The Global Showdown of Anglo-Zionism and the Russian Empire

As Russia and the BRICS Alliance increasingly challenge US global hegemony, Americans will increasingly be confronted about the history of “Anglo-Zionism.” Here is some historical analysis on what that phrase really means. 

The most illuminating book I have ever read aside from the Bible is J.H. Allen’s Judah’s Scepter and Joseph’s Birthright” which expounds his version of the doctrine of British Israelism (that Brits and Jews share a common Hebrew ancestry) – a version I do NOT endorse, but to which some of the monarchy and many of the elites of Great Britain did subscribe (going all the way back to the 1500s), and which contains some highly intriguing elements that are at least plausible when separated from the larger myth. Allen published his fascinating summary in 1902 at the peak of BI’s social and political influence, five years after the formal establishment of Zionism (a Jewish Nationalist movement) in 1897 and fifteen years before the British Empire liberated the Holy Land – by military conquest – from the Muslim Ottoman Turks in 1917 and essentially gave it back to the Jews with the Balfour Declaration.  

Allen’s book offers by far the best summary of and biblical justification for the so-called “two house” teaching, which is the deeper and genuinely reliable scriptural bedrock on which the semi-mythological doctrine of BI is built. For that reason alone, it is well worth your time to read. It is upon that same foundation that I wrote my own book The Prodigal Son Prophecy, which, among other things, expands upon Allen’s “two house” explanations with further biblical proofs. My book, however, takes on the larger task of reexamining all of Bible prophecy from the Hebrew cultural perspective of the Apostles and the Prophets – showing in that process just how central the two-house doctrine actually is to God’s plan.

In the process of testing Allen’s summary of the doctrine of BI, I found so many highly questionable and vigorously disputed contentions that I was forced to reject the theory as offered while sifting out and setting aside the more plausible elements of it for further study. While engaged in that study over the past decade I came to realize that the truth of BI theory is really a separate issue from the geopolitical impact of belief in the theory by powerful elites. The distinction is analogous to that of a rich man who bequeaths his estate to someone he becomes convinced is his long lost heir. Whether or not that inheritor is truly a relative is an important question, but the practical consequences of the belief in its truth is an entirely different and perhaps more important matter.  

My primary focus, therefore, has shifted to a study of the development of the BI doctrine as a socio-political phenomenon in Great Britain and Western Europe, and that really begins with the rise of the Hebraic Movement in Christendom.     

What I mean by the Hebraic Movement is the rediscovery of the Hebrew perspective of the Apostles and the Prophets by Christian theologians with the help of Jews among whom they began intermingling because of shared or parallel persecution under the Spanish Inquisition. Over the course of a century or more these groups fled Spain: the Jews coalescing primarily in Holland, the Christians primarily gathering in England, Scotland and Switzerland but they continued in intermittent intellectual/religious fellowship and a constant shared apprehension of the power of Roman Catholicism. 

Out of that cooperation/cross pollination came Protestantism itself, built upon the “Messianic Jewish” understanding of “the priesthood of all believers” exemplified by the Jerusalem Council in Acts. Martin Luther was strongly influenced by the Jews and vigorously defended them at the start of his reform ministry, before fully and shamefully reversing himself, presumably under intense pressure from traditionalists amid his increasing frustration that they would not convert to Christ (which had been his only practicable self-defense for fellowshipping with them in the first place). 

Protestantism began formally under Luther and developed two key early branches: one under John Calvin in Switzerland and the other under John Knox in Scotland. The Knox branch formalized bottom-up Christianity in Presbyterianism, blossoming into the phenomenon of the Scottish Covenanters, from which came constitutionalism as a form of government.

The most monumental landmark of their cooperation was the purported sojourn of the Pilgrim Separatists with the Leyden Jews just prior to that fateful voyage of the Mayflower to to Plymouth, where “America’s first constitution” The Mayflower Compact (a covenantal oath) was written, and where America’s first Protestant church was built on Leyden St (and still operates today — as a Christian bed and breakfast in which I’ve stayed).

BUT, the vehicle by which all these things came about (at least from the 1500s) was the shared Christian/Jewish religious/political doctrine of British Israelism — which they believed to be true even if much of it wasn’t. British Israelism was the doctrinal taproot of what is today called Anglo-Zionism, and the ideological basis for the partnership of the British Monarchy and Jewish mercantile bankers that established the British Empire and ended the monopolistic religious/political tyranny of the Roman Catholic Church.

I contend based on my research thus far that British Israelism or “Anglo-Zionism” was the largely unheralded ideology of the elites that built the British Empire. I wrote a three-essay series documenting my support for this thesis here.

Now I must address the unpleasant implications of whether the Jews in the British Israel coalition actually believed the doctrine, or only invented it or used it as a tool to manipulate the British monarchy into fighting its battles. That will be the claim of today’s fervent Anti-Zionist movement in Christendom. I believe most Jews were sincere Millennialists, especially from the 1500s through the 1800s, but some were not, especially approaching the turn of the 20th Century, and that latter group is whom the Bible calls the “Synagogue of Satan.” I believe that’s who rules the Anglo-American and NATO alliance today and why the world is racing toward global tyranny overrun with systems of human enslavement and moral degeneracy (before the Russians can derail their train). 

I will defend the True Jews with the Bible’s Jewish parallel to the Wheat and Tares. Wheat is symbolic of Christians. Figs are symbolic of Jews. In Jeremiah 24 the good figs, like the true wheat, are taken away to a place of safety while the false/bad category are destroyed. And, just as Jeremiah and a remnant among those “left behind” were spared the wrath to fulfil God’s purposes, so will 144K Jews be sealed against death to survive the bowl judgments after the resurrection/rapture. That 144K (and a mixed multitude) will survive the 10 Days of Wrath and repopulate the earth during the Millennial Kingdom. 

The Bible shows that Christians and Jews WILL be reconciled in the Millennial Kingdom, and that British Israelism/Anglo-Zionism, properly understood – and purged of “tares” and “bad figs” and corrupt geo-politics and fantastical mythology — IS, like Messianic Judaism, a fulfilment of prophecy. Russia, while trying to hold the moral high ground in it’s Byzantine revival seems in all of this to be God’s instrument to bring the world to its final pre-millennial crisis where that purging will occur. 

The Impending Dem Bum-Rush of ‘Joey the Scapegoat’

(All Glory to God for the things shared in this testimony. It was all Him using a willing vessel.)

Joe Biden was never intended to become “President” of the United States in 2020. That slot was intended for Elizabeth Warren of the bluest of the blue states, Massachusetts, following a strategy that God used yours truly to foil. That strategy was a tag-team effort of the nation-wide Purple Uniparty led on the red side by the Bush Team through their man Mitt Romney, and on the blue side by the Clinton/Obama Team using Warren herself.

The key to the plan was setting up Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker to take down Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential primary season as the “voice of Republican reason,” while Old Pocahontas made a beeline for the oval office, where her first act as President would be the “refreshingly bipartisan gesture” of hiring Baker for a top cabinet post as the nation breathed an enormous collective sigh of relief that the “hateful and divisive” Trump era was finally over.

The strategy kicked off as a nationwide media campaign in 2017 and early 2018, exemplified by a Politico article titled “How Charlie Baker ditched Trump to become the most popular governor in America

The essence of the plan was for both Baker and Warren to win off-the-chart landslide victories in the November 2018 elections while giving each other the occasional high-profile neck rub to “show how the grown-ups can work across the aisle for the good of the people.” All of this would be gushingly praised non-stop by the corporate media and contrasted with clips of Trump acting “rude” and “mean.”

