Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 10

“I often warn people: Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not, but there is an “I” in independence, individuality, and integrity’.” George Carlin

Former Senator Jim DeMint was born in South Carolina in1951. He held the office of United States Representative for South Carolina’s 4th congressional district from 1999 to 2005. DeMint pledged to serve only three terms in the House, so rather than leave politics, in 2003 he announced his run for the Senate seat of outgoing Democrat Ernest Hollings in the 2004 election cycle. DeMint resigned from the Senate on January 1, 2013. When Edwin Fuelner recently retired from Heritage Foundation as president, former neo-con Senator Jim DeMint replaced him as president.

Heritage Foundation

Free Trade, Fair Tax, and Privatization

Jim DeMint is a proponent of free trade, (more jobs leaving America), and why shouldn’t he be? Remember NAFTA was proposed by Heritage Fellow, and CNP member, Richard Allen. The former Senator is also for the privatization of social security, and the Fair Tax, which would end up raising taxes on all Americans, and leading to a Constitutional Convention, despite what proponents say. Link   Those same proponents state that a Constitutional Convention would be necessary to rid us of the 16th amendment (income tax). However, we didn’t need a Constitutional Convention to rid us of the 18th amendment, we simply had another amendment, the 21st, that nullified the 18th. Nevertheless, even the risk of passing an amendment in today’s climate of communism in America is extremely dangerous to our founding document of 1787.

Eliminating Spousal Benefit of Social Security

DeMint’s Heritage Foundation is also proposing eliminating the spousal benefit of social security. Link In other words, many women choose to take their husband’s social security, rather than their own, because most men make more money in their lifetimes than do women. Rachel Greszler, entitlements policy analyst for the Heritage Foundation, said the spousal benefit for Social Security has become outdated because many women have worked long enough to get their own payments. Greszler said figures showing women make 77 cents for every dollar that men make are faulty. She contended the accurate pay disparity is between five and seven cents. I would beg to differ with her, and I’d like to see where she found her statistics. These are the kind of egregious promotions the Heritage Foundation makes. For baby boomers, this could be a devastating loss of income for surviving widows.

The Balanced Budget Amendment

In the July, 7, 2011 issue of the Wall Street Journal, then Senator Jim DeMint joined with that other bastion of neo-conservative policy, then Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine, to urge a balanced budget amendment (BBA) in an article entitled, The Only Reform That Will Restrain Spending. The title is a total lie. Of course these lawmakers want a BBA! It would legalize their unconstitutional spending. Spending is limited by the “enumerated powers” listed in the Constitution. They don’t address the cause of the problem: Congress spends where they have no constitutional authority to spend. The BBAs don’t eliminate the unconstitutional spending; and they place no limits on the amount of the unconstitutional spending. The Congress will just continue to increase taxes on the American people to “balance” their budget. Bad idea! The BBA leads to the opening of a Constitutional Convention, which would be the final death knell to the Republic. The BBA tactic for a Con-Con has been used since the 70s. See Publius Huldah’s articles on same. Link 

Membership in “The Family”

DeMint is a member of Doug Coe’s secretive “The Fellowship” or “The Family,” which has such members of so-called opposite political stances as DeMint and Hillary Clinton. Link Other members include Heritage’s Edwin Meese, and former Vice President, Al Gore.  Link Again, see Constance Cumbey’s five part article entitled, “The Family, and its hijacking of Evangelicalism.”

Jeff Sharlet wrote an expose on this political and religious group, entitled, The Family. He also had an article in Harper’s Magazine, in February of 2012, about the Family, entitled, Jesus Plus Nothing.

From Sharlet’s website, it states: 

Sharlet follows the story back to Abraham Vereide, an itinerant preacher who in 1935 organized a small group of businessmen sympathetic to European fascism, fusing the far right with his own polite but authoritarian faith. From that core, Vereide built an international network of fundamentalists who speak the language of establishment power, a “family” that thrives to this day. In public, they host the National Prayer Breakfast; in private they preach a gospel of “biblical capitalism,” military might, and American empire. Citing Hitler, Lenin, and Mao as model leaders, the Family’s current leader, Doug Coe, declares, “we work with power where we can, and build new power where we can’t.”

