The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
Just this week, I returned home from our tour in the great state of Texas. Hot though it was (96 degrees), it was great to be a part of the great battle between good and evil, for we all know who wins the end game (James 1:22-25).
I have also seen that much has been sacrificed on the behalf of this country to turn in the day of battle when we should stand up and fight (Psalm 78:9) and fighting we are (Zechariah 4:6)!
While I have seen these things, there is this one thing I do know, for my Father is not a respecter of persons (Romans 2:11), what God did for less than 3 % of America’s population along with 13 colonies and 56 signers during the revolutionary war, He will do for us if we are willing to respond to the call and command (Isaiah 1:19-20; Exodus 23:20-33)!
On a national front this past week, we had ample opportunity to see what real leadership looks and acts like. These are the kinds of leaders who are not diplomatic, which is seduction in another guise, nor are they compromisers, which is two people getting to together to sit and agree on what they both know is wrong. In America, it is not hard to identify what a real leader looks and acts like (Matthew 7:16) because the state-controlled media (Isaiah 5:20) is right there to help you identify who they are by attacking them at every rightful step (Matthew 5:10)!
In America, we should know that the real task of a leader is to bring the people from where they are, and where they have been, to where they rightfully ought to be (Jeremiah 6:16). That is, if they can make out the difference between right and the wrong.
For example: If there were a coach in America that were to lose game after game, week after week, and year after year, the way the corrupt politicians are with America’s blood-bought freedoms, what do you suppose the American people would with that coach? They would fire that coach and replace him as soon as possible, and rightly so. How much more concerning the reality of life, rather than a game?
Of course, that is what the American people are attempting to do today with establishment politicians and their corruption. People are sick and tired of being sick and tired; tired of being lied too, manipulated, conned, coerced, and even extorted.
So what is needed? Real leaders!
The way this is being done today is that real leaders (Not paper tigers, not them that hide behind a microphone and no more, not them that are concerned about the approbation of men or about their own reputations Philippians 2:7) are beginning to stand up for the unpopular truth against popular error. And I thank God for it.
As President Benjamin Harrison said:
“The Law, the will of the majority expressed in orderly, constitutional methods, is the only King to which we bow.”
Leaders know that:
-You do not ask the devil for permission to obey God (Luke 10:19).
-You do not take counsel from your fears (2 Timothy 1:7).
-You are not called to lead up the consensus but rather to be a molder of consensus (Matthew 7:14; John 6).
-That where the battle rages, there loyalty is proved, and that you are to be steady on all fronts (Isaiah 50:7).
-To support and to practice right principles that the end result will never be the wrong results (Isaiah 40:8).
-America needs strong confident leaders (Proverbs 14:26), who are righteous and bold as lions (Proverbs 28:1).
The greatest leaders are always the best followers, the followers of Jesus Christ (John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 11:1).
America needs to know that God is willing to give us what we are willing to fight for (1 Timothy 6:12; Romans 1:16).

The Reprobates Who Govern Us
27 September, 2015 by Lee Duigon
My wife and I used to laugh ourselves silly over the Caligula episodes of “I, Claudius” when it was on TV. Ha, ha, ha—he’s declared himself a god! Now he’s made his horse a senator! Look at this, he’s changing the names of the months on the calendar! Oh, man, the guy is a riot!
But it doesn’t seem so funny now. What must it have been like, to be governed by a raving lunatic who had absolute power? And why did all those army officers, senators, lawyers, and rich, important people always try to humor Caligula and toady up to him, when they should have all defied him? How many of them was he able to murder before they finally turned on him?
Roman culture made this possible. Once upon a time, Roman culture made such things impossible. But it changed. And it kept on changing until they wound up with Caligula.
Our American culture has been changing fast. I remember when it was not only impossible, but unimaginable, for certain kinds of things to happen that now happen every day and are shrugged off, tolerated, or even celebrated.
Just a very few years ago Anthony Weiner’s political career crashed and burned because he wagged his flag at women who didn’t wish to see it. Today Donald Trump is excoriated by the media for calling Weiner a “perv sleazebag”. Huh! You mean he isn’t? But if he is neither a pervert nor a sleazebag, based solely on what he actually did, and more than once, then it has probably become impossible to become a pervert or a sleazebag—at least in our culture.
We live in the culture like fish live in water: or, in the case of some of our most prominent and influential citizens, like bacteria live in a petri dish.
A few weeks back The New York Post reported on “the top administrator in the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office” driving his wife insane by his “twisted sex demands”. This guy—whose job is to see that persons who break the law are punished—was a pip, described in his wife’s divorce petition as “predatory and extreme[ly] depraved.” You won’t believe the antics he got up to. And if his wife’s allegations are not true—well, all I can say is, she’s got very active imagination and should probably go to work for Hollywood… writing more sleaze that can be pumped into our culture and then into our heads.
Can we pull ourselves back from the brink of the abyss by obtaining more education? Surely you jest.
At the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, a highly-paid doofus who is “the vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion” (whatever the dickens that is), is exhorting students to jettison normal English pronouns and instead resort to idiotic “gender neutral” pronouns—like “ze” and “zis” and “xyr”. This is going to cost you how much in student debt? You think it’s going to make you smarter? Acquire wisdom by babbling?
