I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs. -Fredrick Douglass former slave, abolitionist
Just recently, while speaking at an event, I heard a preacher ask the question to the congregants why, in the state that America is in today, it is that ministries such as Franklin Graham, James Dobson, Pat Robertson etc have not taken to the streets in protest concerning corruption within the government (Matthew 16:17-19). Many of these national ministries are put up to keep the people down (1 Kings 13:33). The fruit proves the seed (Matthew 7:16).
In fact, they are driving support to created opposition, teaching men to submit to corrupt government rather than God's moral law (Deuteronomy 4:6). Scripturally, they have it backward (Isaiah 59) and upside down (Deuteronomy 17:9).
Now after I heard the preacher bring forth his question, I thought that was a good question to those who are not paying attention. Yet, there is an obvious answer to those who are paying attention.
“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion. For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes. They were all ashamed of a people that could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach." -Isaiah 30:1-5
The first thing I would have you take notice of is that America’s favorite preachers are not the standard of Christianity. Christ Jesus is the standard.
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” -Acts 4:12
If the coaches in the NFL have lost as many games as preachers in America have metaphorically lost (prayer, abortion, marriage, etc.), they would have been thrown off their teams long ago.
The hierarchies in the American Church are the problem. They have forfeited our possession (To the other evil team) through false doctrine and through their inactions over and over again. They are the reason that corruption prevails within the walls of government and why, because they don't preach out against the sins that they themselves are guilty of (Luke 6:41). How could it be otherwise when corruption prevails within the walls of the Church?
“While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.” -2 Peter 2:19
These are also the ones that have somehow convinced the rest of Christendom that luke-warm is the temperature that the Lord has set when it comes to His children and how they are to live out their walk, and yet Jesus stated the contrary in Revelation 3:16:
“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”
“By the time the average Christian gets his temperature up to normal, everybody thinks he has a fever.” -Watchman Nee
How diametrically opposed to Scripture can Americans become?
Hebrews 1:7 tells us “Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.”
Benjamin Franklin stated that "Whoever shall introduce into public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world."
What the Church in America has become is a group of saltless, effeminate and spineless men who fail to judge themselves (Psalm 119:30) and, therefore, have no power to confront the world (Matthew 7:3) with the message of repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand (Matthew 3:2).The church is called to bear testimony against corruption (Matthew 10:18). And because they fail to be the salt, they are simply trodden under the feet of men. And so it is. The Spirit of the Lord will not bear witness to their compromise and lies (1 John 5:9-12).
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” -Matthew 5:13
What do we hear from the Church hierarchy today, "Let's pray. God is on His throne. Jesus is coming back. Just trust Jesus" (Throw your hands up in hopelessness). Yet again scripture commands Christians that they are to occupy till He comes (Luke 19:13).
These hirelings are teaching the congregants to stand down instead of standing up in protest with their lives, if need be (Luke 12:4). The church is to be the barracks that soldiers of the cross are to be spiritually equipped (Ephesians 6:12-18).
They are opening up the gates to the wolves (John 10:12) so that the sheep may be devoured (Matthew 26:15).
These ministries have taught their congregants to submit to what God has commanded to throw off (Daniel 3).
“For now the common song of all men is, 'We must obey our kings, be they good or be they bad; for God has so commanded.' True it is, God has commanded kings to be obeyed; that which they commit against His glory, He has commanded no obedience." –John Knox
The American Church will call for prayer and yet fail to act. The hirelings of the day apparently have forgotten to read the book of ACT's. The scripture is clear on this matter: “The body is without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead" (James 2:26).
“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” - Frederick Douglass
“This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;” -1 Timothy 1:18
Christianity is a battle waged against invisible foes who are always alert and ever seeking to entrap, deceive and ruin the souls of men.