In his book The Family, Sharlet said Fellowship leader Doug Coe preached a leadership model and a personal commitment to Jesus Christ comparable to the blind devotion that Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Pol Pot demanded from their followers. In one videotaped lecture series in 1989, Coe said,

“Hitler, Goebbels and Himmler were three men. Think of the immense power these three men had…. But they bound themselves together in an agreement…. Jesus said, ‘You have to put me before other people. And you have to put me before yourself.’ Hitler, that was the demand to be in the Nazi party. You have to put the Nazi party and its objectives ahead of your own life and ahead of other people.”

In the same series, Coe also compared Jesus’ teachings to the Red Guard during the Chinese Cultural Revolution:

“I’ve seen pictures of young men in the Red Guard of China…. They would bring in this young man’s mother and father, lay her on the table with a basket on the end, he would take an axe and cut her head off…. They have to put the purposes of the Red Guard ahead of the mother-father-brother-sister — their own life! That was a covenant. A pledge. That was what Jesus said.”

Networked Organizations of “The Family” 

World Vision International was one of the early organizations in the network of The Family. The Family was started by Abraham Vereide in Seattle in 1935. World Vision was started in California in 1950. The headquarters of World Vision are now in little old Federal Way, just 10-15 miles south of Seattle. Here is World Vision’s 2012-990, with over a trillion dollars in holdings.

According to Amnesty International News, World Vision International has endorsed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It claims to foster opportunities to help reduce conflict levels and to contribute to the peaceful resolution of hostilities and reconciliation of disputes. They also joined the United Nations peacekeeping efforts to help those affected by civil war. World Vision also started to openly promote the international ban on land mines.

Wilberforce Foundation 2012-990 filings confirm that Wilberforce is related to and shares common management with the Fellowship Foundation.

Traditional Values Coalition uses the C Street Center of The Family for “faith-based diplomacy” in the fight against what TVC’s head, Louis P. Sheldon, calls the “Marxist/Leftist/Homosexual/Islamic coalition.”

CNP member, Sheldon was an associate of fellow CNP member, Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist jailed for influence peddling. Sheldon lobbied members of the US Congress to kill the Internet Gambling Prohibition Act. Abramoff directed his client, e-Lottery, to pay $25,000 to the Traditional Values Coalition.

TVC has also been linked to the Mariana Islands worker abuse scandal. The organization was used by Abramoff to pay for the trip of then-Congressman Bob Schaffer to visit the island. The Denver Post reported that the TVC paid the $13,000 travel bill for the trip, organized by Abramoff’s lobbying firm.

Abramoff’s lobbying team would prepare questions and “factual backup” for friendly lawmakers. Trips to the island for congressmen and staff would be a key tool to “build permanent friends,” the memo said. The congressional junkets to the Mariana Islands were designed to build support in Congress among Republican lawmakers to block labor and immigration legislation for the islands, which had been found to harbor squalid working conditions and abusive labor practices.

The Oak Initiative, founded by hyper charismatic, Rick Joyner of Morningstar Ministries, has a distinctly Dominionist/7 Mountains agenda “to raise up effective leaders for all of the dominant areas of influence in the culture, including: government, business, education, arts and entertainment, family services, media, and the church.” Joyner is heavily into biblical mysticism. Link It also has a Board full of Dominionist Religious Right activists including Janet Porter, Lou Sheldon, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Cindy Jacobs (head prophetess of the New Apostolic Reformation), Lt.Gen. W.G. “Jerry” Boykin (now VP of CNP member and UN-NGO Tony Perkin’s Family Research Council), and Marc Nuttle.

