“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful…” – George Orwell
Being in ministry and traveling as much as we do, we have the opportunity to see and meet a lot of people and in the process, we notice what it is that people feed upon. And let me tell you, this explains why this country is in the condition that it is in today.
When you are on an airplane, a bus or a train you see what people are feeding upon, they are feeding upon gossip magazines or maybe they are playing poker on their phones or perhaps viewing a filthy movie on the back of one of the airplane seats (Hosea 8:7). You can rest assured that a majority of them who are feeding on this garbage are them that continually complain about what’s wrong with their country rather than standing up and fighting for the country that they say they love (Matthew 15:8). And of course, everyone that we see or meet across the country is surely involved with politics in one way or another; for we all live politics. But I have to ask, who is it that you live unto (Matthew 6:24)?
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." -2 Corinthians 6:14-18
Many in America today justify their standing (1 Corinthians 10:12) as Christian-conservative patriots by holding to secularists such as Mark Levin, Laura Ingram, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh or Ben Shapiro, etc. This may explain why we as a country are in so much trouble. It's not because of these talking heads (The best that the Christian conservatives have to offer?) so much as it is the Americans that have forsaken the Word of God and the US Constitution.
“The Bible is the rock upon which our Republic rests” -President Andrew Jackson
These conservative talking heads (Yesterday's liberals) do not make reference to biblical and constitutional laws exposing the criminals in the Church and in politics to bring about much needed resolve through justice (Psalm 9:16; Isaiah 51:4).
As a matter of fact, it is these talking head conservative spin doctors that are the very ones fueling the narratives that secure the establishment of which Americans claim they are sick and tired of. Furthermore, they individually define out as to being the very controlled opposition (Keeping the conservatives in order) that is needed to keep pushing the agenda forward, for they are no threat to the establishment that they make claim to be exposing (Romans 3:20).
Let us start out with the dazed and confused Ben Shapiro, who not only denies the Christ but believed that Jesus was a Jew who led a revolt against the Romans and got killed just like a lot of Jews who were crucified for the same thing.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" -Jeremiah 17:9
Apparently, Ben knows more than the very God that he declares to believe in outside of the Savior that was and is sent on his behalf.
Oh, how it stands true when Jesus said, “He came unto his own, and his own received him not” (John 1:11).
Wisdom will not long hold a seat in the head of that man who has yielded up his heart to folly.
What about Glenn Beck? In his confusion, he goes on the air with his panel of hand-picked guests that are calling out radical Muslim Ilhan Omar’s subversive crimes who, without a doubt, is playing a very dangerous game in attacking the American system of government merely to overthrow and to conquer. This no one can deny, not even Ilhan who is telling you through her actions (action speaks louder than words) what she is all about.
Yet, one panel member tells the listening and viewing audience that they need to temper down the rhetoric in dealing with her lawlessness (Revelation 3:16). Is this somehow a game? How does this make any sense? Maybe these spineless individuals on this panel, along with Beck, should take the time to understand that hundreds of thousands of Americans have fought, bled and died fighting against the very crimes that this panel member, in particular, is attempting to condition the American people to submit to, namely, the likes of radicals such as Ilhan Omar. How un-American!
In other words, this panel member is saying that freedom is free and that freedom will remain without a fight, not so. So then, I ask what is the difference between him and Ilhan Omar being enemies to this country? There isn’t one. He thinks that talk is going to get the job done when it will not, just ask Ilhan Omar.
What about Rush Limbaugh, a professing Christian, who has been married four times and divorced three times. Rush might want to read Matthew 5:32. "Adulterers have no inheritance into the kingdom of Heaven" (1Corinthians 6:9). At his last wedding, Rush hired sodomite (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13) Elton John to play for $1,000,000. You heard me right - one million dollars!
People must come to terms with the fact that these conservative talking heads are financially fed by staying loyal to their sponsors not the American people, and how do they do that, by staying on cue as to what it is that they can and cannot talk about. This is how they make their millions (James 4:4) and you will find that where their sponsors are, there are their golden calves (Exodus 32:1-23).
To prove the point, just last week, Rush reported that Michele Obama is the most admired woman in America. Who told him that? He's quoting the same media that 94% of the American people say they do not believe.