I end with E. M. Bounds who stated "The Christian life is no picnic or excursion. It is not entertainment or a pleasure trip. It involves effort, wrestling and struggling (Acts 14:22). It demands putting forth the full energy of your spirit in order to frustrate the foe and be, in the end, more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). It is not a flower-strewn path, no rose-scented affair. From start to finish, it is spiritual warfare. It is a battle, not a game. From the moment they first draw their spiritual swords, Christian warriors are compelled to “Endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:3).
What a misconception many people have of the Christian life! How little the average Church members appear to know of the character of the conflict and its demands upon them! How ignorant they seem to be of the enemies they must encounter if they are to serve God faithfully, succeed in getting to Heaven and receive the crown of life! (Matthew 7:13) They scarcely seem to realize that the world, the flesh and the devil will oppose their onward march – and will totally defeat them unless they give themselves to constant vigilance and unceasing prayer (Revelation 12:17).
It is just at this point that I mean to highlight the professed Church’s greatest defects. There is little to nothing of the soldier element in it (2 Timothy 2:3). The discipline, self-denial, spirit of hardship and determination that belong to the military life and are so prominent in it are lacking in Christianity. Yet, my friends, the Christian life is warfare from the beginning to end."
Remember, God is willing to give the Church that for which it is willing to fight, but you do not get the victory without a fight.
How is the Church in America at peace with corruption that is at war with God?
Time to start reading and acting for ourselves, for we will answer for what it is that we do, and what it is that we do not do (2 Corinthians 5:10), for we see that the professors in the American church will not.
"Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?" -Psalm 94:1
"The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill
Quite often, you will find with live feeds on social media memes or posts of Americans declaring their professed love for their freedoms by honoring the fallen soldiers (Or Christ) with their lips (Matthew 15:8).
You will also notice other posts on the same feeds magnifying the crimes of the corrupt that they tolerate both in the Church and in government (Jeremiah 17:19). These are crimes that the soldiers in the natural and Christ in the spiritual have fought against by magnifying the law that exposes sin and these tyrants (Isaiah 42:21; Psalm 40:8; John 3:16; Hebrews 8:10; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 2:2).
Additionally, when looking further into the person’s profile page, you will find more often than not, that to which their hearts are really attached (Matthew 6:21) and what it is that they really love the most. You will find their page filled up and down with their favorite sports teams, etc.
One guy's profile will help serve the point: On one half of his meme is a picture of wounded soldiers where it states that “These guys get paid less than $35,000 a year and risk their lives." On the other side, it states, “So these guys (kneeling football players) can get paid $11 million a year and protest our national anthem…because they feel oppressed.”
So what I did, in turn, was post a meme of a filled stadium of football fans, the headstones of our fallen at Arlington cemetery and the front of a state capital with no one to be found in protest.
Hold that thought.
So, one must ask the question, how much do you Americans truly love their blood bought freedoms (Revelation 1:5)? Are Americans out protesting corruption within the American Church for which Christ died (1 Timothy 4:1, 5:20)?
In the natural (1 Corinthians 2:14), are these those who love their blood-bought freedoms protesting corruption in their government? Hardly, which only shows a lack of love (1 John 3:18).
Last week, my family and I were out on the road again “seeking and saving that which is lost” (Luke 19:10) in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania.
While going through the state, we stopped by a local restaurant and sat down to get some lunch. As you know, restaurants today are filling up wall space with television sets to keep patrons in their booths as long as possible while entertaining guests in hopes that they will continue to spend more on eating and drinking at their establishments, all the while ignoring one's family (1 John 2:15).
One of my children said to me, “Dad, look at all those people in that stadium (average seating per stadium 69,444 seats x 32 teams) watching a football game (Jeremiah 11:13).”
This is every Sunday, all across the country.
I said back to him, “It merely shows you where their hearts are (Exodus 20:4).” To prove the point I must ask why do we have babies being illegally murdered in the womb (Proverbs 6:17)?
Why do we have sodomites illegally targeting America’s children through forced, sexually immoral indoctrination in public schools (Luke 17:2)?
Why do we have transgender felons targeting pre-kindergarten children in American libraries (Deuteronomy 22:15)?
