various federal zoning acts are also nudging us in the direction Marx envisioned.

10. Free education in government schools.

Finally, the communists crave control over education. They offer “free” education. Of course, with “free” anything comes government intervention. Marx’s idea was to establish a government public school system that would undo centuries of godly, grounded, good education. Instead, children would be ushered into Darwinistic, socialistic, unChristian thinking that would translate into support for the communist world revolution. Today, the federal government blackmails schools into submission through the Department of Education and forces egregious programs like No Child Left Behind and Common Core on America’s youth.

In my opinion, this is the most important of the Ten Planks because of the true adage that what is taught in the schools one generation becomes the policy of the next. America is undergoing a gut-wrenching social transformation. We are on the verge of embracing full cultural Marxism. While the conspirators use media, Hollywood, and other means to brainwash people, public schools are driving the indoctrination process. LGBT propaganda in particular has infested our schools and drag queens, homosexuals, and mentally ill transgenders have full access to our children. It is altogether possible that public schools have become the greatest threat to our survival as a society because they have been taken over by the Reds and are little more than communist training centers. I urge parents who care about their children’s education and upbringing to homeschool wherever circumstances allow.

As you can see, the Marxists have been working overtime to gut our Constitution and transform our government and society into a socialist state. Following Marx’s economic interpretation of history, the communists in our midst have focused on plundering American wealth, restricting our stewardship over our own property, and centralizing power over our pocketbooks in the hands of the state. At least a portion of all Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto have been implemented in our Republic, causing us to falter as a People.

Marx’s Manifesto not only offers a ten-point blueprint for victory, but lists other goals that will assist the communists in their ascent. The Manifesto rants against the family unit in these words:

Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists.

On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie. But this state of things finds its complement in the practical absence of the family among the proletarians, and in public prostitution.

The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital.

Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents? To this crime we plead guilty.

But, you say, we destroy the most hallowed of relations, when we replace home education by social.

And your education! Is not that also social, and determined by the social conditions under which you educate, by the intervention direct or indirect, of society, by means of schools, &c.? The Communists have not invented the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention, and to rescue education from the influence of the ruling class.

The bourgeois clap-trap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parents and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more, by the action of Modern Industry, all the family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labour.”

communism853

The communists believe that the traditional, patriarchal, Christian family unit is inherently exploitative. They think that the sacred relationship between children and parents is “disgusting.” They openly seek to take children from their homes and indoctrinate them in public schools with a “social” education that will turn them into good little proletarians.

What’s more, Marxists want to abolish the family! The family unit is the most important institution in society. As goes the family, goes the nation. The communists understand that no matter how strong their grip on public schools or communication systems is, they will never win over the hearts and minds of people who are educated at home in the principles of truth, Liberty, and righteousness. As always, their solution is to use the strong arm of government to pry children from their parents’ loving embrace and raise them as de facto wards of the state.

I now note the Marxist assault on faith, the other key pillar of civilization. We all know that communism is openly hostile to religion (and Christianity specifically). In his 1847 Draft of a Communist Confession of Faith mentioned earlier, which served as a forerunner to the Manifesto, Marx wrote:

All religions which have existed hitherto were expressions of historical stages of development of individual peoples or groups of peoples. But communism is that stage of historical development which makes all existing religions superfluous and supersedes them.”

It should be noted that Karl Marx was a Satan-worshiping Jew introduced to the communist faith by the influential “communist rabbi” Moses Hess. I don’t say this in a polemical way, but as a statement of fact. The Reverend Richard Wurmbrand makes a compelling case for Marx’s Satanism in his fantastic little book Marx & Satan. Most other early communist leaders were also Jews and many, such as Lenin, are known to have attended pagan and occult rituals. The Soviet Union established museums of atheism (often inside of closed down Christian churches as a form of mockery). In at least the Odessa museum of atheism, a statue of Baphomet was erected. Eerily, The Satanic Temple is busy erecting Baphomet statues in the United States today.

Communist antagonism to religion is infamous. The Communist Manifesto brushed off religious objections to its proposals as not deserving of serious examination.” But Marx’s contempt bled threw nonetheless. In one place, he alleged: “Nothing is easier than to give Christian asceticism a Socialist tinge . . . Christian Socialism is but the holy water with which the priest consecrates the heart-burnings of the aristocrat.” Marx said that Christianity was a fad whose time to give way to a new and better system has come.

If it wasn’t obvious already, the communists admit that their goal is to seize political power and establish a dictatorship over the earth. Marx wrote:

The immediate aim of the Communists is the same as that of all other proletarian parties: formation of the proletariat into a class, overthrow of the bourgeois supremacy, conquest of political power by the proletariat.”

Again, the Marxists want to seize power by abolishing private property. In my article “Private Property Essential to Liberty,” I discussed the inseparable connection of Liberty and property at length. I sum up my conclusions by quoting John Adams who stated: “Property must be secured, or liberty cannot exist” (John Adams, “Discourses on Davila,” Chapter XIII). Since stewardship over one’s property is the sum of individual Liberty, the communists seek to destroy Liberty. Marx admitted:

[T]he theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.”

communism482

A recent poll demonstrates how successful communist propagandizing has been in America. The poll found that a whopping 70% of millennials would consider voting for a socialist candidate. 36% of those same millennials openly supported communism. I quote from a MarketWatch article discussing the disturbing development:

Marion Smith, executive director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, says he’s troubled by the findings of the poll.

““The historical amnesia about the dangers of communism and socialism is on full display in this year’s report,” Smith said in a statement on Monday. “When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas.”

Other nuggets from the report include that 22% of millennials believe “society would be better if all private property was abolished,” and that 45% of Generation Z members and millennials believe that “all higher education should be free.””

Yes, the communists have met with wild success in waging their world revolution. They’re capturing the minds of the youth and raising a generation apparently willing to embrace the siren song of socialism. If people knew the true origins of the Communist League, however, perhaps they would be less likely to favor its proposals.

In the preface to the 1888 English edition of the Manifesto, Marx’s cohort and co-author Frederick Engels wrote that the Communist League which hired them and published the document was a “secret society.” Most people scarcely know about the Communist League let alone its progenitors. To see communism in its proper context, however, we must know its roots.

What if I told you that the Communist League was an Illuminati splinter organization and that communism is nothing but Illuminism with a new name? The Order of Illuminati was founded by the Jewish occultist Adam Weishaupt in Bavaria on May 1, 1776. May 1, not coincidentally, is the communists’ signature holiday and a major date on the pagan calendar. In 1782, the Illuminati joined forces with Jewish radicals and certain groups of Freemasons at the Masonic Congress of Wilhelmsbad.

communism392

When Weishaupt’s Order was discovered a little after the Wilhelmsbad Congress, the Bavarian authorities attempted to squash it. By that point, however, Illuminati cells had been established in numerous countries from France to England to the United States. One of the major Illuminati front groups is known to history as the Jacobins. The Jacobins, of course, fomented the bloody French Revolution and introduced the guillotine to the world during its Reign of Terror. The French Revolution was merely a test run for the later putsch in Russia in 1917.

Other Illuminati offshoots included the German Union, the Tugenbund, and the League of Virtue. The League of Outlaws also popped up in France. In 1836, the League of Outlaws split in two. The more radical faction moved to England and called itself the League of the Just. It was this same League that hired Marx and Engels to write a confession of the group’s faith and renamed itself the Communist League.

The Communist League went through numerous iterations after its abortive attempt to launch continent-wide revolution in 1848. Finally, it came to be called the Social Democratic Workers’ Party. One faction within this Party was led by Lenin and was deemed the Bolsheviks. It was the Bolsheviks who, with Western socialist financial backing, launched the coup against the Russian government in 1917. When they established the Soviet Union, they reverted back to the name “communist.” The Soviet communists, however, were lineal descendants of the Order of Illuminati. A British documentary “Angels and Demons Revealed” did an analysis of secret GRU documents obtained after the fake “fall” of the Soviet Union wherein the Illuminati seal – the pyramid and all-seeing eye – was found hidden inside an unassuming period, suggesting that the communists have known all along who they are and what they represent.

Today, communist parties exist throughout the world, including in our own country. Bernie Sanders, and avowed socialist, is currently leading the Democratic Party candidate pack. Red China is formally a communist state. Radical communists rule everywhere from South Africa to Venezuela to Russia to North Korea to France. And the Fabian Socialists which wield so much power in the West are not a divergent groups, but are in fact ideological adherents of Marx. Socialism is just communism with a smiley face. Or, as the Fabian symbol depicts, it is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

communism839

I want younger people to understand that when they support socialism/communism, they are supporting the schemes of the Illuminati. Socialism/communism is not a utopian ideology that preaches “equality” or that promises “free” things, but a plot for world domination concocted by a Satanic secret society that has launched the bloodiest campaigns of revolution recorded in history. Even those who do not want to believe the links between the communism and the Illuminism must believe Engels when he stated that the League of the Just was a “secret society.” Communism is the brainchild of a secret band of criminals, plunderers, and murderers that still exists today.

In his book Secret Combinations Today, Robert E. Hales wrote that The Communist Manifesto is the most widely read book in the world. Whether or not that is true, it is certainly one of the most assigned and studied books anywhere. Hales spoke of the impact the Manifesto has had on the human family:

To blind, deceive and captivate those in other parts of the world, Satan employed the on-going work of the secret combinations. Through instruments responsive to his teachings, Satan influenced the creation of an organization with teachings and philosophies in direct opposition to the teachings of Christ. He structured this organization for the purpose of binding the souls of men. This organization spawned a new political order and found its most successful exposure through a document titled The Communist Manifesto. . . .

. . . The Communist Manifesto has had great effect upon the children of Adam, and literally billions have been and are currently held captive by those who have adopted, professed and espoused its tenets. Despite the recent crumbling of the iron curtain, hundreds of millions of people are still captivated by its tentacles” (Robert E. Hales, Secret Combinations Today: A Voice of Warning, 140).

Karl Marx was the agent used by the Evil One to popularize his gospel of hate, deception, and darkness. The Manifesto is an evil document that, admittedly, gives me a strange feeling to read – a visceral feeling of total revulsion and disgust. I cannot help but think the unpleasant feeling is caused by my spirit recoiling at doctrines that are innately wrong, inherently threatening, and totally devoid of light and truth.

I wind down this piece with a quote from Ben Moreell about what Marxists of all stripes really seek to achieve by implementing the dictates of The Communist Manifesto, and what we can do to stem the rushing tide:

The fact is that we are now mobilizing to fight a communist enemy who is supposedly thousands of miles away. But, in truth, we need not travel so far to find him.

This is not so surprising if one but stops to reflect. Communism is not an army, nor even a dictatorship. Communism is an idea. It is a belief that individual freedom, as a way of life, will not work; a belief that certain ordinary mortals like you and me, who, mostly by fortuitous circumstance, happen to occupy the seats of government for a short time, are far more capable of running your life than you are; it is a fear that if we, the people, are left free to manage our own affairs, most of us will go hungry and be cold; it is a repudiation of the free market, where willing buyers and willing sellers voluntarily arrive at a figure agreeable to both; it is a false thesis that employers and employees belong to different classes and are natural enemies; it is a process whereby some people use the power of government to make other people conform to their views and desires; it is a coerced debasement of the intelligence and integrity and dignity of the individual human being, who must bow his head in deference to the views of political masters. . . .

I am very glad that we have a form of government that requires voting, because so long as this condition exists, there is nothing to prevent us from voting against these immoral measures that are leading the American people into bondage to their own government. It is still possible to achieve freedom. If we really want to face the responsibility, to pay the price, we can still have it!” (Ben Moreell, To Communism . . . Via Majority Vote, 28, 31)

Communism seeks to obliterate individual Freedom and erase our individuality. It aims to collectivize society into an indistinguishable mass where individuals are mere cogs in the machine of the state. It desires to subjugate everyone and to make us slaves in a global GULAG. If communists get their way, national sovereignty will be demolished, a one-world dictatorship will be established, and humanity will be ushered into the Satanic dogmas of the Adversary by his Illumined henchmen.

At its core, communism is organized rebellion against God. The struggle between communism and Freedom is a spiritual one. It is light vs darkness, good vs evil, individuality vs collectivism, Liberty vs slavery, life vs death, God vs Satan. Everything mankind has traditionally held dear is on the line. The stakes are our Faith, Families, and Freedom.

communism43

We can still win this war if we are willing to pay the price. We are losing, especially in the arenas of culture and spirituality, but we can change the flow of events if we so will it. It requires sacrifice. It requires time and effort. It requires humility. It requires a willingness to study and educate ourselves and perhaps admit that we’ve been wrong about things. It requires genuine repentance. And it requires us to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk and back up our rhetoric with action. We simply must have “a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence” and “pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Dear reader, communism is the greatest threat to Faith, Families, and Freedom that exists anywhere on earth. It is a Satanic threat. It is a literal conspiracy designed to overthrow the Liberty of all nations and bring us into bondage by the most brutal means. It openly seeks to establish a worldwide “dictatorship” where all power is “in the hands of the state.” And so, if there is one takeaway from this article, it is this: Communism must die for America to survive!

The Homosexual, the Jew, and the Indian

The Democratic Party has entered upon a brave new world as Iowan Democrats threw their support this past week behind three of the most radical candidates ever to run for high office in America: Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. This article will show how Buttigieg, Sanders, and Warren – a homosexual revolutionary, a Jewish-Marxist, and a fake Indian – represent the public face of the radicalized Democratic Party and what it says about America’s future.

Democrats16

The Democratic Party has perhaps never fielded such radical candidates as those currently vying for the presidential nomination. Yes, they’ve had closet communists like FDR and Obama, but they concealed their true principles in order to deceive the electorate. Today’s Democrat frontrunners, however, have gone full throttle into socialism and cultural depravity, openly courting the extreme “left.”

The apparent winner of Iowa’s Democratic primary race was Pete Buttigieg, a homosexual married to another man. When, despite some major discrepancies in the numbers, Buttigieg declared victory in Iowa, he recognized “the future first gentleman of the United States,” his husband Chasten Buttigieg. His shout out was met with raucous cheers from his mostly female crowd who began a cult-like chant of the name “Chasten.”

Perhaps Buttigieg’s descent into radicalism was inevitable. His father, the Maltese immigrant Joseph Buttigieg, was a Jesuit-Marxist university professor. The Washington Examiner reported:

The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin. . . .

He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory”. . . .

““They’re part of a wider international community of Marxist theorists and academicians with a particular devotion to the writings of the late Italian Marxist theorist Antonio Gramsci, who died over 80 years ago. Gramsci was all about applying Marxist theory to culture and cultural institutions — what is often referred to as a ‘long march through the institutions,’ such as film, media, and especially education,” [Paul] Kengor told the Washington Examiner.

Pete Buttigieg, an only child, shared a close relationship with his father. In his memoir Shortest Way Home, Pete called his dad a “man of the left”. . . .

Pete wrote that his dad was supportive when he came out as gay. . . .

A self-described progressive, [Pete] Buttigieg has called to abolish the Electoral College system, supports a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and thinks that climate change is a national security threat.”

Buttigieg4

It is fitting that a devoted Gramscian Marxist would produce a gay, Marxist son who would seek to foist his perversions on the American public. For those who may not be aware, the homosexual movement in the United States was founded by the homosexual Harry Hay, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA. He founded the Mattachine Society, the first homosexual society in America. He later founded the international group Radical Faeries and the pedophile network the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA).

Communists have always been at the forefront of degrading American institutions and pressuring us to accept the abnormal, sinful, and destructive LGBT movement which is part and parcel of The Communist Manifesto’s threat to “abolish the family.” The wave of cultural Marxism sweeping over our society is the greatest threat we face. The communist-led feminist and LGBT movements are at the forefront of converting America from a Christian Republic into a godless Marxian state.

Buttigieg’s presidential campaign has proved that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Just like his father, Mayor Pete is a rabid Marxist. In his Latino outreach program, Buttigieg invoked a communist rallying cry. The Blaze reports:

Buttigieg announced the initiative on his social media accounts by invoking a Spanish-language slogan that is raising eyebrows among Latino leaders. The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, tweeted “El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido” (“the people united, will never be defeated”), a protest chant that was famously popularized by Latin American communists. The saying was also featured in several campaign communications, including as a call-to-action on a Latino website. . . .

It is unclear which Americans Buttigieg is referring to, but Latin American Marxists have rallied around the phrase for years.”

Buttigieg2

Buttigieg is an Episcopalian raised in Catholicism. However, as a homosexual, he’s obviously not a very good Catholic or Episcopalian. His brand of so-called Christianity” is of the Marxist variety. He believes strongly in Liberation Theology or “progressive Christianity.” R. Albert Mohler, Jr. has written:

Despite the media buzz, when you look closely at Mayor Buttigieg, you find a very progressive candidate. Though he asserts himself as a sane alternative to the far left fringes of the Democratic Party, his moral issues are in lock step with the most progressive wings of the leftist agenda.

Buttigieg, as homosexual married to a man, zealously advocates for pro-LGBTQ issues. When it comes to issues of abortion, Buttigieg supports an abortion-on-demand system fully funded by the taxpayers of the United States. According to Buttigieg, women ought to have the right to secure an abortion for virtually any circumstance at any point during a pregnancy. . . .

While Buttigieg acknowledges the existence of a creator, he avows that his sexual identity exists as an extension of the creator’s will—God made him that way. This is a common argument from LGBTQ activists that now rings louder with the candidacy of Buttigieg.

The argument, however, in no way squares with biblical orthodoxy or the teaching of Scripture.

Yet, Buttigieg demands that evangelical Christians ‘evolve’ their understanding of holy Scripture. . . .

Buttigieg subscribes to Liberation theology—specifically, he espouses LGBTQ Liberation Theology . . . This theology replaces the authority of Scripture with the authority of human experience. Moreover, it understands sin not as a transgression against the law and character of God, but as the oppression of a minority by a majority class. . . .

. . . He does not merely espouse a liberal political ideology—instead, he contends that his Christian faith leads him to no other conclusion other than a progressive agenda. He has made a theological argument for a political reality. He has reinserted liberal theology as the only viable way of reading the Scriptures. He posits a place for religion in the public square, but only a religion in line with liberal theology.”

The Marxist Pope Francis is also a proponent of Liberation Theology, as are most of his fellow Jesuits. “Christians” around the world are embracing this new social gospel and introducing radical concepts that are nowhere to be found in scripture or that blatantly contradict the Bible. For instance, against all logic and scriptural evidence, Buttigieg claims that God made him gay and that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. In an interview with CNN host Anderson Cooper, a fellow homosexual, Buttigieg responded to whether homosexuality is a sin by saying “I don’t believe it is.” He opined:

Well, the decision was definitely made way above my pay grade. And if you belong to the Christian tradition that I belong to, then you believe that God loves you and you look around and you notice that you’re gay and those two things exist at the same time.

. . . I really feel that [my] marriage moved me closer to God.”

Buttigieg subscribes to the false ideology that homosexuals are born rather than made. Of course, everyone with common sense knows that a God who has forbidden homosexuality and declared it a sin would not create His precious children gay. The fiery Christian leader, Boyd K. Packer, once said:

We teach a standard of moral conduct that will protect us from Satan’s many substitutes or counterfeits for marriage. We must understand that any persuasion to enter into any relationship that is not in harmony with the principles of the gospel must be wrong. . . .

Some suppose that they were preset and cannot overcome what they feel are inborn temptations toward the impure and unnatural. Not so! Remember, God is our Heavenly Father” (President Boyd K. Packer, “Cleansing the Inner Vessel,” General Conference, October, 2010).