Charlie Baker was being set up as America’s Knight in Shining Armor: not to win the presidency in 2020 (because the conservatives in the GOP would never back him in the general election) but only to weaken Trump sufficiently in the primary and among Independents so that Warren could beat him in the general. In the general, Baker would bash Trump and praise Warren – perhaps as a hired gun on CNN or some other key media outlet. BUT when I primaried Baker and annihilated that “most popular governor” narrative, Mitt Romney was substituted for that Trump-bashing role – far less effectively as a barely-relevant Utah Senator – and at huge political cost.

They could theoretically pull all this off because nowhere is the Purple Uniparty more fully in control of a state than Massachusetts. But there was a big problem to fix first – because lesbian then-Attorney General Maura Healy (and now governor) was next in line to be governor and probably would have beaten Baker handily in 2018 if she ran against him. But for the sake of taking down Trump, Healy “graciously” stayed out of the race and the Dem machine allowed only a couple of no-name political weaklings to run in her place. The whole thing was a blatant stand-down by the Democrat Party to clear the path for Baker.

Meanwhile, the Massachusetts Republican Party had been in the iron grip of the RINOs since the Bush Machine successfully ran Utah Mormon Mitt Romney (a sort-of reverse carpet-bagger) to win the MA governorship in 2002. Romney is essentially the red-team counterpart to Joe Biden – a political “waterboy” who does what he’s told and takes whatever job he’s assigned. After serving in the MA governor’s role (where he launched the prototype of Obamacare), he was later assigned to take a dive to Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, just as his fellow Bush waterboys John McCain did in 2008, and Bob Dole had done for Bill Clinton in 1996. Importantly, Baker was Romney’s protégé, personally hand groomed.

So confident of its power, the RINO MAGOP had for years openly cheated to keep conservatives out of the governor’s race. At the GOP convention in 2010 (at the height of the Tea Party) they kept conservative hero Christy Mihos off the ticket by back-room ballot stuffing until he fell below the 15% minimum to qualify for the primary – after having obviously won more than 15% in the floor vote. Furious conservatives had no legal recourse but in the next gubernatorial convention in 2014 my friend Brian Camenker of MassResistance organized video-taping of the floor vote, so when the RINOs cheated again to keep my friend Mark Fisher off the ballot, he sued and won a settlement that cost the MAGOP nearly $500,000 (including attorney fees).

I first ran for Mass governor in 2014 as an Independent conservative and so I was an ideological insider with front-row seats to all the political circuses. My purpose in that run was to to have a platform to preach the biblical worldview in the political arena (where its rarely heard) but also to break free from the “Saul Alinsky Box” the MA LGBTs had locked me in to destroy my pro-family ministry there and drive me from the state. Read this article to learn about that tactic and how I beat it. Here is more information about that 2014 and 2018 races.

I had no intention of running for any office again, but when Baker announced in late 2017 he would use MA state tax dollars to refund Planned Parenthood any money they lost from the US Congress for their role in the grotesque baby parts harvesting scandals exposed by undercover pro-life activists, I was suddenly inspired to go after him politically. Having always been a “waterboy” for Jesus Christ I jumped into that task with both feet – but with no knowledge of any of the Baker/Warren strategy I outlined above – I learned all that later. I was just a useful tool for the Lord, saying “Here I am, send me” (Isaiah 6:8) – with invaluable practical knowledge from my prior run.

In 2014 I ran to win – not EXPECTING to win absent a massive miracle, but running for real and I was dead serious. That meant running as a Republican, and that meant taking on the Bush/Romney/Baker machine. I had to pull money from my (not so big) retirement account to launch my campaign including a $25,000 fee for the right to give a speech on the main stage at the state convention. Long story short, the MAGOP pulled out ALL the stops to try to keep me off the ballot including an elaborate cheating strategy. BUT, in a truly glorious, genuinely miraculous David and Goliath showdown I not only thwarted their fraud but, in a barn-burner speech that earned a roaring standing ovation, broke the bank with an unprecedented 27.6% delegate count, and went on to win 36.1% of the primary votes. (The look on then GOP Chairwoman Kirsten Hughes face during my speech – bottom of the page – is priceless!)

I spent less than 150,000 dollars for 100,000 voted compared to Bakers $7 million for 175,000 votes, while being boycotted by the state media, except for the Boston Globe which painted me as Satan incarnate.

God used me to destroy the Baker/Warren anti-Trump strategy, which means I’m partly to blame for Joe Biden being sent in as a substitute for Warren, just as Romney substituted for Baker. And like Romney, Biden is not up to that job, and thus has been set up as a scapegoat for the collapse of their plans – which are inevitable because Donald Trump was NOT broken and replaced in 2020. The best they could do was a clumsy and blatant coup and cover-up that has been unraveling ever since.

I first publicly predicted that “Joey the Scapegoat” would be taken out by the Dems in my WND column of October 25, 2021 As usual, my timeline was too short, but the rest is still timely and accurate. Now even the rank and file Dems know he’s pretty certain to get the bum’s rush out of the White House – and fairly soon.

Brazil and the Crisis of BRICS

In one of the little ironies of history, Edward Gibbons began publishing six volume writing project, The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire in 1776, just as what would become the American Empire was being launched with a revolution against a powerful British Empire still in its ascendency. His final book in the series was published in 1788 as America was in the middle of its two-year transition from a Confederacy to a Constitutional Republic. The British Empire peaked around 1914 and was surpassed by the United States as the world’s foremost super-power in WWII, becoming the sole super-power upon the success of the Anglo-American partnership in collapsing its chief rival, the Soviet Union during the Reagan/Thatcher Administrations.

Studying the history of geo-political upheavals is fascinating, but living through one makes the topic personal and often painful. Today the world is in the midst of a new upheaval involving many of the ancient powers seeking a new global order, led by a coalition called BRICS which is an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. On August 22-24, 2023 the BRICS coalition doubled in size, adding Iran, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Egypt, and Ethiopia, effective January 1, 2024.

The dominant powers of this group are primarily Russia and China, with Russia providing the executive and military leadership and China providing both the financial stability of an economic giant and the political leverage of holding most of deeply indebted America’s loans. But all twelve of these countries are major developed nations with a common interest in ending Anglo-American hegemony – which largely translates into ending US/British control of global trade and banking, and defanging NATO as its global enforcer.

For decades, rival elites on both sides of this divide have been engaged in a global chess-match set mostly along the imaginary boundary line of Europe and Asia – because apparently most of them accept Mackinder’s maxim that whoever controls Eurasia controls the world. But adding to the complexity of this equation, and bringing in other regions, especially the Middle East, is the importance of trade routes, including oil pipelines.

If you start with this premise and look back over geo-politics since WWII, all the subsequent lesser wars and “police actions” initiated mostly by the US fit easily into the chess-match paradigm. Syria is about rival oil pipeline routes. Iraq and Lybia were about global banking dependency. Iran is about control of the Suez Canal. The Ukraine war is both about oil pipelines and creating an “Israel” on Russia’s border – meaning a heavily militarized forward base to represent western interests on a mostly hostile frontier.

