THE BIG LIE VS REALITY
In November, 2001, just weeks after the September 11 attacks, we became so concerned over the level and sophistication of the propaganda coming out of Mass Media, we posted an article which has become a classic. If you have not read this expose', please take a moment to do so now, for you will be much better prepared to understand what we have to communicate with you in this article.
This classic article on propaganda is: "Breaking Out of the Mental Box: Learning To Think In The Opposite Direction To Find The Truth" -- NEWS1558.
Today, millions of Americans -- especially Christians -- are being targeted with a sophisticated Mass Media propaganda barrage designed to convince them to lobby hard with their Congressional representatives to vote in favor of President Bush's judicial nominees, many of whose appointments are stalled in Congress. This propaganda blitz is sending one major message:
To convince Christians that President Bush is trying hard to get his Conservative, Christian agenda through, but is currently being stymied by a recalcitrant, stubborn Congress.
Many times during his re-election campaign, the President was dogged by accusations that he never tried very hard to live up to his original election promises. Therefore, the President seems to have embarked on this propaganda lie to calm the waters of his Conservative - Christian supporters; after all, Bush cannot be faulted if he tried to get his agenda passed, but was stymied by those nasty Liberal Democrats headed by that despicable Senator Ted Kennedy! Right?
Let us review this current lie and then study the awful reality.
NEWS BRIEF: "Frist Seeks Christian Support to Stop Filibusters", The New York Times, April 25, 2005
"LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 24 - In a Sunday telecast organized by Christian conservative groups to denounce the Democrats as 'against people of faith' for blocking judicial nominees, Senator Bill Frist of Tennessee stepped up his threats to change Senate rules to circumvent those blockades .... In a short videotaped statement included in the telecast, which was called Justice Sunday and emanated from a packed Baptist mega-church here, Dr. Frist ... focused on accusations by Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, that Dr. Frist was a 'radical Republican' for participating in the telecast, which aimed to build conservative Christian support for his threat to eliminate the filibuster of presidential nominees - a parliamentary tactic that allows at least 41 senators to reject a nominee by indefinitely forestalling a vote. Democrats, who hold 44 Senate seats, have vowed to virtually shut down Senate business if Dr. Frist follows through.
"About 2,000 people packed into the Highview Baptist Church here for the telecast, and organizers said it was broadcast to several hundred churches by satellite, thousands of people over the Internet and 61 million households over Christian radio and television stations."
I find it ludicrous that a Baptist Church would allow a pro-abortion Senator to hold such an obviously partisan and political meeting. This church must be a very Liberal, un-Baptist Baptist Church! Until Jesse Jackson followed Martin Luther King, Jr., all Baptist churches held the belief that politics and religion must not mix -- political leaders just were not allowed to shamelessly parade their rank political agenda before the Christian faithful in God's house.
Now, all the old standards of discernment all gone, and churches of all stripes and persuasions are inviting political leaders into their pulpits. The end result is that church leadership has been captured by the extremely sophisticated propaganda operation which has been a hallmark of Republican presidents ever since that "Master Communicator", Ronald Reagan.
This church actually allowed pro-abortion Senator Frist to come into their pulpit to shamelessly push through the lie that, if President Bush could only be allowed his choices of judicial nominees, all "judicial activism" would be stopped in its tracks. We shall prove that this line of reasoning is sheer propaganda, with absolutely no basis in fact.
But, first, let us go back now to our featured article to see exactly the strategy Mr. Frist is employing to get this false message across.
"Marking a new stage in the confrontation, Dr. Frist singled out Judge Priscilla Owen, one of the blocked appeals court nominees, for praise in the telecast. The comments were a sign that Republicans have picked her to put forward for a vote to test the will of Democrats ... In the same telecast, Dr. Frist repudiated the comments of some in his party, including the House majority leader, Tom DeLay, about punishing judges whose rulings they consider out of line. 'When we think judicial decisions are outside mainstream American values, we will say so', he said. 'But we must also be clear that the balance of power among all three branches requires respect - not retaliation. I won't go along with that'." (Ibid.)
