Is America Being Played? Vic Biorseth thinks so…

The End Game?

By Vic Biorseth, Friday, September 14, 2012

Thinking Catholic Strategic Center

Could the end game have begun already, so soon after the great Tea Party awakening, and the general realization of what the game is about? Before the whole population is even aware that there is a game?

“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men?” was the line deeply intoned by the voice over the radio in an old, old, but much beloved regular radio show from a bygone era. We might well ask that very question about what’s going on in the geopolitical world today, at this moment in time. Nothing is what it appears to be. I don’t know for certain all that’s going on behind the scenes, but I do know this:

We are being played.

We have spoken elsewhere in this site about the sneaky, underhanded linkup between Marxism and Islam to cooperate in the cause of increasing global chaos and instability. In a bygone era Islam quietly shook hands with National Socialism and stood with them to oppose the civilized world, so no one should be surprised by this newer uneasy alliance between more sophisticated forms of Marxism, and more sophisticated forms of Islam.

But, Marxism is rabidly atheistic, and Islam is ferociously theocratic, you say; close alliance between them is therefore impossible. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” say both Marxism and Islam. They will work out their religious differences later, after they have cooperated in destroying all other opposition. When their common enemies are no more, then they may turn their guns on each other; but that is for tomorrow, not today. One step at a time.

Some clues have been dropped in the embassy attacks in Egypt and in Libya:

Masks used in the Occupy Wall Street activities were used in the storming of the embassies; what’s the linkage between the OWS movement and the American embassy attacks in North Africa? What were those American OWS masks doing over there?
It is reported and pretended that some movie disrespectful of Mohammed incited the “spontaneous” mob action, but it has been shown that the most important parts of the action was a very carefully planned, timed, choreographed and orchestrated attack, and not spontaneous at all.

The attacks are reported and pretended to be anti-movie and not anti-USA mob action; but what the rioters chanted for the cameras was “Obama, Obama, we are all Osama!” Indicating vengeful bloodthirst for Obama, over Obama and Biden publicly spiking the football over the killing of Osama.

Most of the claims for the movie causing all of this, rather than any planned event or series of events planned to begin on September 11, seem to come from our side of the ocean, not theirs. Most of the Moslems had never seen the movie or any trailer, although some had heard of it; could some Marxists have whispered in their ears?

I smell the tactics of Saul Alinsky in all of this.

The current upper echelons of American government are permeated with Alinskyites. (Alinskyites are the sneakiest, most treacherous forms of Marxists, who always work under deep cover, and who are never what they appear to be.) For example, our Secretary of State, Madam Hillary, wrote her college thesis on Saul Alinsky. For another example, our President, Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is another Alinskyite. The only non-academic job he ever held was with an Alinskyite organization called the Deveolping Communities Project, where he was employed as a Communist Agitator. Excuse me, I meant to say Community Organizer. (The two terms are synonymous.) You might say that Madam Hillary and Comrade Obama majored in Alinsky.

And what, exactly, did Professor Saul Alinsky (RIP) teach?

  • How to bring down America and topple the American government, from the inside, using deep treachery.

In Refuting Marx we said that Karl Marx, influenced by the evil and treacherous writings of Machiavelli and by the Hegelian Dialectic, sought to incite and induce chaos and revolution on a global scale, to bring down governments using armies of mal-informed “useful idiots” incited by committed agent provocateurs, all of whom were expendable for the cause of the Revolution. This is the evil “The Ends Justify The Means” idea advancing into Western, supposedly Judao-Christian, mainstream thought. And there it continues to grow and spread. “All is fair in love and war” is an example commonplace derivative notion, seen in song, literature and entertainment. But all is Not fair, in anything. The Ends do not justify any and all means.

