Building a Nation Pleasing to, and Blessed, by God

In the long run of things, “Truth” is a narrative. We live in a bubble of words, thoughts and ideas and, because we are not God, we assume, perhaps mistakenly, that what we see, hear, touch and feel connect us to truth. Except that is not necessarily true; the narrative in which we find ourselves determines what we think is “true.” This is basic linguistic theory. The sea of words we swim in (intellectually) controls our thoughts. We ought to seek a sea of words conveyed from the Creator/Truth — and that is what we call the Bible.

Here is an example: If the story is: “the earth is millions of years old” then when we look at the Grand Canyon we reject interpretations that don’t agree with an ancient earth. If the story is “God created the earth, it flooded, and we re-populated,” then the interpretation of a canyon carved by a catalclysmic movement of water of a short period of time becomes reasonable. It isn’t the fact of the Grand Canyon that matters — it is the presuppositions we are guided by as we interpret the facts.

What is the narrative? Continue reading

This is for All The Marbles

I’ve written elsewhere of Truth. I don’t know it perfectly, but I know the Source of that Truth — it’s the Creator who expresses himself through the Word of God, which is also Jesus Christ.

From that, here’s what’s going on.

Satan has power. The world is controlled by him to the extent the world rejects Jesus Christ. Satan isn’t very creative, but what he knows tends to work. His tricks aren’t new, they are consistent from Genesis on.

1) Deceive mankind and convince him that he can judge God. (This was Eve’s sin).
2) Destroy mankind, be it by war or something vastly more vile (the mixing of kinds — mankind with angels, for example).
3) Mass urbanization and a unified ranking (Babel is evil from Genesis to Revelation).
4) A gospel of hope without the Creator (Eve was promised the ability to be like God and know good and evil for herself and to never die). This is Independent Man, man the child of evolution, destined to “change” for the better over time resulting in eternal Life independent of the Creator.

We see these things today, people are trying hard to change what a human being is (mixing of kinds with genetic splicing, etc. There are movies about this — the greatest contribution of fiction is to talk about truths we could not otherwise approach).

They would kill the Christ-followers; we bear His Image and we preach His Truth. We are the only thing that stands in the way of world domination for Satan.

This is not only a global war, but a local war.

Some folks will say I’m mixing Religion with Politics; to them I reply, “Ah, you are offended that I am breaking your rules. My rules say that Jesus Christ is King of all Kings, and Lord of all Lords. This isn’t allegorical, he is The Political-Ruler-In-Chief. When you war agains this idea, you war against me and my God-King.”

Christians, this fight is for all the cookies. Continue reading

People I Used to Know

I have friends. (Really, I do. Not many. Maybe from a long time ago. We lost touch. But, I used to know them, so that counts, right?). We used to go to the same church. Heard the same preaching, good preaching. Know the Bible as the Word of God. But a couple of decades on and we are very very different people.

They call me a “racist” because of a political opinion I hold: I oppose open borders.

So what would I say to my “friends?”

I guess I would warn them. I would tell them,

“they will come for you if they can get through us. You think you are safe because you agree with them, but you are not. You believe in God, the Christian God, the God who is Superior to humans, the God who Created and did not Evolve us. You believe in BLOOD sacrifice. Continue reading

Hate Speech is When Someone Calls You a “Racist.”

I can’t emphasize this enough. When someone calls you (or your ideas, or someone you agree with) a racist or a nazi or a fascits, that IS hate speech. They are dehumanizing you, and laying the moral argument for your destruction. Do you realize that?

When Congressmen and national level politicians call you, your ideas, or people you support “racist,” they are justifying violence against you. They will attack you By Any Means Necessary — slander is just the warm up.

Don’t ever try to justify your position. Never say “I am not a racist,” because when you do it validates their narrative — it says “I agree with you that no one should every be a racist” but THEIR definition of “racism” has nothing to do with whether or not someone dislikes otherly-pigmented-peoples. Nothing at all. Continue reading

Education

I’m not a conservative because conserving what is almost totally lost is no path to victory.
I’m not a conservative because the “conservative” movement accepts Christianity in passing, as in “Judeo-Christian values” are a good thing!
I’m not a conservative because it pretends to defend vague ideas of traditional values and limited government. And this is good — I’m not kicking anything back to them — it’s just not enough. They want the product of a Christian civilization without it’s roots.

