“Satan is the great deceiver; we know that, but this means that self-proclaimed satanists, occultists, Wiccans, etc. are his weakest soldiers! They are and always will be part of the subculture. Most people look at them, recognize them and look away. Satan’s most effective warriors are in the mainstream: Misguided, apathetic Joe and Jane Schmo’s who work in the office next to yours. They live “normal” lives. But their minds are deceived and their lives are permeated by subtle, socially acceptable, ungodly attitudes. Such “innocent satanists” have the greatest influence in our world. Is it possible that some of satan’s strongest influence comes even through members of Christ’s church?” —Jeffrey Bryant
H. L. Mencken (born 1880 – died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920, edition: “As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.” —H. L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
Ben Franklin was right when he stated, “We’ve given you a Republic, if you can keep it.” We haven’t kept it, and the total destruction is almost complete. Every day our state and federal governments pass more egregious and abusive laws negating our God given freedoms and the Bill of Rights. The speed at which our Constitution is being destroyed is impossible to keep up with, much less trying to urge fellow citizens to stand up against this travesty.
In an email I received recently, someone mentioned that we must educate the American people. What do they think the old-right conservatives have been doing for the last 100 years? Personally, I don’t believe the majority of today’s American citizens give a damn about what the local, state, or federal government is doing. Why? Because the majority of them don’t have a clue of what our God given and Constitutionally guaranteed rights are, much less the ones we’ve already lost.
Tea Parties have acted stupidly and incorporated with 501(c)3’s and 4’s, thus negating their original intent and effectiveness, and willingly accepting government chains. From before their formation, the change agents were waiting to infiltrate and neutralize, and only a few have remained true to their cause. For more information, read my four part article, The Tea Parties.
Churches are so frightened of being involved with anything political which might jeopardize their own 501(c)3 tax exemption, that the pulpits are weak kneed, lily livered, pusillanimous cowards. None of them could possibly come close to the political sermons of the American founding era, much less preach sound Biblical doctrine. Is it any wonder we’re in the mess we’re in when the last best defense against the armies of darkness, – the church – is silent?
One of the local Tea Party leaders recently spoke to a group about his Tea Party being targeted for an audit by the IRS. First I must ask, why would a group of people, who know the government is corrupt, file for federal tax exempt status from that very government? There are restrictions as well as controls, and for a small group of people who gather together twice monthly, this plays right into the hands of the out-of-control government. This leader said he’s on his knees praying all the time, but it doesn’t do any good. I can tell him, and the rest of the Tea Parties why! They refuse to discuss social issues. The media keeps asking these group leaders about their position on the most basic human right of all — LIFE! The response? “Abortion is not my agenda!”
Well just what is the TP agenda anyway? The number one topic today is UN Agenda 21, which truly encompasses all of the other topics, including LIFE. The top UN A21 goal is population reduction, and we all know the Obama administration has plans to push Americans out of the suburbs and into the big cities. [Link]
Rosa Koire, Michael Shaw, and the John Birch Society have all been educating America’s citizens via the Tea Parties and other groups. Yet, we still cannot seem to awaken the masses to attend and disrupt the smart growth forums, or go to the county commission, and city council meetings to stay the onslaught of the planners in destroying our way of life.
The local TP believes they’ll win by fighting the out-of-control spending, saying, “We must cut off the head of the snake.” Yet, in 2010, Tennessee elected Bill Haslam as Governor, another phony neo-conservative. One of the first items on Haslam’s agenda was to promote the Internet Sales Tax. The local TP wouldn’t even let me speak to the subject. [Link]
Most of the small business people thought that making internet sites collect sales taxes would help their businesses. This is how foolish today’s electorate is, buying into this false “fairness” tax. Rather than demanding the county and state drop the taxes on small businesses, as well as the never ending fees for permits, these people believe taxing the entire nation will level the playing field. Instead, the small businesses like mine, and thousands of others, especially on internet, will be forced out-of-business. The people will have fewer choices in where to shop, unemployment will rise, and the small stores who carried specialty items will be gone.
The large-box stores are all for this tax! Why? Because it eliminates competition! There will be fewer internet stores to choose from, and the big-box stores will still sell items at lower prices than our local businesses. Once again, the tax and spend politicians have fooled the stupid, dumbed down, electorate who listen to the talking heads! Harold Black, professor emeritus of finance at the University of Tennessee explained the lies of this tax perfectly. You might also want to check his blog spot.
As for educating the masses, if the people don’t know by now they never will. It’s too late in the game to believe we have time to educate on all of it. There are good people who could run for office, but they lack money. The active citizens would rather spend their money driving to DC to a useless flag waving rally, spending their money at hotels and restaurants, rather than taking those funds and putting them behind good men and women running for office. How many have gotten involved enough to be precinct captains to watch the voting process where they could possibly stop fraud? Stupid is as stupid does. Watching Dancing With The Stars and sports is more important.
