The creepy optics of Joe Biden’s “Soul of America” speech at Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA, September 1, 2022.

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard

This week, I was going to continue with my series on likening living under the Biden Regime to living under Queen Athaliah of Judah, another example of a usurper of power, and the lessons Christians can take from that Biblical account. 

I say, I was going to continue with it this week, until Joe Biden came along and gave what is, in my opinion, probably the most disturbing and tyrannical speech ever given by an American President.  Certainly, it’s the most disturbing and tyrannical speech I personally have ever heard from a man in that office.    

In some ways, this piece really is a part of the series on Athaliah.  But in my mind, the content of Biden’s speech is that I think it falls more naturally under the heading of another, recurring series of posts I’ve been writing called Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion (RR&R).  The RR&R series attempts to link the socialist, authoritarian, anti-Constitutional, globalist ideas and corruption found so prevalently in the Democratic party with the fact that this same party is, and has been since well back into the 19th century, the political home of the papal Antichrist in the United States of America. 

The fact that the Democrats were the party of Antichrist was recognized by writers in the 19th century, and most famously expressed by Presbyterian minister and Union Civil War veteran Dr. Samuel D. Burchard, who in 1884 uttered the line at the top of this post, calling the Democrats, “the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.”

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard

Last week brought with it a couple of major events, neither one of them good for America.  In the first place, there was the passage of the comically, propagandistically names Inflation Reduction Act, an Act guaranteed to increase, not decrease inflation.  Not to mention an Act that sics 87,000 new IRS agents on the American people – more specifically, it sics them on the middle class and small businesses that don’t have the legions of tax lawyers and accountants to fight back against the IRS – an Act that implements parts of the liberty destroying, World Economic Forum, Vatican approved Green New Deal, and an Act that manages to extend Obamacare subsidies passed as part of Covid relief.   

In short, it’s another unconstitutional boondoggle that will do exactly the opposite of what it claims it will do. 

Then there’s the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago.  Many writers have rightly compared this raid to the sort of thing one would expect in a banana republic.  Given the disturbing trend of both the Democrats generally, and the Biden Regime in particular, to politicize justice, this raid must be seen as a continuation of their attempts to outlaw their political opponents. 

One can find many articles in the mainstream and even alternate conservative and libertarian press denouncing both the Inflation Reduction Act and the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  But none of them, in this writer’s opinion, get to the heart of the matter.

Cardinal Michael Czerney, SJ blesses a replica of Angels Unawares on Loyola University in Chicago on 9/19/2021. The original is in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican and was commissioned by Pope Francis. The main purpose of the sculpture appears to be that of guilting Western nations into destroying themselves with welfare migrants, in order to advance the Roman Catholic Church-States goal of world government.

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

The Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) has always hated the United States of America and has relentlessly sought to subvert and destroy it.

Americans in the 19th century understood this well as evidenced by the many books published by American authors during that century warning people of the dangers Rome posed to the American republic.    

If you go a Google Books, you can find a remarkable number of books, nearly all of them forgotten, written by American authors in the 19th century on the threat that growing Roman Catholic political power posed to the liberties of the American people.  Here are a few examples:

And just as these books and their authors have largely been forgotten by 21st century Americans, so too has the threat of “political Romanism” been forgotten by them. 

Today, one rarely hears any complaint by American Protestants about the baleful influence of Roman Catholic economic and political thought on our republic.  In his masterful book Ecclesiastical Megalomania, John Robbins wrote about the hesitance of non-Catholic scholars to research and criticize the RCCS.   

Perhaps it is the fear of being labeled “anti-Catholic” that has dissuaded non-Catholic scholars from writing about the Church-State – a fear that undermines all scholarship.  Scholars, apparently more solicitous of their academic reputations than of learning itself, have shied away from studies such as this.  Perhaps there are other, more legitimate, reasons, such as the excessive secrecy of the papacy.  But whatever the reason, the Roman institution has not received the attention and scrutiny it deserves from American scholars (10-11).

