Perv-pandering Pence pivots to compromised Christian college

During the bulk of his tenure as Donald Trump’s supposedly loyal vice president, my opinion of Mike Pence rose higher than my previous view. He first appeared on my RINO radar a few years earlier when, as Indiana governor, he caved to pressure from the LGBTs and killed strong and needed legislation designed to protect Christian businesses from attack by homosexual activists who use state and local anti-discrimination laws as an offensive weapon rather than the defensive shield they were sold to the public as. My column of April 1, 2015, titled “Indiana Meets the Borg,” opened with these two paragraphs:

“Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.” That was the message of the Borg to Capt. Jon-Luc Picard of the starship Enterprise on the television series “Star Trek: Next Generation.” The Borg was a conglomerate of species forcibly transformed into cybernetic drones controlled by a hive mind called the Collective. The Borg grew ever stronger by appropriating and exploiting the assets of whatever new species it encountered as it roamed the universe in pursuit of its insatiable lust for power over the lives of others. Both individual and corporate victims of the Borg were assimilated into the Collective, losing their identity to the hive mind.

“This week, the state of Indiana met the Borg, which on planet earth is spelled LGBT. Like Capt. Picard, the governor of Indiana, Mike Pence, has attempted to reason with Borg and learned that there is no compromise with the Collective. “Resistance is futile,” said Borg drone Tim Cook, the formerly human representative of the now-Collectivist entity Apple Computers. The refrain was echoed by a chorus of other drones, including some from the newly Borg-acquired National Collegiate Athletic Association.

[I went on to explain how the LGBT Borg got such power in corporate American in the first place.]

I went easy on Pence in that piece because he seemed to at least be willing to allow a weak and watered down version of the bill to become law (which later occurred), but I ranked him as a rising RINO on my personal scorecard. Frankly, in retrospect, I believe Pence’s moral compromise on what was probably the most important Bible-based policy of his career was what qualified him in the minds of the Purple Uniparty puppet-masters as worthy of the vice presidency under Trump. They needed someone as clean on the outside but dirty on the inside as Bush 41, who served the same “ace in the hole” function under Reagan.

Hole-card Bush wasn’t needed to fall on a grenade like Pence was: Bush did his dirty work undoing Reagan’s conservative policies after Reagan termed-out – as the “New World Order” president who (intriguingly) gave his defining speech on that theme one decade to the day before 9/11. Hmm. In contrast, Pence was forced to make the ultimate political sacrifice for the Purple team by committing what was arguably treason on J6 (by refusing to allow a vote by Congress on pausing the certification of the fraudulent election pending investigation) and lost any chance of earning the presidency. In further service to his masters he endured the humiliation of a pitiful run against Trump in the 2024 presidential primary.

So what was Pence’s reward for giving so much to the globalist cause? A plum posting to a lucrative A-list NGO, foundation, corporate board or Ivy League university? LOL. No! He was shunted off to puny, pedestrian Grove City College, most famous in pro-family circles as the Christian college that employed fellow “gay pandering” turncoat Warren Throckmorton as a psychology professor.

Some of my longer-term readers may recall that Throckmorton was the snake-in-the-grass who single-handedly launched the decade-long campaign of personal destruction against me that culminated in the federal lawsuit accusing me of “crimes against humanity” for teaching the biblical view of homosexuality in Uganda. I did so at a Kampala seminar in early March of 2009, and also gave comments to Ugandan members of parliament in their National Assembly Hall, urging them to focus not on punishment but on prevention and rehabilitation in their planned but as of then unwritten legislation opposing the normalization of homosexuality. I cited my own personal experience of choosing rehab instead of going to jail for a drunk-driving conviction. (Legally speaking, I consider alcoholism and homosexuality to be roughly equivalent behavioral disorders.)

Immediately following my comments, while I was still in Kampala, Throckmorton launched a surprise attack against me, falsely claiming I was pushing for forced therapy for homosexuals. I was utterly shocked, because even though I had not met him personally, I considered him to be a pro-family peer. He had put out an exceptional video for the ex-“gay” movement titled “I Do Exist” and was well respected in pro-family circles. But apparently, the LGBTs found some dirt on him or otherwise managed to flip him because his knife-stab in my back was only the first in a new mission to attack any Christians who threatened the LGBT cause. I was further shocked when, upon confronting him by phone, he defended his actions and doubled-down on them. He created an entire section on his website devoted to attacks upon me.

I was only one of several, including the eminent Christian historian David Barton, who had recently stoked Throckmorton’s ire by venturing onto the pro-family battlefield with some strong pro-family comments. Upon reading an article about Barton’s publisher suddenly canceling the publication of his book “Jefferson Lies” (refuting lies about Jefferson), I noticed an awfully familiar pattern in the discussion about how the cancellation came about. I called Barton and pieced together that, yes indeed, Throckmorton had orchestrated the attack. I then wrote two articles in Barton’s defense. (See here and here.)

I cite this personal history only to show that I had good cause to ask the leadership of Grove City College in writing to reconsider their relationship with Throckmorton or at least re-affirm the biblical stance on homosexuality. I don’t think any of them replied, but at least I tried.

Since then I haven’t had cause to think much about Grove City College until today, when it was reported on The Gateway Pundit that Pence has been hired by GCC as a “distinguished visiting fellow for the new Center for Faith and Public Life, which appears to have been created just for him. (If anyone can find out who funded it, I’d love to hear from you! I suspect it’s somebody from The Lincoln Project.)

If, as they say, “personnel is policy,” GCC has just made itself a Never Trumper sinking ship, on top of having been a sanctuary for a Bible-defying pro-LGBT saboteur. If I were a parent of college-bound teens, I’d cross this twice-failed “college of Christian compromise” off my list and keep them as far away from the traitor Mike Pence as possible.

The Strong Commonalities of Russia and Israel

All my life I’ve been pro-Israel for reasons I never gave much thought, and several adult Jews I encountered in my troubled life as a teenager were a great blessing to me at pivotal moments. I was decidedly non-religious then – inattentive to the Roman Catholic teachings of my childhood and only casually dabbling in the New Age paganism that constituted my spiritual life from age 12 to 28 (precisely my years of alcoholism and drug addiction.)

My first wife was a similarly non-religious Russian Jewish girl who married me in an Episcopal Church – I don’t think we ever had a single conversation about the traditional faiths we came from in the 18 months or so we were together before my addictions broke us apart. I’ve just always been drawn to Jews by an inner magnet and viewed them favorably as human beings. I never even heard of “Zionism” until I was in my 30s as a staunch evangelical Christian of the pro-Israel Reagan Revolution, and didn’t research it in any meaningful way for at least another decade. (I’ve since published a lot on this topic.)

Arguably, my biggest impact on the world was publishing “The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party” in 1995 with my co-author Kevin Abrams, an Orthodox Jewish Holocaust researcher. Together with a distribution alliance of thousands of Orthodox rabbis in the U.S., we so thoroughly debunked the LGBT movement’s attempt to fabricate a “Gay Holocaust” under the Nazis comparable to the Jewish Holocaust that they were forced to abandon their plans and along with them the “Pink Triangle” (used to identify the relatively few homosexuals in Nazi work camps – not the death camps) as the primary symbol of their movement in the 1980s and early ’90s. The LGBTs then stole the rainbow from the Black Panthers and Jesse Jackson’s “Rainbow Coalition” to replace the triangle.

That book earned me a permanent spot on the SPLC’s hate map and top-level cancellation long before the “cancel culture” ever started. But it also opened countless doors, including being hired by prominent New York Rabbi Samuel Dresner to co-write his last book, on the LGBT theme, when his cancer became too incapacitating. (Sadly, he died before it could be completed.)

I’ve since visited Israel four times, the last in 2017 leading a church group from California, and more recently I spoke in defense of Israel at an international conference in Riga, Latvia, where I was part of a panel discussion with Rabbi Yehuda Glick, then a member of the Israeli Knesset.

Previously, this very same Riga-based Russian-speaking denomination sponsored my wife and me on our year-long speaking tour through the former Soviet Union, including a list of venues in Russia that stretched from Blagoveschensck in the far east all the way to St. Petersburg in the far west. I frequently testify about this tour because it was such a rare and amazing experience. I got to see places and aspects of Russia few Westerners have ever observed firsthand and came away with a deep respect both for the Russian people and for President Putin.

I’ve done missionary work and otherwise traveled in 68 countries so far and I recognize the Russians as the closest in mentality and ideology to American conservatives of any nation in the world – which is why our leftist elites propagandize and war against them so aggressively – to keep us separated at all cost. I respect Putin because I was immersed for months in the country he single-handedly transformed from lawless gangsterism following the collapse of the Soviets to a highly civilized and prosperous society in which entrepreneurialism thrives, conservative solutions like the flat tax are a reality, LGBT propaganda to children is totally banned, and the Russian Orthodox church has purged and replaced virtually every shred of communism.

Ever since OBiden orchestrated the outbreak of war in Ukraine while cynically calling Russia an “unprovoked aggressor,” I’ve done my best to present the truthful Russian side of the story to my readers in contradiction to the false narratives of our corporate media – and to remind my sometimes duped fellow conservatives that our media always lie about everything we care about, so why trust them about Russia? To do this I have diligently sought out the most honest and objective of the pro-Russian writers and pundits and vetted their analyses to the best of my ability.

The biggest turning point in the propaganda war over Ukraine occurred when it became clear to military strategists and honest civilian observers like myself that Putin could not be forced to give up the pro-Russian territories he had liberated and would likely take more Ukrainian territory, including potentially the biggest plum, Odessa. Suddenly, “coincidentally,” Hamas committed its massacre in Israel, conveniently justifying a military and media pivot to Israel and the sharp reduction of Western funding, resupplying and media attention to Ukraine.

I have stated from the beginning that I believe the Oct. 7 massacre was genuine Hamas-driven terrorism but was deliberately unleashed by hidden globalist elites to serve, first, their overarching geopolitical timeline and, second, the parallel necessity of (eventually but inevitably) taking out Iran’s nuclear capabilities. The third reason they let slip the Hamas dogs of war was to further regime change in Israel, because for the first time in its history, modern Israel is under the control of Torah-faithful Orthodox Jews, not the Marxist Torah-defying Fake Jews of New York and London. (And even in the midst of war, the “color revolution” Obama started in 2015 continues under the OBiden administration.

The Muslim world naturally united against Israel after the massacre, which changed the calculus of the Ukraine propaganda war because Russia has (understandably but regrettably) allied with Shiite Iran as a counterbalance to the U.S. alliance with Sunni Saudi Arabia et al. Therefore, almost immediately most pro-Russian writers and pundits began backing Hamas and attacking Israel in their updates – equating Israel with Ukraine as adversaries of Russian interests with key common attributes.

My immediate reaction was the opposite: that it is Russia and Israel who are most alike in the war of geopolitics, while the “Palestinians” are, like Ukraine, bribed-to-the-brim puppets of the same leftist Western elites. It is Israel whose national interests have been increasingly threatened (geographically and politically) over the past half century by encroaching Islamists – backed by the ultra-leftist U.N., just as NATO has incessantly, incrementally encroached on Russia since WWII, backed by the U.N.

Israel is obviously a more complex case because many of the globalist elites in question are (non-resident) Torah-defying Jews with mixed motives and loyalties regarding the Jewish homeland. But in the current context in which the true Orthodox Jews control Israel and Orthodox Christians control Russia, both holding the same Bible-based moral compass on the essential left/right cultural conflicts of our time – while Hamas and Ukraine are both simply tools of regime change by outsiders – the Israel/Russia commonalities are stark and potent.

If I were an adviser to either Israel or Russia, I would be working to translate this line of reasoning into practical policies strengthening the Christian/Jewish alliance along biblical moral and cultural lines and even encouraging the Muslims to join in against the great secular humanist threat to all humanity – satanic transhumanism, the true ultimate goal of our actual common enemy.

Eugenics and America’s Fertility Crisis

Like many voters, I never realized in vitro fertilization was such a big deal politically until Alabama rightfully acknowledged that embryos are human beings and in-state IVF companies reacted by scaling back or shutting down to avoid legal liability for the embryonic lives in their custody. By “chance” this development happened roughly at the same time that cereal manufacturers were exposed for allowing anti-fertility chemicals in breakfast foods.

To be clear, the news media did not imply intent on the part of manufacturers, but I would like to remind everyone that breakfast cereal pioneer John Harvey Kellogg was part of a coalition of powerful American eugenicists who aggressively pushed abortion and forced sterilization policies since the 1910s, before handing off leadership of the (grotesquely racist) global eugenics movement to Adolf Hitler’s Germany in the 1930s after an outraged American public started pushing back. Kellogg’s version of Hitler’s later policies were advanced by his own organization, the Race Betterment Foundation.

If you’re wondering why so many people suddenly need IVF services today to procreate that their numbers can skew elections, perhaps you have your answer – or a partial one: The elites have once again been caught replacing the natural world and its processes (think Monsanto) with artificial ones that, conveniently, also generate income for themselves. (The craven, highly profitable “transgender” surgical industry is another glaring example.)

Ever since Thomas Malthus predicted (falsely) in 1798 that human population would soon outstrip food supplies, “Malthusianism” has been a central tenet and motivator of the global elites. The two obvious questions Malthusianism raised were 1) how to produce more food, and 2) how to limit population. In the present era, Kellogg’s now multinational conglomerate apparently figured out how to do both simultaneously.

But a third obvious question arose among the elite aristos of Malthus’ era (who in many cases were literally “en-titled” members of royal dynasties) who assumed for themselves the right to set laws and social policies to steer the world toward their vision of the future. That question was “If population must be reduced, who do we keep and who do we get rid of?” Out of the contemplation of that question was born “eugenics,” formalized by Charles Darwin’s nephew Francis Galton and expanded worldwide through international conferences and networking. The meme and motto of the movement emerged in the Second International Eugenics Conference (1921) in the form of the infamous “Eugenics Tree” logo, captioned “Eugenics is the self direction of human evolution.”

