America is quickly loosing the respect of the American people as politicians routinely lie and cheat their way into office.
Most of those that end up going to Washington spend more time looking to sell their votes to their favorite corporate sponsor rather than representing their constituents. It’s not uncommon for these politicians to secure a comfy corporate job or board position after leaving public office through what’s known as a revolving door.
Examples of individuals who have moved between roles in this way in sensitive areas include former CFR Director and Vice President Dick Cheney (military contracting), Linda Fisher (pesticide and biotech), Philip Perry (homeland security), Pat Toomey, Dan Coats, John C. Dugan, a Department of the Treasury official in the administration of President George H. W. Bush who pressed for banking deregulation and repeal of Glass-Steagall Act, then as counsel to the American Bankers Association lobbied for the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 repealing key provisions of the Glass-Steagall Act, and then starting in 2005 returned in a senior government role as Comptroller of the Currency, and former FCC commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker (media lobbying). High-profile Democratic Representative Dick Gephardt left office to become a lobbyist and his lobbying agency, Gephardt Government Affairs Group, earned close to $7 million in revenues in 2010 from clients including Goldman Sachs, Boeing, Visa Inc., Ameren Corporation, and Waste Management Inc.
Presidential elections today are no longer about issues important to the citizens, the best person for the job or what’s best for the country.
They are about 30-second sound bites, focus groups, polls, and telling the American people what they want to hear. In recent years, technology has magnified their capability to deliver a steady stream of carefully controlled and scripted propaganda.
George and Barbara Bush were well known for their use of the satellite tour for making news from the Whitehouse. Using this technique, they were able to personalize and target messages for specific geographic target markets across the country while bypassing the national TV networks, feeding their messages to satellites above the earth straight from the Whitehouse TV studio.
Bill Clinton was perhaps the first politician to really master the managing of the media for his purposes.
Huge multinational corporations like Acxiom, Oracle Data Cloud, Epsilon, and a host of other data analytic marketing companies have sprung up collecting and indexing just about everything you do. Folks, these are examples of the “scientific technological elite” President Eisenhower warned us about in 1961, only on a more mature, refined, and effective level.
One such company, Cambridge Analytica boasts about their ability to combine over 5,000 pieces of data that they can collect on any given individual – from what airlines they’ve flown on to what magazines they’re subscribed to and everything else you can possibly imagine – to help create “psychographic” profiles of that person.
Donald Trump turned to these data analytic professionals in designing parts of his 2016 presidential campaign. The London-based data firm Cambridge Analytica was reportedly testing out slogans like “Drain the Swamp” and “Build the Wall” as early as 2014 according to Business Insider.
Apparently, the imagery of draining the swamp appealed to some inner subconscious feeling held by many conservative voters. But, Trump has not “drained the swamp”… he has only replaced one set of swamp creatures with another set. Certainly, “Build the Wall” fed a sense of nationalism in the minds of many and tapped into a feeling of “security”. Will the wall ever be built? I doubt it. Sure, there will be stretches along the Mexico/US border with new barriers built, but it’s reasonably impractical to wall off the entire southern border. And the slogan, “Lock Her Up” may appeal to the anger felt by many Americans over the unjust legal system with its two-tier system of justice, yet, Hillary Clinton still walks the streets a free person.
The Great Hack
The Great Hack uncovers the dark world of data exploitation through the compelling personal journeys of players on different sides of the explosive Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data scandal.
Low Information Voters
Very few Americans even have the vaguest idea of how the election process works.
Instead, a TV-educated, dumb downed, uninformed American public is led to the polls by a sophisticated propaganda machine to cast their vote for the hand-picked corporate candidate as if it were for the high-school prom king and queen.
In 2000, while the media and much of America focused on butterfly-ballots and elderly voters who cannot complete a ballot, beneath the surface was brewing yet another incremental attack on the Constitution of the United States of America by Collectivists determined to quietly overthrow this country from within. As politicians and lawyers descend upon Florida for hand recounts upon recounts, Americans were fed a daily dose of propaganda designed to sway them away from the Constitutionally established norm of electing Presidents in this country.
2020 Democrat Presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, and other Democrats want to abolish the Electoral College… yes strike out Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. “Every vote matters, and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College.” – Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
Electronic Voter Fraud
The election process has been corrupted by the establishment in their efforts to bypass the legitimate counting of ballots. With computerized voting systems from Diebold and others that don’t work to outright voter fraud, today the winning politician is more likely to be the one predetermined to win the office by the powers that be. BlackBoxVoting.org is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan elections watchdog group that has documented hundreds of voting irregularities.
