The Progressives Are Destroying America

Geneva Bible
Image via Wikipedia

When the Pilgrims stepped off the Mayflower, they brought the Bible with them. The reason they came here and endured such great hardship was this: They wanted their children to live in a society that was governed by Biblical principles. And their descendents, the Founding Fathers, fulfilled that dream.  They invented a new form of government. And they gave us a nation where we are  free to practice our religion and to govern ourselves.

American exceptionalism is the result of God’s blessing. And the Liberty that we enjoy today is a by-product of Christianity.

Throughout history, our leaders warned us that “Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.” (Wm Penn) And “It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.”(Patrick Henry) “You can’t enslave a Bible-reading people.” (Horace Greeley) And the Bible was America’s textbook for the first three hundred and fifty years of our existence.

Noah Webster was the greatest American educator who ever lived. Look at what he wrote in his public school textbook, “History of the United States” in 1832: “The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and his apostles, which enjoins humility, piety, and benevolence; which acknowledges in every person a brother, or a sister, and a citizen with equal rights. This is genuine Christianity, and to this we owe our free Constitutions of Government.”

He was writing to school children. He gave them the following advice, and his words turned out to be prophetic:

“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty.

If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for the selfish or local purposes; Corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded.

If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”

The Progressives measure our “progress” by how far we’ve departed from the teachings of the Bible. Look how how far we have progressed, in their eyes, in the past fifty years! The Ten Commandments are banned in public buildings. And it’s illegal to read the Bible in the public schools.

We were naive enough to let the Progressives remove the Bible from our culture. They knew they had to take our Bibles away before they could enslave us. They tell us there’s no such thing as truth, or liberty that comes from God. They want their government to be our god, and they want to make slaves of us all.

Why are they so afraid of the Bible? What’s in there that scares them so muchl?  It is the truth. And the truth is their enemy. They can’t stand it, and they can’t stand up to it. To them, truth is like Kryptonite to Superman.

God is a Revealer of Secrets

George Washington Carver

Image via Wikipedia

George Washington Carver was a creative genius.  He invented crop rotation, and discovered over 300 new uses for peanuts. He was a friend of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and three American Presidents. He saved the economy of the South from the devastation that followed the Civil War; and this was in spite of the fact that his father and mother were slaves. How was he able to accomplish all of these things? This is his answer to that question:

“There is literally nothing that I ever wanted to do, that I asked the blessed Creator to help me to do, that I have not been able to accomplish. It’s all very simple, if one knows how to talk with the Creator. It is simply seeking the Lord and finding Him… all my life I have risen regularly at four o’clock and have gone into the woods and talked with God.

There he gives me my orders for the day…when people are still asleep I hear God best and learn my plan…after my morning’s talk with God I go into my laboratory and begin to carry out His wishes for the day.”

Mr. Carver’s greatest personal discovery was the Lord Jesus Christ. He believed the Bible and did exactly what it says. And it worked for him just like Jesus said it would: “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:26)

The Holy Spirit showed him how to do those things, and he will help you in your work. Get to know him and stay in fellowship with him. There is no problem that he cannot solve. Ask God to teach you the things that you need to know, and listen for his “still small voice,” (the voice of your conscience) and do whatever God tells you to do.

Mr. Carver’s quote was taken from The Man Who Talks With the Flowers, by Glenn Park.

Dedicated to Satan

The National Education Association once listed Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, as recommended reading, especially for those who want to “make a difference.” The reviewer goes on and on about what a great man Alinsky was.

Did Alinsky make a difference? Sure he did, but it was a negative and destructive one. He made a huge contribution to the destruction of the United States of America through this book. Alinsky’s followers have used his principles to advance their dream of an Atheist and Marxist America.

If you have a copy of it, take a look at the dedication page. Or, just Google it like I did.  You will see that Alinsky actually dedicated his book to the Devil:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins—or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom—Lucifer.” –Saul Alinsky

When I first saw this, I was horrified. But at least, he came right on out with it. This a handbook for people who hate God, hate Christianity, and hate America.

It’s too bad that Saul Alinsky never read the Bible or believed it. He would have known about Lucifer’s ultimate fate, along with everyone who is deceived by him and worships him. They’re all going to be cast into the Lake of Fire, which is the second death.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:10

Schoolteachers can’t have a copy of the Bible on their desk, or even read it on their lunch break. But this anti-Christian and anti-American book is recommended reading for teachers! And it’s dedicated to the devil! They can’t teach the Ten Commandments, because they are from the Bible. But the NEA wants their teachers to read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

Okay, so now I get it. Secularism, Marxism, Atheism, that is the official state religion. It really doesn’t have a name. It’s a coalition of everything that opposes Christianity, and America. And Rules for Radicals is their Bible. But what are they doing?

