Principalities Of Darkness… :: By Bill Wilson

Principalities Of Darkness/America Losing Stigma About Communism 

Principalities of Darkness Within Human Flesh

All the talk about Russian collusion and whether President Donald Trump was in cahoots with the Russians to win the 2016 Presidential election is a ploy in so many ways. There were communists in key positions of the so-called investigation of Trump’s ties with Russia who were trying to overturn an election. Hillary Clinton is no saint. We know her immoral and unethical doings, but perhaps we need to closely look at the attempt by the deep state community to use willing Russian agents to destabilize the election and the US government to keep control of the White House—a non-military coup aimed at maintaining a power that is foreign to the voting public. This is not a conspiracy theory.

Three key players in the Russian Influence con were (former) FBI Director James Comey, (former) CIA Director John Brennan, and (former) National Intelligence Director James Clapper. They are all master manipulators, deep state intel veterans. Comey, Brennan, and Clapper were appointed by Barack Obama. All three also were connected to the George W Bush Administrations in various ways.

Recall that after the 2016 election, the New York Post reported that the outgoing president was establishing a shadow government to maintain power through a series of nonprofits, government insiders and appointed judges in the court system. Most know that these three actors were intimately involved in trying to take down the newly-elected president. What you may not have known is a shocking revelation of these perilous times.

Washington Times columnist Robert Knight and author Diana West have revealed a legitimate communist concern surrounding these men:

Knight reports that West, in her book “The Red Thread,” documents that Brennan and Comey were communists. West documents Brennan’s September 16, 2016 “admission of voting for the Communist Party USA ticket in 1976” during testimony before the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.

Knight reports that Comey admitted identifying as a Communist when he was a young man, and “still reveres Marxist theologian Reinhold Niebuhr as his spiritual lodestar.”

Clapper told the House Intelligence Committee in 2011 that the terrorist-sponsoring Muslim Brotherhood was “secular” and that it had no “overarching agenda.”

The Clinton-Bush-Obama one-world-order machinations materially changed the gears of government and instituted a deep state system counter to majority rule. This system uses various means and actors to cause strife, contention, and awe to disrupt the will of the electorate. It is the deepest, darkest evil of what is now known as the “swamp.”

Habakkuk 1:4 says that because strife exists and contention arises, “Therefore the law is slacked, and justice does never go forth: for the wicked does surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.”

These godless coup-makers and their minions are in a death struggle to impose their will. Any who threaten it will suffer consequences. Be mindful that Christianity is an ultimate threat because it is the antithesis of the control and bondage these usurpers wish to oversee.

America Losing Soviet-Era Stigma About Communism

Azios reports a Harris poll for “Axios on HBO” finds that socialism is gaining popularity as 4 in 10 Americans say they would prefer living in a socialist country over a capitalist one. This corroborates a Gallup poll in April that some 43% of Americans believed socialism is good for America. Axios reports that it is significant that socialism is losing its Soviet-era stigma, especially among women: “Popular Democratic socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders are bringing new life and meaning to the term.” The Harris poll indicated that “55% of women between 18 and 54 would prefer to live in a socialist country than a capitalist country. But a majority of men prefer to live in a capitalist country.”

The Gallup poll indicated “a majority of Democrats have said they view socialism positively in Gallup polling since 2010, including 57% in the most recent measure in 2018.” The Gallup survey also found that nearly 30% of Americans want government distribution of wealth, 35% want government responsibility for wages, and 33% want government control over the economy.

Interesting that these percentages coincide with the percentage of the population who are also registered Democrats, although the Gallup survey did not distinguish party affiliation. The Harris poll shows that Americans are accepting of socialism despite 49% understanding that it is a system dependent on dictatorship.

The Communist Manifesto says, “But communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.” Other linchpins of communism are enumerated in the Manifesto: 1) Abolition of property ownership, 2) a heavy progressive income tax, 3) abolition of all rights of inheritance, 4) confiscation of property, 5) centralization of credit, 6) centralization of transportation, 7) centrally planned economy, 8) obligation to work, 9) abolishing distinction between towns and country, and 10) a free education for children.

Since World War I, America has been on the slippery slope toward socialism.