Rather than opposing the false philosophy and theology of the RCCS, 20th and 21st century Protestants went out of their way to find common ground with the Antichrist papacy and his Babylonian Harlot church.  Today, one is more likely to hear putatively Protestant ministers praise the pope as a brother in Christ than to hear them denounce him as Antichrist.  Rome hasn’t changed.  It’s still a false church, teaching a false gospel of a false Christ who saves no one.  But Protestants have changed.  And not for the better. 

It’s almost as if we have become ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Justification by Belief Alone, which our forefathers preached boldly but which we seem to fear articulating, or not to even understand.

When Protestants should be rebuking, correcting and refuting the errors of Antichrist – and by Antichrist, I mean the office of the papacy; all popes are Antichrist in that they occupy the office of Antichrist; recent examples of papal Antichrists include Pius XII, of whom we will have more to say shortly, John Paul II, Benedict the XVI and the current papal Antichrist, Francis I – instead they are taking their theological cues from him, offering their congregations little more than warmed-over Romanism with a sprinkling of Evangelical fairy dust to fool the people in the pews into thinking their ideas are somehow Biblical.

But lest we get too far afield in this short post. Let me get to the main point for today, which is to talk about Rome’s bogus World Day of Migrants and Refugees (WDMF).

Jesuits Push Mass Migration While America’s Southern Border Burns Down    

Can anything good come from Chicago?  Although I’m sure there are Christians in Chicago, that city has a remarkable penchant for being ground zero for some of the most anti-American ideas and movements one can find. 

Take this recent headline, for example, “The Archdiocese of Chicago to Observe national Migration Week, Sept. 20 – 26, 2021.”

Chicago, (Sept. 20, 2021) – In observance of National Migration Week, Sept. 20 – 26, 2021, Archdiocese of Chicago parishes and its Immigration Ministry will host events celebrating Chicagoland’s diverse Catholic community. This year’s National Migration Week theme is “Towards an Ever Wider ‘We’.”

“The Holy Father’s theme of widening the ‘we’ comes at a time when so many migrants and refugees are seeking humanitarian aid, protections and resettlements from violence, war, repeated natural disasters and climate change-induced droughts and famine during a surging global pandemic,” said Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, archbishop of Chicago. “As he emphasizes in his encyclical letter Fratelli Tutti, we should think no longer in terms of ‘them’ and ‘those,’ but only as ‘us’. Our Church’s universality calls us to cultivate and celebrate community and diversity and to be companions for those seeking safe havens.”

This is a jaw-dropping headline.  At a time when America is in the throes of perhaps the worst migrant crisis in our history, a crisis deliberately caused by our illegitimate, Roman Catholic president Joe Biden, the Archdiocese of Chicago wants to celebrate the very thing the RCCS is using to burn down America as if the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 were something the Archdiocese sees as a model for the whole country. 

In a story connected with the Chicago Archdiocese’s “celebration” of the destruction of the United States by mass welfare migration, Jesuit Cardinal Michael Czerny, “blessed the Angels Unawares sculpture on Sunday at noon at Loyola University’s Damen Student Center on the Lake Shore Campus.”

Worth noting is that the Angels Unawares statue blessed by the Jesuit Cardinal is a replica of a statue commissioned by Antichrist Pope Francis in 2019.  As the story notes, “It’s the first sculpture added to the Vatican’s famed St. Peter’s Square in 400 years.”

Now let’s ask a question, is there a connection between the migrant crisis on America’s southern border, the WDMF, and the in-your-face celebration of the WDMF by the Archdiocese of Chicago.  The answer is, I am persuaded, yes. 

Earlier in this post, I mentioned Pope Pius XII.  This Antichrist, subject of the book Hitler’s Pope – not many people today are aware of this, but the Nazi Party was a principally a Roman Catholic movement; Hitler himself served as an acolyte in the Roman Catholic Church and attended Dominican high school, where he was first introduced to the Swastika – was the author of the 1952 Apostolic Constitution Exsul Familia (the Emigree Family), which has served ever since as Rome’s template for promoting mass, welfare migration for the purpose of subverting nation-states, strengthening the RCCS, and ushering in Rome’s dream of world government. 

