Freedom of Religion, Speech, Press, etc., is today extended far beyond what the America's Founders and the Constitution's Framers intended. Once citizens who are clearly opposed to those Constitutional rights can run for, win and hold high office in which they take an oath of office to uphold the Constitution, the rights themselves, and the Constitution that protects them, are doomed. But, you ask, how could someone who opposes what the Constitution says be elected or appointed and approved to high Constitutional office? By political sublimation of Constitutional Principle to Pure Party Politics.
By Treachery would be a simpler way of saying the same thing.
What is happening in the Catholic Church among Bishops who condone if not bless if not participate in various mortally sinful behaviors is precisely what is happening in American high political office, where anti-American and anti-Constitution officials actually hold America's highest Constitutional offices.
I'll let Michael Voris of Church Militant address the treachery going on inside the Church; click the image to the right to view his latest video on the subject.
It's all the same thing. Sublimation of Principle to Popular Consensus. Descent into Populism. Pop-Culture. Popular fad-of-the-moment driving the rules of behavior, and even driving the law. Satan has been let on the bus, and Satan is now driving the bus. Surprise!
Voltaire's I disagree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it! provides the popular fuel for this treacherous movement. Free speech is a wonderful thing, out in the public square.
But not in Constitutional office.
And not in Military Service.
No one who opposes freedom of speech, just as one example of a Constitutional Right of the American Citizenry, should be trusted in any office requiring the swearing of an oath off office to uphold the right to free speech. Or Religion. Or Press. Or any other Constitutional Right.
How did America ever get to the point of allowing Marxists, of any variety whatsoever, to run for, let alone be elected to any high office? Marxism is absolutely antithetical to the whole of the American Constitution. There is no variation, branch or sub-branch of Marxism that does not oppose American Constitutional Rights.
Communism, Socialism, Crony-Capitalism leading to Fascism or National Socialism, Progressivism, Social Democracy, Democratic Socialism, Collectivism, Redistributionism, Egalitarianism, Demand Side Economics, Control of any Private Sector activity, Control of Education, Control of Press, etc., etc., etc., all, oppose Liberty, Private Property and thus the Pursuit of Happiness. Marxism, in every single variant, opposes everything America stands for. Yet Marxists use Freedom of Speech to gain office in America from which they can and do seek to restrict Freedom of Speech.
Today Marxism literally owns one of America's two major Political Parties and receives absolutely no resistance from the other one. Marxists who quite typically hate and oppose religion hold high Constitutional office in a nation that is supposed to protect religious exercise. And they work to suppress it. From all three branches of Constitutional Government.
If any ideology or geopolitical movement is worse for America than Marxism, it would be Islam. And, yes, we have Moslems in high Constitutional office in America today. And imbedded all over our Military. Islam is a "religion" of utter barbarity and savagery. It makes its living by conquest, piracy, slavery, ransom and tribute. Islam flat out opposes Freedom of Speech, Press, Religion, Association, etc., let alone Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Just as there is no possible reconciliation between the American Constitution and Marxism, there is no possible reconciliation between the American Constitution and Islam.
"But it's only the Radical Islamists who pose a problem" say the defenders of Islam. A false statement. The "Problem" is with Islam itself, and with what Mohammed himself said and did, and what the Koran itself says. Islam is Not peace. Islam is only peaceful when and where Islam dominates, and where all are either converted to Islam, under brutal subjugation to Islam, or dead. Then there is peace.
The fact that Sharia Law is not spelled out in concrete terms in the Koran highlights the real problem with Islam. Islam has no Pope, and no absolute authority to settle whatever is in dispute within Islam. So, there are five major schools of jurisprudence for Sharia Law, and there are wildly divergent applications of Sharia all over the world. (The five major schools are described in Islam Opposes America, if you want to read about them. All are antithetical to America and her Constitution.)
The Catholic Church has her Pope and her Bishops in concert with the Pope to keep the Church strictly within Revealed Truth, forever. Catholicism is thus a religion of Ultimate Truth, and Truth is fixed forever. Truth does not change; man cannot change Truth.
America has her Constitution, written down in plain English, which makes her a nation of laws and not merely a nation of men. The Law, as written, is supreme, and no man is above the law, or not subject to it. That's what it means to be a nation of laws and not merely another nation of men. We are not ruled by men, but by the Law, and our Supreme Law is our Constitution.
Islam has no such fixed peg. Islam is a nation of men and not laws.
"The Law" is whatever the man or men in charge at the moment say it is. And so it is with Marxism, whenever it achieves its true but hidden Machiavellian goal of dictatorship. Marxism would then be a nation (or a global system) of men, not of the law. The law would be subject to men rather than the other way round.
The major point that Marxism and Islam hold in common, and the only thing that really unites them, is their deadly opposition to us. Marxism and Islam are two different manifestations of organized evil and hatred. Thus, they unite in evil, and in evil intent toward us. Each has its own multi-fingered, continuously evolving program of global conquest, and we are the major stumbling block for both of them.
So how did we get to this point, where committed Marxists and committed Moslems now hold high office in America, and serve in the ranks of her military, where they were required to swear a false oath to uphold and defend the Constitution that they oppose?
By allowing Free Speech to go beyond the public square and enter into our internal politics. We have elected Marxists and Moslems into high office, disregarding their philosophical, ideological and religious opposition to America and everything she stands for, especially her Constitution.
When Political Parties were born, President Washington's warning was realized. The Parties took over the rule of the nation, displacing the Constitution. We are now ruled, not by the Constitution, but by Political Party Agenda. Principle has been dropped. The Constitution is ignored.
That's why we wrote Two Party Treason and No Party America. We've got to get out from under the Party System and go back to Original American Political Contests. A return to original principles would mean that there would be no Left and no Right here; there would be that which is Constitutional, and that which is not. It would mean a reeducation of the people in Truth, rather than the Leftist indoctrination and propaganda that passes today for education and news reporting.
America will go back to Constitutional Absolutism, or she will go out of business. We cannot keep doing what we are doing now and come out of it a nation of laws.
But there is another major player opposing the Constitution, and that is the Mainstream News Media. When the Democrat Party went totally Marxist and morphed into the Marxocrat Party, their wholly-owned Marxocrat Media went right along with them. Just as there is no mention of any Political Party in Article One Section Eight of the Constitution, there is no mention of the Press in there either. The Press is "free" and independent of the government, not an integral part of it. It is supposed to be an independent part of the private sector, and not in bed with the government or any Political Party.
That's the way is is supposed to be; not the way it is.
America desperately needs high office holders committed to taking down the Media and kicking it out of government, as recommended in New Way Politics. It is they - the Marxocrat Party News Media - who distort Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Press to suppress speech and press that speaks truth. They do the heavy lifting for Marxism in America.
That's why you hear the terms homophobia and Islamophobia tossed around daily in the news, but you will never hear terms like heterophobia or Christaphobia invented or uttered, ever. It's a one way street. There is no such mental illness in the first place; homophobia and Islamophobia are invented propaganda terms used to denigrate anyone who calls sodomy a sin or Islam barbaric.
But, you see, sodomy is a sin, and Islam is barbaric. Say one word against the prophet and they'll kill you. That's barbaric. There's no getting around it. But we are called homophobes and Islamophobes all the time, daily, in fact, and we don't kill anyone over it. That's the real difference between civilization and barbarians.
Many think our only problem with Islam is Islamic Sharia law; they are wrong. Our primary problem is with Islamic Jihad, or Holy War, and therefore, our problem is with the Koran. Jihad is all over the Koran; there is no separating it out. Jihad is so important to Islam that it may be close to impossible for any true Islamic cleric to preach Islam for very long without preaching Jihad. So long as the Koran exists, Jihad will be "reborn" among followers. And Jihad requires disciples of Islam to convert us, subjugate us or kill us. It's just black and white.
You show me a Marxist or a Moslem and I'll show you an ends justify the means liar. And the Media favors Marxism and Islam over America. That's the way it is. The Media is just as anti-American as our two Political Parties. The three things we need to weaken if not abolish to get back to being a nation of laws and not merely of men are:
I don't know how to completely rid ourselves of Political Parties, our Marxist Media and the need for Big Money to run for office, and to get back to Constitutional Absolutism; I wish I did. but I can tell you this: The Political Candidate who comes up with a viable plan to do it is likely to start the political landslide necessary to get this country back on the path of truth and righteousness.
And return us to being a nation of laws, and not of mere men.

