Progress Report on the “Purple Revolution”

During the 2016 election, I wrote a series of articles explaining how Barack Obama’s global fast-tracking of the “progressive” agenda had caused the the traditional left/right division of western society to morph into a war of Nationalism vs Communism, essentially recreating the hyper-polarization that Germany experienced in the 1920s and early 30s. This was a phenomenon I predicted in 2009 with the rise of the Tea Party and Occupy movements, and saw come to fruition in 2016 in a 25-nation personal fact-finding tour. http://www.scottlively.net/2016/07/01/my-2009-prediction-of-the-trump-campaign/

Just after the election, news emerged of a planned “Purple Revolution” in the United States, to be orchestrated by George Soros and the Clintons along the lines of Soros’ “color revolutions” in various countries of the former Soviet Union.
https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2016/11/11/clintons-and-soros-launch-america-purple-revolution.html

I then predicted the following, some of which has already occurred, sooner than I expected:

“1) An army of faceless anarchists engaged in civil disobedience and property destruction on an “anti-fascism” theme (imagine the explosion of street violence in the late 1960s but employing “social justice” rather than anti-war rhetoric – like Black Lives Matter but bigger and broader). This is designed to terrorize the public but also to deliberately provoke police reactions that can be documented on film and edited to misrepresent the police as Brownshirt-style fascists.

2) A coordinated propaganda campaign by all the usual suspects on the left in media, academia, Hollywood, and the non-profit/foundations sector, branding the Trump administration as a fascist regime akin to the Third Reich. This will build slowly but inexorably as the left gathers and weaves together its case like a crooked prosecutor in the courtroom of international opinion.

3) Obstruction of conservative policy through guerrilla litigation tactics by groups such as the Center for Constitutional Rights and Southern Poverty Law Center, and their silent partners in the federal judiciary.”

In the weeks leading to the Trump inauguration, Barack Obama jumped into the “resistance” movement with both feet and conducted a campaign of sabotage of our government designed to deny President Trump an ability to effectively govern. I compared Obama’s actions to Adolf Hitler’s sabotage of Cherbourg, France as the Germans withdrew from Brittany, and predicted an American leftist version of the German post-D-Day counter-offensive known as the Battle of Bloody Gulch.
http://www.scottlively.net/2017/01/03/obamas-hitlerian-departure/

Obama also attempted to trigger a hot war with Russia in his final days in office, a move that might well have worked save for the remarkable restraint of Vladimir Putin. To the US provocation of withdrawing its diplomatic staff from Russia in manner historically taken only on the threshold of military action, Putin responded with grace and humor, diffusing the crisis. US military maneuvers in Europe that had been set in motion by Obama in anticipation of a hot war footing were forced to play out in an entirely unilateral and unjustifiable context.
http://www.scottlively.net/2017/01/04/obamas-desperate-war-with-russia-gambit/

From Day One of the Trump administration, Trump-hating leftists and elitists from both parties, including the leadership of the GOP establishment, have worked to undermine every aspect of his administration and policy agenda and to lay the groundwork for his impeachment or forced resignation. It was only through superior strategic thinking that Trump outmaneuvered these “deep state” operatives and removed the linchpin of their strategy: James Comey. http://usdefensewatch.com/2017/05/the-inside-story-on-how-trump-dropped-the-hammer-on-james-comey/ (This is really a must-read analysis).

The “Impeach Trump” strategy was essentially gutted at that point, though those who set the Special Prosecutor process in motion to accomplish the goal were left building a gallows in the public square without a “culprit” to hang.

Like the malicious schemer Haman in the Biblical story of Esther, I predict that some of the very people that set up President Trump are going to dangle from their own noose.

But that’s a sideshow, now. The main event is the full-throated blood-in-the-streets Communist/Anarchist revolt that the political left has always dreamed of. They came close to achieving it in the 1960s. And they got a little taste this decade with the carefully orchestrated Black Live Matter rioting, and more recently with the Steve Scalise shooting. However, now that the “mainstream” media and Hollywood appear fully on board, and Bernie Sanders has given the order to his army to “resist” by any means necessary, and (after Ossoff) the “centrist” Democrats realize that they can’t seem to win through the legitimate political process any more, the perfect storm of political rage and opportunity appear to be shaping up for the summer of 2017.

I was a bit early in my prediction of widespread violence, stating in March of 2016 that I expected it to erupt before the November election http://www.scottlively.net/2016/03/17/there-will-be-blood/

However, as I pointed out then, the original agitators that started the war in the streets of pre-Nazi Germany were not the Nationalists, but the Communists. Nationalism was the reaction, not the cause. It’s very unfortunate that the closest blueprint for what’s unfolding in America is Germany, since the Nationalists here are by no means Nazis, nor is overwhelmingly pro-Israel Trump in any way another Hitler. However, Communists are Communists wherever you find them, as predictable as voter fraud in a Democrat-controlled city: they WILL initiate serious violence and blame it on “fascism,” its only a question of when and to what extreme.

Mark my words, the “Purple Revolution” will run red.

The “Great Satan,” the “Deep State,” and Christian America

 

In 2007 I was with the late, great Pastor Ken Hutcherson in Riga, Latvia, working with a broad coalition of Christian denominations to defend Biblical marriage and family values against the global LGBT agenda. When we discovered that the campaign was being advanced by the U.S. Embassy we paid a visit there to ask why the George W. Bush administration was working against the will of more than 90% of the Latvian people within their own borders. We got a lot of double-talk by a third tier diplomat, and the next day Hutch was publicly attacked and stripped of his credentials as a representative of the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiative. A few weeks later, diplomats from the US and Sweden led a minuscule “Gay Pride” parade behind a double wall of 6′ steel fences and guarded by an enormous army of riot police with full body armor and machine guns – proof that they truly understood just how offensive this championship of perversion was to the Latvian people, and just how determined they were to shove it down their throats.

In 2011, my scheduled late-February seminar on pro-family activism in Chisnau, Moldova was preempted by a sudden, secretive attempt by the Moldovan government to push through an “anti-discrimination” law on “sexual orientation” — in anticipation of presenting it as a gift to Obama via an upcoming visit to the country by Vice President Joe Biden. Instead of holding that seminar, I helped a coalition of denominational leaders direct a successful 4-day nationwide citizens lobbying effort to kill that bill, explaining in numerous media interviews that such “sexual orientation regulations” (SORs) are the seed that contains the entire tree of the LGBT agenda, with all of its poisonous fruit. This was the same Obama administration that in December of that year – by Executive Order – directed all US agencies to push the “gay” agenda globally: http://thegroundtruthproject.org/obama-administration-pushes-global-lgbt-rights-into-the-limelight/

In 2016, I traveled to Kyrgyzstan where I lent my support to a successful campaign to amend the national constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. Again, it was Obama’s US State Department, and various George-Soros affiliated non-governmental organizations (NGOs), leading the effort to push the LGBT agenda on an overwhelmingly conservative nation.

This month, June, 2017, President Donald Trump’s State and Defense Departments, reaffirmed their support for the LGBT agenda. The White House itself did not, thankfully, but thus far, President Trump has NOT reversed Obama’s Executive Order that still commands the entire executive branch to actively undermine Biblical values on sex and marriage as a international priority.

I love my country, and am deeply grieved that in the area of sexual morality we indeed seem almost to have become, as the Iranians love to chant, the “Great Satan” of the world. When I read Chapters 17 and 18 of the Book of Revelation in my Bible, I cannot help but recognize a parallel between America and “Mystery Babylon,” whether or not they are actually the one and the same. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality” (Rev 18:3).

What the world sees today is NOT the America established as a Shining City on a Hill, as proclaimed by the Pilgrim Governor John Winthrop, citing the Sermon on the Mount. Nor is it the “Christian nation” vigorously affirmed by the United States Supreme Court in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 143 U.S. 457 (1892), nor the “One nation under God” without which “democracy will not and cannot long endure,” as affirmed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Christian America has been suppressed and its power usurped.

Because of our apathy and fear of “politics,” today’s America is the plaything of the Secular Humanists of the “Deep State” – which really isn’t “deep” any more, because it’s defiance of Biblical morality and abuse of every lever of political power is now blatant and undisguised. True, this demonic shadow government has long existed, and served its own interests in countless undeclared wars, “regime changes,” domestic policy manipulations and judicial subversions of our constitution, but heretofore mostly from behind the curtain. Thanks to the Internet, and an awakened and activist populist movement, the hidden hand of the global “elite” is now visible to those willing to see. Yet so many Christians remain unwilling to look.

American exceptionalism was a manifestation of her Christian heritage and culture, represented by such things as the sending of missionaries throughout the world to build churches, schools and hospitals, and sometimes sending our young men to fight and die to defend the fundamental values of Judeo-Christian civilization. “Freedom” meant the right to raise your family without government control and “Security” meant a limited government that rewarded virtue and discouraged vice through education, law and it’s own internal rules. National Socialism and Communism were the greatest enemies in our history and the Marxist ideology that underlay both of them was the antithesis of what we held dear.

For what do we now send our young men and women to die in foreign lands? The right to kill unborn babies in the wombs of their mothers by the millions? The “freedom” to indulge in every form of sexual deviance with their attendant diseases and dysfunctions? The “security” of public policy and culture that decimates families and breeds social chaos and violence? “Freedom” that promotes vice and punishes virtue? “Security” that bleeds every working family of its earnings to redistribute to an ever expanding welfare class and the bloated bureaucracy that administers it?
Where is the exceptionalism we were once so right to hail? It has been replaced by various forms of National Socialism and Communism, recharacterized as “political correctness.” Yet many Christians still cheer as if nothing has really changed all that much.

I visited 25 countries in 2016 to assess and assist the populist movement wherever it advanced under a tacitly Christian banner. Today, its two biggest victories, the Brexit vote I celebrated in London, and the Trump presidency I flew home to cast my vote for, are both steadily being undermined by the “elites.” This international “Deep State” network is the actual “Great Satan.” It’s agents in this country, from those many still hidden, to the Paul Ryans, Mitch McConnells and John McCains are united in a grand conspiracy – pretending to serve the people while serving only their globalist goals – intentionally failing to accomplish that to which they pay only lip service, while stabbing President Trump in the back at every turn.

The President is not our savior, just a tough man willing to endure rats, snakes and leeches to drain a swamp. Our Savior is Christ and we are His hands and feet in this nation. It is only the Christian nation within the nation that has the power to defeat the “Great Satan.” Let us recognize that end as our duty.

Returning to the Lion’s Den

After prayer and careful consideration, I, and my courageous wife, have decided, with the help of our stalwart legal team at Liberty Counsel, to take the unusual step of appealing the dismissal of the SMUG v Lively lawsuit to the First Circuit Court of Appeals. We believe that action is necessary to purge the prejudicial ruling of Judge Ponsor’s false and subjective assertion that the incidents in Uganda on which the suit is based (incidents by parties unknown to me that the record shows I had no part in) constitute crimes against humanity, lowering the standard for asserting such claims almost to nothing. While within US jurisprudence his statements might hopefully be recognized as mere editorializing and not legally binding, the same is not necessarily true in foreign and international courts where the ostensibly true (but actually false) statement “The United Stated Federal Court has ruled…” would severely undermine all Christian and morally conservative defendants charged with committing or even “inspiring” the type of garden variety civil rights abuses Judge Ponsor has said are now crimes against humanity.

His ruling:

 http://lc.org/060617350LivelyOrderGrantingSummaryJudgment.pdf

To be clear, Judge Ponsor considers me guilty of the worst category of international crime for simply preaching the Biblical view against homosexuality and teaching about the history and tactics of the LGBT movement – because other people I never met or communicated with, including officials of an independent sovereign nation where homosexuality has always been illegal, might possibly have been indirectly influenced to be hostile toward homosexuals based on my comments, and then to commit, over a period of ten years, a handful of relatively minor civil rights abuses which I have publicly condemned. To be sure, Judge Ponsor’s false narrative harms not only my name, but also potentially subjects me to further harassment and litigation in state, federal or international courts. But, beyond the harms perpetrated against me, Judge Ponsor’s “ruling” can be used by SMUG and CCR to intimidate and punish fellow Christians who dare speak up for Biblical values. I cannot in good conscience countenance these harms.

