Progressives Declaring War

Tyrants always have a problem with religion, whether it's the Democrat Administration in Washington, Vladimir Putin in Moscow, or the Kims of North Korea. If God the Creator holds ultimate authority, then the dictators cannot. "No one can serve two masters: for either you will hate the one, and love the other; or else you will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and Mammon [earthly power]", Jesus said. In our present age, technology has given terrible powers to earthly authorities, and we can be tracked and monitored all day, every day. The temptation to seize final, total control is irresistible to tyrants. 

We are seeing brazen and evil dictates emanating from the federal government, and they're focused particularly on people of faith.  By trying to force the Catholic church to provide birth control and abortion services in their hospitals, Obama and his Democrat minions are declaring war on all believers. If they can force anyone to violate conscience and religious principles they can force you, too. Their dictates run contrary to the Constitution and every ideal of American liberty. We are all Catholics now, essentially. Mobs are being mobilized through unions, political activist cells, and media generated hysteria to accomplish so-called "democratic" goals, but they are demonic. President Obama is a flagrant abuser of people, process, protocol and every tradition of the Presidency and our government.

We are being tested as never before, and we have a glorious opportunity to distinguish ourselves in this conflict.

Our American Republic

Civilization began growing as soon as people figured out how to counteract the mob mentality. Laws, morals, and faith in friendship made private property possible; which always motivates individuals to specialize and produce. Kings were a solution for several thousand years, but monarchies create problems. Sophisticated and educated people crave self-government, and Americans have been the most successful at it, until now. We are in grave danger, however.

America is not a democracy, and it never was. Pure democracy cannot work. The ancient Greeks - who created the first democratia - discovered that the common people can quickly become a dangerous mob. Far too often the Greeks found themselves dispatching military forces to wreak havoc on an ally or enemy in the heat of anger; but when the sun rose the next morning they would realize their grave mistake. Ships or runners would be dispatched with counter-orders. Sometimes it was too late and they committed mass murder.

The Romans adored all things Greek, and tried democracy also. It failed. But being eminently practical and smart, the Romans came up with a brilliant modification, the res publica, which we translate as republic. In this system, representatives are elected by small groups to meet with other elected representatives of other groups; thus providing a buffer from the mob, and time. The representatives can deliberate with reason and calmness while the mob cools off.

The Roman Republic failed because they never discovered the necessity of separation of powers. Our Founders created the three separate branches of government, the legislative, judicial, and executive arms. This creates checks and balances to power. Obama - the executive - and his mob rule party are now furiously attacking the judicial and legislative arms of government. This is pure tyranny, and our nation as we've known it cannot survive if he succeeds.

God Wants Us To Rule Ourselves

The ancient Israelites succumbed to fear and called on God to appoint a king over them.
From 1 Samuel 8:1:
When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as Israel’s leaders... But his sons did not follow his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice. So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel.  They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”

But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD.  And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king.  As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”

Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king. He said, “This is what the king who will reign over  you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants.  Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle and donkeys he will take for his own use. He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.”
But the people refused to listen to Samuel. “No!” they said. “We want a king over us. Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.”

The Israelites didn't want to take responsibility for fighting their battles, and over time, it cost them dearly. There were many bad Israelite kings who harmed the nation.

Our system of self-government can be said to represent the will of God. How dare we allow it to be corrupted!

The Satanic Nature of Mobs

We live in an age of rising democracies - or so we're told - but on close inspection, most democracies are fake. There are no free and fair elections; no rational political debates. The worst ones call themselves "the people's democratic republic of..." North Korea, Yemen, Congo, and so on. In most cases a military junta or powerful oligarchy dominates the people by fear of death or incarceration. When necessary the leaders bribe or force a mob to turn out for a demonstration in favor of the figurehead tyrant. Last year's Arab Spring toppled governments all over the Middle East, replacing old dictators with new ones who were better at controlling the mob.

Angry mobs routinely commit atrocities that individuals alone would never commit. Nothing good comes from mob action. Nobody and no thing is safe when mobs form. World history is rife with crimes of mob violence, witch burnings and persecutions of Jews, Christians, and other ethnic and religious minorities. The 20th Century was particularly bloody. It's ironic that mob holocausts worsened with the rise of science and technology, but the sad truth is civilization is a thin and delicate veneer covering hateful and murderous passions. Technology turns out to be an asset in the hands of mob manipulators. The Bolsheviks, Nazis, Shintoists, and Maoists all mastered the art of controlling and using mobs, killing over 100 million in the last century, and prospering for a time. But eventually their rotten foundations collapsed their empires.

