White: it’s the new Black


Good: it’s the new Evil

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.
Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine
and champions at mixing drinks,
who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
but deny justice to the innocent.
Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw
and as dry grass sinks down in the flames,
so their roots will decay
and their flowers blow away like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty
and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
– Isaiah 5:20-24

In this scripture, the Lord has pronounced judgement against corrupt courts, who are allowing every kind of evil to flourish, and persecuting Christians for adhering to the demands of conscience.

A word of advice to these corrupt courts: Buy flame retardant underwear.

The Triangle of Freedom

America is missing the most important component of freedom

guinnessIn his book, “UNSPEAKABLE – “Facing up to Evil in an Age of Genocide and Terror,”  Os Guinness lays out a clear minded view of this moment in time. Of particular importance to Americans is the following section of his book, focusing on the “American Experiment.” He points out that we have forgotten an ingredient of our system that is more important that all the others. The following is directly from his book.

“The Framers’ Forgotten Issue

The second grand erosion concerns the contemporary dismissal of the American Framers’ solution for the problems of freedom. For the brilliant generation that devised what George Washington called the “great experiment,” the hardest problem to solve was the transience of freedom. Not only is it harder to be free than not to be free, but freedom never lasts. In politics, as in all spheres of human endeavor, no success is forever. Success finally fails. The challenge therefore is not just to win freedom (the achievement of the revolution in 1776), or even to order freedom (the achievement of the Constitution in 1787); the challenge is to sustain freedom⎯an achievement that is never finished because it is the challenge not of years or even decades, but of centuries.

The Framers’ realism in tackling this task was born of their knowledge of history, and in particular their intimate knowledge of the classical understanding of why freedom never lasts. They used history to defy history, and the roots of their wisdom are the key to understanding the revolution of their solutions.

For such writers as the Roman statesman Cicero and the Greek historian Polybius, there were three menaces to sustaining freedom: external menaces from other powers, and two internal menaces⎯the corruption of customs and the passing of time. The American experiment was designed to counteract all three.

If asked today what the Framers’ solution was, most Americans cite the distinctive seperation of powers in the Constitution, and this is indeed a crucial part of the solution.

But in fact, the ingenius American system of checks and balances is only half of the framers’ solution, and in the framers’ view, it would be inadequate without the other part. The forgotten part of the framers’ solution may be called the enduring triangle of freedom: freedom requires virtue, virtue requires faith of some sort, and faith requires freedom. Only so can a free republic hope to remain free.

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom,” Benjamin Franklin said in support of the first assumption, and the framers’ unanimity on this point is a powerful chorus in his support. At the same time they were equally clear that law alone is not enough to restrain evil and sustain freedom. As John Adams put it⎯and the support was again overwhelming⎯”We have no government armed with powers capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The force of the framers’ declaration of this triangle of freedom is undeniable. But it is equally undeniable that many American leaders dismiss or overlook it today. On the one hand, the majority of believers in America have a faith so privatized that it has become “privately engaging and publicly irrelevant”⎯too amiably innocuous to serve the strenuous cause of freedom. On the other hand, the educated elite have espoused a different vision of public life, one in which faith, character and virtue are to be inviolably private and the public square⎯a neutral arena of competing interrests⎯is to be inviolably secular.

The framers’ arguments can be dismissed in one of several ways. Some argue that their views were only a matter of rhetoric and cant, though they themselves denied this. Others argue that they were children of their times, but a study of other republicans of their day shows this was not so. Finally, still others argue, we moderns have discovered some sustaining power for freedom that does what the framers thought the triangle of freedom was needed to do.

This last possibility is the most plausible, though people that make this claim should openly declare what the substitute is. Most people have nothing convincing to say at this point and fall back lamely on the answers of law and technology. A moment’s thought, however, would show that reliance on law without faith or virtue only produces more laws and greater regulations, just as reliance on technology without faith and virtue produces tighter and tighter systems of surveillance. In either case, freedom is steadily undermined.

It is also possible that the framers were not indulging in high-flying rhetoric better suited for the Fourth of July but were in fact correct⎯soundly, solidly correct with all the realism and wisdom of history and political theory on their side. For America to “work,” Americans must cultivate the virtues necessary for freedom and ensure that they are passed from generation to generation. This is the political challenge of our times. Without this triangle of freedom, freedom cannot and will not last. If we celebrate freedom but remove from it all virtue until no good remains, we will not only lose freedom but ensure that what is left is evil. Thus, if the framers were correct, the contemporary adulation of their genius that ignores the heart of their realism and brilliance is a fateful neglect that tips the scales toward some future evil that no checks and balances will be able to stop.

(Note: 2005 was before America elected Barack Obama)

To clarify my point, if our culture continues into moral ruin, with LGBT, 50 Shades of Perversion, abortion on demand and every other sin, we cannot continue to be free. Our freedom will surely and soon be taken away from us unless we repent and call out to God for forgiveness.

