Toxic Feminism and Judge Roy Moore

The latest target of social justice warriors in the temples of Secular Humanism we call our public university system is so called “toxic masculinity,” meaning innate male authority in the social order (because in their worldview “all men are pigs”– except effeminate “gays” and “metrosexuals”).

Ironically, however, the most toxic form of masculinity is radical feminism. The masculinization of women that began in the 1960s has produced a hybrid version of feminism that combines the most toxic aspects of both femininity and masculinity: the manipulative cunning of women, and the militaristic will-to-power of men. There are legions of these new feminists at large in America – high-school and college-trained ideologues, steeped in anti-biblical dogma and zealous to avenge their “victim” status as women in a male-dominated world.

To be clear, this is not to indict women whose “feminism” relates only to womens’ equality of value as human beings created in God’s image: that form of feminism is healthy. It rightfully seeks to correct the attitude held by prior generations of men who treated women like children or slaves, rather than partners of different but complimentary traits and functions as praised in Proverbs 31. No, I’m talking about the feminism that trains women to think and act like men and to compete with them for power, abandoning their essential primary role as the cultivators and sustainers of family-based community. These new feminists, whose most sacred “right” is abortion, destroy rather than create civilization.

Their muscular assault on “toxic masculinity” has now spilled into the larger culture in a tsunami of sex-based accusations against men in power that suggests an indictment of all men, and of the very concept of male leadership. Many of the accusations are undoubtedly true, which lends undo weight to those that aren’t, inviting yet more of both sorts (and opening the door to the same political opportunists who “never let a good crisis go to waste”).

This isn’t just a cultural earthquake, it is a swarm of them, like what’s occurring geologically at Yellowstone – and is potentially as dangerous if men collectively cede power to feminists to appease their wrath (in the same manner that so many capitulated to the media-driven “gay rights” agenda to prove they weren’t “homophobes”).

One has to wonder if this isn’t actually a planned offensive of the Clinton/Soros Purple Revolution. If so, it’s a brilliant political maneuver, uniting aggrieved women across the political spectrum into a lynch mob that is quickly morphing into a sort-of cultural coup by the “women’s movement” to replace the old Bible-based and conservative-leaning patriarchal social order with a hard-left matriarchy. (Conservative women, beware the trap!) Already, the “solution” being proposed is the wholesale transfer of power to women, as if maleness itself is the problem.

At the same time the historic stereotypes of men and women are in full display: the masculine emphasis on systematic logic and rule-of law (in which one is innocent until proven guilty) has been swept away by a flood of emotionalism (fitting the old stereotype of women). Numerous Hollywood careers have been crushed, and Judge Roy Moore’s momentous Alabama election today hangs in the balance – with no “due process” in sight, only torches and pitchforks and moral outrage.

The classic film To Kill a Mockingbird – set in Alabama – featured just such a mob, intent on hanging a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman. The film is always presented as a morality tale against racism, because the man was black and the woman white, but the incident that actually drove the narrative was the white woman’s unsuccessful attempt to get the black man to have sex with her, and her insistence after the fact that he had attacked her. It was only the heroic defense of the accused man by lawyer Aticus Finch (played brilliantly by Gregory Peck), that saved the him from being lynched by the townspeople before the truth could be proved in court.

There’s a similar tale of sex-based female treachery in the Bible about Joseph and Potiphar’s wife (Genesis 39), but in that case the innocent man actually served time in jail.

The point here is not to say that the accusers in any of these many cases are liars or that the men are innocent but that our society has a system for determining what the truth is – and we risk doing great damage, not just to the individuals but to the nation as a whole – if we abandon the rule of law to emotional expedience.

That risk is especially high in the case of pro-life, pro-family stalwart Judge Roy Moore, who is rightly outraged at being tried by the leftist media in the court of public opinion on the eve of an election in which opponents like Mitch McConnell have proven a willingness to stop him at all costs. What is more, his many feminist opponents (and perhaps the accusers themselves) routinely justify the wholesale murder of unborn babies as “women’s rights,” so what’s a little election fraud compared to that?

Yes, that’s a serious charge! Which proves my point about due process. Opinion and unproved accusations cannot be a substitute for facts in public policy!

As a California attorney, I practiced Family Law for several years, which is necessarily a mostly gender-based adversarial process involving primarily divorce and child custody. I was intimately familiar with the facts of hundreds of cases of “he-said, she-said” and represented both men and women in roughly equal numbers. I know from whereof I speak that a great many men and woman lie about each other to gain advantage in pursuit of their interests, and if it weren’t for genuinely impartial judges (most are) and a system for gathering and testing facts (the litigation process), there would be no justice at all in family law – the victory would go to whomever had the more compelling narrative.

That’s precisely what the leftists want from this current crisis: the power to steer social policy through compelling narrative without the restrictions of due process to tie their hands and hold them accountable for their lies. It is up to the rest of us to prevent that from happening by demanding a return to the rule of law and an end to “witch hunts.” We must not allow “toxic feminism” to prevail.

In my opinion Judge Roy Moore is the victim of a witch hunt the likes of which we haven’t seen since Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. I don’t know Judge Moore personally, so I have only his history as a unwavering defender of the Bible, and my knowledge of the bad character and underhandedness of his critics like McConnell – and the blatant moral depravity of his pro-abortion Democrat opponent to go on. That’s enough for me – in my capacity as a private citizen – to support him pending the outcome of “due process” that is the birthright of every American.

Hollywood Chickenhawk Scandal Part Two

http://barbwire.com/2017/11/03/tinseltown-shame-hollywood-chickenhawk-scandal/

The tidal wave of sex abuse claims by women against powerful men in Hollywood might suggest that the industry is run by a cabal of heterosexual predators, and it’s good some are being exposed, but which other group of sexual deviants ACTUALLY dominates Tinseltown? – And has been cramming their political agenda into almost every film of the past decade? – And assuring that the most envelope-pushing ones (e.g. Brokeback Mountain) always receive the highest industry awards? If anyone really believes that Kevin Spacey’s alleged sex assault of the teenaged Anthony Rapp (to whom Spacey has apologized but claims he can’t remember) is a Hollywood rarity, or that the “gay” abuse scorecard is just a sidebar to the “larger” heterosexual abuse story, then I’ve got a Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act I’d like to sell you.

Sorry, is that too obscure a reference for you? It shouldn’t be, since the Matthew Shepard “hate crime” on which America’s federal hate crime laws are based was a far bigger and more consequential hoax than that of con-man George C. “I’ve got a bridge to sell you” Parker’s frequent “sale” of the Brooklyn Bridge to gullible marks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_C._Parker And when we’re talking about the political shielding of Hollywood Chickenhawks from exposure and accountability, we’re talking about world-class powers of deception and fraud few groups possess.

Matthew Shepard was the young homosexual man (age 21 but looked 14) whose brutal murder in 1998 – supposedly by “homophobic bigots” – was cynically exploited by the Democrat Party and its powerful “gay” activist constituency. They used it to push through the novel and constitutionally corrosive idea – now a federal law! – that a perpetrator’s malice toward a victim’s “sexual orientation” should earn him more punishment than if he harms a non-homosexual. That criminalization of speech-when-connected-with-a-violent-crime was step one of a multi-part strategy to eventually criminalize ALL stand-alone speech critical of homosexuality as “hate speech” (which is still on their agenda).

The “gay” movement and its co-conspirators milked the Matthew Shepard hoax for a decade until a renegade “gay” journalist let the public in on the secret that Shepard was not an innocent college student murdered by “homophobes,” but a meth-addicted “gay” prostitute slaughtered by a couple of his meth-dealing sex partners.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/26/the-truth-behind-americas-most-famous-gay-hate-murder-matthew-shepard.

Speaking of milk, let’s not forget that “gay” icon Harvey Milk – whose ugly mug has been immortalized on a US Postage Stamp, and for whom a US Navy ship is named – was a known pederast who preyed on teen boys: https://americansfortruth.com/issues/harvey-milk/ How did that little fact escape public scrutiny? Hmmm. According to another “gay” writer, Milk was even connected to infamous “Jonestown” cult leader Jim Jones (also a pederast).

There have been many teachable moments in recent years when the public could have been educated about the America’s pederast underworld: the Catholic priest scandal, the John DuPont “Foxcatcher” scandal, the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the Denny Hastert scandal, The Terrence “Terry” Bean scandal, the Portland Mayor Sam Adams scandal, the Seattle Mayor Ed Murray scandal, and on and on and on.

What do these seemingly unrelated stories have in common with the Spacey scandal? They each involve a conspiracy of Democrat political strategists, media gate-keepers and “gay” activists to hide the significant correlation of “gay” male culture and pederasty from the public. In the Spacey and Milk cases, they also knowingly lionize and elevate men who “allegedly” prey on boys to positions of great influence in society.

This conspiracy, which protects and advances all aspects of the LGBT agenda, not just pederasty, greatly affects all Americans because it has literally reshaped our society over the past half-century. To the extend that their deception has changed laws and public policy it amounts to fraud in furtherance of felony malfeasance.

So to just what extent does their deception affect public policy? If the Matthew Shepard federal hate law isn’t consequential enough for you, how about the creation of false, legally baseless “constitutional right” to homosexual “marriage” in Obergefell v Hodges? That was only possible through the judicial malfeasance of leftist Supreme Court justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan, who were both guilty of actual (not merely perceived) conflict of interest by voting for that result despite having performed “gay marriages” during the pendency of the case: the most blatant and egregious violation of judicial ethics in the history of the court.

Ginsberg and Kagan’s judicial activism is not as clear an example of fraud as it is of abuse of power, until you recognize all the steps of the LGBT conspiracy to deceive the public along the way. We’re talking decades of strategic planning and implementation.

First, it required a suppression of the roots of the modern “gay” movement itself, which was (and is) steeped in pederasy (man/boy sex), closely linked with Nazism, and, in more recent decades, responsible for triggering the global – and globally lethal – GRIDS renamed AIDS crisis (“gay” men remaining by far the #1 source of new cases even today according to the CDC). Raise any one of those three thoroughly documented (ultra-consequential) facts and watch your life and reputation be destroyed by the leftist smear machine.

Second, it required the complete corruption of academia and the scientific community on the question of the normalcy and health consequences of homosexual conduct (which began with the “gay” takeover of the APA in 1973). Today’s strictly enforced, punishment-backed, uniformity of agreement among academics and professionals is alone evidence of their success in that. The breathtaking extent of their fraud in their process of achieving that is detailed by Dr. Jeffrey Satinover in his eye-opening expose “The Trojan Couch: How the Mental Health Associations Misrepresent Science.” http://factsaboutyouth.com/wp-content/uploads/TheTrojanCouchSatinover.pdf

Third, it required the total corruption of journalistic integrity in the mainstream media on issues related to the LGBT agenda. Today, that transformation is so complete that every assertion of the LGBT lobby is simply assumed as fact in mainstream news stories and pro-family disagreement is equated – literally – with Nazi opinion about Jews.