Why do we have foreigners being allured by representatives and Churches into America who mean to conquer us (Deuteronomy 28:43)?
Why do we tolerate a government that runs counter to its purpose while they attempt to strip us of the right to bear arms (2nd Amendment)?
Why do we have a government that is attacking our freedom of speech (1st Amendment)?
Why do we have Churches filled with hirelings who refuse to preach out against and stand in protest concerning the issues above? After all, Churches are to be the barracks in which the soldiers are raised up (Ephesians 6:12).
Yet, we see today that they have become mere buildings where congregants are taught to stand down against the evils of the day which they are commanded to preach out against (Deuteronomy 4:6; Matthew 16:15-20).
These pastors are fearful cowards, who are not appointed nor ordained by the Living God (Revelation 21:8) and their congregants are taught to follow in close pursuit.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” -2 Timothy 1:7
I say that it is a good thing our forefathers in the faith (Hebrews 11) didn’t think and act in such a deceived and impotent fashion (James 2:14-26).
"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men." -Accredited to President Abraham Lincoln
Apparently, according to the new translation of the heresies of change (Proverbs 24:21) and that among the American hirelings (John 10:12), who are the greatest advocates of the crimes above, the crosses that adorn their buildings have no relevance in today’s society (Philippians 3:18).
According to George Barna, the reasons that the Church in America refuses to address the issues above to their congregants is because they are afraid it would affect attendance and offerings (Proverbs 29:25).
Why do Americans, of which 86% profess to be Christians (1 John 2:4), say that they love their country, but go no further than to tolerate, by their inaction and idolatry, corrupt politicians, lawlessness, the indoctrination of their own children and more.
Americans are dishonoring and trampling under foot that which our veterans and the Christ died (Hebrews 10:28-30) fighting against (1 John 3:8) and are allowing tyranny to flourish in their own country through their complacency. Is this how you honor the fallen-sacrifice? Absolutely not! Is this love? Absolutely not! But one thing that we know for sure, this is where the people's hearts are which explains the state of America today.
“When government takes away it’s citizens right to bear arms it becomes the citizens duty to take away the government's right to govern." -Accredited to President George Washington
It is interesting how this is playing out in front of the people in this country when it comes to more illegal encroachments or infringements on law-abiding gun owners. Remember, they accuse the law-abiders of the crimes of the law-breakers (1 John 3:12).
Here is how it is played out: On one side of the divide and conquer aisle (Mark 3:25) we have Donald Trump, sold to you as the Republican, who calls for illegal “red flag laws,” which are not law. In the end, they will be aimed at their political opposition.
On the other hand, we have those who are sold to you as the Democrats, who are calling for the removal of AR-15s and other semi-automatic weapons.
Which do you prefer? Do you prefer small infringements through Donald Trump, or complete disarmament by Democrats? Either way, you are being disarmed and tyranny wins out.
I would advise everyone to take heed to President George Washington, who is responsible for arming the citizenry that we are to “guard ourselves against the impostures of pretended patriotism” (Matthew 24:5-8; 2 Corinthians 11:14).
If you are paying attention, this is not only leading through “created” opposition, but it's also happening through what is called the Hegelian dialectic (John 8:44).
The Hegelian dialectic is defined as "a framework for guiding thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead to synthetic solutions (of a proposition- having truth or falsity determinable by recourse to experience) which can only be introduced once those being manipulated take a side that will produce the predetermined agenda (Outcome)."
Recently, the mainstream media’s push of un-constitutional debates and their Communist candidates included Beto O’Rourke and his gun confiscation plan.
'No, it’s not voluntary 'It is mandatory,'" O'Rourke said of his proposal. "It will be the law. You will be required to comply with the law." He then went on to say:
"We expect people to comply with the law."
The problem that Mr. O’Rourke is having here is that it is not law nor will it ever be law regardless of what he or any other Communist candidate wants you to believe.
“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788
Americans, where have these anti-gunners received delegated authority to advance their agenda? They did not receive it from “We the People.”
