Where Friedman Made a Mistake in Regards to Free Markets

Milton Friedman was a brillant economist, well-read and informed academic.

He brought forth a number of incredible, essential arguments to defend free enterprise and domestic economic liberty for businesses large and small. Don't get me wrong--I am all for free enterprise. Domestic economic freedom is an absolute must in any country, so that individuals can enjoy the highest standard of living possible.

BUT ... there is a place for government intervention in a number of issues.

1. Tariffs play an important role in securing the national security and interest of a country.

2. Illegal immigration and mass immigration are a bane for any country. No group of people, no mass movement of people should be permitted to overrun a country and complete change the contour and constitutional character of the nation.

This video exposes what the problem became for Milton Friedman's free market views--and Friedman himself admitted to the failure of one of his many tenets.

Check out this video from Reason Magazine here.

Friedman was convinced that the people of Hong Kong, China, elsewhere would rise up and oppose the taxpayer-funded subsidies for national businesses.

However, that never happened. Authoritarian regimes do not listen to the people whom they are supposed to care for. They do what they want. subsidize whatever businesses and interests they please. The pro-tariff arguments are stronger in these cases. Granted, tariffs can amount to a tax, but that only occurs if individuals purchase the goods from the other countries.

If authoritarian countries are subsidizing their goods and dumping them into other nations to undercut their industries, tariffs have to be imposed.

Friedman's argument in "Free to Choose" was not satisfactory for dealing with this problem. If a country lowers its tariffs in the face of countries with cheaper goods based on nationalized policies of currency manipulation and subsidies, the businesses in our country will fail and falter.

This problem occurs in Sub-Saharan countries, as well, in which Western nations offer a bunch of goods as "charity." For example, many countries will send in a bunch of free shoes to help an impoverished area. What happens, though? The local merchants go out of business, because they cannot compete with free."

Hence, the need for tariffs. The same idea is pervasive around the world. The United States was right to enact key tariffs to protect local industries against predatory policies from other countries. Open borders and open international markets can become problematic when these concerns are not taken into account.

Breaking Their Will: The Confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett

 The nomination and confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett has broken the will of the regressive left.

There is nothing they can do to stop this confirmation. Nothing.

The View announced in very sober, quiet tones that they had already lost this fight.

Here are two videos of their capitulation:

Click here.

Also click here.

In the two videos above, the somber state of the four cackling, leftwing witches is all gone. They are quiet, they are calm, they are defeated--and it is glorious!

Even Joy Behar acknowledged "We have lost the battle."

It was really something, to see those five cackling hens concede that they had lost the Supreme Court. They realized that the battle is over.

Check out this video from earlier on:

"Since Democrats can't really do anything to stop this ..."

The Republican Party in the US Senate won. They pushed through an unprecedented slate of federal judges, an array of judicial officers who can strike down Joe Biden's unlawful, unconstitutional executive orders.

Republicans need to learn from this victory. They have to push for total wins now. It's no longer about compromise. It's about winning! It's about fighting for the Republic of the United States, for the United States Constitution, for everything that our Founders fought for.

Republicans need to learn to break the will of Democrats, so that they stop fighting. They need to understand that Republicans, that conservatives, that everyday citizens are not going to sit back and let Democrats destroy this wonderful country.

How Milo Got Beaten

Milo Yiannopoulos was a well-established conservative provocateur, writer, journalist, speaker, and all the rest. His light was shining brightly in 2016 because of Trump's ascendancy as a candidate for the GOP nomination in 2016.

Milo had made such a name for himself, visiting college campuses, crashing the smug progressive stuffiness of universities and corporate media, and going after political correctness with a strong assiduousness that was indeed quite refreshing. He drove liberals crazy, and he was well-received among conservative groups, particularly College Republicans.

He was a real bane, a force to be reckoned with, and like a preening peacock who knew he could have what he wanted, he was very brazen, blunt, and arrogant about how highly he esteemed himself.

In 2016, Milo Yiannopoulos wrote

One of the most unusual things about my success is that my critics are often the drivers of my good fortune. The progressive Left’s attempts to beat me resemble a man standing in a bucket trying to lift himself up by the handle, as the old saying goes.