Thus, you can see that this argument runs consistently: do not vote against one of President Bush's judicial nominees because of a "litmus test" of any sort, but especially on the issues of abortion and Christian morality. If Bush could just get his choices of judges approved, then all this "judicial activism" could be stopped in its tracks. The lineup of antagonists in this propaganda message is clear:
* Liberal Democrats -- who love abortion and whose appointed judges have been issuing "activist" decisions for many decades now that have wracked this country, turning its values upside down and inside out. In particular, Christians have been so very upset about the way judges refused to intervene to save Terri Schiavo's life; further, Christian leaders have been challenging the "judicial activism" of judges from the time of court orders to integrate school systems, to Roe vs Wade, and to the Supreme Court decision in June, 2003, to legalize Sodomy.
* President Bush's Republicans -- who want conservative judges who are promised not to be "activist judges". Republicans are held up as the saviors of Conservative and/or Christian values. If we could only get some Republican judges sitting on the benches, we could get America back to loving God and the Bible.
This is the current propaganda lie.
Other Christian leaders voiced support for this line of thought.
"Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council and an organizer of the telecast, declared at the outset, 'We are not saying that people who disagree with us are not people of faith'. Democrats, he argued, were forcing members of the judiciary to choose between public service and their conservative Christian views by denying them judgeships because of their stance on abortion or other social issues." (Ibid.)
"Dr. James Dobson, founder of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, whose political sister group was a sponsor of the event, defended Mr. DeLay and his attacks on the judiciary, calling the Supreme Court 'unaccountable', 'out of control', and a despotic oligarchy'." (Ibid.)
The message from Senator Frist's broadcast from Highview Baptist Church is clear: Republican judges nominated by President Bush need to now be approved by a Congress which currently has enough nasty Democrats to block the nominations. Republican judges of the Reagan/Bush/Bush lineage would return America back to her base Christian values.
This is a huge lie -- and we shall now prove it.
Kelley McGinley of "Retaking America" has her facts straight.
NEWS BRIEF: "Republicans Responsible For Schiavo's Sacrifice", Retaking America, March 26, 2005
"Republicans are trying to gain political pro-life mileage from the Terri Schiavo circus, when in fact they are the true culprits behind her starvation and dehydration ... Florida circuit court Judge Greer, who presided over the Schiavo case, is a Republican ... When the Florida legislature voted to save Terri, nine senate Republicans voted NO ... President George W. Bush and Republican congressmen scurried back to Washington to save Terri last week and did nothing but put her fate into the hands of some of the same Republicans who voted to remove Alabama's 10 Commandments."
Cutting Edge revealed that this law President Bush and his Republican Congressional leadership passed regarding Terri Schiavo was worthless, as it just allowed the Schiavo advocates to petition Federal Courts, rather than simply depending upon Florida state courts; therefore, when the Federal Courts (including the U.S. Supreme Court) issued their ruling to not intervene, their pro-euthanasia decision made Adult Euthanasia the law of the land! This decision had much the same impact as the Supreme Court decision in Roe vs Wade.
Now, Kelley noted another aspect: the same judges who voted to remove Judge Moore and the Ten Commandment monument in Alabama were the ones into whose hands Terri Schiavo's life was cast -- and Terri is dead because of that decision!
Let us return to Kelley:
"Republicans control the 11th Circuit court, with GOP Presidents appointing 7 of the 12 judges. Six of those Republican appointees voted to kill Terri Schiavo. One of those six was a Reagan appointee and five were appointed by Bush or his father. As hard as it is to believe, Clinton's appointees voted to save Terri's life." (Ibid.)
Please stop a moment to contemplate what we have just heard. Republican judges voted to condemn Terri Schiavo to death, while the judges appointed by President Clinton voted to save her life! How can this be? President Clinton was supposed to be one of those wide-eyed Liberals who was against everything America stood for, while Presidents Reagan, Bush, Sr., and the current Bush were supposed to be Christians, sharing the Biblical values which made America great. Yet, here we see that the "Liberal" Clinton judges voted to sustain Terri's life, while the "Conservative" judges appointed by "Christian" presidents voted to murder Terri!
As we stated earlier, a Republican president appointed 7 of the 12 judges of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals! Can you understand now why I warned that just because the Schiavo matter was kicked up to the Federal level from the Florida level, did not mean Terri was going to get a favorable ruling. Unfortunately, my warning was all too accurate and Terri died -- because the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals refused to overrule the Florida court rulings, and the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, thereby sustaining the 11th Circuit decision!
But, there are more factors we need to understand!
