Socialism and Christianity

In the present political and religious climate in America, the topic of Socialism has become more prominent. I’ve noticed an increase in the talk related to Socialism. This is because of the left-leaning media and schools that have produced a misguided sympathy for contra-constitutional ideas. According to Pew Research, 42% of Americans have a positive impression of Socialism, 84% of Republicans are negative towards it, with 65% of Democrats having a positive view. This isn’t good. I will explain why. But, first things first.

What is Socialism?

Socialism is a political and social system in which private property and the distribution of goods are subject to social and centralized governmental control. A socialist economy discourages private ownership of property. In fact, it often reduces and eliminates it. Socialism also increases the movement towards government control of the economy and businesses and the confiscation of assets. However, this reduces efficiency and slows the economy. Furthermore, it demotivates individuals from taking risks to produce and be rewarded for what they provide because the means of production can be “confiscated,” and/or “controlled,” by those in government.

Command Theory versus Demand Theory

In a very basic simplification, Socialism is a command economy where capitalism is a demand economy. This means that in Socialism, the means of production and distribution are commanded by governmental oversight. In capitalism, the demand produced by the population’s needs is met by the people, not the government. That is a huge difference. In Socialism, the means of production and distribution are decided by relatively few people who cannot possibly have enough knowledge to know which particular subcategories of production and distribution are needed so they can be applied to the varying situations and nuances of a broad and complicated economy. In capitalism, the demand/need of the people is manifested through consumption. Those individuals who meet the need of that consumption then govern their own means of production and distribution. They are rewarded for their efforts and are motivated to continue to produce. It is far more efficient. In Socialism, individuality is reduced. In capitalism, it is increased. 

Strengths of Socialism

Every political system has strengths and weaknesses. In Socialism, its strengths are:

1. The goal of fairness to all regarding obtaining goods.

2. The intention of reducing poverty and increasing personal standard of living.

3. The restriction of the rich having great power that is out of balance with the population.

4. Cost of production can be controlled.

5. Cost of distribution and sales can be controlled.

These are lofty goals, but reality does not meet those goals. Socialism has been tried in various countries and failed miserably. And, for those who think some European countries do well in Socialism, think again. Europe is not socialistic. 

Weaknesses of Socialism

Socialism has definite problems. In it, the government owns or controls production and the distribution of what is produced. It decides what is best for the majority of people based on the analysis and opinions of those in power. But, it also has harmful side-effects.

1.  Inefficiency: Those in power cannot be aware of all the details necessary to run a large economy with its incredibly complex means of production on various intricate and interrelated levels. Instead, those best able to manage their affairs are involved with their work, not government-run agencies.

2.  Demotivation: When the government is in control and takes from individuals the right to produce and distribute goods as they see fit, it demotivates them to take risks in starting businesses and reaping the benefits of that risk. This reduces the efficiency and power of the economy.

3.  Slows economy: Socialism slows down the economy because the risk-takers do not want to produce as much under penalty that their hard work would be confiscated for redistribution. When the economy slows down, everyone is affected.

4.  Encourages governmental oppression: The government, in order to continue its control of production and distribution, must continue to consolidate its own power. To do this, it must pass more laws to ensure its control. This naturally leads to the oppression of people who would resist.

5.  Bureaucratic red tape: Red tape is like molasses (see point 3 above). It moves slowly. Red tape reduces the efficiency necessary to meet the immediate demands within an economy.

6.  Cost of production increases and money is devalued: With the demotivation of people to produce and manage their own affairs with detailed efficiency, the government slows, production decreases, and the costs of goods increases. The government will then look to imports to meet the needs of its own slowed economic growth. This means the money that is best used within its own economy will leave and go to other countries. This devalues the currency in that socialist country and decreases the rate and means of internal production.

7.  Misunderstand human nature: People are not basically good and altruistic. Socialism may have lofty goals, but history teaches us that people are not as good as they should be. For the most part, they don’t lookout for the welfare of others. They look out for themselves. But Socialism reduces the security of the population and foils the lofty goal of equitability.

