How ever did we get to the point where we no longer even recognize actual, true reality any more? Have we been so spiritually jaded, so educationally dumbed-down and so politically numbed that we have lost all intellectual discernment?
Very simple; nothing to it. All morality boils down to a thing being either right, or wrong. Forget the shades of grey crap. A thing is either right or it is wrong. It's all tied up in truth versus error, which really amounts to the same thing. Since God is Truth, and He is the center and fount of all lesser truths, it becomes a matter of Godliness versus ungodliness.
If you know what is true, then you know what is moral; the problem is that we have been ever more deeply buried in untruth disguised as truth for so many successive generations that we no longer know how to discern even the simplest of truths any more, in any subject. We are taught error, from childhood. That is our beginning point. Error piled upon error piled upon error, all officially taught to be true. Falsehood is taught as fact to children and adults.
Each Supreme Court "slap down" of Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) is celebrated as some kind of major victory for the Constitution, when it is in fact a minor thing - a mere tossing of a bone to the ever increasingly trained Riff-Raff. And all cheer, while the steady process of Incremental Tyranny continues its inexorable march toward the full destruction of the Constitution.
He still, to this day, is not widely recognized for who and what he is.
In a five-four split decision, the Court held that some privately owned corporations could be excused from including abortifacient coverage from among the contraception coverage they were legally being forced, against their will, to purchase. And the crowds cheered and started their happy-dance. A Constitutional victory, they thought.
But four Justices voted against it. Did not all of them swear in their oaths of office to uphold the Constitution as the supreme law of the land? Why then was the vote not unanimous? But the contraception coverage mandate was not part of the original Obamacare Constitutionality question; it was a matter of lesser law, in the form of an HHS legal "regulation" added into the law after the fact. It was not in the Obamacare law when it was originally legislated and signed.
It was an "As the Secretary shall determine" action of the HHS Secretary, in a demonstration of the unrecognized incremental tyranny coded into unconstitutionally legislated law these days.
No one even asks any more why HHS exists. As we said in Cut HHS, as in the rest of the Cut the Spending pages, this is a Soviet (I mean administrative bureaucracy) that has no Constitutional standing and no valid legal reason to exist. But it does. And it is running the show. It, like all the others, is at the beck and call of Comrade Obama (peace be upon him.)
Congress has sole Constitutional authority to originate law. The Constitution nowhere grants Congress the ability to delegate any of its exclusive law making authority to any other entity.
Yet, in a near mirror-image of how the Soviet Union was constructed, we have a giant pyramid of unelected and unaccountable administrative bureaucracies, all with authority to pass regulations with full force of law, and all at the beck and call of the dictator. I mean President. Now, under this President, they all have their own rapidly growing police forces, and even swat teams. We are ever increasingly administered, rather than Constitutionally governed. Which is to say, herded.
But even that is a minor thing, when you look at the fundamental unconstitutionality of the whole of Obamacare. Point after point, it directly violates the Constitution. It forces citizens and corporate entities to buy something against their will, under penalty of law. It forces insurance companies to provide something against their will. If forces health-care providers to use something against their will. It was unconstitutionally rammed through the legislative process and voted in by Congressmen and Senators who had not even read it.
Every Senator and every Congressman who voted for it thereby violated his oath of office to uphold the Constitution.
The President who signed it into law thereby violated his own oath of office to uphold the Constitution.
Then, when legally challenged, the Supreme Court, in a five-four decision, unconstitutionally modified legislated law in order to grant this abomination "constitutional" standing in law.
Every Supreme Court Justice who voted to sustain Obamacare thereby violated his oath of office to uphold the Constitution.
And yet, the most recent two Supreme Court decisions are widely celebrated as Constitutional victories.
What can I say?
The Criminal Alien problem is now going on steroids, with help from all quarters, including full orchestration from the sitting American government. In a brilliant and masterful application of the Marxist anti-American Cloward-Piven strategy, they induced the recent sudden influx of "unacompanied children" illegally entering the USA. As part of the plan, the government began hiring new employees to meet them and transport them all around the country way back in January. Thus, our government were the only ones not really surprised by the sudden appearance of tens of thousands of little children overloading our border capabilities.
They feigned surprise for political reasons, as did their propaganda wing. I mean our news media. But, just as in Fast and Furious, and just as in Benghazi, the government was in on the plan from the beginning.