But after suffering so many failures and set-backs in attempts at direct “popular” revolution, Marxism survived – and thrived – as a strategy of world conquest by going largely underground and becoming even more treacherous, and even more deceptive, and even more evil. Advances in strategy and tactics included Alinsky’s get on the inside and destroy the system from within, in which the revolutionary or his recruited agent-provoacateur would put on a suit and tie, act civilized, play the game according to the rules, by all appearances, but maintain the revolutionary destructive zeal. The Cloward-Piven strategy was developed and deployed, by which armies of Useful-Idiots would be recruited and “Community Organized” into large groups that might

  • apply in massive application submissions for various government and/or corporate programs – disability; college tuition grants; rent subsidies; more benefits; higher pay; retirement; better insurance; any large government or large corporation “charitable” program, in order to overload the system and cause it to break down.
  • find and put into practice large-scale voter fraud prgrams at various elections around the country.
  • incite hostility toward “the system” and/or “the man” and/or the sitting government in various targeted minority groups, and identify new groups ripe for infiltration and recruitment to the cause.
  • organize seemingly disorganized public spectacles, such as the OWS movement, and provide some loose organization, targets and incentives to anarchists.

“Popular” revolution is quite impossible in America; therefore, Marxism has had to become far more treacherous, sneaky and underhanded here than anywhere else on earth. But the goal remains the same: to bring down the government and replace it with a typical Marxist dictatorship.

In Refuting Mohammed we said that Islam declared war on us, and on the whole of the non-Islamic world, long before we existed as a nation. Before Columbus sailed. Before the Reformation. Mainstream, mainline Islam declared war on the whole non-Islamic world somewhere around the year of our Lord 600. Read here what the Moslem is instructed – by the irrevocable word of Allah, spoken through the lips of his prophet Mohammed, recorded forever in the Koran – to do to us non-Moslems:

  • So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. – Koran Sura 9:5.
  • Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. – Koran Sura 9:29.

Again, this is mainstream Islam. It is not the Moslem Brotherhood, or any of the groups they gave birth to, such as Al Queda. It is Islam. That is to say, the Moslem Brotherhood is absolutely mainstream, in Islam. It is not a matter of interpretation. No Moslem may oppose or disagree with those words. That is what they are instructed to do, and how they are instructed to behave toward us.

Now, Islam is a theocracy; a radical combination of Church and state, in which ecclesial law and civil law are all contained in one book: the Koran. No law – including our own Constitution – is above the Koran, in the house of Islam. Islam thus seeks not only to convert us out of our own religions, but to rule us via the Koran, and to hell with our Constitution. Others may argue and quibble about Sharia law, and different manifestations of it in different lands – but I’m telling you that the real threat is not Sharia, and not any terrorist group coming out of Islam; the real threat to America, to Israel, and to the whole world, is Islam itself.

Once Islam was militarily beaten back and driven out of Europe, it never recovered its former military capabilities of conquest; nevertheless, the imperative to grow itself and conquer the world remained a vital commandment in the Koran. So, Islam, like Marxism, found other ways.

As we said in Refuting Mohammed, Islam has never changed it’s commitment to continue the march to Ummah. In WWII Islam aligned with the Nazi-Fascist branch of Marxism because of its treatment of the Jews. Over time, Moslems have become Machiavellian in nature. They have adopted The Ends Justify The Means, and become underhanded, sneaky and treacherous, just like the Marxists. In dar al-harb, where we infidels live, Moslems are the most peaceful, wonderful, loving examples of people to be found in the Islamic faith. Until they gain a little more population and a little more power. The Islamic attitude changes, radically and brutally, when and where Islam is in control.

The final goal of Islam is the same as the final goal of Marxism: Borderless, nation-less, one world global government, which is to say, a world dictatorship.

The history of Islam is a history of war and of conquest; the ideology/religion of Islam is one of brutal domination, subjugation, forced submission, misogyny, abuse, torture and murder.

When they gain a strong control of an area of total or near total Islamic population, such as in Dearborn Michigan, they become increasingly beligerent toward the non-Islamic host government, to the point that the host nation may actually have to fight to regain legal control of its own territory. It has become, for them, Dar Al-Islam – the house of Islam – and they will not give it up without a fight to the death. There, so long as they are the occupiers, the only law that may be applied is Islamic law.

If you think it is not the same in Dearborn Michigan as in the various Islamic controlled areas in the environs of Paris France, you are very sadly mistaken.