* Texas Governor George W. Bush signed into law an "End-of-Life Act" on September 1, 1999, which provided for involuntary euthanasia! As this article explaining the new law demonstrates, this Texas law puts forth most of the same arguments we heard 'ad nauseam' about Terri. How could a George W. Bush who signed such a law while he was Texas Governor, now suddenly become so very concerned about the plight of Terri Schiavo?
NOTE: He really did sign this law; it was not passed over a veto! You can read all about it in the following sources:
* "Medical Advance Directives Act" (Part 1) -- by Paul Premack, Certified Elder Law Attorney
* "Response to Accusation from the White House about Rep. Wasserman Schultz's Terri Schiavo Floor Statement"
As Governor of Texas, George W. Bush had already made his pro-euthanasia position known! Yet, as President, Mr. Bush rushed back to the White House, signing the bill that pro-abortionist Senator Frist had been influential in getting passed, that supposedly gave the Schiavo advocates new hope. Yet, just hours later, the 11th Circuit Court dashed those hopes, and the Supreme Court dashed them still further days later. Terri Schiavo died, while the pro-euthanasia people exulted because the case had been decided at a Federal level. Now, Euthanasia can go forward, gaining strength as one case after another will come to the forefront; with each succeeding death, Adult Euthanasia will become as entrenched in our society as was Roe vs Wade.
Kelley McGinley continues.
"Not only did Republicans set a legal precedent to kill off Americans, they created this fake crisis in order to continue to erode our Constitutional Republic. This is a state's rights issue and involvement of the federal government sets up a very dangerous slippery slope that would make Hitler proud ... This fake crisis will also cause an uproar for Bush’s judicial nominees. As if there is a difference between a Democrat or a Republican in a black robe. The Republicans will continue to let you think that nothing can be done to stop these 'grim reapers in black robes'. They have abdicated their job of impeaching and reigning in judges who disregard the Constitution.
"Republican judges have had a significant part in outlawing God, killing the unborn, removing the 10 Commandments, and now government forced euthanasia. If Christians continue to believe that Republicans will save the day they are living in lala land. Here in Alabama it was 7 Republicans that voted to remove the 10 Commandments and Judge Roy Moore. It was 2 Republican judges and one Democrat on the 11th circuit court who ruled to remove our 10 Commandments. It was a Republican governor and Attorney General who conspired with the 7 Republicans on the Alabama Supreme court to get rid of our 10 Commandments and Judge Roy Moore. And a Republican President that would not say a word. Our two Republican senators were also mute. In Florida the Republicans are continuing this same maneuver."
Kelley then quotes Dan Charles, National Chairman of the America First Party. Listen carefully, for his quote is exactly right.
"The good people of this nation who care about life need to understand the half-hearted pro-life gestures by the GOP for what they are: snow jobs to keep the pro-life constituency in line. When it comes to stopping the killing, the GOP can't get the real job done because the GOP is not pro-life."
He is exactly correct: "the GOP is not pro-life."
REPUBLICAN JUDICIAL MAJORITY VOTED TO LEGALIZE SODOMY
American Christians were shocked and dismayed when the U.S. Supreme Court voted in a Texas case to legalize Sodomy! Cutting Edge posted NEWS1830, entitled "Has America Crossed That Final Judgment Line With God After Supreme Court Legalized 'Private Acts' of Homosexuality?"
Let us quote some of the pertinent information.
"NEWS BRIEF: "Supreme Court Overturns Texas Gay Sex Ban", Fox News, June 26, 2003.
"WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court rejected Texas' gay sex ban Thursday, ruling that a state law that punished homosexual couples for engaging in sex acts that are legal for heterosexuals was an unconstitutional violation of privacy. The justices struck down a Texas Supreme Court ruling that banned 'deviate sexual intercourse with another individual of the same sex' ... 'The law "demeans the lives of homosexual persons,' Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the 6-3 majority, adding that the men 'are entitled to respect for their private lives. The state cannot demean their existence or control their destiny by making their private sexual conduct a crime,' Kennedy wrote. Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented. 'The court has largely signed on to the so-called homosexual agenda', Scalia wrote for the three."