It is also about gaining a tighter political and economic grip on Europe through energy dependency, of which the US destruction of the Nord Stream II pipeline was an essential component: to prevent a Russian/ German economic alliance that would have also supplied all of Europe with cheap, abundant energy.

US domestic policy is being heavily affected by these geopolitical moves. For example, I contend that the sudden move to ban natural gas stoves is to free more supply for Europe which is building gigantic transfer terminals to receive liquified natural gas from US tankers to offset the loss from Russia (none of which is getting US media coverage).

Indeed, the entire frantic “climate crisis” over carbon emissions – while also a means of increasing globalists power – also seems to be an acknowledgment by “our” elites that the BRICS alliance might very well wrest control of the oil-based global economy away from us, and we need to be positioned to survive a global ban on carbon-based fuels that we will attempt to impose as a counter-measure. While that goal may prove unattainable given the growing clout of the BRICS alliance, it does at least provide an emerging narrative theme to justify future wars and police actions to “save the planet” from “criminally carbon-spewing nations.”

This chess-game framework also explains why we’re being conditioned to prepare for a Great Reset. We already have no ability to pay back China and other holders of our massive debt, but that problem will become exponentially worse if/when the dollar loses its globally exclusive reserve currency status. The best chance for retaining our hegemony would be the announcement of a global debt jubilee in conjunction with the launch of a completely new economic system which we control. Think of the Great Reset like geo-political chemo-therapy: a dose of poison designed to kill off the “cancer” in the world (i.e. non-submissive regimes) which theoretically would not kill the host body in the process, but leave it stronger in the end.

As much as the extreme moral degeneracy of our elites makes the thought of a new global order more appealing, I don’t think BRICS can beat the west in this worsening conflict and I believe the example of Brazil shows why. Brazil’s recently coup-reinstalled President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is as much a creation of the American left as any of our home-grown blue-state tyrants, but he’s also a highly ambitious political animal who presumably would rather not be under the American thumb. He was one of the original founders of BRICS (which got its name in 2010 from a Wall Street financial analyst) and is the only one of the original heads of state from its founding.

The BRICS threat to US hegemony in 2010 was nominal, but by last month’s meeting in South Africa it was massive and growing. Lula’s participation in that meeting suggests to me he now is either serving as a US mole in the BRICS leadership, or he believes BRICS represents a realistic opportunity to break his country free from US control. Perhaps it was only for managing public perceptions but concurrent with the BRICS summit, the Brazilian Supreme Court (which staged the coup that reinstalled him) passed one of the world’s first anti-homophobia laws with actual criminal penalties.

That fascist law was a major bone for Lula to throw to the American leftists who helped rig the Brazilian election, in essence saying, “I’m still your boy.” But it also exposes the weakness of the glue holding BRICS together – the LGBT agenda is anathema to Russia and the other members. There is really nothing but a mutual desire to escape US control that keeps them aligned – and THAT makes it extremely vulnerable to the British side of the Anglo-American pact, who are history’s greatest masters of “divide and conquer.” Watch and see.

To the painful personal side of this crisis, it was Lula who, during his first term in 2007 first attempted to criminalize pro-family activism and my great friend and ally Julio Severo had to flee Brazil for the jungles of Guatemala after leading the defeat of the law. He, his wife, and their young seven children lived in exile there until he died in 2021. My ministry has ever since provided financial support to keep them together in one home, fed and clothed. My point is that global changes always hit the “little people” hardest – but being aware of what’s really going on helps us to better prepare and adapt. ###

The Rivalry of Joseph and Judah

Evangelical Pastor Scott Lively of First Century Bible Church and Messianic Jewish Rabbi Otto Gershon discuss the history of Messianic Judaism from the earliest days of the New Testament to the present time, and how the doctrine of the Two House Covenant plays out in Bible history and prophecy, especially as it relates to the First and Second advent of Christ.

The division of Jacob’s covenantal inheritance into two separate houses occurred simply by his marrying two wives, Leah (House of Judah) and Rachel (House of Israel). The rivalry of these two houses for power and influence among the twelve-tribe nation began early and is showcased in Genesis 37 when Joseph first flaunted his favored status with their father Jacob (exemplified by the “coat of many colors”) and in revenge was sold into slavery among the Gentiles by jealous older half-brother Judah. Joseph becomes a slave in Egypt, where his later tribal identity gets linked to the image of the ox (the fatted calf/golden calf becoming highly symbolic of his sojourn there).

Living among the Gentiles would forever be a dominant theme of Joseph’s life (the man as well as the tribe, house and kingdom) as prophesied by Jacob in Genesis 40:22 in which the fruitful (highly populous) vine (symbol of the House of Israel) would grow “over the wall” (outside the boundary of the Mosaic law). Joseph, as the “prodigal son,” of Luke 15:11-31, would also famously live among the “swine” (Gentiles). When his House becomes also a Kingdom in rebellion to David’s grandson Rehoboam, it’s first act is to reject essential tenets of Mosaic Judaism. Eventually its land is purged and repopulated by Gentiles, as represented during the time of Christ by 1) the Samaritans and 2) a mixed population of Hebrews and Gentiles called Galileans in “Galilee of the Gentiles” which is the northern portion of what had been Northern Israel. 

Most importantly, upon the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the House of Israel becomes the home to all Gentiles (and individual Jews) who accept His gift of salvation — all of these saved ones collectively being identified as the “Bride of Christ,” awaiting remarriage to God in the Wedding Feast of the Lamb just prior to the Millennial Kingdom.  

Meanwhile Judah is the older brother who 

1) not only stays metaphorically within the boundaries of Hebrew identity (i.e. stays in strained but unbroken fellowship with the father) in the prodigal son parable, but 

2) physically stays with father Jacob while Joseph lives as a slave in Egypt, plus 

3) legally inherits and fulfils the covenantal promise of holding the “scepter” to the Hebrew monarchy per Genesis 49:10, starting with David, and 

4) thus actually defines “Judaism” as the centerpiece of Hebrew identity for those who decline to accept the Christ of the First Advent but instead stubbornly keep their focus on the Christ of the Second Advent (the one and the same Messiah to whom they remain partially blinded as summarized in Romans 11.     

The Apostolic Age of Christendom, which spanned the period from the birth of Jesus to the publication of the Book of Revelation and death of it’s scribe John (roughly 90CE), ended with a transition of power from the House of Judah (Jerusalem-based Judaism) to the House of Israel (Rome based Christianity). 

Importantly, because the franchise of Salvation in Christ was opened to the Gentiles by Jesus, the power in question was no longer limited to the political and geographical boundaries of the twelve tribes but became more a measure of their collective authority in the world, especially religious authority.

Lets review the history of the two house rivalry. During the life of Jacob, the twelve tribes had been united under his authority as holder of the entirely of the Abrahamic Covenant. While there was rivalry between the House of Judah and House of Joseph, the House of Jacob nevertheless dominated both. It wasn’t until Jacob’s death that a successor would assume the dominant role. That successor, of course, would be Joseph. Indeed, all twelve tribes joined him in Egypt for hundreds of years, subject to the authority of his house, which was in turn subject to the top authority of the Gentile world, the Egyptians.