They don’t realize what a Herculean task it would be to defeat me. In fact, if the thirteenth Labour of Hercules after defeating Cerberus was “Get Milo to Shut Up” he probably would have failed miserably. Incidentally, I think I met Cerberus last night in an L.A nightclub and yes, the teeth were a problem.

In 2017, this happened:

AfterComments On Pedophilia, Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns

What were those comments, which led to his speaking engagements getting canceled, his book deal getting cut off, and ultimately his untimely resignation from Breitbart News?

Here his comments in transcript:

We’re talking about 13-25, 13-28 [sexual relationships], these things do happen, perfectly consensually. Often it’s the women who suffer in these, because normally what happens in schools, every often, is it’s an older woman with a younger boy, and the boy is the predator in that situation. They boy is like, “Let’s see if I can f—ck the gym teacher. Let’s see if I can f—ck the hot math teacher,” and he does.

These women fall in love with these nubile young men, athletic young boys in their prime, and end up having their lives destroyed. They end up having to move schools, leave the country, whatever.

The point about all this stuff, is that we get all hung up on abuse. This is a controversial view. I accept. We get hung up on this sort of child abuse stuff, to the point where we’re heavily policing relationships even between consenting adults, grad students and professors at  universities. This arbitrary and oppressive idea of consent, which totally destroys the understanding that many of us have, the complexities and subtleties and complicated nature of many relationships. You know, people are messy and complex, and in the homosexual world particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of “coming of age” relationships, those relations in which those older men help those  younger boys  discover who they are, and give them security and safety, and provide them with love and a reliable sort of rock where they can’t speak with their parents.

At this point, the host of the podcast interrupted:

“Sounds like Catholic priest molestation to me.”

Yiannopoulos responded, “I’m grateful for Father Michael. I wouldn’t give nearly such good head if it wasn’t for him.”

Guess what? It is molestation. It is child abuse.

Someone found this disturbing segment from Milo, and he could not spin it. He could not make the argument that what he shared was sloppily or inartfully phrased. He could not make the cased that he did not know fully what he was saying. He clearly stated "This is a controversial view. I accept." 

He knew that what he was sharing was going to shock his hearers. 

And it is shocking, regardless of context. There is no indication that what Milo shared was in gest, or was some kind of joke or form of sarcasm. Even if it were, it's not funny. It's downright disturbing.

The argument that a 13-year-old is a predator who hits on a 25 year-old-teacher is beyond ludicrous, as well.

This revelation was enough to take down Milo. The powers that be beat him.

How did they beat him, ultimately?

Le'ts consider the tips that Milo had given to his opponents. Here's the list of pointers from his above article:

1) Don’t act like a rabid animal

2) Do your homework

3) Stump me in the Q&A, not during my speech

4) Whichever side resorts to violence, intimidation or aggression, loses

5) Your University’s reputation is in your hands. Remember that  

Milo erroneously assumed that the battleground would be on the college campuses, and it would take place among rabid leftists who wanted to push their perverted, failed, regressive ideas.

He was mistaken here. Milo was masterful in the college campus crowds. He thrived on the conflict and the contentious which mindless radical leftists would hurl at him on a college campus.

The field of battle where he would lose would be on social media, and the moment in which someone would catch something that he said that would be offensive ... to the right, to conservatives.

Milo claimed to be all about liberty, about cultural libertarianism. He also gave himself off as some kind of eccentric conservative figure of sorts. He pushed a number of traditional, nationalist, and populist leaning ideas.

But there was one sticking problem with allowing Milo to play in the fields of the conservative populist right: he was openly gay, proud of it, and he insisted on making it OK, when it was not OK, and then making the point that people are not born gay, but then again it was OK that he is gay. 

Do you see the confusion?

It's worth pointing out that conservatives have gotten pretty weak when standing up to this normalization of homosexuality among certain so-called right-leaning activists and writers. This is a problem, and part of it comes out because people who struggle with same-sex temptations have emotional and mental health issues.

Milo clearly does, since he was abused by a priest, and he talked about it with some pretty garish, dark humor. The glorification of his homosexual conduct and lifestyle brought down Milo, and his detractors took full advantage of that fact by pointing out how he was defending illicit relationships between adults and minors.