These conservative talking heads are nothing but mere "Enquiring minds need to know gossip" (Acts 17:18). They are simply conveying to their base the same message that the liberals are to their bases except by the personalities that people adhere to the most. No wonder Jesus told us to beware of the leaven of the Herodians (Mark 8:15). These are the blind leading the blind (Matthew 15:14) driving Americans into the ditch.
These talking heads say the right things to them that do not know the difference. I am not saying that they have not done good things, but I am saying that they are not the standard (John 14:6), but like lying and corrupt politicians, they are no different than those they complain about because they are securing their positions, as well as the corrupt politicians' positions, and in the end, solidifying the establishment that again, everyone is complaining about.
Yet, they live by continuously feeding the error of politicians and hypocrisies as nothing more than just talk. And why? It's because to go any further, would be condemning and judgmental, at least to them that refuse to correct themselves (John 3:19-21). In turn, it lowers the honor of the sacrifice given (John 3:16) which was paid for our liberty and our God-given rights to a mere sportsmanlike conduct on a field. Let me remind you that this is not a game.
These conservatives talking heads are nothing more than controlled opposition. They are not a threat to the establishment that they continue to feed into and promote. Yet, as they say, the show must go on, and so it does.
“As long as you remember that if you get involved in politics, you have to be very careful that your leader is Allah. You get involved in politics because politics are a weapon to use in the cause of Islam.” –Siraj Wahhaj
No matter how many times one tells of the affiliations of terror-tied Muslim groups in America like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), many look on as if what you are saying is somehow fictitious or even untrue.
(Editor’s note: The above statement is a factual quote from former CAIR affairs coordinator Sadiqq Abu Osman. For additional context, Sadiqq, was a young teenager when he wrote the post on FB. Many years later he was hired at CAIR but has since left. Approx. a year after Sadiqq left CAIR the above post was uncovered in FB archives (it has now since been deleted.) CAIR responded and basically said, “We didn’t know this FB post existed when we hired him, alas, this is all moot since he no longer works with us. But, if he did work with us, we would fire him.” Which may or may not be true, but that's what they wrote.)
“CAIR officials or former officials have been arrested on charges related to terrorism yet all it offers is silence and stonewalling in discussing what are its real motives.” -Paul Weyrich
You have heard the saying, "truth is stranger than fiction" (Jeremiah 5:20) and sad to say, this is the case with many today.
Friends, I am not speaking here to a third world country. I am speaking to America.
Remember all of the conspiracy theorists (Jeremiah 11:9) that were demonized about 50 years ago for telling you that this was coming to America if Americans did not repent (Matthew 3:2; Acts 20:21) before a just and holy God (Leviticus 26:14-46; Deuteronomy 28:15-68)?
How does one deny such truths when it comes out of their own mouths? They cannot.
And they are not just talking about what they are, in fact, doing.
“Who is attacking your First Amendment through illegal censorship more than big tech companies that the government is working with hand in glove? No one!”
First, there was Trey Gowdy, then there was Daryl Issa and Jason Chaffetz, and the latest to come on board with the great American appeasers is Ted Cruz.
The headline delivered by "today’s conservatives, yesterday’s liberals" was “Ted Cruz Grills Google on Censorship of Conservatives”
The show goes on, the people are appeased, and in the end, there is no justice!
One would think that if Teddy here were truly seeking answers from Google on this magnitude, he would have had a panel of top executives within the company answering these questions. Instead, he settles for an incompetent employee.
Notice with me that Ted starts out saying, “As you know, Google enjoys a special immunity from liability under section 230 under the Communications Decency Act.” A special immunity given to Google from whom, I ask?
Americans, did you give delegated authority to your representatives in giving favor to those who are now censoring you today? No, I know that I did not!
Furthermore, the First Amendment of the US Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law.”
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
So, I ask, where did Congress receive lawful authority to hand over to Big Tech companies a privilege in censoring free speech?
Ted then goes on and said that this special immunity to Big tech companies was predicated upon a neutral platform, and over and over again this incompetent employee of Google makes up excuses for her lack of preparedness. She said that it was a busy day as she chuckles it off.
Ted Cruz is merely an appeaser in the circus of politics, the fox that is guarding the chicken coop in protecting the criminals rather than prosecuting them.