The brilliance of this particular application of Cloward-Piven is in the number of elements overloaded. Border Patrol is overloaded, and turned into a baby-sitting service. Churches open their doors and, guess what, Churches are overloaded. Charities jump in and, guess what, charities are overloaded. Health-care is overloaded; local food distribution is overloaded; existing Soviets (I mean government bureaucracies) are overloaded.
So our government bureaucracies have to hire more workers, who will, of course, be union workers, and who will be Marxocrat Party voters, and who will be dependent upon bigger and bigger government for their pay and benefits, and who will cost more non-existent treasure, and on, and on, and on.
That's how Incremental Tyranny advances.
Incremental Tyranny advances by not being recognized for what it is. If it told you what it was, you would stop it. It pretends to be something else. It is falsehood = ungodliness. On earth, it got its first start with an untruth regarding the fruit of one tree at the center of a garden. In America, it is ending with what we are looking at. We have been systematically educated in error. We therefore, unknowingly, contribute to the process.
The purpose of American education is
America, from her founding, was the first nation to make indivdual citizens into independent operators, imbued with "goodness" and high morality, who could take care of themselves and their families, who maintained close ties with extended family, and who were good neighbors. The formation of such citizens was the original goal of American education.
It worked pretty well until the government took it over.
The Pilgrims, the Colonists, the Founders who signed the Declaration and the Framers who signed the Constitution were, almost to a man, home schooled and self educated. Their teachers were their parents, older siblings, aunts, uncles and neighbors, until at some point they began self-educating, perhaps with a mentor or two. Most of them were extremely literate, by today's standards, by around age 10, when they took over their own continuing education as their interests led them.
Beginning around the same age, for the most part, those who didn't work in the family business went out into the larger world as an apprentice, intern or even indentured servant at some shop or business. Actual work was an important part of their ongoing education.
Rare was the one-room schoolhouse with a community-paid teacher. They were as rare or as common as necessity dictated. Early on it was recognized that those who possessed knowledge of the three Rs did better in life than those who didn't, and so illiterate parents would sacrifice much to get someone else to teach their children, and even themselves.
I submit for your consideration the statement that the typical home-schooled adult circa 1800 was far, far better educated, and far more practical, than today's typical college graduate, and better educated than most of those today who hold advanced degrees.
Public education changed all that.
Most today who oppose Common Core are unaware of the beginnings of public education. That's where the problems began. There is nothing about it in the Constitution. "Free" - meaning, tax-payer funded - education, and mandatory education, and "child labor" laws prohibiting employing children were all born of Marx's Communist Manifesto. It involved, from the beginning, ideological indoctrination. Over time the indoctrination predominated over education itself. That's where we are today.
Public education is the most successful branch of Incremental Tyranny. All public schools are government property; all teachers and all who work at public schools in any capacity are government employees, and almost certainly union members. When they go on strike it is against you, the tax payer. They negotiate with the Marxocrat dominated government, who always supports the unions that support the Marxocrats, but the pay and benefits are provided by you, the tax payer. The News Media knows it, and is in on it.
You have no choice in the matter, thanks to truancy laws. It is legally mandatory indoctrination. I mean education.
What may be worse, for national security purposes, is the incestuous relationship between higher education and the Marxocrat Party. The most preferred and highly recognized universities in America, and perhaps the world,
They are quite open about it. Anti-American Marxism dominates American academe.
I have been railing against such "educational" travesties as Darwinism, Freudianism and Marxism since, at least, the 1960s. Ask anyone who knows me. I remember arguing with a science teacher in 7th and 8th grade about the evidence for macro-evolution way back in the 1950s. (There wasn't any, and there still isn't any.) Everybody thinks I'm just an old contrarian, but few seriously look into the "establishment teachings" I contradict. These three serious errors form the basis for major ongoing error, all built up and still building upon them.
Marxism itself commandeered both Darwinism and Freudianism and used them to generate new errors and promote false ideology, leading men away from truth. Whole new falsehoods have been generated, all geared toward inducing a false sense of crisis, growth of government, migration of power from the people to the government, and centralization of political power. Too few see it for what it is.
Marxism now owns Scientism as well as education.
Chicken-Little was credited with inducing panic among his fellow barnyard critters by yelling
Today's more sinister Marxian fraudsters yell things like
And the ones who are the most completely fooled by this nonsense are the most highly educated among us. Proving my point. The more educated the modern American is the more steeped in pure materialism he is likely to be, and the deeper into stupidassism he is likely to have plunged.
