Autumn is upon us, and winter is coming. Creatures great and small demonstrate the virtue of industriousness for us. Squirrels busily find and store nuts everywhere. Beavers cut willows and store them near the under-water entrances of their homes, so that food will be available beneath the ice throughout the winter. Most of those who carefully prepare for the winter will survive the winter. Those who do not, will not.
It is the autumn of American national existence, and many are they who do not even see what is coming. Most of those who store food and weapons and prepare themselves and their families will survive the coming global reset. Those who do not, will not.
The most important thing to clean and prepare is our immortal souls.
American Constitutional restoration is not impossible; national destruction is not necessary. But Constitutional America is now so far off the tracks that national destruction is far more likely than restoration. We cannot now hope to get her back on the tracks quickly, or easily, or even peacefully. Constitutional elimination appears inevitable; but the beautiful idea of America will never die, until the end of time.
There will be a Remnant. Just as there was a Remnant, although a very small percentage of the original People, who returned to Jerusalem after the 70 year exile in Babylon. They were called The Poor Of YHWH, or the Anawim. They returned and reconstituted the Kingdom that was lost. God remembered them because of His covenant with their forefathers. I have faith that a similar Remnant will restore America, with God. And they will again sing Psalm 126:3, The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. I don’t know if I will see it, but it will happen, if it pleases God.
The Covenant lives on, through us, who were blessed through Israel (Sir 44:21; Gal 3:8). If we have forgotten the Covenant, God remembers, and He forgives, if we repent and return to Him, and steadfastly hold to the faith.
In other pages we have spoken of our two deadly religious and political enemies, Marxism and Islam. But a worse enemy than those is loose among us, and it is us. It is our collective national soul. Our education system, our news media, our political Parties, our giant bureaucracies, our new, unconstitutional "Ruling Class", our high society, our celebrities, our court system, our entertainment industry, even our scientists, all, and more, work to our religious undoing. With a great demonstration of industriousness. Every major government project or undertaking is based on error or outright falsehood. Purposely.
We have to fix ourselves, before we can unite against any other common enemy. Is that even possible?
The only candidate out there who is directly attacking our almost criminal News Media, and taking a wrecking ball to one of our almost criminal Political Parties, is Donald Trump. And he is doing great damage to our almost criminal Political Correctness movement. He is doing great damage to the almost criminal Ruling Class that owns and operates the Political Parties. But here's the interesting thing about Donald Trump: He is one of them. He has used and abused them all. He has played both sides of every faction against each other. He has always been part of the problem.
And now, he may provide the best possible solution, God help us all. Because he can win, and, unlike the Obamunists and the Marxocrats, he does not hate us, and he does not hate America. He may be as good as we can hope to get. He can win despite the best efforts of the Parties, the Doner-Owners, the News Media and the whole Leftist Upper Class Intelligentsia.
"Establishment" Republicrats are bipartisan cooperators with the opposition, which is to say, they are collaborators with the Marxist agenda to take America down. They are no different than the WWII Italian collaborators with Fascism, or the WWII German collaborators with National Socialism. Traitors, in other words. The ones who can "cross the aisle and cooperate to get things done". Collaborators and cooperators with our mortal enemies.
Most of the "Conservative" Republicrats we sent to Washington have turned out to be traitors to the Constitutional cause. They have betrayed us, and the Constitution. It has happened so repeatedly that there is little room left for trust of any of them. Being burned by the last ten Republicrats makes you wary of number eleven before you even look at him.
Rand Paul is no friend of Israel, and a moral relativist who will never attack unconstitutionally and illegally established national civil rights to such abominations as legal abortion, which have been illegally forced upon us against our will, because they are "Social Issues" and he is a hands-off-the-social-issues Libertarian.
Marco Rubio betrayed us on amnesty, and is now favored by the damned and treacherous "Establishment" Republicrat Party, as is Paul Ryan. Some of the possibly best candidates - Jindal, Santorum, Fiorina - are unlikely to make the final cut, having been cut down by their own Party and a system that is stacked against them.
For a long time, I had an unsolicited ad promoting Ted Cruz at the top of every page of this website, until he voted in the dark to advance the Pan Pacific Trade deal, which was so bad that it could not even stand the light of day. No man of solid principle could ever have voted in the dark for such a hidden and evil and treacherous thing. My faith in Cruz is now shaken.
My only problem with Ben Carson is that he has the smell of Ted Cruz about him, which is to say, he appears to be too good to be true. It is a terrible thing that when you have been stung as many times as we have been stung, your faith in appearances is so shaken as to even be reversed.
