How We Take America Back
I went to bed last night planning to write this article, and, as I sipped my first coffee of the morning read David Kupelian’s superb summary of the cultural, political and spiritual state we’re in. David is one of the last genuine journalists in America and one of the few writers I envy both for his analytical and writing skills and his productivity. He has again “nailed it” and shown why WND deserves the strongest level of support the constitutionalist remnant in America is capable of providing. We’ll need to zealously protect our supply lines of truthful news coverage and commentary through the emerging season of Maoist “cleansing” and “reeducation,” and WND – which literally pioneered Internet news coverage from a conservative perspective — should be at the top of our priority list.
In my last article I offered 5 Steps for Surviving the Marxist Purge. It outlines a short-term defensive strategy for protecting our community from a tidal wave of leftist wrath and vengeance. My focus today is on the specific actions We the People must take to reclaim cultural dominance and restore the infrastructure of our republic after that wave has begun to subside. Much preparation can be done in the interim.
My plan rests on the powerful truth that even some on the left are beginning to acknowledge as they pivot from their 4-year anti-Trump coup toward the task of destroying the MAGA movement: that Donald Trump did not create “Trumpism” – Trumpism (going all the way back to the Reagan Revolution of the 1980s, and exploding into a global populist counter-insurgency during the poisonous Obama presidency) created him. He will rightfully remain our Commander in Chief, but as we patriots transition to the new reality of being an American version of the French Resistance under the Nazis, we should embrace the greater individual and tribal autonomy, and the greater moral authority and exigency it offers us.
Calls for “unity” (meaning submission to the triumphant Marxist usurpers who have captured the White House and Congress by fraud and violence) are an insult to intelligence and vile mockery of every American who has ever shed blood in the cause of liberty. The second American Revolution has begun, just as the first one began two and half centuries ago, and just as the Christian church began two millennia ago: under aggressive occupation by an evil regime determined to crush us. And even as we must undermine, sabotage and otherwise resist it’s inhuman agenda, we must organize and implement a plan to overthrow and replace it. The Biden/Pelosi/Schumer Nazis and their Vichy boot-lickers in the GOP will call this “sedition,” but a government must first be legitimate before it can claim a right to defend its existence.
My simple plan, detailed below, is the fruit of more than thirty years of Christian social and political activism, including my early years running ballot-measure campaigns and more recently two runs for Governor of Massachusetts, balancing the aspirations of Christianity with the realities of politics, and (just as America’s Founders did) drawing heavily upon the wisdom of the Old Testament (tempered but not invalidated by the New Testament), where most of the Lord’s guidance on dealing with political matters is found.
My political philosophy is called RESET – Run Every Seat, Every Time. It is perfect for the MAGA Movement. We throw out the professional “campaign consultant” playbook, which focuses on public relations and forcing candidates to compromise on their principles to minimize media criticism. We reject turf-protecting efforts by the GOP establishment to push MAGA candidates out of the process on the grounds that “they can’t win” and instead make it our goal to “move the ball down the field as far as possible in every game on every play,” build an army of brave patriots with hands-on experience in campaigning, and educate the electorate on the reasons true constitutionalism is better than Marxism.
It’s a win/win strategy whether we take the seats the first time or not. Starting immediately in the 2021 off-year municipal elections, we send hundreds of willing patriots into the political arena to force the other side to spend money and defend their crazy positions and conduct to the voters, and to maximize our chance to win some races even if it’s just because we’re there when the opponent self-destructs or resigns due to scandals. We make especially sure that every RINO everywhere is primaried every time and that the establishment learns this will be their “new normal” until they surrender to MAGA control.
The plan is this:
1) We focus on organizing our people into a national grassroots network in 2021 and 22 (I’ve started my own model for this called Swamp Rangers) with emphasis on local and state politics.
2) We set our sights on MAGA control of 3/4 of the states, emphasizing the issue of election integrity in every state, and also taking back control of the House of Representatives in 2022, making every race a referendum on election integrity.
3) In 2023 we use our control of the state legislatures to convene a Convention of States per Article 5, Option 2, to strip the federal government of powers we did not delegate to it, restore the parts of the constitution that the left has neutralized over the past century, add new amendments for a balanced budget, term limits and election integrity, and strip the Supreme Court of power to thwart the will of We the People as established by this convention.
4). With constitutional originalism and limitations on federal power restored, we take back the Congress and the Presidency in 2024.
The centerpiece of this plan is the Article 5 Convention of States, which conservatives should not confuse with the “runaway Constitutional Convention of 1787″ when this nation was called the “Confederation of States,” not the “United States.” No Article 5 Convention of States has ever been held, but the option can be assumed to be a safe process since it was deliberately adopted by the Founders in 1789 as a part of the brand new United States Constitution, which was written by the Founders specifically to fix the problems raised in and by 1787 event when those problems were still fresh in their minds.