In Refuting Obama we indicated that Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is not like us, and is not even like the most rabidly Marxist of his American compatriots and allies. He wasn’t raised here, and he doesn’t really understand America or Americans. He is, by instinct, much more of a raw Marxian than an Alinskyite. Where the Clintons masterfully work the slow, steady Progressive method of advancing the Revolution, Comrade Obama wants all chaos, all instability, all break-down, right now. He wants to bring it on. He is more the old-time Revolutionary, and much less the Progressive or the mere Liberal. While the ultimate goal for all of them is the same, he wants to achieve it all, right now.

Many are puzzled as to why he seems so embarrassingly stupid in his approach to American politics; lately he seems to be committing political suicide almost every time he opens his mouth, or when he does not speak when he clearly should speak. But I don’t think he cares too much about whether he wins the 2012 election; he’ll take it if that’s all he can get, but he would much rather be dictator than President. He will do whatever he thinks he has to do to win the election, but that is not the first thing on his agenda. He would much rather be dictator over a ruined, empoverished, destroyed, burning and warring America than a properly elected President over a strong and prosperous American nation that he loathes and despises.

To that end, he is spending us into economic collapse, printing money to make it worthless, cutting defense and interfering with military effectiveness, insulting and alienating allies, encouraging and befriending enemies, saddling us with impossible and nonsensical law, overriding the Constitution and bypassing Congress at every turn, and generally making a shambles of the American system of government. He is pissing us off, on purpose. Agitation is the name of the game. Instability, anger, chaos and hostility are the necessary ingredients of a radical transformation of the system, which is what he intended from the beginning.

Expanding our view to encompass the geopolitical situation, we see that the rest of the world is in a much more precarious state than America, even as bad as our own situtation is. While we are well along the way down the increasingly steep economic slippery slope, many European nations are now over the cliff. Every time they get some sort of bail-out – which is to say, every time they stupidly try to borrow their way out of debt – the stock market goes up, proving again that the stock market condition has no real world relationship to the state of the world economy, or to any nation’s economy. Each bail-out makes the condition worse, not better, and makes the inevitable crash even more unbearable for the population. There is not enough money existing in the world to pay off all that debt, and they keep trying to borrow more just to continue to exist as nations. (And so do we, with all of our ideological Marxists in high office.)

How will all those nations ever get out from under the collapsing Euro? How will they all reestablish their own currencies, and their own national identities? Will European nations, and even the European Union itself, descend into civil war?

When we look to the Obama inspired and encouraged Arab Spring, or Moslem Spring, or Springtime of Democracy all across North Africa and the Middle East, we, for the most part, miss the similarity to the Springtime of Revolution ushered in by the publication of Marx’s Communist Manifesto in 1848, when some 50 nations experienced violent Communist revolution. The ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. We miss, or miss-interpret, the growing relationship between Marxism and Islam at our own mortal peril.

The more recent violence involving the storming of American embassies, the murder of an American ambassador and other Americans, the burning of American flags, the raising of Al Queda flags, and the trashing of American property is blamed, by our government, on a movie trailer that very few people have ever seen.

Again, I smell Alinsky.

I have little doubt that this movie trailer, or some description of it, was used to incite some Moslem useful idiots to violence; but these were planned attacks, perhaps part of a larger strategy, timed to begin on September 11. It would not surprise me to learn that the movie itself was made, or made available, or somehow abrogated by Alinskyites as an excuse to be used by our predominantly Alinskyite government leadership to both condemn Judao-Christianity and excuse outraged Moslems. It’s a double whammy for them. It’s a more sophisitcated advance of the revolutionary cause.

At any rate, civil war and broader war is ongoing, or on the brink, in the world of Islam.

The risky business of revolution is what this is all about, and Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is a greater risk taker than any of his fellow Democrats. He is more of a Lenin than an Alinsky. The risks are high; they always are; but so are the potential rewards.

The Egyptian chant “Obama, Obama, we are all Osama!” would indicate that there are some Moslems who would like Obama’s head on a pike. No big deal; revolution is risky business. There are other Moslems who find him useful. Among Democrats, the Clintons would probably like his head on a pike; and he would like theirs on a pike. But at the moment, they work together in the greater interest of the common cause.

