The problem is more spiritual than political

Personality politics have pre-empted a commitment to the Christian faith upon which America’s history has been based. It is now more important to defend a person or a group of persons than it is to stand firm upon the truth, which is objective and no respecter of persons.

Some have said we are not conservative because we dare to suggest that a primary challenge would be good for America. Defending the incumbent has become more urgent than looking at things as they really are.

Many in America and the world no longer see events through a Christian lens. They lack the perspective that everything plays a role in God’s eternal plan. That’s why a self-admitted hedonist and adulterer was elevated to the highest office in our land.

Such excuses are used as we need a Commander-in-Chief but not a Pastor-in-Chief. But, God’s Will be done whether it be willingly or unknowingly.

Trumpism is not synonymous with Conservatism. Many true conservatives were disenfranchised through the shenanigans of the Republican Party in Cleveland in 2016.

They did not allow the delegates to vote their conscience. They changed state tallies over the objections of the delegates. They ramrodded through a nominee that many did not choose.

That said, it is wrong to accuse those who propose a primary challenge as being “Never Trump”. I have said repeatedly that he is less problematic than the perverted Democrat alternative and that I will support and vote for him if he is our binary choice.

But it’s obvious that there is much more involved here than just politics. Ephesians 6:12 confirms that there are spiritual forces arrayed against us in this world. They are manipulating human emotions around the world.

Look again briefly at Christchurch. The facts of the matter and the overwhelming body of evidence remain that Islamic Jihad comprises the primary threat to world security. The attack in New Zealand was an anomaly. Whether or not it was a conscious attempt of the perpetrator, it was absolutely a purposeful event by evil spiritual forces.

So many Christians today are Christians in name only. That is a far deeper problem than Republicans in name only in our own country.

NZ PM Jacinda Ardern donned a hijab and celebrated the Islamic call to prayer just one week after Christchurch. She instantly unlearned the lessons of former PM John Key who admitted during his tenure that there were Islamic terrorist operatives based in New Zealand. Whatever her own religious upbringing, she immediately embraced Islam as the symbol of her people henceforth.

If Christians in our own country and the rest of the world do not base their view of society upon the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they will continue to be susceptible to every false doctrine that comes along. You have only to look at the words of Muhammad in the Quran to see the mischaracterization of Jesus and His followers.

We are not going to debate the theology. My point is simply that Christians are not standing for our faith the way that Muslims do for theirs.

In America, as long as we continue to embrace every strong personality without discernment, we are headed for disaster. Worldwide, both here and abroad, if we do not understand our own beliefs, we will jump on the bandwagon and condemn our own traditions in favor of political correctness every time.

At NOQ Report, we strive to objectively analyze the news and current events. We present analyses that you are not seeing in the mainstream media. You are free to agree or disagree. We are crowdfunded and your continued support is much appreciated.

Freedom of speech and opinion is what America is all about. NZ has no 1st Amendment as we do nor a history of free speech. The UK imprisons street preachers because it might offend Islam.

In the United States, we can discuss Presidents and ideologies freely and objectively. This is a right we must treasure and defend vigorously or it will go away!

Sign the petition demanding an investigation of the investigators

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian hacking of the 2016 election has been completed and the investigation’s report has been released, we have more questions than we have answers.

Why was it started in the first place? It seems circular reasoning and opposition research were the only pieces of “evidence” used to justify extensive spying on the Trump campaign and the subsequent investigation. This does not clear the threshold of viable suspicion necessary for FISA warrants and clearly was not an appropriate starting point upon which to launch an investigation.

Why was it allowed to continue for so long? The report indicates early on, the investigation saw it was extremely unlikely they would find evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians. Moreover, the report demonstrates the Russians were acting of their own accord to “hack” the elections, but were unsuccessful in generating enough manipulative propaganda to sway a significant chunk of voters.

Were political motivations at play? At this point, the answer seems obvious. From President Obama’s administration to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to left-leaning elements within the FBI itself, it’s conspicuous that attempts to not only manufacture wrongdoing by candidate Trump but also to hide wrongdoing by candidate Clinton were in full effect.

Two years and $30 million in taxpayer dollars should have yielded answers. It did not. The reason isn’t that there were no answers to be found. It’s that they were looking in the wrong places. It’s time to look in the right places. Sign this petition.