In the end Joseph’s house lost its influence when a Pharoah arose “who did not know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8, Acts 7:19) and power shifted temporarily to the House of Levi through the intervention of Moses. God raised up Moses and the House of Levi to lead the Hebrews out of slavery, establish the Levitical Priesthood, and to become a unifier of the twelve tribe nation under one common, comprehensive body of laws. This was the also the origin of what we call “the separation of church and state” (a benign social distinction in God’s design for civilization).

During the Exodus and the subsequent years in the wilderness, the people were being prepared for the conquest and colonization of the Holy Land, which was legally theirs by God’s decree in Genesis 15:18-19. They were also being formally and thoroughly restored to their distinct tribal identities: receiving separate and distinct tribal symbols and banners, roles and responsibilities, and being organized by tribe in precise geometrical order around God’s tabernacle.  

When it was time to enter the Holy Land, Moses sent in one spy from each of the twelve tribes. Importantly, only Joshua of the House of Ephraim (Joseph) and Caleb of the House of Judah insisted that they obey God and invade. But fear among the other ten tribes prevailed and they were all then cursed to spend another 40 years in the wilderness – a curse that has echoed across the centuries on the 9th of Av.  

Upon the death of Moses the Levite, power shifted back to the House of Israel under Joshua the Ephraimite. Remember that it was to Joseph’s second-born son Ephraim that Jacob/Israel had personally bequeathed the first-born right of inheritance per Genesis 48:13-22. That’s why the name Ephraim is synonymous with House of Israel, as reconfirmed in Jeremiah 31:9.

Joshua established Shiloh as the political and religious capital city of the twelve tribe nation and home to God’s tabernacle for roughly 400 years. Eventually the Ephraimites fell so far into Gentile idolatry that God allowed the Philistines to capture the Ark of the Covenant, ending the House of Israel’s reign in shame punished by the desolation of Shiloh and the elevation of the House of Judah to dominance.  

After a brief transitional period under the Benjamite King Saul (an Antichrist figure who slaughtered the Levitical priests at Nob and tried repeatedly to kill David) David the Judean became the first true King of Israel per Jacob’s prophecy of Genesis 49:10 and established his capital at Jerusalem in the territory of Judah.   

David’s united kingdom – the symbolic but imperfect representation of the Millennial Kingdom – lasted only through the life of his son Solomon, whose grievous sins cost him the throne and divided the two houses and two kingdoms against each other – under Rehoboam the Judean and Jeroboam the Ephraimite. 

That sibling rivalry will never end until the actual Millennial Kingdom, when “the jealousy of Ephraim will depart, and the adversaries of Judah will be cut off. Ephraim will no longer envy Judah, nor will Judah harass Ephraim” (Isaiah 11:13).  

What has never been done, to my knowledge, is a chronicle of that rivalry during the Christian Era. This has become my chief area of study in recent years, and elements of it have been the subject of various articles, but now I am ready to start documenting my findings in a more systematic fashion. This essay is essentially my starting point on that project.


BRICS and Loans May Break Our Bones

I’ve been pretty much housebound in our little cottage during the summer heat wave here in super-humid Memphis so I’ve begun playing a computer game called Civilization as a diversion from my various book-writing projects. It’s the 5th generation of this game, which first launched in 1991. I’ve never played the prior versions but this one is like the old board game Risk but infinitely more complex and enthralling. And, in God’s unpredictable sense of humor, it is the perfect complement to my recent studies on history and geopolitics. After just a few hours of playing, my understanding of the mindset of the upper elites’ had been greatly increased and refined. My abstract and academic perspectives on the global realignment taking place relative to the declining Anglo-America NATO powers and the ascending BRICS alliance came to life as I built my own empire and strove for global dominance.

The game puts you in the seat of power to make decisions require long term planning involving the fate of nations and the timing and trajectory of technology and social policy. Such things as the will of the people far below you are merely considerations to be weighed against other factors they can’t see or appreciate, including the will of competing powers that may be malicious or benign, and the demands of constituent powers and special interests within your empire (think Pfizer and the LGBTs) who may or may not care about people within their sphere of influence or control.

Playing Civilization V has been like watching a curtain being drawn back to expose all the major players on the world stage: one gigantic “Game of Thrones” – which consequence (the revelation of this truth, I mean) is so obvious to me now that I think both that game and the film series may actually be social engineering tools in their own right – designed by the elites to heighten appreciation for their challenges and thus lessen hostility to them: to “walk a mile in their shoes” so to speak. Heck, playing Civ 5 might very well be mandatory training for the World Economic Forum’s “Young Global Leaders” or perhaps even a secret aptitude assessment tool being monitored by elite recruiters (which concept has been a plot element of at least three science-fiction films/series I can think of.) “Game of Thrones” instills a sense of foreboding (predictive programming) about a rising threat to all of civilization from the frozen north (think Russia).

But here in the real world among the common people, self-determination is not a social privilege granted by benign or pragmatic elites, but a gift of God built into the order of Creation. And the many religions of the world that influence the will of the people are not, as in CIV5, totally interchangeable tools for population control. When the powers of the world align to impose new levels of control through contrived “climate crises” and “disease epidemics” (things not technically in the game but equivalent to things that are) the people of the real world do not just adjust and get over it (or maybe they do – but they shouldn’t.)

It does help, however, to have insights into how the elites think and see the world, especially regarding the much longer-term planning they do than the common people realize. For example, the Anglo-American elites knew at the end of WWII that the Russian Empire would grow as a threat to their already centuries-long global hegemon which arose under the British Monarchy (when “the sun never set on the British Empire.”) After WWII, the American side of the partnership rose to (real or apparent) dominance.

The planning goes even deeper than that as evidenced by Woodrow Wilson’s role in creating the League of Nations. His globalist influence continues through the work of the Wilson Center
offering in 2011 this summary of the American elites’ perspective that persists today:

“Sir Halford Mackinder, the father of geopolitics, argued that the power that controls Eurasia controls the world. How can the West ensure that the struggle for this fundamental theater in world politics is resolved in favor of Western democratic governance—without the autocratic domination of Eurasia?”

That’s why MacArthur wanted to keep the Allied war machine of WWII rolling to Moscow. But Truman fired him to take that option off the board and NATO was formed as an alternative, with a strategy of slow encirclement that has taken us incrementally to the Ukrainian/Russian border, which is, of course, the ultimate, existential red line for the Russians whose only choice was submission or war.

The Eurasian “world island” is dominated today by Russia and China who have their own vision for breaking the Anglo-American hegemon by challenging it with a new multi-national economic alliance called BRICS. It’s all about ending exclusive US control of the world “reserve currency,” the dollar. Theoretically, if the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) create their own workable system for international trade without using the dollar, the US will lose the ability to print unlimited sums to cover its massive debts, and our economy will experience an unsurvivable crash. Our loans suddenly will come due with no way to pay them off.

Does that explain the non-stop hard-sell of an economic “Great Reset” that nobody wants? Do the elites know dollar dominance is likely in a death spiral?

Is the self-destructive insanity of the OBiden administration all just cultural sabotage by China (using bribery and extortion of US pols) to weaken US resistance to BRICS and turn Americans against our own government? (If “our democracy” means sexual anarchy and the grooming and mutilation of children, hatred of “whiteness,” and unstoppable election fraud who would fight to preserve a hegemonic system based on “democracy” instead of embracing the BRICS idea of a new multi-polar order?)

Is fear of BRICS the real reason for the fear of Donald Trump and the “America First” movement? (Doesn’t “America First” implicitly reject the very globalist strategy driving NATO and its necessary system of endless wars and international bullying?)

