Would the real John McCain be revealed?
In respect for the family of John McCain I pray for their loss, I pray for the strength and comfort of our Lord Jesus to come upon them in this their hour of mourning. My prayers go out to them.
Now I shall write of my personal studied opinion of the infamous Senator John McCain. And as I may try to wait until after he is laid to rest, it is a battle to say the least of the struggle.
When reading all the accolades and foo-fa-raw that some of the two faced RINOs are filling the social media with, I guess it would be fruitless to publish my opinion and I will try to postpone this post until what might be an appropriate time. And guess what? it will give me plenty of time to reread and make it as nice as I can, being a Christian, it will not be as nasty as some of my post concerning McCain have been in the past, just my studied opinion … the challenge will come when I attempt to keep my subjective apart from my objective, however, it is my objective study that creates my subjective so please try to understand.
Of course, the social media is overrun with accolades of bubbly praise for the infamous statesman from Arizona. I understand why politicians find great pleasure in praising a comrade in arms, it is a relief of sorts, for some his passing gives them an opportunity to claim a long friendship in order posthumously claim the deceased agreed with them. For others the relief is one more threat of exposure is gone.
And in all most have taken a jab at Trump, because Trump had the audacity to publicly call out McCain for his conduct while a prisoner of war, and his partnering with John Kelly to stop the POW/MIA issues in congress. Trumps attempt to call McCain out was a disaster and not thought out, in my opinion hurt his campaign with the Veterans, but he has long since made up for it.
The Fake news tried to have a hay-day but veterans who were prisoners with McCain, once again brought the truth out about his Treason. That information shut down the fake news on that story, but only fueled McCain’s hatred and out of control anger towards Trump and was one of the RINO Senators who lead the Trump haters.
McCain became the number one choice for the Clinton conspiracy of the Trump – Russia conspiracy information dump to the FBI, which he gladly did among a myriad of cloak and dagger lies. The infamous Dossier, bought and paid for by Clinton, involving the Obama Justice Department and the whole of the intelligence branch especially Comely of the FBI the person that the infamous McCain became the messenger between the defrocked MI-5 or 6 operative since turned private agent, who conspired with a Canadian firm who employed the wife of someone in the FBI, and two agents who were having an affair on company time and dime while married to questionable spouses.
McCain not only turned song-bird in Hanoi, but within the Republican Party as him and some of his colleagues were for years trying to put a “New Republican Party” together being more global socialist than conservative American. In my opinion John McCain and Harry Reid were more joined at the hip than any others in congress except for Pelosi and Chucky boy Schumer. Lewis and Waters are a pair as well, as a matter of fact the whole bunch of politicians, state and federal, who were products of the 60s anti-Vietnam war activists, yes, Hanoi Jane (Fonda), John Kerry, these two are more than traitors they are actually individuals of special interest to me, one of which is John Kerry, and his collusion with McCain against the Select Committee on POW/MIA.
John McCain, never wanted to go to the Naval Academy, but was too cowardly to tell his Father and Grandfather no, and his rebellion left him 5th from the bottom of graduates. His assignment to the USS Forrestal was at the bidding of his powerful Grandfather, who was a genuine hero, as well as his father, it was to save John from being kicked out altogether (my not so studied opinion).
When he finally made it home to the phony accolades praising him as a war hero and his wife and children who had been waiting for their hero to come home. Nearly seven years later or thereabouts, John met Cindy Hensley who was a fresh and extremely wealthy lady from Phoenix, then well no one really knows yet, but some say five weeks later and he proposed marriage, problem he would have to divorce his wife and sort that out first, so that he did, and it was then off on the new career of politics, and thanks to Cindy and her family he was able to win the Goldwater seat. Some say it was a great career, some say it was a toilet career.
Me? I say he was one of the most corrupt traitors in politics. But I am now collaborating some of my research and sources to complete my Opinion of the infamous Senator John McCain
Introducing my new book
Now I am looking for a good agent who will take it on.
A Splintered Nation and A Broken Church is a book which will hopefully encourage the reader to get involved in restoring our nation to an independent sovereign Constitutional Republic. You must admit that our nation has been on a very long journey towards its demise, what started out to be a sovereign Constitutional Republic, with the founders being Protestant Christian, putting in place moral values, integrity, a Constitution demanding and guaranteeing freedom, equality, and a limited government for the people and by the people. The book sort of hop-scotches through the research concerning the history of our politics and political corruption, resting at times on some major misconceptions and turning points as corruption consumed the political landscape of our nation.