Lastly, it required massive corruption of judicial integrity in US courts, which the 98% heterosexual majority could once count on to preserve the primacy of marriage and the natural family in mainstream culture. Judicial corruption was ensured by homosexualist Anthony Kennedy who wrote all five majority opinions of the Supreme Court establishing “gay” cultural supremacy in America, beginning with the ruling in Romer v Evans that characterized political efforts to oppose special rights for homosexuals as “hate based” and thus illegitimate. Today, nearly all cases related to the LGBT agenda in the lower courts are funneled to activist homosexual judges whose lack of impartiality in their foregone conclusions is not even questioned, let alone considered a basis for recusal.

This is all to explain why one of the largest networks of pederasts in America – the Chickenhawks of Hollywood, has not yet been exposed and might never be, despite the heroism of survivors like Corey Feldman https://pagesix.com/2017/11/01/corey-feldman-calls-lapd-to-out-pedophiles-during-dr-oz-appearance/. After all, in the world of deception, illusion and deflection, who is better than Hollywood?

But make no mistake, if the full exposure of the Hollywood heterosexual scandal would amount to four alarm blaze, the full exposure of Hollywood’s pederasts – the elite of “gay” male culture – would be like the conflagration of Rome.

Hollywood Chickenhawk Scandal Part One

http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/will-spacey-scandal-expose-gay-male-obsession-with-young-teens/

I’d like to weigh in on the Kevin Spacey (age 26)/Anthony Rapp (age 14) tip-of-the-iceberg pederasty scandal that MAY rip open Hollywood like the hull of the Titanic. http://nypost.com/2017/10/30/kevin-spacey-is-another-everyone-knew-who-else-does-hollywood-know-about/

Speaking as the only person ever charged for “Crimes Against Humanity” (not a joke) in significant part for discussing the pedophile core of “gay” male culture, and one of the first people ever listed as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center (for documenting that culture at the core of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party), I’d just like to say, in advance, “I told you so.”

Frankly, however, pedophilia is too broad a term for this all-too-common aspect of homosexual orientation and misses the gender-specific nature of the problem. The correct term is pederasty, euphemistically known in historic “gay” society as “Man/Boy Love,” as in the infamous North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) – which was a regular participant in the early Gay Pride parades before the LGBT movement got taken over by the marketing and PR strategists of the Democratic Party.

To be clear, I’m not saying that all or even most men who identify as “gay” molest children. Even the word “children” is misleading in this context, since “children” connotes pre-school and grammar school ages, while the target of pederasts are young teen and slightly pre-teen boys. And I’m not saying that lesbians share this problem to the same extent that it exists in male homosexual culture (though lesbian abuse of girls is a problem, too).

What I am saying is that male homosexuality identity (from the days when the ancient Spartan military routinely drafted pre-teen boys and paired them with adult homosexual men) has ALWAYS been oriented toward youth, and it is this Man/Boy sexual culture that not only spawned the modern “gay” movement but remains the largely hidden – in fact, politically protected and shielded – core of “gay” male society today. The American public has only once been allowed a glimpse of the pederast underworld – the Catholic priest scandal – which was exposed only because the left’s smoldering hatred of the Catholic Church briefly overwhelmed it’s protectiveness of “gay” society – but even they all conspired to falsely characterize the priest’s pederasty as “pedophilia” to obscure the homosexual connection.

Consider just a few salient facts documented in The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party and on my blog scottlively.net:

The German “Grandfather of Gay Rights,” Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, was molested at 14 by his riding instructor and went on to form the world’s first “gay rights” organization in the 1860s.

The first characterization of homosexual sodomy as a “human right” was by the German Society for Human Rights in the 1920s, whose most famous member was Hitler’s “gay” second-in-command Ernst Roehm (head of the Brown Shirts). Munich police records identified at least 11 boys recruited from a local high school for sex with Roehm – according to journalist Heinz Hoene’s book, The Order of the Death’s Head, (called a “Monumental Achievement” by The New York Times).

The first American homosexual organization was the US chapter of Roehm’s Society for Human Rights, started in Chicago in 1924 by Henry Gerber and two other men, all of whom were arrested shortly thereafter for sex with teen boys.

One of those abused boys, as an adult, molested another teen boy named Harry Hay, who is known today as the “Father of the American Gay Rights Movement.” Till his death, Hay was an outspoken advocate for Man/Boy sex and wore a sweatshirt reading “NAMBLA Walks With Me” in Gay Pride Parades after the pederast group had been banned by the marketing gurus who took over the “gay” movement.

The Stonewall Riots that are commemorated each year as “Gay Pride Day” were triggered by “gay” male patrons of the Stonewall Bar in New York City, angered at police efforts to arrest a 14-year-old boy transvestite prostitute (Mark Pascal, Varieties of Man Boy Love).

Many early “gay” activists were open pederasts, including NAMBLA founder David Thorstad, who also launched the Gay Activist Alliance in 1969, which spawned – directly or indirectly – innumerable LGBT activist organizations, including today’s political behemoth the Washington DC Based Human Rights Campaign – HRC (which named me public enemy #1 of the global LGBT agenda in 2014).

HRC’s founder was Terrance “Terry” Bean, an Obama fundraising bundler accused of sex with a teen boy in 2014 but who escaped prosecution when (after a public monetary settlement offer) the boy (who had been in hiding at the time) declined to testify. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Bean

Terry Bean is based in Portland, Oregon, a sewer of rampant pederasty and home of the “gay” apologist Gus van Sant whose films have romanticized male teen prostitution, and of Sam Adams, who was also accused of sex with a teen boy while Mayor (one of many big-city mayors in recent years – most recently Ed Murray of Seattle, who resigned in September). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Adams_(Oregon_politician).
http://www.npr.org/2017/09/16/551457563/seattle-mayor-resigns-after-multiple-sexual-abuse-allegations

Portland is where I had my eyes opened to the destructive LGBT agenda as spokesman for the No Special Rights Act (1992), and where I faced the first four of five major lawsuits by the “gay” movement trying unsuccessfully to silence my criticism.

It was there I learned about the homosexual/Nazi connection that led to writing The Pink Swastika with Jewish researcher Kevin E. Abrams – dangerous knowledge that got me targeted by the ultra-powerful Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) long before they would begin smearing the pro-family movement as a whole.

Here is the SPLC’s dirty little secret that sort-of ties everything together in one little vignette: the Man/Boy sex angle, the Hollywood angle, the Nazi angle, and the protect “gays” from the pederast connection at all costs angle.

You see, SPLC’s most famous anti-Nazi lawsuit was against White Supremacist Tom Metzger of Southern California, by linking him to the beating death of Ethiopian graduate student Mulugeta Seraw by Skinhead death-metal musician Ken “Death” Mieske and two others in Portland in 1988. Mieske was Metzger’s protégé and likely “gay” lover. He was also the darling of Hollywood “gay” giant Gus Van Sant, who once made a film about Mieske upon his release from prison for an earlier burglary conviction, titled “Ken Death Gets Out of Jail.” Mieske’s history as a teen sexual target of older men is documented in a book about the Seraw murder by Elinor Langer, titled appropriately “A Hundred Little Hitlers.” There’s more on the topic here: http://www.scottlively.net/2014/07/31/reflections-on-the-passing-of-ken-death-and-the-hypocrisy-of-the-splc/

I began this article stating that the Hollywood pederast Titanic MAY be about to sink, but then again it may not, because there is no higher priority on the political left than protecting the “gay” movement from the link to pederasty. If the SPLC could bury the pederast and Van Sant connection in the Metzger “gay” Nazi case, while simultaneously mocking The Pink Swastika as ludicrous – without a hint of media coverage exposing their hypocrisy: And if Terry Bean could get off scot-free without anyone on the left admitting that his teen accuser may have been paid off under their very noses; and if Kevin Spacey can escape any real consequences for his assault of Anthony Rapp by turning his apology into a “coming out” celebration (the most “sacred” of LGBT ceremonies), then there may never be a day of public reckoning for the many Chickenhawks of Hollywood – whose scope of control and abuse would make Harvey Weinstein and James Toback seem like Altar Boys by comparison.

Google and Facebook Abuses Offer Glimpse of Dangerous Future

Google and Facebook Abuses Offer Glimpse of Dangerous Future

Why I will never switch to an exclusively Internet-based newsletter, and why you should join the Natural Life Movement and subscribe to my real-world alternative.

Friends,

There a certain irony – or perhaps intentional dark humor – in the original name for the virtual world that is slowly but surely ensnaring all of humanity in its “World Wide Web.” Who can deny the amazing benefits of the Internet? But as with any human-controlled technology there are two sides of the coin: one benign and one malignant. The maxim that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” speaks to an underlying truth relevant to every form of technology.

It all comes down to who’s in control of it, and the virtual world is firmly in the control of the very elites who hate Biblical Christianity. Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, etc, are the millennial-generation equivalent to the Dutch East India Company, the Hudson’s Bay Company or the Robber Barons of the early U.S.: they are faceless monopolistic corporate leviathans with the defacto powers of government within their spheres of influence but without the restrictions by which actual governments are bound. And they are so powerful that they can often bend government to their will.

For example, the power to censor views based on ideology was recently exercised by Google when it “demonetized” the YouTube videos of conservative organizations but not liberal ones. Since Google is a private company it isn’t bound by the First Amendment, even though the “private” virtual territory it controls is in every relevant way equivalent to the public spaces in the real world governed by equal access laws regarding free speech.

Likewise, the inherent power to steer opinion (and presumably conduct) of the general public – or more chillingly, specific groups – was recently revealed in reports about advancements in Facebook’s algorithms that identify an individual’s tastes and interests and select news stories for them to read and websites to visit. Such technology gives brave new meaning to the phrase “leading people by the nose.” A carefully chosen series of articles, perhaps custom-tweaked by a clever manipulator, could, for example, incite certain highly ideological groups to “direct action” against selected targets. I think that’s already happening, on both the left and the right, by the same puppet-masters: political hyper polarization and emotionalism is the perfect climate for social engineering through propaganda.

Many of the great old science fiction movies of the 1950s shared a common element: a human foil who feared technology and scientific advancement. He was always cast as a bad guy in these stories, the enemy of science. But a couple of generations later came The Matrix, in which the enemy was artificial intelligence itself – the ultimate product of science, and enslaver of mankind. Those 50’s monster movies were almost pure fantasy, but The Matrix bespeaks a current metaphorical truth about growing human dependence on AI, and the human hands behind it.

There’s a certain schizophrenia in the way we’re expected to respond to technology today. On the one hand, we’re cast as ignorant bigots for opposing dehumanizing “advancements” like embryonic stem cell research, but on the other we’re warned that artificial intelligence and robotics will eventually make natural human life obsolete.

There’s a clear spiritual admonition from Jesus in John 17 that is commonly paraphrased “Be in the world, but not of the world.” I think that guidance – so beautifully helpful for negotiating our way though the physical world – also foresaw the challenge to Christians of the virtual world and how we should respond to it.

I think Christians have a duty to resist the efforts of the secular humanist elites to subsume the real world created by God within the artificial world created by human beings and I think it falls within the purview of the pro-life and pro-family movement to lead the way on this front.

