The Blast of the 7th Trumpet

……………………..Something Wicked This Way Comes…………………………

What alt-right guru Steve Bannon failed to create, German taxpayers have just stepped in to revive: a Nationalist International. Thanks to the German government, the far right is about to get its own well-heeled global think tank, complete with the sort of political academy that was so dear to Bannon’s plan for world domination.

Germany’s gift to the far right is the Desiderius Erasmus Foundation, the public policy arm of the country’s most prominent extremist party, the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). Erasmus, a Dutch humanist of the Renaissance best known for his ironic essay “In Praise of Folly,” would have been appalled at such a grotesque misappropriation of his name. The AfD, after all, has built its political base on a series of follies diametrically opposed to humanism, from its initial anti-immigration screeds to its current overtures to the anti-vaccination crowd.

Strangely enough, the AfD underperformed in the recent German elections, its parliamentary delegation losing 11 seats. Still, by capturing a little more than 10% of the vote, the party made it into parliament a second consecutive time. As a result, it qualifies for what all other major parties also receive: government support of its foundation. Unless legal efforts to block this largesse succeed, the Erasmus foundation will soon enjoy the equivalent of tens of millions of taxpayer dollars a year.

Consider that an extraordinary shot in the arm for the global far right, since the AfD will be funded to establish outposts of hate throughout the world. The foundation of the left-wing Die Linke party, the more appropriately labeled Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, already has offices in more than 20 countries. The Green Party’s foundation, named after Nobel Prize-winning German novelist Heinrich Böll, is in more than 30 countries. The far right hasn’t had this kind of opportunity for global expansion since fascism’s heyday in the 1930s.

The notion that the AfD could engage in anything remotely resembling “political education” should be laughable. But that’s exactly how its foundation plans to use the coming federal windfall: to recruit and train a new generation of far-right thinkers and activists. The Erasmus Stiftung aims to hire more than 900 people for its political academy and allied educational institutions. That’s even more ambitious than the academy of intellectual “gladiators” Bannon once dreamed of creating in a former monastery in the Italian countryside.

The us website says nothing about its global ambitions. Based on the AfD’s latest platform, however, expect the foundation to gather together Euroskeptics to plot the evisceration of the European Union; advance the AfD’s anti-immigrant platform with counterparts across Europe like Lega in Italy, Vlaams Belang in Belgium, Marine Le Pen’s National Rally in France, and several extremist groups in the Balkans; and pour money into establishing a “respectable” face for white nationalism by networking among identitarian groups in North America, the former Soviet Union and Australasia.

This thunder on the right certainly sounds ominous. And yet, after the defeat of Donald Trump in the 2020 elections, the precipitous decline in public support for President Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, and the ongoing efforts to counter the far right in Eastern Europe, the prospect of a Nationalist International might seem further away today than, say, four years ago.

One well-funded German foundation is not likely to change that forecast. Unfortunately, the Erasmus Foundation is anything but the only storm cloud on the political horizon.

In reality, the global disillusionment with mainstream politics that fueled the rise of Trump and his ilk has only grown more intense in these last months. New authoritarian populists have consolidated power in places like El Salvador — where President Nayib Bukele calls himself the “world’s coolest dictator” — and are poised for possible takeovers in countries like Chile and Italy. And who knows? Even Donald Trump might claw his way back into the White House in 2024.

In other words, just when you thought it might finally be safe to go back into the international community, the global situation may grow far worse. With the help of German taxpayers and aided by anger over vaccine mandates, a malfunctioning world economy and the enduring corruption of the powerful, the global right could rebound, securing greater power and influence in the years to come.

The building wave of reaction

At this point, by all the laws of politics, Donald Trump should be radioactive. He lost his re-election bid in November 2020 and his subsequent coup attempt failed. He’s had a lousy record when it comes to expanding Republican Party power, having helped that very party forfeit its House majority in 2018 and its Senate majority in 2020. He continues to face multiple lawsuits and investigations. He’s been barred from Facebook and Twitter.

For Trump, however, politics is a philosopher’s stone. He’s managed to transmute his leaden style — not to mention his countless private failings and professional bankruptcies — into political gold. The big surprise is that so many people continue to fall for such fool’s gold.

Because of his fervent, ever-loyal base of support, Trump continues to control the Republican Party and remains on track to run for president in 2024, with no credible Republican competition in sight. Even his overall popularity, which never made it above 50% when he was president, has recently improved marginally from a February low of 38.8% to an almost sunny 43.4%.

Led by this urban elitist from New York, the Republican Party has all but given up on cities and reliably blue regions of the country. Still, it now controls all the levers of power in 23 states, while the Democrats do so in only 15. With a mixture of gerrymandering, voter suppression, federal stonewalling and a master narrative about fraudulent elections, the Republicans aim to win back control of Congress in 2022 — something the odds increasingly favor — on their way to reclaiming the White House in 2024. At the moment, Donald Trump is the bookies’ choice to win the next presidential election, largely on the strength of not being Joe Biden (just as he won in 2016 by not being Hillary Clinton)

Since he can’t run for king of the world, Trump cares little about building international alliances, but the growing potential for him to return to power in 2024 has inspired right-leaning populists globally to believe that they, too, can lead their countries without the requisite skill, experience or psychological stability. Indeed, from President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines to President Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, being vulgar and vicious has already served a variety of them all too well.

Even more troubling is the new generation of Trump-style politicians coming to the fore globally. In Chile, for instance, the once-traditional conservative José Antonio Kast has remade himself as a far-right populist and in November won the first round of that country’s presidential elections. Across the Pacific in the Philippines, an all-too-literal political marriage of authoritarianism and populism is taking place as Bongbong Marcos, the son of the notorious former dictator Ferdinand Marcos, has selected Sara, the daughter of Rodrigo Duterte, to be his running mate in next year’s presidential election. Polling already puts them way ahead of the competition. In France, where Marine Le Pen has had a lock on the extremist vote for a decade, journalist Éric Zemmour is challenging her from the right with his predictions of a coming civil war and Muslim takeover.

Meanwhile, Trump’s minions in America are strengthening their international connections to create a global field of dreams. For many of them, Hungary remains the home plate of that very field of dreams. Right-wingers have been flocking to Budapest to learn how that country’s prime minister, Viktor Orbán, transformed the most liberal corner of Eastern Europe into the region’s most reactionary country. (Admittedly, he now faces stiff competition from the Law and Justice Party in Poland and Janez Janša’s Slovenian Democratic Party, among other right-wing forces in Eastern Europe.)

Typically enough, former vice president Mike Pence visited Budapest in September to praise Orbán’s “family-centric” anti-abortion version of social policy. This summer, Tucker Carlson broadcast a full week of his Fox News program from that same city. In the process, he devoted an entire show to Orbán’s virulently anti-immigrant initiatives, headlining it: “Why can’t we have this in America?” In fact, this country’s most reactionary political types are so in love with Hungary that they’re scheduling the annual Conservative Policy Action Conference for Budapest next spring, which will only cement such a transatlantic link.

Remember, in 2002, Orbán was kicked out of the prime minister’s office after one term in office, only to return to power in 2010. He’s been ruling ever since. The Trumpistas dream of pulling off just such a political comeback in America.

Elsewhere in Europe, the Spanish far-right party Vox has established its own Disenso Foundation to knit together a reactionary “Iberosphere” that includes the Mexican rightextremists in Colombia, the Bolsonaro family in Brazil and even Texas senator Ted Cruz.  But the Western Europe state most likely to follow Hungary’s lead is Italy. Right now, Prime Minister Mario Draghi, the former head of the European Central Bank, presides over a technocratic administration in Rome. Italian politics, however, is heading straight for neofascism. The party that’s only recently surged to the top of the polls, Brothers of Italy, has its roots in a group started in the wake of World War II by diehard supporters of fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. It promotes an anti-vax “Italy first” agenda and, if elections were held today, would likely create a ruling coalition with the alt-right Lega Party and right-wing populist Silvio Berlusconi’s Forward Italy

Meanwhile, several right-wing nationalists and populists are padding their CVs for a future role as the head of any new Nationalist International. Russian President Vladimir Putin may have the strongest claim to the title, given his longstanding support for right-wing and Euroskeptical parties, as well as the way he’s positioned Russia as the preeminent anti-liberal power around.

Don’t rule out Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, though. He’s mended fences with the far right in his own country, while trying to establish Turkey as a regional hegemon. Increasingly disillusioned with his NATO peers, he’s purchased weapons from Russia and even hinted at pushing Turkey into the nuclear club. And don’t forget Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi either. Working overtime to contain China, the Hindu nationalist has also been assiduously cultivating strong relations with the right wing in both the U.S. and Israel.

Creating an actual Axis of Illiberalism from such disparate countries would not be easy given geopolitical rivalries, ideological differences and personal ambitions. Still, the failures of current global institutions — and the liberal internationalism that animates them — provide a powerful glue with the potential to hold together genuinely disparate elements in an emerging right, adding up to a new version of global fascism.

When the future members of a Nationalist International argue that the status quo — a raging pandemic, runaway climate change, persistent economic inequality, staggering numbers of displaced people on the move — is broken and they have just the plan to fix it, plenty of non-extremists are likely to find the message all too compelling. Short on hope and desperate for change, the disaffected and disenfranchised have proven willing to offer the noisy nationalists and reactionary populists a shot at power (which, given their unscrupulous tactics, may be all they need).

Saving the world (from liberals)

One of the most persistent symbols of international politics has certainly been the wall. Think of the Great Wall of China, designed to protect successive dynasties from the predations of nomadic outsiders. Many metropolitan areas around the world have retained some portion of the historic walls that once established them as city-states. The Berlin Wall was the most visible symbol of the Cold War, while Trump’s border wall was the only infrastructure program of his presidency (even if it was never truly built).

The far right is now — thank you, Donald Trump! — obsessed with walls, drawing on not only history but a deep reservoir of fear of the outsider. Like “austerity” for neoliberals, “walls” have proven the far right’s one-size-fits-all answer to almost every question. Immigrants? Wall them out. Climate change? Build walls now to prevent future waves of desperate global-warming refugees. Economic decline? Hey, install those tariff walls. Angry neighbors? Walls of weaponry and anti-missile defenses are the obvious answer

The far right considers not rising sea levels but globalization — trade flows, the movement of people, expanding international governance — as the tide that needs containing. Far right populists are busy constructing dikes of all sorts to keep out such unwanted global flows and preserve national control in an increasingly chaotic world.

Moving down the great chain of governance, it’s no surprise that the far right also wants to culturally wall off communities to uphold what it calls “family values” against contrary civic values, different religious practices and alternate conceptions of sexuality and gender. It even wants to wall off individuals to “protect” them against intrusive government practices like vaccine mandates. To secure such walls, literal or metaphoric, what’s needed above all are a bloated military at the national level, paramilitaries at the community level and a semi-automatic in the hands of every red-blooded right-wing individual.

Such walls are a hedge against uncertainty, though ironically the far right’s truest contribution to modern political ideology is not certainty, but a radical skepticism. Sure, that ancient right-wing American crew, the John Birch Society, did traffic in conspiracy theories involving Communists and fluoridated water. But that was nothing compared to the way the modern political right has weaponized conspiracy theories to acquire permanent power. With claims of stolen elections, Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu and others have even cast doubt on the very capacity of democracy to represent voters, emphasizing that only populist extremists can represent the “authentic” wishes of the electorate.

On the other hand, elections that far-right candidates win, like the recent gubernatorial race in Virginia, are automatically defined as free and fair. Radical skepticism about the electoral system, after all, is only a convenient ladder that, once in power, the far right is all too ready to kick away.

The final conspiracy theory to fall will undoubtedly be the nefariousness of the “globalists” who have teamed up to contaminate the “precious bodily fluids” of pure Americans (or Brazilians or Hungarians). As long as liberal internationalists run global institutions like the World Bank and the World Health Organization, “globalists” will be useful bogeys for the nationalists to rally their followers. However, if the Trumps of this world capture enough countries and successfully infiltrate global institutions, then there will be no more talk of evil globalists.

In that worst-case scenario, even a Nationalist International will no longer be necessary as we discover in Hemingway fashion that, for Trump and his kind, the sun also rises. For all practical purposes, right-wing populists will have taken over the world. Given their blithe disregard for pandemics and climate change, such a victory would, of course, be pyrrhic.

A myth, a history lesson and a moral

The Death of American Conservatism

Barbara Comstock is a “respectable” and “traditional” Republican who served as a member of the House of Representatives from 2015 to 2019. In a recent column at The New York Times, she tries to grapple with the realities of Trumpism and American neofascism’s full control over today’s Republican Party. Her solution? 

To try to rally the “good” Republicans to resist Donald Trump’s influence and power by having a proper investigation into the events of Jan. 6.

InMy Fellow Republicans, Stop Fearing This Dangerous and Diminished Man,” Comstock writes the following about Donald Trump:

Republicans, instead of opposing a commission to investigate the events of Jan. 6, need to be at the forefront of seeking answers on the insurrection and diminishing the power of QAnon and the other conspiracy theories that Mr. Trump has fueled. While he is still popular within the party, Mr. Trump is a diminished political figure: 66 percent of Americans now hope he won’t run again in 2024, including 30 percent of Republicans.

He is not the future, and Republicans need to stop fearing him. He will continue to damage the party if we don’t face the Jan. 6 facts head-on. Nothing less than a full investigation is essential….

Many Republicans rationalize ignoring his rhetoric: His speech on Saturday wasn’t even aired live on Fox or CNN, and he may end up being indicted in New York and occupied with legal and financial problems. So, this thinking goes, what’s the harm in humoring the guy a little longer?

The harm is that the lies have metastasized and could threaten public safety again. The U.S. Capitol Police report that threats against members of Congress have increased 107 percent this year. Representative Adam Kinzinger, a Republican, has noted, “There’s no reason to believe that anybody organically is going to come to the truth.” Representative Liz Cheney, another Republican, said, “It’s an ongoing threat, so silence is not an option.”

Comstock continues that her fellow Republicans “would be better advised to fight like Senator Margaret Chase Smith.

During the Joseph McCarthy era in 1950, she advised fellow Republicans that the Democrats had already provided Republicans with sufficient campaign issues, and they need not resort to McCarthy’s demagogy.” She concludes: 

The same is true today. Republicans need to have more faith in their policies and stop being afraid of a dangerous and diminished man who has divided the country and now divides our party. Reconsider the commission, let the investigation go ahead, and run and win in 2022 on the truth.

“Her Republican Party (or at least the one she imagined) no longer exists.” 

The End of the GOP is Seen in the Man of Lawlessness

as the Messiah of the Conservative Movement

…….The Beast of Putin and his Shadow Image: Donald Trump…………………………………………

Today’s Republican Party is an anti-democracy,

theocratic, neofascist, white supremacist, anti-reason,

 terrorist organization.

“Comstock’s pleas for sanity are the equivalent of putting a rescue note inside of a bottle and then throwing it into the ocean over the Mariana Trench.

No help will be arriving.”

The story goes like this: in 1962, the leading conservative intellectual William F. Buckley Jr. used his magazine National Review to condemn the far-right John Birch Society.

The denunciation isolated the Birchers and their wild conspiracy theories within America’s conservative movement and led to their downfall. 

The story is a myth, reliant on half-truths and omissions to make it convincing. Yet in articles and books, Buckley repeated it again and again.

As the Republican Party grapples with QAnon believers and Trump loyalists, the myth that Buckley saved conservatism from extremists has been repeatedly cited as fact to explain how the party of Lincoln can save itself.

“The truth is far more interesting. It shows that extremism in America’s conservative movement has ebbed and flowed since the 1950s, yet never disappeared.”

Buckley claimed to have vanquished the Birchers, acting as the gatekeeper of American conservatism. Yet when Barry Goldwater became the first conservative presidential nominee of a major political party in 1964, it was the Birchers, not Buckley, who played the key role.

The Birchers had a profound impact on American conservatism, a fact Buckley wished to expunge. He wanted to make conservatism respectable.

To acknowledge the influence of the Birchers would be an admission of failure. 

It’s true enough that Buckley and the Birchers represented opposite wings of American conservatism. Buckley was the erudite face of conservative intellectualism, a self-describedintellectual revolutionary against the liberal order. In 1955, he founded National Review, which became the publication for highbrow conservative opinion and carried conservatism into America’s mainstream intellectual discourse. 

The John Birch Society, on the other hand, preached a unique brand of paranoid reactionary conservatism.

The brainchild of retired candy manufacturer Robert Welch Jr., the society was founded in 1958 to root out communist subversives in government and American society.

Although membership was secret, it is estimated that within a few years Welch had 20,000 to 100,000 followers.

(The actual John Birch, by the way, had nothing to do with it: He was a U.S. military intelligence officer killed by communist insurgents in China in 1945, and later embraced as a martyr by the American far right.)

Inherent in the society’s mission to challenge subversion was Welch’s conspiracy theory-laced worldview. In 1958, Welch mailed Buckley a 300-page summary of his theories entitled “The Politician.”

The manuscript contained the lurid claim that the sitting president, Dwight Eisenhower, was a communist and that past presidents, the CIA and civil rights activists were all secretly controlled by a global communist conspiracy.”

Insane as the document was, Buckley did not denounce Welch,

nor was he openly hostile to the John Birch Society.

He instead tried to maintain cordial relations, even forewarning Welch when National Review published an essay criticizing the Bircher magazine American Opinion. “A little friendly controversy among ourselves now and then is not too bad an idea,” wrote Buckley. Welch agreed.

The society’s growing prominence alarmed Buckley, however. Such an avowedly conspiratorial group could very well hamstring American conservatism just at the moment he perceived it gaining momentum. With the Birchers in the public eye, Buckley believed he needed to make a statement. Yet he feared tearing American conservatism apart. Therefore, he directed all condemnation at Welch so as not to offend the society as a whole. 

Buckley wrote two editorials, in April 1961 and February 1962, criticizing Welch. The first gently critiqued Welch’s practice of citing communist subversion when there was none and concluded by sayingI hope the Society thrives despite its bungling leader.

The February 1962 editorial, entitled “The Question of Robert Welch,” was more biting. Buckley wrote that Welch’s conspiracy theories made him a man “far removed from common sense.” In an effort to not offend the Birchers as a whole, however, Buckley inaccurately portrayed Welch as an aberration from the society he led.

“Buckley even tried to maintain his friendship with Welch. Shortly after the 1962 editorial, he wrote Welch, “I am very anxious to keep current on your thinking and the society’s activities, and would be grateful if you would look into this. If our subscription has expired, I should be only too happy to look to renew it.” 

This was the totality of Buckley’s supposed purge.

In later years, Buckley recast these two editorials as lethal salvos that drove the John Birch Society from the conservative movement. It was a narrative suited to Buckley’s view of himself as the patrician leader of conservatism. Yet it was a fallacious portrait. In the 1960s, American conservatism was a hodgepodge of groups held together by shared principles. National Review was one part of a large movement. Buckley was in no position to isolate those he disliked. There was no mass exodus from the John Birch Society. Buckley’s editorials were a disassociation, not a purge.

“Aside from self-aggrandizement, there was another reason for Buckley’s desire to rewrite history. In 1964, Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona captured the Republican presidential nomination. With conservatism now on the presidential stage, it was the Birchers, not Buckley, who became the dominant force in the movement.”

Despite Buckley’s friendship with Goldwater, he was sidelined early in Goldwater’s campaign. In a supreme irony, this effort was framed as necessary to distancing Goldwater from people who could be considered extreme. Two of Goldwater’s aides invited Buckley to dinner and then told the New York Times about the evening, disavowing Buckley in the process. Buckley thus spent the remainder of the campaign on the periphery.

The Birch Society, on the other hand, was heavily involved in Goldwater’s campaign. Since Bircher membership was secret and Goldwater had previously disavowed Welch, the Goldwater campaign had plausible deniability about Bircher support. This provided a passionate volunteer base for a contentious Republican primary. At the Republican convention, party moderates denounced Goldwater’s extremist supporters, namely the Birchers. Far from joining in the condemnation, Goldwater validated Bircher support. In his nomination acceptance speech, Goldwater famously declaredthat extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.”

His supporters practically blew the roof off the convention hall with their ecstatic cheering.

In the general election campaign, Birchers spread their beliefs on an unprecedented scale by distributing a slew of paperback books — costing a dollar or less, with a form on the last page for bulk orders — which argued for Goldwater while parroting their conspiratorial worldview.

Their three top selling books (Phyllis Schlafly’s “A Choice Not An Echo,” John Stormer’sNone Dare Call It Treason” and J. Evetts Haley’sA Texan Looks at Lyndon“) preached the Bircher message of unwavering reactionary conservatism, repeating Welch’s conspiracy theories while claiming that Democrats were communist sympathizers and Goldwater’s opponents were un-American. By October 1964, their combined sales reached 18 million copies.

This, calculated the historian Rick Perlstein, meant the books had sold enough copies to be in the homes of one in 10 Americans. National Review’s circulation, by comparison, was infinitesimal.

“The Birchers had carried their rhetoric into the mainstream. Goldwater did not disavow the Birchers or their books. His resounding defeat in 1964 — by most measures the greatest electoral landslide in American history — was largely attributable to the widely held belief that he and his supporters were extremists.” 

“Buckley and Goldwater condemned

the Birchers as a whole after Goldwater’s defeat.”

Yet the Birchers had already made their mark on the movement. Shortly thereafter, Buckley began to claim that he had purged the Birchers in the early 1960s. When, in 1966, the chairman of the Anti-Defamation League claimed that the Birch Society had played a key role in Goldwater’s 1964 campaign, Buckley bristled. He would not admit there were extremists in American conservatism. 

The clash between Buckley’s pretensions and reality was laid bare in his 1968 debate with the segregationist governor George Wallace, who was running as a third-party presidential candidate. Buckley tried to act as gatekeeper, saying Wallace was not supported by any prominent conservatives.

Wallace was dismissive, saying,Let’em be against me. What difference does it make?” Buckley failed again to curtail conservative extremists. Wallace, heavily supported by the Birchers, received nearly 10 million votes and carried five states in the Deep South. (No third-party candidate since then has even won one.) 

“Reactionary extremists are a part of the conservative movement. Although membership in the Birch Society began to wane in the 1970s, that had nothing to do with Buckley.

On the contrary, the Birchers’ rhetoric and tactics were now central to the Republican Party. Other conservatives — Pat Buchanan, Lee Atwater and Rush Limbaugh, among many others — carried on and perfected the Bircher tradition of reactionary conspiracy theories.”

Until Donald Trump, Republican leaders from George H.W. Bush to Mitch McConnell believed they could control the reactionaries. They failed in 2016 and they continue to fail today. Extremists have outlasted and undone all efforts to break their grip in the Republican Party. 

“Buckley never purged the extremist far right from American conservatism, largely because he could not possibly have done so. Reactionary paranoia is an organic component of the American right.

Such facts, however, run contrary to the way many “mainstream” conservatives view themselves. It behooves them to present the movement as capable of expelling its extremists.”