This is a rampant problem among homosexuals. Many of them were molested as youth by older boys or men. And this abusive cycle, tragically, repeats itself.

So, how did Milo get beaten? By himself, ultimately.

He said things on social media relating to his homosexual conduct, which aroused outrage and disgust, although conservative activists should have been outraged at the outset with Milo because he was flaunting his gayness and trying to push this agenda to normalize the destructive conduct and ideology in the conservative movement.

He was arrogant, as well, borne out by the title of the above referenced article "How to Beat Me (Spoiler: You Won’t)". Yes, indeed, he got beat. He was forced to step down from Breitbart News as a key editor. His media presence collapsed. People did not want him for speaking engagements anymore. He ended up selling his website, too. And that was it.

Young People Are Rightly Angry, But For the Wrong Reasons

 Young people are raging in the streets.

They see inequality all around them, and they have been told for years that if they work hard, study hard, that they can be just are rich and well-off as the guys next to them. If they follow a certain formula, then they can be as rich and well-connected as Elon Musk or Kanye West.

They see the growing inequities (from their point of view), they see the lost opportunities, and they feel cheated.

You know what? They have a point.

Telling young people that the way to freedom, fortune, and financial success is through their own hard work has left out one of the most important, if not the most important element:


Kanye West may not know it (yet), and Elon Musk may not care. Mark Zuckerberg may not even believe in God for all I know, and for the time being he certainly does not believe in Grace and Truth personified, named Jesus Christ ...

But they all received God's favor in some fashion, and allowed His favor to flow in their lives. Does this sound unreasonable? Does this sound un-Biblical? Consider what Jesus said on the Sermon on the Mount:

"That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:45)

Consider even what the Preacher shared:

"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all." (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

Good things happen to people who are in the right place at the right time. That's also very much based on and depends on God's favor. Wealthy people, accomplished actors, successful businessmen all took advantage of a situation--right place, right time--to get where they are. It was not their skills, their smarts, but God's goodness.

We need God, we need the grace of God to be successful. It's not luck, chance, or fortune, but many of the world's wealthiest people took advantage of the grace of God by allowing His supernatural power to flow in their lives. They were not trying to be obedience to laws, since for everyone person who is under law, that person ends up under the curse (Galatians 3:10)

God's favor is freely falling on the whole world. His sun-shining Love and His free-falling grace is coming upon the whole world. 

Yet the corporate, academic, man-centered, bureaucratic world has taught people that they need to follow rules, fit in, do what they are told in order to succeed.


So many young people have been told that there is one key track for success in life, and that track goes right through college. I went to college, and I even went through a graduate training program to get a teaching credential. Yet the work, the career, the calling that I have been following has nothing to do with my credential or my majors in college.

Today, there are millions of young people who have graduated, who have lots of debt, who were told that they can study just about any subject and they would be on a fast-track to a good-paying job. They were also told that by fighting for a good career, and trying to start a good family, that they would have everything the defines success.

Yet we do not find good success in the world or through our man-centered, self-centered self-efforts. Just read the first nine chapters of Ecclesiastes, and listen to the moanings and wailings of a man who had literally everything, and found it to be nothing but vanity.

What does give us good success?

"The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it." (Proverbs 10:22)


"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." (Joshua 1:8)

and of course:

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 2)

God is interested above all in our soul prosperity, for without the prosperity within, there is no value in any prosperity without:

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36)

God wants us to prosper, but we have to allow Him to prosper us on the inside.

And that happens when we walk in the truth:

"3For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. 4I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth." (3 John 3-4)

How do we walk in the truth? We believe the Gospel of Grace (Galatians 1:6), that we believe that we have been justified from all things that we cannot be justified by through the law of Moses (Acts 13:38-39)

So, yes, indeed, young people are understandably angry, in that they have been taught that relying fully, solely, exceptionally on their efforts will all but ensure them the success that they were promised in this life.

But that success can only come by faith in Christ. There is no other way. There is no relying exclusively on one's own smarts, one's own habits. It takes the proper connection of time and chance, or happenings that happen, as the original Hebrew bears out in the book of Ecclesiastes.