On 6/26/2003, the Supreme Court legalized homosexual acts in Texas -- and by the nature of their high national office -- and throughout the rest of the nation as well. For years, Christian Fundamentalists have been mightily warning that America is in severe danger of God's physical judgment because of our multiple sins in his eyes. Now, on this date, six Justices voted to legalize acts of sodomy "done in private"! Instantly, Sodomy became the Law of the Land.
However, this decision was written so as to allow some very disgusting side issues to come to the forefront, about which Justice Scalia warned strenuously.
Because the issue was based upon privacy in the home of the people involved, numerous other despicable acts might now be declared legal. Listen to this sobering article.
NEWS BRIEF: "Ruling on Gay Sex Ban May Have Far Reach", by Gina Holland, Associated Press, Washington Post, June 27, 2003.
"WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court's ruling striking down bans on gay sex also strengthens the constitutional underpinnings for legal abortion and other socially divisive issues ... The court said Thursday that what gay men and women do in the privacy of their bedrooms is their business and not the government's, a historic civil rights ruling that will likely be used to challenge other bans involving private conduct. The decision in many respects deals with the same issues as the court's 30-year-old Roe v. Wade ruling that provided for legal abortions. Emory University law professor David Garrow said the ruling 'strengthens and enshrines' the court's thinking in the abortion case."
Can you believe this? The Supreme Court ruled in such a way that, not only did they legalize sodomy, but they further enhanced abortion rights! But, that is not all, as we learn going back to our article.
"Garrow said it also weakens the reasoning used by the Supreme Court in ruling in 1997 that terminally ill people do not have a constitutional right to doctor-assisted suicide ... Scalia said the ruling could open the way to laws allowing gay marriage ... The ruling also threatens laws banning bestiality, bigamy and incest, he wrote."
Now, from Justice Scalia himself, we see that this ruling might weaken arguments against some pretty awful societal sins:
* Gay marriage -- Now legal in Canada; get ready for mighty push to legalize here
* Euthanasia -- doctor-assisted suicide
We were warned by Justice Scalia way back in June, 2003, that this decision would open the door to Adult Euthanasia! Is it any wonder that Terri Schiavo was murdered by Florida state officials nearly two years later? This sodomy decision was major, major, major, and the full effects are still rippling through our society.
Now, let us examine the six Justices who voted for this historic decision. Guess what, the majority of them were appointed by Republican Presidents!
The Justices appointed by Republican Presidents to the U.S. Supreme Court at this time were:
Stevens (Ford) - Voted to legalize Sodomy
O'Connor (Reagan) -- Voted to legalize Sodomy
Kennedy (Reagan) -- Voted to legalize Sodomy
Souter (Bush, Sr.) -- Voted to legalize Sodomy
Thomas ( Bush, Sr.)
Justices Stevens, O'Connor, Kennedy, and Souter voted to legalize Sodomy on June 26, 2003! These four Republican judges joined two Democrat judges to legalize Sodomy throughout the land!
Can you begin to see the outright fallacy in the premise that, if President Bush could only get his choices for judicial nominees approved, he could stop the "judicial activism" in its tracks? History tells us that it is Republican-appointed judges who have been the worst in carrying out "judicial activism"! The Mass Media has carried out the lie for so many decades now that it has only been Liberal Democrat judges who have been guilty of "judicial activism". While many Democrat-appointed judges have, indeed, been guilty of this practice, Republican-appointed judges have wielded the greatest wrecking ball against our nation's spiritual and moral foundation.
U.S. SUPREME COURT DECISION OF ROE VS WADE
No single decision has more devastated America than Roe vs Wade. Almost 50 million babies have been murdered in the womb since that horrific decision. Many people have held up this decision as the ultimate in "Judicial Activism". Yet, guess what? Most of the judges voting for Roe vs Wade were appointed by Republican presidents!
Here is the list of the Justices who voted to pass Roe vs Wade.
(1) Chief Justice Warren Burger- Nixon-1969
(2) William Brennan- Dwight Eisenhower-1956
(3) Potter Stewart- Eisenhower-1958
(4) Harry Blackmun- Nixon-1970
(5) Lewis Powell- Nixon-1972
(6) William Douglas- FDR-1939
(7) Thurgood Marshall- Lyndon Johnson-1967
The only Judges who dissented were William Rehnquist appointed by Reagan, and Byron White appointed by John F. Kennedy. The decision was a 7-2 majority in favor of it. The irony of it was the court HAD a majority of Republican appointed judges. Five Republican justices joined two Democrat Justices to legalize Abortion on Demand!
