Despite that Obama’s much vaunted healthcare rollout has been a fiasco right from the start, his administration fully expects to weather the growing storm in its’ usual manner---by brazenly lying, rationalizing, brow-beating, appeals to greed and envy, scape-goating, and running out the clock.
In his op-ed, “Lying to Save Their Skins,” Matthew Vadum writes that America’s first Marxist President has been able to get away with wrongdoing by lying to our complicit mainstream media,
“….which he knows has little interest in conducting good faith investigations of the Benghazi saga, Fast and Furious, multiple IRS abuses, and various other administration-wide scandals that have become too numerous to count. Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, is no different. “(Vadum, FrontPage Magazine, Nov. 5, 2013)
Even in the face of overwhelming evidence that the president has lied to the public with his oft-stated promise that,
“….if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period … If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period,’ and slight variations thereof, the media refuses to call Obama’s deliberate misrepresentations lies.”
Therefore since mendacity,
“….stalling, and stonewalling have worked well as part of a public relations strategy for the Obama administration over its first five years… there is no point in changing a winning formula now…”
Obama as Vadum said, is America’s first Marxist President. As such he carries the banner of the Revolution whose utopian fantasy and meaning are nicely summarized by John Lennon’s song ‘Imagine:’
“….no heaven, no hell, no religion, no countries, no possessions, ‘nothing to kill or die for’ (no right or wrong), no past, no future (all the people living for today.” (Liberal Treason Explained, Jim O’Neill, Canada Free Press, Oct. 29, 2012)
At the deepest, most important level of all, the Revolution is really about the human condition after the Fall and the causes of evil and suffering as defined by self-centered, rebellious, covetous men and women.
From the moment that Adam and Eve were ushered out of paradise, men began complaining:
"Why must we die? Why must there be decay? Why must we work? Why does he have (fill in the blanks) but I do not? That's unfair! Why can't we say, do and have whatever we desire? If it feels good (libidinous impulses) then why shouldn't we do it? Why must there be authority, rules, norms, absolutes, and consequences? Why does it have to be this way? Why can't it be the way we want it to be?"
And finally: Who or what is the cause of our suffering?
From Ham to Nimrod to Karl Marx and contemporary revolutionaries and apostates, the answer is the transcendent Authority of God the Father Almighty together with the fallen condition of man and the world:
"Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God." He "changed the government into tyranny" in order to turn them away from God and make them dependent upon his own power. He also would be revenged upon God "if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach!" And he would "avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers." (Jewish historian Josephus cited in" Who was Nimrod?" Dr. David Livingston)
Karl Marx dreamt of ruining the world created by God the Father and proclaiming himself 'god.' In his poem "Human Pride," he writes that after ruining the world:
"I will wander godlike and victorious /Through the ruins of the world/ And, giving my words an active force/ I will feel equal to the Creator." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, pp. 30-31)
Marx's comrade in arms, Mikhail Bakunin, aligned himself with the Devil and declared:
"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, ibid, p. 27)
After confessing to his 'cosmic authority' problem, New York University professor Thomas Nagel admits:
"I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers. It isn't just that I don't believe in God (but) that I hope there is no God! I don't want there to be a God; I don't want the universe to be like that." (The Rage Against God, Peter Hitchens, p. 150)
It is when the terrible-willed and their passive-aggressive followers — most generally pleasure-seeking hedonists — become possessive of the things of this world and resentful of the "way things are" that they rebel against God the Father and raise up new Towers of Babel — separate paradises — here on earth. With Nimrod it was Babylon. Marx's Tower was the materialist Communist worker's paradise while Hitler's Babel was his socialist Third Reich. Contemporary ‘gays’ are raising up a new Sodom and Gomorrah while the occult New Age heralds the coming of the final Tower — a planetary communist paradise whose cost of admission is Luciferic initiation.
In the preface to "The Silmarillion," the book of beginnings (Genesis account) that sets the stage for the subsequent Lord of the Rings trilogy, J.R.R. Tolkien observes of the terrible-willed:
"(they) will rebel against the laws of the Creator — especially against mortality." Possessiveness toward the things of this world alone or together with hatred of death and decay "will lead to the desire for Power, for making the will more quickly effective — and so to the Machine (magic)." (p. xiii)
Tolkien defines magic as the abuse of God-given talents and intellectual abilities and other powers fueled by the:
"….corrupted motive of dominating: bull-dozing the real world, or coercing other wills" by way, for example, of ideologies and evolutionary theories designed for the unmaking of the world as it is.