Young people should not start blaming "the rich" for their problems, simply because they think that "the rich" had all the breaks while they are going broke. In fact, if more people were wiling to walk with some degree of wisdom, they would have fewer problems at the outset. God's wisdom is free, and freely available to entreat:

"But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy." (James 3:17)

God does not shame anyone for asking for His wisdom, either:

"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." (James 1:5)

Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett CONFIRMED


The White House • October 26, 2020

BREAKING: Senate Confirms Amy Coney Barrett

After a unanimous vote by the Judiciary Committee last week, the Senate just confirmed Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett to become the 115th Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
“Having confirmed her to the Circuit Court in 2017 with bipartisan support, the Senate has already undertaken a thorough and rigorous review of her record,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said after President Trump made the nomination last month.
Throughout Justice Barrett’s career, she has faithfully upheld the U.S. Constitution as written. The American Bar Association gave Barrett its highest rating, and she has an impressive track record across the legal profession—as a judge, professor, and litigator.
Most important, she will bring a valuable new perspective to our nation’s High Court:
  • Justice Barrett is the first mother of school-aged children to become a Supreme Court Justice. She is also only the fifth woman ever to serve.
  • As the mother of a child with special needs, she understands the issues and concerns confronting our nation’s most vulnerable people.
  • Justice Barrett is the only current justice to have a law degree from a school other than Harvard or Yale. She graduated at the top of her class from Notre Dame Law School in Indiana.
Justice Barrett has made her philosophy clear: She will not legislate from the bench. “Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society, but courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life,” she said during her confirmation hearings.
“The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches, elected by and accountable to the people,” she added.
One letter—written by Justice Barrett’s former law clerks—calls her approach principled and independent-minded. “Judge Barrett taught us that a good judge will not always like the results she reaches; a good judge goes wherever the law leads,” it says.
Justice Barrett is the very model of a sympathetic yet impartial judge, according to her colleagues at Notre Dame Law School. She is exactly the type of person whom the American people deserve to have sitting on their Supreme Court.
“If we are to protect our institutions, and protect the freedoms, and protect the rule of law that’s the basis for the society and the freedom that we all enjoy—if we want that for our children and our children’s children—then we need to participate in that work,” Justice Barrett said.

The Answer to "They Will Say Mean Things About Me": Righteousness

I get that people are afraid of being put to shame. I understand that people do not want other people maligning them on social media or saying bad things about them so that they lose their jobs.

I get all that.

However, at some point we need to start trusting the grace of God, and we need to start taking God at His promises rather than running away from the premises of the truth.

Consider this glorious promise which God gives to His righteous saints:

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." (Isaiah 54:17)

The question I have to pose to many people in the Body of Christ, and activists around the country, around the world: Do you believe this promise? Do you believe that the LORD will ensure that every evil word people raise against you will fall flat, will come to nothing? Do you believe that you will stand firm while the hateful whiles of the Enemy and his minions fall to nothing?

Sadly, I have encountered so many activists who remain quite scared of being maligned, of people saying meaning things about them om social media or in private places. It's really quite a shame.

Then again, it's not good enough for me to shame people for ... being ashamed and fearing the reproach of men. What is needed is more of the ministry of righteousness!

"9For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 10For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth." (2 Corinthians 3:9-10)

When we are established in righteousness, God's righteousness, the gift of righteousness (Romans 5:17), the new and glorious identity of righteousness in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21). we reign in life and we overcome the wiles, hatred, and abject reproach of evil men. This is the way to overcome, this is the way to live life, and this is the way to fight back against evil in all sorts of places.

Consider the victorious disregard of the Apostles when they were first arrested for preaching the Good News:

"And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name." (Acts 5:41)

They actually celebrated that they could suffer for the name of Jesus!

Paul adds in his Second Letter to the Corinthians:

"Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong." (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

The Body of Christ, men and women of faith need a growing revelation of God's love, grace, and protection in their lives. To receive this, they need to understand their perfect standing of righteousness in Christ before God the Father. When we know that we have the favor of our Heavenly Father, then we stop carring whether people will say mean things about us.

MassResistance Taking on Black Lives Matter


The Black Lives Matter assault in the nation’s schools is bigger and more intrusive than people realize. Along with that is a new wave of radical LGBT indoctrination.

Well-funded BLM working closely with LGBT movement already in the schools.

Activist teachers say: Parents should have no say in this!

See our multi-part series exposing it in detail!