We are not enemies of technology, but we must be enemies of the malignant abuse of technology that subjects humanity to manipulation and control by the “elites.”

Exactly a year ago at a seminar in Maine I laid out the concept for a project titled The Natural Life Movement, and shortly thereafter launched it in Bishkek, Kyrgzstan with a Declaration on the Natural Life Movement (below).

Recently, Google changed its spam filters so that my ministry’s Internet alerts went directly to spam. I suspect it was a system-wide change targeting conservatives, but even it it was innocent, it reminded me of the importance of starting the Natural Life Movement. If you’ve read this far in this article, you probably implicitly recognize its importance also.

I’m going to make two promises today.

First, I promise never to stop publishing my real-world paper newsletter, that I’m currently putting out twice per month by first class mail at just $25 per year. I strongly urge you to subscribe to that today by sending a donation by mail to Abiding Truth Ministries, PO Box 2373, Springfield, MA 01101, or online here http://www.defendthefamily.com/help/donate.php . You’ll be automatically added to the mailing list.

Second, I promise to make the Natural Life Movement a prominent feature of my newsletter from this day forward, and work diligently for the rest of my life to educate and equip pro-family conservatives to defend the real world from being supplanted by the virtual world – that includes opposing the normalization of LGBT counterfeit “families,” but so much more.

There needs to be a Christian-driven movement to insist that people be allowed to live in the real world and not the virtual world if they choose to, and that systems and processes based on actual, tangible objects, like paper records and currency must be preserved. The contrast of the God created natural world and the world of artificial alternatives made by human hands must remain central to human awareness, and a balance maintained between that real world and the artificial.

I’m asking you to be a part of that movement. Subscribe to my newsletter today. Forward this message to your lists. Begin to talk and write about the Natural Life Movement in your daily conversations in the real world and online.

May God bless your support for these ideas and my ministry.

In Him,

Dr. Scott Lively
Declaration of the Natural Life Movement
1. The universal values of all humanity are grounded in the natural order of Creation.

2. The foundation of civilization is the natural family: a man and a woman created to join together as one flesh to bear and raise children together with mutual love and nurturing.

3. The true strength of a healthy nation is a network of natural families organized into natural communities which create stability and economic independence through mutual cooperation.

4. The community which sets the best interest of its children as its highest priority guarantees the highest level of security, prosperity and happiness for everyone.

5. A child’s best interest is to be raised in harmony with the natural world and respect for the God who created it.

6. The natural-life society allows for beliefs and practices that do not conform to majority views, and practices tolerance for those who respect the mainstream culture but choose to live outside of it. It also recognizes the value of technology that compliments the natural order without doing harm to it.

7. The natural lifestyle simply prefers the natural to the artificial as a general, flexible principle:

Ÿ Natural foods as contrasted to artificial, genetically modified, or pesticide tainted foods,

Ÿ Natural healing as contrasted with artificial chemicals and processes,

Ÿ Natural persons as contrasted with “legal persons” such as corporations, robots, and “transhumans.”

Ÿ Natural families as contrasted with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or polyamorous groupings,

Ÿ Natural communities made of independent, self-sufficient families as contrasted with forced urbanization and dependence on government.

It is the goal and purpose of the Natural Life Movement to improve the lives of all the people by promoting this Natural Life perspective as model for our society, its government and our neighbors across the world.
Drafted by Dr. Scott Lively, President, Defend the Family International, October 14, 2016, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

Swamp Central: US State Department

http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/swamp-central-u-s-state-department/

Last year on my 25-nation personal tour to assess the populist revolution across the world I spent several days in Romania, which had recently begun the process of amending its constitution to protect marriage. The change should have been as much a no-brainer for the Romanian government as it was for their next-door neighbors in Hungary, since the Romanian people are overwhelmingly morally conservative, being mostly Orthodox Christians. Yet, the marriage amendment, backed by a 3-million strong signature drive, has been delayed for some time in the Romanian Senate and most recently by the Romanian Constitutional Court, which has announced “that it would analyze the law’s compatibility with the rest of constitution” http://www.politico.eu/article/romania-gay-marriage-turns-illiberal-with-moves-against/.

Who is really behind this stonewall campaign? My guess is the US State Department. Romania is heavily influenced by the United States government, specifically the Departments of State and Defense, and at least the State Department seems intent on advancing the leftist agenda on LGBT issues in foreign nations as aggressively as if Donald Trump had never been elected. Current US Ambassador to Romania Hans Klemm has been an outspoken champion of homosexuality, even marching for “gay marriage” in the pouring rain this past summer: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/05/20/1000-in-romanian-gay-pride-march-amid-moves-to-limit-rights.html.

The jury is still out on the mixed messages coming Defense Secretary James Mattis, who has so-far delayed the push for transgenderism in the military but allowed the rest of the “gay” agenda to proceed. But just this week an Air Force colonel has been punished for refusing to affirm “gay marriage” and Secretary Mattis has been AWOL in his defense. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/air-force-punishes-colonel-who-wouldnt-affirm-gay-marriage.

I’ve opined previously that the Departments of Defense and State are really the heart and soul of the DC “swamp,” and likely the reason that President Trump has not been able to keep several of his campaign promises on foreign policy issues, including his promise to end neo-con warmongering and propaganda regarding Russia and the Middle East. I even suggested that his capitulation to McCain and the other neo-con Senators on Syria was their price for finally confirming Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. (I believe the Gorsuch appointment reflects President Trump’s commitment to the pro-family cause in the same manner that the Scalia appointment reflected President Reagan’s views.)

I’ve also written several times about my experiences in Riga, Latvia during the George W. Bush administration, when I and Pastor Ken “Hutch” Hutcherson (an emissary of the Bush White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives) confronted US Embassy staff there about their orchestration of the 2007 “gay pride” parade in defiance of the will of over 95% of the Latvian people. I was shocked at the time, only later learning that it was the supposedly pro-family George Bush who had proactively appointed the second openly homosexual US Ambassador in history in 2001 – to Romania! (The first such appointment was just two years earlier by Bill Clinton – to Luxembourg).

Then came Obama who simply threw open Pandora’s box on sexual deviance and made the LGBT agenda a priority for all branches of the US government. His cabinet pick for State was, of course, Hillary Clinton (allegedly her consolation prize for bowing to Ted Kennedy’s demand to let Obama cut the line to the presidency in 2008), while he kept key Bush insider Robert Gates at Defense where Gates spearheaded the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” As the Trump presidency has brilliantly exposed, the Bushes, Clintons and Obama are really a single political organism: a multi-headed political Hydra whose blatant anti-Trump conspiracies are continually being revealed by articles such as this: http://www.businessinsider.com/barack-obama-george-bush-blast-us-politics-2017-10.

Just as Ronald Reagan was forced by the one-worlders to accept George H.W. Bush as Vice President, Donald Trump accepted several agents of the elites in his administration, including Rex Tillerson at State. Rex Tillerson is, of course, the former Chairman of the Boy Scouts of America who voluntarily capitulated to the “gay” agenda despite holding the ultimate Ace-in-the-Hole in the form of a US Supreme Court ruling specifically recognizing the Boy Scout’s right to discriminate against homosexuality in its ranks. https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/politics/2017/01/07/tillerson-showed-pragmatism-head-boy-scouts/KzEevXTrrwx1dc39oxSeBI/story.html.

Who was Tillerson’s partner in that moral treason? Robert Gates, who, after homosexualizing the US military, then succeeded Tillerson at the Boy Scouts. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/07/robert-gates-boy-scouts-gay-leaders/399716/

What is it about the homosexual agenda that is so important to the elites that they would not just destroy the moral foundations of the Boy Scouts and the military to advance it but aggressively cram it down the throats of every morally conservative country of the world – even in Eastern Europe where we are competing with overtly pro-family Russia for favor? Why would men like Tillerson and Klemm continue to push that agenda in countries like Romania even under the Trump administration and in the face of a growing global revolution against political-correctness that was sparked by such policies? It is insanity that can only be explained in spiritual terms.

Destroying the Biblical presuppositions of Judeo-Christian civilization is the necessary prerequisite to imposing the new world order of their envisioned global socialist government. This is why – in the world of geo-politics — the newly re-Christianized and increasingly pro-family Russian Federation is their scapegoat and target of incessant war propaganda. It is why – inside US borders — the elites are rushing desperately to criminalize Christian values on sexuality (from banning reparative therapy for “gays,” to punishing any refusal to embrace transgender newspeak). This is also why the entire leftist block, from Antifa and BLM at the street level to the “Establishment” of both political parties, and the lying media, is united to “resist” President Trump and falsely portray him as a “fascist:” because the Samson-like Donald Trump – as unlikely a champion of Judeo-Christian values as was that Biblical Judge of the Philistines – represents the greatest threat to the swamp they have faced since Reagan.

In the long process of draining the DC Swamp, the executive department to watch is State, whose leadership has long enjoyed a revolving-door relationship with the Bush and Clinton political dynasties, the CIA, and the Department of Defense. For the swamp draining to be real and lasting, changes must be reflected not just around the edges, but in the heart of the swamp as well, and it must not simply pander to domestic populist priorities like immigration: it must restore respect for the common foundation of all civilization: authentic marriage and the natural family. The true litmus test for making America – and the world – great is our response to the culture-destroying “gay” agenda, and the true measure of our national sanity is whether we stop trying to force the world to normalize it.

Where Columbus Day Still Matters

20171013_115503

America’s Marxist revolutionaries, led by the guerrilla group “Antifa,” co-opted Columbus Day (October 9th) for a day of rage and vandalism against the legacy of Christopher Columbus, or as he is known in the Spanish world, Cristobal Colon. Antifa has actually done us a service by bringing attention to a monumental historical event that (under pressure from the left, ironically) has been increasingly downplayed in America, where it has been relegated to the status of a boring bank holiday alongside “Presidents’ Day.”

Unexpectedly, my current research project in Spain on the “Golden Age” of Christian/Jewish/Moslem harmony on the Iberian Peninsula has been dominated by the phenomenon of Columbus Day and I can tell you that the Spanish go “ALL IN” for Mr. Colon on this massive national holiday, which was celebrated here in Spain on October 12th.

World Net Daily published my article “Antifa Turns its Guns on Hispanics” on October 8th http://www.wnd.com/2017/10/antifa-turns-its-guns-on-hispanics/ in which I discussed the interesting timing of Antifa’s day of rage against Columbus monuments in the US and the announcement by the (leftist) Catalonian separatists that they would declare independence from Spain on the same day (though that declaration has yet too occur – thanks to the major pushback by the conservative Spanish government and an exodus of multinational corporations from Barcelona, the capital of the Catalon province). As I pointed out in my article, the Catalonians are casting themselves as anti-Fascists much the same as the hard left is doing in the US, and this all seems to be part of a global strategy by the left. http://abcnews.go.com/International/strikes-catalonia-leaders-push-independence-spain/story?id=50260034

My wife and I flew into Barcelona from Tel Aviv just hours after the vote for independence and got caught up in some street demonstrations as we drove north across Catalon to Andorra then next day. We have been touring Spain ever since, arriving on the 7th in Valladolid – where Christopher Columbus died in 1506 — just as both the secession news (and the Antifa news back home) was peaking, so I wrote my WND article and included a few pictures, including one of the massive monument to Columbus in Valladolid.