Have Americans really become this dumbed down as to believe that representatives change laws that counter our rights? Our rights didn’t come from the state's generosity. They came from the hand of God, period!
“The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.” -President John F. Kennedy
Representatives of government in this country have, in fact, sworn to uphold the laws found in the US Constitution, not to tear it down and recreate it into the ungodly image of the United Nations.
Friends, look to history. George Mason warned us that those who mean to disarm, mean to enslave. They mean to be your masters while you become their slaves, and the best way to enslave people is to disarm them (Hosea 4:6).
Look to the example, which our forefathers exhibited not just in writing, mind you, but also in action. Our forefathers armed the people for the very purpose of what is happening in America today.
Americans must come to terms that corrupt politicians are not the type that you can help or rehabilitate. They are the type that you must lawfully remove, or you will lose your God-given right! (Article 2, Section 4, US Constitution)
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – President Thomas Jefferson
You must fight for your God-given rights! (Deuteronomy 1:8; James 2:14-26)
It is the difference between a free people and an enslaved people. There is no in-between (Luke 11:2).
Firearms are second to the Constitution in importance; they are the people’s liberty’s teeth.
Therefore, Americans, it is time to grin (Romans 12:21) in the face of tyranny.
South Tower: “I guess about three minutes later you just heard explosions coming from building two, the south tower. It seemed like it took forever, but there were about ten explosions. At the time I didn’t realize what it was. We realized later after talking and finding out that it was the floors collapsing to where the plane had hit. We then realized the building started to come down.” -Carlsen, Craig (9110505)
Just today, while taking my son to the dentist, I scrolled through my media feed and I started to notice post after post with first responders and firefighters telling us of their accounts as to what was happening inside of the Twin Towers on the lower floors after explosions took place on the upper floors.
Here are three firefighters countering mainstream media’s narrative talking to the media (Vulgar Language).
I also noticed that there was post after post of the American people questioning the mainstream media’s narrative, and rightly so (Isaiah 5:20).
Learning from history, as well as to how the American mainstream media’s sick and evil game is played out today, let us remember that history is repeating itself in the present (Jeremiah 11:9).
Does this look and sound familiar?
Propaganda Minister under Adolph Hitler Joseph Goebells said,
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Without further ado, click on this link and read what it was that 156 eyewitnesses accounted for concerning what actually took place on September 11, 2001, and decide for yourselves as to whether or not you have been told the whole truth and nothing but the truth (John 8:36).

“Every country has the government it deserves.” –Joseph De Maistre
As I have long observed, the collusion between corrupt media and corrupt government in this country has continued to set the narrative for far too long. It is a history lesson that needs to be learned in the present.
Adolph Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels said:
“It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.”
He goes on, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Is this what we see today in America? Absolutely, it is!
History teaches us that these dictatorships have continually advocated for unlawful change, out with the old and in with the new (Proverbs 24:21), by creating domestic warfare, and all this with the help of the media’s propagandists (John 8:44).
Remember the brown shirts under Adolph Hitler who were responsible for creating the domestic issues only to then have Hitler play the problem solver, and soon after to be praised by his followers for solving the very issues that he was, in fact, responsible for creating.
Remember what SS officer Josef “The Angel of Death” Mengele said: "The more we do to you, the less that you believe that we are doing it to you.”
To help make clear and simple these next points (Psalm 119:130), remember that the disciples of the devil and son of Belial Saul Alinsky conjured this up in his reprobate mind to deceive the enemies of righteousness by telling them:
“Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
So, with this now in scope, let me explain.
Just this week, while at the Minnesota State Fair, which is the fourteenth year we have had the opportunity of having our ministry booth there (Luke 19:10), we had the opportunity of seeing much of this being played out right in front of our eyes.
We noticed that the propagandists from Minneapolis Star and Tribune reported that there was a big Black Lives Matter protest going on. Little did they know that I was there the day that they reported this big protest. It's funny because I did not see or hear a peep of disturbance from this group that day. (Editor’s note: To be fair, multiple sources report that the protesters were at the front gate and were not allowed into the fair. That’s probably why Bradlee did not see them.)
