Truth About Our School System

Battle Against Leftist Indoctrination in Public Schools Continues in Maine

Maine state representative Lawrence Lockman isn’t backing down after a committee in the state legislature killed his proposed bill that would have forbidden political and ideological indoctrination in the public schools of the Pine Tree State.
Leftist indoctrination in the classroom “is a violation of the civil rights of the students,” Lockman told FrontPage. Politically correct identity-group politics is now the norm in Maine’s classrooms, he said. (FrontPage published an op-ed by Lockman on March 5.)
“Realtors, architects, dental hygienists, have a code of ethics,” he said. “Why not teachers?”
.
Teachers were wrong to get involved in and bring students to a previous demonstration to lobby for the passage of legislation restricting firearms, Lockman said.
“It’s outrageous that teachers are taking sides on a legislative issue.”
“The kids were used,” he said. “They were pawns. They were dupes.”
“If the gun owners of Maine were having a demonstration or a rally to press for pro-firearms legislation I would just as strongly have opposed teachers getting involved in that.”
Lockman said his 501(c)(4) nonprofit, the Maine First Project, is moving forward with a “forgotten parents’ initiative” to get parents involved at the local level.
Lockman’s comments came after his fellow Republican lawmakers abandoned him and allowed his bill, known as LD 589, to die in committee. The measure, which the David Horowitz Freedom Center helped to draft, was unanimously voted down by the joint House-Senate Education and Cultural Affairs Committee Feb. 28. Not surprisingly, the teachers’ unions and the ACLU opposed the bill.
The legislation would have required the State Board of Education to “adopt rules prohibiting teachers in public schools from engaging in political, ideological or religious advocacy in the classroom.” Those rules “must be clear and provide enforcement mechanisms for appropriate and professional ethical behavior by teachers licensed in the State in tax-supported schools.”
While on the job public school teachers would have been forbidden from endorsing, supporting or opposing: any candidate or nominee for public office; any pending, proposed, or enacted legislation; and any pending, proposed, or executed executive action by an executive or executive branch agency at the local, state, or federal level.
Teachers would also have been barred from “[a]dvocating in a partisan manner for any side of a controversial issue,” and from taking a stand on any pending, proposed, or decided court case and from introducing any controversial subject matter not germane to the course being taught. They also would have been forbidden to endorse, support, or engage in any activity that hampers or impedes the lawful access of a military recruiter to the school campus or that hampers or impedes the actions of local, state, or federal law enforcement.
“Segregating students according to race or singling out one racial group of students as responsible for the suffering or inequities experienced by another racial group of students,” would also have been prohibited.
Republican lawmakers on the committee joined Democrats to brush aside Lockman’s concerns about the ongoing leftist indoctrination of Maine students.
Rep. Gary Drinkwater (R) said the bill “goes against the core belief” that this issue should be “handled by [local school] administration,” the Bangor Daily News reported.
“It’s not a major issue. It’s a small issue that happens, and it’s not to be tolerated,” Drinkwater said. “We want controversial issues brought up in the classroom — that’s a good place for it to be discussed. We just don’t want one-sided philosophy taught.”
Drinkwater said everyone agreed the way to proceed “is not with legislation.”
This “local control” argument that Republicans on the committee hid behind was a complete cop-out, according to Lockman. It amounts to Republican lawmakers saying they don’t care about the civil rights of students and that ethics are optional for teachers in Maine.
The state government already bears most of the cost of K-12 public education and imposes mandates on local governments and school districts “all the time,” he said.
The testimony of parent Cathy Nichols, who co-chairs the Falmouth Town Republican Committee in Cumberland County, Maine, fell on deaf ears.
When the bill was scuttled by the committee, “I was stunned,” Nichols told FrontPage.
“I couldn’t understand how they could ignore such raw verbatim testimony.”
Children “have very malleable minds” and some children “are being victimized” in the classroom, she said.
In her testimony before the committee, Nichols said students who expressed non-leftist opinions were marginalized, and in some cases, punished.
One parent told her that at a school in Portland “students who chose not to participate in the [March 2018 pro-gun control] walk out were required to remain in the library with no books and no computers, a virtual detention.”
One girl was told to remove her pro-Trump MAGA (“Make America Great Again”) hat while her classmates wore the pink pussy-hats popularized by the Women’s March. Another said her political science class was completely one-sided, teaching about Democrats without discussing Republicans.
A 7th grade female attended a “Girls Rock” event supported by a school. The girls were given tee shirts bearing the word “feminism” and were asked to draw the shape of a vagina on paper and pin it to the shirt. Later the girls were taught that anal sex, same-sex sex, and not shaving body parts was acceptable. Many parents were horrified when their daughters recounted the experience, Nichols said.
The father of another 7th grader complained about the radical bent of social studies homework. The student was asked to research a website called We The Future which describes only leftist causes including Black Lives Matter, the Women’s March, gun control, and open borders. Students were encouraged by their teacher to become politically active on behalf of these radical causes.
A boy was asked to write an essay about the border wall promised by President Trump. He complied and received a failing grade when he supported Trump’s position.
“There is an inherent bias in our school system towards a liberal interpretation at the exclusion of any kind of conservative opinion,” Nichols said in her testimony.
“This bias fosters intolerance of different beliefs and this is not the kind of education we deserve. Please teach our children how to think, not what to think.”
“These students, our children, who did not go along with the ‘groupthink’ were shamed not only by certain other students, but, more distressingly, by teachers. They were punished not for anything they did, but for beliefs they hold.”
FrontPage readers are painfully aware that the Left has long been attempting to radicalize students and encourage them to become activists obsessed with the Marxist holy trinity of race, sex, and class.
With help from extreme-left hate groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and California’s Just Communities Central Coast, and other radical activists trying to impose unwanted social change on the country, public school teachers across America already saturate students with information about racial injustice in America in a nonstop barrage of historic facts and ahistorical nonsense. And in the culture at large, the media, politicians, and the entertainment industry can’t stop talking about race.
In Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Marxist theorist Paulo Freire urged that schools be used to inculcate radical values in students to transform them into agents of social change. Freire argued that the so-called dominant pedagogy “silences” poor and minority children and that there is no such thing as a neutral educational system.
Joining Freire in his desire to use the educational system to level institutions is unrepentant communist terrorist and education theorist Bill Ayers, a close associate of Barack Obama who has long advocated corrupting the young so they can agitate to fundamentally transform American society.
“If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to; the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon,” he said in 2012. “We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm.”
Fortunately, there are still people like Lockman and Nichols who are willing to fight back against the radical indoctrination of young, impressionable students, even if it means taking on fellow Republicans.
As Lockman wrote in his op-ed:
I suppose that when you’re always tucked into a defensive crouch, and want to be well thought of by the Democrats and the Fake News media, you would have good reason to be scared of losing your next election campaign if you voted against the wishes of the ACLU and the union bosses.
But what if our side played offense for a change?
What if we hammered the union bosses for all they have done to wreck public education and indoctrinate our kids? What if we went to bat on behalf of parents and students who are being cheated by the rigged system?
What would happen if we decided to fight fire with fire?
We’ll never know until we try.