I recently discovered a reason why there is next to no opposition to the Democrats: the U.S. government is run by a shadow government of people from banks, business, academia and politics. The shadow government members are selected by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski who formed the Trilateral Commission in 1972. Jimmy Carter was selected as a commissioner and then 'groomed' by Brzezinski for his run at the presidency. The Carter Administration had at least 20 members of the Trilateral Commission in senior positions. And each presidency since then has had Trilateral Commissioners in senior positions. Well, they can't stay as Trilateral Commissioners while they are on Shadow Government Duty but there is nothing to say that they can't - and aren't - Commissioners once their 'term' is over.
I learned that and a whole lot more in a book by economist and author Patrick Wood. The book (Feb. 2015) is Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. He has a website www.technocracyrising.com where you can link to at least two recorded interviews. It isn't cheering news but it is valuable information which is what we need in order to figure out how to set things straight. I think Wood is not Catholic but he is definitely Christian. He sees the Earth Charter as the threat that it is to Christianity and to sovereignty and also talks about how the mega-churches have turned Protestantism into purpose-driven community meetings.
All of that is not to say that transnational corporations are not controlling the government by other means. You might, for example, have seen the Minority Senate Report on Foundations and Non-governmental organizations and/or Ron Arnold's book that covers the subject.
Cordelia is not my real name and I chose it because it suggests honesty and a good heart. I confess this so that I won't feel guilty when I write in disguise to you again.