When will Americans learn the lesson (Hosea 4:6) that they are in on the censorship, censoring those who would dare criticize anyone in government who is transgressing the Constitution that they swore to uphold? This is how they are allowed to tear down the laws and destroy the nation. They just leave off justice (Amos 5:7). This is not a grilling indictment on Google, it is a message to appease the conservatives of the day who take it for face value.
Just ask the bad actress congresswoman, Frederica Wilson, who last week told Americans what is going on, and in her confusion, she blurted out the truth.
“Those people that are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace. We're gonna shut them down and work with whoever to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.”
You would think with all the corruption found within the career politicians, that Americans would figure out why there are no indictments brought forth when it comes to those who are doing the “grilling.” Oh, how Americans love to be entertained by these actors in the circus of politics.
Yet, Americans are conditioned through these appeasers via hearing after hearing, investigation after investigation, and in the end, Americans settle for no indictments and no resolve when it comes to the justice which guards American liberties. They merely get talk (Isaiah 59).
Appease is defined as, “to bring to a state of peace, quiet, ease, calm, or contentment; pacify; soothe: to appease anger.”
So, what are the purposes and what is the outcome of such appeasements? It creates a nation of pacifists. Instead of prosecuting the criminals, they simply put on a show (WWE at its very worst) to appease, only to say to the American people through their inactions, “Just go back to sleep, we have got this" (Amos 5:7). Americans then drink the Kool-Aid and do as they are told to do (Isaiah 59:5-15) and God-given rights and freedoms then dissipate into thin air, which further enslave their posterity.
Remember that soft judges create hardened criminals, and that is what the American politicians have become, hardened criminals toward the American institution of our constitutional republic (Article 4, Section 4 of the United States Constitution) as they are given a free hand to transgress, at will, without any consequence whatsoever. Meanwhile, Americans are then laughed at behind closed doors and again, justice is left undone which breeds more injustice.
When Americans decide to be the strength of the US Constitution and begin to enforce the laws which apply to all of us, then things will change, but not until then (Jeremiah 6:16).
The socialists, the Democrats, the Zionists, the Masons, the Illuminati, Council on Foreign Affairs, Skull and Bones, Satanists, The CIA, etc… you name it, the foolish people of today are suggesting or insinuating that these groups of people are somehow in control of the rest of us. These people constantly highlight what it is that these groups, allied with Hell (Isaiah 28:18), are doing to us and what it is that they are going to do to us in the future. For as much as these wicked men and women would love to take credit for having all power over the lives of others, as if to suggest that they are God, I am here to say that they and others that believe these lies are sadly mistaken (Isaiah 14:13), and those only add strength to tyranny by proclaiming it to be so (Proverbs 18:21). And at length, it is paralyzing men by using the fear of man and the fear of consequence, which is diabolical (Proverbs 29:25).
We are to fear God (Proverbs 14:26), not men (Luke 12:4), nor are we to take counsel from our fears.
“For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations.” -Psalm 22:28
If in America today, you cannot see the obvious taking place, which is that judgment is turned backward (Isaiah 59), where men in both the pulpits and in politics, along with their followers, have now magnified the crime in omitting the law (Romans 4:15) instead of magnifying the law against the crime in establishing righteousness (Isaiah 51:4). We have the blind leading the blind directly into the ditch (Luke 6:39).
We are inundated with lies that are magnified over the truth, which is only temporary (Ecclesiastes 12:14) and that the devil is somehow said to be all-powerful and is control over the Most High God and His children. However, I am here to tell you that you are sadly mistaken.
Though we know the mainstream media that covers for these global conspirators (Jeremiah 11:9), they would love for you to believe that they are what they want you to believe that they are, they are not!
One must remember that these are but mere men that will bow their knees (Philippians 2:10) and answer to their Creator for every thought and deed just like the rest of us (Revelation 20:11-15). Their riches will not profit them in the day of wrath (Proverbs 11:4), nor are they able to save their own souls.
“All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.” -Psalm 22:29
How can one be a Christian and not see the Lord's willingness to do for us as He did for the likes of Abraham (Genesis 14), Joseph (Genesis 41:37-44), Moses (Exodus 23:20-33), Joshua (Joshua 1:7-9), David (Psalm 18), Gideon (Judges 6), Samson (Judges 15:16) etc? “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God.” -Deuteronomy 10:17
Furthermore, Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matthew 28:18).
