“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

It had been my plan to continue my series on Critical Race Theory (CRT) this week, but events, as they say, conspired against me.  Not that I had a bad week last week.  But it was a busy week, so not one conducive to research, which is a most necessary thing if one wants to write intelligently on CRT.  Lord willing, I will take up that subject again next week.  But for now, I thought I’d return to one of my favorite yet recently neglected topics:  immigration.  More to the point, the role of the Roman Church-State in fostering immigration treason against the American people.

For a number of years now, I have argued in this space that one of the leading unindicted co-conspirators in America’s ongoing immigration disaster is the Roman Church-State.  Rome has been using immigration since at least the first half of the 19th century to subvert the republican government of the United States.  But for all Rome’s obvious efforts to this end, it is a very rare immigration writer who points this out.  

One of the best places for seeing just how aggressive Rome is in pushing costly and aggressive immigration, migration and refugee resettlement policies is United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website under its “News” section.  I’ve been following this news feed for years, but never once have I seen a single immigration press release that did not promote immigration policies destructive to American. 

The past few months, the USCCB has been oddly silent on the immigration front.  I’m not sure why this is.  One possible explanation is related to an important rule among salesmen:  When you make the sale, stop talking.

The Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel, 1563.

Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

  • Genesis 11:6

He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him.

  • Acts 17:26-27

Among the besetting sins of the 21st century American Protestantism is its propensity to form ungodly pacts with unbelievers.  It amounts to a return to the failed policy of Israel, which, when the going got tough, often resorted to going down to Egypt to seek Pharaoh’s help when they instead should have sought the Lord.

The close, and seemingly every closer, ties between mainstream Evangelicalism and Roman Catholicism one again were brought to mind this week by Joe Biden’s executive order blitz and the similar reaction to them from both the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT).  The reaction to Biden’s executive orders on immigration from the USCCB and the ersatz Evangelicals at EIT was so similar that one could be forgiven for thinking they were penned by the same person.

EIT is just one example of the evil fruit of neo-evangelicalism, a movement that was developed in the years following WWII by Carl F. H. Henry and other leaders, who, as John Robbins noted, “had such a horror of separation that they had to separate from the separationists [the fundamentalists].”

One of the landmark texts produced by the neo-evangelicals is an ecumenical document dating from 1994 and co-signed by Charles Colson and John Neuhaus, with Colson representing the Evangelicals and Neuhaus the Catholics.

A book titled Evangelicals & Catholics Together: Toward A Common Mission (ECT) was issued the following year edited by Colson and Neuhaus.  The main argument of this evil book was that Evangelicals and Catholics, while they had their differences, in the end really are brothers in Christ and, for this reason, ought to cooperate toward the common goal of uniting Christians “that they may be all be one.” 

Of course, for Evangelicals and Catholics to be one requires the prior understanding that both Evangelicals and Roman Catholics believe the same things are Christians.  Now it may well be true that Southern Baptist Chuck Colson believed the same things as Richard Neuhaus, but this would simply prove that Colson himself was not a Christian, not that Protestantism and Catholicism have any propositions in common. 

This March, it will be 27 years since the release of ECT, and that is enough time to trace out at least some of the evil fruit of this document.  To do it full justice, would take far longer than could be done in a short blog post.  But I’d like to take this opportunity to demonstrate just how close the cooperation has become between the Roman Church-State and conservative, ersatz Evangelicals in just one area:  immigration.

On Immigration, the USCCB and EIT Speak as One

The past few days have been busy ones at the USCCB.  The bishops, it seems, can hardly believe the embarrassment of riches that has fallen into their lap with the election of America’s second Roman Catholic president.  Oddly enough, in both cases when America elected a Roman Catholic president, there were widespread and credible charges of election fraud, but that’s another story.   