Two days ago, on October 12th, we arrived in Granada without having known either that this was the Spanish Columbus Day or that this was the city in which Columbus received his commission from King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella to make the journey that would result in his discovery of the Americas. (An impressive monument commemorating that meeting stands just a hundred yards from our hotel.) Consequently for us, the city is simply mobbed with people, and tickets to the Alhambra (Moorish) fortress above the city were completely sold out (though so much of the site is open to the public that we really don’t feel like we missed anything).

My point in writing this short update is just that Americans shouldn’t allow political correctness to rob us of our heritage. Columbus Day should be an even bigger deal in America than it is here in Spain.

I also want to thank God for arranging this completely unique experience for Anne and me. Arriving in Barcelona, Valladolid and Granada just when we did and in that precise sequence, with no prior planning or awareness, what a remarkable thing!

Oh, one last item. At the end of our day at Alhambra, as we were walking back to our hotel, talking religion, history and politics as we always do, we stopped in a park at the base of the mountain fortress to rest. Spray painted across the stone bench there was the bare message “Anti-Fascists.” It was just that singular, incongruous exclamation with no apparent logic or purpose for being in that spot, except perhaps as a wink and a nod of confirmation from the Lord that I was on the right track in my assessment of who’s really driving the secessionist movement.

Zionism, Antisemitism and Christianity: A Letter from Israel

I hold to my own refinement of protestant theology which I call Whole Bible Christianity, that in some ways parallels Messianic Judaism but with an emphasis on reintroducing the Two House teaching to modern Christians. The Two House teaching unifies the Old and New Testaments of the Bible without the need of creative interpretations or spiritualizing the text. It also corrects the error of supersecessionism, or “replacement theology” which is the root of antisemitism in Christianity: http://christinprophecy.org/articles/the-evil-of-replacement-theology/

I first learned about replacement theology in 1995 or 96 from an elderly Jewish woman who introduced herself as a close relative of Stephen Spielberg (his mother Leah Adler, I think), who called me on the phone one day to ask my position on it. My recent co-authorship of The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party with Orthodox Jewish researcher Kevin E. Abrams had understandingly become a topic of interest in the Jewish community and she had somehow found my phone number.

I was still pretty much a baby Christian at that time and I was too embarrassed to admit to her that I really didn’t know what replacement theology was. She was a very sweet person who was audibly nervous in talking with me and I’m afraid my hedging on the topic (to hide my ignorance) left her with the false perception that I was sympathetic to that view, which clearly distressed her. I’ve always regretted that but had no way to rectify it.

I think the average American Christian today is as ignorant of replacement theology and its role in antisemitism as I was in 1995, and even less aware of the Two House teaching that corrects it.

Replacement theology is simply the belief that when Jesus came as Messiah and was rejected by the Jews, Christians replaced them as God’s “chosen people.” The doctrine is rooted in a failure to recognize God’s separate relationship with the two houses of the Hebrews established when Jacob married two wives: Leah and Rachel, and had a total of twelve children by them and their handmaidens.

We must first understand the meaning of “chosen people.” Abraham was chosen by God to be the patriarch of a new family line among humanity through which God would guide the world away from wickedness toward righteousness. By blessing them when they were obedient and punishing them when they were disobedient, He used the chosen people as a living example for the world of what to do and what not to do to please Him. For example, the substitution of a lamb for Isaac set a new standard for the world that God could not be worshipped through human sacrifice. Whenever the Hebrews fell back into that sin, God punished them so terribly that the entire world was shocked by the example.

“And [King Manasseh] made his son pass through the fire [as a sacrifice to Molech]…And the LORD spake…saying, ‘Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations…Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle…and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down’ ” (2 Kings 6-13). Today, the rejection of human sacrifice is considered a universal human value and such practices are limited to shadowy satanic cults, a complete reversal from the age of Abraham. The Mosaic law served the same purpose of guiding the spiritual evolution of the world, readying humanity for the New Covenant in Christ.

The “chosen people” also suffered a serious consequence when they rejected Jesus as the Messiah, but the consequence was NOT replacement by the Christians. Paul makes this clear in Romans 11: “I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! …. From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God’s choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”

God’s promises are unbreakable, and this is the key to understanding the two houses and the true relationship of Christians and Jews. He gave a set of promises to Abraham that were held as a package by Isaac and Jacob, but were divided between the children of Jacob’s two wives: Leah and Rachel (Ruth 4:11). Leah’s house became the House and eventual Kingdom of Judah. Rachel’s house became the House and eventual Kingdom of Israel. Under Solomon, David’s united kingdom was split asunder, with Judah and Benjamin (plus Levites) forming the Kingdom of Judah while the other ten tribes under Ephraim (aka Israel – Jeremiah 31:9) formed the northern Kingdom of Israel (though some members of each tribe could always be found in both kingdoms). During a subsequent war, the Judeans were first called “Jews” (2 Kings 16:6) and that has ever since distinguished the House of Judah from the House of Israel.

The House and Kingdom of Israel fell into idolatry from Day One and was eventually “divorced” by God and sent away (Jeremiah 3:8), but God had a plan for their restoration that included the death and resurrection of a Savior, Yeshua Ha’Maschiach — Jesus Christ, who offered the gift of salvation first to the House of Israel (Matthew 15:24), then to the House of Judah (Matthew 23:37-39), and then to the Gentiles (John 4, Galatians 2:8). These few threads are an accurate representation of a fascinating and comprehensive tapestry of doctrine that spans the entire breadth of scripture [See Romans 11, Hosea 1-3, Jeremiah 2-3, Ezekiel 37:15-23].

It is the House of Judah which resides in Israel today, a blend of secularized ethnic Jews motivated by political Zionism and religious Jews motivated by the spiritual Zionism rooted in the promise of Genesis 17:8: “And I will give unto thee…all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession.” The House of Judah is both the “wife” never divorced by God (Hosea 1-3) – (and thus still subject to the Mosaic Law pending the second coming of Christ) – and the “son” of God (Hosea 1-3) described in the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-31) as the elder brother, jealous of the younger brother (Romans 11:11).

It is the House of Israel (the divorced wife sent away into the wilderness and the prodigal son who squandered his inheritance and lived among the Gentiles) that was redeemed by accepting Christ, “As indeed he says in Hosea [1-3], “Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved’” (Romans 9:25). Not just Hebrews, but every Gentile who has been “grafted in,” for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).

The reconciliation of these two houses is a central theme of end-time prophecy. “And He will lift up a standard for the nations And assemble the banished ones of Israel, And will gather the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth. Then the jealousy of Ephraim will depart, And those who harass Judah will be cut off; Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah, And Judah will not harass Ephraim” (Isaiah 11:12-13). The reconciliation will only be completed in the Millennial Kingdom that begins with the second coming of Christ but it has already begun.

This ingathering phenomenon of the two houses, which is known today as “Zionism,” was begun in Jerusalem as a ministry to Jews by British Christians of the House of Israel decades before it became a formal political campaign of the House of Judah under Theodor Herzl in 1897. It began under Queen Victoria, who (rightly or wrongly) believed the British monarchy was descended from Judean royalty – during the rise of the Christian movement called British Israelism which peaked with the British liberation of the Holy Land from the Ottoman Empire in 1917 and the issuance of the Balfour Declaration inviting Jews back to Israel that same year.

The first agents of what later became known as “Zionism” were Anglican Christians of the 1830s who built the first protestant church in the middle east (in the model of a synagogue), where I am now composing this letter.

I am publishing this letter to challenge Christian believers to reject “replacement theology” and embrace their identity as wild olive branches grafted into the Hebrew root that is common to both Christians and Jews. That is the true solution to antisemitism reflecting the mind and heart of God.

Biblical Law, Grace and ‘Gay’ Recidivism

Ex-“gays” have been a part of the Christian church from its earliest days. After reminding believers that “homosexuals” and “effeminates” (male transsexuals) “will not inherit the Kingdom of God,” the Apostle Paul wrote: “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). This scripture was foundational to the ministry of Exodus International, which served as a hub for many independent groups of ex-“gays” around the world from 1976 to 2013. Exodus was so named to evoke the exodus of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt in the Bible, and to analogize compulsive same-sex attraction and conduct to slavery from which one could be delivered by God.

Though I have never experienced same-sex attraction, I attended several Exodus conferences and other functions and was deeply impressed by the glowing Christian character of many of its members and the overpowering presence of the Holy Spirit, especially during their worship in music. I have always had a special place in my heart for “gay” strugglers and have ministered to many individuals over the years as an aspect of my Bible-based Christian activism.

As with any compulsive behavioral disorder, homosexuality is tough to overcome. There’s an aspect of physiology involved in all addictions – drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, video games, porn, whatever – that addicts the struggler to his or her own pleasure-related brain chemicals that are released when they act out. Unlike most other addictions, however, sex-based ones are especially hard to escape because sexuality is hard-wired in us and the brain chemistry associated with sexual release is extraordinarily powerful. If you never experienced cocaine, you’d never miss it, but everyone is sexual by nature, and the sexual impulse is continual throughout life, whether you want it or not.

Once your brain associates sexual pleasure with any particular illicit act or fetish – especially during the formative years – the stage is set for possible addiction. You can’t un-ring the bell and you can’t prevent the bell from ringing again in the part of your brain where temptations dwell. The more you indulge the temptation, the louder and more insistent the bell will ring. What is worse, the shame associated with indulgence create an inner turmoil which enhances the effect of the brain chemistry and becomes a part of the addictive cycle.

I was miraculously healed of drug and alcohol addiction in 1986 – on my knees in prayer at a treatment center – after sixteen years of bondage that started at the age of 12. I never had another desire to drink or take drugs ever again. Nevertheless, I attended Alcoholics Anonymous regularly for over a year and saw that for many addicts temptation fades very slowly but they can stay abstinent through the constant mutual encouragement of fellow-sufferers. A few years later when I became familiar with Exodus International, I noticed that the successful local groups of ex-“gays” seemed to follow the same general approach.

AA enjoys enormous public support, even among drunks who don’t wish to seek recovery. Nevertheless, the recidivism rate for alcoholics is very high. Exodus International, on the other hand, suffered the wrath of the powerful LGBT political movement from Day One because every one of its members was living proof that homosexual self-indulgence is a choice. Every member was thus individually a target – with the goal of forcing them to recant and re-commit to a “gay” self-identification. And, of course, many did, including Alan Chambers, who closed Exodus in 2013 with an apology for ever suggesting homosexuals could overcome same-sex temptation. Alan went back to Egypt, metaphorically speaking, while the network of ex-“gay” groups simply migrated from Exodus to the more Biblically-oriented Restored Hope Network and added him to their prayer list.

