No sooner had I filed my Tuesday column “Pope Benedict and the Antichrist,” contending in part that “Pope” Francis had been installed by Obama to push the LGBT agenda, when news broke that he, Benedict, had authorized the posthumous publication of a book highly critical of Francis for his obvious pro-homosexual sympathies and creeping advocacy of the agenda. Benedict specifically condemned the spread of open homosexuality in Catholic seminaries, especially in America, where it is not merely tolerated but approved. This is no secret to conservative Catholics, many of whom call Francis an “Anti-Pope” and believe that Benedict was “the restrainer” of 2 Thessalonians 2:7.
Bolstering their theory, Francis followed that breaking news with a bombshell of his own, calling for the de-criminalization of homosexuality around the world – the very same thing that President Trump shamefully allowed Ric Grinell to do as Ambassador to Germany (the perversion-capitol of Europe). This suggests a globalist game-plan is in play for flipping conservatives using the same incrementalism that snared the liberals in decades past. (Beware this snare, you MAGA patriots – and encourage Trump to repent of that compromise!)
Benedict’s book also exposed something I was not aware of: that seminarians were being encouraged by their Bishops to use pornography as a means of coping with sexual temptation. That is the issue I would like to address in this essay, because the implication in the news article I read was that Benedict did not distinguish between those two categories of permissiveness in terms of their moral severity. Perhaps he did, but let’s assume for the sake of argument that he intended to equate porn use with homosexual conduct and consider whether that is truly biblical.
First, let me say that it clearly IS biblical in relationship to the purity of God. No sin can enter His presence without being burned up (Genesis 33), which is the reason He created the Tabernacle and Priesthood as sort-of intermediary safe-zone where He could interact with humanity. He gave them a system of rigid rituals designed to ensure the highest human approximation of purity in one select representative of human-kind – the High Priest — who was allowed to enter the Holy of Holies only one day per year (Yom Kippur). All that preparation was just to get into the room where the Ark of the Covenant was stored – not into the actual presence of God.
It was, ultimately, an unworkable system and a flawed placeholder because human beings – even high priests — cannot achieve purity on their own. When Jesus the Christ later said in Matthew 5:20 “unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven,” He wasn’t calling us to self-perfectionism even beyond their hyper-legalism. He was instead highlighting just how impossible that goal of perfection was to achieve. When at the end of that chapter he concludes his list of behavioral ideals (including never even looking on a woman lustfully or making a scornful remark against a brother) saying “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect,” He was really saying, “No one can come to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6.)
When the rule is “Whoever keeps the whole law but stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it” (James 2:10) and the court has already ruled in advance “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:18) the only sound conclusion is that we need substitutionary atonement by the one true and final High Priest, Jesus Christ, who Himself was sinless, and whose victory over sin on the cross of Calvary tore the veil of the Holy of Holies from top to bottom.
But sin is measured differently outside the immediate presence of God by the degree of harm it causes to individuals and society as a whole. Gossiping one time will get an unsaved man killed just as quickly in God’s presence as a lifetime of mass murder, but it doesn’t work that way on this mortal plane. Here we have a broad scale of consequences for sins, best showcased in the Mosaic Law, which Jesus affirmed as constant and binding in its spirit if not the letter. And in that context porn use and homosexual conduct are not equivalent or even close.
Homosexuality is not only a capital crime under biblical law, it is, along with bestiality, the most heinous of the sexual crimes listed in Leviticus 18 – those two forms of perversion being defined as crimes of “sodomy” in the common law. In contrast, porn use, while clearly falling under the general category of sexual immorality, is at the opposite end of the spectrum of moral severity, past such things as polygamy and concubinage which are actually accommodated and regulated in the Mosaic code – even though they, like divorce, violate the spirit of the law.
Pope Benedict was right to condemn the advocacy of porn use to Catholic seminarians, and frankly, the fact it is even an issue is a very strong argument for ending celibacy in the priesthood. As Paul taught, true celibacy is a holy calling but very rare. Porn use makes a mockery of it. Anyone failing that test by continually surrendering to temptation should heed his advice in 1 Corinthians 7:9 “if they cannot control themselves, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.”
The greater issue, however, is the diminution of the relative threat of homosexuality by the false equation to porn use. Francis can and may use that false equivalency as part of his pitch for de-criminalization, removing from the still morally-conservative countries of the world the last best social tool for discouraging the normalization of the key sin that triggers the outpouring of His wrath. If the morally contagious crime against nature that got all but four people in Sodom incinerated is no worse than looking at dirty pictures, why keep it on the books?
I have long supported the re-criminalization of homosexuality (and adultery) here in America, along with a policy of very light enforcement like in the 1950s – primarily to prevent the public advocacy of it or endorsement by government. Don’t ask, don’t tell should be culture wide. An interim step solving many of our social crises today would be to adopt the Russian law banning LGBT propaganda to children.
There is no legitimate basis in the church or the larger society for whitewashing God’s warning in Leviticus 18 (reaffirmed in Romans 1) that social acceptance of sexual perversion, especially homosexuality, will cause the land to “vomit out” its inhabitants. Any church or pastor – or pope – who does this is biblically untrustworthy at best.
As a former Roman Catholic who has rediscovered the Hebrew roots of Christian faith, and how this perspective profoundly enriches the Reformers doctrines of “the priesthood of all believers” and the absolute supremacy of Scripture over church traditions, I have serious differences with many aspects of Catholicism, but I nevertheless recognize that a great many Catholics are authentic, even exemplary Christians by biblical standards. (If, as I believe, salvation truly is by faith alone in Christ alone, whatever other things one believes in – even false doctrines and rituals — are merely sanctification issues that do not affect one’s justification: important but not spiritually fatal.)
One such exemplary Christian is the recently deceased Joseph Ratzinger whose final service to Christendom was in the role of Pope Benedict (Emeritus). His “Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons,” published in October of 1986 when he was “Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” is in my view the gold standard of guidance for Christians in approaching the issue of homosexual sin in the church. Importantly, his letter was not a set of mere suggestion to the Bishops but a controlling doctrinal mandate, issued just six months after the Catholic-dominated US Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling in Bowers v Hardwick (forcefully rejecting the decades-long effort to make homosexual sodomy a civil right) – these two documents representing an attempt to establish a global bulwark against the already massive and growing LGBT assault on Judeo-Christian civilization being masterminded by principalities and powers in the United States.
Recently, Catholic turned Orthodox writer and editor Rod Dreher of The American Conservative published a stunning article titled “Benedict XVI: It Is The Time Of Antichrist,” sub-titled “In 2015, BXVI wrote letter to Catholic statesman Vladimir Palko, urging prayer against the ‘expanding power of the Antichrist.’ ” The short missive was a note of appreciation for Palko’s book The Lions Are Coming: Why Europe And America Are Heading for a New Tyranny (not available in English). Palko’s personal embargo of the letter ended with the Pope’s death, and Dreher is apparently the first to reveal its contents, the essence of which is just one sentence long:
“As one sees the power of Antichrist spreading, one can only pray that the Lord will give us mighty shepherds to defend His Church against the power of evil in this hour of need.”
In 2015 when this letter was written, Benedict had been in seclusion/captivity in Vatican City for over a year after what I and many Catholic leaders and lay-persons believe was a forced abdication orchestrated by Barack Obama to install his ideological ally Jesuit Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina (who became Pope Francis in March of 2013). My detailed arguments supporting this conclusion are published here.
I have been unapologetic in stating I believe Barack Obama is both a homosexual and (still) a prime candidate for the Antichrist, and that I believe the widespread societal embrace of so-called “gay pride” will be the issue that triggers the wrath of God against the world under the reign of the Antichrist I believe Obama is the puppeteer controlling Joe Biden and is thus the choreographer of today’s expanding geo-political chaos. And we must never forget that it was the tag-team of Obama and Pope Francis which launched the current globalist blueprint for one-world government, the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” at the UN in 2015.
Following a private meeting with Obama on September 23rd of that year, Francis gave an unprecedented address to Congress the next day (gushingly reported HERE), and then on the 25th officially launched the 2030 Agenda with a speech to the UN General Assembly. It is in the context of these events, whose Vatican City preparations began long before Francis’ trip to the US, that Pope Benedict penned his Antichrist warning.
Brother Dreher may or may not hold these conclusions, but his article implicitly bolsters them. He writes “Benedict wrote about the Antichrist in his first book about Jesus of Nazareth. It was the part where he discussed the temptation of Christ by the devil in the desert, where ‘the devil appeared as a theologian’, in Ratzinger’s words. The Pope also recalled Solovyov’s famous Legend of the Antichrist, which is a short fictional prose where the Antichrist…appears…as a great humanist, he fights against hunger…Benedict uses this only as an illustration that even ‘interpretation of the Scriptures can become a tool of the Antichrist’…And he reminded that the Antichrist does not have to look hideous, that he does not have to be recognized as evil, but he can appear acceptable, benevolent, as a humanist.”
These are not casually-chosen words by the Pope Emeritus, which I take to mean he may have shared my opinion that the religion of the Antichrist is not reflected in some crude and obviously demonic institution like the clownish and conservative-punking LGBT culture-war instrument they call the “Temple of Satan,” but is in fact Secular Humanism – the perfection of Satanic delusion in beguiling doctrinal form whose deity is man himself (ala the Serpent’s prophecy in Genesis 3:1-5 and God’s counter-action in Genesis 3:22-24) and whose mind-enslaved adherents deny its beliefs are religious.
Dreher ends his article by drawing special attention to the man I believe may be the actual False Prophet of Revelation, the “married” homosexual transhumanist and World Economic Forum philosopher-in-residence, Yuval Noah Harari. Interestingly, I went public with that hypothesis in a WND column titled “Is this transhumanism guru the false prophet of revelation” in which I tied together the three key elements of this current piece: the centrality of LGBT themes to the Antichrist agenda, the contention that Secular Humanism is the perfection of Satanic religion in the last days, and the starring role of transhumanism in the final insurrection against Judeo-Christian civilization, triggering the second coming of Christ.
I am thus taking Dreher’s illuminating report on Pope Benedict’s perspective of the Antichrist as Holy Spirit confirmation of my conclusions (whether or not he would agree with them), and urging my fellow remnant Christians of all confessions to ponder how this departure from/refinement of traditional eschatology might influence our individual and collective response to current events.
Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on Pope Benedict and the Antichrist
By definition every self-identified or self-declared homosexual is either deceived, a deceiver or both. The truth about human sexual identity is manifest in every person’s body: you’re either male or female with self-evident complementarity to the opposite sex. Yes, some people have a birth defect that causes them to have two sets of genitalia (one if which is almost always incomplete), just like others are born with a hare-lip, six fingers or are co-joined as twins – but such cases are rare exceptions that prove the rule. In my wild liberal youth I once dated a girl who had two overlapping nipples on one breast (the other was normal). It was an intriguing oddity but a clear abnormality. There is no “third sex” only the reality of binary heterosexual physiology – and everything about human sexuality originates in and is premised upon that fact.
We are ALL heterosexual beings with the capacity for engaging in all forms of sexual conduct (limited only by morality and opportunity), and we never stop “being” heterosexual just because we decide or declare ourselves to be something else based on the voluntary behavioral choices that we make, no matter how strong the temptation to indulge in those behaviors may be.
Now, there are various reasons someone might perceive themselves as non-heterosexual when they reach the age that such issues become relevant to them. In my study of gender identity disorder, those factors are nearly all if not exclusively psychological in nature, relating to a very young child’s perceptions of his or her actual or surrogate parents. Simply put, in toddler-hood a child first begins to differentiate maleness and femaleness in adult care-givers and ponders which type he or she is. If, for example, Daddy is a violent drunk or is never home, a little boy might decide to model himself on Mommy – a choice that has no sexual implications at that time, but does later when pre-pubescent ideas about pairing with the “opposite” sex get confused because of then-ingrained habits of personality, socialization and expectation.
At any stage of development, even adulthood, gender identity disorder is a reparable condition as the ex-”gay” movement has proven time and again. That fact is so threatening to the LGBT political agenda that it has spent billions of dollars and millions of journalistic “man-hours” trying (largely successfully) to criminalize reparative talk-therapy and demonize the very notion of heterosexual reorientation: all while simultaneously insisting on absolute self-determination for even very young children who (under the guidance of LGBT teachers and community activists) declare themselves “transgender” and demand extreme “medical assistance” to transition. The cognitive dissonance in this contradiction is, literally, psychotic/demonic.
In any case, there is really no such thing as a “homosexual” in the sense of being designed by God or nature to exclusively function contradictorily to ones physiology. Despite their best efforts and massive funding over many decades, pro-LGBT scientists have failed to come up with any objective test to prove homosexuality is anything other than a state-of-mind. To this day there is no way for anyone to know conclusively whether a newborn or pre-born baby will be “gay” in adulthood – meaning all of the relentless propaganda that “gays” are “born that way” with no hope of recovery is a gigantic steaming pile of steer manure.
Sure, there are many self-identified/self-declared “gays” who honestly believe they ARE born that way – but their self-perceptions about their sexual identity (starting in mid-childhood or later) arise long after their orientation was mis-directed by environmental factors in early childhood. And even if that were not true and there were some genetic basis for same-sex attraction disorder (SSAD), all sexual conduct except rape is voluntary. If the all-too-common inclination toward heterosexual promiscuity can be controlled, for example, by married people, why is it assumed that homosexuals have no choice but to indulge themselves same-sex relationships?
And if we create a social right to sexual lifestyles based on inclinations and temptations for “gays,” how can we prevent that logic from normalizing the relationships of “Minor Attracted Persons” (MAPs) with a generation of children newly granted total self-determination in sexual matters (unless, of course, they want to “go straight”)? We can’t, and that very cutting-edge frontier has become the new Shangri La of the sexual revolution – but has been the goal from the very beginning: “the repeal of all laws governing the age of sexual consent” being Demand #7 to the US States in the landmark “1972 Gay Rights Platform” of the first national conference of (200) LGBT organizations – a demand that has never to my knowledge been repudiated by any homosexual leader over the past half-century.
On the other hand many other SSAD sufferers (a majority, I believe) know full well that aren’t “born that way” (having “become gay” only after experiencing sexual trauma or grooming by an adult or older child).