It is widely believed that eugenics ideology died out after World War II due to its association with Nazi Germany, but in reality it just faded into the background where, due to technological advances in genetics, robotics and artificial intelligence, it slowly but fully morphed into “transhumanism.”

From antiquity in Judeo-Christian civilization, human fertility had always been considered both a personal blessing and a social priority. “Be fruitful and multiply” was one of God’s first commands – and it has never been rescinded despite what people may think under the ever-rising pressure of Malthusian anti-family propaganda by Bill Gates and his ilk.

Biblically speaking, in vitro fertilization is not evil in itself. In at least one instance, when the normal fertilization failed in the Bible, God endorsed an alternative. The story of Judah and Tamar in Genesis 38:1-10 indicates that surrogate impregnation of a woman by a close male relative of her husband was socially expected, even mandated if her husband died. Indeed, when Judah’s son Onan deliberately spilled his seed on the ground during sex with Tamar to avoid his procreative duty to his deceased brother Er, God killed him for it!

Onan’s crime was not masturbation as some teach, but refusal to impregnate Tamar for the perpetuation of Er’s line. It was an anti-fertility crime – as is the presumed elite population-control campaign using anti-fertility chemicals. Let’s not forget that Gates (whose father was a Planned Parenthood board member) and the ultra-corrupt WHO stand accused of putting such chemicals in tetanus vaccines for women in Africa. Leftist media “fact checkers” dispute that, but who believes anything from them after the Twitter Files exposé? Follow the money and the ideology to find the truth.

Prior to advances in anti-fertility chemistry by Big Pharma, surgical sterilization was the primary preventive measure of the eugenicists, and abortion (pre-birth infanticide) was their back-up system. These were relatively small-scale operations from the 1920s through the ’40s, centered on ethnic minorities, but then in the 1950s the elites launched the “sexual revolution” to divorce sexuality from fertility (and family) as a universal social priority and to fully normalize every form of anti-fertility and anti-family practice and policy. The porn industry, the no-fault divorce movement, radical feminist ideology, the abortion industry, the LGBT movement and the pharmaceutical birth-control tsunami were all elements of this strategy that made supposedly “consequence-free” (meaning pregnancy free) sex the highest aim of Western civilization. It has always been about population control.

The weakest link in the eugenicist game plan has always been women, because God designed them as baby-makers and nurturers, physically, emotionally and psychologically. Turning women against their own nature has always required massive effort and expense by the elites, with limited success. Time and life experience has always been on the side of nature with even many of the most virulent self-centered feminists in their teens and 20s later escaping the net and reconnecting with their mothering instincts. I think the attack on women we’re seeing by these same elites using transgenderism is in fact punishment driven by frustration and rage that the Malthusian’s methods just aren’t working. Yes, there is still a large pro-abortion contingent in the electorate, even including women who have otherwise reverted to a more natural version of themselves, but it’s not unbreakable.

I believe the answer to all of it is for men, individually and collectively, to start affirming true femininity and natural womanhood with all the confidence of a conquering army and the passion of an election campaign. Bypass the battlegrounds the left has chosen for themselves and go right to the women, letting them know they are valuable and needed just as God made them. Because the only real antidote to the culture of lies and artificiality enslaving our society today is honest interactions among real people who speak plain truth and pursue a return to the God’s natural order in their own lives. Neither Malthusianism, nor eugenics, nor transhumanism have any place or power in that world.

Easter/Passover is only half the story of salvation

These are the animals which you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat …” – Deuteronomy 14:4

The most profound truth ever revealed to me by the Holy Spirit as an already saved and justified Christian was the centrality of the so-called “two house teaching” to Bible history and prophecy. I summarized it in my article “The Most Important Forgotten Truth of the Bible” and wrote my theology textbook “The Prodigal Son Prophecy” to explain it in detail from the Hebrew cultural perspective of the Apostles and the Prophets.

One central aspect of the two house reality is that Christians and Jews are separate but equal cohorts destined to accept Christ and live in harmony together during the Millennial Kingdom before spending eternity in Heaven with the Father. That’s the hidden underlying message of the Parable of the Prodigal Son explained in my summary.

Importantly, Christians (including many individual ethnic Jews) gain eternal salvation through the First Advent of Christ, while Jews (collectively) and a “mixed multitude” of second-chancers gain salvation through the Second Advent, when God says, “I will pour out on the house of David and on the people of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look on Me, the One they have pierced. They will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a firstborn son” (Zechariah 12:10), an event that can only occur, Paul adds, when “the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Romans 11:25). Paul offers a full treatise on this theme in Romans. Romans 9-11 could stand alone as its own book on the topic (as could chapters 1-8 on the topic of systematic theology).

The Bible teaches the two house reality clearly and plainly for those with eyes to see. A simple pure-Scripture introduction to it is spelled out in Hosea 1-14, Jeremiah 3 and Ezekiel 37 when read in sequence with a Bible literalist perspective.

Symbols and patterns throughout the Bible reinforce the two house reality in amazing ways, including the repeated pairing of symbols: for example, the (10 tribe) House of Israel symbolized as the “vine” (Genesis 49:22; Isaiah 5:3, 7) and the House of Judah (two tribes plus the Levites) as the “fig tree” (Jeremiah 24). The harmony of the two houses is shown by the pairing of these symbols in Bible history in 1 Kings 4:25, “So Judah and Israel lived in safety, every man under his vine and his fig tree” and, in the millennial context, in Zechariah 3:9-10 and Micah 4:1-4.

More relevant as we celebrate Easter/Passover is the pairing of the symbols of the sheep and goats – which, with the ox, lead the list of “clean” animals in Deuteronomy 14:4. Sheep are a symbol of the House of Israel and goats are a symbol of the House of Judah.

Don’t just look at the Passover story to see this, but look at the larger pattern of the resurrection theme in the Bible. The following is from “The Prodigal Son Prophecy”:

“There are three iterations with several common elements in each: a father, a firstborn son, the sacrifice of a lamb, and an object on which the sacrifice was given effect.

“Genesis 22:1-13. The first iteration of this biblical pattern was the near-sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham. Abraham was the father ready to sacrifice his firstborn son on the command of God. At the last moment God Himself provided a substitutionary sacrifice in the form of a sheep. The sheep, instead of Isaac, had his blood shed upon an altar. “By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac on the altar. He who had received the promises was ready to offer his one and only son, even though God had said to him, ‘Through Isaac your offspring will be reckoned.’ Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and in a sense, he did receive Isaac back from death” (Hebrews 11:17-19).

“Exodus 12:1-13. The second iteration of the Passover pattern is found in Exodus 12. All the firstborn males of the land were to be killed by God (as punishment for Pharaoh’s slaughter of the firstborn of the Hebrews during the infancy of Moses.) “Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the female slave, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well” (Exodus 11:5). Only those households displaying the blood of a sacrificial lamb on the lintels and doorposts of their homes were spared.

“The father figure is Pharaoh, and his firstborn son is the first to suffer God’s wrath. The sheep is a one-year-old male. The object on which the sacrificial blood is given effect is the door frame of the house.

“The Gospels. The third iteration is found in each of the four gospels, in the story of the crucifixion of Christ, which occurred, literally, on Passover, immediately preceding the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:4-6). “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed” (1 Corinthians 5:7).

“The Passover pattern was completed in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. God the Father gave His only son (John 3:16). The Father is God. The son is Christ. The lamb is Christ. The object on which His shed blood was given effect was the cross.” [End excerpt.]

Now consider the most significant way the symbol of the goat is associated with the House of Judah. While (except for Passover) sheep and goats are virtually interchangeable in ritual sacrifice under the Mosiac law – only goats (two of them) are designated for the Day of Atonement when the Levitical high priest of the House of Judah enters the Holy of Holies annually with the blood of one goat, to atone for the sins of the people, while the other, the “scapegoat,” carries the sins of the people out into the wilderness. The use of the goat was continued by the House of Judah after Christ had brought salvation to the “Lost sheep of the House of Israel” and remains mandatory for Jews under the Law of Moses – UNTIL the “Day of Atonement” becomes the key event of the SECOND Advent of Christ when he “touches down” to the Mount of Olives per Zechariah 14, with the Host of Heaven (glorified believers among them) at His back (Revelation 19:11-21.)

But importantly, those who choose to remain “goats” in the Millennial Kingdom – instead of joining the Messiah’s sheepfold, where all His followers are united under “Shiloh” (Genesis 49:10) as the single 12-Tribe-plus-former-Gentiles House of Israel – are cast from His presence per Matthew 25:31-41.

Bottom line: Passover/Resurrection Day is only half the story of salvation, awaiting the second coming of Christ to complete the reunification promised by God in numerous passages of Old Testament prophecy.

Postscript: I cited Deuteronomy 14:4 in part to introduce a fascinating interpretation of it by Rabbi Menachem Feldman titled “The Secret Symbolism of the Calf and Goat,” with heavy (but perhaps unintentional) two house overtones – in which (pre-Moses) the goat becomes the symbol of Judah because he was the brother of Joseph (patriarch of the House of Israel) who orchestrated his sale into slavery, after which the brothers faked a story of his death for their father Jacob by smearing the blood of a goat on his coat of many colors.

Indiana Jones and Ashes of the Red Heifer

Until this very morning I did not know that Stephen Spielberg’s character Indiana Jones may have been based on a real person named Vendyl Jones, nor that one actual quest this man was pursuing was to find the ashes of the last-sacrificed red heifer, in addition to the Ark of the Covenant. In response to my recent column “Should Christians support the building of Third Temple?” a longtime supporter sent me the following message based on half-century-old memories:

“About 45 years ago, Vendyl Jones (Indiana Jones) came to our SBC church. His dog was named Indiana. At that time he was searching for the ashes of the red heifer, not the Ark of the Covenant as the movie version told us. He said, and he may or may not be correct, that there have been hundreds of red heifers without spots or blemish, but they will not do. The ashes of the new red heifer must be mixed with the ashes of the previous red heifer. Kind of like the apostolic succession of the red heifer. So he was searching for the container of the ashes of long ago. Important or not I do not know. I followed his work for several decades, and they never found the ashes. And his general theology may not be accurate either. And he was successful in getting several work teams from our church over there to dig, but they found nothing.”

Sure enough, a Google search turned up this fascinating Wikipedia article that opens with this sentence: “Vendyl Miller Jones (May 29, 1930 – December 27, 2010) was an American Noahide scholar who directed archaeological searches for biblical artifacts such as the Ark of the Covenant.” A very colorful and adventurous figure with a theologically unique life’s path certain to be of interest to many WND readers, Vendyl’s life would make a great biographical film in its own right. Along that path he learned that “In 1964, the Journal of Near Eastern Studies reported the 1952 discovery of the Marble Tablets in Beirut, Lebanon. That same year the Copper Scroll was found in Cave No. 3 at Qumran, West Bank, which listed the hiding places of 64 sacred articles which included the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant.”

This revelation inspired him to try to seek out these priceless treasures personally, and he spent many years doing so, moving to Israel and recruiting (as my friend testified above) American Christians to go there and dig for them, including “eight excavations at Qumran, involving over 300 volunteers.” These did recover significant artifacts. His list of accomplishments and high level Israeli allies in this work is quite impressive, but for my purposes the red heifer connection is most interesting.

“While attempting to find or grow a red heifer in order to revive the ancient temple rituals, Jones was an active member in the 2004 attempt to revive the Sanhedrin along with Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of The Temple Institute, and later worked with the President of the Sanhedrin Rabbi Adin Steinzaltz.”

The Temple Institute is the organization driving the Third Temple effort. My wife and I have twice visited its museum in the Hebrew Quarter of Old Jerusalem, which houses a sacrificial altar and all the implements and objects necessary for the restoration of Temple worship, fashioned to precise biblical requirements. The Sanhedrin has in fact been re-constituted and has begun issuing findings in matters of theological concern, such as the reinstitution of the counting of the Jubilees and declaration that the Hebrew year beginning in the fall of 2015 was a Jubilee year – the first recognized in Israel in roughly 2,000 years.

Per Wikipedia, “Jones also claimed to have been the subject of a movie script that was circulated in Hollywood, and which he claimed inspired the character of Indiana Jones. … According to the story, a certain Randolph Fillmore, who had been on one of Jones’s digs, wrote the first draft for ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’; Vendyl became ‘Endy,’ then ‘Indy.’ … According to the now defunct Vendyl Jones website: ‘In 1977, a young man volunteered for one of our archaeological digs. His name was Randy Filmore. He wrote a screenplay based on Vendyl’s experiences and titled it “The Search for the Ashes of the Red Heifer.” Upon returning to the States, Randy contacted Vendyl with the news that he’d found representation for his script in Hollywood. To this day, Vendyl has not heard from Filmore. When Vendyl recounts this story to the press, they often misinterpret it as a claim by Vendyl that he and Indy are the same.'”

Vendyl stated in his book “A Door of Hope: My Search for the Treasures of the Copper Scroll” (2005): “I have never stood up and declared, ‘I am the real Indiana Jones.'” My guess, bolstered by my friend’s testimony, is that he did believe and make that claim (if not in those words) – which may actually be true – but backed way off after getting served with a cease and desist order by some Hollywood megafirm promising personal destruction by legal fire and brimstone if he persisted.

My friend’s comment about the need for the new red heifer ashes to be mixed with the old raises a question I have never seen discussed, and I don’t know of any biblical reference to it. That would be a matter for the Sanhedrin, I suppose. But they and the Temple Institute are pressing ahead with preparations for the sacrifice.

Since I last published on the red heifer theme, I’ve learned three important new facts (from this article):

First, that a massive altar for the red heifer sacrifice has already been built (see photo in the article), indicating to me they are dead serious about completing the ritual ASAP.

Second, that the annual Hebrew Sabbath of the Red Heifer falls on March 29 of this year – just a few days from now as I write this (though there is no published plan that I know of, nor specific biblical mandate, to conduct the sacrifice on that day).

