The Prospects of President Bernie Sanders
I had already planned to write this article over the likelihood of Bernie Sanders having a strong show, winning the Iowa Caucuses. When I learned from the internet that the whole event was turning into a fiasco, I turned on CNN and laughed for Two hours straight. The next days, the clown-car Iowa Democrat party finally said Sanders had more votes than the other candidates.
It is absolute insanity to have a man who is a Communist being the front-runner of a major party. Sanders and the press like to use the soft label of socialist, but his history shows that he is a “card- carrying” commie. Bernie admitted He didn’t mind being called ‘A Communist’ during a 1972 Run for Governor of Vermont. After all, this is a man who honeymooned in the Soviet Union back in 1988.
The odd quality that draws people to him is that he is consistent with his views. He claims he still has the same political beliefs he’s had since 1963. His 1976 call for the nationalization of most major industries still stands. “I favor the public ownership of utilities, banks and major industries,” Sanders said in one interview with the Burlington Free Press. He also proposed a 100% income tax on the highest income earners in America.
It’s amazing that the Stock Market did not drop 800 points the day after he and three other leftists made a strong showing in Iowa. If Sanders is going to have a 30% rise of taxes on companies and stockholders, the value of these holders should be nearly cut in half. If his climate-change regulation drives all the oil companies into bankruptcy, 30% of zero equals zero.
What drives the young people to his rallies is the promise of goodies. Sanders promises the wiping out of student loan debts and free medical care for all. We’ll just add that 1.4 trillion of student loan debt to our federal tab of 23.2 trillion. The medical bills will run free until the world cuts us off by refusing to buy our Treasury IOUs.
The general image of socialism is people joining together to share equally with each other in love. In reality, this movement naturally draws people who are sadists. History teaches us that because socialism requires the use of force, the greatest human atrocities ever committed have been inflicted by socialist governments. Out of the graves of 145 million people will come the cry that socialism is a lie:
70 million killed in China
60 million killed in USSR
4 million killed in Cambodia
5 million killed in North Korea
1 million killed in Yugoslavia
1 million killed in Ethiopia
1 million killed in Indonesia
800,000 killed in Rwanda
The Sanders campaign organization is full of people who would spark revolutionary acts in a moment’s notice. In South Carolina, Project Veritas provided the following highlights of things that Sanders campaign field organizer Mason Baird allegedly said:
“I’ve canvassed with someone who’s an anarchist, and with someone who’s a Marxist-Leninist. So, we attract radical, truly radical people in the campaign … obviously that’s not outward-facing.”
“We would need a federal government and a labor movement that is working together to strip power away from the capitalists and preferably directing that violence towards property.”
“It would, it’s gonna take, you know, it’s gonna take militancy … like a militant labor movement that’s willing to … strike, and if necessary, you know, just destroy property and things like that.”
“… after we abolish landlords, we don’t have to kill them …”
I ask myself why Bernie Sanders is not being asked tough questions about his basic views, and I know they are never going to be challenged. The demonic forces that protect him turn people away from a logic question like: If you tax away 100% of someone’s income, why would they continue to work? Never mind that Bernie’s dangerous Communist ideas failed dozens of times in the past 20 years, people want to give them a fresh try.
The Sanders organization has already said that if Bernie should win the Presidency, they would hit the ground running with dozens of presidential executive orders. Many of these will be unconstitutional. Some are so radical in nature, they would do profound damage to America before they could be reversed. Since Sanders said he would move to open the border to all comers, we would have millions of people pouring into the nation before the Supreme Court could restore order.
I hope that if Sanders is in a face-off with Trump, he gets absolutely creamed in the November election. The average citizen has become so removed from Godly wisdom that it is possible for our nation to vote in a Communist. Since the Bible promises the enemies of God a brief window of victory, the rapture may occur right before the election, which would be fitting of the Lord to leave the left with a hollow victory.

Perdition’s Propagandists Prep School
It has been taking place for decades, even longer. The American and world public have become anesthetized, or at the very least numbed, to the effects. At least half of this nation’s population seems to be in a near-comatose state, in consideration of what is right and wrong in terms of what the founding fathers meant in establishing a constitutional republic.
I refer to the incessant propagandizing of the people by a news conglomerate that mimics in most every way the Big Brother news leviathan of George Orwell’s novel 1984. The author invented the term “doublespeak,” defined as language that deliberately disguises, distorts, or reverses meaning to further an agenda, often by governments, corporations, marketers, or other power structures.
The novel tells of a socially stratified, post-nuclear war world ruled by three superstates—Oceania, Eastasia, and Eurasia. The ruling elite keep the “trolls” under their oppressive governmental thumb. These are the worker bees who are given just enough entertainment and mind-altering things to imbibe to keep their noses to the grindstone of serving the state and to keep their minds off the machinations of those who govern them.
We have, since the late 1950s, and even before then, been victims of the emergence of Orwell’s 1949 vision of a dystopian, news-propaganda monster. It appears that perhaps two-thirds of the American populace has fallen into Orwell’s “troll” category within today’s political process.
Perhaps this figure is a bit of an exaggeration, but the astonishing disconnect is troubling. According to reactions I see in the matter of people understanding whether information they get is reality or propaganda, no other conclusion can be reached. Millions are falling for the lies that they should be allowed to do what is right in their own eyes. Anyone who holds up biblical or even constitutional founding principles as the way we should comport ourselves is met with angry protestation.
Those of us who believe abortion, homosexuality, use of illicit drugs, pornography, fornication, adultery, and other such evils are wrong, are seen by a vast section of the nation’s population as the evil side of American society and culture.
We have witnessed the Orwellian-like news organizations of our day in action. These join that vast number in pigeonholing Christians and “moralists,” as they would have it, into a corner they call “hate-mongering.”
A campaign planner of one political party’s candidates recently called all who oppose the leftist-agenda Nazis. He then proceeded to, in Hitler-Aryan fashion, tell those around him what he will do to that opposition once his party wins. He said he would summarily kill some and put others in gulag. The rest would go into reeducation camps to get their minds right. The mainstream, Orwellian news media, so far as I can determine, said nothing to condemn this campaign planner’s rhetoric.
Evil doesn’t change. The rhetoric, under the right conditions, will become murderous implementation when opportunity arises.
There are still those with satanic-controlled minds who would perpetrate on Americans the same sort of atrocities the Nazi beasts inflicted upon the Jews and other victims of those days.
There is coming a time, God’s Word foretells, when people will fall totally for the doublespeak and newspeak of those horrendous times. The ultimate Big Brother will forge a regime so powerful and evil in influence that no one, in human terms, can resist. He will have the consummate propaganda machine to brainwash and reinforce his dictatorship’s absolute control. His minions are now being prepared, in my view, to carry out his inculcation of the “trolls” of that Tribulation time. They will be all who are left behind because of their unbelief when Christ calls believers in the Rapture.
Today’s mainstream news organizations are acting as a prep school for inflicting the future lies of the son of perdition. So it is not too far-fetched to see a bit into the future and apply prophetic Scripture, based upon what we see developing at present. The nation and world are being prepared for the ultimate manifestation of the Orwellian world the author forecast with the release of his 1949 novel.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition…Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:3, 9–12)
You don’t have to be among the “trolls.” Accept Christ right this moment. You will go instantaneously to be with Jesus Christ in an atomos of time—faster than the eye can blink—when He says “Come up here!” (Revelation 4:1).
To hear Him when He calls, follow the Apostle Paul’s soul-saving instruction:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9–10)