How President Reagan’s two harshest warnings are at play in America today

How President Reagans two harshest warnings are at play in America today

President Ronald Reagan is famous for his one-liners. Some were funny, such as “there you go again.” Others were threatening, such as, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” It seemed like he was always going to say something profound when he spoke which helped make him one of the most liked Presidents in modern history.

There were two quotes in particular that are at play today. Both were warnings and both seem to be coming to fruition in ways many Americans likely didn’t think possible a decade or two ago. I know I didn’t. I knew it was possible for things to change over time and for the overarching sentiment of the nation to shift, but I did not anticipate we would be so close to them becoming a reality in my lifetime, let alone in such a short period of time.

Let’s look at the two quotes and how the warnings from President Reagan are not being heeded, thus setting us on a collision course with what he feared for America’s future.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

When my son was in high school, I often asked him about the state of affairs with the youth of the time. He is a patriot and I always heard the doom and gloom from many parents who said the schools were indoctrinating their children into false belief systems and failed ideologies. Despite these reports, I never feared for his generation because they were just as appalled by 9/11 as mine was. They may not have been as cognizant of the geopolitical implications, nor were they as concerned about Islamic radicalization as the older generations who reacted to the attacks, but they still loved America.

In many ways, the leftist indoctrination was incremental. The internet and the rise of gaming technology had much more of a negative effect on his generation than any ideological pushes. But today’s younger generation is different. We see them doing things that make no sense. I don’t want to make blanket claims, but this isn’t the same thing as the standard generational condemnation placed on youths from parents who don’t understand. I do understand what this generation is seeing and doing. It’s not good.

This is a generation that is polling between 40%-55% in favor of socialism. Think about that. Such concepts were unthinkable to all previous American generations because they all recognized the fallacies of socialism based on what they were taught by parents, teachers, professors, each other, and most recently on the internet itself. But the fringe professors of the past are the mainstream professors of today. Even high school teachers have become so unhinged with their teachings that many, particularly younger ones, feel it’s necessary to instill a sense of hostility towards their own country.

What was once anecdotal is now so commonplace it no longer makes for a good headline. It’s expected. The gap in understanding about the nature of socialism, communism, and other radical philosophies in government have yielded a generation that no longer cares so much about their freedom. They are a generation of contradictions and enigmas; they don’t want to be told what to do yet they want the government to step in and get involved in everything.

How did this happen? How did we go from a generation like the one that grew up under Reagan and the subsequent generation that grew up through 9/11, both of whom loved and appreciated America, to the generation of today that is suddenly against everything signified by America’s actual existence? To answer that, we need to look at Reagan’s second great warning.

“If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

I don’t think I need to explain this one at all. If you’re a believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, one who practices a Judeo-Christian faith, then you are very well aware that our nation is slipping away from the religious foundation that not only built us but kept us improving as a country until recently. One can look at Roe v. Wade, gay marriage, or other political examples of the nation’s faith slipping away, but those are symptoms. The cultural shift away from the faith is the root cause of our nation’s moral distress.

One cannot be surrounded by sin and expect that it won’t creep into his house.

But the Biblical writers often told of challenges from within the church itself. We’re seeing this as the spirit of antichrist today manifesting in false teachers and dismal representatives of the Gospel. Ask today’s youthful generation to name a religious leader. The answers will vary but chances are strong they’ve heard of a prosperity gospel megachurch pastor or a corrupt televangelist. They see the greed that drives so many in false church and they believe this is what the faith is all about. They see Westboro Baptist Church, the priest sex scandals, and pastors telling their congregations they need a bigger jet.

If the “church” represents greed, bigotry, and sexual misconduct to this generation, why would they turn to it for their own understanding of life?

It’s not a stretch to generalize that this generation, at least a very large chunk of it, worship on the altars of climate change, transhumanism, and Hollywood morality. They cannot reconcile their strong beliefs against the persecution of the LGBTQ community and still find personal solace in a religious movement that is allegedly doing the persecuting.

I had a jarring conversation a few years back with a gay friend. We were up late one night talking about his beliefs. He knew (as all do deep down) that there must be a creator, but no argument I made for the truth of the Bible could convince him righteousness could be found there. This was my own shortcoming, something I’ve regretted ever since. I failed him by not being able to overcome the perception of hatred he felt was directed towards him by “church folks.”

We must all do better.

Reagan feared a generation that abandoned freedom and a country that abandoned faith. It shouldn’t be surprising that the greatest threat to our future as a nation is the symbiotic expansion of both of his greatest fears.