Buttigieg5

A loving Father in Heaven would not give His sons and daughters unnatural same-sex tendencies. And neither does God tempt anyone to sin (James 1:13). To Buttigieg, however, his gayness makes him feel closer to God, showing just how out-of-touch he really is. If he bothered to actually read the Bible, he would know that homosexuality is bluntly condemned by the holy prophets. From God commanding us to “be fruitful, and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), which those afflicted by homosexuality literally cannot do, to commanding a man to “cleave unto his wife” (Genesis 2:24), to issuing the death penalty for homosexuality (Leviticus 20:13), to stating that homosexuality is “against nature” (Romans 1:26), the Bible clearly refutes Buttigieg and his phony social gospel.

As a homosexual progressive of Marxist lineage, Buttigieg is an almost ideal candidate for the radical socialists who masquerade as Democrats. He has said:

Here’s my message to progressives in the party: I would be the most progressive presidential nominee we’ve put forward in a generation.”

There have of course been other homosexuals in government and positions of public trust, such Eleanor Roosevelt, and many suspected homosexuals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, but Buttigieg is different in that he has made his homosexuality the focal point of his campaign. Everything else he promotes is only a means of fundamentally transforming America from a Christian nation to a Marxist utopia where anything goes and morality is relative.

The fact that a proud homosexual, and one that harbors communist views at that, is the Democratic Party’s frontrunner tells you everything you need to know about Democrats’ moral compass – or lack thereof.

The Jew Bernie Sanders, who finished in a near statistical tie with Buttigieg in Iowa, is yet another example of the Democratic Party’s march toward communism. Though most Jews don’t like to acknowledge it, and, indeed, call it “anti-Semiticto say, the truth is that communism was created and forced upon the world primarily by Jews. Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Order of Illuminati, was a Jew. It was an Illuminati splinter group known as the League of the Just that hired the Jew Karl Marx to polish off a manifesto containing the group’s beliefs. This was published in 1848 as The Communist Manifesto and the League renamed themselves the Communist League.

Bernie Sanders18

Eventually, the part-Jew Vladimir Lenin, who was married to a Jewess and spoke Yiddish, came to head the Communist League, by then called the Social Democratic Workers’ Party. He led this group of predominantly European Jews, funded largely by Jewish bankers, in a vicious coup against Russia. The result was the creation of the Soviet Union, whose first government was about 85% Jewish. By the 1930s, under the reign of Stalin who was married to a Jewess, 1/3 of all Jews in Russia were employed by the Soviet state as commissars, KGB thugs, and GULAG commandants.

It is fitting, then, that the most successful socialist political figure in recent American history is also a Jew. As a Jewish-Marxist, Bernie Sanders doesn’t care about preserving America’s Christian heritage. In 2017, when President Donald Trump appointed an outspoken Christian, Russell Vought, to a position in the White House, Bernie Sanders challenged his worthiness to hold the office on religious grounds. Sanders suggested that Vought was “Islamophobic” simply because he was a Christian and had said he didn’t believe in the same God as Muslims do. Therefore, Sanders voted against Mr. Vought’s appointment, showing his resentment of Christians in general.

In a Times of Israel article from earlier this month, we learn that Bolshevik Bernie considers his Jewishness a key factor in determining his politics. While campaigning in New Hampshire, Sanders was asked by a Jewish woman what role his ethnicity plays in his life. He responded:

It impacts me very profoundly. When I try to think about the views that I came to hold there are two factors. One I grew up in a family that didn’t have a lot of money . . . and the second one is being Jewish.”

The article then continued with the obligatory “Holocaust” propaganda:

Sanders recalled as a child reading “big picture books of World War II” and “tears were rolling down my cheeks” as he learned the fate of Jews. He also remembered seeing Holocaust survivors in his Brooklyn neighborhood with numbers tattooed on their arms, and a recent visit to his father’s hometown in Poland, where locals took him and his brother to a site where Nazis committed a mass murder of Jews.

Much of Sanders’ extended family perished in the Holocaust.”

The “Holocaust” has become part and parcel of the Jewish worldview. It’s rare to find a Jew that doesn’t cling religiously to the old atrocity propaganda and that doesn’t seek to punish white people and Europeans for perceived injustices and alleged “anti-Semitism.” It should be noted, however, that what they call “anti-Semitism” is actually anti-communism. And what they claim happened in the “Holocaust” has been refuted time and time again by the evidence and by historians all across the world – including some Jewish and Israeli historians.

Even the former head archivist at Auschwitz, Franciszek Piper, rejects large parts of the “Holocaust” narrative. In a video interview with the Jewish investigator David Cole, Piper stated that the infamous gas chambers” were reconstructed by the Soviets after World War II. Of course, he spun the yarn that it was a “gas chamber” before being turned into an air raid shelter . . . before again being reconverted into a “gas chamber” by the Soviets to show the world what had happened. And yet the Auschwitz tour guides tell tourists that the “gas chambers” are the originals used by those mean ol’ “Nazis.” Sounds legit. And yet people have the audacity to call me anti-Semitic for questioning what the “official” historians themselves dispute and for citing books such as Carlos Porter’s Made in Russia: The Holocaust!

Democrats18

Being Jewish almost compels Sanders into radicalism of thought and action. Communism is the most vicious version of this radicalism. Three-fourths of U.S. Jews also vote Democrat. And Jews worldwide are firmly on the socialist side of the political spectrum. Jews have been at the forefront of every socialist movement of the past two hundred years, both in our country and abroad. As Winston Churchill accurately stated:

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 . . . 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.”

Astonishing, indeed. The horrid screed You Gentiles, written by the Jewish Romanian author Maurice Samuel in 1924, acknowledges the Jewish hand in promoting social revolution. Samuel was proud that Jews are more disposed toward revolution than Gentiles. In fact, he said that this urge toward communistic revolution “is dominant in us.” He likewise wrote:

Jewish socialism and Jewish socialists are the banner bearers of the world’s “armies of liberation” (Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, 142).

And again, Samuel boasted:

We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which is not in your nature to build” (Samuel, You Gentiles, 155).

As long as they support socialism-communism, they will indeed be “the destroyers.” As noted, international Jewry’s connection to communism is historical fact. Communism, which is a Satanic movement aimed at the “liberation” (i.e. subjugation) of mankind, is disproportionately in the hands of Jews. Bernie Sanders is yet the latest evidence of this long-established trend.

It is not only relevant, but imperative, to note that Bernie Sanders is a Jew. I personally could never bring myself to knowingly vote for a non-Christian – whether Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, or atheist – regardless of his politics. America was founded as a Christian nation and our laws were originally grounded in Biblical Christianity. When we put non-Christians into office – radicals like Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Jerrold Nadler, Adam Schiff, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and others – we erode that sure foundation. It is imperative that we, as a People, turn back to Jesus Christ or we will be swept off this covenant land.

Even as I emphasize Sanders’ Jewishness, I hasten to clarify that his true religion and loyalty is to global communism. He is part of the murder cult of communism and was an open advocate of Soviet Russia at the height of the Cold War. Bernie wants to bring the United States into the Bolshevik brotherhood of slavery and misery. That a Jewish-socialist is on the verge of commandeering the Democratic Party should tell us all how far we’ve sunk as a nation.

Bernie Sanders27

One of the finest minds of the founding era, John Jay, encouraged Americans to vote for Christians. He said it is not only our privilege, but our duty. I end my remarks about Bolshevik Bernie Sanders with John Jay’s relevant quotation:

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers” (John Jay to John Murray, Jr., October 12, 1816, in Henry P. Johnston, ed., The Correspondence and Public Papers of John Jay, Vol. 4).

We now come to Elizabeth Warren, the Marxist dolt who thinks she’s an Indian. Warren is, without a doubt, one of the looniest candidates to run in a long time. Business Insider reported the following about Warren’s Indian controversy:

Records indicate that various points in her career, Warren went between identifying as white and Native American. The year before she was hired at the University of Pennsylvania, 1986, she listed herself as a ‘Minority Law Teacher’ on the American Association of Law Schools directory, a tip sheet for school administrators. She continued to list herself as such until 1995 and was repeatedly referenced as a minority in Penn’s yearly equity report. . . .

Warren’s campaign never offered conclusive evidence, but she told reporters that “being Native American is part of who our family is and I’m glad to tell anyone about that. I am just very proud of it.” . . . .

The New England genealogical society at first backed Warren’s claim, but upon further investigation, retracted their support, re-igniting the debate.”

Warren3

After President Trump challenged Pocahontas, as he likes to call her, to take a DNA test to substantiate her claims, she did. It was discovered that she is indeed an Indian . . . that is, if you consider 1/1024 Cherokee blood enough to qualify you as an Indian!

Warren at first boasted that the DNA test proved her claims – she was a real Indian. Then she later apologized for claiming she is Cherokee when the Cherokee Nation rebuffed her. I quote now from ZeroHedge article:

The unexpected apology breaks from Warren’s previous public stance, in which she refused to admit fault. . . .

The apology follows the publication of an opinion column by Chuck Hoskin Jr, the secretary of state of the Cherokee Nation, in the Tulsa World on Wednesday titled, “Elizabeth Warren can be a friend, but she isn’t a Cherokee citizen.”

In the column, Hoskin said Warren’s test, which her office said showed strong evidence that Ms. Warren has Native American pedigree “6-10 generations ago,” did not take into account that, for most Native Americans, culture and kinship is what creates tribal membership — not blood, and certainly not 1/1024th thereof.

““This concept of family is key to understanding why citizenship matters,” Mr. Hoskin wrote. “That is why it offends us when some of our national leaders seek to ascribe inappropriately membership or citizenship to themselves. They would be welcome to our table as friends, but claiming to be family to gain a spot at the table is unwelcome.””

Warren should be unwelcome at ever table in America, not just at the Indians’ table. But lying about being an Indian isn’t the only thing she’s fabricated. She once alleged that she was fired as an elementary school teacher because she was pregnant. The facts, however, contradict her feminist propaganda. The Washington Freebeacon reported:

The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was “visibly pregnant.” . . . .

The Board of Education minutes show a part-time contract for her first year of teaching received unanimous approval during an August 1970 board meeting. Meeting minutes from November 1970 confirm Warren’s account that she was working on an “emergency” teaching certificate, showing unanimous approval “that a provisional certificate be requested for Mrs. Elizabeth Warren in speech therapy.”

Toward the end of Warren’s first year on the job, in April 1971, the board approved her contract for the following school year, the meeting minutes show. Two months later, the meeting minutes indicate that Warren had tendered her resignation.

““The resignation of Mrs. Elizabeth Warren, speech correctionist effective June 30, 1971 was accepted with regret,” the June 16, 1971, minutes say.”

Warren8

Clearly, Warren’s fabricated tale of being fired is about as true as her stories of Indian heritage. Perhaps her 1/1024th Indian blood is causing her, like other Indians, to see injustices where they don’t exist; and to invent “atrocities” that never happened.

When she’s not trying to bury the hatchet with her fellow Indian squaws and braves or speaking with a forked tongue about being fired from a job she actually resigned from, she’s out on the war path proposing spending plans that would bankrupt the nation. To wit, Warren recently concocted a socialist medicare plan “that would cost $52 trillion over the next decade, including $20 trillion in new spending, which would be covered largely by an array of taxes on corporations, the wealthy and employers in general.” Who doesn’t love new taxes? Especially in a time of economic boom!

Elizabeth Warren is perhaps the ultimate hack in the Democratic Party. But she isn’t just daft. She is also malicious. Fearing what the truth would do to expose her as the enemy to the Republic she is, Pocahontas has introduced a scheme to criminalize what she calls “disinformation.” In an article “Criminalizing free speech online? Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that,” Brad Polumbo wrote:

On Wednesday, the 2020 candidate released a plan that would impose criminal and civil penalties on those who are deemed guilty of spreading “disinformation.” In a tweet unveiling the plan, she said, “Disinformation and online foreign interference erode our democracy, and Donald Trump has invited both.” The Massachusetts Democrat continued, “Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election must be fully prepared to take this on—and I’ve got a plan to do it.” . . .

There is a real issue with people believing fake or misleading information they see online. . . .

But criminalizing “misinformation”? That’s the stance of a dictator seeking to squash dissent, not a candidate trying to win over voters earnestly.”

Specifically, Warren proposed:

Push to create civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating false information about when and how to vote in U.S. elections . . . I will push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating this kind of information, which has the explicit purpose of undermining the basic right to vote.”

Warren7

This prompts several questions, especially for a person like myself who is constantly writing about political candidates and current events. For one, would I be penalized for writing that Warren is a fake Indian? Though she is technically 1/1024 Indian, that hardly seems enough to qualify. If she qualifies as Indian, then I certainly do through a not-too-distant ancestor on my Dad’s side. Also, would I be penalized for calling Bernie Sanders “Bolshevik Bernie” since he’s not technically a Bolshevik (though his principles are Bolshevist)? Or would I be penalized for saying that Pete Buttigieg is not a real Christian because of his belief in “progressive Christianity”? In all honesty, who gets to decide what is and is not “disinformation”? Snopes? The Democratic Party?

Joseph Sacco, writing for The Resurgent, summed up what Warren’s scheme is really all about:

Between all the talk of free college, student loan debt forgiveness, and impeachment, Elizabeth Warren is out to destroy whatever freedoms she doesn’t like.

Warren plans on destroying the First Amendment and the rights of corporations by holding corporations accountable if misinformation is spread on their platforms and it affects voter turnout.

How Warren’s plan would actually determine how or when said misinformation is not clear but she is very sure that they should be punished. . . .

I find it especially rich that a candidate who lied about her Native American “heritage” is now lecturing American’s and corporations about spreading disinformation, and then threatening them with criminal charges.

But again, progressives are about power and control and they will destroy the rights of those who don’t agree with them.”

And that is the heart of why Pocahontas is so wrong – because she is a “progressive” (i.e. Marxist). Like all socialists, she seeks power. And she seeks power by centralizing all things in the hands of the state. From destroying our right to speak out and spread information online, to proposing plans to bankrupt the country, Elizabeth Warren has shown her true colors. She may not be a red-skinned Indian, but she is Red through and through.

Warren10

When you consider their radical principles, outlandish policy proposals, and routine lies, what do Buttigieg, Sanders, and Warren mean for America? I submit that the campaigns of these three Marxists constitute a manifestation of the dramatic cultural shift taking place in our country. While there may be political wins now and then, we have lost nearly every battle on the cultural front.

The LGBT, feminist, transgender, and MGTOW movements are tearing apart our families and marriages and producing a generation of confused young people. Christianity is decreasing at the same time Wicca is the fastest-growing religion in America. The Satanic Temple and other perverse groups are busy erecting Satanic statues throughout the nation and infiltrating local city councils with pagans who are replacing Christian prayers with pagan ones. The infanticide of American infants rolls on. Pornography is on the rise and the Lord’s law of chastity has become virtually meaningless. Profanity is becoming normal and accepted. In almost every discernible way, the American People are losing touch with their Christian roots.

The advent of the Homosexual, the Jew, and the Indian in American politics foretells of darker days yet to come. It portends future flirtation with the forces of cultural Marxism. It suggests that we are becoming desensitized and are beginning to accept what our forefathers understood was harmful. We know from Alexander Pope’s famous saying, that people eventually embrace what they tolerate. He wrote:

Vice is a monster of so frightful mien, As to be hated needs but to be seen; Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face, We first endure, then pity, then embrace.”

Democrats17

God help us to wake up before we become so accustomed to seeing sexual degenerates, communists, and liars parade before our eyes that we eventually embrace them. May we realize that putting homosexuals like Pete Buttigieg, Marxist Jews like Bernie Sanders, and liars like the fake Indian Elizabeth Warren, into public office can only be dangerous for our Republic. We need men of integrity, virtue, and Christian piety to represent us – not anti-Christians, Marxists, and phonies. Let us finally realize, dear reader, that the Democrats’ brave new world, were we to embrace it, would be a hellish dystopia straight out of Marx’s wildest fantasies.

I Hope Bernie Sanders Wins

In the year [2020], the United States and the rest of the world face two very different political paths.” – Bernie Sanders

Yes, you read the title correctly: I hope Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic Party nomination. In 2016, I wrote an article for the Independent American Party wherein I stated that the biggest story of the year was not President Trump’s meteoric rise, but the fact that Bernie Sanders – an open and avowed socialist – was so close to securing the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. Because of Bernie Sanders’ blatant admission that he is a socialist, I want him to win the Democratic Party nomination in 2020 so that the enemy no longer has a mask to hide behind.

Bernie Sanders11

For decades, Republicans and Democrats alike have pretended to be something they’re not. They’ve lied to the American People about who they are and what they stand for. They’ve deliberately obscured and downplayed their party platforms in their effort to convince average folks that they’re real patriots who love America.

If these two wings of the same bird of prey were honest, however, they’d sing a much different tune. If Democrats told the truth, they would tell the American People that they are full-fledged socialists who want to massively expand the federal government, shred the Constitution, and curtail individual rights. Republicans would also be forced to admit that their principles have drifted so far into the Red that they are also socialists, though on the whole not as extreme as the Democrats. At least many Republicans don’t yet think infanticide is a human right (though, sadly, they do little to protect the unborn).

The superficial division between socialist Democrats and socialist Republicans is similar to that between European socialists at the start of the Twentieth Century. In 1903, the Social-Democratic Workers’ Party divided into two factions, the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks. Despite being in the minority, Vladimir Lenin’s faction called themselves “Bolsheviks,” which comes from the Russian word bolshinstvo, or “majority.” The term “Menshevik” comes from the word “menshinstvo,” or minority. The latter group included notable figures such as the Jewish Marxist Leon Trotsky who later joined Lenin and became the number two man in the Soviet Union.

The difference between the Bolshevik and Menshevik point of view was slim and primarily concerned tactics rather than principles. The Mensheviks wanted to work through the political process to gain governmental power whereas the Bolsheviks contended that violent revolution was necessary to secure control of the state. In both cases, however, the ultimate objectives of their collective ideology were the same: Establish a Marxist monopoly on power across the globe; abolish private property; abolish the family; collectivize humanity; and rid the world of the “opium of the masses” (i.e. Christianity). And considering the fact that the Russian Revolution of 1905 was led by the Mensheviks, the reality is that there was no substantive difference between them and the Bolsheviks.

Today, Republicans and Democrats are in a similar situation. They outwardly quarrel about tactics (though occasionally on principles), but lock arms in their march toward centralization of federal power, expansion of the police state, continuation of bogus foreign wars, acceptance of cultural perversions, kow-towing to Israel, playing easy with communism, eviscerating our privacy, silencing our Freedom of speech and association, restricting the 2nd Amendment, and destroying the protections of our God-given rights codified in the Constitution.

RD1

Let’s make this even clearer: Democrats take us to war. Republicans take us to war. Democrats raise the specter of “Islamic terrorism.” Republicans raise the specter of “Islamic terrorism.” Democrats voted to pass the Patriot Act. Republicans voted to pass the Patriot Act. Democrats raise the debt ceiling and spend, spend, spend. Republicans raise the debt ceiling and spend, spend, spend. Democrats give bailouts to corporations and businesses that are “too-big-to-fail.” Republicans give bailouts to corporations and businesses that are “too-big-to-fail.” Democrats support red flag gun confiscation laws. Republicans – yes, even President Trump – support red flag gun confiscation laws. Though there has been a slight hitch to this lock-step, Republican-Democrat thrust against America’s Faith, Families, and Freedom with the rise of Donald Trump and the millions of relatively conservative folks he has emboldened, things are still substantively the same as they have been for decades.

With this context in mind, let’s bring this back to Bernie Sanders and the Democrats. Bernie Sanders is formally an “independent” running in the Democratic primary. Since Bernie is an “independent” and currently leading in the polls, it’s fair to ask: What does he really stand for?