October 23, 2020
ALT TEXT Most parents are completely unaware that this is being taught to schoolchildren across America - even in academic subjects such as English and math.

Right now, many people are focused on national politics, the elections, the banning of conservative thought, and the fear of more violence and destruction to come from Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa. But anyone who cares about the nation’s longer-term future needs to pay attention to the horrible transformation going on in the nation’s schools. It is on a scale that we have never seen before.

A flood of Black Lives Matter curriculum material – specifically tailored for various grade levels – is now showing up in public (and some private) schools across the US. Children are hit with insidious Marxist messages including:

  • America is a very bad place.
  • Police are racist and violent.
  • White people are naturally bigoted and have unfair privilege.
  • All black people are morally superior.
  • The traditional family structure is archaic.

The obvious purpose is to divide people, not bring them together.

But that’s not all. Two of the three founders of BLM are “out” lesbians, and “from the start Black Lives Matter has been about LGBTQ lives.” So along with the Marxist ideology – often mixed together – comes a new radical wave of LGBT indoctrination in the schools. From what we’ve seen, it is even more psychologically aggressive than before.

ALT TEXT A Black Lives Matter poster being used in the New York City school system mingles issues of race, 'queer' and transgender identities, diversity, and globalism.

A relatively sudden surge into the schools

As our readers know, for many years MassResistance has been successfully helping parents fight back against the LGBT agenda targeting their children in their schools.

Earlier this year, MassResisance activists around the country began confronting local BLM groups that were targeting their communities with their aggressive Marxist, anti-police, and racist demands. Much of this was centered around de-funding the police and pushing Marxist policies into city government.

When the new school year began back in August classes were conducted via Zoom because of COVID-19. Parents at home began noticing extremely offensive BLM lessons being pushed on students in supposedly academic settings such as English and math classes. It was frightening and very upsetting. MassResistance has helped some parents confront the school officials and get it stopped.

This has all been shockingly sudden. Last year there was almost no BLM material being taught that we could identify. But now we’re seeing that it’s a much larger problem than we could ever imagine. The sheer amount of material and the methodical way it’s being presented to children makes it obvious that the preparation for this has been going on for some time.

Where is this coming from?

This assault on children is being funded by Corporate America. The amount of money is staggering. Two years ago the National Football League announced a $90 million donation to Black Lives Matter and its “social justice” front groups, which was later upped to $250 million. This has been joined by Apple, Amazon, Walmart, and Google, Bank of America and many others. (See sample lists of funders here and here.)  The total by now has easily reached a billion dollars.

A substantial amount of this money goes to “educating” the nation’s schoolchildren. They have been able to create their extensive course materials and the methodologies for pushing it most effectively on children.

ALT TEXT Part of the "white privilege" propaganda in Middle Schools.

It’s moving so fast because the Black Lives Matter organization is working closely with the LGBT movement which infiltrated the schools over the past several decades – as well as the political entities that run them and universities that influence them. As a result, most of this new material is coming from the state or city level – and being pushed into the individual schools.

Teachers have also been put through indoctrination “teacher training,” much like the LGBT training that HRC and its “Welcoming Schools” have given them in years past (which is also pushed from the government entities).

ALT TEXT This Black Lives Matter teacher presentation in Buffalo, NY describes the various indoctrination sessions that the city's teachers - and even some parents - will be going through.

BLM is also working with other left-wing extremist groups already in the schools, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and its so-called “Teaching Tolerance” curriculum.

Disturbing focus on Elementary and Middle School students

From what we are seeing, they are focusing particularly intensely on the Elementary and Middle School grades. They have a definite – and quite frightening - obsession in molding children’s minds as early as possible.

ALT TEXT From a Black Lives Matter coloring book for elementary school children.

This, unfortunately, is not a new concept among totalitarian movements. It’s something that we need to pay attention to.


Militant attitude of teachers

One very disturbing thing that we’ve found in both writings and even video clips that we’ve come across is the extreme militant attitude of teachers.

In one video of a training session, teachers explain that parents don’t have a right to decide what their children learn – because the teachers are the ones who know best. And children need to be protected from parents’ bigotry.

A popular slogan is “Freedom to read.” They unabashedly say that young children have the “freedom” to read pornography, or children’s books promoting homosexuality or witchcraft, or any subject the teacher may choose.

