Is America on the fast track back to slavery?

Published

on

For Immediate Release (Phoenix, AZ) – Could America be on the fast track to slavery? In his debut book, “Entitled to Slavery: A Blueprint for Breaking the Chains that Threaten American Exceptionalism,” (WND Books) conservative writer and commentator Michael Abbott explores this question by pointing out the destructive course that has felled societies throughout history. With detailed research and anecdotal evidence, Abbott makes the case that America is on that same course, and both political parties are to blame.

“History shows every advanced society progressing through the following nine stages:  bondage…to great spiritual faith…to courage…to liberty…to abundance…to selfishness…to complacency…to apathy…to dependence… and tragically back into slavery,” says Abbott.  “When the secular culture tells us that we are ‘moving forward’ or ‘progressing as a culture,’ they are exactly right! What they don’t realize, however, is that we are only moving forward to the next stage in this lifecycle, which is the default human condition of slavery.”

Abbott hits every political hot button issue in “Entitled to Slavery” including how the public education system is taking away parents’ rights; how Common Core is modeled after the regimes of Mao and Lenin; how progressives reveal their true religion by evangelizing climate change and minimum wage directives; and how abortion is the glue binding it all together.

“Capitalism teaches man how to swim.  Communism teaches man how to drown.
Progressivism teaches man that water doesn’t even exist,” Abbott explains.

Abbott makes the claim that America is somewhere between apathy and dependence on the lifecycle of human civilization. But he offers surprisingly simple suggestions as to how to avoid the ninth and final stage of the cycle, which is slavery.

“Progressivism must be cut off at the root,” says Abbott. “There are solutions hiding in plain sight, but today’s parents will need to get serious about their responsibilities if there is any hope for the next generation. It is possible to turn our culture around and start going backwards on the civilization life cycle. If we walk back our complacency and selfishness, we can get back to abundance. There is remarkable reason for optimism.”

Q&A with Author Michael Abbott:

Q: The media and academia typically label Christians and conservatives as being “anti-science.” Is this accurate?

 A: Actually, this label perfectly describes the media and academia! Did you know the current application for admission at the University of California features six different options for a candidate’s gender? Think of that: a state university formally rejecting biological science…on its application for admission into the College of Biological Sciences! Here’s a second example. Why do certain politically-expedient positions, such as climate change, receive an exemption from the rigors of the scientific method? Time and again, the terrifying predictions of climate alarmists fail to materialize, but we are told to ignore this scientific data and continue extending our blind support. That is antithetical to science. Lastly, why do emotional appeals to increase the minimum wage completely disregard tangible economic data proving it will only worsen teenage unemployment? My book empowers conservatives with many effective counterarguments when wrongfully branded with this label.

Q: One of the chapters is called A Shameless, Parental Dereliction of Duty. What are you referring to?

A: Every parent wants what’s best for their children; however, by and large, we have parented our children according to what I term the four pillars of modern parenting. The first of these is the promotion of poverty. How can indebting young adults to the tune of $200,000 for a college degree possibly be in their best interests? The second is the outsourcing of supervision. The television, tablet, and smartphone open up a world of information, but without any controls, they function as virtual pacifiers for our young children. The third is the rejection of work, despite the fact that work is the very prerequisite for attaining independence! The final pillar is the suppression of discipline, a tool of correction that has become misconstrued as a form capital punishment. Together, they provide the perfect recipe for the rearing of children who are totally dependent and directionless as they enter adulthood.

Q:  Why would the national department of health order doctors to violate the Hippocratic Oath?

A:  Because we live in a culture that rejects biological science.  Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act prohibits any discrimination in health programs on the basis of a number of factors, including age.  Last year, the US Department of Health and Human Services issued rules informing doctors that declining to perform gender reassignment surgery on children could be a potentially career-ending decision.  Why?  Well, it would constitute discrimination on the basis of age.  Did you know that WebMD links gender dysphoria with severe distress, anxiety, and depression, and UCLA researchers found that 41% of people who suffer from gender dysphoria attempt suicide at some point in their lives?  Yet, by law, we now force doctors to perform a procedure on a child that will likely lead to distress, anxiety, depression, and even suicide.  Those aren’t my words; that’s scientific research.  This is how the Affordable Care Act orders doctors to violate the Hippocratic Oath.

The strange tale of the Turpin family

The strange tale of the Turpin family

Abuse of children is one of the most horrible things anyone can do. Rarely do I even read stories about abuse. I know it exists. I’m against it. I don’t want reminders of how evil some people really are. The story of the Turpin family drew me in and made me weep for a world that allows such things to happen.