Third, that “bringing red cows” to the Holy Land was named by Hamas spokesman Abu Ubaida as one of the motives for the Oct. 7 massacre in a speech marking the 100th day of the war in Gaza.

I’ve always been a fan of the Indiana Jones movies, but the real life action/adventure unfolding before us regarding the red heifer and the potential for Third Temple is more exciting than anything Spielberg put on film.

Postscript: In response to several reader comments, I want to be clear that I do not insist that the Temple must be rebuilt for the prophecy of Matthew 24:15 to be fulfilled. A temple is not mentioned by name, just “the holy place.” I am on record for years that Ezra 3:6 shows unambiguously that an altar can serve as a holy place when the Temple has not yet been reconstructed. That said, I expect to see a Third Temple physically erected in Israel even though it’s not technically necessary.

Post-postscript: After I had completed this article, I received a link to another interesting article about Vendyl Jones here.

The Third Temple and the Day of the Lord

Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day…The …Day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and its works will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to conduct yourselves in holiness and godliness as you anticipate and hasten the coming of the day of God” (2 Peter 3:8-13).

Prophecy watchers are all aflutter over reports that the Orthodox Jews now in control of Israel (for the first time since its national reincarnation in 1948) are in the final stages of preparation to build the Third Temple, an essential element of end times eschatology. All eyes are on the four red heifers shipped to the Holy Land from Texas in 2022 after Rabbinical authorities deemed them fit for sacrifice to produce the ashes needed for the ritual cleansing of the High Priest, allowing him for the first time in two millennia to perform the duties prescribed in the Mosaic Law for building and consecrating the Third Temple.

According to CBN “These red heifers are now between 1 ½ and 2 years old. To replicate the ceremony mentioned in the Bible, they need to be at least 3 years old. And within that time span, they cannot have a blemish or anything that would disqualify them for the ceremony, even one white or black hair”…“So we believe that it’s very likely that the ceremony would happen somewhere in the area of Passover, 2024, out to the possibility of Shavuot, 2024.”

So we have an assessment by inside sources that the red heifer sacrifice will “very likely” occur between April 22 and June 13th of this year. And, rumor is, the Jews have (for redundancy) three pre-constructed Temple buildings in undisclosed locations ready to moved to the Temple Mount whenever the time is deemed right. I have added my own conjecture that one could be airlifted into place by construction helicopters practically overnight.

As a practical matter there is no “good” time for the Jews to build the Third Temple because the entire Muslim world will erupt in genocidal fury against them. But, hmmm, that’s already happening on a somewhat smaller scale since October 7th, isn’t it? And it’s the Muslims’ who drew “first blood” in this war. So the dynamics of a Jewish reclamation of all or a part of the Temple Mount under these geopolitical conditions are much more favorable to them than they would otherwise be.

And from the domestic political perspective in Israel, there is no guarantee that the current Authentically Jewish pro-Temple government will long survive efforts by the Torah-defying Fake-Jewish elites of the US to overthrow them and return their Leftist allies to power. (I frankly suspect these “elites” deliberately unleashed Hamas in October as a regime-change tactic.) So there’s a strong political motive for the Jewish Right to build the Temple ASAP: they might never get another chance.

Now we Christians are (as on every other theological matter) divided on the question of whether we should support the effort to build the Temple. On the “nay” side are arguments against Torah-based Judaism itself and the fact of the supersession of Christ’s sacrifice over that of “blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean” (Hebrews 9:13).

Hebrews 9 is a mini-treatise on this topic, ending with the observation:

“So it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but…Christ did not enter a man-made copy of the true sanctuary, but He entered heaven itself, now to appear on our behalf in the presence of God. Nor did He enter heaven to offer Himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own….But now He has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Just as man is appointed to die once, and after that to face judgment, so also Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await Him.”

[Regarding the last half-sentence, note especially that this entire Epistle is for the Hebrews, who will not collectively accept Him as Savior until the second coming per Romans 11, especially verses 25-26.]

But I stand with those on the other side of the issue in reliance on 2 Peter 3:13, that the righteous should “anticipate and hasten” the “Day of the Lord” – which is in Millennialist theology the seventh of seven thousand-year days, the Sabbath, mirroring the seven 24-hour days of creation.

This is a good place to address the Millennialism implicit in Peter’s teaching about the Day of the Lord, because the internecine division we face on the Third Temple seems to closely track with positions on the Millennial Kingdom – with those literalists like myself embracing the promise of a literal thousand year reign of Christ on a physically reclaimed and restored earth prior to our ascension with Him to Heaven. While “Amillennialists” and “Post-Millennialists” cling stubbornly to the Roman Catholic doctrine that spiritualizes the Millennial Kingdom as merely symbolic.

Peter – whose second letter represents his final word to the church – affirms the literal interpretation both by identifying the “Day of the Lord” as a thousand year term and by compressing and conflating all the many events of that “day” into one sentence emphasizing the last event before ascension – the incineration of all matter. But Peter’s first word to the church – his sermon on Pentecost – also affirms the thousand year “day.”

“Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, lifted up his voice, and addressed the crowd…‘listen carefully to my words….this [speaking in tongues] is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people….and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Acts 2:14-21).

Four thousand-year “days” had passed in biblical reckoning when Peter preached that, and three days – the “last days” invoked by Joel – remained. Peter was no doubt familiar with Hosea’s prophecy (again to the Hebrews) about God’s reunification with the two houses of the Hebrews in the Millennial Kingdom which reads:

“For I am like a lion to Ephraim and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear them to pieces and then go away. I will carry them off where no one can rescue them. Then I will return to My place until they admit their guilt and seek My face; in their affliction they will earnestly seek Me”…. “Come, let us return to the LORD. For He has torn us to pieces, but He will heal us…After two days [the Christian Era] He will revive us; on the third day [the cusp of the Millennial Kingdom] He will raise us up, that we may live in His presence” (Hosea 5:14-6:2). See also Ezekiel 37:15-28.

So I say, “Come quickly, Lord Jesus” and I will hasten that day by supporting the Jewish Third Temple effort – even though it means enduring the Antichrist Kingdom that will usurp it. UNTIL Christ ends Satan’s reign personally and dramatically per Revelation 19:11-21 and then – on His thousand-year Sabbath Day – establishes and rules the Peaceable Kingdom of Isaiah 11.

‘Joey the Scapegoat’ will soon exit stage left

Originally published 3/11/2024

I have great respect for former Trump speechwriter Darren Beattie of Revolver News whose work is truly and consistently stellar, but I must respectfully disagree with him on his March 7 article, “The Left Has to Replace Biden. Here’s Why They Can’t.”

He writes: “To attentive political observers, then, it may seem like the DNC is the obvious place to put in the fix. Didn’t they do that in 2016 for Hillary, protecting her while undermining Bernie Sanders at every opportunity? So, if the party feels doomed under Biden, why not do the same thing and start juggling the rules to allow a convention switcheroo? The bylaws of the DNC do explicitly mention that the DNC’s powers include filling a vacancy on the national ticket; such a vacancy is to be filled by ‘voting … in accord with procedural rules adopted by the Rules and Bylaws Committee and approved by the Democratic National Committee.’ That word is key: vacancy. As long as Biden is around and running, no such vacancy exists.”

Beattie’s logic and analysis is strong and sound on the points he made, but he ignored the one possible scenario I began speculating upon in evolving stages since before Biden was formally nominated for the position in 2020: a perfectly timed and staged Biden stroke (or equivalent malady) to create a vacancy allowing the DNC to appoint a replacement at their 2024 convention under its internal rules. This would allow a relative handful of DNC shot-callers to install whomever they wish to replace him. My money is on “Big Mike” Obama (not Gruesome Newsom) so Barack can get his fourth term just in time for the Great Reset.

This “vacancy by health crisis” scenario would have the added benefit of making “Joey the Scapegoat” politically immune from consequences for all his crimes and evils – and those of his co-conspirators. Everything gets retroactively blamed on “poor old Joe” who is (supposedly) off drooling in a nursing home, not prosecutable due to diminished capacity.

The Obiden Justice Department conveniently just set the table for this. Per Reuters, “Robert Hur, the special counsel appointed to investigate whether President Joe Biden improperly handled sensitive government documents, is a former high-ranking Justice Department official with experience in prosecuting sensitive leak investigations. On Thursday, he concluded that probe and found that Biden retained classified materials about Afghanistan after leaving the vice presidency in 2017 but said he will not be criminally charged.”

Of course, Reuter’s omitted the reason that he’ll skate, which was stated by the nominally more conservative Forbes in its article titled “‘Elderly Man With A Poor Memory’: Special Counsel Explains Why Biden Won’t Face Charges Over Classified Docs.”

Those wondering why Obiden’s own DOJ – normally so junkyard-dog ferocious in fighting his battles – would seeming disrespect the president so cavalierly now have their answer. Like so very much in today’s public square, it’s all about narrative-setting and selling. The Biden departure narrative is being built on the foundation that it’s Joe’s age and health to blame for the classified documents theft – and everything else.

From my own platform as a columnist at WND (the venerable journalistic warhorse that’s been continuously fighting for truth, justice and the American way since the Reagan Revolution), I started publicly called Biden “Joey the Scapegoat” just after the 2020 Democratic convention when it became clear to me that Trump had damaged golden girl Elizabeth Warren so badly that Biden would have to take her place as the candidate. It was essentially Obama stepping back in via the Biden Avatar as the only Democrat power-broker strong enough to go head-to-head (so to speak) with The Donald.

I’ll admit I had a dog in that fight. I believe I played an important part in derailing the President Pocahontas train by primarying Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker in 2018, whom I am convinced was intended to serve the Purple Uniparty cause during the 2020 primary as the red half of a Warren/Baker cross-party Never-Trump tag team and then as a key Cabinet member in a “bipartisan” Warren administration. Since late 2017, Politico was leading the Big Media campaign to set up uber-RINO Baker as “the most popular governor in America” in anticipation of 2020, but all hope of that died when “crackpot bigot” Scott Lively (so labeled for my authorship of “The Pink Swastika”) became the first conservative to win a spot on the Massachusetts gubernatorial ballot at a GOP convention in decades (winning nearly a third of the delegates) and took fully 36% of Baker’s expected-landslide vote in the 2018 primary – despite a near-total news blackout of my candidacy in all the conservative leaning portions of the state. Good riddance, Charlie and Liz!

And soon, good riddance, Joe! But there will be no cause for celebration in that event – for one thing because the alternative will be so much worse. But for another, the collective corporate media will be set to pounce on any “evil Republican or conservative” who dares to speak ill of the “helpless stroke – or perhaps brain tumor?– victim” as he exits stage left. I for one will be set to call foul on their fake outrage by reminding them of what they did to (now recovered) WND Founder Joseph Farah as he lay in a hospital bed after a severe stroke: The Washington Post took that opportunity to run its nastiest-ever hit piece on him in the hope they could finally kill WND, and perhaps the man as well. But both Farah and WND have made an impressive comeback, as, possibly, America might as well if we can finally be free of Barack Obiden in ALL his permutations and get Donald Trump back into the White House.

I’ll close by suggesting the possibility of a different and even more sinister variation on the Biden health crisis scenario: a Biden incapacitation by a new Fauci super-bug, justifying a new season of lockdowns and mail-out balloting! I don’t expect that, and believe WWIII/false flags blamed on Russia and martial law are more likely, but I don’t think anything – or combination of things – is off the table for the Trump Derangement Syndrome- afflicted elites and their minions.

My Cornered-Rat-o-meter is Spiking to Dangerous Levels

It’s been an amazing week of wins for President Trump, the MAGA Movement, the J6 POWs and all freedom-lovers in America. All the warheads in the left’s anti-Trump lawfare clusterbomb are present spinning wildly off into space and likely to explode without hitting their target. MAGA’s unapologetic dominance of the GOP is reaping huge success and sending RINOs like Mitch McConnell into forced retreat. The criminally corrupt DOJ is finally getting slapped down by the federal courts on its gross J6 prosecutorial overreach and selective enforcement against political protestors. And – despite unprecedented censorship and narrative enforcement by the entire deep state alliance of Big Government, Big Media, Big Tech, Big Pharma and Big Everything Else – the truth about the Covid plandemic, the stolen election, the Biden crime family and the callous US waste of Ukraine’s male population as a failed Kamakazi weapon against Russia – is rapidly red-pilling the American masses.

But, for the more jaded of us monitoring the situation through the lenses of Christian eschatology and proven conspiracy theories, the jubilation is heavily tempered by trepidation. The Cornered- Rat-o-Meter on my wall – which predicts the likelihood of extreme measures being taken by the ruling elites by the degree of their desperation – is not just spiking to dangerous, unprecedented levels but shooting out sparks and flashes. There is NOTHING they will not do to stay in power, and the window of time for them to take effective action is quickly narrowing.

Allow me to review what I believe are the leading factors in their calculations.

First is their need to retain control of the US Federal Government which, in practice, rules the world on behalf of the Central Banksters and hidden uber-elites of a cabal of top western and allied nations.

The cannot under any circumstances allow Donald Trump to regain control of the US unless they secretly buy him off regarding their most essential requirements – which is not beyond the reach of plausibility given his still un-repented-for role in Operation Warp Speed and severely anti-biblical endorsement of so-called “Gay marriage.” As much as I strongly support President Trump’s campaign and intend to vote for him, I do not worship the man as – alarmingly – many others seem to do. He is not the Messiah, just a extraordinary man with flaws.

Second, is the existential threat of Russia as a reemerging super-power openly organizing the BRICS “multi-polar” international order – which by definition would spell the death of US/UK global hegemony, which would presumably collapse under the weight of America’s $34 Trillion debt, and the $multiple Quadrillion debt of the current world system. And if that is the incentive of the “stick,” the corresponding “carrot” incentivizing the conquest of Russia is its vast storehouse of natural resources – at $75 Trillion the largest in the world by far. You see, the plan all along has been the plunder and balkanization of Russia, which fact is Russia’s motive for rearming and re-asserting its version of our Monroe Doctrine.

