“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

For the first time in his nearly 2 years in office, Joe Biden will visit America’s southwestern border today to lie to the American people once again about what he and his Regime are doing to destroy the nation that he supposedly represents through the policy of mass, welfare migration. 

As America’s second Roman Catholic president, Joe Biden has wasted no time implementing the welfare immigration program of the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church-State, a program designed to weaken and subvert the United States and to strengthen the hand of the Vatican in the internal affairs of the nation.  The goal of this program is to render the United States ungovernable and fold it into a regional, and finally a world government with the Pope – the man who claims to be the father of kings, governor of the world, and vicar of Christ – as the head.

While the lying legacy media portray America’s border crisis as if it, like Melchizedek, were without father or mother or genealogy, the parentage of America’s illegal alien migration disaster is very clearly known.  It is a creation of the Democrats generally, of the Biden Regime more particularly, and of the Vatican ultimately.    

But while the Vatican origins of the current immigration crisis are not hard to see, most Americans, even Reformed Christians who of all people should have the discernment to see the scam for what it is, fail to grasp what is being done to them and by whom it is being done.

The Antichrist Roman Church-State has been active on our southern border for years, decades really, promoting the destruction of America through mass Roman Catholic, welfare migration.  But in the past few years, Rome has stepped up its game.  Jesuit Pope Francis paid a visit to Juarez in January 2016, celebrating a mass that was simulcast in the Sun Bowl in El Paso.  Unsurprisingly, Francis used this occasion to promote his favorite nation-breaking ploy, mass welfare migration. 

The Wall Street Journal reporting on the Pope’s visit to Juarez noted, “While many are expected to cross the border to see the papal Mass at the nearby Juárez fairgrounds, some 600 ‘VIPs’ invited by the Roman Catholic Diocese of El Paso – migrants, labor advocates, nuns and immigration activists – will gather to watch the pope from a levee on the U.S. side.”

In another article on the same subject from February 9, 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported, “Pope Francis arrives in Mexico on Friday for a six-day visit that will end with a highly symbolic and potentially controversial act: the pontiff taking a stand on the fortified U.S. border to show solidarity with the migrants trying to cross it.”  The Journal even went so far as to refer to migration as, “the expected theme of the pope’s Juárez visit.”

With this in mind, is it any big surprise that seven years later El Paso is the epicenter of Antichrist’s illegal alien assault on America?

Dr. O’Dell Owens, noted fertility doctor and former Hamilton County Coroner.

Renowned local health leader Dr. O’Dell Owens has died” was the headline in one local news outlet.

If you’re not from the Cincinnati area as I am, you likely do not know the name Dr. O’Dell Owens.  But in this area, he was a very well-known and admired individual.  The article just cited listed some of his titles: Hamilton County (Cincinnati) coroner, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College president, and Cincinnati Health Department medical director.

Personally, I never knew him or interacted with him at all.  My only knowledge of him comes from his media persona.  From my own observations, he seemed to be a sincere and decent fellow. I know of no scandal associated with his name.  From some of the coverage I’ve seen, he was a member of a local Baptist church.

His death on November 23 at the age of 74 has generated no small amount of coverage in the local newspapers and TV stations.  There is talk of naming the recently opened county coroner’s crime lab after him.  That seems reasonable enough, given that he was the county coroner. 

But then there’s this.  The county commissioner who wants to name the office after Owens stated one reason she wants to do this is because of Owens, “encouraging people during the pandemic to get vaccinated.” 

According to local radio station WVXU, “Owens planned to spend his retirement volunteering ‘to support community groups on the regional response to the COVID-19 pandemic,’ and even advised Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine on the state’s COVID response” Advising Gov. Mike DeWine on the Covid response is a dubious accomplishment to cite, as DeWine was a Covid tyrant.  While not as bad as some of the Democrat governors, his response was heavy-handed and did a great deal of damage to the personal liberty of all Ohioans and to the economy of the state.  If it were not for the action of the Ohio General Assembly, which passed a bill curtailing the emergency medical powers of the governor, a bill that was passed over DeWine’s veto, it’s hard to say when the Covid lockdown would have ended in Ohio.  It ended despite, not because of, the actions of Gov. DeWine.

According to his Wikipedia article, Owens’s role in advising DeWine concerned “equitable vaccine distribution.”  The likely meaning of this is that Owens worked to ensure vaccines were distributed to black Ohioans.  If so, this was not the blessing that Owens seemed to think it was.

Another article from a local TV station noted, “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Owens was one of Cincinnati’s most vocal advocates for COVID-19 vaccination in the Black community.

There’s also this short video from June 2021 Owens made for PBS titled “Confidence in the Vaccine / Dr. Owens.” In it, Owens claims that he has confidence in the vaccine because it’s been under development since 1999 and that it’s been tested. Owens conceded that there was no long-term testing data, but he called the vaccine safe and effective anyway. 