Here’s the story, followed by my brief thoughts:

California family: Parents charged after children found shackled

http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/16/us/california-turpin-13-siblings-held-captive/index.htmlDavid, 57, and Louise, 49, are accused of holding their children captive in their Perris, California, home in filthy conditions, some of them shackled to beds with chains and padlocks. The 13 siblings range in age from 2 to 29.

The parents are charged with torture and child endangerment, and scheduled for a court hearing Thursday. Bail was set at $9 million each. It was not immediately clear if the suspects had attorneys or whether they had entered a plea.

On Sunday, one of their daughters, a 17-year-old, managed to escape from their home by climbing out a window and called 911 from a deactivated cell phone she found in the house, police said. She told officers her parents were holding her 12 siblings captive inside the home, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.

My Take

There’s a danger here. We have to be mindful of children who are being abused. Unfortunately, that also means there will be times when the state must intervene. Any time that happens, I get worried. I want as little intervention as possible and only when absolutely necessary. The story of the Turpin family is an example of it being necessary.

The problem is that this evil was allowed to continue for decades. How can that happen? How do we respect the rights of parents and embrace a non-interfering government when there are people like the Turpins in the world? It’s a slippery slope and I have no answers.

Is the Republican Party racist?

Is the Republican Party racist

Racism isn’t broken down by party lines. There are racists in every political party in America. Some are more public than others, but generally speaking it’s clear there are racists everywhere. Thankfully, there are fewer of them today than in the past. A good part of the reason for this is cultural, but politically it’s been the Republican Party, not the Democratic Party, that has championed the cause of equal rights.

Unfortunately, there are two things that are changing the way history is perceived by many Americans. The first is a false narrative created by both mainstream media and liberal activists who paint the GOP as racists. The second is the reality of conservative values. While the fight for smaller government and more freedom is a righteous one, it’s also a fight that is more appealing to racists than the liberal ideologies of more government and less freedom.

Historically, the evidence is clearly on the side of the GOP, as this PragerU video demonstrates.

Kevin Swanson: Christian persecution is a good thing

Kevin Swanson Christian persecution is a good thing

On the January 5, 2018, Generations podcast, Kevin Swanson points to the recent Oregon Court of Appeals ruling in favor of a lesbian couple who were emotionally distraught that Sweet Cakes By Melissa would not honor their same-sex wedding by making them a wedding cake. As a means of business transaction, the state of Oregon basically told its citizens that they must enter a private contract with certain parties just because they happen to be gay and want them to honor their marriage or anything LGBTQ related because they have “rights.” If someone wants to honor God’s Law and God’s Holy Word, you should not have the power to force them to sin against God which the state wants many Christians to do. The LGBTQ jihad have successfully destroyed a family-run business in Oregon.

As we all know, Christian persecution is nothing new but especially in America. It just seems to be magnified thanks to the LGBTQ/Rainbow Jhaid being the progressives ‘imperial stormtroopers.’ Swanson points out the times in which Samuel Worcester (who sided with the Cherokee Indians who did not want to abandon their lands thanks to President Andrew Jackson who wanted the lands to mine for gold and helped usher in “The Trail of Tears.” Lest we forget that Jackson used blacks as slaves and as his own prostitutes), Everett Siliven (a Nebraska Baptist pastor who had to shut down his church-run private school for children because it was not “licensed” by the state), and Randy Alcorn (a pastor sued by Planned Parenthood for “transpassing on their property” because they wanted to encourage women not to murder their unborn babies) lived in the persecution they had to deal with.

They may be footnotes in history, but they really should not be. It is the testimony of how the State wants to take God’s place in this world, and do whatever it wants regardless of who it harms for their respected personal gains. Compared to what? Jackson and company getting rich at the expense of displacing Native Americans? Giving up Christian education because you’re not licensed by the state and sending children to the government-run monopoly to become the next useful idiots for the pagans that rule the world? Or being able to murder pre-born babies so you need not worry about the procreation part of sexual relations?

Christians can’t be cowards in any day and age. If we don’t stand for God, then the pagans would have then and now scored victories against God and his Holy Law, in their attempts to break free of God himself and earn salvation on their own. Many people have died for the faith and they have been allowed by the Grace of God to be remembered. Other people have come to Jesus because of the people that gave their lives and freedoms for the Lord. In that sense, persecution is a good thing.

Inevitable Persecution for U.S. Christians

https://www.generations.org/programs/836The family bakery in Oregon lost their appeal, and now they are forced to surrender $135,000 to a lesbian couple for not supporting their wedding. Christians who believe even the most rudimentary Christian truths have fallen into the very slim minority, and are persecuted as such.  We go through the history of Christian persecution in the United States from Samuel Worcester in the 1830s to Everett Siliven, Randy Alcorn, and other familiar names of those who have suffered for the faith.
