OPINION: By Steven Lambert

POTUS Barack ObamaI’ve never understood the rationale of those who would willfully participate in a vast conspiracy and cover-up to deceive an entire nation, particularly when it concerns the Chief Executive Officer of the United States of America, the most powerful nation on the earth. But that is precisely what has been transpiring around the Beltway for five, ten, fifteen, twenty, or even more years with respect to the mental status of the nation’s president. A veritable throng of officials and bureaucrats of our federal government are complicit in the national conspiracy. The Watergate cover-up pales in terms of participants. In this one, thousands of the government employees who are paid with our tax dollars refuse to tell or talk about what they all know—that America’s CEO and Commander-in-Chief is mentally incapacitated.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance” (Psa. 33:12).

“If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” (Psa. 11:3)

“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” –John Adams, 2nd US President

In a recent article, concerning the second Scripture verse above, I wrote that they,

like Adams’ statement, contains a latent clue for any group of marauders possessing malevolent and self-aggrandizing intents how to set about subverting a free society for the purposes of vanquishing it—namely, dismantle and decimate its ideological and spiritual substructure.

America’s morality always has been and remains the unseen bedrock of its unrivaled, enduring success. But, that success always has had and will have its villainous enemies who are intent on obliterating it.

I followed that by a poignant quote from Karl Marx, “who today is revered by the multitudinous global disciples of his radical agenda for world-hegemony as ‘The Father of Communism,'” and whose “anti-God religion of narcissism-centric humanism (now) permeates every segment of the existing societies of the world”:

“My object in life is to dethrone God by deifying man.” –Karl Heinrich Marx, Father of Communism

I also wrote:

Thus, as Marx further prescribed in the writings comprising The Communist Manifesto…the only way the agenda of communism can succeed in any nation is that God and all religions ascribing belief in God be entirely eradicated from the collective psyche of its citizenry and thus every facet of the society of the targeted nation. Indeed, that whole long-term, systematic process is the primary critical element of communism–”socialization.” Continue reading “America, You Were Warned 50 Years Ago!” »

“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” –John Adams, 2nd US President

While acutely accurate, prescient, and even prophetic, this quote from one of the major contributors to the formation of the underlying ideology expressed in the two most seminal documents of the birth of our nation, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, contained, undoubtedly inadvertently, a cryptic key to any contingent of malevolent hegemonists dedicated to the objective of sabotaging the ideological foundations on which the greatest nation ever to exist in the annals of human nations are established that would subsequently arise.

Incontrovertibly, the single most critical component of the ideological underpinnings of American society is its Judeo-Christian morality, predicated on the Ten Commandments and elucidated throughout the Word of God. This is one of the most overlooked and underestimated facts concerning American society and government respecting their inimitable success over the test of time. At bottom, the Judeo-Christian moral code is predicated on and the essence of the very nature of God Himself, which accounts for both its indomitable authority and the reason it is the arch-nemesis of all prospective assailants intent on vanquishing a nation in which the Divine Laws scribed by the very hand of the Almighty on Tablets of Stone are its touchstone.

At a juncture in American history when the sitting president has revealed himself in obvious and undeniable ways to be an avowed Marxist with a belly filled with fiery ambitions of a would-be world-dictator, hell-bent on transforming the republican form of government that for nearly 240 years has well-served this, the greatest nation on Earth, into a totalitarian socialistic nanny state, the matter of legitimate versus illegitimate authority is being speedily forced to the top of public discourse. A plethora of political as well as social science experts and pundits agree that the United States of America at this hour stands at the threshold of collapse and utter ruin. It can hardly be mere coincidence that every segment of American society, from political to economical to ecclesiastical, is inundated with people driven by what Augustine called libido dominandi—lust for rule or dominion.

The scope of this article and the series it inaugurates is primarily leadership in the ecclesiastical realm. However, much, if not all, of the principles regarding legitimate and illegitimate authority—i.e., abuse of authority—addressed herein can also with some adaptation be applied to authority in any realm of society and human interaction.

There is a very thin line between leading and lording, discipling and dominating, coaching and coercing. So thin is the line, it is at times and in certain scenarios nearly indistinguishable. Continue reading “The Thin Line of Leadership (Part 1)” »

Why Do They Want Us To Believe The Tea Party Movement Is Dead?
By Mychal Massie

The Tea Party has been under attack since its inception. Republican hierarchy including, if not especially, Karl Rove, the NAACP, the mainstream media, and, of course, Democrats have found fault and condemned the Tea Party.

There were rumors that the Tea Party was no longer viable, that it was on life support, and that it was a damaged brand. Now in a Rasmussen poll released Monday, January 7, 2013, we are informed “the Republican backed Tea Party has reached its most unpopular level since its inception. Just three in 10 voters have a favorable view of the movement with half of the poll’s respondents said that they view the party ‘unfavorably.’” (http://www.examiner.com/article/tea-party-goes-overboard-polls; 1/8/13)

I have problems with these findings for several reasons; a couple of which I will share here. But, first things first. Continue reading “Is The Tea Party Dead?” »

The Republican Party, from its inception in 1856, has stood for conservative pro-family and pro-Constitutional values. Those values are what first drew me to the Republican Party and they are what have led me to be engaged in my unwavering support of same.

I have opposed those Republicans who support abortion, homosexual marriage, expanded government, increased spending and other political positions that others and I argue are antithetical to what our Party has long stood for.

