Jesuit-educated Nina Jankowicz (Masters from Georgetown University) has been tapped by the Biden Regime to head up the new Ministry of Truth, known formally as the Disinformation Governance Board.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

  • Proverbs 29:2

“But clearly our entire principles of the country was founded on, you cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country.  And so let’s get real here.  Let’s make sure that we’re doing things that benefit Floridians and Americans, but we’re not going to let Biden get away with this one.  So, we’ll be fighting back.”

Those were the remarks of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis last week in response to the Biden Regime’s announcement of a new Ministry of Truth – the Disinformation Governance Board is the actual name for this new group that will fall under the umbrella of the equally Orwellian named Department of Homeland Security. 

For years, many have warned Americans of the creeping police state in this nation, and the day for it has finally arrived.  Actually, it’s been here for some time, but the fruits of the authoritarian mindset of our rulers have become much more manifest over the past two years.

“These companies need to have some other North Star than just making money and increasing profit shares,” former President Barack Obama said in a speech at Stanford University.

“Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech.”

  • The First Amendment to the Constitution

As our once free nation continues to sink under the weight of evil, anti-Christian ideas put into practice by an evil, ungodly governing class, it’s worth taking a moment to review the Biblical roots of one of our most cherished and important God-given and constitutionally guaranteed rights.  The right of free speech.   

Just last week, former President Barak Obama gave a speech in which he once again called for government regulation of social media platforms.  “People are dying,” the former president told us, “because of misinformation.”

Misinformation is bad, according to Obama. And misinformation must be stopped.

Using as an excuse prior unconstitutional regulatory exercises of federal government power, Obama proposed called for the regulation of the social media companies to stop the spread of “toxic information.”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. While not a popular man with the globalist elite, he is doing the Lord’s work.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

  • Proverbs 29:2

Viktor Orban’s victory is a triumph for illiberal nationalism,” whines the headline in The Economist. “Poland’s Leader Slams Orban Over ‘Dead End’ Stance on Russia,” complains Bloomberg.  “Victory for Hungary’s Orban means a headache for the EU,” notes the BBC.  But the award for biggest Orban temper tantrum goes to CNN which ranted “Victor Orban, Hungary’s authoritarian leader and key Putin ally, calls Zelensky an ‘opponent’ after winning election.” 

I could go on, but these headlines, typical of legacy media’s decade-plus-long assault on Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, give the reader a fair example of the kind of hate Orban faces from news organizations. 

The occasion of the latest media meltdown over Orban was his fourth consecutive election victory on 4/3/2022.

The BBC article summed up the EU’s opinion on his election win thus, “You could almost hear the collective thud of EU hearts sinking on Sunday night as Viktor Orban made his victory speech.”

 Ah, the sound of globalist heads exploding.  Now that’s music to my ears.

There was a time in my Christian walk that eschatology, that is, the study of the doctrine of end times, didn’t seem all that important.  There were a lot of competing ideas about end times in the popular Christian press, but none of the popular ones that I saw made much of an impact on me.  None of them struck me as compelling.

But the longer I’ve been a Christian, the more I’ve come to appreciate the importance of having a sound understanding of eschatology.

Take the doctrine of the identity of Antichrist.  Although many Presbyterians and members of other Reformed churches may be surprised to hear this, the original version of the Westminster Confession of Faith had a very well-developed statement on Antichrist, leaving no one in doubt as to the identity of this person. 

It was the Pope of Rome.

Westminster Confession of Faith 25.6 originally read,

There is no other Head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ: nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God.

Joe Biden delivers a speech in Warsaw, Poland on 3/26/2022, in which he appeared to call for the removal of Vladimir Putin. Administration officials have denied this was Biden’s intent.

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger

  • Proverbs 15:1

“For God’s sake, this man [Vladimir Putin] cannot remain in power.”

So concluded American President Joe Biden in his Saturday speech in Poland.

Let Biden’s words sink in for a moment.  Here’s the President of the United States uttering words that could reasonably be interpreted as a declaration of war on a sovereign, nuclear-armed power. 

Growing up during the cold war, I well remember the constant tensions between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.  But for all that, I don’t ever recall hearing the sort of threat that Biden uttered in his speech on Saturday.

Biden has held political office of one sort or another for about fifty years.  As a lawyer and as a politician he, of all people, should understand the importance of choosing the right words. 

It was King Solomon who penned the words “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Perhaps those words need to be tattooed on the forehead of Biden and his advisors, for they seem to have forgotten, or perhaps never learned them.

The prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.

  • Proverbs 22:3

In a well-known scene from The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and her companions finally get their audience with the Wizard himself.  It turns out to be a terrifying affair, with thundering, lightning, and smoke all around. 

That is until Dorothy’s little dog Toto runs over and pulls back the curtain on the control booth, revealing the Wizard to be a not-so-imposing fellow, one whose frightening image is the product of special effects controlled from an electronic panel. 

Whether the intention of the filmmakers was for this scene to serve as an illustration of the workings of modern society, I don’t know.  Perhaps it was.  But whatever their intention, it certainly is a glimpse into how things so often do work in our media-driven society.  It’s “look over here, look over here” while at the same time we’re told, “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”

Put another way, we’re taught to focus on the effect rather than on the cause of the effect.

“What does it profit anyone except the very few to whom war means huge profits?”

  • Brigadier General Smedley D. Butler, USMC, War is a Racket

In his 1930s book War is a Racket, retired U.S. Marine Corps Brigadier General Smedley Butler argued against the globalists and corporatists of his day and for the return of America’s historic foreign policy of non-interventionism. 

Some may suppose from the title of his book that Butler, a 30-year Marine Corps veteran and two-time medal of honor recipient, had turned pacifist.  Such was not the case.  Butler was not a pacifist.  He was a non-interventionist in that he held that war was could justifiably be undertaken only for very limited reasons.  In Butler’s view, there were only two reasons Americans should go to war.  He wrote:

There are only two reasons you should be asked to give your youngsters.  One is defense of our homes.  The other is the defense of our Bill of Rights and particularly the right to worship God as we see fit.  Every other reason advanced for the murder of young men is a racket, pure and simple (War is a Racket, 67). 

Put differently, Butler believed that American soldiers should be sent to battle only in defense of their families, their property, and their Constitutionally guaranteed rights.  This is essentially the foreign policy of the founding fathers of America. 

Worth noting, too, is that Butler mentioned “young men” in his comments, not young women.  Feminism had not advanced so far in his day as to make it a philosophical imperative that young women be sent to the frontlines, a barbaric and astonishingly stupid idea advanced both by the U.S. and now (probably due to U.S. influence) Ukrainian army.