In a Daily Beast interview, SMUG’s lead attorney Pam Spees confessed that this is indeed their plan to use Judge Ponsor’s ruling to punish me and others for speaking out against the “gay” agenda around the world.

“The precedent set in the ruling was significant, Spees said, in sending a deterrent message to Lively and other anti-LGBT activists like him… persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity is a crime against humanity under international law…one of most serious crimes in international law. In looking at the evidence produced, it showed that Lively aided and abetted persecution, and was trying to do so elsewhere around the world. It’s just that he can’t be held accountable here because of the ruling limiting the Court’s jurisdiction–not that he didn’t do it.”

“Spees said Lively, and others like him, could face prosecution in other countries where laws to prosecute him already existed. These factual findings go a long way in helping advocates in other countries build support for these kinds of claims….[T]his case and these findings have contributed something very significant to the understanding of international law.”

The US federal judiciary is still the world’s most respected legal authority and with this devious strategic maneuver Judge Ponsor – ideologically though not necessarily transactionally aligned with Spees’ so-called Center for Constitutional Rights — had audaciously hijacked that credibility to serve the global “gay” agenda with devastating implications for the cause of Christ around the world. The only way that can be stopped is for me to voluntarily return to the lion’s den and appeal the very ruling that released me from the lawsuit. We now do so willingly, placing our trust in God that he will vindicate us.

Now for some background for those not familiar with the case and its dismissal

On June 5th Judge Michael Ponsor finally pulled the plug on the federal lawsuit under which I have chaffed for five years and two months. Accused of “Crimes Against Humanity” for simply preaching against homosexuality – rationally and compassionately — in Uganda in 2009, I was continually pilloried, harassed and maligned by leftist media and activist organizations around the world and characterized as a global agent of genocidal malice and intent. In 2014, the world’s largest and most powerful homosexual advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign, designated me as public enemy #1 of the “gay” agenda around the world – a move I believe was designed to bolster the SMUG v Lively lawsuit.

My Motion for Summary Judgment killing the suit was finally granted on the grounds that the Supreme Court had severely restricted the obscure 1790s law under which it was filed, the Alien Tort Statute (ATS). That occurred four years earlier in 2013, and I recall that in open court that year Judge Ponsor advised the parties that he would not rule on my then-pending Motion to Dismiss until SCOTUS had ruled in that case, strongly implying that SMUG v Lively would be moot if they curbed the reach of the ATS. Yet, after the ATS was gutted, Judge Ponsor not only denied my motion in a terribly hostile and blatantly flawed opinion, but also opposed my subsequent effort to ask the First Circuit Court of Appeals to review his decision.

Because of that, I was forced to endure another four years of pain and suffering at the hands of my leftist persecutors, whom Judge Ponsor had granted a fishing expedition into all of my files, writings and other ministry activities to look for ways to harm me. That “discovery process” placed a huge financial burden on my ministry, but even more so on Liberty Counsel, which had taken on my defense pro-bono.

The emotional burden was worse. I was grilled for two days under oath in Manhattan by a hired-gun Boston trial attorney, and forced to spend weeks responding to document demands and written interrogatories, and had year after year to assist my attorneys in preparing and reviewing countless legal filings. I lived throughout the entire half-decade of legal persecution with the knowledge that the long process – if not stopped by the judge – would end with a jury trial in Massachusetts, the most pro-homosexual state in the union, where the potential jury pool had all been subjected to years of propaganda casting me as a social pariah. The specter of a media-driven show trial and the likelihood of a politically motivated adverse ruling, with potentially large compensatory and punitive damages plus millions in attorney fees – followed by decades of harassment as SMUG’s debtor – always loomed before me.

This was all on top of the regular burden of hate-mail, slander and dirty tricks that anyone faces who opposes the “gay” agenda with any degree of effectiveness. Think “cake-bakers, printers and florists” and magnify the abuse they faced by several degrees of magnitude. My load of such things may be the heaviest of anyone in the U.S., though I’m pretty much used to it by now.

As a Christian pastor with deep trust in Jesus Christ, I willingly suffered all these things, praying always “Thy will, not my will, be done,” and recognized that I became a better man through that “refiner’s fire” of persecution. Still, pain of any kind is never easy to endure.

Then came June 5th. The case was dismissed and I was able to separate the sliver of good that I perceived Judge Ponsor did in finally following the law, from the great preponderance of malfeasance he perpetrated by NOT following the law four years ago and by issuing a ruling filled with animus toward me personally and legally indefensible conclusions about the law and facts of the case. I wrote to the journalist who interviewed me for the “Daily Beast” article:

“Like so many who embrace the “gay” cause as their own, Judge Ponsor lacks any sense of objectivity or fairness and has degraded himself and the federal judiciary with his sophomoric rhetoric and willingness to mischaracterize the facts to comport with a false political narrative.”

Over the past few days, my sense of relief from the dismissal has been replaced with the urgency of the danger posed by Judge Ponsor’s ruling to me and to Christian advocates around the world. As I began thinking of the implications of this ruling for me and all the courageous pro-family Christians around the world standing for Biblical truth against great opposition, I realized that our struggle is not yet over, and we must continue to defend the United States Constitution and our shared Biblical values. Therefore, I am voluntarily returning to the lions den. Please keep us in your prayer.

SMUG v Lively Dismissed

Judge Dismisses Bogus SMUG v Lively
“Crimes Against Humanity” Federal Lawsuit

Ruling: http://www.scottlively.net/2017/06/06/smug-v-lively-dismissed/

Statement by Pastor Lively:

After five long years, the case of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) v Scott Lively has been dismissed. I thank God for His deliverance from this outrageous and malicious litigation, designed solely to silence my voice for Biblical truth on LGBT issues and to cause me pain and suffering for daring to speak against the “gay” agenda. I also thank Mat Staver and my Christian attorneys at Liberty Counsel, especially Harry Mihet and Roger Gannam, who took on and defeated SMUG’s team of 14 lawyers with exemplary skill and fortitude.

I thank Judge Michael Ponsor, as well, for overcoming his clear ideological bias enough to acknowledge the legal deficiency of SMUG’s case and bring it to a close – even though he had the option four years ago to dismiss this case following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that slammed the door shut on SMUG’S specious legal reasoning.

To be clear, the SMUG case was utterly fraudulent in law and in fact – from the premise that a handful of minor civil rights violations by government officials over a decade in Uganda constituted a “Crime Against Humanity” akin to Hitler’s atrocities, to the ridiculous claim that I masterminded the Ugandan officials actions, unsupported by even a shred of evidence. What I did was tell the documented truth about the history and tactics of the “gay” political movement, and urge a compassionate Biblical response, emphasizing rehabilitation and prevention for LGBT sufferers. That is all I have ever done in almost 30 years as a missionary to the global pro-family movement. No hatred. No advocacy of violence. No invasions of personal privacy. Just an insistence that homosexuality be denied normalization in the mainstream of society in favor of the natural family.

The enormity of Judge Ponsor’s decision to now grant my Motion for Summary Judgment is reflected in the excessive and inflammatory language he used to condemn my beliefs and writings in his ruling. I forgive him for that, especially since he knows it is merely conclusory rhetoric, without any supporting analysis or binding legal authority. There wasn’t any of the systematic prove-up of a serious District Court ruling. Instead he gave the left fodder for propaganda as a consolation prize – the sort of red-meat hyperbole one finds in a college newspaper editorial by a “gay” student activist — but he gave me the legal victory.

Indeed, given the expectation of his fellow travelers that he would put the “gay” agenda above the law, the vast amount of money and legal man-hours they invested to ensnare and harass me, and the extent to which they punish those whom they perceive as traitors to their cause, Judge Ponsor’s decision to finally release me from their trap may bear a personal cost at the hands of his LGBT “friends.” Granted, he could have avoided all the pain and pressure by simply recusing himself from the case at the outset by acknowledging that he has long been a vocal supporter of the “gay” cause, a past financial supporter of an organization that funds the plaintiff’s legal team, and that his former law clerk was a key part of that legal team. Still, what matters most is that he did the right thing in the end, and I am grateful.

Lastly, I thank the many thousands of friends and allies who have been praying for me and sending supportive messages since this bogus lawsuit began. My pledge to you is to redouble my efforts to speak the truth in love and to support and equip the pro-family movement around the world. Our vision for a family-centered society that tolerates but does not condone or normalize homosexuality and related disorders is a little clearer and brighter today.

Victory for American Pastor Falsely Accused of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’
Jun 6, 2017

SPRINGFIELD, MA – Late yesterday, Liberty Counsel client and American pastor Scott Lively won summary judgment against the foreign LGBT activists, Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), which sued Lively for sharing his biblical views on homosexuality during three visits to Uganda in 2002 and 2009. The summary judgment order, entered by U.S. District Judge Michael A. Ponsor, puts an end to SMUG’s attempt to silence Lively and others who speak internationally about the LGBT agenda.

SMUG is represented by the Center for Constitutional Rights, which has received funding from George Soros. CCR is located at 666 Broadway in New York, an apt address for such an organization that attempts to use international law to silence people of faith and attack Israeli government officials.

In a direct challenge to the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law, SMUG tried to create new and dangerous precedent using international “crimes against humanity”—akin to genocide and war crimes—by relying on the obscure Alien Tort Statute (ATS). In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court issued the deathblow to SMUG’s lawsuit by ruling that the ATS was never intended to allow a foreign citizen to sue a U.S. citizen in America alleging violation of some supposed international law. Scores of pending cases around the country were dismissed following the 2013 Supreme Court ruling in Kiobel, but the one not dismissed was the SMUG case. Judge Ponsor has a long history of support for the LGBT agenda and said he considers judges “the unappointed legislators of mankind.” Instead of dismissing the case in 2013, as it should have been, Ponsor opened the door for extensive and needless discovery.

Although Judge Ponsor’s order dismissed the case in 2017, for the same reasons he should have dismissed it in 2013 based on the Supreme Court precedent, he let his personal bias against pro-family values and support of the LGBT agenda slip into what should otherwise have been a straight legal opinion. Legally, Judge Ponsor had no choice on the law. The Supreme Court had clearly spoken. But what he did in his opinion is unbecoming by hurling names at Pastor Lively. None of the evidence supports any of the allegations.

After Judge Ponsor refused to dismiss the case in 2013, thousands of hours later, including 100 hours of depositions, and 40,000 pages of documents, SMUG failed to produce a shred of evidence of any conspiracy or persecution by Lively. Rather, the evidence showed that Lively, in a country where homosexuality has been illegal for decades, urged treatment of LGBT people with respect and dignity, and the liberalization of Uganda’s laws against homosexuality, even as he spoke in favor of biblical sexual morality and against the LGBT political agenda.

“This is a victory for the Constitution and the rule of law,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, “and all Christians should celebrate the end of a lawsuit intended only to intimidate an innocent pastor into silence. But the court’s open display of activism in deriding Lively’s beliefs reminds us of the threats American Christians continue to face from a judiciary that is increasingly hostile to any expression of biblical truth to a decaying culture,” said Staver.

“Once Judge Ponsor properly concluded that he had no jurisdiction over SMUG’s concocted claims, his only duty was to dismiss the case and send SMUG back to Uganda the same way it came—empty- handed,” added Horatio Mihet, Liberty Counsel’s Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Litigation Counsel. “Judge Ponsor was without any authority—constitutional, legal, or otherwise—to showcase his contempt for the family values advocated by Scott Lively. Judge Ponsor’s misinformed opinions about Scott Lively are not worth the paper they are written on,” said Mihet.

Pastor Lively commented: “I thank God for His deliverance from this outrageous and malicious litigation, designed solely to silence my voice for biblical truth on LGBT issues and to cause me pain and suffering for daring to speak against the ‘gay’ agenda. I also thank Mat Staver and my Christian attorneys at Liberty Counsel, especially Horatio Mihet and Roger Gannam, who took on and defeated SMUG’s team of 14 lawyers with exemplary skill and fortitude.” And, he continued, “I thank Judge Michael Ponsor, as well, for overcoming his clear ideological bias enough to acknowledge the legal deficiency of SMUG’s case and bring it to a close – even though he had the option four years ago to dismiss this case following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that slammed the door shut on SMUG’S specious legal reasoning.”

