Masquerading as Righteous

This commentary ran at the Visalia Times Delta on August 22nd, 2018.

Last Thursday media outlets across the country tried to defend their legitimacy. But the en masse editorials opposing Trump’s accusations against them was hardly about journalistic integrity but everything about their hatred for Trump. While it might be that twenty percent or so of the media are true journalists, a lucid glance reveals that most are liberal hacks and operatives of the Democratic Party.

Sometimes evil is personified and easy to comprehend: Commodus in Gladiator, The Joker in The Dark Knight, or the sadistic Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile. But more often evil masquerades as good in a deceptive mode.

A woman’s “right to choose” masquerades as some sort of virtue but the evil is manifold: men want free sex without the responsibility inherent in sexual activity, the woman is put in a severe dilemma and so the holocaust of American lives in the womb continues… wholly sanctioned by the liberal media.

In the name of the good called equality all manner of evil masquerades as good where men defile themselves with men, bisexual men spread disease, and transsexuals attempt to redefine God’s obvious design of male and female. The liberal media forges deceptions daily regarding such matters.

The Washington Post’s theme is “Democracy Dies in Darkness” but they advocate for socialism nonstop which is the script of most liberal media outlets. Like the Bolsheviksof the USSR they buy into the “supremacy of the state.” Leninsaid it himself, “the goal of socialism is communism.” Hitlerdid the same, promoting a “national socialism.” These “isms” that set the state above all, including communism in China, always fashion a frontal attack on Christianity. This aligns with liberalism which jettisoned God in the Sixties. The masquerade is pervasive.

How can the liberal media hold Trump accountable to a standard of truth when the lies they buy into are beyond measure? The Columbia and Berkeley Schools of Journalism produce these elitists who live in titanium bubbles where they pontificate about how Trump is pregnant with evil but the worse evil is that which resides in their very own hearts. The American people perceive it which is why Trump was elected.

Yet another pretty lie is the identity politics the liberal media saturate us with. Rather than promoting character, a healthy self-reliance, the Protestant Work Ethic and seizing the opportunities American capitalism affords the individual, they highlight inequalities, promote a victimhood persona, and incite a hatred for those who have more. It is a function of our base natures to steal from others rather than make our own way. I am not saying inequality does not exist or that capitalism does not have flaws. But it is the divine nature of man to overcome and find a way.

The very same zeitgeist that informed Lenin’s idea of , “telling less than the truth, misleading and lying” animates the liberal media of today. The all too common theme occurs when one rejects God, He then gives that person over to delusions and the nature of delusions is self-deception. Is there any question in the American mind that these delusions led to the last administration getting a pass on all manner of evil while this administration gets no pass whatsoever?

The media’s leanness of soul disqualifies them as any sort of petrichor that refreshes the American people.

The longer the subterfuge of the media lasts the more Americans will seek truth elsewhere. The truth does matter and in the greater scheme of things the only completely reliable purveyor of truth is Jesus Himself.

July 4th 2017: A Time to Hate Evil

King Solomon wrote three books of the Bible. In Ecclesiastes he said there is a time to love and a time to hate.tumblr_l29yi3gag71qa8ix8o1_r1_1280

Paul in the Bible said we should hate what is evil and cling to what is good.

The New York Times estimates drug overdoses in America in 2016 were around 59,000. We have an opioid epidemic. The LA Times says this, “Last year, there were 20,792 homicides in Mexico — a 22% increase over 2015, and a 35% jump over 2014.”. These homicides are primarily drug cartel related. We need a wall for the health of both countries. Liberals hate the idea of a wall because illegal immigrants provide a dependent voting bloc. Republicans have zero courage. That is something to hate.

Now every June immoral men have parades taking “pride” in their evil behavior with even a President signing off on the wickedness. Obama in effect said sodomy is good – defying the very God who created him. Why is a good part of the world so enamored with homosexuality? Surely delusions run rampant on this earth. Homosexuals operate as if equality is the only worthwhile principle under the sun. Good men will hate such confusion.

Trump is hard to defend but he says he wants to make America great again. A good part of America would really like to see that happen. But the media and liberal democrats continually attack Trump with false narratives in an effort to derail his presidency out of sheer vengeance. Such an evil agenda must be hated.

The God of the Bible is the one who created you and all that you can see and behold. But this liberal nonsense of, “separation of church and state” that is not even in the constitution has been used by deceived men to drive God out of our society. That is a scheme of evil itself

Hillary committed a crime using her own email server and then lied to you about it. She also gave the Russians 20% of our plutonium for hefty donations to her foundation. There is plenty of evidence that the Clintons used Foundation funds for personal gain. Bill Clinton is an alleged serial sexual predator of which Hillary is an enabler. This low brow character is the person Democrats and the liberal media think would be a good president for you. Such delusions are easy to hate.

Any philosophy like liberalism that demands that Americans be snuffed out in the womb is surely the dung beetle of world philosophies. Fifty-Nine million dead Americans from abortion as a result of “sexual freedom” is incredible human carnage. Anyone who does not hate such slaughter has a leanness of soul.

While the liberal media and liberal democrats cook up false accusations regarding Trump, Obama gave billions of dollars to terrorist Iran, he used the IRS to attack political opponents, he used the DOJ to deflect responsibility regarding the fast and furious, and he used AG Loretta Lynch to get Hillary off of the hook. Add to all of that lying about Benghazi and having subordinates lie about a dead American ambassador all of which the liberal media gave Obama a complete pass on and the hate piles up like dead stinking rats.