Damn right.

Socialism .. Our Greatest Danger

 

Get out of UN

 

Socialism, the resurgence of socialism in my studied opinion is not actually a resurgence, but inadvertently exposed during the 2016 and the 2018 political campaigns. What happened with some of the comments during the Clinton – Sanders primary DNC presidential campaign, both mentioned some of the socialist utopias. Bernie more than Hillary because he wears his socialism like a fine hat, Hillary on the other hand, was more clandestine in her socialist ambitions, playing so because of Obama’s blatant display of total disregard for the Nation, the Constitution, and the people. His total ambition to divide and conquer our nation in the name of the North American Socialist Union which he would then control and work his way to the UN Secretary General in his blind ambition to rule the world, as the Global Socialist Union.
That was not the idea of the Muslim from Kenya before he made the splashes in Chicago politics with ACORN and George Soros, Bill Ayers (the theoretician of Marxism as he led the Weather Underground). It was Bill Ayers that implemented the Saul Alinsky ideologies into the ACORN group, and socialism was well into its resurgence then.
Now we have socialists coming out of the woodwork which has been called Democratic Socialists. Several socialist groups already exist in the United States and have done so for decades. They have grown steadily developing their ideologies, and of course, the MSM have their agenda to help even when lies suit them and their purpose better than the truth. Problem with socialism and that is for conservative and Christian authors, bloggers and all conservative communications. Liberal-socialists and Republican establishment politicians will control the content … even in our books. So, if you have a book ready, you had better get your agent and get them busy with selling your book to the right publisher.
I listen to several sermons on Sunday, I have a couple of preachers that I like as their messages always apply to life, our lives as we have to live it in these turbulent times of chaos in our nation. Our nation that was founded on Christian principals as most of the founders were Christian of a few sects who settled in their own Boroughs in most part, but there were other sects and non-Christians there as well, just in a large minority, and thus the infamous Jefferson letter about a wall between government and religion, it was initiated by the Danbury Baptist Church’s concern that being a minority in his state of Connecticut that they would be run out, or politically persecuted. Jefferson’s letter simply was to state that the federal government could not step in and that they could not establish or disestablish any religion. However, since the ’60s the Atheists have created major damage to the Christian faith in the United States, using Justice Black’s opinion on Church and State, and the Socialist group the ACLU.
Fact is, the United States was founded as a Christian Nation our Constitution and its Preamble reflect it. Our laws, ethics, integrity, morals, reflected throughout the history of our nation. It is not any wonder that it is my studied opinion that this nation was given as a safe haven for Christ’s Protestant church. Not always doing the right thing, but then the church is the people and Christian or not, people don’t do the right thing most of the time. As a nation, we should have been learning by our mistakes and as the church, we should have been learning from our mistakes. But evil pride and the nature of man has only splintered the nation and broken the church.
Meanwhile, socialism has been able to move ahead through the aid of liberalism, liberal theology, social justice, and our worthless liberal congress. I know some of the representatives and Senators are fine people with some integrity and values, however, we still have a majority of the citizens and the church that still hold on to the value that makes this the greatest nation on earth.
Yes, I am a Trump supporter and glad that I am, although I have my doubts that he will be able to complete what we made him promise to middle America. Some he has kept even with all the obstruction from the Shadow Government (the Swamp and Deep State), and he wanted to get things done bi-partisan but that should have never even been considered from day one. He began by changing his demeanor to be more presidential and with class, except with his war against fake news, and that war just might cost him reelection in 2020, because, the “never Trump” socialists and RINOs have joined with the press to bring him down. But in the long run, he has just kept on keeping on, like the little pink bunny.
Unfortunately, like the little pink bunny, the socialists just keep on going, beating their drums of resistance and Argumentum Ad Infinitum cycling from one fake issue to another. Well perhaps fake is too strong of a word if we are looking at the big picture because some of what they claim is based on a half-truth, no truth, and totally manufactured lies with no link to reality at all. And that is what the mainstream media find their material to run with. It is the reason that we hear what they say and calls it and them stupid.
Stupid like a fox as long as they can get their lies passed among the conservative on social media it actually becomes a weapon against us. It becomes Ad Nauseam and if we continue to respond beyond the first comment and share on social media, we are playing their game and doing the propaganda for them. It is what Trump did during the campaign he picked a big fight with them and then would make totally out of context comments focusing perceived truth, and the outrage would spread like wildfire fueled on gasoline. The Socialists are doing the same thing with us and it keeps on going and going and going and going, … we are their best propagandists.
Since President Trump called the socialists out during the State of the Union address, because a half dozen of them have been recently elected and several socialists have elected to seek the office of the President in 2020, so now that the old DNC has been exposed as mostly socialists and some even communists who have been purposing the Obama agenda in making the US into the North American Union (North American Socialist Union). But by pointing out the Socialists that have come out of the closet, he uncovered the whole stinking mess and the rest are in denial, sort of.