An analogy of Socialism and grades in a classroom

Let’s say there are 30 students in a classroom. Ten of the students work very hard and get A’s. Ten of the students do the minimal work and get C’s. The remaining ten students hardly work at all and get F’s. The socialist-teacher (government) decides to distribute all of the grades (goods) evenly for the whole’s betterment. Therefore, he averages all the grades and decides that everyone gets a grade of C. When the A-students discover that their grades do not reflect their hard work, they complain. The teacher disregards their complaints. The A-students are demotivated and don’t work as hard.

The C-students realize that the hard work of the A-students is given to them. So, they don’t need to work as hard because they are getting the redistributed-benefit of someone else’s work. The F-students realize that if they do nothing, they will still get a better grade. So, they don’t work at all. This causes a further reduction of overall hard work (goods) in the classroom (society). The overall control of the grade distribution (Socialism) required by the socialist-teacher (government) then drops from a C to a D. Seeing this, the A and C Students realize the lack of fairness of this system and are further demotivated. But when they complain, they are threatened by the teacher with even lower grades (fines and imprisonment) if they resist his socialist governance. The lazy students, of course, like the system because it rewards their laziness. Therefore, the producers don’t want to work at all, and everyone ends up failing. The teacher sees that the overall production of quality of grades (goods) has plummeted and that most everyone is now suffering from a lower quality product. Therefore, he passes a classroom rule requiring that everybody work harder, and he imposes the threat of giving an F to everyone if they don’t work harder (fines and imprisonment). But this is met with resistance and futility since the system rewards the unproductive and penalizes the producers, and bad grades (goods) are the new norm. Eventually, the whole system collapses, the productive students abandon the class and go elsewhere.

Venezuela and Socialism

A review of Venezuela’s decline from the third most prosperous country in the hemisphere to bankruptcy, riots, and starvation can be seen in the following timeline that began with the introduction of socialist policies.

  • 1992 Became the third richest country in the hemisphere
  • 1998, Hugo Chavez elected president. Through the “Bolivarian Revolution” brings in a new constitution that brought socialist policies.
  • 2001, Chavez passes laws aimed at the redistribution of land and wealth.
  • 2004 Private healthcare is completely socialized
  • 2005, Chavez signs a decree to eliminate large estates and removal of private property
  • 2005, Stiff fines and prison terms for those in media who criticized public figures.
  • 2006, Chavez shifts buying military equipment from the U.S. to Russia.
  • 2007, Chavez announces that “key energy and telecommunication companies will be nationalized.”
  • 2007 All higher education becomes free
  • 2007, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhilips refused to hand over control of operations to the Venezuelan government and are then kicked out of the country
  • 2009, Voters approve the plan to abolish term limits.
  • 2009, Socialists banned private ownership of guns
  • 2012, the government enforces price controls on essential goods to battle against inflation.
  •  2014, 28 people die in the suppression of an anti-government protest
  • 2017, Constitution and elections are suspended
  • 2018, U.N. says 2 million Venezuelans have fled to neighboring countries since 2014

Is this what we want for the United States? No! Why then, do so many politicians take an oath to uphold the Constitution, yet they promote socialist ideas?

Is Socialism biblical?

No, Socialism is not biblical. Socialism stands in opposition to biblical principles. In the Bible, people have the right to do with their property is they desire (Acts 5:4), as well as have a representative form of government (Ex. 18:21-22Deut. 1:13), where there is self-governance (Matt. 18:15-17), private property rights (Ex. 20:17), the liberty to act freely (2 Cor. 3:171 Pet. 2:16), along with capitalist principles (Matt. 21:33-4125:14-30) and where the law requires a fair trial with witnesses (Deut. 19:15Matt. 18:16)

1.  A representative form of government

1.  Exodus 18:21-22, “Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens. 22 Let them judge the people at all times; and let it be that every major dispute they will bring to you, but every minor dispute they themselves will judge. So it will be easier for you, and they will bear the burden with you.”

