Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center
Vic Biorseth, Thursday, July
The strategy of Satan in destroying souls is to reverse truth, turn it around or upside down, and make falsehood "true" in the corrupted minds of the deceived. He begins by emphasizing the temporary physical world over the permanent spiritual world. To draw more and more attention to the pleasures of the here and now, at the expense of everlasting life, even, eventually, to the point that the hereafter is dropped and completely forgotten.
The more innocent and inexperienced the soul, the more susceptible it is to being corrupted by falsehoods, therefore the need for the careful guardianship, training and proper raising of children into the fulness of Truth. Wisdom comes slowly to most, and many souls are corrupted long before wisdom arrives.
Consider the first lie:
He begins with a misleading question, regarding "any" tree in the garden. He ends by making God out to be a liar, and initiating the idea that a sin - a disobedience to God - might be good, rather than bad. And it's all wrapped up in the false premise that one be become like God, and decide for himself what is good and what is evil.
Just like Satan.
How many nominal Christians raise their children to "make your own decision" regarding faith and salvation? How many today "window shop" through various religions and superstitions to find the one that's most convenient, or "right" for them, by their own judgment? How many even even start their own new denominations, or whole new religions? How many abandon the Body of Christ entirely, as "Institutional", and find temporary solace in the "religion" of nature, or the environment or some such convenient thing.
Today, the Catholic Church, the one and only Christian Church founded by Jesus Christ Himself, is roundly condemned by a majority of "Christian faithful" in America and the world, not so much any more because of the lies of the Likes of Luther and Calvin, but more because it's an "All or Nothing", and a "My Way or the Highway" religion, and that is just too "Judgmental" and far too inconvenient to more worldly lifestyles. Catholicism is Judgmental.
So, who is the Judge, in this thinking? Man, or God?
There is no wisdom in this thinking; quite the opposite. Wherever you do not find truth, you do not find wisdom. Truth must be taught; if Truth is properly taught, and learned, wisdom will follow. Then, innocence will be protected by wisdom.
But many Catholic clerics of all ranks have betrayed this instruction. They, too, contribute to progressive destruction of truth. Many Bishops and Priests teach the faithful the exact opposite of what Jesus taught, that many if not all make it to heaven, and that few if any wind up in hell.
Nevertheless, many Bishops and Priests induce people to not worry about it, because there is "reason" to assume that there may be nobody at all in hell, and even Judas may have been saved. Don't worry about what Jesus said about him. Nothing to see here; go back to sleep.
When Catholic clerics join the chorus promoting the judgment of the individual over the judgment of God, the progressive lie has attained its goal: Men falsely believe they can be like God, judging for themselves what is good and what is evil.
The unconstitutional progressive secularization of the American government and of American society was preceded by the progressive destruction of Christian faith and morality. Political Progressivism has been previously addressed in Progressivism, Progressive America and Glenn Beck Progressivism. The biggest Progressive lie is the one that insists on ignoring differences to "Bring us all together" and to "Unite in common cause", even after having propagandized into believing that "Diversity" is good, and that "Multiculturalism" is better than "Culture".
We have said that Truth Divides. We have said that "Diversity" is an evil tool for the Promotion of Chaos and Disorder. We have shown that Culture=Religion+Politics, and that our unique, originally designed Christian American Politics are being destroyed by our increasingly powerful but completely unconstitutional Political Parties. The Parties, not our Constitution, are running our whole government. Illegally so. And nobody even notices.
That's how Progressivism works.
And that's how Marxism got control of our government, first through the Parties, and then through the Marxocrat Party's control of the three branches of government, despite what the Constitution had to say about it. With the full bipartisan cooperation and support of the equally corrupted Republicrat Party. Again, nobody notices.
It's how you boil the comfortable frog, by slowly cranking up the heat.
Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, and his Marxocrat Party have been growing, feeding, inflaming and stoking what Rush Limbaugh refers to as the American Grievance Industry to white hot anger, for the purpose of inciting Revolution. There's all the Anti-Capitalist and Anti-American false history and false education; there's all the invented Divide and Conquer "movements", all backed up by the daily pro-Marxist propaganda from our Mainstream News Media.
Note well that:
The current brouhaha over Trump's latest suggestion, after the Russians were accused of hacking the DNC's email server, that maybe the Russians could find Madam Hillary's 30,000 deleted illegal emails, presents a classic example of just how corrupt the whole system has become, and just how stupid they all think the American voters are.
They accused Trump of treason over this, of all things. They, who daily commit treason against the Constitution. They, who's very Party's existence, let alone agenda, is a direct violation of the Constitution they all falsely swore to uphold.
