How to Stay Sane in a World Gone Mad November 16, 2020

For those of us who support the notion of maintaining the integrity of the great American experiment in personal liberty and economic freedom within the framework of a representative republic operating on democratic principles the events unfolding before us are the stuff of Orwellian nightmares.  Like watching a slow-motion train wreck, we have tuned in day after day to the spectacle of the once celebrated fairness of the American election system descending to a level that would make third-world banana republics, the old Soviet satellites, and Mideast pretend democracies blush.   

Election laws ignored, truckloads of ballots brought in under the cover of darkness and voting machines with pre-programmed winners and losers all covered over and excused by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.  And if you think the self-anointing establishment has convinced everyone that their straw man candidate and his Vice Power-behind-the-throne running mate have won anything ask the people who still have plywood up over their windows in the blue state people’s republics. 

Many on the Left have likened their battle to a Revolution, and one I think might resemble more what occurred in Russia in November 1917 than anything that has ever happened in our own History.  Many on the Right call this the preliminary battles of a new Civil War based not on sectional differences but on what Pat Buchanan warned us about more than thirty years ago; a cultural war for the soul of America.  This bewildering landscape with votes both legal and illegal scattered all over the place is a great battlefield and those who seek fairness must stand with Lincoln who hoped after the bloodbath of Gettysburg, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” 

And we can echo the sentiments of Reagan who during his magnificent fight to restore America said, “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” 

This thing is still very much up in the air.  And if we don’t want the Prince of the Power of the Air to win on all fronts it is absolutely critical that those who believe in the power of prayer in Jesus’ name do not lose heart.  We can spend our days glued to the TV or searching the Internet for news or we can instead recall that God is in control.  It was a miracle that gave us President Trump in the first place, and we can still believe for a miracle today.  Don’t give up.  Don’t despair.  Remember, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.”  And, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”  We can trust Him.  So why worry when we can pray. 

Ultimately the path I am advocating can be summed up in the chorus to an old song, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.” 

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

Standing on The Edge of The Abyss November 10, 2020

Today America quivers between two diametrically opposed points.  Will the Trumpian rebellion and its drive to exalt American sovereignty, power, and exceptionalism continue and pick up steam.  Or will the establishment return to unquestioned power and frog march masked and cowed citislaves to globalism, amnesty, socialized everything, reparations, and the Green New Deal?  According to the Democrats who identify as journalists and the Tech Giants who seek total control, most Americans want the latter while a radical fringe of 69 or 70 million people wants the former.

Eventually the Supreme Court, often the arbiter of political reality in modern America, will probably make the decision.  An easy prediction is that no matter which side wins the other side will call the result illegitimate.  Here’s another easy prediction.  If Trump is victorious look for Biden’s supporters to grace us with riots, pillage, and plunder (I mean reparations).  If Biden wins look for Trump’s rabid supporters to go to work the next day.  They may do quite a bit of mumbling and complaining but they will go to work the next day like normal.

If Trump wins and the Democrats retain the House, he will be impeached again in 2021 probably for winning.  If Biden wins look for executive orders to be flushed out of the Oval Office taking us back to the glory days of the Obama boom, strangulation by regulation, four dollar gas, mask mandates, and the corrupt media telling us how wonderful everything is now that Bad Orange Man is gone.

Either way everything I’ve described above is merely a part of this world. 

The abyss I refer to in the title to this is not political, economic, or philosophical.  It’s something much more fundamental and real than any of those things, it’s spiritual.  Some people believe that reality consists only of what they can see, touch, or smell.  These people are of this world and their understanding is restricted to this world.  For, “the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”  Some even believe this world exists completely on a physical plain when those who believe the Bible know, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”

While the news of the day may thrill us or make us wretch, we should realize it’s all confined to the here and now.  And all of these world-shaking events and heart stopping cliffhangers are just passing fancies, so much dust in the wind.  When we contemplate earthly things, we should be careful to keep them in perspective.  Here’s a historical riddle that may give some insight.  The largest empire ever created by man lasted for longer than the United States has so far.  It was still alive and strong when Columbus sailed off to the West.  I doubt if many people reading this can name that empire correctly.  It and all its glory have faded into the mist of History.  It’s easy for anyone with an historical perspective to believe that in six or seven hundred years the passions and nuances if not the events themselves of our tumultuous times will be long forgotten.

Few Americans can name even one of their great-great-grand parents, though there were sixteen of them.  Most can’t name more than one or two of their great-grandparents though there were eight of them.  If they can, they might know a name.  Possibly even where they were born but what do they know of their lives?  The future slides into the present.  The present slides into the past.  Our lives are the history of the future.  And even in our own families the very sound of our names let alone the fabric of our lives dissolve into the mist of time in a few short generations.

The here and now within this bubble we call the space-time continuum always has a definite beginning and a definite end.  There is nothing that last forever.  Nothing physical can.  Even stars that live for billions of years burn out.  Everything physical eventually wears out and dies.