It is comforting to present Buckley as a sort of Edmund Burke reborn, the intellectual gatekeeper of conservative decency standing against the barbarous mob. Yet it is a fantasy. Until conservatives accept this, they will continue to underestimate the extremists. And as we see clearly today, it is the extremists who control the party, not the refined intellectuals who convince themselves otherwise.

The End of American Conservatism

One of the loudest voices urging Donald Trump’s supporters to push for overturning the presidential election results was Steve Bannon.

“We’re on the point of attack,” Bannon, a former Trump adviser and far-right nationalist, pledged on his popular podcast on Jan. 5. “All hell will break loose tomorrow.”

The next morning, as thousands massed on the National Mall for a rally that turned into an attack on the Capitol, Bannon fired up his listeners: “It’s them against us. Who can impose their will on the other side?”

When the insurrection failed, Bannon continued his campaign for his former boss by other means. On his “War Room” podcast, which has tens of millions of downloads, Bannon said President Trump lost because the Republican Party sold him out. “This is your call to action,” Bannon said in February, a few weeks after Trump had pardoned him of federal fraud charges.

The solution, Bannon announced, was to seize control of the GOP from the bottom up. Listeners should flood into the lowest rung of the party structure: the precincts. “It’s going to be a fight, but this is a fight that must be won, we don’t have an option,” Bannon said on his show in May. “We’re going to take this back village by village … precinct by precinct.”

Precinct officers are the worker bees of political parties, typically responsible for routine tasks like making phone calls or knocking on doors. But collectively, they can influence how elections are run. In some states, they have a say in choosing poll workers, and in others they help pick members of boards that oversee elections.After Bannon’s endorsement, the “precinct strategy” rocketed across far-right media. Viral posts promoting the plan racked up millions of views on pro-Trump websites, talk radio, fringe social networks and message boards, and programs aligned with the QAnon conspiracy theory.Suddenly, people who had never before showed interest in party politics started calling the local GOP headquarters or crowding into county conventions, eager to enlist as precinct officers. They showed up in states Trump won and in states he lost, in deep-red rural areas, in swing-voting suburbs and in populous cities.

In Wisconsin, for instance, new GOP recruits are becoming poll workers. County clerks who run elections in the state are required to hire parties’ nominees. The parties once passed on suggesting names, but now hardline Republican county chairs are moving to use those powers.

01:54 / 02:48

“We’re signing up election inspectors like crazy right now,” said Outagamie County party chair Matt Albert, using the state’s formal term for poll workers. Albert, who held a “Stop the Steal” rally during Wisconsin’s November recount, said Bannon’s podcast had played a role in the burst of enthusiasm.

ProPublica contacted GOP leaders in 65 key counties, and 41 reported an unusual increase in signups since Bannon’s campaign began. At least 8,500 new Republican precinct officers (or equivalent lowest-level officials) joined those county parties. We also looked at equivalent Democratic posts and found no similar surge.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, people are coming out of the woodwork,” said J.C. Martin, the GOP chairman in Polk County, Florida, who has added 50 new committee members since January. Martin had wanted congressional Republicans to overturn the election on Jan. 6, and he welcomed this wave of like-minded newcomers. “The most recent time we saw this type of thing was the tea party, and this is way beyond it.”

Bannon, through a spokesperson, declined to comment.

While party officials largely credited Bannon’s podcast with driving the surge of new precinct officers, it’s impossible to know the motivations of each new recruit. Precinct officers are not centrally tracked anywhere, and it was not possible to examine all 3,000 counties nationwide. ProPublica focused on politically competitive places that were discussed as targets in far-right media.

The tea party backlash to former President Barack Obama’s election foreshadowed Republican gains in the 2010 midterm. Presidential losses often energize party activists, and it would not be the first time that a candidate’s faction tried to consolidate control over the party apparatus with the aim of winning the next election.

What’s different this time is an uncompromising focus on elections themselves. The new movement is built entirely around Trump’s insistence that the electoral system failed in 2020 and that Republicans can’t let it happen again. The result is a nationwide groundswell of party activists whose central goal is not merely to win elections but to reshape their machinery.

“They feel President Trump was rightfully elected president and it was taken from him,” said Michael Barnett, the GOP chairman in Palm Beach County, Florida, who has enthusiastically added 90 executive committee members this year. “They feel their involvement in upcoming elections will prevent something like that from happening again.”

It has only been a few months — too soon to say whether the wave of newcomers will ultimately succeed in reshaping the GOP or how they will affect Republican prospects in upcoming elections. But what’s already clear is that these up-and-coming party officers have notched early wins.

In Michigan, one of the main organizers recruiting new precinct officers pushed for the ouster of the state party’s executive director, who contradicted Trump’s claim that the election was stolen and who later resigned. In Las Vegas, a handful of Proud Boys, part of the extremist group whose members have been charged in attacking the Capitol, supported a bid to topple moderates controlling the county party — a dispute that’s now in court.

In Phoenix, new precinct officers petitioned to unseat county officials who refused to cooperate with the state Senate Republicans’ “forensic audit” of 2020 ballots. Similar audits are now being pursued by new precinct officers in Michigan and the Carolinas. Outside Atlanta, new local party leaders helped elect a state lawmaker who championed Georgia’s sweeping new voting restrictions.

And precinct organizers are hoping to advance candidates such as Matthew DePerno, a Michigan attorney general hopeful who Republican state senators said in a report had spread “misleading and irresponsible” misinformation about the election, and Mark Finchem, a member of the Oath Keepers militia who marched to the Capitol on Jan. 6 and is now running to be Arizona’s top elections official. DePerno did not respond to requests for comment, and Finchem asked for questions to be sent by email and then did not respond. Finchem has said he did not enter the Capitol or have anything to do with the violence.

“He has also said the Oath Keepers are not anti-government.”

When Bannon interviewed Finchem on an April podcast, he wrapped up a segment about Arizona Republicans’ efforts to reexamine the 2020 results by asking Finchem how listeners could help. Finchem answered by promoting the precinct strategy. “The only way you’re going to see to it this doesn’t happen again is if you get involved,” Finchem said. “Become a precinct committeeman.”

Some of the new precinct officers were in the crowd that marched to the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to interviews and social media posts; one Texas precinct chair was arrested for assaulting police in Washington. He pleaded not guilty. Many of the new activists have said publicly that they support QAnon, the online conspiracy theory that believes Trump was working to root out a global child sex trafficking ring. Organizers of the movement have encouraged supporters to bring weapons to demonstrations. In Las Vegas and Savannah, Georgia, newcomers were so disruptive that they shut down leadership elections.

“They’re not going to be welcomed with open arms,” Bannon said, addressing the altercations on an April podcast. “But hey, was it nasty at Lexington?” he said, citing the opening battle of the American Revolution. “Was it nasty at Concord? Was it nasty at Bunker Hill?”

The Resurrected Hitler

THE COMING END OF THE GOP

Bannon plucked the precinct strategy out of obscurity. For more than a decade, a little-known Arizona tea party activist named Daniel J. Schultz has been preaching the plan. Schultz failed to gain traction, despite winning a $5,000 prize from conservative direct-mail pioneer Richard Viguerie in 2013 and making a 2015 pitch on Bannon’s far-right website, Breitbart. Schultz did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

In December, Schultz appeared on Bannon’s podcast to argue that Republican-controlled state legislatures should nullify the election results and throw their state’s Electoral College votes to Trump. If lawmakers failed to do that, Bannon asked, would it be the end of the Republican Party? Not if Trump supporters took over the party by seizing precinct posts, Schultz answered, beginning to explain his plan. Bannon cut him off, offering to return to the idea another time.

That time came in February. Schultz returned to Bannon’s podcast, immediately preceding Mike Lindell, the MyPillow CEO who spouts baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

“We can take over the party if we invade it,” Schultz said. “I can’t guarantee you that we’ll save the republic, but I can guarantee you this: We’ll lose it if we conservatives don’t take over the Republican Party.”

Bannon endorsed Schultz’s plan, telling “all the unwashed masses in the MAGA movement, the deplorables” to take up this cause. Bannon said he had more than 400,000 listeners, a count that could not be independently verified.

Bannon brought Schultz back on the show at least eight more times, alongside guests such as embattled Florida congressman Matt Gaetz, a leading defender of people jailed on Capitol riot charges.

The exposure launched Schultz into a full-blown far-right media tour. In February, Schultz spoke on a podcast with Tracy “Beanz” Diaz, a leading popularizer of QAnon. In an episode titled “THIS Is How We Win,” Diaz said of Schultz, “I was waiting, I was wishing and hoping for the universe to deliver someone like him.”

Schultz himself calls QAnon “a joke.” Nevertheless, he promoted his precinct strategy on at least three more QAnon programs in recent months, according to Media Matters, a Democratic-aligned group tracking right-wing content. “I want to see many of you going and doing this,” host Zak Paine said on one of the shows in May.

Schultz’s strategy also got a boost from another prominent QAnon promoter: former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who urged Trump to impose martial law and “rerun” the election. On a May online talk show, Flynn told listeners to fill “thousands of positions that are vacant at the local level.”

Precinct recruitment is now “the forefront of our mission” for Turning Point Action, according to the right-wing organization’s website. The group’s parent organization bussed Trump supporters to Washington for Jan. 6, including at least one person who was later charged with assaulting police. He pleaded not guilty. In July, Turning Point brought Trump to speak in Phoenix, where he called the 2020 election “the greatest crime in history.” Outside, red-capped volunteers signed people up to become precinct chairs.

Organizers from around the country started huddling with Schultz for weekly Zoom meetings. The meetings’ host, far-right blogger Jim Condit Jr. of Cincinnati, kicked off a July call by describing the precinct strategy as the last alternative to violence. “It’s the only idea,” Condit said, “unless you want to pick up guns like the Founding Fathers did in 1776 and start to try to take back our country by the Second Amendment, which none of us want to do.”

By the next week, though, Schultz suggested the new precinct officials might not stay peaceful. Schultz belonged to a mailing list for a group of military, law enforcement and intelligence veterans called the “1st Amendment Praetorian” that organizes security for Flynn and other pro-Trump figures. Back in the 1990s, Schultz wrote an article defending armed anti-government militias like those involved in that decade’s deadly clashes with federal agents in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and Waco, Texas.

“Make sure everybody’s got a baseball bat,” Schultz said on the July strategy conference call, which was posted on YouTube. “I’m serious about this. Make sure you’ve got people who are armed.”

The sudden demand for low-profile precinct positions baffled some party leaders. In Fort Worth, county chair Rick Barnes said numerous callers asked about becoming a “precinct committeeman,” quoting the term used on Bannon’s podcast. That suggested that out-of-state encouragement played a role in prompting the calls, since Texas’s term for the position is “precinct chair.” Tarrant County has added 61 precinct chairs this year, about a 24% increase since February. “Those podcasts actually paid off,” Barnes said.

For weeks, about five people a day called to become precinct chairs in Outagamie County, Wisconsin, southwest of Green Bay. Albert, the county party chair, said he would explain that Wisconsin has no precinct chairs, but newcomers could join the county party — and then become poll workers. “We’re trying to make sure that our voice is now being reinserted into the process,” Albert said.

Similarly, the GOP in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, is fielding a surge of volunteers for precinct committee members, but also for election judges or inspectors, which are party-affiliated elected positions in that state. “Who knows what happened on Election Day for real,” county chair Lou Capozzi said in an interview. The county GOP sent two busloads of people to Washington for Jan. 6 and Capozzi said they stayed peaceful. “People want to make sure elections remain honest.”

Elsewhere, activists inspired by the precinct strategy have targeted local election boards. In DeKalb County, east of Atlanta, the GOP censured a long-serving Republican board member who rejected claims of widespread fraud in 2020. To replace him, new party chair Marci McCarthy tapped a far-right activist known for false, offensive statements. The party nominees to the election board have to be approved by a judge, and the judge in this case rejected McCarthy’s pick, citing an “extraordinary” public outcry. McCarthy defended her choice but ultimately settled for someone less controversial.

In Raleigh, North Carolina, more than 1,000 people attended the county GOP convention in March, up from the typical 300 to 400. The chair they elected, Alan Swain, swiftly formed an “election integrity committee” that’s lobbying lawmakers to restrict voting and audit the 2020 results. “We’re all about voter and election integrity,” Swain said in an interview.

In the rural western part of the state, too, a wave of people who heard Bannon’s podcast or were furious about perceived election fraud swept into county parties, according to the new district chair, Michele Woodhouse. The district’s member of Congress, Rep. Madison Cawthorn, addressed a crowd at one county headquarters on Aug. 29, at an event that included a raffle for a shotgun.

“If our election systems continue to be rigged and continue to be stolen, it’s going to lead to one place, and it’s bloodshed,” Cawthorn said, in remarks livestreamed on Facebook, shortly after holding the prize shotgun, which he autographed. “That’s right,” the audience cheered. Cawthorn went on, “As much as I’m willing to defend our liberty at all costs, there’s nothing that I would dread doing more than having to pick up arms against a fellow American, and the way we can have recourse against that is if we all passionately demand that we have election security in all 50 states.

After Cawthorn referred to people arrested on Jan. 6 charges as “political hostages,” someone asked, “When are you going to call us to Washington again?” The crowd laughed and clapped as Cawthorn answered, “We are actively working on that one.”

“Schultz has offered his own state of Arizona as a proof of concept for how precinct officers can reshape the party. The result, Schultz has said, is actions like the state Senate Republicans’ “forensic audit” of Maricopa County’s 2020 ballots. The “audit,” conducted by a private firm with no experience in elections and whose CEO has spread conspiracy theories, has included efforts to identify fraudulent ballots from Asia by searching for traces of bamboo. Schultz has urged activists demanding similar audits in other states to start by becoming precinct officers.”

“Because we’ve got the audit, there’s very heightened and intense public interest in the last campaign, and of course making sure election laws are tightened,” said Sandra Dowling, a district chair in northwest Maricopa and northern Yuma County whose precinct roster grew by 63% in less than six months. Though Dowling says some other district chairs screen their applicants, she doesn’t. “I don’t care,” she said.

One chair who does screen applicants is Kathy Petsas, a lifelong Republican whose district spans Phoenix and Paradise Valley. She also saw applications explode earlier this year. Many told her that Schultz had recruited them, and some said they believed in QAnon. “Being motivated by conspiracy theories is no way to go through life, and no way for us to build a high-functioning party,” Petsas said. “That attitude can’t prevail.”

As waves of new precinct officers flooded into the county party, Petsas was dismayed to see some petitioning to recall their own Republican county supervisors for refusing to cooperate with the Senate GOP’s audit.

“It is not helpful to our democracy when you have people who stand up and do the right thing and are honest communicators about what’s going on, and they get lambasted by our own party,” Petsas said. “That’s a problem.”

This spring, a team of disaffected Republican operatives put Schultz’s precinct strategy into action in South Carolina, a state that plays an outsize role in choosing presidents because of its early primaries. The operatives’ goal was to secure enough delegates to the party’s state convention to elect a new chair: far-right celebrity lawyer Lin Wood.

Wood was involved with some of the lawsuits to overturn the presidential election that courts repeatedly ruled meritless, or even sanctionable. After the election, Wood said on Bannon’s podcast, “I think the audience has to do what the people that were our Founding Fathers did in 1776.” On Twitter, Wood called for executing Vice President Mike Pence by firing squad. Wood later said it was “rhetorical hyperbole,” but that and other incendiary language got him banned from mainstream social media. He switched to Telegram, an encrypted messaging app favored by deplatformed right-wing influencers, amassing roughly 830,000 followers while repeatedly promoting the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Asked for comment about his political efforts, Wood responded, “Most of your ‘facts’ are either false or misrepresent the truth.” He declined to cite specifics.

Typically, precinct meetings were “a yawner,” according to Mike Connett, a longtime party member in Horry County, best known for its popular beach towns. But in April, Connett and other establishment Republicans were caught off guard when 369 people, many of them newcomers, showed up for the county convention in North Myrtle Beach. Connett lost a race for a leadership role to Diaz, the prominent QAnon supporter, and Wood’s faction captured the county’s other executive positions plus 35 of 48 delegate slots, enabling them to cast most of the county’s votes for Wood at the state convention. “It seemed like a pretty clean takeover,” Connett told ProPublica.

In Greenville, the state’s most populous county, Wood campaign organizers Jeff Davis and Pressley Stutts mobilized a surge of supporters at the county convention — about 1,400 delegates, up from roughly 550 in 2019 — and swept almost all of the 79 delegate positions. That gave Wood’s faction the vast majority of the votes in two of South Carolina’s biggest delegations.

Across the state, the precinct strategy was contributing to an unprecedented surge in local party participation, according to data provided by a state GOP spokeswoman. In 2019, 4,296 people participated. This year, 8,524 did.

“It’s a prairie fire down there in Greenville, South Carolina, brought on by the MAGA posse,” Bannon said on his podcast.

Establishment party leaders realized they had to take Wood’s challenge seriously. The incumbent chair, Drew McKissick, had Trump’s endorsement three times over — including twice after Wood entered the race. But Wood fought back by repeatedly implying that McKissick and other prominent state Republicans were corrupt and involved in various conspiracies that seemed related to QAnon. The race became heated enough that after one event, Wood and McKissick exchanged angry words face-to-face.

Wood’s rallies were raucous affairs packed with hundreds of people, energized by right-wing celebrities like Flynn and Lindell. In interviews, many attendees described the events as their first foray into politics, sometimes referencing Schultz and always citing Trump’s stolen election myth. Some said they’d resort to violence if they felt an election was stolen again.

Wood’s campaign wobbled in counties that the precinct strategy had not yet reached. At the state convention in May, Wood won about 30% of the delegates, commanding Horry, Greenville and some surrounding counties, but faltering elsewhere. A triumphant McKissick called Wood’s supporters “a fringe, rogue group” and vowed to turn them into a “leper colony” by building parallel Republican organizations in their territory.

But Wood and his partisans did not act defeated. The chairmanship election, they argued, was as rigged as the 2020 presidential race. Wood threw a lavish party at his roughly 2,000-acre low-country estate, secured by armed guards and surveillance cameras. From a stage fit for a rock concert on the lawn of one of his three mansions, Wood promised the fight would continue

Diaz and her allies in Horry County voted to censure McKissick. The county’s longtime Republicans tried, but failed, to oust Diaz and her cohort after one of the people involved in drafting Wood tackled a protester at a Flynn speech in Greenville. (This incident, the details of which are disputed, prompted Schultz to encourage precinct strategy activists to arm themselves.) Wood continued promoting the precinct strategy to his Telegram followers, and scores replied that they were signing up.

In late July, Stutts and Davis forced out Greenville County GOP’s few remaining establishment leaders, claiming that they had cheated in the first election. Then Stutts, Davis and an ally won a new election to fill those vacant seats. “They sound like Democrats, right?” Bannon asked Stutts in a podcast interview. Stutts replied, “They taught the Democrats how to cheat, Steve.”

Stutts’ group quickly pushed for an investigation of the 2020 presidential election, planning a rally featuring Davis and Wood at the end of August, and began campaigning against vaccine and school mask mandates. “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery,” Stutts had previously posted on Facebook, quoting Thomas Jefferson. Stutts continued posting messages skeptical of vaccine and mask mandates even after he entered the hospital with a severe case of COVID-19. He died on Aug. 19.

The hubbub got so loud inside the Cobb County, Georgia, Republican headquarters that it took several shouts and whistles to get everyone’s attention. It was a full house for Salleigh Grubbs’ first meeting as the county’s party chair. Grubbs ran on a vow to “clean house” in the election system, highlighting her December testimony to state lawmakers in which she raised unsubstantiated fraud allegations. Supporters praised Grubbs’ courage for following a truck she suspected of being used in a plot to shred evidence. She attended Trump’s Jan. 6 rally as a VIP. She won the chairmanship decisively at an April county convention packed with an estimated 50% first-time participants.

In May, Grubbs opened her first meeting by asking everyone munching on bacon and eggs to listen to her recite the Gettysburg Address. “Think of the battle for freedom that Americans have before them today,” Grubbs said. “Those people fought and died so that you could be the precinct chair.” After the reading, first-time precinct officers stood for applause and cheers.

Their work would start right away: putting up signs, making calls and knocking on doors for a special election for the state House. The district had long leaned Republican, but after the GOP’s devastating losses up and down the ballot in 2020, they didn’t know what to expect.

“There’s so many people out there that are scared, they feel like their vote doesn’t count,” Cooper Guyon, a 17-year-old right-wing podcaster from the Atlanta area who speaks to county parties around the state, told the Cobb Republicans in July. The activists, he said, need to “get out in these communities and tell them that we are fighting to make your vote count by passing the Senate bill, the election-reform bills that are saving our elections in Georgia.”

Of the field’s two Republicans, Devan Seabaugh took the strongest stance in favor of Georgia’s new law restricting ways to vote and giving the Republican-controlled Legislature more power over running elections. “The only people who may be inconvenienced by Senate Bill 202 are those intent on committing fraud,” he wrote in response to a local newspaper’s candidate questionnaire.

Seabaugh led the June special election and won a July runoff. Grubbs cheered the win as a turning point. “We are awake. We are preparing,” she wrote on Facebook. “The conservative citizens of Cobb County are ready to defend our ballots and our county.”

Newcomers did not meet such quick success everywhere. In Savannah, a faction crashed the Chatham County convention with their own microphone, inspired by Bannon’s podcast to try to depose the incumbent party leaders who they accused of betraying Trump. Party officers blocked the newcomers’ candidacies, saying they weren’t officially nominated. Shouting erupted, and the meeting adjourned without a vote. Then the party canceled its districtwide convention.

The state party ultimately sided with the incumbent leaders. District chair Carl Smith said the uprising is bound to fail because the insurgents are mistaken in believing that he and other local leaders didn’t fight hard enough for Trump.

“You can’t build a movement on a lie,” Smith said.

In Michigan, activists who identify with a larger movement working against Republicans willing to accept Trump’s loss have captured the party leadership in about a dozen counties. They’re directly challenging state party leaders, who are trying to harness the grassroots energy without indulging demands to keep fighting over the last election.

Some of the takeovers happened before the rise of the precinct strategy. But the activists are now organizing under the banner “Precinct First” and holding regular events, complete with notaries, to sign people up to run for precinct delegate positions.

“We are reclaiming our party,” Debra Ell, one of the organizers, told ProPublica. “We’re building an ‘America First’ army.”

Under normal rules, the wave of new precinct delegates could force the party to nominate far-right candidates for key state offices. That’s because in Michigan, party nominees for attorney general, secretary of state and lieutenant governor are chosen directly by party delegates rather than in public primaries. But the state party recently voted to hold a special convention earlier next year, which should effectively lock in candidates before the new, more radical delegates are seated.

Activist-led county parties including rural Hillsdale and Detroit-area Macomb are also censuring Republican state legislators for issuing a June report on the 2020 election that found no evidence of systemic fraud and no need for a reexamination of the results like the one in Arizona. (The censures have no enforceable impact beyond being a public rebuke of the politicians.) At the same time, county party leaders in Hillsdale and elsewhere are working on a ballot initiative to force an Arizona-style election review.