Now that the entire federal government has been hijacked by the left, the genius of the founders in including a Convention of States in Article 5 is now made clear. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist 85, it’s purpose was to provide a mechanism to “erect barriers against the encroachments of the national authority.” The Marxists now have absolute top-down authority that will be impossible to break by traditional means. But the Founders gave us a back-door to solve this very problem. My plan is to use it to the fullest to restore citizen controls from the bottom up.
(This article has been corrected based upon a reader comment pointing out the distinction between the oft-condemned Constitutional Convention or “ConCon” of 1787 and the “Convention of States” option of Article 5, which has never been used since the adoption of the United States Constitution in 1789.)
Our Red Pill Reality in 2020 Hindsight
The Matrix movie has spawned many a political meme on the choice of staying comfortably asleep in a fantasy world where one enjoys free agency and a meaningful role in shaping the future, or awakening to the cruel reality of being an expendable slave to the agenda of a machine designed to control one’s every thought and action. In the film, the protagonist, Neo, is rudely awakened to reality by members of a resistance movement who have broken free from the machine, and, in a meeting with their leader Morpheus, is given the choice to remain free by taking a red pill, or to return to the fantasy dream-state by taking a blue pill. He takes the red pill, and the fight for good (liberty) vs evil (slavery) begins.
Over the past four years, We The People have been Neo, and Donald Trump has been our Morpheus. The MAGA movement chose the red pill. The Dems, Never Trumpers and RINOs chose the blue pill. Today the battle rages on between the MAGA Deplorables and the Machine, but with Morpheus seemingly defeated, and only vaporous QAnon rumors, or the miraculous intervention of God, left to base our hopes for a restored America upon, our collective grasp of reality is being shaken by the Machine’s power to conform human perception to its narratives. Who can we trust and how can know what is real?
I had written and submitted a very different version of this column last night, but this morning I read Joseph Farah’s critically important piece “The night of long knives – tech-style” and I’m rewriting my column in support and in response to it. Please take a moment to read his before you continue with mine.
This election was, as we continuously reminded each other, a winner-take-all battle for control of the nation between hyper-polarized partisans. A post-election purge of the losers was inevitable and we would be happy about it if the purge was removing Marxists from power. However, if we were doing the purging our standards would be truth-based and our tactics honorable and proportionate. Not so with the left. Truth does not matter to the left, only the narratives. And their leaders are by nature malicious, often sadistic people who excel at what Hillary (cynically posing as a victim) called “the politics of personal destruction.” Trust me, I’ve been through their meat grinder. This is going to get really ugly, really fast and last for a long time.
From here on, under their new relentlessly-repeated revisionist narrative, Trump will be the American Hitler and every Deplorable a White Supremacist. In their minds, and to the Blue Pill Public, this will justify their every action against conservative speech, thought, symbol, organization and person. The reprehensible rhetoric and tactics of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) hate-group will become public policy. BE WARNED: especially in the early stage, any militant bluster or bravado from Trump supports will be characterized as hate-speech and/or sedition. Marxist Brownshirts will look eagerly for people to make examples of. If you doubt me, just ask Adolfo Martinez who is serving sixteen years in prison for the unforgivable crime of burning a “gay pride” flag.
How can the MAGA movement not just survive the purge but emerge from it stronger when it finally wanes? Use your 20/20 hindsight and consider what you would do if you were a Russian Christian during the Bolshevik takeover of 1917.
1) The most important action constitutionalists can take right now is to fully document what really happened over the past four years. The fatal flaws in the Marxist plans are their lies about the election fraud and all of the other dirty tricks and tactics they orchestrated to take down Trump. The left will soon begin to purge the evidence from the public record, so TODAY start getting downloads and screen-shots of everything! Load all digital documentation on off-the-grid external hard drives and store them in EMP-proof containers. Make paper copies of the most important items. If you have skills, create media to disseminate the truth, from one-page bullet-point flyers to feature-length documentary films. If you lack those skills, volunteer in the projects of others.
2) Go low-tech at least part-time from now on. Get a land-line telephone as a back-up communications method. Export all of your electronically-stored data and print it out, especially your contact information with fellow constitutionalists, and start keeping hard-copy paper back-ups of everything important to you. Get back to using the US Postal Service for some of your correspondence so it doesn’t go bankrupt and deprive us of the only truly confidential communications method we have. Start using paper currency more often to counteract the push toward a cash-less society. Start thinking about bartering among your friends and family.
3) Go Natural. Start categorizing the things in your life as either natural or artificial, and adopt the general rule of preferring the natural. The most artificial thing in our lives is the virtual world which the elites want to replace the natural in all things because, as we’re beginning to experience, they can exercise total control over everything in it. It IS the Matrix! As a starting point for breaking free, I offer you my Declaration of the Natural Life Movement (a red pill).