Do you find yourself wondering how and why we find our nation in the state that that it is? know when it started, know how simple political rivalry turned into political parties, with specific ideological agendas and how those agendas evolved into one global liberal socialist party, or socialism the new face of the Democratic Party. A long progression and evolution since its founder Andrew Jackson. With the election of Lincoln, a former Whig turned Republican to get elected, the Republican Party gained it permanency as most Whigs went Republicans. Nonetheless, both parties are corrupt and the common link of corruption is illicit gain both monetary and political power. The book explores the fullness of intent for their corruption and vile behavior, their vile corrupt conspiracy to control the people.
Control and power have established the Shadow Government that is a huge and grossly oversized bureaucracy of unelected officials, departments and agencies that control the people by regulations, the Shadow Government is protected by corrupt politicians of both parties, primarily the global socialists… the new face of the Democrat Party. President Trump ran with the Ideal of draining the Swamp, thinking it meant both the “Deep State” and corrupt Congress. However, the Swamp is the corrupt Democrats and the RINOs who have moved in the direction of money and political power. The size of our government is a mockery of what the founders envisioned in the Constitution. The book looks at the liberal conspiracy against the Protestant church since the 1960s and why should the liberals with the objective of taking control of the nation and now the ultimate objective of a North American Socialist Union and a powerful part of the Global Socialist Union. Research has revealed problematic conditions existed that could not be ignored but must be eliminated or made of no relevance, and that is where Protestant Christianity comes into the picture. The church is broken into two main theologies, liberal and evangelical or liberal and biblical theologies, regardless, the research reveals the division which liberal theology denies, the truth of the Bible it teaches about sin. The Bible is the basis of our moral values, integrity and the character of our culture is Christianity. However. from the time of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s United Nation’s Charter and the liberal activists of the 1960s exposes the real conspiracy of socialism 2009-16 as it was accelerated by Barack Obama, or Barry whatever the only President in our history who demonized the Bible believing Christians.
The research links politics and the church. It also links the Civil Liberties Act, originated with the Kennedy brothers, then the assassination of John allowed Johnson to implement the Act and take it for his accomplishment and opening the door for minority groups such as the ACLU, LGBT, NAACP, Communist Party of America, and the liberal Press, Nation of Islam, all of which were recruiting people groups for Democrat votes. All a little pushy and all joining in against the church, the Second Amendment, law enforcement, border security, The Boy Scouts, the Military, our Flag and all patriot or Christian expression even Christian cake decorators. However, it was the church and Christian values, ethics, integrity woven into the American Dream. The use of political correctness and the freedom of speech is for liberals only. Black-white-red-yellow-whatever, racism is the biggest tool in the liberal box, intolerance and sexual abuse, (the most hypocritical tools) and further against the church is the favorite of bigotry and a fantasy God and fantasy religion. A lie is now the truth, and vile activity including thuggery violence and breaking the law is only wrong if you are a Christian or conservative.
Things really accelerated since George HW Bush and his push for the socialist union and the UN. There has never been a viler and more lawless as Bill and Hillary Clinton, then George W. with his revenge war on Iraq, when he should have gone to Afghanistan. Obama brought a new attempt to destroy the nation in civil unrest, and violent thuggery. The real eye opener is in research, not what is reported in the “Mainstream News” and liberal social networking. Researching exposes links, and it is up to the researcher to explore those links, see where your candidate stands then vote, and yes, your vote does count. Secondly, by the nature of the beast proper research will give the individual an opinion, and everyone needs a studied opinion to help discern the players and the direction they are headed. I pray the book encourages you to research and be educated enough to protect your mind against the onslaught of evil wrong, against the socialist agenda for your freedom. In this book I hope you find enough material to spark your interest to step back and do your own research. Stand for the truth and don’t compromise on the truth or your faith, even though they call you closed minded, therefore, you won’t be suckered into believing the lies.
“When you reject the truth, you will believe lies.”
You will become a slave to liberal socialism.
Happy Fourth of July – Happy Independence Day – Happy Birthday America!
Whichever you would prefer is fine by me. But God Bless America is what I would like to say on this fourth day of July 2018, and the 242nd anniversary of our independence as a sovereign Republic.
The nation has had some troubled times, but Americans pulling together to overcome the threats against our nation and our freedom has always made us stronger and more united, more together. However, liberal-socialism that budded in 1933 – 1945 (FDR and the UN) and just kept growing in liberal ideologies and blossomed with Obama’s presidency, but seems like it is wilting with the election of Trump who has so far, done a decent job of exposing the roots.