Establishment Republicans have their own idea for a ballot initiative — one that could tighten rules for voter ID and provisional ballots while sidestepping the Democratic governor’s veto. If the initiative collects hundreds of thousands of valid signatures, it would be put to a vote by the Republican-controlled state Legislature. Under a provision of the state constitution, the state Legislature can adopt the measure and it can’t be vetoed.

State party leaders recently reached out to the activists rallying around the rejection of the presidential election results, including Hillsdale Republican Party Secretary Jon Smith, for help. Smith, Ell and others agreed to join the effort, the two activists said.

“This empowers them,” Jason Roe, the state party executive director whose ouster the activists demanded because he said Trump was responsible for his own loss, told ProPublica. Roe resigned in July, citing unrelated reasons. “It’s important to get them focused on change that can actually impact” future elections, he said, “instead of keeping their feet mired in the conspiracy theories of 2020.”

Jesse Law, who ran the Trump campaign’s Election Day operations in Nevada, sued the Democratic electors, seeking to declare Trump the winner or annul the results. The judge threw out the case, saying Law’s evidence did not meet “any standard of proof,” and the Nevada Supreme Court agreed. When the Electoral College met in December, Law stood outside the state capitol to publicly cast mock votes for Trump.

This year, Law set his sights on taking over the Republican Party in the state’s largest county, Clark, which encompasses Las Vegas. He campaigned on the precinct strategy, promising 1,000 new recruits. His path to winning the county chairmanship — just like Stutts’ team in South Carolina, and Grubbs in Cobb County, Georgia — relied on turning out droves of newcomers to flood the county party and vote for him.

In Law’s case, many of those newcomers came through the Proud Boys, the all-male gang affiliated with more than two dozen people charged in the Capitol riot. The Las Vegas chapter boasted about signing up 500 new party members (not all of them belonging to the Proud Boys) to ensure their takeover of the county party. After briefly advancing their own slate of candidates to lead the Clark GOP, the Proud Boys threw their support to Law. They also helped lead a state party censure of Nevada’s Republican secretary of state, who rejected the Trump campaign’s baseless claims of fraudulent ballots.

Law, who did not respond to repeated requests for comment, has declined to distance himself from the Las Vegas Proud Boys, citing Trump’s “stand back and stand by” remark at the September 2020 presidential debate. “When the president was asked if he would disavow, he said no,” Law told an independent Nevada journalist in July. “If the president is OK with that, I’m going to take the presidential stance.”

“The outgoing county chair, David Sajdak, canceled the first planned vote for his successor. He said he was worried the Proud Boys would resort to violence if their newly recruited members, who Sajdak considered illegitimate, weren’t allowed to vote”.

Sajdak tried again to hold a leadership vote in July, with a meeting in a Las Vegas high school theater, secured by police. But the crowd inside descended into shouting, while more people tried to storm past the cops guarding the back entrance, leading to scuffles. “Let us in! Let us in!” some chanted. Riling them up was at least one Proud Boy, according to multiple videos of the meeting.

At the microphone, Sajdak was running out of patience. “I’m done covering for you awful people,” he bellowed. Unable to restore order, Sajdak ended the meeting without a vote and resigned a few hours later. He’d had enough.

“They want to create mayhem,” Sajdak said.

Soon after, Law’s faction held their own meeting at a hotel-casino and overwhelmingly voted for Law as county chairman. Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, a longtime ally of Law who helped lead Trump’s futile effort to overturn the Nevada results, recognized Law as the new county chair and promoted a fundraiser to celebrate. The existing county leaders sued, seeking a court order to block Law’s “fraudulent, rogue election.” The judge preliminarily sided with the moderates, but told them to hold off on their own election until a court hearing in September.

To Sajdak, agonizing over 2020 is pointless because “there’s no mechanism for overturning an election.” Asked if Law’s allies are determined to create one, Sajdak said: “It’s a scary thought, isn’t it.”

* Taken from the Book of Daniel, the legend of Nebuchadnezzar tells of a ruler who through hubris lost his mind and was reduced to animalistic madness and eating “grass as oxen”.

According to the biographer Alexander Gilchrist (1828–1861), in Blake’s print the viewer is faced with the “mad king crawling like a hunted beast into a den among the rocks; his tangled golden beard sweeping the ground, his nails like vultures’ talons, and his wild eyes full of sullen terror. The powerful frame is losing semblance of humanity, and is bestial in its rough growth of hair, reptile in the toad-like markings and spottings of the skin, which takes on unnatural hues of green, blue, and russet.”

I can see it as a scene from Star Wars. Joe McCarthy in his usual drunken slur telling Donald Trump “Donald, I am your father.”

Because he might not be his biological father but he is his ideological father. In 2017 the Trump Administration cancelled an Obama era initiative to mandate infection control for nursing homes and assisted living centers.

So far and the first of many, more 2200 have so far died in them. But to hear Donald Trump on his daily new version of “The Apprentice”, it’s all just a blip on the nation’s radar. And anyone that objects to his version of things is retaliated against. This is classic Joe McCarthy.

That it’s not about what you do, it’s all about anything that can be used to call into question anything his opponents, real or perceived have ever done.

Instead we see a masterful façade of perfusive thanks for his incredible leadership, nothing to see here wrong and control of the narrative and framing the conversation. Classic Joe McCarthy and now Donald Trump.

Truth is at best relative and much of the time at odds to the story to be told. But if it is told strongly enough and you cater to those seeking a reason to hate, then you still win. Again and again, in the tradition of Soviet show trials, McCarthy destroyed the careers and lives of hundreds, just for the slightest inkling of impropriety. Transgressions in their youth. It didn’t matter, only the show mattered.

“…Joe McCarthy rose and fell on the back of the media. It created him and it ate up the show he put on.

It was only when they, the media stopped watching and broadcasting the McCarthy show,

that he was finally stopped. A lesson not ignored by today’s’ Cons and the reason Fox News was so vital to their plans.

Donald Trump as President owes his position to the media….”

The commercial corporate media was used to create him, to nurture him and for all of their protests to the contrary, they were in on the deal. The right wingnut news was there too but without the corporate news machine was probably not enough.

The Cons understood from what happened to Joe McCarthy that if the media stopped showing the new Apprentice, as they had the McCarthy show, it would all fall apart.

The media, all of it is what nurtures and keeps Donald Trump in power. Without them, he would like Joe McCarthy, simply go away and die.

The Unlawful End of Democracy, why did Senator Lindsey Graham help crown Mr. Sun and Mrs. Moon at the Dirksen Center Federal Building in Washington DC? And betray the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, and End the Separation of Church and State???

 How did This happen??

For those who were there on March 23rd, 2004, at the Dirksen Senate Office Building,

saw the opening ceremony, with a rabbi blowing a ram’s horn.

“…….Most Jews would hold off on this until the High Holy Days, but it probably counts if the Moshiach shows up in a federal office building at taxpayer expense. Then we see the man of the hour, Moon, chilling at a table at the Dirksen in a tuxedo, soaking all this up. He claps. He’s having a ball.

Cut to the ritual. Eyes downcast, a man identified as Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) is bringing a crown, atop a velvety purple cushion, to a figure who stands waiting austerely with his wife. Now Moon is wearing robes that Louis XIV would have appreciated. All of this has quickly been spliced into a promo reel by Moon’s movement, which implies to its followers that the U.S. Congress itself has crowned the Washington Times owner…..”

 

The Breaking of the Bond of Integrity: the Corruption of the Senate

“……But Section 9 of the Constitution  forbids giving out titles of nobility,

setting a certain tone that might have made the Congressional hosts

shy about celebrating the coronation on their websites.

They included conservatives,

the traditional fans of Moon’s newspaper:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.),

Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA.),

Rep. Chris Cannon (R-Utah),

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.)

and Republican strategy god Charlie Black,

whose PR firm represents Ahmed Chalabi’s Iraqi National Congress……”

The charge for breaking a vital tenet of the Constitution is then “aiding and abetting”, the offence of giving material support to someone involved in the commission of a crime, which the Conservative right wing, who were heavily financed by the feigned generosity of Rev. Moon, are therefore directly responsible for, as giving access to a Federal Building for his Coronation, all happening on Federal Ground. Rev. Moon made sure his Coronation as Messiah would be in Washington DC, and done on US government and therefore “Sovereign” land: but of course. This is what officially ended the separation of Church and State in America, to which Senator Lindsey Graham and others, like Republican House Speaker Hastert, had full knowledge.

For those who think all the Democrats were virgins in this matter I sadly point out this:

“………But there were also liberal House Democrats like Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) and Davis. Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) later told the Memphis Flyer that he’d been erroneously listed on the program, but had never heard of the event, which was sponsored by the Washington Times Foundation.  (  At this time the current president of the Washington Times Foundation is Larry Moffitt of the Unification Church: who organized the event, and was therefore a witting co-conspirator.)

Rep. Curt Weldon’s office tenaciously denied that the Congressman was there, before being provided by The Gadflyer with a photo; then saying, “It is quite accurate that the Washington Times host, but we have nothing to do with the agenda, the organization, the scheduling, and our role would be limited explicitly to the attendance of the Congressman…..”

But if any can recall, the Moonies do not believe that secular law applies to them, which is a pernicious belief that was picked up and run with by the Tea Party and the entire GOP leadership. For them it’s just “Heavenly Deception” to lie for God; so it’s ok to lie about anything:  24/7. Rev. Moon said it was “OK”.

This was one of Rev. Moon’s core beliefs, that he was “above the Law”, and for which he ended up doing 18 months in Danbury Federal Penitentiary by those not convinced of his moral superiority.

For as the Commandment States:

“…..Thou shalt not bear false witness…” 

Rev. Moon obviously thought this particular Command of

the 10 Commandments of God

 didn’t apply to the divine race of the Koreans.

Sun Myung Moon Crowned ‘King Of America’ At U.S. Senate Building

Controversial Korean evangelist and self-declared messiah Sun Myung Moon received a “Crown of Peace” at a March 23 ceremony that took place at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., and was promoted by members of Congress.

Wearing flowing robes reminiscent of Middle Ages kingly attire, Moon and his wife, Hak Ja Han, had golden crowns placed on their heads during the ceremony, which was attended by a U.S. senator and several members of the House of Representatives.

It was clear that Moon followers viewed the coronation ceremony as more than just an award.

On Moon’s Family Federation for World Peace and Unification website a few days later, top Moon official Chung Hwan Kwak was quoted as saying,

So in effect, the crowning means America is saying to Father, ‘Please become my king.‘”

Observed Kwak,

“The ‘outside’ view of the Capitol Hill event was that Father received a crown,

an award for his years of dedication and leadership in reconciliation and peace-making.

The ‘inside’ view of the event was that America surrendered to True Parents in the king’s position.”

The event was sponsored by the Inter-religious and International Peace Council, a Moon front group that claims to build bridges between Christianity, Judaism and Islam. In reality, critics say the organization pursues Moon’s longstanding dream of merging religion and government under his authority.

Moon’s group was able to get access to the Senate building thanks to an influential friend: U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton (D-Minn.), who attended the event. Also attending were six members of the House of Representatives: Reps. Roscoe G. Bartlett (R-Md.), Christopher B. Cannon (R-Utah), Curt Weldon (R-Pa.), Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.), Harold E. Ford (D-Tenn.) and Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (D-Ga.).

The House members were listed as “Congressional Co-Chairs” of the event on invitations. “Invitational Committee” members included U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), former U.S. Sen. Larry Pressler (R-S.D.), U.S. Rep. Phillip M. Crane (R-Ill.), U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis (R-Va.) and U.S. Rep. Eddie B. Johnson (D-Texas).

During his remarks at the Senate ceremony, Moon claimed that dead world leaders have endorsed him from the “spirit world.”

 

“[M]any other leaders in the spirit world,

including even Communist leaders such as Marx and Lenin,

who committed all manner of barbarity and murders on earth,

and dictators such as Hitler and Stalin,

have found strength in my teachings,

mended their ways and been reborn as new persons,”

Moon told the crowd.

“Emperors, kings and presidents

who enjoyed opulence and power on earth,

and even journalists who had worldwide fame,

have now placed themselves at the forefront of the column

of the true love revolution….

They have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon

is none other than humanity’s Savior,

Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent.”

(Moon officials have asserted that within the past few years, Moon has been endorsed by every deceased U.S. president at a series of “spirit world conferences.”)

Days later at an April 7 gathering, Moon bragged about his enthronement. A summary of his remarks on a Moon website reported that he said, “The coronation of True Parents and King and Queen of the Peace Kingdom was no small event. This was not a symbol or a simple matter. This Coronation of March 23 was a most serious condition in history and was a central point for the Peace Kingdom.”

Moon also said,

“Father is giving direction to Jesus. Do you think Jesus is coming again from the clouds?… The fulfillment of the Coronation on Capitol Hill reversed the fortunes of the Jesus course on the cross. I’m very logical and reasonable as a person…. You don’t know how serious the coronation was in history. If that didn’t happen, then there was a possibility that an atomic bomb would have been dropped on the Gaza Strip.”

Moon also blasted the separation of church and state.

“Who emphasized the separation of church and state?” he asked. “It is not God’s viewpoint.”

Moon concluded his rant with an attack on gay people, a frequent theme in his sermons. He announced that to stop homosexuality, all Unification Church couples should sleep naked.

“Even mother and I are setting such a condition,” said Moon, who is 84. “You must think that your body is for your wife and your wife’s body is for the husband. When couples get old, they should still touch each other and be close like they are young. The wife should sleep holding her husband’s love organ. The husband should do the same…. There is no spare key to your spouse’s love organ. You like to hear this, don’t you, sisters?”

In an April 8 address, Moon observed, “If three families do this [sleep naked] in every village we can get rid of all homosexuality.”

In other recent controversial statements reported on Moon websites, the Korean evangelist insisted that “the Jews killed Jesus” and argued that race is environmentally determined.

“If you black leaders went to live in the North Pole,” he said, “you would become white after a few generations.”

 

The other politicians who were hoodwinked into coming said this, through the usual flacks;

 

“…….The spokeswoman for one senator, who asked that her boss not be named,

said politicians weren’t told the awards program was going to be a Moon event.

The senator went, she said, because the Ambassadors promised to hand out awards to people from his home state,

people who were genuinely accomplished. …..”

A Lesson in the Application of Ethics as Distinct from mere Rhetoric, an Object Lesson for the Day of Reckoning

Those who believe that God loves them because they are rich, powerful, and apparently reign over mankind as the kings of the earth, are quite correct in the fact that God loves them, but not because they are rich and have great wealth; God loves everybody: good and evil alike.

God even loves the Devil, but, not surprisingly: the Devil does not love God. Lucifer murdered his own self by enshrining himself as the creator of the Principle of Contradiction, and he was so impressed with himself for having done so he then decided he loved himself more than God, because he was more worthy of this self-love than God was. Rhetoric is what one says; and Ethics are what one does: so it is not surprising that those here in America have decided to makes falsehood their home.

Indeed, the rich and powerful have decided to seize political power with their unlimited use of their Wall Street millions, billions more in money stolen from the Middle Class and programs for the less fortunate as the duty of those to help those with less that was the inherent societal balance of the Social Contract between the Upper and Lower Classes, that operated as the de facto conscience of the Upper Class to protect the poor with a Social Safety Net so that the US did not turn into what it is today: a Paradise for the Rich: and a Purgatory for the Poor.

Everything Hitler did to seize power in Germany was Legal....just like the GOP and Tea Party: with unlimited Koch Money....

Everything Hitler did to seize power in Germany was Legal….just like the GOP and Tea Party: with unlimited Koch Money….

The Social Contract is now officially gone, as the legacy of Ronald Wilson Reagan; who began the Reign of Terror by throwing the mentally ill of America into the street by closing all the Government Mental Homes and Hospitals which were the lifeline in the Aid for the Totally Dependent who were unable to fend for themselves. In fact we are seeing what we have instead is the sad reality of trillions of dollars siphoned out of the economy by slashing the workforce to a veritable skeleton, and that money which the Richhad promised to use to bring Americans the real reward of true prosperity now kept in accounts stashed in offshore accounts, so the Corporations pay no taxes at all; and to then use this money to buy Senators and Representatives, Lobbyists and corrupt Judges: and use this wealth to subsequently destroy democracy in America.

In fact, what we are now witnessing is the 1% uniformly taking their obscene wealth to use the now legalized Graft of “Citizens United” to take over the Government, using the Supreme Court approved Right of Unlimited Corporate Graft, now made into the New Law of the Land :by a Lawless Supreme Court: a Supreme Tribunal and veritable Death Sentence of a now Standing State of National Injustice, seen especially in their added removal of the Voting Rights Act, so that now we have returned to the pre-Civil Rights Movement Days for which so many marched and died so they could vote.

The Fall of Democracy and the Rise of Wall Street

 

With no right nor way to legally vote the Supreme Court has officially plunged America into a lawless anarchy of Social Darwinism, a dystopian “dog eat dog” society, barely a step away from a GOP policy of interning of millions of Liberals, Gays and Minorities in the ready-to-go FEMA camps, by a willing police force now so corrupted in the Neo-Confederate South by Tea Party rhetoric, and so heavily armed by the military; as to make the ideal of “Protect and Serve” to appear as little more than a forgotten fairytale.

Being stopped by the police in the South for a black man is now the very threat of a quick split second death sentence. And they are not prosecuted, once again: “above the law” they insist we obey, even as they operate as virtual masters, now seemingly able to kill with impunity.

Cornel West found his arrest to be a mockery of Justice in Ferguson, not even three weeks ago.

The unwholesome truth is that the police are now the operative arm of the thinly veiled ( or not even that anymore ) white supremacist National Right-Wing Oppression, and those on Wall Street and in GOP Statehouses in the South and Mid-west who now operate “Above the Law” laughingly  flout any federal statutes; even as they now have their police department’s daily arrest more and more innocent victims  for the “prison-for-profit” system of incarceration of the poor and homeless now so popular in the South, letting it be their paradigm of black population control, now put in place as their new official Southern “growth industry”; not to mention the Civil Forfeiture Laws by which the police now steal homes and property without let or limit: legally.

The facts were known long ago, and we who forget these words by FDR will rue it...

The facts were known long ago, and we who forget these words by FDR will rue it…

Just like Hitler’s rise in recessionary, Jew-scapegoating; and economically collapsed Germany: all legal.

Does anyone need to see the idea of the Right Wing scapegoating of the poor as “moochers” and “animals” on Fox News as being once again little more than what was done so successfully by Hitler, as he demonized the Jews, and then the Gypsies and also Homosexuals along with the inferior “mentally ill”, so that they had to wear “the mark of the Beast” in public???

 Has anyone even publicly called out Putin, for his Hitleresque tactics in his takeover of the mass media, or does that Tsar Putin think he has gotten away with this, and has now so openly done so before the entire world???

He is even now establishing himself as a Totalitarian Dictator for life;  using his illegal monopoly of media to vilify, and the courts to imprison any who dare oppose him, and all done to make seem sub-human and suddenly verminous the hard-working and good people of the Ukraine; all this National Ukrainian “character assassination” being droned without ceasing on TV to the open ears of his political base; made  of an alcoholically and vodka-stuporifically drunken and barely half-conscious populace: his non-stop aggression against Europe continues on every front, and all done to patriotic music on his personally controlled and now completely State-owned TV in Russia, as he happily threatens the West with nuclear annihilation: with a smile.

He’s ex-KGB, a total psychopath.

 

"...Freedom Through Work...'', much like the "Right to Work" for nothing laws passed by right wing reactionaries in every red state; much like the motto high above the Gates of Dachau

“…Freedom Through Work…”, much like the “Right to Work” ( for nothing ) laws, now having been passed by right wing reactionaries in every red state; much like the motto high above the Gates of Dachau…..

A Shortening of the Days of Darkness??

Here is what we face with the official end of the “Social Contract in America”:

“No more, no more!!, that this dark day the GOP and their NRA arm of Civil “open carry” voter “Intimidators” have decided that having their armed thugs to openly menace Democrats and Minorities at the Voting Booth, and by blocking access to the polls by arranging impossible voting requirement’s, is how they will use the exact tactics of pre-war Fascists under Mussolini to now take control of the United States.

Those who vote GOP seem to have no problems at the Voting Booth at all…..

In Atlanta the paperwork for an estimated 40,000 black newly registered voters vanished without a trace: the Supreme Court has done the work for the Koch Brothers with total alacrity. The Koch Brothers are our new Pharaohs, and a cancer on the body politic which may well yet prove fatal.

Their secret Supreme Court Justices pay-offs, probably in the millions, now sit in hidden accounts; a golden parachute of archangelically demonic corruption on a scale so large as to be unheard of in American history. With the evil food monopolists of Monsanto, who now rule, above the Law, with their former lawyer, Clarence Thomas; as he steadfastly refuses too recuse himself in their cases, which alone stands as a flagrant and blatant violation of judicial ethics for which he should be impeached, and which sticks out like a gangrenously sore thumb: is now the very one he uses to thumb his nose at America with, unhappily for us!!!

A Man of Integrity and Vision

A Man of Integrity and Vision

The Southern Koch Sponsored Plutocracy

The South has now fully armed itself, with traitors like Ted Nugent and many others now openly threatening the life of the President with glee,  and threaten anyone in public office who dares openly to oppose them. This they do in myriad ways, many anonymously.

None of them are even investigated anymore, as there are too many of them, it seems. 

The drumbeat for violence against our President, and the open rebellion advocated by  fascists like Ben Carlson continues to grow, daily; more and more lies and calls for uprising and the moral desertion of public office for “religious principles” of open Sedition and outright Treason..

The calls for presidential assassination and succession by southern and mid-western states grow daily louder; and the shrill demonic bleating of the goats as Barack hate-mongers, and the daily bombast of deception of Limbaugh and of Fox News, as they triumphantly and now legally have won the Right to Lie and mislead the American public, has had it’s cancerous and murderous effect, mainly on the body politic of the happily and woefully right-wing Christian  fundamentalistically ignorant hatemongers like Sarah Palin; who now lives on her diet of the total denial of reality; as she and her rabble greedily drink up the lies she is spoon-fed by the Koch ALEC “Legion of the Devil”, as her racially pandemically poisonous mother’s milk.

Swearing In

…………………………….The Bible of Trump: Mein Kampf hidden in the Red Box…………………………………………………

The Pursuit of Governmental Overthrow by the GOP

The rise and trumpeting of Deceit by the Fox demagogues is only the clarion call of moral decay and military doom,  for the growing army of the violent Antichristian Right-Wing; and their Arch-Narcissist and patently satanic False Christ: Ted Cruz.

Before we had the advent of the Ronald Wilson Reagan agenda, the caviar of the upper class by which we saw the enshrinement of the new policy of taking from the poor to give to the rich we were warned, by many of our greatest and profoundly acutely aware leaders, of the dangers of political power being abrogated from the Will of the People by ending up in the hands of a few wealthy and corrupt men.

