We Can Change the World

CSC_0431“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Can you guess who said this? It was Margaret Mead, the anthropologist.

Wise words indeed.

And it is so true.  As I look at the news tonight, and see that the House Democrats just voted in a bill that checks off another Communist goal, “transfer powers of arrest from police to social agencies,” my heart begins to pound and I feel panicked.  The truth is, looking at how many of the goals the Communist movement has already achieved in this country  and the weird things that are happening right now, I am scared.

So many very strange things have been happening recently: the dangerous suspension of our rights and transferring of  almost whimsical power to low level bureaucrats, the weird collaboration of government agencies and the media to do things that are unthinkable, such as  looking at rioters who loot and destroy and kill and doing nothing to stop it or to keep us safe.  The government sits on its hands and the media praises the mob. If that’s not weird, I don’t know what is.

And then there are the “swatters,” the ones who  destroy people’s lives, their jobs, their reputations on very, very flimsy evidence as if they are trying to get these people out of the way.  And the media is complicit in the beat downs to the level of providing the supporting propaganda.  Some call it Cancel Culture, others call it terrorism. Whatever it is called, it is a horrible injustice for these people, and no one is standing up for them.

Then there’s the annihilation of our history and our culture by vicious mobs tearing down and burning our cities and monuments.  In the back of my mind I know that cultural annihilation is an integral part of  every fascist-socialist revolution— including Hitler’s in WW2 —since time began. This is not good.   Add to that the unremitting stream of bizarre events that seem to be orchestrated to keep us all off-kilter and  frightened, even imprisoned— when it is common sense that society should be starting to open up, freedoms should be restored and life should be getting back to some semblance of normalcy right now.

And now tonight the House votes in a bill that will decimate the only protection that we have on our side, the local police, and gives the power over us to a social agency whom I’m sure will be made up of the same people who are trying to bring down our society and our culture.

When I look at the Communist goals that were listed so many years ago and see how many of them have already been accomplished, and one more tonight with the Democrat’s vote to transfer the local firepower of the police who are there to protect us to a social agency run by Communists -(-actually, two more goals accomplished as it also fulfills the Communist goal of takeover of at least one American political party), I am terrified that we are at the tail end of a very long quest by the Communists to take over this country.  I fear that we are in the middle of a Communist revolution that shows no signs of abating and  I wonder where we will be by next year and under whose control. Maybe the Democrats don’t care that Joe Biden can’t put two coherent sentences together because they know there will be no election in November.

But I’m trying to look at the bright side.  I also see that what this means is that I need to step up and take a stand.  Maybe the people in charge of the mainstream media have taken it irrevocably to the left and become a part of this problem, but that does not mean that I can’t use my voice to oppose them.  With comments and blogs and any other way to get my message across, I can be a part of the solution, not just by  defending America from the Communists who want to destroy it, but by taking the offense and pushing back on the goals which they think they have a lock on right now.

If their plan was to infiltrate the schools and teach anti-American garbage, my plan is to do whatever I can to teach the truth to people in every way, including about the greatness of our country and her founders.

If their plan is to take God out of our culture, my job is to bring Him back as an integral part of our lives, and to do whatever I can to help to bring us back to Him in order to restore the goodness in our souls.

If their plan is to tear apart families and small children in the womb, to take fathers out of the home and demoralize and belittle men and their role in society, then I can push back and show how important men are to our society and how vital the family is to the integrity of — to the very survival of — all of us.

I remember people used to say that promiscuity doesn’t hurt anyone.  But they were wrong.  The truth is  it destroys everyone, because a part of the reason why we are being attacked by Communists is due to the decay of our integrity, which has severely weakened us a nation. Communists are hyenas, vultures, roaches—feeding on the dying carcass of our American culture. They could not have gotten this far if we were a strong, good and moral country.

“America is great because America is good,” said Alexis de Tocqueville. “And when America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

It’s time to regain that goodness and that greatness be a part of the new American movement—the Resistance.  It’s time to push back, take a stand, start talking, start acting, and start combating the evil. . Time to organize and send those darned Communists back to Hell where they came from. Time to turn around, to turn back to God, to our roots, to our values, back to the freedom that so many have sacrificed their lives for and back to the laws that were put in place so many years ago by brilliant men who were aware of the evil that is trying to encroach upon us and that threatens to swallow us up whole right now.

I vow to resist the Communists, no matter what it takes.

In Genesis 18:32 Abraham bargains with God, asking Him to forego His wrath on the city.  Abraham asked God, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten (good people) can be found there?”

And God relents and agrees that for the sake of the 10, He would not destroy the city.