Thus, every “gay” is either deceived or a deceiver or both, meaning that anyone working to normalize homosexuality in society is furthering a false narrative wittingly or unwittingly. False narratives are the stock-in-trade of the progressive movement, especially when they relate to the sexual revolution, which is the core strategy of Cultural Marxism for overthrowing Judeo-Christian civilization. ANYONE who adopts the label of “homosexual” is serving the cause of the political left, no matter how much they might otherwise align with conservatives on social issues, even LGBT issues, because they are denying the reality of their own creation by God as a “heterosexual” and affirming the lie that a person’s sexual choices irrevocably define them.
There is no such thing, therefore as a “gay conservative.” If you claim “gayness,” you are both a liar and an insurrectionist against God’s natural order and His model for civilization.
The closest one can get to being a legitimate “gay conservative” is admit to himself or herself that one’s struggle with same sex attraction disorder (no matter how difficult that struggle has been) is a condition, not an innate identity, and one’s eventual reorientation to heterosexual normalcy would be the best resolution to one’s situation. A struggler of this type, who can abide by a policy of “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” should be fully welcomed into, and be fully protected from “outing” by the conservative movement. I have known and worked with numerous such individuals over the years. The shorthand for this recipe for inclusion is “MYOB, not LGBT!”
Telling outsiders to “mind your own business” about private sexual lifestyles as a matter between you and God is the only truly conservative posture. Affirming the false presuppositions of LGBT ideology by publicly calling yourself “gay” always serves the “progressive” agenda and defies God’s agenda.

On January 6. 2021, which will forever be memorialized as J6, corrupt elements of our government orchestrated the so-called “insurrection” at the US Capitol to prevent key legislators from triggering a constitutionally mandated delay of certification of a contested election to allow for an investigation to be conducted. Those insurrectionists-in-congressional-clothing succeeded and forced through the certification of a blatantly fraudulent election. That breach of their legal duty is the basis for the Brunson Brother’s “Hail Mary” lawsuit calling for the removal of 388 Members of Congress. Ironically, the Supreme Court meets today to decide if they will accept this case for review.
Very early the next morning, January 7, 2021, I made a short video declaring that America had become a POW Camp. By divine providence, I “just happened” to have stopped for the night at a hotel whose parking lot bordered a veterans services office flying the POW/MIA flag. I believed then, as I believe now, that we lost the Republic on J6 with only a short window of time to claw it back before the malefactors consolidated their power and control of our federal institutions beyond the point of recovery. With the collapse of the 2022 Red Tsunami (through the sabotage of RINO traitors and more election fraud by the Dems) that window is all but closed. Only a divine miracle can save America at this time — and one wonders if our national sins of child-killing and sexual perversion have so tipped the scale against us that God may give us over to judgment instead of rescue us. I see no significant move toward repentance among our people that could sway Him in that choice. But, His mercy is so great that even now we might be spared the consequences we richly deserve.
While my comments on J7 about America becoming a POW Camp were only metaphorical at the time, they were actually prophetic for the hundreds of men and women who have become literal prisoners of the actual culture war being waged by the Purple Uniparty against the MAGA movement. Never before in the history of this nation have we seen anything like the rank injustice being suffered by the political prisoners of the criminal conspirators of the 2020 coup.
Now on the second anniversary of this outrage, the right to a speedy trial is just one of the many constitutional rights that have been stripped from so many of our fellow Americans who were guilty of nothing more than being suckered into trespassing the “People’s House and/or the Capitol grounds — along public paths cleared of warning signs by nefarious actors, through doors unlocked from the inside, being welcomed in many cases by the police themselves. And the Democrat-controlled committee tasked with investigating these things (literal co-conspirators in the coup), buried the truth instead in a process so fraught with blatant ideological corruption and abuse of power as to constitute a crime in itself.
I find it very difficult to read the testimonies of the J6 prisoners who are brave enough to have gone public about the injustices they continue to suffer. What I hear in their collective appeals is Psalm 94:3-5: “How long will the wicked, O LORD, how long will the wicked exult? They pour out arrogant words; all workers of iniquity boast. They crush Your people, O LORD; they oppress Your heritage.”
As one who has suffered great persecution at the hands of the leftist mob, I can attest that for those who stand firm through the fire by faith, great rewards await in the form of strengthened character and courage and God’s blessings. For the J6 martyrs, there will be an additional category of reward in the form of credibility and stature in the fight against tyranny. Every person now suffering injustice in the DC Gulag will eventually be freed from their nightmare, and when that happens their voice as martyrs to the cause of liberty will be magnified far beyond any influence they might otherwise have had. Their lives will forever be defined (in part) by their ordeal — and some may even literally sit in judgment over those who subjected them to it.
For now, they deserve our respect and prayers.

This post includes a two article series that I am very unhappy to have to write and a video of my latest Prophecy and Politics show that goes into greater detail.
Part 1: Prideful Trump and the Bible’s Hard Red Line on Sodom
Who enclosed the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and thick darkness its blanket, when I fixed its boundaries and set in place its bars and doors, and I declared: ‘You may come this far, but no farther; here your proud waves must stop’? (Job 38:8-11).
Pride is the original sin – born from self-awareness in the mind of every created being of the higher orders – perverted by the lust for self-aggrandizement in defiance of the Creator. Pride was the poison that toppled Lucifer, the Guardian Cherub who had walked in Eden and among the fire stones but who presumed to covet God’s throne (Ezekiel 28, Isaiah 14). And Pride is the defining crime of the end-times Satanic army which has presumed to covet God’s rainbow as both a parade banner beneath which it mocks Him, and a garment within which it wraps the ultimate form of human rebellion: male-on-male sodomy. “They display their sin like Sodom; They do not even conceal it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves” (Isaiah 3:9).
Pride is the greatest flaw of our great political hero of 2016, Donald Trump. We all know it and have overlooked it for political expedience because he has been such a great champion against the truly wicked deep state. At the human level pride is not such a huge problem as to disqualify someone from leadership, and in fact most if not all of our leaders have suffered it to one degree or another. And Trump’s openness about his pridefulness has, to a point, actually been a refreshing change from the pretense of false modesty and the self-serving guile that has come to define the political class.
“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good” (Ezekiel 16:49-50). This was the sequence that destroyed Sodom, then ancient Israel, and now America. Pride leads to abomination, specifically the sexual perversion of male homosexuality which defined Sodom and which justified God’s genocide of the Canaanites – in His own words (Leviticus 18:22-30).
But Pride in the sense of spiritual impertinence toward God is the yuugest of problems as King Nebuchadnezzar learned, when he declared “ ‘Is this not Babylon the Great, which I myself have built by the might of my power as a royal residence and for the glory of my majesty?’ While the words were still in the king’s mouth, a voice came from heaven: ‘It is decreed to you, King Nebuchadnezzar, that the kingdom has departed from you’ ” (Daniel 4:30-31). Is an attitude much like this the reason why God allowed Trump to be de-throned in 2020?
More likely, it was Trump’s embrace of the LGBT agenda and the dangerous empowerment of open homosexual activists like Ric Grennell. Consider carefully the New Testament’s doctrinal counterpart to Leviticus 18 in Romans 1:26-32 “For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. Likewise, the men abandoned natural relations with women and burned with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. Furthermore, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. [And]…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.”
God drew a hard red line in Scripture linking Leviticus 19 and Romans 1 as the two witnesses (Jewish and Christian) against Sodom. Those who cross that line have failed His test of discernment about the things of this world and invite serious moral confusion into their lives.
There aren’t many Christian leaders left in America these days who actually adhere to the Bible on this most fundamental of truths relative to human civilization. They’ve been bought off by Soros, or intimidated into compromise by fear of LGBT wrath (which is, as I know first-hand, very fierce), or shamed into silence by their own sexual self-indulgences. But as God has promised, there always remains a remnant to be a witness to the truths the world does not want to hear.
Today, I call for that remnant to rise up across this land and challenge Donald Trump to repent of his embrace of what he calls “gay rights” but what we know is the spiritually and socially deadly act of approval of sodomy, which is literally the harbinger of God’s wrath from Genesis to Revelation. And while we are at it, let us issue that same challenge to Tulsi Gabbard, Kari Lake and every other MAGA-aligned leader who has sold out God to curry favor with the world.
Make no mistake, my purpose here is to help President Trump, not to hurt him. In my view as a stanchly Bible-grounded pastor and 30-year missionary to the global pro-family movement, Trump cannot win God’s favor in his pursuit of the White House in 2024 if he does not repent of his approval of what God had declared not just a sin but an ABOMINATION. This is AMERICA! – the nation founded upon the Bible in the model of the Israelite Republic, and it cannot be made great again by defying the God of the Bible and dishonoring the sacrifice of the Founders who bequeathed this land to us by trampling their moral code into the mud!
But what could happen is that, like King Saul who started right but turned evil, Trump could end up being like one of the very tyrants we raised him up to overthrow.
No one who intentionally suppresses the truth of God on one issue stops with one. Sin is progressive, it spreads like a cancer in your heart and mind. That’s the main lesson of Romans 1! Only repentance puts that cancer into remission and stops your slide toward the “reprobate mind.” Trump went from an initial tepid acceptance of open homosexuals in his support base in 2016 to a full throated advocacy of “gay rights” on the very day the “Defilement of Marriage Act” became law. Next he’ll endorse parts and then all of the transsexual agenda, then transhumanism, like he caved on the fake vax. It’s an inevitable slippery slope of the mind for a politician (which, unfortunately, he seems to have become). UNLESS he repents, if he is capable of it — As Old Nebs did and was restored to power! (Daniel 4:31-37). . I have been one of Donald Trump’s strongest defenders. I ran for governor of Massachusetts in 2018 on the motto “Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Pro-Trump.” But for real Christians, when it comes to choosing Trump or the Bible, there is no contest: Trump must lose as a matter of preserving our spiritual integrity. If 2024 comes down to just another choice of the lesser of two evils – both allied with the King of Sodom — I may not even vote. But while there is still a chance in these early days of the election cycle to win Trump back from the clutches of the Rainbow Reprobates, his Christian base should go all out to do so, and only then fully back him.
Part Two: A Worst Case Trump Scenario
The standard prophecy timeline for the Antichrist kingdom begins with a false messiah (the “Antichrist” White Horse of Revelation 6) who arises in a time of great crisis to save the day and put all things in good order. He rules the world for 3 ½ years like an angel of light – beguiling the world with such devious deception and magic tricks that if it were possible even the elect would be deceived, until he is finally fully exposed as the Antichrist. Then, all hell breaks loose (literally) in the 3 ½ year “great tribulation” as described in 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3: “the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and security,’ destruction will come upon them suddenly, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”
The “Day of the Lord” is not a 24-hour day but the thousand-year Sabbath “Day” of the Millennial Kingdom, the seventh of seven, modeled on the actual 24-hour days of creation. The Day of the Lord is initiated by the “beginning of sorrows” of Matthew 24 – the labor process leading to the return of the King of Kings in Glory to crush His enemies, take possession of and regenerate the earth, and then reign from Jerusalem on the Throne of David for a thousand years. All the big stuff we’re waiting for is front-loaded on that “day” but actually takes place over the course of seven human years.
However, there MUST be, per Scripture, a time of “peace and safety” in which the counterfeit messiah basks in the adulation of the world – most particularly in the perspective of the Israeli Jews whose city Jerusalem is his capitol (because nearly all prophecy should be viewed from a Holy Land vantage point).
Supposedly there is a 7-year peace treaty that is central to the process, according to a widely embraced but speculative reading of a single ambiguous phrase in Daniel 9:27. That’s plausible, but it is more likely that a peace treaty (if there is one) will be reached sometime during the seven years and not lead them off, given that the “beginning of sorrows” Jesus told us to watch for in Matthew 24 includes “wars and rumors of wars” so it seems more probable that the false messiah arises while his three companion horsemen are trampling the earth to ruin, and he (like an arsonist fireman) simply steps in at the crescendo of chaos to end it all and be perceived as the “hero” who saves the world.
In the context of current world events from a worldly perspective, that would seem to describe the (now unfolding) Great Collapse, setting up the Great Reset.
We don’t really know how long the Great Collapse will take, but it’s start seems to be somewhere before the launch of the Covid Plandemic in late 2019. I’m guessing it’s actual beginning was the point (in 2018 or 19?) when the globalists realized they couldn’t destroy Trump with the weapons then at their disposal – maybe as early as the failure of the Russian Collusion Hoax. I think the plan for a Great Collapse/Reset had been in the works much longer than that and would have continued to roll out smoothly if only Hillary had been elected as intended.
But Trump’s surprise 2016 victory forced them to move up their timeline and improvise on the fly. That’s why, as an intelligence/military operation, the plandemic/lockdown/election coup rollout was so sloppy and uncertain that it forced nearly all the players out of the shadows and into full view of the public – WE SAW THEM CHEAT WITH OUR OWN EYES – requiring the game-masters to undertake the largest (and still ongoing) gaslighting and cover-up campaign in world history to re-write the history of 2020/21 in real time while huge numbers of people are still watching and complaining (mostly impotently).
Now needing a world-class distraction from the failure of the whitewash operation, the elites chose to finally launch (on a non-optimal schedule) their long-planned Ukraine proxy war against Russia https://newspunch.com/mccain-graham-ukraine-russia/ which Putin further complicated by invading first, before the huge US-sponsored force gathering on the eastern front since late 2021 to crush the Donbass separatists could reach critical mass. And because that preemptive strike allowed Russia to survive the planned regime change (so far) and to expose the NATO military as much weaker than the non-NATO world believed, the only path to US victory now is dramatic hands-on escalation – WWIII – which reached a critical milestone in Mitch McConnells recent declaration prioritizing the defeat of Russia over all other US interests.
Make no mistake, however, in thinking that the elites have failed in their larger objective. They haven’t. The improvised collapse is reaching the same general result as the orderly collapse would have done: wars, famine, pestilence and a mass-culling of humanity.