The Family and Os Hillman

The Family, aka The Fellowship, rent their C Street property where so many key legislators live, from Youth With a Mission, (YWAM). Doug Coe’s sons both work for YWAM. Here is Os Hillman’s Dominionist video that lays out The Plan to “Reclaim the 7 Mountains for the Kingdom of God.” It names Bill Bright of Campus Crusade, Francis Schaeffer of L’Abri in Lausanne, and Loren Cunningham of YWAM as sharing a common supernatural vision that started the movement.  The cross links with Doug Coe’s Family/Fellowship and the CNP are unmistakable. Please note however, that this video is put up by Dominionist, Os Hillman, who helped launch the 7 mountains movement. Link

I’ve been told by researcher and writer, Sarah Leslie, that this story, regarding the vision of Bright and Cunningham, was promulgated by Os Hillman, and that had Bill Bright actually had this vision, everyone at Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) would have known about it. One of the authors of the following articles exposing this fabricated story actually worked for CCC at the time. See these articles, Seven Apostolic Spheres, Neo-Kuyperian Spheres, and Who Invented Dominionism.

And here is a letter from Os Hillman and guess where he just came from?!top

Tuesday, May 20 2014Dear I have just returned from Washington, DC. I attended the Council on National Policy (CNP) meeting, a gathering of 400 of the top national political conservative leaders in America. I was invited by a leader in the organization as a guest. I returned with hope for America by what others are doing that are in the trenches, fighting for America’s values, yet very sober that we are in a critical period in our nation. There are many change agents in this group. I met many in top leadership – congressmen, senators, judicial watchdogs, state representatives, and those in business. Met with president of Focus on the Family (Tom Minnery) on Public Policy, Gary Bauer, Jeff Johnson, CEO National Religious Broadcasters, and many others. Spoke briefly at a 30 person special luncheon for a group called Conservatives of Faith on the topic of using the 7 cultural mountains as a strategy for impacting our nation and the vision of Renewal of America. Bob Williamson (Renewal of America) and I had many strategic meetings sharing our vision to raise up 100 million Christians to pray, unify and stand in the gap for our nation. Some of the speakers at CNP were Newt Gingrich, George Barna, John Fund, National Review Columnist/American Spectator, Mark Levine (conservative radio talk show personality), Thomas Fitton, President, Judicial Watch, Inc and many, many others (this man discovered the latest Bengahzi email that led to special committee being formed). One group we are beginning to work with is the Congressional Prayer Caucus made up of Congressmen who gather to pray in room 219 at the Capitol before every vote. This caucus is being spread to state governments, now 14 established. They are partnering with our Renewal of America initiative assisting with the governmental center of influence board. There were many reports on what is taking place in our nation. The man who discovered the email that shows the whole Bengahzi talking points scandal now traces back to the White House core leadership shared in depth about what is taking place and how the White House is stonewalling the entire discovery process. They have to file lawsuits to get what they want. He told us to expect more things to come. He is also involved in the IRS discovery process and told us to expect more to come from that too. Leadership is optimistic that more conservatives will come into office in the midterms elections. George Barna spoke to us and gave us a snapshot of how the American Dream is radically changing. George Barna, American Culture & Faith Institute 2014 research We are at a pivotal point in American history The American dream was once:

  • Work hard
  • Own a home
  • Fulfill marriage and family life
  • Take advantage of opportunities
  • Practice your faith of choice
  • Balance freedom and responsibility

Today there is a new dream taking place:

  • Work enough to get by
  • Customized family experience
  • Be spiritual but not religious
  • Demand freedom and rights
  • Entitled to personalized moral code
  • Situational truth
  • Advocate the new virtues
  • Happiness: comfort, convenience choices, connections, experiences
  • Unimaginable shift in our values

(This is not what the founding fathers envisioned). He did a survey among conservatives and found their attitudes as follows:

  • 84% concerned about the future
  • 99% country is headed in wrong direction
  • 99% govt is doing too much
  • 90% angry about the state of America
  • 94% morals and values are declining
  • 71% ready to engage in creating significant change

Many of our core foundations are eroding in America because of the most liberal president in the history of this nation. Yet, we know that the buck stops with us and we must ask for God’s mercy on our nation. We are in a process of judgment right now; it remains to be seen the level of judgment we will experience. God gives a nation a leader that mirrors the moral condition of the people. We must engage the body of Christ to pray, humble ourselves and engage in the battle for righteousness in our nation. Thanks for standing in the gap with me for our nation.