There are none. The Marxocrat Party is Marxist, and therefore opposed to Constitutional America and Christianity. Just look at their agenda. Every moral depravity is a plank in their political platform. Every collectivist - redistributionist social program from the Communist Manifesto is a working part of their whole Party agenda.
Political speeches from both Parties frequently asks us to consider which candidate we would trust the most with his finger near the nuclear button. Well, look whose finger is near that button now.
If we take a nuclear hit from Russia, he will not push that button, or retaliate in any way. He is, after all, a Marxist, who hates America.
If we take a nuclear hit from Iran, he will not push that button, or retaliate in any way. He is, after all, a Moslem, who hates America.
He would be more likely to cooperate in our destruction than to oppose it. When has he ever expressed any love of us, or our religion, or our nation, or our Constitution, or the very idea of America? Never. We have elected an enemy of the nation. Twice.
Who knows what time-bomb people he has appointed to high office, in the upper echelons and in the ranks of the military, in the Secret Service, the CIA, the FBI, the Justice Department, the Courts, every American Embassy, etc.? Who knows what he plans to do to us on his way out the door, if we make it through the next election? Who knows whether he will be able to intercede after losing office, when and if some catastrophe brings chaos to Washington?
The Republicrat Party vets no one. They are bipartisan cooperators and co-conspirators with the Marxocrats. The Parties themselves are our national doom.
The only person deserving more credit for the slow taking down of the Mainstream News Media than Donald Trump, would have to be Rush Limbaugh. He and he alone started the "alternative media" sources of news. Before Rush, there were only the three networks and the New York Times. Now, because of Rush, there are all sorts of conservative, i.e., Constitutionalist, sources of news, most especially an explosion of Talk Radio sources. If it wasn't for Rush starting that ball rolling, the few of us that are paying attention wouldn't even know what we know now. America might already be toast.
None of them see the Parties themselves as a national threat. None of them see the education system as a national threat. None of them see the lying News Media as a national threat. None of them see our giant, bloated, unconstitutional bureaucracies as a national threat. None of them see even so much as the existence of an income tax, let alone a graduated income tax, as a national threat. It makes me doubt that any of them (who are not actually proactive Marxists) ever even read the Communist Manifesto, let alone their and our own Constitution.
All of them are talking about what else they can do for us rather than how they can just stop doing stuff for us. We don't need any more of their damned, stinking infrastructure. We don't need to spend our way to prosperity, and we don't need to borrow our way out of debt. We need to be unleashed. We need to be left alone. We need them to put the Constitution back in place and leave us the hell alone.
Will it happen?
I ain't holding my breath.
I haven't heard one single candidate speak of recognizing, let alone condemning, any unconstitutional thing our current government is quite illegally doing, at our expense. Not one of them speaks of simply declaring that which is unconstitutional to be unconstitutional and therefore null and void from that moment on, as the Court did in Maybury v Madison in 1803. Any President could do the same thing. Any Congress could do the same thing. None ever has; perhaps none ever wanted to.
I don't see abortion listed anywhere in Article One Section Eight or anywhere else in the Constitution, so, why did the Court ever even hear any cases related to it? Separation of Church and state is likewise missing from the Constitution, so, why is it now deemed to somehow be "Constitutional"? Health care is not in there. Insurance is not in there. The federal government has no Constitutional business even addressing them, or anything else not in the Constitution.
Do you see homosexuality in there, or any newly imagined into being "genders"? That's funny, neither do I. We cannot seem to see what the Supreme Court sees. So which of us, between us and them, is acting way the hell out of the legitimate and legal scope of their own freaking job descriptions?
If the environment is not listed in Article One Section Eight or mentioned anywhere else in the Constitution, then, why does the EPA even exist? Or any of the other Federal Soviets. I mean Bureaucracies. Rent is not in there. Housing is not in there. Minimum or maximum wages are not in there. International unions are not in there. Welfare is not in there.
In point of fact, the situation is upside down. Things that are in there are now being made illegal. Practicing your Christian religion through the living of your life. Possessing and or/carrying arms. Discriminating in your choice of friends and associates. Saying things the government does not agree with. Speaking out against all this.
They all bloviate and pontificate on this or that, but none of them talk about cutting out whole bureaucracies or gigantic laws or legal precedents by simple declaration of nullity due to obvious, clear, unmistakable unconstitutionality. They all worsen the situation, one way or another. Usually in bipartisan cooperation, to the doom of the Constitution.
But the idea of it will live on.
Do not let their treachery affect your faith in God. He wins in the end. Even if we lose America, keep the faith.
Prepare first your soul, and the souls of your family, and the soul of your nation. Then, be not afraid.