4) Go Underground. In 2019 the Holy Spirit began prompting me to begin preparing to establish a network of “underground” Christian believers and congregations, in the expectation that this final generation leading to the return of Christ would face circumstances similar to what the Christians of the first century endured. I formally launched First Century Bible Church in March of 2020. I believe the current Marxist purge of MAGA members will include the persecution of Christians, and I urge Remnant believers to act accordingly. If you agree, and can accept our model of unity in the essentials, tolerance in all else, you are invited to join or affiliate with FCBC.
5) Join Swamp Rangers. If there remains any chance of saving America (in whole or in part) from Marxist hell, that can only happen from the bottom up through the actions of grass-roots constitutionalists. I formed Swamp Rangers as a ministry of First Century Bible Church to build a national grass-roots network and maximize our combined influence. We officially launched on January 1st and are now accepting members.
Come what may, never give up the fight for truth and liberty! But choose your battles, and your allies, very carefully.
Obama, John Roberts and the Mystery of Lawlessness
It was recently (falsely) reported that in a closed-door meeting of the nine justices of the Supreme Court about the Texas lawsuit against election fraud, Chief Justice John Roberts was heard screaming profanities about President Trump and refusing to consider the Trump-favoring precedent of Bush v Gore as he browbeat the group into rejecting the case. His justification, as supposedly overheard by a whistle-blowing staffer in the outer room, was that the Bush v Gore contest was not attended by rioting, while this one is. While this story was factually false, it rings true emotionally, and as a theory about John Roberts psychological profile seems highly plausible – enough so that (this, now revised) article I wrote while thinking it was true should still be published.
When I first heard the story two thoughts immediately came to my mind. First was a reminder of Benjamin Franklin’s famous axiom “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” The second was that our Supreme Court was granting a “heckler’s veto” of the US Constitution itself to Antifa Fascists, and even the strongest conservatives on the court were willing to allow it, with only tepid dissent from our anchor-men, Thomas and Alito. These are valid reactions regardless of the court’s motives.
Then, when I learned (the factually true report) that attorney Lin Wood was calling for Roberts’ resignation and suggesting that the Chief Justice was thee “John Roberts” seen on uber-pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Orgy Island in the company of Bill Clinton, the mystery of Roberts’ history suddenly made sense.
I remembered how Roberts flubbed the administration of Barack Obama’s oath of office (which I believe was intentional so that the Anti-Christian, self-admitted Muslim Obama could retake the formal oath the next day minus the Bible). I remember how Roberts contorted himself into a pretzel to save Obamacare with an obviously fabricated pretext, and all the subsequent court rulings where he sided with the liberals amidst constant rumoring that Obama must have something on him.
As I contemplated this relative to the four-year anti-Trump rolling coup – in which all the key players have been increasingly exposed for their links to home-grown Marxism and/or allegiance to the Chinese Communist Party – I was reminded of the Biblical prophecy of Hebrews 12:18-29 often paraphrased “everything than can be shaken will be shaken.” That describes today’s emerging civil war between patriotic Constitutionalists, and a vast web of criminal co-conspirators infesting our key institutions (led, I believe, by Obama). As the MAGA movement gathers on the battlefield for a final showdown of good and evil that will decide the fate of America, everything that can be shaken is being shaken.
There are striking parallels between these current events, and the prophecy of 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.
“1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…we ask you, 2not to be soon shaken in mind…as if…the day of Christ had come. 3Let no one deceive you…for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed…who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed…9The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
In 1947 the US Supreme Court did in fact set itself “above all that is called God or that is worshiped” in the case of Everson v Board of Education, by making itself arbiter over the claims of all religions and requiring government to treat them all equally. That ended America’s legal status as “one nation under God” and replaced it with Secular Humanism (the religion of Marxism). In June, 1961, the same “swing Justice” Hugo Black wrote the majority opinion in Torcaso v Watkins defining Atheism as a religion equal to belief in God, empowering the Marxists to use the “equal protection” clause to purge Christianity from public life (staring with school prayer in ‘63). Importantly, this occurred between May 1945 and August 1961 while the United States (the dominant Allied power), had defacto legal possession of the Pergamum Altar (the literal “Seat of Satan” of Revelation 2) in conquered Germany, until the Berlin Wall made it the property of the Soviet Union.
Since then the “mystery of lawlessness” in America has so fully matured that “unrighteous deception” has ensnared millions of Americans in a “strong delusion.” And the total conquest of our nation by the agents of the Father of Lies (John 8:44) is prevented only by “He who now restrains…until He is taken out of the way.” That’s unarguably Trump in today’s political context, even if the prophecy means something else. And IF Trump (the last political barrier to the Marxist plot to “fundamentally transform America”) is taken out of the way, who do we all then expect to emerge as the mastermind of the campaign of lawlessness? Obama! Whom many (including me) have named an Antichrist if not necessarily thee Antichrist of 2 Thessalonians 2.