How was Trump's sarcastic remark construed to be treason?
Well, as they all took turns claiming, he was "asking" the Russians to hack into Hillary's illegal secret personal email server, to recover the perfectly innocent 30,000 emails relating to her yoga exercises and wedding plans for her daughter's wedding.
Note this well: they are not that stupid; they hope we are that stupid.
And many died-in-the-wool Marxocrat voters may well be that stupid. But nowhere near any majority of American voters.
First, not only was Madam Hillary's illegal server wiped, but it isn't even on-line any more. How, pray tell, could the Russians or anyone else hack into a device that no longer exists on-line?
Second, they seem to be stating that there actually was government business in those 30,000 deleted emails, perhaps information vital to national security. Which up until now they have denied.
Third, emails deleted off of a server exist elsewhere, and we all know that. Every email had a sender and a receiver, often more than one, and often there were email "chains" holding copies of all emails pertinent to the ongoing conversation. You send one email out there, and it's all over the place, and retrievable from many sources, other than all the redundant backup email servers from everybody involved in the original email. And we all know that.
The only reason they were not recovered was due to orders to not recover them, pure and simple, and we all know that, too.
But they would have us believe that the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, let alone the State Department itself and the whole government, with all their forensic data analysis and deep data mining capabilities could not, and therefore did not, find any of these 30,000 deleted emails off of Madam Hillary's illegal email server. I'm sorry, but that just defies all credibility.
Trump's 'Maybe the Russians can find them' was a hard sarcastic slap in the face of the whole lying Marxocrat Convention full of them.
And they didn't even get it. Or, they hope you don't get it.
Because they are actually the ones who are anti-American Marxists, not the Donald. They prove it with everything in their agenda, everything they have done, and everything they are doing.
Go back to our Declaration, and you will see that these four Natural Law civil rights were the very reason the Constitution was written, which is to say, the sole reason the nation was "Constituted" was to protect these four rights. All Constitutional rights flow from these four American foundational rights. And you will see that when these rights are challenged by government, it is our responsibility to take it down and re-institute proper Constitutional government.
That's what elections are supposed to be for; but the unconstitutional Parties have taken over elections, as well as the proper legislation, execution and adjudication of law.
Every grand social engineering experiment they push on the citizenry proves they are out to destroy the family. From no-fault divorce, to the elimination of the father in black families, to nation-wide abortion "rights", to their false propaganda claiming homosexuals are born that way, to their educationally inducing sexual identity crises in other people's little children to make them think they are other than what they are, to alienating children from their own families and churches and social institutions.
The title of Madam Hillary's book says it all:
It Takes A Commune To Raise A Child.
(I mean Village.)
Well, it's coming to a head, one way or another. The Trumpster may turn out to be the tool with which to begin the turnaround, because he is the absolute outsider. His own Party opposes him to the point that many of the leading members of the Party intend to vote for Madam Hillary, which tells you something about their patriotism.
Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, does not intend to see all of his Hegelian Progressive efforts thus far go into crash and burn mode. He is ready to switch to the Machiavellian plan of causing widespread disorder, and then crushing it, and taking over, a la Adolph Hitler.
Even as much as he has weakened our military and seeded it with disruption, in the form of force-fitting Marxists, Moslems, women, gangsters, homosexuals and tranies into combat units, both in the ranks and among the officers, as yet the military is still too unlikely to take his side in any coup attempt. They swore an oath of allegiance to the Constitution. Even under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, for the most part, they will disobey any illegal order. Attacking the citizenry would be unconstitutional, and they all swore to uphold the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. That includes him. And he knows it.
The American military will not take down local or state law enforcement.
That's why he's been building his own paramilitary police forces, by weaponizing and SWAT-equiping all the unconstitutional bureaucracies. The TSA has been morphed into a police force, operating outside the airports and ports of entry. But that ain't all; even Parks service, and even the EPA, and HUD, and who knows what others, have been armed and trained with military weapons, SWAT equpiment and tactics, and armored vehicles like MRAPs.
Well, I suppose the EPA might need SWAT teams in squadrons of MRAPs in case someone somewhere improperly separated their recyclables. Can't have that. It's the environment, after all.
He has been doing just that.
Meanwhile, he has been encouraging, egging on and feeding multiple agent provocateur groups such as the Black Lives Matter cop killers, who aren't smart enough to figure out they're being set up for sacrificial slaughter. The ends justify the means.
And, meanwhile, the Justice Department is doing all it can do to hamstring local law enforcement, unconstitutionally taking over as much local authority as possible, ordering local police into Maoist re-education to "understand the rage" and other such nonsense.