This brings us to Trump – the world’s great hero of conservative and Christian populism who rode the wave of resistance that started with the Tea Party and in 2015/16 morphed into the mighty MAGA movement. The elites hated him fervently, but nevertheless they used him the best they could, forcing him to submit to the most critical elements of their agenda. His first obvious capitulation was in Syria in early 2017 where he authorized an illegal military strike on the transparent pretext of “chemical weapons” – which I believe was McConnell’s price for un-blocking the Gorsuch confirmation to the Supreme Court. Other capitulations followed, the most consequential being Operation Warp Speed.
Even then, Trump believed he could beat the elites, but after they “counted coup” on him in 2020 AND 2022 (McConnell being the lead tomahawk-man again), Donald Trump finally (apparently) bent the knee, just Reagan did after the landmark Battle of Robert Bork, forcing him to put Anthony Kennedy on SCOTUS as his punishment. Suddenly, Trump has changed in a deeply significant way – specifically turning against America’s biblical remnant: first by offering full throated fealty to the King of Sodom at Mar a Lago on the day the Defilement of Marriage Act became law, then by blaming “no-exception” pro-lifers for GOP losses in the mid-terms.
Trump is now acting the politician and not the patriot. There is fairly obvious calculation here to replace the Bible-believing Christians in his base with pro-LGBT, pro-abortion secularists and nominal/pseudo-Christians. By doing this, he shows he doesn’t really “get” what America was founded to be, and actually was for many generations. He is now, literally, pandering to the “woker” side of the MAGA base and throwing the Bible-believing Christians under the bus. Perhaps he is just taking wormtongue counsel from Old Mitch on how to finesse the Christian vote by giving us scraps – and we could force him back to first principles with a pressure campaign from the grassroots. Or maybe he is showing he never really was pro-life and pro-family at all – it was all just an act. But if he’s doing this now in the lead-up to the 2024 primary, how much further will he “swing to the middle” in the general?
But the worst case scenario of all is if Donald Trump emerges in the midst of the Great Collapse as the deliverer who ushers in the new world order, having been carried over the 2024 finish line by homosexuals, pro-aborts and other true-Christian bashers to the acclaim of a world that now loves him instead of hates him because he “woke up” and turned against the “hard right.” You can do your own math on what that would mean prophetically.

The opposite of Wokeness is Faith because the opposite of Progressive is Providential.
It all comes down to perspective – as a man believes in his heart, so is he. If he believes in a loving God who actively provides for him and for all of Creation, he operates by faith and seeks to know and conform to His will. If he decides there is no God, he operates by fear, believing he must control his own path and the world around him.
If he trusts God he trusts science as it is and adopts the “scientific method” of learning to discover objective truth about the ways things are and how they can be used to our benefit. If he rejects God he sees science as a tool for conforming the world to his will, and wherever it doesn’t conform naturally it is modified to do so. The same is true for ethics and morality. The faithless man creates his own paradigm of right and wrong out of bits and pieces of what God established, and then forces the world around him to conform to it.
When the will of man replaces the will of God as the guide to humanity, it creates a society in which reality is defined by power and in which little strongmen fight each other for dominance over a pyramidal order in which civilization is controlled by one supreme overlord, and every sub-part of that social order has its own pyramidal structure in which might makes right. Their world is one vast jungle and their “law above the law” is survival of the fittest. According to their humanist priest who formally declared God dead, Friedrich Nietzsche, the fittest man is the one who can will himself to power by rejecting the “morality of the weak herd.” If you can slaughter whomever gets in your way without compunction, like Herod did to the Hasmonean dynasty in order to become King of Judea, you are fit for real power. However, if you can beguile the “weak herd” into defiling and/or slaughtering themselves and voluntarily submitting themselves to your rule – like the Satanic overlords of American culture have done – you are fit for ultimate power.
In practice, the pyramid power is shared amongst an oligarchy at the top levels of the hierarchy – a system best glimpsed in the Greek pantheon of gods: mere mythology in the perception of the plebes, but metaphorical truth in the perception of the spiritually discerning. Satan/Zeus doesn’t demand worship of himself alone – he demands worship of his entire demonic command structure, which magnifies his own power exponentially.
Are you recognizing our world today in this picture, dear friend? Are you seeing the interrelationship of all the evil tyrants – the prideful prancing princelings like Gavin Newsom, and Justin Trudeau, and Emmanuel Macron – dominating their own pyramidal sub-structures within the Great Pyramid? As the World Ecomomic Forum emerges from the fog of invisibility to reveal itself as the hidden hand behind so many aspects of “globalism,” does it look a bit like the all-seeing Eye of Sauron on the back of the dollar bill? Or is it just a moon-like tide-(of history)-controller, reflecting the eminence of a much greater Luciferian orb and scepter that had not yet crested the horizon?
Are the four horsemen of Revelation 6 still chomping at the bit or has the gate swung open? The dust clouds of chaos, confusion and deliberate obfuscation in the world today are so thick it’s hard to say – but the imminency of Antichrist kingdom is palpable. Either way, I believe the great collapse is upon us, manifesting before our eyes like the final countdown to detonation or perhaps even the first split seconds after the detonation of the controlled demolition of a mighty skyscraper – as observed in a slow-motion video. Frame by frame the first blasts disintegrate the foundations while the upper structure still looks perfectly solid and intact. It is an illusion, just like the illusion of American economic hegemony seems intact while the rapidly maturing BRICS rebellion shatters its brittle underpinnings.
But that is not really breaking news to remnant prophecy watchers. It’s all part of a plan many of us have been talking about for years. New economic and political systems are already designed and awaiting roll-out during the Great Reset. Neo-Nebuchadnezzar’s Build Babylon Better campaign awaits the final harvest of the Anglo-Judean slave-serfs, while right on cue, a choir of false prophets begins singing harmonies on the theme that victory is right around the corner. Truthful Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, is the only party-pooper sounding the unwelcome warning that the people and the nations will NOT escape the judgement they have fully earned by turning against God.
But God’s providential hand has never been withdrawn during all this time for those few who have chosen to rely upon It and not the arm of flesh. He is the same God yesterday, today and forever, and He has promised us an end time revival even in the midst of the great collapse.
“At that time,” said Jesus to the Disciples, “many will fall away and will betray and hate one another, and many false prophets will arise and mislead many. Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
And here we finally are. All the pieces are in place for the final act, especially in Israel where the first openly religious government in its modern history has been formed – making possible an announcement at any time asserting direct Israeli control of the Temple Mount and breaking ground for a Third Temple. We are witnesses of “the multiplication of wickedness” – even by the man Trump we thought might be a worldly deliverer, but who has now partnered with the King of Sodom for political expedience. I pray he repents for that, as we believers of the remnant must repent of our own enmeshment with the world in order to be part of the promised revival.
It is the Holy Spirit who brings revival, but since each of us is a temple of His Spirit our role is to unleash Him in our own lives and to devote ourselves to the ground-work of revival: testifying about God’s goodness and glory, speaking His truth in contradiction to every lie of the world, and doing good works – more and better works than we have done in the past – in full view of the unsaved and for their benefit, so they will see/feel them and give glory to Our Father in Heaven.
End times revival is not about wearing sack-cloth and ashes and wailing about our failures (Nineveh will not be spared this time). It is about welcoming with all joy – during the tribulation of labor — the impending birth of the Messiah’s Millennial Kingdom, by lifting up our heads and rejoicing in the priceless mercy He has already dispensed to us! It is about sharing the Good News to the lost without apology or hesitancy as the window of their opportunity closes. And it is about remembering individually and collectively how to openly abide in God’s providence, showing by example that we really do trust HIM and not the man-made systems of this world.

An Open Letter to Justice John Roberts Regarding the J6 Travesty
I am a retired attorney whose primary practice was not litigation but issue advocacy in the public sphere. I am writing to you in your specific capacity as the Supreme Court Justice assigned to oversight of the District of Columbia Circuit, on behalf of a great many fellow Americans who share a sense of outrage and horror at the treatment of those who have been arrested and imprisoned in connection with the events of January 6, 2021 in Washington DC, and at the gross and blatant abuse of power being wielded against them by both the Executive and Legislative branches of our government under the control of the Democrat Party, abetted and facilitated by ideologically aligned key leaders of the Republican Party, the established corporate news media and the newly monopolistic giants of the social media.
To those of us who grew up with a deep appreciation for, and pride in, the legendary implicit fairness of our nation’s constitution and culture – confident because of past experience that justice would ultimately prevail in all social conflicts and controversies because of a shared commitment by our leaders to the rule of law and objective truth – the current state of our politics and our popular culture seem distressingly surreal, a nightmare of lawlessness and insanity.
Those of us who get our news outside of the mainstream sources (which typically censor or misrepresent these things to serve the narratives of the conspirators) watch incredulously as one after another whistle-blower steps forward with shocking testimony of ideologically-driven/protected moral corruption and criminality at the highest levels of government, expecting each time that there will be an accounting, a consequence for the culprits and a re-affirmation of our foundational cherished ethics and ideals by “responsible adults” who bravely put virtue and principle ahead of political expedience and fear of retaliation. We are instead sickened to learn that those same institutions tasked with investigating and enforcing the law – our Department of Justice and FBI for example – harbor and empower the most aggressive and destructive malefactors.
To whom can the people turn in this season of “government by organized crime” that has usurped our right to delegate power to whom WE see fit, by rigging our ballot tabulators like Atlantic City slot machines and stacking our swing-state judiciaries with partisan hacks whose allegiance is not to the law but to Don Corleone? Could our constitutionalist “deliverer” be you, Justice Roberts? We hope against hope that you are, even as we wonder why you did not allow the 2020 election fraud to be exposed in open court on the merits of the cases. Many conservatives are so frustrated and angry these days that they will sternly berate me for merely giving you the benefit of doubt that you were complicit in that coup.
To my knowledge there is no specific matter before you at this time that might restrict your freedom to investigate the J6 conspiracy beyond whatever boundaries of “trusted sources” you may be hedged within by those with a vested interest in hiding it. And so I offer you one single source that you may use to test whether you are getting the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the “J6 insurrection:” it is an exceptionally well reasoned and video-documented report by Revolver News on the questions of corruption in the prosecution of the “J6” defendants and the possible orchestration of the Capitol breach by agents of the government. You may find it at this URL: https://www.revolver.news/2021/12/damning-new-details-massive-web-unindicted-operators-january-6/
I confess that even as an attorney I do not know the limitations of your power to take action against what I hope you will agree with me after investigation is an existential threat to our republic. (I suspect there are arcane corners of the law that are not part of legal training these days.) Nor do I know what powers you possess outside the scope of your office. But I do know that in the genius of the Founders they intended the seat you hold in the Judicial branch to be – above all other things – a check on the other two branches for the preservation of the republic, meaning that your moral duty is higher than your official job description. I thus implore you to rise to the role of the “responsible adult” who works to end this national disgrace by any available means, and at the very least to investigate for yourself and publicly take “judicial notice” of the hard facts of our present reality, before all trust in our government is lost.
As a pastor, I know that the only true deliverer for America is the same Jesus Christ who was once openly honored by the court you lead. I frequently draw attention to the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v United States (1892) for the court’s own refreshing summary of America’s defining Christian history and its inseparability from our law and culture. Reportedly you are a Roman Catholic whose own faith should align much closer to that of the Founders than to those abusing power today to serve contrary ends. You know that corporately as a nation we must give an accounting for the sin we have allowed to flourish in this land: the tens of millions of unborn children we’ve sacrificed — and the intentional defilement through perversion of the innocence of those allowed to be born — on the altar of “sexual freedom.” But you also know that true repentance can spare us the consequences we otherwise fully deserve. In that context you hold a unique place of responsibility and opportunity – an Esther as against a Haman – at a comparably critical point in time. I ask you to take “judicial notice” of that as well, in respect to the ultimate high court of the law above the law.
Pastor Scott Lively, J.D., Th.D.

Dateline Washington D.C.. The Republican Party Dies of AIDS (Acquired Infatuation with the Death-style of Sodomy). After a long and painful struggle with a growing infestation of life-draining rectal tumors (including Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney), the American political party founded by Abraham Lincoln – America’s best hope for overthrowing the Marxist oligarchy that stole the White House in 2020 — finally succumbed on December 14th, 2022. It’s last act was to vote in favor of “The Defilement of Marriage Act” which marked the completion of its long transition from “Grand Old Party” to “Gays’ Other Party,” a dark milestone which was celebrated with a Drag Queen “Coming Out” Party at Mar a Lago, hosted by Donald Trump, with celebrity special guest Kari Lake in attendance.
The message to the world was two-fold. First, that the Republican Party was actually not dead, but “more alive than ever by allowing its true self to emerge after many years of socially-induced self-loathing as the consequence of repressive biblical morality.” Second, that Trump’s MAGA movement, still rising as a contender for the controlling power in the GOP, would “no longer be constrained by Christian bigotry and homophobia,” but would instead use its enormous influence over its Christian base “to realign their perspectives on biblical sexual morality to conform with more mainstream views.”
Response to the demise of the party has been mixed, with many conservative-leaning GOP loyalists shrugging it off as just another example of “establishment RINOs” delaying an “inevitable conservative take-over” of the party, and arguing that Trump and the MAGA movement have not really sold out because they still kinda-sorta oppose transgenderism. Others have been less optimistic, arguing that “LGBTism is a virulent progressive disease that has proved surprisingly resistant to all past treatment efforts in other hosts, and that even the Democrat Party opposed so-called gay marriage and transgenderism as recently as the early days of the Obama regime.”
Still others from the more religiously oriented factions of the conservative movement suggest that Trump’s anti-biblical decision to “double-down” on LGBT advocacy – combined with his legendary boastfulness and grandiosity – makes him look more like an Antichrist figure than a deliverer of America. Said one picketer outside of the Mar a Lago LGBT celebration who wished to remain anonymous for fear of alienating fellow MAGA conservatives “It’s one thing to be tolerant of people’s private sexual choices which is pretty much what Trump said before but this is different. Jesus totally condemned ‘gay marriage’ when He affirmed true marriage in Matthew 19:4-6. If Trump now says we need to ‘respect’ what Jesus condemns, doesn’t that make him kind of like an antichrist? He’s making us choose between him and our faith, and he’s totally caving on the most destructive part of the progressive agenda. How can America be great again if it accepts stuff as socially normal that the founders would probably have died to prevent?”