George Webb’s Whistleblower… Part II of “The Wonderfully Good… the Horrifically Evil… and the Intrinsically Ugly: how George decided that those that Worship the Beast and his Image should let Trump Win another 4 Years to establish the 4th Reich”

Thomas Clay Jr.

Dear George Webb ;

Whistleblower ??? Dan Coates…..But God forbid we put the most corrupt president in the history of America out of his nest… to face life in prison… if he’s lucky…. as for the rest…..

Wait until George has his former lover Julie Swetnick pegged as having been determined to have planned Brett Kavanaugh’s trial and removal from office when she was 5 years old ….. and I’m not even kidding…. as Trump and his little Nazi Steve Miller are even now planning concentration camps for homeless people…George just smiles and keeps talking… he’ll be smiling when they’ve arranged with the Supreme Court to make it legal for corporations to fire people for being gay… or black …or …. non-Christians…

Trump posits being Dictator for life??? George thinks that’s a dandy idea…. his love of the Rule of Law and defending the Constitution now mysteriously and suddenly absent.

It’s Dan Coates *or* Sue Gordon. It has to be. Two weeks after he resigned he walked into a meeting at the White House and told his deputy she needed to resign immediately and she did. Four days after that the Inspector General got the whistleblower report! In addition to this we know the unnamed whistleblower has retained an attorney who was a career lawyer at the CIA and is now in private practice.

This lends even more credence to it being Coates. If he told the president of Ukraine that the $250 million in military aid is dependent on them investigating Biden, holy shit! In an interesting turn of events, Rudy Giuliani said on CNN tonight that if Trump did do that, it wasn’t illegal! Umm, yes it is Rudy. Offering a foreign nation money to do damage to your political enemies is downright corruption not seen since Sadaam and Idi Amin were around.

This is tin pot dictator politicking and if this is true, Trump will have to resign. Trump is easy to predict because he is a simpleton and he only operates transactionally. My learned guess here is that Trump promised to deliver the military goods if the President of Ukraine opened an investigation of Biden. I would bet a shiny new platinum dollar that this is what Trump did.

Watch Republicans the next few days.

They are deathly quiet and today Mitch even approved $250 million in election security funds. That says that not only was he sick of being called Moscow Mitch, it also says he’s nervous about something. This is not going to end well for Trump. Make no mistake, the Inspector General is a Trump appointee and whoever the whistleblower is, worked inside this administration. This isn’t the ‘deep state.’ This is one of Trump’s own people and the IG agreed that this was a matter that needed to go to congress. Bill Barr and Maguire are now breaking the law in full view of the people. The highest law enforcement official and the highest national security official in this country are crooks.

They are felons thumbing their noses at the rule of law right now. Without the rule of law, we aren’t a Republic, we are subjects of a dictator. **Update** I am going to say something now that I hope everyone understands the gravitas of. *After* Adam Schiff sent his letter to the DNI to release the Whistleblower complaint, Trump released the $250 million to the Ukraine the next day.

The. Next. Day.

The *ONLY* thing that makes sense given this fact is that Trump withheld that money in order to make the Ukrainian president investigate Biden as Rudy Giuliani said tonight on CNN was the biggest scandal ever.

Once someone explained that this was illegal as fuck, Trump released the funds in order to make it look as though he did not cajole the president of the Ukraine into investigating Biden and his son. Donald Trump was using the money of the American people to force a foreign government to start and investigation of his political opponent.

That is why they are so desperate to conceal that whistleblower report. My god, this is unbelievable. He must be removed from office. If this is true, Trump will not be running for president.

He will be running to Russia to avoid dying in prison. https://www.cnn.com/…/rudy-giuliani-joe-biden-uk…/index.html

“Dear George Webb ….

It seems in light of Trump now openly stating at his rally in New Mexico today that he intends to remain in office for at least 14 years that your support for Donald Trump in his attempt to destroy America and the Constitution are now going to be seen as something closer to what they actually are …….which is basically treason…….

Could you explain why you are doing this, while keeping any credibility in your claim to being a defender and staunch protector of the Rule of Law and a passionate foe of all who violate the Constitution…??? ????…  asking for 330 million Americans…”

“….Dear George;

Netanyahu lost by nine seats and is refusing to concede saying that the media is to blame for his having lost

Donald Trump today at a rally in New Mexico said he was going to stay in office for at least 14 years and obviously has no intention of conceding after his guaranteed loss in 2020

With both Netanyahu and Trump now obviously working together in overturning the institutions of democracy in both Israel and America we can extrapolate the response from the Intelligence community’s on these two Rogue presidents who have decided to unilaterally take over the Western Hemisphere and initiate a full coup using nuclear weapons as the ultimate trump card

Netanyahu is going to jail but is now going to attempt to take over Israel with the extreme right-wing Coalition even though it lost because he believes that he is a divinely appointed figure…

….exactly like Trumps claim of being the “King of Israel” with the support of the Southern Neo Confederate / Antichristian Evangelicals, who claim that he is the Messiah…”

“….Dear George,

I left a note…thanks for fingering “POW POW” Pientka for being the cat behind the killing of the White Hat we both witnessed getting dusted at the North Gate that sad day…..you were 50 yards away..

Was the whole thing done as a personal warning to you ??? Seems like maybe, since you were observing your contact going to the appointment you both thought was a potential set up…and indeed it was…

Ah yes…

Former top FBI attorney James Baker admitted to House lawmakers in October last year that the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russia was riddled with abnormalities.

Confronted with a damning summary of abnormalities, bias, and omissions that transpired during the investigation, Baker told Congress that the investigation was indeed “highly unusual.”

“I had a jaundiced eye about everything, yes. I had skepticism about all this stuff. I was concerned about all of this. This whole situation was horrible, and it was novel and we were trying to figure out what to do, and it was highly unusual,” Baker told lawmakers.

Members of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees conducted the interviews in an unclassified setting, with agency counsel present to ensure that classified information didn’t enter into the unclassified setting. The transcripts of the interviews haven’t been publicly released, but were obtained for this article.

Baker served as the FBI’s general counsel when the bureau investigated the Trump campaign, and also Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server. During two days of testimony on Oct. 3 and Oct. 18, he told lawmakers that he believed even toward the end of the Clinton investigation that she should have been charged over her “alarming, appalling” mishandling of classified information.

He argued with others, including then-FBI Director James Comey, about the issue all the way toward the end of the investigation, but was ultimately persuaded that Clinton should be exonerated.

“My original belief … after having conducted the investigation and towards the end of it, then sitting down and reading a binder of her materials, I thought that it was alarming, appalling, whatever words I said, and argued with others about why they thought she shouldn’t be charged,” Baker told lawmakers.

As of October 2018, almost two years after the Clinton probe concluded, Baker still believed that the conduct of the former secretary of state and her associates was “appalling,” with regard to the handling of classified information.

As general counsel, Baker advised senior FBI leaders on the legal aspects of key investigations and served as the liaison with the Department of Justice (DOJ). In testimony, he detailed a series of unusual steps he took in the Trump–Russia investigation, including serving as the conduit between Perkins Coie—the firm working for the Clinton 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC)—and the FBI.

Baker left his position as general counsel in early January 2018, and resigned from the FBI in early May 2018.

Baker testified that it was Michael Sussmann, a partner at Perkins Coie, who shared with him information that detailed alleged communications between servers in Trump Tower and servers located in Russia at Alfa Bank—an allegation that eventually was debunked. Sussmann was also the lawyer who spearheaded the handling of the alleged hack of the DNC servers. Baker admitted that it was highly unusual to interact with an outside counsel.

Mr. Jordan: [This] is the first time and to your recollection the only time an outside counsel had information and was wanting to make sure it got to the general counsel of the FBI, and it happened to deal with the Russia investigation.

Mr. Baker: I that that’s correct. Sitting here today, that’s the only one I can remember.

Baker had at least three meetings with Sussmann—the first in person and the following two by phone. During the subsequent meetings, Baker discovered that Sussmann was speaking to the media regarding the same information he shared with Baker.

Baker admitted during his testimony that he knew Sussmann had professional involvement with the DNC.

Baker acknowledged that he soon discovered that Sussmann was also speaking to The New York Times regarding that same information. The FBI later contacted The New York Times and asked the newspaper to hold off on publishing while the bureau investigated the matter.

The information that Sussmann passed to Baker also appeared in the so-called Steele dossier, in a memo dated Sept. 14, 2016. Notably, Sussmann met with Baker five days later, on Sept. 19, 2016. Baker had initially testified he believed the meeting took place sometime before the election. Lawmakers later provided a specific date.

The server and Alfa Bank were investigated by the FBI, and were also the subject of a journalistic investigation by The New York Times. Nothing was found.

The server in question wasn’t operated by the Trump Organization, but “run and managed by Cendyn, a vendor that organizes email marketing campaigns for hotels and resorts,” according to a Nov. 2, 2016, article by Slate. The traffic was simply “mass emails, related to loyalty programs, discount offers, and the like.”

During lawmaker questioning of Baker’s interactions with Mother Jones reporter David Corn, it was revealed that Baker was the subject of an ongoing criminal leak investigation by the DOJ. Baker admitted to having received parts of the Steele dossier from Corn. Baker testified that these sections were different than the ones already in the FBI’s possession.

Mr. Baker: My recollection is that he had part of the dossier, that we had other parts already, and that we got still other parts from other people, and that — and nevertheless some of the parts that David Corn gave us were parts that we did not have from another source.

Baker said he either knew or assumed at the time that Corn had gotten the dossier from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, whom Steele was working for.

Simpson had been hired by the DNC and the Clinton campaign through Perkins Coie to produce the dossier on then-candidate Trump. Former British spy Christopher Steele compiled the dossier, which the FBI later used as the core of the FISA application to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Baker told investigators that he personally reviewed portions of the Page FISA application, adding that this wasn’t something he would usually get involved in. He also admitted that he didn’t review the Woods file, which provides underlying documentation for the accuracy of facts represented in the FISA application.

Baker testified that he told Comey at some point that he thought the FISA “was legally sufficient.” Baker, however, appears not to have been aware of the politicized nature of some the information. He also acknowledged he had only read part of the FISA.

DOJ official Bruce Ohr, who was a key conduit between Steele and the FBI, previously testified to the joint committee that he had informed the bureau of Steele’s anti-Trump bias, and that the dossier was tied to the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Neither fact appeared in the final FISA application before it was approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Baker also said that he only became aware of the fact that Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS—which had also employed Steele—from public reporting.

Mr. Ratcliffe: When did you become aware that the wife of the number four person at the Department of Justice was helping in the creation of the Steele dossier? …

Mr. Baker: To the best of my recollection, I think I learned about that through public reporting.

When asked whether he was aware of Bruce Ohr’s warning to the FBI, Baker responded, “I don’t recall ever hearing that before just right now.” Baker told lawmakers he was aware Ohr served as Steele’s back-channel to the FBI, but said he was unaware, however, that Ohr’s FBI handler, agent Joe Pientka, funneled the intelligence to FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page.

Strzok and Page exchanged dozens of text messages expressing bias against Trump and support for Clinton, while playing key roles on the investigations related to both candidates. The discovery of the text messages led to the removal of Strzok from the Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Baker told lawmakers he ordered an investigation into the messages shortly after reading them.

“I only read like a couple, literally a couple. But that was enough for me to hear, that it freaked me out. And I was worried and I thought we need to get on top of this quickly,” Baker said.

Baker said that, despite an ongoing investigation by the DOJ inspector general, he “consulted with other folks” at the FBI to put together a team to do a review the text messages.

What I truly love best about George and these broadcasts is the enjoyment I have at watching a real professional hold forth on how poor Mr. Trump was ganbanged by those evil felons in the FBI and other Intel groups….

What George NEVER explains is how Mr. Comey and the rest of Georges bogeymen were RESPONSIBLE for RUSSIAN operatives coming into America who inserted themselves into the NRA and conservative gun-toting Christian Organizations and who were somehow able to get $30 million dollars from the Russian Government which mysteriously ended up in the coffers of poor Mr. Trumps Presidential Campaign….

To hear George tell it; this fact is just another sign of the proof that the millions given to Mitch McConnell, Trump, and all the rest of the criminals who have taken over the government was a plot by the Democrats and Ohrs, Gaeta, and Steele to make Trump look bad, which they were able to accomplish by having Russian spies invented by the DNC like Butina to infiltrate Trumps campaign, give it millions of dollars and absolute political support and cover…..but that this had nothing to do with Putin and his KGB trained gangbangers trying to make sure that their heavily compromised asset Mr Trump got into Office,,,,,perhaps so he could start giving Putin Top secret Intel every night in those delightful conversation from the White House which are done on a phone that I can guarantee you can’t be monitored…a little gift from Lavrov; I am sure; when Trump cheerily announced that he had the “absolute right to share Top Secret Information with the Russians” wherever he damned well pleased…. a strange thing to say; as we have seen with the hastily uprooted spy from Putin’s Office whose life and mission Trump so breezily destroyed…. and whose ability to take pictures of top secret documents is now over

Waiting to hear Georges explanation on even a single one of the points I have brought up…..

I, for one; am no longer holding my breath…

 

THE WHOLE STORY…

Dear George,

I left a note…thanks for fingering “POW POW” for being the cat behind the killing of the White Hat we both witnessed getting dusted at the North Gate that sad day…..you were 50 yards away..

Was the whole thing done as a personal warning to you ??? Seems like maybe, since you were observing your contact going to the appointment you both thought was a potential set up…and indeed it was…

The End of the Separation of Church and State in America by the GOP

The End of democracy in America occurred unknown to the American people because it happened in secrecy in a Government Federal building in Washington DC, in a carefully orchestrated and cunningly devised Invisible Coup against the US Government itself,  aided and abetted by the GOP leadership, in collusion with Speaker Hastert, who allowed the heavenly deception to be completed by the illegal and unconstitutional Crowning of Mr. and Mrs. Moon on Government Property, in Violation of Federal Law,
and a successful plot to destroy the Constitution of the United States of America.
 
It was done so quickly no one had time to blink they said,
but the planning of this “Crowning” of Moon and his wife was in reality
an act of Treason against the Nation of America itself.

Hypocritical right-wing religious nationalists have a plan to create a new Christian America

– and that’s why they put up with Trump

It’s just beginning to dawn on folks how much Donald Trump’s presidency relies on religious support. All the scandals surrounding Trump have brought intense attention to the 81 percent support he received from evangelical Christians in the 2016 election. New research by Andrew Whitehead, meanwhile, explicates such support in the context of Christian nationalism, and historian John Fea has published an important new book, “Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump.

But the power of the presidency isn’t the only way Christian nationalism is advancing its agenda in America today. As researcher Frederick Clarkson reported at Religion Dispatches, a coalition of Christian right groups — including the Congressional Prayer Caucus FoundationWallbuilders, the National Legal Foundation and others — have organized a major legislative initiative called  “Project Blitz.” Its goal is to pass an outwardly diverse but internally cohesive package of Christian-right bills at the state level, whose cumulative impact would be immense.

The agenda underlying these bills is not merely about Christian nationalism, a term that describes an Old Testament-based worldview fusing Christian and American identities, and meant to sharpen the divide between those who belong to those groups and those who are excluded. It’s also ultimately “dominionist,” meaning that it doubles down on the historically false notion of America as a “Christian nation” to insist that a a particular sectarian view of God should control every aspect of life, through all manner of human institutions. Christian nationalists are not in a position to impose their vision now, and to be fair, many involved in the movement would never go that far. But as explained by Julie Ingersoll inBuilding God’s Kingdom: Inside the World of Christian Reconstruction” (Salon interview here), dominionist ideas have had enormous influence on the religious right, even among those who overtly disavow them.

“The authors of the Project Blitz playbook are savvy purveyors of dominionism,” Clarkson told Salon. “They are in it for the long haul and try not to say things that sound too alarming. ​But they live an immanent theocratic vision, and they sometimes cannot help themselves, such as when they describe the resolutions as seeking to ‘define public policies of the state in favor of biblical values concerning marriage and sexuality.’

“Among the ways they are seeking to implement ‘biblical values,’” Clarkson continued, “is by seeking religious exemptions from civil rights laws and professional licensing standards.” The two-tiered society this would create reflects the essence of Christian nationalism, as Whitehead describes it.

Whitehead told Salon: “Our work shows that believing that the United States is a ‘Christian nation’ and desiring a close, symbiotic relationship between Christianity and civil society is significantly associated with a number of stances like opposition toward same-sex marriage, antipathy toward religious minorities and a tendency toward endorsing stricter racial boundaries in romantic and family relationships.” So it makes sense, he continued, “that these groups who advocate for a formal recognition of the ‘Christian nation’ narrative are also seeking to formalize support for particular definitions of marriage, gender identity and family structure” — definitions that elevate some people and effectively subjugate others.

So far, supporters of this initiative have introduced 71 bills nationwide this year (or carried them over from last year), according ttracking by Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Most have innocuous or feel-good names like the National Motto Display Act (23 bills), the First Amendment Defense Act (10 bills), the Child Protection Act (four bills), the Bible Literacy Act (eight bills) and the Clergy Protection Act (six bills). The goal is to come across as apple-pie Americans, while copying the conservative pro-corporate model of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which has been strikingly successful. But the guiding vision behind Project Blitz is heavily influenced bpseudo-historian David Barton, a leading propagandist for the myth that America was founded as a “Christian nation.”

 “David Barton has been discredited by every American historian I know, including evangelical historians who teach at the most conservative Christian colleges in the country, including Bob Jones University and Liberty University,” John Fea (author of the above-mentioned “Believe Me”) told Salon. “He is a politician who uses the past for his own political agenda.”

But that’s not the whole story. “Having said that, he is one of the most important people in American politics today,” Fea continued. “Why? If Andrew Whitehead and his colleagues are correct, evangelicals supported Trump because they believe America was founded as, and continues to be, a Christian nation. No one has promoted this narrative more effectively than David Barton.”

The war injury conjured up by the name “Project Blitz” is no accident. This is religious war in the minds of those waging it, and they’ve got specific goals and strategies in mind. But it’s not easy for outsiders to see what’s going on here, as Clarkson explains in his story:

The bills are seemingly unrelated and range widely in content — from requiring public schools to display the national motto, “In God We Trust” (IGWT); to legalizing discrimination against LGBTQ people; to religious exemptions regarding women’s reproductive health. The model bills, the legislative strategy and the talking points reflect the theocratic vision that has animated many in the Christian Right for some time. In the context of Project Blitz’s 116-page playbook, however, they also reveal a highly sophisticated level of coordination and strategizing that echoes the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which infamously networks pro-business state legislators, drafts legislation, and shares legislative ideas and strategies.

The Right Wing Coup in the Dirksen Building in Washington DC

The bills are organized into three tiers, “according to the degree of opposition they anticipate — 1 being the least,” Clarkson reports. “The general plan is to begin with the less controversial measures to get legislators comfortable with the subject matter; to seek small victories first.” The full meaning and significance of the earlier measures will not become readily apparent until later measures build on them and covertly synergies are revealed.

The first tier, “Legislation Regarding Our Country’s Religious Heritage,” aims at importing the Christian nationalist worldview (including Barton’s bogus history) into public schools and other aspects of the public sphere. It starts simply with display of the motto, “In God We Trust,” a Cold War replacement for “e pluribus unum” — out of many, one — which better reflects America’s pragmatic, pluralist foundations. The second tier, “Resolutions and Proclamations Recognizing the Importance of Religious History and Freedom,” aims at making government increasingly a partner in “Christianizing” America. The third tier, “Religious Liberty Protection Legislation,” has three subcategories, one dealing with “public policy resolutions,” the other two with specifically targeted but sweepingly conceived “protections” for religious practices.

“Category 3’s focus on religious liberty is especially relevant today,” in the wake of the Supreme Court’s historic Obergefell decision, said Daniel Bennett, author ofDefending Faith: The Politics of the Christian Conservative Legal Movement.” With same-sex marriage a settled issue, right-wing Christian groups “will want to prioritize protection for religious liberty, defined in their specific way. The Christian legal movement is fighting these battles in the court, but these sorts of legislative proposals show how wide-ranging the broader movement’s strategy is.”

It’s a defensive fight now, but it’s also laying the groundwork for a possible future counter-offensive. “Although Category 3 is divided in three parts, you could also see it as having two main underlying intentions,” said Clarkson. “First to denigrate the LGBTQ community, and second to defend and advance the right to discriminate.

This is one way that the agenda of theocratic dominionism is reframed as protecting the right of theocrats to discriminate against those deemed second-class, at best. As the late theocratic theologian R.J. Rushdoony said, ‘Only the right have rights.‘”

Bills protecting the “right” to discriminate against the LGBTQ community are the most salient example of how Project Blitz aims to produce a radically altered “Handmaid’s Tale-style America. But even the most innocent-seeming proposal — introducing the motto “In God We Trust” into schools — has a divisive, discriminatory, damaging impact, sharply at odds with its presentation.

“To an ex-evangelical such as myself, Project Blitz is deeply concerning,” Christopher Stroop told Salon. Stroop is a scholar, writer and Twitter personality with a history and humanities Ph.D. from Stanford, who is currently senior research associate with the Postsecular Conflicts project. As he says, he spent many years in the evangelical world.

“When I was growing up in the 1980s,” Stroop said, “two issues that were frequently lamented in my evangelical community were the legalization of abortion and the supposed banning of prayer in school — ‘supposed’ because the right-wing evangelicals I grew up with usually failed to note that the Supreme Court had only ended officially school-sponsored prayer, and had not outlawed private prayer in schools. Extreme exaggeration of the ostensible persecution we supposedly faced as Christians was prevalent in my childhood milieu.”

The attempt to reverse that imagined persecution can have real damaging effects, as Stroop notes. In examining the goal of requiring “In God We Trust” to be displayed in public schools, he said, “I cannot help but associate this goal with evangelical resentment over legal limitations on prayer in school, and to see it as an attempt to take a step toward the Christianization of public schools. On its own, posting the motto ‘In God We Trust’ in schools would already embolden Christian nationalists present in those schools, leading Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, liberal and atheist children to feel alienated and pressured to conform.”

The End of Democracy in America:

The Unlawful End of Democracy

The Unlawful End of Democracy

For those who were there on March 13th, at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, saw the opening ceremony, with a rabbi blowing a ram’s horn.

“…….Most Jews would hold off on this until the High Holy Days, but it probably counts if the Moshiach shows up in a federal office building at taxpayer expense. Then we see the man of the hour, Moon, chilling at a table at the Dirksen in a tuxedo, soaking all this up. He claps. He’s having a ball.

Cut to the ritual. Eyes downcast, a man identified as Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) is bringing a crown, atop a velvety purple cushion, to a figure who stands waiting austerely with his wife. Now Moon is wearing robes that Louis XIV would have appreciated. All of this has quickly been spliced into a promo reel by Moon’s movement, which implies to its followers that the U.S. Congress itself has crowned the Washington Times owner…..”