People are simply where they are at today because of that which they have submitted themselves (Romans 12:21), nothing more and nothing less. America as you know it has now fallen to the judgments of The Most High because they have refused to act under His blessings (Deuteronomy 28).
“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.” -Deuteronomy 8:19
325.7 million people capitulating to a small percentage of criminals that think and act as if they are above the law! Why? Because the people have been conditioned to refuse to hold them accountable to the law (Article 6, Section 2, US Constitution). It isn’t like the people on a global scale do not know who the guilty are, because they do, and that by name. Instead, people just simply refuse to see and act accordingly to the Word of God (Deuteronomy 4) in throwing off tyranny, and in process would rather suffer their abuses, period!
In the light of Scripture, how does anyone justify the unjustifiable when it comes to saying that we are under the globalists control? You cannot. Instead of you worrying about what your enemies are doing (Matthew 6:27), live your life where your enemies are afraid of what you are doing. Never live your life where the enemies of righteousness are not afraid of you. Christians are called to be more than conquerors (Romans 8:37) in overcoming the evil (Matthew 16:18-20), we are called to be the light that reproves the darkness (Ephesians 5:11).
We are to overcome the world “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4).
When going to the faith chapter, namely Hebrews 11, what is it that we find?
“Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.” -Hebrews 11:33-35
"It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their own selfish purposes." -President Andrew Jackson
People need to first understand those who are guilty of the crimes against the American people and how they operate by doing the unthinkable. That is how they get away with what they get away with because people don’t believe that they would do such things. Well, guess what? They are.
To prove the point, just look to those who are changing American government to that which is foreign to American government on a daily basis by those who are playing the good guys. This is all being done little by little through incrementalism or a siege (Deuteronomy 28:52).
If only the American people would take the time and read their Bibles and founding documents, how soon they could identify these counterfeits that operate under false pretenses (Jeremiah 6:16), both in the Christian realms, as well as the political realms (Mark 8:14-15).
Look at how Americans have been under heightened attack over the last 2 years by those who have been sold as the good guys to represent them. Free speech, the right to bear arms, the sodomite agenda, personal and national security, etc. all of this during the tenure of the said good guy.
Then again, the old Communist tactic comes to my aid,
“The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.” -Vladimir Lenin
Today, we see President Donald Trump is sold as the victim by those he fails to prosecute. Meanwhile, the support that is driven to his base only ensures a victory for his next 4 years in the people's White House. This helps him to further his attacks on his support base.
In other words, Americans are being set up for the fall.
Mark my words.
Just this last week, Fox News, the best that the conservatives have, just put out a fake poll (Causing the enemy, “Americans,” to believe that there is a lot more of them than there really is) stating that their poised and controlled opposition criminal and actor Joe Biden was winning over that of Trump, 49% to 39%.
Have you seen the crowds that go to Donald Trump's engagements? Pretty astounding. There were over 100,000 ticket requests for Trump's presidential 2020 kickoff at the same time that this fake poll came out.
For years, Americans have seen Joe Biden exposed for his perversions. He has the support of no one and Americans know it.
What of lunatic Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, who endorses a coup against Donald Trump? Warren also argues the illegal border invasion shouldn’t be against the law.” How much support do you suppose she has in her efforts against Trump? None! This is exactly what drives support to Donald Trump. It is called controlled opposition.
Meanwhile, and on the other hand, President Donald Trump releases 196,000 illegals back into the cities of America.
What of criminal Senator Kamala Harris, who recently said that she would usurp Congress and unconstitutionally change gun laws? Again, this takes all eyes off Donald Trump's administration that is actually doing what she is talking about, and drives support to Trump.
The "establishment" knows that Americans will never get behind Kamala Harris and her criminal actions. No, the "establishment" transgresses (1 John 3:4) the law with the help of those who have been sold to you the American people as the good guys (2 Corinthians 11:14).
Who has attacked gun rights more than that of Donald Trump's administration?
Twenty-six states have now passed 55 new gun control policies by a majority of Republican governors.
What about openly gay presidential contender mayor Pete Buttigieg from Indiana, who claims that he cannot help himself, that he was born that way, and then blames God for the choices that he makes (Deuteronomy 30:19)? Outside of the likes of less than 1.7 percent of the population that engage in homosexual behavior, who do you think is going to support this guy? (Editor’s note: The number of people who identify as gay varies depending on the country you live in, but is generally considered to be within the 1% to 2% range; however, in the U.S., that number appears to be much closer to 4%). Again, this all drives support to Donald Trump, who in turn supports the agenda to decriminalize sodomy on a global scale.
