How sadly appropriate it is that a week begun with relentless media obsession over President Trump having supposedly referred to certain nations as “shitholes” now ends with the looming release of a detailed memo that could seriously threaten and possibly even crack the very foundation of America’s farcical approach to freedom, liberty, and democracy? Before […]
Even some fans of massive State power are beginning to grow weary of our increasingly Orwellian situation here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA. In a rare flicker of good news on this front, an article posted by McClatchy yesterday revealed that at least some partial clarity may finally be coming […]
Confronting (or at least noticing) America’s coordinated wars on privacy, liberty, freedom, gender, family, and Syria.
As we roll from last week’s story of the American Surveillance State spying on an American President-elect into this week’s story of the American Military Industrial Complex clawing its way to within talon’s grasp of securing yet another war on the other side of the planet, we are well served to note two primary attributes of the tyrannical nightmare state described in Orwell’s […]
Uh oh, we have another Edward Snowden (or two) on our hands. Or make that: Yay! We have another Edward Snowden (or two) on our hands! Apparently the Lord has chosen to bless with yet another wave of bright, revealing, undeserved and (often) unwanted light on the subject of just how evil and off the biblical […]
When even the sitting President of the United States becomes an open target of the American Deep State, you know the end is near. What is the Deep State? So glad you asked. The American Deep State is the true governing force of the United States. It transcends presidential administrations and party affiliations. It remains entrenched and […]
Is privacy just too much to expect these days in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA? Why yes, of course it is! (See: Privacy is for masters. Transparency is for slaves. Welcome to “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.) What a stupid – and increasingly […]
Wanna make a professing Christian in America roll their eyes and laugh out loud? Maybe even make ’em point, smirk, dismiss you as utterly disconnected from reality and accuse you of not living in “the real world”? If so, just try this: Calmly and clearly state that we as people here in “the real world” (as in: […]
Privacy. Who needs it? Well, terrorists, that’s who! Yeah, it’s those evil terrorists who make use of things like private communications in order to plot, plan, and promote their evil terroristic deeds! So obviously if we’re gonna deal with terrorists we need to get rid of the terrorist-enabling tool of privacy. That’s basically the line […]
“Fixed” Social Security…”improved” State-run children’s education…”strengthened” Medicare…”necessary” State-run “safety nets”… Welcome to the New Conservatism – a “conservatism” that is flat out socialistic. State-run this, that, and the other thing aren’t just the cherished, protected tools of the Pagan Political Left. They are equally adored and useful to the Pagan Political Right. Just look at […]
According to the American State, American citizens should be forced to register their private drones with said American State. You know, ’cause citizens might hurt somebody with their drones…unlike the American State, which only regularly spies on and routinely kills innocent people because…well…that’s just what The State does, you know? But citizens just can’t handle the responsibilities that […]
The Crime of Pre-Crime: How Christians in America will be “preemptively” dealt with by the American State.
What does a culture at war with Christ look like? What does a culture at war with Christians look like? Even a casual glance around today’s American cultural landscape gives us more answers than we should ever want to find to these questions, yet there they are, staring unblinkingly right back at us. Our long slide from the deep, […]
Wanna know where the long term embrace of a wildly unbiblical “lesser of two evils” approach to leadership selection leads? Wanna know how easy it is for anti-Christian corporate/banking elites to steer us straight on into hard core Statism through their production, promotion, and control of The All-American Political Puppet Show? Well there’s no need to wonder. Just […]
Jeb! (not Bush) Launches Presidential Campaign with “Conservative” Case for the Welfare/Warfare Nanny State
For those still enslaved to the Pagan Right/”Anybody but [insert name of Pagan Left candidate here]” political puppet show paradigm under which we are being led ever-deeper into Statism by our favorite “conservative” “Christian” “leaders”, a Big Gun from the Pagan Right side of the puppet show stage is about to make it official. As AP reports, Jeb! […]
Disney World is a magical place. But you knew that already. What you maybe didn’t know was just what kind of magic is really goin’ on ’round there. I’m talkin’ black magic. Some of the blackest – and bleakest – of magic, actually. Black economic magic, to be precise. I’m talkin’ ’bout the All-American Corporate […]
Okay, so let’s put on our thinking caps and try real hard to concentrate for just a second or two and consider the (probably very significant) relationship between two points… 1. The NSA needs to “protect our freedom and liberty” by gathering information on the citizens of the United States on a scale and at a level […]
We’re encouraged to feel and do a lot of things on Memorial Day. We’re purposefully immersed in countless emotion-provoking images, speeches and sentiments. We’re encouraged to lovingly admire, support and adore our beloved American State. To that end, we’re called to remember the great sacrifices made by many to secure the freedoms and liberties that we now enjoy […]
As National Journal reported this morning, After Over 10 Hours, Rand Paul Ends His NSA Filibuster. The article chronicled Senator Paul’s recent stand on the Senate floor in bold opposition to the Orwellian Surveillance State that has taken deep, diabolical root here in the “land of the free” and the home of the…you guessed it…NSA. (See: […]
Rubio makes Orwellian case for perpetual war even better than Bush; “conservative Christians” swoon.