For those who think the Democrats were virgins in this matter I sadly point out this:

“………But there were also liberal House Democrats like Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) and Davis. Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) later told the Memphis Flyer that he’d been erroneously listed on the program, but had never heard of the event, which was sponsored by the Washington Times Foundation.  ( Now run by my “almost an acquaintance” Larry Moffitt ) 

Rep. Curt Weldon’s office tenaciously denied that the Congressman was there, before being provided by The Gadflyer with a photos quite accurate that the Washington Timeshost, but we have nothing to do with the agenda, the organization, the scheduling, and our role would be limited explicitly to the attendance of the Congressman…..”

Heavenly Deception Strikes Again

 

“…….The spokeswoman for one senator, who asked that her boss not be named, said politicians weren’t told the awards program was going to be a Moon event.

The senator went, she said, because the Ambassadors promised to hand out awards to people from his home state, people who were genuinely accomplished. When the ceremony morphed into a platform for Moon, she said, people were disconcerted.

“I think there was a mass exodus,” she said.

“They get all these senators on the floor, and this freak is there.”

A New World Order

“……The last time someone declared himself Emperor of the United States, it was the Gold Rush’s Joshua Norton, a sort of failed dot-commer of the 1850s. But he was broke, whereas a random sampling of Moon’s properties might include a healthy chunk of the U.S. fishing industry, the graphic tablet company Wacom, and swaths of real estate on an epic scale. The money-losing Times is paid for by the $1 billion he’s sunk into it, along with untold funding for conservative policy foundations like the American Family Coalition.

George Soros has recently gotten lots of coverage as a supposedly eccentric billionaire influencing U.S. politics. But Soros is no Moon. In Moon’s speeches, a “peace kingdom” is envisioned, in which homosexuals – whom he calls “dung-eating dogs” – would be a thing of the past.

He said in January: “Gays will be eliminated, the three Israel’s will unite. If not, then they will be burned. We do not know what kind of world God will bring, but this is what happens. It will be greater than the communist purge but at God’s orders.”

TRUMP…and the “REAL DEAL”

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

“….Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise…”

A Comparison in Perspectives

“….The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.,,,”

Christopher Witt Diamant

“….During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US…..”

Harvey Lewis

“…The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?….

Christopher Witt Diamant

“…Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.,,,”

Harvey Lewis

“….Are you waiting for impeachment?

Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns?

Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election?

Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land?

Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Breaking News: All roads lead back to you.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

The United States Defense Budget, Which, I’ve Been Told, Takes Over 50% of The Overall Budget and Is Growing, Constantly, Every Year, Has Been, and Is, Destroying the Lives of Millions of People, In the Middle East, Delivering, Depleted Uranium and Other Weapons, There, Thousands of Miles Away, from The United States; While Saving the Burning Homes of American Citizens in Southern California, Puerto Rico, and Other Locations in America, Seems To Be A Lofty, High and Mighty, Proposition, Since It Seems, That, There Isn’t Much or Any Monies Allocated in The Defense Budget, To Actually, Save American Citizens, In the Lands of America, in the Aftermath of Disasters, While Another $80 Billion Dollars, Is Being Added To The Defense Budget, Just This Year. So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

America Needs To Have Other Stockpiles of Bombs and Weapons In That Region of The World, We Just Can’t Run Out of Bombs Again, Like We Did When We Dropped, 26,000 Bombs on the Country of Syria, Suffering, Under The Dictates, of Who, American’s are Told, is The Syrian Dictator Assad, That was Elected With 80% per cent of The Syrian Citizens Vote. We Just Don’t Happen to Know, For Sure, if Those Elections, Were Rigged Or Not, Like, They May Have Been Rigged, Here In America, The Land of the Free, and The Home of The Brave.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Breaking News: All roads lead back to you.

The political parties are not going to save your democracy for you. The FBI is not going to discover the truth for you. The Justice Department is not going to hold the corporate criminals accountable for you. And your savior is not going to teach you how to Love.

This is the good news. You have the power to claim your freedom, save your democracy, establish unity, and demand justice for all.

Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.

the Neo-Confederacy Shadow of the Beast and his Image:

Donald J. Trump

The Rebirth of Jim Crow: the reborn KKK and their Evil Racist Violent Shadow: The Rise of full Trumpery with Nazism in America

 

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Share on Facebook

 

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

Donald J. Trump

The Rebirth of Jim Crow: the reborn KKK and their Evil Racist Violent Shadow: The Rise of full Trumpery with Nazism in America

 

Trumpery derives from the Middle English trompery and ultimately from the Middle French tromper, meaning “to deceive.” (You can see the meaning of this root reflected in the French phrase trompe-l’oeil – literally, “deceives the eye“-which in English refers to a style of painting with photographically realistic detail.) 

Trumpery first appeared in English in the mid-15th century with the meanings “deceit or fraud” (a sense that is now obsolete) and “worthless nonsense.” Less than 100 years later, it was being applied to material objects of little or no value.

The verb phrase trump up means “to concoct with the intent to deceive,” but there is most likely no etymological connection between this phrase and trumpery.

A Comparison in Perspectives

“….The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.,,,”

Christopher Witt Diamant

“….During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US…..”

Harvey Lewis

“…The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?….

“…Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.,,,”

Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Let That Sink In:

President Donald Trump, 
Just Happens, To Be Following, 
In The Footsteps, of His Predecessors, 
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, By Selling Billions of Dollars, In Weaponry, to The Royal Family, of Saudi Arabia.

As Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family, 
Continues To Bomb Yemen,

One of the Poorest Countries, In This World.

Making Selling Weapons of Mass Destruction In The Middle East, Part of His Strategic Plans, The Leaders of The Free World, Plans; to Make and Share Freedom Abroad, With The Rest of The World, As, Donald Trump Is Making This Country, America, Great, Again, By Maintaining and Keeping The American Political Establishment, Status Quo, Intact, By Keeping America In The #1 Position of Countries in The World That Sell Weapons of Mass Destruction, While President Donald Trump, Is Dreaming, That America, Can Be Great Again, By Growing The Mass Production of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Maintaining Americas, #1 Position, of Producing The Most, And Best Wartime Products, In The Industrialized World, For More Corporate Profits.

America Needs To Have Other Stockpiles of Bombs and Weapons In That Region of The World, We Just Can’t Run Out of Bombs Again, Like We Did When We Dropped, 26,000 Bombs on the Country of Syria, Suffering, Under The Dictates, of Who, American’s are Told, is The Syrian Dictator Assad, That was Elected With 80% per cent of The Syrian Citizens Vote. We Just Don’t Happen to Know, For Sure, if Those Elections, Were Rigged Or Not, Like, They May Have Been Rigged, Here In America, The Land of the Free, and The Home of The Brave.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

A Comparison in Perspectives

“….The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.,,,”

Christopher Witt Diamant

“….During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US…..”

Harvey Lewis

“…The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

Trump, however, has personal reasons for wanting to kill the story. Back when he was a businessman with no political aspirations, Trump developed deep business ties to Russia. During the recession, Russia was a viable source of funding for his hotels, golf courses, and other businesses.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?….

“…Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.,,,”

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

German Newspaper Just Said

What Every Sane American Thinks of Trump

Let’s be honest right off the bat: Donald Trump is a terrible president. Oh, and he’s a terrible person. And you can throw in a terrible American, too.

And it seems that while things continue to deteriorate, the lines have already been drawn. Nothing Trump does or says at this point is going to change the minds of the hardcore Trump supporters. Meanwhile, the rest of America – the ones who are rational, thoughtful, and objective – are left shaking our heads.

As Trump continues to isolate the United States, however, the world has begun to weigh in. And one German newspaper has just said what every sane American already thinks about Trump. And folks, it’s brutal.

Der Spiegel just published an article calledA Danger to the World: It’s Time to Get Rid of Donald Trump.”

Here are some of the highlights:

“…Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States.

He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it.

He doesn’t read.

He doesn’t bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

And with that opening, they capture the basic problem most Americans have with our criminal-in-chief. But it goes on:

He is a man free of morals.

As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump.

And one of the media’s tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly.

He is a danger to the world.

Trump is a miserable politician. He fired the FBI director simply because he could.

James Comey had gotten under his skin with his investigation into Trump’s confidants. Comey had also refused to swear loyalty and fealty to Trump and to abandon the investigation.

He had to go…..

Trump is also a miserable boss. His people invent excuses for him and lie on his behalf because they have to, but then Trump wakes up and posts tweets that contradict what they have said.

He doesn’t care that his spokesman, his secretary of state and his national security adviser had just denied that the president had handed Russia (of all countries) sensitive intelligence gleaned from Israel (of all countries).

Trump tweeted:

“…Yes, yes, I did, because I can. I’m president after all…..”

So, It Seems, Rather Strange, To Me, That The Only Types of Responses, We are Getting, From Our Fearless Leader, President Donald John Trump, After These Recent Disasters, Is; “There’s A Big Ocean Out There”, and Giving Himself, A Ten, For Being, The Greatest, at Paper Towel Tosses, To Dying, Puerto Rican, American Citizens.

Commented:

Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in America.

Wanna know why?

Because he was crucified by his own party before he had the chance to run in the general election. That made him the martyr who would have saved us if only he hadn’t died at the hands of political corruption.

Now Bernie gets to hang out in the Democratic Party and bask in his mythology while the Party uses him as a lure to bring the disenfranchised progressives back into the fold. Don’t forget that Jesus was crucified for preaching Love. Now we tell stories about how he could turn water into wine and walk on the water. Every hero looks larger in the rear view mirror.

Have I offended you? Please let me know why in the comments below but only after you finish reading this article.

Are you offended because you still believe in Bernie? Are you are waiting for Bernie to convert the Corporate Neo-Liberals to his progressive ideals by working them from the inside?

Bernie told you that change happens from the bottom to the top. Corruption does not change from the inside out. The corruption will end when a greater vision becomes so popular that it rises up and dissolves everything unlike itself.

Are you offended because I compared Bernie to your personal savior? Let me remind you that Jesus did not ask to be your personal savior. That was your idea. Jesus said; “Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.”

Are waiting for the return of the Messiah? Maybe the real return of the Teacher is that moment when the disciples begin to live the teachings.

Perhaps there isn’t much difference between religion and politics. At the heart of every religion, you can find the principle of Love obscured by doctrine and dogma. Similarly, at the heart of every political movement, you can find the truth obscured by strategy and agenda.

In this era of tribal politics, we each have our affiliation that demands our blind obedience and serves to divide us into separate camps. As long as we remain divided, our democracy will continue to be an illusion of choice, unity will carry on as an unrequited dream and freedom will remain an unfulfilled promise.

The current investigation into Russian involvement in our election process is a perfect illustration of how the political climate obscures the truth.

The DNC rigged their own primary election in favor of their pre-selected candidate of choice, a corrupt corporate establishment puppet. Their covert strategy and secret agenda were revealed when an insider leaked emails from the DNC server. As a way to divert attention from the content of the emails, the DNC created a narrative involving Russian hackers, although no evidence to support the story was ever presented.

When the DNC lost the general election for a variety of reasons including the rigging of their primary, their fraudulent convention, their corrupt candidate, a sloppy campaign, and the alienation of their progressive base, they decided to use the fabricated Russian narrative as the reason for their failure.

The Corporate Neo-Liberals supported by the corporate owned mainstream media have vigorously pursued the investigation into Russian involvement in our election process. Most Republicans who have been paying attention believe that the DNC-fabricated Russian narrative is political fiction.

You know those tax returns that Trump doesn’t want you to see? Those returns may have their own dirty little Russian stories to tell. If those stories were to go public, the Trump power trip would come to a screeching halt and the Republican Party would be swiftly kicked to the curb.

The American people continue to be divided by politics as the truth is hidden just below the surface. Tell me this: What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for impeachment? Are you waiting for Trump’s tax returns? Are you waiting for the FBI to find the evil Russians who stole our election? Are you waiting for Bernie to rise from the Establishment graveyard and lead us to the Promised Land? Are you waiting for Jesus to return and make Love cool again?

This is the good news. You have the power to claim your freedom, save your democracy, establish unity, and demand justice for all.

Greater works than these, you, too, shall do.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult?

Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP. Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

The flight of millions of Dixiecrats into the GOP shifted the balance of power inside the party nationwide. Their fear-soaked, delusional fervor converted that institution from a conventional political party into a white nationalist cult.

The Party of Lincoln now exists to help Neo-Confederates win the Civil War politically, long after losing it on the battlefield.
Anyone evaluating Republican plans for tax policy, health care, climate change, immigration, or almost any other subject, will struggle to identify logical explanations for GOP positions.

Our politics has not always been so divorced from facts. It was possible to find room for logical arguments about the merits of Reagan’s 1981 tax cuts. There were logical arguments on both sides of the 1986 tax increases Reagan realized had become necessary. People engaged in rational disagreements over priorities and potential consequences of those plans based on facts and reason.

No such basis exists for Republican policies now, explaining the absence of efforts at bipartisan agreement. Support for GOP plans is premised on cult allegiance and enforced by cult loyalty. Unbelievers would be no more likely to support Republican tax plans than to drink poison to catch a ride on a spaceship.

By all accounts, the members of the Heaven’s Gate cult were nice people who avoided harming others.

They kept their sickness inside their ranks.

By contrast, Republicans are forcing an entire country, and to a certain extent the world, to choke down their poisoned applesauce.

It is possible to see in Marshall Applewhite a suffering soul, tormented by mental illness, who drew a small number of similarly troubled individuals into his fatal orbit (pardon the pun).

It is increasingly difficult to extend the same sympathy to nice people like Paul Ryan. We don’t look back at Pol Pot or Jefferson Davis as “troubled souls” because the scale of the harm they inflicted obscures any sympathy.

Those who survive the poison will one day look back on Republicans of this era with a similar disgust.

Chris Ladd, former GOP Precinct Committeeman, author of “The Politics of Crazy” and creator of PoliticalOrphans.

“…..On the night of March 23, 1997, Marshall Applewhite prepared to achieve his life’s mission. He had already supervised the successful “evacuation” of several followers. The leader of the Heaven’s Gate cult would be the last of the chosen few to join the alien spacecraft trailing the Hale-Bopp Comet speeding past the Earth.

As he mixed a lethal dose of phenobarbital into his apple sauce, did he experience doubt? Did he wonder whether his psychiatrists had been right? Maybe there were no aliens waiting to whisk him away. He had failed to uncover any empirical evidence to support his worldview.

Perhaps that was because his worldview was flawed and false. No, he probably ate his poison and slipped the bag over his head with a smile on his face.

Republican Roy Moore, removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for his erratic behavior and banned from the mall for harassing teenage girls, has cloaked his campaign for the Senate in the language of “spiritual warfare.”

As such, he is the most apt representative of the Republican Party in our age of cult politics.

Moore is pitching himself as God’s candidate and his voters are slopping it up like poisoned applesauce. The party of “family values” is about to send a known sexual predator to the Senate because God wants them to.

This would be startling, except they already used the same reasoning to put a known sexual predator in the White House.

The same magical reasoning infects Republicans tax reform plans. We are in the eighth year of continuous job growth, the eighth year of economic expansion, and the eighth year of a head-spinning stock market boom. Corporate profits are at record levels and the economy has been redlining at full-employment for almost three years.

By any marginally credible economic reasoning, this would be an ideal moment to raise taxes, curb debt, make investments in public infrastructure, and just generally do the things one does at the peak of a long economic expansion.

At this moment, why are Republicans trying to slash taxes for the wealthy? Why would someone castrate themselves and commit suicide? Because that’s what the cult demands.

There are no bright economic minds suggesting that this is a good idea.

There is no difference of opinion among sane, credible people about whether America needs a massive tax cut for the rich.

An effort by Republican leaders to claim support among economists devolved into unabashed lying.

One of the “economists” listed as a supporter, Gil Sylvia, has yet to be identified and may not even exist. When one of the president’s minions pitched this idiotic tax plan to a panel of American CEO’s – men who will be getting fat tax cuts – they balked. In public.

On camera. Director Cohn’s stunned response after soliciting their backing should be etched on the tombstone of the former Party of Lincoln, “Why aren’t the other hands up?”

Cohn didn’t pause to hear their answer, because that isn’t how a cult works. Like a Soviet Commissar, he wasn’t soliciting feedback but measuring loyalty. He noted the disbelief of the apostates and simply moved on in righteous oblivion.

No reasoning accessible on the plane of logical thought supports this plan, just like no one outside the cult would ever let Roy Moore make decisions on their behalf.

Tax cuts, along with slashing government services, ending government support for health insurance, burning more coal, and a whole collection of other loony ideas, are now unconsidered articles of faith. Republican Jesus wants a tax cut. The faithful will comply.

Nothing in traditional Republican thought made this descent into madness inevitable.

In fact, most of what passes for current Republican orthodoxy contradicts the party’s ideological heritage.

Just twenty-five years ago, when Roy Moore was trolling the sidelines at homecoming for sweet young things, he was a member of the Democratic Party.

At the same time, Elizabeth Warren was a Republican. Something happened, and it had nothing at all to do with the traditional priorities of the Republican or Democratic parties.

Countries experience moments like this from time to time. We are long overdue for such a crisis, as our last major partisan breakdown occurred in the 1850’s.

Faced with tumultuous cultural, technological and economic upheaval, political systems may find themselves bottlenecked, unable to keep pace with evolutionary demands. Parties and ideologies are contorted into strange shapes under the pressure of rapid transformation.

Communism, for example, began as a ruthlessly empirical, atheistic approach to politics and economics. Influenced by the turmoil of the 20th century and the urgency of revolutionary demands, it quickly took on the trappings of a fanatical religion.

By the time the Khmer Rouge unleashed their wave of slaughter on Cambodia, Communism had devolved into little more than ideological window dressing for a tribal death cult. Ideology does not constrain fanatics.

How did the Republican Party became a dangerous cult? Desperate to halt a terrifying tide of social transformation, the political heirs of Jim Crow flooded into the weak and nearly empty infrastructure of the Southern GOP.

Men like Alabama’s Roy Moore and Texas’ Rick Perry were the last generation of white Southern men to begin their careers as Democrats.

A Comparison

Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.

During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US.

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

FDR and Bernie on the Same Page

FDR’s proposed second Bill of Rights that was filmed after he delivered his State of the Union Address via radio on January 11, 1944.

That FDR wanted to establish and give us these four basic rights shows what was supposed to come later on with Bernie Sanders, who then walked forward in the shoes of Dr. King, in setting up these Four Universal Rights in what would have become the foundation for saving not just America, but the entire world.

By passing these four amendments to the Constitution by all 50 states here in America as Bernie Sanders is planning, or as close to unanimous as it can get, America will set up the condition to remove the fallen nature at the Universal Level ( as of “the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth” ), having already been able to accomplish it at the global level with Bernie Sanders still standing, and even now still remaining vigilant at the altar of Elijah, we paid the indemnification of Justice Restored by denying her Highness Queen Jezebel/ Madame Hillary we fed all the people to be filled with Righteousness, for having not voted for Hillary Clinton on Principle, even though that guaranteed the Ascension of Donald Trump to the Presidency, and made us as a Nation endure great tribulation and suffering by Trump.

President Trump is the Image of the Beast that CNN created to be Hillary’s Paper Tiger, but who now stands as the American Kaiser for the Second Civil War of Dr. Pieczenik’s Neo Confederacy, the Dream of the late Senators Robert Byrd and Jesse Helms, as the establishment of the now Imperial White Supremacist House of Trump and the KKK, with their point man Steve Bannon recently  fired from his position as the National Security Adviser of Donald Trump; as having been the Official Ideological Enforcer of National Racism and the Aryan philosophy of White Supremacy

He lost his job at the White House due to the debacle of how he orchestrated the Trump-fest of the Neo Nazis at Charlottesville, Virginia.

…………..Alan Greenspan speaks of the Economic Dictatorship of the Corporate Fascists like Donald Trump that Theodore Roszak predicted; almost word-for-word ……….40 years earlier….

America now being directly under attack by Satan with the Economic Dictatorship of the Corporate Fascists s quite obvious

But Sanders in his Cry for Justice resonating across America that has now brought us the shared condition of indemnity in 2018 by which we might at this point reverse the entire process: namely with Strength through Diversity (“Out of Many: One”) as our United National Sacrifice of Blood, Sweat, and Tears, set into motion by My Generation and put forward  by their Spiritual Progeny the Millennials; to thus win the battle in 2020, thus setting up the Foundation of Salvation in America for the Great Work Accomplished, or “Standard Become“, to manifest Global Salvation at the Cosmic Level, setting up the final Victory with the Return of my Father Jesus, who will then Initiate the Creation of a New Heaven and a New Earth

==========================

Speaking at Liberty University today, Sept 14th 2015

==========================

“….I am not a theologian, I am not an expert on the Bible, nor am I a Catholic. I am just a United States senator from the small state of Vermont. But I agree with Pope Francis, who will soon be coming to visit us in the United States.

I agree with Pope Francis when he says, and I quote,

“The current financial crisis originated in a profound human crisis, the denial of the primacy of the human person,” and this is what he writes: “We have created new idols. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose,” end of quote.

And the pope also writes, quote,

“There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone. Money has to serve, not to rule,” end of quote.

Now those are pretty profound words, which I hope we will all think about. In the pope’s view, and I agree with him, we are living in a nation and in a world, and the Bible speaks to this issue, in a nation and in a world which worships not love of brothers and sisters, not love of the poor and the sick, but worships the acquisition of money and great wealth. I do not believe that is the country we should be living in.

Money and wealth should serve the people. The people should not have to serve money and wealth. (APPLAUSE)…..”

Jim the Evangelist bears Witness from that Night

Hi my name is Jim. I am the guy who recently posted onto Reddit under the Sanders4President Subreddit that I’m a Liberty University Alumni, and that I support Bernie, and think that he’s a good spokesman for justice.

I thought I would take a second to, sort of, unpack that, because I could tell there’s a lot of people, both Evangelical conservative folk and more liberal Bernie-supporting folk, who are very confused that I could occupy both worlds. So, I thought, I’ll take a few seconds and explain myself, and maybe that will be helpful for the conversation.

So a little bit about me. I am not a current student at Liberty. If I was, I actually wouldn’t have been able to post onto that Reddit board and say that I’m supporting Bernie. There is an Honor Code at Liberty University, and while it’s not always enforced, if you support a candidate who is pro-choice or pro-gay marriage, you can be punished by the University, up to and including expulsion from the school. So as a graduate of Liberty University, I’m in a good position to represent folks that might go there and people from the Evangelical tradition, but not be within the world that they can, you know, punish me for my opinion.

So I got my Bachelors degree in Religion from Liberty University, and I also got my Masters degree from Liberty University in Marriage and Family Therapy. In 2004 I worked for the George W. Bush campaign. I spent about 8 years as a Conservative pastor. And also as a schoolteacher at a conservative Christian academy. And today I serve my community as a therapist and also a pastoral counselor, somebody that folks from churches might go see to get counseling whenever they want to see somebody who’s both a clinical counselor but also a pastor.

So I serve all those roles. I think I’m pretty much a card-carrying Evangelical Christian. I still subscribe to a conservative evangelical theology. And what that means, a lot of people get confused when they hear the word ‘conservative,’ they assume you mean politically. ‘Conservative theology’ means that I believe the Bible is trustworthy, I think that God inspired it, Jesus was absolutely real, and really died on the cross, and really did resurrect three days later; and I am an Evangelical Christian in that way.