Further down the education food chain—oops, shouldn’t have mentioned “food”—kids come back to public school and the same unappetizing Michelle Obama lunches that they rebelled against last year. Caligula never thought of meddling with the food eaten by ordinary Roman families, although he was known to poison a senator or two. But the Worst Lady, the president’s wife, whom no one voted for, who has no more lawful authority than you do, gets to meddle all the time.
What kind of people put up with this? Why, the same kind of people who put up with their “president” arbitrarily renaming major geographical features when the spirit movies him. Caligula did think of doing that, and did it often. Our emperor, or whatever he is, is only getting started. Today he renames Mt. McKinley “Denali.” Tomorrow, who knows? Which famous peak is going to become “Mt. Margaret Sanger,” as a way of paying tribute—over and above the half a billion dollars a year in public money—to Planned Parenthood?
We imbibe all this. We breathe it with the air. We debase our culture, debauch it, load it with frivolity, and then expect it to produce leaders and governors with anything but debased, debauched, and frivolous character? When they’re not doing evil, they occupy themselves with silliness.
Just look at them. Just take a long, hard look.
Obama Administration Enables ‘Boy Play’
27 September, 2015 by Matt Barber
God help us. Here’s what America’s newly homosexualized, “values neutral” military looks like.
Last week, in a strange fit of actual news reporting, the New York Times published an exposé revealing that, under this Obama administration, the Department of Defense is not only permitting the homosexual abuse of little boys at the hands of Muslim allies in Afghanistan, but is effectively facilitating it. A handful of U.S. servicemen have had enough and are courageously blowing the whistle on this unimaginably evil policy. Naturally, they’re being punished and drummed out of the service for doing so.
“Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population,” reports the Times. “The practice is called bacha bazi, literally ‘boy play,’ and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene – in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records. …”
“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father, Gregory Buckley Sr., who recounted his conversation with the Times. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture,” Buckley added.
Isn’t multiculturalism peachy?
I sat down with Dr. Judith Reisman, research law professor and director of the Liberty Center for Child Protection, to discuss this shocking development. “Unfortunately, this has been going on for years, with the knowledge of our American government,” she told me. “I just received an email from one of my German child-protection colleagues. She included several links to violent torture films and photos of hundreds of real children being brutalized by animals in horrific scenes. There is no way the FBI, CIA, Interpol and all other policing agencies do not know about this, which is readily accessible.
“This is glamorization of ’50 Shades of Grey’ novels and films acted out on children, chained to beds, tortured, never to recover,” she added. “It’s a natural outgrowth of generations of Western ‘fee sex’ conditioning via the ‘sex science’ of violent bi/homosexual pedophile Alfred Kinsey in 1948 and his ‘pamphleteer’ Hugh Hefner, beginning in 1953. Kinsey’s claim he proved ‘children are sexual from birth’ has been supplemented by slow, devious conditioning of future generations through child pornography in Playboy. Can people be so brainwashed that they really believe we have always been so demonic?” she asks.
Indeed, Kinsey, though married to a woman who took part in his many filmed “scientific” orgies, was a promiscuous homosexual and sadomasochist. He managed to completely upend and twist the world’s perception of human sexuality in the 1950s and ’60s with his world famous “Kinsey Reports.”
Even today, most are completely unaware that during his tenure at Indiana University, Kinsey facilitated, with stopwatches and ledgers, the systematic sexual abuse of hundreds, if not thousands, of children and infants – all in the name of science.
Among other things, Kinsey asserted that children are “sexual from birth.” He further concluded, based upon experiments he directed and documented in his infamous Table 34, that adult-child sex is harmless, even beneficial, and described child “orgasm” as “culminating in extreme trembling, collapse, loss of color, and sometimes fainting. …” Many children suffered “excruciating pain,” he observed, “and [would] scream if movement [was] continued.” Some “[would] fight away from the [adult] partner and may make violent attempts to avoid climax, although they derive[d] definite pleasure from the situation.”
Yeah. Sounds like it.
Disturbing though this may be, what’s equally disturbing is that nearly all of today’s liberal “comprehensive sex education” curricula – such as that pushed by extremist groups like the National Education Association (NEA), Planned Parenthood and the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) – is derived entirely from the criminally fraudulent, pro-pedophile “research” of Alfred Kinsey.
What’s even more disturbing is that, in addition to the DOD, Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has likewise embraced the debunked Kinsey sex-education model and has long pushed curricula based upon it.
You may recall, for instance, that during his first term, the Obama administration provided on the HHS “Questions and Answers About Sex” website, a “Quick Guide to Healthy Living” section which, like Kinsey, outrageously claimed that “Children are human beings and therefore sexual beings … which is healthy and normal.”
And what do “sexual beings” do? Well, they have sex, of course. “It’s hard for parents to acknowledge this,” admitted the page.
So we shouldn’t be surprised in the least that, since Obama repealed the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy a few years back, not only have we seen a massive spike in male-on-male homosexual assaults in the armed services, we now discover that this administration is looking the other way as similar homosexual assaults are being perpetrated against children.
After all, “Children are sexual from birth,” right? They’re “born that way.”
And so are the men who rape them.
Don’t be a pedophobe, you bigot.