Among the Moslems, the Shia and the Sunni despise each other; yet, they will join together against the rest of the world, just as they did under Saladin. When the rest of the world is under submission, they may turn back to war with each other; but first, they will obey the Koran and conquer the non-Islamic world.

So it has always been in the world of Marxism. Stalin is credited with personally signing millions of death warrants of fellow Communist Party faithful in his purges. There can be only one dictator.

Dictatorship requires revolution; when revolution is not popularly supported, it requires subterfuge, chaos, destabilization and perhaps war. The bigger the war the bigger the opportunity. World War would offer the grand prize. Always, after such grand, multiple-nation conflagrations – the Islamic Conquest; the Crusades; the Reformation; World War I; World War II; there is a major reshuffling of power in the world. Marxist would-be dictators and Moslem would-be Caliphs all hope to capitalize on the situation and make themselves the one who winds up on top.

Failing that, they might become a lesser dictator of a lesser country, or, a high-ranking bureaucrat, or politiocrat, or close adviser to the grand high leader. Chaos, disorder and terror must come first. Out of chaos comes opportunity. Out of chaos comes the Machiavellian champion to restore order and assume the throne. Marxism and Islam, both, see that as the path to dictatorship. They will cooperate, for a time, to achieve it. And Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is prepared to go either way in the end. He can play the Marxist, and he can play the Moslem; what he actually is, is what they all are: the Selfist.

They make fools of the world. While many followers of Marxist ideology, and many followers of Islam, may believe in God, or at least in some higher ideal, none of their leaders do. It’s all a sham. They believe only in themselves. Everyone beneath them are merely different layers and types of useful idiots; mere expendable tools to be manipulated and used for special purposes and then discarded.

What are we to do about all this? Steady as she goes.
do Not keep your head down; keep your eye on the ball. Do not be distracted from the fact that Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, intends the destruction of all that we hold dear. This predictable election year “October Surprise” may be a war; perhaps even a world war. Historically American voters rally round the President in any such national emergency.

Don’t do it. Don’t be fooled.

We have got to get through this next election in the normal way; even if he suspends the Constitution and declares martial law; even if he suspends the election on an emergency basis; somehow, we have got to make it through this next election, or America is lost forever.

He doesn’t really know what’s going to happen any more than we do. Chaos is unpredictable. His only leg up is that he is the chief instigator of the chaos, but he cannot predict what that chaos will ultimately bring about.

Steady as she goes; keep your eye on the ball.

Fast; pray; prepare.

The Lord will sustain us.

Wall Street: Occupying the Minds of Useful Idiots — Big Ideas for Violent Government…

Well, at least this UCSC student actually “gets it.”

Hard to understand why exactly the Occupy Wall Street crowd is protesting money interests while simultaneously calling for the re-election of Barack Obama? Wall Street was a key contributor to Obama’s election campaign back in 2008, and the One-Term Prez was again prancing about various Wall Street fundraiser’s in New York just last week. Socialist ideologue Michael Moore probably has a better handle on what’s going on with the OWS crowd with his calls to abolish Capitalism… My guess is that 99% of the young students protesting the “1%’s” on Wall Street have no actual idea that their own minds have been occupied by various philosophies and  false ideologies the world has had to endure previously, namely, Atheistic Communism. The reality here me thinks is they are actually “Useful Idiots” for powerful Socialist forces seeking to further destabilize authentic free market systems that would never be caught dead in bed with the Federal Government, as is the case with Wall Street… The following video confirms that at least one of these “Useful Students” is okay with the idea of Government using violence for the cause, so I thought it might be beneficial to reveal the game plan from U. of M(arxism) coach, Saul Alinsky… Video follows the drivel…

“A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.”  S. Alinsky

***

Enough said, eh?… Do you, like me, get the sense that these kids really don’t actually understand why the hell their at the protest to begin with? I sure don’t.