The western media is downplaying the fact that BRICS added six new members this week: Iran, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Egypt, and Ethiopia. The potential negative impact of this for the US is huge. Here’s a high quality analysis from the pro-BRICS side .

One surprising result of playing Civ5 is a renewed love and loyalty for the America I grew up in, and a greater hesitancy to view the BRICS alliance favorably. Because whatever short-term benefits the world might reap from a defeat of today’s deeply perverse and corrupt Anglo-American hegemony, the replacement system would soon be just as bad for other reasons – because alliances of strongmen only last as long as it serves their individual interests, and the only interest the BRICS nations really have is ending US bullying. After that it would be a very bloody free-for-all, except in the real world, and not in the safety of a computer game.

The Boy Scouts of Gomorrica

by Dr. Scott Lively, 8/5/2023

1992:‘NAMBLA calls on the Boy Scouts of America to cease its discrimination against openly gay or lesbian persons in the appointment of its scout masters. This will permit scouts to be exposed to a variety of lifestyles and will permit more of those individuals who genuinely wish to serve boys to do so. I feel especially honored to have been asked to alert you of this resolution…I have also been a scout and a scout leader and share with so many in NAMBLA affection for the movement. We recognize, of course, that the action for which we call is inevitable. What a great added contribution your organization will make possible to all the boys and girls who participate in it when you take this step.’ ” Unanimous resolution of the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) at its 16th membership conference, held in Chicago, August 7-9-1992, as reported by Leland Stevenson, Co-Recording Secretary of NAMBLA in the November 1992 edition of the NAMBLA Bulletin.

2023: “The Boy Scouts of America scouting organization is inviting ‘LGBTQ’ advocacy at its national jamboree camp in West Virginia. The advocacy was applauded by LGBTQ advocate Mike De Socio in the Washington Post. ‘There is value in the type of place it is becoming: one where any kid, of any race or gender or sexual orientation, feels at home.’ ” Neil Munro, Breitbart News, July 30, 2023.

There are few culture war losses more emblematic of America’s collapse into depravity than the pederasts’ takeover of the Boy Scouts of American (BSA) in 2013. I suspect there’s a special sub-basement of Hell for traitors to humanity like Obama agents Robert Gates and Rex Tillerson who orchestrated the BSA’s surrender from inside its own boardroom – despite the BSA’s absolute right to reject the LGBT agenda having been strongly vindicated by the United States Supreme Court in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale on June 28, 2000. My article “The Deep State Takedown of the Boy Scouts of America” (published in February of 2020) details the steps in that tragic process.

Around the same time that NAMBLA was (correctly) predicting the BSA’s “inevitable” capitulation to their agenda, I was confronting then presidential candidate Bill Clinton on live television on the matter and, by quickly pressing in with an (unapproved) follow-up question, essentially backed him into a corner on whether the BSA should be forced to embrace homosexuality: he famously said “No, I don’t support that,” an admission which Rush Limbaugh pounced on the next day on his radio show. (That exchange is also highlighted in my above-cited 2020 article.)

It’s hard to believe thirty one years have passed since then – and harder still to cope with the fact that every child born since the Clinton Administration has never known the America of natural family normalcy that existed in my childhood. Many children experienced it personally in their own homes, but collectively as a society they have come of age (probably without recognizing it) during America’s total transition from a Christian cultural worldview to the NAMBLA worldview.

Importantly, British and American Christians had REDEEMED boy scouting from its early roots which in fact aligned more with NAMBLA than with Christianity. Scouting did not begin not with Britain’s Lord Baden Powell in 1907 as is commonly believed but in Germany in the late 1800s with the deeply morally corrupt Wandervogel Movement. By 1912 the German scouting movement was so thoroughly depraved that one of its leaders brazenly published a book titled “The German Wandervogel Movement as an Erotic Phenomenon” which openly defended its culture of pederasty and told German parents they’d just have to get used to it.

After the BSA’s fall to the “gays” in 2013 I published my article “Satan Wins Back the Scouts” which documents the reality of early scouting. Please read it at The heavily censored evidence I offer in that piece you will likely not find in any other source. Here is a sample:

“[T]he Wandervoegel offered youth the chance to escape bourgeois German society by retreating back to nature…But how was this accomplished? What made it possible for the lifestyle created within the Wandervoegel to differ significantly from its bourgeois parent? The answer is simple: the Wandervoegel was founded upon homosexual, as opposed to heterosexual sentiments …In order to understand the success of the movement, one must acknowledge the homosexual component of its leaders…Just as the leaders were attracted to the boys, so were the boys attracted to their leaders. In both cases the attraction was sexually based”
 (Richard Mills, “Gay Roots: Twenty Years of Gay Sunshine,” 1991, pages152-53).

It should be apparent to every open eyed adult that organizations for boys attract pederasts like chickens attract hawks. (I’ve addressed that theme in my article “Desmond, the Boy Scouts and Pedophilia.”)

No one was more conscious of that fact than the founders of the Boy Scouts of America who created history’s best system for the “morally straight” training of boys into men. Indeed, it was that very phrase in the Boy Scout Oath that determined the positive ruling of the Supreme Court in the Dale case:

“On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.”

The Boy Scout Oath is a glimpse back to a world that has been lost to us. No, not lost but stolen by wicked Marxist ideologues intent on destroying Judeo-Christian culture on earth. Today instead of a nationwide consensus that boys and young men should be “morally straight,” we have a nationwide culture war where every child and teen is under relentless mental and spiritual siege by flagrant and militant sexual perverts (or their surrogates) in virtually all the spheres that influence their young lives.

Right before our eyes, and despite our best efforts to prevent it, the Boy Scouts of America has become the Boy Scouts of Gommorica – with a subliminal message for all the boys of America that God is impotent and irrelevant and morality is whatever you want it to be.

But I say these boys are worth fighting for, and that the Christian men and women of this nation should fight back by finding other ways to reach them (such as the Christian alternative called Trail Life with the truth about God, true masculinity and virtue.

Jesus the Avenger of Blood

He’s not a baby in a manger anymore, He’s not a broken man on a cross. He didn’t stay in the grave, and He’s not staying in Heaven forever…People get ready, Jesus is coming!” 

People Get Ready! Misty Edwards, Forerunner Music (2007). 

I saw under the altar the souls of those having been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had upheld. And they cried out in a loud voice,
“How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You avenge our blood and judge those who dwell upon the earth?”

Revelation 6:9-10.

One of the important milestones in my maturation as a Christian was hearing the prophetic worship song People Get Ready! by Misty Edwards about a dozen years ago. I didn’t hear the whole song but only a short clip running from approximately 3:28 to 5:40. In the vernacular of the Hippie generation in which I came of age, it “blew my mind.” That two minutes of prophetic music completely transformed my perspective on the second coming of Christ from a merely abstract theological concept to a stark, looming reality, and it changed the image of Him in my heart and mind from the soft and gentle Jesus of the first advent to the image John painted of Jesus in Revelation 19:11-21. 

“Then I saw heaven standing open, and there before me was a white horse. And its rider is called Faithful and True. With righteousness He judges and wages war. He has eyes like blazing fire, and many royal crowns on His head. He has a name written on Him that only He Himself knows. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is The Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in fine linen, white and pure, follow Him on white horses. And from His mouth proceeds a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. And He has a name written on His robe and on His thigh: King of King and Lord of Lords.”

“Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out in a loud voice to all the birds flying overhead, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings and commanders and mighty men, of horses and riders, of everyone slave and free, small and great.” Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies assembled to wage war against the One seated on the horse, and against His army. But the beast was captured along with the false prophet, who on its behalf had performed signs deceiving those who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. Both the beast and the false prophet were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. And the rest were killed with the sword that proceeded from the mouth of the One seated on the horse. And all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.”   

John’s word-portrait reveals the Jesus of the Second Advent as a man of war, and the avenger of blood. In it, His long-suffering tolerance for wickedness, in the hope all people would repent (2 Peter 3:9), has ended, and His wrath against those who have chosen to remain His enemies despite all the many chances He has given them is finally poured out on the earth. Just as the “wheat” (the righteous) were harvested and glorified to become part of the Heavenly Host attending His return, so are the “grapes” (the wicked) now harvested and crushed in the Winepress of God’s Wrath.  

Ever since I heard that song, the focus of my biblical worldview – in terms of what it means to be “Christlike” – has been forward looking and not backward, and I have felt strong vindication from the Lord in my career as a culture warrior. I have also largely abandoned the expectation that human efforts would solve the crisis of the world if we just stayed pure in our hearts and fought harder on the battlefield. Prophecy had come alive to me a few years before I heard the Edwards song, but my sense that His return would be sooner than later was sharpened, and, of course, events over this past decade have strongly strengthened that view. I fight to win anyhow – because it’s simply our duty always to be salt and light against the spread of corruption – but I know He is coming back soon when all these battles will be moot.  

For the past year my wife and I have livestreamed our weekly Freestyle Bible Study on Sunday afternoons. (Our archive of past studies is on Rumble.)  We go chapter by chapter through the Bible, reading and then discussing the text in a conversational manner. We’re in 1 Samuel this month and for the past two weeks (covering 1 Samuel 18-20) have read and discussed the rise of David the Christ figure in contrast to first Goliath and then King Saul, both of whom are Antichrist figures .

It struck me during these studies that while the church widely acknowledges David as a Christ figure (necessarily so if one has any respect at all for Bible literalism), that I had never in my Christian life heard anyone point out that the life and acts of David align with the Jesus of the second advent far more than the first advent. Both David and the returned Jesus are men of war who unite all twelve tribes under one monarchy. Never in the story of David do we see more than a glimpse of the soft and gentle Jesus of the first advent – and never in the earthly ministry of Jesus the Christ do we see more than a glimpse of the righteously angry avenger that David exemplified.

(Consider the call to the birds to come and eat the flesh of the wicked dead killed by the deliverer in both Revelation 19:17-18 and 1 Samuel 17:46 and how totally contrary this seems to the modern Christian concept of Jesus rooted exclusively in first advent portrayals, softened further by secular humanist values.) 

Neither do we see the unification of the 12 tribes as a result or aspect of Jesus of the first advent. True, we see members of all 12 tribes united in Christianity, but the tribes themselves remain split between the House of Israel (Christianity) and House of Judah (Judaism) through the entirety of the 2000-year-long Age of the Gentiles. Indeed, that division defines this age just as the reconciliation of the tribes (Ezekiel 37:15-28) defines the Millennial Kingdom, when Christ will “reign on the throne of David” (Isaiah 9:7; Luke 1:32).  

The Millennial Kingdom is showcased in the full chapter of Isaiah 11, where we find in verses 12-13 “He [Christ] will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; He will collect the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Then the jealousy of Ephraim [House of Israel] will depart, and the adversaries of Judah [House of Judah] will be cut off. Ephraim will no longer envy Judah, nor will Judah harass Ephraim.” This passage would make no sense if one assumed the Jesus of the first advent had fulfilled this prophecy. No, this prophecy remains unfulfilled – EXCEPT to the extent that the rise of Messianic Judaism (Christ-believing Jews) represents a foreshadowing of what’s soon to come.  

I believe the emergence of Messianic Judaism shows we are presently on the cusp of the end of the Gentile Age and the start of the Millennial Kingdom. I believe Messianic Judaism will be the religion of the Millennial Kingdom for the humans who repopulate the earth after Armageddon, but is NOT the religion of the Bride of Christ who will rule and reign with Christ (after glorification), no longer needing religion.

Importantly, as summarized by Paul in Romans 11, the House of Judah will not repent and accept Christ until the second advent, when the Jesus they see is the David-like “deliverer…from Zion” – and only then will they recognize that He was also “the one they pierced” … “and they will mourn for Him, like one mourning for an only son” (Zechariah 12:10). 

That time is not far off. People get ready!


The Most Important Forgotten Truth of the Bible

I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land” (Isaiah 6:8-12).

This was God’s message to Isaiah upon his commission to become the prophet to the two Hebrew kingdoms in the generation when Assyria successfully conquered Israel and unsuccessfully attempted to conquer Judah. These two kingdoms, rooted in two separate houses (Leah’s and Rachel’s: Ruth 4:11) emerged at the very beginning of the twelve-tribe people-group called the Hebrews. At the time of the above Isaiah passage, the two houses/kingdoms were at war with each other – during which crisis the Judeans were called “Jews” for the very first time, specifically to distinguish them from the Israelites (2 Kings 16:6).

There would be a near-term “partial fulfillment” of the Isaiah 6:8-12 prophecy (perhaps better characterized as an “iteration of the desolation-of-Jerusalem Biblical pattern”) in the Babylonian conquest of Judah a century and a half later, and another partial fulfillment by the Romans in 70AD following the earthly ministry of Our Lord, and then a final and complete fulfilment in 135AD when the Romans expelled ALL Jews from the Holy Land “forever” and renamed it Syriac Palestine following the Simon bar Kokhbar revolt. That desolation of the land ended formally only in 1917 when the British Empire (at the height of the influence of Christian and Jewish Millennialists and the doctrine of British Israelism) liberated the Holy Land (by military conquest) from the Ottoman Turks and essentially gifted it to the Jews per the Balfour Declaration.

When Jesus began His ministry in Galilee of the Gentiles, the former territory of the Kingdom of Israel, He made it very clear that “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt 15:24) which was a prophetically important restatement of the limitation He imposed when He sent out “The Twelve” (Matt 10:5-6). The number of that first group of envoys was twelve because both Hebrew houses by this time included members of all twelve tribes, but the distinction between the two houses remained because the House of Israel had been “divorced” by God and went fully pagan, while the House of Judah had not (Jeremiah 3, especially verse 8, Hosea 1-3).

Having fulfilled various key prophecies by giving the genetic descendants of the House of Israel “first dibs” on salvation in His name, Jesus then broadened the franchise to “all the families of the earth” (Genesis 12:3), by sending out “The Seventy” (numerologically representative of the Table of Nations of Genesis 10: the 70 patriarchs descended from Noah). ALL who accept salvation in Christ from that day to this become a part of the “Bride of Christ” awaiting reunification with God through the Wedding Feast of the Lamb – fulfilling the promise of God to nullify the divorce by He Himself (the husband) dying on the cross to release the wife to remarry without violating the unbreakable law of Jeremiah 3:1.

