Welcome to the ongoing war between good and evil in the United States of America. Between those who choose to follow God's Laws and Commandments and the country's Constitution, and those who are at war with God. Oh!

Netflix has gone too far with this one. … God will not bless a nation that derives entertainment at His expense.[Editors Note: If there is not God, then a series like this would not matter. But there is and it does. The Biblical term used that could be applied to Netflix is fool.] (Netflix complaint board is difficult to use.) -

Diabolical Disorientation -
"This is a diabolical disorientation invading the world and misleading souls! It is necessary to stand up to it; and for this purpose you can use what I tell you here. . . "
"The devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls."
"Thus the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God because in this way, the devil will succeed in leaving the souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them."

The Family is the Battlefield in a Great Spiritual War -
There is a prophecy by Sister Lucia dos Santos, of Fatima, which concerns “the final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan”. The battlefield is the family. Life and the family. -
Free speech was founded some 2,000 years ago in a cradle in Bethlehem. It was not created on the coast of California. Free speech is grounded in the words, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” Free speech was emblazoned across many a library and many universities. In the words of truth, in the words of Christ, “Truth Shall Set You Free.”
And the irony is that Berkeley has a Biblical motto. They may not know it, but their motto, their very official motto at Berkeley is, “Let there be light.” A reference to Scripture being the guiding light of a free society.
You can have no freedom without fences, you cannot have any liberty without law. You don’t get light unless you have illumination that’s objective, and permanent, and immutable, and true. Berkeley grounds it’s freedom in the truth of Christ and the truth of Scripture without knowing it. And when they abandon it they get fascism, not freedom, they get tyranny when they abandon truth …
Dartmouth, and Princeton, and Yale, and Harvard, every institution in the Ivy league except one was grounded in a Biblical worldview, explicitly. Explicitly by virtue of their charter, their founding documents, their motto, and their charge. And we know this across the land that there is a repeated reference, a Biblical worldview as the context for true liberty.

I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Mohammed. ... So far as I can see, it is the principle cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world

Limbaugh: Political left operates like radical Islam -
For the kind of Islamists we’re talking about, the Shariah Islamists, there is no authority but Islam.
To the left, there is no authority but themselves. They respect and recognize no other authority.
They don’t recognize the authority of elections.
They don’t recognize the authority of public opinion.
They don’t recognize the authority of the Constitution, even though they all swear an oath.
In America, Limbaugh explained, government officials are required to swear an oath to the U.S. Constitution because “that’s the glue that keeps everything together.” …
“[T]hat is supposed to be the compact that unites all of us,” he said. “Winning or losing, we are united as Americans, defined by our Constitution. Swearing the oath announces the understandings based on which we become ‘We, the People.'”
But if America sees a massive movement that rejects and undermines the Constitution, that unity comes into serious question
Of course, Shariah Islam is never gonna accept the U.S. Constitution. The American left doesn’t, either, when it goes against them. -
"It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with powe; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go ... In questions of power, then let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."

“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.”

Matt Walsh: Christians, our true battle is spiritual, not political -
he first liberal was named Lucifer. He was an angel. He lived in Heaven millennia ago, before modern times, before ancient times, before time itself. He could still be there today if that’s what he’d chosen, but in his absurd and insatiable pride he would not bend his knee to the supreme will of God.
Non serviam. “I will not serve,” he said, wanting to love only himself. …
It was this philosophy that led to the Fall of Man, when Adam and Eve succumbed to the temptations of the serpent and attempted to make themselves equal to God.
It was the philosophy behind every act of human evil throughout history, at the bottom of every atrocity. …
Christians must understand that it is the Devil himself we are battling, not just Democrats. What makes this thing we call “modern liberalism” so dangerous is that it is not modern at all. It is nothing but the contemporary manifestation of an ancient evil. It is the current label we’ve given to the religion of self-