Have you been asking yourself how it is possible that so many people in power can be this corrupt? That is the “mystery of lawlessness.” Have you been tempted to deny the obvious conspiracy-in-fact of the elites and dismiss it as a “conspiracy ‘theory’ ” because you want so much for it not to be true? That is the lure of “unrighteous (self) deception” you MUST overcome. Have you noticed how so many people we thought were Christians seem to have lost their Biblical worldview? That is the “falling away” which results from surrendering to the deceivers.
Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. In the midst of this we should hold fast to a strong HOPE that God will extend our reprieve by keeping Donald Trump in office (the battle is still far from over), but more importantly, we should be sure that our FAITH in Christ remains unshakeable, regardless of which way this goes.
Contrary to Christmas holiday tradition, Jesus Himself said in Matthew 10:34 “Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” The notion that Jesus came to establish world peace (prior to the Millennial Kingdom) is actually a misrepresentation of the Christmas story as told in Luke. What the Angel of God actually said upon the birth of Jesus was this: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!” (emphasis mine). The final phrase is a qualifier, like the conditional promise of Romans 8:28 that He will make all things work to the good of those (and only those) who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Only men and women on whom God’s favor rests deserve peace. And until He returns to establish the thousand year Sabbath “Day” on earth (the Millennial Kingdom) there will and must be conflict between those on whom His favor rests and those who defy Him.
This conflict exists for the benefit of the lost, since the Devil wants them to be comfortable, lazy and apathetic in spiritual matters because they belong to him by right under the curse of Adam, and will remain his Hell-bound slaves unless they repent and voluntarily accept the free gift of salvation in Christ per John 3:18 (although my Calvinist friends might have trouble with the word “voluntarily” in that sentence, and my Orthodox Jewish friends might defer to their deadline which our Christian Bible sets in Romans 11 — the close of the “age of the Gentiles”). It is only when the lost are confronted with the reality that God created humanity for His plan and purpose — that it becomes possible for the scales to fall from their eyes allowing them to see and understand TRUTH.
Only the enlightened can recognize the great cyclical tumult of human history, waxing and waning from season to season and from valley to mountaintop, as one continuous dramatic performance of His Story: a riveting interactive spectacle which commands our attention and forces us to take sides in the ceaseless battle of good and evil; a non-stop 4-D movie in which we all are both audience and actors in the glorious theater of His Creation, which groans in anticipation of the crescendo toward which it builds: the soon return of the Messiah.
We are exhorted to “contend earnestly for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:7), and commanded by Jesus both to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) and to “occupy until I come” (Luke 19:13).
In my theology of “Whole Bible Christianity,” all the teachings and resources of the Old Testament (tempered by the New Testament in matters of church life and personal morality) serve the Cause of Christ today, and impose a duty upon us to be active stewards of ALL spheres of society — including the social, political, commercial and cultural.
To that end I established First Century Bible Church early in 2020 as a non 501(c)(3) fellowship of individuals and affiliated congregations around the world, united on the essentials of the faith, with tolerance in non-essentials. (In short our essentials are the Revised Nicene Creed of 381, plus the behavioral essentials of Biblical marriage and sexuality without which our self-perpetuating ethics-based human civilization — founded upon God’s covenant with Abraham — is impossible.)
In November 2020, under the spiritual covering of First Century Bible Church, I created “Swamp Rangers: a citizen network for swamp creature pest control” using a strategic satirical theme as a cover for serious cultural/political engagement I call “campy but cunning constitutionalism.”
To many, this concept of church-originated cultural/political engagement without an overt evangelistic theme and tone is unfathomable. But to such people the rise of a Christian rebellion against tyrannical British occupation, under the self-proclaimed legal authority of a “Declaration of Independence,” would have seemed equally mystifying and “un-Christian” had they lived then. But, thankfully, the Founders were Whole Bible Christians, or else this constitutional republic whose Christian works have blessed the world beyond measure (until the Marxist take-over in the 20th Century) would never have been formed.
I ormed Swamp Rangers as a Christian pastor confident in my authority to fight under the banner of Christ for the preservation of this God-blessed Republic and the (indirectly) Bible-based Constitution on which it stands, through an organization that is not overtly evangelical any more than the Continental Army was. As a modern member of the Black Robed Regiment I do not hesitate to fight on a secular battlefield for victories in this world that produce major but largely unseen parallel spiritual victories, just as the forming of this nation did.
Importantly, the presence of clergy (the “Black Robes”) in the fight against the British provided succor and encouragement to the believers in the mixed Christian and non-Christian Continental Army, but they also provided a bridge to salvation for the many non-believers who accepted Christ specifically because they came to trust the Black Robes whom they saw put feet to their faith in a cause they all were willing to die for — rather than just spouting lofty spiritual rhetoric from the safety of church sanctuaries.