What’s the sum of all this?  Dr. Owens, despite all his significant accomplishments, was a pusher of what is probably the deadliest medical treatment in all of history.  But not one of the many local stories on Dr. Owens made this point.  And the fact that not one news outlet coving this story saw fit to mention that Owens pushed the Covid jab tells you that we’re still very much in the propaganda matrix when it comes to Covid.

U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto is seen Monday. The Democrat defeated Adam Laxalt, a Trump-backed Republican and former Nevada attorney general. The win means Democrats retain the U.S. Senate.

I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.

  • II Kings 21:13

Last week’s post was “The 2022 Midterms: A Preview.”  This week, we take a look back on the election that was.

No Red Wave

After a lot of hype about a big Republican showing in the Mid Terms, the results were less than overwhelming.  It appears that the GOP will retake the House, so that’s something.  But the Senate will remain in the Democrats’ hands.  Further, none of the Covid lockdown governors were removed, as Gretchen Whitmer and Kathy Hochul both held on to their seats in Michigan and New York respectively.  It appears as if voters in those and other states said, in effect, “lock us down harder next time!”  A friend of mine relative to the result in Michigan commented, “Those people get what they deserve.” 

If it was an honest vote, I couldn’t argue with that.  Of course, there’s the district possibility that it was not an honest vote.  But more on that below.

“In our bones, we know democracy is at risk,” said Joe Biden at Union Station, Washington D.C., 11/2/2022.

“Donald Trump if the Democrats don’t steal it.”

Two years ago about this time, I was sitting in a friend’s family room watching the final Trump/Biden presidential debate.  My friend had asked me who I thought was going to win the 2020 presidential election and I replied to him that I thought Trump would win if the Democrats didn’t steal the election.

As things turned out, the Democrats with a little help from their friends in the Deep State, major corporations, the courts, the Covid lockdowns, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the mainstream media, major social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, the entertainment industry, pollsters, schools, universities, and various and sundry thugs in the Democrat party, etc. did manage to steal the election for the most incompetent and uninspiring presidential candidate in my lifetime, possibly in all of American history. 

The theft of the 2020 presidential election and the ability of the Democrats and their helpers to make it stick bodes ill for the future of our republic.  The successful steal, perhaps it’s better to call it a coup d’état, of the 2020 election has led many to the opinion that we cannot vote our way out of the problems currently facing our nation.  Count me among their number. 

But for all that, the aim of this post is not to discourage people from voting, giving up, and heading for their survival bunker in the hills.  As Christians, we are called to be salt and light in a lost and dying world, and this includes carrying out our civic responsibilities the best we are able.  Further, we do not know the future.  Perhaps the Lord will have mercy on America for the sake of his elect and save us from the oppressive darkness we see gathering all around us.  He’s done that sort of thing before, and he can do it again if he so wills.  Has the arm of the Lord been shortened?

For this reason, it’s not my purpose today to fill people with dread and fear of the future.  I’ll leave that to the Democrats.  Rather, my aim is to realistically assess the situation facing America in November 2022 and offer a few suggestions and perhaps even venture a prognostication or two.

Queen Athaliah Orders The King’s Children to be Killed by Harmen Jansz Muller, Hadrianus Junius, and Gerard De Jode.

And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal.

  • II Kings 11:1

Today I’d like to wrap up our look at Jehoiada’s righteous interposition on behalf of the legitimate Davidic line of kings and the people of Judah.

As we’ve discussed so far, the purpose of this series is to look at an important but largely ignored Biblical doctrine known as the doctrine of the lesser magistrate.  Last week we defined the doctrine of the lesser magistrate using Matthew Trewhella’s book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates.  In his book, Trewhella gives the following definition of this doctrine,

The lesser magistrate doctrine declares that when the superior or higher civil authority makes unjust/immoral laws or decrees, the lesser or lower ranking civil authority has both a right and duty to refuse obedience to that superior authority.  If necessary, the lesser authorities even have the right and obligation to actively resist the superior authority (1).

It’s important to define and discuss this doctrine because Christians in the West find themselves in situations where more and more they live under governments that are openly hostile to them.  Good is now evil and evil is now good.  In some places, Christians can find themselves prosecuted for quoting what the Bible says about homosexuality, while satanic transgender activists are free to recruit kids for their perverted cause. 

Here in the United States, we have a situation much like what Judah faced under Queen Athaliah, an illegitimate government that goes out of its way to implement evil policies.  Athaliah was a murderess and promoter of Baal worship.  Joe Biden works tirelessly to implement the Vatican’s globalist agenda via his climate change policies, unprecedented illegal immigration, attacking the Americans’ Second Amendment rights, fanning the flames of war in eastern Europe, the promoting sexual perversion, and accusing patriotic, Christian Americans of sedition when they speak out against his evil.

When faced with evil government dictates, some Christians will point to Romans 13:1 – Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities – and argue that there is no legitimate or almost no legitimate reason for Christians ever to push back against evil government commands. If a governor says that you have to shut down your church due to Covid, you shut down your church due to Covid, and that’s just that.  Anything else is unrighteous rebellion.  That this is a widespread opinion can be seen by the number of churches that bent their knee when told to close their doors “to stop the spread.”