God bless you, Os

A Council for National Policy meeting! So, we have the Dominionists from Doug Coe’s The Family, mixed in with the 7 Mountain Mandate Dominionists, all joining with the entire political neo-con Trotskyite right in the Council for National Policy. And there’s Jim DeMint right in the middle of it.

In Part 11, we’ll look at Heritage’s former Vice Chairman and benefactor, Richard Mellon Scaife.

 

Ted Cruz is No Larry McDonald – Part 3

“We, like those in all emergent totalitarian states, have been mentally damaged by a carefully orchestrated historical amnesia, a state-induced stupidity. We increasingly do not remember what it means to be free. And because we do not remember, we do not react with appropriate ferocity when it is revealed that our freedom has been taken from us. The structures of the corporate state must be torn down. Its security apparatus must be destroyed. And those who defend corporate totalitarianism, including the leaders of the two major political parties, fatuous academics, pundits and a bankrupt press, must be driven from the temples of power. Mass street protests and prolonged civil disobedience are our only hope. A failure to rise up—which is what the corporate state is counting upon—will see us enslaved.”….Chris Hedges

Cruz and the Phony Religious Right

The September 8, 2013 Politico story from Stephanie Simon documented U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’ ties to pseudo-historian David Barton (one of the more influential national middle-aged leaders on the Christian right). Let’s take a quick look at David Barton. He is an informal advisor to neo-cons, Mike Huckabee who had endorsed fellow neo-con, Lamar Alexander for his third term in the Senate,  Huckabee also believes Americans should be forced at gunpoint to listen to David Barton (video link), and fellow pro-Dominionist (via her close affiliations, with Francis Schaeffer and John Eidsmoe  Link) Michele Bachmann, as well as Third Waver, and Alvin and Heidi Toffler supporter, Newt Gingrich. Barton’s endorsement of Cruz was widely seen as a big boost for his upstart campaign to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate. Barton also campaigned for Florida Senator Marco Rubio in 2010 and has long backed Texas Governor Rick Perry. Perry’s ties to the Dominionist New Apostolic Reform were evident at his August, 2011 prayer fest prior to his announcement as a presidential candidate. Link Mr. Barton, whose academic degree is in Christian Education from Oral Roberts University, has been labeled a biased amateur who cherry-picks quotes from history and the Bible. Both secular critics and Christian scholars have denounced Barton as a fraud who manipulates and misrepresents history to serve his political goals. In his book, The Jefferson Lies, he portrayed Jefferson as an orthodox Christian. Link

From Thomas Kidd at World News Service:

Jay W. Richards, senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, and author with James Robison of Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It’s Too Late, says in recent months he has grown increasingly troubled about Barton’s writings, so he asked 10 conservative Christian professors to assess Barton’s work. Their response was negative. Some examples: Glenn Moots of Northwood University wrote that Barton in The Jefferson Lies is so eager to portray Jefferson as sympathetic to Christianity that he misses or omits obvious signs that Jefferson stood outside “orthodox, creedal, confessional Christianity.”

A second professor, Glenn Sunshine of Central Connecticut State University, said that Barton’s characterization of Jefferson’s religious views is “unsupportable.” A third, Gregg Frazer of The Master’s College, evaluated Barton’s video America’s Godly Heritage and found many of its factual claims dubious, such as a statement that “52 of the 55 delegates at the Constitutional Convention were ‘orthodox, evangelical Christians.'” Richards emphasizes that he and the scholars he consulted about Barton are politically conservative evangelicals or Catholics. They largely agree with Barton’s belief that Christian principles played a major role in America’s founding, but Richards argues that Barton’s books and videos are full of “embarrassing factual errors, suspiciously selective quotes, and highly misleading claims.”

A full-scale, newly published critique of Barton is coming from Professors Warren Throckmorton and Michael Coulter of Grove City College, a largely conservative Christian school in Pennsylvania. Their book Getting Jefferson Right: Fact Checking Claims about Our Third President (Salem Grove Press), argues that Barton “is guilty of taking statements and actions out of context and simplifying historical circumstances.”

