The Problem with People Fleeing Leftist States

A huge shift in the American population is currently taking place. Millions of people are moving out of high-crime and high-tax liberal states, and they are relocating to states that are mostly run by conservative governments. The states that are bleeding residents are California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and Connecticut.

A couple months ago, podcaster Joe Rogan said he was moving to Texas to get away from California. He cited overpopulation, traffic, and “the need for freedom” being a few of the reasons he has been persuaded to move from his current home of Los Angeles.

Ben Shapiro has also had enough of California. The conservative writer and broadcaster, born in L.A., just announced that he is heading to Nashville, Tennessee. “I love the state, grew up in the state, married in the state, and have had children in the state,” he told Laura Ingraham. But California was “not a great place to raise children and not a great place to build a company.” Now we know the true meaning of Calexit. It’s not secession. It’s exodus.

“We’ve been asked over and over and over again when we would leave California. The answer: now. See you in Nashville, gang! I’ve lived my entire life in California. Within weeks, we’ll be taking our 75 jobs and leaving. We’re not the first. And we certainly won’t be the last. Terrible governance has consequences,” said Shapiro.

This whole issue of people running away from social problems has already taken place. In the 60s, social programs promoted minorities to move into white urban cities. As the crime rate soared, whites fled the city, and the cycle of implosion increased. Detroit went from the richest city in our nation to one that declined into bankruptcy.

It’s hard to understand why cities would have a dozen Democratic mayors in a row that have failed to turn the tide of failure, and the people keep electing the same party. I was shocked to learn last year that Chicago has a zero chance of electing a Republican mayor because there are no conservative candidates in any race.

This obedience to the liberal agenda translates to people moving from one state to another. The people that decided to escape California for a better state are going to maintain the same voting record that was the reason for them moving. People that move to Texas from California will tend to support leftist candidates. Since Dallas, Austin and Houston have already become leftist-controlled zones, it may only take a few 100,000 new residents from the Golden State to turn Texas blue.

If Texas and Florida become blue states, the nation will become a one-party system. At that point, all 50 states will become just like California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and Connecticut. The next step in escaping the madness is to move to another country; but few people have the economic resource to relocate outside the U.S.

The only way we will be able to save America from leftist policies is for people to realize they don’t work and vote en masse for change. New York Mayor Bill De Blasio has clearly failed at his job. His COVID-19 policies have destroyed 60% of the city’s retail space. He hates his own police force while showing only love for the Black Lives Matters Marxists.

De Blasio thinks that higher taxes on the rich is the cure for all problems. “What changes thing is the redistribution of wealth. Tax the wealthy at a much higher rate,” said De Blasio. This reminds me of an old joke: A Socialist walks into a bar and says, “The drinks are on me! Who’s buying?”

Voters will have a lot of choices to make this November, from picking a president and a U.S. senator to dozens of state representatives and local judges. But one of the most important decisions before Illinois voters will be Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s “Fair Tax” amendment.

The ballot initiative will ask voters to approve a change to the state constitution that will allow lawmakers to set a graduated income tax rather than the flat tax that currently exists. According to Democratic lawmakers, 97% of Illinoisans would end up paying less.

The rich are already fleeing the state because Illinois is one of the highest tax rates in the nation. Raising the tax rate another 8% is only going to speed up the exit. Since the government always gets what it needs to operate from taxpayers, that promise to the 97% will quickly turn into a lie.

America’s problems have become so profound, it is hard to expect the voting process could ever be used to set things straight. Any type of political reform would need to come from the churches. The key cause of our troubles is that we have collectively allowed evil people to rule over us.

“When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan” (Proverbs 29:2 ESV).

Pope and “Mother Earth”

As we as a generation of inhabitants of Planet Earth pierce ever more deeply into the end of the age, the picture of the emerging Tribulation world order comes into view. Presently that view is in the process of tightening into high-definition focus.

We adjust the knobs of that focus with our new book.

LAWLESS: The End-Times War Against the Spirit of Antichrist, we believe, makes clear and in sharp relief against the darkening, prophetic skies that the evil and chaos being churned marks this as the very end of this dispensation.