I’ll leave you with two realistic views of the future if this supposed non-violent movement would somehow actually come to fruition as envisioned by their masters. The first, from Vic Biorseth on how pseudo “Power To The People” movements like this one gravitates from representative government towards Socialism; and the second, a video revealing the true evil of Socialism as told by victims…

“As a society moves from representative government, or any form of government, toward Socialism there is a steady and relentless migration of political and economic power from the citizenry up to the central government. When total Socialism is achieved, the central government holds all political and economic power, and the people hold none.

The “Communist dream” promises to eliminate world hunger and poverty; it is a false dream, feeding a false ideology. Existing history proves that all Socialism has ever done is to kill many tens of millions of people, perhaps even hundreds of millions, and bring poverty, cruelty and brutality to whole nations and vast territories.”

Now, here’s the human cost:

CCHD 2010 — Keep up the boycott!

In June LifeSiteNews reported on ten dioceses opting out of the bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development, the “charity” that funds groups supporting abortion and other activities anathema to Catholic teaching. The group has a history of advancing leftwing causes and politicians. In fact, leftwing politics played a large part in the beginning of CCHD when Saul Alinsky and Msgr. Jack Egan hatched a plan to get their hands in the pockets of Catholics in the pew for their socialistic version of “social justice.” The Reform CCHD Coalition sent a report to all the bishop prior to their June meeting listing the continued problems with the group. You can see the press release here and the PDF report here. The Coalition documents 50 CCHD recipients that have links to positions in opposition to Church teaching.

As of June ten bishops had publicly opted out of CCHD. Here’s the list:

Bishop Joseph Adamec – Altoona-Johnstown, Pennsylvania
Bishop Robert J. Baker – Birmingham, Alabama
Bishop John O. Barres – Allentown, Pennsylvania
Bishop Lawrence Brandt – Greensburg, Pennsylvania
Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz – Lincoln, Nebraska
Bishop Victor Galeone – St. Augustine, Florida
Bishop Robert C. Morlino – Madison, Wisconsin
Bishop Kevin Rhoades (formerly) – Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Bishop David Ricken – Green Bay, Wisconsin
Bishop Edward J. Slattery – Tulsa, Oklahoma

CCHD has refused to release the list of 2010 grantees until AFTER the November Collection. The message is — “Trust us!” Anybody who does is like the Gingerbread Boy who let the fox swim him across the river. Here’s what Mike Voris has to say about the upcoming collection. As for “the insider” I think I know who he is and he definitely knows of what he speaks. CCHD is a fraud and no informed Catholic would give to this bogus collection. Pass it on.

CCHD ‘has risen from the grave’

 So, “the Count” lives on, CCHD has risen from the grave…

What better metaphor could be found for the annual CCHD collection than that of the eternally insatiable Count Dracula and his apparent spell over the USCCB?

–No protest for orthodoxy could ever hold him.

–No parish door has ever barred his way.

–To resist him is useless.

–To rise up against him is futile.

–And in the end, he drags away his cash box…

See for yourself…. 

[Note: It’s yet to be determined if that’s a young Michael Voris grappling futilely with the Count himself at the 1:57 mark].

Same as it ever was? — USCCB “Review and Renewal of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development” betrays utter lack of reform

I’ve downloaded and read the CCHD “Review and Renewal of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development as Accepted and Affirmed by the USCCB Administrative Committee,” – promulgated on September 15, 2010 – and can only cry in absolute frustration, that nothing has changed. The new, improved CCHD is still all about funding Alinskyian organizing (organizing based on the organizational theories of the late, great Saul Alinsky)….which is still all about progressive politics…which is still all about killing babies.

Yes, CCHD grants will go to progressive organizations that are also concerned with decriminalizing undocumented immigrants, socializing medicine, and nationalizing public education, as it always has, but those are issues good men and women can disagree about. Good organizations, on the other hand, don’t support politicians and policies that kill babies. Since CCHD continues to fund organizations that support pro-abortion politicians and policies, nothing has changed.

There has been no reform of CCHD.

There has been no renewal of CCHD.

CCHD has intractably set its course. It was founded to fund Alinskyian organizing and it will, if this document of “review and renewal” is any indication, go down funding Alinskyian organizing.