Regarding salvation, the Jews were a special case, however, because authentic Torah-based Judaism implicitly assumed that the House of Judah would recognize its Messiah when He came: all the Biblical writings and rituals had been designed to prepare them for that. But Judaism had been severely corrupted in the years immediately preceding His first coming: the Jewish political world had been hijacked by the Edomite false-Jew Herod the Great (who, with Roman backing, had slaughtered the entire Hasmonean royal family (the descendants of the righteous Judah Maccabee who had overthrown the Antichrist figure Antiochus IV Epiphanes of Daniel 11). And internally, the cult of hyper-legalism called Phariseeism dominated Judaism. But because the House of Judah never ended and remains “married to God” to this day under the Old Covenant, there remains hope for the collective salvation of the Jews until the Second Coming – a doctrine that is detailed and reaffirmed by Paul in Romans 11.

All of this is enormously important in understanding why Jesus invoked Isaiah 6:9-10 in Mark 4:11-12, saying

The mystery of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to those on the outside everything is expressed in parables, so that, ‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn
and be forgiven
.’ ”

“Those on the outside” were (and are) those who, because of lack of cultural familiarity and/or spiritual discernment, could not recognize the teachings of the Tanach (Old Testament) which His parables conveyed in the form of symbols, metaphors and textual landmarks. Most Herodians, Pharisees and Non-Hebrews did not understand the hidden deeper meaning of the parables, even if they understood the surface meaning.

The best modern example of “seeing without perceiving” in Christendom is the parable that most closely fits the theme of “sibling rivalry” in Isaiah 6:8-12: the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

The surface meaning of the Prodigal Son parable happens to be one of the most profound truths of Christianity: that God welcomes back repentant sinners no matter how far they have fallen away from Him. The very clarity of this powerful message of God’s grace and mercy makes it the perfect cover for a deeper meaning that only Christ’s disciples and Torah-faithful Hebrews would have understood. But importantly, the surface meaning is not in the slightest degree diminished by the deeper message, a fact that is critical to remember when grappling with the revelation highlighted below.

Before I reveal it let me remind you that many Bible truths do not fit the Hellenic linear, two-dimensional perspective on Bible verses/passages which insists “either this/or that must be true exclusively.” In contrast, the Hebrew multi-dimensional perspective correctly recognizes “both this/and that can be simultaneously true.”

So, what is the deeper message hidden in plain sight in the Parable of the Prodigal Son?

“Very simply, the father in the parable is God. The older son is Judah, and the younger (prodigal) son is Joseph. These are the two actual sons of Jacob’s wives Leah and Rachel, respectively, the human roots of the two houses and later two kingdoms of Judah and Israel. Joseph, who is represented by his son Ephraim among the twelve tribes (as the symbolic head of the House of Israel per Jeremiah 31:9), led his house into idolatrous rebellion against God so egregiously that God “divorced” the House of Israel and sent him/them away to live among the Gentiles. God then made a way for Israel to be restored that simultaneously opened the door to salvation for the Gentiles.

To allay any doubt of His intended meaning (to the alert Hebrew listeners), Jesus designed the parable to directly connect the metaphorical redemption/restoration of the specially favored “Prodigal Son” in the parable with the historical restoration/restoration of the actual specially favored son of Jacob: Joseph (the patriarch of the House of Israel) by the Egyptian Pharaoh in Genesis 41. Note especially the symbolic significance of the robe (royal authority) and ring (lawmaking power) in the Genesis account, and of the sandals (ownership of land) in Ruth 4:7.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son is in actuality a summary of one two house prophecy of the reunification of the two Hebrew houses in the Millennial Kingdom. That doctrinal theme not only dominates several of the Bible’s prophetic books and is heavily interwoven throughout entire Old Testament, it is also subtly referenced in numerous books of the New Testament. Only those whose spiritual eyes have been opened to the historical and prophetic significance of the two house teaching will recognize it, but once the blinders of unfamiliarity are removed the truth about the two house doctrine is impossible to “un-see.” There is obviously much more to the doctrine than this brief article can relate, but it is likely that you, reader, will now begin recognizing two house passages whenever you read your Bible and be amazed that you never previously realized they were there or how central they are to Christianity.

For more on this topic read my book The Prodigal Son Prophecy.

Leftist lawfare and the abuse of power

The easiest way to distinguish real news reporting from the narrative-driven propaganda of the elites is the absence of reasoned counter-arguments to the message being pushed. Whenever any controversial matter is presented as if there is only one side to the story, you’re being manipulated, not informed. True news reporting (a rarity today) is fair and balanced, meaning that the opposing perspectives are acknowledged and incorporated in a manner that accurately reflects the true viewpoints of the parties. In contrast, narrative-driven propaganda presents only one side of the controversy or spins it by either misrepresenting the facts and/or the views of the disfavored parties, or just presenting the case as if the facts are unquestioned and any opposing arguments are so meritless as to justify their exclusion from the discussion.

Case in point: I happened to accidentally catch a “news” segment on NPR this week. It was accidental because I haven’t intentionally listened to NPR for years. It is one of the most relentless left-wing propaganda outlets in America. BUT, if you’re a fan of classical music, one of the few places on the radio dial to hear it is the NPR-controlled stations. I frankly think the music is bait to attract the more culturally refined strata of radio listeners (who, unlike me, tend to be decision-makers) so they can be spoon-fed the daily leftist talking points in a form most tailored to their tastes and susceptibilities. I always escape to another music station as soon as I hear the smarmy pivot to the “news” or commentary programs, which are invariably left-wing and propagandistic.

On this morning, however, I got hooked in when I started my car with the radio already tuned to the NPR station where an interview was underway, one I mistook for a discussion on the anti-sex trafficking movie “Sound of Freedom.” The two women were talking about the plight of children who had been enslaved and I was amazed and impressed to think NPR would actually cover that story. A few sentences later, my illusions were shattered when I realized they weren’t talking about actual victims showcased in “Sound of Freedom” but about a (presumably CIA) propaganda film about Ukrainian children supposedly kidnapped and taken to Russian “reeducation camps” by the Putin regime.

The interviewee then identified herself as a Berlin-based journalist covering the supposed criminal case against President Vladimir Putin for “Crimes Against Humanity” grounded in the kidnapping allegations. As an attorney credentialed in international human rights law, I’ve been following this matter from the start. I’ve known all along the charges against Putin are baseless and purely political: The children in question are nearly all from the pro-Russian Donbass region that declared independence from Ukraine in 2014 and formally voted (under the supervision of international observers) to join the Russian Federation in 2022. It’s just a pretext for geopolitical lawfare, and a fairly blatant one.

What I didn’t know, but learned from this journalist/spook(?) was that the path to indictment of Putin involved an unprecedented and frankly preposterous legal maneuver: The charging nation, Germany, a fully-controlled vassal-state of the U.S. since WWII, simply granted itself “universal jurisdiction” to prosecute the Russian president. Even the journalist acknowledged it’s lack of substance in a backhanded way, using the word “poof” to explain it’s origin as German law.

In all my years of watching corporate U.S. news about Russia and Putin, I have never seen a single counter-argument ever being offered in defense of President Putin (coverage of him is even worse than that of Trump). It’s been more than a decade since Obama restarted the Cold War to punish the Russians for banning “gay” propaganda to children, when every story began to paint him as a “brutal monster” – to the point that even many conservatives (who have zero reason to trust that same media on anything) seem to agree. I’m one of the few who swims against that tide. Bottom line: If NPR is touting it, you should KNOW it’s crap!