"The Sting", starring Robert Redford, Paul Newman and Robert Shaw, illustrated the carefully orchestrated fraud, with the overall strategy insisting that, to work properly, the victim of the fraud must never know, ever, that the whole thing was a fraud. The whole movie was about an elaborate fraud, with a huge cast of characters who were in on it, pretending and play-acting to be someone other than who they were, doing something other than what they were really doing. Together, they masterfully executed a major fraud against a victim who never knew he was a victim, before, during or after.
And that's the way it is with all the major frauds, sponsored by Marxist ideologues of one variety or another, that are being perpetrated against us, and against our Constitution today. There exists a cast of millions behind them; some dupes, most not dupes, but actually in on it. Just like the Piltdown Man hoax, only bigger. When you see through it, and present your evidences, you are brushed aside, shouted down and ignored, or your small voice is buried beneath a superior number of countering voices.
The goal, you see, is not to convince everyone, but to convince the highest possible number. The moron-vote. The systematically dumbed-down vote. The indoctrinated, propagandized, unthnking vote. And, of course, the already Left-leaning vote. When confronted with countervailing evidences, they will just shout all the louder, Yes, the globe really is warming, hoping any moron listeners will believe them before they believe you. That's their story and they're sticking to it.
And, I'm telling you, the moron vote includes many of the most highly educated among us. They don't even know that they are victims of multiple hoaxes.
Ask any "true believer" in any of the frauds listed above, or in the foundational frauds of Darwinism, Freudianism or Marxism why they believe such things, and what they base their belief on, and watch the reactions. Challenge anthropomorphic global warming. Challenge HIV causing AIDS, or even being a disease with any actual symptoms. The one thing you will not get is any scientific emperical evidences, because there aren't any, and there never were. That's the way it is.
You will get the condescending smiles of effete elitist sophists, assurances that the theory is true, but no evidences. You may get long lists of TTRSTF4 who all agree that it is true, and perhaps signed some document stating that it is true, but no real evidences. You may get a long list of TTRSPTF5 who actually teach the subject, and have written papers and books on it, who all agree that it is true; but no real evidences. You may get a long list of TTRSJTF6 and other members of the SLIMC1 , like movie producers, movie stars, comedians and big time celebritcrats with their large adoring retinues of celebritards trailing behind; but again, you will get no real evidences.
The perpetrators and the victims of Incremental Tyranny, in their variety, may be best described as existing on a two-dimensional plane, with pure evil treachery at one end, pure stupidassism at the other, and many variants of combinations of the two, described by Lenin and Stalin as Useful Idiots, scattered between the two ends. When you first encounter someone who believes, or seems to believe, for instance, in Global Warming Doom, or Ozone Hole Doom, or some such hoax, you don't at first know whether you are encountering an evil manipulator, a blithering idiot or some combination variant of fool.
The one thing seemingly held in common by all of them is a total lack of supernatural faith. They intellectually ignore the spiritual in favor of the worldly. Any attention they pay to religion will be of the periodic, lip-service, variety, going-through-the-motions for the sake of appearances and politics.
Catholic Bishops are not immune to this nonsense; quite the contrary. Most of them have fallen deeply into it, like everybody else. The position of the USCCB on our criminal alien problem highlights their ignorance of the anti-American treachery at play here. They call them "undocumented" rather than illegal, and "immigrants" rather than alien intruders, even though they have no intent to immigrate.
The Bishops think they are here to do something rather than to get something, which they are getting, or they would leave. With few exceptions they are not producers, but consumers. They are not human capital, as free men are, but they are dependent mouths to feed. They have not been raised in liberty; they don't know what real liberty is. And our Bishops are either too evil or too stupid to be able to see that.
In calling for "comprehensive immigration reform" the Bishops reveal themselves to be cooperators and magnifiers of a major treacherous anti-American lie. Immigration law is not "broken" or in need of fixing; it is, quite illegally, not being enforced. Border security law is not "broken" or in need of fixing; it is, quite illegally, not being enforced. We have no need of new law, or expanded or new bureaucracy, or eliminating of our sovereign borders so that the whole world can come and enjoy government hand outs.
The USCCB has shown that it opposes American sovereign border integrity, which is to say, the USCCB opposes America as a sovereign nation. Most American Bishops don't think of themselves as anti-Americans, but that's what they are.
All of this is being done on purpose. It is orchestrated, and huge segments of the population dance to the tune.
Tolerance of evil was the beginning point of all of this. When culture moves away from shunning or anathematizing evil, evil begins to take over. It's that simple. If you let Satan on the bus, I guarantee you, Satan will wind up driving the bus.