Third, a major factor potentially determining whether “multi-polar” competition will cause America to collapse by ending our reserve currency exclusivity (which is supposedly all that stands between us and bankruptcy) is the globalist contingency plan called the Great Reset. In the prophetic context the Great Reset looks like what the Bible implies will be a comprehensive new economic system to serve the Antichrist’s “beast” government – powerful enough in its control of individual wealth and trade that people who refuse to “take its mark” will be unable to buy and sell. The frantic, often irrational-seeming race to fully implement the Great Reset by 2030 is driven by the dual threat of the Russian multi-polar agenda and the rise of anti-globalist populism exemplified by Trump.

Fourth, to justify the Great Reset there logically must be a Great Collapse or the people of the world would never go along with it. There is no more powerful force in civilization than cultural inertia – which force can only be redirected by a society-wide paradigm-changing event such as a natural or man-made disaster (e.g. the bubonic plague or the Great Depression) a “miraculous” quantum-leap technological advance (e.g. the printing press or the Internet) or large-scale war. Interestingly, the Bible prophesies that all four types of events will mark the “beginning of sorrows” (labor pains), at the dawn of the short-lived Antichrist Kingdom.

Looking at all the variables currently at play today, my guess is that to achieve their Great Reset the elites will follow the four part sequence prophesied in the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24:5-7 (not necessarily in that order):

1) Wars and rumors of wars. World War III is already percolating but may soon escalate dramatically. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a major false flag terror event this election season in the US or against Americans on the territory of a strategic ally like Poland, Lithuania, Romania or Moldova followed by US boots on the ground in Ukraine. I will triple-down on my personal conspiracy theory that those boots will not primarily be worn by Americans but by the “military aged young men” that have been illegally flooding across our border by the millions over the past decade. I reiterate that I firmly believe the primary purpose they have been deliberately lured here is to fight America’s next big war. I further believe the coming mass “draft/conscription as a path to citizenship” policy will unite the left and right: a rare win/win, especially when everyone knows that post-Vietnam Americans would never again tolerate the large-scale loss of their own sons in a foreign war.

If the war-justifying event is on US soil, it would likely also be used to justify martial law and the suspension of elections and other civil liberties – just as we’ve seen (or not seen if you rely on corporate news media) in Ukraine. Voila! Their Trump problem solved and MAGA patriots characterized and quelled as potential/actual “traitors” under police state scrutiny – with J6-style prosecutors lined up six deep to ensure they’re properly punished for any dissent!

Then there’s 2) Disease. Covid 19 was the dress rehearsal for creating global infrastructure for something much worse likely being cooked up in Fauci’s labs even as we speak. 3) “Natural” disasters which may or may not be man-made but will cause massive famine and death. 4) The rise of false Christs, plural.

Revelation 6 contains John’s expanded version of the same teaching, representing the four categories as the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” But in 6:2 the White Horse is the False Christ, singular, the Antichrist, who shows signs and wonders to sell himself as real. I believe one of those acts will be the declaration of an artificial global debt jubilee (as part of the Great Reset) – aping Jesus whose first act of ministry in Luke 4:16-21 was declaring an authentic Jubilee holiday pursuant to biblical law.

I could go on but space constrains compel me to stop here. To summarize this article, by all means, fellow patriots, rejoice at this week’s good news – but “keep your powder dry.”

Karl Marx and the Serpent Reasoning of Almost Christians

First published 2 25 2024

“The way to Hell is paved with good intentions,” Karl Marx, Das Kapital: The Production of Surplus-Value, Vol. One, Chapter Seven, Section 2.

And [the serpent] said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’ ” The woman answered, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden, but about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You must not eat of it or touch it, or you will die.’ ” “You will not surely die,” the serpent told her. “For God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:1-5)

You can tell by his writings that Karl Marx loved playing God, but like his Marxist successors today he wasn’t very good at it, lacking any sense of irony and wasting all his native intelligence in efforts to redefine obvious natural truths and systems to fit his own flawed narratives. He possessed a vastly superior vocabulary to modern acolytes like Kamala Harris, but shared her pedantic and condescending style – always presuming to teach the world what he did not fully understand himself, and wreaking havoc because he had the de-facto political power to impose his will on other men’s lives.

Unlike Herbert Marcuse, his super-star ideological descendent who founded “Cultural Marxism,” (nick-named “Marcuse the Obtuse” by his hapless students) Marx wrote plainly enough that his errors are readily observable (which perhaps explains why Marcuse chose the path of obfuscation through gratuitously complex rhetoric.) For example, consider the leading quote above and its context. With no apparent sense of self-awareness Marx cited the “road to Hell” aphorism as he spoke in the third person as a hypothetical “Capitalist” confronted with a lack of profit from a yarn manufacturing venture. Here is the passage:

“An instrument of labour is a thing, or a complex of things, which the labourer interposes between himself and the subject of his labour, and which serves as the conductor of his activity. He makes use of the mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of some substances in order to make other substances subservient to his aims....Thus Nature becomes one of the organs of his activity, one that he annexes to his own bodily organs, adding stature to himself in spite of the Bible.  

“Our capitalist, who is at home in his vulgar economy, exclaims: ‘Oh! but I advanced my money for the express purpose of making more money.” The way to Hell is paved with good intentions, and he might just as easily have intended to make money, without producing at all....“I might have played ducks and drakes with the 15 shillings; but instead of that I consumed it productively, and made yarn with it.’ ... Let him therefore console himself with the reflection that virtue is its own reward. But no, he becomes importunate. He says: ‘The yarn is of no use to me: I produced it for sale.’ ... Our friend, up to this time so purse-proud, suddenly assumes the modest demeanour of his own workman, and exclaims: “Have I myself not worked? Have I not performed the labour of superintendence and of overlooking the spinner? And does not this labour, too, create value?” His overlooker and his manager try to hide their smiles.” [Emphasis added.]

In the space of a few paragraphs the smug and supercilious Marx unintentionally reveals the reason his own life’s work led civilization to a Hell on earth: he rejected the wisdom of God in favor of “serpent reasoning.” The serpent persuaded Adam and Eve to adopt the premise that God’s guidance could be wrong and that following their own counsel would make them “gods” like Him.

In the matter of economics, God’s counsel on economics is spelled out clearly in the Bible. For example private property is implicit in the Ten Commandments (“Thou shall not steal” has meaning only when things can be owned) and the socially just redistribution of wealth is prescribed in the Torah as a function of the seven year Sabbatical and fifty year Jubilee cycles. But, rejecting God’s wisdom, Marx and his humanist fellow-travelers intended to remedy some genuinely evil social conditions of his era (such as the virtual slavery of children in mines and factories, and obscene hoarding of wealth by new-money elites with no inclination to noblesse oblige) by engineering humanistic and eugenicist social changes of their own design, backed by resentment-fueled class warfare.

In the portion I highlighted above in bold, Marx ignorantly misinterprets Luke 12:24-26, which reads:

“Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? “And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest?”

Marx completely missed that trust in God’s providence – and the practical implementation of His Bible-based ethics, morality and governing systems – was the only right answer to the “social injustice” of his day.

It has been roughly two centuries since Marx started paving his generation’s road to Hell. Today, the “elite” strata of our 21st Century society is teeming with Karl Marxes, each brimming with good intentions animated by serpent reasoning. They’re cooperating together with factory-like efficiency to achieve their mutual fantasy of a “perfect” society, and their collective efforts have upgraded the Marxian path to a super-highway.

The common denominator of these men (which term properly incorporates women in authentic biblical reasoning) is defacto secular humanism – serpent reasoning – regardless of whatever religion they may nominally profess.

Authorities differ on the original source of the “road to Hell” quote but I believe it’s first use in the form and meaning assumed in this article was a sermon by John Wesley in 1741: “The Almost Christian” It’s worth a read, especially the opening paragraphs in which Welsey describes what would in the early 20th Century be called the “social gospel,” which American Humanists invented to undermine the church, and which more recently has served as the stepping stone to the widespread “social justice” movement in today’s “Almost Christian” church.

When you talk to self-styled “Progressives” or their self-deluding “Almost Christian” counterparts in their unguarded moments you find they almost universally perceive their intentions to be good, but in reality, to whatever extent they substitute their own serpent reasoning for God’s wisdom, they are, literally, paving their own personal road to Hell (John 3:18) and dragging the rest of society down with them.

Stranded in Middle Earth

Scott at the site of “Isengard” in Glenorchy, New Zealand

My regular readers know that I generally write about current events, theology and geopolitics in a testimonial style and live my life to maximize my experience-based insights. Much of what I experience is directed more by God than by myself and I have learned to simply follow His leading whenever there are turns in the road I didn’t plan. A frequent challenge is to trust Him regardless of the way things look and seem in these transitions. I write to you today from one of the most challenging side trails He has ever taken us on.

Anne and I usually take our annual vacation in January and or February and we increasingly favor cruises because shipboard life is most accommodating of Anne’s severe degenerative scoliosis. I wanted this year’s cruise to be extra special because I don’t know how long her declining mobility will last, so I booked a short segment of a world cruise that embarked in Los Angeles and disembarked in Sydney, Australia. Now, we had been to Sydney before without any need for a visa and thus were surprised to arrive on January 18th at the pier in LA to find a visa requirement had since been imposed on Americans. The cruise line insisted we could not board without one, and so we joined the approximately 200 other people scrambling to use the online visa application which in most cases granted one immediately. In the midst of that the site crashed, so the ship staff said we could board if we could show proof of a completed application and acceptance of payment. Thankfully, we had gotten that far in the process before the crash.

One day later Anne’s visa was granted. I was required to provide more information such as proof of financial ability to support myself in Australia (even though I would be there less than a day – to catch a flight home). That led to another request for more information including an extensive questionnaire that required me to create an immigration account and upload documents. I received another email verifying my completion of the process and another payment, including a promise I would get a response by email. That was on January 29th. One week later I still had no visa and began to get concerned, so I replied to one previous email that seemed to have come from a real person, titling it “Urgent ETA Inquiry.” I explained that (per Australian law) I and my handicapped wife would be ejected (in Dunedin, New Zealand) from the ship on February 10th for lack of a visa because was the last port before Sydney. That email (obviously not to a human being) triggered another demand for creating an immigration account and uploading more information – which, when I tried, rejected my effort because I already had an account.

Recognizing then that I was either trapped in a closed-loop computer-controlled AI hell with no human oversight or I was being targeted for my political views by ultra-woke DEI hires in the Aussi immigration bureaucracy, I started making contingency plans. I discovered that Dunedin, home of a huge international medical university catering largely to Chinese students was celebrating Chinese New Year and every reasonably priced hotel room in the city was booked. So instead I booked one of the last available rental cars at the airport for pickup on the morning of Feb 11th and arranged for the ship to let us disembark at 5:30AM, just ahead of its departure from port at 6AM. Originally the ship was to have left the afternoon of the 10th but a severe storm off the southern coast caused them to delay and so (we rejoiced) we could have one last night on the ship, pick up our car, and drive west to Queenstown near many filming locations for the Lord of the Rings movies.

However, on February 10th as I was leaving the ship to pick up my rental car to park it near the pier for our early morning Feb 11th disembarkation I was encouraged by a staff member on the ship to try again to get an “instant” visa because that had worked for many other people onboard in my situation. So, giving up my rental car reservation (by simply being a no show) I stayed onboard, did the retry and paid another fee. But instead of getting an instant visa, I got an email message saying I would receive a response within 72 hours. Still holding out hope, I checked my email every few minutes for the next three hours. Finally, I returned to the front desk to see if anything had come through on their end.

No such luck, but to my shock a cold and stern security office came up as I stood in a crowd in the lobby and demanded that I immediately gather my belongings and get off the ship, as if I were a criminal. “We have confirmed arrangements to disembark at 5:30AM tomorrow,” I said. “That will not be possible,” he replied, and added “The immigration official is right now waiting to process your disembarkation to New Zealand.” I replied “Your agent assured me we could disembark tomorrow morning and you have a legal obligation to honor that. You’re telling me me and my handicapped wife are being forced off the ship with no hotel rooms available in town?” He replied, “Whoever told you that made a mistake.”

Having no recourse we were in fact required to disembark into the bitter cold evening winds (the southern hemisphere equivalent of a polar vortex was peaking). Thankfully the port agent who had come onboard with the immigration official was able to reserve a hotel room for us in a nice hotel and to arrange taxi service to get there. I thought at first these were being provided by the cruise line as a courtesy, but learned that was not true when we left the taxi and were asked for payment.

The next day, there being not a single rental car available in Dunedin, we caught the bus to Queenstown where we were able to book a flight to Sydney that will allow us connect with our already scheduled flight back home. And because we’re arriving at the airport and not a cruise dock, there is no visa requirement. The one redeeming aspect of this change of circumstances is that we get to see one of the most magnificent and beautiful regions of the world – and have booked a bus tour of LOTR film sites for this afternoon.

How is any of this relevant to my readers? I believe what Anne and I have endured is a tiny glimpse into the future of AI controlled humanity. There is no good reason for Australian Immigration to have these problems – and I can tell you that every single New Zealander I’ve mentioned our plight to has related similar horror stories of their own or their friends. Further, two fellow travellers on this ship had it even worse (at least in the application process). One was required to get a full medical exam and a blood test. The other was forced to produce the death certificate of their grandparent (or parent) who’d been deceased for decades. Bizarre – as if some sadist with a creative imagination is randomly tormenting applicants – but I believe it’s all computer driven and not human controlled. That’s much worse, frankly, because at least a bad human can have a change of heart. Robots, however, and that’s really what were talking about here, are truly heartless – and truly mindless, because AI will never be anything but computer programming, no matter how sophisticated it gets.

Yesterday, I finally got a response to my third application. It instructed me to create an account on their immigration website.