In response to that argument, some more liberal Republicans had harsh words. Our reporter caught up with a few of them in deeply conservative Oklahoma City, part of a scouting party looking at possible locations for the planned “LGBT Museum of Supremacy and Triumphalism” just authorized and generously funded by the bi-partisan Omnibus Bill.
Said group leader Heather (formerly Henry) Bush “It is homophobes like that who are the worst enemies of true democracy. Their irrational fear and hatred of innocent LGBT Americans who just want to live our lives as who we are – loudly and proudly – disqualifies them from having any place in decent society. Thankfully now that some leaders in the Republican Party have come to their senses, our country will finally begin to punish these bigots for all the harm they have caused, and to cut them off from the undeserved social privileges they have so terribly abused with their hate speech and their anti-marriage so-called laws. Finally we see a glimmer of hope for a truly enlightened society where children can freely choose their gender and their number and age of partners — and where loving teachers and community activists can gently guide them to self-fulfilment – without the interference of religious and white supremacist parents, and where the hate-mongers will be in jail or in the grave where they belong.”
In response to all of this, we reached out for comment from the Republican National Committee, which replied simply by return email: “Hey, we’re here, we’re now queer, get used to it.”
And so, it seems, the long asserted appellation/prophecy of Washington DC as “Sodom on the Potomac” had finally come true. All that remains is the countdown to fire and brimstone.
The first organic law of this country is the Declaration of Independence, which is the bedrock on which the U.S. Constitution is constructed. It emphasized the self-evident truth that “all men are created equal” and endowed by God with natural rights. An equal place in the establishment and maintenance of the social contract is naturally assumed among those rights, but in practice it was denied to blacks collectively based upon the rank evolutionist heresy in post-Enlightenment Europe. That heresy claimed that they were an intermediary step between apes and men – a racist ideology that had already been institutionalized in the slave trade at the time of our founding by the power of commerce and the sin of greed.
The best example of slave-master ideology in written form is Charles Darwin’s version in “The Descent of Man.” He didn’t invent this notion; he only articulated the long-held common view of the elites.
The true biblical worldview among Christians was certainly more common among the founders than in our present generation, but it was still just a minority-view against a more worldly-minded majority. An heroic effort was made by the most ethical of the founders to ban slavery in the Constitution, but it failed. That set us up for God’s inevitable recompense (natural justice) in the form of the race-based social calamity that peaked in the Civil War (as one of several causative issues) and continues to this day. Lincoln’s comments in his Second Inaugural Address became the historical counterpoint to Darwin in his summary of the biblical perspective on the Civil War as a reaping in blood what we had sown.
The problem of racism continues, not for the lack of Christian ethics among whites in racial matters, but because the “elites” have always embraced the slave-master mentality and have cynically used the very “civil rights” machinery ostensibly designed to solve the problems to instead deliberately perpetuate them. After almost a century of floundering and piecemeal stopgap measures, they recreated the old plantation-system in LBJ’s Civil Rights Act of 1964, using government largess to lure blacks into liberty-negating government dependency where they became the crop rather than the field hands: each one a cash cow to facilitate the transfer of federally collected tax revenues from vast centralized “entitlement” reservoirs to elite-managed overseers in the big cities. All for the purpose of creating and funding massive armies of entitlement-dispensing election-controlling foot-soldiers called public-employee unions.
And, to ensure that blacks never collectively broke free from the dependency system, the elites kept them centralized in the inner-cities, destabilized their families in numerous ways, sabotaged any meaningful entrepreneurial success among them, indoctrinated their children with every leftist narrative and ensured that the fire of resentment against white people was always kept smoldering in their hearts. Racism in America today is coming mostly from blacks against whites – intentionally stoked by Critical Race Theory and other polarizing tactics.
To ensure that their control could never be effectively overthrown, the elites have carefully fostered and nurtured among blacks the grievance-based Marxist ideology of “oppressor” and “oppressed,” grooming and deploying the most agitated activists like an arsenal of Molotov cocktails ready to be unleashed whenever and wherever race-rioting would serve the elites agenda. Ferguson was not the first, and the 2020 election was not the last example of this strategy in action.
But the most important secret weapon in this strategy is the exploitation/manufacture of white resentment against elite-sponsored/directed black thuggery and destructiveness. The key to elite control is hyper-polarization among the “common” people. Marxist radicalism always grows its own opposition to have an enemy to point to, to justify its rage: a “Proud Boys” for every “Antifa,” if you will. When the commoners fail to produce a counterpoint of their own, one is created for them by the FBI or whatever other social-engineering asset is best suited to the task. In the “gay marriage” wars I always suspected Fred Phelps was a government “agent provocateur” sent out to incite public outrage against the pro-family movement by protesting the funerals of war heroes with “God Hates Fags” signs. In Charlottesville (the blueprint for J6) it was tiki-torch-bearing, Trump-costumed “Antifa” assets fabricating evidence of “white supremacy.”
In the Current Act of the continuing stage play, I suspect Nick Fuentes and Jared Taylor (whom I just learned about this week) are also assets of the elites (wittingly or not). I actually caught Fuentes’ performance at the “Gathering of the MAGA Tribes” in D.C. on Dec. 12, 2020. Being very familiar (by virtue of co-writing “The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party”) with how Nazi propaganda was facilitated by vaguely homoerotic visual imagery in the 1920 and ’30s, I was literally shocked to encounter what looked to me like a deliberate re-staging of a particular infamous Nazi poster with Hitler (reenacted by Fuentes) addressing an adoring all-male flock of acolytes packed tightly around him like sardines. And what I heard Fuentes shouting, with all the passion and charisma of Der Fuehrer, was a string of borderline white-supremacist platitudes.
What most bothered me was that Fuentes was literally and blatantly vindicating the accusations of the left against the MAGA movement, and that struck me as intentional, and thus Obiden-orchestrated. That hypothesis and the whiff of a potential homoerotic undercurrent in Fuentes’ network was partially vindicated in the recent (joint venture?) sabotage of President Trump by self-declared “ex-gay” (but still “gay” acting) Milo Yiannopoulos, using Fuentes and Kanye West as either allies or props.
Thankfully, Fuentes was only a small sideshow in the wild carnival atmosphere on 12/12, where tens of thousands of MAGA faithful from every conceivable constituency flowed and swirled like white-water rapids around both the several officially planned and the many spontaneous mini-rallies all over the Washington Mall and its environs – none of which echoed Fuentes’ themes (except a suspicious-seeming speech-maker at the Proud Boys stage the members there didn’t seem to know).
My point here is that the MAGA faithful need to carefully guard ourselves against the temptation to join the “right-wing” polar extreme that is characterized by blaming “the Jews” or “the blacks” collectively as the problem because that is just another “Whitmer trap” of the elites – used to justify the violence and cancel culture of the left, and to prevent the empowering unification of the conservative/populist Jews, blacks and whites against the elites themselves.
Slavery at America’s Founding
(The above article was inspired by the conversation cited below.)
I’ve just had an email debate with a man who believes in racial segregation and thinks that the phrase “all men are created equal” in the Declaration of Independence was intended by the writers to mean white men only, because of other writings in which some founders held that exclusionist view.
In my reply I admitted that racial perspectives were not the same then as now, BUT, pointed out that the ideals in the Declaration were clearly aspirational, and were articulated by the most ethically advanced men of their generation. I have no doubt that Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, the Adams’ and a few others fully understood and believed that all men of all races are created equal as a philosophical/theological principle, while also understanding the difference between philosophical ideals and practical realities, like Paul’s approach to slavery in Philemon.
“Equal in inherent value to God” is also very different from “equal in function and purpose in human civilization.” Husbands and wives are equal in value, but the wife has a duty under God to submit to the authority of her husband.
What evolved over time was the appreciation of individualism in the exercise of liberty, as America slowly led humanity out of the millennia-old world-wide mentality and practice of rigid top-down human social hierarchy in which everyone’s life and prospects were regulated by their social strata and familial/”tribal” relationships. To them, chattel slavery was just a component of the economic order, one step below indentured servitude on the lower end of scale of stratified class distinctions.
The nearly universal (non-race based) practice of chattel slavery in the “laws” of war and conquest was just a fact of life for them, from time immemorial. How different was African slavery from that realistically speaking to a world with that perspective? Did they view a person enslaved by accident of losing a war as having less inherent value to God than someone born to royalty? Not if they read their Bible. And yet, all but a few went about their lives without turning into abolitionist zealots — just like Christians do today in this abortion and sodomy dominated culture of death we can’t seem to restore to sanity.
The Pilgrims had literally made themselves indentured servants for a seven-year term to pay for their passage to America on the Mayflower. What percentage of the Founders generation were their grandchildren and great-grandchildren or had a similar heritage?
I contended that this man was falling into the modern “progressive” trap of trying to impose advanced ethical mandates on people from less ethically mature generations — Except that he was doing it in reverse by suggesting that the Founders’ failure to impose advanced ethics on their society meant they didn’t hold those ethics themselves as individuals.
In response he emphasized that Franklin, for example, had displayed personal aversion to Black people. To that I reminded him that one can accept that people are inherently equal in value and still dislike them personally for various reasons.
Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on Nick Fuentes and ‘White Supremacy’ Hoax-Mongering
Under the politically tailored theory of “sexual orientation,” human sexuality is not defined by DNA-fixed male/female physiology, but by each person’s subjective perceptions about their own sexual interests. If a person is sexually attracted to someone of the same sex, they are “homosexual.” If they are attracted to both sexes they are “bisexual.” Only if they are exclusively attracted to the opposite sex are they deemed “heterosexual.”
Sexual orientation theory was an audacious reinvention of sexuality that transplanted it from the trustworthy solid ground of biology to the malleable shifting sands of psychology and sociology. It discarded hard science in favor of the soft sciences as a purely tactical move to serve the goal of social engineering. The transition began not with the question of “what is true about human sexuality?” but “how can we make science conform to our political agenda?”
One glaring flaw in this tactic was its obvious implications for the normalization of ALL forms of sexual deviance. If one’s sexual identity truly is defined by the object of one’s sexual interest, then pedophilia, bestiality and the entire spectrum of deviant fetishes are logically also sexual orientations. That fact itself wasn’t the flaw – they intended to normalize all these orientations in due time – but it had to be done slowly and incrementally so as not to awaken the host. The “flaw” was logic itself. The solution was to baldly declare there were only three “orientations” and suppress/ignore all further inquiry. The complicit media and academics dutifully accepted the new “science” and never asked why “sexual orientation” was not actually defined in the new laws beyond simply listing its three-orientation parameters.
(If you recognize this same strategic game plan of denying reality to serve a narrative in the COVID-19 plandemic, election fraud campaigns and attacks on freedom of speech, now you know who perfected it and why their agents – including many Trojan Horses in the conservative movement such as “Gays against Groomers” – are prominent in every aspect of the rising tyranny. The Gays ARE the Groomers every time they publicly claim that same-sex attraction disorder, or SSAD, is good and normal.)
The prerequisite for normalizing pedophilia, etc., was getting past the final political and legal barrier to fully normalizing homosexuality, which was accomplished in the corrupt Obergefell v. Hodges “gay marriage” ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. Why was that necessary? Because the LGBT “community” has always been the elite’s army of conquest for destroying Judeo-Christian civilization, and only when that army was fully inside the walls of the city – accepted by the population like the Greek’s gift to Troy – could the cultural/theological slaughter be completed. Only then could the transgenderism phase of the operation – the T in LGBT – begin in earnest. The goal and purpose of transgenderism is the intellectual and spiritual enslavement of the youth through whom the new global order will be established.
The key to their enslavement is extinguishing in the younger generations the recognition of the normalcy of natural binary sexuality and to invalidate the moral guidelines associated with it. Once the notion that human beings are created male and female in God’s image (with attendant rights and duties) is deemed a myth in the consensus of the youth, nothing can stop the rise of total sexual anarchy.
And ironically, only in that climate of chaos and its horrific, unavoidable “Days of Noah” consequences, will that generation be persuaded that their only recourse is to create a better version of human being to replace humanity – the transhumanist “tree of life” delusion, which has always been Satan’s end game since the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:22-24). That is ultimately what these precious lambs are being groomed to be guinea pigs for even now.
The transgenderism offensive is at full strength now, and with it the normalization of pedophilia. Technically, the normalization of adult/child sex is implicit in the transgenderists demand that children must have the right to sexual self-determination. If that right belongs to the child, and must be respected even to the point of allowing chemical and surgical mutilation to “affirm” their self-perceptions about gender identity, it’s really a small step from there to allowing a child to chose an adult sex partner. That groundwork has long been laid in the national network of publicly funded “Gay and Lesbian Community Centers” whose typical age guidelines of 14-24 years old have created veritable meet markets for hook-ups across the line of legal majority. And social engineering behemoths like Planned Parenthood have long normalized the idea of inter-generational relationships among the youth.
With the rise of the Drag Queen Story Hour campaign, older adult men are consorting with even younger children in highly sexualized and intimate settings with active “parental” involvement. (Now you know where all those government and leftist-controlled adoption agencies placed the children who fell into their clutches). Not even the public exposure of numerous convicted sex offenders involved in these grooming sessions has stopped the spread of this abomination. That indicates an agenda on high (as if we needed further proof).
Again, logic is the “flaw” in the plan. Even while criminalizing self-determination for youth who seek to overcome SSAD through counseling, the same leftist powers insist that children who want to submit to grooming propaganda must have the legal right to determine their own gender identity and be provided chemical puberty-blockers and access to gender-mutilation surgery. And once again, the gatekeepers, including the media, never expose or challenge that outrageous logical contradiction – just as they have never questioned how a person’s subjective perception of “sexual orientation” can be deemed fixed and immutable while DNA-fixed heterosexual physiology is deemed fluid and malleable. Logic and rationality are again defeated by bald-faced double standards and deception protected by the suppression of debate and dissent.