Focusing on just the USCCB’s press releases, we find four on immigration:

USCCB Chairmen Welcome End of Ban Prohibiting Immigrants and Refugees from Certain Muslim Majority and African Countries Entering the United States

USCCB Migration Chairman Welcomes Administration’s Initial Effort to Reform Enforcement and Protect Families

USCCB President and migration Chairman Welcome Administration’s Commitment to DACA and the Call for Legislation on Immigration Reform

USCCB Chairmen Affirm Administration’s Order Ensuring All Persons Included in Census and Apportionment

EIT, on the other hand, while a little less energetic than their colleagues at the USCCB, nevertheless managed to put together two recent press releases on immigration

Evangelicals Join Broad Call for Bipartisan Immigration Reform

Evangelicals Applaud Day-One Biden Administration Changes to Immigration Policy Urge Bipartisan Congressional Leadership

In both cases, the press releases celebrate the fact that the Biden’s executive orders will release a flood of taxpayer subsidized immigration, migration, and refugee resettlement, the cost of which will be underwritten by the American people as their moral obligation.

As further evidence that EIT is an intellectual colony of Rome, consider the following paragraphs taken from EIT’s 1/19/2021 statement Evangelicals Join Broad Call for Bipartisan Immigration Reform:

The Evangelical Immigration Table includes Bethany Christian Services, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Faith and Community Empowerment, the National Association of Evangelicals, the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, The Wesleyan Church, World Relief and World Vision.

Other signatories include additional faith groups including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services, a wide range of trade associations and businesses, local police departments and chiefs of police, and a diverse spectrum of civic and advocacy organizations (emphasis mine).

One point of emphasis that I’ve made many times in print and in podcasts is that Roman Catholic Church-State is the premier globalist organization there is, a fact almost always overlooked, even by those who claim to be independent journalists and podcasters.  They simply do not have eyes to see the exceedingly great evil of the Vatican’s globalism, even as it stares them right in the face. 

I bring up the globalism of Rome, because there is another well-known globalist with connections to EIT, namely George Soros.  As Allan Wall, one of the few Evangelical writers on immigration not in thrall to Rome’s globalist immigration propaganda, noted in a 2015 article “Memo From Middle America: Trump Connects With Middle Americans. Southern Baptist ‘Inisder’ Russell Moore Connects With…George Soros,” EIT receives funding from George Soros, a globalist atheist.

So, we have EIT, which includes the influential Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention of which the prominent Russell Moore is currently president, connected both to the USCCB and George Soros, which never sleep in their efforts to subvert the Constitution of the United States of America and to bring about world government.  Both the USCCB and George Soros see immigration as a way of destabilizing America and other nation states to make it easier to fold them into their hoped-for global superstate.        

The Evil of Globalism

The 1648 Treat of Westphalia settled the Thirty Years’ War and ushered in the current system of international politics known as the Westphalian World Order.  The Thirty Years’ War was the first pan-European war and was a battle between nations to which the Reformation had come and the nations in subjection to the Pope.  Essentially, it was a war between Protestants and Catholics, and the Protestants won. 

The principal ideas of Westphalian World Order (WWO), are such that if you were you to explain it to people, many likely would respond that it’s just common sense.  Yet it took the Protestant Reformation and a major war to establish them in international law.  So what are the main ideas of WWO?  First, each state has sovereignty over its territory and domestic affairs, to the exclusion of all external powers.  Second, that each state, no matter how large or small, is equal in international law.   One implication of this is that supranational organizations such as the United Nations impinge on the sovereignty of nation states and are, therefore, to be avoided.

In his 2014 book World Order, Henry Kissinger remarked, “The Westphalian peace reflected a practical accommodation to reality, not a unique moral insight,” but this is incorrect.  The WWO is not merely a “practical accommodation to reality,” but an idea whose origins can be found in the Scriptures. 

In Genesis 11, we see man’s first attempt to build a global empire in the form of the Tower of Babel frustrated by God. The reason given is that, if they were to succeed, then, “nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”  To prevent the centralization of power and the evil that would follow from it, God confused the language of the people, scattering them into their own nations according to their languages.  Another reason for separating people into their own nations was, as the Apostle Paul noted in his address on Mars Hill, to cause them to seek the Lord.  “He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and ahs determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him.”