So, how did I come to find myself supporting Bernie Sanders? How did that evolution take place? How could it be that in 2004 I was working for the George W. Bush campaign, and today in 2015, as a double Liberty University graduate, under Jerry Falwell—when I went to school, Jerry Falwell was the Chancellor—how is it that I could be now supporting Bernie Sanders, who’s a very progressive, very liberal guy; he describes himself as a ‘democratic socialist.’ How do I find common ground on those two things?

Well a lot of people I think falsely believe that in order to do that you have to give up one of your sides. Either you have to not really be a progressive, and you’re just an Evangelical who just likes Bernie, or you have to not really be an Evangelical, and just secretly be a Progressive who’s faking it and pretending to be an Evangelical, but wouldn’t actually pass the litmus test of being an Evangelical.

I pass both tests, I am very much 100% legitimate in both camps, and I want to explain why that’s not a mythological thing, that’s not a disconnect. Some people call that a contradiction, or hypocrisy, it is absolutely not. I believe that my views are 100% consistent. And so I think that the shock value for that comes in beginning to appreciate that the Bible and Jesus, in my opinion and in my very moderate reading of the Bible and the words of Christ, leads us to a Progressive worldview.

And that is shocking to a lot of people, especially folks back home in the Evangelical community, they hear that and go, “What are you talking about? That’s heresy—”… it’s like, hold on. Hear me out. There is a Biblical argument for voting for Bernie Sanders, believe it or not, and I’m gonna walk you through it really quick on some key issues.

So that first issue that I’d kind of point your attention to is kind of what Bernie brought up during his speech at Liberty. Basically, the wealth inequality problem—and see a lot of us, on the Evangelical side think that what Jesus really cares about is gay marriage and abortion. And of course, the great irony is if you read the red letters of Jesus, there are no statements on abortion. There are no statements on gay marriage. Now, that’s not to say the Bible doesn’t speak about these things, but it certainly is to say that Jesus, founder and master of our faith, did not see fit to make these high-priority topics. It’s not to say he doesn’t care. But it is to say that we need to be careful not to ‘major on minors.’ We should be focused on the things Jesus did talk about.

So what did Jesus talk about?

So here’s the interesting thing. When I was watching Bernie Sanders talk at Liberty University, I was just really shocked, and something kind of magical happened for me, because as I watched that guy stand up on that stage, here’s what I saw. I saw a wild-haired Jew crying out in a hoarse voice, in a very forceful and forth-speaking way, he was convicting the Christian leaders and religious leaders in that University and calling us out for being complicit in the abandonment of those who suffer:

“The least of these.”

And siding with the powerful and the rich and the masters of this world.

And he was convicting us, and calling us out. And we scorned him, and we stared him down, and with sour faces we thought, “Who is this whacko? And why do all these people seem to follow him, seem to like him? This wild-haired Jew, crying out from the wilderness of the political Left, in his hoarse voice?”

And if you’re an Evangelical listening to me today, you already know where I’m going with this. When I heard Bernie speaking in that way, when I saw that guy on stage at Liberty University, I saw John the Baptist.

I saw the wild-haired, roughly-clothed John the Baptist, eating honey and wearing camel’s hair, and crying out to the religious leaders, the Pharisees of his day, calling them corrupt and complicit with those who have all the power and all the money and all the wealth, and for abandoning the people that God loves, that God cares about. For the Pharisees, who were siding with those who already have power and wealth and saying that they will be the last in the Kingdom of God, and that the weak, and the meek, and the simple, and those who need help—they are first in the Kingdom of God.

And I saw that guy, that John the Baptist figure, who is standing up and saying

“There is coming a messenger, there is coming a messenger who will bring equity and justice to the poor, and to the weak, and who will stand for ’the least of these.’”

That’s the wild-haired Jew that I saw up on that stage. I saw, and felt, the same voice coming from the Bible when I read about John the Baptist, who cried out in the desert to the Pharisees, warning them that Jesus was coming, the messenger of God. And that he was coming to restore justice, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and to value ’the least of these’ when the Pharisees had failed.

And as I heard Bernie talking, and as I listened to his cries for justice, I remembered, suddenly, what Jesus had actually said in the Book of Luke, when he unravels the scroll in the synagogue, and he quotes the Book of Isaiah, which says that the Son of God was coming. And then he says, “This has been fulfilled in your presence here today.” He quotes the book of Isaiah which says that the Son of God is coming to bring justice, and Jesus says “it is now come to pass in your presence.” And he says, “I have come to bring Gospel to the poor.”

Gospel—is that word we Evangelical Christians have based everything on. Gospel means ‘good news.’ And Jesus said “I have come to bring good news to the poor.” To restore sight to the blind, to stand with the suffering, to set the captives free, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Whoa.

As I heard Bernie Sanders crying out to the religious leaders at Liberty University, in his hoarse voice, with his wild hair, this Jew, and he proclaimed justice over us. He called us to account for being complicit with those who are wealthy and those who are powerful and for abandoning the poor, ‘the least of these’ who Jesus said he had come to bring good news to.

And in that moment, something occurred to me, as I saw Bernie Sanders up there, as I watched him I realized: Bernie Sanders, for President, is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders for President is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders is Gospel for the poor.

And Jesus said, “I have come to bring Gospel—good news—to the poor.”

And lightning hit my heart in that moment. And I realized that we are Evangelical Christians, that we believe the Bible. We believe in Jesus. We absolutely shun those who attempt to find nuance and twisted and tortured interpretation of scripture that they would use to master all other broader interpretations, to find some kind of big message that they want to flout. We absolutely scorn such things.

And yet somehow, we commit to the mental gymnastics necessary that allows us to abandon ‘the least of these,’ to abandon the poor, to abandon the immigrants, to abandon those who are in prison.

I listened to Bernie Sanders, as he said he wanted to welcome the immigrants and give them dignity. As he said he wanted to care for the sick children, and mothers, and fathers, who do not have health care. As he said he wanted to decrease the amount of human beings who are corralled like cattle in the prisons. As he said he wanted to do justice for those who have nothing and live homeless.

And I remembered the words of Jesus, who warned his disciples that there will be judgment, and on that day he will look to his friends, and he will say ‘Blessed are you, for you cared for me, for I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick, and you cared for me; I was hungry, and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was in prison, and you came to visit me; I was homeless, and you gave me shelter.” And the disciples said, “Jesus, when did we do any of those things for you?”

And he said, “If you have done it for ‘the least of these,’ you have done it for me.”

And those words echoed in my heart. As I listened to that crazy, hoarse-voiced, wild-haired Jew, standing in front of the religious leaders of the Evangelical movement, calling us to account, as a Jew once did before. Telling us that he intends to care for ‘the least of these.’ To clothe the naked, to shelter the homeless, to care for the sick, to set the prisoners free.

Yes. I am an Evangelical Christian. I believe in the Bible. I follow Jesus. When I look at Bernie Sanders, and I hear the things that he’s saying, it’s like he’s ripping them out of the pages of scripture. I would have to try to avoid the meaning of those words. I would have to bury my head in the sand to continue to support conservative policies. I am religiously conservative but I am not politically so. And I think here is the heart and soul of it:

When we chose to follow Jesus, we decided that the Kingdom of God, and the men and women and children of this world, were more important than us. And that accidentally made us all liberals. The day we decided to follow Christ, and the day we decided that we value other human beings more than ourselves, we accidentally became liberals.

And so there is no contradiction between being a Bible-believing Christian and a Bernie Sanders supporter.

I follow the teachings of Christ: to care for ‘the least of these.’

And I believe that just as John the Baptist once cried out in the desert for justice, and called the religious establishment to account, and hearkened unto the day that Jesus would walk among us, and declare equity and justice and good news for the poor; and just as that day came, that Jesus stood in front of the multitudes at the religious institution and said “I have come to bring gospel to the poor,” I believe that Bernie Sanders now stands in front of us, wild-haired and hoarse-voiced, and he now declares justice for the poor. He declares good news for ‘the least of these.’

He has come to bring gospel. And I wouldn’t be much of a Christian if I didn’t stand on the side of gospel for the poor. Because the last time I checked, that’s where my master Jesus stood, and I’ll stand with him. And for now, that means I stand with Bernie Sanders.

The Vicar of Christ

and his

 Call To Arms

========================

Here’s the core message driving Pope Francis’s global revolution to save the world from “the dung of the devil,” out-of-control capitalism which will play well when he addresses Congress this month.

So it’s time for Congress to listen closely to the man in the white suit:

1. Capitalists … are new worshipers of the biblical golden calf

Pope: “Money must serve, not rule, yet we calmly accept its control over us. Money originated in a profound human crisis, the denial of the primacy of the human person. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money.”

2. Invisible hand of God … replaced by greedy hands of capitalism

Pope: “Never trust in the so-called ‘invisible hand’ of the markets and economic remedies like cutting workers to increase their profits. The world needs a better distribution of income.”

3. New Tyranny … capitalists are destroying democracy worldwide

Pope: “Ideologies increase the wealth of a minority exponentially, increasing the inequality gap, separating the most humans from the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few. A new tyranny is thus born, unilaterally and relentlessly imposing its own laws and rules.”

4. Trickle-down economics … is a total capitalist disaster

Pope: “Free market trickle-down economics causes injustice. A naïve trust in the culture of prosperity and those wielding economic power deadens society.”

5. Inequality … is the root cause of all ‘social ills’ in the world

Pope: “Inequality is the root of social ills. Help the poor, reject markets and speculation, attack the structural causes of inequality, or you will never solve the world’s problems.”

6. Consumerism … is out-of-control, destroying family/social values

Pope: “Today’s economics promotes inordinate consumption, increases inequality, damages the social fabric, increases violence and serious conflicts. Blaming the poor and poorer countries for their troubles is misplaced, solve the corruption spreading at the top.”

7. Competition … capitalist addiction to profits is killing morality

Pope: “The laws of capitalist competition, the survival of the fittest rule. The powerful feed upon the powerless, the vast majority are marginalized: No work, No opportunities. No escape. News is a two-point loss in stocks, but not the death of elderly homeless?”

8. Conservatism … encourages free destruction of natural resources

Pope: “In a world where everyone has their own subjective truth, citizens cannot develop common solutions that transcend personal ambitions. We need a new way of living and thinking that’s more humane and noble, that brings dignity to all humans on this earth.”

9. Exploitation … treating humans as mere economic commodities is sin

Pope: “Yes, humans are now consumer goods, used then discarded in our widespread throwaway culture. It is no longer about oppression and exploitation. Today, the excluded ones are no longer society’s underside, no longer even a part of it, but outcasts, leftovers.”

10. Capitalism has lost its moral compass, turned its back on God

Pope: “Behind capitalist economics lurks a rejection of ethics and God that debases humans. This lack of morality and ethics results in God calling for solutions outside marketplace economics, to make it possible for a more balanced and humane social order.”

Bottom line:

Pope Francis is now the world’s moral conscience, as well as leader of a new peoples revolution. Francis is seen by billions worldwide as a revival of the moral values missing in today’s world because of our obsessive consumerism, self-centered wealth-building, and an out-of-control capitalist ideology with no moral conscience … so Rush isn’t the only conservative going bonkers … because Pope Francis’s new commandments really are an historic game-changing challenge to the core conservative values if the Republican Party.

A New Day Arises; The Pope and the Immorality of “Cardboard Christians”

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis is insisting that his concern for the poor and critique of the global economic system isn’t some novel, communist-inspired ideology but rather the original and core “touchstone” of the Christian faith.

Some U.S. conservatives have branded the first Latin American pope a Marxist for his frequent critiques of consumerism and focus on a church “that is poor and for the poor.” But in an interview contained in a new book, Francis explains that his message is rooted in the Gospel and has been echoed by church fathers since Christianity’s first centuries.

“The Gospel does not condemn the wealthy, but the idolatry of wealth, the idolatry that makes people indifferent to the call of the poor,” Francis says in “This Economy Kills,” a study of the pope’s economic and social teachings, excerpts of which were provided Sunday to The Associated Press.

Specifically, Francis summarized a verse from the Gospel of Matthew which is the essential mission statement of his papacy:

“I was hungry, I was thirsty, I was in prison, I was sick, I was naked and you helped me, clothed me, visited me, took care of me.”

“Caring for our neighbor, for those who are poor, who suffer in body and soul, for those who are in need: this is the touchstone.

…….    Is it pauperism? No.

It is the Gospel…….”

"...I saw Lucifer fall from Heaven as Lightning..."

“…I saw Lucifer fall from Heaven as Lightning…”

He cites church fathers dating to St. Ambrose and St. John Chrysostom as expressing the same concerns, and noted somewhat wryly that if he had said the same “some would accuse me of giving a Marxist homily.”

“As we can see, this concern for the poor is in the Gospel, it is within the tradition of the church, it is not an invention of communism and it must not be turned into some ideology, as has sometimes happened before in the course of history,” an apparent reference to the Latin American-inspired liberation theology.

This Economy Kills,” by two seasoned Vatican reporters, comes out this week in Italian

Right-wing, anti-Muslim “Christians” love Pope Francis’ strong message against ISIS and religious extremism.

Alas, they missed his point entirely.

Raw Story reports that on day one of Pope Francis’ tour in Turkey, His Holiness sharply condemned ISIS’ “barbaric violence” against Christians and other non-Muslim minorities, and denounced those who use religion as an excuse to violate human rights:

“As religious leaders, we are obliged to denounce all violations against human dignity and human rights… As such, any violence which seeks religious justification warrants the strongest condemnation because the Omnipotent is the God of life and peace.”

The Blaze adds that that while Pope Francis urges leaders to explore a peace process through interfaith dialog, he also cautiously supports using force against ISIS.

Francis sought to offer a balanced message as he met with Turkish political and religious officials at the start of his second trip to the Middle East this year. He reaffirmed that military force was justified to halt the Islamic State group’s advance, and called for greater dialogue between Christians, Muslims and people of all faiths to end fundamentalism. (As narrow “literalism” )

And — NOTE TO THE US – Pope Francis adamantly opposes unilateral force:

Too many times, Francis said, countries have used the “excuse of stopping the unjust aggressor” to launch a “true war of conquest.” He adds, “One single nation cannot judge how you stop this, how you stop an unjust aggressor.”

Furthermore — unlike America’s right-wing Christians — Pope Francis does not see all Muslims as extremists and potential terrorists. In fact, Al Jazeera reports he even went to pray at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey’s capitol city.

Francis stood on Saturday morning with his head bowed and hands clasped in front of him in a two minutes of silent prayer inside the 17th-century Sultan Ahmet mosque, aiming to show respect for Islam and encourage stronger ties between the two faiths.

May God accept it,” Rahmi Yaran, the Grand Mufti of Istanbul told the pope at the end of the prayer.

And here in America, some right-wing “Christians” actually do understand that Pope Francis’ anti-ISIS message is more nuanced. They just don’t like it, as they let their followers know on Twitter.

The The Return of St. Francis

==============

The Pope at the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia

“…..Upon arrival he was welcomed by the Governor of Istanbul and by the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomaios I, and then transferred by car to the Blue Mosque, or the Mosque of the Sultan Ahmed.

Built between 1609 and 1917 by Ahmed I on what had been the site of the great palace of Constantinople, the mosque became the most important place of worship of the Ottoman Empire. The name “Blue Mosque” derives from the 21,043 turquoise ceramic tiles adorning the walls and the dome. The ceramics used to cover the walls, columns and arches originated from Iznik in ancient Nicaea, and range in colour from deep blue to green. Benedict XVI visited the mosque during his trip to Turkey in 2006.

Pope Francis was received by the Grand Mufti and remained a moment in silent prayer.

The Holy Father then proceeded to the Museum of Hagia Sophia, the basilica dedicated to Divine Wisdom, first built in the year 360 by the emperor Constantine on a site previously occupied by pagan temples.

Pope Says God Not ‘A Magician,

With A Magic Wand’

=================

     Some of the Catholic Church’s most stalwart cardinals and their congregations have now been given a rather large shock: a “sandblast of Reality”, as we used to say in the Church of Synanon. The trouble is that now the leadership of the Church will no longer be able to hide from scientific reality like children playing in a sandbox of fantasy.

Let us peruse some headlines:

“…..Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are real and God is not ‘a magician with a magic wand’ …..”

Earthshaking, for a Church that made Galileo recant the fact the earth revolves around the sun!!!

…..and there was then this….

“……In a move that could be aimed at healing a rift between science and religion, Pope Francis has said that evolution and the Big Bang are consistent with the notion of a creator. And according to the pontiff, believers should not view God as “a magician, with a magic wand…….”

Francis made the remarks at an assembly of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, billed as meeting to discuss “Evolving Concepts of Nature.”

He then goes further and says…..

“……When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis told the gathering, where he also dedicated a statue of his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

God, Francis said, “……created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment…….”

To be sure, the Catholic Church’s views on the origins of the universe and life, unlike those of many Protestant sects, have for years been largely in line with the scientific consensus. The church has long leaned toward what some describe as “theistic evolution,” i.e., a God supernaturally created the universe and life but allowed natural processes to work over billions of years.

In 1950, Pope Pius XII proclaimed that evolution was not at odds with Catholic teachings, and Pope John Paul II endorsed the view himself in 1996.

But the Pope clarified things with this statement…..

“…..The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand”, Pope Francis has declared.

Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator

– arguing instead that they “require it”.

“…….When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis said.

He added: “He created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment….”

The Facts of Genesis and Christian Fundamentalism

Many have decried the continued insistence of certain elements of the Catholic, American Southern Baptist, Pentecostal and especially Assemblies of God Churches; and many other Christian denominations in America and the world,  for cleaving to an absurd and reductionist reading of the Bible to satisfy their supposed “faith”, a faith which is nothing more than a complete ignorance of the real design of the 7 Days of the Creation of God in Genesis: and thus their further stance of even more ridiculous ideas like Jesus riding dinosaurs, and the earth being only 6,000 years old, which are their fallacious ticket to a complete and utter disassociation from truth and any relationship to reality, and gives them a real boost to the idea that climate change and the destruction of the earth, air and water are totally ‘ok’ with their “God” because “He” is in “charge” of the climate, the weather and the 4 seasons. 

So we can destroy it at will???  The pretense at logic is one lacking any premise of a rational cause and actual effect: to say the least.

Yet even the most ill-read of Christians remember that God made Adam as a caretaker and husbandman for “His Garden”, which would seem to include things not killing the flora and fauna, and polluting Eden into a toxic waste dump incapable of producing life….

What is the Truth of the 7 Days of Creation???

The facts are these: the 7 Days of Creation are 7 Eons of an Aeon, as “….in the Day that the Lord God made the Earth and the Heavens…” from Genesis 2:4. These 7 Eons were millions of years long, and are the actual enfolding of the evolutionary pattern and the development of slow and quite gradual planetary changes, involved with the production of molecular life and the environment they inhabited being formed together, as a symbiotic relationship over millions of years.

Note that it says “Day“……

The Three Great Blessings.

================================

There is little doubt that Rev. Moon was the first one to find the pattern of the three great blessings, and how the restoration of these Three Blessings was to be found at every level of the 7 levels of the providence by the 7 lords of the restoration: and conclusively.

        It would be idiotic to deny that this was actually something that each providential and central figure was doing to fulfill the will of God, since Rev. Moon shows exactly how Jacob, Abraham, Moses and others were set in doing this very thing.

The numerical evidence alone outweighs any denial: and Rev. Moon did not originate or make up these things, they are now there clearly revealed to the entire world, or at least to those now or formerly in the Unification Church, and lastly myself, as one who learned how to read at an early age.

      

Islam was denied their true status as the Second Israel in Rev. Moons book "Divine Principle". Infact they are not even mentioned as having any bearing on the Providence at all.

Islam was denied their true status as the Second Israel in Rev. Moons book “Divine Principle”. In fact they are not even mentioned as having any bearing on the Providence at all.

       Starting at about page 351 of the black book we have Rev. Moon’s exposition of the 3 great temptations in the correspondent course of the pattern of these 3 great blessing in an exact parallel, showing how Jesus restores these blessings in his 40 day course in the Wilderness at the global level.

        This makes perfect sense until Mr. Moon says my Father was a failure who was crucified in the position of John the Baptist and who did not even resurrect in his flesh and bone, as Jesus conclusively states and says to Doubting Thomas in the Gospel, but for Rev. Moon the Gospel can be dispensed with; and for those who are truly wise like himself we must aver that Jesus was just a “spirit” after his resurrection, wandering now as a ghost transcendent of “space and time”, who could even appear in locked rooms and was therefore not in a physical body because that would be IMPOSSIBLE: according to Rev. Moon.

      Rev. Moon then says my Father Jesus died without performing any of the duties of the Messiah ( forgetting Palm Sunday, when he entered Zion in Glory with Lazarus who he raised from the dead, in the position of John the Baptists dead body, fulfilled the Scripture as Christ the Lord in Zechariah, beyond the shadow of a doubt ) and then Mr. Moon leaves the Gospel of Christ with Korean punctuality as soon as it suited him: which was immediately after 1960 when he said he was the Lamb and that he had fulfilled all of the scripture and that Bo Hui Pak was then John the Baptist and….well……we know what happened next at Yankee Stadium in 1976 when it went so terribly, terribly wrong.

         But the three great blessings of “ ( 1) be fruitful, ( 2) multiply, ( 3), subdue the earth and have dominion”; were clearly pointed out as being what the pattern was when the devil asked Jesus to turn stone into bread ( as being fruitful in attaining the powers of Adam or “son of God”), and then to throw himself down ( as the angels would catch him because he was “the son of God” ), and then to worship him and be given the whole earth as the dominion ( because then he would have dominion as the “son of God” )

        Rev. Moon clearly stated that Jesus overcame the devil and that the three great blessings were then restored in this exact pattern: but then, we have a problem: this is not the version we see in Luke.

       The version we see in Luke is different, and the terminology and the tone are completely different as well. If one is wrong then the other is right: but Rev. Moon showed that Matthew was the exact pattern of the 3 Blessings restored; so now we have some flawed human scribe called Luke who got it all wrong and we can move one: right?

       No.. Not at all.

If you look carefully at the order of the temptations as written in Luke you will see it was:

Turn ‘stone into bread’ as the first temptation:

Ordered to ‘fall down and worship me’ as the second,

and then it says he was taken to the pinnacle of the Temple:

and then told, ‘throw yourself down’. 

So: why is the order different in Matthew and Luke???  Because of two figures who were to come 2,000 years later: one put in the position of Joseph, who picked 4-18 as True Parents Day, and one as the “Son of Joseph”…..put in the position of Ephraim; born on 4-18, as “….a Day in which he ( our Joseph) looketh not for him”…. for his Lord to return. In this sense….the Child of the True Parents….spiritually.

As my Father Jesus said “…..Who receiveth whomsoever I send: receiveth me.