Let’s now turn our eyes back to the domestic front and the corrupt lawfare being waged against our anti-swamp hero Donald Trump (whom you should recall promised repeatedly in 2016 to normalize relations with the Russians, not destroy them). I’m not going to list all the examples of anti-Trump lawfare since you likely know them as well as I do. I’m just going to make the point that every one of them represents an Abuse of Power. Indeed, that phrase – “Abuse of Power” – defines every single Culturally Marxist act of the OBiden regime, including especially the Justice, State and Defense departments, the corporate news media, the cancel-culture social media, the public education system from the top universities down to the pre-school level, and even the public health industry.

The problem isn’t the law itself. Our constitution is still valid and sufficient to our needs. The government infrastructure remains adequate to the tasks it faces. The social systems we have relied upon for generations are still intact and effective in the sense of their structure and capacity. Law enforcement and the courts are inherently fully capable of coping with the load they face. America is still sound and functional in its “machinery.” Even the election systems – if not for corrupt people running them – are adequate to get the job done. The real problem in all these areas is the abuse of power by lawless leftists whom we have allowed into the seats of power.

What has been broken is the rule of law – and all the most egregious outrages we daily face under the “new normal” of Marxist control are proof of that: the worst being the perversion of justice by those tasked with exercising and preserving it (e.g., the FBI and Justice Department).

Lawfare by our government against its own citizens is the ultimate abuse of power – and that’s what the legal attacks on Donald Trump are all about.

Right behind that in gravity is the abuse of the power of information by the corporate media for the purpose of manipulating public beliefs and policy and to protect their co-conspirators in government.

And also desperately serious is the abuse of the superpower status of our nation to push us to the brink of World War III using Ukrainians as cannon fodder and Russia as a scapegoat. It’s all about triggering the Great Collapse to justify the Great Reset.

In every arena in which our elites “represent” us, domestically and around the world, their actions are lawless and their goals perverse. The whole world sees it, and most importantly, God sees it.

We citizens each have a civic duty to end the abuse of power by the exercise of our own rightful power under God and our Constitution, and that begins by seeking out the truth in every matter and insisting that truth, not narratives, be honored in every sphere of our society. Because if we can’t purge the lies and lawlessness from our midst before the elites bring in their Great Reset, there will be nothing left for us here but slavery.


America’s Bloodsucking Marxquitos

The Northampton, Massachusetts church that claims the legacy of the great revival preacher Jonathan Edwards defiles his memory and his mission by flying the Gay/Trans Pride flag (Photo/Scott Lively)

Kyle Reece: Listen, and understand. That terminator is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
(The Terminator, 1984)

The thing that Hollywood portrays most accurately is the relentlessness of evil. That’s ironic, because Hollywood is so often a tool of evil, but to paraphrase what we conservatives like to say in defense of guns, “Hollywood doesn’t kill righteousness, people do,” and the film industry can be just as powerful a force for good as it is for evil. Its so-often accurate portrayal of evil is a case in point in that Hollywood has infused our popular culture with many unforgettable iconic scenes and images of evil (e.g., “The Borg,” “Alien,” the “Body Snatchers”) that rival even the stories of the Bible as “cautionary tales.” These are genuine warning signs about what evil really looks like – especially the implacable relentlessness of evil.

Whether people heed those warnings often comes down to the effectiveness of the church in contrasting that evil with the goodness of God – something that is almost never depicted by Hollywood (but increasingly is depicted accurately by a rising tide of independent film companies).

I happen to be in Springfield, Massachusetts this week where my ministry is still officially based, although I live in the Memphis area now. One of my favorite places here is just north of Springfield: the huge, forested dog park on the grounds of the former Northampton State Hospital, bordered on one side by a picturesque small river across from which is the grounds of the ultra-ultra leftist Smith College, where years ago a speech by my former Board Member Ryan Sorba on his book “The Born-Gay Hoax” was shut down by rabid, screaming protestors who broke a window to get in.

I went to the dog park for my early morning walk Monday to meditate on the theme of the relentlessness of evil as represented in the phenomenon of Cultural Marxism. I composed the first paragraph of this article in my head on that walk. However, I was again reminded that God has a sense of humor in that as soon as I entered the forest I was besieged by literally hundreds of mosquitos. As someone who tries to avoid putting bug spray on my skin, I’ve gotten pretty good at fending off the flying pests with a small leafy branch (a “cow-tail” if you will) but in this case there were so many and they were so relentless that I was forced to abandon my walk after a quarter mile or so and retreat to my car – swishing my cow-tail like a Jedi Knight in a hail of laser blasts.

So I drove a mile and continued my walk on the main street of Northampton proper. I am no stranger to Northampton – sometimes called “the lesbian capital of the world,” where my own sister (now deceased) had once lived as a lesbian before repenting through the power of Christ, and where my mentally-ill father (long deceased) had been institutionalized at the State Mental Hospital for the last dozen years of his life.

Even so, it was disturbing to be reminded of how far a city that had once been a powerhouse of Christendom can fall. On my city walk I passed three historic churches that had once advanced Christian culture and values, including the Edwards Church, named after Northampton’s most famous son, Jonathan Edwards, the man whose sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is virtually synonymous with the First Great Awakening in America. All three churches were flying the Gay/Trans Pride flag, and (undoubtedly with no sense of irony whatsoever) the reader board at the Edwards Church advertised the message for this coming Sunday as “The Wheat and the Weeds.”

I have long believed that Cultural Marxism is designed to be the “terminator” of the Church – the end times cultural/spiritual “religion” whose mission is the total destruction of Judeo-Christian civilization and establishment of the Antichrist Kingdom. I’ve also recognized that its battle strategy is to defile humanity so thoroughly through enslavement to sexual perversion and child killing (the ancient core practices of the Canaanites that justified their genocide per Leviticus 18) that we destroy civilization with our own hands, and ultimately bring God’s wrath upon ourselves. That belief is strongly bolstered in the example of Northampton, but all of America is quickly falling into the same Marxquito-infested moral swamp.

Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” – a proclamation that doubles as a roadmap of our path to victory through the swamp of lies and death. Speaking life-saving truth is our primary duty: not just the truth of the Gospel, the Good News of the free gift of salvation in Christ Jesus available to all who will accept it. But also the bad news about the consequence of sin. His Word tells us in Ephesians 5:11 to “Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them,” but also adds a warning in Ezekiel 3:17-19: “If I say to the wicked man, ‘You will surely die,’ but you do not warn him or speak out to warn him from his wicked way to save his life, that wicked man will die in his iniquity, and I will hold you responsible for his blood. But if you warn a wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness and his wicked way, he will die in his iniquity, but you will have saved yourself.”

Like the “gay” hoards of Sodom, so intent on raping God’s two witnesses that they continued to claw and scrape at Lot’s door even after being struck blind by God, America’s bloodsucking Marxquitos are utterly relentless. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until God Himself stops them – with the end-times version of fire and brimstone.

Like Lot, however, if we deny reality and try to placate the wicked by offering our children (or passively letting them be indoctrinated with Marxist theology), we lose both their virtue and our own moral authority. There is no consequence-free Hollywood ending to the real life cautionary tale we’re living. There is only the division of saved and lost, determined by spiritual alignment with the Messiah or captivity to the godless Marxquitos – a choice heavily influenced by how well we Christians speak truth to life while there is still time.