I am a man who believes that the touchstone for what is true remains the writings of Moses, the Prophets and the Apostles. It is that body of literature that I look to for inspiration, direction and guidance. Others look to collections of books written by functional atheists (wearing a Cross and endorsing reverse entropy is not Christianity any more that two lesbian priestesses presiding over Communion).

Right and Left: Yes, There IS Overlap

Coming back to this trope, I have a few ideas to add, some of which have come from AOC’s “Green” agenda.

I would have no objection to abandon the idea of a “corporate person.” These “persons” operate beyond local control and act as a law unto themselves imposing upon others that to which others have not consented. Some are larger than nation states. Some run nation states from the shadows. It was an American President who warned of the military-industrial complex, and it seems immune from any sort of guidance from “we the people.”

I am in agreement with the ideas that global trade and transnational corporations and their leadership (think Davos) are way above and beyond any kind of local control. I am a big fan of local control (as are the “Green” folks, especially with regard to local wares and manufactures and food). Some of the Left (probably the instinctual and unthinking Left) oppose globalism and the “flat” earth economic model. So do I.

I support “diversity” in people groups. In this we should fully oppose open borders and the idea that one group must submit to the moral and philosophical demands of others. The idea that some self-appointed group of “do-gooders” (like the SPLC) instructs the global elite and their minions who to hate and reject is appalling. Transnational Corporations and media empires hire the SPLC to tell them who to oppress, vilify, and slander. — this is the very totalitarianism that left ought to hate, yet embraces.

I opposed majority rule. I am not a (small d) democrat. Neither was Moses. Neither was Jesus. Neither is God. There is an order, the Ten Commandments, by which a good society ought be ordered. THat’s what I advocate. I call it a Christian order for a Christian nation/bloodline. Here, of course, the Left will go ballistic and call me all manner of evil names. I get that. We aren’t on the same page, ultimately. And so it is best we go our separate ways.

I hate Babel and Babylon — they build it.
I submit to God — the reject God.
I do not believe in equality — they preach that all are equal.

I will promise them that I will try to convince them that my way is better (via traditional evangelism). I will promise them that if they try to subvert my nation they will be met with violence. And I ask them to promise me that they will not, with violence, attempt to impose their narrow minded world view upon my nation.

In line with support for localism, I support “micro generation,” the idea that local communities own their own power generation. This is common sense. It is not good to depend upon a distance source over which you have no control to supply anything, power, food, water, protection, or legal jurisdiction.

I support the break up of monopolies (Google, Mega-Banks, etc). I am of the opinion that collapsing international corporations is a boon for local control. AOC’s “green” agenda describes this in several ways — I support those.

I have written elsewhere that global efficiency is not, in any way, my ultimate store of value. I do not believe global efficiency empowers local communities nor raises wages for local workers. I oppose, in principle, flat efficient global trade (heretic that I am). I would rather protect local Greek breweries (disgusting and expensive beer) than distant German (cheap and tasty) beer. I would rather Greek family breweries flourish with bad beer than reward distant German industries who make good beer. Take that model, move it to North America, and I feel the same. No more Mexico tomatoes — I prefer expensive, lower quality tomatoes grown in Colorado hot-houses , that support my people, here, where I live. I prefer inefficient local businesses that support my neighbors to “efficient” global corporations, any day and all day.

I have no interest in supporting our current banking structure that rewards debtors and governments and punishes small savers (individuals who want to own their own house and proprietary establishment). The system called “capitalist” is nothing more than a monopoly created by government authorities for the benefit of a very few. They claim (as all socialist claim) do to favors to the poor (by indenturing them), but they merely enslave those of modest resources. Better that all real estate prices be subdued by lack of access to easy debt. Then those who could afford land and property would actually own that land, and not be but a mere renters of that capital from men who were granted a false business contract and monopoly from the State. I hate this. I hope the Left hates this. We can agree on this. This is not a compromise — this is a rejection of debt slavery and control by distant and unresponsive powers.