The facts are in and they are mightily sobering. The worst instances in recent, modern history have been carried out by judges appointed by Republican politicians. Therefore, it is the highest form of deceit to shout to the American electorate that President Bush can end "judicial activism" if only he could get his judicial nominees passed by the Senate.
Christians are the most duped people on earth these days. Beginning in the late 1970's with Moral Majority, Fundamental Christians have identified with Republicans generally and Republican presidents specifically. What do we have to show for 25 years of political activism?
Has Abortion on Demand been rolled back? No
Have our moral foundations been improved? No
Have we stopped the incredible march toward the global New World Order? No
Have we stopped the killing of the elderly, the devalued, the terminally ill? No
Have we successfully reduced the size of governments? No
Have we successfully reduced the size of deficits? No
Have we successfully stopped Federal encroachment against our Constitution? Most assuredly NO!
In fact, this President Bush has been the one to demand -- and get -- the gravest of dictatorial laws which strip us of our Constitution protections, all under the guise of "fighting terror". Since Bush has been so deceptive in demanding dictatorial, we cannot now trust him to nominate judges who will truly vote to end "Judicial Activism".
As usual, we have been duped, and as usual, the truth of the matter lies 100% in the opposite direction from the public rhetoric (NEWS1558).
When are we going to learn that there is not one iota of difference between Republican and Democrat politicians? Old Governor George Wallace was absolutely correct when he snorted, "There's not a dime's worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats".
We have proven in past articles that the two-party system in this country is simply a national exercise of the "Dialectic Struggle Principle". The "Thesis" Party battles the "Anti-Thesis" Party in order to move the world to the goal of "Synthesis" -- the New World Order. (Read NEWS1599 and NEWS1962)
The sad fact is that American Conservatives and/or Christians will never wake up to understand the truth of President Bush and the Republican Party. Their minds have been "propagandized" so much that they do not want to change; it is far easier and more comfortable to continue believing the standard lie.
Adolf Hitler was right:
"Truth is not what is; truth is what people think it is." (Adolf Hitler)
"What luck for rulers that people do not think." (Adolf Hitler)
"Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it" (Adolf Hitler)
The Bible is also incredibly accurate when it warns about unprecedented deception at the End of the Age:
"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you." (Matt 24:4)
"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." (Matt 24:11) "False Prophets" are religious deceivers
"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets ... insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect"
(Matt 24:24) -- The word, "Christ" refers to the "office of the Jewish Messiah" and it is as much political as religious (Read full details in NEWS1826)
"But wicked men and imposters will go
on from bad to worse, deceiving and leading astray others and being deceived
and led astray themselves." (2 Timothy 3:13; Parallel
Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Therefore, Christians should be expecting unparalleled political AND religious deception as the world hurtles toward the End of the Age. Christian leaders should have been so forewarned in the late 1970's that they would have refused to join with the Republican Party from the time of Moral Majority onward to today. But, the leaders who led Christians into the political fracas through Moral Majority to the leaders of today who are encouraging Christians to support political candidates are "Wolves in Sheep's Clothing" who care nothing whatsoever of genuine Christianity.
Whenever you hear a pastor or other Christian leader praising a political leader and whenever you hear him say that Christians should get involved in the political process, you should be very suspicious, for two reasons:
1) The Bible says that, once Israel returns to her land as a nation, all prophecies will come true. (Matthew 24:32-33) No amount of political activity by Christians on any issue will make any difference whatsoever. Saving souls should be our most important priority. Christians have been corrupted and very deceived by joining political activities.
2) Recent history has shown that Christians are not as discerning as non-Christians (Luke 16:8b), and have been duped. The greatest example is the protest against Abortion on Demand. When Protestant Christians joined Roman Catholics on the picket lines protesting abortion, too many of them began to feel an affinity for their "Roman Catholic brothers and sisters"; thus, their participation with Catholics on the abortion picket lines is leading to the Ecumenical religion foretold at the End of the Age. The Roman Catholic Pope -- whomever he is at the time -- has been chosen to be the False Prophet once the Masonic Christ appears (NEWS1052). Therefore, it is serious matter to join with Catholics on any matter!
Truly, current events demonstrate that the End of the Age draws nigh! Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