Bolshevik Bernie, as I’ve called him for years, is nothing more than a dyed-in-the-wool socialist. He’s Red from head to foot. He’s on record visiting and vocally supporting the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Bolshevik Bernie and his wife even honeymooned in Soviet Russia in 1988. Soviet Sanders was enamored with the pristine image – the Potemkin villages – of communist paradise he was shown in Moscow and surrounding cities. He apparently loved one Soviet paradise so much that he visited another Soviet outpost in 1989 – Fidel Castro’s Cuba – which he also praised.

Bolshevik Bernie hasn’t hidden from the fact that he’s a sincere socialist. Specifically, he subscribes to “democratic socialism.” Socialists always try to confuse the rest of us by using bogus labels and distinctions like “Democratic Socialism,” “Social Democracy,” “Fabian Socialism,” “Progressivism,” “liberalism,” “Marxism,” “Maoism,” “communism,” “Bolshevism,” and so forth, when in reality they all believe in the same basic principles outlined in The Communist Manifesto.

The leftist news outlet Vox described Bolshevik Bernie’s philosophy in these rosy terms:

““Democratic socialism” in Sanders’s definition is a species of social democratic populism that pits the American people against a corrupt elite class that must be defeated outright. This emphasis on class antagonism, on the perfidies of the elite and their threat to American democracy, is what defines Sanders’s vision.”

Let’s cut through the jargon and reinterpret this paragraph in normal language. Vox is saying that Democratic Socialism is a form of working-class “populism” with an “emphasis on class antagonism” aimed at the “elite” ruling class. In other words, Sanders believes in class warfare, as every other communist in existence does. He couches his call for class warfare in classic communist terms – the working class (i.e. proletariat) vs. the “corrupt elite” (i.e. bourgeoisie). And what is his goal, according to Vox? He wants to save “democracy.”

Perhaps it would interest folks to know that The Communist Manifesto states that “the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy.” Communists everywhere always work for “democracy.” For instance, Article 1 of Red China’s constitution states: “The People’s Republic of China is a socialist state under the people’s democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants.” How is this different from Vox’s synopsis of Sanders’ “vision” for America?

Bernie Sanders17

Communists love to hoodwink people into thinking that they use the word “democracy” the same as most average people do; that is, to denote a government by the people and for the people. Instead, what Bernie and his fellow Reds mean when they say “democracy” is the “dictatorship of the proletariat.” Of course, what this means in reality is rule by a bureaucratic oligarchy claiming to speak for the people. In other words, domination by the state. Communism is the ultimate form of collectivized statism.

That Bolshevik Bernie is a communist is painfully obvious from proposals and statements he has made such as: “I favor the public ownership of utilities, banks and major industries.” Placing the “means of production” under control of the state is Marxism 101. What exactly does this socialist want to nationalize? I quote from a 2019 Washington Examiner article:

In the ideal America outlined by 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders, the majority of the economy would be centralized and socialized.

Atop our existing government spending, comprising some 40% of GDP, the Vermont Senator wouldn’t just nationalize one-fifth of the economy with a “Medicare For all” bill eliminating private health insurance. Under his Green New Deal plan, he would also nationalize most of the energy sector.

At a mere $16.3 trillion, the Sanders plan would go beyond simply spending measures to increase climate-focused research and development. It would literally centralize the means of domestic energy production. . . .

. . . Between “Medicare For all” and the Green New Deal, Sanders is seriously calling for the outright nationalization of 30% to 40% of the American economy.”

True to socialist form, Bernie claims that collectivizing society and placing the economy under the dictatorial control of the federal government will actually help create jobs and grow the economy. All history refutes this idea, but that’s what socialists claim. Whether Bernie believes his own propaganda is irrelevant. What is relevant is what placing the economy under state control really means. It means that government would gain a monopoly. It means that you would be accountable to government rather than government being accountable to you. It means that a group of unelected bureaucrats would micromanage your life. Central planning and Freedom are not compatible.

Central planning is what the Green New Deal is all about. In my books A Century of Red and Red Gadiantons, I made the case that the “green” movement is really Red. Yes, radical environmentalism is a Soviet creation. It makes sense, then, that Bolshevik Bernie and Comrade Cortez (AOC), his protege, have openly peddled this plan. Let’s discuss the Green New Deal momentarily because it really shows where Bernie stands on principle.

The Green New Deal uses as its justification for existence the hysteria over “climate change.” Despite there being zero evidence that man causes global warming or substantively effects the world’s climate, those who want to collectivize all power in the hands of an international superstate have a vested interest in scaring you to death so you will renounce your reason and give up your sovereignty. But what you should be really scared of is their top-down socialist schemes to usurp your Liberty.

Bernie Sanders6

Among other absurd proposals, the Green New Deal has suggested that every building in America would have to be reconstructed to comply with environmentalist dictates. This impossible goal is part of the reason it is estimated that the Green New Deal would cost $93 Trillion. Yes, Trillion. I quote from from The Daily Signal about this socialist scheme’s projected impact on the economy:

Just how much change would the Green New Deal bring to the economy? Put simply, it would bring it to its knees.

We know, because when we tried to use the Energy Information Administration’s National Energy Model to assess how the plan would affect the economy, the model crashed. . . .

One thing is clear: to meet these goals, Washington would have to force all Americans to reduce their energy consumption and/or switch to “green” energy sources—and fast. And the only way to do that is to impose coercive taxes and regulations. . . .

Before the model’s lights went out, we found that a $300 per ton carbon tax and associated regulations would cost a family of four nearly $8,000 per year in income lost to higher energy costs, consumer prices, and foregone wages. The 20-year cost totals $165,000.

During that same 20-year period, the tax would siphon off an average of 1.1 million jobs per year and diminish gross domestic product by a total of more than $15 trillion.

That’s a hefty price to pay for getting barely halfway to the net-zero emissions goal. Is it worth it?”

I think anyone who hasn’t allowed their emotion to overrule their reason must conclude that allegedly “protecting the environment” is not worth putting ourselves and our posterity in economic bondage. Are you prepared to pay the thousands upon thousands of dollars in taxes that the plan would require? How would that stimulate the economy? It wouldn’t. But Bernie lives in such a fantasy world that he believes “a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes.” As the authors note, millions of jobs would be sacrificed on the altar of radical environmentalism. Another “delight,” surely.

Even the co-founder of Greenpeace has denounced the Green New Deal as a catastrophe in the making. I quote from The New American:

Bernie Sanders3

The “Green New Deal” proposed by congressional Democrats is a “recipe for mass suicide” and the “most ridiculous scenario I ever heard,” Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore . . . In fact, Dr. Moore warned that if the “completely preposterous” prescriptions in the scheme were actually implemented, Americans could be forced to turn to cannibalism to avoid starvation — and they still would not survive. Other experts such as Craig Rucker, the executive director of the environmental group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), also sounded the alarm about the “green” proposal in Congress, comparing it to Soviet five-year plans and calling it a “prescription for disaster.””

Despite the absurdity of the Green New Deal and the fact that it would not only tank our economy, place Americans under an unheard of tax burden, and Sovietize our government, Bernie Sanders, at the present moment, has this on his website:

As president, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of addressing the climate crisis and act immediately to mobilize millions of people across the country in support of the Green New Deal. From the Oval Office to the streets, Bernie will generate the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with support for frontline and vulnerable communities and massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system.

We need a president who has the courage, the vision, and the record to face down the greed of fossil fuel executives and the billionaire class who stand in the way of climate action. We need a president who welcomes their hatred. Bernie will lead our country to enact the Green New Deal and bring the world together to defeat the existential threat of climate change.

As president, Bernie Sanders will launch the decade of the Green New Deal, a ten-year, nationwide mobilization centered around justice and equity during which climate change will be factored into virtually every area of policy, from immigration to trade to foreign policy and beyond.”

These openly communistic cries for the “transformation” of America and the “mobilization” of society against those “greedy” rich people are a minuscule part of a much longer diatribe of ignorance and anti-Americanism that ought to shock everyone. The mere fact that Sanders supports this abomination is reason enough why he ought never hold a position of public trust in America.

Using the same Marxist reasoning as above, Bolshevik Bernie has said the following:

We must recognize that in the 21st century, in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, economic rights are human rights. That is what I mean by democratic socialism.”

Bernie Sanders7

Isn’t it interesting that he sees his Democratic Socialism in economic terms? Marxists have always defined life in economic terms. The economic interpretation of history, society, and life is classic Marxism. The International Socialist Review once stated:

Karl Marx was the originator of the idea of the economic interpretation of history . . . Marx pointed out the fundamental character of economic changes in every phase of social life. His proposition was “that in every historical epoch, the prevailing mode of economic production and exchange, and the social organization necessarily following from it form the basis upon which is built up, and from which alone can be explained, the political and intellectual history of that epoch.””

By embracing the economic view of life and parroting Marxist slogans, Sanders puts himself squarely in the communist camp. America was not founded on economic theory, however. Yes, the free enterprise system – summed up by the great W. Cleon Skousen as the Freedom to try, the Freedom to buy, the Freedom to sell, the Freedom to fail – was a part of America’s rave success. However, it was not the foundation. The foundation was our forefathers’ Faith, Families, and Freedom. They demonstrated a “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,” embraced Christian values, trusted in the rule of law as opposed to the rule of autocrats or the state, valued the individual, divided power and rejected centralization, and protected the individual from government intervention in the details of his life.

Bolshevik Bernie’s bid for the presidency openly has the support of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). To them, he is the only candidate who can properly push forward their agenda. In a January 27 piece, the CPUSA ironically lambasted the Democrat-led impeachment charade as an example of the inefficiency of our constitutional form of government. They whined that political power under the Constitution doesn’t come from the American People, but from our institutions – which is not true. Political power does emanate from the People, but it is expressed and safeguarded by our institutions rather than left to the whims of the mob or the arbitrary dictates of a limitless government. The CPUSA stated that they alone have stood for the “American working class” and that they should ride Bernie Sanders’ coattails into power:

The Communist Party USA has a proud tradition of the Popular Front, which united broad sections of the American people from all nations and all political parties. This unity, far from originating in a fretful defense of the establishment, was on the contrary motivated by the overwhelming popular roar of outrage: “Enough is Enough!” The American working class has nothing to gain from an impeachment that in no way advances their interests and indeed is aimed only at shoring up the rapidly decaying political establishment while more and more profits flow up to the oligarchs in Washington and line the pockets of their professional lickspittles. Their professional activists only grease the wheels of official ideology, wheels which the working-class movement consistently reveals to have long since gone off the rails.

Of all the forces facing down Trump, only one can truly be characterized as “popular.” The presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders is not just that of a progressive personality but the backbone of a broad and transformative popular movement led by the working class. Even more important than the advocacy of democratic and progressive policies, which, as we saw in 2008 and 2012, can indeed be praised and championed even by the most rank opportunists, is the extent to which he has thrown in his lot with the American people. Drawing from the American progressive tradition of abolitionism, populism, and socialism, anti-establishment working-class movements, from the Justice Democrats to resurgent union activism to American Descendants of Slavery, allied with Sanders and facing mutual hostilities from the establishment of both parties, are rising from the earth to challenge the dying American liberal institutions. No one understands this better than Sanders himself, whose very campaign slogan is “Not Me, Us!” and who constantly states in public that real changes in history were never won by one individual but rather through concerted popular struggle against the entrenched establishment. No wonder the political elites see “Russian” or “Chinese” influences everywhere, preferring to imagine themselves besieged by foreign powers rather than face down the American working masses who are now rearing their heads for the first time in half a century.

It is and has always been the stated mission of the Communist Party USA, however, to align itself directly and unreservedly with the American working masses, and to aid in the concentration and discipline of the nation’s progressive forces. To this end, the Party should not just campaign for Sanders but must fully immerse itself within the progressive and anti-establishment movement for which Sanders is the spokesman.”

Bernie Sanders18

Did you catch that? To the communists, their comrade Bernie Sanders is the “backbone” of the socialist Trojan Horse in America. Did you also notice that they called socialism an “American progressive tradition”? If socialism was the American tradition, then the Soviet Union, which Bernie Sanders loves, would not have called the United States their “main enemy.” It is only because we have engrafted socialist policies – the ten planks of The Communist Manifesto to be specific – that America has declined in greatness. And Bernie is the aging poster child for this hostile, alien movement.

The CPUSA voiced their support for Bolshevik Bernie in yet another article:

Defeating Trump and the ultra-right in 2020 means moving the electorate to the left. The most effective force doing that is the Sanders campaign, which we should become fully immersed in. Sanders has the most consistent and clear progressive, anti-monopoly program on a multitude of issues, including health care, taxation, workers’ rights, the environment, and foreign policy. That means he is a magnet for progressives working in all fields. He has made great improvements in his approach to the question of racism and has a growing base among young, progressive African Americans. Unlike any other candidate, he also raises the systemic question, defiantly rejecting appeals that he drop use of the word “socialism,” and calls additionally for a “political revolution,” meaning a grass-roots movement needed to enact and enforce his progressive agenda. Sanders is a social democrat and sees his agenda as confined within the capitalist system, but he is encouraging movement that would likely go further.”

Again, please note that the communists see Bernie Sanders’ socialist movement as “the most effective force” working for the transformation of the America into Soviet America – their decades’ old dream. Through lying Marxist slogans about “equality” and “rights,” Sanders has seduced blacks and other minorities into his fold. He is gaining “grass-roots” support by promising “free” stuff to everyone. Of course, anything you get for “free” has to be taken from someone else first. Yet, Sanders has a typically Bolshevik plan to appeal to emotion and get unthinking people to back him– blame the rich for everything and redistribute their wealth to his supporters. Truly, Sanders’ socialist “political revolution” is part and parcel of the broader agenda to plunge America into Marxist thralldom.

Finally, the CPUSA has opined that Sanders and his followers are helping move the country “left,” which will ultimately help them raise the Red flag over America. Writing back in 2017, they praised Bernie for helping spearhead the radicalization of America at a time when, because of Donald Trump and his “fascist” followers, it has never been more needed:

The anti-right fightback has brought into political life broad sections of the U.S. public. Trade union, civil rights, environmental, LGBTQ organizations have gained new strength, members and finances. This is no less true for the left and the Communist Party. In less that 3 months the party has gained more members than in 3 quarters of a typical year.

Indeed a deep and thoroughgoing radicalization process is taking place. . . .

It is a worldwide process driven at lightening speed by the internet, social networks and social media giving rise to revolutions, counter revolts, and unprecedented social change. . . .

It is process that’s given renewed meaning and life by the independent movement to elect our country’s first African American president, Occupy Wall street, the Dreamers, Black Lives Matter, marriage equality, and the political revolution energized by the Sanders bid for the presidency.”

Bernie Sanders’ campaign in 2020 is a fundamental part of the Communist Party’s strategy for the conquest of America. It is the communists who stand as the power behind the hostile movements breaking apart the foundation of our Republic. Look behind the feminist, LGBT, environmentalist, Fabian Socialist, and black revolutionary movements and you find die-hard communists.

Bernie Sanders5

Bolshevik Bernie’s political campaign is full of rabid communists. Earlier this month, Project Veritas released a secret video showing one of Bernie Sanders’ campaign managers, Kyle Jurek, praising the Soviet Union’s murderous GULAG, calling Donald Trump’s supporters “Nazis” who need to be reeducated, and threatening to initiate riots and burn cities if Bolshevik Bernie isn’t elected. I draw just two statements from Jurek. After saying that “gulags were a lot better than what the CIA has told us that they were” he also said, “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn.”

Jurek is not the only violent communist revolutionary in Bernie’s corner, but his comments capture Sanders’ campaign perfectly. Though they might try to disguise it, Sanders and his allies are communists leading their blind followers to the slaughter. If earning the Communist Party USA’s endorsement doesn’t prove this, perhaps nothing will.

I feel to add one more point of interest to my article. Let’s never forget that Bernie is Jewish. I’ve labored hard for the past few years to get people to understand the verifiable historical reality that the overwhelming majority of early communist leaders were Jewish. Jews made up about 85% of the first Soviet government. By the 1930s, over one-third of Jews in the Evil Empire were working for the Soviet state apparatus. The infamous intelligence services, of which the KGB is the most well-known, were created and managed by Jews. The Soviet GULAG was almost exclusively run by Jews.

Lenin, according to the latest research, was part Jewish, married a Jewess, and spoke Yiddish at home. Trotsky was Jewish. Stalin married a Jewess and his top henchmen who planned and carried out the Holodomor and Red Terror were Jews. Karl Marx was a Jew. And many of the international financiers who bankrolled the Soviet rise, such as the Warburgs, were Jews. Entire books have been written documenting the Jewishness of communism, but these few facts and the following quote by Winston Churchill will suffice for our purposes.

In 1920, Winston Churchill wrote the following in a public editorial titled “Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People”:

The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

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, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd) or of Krassin or Radek — all Jews. 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.”

The fact the Bernie Sanders, a Jewish-Marxist, is helping spearhead this hostile, anti-American, anti-Constitution movement in the United States, proves once more that we are dealing with the same enemy we’ve faced for a full century: Communism. If we are not acquainted with the communist conspiracy, and if we are not able to identify those behind it and who have been most instrumental in foisting it on us, we will never save our Republic. We cannot remedy a virus unless it is properly diagnosed. Satanic communism, with all of its occult, Freemasonic, and Zionist allies, is the Red Plague destroying the nations. Ronald Reagan said that communism is “the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind.” He was right. And Bernie Sanders, the Jewish Bolshevik, is the face of this vicious movement in our day.

Despite the nightmarish vision of Bernie Sanders’ name on the ballot in November, I would welcome it for one major reason. If Bernie secures the Democratic Party nomination, it would prove to everyone once and for all that the Democratic Party is a communist front. True, the Communist Party endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016, but she shied away from the name “socialist.” Bernie, however, embraces it. And if the Democrats embrace Bernie, they therefore embrace socialism.

A Bernie-Democrat campaign would rip the mask off of the Democratic Party in the eyes of the whole world. They would not be able to hide from the socialist label. How could they if their chosen candidate is an avowed socialist? Simply, a Bernie nomination would force everyone to choose a side. Will they side with socialism or real Americanism. Socialism is not the American tradition and no true American can ever be a socialist, for socialism is antithetical to every value that made America great.

If, through some hell-inspired catastrophe, Bernie Sanders actually won the Democratic nomination and then swindled his way into the White House, it would also prove beneficial to the nation in this sense: It would focus everyone’s mind once and for all on the real enemy – socialism. People would get a full dose of the tiny spoonful of what they were fed by Obama. They would see, in living color, what socialism does to a nation. They would feel it in their pocket books, in the press, at school, at the grocery store, in social interactions. The nation would finally see what those of us who study the subject see – the Red tentacles wrapping around Lady Liberty. They would then be given the ultimate opportunity to show their true colors and to decide what type of nation they really want – a free Republic or a socialist paradise.

To close, I repeat: I hope Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination. No, I don’t wish him well in November, but I do hope he gives the nation a chance to see that they are besieged by rabid socialists who hate them, who think they’re “Nazis” who need to be reeducated in a GULAG, and who threaten them with violence if they don’t get their way (and slavery if they get it). Know your enemy. Learn his tactics. Understand how he lies, promises the world, and manipulates emotion to gain followers. And if you learn nothing else, learn that communism must die for America to survive!

Russia – Bastion of Traditionalism?