For many decades, the pedophiles have been biding their time, hiding in plain sight, staying organized through groups like NAMBLA, the PRIDE networks and the NEA. But now they’re making their move. They’ve adopted a new label: Minor Attracted Persons and tasked a few allies to run onto the culture war battlefield carrying that flag to imprint their new brand in the public mind. And while public comment and debate ensued, they shocked the public conscience with the grotesque Balenciaga scandal of young children in bondage themed displays and the Christie’s Auction House scandal involving of transhuman figurines of very young children with genitals sprouting from their face. Couched as “art” of course to avoid criminal prosecution, the real purpose is the fix the extreme outer limit of the debate, so that normalizing first child sexual rights and then MAPs is seen as a “conservative” compromise. Mark my words, that’s what’s coming.
It’s the same Marxist dialectic of thesis, antithesis, synthesis (two steps forward, one step back) Americans have sadly fallen for at every stage of the LGBT war of conquest. Right before our eyes, just like so many got ensnared in the “conservative” compromise of embracing “gay marriage” as a way to prove their fight against transgenderism isn’t “bigotry” (the virtue-signaling of the useful idiots of the right), the elites have charted their road-MAP to hell on earth and we’re again stumbling down their chosen path – two steps behind the “progressives.”

Many people who suffer from what was once called an “inferiority complex” tend to develop a habit of self-aggrandizement as a psychological defense mechanism. The more worthless such a person feels, the more they overcompensate, with clinical narcissism being the most extreme form. My own experience on this path never got quite that extreme, but I know the mentality of “inferiority” first-hand, having been raised under the intense and scornful scrutiny of a mentally-ill father from late childhood into middle adolescence.
The most significant event of many that fostered my sense of worthlessness was when my Dad, in a state of manic psychosis, barricaded himself in my childhood home over my having dropped out of school at age 15, and staged a day-long armed stand-off with the state police, which I watched from a neighbor’s house across the street. Shots were fired, but thankfully no-one was hurt, and in the end he was taken into custody and delivered to the state mental hospital, where he was incarcerated in the violent ward for several subsequent years, eventually becoming an outpatient under heavily debilitating medication.
I was the first person to try to enter my house after the police departed, but couldn’t get past the threshold due to the clouds of tear gas still hanging in the air. It was only when I turned around, my stinging eyes streaming tears of pain, that I saw the hundreds of people lined along the sidewalk across the street – and I screamed out in anger and humiliation “Get the F*** out of here!” This wasn’t in some big anonymous city but a small town of about 2000 people. To those neighbors, my outburst probably left many feeling confirmed in their opinion that I was just a “bad seed.” I’d been an alcoholic and drug abuser for three years by then – frequently seen hitchhiking around the county when I should have been in school, getting into all kinds of trouble with other wayward youths, four of us having formed a criminal gang that broke into houses seeking money for booze and drugs.
Because of my Dad’s family-destroying breakdown, my Mom divorced him and had to go back to work to support my five younger siblings. She was forced to move to a smaller house that literally had no room for me. Any decent and honorable kid would have found a job to help out, but not me. I cared about nothing but feeding my addictions. When the winter came and I was homeless and desperate, the family of a former schoolmate took me in, I created a crisis that split their family too. When I went to jail twice in my teen years, I knew I deserved every day of it. And when my first very short and shallow marriage to a beautiful and cultured rich girl ended (I was her “bad boy”) I knew I deserved that too. It was all my fault, and that failure and all the others haunted me as I spent the next few years drifting aimlessly around America, sleeping under bridges and begging spare change on street-corners. I lived recklessly and dangerously because my life had little value to me.
After my then ex-wife again declined to have pity and take me back (the third or fourth time I had circled back from my travels to try and woo her) I considered my tattered life over. When I briefly tried going out with a girl who looked like her, my residual self esteem drained away when she casually criticized my only source of pride, my writing – and that night I threw a decade-worth of daily journaling (filling many notebooks) into a dumpster – lost forever.
I had nothing left to live for, so in my warped, marijuana-clouded mind the solution was to go out into the woods with a couple of books on how to live off the land and become a wilderness-dwelling hermit. I lasted only about ten days, through a series of comic misadventures in which my pothead behavior was the joke. But in the midst of that, in the pit of despair, sitting for days alone in the woods under a plastic tarp in the rain, I found redemption in the most unexpected of places: a few simple lines of text in Henry David Thoreau’s Walden Pond. In these lines Thoreau admitted he had been rebuked by his friends for not using some of his wealth to help widows and orphans. Chastened, he became the financial benefactor of a needy widow. This anecdote triggered an epiphany in me and I knew that was what I must to to give meaning and purpose to my life. I would find a “widow” in need and devote my life to care for her.
I believe that God considered my wholly uncharacteristic self-less impulse to be a prayer for redemption, and He set in motion a sequence of events that led me to meet and marry my wonderful godly wife of now 40 years, Anne, the miraculous story of which fills an entire chapter in my first autobiographical book My Life in His Hands. And, of course, God blessed me through Anne far beyond anything I did for her. That blessing included total deliverance from my addictions in my prayer of total surrender to Jesus Christ. All of the many stories of miracles in this book were made possible by following that path.
Through all of my pre-Christian adventures I did not act like the loser I knew deep down I really was. It was just the opposite. I exploited the one gift from God I knew I had – the two-part gift of intellect and communication – and lived “by my wits” and my eloquence. I was insufferably arrogant and never lost a debate with anyone – even if I was wrong. I could talk my way out of or into almost anything, and impress virtually everyone I needed to impress: getting hired on the spot for most of the 40 or temporary jobs I held (until I got the first or second paycheck I needed to fund the next cycle of my implacable wanderlust).
But then, once my life truly was in His hands, that character flaw slowly changed until I learned to give God all the glory for everything good that came from my heart, soul, mind and strengths. I came to understand that ultimately, ALL sin is rooted in selfishness, and the most important lesson from the life of Jesus was that He exemplified perfect self-less-ness. The more we die to self, the more we look like Christ.
But I also learned that true humility looks very different from the pious false modesty that the world thinks is godliness. Far from it. The Bible tells us to do all things as unto Jesus. And Jesus tells us to do those things in full view of the world, letting our light so shine before men that they see our good works and give glory to the Father in Heaven. Paul told the church to use himself as a model, even while insisting we must boast only in God.
I turn 65 years old this month, and have been recently surprised to find myself feeling envious of the accomplishments of others, one in particular being a certain famous film director (why him I know not). As I was reading his filmography and feeling those pangs, I knew intuitively I could have lived a life of creative fame and fulfilment like that under other circumstances. But the closest I ever came to the prerequisite social privilege was a summer gig maintaining tennis courts at the ultra-exclusive prep-school Deerfield Academy, the entire time being acutely self-conscious about the gulf that separated me from the students there.
In reality, though, I think my life in Christ has actually been more diverse, interesting and fulfilling than those my flesh deigns to envy. And as I near the winter season of it I want to maximize the gifts God has given me to share all of it as a form of testimony to His goodness. Not as an act of pride, but one of humility.
I offer My Life in His Hands as the first volume of that work, for your use as a tool of evangelism to people like I once was – lost in suffering and self.

The global conservative/populist/nationalist revolution that began with the US Tea Party rebellion against Obama in January of 2009 has become huge and powerful — despite the elites’ counterpunch that knocked Donald Trump out of the White House, Netanyahu out of the Israeli Prime Minister’s office, largely neutered BREXIT and (through un-ignorable provocation) launched a $trillion war in Ukraine to destroy Christian nationalist Russia. Yes, they also largely neutered the 2022 Red Tsunami in the US and its counterpart in the Bolsanaro/Lula contest in Brazil but the threat to the elites remains an existential one so long as the rebellion keeps growing — as IS happening. The number of people awakened to the reality of tyranny and the murderous malice of the puppet-masters just keeps increasing, as do the demands for accountability. Will the elites simply surrender and give up their plans? Or will they use the their police-state powers to crack down on dissent like never before?
Click on the graphic above to watch Dr. Lively’s discussion of this topic in this latest episode of Prophecy and Politics.
If the link from the graphic doesn’t work , try THIS.
For a text version of the two essays that Dr. Lively reads at the beginning of this video go HERE.
As seen on Brighteon.TV, Dr. Lively tells the whole fascinating story of fighting the 6 1/2 year, $1.5 million SMUG v Lively US federal lawsuit accusing him of “Crimes Against Humanity” for opposing the LGBT agenda in Uganda. It was the chapter of his life that taught him that “persecution is the refiner’s fire,” but which culminated in a miraculous redemptive ending.
The Smug v Lively lawsuit ridiculously claimed Pastor Lively was responsible for the murder of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) founder David Kato.
Even though they knew at the time of filing the civil lawsuit that Kato had been murdered by one of their own: a young “gay” prostitute whom Kato had bailed out of jail to be his live-in lover and house boy. When Kato failed to pay him, the young man bashed his brains in with a hammer.
The woman to the left of David Kato is Val Kalende, who became the lead plaintiff after Kato’s death.
Judge Michael Ponsor, in a severe abuse of his high office, allowed this travesty of justice to continue for four full years before finally dismissing the case for lack of jurisdiction — but used his order of dismissal to add his personal non-binding and factually unsupported opinion that Lively was indeed guilty, forcing Lively and his legal team at Liberty Counsel to appeal their “win” to have Ponser’s hateful rhetoric stricken from the order. Why? Because the opposing counsel at the ironically-named Center for Constitutional Rights said they intended to use the fake “ruling” in the dismissal to deceive foreign courts into prosecuting pro-family defendants internationally, by fraudulently fostering the impression in the minds of foreign judges that this “ruling” had binding authority in the US. After another 1 1/2 years at the federal appeals court, the higher court affirmed in writing that it had NO binding authority, ending the nearly seven-year long saga.
BUT GOD BROUGHT THE GREATEST VICTORY AT THE VERY END!
Observations on the irrepressible human spirit and the power of censorship to breed rebellion.
Elon’s Impossible Task…
Like the old boiler-based steam engines of yore – or today’s ubiquitous residential hot water heaters – societies without an adequate release valve to keep internal pressures within tolerable limits will suffer violent explosions that can’t be ignored – just ask Deathstar project manager Darth Vader regarding Princess Leah’s Rebel Alliance. Or the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt on the escalating Kanye/Kyrie/Chappell uprising and the sudden call for Jews to flee America for Israel (in my view a cascade of over-reactions that may frighteningly transform a fixable problem into self-fulfilling prophecy).
“Hate speech” like “beauty” is in the eye of the beholder – whose perspective usually depends on whose ox is being gored. And that’s a big problem when it comes to democratic societies because subjectivism is the worst enemy of objective truth and always leads to tyranny by the strongest self-interested faction(s) over everyone else. Which in turn leads inevitably to violent, often murderous insurrection by the serfs, ala the French ‘Reign of Terror,’ or the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, or even our own American Revolution (which was actually just “deadly,” not “murderous,” because the violence was justified in self-defense).
Importantly, deciding who are the “good guys” and “bad guys” in these matters is also subjective in the absence of an overarching moral paradigm (such as the Bible) deemed binding upon everyone. Without the law above the law, one side’s “freedom fighter” is always the other side’s “terrorist” and only “might” will decide who’s “right:” a determination “carved in stone” in the history books of the victor.
When it comes to preventing explosive social rebellions, the release valve is a carefully established and maintained set of objective criteria for judging disputes that applies equally to everyone. America’s symbol for that ideal is a blindfolded Lady Liberty holding aloft the scales of justice. Its codification of that ideal is the US Constitution, clarified in the Bill of Rights and later augmented by the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the 14th Amendment.
The purpose of the US Constitution, unique in all human history, was to establish one common standard for everyone as a matter of right, safeguarded by a separation of governmental powers that included not just the tripartite division of the national government, but also the separation of the federal government from the individual state governments (the 10th Amendment) and the people collectively from both the federal and the state governments (the 9th Amendment). All power was mandated to flow from the people to the government by delegation, which presupposition is the ultimate first principle of America as set forth in the first organic law of this nation (literally the first law in the law books), The Declaration of Independence, which in turn anchors its authority in the bedrock of “the Laws of Nature and Natures God.”
Without that law above the law, all disputes come down to contests of little strongmen whose “might makes right” until one super strongman (Dictator), or a group of them (Oligarchy), or a perpetual, usually family-based strongman-system (Monarchy), or a religion-based strongman system (Theocracy) or some combination of them imposes its will on everyone else. This is an inescapable logical imperative of human nature. The best one can hope for is strongmen who are fair-minded and benign.
America’s own roots began in the soil of rebellion against an intertwined Roman Catholic theocracy and monarchy in Western Europe and Great Britain when “hate speech” meant dissent from government narratives about the Catholic royal family. Yet even then, when “hate speech” was punishable by death, the dissent was irrepressible, spawning the art of “Nursery Rhymes:” mockery and or memorialization of events written in a secret political code hidden in children’s songs. They were the 17th century version of the Ichthys fish symbol of 1st century Christians or “Let’s Go Brandon” for the modern MAGA movement.
“Rock-a-bye Baby refers to events preceding the Glorious Revolution. The baby in question is supposed to be the son of King James II of England, but was widely believed to be another man’s child, smuggled into the birthing room to ensure a Roman Catholic heir. The rhyme is laced with connotation: the “wind” may be the Protestant forces blowing in from the Netherlands; the doomed “cradle” the royal House of Stuart….Mary, Mary Quite Contrary may be about Bloody Mary, daughter of King Henry VIII and concerns the torture and murder of Protestants.”
Both the French and American revolutions also sprang from that social/political context. The French version, undergirded by Atheism, became an orgy of gore and atrocities. The American version, undergirded by Hebraic-influenced Protestantism produced the model society of the modern world in which all factions, including Jews and Catholics, as individuals, gained an equal place in the process of self-governance.
“For my part, I sincerely esteem the Constitution, a system which without the finger of God, never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interests” said the eminent Founding Father Alexander Hamilton (emphasis added).
I believe America’s constitutional republic formally ended on January 6th, 2021 when the US Congress ratified the Purple Uniparty’s theft of the presidency from Donald Trump. Then the failure of the Red Tsunami counter-revolution of 2022 to claw it back sealed our fate as a Cultural Marxist Oligarchy. The looming specter of tyranny has been rising for a long time in the one-sided suppression of free speech and insultingly blatant double standards that serve only the oligarchs and their woke useful idiot minions. Blasphemy codes and punishments are back, but upside-down and backwards. There is now no accountability for the crimes of the elites, but increasingly severe and increasingly blatantly unjust police-state crackdowns on the their victims – world wide. That’s a recipe for revolution beyond anything previously seen – and for resulting brutal suppression like only the Antichrist can dish out.