This is a book of compilation. That is, seventeen authors –all top Bible prophecy writers, broadcasters, speakers, and teachers—have contributed chapters. Each has written in depth on matters dealing with the lawlessness we’ve been witnessing and what it all means. It is, I believe, truly a book for these troubled though exciting times just before Christ calls the Church to Himself. (The book will be released, Lord willing, sometime in October.)

I begin the book in my introduction with the following:

Planet earth needs a savior. This declaration is at the center of the demand by true believers that all people of this endangered sphere must acknowledge. Those deniers—nonbelievers—are branded as her­etics. Those in denial of this unimpeachable assertion deserve to be, at the very least, incarcerated for their denial.

This mantra is central to the religious fervor of today. But, it is not the religious fervor of those who adhere to truth found in God’s Word, the Bible. The zealots who hold to this theology are, from heaven’s per­spective, lawless in their anti-God demands. The elitists in government and the news and entertainment media who believe man is destroying the planet and only man can stop the destruction. There is no God to be considered in the controls they intend to exert.

And it is indeed religious zealotry. It is for certain a theological mantra that festers at the lawless hearts of those who rave about climate change and mankind destroying the planet through wanton disregard for the wel­fare of Mother Earth.

Right on schedule, a global religious leader has emerged to the forefront of prophetic stage-setting. He has been instrumental in igniting the fever for the global warming (now “climate change”) fanaticism we see developing. Many, even among top Catholic clergy, have expressed they believe this man could be the final pope. A number among those believe him to possibly be the false prophet—the second beast—of Revelation chapter 13.

I don’t go that far. But certainly this man who came to papal power in such strange fashion exhibits characteristics of one who denies truth and leads the flock astray. Pope Francis has, for example, stated that even atheists will one day be in Heaven. He has said such things as all religions should pray to their gods for relief from COVID-19. He has said there are other ways to Heaven than through Jesus Christ. He has called for world governmental authority over all people. I have all these declarations documented in my files. These are not false accusations.

This pope has made no secret of his disdain for the current president and his administration. Trump’s anti-globalist, “Make America Great Again,” determination has driven the one-worlders into frenzy. Pope Francis is proving to be their champion, as demonstrated by the following news excerpt.

Pope Francis asked Christians to care about creation, saying that the abuse of ecosystems is a “grave sin” while lamenting the negative impacts of global warming and targeting President Trump “everyone abusing the ecosystem should be held accountable.”

We must look after our common home, “to the earth and to every creature,” the pope said during a speech in the Vatican’s San Damaso, “all forms of life are interconnected, and our health depends on that of the ecosystems that God created and entrusted to us to care for.”

“Abusing them, on the other hand, is a grave sin that damages us, and harms us, and makes us sick,” he explained.

“Everyone who abuses the ecosystem and avoids accepting the fact that our ‘common home’ is in danger should be held accountable,” the pope stated referring to President Donald Trump.

“It is easy to fall prey to an unbalanced and arrogant anthropocentrism, the ‘I’ at the centre of everything, which gives excessive importance to our role as human beings, positioning us as absolute rulers of all other creatures,” he continued.

“A distorted interpretation of biblical texts on creation has contributed to this misinterpretation, which leads to the exploitation of the earth to the point of suffocating it,” he added.

“Exploiting creation: this is the sin. We believe that we are at the centre, claiming to occupy God’s place and so we ruin the harmony of creation, the harmony of God’s plan,” the pope explained.

“We become predators, forgetting our vocation as custodians of life,” the pope continued…

Our poorest brothers and sisters and our mother earth lament for the damage and injustice we have caused, and demand we take another course,” he added. “demands of us a conversion, a change of path; taking care of the earth too, of creation.” (“Pope Francis Takes Aim At President Trump In A Recent Speech: ‘Abusing The Ecosystem Is A Grave Sin, Trump Should Be Held Accountable’,” ConsROOM, Rapture Ready News, September 18, 2020)

I write further in my introduction to LAWLESS: The End Times War Against the Spirit of Antichrist:

Mother Earth worship is the central unifying concept the father of lies has perpetrated that fits most propitiously within this spirit of Antichrist model. Branding against deniers of climate change as being the worst sinners within the religion of humanism is designed to make Christianity appear to be a false worship system. This is because the Bible declares that Jesus Christ, who is the very Word of God (John 1:1–3), is who has this earthly orb in His grip. It is not man who controls planet earth.