Cultural Marxism is at the root of the chaos we see in the world today. Feminism and LGBT mania, for instance, are communist front movements. The entire spectrum of anti-traditional trends has been promoted by the communist conspiracy since day one. Russia picked up the Marxist-feminist standard with the advent of Bolshevism and has carried it ever since. The purpose of today’s article is to obliterate the prevalent notion that Russia is a family-friendly “bastion of traditionalism” and share the truth that Russia is the true home of modern feminism.

feminism12

I can’t express how dismayed I am every time I see a self-proclaimed traditionalist, or a fellow Christian, refer to Russia in glowing terms. In “trad” social media groups and on traditionalist pages and websites, I routinely encounter people parroting Moscow’s propaganda about how “traditional” Russia is, how “feminine” the women are, how Russia is a “bastion of masculinity,” how there is a Christian “revival” occurring, and how wonderful Vladimir Putin is. Each and every point just mentioned flies in the face of the facts and is an inversion of reality.

I will focus primarily on the first three of the five points listed. Before discussing the first item, perhaps we should address we mean by “traditionalism.” Apart from the obvious definition that traditionalism means upholding tradition, regardless of what that tradition is, the sense in which the word is used today is defined by Google as “the theory that all moral and religious truth comes from divine revelation passed on by tradition, human reason being incapable of attaining it.”

This is an accurate enough definition, though in popular parlance it usually refers to culture and families. Traditionalism is a culture. It is a mentality and philosophy. It is a way of life. Those who live a “traditional” life are those who embrace marriage, create families, are sexually upright, reject degeneracy, and are generally conservative and modest in manners, dress, appearance, and behavior. Traditionalism is heavily linked – I would argue inexorably linked – to Christian values and Christian views on marriage, family, and morality.

With this in mind, is Russia a “bastion of traditionalism”? That is, does Russia, as a society, embrace the traditional or Christian perspective of marriage, family, sexual purity, modesty, and upright behavior? Any honest examination of the reality on the ground – and I have seen that reality firsthand as I lived in Russia for two years and spent my days talking with average folks and meeting inside their homes – must conclude that Russia is not a traditional society.

Let’s analyze a few statistics and points of history. We must remember that Russia was conquered by the alien Bolshevik forces in 1917. The first communist regime was approximately 85% Jewish. That is, it was virulently anti-Christian and devoid of morals. Christian chapels were looted and then literally demolished. Priests were shot. Nuns were raped. And Orthodox cathedrals all across Russia were converted into “Museums of Atheism,” complete with pagan statues and blatantly anti-Christ exhibits. This had the effect of hardening the people and they remain hardhearted towards religion in general to this day, only attending church on holidays to gawk and take pictures at the astonishingly fanatical and theatrical displays of Orthodox priests.

communism759

The rhyming caption reads: “Religion is Poison. Protect Children.” It shows the Christian woman as an old, oppressive hag thwarting the child’s progression and desire to go to school by trying to force an outdated religion on her.

One of the Soviets’ first orders of business was to abolish church marriage and institute in its place civil marriage. In fact, they desired to abolish marriage altogether and began by replacing religious marriages with civil unions and figured the institution would “wither away” of its own accord. Some Communist Party members even performed “red marriages” in mockery of traditional Christian marriage.

The institution of marriage was and is viewed by the Marxists as inherently oppressive. They see marriage as slavery. It was in The Communist Manifesto that these enemies of humanity had threatened the “abolition of the family” throughout the world. In harmony with this evil design, the Reds began destroying marriage in Russia. In 1925, a Soviet publication in boasted:

Already the Soviet power has freed [marriage] from any superfluous shackles, has eliminated from it all religious and ecclesiastical survivals. . . . Marriage in Soviet legislation has ceased to be a prison” (Harold J. Berman, “Soviet Family Law in the Light of Russian History and Marxist Theory,” Yale Law Journal, Vol. 56, Issue 1, 36, 1946).

Indeed, the communists made marriage an irrelevant and unnecessary formality of social life. Not just marriage, but the family as a whole was also targeted. After effecting their coup, the Bolsheviks set to work rewriting the Russian Family Code. Soviet Russia became the first nation to institute no-fault divorce. Divorce became so absurdly easy that you could actually send your spouse a letter in the mail saying “we’re divorced” and it was legally binding. In this sort of culture, marriage lost its sacred stature and divorce became the norm. They legalized abortion-on-demand and even subsidized it. And they did their best to collectivize children and make sure they were raised out of the home and in public schools where they could be indoctrinated in Marxist thought.

Russia Beyond gives us a glimpse into the Soviet attack on traditionalism. In his article “How sexual revolution exploded (and imploded) across 1920s Russia,” Alexander Rodchenko wrote:

““On the abolition of marriage” and “On civil partnership, children and ownership” were among the first decrees of the Soviets in 1918. Church weddings were abolished, civil partnership introduced. Divorce was a matter of choice. Abortions were legalized. All of that implied a total liberation of family and sexual relations. This heralded the beginning of the raunchiest epoch in recent Russian history.

A relaxed attitude to nudism was a vivid sign of the times: on the bank of the Moskva river, near the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour [which Stalin later blew up and replaced with the world’s largest swimming pool], a nude beach formed, the likes of which Western Europe could not have dreamed of at the time. . . .

communism787

Rape by 1920s has become an epidemic. Quite strikingly, sexual violence towards former noble and bourgeois women was for a time even considered “class justice” among the proletarian males. Meanwhile, up to 20 percent of Russia’s male population had carried sexually-transmitted diseases . . . New laws on marriage and the overall atmosphere of breaking with the past encouraged promiscuity and casual approach to sex, unthinkable just years ago.

Soviet society was breeding a dangerous generation of homeless orphans – official reports indicate that, by 1923, half of the children born in Moscow had been conceived out of wedlock, and many of them were abandoned in infancy.”

Yes, the Marxist sexual revolution was in full swing in Russia before most in the West had even contemplated it. It make havoc of families and homes and left, as you have seen and will see, a trail of societal desolation, broken hearts, and destroyed individuals in its wake – just as it was designed to do.

One of the best analyses of the family during this dark era of history is found in Paul Kengor’s superb book Takedown. I excise several choice paragraphs and share them with you:

The disciples of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were committed to a revolution in family life, to a radical rupture in traditional relations between husband and wife and parents and children. Their first and most ardent practitioners, the Bolsheviks, followed the new faith with reckless abandon. . . .

The Russian Orthodox Church’s long-standing prohibition against divorce was lifted by the Bolsheviks, leading to an explosion in divorce rates and utter havoc upon the Russian family. The dramatic combined effect of an immediate full liberalization of divorce laws and institution of “red weddings” became especially acute with the corresponding complete legalization of abortion in 1920, which was an unprecedented action anywhere in the world at the time. With those changes and the squashing of the Russian Orthodox Church and its guidance in marriage and families and children and education and more, Lenin and his allies dealt a severe blow to marital and family life in traditionally religious Russia. Right out of the gate, within the first months and years after they seized power, the Bolsheviks had initiated these jolts to society. . . . .

In the Soviet Union and other subsequent communist countries that followed suit, the effect on marriage and the family was nothing short of catastrophic. The divorce rate skyrocketed to levels unseen inhuman history. In short order, it seemed as though everyone in Moscow had a divorce. One Russian man, painfully recalling his boyhood years from the late 1920s, stated, “The years 1929 to 1932 were the unhappiest period for my family. At that time there were many cases of divorce. Many of our acquaintances got divorced. It was like an epidemic.”

The numbers grew worse decade by decade. As one study reported in the 1960s, “it is not unusual” to meet Soviet men and women who had been married and divorced upwards of fifteen times.

The world certainly took notice of this domestic carnage. It looked to outsiders as if these communists really were looking to abolish marriage. In fact, it is instructive that the influential American magazine the Atlantic published a 1926 piece with the title “The Russian Effort to Abolish Marriage.”

If divorce was an epidemic in the USSR, abortion was a black plague.

The Bolsheviks legalized abortion shortly after they seized power. Like divorce, it was a rare area where the communists allowed for individual freedom. Here they enacted full privatization. So long as the family went up in flames, it seemed, the communists would eagerly allow full and free private ownership of gasoline and matches – with no rationing. You weren’t free to own a farm or factory or business or bank account or go to church or print your own newspaper, but if you wanted a divorce or abortion, the sky was the limit in Bolshevik Russia.

Having overthrown the ship of state and murdered the entire Romanov family in July 1918 – a fitting symbol to the coming war on the family – Vladimir Lenin made good on his June 1913 promise for an “unconditional annulment of all laws against abortions.” By 1920, abortion was fully and legally available and provided free of charge to Russian women. The number of abortions skyrocketed.

communism802

By 1934 Moscow women were having three abortions for every live birth, shocking ratios that American women, in the worst, wildest throes of Roe v. Wade, never approached. The toll was so staggering that an appalled Joseph Stalin, the mass murderer, actually banned abortion in 1936, fearing a vanishing populace. . . .

. . . A more progressive Nikita Khrushchev put things back in order in 1955, reversing Stalin’s abortion ban (and ramping up religious persecution), thus allowing rates to ascend to heights heretofore unwitnessed in human history. One authoritative source from the late 1960s reported, “One can find Soviet women who have had twenty abortions.”

By the 1970s, the Soviet Union was averaging 7 to 8 million abortions per year, annihilating whole future generations of Russian children. (America, with a similar population, averaged nearer 1.5 million abortions per year after Roe was approved in 1973.)” (Paul Kengor, Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage, 32-35).

Let’s build on this information with a few more quotations. The next statements come from the 1926 article Kengor mentioned titled “The Russian Effort to Abolish Marriage.” It informs us:

The question whether marriage as an institution should be abolished is now being debated all over Russia with a violence and depth of passion unknown since the turbulent early days of the Revolution. . . .

One must live in Russia to-day, amid the atmosphere of torment, disgust, and disillusionment that pervades sex relations, the chaos, uncertainty, and tragedy that hover over the Russian family, to understand the reasons for this heated discussion, for these passionate pros and cons.

When the Bolsheviki came into power in 1917 they regarded the family, like every other ‘bourgeois’ institution, with fierce hatred, and set out with a will to destroy it. ‘To clear the family out of the accumulated dust of the ages we had to give it a good shakeup, and we did,’ declared Madame Smidovich, a leading Communist and active participant in the recent discussion. So one of the first decrees of the Soviet Government abolished the term ‘illegitimate children.’ This was done simply by equalizing the legal status of all children, whether born in wedlock or out of it. . . .

At the same time a law was passed which made divorce a matter of a few minutes, to be obtained at the request of either partner in a marriage. Chaos was the result. Men took to changing wives with the same zest which they displayed in the consumption of the recently restored forty-per-cent vodka.

communism799

Street children in Stalin’s USSR

Some men have twenty wives, living a week with one, a month with another,’ asserted an indignant woman delegate during the sessions of the Tzik. ‘They have children with all of them, and these children are thrown on the street for lack of support! (There are three hundred thousand bezprizorni or shelterless children in Russia to-day, who are literally turned out on the streets. They are one of the greatest social dangers of the present time, because they are developing into professional criminals. More than half of them are drug addicts and sex perverts. It is claimed by many Communists that the break-up of the family is responsible for a large percentage of these children.)

The peasant villages have perhaps suffered most from this revolution in sex relations. An epidemic of marriages and divorces broke out in the country districts. Peasants with a respectable married life of forty years and more behind them suddenly decided to leave their wives and remarry. Peasant boys looked upon marriage as an exciting game and changed wives with the change of seasons. It was not an unusual occurrence for a boy of twenty to have had three or four wives, or for a girl of the same age to have had three or four abortions.”

This is only a snippet. I encourage you to read the full article at this link. I urge you to comprehend that communism brought about the destruction of the family in Russia – and that the wreckage can be seen everywhere today. And we need not try to divorce feminism from communism, for it was the Bolshevik revolutionary Inessa Armand (who also had an affair with Lenin) who proudly boasted:

If women’s liberation is unthinkable without communism, then communism is unthinkable without women’s liberation.”

Suffice it to say that Soviet Russia obliterated the family unit and destroyed the institution of marriage. Human life was made cheap and infanticide reached mind-boggling proportions. Marriage lost its significance and divorce became something everyone did. Even homosexuality and transgenderism flourished in the early days of the Soviet Union, with one Russian writer commenting that “members of the gay community were incredibly brave – some wore women’s dresses and corsets, wore their hair long and often looked like real women.”

communism803

Those who think the West introduced feminism and LGBT madness to Russia need to get their story straight – it was the other way around. We are just starting to really deal with those problems that have plagued Russia for over a century. The Bolsheviks deliberately exported these feminist ideas everywhere they could – particularly to the West – with the deliberate intention of weakening us so that we would succumb to their world revolution. It was the Jewish-Marxist radical Willi Munzenberg, of Frankfurt School fame, who is quoted as saying: “We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks.” Sadly, their efforts have nearly succeeded – though thankfully our culture doesn’t yet stink as badly as Russian culture.

This is the awful legacy and crumbling foundation modern Russia is working from. While you can perhaps say today’s Russia is an improvement, the difference is negligible. Despite the carefully-concocted propaganda, Russian society has yet to break free from Soviet norms and is still further advanced down the road of cultural Marxism than the United States. Russian women still abort far more of their babies than their American counterparts and have a lower birth rate. And Russia has a staggering 60% divorce rate – the highest in the world. Russian homes are in tatters and their culture remains hostile to the traditional family. In no sense whatsoever can Russia be considered a “bastion of traditionalism.”

Let’s now move on to the second point. How feminine are Russian women? And do they really reject “Western” feminism as we so frequently hear? Sadly, the answer is no, they’re not particularly feminine and they don’t reject feminism. I’m convinced that most people believe Russian women are feminine because a good many Russian women are exceptionally attractive and, outwardly, dress in skirts and heels and always do up their face and hair. But is this what real femininity is?

Wikipedia defines femininity as “a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles generally associated with women and girls.” According to this definition, you might be able to get away with calling women “feminine” if you really stretch it. But when we couch this in terms of traditionalism, the attempt falls flat. Remember, part of being traditional is being modest and moral. Russian women are not modest. Trust me on this one. Russian women are in the habit of wearing very short skirts, revealing attire, and overdoing it on makeup and accessories. They spend an exorbitant amount of their money on cosmetics, furs, and fancy clothes and shoes.

And what about behavior? Part of being feminine is to act ladylike and fulfill womanly duties like motherhood. 65% of Russian women work – a substantially higher percentage than in the United States. That’s not terribly feminine. Why aren’t these “feminine” women at home with their children? Perhaps one reason they’re in the workplace instead of in the home is that they don’t have a family. Remember, 60% of Russian marriages end in divorce. Also, the birthrate in Russia is pitifully low and even lower than the U.S. birthrate at 1.75 children per family. Again, this behavior is not very feminine.

Furthermore, Russian women are bossy – like Western feminists. They’re often shrill – again, just like Western feminists. Frankly, they push the men around and I’ve seen them be both physically and verbally abusive. They also drink, do drugs, and sleep around at a higher rate than Western women (though, fortunately, alcohol consumption is decreasing). Russia has one of the most rapidly rising AIDS/HIV epidemics in the world due in large part to the rampant sexual immorality. Can women who break the Lord’s law of chastity honestly be considered feminine?

Russia5

Russians in general engage in many behaviors that are repugnant to most Americans, such as public urination and defecation (though San Francisco, Commiefornia apparently sees nothing wrong with this). It’s a real problem. I watched mothers teaching their young boys to pee on the road and in the streets – not in emergency situations, but as a matter of course. I’ve even seen grown women squatting on the side of the road doing their business as people walked by. Fortunately, American women haven’t yet followed that trend.

Prostitution and public indecency are also massive problems in Russia. I’ve never seen so many prostitutes in one place in my life as I did in Russia. You’d see them selling their bodies on the side of the road as their handlers waited in a dirty van behind them. Then, down the road, their mafia oversees sat in cars monitoring police radios so they could warn their girls to run if the cops were on their way. I witnessed this phenomenon on more than one occasion. It’s remarkable how fast some women can run in high heels. I guess, as Vladimir Putin said, Russia has the best hookers.

As for pornography, the “new drug” that is scourging the world, I saw men and women both looking at pornographic magazines and videos while riding on trains or public transport. Billboards could also be a tad too salacious at times and you’d see far too much skin whenever you saw people sunbathing or swimming. If you visited the markets (the same ones where ripped-off American products or cheap knockoffs of everything imaginable proliferated), you had to be careful where you looked.

It’s sad that the sex-industrial complex is so well-established that we have detailed analytics on porn usage by country, region, state, gender, device type, day of the week, search category, and so forth, but we do. According to the data, Russia ranks 12th in global traffic to the world’s largest online porn site and their top search category is “Russian.” And there are a lot of Russian porn stars to search considering that Russia ranks #2 in the world (behind, tragically, our own country) in contributing female “actresses” to pornographic films (five of the top ten porn-star-contributing nations are Russia and four of its “former” Soviet satellites).

Russia9

In short, Russian women are gripped by feminism without even realizing it. No, they don’t consider themselves feminist – but neither do American women if statistics are to be believed. Yet, the feminist culture dominates. It is exhibited in habits and thought patterns. Russian women, like women in the West at the present time, are conditioned to believe that they are “liberated” by being single and sexually debauched, “free” when they murder their offspring, and “fulfilled” when they work. They are not submissive ladies and are in fact more willing to walk all over you, hit you, curse you out, cheat on you, or divorce you than American women are. Simply, don’t buy the hype about the “feminine” Russian woman.

The third and final point on our list I will cover only briefly. There is a myth circulating on the internet, perpetuated largely by Marxist-controlled Hollywood, that Russian men are masculine and strong. Sorry to burst the bubble, but this is laughably untrue. The Hollywood image of a tall, broad, muscular man with a great big beard is the polar opposite of reality in today’s Russia. Most Russian men are short, scrawny, and look as if they’ve been on a concentration camp diet. On a daily basis, I’d shake hands with people I met with on the streets. And on a daily basis Russian men audibly gasped and winced when I shook their hands. For the most part, they had a limp-wristed grip. A handshake really does tell you a lot about a person.

In 2007, I participated in a three-on-three basketball tournament in the small city of Ramenskoye to the south of Moscow. One of the opposing teams had a player from the Russian national basketball team on it. When we played them, I guarded the professional player. I held him scoreless and usually out-rebounded him even though he was one of the few Russians I ever met who was taller than me (I’m almost 6’1” and at the time I had lost thirty pounds and weighed only 160 lbs.). He was frustrated and thought I played too rough. I played against Russians in basketball, soccer, tackle football, and gatorball and in each case Russian men and boys wined about how physical Americans played (I’ve read that pro players from other countries almost universally observe the same thing when they come to America to play). In truth, they were simply unfit wimps. Physically, the average Russian man is a pitiful specimen.

Russia10

Hollywood is not reality

Naturally, there’s more to masculinity and character than physicality. A real man should be chivalrous, gentlemanly, courteous, polite, hard-working, a protector of women, have an upright character, be totally loyal to his wife and marriage covenants, and so forth. When this is applied to Russian men, however, they fail again. Russian men are, as a whole, drunkards. They also use a large amount of drugs.

In the city of Mytishchi where I lived for a time, you’d see drug needles littering the streets and our church building happened to be located in what people called “the drug area” (which was also home to numerous prostitutes and mafia groups). Russian SWAT routinely raided our neighbor’s property looking for drugs. In some cities, it was common to see Russians walking down the road with alcohol in one hand and a cigarette in the other. More times than I can count I’ve seen Russian men passed out in the street, peeing on themselves in public, convulsing from drugs in a corner alley, or dancing lewdly and making fools of themselves in front of everyone. The constant smell of cigarette smoke hanging in the air really completed the atmosphere.

Additionally, Russian men brawl and fight, curse and quarrel. It was routine to see men walking or staggering down the street covered in blood from either fighting or falling down drunk and bashing their face. The number of Russian men with missing or broken teeth was also astonishing – again, largely from brawling or drunkenness. And the number of Russian men who had been to prison – as evidenced by their tattoos – was also staggering.

