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.”

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.”

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.

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.

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

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.

The Real Issues

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….

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 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.

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?

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…”

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.

The Cross of Jerusalem

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.

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

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: A Comparison

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

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…

……………The Corporate Philosophy of Greenspan Brand Fascism

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

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 and 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 Tearsl set into motion by My Generation and put forward  bytheir 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.

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.

The Third and Last Advent of Elijah: and the Prophetic Overview of the Day and the Hour 

It began with an act: and actors; to overthrow the Government of the United States, if only symbolically. Thus we were witnessing a Ritual Coronation, but it carried real weight: because every man and woman from Congress who was there that day was an accomplice to Treason: the Active Overthrow of the Government…

Their concerted act therefore carried the Weight of their Conviction, because they all broke their Oath’s of Office to Uphold the Constitution, and it was done to basically appoint Rev. Moon as their King.…if only Symbolically: but it was more than merely symbolic: it forecast America as the Foundation for the Kingdom of God

The Problem was that Moon was the Messenger in the position of the “friend of the Bridegroom“: not the Messiah, or “Bridegroom” himself: he admittedly then conned himself first and then fooled them all, just as if John the Baptist had pretended Jesus was an impostor and he was really the Messiah instead.

Falwell’s Savior

Another case of saving a right-wing icon occurred when the Rev. Jerry Falwell was facing financial ruin over the debts piling up at Liberty University.

But the fundamentalist Christian school in Lynchburg, Virginia, got a last-minute bail-out in the mid-1990s ostensibly from two Virginia businessmen, Dan Reber and Jimmy Thomas, who used their non-profit Christian Heritage Foundation to snap up a large chunk of Liberty’s debt for $2.5 million, a fraction of its face value.

Falwell rejoiced and called the moment “the greatest single day of financial advantage” in the school’s history, even though it was accomplished at the disadvantage of many small true-believing investors who had bought the church construction bonds through a Texas company.

But Falwell’s secret benefactor behind the debt purchase was Sun Myung Moon, who was kept in the background partly because of his controversial Biblical interpretations that hold Jesus to have been a failure and because of Moon’s alleged brainwashing of thousands of young Americans, often shattering their bonds with their biological families.

Moon had used his tax-exempt Women’s Federation for World Peace to funnel $3.5 million to the Reber-Thomas Christian Heritage Foundation, the non-profit that purchased the school’s debt. I stumbled onto this Moon-Falwell connection by examining the Internal Revenue Service filings of Moon’s front groups.

Jerry Falwell & The Rev. Moon: The Harold & Kumar of right-wing goons

The Women Federation’s vice president Susan Fefferman confirmed that the $3.5 million grant had gone to “Mr. Falwell’s people” for the benefit of Liberty University. [For more on Moon’s funding of the Right, see Robert Parry’s Secrecy & Privilege.]

Moon also used the Women’s Federation to pay substantial speaking fees to former President George H.W. Bush, who gave talks at Moon-sponsored events. In September 1995, Bush and his wife, Barbara, gave six speeches in Asia for the Women’s Federation. In one speech on Sept. 14 to 50,000 Moon supporters in Tokyo, Bush said “what really counts is faith, family and friends.”

In summer 1996, Bush was lending his prestige to Moon again.

The former President addressed the Moon-connected Family Federation for World Peace in Washington, an event that gained notoriety when comedian Bill Cosby tried to back out of his contract after learning of Moon’s connection. Bush had no such qualms. [Washington Post, July 30, 1996]

In fall 1996, Moon needed the ex-President’s help once more. Moon was trying to replicate his Washington Times influence in South America by opening a regional newspaper, Tiempos del Mundo.

But South American journalists were recounting unsavory chapters of Moon’s history, including his links to South Korea’s intelligence service and various neo-fascist groups.

Some newspaper articles noted that in the early 1980s, Moon had used friendships with the military dictatorships in Argentina and Uruguay – which had been responsible for tens of thousands of political murders – to invest in those two countries. There also were allegations of Moon’s links to the region’s major drug traffickers.

#1: Julian Assange Speaks

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

“The world is…galloping into a new transnational dystopia.

This development has not been properly recognized outside of national security circles. It has been hidden by secrecy, complexity and scale.

The internet, our greatest tool of emancipation, has been transformed into the most dangerous facilitator of totalitarianism we have ever seen.