      

The Cross of Jerusalem; when the City of St. Francis became the New Mecca; as Mecca had once become the New Jerusalem: even as Jerusalem was the New Salem...this is my City Not Forsakenthat as the Third Israel's "New Jerusalem"

The Cross of Jerusalem; when the City of St. Francis became the New Mecca; as Mecca had once become the New Jerusalem: even as Jerusalem was the New Salem…this is my City Not Forsakenthat as the Third Israel’s “New Jerusalem”

       

We can’t. And we can’t because this was meant to be this way, for the one who would take the road of Joseph, who becomes the one called “the faithful and wise steward / servant” of Luke and Matthew, and for the Son of Joseph, who is unknown: but is the Lost Sheep of the house of Israel. 

 

The Prodigal Son: Solomon.

       But this Solomon is the one who built the 3 altars on the Mount of Olives to the Triple Goddess, one for Ashtoreth, one for Molech and one for the goddess Milcom….but the one for the daughter of Pharaoh was the worst,  for which it can now can be revealed that this was the real reason that my Father Jesus prayed 3 times to God that the Cup of Death would pass from him at Gethsemane: and now you will know why that happened.

       The one that my Father Jesus was really fighting with in the wilderness for that 40 days: the one who had sold himself to the Devil and been given all the kingdoms of the earth long before Jesus ever walked in Galilee: that fallen one was Solomon.

       Solomon, Apollyon, the black sheep; the one lost of the 100 was the lost sheep, as that one who had to be restored of the 99 to once again have the 100. This is why my Father said.

      “…For the son of man has come to seek and to save that which was lost..”

        He wasn’t talking about mankind itself in a generality: he was specifically referring to Solomon, the prodigal son of David, who had fallen into the clutches of the devil and who which the 10 tribes had also then followed into the abyss as well, because Solomon dragged them down with him. The 12 tribes were separated and the 10 of the Northern Tribes were given to Rehoboam, as of when the garment he wore was ripped into 12 pieces by the prophet, and 10 pieces given to him due to Solomon having fallen….and when Solomon died Rehoboam came back from hiding in Egypt….thus the division once again of the ten and the two….as seen with the ten sons of Jacob with Leah…as opposed to the two from Rachel, Joseph and Benjamin…

       That is why the garment that had been that of the king was ripped into 12 pieces by the prophet and the ten were lost, as the 10 tribes were soon to become lost; and only two pieces remained, which were all of the kingdom of  Judah remaining.

        This is why, although few know the reason why this is written in the Old Testament.

        I do.

       Solomon was he who feared Death more than God, and who sold himself to Satan the Devil and became Apollo, the one that Zeus, or Azazyel, the fallen Strength of God, who was the Archangel in Paradise, called the god of the sun: Apollo, the last of the gods. The one who gained the whole earth: but lost his soul.

“For all the evil under the sun” That was the refrain of Solomon: but none knew why.

      Until now.

      If you look at the order of the temptations in Luke you will see it was: stone into bread: fall down and worship me, and then; he was taken to the pinnacle of the Temple: and then told, throw yourself down.

    

The Malediction of Rev. Moon and the Invasion of Satan in the Dajjals' son; Osama, the Son of Laden; the One-eyed Dajjal from Yemen; the poor bricklayer Laden with the "Evil Eye" who became a billionaire....and had 12 sons...

The Malediction of Rev. Moon and the Invasion of Satan in the Dajjals’ son; Osama, the Son of Laden; the One-eyed Dajjal from Yemen; the poor bricklayer Laden with the “Evil Eye” who became a billionaire….and had 12 sons…

      But this order of temptations does not match the pattern of the three great blessings.

But it does match one, the one in which Solomon fell when he was tempted the three times: and fell at the first one with the mark on the hand; commanding the fallen angels with the ring for sorcery, and then the second, with the mark on the forehead for worshipping the dragon and to be able to disappear anytime he desired with the cloak of invisibility, and then the third, to be given the power to “go between”, and appear anywhere he desired on earth which was that of the winged shoes of his fallen dominion:; as ruling over the invisible realms of the jinn or spirits in the 3 lower heavens above the earth and the 3 upper hells below it with the djinn:  becoming that Angel of the Abyss, the King of his, and then others ‘Self Destruction”….Apollyon…otherwise known as “Apollo”, the last of the gods…as of “the sun”. of which Solomon wrote of all that was “…under the sun..”

      There are then three Solomon’s, the younger one, as we see in the Song of Songs, where he finds the female aspect of the soul in his kingship, and then the middle-aged vision of the wise but cynical king in Proverbs, and then at the end, the bitter and skeptically adrift king, in Ecclesiastes.

But it was in his old age that Solomon began to seek how to circumvent his coming death, as the Devil had by that time convinced him that nothing of life would be his portion but the grave; annihilation, in short. Solomon did not believe in resurrection…for him Death was final…and everlasting….

The Bride, the Lamb's Wife is the Virgin Daughter of Light, the Daughter of Allah

The Bride, the Lamb’s Wife is the Virgin Daughter of Light, the Daughter of Allah

     The Word in its letter is death: in the stark utterances of Moses and others Solomon interpreted the texts with a more and more concrete literalism; the vision we finally see in Ecclesiastes: no possibility of resurrection, and no place after life but the grave. Man and the beast both have the same life; and are the same in sharing equally the same death.

       The question is then this; who destroyed Solomon? His own shadow, materialism, Midas.

        The 666 talents of gold that we see Solomon collect is in I Kings 10:14, in “one year”.

This “Midas touch” was of his own spiritual materialism, the “daughter” turned to gold in the mth of Midas is the “soul” Solomon lost by selling his soul to the Devil and worshipping him to be given dominion over the earth.

       This is Apollo, rational delusion as Apollyon: self-destruction, the nemesis of Solomon: he who fell in love with his own life or soul, loving only his own life itself, as they of the Northern Kingdom who fell in love with themselves as seen in the myth of Narcissus, the silly dove of Ephraim, in love with their own vain image of themselves: the internal imagination created of their idolization of themselves. Thus the rose suspended over the Abyss is Solomon in love with his own reflection or soul; but it is this very thing that he loses by trying to hold onto it above all else.

       So who does the devil worship?

       Himself.

The Cain and Abel of Korea; Kim Il Sung and Sun Myung Moon

The Cain and Abel of Korea; Kim Il Sung and Sun Myung Moon

      Solomon destroyed himself, he was his own worst enemy, like David was with Bathsheba, but this happened because his fear of Death and the thought that there was nothing after this life but the grave was able to be so pressed into his mind by Satan that he sold himself to continue his existence at any cost, although he thought he had made the best of a bad situation in the bargain for his terms.

        He worshipped Satan upon the Mercyseat of the Ark that Moses had had Bezaleel build, and Solomon had then had brought into the very Temple he had built. But he ruined his own ideal.

        Sensual lust was only part of it, the rest was the desire for immortality at any cost.

        Thus he traded the Ark for his own life, or so he thought.

       And that is when it vanished: right to Baal Hermon, the White Mountain at the northernmost boundary of Israel, the real ‘Olympus’ where the third of the host of the angels came down, and took wives of the daughters of men.

It’s other name????  Mount Sion…..

        And now we shall have a little voyage of discovery. It’s very much like the yacht called New Hope that Rev. Moon used to sail around on: except that the reason that I was brought out from San Francisco after it fell: to start over in New Hope; is the same reason that it was said that the coming of the Son of Man would be as when Lot was led out of Sodom after it was judged; to start a new family in Zoar.

         As I said, the full story was the one I decided to tell you right from the start, a partial or incomplete explanation at this point would be worse than none at all.

         Right now it is you, my friend, who represent the Last Hope of the Unification Church. My friend Glenn Emery is considered a pariah, as he left the Church and took back the Blessing Rev. Moon stole from My Generation, though they don’t know it,, and I am not even considered to be anyone of account by the inverse racism due to the Korean bias, that bias being as of the fact I am not a Korean.

         

"...then look up; for your Redemption draweth nigh..."

“…then look up; for your Redemption draweth nigh…”

          There is little doubt that you placed high in the estimation of those you served because they saw something in you they decided to reward. But my servant John knows the real reason of your reward: and now both he and my Father Jesus have brought things to this pass so that you will have a real choice; not a fake one.

           Amen, and so be it.

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

Matthew 25:31-46 King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

=========================================

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand,

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

 

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

 

4And the King shall answer and say unto them,

“Verily I say unto you,

Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

==============================================================

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand,

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

 

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,

Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

 

45 Then shall he answer them, saying,

“..Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me…”

46 And these ( the goats at the left hand ) shall go away into everlasting punishment:

but the righteous ( the sheep at the right hand ) into life eternal.

A Comparison: Then and Now: 2016 and 2019

Over the last few years I have watched as the Independent Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has been viciously attacked, his personal beliefs and spiritual concerns questioned and denigrated; as well as hearing him be described by Alex Jones and others like Thomas Hartmann as a “crazy communist”, or an amoral and ideologically bankrupt Marxist Jew who wants; in the mocking venomous words of Hillary Clinton; “…to give everyone a free pony..“, all because he dares to state that America should give healthcare to all of it’s people as a human right; just like every other developed and industrialized nation on earth already does.

During his presidential run in 2016 I watched in horror as Sanders character was continually smeared by the bought-and-paid-for Establishment Press as worthless, and others of the dead-on-it’s-feet National Enquirer school of Rabid Yellow Journalism as witless; that is all that remains of the Fourth Estate now almost totally defunct in America, due to its incremental silent takeover by the CIA, ( with an able assist by President Bill Clinton ), and put straight into the corrupt hands of 6 men cravenly bent on subverting free speech as plutocratic betrayers of the Public Trust and treasonous Guardians of the Public Weal, abandoning all principle to uphold as sacred all that was established in the 1st Amendment; as the craven and corporatist owners of virtually all Media and it’s outlets in the US.

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

FDR and Bernie on the Same Page

FDR’s proposed second Bill of Rights that was filmed after he delivered his State of the Union Address via radio on January 11, 1944.

That FDR wanted to establish and give us these four basic rights shows what was supposed to come later on with Bernie Sanders, who then walked forward in the shoes of Dr. King, in setting up these Four Universal Rights in what would have become the foundation for saving not just America, but the entire world.

By passing these four amendments to the Constitution by all 50 states here in America as Bernie Sanders is planning, or as close to unanimous as it can get, America will set up the condition to remove the fallen nature at the Universal Level ( as of “the Kingdom of Heaven and Earth” ), having already been able to accomplish it at the global level with Bernie Sanders still standing, and even now still remaining vigilant at the altar of Elijah, we paid the indemnification of Justice Restored by denying her Highness Queen Jezebel/ Madame Hillary we fed all the people to be filled with Righteousness, for having not voted for Hillary Clinton on Principle, even though that guaranteed the Ascension of Donald Trump to the Presidency, and made us as a Nation endure great tribulation and suffering by Trump.

President Trump is the Image of the Beast that CNN created to be Hillary’s Paper Tiger, but who now stands as the American Kaiser for the Second Civil War of Dr. Pieczenik’s Neo Confederacy, the Dream of the late Senators Robert Byrd and Jesse Helms, as the establishment of the now Imperial White Supremacist House of Trump and the KKK, with their point man Steve Bannon recently  fired from his position as the National Security Adviser of Donald Trump; as having been the Official Ideological Enforcer of National Racism and the Aryan philosophy of White Supremacy

He lost his job at the White House due to the debacle of how he orchestrated the Trump-fest of the Neo Nazis at Charlottesville, Virginia.

…………..Alan Greenspan speaks of the Economic Dictatorship of the Corporate Fascists like Donald Trump that Theodore Roszak predicted; almost word-for-word ……….40 years earlier….

America now being directly under attack by Satan with the Economic Dictatorship of the Corporate Fascists s quite obvious

But Sanders in his Cry for Justice resonating across America that has now brought us the shared condition of indemnity in 2019 by which we might at this point reverse the entire process: namely with Strength through Diversity (“Out of Many: One”) as our United National Sacrifice of Blood, Sweat, and Tears, set into motion by My Generation and put forward  by their Spiritual Progeny the Millennials; to thus win the battle in 2020, thus setting up the Foundation of Salvation in America for the Great Work Accomplished, or “Standard Become“, to manifest Global Salvation at the Cosmic Level, setting up the final Victory with the Return of my Father Jesus, who will then Initiate the Creation of a New Heaven and a New Earth

==========================

Speaking at Liberty University today, Sept 14th 2015

==========================

“….I am not a theologian, I am not an expert on the Bible, nor am I a Catholic. I am just a United States senator from the small state of Vermont. But I agree with Pope Francis, who will soon be coming to visit us in the United States.

I agree with Pope Francis when he says, and I quote,

“The current financial crisis originated in a profound human crisis, the denial of the primacy of the human person,” and this is what he writes: “We have created new idols. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money and the dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose,” end of quote.

And the pope also writes, quote,

“There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone. Money has to serve, not to rule,” end of quote.

Now those are pretty profound words, which I hope we will all think about. In the pope’s view, and I agree with him, we are living in a nation and in a world, and the Bible speaks to this issue, in a nation and in a world which worships not love of brothers and sisters, not love of the poor and the sick, but worships the acquisition of money and great wealth. I do not believe that is the country we should be living in.

Money and wealth should serve the people. The people should not have to serve money and wealth. (APPLAUSE)…..”

Jim the Evangelist bears Witness from that Night

Hi my name is Jim. I am the guy who recently posted onto Reddit under the Sanders4President Subreddit that I’m a Liberty University Alumni, and that I support Bernie, and think that he’s a good spokesman for justice.

I thought I would take a second to, sort of, unpack that, because I could tell there’s a lot of people, both Evangelical conservative folk and more liberal Bernie-supporting folk, who are very confused that I could occupy both worlds. So, I thought, I’ll take a few seconds and explain myself, and maybe that will be helpful for the conversation.

So a little bit about me. I am not a current student at Liberty. If I was, I actually wouldn’t have been able to post onto that Reddit board and say that I’m supporting Bernie. There is an Honor Code at Liberty University, and while it’s not always enforced, if you support a candidate who is pro-choice or pro-gay marriage, you can be punished by the University, up to and including expulsion from the school. So as a graduate of Liberty University, I’m in a good position to represent folks that might go there and people from the Evangelical tradition, but not be within the world that they can, you know, punish me for my opinion.

So I got my Bachelors degree in Religion from Liberty University, and I also got my Masters degree from Liberty University in Marriage and Family Therapy. In 2004 I worked for the George W. Bush campaign. I spent about 8 years as a Conservative pastor. And also as a schoolteacher at a conservative Christian academy. And today I serve my community as a therapist and also a pastoral counselor, somebody that folks from churches might go see to get counseling whenever they want to see somebody who’s both a clinical counselor but also a pastor.

So I serve all those roles. I think I’m pretty much a card-carrying Evangelical Christian. I still subscribe to a conservative evangelical theology. And what that means, a lot of people get confused when they hear the word ‘conservative,’ they assume you mean politically. ‘Conservative theology’ means that I believe the Bible is trustworthy, I think that God inspired it, Jesus was absolutely real, and really died on the cross, and really did resurrect three days later; and I am an Evangelical Christian in that way.

So, how did I come to find myself supporting Bernie Sanders? How did that evolution take place? How could it be that in 2004 I was working for the George W. Bush campaign, and today in 2015, as a double Liberty University graduate, under Jerry Falwell—when I went to school, Jerry Falwell was the Chancellor—how is it that I could be now supporting Bernie Sanders, who’s a very progressive, very liberal guy; he describes himself as a ‘democratic socialist.’ How do I find common ground on those two things?

Well a lot of people I think falsely believe that in order to do that you have to give up one of your sides. Either you have to not really be a progressive, and you’re just an Evangelical who just likes Bernie, or you have to not really be an Evangelical, and just secretly be a Progressive who’s faking it and pretending to be an Evangelical, but wouldn’t actually pass the litmus test of being an Evangelical.

I pass both tests, I am very much 100% legitimate in both camps, and I want to explain why that’s not a mythological thing, that’s not a disconnect. Some people call that a contradiction, or hypocrisy, it is absolutely not. I believe that my views are 100% consistent. And so I think that the shock value for that comes in beginning to appreciate that the Bible and Jesus, in my opinion and in my very moderate reading of the Bible and the words of Christ, leads us to a Progressive worldview.

And that is shocking to a lot of people, especially folks back home in the Evangelical community, they hear that and go, “What are you talking about? That’s heresy—”… it’s like, hold on. Hear me out. There is a Biblical argument for voting for Bernie Sanders, believe it or not, and I’m gonna walk you through it really quick on some key issues.

So that first issue that I’d kind of point your attention to is kind of what Bernie brought up during his speech at Liberty. Basically, the wealth inequality problem—and see a lot of us, on the Evangelical side think that what Jesus really cares about is gay marriage and abortion. And of course, the great irony is if you read the red letters of Jesus, there are no statements on abortion. There are no statements on gay marriage. Now, that’s not to say the Bible doesn’t speak about these things, but it certainly is to say that Jesus, founder and master of our faith, did not see fit to make these high-priority topics. It’s not to say he doesn’t care. But it is to say that we need to be careful not to ‘major on minors.’ We should be focused on the things Jesus did talk about.

So what did Jesus talk about?

So here’s the interesting thing. When I was watching Bernie Sanders talk at Liberty University, I was just really shocked, and something kind of magical happened for me, because as I watched that guy stand up on that stage, here’s what I saw. I saw a wild-haired Jew crying out in a hoarse voice, in a very forceful and forth-speaking way, he was convicting the Christian leaders and religious leaders in that University and calling us out for being complicit in the abandonment of those who suffer:

“The least of these.”

And siding with the powerful and the rich and the masters of this world.

And he was convicting us, and calling us out. And we scorned him, and we stared him down, and with sour faces we thought, “Who is this whacko? And why do all these people seem to follow him, seem to like him? This wild-haired Jew, crying out from the wilderness of the political Left, in his hoarse voice?”

And if you’re an Evangelical listening to me today, you already know where I’m going with this. When I heard Bernie speaking in that way, when I saw that guy on stage at Liberty University, I saw John the Baptist.

I saw the wild-haired, roughly-clothed John the Baptist, eating honey and wearing camel’s hair, and crying out to the religious leaders, the Pharisees of his day, calling them corrupt and complicit with those who have all the power and all the money and all the wealth, and for abandoning the people that God loves, that God cares about. For the Pharisees, who were siding with those who already have power and wealth and saying that they will be the last in the Kingdom of God, and that the weak, and the meek, and the simple, and those who need help—they are first in the Kingdom of God.

And I saw that guy, that John the Baptist figure, who is standing up and saying

“There is coming a messenger, there is coming a messenger who will bring equity and justice to the poor, and to the weak, and who will stand for ’the least of these.’”

That’s the wild-haired Jew that I saw up on that stage. I saw, and felt, the same voice coming from the Bible when I read about John the Baptist, who cried out in the desert to the Pharisees, warning them that Jesus was coming, the messenger of God. And that he was coming to restore justice, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and to value ’the least of these’ when the Pharisees had failed.

And as I heard Bernie talking, and as I listened to his cries for justice, I remembered, suddenly, what Jesus had actually said in the Book of Luke, when he unravels the scroll in the synagogue, and he quotes the Book of Isaiah, which says that the Son of God was coming. And then he says, “This has been fulfilled in your presence here today.” He quotes the book of Isaiah which says that the Son of God is coming to bring justice, and Jesus says “it is now come to pass in your presence.” And he says, “I have come to bring Gospel to the poor.”

Gospel—is that word we Evangelical Christians have based everything on. Gospel means ‘good news.’ And Jesus said “I have come to bring good news to the poor.” To restore sight to the blind, to stand with the suffering, to set the captives free, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Whoa.

As I heard Bernie Sanders crying out to the religious leaders at Liberty University, in his hoarse voice, with his wild hair, this Jew, and he proclaimed justice over us. He called us to account for being complicit with those who are wealthy and those who are powerful and for abandoning the poor, ‘the least of these’ who Jesus said he had come to bring good news to.

And in that moment, something occurred to me, as I saw Bernie Sanders up there, as I watched him I realized: Bernie Sanders, for President, is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders for President is good news for the poor. Bernie Sanders is Gospel for the poor.

And Jesus said, “I have come to bring Gospel—good news—to the poor.”

And lightning hit my heart in that moment. And I realized that we are Evangelical Christians, that we believe the Bible. We believe in Jesus. We absolutely shun those who attempt to find nuance and twisted and tortured interpretation of scripture that they would use to master all other broader interpretations, to find some kind of big message that they want to flout. We absolutely scorn such things.

And yet somehow, we commit to the mental gymnastics necessary that allows us to abandon ‘the least of these,’ to abandon the poor, to abandon the immigrants, to abandon those who are in prison.

I listened to Bernie Sanders, as he said he wanted to welcome the immigrants and give them dignity. As he said he wanted to care for the sick children, and mothers, and fathers, who do not have health care. As he said he wanted to decrease the amount of human beings who are corralled like cattle in the prisons. As he said he wanted to do justice for those who have nothing and live homeless.

And I remembered the words of Jesus, who warned his disciples that there will be judgment, and on that day he will look to his friends, and he will say ‘Blessed are you, for you cared for me, for I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick, and you cared for me; I was hungry, and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was in prison, and you came to visit me; I was homeless, and you gave me shelter.” And the disciples said, “Jesus, when did we do any of those things for you?”

And he said, “If you have done it for ‘the least of these,’ you have done it for me.”

And those words echoed in my heart. As I listened to that crazy, hoarse-voiced, wild-haired Jew, standing in front of the religious leaders of the Evangelical movement, calling us to account, as a Jew once did before. Telling us that he intends to care for ‘the least of these.’ To clothe the naked, to shelter the homeless, to care for the sick, to set the prisoners free.

Yes. I am an Evangelical Christian. I believe in the Bible. I follow Jesus. When I look at Bernie Sanders, and I hear the things that he’s saying, it’s like he’s ripping them out of the pages of scripture. I would have to try to avoid the meaning of those words. I would have to bury my head in the sand to continue to support conservative policies. I am religiously conservative but I am not politically so. And I think here is the heart and soul of it:

When we chose to follow Jesus, we decided that the Kingdom of God, and the men and women and children of this world, were more important than us. And that accidentally made us all liberals. The day we decided to follow Christ, and the day we decided that we value other human beings more than ourselves, we accidentally became liberals.

And so there is no contradiction between being a Bible-believing Christian and a Bernie Sanders supporter.

I follow the teachings of Christ: to care for ‘the least of these.’

And I believe that just as John the Baptist once cried out in the desert for justice, and called the religious establishment to account, and hearkened unto the day that Jesus would walk among us, and declare equity and justice and good news for the poor; and just as that day came, that Jesus stood in front of the multitudes at the religious institution and said “I have come to bring gospel to the poor,” I believe that Bernie Sanders now stands in front of us, wild-haired and hoarse-voiced, and he now declares justice for the poor. He declares good news for ‘the least of these.’