Why Democracy Works in the United States of America -
Without any hesitation, he said, “Yeah, I had no idea how critical religion is to the functioning of democracy. The reason why democracy works, it’s not because the government is designed to oversee what everybody does. But rather, democracy works because most people, most of the time, voluntarily choose to obey the law. And in your past, most Americans attended a church or synagogue every week. And they were taught there by people who they respected.”
My friend went on to say that Americans follow these rules because they had come to believe that they weren’t just accountable to society, they were accountable to God. My Chinese friend heightened his concern that as religion loses its influence over the lives of Americans, what will happen to our democracy? Where are the institutions that are going to teach the next generation that they too need to voluntarily choose to obey the laws? Because if you take away religion, you can’t hire enough police.” -

“As the culture war is about irreconcilable beliefs about God and man, right and wrong, good and evil, and is at root a religious war, it will be with us so long as men are free to act on their beliefs.

Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies Psalm 35 RSV
A Psalm of David.
35 Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
fight against those who fight against me!
Take hold of shield and buckler,
and rise for my help!
Draw the spear and javelin
against my pursuers!
Say to my soul,
“I am your deliverance!”
Let them be put to shame and dishonor
who seek after my life!
Let them be turned back and confounded
who devise evil against me!
Let them be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them on!
Let their way be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them!
For without cause they hid their net for me;
without cause they dug a pit[a] for my life.
Let ruin come upon them unawares!
And let the net which they hid ensnare them;
let them fall therein to ruin!
Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord,
exulting in his deliverance.
All my bones shall say,
“O Lord, who is like thee,
thou who deliverest the weak
from him who is too strong for him,
the weak and needy from him who despoils him?”
Malicious witnesses rise up;
they ask me of things that I know not.
They requite me evil for good;
my soul is forlorn.
But I, when they were sick—
I wore sackcloth,
I afflicted myself with fasting.
I prayed with head bowed[b] on my bosom,
as though I grieved for my friend or my brother;
I went about as one who laments his mother,
bowed down and in mourning.
But at my stumbling they gathered in glee,
they gathered together against me;
cripples whom I knew not
slandered me without ceasing;
they impiously mocked more and more,[c]
gnashing at me with their teeth.
How long, O Lord, wilt thou look on?
Rescue me from their ravages,
my life from the lions!
Then I will thank thee in the great congregation;
in the mighty throng I will praise thee.
Let not those rejoice over me
who are wrongfully my foes,
and let not those wink the eye
who hate me without cause.
For they do not speak peace,
but against those who are quiet in the land
they conceive words of deceit.
They open wide their mouths against me;
they say, “Aha, Aha!
our eyes have seen it!”
Thou hast seen, O Lord; be not silent!
O Lord, be not far from me!
Bestir thyself, and awake for my right,
for my cause, my God and my Lord!
Vindicate me, O Lord, my God, according to thy righteousness;
and let them not rejoice over me!
Let them not say to themselves,
“Aha, we have our heart’s desire!”
Let them not say, “We have swallowed him up.”
Let them be put to shame and confusion altogether
who rejoice at my calamity!
Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor
who magnify themselves against me!
Let those who desire my vindication
shout for joy and be glad,
and say evermore,
“Great is the Lord,
who delights in the welfare of his servant!”
Then my tongue shall tell of thy righteousness
and of thy praise all the day long.

Why is there an alliance between radical Islam – expansionist, Shariah Islam – and the left, which you’d think are two opposing utopian systems? Because they’re all at war with the same real God.”