Because Barton’s research has often been shown to be in error, he has become a favorite target of skeptics who point to his errors and use it as ammunition in attacking believers. In short, carelessness or lack of integrity is counterproductive to the cause we would advance.

As well, in a shocking interview with Jon Stewart, in May of 2011, Barton is totally comfortable with Shariah law and claims it is compatible with our Constitution. Link

Last November, 2013, David Barton sat in for Glenn Beck on his program. He spent the entire hour on the Constitution, and on an Article V call for a convention. Like many of the phony right, as well as the George Soros’ leftists, Barton is pushing a con-con. Link

It is not surprising that David Barton is a Cruz supporter, as he and Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, are dominionists who believe in the Seven Mountains mandate.  This fits well with both Barton’s and Cruz’s belief systems wherein a Christian theocracy should rule. Here and here are definitions of Dominionism/Reconstructionism.

Reverend Rafael Cruz

Rafael Cruz is a pastor based in North Texas serving as the Director of Purifying Fire Ministries, ministering in the U.S., Mexico and Central America. Purifying Fire Ministries was founded by Suzanne Hinn, ex-wife and then wife again of Benny Hinn. The Hinns are preaching heretical doctrines, dealing in faux emotions and invented manifestations of the Holy Spirit at the most convenient and opportune fundraising moments. They also know where the money is today, and have hitched their wagons to the New Apostolic Reform, or Dominionism.

The Bible does not promise a miracle-working revival at the end of the church age before the return of Christ. It promises, rather, great deception (Matthew 24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:7-10; Revelation 13:13,14). Many gullible people are deceived by miracles, but the Bible warns that miracles can be counterfeited. As we see in the above cited verses, every time the New Testament mentions miracles at the end of this age, it refers to them as deceptions. Miracles do not impart faith. Most of the people who witnessed Christ’s miracles did not believe. Faith comes only by hearing the Word of God, the Bible — “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). Hebrews chapter 11 also tells us that faith comes through God’s Word. It is the miracles that are recorded in Scripture that give faith (John 20:30,31).

I could find nothing that indicated Rafael Cruz has a divinity degree, and Purifying Fire Ministries apparently has no church buildings. Rafael is also allegedly a professor of Bible and Theology, and the president of Kingdom Translation Services. Again, I could find no documented evidence of where he is a professor and where he went to school/seminary.

Senator Cruz has kept his 74 year old pastor father involved with his political shop, using him not merely as a confidant and stand-in, but as a special envoy. He is Cruz’s preferred introductory speaker, his best messenger with evangelicals, and his favorite on-air sidekick. Ted Cruz says his firebrand father doesn’t speak for him, but the senator’s aide is booking Rafael Cruz’s speaking gigs. Link

In an August 2012 sermon at an Irving, Texas, mega church that helped elect Ted Cruz to the United States Senate, Rafael Cruz, indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society. This is an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests,” thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth,” from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers. That would be particularly nice…especially to have Soros/Gates and other wealthy elitists’ monies transferred to Christians.

The Seven Mountains mandate refers to Christians being instructed to conquer the seven “mountains of culture” that have seldom been in Christian control since the Reformation. These seven mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family, and religion. All this started back in the 70s with two charter members of the Council for National Policy, Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ, and Loren Cunningham of Youth With a Mission (YWAM). As the story goes, Cunningham and Bright each had a spiritual experience in which the vision was imparted to them by God of “seven chief categories of society” where the church needed to “concentrate” to “turn the nations back to God.” Link

Here is a video of Rafael Cruz describing the “great transfer of wealth” and the role of anointed “kings” in various sectors of society, including government, who are to “bring the spoils of war to the priests.” Jesus never emphasized the need for money in preaching the gospel, in sending His own out, or even in their day to day affairs.