2.  Deut. 1:13, “Choose wise and discerning and experienced men from your tribes, and I will appoint them as your heads.'”

2.  Self-governance

1.  Matthew 18:15-17, “If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother. 16 But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED. 17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.”

3.  Private Property rights

1.  Exodus 20:17, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

2.  Acts 5:4, “While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”

4.  The principle of liberty and freedom

1.  2 Cor. 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

2.  Gal. 5:1, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.”

3.  1 Peter 2:16, “Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bond slaves of God.”

5.  Capitalist Principles

1.  Matt. 25:14-30. This is the parable of the talents where the master gives the servants different amounts of money and requires them to produce more out of what they have been given.

2.  Matt. 21:33-41. This is the parable of the landowner leaving servants in charge of his vineyard. He owned the vineyard and required proper treatment of his people and his property.

6.  Witnesses and fair trial

1.  Deut. 19:15, “A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any iniquity or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.”

2.  Matt. 18:16, “But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED.”

Can a Christian be a Socialist?

In light of the Scriptures, can a Christian be a socialist? In one sense, yes, and another, no. Christians can be all kinds of things without realizing they contradict Scripture. Being a socialist or capitalist does not make someone a Christian or not a Christian. Nevertheless, a Christian who studies the Bible and submits to its revelatory truth cannot correctly hold to socialistic ideas.

Conclusion

Socialism is nice in theory but fails in practice. It seeks equity in the equal distribution of goods, but in so doing reduces efficiency, demotivates people, penalizes those who work hard, and rewards those who do not. It is a failed system and should not be adopted in the United States or anywhere else in the world. Furthermore, it is unbiblical that it restricts freedom, reduces private property rights, endangers self-governance, denies representative governance, and essentially takes what one person has produced, in the form of legalized theft, and gives it to others.

President Trump’s Accomplishments

With early voting already underway and Election Day only a couple of weeks away, we need to remind everyone of President Trump’s accomplishments. He has done more for the USA in less than four years than Joe Biden in 50 years. Sadly, many people have never heard of them because of the biased media. Others refuse to hear about them because of their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

President Trump has given us 300 great judges on the lower courts. He has also given us three Supreme Court Justices far superior than Roberts and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He defeated ISIS and brought our troops home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

He met with the North Korean Dictator. No other president did anything to stop North Korea from gaining more power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president, at least in the last 100 years. He is a dedicated pro-life advocate that, unlike most Republicans, backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy even to try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn’t pander. He instead cleared the deadwood and opened pathways up to get a higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told “you didn’t build that” and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was “as good as it would ever get,” that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969, the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay than I can remember. President Trump then responded to the most massive pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

1) America’s biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.

2) He closed travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist,” “xenophobic,” and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile, he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Governor Cuomo’s nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, it seems that we are now in the period they told us would be phase two; it looks like we seem to have hit that “best-case scenario” at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton’s team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Department of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah, we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called “press” and Congress who did things that were an embarrassment to our Country. He has single-handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style, and frankly his courage, he has told those who genuinely are: “Enemies of the people.” Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution, and the free market are not just enemies of the people; they are enemies of the freedom of all humanity.

He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all “Sunshine Patriots.” History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine. In contrast, others not only rang the bell but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation, and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

One hundred years from now, history will judge all of us. So will our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others, like President Trump, I believe, will be seen as indispensable.

SBTS to Pay Reparations to Black Students

This is deeply troubling to me. The Cooperative Program helps support all the SBC seminaries. Most SBC churches contribute part of your tithes and offerings to the CP. One of the objections to stop contributing to the CP is that it supports missionaries. The church can still support any missionaries they want without sending money to the CP.

If you are a member of an SBC church, It is your duty to know what your money is supporting.

I have updated this with the actual news article.

What if the ‘Rats Win?

What if God in His perfect Will allows the ‘Rats to win the elections in November? All we need to do is read the Book of Isaiah to see how God has worked in the past. As many of you know, I’ve written “A Prophetic Message to the USA,” which relates Isaiah’s words to the United States in 2020. God has allowed Satan to use his minions to infiltrate our government at all levels. Make no mistake, the ‘Rats have been taken over by Satan. They don’t even hide it. Their platform states that they are removing God from their agenda as well as supporting pure evil policies.