I have for many years read around and about this particular New World Order variant without delving into the specifics of it. It is a movement similar if not related to those of other Grand Conspirators of Globalism, such as George Soros. These ideas and movements and conspiracies all derive from the same place: the conceit of elitists convinced that the elite should run the world, to save it from itself, because the non-elite are not smart enough to rule themselves. Some of these elitists hold to that seemingly altruistic idea, and some of them are just brutally narcissistic and greedy. Little different than the monarchs of old. They are Monarch Wannabes.
The reason I never delved any deeper into this particular anti-Constitution movement is that I immediately recognized its value to Marxism, and I am certain that Marxism is involved in it in some way, because it is a global movement opportunity too good for Marxism to pass up. You can bet that there are Marxists who are on that global bus if not already driving it.
Bottom line, we cannot totally defeat these ideas or ideologies, just as we cannot totally defeat Satan in this world. It is, after all, his world. The next best thing we can do is get ourselves separated from them. The only way I see to do that now, in America, is to destroy the political Party system that is running America outside the Constitution.
We don't even have purely American political conventions to select our candidates any more. We have Party conventions, to select Party candidates, to run on Party platforms, not Principle. Neither Party supports the Constitution, or we wouldn't be in this mess.

This timely piece by Church Militant seems appropriate for inclusion in this discussion. Henry the Eighth exemplifies the problem with Monarchy, or, Nations of Men, as opposed to our Nation of Laws. Sooner or later, a nation of men winds up with an impetuous man-child ruled by passion and impulse, and principle takes a back seat to mere satisfaction of lust.
Today, Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is ruling America exactly as if he were a dictator rather than a representative and a guardian of the Constitution. He is doing the things a dictator does, and no one is stopping him. We are now, as a matter of practical fact, a dictatorship, whether that simple practical fact is widely recognized or not. It remains a practical fact. And history is again repeating itself.
I wonder how many of our more-political-than-theological current Catholic clerics are prepared for a mass government looting of Catholic property "for the common good" right here in America? When Catholic property is taken and Catholics are killed here, as they were in Luther's Germany, and as they were in Henry's England, I wonder how many of our clerics will join in, for personal gain, if not survival. As so many treacherous Catholic clerics did in the European Reformation and in the English Reformation.
And I wonder how many of them do not even begin to realize that they are nothing more than tools, means to an end, of mere temporary use to the evil one.

Updated last few paragraphs to include warning against External or Lesser Jihad, or Holy War, which is an integral part of Islam, and which cannot be separated out of it. Sharia Law implementation, while problematic for civilization, should be of lesser concern than the original Islamic call to never ending war against the entire non-Islamic world.
Also highlighted the need for American politics to get out from under

What you have to say - actually, the way you say it - is not fit for print here, so it is not published. But you raise some interesting points, indicating that you may be more misinformed and mal-educated than merely racist and full of racial hatred. So, while not publishing your filthy rant, we will respond to your more salient points.

It's the bottom of the 9th inning, and the score is 24-1. Still hoping for a comeback, or a rally? Well, it's NEVER going to happen. Anybody with any sense has headed toward the exits.

There are no exits. This is the final game. If we lose freedom here, there is no place on earth that will be safe for freedom for very long.