Two caveats are in order for liberals. First is that we are to hate evil but not people. Second is that the typical liberal response is that we should not judge. Well, that is one verse in the Bible that paints a picture. Jesus also said we should judge with a right judgment and the need for discernment is thoroughly documented in the Bible.

There is plenty to be grateful about our country – the greatest civilization in the history of the world. First our great heritage is second only to God’s great providence in ancient Israel. Second, there are a whole lot of great people in our country who understand good from evil. Third, our appeals to our Creator do not fall on deaf ears.

If we continue on this foolish liberal path that says we are “evolving” beyond religion and our Creator then our decline will continue.

Jesus said He is the truth. This Fourth let us hate what is evil and embrace what is true.

Obama is a Wicked and Worthless Leader

Obama is a Wicked and Worthless Leader

Someone needs to finally pronounce it! This is not about race. It has always been about virtue. This is a statement to our culture.

Do we have any idea how wicked it is to expose women and young girls to potentially mentally ill transvestite men or rapists posing as transvestites? What kind of malicious leader would conceive such malfeasance?

Throughout the Old Testament there are narratives like this, “And this king did evil in the sight of the Lord… and this King did what was right in the sight of the Lord.” One passage says that a king, “encouraged moral decline.” That really describes our current reprobates in Washington. It is highly myopic to think that our actions in this life will not be judged by our Creator.

The Bible clearly delineates that pure religion is to look after orphans, widows, the poor and to visit those in prison. Liberalism’s agenda is to advance the imaginary, “civil rights” of the immoral LGBT mob which Obama readily attends to.

Prominent in our Declaration is that all men, “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life….” The most diabolical statement ever uttered by any president in the history of our nation is, “God bless Planned Parenthood.” Rather than bestowing the blessing of life on the American people, Obama says, “God bless” the en masse killing of Americans in the womb. This is pure wickedness in the sight of the Lord who sees everything.

In the movie, Bridge of Spies, the character that Tom Hanks plays says this, “…but what makes us both Americans? Just one thing, one… …the rule book. We call it the Constitution and we agree to the rules and that’s what makes us Americans and it’s all that makes us Americans….” I think there are additional attributes that make us truly American but sticking to this interesting criterion for the moment, has Obama agreed to the rules of the Constitution? Not in the slightest! He just bypassed Congress and decreed that transvestite boys should have access to the very same restrooms that young girls use in schools! He has routinely trashed our Second Amendment right to bear arms by regulations. And he has conducted a frontal assault against,” Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof….”

Do we really think it is befitting for a standing president of the United States to attack political opponents using the IRS? What kind of example is it for this mendacious president to deceive the American people about Obamacare, Benghazi, and Iran?

It was God Himself that fashioned marriage. It is nothing but hubris that causes Obama to think he can consult with his children and then reverse thousands of years of proven tradition.

The black rot of modern liberalism deceives us in manifold ways. We live in the greatest country in the history of the world at the grandest time to ever live.  If the American people do not turn back to God and elect moral and decent statesmen then our enemies both within and without will eventually destroy us.

Ultimately we will have to forgive this vile president and our fellow Americans for electing him. When Jesus cursed the fig tree it withered away. May the Lord curse all of the evil that Stanley’s son has cast upon us.

Commentary

Evangelicals Must Vote

This is a political essay.

It is real easy for Christians to throw their hands up in total disgust and conclude that our country has finally staggered into a moral morass. The thought is that my clan and I will make it to heaven and that is the end of it. And Jesus said His Kingdom is not of this world.

But not so fast.

Jesus came to redeem individuals and cultures. Long ago God sent a man named Jonah to a wicked people in the ancient city of Nineveh. God wanted the people to repent and seek Him. We know from elsewhere in the Bible that wickedness brings a curse and destruction but repentance brings peace and prosperity.

Jesus came to redeem a people who despised him, which is why he was crucified. Nineveh was likewise.

Obama’s policies have left 95 million Americans out of the work force. That is not prosperity.

Obama’s open borders lead to drug runners, terrorists, criminals and sex traffickers coming across the border. This does not lead to peace. Obama’s open borders are for the purpose of importing a simple-minded dependant voting class to increase Democratic Party power. Good men know this is evil.

It is altogether diabolical for a leader to say “God bless Planned Parenthood.” Can you fathom the ocean of guilt that has settled upon 55 million mothers who have destroyed their babies in the womb? This is staggering carnage, and it is anything but peace.

If we add Obama’s lying about Benghazi, lying about doctors to get Obamacare  passed, trashing the 1st and 2nd amendments and a host of other issues, good men can easily conclude that Obama cannot be numbered among honorable statesmen. But the American people put him there – admittedly though by his own and the media’s subterfuge.

And we all know that institutional Republicans serve the donor class and not, “We the People.”

So, what are we to conclude? That God will hold every man accountable for his vote. That we must repent of wickedness. But that we are made in God’s image so we are religious right down to our very core. And that God loves us. He seeks our redemption, our peace and our prosperity and that if we do not cast our vote in a circumspect manner then we deserve the chaos and affliction that will eventually come upon us.