May God have mercy toward our nation, may God have mercy on us, his children. I look for more socialist confrontation not only against the President and Vice President, but conservative Congressmen/women will be in the crosshairs along with the rest of us. I pray that God will intercede on the behalf of our nation and of His church. Amen, amen and the peace of God be with us all.
Socialism in our nation has been like the little choo-choo chugging along and it came to a steep mountain, and down in its little puffer-belly it didn’t think it could, but it had to try even in the face of certain failure. The little puffer-belly started to say … “I think I can – I think I can – I think I can, I believe I can – I believe I can – I believe I can, I know I can – I know I can – I know I can…” and he did, he made it over the mountain. Well socialism has made it over the mountain, slowly over decades, but it made it over, and with George HW Bush’s allegiance to the UN and aligning his agenda with their agenda, that little puffer-belly of socialism started to have a problem with the downgrade, Clinton tried to control the momentum of the downhill plunge, George W Bush lost the brakes, and Obama put more fuel to it until it went totally out of control bringing chaotic division amongst the people.
Socialism took over the Democratic Party back in the day of Franklin D. Roosevelt and his “New Deal” and the UN Charter. Now that Hillary didn’t make it to the Whitehouse to continue on where Obama left off, we have them squealing like a stuck hog, because Trump is doing what Obama did to the conservative, only with more provocation when he went on National TV and said how he was being opposed in Congress “I have a telephone and a pen” telling the nation he could do what he wanted, and that was the power of his office. That is what he did. And was unopposed by the socialist (liberals) in Washington.
He would not have even been elected the first go around if a real conservative would have run against him, but he had the good fortune to run against another socialist McCain, at the least a RINO, who was trying to make the Republican Party into a “New Republican Party” (progressive globalism) and the opposite of conservatism. Then along came Mitt, who had it won even without trying, that is until their last debate and RINO (globalist) Mitt gave Obama the win, with simple ridicule over naval ships. An unexpected ploy in a valid point that Obama switched to ridicule old Mitt, and like it was almost a preplanned game, he manufactured a feeble grin and a stammered “I am aware of that”… and went on a very defensive and elusive argument, loosing not only the debate but his whole campaign, a campaign that now seems to have been a farce and manufactured failure from the start.
It would be my studied opinion if I would give it much thought if any, it would just enhance my loathing for Romney he sold the election to the socialists, allowing the Obama to try to finish what he started in 09; “To fundamentally change our nation.” and he almost, yes, he ALMOST. Succeeded, but, as they say, “Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” Thank the ever-merciful God for not allowing Clinton or Obama, to continue during a time of chaos on every front, which was all manufactured and fast-tracked by Obama, Soros, The UN, Clinton, and the socialist in the shadow government and in Congress, including the RINOs who nearly destroyed the conservative Republican party.
Without God’s intervention … well, I will leave you to guess. I will leave you to read my book when it is published (I hope soon – just have to find an Agent) … but you can start doing your own research, starting with FDR’s New Deal, the UN Charter, and all the social programs he used the power of the “phone and pen” executive power to put into effect. Why? to nudge the people who were coming out of the great depression to rely on government, even for work and retirement With programs like the Social Security Act, (Congress) WPA, Welfare for families with children, which added more agencies, and expanded the power of the federal government over the people, FDR’s New Deal targeted the most vulnerable citizens and made them more dependent and trapped by that dependency on the federal government.
Socialism then has been a force to be reckoned with and although from time to time it has been focus of various political activist groups to expose the socialism and communism, and the left who wore the crown of liberalism as some sort of great badge for liberating the masses from capitalism and conservatism who had been morphing into socialism since the 1800s and a shift of speed with FDR. Now we have full-blown running the Shadow Government and the socialist/globalists which is the greater part of Congress. We have the Liberalist church eating away at the biggest threat to the socialist/globalist (equates into what we have been calling liberal for decades). But they are all Communist without total Marxism … yet
They all suffer from Christian phobia (We may call it Christianophobic) real Christianity brings terror to their inner soul. I read some interesting stuff in an opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen, it was a humorous piece of a real serious nature. It was about the way the Democratic Party “Name-Calling” or the way to use “ridicule” according to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals handbook. Thus, they ridicule by phobias the first to use phobias in “name calling” and using big words in arguments some of which they don’t even know the meaning, some have no meaning but have been manufactured by the MSM and the activist pick it up on the morning broadcast and use it in their confrontations with Conservatives and Christians.
In his article, he recommended the same by hitting them with words like sesquipedalian (google it) but when they start with their big words just say that word, roll your eyes, and walk away. Let them suffer from patriot-phobia.

Well, this has been a long article and I will let you get on with your research.

