The Third Temple and the Third World War

I will bring [foreigners] to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on My altar, for My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations” (Isaiah 56:7).

On Jan. 24, the recently restored political cat-with-nine-lives, Bibi Netanyahu, prime minister of Israel, made a sudden surprise trip to Jordan to meet with King Abdullah II on a matter of great urgency. His mission was to reassure the Muslim king that the newly seated Orthodox Jewish/nationalist majority now controlling Israel would not be allowed to disrupt the status quo on the Temple Mount. That status quo consists of virtually absolute Muslim control of the Temple Mount, preserved by Jewish law enforcement, which aggressively suppress’ Jewish activity there to prevent, literally, World War III. The entire heavily militarized Muslim world has been at DEFCON 3 since the Jews captured the entirety of Jerusalem in the 1967 war, and much of that world instantly kicks up to DEFCON 2 at the merest hint of Jewish political/religious encroachment on any part of East Jerusalem, but especially the Temple Mount.

As a pro-Israel Christian conservative with an eye toward both prophecy and the culture war, I have been amused by the widespread state of panic in the “mainstream” media who universally condemn the new Israeli leadership as “Israel’s most right-wing and religiously conservative government in history,” but who now are trapped into vesting their previous punching-bag Netanyahu with legitimacy in the hope he can and will restrain the Orthodox Jews from fulfilling what they view as a mandate from God to rebuild His Temple. Good luck with that. While Netanyahu seems to be more of a globalist than a populist in some things, like the COVID-19 plandemic, he is unquestionably a Jewish nationalist with a vision for Jewish control of the entirety of the lands they owned in antiquity (at least) and perhaps even to the wider boundaries God established in Genesis. Indeed, the left hates him for pursuing Jewish settlement of the “West Bank” instead of ceding it to the “Palestinians” (aka Jordanians).

I’ve been privileged to visit Israel four times, most recently leading a church tour group from Southern California, and have been on the Temple Mount three times. On our first visit, my wife and I descended to the “off limits” East Gate made impassable with cinder blocks and many rows of graves outside the wall (whose religious “uncleanness” is intended in the logic of Muslim theology to prevent the Judeo-Christian Messiah from entering). It had been temporarily unguarded, but minutes later we got chased off by an angry Muslim guard with a sub-machine gun. On our third visit, I took another risk and accepted the invitation of an unofficial Muslim “guide” to tour the Al Aqsa Mosque (for a fee) which amounted to being escorted down the side of the building to observe the interior through open-air windows where hundreds of men were zealously performing their ritual prayers. Never in my visits to the Temple Mount did I see any overtly Jewish activity or obvious presence at all.

On two occasions, Anne and I also visited the Temple Institute, whose sole purpose is to build and equip the Third Temple. Their preparations are now complete: including the recreation of all the implements and artifacts prescribed by the Bible as well as the altar, the genetic identification and training of the Levitical priests in the Temple rituals, and even the acquisition and verification of the Red Heifer whose ashes are necessary for the final purification of the high priest. “On Thursday, Sept. 15, 2022, at 5 p.m., five perfect, unblemished red heifers arrived in Israel from the USA,” reads a statement on the homepage of the group’s website. All that remains is the building of the Third Temple itself.

In my perspective (and I’ve followed this issue very closely from outside the controlled-media bubble), the path to the Third Temple begins in Ukraine, where the U.S. and U.K. deliberately orchestrated the Russian invasion through relentless provocation in the form of creeping nuclear encirclement by NATO, culminating in the 2021/22 massing of forces on the Donbass border to finally crush the pro-Russian separatists there and eliminate Russia’s security buffer zone. The “unprovoked” mantra of the lying media regarding Russia is just more deceptive spin by the “OBiden” criminal cartel, as more and more Christians and conservatives are finally beginning to realize. Accepting this hard truth in the face of intense non-stop war-propaganda is key to recognizing just how deep the criminal conspiracy runs.

The U.S./U.K. goals and justifications for provoking the war are numerous: from preventing a super-powerful Russian/German economic partnership from arising outside U.S./U.K. control (greatly facilitated by the Nord Stream pipelines), to covering-up the U.S. Uniparty criminal operations in Ukraine (including both billions in graft and the totally illegal bio-weapons labs), to the punishment of Putin and Russia for defying Obama’s global LGBT juggernaut (designed to weaken the nations by unraveling their family-centered social fabric), to balkanizing Russia into multiple competing nations and plundering their natural resources (a centuries-old specialty of the British Empire inherited by the United States after WWII).

But the larger goal – the one related to the Third Temple – is the triggering of World War III to facilitate the One World Government by the U.N./WEF target date of 2030. Nothing would serve the globalist interests of geopolitical consolidation, population reduction, and the total subservience of the survivors better and faster than a global-economy-collapsing world war and its consequent famine and pestilence. It’s all planned and plotted: the Great Collapse paves the way for the Great Reset.

A huge benefit of WWIII for Israel would be the opportunity to fully de-nuclearize the increasingly close Russian ally Iran and to weaken or eliminate all of the other “Death to Israel” players on the board without being blamed for starting the world war. (Russia is the elites’ chosen scapegoat for that.) And, if WWIII is already happening for other reasons, there’s no longer a necessity to preserve the status quo on the Temple Mount. If WWIII launches soon enough, the very people who most want to build the Third Temple will still be in power. How long would it take to build? I’ve heard rumor that there are (for redundancy) three fully-constructed Temple buildings in diverse locations ready to be airlifted in pieces by construction helicopters at a moment’s notice. I don’t know if it’s true, but it is plausible.

On the prophetic side, the above scenario aligns closely with end-times theology, right down to the idea of the completed Third Temple serving as the symbol of world unity – “a house of prayer for all the nations” – when the season of world war gives way to a season of world peace in the transition from Collapse to Reset, and the still-unrevealed “peacemaker” Antichrist begins to pose as the Messiah.


Porn for Priests

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.  

Pope Benedict and the Antichrist

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.

One especially significantly fact is that this Vatican coup occurred shortly after a report which Pope Benedict had commissioned finally confirmed the existence of a powerful “gay mafia” in the Vatican (an open secret which had been publicly hinted at by his predecessor Pope John Paul).

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.

The Myth of the “Gay Conservative”

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.


Trump Must Repent of His Approval of Sodomy

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 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

As we approach the second anniversary…

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:

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.

Obituary for the GOP

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.


Nick Fuentes and ‘White Supremacy’ Hoax-Mongering

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?