These are not nice people. They’re wicked evil men who want to enslave you and your children. They’re completely serious about the “fundamental transformation of America.” They want to transform America into a Socialist state.

They know that Capitalism produces prosperity and Socialism produces poverty. They want all of us to live in poverty.

That’s because poverty-stricken people are easy to manipulate. You can buy them for a piece of bread. That’s why the Secular Progressives, aka Marxists, Socialists, and Liberals want to do away with Capitalism.

They want to confiscate everything we’ve got. And make slaves of us all.

Godly Minds, Bold Hearts: Behind the American Defense Against Tyranny

Godly Minds, Bold Hearts

Godly Minds, Bold Hearts

Godly Minds, Bold Hearts: Behind the American Defense Against Tyranny, by Kara L. Kramer (ISBN: 9780615306377)

Godly Minds, Bold Hearts is a treasure. It contains a wealth of information about the founding of America. It explains how our American form of government was born. The Founding Fathers sacrificed their lives and property so that we could be free from tyranny.

Godly Minds, Bold Hearts is loaded with excellent quotes from our greatest heroes. Listen to the immortal words of these American Patriots:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness . . . The Declaration of Independence

The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time. . . . Thomas Jefferson

Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature. Benjamin Franklin

The people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants. William Penn

It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. Patrick Henry

Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them. Jedediah Morse

The following quotes show us that Americans today are fighting in the same war as the Founding Fathers—as the Tyrants of the world try to stamp out Liberty, Godliness, and Christianity. These words are just as relevant today as when they were first spoken.

The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite. Thomas Jefferson

And yet the same revolutionary belief for which our forbears fought is still at issue around the globe, the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.  John F. Kennedy

The fact that the war against Liberty is still going on proves that we haven’t lost it. There’s hope for America yet. Listen to these inspiring words from Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech:

The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations . . . Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.

Every school child in America needs to hear this speech. And this is one example of what you will find in Godly Minds, Bold Hearts. It’s an excellent textbook on American History. We’ve made it a permanent part of our Homeschool library.

I absolutely love this book. It inspires me, and reminds me of what it means to be an American. I recommend it to everyone who loves America. Thank you, Kara Kramer, for teaching us the truth about the American Revolution.

The War on Poverty is a Colossal Failure

Photo portrait of President Lyndon B. Johnson ...

The War on Poverty initiated by President Johnson is a colossal failure.

So far, we have transferred sixteen trillion dollars from the Have’s to the Have-Not’s. And now we have more poor people than ever.

This experiment in Socialism was based on a lack of understanding of basic human nature.
It was implemented by Progressive politicians who reject Christianity, and the Christian work-ethic that makes America work.
In 1916, William Boetcker, a Presbyterian minister, published a pamphlet called “The Ten Can-Nots.” These words of wisdom are usually attributed to Abraham Lincoln; but Honest Abe didn’t write them, Reverend Boetcker did.

Read Reverend Boetcker’s Ten Can-Nots for yourself, and see if you agree with them.

1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

3. You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.

4. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

5. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

6. You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.

7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

8. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.

9. You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence.

10. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

The Speech that Ignited the American Revolution

Patrick HenryImage via Wikipedia
I went to the first Tax Day Tea Party in 2009, with my daughter Jennifer and her daughters Katie, 8, Beverly,10, and Haley ,12. This was a homeschool project for them.
We felt like we were participating in American History, instead of just reading about it. We were excited to be a part of the millions of Americans across America who want to preserve our God-given rights.
We saw several men carrying “Don’t Tread on Me” flags. Others were wearing three-cornered hats. It reminded me of the song “Yankee Doodle.” “And there we saw the men and boys as thick as hasty pudding,” I quoted. Then, I had to explain to the kids that this is a song about the gathering of troops under General George Washington.
We heard several local leaders and were inspired by what they said. It was a refreshing experience to hear good things about America, and to hear them spoken in the open air.
On the way home, we were talked about what we had heard. I remembered Patrick Henry‘s “Give me liberty or give me deathspeech. I knew that it was one of the greatest speeches ever given. Like most other people in America, I had no idea what he said other than its one most famous line.
When we got home, we read the speech and were astonished by it. It was not a political speech, it was a powerful sermon. Patrick Henry is assuring the others that God will help them to win the Revolutionary War.
And what he said was true. God did help them and he also delivered us  from tyranny.
Patricks Henry’s signature speech is such a treasure that I have to share it with you.
Here are the two final paragraphs:
Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.

Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battle alone. There is an just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. … The war is inevitable–and let it come. I repeat it sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentleman may cry, Peace, peace–but there is no peace. … Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

What makes this speech so great? It’s the passion that Henry conveys to us in expressing his faith in God. It’s so strong that it comes through even on the printed page.
Patrick Henry’s voice still rings true and still speaks to the true American patriot. He knew that God always intervenes on behalf of his people. And when God is helping us, we cannot lose.
We are facing some problems today with our government, but they are nothing compared to what the Founding Fathers went through. The same God who gave them victory in the American Revolution is available to help us today.
But where do we find the godly men and women of today? Are you one of them?
Are you willing to do something to help preserve our liberty and freedom? Are you willing to humble yourself before God, and pray, and seek his face, and turn from your wicked ways?
God has promised us that if we, his people, who are called by his name, will do these things, he will hear us and he will heal our land, and every Christian in America ought to do the things that he told us to do.

English: Norman Thomas (1884-1968), American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Norman M. Thomas (1884-1968) was a prominent American Socialist and Pacifist. He ran for President of the United States six times on  the Socialist Party ticket.

He was also instrumental in founding the American Civil Liberties Union.

Mr. Thomas realized that the freedom-loving American people would never vote for Socialism. So, he created a clever deception to transform America into a Socialist state.

He originated the American form of Liberalism. I am summarizing his idea and paraphrasing it like this, “Comrades, As long as we call ourselves Socialists, nobody is going to vote for us. We’ll ourselves Liberals, but we’ll always be true to the principles of Socialism.”

This is part of a speech that he  made while running for President in 1944:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until America will one day be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.”

Later on, he made the following statement:

“I no longer need to run as a Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

George Washington Believed in The God of The Bible

English: George Washington presiding over the ...

English: George Washington presiding over the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention Česky: George Washington předsedající Filadelskému ústavnímu konventu (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Every schoolchild in America used to know about the impeccable character and bravery of George Washington. He actually led his men into battle from the front.
One of the Indian Chiefs who fought against George Washington in the French and Indian War wanted to meet the man he called “the bulletproof general.” He said that he had personally shot at Washington several times, but the bullets never touched him. In one battle alone, he had three horses shot from under him.
George Washington was the Father of our Country; and he said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” He reminded the delegates at the Constitutional Convention that without Divine Intervention, we would not have won our independence in the Revolutionary War.
Here are some excerpts from the speech that General Washington gave his troops at the beginning of the War:

“The time is now near at hand, which must probably determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them.

“The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of a brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer, or to die. . . .

“Let us, then rely on the goodness of our cause, and the aid of the Supreme Being, in whose hands victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble actions. . . .

“Liberty, property, life, and honor are all at stake; upon your courage and conduct rest the hopes of our bleeding and insulted country. Our wives, children, and parents expect safety from us alone, and they have every reason to believe that Heaven will crown with success so just a cause. . . .

Benjamin Franklin’s Call for Prayer

Portrait of Benjamin FranklinImage via Wikiped

Benjamin Franklin was 81 years old at the time of the Constitutional Convention. He knew that God helped us to defeat the most powerful military force in the world, Great Britain, and win our independence from them.

The delegates to the Constitutional Convention were unable to agree on anything at first. Then, Franklin reminded them that they were all Christians; and they adopted his motion to begin each session by praying together. With God’s help, they created the United States Constitution. They invented a new form of government that had never existed before. Nobody has ever devised a government that is better than ours.  The world has never seen a richer, more powerful, caring and compassionate nation that The United States of America. We have more freedom here than anywhere else on earth.

This is part of what Benjamin Franklin’s speech to the men who founded the United States of America.

“How has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine Protection.

Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. . . . And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need his assistance.

I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth–that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?

We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that ‘except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.’ I firmly believe this; . . . “

Benjamin Franklin was well known for his wisdom. He knew for a fact that God helped us to win the Revolutionary war. There is no doubt that he believed in God; and that he was well-acquainted with the Bible. Without God and Benjamin Franklin, the United States of America would not exist.

The Fundamental Transformation of America

At the end of World War One in 1919, American soldiers obtained a copy of the International Communists’ plans for the United States.

American Socialists and Communists have done an excellent job of following that blueprint for America.  In the past ninety-three years, they have reached nearly all of these goals. This must be what President Obama was talking about when he talked about “The Fundamental Transformation of America.”

A. Corrupt the young; get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.

B. Get control of all means of publicity , thereby:

1. Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays and other trivialities.

2. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.

3. Destroy the people’s faith in their natural leaders by holding them up to contempt, ridicule and disgrace.

4. Always preach true democracy, but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.

5. By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.

6. By specious argument, cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues – honesty, sobriety, self-restraint, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.

C. Cause the registration of ALL firearms on some pretext with a view to confiscate them and leave the population helpless.

President Barack Obama and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner achieved Communist goal number 5 (above) when the United States of America’s credit rating was downgraded for the first time in history.

President John Adams said, “There are two ways to enslave a nation. One is by the sword, the other is  by debt.” During his first term in office, President Obama borrowed and spent more money than all of the other Presidents combined.

I copied this list of Communist goals from a post by Bruce Collins at http://hearkenthewatchmen.com/article.asp?id=8