“I wanted my writing of history and my teaching of history to be a part of social struggle,” Zinn remarks in an interview conducted long after the release of A People’s History of the United States. “I wanted to be a part of history and not just a recorder and teacher of history. So that kind of attitude towards history, history itself as a political act, has always informed my writing and my teaching.” Indeed it has. Only let’s not call it history. Howard Zinn is a master of cheap Marxist propaganda. His book is a dagger aimed at the heart the country that has given him more freedom than most of the writers who have ever written and made him a millionaire in the process. -

When America became independent, it was no longer covered by the British extortion tribute payment to the Muslim pirates. Morocco “recognized” the United States in 1785 by capturing two American ships and holding the sailors for ransom.
Jefferson read the Qur’an, not out of admiration but to understand why Muslims were attacking Americans unprovoked.
The word Islam means submission to Allah, and a Muslim is one who has submitted to Allah. Islam believes there will be world peace when the whole world submits to the will of Allah. Islam is a religion of peace, it is just the Islamic definition of “peace” is different. To someone raised in Western Civilization, “peace” is different groups getting along. In Islam, “peace” is when everyone is submitted to Allah. To a fundamental Muslim, “world peace” means “world Islam.” … -

Christians obliterated slavery. Christians obliterated Jim Crow. Modern slavery is largely perpetrated by Muslims. Modern Jim Crow is certainly perpetrated by Muslims under Sharia law. …
Sorry, Mr. President, but there is absolutely no moral equivalency with your comparison.

George Barna on the 2017 electrion results
"So we've got to rethink what we do with a media that is intent on turning America socialist. What we do with the media that will lie and steal and cheat in order to get their preferred candidates elected to office?
Everybody sitting here, the fact that you got elected is a miracle. You may not have had to deal with the national mainstream media the way that Mr. Trump did. But still you're dealing with a lot of the distortions that the media have planted in the minds and hearts of the people even those who voted for you.
If we believe in truth, we have to rethink what do we do with the media that does not believe in truth? A media that by and large is continually teaching a postmodern world view to Americans. One that says, "Truth is what you make it. Truth is what you personally decide it will be. There is no objective truth that's right for everybody."
I can tell you from our research with millennials more and more believe that because they are such a media saturated generation and because there is very little push back to that postmodern teaching. They're behind that lock stock and barrel. Which is going to make it harder and harder for our younger conservative candidates to ever get elected to anything.
As I look at the future of America this to me is if not the single biggest issue that we have to address, it certainly is one of them. This is Satan's great tool for distorting the American heart and mind. … The reality is that, particularly our younger people, are moving more toward a socialist perspective. That's what they've been taught in schools. That's what their discussions are in social media and so forth. So we have to address that.”

"…imperialistic Communism. It has infiltrated into positions of public trust and responsibility -
It seeks through covert manipulation of the civil power and the media of public information and education to pervert the truth, impair respect for moral values, suppress human freedom and representative government, and in the end destroy our faith in our religious teachings.
This evil force, with neither spiritual base nor moral standard, rallies the abnormal and subnormal elements among our citizenry and applies internal pressure against all things we hold descent and all things that we hold right …
There can be no compromise with atheistic Communism, no half way in the preservation of freedom and religion. It must be all or nothing. We must unite in the high purpose that the liberties etched upon the design of our life by our forefathers be unimpaired and that we maintain the moral courage and spiritual leadership to preserve inviolate that mighty bulwark of all freedom, our Christian faith."

The present administration has labored to strike down the standards and order ordained by God concerning man and woman and marriage, not only within these borders, but around the world.”
… Given all this, Cahn suggested it is not surprising God “intervened” to essentially nullify Obama’s entire legacy. Yet this does not mean America is saved. The election is not the answer, Cahn said, but a window in which the answer can come. America is being given a chance.. …-

“The injuries of Satan are outside the control of clinical medicine,” he continued. “People who live with permanent diarrhea and nothing makes it go away; people who have eye pain and ophthalmologists find nothing. These are injuries that science does not detect.”