Folks, if there is any chance at all of escaping this nightmare on a grand global scale it can only be by preserving human to human alternatives to the artificial world. I’ve drafted sample legislation that could do that and I offer it now as a free public domain resource. Take it to your legislators and get it passed while there’s still time.

The Natural Life Conservation Act

To be adopted as a State Constitutional Amendment where possible,

Transgenderism and the Occult

My spiritual path started with childhood Roman Catholicism and has led through many diverse realms of Christendom to what I describe today as a Bible-centered pre-Roman, small “c” catholic Christianity with a Hebrew-roots orientation modeled on the Apostles – most especially Paul. My eclectic religious education includes a Bachelor’s degree from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary (now called Corban College), a Juris Doctor of law from Trinity Law School (associated with the Reformed perspective) and a Doctor of Theology (Th.D.) from the seminary of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God (where I studied directly with its founder, Dr. Richard Anderson, as my doctoral adviser and published my dissertation in textbook form under the title “Redeeming the Rainbow: A Christian Response to the ‘Gay’ Agenda.”

My para-church ministry as a “missionary to the global pro-family movement” has been welcomed into hundreds of churches around the world, representing at least 40 denominations, and by such eminent leaders as Cardinal Janis Pujats of Riga, Latvia, who invited me to co-teach a class for Catholic seminarians, and Archpriest Dimitry Smirnoff of Moscow (Patriarch Krill’s head of family policy) who interviewed me on his national television program. I’ve shared church and conference platforms with many great Evangelical leaders and have spoken even in a number of “mainstream” denominational, Messianic Jewish and home-based churches. All this was by the grace of God, and I give Him all the glory.

However, from the age of 12 to 28, I left Christendom to explore the world of New Age Paganism, and along that path I got (lightly) involved with a variety of cults, including Scientolology, Rosicrucianism, the “Moonies” (in whose company I attended inaugural events for George H.W. Bush in D.C.) and the Brotherhood of the Spirit (a hippie commune led by a man famed for riding his Harley through town in a suit of armor). I read numerous occult books and made other casual forays into dark places.

The cult I spent the most time investigating (with increasing alarm), however, was the Theosophical Society, whose religion of “Theosophy” was held by one of my closest friends in Portland, Oregon, in or around 1980. There was (and is) an active Theosophical Society reading room in northwest Portland, and this man was an avid student of the writings of Alice Bailey, practitioner of “white magic” and acolyte of founder Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. Blavatsky was a Russian mystic whose chief German followers Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels and Guido von List (I would later learn) played a major role in shaping Adolf Hitler’s warped spirituality. Long before the Nazi Party emerged, these men published Blavatsky’s magazine “Lucifer” in Germany, featuring a swastika on the cover, and Lanz’s own magazine, “Ostara,” was Hitler’s personal favorite. I’ve written extensively about these matters in the second chapter of “The Pink Swastika” (4th Edition) titled “Homo-Occultism.” The Nazi Party and the modern LGBT movement not only sprang from the same occultic soil in Germany, they were intertwined!

We tend to think of “occultism” as ancient – and indeed many of its forms do have ancient roots – but the “science of occultism” is a creation of fairly modern times. Per Wikipedia, “The term occultism emerged in 19th-century France … associated with various French esoteric groups … and in 1875 was introduced into the English language by the esotericist Helena Blavatsky … but by the 21st century was commonly employed – including by academic scholars of esotericism – to refer to a range of esoteric currents that developed in the mid-19th century and their descendants. Occultism is thus often used to categorize such esoteric traditions as Qabalah, Spiritualism, Theosophy, Anthroposophy, Wicca, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, New Age, and the Left-hand path and right-hand path.”

These “esoteric traditions” happen to share a common occultic perspective on “androgyny,” more particularly the belief that binary sexuality is a mistake or flaw of Creation that will eventually be “cured” by the re-blending of males and females into a unisexual form. Importantly, this is an essential doctrine of Luciferianism and the reason why Baphomet is depicted as both male and female. If you have the stomach for it, take a few minutes to view “theblogofbaphomet” and see both how this reblending is envisioned by the occult world and how deeply integrated it is with “Queer” culture.

It is no accident that statues of Baphomet are being installed in cities around “Christian” America at the same time America’s children are being indoctrineated with the Luciferian religious hostility to “binary sexuality.” All of this is both occultic in nature and a fulfilment of the LGBT agenda, which I have long contended includes “transhumanism.”

I believe Satan’s agenda in simple human terms is to cause human beings to voluntarily replace every natural thing created by God with something artificial created by ourselves. This was the essence of the serpent’s promise/prophecy in the Garden of Eden – that the knowledge of good and evil would make us gods, so long as we substituted His wisdom for our own reasoning. God essentially confirms this interpretation in His decision to banish Man from Eden “lest he reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever” (Genesis 3:22).

Paul’s masterwork of systematic Christian theology, his Letter to the Romans, explains this further, showing in Chapter 1:18-32 that human degradation begins with “suppressing the truth in unrighteousness,” leading to “worship of created things,” which results in a “reprobate mind,” evidenced by extreme sexual deviance, specifically exemplified by the toeva (or “abomination” per Leviticus 18:22) of homosexuality, producing a culture of apostasy, moral chaos and death.

Importantly, Paul closes the chapter by restating that this is all volitional on the part of humans: “Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things are worthy of death, they not only continue to do these things, but also approve of those who practice them.” I believe that final phrase highlighting “approval” relates to consensus-based public policy by human decision-makers. That is, in fact, the culture of the Antichrist Kingdom, defined by human lawlessness and “strong delusion” (2 Thessalonians 2.)

“Are we there yet?” clamor today’s “progressive” generation from the back seat of the globalist armored car, plowing almost effortlessly over the remaining mobs of freedom-loving rebels. These deluded reprobates believe that their non-binary, white-ness purged, perfectly egalitarian social justice utopia is about to be achieved. But we who still love and trust God know they are victims of their own humanist hubris, and the “freedom” they think they want is satanic slavery.

Is there any hope for them? Only if we have the courage to keep telling the truth despite the cost.

The conquest of demons and ‘pharmakeia’

First published on WND, 1 /29.2024 — To purchase this book, click the cover graphic.

My primary foray into the scholarship of demonology is a three-book series under the title “Dynasty of Darkness.” The first volume, “Antichrists of the Ancient World,” is complete and published at my bookstore. The second, “Antichrists of the Modern Age,” is a close-to-complete book-in-progress. The third, untitled, is in the research phase. The series proceeds from a few basic premises, including:

1. that God’s designation of the Pergamum Altar in Revelation 2:13 as “the seat of Satan … where Satan dwells” was meant literally;

2. that all the demons, including Satan, can only enter the physical realm through such “portals,” of which there have been many, including the Temple of Marduk in Babylon (which name means “Gate of the gods”);

3. that unlike God’s righteous angels, who can take human form themselves (Hebrews 13:2), Satan and his fallen angels can only fully operate in the world by physical possession of humans (or lesser created beings per Luke 8:32-33);

4. that Satan wants always to be in possession of someone in order to advance his agenda in the world; and

5. whomever Satan is in possession of at any given time is – essentially – the “Antichrist” of that moment (totally distinct from the “antichrists” mentioned in 1 John 2:18, which are merely Jesus-denying human apostates in a church context).

I believe I comfortably vindicated these hypotheses in my first volume, which traces the succession of (likely) Antichrists in the Bible from Cain through the Old Testament and Apostolic ages and then examines the secular history of the first four centuries of the Christian Era until that satanic portal was destroyed in an earthquake. The second book resumes the documentation of satanic influence associated with that portal from the point at which it was excavated in Turkey by Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany and reconstructed in Berlin in the late 1800s, where it stands to this day. This documentation includes mention of Hitler’s personal recreation of the altar at his Nuremberg Rally Complex, and that of Barack Obama, upon which he gave his acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination for president in 2008. (And, yes, I am stating that I think Obama was and is the best candidate for the final Antichrist, whose identity will not be officially established until the “restrainer” is taken away per 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.)

This article, however, goes beyond these themes into the area of my current research, which includes a new hypothesis – that inanimate matter can also serve as a form of “portal” that allows demons to influence and torment, if not fully possess, humans. The best example of this is “pharmaceutical” drugs. Biblically, the Greek word “pharmakeia” is directly associated with and even translated as “sorcery,” which makes this hypothesis – and even some aspects of the phenomenon of Animism (spirit inhabitation of inanimate objects) – more plausible. (A partial list of verses addressing pharmakeia/sorcery includes 2 Kings 9:22, Isaiah 47:9, 12, Micah 5:12, Galatians 5:20 and Revelation 18:23.)

My first inkling of this as an actual possibility arose from the stark similarities of two drug-induced suicides of young people in the Springfield, Massachusetts, area during our sojourn there as founders of the Redemption Gate Mission. Someone had illegally home-brewed a batch of “Xanax” that somehow drove these two kids to hang themselves. The thing was, however, that they did not know each other, and the deaths were totally unrelated in human terms. Reportedly, both were young women, both engaged in common household tasks who each suddenly stopped what they were doing, went to an upstairs room and immediately hung themselves. Whatever caused them to kill themselves and in the same exact manner was a mystery – but one that led my wife and me to speculate that the drug itself was the cause, and if so, that a specific demon or category of demons used that drug to gain access to these victims. That caused us to start looking more closely at the correlation of specific drugs with specific behaviors – which was easy to do because the “hood” we lived in was filled with addicts of various types.

One of the first things we noticed was that whenever one of our regulars at the mission switched their drug of choice, their behavior radically changed. They exhibited a different form of craziness common to other users of that drug. We also noticed the high correlation of drug use with mental illness, especially schizophrenia – one common symptom of which was hearing voices that told them to do things.

More significant is the growing body of hard data linking Big-Pharma-brewed psychiatric drugs with mass murder and suicide. Not surprisingly the “fact checking” offered by the cover-up kings leading our public health agencies try to dismiss and/or spin the facts to protect their Big-Pharma sugar daddies, but (just as with the COVID cover-up) the stats gathered by independent qualified truth-seekers don’t lie

Now, none of these sources mentions a correlation with demons. That would be a bridge too far for their credibility with the secular public. But genuinely Bible-believing Christians know that the spiritual realm, and its wars, are real (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

I personally survived spiritual warfare that involved drug use – in my case marijuana, of which I smoked mountains in my teens and 20s. I was also, concurrently, an alcoholic for 16 years (from the age of 12) and took other, harder drugs as often as opportunity allowed. I didn’t recognize my situation as demonic oppression in those years, but I was fearfully aware of the deterioration of my mental health the longer my psychological addiction to “weed” continued. I did come to realize I was in a form of bondage that was beyond my ability to escape despite many serious, sometimes desperate attempts. Something sinister was working to keep me enslaved which I was powerless to defeat on my own.

Without mentioning demons, Alcoholics Anonymous’ first three steps to recovery state: “We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable, Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity [and] Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.”

In the end, when I had nowhere left to turn and the survival of my young family hung in the balance because of my failures, I finally risked the final option that random Christians had for years urged me to take – and I asked Jesus Christ to come into my heart and change me. That triggered a chain of events with God’s fingerprints all over them, that culminated two weeks later in my total surrender to Christ. Alone in my room at a secular drug and alcohol rehab center, I got down on my knees and relinquished all control over my life to Him. In rushed the Holy Spirit like a mighty wind, and I was instantly healed and delivered of even the desire for those substances. On Feb. 1, I will celebrate 38 years of deliverance.

My demons were conquered effortlessly by Christ, who promises the same to all who call upon Him in sincerity of heart. And the Bible says He, in His own perfect timing, will conquer the demons currently running rampant throughout this world. We who are spiritually aware enough to know we ARE spirits temporarily occupying these bodies of flesh should always be mindful of these realities – and learn what we can about the spiritual world for our own self-protection and to be of service to Christ in helping others avoid – or escape – torment and enslavement.

Updating My Pet Conspiracy Theories

First published on WND, 1/22/2023

It may only be that I’m proving the old saying that fools rush in where angels fear to tread, but I am one of the rare few who don’t shun the label “conspiracy theorist.” Conspiring with others to serve mutual self-interest comes about as easily to human beings as breathing – as any criminal court docket in America will show – and experience has shown that the more rich and powerful a person is, the more likely he or she is to try to secretly control the outcome of things in business, politics, religion … heck, any area of human endeavor. If conspiracy is happening all around us all the time, even in the lower strata of society where people have fewer ways and means to get what they want, it stands to reason it’s a major league sport among the elites.

What’s actually bizarre and unnatural is the social stigma against theorizing about conspiracies. Where did THAT come from? The only people who benefit from that are those very same elite conspirators whose worst nightmare is public scrutiny that pokes holes in “official narratives.”

And so, in the interest of public service – and in self-defense to the potential charge I’m just an angel-jumping fool – I’d like to update you on a couple of my own pet conspiracy theories that have recently been bolstered by news reports, and add a new one to my list.

1. A leading purpose of the massive invasion of military age men across our southern border is to feed a planned military draft to fight America’s (impending) next big war. I first went public with this conspiracy theory in early May of An Alternate Theory on Open Borders.” I followed in it July 2023 with my article “Milestones on the March to WWIII” when the first solid evidence for it emerged in the news.

Two months later, ZeroHedge did a piece citing more evidence.

And then starting in October of 2023, the corporate media (an arm of the Deep State) started actively dismissing the draft as a possibility in carefully scripted terms, which, to me, bolsters its likelihood.

Today as I write this, a Twitter comment is running as a news item on Citizen Free Press emphasizing that perhaps the most critical component of the volunteer military – multigenerational military families – are now telling their sons not to join.

And lastly, Tucker Carlson is on record (since September) predicting the October Surprise of the 2024 election will be war with Russia, and a possible suspension of elections under martial law. I think he’s right, and it’s the illegals who will be conscripted en masse – as an alternative to deportation, and a means of earning citizenship.