And then you will be the one not tolerated, the one shunned, the one anathematized. It's already happening. Evil is now driving the American bus.
And evil is beginning to drive the bus for the whole Catholic Church in America. Look at this video from ChurchMilitant.TV if you don't believe me.
As if that were not bad enough, look at this one.
It's all true.
Everywhere I look, evil is in charge. In the Senate; in the House, in the Presidency; in the Supreme Court; in the Church. We might be able to do something about the government, but only the Bishops can re-evangelize themselves. Where do we go when our Bishops have lost their way?
Let us pray. Lord, wash me from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. Create in me a clean heart, and put a right spirit in me, that I might do your will and please you. Lord, lift me from my despair, strengthen my hope, that I might give hope to others. Everywhere I look I see the advance of evil; yet I know that you have already won the battle. I know not the hour nor the day, but I know that your truth will be known to all in due time, when all will be known in your bright light. Lord, what I lack in faith, let me make up in acts of faithfulness; what I lack in hope, let me make up in acts of hopefulness. Lord, strengthen me that I might continue the fight against all odds, to not ever lose hope and never sink into despair, but always advance against untruth. Lord, increase the discernment of your people and turn their hearts. Lord, thy will be done. Amen.

Vic, old buddy, I have largely agreed with everything you have written so far, until I red this. When you say the bishops are anti-American I think you have gone a "bridge too far." You are right to attack their softness on doctrine and their seeming support (or lack of opposition) to a lot of kinds of sin. But I think they should stay out of politics altogether. That's not their realm, and there should be a separation of church and state. I think they just have political opinions like everyone else; they should just keep a lid on it and go about their duties.

I strongly disagree. See the Church and State page. There is no such Constitutional principle as separation of Church and state. There is a Catholic rule that says a cleric cannot hold any civil office or title without some kind of dispensation from Rome, but there is no legal reason, in civil law, why any cleric cannot speak in public on political issues. In America, I believe it is not only their legal right, but their bound duty and responsibility to uphold what is right and attack what is wrong in the political arena. Which may and should include the Pulpit.
And the majority of American Bishops, just like the Republicrat Party, are indeed cooperating with the goals of Obamunism and the Marxocrat Party, which involve the systematic sidelining and overriding of Constitutional law. And American Constitutional law is what provides and protects religious freedom in the first place. Once the American Constitution goes, so do all the citizen civil rights hard coded into it. Religious liberty in the whole world will have taken a very serious hit.
No one can oppose border integrity of only the USA and not be anti-American, because when you lose all sense of border integrity, you lose all sense of national sovereignty that goes along with it. The Bishops don't oppose the border integrity of any other nation; only this one. They are indeed anti-American.

I must also disagree with Barney. With the New Testament being our guide it shows clearly that Christians are not to shy away from politics when political leaders are fraudulent. Consider that the Pharisees were the religious and political leaders of Ancient Israel when Jesus walked the earth. While Jesus forgave many sinners of their sins, in Matthew 23 we see a different judgement given to the Pharisees. Jesus publicly rebuked them, calling them "hypocrites". Not much has changed, it seems.

What do you think about Glenn Beck and Mercury One gathering charity to feed and clothe the illegal children?
Date: Mon Jul 14 2014
From: Vic Biorseth
I think it's the right thing to do; unfortunately, I also think it is the dead right thing to do. It is quite likely to kill Mercury One, and it may even eventually bring down all other Glenn Beck business and charitable enterprises.
If he raises the million dollar goal this week and goes to the border for some big hurrah, that may be all well and good; but the next week the same task may take two million dollars. And the week after that may take four million dollars.
It's not stopping, or even slowing. It's accelerating. It's just getting rolling. As we said in the article, no one is doing anything to stop it. Obama, the Obamunists and the Marxocrats are quite happy about it, behind the scenes. So is Hillary and so is Kerry. So long as the border is open and no one is being turned back or returned, and so long as it is known that they can get away with it, they will keep coming, in ever increasing numbers, with no end. This could well be the doom of territorial America.
Boehner and the Republicrats are not going to do anything meaningful, or anything other than bluster for the cameras. Obama is not going to close the border, and he is not going to send the children home. No one is going to impeach anyone so long as the Marxocrats own the Senate.
It's going to get worse and worse, more and more heartbreaking, more and more expensive, until America herself is exhausted, and perhaps ended.
It's Cloward-Piven on super steroids.
Elections have consequences.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