But if vilification and ridicule are the “stick,” then the “carrot” in “gay” recidivism is so-called “gay theology:” the Christian heresy that fraudulently reinterprets the Bible to change its message from condemnation to affirmation of homosexuality. From apostate Derrick Sherwin Bailey’s Homosexuality and the Western Christian Tradition in 1955 to the just-published manifesto “The Statement” http://www.christiansunitedstatement.org/ (in response to the Biblically grounded “Nashville Statement” on LGBT issues https://cbmw.org/nashville-statement/), “gay theology” has always been satanic bait to lure those with same-sex attraction into lives of active homosexual sin. It is also a seductive siren-song for ex-“gays” in the weak moments of their recovery.

In tandem with “gay theology” is the heresy of antinomianism, which holds that salvation by grace frees the Christian believer from accountability to the moral law (which fails the most basic test of logic if theft or murder is substituted for sodomy in the equation: reductio-ad-absurdum). Antinomianism is the heresy Paul debunked in the book of Romans, which, importantly, begins with a correlation of homosexuality with the “reprobate mind” (Rom 1:18-32), before launching into a detailed treatise on law and grace in chapters 2-8, contrasting “justification” (salvation by faith alone, Rom 5:1), with “sanctification” (becoming Christlike, Rom 6:12-19).

Effective ministry to Christian “ex-“gays” and backsliders requires a basic understanding of Paul’s teaching. While justification is by faith alone, sanctification requires work: specifically, following the spirit of the moral law that underlies the letter of the law proactively. To the argument that “gay sex” (or stealing) will send you to hell, the heretics cite “salvation by faith alone” and they’re right on that narrow technicality when taken out of context.

But their deadly error is missing the truth about sanctification: 1) becoming Christlike is not possible without following the spirit of the moral law and cooperating with Him in the transformation process, and 2) only a false Christ contradicts the spirit of the moral law to rationalize sin, meaning if you’re doing that in His name you’re probably not saved because you can’t be justified by faith in a false Christ. This is why “faith without works is dead” (James 2:20) because faith is proved by its fruit (changed character and behavior) – as measured by the spirit of the moral law.

“Gay” heresy also confuses grace with mercy. Grace is God’s dispensation of an unearned gift, while mercy is His forgiveness for sin-earned punishment. Moral equations involving homosexuality and its consequences are not governed by grace but mercy. Thus, the darkest spiritual condition arises from declaring that homosexual temptation and conduct is a “gift” of God (blaspheming Him – and the Holy Spirit – by contradicting His explicit moral law), while simultaneously pushing away His hand of mercy by insisting that homosexual sin doesn’t need forgiveness. Such a person is doubly cursed.

“Gay theology” is thus not just a threat to the integrity of the Church, it is a diabolical trap designed to ensnare same-sex attracted believers in a soul-binding heresy. Our duty is to boldly affirm the truth and encourage them to do the same – especially if they’re backslidden – because grace can come only from the true Christ, and forgiveness is only effective for those who admit they need it. The Apostle John perhaps said it best in 1 John 1:8-10: “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” That graceful summary contains both the essence of “gay” recovery and the remedy for recidivism.

The True Leftist Identity of the So-Called ‘Far Right’

History matters. Those who fail to learn from it are doomed to repeat its mistakes. Those ignorant of the history of Nazism and “white supremacist” groups like the KKK, for example, might make the mistake of associating these groups with political conservatism, while nothing could be further from the truth.

Let’s start by remembering that American conservatism is grounded in the Bible, and what it seeks to conserve is a society conformed to the Biblical world view. That’s why conservatism is so heavily focused on the Founding Fathers and the U.S. Constitution, and the most intense political battles between conservatives and liberals relate to “original intent” and “traditional values.” On race relations, the New Testament is quite clear that – as individuals – all human beings are equally valuable to God and to be judged on their conduct not their ethnicity: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” reads Galatians 3:28, summarizing the Biblical view.

Yes, the Bible allowed various forms of slavery in the Old Testament (but never based on skin color), just as it allowed divorce and polygamy – all practices which God disapproved. Importantly, these were world-wide practices in those days which the Bible regulated in such a way as to steer the world away from barbarism toward civility. Biblical law must always be viewed in contrast to the extreme depravity and wickedness of the pagan world at that time. Modern critics point to such statutes as “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” to suggest God endorsed mayhem, but in reality, it was the world’s first law restricting revenge to a proportional response. In every statute of the Mosaic Law, God was teaching principles of self and social governance to the world through the people He had assigned to be the example of a better way. By the time of Christ, the higher Biblical standards of the Hebrews had raised civilization to a level that it could understand and follow a New Covenant. Slavery, divorce and polygamy were all actively discouraged in the New Testament.

The anti-slavery movement has always been a primarily Christian phenomenon from its earliest roots in the 14th Century AD. The modern popular abolitionist version was epitomized by William Wilberforce and the Clapham Sect of Anglican believers in the late 1700s. American abolitionism followed their lead, and made slow incremental steps in the right direction. Without the progress of Christianity in its long, continuing contest with paganism there would never have been an end to slavery.

In contrast, “white supremacy” is a doctrine of the occult, built upon the ancient anti-Creationist worldview we call Evolution, which was popularized (not invented) by Charles Darwin. In the late 1850s Darwin emerged as the ideological savior of the African-slave-owning world just as post-Reformation Christianity began making major strides against slavery. Later, in 1871, Darwin wrote “At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races… The break [between humans and non-humans] will then be rendered wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilized state, as we may hope, than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as at present between the negro or Australian [aboriginal] and the gorilla.” Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, p. 156.

In other words, Darwin taught that Blacks were just an intermediary step in human evolution between apes and whites. This gave “scientific” backing to the logic of the infamous Dred Scott decision denying constitutional protections to Black African slaves, a ruling handed down by the US Supreme Court three years prior to the first publication of Darwin’s most famous book On the Origin of the Species.

Darwinian racism was given further wings and an “Aryan supremacist” flavor when it was adopted by occultist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, founder of the global and enormously influential Theosophical Society. In her 1888 book The Secret Doctrine, Blavatsky asserted that humanity had descended from a series of “Root Races,” naming the Aryan Race as the 5th and currently dominant one out of an eventual seven. Blavatsky succinctly showcased the logic of Darwinism in her occultic delusions, writing “The intellectual difference between the Aryan…and such savages as the South Sea Islanders, is inexplicable on any other grounds. No amount of culture, nor generations of training amid civilization, could raise such human specimens as the Bushmen, the Veddhas of Ceylon, and some African tribes, to the same intellectual level….Thus will mankind, race after race, perform its appointed cycle-pilgrimage…dropping one sub-race, but only to beget another higher race on the ascending cycle; while a series of other less favoured groups — the failures of nature — will…vanish from the human family” (Vol II, p 421, 446).

However, it was Adolf Hitler’s early inspiration, the defrocked homosexual monk Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels and his occult partner Guido von List that redefined “Aryan” to mean “Nordic” to produce what we recognize today as “White Supremacy.” Lanz and List led Blavatsky’s Theosophical Society in Germany, where Lanz published Hitler’s favorite magazine “Ostara,” and later (with List) the Theosophical magazine “Lucifer.” Lanz was The Man Who Gave Hitler His Ideas, (according to Austrian psychologist Wilfried Daim in his 1957 book of that title https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilfried_Daim) and flew a swastika flag above his castle in Bavaria in 1907, a dozen years before the Nazi Party was even founded.

Lanz isn’t normally credited with inspiring the Ku Klux Klan, but a simple Internet search for images of the man will show that he sported a white hooded robe long before the KKK adopted that as its uniform, as well as Lanz’s “white supremacist” philosophy. It must also be remembered that the KKK’s primary political target was the Republican Party, whose roots are in the anti-slavery movement, while the KKK was primarily populated by Democrats, even into the 20th Century (e.g. US Senator Robert Byrd, D. West Virginia, and Democrat US Senate Candidate become Supreme Court Justice, Hugo Black).

While the radical left is today campaigning hard against “fascism,” it’s own storm troopers in groups like Antifa are following the playbook of the 1920s Nazi Brownshirts to the letter. This makes perfect sense when one remembers that the Brownshirts were not conservatives, but Socialists and named themselves so! Even their fellow Germans called them “beefsteaks” – brown on the outside, red on the inside (a reference to the Communist street fighters that inspired them to form their own force).

Lastly, there are only two high-profile American Nazis in recent decades: homosexual Frank Collins, who led the Nazi march on Skokie, IL in 1977 (later being jailed for sex with teen boys) and George Lincoln Rockwell who headed the American Nazi Party from 1959 to 1967. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) “[In] Rockwell’s group gays made up a “significant” — if carefully hidden — part.” SPLC goes on to admit “Although it will come as a surprise to many, there has long been a fascist gay subculture. Hitler’s paramilitary SA storm troopers had a significant gay element.” (Despite this the SPLC designates my ministry as a “hate group” because my Orthodox Jewish co-author Kevin Abrams and I wrote The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party documenting the full extent of the “gay”/Nazi connection in Germany and the United States.)

No the so-called “far right” is not conservative, it is and has always been the outer fringe of the far left.

A Call to 40 Days of Prayer and Repentance

Regardless of one’s theology or beliefs about what is summarized below there is no question that humanity is at a point of extreme crisis on numerous fronts, and that many people – based (rightly or wrongly) on their personal beliefs about these things — will make decisions in the next few weeks that will influence the course of history, perhaps profoundly. And since we Christians are under a Biblical mandate to always pray and repent, this seems an especially appropriate time to do so corporately. I will be making a special effort to focus my own spiritual life on prayer and repentance for 40 days and I invite you to join me.

On Monday there will be a total eclipse of the sun exclusively over America, just as the Hebrew calendar enters a 40 day period of repentance corresponding to the period when God forgave the Hebrews for the sin of the Golden Calf at the foot of Mount Sinai. That begins with the first day of the thirty-day month of Elul and ends with a period called the Ten Days of Awe, the first through the tenth day of the month of Tishri. In Hebrew tradition, it is in this ten day period that God decides whether one’s name is written in the Book of Life or the Book of Death.

Many people are aware of the Biblical significance of a term of 40 days or years as a period of testing and preparation: Moses’ repentance and prayer for the Hebrews before they entered the Holy Land (Deuteronomy 9:18-29), Elijah’s spiritual preparation on the road to Mt. Horeb to meet God (1 Kings 19:7-18), Goliath’s testing of the armies of God before David arrived to slay him (1 Samuel 17:4-26), Jesus’ sojourn in the wilderness before launching His ministry (Matthew 4:1-17) are a few examples.

Less commonly recognized is the Biblical significance of the term of ten days, which has the same connotation regarding testing and preparation but adds a special emphasis on the judgement of the decider: Daniel’s test of faithfulness in refusing to be defiled by King Nebuchadnezzar’s “delicacies” was of ten days (Daniel 1:1-16), God’s conditional decision to spare the remnant of the Jews not exiled to Babylon was revealed to Jeremiah at the end of ten days (Jeremiah 42:1-22), and, most significantly, God’s warning and conditional promise to Christians in Revelation 2:10 states: “Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Look, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison to test you, and you will suffer tribulation for ten days. Be faithful even unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
It is believed by some that this verse is a reference to the Ten Days of Awe.

