Waning Freedom Wherefore The Dilemma

The Covenant News ~ March 20, 2010


“From right to left, secular to God-fearing, what so few people know is that in the last half century, United States administrations have overthrown 50 governments — many of them democracies. In the process, thirty countries have been attacked and bombed, with the loss of countless lives. Bush bashing is all very well — and is justified — but the moment we begin to accept the siren call of the Democrat’s drivel about standing up and fighting for freedom sought by billions, the battle for history is lost, and we ourselves are silenced”. John Pilger

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is concerned about domestic terrorists (that's me and you folks)and her potential targets are making a hero of Texas suicide pilot Joe Stack who crashed his private plane into an Internal Revenue office. There is a resentment tsunami rising in America that threatens the established terra firma.

It is a complex dilemma. The two puppet political parties are still sources of intense interest even for individuals who should know better. The media promotes their significance through constant publicity. Ron Paul is a hero for his straightforward approach to political issues and his sensible solutions, but he remains in the Republican Party and that organization will never allow his ascent.

Propaganda in United States would have Joseph Goebbels dancing in the street. Every television show is hosted by a person who wears a small American Flag, who has accepted the legitimacy of 9/11 attacks, and who depicts our government as righteous and the war as just. Our political leaders have the same mindset. No one ever publically questions the legitimacy of the government’s propaganda. Entertainment is not immune. Exciting, well written, popular Fox Network television show “24” starring Kiefer Southerland exalts humanism, cruelty, torture, and question-less devotion to the government. Torture is standard procedure in every interrogation and with the exception of the Counter Terrorist Unit’s inhuman agents, who are impervious, it is usually successful. Of the three United States Presidents involved in the story the Black president and the Female president are moral, the White president is a scoundrel. Patriot groups are terrorists. Many viewers fail to see through these insidious distortions.

The destruction of our wealth and power has been going on for several decades. The textile industry was one of the first to go. From New England it moved South and from the South it moved overseas. Now it is hard to find a set of durable bed sheets of the quality Americans used to produce. Over fifty years ago, in 1957, Toyota and Datsun shipped the first Japanese cars into the United States. This incursion by Japanese manufacturers forced domestic producers into a distorted competition and slowly eroded the auto industry’s upper middle class jobs. During these years the electronics industry also succumbed to the Japanese. Little by little American television manufacturers, RCA, General Electric, Philco, Raytheon, Hallicrafters, Hoffman, and Pacific Mercury (Remember those names?) bowed. In 1977 President Jimmy Carter divested our nation of the Panama Canal ceding hegemony over a project that cost millions of dollars and the lives of 21,000 workers. The Clinton Administration brought us NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, and the WTO. These treasonous treaties opened American markets to unprecedented exploitation. First is was Japan and now in little more than a decade China has become bloated with U. S. dollars. In a recent column Pat Buchanan wrote that since the year 2000 we have lost 5.7 million manufacturing jobs, one-third of the entire manufacturing sector. The exact figures are difficult to find but it is apparent that the standard of living in United States has been purposely decimated.

When George W. Bush was appointed president in 2000 his visit with Mexican President Vincente Fox was closely followed by hoards of illegal Mexican border crossings. Western societies around the world are being challenged by immigrants that seek equality and more. In a couple of decades United States Christian European society will be no more.

News, literature, art, and entertainment are controlled by a tightly knit, mostly Jewish group. It was far better for the consumer when the motion picture writers were on strike. The material they produce is not only vile, sadistic, and pornographic but bereft of a story line, tedious, and prosaic. Movie after movie abruptly terminates leaving the audience wondering if Hollywood has lost all its storytellers. Drugs, violence, fornication, adultery, sodomy, murder, robbery, rape, torture, and tyranny infest the bulk of Hollywood’s products. (this is the jew mindset, evil)

In a 2007 lecture in Chicago John Pilger, an experienced Australian Journalist, talked about the failures of the United States press corps. He is a Socialist and the setting was Socialistic but the lecture contained truths that are seldom expressed. Fascism, Communism, and Socialism are abhorrent systems of government but the radicals that support these aberrations sometimes carefully chronicle the failures of our present system and are sources of truth others fail to discern. This truth teeters on an unsteady platform but while the platform is deplorable the truth, as always, is precious.

Pilger describes the advent of corporate advertising and the creation of the “Professional Journalist”. He details the institutionalization of journalism which then began using “official sources” to back up stories. He says “a mythology of liberal neutrality was spun around the professional journalist” which engendered a system that is “entirely bogus”. Pilger informs us there were 50 corporate owners of the media in 1983, in 2002 only nine, and more recently only five. Rupert Murdock (Fox News and a host of others.) predicts it will soon be reduced to three. Pilger writes that studies have determined that the BBC provided only two percent of its coverage to Iraq War detractors while reserving the bulk of its space for correspondents, like those in Washington, who described American intentions as being rooted in “democracy and grass roots development”. He reveals the never reported U. S. support for Pol Pot in Cambodia, notes the contrived propaganda that has always been directed at the Palestinians and, maintains that though the press hammered away at the Vietnam War the situation was far worse than the media reported. “There were 649 reporters in Vietnam on March 16, 1968 — the day that the My-Lai massacre happened — and not one of them reported it.” With sharp insight he writes “One of the oldest clichés of war is that truth is the first casualty. No it’s not. Journalism is the first casualty.”