This, of course, is antithesis to the unimpeachable declarations of the environmental gurus who say man is destroying the earth with green­house gases from carbon emission. Only man, himself, through draconian actions to stop these deadly gases, can save himself from choking to death from unbreathable air or drowning because of the melting ice of the North and South poles.

Make no mistake, denial of God’s truth regarding creation and Jesus Christ is at the black heart of the lawlessness and evil comportment we are experiencing. The young are especially affected and infected by this Antichrist spirit. The rebellion is prophetically scheduled to get worse—much worse, and climate-change fervor will increase the nearer the age draws to the time of Tribulation.

While we move through this election season and watch the evil become increasingly worse, let us acknowledge that there is only satanic deception within the “Mother Earth” delusion being foisted particularly upon the young minds among us. Let us take the apostle Paul’s exhortation to heart:

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (1 Timothy 2:1–6)

Pedophilia: The Last Sin to Go

There are many end-time prophetic signs pointing us to the nearness of the tribulation hour. In the last few years, I have noticed a warning that is related to the general state of our society. Our generation has simply run out of sins to violate.

Around 100 years ago, preachers were proclaiming dancing, stores being opened on Sunday and Jazz music as an indication that the world was given over to the devil. Today, grievous sins like gay marriage, hardcore drug use, and late-term abortion are viewed as lost causes by most churches.

The only sin I can think of that is still seen as a moral taboo is Pedophilia. In the past few months, I’ve seen strong indication that Satan’s minions are rapidly chipping away at this depravity.

A new California law will lower penalties for sexual relations with minor. The bill, SB 145, removed the requirement for offenders to register as a sex offender after committing certain sex acts with minors within a 10-year age difference. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the former mayor of San Francisco, was widely praised in the press for signing this bill into law.

State Senator Scott Wiener, who introduced the bill, claims it is meant to treat LGBT offenders the same as heterosexual offenders. His crazy logic centers on there being more homosexual pedophiles than heterosexual pedophiles, so they need greater protection.

“This distinction between vaginal intercourse and other forms of intercourse is a relic of California’s discriminatory past, and it’s time to bring an end to it,” said Weiner.

Wiener continued: “Going on the sex-offender registry can ruin a young person’s life, making it harder for them to find a job and housing. We need to put an end to this terrible discrimination.”

The internet movie site Netflix generated outrage when it ran a promotion for a movie called “Cutie.” The graphic that first promoted the film strongly implied that the company was expanding into the world of child porn. The movie has eleven-year-old girls twerking, spanking themselves, and doing all manner of sensual dance routines.

Maïmouna Doucouré, the film’s director, claims the movie “is in fact a critique of the sexualization of children, specifically the Internet’s role in it.” The claim that “depiction does not equal endorsement” doesn’t work here. If someone makes a movie that shows a graphic rape scene, they can’t escape the porn label by saying the movie is against rape.

It doesn’t matter if the many characters of “Cutie” see the error of their ways at the end. The movie is gross, and anyone distributing it should be sent to jail. If you read the reviews for this movie, you have 90% of the Hollywood critics defending it against any pearl-clutching conservatives.

One of the most crafty ways the enemy is normalizing pedophilia in our society is through child drag queens. One called ‘Desmond is Amazing’ has been the subject of many news articles. Desmond Napoles is a 13-year-old boy, and he has been doing drag in gay bars since age six. A kid shouldn’t be in a bar, let alone a gay bar. One video showed him dancing on stage, disrobing of some clothes, and then taking cash from men several times his own age.

Desmond’s mother is the clear source of his misguided behavior. She just happened to have a fixation with historic pin-up girls. She took him to gay pride parades, and they watched shows on drag. Anyone blaming her for the sexualization of a child is disputed by the odd fact that she knew he was gay since age two. I can see why the lives of so many of these so-called gay kids end in suicide. It is my hope that he attempts to emancipate himself from his mother when he realizes he’s straight and has no real interest in the gay lifestyle.