When we believe this is all there is, we tend to think we are the center of the universe.  This is easily explained since that’s the only physical perspective anyone can ever have.  However, if we live long enough, we come to realize that this world rolls around with little regard for us or our thoughts.  We slowly come to realize that we’re mere stagehands in this drama crawling across the stage of time.  If we could see the program, we’d realize we’re more like unwilling participants or paying customers than leading players.  Someone we never see writes the script and like self-aware marionettes we dance to the tune of whoever is pulling the strings.

If that’s all there is … If that’s all there is … “If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing.  Let’s break out the booze and have a ball.  If that’s all there is.” 

I lived my life following that philosophy for thirty years.  And it led me to the emptiness of total despair.  Then I turned away from the darkness of self-absorbed materialism and into the marvelous light of Christ’s love.  I learned that the here and now is only here and now.  I learned that there’s an eternal God who lives outside this bubble, who created this bubble, and who keeps it in existence.  I also learned that He intervened in the senseless repetition of human history and made a way for us to have direct fellowship with Him. 

All we have to do is confess the Son He sent to live, die, and rise for us as the lord and leader of our life and believe in our heart God has raised Him from the dead and we will be saved.  We will enter into communion with Him and take our first step out of the here and now into eternity.

Don’t let the temporary ups and downs of politics, economics, or anything else steal your peace.  Or as one song puts it:

Keep your eyes on the prize.  Leave the world behind.

And look to the One who really loves you.

There’s no excuse for leaving the truth.

Once you know Jesus is the One who loves you.

By the way, the largest empire that ever existed was the Mongol Empire.  It strode across the stage like a colossus conquering all before it.  Then it crumbled into dust forgotten in the rushing stream of time like an earthquake whose massive signs of destruction have been erased by wind and waves.

America’s Most Pro-Life President November 2, 2020

For those of us with even a passing knowledge of biology the idea that life begins at conception is not a religious or moral decision it is an empirical fact.  Within the impregnated egg is the spark of life.  In tandem with this is the knowledge that this fertilized egg contains the genetic code for a unique individual, a member of the human family.  For those who believe God is the source of all life we know the fundamental genesis of this reality even if we don’t know the particulars of a specific case.  This last sentence could be called an article of faith.  The three preceding sentences are not a leap in the dark.  They are fact-based and undeniable.

In 1973, the Supreme Court gave the world a perfect example of politically motivated myth making when they supposedly discovered the right to privacy hidden in the words of the Fourth Amendment.  This Amendment never mentions privacy and actually deals with unreasonable searches and seizures.  The imperial Supreme Court by declaring abortion a civil right was in effect legislating and not adjudicating.  Ever since, Americans who believe life is given by God and shouldn’t be taken by man have longed for a President who would do more than espouse pro-life values during election campaigns.

The following list highlights President Trump’s massive efforts to support the pro-life community and their on-going campaign to protect the unborn who are dying daily in this silent holocaust.

  1. Ended funding of groups that perform and promote abortion overseas

Right after his inauguration one of President Trump’s first actions reinstated the “Mexico City Policy.”  This is a policy prohibiting any non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that receive U.S. aid from performing and promoting abortion overseas.  It is regularly imposed by Republicans and ended by Democrats.

And he not only reinstated the policy, Trump expanded it into a new Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance program.  The President directed the Secretary of State to make sure that the ban on the use of American taxpayer funds for overseas abortions is now in place in any global health programs to which our government provide assistance.

  1. Appointed pro-life judges

During the final presidential debate with Hillary Clinton in 2016, challenger Donald Trump stated, “I am pro-life, and I will be appointing pro-life judges.”

In the ensuing three and a half years he has fulfilled that promise nominating three judges to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Neil Gorsuch, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

In a recent report the Heritage Foundation stated that Trump’s federal judiciary confirmations number 218.  According to Breitbart News by the end of his first term, President Trump and the Republican Senate have confirmed more judges to the federal judiciary in one term than any recent administration.

  1. Signed a resolution that allows states to end Planned Parenthood’s family planning funding

In April 2017, Trump signed a resolution that overturned an rule imposed by President Obama that forced states to grant Title X family planning funds to Planned Parenthood.

  1. Defunded the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)

Under orders from President Trump the State Department has ended U.S. funding of UNFPA .  Funding that the Obama administration required flowed to this international agency linked by so-called human rights activists to the unqualified support of population control programs such as China’s “one-child policy.  A Policy that in many cases included coercive abortion.

  1. Required health insurance companies to reveal plans that cover abortion.

Under Obama Care people were forced to purchase insurance policies that included payments for abortion services, often without disclosing that fact to those compelled to purchase them.  The Trump Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) stripped away this masked funding program for abortion mills.  In 2018 HHS issued a rule requiring health insurers to reveal if their plans cover abortion.