That Exsul Familia is a tissue of nonsense doesn’t seem to matter.  It gives the appearance of piety, and that’s enough to persuade many people, both inside and outside the RCCS of the document’s righteousness.  In short, the argument of Exsul Familia is that since Joseph was warned in a dream to take Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt to get away from the murderous King Herod, it’s okay for migrants from Haiti to barge into America and demand taxpayers pick up the tab for their room, board and anything else they may happen to want. 

There are several obvious objections to this line of reasoning.  First, when Joseph took his family to Egypt, he was fleeing to another province of the Roman Empire, not to a foreign country.  Second, the Scriptures remain silent as to how the family was supported.  There was no welfare state, so either they supported themselves or perhaps were taken in by the Jewish community living in Egypt.  Third, the scale of the migration is entirely different.  Where in the New Testament we see a family of three fleeing to Egypt, today we’re talking about thousands, hundreds of thousands or more.  A more appropriate example of mass migration in the Bible is the Exodus.  And in the history of the Exodus, we see that Moses was extremely careful not to impose upon the land and resources of established nations. 

In Numbers 20 we read,

Now Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom…We will not pass through fields or vineyards, nor will we drink water from wells; we will go along the King’s Highway; we will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left until we have passed through your territory.   

Unlike the RCCS and its cardinals, bishops, priests, and nuns, Moses respected the property of others and did not see it as or as Israel’s right to barge into another nation’s territory and take their stuff.  That would be stealing.  And stealing is prohibited in the Ten Commandments.    

But Rome constantly and unctuously lectures Americans and the citizens of other Western nations that they have an altruistic moral duty to destroy their countries on behalf of migrants when no such duty exists. 

Contrary to the false economics of Rome, need is not only not the sole moral criterion of ownership, but it is not a criterion at all.  The American people owe nothing, nada, zip, zilch to Haitians.  Now, if Christians wish out to help Haitians by giving their own time and money in the name of Jesus Christ – Christian charity is always done in the name of Jesus Christ, see Matthew 10:42 – that’s one thing.  But Rome has contempt, as do socialists of all stripes, for private charity.  Rome believes in government welfare, where the civil government, contrary to the Bible and to the Constitution, steals money from the American people and lavishes it on foreign migrants, many if not most of whom are in this country contrary to American law.   

Rome’s WDMR is a bogus attempt to guilt the wealthy nations of the West into surrendering their sovereignty due to an imagined duty to give their wealth to foreigners when no such duty exists.  This canard is a lie of Antichrist in an attempt to cover his lust for world power and dominion with a veneer of pseudo-Christion ethics.   

Joe Biden, Servant of Antichrist

It is no accident that America’s greatest migrant crisis is happening on Joe Biden’s watch.  Joe Biden, America’s second Roman Catholic president appears to be enthusiastically carrying out the destruction of the United States by means of mass migration and doing so at the behest of Antichrist Pope Francis.

But as bad as Joe Biden is, he still isn’t going far enough for the taste of the of Rome’s many American migration madmen. 

In a letter signed by 164 Catholic organizations – 164! – many in the RCCS expressed their outrage that Biden was not moving fast enough to destroy America as they think he should.  They think it’s a “travesty” that Biden is summarily deporting people from nations who have a high incidence of disease using Title 42 to do so.  Apparently, these treasonous organizations of the RCCS have no problem exposing Americans to communicable diseases so long as they can oversee the importation of more Romanists and other non-Christian, illegal migrants into America.  It’s almost as if they’re paraphrasing King Jehu of Israel and saying, “Joe Biden serves Antichrist a little, but we shall serve him much!”

Perhaps Joe Biden’s concession to immigration sanity is the political nature of his position.  Things have gotten so bad that on the immigration issue that even people who normally don’t pay much attention to politics are starting to wake up to the fact that the southern border is getting out of hand.  On the other hand, the immigration nutjobs in the 164 treasonous Roman Catholic organizations have no public to answer to and care not a whit what the public thinks of them. 