The document’s Introduction, for instance, after a whole lot of pious rhetoric, lists 4 examples of “CCHD’s remarkable work.” Two of those examples are Alinskyian organizations: Communities Organized for Public Service (COPS), an affiliate of Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation network, and the Federation of Congregations United to Serve (FOCUS), an affiliate of PICO, a network founded in the IAF-style by an IAF-trained organizer. This is “CCHD’s remarkable work.”

Pro-life groups around the US, under the banner of Reform CCHD Now, have demonstrated that dozens of CCHD grantees have been directly engaged in activities that violate Church teachings. According to “Review and Renewal,” CCHD has withdrawn funding from only five of them. If this is the best CCHD can manage, despite overwhelming evidence against the others, CCHD assurances that it will be putting into place “stronger policies and clearer mechanisms to screen and monitor grants and groups” is very un-reassuring.

And while it has verbally distanced itself from groups that are also indirectly engaged in activities that violate Church teachings, the money pours from Catholics, who think their donations are “for the poor,” straight into progressive coffers. So while CCHD states it “will not fund groups that are members of coalitions which have as part of their organizational purpose or coalition agenda, positions or actions that contradict fundamental Catholic moral and social teaching,” it continues to fund the Alinskyian organizing networks and their affiliates. The two “model” grantees give us a very nice picture of how this plays.

Democrat pro-choice politician Henry Cisneros of San Antonio owed his successful mayoral bid directly to the IAF. “IAF’s most successful projects have been based in Texas, where Communities Organized for Public Service (COPS) in San Antonio helped elect Henry Cisneros as the city’s first Hispanic mayor.” [David Walls, “Power to the People: Thirty-five Years of Community Organizing,” The Workbook, summer 1994. Cisneros served as mayor of San Antonio from 1981 to 1987.]

As for the Federation of Congregations United to Serve, it recently became a partner with Public Allies Central Florida. Public Allies, whose founding advisory board included President Obama and whose Chicago chapter was run by Michelle Obama from 1993-1996, was one of the original AmeriCorps programs. Its mission is to “advance new leadership” and, in that capacity frequently has “partnered” with Planned Parenthood (e.g. Milwaukee and Pittsburgh). In fact, Public Allies’ national head of finance and administration is Tim Hosch, previously the Controller at Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. What an interesting partner for a CCHD-funded organization.

Guilt by association? You betcha. These associations marry Alinskyian community organizations to the progressive policies and persons of the Democrat Party – and Alinskyian community organizations are the groups that receive the bulk of CCHD grants.

With that in mind, consider CCHD’s new “commitments,” detailed in “Review and Renewal.” Many of them involve plastering statements of intention here and there (“Add introductory statement on CCHD mission foundations and identity on all forms, applications, materials,” “Revise CCHD Grant Agreement to more clearly state prohibited activities,” “…add more specific language to the CCHD Grant Agreement,” “…revise and refine the CCHD Grant Agreement for greater clarity”) that will mean absolutely NOTHING unless there is a fundamental restructuring of the collection.

Similarly, creating “a new position to focus on promoting, safeguarding and monitoring the Catholic identity of CCHD and compliance with CCHD requirements” will accomplish NOTHING if the person who fills that position thinks – as CCHD has argued for 40 years – that Alinskyian community organizing and its political shenanigans are perfectly compliant with CCHD requirements.

It’s all doublespeak unless there’s a change of direction – a metanoia – a conversion. Doing what CCHD has always done will produce what CCHD has always produced.

Stop trying to “Share the Good News of CCHD” (could “Review and Renewal” have crafted a more offensive statement?) and start sharing the good news of Jesus. Stop trying to “empower the poor” and help them, instead. Stop worrying about the bad PR (“CCHD will develop more timely, consistent and effective ways to monitor and respond to coverage of CCHD in both new and traditional media”) and worry instead about bad programs. For heaven’s sake, don’t try to persuade us that “enlarge[ing] the range of grant amounts ($25,000 – $75,000)” to organizations whose progressive fellowships – that’s “dead babies” when you come out of the bureaucratic and into the real world – is positive.