Importantly, the Ten Days of Awe begins with the Feast of Trumpets and ends with the Day of Atonement. Anyone familiar with the recently popular teachings in Christendom on the Seven Feasts of the Lord (Leviticus 23) will recognize that the fall feasts of Trumpets and Atonement are associated with the second coming of Christ (just as the spring feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits and Pentecost are associated with His first coming). The symbolism of the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teru’ah) is associated with resurrection and rapture, while the symbolism of the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is associated with the victory of Christ (who is both the King of Kings and High Priest) over His enemies and His atonement for the sins of His people. These teaching originated with the “Messianic Jewish” movement in Christianity. Messianic Jews are those who have accepted Jesus Christ as the Messiah and point Gentile Christians to the Old Testament roots of New Testament teachings.

To be clear, I am not aware that anyone is claiming that the second coming is about to occur and that is not the purpose of summarizing these views. If anything, given all the buzz about the present alignment of the constellations signaling a possible fulfilment of Revelation 12, the timing would seem to be more in line with the “beginning of sorrows” of Matthew 24:3-8 and Revelation 6:1-7 but this is all purely speculative. And, once again, one does not need to accept these teachings to recognize their potentially profound influence in the unfolding events of our world. It is enough that many people do believe them and will act accordingly, as might others seeking to exploit opportunities presented during these impending events.

As it happens, I will be leading a group to Israel during the Ten Days of Awe. I do happen to believe that the last days are upon us and Christ’s return is imminent – meaning years rather than decades. I think it is possible that coming events of 2017 will in retrospect be seen as the beginning of sorrows, but I am not making predictions, only being attentive as we are warned to be in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11. If it turns out that the coming weeks are pivotal, I can’t think of a better place from which to observe them than in Israel. But whether or not they are, my duty as a Christian remains the same: to love and serve my King to the best of my ability all the days of my life.

The Bible says to count it all joy when you face various trials and testing (James 1), and for that reason the entire world – especially Christians – should be grateful today. The looming threat of nuclear war, conventional war, civil war, terrorism, political chaos, awakening volcanoes and super-volcanoes, resurgent diseases with untreatable forms, reckless experimentation with genetic mutation and artificial intelligence, planet-killer asteroids, and many other fearsome things, are simply reminders that this world is temporary but God is eternal, and our hope and trust must be in Him. Trouble and tribulation are designed to remind us to be in but not of this world (John 17:6-19). Just as the threshing sledge (tribulum) was used to separate the wheat from the chaff, tribulation is used by God to separate us, as eternal spiritual beings, from our attachment to the things of this world.

I am blessed to have recently won a five year lawsuit that was part of a continuing eight year international campaign by the global LGBT movement to destroy me for speaking the truth of the Bible against the “gay” agenda around the world. But the far greater blessing is the spiritual maturity I experienced in the crucible of suffering for the Gospel. Persecution, which believers everywhere will eventually suffer on a large scale, is the refiner’s fire. Because of it, I am not afraid of what might occur in the near or more distant future related either to prophecy or just the growing evil of this world.

On Monday I will begin a Forty Day personal prayer and repentance campaign. I will repent for my sins and those of my nation. I will pray for our president and the healing of our land. I will pray for the Gospel to reach every unsaved person in this world, including my enemies. I will pray for every other thing the Holy Spirit brings to my mind. I will do this as statement of faith in God and my desire to be more closely conformed to the character of Christ. In all of this things I will pray to the Father, with Christ, “Thy will not my will be done.” Again, I invite you to join me, and to encourage others to do the same.

The Populists Take the Bait in Charlottesville, VA.

Under normal circumstances the first question most people ask after a fight has broken out is “Who started it?” because we all know that while “it takes two to tango,” there’s almost always an instigator and it isn’t necessarily the person who threw the first punch. When it comes to mob psychology and the phenomenon of rioting or war, identifying the instigator is a little trickier because there’s often an unseen hand stirring the pot of social unrest. In the “white nationalist” incident in Charlottesville, VA, I suspect the instigator is the same network of Bush, Clinton and Obama deep-state intelligence agents, politicians and street activists that’s been working since the election to remove President Trump.

Importantly, this is a network of one-world statists with a common cultural-Marxist worldview. The tools of their trade are ideological polarization to create social and political factions, inflammatory propaganda to breed emotionalism and “group-think” in those opposing factions, and staged street activism to incite conflict between them (conflict usually of a political nature but sometimes of the physical sort). Tactically, they almost always lead with the left because leftists are easier to manipulate, and they use them as provocateurs to get a counter-reaction from the right. Their strategy today is to sucker conservatives into following extreme hard right populists into a war for the streets just as occurred in Germany after WWI. I’ve been warning of this since 2009: http://www.scottlively.net/2016/03/17/there-will-be-blood/ , though my prediction of violence was a bit premature.

The Black Lives Matter movement is a big component of the strategy, complete with Soros-funded rent-a-mobs and roving “community organizers” looking for the next opportunity to stage a “spontaneous” riot against the police. But there’s a much larger target than the police in this strategy: it is the entire “right wing.” The purpose of leftist social agitation is not “social justice” (as many of BLM’s “useful idiot” foot soldiers believe), it is to inflame the right. They want war, in whatever form they can get it, because it’s in the chaos of war that the elites make their greatest gains toward a global socialist government. The pattern is similar to how our intelligence agencies have conducted “regime-change” operations in foreign nations for decades (making them all the greater hypocrites for their breathless “Russian collusion” narrative) and now we see a version of it here it home.

I’ve stated publicly that I think the takedown of Bill Cosby, just as BLM was about to be launched, was a part of this project. “America’s Dad,” with his vast reservoir of good-will among white Americans, and a history of rebuking leftist pop-culture stupidity in the Black community (like telling wanna-be gang-bangers to pull up their pants) was the biggest potential threat to their plan. Reviving quarter-century-old allegations of sexual impropriety against Mr. Cosby was a preemptive strike, like taking out an anti-aircraft battery before flying in the bombers. http://www.scottlively.net/2014/12/24/bad-moon-on-the-rise-bill-cosby-ferguson-and-obama/

The Bill Cosby incident is, in my view, directly related to the Charlotte incident, because they are part of the same conspiracy to create race war – or any kind of civil war they can get — in America. You have to think like a “war gamer” to understand how this works and remember that the war gamers of the deep state have almost unlimited resources to play their games with, a broad, birds-eye view of the entire battlefield, and a very long view of history.

I’m a 5th generation Yankee from Massachusetts with relatives who died in the civil war, so I have no particular love for the confederate flag. However, I have no sympathy for the people trying to ban it, in part because I recognize that Southerners’ respect for the confederate flag is not a defense of slavery or racism. But mostly I recognize the present attack on the flag as deliberate provocation for war. The attack is not motivated by idealism but cynical political opportunism. Messing with somebody’s flag is about the surest way to start a fight there has ever been in the history of the world. It’s especially effective for drawing out zealots and crazies.

That having been said, the organizers of the Charlotte march are either completely stupid not to have realized they were walking into a trap, or they were in on the conspiracy. Likely it was a bit of both, since it defies reason that these groups aren’t infiltrated by undercover government agents. If you’re a war gamer, there’s no better asset on the field than your own agent posing as an enemy extremist. I always suspected, without proof, that the Westboro Baptist Church “God Hates Fags” group was their asset in the “gay marriage” battle. What better way to hurt the pro-family movement than to have a supposedly “anti-gay” group stage obscene protests at the funerals of combat veterans in front of network television cameras. What better way to discredit conservative populists than TV footage of rallies where conservatives mix with Nazis (real or planted) carrying racist and antisemitic signs.

I was once a leftist and hung out with the very type of people being described as “counter-protesters” at Charlottesville. I had hair half-way down my back and sometimes wore a ratty denim jacket with a button that read “Smash the State.” I was hanging with that crowd in 1977 when “gay” Nazi Frank Collins organized the infamous Nazi march on Skokie, Illinois (which actually took place in Chicago). Http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-neo-nazi-skokie-march-flashback-perspec-0312-20170310-story.html

My fellow leftist travelers were simply giddy at the prospect of going to Illinois “to throw rocks at the Nazis” (which some of them did). There wasn’t a hint of “social justice” in their hearts, only eagerness to indulge in rioting with virtual impunity. Being a rather naive young man, I was a little shocked at their cynicism, but I’ve learned over the years it’s the true nature of a great many on the left. I’ve since observed with my own eyes – as a conservative leader being protested by them – that nothing has changed about leftist street activism over the years. There’s a large core of semi-transient twenty and thirty somethings (a subset of whom are hard-core anarchists) and a smattering of grey haired holdovers from the 60s, and they all show up whenever there’s a rally or protest on the issue of the day: abortion, “gay rights,” environmentalism, Black Lives Matter, whatever.

That’s who the majority of Charlottesville counter-protesters were, notwithstanding media efforts to portray them all as local concerned citizens. Almost certainly a few were posing as alt-rightists, carrying the most offensive signs.

I’ve been writing about the phenomenon of social polarization as a tactic of the elites for years and recently shown how this strategy operates in the Obama/Clinton/Bush/Soros “Purple Revolution” against President Trump, predicting growing street violence in 2017. http://www.scottlively.net/2017/06/22/progress-report-on-the-purple-revolution/

The left wants war and chaos, and they want conservatism to be equated with Nazism. They got a two-fer in Charlottesville. We must defeat both of those goals without descending to their level to do it. That means re-grounding conservatism in Biblical values and countering propaganda-driven emotionalism with clear-headed rationalism and a focus on healthy, positive goals.

What’s Next on the ‘Gay’ Agenda after Transgenderism?

The “gay” agenda is as old as the LGBT or “gay” movement itself. Every movement has an agenda, of course, which is simply the purpose for which it was founded. The ultimate goal of the “gay” movement has always been the elimination of the restrictions on sexual “freedom” imposed by Judeo-Christian civilization. Others have desired this result, but homosexuals have always pursued it hardest because their sexual appetites deviate furthest from the Biblical “one flesh” norm of lifetime heterosexual monogamy, thus engendering the greatest degree of condemnation. For example, male homosexuality was a capital offense under the Mosaic Law, while a limited form of polygamy was discouraged but tolerated. In other words, “gays” have the most to lose under a Biblically-influenced legal and social system and thus the greatest motivation to overthrow it.

The prototherian aspiration of the “gay” movement was articulated by the Marquis de Sade, for whom sadism is named. Sade’s Philosophy in the Boudoir (1795) called for the decriminalization of sexual crimes, including specifically pederasty (man/boy sex) and sodomy, on the grounds that they were not actually “against nature” as the common law asserted. Sade was an extreme libertine whose sexual practices included torture and murder, and was sentenced to death (in absentia) in 1772 for sodomizing his manservant and for poisoning prostitutes. While in his time he was recognized as a reprobate driven by insanity and/or demonic possession, his concept of “sexual freedom” thrives today in popular culture.