The internet is a threat to human civilization. These transformations have come about silently, because those who know what is going on work in the global surveillance industry and have no incentives to speak out.

Left to its own trajectory, within a few years, global civilization will be a postmodern surveillance dystopia, from which escape for all but the most skilled individuals will be impossible. In fact, we may already be there.

While many writers have considered what the internet means for global civilization, they are wrong. They are wrong because they do not have the sense of perspective that direct experience brings.

They are wrong because they have never met the enemy.”

Moon’s Religious Empire’s Plan to Establish a New World Order.

…..The Right Wing Coup in the Dirksen Building in Washington DC

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

What we are witnessing now did not arrive overnight; it is what one would see in the decades of this hideous slow motion train-wreck, when time itself slows down in the beginning moment of being in an accident; like a high speed train wreck, in that exact moment when you see the accident that you are going to be in: right before impact.

“…In Jin had assumed control of the U.S. church at a precarious moment for Moon’s religious empire. Her father had come to the United States from Korea nearly 40 years earlier, aiming to “subjugate” America as the first phase in a plan to establish a new world order.

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

The King of the New World Order by Washington DC

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

Moon had gone on to amass extraordinary political influence, building a vast network of powerful right-wing organizations and forging alliances with every Republican presidential administration since Ronald Reagan’s.

In 2004, he and his wife even staged an elaborate coronation ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, which at least a dozen lawmakers attended.1 

Republican Roscoe Bartlett bowed down before the couple, and Democrat Danny Davis carried in one of two golden crowns that were placed on their heads.

Rev. Moon’s son Hyung Jin worshiping his golden statues of the True Parents: as of Idolatry; not at all allowed, ever,  as the making of a “graven image” is forbidden by the Law of Moses: “Thou shalt not make for thyself or bow down to a graven image,,,,”

Moon then informed the audience that “kings and presidents” had declared him “humanity’s savior” and that Jesus, Buddha, Hitler, and Stalin had been “reborn as new persons” through his teachings……”

In 1976, Congress began looking into a massive covert KCIA operation designed to sway U.S. policy toward South Korea. The investigation found that the Moon organization was likely a “political tool” of the Korean spy agency and had “systematically violated U.S. tax, immigration, banking, currency and Foreign Agents Registration Act laws.

In retaliation, the church filed a $30 million lawsuit against Representative Donald M. Fraser, who chaired the subcommittee behind the investigation, and launched a brutal—and ultimately successful—campaign to scuttle Fraser’s 1978 Senate bid. But despite their efforts, Moon was charged with tax evasion.

A late ’70s Gallup Poll found that Moon “elicited one of the most overwhelmingly negative responses ever reported by a major poll,” his only rivals being Nikita Khrushchev and Fidel Castro.

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

#2: Robert Parry Speaks

==========

In 1980, Moon made more friends in South America when a right-wing alliance of Bolivian military officers and drug dealers organized what became known as the Cocaine Coup. Moon’s WACL associates, such as Alfred Candia, coordinated the arrival of some of the paramilitary operatives who assisted in the violent putsch.

Right-wing Argentine intelligence officers mixed with a contingent of young European neo-fascists as they collaborated with Nazi war criminal Barbie in carrying out the bloody coup that overthrew the elected left-of-center government.

The victory put into power a right-wing military dictatorship indebted to the drug lords. Bolivia became South America’s first narco-state.

One of the first well-wishers arriving in La Paz to congratulate the new government was Moon’s top lieutenant, Bo Hi Pak. The Moon organization published a photo of Pak meeting with the new strongman, General Garcia Meza.

After the visit to the mountainous capital, Pak declared, “I have erected a throne for Father Moon in the world’s highest city.”

According to later Bolivian government and newspaper reports, a Moon representative invested about $4 million in preparations for the coup.

Bolivia’s WACL representatives also played key roles, and CAUSA, one of Moon’s anti-communist organizations, listed as members nearly all the leading Bolivian coup-makers.

Soon, Colonel Luis Arce-Gomez, a coup organizer and the cousin of cocaine kingpin Roberto Suarez, went into partnership with big narco-traffickers, including Trafficante’s Cuban-American smugglers. Nazi war criminal Barbie and his young neo-fascist followers found new work protecting Bolivia’s major cocaine barons and transporting drugs to the border.