I’ve always envisioned this as a kind of magic wand thing.  God  could bring it down to smite the city,  but because of those 10  He decided not to use it.

But after looking at the situation we are in now, I wonder if this is really what that passage means? Look at the Communist goals; every single one of them is about attacking our integrity, our morality, our connection with God and each other.   The goals that they accomplished made us more promiscuous, broke apart our families, broke apart our relationships, made us no longer desire goodness, truth and beauty, and got rid of our connection to God and our duty to follow His laws. In other words, the goal of all of these things was to destroy our integrity in order to get us to crumble into decay.  And at the point of decay, when we were so weakened by our lack of integrity,  they began their attack in earnest, certain that we would be too weak to overcome their attempts to crush us.

Look at what is going on right now. I will explain more about the con job that the Marxist trained organizers are playing on us in later posts, but it’s kind of easy to see the absurdity of the things that deceive us.  We fall for manipulated words—for reacting without thinking to their gaslighting of us. We fall like lemmings for the propaganda, for actually very silly, very obviously false propaganda that they’ve convinced us of because of a few tricks they learned  in community organizing school.

And we’ve got real problems with morality beyond not being able to think clearly.  We kill our children so that we can have unrestricted pleasure, we are too cowardly to speak out against injustice or even take a stand against human rights abuses by just refraining from buying cheap trinkets from a country with a horrible record of that sort of thing.  We allowed God to be removed from every aspect of our culture and are even codifying immorality and child murder in our laws.  We did not object strongly enough to the removal of the 10 Commandments in the public square because we thought we’d be good people without them, and we were so wrong. Why not steal and burn and kill? Who is to say those things are wrong without God’s word?

Poor countries are generally poor due to corruption. Poor countries in fact are often rich in resources, but everything gets stolen, no one is safe  and there is no order.  Transactions can’t be trusted because  laws aren’t followed, no one trusts anyone else enough to make contracts with them.   In corrupt countries crime goes unpunished and no one is safe.  That’s exactly what makes those countries so poor–it’s the corruption, it’s the decay.  And this is the kind of country that the Democrats are leading us to—that the Communists behind the masks are trying to turn America into.

So I look at Abraham’s conversation with God and I think–maybe virtue is its own reward.  Maybe if just 10 people are God-fearing enough and good enough—if just 10 people have  integrity, it will keep the bottom-feeders from swooping in on us to feast on the decay.

Maybe we are not in the midst of  a fascist-socialist revolution. Maybe this is just a small minority of people who are using the media to appear larger and more powerful than they are. And Maybe there are lots and lots of good people in America—many more than 10 —- and we will overcome this challenge because of it.

Or maybe we are really that far gone. Either way,  the only thing to do is to turn back to God.  All of us right now, we are living in this place at this time for a reason.  And it truly only takes a committed group of people to turn things around and change the world.  What have we got to lose by trying?

I vow to be a part of the resistance. How about you?

 

 

 

 

Alinsky’s Rules

Here are Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals

1. Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.

2. Never go outside the expertise of your people.

3. Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. (Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty)

4.  Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. (This is often used against Christians, again using deceptive tactics.  For example, people say….  You are not supposed to judge! You are supposed to love (which is manipulated to mean that you are to believe that everything that everyone does is perfectly fine unconditionally or you are not a Christian.) Any objection is seen as intolerance or a move against peace. These are often used and contorted to assert that to be Christian means to be NICE, even obsequiously nice in all situations and to never take an opposing stance.

Even more frequently, the Alinskyite disguises himself as a friend or a fellow citizen  but uses that position in order to attack.  So any objection or countering of the Alinsky position is considered impolite and unchristian.

But the appropriate reaction to being attacked is COURAGE.  Christians need to stand for the truth. They need to uncover the works of darkness.  And they need to stand firm when they are attacked and NOT agree that they are being “impolite” or “unchristian”  by taking a stand.

5.  Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. (Personal attacks and mocking your opponent take the conversation away from the issues and target it on the personality of your enemy.  The strategic advantages are many.  There’s no logical defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy .into concessions. Nobody wants to be publicly humiliated.  Many of the 12 rules are used together to intimidate people ).