Starting to Smell Like Sulfer

Booker was given a pass by the Senate Ethics Committee
By Uriel | January 31, 2019, | Asshat Alert, CONSTITUTION:, MEDIA:, Tom Fitton/Judicial Watch, US Senate
The Senate Ethics Committee has been a JOKE for the last decade or more. While those in the House have been busy more often than not investigating Republicans in the last year, the Senate Ethics committee has not done even one single investigation period. The last news releases they did involve Al Franken and Robert Menendez in December 2017. Before that nothing as far back as 2012.
So what happened when Judicial Watch and others requested they look into the dirty methods Cory Booker used during the Kavanaugh hearing debacle. Zilch nothing to see here…move on is their comments!
Judicial Watch just issued a press release decrying the absolute uselessness of this committee. The U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics has refused to take action against Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who admitted to willfully violating Senate rules by releasing confidential records regarding then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s time as a White House counsel.
The letter was signed by Deborah Sue Mayer, Chief Counsel and Staff Director. Ms. Mayer personally advises Members of the Committee and Senate, and oversees the non-partisan staff in providing ethics advice and education, administering the Senate’s financial disclosure program, and conducting investigations and enforcement of ethics rules, laws and standards of conduct.
Prior to her work in the Senate, from July 2011 through January 2015, Ms. Mayer served as the Director of Investigations for the House Ethics Committee, overseeing all of the Committee’s investigations into Members of Congress or their staff.
The Senate Ethics Committee is evenly split, with three Republicans and three Democrats. The Committee members are Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Christopher A. Coons (D-DE), Pat Roberts (R-KS), Brian Schatz (D-HI), James Risch (R-ID), and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH).
According to their website, there are six staff counselors, five staff assistants, and two other administrative members listed. Yet not one real ethics decision has been entertained or been sent for consideration. How is that for use of taxpayer money!
Not one whisper out of the committee on how Feinstein withheld information from her own Senate party members or how Elizabeth Warren got away with her efforts set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without a full board membership or oversight by Congress.

Not one word on Senator Flake and his political malfeasance. Not one word on the abuse Democrat senators heaped on Kavanaugh nor their efforts to solicit “any or all” who might have thirty-year-old angst against a man who had already gone through six separate FBI investigations.
The JW press release listed why they thought the Ethics committee should investigate Cory Booker.
Sen. Booker admitted breaking Senate rules when he issued a tweet on Friday, September 7 saying:
Weds—I broke committee rules by reading from “Committee confidential” docs.
Also, Sen. Booker then posted the following entry on his Facebook account on Sunday, September 9:
And the classification of many documents as “Committee confidential” is a sham… I willfully violate these sham rules. I fully accept any consequences that might arise from my actions including expulsion.
Judicial Watch noted in its complaint that Sen. Booker also uploaded “Committee confidential” records to a publicly accessible Dropbox account with the heading “Booker Confidential – Kavanaugh Hearing Documents”.
By violating the rules in releasing Committee confidential records, Sen. Booker appeared to have violated provisions 5 and/or 6 of Rule 29 of the Standing Rules of the Senate (Rev. Jan. 24, 2013), which stipulate that he should be subject to expulsion from the Senate…
“It is an absolute disgrace that the Senate Ethics Committee is giving Senator Booker a pass for willfully violating Senate rules by leaking confidential information to smear Justice Kavanaugh,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Senate continues the abuse of Kavanaugh and his family by refusing to act against a Senator who, pretending to be Spartacus, violated the rule of law and our Constitution in trying to destroy him.”
Tom Fitton is absolutely right. If the committee members and the staff cannot seem to get any real ethics investigations done, then disband the committee or go outside the Senate to be responsible a respected constitutionalist retired Federal judge.
A group made of up of senators policing their own is ridiculous. The same applies to the House Ethics committee which is heavy on investigating Republicans right now but does appear to actually be working and taking complaints seriously.

The Message of 7 Churches

 

Ephesus AA

 

