This world is owned and operated by Satan, the father of all lies. Satan, too, is a created being, but one who is in rebellion against his own creator, and who denies being created, and who sees himself as a creator, and even as THE Creator. And who would have us believe that we, too, can be like him, knowing right from wrong and good from evil.
He appears to actually believe his own lies.
Ultimately, this is a self rebelling against itself, and seeking justification from others for its own nonsensical rebellion. To get others to join the rebellion. In the end, each one's own created being cannot be denied.
We have often said that everything in this world is a distraction from recognition of and proper thanksgiving to the Creator.
Nevertheless, Satan makes war on the Truth, Who is God. And this one fact of life is at the root of all human wars, past, present and future.
Popular trends of youth, or 'Pop Culture' is, almost always, rebellious against tradition. Led by the stars of popular celebrity, the best example of that rebellion against parental authority, tradition and Christian religion is this whole "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll" popular theme.
Did you ever wonder why rock bands, rock stars, movie-makers, bikers, hot-rodders, teenagers and middle-aged and older arrested-adolescents, all love, seek, buy, create and sell and display blatantly diabolical symbols, and Satanic or demonic imagery and art?
Skulls, bones, dragons, death's heads, serpents, pentagrams, devils, semi-nude or nude figures in suggestive poses, goat-men, walking-dead, etc., etc., etc., on tattoos, on cars, bikes, shirts, jackets, gang emblems, flags, stage sets, stage make-up and costumes, pop-fashion and even wall art. Why?
First, it's a rebellion against mommy and daddy and rules; second, it's a rebellion against tradition and religion, popularly held to be superstition. But at the ultimate root of it all, it's a rebellion against the Creator, and against belief in actually having been created.
A rebellion against the Truth, Who is God. And most of the rebels don't even know it. They don't even begin to know what it's all about. Long ago belief in God or an afterlife or any supernatural existence was educated out of them and popularly dropped. Their own parents weren't too strong on it, and they're rebelling against the already weak faith traditions of their own parents. And the latest generations of rebels think themselves and their kind as super-sophisticated, and view people who still hold to any kind of Judaeo-Christian faith as unsophisticated to the point of being hopelessly backward thinking and wrong about everything.
The overall rebellion has been abuilding since the first lie in the garden. And the rebellion got gazillions of branch-offices started with Nimrod's Tower and has been spreading out, growing new branches ever since.
Those who most love creation - hunters, fishermen, campers, bird-watchers, animal lovers, plant lovers, tourists, photographers, etc. - but who do not believe it is all created out of nothing, do not see themselves as what they are, which is, idolaters. They have made an idol out of creation. They see creation as being sacred, and man as being evil, because they see mankind as being destructive of sacred creation, or, as they put it, nature.
Nature is sacred; man is evil, because man is opposed to nature, and man is somehow unnatural and even anti-natural in his very being.
They learned that in school. Say thank you to Cultural Marxism.
That is now the most popular and the most "sophisticated' point of view, seemingly everywhere you look today. Especially in all formal education.
But this demonizing of humankind carries with it the demonization of the one and only one Creator, and thus, it gives rise the the promotion of false gods, simply because they are false, and thus they (or belief in them) oppose the one and only one real God.
Thus we see new public monuments to Satan raised up and blessed, while American courts high and low remove Christian monuments. Legally. Unconstitutional though it may be, if a court did it, then it is held to be 'legal'.
In this once Christian nation, which was once known as "one nation under God", we see Christian monuments being taken down and we see only rabidly anti-Christian monuments - celebrating Satanism, Islam, Wica, etc. - being raised up and legally protected as "freedom of religion". If it opposes God and if it opposes Judaeo-Christian morality, Satan - and the Marxocrat Party - will sponsor, defend and grow it.
It's the same with sin and vice, which were once anathematized, but now are promoted, celebrated, encouraged and even protected by law.
Sodomy, sexual perversions of all kinds and sexual licentiousness are the prime examples. Not only are they no longer anathematized, but those who still dare to anathematize them and speak any ill whatsoever against them are themselves anathematized, and even charged with 'hate' crimes.
Sinners are heroic now; those who anathematize sin are bigots now.
Again, this didn't happen overnight; but fewer and fewer are they who are standing up against it. And fewer still are those who even see it for what it is.
Most are too busy to worry about it, or were, before the Wuhan Lab Virus hit and shut everything down.
Work time was supplemented with recreation time; ball games and hotdogs, Footbal and tail-gate parties, fishing, swimming, skiiing, whatevering, other than, of course, Church going.
As we keep saying, everything in this world is a distraction from recognition of and proper thanksgiving to the Creator.
That's bad enough, but the worst distraction is that offered by false gods.
Allah is the false god of Islam, invented by Mohammed who pretended to be the sole prophet of Allah, the false god he invented.
As I write these words Mohammed's disciples are setting about the destruction of all civilizing, that is non-Islamic, decencies now existing in Afghanistan. Everyone is horrified at what they are doing to people, and yet, they are doing exactly and precisely what Mohammed said for them to do.
Mohammed said he would make unbelievers and his enemies swoon with terror, and he not only said it, but he actually did it. With his words, recorded in the Koran, and with his own personal actions, he set the example to be followed by his disciples, and the Taliban are following his orders and his examples in the cruel things they are doing.