I will never give up trying to disciple the weak-of-faith majority in today’s American churches, and to evangelize the deceived-unsaved pew-sitters among them. But having labored in that fruitless field for decades with so little return, and often been scorned by its feckless shepherds, I am elated and energized to have discovered a brand-new mission field in the MAGA Movement: millions of secular but patriotic children and grandchildren of overtly Christian households, who themselves might never or rarely been “to church” but who generally respect God and agree that American greatness is somehow associated with her Christian heritage. These, along with the Christian Conservatives (the remnant) who make up the other half of the Trump base, will be recruited by Swamp Rangers — and by the lifestyle example of Whole Bible Christians in this network — I expect many will be saved.

One of the most troubling questions about our very near future as Americans is whether our state and/or federal governments will mandate a Covid 19 vaccine – either by a clear government dictate like the lockdown policies, or by coercive measures in cooperation with leftist-controlled private companies to make refusal to “voluntarily” vaccinate so onerous as to force compliance.
The prospect is all the more troubling given what we already know about vaccine puppet-master Bill Gates’ Malthusian agenda and its vaccine-based biometric tagging of human beings for tracking purposes, the well established greed and untrustworthiness of “Big Pharma,” the reports of fetal remains being used in the vaccine creation process and perhaps in the vaccines themselves, the emerging utopian (dystopian) “Great Reset” plans of the global elites, and the horror stories of proven Covid-19 side-effects from the initial human trials.
Compounding our anxieties in this matter is the massive cover-up of data on Covid 19 death rates, the truth of which (were it known by the general public) would largely neutralize the fear-based motivation and justification for the vaccine. One need only consider that even the highest-risk category of Americans (those over 70 years old) have a 99.5% survival rate, and that the total death rate of the nation (from all causes) in 2020 is statistically no higher than prior years. This disease is not only not a modern version of the bubonic plague, but is far, far less lethal for children and young people than the flu, and in terms of overall public health has done virtually nothing but shift the body counts of dead people from, for example, the “heart disease” and “pneumonia” columns to the “Covid 19″ column in the data-reporting process. And, increasingly, to the “suicide” column, now inflated due to incessant soul-draining media fear-mongering to emotionally-vulnerable lockdown victims.
Trump has pledged Not to mandate the vaccine, but you can assume Biden will, regardless of what he says now, if the ongoing coup d’etat of the Purple Revolution steals the presidency for him.
I am not opposed to vaccines, per se, but as a Christian and a constitutionalist I am strongly opposed to government health mandates of any kind that purport to supercede my sovereign right under God to the control of my own body. It is my choice whether to seek or accept any health remedy or procedure regardless of the opinion of government officials. This right is also implicit in the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution, with very limited exceptions for things such as taking blood or DNA samples from criminal suspects against their will.
More importantly, personal bodily sovereignty is a core Biblical tenet, and therefore, as a Christian attorney and the founding pastor of First Century Bible Church, I have drafted a policy against vaccine mandates and posted it on our church website as our official doctrine.
There is no guarantee that our judiciary will honor our demand for religious accommodation in refusing to comply with a vaccine mandate – if and when that contest comes. However, if you intend to take that stand, it will be far better for you if you have proof of a sincerely held religious belief against vaccine mandates that can be documented.
Therefore, I invite you to adopt our doctrinal statement on the matter, and to register as having done so on our website. Here is an excerpt:
“Declaration and Doctrine of First Century Bible Church
on Government Health Mandates Including Vaccines
“First Century Bible Church’s policy on governmental mandatory edicts rests upon two
pillars as its foundation: The Bible as the inerrant Word of God, and America’s Bible-based founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, both of which honor the liberty of individuals to pursue their own happiness subject to the revealed guidance of God and, among other things, to determine for themselves what, if any, health measures they wish to pursue.
“Our Church believes in the absolute sovereignty of God in all things, and His delegation
of authority to human beings over the control of their own minds and bodies (Colossians
1:16–17; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20). We believe we possess both the God-given ability to
reason and the gift of free will to make our own choices regarding our lives, inclusive of
our health and well-being, and that individuals should be the ones to make their own
decisions pertaining to any and all medical services and medications, including all
decisions regarding vaccines no matter what conditions—including pandemics—may be
“The choice to use or accept any forms of external intervention to address any mental or physical health problem remains a sacred personal right, notwithstanding the opinion of other people, including medical professionals and government officials. Regarding the question of Covid 19 vaccines and other emerging medical technologies, we hold that the use of any product containing or derived from the remains of unborn babies terminated by abortion is absolutely forbidden and that knowingly accepting such a product into one’s body is to become an accessory to murder, subject to the full force of Biblical law (Proverbs 28:17; 1 Samuel 3:13).