I hope that you are getting my point here friends, this is the enemy play book and has been for decades in this country (Proverbs 20:12). The right wars against the left (Mark 3:25) and who wins and loses at the end of these contrived unconstitutional wars? Americans lose, and corruption wins every-time.
When will Americans learn?
Furthermore, there are hundreds of other candidates who are running for the White House to serve “We the People.” Why is it that we have only heard from the MainStream Media and their hand-picked candidates and not from the others? All cameras are to be kept on their global players and pushers of a global agenda.
The global agenda players that the American people are trying to rid themselves from are the very agenda's that President Donald Trump is implementing on his followers (Jeremiah 17:5).
This is how the American people, and that of other countries throughout history that have been destroyed are being undermined (1 Kings 13:33). Nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
And just think friends, if I listened to the modern day professed and hypocritical Christians and conservatives of the day we would all be wrong.
“The first casualty when war comes is truth” - U.S. Senator Hiram Johnson in 1917
You have probably heard the question, “Are you willing to die for your country?” You probably answered in the affirmative.
However, what I want to know is this, would you live for your country?
If your answer is yes, then you may want to know what your government is now advocating for concerning Iran, for now is the time to now live for your country by standing up and putting a stop to this warmongering.
Here again, the US government and the warmongers are now casting into the minds of the American people through the media propagandists that Iran must now be dealt with, all the while ignoring corruption and crimes in their own country as to how American politicians need to be dealt with lawfully (Amos 5:15; Matthew 7:30-5; 1 Peter 4:17).
Furthermore, when the fighting commences, you can rest assured that it will not be the warmongers fighting. It will be your sons and daughters fighting and bleeding and dying in their unconstitutional wars while making millions for the military industrial complex that we were warned about by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1961.
"Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." –Henry Kissinger
Being in the military is honorable yet, it is not honorable when you help war criminals commit crimes against innocent nations (If that nation is innocent).
Therefore, make it honorable by upholding the enumerated laws found within the US Constitution (Deuteronomy 25:1; Article 6, Section 2, US Constitution) against all enemies both “foreign and domestic.”
Again, as the media propagandists now begin to ramp up their efforts in brainwashing Americans with a dictator and another country that we need to go to war against, do remember that this was all forecasted many years ago by General Wesley Clark. He had shared with us 18 years ago that Iran will be one of the 7 countries that our military will be used to take down. After all, he said, “We have a good military and we can take down governments.”
Maybe that explains why we have 737 military bases in 148 countries today.
“The issue of Illegal immigrants in America or in any other country can easily be resolved - Enforce the Law.”
Within America, it is clear that when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration, the laws are simply not being enforced, which encourages and breeds crime, and at the end of the day, anarchy and the loss of your country (Psalm 9:17).
That’s it. It’s just that simple. Immigration laws are not being enforced. The Government, on both sides of the un-constitutional aisles (Party affiliations), are not enforcing the immigration laws. Rather, they are encouraging illegals to then break the laws by entering into America and further endangering the American people.
This is exactly what is happening today, and all of this by design.
The purpose of government is to “restrain men from sin,” which is breaking God’s moral law (1 John 3:4) and “maintaining order,” which in contrast you are seeing criminal politicians alluring illegal immigrants into America on tax-payer dollars (Deuteronomy 28:43).
The second purpose of government is to condemn the wicked, and justify the righteous (Deuteronomy 25:1). Again, you are seeing today’s criminal politicians doing just the opposite by attempting to justify the wicked, transgressors of the law, by browbeating into submission the righteous, those citizens of America who are on the side of the law.
Those that play the fool in allying themselves with the mainstream media’s narrative by browbeating American citizens should first consider that they are advertently handing their country over to them that are firstly breaking the law. They are breeding crime.
Do you know what happens to illegal immigrants in Mexico?
Their law states:
“• Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:
– Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)
– Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)
– Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)
– Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be – imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)
– Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working without a permit — can also be imprisoned.
