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.

So I finally started reading the Green New Deal (GND) tonight in preparation for what I hope will be an upcoming series on socialism. With the rise of openly socialist politicians in the US, it is imperative for Christians to speak out against this ungodly political and economic system, both to preserve our remaining liberties and to witness to the system of truth as revealed in the pages of Scripture.

The GND is almost certainly the most aggressive attack on the Bible’s system of economics and politics, what John Robbins called constitutional capitalism, launched in my lifetime by an American politician. It’s so aggressive that my first thought is that the papal Antichrist must in some way be connected to it.

And guess what? It is.

The House Resolution “Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal” begins with the following sentence, “Whereas the October 2018 report entitled ‘Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ˚C’ by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change….”

So, the GND is to a large degree based on a report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which notes on the groups homepage that it “is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. Anyone with a passing familiarity with the UN and the politics of the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) knows that Rome and the UN are intimately connected. As John Robbins noted, “In the judgment of the Church-State, the United Nations is, at the present time, the likeliest vehicle to achieve the political and economic world unification that the Roman Church-State desires” (Ecclesiastical Megalomania, 194).

Since the GND’s socialist call to action is based largely on the IPCC’s report, and since the IPCC is part of the UN, and since Rome has a long history of supporting the UN and it various programs designed to promote world government, it is worth reviewing what Rome has had to say about the document that is so foundational to the GND.

No big surprise here. Rome loves it. For example,

  • “The complexity of this task, however, is amplified by the great sense of urgency to act, as was unmistakably stressed in the last Intergovernmental Panel on climate Change (IPCC) Special Report.” Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin
  • “Catholics urge action as UN report forecasts climate crisis in coming decades” National Catholic Reporter
  • “Members of the Holy See delegation spoke clearly during the meeting of the need to listen to scientists, particularly in the latest IPCC report, which echoes the cry of the earth and shows clearly the devastating impact of climate change on communities around the world” Vatican press release, 12/12/2018.

Worth noting the two sponsors of the House Resolution, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) are themselves both Roman Catholics and graduates of Jesuit Boston College.

Doubtless there are further connections between the GND and the RCCS to be discovered, but it seemed good to point out even the little bit that has come to light in just a few minutes research.

Rome’s ungodly Thomistic philosophy combined with its undisguised ambition to usher in world government make it imperative that Christians not only not be ignorant of Antichrist’s devices, but also that they refute his ideas, including his destructive environmental teachings, from the Scriptures.