One example of a clear indication of fraud was the 2008 primaries in Texas. We are expected to believe that McCain won Texas in a landslide. What I find seriously hard to believe is this: Ron Paul got 70% of the vote in his district for Congress—–37,220 votes. In that same district, they want us to believe he only got 6,697 votes for president. That equates to almost ONLY 1 in 5 people that voted for him for Congress supported him for President. They can’t be serious. You mean to tell me that 37,000 got out to vote for him for Congress, but only 6,700 for President??! No Way!
Does Character Matter?
America’s slide into depravity can be demonstrated in the fact that exit polls in recent presidential elections showed that even those who voted for a candidate did not trust them or believe they were telling the truth. What they did believe was that their candidate was good for their wallet and therefore, character did not matter.
Our leaders thus become a reflection of what America is becoming; immoral, self-centered, self-deceived, and depraved. The Bible describes the process in Romans 1:20-32:
Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things he has made. So they are without excuse; for though they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools; and they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling a mortal human being or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the degrading of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things that should not be done. They were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. They know God’s decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die–yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practice them.
As has been their method for years, Fabian Socialists understand that they will not be able to radically change this country over night.
Rather, theirs is a step-by-step incremental approach of first undermining the foundations of this country by creating doubt and distrust supported by an activist court busy rewriting the Constitution of the United States.
To help move their efforts forward, these collectivists have used numerous so-called crises to persuade Americans to set aside their liberty in exchange for supposed security.
Is this something new? Hardly!
The Socialist influenced Courts have systematically been disassembling the U.S. Constitution – one line and one amendment at a time.
The Socialist attack on the U.S. Constitution began as early as 1913 when the Constitutionally established right to coin money in the U.S. was turned over to the privately held banks (Federal Reserve) and a system of taxation was established to ensure the poverty of most Americans. Since then, rights once guaranteed to Americans by the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments of the Constitution have been stripped from the population. The right to life of unborn babies has been denied them by the courts, the right to pray to their creator God has been denied young Americans in schools across the country. The right to peaceably demonstrate has been denied abortion protesters. The right to a fair and speedy trial has been denied to minority groups of all races. And, the list goes on and on.
American politics has been defined by a Left/Right paradigm for years.
It’s been Liberals versus Conservatives, Pro-Life versus Pro-Choice, Tax Cuts vs. More Spending, Pro-War vs Peaceniks, Environmental Protections vs. Economic Growth, Pro-Union vs. Union-Free, Gay Marriage vs. Family Values, School Choice vs. Public Schools, Regulation vs. Free Markets, and on and on. In fact, when it comes to their actions instead of their words, there is very little difference between the left and right. They are simply two sides of the same coin owned by multi-national corporations and international bankers.
Open your eyes! Because everything you have taken for granted will soon be gone if you don’t begin to do something about it.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
Christians in Politics
American politics is no longer about Democrats, Republicans, or Independents …
It’s not a fight between the Liberal Left and the Christian Right …
It is all about WHAT America is.
“…the time has come that Christians must vote for honest men,
and take consistent ground in politics…” — Charles Finney
Liberal activists would have us believe our founding fathers were terrified at the prospect of Christians participating in the political process. This led them, we’re told, to establish a wall of separation between church and state. But no such provision appears in the Constitution or any of the foundational documents. The principle is found only in one of Thomas Jefferson’s letters, and referred, not to the exclusion of religious people from government, but to the protection of religion from governmental interference. Nonetheless, this distorted view of our Constitution has become the battle standard for those who loathe America.
Those who believe they can be their own god and hate any Christian concept of God have decided that anyone who disagrees with them are extremist cultists and should have no voice in the government that is supposed to restrain them.
There is clear evidence in recent years of a deliberate, calculated effort to isolate Christians from the rest of the culture by spreading fear and distrust. Led by the ACLU, new agers, one-worlders, feminists, homosexuals, liberal churches, Communists, fascist corporations, and godless politicians, an all out War on Christianity has been declared.
Anyone professing faith in Jesus Christ and declaring the Bible to be the infallible Word of God is their enemy.
Ironically, those protesting the loudest against “hate”, “intolerance” and “bigotry” are usually the first ones to practice hate, intolerance and bigotry toward Christians. If a Christian has the audacity to express their beliefs in the public sphere, they are labelled “Right Wing Extremists” and every effort is made to shut them up or at least the minimize the effect of their expression.
Dictators, tyrants, and other opponents of the truth have never wanted churches and Christians to interfere with their plans. Who can forget the German Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels who said, “Churchmen dabbling in politics should take note that their only task is to prepare for the world hereafter.”
Is that not the same message we hear today from liberals wanting to remove Christians from the political process?