As noted, Russian men get pushed around by their women (that is, when they’re not committing rape and murder at high rates). And why wouldn’t they? Russia is a feminist country – the first feminist country. It is a bastion of feminism and yet they don’t even realize it. Russian men (and, sadly, many Western men) see their raucous and dangerous behavior as some sort of masculinity. But it’s not real masculinity; it’s juvenile and crass. Drunkenness, fighting, prolific swearing (when I learned the various forms of the f-word in Russian, I was shocked at how commonplace their usage was), sexual unchastity, violent criminality, and physical unfitness do not a masculine nation make.

When you really look at the whole picture, Russia is not the “bastion of traditionalism” that propagandists and those who have been taken in by propaganda claim. I wish Russia was a bastion of Faith, Families, and Freedom. This is my wish for my own country and for every nation on earth. I yearn for the day when evil will be swept away, when the communist cancer will be eradicated, when feminism will die its natural death, when corruption and war are terminated, when sanity will prevail once more, when the Gospel of Jesus Christ sinks deep into every heart, and when Freedom will prevail.

Sadly, we are not there yet and won’t be until the Lord returns in His glory. Until then, Russia stands as an enemy to the human race. The notion that “communism is dead” and “the USSR collapsed” is one of the most devastatingly effective ruses ever pulled on the world. The reality is that the Soviets faked their demise and communism never died. Indeed, the communist conspiracy is more powerful and prevalent than ever before. Russia, China, and their allies are in a strategically advantageous position over the West and the final clash draws closer despite Washington’s boast of strength and stability. You will live to see Russia and China strike the United States and initiate world war. Mark my words.

One final word is in order. You have doubtless noted the contempt in my tone. Let me make it clear that my contempt is for the Russian government and for the communist regime that so thoroughly demoralized and beat down the Russian people. I don’t hate the Russian people – I pity them. They are a product of communism – victims of the most wicked conspiracy ever created. I pity them and pray for them.

Here is the reality: Russia today is the America of tomorrow unless we root out the communist cancer among us. Russia is not following the West, as I so often hear, but we are following them – and to our detriment. From no-fault-divorce to civil marriages to abortion-on-demand to massive drunkenness to feminist women and emasculated men, Russia set the example and blazed the trail. And yet, still, there remain some fantastic individuals, including the most humble man I’ve ever met in my life – a spiritual giant from Ukraine who settled in Moscow who call Russia home.

I mentioned that I lived in Russia for two years. I was there as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – one of the few foreign proselytizing churches that hasn’t been banned and kicked out by Putin’s regime (though Putin recently signed laws that severely restrict our ability to do the Lord’s work). I walked the streets speaking with Russians about their core beliefs, about their aspirations, and about their families. I met with them in their homes and churches. I visited the cities and villages. These people told me their life stories. They shared their beliefs about God. And some of them became lasting friends. I was even, for a short while after I returned home, engaged to a Russian gal.

My point is that I don’t hate the Russians. I love them and spent many nights on my knees praying for them. I do, however, hate communism. I hate the Russian regime that rules in Moscow and despise the KGB conspirator named Vladimir Putin who rules in the Kremlin and pretends he’s a Christian and traditionalist, despite his well-publicized affairs and broken marriage, so that the gullible will sympathize with and support Russia as some sort of world “savior.” Don’t fall for it.

One day, I firmly believe, though it will probably come only after a day of fire and cataclysm, Russia will throw off her shackles and become the Christian nation too many people wrongly believe she is now. The blood of Israel runs in their veins, as it does in the veins of most Caucasian peoples, and they have a glorious future. They will be gathered in by the Lord, but the time is not yet. At present, a communist pseudo-tsar rules in Moscow. Russia’s unparalleled stockpile of nuclear and biological weapons stands ready to be used to bring about the one-world order and one-world religion dreamed of by the global Elite. If we continue to allow the cultural Marxism imported into our nation by the Bolsheviks to infect us, we will be weak enough for the Elite to carry out their pre-planned strike.

It was this article’s purpose to wave the smelling salts under your nose to awaken you from the mental fantasy that Russia is a “bastion of traditionalism” and the hope of the world. Russia is, in truth, the home of feminism and the world leader in cultural degradation. The West is the way it is because we have followed Russia’s example. If we seek to reverse the trends, we need to stop listening to Russian propaganda and those who buy into it and instead cling to the traditions, values, and institutions that made Western Christian civilization great.

communism247

As Americans, we must rush forward to defend our Faith, Families, and Freedom against Marxist machinations whether promoted by Washington, Moscow, Tel Aviv, London, or Beijing. Our only hope is in turning to the Lord Jesus Christ and in rejecting all anti-Christ philosophies. If we seek traditionalism, we must look for it here at home – not on the Red steppes of Russia.

Private Property Essential to Liberty

There can be no Liberty without the right to own and manage private property. Private property is essential to Liberty. It is indispensable to individuality and fundamental to life itself. Where there is no right to private property, there is no Freedom and self-will. In order to maintain our American Republic in Liberty, we must reclaim and secure our cardinal right to own and oversee our own private property.

tyranny32

The great political scientist Frederic Bastiat, in his classic book The Law, defined property this way. Note how it encompasses much more than mere objects and tangible possessions, but is wrapped up in the very concept of Liberty:

We hold from God the gift which includes all others. This gift is life — physical, intellectual, and moral life.

But life cannot maintain itself alone. The Creator of life has entrusted us with the responsibility of preserving, developing, and perfecting it. In order that we may accomplish this, He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By the application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. This process is necessary in order that life may run its appointed course.

Life, faculties, production — in other words, individuality, liberty, property — this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”

These words are found at the very beginning of Bastiat’s The Law. They are at the beginning because Bastiat understood that there can be no comprehension of Liberty without a correct understanding, first, of the importance of private property and individual stewardship.

Property is the root of Liberty. It is the foundation of free will. It is the essence of personhood. In a very real sense, there is no life – at least, no life that satisfies and uplifts – without property. What is our life without our God-given right to own and manage private property?

property5

Our Eternal Father created us, His children, and sent us to earth to progress and grow. But how can we accomplish this mission of growth and progression unless we have a personal stewardship to manage, direct, and be personally accountable for? How can we have a stewardship without private property to superintend? And how can we claim we have Freedom if we do not enjoy property and, thereby the chance to use our faculties in administering a stewardship of our own?

Protecting property – that is, life and and the essence of Liberty – is the reason governments exist. The Declaration of Independence states that “to secure [our] rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” The three rights specifically mentioned, though of course there are many more, are the rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Thomas Jefferson adapted his phraseology from the common political thought of the time regarding the three cardinal rights of man – life, Liberty, and property. Some have erroneously charged Jefferson with plagiarism, but the fact is that the notion of “life, Liberty, and property” was widespread. For instance, the Virginia Declaration of Rights, ratified on June 12, 1776, contained this paragraph:

That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety.”

Perhaps more famously, the British philosopher John Locke, whom Jefferson highly regarded, had written in his Second Treatise on Government that man has a right “to preserve his property, that is, his life, liberty and estate.” Locke elaborated on the idea of property in these terms:

[E]very man has a property in his own person: this no body has any right to but himself. The labour of his body, and the work of his hands, we may say, are properly his. Whatsoever then he removes out of the state that nature hath provided, and left it in, he hath mixed his labour with, and joined to it something that is his own, and thereby makes it his property. It being by him removed from the common state nature hath placed it in, it hath by this labour something annexed to it, that excludes the common right of other men: for this labour being the unquestionable property of the labourer, no man but he can have a right to what that is once joined to, at least where there is enough, and as good, left in common for others. . . .

property9

. . . God, when he gave the world in common to all mankind, commanded man also to labour, and the penury of his condition required it of him. God and his reason commanded him to subdue the earth, i.e. improve it for the benefit of life, and therein lay out something upon it that was his own, his labour. He that in obedience to this command of God, subdued, tilled and sowed any part of it, thereby annexed to it something that was his property, which another had no title to, nor could without injury take from him. . . .

Thus labour, in the beginning, gave a right of property, wherever any one was pleased to employ it upon what was common. . . .

The reason why men enter into society, is the preservation of their property; and the end why they chuse and authorize a legislative, is, that there may be laws made, and rules set, as guards and fences to the properties of all the members of the society.”

Other thinkers besides Locke, including the most prominent American Founding Fathers, expressed similar ideas and knew the value of private property rights. They understood that every individual “has a property in his own person” – that is, his life – and that by the labor of his hands he acquires and exercises a stewardship over other property, for which he is accountable. This individual stewardship and accountability over property and life is the fundamental essence of what we call Liberty.

When seen in the light of Bastiat’s explanation of property, we better understand Jefferson’s phrase “pursuit of Happiness.” It is impossible for man to be happy without property. Or, in other words, it is impossible for man pursue a course that leads to happiness without a stewardship, the control of which is authentic life and true Liberty.

We turn again to Frederic Bastiat. He contemplated the purpose of law, government, and society. As before, please note how property correlates to Liberty:

What, then, is law? It is the collective organization of the individual right to lawful defense.

Each of us has a natural right — from God — to defend his person, his liberty, and his property. These are the three basic requirements of life, and the preservation of any one of them is completely dependent upon the preservation of the other two. For what are our faculties but the extension of our individuality? And what is property but an extension of our faculties? If every person has the right to defend even by force — his person, his liberty, and his property, then it follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to protect these rights constantly. Thus the principle of collective right — its reason for existing, its lawfulness — is based on individual right. And the common force that protects this collective right cannot logically have any other purpose or any other mission than that for which it acts as a substitute. Thus, since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person, liberty, or property of another individual, then the common force — for the same reason — cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, liberty, or property of individuals or groups.”

The fundamental basis of civil society is property! Civilization exists to protect individual rights – the most fundamental being life and the stewardship over property that gives that life meaning.

property10

The Founding Fathers knew how important property was. The Bill of Rights was written to protect, among other things, property. The Fifth Amendment, for instance, declared that no citizen shall “be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” These lines in truth encompass the whole of the Constitution and all of our rights. For example, gun confiscation not only violates the Second Amendment, it violates the Fifth by depriving an individual, without due process in a court of law, of his property (i.e. his weapon), his Liberty (i.e. his right to defend himself), and sets him up to be deprived of his life.

The Father of the Constitution, James Madison, concurred with Bastiat and Locke. He gave an eloquent description of property and the purpose of government. Madison stated:

This term [i.e. property] in its particular application means “that dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world, in exclusion of every other individual.”

In its larger and juster meaning, it embraces every thing to which a man may attach a value and have a right; and which leaves to every one else the like advantage.

In the former sense, a man’s land, or merchandize, or money is called his property.

In the latter sense, a man has a property in his opinions and the free communication of them.

He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them.

He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person.

He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them.

In a word, as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights.

Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions. . . .

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own. . . .

. . . Conscience is the most sacred of all property; other property depending in part on positive law, the exercise of that, being a natural and unalienable right. . . .

That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest. . . .

That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where arbitrary restrictions, exemptions, and monopolies deny to part of its citizens that free use of their faculties, and free choice of their occupations, which not only constitute their property in the general sense of the word; but are the means of acquiring property strictly so called. . . .

government17

A just security to property is not afforded by that government, under which unequal taxes oppress one species of property and reward another species: where arbitrary taxes invade the domestic sanctuaries of the rich, and excessive taxes grind the faces of the poor. . . .

If there be a government then which prides itself in maintaining the inviolability of property; which provides that none shall be taken directly even for public use without indemnification to the owner, and yet directly violates the property which individuals have in their opinions, their religion, their persons, and their faculties; nay more, which indirectly violates their property, in their actual possessions, in the labor that acquires their daily subsistence, and in the hallowed remnant of time which ought to relieve their fatigues and soothe their cares, the influence will have been anticipated, that such a government is not a pattern for the United States.

If the United States mean to obtain or deserve the full praise due to wise and just governments, they will equally respect the rights of property, and the property in rights” (James Madison, March 29, 1792).

There is much to digest and learn from this description, but the takeaways are these: 1) That man has an inherent right to property, which includes not only his tangible goods like his house and land, but his opinions, conscience, and life; and 2) that government exists to preserve property and can only be considered “wise and just” when it secures this right to each individual.

Like his fellow Founders, John Adams was fierce on the point of private property. He said property is sacred and must be protected as equally as the laws of God Almighty. He wrote:

Property is surely a right of mankind as really as liberty . . . The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If “Thou shalt not covet,” and “Thou shalt not steal,” were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free. (John Adams, “A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America,” 1787).

Another time, John Adams simply stated: “Property must be secured, or liberty cannot exist” (John Adams, “Discourses on Davila,” Chapter XIII).

Samuel Adams was every bit as forceful. To him, forfeiting one’s right of private property is to make oneself a slave. He affirmed:

In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave” (Samuel Adams, “The Rights of the Colonists,” November 20, 1772).

We could continue citing quotes from wise men on the necessity of property and the correlation between property and Liberty, but the point has already been made. Let’s now discuss the opponents of Liberty. The greatest enemies of Freedom are those which seek to abolish private property and, with it, the meaning of life and the essence of Liberty. I speak of the communists specifically and of collectivists in general.

communism775

The Communist Manifesto declares that “the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.” Taking what we know about the relationship of Liberty and property, we can rewrite the communist goal in these words: Abolition of individual Liberty.

The communist desire to abolish Freedom is openly admitted in the Manifesto. Marx noted that capitalists complained that the communists’ planned destruction of capital, that is, wealth, industry, and property, would mean the destruction of Liberty as well. In response, the Manifesto, nonchalantly states: “And the abolition of this state of things is called by the bourgeois, abolition of individuality and freedom! And rightly so. The abolition of bourgeois individuality, bourgeois independence, and bourgeois freedom is undoubtedly aimed at.”

You better believe that today’s conspirators – the Satanic communists who lord over us – still desire to destroy Freedom by abolishing private property. They have successfully succeeded in curtailing property rights throughout most of the world, including nearly everywhere in socialist Europe. They are well on their way to undermining our property rights here in the United States, too.

There are many tactics which the enemy uses to subvert our property rights. James Madison mentioned several. I name only three. First, the big-government oligarchs spend so much money and rack up so much debt that an increase in taxes is necessary to pay for it. This unnecessary and exorbitant taxation is nothing but theft of our personal property – property that belongs rightfully to us and which is earned through our own hard labor. And disproportionate and unequal taxation – which people who advocate higher taxes on the rich are really calling for – is more egregious still, constituting little more than classic wealth redistribution. Inflation, which we fork out money to cover at the grocery store and elsewhere very day, is another hidden tax that also robs us of the fruit of our labor. Minimum wage laws also destroy Liberty and property by stripping from employers the right to decide how to dispense their own property and how to run their own businesses. Socialized medicine – welfare statism – is yet another way government expands, centralizes power, and destroys our wealth (i.e. property) taxation.

Second, our property rights are increasingly curtailed by bureaucratic regulations. Government regulations now number in the hundreds of thousands. These arbitrary and unconstitutional regulations dictate how we can and cannot use our land, how we can and cannot use technology, how we can and cannot run our businesses, who we can and cannot hire, and so forth. Regulations restrict our Freedom to use our property according to the dictates of our conscience and in the pursuit of our personal happiness. It therefore inhibits our full exercise of stewardship – and without stewardship and accountability over property there is no Liberty.

communism774

Third, the outright theft of property under spurious justifications increasing at an alarming rate. Americans now lose more property every year to police than to robbers. Under tyrannical asset forfeiture laws, police rob Americans of their property and livelihoods. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is another arm of government that has been busy stealing private land coast to coast. Indeed, government agencies of all types have been confiscating hundreds of thousands of acres of land, in Bolshevik fashion, from innocent Americans – and they’ve been caught on tape bragging and laughing about it! Karl Marx would be proud of what the U.S. government has been turned into by Marxist moles.

No matter how the communists and their abettors do it, the destruction or theft of private property is nothing more nor less than the destruction and theft of Freedom. Remember, even Marx himself acknowledged that the goal is “the abolition of bourgeois individuality, bourgeois independence, and bourgeois freedom.” Please understand that the enemy doesn’t need to arrest you and put you in a cage to take your Freedom. They can do it just as easily by confiscating your property through taxers or by restricting your ability to control your property via bureaucratic regulations.

There can be no real Liberty without private property. There can be little value in life devoid of individual stewardship – and stewardship is embodied in one’s control of private property. In order to be free agents and fully accountable for our individual actions, we must have the right to acquire and control private property. Without this right, no other right really matters. Without private property, there is no Liberty. Without private property, individuality is a hollow talking point. Without private property, we are a collective mass of equally miserable beings. And without the right of private property, there is no Liberty.

America115

I urge you to rise in opposition to the enemies of private property – the communists and big-government collectivists. I encourage you to never relinquish your private property willing, for in so doing you become a slave. And I implore you to always remember that property and Liberty are inseparably linked and that the latter cannot exist without the former. Keep ever in mind the truth that our rightful stewardship over private property is the essence of our Liberty and the essence of our success as Americans. God help America reclaim her sacred rights and her precious Freedom!

Red Flags Over America

This past September and October, at least three major American cities hoisted the communist Chinese flag to commemorate the founding of the Red regime in Beijing seventy years ago. Between September 27 and October 1, Philadelphia, Boston, and San Francisco held ceremonies in honor of the mass-murdering Chinese communists. As part of their celebrations, they flew the Red flag flown in China by the communist state. My short article today is to inform you of these treasonous acts and to warn the perpetrators that some of us won’t tolerate this flagrant abuse and mockery much longer.

communism626

When I read the news reports detailing these despicable pro-communist events in American cities, two thoughts instantly leaped to mind. First, I immediately felt infuriated and considered this disgusting display high treason. I felt, and still feel, that the perpetrators should be formally dealt with as traitors – and all that that implies. Second, the closing lyrics of a Saga cover song, “The Snow Fell,” came to mind. The song talks about World War II, depicts Stalin and his Soviet cohorts as the Beast from John’s Apocalypse, and laments the defeat of the only real anti-communist force in the war – Hitler’s Third Reich. The final lyrics of the concluding verse cry out: “Well yet still it sickens my heart to see the picture of the red flag in Berlin.”

We’ve all seen the infamous picture of the Soviet soldier hanging the repugnant hammer and sickle flag over the Berlin Reichstag in 1945. It was symbolic of the communist beast’s conquest of yet another hapless nation on its long march to global domination. It was a loathsome display in 1945 and the picture retains its repugnance today. The symbolic parallels between 1945 occupied Berlin and 2019 Philadelphia, Boston, and San Francisco are too striking to be missed.

What does it mean to have a foreign flag fly over your city or nation? In all of history, when a foreign flag flew over your city, you knew you had been conquered and that you now lived under alien rule. It was the same in 1945 when the Soviet hordes ravaged Germany and it is the same today. The only possible message that can be understood from Philadelphia, Boston, and San Francisco flying the Chinese flag is that these cities are now under hostile foreign domination or are in the process of being brought under Chinese communist control.

Think of the magnitude of this crime and what it says about us that we would allow this to happen. Boston is, in one sense, the home of America’s Liberty movement. It was the Boston-based Sons of Liberty who most fiercely challenged the British oppressors. The events in and surrounding Boston provided the catalyst for America’s War for Independence. Boston was also the center point for patriots like John and Samuel Adams and my own ancestor Caleb Strong. No less important, Philadelphia was the birth place of both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Philadelphia’s streets were graced with the presence of some of the greatest men America has ever produced – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, and so forth.

communism628

It is a major psychological and propaganda coup for the Chinese communists to have the iconic cities of Boston and Philadelphia hoist their blood-stained flag, even for one day. China’s state-run press outlet Xinhua noted the event:

Philadelphia, the largest city in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, on Tuesday honored the city’s Chinese American community on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). . . .

