2018: The year the far-Left became openly hostile to the cause of Liberty

2018 The year the far-Left became openly hostile to the cause of Liberty

Looking back at 2018 and how the Parkland mass murder caused the Left snap and drop the pretence of being Liberal.

Reviewing the year 2018, one is struck by the fact that it was turning point with the far-Left drop kicking the mask concealing their true authoritarian ideals. There are times when one feels compelled to write about certain subjects or choose certain items for lists and other compilations. Last December, one New Year’s resolution was to stop complimenting Leftists with the term ‘Liberal’. While being an ongoing issue, it didn’t seem that prevalent. Never the less, there seemed to be a certain sense of being ‘guided’ to add this to the list. Little did we know that it turned out to be quite prescient in that 2018 was the year the Socialist-Left turned their back on Liberty.

The new year started like most others in the midst of a cold winter for those in more mountainous or northern climes due to the ravages of Global cooling.. er.. Global Warming because there is nothing like the planet becoming colder due to the planet getting hotter, at least for one hemisphere.

It was mid February when an event took place that was pivotal in the far Left’s relationship to freedom. After local law enforcement dropped the ball in dealing with a troubled teenager and failed to protect the children, the Parkland mass murder tragedy took place, becoming the top news story of the year, according to a survey by the associated press.

A perfect ‘Serious crisis’ to help those hostile to Liberty.

The crisis was a ‘perfect storm’ bringing forth a small group of teenagers of the correct political persuasion. Old enough to be exploited by the Liberty grabber groups, but young enough that any legitimate criticism of them would be akin to attacking ‘children’. The ‘March for our lives’ movement seemed to spring up almost overnight, with a little help from the usual suspects in the gun confiscation groups.

These ‘serious crisis’ have always been exploited by those who keep up the pretext of being ‘Liberal’ while working to squeeze the Life out of Liberty. The lists of Leftists demanding gun confiscation always seem to have quite a few centred around these crises. It has always been their MO to make the false claim of the ‘easy access’ to guns, get whatever constrictions they can on our freedom and then patiently wait for the next serious crisis they can exploit to make the very same assertions.

For some reason, this event changed all that. In much the same way that political campaigns have become permanent cultural fixtures. This launched a permanent campaign to evince a design to the Left’s ultimate goal of gun confiscation.

Expanding the attack on Liberty.

The main feature of this ‘serious crisis’ was that it caused the far-Left to snap and widen their assault on Liberty. They used to just assail the commonsense human right of self-defense, this time around they expanded the attack on other rights that are supportive of self-preservation. Soon enough, YouTube began taking down videos on various innocuous aspects of Gunsmithing. Various corporations of a Leftist authoritarian bent began trying to dictate the extent of our civil rights by refusing to sell certain types of perfectly ordinary and legal firearms. As well as arbitrarily deciding who can buy firearms based on age.

Then of course there was the ‘March for our lives’ event last spring. Hordes of adults being cast as children by the media finally being open and honest about dictating the limits of our Liberty and of course gun confiscation. The watchword was on 21st century weapons, even though most of these originated in the previous two. But then again, the Liberty grabber Left has never let the facts get in the way of a good emotional appeal devoid of the truth.

Gun Confiscation SWATing with so-called ‘Red-Flag’ laws.

On the governmental side of the Left’s offense on freedom, politicians on all levels hit on the concept of Gun Confiscation SWATing with so-called ‘Red-Flag’ laws. Whereby those deemed ‘dangerous’ or just guilty of ‘thoughtcrime’ by a select few could suddenly find themselves at the blunt end of a battering ram with the government breaking down their door to confiscate their means of self-defense. Never mind that most jurisdictions already had laws covering this problem.

Often times, certain vestiges of culture can become codified in law when exploited by Leftists trying to enhance their raw political power. Such is the case with Gun Confiscation SWATing. What began as a way of someone attempting revenge by falsifying caller ID data, telephoning in a report to law enforcement to as to get a response via a SWAT team. Has morphed into an official set of laws making it possible for people such as neighbours or friends to deprive someone of their property without Constitutional protection of due process or even their knowledge until it’s too late. This has already resulted in the death the of one man for the ‘crime’ of possessing a means of self-defense.

Going after the right of self-defense with a flanking attack on freedom.

It was only after the Parkland tragedy that the Left decided that the best way of making self-defense illegal was by going after other freedoms that undergird this basic human right. Social media companies began implementing draconian politics to suppress free-speech that verges on guns or other verboten subjects.

True to form, a Leftist politician chose to try to exploit this trend codifying that one must submit to a ‘thoughtcrime’ investigation to exercise a basic human right. Presumably, one is only ‘allowed’ to have these God given rights if one has the correct way of thinking.