June is SSAD Shame Month in the US Navy

When the Greatest Generation came home in victory from the global contest of good vs evil we call World War II, America enjoyed a time of moral clarity like none other in our history. In the decade that followed – the 1950s –we reached the height of our civility as a nation. Families were intact and healthy, communities were safe, entertainment was clean and wholesome, business and commerce thrived, churches and synagogues were full and socially engaged, and while improvements in race relations were slow, the Black family was a model of health and stability. It wasn’t perfect, but by most measures it was the closest we ever got before the calamitous 1960s when enthusiastic moral degeneracy began to define us as a people and we entered the long, slow descent into social chaos that continues today.

In 1957, the United States Marine Corps published a document titled “Moral Leadership: The Protection of Moral Standards and Character Education Program,” a set of official guidelines for the U.S. Navy and Marines. It defined the Ten Commandments as “the codified moral law” to which every person is bound as the highest form of law (p.7). With astonishing prescience, it stated:

“Homosexuality should not be accepted as merely a psychiatric problem, or a ‘natural’ event in an ‘age of enlightenment.’ It should be related to promiscuity, bad moral environment, lewdness and indecency. Moral failures in one area of human behavior must ultimately invite disaster in other areas (p.27).” https://archive.org/details/MoralLeadership.

Jump ahead 60 years to 2017 and see how far our moral standards have fallen. On June 1st, the official Facebook page for the United States Navy posted an image of the its official seal superimposed over a rainbow flag under a banner reading “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month” and above a caption reading “Navy Celebrates 2017 LGBT Pride Month.” The accompanying message states: “The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community is a part of our #OneNavyTeam that contributes their diverse talents, skills and service to the strength of our #USNavy.”
https://www.facebook.com/USNavy/posts/10154516969952823

Same Sex Attraction Disorder is not “Gay” it is SSAD, and there is absolutely nothing to be proud of in “LGBT” history. It is commendable that President Trump did not issue an endorsement of the moral atrocity called “Gay Pride Month” as Obama did each year, but he sends a mixed message by allowing the US Navy to do so under his watch.

Let’s review some facts about LGBT history and remember just how far from “pride” it falls. Documentation of the facts cited below may be found here: http://www.scottlively.net/2015/08/14/nothing-to-celebrate-in-lgbt-history/

First, since President Trump identifies as a Christian, lets remember that LGBT history goes all the way back to the beginning of civilization, where it was the sin that caused God to incinerate Sodom and Gomorrah as a warning to all future generations (Genesis 19). Later, in the list of most egregious sins, which God explains were the reason the Canaanites had to be expelled by military force from the Holy Land, homosexuality is singled out for special condemnation as an “abomination” (toeva), the harshest term of judgement in the Bible (Leviticus 18). That condemnation is reaffirmed in the New Testament, where homosexuality is singled out as the sin of rebellion that epitomizes the “reprobate mind” and apostasy (Romans 1). Balancing judgement with mercy, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 assures homosexuals they can be healed by Christ and indicates that “ex-Gays” were part of the early church. Importantly, not a single verse of Scripture condones any form of homosexuality despite the tortuous intellectual gymnastics of pro-LGBT heretics who falsely claim otherwise.

Shifting to the secular perspective does not rescue the LGBT movement from the reality of its past. According to preeminent “gay” historian Gert Heckma PhD, of the Gay Studies department of the University of Amsterdam, the modern movement began with the infamous Marquis de Sade, for whom “sadism” is named. Sade was sentenced to death in 1772 for sodomizing his manservant and for poisoning prostitutes.

The first “gay rights” organization in the United States was the American chapter of the German-based Society for Human Rights (SHR), formed in Chicago by Henry Gerber in 1924. The next year the organization collapsed when Gerber, Vice President Al Menninger and another member were arrested on charges of sexual abuse of a boy. The most prominent member of the SHR’s German parent organization was Ernst Roehm, one of “gay” Adolf Hitler’s closest friends and later head of the dreaded Nazi S.A. or “Storm Troopers.”

The second “gay rights” group in America was started years later by Harry Hay, the champion of pederasty (adult men with teen boys), who was famous for marching in “Gay Pride” Parades on behalf of NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association. NAMBLA, incidentally, was formed by LGBT pioneer David Thorstad, who also formed the Gay Activist Alliance, the earliest version of today’s Human Rights Campaign (HRC) the world’s largest LGBT advocacy organization. HRC’s founder, by the way, was Terrence Bean, in the news in recent years over charges of sexual abuse of a teenage boy.

June was chosen for Gay Pride Month because June 28th is “Gay Pride Day, the anniversary of the Stonewall riots of 1969, when “gay” rioters violently attacked police officers responding to an incident involving a boy prostitute.

The LGBT movement was birthed in depravity and violence and has never changed. Behind the facade of ubiquitous pro-LGBT propaganda in the media and academia is a community of deeply troubled people, rife with drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, self-destructive behaviors, “hate crime” hoaxes, Machiavellian political manipulations at every level, pathological self-centeredness, and seething hatred for anyone who dares oppose the “gay” agenda. While many strugglers manage to live decent and orderly lives despite their dysfunction, far too many others do not, and all of society suffers for failing to face that fact openly. Their cynical exploitation and degradation of our military for political gain is just one example of this enormous problem.

This article is to remind our Commander in Chief that making America great again means restoring the standards and values that America held when it was at its best, as reflected in the Navy Guidelines of 1957 – NOT perpetuating the moral degeneracy that represents America’s worst, as reflected in the Navy’s Facebook page today.

Christian, Moslem and Jewish Common Ground: Reminding the Children of Abraham to Oppose the Common Enemy of Secular Humanism and Stand Firm for Family Values.

All across the western world the political left has begun propagandizing hard against “Islamophobia” in a multifaceted campaign to woo Moslems into their coalition of victim groups. My eyes were opened to this strategy a few months ago when I was asked to hold a seminar in Talent, Oregon on how to respond to a city resolution against “Islamophobia” that was a thinly veiled attack on Christians. Eyes opened, I quickly recognized that this is a coordinated global strategy, already deep-seated, with very serious implications. I’ve since come to suspect it was planned even before the “crisis” that flooded western nations with Moslem refugees.

In essence, the left is promising Moslems political power in exchange for acquiescing to the LGBT agenda and taking sides with the “gays” against Bible-believing Christians (and Torah-faithful Jews). The strategy appears to have worked in England and the European Union, where there are numerous pro-LGBT Moslem political leaders now in office, and it is spreading rapidly in America where it serves as another cynical Democrat maneuver to win elections.

I am reminded that the world’s most dangerous and aggressive “religion of global conquest” is not Islam but Secular Humanism – a religion rooted in Marxism that presumes a right of dominance over all competitors and which promotes an atheistic version of “religious tolerance” and “cultural diversity” as moral imperatives to neutralize dissent from its rule. It is the religion of globalism, and the common unifying ideology of the elites in every western nation.

This is not to discount the serious threat of radical Islam, but merely to highlight the relatively greater threat to Judeo-Christian civilization. It is the Secular Humanists who use sexual deviance to dissolve the foundations of the family centered social order designed by God, and who skillfully and continually pit the various religious and other factions of society against each other as a mechanism of control – for example, deliberately creating and inflaming monsters like Al Queda and ISIS to use as tools of “regime change.” Secular Humanism is, in my view, the religion of the Antichrist.

Last year my wife and I traveled to Kyrgyzstan where I lent support to a successful effort to amend its national constitution to define marriage as a man and a woman – which defeated a pro-LGBT campaign that appeared to be driven by the US Embassy and Soros-affiliated NGOs pushing Secular Humanist values. I didn’t realize till I arrived that my hosts were Moslems, but in our week-long stay with them, despite serious inherent theological differences, we came to find much in common and I decided to launch a project there that I had been developing conceptually over the past several years: The Natural Life Movement. My report on that is published here: http://www.scottlively.net/2016/10/19/experiment-in-kyrgyzstan-the-natural-life-movement/

My attitude was further changed in spending a day with a Moslem naval officer from Indonesia, who gave us a personal tour of the ancient Borobudur Bhuddist temple complex on the island of Java while we discussed theology and politics. I realized that not all Moslems fit the caricature we’ve allowed ourselves to adopt in conservative Christian circles – even if many or most do.

I believe limited and carefully defined Christian and Moslem cooperation is possible, and probably necessary to defend the natural family model all civilization depends upon. And to be clear, a prerequisite for that cooperation must be agreement on the Christian mandate of genuine compassion for people who suffer from homosexual and related dysfunctions even as we oppose their political agenda. Love the sinner, hate the sin.

Let me next address the knee-jerkers who suspect I’m just a babe-in-the-woods who needs to be set straight on the nature of Islam. As a Christian pastor who has traveled in several Moslem countries, I fully recognize the incompatibility of many aspects of Christian and Islamic theology and am not suggesting any sort of whitewashing of that, or compromise of faith principles. On the contrary, just as in dealing with any other belief system or ideology we must be able to differentiate the people from the beliefs or behavior we oppose. The guidance of Scripture has two parts: 1) Have no fellowship with the unfruitful WORKS of darkness, but rather reprove them (Eph 5:11), and 2) If it is possible on your part, live at peace with every PERSON (Romans 12:18).

Recently I proposed to my Kyrgyz friends that we create a Letter of Understanding on Christian/Moslem Cooperation regarding family values, and I have now begin the long process of study and “due diligence” necessary for a document of such serious import – a process that will involve foreign travel and on-site research and consultations over the next several months.

My first step is seeking counsel (Proverbs 15:22) and I began last week with an email to dozens of my friends and allies around the world. Two responses have been most helpful. A Catholic friend in London (in whose home Anne and I watched the BREXIT election returns last year) pointed me to the ongoing Moslem effort called “A Common Word,” here: http://www.acommonword.com/. And my Jewish friend Arthur Goldberg of the Jewish Institute for Global Awareness offered the following summary of how the Laws of Noah, common to all the Abrahamic religions, have been used to seek common ground despite serious differences:

“Because Noah is recognized as a prophet in the Koran, there is Muslim support for and compliance with the spread of the Seven Noahide Laws. This fact is evidenced by its specific acceptance by many Muslim leaders. For example, the Mayors of several Israeli Arab communities such as the Mayor of the Galilean City of Shefa-Amar (Shfaram) and the Abu Gosh Mayor (Salim Jaber), both of whom signed a declaration in 2004 committing to establish a more humane world by adopting the values of the seven Noahide Laws. Mohammed VI, the King of Morocco, has expressed the view in 2012 that these values truly unite civilizations. The spiritual leader of the Druze community in Israel, Sheikh Mowafak Tarif (in 2004) likewise recognized these seven principles as fundamental values of society. And, Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi, a leader of the Italian Muslim Assembly, unequivocally declared in 2006, ‘Islamic law holds within it the seven laws of Noah and can be taught correctly to the Muslims of the world.’ ”

I therefore issue the following statement of principle as the formal starting point for my pursuit of a broader Letter of Understanding:

“Notwithstanding deep theological and other differences, the people of the Abrahamic faiths strongly agree that homosexuality and related forms of sexual and gender deviance must be not be legitimized in public policy, but opposed through non-violent means that respect the inherent value of persons who struggle with these reversible disorders.”

My email is sdllaw@gmail.com for anyone who cares to comment constructively on the topic. Meanwhile, I urge the adoption and promotion of this statement of principle informally.

Antisemitism and America’s Present Crisis

Antisemitism is a plague on the earth, and this article will explain why, but we must first precisely define “Semite” to identify what “antisemitism” actually is. “Jew-hatred” is probably the most commonly accepted shorthand version, invoking a tragic and ugly historical reality in the western world. But the deeper meaning of “antisemitism” is profoundly spiritual and actually indicts many Torah-faithless Jews who unrighteously wield the term as weapon. Their power to smear others with the antisemite brush suppresses scrutiny and criticism of their beliefs and acts that defy God and defile His Creation. Their blatant abuse of that power is itself a form of antisemitism in that it breeds resentment and hostility in the society that all Jews must then suffer.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), for example, is a predominantly Jewish organization. At its founding in 1971, it’s target was hate groups like Nazis and the KKK, both strongly antisemitic by anyone’s definition. Understandably, it’s donor base is reportedly largely Jewish also. Like many Christians, I supported the SPLC goals in those days, perceiving that my Jewish spiritual cousins were acting upon shared Biblical values. Later, however, when the SPLC began to define opposition to homosexuality as hate, Bible believing Christians and Torah-believing Jews were equated with Nazis, and my ministry was libeled as a hate group, as was the group “Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality” (JONAH) which the SPLC successfully sued and shut down in liberal New Jersey.