A flag-raising ceremony was held Tuesday morning at the city hall to observe the 70th anniversary of the PRC founding. . . .

The mayor also announced Tuesday was a day to observe “The People’s Republic of China Flag-raising Day” in Philadelphia.”

In a separate release, Xinhau applauded Philadelphia’s close ties with the communist regime:

Under the theme of “Friendship, Cooperation and Win-win,” the day featured various cultural programs, including a traditional Chinese dance and a concert by the Philadelphia Orchestra, the first U.S. orchestra to make a China tour since the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

The event was co-sponsored by the Chinese Consulate General in New York, the City of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Chinese Consul General in New York Huang Ping said it is crucial that China and the United States work together to advance ties and deepen cooperation. . . .

Calling the China Day celebration a landmark event, Mohan Seshadri, executive director of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs in Pennsylvania, told Xinhua that the activity could facilitate people-to-people understanding between the two countries. . . .

A flag-raising ceremony was held Tuesday morning at city hall to observe the 70th anniversary of the PRC founding that fell on Tuesday, and to salute the many contributions the Chinese American community have made to the city.

Philadelphia’s relations with China dated back several decades when it established a sister city tie with the coastal city of Tianjin, becoming one of the first U.S. cities to initiate such a relationship with a Chinese city in December 1979 after the two countries established diplomatic ties the same year.”

Xinhua also named San Francisco, which held its own anti-American flag-raising ceremony in September, a sister city with Shanghai. Read the statement here.

The Philadelphia mayor who backed the above-mentioned event, the Democrat Jim Kenney, claimed that raising the communist flag over his city was “not a sign of support for any specific government, political party, or movement.” Rather, he claimed, it was a show of diversity. How can anyone believe this lie? It’s not possible to raise the flag of a foreign government over your city hall building and not imply support for either their government or ideology. This is especially true when the flag you’re raising is the Red flag of a communist regime that is your own nation’s avowed enemy.

communism560

Furthermore, at a time when Hong Kong pro-Liberty advocates are fighting the oppressive Chinese regime for their rights, it is particularly absurd to claim raising the Chinese flag is not a political statement. Because of the U.S. government’s position opposing China’s tyranny in Hong Kong, it is highly improper and harmful for American leaders to show solidarity with Beijing. It appears even more deliberately political considering President Trump’s official support of the people in Hong Kong. The truth, of course, is that the closet socialists and communists who rule in places like Philadelphia, Boston, and San Francisco have thrown their lot in with the communist world. They share the Red ideology and do everything they can to thumb their nose at the United States. They want nothing more than to transform us into another Soviet-style state.

Let me now give you a snapshot of the Red flag’s history. From it’s origin, the Red flag has symbolized revolution and rebellion. The Illuminati-Jacobins flew the Red flag over Paris during the French Revolution. Marxists chose the Red flag as their standard. And, of course, Soviet Russia and Red China have both flown the Red flag with various symbols on them. The Red flag is an unflinching symbol of the communist plot against mankind and it’s gut-wrenching to see it wave over American cities.

The association of the Red flag with sedition and rebellion was once very universally acknowledged. Nearly every state in the United States in fact outlawed the flying of the Red flag until the rogue Supreme Court overruled them (though some states still retain the laws on the books). My state of Idaho, for instance, declared in 1919: “The display of any red flag or emblem indicating disloyalty to the Government of the United States or a belief in anarchy unlawful” (Investigation of Communist Propaganda, U.S. Government, 446). Violation of this law could land you in jail for one to ten years. As noted, nearly all states had similar laws on the books.

In 2019, however, major American cities disregard the wisdom of the past and are openly hoisting the Red flag while celebrating the most murderous regime in world history. Sure, some people protest, but the treason continues regardless. Some people write to people like Mayor Jim Kenney and say, “Raising this flag, a symbol of the birth of the Chinese Communist Party on October 1, 1949 is only celebrating tyranny, repression, and death,” yet the flag still flies. These traitors openly flout our laws and heritage and we as a People do absolutely nothing about it. We are far too tolerant as a society. Indeed, our tolerance is strangling us.

communism621

Our love of diversity” is also killing us. When diversity happens naturally, there’s no problem with it. But the type of “diversity” we have today has been forced upon us with the intent of dividing us rather than unifying us. The communists knew they could not conquer a unified population, so they force fed us racial mixing, LGBT mania, anathema religious traditions, flooded us with immigrants who don’t share our heritage or principles, and so forth. I also fail to see how waving the communist flag is a show of “diversity.”

As noted, the Chinese flag is soaked in blood. Red China has slaughtered more human beings than any regime on earth, surpassing even the Soviet Union’s mammoth death toll. Somewhere between 60 and 100 million Chinese were killed by Mao Tse-tung and his Red successors. Millions of Chinese even to this day languish in labor and reeducation camps and the entire population is tyrannized by the Chinese Communist Party. The People’s Republic of China has a violent, aggressive history oppressing its people, invading its neighbors, and subverting nations around the globe. For elected American representatives to hoist their flag over our cities is nothing short of treason in my eyes.

The more I read and write on this topic, the angrier I feel. Yet, this is only the latest affront in the ongoing communist war against our Republic. They’re leading the chief efforts to destroy our Faith, Families, and Freedom. Our country is being sold piece by piece to China and the communist world. Consistently now over one-third of American poll-takers voice support for socialism. Masked Antifa communist thugs stalk our streets harassing and assaulting our countrymen. Democratic candidates now openly threaten us with the destruction of our Freedom and boast about their socialist views. Anti-Defamation League (ADL) terrorists are screeching for the destruction of our free speech and for maniacal censorship of the internet. And yet, far from organizing to combat this plague of anti-Americanism, our cities are flying the Red Chinese flag!

Ladies and gentlemen, despite some people saying “all is well,” all is not well. We’re in a dire situation. Despite winning some battles, we’re losing the war. The communist tide is rising. The Red menace is ascending to power. Our cities are falling one by one to Chinese, Russian, and Israeli influence. And most disturbing of all is that the American People do nothing. Some of us speak out. Some folks protest. Some media platforms devote themselves to combating conspiracy. Yet, because the majority are silent, the war is being lost.

silence2

I want to remind everyone that silence is complicity. There is no neutrality in spiritual and cultural warfare. Feigning neutrality is actually choosing the enemy’s side. You’re either for Americanism or for communism. When you sit by silently as American “leaders” raise hostile enemy flags over our cities, you’ve chosen your side. Do the right thing and publicly denounce this insanity. Denounce the traitors. Take a stand and let your voice be heard.

Years ago, Ronald Reagan warned us that the road to war lies in appeasement to evil and in letting our enemies think that people like Democrat Jim Kenney speak for the rest of us. He rightly stated:

If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand – the ultimatum. And what then – when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we’re retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he’d rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us.

You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery” (Ronald Reagan, “A Time for Choosing,” October 27, 1964).

Philadelphia, Boston, and San Francisco might raise the communist Red flag over their degraded cities, but there are millions of real Americans who know that this is baldfaced treason and who find it absolutely repugnant. There are millions of us in heartland America who hate communism and will die before watching the Red flag ascend the national flag pole. We will not acquiesce to the communist demands. We will not live on our knees or kowtow to Beijing. We will not blow kisses to the Kremlin.

tyranny2

We, the died-in-the-wool American patriots, the children of the Sons of Liberty, will maintain our religion, our Constitution, and our sacred rights. We will defend our beautiful flag and the values and institutions it represents. Though misguided people do not believe it, a flag stands for something. It makes a clear statement. The Chinese communist flag stands for murder, oppression, tyranny, aggression, and godless hatred whereas the U.S. flag stands for republicanism, Freedom, and Christian values. Because there are millions of us who reject and oppose the turncoats like Jim Kenney who infest our country and find their obeisance to foreign communists revolting, war will be the only way China, Russia, and their global cabal against humanity can hope defeat us. When that dreadful day comes, there will be no hole so deep that the Jim Kenneys will be able to hide. Justice will be dealt, treason will be crushed, and the Republic will be restored.

Things They Don’t Allow You To Say

I write this article from the perspective of one who has spent years publishing and debating his thoughts in books, articles, formal political documents, online forums, and at a handful of public speaking events alongside notable figures like G. Edward Griffin, Cliven Bundy, and Sheriff Richard Mack. I’ve spent time as an admin for the Independent American Party’s and Awaken to our Awful Situation’s Facebook pages, as well as the sole admin for seven of my own pages and groups. On my pages alone, I’ve been banned ten times for a total of eight months in Facebook jail. I’ve had a number of posts deleted and others labeled as “fake news” (fact-checked, naturally, by the George Soros-funded Snopes), and have been periodically shadow-banned. Through it all, I’ve experienced enough censorship and opposition to be able to formulate a solid view of what they don’t allow you to say.

communism392

First, who is the they I’m referring to? You can take your pick – the Illuminati, Freemasons, Zionists, Jesuits, globalists, Fabian Socialists, Black Nobility, Bilderbergers, the Committee of 300, the Establishment, the Deep State, the Elite, the Swamp, the powers-that-be, etc. The major thing all these groups have in common is their distinctly communist ideology. I therefore refer to the conspirators against mankind collectively as Marxists or communists, though terms like “globalists” or “the Establishment” are perfectly legitimate. Suffice it to say that the powers-that-be run a global campaign of censorship and intimidation against anyone, anywhere who speaks truth, exposes their lies, corrects their sanitized historical record, and advocates traditional or Christian principles. My goal today is to articulate several items that will get you in hot water with the Marxist censors and to encourage you to tell the truth anyway regardless of the consequences.

Many of the points I’ll mention below are inexorably connected with international Jewry – a taboo topic in and of itself. The black mark attached to anyone who utters the word “Jewry” brings to mind the old idea that “to know who rules over you, learn who you’re not allowed to criticize.” I’ve consistently opposed the notion that the conspiracy is Jewish; it is, rather, Satanic and enlists people of all races, religions, and backgrounds. However, I have been equally vocal about the documentable fact that a disproportionately high number of Jews inhabit top positions within the global conspiracy apparatus. From George Soros to Henry Kissinger, from the Rothschilds to Jeff Bezos, from Mark Zuckerberg to Bob Iger, from Dianne Feinstein to Sheldon Adelson, and from Elena Kagan to Richard Haass, there’s a Jewish radical – and Jewish money and media support – intimately involved in nearly every phase of our collective enslavement.

So ubiquitous is Jewish involvement in the conspiracy that any mention of Jewish involvement can get you figuratively, or in some infamous cases literally, hauled before the Inquisition. To sidestep the necessity of writing the buzzword “Jew,” which can get you quickly censored on Jewish-owned media platforms (which is essentially all of them), people have taken to adding ellipses to words, such as to the word (((they))). There’s a history behind this practice which I leave you to search independently. The point is that one of the myriad of items they don’t allow you to say is that Jews, or the state of Israel, are involved with the conspiracy.

The conspiracy also does not allow you to state with impunity the truth that communism – the foulest and most murderous ideology in history is a de facto Jewish movement. Karl Marx was a Jew from a long line of rabbis, though he was raised Christian and eventually defected to Satanism. His communist successors, Lenin, Trotsky, Zinoviev, and many more, were ethnic Jews as well. Vladimir Putin, of all people, admitted in a speech to a Jewish audience that some 85% of the first Bolshevik regime were Jewish. This holds true with the estimates of the best Sovietologists. But they do not want you to know that in modern times communism was invented and pushed forward primarily by Jews, that Jews were and are used as foot soldiers in the communist world revolution, that Jews like Genrikh Yagoda and Stalin’s brother-in-law Lazar Kaganovich engineered the Holodomor famine which claimed the lives of at least 10 million Ukrainians, that the work of torture and murder carried out by the Soviets was directed by Jewish hands, that Jews almost exclusively operated the brutal Soviet GULAG where millions rotted in wretched enslavement or perished, and that the Communist International (Comintern) frequently chose Jewish communists to head up their subversive operations throughout the world as in Spain, Germany, Hungary, and Mexico. Though these are historical facts, they cannot allow you to mention them without punishment.

They don’t allow you to say that 9/11 was an inside job without smearing, silencing, and persecuting you. The horrible September 11th attacks were indeed terrorist attacks, but the real terrorists were not nineteen Arab hijackers using box-cutters, shoddy piloting skills, and unprecedented good “luck.” Though I believe we might not ever be able to specifically name the real perpetrators, it is abundantly clear that the “official” story is riddled with massive holes and that Osama bin Laden did not run this sophisticated attack from a cave in Afghanistan. There’s actually no credible evidence that bin Laden had any part in the attacks. He even denied his involvement in an interview after the attacks, explaining the truth that the Qur’an forbids the murder of innocents. Certainly the FBI didn’t think he was involved and never formally charged bin Laden with a crime. If the evidence was as overwhelming as the controlled media would have you believe, why did our government never formally charge the alleged mastermind of the most murderous attack ever perpetrated on American soil?

The smoking gun of all smoking guns proving that 9/11 was a much larger and more sophisticated operation was WTC 7 which was not hit by a plane yet dissolved into powder as it fell neatly and at free-fall speed into its own footprint. See Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s phenomenal film “9/11: Explosive Evidence – The Experts Speak Out” for an overview of the facts. There are far too many firsthand accounts – some of which are on video – of explosions going off before, simultaneous with, and after the planes hit the towers to believe that the collapse of the Twin Towers was the result of localized office fires caused by the planes. Brigham Young University-Provo Professor Steven E. Jones’s research conclusively demonstrated the existence of thermite or thermate on the scene – that is, the existence of military grade explosives. For his research, Dr. Jones was labeled an “anti-Semite” and forced into retirement. Obviously, they don’t allow you to conduct credible, professional research into the real goings-on of 9/11.

Several powers such as our own corrupt intelligence services, Russia, and Israel, had the capability and motive to have pulled off the dastardly September 11th attacks. Russia has been the major beneficiary of our disastrous War on Terror and KGB dictator Vladimir Putin was the first head of state to call and encourage President Bush in his endeavor. Remember that the communists are the founders of modern international terrorism, that most modern terrorists were trained by Russian intelligence, and that these KGB-linked terrorists have carried out attacks on every continent – including attacks in the United States in the past. This fits their playbook perfectly. They cannot be ruled out as having at least some involvement.

911#1

The Israelis also cannot be ruled out. Recall that five Israelistwo of which were confirmed by the FBI to be Mossad agents – were arrested on 9/11 (search “dancing Israelis”) for celebrating as they filmed the planes hitting the WTC (which “event” they later admitted on Israeli TV they had been sent to “document”). At the same time, the U.S. government had been investigating a massive Israeli spy ring operating on our soil. 140 Israeli spies – some of which had explosives training or were active military – had been apprehended in the months leading up to 9/11. Immediately after the attacks, 60 additional Israelis with connections to Israeli intelligence were arrested and questioned. As a bare minimum, Israeli intelligence had intimate foreknowledge of the attacks and must be implicated. With a friend like Israel, who needs enemies? 

Finally, double agents or corrupt individuals within our own intelligence apparatus – of which there is no shortage, especially of the turncoat communist variety – must all be suspect. For instance, it would have been impossible for a foreign power to have stood down or diverted our military, such as happened. That had to have been an in-house order. At the very least, our own people – traitors posing as loyal intelligence operatives in the CIA or as innocent members of our government – had a part in the attacks. Certainly our media and key government insiders played a central role in the post-attack cover up, which implies complicity.

And don’t forget the extensive international insider trading happening at the time of the attack or the fact that several prominent people, including the mayor of San Francisco, have admitted they were warned not to fly that day. Whoever precisely is to blame, the fact is that nineteen Arabs – some of whom are still alive and have testified of their innocence – did not penetrate America’s state-of-the-art defenses and bring down three buildings with two planes. It simply didn’t happen, folks. Yet, if you state the obvious – namely, that it could have only been the work of a much deeper and higher level conspiracy – they get very angry and brand you a “conspiracy nut” for all time.

I suggest that 9/11 was likely a collaborative effort by several intelligence agencies of various countries or at least individual operatives in those agencies – to perpetrate an attack on the United States, blame it on Islamic scapegoats, and rope us into a disastrous, long-term war that would fulfill numerous anti-American objectives such as weakening our economy, increasing police state powers domestically, creating paranoia about “terrorists” (which they label anyone who dissents to their agenda), spreading thin and wearing out our military, creating friction at home, and making the United States into a world pariah by painting us as an oil-stealing, power-hungry, ruthless bogeyman. This is what they don’t want you to learn or say.

In addition, if you call the “War on Terror” a fraud, they say you’re unpatriotic or dangerous. Even certain “conservative” media pundits who shall remain unnamed label you a “danger to the nation” if you oppose our undeclared, unconstitutional, unjustifiable “War on Terror.” Did you know that in October 2001, the Taliban agreed to help us apprehend Osama bin Laden, but President Bush rejected the offer? Instead, we preferred to bomb and invade the nation of Afghanistan without proof that bin Laden was actually behind 9/11 and while rejecting an offer of help from the local regime. It might also interest you to realize that even mainstream sources have reported on the fact that the invasion plan for Afghanistan was drawn up before 9/11 and that bases in Uzbekistan and other Central Asian nations were already being prepped to stage the operation.

War on Terror1

What’s worse, we decided to invade Iraq two years later for no reason whatsoever except, it seems, on the word of the Israelis who had been urging us to depose Saddam Hussein for years and whose intelligence services implicated Iraq in the 9/11 attacks. As much as we may dislike Russia-backed, KGB-trained regimes – which are especially prevalent in the Middle East – do we have a right to bomb, besiege, invade, and occupy them? I submit that we do not unless they have harmed us, attacked our interests, or present a legitimate and imminent threat. I submit that Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said: “If there be one principle more deeply rooted than any other in the mind of every American it is that we should have nothing to do with conquest” (Thomas Jefferson to William Short, 1791). This is the true American spirit. Yet, if you oppose their “War on Terror” for any reason – constitutional, ideological, economic, or moral – they rush to stigmatize and delegitimize you.

Similarly, if you cite the mountain of evidence contradicting the Warren Commission’s “official” position that President Kennedy was assassinated by “lone nut” Lee Harvey Oswald, they go into a frenzy. By this standard, the U.S. Congress itself is a “conspiracy theorist” because in 1976 a congressional commission declared that there must have been two shooters; ergo, there was a conspiracy and one of the assassins is still at large. But of course the truth is much deeper. The evidence demonstrates that not only was Oswald a “patsy” like he testified before being murdered by a man linked to the mob, but that multiple assassins shooting from several locations riddled JFK’s car with bullets – as the Secret Service did nothing, broke protocol, and were intentionally undermanned – and that the forensic evidence witnessed by the doctors in Dallas was tampered with and altered in Washington, D.C. to fit the narrative. Yet, this is something they don’t want you to say.

Staying in the 60s for a moment, they don’t want you to know that before his death JFK had given the order to pull out of Vietnam completely. LBJ’s first order as president, which came mere hours after JFK’s brutal murder, was to reverse JFK’s directive and massively expand what became known as the War in Vietnam. Curiously, the dictum reversing JFK’s order had been written and submitted before JFK was shot. But of course, they can’t allow you to know this – just like they can’t allow you to inform others of the fact that the U.S. military actually won the War in Vietnam but Henry Kissinger deliberately sabotaged the peace efforts and gave South Vietnam to the communists.