With these passages in mind, it seems that the nation state system that came out of the Peace of Westphalia was not so much a “practical accommodation to reality” as one of the implications of the widespread preaching of and belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Put another way, the WWO is one of the implications of Christianity.  If this is true, and I am persuaded that it is, then those individuals and organizations – individuals and organizations such as the afore mentioned George Soros and USCCB – are doing the devil’s work when they attempt to overthrow nation states to produce, as it were, their globalist Nirvana, which we could perhaps call Tower of Babel 2.0.

Mass, nation breaking, taxpayer subsidized immigration, migration and refugee resettlement are some of the most powerful tools in the toolbox of these wicked globalists.  That Donald Trump opposed these policies is likely one of the reasons he was targeted for removal by the globalists. 

To the degree that nominally Evangelical organizations such as EIT are aligned with George Soros and the USCCB, they share in their sins of immigration treason.  To the degree that ordinary Christians are co-opted by EIT and other Romanist, globalist front organizations, they too share in the sins of the immigration reason lobby. 

Protestants do not oppose immigration.  Indeed, America has a history of being exceedingly generous with its immigration policy, and this is due in large measure to its Christian heritage. But immigration, migration and refugee resettlement of the sort supported by the Biden administration, EIT and the USCCB is destructive of nations, including America, represents immigration treason, and should be soundly rejected by Christians.

Donald Trump with the Travel Ban Executive Order,

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

Welcome to the first in what I hope to be a recurring series of posts highlighting the close connection between the political and economic agenda of the Roman Catholic Church-State (RCCS) and the Biden administration.

In many ways, this series is a successor to the earlier series of posts I wrote in this space under the title Rome Watch, which explored the political and economic agenda pursued by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) with an eye to exposing their anti-American agenda hidden in plain sight. 

Indeed, it is shocking the degree to which the USCCB openly conspires against the best interests of the American people, while at the same time it receives almost no scrutiny whatsoever for its subversive policy stances. 

It seemed good to me, however, to update the title of this recurring series from Rome Watch to Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion in the first place, because the new title draws the readers attention to the long-running close connection between the Democratic party and the RCCS.  The saying, “rum, Romanism, and rebellion” is taken from a speech given by Presbyterian minister and Union Civil War veteran Dr. Samuel D. Burchard shortly before the 1884 presidential election. 

Although many Americans have heard the famous triplet, they have, at best, a vague sense where it came from or to what it originally applied.

DACA Demo_2018_06_28_Guardian

Pro-DACA demonstrators take over Hart Senate Office Building in Washington D.C., June 28, 2018.  According to The Guardian, the protesters filled the office building with chants denouncing Donald Trump and were arrested when they refused to leave. 

“On October 4, the USCCB, with other Catholic and evangelical partners, filed an amicus curiae brief in the cases [to oppose the repeal of DACA].”

    – The US Conference of Catholic Bishops

DACA, DACA, DACA. I heard quite a lot of that today in looking at the news. Given the generally low quality of the media narratives these days – you know, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA and now IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH – in some ways I’m actually glad to see DACA back in the news. If nothing else, it provides something of a diversion.

I was heartened also to see that the USCCB finally got it’s immigration groove back. It’s been a while since they’ve published their usual pro mass immigration / anti-American drivel, and I was starting to get concerned that the Treasonous Brood of Vipers (TBV) had lost their touch!

Migrants at Catholic Church_01

Honduran migrants rest in the gymnasium of a Catholic church in Guatamala, Oct. 16, 2018.  These migrants were part of the caravans organized by Pueblo Sin Fronteras, an organization affiliated with Centro Sin Fronteras, at whose facility in El Paso, TX four Roman Catholic bishops will host mass on 9/25/19 in connection with an event organized by the USCCB.  (Orlando Estrada/AFP/Getty Images)

In many ways, exposing the flagrant immigration treason of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is easy to the point of being an embarrassment. All one has to do is go to the USCCB’s media page, wait for the good bishops to drop their latest asinine press release, and, voila!, instant post.

The latest bit of immigration nonsense from the USCCB was posted yesterday, 9/23, and is titled “Media Advisory: Bishops to Hold Press Briefing During Pastoral Visit to El Paso, Las Cruces and Ciudad Juarez.”