Elon Musk’s battle for restoration of freedom of speech on Twitter is a microcosm of the state of new America. It is an impossible task because the very mention of “free speech” has become “hate speech” under the new regime. And it WILL be crushed because the oligarchs have the power and the will, nay, eagerness to do it as an act of sadistic pleasure. Musk’s idealism will surrender to ideological imperatives or he (or at least Twitter) will be destroyed. The simple solution is clearly worded objective standards that define “hate” and apply to everyone – but that cannot be tolerated by those who now rule over us in hate.
Only Christ can hold them accountable, and He will, but only after “the iniquity of [these end times] Amorites is complete” (Genesis 15:16). Until then, hold fast and pray!
My Response to a Catholic Brother who took issue with paragraph 7
Hi _. Thank you for the link to https://www.churchmilitant.com/. I have added it to my media list. I happily and gratefully stand shoulder to shoulder with Catholics in the culture war and always have.
Please don’t assume you know my views based on what other critics of the RCC assert. I don’t “abhor” any Catholic traditions and practices except for the claim of exclusive authority over Christendom (which claim I believe is spiritually moot and irrelevant but psychologically coercive and harmful). I disagree with some of them in the same way I disagree with some in the Reform movement when they insist that Roman Catholics aren’t Christians, but I also agree with some Catholic traditions and practices.
In my theology, justification/salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone per the Romans 10:9-13 standard, and once saved by faith all else falls into the category of sanctification/harmonization to Christ, pending our glorification/completion by Christ Himself. I believe in small “c” pre-Roman, Hebraic-oriented catholicism (the universal church of all true believers in Christ whose full membership is known only to God). A justified person is free in their Christian liberty to follow any faith tradition or path to betterment in Christ including Catholicism, Messianic Judaism, Calvinism, Pentecostalism, Amish communal farm life, or Jesus-movement hippiedom, to name just a few.
To paraphrase Paul, all paths are lawful for them but not necessarily optimal. The “narrow way” is not like walking the edge of a razor blade but accommodates much diversity between its boundaries — from the borderline legalism of James on one side to the borderline license of John on the other. From the perspective of someone on the path, it’s actually comfortably wide, and only “narrow” by comparison to the “broad” boundary-less expanse of lawlessness.
The main theological issue I have with Roman Catholicism is its top-down dictatorial exclusivism, which trades the priesthood of all believers under Christ the High Priest for a rigid theological dictatorship that deems anyone not in compliance with its mandates to be unsaved, and which claims for itself the right to add its own man-made doctrines with the same binding authority as Scripture, and (through most of its history) the right to torture and murder people who refuse to submit. Sure, today’s RCC looks quite different from its historic personae, but that seems largely due to the success of the Reformation and failure of the counter-Reformation. The monopoly was broken, as it were, allowing competition to restore a more natural balance to the marketplace of Christian perspectives on things — a balance that looks a lot more like the cooperative egalitarian diversity of the Apostles (as glimpsed in the Jerusalem Council of Acts 15) than the top-down dictatorship of the pagan Roman Emperors.
You asked “Since there are thousands of different Protestants groups, isn’t the subjective interpretation by ALL these groups of the Bible … what has led us to the crisis we face in society today?” No. because the same God that Roman Catholics assume should control the world through one Pope is limitless. Our limitless God can guide ALL of the individual believers simultaneously just as easily as He can one man, and He does so actively and continuously in real time, because he knows and loves each of us personally in our uniqueness (which truth is the essential premise of the pro-life movement that serves as the primary bridge across the Catholic/Protestant divide in cultural matters).
Furthermore, in His plan, there will not be true civilization-wide harmony among men until the thousand year Sabbath Day, the Millennial Kingdom, which I believe is literal (as did many Roman Catholics over the centuries, especially during the pivotal 17th Century). Until then strife is just a part of the plan, forcing all human beings to make choices that represent the steps in their sanctification process.
Learning to self-govern (at the human-to- human level) rather than simply submit blindly to church or secular governmental authority is a big part of our collective spiritual maturation. And learning, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to personally submit spiritually only to Christ the High Priest and not any human intermediary (live or dead), is the key to faster personal maturation (which does not preclude the seeking of advice from the wise – Proverbs 11:14).
While the promise of Philippians 1:6 is certainly true and greatly exciting that “He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” (meaning that EVERY true believer in Christ WILL be together in Eternity in glorified form regardless of their denominational affiliations or lack of them) I personally want to actively cooperate with Him now in that sanctification process because of the increasingly greater blessings one receives at every stage of it. A person hungry for righteousness seeks it diligently, as many Roman Catholics also do when they look beyond the limitations of church tradition and rituals to the Scripture itself, under the direct guidance of the Holy Spirit, whom Christ Himself identified as the sole agent capable of leading us to all truth (John 16:13).
May God richly bless you, my Brother,
His Reply to Me
Hello Mr. Scott.
Although we will mostly disagree on certain aspects of our Christian spiritual paths, I would stand by a person like you anytime to combat the evils that are prevalent in our society today. Your passionate love for our Lord is there for everyone to see. I wish we had you as a Bishop :O) … Keep up the good fight sir and God bless you.

Then Lamech said to his wives: ‘Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; wives of Lamech, listen to my speech. For I have slain a man for wounding me, a young man for striking me. If Cain is avenged sevenfold, then Lamech seventy-sevenfold’ ” (Genesis 4:23-24).
Genesis is the book of beginnings and established the most fundamental tenets of law and morality that undergird human civilization. One of these is the principle of proportionality in the administration of justice – whether by men or their governments. It is the origin of the familiar modern maxim “let the punishment fit the crime,” and its ancient version “an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth” (Exodus 21:24). The story of Lamech is a cautionary tale, as my long deceased mentor on Old Testament matters, Rabbi Samuel Dresner, taught me is true of many of the stories told in Genesis. Lamech is not a hero but a villain, because he treated a wound as justification for murder. He was a victim who, by exceeding his right of justice, became a victimizer – a bully.
Now, I am not a Jew but a Christian, and so I have the benefit of all of the wisdom of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Hamasciach, in my analysis of things. I know that Lamech is the biblical counterpoint to Christ on the question of mercy and forgiveness. While arrogant Lamech claimed a right to seventy-fold disproportionate revenge, Christ taught that we have a seventy times seven duty to show mercy through forgiveness.
But my Christianity is of the Whole-Bible variety in which the Old Testament remains the Christian’s primary guide to matters of the world such as government, politics and war while the New Testament guides us in personal conduct and life within the church. The law of 70×7 mercy is not intended for the secular courtroom where government administers justice, but only for the individuals who have the choice of bringing a legal action into court or not (1 Corinthians 6:1-8).
The best balance of those two approaches is found in Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you but to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” That was the scripture I adopted as the motto of my law practice, and, I think, succinctly defines the duty imposed by God on the followers of Judaism.
We have seen many examples of disproportionate punishment in this nation during the decades that the Cultural Marxists have risen to power. One of the most egregious recent examples is the obscene judgement against Alex Jones. This needs no further explanation. Then there’s the forgotten case of Adolfo Martinez, serving 16 years for burning a “pride” flag he stole from a “gay” church. These punishments are problematic enough in themselves, but what is more disturbing is that the plaintiffs allowed these results to happen without protest.
Especially in the case of the “gay” church, where is the sense of proportion, let alone the duty of forgiveness? How black-hearted must one be to let someone be jailed for 16 years for something so minor and petty without speaking out? How corrupt must one’s mind and soul be to subject the J6 defendants to the inhuman treatment they have received – all to serve a cynical false narrative?
But that is apparently the new standard for our young people after three generations of Marxist domination of the public schools. A stunning new survey of students found that 48% would approve the death penalty for “hate speech.” One doesn’t need a biblical worldview to recognize that level of inhumanity as a civilization-killer.
That brings be back around to ADL and the Jewish power-brokers who hold so many of the top slots in academia, entertainment and frankly all the social and business spheres – and who don’t make any effort to act or speak out publicly against godlessness and barbarianism. It is not antisemitism to point out their power. It is an obvious fact, and an affirmation of Bible literalism. God gave the Jews incredible brain-power, and blessed them with the very covenant by which civilization has operated since God designated Abraham’s descendants as His chosen people . He gave them the power to “create wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18) and the right to “control the gates” (governments) of their enemies. (Genesis 22:17) It was “through [their] seed that all the nations will be blessed” promised God (Genesis 22:18) – that seed being Jesus Christ, who was not just a Hebrew descendant of Abraham but a Judean in the direct royal line of David!
As a Whole-Bible Christian I have no problem with the Jews having such enormous power. I don’t even blame them for some of the tactics for control they developed in self-defense to centuries of harassment and persecution by the Christian church prior to the Reformation (and to a lesser extent since then). Many use that power wisely and altruistically. Whenever some brilliant new medical or scientific discovery is announced from Israel, is anyone really surprised that it’s the Jews?
But every coin has two sides. I do have a problem with the many Jews who abuse their power because they have abandoned their biblical foundations. I’m talking about people like Paul Singer who funded a dossier against me by the ultra-reprobate Human Rights Campaign, because I traveled around the world teaching the truth of his supposed religion in Leviticus 18:22. And the shark-pod of Jewish lawyers at the SPLC whose only standards on “hate” issues are double standards. And all the anti-Torah Jews in Hollywood and the New York media whose lives epitomize the arrogance of Sodom! Where do these guys get off ignoring the most basic of behavioral standards that God set for humanity and still call themselves Jews? Are these specific individuals (judged only on their individual merit) perhaps of the Synagogue of Satan Jesus warned about in Revelation 2:9?
But that’s not who this article is about or directed toward. I’m addressing this to the authentic religious Jews who have the ability and authority to stand up for God’s truth, and against the bullying of the Marxists (among whom are many powerful atheistic Jews).
I’m no fan of Kanye West, and no, I’m not going along with his name change (was it slave-masters who named him Kanye or was it his Mom and Dad?) What Kanye said about going “Death-con 3 on Jewish people” was a really stupid outburst from a mentally ill man with terrible impulse control and it deserved push-back. But talk about a Lamech-level over-reaction! You have to completely destroy the man for one stupid comment? – which, while not justified, was triggered by alleged bullying by specific Jewish cancel-culture zealots unhappy with his “white lives matter” stunt? A simple acknowledgment by ADL of the context would have neutralized the venom and created a teachable moment on how stereotyping hurts the innocent along with the guilty.
But instead they exploited the confusion to go “Death con 3″ on West to strike fear in the hearts of all the bystanders – ironically bolstering the false stereotype of Jews as one monolithic entity who care only for themselves, and sowing increased resentment among Blacks whose own long history of victimhood makes them very protective of those from their community who have risen to become celebrities.
As a guy who regularly does battle against Jew-haters of the Antizionism cult, I can tell you they are practically giddy over what ADL et al have done to Kanye West – offering it up now as justification for their Antisemitism. And that’s the point of this article. When victims react out of all proportion to a wound they suffer, they stop being victims and become bullies. It has nothing to do with their ethnicity or their religion. It has to do with their humanity.

Donald Trump’s remarkable victory in 2016 opened an 11th hour window of reprieve from the enslavement of the world to a global Marxist order. America became The Republic We Couldn’t Keep upon the finalization of the Trump takedown on January 6th, 2021. Trump’s 2022 counter-offensive to claw it back failed – and our window of reprieve closed – when the Purple Uniparty killed the 2022 red tsunami, neutralizing the threat of their overthrow in the short term, granting them another two years to consolidate their power and remove MAGA leaders/influencers from the battlefield. That consolidation will now proceed at a dramatically faster pace (enter the newly mobilized 87K IRS storm troops) — except for the Trump judges, which threat can also be neutralized if they “Scalia” Clarence Thomas (or one of the other conservatives) and put Roberts back in the swing-vote seat at SCOTUS.
I’d love to be wrong, and we can’t stop fighting in any case, but I think we need to adjust our perspective and strategy to start building a “French Resistance” movement to fall back to if the civil war in the 2024 GOP primary shatters the MAGA movement, which looks likely at this point. You can be certain the Trump will not back down but will wage total war to reclaim what was stolen from him.
Only a fealty pledge by DeSantis to Trump on the grounds that a Trump second term is his by right could prevent this. In the potential 2024 primary field, only DeSantis has the street-cred to represent an existential threat to a second Trump term (but not enough to beat Trump head-to-head), so if he publicly defers and stands down, the other heavy hitters will likely do the same, preventing the political bloodbath the Never-Trumper RINOs so desperately crave. (They’re happy to remain controlled opposition in the minority so long as they keep the perks.)
Convincing DeSantis to respectfully defer to Trump should become the priority of every American conservative. And just maybe, given that a narrow MAGA beachhead was just established in the House of Representatives, we might just crack that window of reprieve back open an inch or two. But human nature, and the apparent appeal of the dump-Trump talking points to the useful idiots of the right, make that seem unlikely at the moment.
In any case, there’s another existential threat to Trump lurking on the periphery, and that is the potential of a Tulsi Gabbard third party Ross Perot-style campaign run by the same Bush machine that currently has its hooks in DeSantis. After I published my recent WND Column Tulsi Gabbard and the Need for a MAGA Natural Rights Coalition, cautiously urging conservatives to give her a chance to prove herself trustworthy, several people reached out to me warning that Tulsi’s pro-MAGA overtures might be laying the groundwork for second run at the presidency, this time as an Independent.
I promised to raise that point in a follow-up article even before the Tulsi signed on as a Fox News contributor, where she is unlikely (even if she wanted to) to have the juice to defy RINO Paul Ryan and Rupert Murdoch’s Clintonista heirs like their too-big-to-fire golden goose Tucker Carlson does.