What Raphael Cruz didn’t say, was that Ted Cruz was subsequently blessed and anointed by prominent dominionist pastors, in effect as a “king” in the political/governmental sphere, at a special blessing ceremony at the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, at a July 19th-20th, 2013 rally designed to draw pastors into politics. See this video

Coffee with Kissinger

One would think Raphael Cruz would inform his son about Soviet Agent Kissinger, but apparently that was not the case. Senator Ted Cruz uploaded this image to his official Facebook page on January 29th of himself having coffee with Henry Kissinger, with the tagline, “Honored to share a few moments with Dr. Kissinger and hear his thoughts on the challenges facing our nation.”

Cruz and Kissinger

Cruz undoubtedly would agree with Kissinger on trade. He says in the below video that he is for “fast tracking” trade agreements and supports Obama doing same. Apparently Cruz cares little about American jobs, and even less about American sovereignty. Video

Sleeping With the Enemy

Ted Cruz met his wife, Heidi, while working on the George W. Bush presidential campaign of 2000. Cruz’s wife is currently head of the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division of Goldman, Sachs & Co. Link Check out Matt Taibbi’s article in Rolling Stone magazine, “The People vs. Goldman Sachs.” Ms. Cruz began her career as an investment banker with JPMorgan in New York, focusing on international structured finance and subsequently on Latin America mergers and acquisitions. Heidi also worked in the White House for CFR member, Condoleezza Rice. She has a Harvard MBA, was raised a Seventh Day Adventist, and is a vegetarian. Ted is on Heidi’s Goldman Sachs’ health care plan.

Heidi is also on the Council on Foreign Relations’ infamous “North American Union” task force and is co-author of same. Link   Heidi Cruz is a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). See this map of the CFR.

Conclusions

I would love to write an article about true old-right conservatives who are staunch Constitutionalists and are fighting to restore the Republic. Sadly, this is not the case. Anyone who still believes we are safe with men or women who have an “R” behind their names has not been paying attention to the presidents and Congress criminals who have given us the unconstitutional and draconian laws in the last 100 or more years.

Just look back a few decades. Do you remember Bob Dole’s failure to repeal the Assault Weapons Ban? Link How about George H.W. Bush’s famous lie, “Read my lips, no new taxes.”? Link   We are now stuck with W’s Patriot Act signed in 2001. Link Just think about George W. Bush’s bailout packages which cost American taxpayers thousands of dollars per citizen….Link The RNC runs presidential candidates like John McCain, and Willard Romney, neither of whom have ever felt it necessary to follow the Constitution. There are no jobs in America today, the manufacturing industry is gone…why? Because Republican President George H.W. Bush formalized NAFTA in 1986. In 1994, Bill Clinton was President when it went into effect.

Those mentioned, along with the majority of Republican congressmen and women have not had the interests of the American people in their hearts or minds. I keep hearing them referred to as RINO’s, but they are in fact, neo-conservative Trotskyites.

Forty or fifty years ago or more, those who have become leaders in today’s Republican party drifted away from Trotskyism and began to identify themselves as democratic socialists. Still later, under the guise of neo-cons Irving Kristol and William F. Buckley, who emasculated true old right conservatism, they slithered into the Republican party as “moderates.” They stole the name of “conservative” and seized intellectual control of the true conservatives, as well as the entire Republican party.

Leon Trotsky must not be ignored. Trotsky, unlike Stalin and Lenin, favored the slow and patient imposition of Marxist socialism without murders and gulags. Trotsky wished for the people to “choose” Marxism, rather than having it forced upon them. Irving Kristol, father of Bill Kristol, stated, “I regard myself as lucky to have been a young Trotskyite and I have not a single bitter memory.”

The current followers of Trotskyite socialism and internationalism are the neo-conservatives. Most have no objection to steering America away from personal freedom and national independence and literally undermining and eroding the people’s freedom. There are several books which expose the reality of the Republican neo-con Trotskyites. Undeniably the best, is John McManus’s brilliant book, “William F. Buckley, Pied Piper for the Establishment.” This book is so well documented, you will want to keep it in your library for reference.

As for Ted Cruz, his list of supporters and affiliations should give any true old-right conservative Constitutionalist pause. Unfortunately, without money and connections, honest men and women will find it very difficult to attain any political office. Nevertheless, when one sells one’s soul to attain the political office or power, they are then owned by those who put them there. Ted Cruz is no different.