“The paramilitary units – conceived by Barbie as a new type of SS – sold themselves to the cocaine barons,” German journalist Kai Hermann wrote. “The attraction of fast money in the cocaine trade was stronger than the idea of a national socialist revolution in Latin America.

A month after the coup, General Garcia Meza participated in the Fourth Congress of the Latin American Anti-Communist Confederation, an arm of the World Anti-Communist League.

Also attending that Fourth Congress was WACL president Woo Jae Sung, a leading Moon disciple.

As the drug lords consolidated their power in Bolivia, the Moon organization expanded its presence, too. Hermann reported that in early 1981, war criminal Barbie and Moon leader Thomas Ward were seen together in apparent prayer.

On May 31, 1981, Moon representatives sponsored a CAUSA reception at the Sheraton Hotel’s Hall of Freedom in La Paz. Moon’s lieutenant Bo Hi Pak and Bolivian strongman Garcia Meza led a prayer for President Reagan’s recovery from an assassination attempt.

In his speech, Bo Hi Pak declared,

God had chosen the Bolivian people in the heart of South America as the ones to conquer communism.”

According to a later Bolivian intelligence report, the Moon organization sought to recruit an “armed church” of Bolivians, with about 7,000 Bolivians receiving some paramilitary training.

Moon’s Escape

But by late 1981, the cocaine taint of Bolivia’s military junta was so deep and the corruption so staggering that U.S.-Bolivian relations were stretched to the breaking point.

“The Moon sect disappeared overnight from Bolivia as clandestinely as they had arrived,” Hermann reported.

The Cocaine Coup leaders soon found themselves on the run, too.

Interior Minister Arce-Gomez was eventually extradited to Miami and was sentenced to 30 years in prison for drug trafficking. Drug lord Roberto Suarez got a 15-year prison term. General Garcia Meza became a fugitive from a 30-year sentence imposed on him in Bolivia for abuse of power, corruption and murder.

Ex-Gestapo official Barbie, known as the “butcher of Lyon,” was returned to France to face a life sentence for war crimes. He died in 1991.

But Moon’s organization suffered few negative repercussions from the Cocaine Coup. By the early 1980s, flush with seemingly unlimited funds, Moon had moved on to promoting himself with the new Republican administration in Washington.

Yet, where Moon got his cash remained one of Washington’s deepest mysteries – and one that few U.S. conservatives wanted to solve.

“Some Moonie-watchers even believe that some of the business enterprises are actually covers for drug trafficking,” wrote Scott and Jon Lee Anderson.

While Moon’s representatives have refused to detail how they’ve sustained their far-flung activities, Moon’s spokesmen have angrily denied recurring allegations about profiteering off illegal trafficking in weapons and drugs.

In a typical response to a gun-running question by the Argentine newspaper, Clarin, Moon’s representative Ricardo DeSena responded,

“I deny categorically these accusations and also the barbarities that are said about drugs and brainwashing. Our movement responds to the harmony of the races, nations and religions and proclaims that the family is the school of love.” [Clarin, July 7, 1996]

Without doubt, however, Moon’s organization has had a long record of association with organized crime figures, including ones implicated in the drug trade. Besides collaborating with leaders of the Japanese yakuza and the Cocaine Coup government of Bolivia, Moon’s organization developed close ties with the Honduran military and the Nicaraguan contra movement, both permeated with drug smugglers. [See Robert Parry’s Lost History.]

On the Offensive

Moon’s organization also used the Washington Times and its political clout in the nation’s capital to intimidate or discredit government officials and journalists who tried to investigate Moon-connected criminal activities.

In the mid-1980s, for instance, when journalists and congressional investigators began probing the evidence of contra-drug trafficking, they came under attack from the Times.

An Associated Press story that I co-wrote with Brian Barger about a Miami-based federal probe into gun- and drug-running by the contras was denigrated in an April 11, 1986, front-page Washington Times article with the headline:

“Story on [contra] drug smuggling denounced as political ploy.”

When Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts, conducted a Senate probe and uncovered additional evidence of contra-drug trafficking, the Washington Times denounced him, too. The newspaper first published articles depicting Kerry’s probe as a wasteful political witch hunt.

“Kerry’s anti-contra efforts extensive, expensive, in vain,” announced the headline of one Times article on Aug. 13, 1986.

But when Kerry exposed more contra wrongdoing, the Washington Times shifted tactics. In 1987 in front-page articles, it began accusing Kerry’s staff of obstructing justice because their investigation was supposedly interfering with Reagan administration efforts to get at the truth.