“Furthermore, any medical product designed to alter one’s genetic code or to create a
“biometric” or comparable mark or other identifier by which one can be tracked by
government or its agents is also absolutely forbidden as a surrender to idolatry. If such
mark is not technically the Mark of the Beast warned against in Scripture, it is so close in
form and substance as to be at least preliminary preparation for it, if not a binding
spiritual substitute (Revelation 19:20; 1 Corinthians 8:4-7)… End excerpt.
The remainder of this one-page document may be reviewed at the home page of First Century Bible Church, along with options for adopting the declaration as your own doctrinal position individually, as a family, or as a congregation of any size. https://www.scottlively.net/first-century-ministries-first-century-bible-church-2/first-century-bible-church-2/
Again, there is no guarantee that government will respect your personal sovereignty in the matter of vaccines but your strongest basis for non-compliance will almost certainly be your sincerely held religious belief. My purpose is to help you define that belief and prove you have formally adopted it for yourself.

Trump Should Not Surrender the White House
If not for the surreal, unprecedented “Big Lie” conspiracy of the elites who monopolize our public information systems (Big Media and Big Tech) – and who dominate the top strata of our institutions, including the courts and intelligence agencies — all fair-minded Americans would agree that the 2020 election was irredeemably corrupted by fraud. The overwhelming preponderance of the evidence on the Trump side is matched only by the intensity of the criminal suppression of it by the anti-Trump side. Now even President Trump is admitting that it may be impossible to get his case to the Supreme Court for vindication of his election night victory through a full disclosure and review of that evidence by the constitutionalist majority of justices.
IF that turns out to be the case, and the elites have so thoroughly solidified control over the legal and political mechanisms which the Founders established for us, it will mean that they have broken the US Constitution itself. They will have accomplished what none of us believed possible – a coup d’ etat by means of the Purple Revolution, which is the domestic version of the color revolutions by which the globalist left and our CIA have overthrown governments across the globe. I have been writing about this Purple Revolution since before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
Now we know why Pelosi and the other narrative-setters of the Purple Revolution began injecting the then-mystifying accusation (without a shred of evidence) that Trump might refuse to vacate the White House on January 20th. They expected to be able to block Trump from getting his case to SCOTUS, and to be able to gaslight such a huge portion of the electorate with the “no evidence of fraud” Big Lie that we would accept their theft of the presidency as “constitutional,” and acquiesce to a “peaceful transition of power.”
I still believe SCOTUS will get the case and rescue the nation from the Marxists. And I believe the fall-back contingency of presidential electors being chosen by the state legislatures is a second path to preserving the republic.
However, if these last constitutional barriers to the overthrow of the United States are defeated by the globalists, there is only one remaining option for the free and just America our founders bequeathed to us to survive: a declaration of national emergency by President Trump to allow him to remain in office long enough for a new election to be conducted by means guaranteed to ensure its fairness, with every step of the process except the secret ballot casting itself being done under full public scrutiny and recorded on video.
It is essential to recognize in the face of this existential election fraud crisis, that the US Constitution is not the deepest foundation of our country. The bedrock on which the constitution was constructed is the Declaration of Independence. It is in that document that we find the remedy for curing the Marxist cancer that has put America on her death-bed.
Having been a front-lines culture war activist for more than three decades of America’s incremental take-over – fighting a rearguard action against same leftist elements now arrayed against Trump (with many deep battle scars to prove it) – I perceived that the trajectory of the Purple Revolution would likely bring us to this precipice. Therefore, on November 17th, 2016, I specifically predicted exactly what would and has now transpired:
“1) An army of faceless anarchists engaged in civil disobedience and property destruction on an “anti-fascism” theme (imagine the explosion of street violence in the late 1960s but employing “social justice” rather than anti-war rhetoric – like Black Lives Matter but bigger and broader). This is designed to terrorize the public but also to deliberately provoke police reactions that can be documented on film and edited to misrepresent the police as Brownshirt-style fascists.
2) A coordinated propaganda campaign by all the usual suspects on the left in media, academia, Hollywood, and the non-profit/foundations sector, branding the Trump administration as a fascist regime akin to the Third Reich. This will build slowly but inexorably as the left gathers and weaves together its case like a crooked prosecutor in the courtroom of international opinion.
3) Obstruction of conservative policy through guerrilla litigation tactics by groups such as the Center for Constitutional Rights and Southern Poverty Law Center, and their silent partners in the federal judiciary.”
I outlined a broad-brush counter-strategy in that article as well that remains timely. But on January 7th, 2020, after my predictions had come true and cracks had begun to show in the foundation-stones of the constitution, I foresaw the potential need for a more legally-oriented proto-constitutional remedy grounded in the Declaration of Independence, specifically this clause:
“governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…[thus] whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government.”