I’ve poured tons of money into good candidates. Occasionally one of these candidates will win, but more often, they lose because the so-called conservatives will not open their pocketbooks and do without something in order to help save our Republic. We are lazy and lost, and most are too apathetic to care. They don’t even realize that we are at the precipice of destruction.
Remember all the right wing groups who got together and formed the Council for National Policy (CNP) in 1981? They said they formed it to fight the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), but their first membership roster contained five CFR members on their board. They have snuggled with the enemy for decades. The CNP still has CFR members, pro-Islamic members, Dominionist/Reconstructionists, many who took money from cultist Sun Myung Moon, pro-second amendment groups, ones who promised to stop abortion, and those who promised to squelch the homosexual agenda. So they sent fund raising letters to the grassroots folks telling us they’d fight the battles for us. People believed them and sent in their money.
Here is an example of the tactics used by two of the CNP charter members supposedly fighting for second amendment rights. In the article, “The Merchant of Fear,” by Jim Halpin and Paul de Armond, from 1994 and 1995, they stated,
“Nearly everybody gets direct-response mail, letters from charities, political campaigns, and all sorts of other causes, asking the recipient to mail back a donation. Often they appeal to one’s charitable instincts or sense of civic responsibility. This is not the tack that Alan Gottlieb takes. “The letters he composes,” says Outside magazine, “are not long on subtlety or literary polish, but they are extremely adept at pinpointing the recipients’ deepest anxieties and eliciting floods of righteous indignation.”
Gottlieb does not disagree. In Trashing the Economy, the 1993 book he and his co-author, Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise (CDFE) Vice President, Ron Arnold, write with startling frankness that:
“The message of the direct mail letter must appeal to three base emotions; Fear, Hate and Revenge..”
“[The] fund raising mailer must present you with a crisis — a problem won’t do…That crisis must frighten you…If you are not frightened, you won’t send money..”
“Then the direct mail letter must present you with a bogeyman against whom to focus your anger..”
“Once you’ve been frightened and made to hate the bogeyman, the successful direct mail appeal must offer you a way to get revenge against the bogeyman — the payoff for your contribution. The more soul-satisfying the revenge, the better the letter pulls.”
“All this must be dressed up in an appeal that appears to have a high moral tone, but which — without you realizing it — works on your lower emotions.”
Over these many years, all these groups have become quite adept at soliciting funds from the grassroots Americans. They have feathered their nests quite lavishly from the donations of people who cared about their country and the direction we were headed. Now, everything they claimed they were fighting has gotten progressively worse. In 2005, Kelo vs. The City of New London supreme court decision forever changed the Constitutional definition of eminent domain. The Supremes latest “opinion” states, “federal law against gay marriage is unconstitutional,” and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is eliminated. We see horrible life-snuffing, baby murdering, physicians like Kermit Gosnell, who murdered babies born alive after his late term abortions. We see numerous false flags perpetrated to eliminate the very teeth of our God given right to defend ourselves. What has the phony rightwing Council for National Policy stopped?
People could educate themselves, but few will even watch a video for more than eight minutes, and hardly anyone reads anymore. Sound bites are what they listen to, all put out by the MSM. There are TP leaders who have called me for information, and I’ve sent them everything I could, but they never read one word…why? Because we are now in the 3rd generation of the deliberately dumbed down and most cannot read well, others are too lazy. It’s a sad state of affairs, but it’s all true.
I pray the small band of old-right conservatives can make a difference, but I really have my doubts. I’ve worked since I was 16 trying to save my beloved country. I’m tired, and I never see youth at any meetings, whether it be commission or city council, or speakers at gatherings which we need to hear. It’s only those over 50, for the most part. Think how easily it will be for the evil ones once Obamacare rids the world of those of us who remember true freedom. It breaks my heart! Even though I’ll never give up fighting for righteousness, and having done ALL, will STAND, I’m weary…and I don’t see many others picking up the torch.
God’s hand is no longer on America. And why should it be? We murder our most innocent in their mother’s wombs, and we murder our elderly by starvation/dehydration and pain cocktails that put them in a death coma. We’ve kicked our wonderful God out of everything in America, especially our government schools…
• but it’s okay for a Texas teacher to force the children to dress in Islamic costumes for an entire day and pray to Allah. [Link]
• It’s okay for full body cavity searches by police on Texas highways. [Link]
• It’s okay to draw blood from suspected Tennessee drunk drivers. [Link]
• And, in case you missed it, the Supreme Court also made a ruling on lawsuits against drug companies for fraud, mislabeling, side effects and accidental death. From now on, 80 percent of all drugs are exempt from legal liability. [Link]
It’s time for those of us who have been fighting for decades, to get down on our knees, repent for our nation, and plead for God’s mercy. We are now a communist nation led by a Marxist Muslim dictator who has nearly completed his American “hope and change.”
If we don’t soon rise up as a nation, we’ll be groveling in the dirt to the masters. Dear God, help us!