2. Vulture capitalist tactics in service to China are in play on the west coast. This conspiracy is a little more on the wild side, and I can’t pin down exactly when I first went public with it other than to say it was in off-the-cuff comments in one or more of my 2020 Prophecy and Politics live-stream shows about BLM/Antifa rioting.

Nothing better describes Democrat rule in the deepest blue cities than the phrase “government by organized crime.” It struck me that what was (and still is) happening in San Francisco, Portland and Seattle looked a lot like the (allegedly) deliberate property devaluation tactics I had seen in Boston (in my home state of Massachusetts) where corrupt Democrat officials seemed to intentionally cluster social services such as methadone clinics and homeless shelters in select neighborhoods that were lusted after by vulture capitalist co-conspirators. After businesses and the middle-class residents fled, property values bottomed out and the vultures swept in, assisted by pot-sweetening “enterprise zone” tax incentives. All the crooks on both sides of the private/public partnership got richer.

In November, my theory got a bit of a boost when “China’s Xi Jinping Arrive[d] in San Francisco to Fanfare, Protests” where Obiden himself flew in to meet him. Somehow the entire area was cleansed of its infamous patina of human feces for Comrade Xi (affectionately known by all the crooks of the Purple Uniparty as “Old Deep-Pockets”), along with the thousands of public defecators the city had long claimed to be impossible to relocate, along with their tents, shopping carts and mountains of trash. Doing the impossible was apparently necessary in this case, for Xi to see what he would be buying when the values fully cratered.

3. Hidden technologies are behind the switch from fossil fuels to electric batteries. The more I study the history of geo-politics, the more I realize that very few things the common people believe to be sudden or spontaneous technological or social developments actually are what they seem. Sometimes even true or partially true conspiracy theories that arise about these changes are part of the cover story.

Case in point is the theory that the globalist “climate change” doctrine is a purely fabricated political pretext for establishing and justifying a centralized one-world government. I think that IS true as regards to global government, but I think it’s partially a smokescreen when it comes to the transition to electric batteries, whose justification is falsely and deceptively linked to climate change doctrine, to hide the true plan and agenda.

What I mean by that is the top-strata elites who really run the show have no intention of powering this change with costly and dangerous lithium batteries over the long term, but already have technology in the works that will only be introduced once the electric battery infrastructure is fully in place and the shocks to the “fossil fuel” economy have been mitigated by years of collective psychological preparation and jobs re-training. Their true agenda is profit, and lots of it.

The only real evidence I have for this (besides my gut instinct) is a story I first saw today about the Chinese development of purportedly very safe and virtually perpetual nuclear batteries the size of a coin, strong enough to power a cell phone for 50 years, that can be strung together in series to increase their potency. To me this seems perhaps the biggest technology news of my lifetime, being presented almost as a news sidebar – a curiosity rather than a global game changer (and a potential cash cow for China) that could allow Xi’s outlay for the “purchase” of our west coast cities to seem mere “chump change.”

I had privately hypothesized that the advanced technology being hidden by the elites related to nuclear fusion, but now I think they’ve decided to reveal their actual hand and this is it. Time will tell. Until then, it’s just another conspiracy theory you can entertain or dismiss as you please.

Mapping the Swamp

In my recent article “The Swamp Rangers vs. Barack’s Borg,” I announced my revival of The Swamp Rangers network I had begun to form back in late 2020 in anticipation of a contiguous second term for Trump in which the biggest task of the MAGA movement would be draining the swamp.

It’s time to resurrect that project and start mapping the swamp in earnest. Thankfully, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel to accomplish this but only to start linking together the great work that has already been done by others and look for ways to add to the collective conservative awareness of how Barack’s Borg is organized and functions. The goal is to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works [and workers] of darkness, but rather expose them” (Ephesians 5:10).

We’re starting with two of the most destructive swamp creatures in D.C. – the power-couple of anti-Trump Lawfare Queen Mary B. McCord and her shady and secretive husband, Sheldon Snook, whose possible role in some major dirty deals has just been exposed by Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse, inspired by a piece at The Gateway Pundit. Gotta love all this great teamwork on display.

First lets look at a short profile on McCord at Conservapedia, which has done a lot of swamp mapping for us: The site calls her “he singular epicenter of every D.C. construct to remove Trump, including: the 2016 DOJ-NSD FISA submission, the 2017 White House coordination (Rice, Ruemmler, Monaco), the 2017 targeting of Flynn (w/ Yates), the 2018 Schiff/Nadler impeachment, the 2018 FISA Court review as an outcome of IG Michael Horowitz, the installation of ICIG Michael Atkinson, the changing of CIA rules for whistleblowing (impeachment predicate), and currently the 2023 Jack Smith investigation. Mary McCord is the binding guide. [Mary McCord’s husband was in charge of the counsel to Chief Justice John Roberts.]”

Much more entertainingly, James Howard Kunstler names McCord and fellow swamp creature Lisa Monoco as “the poison spiders in the DOJ web of veteran seditionists” in his recent piece “Poison Spiders at the Center of the Web”. [We’ll need to add spiders as a category on our Swamp Rangers website.] Kunstler also summarized the steamy swamp romance of sweethearts Fani and Nathan, but Howie Carr offered an even more entertaining commentary on that.

Next let’s point out that McCord and especially Snook have largely escaped public scrutiny up to this point. A politically neutral profile I found of the couple emphasizes their efforts to shield their private life from public eyes.

But now lets let the Conservative Treehouse article expose what it is, perhaps, that they’ve been most desperate to hide: their likely role in the Dobbs leak scandal at SCOTUS!

“Sheldon was working for the counsel to John Roberts. The counsel to the chief justice has one job, to review the legal implications of issues before the court and advise Justice John Roberts. The counsel to the chief justice knows everything happening in the court and is the sounding board for any legal issues impacting the Supreme Court.

“In his position as the right hand of the counsel to the chief justice, Sheldon Snook would know everything happening inside the court.

“At the time, there was nothing bigger inside the court than the Alito opinion known as the Dobbs Decision – the returning of abortion law to the states. Without any doubt, the counsel to Chief Justice Roberts would have that decision at the forefront of his advice and counsel. By extension, this puts the actual written Alito opinion in the orbit of Sheldon Snook.

“After the Supreme Court launched a heavily publicized internal investigation into the leaking of the Dobbs decision (Alito opinion), something interesting happened. Sheldon Snook left his position. If you look at the timing of the leak, the investigation and the Sheldon Snook exit, the circumstantial evidence looms large.

“Of course, given the extremely high stakes, the institutional crisis with the public discovering the office of the legal counsel to the chief justice likely leaked the decision, such an outcome would be catastrophic for the institutional credibility. In essence, it would be Roberts’ office who leaked the opinion to the media.

“If you were Chief Justice John Roberts and desperately needed to protect the integrity of the court, making sure such a thermonuclear discovery was never identified would be paramount. Under the auspices of motive, Sheldon Snook would exit quietly. Which is exactly what happened.”

I take this as vindication for my own conclusion immediately upon hearing about the leak, that Roberts was the leaker. It would be nice to see a bit of lawfare from our side to prove it definitively – because proof of that could potentially be grounds for a Roberts impeachment. Few efforts would help drain the swamp faster that THAT. Frankly, I think Roberts would resign if events let us down that path.

I’d like to add a few words about Lisa Monoco, whom Kunstler named as the other spider at the center of the DOJ web. Like McCord, Monoco majors on pushing the “dangerous rise of white supremacy” narrative in here role as deputy attorney general. Much as I am loathe to subject people to MSNBC, here’s a recent example of her fearmongering to Americans still enslaved to the “mainstream” media.

Lastly, let me remind my readers that all these facts I’ve raised today suggest the hidden hands of another deep state group of far left lawyers who like to operate from the shadows while coordinating tightly with the Obiden regime: the SPLC. I’ll close with this link to my WND column of June 6, 2021, “The group behind the attack on the MAGA Movement.”

The plan to put Barack Obama back in the White House

First published on WND, 1/12/2024

Talk is heating up again about “Big Mike” Obama being the Democrats’ choice to replace Joey the Scapegoat when they finally pull the plug on his sham presidency. Arguments against that possibility always seem to focus on Michelle’s glaring lack of qualifications, but they miss the point that that IS the point – everyone will know that it’s all a charade to put Barack back in the White House (in person this time and not via his drooling avatar, Joe.) It also won’t hurt “her” chances among the Groomer generation of Dem voters that the Joan Rivers “curse” still casts transgender shade on the former first lady. BUT her true role in 2024 would be as Barack’s shoehorn past the Constitution – and the more obvious that strategy is, the better the Dem turnout will be (the actual turnout, not the true blue cemetery vote that’s always 100%).

If they were to be honest in their political ads (ha!), they’d come right out and say it: “A vote for Michelle is a vote for Barack, the only Democrat with a realistic chance of beating Donald Trump.”

I’ve always recognized that Joe Biden was Obama’s puppet, moved into front-runner status as the best of bad options after Trump creamed the entire field of Dem primary candidates in February of 2020, including the designated winner, Pocahontas Warren. I predicted Biden would get the nomination just a few hours after the Democratic Primary debacle that blatantly cheated Bernie Sanders out of the nomination – for the second time! – the first time in 2016 triggering Bernie-Bot Seth Rich to give the establishment Dem secrets to Wikileaks, which led to his assassination, presumably by the Clintons.

The Purple Uniparty knew it was in for big, unavoidable trouble by resorting to a coup to prevent Trump from fulfilling the second term he would and did clearly win by right in 2020. They needed not just to put a fully loyal placeholder in the White House, they needed someone to take the fall for all the foreseeable and unforeseeable disasters that would follow. Joe Biden neatly fit the bill – being as criminally liable for scandal and jail time as any of his fellow Ukraine profiteers would be under a wised-up Trump Justice Department – and being then in the early stages of some form of obvious cognitive decline. When that brain condition fully ripened (for real or by staged exaggeration) he would become the perfect patsy for all the evils his regime would have foisted on the American people (at Barack’s direction). Further, his “diminished capacity” would provide a fail-safe defense to prosecution. He’d skate away smoother than Ray Epps for crimes infinitely worse, carrying all the blame for all the crimes right off with him into the nursing home.

I first started publicly detailing my conspiracy theory, and Barack Obama’s role in it, back in August of 2021 in my article “Afghanistan and the Obama Birthday-Bash Head Fake.” In that first iteration, I showed how the Kabul hostage crisis mirrored Clinton’s staged but botched Benghazi crisis and how that event could open a path for Obama’s return to the White House. It didn’t, but the analysis of its potentiality was and is still sound.

In my WND column of Oct. 25, 2021, I went further and predicted a scenario through which Biden could be removed with the least damage to the Democratic Party, writing, “I’ve long predicted that Joe will be the scapegoat for whatever goes wrong. Obama himself pretty much telegraphed Biden’s usefulness as a scapegoat. As quoted in Politico during the primary, ‘One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f–k things up.”‘” Quite a useful trait and personal history for a patsy candidate, eh?

That scenario involved a creative reading of the 22nd Amendment, about which I wrote: “Obama [would] be called out of retirement and retake the world stage … returning [him] to the White House by whatever sequence of resignation, appointments and resignations would best work to retire Biden, minimize a Harris presidency, and place Obama back on the throne. All accompanied by a unified chorus of legal experts and media pundits spinning a new interpretation of the 22nd Amendment regarding presidential term limits (e.g. it only limits ‘two elections’ after all – not an appointment to VP by Harris, followed by her resignation and reappointment to VP by Obama). That battle would most certainly go to the Supreme Court, where, conveniently, Obama’s main man John Roberts (the guy who killed all the pro-Trump election fraud lawsuits) is still chief justice.”

On May 6, 2022, I published my article “The how and when of a Biden resignation” in which I predicted the controlling powers would stage a Biden “stroke” as the most effective method for removing him quickly and smoothly without any public expectation of any public statements by Biden himself. He would become an immediate object of national sympathy, whose tragedy could be fully milked for its political value, including painting the MAGA movement as heartless brutes for the inevitable expressions of (at minimum) relief from many quarters. I still expect that will be their go-to exit strategy when the time comes.

Now that we’ve turned the corner into 2024, I’m carrying all the factors in my past analyses forward and acknowledging that the most likely scenario for getting Barack Obama physically back into the White House is a Michelle Obama candidacy. The other scenarios are not dead, just slightly diminished in probability.

However, it just might be that the Michelle run is being floated as a fall-back plan to the end-run-past-the-22nd-Amendment scenario. If they stroked out Biden long enough before the Primary, they would have time to politically recover if the Supreme Court blocked Obama from replacing Biden directly. And, frankly, that lawfare effort could actually bolster the fall-back plan by making the Michelle campaign a more obvious work-around to put Barack back in de facto power.

One way or another, the elites are going to do whatever it takes to prevent Trump from getting back into the White House. But just as important to them, is that Barack Obama remains the head of the deep-state snake. Time will soon tell what God will allow as a result of this cultural war, but one thing is certain: The process is going to be intense for this nation, perhaps more than at any time since the Revolution that birthed us.

The Swamp Rangers vs. Barack’s Borg

In my recent column “God vs. the devil in American constitutional law,” I promised to follow up with strategy to fight the normalization of Satanism in the courts – but the courts are only a small part of the problem, so I’ve decided to take on the larger task of defeating Satan’s main man, Barack Obama, and his culture-war Death Star I call Barack’s Borg. I’ve intentionally mixed these science fiction metaphors because the real life threat we face combines the most formidable features of both into one virtually unstoppable menace to humanity.

First a quick sitrep on the state of our rebel alliance. The winner-take-all battle to reclaim America from the Marxists over the coming year is certain to be the most fiery and intense since the Revolutionary War. Donald Trump’s MAGA armies have already swelled considerably beyond their prior peak in the election season of 2020 and early 2021, and he is clearly an unbeatable force in the Republican Party. The lingering after-effects of the globalists’ Plandemic continue to embitter and galvanize the larger conservative movement and fill it with a steely resolve to depose the malign usurper Biden and his rotten-to-the-bone coterie.