The goal of Soviet Russia was to infiltrate American values with the destructive social goals of the Communist Manifesto. Former Soviet KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov, who defected from the Soviet Union in 1970, was interviewed in 1984 about Soviet infiltration methods. He said that by 1970 the Soviet Union already had infiltrated the US through brainwashing left-leaning people in the news media, entertainment, politics, business, education, and religion.

Progressives are the new communists. Government replaces God.

Exodus 20:3 says, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

People need to be educated about Soviet-era communism so those who are ignorant of its ramifications are aware. The coup before us is against the Constitutional government of this country, including the freedoms of religion and speech.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

America Past and Present :: By Holly Spate

As we get ready to celebrate the birth of our nation this July 4th, I can’t help but think back over the years and reminisce. My heart dearly misses the days when God was welcome in our country. I miss the patriotism that seemed to resonate in every heart and the appreciation for our many blessings, freedoms, and our one-of-a-kind nation. A nation richly blessed because of God and God alone.

I miss the respect among fellow citizens and respect for our laws which seek to protect our country. I miss personal accountability, private matters remaining private, and a high standard of morals. I miss the days when people were allowed to express their opinion without someone waiting in the wings ready to pass laws to silence opposing voices.

I miss a government made up of more individuals who brought conscience, morality, and true selfless service to its citizens. I miss good manners and people thinking more of others than themselves.

I miss the days when Hollywood had less award ceremonies to congratulate themselves! I miss the days before reality tv and am disgusted by all the voyeurism and trash that it’s created which has cheapened our society. I miss wholesome tv programs and the family unit being cherished, respected and celebrated. I miss the fact that practically every movie that comes out for kids isn’t rated G, but PG.

I miss the days when people dressed modestly and left something to the imagination. I miss true role models, not the many today who are esteemed for their narcissistic, coarse behavior who have added to the dumbing down and degrading of our society.

I miss people showing respect to our flag, our customs, our traditions and having hearts of gratitude for living here. I miss the days before social media when real communication between individuals grew relationships. It saddens my heart that people are missing out on the art of real communication, real interaction and connection.

I miss the days when good was seen as good, and evil rightly condemned as evil.

I miss the America that is fading.

Many of you may be thinking…this writer must be on in years to be writing about the good ole days. But, I was actually born in the 70’s; and in my lifetime I grew up in an America that is different from the America I live in now.

We felt safe riding our bikes in our neighborhood. We went to church, had family dinners around the table, were taught to respect our elders and teachers. We said the Pledge of Allegiance in school. We learned about our country’s real history, not a rewritten politically correct version. We didn’t have cell phones, social media or the internet. We sat around and talked with friends and spent quality time together with our families.

We didn’t boost our self-esteem through how many “likes” we got, but rather understood that respect and self-esteem come from being a good person and being selfless in our actions. We understood personal accountability and did not hold everyone accountable for one person’s actions. We were not “politically correct” and didn’t apologize for being so.

It’s amazing how much has changed in such a short time. As time moves forward, the push has never seemed greater for opposing forces to replace all that’s good and moral with all that’s degrading and evil. The voices of those wanting to silence all that’s decent, especially Christian values, seem bolder and louder with each passing day.

I know, as a Christian, that America has never been a utopia. I’m not naive to think that everything’s been perfect, nor have I viewed America through rose-colored glasses. I realize, in this fallen world, there’s always been sin. There’s always been evil, but it’s become so much more prevalent…so much more out in the open… so much more celebrated. Our nation has changed so much from the nation I grew up in. It seems within the last 10-15 years things have rapidly declined.

Despite all the unwelcome changes, I’m so thankful that there are still so many people in our country that continue to cherish their God-given freedoms and blessings…so many who continue to uplift and hold to all that is moral and good. So many who still sit around the dinner table and have meaningful conversations.

So many who still go to church, gather for potlucks, and enjoy family time together. So many who are still kind, friendly, appreciative, selfless and respectful. So many who are still willing to sacrifice and give their all, even if that means giving their life so we all can remain free.

Thankfully, there are still many who will watch the fireworks this 4th of July and be truly moved and truly grateful for all God’s done. I am especially thankful for those who still recognize that America has only been great because God is good.

Even though things are drastically different and today’s America does not resemble yesterday’s, I know my family and I are still blessed to live in the U.S.A.

And moving forward, I have full assurance and peace that although America may have changed, our God has not! Our true home still awaits us, and for that I am forever thankful, and my heart can always rejoice!

Happy Independence Day, Everyone!

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).
