Topic category:  Constitution/Constitutional Crises

Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarians just don’t get the nature of the battle with the left

If we fail to understand the nature of the battle, it might be because we confuse religious with spiritual. The left, from ACLU to the most eugenic communist in the White House uses religion against us. If we understand its nature, we have all the weapons needed to win this war. Instead, we keep trying to reason with the unreasonable. Political strategies, necessary as they are, are the product of the exerciser’s spiritual mindset. It is spiritual warfare that was declared against us. We need to use righteous political strategies instead of playing their game. It worked before as our Founders declared independence from the king and his minions.

If we fail to understand the nature of the battle, it might be because we confuse religious with spiritual. The left, from ACLU to the most eugenic communist in the White House uses religion against us. If we understand its nature, we have all the weapons needed to win this war. Instead, we keep trying to reason with the unreasonable. Political strategies, necessary as they are, are the product of the exerciser’s spiritual mindset. It is spiritual warfare that was declared against us.

We need to use righteous political strategies instead of playing their game. It worked before as our Founders declared independence from the king and his minions. There are three good reasons;

1.We’re dealing with the grand master of “Rules for Radicals” in Obama. Its author, Saul Alinsky dedicated “Rules” to Lucifer. Its tactics are Luciferian.

2.Islamist’s join them in the Culture of Death, adding to “progressives’” disdain for human life and dignity; their believing it a great eternal act to blow oneself up to kill infidels and other Muslims they disagree with.

3.The war for the world is joined by fascists in high finance and Islamists seeking to fulfill their dream of a world wide caliphate. Both contenders see the United States as the enemy and a useful tool. Both see a drastic reduction in world human population by any and all means as critical to their new worlds.

I was given a paper in 1973 by the late Bishop John R. Sheets, SJ, who was mentored in part by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. Sheets in turn mentored Chicago’s current Francis Cardinal George. It discussed the rise of Islam as a world power. I incorporated it in 2 books that have turned out to be somewhat prophetic. It expressed God’s great love for the highly subjugated Muslim people, but also warned of the stated goals of their more radical leaders’ “laying waste to the world and all that is in it!”

Since Sharia is the legal element of the Qur’an, imposition of Sharia is followed by imposition of Islamic rule and practice. There are measures for dealing with those who fail to knuckle under (convert) by death or taxation and restriction. The answer lies in the covenants God made with Adam and Eve, Isaac and Ishmael of the Hebrew Bible, and historical events few have understood to date. So far, American efforts in blood and treasure to control or guide the outcome have only led to strengthening the cause for a worldwide caliphate based on Sharia. This situation has accelerated tenfold under the Obama Administration. Does someone have eyes on that Supreme Caliph chair?

How is the battle joined? Listed below are the basic tenets of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” Some call it good political strategy, which it is for evil purposes. I call it spiritual warfare. Think of these as they are applied daily to overwhelm our system of government and the freedoms many have fought and died for. (Note: You and righteous elected, hired and military people are the “enemy” referred to here. My comments are in (parentheses))

1.“Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” (And boy have we let them bamboozle us with political correctness! and the ACLU)

2.“Never go outside the expertise of your people. (They do it consistently with no shame, even when proven wrong – as always - in health, welfare, education, climate change, gun control, Arab Spring, religious freedom, etc., then lied about – They consistently get away with that terrible combination of ignorance and arrogance.)

3.“Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. (Not likely – if we use it.)

4.“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. (We should, but not as they interpret them! Declaration, Constitution and Scripture applied wisely)

5.“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” (Ask Sarah Palin or any conservative woman, Congress or any who oppose them)

6.“A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” (He who laughs last laughs best!)

7.“A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. (Exceeds their own expertise and is ultimately exposed for the lies the tactic is built upon. Then it really becomes a drag! Note all the exposes’ of lies surrounding “global warming.”)

8.“Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.” (Sandy Hook Elementary is a perfect example. A daily dose of new crises, talking points with the complicit 5th Column in the mainstream media)

9.“The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” (Health care, fiscal cliff, debt ceiling, ad nauseum)

10.“The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. (They are masters at it, but when their house of cards crumbles, they’ll cry like babies.)

11.“If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… (Love conquers all, but tough love is what is needed here.)

12.“The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” (With cadres “eating out the peoples’ substance,”[D of I] they are ready every day with thousands of new rules and highly paid but ignorant operatives to seek to enforce them.)

13.”Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” (Republicans have been suckered into this deep freeze for decades with the only reprieve being under President Ronald Reagan. They will never love you. The 5th Column media and Academia will never be on your side until their own existence is threatened.) Ronald Reagan knew how to cut their legs off with a smile (didn’t even need one of Obama’s alleged crooked surgeons!).

I’ve written and am polishing up a “Political Theory of Relativity” that takes us from the true trickle down economics of the “progressive” multistory outhouse to a fountain of opportunity and prosperity. It’s the product of years of study and application and a recent revelation. The problem is how to get it out there even for lively transformation.