Preparing for the coming national winter is good advice. Those that do will likely come out on the other side intact. America will need those who prepared and endured. The reset will be difficult and fraught with pain and risk. Your advice and direction required courage. I urge you to continue.

Your observation, Vic,that the Federal government should not be involved with environment and abortion and homosexuality, among the others mentioned,because they are not listed it the Constitution is interesting--I never thought of that. But then again these subjects must be addressed somehow, maybe under State? But what I want to say and in Ben Carson's defense, is that he is the only candidate who thinks the Constitution is the absolute guide for our country; that it is a divine inspired writing from God the Father to the people in the new colony of America. And he refuses to accept the political parties, saying the Constitution never intended to have a ruling party--just the people, we the people electing somebody to make sure the laws of the Constitution were carried out. He didn't even want to run for President--he was ready to retire. But says that he feels he must try and turn this land around, with God's help, for his children and grandchildren. It does sound too good to be true. But when a man who professes Jesus Christ to be his Savior, and who told God initially that he didn't want the job of going for the Presidency, but finally said, "God, as long you open the doors, I'll go through them"--well I have to believe in him and his faith in God. I don't see one other candidate who seems capable overall to lead this country. Throughout Biblical history, God has used seemingly unlikely men to fulfill something He wanted done. I personally think that this is a final time, that God is giving the US one more chance for people to get back to Him again. I think He's sickened and just about ready to end it--but is giving us one more time. Who knows for sure, but just maybe Ben Carson is His unlikely way of doing this. I really believe in Ben Carson and feel he's doing God's will. God is and will be with Ben Carson in all things. God bless you, your family, America, and let's pray that the Lord gives us His peace and understanding more than ever in the time ahead of us.

There is very, very little that the American government does these days that is within the scope of the Constitution, and it gets worse not only year by year, but day by day. There is little if anything the current administration has done that can be defended as being Constitutional. Everything they do is out of scope.
I agree with you about Ben Carson, but I am still skeptical and wary, having been burned so many times. I see his religious denomination in pretty much the same light in which I see the Mormonism of Glenn Beck, which is to say, so fatally flawed as to be silly. However, I recognize the committed American citizenship and Christian decency and uprightness to be impeccable in both men. Ben Carson's love of the Constitution appears to be constant. But then, so did it appear to be in so many others. If he wins the nomination, he will get my vote.
However, will he work to undo the Party system? Will he work to destroy the power of the Mainstream Media? Will he work to shut down our multitude of completely unconstitutional bureaus? Will he call for articles of impeachment to be drawn up against Senators, Congressmen and Supreme Court Justices who have directly and repeatedly violated their oaths of office?
I doubt it. But then, neither will any of the other candidates.
God help us.

Sorry; I neglected one of your points. Yes, things not in Article One Section Eight are left to the states and local jurisdictions. See the Abortion page for an example of what "our" Court has unconstitutionally done to us. Abortion is not mentioned in the Constitution and therefore is not subject to federal law, ruling or oversight. Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton unconstitutionally overturned existing representative, legislated law in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
And the Sodomite Activists and the Marxocrats and the Libertarians accuse us of seeking to impose our morality on them. With News Media support. With educational support. With academic support.
They have turned America upside down.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
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.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

The Purpose of this grouping of articles is to highlight the three incompatible geopolitical movements in global contention: American Constitutionalism, Marxism and Islam. And to give evidence to the insidious infiltration of Marxist and Islamic thought, and corrosive evil, into American Culture.
A fixed social moral code, born of religion, is what makes a unique, identifiable People, distinct from other Peoples. Distinct People of a common moral code make civil laws representing and reinforcing their common moral code, via Politics. When a distinctly moral People live within a distinct Political organization they form a distinct and identifiable Human Culture.
Truth is the only thing we can Unite on. Yet Real Truth Divides.
Truth Divides, because Truth Hurts. Any "Truth" that indiscriminately Unites is a False Truth.
Broken Communion with God ultimately causes the broken human community. Man is a social being, in need of community with others. Broken Communion is an unnatural disorder for man.

The Formula [Culture=Religion+Politics] is Inviolate. Politics merely organize Human Culture around the predominant Religious beliefs of a distinct and identifiable People.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
