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.

“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

  • Matthew 7:12

In his essay “The Religious Wars of the 21st Century,” John Robbins wrote, “The conservative movement in the United States has abandoned the American (and Biblical) foreign policy of strategic independence pursued by our government since 1776 for a policy of global interventionism that has angered many foreign nations and peoples, most recently the Muslims.”

To our 21st century ears, the idea of conducting a foreign policy of “strategic independence,”, a foreign policy that avoids foreign entanglements, minds one’s own business, and treats other nations in the same way we’d like to be treated, sounds strange. 

Growing up as I did during the Cold War, I thought it was perfectly normal to have American troops stationed all over the world.  Germany, Japan, Korea, and many other nations all were occupied by American forces. 

Although I dreaded the idea of the military draft as a young man, had you asked me at the time I would have said I supported it as it was all about doing my duty. 

It was only later after I became a Christian and after I read the work of John Robbins, that I began to develop a Biblical view of foreign policy.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

  • Ephesians 6:10

Commenting on Ephesians 6:10, Gordon Clark said of this verse, “Here begins the peroration of the epistle.” 

“Peroration” is not a term most of us commonly use.  It means the concluding part of a discourse, especially the concluding part of an oration.  A second meaning of “peroration” is highly rhetorical speech.  In light of this definition, Clark’s calling verse 10 the beginning of the epistle’s peroration certainly seems appropriate.  Verses 10-18 of Ephesians chapter 6 are memorable, not only for the message itself but also for the rhetoric Paul uses to make his point.

In this passage, Paul uses the figure of a Christian soldier armed to do battle against the wiles of the devil

Now this passage on Christian spiritual warfare has many applications.  But the focus of my comments today will be concerning Christians and the present battle against Covid tyranny. 

For nearly two years, Christians the world over have been subjected to a remarkably intense political, economic, and psychological assault by the political, academic, religious, and business elite of the world.  This assault, whether in the form of unprecedented lockdowns, vaccine mandates, or restrictions on movement, ultimately is not a political battle, although it involves political oppression.  Neither is it fundamentally economic in nature, even though the pushers of the Covid narrative have certainly attacked ordinary people economically while at the same time vastly enriching many billionaires who benefited from the lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

“The great law of morality ought to have a national as well as a personal and individual application.  We should act toward other nations as we wish them to act toward us….”

  • Millard Fillmore, 1850 State of the Union Address

Biden Weighs Deploying Thousands of Troops to Eastern Europe and Baltics” is the New York Times headline that just flashed across my phone. 

In the story’s first paragraph we read,

President Biden is considering deploying several thousand U.S. troops, as well as warships and aircraft, to NATO allies in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, an expansion of American military involvement amid mounting fears of a Russian incursion into Ukraine, according to administration officials.

The situation in Ukraine, long-simmering in the background, appears to be coming to a head.  There are a number of issues contributing to the growing tensions between Russia and NATO, the most important of which is the possible inclusion of Ukraine in the NATO alliance.  Russia has made it clear that NATO expansion into Ukraine is unacceptable.  In the words of Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov, “It is absolutely mandatory to make sure that Ukraine never ever becomes a member of NATO.” American Secretary of State Antony Blinken and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg have countered by stating that Russia has no say in the matter of who is allowed into NATO

What are Christians to make of this?  Is Russia right to object to Ukraine joining NATO, or are the Americans right to seek to incorporate Ukraine in the NATO alliance? Are both sides wrong?  Scripturalists, those who believe that the Bible has a systematic monopoly on truth, including truth on foreign policy, seek to answer these questions by appealing to the Word of God, the 66 books of the Bible.  What do they say?

There is no greater threat facing the true church of Christ at this moment than the irrationalism that now controls our entire culture.

  • John W. Robbins, “The Trinity Manifesto”

After nearly two years of continuous madness, the pandemic of Covid irrationalism and totalitarianism has yet to run its course.  For that matter, the worse the scientific case gets – let alone the Biblical case – for vaccine mandates and other impositions on liberty, the more strident the calls for more stringent measures become from the true believers in the Covidian cult. 

Even those from who we have a right to expect rational thought on matters Covid can’t get it right.  Here, I’m talking specifically about the Supreme Court’s ruling last week on the Biden regime’s vaccine mandates. The Court struck down as unconstitutional – of course, the Court is nowhere given the power to determine whether a law is constitutional or not, this is a usurped power but that is another matter that I will not address today – the mandate requiring all employers with 100 or more employees to force their workforces to be vaccinated or face ruinous fines.  On the other hand, the Court found in favor of the mandate directed at health care professions, stating that any medical facility that accepts federal Medicare and Medicaid dollars must require all employees to be vaccinated. 

In his article “Supreme Court Delivers Schizophrenic Ruling,” Paul Craig Roberts noted, “What we have is the complete separation of the law from justice and the violation of the US Constitution that requires equal treatment under the law.  The Justices have, again, delivered unequal treatment.”