The Left also wants the banks to control your freedom.

Then in a last outrageous development for the year, the New York times outlined how it wants private businesses in the form of certain financial institutions to police the credit card purchases of those desirous of their Constitutional and natural rights. In addition to all the national, state and local laws that already infringe on the right of self-preservation, New York times in it’s infinite wisdom would like banks to look over the shoulder of private citizens and decide the limits of their Liberty.

The Takeaway.

What began with a low-level issue of the Left exploiting a word to create the false impression of support of Liberty. Has transitioned to one where they have made a mockery of the concept.

The right of self-defense is the bedrock of Liberty. One cannot exercise any other rights if the Left has a monopoly on the use of force. Those who love the pretence of supposedly being Liberal, have made it their life’s work in depriving the people of its most fundamental aspect. They’ve expanded their attack to the other freedoms that are mutually supportive of this right, no doubt this will intensify in the new year.

The Evangelical Dark Web

Published

The Evangelical Dark Web

The battle for the soul of the evangelical church in the United States spans across the remaining denominations that have not openly fallen into apostasy. The United Methodist Church was saved by the African delegations from rejecting biblical ministry standards. The Southern Baptist Convention struggles to reject critical race theory. Many denominations have split over the encroachment of liberal or progressive theology such as the PCA. This constant fight to maintain the doctrine of the church from false teachers is never ending, dating back to the divinely inspired writings of Paul. The Evangelical Dark Web is the latest decentralized movement in the fight against false teachers infiltrating the church.

As I enter the fray to defend the church, it is important to recognize that, in defending the church from the false doctrines and heretics, the stakes are eternal. We live in a Romans 1 era.

28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

The country’s descent into decadence, it’s rejection of truth, is evident in seemingly every area, and the church is unimmune. The attack on the church is one that seeks to pacify the gospel with worldly ideas. I identify three false gospels, in which, the Evangelical Dark Web combats that seek to subvert Christianity. Note: these do not include cults that identify as Christian.

The Prosperity Gospel

The word of faith heresy reduces the God of the universe to a vending machine with a “name it and claim it” philosophy. It conforms the gospel to a self-help ritual so that the practitioners can get rich and stay healthy. In short, the Prosperity Gospel is about using God to achieve worldly desires.

The Social Justice Gospel

The Social Justice Gospel can be briefly summarized as antinomianism combined with postmodernism. This heresy reduces God by denying the Word. Sanctification is discouraged. Its Jesus is a brown skinned Palestinian. Its evangelism is affirming the world. Its sacrament is abortion. Its charity is entitlement programs. Belief in the Resurrection is optional, and Muslims worship the same god. The Social Justice Gospel is the troll to the Bride of Christ. It’s how the world wants Christianity to be, if people are to identify as Christian and those who practice the Social Justice Gospel always feel the need to call out Christians who hold to orthodox doctrine.

This doctrine is a parasite. Churches who partake in the parasite dwindle, and so the parasite must find a new church to infiltrate, for the Social Justice Gospel cannot survive in the world it wants to create.

The Popularity Gospel

The Popularity Gospel is most difficult to explain. It reduces Jesus to the popular kid in high school. It’s hard to describe a heresy that creates an idol out of the living God, but this phenomenon is prophesied in scripture:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 NASB

The Popularity Gospel is an artificial image of Jesus that appeals to the masses. It’s often identifiable in those who employ a worldly definition of love when talking about a savior whose kingdom is not of this world. God is all “love” and no wrath. Its favorite verses poll extremely well. We aren’t being saved from sin; we are trusting in Jesus to protect, lead, and bless us. You are good. Jesus makes you better. This diluted gospel accepts worldly premises on goodness, judgment, love, and Christianity as a whole. Its church organizations are mass growth marketing mechanisms. Its sermons are elementary. Its commission is to baptize believers, nevermind discipleship. Discipleship requires critically thinking. With the Popularity Gospel, one just has to sit back, enjoy the entertainment, ambiance, and childcare.

Unlike the Social Justice Gospel, the Popularity Gospel is self-sustaining because marketing works, and the masses enjoy being entertained. What I described was the megachurch motif.

The Movement

A number of Christians are waking up to the spiritual battle that is going on within the Church, realizing, how many leaders are perpetuating or capitulating to the corrupting forces of the three aforementioned heresies. Just as academia in this country has largely been corrupted, our seminaries, likewise, are under attack. If the institutions that train the pastorate in this country fail, churches will struggle to find pastors worthy of the calling.