  1. New rules regarding HHS contraceptive mandate

Breaking from the unqualified support demanded by the Obama Administration the Trump departments of HHS, Treasury, and Labor issued two rules providing protection for both religious objectors, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, and moral objectors, such as pro-life organizations from the HHS contraceptive mandate to provide insurance that pays for contraceptives or abortifacient drugs.

  1. New Office for Conscience Protection at HHS

The new Conscience and Religious Freedom division of the Office for Civil Rights opened in January 2018.  This newly formed division established by the Trump HHS is tasked with protecting health care providers who don’t want to fund abortions from discrimination.

  1. Established that abortion is not family planning

Before President Trump Title X, the federal grant program that provides funding for family planning services provided vast amounts of money to the abortion mills of America.  Effectively blocking about $60 million in American tax payer funding from flowing to Planned Parenthood and other abortion provider the Trump HHS released a rule 1n February 2019 ending this bountiful giveaway instituted by the Obama Administration.  President Trump’s action now prohibits the use of Title X funds to “perform, promote, refer for, or support abortion as a method of family planning.”

  1. Ending taxpayer-funded research using bodies of aborted babies

The Trump HHS announced In June 2019, that taxpayer funding would no longer be provided for research programs using human fetal tissue derived from the body parts of aborted babies.

  1. Clarified abortion is not a civil right

Rebuking the pro-abortion U.N. and World Health Organization (W.H.O.) the Trump Administration eliminated both gender identity, termination of pregnancy, and abortion from the federal government’s official definition of sex discrimination implemented by the Obama administration.

Going beyond trying to protect life only in the United States President Trump led a 32-nation signing ceremony declaring that there is no international right to abortion.

The rule protects health care entities that receive federal funding from being required to participate in, or pay for, abortions.

The declaration states, “in no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning … and … the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.”

This action brought praise from pro-life leaders.  The national director of Priests for Life, Father Frank Pavone, observed, “This is the first time these nations have committed to working together – despite cultural and religious differences – to ensure that human rights are extended to every member of the human family.”

The President of the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) a group that tracks Trump’s pro-life wins, Marjorie Dannenfelser said,

Abortion is not health care. Sovereign nations have the right to protect their most vulnerable citizens, including the unborn, and to be free from bullying and coercive efforts to expand abortion on demand. From day one, President Trump and his administration have worked to stop the exportation of abortion, making respect for life the official policy of the United States in our international relations. We join our friends around the world in celebrating this landmark declaration, which builds on the Trump administration’s commitment to promote authentic human rights and dignity at every turn.

And the president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles Alfonso Aguilar said, “President Trump is standing for the defense of life in the Americas like no other president in history.”

  1. Became the first president to appear in person to address the March for Life

In January 2020, for the first time a sitting president attended the annual March for Life in Washington, DC, this is the largest pro-life event in the nation every year. 

In the past Republican presidents opposed to abortion, including Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, did not personally attending the march perhaps seeking to avoid being too strongly associated with demonstrators eager to outlaw the procedure. Instead of attending they sent remarks for others to deliver, spoke via telephone hookup or invited organizers to the White House.  All marks of support however, they never attended the march.

Breaking this precedent Donald Trump delivered his words to the gathering in person saying, “Today as President of the United States, I am truly proud to stand with you.”

  1. Signed executive order protecting infants born alive

In September, while attending the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast President Trump announced, “Today I’m announcing that I will be signing the Born Alive executive order to ensure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty.  We are also increasing federal funding for the neonatal research to ensure that every child has the very best chance to thrive and to grow.”

The President also said, “I will always protect the vital role of religion and prayer in American society.  And I will always defend the sacred right to life.”

President Trump wrote in a letter outlining Joe Biden’s embrace of the Democrat Party’s extreme position of abortion on demand, at taxpayer expense.  Contrasting his goals with those of the rabidly pro-abortion democrat President Trump said the if re-elected, he will work to “continue the transformation of the federal judiciary, finally pass and sign into law pro-life legislation, including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.”  The president also pledged in early September to defund Planned Parenthood if elected to a second term.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, the previously mentioned president of the SBA List, serves as national co-chair with Christina Bennett, of Pro-Life Voices for Trump praised the President’s  leadership and referred to his many accomplishments as “groundbreaking.”

Dannenfelser said, “In just one term, Trump has become the most pro-life president our nation has ever seen.”

She added, “In 2016 then-candidate Donald Trump’s groundbreaking written commitments were instrumental to mobilizing pro-life voters to propel him to victory however, there is more work to be done.”

Pointing to the President’s letter offering his commitments for a second term Dannenfelser said, it is “further proof of pro-life momentum heading into this pivotal election.”

Noting that she believed pro-life issues would become a plus for the President in the election Dannenfelser believes,  “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s support for abortion on-demand, paid for by taxpayers is extreme, immoral, and will prove to be a loser at the ballot box.”