However, you must agree that Obama was the greatest divider known to history. Obama splintered our nation where “We the People” actually have allowed liberalism split even the Christian church, and it is us (“We the People”), who own the shame and the following reasons we need to humble ourselves before God and our neighbors, confess our sin and pray seeking the face of almighty God asking Him to heal our nation!
The shame of … and we the people must confess with our lips, our culpability.
We confess that:
We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word … and called it pluralism.
We have worshiped other gods… and called it multiculturalism.
We have endorsed perversion… and called it an alternative lifestyle.
We have exploited the poor… and called it the lottery.
We have neglected the needy… and called it self-preservation.
We have rewarded laziness… and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn children… and called it a choice.
We have shot abortionists… and called it justifiable.
We have neglected to discipline our children… and called it building self-esteem.
We have abused power… and called it political savvy.
We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions… and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography… and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers… and called it enlightenment.
Search us O God and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless the men and women who have been sent to direct to the center of Your will. I ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ … Amen.
This was a prayer given to open a session of the 1996 Kansas Legislature, by Pastor Joe Wright, who was asked to open the session. The response was immediate when a good number of the legislators walked out during the prayer, and that was way back then. I wonder if Kansas still invites Pastors to Open, or do they even still permit an opening prayer? Liberal politicians have called this prayer racist, divisive, and offensive. The Pastor was labeled as an extremist, intolerant, and hate-filled.
Think about it, where are our values? Where is our integrity? Where is our security? Just where are we as a nation today? Our condition is a shame. And the shame must be on the conservatives who have allowed it to happen, we have failed to hold our politicians accountable.
So, I ask you to commit to praying for our nation every day using the 2Chronicles 7:14 guide. Your commitment will be between you and God, it is like someone asking a Christian friend to pray for me or this or that and that request is soon forgotten because we are just that way. “Oh yes I will Pray for you” … and as soon as we are separated we get caught up in the world and forget. I used to shock people when, regardless where we were, I would grab their hand a pray for them or their need.
Father, we need your unconditional love and forgiveness, we need you to heal our nation, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Thanks R.S. Helms
Considering the chaotic and splintered condition of our Nation and the broken nature of our Christian church, just about anything could happen. The Nation and Christians has to do several things. We need to walk Circumspectly paying close attention to everything around us, pray for discernment, strength and a national Christian revival. We must join together with our real conservative leadership and get rid of the Shadow Government and Drain the Swamp. We know, according to Bible prophecy, that we will suffer the period of a one world order and Christians will be under great persecution, however, only God knows the appointed time. It is my studied opinion, that the time has not yet come, and for the Christian and the Nation to continue to move through life as a free Nation, we must crush liberalism’s plan for globalization. Pray with me for revival, with the heart of 2nd Chron 7:14.
God Bless you.

AT&T-Time Warner Merger – Mass Media Consolidation Could Lead the Way to One-Party Rule in The U.S.
Posted Thursday, June 14, 2018 | By Collaborative Correspondent
A vibrant and healthy democracy depends on the free marketplace of ideas.
Call it what you want. Viewpoint diversity. Access to alternative views.
In today’s media and information-driven society and culture, being able to find the opposing view on an issue, to compare the pros and cons of public policy matters or different products and services, is critical to how the American people make decisions about just about everything.
What to buy? Who to vote for? What to watch? Which music to listen to? What to wear? The plethora of choices we have today is owed entirely to the openness of the Internet and other media that facilitates and enables brand development.
But what if that process could become compromised or disrupted in a bid to control media? To control what messages were available to the public? This is the very real danger facing policymakers today in an environment increasingly moving towards mass media consolidation.
With federal judge Richard Leon’s approval of the $107 billion AT&T-Time Warner merger, allowing the two companies to combine, the floodgates are opening for content distributors like AT&T — which owns Directv — to also own much of content that plays on those platforms.
Now, Comcast is expected to bid against Disney to buy much of Fox’s media content properties.
So, what’s the problem? Besides the antitrust laws that are invoked by monopolization in any industry, mass media consolidation has meant fewer and fewer companies controlling almost all major media in the country.
A comprehensive Free Press 2018 study on major media ownership finds that just 21 corporations own all the television broadcast stations, 21 that own the radio broadcast stations, 13 that own pay television channels, 11 that own daily newspapers and 18 that own telecom and cable. That number keeps getting smaller every time there’s another merger.
A chapter on the topic in Censored 2006 by Bridget Thornton, Britt Walters and Lori Rouse, “Corporate Media is Corporate America” noted the massive overlap of individuals who sit on the boards at major media outlets and those of non-media corporations.