Public awareness of its malign transformation grew slowly, but today the name SPLC is widely associated with the militant defense of homosexual sodomy and the rejection of God and sexual normalcy. The Christian majority, whose prior sympathy for the SPLC helped it amass its now legendary financial war-chest, is shocked that those resources are now being used to persecute those most faithful to the Torah truths that once defined us as co-stewards of America’s Judeo-Christian cultural consensus.

This brings us to the true definition of “antisemite.” Like so many terms of the God-hating left, it is actually a euphemism as they use it. They obscure the meaning to give it the broadest possible effect as a tool of social manipulation while providing the least possible clarification of its limits and underlying logic.

Technically, a Semite (or Shemite) is any genetic descendant of Shem, first born son of Noah, so a literal, etymological meaning for antisemitism is a non-starter. A sizable percentage of genetic Semites in the world today are, unfortunately, Jew-hating Moslems.

Antisemitism might feasibly be reduced to “hatred of the descendants of the 12 Tribes of Israel,” but that lends too much weight to genetics. There are a great many Jews not of Jacob’s bloodline.

No, to be precise, “Semite” is a religious designation, delineating the followers of Jehovah God (Yahweh) who descend from Jacob/Israel, or were incorporated into Yahweh worship by conversion, and who received God’s promises as passed down, via Isaac, from Abraham, the first person named in the Torah as a Hebrew. Importantly, referencing Genesis 14, Shem is identified by ancient rabbis in the Talmud as Melchizedek, whom the New Testament affirms was “King of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham and blessed him as he returned from defeating the kings” who had kidnaped Abraham’s nephew Lot (Hebrews 7:1). A school of Christian theological opinion based partly on the Talmud holds that the priestly Order of Melchizedek began with Adam’s son Seth and continued generation by generation to Shem and onward to Christ (Hebrews 6:20).

As a pastor, I teach what I call Whole Bible Christianity, in which understanding the New Testament requires a thorough understanding of the Old Testament, and a Hebrew rather than a Greek cultural perspective of both. I hold the Bible as literally true, which means I absolutely reject man-created doctrines in which the Christian church is deemed to have replaced Israel in Biblical interpretation (“replacement theology”). With Paul, I warn Christian believers against that falsehood: “I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be!…if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you” (Romans 11:1-18).

By my analysis, a “Semite” cannot therefore be defined by DNA, but only by loyalty to God, and must include both Jews and Christians who are faithful to the principles of His Torah, while excluding those who aren’t.  (This is not to say that there aren’t plenty of Jew-haters in this world who don’t care one bit about the spiritual reality — but it should be important to Christians and Jews).

“Replacement theology” has produced terrible consequences over the centuries: many utterly indefensible, often horrific persecutions of Jews stain the history of the Christian west. These understandably created among the Jews a deep-seated culture of self-protection that manifests in a variety of ways today, including the pursuit of top-down social and political controls through such key systems as central banks and mass media. It has also sometimes manifested in the US as sabotage of Christian culture through short-sighted cultural maneuvers, such as working to convert Jefferson’s “separation of church and state” metaphor into constitutional law, subverting the constitution itself. The public is not blind to these things, though many fear to discuss, which breeds wild-eyed conspiracy theories and further antisemitism.

Worst and most destructive of all is the overt promotion of sexual perversion, the insane ultimate outworking of the fear-driven impulse to secularize society that, for example, the SPLC’s fundraising so skillfully exploits. Inexcusably, and inexplicably, that has become a defining cultural goal of many American Jews (and leftist Christians) in media, academia, government and the business world.

My recent DNA profile tells me I’m an ethnic Semite, with a high genetic correlation to Sephardic Jews and a lesser connection to Ashkenazi Jews. My theology tells me I’m a spiritual Semite through Christ. I’ve always had a high affinity for righteous Jews, quite a number of whom I’ve considered among my best friends and allies over the years. The prolific Rabbi Samuel Dresner, from whom I learned so much, hired me to rework his manuscript The Case Against Homosexuality: A Jewish View for publication. I dedicated my own book The Poisoned Stream, to the indomitable Jewish cultural crusader Dr. Howard Hurwitz of New York City. My most famous work, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, was co-authored by my great long-term Orthodox Jewish friend Kevin E. Abrams. And I’ve had a long working relationship with the stalwart rabbis of Torah Jews for Decency.

Relying on all of this for my authority (if the plain truth is not enough), I issue a challenge to the American Jewish community to stop ignoring the antisemitism coming from your own people. Stop funding the SPLC hate group. Stop using your enormous power and resources to undermine Biblical values. Start recognizing the extent to which your rejection of your own Torah’s guidance needlessly fosters resentment and hostility toward you.

You have greatly influenced the rise of secularism and its consequences. I invite you to help undo that damage through the mutual reestablishment of our Judeo-Christian moral heritage.

Beautyful Normalcy and Beastly Perversion: Persuading Disney to Honor its Legacy

I have a confession to make. While a part of the Christian world is pushing a boycott of Disney Corporation’s remake of Beauty and the Beast, my wife and I spent today at Disneyland, and we didn’t even have our grandchildren with us. Why? Because we wanted to have a day away from all the constant reminders of perversion in our society in a place that is absolutely 100% affirming of heterosexual normalcy. Disneyland’s slogan is “The Happiest Place on Earth,” but in reality it should be called the “The Straightest Place on Earth.” There is literally no other large commercial venture on this planet so utterly family oriented, or so packed with families wanting to be together there that it sometimes produces pedestrian traffic jams in the park.

Disney Corporation’s cash cow would in fact quickly run dry if its executives ever dared to convert Walt Disney’s family friendly life’s work to reflect leftist sexual values. The proof is in the pudding. There is not now, nor will there ever be a line of 75 little girls waiting in the hot sun in princess costumes to get their picture with Bruce “Kaitlyn” Jenner, as there were today to meet Princess Arial. Thank God that after more than five decades of anti-family leftist control of American culture, little girls still want to be like Cinderella and little boys still want to be like Peter Pan. There may be a growing number of troubled children and teens falling into the clutches of the LGBT “community” – a huge problem – but in the big picture the percentages are still minuscule, and they are starkly contrasted with the vast numbers of kids growing up to be just as heterosexually normal as Mom and Dad.

Knowing their own business model, why would high-ranking Disney officials allow the leftist activists among them to diddle around the edges of Walt Disney’s legacy with stupid little pro-“gay” symbolic gestures?

Christian leaders have often asserted that it’s because they can’t help themselves. They’re simply compelled to push the LGBT envelope at all costs. That may be true at their subsidy, ABC, which just had yet another overtly homosexual television program crash and burn. But it’s not true at Disneyland or Disney Studios, no matter how many employees may have sexual dysfunction issues.

No, the truth is ironically a backhanded affirmation of normalcy. The Disney Execs are deliberately and cynically exploiting the “freak-show” nature of LGBT culture. They’re trying to create some controversy, because that’s what attracts public attention – the golden ticket of marketing – without overly agitating the average American Mom. It’s a delicate balancing act but they’ve worked out a pretty successful formula: provoking fundamentalist Christians like me into reacting to things that the majority of secular and nominally Christian people will think are not all that bad. And like fish we usually rise to the bait – launching yet another boycott with almost zero chance of success; marginalizing ourselves in the eyes of the majority who might agree to a point on the larger principle, but not enough to inconvenience themselves; and handing another marketing victory to our cultural adversaries.

I’m not against boycotts per se, and have participated in many of them. I understand and share the desire not to enrich any company that’s using the profits from my purchases in a way that undermines my values in the society. But when a strategy isn’t working, or when, as with Disney, our adversaries have learned how to exploit our predictable tactics to their financial advantage, it’s time to go back to the drawing board.

Beauty and the Beast is enjoying a massive opening weekend as well it should as one of the greatest heterosexual love stories of all time – not because of any incidental “gay” character, but in spite of it. Not only is the heroine of the story the very epitome of feminine sweetness and nurturing compassion, and the hero the epitome of masculine strength and virtue, but their relationship reenacts the essential truth of civilization: that the role of healthy, normal women is to civilize men and steer their masculinity away from animalistic selfishness toward the care and protection of their family.

The social commentator George Gilder noted this in his landmark book “Men and Marriage” (1995) “The crucial process of civilization is the subordination of male sexual impulses and biology to the long-term horizons of female sexuality. The overall sexual behavior of women in the modern world differs relatively little from the sexual life of women in primitive societies. It is male behavior which must be changed to create a civilized order….In creating civilization, women transform male lust into love; channel male wanderlust into jobs, homes, and families; link men to specific children; rear children into citizens; change hunters into fathers; divert male will to power into a drive to create.” This is the same truth in fairy tale form in Beauty and the Beast!

Disney has just released one of the most blatantly heterosexist movies of all time, and will profit enormously from it! Best of all, it is inculcating founder Walt Disney’s family-friendly values in another generation of children, who are also learning another essential truth: that the “gay” character is usually the bad guy. Why would any Christian boycott this film?

No amount of pandering to or funding of the “gay” lobby from its profits can undo Disney’s betrayal of leftist ideology here. What is more, Beauty and the Beast is just one asset in the entire treasury of pro-family films that Disney depends upon for its financial survival.

I suggest that instead of boycotting and opposing Disney, we Christians push the other direction. Lets use the Disney collection, all of its plots, themes and characters as examples of our values in a million letters to the editor, talk show call-ins, and conversations at church, school and work. By the sheer volume of our voices, let’s make Disney publicly acknowledge how much it depends for its success on the pro-family values it’s treasury of assets projects into to the world every single day. What can they do in response? Create new “gay” versions to spite us? Not on your life.

A symbol of Christianity is the fish, but the Bible tells us that in dealing with the world we are instead to be wise as serpents. Let’s stop taking the bait every time some leftist media marketer calls us posing a concerned citizen, trying to get some free publicity from our overreaction. Lets be smart for a change and force the giant to fight for us by sitting on his shoulders to shout the truths he cannot afford to deny.

Russians, Resets and Recusal

Recusal is the act of voluntarily taking oneself out of the seat of decision making on a matter in which there is an appearance of bias that could undermine public confidence in one’s decisions. Recusal does not equate to guilt, only to the perception of bias which may or may not be accurate, and amounts to sacrificing oneself to preserve the authority and dignity of the court. Only the most law-abiding of people, like Senator Jeff Sessions, recuse themselves when the perception of bias is false. What one sacrifices is the legal right to keep control of the matter in one’s own hands, which is an act of virtue and thus why Democrats almost never do it.

Justices Gingsberg and Kagan didn’t have just the appearance of bias when they refused to recuse themselves on the “gay marriage” case at the Supreme Court: they had actual and blatant conflict of interest in having performed “gay weddings” while the case was pending! Judge Vaughn Walker didn’t have just an appearance of bias when he struck down protections for authentic marriage in CA’s Prop 8 case, he had actual conflict of interest in that he was a homosexual who only disclosed his dysfunction after retirement. Loretta Lynch didn’t have just the appearance of bias in the Hillary Clinton criminal investigation, she had actual conflict of interest in meeting with Slick Willie Clinton, her husband, while the matter was pending. Despite this, none of these Democrats recused themselves. These are only four examples of hundreds from just the past decade.

The perception of bias in Attorney General Sessions’ recusal is not only a false perception, it is based on his response to an bogus intelligence report invented by Obama for the purpose of discrediting the Trump administration. Obama has set up a shadow government for that purpose as I predicted here back on November 17th : http://www.scottlively.net/2016/11/17/world-war-d-part-2/ : and January 3rd : http://www.scottlively.net/2017/01/03/obamas-hitlerian-departure/

At the root of the Obama strategy and propaganda is the false premise that the Russian government is an evil America-hating regime that seeks to weaken or control the United States through James Bondesqe subversion and spycraft. Back in the 1960s and 70, when the liberals were politically aligned with the Russians, the Russian-based Soviet Communist bloc WAS in fact an evil empire, and DID work to subvert America. Indeed, the Cultural Marxism dominant in our university system and mainstream media attest to their success. Today, however, the Russian Federation is socially and fiscally conservative and strongly anti-Marxist.