The “Independents” have been red-pilled on the realities of election fraud, government censorship and groupthink narrative enforcement, the J6 “Fedsurrection,” the evil and interrelated conspiracies of Big Pharma, Big Tech and Big Media and other metastasized cultural cancers. American Jews have been rudely awakened by the global Hamas uprising to the anti-Semitic Frankenstein they created for themselves among America’s hard left and youth and are now steering politically rightward in shocked survival-mode. Thanks to the brilliant tactic of Florida and Texas shipping illegals to the deep blue “sanctuary cities” (one of soon-to-be ex-presidential candidate Ron DeSantis’ several redeeming acts), American blacks are rising up as an unexpected but powerful voice against “open borders” – heavily to the benefit of President Trump whose name is virtually synonymous with “border security.”

Even among the Democrats, there is a growing buyer’s remorse about the social cost of hard-left policies and weariness in fighting for a regime whose “woke” definition of “Our Democracy” looks nothing like what their own grandfathers and great-grands fought and died to preserve. Sure, there is a large infestation of hardcore Marxists among the D’s who also hold most of the leadership posts – but much of the rank-and-file is less committed to that agenda, and several of the party’s constituent parts are increasingly susceptible to poaching by the GOP. The two factions that will remain most true-blue are the abortion-obsessed feminists and the LGBT supremacists – whose common agenda is unchangeably anchored to the perpetuation and progression of sexual anarchy (which is itself the antithesis of their self-defined first-principle of “sustainability.”)

Cognitive dissonance is killing the Dems, but what holds their contemptible coalition of co-conspirators together in spite of its personal consequences is the deep-state machinery the Clintons and Obama created during their presidential administrations (Obama having the incontestable dominant role in that political menage-a-trios).

Barack’s Borg is a sociopolitical cybernetic conglomerate integrating a vast number of government agencies, including especially key divisions in the Departments of Defense and State and their intelligence arms, with NGOs, corporate media, a plethora of private corporations, foundations and associations such as the Chamber of Commerce and various sports leagues, “Pope” Francis’ Vatican, most “mainline” Christian denominations, and a dizzying number of other centers of power and influence, large and small, across the entire spectrum of human interrelations.

Barack’s Borg cannot be stopped by any internal factors because is a self-perpetuating machine with countless fail-safe redundancies, every component of which is in actual spiritual slavery to himself, the Overmind, who in turn answers only to the actual “Big Guy” (the one with a red cape and horns – not the drooling puppet Biden). After decades of assembling his creation (at Harvard, the U.S. Senate, the Oval Office and now the Kennedy stronghold of Martha’s Vineyard), all the while posing as an Angel of Light, his Borg is the manifestation of the satanic kingdom on the earth – a “beast” government (in shadow form for now) intent on absorption and enslavement of everything outside itself.

In the “Star Wars” universe, the first Death Star was defeated by stealing the construction blueprint that exposed its weaknesses. In the “Star Trek” universe, the Borg was defeated by jamming its internal communications signals and then bringing all weapons to bear on the unshielded whole (which was the same way the second Death Star was destroyed – as well as the alien mother ship in “Independence Day”).

Hollywood has given us the strategy to defeat Barack’s Borg. We need to ferret out and expose the operational schematic as a join project of all right-thinking humanity – identifying all the component parts of the machine, their relationships to each other and the assets under their control. And then we attack the weakest links – and the machine as a whole – with every weapon we can collectively bring to bear.

I will admit that this is not a new idea for me. This mission – in a more protean form – was the reason I created Swamp Rangers back in the Fall of 2020. I believed Trump would win (which he did) and then carry on a purge of the Marxists from the government (which he could not do because of the Marxist coup that ousted him from the White House and installed Obiden instead.) I intended Swamp Rangers to assist in the purge, but after the coup there was no opportunity to pursue the mission, so I let it go dormant.

The revived Swamp Rangers will be a network of independent agents devoted to the task of “mapping the swamp” by identifying the co-conspirators of Barack’s Borg at every level, documenting their roles and relationships, and submitting their findings to the Swamp Rangers HQ for vetting and inclusion in an open-source website that exposes it all. For example, in my last article, “Time to take the gloves off in 2024,” I reiterated my theory that Chief Justice John Roberts was the Dobbs leaker. In response, a reader emailed me a note to investigate Mary B. McCord, whose husband works for him. Exposing connections like this is, of course, a staple of conservative media, but what’s lacking is an open-source, user-friendly clearing-house of this information, organized like a combination flowchart and encyclopedia. Building that will be the Swamp Ranger mission for 2024.

If you’d like to be a part of this or for more information, visit the Swamp Ranger website (which has not yet been updated since 2021), or just contact me by email at to become a Swamp Ranger member or non-affiliated Ally. I suggest you frame your email like a job interview and stress any suitable skills you may have to contribute to this all-volunteer enterprise. Swamp Rangers is under the umbrella of my church, but is not overtly religious in nature. Fighting evil is the first duty of all humanity, and creedal differences shouldn’t get in the way of practical realities in defending God’s universal truths and the virtue-oriented civilization He blessed us with.

Time to take the gloves off in 2024

First published at WND, 1/1/2024

When the romantic idealism of the golden rule meets the cold reality of lawless barbarism on the cultural battlefield – who wins?

This weekend I had an email exchange with a long-time supporter who started it by saying the conservatives should fight fire with fire in the left’s campaign of “lawfare” against Trump by going after Biden in the same way. My initial response was to err on the side of idealism, arguing that the U.S. Supreme Court is virtually certain to declare efforts to keep Trump off the ballot unconstitutional, and on matters of high principle we shouldn’t descend to the tactics of our enemies – playing “tit for tat” was the phrase I used.

After further consideration, however, I decided he was right because America’s days of counting on high idealism to prevail over corrupt special interests are largely gone now, and an increasing plurality of decision makers at every level are not guided by principle but by practical political realities (or their own rank partisanship).

In no place is that fact more disconcertingly true than the Supreme Court where Chief Justice John Roberts thwarted all efforts to expose and punish the blatant and massive Dem and RINO election fraud of 2020. The most charitable interpretation of his actions was that he played politics to de-escalate an existential social crisis – but more realistically he played goalie for the globalists to stop Trump and his conservative Christian and populist base from scoring a decisive win.

(I still believe Roberts was the one who leaked the Dobbs draft to sabotage the effort to repeal Roe v. Wade – funny how the Dobbs culprit is still “unknown.” And look what he, the justice with direct juridical oversight of the District of Columbia, continues to allow regarding the grotesque treatment of the J6 political prisoners! If Roberts had the juice to deny justice for Trump again, I think he’d use it – though I suspect he doesn’t.)

American high idealism, which had always been grounded in a strong national consensus about biblical values, peaked in the 1950s but has been steadily declining ever since. Watch virtually any movie from the ’40s and ’50s and you’ll see those ideals on display as the basic assumptions of society – assumptions such as “truth will always win out,” and “you can count on most people to simply ‘do the right thing’ if you give them the chance.” The “right thing to do” was always the Christian thing to do. Not any more. Instead we have a divided society in which the remnant of Christians and traditional conservatives fight as if our ideals still hold sway over decision makers while the left operates by the Marxist precepts that “might makes right” and “the end justifies the means.” All our cultural battles reflect this contrast, and our side is losing because the decision makers have chosen “pragmatic” over “principled” reasoning to resolve disputes.

I’m not a politician, but I ran twice for governor of Massachusetts as a missionary to the political arena of my home state – the second time (in 2018) thwarting what I believe was a Purple Uniparty strategy to use a landslide re-election of RINO Charlie Baker as a springboard to sabotage Trump from inside the 2020 GOP presidential primary field in parallel to the plan to put Pocahontas Warren in the White House. My article “The Impending Bum-Rush of ‘Joey the Scapegoat'” details those facts.

Those forays into politics taught me two liberating truths I’ve propounded ever since in my advice to issue advocates and candidates.

First let me remind everyone that the political arena is by definition and unchangeable necessity a place of compromise. A politician can take some uncompromising stands and get away with it – if they are flexible on other issues – but by and large its about trading votes like baseball cards to the extent your constituency will tolerate it. In that arena special interests are a huge factor, and the bigger their war chest and higher their passion, the more their agenda must be factored in.

Here’s the first liberating truth regarding issue politics: Politicians will always try to placate special interests, even if they don’t agree with them, by giving them something, even if its not all they demand. If our side has no true counter-demand on the table, that’s almost always a win for the special interest. Most importantly, the demand cannot just be to preserve the status quo because the politician’s impulse to compromise is almost impossible to resist. And so, the most frequent outcome in such contests is a “baby step” toward the special interest that preserves the politician’s ability to still claim victory for his constituency. But the net effect is always a shift to the left.

The only way to prevent that leftward slide as a virtual given in politics is to always meet a demand for leftward movement with a true counter-demand for rightward movement, so that the politician’s most expedient “compromise” is to preserve the status quo, while our chance for getting a baby step or more in the right direction becomes an actual possibility on every vote.

The second liberating truth regards candidate politics: Establishment political machines control the outcome of elections by controlling the field of candidates. And, as we know, the “establishment” is the Purple Uniparty whose red and blue factions often decide together well in advance who the winners will be. Often the planned outcome for the GOP is to “take a fall,” a la Bob Dole and John McCain.

Their systems for operation are essentially uniform and designed to 1) discourage all “outsiders” from running, 2) keep all “insider” candidates under the control of “campaign consultants” (handlers), and 3) use the campaign process and experience to shape the candidate into a lifelong servant of the machine (e.g Mitt Romney and Joe Biden) instead of a servant of the people.

In rejection of that slave-system of the elites, I bucked all three aspects by interjecting myself into the 2018 GOP primary, being my own campaign manager (until my great conservative Jewish friend and fellow political maverick Greg Neffinger offered to serve that role) and making opposition to the Massachusetts GOP political machine a centerpiece of my campaign. My article “How I Beat Election Fraud” details that story and introduces my ERET policy for defeating the slave system itself. ERET stands for Every Race, Every Time. It forcefully rejects the initiative-killing mantra used by the establishment that one should only ever “run to win” and the companion lie that only people with “professional” campaign advisers can win. We should have people running in every race in every election cycle if for no other reason than gaining experience and making the other side spend money and manpower it would otherwise use on more important races.

I’ll end this piece answering my opening question. The Golden Rule is to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” If I were a mentally enslaved leftist, I would want someone to free me from my self-destructive insanity. So I say we should – politically speaking – go to war like we mean it, fighting fire with fire (within well reasoned legal and ethical boundaries – e.g. no “swatting”) until they have nowhere left to turn but rationality or dormancy. And if we do THAT – with tough love and not vindictiveness – the Golden Rule WILL prevail.

A Place to Lay My Head

First published in The Lively Letter, 12/29/2023

When I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ back in February of 1986, it was because I had finally hit rock bottom in my sixteen year addiction to drugs and alcohol. My downward spiral started when, in response to a minor vandalism spree I carried out the very first time I got drunk (at 12 years old) my mentally ill father destroyed my bedroom with a sledgehammer, including my prized television set I had bought with the proceeds from my paper route. Standing there in shock and shame amidst the shattered glass and chunks of sheet-rock I knew deep inside that my childhood was over and I no longer had a home in that family. That house became just a crash-pad to me from that day forward as I wandered further and further out into the world for longer and longer periods of time.

Just before I turned sixteen, my father had an armed standoff with the state police in that house, over an incident triggered by my having dropped out of school, and he was hauled off that day to the mental hospital for the rest of his life. I no longer had even a crash-pad because my Mom had to move herself and my five younger siblings to a smaller house she could afford, and there was literally no place for me. I became permanently homeless then, in the sense that I’ve never since considered anyplace I’ve lived “home,” and my lifestyle has ever since been “nomadic.”

Eleven years, a failed short-term marriage, and thousands of hitched-hiked miles later I found myself literally in the deep woods on the Oregon coast in a comically pathetic effort to break free from my addictions by “going natural.” Sitting for days under a sheet of plastic in Oregon’s infamously relentless rain, reading “Walden Pond” for clues on survival, I had an epiphany about finding purpose in life by finding a family in need to devote my life to – seeing no purpose or hope in the life I’d been living. A few months later I met Anne in Portland where she struggled to survive her own failed first marriage with two young children to raise. The long version of that inspirational story is published as a chapter in my book of testimonies about God’s miracles: My Life in His Hands.

My days as a homeless drifter ended when I moved in with Anne a few months later in fulfilment of the inner pledge I’d made. We married and had two children of our own before my continuing addictions brought that relatively stable and healthy life to the brink of disaster. It was only then that I was willing to do what all those Christians had advised who’d I’d encountered along the way: “Ask Jesus to come into your heart.” I finally did, and He saved and healed me miraculously and completely, never once to suffer another twinge of desire to drink or take drugs since that day.

I never lost my nomadic nature, however, nor wanted to. I came to learn that my name, Scott, means “wanderer,” suggesting a divine hand even in that. Anne has ever since been the focus of my domestic inclinations: home is wherever she is, and I have simply taken her along with me in my wanderings around the world: 66 countries at present count for me, about 55 for her because many of my short term “culture war” missions had to be solo.

In the interim years, from my 12 year old crisis point until meeting Anne, my Mom represented “home” to me, even though she no longer provided me a living space, and even though were we never really close after my end-of-childhood experience.

Today those two most important women in my life are both suffering health crises. My Mom, for whom I now exercise power of attorney, is in long-term care with incrementally worsening dementia, and Anne, for whom I have become primary care-giver (contrary to my lifetime of innate selfishness) being incrementally crushed to death by her own spine in the slow-motion process of severe, untreatable degenerative scoliosis. But praise God, she remains a cheerful trooper and still has some personal mobility.