I see not in the Writings a model divorced from a individual other than that of a patriarch, who governs an extended family — offspring from his own loins. The idea of a fictional entity granted the privileges (but not obligations) of a Father is alien to my world view. Debt and non-human personhood is alien to Godly society. In this I can accord with the Left.

Trade Unions merely attempt to counter the illegitimate strength of mega-corporations — false persons — who when coupled with “capitalist” banks wield a force against local control entirely beyond any balanced scale of local autonomy. Unions are an expression of local control countering the power of trans-national corporations who exist only as a function of a fictional grant from a legal state. These, coupled with the fractional reserve banking system (which enslaves the saving class) ought not receive special protections from those who control the men who carry weapons who are paid for by people who work, save, and invest in their offspring (the middling classes). Those middling classes bear the burden of their own oppression.

As divided as we are, I think there is more in common between the Right and the Left than we commonly recognize.

Speaking for myself (on the Right), the global and economic and system advocating a “rule of Law” and “universal human rights” is but camouflage for totalitarians who espouse only “one” right way to think, act, and live. Global debt driven capitalism destroyed middle classes in Europe and America (unaffordable housing and the decimation of local businesses). Local production is better that international production — Continue reading

Introduction

It was not an obvious move, for me, to strike out into dangerous territory, which is to mix religion and politics. There are a lot of conservative writers and libertarian, and right wing thinkers and communicators. On the other hand, there are a lot of “Christian” writers and podcasts. And there is, to be fair, some overlap. There are a couple of bloggers and podcasters that I follow that are political, conservative, and Christian, and are open about advocating for a political system amenable to those values.

I think I’m doing something different.

I’m not interested in “conservative” politics for its own sake, nor libertarian politics, and, although I’m an orthodox Protestant Christian, this isn’t about a personal conversion to this religion nor the generic spiritual teachings one encounters at church.

Ultimately this is a quest for Truth; and starting from that foundation of Truth to work out the implications for that Truth in time, in the world, in history, in society through the rise and fall of civilizations. Continue reading

Organic Society and What Right and Left Have in Common

We are lectured constantly on the need to “compromise” in our politics in order to get along because it is “bad” to be so “divisive.” It’s funny, though, how that compromise is and always will be a compromise toward the Left. The Left calls for compromise on gun control, alien amnesty, gay marriage, social services, student aid and more money for education. It is never a compromise to move the agenda to the Right (less gun control, less money for universities, stricter immigration, the establishment of marriage between male and female only).

The Republican Party has been the perfect partner to the Leftist Democrat party — it has howled in outrage and yet faithfully “compromised” with the Democrats at every stage an level through out presidential administrations. Republicans truly are the “loyal” opposition to the Democrats. Continue reading

Universities ARE the State Establishment of Religion

There is no such thing as a non-religious order. The current religious order is a secular and atheistic order that, as a matter of dogma, asserts that this is not “religious.” Attached to this assertion of irreligiousity is a presumption (ingrained in the masses by our public school system) that the non-religions order is superior to and above that of the religious order.

But if religion is understood as a system of beliefs and a faith, then there is no such thing as a non-religious order. The secular bedrock of American education (and thus of all proceeding endeavors of mankind) is a deep and profound belief system. It is no more “scientific” than a Christian world view except that it self-deceives by claiming to be “scientific.” Continue reading

Freedom

I was called in by the Prime Minister. He asked me what to do. His country was a failure. Mired in debt, they had borrowed money from the foreigners for decades with no hope of repayment. Bankrupt, because the poor got poorer and there was no industry or agriculture to tax. High unemployment because, like most countries, they bought into the idea of open borders and free flow of trade and commerce. Cheap foreign goods drove small business into bankruptcy. They bought the lies of the world powers: “go into debt,” they said. “Open your borders,” the urged. They accepted foreign aid which drove farms out of business: they could not compete with free grain. Ninety percent of the farms ceased production, rural families urbanized and lived disease invested hovels. Tuberculosis exploded. Everyone wanted more. No one had anything to give. Foreign aid did nothing but cement institutional poverty for generations.

“Sir,” I said, “since you can’t sink any lower, there’s no downside to doing something different.”

And I laid it out to him.

“First,” I said, “democracy is a sham.” Continue reading