Do you remember what William Randolph Hearst had said?
“You furnish the pictures and ill furnish the war.”
This is exactly what the media’s “useful idiots” were doing that day.
Speaking of Black Lives Matter, they had a pretty good size booth at the state fair, which was downsized again this year. Yet, the problem with this was that there were thousands upon thousands of people (270,000 a day) walking by, and I did not see one person stop in support of them whatsoever, not one!
Who helps promote the life and the victim status for Black Lives Matter more than the mainstream lying media? Nobody does!
I also noticed a booth in a hall, which literally thousands of people walk down, that was promoting the "religion of peace," Islam. Outside of the 2 people that were manning their small booth and standing by to share with the people the "compassion, tolerance and love of Islam," not one person stopped by this booth.
Who promotes Islam as the religion of peace more than the mainstream media? Nobody.
I was wondering with all of the support that the media was giving to the sodomite (Leviticus 18:22) lobby, which is a felony in every state of our union, surely there must be a booth in support of them? There was no booth because the only ones giving life to the lies that they promote are those who are trying to rule over you. In other words, the people are not supporting this. The mainstream media is attempting to deceive the masses with the lie that the people are in support of the homosexual lobby when they are not.
Yet, what adds strength to all of these subversive organizations is the people’s tolerance of their crimes.
With all of the support for Planned Parenthood, or so the media would have you believe, I ask, where was their booth at the Minnesota State Fair? There isn’t one because the people in this country are not in support of it and yet over 3-4000 innocent babies are killed in the womb every single day (Proverb 6:17).
I couldn’t find an anti-Second Amendment booth, a pro-illegal immigrant booth, a pro-Communist booth, etc. and yet, the people fall for the media’s propaganda in allowing their subversive actions towards our Republic.
The irony of this whole thing is that right next to our booth this year was a media propaganda outlet called The Pioneer Press, which was attempting to hand out FREE papers, yes I said FREE papers, that the people were refusing to take. Friends, they could not even give the papers away for FREE.
Taking it a final step forward Malcolm X stated:
“If you are not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”
I will tell you by first-hand experience how true this is, how many times I have been polarized and scrutinized and lied about by the mainstream media for simply telling the truth that exposes them for that which they are responsible (Matthew 5:10; Ephesians 5:13).
Knowing all of this, I have to ask, of what are the American people afraid (Proverbs 28:1)? It is all based on lies, promulgated by liars that need justice rendered to them (Isaiah 5:20).
How many organizations in this country exist because of these lies and yet, survive because the people do not take the time to pull the mask off these subversives?
A war within is drawing nigh unto our front doors (Amos 6:3) if we refuse to deal with them.
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” -Psalm 9:17
Who is pushing for war which brings about change more than the corrupt media and the corrupt politicians? No one.
"The income tax has destroyed the concept of financial privacy. It has demolished the idea that a man's home is his castle. It has provided unlimited funding for politicians to wreck lives and property. It has forced one-earner families to become two-earner households -- leading to decreased parental supervision of children; loss of family values; and increased crime, promiscuity and drug use. So long as the government has the power to invade our lives, rummage through our records, and take what it wants from our income, we will have only as much freedom and take-home pay as the politicians condescend to let us have." –Harry Browne
First, I have to tell how the Word of God NEVER ceases to amaze me. It covers every facet of life known to mankind, from how we are to live before our Creator (John 14:21; 2 Corinthians 5:15; Ephesians 2:8, etc.) to how we are to treat each other (Luke 6:32), and how we are to address every given situation that pertains to our everyday life, and yes, even taxes (Mark 12:17).
Before I get started here, lest one attempts to pervert my words (Matthew 22:15), for the record, I am not a tax protester. I am simply just tired of the lack of accountability and reallocation of my tax dollars being spent where I have not delegated my representatives to disperse them.