Then there is the dominance in tech by Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.
Rapidly, the number of separately owned options is dwindling.
Along with media consolidation, there is also a growing call for political consolidation in Washington, D.C. — and even one-party rule.
In April, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey retweeted an article by Peter Leyden and Ruy Teixeira that called for “Democratic One-Party Rule” in the U.S. as a means of reconciling the nation’s challenges and implementing the progressive agenda. You see, all that debate by Congress and disagreement over which direction to go in is getting in the way of that agenda, so democracy no longer functions the way they want it to. Today’s captains of the information industry are getting impatient. They want to see Utopia in their lifetimes.
It will be anything but.
But leaving that aside, forget about competitive elections, Leyden and Teixeira warn: “America can’t afford more political paralysis. One side or the other must win. This is a civil war that can be won without firing a shot. But it is a fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.”
The resolution: “Democratic One-Party Rule.”
Dorsey’s comment was astonishing, writing briefly, “Great read.” Really? What about the part where the authors called for one-party rule? What about the part where they called it a civil war? No?
Just, “Great read,” as if having one political party control the most powerful country in the world to govern with no dissent as the climatic outcome of a civil war “without firing a shot” was just an after-thought for the billionaire.
Who needs alternate viewpoints when there’s media empires to consolidate and an undemocratic agenda to implement? Just hurry up and work it into the afternoon schedule. Dictatorship by close of business. Can we get that yesterday?
Twitter like other social media giants cast themselves as an open platform, a device for free speech basically and the marketplace of ideas. But what if big media doesn’t live up to that and starts censoring political content of one of the two major parties in a bid for absolute power?
Would that be “anti-competitive” enough for Judge Leon to say it might pose an antitrust issue under federal law?
That is why the AT&T-Time Warner merger today is so important for the media landscape of tomorrow, and why the Justice Department must appeal Judge Leon’s decision, all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
It may not happen overnight, but we are witnessing the end of media. This is the age of medium. And if we are not careful, one day there may only be one-party rule, too. That will not lead to liberty and prosperity, but to tyranny.

WILLIAM MURCHISON: Of the Baptists and the modern world
June 12, 2018
I live in amity with the Southern Baptists, whose general tolerance for my fellow “Whiskeypalians” I take kindly.
I wouldn’t dream of joining the media whoop-de-do over who among the Baptist faithful did what to whom, and when, and what to do now. You have read it all; I will not recount the imputations of Baptist sexism, patriarchy and the Lord knows what else.
There is a point, even so, to be made about life in an environment — this one — where religious standards of belief and behavior more frequently encounter scorn or indifference than support.
Without brushing off genuine concerns about particular attempts in Baptist ranks to downplay sexual aggression (all forms of sexual aggression are despicable, would you not say?) we need to look at the premises that make such aggressions possible and familiar.
Which are? Ah. Here we get down to brass tacks.
Leave the Rev. Dr. Paige Patterson out of this. The deterioration in male-female relationships over past decades has brought this thing to pass, and all the attendant misery and reproaches.
It is in part the churches’ fault. It is in part not the churches’ fault.
It is the fault, broadly speaking, of the modern supposition that the relationship of man and woman is for that particular man and that particular woman to figure out for themselves — never mind what Western culture and religion taught in the ages prior to Freud.
It will be noted, if one looks, that there was no #MeToo movement — no swelling demand for reckoning with male aggressors — until very recent months.
There was no such movement in the ’50s. There was no such movement in the ’40s. There was no such movement in the ’30s.
Which is a far cry from saying, “Gee, everybody sure was happy and content in them there old days!” It is more reasonable to say society lived by a different ethic than that which came to hold sway following World War II.
That is where the churches came in.
The male-female relationship, as the churches saw it, and tried to teach it, involved obligation. Personal expression was low on the totem pole as a cultural objective. There were limits.
These limits, under religious tutelage, society acknowledged. Sorrow and pain and cruelty, being elements of the human character, hung around the house and, often enough, broke out windows or set the place on fire.
But that wasn’t supposed to be the way of it. The way of it, according to the Christian principles America’s churches had been endowed with, was love; it was mutual forbearance; it was kindness toward, and respect for, others.
Personal, shall we say, “expression” — meaning, among other things, rape, humiliation, aggressive encounters with members of the opposite sex — ran counter to how the Good Book told it. There were limits. You needed to keep within those limits.
You didn’t, for instance, get a stranger drunk and carnal knowledge have of her — as rape statutes used delicately to phrase it. Families and social institutions of all kinds assumed responsibility for the observance of these necessary limits.