I drafted a “Declaration of Restoration” that frames the legal path forward. My prescription then and now is invoke this law to alter, not abolish, our government, by the use of the emergency powers of the president to impose necessary election reforms through a new presidential election with just two sections – 1) a re-vote for President and all down-ticket races and 2) a binding referendum question allowing voters to affirm or reject the reform package as a guarantee of election integrity in all future elections.
Hillary Clinton pronounced on August 25th, 2020 that Joe Biden should not concede the election under any circumstances. In retrospect, I believe she was baiting a trap for conservatives to jump on her with both feet and thus preemptively neuter any argument from our side that Trump should not concede. I never took that bait, and I’m saying loud and clear right now, that Donald Trump should not vacate the White House unless he does so because he agrees he legitimately lost the election and was not cheated out of it through election fraud.
If he knows the election was fraudulent and he really did win, he has a legal and moral duty to preserve the republic by implementing an election do-over.
Published 10/14/2007 in St. Petersburg, Russian at the end of my 50-city speaking tour through eight countries of the former Soviet Union, and which I believe was instrumental in the ban on “gay” propaganda to children that was adopted first in St. Petersburg a couple of years later, then by several other cities, and then passed unanimously by the Russian national Duma (Congress) June 30, 2013.
I am Dr. Scott Lively, President of Defend the Family International, a human-rights organization based near Los Angeles, California. I hold a Juris Doctor of Law from Trinity Law School, a Doctor of Theology from the School of Bible Theology (both of which schools are in California), and a certificate in human rights from the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France. I am the author of the Riga Declaration on Religious Freedom, Family Values and Human Rights, and several books, including The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, which is currently being translated into Russian for publication in 2008.
I have just completed a speaking tour through your beautiful country and have come to love your culture and your people. I had the privilege of visiting numerous Russian Cities, from Vladivistok and Blagoveschensk in the Far East, to several cities in Siberia, and St. Petersburg in the West. I’ve been impressed by how much Russians are like Americans in many ways: both are intelligent, resourceful, competitive and entrepreneurial. These similarities are both good and bad. They are good in that our nations have a foundation for friendship, but they are bad in that they make Russia vulnerable to the same destructive forces that have harmed America.
The purpose of my visit was to bring a warning about the homosexual political movement which has done much damage to my country and which has now taken root in Russia. This is a very fast-growing social cancer that will destroy the family foundations of your society if you do not take immediate, effective action to stop it.
Homosexuality is a personality disorder that involves various, often dangerous sexual addictions and aggressive, anti-social impulses. This combination of factors causes homosexuals to have an intense loyalty to each other and a common goal to change any society in which they live in organized “gay and lesbian” communities. They have no acceptance in a society that restricts sex to heterosexual marriage, so they work to eliminate sexual morality and remove all limitations on sexual conduct. Importantly, their initial strategy is not promote homosexuality, but to spread sexual immorality among heterosexuals, especially the young people. Only later, when the culture has become sexually corrupt, do they openly step forward to take power as the natural leaders of such a society.
The process of change always begins with the institutions which shape the thinking and behavior of young people. First comes the promotion of sexual promiscuity through mass media, then the introduction of high-profile “gay” celebrities such as Elton John and George Michael, then the development of “gay” political cells in the universities.
It is no accident that Hollywood promotes sexual immorality. The American entertainment media is heavily influenced, in some cases controlled, by professional homosexual activists who use television, movies and music as a tool of social engineering. Russian youths are being shaped in this way, just as American youths were, beginning in the late 1950s. However, the now wealthy and powerful global homosexual movement has perfected its tactics and can transform a society very rapidly.
Some Russian universities, especially in the larger cities, now have “gay and lesbian” clubs. Remember that their focus is always on the young people. The homosexuals know they can’t change the values of the older people, but that young people, especially those who are sexually active or cohabiting, are easily persuaded to accept homosexuality as just another lifestyle. In fact, many young people become active defenders of homosexuality, because the “gay” movement portrays all homosexuals as helpless victims of societies who “just want to be left alone to love whom they please.” The universities serve as recruitment centers for both homosexuals and their heterosexual allies and protectors.
The homosexual movement tries to win public sympathy by claiming that homosexuals are “born that way” and cannot change. This is not true. There is a large association of doctors and therapists in the United States who help homosexuals to recover (see www.narth.com) and many thousands of former homosexuals who now live normal lives. But unfortunately, there is an even larger network of homosexual activists and their allies (backed by the full power of the European Union, some US agencies and institutions, and numerous international NGOs), who insist that homosexuality is unchangeable and must be protected by government. Their goal is to pass a law prohibiting discrimination against homosexuals, which then serves as a legal foundation for the rest of their agenda: publicly funded and protected “gay pride” parades in every city, homosexual marriage or its equivalent, promotion of homosexuality to schoolchildren, full acceptance of homosexuality in every part of society, and punishment of people who disagree.