– “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” (Article 123)
– Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)
– Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported. (Article 126)
– A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)”
On the other hand, we had President Dwight Eisenhower and his answer to illegal immigrants that were here in America, which was dubbed “Operation Wetback.”
Operation Wetback, U.S. immigration law enforcement campaign during the summer of 1954 that resulted in the mass deportation of Mexican nationals (1.1 million persons according to the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service [INS], though most estimates put the figure closer to 300,000). Drafted by U.S. Attorney General Herbert Brownell, Jr., and vetted by Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Operation Wetback arose at least partly in response to a portion of the American public that had become angry at the widespread corruption among employers of sharecroppers and growers along the Mexican border and at the Border Patrol’s inability to stem the influx of illegal workers.
In 1954, Attorney General Brownell forwarded the initiative that would eventually become known as Operation Wetback. Its name was derived from wetback, the offensive term for the multitude of Mexican immigrants who traversed the Rio Grande to illegally cross the border between Mexico and the United States. (In 1953 alone, some 886,000 persons were seized by the U.S. federal government for illegally entering the United States from Mexico.) The initiative focused on two primary objectives: (1) stemming the flow of illegal and undocumented Mexican workers into the United States and (2) discouraging the employers who harboured such workers. The plan met with resistance from some legislators as well as from agricultural and farming groups that lobbied Congress. Many legislators objected to one of the initiative’s central tenets—that employers of illegal workers should be punished— because proving the employers’ awareness of the workers’ illegal status would be difficult. Moreover, some lawmakers were hesitant about Brownell’s militaristic approach, which involved carrying out the plan like an invasion. Ultimately, Congress failed to pass legislation authorizing punishment for those who hired illegal workers, but it did allocate increased funding for the Border Patrol.
Treason-In general, it is the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance, or of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power. –Webster’s 1828 Dictionary
Nobody likes to be lied to, but boy have we been lied to and how many times we have been lied to is beyond what can be numbered, I’m certain (Exodus 20:16). And for some reason or another, Americans will suffer the abuse rather than righting the wrongs (Proverbs 15:32).
The Declaration of Independence tells us:
“...and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind is more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” You have heard that saying, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” How many times do Americans need to be lied to before they shame those who are lying to them?
Our forefathers taught us (Hebrews 13:17) through their example how we are to lawfully deal with corruption. Declaration of Independence once again teaches us as to how our forefathers dealt with corruption, “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
How many times one can warn a people that refuse to take heed to the warnings, I know not (Ezekiel 33:3). However, one thing I do know is that regardless if one takes heed or not, it is still happening, and sooner or later, there is going to be consequences to those who refuse to listen and act accordingly (Ezekiel 33:5).
We find that in the American politic today that the “circus of politics” is just that, a circus filled with clowns who are willing to sell their souls (Luke 22:48) and their country, along with the people, to special interest groups (Isaiah 28:18).
This is where the actors, politicians, act out on behalf of their special interest groups in pushing a global agenda that the people would otherwise refuse to adhere. What do the powers that mean to rule do. They create a likable and favorable politician, at least publicly, that the people will follow to do their bidding for them.
On May 6th I wrote, “Contrary to What You Have Been Promised, Your Country is Literally Being Handed Off to Foreigners,” in which I highlighted William Gheen’s findings on the Top 10 List of Trump’s Broken Campaign Promises.
Then on June 9, Tim Brown, Senior Editor at The Sons of Liberty Media reported, “This Is Not The Obama Administration: Homeland Security Releases 196,000 Illegal Aliens Into The Population, Many Receiving Work Permits.”
“As we’ve reported before, the Trump administration talks tough on illegal immigration, but what is actually going on rivals the impotence and downright criminal actions against the people that the administration under President Obama did in releasing illegal aliens, some of them convicted felons, into the US population. in just the past week, the administration released 5,500 and in the past 5 months, they have released nearly 200,000 illegal aliens into American cities.
From John Binder’s June 6th Brietbart (a supporting outlet of President Trump) article, “DHS Frees 5.5K Illegal Aliens into U.S. in a Week; 196K Released in 5 Months.” Binder writes:
“The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities — as well as flying them into the interior of the country — and dropping them off with the hope they show up for their immigration and asylum hearings. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.
Today, there are anywhere between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens living across the country — the majority of which are concentrated in states like California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois.