6.  A good tactic is one your people enjoy.

7.  A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

8. Keep the pressure on. Never let up. —Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. Attack, attack, attack…..

9.  The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.   Demoralize your opponent. Note how this is used to prevent people in charge from speaking up. The attacks are individualized, personal, constant, attacking from all sides—eg. the mob goes to the house of a politician and screams in the middle of the night or breaks windows etc. A community organized group starts leveling accusations, no matter how minor or even untrue and gets people fired, gets their spouses fired, ruins their reputations, goes to their employers and gets them to apologize if they try to defend the victim.  The media quite happily joins in and completes the destruction of the person’s reputation. The threat that these politicians, business leaders and other pivotal people see and are terrified of is the total destruction of a human being.  They don’t want that to happen to them.  So that is why we are seeing people run for the hills when they should be taking control of the situation and punishing people who commit violent crimes.  The threat of the “swatting” keeps these leaders from doing  or saying  anything that would make them stand out and be targeted by the mob. And so the vicious, Communist mob tears apart America with no one to challenge them. What they don’t realize is that we will all be victims of that mob when the Communists take over (which looks like it will be happening very soon) because of their cowardice and dereliction of duty.

10.  If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.

An example could be inciting and creating violence so terrible that  the other side to begins to use violence against your people.  That creates revolution (a plus for Communist agitators) and works to turn people against your opponent.

This has also been interpreted as pushing a lie so hard and so loudly and persistently that people begin to accept it as true.  The phrase was actually attributed to a propagandist who aided Hitler, Joseph Goebbels.  The phrase attributed to Goebbels was “if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Goebbels also added an interesting follow up.  ” The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

11.  The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. (Here, the “constructive alternative”  is the transfer of power, the replacement of American freedom with Communist totalitarianism, which is basically the whole point.  For example,  the constructive alternative to the recent riots is to wrest power away from the police who are there to protect the people and put it in the hands of a “social agency” controlled by the socialists who now have control over the local firepower in communities. )

12. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.  — Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

We’ve seen a lot of this tactic  in recent days. Also see how this connects  to Rules 5, 8,  9 and 1.

So those are all of Alinsky’s 12  Rules.  Stay tuned and I will assign one or more of these tactics to characters in our card game.  Let’s just say that “Jack the Swatter” is not a nice guy, and our “King” has power and control issues but got the nickname, “the Wizard of Oz” because he isn’t quite as powerful as he pretends to be.  The Joker is an Imposter—he doesn’t belong in the game, but there he is with an elaborate façade.   And let me tell you about the Queen……well, stay tuned…..  :-)

What Happens When You Start to Think for Yourself

Here is a video of two of my favorite people in the whole world:

https://youtu.be/yPxslHw5cK4

What happens when you start to think for yourself?

1) You get attacked.

2) You become the person whom you were meant to be.

It reminds me of Jesus’ words in Matthew 10:39

“He that findeth his life shall lose it and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it.”

You can’t be afraid of standing for the truth, of doing the right thing.  If you try to hold on to your old life of sinking in to the routine and going along with the world in order to keep yourself safe and comfortable, you never really live, you never do what God put you on this earth to do and your time on earth doesn’t really make a difference.

But if you are willing to lose the comfort of an easy life, and you are willing to think for yourself and stand up for the truth, knowing that you will face hardship and that you will be attacked for your faith and for righteousness,  you find your purpose in life, and you fulfill the reason why God put you on this earth at this place and at this time.

 

 

 

Card # 5 COMMUNIST GOALS

the 5Here are a few of the Communist goals that were discovered and written into the Congressional record in the late 1950′s.  Many of the ones I’ve listed have obviously, disturbingly been successfully completed.   From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen (p.269 and ff.)

Discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture.”

Discredit the American Founding Fathers.  Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.  Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.” Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books

Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the school on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state”

Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social religion.” Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

CAPTURE ONE OR BOTH OF THE POLITICAL PARTIES IN THE UNITED STATES

Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of the teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing and policy-making positions. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures. Gain control of all student newspapers.

Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

TRANSFER SOME OF THE POWERS OF ARREST FROM THE POLICE TO SOCIAL AGENCIES. 

Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

…”Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive meaningless art.

Belittle all forms of American Culture.

CREATE THE IMPRESSION THAT VIOLENCE AND INSURRECTION ARE LEGITIMATE ASPECTS OF THE AMERICAN TRADITION; THAT STUDENTS AND SPECIAL-INTEREST GROUPS SHOULD RISE UP AND USE “UNITED FORCE” TO SOLVE ECONOMIC, POLITICAL OR SOCIAL PROBLEMS.

Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike. (Note this concept could also apply to giving away power over the Internet, which President Obama did a few years ago.)

 

GREAT NEWS SITES

It is getting increasingly difficult to find quality news.    Newspapers DSC_0206and media outlets that used to be credible, that presented the news for the most part fairly and impartially  no longer do this.  Their slant is so bad, the bias so pronounced that it’s difficult to trust anything they say.   And so where do you go to find news that matters—to find the truth?