Way toward the end of “Review and Renewal,” there’s a little item that “CCHD will seek appropriate ways to integrate its activities to protect the life and dignity of those who are poor or suffering from economic injustice into the broader USCCB “life and dignity” priority…The connection between family (broken families, absent fathers, domestic violence, unwed pregnancies, etc.) and economic (joblessness, low wages, discrimination, globalization, etc.) aspects of poverty should be an area of continuing focus for CCHD.” It’s the best part of this sorry 15-page document.

However, one would like to know why, in the one spot in the US where this very connection was attempted – the Archdiocese of Chicago – the CCHD director was “let go.”

For 40 years, the Catholic bishops and the Catholic community in the United States have been duped. They have been unwitting partners in a serious and sustained commitment to manipulate low-income people and poor communities into supporting a progressive agenda that has included dead babies. That isn’t how we serve the poor – and it doesn’t make their lives better.

But it does insure that the reviewed and renewed CCHD is pretty much the same creature as it’s always been.

The Village Liar — Deliverance From Evil (Part 4)

“Some things cannot be compromised. The difference between good and evil is one.”

67d3df9eb2e1fcaa_landing

Deliverance From Evil (Part 4)

by

Vic Biorseth

The many disguises of evil.

From John 8:44:

“You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

213316660YCDPFI_fsThe two names our Lord gave to Satan are murderer and liar. The two names go together. Untruth leads to death, and leads others to death, in more ways than one.

Our sole problem in contemporary America involves truth vs. untruth.

Of course, the biggest, most dangerous and most successful (in America) opposition to truth factor involves the varying levels of acceptance of Marxist ideology. And there are lots of levels. My contention is that there is nothing in Marxism that is of any value to man. But many Americans consider some part of Marxist theory to be of some value. Only one of these positions can be correct.

DachauBabies3Beginning, I think, some time in the thirties, when the world began to be aware of the government brutalities imposed on people in Russia and in Germany, American Leftists – both of the German and Russian variants – began to refer to themselves as moderates, to disassociate themselves and their movements from Marxism. At some point, the new word for Communist became Moderate. The term Leftist has always applied to Marxists. For a number of decades, the term Liberal was favored.

Today, few American Marxists refer to themselves as Marxists. Even Leftist is too strong for most of them. Even the softer Liberal is too strong for some of them. Moderate seems about right for most of them; but note well that they all remain Marxist.

We are mesmerized into thinking that one can be a little bit Liberal, or take some of Marx’s theory to heart, and still be a good Constitutional American. This is false. It is untrue. There is nothing at all in Marxism that is in any way compatible with Constitutional America. Seeking any sort of compromise position between Marxist theory and Constitutional American can only result in a weakened Constitutional America.

2043458907_a919d624f2Some things cannot be compromised. The difference between good and evil is one. Government by Marxism, in any variant or form whatsoever, and government by the American Constitution is another. They are incompatible, to the point of being mutually exclusive. You can either have free markets and a liberated citizenry, or you can have some variant of Socialism, one or the other. You cannot have both.

I therefore regard Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Nazism, Liberalism, Leftism, Moderate-ism and Marxism to all be one and the same thing. For simplification, I refer to them all as Marxism, which is what they all are.

Again, our problem in contemporary America involves truth vs. untruth.

Marxist Driven Public Education.

213316660YCDPFI_fsSo where is all the untruth coming from? Little American children are not learning how to put condoms on cucumbers, and the mechanics of safe fornication, protected sodomy and responsible promiscuity in home schools, private schools, parochial schools, in their homes or in their Churches, Temples or Synagogues. Little American children are being taught these things, solely and exclusively, in the Marxist driven public school system.

FRANCE-RELIGION-POPE-CONDOMHillary has taught us that it takes a village to raise a child. See?

Little American girls are not smuggled in and out of abortion mills without their parent’s knowledge from any home schools, private schools, parochial schools, from their homes or from their Churches, Temples or Synagogues. That sort of thing is done, solely and exclusively, in the Marxist driven public school system.