The Taliban, Al Quaeda, ISIS and other Jihadist groups are not 'hijacked' Islam, or 'radical' Islam, or 'Islamism' Islam; they represent the truest form of Islam called for by Mohammed and the Koran, and all Moslems know it. It is the Moslems who do not participate in Jihad and, much more rarely, the ones who do not even support and hide and feed Jihadists, who are the only radicals within the fraud. I mean faith.
The reason Afghanistan is so ungovernable, and so untamable, is that it is so Islamic.
Not that the Afghan population at large and in toto wants to be Islamic. But they are most afraid of stopping being Islamic in any Islamic land, because to convert out of Islam is to incur an automatic Islamic death sentence upon oneself. Mohammed and the Koran have said so, and that's final. The word Islam does not mean peace; it means submission. Submit or die. And if you ever stop submitting, you die.
So the Afghan will align with whoever is most in power and who has gained the most submission of everyone around, but only so long as that 'leader' is most in power. Some of them aligned with the Russians when they were the most powerful players on the scene, but as soon as the Russians left, they switched their allegiance back to someone else who was coming back into power.
And we see the same things playing out now that Comrade President JoBama O'Biden has ordered a cut-and-run of Americans out of Afghanistan. All the former allied native forces rushed to hand over their American weapons and tanks and planes to the Taliban, in hopes of joining them and not being executed by them, and becoming the executioners more than the executed, because once again, the writing was on the wall.
The area was already hopelessly tribal and ungovernable long before Mohammed lived, as Alexander the Great learned. They don't call it the graveyard of empires for nothing, and Islam has only made that situation worse. It is a land of war; if no one from outside was trying to conquer or occupy or rule it, it would be at war with itself. That is the nature of warlord-tribal chieftains and their followers.
While some or even many Islamic leaders have absolutely committed followers, some even fanatically so, for the most part the Afghan fighter will go with the flow, looking out for number one, and aligning and realigning with the most powerful leader on the scene at any moment in time.
The problem, you see, isn't the Taliban. Or Al Quaeda. Or ISIS. We look at them as the enemy; but the real enemy is what they all come out of, and that is Islam. If it wasn't for Islam, there would be no Taliban, or Al Quaeda, or ISIS; there would not have been an Ottoman Empire. There may not have even ever been a world-wide black slave trade.
The enemy is more Islam than it is Jihad, because Jihad comes out of Islam, exclusively. Outside of Islam there is no such thing as Jihad.
"Nation-building" in Afghanistan is quite impossible, because Afghanistan is not a nation with a government; it is a hodgepodge of warlike tribes led by a turf-jealous chieftains, some of whom may be Caliph wannabes, and who themselves are constantly changing and being replaced, by political intrigue and plot if not generational changes. Any sitting 'government' over all of Afghanistan is weak, and also quite temporary at best, the same as all historic invaders and occupiers.
American forces in Afghanistan suffered under mission-creep for twenty years, until the final mission had become 'get in there and defend yourselves and the ground you occupy' with no identified or identifiable 'victory' or ultimate goal. Just defend your ground, forever and ever.
Even if the mission changed to become 'wipe out the Taliban', which couldn't be done, but let's say we did it, and the Taliban was wiped out: It would not be over, because Afghanistan would still be hopelessly Islamic. Someone else would rise up to fill the Taliban's old sandals.
If the mission is claimed to be to keep Islam from plotting more 9/11 events against us and training Jihadists to carry them out, it has already failed, because Islam can do those things all over the world, as we said in ForeverWar. They don't need to do them strictly in Afghanistan.
It's an ideologigal war, and we are fighting it territorially.
That's a hopeless strategy.
Meanwhile, we are losing an ideological war with Communism right here in America, as the infamous 1619 Project proves, inexorably advancing against our true 1776 history, setting us against each other, and edging us ever closer to another Civil War against each other.
Right here in America.
Proving our point that if you ever fail to anathematize evil, eventually, evil will end up anathematizing you.
Once again, in boring historical repetition, Marxism, Islam and Immorality, the three great weapons of Satan against humankind, unite to crush the two liberating forces of mankind in the world: the Judaeo-Christian religions, and the absolutely unique USA.
In the final decisive conflict, which is already raging around our ears, it is those who still recognize and worship the Creator Who frees us from the world, and those who still recognize the liberating Constitution of America, against the determined Islamo-Commie-Homo onslaught.
It is those who recognize their own Creator against those who deny Him and/or hate and oppose Him.
That, right there, is at the real root of all wars, whether we see it or not.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

“Amen. AMEN. AMEN!”
Dear God in heaven, get the Truths in this article out to the people of this nation before we have squandered all the blessings of our nation’s founding covenant with You. Thank You for Your patient goodness and mercy. There are many yet, who have NOT taken the knee to Ba’al. Stir their hearts to stand and take action as the Spirit moves them in whatever way is proper to Your call upon their life as parents, business persons, professionals, teachers, students, clergy, religious, skilled laborers, giggers, retired or unemployed. In the Holy Name of Jesus, Amen.
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.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"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