Obama’s strategy and tactics depend on Americans general ignorance of the dramatic reversal of Russian culture since Ronald Reagan facilitated a Christian revival in what is now the Russian Federation and various independent nations in Eastern Europe. When the Berlin Wall came down, the churches torn down by the Obama-style Soviet Communists were rebuilt and, after a couple of decades of gangsterism due to social disorder, today’s primary cultural influence is not Marxism (as it is in the Democrat Party USA) but Orthodox Christianity.

I am speaking from first-hand observation. I’ve been to Russia three times over the past dozen years including a ten day mission trip to the Russian far east in 2006, a fifty-city speaking tour in 2007 through Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia (from Siberia all the way to St. Petersburg) and I was in Moscow in 2013 where I was interviewed on Russian national television by the Orthodox Patriarch’s right hand man for family issues. In 2011 I did a mission trip to Moldova and helped the 95% pro-family population stop their US-influenced government from sneaking through a major pro-homosexuality law whose passage was timed to match the arrival of Joe Biden. Since 2013 I have visited Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Kyrgyzstan, helping the latter protect marriage in its national constitution in 2016.

I know from whereof I speak: ideologically and culturally the Russian people are the closest match to American conservatives and populists in the entire world, and it is only the constant Obama/McCain/Soros/MSM/Deep State anti-Russian propaganda that keeps the Americans from seeing it. Yet, I fault the conservatives and populists themselves in this, since the very people they’re trusting for news on such matters as Syria, Ukraine, the US election and Russia itself are the one’s they know for a fact ALWAYS lie about cultural and spiritual issues here at home.

I can’t speak to Putin’s character pro or con, but I know he’s a more faithful representative of the will of the Russian people than any of our US presidents from HW Bush through Obama, and I certainly don’t trust the people who are poisoning western minds against him. If anything, their hostility to Putin should enhance his credibility among conservatives.

Sure there are legitimate geopolitical factors at play that cannot be ignored: such as Russia’s alliance with terrorist Shiite Moslem Iran, which blew up our embassy in Beirut and sponsors Hamas and Hezbollah, but that’s hardly worse than the US alliance with Sunni Moslem Saudi Arabia from where most of the 911 attackers originated (and whose brand of Islam spawned both Al Queda and ISIS). There’s also the conflict between “our” oligarchs vs “their” oligarchs who are competing for control of various oil reserves and pipelines (perhaps the biggest factor behind the Syrian proxy war). But a strong US/Russian partnership on global issues could solve those problems.

If I were President Trump I would do three things to turn the tables on Obama’s shadow government and the deep state.

First, I would take on the Russian issue head-on and declare a new and better reset, Trump-style .

Second, I would rehire General Flynn and put him in charge of draining the swamp in the federal bureaucracy.

Third, I would ask pro-America/pro-Russia Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary to host a summit meeting of Presidents Trump, Putin, Prime Minister Netanyahu and like-minded world leaders to discuss a new global alliance in which natural resources are shared without warfare, basic human rights to religious freedom and family values are prioritized, and the Moslem world is forced to end terrorism by its adherents and to recognize Israel’s right to exist.

The world would be a far better place under such an overtly Judeo-Christian alliance than what we have now under the greedy, Godless globalists.

Milo and the “Stockholm Syndrome” of Sodom

In the mid-1970s, America was introduced to “Stockholm Syndrome” when 19 year old Berkeley student and heiress Patty Hearst was transformed from kidnap victim to domestic terrorist by identifying with her captors. Stockholm Syndrome is trauma-induced mental enslavement to the person or group causing the trauma, and Hearst has ever since been its poster child. Her identity hijacked, she joined her Simbionese Liberation Army kidnappers and eventually went to jail for crimes she committed voluntarily in that false persona.

In the unfolding spectacle of the Milo Yiannopoulos pederasty scandal, America is being introduced to a far more potent and common form of this phenomenon: Sodom Syndrome. Like millions of boys through the centuries, 14-year old Milo was recruited into homosexuality by an adult homosexual predator. He then justified his molester, “Father Michael,” in his own mind and recently in unwise but candid media comments. Very typically of adult homosexual men who experienced similar recruitment, Milo portrayed Father Michael as a sort-of coming-of-age mentor, and his young teen self as a consensual partner, fully competent to make his own decisions. (Historically, most male leaders of the “gay” movement share this profile).

In response to the scandal, Milo has recast himself as a helpless victim. While this seems cynical, he actually IS a victim to a far greater extent than most people, and even he himself, realize. I believe what Milo experienced at 14 was Sodom Syndrome, and like Patty Hearst to the SLA, his identity was subsumed into the LGBT culture by psycho/sexual trauma, reinforced by associating sexual climax with his predator’s orientation. Its all about brain chemistry and subconscious coping mechanisms, not free choice – at least not at first.

Like Milo I had a bad relationship with my father, and ventured into the world at an early age. An alcoholic from age 12 and a pothead/drug addict from 14 I lived a vagabond/hitchhiker lifestyle that lasted over ten years and spanned the continent. As such I was a ripe target for recruitment by predators and was solicited by “gay” recruiters countless times. To be fair, only rarely did these men attempt force and fortunately none was successful. To be clear, I never experienced same-sex attraction and didn’t succumb to “gay” recruitment, though I don’t believe anyone is immune to Sodom Syndrome.

When I was about 14 or 15, I spent an afternoon smoking pot with a “gay” guy in his 20’s who explained that young people during puberty have a very fluid sexual identity and how easy it had been for him to turn young teen boys into sex partners. I was very non-judgmental in those days, and didn’t think twice about it, nor similar conversations I had with other homosexuals (though few were that forthright). A confirming study I later saw said 25% of young teens suffer same-sex confusion but most grow out of it naturally by the end of adolescence.

After I had surrendered my life to Christ, been delivered from my addictions and started a family of my own, I saw the world in a wholly different light. A nineteen-year old man, who had “come out” as “gay” after being molested seven or eight years earlier, himself molested a four-year-old boy. I was close to both families and watched that child change from sweet and loveable to hyperactive and rage-driven. He never became homosexual himself to my knowledge, but never really recovered either and now in his 40s lives a miserable life of addiction and crime.

Later as my compassion grew for homosexuals, we took in a repentant ex-“gay” who was dying of AIDS. Sonny lived with us for the last year of his life and I was with him when he died. He attributed his homosexuality to being raped at age seven in a YMCA men’s room by a friend of his father. Sonny’s form of Sodom Syndrome compelled him to seek “gay” sex in settings with the strong smell of urine. He never chose to be that way and expressed deep shame in it, but even in his last days in Christ, the pattern burned into his brain by the youthful trauma remained the identity of his flesh while his mind and spirit were freed only through sexual abstinence.

In the earliest days of my ministry I had the pleasure of making friends with Anthony Falzerano, a leader of the ex-“gay” movement. He said the most common denominator in boys who get recruited is a kind-of “father-hunger” due to troubled family relationships, and that this is easily recognized by predators on the prowl because they suffered it themselves. He and other ex-“gay” leaders showed me by example that the cure to homosexual dysfunction is restoration of male normalcy through long-term healthy relationships with fatherly mentors.

My ex-“gay” friend Richard of Portland, OR sought me out in this way after the predator who made him his houseboy at age 12 (his piano teacher) kicked him out and replaced him when he got too old. My fatherly help blessed Richard through some rough times and gave me personal experience in mentoring ex-“gays.” He never went back and is doing well today.

I’m frequently accused by pro-LGBT leftists of being a suppressed homosexual myself because my life’s work has been opposing their agenda. That’s not true of me, but I’m not insulted by the suggestion because I don’t despise homosexuals like they assume. I do this work because I am a Christian saved by grace, trained for and assigned to this work by my Savior. I do it because I recognize that the sin of Sodom is the most destructive force in human civilization, singularly unique in it’s condemnation in the Bible. I do it because I don’t want to see any more young people lose their innate heterosexual identity to the Sodom Syndrome. Make no mistake – the problem is growing like runaway cancer because we’ve allowed it to go mainstream.

Past criticisms notwithstanding, my heart grieves for Milo Yiannopoulos, because I see what I might myself have become under different circumstances and it is hard to watch anyone crash and burn so spectacularly. What Milo really needs is his Father in Heaven, of course, but he also needs a Dad to lead him out of the darkness of perversion back into the light of normalcy. I pray that this crisis will open his life and heart to both. I’m personally willing to help him in that, if he doesn’t have anyone else. I also pray that Milo’s suffering will not be in vain, but truly open America’s eyes to Sodom Syndrome and it’s own sin in pretending – as a way to avoid confronting hard truths and harsh push-back — they’re all just “born that way” and can’t be cured.

The Illusion of Chaos

I’m encouraging Christians not to fall prey to the false-reality being spun by the elites against the Trump administration and our nation. It’s just an illusion now but could become reality if God’s people forget how the Deceiver works, and who’s really in charge. If we let the spooks deceive us into stampeding, they’ll run us right off the cliff. They’re called spooks for a reason.

“The Gates of Hell cannot prevail against the church.” The spiritual truth behind that scripture is that Satan has no power against a person who steadfastly abides in Christ. The Evil One can only do what God allows him to do, but that latitude includes the right to try to trick us into exercising our own self-will self-destructively. God measures our faith in Him by whether we cling to His truth or believe the lies. Thus, Satan’s most potent weapon is deception – especially fear-inducing illusions that tempt us to run away instead of standing firm, voluntarily giving up the ground that our adversary could never otherwise take from us.

As a veteran pro-family activist I know this principle intimately. Through testing and occasional failure in earlier years, I now understand and embrace the corollary scripture “therefore, having done all to stand, STAND.” Indeed, after more than a quarter century of taking everything the “gay” movement could throw at me, culminating in the current bogus federal lawsuit for “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching against homosexuality in Uganda, my ministry has become a symbol of courage under fire internationally.

They can’t stop me from speaking the plain truth in love, but, importantly, that doesn’t stop them either, because the fabrications and misrepresentations they spin about me and the presumption that I am hurt by them, puts fear into others, and causes them to compromise the truth or remain silent so as not to suffer the same fate. (The truth is that standing up to their persecution has caused me to be spiritually blessed beyond what I ever thought possible.)

Satan is not creative. His strategies and tactics are tediously predictable, once you recognize them. Of course, it’s not easy to stand firm when it seems like you’re about to be engulfed by a mountainous rushing wall of fire, but if you do stand firm the illusion vaporizes on contact and you realize it was a lie. Once you’ve stood up to that wall a few times it loses most of its effect on you.

No group is better at this satanic strategy than the “gay” political movement, which was an unstated reason why open homosexuals were never allowed into the intelligence agencies in the history of the nation, a policy upheld by the none other than the 9th Circuit US Appeals Court in the 1990 case, “High Tech Gays v. Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office.” (Indicating just how dangerous to our nation the idea of homosexual spooks was even to the farthest left-wing judges in the country: J. Edgar Hoover was by no means an anomaly.) But then along came Bill Clinton who issued Executive Order 12968 on August 2, 1995, opening the intelligence agencies and top secret security clearance to the Machiavellian “gay” network.

That policy continued under W. Bush, and when Obama came into office the floodgates really flew open. My guess based solely on my knowledge of the “gay” movement and Obama’s personal priorities, is that the today’s alphabet soup of intelligence agencies could easily be condensed to just four letters: LGBT, since that’s almost certainly who’s driving the agenda evidenced in the ongoing treasonous sabotage of the Trump administration.

More critical to the process of creating the false reality by which the far left has steered American public policy for decades is the mainstream media. Again, an industry so heavily dominated by “gays” and homosexualists that there is no longer even a pretense of balance on stories related to LGBT issues. Pro-family views are openly equated with racism and denied inclusion in news reporting. That same subjectivity and arrogance drives their narrative on their entire slate of issues.

My greatest concern about the Trump administration is that secular-minded advisors will allow self-defeating politically-correct assumptions to convince them to leave the “gays” in the swamp, assuming that will win them points with the ultra-powerful LGBT lobby and the larger progressive community it dominates, as well as crossover libertarian and secularist constituencies.

