“Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.” —Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the U. S. House
Who Will They Bring with Them?
Father Michael Orsi is the host for “Action for Life.” He produced a nine-minute video where he joins millennial college students in discussing the presidential election. They focused on the question, “Who will they bring with them into power,” and how that could affect America’s future.
Just think about how many people come with the president, their programs, their policies, and the departments they fill! Each person they choose affects the lives of all Americans. There’s the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veteran’s Affairs. Then there’s the Cabinet and the many thousands of government employees who promote programs throughout the country.
Fr. Orsi warns that one of these candidates can be very dangerous to our faith, our freedoms, and our families. He says, “The results of this election will touch us in a very personal way. Therefore, we have to make the right choice.”
Health and Human Services
He goes on to give us just a few examples of areas we need to be concerned about. The person in charge of Health and Human Services will have plenty to say about contraception and abortion. This choice can interfere with our freedoms, especially the freedom of religion. Whereas Trump would choose a devout pro-lifer, Hillary would choose someone like Cecil Richards, the head of Planned Parenthood.
Of course, we must be concerned about the Secretary of Education with the flourishing of common core. Fr. Orsi comments that education filters through every facet of our society, and how a nanny state can gain control over our whole curriculum and indoctrinate children in ways we can never imagine. The damage which could be done, in ways that can change the understanding of faith and family, and take away our freedom itself. Donald Trump has said that he wants to eliminate the Department of Education, but Hillary Clinton would enforce Common Core upon all schools. With Trump, there would be no Department of Education, he would turn it back to the states where it belongs.
The Supreme Court
“Perhaps most importantly,” comments Fr. Orsi, “We must be concerned about the courts in our country.” He comments that, “Many are aware there is one vacancy on the Supreme Court, and certainly there will be more. The court in recent years has become the arbiter of right and wrong in our country. If there is a progressive majority on that court, much of the legislation passed by an unfriendly president, could very much affect our wellbeing. But, there is more than that, there are the appellate courts, and many other lower courts which will be influenced by the person who is elected President of the United States. We can’t afford to make the wrong choice. Our very country depends upon voting correctly this November.”
Fr. Orsi’s comments are profound for today, especially for Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, which has already seen problems with the judiciary in local court.
The Core Problem in Politics Today
In 2004, Phyllis Schlafly’s book, The Supremacists: The Tyranny of Judges and How to Stop It, she presented the core problem in American politics today. There are no checks and balances on judicial power. For the past fifty years, liberal judges have moved beyond the strict interpretation of law to the creation of law. They have become legislators, and have sought to impose their leftist bias on the rest of the community. The rule of law has thus been replaced by the rule of judges: judges who are unelected and unaccountable. It is only too obvious in the lawsuit brought against Eagle Forum’s 501(c)4 entity.
I’ve penned several articles on Eagle Forum in the last year, but in the most recent article, Treachery From Inside Eagle Forum Family, I explained the betrayal of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum by her youngest daughter, Anne Cori, and her cohorts.
The Eagle Forum Lawsuit
The judicial violations are obvious in the lawsuit against Eagle Forum’s 501(c)4 entity. The original suit was filed in April of 2016, and was limited to this one entity of Eagle Forum, the 501(c)4.
It has been suspected that all along this Gang of Six (Anne Cori and the five others on the board) wanted all the other entities of Eagle Forum. The Illinois judge in this case, despite being a republican, actually used the brief presented by Anne Cori’s attorneys, and stated that John Schlafly and Ed Martin had 24 hours to get out of Eagle Forum! There are five entities of Eagle Forum, and the lawsuit is only over one entity!
Quite obviously, this judge overstepped his bounds! Is he colluding with them? Does he not understand what the entire case is all about? Does he not understand that Eagle Forum is more than one entity? Is he stupid? Has he not read through the document. He should know better!
Illinois Judge John B. Barberis has ordered Eagle Forum (Schlafly’s website) to remove all pro-Trump articles posted after April 10, 2016.
This is key, because the judge is implying it is one organization, and it is not! Each of the five entities did not have separate websites, they all posted on the one! This judge is busy doing fund raising for his campaign for judge on a higher court, and Judge Barberis is the lowest rated judge in Illinois.
So, even six weeks after her death, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly is still being attacked by the left, #NeverTrumpers and activist judges.
Kathleen Sullivan, longtime friend and partner of Phyllis Schlafly, said we needed to do this video with Father Orsi. Phyllis would have said, “We need to think of solutions, and how to get around roadblocks; we can’t get bogged down in defending a lawsuit, we have to get around it.” Kathleen has worked with Phyllis for 54 years to save our Republic. Phyllis always taught all of us to be very careful and prudent and persistent, and since Kathleen is on the board, she is also being sued.
Remember Judge Gonzalo Curiel?
Curiel is the democrat judge in charge of the Trump University case and guess who nominated him? Barack Hussein Obama. Do you actually believe there is no bias in his rulings on Trump’s University case?
WikiLeaks, the Window into Hillary’s Mind
Fr. Orsi’s last comments, in this fabulous video, are about WikiLeaks, which shows where we have a window into the mind of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party. We have heard that they are enemies of the Catholic Church; they believe they must undermine the church with progressive secularist groups like Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance of the Common Good, in order to change the teaching of the church.
Please watch Fr. Orsi and these wonderful young millennials as they comment on our upcoming election.
This marvelous priest’s final comments are,
“They would like to have a church that is more democratic; that’s not the way God established His church. Ethics, morality, theology is not done by plebiscite, but it is divinely revealed to us in natural law, and in the supernatural laws that come to us in sacred scripture. Our faith was mocked as being medieval, that we need a Catholic Spring to change peoples’ minds.
These are the same groups who want to get control of education, because they know that real change only comes from the grassroots up. They have no concept of the natural law; the law whereby we can observe creation and see how God has designed it, so that the way a thing is made is the way a thing should act.
By changing this, according to their own concept, we now have abortion on demand, we now have homosexual marriage, and we now have transgender rights, where people of the opposite gender may use locker-room facilities and bathrooms of a sex that is not consistent with their biological makeup. These things are an abomination to Almighty God. They contravene common sense. I believe our young people have a tremendous amount of common sense, that they are reasonable, but they must be guided.
This election is one of the most important elections in the history of America. As a matter of fact, I believe it is the most important. Elections do have consequences, and unless Hillary Clinton is defeated in this election, America as we know it will be no more. I implore all of you, please vote our faith, our family, and our freedom depends on you voting the right way. God bless you.”
This election is our last to save this nation. Those who are standing in the gap to save America have stepped forward, and this is the video that tells the story.