Judao-Christian religion, scripture, tradition, morality, religious expression, religious exercise and so forth are not strictly and, you might say, religiously censored, prohibited and even opposed in teaching in any home schools, private schools, parochial schools, in their homes or in any Churches, Temples or Synagogues. That sort of thing is done, solely and exclusively, in the Marxist driven public school system.

Pro-Marxist and anti-Capitalist bias is not taught American children in any home schools, private schools, parochial schools, from their homes or from their Churches, Temples or Synagogues. That sort of thing is done, solely and exclusively, in the Marxist driven public school system. That is where American history is taught in the most negative light possible, and Socialism is shown in the most positive light possible.

prop8_13_5-26-09Our so-called public schools are the only places in America where children are exposed to the false rantings of the Femi-Nazi movement, the Homo-Nazi movement and the Eco-Nazi movement. Well, actually, they might see quite a bit of that on TV today, too, and in the public media. Black children are taught to feel victimized, and white children are taught to feel perpetually guilty, in a false and biased racist America slant of American history.

All of this captive audience Marxist indoctrination happens only in American public schools.

Marxist Driven College Education.

213316660YCDPFI_fsThe ‘60s and ‘70s revolutionary, anti-war, hippy-freak, Woodstock generation, which was the first of several truly anti-American American generations, is now in charge of the American college campus. Yesterday’s hippy is today’s dean. They who led and participated in the sit-ins, love-ins, pot parties, orgies, bra burnings, draft card burnings, campus riots, ROTC building burnings, bombings and street-warfare are today’s Ivey League professors and talk-show celebrities.

scacWhatever else may be learned in the typical American university today, American and world history will be dripping with anti-American bias, and Socialism will be taught in the most positive light possible.

On the American college campus, flat out Communist disinformation has gone main-stream. It is the norm.

Even those graduates who are not infected with Marxism are often infected with what the late Jeane Kirkpatrick referred to as the Blame America First Syndrome in which America is always somehow seen to be the cause of whatever is bad in the world. The fact that we consume more than anyone else is grossly over-emphasized; the fact that we produce more than anyone else is forgotten. As is the fact that we export more than anyone else. If we have more than someone else, why, somehow that is unfair, and we owe it to someone else. When Marxism isn’t sinister, it is just silly, but always at the expense of America.

Marxist Driven Mainstream Media.

213316660YCDPFI_fsThese days I’m working as a local delivery driver, and I get to listen to talk radio quite a bit out on the road. I love to listen to Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Both of them seem to seek the truth and find it, quite regularly, and they always seem to hit the nail on the head, on whatever controversial topic they are discussing. Rush gets the preferred nod, as the most entertaining of the two, because of his wit. He is funny; he is always good for at least one good belly laugh every day, and sometimes he keeps me laughing through most of his show. This is good for me, these days, with who is running both houses of Congress and the White House, because sometimes I think if I didn’t laugh, I just might cry.

But both Sean and Rush have got something wrong, and it is their view of the mainstream media, which I have labeled the SLIMC. They feel that mainstream media journalists have missed the boat, are making themselves irrelevant, have failed in their duty, are going to be sorry, and so forth. But that is wrong. They know exactly what they are doing.

WALTER-CRONKITEThe SLIMC is every bit as Marxist as Obama is. I’ve been saying that ever since the Vietnam War. If any American profession today is more anti-American, on average, than the American teaching profession, it is American journalism, by an order of magnitude.

As described in several other pages on this site, Walter Cronkite may be the worst example of them all. Cronkite could have been and should have been investigated, charged, tried, convicted and executed for treason. The same could be said of John (did you know he served in Vietnam) Kerry, Hannoi-Jane Fonda and others, but Cronkite takes the highest “honor” because he was so trusted, and so believed, by so many. Cronkite, more than anyone else, is responsible for producing the first of several anti-American American generations. Cronkite, more than anyone else, as we said in the Vietnam War page, is responsible for the loss of the Vietnam War itself.

Other American journalists idolize Cronkite; he is the one they most seek to emulate; he is their hero. They hope one day, following his lead, to somehow destroy Capitalism, and Constitutional America along with it.
