Throughout human history, societies have always been run by the direct application of military force. Tyranny was the beginning point in the development of Politics, and absolute tyranny and brute force has only been ameliorated, "civilized" and reduced somewhat in the most recent very few centuries. But it still exists, and tyranny still holds sway in much of the world today.
America was the first example in world history in which a political system was established that made fixed law - a Constitution - the Supreme Law, over any man or group of men. It is the world's first and only example of a nation ruled by laws, rather than a nation ruled by men or any man.
It put the citizenry - the People - in charge of Politics and the maintenance of civil law and civil government. The Law, not any man, is America's Sovereign Ruler, and the People are second in command. Every man - Presidents, Senators, Congressmen, Supreme Court Justices, all government officials, officers, courts, police and armed forces - is equally subject to the same law. Equal in every legal respect to the lowest member of American society.
I submit that, that political arrangement is unique in all the world.
The Constitution makes the officers who run the government servants, rather than rulers, of the citizenry. They hold office at the discretion of the People. The ratification of the Constitution marked the end of tyranny and tyrannical rule in America.
World Politics have settled into three major governmental arrangements; four, if we count the uniqueness of America sufficient to separate America out from all the rest of Western Civilization.
Both Marxism and Islam have been and are infiltrating Western Civilization nations, including America, and radically affecting Politics in those nations, for the worse.
Marxism advances all over the world through the successful advance of Cultural Marxism in formal education, which represents a master-stroke of Communist strategy aimed at long-term preparation for an eventual invented "popular" revolution. Through Marxist-infected education, the ideology of Marxism is shown in a favorable light, Western, Judaeo-Christian and American history is falsified and demonized, and disaffected, alienated splinter-groups and minorities are created, infuriated against the state, and incentivized to create disorder.
Islam advances all over the world through steady immigration and the promotion of the "Islam is a religion of peace" lie. Islam means submission. Islam calls all the world to fall on its knees in submission to Islam, or die. The doctrine of Taqiyya instructs disciples to lie to non-believers about true Islamic intentions until the immigrant community is strong enough to take over the nation.
These two potentially fatal political infections - of Marxist political thought, and of allowing "peaceful" Moslem communities to grow - are going on all over the world, including right here in America.
Marxism now owns and drives American Marxocrat Party politics. And the American Republicrat Party does nothing to resist that; in fact, the two Parties cooperate in bipartisanship to hasten the demise of Constitutional America. The American Political Parties are so corrupted now that the corruption is visible to all who have eyes. They are owned and operated by the new Donor Class of rich men who finance all Politics and both major Political Parties. The Parties now pay no attention whatsoever to the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land; they now act only to advance the agenda(s) of the Donor Class that owns and operates all effective Political action in America.
The Islamic strategy involves insisting that "Most" Moslems love peace, would never do Jihad and would make good citizens, while those Jihadists over there are outliers, radicals, invalid Moslems and not representative of Islam. They point to ISIS, Al Queda, Taliban, etc., as examples of "corrupted" or "hijacked" or "radical" Islam, to make us look at those groups, rather than at themselves. We waste our attention and effort at straining to detect the ISIS infiltrator or the "radicalized" individual citizen, while the whole Islamic community bides its time until it is strong enough to take over and drive us to our knees in submission.
That's the political situation today.
America will never get back to Constitutional Rule while the Parties exist.

I am sick and tired of hearing of the religion of peace and that we pray to the same god. My God is peace and tranquility and loving. My GOD tells me to love my neighbour as myself and that murder is a mortal sin. My God tells me to be loving to those less well off as myself, for there I go but for the Grace of God. But my God does not tell me to commit suicide by allowing uncivilized animals to control my life and actions. My God tells me to rescue souls. How can you rescue souls when you allow savages to dictate norms?
This is what happens when you allow a demonic religion to be on a equal footing with a religion which knows that God gave Free Will and not ISIS. Free will is frightening to me but, it is also a great gift. I get to choose what I do or do not do and unlike this world there are consequences. No excuses and I myself try my best to mitigate the circumstances by prayer and half hearted sacrifices.
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.
Examining the Religion component in Culture=Religion+Politics. I submit that Religion is the most important factor in the making of Culture.
Examining the Politics component in Culture=Religion+Politics. Politics: Establishing and Modifying Civil Law and Government for a Distinct Culture.
Culture: The Final Product of the formula Culture=Religion+Politics. Comparing Major Contemporary Human Cultures: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
On entering (or avoiding) the Catholic American Discomfort Zone. Let's not talk about Religion or Politics today; it's confrontational and uncomfortable. Let's avoid the Discomfort Zone.
Unique, Distinct, Identifiable Human Culture = Religion + Politics. The Formula [Culture = Religion + Politics] is what makes a distinct, identifiable People a distinct and identifiable People.
The Formula [Culture=Religion+Politics] is Inviolate. Politics merely organize Human Culture around the predominant Religious beliefs of a distinct and identifiable People.
Whether the result means death or rebirth, the American Reset will be painful. America was born in Revolution. If the reset means rebirth, it will only come through re-revolution.
On the Coming Total Global Reset. This Global Reset will touch every aspect of human life, and nothing will be the same again.
America's Extra-Constitutional Self Destructive Politics: Civilization's Doom. How all of our Presidential Candidates build up and support America's Self Destructive Politics.
The Pre-Ordained Club Candidates of Both Parties. The Party Proposes; the Club Disposes; The Media Clears The Way.
The Washington DC economy of bureaucracy is booming amid national depression. While the nation suffers economic depression, the local Washington-New York economy of bureaucracy roars on.
It ain't raining cats and dogs around here; it's raining stupidity. You've heard of trickle-down economics? Well, this is pouring down stupidassery.
[Culture = Religion + Politics] is the inviolate formula of Civilization itself. Culture = Religion + Politics makes a unique, distinct, identifiable People. Take Religion (and religious morality) out of it, and the Culture disintegrates.
Culture=Religion+Politics: The Book. Culture = Religion + Politics is now published and available.

Cultural Restoration, or Destruction, is upon America. One or the other. If the American Nation is destroyed, an American Remnant will restore the American Idea, somewhere.
Awakening to the possibility of taking down the media. Have Republicrat Candidates begun the process of actually taking down the media, or are they just making temporary political points?

Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
"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
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
