Tammany Hall as a ferocious tiger killing democracy by Thomas Nast, Harper’s Weekly.

“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.

Adam Schiff and Liz Cheney of the J6 Committee.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

  • Exodus 20:16

As much as I try not to let it happen, the constant drumbeat of lies promoted 24/7 from every corner of our civilization gets to me from time to time. 

And I really find it is the constant lying about everything all the time by everyone in official positions of power that gets to me the most.

Politicians, CEOs, university presidents and professors, schoolteachers, school administrators, and school boards, federal government officials, state and local officials, legacy media outlets, churches, doctors, hospitals and medical officials, law enforcement, lawyers and judges, entertainers, athletes and professional sports leagues, bankers, and tax-exempt foundations.  In short, every institution in America has become a lie factory dedicated to deceiving us all and promoting a false view of the world.

But the Bible commands Christians not to lie and deceive others.  In the Ten Commandments, we are told, “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”  Paul repeated this idea in his epistle to the Ephesians, writing, “Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour.”   The Lord Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”  The devil, Scripture tells us, is the father of lies.  And as imitators of Christ, his people are called to walk in the truth.  And no lie is of the truth.

Title page of the Quebec Act of 1774

[W]here the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

            – 2 Corinthians 3:17

Writing as I am on this day, July 3, 2022, it’s hard for my thoughts not to turn to Independence Day as Americans celebrate the 246th anniversary of the founding of the American nation. 

I don’t remember a time when Independence Day was not one of my favorite days on the calendar.  Growing up in the 1970s, I recall the focus on the Bicentennial celebrations in 1976.  I was ten years old at the time.  Not old enough to understand or appreciate the full significance of the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War, and the Constitution, but old enough to realize that the acts and the words of the founding fathers had created a new nation committed to the protection of individual liberty to an extent never before accomplished.

One lesson about the formation of the United States that I did not learn until years later was just how much it depended upon the Protestant Reformation kicked off by Martin Luther over 250 years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. 

This idea – the notion that the United States and the history of limited government and economic liberty historically, if not presently, enjoyed by its citizens is a by-product of the Reformation – would likely come as a surprise to many Americans today, even those who attend churches that claim to be Reformed.

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.

Pope Francis consecrates the world and, in particular, Ukraine and Russia to a demon posing as Mary, the mother of Jesus during a Lenten penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican March 25, 2022. (CNS photo/Paul Haring)

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.

ICE agents forced to coordinate travel for illegal immigrants, some with criminal records: source

The illegitimate Biden Regime continues its all-out effort to put Americans last. 

If you have any doubts about this, the reports from Bill Melugin of Fox News about the illegal alien travel service the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is running should help clear them up. 

Take the following tweet as an example:

Illegal aliens continue to flood our southern border due to encouragement from the Biden Regime.  And once they’re in the country, instead of being deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as they should be, they’re being bussed – at taxpayer expense! – to destinations in the nation’s interior. 

According to one ICE agent, “The Biden Administration has turned ICE ERO [Enforcement and Removal Operations] into an unofficial travel coordination agency.”   

American citizenship, a jewel prized throughout the world, continues to be treated like so much garbage by the federal government as it steadfastly refuses to do anything to close the absurd birthright citizenship loophole.  Allan Wall reports that Marina del Pilar Avila Olmeda, governor of the Mexican state of Baja California, deliberately left Mexico to give birth in Brawley, California, 34 miles from the state capital.  Simply by being born on US soil, her son was automatically granted American citizenship to go along with his Mexican citizenship.  That’s what birthright citizenship is.