In other words, when pride, covetousness, jealousy, lust, wrath, and envy inflate to monstrous proportions it is then that the terrible-willed declare the death of God, usurp His powers, declare themselves gods and invent reality-denying ideologies such as Hegel’s dialectic, dialectical materialism, natural selection, genetic determinism, socialism, and evolutionism to seduce and coerce other wills:
"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma. " (Anton Pannekoek, Marxism And Darwinism, Translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)
And of course straight-forward questions are absolutely forbidden lest truth expose the corpus of lies, hate, hypocrisy, deceit and delusion underlying and fueling the 'Machine.'
On the subject of the Machine, Herbert Schlossberg perceptively observed:
"Exalting mankind to the status of deity...dates from the farthest reaches of antiquity, but its development into an ideology embracing the masses is a characteristic of modernity." (Herbert Schlossberg, cited in The Seduction of Christianity, Dave Hunt and T.A. McMahon)
Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn describes terrible-willed revolutionaries as the masters of the world who, bearing no evil within themselves, have declared that all the evils of the world are caused not by man's fallen human condition but by deterministic external or natural causes — unjust, unfair systems, and enemies of the State.
In his book, "Cry Havoc: The Great American Bring-Down and How it Happened," Ralph de Toledano clearly identifies the unfair, unjust systems and the enemies of the State who adhere to them:
"….the morality that derives from the Old and New Testaments, the traditional family, the respect for the past as a guide to the future, the restraint of man's baser instincts, and a socio-political organization which guaranteed freedom without license. Of these obstacles, the two greatest were God and the family." (p. 26)
Former atheist Peter Hitchens notes that throughout the West, Revolutionaries are hostile to Christian theism because it:
"....is the religion of their own homes and homeland, the form in which they have encountered — and generally disliked and resented — the power of God in their own lives.....the Left sympathizes with Islam because (it is) the enemy of their (own enemy, the Christian culture)." (Hitchens, p. 131)
Hostility to God and Christianity is not confined to just the Left but shared equally with GOP atheist insiders. Because of their hostility to God and Christianity they hold in utter contempt the middle-class, mainly Christian constituents (i.e., Tea Party) they must rely upon to be re-elected.
Solzhenitsyn summarized the whole meaning of the Revolution when he described its’ three main causes as rebellion against God the Father quickly followed by apostasy and denial of man's fallen condition. This allows the revolutionaries and apostates to comfortably "forget" that evil cuts right through the hearts of all men, themselves included.
Peter Hitchens writes that all who have comfortably forgotten their own fallen condition yet who have the good fortune to live in a society governed by religious belief:
"....may feel free from absolute moral bonds, while those around them are not. This is a tremendous liberation for anyone who is even slightly selfish. And what clever person is not imaginatively and cunningly selfish?" (Peter Hitchens, p. 148)
The Revolution and the murderous utopian systems spawned by it are spiritual diseases of fallen men. The only cure is spiritual regeneration through submission to God the Father Almighty.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who returned to the Christian faith in the Gulag, sets out a spiritual way forward:
“…the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart, in (its) preference for specific good or evil…this (is) the most reliable key we have. The social theories that promised so much have demonstrated their bankruptcy, leaving us at a dead end. The free people of the West could reasonably have been expected to realize that they are beset by numerous freely nurtured falsehoods, and not to allow lies to be foisted upon them so easily. All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we direct our consciousness, in repentance to the Creator of all. Without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain….We must…recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here in particular we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our daily unthinking selfishness, are pulling tight the noose (and) we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. Only in this way can our eyes be opened to the errors of this unfortunate twentieth century and our hands be directed to setting them right.” (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)
In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Alexander Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,
“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin. We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always claiming that we alone are in the right. Repentance is the first bit of firm ground underfoot, the only one from which we can go forward not to fresh hatreds but to concord. Repentance is the only starting ground for spiritual growth. For each and every individual. And every trend of social thought.” (ibid)