In the last few years, church leaders have responded with faith statements such as the Nashville Statement and the Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel to redress such pressing issues. But these faith statements, while a commendable effort, are insufficient in rooting out false teachers by themselves. For the Bible says:

10 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. Titus 3:10-11 ESV

Christianity needs a united front against such heresies mentioned above as they would, in modern times, be united against the teachings of Arian. Orthodoxy must be enforced even if it means powerful figures in Big Eva get cast out in the process.

In championing the disparaging title Brian Auten and Jake Meador over at Mere Orthodoxy, this platform seeks to be theologically sound, historically literate, and culturally relevant, as called in facing the most pressing threat Christianity is facing in America today.

Facebook uncensors Live Action after Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley intervene

Facebook uncensors Live Action after Ted Cruz Josh Hawley intervene

Pro-life activist group Live Action has been in hot water with Facebook since last month. They’ve been accused of spreading false news after a fact-check group claimed a video of Lila Rose saying “abortions is never medically necessary” was false. This drew the attention of Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, both of whom have been going after Facebook for anti-conservative bias in their censorship patterns for some time.

As part of Facebook’s International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), a group called Health Feedback used the fact-checking of two physicians with ties to pro-abortion groups. This led to the group’s page and content being censored with reduced exposure and warnings placed on their content as fake news.

Cruz and Hawley sent a letter to Facebook calling for an investigation and noting they’ve already uncovered multiple cases of unabashed bias against conservative content on pages. Facebook replied in an unexpectedly compliant manner.

“We have been in touch with the IFCN which has opened an investigation to determine whether the fact checkers who rated this content did so by following procedures designed to ensure impartiality,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “While the IFCN investigates, we are removing the relevant fact checks and have communicated this to the members of the US Senate who brought this specific concern to our attention.”

Facebook removes fact check from anti-abortion video after criticism

The fact check was published by the group Health Feedback, part of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), which is partnered with Facebook to crack down on misinformation on the platform. Health Feedback’s reviews rated Rose’s claim as inaccurate, saying, “Certain medical conditions such as placenta previa and HELLP syndrome can make abortion a necessary medical procedure in order to prevent the mother’s death.”

Live Action said that after the fact check was posted late last month, the group was notified by Facebook that its page’s content would be subject to “reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news.”

Censorship by Big Tech is an ongoing issue that requires both lawmakers and conservative users to stand out ground. They are protected as unbiased platforms by Section 230. They need to play fair.

Two presidential candidates attended conference conducted by gay- and Jew-hating Islamists

Two presidential candidates attended conference conducted by gay- and Jew-hating Islamists

America’s mainstream media is following around the major presidential candidates like ducklings chasing after their mothers. They cover every move they make, word they speak, and hand they shake. But there are times when the media goes silent and selectively omits an activity from being reported. Such was the case for those covering Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro, who spoke at the ISNA Convention two weeks ago.

Oh, you didn’t hear about that one? It’s because the ISNA Convention included a who’s-who list of known jihadists, anti-Semites, and people who call for the death of all homosexuals. That’s not the kind of event the mainstream media likes to publicize for their puppetmasters.

Bernie Sanders Attends ISNA Convention With Islamists Who Backed Killing Gay People

When ISNA, an Islamic group accused of supporting terrorists, announced a presidential forum for ISNACON 2019, the expectations were low. The Islamic Society of North America had been created by Muslim Brotherhood members and was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas Holy Land Foundation trial.

And even if the 2020 Democrats were willing to overlook the minor matter of murdering Jews, which they usually are, Muzammil Siddiqi, ISNA’s former president who chairs its Fiqh Council, which dispenses Islamic sharia law, has assented to the death penalty for homosexuality.

At the 2019 ISNA convention, Siddiqi spoke on “Strengthening Our Connection with Allah.”

Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing, was there at an Imam Round Table. Wahhaj has repeatedly endorsed violence against non-Muslims. That wouldn’t bother Democrats, but Wahhaj has also declared that “masculine women” are “cursed”, claimed that the “feminist movement” is headed by “lesbians” and then offered a reminder of Islam’s LGBT position.

“And you know, brothers and sisters, you know what the punishment is, if a man is found with another man? The Prophet Mohammad said the one who does it and the one to whom it is done to, kill them both,” Imam Wahhaj said.

Democrats who want to win the nomination need the Muslim vote. But many of the thought-leaders in Muslim communities promote an agenda that is antithetical to the Democrats’ stance, particularly as it pertains to the LGBTQ community. It’s for this reason we do not see reports of these activities in the mainstream media. They’d rather take an extended coffee break or bash on President Trump while major Democratic candidates speak to Islamists.

The symbiotic relationship between the Democratic Party and radical is not based on shared values, only a shared enemy. Both want Trump and as many Republicans as possible out of Washington DC in 2020.
