Somewhere deep down, we have to know that the mess in America is our fault.
You and me.
I know, I know…it’s sooooo much more fun to blame Them for all of it – the Democrats, the liberals, the progressives, the Muslims, the gay activists…
And yeah, I’m also well aware that there are a whole lotta “good” excuses that we have handy and ready to roll at the drop of a hat…
It’s not our fault. After all, we’ve been raised and live in an age of propaganda and the mass marketing of deception the likes of which has never before been experienced. This is just the way the world is…
True enough, as far as it goes, anyway.
Our fate was sealed a loooong time ago! We’ve come along relatively late in the game, especially those of us under 50. The “table was set” for socialism with fake money, Social Security, public “education” and the Welfare State loooong before we hit the scene.
Fair enough and, again, true as far as it goes…or is allowed to go by its conveniently selective user.
These sorts of rationalizations are reasonable enough at some level, but clinging to them in lieu of personal action will never lead to a happy ending…or even a mediocre one.
The State has much darker destinations in mind, and unless we each do everything that we’ve been equipped to do right here and right now, it is going to take us there…very soon…
While it is true that we have been profoundly deceived, we must admit that we are still responsible for what we have done in response…and that much of our deception has come by way of willful, “ignorance is bliss” style self-deception.
We are responsible.
“They” are responsible as well, but we are responsible for how we seek, handle, and apply truths discovered as light is given us to see – even, and especially, where the truth of our own manipulation and self-deception is concerned.

Once we are graced by God with the courage to embrace reality and look at very uncomfortable, challenging truths about even our own cherished beliefs, traditions, and understandings, then we will have taken a first step to true and lasting victory here and now in post-Christian America. Once we strive to humble ourselves and honestly, openly “test all things” (1 Thess. 5:21), we will finally be empowered to make the sorts of lasting, positive changes that radically impact civilization and culture, one person and one act of obedience to God at a time.
It is in this spirit that I aim to encourage and exhort fellow Christians living here and now with me in 2014 America, though I also hope and pray that believers in other times and places might find value in the words here whenever it is that they might come upon them.
For the Brothers and Sisters assigned with me now to Battlefield America, we must grab hold of the truth that if this insane, rapidly deteriorating Orwellian American nightmare is going to be salvaged, we are going to have to personally do very radical things in order to make that happen.
Yet even though we already know this at some level, most of us are still clinging to comfortable lies…lies that are about to finally and fully do in whatever good is left of “the American experiment”.
One popular bit of propaganda that I would like to consider here is the doctrine of Perpetual War as employed by our ruling elite and marketed as a “necessary evil” for many generations now.
Which brings us neatly to last week’s Washington Post op-ed piece by Rick Perry, in which the Republican Governor of Texas faithfully regurgitated the long-running, tried and true Statist line on the “necessary evil” of Perpetual War for America.
I’m guessing that Governor Perry wouldn’t quite summarize it that way, but it is what it is.
WAR NEVER DIES
“War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength.” ~ George Orwell, 1984
Where “Love Never Dies” was the promo tag line for 1992’s big screen production of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, “War Never Dies” fits perfectly as a summarizing promo tag for Perry’s re-re-re-hash of the Neo-Conservative foreign policy philosophy (a philosophy that is adopted in practice by both globalist owned and operated political Democrat/Republican front parties).
Unlike retreaded horror flicks showing on obscure channels at 2 a.m., this ongoing globalist production has actual casualties.
Millions of ’em.
And it wants millions more.
If it gets those millions more, it will then demand tens of millions after that.
On and on it will go…as it always has and always will…until we stop it.
This beast will never stop itself…it cannot…the interests of the Corpo-Fascist State require that war…never…ends.
Corporate interests and government power must be perpetually expanded. The drive to global governance must be relentlessly pursued.
This is globalism in practice. This is the systematic, anti-Christian worldview under which America and Americans have been subjugated for well over 100 years. This is the system under which America is presently being escorted into its endgame. This is the battlefield onto which we have been purposefully placed by our King.
Now back to Republican Rick…
Rick wants very much to be President.
And, as noted earlier, Rick is the Governor of Texas.
For those of you who just emerged from an at-least-month-long coma, there is at present an open invasion of America going on all along the Texas border. This invasion is aimed at bringing in gajillions of illegal immigrants for three purposes:
1. The provision of ever-cheaper labor for corporations and businesses. Not only will these millions of new illegal immigrants work for next to nothing, but their impact on the larger work force pool will continue the purposeful economic suppression of all wage-earners and wage-seekers who operate in the lower levels of the economy. Republicans, conservatives, large business owners and stock holders tend to love this for rather obvious reasons.
2. The provision of millions of new pro-State voters. The vast majority of these new illegal immigrants will be transitioned into Welfare State dependency. They will then tend to vote out of loyalty to the State and for the perpetual expansion of entitlement programs. Democrats and leftist progressives love this for rather obvious reasons.
3. The provision of a major wedge for use in the Cloward-Piven fueled implosion of what is left of “the American Experiment”. As this process purposefully unfolds, the Welfare/Warfare State that we know now will make way for the full blown tyranny of globalism in what was once the United States of America. Those atop the Republican and Democrat wings of the political puppet show in America all love this, again, for rather obvious reasons.
Economic collapse, perpetual war, large-scale invasion from the South, and the emergence of an Orwellian Corpo-Fascist Super-Surveillance State right here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA…
…none of this is “just happening”.
This is not just a series of bizarre coincidences that happen to be coming together in a particularly frightening and destructive manner.
It is not all a result of massive incompetence perpetuated by “oops, I wrecked the country!” political buffoons.
It is not just one big, giant “misunderstanding”.
It is purposeful.
It is planned.
It is running along right on schedule and the last few steps to endgame are right around the proverbial corner.