In the last week, about 2,500 border crossers and illegal aliens of the 5,500 released were dropped off in El Paso, Texas. Another 1,100 were released by DHS in San Antonio, Texas and another 1,100 were left in 1,100 Phoenix, Arizona. Since December 2018, El Paso has been forced to absorb nearly 70,000 of these nationals, while San Antonio has had to take 73,100.
Roughly 800 border crossers and illegal aliens were dropped off in San Diego, California in the last week. ”
Adding to the agenda that is being rolled out, we find Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham are working behind the scenes drafting legislation to further benefit them that are illegally coming into this country.
Criminal politicians, as well as illegal invaders, are endangering American lives. Today, we are seeing this country literally being handed off to those who mean to get above you, while Americans are being brought very low (Numbers 32:23; Deuteronomy 28:15, 43, 52).
If this is not the definition of treason, then I do not know what it means.
“The problem with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide.”
My son recently was looking for a company to work with concerning content that was needed for the videos that he would soon create. As he was doing so, I told him to find a package deal so it will be all-inclusive with music, images, fonts, etc.
A short while later, and in his excitement, he said that he found a company with which to work. I asked him how much the package was and if it was all-inclusive?
He said, "Dad, it is only $29.95 a month."
I said, "For everything?"
He then went on to say that you could even cancel at any given time.
I said, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
I then told him to call the company and ask if there are any hidden costs and, again, does everything come with that $29.95?
Well, he called and the first mistake that the company made was that they didn’t have a real person answering the phones. When you see when companies that use computers to do their selling for them you can rest assured that they are on their way out. If a business wants to slap a customer in the face, this is usually the first thing that they do.
When he received his call back, he found that the deal of the century was a year contract! Otherwise, the cost would be $69.95 and you can cancel at any time.
Friends, this is not what their page stated, at least not in big print.
The sad fact of the matter is that this country no longer operates under the banner of “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you: do ye even so to them" (Matthew 7:17).
I have found that a good number of the companies in America today are not serving the customers, but rather the almighty dollar and themselves (1 John 5:2).
I ask, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36)
Let me share some of my experiences with you.
About 15 years ago, I was in a health foods GNC store where they sold a large selection of vitamins. When I grabbed some ginseng and was going to check out, a man that was at the cash register was ready to pay for his items when the lady behind the counter said to him that he owed 2 times more than what it said on the price tag. The man told her that the price was right on the sticker while pointing at the items. She replied that those prices were for members only. Right next to the big price numbers were little tiny numbers to the right of it where it said that these prices apply to members only. How deceptive. The man was rightfully angry and he walked out, leaving the products on the counter. I followed in close pursuit.
No one likes to be sold with deceptive and deceitful tactics.
The Bible says, “making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?” (Amos 8:5)
Another time, we walked into a local Midwest favorite called “Old Country Buffet.” It was one of those restaurants in which you could eat and when you were done, felt like you got yourself a good deal. You were treated like a favored customer and left feeling satisfied. About 5 years ago, we went in as usual, and right when we were going to pay for our food, the lady behind the register asked if we wanted something to drink, which by the way was always a part of the price when paying for the buffet.
I responded, "What about if we want something to drink? Of course, we want something to drink. That is why we just entered into your eatery."
She said that would be a separate charge and I responded, "Well, it is not going to be long before your place of business will be shut down. You are gouging, and people are going to catch on and that will be it for your restaurant."
Sure enough, 6 months later, they were done.
How prevalent this has become today: charge your customers more by separating the meal from the drinks. This applies to "business as usual" today in America across the boards.
The airlines have now been found guilty of this every step of the way, literally. You now pay a surcharge for handling on the phone when you purchase your ticket, and when you check in, you then have to pay for your bags. Before boarding, you now have to pay for your seating, and when you get into the plane, you have to pay for your drink and your food. Treating customers like they are now doing them a favor.
Another experience that I had was another place called “Timberlodge” restaurant in Minnesota. They started out right by giving bigger portions at a fair price. However, soon after their food chain became big enough, they started to charge more with smaller portions. I told my wife that they needed to quit this or they are going to be a thing of the past. In this particular situation, I called the management and told them people are seeing what they were doing in their restaurants and it wasn't good.
"I know that you are really doing very well with your food chain, but it is coming across as you only care about the money here," I told him.
