Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

  • Genesis 9:6

No sooner had the terrible news of yesterday’s mass shooting in Buffalo, NY broken than the usual crowd was out on social and legacy media pushing the usual illogical arguments. 

 When I say illogical argument, allow me to provide a few examples.

First up on our list is the tweet from noted Jesuit James Martin (you know he’s a Jesuit by the “SJ” listed after his name, SJ standing for “Society of Jesus). Martin calls for prayers, “for the 10 victims of the racist, white nationalist, terrorist shootings.”  Christians, of course, are not called to pray for the dead.  But this is a teaching of the Roman Church-State. 

Martin then goes on to call, “for an end of gun violence, through stricter gun control laws.”  This an example of the erroneous approach to criminal justice known as “crime prevention.”  The idea is that you regulate – that is, you punish – everyone in advance in hopes of preventing some future criminal action.  An extreme form of this unbiblical approach to criminal justice was depicted in the dystopian science fiction movie Minority Report based on a short story by Philip K. Dick.  In that movie, a Department of PreCrime would arrest people for crimes that they supposedly were going to commit based upon visions of the future by individuals known as pre-cogs.

But Scripture does not countenance crime prevention.  The Scriptural approach to criminal justice is crime punishment, and idea which Martin, at least in part, rejects.  In a 2020 article in America Magazine (America is a publication of the Jesuits), Martin approvingly wrote of Pope Francis decision to change the Church’s teaching on capital punishment.  According to Martin, in his encyclical “Fratelli Tutti,” Jesuit Pope Francis “placed the full weight of his teaching authority behind this statement: The death penalty is inadmissible, and Catholics should work for its abolition.”  Put differently, Pope Francis, James Martin, and the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) generally have committed themselves to subverting justice in all the nations of the world. 

Perhaps one motive for the Catholic Church’s desire to subvert criminal justice is the horrifying numbers of murders that historians have laid at the feet of Rome.  Scholars have attributed differing numbers of murders to Rome.  One of the more conservative figures this author has seen is found in John Dowling’s book The History of Romanism.  Writes Dowling, “From the birth of Popery in 606, to the present time, it is estimated by careful and credible historians, that more than Fifty Millions of the human family, have been slaughtered for the crime of heresy by popish persecutors, and average of more than forth thousand religious murders for every year of the existence of Popery” (541-42).

So while on one hand Martin attempts to short-circuit Biblical justice that calls for executing murders, on the other hand, he seeks to punish all Americans by taking away their God-given, Second Amendment guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.  That’s very Jesuitical of him indeed.  And Marin is hardly the only Jesuit of this opinion.  Podcaster Christopher Pinot has discussed on his podcast how the Jesuits have advocated banning even handguns such as 9mm pistols.  It seems that their goal is to strip Americans of all their firearms.  Now why would they want to do that. 

Martin denounces “the evils of white nationalism, white supremacy, and the sin of racism,” but does not tell us what he means by these terms.  Perhaps he defines them elsewhere.  I don’t know.  But given the sloppy way such terms as “white nationalism,” “white supremacy” and “racism” used, given the social justice bent of Martin’s tweet and of the Jesuits generally, and given the Jesuit practice of mental reservation, he may mean something very different by these terms than do his readers.

Last week when someone leaked the Supreme Court’s draft majority opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, many commentators, including this author, viewed this leak to rally the troops and an attempt to intimidate the justices into withdrawing their support for the decision.   The actions or inactions on the part of highly placed people over the past few days have done nothing to diminish this suspicion.   

Of course, we don’t know for sure who leaked the draft opinion or their motives for doing so.  But given the shrieking that started immediately on the pro-abort side, and which seems to be picking up momentum, it’s reasonable to speculate that stirring up the mob to bully the court was the intent.

Recent history also supports this notion.  Think back just two years to the Black Lives Matter/Antifa rioting.  Those riots were largely successful in advancing the woke agenda in schools, universities, and corporations and in helping to remove Donald Trump from power and installing the illegitimate Biden Regime in the White House.

Force works, as John Robbins noted.  That’s why tyrants use it.

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.

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.

Two authoritarians of a feather. One’s already been convoyed. The other is scared to death of getting the same.

Were you to ask me what Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Jay Powell all have in common; I would answer you this: a belief in their own unaccountable power.

In his book Lex Rex (Latin for The Law is King), Samuel Rutherford set forth the Christian idea that governors, as well as the governed, alike were both under the law. 

Throughout most of human history, it was the exact opposite.  Rather than the law being king, it was Rex Lex, the king is the law. Put differently, The law is what the king says it is, and he himself is above it.

The notion that the law – and we mean by “the law” the law of God – is king and not man is a thoroughly Biblical and Christian idea.  It is not an accident that Protestant Samuel Rutherford set forth this idea in a book instead of some Roman Catholic scholar.  The idea that both the ruler and the ruled stand under the law and are responsible to God is a concept that was rediscovered at the time of the Reformation in implemented in those nations to which the Reformation came.

Those of us who live in the West, as badly decomposed as it is, have enjoyed the privilege of living under a system of government that acknowledged this principle.  As recently as two years ago, one could still think of this great idea as operable.  But beginning in 2020, Western governments initiated a coup détat of sorts, replacing the Protestant idea that the law is king with a technocratic tyranny in which unaccountable bureaucrats and puppetized elected officials rule us like kings.

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.