If there’s one thing that American “conservative Christians” have been conditioned to love, it’s war. War overseas, of course – the kind that you can take in via Fox News from the relative safety and comfort of your rented-from-the-State-to-fund-State-controlled-children’s-“education” home here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA. (See: How […]
How Jeb Bush despises privacy and freedom for the masses…yet will still get millions of “conservative Christian” votes (and campaign contributions).
There are roughly 2.4 gajillion good reasons to not vote for Jeb (or any other) Bush to “lead” us (or anyone else that we care about), but one of the best has to be his open, flagrant, bone-chillingly creepy adoration of the emerging Orwellian State in America. The man simply despises in practice the core values […]
So Sony supposedly got “hacked” by North Korea…or Russia…or China…or some combination of the three. That’s the story, anyway. Confidential emails were subsequently leaked, relationships were compromised, and, ultimately, the opportunity for an apparently horrifyingly unfunny “comedy” (The Interview) to flop in a conventional manner was scuttled when it was pulled from conventional release as […]
[5/16/15: As open hostility toward biblical Christianity in America continues to ramp up, and with the enforced culture-wide embrace of sexual perversion building momentum, this seems like a useful post to revisit.] Okay, let’s see if we can connect the dots here: “Terror” is what the State and its tools tell us it is. It’s what ISIS, al-Qaeda, […]
“. . . the United States of America will remain the greatest force for freedom and human dignity that the world has ever known.” So ends today’s Statement by the President on the Report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The Senate report in question, known as “The Torture Report”, chronicles all sorts of activities […]
Privacy is for masters. Transparency is for slaves. Welcome to “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.
Are Americans free? Or are we not? Do Americans have privacy? Or do we not? Do Americans actually own land privately? (See: “property tax”/rent-to-the-State) Or do we not? Do Americans live in anything resembling a “free market”? Or is the money printed out of thin air by a very few used to own and control […]
Barack Obama. Joel Osteen. Barack Obama…Joel Osteen… Now what could these two possibly have in common? Hrmmmm… Maybe the better question to many of us would be to ask what they don’t have in common. After all, for those of us with a biblical worldview and the naturally following conservative political bent, we tend to view these men in […]
If the incredible rate of loss of freedom in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA isn’t inspiring profound concern and intense prayer for the fate of your families and your children’s futures…then please, ditch the football/circus distraction, dive into Truth, and start acting like an adult this weekend. There’s still […]
As global economic foundations continue to crack and crumble, this sort of thing is just gonna happen…again and again. War, war, and more war. Enemies here, there, and everywhere. Of course, we fund, fuel, and train most of those enemies, but let’s not stop to notice that. Nope. Nothing to see here… Just prior to Mitt Romney’s glorious Washington Post […]
What does it look like when the people of a land abandon the Gospel and openly oppose the Great Commission of the Church to “make disciples of all the nations” and teach those disciples to do all that the Lord has commanded in His perfect Word? What does it feel like to live in a land captivated […]
What if I told you that the southern U.S. border crisis, the pending U.S. invasion of Syria, the ongoing murderous rampage of ISIS/Islamic State in Iraq, and the pending eruption of similar acts right here in the U.S. were all clearly and purposefully connected? Well, if you’re like me, you might be depressed (or […]
You might be a Socialist Republican if…you routinely vote for candidates who have no intention of actually dismantling Social Security, Medicaid, and the rest of the Welfare State. You might be a Socialist Republican if…you are a fan of programs like Social Security and Medicaid. You might be a Socialist Republican if…you believe that State-controlled “education” of […]
A.W. Tozer once said that “Christians don’t tell lies, they just go to church and sing them”. Sad and true as that observation may be, lying to one’s self by song is hardly an affliction unique to believers. It’s human nature to imagine that uncomfortable truths aren’t really true at all or, if they are, that […]