Joe Biden, the people associated with these 164 organizations, and anyone who supports their efforts, is, in the opinion of this author, committing treason against the United States of America and is become a domestic enemy of our nation of the sort the Constitution speaks of.

19th century American Protestants would in no way be surprised by this turn of events.  This is the very thing they warned about, and it is coming to pass in our generation.     

Way back in 1884, Dr. Samuel D. Burchard called the Democrats “the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.” He was excoriated for saying so, which goes to show that large parts of supposedly Protestant America had already fallen under the sway of the Roman Harlot in his day.  And what was true in 1884 is even more true today.

The alarm bells are going off.  Our nation is burning down due to the predations of Antichrist and his Mother of Harlots Church.  Are there enough Christian men left to put out the fire?

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

–          Dr. Samuel D. Burchard, Presbyterian Minister and Union Civil War Veteran

The account of David’s fight with Goliath is, doubtless, the most famous case of singly combat ever.  Many people, even if they have never so much as opened a Bible have heard of their duel. 

But while the history of what took place is justifiably famous, there is at least one important detail that is often overlooked.  We read how Goliath was wont to come out and taunt Israel and how he, in so many words, double dog dared anyone from Israel’s army to come out and have a go at him one on one. 

Now among those present in Israel’s army was King Saul.  But even he would not dare to challenge Goliath.

If you stop and think about it, that must have been very demoralizing to the Israelites.  After all, a few years prior the Israelites had demanded a king to fight their battles for them like all the other nations.  Well, Israel had its king, but the king wasn’t doing his job.  He wasn’t leading Israel to victory in battle.  Quite the opposite.  He was cowering behind the lines at Goliath’s words just like everyone else.

And it got worse.

It wasn’t as if Goliath came out once or twice, got bored with disrespecting Israel, and gave up.  No, not at all.  If you’ve ever been picked on by a playground bully as a kid, you probably received advice such as, “Just ignore him and he’ll go away.”  Sometimes maybe that’s true.  But what if the bully doesn’t go away?  What if the bully comes back day after day to torment you?     

The Apostle Paul in writing to the Romans notes, “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” By saying “as much as it depends on you,” Paul acknowledges that living peaceably with others does not depend solely on you.  Sometimes there are men who want to have a go at you for one reason or another, those who like to pick fights. 

Goliath was one such man.  And he wasn’t the sort of fellow to just go away.

No.  The Scriptures tell us that Goliath would come out and say, “I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together.”  And this, Scripture tells us, he did for forty days both in the morning and in the evening. 

So twice a day for forty days, Goliath “defied” the armies of Israel.  And no one did anything.  Not Saul. Not David’s elder brothers.  No one.

Rather, we read, “When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.” 

Not very inspiring, that.

Into this courage, leadership, and ultimately faith gap strode David, who famously, by God’s grace, won the day.

Today’s American Protestants More Like Saul than Like David      

Now you may wonder why I started a column on the Babylonian Harlot’s – the Babylonian Harlot or Mystery, Babylon the Great as the Apostle John called the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) in Revelation 17 – attack on the United States of America by talking about David and Goliath. 

My point is this, that when I look at the reaction of today’s American Protestant church to the obvious, in-your-face predations of the RCCS, I am reminded more of Saul’s reaction to the giant than David’s. 

It seems that the more Antichrist – the office of the papacy is the Antichrist and Son of Perdition we read about in the new testament – and his Harlot Church attack America, the more God’s people cower in fear. 

Goliath loved getting in Israel’s face.  He loved playing the bully.  And it all was going great for him until one day it suddenly didn’t.  But it took a man of faith and courage to put an end to Goliath’s proud defiance of God’s people.   

In like fashion, the RCCS and its Antichrist pope love getting in the face of American Protestants.  Since it’s football season, I’ll use a football metaphor.  It’s as if Rome is spiking the football in our face and doing a touchdown dance, and no one does anything to put a stop to it. 

The pope and his bishops, cardinals, priests, and nuns lecture American Christians constantly about their (supposed) moral duty to destroy their own nation through mass welfare migration, immigration, and refugee resettlement of people, many of whom are difficult if not impossible to assimilate.  And not only is there a moral duty, these liars tell us, for Americans to take in the people, but we have an obligation to pay for our own dispossession as well. 