Should God allow Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to win, and should He also let the Senate and House fall under the ‘Rats control, we are going to have a very tough time. If this happens in our states, it will be even more challenging. According to Romans 13, we are commanded to support our government, but I’m not sure that applies when it openly hates God and all He is and stands for.

If the ‘Rats win in November, they already vow to destroy one branch of government and transform the U.S. Senate into another House of Representatives, where simple majority rules and “fickleness and passion” carry the day, to quote James Madison. They have already stated they will “pack” the Supreme Court with as many Justices as necessary to keep the majority that supports them. They do not want the court to interpret the law as its design but become a super legislative branch of government.

Recently Keith Olberman ranted on his YouTube channel that President Trump and all of his supporters should be “prosecuted, convicted, and removed” from society. For what, he doesn’t say. “Trump can be and must be expunged,” Olbermann begins. “The hate he has triggered, the pandora’s box he has opened — they will not be so easily destroyed. So, let us brace ourselves. The task is twofold. The terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured at the ballot box.” He continued, “And then he, and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees, and the William Barrs, and the Sean Hannities, and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Guilianis, and the Kyle Rittenhouses, and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society while we try to rebuild it and rebuild the world Trump has nearly destroyed by turning it over to a virus,” Olberman ranted.

Not only has Olberman gone off the deep end, the former CEO of Twitter, Dick Costello, stated a couple of weeks ago, “Me-first capitalists who think you can separate society from business are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution. I’ll happily provide video commentary.”

The Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, recently said that “everything is on the table” if they win. I’m not even going to talk about Ms. Satan, Nancy Pelosi, and the things she has said and done.

We know that history repeats itself because people refuse to learn from it. All anyone needs to do is to look at Germany in the 1920s and ’30s to see the relationship of the Nazi’s to the “Rats in the USA for the last four years. It is amazing to see the comparison between the two.

All Christians need to fall on their knees and pray to God that He has mercy on us in this election. It may be too late for us. We have allowed the murder of more than 68,000,000 babies since 1972. We have allowed the government to support and promote the LGBTQ lifestyle. These are just a couple of violations of God’s Word we have allowed. There are many others. He may choose to allow us to go through the turmoil just like He did Judah in the time of Isaiah. In that case, we must pray for His protection.

May God bless the USA.

Propaganda — Common Sense Corner

The Coming Coup

By Michael Anton

Democrats are laying the groundwork for revolution right in front of our eyes.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.

It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: “Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.”

All this enthused Joe Biden, who threw subtlety to the winds. The former United States Senator (for 26 years) and Vice President (for eight) has not once, not twice, but thrice confidently asserted that the military will “escort [Trump] from the White House with great dispatch” should the president refuse to leave. Another former Vice President, Al Gore, publicly agreed.

One might dismiss such comments as the ravings of a dementia patient and a has-been who never got over his own electoral loss. But before you do, consider also this. Over the summer a story was deliberately leaked to the press of a meeting at which 100 Democratic grandees, anti-Trump former Republicans, and other ruling class apparatchiks got together (on George Soros’s dime) to “game out” various outcomes of the 2020 election. One such outcome was a clear Trump win. In that eventuality, former Bill Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, playing Biden, refused to concede, pressured states that Trump won to send Democrats to the formal Electoral College vote, and trusted that the military would take care of the rest.

The leaked report from the exercise darkly concluded that “technocratic solutions, courts, and reliance on elites observing norms are not the answer here,” promising that what would follow the November election would be “a street fight, not a legal battle.”

Two more data points (among several that could be provided). Over the summer, two former Army officers, both prominent in the Democrat-aligned “national security” think tank world, wrote an open letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in which they urged him to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to drag President Trump from the Oval Office at precisely 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021.