Child Protective Services should have gotten active years ago. If Desmond’s mother had asked him if he wanted to try smoking crack cocaine, there would be no dispute over who’s to blame for him becoming a drug addict. Somehow a kid who has not even gone through puberty is judged fit to serve as the grand marshal of Brooklyn’s 2019 pride parade.

The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah have become synonymous with extreme depravity and immorality. Since our generation is facing the Great Tribulation wrath, on judgment day, the citizens of those towns may rise up and say, we were never as demented as these people.

“Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day” (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10).

Paul Speaks to Us

Bombardment every waking moment, through constantly churning news cycles, presents an ominous unfolding that can’t be missed by the truly spiritually attuned Christian. We’re well into the “end of days,” as the secular writers and other pundits like to term it.

We’re seeing in geopolitics the powers and principalities in their high places of wickedness doing all within their considerable abilities to bring about global government. Satan’s one-world effort to establish his Antichrist regime is well underway. Only God’s restraining hand has kept the devil from being able to complete his prophesied task—to bring to earthly power the first and second beasts of Revelation chapter 13.

In these commentaries, we’ve talked about this luciferian effort and the Lord’s staying hand at work to delay its implementation. The effort at that implementation has been especially aggressive within the United States. Attempts to bring down the American president who is anti-globalist in every respect has been almost beyond description or even belief.

In the religious realm, we’ve seen a marked refusal to stand up against the evil going on within society and culture. There is well underway an apostasy of the first order. The “falling away,” in terms of departure from faith among a growing number of Christian ministries, is made clear in the lack of opposition offered from the pulpits to that proliferating evil.

The current pope has endorsed the apostate declaration that all will eventually be in Heaven for eternity, no matter whether saint, agnostic, or atheist. He has embraced climate change as part of the growing trend toward the worship of Mother Earth. Whether Catholic or Protestant, many of the clergy in what is called Christendom are either totally in for, or totally silent on, the issues within the social justice movement so in vogue today.

Regarding those social justice issues, the apostle Paul’s words of forewarning can almost be heard echoing down through the corridors of this eerie time in history. Perilous times are indeed with us—again—every waking moment while we get the hourly and even minute-by-minute news reports from the nation and from around the world.

Paul, in 2 Timothy 3, is, it seems to me, speaking directly to this generation when he says:

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.

Let’s look at a few of these characteristics of end-times humans as the great apostle gives them and as we think on our experience as of late.

“Blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy”

Video and audio of the rioters in the various cities they have destroyed, burned, and looted contain some of the most blasphemous language imaginable. They are so vulgar, so blasphemous, that one hears almost a constant beeping the news organizations use to keep from violating broadcast etiquette and regulations.

Many of these are pampered Millennials who are college students that have never been disadvantaged in any way. They directly disrespect parents and rules of civil comportment. They exemplify Paul’s terms “unthankful” and “unholy.”

“False accusers, incontinent, fierce”

The anarchists who join the likes of Black Lives Matter and Antifa are traitorous to the nation that gave them the privileges they now violently protest. These are Communist/Marxist organizations that hate everything about America and foment its destruction. Those who, like the “useful idiots” Marx wrote about, “falsely accuse” people of America in general and the police across the country of wanting to murder people of color, particularly African Americans. These arsonists and thugs are “incontinent”—that is, they are unwilling and/or unable to control their desires to commit these insane acts of rage. They are “fierce” and launch bricks, bottles of frozen water, and Molotov cocktails at police and even at owners of private property and businesses.

All of this demonstrates, I believe we should conclude, that we are in the very last hours of this fleeting age. We must, of course, defend against the forces that want to destroy and even kill to do the service of their master, the devil. But, even though it is difficult to understand all involved in His Instruction, Jesus has an even stronger defense for us to follow while we guard against those who would do us harm. We must obey Him no matter what, and leave all the consequences to Him.

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. (Luke 6: 27–28)