Until they didn’t. Until the churches, to put it another way, more or less gave up on proclaiming the value and worth of the old norms: acceding, in effect, to the modern clamor to let people do as they liked; adjusting the Christian message so as not to look old-fashioned and out of it.
The Rev. Joseph Fletcher, in “Situation Ethics,” stressed the need to avoid “stern, iron-bound do’s and don’ts,” along with “prescribed conduct and legalistic morality.”
Fletcher, was, well, um, I admit it, a fellow Whiskeypalian whom the Southern Baptists could accuse of helping fellow Christians, along with non-Christians, create a vast moral trash heap.
I ache for the Baptists at this juncture: victims of, as well as collaborators in, the moral confusion through which we lurch, yelling, denouncing, prosecuting, demonizing — everything but trying to remember what it was like back when the cultural rule of thumb was taken to be to love your neighbor as yourself.
William Murchison’s latest book is “The Cost of Liberty: The Life of John Dickinson.”
The Left’s Chilling Refusal to Stop Flirting With Marxist Ideas
Recently the Times ran an editorial headlined “Happy Birthday, Karl Marx. You Were Right!”
The piece, written by Jason Barker, a professor in South Korea, is about what one would expect from a defense of communism. As one Federalist writer noted, it was “beyond parody.”
Hilariously, the article was behind a very capitalistic paywall.
The New York Times hasn’t shied away from publishing Marxist boosterism.
In 2017, the Times dedicated an entire section of its website to the 100-year anniversary of the communist revolution in Russia. It featured an assortment of absurd pieces running the gamut of declaring Lenin a hero environmentalist to claiming that women had better sex lives under socialism.
This romanticized account of life under communism is a delusion.
Of course, while the most ridiculous claim in the most recent piece is that Marx has somehow proven to be correct, it’s notable it goes a step further to say that essentially nobody questions his fundamental critiques of capitalism.
“While most are in agreement about Marx’s diagnosis of capitalism, opinion on how to treat its ‘disorder’ is thoroughly divided,” Barker wrote.
It seems fair to conclude that actually there is widespread doubt about Marx’s claims about capitalism—unless, of course, one lives in a neatly sealed left-wing bubble.
The fact is, Marx was wrong about everything.
He was wrong about economics, wrong about the flow of history, wrong about religion, wrong about where his ideas would lead, and most importantly, wrong about human nature—which he believed could be reshaped under a communist regime.
If there was one thing that was illuminating about Barker’s piece, it was his description of modern social justice crusades as fundamentally Marxist.
“Social justice movements like Black Lives Matter and #MeToo owe something of an unspoken debt to Marx through their unapologetic targeting of the ‘eternal truths’ of our age,” Barker wrote. “Such movements recognize, as did Marx, that the ideas that rule every society are those of its ruling class and that overturning those ideas is fundamental to true revolutionary progress.”
This is an interesting admission that these movements are essentially “cultural Marxism,” a phrase that the left so often stridently claims is a figment of conservative imaginations.
Given the profound failures of and misery created by communism in the past, we probably shouldn’t be too hopeful about the success of its modern iterations.
Unfortunately, many young people don’t know about the depths of these past failures, or have a skewed idea of what communism means in practice.
We should all worry about the consequences of historical ignorance.
At least Marx could conceivably say that “real communism hasn’t been tried yet.”
His modern proponents don’t have an excuse.
After nearly two centuries of experimentation with Marxist ideas, communism has failed to produce a brotherhood of man or a classless society in which everyone worked in blissful harmony.
Instead, it has produced societies notorious for their cruelty, dysfunction, and violence. It has led to the estimated death toll of just under 100 million people in the last century.
One only has to look at the Korean Peninsula to see the astounding difference of a society under communist tyranny and freedom.
As historian Sean McMeekin wrote in his book, “The Russian Revolution”:
Today’s Western socialists, dreaming of a world where private property and inequality are outlawed, where rational economic development is planned by far-seeing intellectuals, should be careful what they wish for … they may just get it.
Communism offers nothing to humanity but suffering and hopelessness.
This is not to say that life under communism was all about starvation and murderous purges.
Even at its least malignant, living under communism’s inevitable system of enforced conformity and equality where decisions are only the purview of government authorities and bureaucratic managers is hardly a system of human flourishing.
This is more akin to living a lifetime stuck in the DMV.
Marx was wrong, hopelessly wrong. His ideas have been tried, tested, and spectacularly failed.
It’s time to leave his legacy on the ash heap of history.