The Loveless Church

We come to the First Church in the list of Seven, (Rev. 2:1 – 7), However, if you recall some of the introduction in chapter one, it is the Lord Jesus’ revelation to His servant John and in verse three, “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.”
So, what does “is near” mean? Well God knew just how long it would take Christianity to run its faithful and committed course and He didn’t make me or anyone privy to how long it would actually be until the end of its age and sufferings, of its persecution. We do know that Jesus will come in the clouds and those who sleep in the Lord will rise first, then those of us who are still struggling along, will meet them in the air, in a twinkling of an eye. That will be the close of the church age, when Christ collects His church.
Chapter two verse l: — 7: “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, these things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven lampstands: — 2) ‘I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;’ – 3)’and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.’ – 4) ‘Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.’ – 5) ‘Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – un-less you repent.’ 6) ‘But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.’ 7) ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.’”
First, we are to understand that Jesus commends the church on the good that they have done and are currently doing. yet, with verse four God has a ‘Nevertheless’ as He strikes with the sword against their condition, they have left their first love. And the sword condemns this condition of falling from their first love, that love we have when we first surrender to Jesus as Lord of our lives, and the commitment we surrendered our soul to the kingship of our Lord Jesus.
We love Jesus because He loved us first, and for the born-again Christian, at the very moment of our rebirth, at the time of adoption and the death of the old nature, being justified in our new life, inside we fall in love with our Savior. Now, although that is correct and sounds wonderful, I do believe Jesus was referring to the First Commandment as Christians see it. “I am the Lord thy God – Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” One of the costs of the free gift of our salvation.
Jesus is God the Son – the incarnate God, Jesus who walked among His people, His creation. By grace through faith in Jesus we are redeemed to God and justified. God simply wants to be first in our lives and we are beside ourselves that God would want to be first in my life, He wants us, His church, to love him because He loves us, loves us enough to die for us of course, we love Him more than life; it is understandable that the church has become almost deniably obsessed in protecting our salvation as solely a free gift of God’s grace. Of which it is but it does cost us our lives as we knew them. I am proud that I chose the offer of grace and in return my surrender, my total surrender to His finite love.
Nonetheless, we all get caught up in the world in work, sleep time, church and that is where most of the problems lay, we spend – say, 40 hours a week working (providing we can get by on a 40-hour week. Then we spend around 56 hours sleeping, and we give God around 5 hours a week if we are not on staff, or say a Sunday school teacher, choir member, maybe a Deacon as well.
That should put a top member of the congregation with 10 – 14 hours for God plus prayer time, and the rest of 168-hour week for or in the world the world, and it begins to reflect in our lives and the rightful position of God in our lives, our minds have a lot more input of the world than of God. When we consider our condition or the condition of our church, we may want to get brutally honest with our self, because only you and God know the truth.
Before we first loved God, we are the center of our lives, after we are born again, we start our journey and work hard at putting the old man away, and we work even harder of putting God in the center of our lives, putting Jesus center and on his throne of our lives, our existence. We work hard, very hard as we start our Christian walk, our love for the Savior soars like the eagle then levels off somewhat as we float on the winds of God’s grace.
Then one day we look around and find we have been losing altitude unaware, we find our peace not so peaceful, we find that there have been unnoticed changes, Jesus is not found on the throne in life’s center and we are not on the submissive side as we were, but closer to the throne, now occupied by other worldly things like money, work, leisure enticements. We find anxiety and guilt for not paying attention to the things of God, and trouble in our lives is becoming serious.
We have not crashed our spiritual love in Jesus, and it is here that we can avert the nose dive of recession through cultural allurements and the wisdom of the world. Not keeping a real handle on the old nature, which although is claimed dead, when we are born again, all things made new, and for a while they are, they are until the demonic strength of the human nature’s appetites slowly erode our passion for the Lord, and unless we catch the slipping away, we will be overcome by the things of the world.
When we confess and repent and really experience the work of Christ, the work of Christ on the cross, the Death, Burial and resurrection, the motive for His horrific sacrifice, we find our rescue there at the cross. One Christian Counseling course explains this as identifying with the cross. I call it more of having God opening our eyes and ears, which He can do rather boldly, and the longer we ignore God’s little prodding’s the more intrusive and fouler they may become.
First, let me affirm my belief on something that has been denied and fervently rebuked by liberal political activists who along with other liberal organizations have come against fundamental Christianity, overtly since the 60s, but for some time in order to justify lifestyles that are less than simply sinful but vile evil sins, the whole thing of abortion dividing women, Christian women, Homosexuality dividing Christian churches and denominations. These divisions come with the bullying and intimidation of the media, the Hollywood elites, the UN and even the from President Obama. This in turn caused many Christians to seek a comfortable church, where they would not be under fire and persecution from the liberals. They found it in liberal theology.
We see a liberal church filled with people in a comfort zone, a comfortable church which had once done a lot of good works for Jesus, it involved most of them, but today, we have the comfortable. With 20 percent of the body doing 80 percent of the Lord’s work. At first, we probably had most of the people doing great work for Jesus’s name sake. While Pastoring, I become acquainted with a problem for Pastors as they were trying to figure out how to enlist volunteers for the various committees and duties of the church. That “rule of thumb” problem is simple and works its problematic nightmare nearly everywhere (except in liberalism), and that is 20% of the members do 80% of the work, and giving as well, it may not be the same ones … giving and working, because it seems we have the workers and the givers, most of the 20% are both, the smaller the church the greater the number of those who are committed.
Those who are genuinely committed to our Lord, don’t seek a comfortable church where they can be ministered to feel good in the community, and not be under the liberal attack and persecution. I use the present tense, because it is continuing on and probably will go on for years. One of the problems of the church falling from where it once was, is that the normal battle between Bible-believing Protestant churches and denominations, which in most part was the application of the various doctrinal and theological positions, most of which Bible believing Christians could agree to disagree on. Point is that most in-fighting was inconsequential to salvation.
Somewhere in or around the turn of the nineteenth century liberal theology was born in order to protect Christianity from the philosophers. But, he erroneously lumped Bible authority into his thought of the church learning to experience the total dependency on God and have nothing to do with any outside authority including the authority or the inerrancy and infallibility of the Word of God. Over the next dozen or so liberal theologians it simply went from bad to worse.
Original sin, then sin, the Virgin Birth, the Resurrection, Salvation by Grace through Faith alone, it is now God Consciousness and works or everyone will eventually all will be saved. Sorry folks but that is where liberal theology has taken the church. A brief study of liberal theology can show how it evolved over the years to now it is morphing into socialist theology along the lines of Karl Marx … perhaps, they may think that it will help later when most of the world will be ruled by a global socialist union.
Not the one-world government with the Anti-Christ, but the UN’s Global Socialist Union. The way things are going socially and with the American culture, now so lawless, no moral values, integrity gone, and a war against the church from outside and from inside. The lure of the world and its evil lawlessness has truly taken a hard-deep bite from the church and there is truly those who are born again believers who have left the biblical theology as they slipped from their intimate love relationship with Jesus and have sought the tolerance of liberal theology churches. knowing that liberal’s subculture will leave them alone and not mock their belief. They join the ranks that the liberals call tolerant. Tolerant of most things evil, as long as the elites call them okay. They have joined the ranks of those that have changed their view of the Bible being the inspired word of God, inerrant and infallible. Those who deny the virgin birth, the resurrection and being born anew by grace through the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross. These are the ones slipping away from their first love in Christ Jesus.
There was once a great Evangelist Dr. A.T. Pierson, and when he was asked: “Don’t you think the world is getting converted already?” his reply, “Well, I admit that the world has become a little churchy, but the church has become immensely worldly.”
The church at Ephesus was slipping away from Jesus, our first love, and the church has continued to slip, under the rise of and re-establishment of liberal theology, liberation theology. It has been allowed by God, I guess to keep us on our toes; only one problem of keeping us on our toes is that we have to have the ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. We are being destroyed from within and it seems like no one really cares. In general, there are only few preachers who preach the Bible against the wiles of liberalism in its various forms.
Conservative biblical churches are being torn apart by liberalism, post modernism … and the liberal global or one world government’s push through liberalism/socialism. Liberal theology and political liberalism mold well into socialism, and when the church begins to fall away from Jesus and the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God, they believe the lies of the false prophets, teachers and politicians of the world.
He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Christian church. He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Christian.