He has come to bring gospel. And I wouldn’t be much of a Christian if I didn’t stand on the side of gospel for the poor. Because the last time I checked, that’s where my master Jesus stood, and I’ll stand with him. And for now, that means I stand with Bernie Sanders.

The Vicar of Christ

and his

 Call To Arms

========================

Here’s the core message driving Pope Francis’s global revolution to save the world from “the dung of the devil,” out-of-control capitalism which will play well when he addresses Congress this month.

So it’s time for Congress to listen closely to the man in the white suit:

1. Capitalists … are new worshipers of the biblical golden calf

Pope: “Money must serve, not rule, yet we calmly accept its control over us. Money originated in a profound human crisis, the denial of the primacy of the human person. The worship of the ancient golden calf has returned in a new and ruthless guise in the idolatry of money.”

2. Invisible hand of God … replaced by greedy hands of capitalism

Pope: “Never trust in the so-called ‘invisible hand’ of the markets and economic remedies like cutting workers to increase their profits. The world needs a better distribution of income.”

3. New Tyranny … capitalists are destroying democracy worldwide

Pope: “Ideologies increase the wealth of a minority exponentially, increasing the inequality gap, separating the most humans from the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few. A new tyranny is thus born, unilaterally and relentlessly imposing its own laws and rules.”

4. Trickle-down economics … is a total capitalist disaster

Pope: “Free market trickle-down economics causes injustice. A naïve trust in the culture of prosperity and those wielding economic power deadens society.”

5. Inequality … is the root cause of all ‘social ills’ in the world

Pope: “Inequality is the root of social ills. Help the poor, reject markets and speculation, attack the structural causes of inequality, or you will never solve the world’s problems.”

6. Consumerism … is out-of-control, destroying family/social values

Pope: “Today’s economics promotes inordinate consumption, increases inequality, damages the social fabric, increases violence and serious conflicts. Blaming the poor and poorer countries for their troubles is misplaced, solve the corruption spreading at the top.”

7. Competition … capitalist addiction to profits is killing morality

Pope: “The laws of capitalist competition, the survival of the fittest rule. The powerful feed upon the powerless, the vast majority are marginalized: No work, No opportunities. No escape. News is a two-point loss in stocks, but not the death of elderly homeless?”

8. Conservatism … encourages free destruction of natural resources

Pope: “In a world where everyone has their own subjective truth, citizens cannot develop common solutions that transcend personal ambitions. We need a new way of living and thinking that’s more humane and noble, that brings dignity to all humans on this earth.”

9. Exploitation … treating humans as mere economic commodities is sin

Pope: “Yes, humans are now consumer goods, used then discarded in our widespread throwaway culture. It is no longer about oppression and exploitation. Today, the excluded ones are no longer society’s underside, no longer even a part of it, but outcasts, leftovers.”

10. Capitalism has lost its moral compass, turned its back on God

Pope: “Behind capitalist economics lurks a rejection of ethics and God that debases humans. This lack of morality and ethics results in God calling for solutions outside marketplace economics, to make it possible for a more balanced and humane social order.”

Bottom line:

Pope Francis is now the world’s moral conscience, as well as leader of a new peoples revolution. Francis is seen by billions worldwide as a revival of the moral values missing in today’s world because of our obsessive consumerism, self-centered wealth-building, and an out-of-control capitalist ideology with no moral conscience … so Rush isn’t the only conservative going bonkers … because Pope Francis’s new commandments really are an historic game-changing challenge to the core conservative values if the Republican Party.

A New Day Arises; The Pope and the Immorality of “Cardboard Christians”

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis is insisting that his concern for the poor and critique of the global economic system isn’t some novel, communist-inspired ideology but rather the original and core “touchstone” of the Christian faith.

Some U.S. conservatives have branded the first Latin American pope a Marxist for his frequent critiques of consumerism and focus on a church “that is poor and for the poor.” But in an interview contained in a new book, Francis explains that his message is rooted in the Gospel and has been echoed by church fathers since Christianity’s first centuries.

“The Gospel does not condemn the wealthy, but the idolatry of wealth, the idolatry that makes people indifferent to the call of the poor,” Francis says in “This Economy Kills,” a study of the pope’s economic and social teachings, excerpts of which were provided Sunday to The Associated Press.

Specifically, Francis summarized a verse from the Gospel of Matthew which is the essential mission statement of his papacy:

“I was hungry, I was thirsty, I was in prison, I was sick, I was naked and you helped me, clothed me, visited me, took care of me.”

“Caring for our neighbor, for those who are poor, who suffer in body and soul, for those who are in need: this is the touchstone.

…….    Is it pauperism? No.

It is the Gospel…….”

"...I saw Lucifer fall from Heaven as Lightning..."

“…I saw Lucifer fall from Heaven as Lightning…”

He cites church fathers dating to St. Ambrose and St. John Chrysostom as expressing the same concerns, and noted somewhat wryly that if he had said the same “some would accuse me of giving a Marxist homily.”

“As we can see, this concern for the poor is in the Gospel, it is within the tradition of the church, it is not an invention of communism and it must not be turned into some ideology, as has sometimes happened before in the course of history,” an apparent reference to the Latin American-inspired liberation theology.

This Economy Kills,” by two seasoned Vatican reporters, comes out this week in Italian

Right-wing, anti-Muslim “Christians” love Pope Francis’ strong message against ISIS and religious extremism.

Alas, they missed his point entirely.

Raw Story reports that on day one of Pope Francis’ tour in Turkey, His Holiness sharply condemned ISIS’ “barbaric violence” against Christians and other non-Muslim minorities, and denounced those who use religion as an excuse to violate human rights:

“As religious leaders, we are obliged to denounce all violations against human dignity and human rights… As such, any violence which seeks religious justification warrants the strongest condemnation because the Omnipotent is the God of life and peace.”

The Blaze adds that that while Pope Francis urges leaders to explore a peace process through interfaith dialog, he also cautiously supports using force against ISIS.

Francis sought to offer a balanced message as he met with Turkish political and religious officials at the start of his second trip to the Middle East this year. He reaffirmed that military force was justified to halt the Islamic State group’s advance, and called for greater dialogue between Christians, Muslims and people of all faiths to end fundamentalism. (As narrow “literalism” )

And — NOTE TO THE US – Pope Francis adamantly opposes unilateral force:

Too many times, Francis said, countries have used the “excuse of stopping the unjust aggressor” to launch a “true war of conquest.” He adds, “One single nation cannot judge how you stop this, how you stop an unjust aggressor.”

Furthermore — unlike America’s right-wing Christians — Pope Francis does not see all Muslims as extremists and potential terrorists. In fact, Al Jazeera reports he even went to pray at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey’s capitol city.

Francis stood on Saturday morning with his head bowed and hands clasped in front of him in a two minutes of silent prayer inside the 17th-century Sultan Ahmet mosque, aiming to show respect for Islam and encourage stronger ties between the two faiths.

May God accept it,” Rahmi Yaran, the Grand Mufti of Istanbul told the pope at the end of the prayer.

And here in America, some right-wing “Christians” actually do understand that Pope Francis’ anti-ISIS message is more nuanced. They just don’t like it, as they let their followers know on Twitter.

The The Return of St. Francis

==============

The Pope at the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia

“…..Upon arrival he was welcomed by the Governor of Istanbul and by the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomaios I, and then transferred by car to the Blue Mosque, or the Mosque of the Sultan Ahmed.

Built between 1609 and 1917 by Ahmed I on what had been the site of the great palace of Constantinople, the mosque became the most important place of worship of the Ottoman Empire. The name “Blue Mosque” derives from the 21,043 turquoise ceramic tiles adorning the walls and the dome. The ceramics used to cover the walls, columns and arches originated from Iznik in ancient Nicaea, and range in colour from deep blue to green. Benedict XVI visited the mosque during his trip to Turkey in 2006.

Pope Francis was received by the Grand Mufti and remained a moment in silent prayer.

The Holy Father then proceeded to the Museum of Hagia Sophia, the basilica dedicated to Divine Wisdom, first built in the year 360 by the emperor Constantine on a site previously occupied by pagan temples.

Pope Says God Not ‘A Magician,

With A Magic Wand’

=================

     Some of the Catholic Church’s most stalwart cardinals and their congregations have now been given a rather large shock: a “sandblast of Reality”, as we used to say in the Church of Synanon. The trouble is that now the leadership of the Church will no longer be able to hide from scientific reality like children playing in a sandbox of fantasy.

Let us peruse some headlines:

“…..Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are real and God is not ‘a magician with a magic wand’ …..”

Earthshaking, for a Church that made Galileo recant the fact the earth revolves around the sun!!!

…..and there was then this….

“……In a move that could be aimed at healing a rift between science and religion, Pope Francis has said that evolution and the Big Bang are consistent with the notion of a creator. And according to the pontiff, believers should not view God as “a magician, with a magic wand…….”

Francis made the remarks at an assembly of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, billed as meeting to discuss “Evolving Concepts of Nature.”

He then goes further and says…..

“……When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis told the gathering, where he also dedicated a statue of his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

God, Francis said, “……created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment…….”

To be sure, the Catholic Church’s views on the origins of the universe and life, unlike those of many Protestant sects, have for years been largely in line with the scientific consensus. The church has long leaned toward what some describe as “theistic evolution,” i.e., a God supernaturally created the universe and life but allowed natural processes to work over billions of years.

In 1950, Pope Pius XII proclaimed that evolution was not at odds with Catholic teachings, and Pope John Paul II endorsed the view himself in 1996.

But the Pope clarified things with this statement…..

“…..The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand”, Pope Francis has declared.

Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI.

Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator

– arguing instead that they “require it”.

“…….When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis said.

He added: “He created human beings and let them develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one so they would reach their fulfillment….”

The Facts of Genesis and Christian Fundamentalism

Many have decried the continued insistence of certain elements of the Catholic, American Southern Baptist, Pentecostal and especially Assemblies of God Churches; and many other Christian denominations in America and the world,  for cleaving to an absurd and reductionist reading of the Bible to satisfy their supposed “faith”, a faith which is nothing more than a complete ignorance of the real design of the 7 Days of the Creation of God in Genesis: and thus their further stance of even more ridiculous ideas like Jesus riding dinosaurs, and the earth being only 6,000 years old, which are their fallacious ticket to a complete and utter disassociation from truth and any relationship to reality, and gives them a real boost to the idea that climate change and the destruction of the earth, air and water are totally ‘ok’ with their “God” because “He” is in “charge” of the climate, the weather and the 4 seasons. 

So we can destroy it at will???  The pretense at logic is one lacking any premise of a rational cause and actual effect: to say the least.

Yet even the most ill-read of Christians remember that God made Adam as a caretaker and husbandman for “His Garden”, which would seem to include things not killing the flora and fauna, and polluting Eden into a toxic waste dump incapable of producing life….

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life

What is the Truth of the 7 Days of Creation???

The facts are these: the 7 Days of Creation are 7 Eons of an Aeon, as “….in the Day that the Lord God made the Earth and the Heavens…” from Genesis 2:4. These 7 Eons were millions of years long, and are the actual enfolding of the evolutionary pattern and the development of slow and quite gradual planetary changes, involved with the production of molecular life and the environment they inhabited being formed together, as a symbiotic relationship over millions of years.

The Three Great Blessings.

================================

There is little doubt that Rev. Moon was the first one to find the pattern of the three great blessings, and how the restoration of these Three Blessings was to be found at every level of the 7 levels of the providence by the 7 lords of the restoration: and conclusively.

        It would be idiotic to deny that this was actually something that each providential and central figure was doing to fulfill the will of God, since Rev. Moon shows exactly how Jacob, Abraham, Moses and others were set in doing this very thing.

The numerical evidence alone outweighs any denial: and Rev. Moon did not originate or make up these things, they are now there clearly revealed to the entire world, or at least to those now or formerly in the Unification Church, and lastly myself, as one who learned how to read at an early age.

      

Islam was denied their true status as the Second Israel in Rev. Moons book "Divine Principle". Infact they are not even mentioned as having any bearing on the Providence at all.

Islam was denied their true status as the Second Israel in Rev. Moons book “Divine Principle”. In fact they are not even mentioned as having any bearing on the Providence at all.

       Starting at about page 351 of the black book we have Rev. Moon’s exposition of the 3 great temptations in the correspondent course of the pattern of these 3 great blessing in an exact parallel, showing how Jesus restores these blessings in his 40 day course in the Wilderness at the global level.

        This makes perfect sense until Mr. Moon says my Father was a failure who was crucified in the position of John the Baptist and who did not even resurrect in his flesh and bone, as Jesus conclusively states and says to Doubting Thomas in the Gospel, but for Rev. Moon the Gospel can be dispensed with; and for those who are truly wise like himself we must aver that Jesus was just a “spirit” after his resurrection, wandering now as a ghost transcendent of “space and time”, who could even appear in locked rooms and was therefore not in a physical body because that would be IMPOSSIBLE: according to Rev. Moon.

      Rev. Moon then says my Father Jesus died without performing any of the duties of the Messiah ( forgetting Palm Sunday, when he entered Zion in Glory with Lazarus who he raised from the dead, in the position of John the Baptists dead body, fulfilled the Scripture as Christ the Lord in Zechariah, beyond the shadow of a doubt ) and then Mr. Moon leaves the Gospel of Christ with Korean punctuality as soon as it suited him: which was immediately after 1960 when he said he was the Lamb and that he had fulfilled all of the scripture and that Bo Hui Pak was then John the Baptist and….well……we know what happened next at Yankee Stadium in 1976 when it went so terribly, terribly wrong.

         But the three great blessings of “ ( 1) be fruitful, ( 2) multiply, ( 3), subdue the earth and have dominion”; were clearly pointed out as being what the pattern was when the devil asked Jesus to turn stone into bread ( as being fruitful in attaining the powers of Adam or “son of God”), and then to throw himself down ( as the angels would catch him because he was “the son of God” ), and then to worship him and be given the whole earth as the dominion ( because then he would have dominion as the “son of God” )

        Rev. Moon clearly stated that Jesus overcame the devil and that the three great blessings were then restored in this exact pattern: but then, we have a problem: this is not the version we see in Luke.

       The version we see in Luke is different, and the terminology and the tone are completely different as well. If one is wrong then the other is right: but Rev. Moon showed that Matthew was the exact pattern of the 3 Blessings restored; so now we have some flawed human scribe called Luke who got it all wrong and we can move one: right?

       No.. Not at all.

If you look carefully at the order of the temptations as written in Luke you will see it was:

Turn ‘stone into bread’ as the first temptation:

Ordered to ‘fall down and worship me’ as the second,

and then it says he was taken to the pinnacle of the Temple:

and then told, ‘throw yourself down’. 

So: why is the order different in Matthew and Luke???  Because of two figures who were to come 2,000 years later: one put in the position of Joseph, who picked 4-18 as True Parents Day, and one as the “Son of Joseph”…..put in the position of Ephraim; born on 4-18, as “….a Day in which he ( our Joseph) looketh not for him”…. for his Lord to return. In this sense….the Child of the True Parents….spiritually.

As my Father Jesus said “…..Who receiveth whomsoever I send: receiveth me.

      

The Cross of Jerusalem; when the City of St. Francis became the New Mecca; as Mecca had once become the New Jerusalem: even as Jerusalem was the New Salem...this is my City Not Forsakenthat as the Third Israel's "New Jerusalem"

The Cross of Jerusalem; when the City of St. Francis became the New Mecca; as Mecca had once become the New Jerusalem: even as Jerusalem was the New Salem…this is my City Not Forsakenthat as the Third Israel’s “New Jerusalem”

       

We can’t. And we can’t because this was meant to be this way, for the one who would take the road of Joseph, who becomes the one called “the faithful and wise steward / servant” of Luke and Matthew, and for the Son of Joseph, who is unknown: but is the Lost Sheep of the house of Israel. 

 

The Prodigal Son: Solomon.

       But this Solomon is the one who built the 3 altars on the Mount of Olives to the Triple Goddess, one for Ashtoreth, one for Molech and one for the goddess Milcom….but the one for the daughter of Pharaoh was the worst,  for which it can now can be revealed that this was the real reason that my Father Jesus prayed 3 times to God that the Cup of Death would pass from him at Gethsemane: and now you will know why that happened.

       The one that my Father Jesus was really fighting with in the wilderness for that 40 days: the one who had sold himself to the Devil and been given all the kingdoms of the earth long before Jesus ever walked in Galilee: that fallen one was Solomon.

       Solomon, Apollyon, the black sheep; the one lost of the 100 was the lost sheep, as that one who had to be restored of the 99 to once again have the 100. This is why my Father said.

      “…For the son of man has come to seek and to save that which was lost..”

        He wasn’t talking about mankind itself in a generality: he was specifically referring to Solomon, the prodigal son of David, who had fallen into the clutches of the devil and who which the 10 tribes had also then followed into the abyss as well, because Solomon dragged them down with him. The 12 tribes were separated and the 10 of the Northern Tribes were given to Rehoboam, as of when the garment he wore was ripped into 12 pieces by the prophet, and 10 pieces given to him due to Solomon having fallen….and when Solomon died Rehoboam came back from hiding in Egypt….thus the division once again of the ten and the two….as seen with the ten sons of Jacob with Leah…as opposed to the two from Rachel, Joseph and Benjamin…

       That is why the garment that had been that of the king was ripped into 12 pieces by the prophet and the ten were lost, as the 10 tribes were soon to become lost; and only two pieces remained, which were all of the kingdom of  Judah remaining.

        This is why, although few know the reason why this is written in the Old Testament.

        I do.

       Solomon was he who feared Death more than God, and who sold himself to Satan the Devil and became Apollo, the one that Zeus, or Azazyel, the fallen Strength of God, who was the Archangel in Paradise, called the god of the sun: Apollo, the last of the gods. The one who gained the whole earth: but lost his soul.

“For all the evil under the sun” That was the refrain of Solomon: but none knew why.

      Until now.

      If you look at the order of the temptations in Luke you will see it was: stone into bread: fall down and worship me, and then; he was taken to the pinnacle of the Temple: and then told, throw yourself down.

    

The Malediction of Rev. Moon and the Invasion of Satan in the Dajjals' son; Osama, the Son of Laden; the One-eyed Dajjal from Yemen; the poor bricklayer Laden with the "Evil Eye" who became a billionaire....and had 12 sons...

The Malediction of Rev. Moon and the Invasion of Satan in the Dajjals’ son; Osama, the Son of Laden; the One-eyed Dajjal from Yemen; the poor bricklayer Laden with the “Evil Eye” who became a billionaire….and had 12 sons…

      But this order of temptations does not match the pattern of the three great blessings.

But it does match one, the one in which Solomon fell when he was tempted the three times: and fell at the first one with the mark on the hand; commanding the fallen angels with the ring for sorcery, and then the second, with the mark on the forehead for worshipping the dragon and to be able to disappear anytime he desired with the cloak of invisibility, and then the third, to be given the power to “go between”, and appear anywhere he desired on earth which was that of the winged shoes of his fallen dominion:; as ruling over the invisible realms of the jinn or spirits in the 3 lower heavens above the earth and the 3 upper hells below it with the djinn:  becoming that Angel of the Abyss, the King of his, and then others ‘Self Destruction”….Apollyon…otherwise known as “Apollo”, the last of the gods…as of “the sun”. of which Solomon wrote of all that was “…under the sun..”

      There are then three Solomon’s, the younger one, as we see in the Song of Songs, where he finds the female aspect of the soul in his kingship, and then the middle-aged vision of the wise but cynical king in Proverbs, and then at the end, the bitter and skeptically adrift king, in Ecclesiastes.

But it was in his old age that Solomon began to seek how to circumvent his coming death, as the Devil had by that time convinced him that nothing of life would be his portion but the grave; annihilation, in short. Solomon did not believe in resurrection…for him Death was final…and everlasting….

The Bride, the Lamb's Wife is the Virgin Daughter of Light, the Daughter of Allah

The Bride, the Lamb’s Wife is the Virgin Daughter of Light, the Daughter of Allah

     The Word in its letter is death: in the stark utterances of Moses and others Solomon interpreted the texts with a more and more concrete literalism; the vision we finally see in Ecclesiastes: no possibility of resurrection, and no place after life but the grave. Man and the beast both have the same life; and are the same in sharing equally the same death.

       The question is then this; who destroyed Solomon? His own shadow, materialism, Midas.

        The 666 talents of gold that we see Solomon collect is in I Kings 10:14, in “one year”.

This “Midas touch” was of his own spiritual materialism, the “daughter” turned to gold in the myth of Midas is the “soul” Solomon lost by selling his soul to the Devil and worshiping him to be given dominion over the earth.

       This is Apollo, rational delusion as Apollyon: self-destruction, the nemesis of Solomon: he who fell in love with his own life or soul, loving only his own life itself, as they of the Northern Kingdom who fell in love with themselves as seen in the myth of Narcissus, the silly dove of Ephraim, in love with their own vain image of themselves: the internal imagination created of their idolization of themselves. Thus the rose suspended over the Abyss is Solomon in love with his own reflection or soul; but it is this very thing that he loses by trying to hold onto it above all else.

       So who does the devil worship?

       Himself.

The Cain and Abel of Korea; Kim Il Sung and Sun Myung Moon

      Solomon destroyed himself, he was his own worst enemy, like David was with Bathsheba, but this happened because his fear of Death and the thought that there was nothing after this life but the grave was able to be so pressed into his mind by Satan that he sold himself to continue his existence at any cost, although he thought he had made the best of a bad situation in the bargain for his terms.

        He worshipped Satan upon the Mercyseat of the Ark that Moses had had Bezaleel build, and Solomon had then had brought into the very Temple he had built. But he ruined his own ideal.

        Sensual lust was only part of it, the rest was the desire for immortality at any cost.

        Thus he traded the Ark for his own life, or so he thought.

       And that is when it vanished: right to Baal Hermon, the White Mountain at the northernmost boundary of Israel, the real ‘Olympus’ where the third of the host of the angels came down, and took wives of the daughters of men.

It’s other name????  Mount Sion…..

        And now we shall have a little voyage of discovery. It’s very much like the yacht called New Hope that Rev. Moon used to sail around on: except that the reason that I was brought out from San Francisco after it fell: to start over in New Hope; is the same reason that it was said that the coming of the Son of Man would be as when Lot was led out of Sodom after it was judged; to start a new family in Zoar.

         As I said, the full story was the one I decided to tell you right from the start, a partial or incomplete explanation at this point would be worse than none at all.

         Right now it is you, my friend, who represent the Last Hope of the Unification Church. My friend Glenn Emery is considered a pariah, as he left the Church and took back the Blessing Rev. Moon stole from My Generation, though they don’t know it,, and I am not even considered to be anyone of account by the inverse racism due to the Korean bias, that bias being as of the fact I am not a Korean.

         

"...then look up; for your Redemption draweth nigh..."

“…then look up; for your Redemption draweth nigh…”

          There is little doubt that you placed high in the estimation of those you served because they saw something in you they decided to reward. But my servant John knows the real reason of your reward: and now both he and my Father Jesus have brought things to this pass so that you will have a real choice; not a fake one.

           Amen, and so be it.