Mobs are essentially demonic. As stated in the New Testament Gospel of Mark, Chapter 5, "Jesus and his disciples came to the other side of the lake, to the region of the Gerasenes. As soon as Jesus got out of the boat, a man possessed by an evil spirit came out of the tombs. This man lived among the tombs, and no one was ever strong enough to restrain him, even with a chain. He had been secured many times with leg irons and chains, but he broke the chains and smashed the leg irons. No one was tough enough to control him. Night and day in the tombs and the hills, he would howl and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from far away, he ran and knelt before him, shouting, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!” He said this because Jesus had already commanded him, “Unclean spirit, come out of the man!”

Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”

He responded, “Legion is my name, because we are many.” Jesus then drove the demonic forces out of the man. 

There is a mind behind evil. Regardless of the name we use for it, that mind celebrates chaos and  degradation; the corruption of human compassion and love. This is the path tyrants use to gain power, and Satan is pure power and tyranny. We're seeing raw tyranny growing everywhere, and it's happening to us in America right now. The daily news is filled with reports of mobs in the streets, the Occupy Wall Street crowd, the new Black Panthers, even self-described anarchists, provoked by grievances that have been made much worse by inept governments. The massive failures of socialist economies and corrupted legal systems are generally the cause, but sometimes it's a laughably trivial grievance; such as the perceived unavailability of birth control. The so-called 'progressive' Democrats are manufacturing a "Republican war on women" that appears to have failed to generate the expected riots. Thank God.

There is one party in America that has always specialized in using mobs. The Democratic Party, formed by Andrew Jackson  in the 1820's, catered to the interests of poor farmers and newly-arrived immigrants who were easily manipulated to riot. Jackson was elected president in 1828, but the mobs at his inauguration did so much damage to Washington D.C. that even Jackson himself was shocked at the monster he created. Nevertheless, he persisted as its leader, serving two terms.

The Democrats were the pro-slavery party and they forced the nation into the Civil War.  Lincoln ran against the Democrats in 1860 as the first presidential candidate of the newly-formed anti-slavery Republican Party. After the Civil War Democrats persisted as the racist, pro-segregation party. They succeeded in reversing Republican Teddy Roosevelt's anti-racist integration policies when Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, won the presidency in 1912. He re-segregated the armed forces and - among other atrocities - encouraged the Ku Klux Klan to demonstrate their power nationwide. Southern Democrats were outspoken in their racism until Lyndon Johnson came to power in 1964. He got Congress to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but created such a mess that by 1968 he had no hope of re-election, and quit the race.

Until the late 1960's, northern Democrats were relatively restrained in their use of mob violence. But at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, 1968, all the stops were pulled out and cities all over America burned. Americans rejected Democrats until 1976, when Jimmy Carter was elected president as a reaction to Richard Nixon and Watergate. Carter's massive failure assured the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980.

Democrat mob rule tactics are ascending now because president Obama - a self-designated "community organizer" - is a colossal failure, and he controls the levers of power and money. His only hope of avoiding disgrace is to acquire total dictatorial power. He and his minions sense that Americans are not paying attention, and almost all media has become a tool in their hands; propagandizing and covering up failure. The Democrats' tactics are spelled out by their hero Saul Alinsky in his book, Rules For Radicals. Hillary Clinton wrote her Masters thesis - There is Only One Fight - about Alinsky and his methods, which date back to 1946. This is Alinsky's dedication to Satan on the inside cover of Rules For Radicals:
"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history... the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer."
-- Saul Alinsky

Once again, the Democratic Party has thrown aside all scruples, and now they're playing to the mob daily. Obama and his minions are tailoring their every word to appeal to the darkest angels of our lower nature, attacking business people, the courts, Congress, the independently successful, and anyone else who disagrees with them. They're stirring  racial hatred, envy, and strife, and manufacturing economic chaos by a blizzard of regulations. Their policies are interfering with every facet of our lives. They demonize all their opponents. It's their strategy for re-election because they've failed miserably in every arena of government, foreign and domestic.

The Demonic Realms are making their presence felt. We're in a war against evil.

It's important to remember that evil - the eternal flip side of good - can never be beaten. But it can buried in the Pit of Hell, as Scripture describes the process. For this we will have the aid of the Holy Angels.

Christ is Risen in Fact - Crucifixion and Death Are Not the End

Happy Easter! This is the season of resurrection, when bare sticks and cold ground come back to life. So it was with Christ, and so it will be for us.