My prayer is that President Trump will awaken to the correlation of anti-Trump radicalism on the left with the “gay” movement and realize that on virtually any issue one can name the most aggressive liars and agitators are homosexuals and their closest surrogates, and that these people absolutely, positively cannot be placated (just ask the Boy Scouts of America). In other words, there is a spiritual dimension to the culture war in which the key common denominator is LGBT affiliation.

I call on Mr. Trump to adopt my earlier recommendation to establish a “Separation of LGBT and State” as outlined here: http://www.scottlively.net/2017/01/22/the-separation-of-lgbt-and-state-how-the-trump-administration-should-handle-non-traditional-sexual-lifestyles/

I further urge him to take the bold and courageous step of revoking Executive Order 12968 and restoring the ban on “gays” in the intelligence agencies as it existed until 1990.

As to my fellow Christian believers, I urge a steadfast resolve to back every policy of the Trump administration that works to restore America to her former greatness, regardless of the illusion of chaos being spun about them by the Obama/Soros/Media shadow government and their agents in the federal bureaucracy and on the streets. Lets not be stampeded away from Trump by the very propagandists and social engineers who consistently misrepresent us just as egregiously.

America’s Crisis of Judicial Ethics: A Call to Action

lady-justice-blindfolded_55d3389af74020f6

The entirely biased rulings on President Trump’s immigration executive order by leftist federal “Judge” James Robart of Seattle, upheld by three-”judges” of the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, is unfortunately not shocking. It follows on the heels of the utterly lawless Obergefell decision in which two “justices” of the US Supreme Court refused to recuse themselves despite having performed “gay weddings” during the pendency of the case, the most egregious abuse of judicial ethics in the history of the high court.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan might just as well have taken a sledge hammer to the blindfolded statute of Lady Justice, since they reduced the presumption of impartiality in our courts to rubble on that day. Robart and his comrades salted through our judicial system, were given “carte blanch” by the Obergefell majority to substitute their personal ideology for the rule of law, and a new era of increased leftist judicial tyranny and obstructionism began.

The sad state of our judiciary is one of the most disheartening consequences of America’s continuing moral degeneration. Corruption and abuse of power has always existed in human legal systems, as the reference to the “unjust judge” in Luke 18:6 attests. But a hallmark of an advanced Christian society is a truly impartial judiciary and America was once the gold standard in this. I emphasize “Christian” society (by which I mean Judeo-Christian) because true justice is only possible when the law it administers is itself clear, rational and immutable. Only the Bible truly meets that criteria, which is why the concept of “stare decisis” (binding legal precedent) originated in the common law of Christian Europe.

Stare decisis, the Latin phrase meaning “to stand by what is already decided,” is the bedrock on which stands the Rule of Law as contrasted with the Rule of Man. It originated in the middle ages in England (when the Roman symbol of Lady Justice was first blindfolded to emphasize equal justice under law) and, by virtue of the eventual global dominance of the British Empire, has shaped or strongly influenced nearly every system of jurisprudence in the world.

The Rule of Law presupposes that judges are instruments of Almighty God for resolving disputes, setting aside their own opinions and biases to be a conduit of His will, and thus when one judge has ruled on a matter, that matter is settled, since God doesn’t change. The entire system depends upon the integrity of the judges, and their submission to the Law Above the Law. It is not surprising, therefore, that the erosion of judicial ethics in America parallels the rise of secularism in our society, and is most clearly observed where issues of Biblical morality are at stake.

I first encountered the crisis of judicial ethics as a newly awakened pro-life activist in the late 1980s when Judge Nely Johnson was forced to recuse herself from the case of the so-called “Lovejoy Eight” in Portland Oregon. She had jailed these eight pro-lifers indefinitely, granting them freedom only if they agreed to pledge never again to “trespass” at an abortion clinic. It wasn’t the blatant unconstitutionality of her order that stopped her, only the public disclosure of her election campaign fundraising letter that began “Dear Pro-Choice Supporter.”

My next encounter was a 1992 battery lawsuit against me personally by a lesbian activist from Just Out magazine who set me up in a trap called “Bird Dogging.” http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/10/17/exclusive-okeefe-video-sting-exposes-bird-dogging-democrats-effort-to-incite-violence-at-trump-rallies/ . The goal was to publicly smear me because I was the spokesman for a pro-family ballot initiative (Measure 9) seeking to amend the Oregon constitution to block special rights minority status based on homosexuality. The corrupt Multnomah County court system appointed a corporate lawyer from NIKE corporation (a strong opponent of the ballot measure) as my judge.

My “sure-fire win” in the case was the Assistant District Attorney’s written report rejecting criminal charges (and consequently civil liability) because the self-described “Bull Dyke” confessed she was criminally trespassing during the incident. However, when the ADA suffered a memory lapse in court, the “Judge” threatened my newly licensed attorney with sanctions if he tried to show the jury the report itself and he caved. Thus I lost and became the subject of a million-dollar “October Surprise” ad buy of the No on 9 committee characterizing me as a Nazi-like lesbian-beater. That was the first of five major lawsuits brought against me by LGBT activists and the reason I became a lawyer myself.

As an attorney, I encountered more serious ethical breaches by judges, the most egregious being the ruling by Judge Vaughn Walker (the guy who came out as a homosexual after ruling against California’s marriage-protecting Measure 8 and then retiring). Walker said the free speech rights of my two African American female clients, employees of the City of Oakland, were “vanishingly small,” and upheld the city‘s refusal to let them form a Good News Employee Association as an alternative to the Gay and Lesbian Employees Association. The pinnacle of my career as a constitutional lawyer was arguing their appeal before a three judge panel of the Ninth Circuit, held in special session at Stanford University, so these leftist “judges” could give Stanford law students a good look at how Christian conservatives can be denied constitutional rights with impunity. They then left the decision “unpublished,” knowing it would never survive use as a precedent for other cases. Very shrewd but thoroughly unethical.

There’s a lot of hand-wringing by conservatives about the federal judiciary today but this is not in insoluble problem. A vigorous utilization of its impeachment powers by a resolute U.S. Congress can save us from these tyrants, and a pitchforks-and-torches level of populist anger can put the steel in the spine of our federal legislators to make it happen.

I further call on the U.S. Justice Department to immediately publish a statement outlining the fundamentals of judicial ethics to which American jurists are subject — simple and straightforward enough to give citizens a standard to measure judges’ conduct against — and to create a new division of the department to investigate breaches of judicial ethics and issue public reports on their conclusions, and to recommend public sanctions including impeachment to the Congress in cases of serious violations.

Ethics only fail when judges face no consequences. They must be held accountable by the people, through pressure on the other branches of government!

Milo Yiannopoulos and the Rise of American Nazism, Part 3

Judgment, Mercy and Milo Yiannopoulos

In today’s hyper-frenetic news cycle, the Berkeley rioting against Milo Yiannopoulos is already fading from public memory. But we haven’t seen the last of leftist riots, nor of Trojan Horse “gay conservatives” trying to infiltrate and commandeer the conservative movement in this season of political turmoil.

Though I am both an attorney and a pastor, my articles generally address public policy issues from a Bible-based social activist perspective rather than an overtly evangelical one. This time I’m putting my Pastor hat on to address the spiritual aspect of what we’ve been witnessing both in the street activism of the political left and the insidious and little-acknowledged “gay theology” movement in the church and culture (of which Milo is a part, wittingly or not).

The Berkeley rioters (and their Soros-funded Social Marxist comrades across the world) and the LGBT movement (in every one of its shape-shifting forms) share a central common denominator: Satanic Delusion. All of them believe terrible self-destructive and self-degrading lies about themselves, their opponents, their society and God Himself.

Consider just how awful it must be to live in Milo Yiannopoulos’s world, condemned not only to an ugly and dangerous lifestyle of extreme self-debasement, but compelled by his demons to parade his shame publicly and aggressively: a walking mockery of the God who made him.

Consider how dark and hopeless is the worldview that sees the violent disruption of civil society, the killing of police officers and the open advocacy of the assassination of our President as valid social action – especially after decades of insisting that anything less than full commitment to “tolerance” as a central social value amounts to an actionable “hate crime.” How pitiably insane – literally – these fellow creations of God have become. How desperately needful they are of our fervent intercessory prayer.

In his 1960 masterwork, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, William L. Shirer said of the homosexual men who founded and built the Nazi Party that they “quarreled and feuded as only men of unnatural sexual inclinations, with their peculiar jealousies, can.” That observation is particularly helpful in explaining the fierceness of the hostilities and outright Brownshirt tactics seen between the so-called “gay conservatives” and the heavily “gay”-laden ranks of the radical left. They’re playing for the same anti-Biblical team but fight amongst themselves like Orcs and Uraki. The judgement they render upon each other is venomous and merciless.  It’s a predictable manifestation of their self-obsessed satanic ideology.

Bible-believing Christians and Torah Faithful Jews have a duty to correctly discern and oppose anti-social movements and conduct, which gives us authority to judge right and wrong and act accordingly for the good of all. Too often in the past we have neglected that duty out of a fear of political correctness, or of being attacked as “moralists” or “bigots.” Now that the enemies of Judeo-Christian culture have abandoned their pretext of seeking “tolerance” and are actively attempting to enforce their warped morality through violence and terror, shouldn’t we stop trying to placate them by self-suppressing our own righteous authority?

The culture war has always been at its root a spiritual war fought in the physical world. The weapons of our warfare aren’t physical, but mighty spiritual ones: prayer, truth-telling, and leading by selfless example. Considering the circumstances I suggest it is time to bring those weapons to bear more forcefully and consistently, starting with a prayer assault on the demonic agents at work in the lives of Milo Yiannopoulos and the rioters.

Milo Yiannopoulos and the Rise of American Nazism, Part 2

In part one of this article I wrote the following: Is the leftist claim that Yiannopoulos represents Nazism credible? Yes! (as to him but not yet as to Trump). Because they know what conservatives do not: that Nazism was always about Nationalist “butch” homosexuals wresting power from Communist/Socialist “femme” homosexuals, first in the streets and then in the seats of government and the treasury. (Anti-Semitism was only incidental to the Nazi agenda for the first dozen or so years.) In that sense “Milo” represents the very essence of Nazism as will the Trump Administration if it aligns with the homosexuals instead of the Christians and Torah-faithful Jews. (By definition it’s an either-or choice for Mr. Trump.)

That summary skips over a couple of steps in my analysis and I apologize for leaving people confused.

No, I’m not saying the Yiannopoulos is himself a Nazi, or even a “butch” homosexual. What I see in Milo is just another too-smart-for-his-own-good, overly indulged, Torah-defying Jewish boy making his fortune by acting outrageous and defying social norms (in this case the politically correct norms). Indeed, I strongly suspect that he is a closet leftist or cynical opportunist simply “punking” the conservatives like Sasha Baron Cohen punked and humiliated those poor Eastern European peasants who fell for his “comedic” fraud. (This short video clip shows how thin Milo’s veil of false sincerity really is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgoyQevEhhQ).

As such, Yiannopoulos himself (while perhaps sincere at first) is just cashing in on the Kardashian-effect of our dysfunctional celebrity freak-show society and will may well pull a David Brock and switch sides whenever it stops paying off financially, or perhaps like Bruce Kaitlyn Jenner he’ll just swing for the higher trapeze to stay in the spotlight a little longer.

However, for all his smarmy pseudo-conservatism, Yianopouloos is a symbol of the “gay right” whose celebrity is not of his own making. He is a tool of hidden forces whose purpose is to normalize homosexuality in the right wing by people like billionaire Paul Singer, There’s the danger, because the real “gay Nazis” are salted through this society as they have been in every society – the same general ratio of masculine oriented male homosexuals to femmes here as in pre-Nazi Germany. Homosexuality is a bi-polar gender identity disorder with some manifesting a dysfunctional form of masculinity, others manifesting effeminacy – with a small percentage on each side going to polar extremes, like transsexuality. Most Femmes lean Communist/Socialist. Most Butches lean Fascist. My charts on this phenomenon can be seen here: http://www.scottlively.net/2016/02/20/understanding-sexual-disorientation/

Just as effeminate male homosexuality reflects a certain recognizable demonic spirit (a flamboyant hypersexalization of all aspects of life), so the masculine version has a common psycho-spiritual identifyer: a pathological conviction of it’s innate superiority and right to control the world by brute force. This is thoroughly documented in The Pink Swastika and has been more-or-less acknowledged by the “gay” movement itself: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/johann-hari/the-strange-strange-story_b_136697.html

In that sense, then, Yiannopoulos is the useful idiot popularizing the “gay right” to the millennial generation (and schoolchildren) that will empower the “butch” homosexuals to come out of the closet. That’s what I mean by the rise of Nazism. You might not be able to see it yet, and might even doubt my analysis, but remember that I said it because it’s coming and you’ll be able to recognize it when it does.