Anne’s condition has put an end to our nomadic lifestyle in the sense that we can no longer pick up and move to a new house, state or nation at will (which we did about every two years) in pursuit of our missionary goals. Instead, we’re rooted now on our son Sam’s farm, which he bought specifically as a long-term homestead to raise his now four daughters (a fifth on the way). (He literally delivered the last two himself at home when – both times in the dead of night – the midwife was late.) Sam’s choice is an intentional rejection of nomadism for himself – and a great blessing to Anne – and Me.

It’s been very hard for me to adjust to this, but also healing. Sam has broken what for him was a generational curse of “homelessness” and his selfless reintegration of our family on this property has provided for Anne a sense of groundedness I don’t think I would be capable of providing.

Homelessness has not been a curse for me, but a blessing in the sense that I share what I think is a rare experiential awareness with Jesus. When I read His statement in the Gospels that “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head” I feel a great satisfaction that my decades of ministry somewhat parallel his time on earth as a man.

Looking back over 2023, I realize that I’ve gotten closer to feeling like I have a physical home than at any time since the crises in my family of origin. I can see that the purposefulness pledge I made in that soggy woodland sojourn that led me to Anne has acquired new meaning as Gramps” to these girls and the primary restorer of this fixer-upper farm, structures and grounds.

But it’s also meant tough emotional challenges as it feels like my wings are clipped as my options get more limited.

I wrote this piece because a few days ago I happened to rediscover the graphic above featuring my poem “Why I Wander” that I wrote during a walk on the beach on the Isle of White in England (although the background picture is the Alhambra Fortress in Spain.) It dawned on me after all these years that the reason I wander also has roots in pain and personal crisis. So I’ve shared this with you as another testimony of God’s goodness and blessing. He really does “make all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes” (Romans 8:28).

In 2024 I will continue to serve Him as best I can in whatever circumstances await us, including the transition from a globe-hopping missionary to a home-based historian and motivational writer. All those adventures in Christ we’ve lived – and collected documentation to share – will find their way into print and publication to encourage, edify and enlighten the Body of Christ and hopefully to evangelize many salvation seekers. I thank you in advance for being a part of that through your prayers, financial giving and your own words of encouragement.

God vs. the devil in American constitutional law

First published on WND, 12/27/2023

At the height of my pro-life street activism just after the turn of the millennium, I bought a full-body Satan costume and made a 3-by-6-foot foam-board into a sign shaped like an arrow. It read “Abortion Special: Kill Now, Pay Later” in bold black letters over a background of rising flames. I would go to the abortion clinics in the persona of Satan in the style of a carnival barker drumming up business for the baby killers. In the most memorable of these events, the Sacramento Teens for Life (whom I had been training for months in critical thinking, debate and lobbying skills) joined me for some street theater. They and their pro-life signs were there to represent Jesus across the street from the killing center. The girls all dressed like angels, while I worked the devil’s side.

I was the last to arrive on the scene because I had to change into my costume, so when I got to the abortuary the drama was already unfolding. There were three “pro-choice escorts” on scene: a dominant-and-submissive lesbian couple and a very quiet and reserved black Satanist wearing a pentagram ring, all in their 20s. They were clearly agitated at the presence of the angels, but when the Dom lesbian (not the sharpest tool in the box) saw me walking toward them she literally started jumping for joy, shouting “Satan’s here, Satan’s here!” and then ran up and gave me a huge hug. I had not expected anything like that, but I adapted to it quickly and pretended I had come to their rescue. In character, I shouted a few nasty insults at the pro-lifers.

The clinic buffer laws were in effect across the nation by then, so I was careful to stay outside the boundary, which in this case was the far edge of the driveway in which the pro-abort trio were standing. When the Dom saw me stop there she beckoned me over enthusiastically and I complied, just as the first abortion-bound mom was being delivered by car. We all stepped aside to let the car pass and I noticed that at the sight of Satan, the woman burst into tears, so I yelled out to her: “Come on in! It’s a great day to kill your baby!” (Hoping to change her mind.)

As the four of us were stepping back into the driveway, the Dom leaned close and in a confidential tone said, “That’s not really a good thing to say.” To which I replied, “Isn’t that what we’re doing?” And, by the way, I said all this in a heavy Southern accent, because I had named my character “Bubba,” from the deep, deep, deep South (as in Hell).

For the very first time the Dom got suspicious. She peered intently at me through the eye-holes in my mask, and asked, “Are you an Anti?” I quipped back, “No, I’m on your side!” She then looked at my sign, the import of its message apparently registering in her mind for the first time. “You ARE an Anti!” she stated firmly. But I replied (in a tone of ultimate irony), “Would I lie to you?” Her feeble mind being flummoxed by my faux sincerity, she then ran into the clinic and brought out a 30-something female staffer in scrubs (perhaps the abortionist herself). The woman looked me over for half a second and then turned to the Dom with withering scorn declared, “He’s one of THEM! (you idiot)” – that last part being unspoken.

The Dom then turned indignantly to me, demanding that I get off the driveway. So I stepped back to my original perch and began mocking them all incessantly, perfectly in character, praising them for the quality of their profanity when they swore back at me, while also carrying on my role as the clinic’s marketing barker whenever another car drove in.

This humorous little anecdote, every word of it a true story, contains all the elements of the much more consequential battle of Satan vs. God in American jurisprudence.

America has been in a state of legal and spiritual civil war across this battle line since the rise of Marxism as a global phenomenon in the late 1800s. Marxism, the spiritual and political force behind its religious face of Secular Humanism, has always advanced the satanic agenda, using atheism as a cultural placeholder for the eventual open recognition and worship of Satan himself. The Christian church, assisted by Orthodox Jews, has led the defense of our Bible-based civilizational infrastructure and worldview.

The issue – or rather constellation of issues – over which the individual battles have been fought are all sexual in nature and successive in prominence: normalization of pornography being prominent in the 1940s and ’50s, marital infidelity being prominent in the 1950s and ’60s, heterosexual fornication in the ’60s and ’70s, abortion in the ’70s and ’80s, homosexuality in the ’80s and ’90s, teen sexual “liberation” in the ’90s and 2000s, full-spectrum LGBTism in the ’00s and ’10s, transgenderism/transhumanism in the ’10s and ’20s. At each stage we Christians have lost the battle, and an increasing number of Americans have adjusted to the “new normal.”

Legally speaking, the turning point for the country was in Everson v. Board of Education in 1947, when the U.S. Supreme Court dethroned God and insisted all religions are equal and equally deserving of government recognition. Cultural inertia ensured change would come slowly, but the logically inevitable consequence of open Satanism has arrived. Rather, a relatively harmless, cartoonish form of open Satanism has arrived, a forerunner to disarm the public while the infrastructure of the true Church of Satan is established.

Today’s public face of Satan is really just a leftist version of “Bubba,” with the goal of obscuring truth rather than exposing it. The Satanic Temple organization is a mostly LGBT-populated organization that doesn’t actually teach worship of the demon Satan but just reconditioned humanist ideals designed to appeal to young people and win them to the believe that “Satanism” is benign. Its public program is primarily devoted to provoking and “punking” Christians as a means to demoralize us. The Satanists know that since 1947, an increasingly Secular Humanist-controlled SCOTUS has built for them a full arsenal of legal weaponry to use against us, with most of our defenses being only cultural traditions that pro-Christian judges must diligently parse the law to preserve. Justice Scalia tried and failed to thwart that trend in Employment Division v. Smith (1990), requiring Mat Staver’s Liberty Counsel to write and Congress to pass the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which also slowed but didn’t stop them.

As it stands today, U.S. constitutional law is on the side of Satan’s “right” to “the free exercise” of his religion. We dissenters have been pushed out past a “buffer zone” that protects their evil and limits our ability to intervene. That’s the hard sad truth of our national spiritual condition.

But, the high court has the power to overturn the original cases that set this evil train in motion, and for the first time in decades the majority of justices may be conservative enough to do so. I say, let’s fight for THAT potentiality by denying the Satanists their “rights” all the way up the legal ladder, knowing we’ll probably lose on the lower rungs. My next article will be on a strategy for this achieving this outcome.

Mary’s Moment, Christmas Eve

I’ve been email friends for several years with a man named Michael Roane whose spiritual maturity and love for modeling and teaching the biblical worldview has impressed me. He graciously agreed to let me share some of his insights on Christmas, stating that he has no real claim on them because they were given to him by the Holy Spirit. That’s my attitude also, but, as I said in reply “If being the Holy Spirit’s vessel didn’t confer honor, Mary, John, Paul and all the prophets wouldn’t be heroes of the faith.” That started me meditating on the theme of humans being vessels of habitation for spiritual beings separate from ourselves. I woke this morning with that theme on my mind, recognizing that Brother Michael’s influence on me is an example of the biblical metaphor: “iron sharpens iron.”

This is what he wrote:

“ How did Simeon know when to look for the Messiah in the temple? …
Bethlehem is only about eight or so miles from Jerusalem. The shepherds in that region supplied the lambs used in the daily sacrifices at the temple. When a ewe was about to give birth, she would be brought to a place called “Tower of the flock.” This place, which in Hebrew was known as Migdal Eder, was mentioned as far back as the time of Abraham (Genesis 35:21), and is also mentioned in a prophecy of the coming Messiah in the book of Micah. —

“And you, O tower of the flock, hill of the daughter of Zion, to you shall it come, the former dominion shall come, the kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.” — Micah 4:8 (RSV)

Once a lamb was birthed, the shepherds would wrap it in swaddling and place it in a manger to keep it from being blemished in any way. When the angel announced the birth of the Messiah to the shepherds on that night, he told them, “Here is how you will know: you will find a baby wrapped in cloth and lying in a feeding trough.” — Luke 2:12 (CJB)

This was all the information that was given to them by the angel, but based upon that, they knew exactly where to find him — at the Tower of the flock, where lambs were swaddled and placed in the manger. Some think this is the place where Mary gave birth to God’s perfect lamb when she and Joseph could find no other place to stay….

“And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.” — Luke 2:20 (RSV). Perhaps as soon as the next day or certainly within a couple of days, some of them made their way to Jerusalem, likely to deliver lambs to the temple. They would no doubt have told anyone who would listen about the angels announcement and seeing the baby Jesus. Among those in the temple was an elderly man named Simeon.

“There was in Yerushalayim [Jerusalem] a man named Shim‘on [Simeon]. This man was a tzaddik [a righteous one], he was devout, he waited eagerly for God to comfort Isra’el, and the Ruach HaKodesh [Holy Spirit] was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Ruach HaKodesh that he would not die before he had seen the Messiah of Adonai [the LORD]. — Luke 2:25-26 (CJB)

…. When Simeon caught wind of the birth of the Messiah and the accompanying visitation of the angels, I can imagine him closely questioning the shepherds about what night it took place. For you see, if he knew that, he would know on what day to be in the temple looking for the baby and His parents based upon the Torah passage in Leviticus 12:1-4. —

The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the people of Israel, If a woman conceives, and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as at the time of her menstruation, she shall be unclean. And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised [b’rit-milah]. Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying; she shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying are completed.

Simeon knew to be in the temple on the fortieth day. This was the day he had waited for ever since the Holy Spirit had spoken to him. Prompted by the Spirit, he went into the Temple courts; and when the parents brought in the child Yeshua to do for him what the Torah required [i.e., redeem the first-born], Shim‘on took him in his arms, [and] made a b’rakhah [blessing or thanksgiving prayer] to God and said,

“Now, Adonai, according to your word, your servant is at peace as you let him go; for I have seen with my own eyes your yeshu‘ah [Messiah], which you prepared in the presence of all peoples —
a light that will bring revelation to the Goyim [Gentiles] and glory to your people Isra’el.”
— Luke 2:27-32 (CJB)…Simeon was the first righteous witness to the coming of the Messiah. Only moments later, Hannah a righteous widow from the tribe of Asher became the second witness (Matthew 18:16).

End excerpt.

What a profound set of insights! Now to my meditative rabbit trail, beginning with Christ’s warning in Matthew 12:43-45 that any man without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is at risk of becoming a vessel for demons.

Years ago in my studies of the occult I encountered a belief in Theosophy of “the Akashic Record,” which it describes as “a compendium of all universal events, thoughts, words, emotions and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future in terms of all entities and life forms, not just human.” These records are supposedly “imprinted on astral light” and accessible through necromancers and mediums.

Amazingly, when I went online to refresh my memory of this occult doctrine for this article I was taken to a Quora chatroom where second in line in the comments section was the very man (D.E.) who many years ago introduced me to the truth of rampant Nazi homosexuality (my inspiration for writing The Pink Swastika – which also exposes Nazi occultism). He was defending the practice of seeking necromancers and mediums – on the grounds that the word translated as necromancer could also be translated as “water bottle” as in a vessel made from the skin of a dead animal. Always a spiritual oddball (pray for him), he was obviously missing the biblical point that necromancers and mediums are vessels of demons trying to reach and influence human beings – forcefully condemned in Leviticus 19:26, Acts 19:19 and Deuteronomy 18:10.

It’s just another example of human beings worshiping created things instead of the Creator whose own memory holds everything they claim inhabits “astral light” and more – and which is all accessible to Christians through the Holy Spirit, as Michael’s insights illustrate.

The fact is that human beings ARE vessels of spiritual entities – light or dark, which brings me to my final point on this day of Christmas Eve. Only one person in all history was BOTH a spiritual vessel in the way all of us are, AND the physical habitation of the fetal Christ Child Himself: Mary, the Mother of God, not in any way a “co-redemptrix,” but nevertheless blessed above all other women, with insights implicitly unique to herself and her role — her advice to humanity metaphorically summarized in the command to the servants at Cana, “Do whatever He tells you” (John 2:5).

Tomorrow we will celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and all the eyes of creation will rightly be upon Him. But tonight our focus should be on the young woman, the spiritual ewe, Mary, sheltered in an animal stall, bearing the stress and pain of labor mixed with the anticipation of unimaginable joy – whom God chose as His vessel and channel into human form. This is her moment! Ave, Maria.