I have always been of the opinion that Ross Perot was in league with the Bushies to throw the presidency to Bill Clinton in 1992 because former Ronald Reagan vice president HW, titular head of a deeply and broadly conservative GOP base, simply could not roll back the Reagan policies as fast as Slick Willy could – and that was the key priority of the Purple Uniparty in the 1990s. Perot was essentially the scapegoat to take the blame for a massive defeat of the conservatives, while leaving the Bush Dynasty politically unscathed. The point being that the Bush camp knows how to run a spoiler campaign without getting their hands dirty, and Tulsi would be a highly suitable candidate to play the part of Perot. I hope I’m wrong about her – but even if I am, the third party spoiler strategy remains a strong possibility in 2024 with someone else in the Perot role.
One thing has not changed, and that is the absolute fanatical commitment of the elites to destroy Donald Trump and the conservative/populist movement he represents. They have not been weakened but strengthened by the 2022 elections in the sense that they absorbed the full MAGA counterpunch at its greatest possible force and stayed on their feet with a minimal loss of resources and territory. Now its their turn to press forward again, against a demoralized and divided rebel army, with the freedom to escalate the savagery and intensity of their tactics without fear of public opinion. The Republic couldn’t stop them. Democracy cannot stop them. Humanitarian questions of justice and ethics and morality and even rationality will not stop them.
What comes next is likely WWIII, famine, pestilence and a deep culling of the human race to complete the Great Collapse make the Great Reset literally irresistible. They WILL have their global Marxist tyranny that only God Himself can and will conquer in His perfect timing. The only question is how long it will take them to get there and how much we can slow them down by fighting on for truth and right.
The Deeper Prophetic Perspective – Same Facts, Different Vantage Point
The Feast of Trumpets in September 2015 marked the beginning of the first seven-year Shemita cycle of the first officially designated Jubilee year since the Roman expulsion of the Jews from the Holy Land in 135AD. 2015/16 was retroactively designated the Jubilee year by the newly reconstituted Jewish Sanhedrine, based upon its calculation that a majority of the world’s living Jews had returned to the Holy Land: the prerequisite for that all-important holiday to be officially observed.
2015 also marked the emergence of strongly pro-Israel Donald Trump as a “deliverer” figure in the mode of the Judges of the Israelite Republic. Shortly after the fall feasts pilgrimage period ended in early October, 2015, Trump became the frontrunner in the crowded Republican field and from that point became an unstoppable political force.
In November of 2016, Donald Trump shocked the world by beating the Jezebel/Astarte figure Hillary Clinton, who had been intended by the Satanic elites to finish the work begun by the Israel-hating Barack Obama. The one-world globalist train, packed with human beings destined for slavery and death, was in sight of the final station when Trump derailed it.
What then ensued was an all-hands-on-deck war on Trump, politically equivalent to the siege of Masada by the Romans or, perhaps more accurately the last days siege of Jerusalem by the armies of the wicked. Why? Because Trump defied all the principalities and powers of the wicked by formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the US embassy there. The spiritual and prophetic importance of that move cannot be overstated, and far outshadows all of his other pro-Israel initiatives including the Abraham Accords. The Jews minted an enormously significant half-shekel temple-offering coin to honor him for that, equating Trump with the Persian Emperor Cyrus venerated in the Bible and lionized by the Jews as “Cyrus the Messiah” for conquering Babylon and liberating them from captivity.
It is important here to clarify the meaning of “deliverer” or “messiah” in the context of the Israelite Republic as showcased in the books of Joshua and Judges. None of Israel’s many judges were perfect like Jesus Christ was – they were all, like Trump, flawed mortals who fell far short of Christ, as the Bible documents in unflattering detail.
That context is critical, because America IS the last-days reiteration of the Israelite Republic, right down to its 400 year lifespan, which can be measured from its birth with the Mayflower Compact of November 1620, to its death in November of 2020. In this reiteration Donald Trump plays the role of the last judge, Samuel, who tried but failed to stop the people from trading in their republic for a monarchy. And if Trump is Samuel, Biden is Saul, the demon-possessed first king defined by increasing mental instability.
And if Biden is Saul, there is waiting in the wings a David figure – but a False David who will look to the world like a true deliverer, showing many signs and wonders to persuade the people he is their savior, but in reality being the Antichrist who will finally be revealed in God’s perfect timing.
The False David will be the rider of the white horse, bearing the rainbow, the symbol of God’s presence and authority, and he will likely declare a false Jubilee just as the true Messiah, Jesus Christ declared a true Jubilee at the start of His ministry in Luke 4:14-20.
The world will be desperately clamoring for such a deliverance then because it will be in the depths of the Great Collapse. And the False David will oblige by launching the Great Reset with a global debt jubilee and new economic/financial order.
Since January 7th 2021 I have been offering this perspective and refining my analysis as events have made the prophesies increasingly less murky. The culture warrior side of me has argued that yes, our republic definitely ended with the November 2020 elections, but enough of our infrastructure remained that Americans could still claw back control in the 2022 elections. I argued that the window of reprieve Donald Trump had won for us in 2016 was closing but still open enough to reclaim our birthright that the founders had bequeathed to us. The pastor/teacher/prophet side of me knew this optimism was probably misplaced, but that there was enough ambiguity in the prophecies to keep hope alive.
That window is now closed. I thought they’d need to use WWIII or a domestic false flag on the scale of 9/11 to pull it off, but in the end all they needed to do was tweak their election fraud and ballot harvesting methods. They already had the comprehensive lists of “voters” to harvest, and the hidden infrastructure for padding the ballot counts as needed thanks to the 2020 Zuckerbucks conspiracy, so it was probably easier to pull off this time, despite the heightened public scrutiny.
2022/23 is the first year of the current Shemita cycle. The battle of good and evil in our land is by no means over, but the forces of evil largely defeated our 2022 counter-offensive, leaving us only a (potential) narrow beachhead in the House of Representatives (still tentative as of the time of writing this article). There is really nothing to stop them now from continuing their consolidation of power and transition to a “monarchy” under the Antichrist, whomever that might be. Indeed, with the threat of overthrow now neutralized, I expect they will rapidly escalate their roll-out of a draconian police-state and begin persecuting, cancelling and J6ing all those pesky MAGA leaders, using all the resources at their command, including the 87K new militarized IRS agents, a reinvigorated “public health” enforcement regime, and a cashless/social credit merit and punishment system led by Big Tech, Big Business and the Banksters.
The red horse of WWIII seems almost certain to appear soon, ensuring that famine, pestilence and a deep culling of the “surplus population” will follow in their turn.
They will, of course, need to end the conservative majority on the Supreme Court and put the presumed Hobbs-case leaker John Roberts back into the swing-voter seat. I woke up this morning with the concern that they might do to Clarence Thomas what many of us believe Obama’s goons did to Scalia. (God save him from that fate!)
And yet, even if all these speculations are prophetic, our job remains the same: occupy until He comes, gather the lost into the heaven-bound lifeboats, and keep fighting the enemy with all we’ve got to slow them down and maximize the reach and effectiveness of our evangelism and discipleship while THAT window remains open. So lift up your heads in holy anticipation, because beyond this dark night is the dawn of Christ’s own kingdom.
PS. The brand new Jewish government is, according to the Israelis themselves “Israel’s First Religious Regime” which means that the construction of a Third Temple is far more likely now than at any time since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on The Window of Reprieve Has Closed — Two Perspectives
It is 4:40 am on November 9th, 2022 and I have been awake for about half an hour reviewing the news from yesterday’s election. While there are some positive outcomes in key races, with Florida being the brightest star, on the whole my first impression is that our collective effort to claw back our constitutional republic from the Marxists has largely failed. It wasn’t a total failure – the flame of hope still flickers in the darkness — but in my estimation it wasn’t enough to stop the Marxists from consolidating their power but will merely slow them down. Their now twice-proven proficiency in election fraud, combined with continuing control of the federal government, news and social media and a huge swath of the judiciary puts them in a slightly more fortified position today than they had yesterday.
Is it possible that we could still win the war to restore America in 2024? Yes. Is it more or is it less likely based on yesterday’s outcome? Less. If we fail to get a majority in the House after all the mail-in ballots are “processed” it will be lesser still.
Yesterday I published the first draft of my new short book The Battle for Measure 9: The forgotten true story of how pro-family conservatives (temporarily) WON the LGBT war on civilization in 1992 as told by a first-hand witness. I chose that publication date because it was the 30th anniversary of the vote, but perhaps His prompting of that choice was the Holy Spirit’s way of highlighting that the tide of battle has never really changed. As I’ve said before, my entire thirty plus year career has been one long rear-guard action as the pro-family movement has steadily lost ground to the Marxists – and this seems to be just a continuation of that reality.
To be frank, I feel more like a Brazilian today than an American: both nations have succumbed to systemic corruption seemingly beyond the ability of honest electioneering to overcome. In both countries I predict an increase in frustration-driven violence and escalating police-state countermeasures. I hope I’m wrong. My prior warnings over the past few months that the elites might get the US into WWIII or stage a false flag to better control the election battleground proved false – but only because they didn’t need to go that far because they knew they could simply tweak their election fraud tactics to accomplish the same result. I still think those extreme measures are open options for the larger geopolitical conflict that rumbles on.
As the prospects for worldly victories grow darker, the likelihood increases that the promised final redemption of end-times prophecy will truly soon be dawning before our eyes. BUT, as the old saying goes, it is always darkest before the dawn, and we’re not in its blackest depths yet by far. We have yet to experience the fullness of the “Great Collapse” (the four horsemen – what Jesus called “the beginning of birth pangs”) and the “Great Reset” (the Antichrist kingdom) which seem to be looming menacingly on the near horizon. Like a woman in labor, joy comes in the morning, but the night of travail must come first.
I have always had a two-track ministry emphasizing the parallel mission-fields of the Gospel and the Culture war (exemplified in the title of my TV show Prophecy and Politics). My priorities shift back and forth between the two as circumstances and opportunities change but only as a matter of degree because I never stop working in both realms simultaneously.
Two years ago, on the morning of January 7th, 2021, when it was clear that the Purple Revolutionists had completed their 2020 election coup the day before, I did a short video titled “America the POW Camp.” It was the first time I opined that we actually lost the republic. Only later did I begin arguing that we had a short window of time to claw it back. Still later I began opining that the 2022 elections would determine if recovery of the nation was possible, and that if we failed in 22 I would shift my priority to evangelism, because the Marxist consolidation of power would make further political efforts futile. Last night was enough of a mixed bag that the path ahead looks more foggy grey than clear black or white, so I will continue to keep a balance and stay active in both arenas.
A New Battle Strategy
For the last two decades the Lord has been incrementally awakening me to the theme of natural rights as the ultimate answer to the LGBT agenda (which agenda and timeline I contend includes the emerging crisis of transhumanism). Formally recognizing and conserving the natural family in the same way the environmentalists work to conserve the natural order of rainforests and tide pools will be the most powerful and effective counter-action to LGBT cultural hegemony.
The conservative political movement must stop its long-pursued losing strategy of conserving the ever leftward drifting “status quo” and begin conserving our foundational natural rights that derive from “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” both enumerated and implied in our Declaration of Independence.
That means, in brutal frankness, we must fight just as hard or harder against Adultery, Fornication and Homosexuality as against Transgenderism, and must NOT stipulate that those “lost” battles justify our acceptance of a “new normal” moral standard for each successive generation. It is IMPOSSIBLE to defeat transgenderism while normalizing homosexuality and heterosexual immorality because all these forms of sexual deviance are just separate heads on the same hydra.
BUT, because that unassailable logical truth will be strongly resisted by the majority (or large plurality) of conservatives who are already morally compromised – there must be an alternative approach that both emphasizes moral and logical clarity about natural rights and provides a realistic chance of creating public policy that acknowledges and protects the natural order of sexuality and the family. The solution is create the equivalent of “nature preserves” for natural rights in the law.
Natural rights was a common interest I held with the late pro-family hero Julio Severo. And as it happens the Lord has just opened doors to begin working with pastors in America who are from Julio’s native Brazil. My plan is to seek their help to develop a natural rights agenda with specific public policy objectives and to make a mission trip to Brazil to discuss that agenda and possibilities for its advancement in the Brazilian legislature, where Julio had an outsized influence, even from exile. The time to do that is now, before the Marxist tyrant Lula is able to rebuild the homofascist coalition that drove Julio’s family from the country in 2007.
And I will take whatever strategies and tactics that gain traction in largely pro-family Brazil and shape them for use here in the US. If you would like to support that effort, donate here and choose the option “Julio Severo (to carry on his work)”
PS. While in Brazil I will also seek to raise financial support for Julio’s widow and children. To those who have already given to that fund, I thank you deeply on their behalf. Our ministry gives 100% of those donations to the family.
Let me first state that I strongly endorse the America First MAGA agenda pretty much as it is. But I have some ideas for new policy objectives, strategies and tactics (and tweaks to existing ones) that could help President Trump and the MAGA movement refine the message and broaden the base over the next two years. My last article of this type was published ten years ago just after the 2012 election – two years before my first of two runs for Governor of Massachusetts. I titled it Time For a New Coalition in the GOP – and some of its ideas were (coincidentally) adopted by Trump in 2015 and 16.
1) We should work to reform the corporate media and force it back into the role of informing the public with honest and balanced reporting of the news, and end the corrupt and manipulative social-engineering agenda that exists today. How? MAGA should add a new standard talking point that the First Amendment’s protections for a “free press” presuppose actual freedom by journalists and the media organs that employ them, and that top-down coercive ideological conformity (in news reporting as opposed to editorials and “advocacy journalism” that is clearly labeled as such) is a form of intellectual/political slavery that falls outside of constitutional protections – perhaps even violating the 13th Amendment. When media cry foul, remind them that all other First Amendment rights have been narrowed except for the press and they have endorsed or even championed those revisions.
Further, remembering that the Bill of Rights is a set of restrictions on government, not the citizenry, any ideological media bias that is directly influenced by government actors or agencies should be deemed constitutionally violative on its face. ALL government employees, including especially intelligence agents and agencies, should be required to formally disclose to the public under threat of meaningful personal financial penalty any relationships with journalists or media entities in which they advocate for or lobby for public policy objectives. Government manipulated media is NOT free. And there is nothing that stops government agencies from advocating their policies through their own official media organs except fear of transparency and public suspicion.