CROW PIE … (maybe)

 

 

 

Guess Crow Tastes Rather Foul

How do I write such disappointment in the way the “Republicans” have rallied and responded to the critical need to get out and vote? Like my last post indicated: “You can stand in a garage, but that does not make you a Cadillac, and you can call yourself a Christian Patriot by that don’t make you a Patriot or a Christian. what the voting is showing is that there is one thing for sure, we either have more socialist than ever thought or the Christian Patriots are more apathetic than they pretend to be.
I am sure that there was a ton of voter fraud and rigged polling stations even hacked stations, otherwise, we would not have lost and that is a hard-studied opinion, (I’ll leave the evidence gathering to other, better equipped, smarter people than me).
I will have to live with a loss if indeed that is the case and try hard not to go burn down my neighborhood, although that is what the Democrats would do. I will try to contain my disdain for liberalism and just plain evil people and communicate with the Freedom Caucus and hopefully, my Representative will still be there, even if we lose the House.
If we do wind up with the loss and by some miscarriage of grace, Nancy Pelosi retakes Speaker we won’t be that much worse off than when Ryan and the RINOs were in place. What it means is that everything Trump started and wanted to start will go up with a poof.
I don’t think Trump will resort to telling the people “I have a phone and a pen.” I don’t foresee massive parades of conservative women marching nude, or costumed as giant vaginas, and riots burning down poor neighborhoods. You do understand, conservative women have more self-respect than does the liberal socialists.
Notice, I have already started to control my deep disdain. My overwhelming disappointment is much harder to control, so, I will attempt to confine most of my writing to concern liberalism in the church and how liberal politics and liberal theology has broken the Church. I do believe I will rewrite some of my previous posts on the Seven Sins, on the Seven Churches, on Liberal Theology and Biblical Systematic Theology.
God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit, and the Bible where God reveals Himself to us His creation, perhaps in our fever to see this nation fixed we have somehow begun to drift from God’s leadership. Perhaps, just perhaps, we need to keep God in His rightful place, the center of our lives and not move Him to the side while we attempt to fix our corrupted Nation, we should not lose our passion for fixing our nation and removing the evil corruption in politics but be the vessel which He uses to fix the Church.
Perhaps, He may know they have to be done at the same time, or what progress is made in one will be negated by the other. If we fix the Church, corruption will negate the fix with just the same way they originally broke it. If the nation is restored, then the liberal theology church will pander to the liberal socialist politicians and put them back in power to save their sinful, vile disgusting imitation of true Christianity.
My battle is a Holy War, one of which I know the end, but these battles I fight are two fronted yet the same battle against liberalism. The fronts of political socialism and the vile liberalism that has broken the Christian church in America and the western free world and some battles we win and some we don’t. Of course, we have been fighting this Holy War since Adam sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, sure there are those who will blame Eve, but she was simply the vehicle of Temptation it was God who instructed Adam thou shalt not, assuredly Eve was there and heard as well, However, it was Adam who was accountable for the sin, not the help-mate God provided.
Oh yes, God provided a help-mate … not a slave or rug – And that will preach very well, not as the liberal Christians have tried to use it against men and the church for forever. Liberalism has mocked the Word of God (Bible) and misused and abused it to the point that they have taken away the inerrancy, infallibility, Authority and divine inspiration. Oh, and those who still “cling” to the Bible are some sort of back-woodsy folks of antiquity believing in an antique fantasy.
Liberal theology like liberal socialism is the weapon used by global socialists who apparently want to get ahead of God’s plan for a one-world Government, God’s plan reveals the Beast and the Anti-Christ. Liberalism wants to establish a Global Socialist Union before they put on display the Anti-Christ who will sit on the throne in the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. Power, Wealth, and a socialist Satanic religion. However, it won’t happen until God’s time.
So, as in the title of my last post, “You can stand in a garage but, it doesn’t make you a Cadillac; You can call yourself a Christian Patriot, but it doesn’t make you a Patriot and it doesn’t make you a Christian.”
Unless we like eating Crow pie, we have to arrive at the point of being both, arriving (Arrive – verb – reach a place at the end of a journey or a stage in a journey.) being a verb implies action, ah yes action like in the Christian community it would signify fruit, or good work for the Lord. For the patriot non-Christian their journey begins when they open their eyes to the brainwashing and the tactics used by liberalism to control Government, Taxes, Jobs, lives, lives dependent on a socialist government.
That journey as great and noble is a war against the ideologies of socialism and the ideologies of a free market, the free market of a free and sovereign nation, the leader of the world, with a constitutional government, a great nation, a world power, a nation divided by liberalism and at war with itself. This Journey of the patriot is battling the liberal socialist corruption and globalism and the politicians and a critical partner in the journey Christians are fighting against liberalism.
In our bull-headedness over the past 60 or so years, non-Christians and Christians have been at odds over a lot of seemingly non-relevant issues, and the two groups bump heads often about the issue of Christian moral values and principles which of course, is what the founders built the nation on … the Christian principles is why the rest of the world and our own people called us a Christian nation.
A survey conducted on the streets of various cities and towns across our nation, cities, and towns involved not in politics but a bonified poll for demographics research by a major seminary. In the late 90s, they asked random people of all ages beginning at the age of 12, The seminary pollsters found that over 90% of the people responded … “Christian,” when asked what religion they were … and gave this answer when asked how they knew they were Christian? … “Because I am American.” This changed the way I witnessed to people I met. I don’t know how many of those people were actually Christian, don’t much care about their motivation for saying they were Christian because they are Americans because that was not the point now was it? Point is, it took nearly two decades before people were brainwashed by liberal lies that we are not a Christian nation.
Nonetheless, most of that patriotic Christianity has been nearly washed away with 6 or so decades of decaying morals and patriotism which condition is rooted deep in the 60s, but over the past 4 decades has simply been beyond belief especially with Hillary Clinton and Obama. It is when the Republicans and Democratic radicals attempted to flip the parties to socialism, global socialism.
I believe that the Democrat party actually has gone socialist or even communist while the Republicans have, in part, failed to turn the party but left groups of socialists and globalist. Most people call them RINOs, and ‘never Trumper’s, but even they are not as vile and disgusting individuals. Thing is, we have a whole generation (millennials) with the majority in bankruptcy, moral bankruptcy.
Moral bankruptcy, and everything in between evil and vile demonic. Problem is, it has been a total Holy War against true Christianity and against America itself. These people are under some delusion, some evil delusion. The leaders and politicians simply think they are above the law. The press has lost all integrity and ethics … simply making up what they want and say and when called on it, it is something they claim a source even anonymous sources, and they sell their lies off as truth. The press is nothing more than gossips, and propaganda for monetary gain or political favor.