They also don’t allow you to say, without being labeled a “racist” at least, that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a violent Marxist revolutionary and rampant plagiarizer with a devious sex life. Not surprisingly, King’s handlers were Jewish communists, most prominently Stanley Levison. King, who pretended to be a preacher, engaged in drunken sex orgies, beat prostitutes, and coerced women to perform lesbian acts for his amusement. This is a man who lied and cheated to “earn” his theological degree. He was a Marxist who was arrested on many occasions not because the police were racist, but because he was obstructing justice and disobeying the law. In all fairness, we should strip Michael King (his real name) of his title “doctor,” abolish the sycophantic holiday in his honor, and tell the truth that he was a lying, devious, immoral communist. Though, you won’t catch mainstream sources saying this because they won’t allow it to be said.

The truth about the Second World War is something else they absolutely don’t want you to know. They can’t allow you to say that a local war between Germany and Poland over territory that rightfully belonged to Germany and which was inhabited by ethnic Germans who were being abused and massacred by the Poles was deliberately turned into a world war by the British and French. On September 1, 1939, Germany retaliated against Poland for Poland’s attacks on her people. But it was on September 3 that the British and French declared war on Germany and French troops invaded Germany and occupied an eight kilometer swath of German land. Who declared war and struck the first blow that ignited the general war in Europe? The British and French. Yet, this is a cold hard fact they won’t let you say.

Eisenhower's Death Camps2

One of Eisenhower’s brutal post-war death camps

They also won’t allow you to know the truth that the worst atrocities committed during World War II were committed by the Allies against the Germans! Thomas Goodrich’s book Hellstorm is one of many that documents the atrocities in gory detail. Suffice it to say that we unnecessarily targeted civilians with our firebombings while the Soviets deliberately targets German women with rape. Some two million German women were raped by the Russian hordes at the end of, and even after, the war. Millions of Germans were displaced by the Soviets, and millions were murdered after the fighting ended. The Americans, British, and French also raped women, though their preferred methods of butchery were high-altitude bombing and starvation. Some 1-2 million German POWs were starved to death by order of Eisenhower after the war. Food from the Red Cross (which testified that Germany was the most staunch adherent to the Geneva Convention) was turned away – and sometimes burned outside the concentration camp gates – while hundreds of thousands of Germans who had surrendered in good faith withered. These unconscionable atrocities won’t appear in your school or university textbooks or in major Hollywood films, however, because they won’t allow the truth to be taught.

I’m sure you’re wondering, “But what of the Holocaust? Aren’t these atrocities understandable – even justified – by what the “Nazis” did?” Would it honestly surprise you at this point to learn that they have fabricated that history, too, just like they have fabricated atrocity propaganda for generations? Recall their World War One propaganda, now admitted by all historians to be utterly false, of German soldiers throwing Belgian babies into the air and impaling them on bayonets. In an April 13, 1923 speech, Adolf Hitler referred to this sort of libelous propaganda that turned world opinion against Germany: [T]he Jewish-democratic press of America had to accomplish its masterpiece – that is to say, it had to drive into the most horrible of all wars a great peaceloving people which was as little concerned in European struggles as it was in the North Pole: America was to intervene ‘in defense of civilization,’ and the Americans were persuaded so to do by an atrocity propaganda conducted in the name of civilization which from A to Z was a scandalous invention the like of which has never yet been seen – a farrago of lies and forgeries.” And so it was.

Remember that they also invented atrocity stories to rile us up to go to war against Iraq in 1991. In these atrocity fairy tales, Iraqi soldiers allegedly entered hospitals and murdered infants. The only problem is that the “eye witnesses” lied and were put up to the task to foment enough anger against Iraq to tolerate a U.S.-led military strike. It was the same in 2003 when we pushed the WMD tall tale and said we were invading Iraq to “spread democracy.” Time and time again atrocity propaganda provides either the pretext or later justification for military aggression.

Holohoax1

In like manner, they invented “Holocaust” propaganda tales to cover their own crimes and deflect pesky questions about war guilt. The “Holocaust” narrative isn’t even compelling to anyone who bothers to scratch the surface and do some digging. They have used a handful of false witnesses (famed “Holocaust survivors” who have later admitted their stories were fake or embellished are ubiquitous), scant or contradictory physical evidence, and a relentless smear campaign to push their tall tale. Through repetition and harsh shaming – including jail time and physical assault in some instances – against anyone who questions their narrative, they’ve created a culture of fear and blind acceptance. But the public’s blind acceptance doesn’t make something true. Indeed, general acceptance by the ignorant public is often a sign that there is a massive problem with whatever story is being peddled.

What’s most curious to me is that legions of former Jewish inmates at Auschwitz and other labor camps have testified to a radically different reality in the camps, yet their testimonies are summarily suppressed. Indeed, the SHOAH Foundation has chosen not to release most of their interviews with “Holocaust survivors.” Why? Perhaps it’s because they say things that do not jive with the accepted narrative. After all, many of those who have spoken out have testified that they were treated well, that they were paid for their labor in Auschwitz, that they performed theatrical plays, that they played soccer with SS guards, that they had access to the camp swimming pool (not normally shown to Auschwitz visitors) and brothels, that the Red Cross and others routinely visited the camp and never saw anything monstrous happening, and that though they may have heard horrible rumors of what was allegedly happening in their camps, they never personally witnessed any atrocities. The very fact that they’re alive belies the idea that the Germans were out to exterminate the Jews! A bullet to the back of the neck, Soviet-style, is a much more effective way of wiping out a population than a supposed gas chamber.

We should also suspect the mainstream narrative when we realize that all our initial information about gas chambers, crematoria, and death tolls in the millions came from the Soviets. Communists lie and deceive like it’s a bodily function. Don’t forget that it was the Soviet Union who murdered tens of thousands of Polish officers in the Katyn Forest and blamed it on Germany – a claim which the world accepted as “truth” for decades until the Soviets opened their archives and admitted the reality that Russia was the responsible party (validating what Hitler and the Germans had said about the matter). Yet, despite their mountain of lies, we’re supposed to trust the word of the Soviets when they allege that Germany slaughtered Jews in gas chambers!

Holohoax9

Should we also believe that the Germans used a peddle-operated brain-bashing machine to kill inmates, which was one of the initial Soviet claims? Or perhaps we should believe that Hitler developed an atom bomb and dropped it on some Jews in the Ukraine rather than on the Allied armies, as was also claimed at the Nuremberg show trials. Or yet still, maybe we ought to regurgitate the now universally debunked myth that Germans made soap and lampshades out of Jewish fat and skin. Or maybe we should continue to force our children to read The Diary of Anne Frank even though the New York Supreme Court has ruled it a forgery. At what point do the accusers lose their credibility in the eyes of the public? Are you afraid to tell the truth about the Holohoax simply because they don’t want you to? Isn’t telling the truth more important than enduring the mean names liars will call you for doing so?

It doesn’t matter how many Jewish and Israeli researchers debunk the myth that the Germans murdered 6 million Jews in gas chambers, they still call you “anti-Semitic” if you repeat the truth. The official archivists and historians at Auschwitz have lowered the alleged death toll at that labor (not death) camp from over 4 million to “about” one and a half million, consisting of those thought to be “mainlyJews (the Red Cross and numerous other historians and researchers put the number far lower and assign the cause of death as disease and starvation, not genocide). Automatically, the grand total must be lowered by 3 million – half the original “official” number. Yet, they would have you believe that 6-3=6. And when you factor in the lowered numbers at all the other death (i.e. labor) camps, the number dwindles to barely a blip on the radar. But be careful; this is something they don’t want you to know, let alone allow you to say! If you choose to speak the truth anyway, they might throw you in prison like Ernst Zündel or David Irving.

Holohoax13

Playing off this last point, it is apparent that the authentic history of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich is radically different than what they claim it is. I’ve written several articles on this point which you can find here, here, and here. Suffice it to say, they leap to silence you when you dare challenge their narrative that Hitler was the Devil incarnate. I’ve been banned more times from Facebook for speaking World War II truth than for any other reason. They simply don’t want you to know that far from being a genocidal madman, Hitler was a well-liked, well-respected, well-read reformer who promoted traditional families, Christianity (he was Catholic), and high morals while simultaneously opposing communism, Freemasonry, occultism, feminism, immorality, and the international bankers. He was not on the conspiracy’s payroll, trust you me. People who think he was controlled or empowered by the international conspiracy are horribly misinformed. Hitler opposed everything they stood for and in turn they destroyed him and hold him up to this very day as the arch-enemy of mankind. Anyone who stands up for him in interest of the truth is crucified and smeared as a “Nazi.” This situation of institutionalized ignorance will remain so long as they can dictate reality and silence truth-tellers, and so long as people on our side continue to lump Hitler in with the rest of the socialist psychopaths and repeat the Establishment’s garbage atrocity propaganda.

Don’t think they have unfairly treated Germany only. They have also twisted the history of the war against Japan. They portray Imperial Japan as a warmongering and brutal power which invaded China for conquest and later attacked us for no good reason. In fact, Japan’s foray into China was intended to thwart the incursion of communism into Asia. Before the war, Japanese writers were perplexed why the Western powers were not supporting their action against the communists flooding in from Soviet Russia. Japan was one of the three members of the Anti-Comintern Pact (i.e. anti-international communism) along with Germany and Italy. Isn’t it curious that the three nations that formally vowed to fight communism are the three singled out as the “enemy” in the propaganda they shove down our throats?

The reality is that Japan did not want war with the United States and only took that fateful step as a last option. However, as even prominent British historians have noted, few respectable nations would suffer the abuses heaped on Japan by the United States and Britain without going to war. Though they cry “conspiracy theorist!” the fact is that FDR – a through-and-through Marxist who surrounded himself with Soviet moles and had a veritable love affair with “Uncle Joe” Stalin – developed an eight-point plan to goad Japan into attacking us so that we could “justifiably” join the war against Germany and save the Soviet Union from imminent defeat. This is precisely what happened.

They not only prompted Pearl Harbor via their economic and political warfare, but had very precise foreknowledge of the attack (yet did absolutely nothing to stop it and didn’t warn our troops). They wanted it to happen in order to bring the United States into the war as their pawn! As the war they started progressed, they rejected numerous offers of surrender by both Germany and Japan (Germany alone offered peace terms close to twenty times), thus placing the war guilt fully on them. And, if you haven’t learned by now, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were wholly unnecessary from a war perspective, as quite literally all of our major generals publicly stated at the time. But of course these are things they won’t allow you to say to a mainstream audience.

communism449

They also do not want you to teach the reality that Spain’s Franco, Italy’s Mussolini, and modern Brazil’s Bolsonaro, to name only three world leaders often classified as “fascists” or “dictators,” came to power with one purpose – to stop communism in their countries. The Spanish Civil War, so-called, was in fact a communist uprising. Thousands of churches were burned to the ground. Thousands of priests were murdered. International brigades of Jews rushed in from the United States and elsewhere to assist the Spanish Marxists in their revolt. These communists created so much chaos that General Franco needed to step forward to restore order with a heavy hand. Franco, with Adolf Hitler’s indispensable help, saved Spain from turned into a full-fledged Soviet satellite. Mussolini similarly saved Italy from Marxism. And Bolsonaro – the “Trump of the Tropics” – is attempting to wrest his country from the strong grip of the communists. Naturally, this is something they won’t let you say to the general public which they desire to remain uninformed.

Another thing they don’t allow you to say above a whisper is that the current deluge of African and Middle Eastern immigrants in Europe is responsible for the massive rise in rape, crime, religious persecution of Christians, and terrorism. The statistics are clear – the migrants (largely Arab or Muslim, though certainly not practicing Muslims) are raping their way across the continent. Sweden and Germany are the two biggest victims of this hideous plague. They are storming into Britain and machete attacks in broad daylight are becoming routine. In France, hundreds of churches have been burned down by these terrorists in the past coupe of years, culminating in the suspicious destruction of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in April. And the infamous murder of Father Jacques Hamel next to the altar of his church outside Paris is a grotesque echo of Illuminati-inspired Jacobinism. Yet, the socialist authorities in Europe – and the social media censors globally – have declared it “hate speech” to identify the rapists and terrorists as immigrants, Muslims, or people of color. But truth is truth, regardless of whether they prohibit you from saying it.

Europe1

Similarly, they don’t want you to comprehend the immense damage illegal immigrants (i.e. invaders) are doing to the United States. As President Trump said, Mexico and other Marxist states in Latin America aren’t sending us their best people – they’re sending the dregs of society. The amount of drugs flowing across our Southern border is staggering. Some of this is brought in by our own corrupt intelligence services and a large percentage is brought in by the communists, but another sizable percentage comes here on the backs of illegals and cartel mules. They are changing not only the racial but political makeup of America by allowing these hordes of millions of socialists into our country. These dirt-poor invaders come from countries where they’ve been brainwashed into believing in socialism and expecting handouts from the welfare state. Consequently, when they arrive here, they’re on the fast track to registering and voting Democrat and living on the dole while complaining that we don’t speak their language and that we “stole” their ancestors’ land – a massive lie in and of itself. Of course, they won’t let you say any of this without branding you a loon, a “racist,” and a “right-wing extremist.”

They also won’t allow you to state the fact that there is no real white-on-black crime, racism, or discrimination in this country. Rather, the real crime epidemic is black-on-white, black-on-black, Latino-on-Latino, gang-on-gang, black-on-cop. White America is not plagued by violent crime, and is certainly not affected by racism, but the colored inner cities are. The communists focused heavily on indoctrinating and capturing the black and Latino populations in order to cause a race war and in order to funnel drugs and homosexuality through them to white America. They hold up agitators like MLK as icons of “peace,” but in reality they have radicalized all but a few blacks and Latinos and are preparing them to be cannon fodder in a coming civil war. Their agenda of creating a “Soviet America” is heavily dependent upon manipulating blacks and Latinos, and upon silencing whites by causing us to feel “white guilt” for our forefathers’ unsurpassed achievements, thus acquiescing to the destruction of our traditional culture and greatness. Because this is their agenda, they won’t allow you to get away with exposing it for long.

They also cringe when you cite the fact that South Africa was infinitely better off under white rule than black rule. Today, under the black communist regime, genocide is being perpetrated against the white population. Laws have been passed legalizing the confiscation of land from white farmers. The statistics are appalling. Each day numerous whites are both raped and murdered by the blacks. They’re rampaging throughout the nation, fueled by Marxist myths about “oppression” under white leadership. The true oppressors are those communists and terrorists who came to power with Nelson Mandela, a die-hard communist and convicted terrorist and Obama’s admitted role model. Africa is a miserable place today precisely because of the massive communist infiltration. But this is something they don’t want you to know or say. They would rather you believe that Africa is the way it is because of white colonialism and white oppression. But these myths fail the scratch test.

As implied earlier, homosexuality was pushed onto America by the cultural Marxists. They are behind the LGBT movement en toto. Henry Hay, a high-up Communist Party USA leader in his day, created the first homosexual association in the nation, the Mattachine Society, and went on to father the Radical Faeries and the pedophile organization known as the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). The LGBT movement is a communist front, as is feminism, from its inception! However, if you dare repeat this history or say that people afflicted by homosexuality and transgenderism have mental disorders, as the head psychiatrist at John Hopkins University famously declared, they will nail you for “hate speech.”

In the vein of sex perversions, they don’t want you to know that Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) is very real and very prevalent. The reason they murdered Jeffrey Epstein in prison – oops, they don’t want me to say he was “murdered” – is to ensure he never talk about the Elite’s rampant pedophilia and Satanic sex abuse of children. Yet, this abuse happens every day and some very big names have been implicated. The same occult sex perversions of bygone days are not as bygone as some would like to believe. Yet, this is something they don’t allow you to say without consequences – just ask Ted Gunderson.

They also work hard to conceal the fact that the ironically-named Child Protective Services (CPS) is part of this massive child trafficking, child abusing ring. While there are of course some children who need to be taken out of legitimately dangerous situations, thousands of other children are stolen from innocent, upstanding parents every year – especially Christian and conservative homes – and no one seems to care. Certainly, they don’t protest it since they are the ones behind it and benefiting from it. While you’re living your mundane life and thinking of nothing more than the ball game on ESPN, thousands of children in your country are being kidnapped by “legal” entities and sold into sex slavery and as fodder for ritualistic abuse. They don’t allow a peep of this to enter the mainstream discourse, yet it’s true.

The existence of MK-Ultra, a brutal mind control program led by the CIA, is something they don’t want you talking about. They want you to ignore the mass of documents released within the past year verifying the existence and horrors of MK-Ultra and validating “conspiracy theorists” like Alex Jones. They want to keep you in the dark about things they have, albeit reluctantly, admitted!

The Second Amendment is yet another topic they won’t let you talk freely about without discrediting you. They don’t want you to know that each year guns are used millions of times in self-defense. They don’t want you to know that tyrants throughout history have first disarmed their victims before victimizing them. They don’t want you to learn that total disarmament (i.e. total slavery) is their end goal for us. They don’t allow you to talk about the fact that most shootings occur in gun-free zones where people are disarmed and helpless, as opposed to areas like Montana or Idaho where guns proliferate and make communities safe. They don’t want you to realize that red flag gun confiscation laws are not only dangerous (at least one innocent man, Gary Willis, has already been murdered by police in Maryland after a disgruntled neighbor made a false report about him and cops showed up unannounced to steal his weapons), but are highly illegal and blatantly unconstitutional. They simply don’t let you state the fact that America is one of the safest nations on earth (largely because we have so many firearms) and that their agenda is to disarm and thereby enslave us.

They don’t allow you to learn the history of cancer and that numerous cures have been invented and suppressed. They don’t want you to know names like Royal Rife and Rick Simpson. They don’t want you to research the Biblical Greek word pharmakeia and its implications about modern medicine and drugs. They don’t want you to learn that hemp can cure cancer or that the U.S. government has multiple patents on cannabis because they proved as early as the 1970s that it cures cancerous tumors. They want you to continue to get sick, pay through the nose for expensive and worthless treatments like chemotherapy, and suffer endlessly as you or your loved ones endure an ailment that is highly curable. This is something they don’t allow you to say unless you’re fine with wearing the moniker “conspiracy theorist.”

They also don’t want you to comprehend the vaccination hoax (one of the leading causes of cancer, along with GMO food). It matters not how many doctors find links between vaccines and autism, or that Yale and Harvard have published dozens of studies verifying these links, they will censor you if you try to warn people that injecting themselves with a cocktail of ingredients including mercury, live viruses, aborted fetal cells, formaldehyde, and cancer-causing viruses is a potentially very dangerous thing. The more the rates of autism, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and vaccine-related injuries rises, the more they and their Big Pharma cohorts yell to drown you out.

Speaking of drowning, according to the “global warming” fear-mongers, civilization should be under water by now. Glacier National Park is quietly removing their “gone by 2020” signs since it’s less than two months from 2020 and, surprise, the glaciers are still here (just like Antarctica’s ice is expanding, the polar bear populations are growing, and the earth has gone through approximately twenty consecutive years of cooling). To fight this non-existent “global warming,” weather manipulation programs have been initiated, such as lacing the sky with reflective particles via what has come to be known as chemtrails. But if you dare say this, they will sear the letter k into your forehead per the ancient Roman practice of branding kalumniators, or false accusers, for all to see.

They also cry “fake!” when you state the truth that America was founded by Christians as a Christian nation. It perturbs them when you quote Thomas Jefferson’s declaration, “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus” (Thomas Jefferson to Charles Thomson, January 9, 1816) because it destroys their lie that Jefferson was an atheist or deist. They don’t want you to know that as governor of Virginia, Jefferson used public money to fund Christian churches, donated his own money to a Bible society’s effort to put a Bible in every home in the state, and hand-selected religious hymnals for use in public schools, because it explodes their anti-Christian and very harmful version of “separation of church and state,” a phrase originally used in a far different sense by the avowed Christian Thomas Jefferson. They want you to toe their line and regurgitate the lies they have invented about our humble and good Founding Fathers; and they won’t tolerate dissent without trying to undermine your credibility.

