Fascism in America

Most people would find it hard to recognize examples of fascism in our modern society because it is most associated with the brand that Adolf Hitler fostered in the 30’s and 40’s. Fascism is not about goose stepping and military conquest. It’s about the centralization of power over all facets of people’s lives. Here is the definition of fascism:

A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

I was going to title my article “Fascism Coming to America,” but I don’t think that is the case. Because I see numerous examples of fascism in our nation now, my warning cry is that it is here now.

Recent action by the FBI clearly shows it has been overrun by “Gestapo tactics.” Those are the words Roger Stone used to describe the pre-dawn raid at his Florida home, where 29 agents stormed his house with guns drawn. Stone said the number of agents who were involved was unnecessary because he does not own a firearm and does not pose a flight risk because his passport is expired.

“I’ve been under investigation for two years. I have destroyed nothing. But if I were going to destroy evidence, wouldn’t I have done it a long time ago?” he said. “They could simply have called my lawyers, and I would have turned myself in,” said Stone

It should be quite clear by now that the FBI is out of control when all these people who worked for Trump have been targeted by Robert Mueller with criminal accusations that have nothing to do with Russian spying. Everyone who has been arrested in the probe has primarily been charged with lying. There is no concern about the whole investigation being a Witch Hunt aimed at Trump because the press and the Democrats have provided endless support to Mueller.

There is a mountain of evidence that leads to Hillary Clinton’s direct ties to Russian criminal activity. The FBI has worked with leftist judges to use fascist tactics to cover up these paper trails that lead to the Clinton’s. On Nov. 15, federal Magistrate Judge Stephanie Gallagher authorized a raid on Dennis Cain’s Union Bridge, Maryland, home.

Four days later, Cain was confronted with 16 FBI agents who entered and rummaged through his home for six hours. He informed the lead FBI agent that he was a protected whistleblower, but the raid commenced anyway. The documents that were taken from Cain’s home were sealed by U.S. District Court of Maryland’s Chief Magistrate Judge Beth P. Gesner, a Clinton appointee, who also sealed her justification for keeping the documents secret.

The FBI works for President Trump, and he could ask the Justice Department to review its arrest policies. Because Washington has become this giant monster, Trump’s hands are tied in controlling agencies that come under the Executive branch.

The 35-day budget battle was another indication of fascism in our federal government. The impasse lasted a record amount of time because the Democrats have become totally focused on power. They see everyone who illegally crosses the border as a future Democratic voter. With 60% of Hispanic immigrants eventually becoming Democratic Party members, I can see why Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer don’t want a wall.

President Trump might as well invoke emergency powers over the building of the border wall. He would have a better chance fighting in the courts than trying to negotiate with people who would gladly let people starve than surrender political authority.

The upcoming 2020 election looks very alarming from our current vantage point. The left is frantically focused in their quest to defeat Trump and implement regulations that would nationalize huge sections of our economy. The current crop of Democratic candidates is in a bidding war over who will take the most from the rich. They don’t care if they turn the US into another Venezuela. As long as they remain part of the elite, they’ll continue to live in luxury.

John Stuart Mill is the origin of the phrase, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” I am just stunned to see how evil our nation has become; and yet, the so-called church gives only token objection to moral corruption.

Because fascism is an endless quest for power, it produces horrifying amounts of depravity. A week ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a state law that allowed for the murder of children right up to the point of birth. Days later, Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam came under fire when he said a child could be killed right after birth.

Bible prophecy warns that in the last days all the nations will go down a path of destruction. Each person needs to reach out to God to find salvation.

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13).

“Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Mat. 7:14).

Cheerleaders for Antichrist

The chamber exploded in wild clapping, whistling, and thunderous applause that went on for a number of minutes. The cheering wasn’t for a national championship during the current frenzy over national championships, however.  The exultation was for the announcement that the New York state legislature had just passed the Reproductive Health Act.

New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo then signed the piece of legislation into law. In doing so, he–obviously greatly encouraged by the wild cheering of the legislators–gleefully said, “I am directing that New York’s landmarks be lit in pink to celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.”

He then proceeded to do just that, lighting the World Trade Tower in a brilliant, pink color.

He added, “The Reproductive Health Act is a historic victory for New Yorkers and for our progressive values.”

The ravenous jubilation over the “achievement” has at its center legitimizing the murder of babies, both in and out of their mother’s wombs, right up until the birth and beyond.