The Promise of American Renewal -
Who Invited God to the Inauguration? -
Washington’s inaugural address emphasized the miraculous nature of the American Revolution. He stressed, “No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States.” He added that some “token of providential agency” seemed to play a role in the country’s independence. …
The American inaugural, Rabbi Sacks suggests, “the United States is the only country today whose political discourse is framed by the idea of covenant,” a biblical compact in which a nation dedicates itself to a series of principles in the presence of God. The American inaugural, Rabbi Sacks suggests, is often a moment of American covenant renewal, a rededication to founding ideals.
Washington’s first inauguration was the only time Americans were essentially united behind a new president. Since then, the start of a new administration means that millions of Americans are unhappy with the electorate’s decision. Yet Washington showed that an American inauguration, unlike a monarch’s coronation, is less a celebration of the new head of state than of the U.S. system of government and the divine blessings bestowed upon it. -
Full text of President Donald Trump's inauguration speech -
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come. …Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.
Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.
Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.
The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.
It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.
This is your day. This is your celebration.
And this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
Everyone is listening to you now.
You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.
At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.
Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.
These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.
But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
We are one nation – and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.
The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.
For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;
Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;
We've defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;
And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.
We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.
One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.
But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.
We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.
From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.
From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.
We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.
I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.
We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.
When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”
We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.
When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.
There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected.
We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.
Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.
In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.
We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.
The time for empty talk is over.
Now arrives the hour of action.
Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.
We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.
We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.
It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.
And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.
So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:
You will never be ignored again.
Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.
Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.
We Will Make America Wealthy Again.
We Will Make America Proud Again.
We Will Make America Safe Again.
And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America.
Is God in Control? -
"When we rid ourselves of any lingering suspicion that evil somehow fits into the eternal purposes of God, we are more inclined to do something about it. Jesus spent his entire ministry revolting against the evil he confronted. He never suggested that any of the physical or spiritual afflictions he confronted somehow fit into his Father's plan. Rather, he confronted these things as coming from the Devil and carried out the Father's plan by healing people and delivering them. We who are Christ's disciples should follow our Master's lead. We are to pray that the Father's will would be done (Matt. 6:10), not accept things as though his will was already being done!"
Archbishop Sheen On Death Of Christendom -
"There are three classes of people today: wise men, knaves, and fools. Wise men mean to do good and they do it. Knaves mean to do evil and they do it. The fools will do right or wrong depending on which is the more popular. And they are divided into white fools and black fools. The white fools would rather do right but will do wrong if it's popular. And the black fools would rather do wrong but will do right if that's the more popular. Now this is the situation we're in today and this is one of the basic causes of our degeneration. We're dying."
— Fulton J. Sheen (1895-

“The Big Evil” -
The “Big Evil” is a variation on that tactic:
If a government or other institution commits a profoundly evil or immoral act with great fanfare or public knowledge, people would normally tend to react in horror. They would speak out and find ways to confront it.
But suppose a profoundly evil or immoral act was done methodically and with no unusual commotion -
That psychological tactic has a powerful effect on a community or a nation. It instills a fear among people to say anything. Instead, people get a sense that maybe the authorities are right and that their gut feelings were misplaced. After all, these are the people in trusted positions. How could they possibly that wrong, or evil? …
This “Big Evil” technique was used effectively by Lenin and Stalin, as documented in “The Gulag Archipelago” and similar works, and also by Mao Tse-
The Dark Art of Political Intimidation -
“ … The problem of abortion. The culture of death. The contempt for human life. The devil must jump for joy when he hears all this because he is a liar and a murderer from the beginning. … The devil, and his minions now being massively in control of the media. Most of the means of social communication. Media moral corruption will remain the order of the day. And don't think that your family, you loved ones, your kids will somehow be protected, sheltered from it all, without extraordinary valiance, extortionary graces … combined at time with tough love. …. Right now, the prince of this world is having his hour. He is firmly in control of America pop culture. … The devil is having his hour, but don't forget that God is going to have His day. The day of the Lord .… as scripture says that the devil knows his time is short. So, make sure your you keep your soul in a state for grace. Be winning side. … just about every family has been wounded in the moral meltdown, the devils rampage in our time.”

Many Catholics, both clergy and lay, have supported the Democratic Party’s devotion to the social welfare state. It is time to reexamine that alliance in the cold clear light of a deracinated party cut off from its Judaic and Christian roots. If thy voting hand offends thee cut it off. And if you value your votes, cast those pearls no more at the feet of moral and intellectual swine -