As it turns out, the bishops of El Paso, San Jose, Victoria and Las Cruces will team up with Rev. Robert Stark, Regional Coordinator of the Vatican’s Section on Migrant and Refugees to host a mass followed by a press briefing.

The mass and presser, the release tells us, “will occur during the 2019 Pastoral Encounter with Migrants at the Border, which is organized by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) [aka The Treasonous Brood of Vipers (TBV), author] Subcommittee on the Pastoral Care of Migrants, Refugees and Travelers.”

Now don’t you just love the TBV’s euphemistic names for illegal immigrant invaders? They’re just migrants, refugees and travelers. Who could possibly object to that?

Anyway. Verbal smokescreens are all in a day’s work for the TBV. And while it’s good to point out their verbal sleight of hand, that’s not what’s really interesting about this press release.

At the bottom of the release, the TBV provides the date, time and place of the mass and press conference. Of particular interest is the place: Centro Sin Fronteras, which is located in El Paso.

So just what is the Centro Sin Fronteras (Center Without Borders)? According to Influence Watch, Centro Sin Fronteras was founded in Chicago – does anything good ever come from Chicago – in 1987 by some leftist woman Methodist pastor named Emma Lozano.

As the Influence Watch article goes on to note, Elvira Arellano formed the activist group La Familia Latina Unida as an expansion of Centro Sin Fronteras.

La Familia Latina Unida runs Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders).

And this brings us to the kicker: Pueblo Sin Fronteras was the lead group organizing the many migrant caravans that have forced their way across the southern border and into the US over the past year. I wrote in some detail about Pueblo Sin Fronteras last November. The organization even boasts about the caravans on their website.

If anyone harbors doubt that the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church-State is a driving force, and probably the main driving force, behind the migrant caravans and the massive migrant crisis on Americas southern border, the very words of the USCCB in the 9/23 press release should go a long way toward removing it.

Here you have four bishops and a priest affiliated with a Vatican hosting mass and a press conference at an organization affiliated with the group most responsible for organizing the massive migrant caravans which have afflicted our southern border over the past year.

Rome’s mass in El Paso is a massive fraud. It’s way past time that Americans wised up to Rome’s immigration treason.

The Big Lie

The “big lie” is a propaganda technique based on the supposed idea that, if one tells gigantic lies, those lies will gain acceptance because normal people can’t fathom that someone could make up such enormous falsehoods.

Whether the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is conscientiously practicing the big lie, I cannot say for sure. That said, there is a repeated idea put forward in their immigration propaganda, and in the immigration propaganda of the Roman Catholic Church-State in general, that could fairly be considered a big lie.

So what’s the big lie I’m talking about? It’s the USCCB’s insistence that it recognizes “the right of nations to control their borders in a just and proportionate manner.”

In two recent press releases by the USCCB on immigration enforcement actions taken by the Trump administration, the bishops have insisted that they do too believe that nations have a right to enforce their immigration laws. But what the USCCB grants with one hand it takes away with the other. Let’s look at a couple of recent statements from this group.

Janus

Two-faced Roman god Janus.  A model for the USCCB.

One could hardly find a better word than Janus-faced, meaning duplicitous or two-faced, to describe the men who comprise the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). For these guys truly are masters of appearing to look in all directions at once, of seeming to be all things to all men, while at the same time never deviating from their evil plans.

In this case, I’m speaking about their evil goal of Romanizing America through illegal immigration.

Census Citizenship

We’re often told that death and taxes are the only things certain in this life. Perhaps we should add a third item to this list: The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) taking the wrong side on the immigration issue.

As the USCCB whines in its latest press release, “Bishops Urge That All People Count And Must Be Included In Census Efforts.” Now if all one knew about the upcoming 2020 census was taken from this headline, one may fairly suppose that there was some nefarious plot to exclude certain people from being counted. But this would be incorrect.

So just what’s driving the bishops’ concern? The Trump administration’s proposal to put a question on the 2020 census asking if the person is a citizen.

But contrary to the rhetoric from the USCCB, the question does not exclude anyone.
