(Reprinted from UTT Newsletter, July 16, 2020)

With all the turmoil going on in the world today I worry greatly about the future of America, your future, my kid’s future, my grandkids’ future.   How did we get to where we are today?  Such a lawless nation?  Where did the rule of law go?  Why is our nation in such a moral decline?  Why is our constitution being ignored and our rights being infringed upon?  Is it my fault?  Your fault?  Your teacher’s fault?  Society’s fault?  Is it a failing form of government?

I was out having lunch at a local restaurant where I saw a couple of policemen lunching with their wives. I was about finished my lunch and my wife was still working on her dessert. I got up and walked over until I was less than six feet away from the officer facing me. He looked up at me, our eyes met; I motioned to myself, to him and his friend and said, “We love you guys.” He gave me a big grin, a strong “thank you” and reached and shook my hand—a no-no these days. The other officer turned and offered his hand and I shook it.

With the specter of out of control Covid-19 increasing fear and economic ruin, and with the Black Lives Matter Movement (BLM) gaining national prominence—in addition to protests and violence in our streets, America is certainly living in interesting times.

For many on the Left, there is a feeling that the upheaval has been a long time coming; racial and economic disparity, along with police brutality against people of color, could no longer be tolerated.  Something had to give.  And it has.

Thomas Pain Quote

“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all His commands I will give  you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of Earth.  All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”

Deuteronomy 28:1-2  NIV  (Deuteronomy was George Washington’s favorite Book of the Bible).

These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated….

Socialism was being promoted in the U.S. long before Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected President and began implementing his socialist agendas. The national media, public education, university professors, politicians, the entertainment industry, and assorted propagandists continue to proclaim socialism the path to Utopia and capitalism the “Jack the Ripper” of economics.

Many have been led to believe Acts 2.44-47 in the Bible justifies a socialist economy, failing to understand believers in that passage voluntarily agreed to share their possessions equally – they were not forced to do so a socialist political state.

The Subversion of American Culture, History, and Government

In September 2016, I wrote an article on Black Lives Matter and the Muslim Brotherhood that has been getting a large number of recent internet hits. Hence, I can compare the Google articles of this week with those of nearly four years ago. According to the recent Google order and quantity of results, Black Lives Matter (BLM) has moved from an organization closely associated with orchestrated rioting, wanton destruction of private and public property, defamation of law enforcement officers, and Marxist ideology to a principled paragon of civic idealism seeking racial justice and reconciliation especially focusing on preventing police brutality toward blacks. Actually, the only things that have changed are that BLM in now lavishly financed by hundreds of naïve or bullied corporations, millions of utterly deceived idealists, and even more generously by George Soros and his civil rights front organizations. Doubtless, the Muslim Brotherhood still supports them. However, BLM is now one of the largest and richest organizations in the United States. They also have strong, mutually supportive relationships with the Democrat Party and its candidates. Their posh funding and connections have greatly improved their public relations image, although they are more dangerous and subversive than ever.