They go out of their way to smear another great American hero – the Indian-fighting, bank-killing, Constitution-supporting Andrew Jackson. They want you to focus on the Trail of Tears (the alleged horrors of which they grossly exaggerate) and ignore the fact that Jackson was the only president to successfully fight off the bankers and destroy their central bank scheme. This same cartel of Elitist financiers and conspirators are the ones promoting the myth that Jackson was an evil, racist demagogue. Yet, facts are facts, and the fact is that President Jackson was a true war hero, the only president in U.S. history to pay off the national debt completely, presided over an era of peace and prosperity, and thwarted the bankers’ malicious plans for America. Jackson’s proudest boast was, “I killed the bank!” We ought to remember him for his great achievements, such as squashing the national bank plot of his day. Yet, if you repeat these historical facts, they lash out and attempt to intimidate you into silence.

fuckyeah

A bust of Abraham Lincoln hanging comfortably between portraits of Lenin and Stalin at a communist rally. Birds of a feather. . .

Your self-censorship is also an object of their Civil War propaganda. Isn’t it curious that they love Abraham Lincoln? I find it very ironic that American “patriots” today lavish praise on Lincoln, a man on whom Karl Marx also heaped praise for aiding his communist world revolution. Lincoln violated the U.S. Constitution six ways to sundown, yet many modern “conservative” icons who claim to love the Constitution think he was grand. Certainly they think he was grand and they hold him up as someone to be replicated. Of course, they also push the false myth that Lincoln’s War was waged to free the slaves, that Lincoln’s clever “Emancipation Proclamation” war propaganda actually freed the slaves, that Lincoln was a man of peace, that the Confederacy was evil and racist, that the modern South is evil and racist, and that secession was not a God-given right. Naturally, they won’t let you use mainstream platforms to spread the truth that Lincoln enslaved tens of thousands of Northerners without cause, suspended the writ of habeus corpus, ripped up the Constitution, imprisoned judges who said he was violating the Constitution, rigged the election of 1864, pardoned war criminals, allowed his generals and troops to rape, pillage, and plunder the South, continued President Buchanan’s unwarranted persecutions against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and so forth. Now that is something they don’t allow you to say!

The same they who smear patriots like Jackson and Jefferson are the ones smearing President Donald Trump today – the very same they who concocted the laughably absurd stories of Trump-Russia “collusion.” Don’t misunderstand me; I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 and I won’t be voting for him next year either. He’s the best president in my lifetime, yet he’s also absurdly flawed in too many ways – morally and constitutionally foremost among them – for my conscience to allow me to vote for him. Yet, no matter how flawed a person may be, no one deserves to be unfairly smeared and falsely accused of things they didn’t do, especially while the truly guilty parties go free.

Russiagate10

Is there an American politician in modern memory who has been smeared by the mainstream press as consistently and vilely as President Trump has been? If so, I’m not aware of it. They don’t want you to know that there is zero substance to their “collusion” hoax propaganda a hoax perpetrated by long-time communists and corrupt individuals, it is now known, who were receiving not only fake intelligence, but money, from Russia! Yet, in their deranged paranoia and hatred, they and their myriad of dupes all across the political spectrum repeat their false and baseless accusations in order to destroy the few good things President Trump is trying to do and the confidence Americans have in effecting a political revival. They do not want the American People – those they consider inferior and too stupid to govern themselves without their “enlightened” guidance – getting the idea that they can use their inherent and rightful power to undo their Marxist agenda. Certainly, this is something they do not want you to say!

Finally, they don’t allow you to inform people that there really are more than two choices on election day. They try to paint all third parties as fringe lunatics with a snowball’s chance in hell of winning elections. Yet, what makes a political party “viable”? The only thing that makes a candidate or party viable is the amount of support they get at the polls. I’m here to inform you – though they don’t want me to – that there are a handful of terrific political organizations organizations worthy of your support; namely, the Independent American Party and the Constitution Party. I belong to the former (and ran for the U.S. House of Representatives under the IAP banner in 2014) and have voted for candidates of the latter like Chuck Baldwin and Darrell Castle. I don’t regret a single vote because I understand that a vote for principle is never wasted. This, my friend, is something they cannot tolerate hearing. It is an idea they know could spread across the nation like wildfire and undermine their entire house of cards. Yet it is something We the People simply cannot stop saying if we ever hope to break our shackles and become free again!

There are hundreds of things that they won’t allow you to say without consequences and punishment, either actual or virtual. My list is sufficient to show that the powers-that-be – the global Marxist Establishment – has a stranglehold on the public mind. They control the writing of history, the narrative of current events, and dictate their own warped version of “reality.” The “reality” they promote, however, is a long string of lies, half-truths, and distortions. Not any old lies, but Red lies – lies that only benefit the worldwide communist conspiracy and its abettors.

The ideological progeny of the Illuminati of yesteryear are the communists and socialists of today. The Establishment is working overtime to curtail free speech, discredit truth-tellers, and silence dissent to their Satanic communist dogmas. They are vile and evil; malicious in the extreme. Their intent is to silence you. Right now, they are, with some notable exceptions, attacking us mainly in virtual reality. Soon, however, the real persecutions will begin. Soon, the West will employ a Chinese-style social credit system – the Mark of the Beast. Then, perhaps, you will understand that they really do exist, that they hate you, that their agenda is to destroy your family and enslave you, and that the “controversial” and “hateful” things I’ve written are true. But, hey, you had better just forget everything you’ve read here today, because it is something they don’t want me to say.

Truth Offends the Ignorant and Guilty

A truth I learned as a boy from reading the holy scriptures is that “the guilty taketh the truth to be hard, for it cutteth them to the very center” (1 Nephi 16:2). I also learned that “the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Yet, society at large does not hold these or any truths to be sacred. Few things are as despised and abused in our Marxist-inspired culture as truth. So universally hated and feared is truth that we have collectively conceded that “telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” I submit to you, however, that there are only two groups of people who hate, conceal, or reject truth – the ignorant and the malicious or guilty.

Truth is ennobling. Truth is liberating. Truth is power! In my article “What is Truth?” I observed:

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.”

truth6

Let’s be clear – truth is not subjective. The very definition and nature of truth suggests something that is unchanging and unalterable. Truth does not change. Truth cannot change. The great religious giant Spencer W. Kimball once delivered an address entitled “Absolute Truth.” In it, he gave us these wise words:

There are absolute truths and relative truths. The rules of dietetics have changed many times in my lifetime. Many scientific findings have changed from year to year. The scientists taught for decades that the world was once a nebulous, molten mass cast off from the sun, and later many scientists said it once was a whirl of dust which solidified. There are many ideas advanced to the world that have been changed to meet the needs of the truth as it has been discovered. There are relative truths, and there are also absolute truths which are the same yesterday, today, and forever—never changing. These absolute truths are not altered by the opinions of men. As science has expanded our understanding of the physical world, certain accepted ideas of science have had to be abandoned in the interest of truth. Some of these seeming truths were stoutly maintained for centuries. The sincere searching of science often rests only on the threshold of truth, whereas revealed facts give us certain absolute truths as a beginning point so we may come to understand the nature of man and the purpose of his life.

The earth is spherical. If all the four billion people in the world think it flat, they are in error. That is an absolute truth, and all the arguing in the world will not change it. Weights will not suspend themselves in the air, but when released will fall earthward. The law of gravity is an absolute truth. It never varies. Greater laws can overcome lesser ones, but that does not change their undeniable truth. . . .

If men are really humble, they will realize that they discover, but do not create, truth. . . .

If I can only make clear this one thing, it will give us a basis on which to build. Man cannot discover God or his ways by mere mental processes. One must be governed by the laws which control the realm into which he is delving. . . .

. . . I repeat, these are not matters of opinion. They are absolute truths. These truths are available to every soul” (President Spencer W. Kimball, “Absolute Truth,” BYU Address, September 6, 1977).

Truth is simply the reality of things as they are – not as we wish them to be. Truth does not bend to our will – it is eternally self-existent and independent. Popular opinion has zero bearing on truth. All of humanity could gather and vote to abolish gravity and yet gravity would remain. The majority might dismiss the divinity of Jesus Christ, but Jesus is still the Christ, the Son of God, the Creator of this earth, the Redeemer of mankind, the King of king and Lord of lords. Truth does not need your consent or society’s approval to exist.

Truth is one of the major active ingredients in the only remedy that can cure our society. But a remedy is only effective if we properly diagnose the problem, if we take it in time, and if the mixture is correct. Yet, year after year I see a growing antipathy toward truth. Reality has been dismissed. Black is called white, darkness is called light, hate is called love, permissiveness is called tolerance, and lies are called truth. We have wholly disregarded Isaiah’s ancient warning:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

The religious leader and former judge Dallin H. Oaks made a keen observation about the current trends in our society:

Evil that used to be localized and covered like a boil is now legalized and paraded like a banner. The most fundamental roots and bulwarks of civilization are questioned or attacked. Nations disavow their religious heritage. Marriage and family responsibilities are discarded as impediments to personal indulgence. The movies and magazines and television that shape our attitudes are filled with stories or images that portray the children of God as predatory beasts or, at best, as trivial creations pursuing little more than personal pleasure. And too many of us accept this as entertainment.

The men and women who made epic sacrifices to combat evil regimes in the past were shaped by values that are disappearing from our public teaching. The good, the true, and the beautiful are being replaced by the no-good, the “whatever,” and the valueless fodder of personal whim. Not surprisingly, many of our youth and adults are caught up in pornography, pagan piercing of body parts, self-serving pleasure pursuits, dishonest behavior, revealing attire, foul language, and degrading sexual indulgence.

An increasing number of opinion leaders and followers deny the existence of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and revere only the gods of secularism. Many in positions of power and influence deny the right and wrong defined by divine decree. Even among those who profess to believe in right and wrong, there are “them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isa. 5:20; 2 Ne. 15:20). Many also deny individual responsibility and practice dependence on others, seeking, like the foolish virgins, to live on borrowed substance and borrowed light.

All of this is grievous in the sight of our Heavenly Father, who loves all of His children and forbids every practice that keeps any from returning to His presence” (President Dallin H. Oaks, “Preparation for the Second Coming,” General Conference, April, 2004).

Without question, evil is masquerading as good these days and the enemy of all mankind is persuading us to adopt practices and principles which have proven the downfall of empires and peoples in times past. For instance, transgenderism and homosexuality – two twin mental and spiritual disorders – are being promoted by the Establishment press, Hollywood, and complicit academia as “normal,” “natural,” and “healthy” while heterosexuals are labeled as “abnormal,” “unloving,” and “bigoted.” Drag queens are infiltrating our schools and libraries, holding reading times with students and having children sit on their laps. Society denies the reality that there are only two genders and instead allows people to choose from an ever-expanding smorgasbord of identities ranging from “non-binary” to “pangender” to “gender fluid” to “two-spirit” to “questioning.” And so forth.

Remember, truth cuts the guilty to their core. They inwardly know they’re living a lie, but they don’t want to give up the fantasy. They prefer a comfortable lie to an uncomfortable truth. And truths which, if acknowledged, would force them to change their minds or behavior, are the worst. To indulge their fantasies and neuroses without feeling the sting of guilt, deluded people shout down, cover up, and censor those speaking truth.

guns85

One such example prompted me to write this article. Yesterday, I attempted to share an article from Conservative Media on Facebook. The article is titled “FBI: Over 5 Times More Killed with Knives than Rifles.” The article in part stated:

FBI crime stats for 2018 show over five times as many people were killed with knives and/or other cutting instruments than were killed with rifles.

The FBI data shows a total 1,515 deaths by knives and/or other cutting instruments vs. 297 deaths by rifle in 2018. . . .

Ironically, over 100 more people were killed with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles in 2018.

It must be noted that the category of rifle includes all kinds of rifles, not just bolt action or semiautomatic, not just pump or lever action. So the gap between knife homicides and rifle homicides or hammer/club homicides and rifle homicides would be even larger if contrasted only with semiautomatic rifles, versus rifles of all kinds.”

These facts, these statistics, these truths, forcefully refute the false narrative that America is plagued by gun violence, that rifles (including assault rifles) are a danger to society, and that gun control is a necessary solution. Apart from socialist-controlled cities like Chicago and Detroit which implement strict gun control laws that disarm and make defenseless ordinary citizens, the United States has virtually no problem with gun violence and ranks as one of the safest nations on earth. In actual point of fact, far more people are killed by knives than by those oh-so-scary “assault weapons.” This is the reality – your daily dose of distortions from the media be damned.

Obviously, the Elite and those mind-addled dupes who promote their anti-Freedom, anti-Constitution, anti-America agenda can’t allow the reality to be known. They can’t afford for people to know the truth that America is a great nation, that we are generally safe, and that guns protect us, save lives, and deter crime and tyranny. So what do they do? They do what they do best – censor the truth, demonize truth-sharers, and spin lies to warp minds. When I attempted to share Conservative Media’s article, Facebook gave me an error message which stated: “Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive.”

Screenshot_20191001-151719

Abusive? This is what the truth is to socialists, progressives, and liberals – “abusive.” The Social Justice Warriors and cultural Marxists can’t allow truth to spread. Truth destroys their agenda which is based on lies. So they go out of their way to flag the truth as “abusive,” “offensive,” and “against community standards.” But let’s be honest: Truth is only “abusive” and “offensive” to an ignorant or malicious person.

In this case, there are no doubt some deluded, emotion-driven, bleeding-heart types who legitimately think that either the FBI’s statistics are wrong or that Conservative Media made up the story, and that perpetuating the “lie” would endanger more people. However, in order to fall into this category, you have to almost be willfully, intentionally ignorant and fully out of touch with reality. You can’t claim the appellation “intelligent” if you believe guns are a problem or that gun control would save lives. More likely, the people who reported this fact-based article as “abusive” have malicious intent against our Freedom and desire the triumph of their Marxist ideology over traditional Americanism.

Another example of truth-hating that has dominated the news lately is the story of the Swedish socialist Greta Thunberg and her cacophony of global warming lies. In case you were fortunate enough to miss it, the sixteen-year-old George-Soros-approved socialist Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg, who might have literal mental problems, went viral after sobbing and ranting at a U.N. climate change summit about how her generation has been “betrayed,” how the world will end because of global warming, and how the rising generation will seek vengeance. In her talk vaguely addressed to world leaders (or, truthfully, to capitalists and anyone with sense to oppose communism), she ranted:

You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you! . . . .

You are failing us. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say: We will never forgive you.

“We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

I’m not exactly sure who is dying because of fictitious “global warming” or how any sane and honest person can claim we’re beginning a “mass extinction” because Americans like to drive SUVs, yet that’s what this little socialist soldier claimed.

It’s the same communist clap-trap, only this time with an indoctrinated, enraged teenager as the poster child. In my books A Century of Red and Red Gadiantons, I made it clear that the environmentalist movement is a communist creation. I call it “green communism.” The end goal of the radical environmentalist movement is two-fold: 1) to get the nations of the world so hysterical with fear that they’ll give up their national sovereignty to the United Nations and allow the U.N. to redistribute the wealth of the West to third world nations (i.e. to local yes-men and despots); and 2) to initiate the world into pagan earth-worship.

global warming3

No matter how many Greta Thunbergs the Elite push forward to tug on our heartstrings, propaganda and hysteria can’t change facts. Whipping yourself into an emotional frenzy and lying about the so-called threat of climate change does not make it reality. The fact is man-made global warming is a myth. We are now at twenty straight years of global cooling – not warming.

For generations the climatologists have been wrong. First they predicted an ice age before the year 2000, then they latched onto the global warming myth, and now they have employed vague language like “climate change” to confuse people and promote their lies. Competent scientists have refuted the myth of man-made global warming. Literally tens of thousands of scientists have signed petitions disputing the mainstream claims – destroying the myth of a scientific “consensus.” And does no one remember the major “climate gate” scandal where it was revealed that the United Nations was forging the numbers to make it appear that the globe is cooling when in fact the data tell us that the globe is cooling?

It’s time, ladies and gentlemen, to speak out and refute lies and mental illness when they’re shoved down our throats as “truth” and “reality.” It’s time to admit that truth trumps people’s feelings. Should we lose our country or our Liberty because a sixteen-year-old girl cries and yells on national TV about something that isn’t even true? Should we lose our God-given rights and Constitution because some disaffected and delusional leftists think facts and statistics are “abusive”? When will we say enough is enough? When will we ditch faux “tolerance” and instead promote truth over error?

We have an uphill battle ahead of us. The path will be long and difficult because we’ve tolerated the lies for so long they now weigh us down. But the truth is worth the struggle. In one of my favorite single declarations ever made, Thomas Jefferson stated:

[P]olitics, like religion, hold up the torches of martyrdom to the reformers of error” (Thomas Jefferson to James Ogilvie, August 4, 1811).

We must be the Reformers of Error for our generation. If we who know the truth, whether it be about religion, politics, economics, or what have you, do not step forward and give the truth voice, who will? Our enemies are doing everything they can to burn us. They’re attacking us with the fury of Jesuit Inquisitions. But stand firm – the truth is on your side. And know that if our enemies figuratively burn you for telling the truth, you’re in good company – the company of patriots and prophets, reformers and Freedom Fighters.

The ultimate act of truth-suppression known to humanity occurred when the Jews murdered our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Lord testified: “[Y]e seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God” (John 8:40).” The hard-hearted Pharisees, Sadducees, and their fanatical followers hated the truth so badly that they arrested, falsely accused, and cruelly killed the very Son of God, the Messiah, the Redeemer of mankind.

Christ72

The Savior gave us a key to discern whether or not we love truth. He said:

For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God” (John 3:20-21).

Light is knowledge and truth. The Lord is “the light of the world” (John 8:12). God is also the “Spirit of truth” (John 16:13; Doctrine and Covenants 93:9, 11). During His perfect life and ministry, the Lord’s light shone so brightly that it illuminated the darkness that consumed the Kabbalistic Jewish rulers. These demagogues were frequently baffled and overpowered by the Savior’s light, wisdom, and truth. They could not continue leading the Jews down their darkened path as blind guides while the Savior’s light beamed for all to see. Therefore, the Jewish leaders conspired to kill Jesus and did just that when the Savior’s mission – His Atonement – was complete.

Today, there are those in our midst who behave like the Pharisaical Jews and wish to silence those whose light exposes their lies, conspiracies, and wickedness. Those who knowingly and intentionally conceal truth have firmly established themselves in Satan’s camp. What the Lord explained to the Jews applies with equal force to liars and malicious individuals today:

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. . . .

He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God” (John 8:44-45, 47).

Honest and sincere people, when they hear the truth presented to them in its purity, believe. Those who are not honest in heart reject the truth when they hear it. It is the same in religion as it is in politics. Again I cited Jefferson:

[P]olitics, like religion, hold up the torches of martyrdom to the reformers of error.”

We have a choice to make. We must decide whether we’ll side with truth no matter how uncomfortable or unpopular it may be or whether we’ll shield our egos and fantasies with convenient lies. There is no middle ground between truth and error, fact and falsity, light and darkness. If one is sincere but ignorant, that can easily be corrected. There is nothing shameful about not knowing something that no one has ever told you before. However, once truth is presented to us, then we have a moral obligation to accept or reject it. And this choice shows us who we really are and where we really stand.

patriots3

There has never been a time when Christians and patriots weren’t persecuted and hated. It’s part of the burden of discipleship and patriotism. But if we love our Faith, our Families, and our Freedom, we must shoulder the burden and manfully do our duty. God will support those who love truth more than ignorance, truth more than popularity, and truth more than convenience. Stand for truth, my fellow countryman! Stand and be counted!

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” – Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, No. 1, December, 1776