You remember how, every major election, there is always an "October Surprise" sprung by the Marxocrats, to upset the Republicrat apple cart right before the election? Some scandal breaking, or some hot news item, or some disqualifying factor of some candidate or some Party operative, to swing the election away from the popular vote.
This October could be a real biggee, if the cards fall right for Comrade Obama, peace be upon him. He's just waiting for the next big disruptive event, and hoping it will be big enough to "require" a crack down.
George Soros will back him; so will the UN, and the US Chamber of Commerce, and the Big Banks, and the Big Donors, and the whole Establishment Club. They all hate America, as Constituted. They all seek power and recognition and position and riches and glory for themselves.
Islamic enclaves in America are another potential bomb that could go off any time at all, or many times. The Marxocrats would have us believe that no one who practices the religion of Islam will ever be moved by the Koran to do the things the Koran tells them to do to us.
Like terrorize us, or kill us. Or dismember us somehow, like beheading us, or striking off our fingers, or or cutting off a hand and a foot on opposite sides and then watching us squirm and suffer in the dirt until we die. Or maybe crucifying us, so that the birds can begin feeding on our heads before we die.
The Koran tells Moslems to do that to us. It's part of Jihad, the central theme of the whole "religion". Those followers who don't have the stomach for it or can't do it for whatever reason are called to support those who do; to shelter them and hide them and equip them, and to lie for them and about them. That's what Islam is about.
The central doctrine, the very purpose for being of Islam, is to destroy us completely, so that eventually we will no longer exist. But you're not supposed to know that. That's radical. That's not real Islam. It's a Misinterpretation. Just because it's in the Koran doesn't mean it's so.
Seriously. Islam is peace. No, really. Go back to sleep.
The USCCB is involved in all this multicultural all inclusive crapola up to its ears. The USCCB quietly operates as a wing of the Marxocrat Party, in collusion with its operatives, as we said in the Crony Catholicism page and elsewhere herein. It is a Political Party with an agenda of its own, just like our secular Political Parties. Because it is a Political Party, it cannot be trusted to consistently preach the same message, because political agendas change over time, while Truth never changes. The Church is supposed to be the guardian of Truth; but the USCCB is not the Church; it is a Party. It has another agenda.
This is, or it had better be, a time of dividing. Truth divides. It is true that we must unite on our foundational Christian American Politics, but we can only do that after we separate ourselves from all that opposes that American Foundation.
The most important message Jesus gave us was the announcement of the Kingdom. It is here. Not up there. Right here, right now. It is the keys to this Kingdom that He gave to Peter before He ascended. It is to this Kingdom that He gave to Peter and the Apostles the power to bind and to loose. The "Keys" was a symbol, and an office, and an authority.
The man who wore a symbol of a key on his shoulder was a chief steward, or a prime minister, authorized by the King to rule in his absence. Whatever he opened would remain open, whatever he closed would remain closed. This meant that he could shut people into prison, or he could release people from prison, as he willed.
Over and over again, Jesus described the Kingdom, and in terms that always involved dividing, between those who would follow Him, and those who would not. Of their own free will.
We had better begin dividing. We will survive as a Christian culture, or we will go down as a multiculture, whatever that is. We cannot gather with people who intend to kill us and destroy our religion. Nor can we gather with people who intend to enslave us and suppress our religion. See the Winnowing Pages.
The fact that we do not kill homosexuals as the Moslems do does not mean that we should maintain unconstitutional "Constitutional" rights for homosexuals at the national level. That's a denial of subsidiarity, and a violation of the 10th Amendment. Just like abortion. Just like a million other things. States and local jurisdictions can legislate for or against these things, without federal government interference, and people can vote with their feet and move if they don't like it.
If it's not in Article One Section Eight, the federal government has no Constitutional authority to even address it, whether pro or con. But nobody even reads the Constitution any more, since the Parties took over the government.
It was the purposeful destruction of our economy, our medical care, our border integrity, our personal safety, our education system, our energy system, our national defense, our foreign policy and, basically, our liberty, that brought about the whole Trump Phenomenon.
Pray that Trump will win, that he will discover the Constitution, and that he will use it to break the Parties and the Club that's unconstitutionally running us into the ground, on purpose. After all, the entire Establishment is attacking him; he ought to attack them back. The Constitution will allow him to do that, if he reads it.
We had better start dividing enemies out from our company, because, as the elites will learn, pride goeth before a fall.
He will divide.
He will make all things new.
He will undo Satan's work of reversing truth, by putting it aright again.
The proud will be humbled, and the humble will be glorified.
The last will be first, and the first will be last.
Glory be to God.