Attempts have been made for many years to get such legislation made into law. The Republican Senate, until now, managed to block the efforts. This time, with the Republican numbers insufficient to stop it, the assembly passed it 92-47.

One legislator summed up the law that takes away all rights of the unborn child to enjoy the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness:

“We have a president who’s made it very, very clear that he wants to overturn Roe v. Wade,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins declared before the vote. “Today, here in New York, we are saying no […] and we’re not just saying no. We’re saying that here in New York, women’s health matters. We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”

Ms Stewart thereby voiced, wittingly or unwittingly, the rebellious declaration that mankind has exhibited down through the millennia: We need no God to rule over us is the never-ending mantra while shaking a collective fist in the Almighty’s face.

The cheer that erupted in the New York legislature chamber that day instead–again, wittingly or unwittingly–was fulfilling Bible prophecy that will, perhaps very soon, bring rulership of the god of this world. Antichrist awaits in the shadowy wings of this ever-darkening time as the Tribulation looms. They were cheering for that man of sin who will give them not only the infanticide they think is such a glorious thing, but genocide that will force them to worship and obey him if they don’t want to be among those murdered. They are cheering on a holocaust of dimensions unimaginable, even when considering the horrendous one of Hitler’s making.

These are cheering the likes of Planned Parenthood, an organization inspired by Margaret Sanger, a woman with a globalist view who championed eugenics–the killing of inferior races, black people in particular–in order to bring about racial purity. Doing so, she proposed, was the way to perfect mankind. All dark races are, she postulated, inferior.

Hitler and the Nazi ideology absorbed her Satan-inspired madness.

With Mr. Cuomo’s blatant decision to light the World Trade tower in pink to honor the occasion and the women who see the murder of babies as a glorious thing,  thoughts, I must admit, sparked within my own mind: Will the Lord respond in some way to this unbelievably rebellious and deliberate shaking of the fist in His face?

I’m sure you might have entertained similar thoughts. To bathe in pink the Tower that replaced the Twin Towers where three thousand lost their lives seems not just a rebellious act by man, but an act of hatred against the Creator of all things inspired by the greatest of all rebels.

I guess the jury is still out on whether the Lord will, in the near term, respond in some way to this act of what seems to me the epitome of this generation’s depravity and ungodliness. Certainly, we can be absolutely assured that this and all sin will be dealt with in a heavenly-appropriate way on one eternal day. But, being human and quite vindictive in attitude at some points in my appraisal of things, I would like to… Well, I won’t verbalize it here because then you wouldn’t think of me as the saintly scrivener I would have myself to be in your eyes.

I receive emails weekly expressing that the senders long for the Rapture. They ask, rhetorically: Why has the Lord not put an end to all this evil, and taken us home?

The answer burns in my thoughts. There are billions of people on the planet who are being called by the Holy Spirit at every given moment. America, where the gospel has saturated culture and society for decades, is not Heaven’s only consideration. Millions around the world are God’s omniscient concern. Many are coming to Him for salvation daily. He, alone, knows when that final person to be born again into His family will accept Christ for salvation during this Age of Grace.

The Apostle Peter gave us a prophetic glimpse of our Lord’s ways and thoughts being high above our own, and of His patience with mankind:

Beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:7-11)

All that said, those who are–wittingly or unwittingly–cheerleaders for Antichrist are waging unholy warfare these days in ways that are portentous. It is a dangerous matter to shake a fist in His holy face.

He accepted me into His family through my repentance and belief in the death, burial and resurrection of His Son. He did the same for many of you reading this commentary. In the matter of being sinners, these who demonstrate a hatred for the God who created them are no worse sinners than were we. The Lord wants to welcome them into His eternal kingdom so they won’t have to endure the coming years of wrath He must pour upon those who remain rebels.

If you don’t know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ, turn to Him in repentance at this moment. It is just this simple.

“That if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and will believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

Racial Tension Ready to Snap

We live in a time of profound racial sensitivity. Anyone who is a public figure has to carefully choose every word that comes out of his or her mouth. My old congressman Steve King from Iowa learned of this danger when he openly questioned the meaning of the wrong phrases. “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” he said.