Now, as to how this “Milo phenomenon” could cause President Trump to “Break Bad” against Christians and Torah-faithful Jews, we need to look at how he chooses sides on social issues that aren’t his personal priorities.

It would seem that Mr. Trump’s positions on business and immigration issues reflect his actual worldview, but on other matters he seems to choose positions and personnel through a process similar to the “trial by combat” of the Middle Ages. He invites the best candidates to compete with each other for his approval and then picks the last person standing; sort of like what I imagine he did on “The Apprentice,” though I have never watched it (or any other “reality” show).

I think that explains why he has chosen some strong pro-family leaders for his inner-circle, chief among them being Mike Pence, but has at the same time leaned in favor of the “gay” movement rather than the pro-family one regarding public policy. This is because the “gays” ostensibly won the culture war on “gay marriage.” I say ostensibly because if you ignore the ever-dishonest LGBT narrative parroted by the mainstream press and look objectively at the facts, the pro-family movement actually won that war with 35 state DOMAs but was robbed of its victory by Justice Anthony Kennedy and a small handful of activist federal judges. But this is about Mr. Trump’s perceptions, and I think he believed the narrative so he went with the “gays” on LGBT issues.

He’s pro-life because Christians now have the muscle to defeat the pro-aborts. He’s pro-Russia because Putin is tougher than NATO. He’s pro-Israel because Netanyahu is tougher than the Moslems. I think he really sees the danger of Islam to the West and would back Israel anyhow, but I think he could switch from partner to policy dictator in Israel if a less Trump-friendly leader became the Jewish Prime Minister. I think that’s a concern across the board with Mr. Trump: even if you’re a player, he only loves you if you back him (e.g. the Ted Cruz relationship).

Carrying this analysis further, consider the implications for the Trump administration going forward. His inner circle is a balance of Christians and Populists which are faced off today over what some of us recognize is the ultimate spiritual issue of the end times: homosexuality, the sin that triggered Noah’s Flood and the incineration of Sodom and Gomorrah, and that 2 Peter 2 defines as the basis for the heresy of the last days.

I don’t know the dynamics of the Trump inner circle but for the sake of convenience lets say it’s Pence v Bannon representing the opposing camps. Mike Pence is a strong pro-family Christian but he caved in a pinch when, as Governor of Indiana, he faced the Borg of LGBT power regarding the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Bannon is probably the mastermind of the “Milo phenomenon.”

If my analysis is correct President Trump is going to go with one camp or the other based on who’s got the muscle to win the fight. That means we’re at fork in the road TODAY that will determine whether the Trump administration goes with the Bible or with the Milo-influenced crowd tomorrow. The results could not be more dichotomous nor more consequential. If ever there was a time when Christian leaders needed to take a firm persuasive stand, it is NOW. That means we need an immediate, unequivocal and robust rejection of the idea of the myth of the “gay conservative” by the church.

Milo Yiannopoulos and the Rise of American Nazism

The Soros army of Communists is rioting at Berkeley and we conservatives are expected to take sides with the one whose speaking tour has sparked it. However, I have two words for conservatives being enticed to embrace attention-hog Milo Yiannopoulos as a hero of conservatism: run away! With Trump now in office we can take back the education system ourselves, thank you very much. We don’t need this poseur’s help.

What we are witnessing in the contrived “Milo Phenomenon” is not the answer to far left control of our university system but an attempt by so-called “gay conservatives” to hijack the cultural pendulum that is finally swinging our way after half of century of hard work. Not only is Yiannopoulos a recently minted political opportunist rushing to grab the spotlight just as the tide of battle is turning, he also represents the very antithesis of conservatism: the abandonment of the marriage and family foundation of civilization that conservatism exists to conserve.

Don’t fall for the “Milo” branding campaign by granting him Madonna-like single-name stature. Open homosexual Yiannopoulos does not represent conservatism. Like homosexual Adolf Hitler did in Germany, he represents the rise of American Nazism and embracing him will do nothing but empower and justify the Communists who are his true counterparts. To steer this nation back to the civil and manageable political framework of liberal v conservative, the liberals must shun the Bolsheviks, including the Berkeley rioters and the conservatives must shun the Nazis, including Yiannopoulos.

Is the leftist claim that Yiannopoulos represents Nazism credible? Yes! (as to him but not yet as to Trump). Because they know what conservatives do not: that Nazism was always about Nationalist “butch” homosexuals wresting power from Communist/Socialist “femme” homosexuals, first in the streets and then in the seats of government and the treasury. (Anti-Semitism was only incidental to the Nazi agenda for the first dozen or so years.) In that sense “Milo” represents the very essence of Nazism as will the Trump Administration if it aligns with the homosexuals instead of the Christians and Torah-faithful Jews. (By definition it’s an either-or choice for Mr. Trump.)

As Voltaire said, those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them, and we are watching a repetition of Germany’s fall into Communist/Fascist hyper-polarization. As the author of The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, along with Orthodox Jewish researcher Kevin Abrams, I know better than anyone what that lesson of history is supposed to teach us and that is NEVER back homo-fascists as your answer to violent Communism.

First of all, there is no such thing as a “gay conservative” if words have any meaning. I wrote about this here: http://www.scottlively.net/2016/07/28/the-myth-of-the-gay-conservative/

I have always embraced the original goal of the “gay” movement, which was “the right to be left alone.” That’s true tolerance for people who choose to live outside the mainstream of society and I will defend them from invasion of their privacy. But advertising one’s homosexual identity as something good and normal is a deliberate act of subversion of the natural-family norm and not only deserves but requires opposition by the civilized world.

The emergence of homosexual leadership in the political right is a red-alert danger sign about the health of the movement, indicating that the primary force behind it is no longer Biblical but secular. I warned that this was coming back in my newsletter of April 1 2009:

“There is no question that the times are growing darker, and the Gospel is being challenged in this country like never before. And it will almost certainly get worse. Barney Frank is predicting the passage of at least three major pro-homosexual laws during Obama’s first term and globally, the ‘gay’ juggernaut is advancing apace. In recent months some have been equating his election to the rise of the Hitler, but I disagree. Obama’s election is actually equivalent in a historical sense to the Weimar government prior to Hitler, which was characterized by disastrous socialist economic policies and a concurrent extreme sexual libertinism. The resulting social chaos invited over-correction to the ‘right’ which opened the door for Hitler. There as here the transformation of the moral culture over decades from conservative to corrupt was orchestrated by the ‘gay’ movement: that is the central message and thesis of The Pink Swastika.

“Right on cue, we’re seeing a populist anti-socialism uprising across the country in the form of Tea Parties and other gatherings. I’m all in favor of these, because at this stage the movement is largely Christian sponsored and manned. However, if the movement grows to the point that secularists outnumber Christian activists and begin to assume leadership roles, its tone and goals will likely shift hard to the right and away from Biblically-grounded moderating principles.” http://www.scottlively.net/2016/07/01/my-2009-prediction-of-the-trump-campaign/

That was 2009. This week the Trump administration made it’s first big mistake in shifting from Biblically-grounded moderating principles by deciding to continue some of Obama’s policies regarding LGBT issues. My friend Peter LaBarbera wrote about that here: http://americansfortruth.com/2017/01/31/trump-triangulates-on-homosexuality-vs-abortion-aftah-condemns-decision-to-keep-obamas-pro-lgbt-executive-order/

My guess is that all this pro-homosexual stuff, including the Yiannopoulos tour, is a strategy of Trump’s advisor Steve Bannon of Breitbart. His team thinks they can undermine the LGBT power-base by backing “gay conservatives” while redefining some aspects of the “gay” agenda as a part of conservatism, while suppressing the truth about its common roots with abortion (which they oppose). But if sodomy can be endorsed by conservatism so can baby-killing since the law against both is God’s: the law above all laws.

President Trump can’t have it both ways by “triangulating” the issues. “What fellowship hath Christ with Belial?,” the Bible asks. Trump is either with God or with the demons on this question. And the demons behind the debasement of human sexuality and marriage are far too powerful to be constrained by human conniving. Solomon himself, the richest and wisest ruler of all time, failed to learn that lesson of history and lost his kingdom for it (1 Kings 11:1-12). Somebody really needs to get past Bannon (whom I admire as a strategist in most other respects) to point this out to Mr. Trump. Perhaps Mr. Bannon will come to his senses on this, but the degree to which he’s apparently invested in the Yiannopoulos strategy suggests not.

The “gay” monster whose nose is just barely into the GOP tent at this point (the movement, not the man) will soon own it if it is not stopped now. Rather than cheering Yannopoulos like he’s “our prizefighter” on university campuses, we need to shut off the cameras so he’ll stop posing for them and go back to the closet where his unfortunate lifestyle belongs. Instead of letting Mr. Bannon’s team steer the conservative movement away from Biblical alignment, let’s both pray and actively push this ship back on the course toward true conservatism as it was understood by the pro-family, anti-homosexuality Founding Fathers.

The Separation of LGBT and State: How the Trump Administration should handle non-traditional sexual lifestyles.

One of President Trump’s first acts in office was to scrub the White House website of references to the LGBT agenda, which had been Barack Obama’s top global priority. The euphemistically-named Human Rights Campaign (HRC) condemned the move, but I vigorously applaud it and would like to offer a few suggestions for how the Trump Administration should deal with LGBT issues.

HRC named me it’s public enemy #1 in a 2014 report titled “Exporters of Hate,” funded by the Grimer Wormtongue of the GOP, billionaire Paul Singer. As it does with every person who disagrees even in the slightest manner with the notion of “gay” cultural supremacy, HRC and its ilk cast my reasoned opposition as malicious “homophobia” and imply that we pro-family advocates want homosexuals to be persecuted and purged from society. However, my true agenda has always been a matter of public record: a balance between the need of society to preserve the primacy of authentic marriage and the natural family as its norm, with the original demand of the LGBT coalition to enjoy a right to privacy behind closed doors.

When I ran for Governor of Massachusetts in 2014 my platform was quite similar in several key aspects to that of Mr. Trump, and in fact I sometimes wondered if his campaign manager had read my website. (The biggest difference was I stated openly and often that I didn’t run to win, but only to have a platform to promote Biblical values in the political arena.) At the start of my effort in November, 2012, I laid out what was then a unique populist vision for Republicans, in an article titled “Time for a New Coalition in the GOP.” http://www.scottlively.net/the-run-for-governor/

Later, when I began actively campaigning across Massachusetts, I issued a White Paper regarding “gay” issues, on the theme of “Separation of LGBT and State:”

“…Nearly every legal, social and political battle in American society today pits LGBT activists against Christians,” I wrote. “In and of itself, the contest between LGBT activists and Christians is not a problem. Questions about the Christian heritage of the United States aside, we are a nation based in substantial part on the theory of a social contract whose terms are set by the people. Vigorous public debate about what our public policy should be is healthy and beneficial.

The problem is that government has put its thumb on the scale favoring the LGBT agenda, while Christians are limited by the so-called ‘Separation of Church and State,’ a phrase not found in our constitution, but which has nevertheless been determined by activist judges to be the law of the land.

I propose this playing field be leveled by the establishment of a new legal and policy doctrine creating the ‘Separation of LGBT and State.’ The government should be prohibited from endorsing or promoting LGBT political goals or philosophy in precisely the same way that it is prohibited from promoting religion. Under my policy proposal, individual freedom of speech and association would be preserved, providing a balance between the needs of public health and private rights.