The LGBT movement was formally organized in the mid 1800s in Germany by Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, founder of the Scientific Humanitarian Committee with the stated goal of decriminalizing sodomy. The term “homosexual” was coined at that time to cast sodomy as a medical condition rather than a moral weakness, and Ulrichs pioneered the “born that way” argument with his “Third Sex” theory of homosexuality. His successor, Magnus Hirschfeld, coined the term “transvestite.” “Gay rights” first went mainstream in Germany in the 1920s and 30s where it was championed by the Society for Human Rights (SHR) whose most notorious member was Ernst Roehm, head of the dreaded Nazi Sturmabteilung or “Storm Troopers.”

The earliest, but short-lived, American “gay rights” entity was a chapter of the SHR launched in Chicago in 1924 by a German-American soldier named Henry Gerber. More instrumental to the cause was Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfort School (which birthed Cultural Marxism) and his strategy of defeating Judeo-Christian civilization by “elimination of the monogamic…and patriarchal family.” From the US, the movement went global in the “sexual revolution” of the 1960s, the groundwork for which was laid in the late 1940s by the “Father of Gay Rights” Harry Hay, and in-the-closet “gay” activist Alfred Kinsey. In the Stonewall Riot of 1969, the movement abandoned its pretext of seeking only “tolerance” and began aggressively pursuing total political control. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the “Father of Gay Cultural Supremacy,” assured that outcome by writing all five of the majority opinions of the court that enshrined LGBT political goals in constitutional law.

The fifth and final of these rulings, establishing “gay marriage” by judicial fiat in the Obergefell v Hodges case, has been perceived by many as the final blow to Biblical sexual values, with the transgender fight seen as simply a “mop-up” operation. However, the order in which LGBT “rights” were championed gives a clue as to what comes next, and it is actually the biggest and most consequential fight in the so-called culture war.

The fight to decriminalize sodomy was first and represented a challenge to notions of sexual conduct in law. Concurrent with that effort was 1) the promotion of heterosexual promiscuity, and 2) a change in the legal definition of sodomy from it’s common-law grounding in Leviticus 18:22-23 which forbids male homosexuality and sex with animals by either gender. (Classically, sodomy thus has two forms: sex between two people of the same gender and sex with animals.) From that very specific relationship-focus, modern statutory law shifted to banning oral and anal sexual relations by either gender. This drew the increasingly promiscuous heterosexual population into the fight and ensured sodomy’s eventual decriminalization. To show just how contemporary that fight really is, consider that the 2012 repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the United States military first required the legalization of sex with animals, because sodomy was still defined according to the common law.

Next came the battle for “gay marriage” which attacks the “one flesh” model for marriage and the natural family, the cornerstone of civilization.

The supposedly “last” and current fight is over transgenderism which goes much deeper and attacks the very bedrock on which civilization’s cornerstone rests. It challenges what it means to be human by attacking the fundamental order of creation – the binary nature of gender – which is a reflection of the very image of God in humanity (Genesis 1:27).

Ultimately, the “gay” agenda is simply a sub-plot of the larger Satanic agenda and now that LGBT goals appear nearly fully realized, the hidden hands behind them (both human and demonic) are coming into view. The puppet-masters who have made “gay” supremacy possible have been working backward from the branch to the root to bring chaos out of order — the ultimate satanic goal: first confusion of sexuality as conduct, then confusion of marriage and family, then confusion of gender, and next confusion of what the Bible calls “kinds.” It is not just the deconstruction of civilization but the dissolution of all boundaries between human and animal and machine, to produce creatures that are a blend of all three.

We are witnessing the end-game before our very eyes but few recognize what they are seeing. What is next in the LGBT agenda is transhumanism, the redefinition of humanness and emergence of human/animal/machine chimeral forms.  Satan is fashioning a final comprehensive counterfeit alternative to the creation over which Man finally assumes that he has accessed the Tree of Life and is persuaded that he is God, destroying himself and “goodness” itself in the process.

Culture War Victory Still Possible for Conservatives

What we call the pro-family movement is a component of the larger conservative movement and deals with matters of sexuality and the natural family. Its American roots are in the cultural backlash to the Marxist revolution of the 1960s that turned family-centered society on its head and swapped the Judeo-Christian morality of our founding for Soviet-style “political correctness.”

Before the 1960s there wasn’t any need for a “pro-family” movement because family values had been the overwhelming consensus of the western world for centuries. Indeed, so surprised were Americans about the cultural revolution that it took nearly twenty years for the conservatives to mount a truly effective response to it. That came under Ronald Reagan in the 1980s.

The 60’s revolution was not grounded in the Marxist orthodoxy of Lenin and Stalin, but the Cultural Marxism of Herbert Marcuse’s Frankfort School, which envisioned sexual anarchy, not a “workers revolt,” as the key to dismantling Judeo-Christian civilization. The natural core constituency for this ideology was the underground “gay” movement whose dream of social acceptance was not possible without a complete transformation of American sexual morality. Thus, beginning in the late 1940s, Marxist organizer Harry Hay, so-called “father of the American gay movement” was also “father” of the (then hidden) army of “gay” activists most responsible for the “culture war” that exploded in the 60’s and continues today.

America’s Marxist revolution was therefore a “sexual revolution” whose overwhelming success vindicated Marcuse’s destructive vision and became the primary tool of the one-world government elites for softening resistance to their domination by breaking the family-centered society which is every nation’s greatest source of strength, stability and self-sufficiency.

Importantly, though primarily driven behind the scenes by “gays,” the first goal was not legitimization of homosexual sodomy but the normalization of heterosexual promiscuity. This was the motive and strategy that drove “closeted” 1940s and 50s homosexual activist Alfred Kinsey’s fraudulent “science” attacking the marriage-based sexual ethic as “repressive” and socially harmful. It also drove the launch of the modern porn industry, beginning with Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Magazine (Hefner called himself “Kinsey’s pamphleteer”). It drove and defined the battles in the courts where sexual morality was systematically “reformed” by Cultural Marxist elites on the US Supreme Court: contraception on demand to facilitate “fornication without consequences” (Griswold v Connecticut 1966), abortion on demand as the backup system to failed contraception (Roe v Wade 1973), and finally legalization of homosexual sodomy (Lawrence v Texas 2003).

Note the thirty year gap between Roe v Wade and Lawrence v Texas. That major delay in the Marxist agenda was achieved by the election of Ronald Reagan, under whom the pro-family movement became a major political force. That gap also highlights a critical fact: that “street activism” may be essential to any political cause but the real key to the culture war is the Supreme Court. By 1981 when Ronald Reagan took power the Marxists had nearly succeeded in collapsing the nation’s family and economic infrastructure and the LGBT juggernaut had come completely out of the shadows and taken its place at the head of the cultural blitzkrieg it had been steering from the beginning. Reagan stopped that juggernaut by putting Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, the lion of constitutional originalism who wrote the majority opinion in Bowers v Hardwick (1986) which affirmed (not created) the constitutional right of states to criminalize homosexual sodomy and other harmful sexual conduct in the public interest.

Reagan and Scalia stopped the sexual revolution in its tracks and made it possible for the pro-family movement to begin restoring family values in society, which we strove diligently to do. I got my start in Christian social activism in those heady days and served as State Communications Director for the No Special Rights Act in Oregon in 1992 which forbade the granting of civil rights minority status based on sexual conduct. We fell short in Oregon but a Colorado version of our bill passed the same year. We had in essence won the culture war with that victory given that the Supreme Court had previously ruled that minority status designation required three things: a history of discrimination, political powerlessness, and immutable (unchangeable) status (such as skin color). We had a slam-dunk win on at least two of the three criteria and it would have been just a matter of time before we passed the No Special Rights law from coast to coast.

However, Reagan had been prevented by the elites from putting a second Scalia on the court in the person of Robert Bork, and was forced by the unprecedented political “borking” of Mr. Bork to accept their man Anthony Kennedy to fill the seat instead. Just ten years later, Kennedy served his function by writing the majority opinion killing the Colorado law in Romer v Evans (1996), audaciously declaring that the court didn’t need to apply its three-part constitution test to the No Special Rights Act because it was motivated by “animus” (hate) and thus did not represent a legitimate exercise of the state’s regulatory authority. The ruling was all the more outrageous given that it was only possibly through a blatant abuse of the court’s own judicial authority. Kennedy’s “disapproval = hate” lie set the tone for the political left from that point forward.

In Lawrence v Texas, Kennedy delivered the coup-de-grace to Justice Scalia by striking down Bowers v Hardwick and brazenly ruling that “public morality” cannot be the basis for law. Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority in all five SCOTUS opinions that have, in essence, established homosexual cultural supremacy in America, including the infamous and utterly unconstitutional Obergefell v Hodges (2015) “gay marriage” decision. He is, in my opinion, the worst and most culturally destructive jurist in the history of the court: the culprit (among many villainous candidates) most responsible for the current dysfunctional state of the family in America.

So where’s the “bright future” amidst this lamentation? It’s in the promise made and so-far kept by President Donald Trump to appoint only constitutional originalists to the supreme court. It is in the pleasantly surprising discovery that his first pick, Neil Gorsuch, seems from his first comments as a “supreme” to be a perfect choice to fill the “Scalia seat” on the court. It is in the hopeful rumors that Anthony Kennedy is about to retire, and the simple fact that ultra-hard leftist Ruth Bader Ginsberg and leftist Steven Breyer are of an age that their seats could at any time be vacated by voluntary or involuntary retirement.

In short, the bright future of the pro-family movement is in the hands of the man we hired to drain the swamp in Washington DC, and who hasn’t yet backed down in that fight despite the remarkable scorched-earth campaign of destruction and discreditation being waged against him by the establishment elites of both parties, Hollywood and the media.

I must admit that after Obergefell I began to think that the pro-family movement had lost the culture war, but I now believe there is real hope, not just for reclaiming some lost ground, but possibly of reversing all of the “gains” of the hard left over the past half century. A solid majority of true constitutional originalists could actually restore the legal primacy of the natural family in America fairly quickly, and our cultural healing could quickly follow.

As the leftist elites and street activists continue their all-hands-on-deck attempted “borking” of President Trump, let’s not forget why they’re doing it. His political survival means the end of theirs. I can’t think of a brighter future than that for our nation.

World War D, Part 4: Why the Left has Slammed into Reverse on Russia

Demublican and Republicrat elites portray Donald Trump as a clueless boob and many seem to believe their own propaganda. As a Christian I don’t endorse some of his boorish actions, but there is no question that Trump the President is the same “think outside the box” political genius as Trump the Candidate, continuing to win the populist majority by disdaining the political correctness that makes nearly all other politicians slaves of the leftist media.

Never in our nation’s history has a president faced such a massive array of opponents united across partisan lines on so many simultaneous battle fronts. Not even Ronald Reagan suffered this level of hostility, misrepresentation and sabotage: partly because the elites had already forced him to accept their man George H.W. Bush as Vice President, and partly because Reagan’s anti-Soviet focus did not overly conflict with their own geopolitical agenda on such things as US hegemony in banking and oil. They basically tolerated President Reagan’s conservative domestic agenda (with some legislative foot-dragging by “Moderates”), knowing they could reverse it once Bush took over: and they were only forced to “go to the mattresses” once – to stop him from putting a second Scalia on the Supreme Court in the form of Judge Robert Bork (and to instead nominate the Quistling Anthony Kennedy, father of “gay” cultural supremacy).