Within a few short days, King was labeled the “unapologetically racist” congressman, and he was stripped of all his House committee assignments by the Republican Party. He also received a formal rebuke from the full House in a vote that was 424-1, with only Democratic Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush voting no. Rush said he wanted to censure King instead – a stronger, but still largely symbolic, step.

A couple of other examples of politicians getting into trouble came during the 2018 election. Senator Ron DeSantis said Florida voters shouldn’t “monkey this up,” and Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith said, “If he (a supporter) invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the front row.” The problem in both cases was that their opponents were black. I thought it was beyond stupidity for the press to suggest that DeSantis somehow called his political foe a monkey, and Hyde-Smith was wanting to introduce racial hanging into the election.

Democrats have no need to walk on eggshells when it comes to using the wrong dog-whistle words. Former Vice President Joe Biden has a long history of major racial gaffes. He once praised President Obama for his cleanliness.

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said.

Biden has made other questionable comments. In a June 2006 appearance in New Hampshire, the senator commented on the growth of the Indian-American population in Delaware by saying, “You cannot go into a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. Oh, I’m not joking.”

Since Biden is the current frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic Primary, I’m looking forward for Joe to add to his record.

The reality of living in one of the most racially charged times in American history is that we have vast numbers of people absolutely fixated on finding even the slightest manifestation of discrimination. The news coverage of the stare-down between a Covington High School student and a Native American is a perfect example of this insanity. The incident took place after a pro-life march on the National Mall. The Catholic students were waiting for their bus, and they were being provoked by slurs from Black Hebrew Israelites, whose role in the confrontation wasn’t apparent in the viral footage.

The snapshot of Nicholas Sandmann with a smirk on his face and a “Make America Great Again” cap on his head was the product of selective editing. A longer view of the event shows that the Covington High School students had not acted in any harassing manner.

Several twitter personalities took the bait and attacked the students over their “racism.” University of Pennsylvania’s Ebony Elizabeth Thomas said “the smiling face of Whiteness” is one that “always hides a knife behind its back.” A writer for Saturday Night Live promised oral sex to anyone who punched Sandmann in the face.

According to the Washington, D.C., statute against disorderly conduct, these Black Hebrew Israelites were breaking the law by verbally attacking the boys in a public place. Because they are members of a protected class, they have nothing to fear from the police.

Some networks tried to back away from the label of Fake News by showing the full footage. Many networks decided the best defense is to simply press ahead with their false narrative. NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked Nick Sandmann for his guilt, “Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own fault in any way?” Sandmann should have turned the question around and asked Guthrie if she should be the one offering an apology.

The constant labeling of President Trump as a racist is a troubling indication of the madness that is overtaking our nation. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries referred to him as “the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” because he uses “racially insensitive remarks.” When you have people endlessly meditating on fantasy racial injustice, the end result will be total moral depravity. People like Jeffries will become so convinced of their own purity, they will be willing to kill to prove their earthly virtue.

“To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed” (Titus 1:15-16).

The Satanic Upside-Downing

Once again I come to the point in my pontificating that I admit to being sorely vexed. I understand  more and more the KJV’s description of Mr. Lot’s sense of hyper frustration. Like Lot just before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire and brimstone from Heaven, I am indeed sorely vexed.

I’ll bet you are, too.

It seems as if the world has been turned upside-down in many ways. It seems that way because it is, in fact, being done so on a daily, even an hourly, basis.

Just as there is a globalists-elite, all-out assault to invoke change  in world order from sovereign nation-states configuration to borderless, one-world status, there is effort to change you and me from freedom-loving people to slaves under their control. Even as the previous presidential administration’s hope and change promises proved to be part of the globalist agenda, the ongoing effort to turn everything upside-down continues–despite what I am convinced is God’s Holy Spirit restraint against what looks to be developing the most evil time in human history.

Bible prophecy stage-setting for the consummation of the Church Age (Age of Grace) is on the horizon in every direction the discerning senses turn. This upside-down assault by the most evil creature of history is no exception. In that regard, we look at the Scripture that forewarns of exactly where we stand as a generation on God’s end-times timeline.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)

This warning might easily be seen as pointing at those who today are directly assaulting everything God has deemed “good.” He did so when He created that perfect or “good” sphere to be ruled or governed by His creature called man. The Fall in the Garden of Eden, of course, caused Adam to lose the title deed to Planet Earth to Lucifer, the leader of the angelic rebellion in Heaven. Everything became corrupted by sin. The Lord was thus caused to destroy all life on earth that breathed air–with the exception of Noah, his family, and select animal life that would replenish the planet.