Keeping parents in the dark is a goal. And in fact, most people have no idea what’s happening. But sometimes parents find out. So there are training sessions on dealing with pushback from parents - particularly “bigoted conservative religious” parents. They teach the teachers how to give such parents misinformation and confuse them to a point where they don’t oppose the material.

Can this be stopped?

Yes, we believe it can be stopped – school by school. None of this can be defended by the schools – if parents are educated and equipped to properly confront it. Because it is virtually all based on lies and discredited Marxist ideology, it is surprisingly easy to tear down.

The education establishment is used to intimidating and steamrolling parents and community members who are frightened and unsophisticated. But our experience has been that they cannot effectively deal with people who are aggressive and well equipped with the facts.

There are numerous strategies at our disposal – including demands that the ringleaders pushing this on children be fired – which we’ve successfully used.

(The only thing limiting us right now is the funding to manage a larger-scale operation. Conservative donors are historically reticent to be confrontational. But we’re working on that.)

Coming up: A series of exposés!

Over the last few months we have gathered a large amount of the new Black Lives Matter and LGBT material being pushed in the nation’s schools. Most of this has come from teachers (and even principals) who have been outraged – and reached out to us. It even includes some videos of secret teacher training sessions.

It’s far too much to post in just one article. So over the next several weeks we will be publishing a series of detailed reports. Our goal is for people to know what’s really happening in their schools – and hopefully get prepared to take action!

Why the Cowardice? No Revelation of Divine Righteousness

 In a previous post, I asked a profound, uncomfortable question:

"Why the cowardice?"

People are afraid to speak out about issues that they are concerned about. They are afraid of being labeled racist, even though government policies, from the schools to the city councils, are doing untold damage to others.

Tucker Carlson urged his viewers to stand up to the left-wing mob which is bullying everyone into silence. Yet, there are so few people, it seems, who are willing to speak up. This is especially troubling, as we see this cowardice prevalent among our elected leaders.

Our elected officials should be demonstrating some sort of courage in the face of the outrage, protest, cancel culture. And yet, all too many of them are simply cutting and running from challenges.

What's going on? Why the cowardice?

Well, what does God's Word have to say? Where do we get boldness? How do we get bold, strong, courageous?

"The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion." (Proverbs 28:1)

What makes people bold? Righteousness!

Yet righteousness is talked about so little in our ... churches! It's a subject which is constantly missing.

Righteousness means that we are declared right, and the righteousness that we need comes from God!

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." (Isaiah 54:17)

We need God's righteousness, not our own. 

"But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." (Isaiah 64:6)

Wow! Our righteousnesses, not just one act but many acts, are dirty, smelly, awful. They actually creat a bigger mess. The more that we try to make ourselves righteous, in good standing before God, the more unrighteous we reveal ourselves to be!

Consider this passage, in which Paul laments the state of his Jewish brethren who do not believe on Jesus (yet), but I submit to you that there are many people in the Body of Christ who are still trying to maintain their righteousness, and through their own efforts:

"3For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 4For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." (Romans 10:3-4)

We need to submit to the righteousness of God. We need to be knowledgeable, not ignorant of His righteousness.

If we study God's Word, and we believe in Jesus, we discover that indeed we are not just righteous before God, but ...

"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)


In fact, this righteousness is something that Jesus gives us, and that we receive--and keep receiving!

"For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:17)

The Young's Literal Translation brings our opportunity:

"[F]or if by the offence of the one the death did reign through the one, much more those, who the abundance of the grace and of the free gift of the righteousness are receiving [emphasis mine], in life shall reign through the one -- Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:17, Youngs)

People in the United States, and particularly the churches, do not have courage in the face of the cultural malaise and tyrannical onslaughts on our streets because they do not have the revelation of God's rightoeusness.

This makes sense, considering this passage, too:

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." (Isaiah 41:10)

What takes away our fear? We know that the LORD is holding us up with his right hand, and with HIS righteousness!

With the revelation of His righteousness, we have these promises:

"14In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee." (Isaiah 54:14)

1. You will be established, unmoved, unshakable.

2. You will be far from oppression (political tyranny)

3. You will not fear.

4. Terror, menace will be far from you.

These are great promises which kick in once we recognize and receive the full revelation of our righteousness in Christ.