About a month later, Hillary Clinton declared publicly that Joe Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.” The old English major in me interprets the word “any” to mean “no,” “none,” “nada,” “niente,” “zero,” “zilch” “bupkis”…you get the idea.

This doesn’t sound like the rhetoric of a political party confident it will win an upcoming election.

The Cover-Up in Plain Sight

These items are, to repeat, merely a short but representative list of what Byron York recently labeled “coup porn.” York seems to think this is just harmless fantasizing on the part of the ruling class and its Democratic servants. For some of them, no doubt that’s true. But for all of them? I’m not so sure.

In his famously exhaustive discussion of conspiracies, Machiavelli goes out of his way to emphasize the indispensability of “operational security”—i.e., silence—to success. The first rule of conspiracy is, you do not talk about the conspiracy. The second rule of conspiracy is, you do not talk about the conspiracy.

So why are the Democrats—publicly—talking about the conspiracy?

Because they know that, for it to succeed, it must not look like a conspiracy. They need to plant the idea in the public mind, now, that their unlawful and illegitimate removal of President Trump from office will somehow be his fault.

Never mind the pesky detail that the president would refuse to leave only if he were convinced he legitimately won. Remember: Biden should not concede under any circumstances.

The second part of the plan is either to produce enough harvested ballots—lawfully or not—to tip close states, or else dispute the results in close states and insist, no matter what the tally says, that Biden won them. The worst-case scenario (for the country, but not for the ruling class) would be results in a handful of states that are so ambiguous and hotly disputed that no one can rightly say who won. Of course, that will not stop the Democrats from insisting that they won.

The public preparation for that has also already begun: streams of stories and social media posts “explaining” how, while on election night it might look as if Trump won, close states will tip to Biden as all the mail-in ballots are “counted.”

The third piece is to get the vast and loud Dem-Left propaganda machine ready for war. That leaked report exhorted Democrats to identify “key influencers in the media and among local activists who can affect political perceptions and mobilize political action…[who could] establish pre-commitments to playing a constructive role in event of a contested election.” I.e., in blaring from every rooftop that “Trump lost.”

At this point, it’s safe to assume that unless Trump wins in a blowout that can’t be overcome by cheating and/or denied via the ruling class’s massive propaganda operation, that’s exactly what every Democratic politician and media organ will shout.

Stop the Presses

What then? The Podesta assumption is that the military will side with the Dems. There are reasons to fear they might. The Obama administration spent a great deal of political capital purging the officer corps of anyone not down with the program and promoting only those who are.

Still and all, determining the outcome of an election would be the most open political interference possible from our allegedly apolitical military, and it’s plausible that the brass won’t want to make its quiet support of the ruling class agenda that overt. The aforementioned Chairman has already stated that the military will play “no role” in the outcome of the election. That’s probably not a feint, but one wonders if it will hold given the obvious attempt to influence military thinking by people like Jeffrey Goldberg in his recent Atlantic essay.

Can the Dems rely on the Secret Service to drag Trump out? I have my doubts on this one. I’ve seen the Service up close; it really is (or strongly appears to be) apolitical. It has a job to do: protect the president, whoever that is. Officers take that job very seriously. If they don’t believe Trump lost, I don’t think they can be counted on to oust him. On the other hand, were they to believe he did lose and was refusing to leave—a scenario I find impossible to imagine but the Democrats insist is just around the corner—it’s possible the Service might act.

Barring all that, what’s left? Remember that phrase from the Dem war game: “street fight.” In other words, a repeat of this summer, only much, much bigger. Crank the propaganda to ear-drum shattering decibels and fill the streets of every major city with “protesters.” Shut down the country and allow only one message to be heard: “Trump must go.”

I.e., what’s come to be known as a “color revolution,” the exact same playbook the American deep state runs in other countries whose leadership they don’t like and is currently running in Belarus. Oust a leader—even an elected one—through agitation and call it “democracy.”

The events of the last few months may be interpreted as an attempted color revolution that failed to gain enough steam, or as a trial run for the fall. Is the Trump Administration prepared?