Now, at this late hour in human history, everything is in a rapidly degenerating state due once again to sin-corruptive forces. No force is more corruptive than that being used by the chief corrupter, Satan. Lucifer the fallen one is upside-downing all that God considers “good” and right in the world.

We could go through example after example of how this is taking place. Like the matter I’ve mentioned many times–wanting to preserve “Mother Earth” by doing things like saving the egg of the spotted owl or the tiny snail darter’s habitat, while at the same time murdering human babies in their mothers’ wombs by the millions. (More than 60 million in America since Roe v Wade in 1973.) I received the following web link that reports 1.72 billion babies have been aborted worldwide in the past forty years: https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/1.72-billion-abortions-worldwide-in-the-last-40-years.

On the religious level, the current Catholic pontiff says the Bible is wrong–that there are many ways to achieve eternal life in Heaven, that is, redemption. Jesus Christ is not the only Way, as Jesus said (John 14:6). This is calling “good” “evil” in the most egregious terms possible. It is upside-downing, in the most blatant way possible, the absolute necessity to believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ–the prescription God has, in His perfection, determined to be the only cure for sin sickness and the way to salvation for fallen mankind.

This blatancy can be witnessed in the most easily discerned way by considering the way the corruptive force is dealing directly with God’s creature called mankind.

God, as recorded in Genesis, made man and woman–male and female. There were none other human types that He made. The corruptive force tells us daily that we must accept that there are a number of types. There is the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer. There are likely a number of other such designations, but this is as far as my vexation allows me to investigate…

I will wrap up with the upside-downing this force has managed to perpetrate upon the most foundational relationship God created for us. This corruption was made intensely manifest with this news item.

Calling family “family” has sparked a meltdown among workers at Google, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation, including one who lashed out at company officials for their “disrespectful way to speak.”…

The revolt began when a company official was talking to employees about features of Google’s Unicorn product that continually use the word “family” as a synonym for “household with children.”

“That employee posted an extended rant, which was well-received by his colleagues, on why linking families to children is ‘offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong,’” the Daily Caller said.

The worker’s scolding included: “This is a diminishing and disrespectful way to speak. If you mean ‘children’, say ‘children’; we have a perfectly good word for it. ‘Family friendly’ used as a synonym for ‘kid friendly’ means, to me, ‘you and yours don’t count as a family unless you have children’…

… Use the word ‘family’ to mean a loving assemblage of people who may or may not live together and may or may not include people of any particular age. STOP using it to mean ‘children.’ It’s offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong.”

Dozens of other workers joined in, including Google Vice President Pavni Diwanji.

“Hi everyone, I realize what we said at tgif might have caused concerns in the way we talked about families. There are families without kids too, and also we needed to be more conscientious about the fact that there is a diverse makeup of parents and families, Dwiwanji wrote.

“Please help us get to a better state. Teach us how to talk about it in inclusive way, if you feel like we are not doing it well…’

One worker lashed out at conservatives, writing: “Using the word ‘family’ in this sense bothers me too. It smacks of the ‘family values’ agenda by the right wing, which is absolutely homophobic by its very definition.” (“Calling Family ‘Family’ Sparks Meltdown for Google Workers,” WorldNetDaily, Jan. 18, 2019)

Satan’s insane rage has at its heart a hatred for mankind. This is why he has waged a campaign to corrupt, thus with the desire to destroy, God’s creation called man. That’s why the corruptive force has managed to convince the elected (and unelected Supreme Court) governing authorities in America to allow the slaughter of more than 660 million babies in their mothers’ wombs since 1973. That is why Satan has created the rage within the corrupted human mind that LGBTQ is a loving alternative to one man and one woman for life as the way to procreate. Lucifer the fallen one has convinced that to not procreate is preferable–and when there is procreation, the child is unimportant and needs to be eliminated.

The corruption even goes on to put in the fallen minds of the vilest of human beings that children can be used in the most anti-God ways imaginable in satiating their lusts and perversions.

All of that constitutes a major reason this dispensation is quickly reaching its end and that God’s judgment and full-blown wrath loom. He will soon end the upside-downing and put everything right-side up again.