Are the Makers of the “Selma” Movie Satanists???

How many people do you know who kid around about being satanists? Well, Brad Pitt, one of the producers of the movie “Selma”, had this to say at the Toronto Film Festival while promoting his movie “Money Ball”:

“I related it more to my upbringing,” Pitt said. “I grew up in a very Christian environment, a healthy environment, a loving family. But there were just parameters and things I didn’t understand. I always questioned it and it took me to my adult years or leaving home where I could really try on something different for myself. That was Satanism. It’s working out really well. I made a pact. That’s why the movie came out so well.”

“He was joking,” claimed the press. And maybe he was, but doesn’t that strike you as an odd thing to joke about?

Here’s a picture of Pitt showing off what appears to be a Masonic ring. At Henry Makow’s excellent site (’ll find tons of info detailing the connection between Masonry and satanism.


Then there’s Pitt’s wife, U.N. Ambassador and CFR member Angelina Jolie. You can find a lot of info showing links between the United Nations and Satanism on Henry’s site, and here:





Here are several pictures of the film’s director, Ava DuVernay, posing in what appear to be Masonic hand and arm gestures. Coincidence? Perhaps, but why are there so many of them?

I found these pics at In Search of Black Assassins:







Satanists? You be the judge.

The Average American

The average American spends five hours a day in front of the boob tube. They love their super heroes, their sports heroes, and their reality television stars. (They especially love their Kardashian sisters.) To the average American, a world of fantasy and illusion is preferable to real life.

The average American is obsessed with sex (possibly because they aren’t getting any), and obsessed with celebrities. Because their own lives are so petty and lacking in spiritual foundation, the average American worships fame and seeks to experience it vicariously through others.

The average American lives on a diet of fast food, junk food, processed food, and microwaved food. As a result, the average American is sick, sick, sick, addicted to numerous drugs and painkillers, and a virtual slave to the medical mafia.

The average American has one great fear: criticism. This fear of criticism is greater than their desire to succeed, their desire to know the truth, and even their desire to live. As a result, the average American is in firm acceptance of whatever authority figures or the mainstream media tells them. They accept wholeheartedly the “official story” of 9/11, Sandy Hook, Boston, and the biography of the man who calls himself Obama.

Because of this fear, the average American is gullible and easily swayed by advertising and the mainstream media. Any huckster, devoid of morality, can easily become a millionaire (or political leader) by exploiting this lack of critical thinking on the part of average Americans, and many have.

The average American prefers to have others tell them what to think and how to think, rather than think for themselves. The average American eats, dresses, and votes exactly how they are told. Their entire life, from birth to death, is programmed, controlled, and manipulated, and they don’t even know it.

The average American knows nothing about the Federal Reserve, how the Federal Reserve was created, or how the Fed prints fiat currency out of thin air. What’s worse, the average American has no interest in knowing. They’d rather watch television.


The average American lives a life of hypocrisy and denial. They identify with Christianity, or, in ever increasing numbers, they claim to be “spiritual, but not religious,” and yet they support political leaders who promote abortion, racism, inequality, the shredding of the Constitution, the loss of freedom and individual rights, and even murder.

The average American becomes angry and defensive when their belief system is challenged. They want to be certain of what they know even if everything they know is wrong.

The average American is generally well educated in the performance of their job or career, but takes little pride in their work and has zero knowledge or interest in how or why their job or career could be harming others.

The average American makes life difficult for the non-average American. Because they comprise the vast majority of people in this country, the average American creates the reality that we all must live in. The average American is frightened by non-average Americans and they are complicit in their persecution.

The average American is racked with guilt. Deep down inside, they know their lifestyle and choices are wrong, not just for themselves, but for all their fellow Americans, but their great fear of criticism, and the responsibilities and complexities of life are just too much for them to deal with. As a result, they retreat from reality through alcohol, drugs, television, junk food, television, and compulsive shopping.

Some average Americans are so far removed from reality that they actually enjoy a world of blissful ignorance. They frolic through life, oblivious of the great harm that their lifestyle and voting choices cause to others. They believe everything the mainstream media tells them. Many of them live 50, 60, 70 years or more and never experience an ounce of reality. Hollywood and the new age/self-improvement industry are filled with these types. Throw a stick at Malibu and you’ll hit ten of them.

The average American is portrayed in advertising as giddy, confident, and fun-loving. Nothing could be further from the truth. Except for the blissful idiots mentioned above, the average American leads a frightened and desperate life. The hide it well, but deep down inside, they are miserable. They make perfect pawns for those who hate America and they are used accordingly to spread racism, multi-culturism, and leftism.

The average American is all around you: on television, on the street outside, and right outside your door.