And there's more:

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." (Isaiah 54:17)

5. Every weapon formed against you will fail.

6. You will condemn every person, every tongue that speaks out against you.

7. You receive an inheritance from the LORD.

It is a real shame that the twin gifts of grace and righteousness are not abundantly preached in Ameica's churches today. There is hardly any preaching about Christ Jesus Himself!

This is why cowardice has become all too commonplace in our times.

We need to get back to the Gospel, the rich fulness of the Good News as revealed to Paul, who shared in Pisidian Antioch:

"38Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses." (Acts 13:38-39)

Through Jesus we receive the forgiveness of sins--of all our sins past, present, and future--arnd we are justified from all things, and this justification is imparted to us apart from the law of Moses, the Ten Commandments.

It's no longer about our keeping the rules. It is all about the Ruler keeping us!

When we preach and promote the righteousess of God in Christ, the cowardice of mankind in this world, in our countries, will fall away.

Why the Cowardice?

For the past two years, I have been not just an activist, but an organization director.

It has been my job to coalesce and organize people to fight back against LGBT perversion in all of its forms.

When it comes to activism, I am not just interested in fighting battles here and there. I want to start a cultural revolution, or better yet restoration, just like the American colonists on the eve of the American Revolution.

For the past two years, though, I have run into so many struggles. I have found it very difficult to motivate people to stick with fighting the specific LGBT issues that need to be confronted.

The best group that I worked with formed, besides a great team in Nebraska , was the MassResistance chapter in San Diego. People from all walks of life, working within different church groups, were ready to work together and take on Drag Queen Story Hour at the Chula Vista Main Library, for example. They continued railing against the city council long after the event had ended. But even then, the energy, the times, the demands of other responsibilities took over for so many people.

But forming the chapters was one thing. Ensuring that the chapters were self-sustaining and growing--that was the real goal, the real challenge, and ultimately a real problem.

I found that there were parents across the country who wanted to stand up to this LGBT nonsense in their schools, in their local communities.

However, when crunch time came, many of them would dissipate and walk away.

It was very frustrating.

I wanted to help form these armies, and I found that after finding a few faithful people, who were willing to be leaders in their states, I was getting really rundown.

I was getting tired. I did not look forward to doing the work. I was getting burned out.

More on the burnout issues later ...

For now, I am focusing on the bigger questions.

First, why are so many people just tripping over themselves to celebrate LGBT issues? Why are so many people determined to march in lock-stop with this Black Lives Matter insanity? In El Segundo, CA, for example, all of these parents were actually taking their children to Drag Queen Story Hour. They were proud to be letting their children get groomed by a pervert. What is the matter with these people?

Then you have rich liberals, from the early days of the Communist Revolution in Russia to the present day in Los Angeles, who trip over themselves to donate money and support these destructive, anti-Western, anti-Christian, anti-American causes. What is it with their self-loathing?

For some answers, without realizing that there were answers to receive, I found a video from Victor Davis Hanson. In this recording, he talked about the major criticisms against The West, against Western Culture.

The first critique shared by many is that there is inequality. If people are fundamentally the same, how come there are so many different outcomes for people? Why are some people poor, and some people rich? Why do certain groups and countries do better? This is wrong, to some people, and a major problem with Western Culture.

This criticism has become quite common among the radical progressive rioters who are destroying cities and doing great damage across the country. The Black Lives Matter hate group believes that they have a right to other people's territory. They have a right to steal from others, because "black people" worked for everything, and "white people" took everything. The inequity argument is striking.

But so many white people believe this nonsense. There are lots of wealthy homeowners in El Segundo, for example. They feel guilty about all the worth and well-being that they possess, and as a result they feel guilty. Instead of thinking deeply on the issues, like why are so many black people in jails, or why there are so many homicides in black communities, they just throw everything up to institutional racism, and then go around with signs and start demanding justice in any way possible.

Of course, they don't really want justice. They just want to prove to everyone that they are better than others. It's really another form of white supremacy, in that they think that black people are incompetent, and that they need extra help and propping up from "the white people" to do better. This self-loathing self-righteousness is destructive, fraudulent, and evil.