President Donald Trump, on the other hand, is their worst nightmare. He not only won the election despite all their best – and highly public – efforts to defeat him, but he did so with the backing of a huge army of patriotic populists cognizant (fully so by the election if not before) of the existence, nature and tactics of the global elites. This is the audience for his Tweets, which explains both their tone and why he will never stop sending them. (Populists love a bare-knuckle street fighter.)

Compounding the globalist nightmare is Mr. Trump’s ideological, though not yet transactional ally, Vladimir Putin who is backed by an even larger percentage of patriotic populists in the Russian Federation. The elites are simply apoplectic at the thought that the American and Russian populists will eventually recognize the astonishing similarity of their moral and fiscal conservatism and unify against the globalist agenda. This is the real reason that Obama and McCain worked so desperately to trigger a hot war with Russia before Trump could be inaugurated, and why both the leftist and neo-conservative media have continuously perpetuated the false premise that US/Russian “collusion” is the real crime behind the “Russian election tampering” (fake news) scandal. Since the fall of Communism in 1991, the increasingly Christian Russians are NOT our enemy. Unfortunately, “Big Lie” repetition works, which is why Adolf Hitler perfected it during the Third Reich.

This is so very devious, especially by the neo-con media, who are now singing to the conservative choir that Obama should be investigated and punished for “collusion” with Russia. It’s akin to the continuing manipulation of conservatives regarding Syria, tricking them into backing illegal military strikes there by portraying Obama as “weak” for not enforcing his “red line,” though we all learned at the time that the supposed Assad use of chemical weapons was almost certainly a false flag, as was the recent US strike on the same “chemical weapon” pretext – unverified by any independent monitors.

To this latter point, I suggested at the time that ok-ing the latest Syria strike was probably the elites’ price for finally confirming President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, now Justice Neil Gorsuch. That’s just an educated guess, but what’s not guesswork is the larger strategy they had in play to neutralize the president: impeachment (or forced resignation ala Nixon).

The key to the impeachment strategy was James Comey, the long-serving Clinton Family fixer whom they moved like a Queen on the D.C. chessboard, finally elevating him to FBI Director. Republican Comey was perfect for the bipartisan Trump takedown desired by the entire left, and the GOP establishment in leadership of both chambers of congress. But, the unpredictable political genius Donald Trump bided his time, letting the flood of leaks and the frenzy of media impeachment hysteria make him appear impotent, and then completely turned the tables on his adversaries in one fell swoop. He fired Comey without notice while Comey was in California and (allegedly) a team from Trump’s newly secured Justice Department (under Trump loyalist Jeff Sessions) was in D.C. scooping up all of Comey’s records, files, notes, video recordings and whatever else may have been there.

(That was the assertion of this article http://usdefensewatch.com/2017/05/the-inside-story-on-how-trump-dropped-the-hammer-on-james-comey/, which fact I cannot independently verify, but appears consistent with the way subsequent events played out, and may be the real reason Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation – so as to retain his legal right to hands-on control of the FBI in that matter.)

Importantly, President Trump did not have full control of any part of the US government when he took office, not even the Executive Branch. Nearly all of the career government workers in Washington in all three branches of government were appointed or hired by the elite political class, going all the way back to President George H.W. Bush in 1989, followed by Clinton, W. Bush, and then Obama. Most were either Bush or Clinton/Obama loyalists, and thus presumably enemies of Mr. Trump.

It took most of his first 100 Days just to get his own people into the strategic seats of power. Meanwhile, both parties engaged in sometimes open warfare with him on every act or issue in which it was possible to delay or deny him a victory. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell forced him to dance the bipartisan two-step on every policy goal, and repeatedly pulled the rug out from under him – willingly suffering political damage to themselves in order to hurt the president. That continues.

However, once President Trump had fired James Comey, the impeachment strategy was gutted. Comey did an almost full reversal under congressional questioning a couple of weeks later (likely to save his own butt) and the Special Prosecutor process was forced to unfold without its intended defendant.

Three things happened at this point. First, the elites in both parties realized they’d not only been blindsided by Mr. Trump, but that he was now in tentative de-facto if not legal control of the Special Prosecutor’s office by virtue of his moral victory and (presumably) Session’s possession of documents and intelligence harmful to the anti-Trump conspirators. Second, the Democrats realized that it was no longer as much to the Republicans political advantage to continue working with them against Trump, but worse, that a broader Special Prosecutor investigation of the 2016 election could, and likely will, go badly for them. This is why they suddenly shifted into reverse on Russia and began telling all their people to back off the election hacking narrative. (I wouldn’t be surprised to see admissions on the left that Trump is innocent and suggestions that the Special Prosecutor is now unnecessary). Third, the largest impediment to President Trump’s full control over of the Executive Branch was now removed.

In my view, President Trump’s first “100 Days” really started with the Comey firing. I expect to see a steady increase in his ability to enforce his agenda, and a concurrent steady shift back to the positions he held during the campaign, hopefully including enhanced relations with Russia. The Left will fall back to Marxist v Fascist street-revolution mode as their power in government and the courts slips. The GOP establishment will continue to generate as much heat as they can on the president but increasingly fall back to deal-making mode to maximize their personal power and minimize conservative wrath in the mid-term primaries.

The real Trump presidency has now begun.

‘Gay Pride’ and the Wrath of God

According to the third century Christian monks called the Desert Fathers, “pride” topped the list of the infamous Seven Deadly Sins. However, the Bible itself identifies homosexuality as the most deadly, giving it the special designation “toeva” (abomination) in the Leviticus 18 list of worst-possible sins which cause the land itself to “vomit out” its inhabitants, and making clear that widespread homosexuality was the cause of the incineration of Sodom and Gomorrah (Jude 1:7, referencing Genesis 19). That incident, unique in Biblical history, expressly linked male homosexual sodomy (and that sin alone) with the last-days destruction of the world by God.

So what should faithful Christians and Jews think of “Gay Pride,” the international month-long celebration of homosexual sodomy that occurs every June, drawing support from numerous governments around the world?

The answer should be the clearest for the western nations with a Christian heritage, since the New Testament strongly reaffirms the condemnation of homosexuality found in the Old Testament. Romans 1:18-32 singularly identifies homosexuality as the sin that epitomizes the “reprobate mind” and the apostasy of the last days (see also 2 Timothy 3, Jude 1 and 2 Peter 2). Yet it is many of these “Christian” nations that are the most “affirming” of homosexual perversion. But Jewish Israel, especially Tel Aviv, is not far behind.

All cultures recognize that flags symbolize the powers that rule over a given territory. Raising its flag is the first action taken by any conquering power. How then should we interpret the raising of the rainbow flag across so many nations of the world, not just in June but whenever the “gay” movement is formally acknowledged? For example, on the US Supreme Court’s issuance of the Obergefell “gay marriage” ruling, Barack Obama used colored lights to bath the White House in a rainbow flag. Importantly, no other special interest group receives such honor by the ruling authorities. Spiritually-minded people should recognize this as a phenomenon with deep significance.

Just what does the rainbow itself symbolize and why do the “gays” cloak themselves in it?

The rainbow is the Biblical symbol of the presence and authority of God from the story of Noah’s Flood, foundational to all the Abrahamic faiths, reaffirmed to Jews and Christians in Ezekiel 1:28, and to Christians in Revelation 4:3 in the New Testament. Could there be any more audacious statement of defiance of God than to hijack His symbol to represent the worldwide legitimization of sexual deviance He explicitly condemns? Could this be the meaning of the prophecy of the Antichrist in Revelation 6:2?: “I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.”

Does this verse definitively associate the “gay” movement with the Antichrist of the last days? No. Neither does the spiritual comparison of Jerusalem with “Sodom and Egypt” under the Antichrist in Revelation 11:8. Nor do modern “gay rights” laws that require Christian businesses such as bakers, printers and florists to endorse homosexuality – so reminiscent of restrictions on “buying and selling” imposed on those refusing to take the “Mark of the Beast” (Revelation 13:17). Still, it should give every Christian pause that the Bible’s many warnings about homosexuality from Genesis to Revelation are tied so closely to the last days and to extreme rebellion triggering God’s wrath, especially when these passages are viewed collectively.

Indeed, the ancient prophecy of Isaiah contains the following verse that seems so timely today:

“The expression of their faces bears witness against them, And they display their sin like Sodom; They do not even conceal it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves” (Isaiah 3:9).

This appears a perfect caption for the scene at “Gay Pride” parades, and invokes the many horrors that afflict the “gay” community: from a long string of gruesome “gay on gay” slayings such as the Jeffrey Dahmer cannibal killings, Matthew Shepard and Giani Versace, to the lingering movement-wide plague of AIDS and other frightening STDs (carefully minimized by the pro-“gay” press).

The current “gay” supremacist version of the LGBT movement was born June 28th, 1969 in the notorious Stonewall Riots, when homosexual men violently attacked police officers seeking to arrest a boy “drag queen” prostitute at the Mafia-owned Stonewall Bar on Christopher Street in New York City. That was the origin of “Gay Pride Day,” and of the vicious, implacable army of “gay” activists who have battled ever since to transform every institution of western society into a tool of LGBT advocacy. Since that day, any person who opposes them in any meaningful way faces an intense campaign of personal destruction. By these means they have nearly achieved the end of the family-centered order of civilization my generation took for granted just a a half-century ago.

The Apostle Peter wrote only two short letters in the Bible. The second of these is devoted to prophecy about the last days, and it’s special emphasis was to warn the church about a form of heresy that would then emerge. In Christianity, heresy is a set of beliefs that contradict the clear teaching of the Bible. According to Peter, the last days heresy will be rooted in beliefs about sexuality “Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned,” he wrote in 2 Peter 2:2. He went on to define this heresy by reference to four Biblical texts addressing sexual sin, including especially homosexuality. A close reading of 2 Peter 2 strongly suggests that the last days heresy is so-called “gay theology.”

Christians should not be surprised that the world today, and the US especially, is in such a mess. We’ve been steadily losing the “culture war” that in so many ways is a contest pitting LGBT values against ours. And if these are the last days, that’s the way things are supposed to be, However, our responsibility to stand steadfastly for truth has never changed and is not contingent on circumstances.

We must always “contend earnestly for the faith entrusted once for all to the saints” (Jude 1:3). That means having the courage to speak the truth ourselves, to work vigorously to purge the heresy of “gay theology” from the church, and to continue to fight the culture war to win it, trusting God for whatever outcome will result. Lastly, we must rescue as many souls as we can from the seductive evil of “Gay Pride,” knowing that the wrath it heralds is too terrible to wish upon even our worst enemies.

World War D, Part 3: The “Purple Revolution” is About to Run Red

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.”
http://www.scottlively.net/2016/11/17/world-war-d-part-2/

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.

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.”

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