“Kerry staffers damaged FBI probe,” said a Jan. 21, 1987, Times article that opened with the assertion:

Congressional investigators for Sen. John Kerry severely damaged a federal drug investigation last summer by interfering with a witness while pursuing allegations of drug smuggling by the Nicaraguan resistance, federal law enforcement officials said.”

Despite the attacks, Kerry’s contra-drug investigation eventually concluded that a number of contra units – both in Costa Rica and Honduras – were implicated in the cocaine trade.

“It is clear that individuals who provided support for the contras were involved in drug trafficking, the supply network of the contras was used by drug trafficking organizations, and elements of the contras themselves knowingly received financial and material assistance from drug traffickers,” Kerry’s investigation stated in a report issued April 13, 1989.

“In each case, one or another agency of the U.S. government had information regarding the involvement either while it was occurring or immediately thereafter.”

Kerry’s investigation also found that Honduras had become an important way station for cocaine shipments heading north during the contra war.

“Elements of the Honduran military were involved … in the protection of drug traffickers from 1980 on,” the report said.

“These activities were reported to appropriate U.S. government officials throughout the period.

“Instead of moving decisively to close down the drug trafficking by stepping up the DEA presence in the country and using the foreign assistance the United States was extending to the Hondurans as a lever, the United States closed the DEA office in Tegucigalpa and appears to have ignored the issue.”

The Kerry investigation represented an indirect challenge to Vice President George H.W. Bush, who had been named by President Reagan to head the South Florida Task Force for interdicting the flow of drugs into the United States and was later put in charge of the National Narcotics Border Interdiction System.

In short, Vice President Bush was the lead official in the U.S. government to cope with the drug trade, which he himself had dubbed a national security threat.

If the American voters came to believe that Bush had compromised his anti-drug responsibilities to protect the image of the Nicaraguan contras and other rightists in Central America, that judgment could have threatened the political future of Bush and his politically ambitious family.

By publicly challenging press and congressional investigations of this touchy subject, the Washington Times helped keep an unfavorable media spotlight from swinging in the direction of the Vice President – and bought some cover for Moon’s drug-connected right-wing allies, too.

Mounting Evidence

The resistance of the Reagan and the first Bush administrations prevented anything like a complete story of the contra-drug scandal from emerging in a timely fashion.

However, the evidence – eventually assembled by investigators at the CIA, the Justice Department and other federal agencies – now indicates that Bolivia’s Cocaine Coup operatives were only the first in a line of clever drug smugglers who tried to squeeze under the protective umbrella of Reagan’s favorite covert operation, the contra war.

Other cocaine smugglers soon followed, sharing some of their drug profits with the contras as a way to minimize investigative interest by the Reagan-Bush law enforcement agencies.

Based on official investigations, we now know that the contra-connected smugglers included Bolivians, the Medellin cartel, Panama’s government of Manuel Noriega, the Honduran military, the Honduran-Mexican smuggling ring of Ramon Matta Ballesteros, and the Miami-based anti-Castro Cubans with their connections to Mafia operations throughout the United States.

In some cases, U.S. intelligence officials bent over backwards not to take timely notice of contra-connected drug trafficking out of fear that fuller investigations would embarrass the contras and their patrons in the Reagan-Bush administrations.

For instance, on Oct. 22, 1982, a cable written by the CIA’s Directorate of Operations stated,

“There are indications of links between [a U.S. religious organization] and two Nicaraguan counter-revolutionary groups. These links involve an exchange in [the United States] of narcotics for arms.”

The cable added that the participants were planning a meeting in Costa Rica for such a deal. When the cable arrived, senior CIA officials were concerned. On Oct. 27, CIA headquarters asked for more information from a U.S. law enforcement agency.

The law enforcement agency expanded on its report by telling the CIA that representatives of the contra FDN and another contra force, the UDN, would be meeting with several unidentified U.S. citizens. But then, the CIA reversed itself, deciding that it wanted no more information on the grounds that U.S. citizens were involved.

“In light of the apparent participation of U.S. persons throughout, agree you should not pursue the matter further,” CIA headquarters wrote on Nov. 3, 1982. Two weeks later, after discouraging additional investigation, CIA headquarters suggested it might be necessary to label the allegations of a guns-for-drugs deal as “misinformation.”