Stay tuned, as I examine the broken church, with an occasional political issue or story as our patriots uncover and confront the evil that seeps from the politicians and sub-culture groups. Groupies flocking around protests for a ten-spot even violent acts, and a lot of wide-mouth fakers who just happen to show up at a lot of events, what is it they call them? Ah yes, crisis and protest paid performers.

Standing in a Garage Don’t Make You a Cadillac …

Standing in the garage does not make you a Cadillac, or Saying you are a Christian Patriot does not make you a Patriot or a Christian.

I have often written of the ugly change in our culture, especially, where it deals with the Christian community and of course, the Political corruption of progressivism and socialism. It is quite true that mankind has always been destined to progress and move forward as he moved more and more toward God and that was from the time of the Garden lesson of God means what He says.
While writing my book, “A Splintered Nation and A Broken Church,” I went back to show the Christian intent of the Mayflower Pac, to not only protect Christians but, those non-believers who were readying the disembarking of the Ship and establishing the Colony. The government of that Colony knew they had to protect the non-believers from a state religion while protecting the religion of the Colony, it is my opinion, that it really was a matter of survival that they all commit to stay and make it through the winter and the next several years of building.
Nevertheless, as the book progresses through the political and protestant corruption on a hopscotch ride on the milk train, stopping at the points of particular interest with Presidents, Political Parties, and various battles in the Holy War waged by Satan against the Christian church which is real and continues to gain in intensity.
While writing my book, which I hope will open eyes of Christians and non-believers as well, about what the Holy War against Christianity has in a large part been enabled by Modernity, or rather a slow growth of liberalism, which over the past four decades has been effectively overtaken by socialism. However, there is no way that the majority of our nation would have simply given up our Sovereign Republic and Constitutional Freedoms for a Socialist regime and a Global Socialist Union.
Since the 60s with liberal celebrities who committed high treason during the Viet Nam war along with hot-dog John McCain or as some of his fellow prisoners of war called him “Songbird.” However, it is in the 60s that the Democrats had to make a decision in what to do about the Republican Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a Black Baptist Pastor who had had enough of the Jim Crow laws of the Democratic South.
Dr. King was the public figure who was not a Democrat in the issue, The Democrats who had regained control of the South after Reconstruction. Oh yes, the Democrat Party – the founders of the KKK, the Southern States passing State Legislation which became known as the “Jim Crow” laws, the “Equal but no the same” Democrats. It was Dr. King that took the Civil Rights right to Washington. Kennedy had no way to go, so he went against his own party in the South, and won the loyalty of the blacks, that loyalty to the Democrat Party quickly became shackles and they once again were on a plantation – The Democrat Political Plantation.
For Dr. King’s participation, he was killed. For Kennedy, he was killed, and for his Brother the AG and sure winner of a campaign, he was killed as well. it does leave one to wonder how far the leaders of the Democrats would go, to keep the black citizens on a plantation, the Democrat plantation.
For five or so decades, one of the main things that have stood in the way of making this a socialist nation has been the church. Oh yes, Christian values and the defeat of our values meant that the Christians needed to be persecuted and the Bible discredited. That war started a long time ago, and one of the main issues for the founding of our nation, religious freedom, and all that goes along with it. It is not that God didn’t keep up with man’s advancements, He didn’t heave to, he didn’t have to change anything, the man simply needed to slow down and be blessed with the work of their hands and minds. Mankind needed to listen to God, and not fall to their own understanding.
The moral values of our nation stood in the way of evil progression. Moral values were written into the Constitution protecting the Christians and the non-Christian from the evil of the world. It has never been applied without flaw, the Constitution nor Christianity, however, without the Constitution and Christianity we would have been a communist union within just a few years after the 2nd world war and the formation of Socialist President FDR’s United Nations. Of course, he served more terms than any other president and yes, helped bring us out of a world depression.
But he was nevertheless, a socialist and when he put the United Nations together he had hopes that socialism would take hold and the world could be governed by one supreme government while keeping their identity and borders but the borders would be open and in addition to being the citizens of that nation we would, more importantly, be citizen-subjects of the world … in short a one world order and that is how the UN charter was originated under the façade of global peace.
Well my, my, my, that is a quandary because socialism to work would mean that no one is actually free. The First Amendment, Second and the rest would have to be subject to the UN Council of unelected officials. For the Christian, that would mean we would no longer be able to practice our religion, and for the Atheist? They would be in the same boat with no protection from a “state religion.” Perhaps, that is a bit too simply put, but truth be known true Christianity and socialism cannot be the bed-fellows that liberals falsely claim. Not that Christianity (as it presently is in its broken stage), is only compatible with Theocracy and that is not likely to happen until Jesus comes. Then, as promised it will work in total peace for a thousand years.
The reason for me joining the Black Robe Regiment was that it was a non-denominational Christian presence in our war on liberalism and corruption of government it was, what seemed to be a Christian “regiment,” in the American war against corruption/liberalism/socialism/globalism and all of its anti-American hoards. Patriot American Christians who stand for the Constitution and the sovereign free republic.
Of course, all Christians should be patriots although all patriots are not necessarily Christian, as a matter of theological fact, not all Christians are Christian. That fact is, or rather could be a problem for the Regiment to reach its potential in making a difference in the battle we face. So as Christians we must examine ourselves, whether we be in the faith; prove (test) ourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? (2Cor. 13:5 NKJV (my paraphrase).