I added that they needed to either get back to customer service first or they would be gone within a year.
A week later, they put up a sign at one of their stores that read “We're not going anywhere.” I'm not kidding.
I told my wife that they were done. Two weeks later, the restaurant was shut down.
Deceptive business owners can only take advantage of people for so long before people catch on. People are not stupid. If people do not feel like service is being done on their behalf and that they are getting their money's worth and feel like they are being taken granted for, again, you can mark my words, that’s it for your business.
I can also tell you that when I and my family detect this with a business, we are done with that company in whatever capacity it may be. It usually is a good sign that a company's efforts to get a little more out of you means that it is no more about the customer, but about what they are getting from their customers.
Furthermore, if their product and service is everything that they claim it to be, then do they have to lie or deceive (Hidden costs) in the process of selling it (Proverbs 19:9)?
Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise says he is still struggling over whether to forgive the man who shot him two years ago. “I’ve never, internally, formally forgiven the shooter from the baseball shooting,” he said. “It’s something I’ve struggled with as a Catholic.”
It would be hard for many, including me, to forgive such a transgression. I’m still personally quite bitter over wrongs that happened to me some years back. So I understand the reluctance to forgive.
But what about turning the other cheek, and forgiving one’s enemies as we read in scripture throughout the New Testament? Can we suffocate our bitterness and a feeling that some form of retribution is unnecessary? Does continuing anger and hostility become tantamount to suffocating oneself emotionally? “The effects on one’s health from bottled up anger and resentment can range from anxiety and depression to blood pressure and increased risk of heart attacks,” says professor of medicine Amit Sood at the Mayo Clinic. “Forgiveness, by contrast, allows one to focus on more positive thoughts and relationships. It allows you to free up the real estate in your brain taken up by negative thinking.”
Forgive and forget, so goes much of the conventional wisdom. Move on with your life and just chalk it all up to tough lessons learned. But isn’t it possible to continue with the positive aspects in one’s life, learn from past mistakes, and continue to grow, putting aside the bitter feeling that you suffered a terrible wrong? Simply put, don’t maintain continuing anger, but don’t forget.
In the fall of 2015, Pope Francis sent the body of St. Maria Goretti on a limited U.S. tour. The youngest canonized Saint has a compelling story of suffering and forgiveness. St. Maria was born into poverty and raised in Corinaldo, a beautiful medieval village in central Italy. Maria, whose father died when she was nine, raised her five siblings when she was only eleven while her mother worked in the fields. One day, a twenty-year-old neighbor accosted her and, as she fought him, he brutally stabbed her repeatedly.
Maria died the next day, but her last words were, “I forgive Alessandro Serenelli (her attacker) and I want him with me in heaven forever.” Alessandro was so overcome that he lived the converted life of holiness in prison and eventually became a Franciscan lay brother.
One of the stops on St. Maria’s U.S. pilgrimage was Baton Rouge, where the coffin with her remains was to be displayed in veneration at Lady of Mercy Catholic Church for three days. Crowds of worshipers were expected to visit the Saint from a number of states. The pastor there, Father Cleo Milano, has been a good friend and I called him to see if there was a possibility of any quiet time with St. Maria. He suggested I come by the church close to midnight after the doors were locked down for the night.
As the sanctuary was about to be bolted and the lights were dimmed, I made my way down the center aisle of the church and sat beside the remains of St. Maria. I touched her coffin and prayed for my family. And then, I thought to myself, this beautiful child, now a Saint, was brave and open-hearted enough to forgive the cruel demon that took her life. Although I too was wronged in ways that I felt were so unjust, should I not be empathetic and compassionate enough to forgive those who so aggrieved me?
I thought about it for good while. I guess I even prayed over the decision. After much contemplation, I quietly got up from my pew and walked out of the church. So what was my decision? Could I forgive those transgressions?
Often, your adversaries, by their impertinence, bring themselves down and destroy their own reputations. In my case, nemeses that caused me harm have themselves been damaged and suffered humiliation. So what to do? Forgive them? In my case, I decided just to wait them out. They ended up destroying themselves. What’s the old saying: If you stand by the river long enough, your enemies will come floating by.
I’d urge the Congressman to take his time and be sure that forgiveness is something he really wants to give. If not, just bide his time. After all, revenge is a dish best served cold.