The CIA’s Latin American Division, however, responded on Nov. 18, 1982, that several contra officials had gone to San Francisco for the meetings with supporters, presumably as part of the same guns-for-drugs deal. But CIA inspector general Frederick Hitz – when he investigated in the mid-to-late 1990s – found no additional information about that deal in CIA files.

Also, by keeping the names of the participants censored when the documents finally were released in 1998, the CIA prevented outside investigators from examining whether the “U.S. religious organization” had any affiliation with Moon’s network of quasi-religious groups, which were assisting the contras at that time.

                                                                      The Black Rat Snake in Washington Times newsroom.

( This excerpt is of an article reprinted from Consortium News by Robert Parry on May 2nd. 2010 )

As an investigative journalist, I’m not much for catchy political metaphors, but the revelation that snakes and rodents are infesting the Washington Times building as the Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s newspaper sinks into a financial swamp does have some poetic justice about it.

After all, for 28 years, the right-wing Washington Times has sent disinformation slithering through the U.S. political system while creating a nest for propagandists who have befouled American democracy with irrationality and dirty tricks.

Indeed, one could say that Moon’s newspaper pioneered the modern style of deceptive “journalism” that is the daily fare on Fox News, angry talk radio and right-wing blogs.

 

Four things led us to this Abyss of our Nation’s Destruction:

1.) … The Patriot Act after the Bush / Cheney Coup of 9/11 in 2001, as the first Victory of the Deep State, in which Absolute Power was given to the Executive Branch, by which our Republics’s Constitutional form of Government was nullified

2. ) … The Supreme Court and Judge Scalia’s legalizing of Graft, as the second Victory of the Deep State called “Citizens United”, seen in the wholesale purchase of Congress by the Koch Brothers and Goldman Sachs.

3.) … The Supreme Court and Judge Scalia’s legalizing of Institutional Racism in the South as the third Victory of the Deep State: seen in the Gutting of  the Voting Rights Act, by which Federal Oversight was Removed from the South

4.) … The End of the Fourth Estate in the slow CIA Takeover of Mass Media by a Monopoly, as the fourth Victory of the Deep State, which Ended Free Speech at the National Level, and voided the 1st Amendment: which destroyed the established Free Press as the Voice of the People and the Guardian of American Liberty.

The problem now is the quandary we have without a real National Free Press is that we don’t have an operating and functional Fourth Estate, and thus no real Free Speech: because our voice…the voice of truth: the voice of the people…”Vox Populi” is being completely suppressed. Witness how so many stories of National Import are now censored and never addressed in public, thus ending any chance of redress, because there is no longer a National Discourse which has any relationship to the Truth

But let us look at how we got to this point in the story of America’s fall: a hell bound descent into a Southern Evangelical theocracy openly supported a corporately sponsored Korean dictatorship with Rev. Moon as it’s Savior.

        The End of the Separation of Church and State with the GOP’s betrayal of the Constitution 

Prophetically accurate to the extreme; but ignored even now by many in politics who are in total steadfast denial:                                                                              yet his pronouncement rings true; and the peril of our Nation’s Ending is now Here Manifest

“Man and fascism cannot co-exist. If fascism conquers, man will cease to exist and there will remain only man-like creatures that have undergone an internal transformation. But if man, who is endowed with reason and kindness, should conquer, then Fascism must perish, and those who have submitted to it will once again become people.” 

— Vasily Grossman (Life and Fate)

 

………Kim Il Sung and “the Shining Dragon”: his North Korean brother, Mun Yong-meyong

Why Did the GOP and Lindsey Graham Crown Rev. Moon as the Messiah in the Dirksen Center and Violate the Constitution’s Article 9 which forbids the Giving out of Titles of Nobility???

For those who were there on March 13th, 2004, at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, saw the opening ceremony, with a rabbi blowing a ram’s horn, the shofar….

“…….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…..”

Why did Lindsey Graham and the GOP, in collusion with Larry Moffitt of the Washington Times violate Article 9 of the Constitution??????

 

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……”

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 photo that quite accurate showed him to be there at the behest of the Washington Times with President Larry Moffitt as it’s host, then said they were indeed there,  “…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.”

 

 

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 hungred, 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?…”

40 And 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 shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

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 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.

…………………………The Archangel of the Guardian Angels, Barakiel

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.