And what do we hear from Protestant pulpits about this shameful, daily dissing of our faith of the nation our forefathers built?

Crickets for the most part.

But it gets even worse. 

In some cases, putatively Protestant teachers actually internalize Rome’s immigration lies and begin spouting the same socialist, nation-destroying immigration nonsense as do the popes, cardinals, bishops, priests, and nuns of Rome.

Now it may well be, and I’m of a mind to believe that it is the case this day in America, that there are 7,000 in Israel who have not bowed the knee to Baal.

But I think we need to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, what are we going to do now that the Harlot Church and her pope are in our face?  Are we going to be as Saul and his men and be dismayed and greatly afraid?

Now there are reasons, ultimately not good ones, but reasons nonetheless, to be afraid. 

First, there is a lack of knowledge.  God said, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.”  And we see this every day here in America.  If not literally perishing, many Christians, perhaps even people who sense that there’s something seriously wrong with an immigration system that threatens to replace the historic majority population of this county, lack the ideas to adequately express their concerns. 

Even in Bible-believing churches, it’s a rare day that you will ever hear any overt criticism of the RCCS or its false gospel.  It’s a rare day indeed that you’ll hear the pope identified as the Antichrist of the New Testament in plain language of the sort used in the original Westminster Confession of Faith.   

At a Bible study, I once brought up that Rome teaches the real presence of Christ in the mass.  Now this being one of the most important doctrines of Rome, I would have thought that this would be a non-controversial statement.  But it wasn’t.  There were some people in my Bible study who actually defended Rome, denying that Rome teaches this doctrine that it very clearly does teach.  I got the distinct sense that some were embarrassed that I had even brought up the point.  And it wasn’t even as if I’d called the pope Antichrist!  He is.  But I simply brought up what Rome herself teaches in her own words and found myself met with resistance in a Protestant Bible study.   

If Protestants won’t teach and believe the Reformation doctrine of Antichrist and refuse to criticize Rome for its many soul-destroying and blasphemous teachings, how can we possibly expect anyone else to do so?  This is our fight.  We’re it.  If we don’t get the job done, who will?   

Second, speaking out against Rome feels strange.  We don’t see others doing it, so maybe we start to think calling out Antichrist and his Harlot Church is a sort of social “no go” zone.  We’re told as children that you don’t talk about religion and politics. And talking about the evil of political Romanism is both of those things at once.  It’s easier to pretend not to notice what’s going on and talk instead about the weather or sports or something like that. 

Third, we can’t handle the truth.  One suspects that there are Protestants who have a sense that there is something extraordinarily, preternaturally evil about Rome, but they don’t want to go there.  They prefer willful blindness to the evil of the RCCS rather than doing a little research and reading on their own.  It’s easier for us to play hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil rather than look at the situation as it is.  Because if we know what Rome in truth is, how can we not speak out against it?  And that’s dangerous.   And we don’t want to go there.

I once had a Protestant minister say to me that he knew Rome was the Babylonian Harlot with a false gospel sending that sent people to hell, but he said he couldn’t speak out against it.  The implication seemed to be that it would cause so much controversy in his ministry that he would lose his job. 

The minister may well have been right.  But that’s not a good reason to avoid criticizing Rome.

Where Has Our Cowardice Gotten Us?

So, just where has our cowardice gotten us Protestants?  Has playing nice with Rome and calling the pope “Our Brother in Christ” mollified the pope or caused the Babylonian Harlot Church to stop kicking sand in our faces? 

No, it has not.

If nothing else, our cowardice and unwillingness to speak out against the unbiblical, unchristian, unholy evil of Rome’s philosophy, theology, politics, and economics have simply invited more blatant attacks. 

What’s going on with the migrant hordes assaulting our southern border is one of the most flagrant and in-your-face attacks by Rome this author has ever seen. 