If you saw them pulling into your driveway, would you run out the back door before its too late?
If you remove yourself from the game, then, you can't be played. They will occupy themselves by pursuing other dissident types. Until they have no one to consume but themselves.
If your enemy is superior, avoid.
Besides, this treachery was initiated long ago, and is being dutifully carried out today.
Perhaps later in history, they would look at those in our predicament and agree that we had no choice but to flee, re-evaluate the situation, and re-group.
What village in the somewhat free world wouldn't love to have reverent, free thinking, hard working, American families (NOT TROOPS)in their village?
Yes, I know that idea is repugnant to our nature today. But that same choice was left to our forefathers that settled this country. I bet, they would agree to leave. They obviously couldn't change their situation in their homelands before they risked it all and came here.
But, what do I know? I merely have the God given sense to survive and protect my family, by doing what ever it takes.

No, I would prefer to blow them out of my driveway. If the enemy is superior, I will attack, until they are not so superior. Maybe I'm becoming less of a soldier and more of a Marine in my old age. I will never be part of any whimpering passivist NO TROOPS village cringing in fear sucking their thumbs and hiding behind the daisies.
Once our forefathers grew some balls and decided to stand, the running was over. They stood against all odds, against the greatest and most organized military on earth, and they won. And they made a nation of laws, something, believe it or not, worth dieing for.
If you think the greatest and most organized military on earth in the possible final stages of this current global crisis - and that would be Comrade Putin - will stop with the destruction and conquest of America, you're a fool.
Go ahead and run, or be real quiet and hide. I will stand.
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.

Purpose of this grouping of links is to track and record distinctly anti-American political positions in political Parties and in the ideologically Marxist and anti-American news media.
The Anti-Americanism Pages
Virtually every position of the Marxocrat Party is in some way anti-American and/or anti-Christian. Note that anti-Christian, in and of itself, is anti-American. There is almost no part of the Marxocrat Party agenda that supports or strengthens and does not oppose the American Constitution, and the News Media is nothing more than a totally controlled wing or branch of the Marxocrat Party.
Government by Social Experiment or Constitutional Government: Choose. All government, whether ecclesial or temporal, may be seen to be morphing into Government by Social Experiment.
You Must Attack Anti-American Politics to Win American Political Wars. Any public direct attack on anti-American positions will always win, hands down. So why does no one ever do it?
America's current Anti-Constitution Constitutional Government. All three current branches knowingly violate the Constitution that created them, provided their rules and set their limits.
Do we have an Anti-American President? A Pro-Islam, Anti-Christian, Redistributionist, Utopian, Pro-Illegal Alien, quite consistently Anti-American, President Obama?
Political Parties: Redirecting allegiance away from the nation. Political Parties demand first obedience to the Party, not to the Constitution, slowly poisoning the nation.
Two Party Treason: Marxist Democrats Vs. Big Government Republicans. If both political Parties violate the Constitution in different ways, what we have is two Party treason.
Imagining a No Party America, with political Parties outlawed. When Political Parties oppose or do not defend the Constitution it is time for a No Party America.
New Way American Politics: Restoring and Advancing Cultural Americanism. A New Way of doing our Politics after anathematizing Political Parties, Marxism, Islam and Globalism.
Look at all the anti Constitutionalists - see how they run. See the anti Constitutionalists gather for war against those who violate lesser laws.
What to do with our anti-American Americans? Can America live with them? There are several variants of anti-American Americans who pose a serious threat from within.
How to incite class war in a classless society: First, Invent Faux Classes. Marxist Revolution needs a Class War, but Constitutional America prohibits nobility. Ergo, the Faux Classes of Marxism.
Faux Classes 2: Defining Social Classes by Income or Wealth. The Poor we will "NOT" always have with us? It just doesn't get any dumber than this. Faux Classes 2.
Treachery and Deceit: The Weapons of the Enemies Within. How Freedom of Speech opens the door to Anti-Free-Speech-Treachery in High Constitutional Political Office.
Twisting the Cultural Assimilation versus Cultural Segregation question. Natural cultural assimilation is for races and ethnicities; twisted cultural assimilation is for sin and evil.
Civilization versus Savagery: On Distinct Peoplehood. Civilization makes an identifiable civil People; savage, barbaric trends remove the distinction.
The Rise of Dominant Atheism, and with it, American and World Culture Rot. Culture Rot ensues once Human Culture predominantly worships only itself.
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.
"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