I am not suggesting the Christians who are part of The Black Robe Regiment are not Christian, no not at all, as a matter of fact, it is my studied opinion that each is just what they say they are. I believe, they really want to get involved and commit to winning the war! Some joined to show support for the fighting regiment. The Regiment needs the support and more members who are committed to Jesus Christ and are patriotic conservatives with really thick skin!
I expect to be put out of the Black Robe Regiment because of my problem with liberalism. That is where our national problem is rooted. Christians have been persecuted since before they were first called Christians at Antioch. But, we can’t blame Jesus for not warning us, he said we would be persecuted for His name’s sake and that the world would hate us because it hated Him first.
It is said that more than half of the professing Christians don’t ever vote, and that of those most are not even registered to vote. For some reason, as Christians, they don’t consider it an obligation to vote even engage in politics what so ever. Could it be, that liberalism has intimidated them into believing Hugo Blacks Supreme Court Decision about Church and State? Or maybe when the Supreme Court Decision to okay the execution of millions of unborn children? Perhaps it could have been the embarrassment of Prohibition brought on by the Christian temperance ladies.
Christianity and over zealous preachers and leaders have made some huge mistakes since landing in Boston Harbor, and that is to be accepted and considered a lesson in how not to delineate the love of Jesus to people not of the church. Speaking of the church, well, I would refer to the Seven Churches of Asia Minor, and how, like the Hebrew Children had such a hard time getting it right. The church like a pendulum swings to and fro on “saved to by grace through faith unto good works. We have some sort of problem with church doctrines and of course, what we should be doing in Biblical doctrines.
Since the landing at Boston Harbor, the Christian church has been hot and cold, and instead of sticking to the Bible we as Christians have followed after our own appetites and although in most cases that has been trying to please God and man at the same time and that is impossible as you may well know. No, our problem is sort of explained in the Seven Deadly Sins and having an easy church is one huge calling card.
Most people I know, Christian or otherwise, don’t find a great joy in being persecuted and all the name calling, and just ugliness of persecution is enough to make the strongest of souls get rather jellied. Since the 60s the world has made deep erodes into the Bible-believing church. Liberalism has brought back the liberal theology (updated), and one of the big reasons for such a broken church in America today. I will try to stay clear of the liberal theology argument and its harm to conservative Christianity, and deal with organizing Christians to take up arms against the enemy.
The “arms” in this situation is the double-edged sword and the second weapon is the vote. The enemy is far more than political ideologies, it is the root of all destruction, it is Lucifer, or rather, Satan and in my opinion the author of socialism, liberalism, liberation theology, and social justice ideologies. Ideologies that are found in a Global Socialist Union. Just one plan of thousands that the diabolical Satan has to draw on in his war against Jesus and His Church, against the guaranteed freedom of religious expression.
My endeavor, my passion is Jesus Christ, Jesus of the Bible, the Bible as the living Word of God. It is also my endeavor to protect not only religious freedom but to protect our Constitution and our sovereign free republic. The United States was founded on Christian principles fact and not as the liberals have spent 5 – 6 decades trying their level best to discredit the Christian faith, the Bible, and the Christian connection to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. Liberals deny the religious freedom and use Justice Hugo Black’s “Separation of Church and State” decision to start the persecution of the Christian faith.
The Christian faith at this point is in critical need of another great awakening. A revival that the Christian may repent and return to our first love, the love for Christ and the excitement of being set free … “saved by grace through faith unto good works” don’t know about you but that was my first love, my first real commitment was as a young man leaving Highschool and taking the Oath of Service (office) in the Army, that oath was not infringed until my total commitment to Jesus and the Christian faith. Both were more than a head knowledge both were made from the heart. Revival is awakening that same excitement and renewing the nearly forgotten commitment. The Black Robe Regiment is the place for you to commit to pick up arms and commit to fighting head-on in a Holy War and not an easy war.
Vote go out and vote! Vote Red, vote conservative, report any suspicions of voter fraud!
Then go and check out the Black Robe Regiment … join … and pick up your cross and follow Jesus. Commit to the revival in our nation and restore our land as a Christian nation.
Many Christians wrongly think they are not supposed to get involved in politics. It is my studied opinion that not only are we supposed to get involved but are obligated to get involved, otherwise, dear Christian we get what we presently have, Broken Church and that is not what Jesus wants and is reflected in His Seven Churches of Asia Minor. Our lack of or fear of involvement has given us the liberal theology churches where it is E-A-S-Y church. liberal theology churches can be found in the five condemned by Jesus.
I may not be long for the Black Robe Regiment because of my disdain for liberal theology and liberation theology. If your church does not have in its mission statement the inerrancy, the infallibility of the Word of God, The Deity of Jesus Christ, and Salvation by Grace through Faith in Jesus unto good works and is any way politically correct then leave and find one who does … if your preachers do not preach against homosexuality, against abortion, and sin in general then run and find one that does.
If your church is not taking Jesus to the community by doing the good works and being involved in the community then you will lose, find out which one of the Seven churches your church may be like, perhaps more. Revival will never happen in a liberal church or a worldly church. Can’t, because they don’t have the intestinal fortitude get in the trenches, pick up their cross and follow Jesus. They don’t have enough Jesus in them to preach the Bible and preach against sin and corruption in the church and in our nation’s politics. Vote get out and vote!