American Freedom To Fascism - A 2006 documentary film by Aaron Russo, which alleges among a variety of claims that income tax is illegal.
Without further ado, let me address the issue.
Charlie Reese was a former writer for the Orlando Sentinel in Florida for over 40 years and when it came to his taking a last stand in confronting the established government (This column was originally published in the Orlando Sentinel on Feb. 3, 1984), he named his last column “545 people are responsible for the mess, but they unite in a common con.” He wrote,
“Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans (Unconstitutional) are against deficits, we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes? (I’ll get to this in a moment)!
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don't have the constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code (There isn’t one). The Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy the Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine (Unelected) Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of 238 million (325.7 presently)- are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. Don't forget about the 325.7 million Americans today that tolerate this.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Bank because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered but private central bank.
I exclude all of the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it.
No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
Don't you see now the con game that is played on the people by the politicians? Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party (Article 4 section 4 US Constitution).
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of Tip O'Neill, who stood up and criticized Ronald Reagan for creating deficits.
The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land (Article 6 section 2), gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating appropriations and taxes. O'Neill is speaker of the House. He is the leader of the majority party. He and his fellow Democrats, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto.
Just 545 Americans have fouled up this great nation (With the approval of the 325.7 million Americans that have failed to hold them accountable).
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 235 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted - by present facts - of incompetence and irresponsibility.
I can't think of a single domestic problem, from an unfair tax code to defense overruns, that is not traceable directly to those people.
When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise complete power over the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red. If the Marines are in Lebanon, it's because they want them in Lebanon.
There are no insoluble government problems. Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take it.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation" or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people and they alone are responsible. They and they alone have the power. they and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses - provided they have the gumption to manage their own employees.”
I mean to highlight what Charlie had written concerning taxation. Here is a partial list of taxes that Americans pay. Did you approve of these tax appropriations?

Yet, despite all of this oppressive taxation, our local governments, our state governments and our federal government are all absolutely drowning in debt. To date 22.03 trillion dollars.
When the federal income tax was originally introduced a little more than 100 years ago, most Americans were taxed at a rate of only 1 percent. Many of today's taxes were not incurred then.
But once they get their feet in the door, the social planners always want more.
Since that time, tax rates have gone much higher and the tax code has exploded in size.
1 – The U.S. tax code is now 3.8 million words long. If you took all of William Shakespeare’s works and collected them together, the entire collection would only be about 900,000 words long.
2 – According to the National Taxpayers Union, U.S. taxpayers spend more than 7.6 billion hours complying with federal tax requirements. Imagine what our society would look like if all that time was spent on more economically profitable activities.
3 – 75 years ago, the instructions for Form 1040 were two pages long. Today, they are 189 pages long.
4 – There have been 4,428 changes to the tax code over the last decade. It is incredibly costly to change tax software, tax manuals and tax instruction booklets for all of those changes.
5 – According to the National Taxpayers Union, the IRS currently has 1,999 different publications, forms, and instruction sheets that you can download from the IRS website.
6 – Our tax system has become so complicated that it is almost impossible to file your taxes correctly. For example, back in 1998 Money Magazine had 46 different tax professionals complete a tax return for a hypothetical household. All 46 of them came up with a different result.
7 – In 2009, PC World had five of the most popular tax preparation software websites prepare a tax return for a hypothetical household. All five of them came up with a different result.
8 – The IRS spends $2.45 for every $100 that it collects in taxes.
10 – When the U.S. government first implemented a personal income tax back in 1913, the vast majority of the population paid a rate of just 1 percent, and the highest marginal tax rate was just 7 percent.
If it was up to me, I would abolish the income tax and shut the IRS down.
But neither major political party in the United States is even willing to consider such a thing.
So the monstrous system that we have created will continue to get even bigger and even more complicated.
We are literally being taxed into oblivion, and most Americans don’t even seem to care.
Simply put, Americans are paying for their own demise (Numbers 32:23).