For example, government would no longer be allowed to promote the legitimacy of homosexual, bisexual and transgender conduct in public schools, but students could still form student clubs based on their personal choices. Activists could still hold public parades, but government officials would be restricted from marching in their official capacity. LGBT groups could establish community organizations, but no taxpayer money could be used to create or support them…In every way that Christianity is restricted in public life, the LGBT agenda should be restricted.” http://www.lively2014runforgov.com/issues.htm#lgbt

I went on to state that in contests between Christian and LGBT activists, the First Amendment must always trump “sexual orientation” regulations.

President Trump has very publicly aligned himself with two strong leaders whom I also admire.

The first is President Ronald Reagan. Like Mr. Trump, Ronald Reagan rightly had a high level of respect for homosexuals as persons, but as President, Reagan recognized his duty to protect society from the destructive “gay” agenda, whose goal since the Stonewall Riots of 1969 is not tolerance but absolute cultural supremacy. He fulfilled that duty by appointing the preeminent jurist of the 20th century, Antonin Scalia, to the United States Supreme Court. Justice Scalia then wrote the majority opinion in Bowers v Hardwick (1986), which recognized the clear constitutional authority of all 50 states to regulate harmful sexual conduct, specifically including sodomy. (Mr. Trump should remember this when appointing Justice Scalia’s replacement.)

The second is President Vladimir Putin, the remarkable Russian strongman who almost single-handedly dragged the Russian Federation out of its post-Glasnost gangsterism into the rule of law, and purged Marxism from the culture by backing a massive revival of the Russian Orthodox Church. The resulting populist revolution produced a National Duma (congress) of patriotic social conservatives that in 2013 banned the promotion of non-traditional sexual lifestyles to children: a bill that was passed unanimously (436 to 0) and signed into law by President Putin.

Importantly, in Putin’s Russia of today as in Reagan’s America of the 1980s, an LGBT sub-culture thrives in the shadows outside the mainstream culture but has no power to promote it’s agenda in public schools or to enrich itself from the public treasury. Adults are free to live their lives as they choose, so long as they do so discretely and don’t try to cram it down everybody else’s throat. In other words, both of those men achieved the same reasonable balance for their nations that was the norm in many western nations in the 1940s and 50s before the Marxist revolution of the 1960s that spawned “leaders” like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

I don’t have a conduit to the Trump Administration, but someone reading this article probably does. Please ask President Trump to establish a “Separation of LGBT and State” to take the government’s pro-“gay” thumb off the scale and give the American faith community a fighting chance to restore the natural family to it’s rightful place as the heart and foundation of our society.

Rules for Radicals of the Right: A Practical Primer for Populist Patriots

In 1971 Marxist strategist Saul D. Alinsky published his infamous handbook for “community organizers” titled Rules for Radicals, which ever since has been the essential resource for left-wing agitators, including the Clintons and Obama.

Alinsky dedicated his Rules for Radicals to “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer,” [the entity also known as Satan, the Father of Lies and Enslaver of Mankind].

As we conservative populists begin to reclaim our nation from Alinsky’s anti-American Bolsheviks, we need a resource for pro-American Constitutionalists. These Rules for Radicals of the Right are dedicated to the One who conquered Lucifer:

1. Tell the truth without hesitation or apology.

Truth is our most powerful weapon and strategy. Truth is objective, verifiable and self-evident to a clear thinking mind grounded in rationality and knowledge of the facts. Rationality proceeds from recognition and respect for the created order and the Creator Himself. His immutable laws provide the fixed standards by which any material or spiritual thing can be measured, proved and trusted. Without fixed standards there can be no steadfast rule of law making all men equal and free, only arbitrary rule by those with power to enforce their will.

2. Keep it simple but not stupid.

The enemy relies on confusion to create chaos and then exploits it to take control. He weaves a complex fabric of falsehoods, half-truths, misrepresentations, misdirection, hidden false assumptions and sophistry designed to mislead the gullible into drawing false conclusions. Complexity favors the deceivers. Honest and intelligent simplification frees captive minds.

3. Trust or not trust but always verify.

People who spin narratives or otherwise interpret facts or events instead of providing the straight facts to interpret for yourself often have their own agenda. This includes not just leftist media but can be any information source, including those you think are trustworthy. Whenever you’re expected to form a conclusion on any issue based on the authority of the source rather than the full and free presentation of the facts, including opposing opinions and interpretations, don’t trust it. This is especially true when an inherently controversial narrative is repeated consistently over time from only one perspective, such as “climate change,” the “born gay” assumption, or the theory of evolution.

4. Think For Yourself

Human beings are susceptible to jumping on bandwagons or joining teams to meet social needs, but this makes us vulnerable to manipulation by people who form or control teams to serve their own agenda (i.e, the Rs and Ds). Beware of any group, system or institution that requires or expects you to substitute their conclusions for your own, or to adopt a “team” position on a whole slate of issues, and shuns or denigrates you for disagreeing on one or more items. (E.g. many liberals recognize an essential natural order in the eco-systems of living things but are forbidden from acknowledging the natural family as humanity’s ecosystem because “gay rights” is a “must-embrace” leftist goal.)

5. See the good and bad on both sides

Remember that the devil works both sides of the street and it serves his goals if we evaluate people by the team they’re on, not their character or the rationality of their arguments. If truth is our standard and filter we’ll judge things and people fairly and thereby lessen the “us vs them” stupidity that makes us so easy to manipulate in elections and other cultural conflicts.

6. Restore critical thinking

The goal of the elites has always been to “dumb down” Americans to make us easier to deceive and control. Thus liberal terminology always avoids simple definitions and distinct boundaries, especially when used in social policy or laws. (E.g., “homophobia:” a nonsense word that implies all disapproval is an anxiety disorder.) We can defeat the elites by mastering critical thinking skills and restoring true literacy that employs only clearly defined words in unambiguous sentences conveying true and trustworthy knowledge.
7. Reclaim objectivity

The elites always obscure the distinction between objective truth and subjective opinion, and between hard science (which is never contradictory to Biblical truth, properly understood) and “soft science” (which can easily be manipulated to serve a hidden agenda). We must always promote and defend objective truth and contrast it with the subjective opinions and belief systems of the often-fraudulent “soft sciences” that have been driving our social policies for decades.

8. Challenge the know-it-alls

The elites on both sides invariably assume an attitude of moral and intellectual superiority. It’s easy to expose their errors by practicing the Socratic Method of interrogation. Just ask 1) “What do you mean by that?” (i.e., define your terms) and 2) “How do you know that’s true?” (I.e. what is your source of authority). You don’t have to be an expert on any given topic to take command of the discussion and expose liberal illogic and it’s lack of sound presuppositions.
9. Avoid the Tar-Babies

Remember that you can’t persuade a true-believer leftist with fact and logic. Intellectually, most of them embrace a closed-loop Cultural Marxist narrative similar to paranoid schizophrenia. If someone proves himself incapable of recognizing self-evident truths (such as denying the humanity of an unborn baby while looking at an advanced stage ultrasound image), disengage immediately. Conservative populists should largely ignore the left and their delusions and just focus on taking the seats of power away from them.
10. Be an Army of One

Paradoxically, populism is a movement of individualists whose common denominator is the US Constitution. Unlike our cultural opponents who hold the hive-mind mentality of big-government statists, our true strength isn’t in our numbers, but the rightness of our cause. We don’t need to wait for marching orders from Donald Trump or any other perceived leaders, we can act on our own or in small groups on the inherent authority granted to us by God and affirmed by the Founders. The quicker we all decide just to do that, the quicker we can restore this Republic. [I figure we’ve got about a two-year window.]

Obama’s Desperate ‘War With Russia’ Gambit

Yesterday, WND published my article: Obama’s Hitlerian Departure, which compared Obama’s anti-Trump maneuvers in his final days in office to Hitler’s response to the American post-D-Day assault on Cherbourg, France (sabotage and tactical ineptitude being the common elements). http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/obamas-hitlerian-departure/

In it I said “I’m not terribly worried about Obama’s scorched-earth strategy, now that it’s clear the Russians will not be suckered into a hot war with the U.S.” I’d like to expand on that point.

Today, one of the most important articles yet published on the anti-Russian war propaganda campaign appeared on The Intercept, written by liberal Glenn Greenwald. It calls out the Washington Post, The New York Times, MSNBC and others for their highly unethical practice of hyping anti-Russian news stories, then failing to correct the record in any meaningful way when the stories proved to be fake news. (Welcome to my world as the chief target of LGBT propaganda! – but that’s an aside).

Here’s the link, followed by my comment posted on the site: https://theintercept.com/2017/01/04/washpost-is-richly-rewarded-for-false-news-about-russia-threat-while-public-is-deceived/

“Kudos Mr Greenwald. However, as brilliant and important as this analysis is, we wouldn’t be reading it if Putin had taken Obama’s bait and expelled American diplomats from Russia. Instead, we’d be at the next level of fear-mongering, dramatically showcased by news items like today’s announcement of US Special Forces being sent to the Lithuanian/Russian border, and perhaps an uptick in our DefCom threat level. The lies of the propaganda campaign you’ve exposed would go unchallenged (or unpublished) or even characterized as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.” Obama wants a war to justify police state powers, if not necessarily for himself then for Merkel and the rest of the globalist team increasingly desperate to stop the erosion of its control of world affairs. That’s the one aspect of your excellent article left untouched: motive.” By which I mean motive of those creating the fake news [Obama’s CIA perhap?] that these outlets published.

This article is really must-reading, especially for conservatives who have been suckered into the Obama/McCain cold war mentality toward the Russian nation and people – people who would otherwise be our closest friends and allies if not for the steady campaign of lies since 2013 when Russia passed the ban on “gay” propaganda to children. That game-changing decision gave hope to conservative nations around the world that the globalists could be stopped from cramming their godless agenda down the world’s throat. Obama then staged the coup in Ukraine to revive the cold war, and force Russia to annex Crimea (to protect its centuries-old strategic interests there), or watch it be transformed into a NATO base under hostile US and EU control.

That devious chess move by Obama gave undeserved credibility to his subsequent propaganda campaign casting Russia as an aggressor nation seeking to rebuild the “Evil Communist Empire” of the Soviet Union. That cynical US and EU (always a US puppet) chest-beating was followed by regional war games and provocative military encirclement tactics by NATO (always a US puppet as well) which Russia or any other nation would have no choice but to counter, simply for the sake of prudence. Putin’s responses were reasonable and measured.

President Elect Trump, presumably being advised by the best and brightest military minds of the US (many of them high ranking officers fired by Obama for ideological incompatibility with his Socialist and LGBT agendas) saw through the Obama/McCain deceptions. He publicly reached out to Russia and proved to the nation that the war propaganda was false and allowed those willing to see it that Russia shares many of the same goals for the world that American conservatives and populists do.

It’s pretty obvious to me that Obama intended to launch a hot war with Russia. The now demonstrably fake news about Russian hacking of the election results [utterly baseless] was a transparent pretext to expel the Russian diplomats, which was intended to provoke retaliation in kind. That would be followed by a false flag attack on the US with Russia in the frame-up – exactly what occurred with the now demonstrably fake news of the Vermont power grid being shut down in the dead of winter. (Why Vermont? Because it’s home to some of the most vocal and dedicated anti-war activists in the nation, whose criticism of a sudden shift to a US war footing would be blunted).

On its heels would come some major sabre-rattling to give voice to US “outrage” such as today’s news that Obama is sending troops to the Lithuanian/Russian border. Next would be some sort of incident with shots fired and sudden, rapid escalation into war. That hasn’t happened yet, but still might.

Importantly, a conspiracy such as I have outlined would take time to set up, and once set in motion would be hard to abort. President Putin threw a monkey wrench into the works by not retaliating in kind by expelling American diplomats. That took the air out of the pre-planned Vermont “grid attack” story, and exposed the troop deployment tactic as an act of American aggression. The propaganda machine is still spinning it as justified but only those in the general public who still don’t realize that the fake news was debunked are going along with it.

In conclusion, then, I am retracting my statement of yesterday that implied we are out of the woods regarding an Obama war with Russia. I’m back to warning that these next three weeks are fraught with the risk of war because the elites are desperate, and I know I am by no means alone in this assessment. Perhaps by stating this suspicion openly and widely we can deter them. We should also be praying that Mr. Putin and the Russian people resist the natural inclination to retaliate militarily if Obama strikes first, understanding that Trump would make right any harms the Russians suffer in that last-ditch attempt to trigger war.