To use another comparison, Protestants today are acting much more like Neville Chamberlain than Winston Churchill, begging Rome for “peach in our time” while the Pope and his henchmen in the church and his dutiful servant in the White House assault our southern border with what is probably the single largest wave of mass, illegal immigration in our nation’s history. 

Christian, do you think Rome is going to feel sorry for you?  Do you think the Antichrist Jesuit Pope will have mercy on you?  Do you think the US Conference of Catholic Bishops will call off their attack dogs?   


The more we remain silent, the more we will be attacked until all is consumed and we find ourselves strangers in the land built by our forefathers. 

Reprove, Correct, and Instruct

Writing to the Ephesians, Paul said enjoined them, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (or expose) them.”  In 2 Timothy we’re told by Paul that all scripture is profitable for reproof, correction, and instruction. 

It is high time, and well past time, for us Christians to get about our job of applying the Scriptures to the evil deeds of the RCCS.  And there are so many of them.

In the past, I have thought at times that I was being overly hard on Rome.  I think to myself that I had gone overboard in my criticism of their doctrine and their evil deeds, only to find out that I didn’t understand half of how evil Rome truly is.    

The flagrant, in your face evil of what’s being done to Texas with the flood of migrants, and the weak to nonexistent response from the American Protestant church is disgraceful.  Paul ordered the Corinthians to “in understanding be men.”  Yet far too often, we Protestants prefer to remain as children.

I realize I’ve been hard on my fellow believers in this post.  But seriously, enough is enough. 

It has come down to this.  Either God’s people trust in him, believe his Word, and apply it to Rome’s evil economic and political philosophy and practices, or we lose our nation. 

It’s really that simple.

May the Lord grant that we make the wise choice and follow him.

“We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.”

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard, Presbyterian Minister and Union Civil War Veteran

It had been my plan to continue my series on Critical Race Theory (CRT) this week, but events, as they say, conspired against me.  Not that I had a bad week last week.  But it was a busy week, so not one conducive to research, which is a most necessary thing if one wants to write intelligently on CRT.  Lord willing, I will take up that subject again next week.  But for now, I thought I’d return to one of my favorite yet recently neglected topics:  immigration.  More to the point, the role of the Roman Church-State in fostering immigration treason against the American people.

For a number of years now, I have argued in this space that one of the leading unindicted co-conspirators in America’s ongoing immigration disaster is the Roman Church-State.  Rome has been using immigration since at least the first half of the 19th century to subvert the republican government of the United States.  But for all Rome’s obvious efforts to this end, it is a very rare immigration writer who points this out.  

One of the best places for seeing just how aggressive Rome is in pushing costly and aggressive immigration, migration and refugee resettlement policies is United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website under its “News” section.  I’ve been following this news feed for years, but never once have I seen a single immigration press release that did not promote immigration policies destructive to American. 

The past few months, the USCCB has been oddly silent on the immigration front.  I’m not sure why this is.  One possible explanation is related to an important rule among salesmen:  When you make the sale, stop talking.

Donald Trump with the Travel Ban Executive Order,

We are Republicans, and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion.  We are loyal to our flag.

  • Dr. Samuel D. Burchard

Welcome to the first in what I hope to be a recurring series of posts highlighting the close connection between the political and economic agenda of the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) and the Biden administration.

In many ways, this series is a successor to the earlier series of posts I wrote in this space under the title Rome Watch, which explored the political and economic agenda pursued by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) with an eye to exposing their anti-American agenda hidden in plain sight. 

Indeed, it is shocking the degree to which the USCCB openly conspires against the best interests of the American people, while at the same time it receives almost no scrutiny whatsoever for its subversive policy stances. 

It seemed good to me, however, to update the title of this recurring series from Rome Watch to Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion in the first place, because the new title draws the readers attention to the long-running close connection between the Democratic party and the RCCS.  The saying, “rum, Romanism, and rebellion” is taken from a speech given by Presbyterian minister and Union Civil War veteran Dr. Samuel D. Burchard shortly before the 1884 presidential election. 

Although many Americans have heard the famous triplet, they have, at best, a vague sense where it came from or to what it originally applied.