Aren’t you glad you’re not the average American?


The Importance of Parental Wisdom and Guidance

This was first published on November 12, 2013.


John was a genius.  He had the highest IQ of anyone ever tested in our school.  His teachers were so impressed they allowed him to skip a grade.  Though small in stature, John’s brain scored a knockout against anyone he came in contact with.

John was the type who could spend fifteen minutes reading a television repair manual and immediately know how to completely take apart and reassemble all the parts.  His future had scientist, doctor, nuclear physicist written all over it.  Today he lives on skid row.

Growing up, John never received any wisdom or guidance.  His father attended church, but spent every available moment working.  John’s mother never attended church.  She spent all her time talking on the phone or watching television.  She fought constantly with John’s father.  Their home was filled with screaming and tension.

Lacking guidance at home, John followed the path of countless other young men, he turned to the street.  From there, it was a short spiral to drugs, gangs, and a wasted life.

John’s life is not a rarity.  I see men and women just like him all around me.

I grew up in a Catholic home.  Not once, in my entire childhood, did either of my parents have a conversation with me about Catholic doctrine, the Bible, or the difference between right and wrong.  We never prayed together except at meal time.  I was taught nothing about money, finances, politics, or how to be a man.  I suspect my experience is typical of millions of other American males.

Young men have an intense need to understand their place in the world.  When they can’t get it at home, they turn to the older males around them.  Some are lucky to find a mentor in a teacher or an athletic coach.  Most are not.  Most follow the same path as John.

The proliferation of gangs in the black community is no mystery.  As welfare destroyed the black family and removed the father from the home, young men turned to the older males around them.  That these “role models” are less than stellar is irrelevant.  The need for guidance and approval from an older male transcends common sense.

Young women also need guidance from their fathers.  Without it, they often turn to immodest dress and promiscuity.  Their need for approval from an older male is so strong that if they do not receive it from dad at home, they will seek it from a stranger on the street.

Lack of wisdom from a mother is equally damaging to both young men and young women.  One of the reasons most men are so clueless when it comes to women is because they never had guidance or approval from an older female at home.  As adults, they lack the nurturing qualities a female provides.  Many remain in a state of perpetual adolescence their entire lives.

When young women are not provided with wisdom and guidance from their mothers, they turn to the older females around them.  This leads many of them to embrace radical feminism and New Age religion.  They fear and disdain men, because they were never exposed to positive female role models in the home.

When neither parent is available to provide wisdom for the child, culture becomes a powerful conditioning force.  Without positive role models at home, young people seek guidance in music, television, movies, books, and magazines.  And if you don’t think popular culture exists to promote an endless Leftist agenda of godless immorality, think again.  That is precisely its purpose.  The worst offenders of all are the movies, television networks, and shows aimed directly at children and young people.  You know who I’m talking about.

Don’t fall for the lie that children are smarter today than in generations past.  They’re not smarter, they’re more jaded.  They have no role models or examples to look up to.  They’re taught that morality is relative, and that feelings trump intellect.  They’re taught revisionist history that discredits the country and its religious foundation.  They’re taught dependence and cowering to the mob over responsibility and self-reliance.

Are there young people in your life?  They need your wisdom and guidance.  A word of advice here, a pat on the back there; both contribute enormously to a child’s development.  Even more important is the example you set by the living of your own life.  Children observe everything.

Being a mentor to the young is not easy, especially for parents.  It requires tremendous self-sacrifice and an almost complete withdrawal from the values of secular society.  Yet that is another lesson we must teach our young: doing the right thing often means doing the hard thing.

Which brings us back to John.  There’s no telling how far John could have gone with a positive mentor in his life.  But none of the adults he knew took any interest in him at all.  Like millions of others, John’s potential was never developed.  Like millions of others, his life became a tragedy.

I know about John personally.  He’s my older brother.

Target Says No to Guns: Store Assaults Begin Immediately

On July 2 of this year, Target issued a new policy asking customers not to bring guns to its stores. That same day, a Target shopper in Gainesville, Georgia was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot, and on July 5, a woman shopper at a Target store in Atlanta was punched in the head in the store’s parking lot by a black male, who then stole her car and attempted to run her over.

Lest, you think Target is merely another well-meaning, but misguided company, take a look at these ads from one of their recent catalogues, targeted at children:




For those who don’t understand the symbolism, the “OK” sign with three fingers spread out spells “6-6-6”, and covering one eye is a symbol of Lucifer just like the eye on the pyramid on our one dollar bills. I believe it was Franklin Roosevelt, the second worst president of all time, who put all-seeing eye of satan on our money.

Compare Target’s children with these photos featuring several well known satanists, and remember that another big company that is anti-gun and anti-Constitution, Starbucks, also has a history of satanic symbolism.