Here’s one thing they could do: play their own “war game” scenario so as to game out possibilities and minimize surprises. They should also be talking to people inside and outside of government whom they absolutely trust to get a clearer sense of who on the inside won’t go along with a coup and who might.

They also need to set up or shore up—now—communication channels that don’t rely on the media or Big Tech. Once the ruling class gives word that the narrative is “Trump lost,” all the president’s social media accounts will be suspended. The T.V. channels, with the likely exception of Fox News, will refuse to cover anything he says. Count on it. He’s going to need a way to talk to the American people and he has to find the means, now.

For the rest of us, the most important thing we can do is raise awareness. If there is a conspiracy to remove President Trump from office even if he wins, they’re telling you about it precisely to get you ready for it, so that when it happens you won’t think it was a conspiracy; you’ll blame the president.

Don’t be fooled.

Constitution? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Constitution

Common Sense Corner

Pelosi on the abortion called Obamacare: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Translation: You peons are too stupid to know what’s best for you. For the purposes of attaining power and control over you we are going to tell you what you can and can’t have.

Joe Biden: “You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”

Translation: You peons are too stupid to know what’s good for you. If I admit I’ll pack the court if I win, you’ll not only not vote for me, you’ll run me out of the country on a rail.

A Prophetic Message to the USA, Part 10

There was a time that another group of people was in a similar situation. The Book of Isaiah in the Bible tells us that story. It is eerily similar to what The USA is going through right now. The people had turned their hearts against God. As a matter of fact, The Lord has laid this on my heart. I’m not claiming to be a prophet; however, I do believe that God speaks to us through His Word. Therefore, I took the liberty to go through Isaiah and update it to give us a more direct message.

I am not rewriting the Bible or anything like that. I just wanted us to get a more straightforward message. The Old Testament is in the Bible to teach us. Unlike some modern preachers and teachers, it is just as relevant today as it ever was. Feel free to compare my words with those in your Bible, and you will understand.

Here is part 10:

Isaiah 10:1-27,32-34 CSB

Woe to those enacting crooked statutes and writing oppressive laws to keep the poor from getting a fair trial and to deprive the needy among my people of justice, so that widows can be their spoil and they can plunder the fatherless. What will you do on the day of punishment when devastation comes from far away? Who will you run to for help? Where will you leave your wealth? There will be nothing to do except crouch among the prisoners or fall among the slain. In all this, his anger has not turned away, and his hand is still raised to strike.

Woe to China, the rod of my anger— the staff in their hands is my wrath. I will send him against a godless nation; I will command him to go against a people destined for my rage, to take spoils, to plunder, and to trample them down like clay in the streets. But this is not what he intends; this is not what he plans. It is his intent to destroy and to cut off many nations. As my hand seized the kingdoms of worthless images, kingdoms whose idols exceeded those of America and Samaria, and as I did to Samaria and its worthless images will I not also do to America and its idols?” But when the Lord finishes all his work against the USA, he will say, “I will punish the king of China for his arrogant acts and the proud look in his eyes.” For he said: I have done this by my own strength and wisdom, for I am clever. I abolished the borders of nations and plundered their treasures; like a mighty warrior, I subjugated the inhabitants. My hand has reached out, as if into a nest, to seize the wealth of the nations. Like one gathering abandoned eggs, I gathered the whole earth. No wing fluttered; no beak opened or chirped.

Does an ax exalt itself above the one who chops with it? Does a saw magnify itself above the one who saws with it? It would be like a rod waving the ones who lift it! It would be like a staff lifting the one who isn’t wood! Therefore the Lord GOD of Armies will inflict an emaciating disease on the well-fed of China, and he will kindle a burning fire under its glory.

America’s Light will become a fire, and its Holy One, a flame. In one day it will burn and consume China’s thorns and thistles. He will completely destroy the glory of its forests and orchards as a sickness consumes a person. The remaining trees of its forest will be so few in number that a child could count them. On that day the remnant of America and the survivors of the church will no longer depend on the one who struck them, but they will faithfully depend on the LORD, the Holy One.