We gave away the Panama Canal; we gave away access to our markets; our government began to allow mergers and buyouts that consolidated industries and created fewer and fewer larger and larger corporations; we allowed, even encouraged, these international corporations that had been spawned in the United States to become international entities with no obligation to the nation or the people that built them. Our government made it easy for corporations to move manufacturing operations out of the country and the attraction of lower taxes and fewer hampering legal codes provided an additional strong incentive.

The Bush II Administration used the 9/11 disaster as a reason for beginning an open-ended military offensive in the Middle East against an obscure enemy called “Terrorism”. A massive propaganda campaign designed to create a phantom threat was successful enough to force our legislators to pass laws that encroach on our freedoms and nullify our Constitution. While our government tells us we are fighting in the Middle East for our freedom they are busy passing laws that create tyranny. The Middle East offensive is not approaching a decade in duration at a disastrous cost in money, reputation, and liberty. Our elected officials lured by financial incentives and cowed by a compliant press are too timid to question the authenticity of the policies of the Executive Branch so everyone is acting as if the facts are as they have been presented by our Neo-Con taskmasters. We are living in a sea of contrived mendacity.

Our citizens are complicit in this disaster. In George Orwell’s “1984” Winston writes in his diary that “He knows that if once the “proles” rose up in rebellion, the Party could not survive. But the ‘proles’ seemed incapable of organizing themselves into any concrete entity. All their immense energy was dissipated in trivial grievances; they had no concern to expend on larger issues. The Party itself did not interfere too much with the ‘proles’; they were ‘below suspicion’. So long as they were willing to breed and labor they were left largely to their own devices. According to the Party ‘Proles’ and animals are free.” The United States has a large segment of potential “Proles” who are not yet restrained by absolute tyranny. They support the war effort and believe that the United States is a lily white entity that deserves to rule the world. They support our armed forces and pray for victory in foreign battles. They hate Arabs and believe Iran is our enemy. Civilian residents of other nations who seek to maintain their independence are expendable and bloody campaigns like the North waged in the Civil War, Dresden in WW II, Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, the Korean War and the War in Iraq are celebrated with cheers. Defeats and disasters are always blamed on the other political party and they work hard to unseat it in the next election. When they should be repenting for their monstrous sins they are ebullient with pride and the expectation that the next election will solve all of their problems.

The problems facing the world today will not be solved through politics. We have been disobedient to the Creator and disobedience must be repented from. This is God’s decree: What is yours?

“Now it shall be, if you will diligently obey the Lord your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey the Lord your God: ‘Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Blessed shall you be when you go in and blessed shall you be when you go out. The Lord will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they shall come out against you one way and shall flee before you seven ways. The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you. The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you will keep the commandment of the Lord your God, and walk in His ways. So all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of you. And the Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and the produce of your ground, in the land which the Lord swore to you fathers to give to you. The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And the Lord shall make you the head and not the tail, and you only shall be above, and you shall not be underneath, if you will listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully, and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right of the left, to go after other gods to serve them.’” --Deuteronomy 28:1-14

If peace and prosperity is ever to return to our world, Christians must understand that God’s primary requirement is obedience. When we ignore His Law and devise our own law we disobey Him. He requires “careful” obedience. When the people obey and their government obeys the nation is blessed; when the people obey but the government disobeys, the nation is judged; when the nation obeys and the people disobey; the nation is judged. Today, neither the people nor their governments regard God’s Ordnances!

Entrance into a contemporary promised land will involve resisting some giants. The forces seeking world domination are in control of the money, they control the media, and they control the military of the world’s most powerful nation. “Proles” must understand that the only remedy for globalism involves God’s dominion over His creation. As long as God’s people are willing to allow evil humanist laws to rule us victory will be evasive. If we continue to allow them to control our money, our medical care, our peace, and our freedom the battle is lost. But if we repent of our evil ways, read God’s Law, agree to obey His Commandments, fearlessly face the evil powers of darkness, and proclaim God’s right to dominion, He will defeat our enemies and the battle can be won.

Long article to comment on as there is a whole lotta good relevant stuff there.
Reckon I'm not the only reader who gets riled with the majorities mindset of Amerika being portrayed as
"lily white, do no wrong" also. The spell casters in the media, churches, and government have really done a number on them. But don't they just love their patriotic (hypocritical) songs.

Government is a god to them and god can do no wrong - at least as long as they can keep swilling and devouring their delicacies in a make believe world. Smoke, mirrors 'n shiny trinklets to keep the sheeple happy,fat and ill informed - but to them it's all good.

Some folks may wonder - we want the same things you Christians want .. I don't see the difference. This may be so to some extent but the greater realization is in the fact that it makes all the difference to God.

And therein lies the key to success .. do we put Him first or do we think to keep that "option" open for some future "maybe" use and shelf Him to such a time we get ready to "give Him a go" ?

Will He forever allow this rebuffing of His good will and mercy ? Myself, I never was a gambling man. Either He will be first and foremost or we're heading off the cliff pedal to the metal.

Great post.