“The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.” –Maximilien Robespierre
I have to tell you friends that I am not here to win a popularity contest by telling Donald Trump worshippers, who are idolaters, what it is that they do not want to hear (Luke 3:19). Yet, I am ordained by God to be free of their blood by telling them what it is that they need to hear (Acts 20:26).
What is happening in America today does help us to understand the history of dictators, which is being repeated by those who have not learned from history and how it is that they get away with their crimes (Hosea 4:6). People somehow have in their minds that dictators will come forward attacking by force with two pointy ears, a long red tail and a pitch fork in his/her right hand. Nothing could be further from the truth.
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” -2 Corinthians 11:14-15
History also teaches us that dictators of the past and present were and are loved by the masses and, in the end, to their own destruction (Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Tung etc.). They were also hated by those who knew the difference (Labeled by the dictators as the enemies of the state) who were attempting to awaken the masses (Ephesians 5:11).
In The Present
Is anyone paying attention to the fact that what big tech companies are illegally doing through censorship today (A clear violation of the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights), is the same thing that red flag laws will do to gun owners if passed? It will aim at disarming any opposition that stands in the way of their global initiative. Who is the greatest proponent of unconstitutional red flag laws? Why, it's President Donald Trump, of course. I thought what Americans were told is that they were under attack by everything anti-American? They are, and President Donald Trump is behind these unconstitutional measures. Although, you would think this would be coming from the likes of Kamala Harris or Joe Biden, and it is.
How does this work? The mainstream media reports:
“When Joe Biden (Sold to you as the bad guy) was questioned about a Biden administration coming from American guns, Biden says, 'bingo!'”
President Donald Trump sells himself that he is the one that will “Make America Great Again.” Yet, Donald is the one looking to pass this unconstitutional red flag laws. Who is coming for your guns? President Donald Trump is coming for them.
I have noticed that in every given scenario that this is how these agendas have gone forward with Donald Trump's administration.
Just today, and adding insult to injury, it was reported that President Donald Trump is now requesting reauthorization of NSA mass surveillance.
“The White House is calling for the reauthorization of a program that security agencies have used to spy on innocent people, violate their privacy, and chill free speech,” said Sandra Fulton. All of this while the American people are subject to an invasion of illegal’s spilling over into the American borders and are illegally searched in airports" (Violation of the 4th Amendment-Bill of Rights).
Who is calling for permanent surveillance? President Donald Trump is calling for it.
Same thing with Abortion
Is this how you make America great again? Advocating war with a just and Holy God (Exodus 15:13) in advancing a Hell on earth (Psalm 9:17)?
Again, this is all coming from the one that declares that he is making America great again. I wonder what he says to those that he hates? Maybe this explains why he has not fulfilled his promises by indicting political criminals within the swamp that he promised to drain (John 8:44).
If the communists, as you are taught to believe, are the treasonous enemies of this country, and they are, then what does this make Donald Trump and his administration?
I almost hate to say it but if Donald Trump's enemies would open their eyes (2 Corinthians 4:4), they would be praising and worshipping him the same way that those that claim to have their eyes open (Mark 8:18), namely the professed Christian-conservative-right, do. Hypocrites (1 John 2:4)!
Yet, if you are paying attention, it is the very fruit on the branches of Donald Trump's administration (Matthew 7:16). Like that of the mainstream media’s propaganda spin doctors and actors, they rely on your absolute ignorance to further wield more control over the ignorant populace on a daily basis.
I can hear someone say, "This sounds like a broken record, Bradlee!" However, what sounds like a broken record is the talking points which are being played out in real-time by a bunch of hypocrites (Matthew 23:3) who have been told the truth of the matter that they refuse to acknowledge (John 8:24), and yet, all the while, knowingly and continuously playing into the hands of those who are destroying their country.
How do you show mercy to people like that? You cannot (Jonah 2:4)!
I end by addressing the president: Mr. Trump, It has been said that you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all of the time and God at no time (Proverbs 15:3).
“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).