But the question remains: why do so many people feel guilty?

Then there are the people of all backgrounds who want to speak up, but they fear the reproach of others. They are so worried about being shamed, they fear that their reputations will be slandered online. They also fear losing their jobs, their homes, perhaps even their lives.

Tucker Carlson called out this cowardice among our political leaders. He was shocked, disgusted that Republican lawmakers in Washington, DC were refusing to take a firm stance against all the racialized hatred and revolutionary disorder. Carlson mocked our elected leaders for going along with the whole "I'm sorry! Please forgive me!" passivism.

But why is this happening?

Why are so many people so craven now? People are not standing up to cancel culture. They are not taking a stand for this country. It's almost as though they believe all the lies being told about the United States, that this country is inherently racist, and it's been essential unfair from the outset. What is going on here? Why the cowardice?

The Fall of Europe: The Post-Modern Contradictions of Douglas Murray

 Douglas Murray is a conservative. He talks about conserving culture, promoting free enterprise, a robust foreign policy which ensures the hegemony and pre-emince of Western values around the world.

He is also openly gay.

He also calls himself an atheist.

In fact, he has styled himself a "Christian atheist".

Such a phrase is not just absolute nonsense, but an outright oxymoron.

He supports so-called Christian culture, but he is not a Christian himself.

His conflict of identity exposes the crisis of Europe in particular, and the Western World in general.

People want the trappings, the benefits, the effects of Christianity. They want the civilization, the freedom of enterprise, they want the trust and integrity of good will and good manners, which make commerce possible, and allow arts and proper inquiry to flourish.

But they don't want Christ.

You cannot have the thriving Western World without the One who made the worlds, and sent His Son to redeem the world.

Redemption is essential. The gift of righteousness is essential. The saving grace of God through Jesus is essential.

Faith is essential, and not merely some pathetic faith in man's abilities and intellect. The world needs faith in Christ Jesus to be saved. The West was saved, and then the West thrived. It's that simple.

Even Hegel, an arrogant crank of an academic who turned into an apologist for the Prussian State, had to conceded in his "The Philosophy of History" that there must be Reformation before there is Revolution. There can be no change in the culture, in the political framework of any country, until there is a spiritual awakening, a spiritual revival.

The United States. the Western World as a whole needs to get WOKE in the truest sense: a spiritual awakening. The whole world must awaken to righteousness.

The Western World has forgotten the Savior. They just want to save the good effects of good culture, but they cannot have the good without the godly, and they cannot receive the godly without the Gospel.

More reflections on this will come at a later time.

Michelle Larsen: Anti-Semitic, Racist Bigot, Compares Pro-America and Pro-Israel President to Hitler

 Michelle Larsen is a non-entity on the social media sphere.

She has a problem with minorities who think for themselves, so she insisted on attacking Filipino-American Edwin Duterte, who is retired President of the South Bay Republican Assembly, based in Redondo Beach, CA.

Here's Larsen's Facebook profile:

Click on this link to visit her Facebook page.

Michelle Larsen posted some anti-Semitic bigotry recently, and this hate needs to be exposed without relenting:

This is her hateful post. 

Here's the proof that Michelle Larsen shared this post:

Michelle Larsen is not just a bigot, she is a very stupid bigot.

There is no nice way of putting it.

President Trump has put the needs of ALL Americans first. He does not discriminate based on skin color. In fact. the State of California is trying to reintroduce discrimination and hate via Prop 16, but the vast majority of states are putting an end to this discrimination in hiring and college admissions practices.

President Trump has overseen an expansion of economic growth and a restoration of individual liberty like never before. This movement has benefited all Americans, regardless of their race or skin color.

Adolph Hitler targeted and diminished all ethnic groups and minorities. Trump has helped every one of those groups.

What's worse about Michelle Larsen's hate, is that she actually thinks that Trump is anti-Semitic. The truth is that the President has done more to solidify our relationship with Israel, and his policies have ensured a marked decline in Anti-Semitism in the United States.

Let's speak the truth without hesitation: Michelle Larsen is the anti-Semite, the anti-minority, liberal, white Karen who thinks she has the right (and the audacity) to tell people who do not look like her how to vote.

She is a racist, and she needs to be exposed for her hate.