De Tocqueville was once asked what Justice in America was like in it’s practical application. To this he replied, in polite but sharp words, that bespoke of his fears at how the “malefactors of great wealth” would seek the inevitable overturning of our Republic if means were not found to prevent them in using their power and prestige to economically cause and then politically result in enslaving every citizen in our Nation:

“….Justice in America means that if a Rich Man and a Poor Man are found sleeping under a Bridge,                                                                                       that they will both be arrested and charged with exactly the same crime  …..”

Prophetically accurate to the extreme; but ignored even now by many in politics who are in total steadfast denial:                                                                              yet his pronouncement rings true; and the peril of our Nation’s Ending is now Here

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 hungred, 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?…”

40 And 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 shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

We now have come to the Tragic End of our Republic: and the Democratically Established

 form of Representational Government in America

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

What we are witnessing now; is what one would see in the hideous slow motion camera when time itself slows down in the beginning moment of being in an accident; like a high speed train wreck, in that exact moment when you see the accident that you are going to be in: right before impact. Las Vegas yesterday ( 10-2-2017 ) is a very good example….

Some have said at those times that ones entire life flashes before ones eyes …. and then comes the collision.

Four things led us to this Abyss of our Nation’s Destruction:

1.) … The Patriot Act after the Bush / Cheney Coup of 9/11 in 2001, as the first Victory of the Deep State, in which Absolute Power was given to the Executive Branch, by which our Republics’s Constitutional form of Government was nullified

2. ) … The Supreme Court and Judge Scalia’s legalizing of Graft, as the second Victory of the Deep State called “Citizens United”, seen in the wholesale purchase of Congress by the Koch Brothers and Goldman Sachs.

3.) … The Supreme Court and Judge Scalia’s legalizing of Institutional Racism in the South as the third Victory of the Deep State: seen in the Gutting of  the Voting Rights Act, by which Federal Oversight was Removed from the South

4.) … The End of the Fourth Estate in the slow CIA Takeover of Mass Media by a Monopoly, as the fourth Victory of the Deep State, which Ended Free Speech at the National Level, and voided the 1st Amendment: which destroyed the established Free Press as the Voice of the People and the Guardian of American Liberty.

The problem now is that the quandary we are in is that without a real national free press is that we don’t have an operating and functional fourth estate, and thus no real free speech: because our voice…the voice of truth: the voice of the people…”Vox Populi” is being completely suppressed. Witness how so many stories of National Import are now censored and never addressed in public, thus ending any chance of redress, because there is no longer a National Discourse which has any relationship to the Truth

But let us look at how we got to this point in the story of America’s fall: a hell bound descent into a Southern Evangelical theocracy openly supported a corporately sponsored Korean dictatorship with Rev. Moon as it’s Savior.

        The End of the Separation of Church and State with the GOP

Why Did the GOP and Lindsey Graham Crown Rev. Moon as the Messiah in the Dirksen Center and Violate the Constitution’s Article 9 which forbids the Giving out of Titles of Nobility???

For those who were there on March 13th, 2004, at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, saw the opening ceremony, with a rabbi blowing a ram’s horn, the shofar….

“…….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…..”

Why did Lindsey Graham and the GOP, in collusion with Larry Moffitt of the Washington Times violate Article 9 of the Constitution??????

 

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……”

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 photo that quite accurate showed him to be there at the behest of the Washington Times with President Larry Moffitt as it’s host, then said they were indeed there,  “…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.”

Federal court Judge dismisses case against DWS and DNC while stating that he believes all the charges are “True”. 

Official statement from Federal Judge William Zloch:

“The Court thus assumes that the DNC and Wasserman Schultz preferred Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate                                         for president over Bernie Sanders or any other Democratic candidate.

It assumes that they stockpiled information useful to the Clinton campaign.

It assumes that they devoted their resources to assist Clinton in securing the party’s nomination and opposing other Democratic candidates.

And it assumes that they engaged in these surreptitious acts while publicly proclaiming they were completely neutral, fair, and impartial.

This Order therefore concerns only technical matters of pleading and subject-matter jurisdiction.”

Bernie Sanders and the Gospel of my Father Jesus:

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.

The Real Issues

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, “It is written,My house shall be called the house of prayer‘; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”  Matthew 21:12-13

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….

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 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.

                                                                    …………………….…….A real Christian philosopher

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

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 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.