But the Republican Party we have supported and fought for is no longer the same. We have elected candidates who have behaved – and supported policies – more in line with Democrats than those standards we expect from true Conservatives. And, specific to that point, we have paid dearly as a nation for it. Continue reading “Divorce May Be The Only Answer” »

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 his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

At the time Thomas Paine wrote those words, it looked like we would lose the American Revolution and some people were walking away because times were getting tough. By saying “These are the times that try [or test] men’s souls,” he was saying, “This is how we’ll see what your spirit is really made of. Do you leave when things look bad, or do you have the courage to stand up for what you believe in?”

Somehow these words seem apropos in this hour. Continue reading “These Are The Times That Try Men’s Souls” »

The election is over, the war is not, and we must understand that. It’s imperative we remain focused and energized. We must realize who our enemy is – what their end goal is and what they will do to accomplish same. There isn’t time for hand wringing, craziness, and/or loyalty to those responsible for the loss of this election.

The next two years are critical. As a close friend and colleague wrote this morning, for the next two years we must, “Fire and fall back. Inflict maximum damage on the enemy, but fall back on prepared positions, and repeat this process until reinforcements arrive.” Which include Benghazi, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare, and the economy.

This article is part 6 of 7 in the series Reclaiming Fatherhood and Restoring Fathers

[Preface]Many of you may know John MacArthur as an expository preacher you have heard on the radio or maybe you have read his books. What you might not know is John has been very apolitical. He has been so apolitical and anti-activist that he has even said the American Revolution was a sin because it was rebellion against God since God established the government, per Romans 13. He has also preached messages around the Fourth of July and the time to vote downplaying civic involvement, activism, and voting. I have made public offers to debate him on these issues but he has never agreed.

But now, it looks like he has had a new revelation. I encourage you to listen to this short message from John MacArthur. It is very good and right on point. It is startling to hear this message from him. I remember seeing John on Larry King Live after Dr. Falwell died and he was saying he was glad that this era represented by Dr. Falwell has passed. He was referring to preachers addressing political (as Dr. Falwell would instead say, Biblical and moral issues). But now, John appears to have had an epiphany. He makes some very profound statements in the message below. I am beginning to see more and more pastors waking up realizing that Biblical and moral issues are under attack and they have no choice but to speak. This isn’t politics, it is Biblical and moral issues that have been politicized. —Mathew Staver founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel[end Preface] Continue reading “Abortion and the Campaign for Immorality” »

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood….” (Lev. 17:11) The essence of human life is “in the blood.” As we all know from the flood of crime shows centering around CSI team techniques, the modern science of DNA analysis confirms and provides more context to the divine revelation Moses scribed thousands of years ago. The elements comprising life, including human life, are “in the blood.” As the Word of God so often signifies metaphorically, spiritual life is also in the Blood—the Blood of Christ!

In this article the author makes a metaphorical comparison about genuine faith that is obvious, when so stated, yet often not understood or overlooked in practical application. Faith is like the blood of life in every living being. All living beings have blood, which in the context of Moses’ words, is certainly no accident or coincidence, rather living beings are alive and living precisely because they have blood, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood.” Blood is liquid, and thus fluid, meaning it flows. In fact, the fluidity or flowing nature of blood is intrinsic to it being “life.” When blood stops flowing, death ensues, or is an indicator of the occurrence of death. So also, as the article author indicates, faith is fluid, it flows, it bleeds. And, thus, intrinsically, it cannot be contained, and more to the point of the article, it cannot be contained to the aspects of life to which agnostics, atheists, and nominal faith-people contend it should be. Faith, like blood, simply does not work that way. Blood flows into every corpuscle of the flesh of living beings, and if it isn’t, death quickly occurs in that part of the flesh where the blood-flow has ceased. Likewise, cut off the flow of faith in any part of human life, and spiritual death, along with all its consequences quickly ensues.

All this regarding the nature of faith is true in the case of politics as well. The notion that the DNA of genuine faith should or could be somehow excluded from a genuine believer in Christ’s thinking with respect to political matters, including the candidates they consider for elections, besides being a total practical impossibility, is a ludicrous and inane myth.

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels delivers the Republican Party’s response to President Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address, delivered last night, Tuesday, January 25, 2012.

Daniels: Greetings from the home of Super Bowl XLVI.

The status of loyal opposition imposes on those out of power some serious responsibilities: to show respect for the presidency and its occupant, to express agreement where it exists.

Republicans tonight salute our president, for instance, for his aggressive pursuit of the murderers of 9/11 and for bravely backing long overdue changes in public education. I personally would add to that list admiration for the strong family commitment that he and the first lady have displayed to a nation sorely needing such examples.

On these evenings, presidents naturally seek to find the sunny side of our national condition. But when President Obama claims that the state of our union is anything but grave, he must know in his heart that this is not true. Continue reading “GOP RESPONSE TO OBAMA SOTU ADDRESS” »

The centerpiece of this post is a prophetic message I delivered in December, 1989. The date of the delivery of the message is significant because the message predicted major governmental debacle and dismantling that would be occurring in many nations of the world, beginning with the U.S.S.R., and it was in November, 1989, that East Germany issued a decree for the Berlin Wall dividing free Berlin from Communist Berlin that had stood for 28 years to be opened to allow free ingress and egress between the East and West factions of the city. By the end of 1990 the wall was completely disassembled contemporaneously with the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe and in U.S.S.R., marking the end of the Cold War era. The historic opening of the Berlin Wall came only a little more than two years after President Ronald Reagan, who I believe was a political prophet anointed and appointed by God, “In a speech at the Brandenburg Gate commemorating the 750th anniversary of Berlin, by the Berlin Wall on June 12, 1987,”1 trumpeted the now infamous divinely-inspired prophetic decree, “Mr. Gorbachev, Tear down this wall!” Continue reading “God’s Perestroika!” »