Sure, there are political buffoons involved here. There’s a whole lotta incompetence, idiocy, and rank stupidity on display, too.
But the powers that be at the very top of this operation are getting exactly what they want, pretty much how and when they want it.
So…as we read or watch or hear a guy like Republican Rick talk about things like the need for us to be ever-ready to feed the blood of our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren into the soil of Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and [insert nation here; they all seem to end up on the list eventually], we might want to take a moment to notice that this wannabe President and Neo-Con “leader” is, at present, the Governor of a State that is actively being overrun.
Texas is being invaded.
And everybody knows it…including, presumably, even Texas Governor Rick Perry.
So then, why is this happening?
Why is the Governor of a State that is actively under large-scale, purposefully culture-transforming invasion not doing whatever it takes to actively seal and defend the Texas border?
Why is he not honoring that most basic obligation of his office while simultaneously advocating that we be ready to send our children to bleed and die everywhere but here in defense of our border?
And here the answer is painfully simple.
Not only that, but it’s been crystal clear as well…for a loooooooong time now.
Rick Perry is doing what he is doing and not doing what he’s not doing because he is reading and operating from the same basic script as every globalist before him. From George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton to George W. Bush and Barack Obama, the overarching globalist goals are the same.
When Rick Perry tells us all about how we need to be ready to send our children to twenty different countries across the globe at a moment’s notice to bleed and die fighting “terrorists” and “dictators” that we usually funded and installed in the first place, all while his own state of Texas is openly invaded by tens of thousands for the purpose of imploding what’s left of our economy, he’s not just being another “moronically incompetent politician”, tempting though that may be for us to believe.
No, he’s actually doing the right thing.
He’s doing the proven, tried and true thing.
He is doing what works – and works well – for his true case, which, as you may have guessed by now, is not the preservation of Texas or the United States as we understand and appreciate them.
Nope, Republican Rick’s actual allegiance to something even bigger than Texas. Or the United States, for that matter.
Perry’s worldview, like Bush’s and Clinton’s and Obama’s and Romney’s and McCain’s, is globalism.
As such, it makes perfect sense to guys like Rick that Americans ought to be routinely sent overseas to fight and die while their homeland is invaded and fundamentally transformed because that’s what best serves the cause of the globalism.
Forget the rhetoric.
Dismiss the speeches and the conventions.
Filter and tune out the talk radio distractions and propaganda points.
Ignore the controlled, contrived puppet show that is modern American political theater.
Measure these “leaders” by their actions and the past actions of their globalist ilk and things suddenly get much easier understand.
Things get very clear.
And very scary.
Once that path of honest, straightforward assessment is taken, the ugly reality that we’ve ignored and been encouraged to ignore for sooooo long quickly and easily comes into focus: Rick Perry and Pals pursue the same Corpo-State empowering policy paths in practice because the growth of the Corpo-State is their personal path to power and prosperity.
They are team players on Team Globalist. As such, they will say and do whatever it takes to advance the team cause, because when the team wins, they win.
When the power of the State grows, they win.
When the power of the largest corporations grow, they win.
All at the expense of the purposefully enslaved masses.
It’s no more tricky than that.
They choose to grow the Corpo-Fascist State in practice because their personal positions and prosperity are defined by the level of power wielded by that same Corpo-Fascist State.
That really is it.
It’s that simple.
This isn’t rocket-science or brain surgery here, people. There’s no deep mystery to be uncovered or secret decoder ring required.
It’s all right out there. It’s in our face.
Neither Rick Perry, George W. Bush, John McCain, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, nor any other of their Team Globalist club members are ever going to actually defend our border.
They’re never going to actually stop the invasion of illegal immigrants.
And they’re never going to stop sending our children to bleed all over the world for globalist causes.
Because they are all on the same page.
They all want this invasion.
They all want Perpetual War.
They all want a growing Corpo-Fascist State.
They’re all on that team.
All. Of. Them.
What more could they do to make it any more plain?
If we will only take one honest, unflinching look at it all, we might finally notice that it’s all very simple, very coherent, and very obvious:
OUR SYSTEM IS A LIE.
It is a purposeful lie aimed at systematically empowering an elite and enslaving the masses through the long-term imposition of an explicitly anti-Christian, authoritarian Super State. It is a lie that we have enabled…and it is a lie that we can combat and tear apart if only we will repent, believe, and submit to the Light we’ve been given.
It should come as no surprise that combating the globalist, anti-Christian designs of Rick & Friends will center on the local, Christ-centered application of biblical truth in all areas of life.
I hope to soon share some specific ideas for solutions along these Christ-centered, local-focused lines in a book that I am working on now (Fiat Slavery: The Economics of Hell and America).
In the meantime, I want to encourage any Christian reading this to pray that God might grace them with the courage and strength to take the first humble steps toward honestly evaluating beliefs, traditions, and even their own personal contributions to the cultural disaster in which we now find ourselves. We have all contributed; most of us far more than we even know.
As the Lord graces us with ever increasing clarity, let us strive to perpetually repent of our past destructive beliefs and actions as they are revealed to us, however enticing or cherished they may once have been…and may even still be to us now as we struggle by God’s grace to shake free from their long reign of influence over our lives.
As we grow in this way, may we bask in the incomparable warmth of our God-given repentant Spirit and embrace the complete forgiveness given us through supernatural salvation in Christ.
With growth, peace, joy and confidence under our wings, let each of us then do what we have been called and equipped to do as repentant, supernaturally saved New Creatures in Christ, perfectly placed by Him right here and right now in Battlefield America. Let us strive to do everything within our power to actively apply the truth of Christ as revealed in His Word in every realm of His creation, first out of love for Him, and then for the sake of those who will come after us in what once was and can again become “the land of the free and the home of the brave”.