Legislation should add the tort of “False Light” to defamation statutes making it far easier for victims of press misrepresentation to win damages from journalists and media entities, with specific early-stage litigation protections for media that maintain and can document a high standard of balance and fairness in news reporting on a case-by-case basis. Laws governing fair-trade practices and civil rights should allow for news media entities which engage in public commerce (while expressly or implicitly purporting to be neutral reporters) to be legally accountable for religious and political discrimination in hiring and the workplace.
Legislation regarding PUBLIC media should limit public funding to only those entities that meet clear objective standards for fair and balanced coverage in which all significant stakeholders in a matter of public interest have their views accurately represented in reasonably equal measure. Public media should be actively reshaped in this regard to become a model for private media to follow, and their new and improved standards for such things as journalistic ethics and editorial board balance/nonpartisanship should be widely published and promoted as a guide for the citizens to judge the social responsibility of the private media.
2) MAGA should build a non-sectarian “natural rights” coalition to, first, defend and conserve the monogamous one-man, one woman, child-cherishing natural family as the universally recognized foundation of civilization, and second, to promote all the related “self-evident” natural rights that are enumerated and implied in our Declaration of Independence as “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” This must include the right to life, the right of children to a real mom and a real dad, the right of parents to direct the lives of their children including education, the right of family-centered communities to set their own family-related policies, the right to greater local control of government and ALL its policies, and the right of all people to bodily self-determination regarding such things as medical care and “vaccines.”
As I wrote in my recent WND column Tulsi Gabbard and the Need for a MAGA Natural Rights Coalition “[I]f we normal people who love marriage, children and family all banded together and restored those natural rights across the world, 95% of our social and geopolitical problems would be resolved, and the elites would be exposed for the tiny, insane radical fringe they have always been.” A diplomatically facilitated natural rights coalition would draw people from every ethnicity and world religion as well as clear-thinking secularists to the redemptive, world-reshaping world-view that “Our Bond is Family.”
3) We should adopt and promote ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ (DADT) as a culture-wide policy on LGBT matters. The military had brilliantly solved the thorny problem of balancing individual right on private sexual conduct with the need for public affirmation of the majority’s sexual normalcy in the DADT compromise. After Obama forced the repeal of that policy our military quickly degenerated into the WOKE nightmare that the entire world now rightfully mocks and our enemies celebrate. The same thing happened to our whole society when we ended the de-facto culture-wide DADT that existed in the 1950s and early 60s. We need a return to that workable compromise before we collapse like sexually-anarchistic Weimar Germany did into the hell-scape of homofascist Nazism.
MAGA conservatives with a homosexual “orientation” should set the example for the society by opposing the public normalization of LGBT political goals and agree that private sexual choices remain private to preserve the primacy of natural family values as the social norm. Personal discretion should be the price of public tolerance for private lifestyles. MYOB (mind your own business) should replace LGBT as the motto of conservatives who suffer with same-sex attraction disorder and their allies.
4) We should pass legislation requiring transparency and formal third party citizen oversight of all contractual agreements involving public officials and public employee unions including the power of the citizen overseers to require public ratification of contracts they deem tainted by actual or perceived conflicts of interest. This legislation should also ensure that no public official can represent the public in union contract negotiations whose own election prospects could be substantially affected by the votes of public employee union members.
5) We should revive and prioritize some variation of President Trump’s “Platinum Plan” for facilitating entreprenurialism and self-reliance in the inner cities. Breaking inner-city families free from government dependency is the right and smart thing to do both morally and politically.
I will continue this list in a future article.
Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on Proposed MAGA Policy Objectives for the 2024 Election Cycle
The all-too predictable RINO campaign to defeat Donald Trump’s bid for the White House in 2024, before it has even been formally announced, has begun. Interestingly, it features as its leading argument that Ron DeSantis would make a better president and wouldn’t have all the “divisive” and distracting baggage Trump has. We’re expected to believe that the RINOs actually want DeSantis as president, when all they really want is a Trump/DeSantis primary-season bloodbath so the White House will stay blue and they can keep their lucrative posts as willingly controlled “opposition” and preserve the corrupt cozy collegiality of the Purple Uniparty.
Does anyone really doubt that Mitch McConnell deliberately sabotaged the MAGA takeover of the U.S. Senate to preserve his own place and power? Does anyone really believe that the light-in-the-loafers Lincoln Project perverts would willingly let “Don’t Say Gay” DeSantis get within a hundred miles of the presidency? No, the dump Trump to crown Ron is a bait-and-switch con game trolling for suckers. Donald Trump is not going away, and the only thing that will come from the effort to dump him is an expansion of the list of people we know can’t be trusted to defend the Constitution and Truth itself: some because they never stood on principle in the first place and others because they are otherwise good people who nevertheless allowed themselves to be duped into the role of useful idiots, even after having their eyes opened to election fraud, the plandemic and other serious crimes of the elites.
Every virtue-loving American, but especially the latter group being lured into the RINO trap, should remember one essential fact: Donald Trump doesn’t need to win another election to legally and morally deserve a second term in the White House. HE ALREADY EARNED IT IN 2020! The Usurper-in-Chief occupying the Oval Office is a filthy traitor whose every pronouncement is a pack of lies, and whose very presence behind the presidential podium is an act of contempt for the citizens of this country and our Constitution.
America owes Donald Trump a second term in the same way that a government-run impound yard owes a new car to a victim whose own car was stolen while under government protection. Our election system has a legal and moral duty to conduct free and fair elections and to ensure the rightful winner is seated after an honest, objective and transparent review of the votes cast by legally qualified citizens only. That process was hijacked and grossly abused by a vast network of conspirators of both parties, united by a visceral hatred of Trump so intense that it justified in their warped minds the greatest political crime in world history: a literal regime-change coup in the most powerful nation on earth and a cover-up of that crime, which continues to this very day using every possible weapon and tactic in their considerable arsenal. Not even the United States Supreme Court could stand against that conspiracy, as all the many highly meritorious lawsuits were derailed on cynical procedural pretexts – even the ones that reached the Supremes.
And yet, by the sheer persistence of one of the most remarkable men ever born on this earth, that conspiracy – intended as an American version of the Reichstag fire – has been exposed, explained and partially extinguished in the build-up to the 2022 midterms.
Every honest, educated citizen in America knows that Donald Trump won the 2020 election, and by the time he is finally inaugurated in January of 2025, the entire world will know that as well – with all the evidence laid out clearly on the table for all to see, along with a list of those awaiting prosecution to the fullest extent of the law – some of them deserving the death penalty for treason. The MAGA movement in the House of Representatives and throughout the citizenry will pursue that mission with a passion for truth, justice and the American way that would put Superman to shame.
Donald Trump doesn’t have to earn his second term a second time, but he will. Only an act of God telling him not to run, or assassination by the elites, will stop that from happening.
The best thing Ron DeSantis could do to ensure his own future presidency is to stand down in the 2024 race and instead make himself Donald’s Trump’s wingman, showing himself to be the obvious and deserving “heir to the chair” through loyalty and the proactive exportation of Florida policy victories to other conservative states. DeSantis should work the states, while Trump works the feds. DeSantis should state clearly that 2024 belongs to Trump by right and that he will do all in his power to ensure he isn’t cheated again by the uniparty.
Our debt to Donald Trump is far greater than just the seat he already earned. We owe him our eternal gratitude for keeping the Clinton crime family out of the White House. Hillary would have done infinitely more harm to America than the feckless boob Biden has been able to do as Obama’s handicapped avatar. I said back in 2017 that our debt to Trump for that one gift alone would have justified him spending his entire presidency vacationing on the golf course.
But Trump rolled up his sleeves and began shoveling the Augean stables like Hercules, winning many fabulous prizes he presented to us as gifts. The yuuge list of policy accomplishments is a gift that keeps on giving despite Biden’s best efforts. Trump’s exposure of the deep state and all its minions to public scrutiny is a priceless gift, as is his continuing willingness to do bare-knuckle battle with them on our behalf. His healthy governance by example instead of just by theory was deeply inspirational to the entire conservative movement, top-to-bottom. We would never have received the gift of Ron DeSantis, or Glenn Youngkin, or Kari Lake without Trump first busting up the frozen wasteland of patronage politics like an Arctic icebreaker. We never would have seen the grassroots erupt like a wildfire in a meadow in school board meetings across America if not for Trump. We never would have seen the weasel Roberts lose his swing-voter kingship at SCOTUS without Trump.
This list could go on and on. I’m not going to offer the standard platitude about Trump being a flawed man like the rest of us, because he’s NOT like the rest of us. Only Donald Trump could have brought America back from the precipice of Marxist hell in 2016, and only Donald Trump can finish that job. He is absolutely perfect for the task God has assigned to him, warts and all, and America owes him a massive debt. Admitting that and fully backing his campaign (should he choose to climb back on that bronco and not hand the reins to Ron early) is the very least we can do.
Posted inUncategorized|Comments Off on America Owes President Trump a Massive Debt
Today, Nov. 8, 2022, I am publishing the first draft of my book “The Battle for Measure 9: The forgotten true story of how pro-family conservatives (temporarily) WON the LGBT war on civilization in 1992 as told by a firsthand witness.” It is the 30th anniversary of the Measure 9 vote in Oregon and its sister ballot-initiative, Amendment 2 in Colorado. I called that day Black Tuesday because it was also the day Slick Willie Clinton took the White House.
This is the fifth in a series of articles based upon this booklet. My focus today is why we lost that election in Oregon (but won it in Colorado), the single biggest factors being the betrayal of the Oregon Republican Party and the Roman Catholic Church.
The Republican betrayal is epitomized by two infuriating events. First, at the height of the 1992 election season, when it looked like we could actually win despite an astonishing, unprecedented effort to stop us, the chairman of the State GOP, Craig Berkman, did a joint in-person television commercial with his Dem counterpart – the two of them sitting side by side on barstools in a live-to-camera setting – to denounce Measure 9: a grievous stab in the back by the GOP establishment “elites.”
Second, after we retooled Measure 9 and reintroduced it as Measure 13 in the 1993/94 election cycle, we ran it in 26 cities and county local elections, winning all 26 consecutive votes by margins as high as 80%. Then, the GOP-controlled legislature “preempted the field,” declaring that only the state legislature had the power to decide these issues, invalidating all 26 of our wins with the stroke of a pen!
The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) in Oregon committed its own act of betrayal of the pro-family cause in an 11th hour decision NOT to endorse Measure 9 despite its conformity to biblical morality and (until then) the strong support of Catholic believers across the state. This was the decision of then-Archbishop William Levada.
Before I bash Levada and the RCC hierarchy for just cause, let me pause here to state unequivocally that I love my Catholic brethren, whom I consider to be authentic Christians of a legitimate Christian denomination, some of whose doctrines I strongly disagree with. But, because I believe that salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone (Romans 10:9-13), I conclude that believers who honestly share that faith have total liberty in Christ to choose to adhere to Roman Catholicism, or Calvinism or Pentecostalism, or Messianic Judaism or any of the other hundreds of confessions/denominations across the world. No faith confession is free of flaws, which might affect one’s sanctification process, but thankfully flawed doctrines do not invalidate one’s justification (Romans 8:39). I have proudly included faithful Roman Catholics on past governing boards I’ve set up, and count as one of my highest honors being hosted by Cardinal Janis Pujats of Riga, Latvia, to jointly teach a class with him on understanding the history, goals and tactics of the LGBT movement at a Catholic seminary in 2007.
Here is the opening paragraph of Levada’s Wikipedia page as of Nov. 7, 2022:
“William Joseph Levada (June 15, 1936 – September 26, 2019) was an American cardinal of the Catholic Church. From May 2005 until June 2012, he served as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith under Pope Benedict XVI; he was the highest ranking American in the Roman Curia. He was previously the Archbishop of Portland in Oregon from 1986 to 1995, and then Archbishop of San Francisco from 1995 to 2005. While serving as archbishop, he was criticized for covering up sexual abuse by priests within his jurisdiction. Levada was created a cardinal in 2006 by Benedict XVI.”
Reading between the lines from a front-lines culture-war perspective, Levada’s willingness to play ball with the demonic elites on the most pivotal grassroots battle in the LGBT culture war arguably propelled him to the top of the power pyramid. He was rewarded first with transfer to San Francisco – the Shangri-La of homosexual culture – and then succeeded Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict) himself as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – the highest body of moral authority on issues of sexuality in the RCC – despite the cloud of controversy that hung darkly over him in the pederast-priest scandal.
My guess is that Levada was himself a homosexual and one of the key members of the Vatican “gay mafia” Pope John Paul II privately battled and Pope Benedict publicly warned against just before he “resigned” (was deposed) in a transfer of power to “Pope” Francis, which many conservative Catholics contend was a coup orchestrated by Francis and Barack Obama. Yes, I know this sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, but more and more the people of the world are recognizing that many former conspiracy “theories” are actually factual. One important fact to remember is that Levada was the single-most powerful American Catholic during the entire season of the culture war in which LGBT hegemony was imposed on this country while official Catholic opposition to the agenda was muted at best.
I must add here that I think Pope Benedict was a righteous man who attempted to navigate an impossible political quagmire with grace and resolve, but like President Trump in his first term, he did not have actual control of the government under his supposed jurisdiction. The Vatican “deep state” was and is just as corrupt as the American one, and both Benedict and Trump started with just a beachhead, which each significantly enlarged through skill and persistence. But neither ever had full control, and both were removed from office by powerful forces of wickedness. Francis and Biden are the obvious puppets of similar deep state forces whose common denominator is Barack Obama. (Let’s never forget that in 2015 Obama and Francis tag-teamed the launch of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the U.N. – which is the foundation upon which Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum has built the geopolitical machinery for imposing transhumanism and the Great Reset upon the world.)
In any case, I believe the anti-family activism of Berkman and Levada was the political sabotage that killed the Measure 9 campaign in Oregon. We – meaning the larger coalition of pro-family activists using our No Special Rights theme – did, however, win approval of Colorado’s Amendment 2 with a 53% majority. It took a far bigger betrayal at a far higher political level to kill Amendment 2. That was only accomplished by the utterly lawless invalidation of the people’s will by Justice Anthony Kennedy in the Romer v. Evans case. For details about that sordid betrayal of our U.S. Constitution, you’ll have to read the (free) book.