On the other hand, there are some people who hold that primate rebellion is a justified response against a tyrannical government.  There are several instances where the kings of Judah and Israel were murdered by political opponents.  Oddly, young king Joash, whom Jehosheba and Jehoiada saved, would later be murdered by his servants.  But the murder of Joash, even though Joash had clearly deviated from the paths of righteousness later in life, is clearly condemned in the Scriptures.     

So we see that neither blind obedience nor private rebellion is the Christian answer to dealing with tyrannical governments.  The Christian answer is the doctrine of the lesser magistrate.  A doctrine we see modeled quite well by the righteous high priest Jehoiada.  Jehoiada hid the young, rightful heir to the throne of Judah for six years.  After that period had elapsed, he organized a military guard, brought the seven-year-old Joash out in public, and made him king.   

That’s where we left off last week.  Let us now consider the beneficial effects of Jehoiada’s actions and what lessons American and other Western Christians can take from his example.

The Declaration of Independence, an example of the Biblical Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate

And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal.

  • II Kings 11:1

After a two-week hiatus, I’d like to return to our look at the account in II Kings of Queen Athaliah of Judah.  This passage has a lot to say to Christians in America, perhaps especially at this politically charged time in our history. 

As did Judah under Queen Athaliah, likewise we in the United States have a hostile usurper in power. And the question I’d like to ask and answer is what are Christians to do?  How are we to respond?  How do we conduct our lives under an unjust and illegitimate government? 

There seems to be one school of thought among Christians holding to the idea that at no time are Christians to seek to resist an evil ruler or seek to remove an unjust government.  After all, Paul wrote to Timothy urging that supplications be made for kings and all who are in authority.  Romans 13 is another favorite of those who take this position.  There, Paul writes, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities.”  The case seems clear-cut, does it not? Christians are to obey the government, whatever it says. 

The case for Christians simply having to put up with tyrannical rulers could be strengthened by appeals to the Old Testament.  For example, those holding to the idea that rebellion is always wrong could point to those who conspired to murder King Joash.  In II Kings 12:20, 21 we read, “And his [King Joash’s] servants arose and formed a conspiracy [yes, there are many examples of conspiracies in the Bible], and killed Joash in the house of the Millo, which goes down to Silla.  For Jozachar the son of Shimeath and Jehozabad the son of Shomer, his servants, struck him.  So he died, and they buried him with his fathers in the City of David.  Then Amaziah his son reigned in his place.”  Was this a lawful act?  No, it was not as can be seen in II Kings 14 where we read, “Now it happened, as soon as the kingdom was established in his [Amaziah’s, the son of Joash] hand, that he executed his servants who had murdered his father the king.”  Clearly, this shows that there is no Christian basis for resisting the orders of a ruler, does it not?

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.”

  • II Kings 11:1

Last week I wrote about America and how our nation, conceived in liberty with a government of, by, and for the people, has devolved to the point where we now live under an occupation government with a son of Antichrist seated in the Oval Office. 

Of course, the Regime press will never tell you this.  Their job is to curry favor with the powers that shouldn’t be.  In fact, about the only good reason I can think of for reading the legacy media is the same one I’m told the people of the Soviet Union followed Pravda: to know what official lies the government expected them to believe.  If you know a narrative is a lie, it’s easier to dismiss it as the propaganda it is. 

On Friday, The New York Times ran an absurd hit piece of an editorial titled “Donald Trump Is Not Above the Law.”  Of course, we would agree with that statement.  But the Times isn’t interested in impartial justice.  You see, the writers at the Times and other outlets that worship and serve the Beast, while Donald Trump is not above the law, Barak Obama (spied on the Trump campaign), Hillary Clinton (server gate and other crimes too numerous to mention), Hunter Biden (laptop from hell), Joe Biden (grand theft election) are above the law.  So too are the alphabet agencies such as the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the DOJ. The Times is asking you to forget about the massive, treasonous activities of these individuals and organizations while focusing on a supposed “crime” of Donald Trump which appears not to be a crime at all.  Indeed, given the consistent, outrageous lying on the part of the Democrats and the Deep State about Trump since at least 2015, Americans have every right to dismiss this latest dust-up over Trump’s stealing of classified documents as the latest and most desperate hate hoax against the former President, who is hated and feared by the party of rum, Romanism, and rebellion to a degree that I have not personally witnessed before in the world of politics.

So, what does the Bible say about living under an occupation government, a usurping, corrupt, and illegitimate government?  As was mentioned last week, there is a surprising and little discussed example of that very thing in Scripture, the reign of Queen Athaliah of Judah. 

One supposes that there are many who attend nominally Protestant churches these days who would be surprised to hear that Judah had a queen for six years.  But such was the case. And her reign can be instructive to us as to how to live as God’s people under an occupation government and not give up hope.