Unfortunately, many Russians believe this could never happen in their country. That’s what we believed in the United States. But the change has already begun in Russia. Just talk to the university students in the major cities, or search on the Internet for “gay” activities in your own city. There was a “gay pride” parade this August in Omsk, the Novosibirsk newspapers are now printing “gay” dating ads, there are at least three “gay” Internet sites for teenagers in Krosnoyarsk, and Saint Petersburg already has a large population of homosexual men who meet for sex in certain public parks. These examples may seem like a small threat considering the strong opposition to homosexuality in most of Russian society, but I beg you not to ignore these warning signs. They are like the smoke from a forest fire. If you wait until you can see the flames from your own house it will be too late.
What can be done to protect Russia from the “gay” movement?
First, begin an immediate campaign in every city to promote marriage and family values, and to discourage sexual promiscuity and cohabitation. Young people at every grade level should receive age-appropriate instruction on why sexual morality and family values are important to their future, and older students should learn how to prepare to be a good husband or wife. Every city should offer marriage seminars and counseling to help strengthen existing families. Cities should celebrate family life and offer many pro-family programs and activities.
Second, begin training doctors, psychologists and therapists in the techniques of helping homosexuals to recover, and offer this therapy as a public service. Promote recovery for homosexuals in public advertising and reach out to young people who may suffer from same-sex attraction. Catch it early and spare these youths a lifetime of pain and suffering. Importantly, if Russian authorities publicly promote recovery for homosexuals, the “gays” will not be able to deceive the public with their “born the way” propaganda.
Third, criminalize the public advocacy of homosexuality. My philosophy is to leave homosexuals alone if they keep their lifestyle private, and not to force them into therapy if they don’t want it. However, homosexuality is destructive to individuals and to society and it should never publicly promoted. The easiest way to discourage “gay pride” parades and other homosexual advocacy is to make such activity illegal in the interest of public health and morality.
Fourth, develop family-friendly media alternatives to the immoral products now being imported from the U.S. and Europe. Russian society is rich with talented people. Russian media companies should become competitors for the hearts and minds of the young people, and even set the example for how to produce good quality entertainment that uplifts, not degrades, the human spirit.
It is no secret that the Russian Federation is in competition with the nations of the West, but there is one area in which Russia could quickly take global leadership: family values. While the United States and Europe continue to alienate their family-oriented citizens by following the destructive path of “sexual freedom,” Russia could become a model pro-family society. If this were to occur, I believe people from the West would begin to emigrate to Russia in the same way that Russians used to emigrate to the United States and Europe. Russia might even win back the sympathies of its former states, such as Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, which are now chafing under the pro-homosexual demands of the European Union.
In conclusion, all successful civilizations rest on the foundation of the natural family: men and women united in marriage, devoted to bearing and raising morally healthy children who will replace them in the next generation. This foundation will always be strong in nations which discourage sexual conduct outside of marriage. But wherever the “gay” philosophy of unlimited sexual freedom is accepted, the family structure disintegrates. The Russian people have an important choice before them: to promote marriage and family values, leading to social health or to allow the spread of sexual immorality, leading to social disorder. I pray you will choose the family.
It’s time to change this…

Swamp Rangers Draft Policy on Private Lifestyles
Only Agents of Chaos Push “LGBT”
Civilized People Say “MYOB”*
Just as the Marxists use “Critical Race Theory” and false accusations of “systemic racism” to sow division and promote racial conflict, they use “Queer Theory” and “sexual orientation” rhetoric to sow confusion about sexuality and destabilize the delicate social balance of freedom and privacy in sexual matters.
A healthy society preserves the primacy of the natural family while tolerating discrete sub-cultures. But forcibly mainstreaming those lifestyles breeds chaos, which is why they do it.
Indeed, preeminent “Cultural Marxism” pioneer Herbert Marcuse called “The repressive order of procreative sexuality” the chief barrier to Marxist Utopia, and prescribed the “disintegration of… the monogamic and patriarchal family” as the remedy.
Only “useful idiots” cooperate in the the disintegration of their own civilization.
Therefore, we call upon all Americans to stop legitimizing Queer Theory’s “sexual orientation” strategy with its false hetero/homo equivalencies and its evil invention of “homophobia” to demonize reasonable dissent. And to never let that diabolical slur go unchallenged.
Instead, we should all respect the right and duty of privacy. We won’t ask, if you don’t tell, because a truly private lifestyle is between you and God, but a public stance on any issue affects everyone.
Let us all work to restore a public/private balance in sexual lifestyle matters that exclusively mainstreams natural family norms for our collective social good.
*Truly conservative people who struggle with same-sex attraction disorder or gender identity issues promote MYOB (Mind Your Own Business) instead of “LGBT” when “progressives” demand they embrace “Queer Theory.”
