Depending upon “who you are” being PC or politically correct, which was designed to not make people “offensive” to others; is a form of controlling freedom of expression.
The first amendment in the United States was designed primarily for the protection of dissenting thought, and unpopular speech, both in the marketplace of ideas as well as within the press.
PC seeks to stifle any decent in reason, feelings, beliefs, and individual cognition! I call it Painful Control or Painful Cognition. Political Correctness is the antitheses of what the founders of the U.S. Constitution had envisioned! In fact, it is so destructive to individual liberty that every tyrannical government in history has employed its power to various degrees.
The NAZI’s used it, various Communists use it, Dictators use it, as well as socialists, as it effectively “shuts up” any opposition to the controlling powers. This PC tactic controls the textbooks which are put into print for students, educators, news reports, advertisement, music, and all speech in general.
Therefore, people like, Nimrod, Nero, Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, and others all employed “Political Correctness” tactics starting with marginalization of certain groups of people, and later torture and even mass executions of all conceived enemies.
Perhaps many would consider these extreme examples of PC, but the principle is the same – control over people.
The early European settlers were for the most part people, believers of the Bible, who “constituted” by consent how they would be ruled by government. The founding fathers took this “new idea” of personal freedom into the public press for distribution amongst “the masses” so to receive feed back on their ideas from the public; this was known as the Federalist Papers.
With extensive study of past secular governments; in combination with past kingdoms from the scriptures, combined with their own research and history from the day; they drafted the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and our United States “Constitution” – which was unlike any government which had existed before, all based upon individual freedom.
I really must question if educators, writers, and especially modern-day sociologist, even understand these founding principles, once called “inalienable rights” by the founders of this democratic republic? If they do, then I would call them subversives. If they do not, then they are simply ignorant of our history.
I submit to you; it may be a combination of a deliberate subversive movement coupled with revisionist history in dumbing down the American public towards a long-awaited global takeover!
I believe that even the removal of teaching cursive writing (script) in our schools, is not because it is no longer needed in the electronic age, but is much more sinister – it is so that future generations will no longer be able to read, understand nor write historical western documentation of our past! I think that all parents should insist upon the modern education system reintroducing these lessons in preservation of the understanding of humanity gone before us.
I must add some scripture: Hosea 4:6 KJV
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Isaiah 5:13 KJV
13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
Allow me to interject; I hope that PC will never interfere with Biblical understanding, or freedom from the Holy Spirit of the Lord in the edification of His church. Always remember, oppression of truth is of the Devil, but freedom of conscience is of the Lord.
Saving the Republic
This is a fascinating video below: marking the significance of 911 to America, by Rabi Jonathan Cahn.
It is a warning for repentance; it shows the birth of our economic strength in New York when Henry Hudson sailed up the river and founded Manhattan with a trade station on September 11, 1609 this was “the gate” later having two “Twin Towers” the entrance to America’s economic power!
The Pentagon began on September 11, 1941 as a Military Superpower; this was predicated by God, to a nation’s founding once dedicated by Washington’s inauguration on 26 Wall Street, Financial District, Manhattan, New York City on April 30, 1789. Washington warned not to turn away from God, or we would face destruction.
The new financial group was known as the “Buttonwood” group (Sycamore tree) later called Wall Street. On September 11, 1789 Alexander Hamilton was named the first U.S. Secretary to the Treasury.
All this represents the blessings and downfall of America as a Superpower to the world, the symbolism is reflective of the warnings given to Israel before her destruction.
It was a Sycamore tree (the Biblical symbol of blessing) which was destroyed in Manhattan on September 11, 2001, along with the Pentagon as a wall of Military might. 9-11-2001: was only the beginning of judgment towards America in 7 year cycles– (Biblical Jubilee) which rather could have been a renewal of blessings if we had repented from our wickedness instead!
The Harbinger II : Part 1,2,3 with Dr. James Dobson
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
I could go on and on writing verses (like the link holds above) yet it is fruitless for the heart which has become hardened to God!
As an accredited (Reformed) minister, I have watched the world spiral slowly downwards away from the Lord God into liberal relativism or pluralism; there is no anchor of truth broadly, only a consistent drifting away from the Lord and His Holy Righteousness, which is only made complete in Christ!
Alas, most conservative, or extensively Christian website are marked as “Ultra-Right” websites, often said to be fake or extremist in content! I have personally been witnessing that most web advisors increasingly mark such pages as Dangerous to your computer, citing everything from Phishing scams (Like Sean Hannity’s new book – Live free of Die) or the “forced closed – for content violation website” AMERICA’S FRONTLINE DOCTORS, which was forced to move to (I believe PJ medias) SUMMIT NEWS website, because of a BREITBART NEWS live broadcast on Monday, July 27, 2020: listed, then later taken down by Facebook, including removing Tweets by President Trump – it had 17 Million Views!
Then Twitter, YouTube, and some other “Big 6” web advisor browsers marked the new America’s Frontline Doctors web page as Malicious Sites with having Trojan Horses, Viruses… which exploit security vulnerabilities in browsers or other applications!
World Net Daily (WND), another Christian based conservative news site, is described as “ an American news and opinion website and online news aggregator which has been described as “fringe” and far right as well…”
Jihad Watch is a blog run by Robert B. Spencer (who’s books are listed in FBI training materials) has been described as an anti-Muslim conspiracy website, pushing “Islamophobia”. Yet Robert Spencer is a devout Christian man stating that he is pushing “the ‘good’ kind of Islamophobe” in an attempt to warn the (Western) World of the dangers of Jihad.
Other Christian site like Dr. James Dobson’s Focus on the Family are increasingly marked as extreme and dangerous, although they have been around for years, in helping families raise children, some having specific needs.
What I am witnessing is a tightening of the Christian informed culture, as being biased and bigoted, not because they have changed their positions; but because the world is becoming increasingly hostile towards them!
This election year, with many failed attempts to remove the President of the United States, it is increasingly obvious the lengths that the left and Globalist will go to in dividing and destroying the country, and even the world in dictating their policies – which have even taken form of protecting the environment, food water and population control.
Oftentimes Christian people like to remove themselves from events of the world, calling them “worldly”, and indeed they are, yet calling events worldly does not negate the ungodly impact upon the world while standing for the truth of God.
We are all responsible for moving and abiding in Christ for others, in all our endeavors while standing against evil. It seems to me the so-called “ultra-right sites” is merely a reflection of just how far left the Country (and World) has drifted away from God’s righteousness.
This is specifically true on the internet, which ever-increasing calls evil good, and good evil: albeit for the love of money, power, and control!
Listen to doctors who make no financial or political gain in dealing with COVID-19. Their “proof is in the pudding” in saving numerous lives daily, who often other doctors won’t see for fear of being financially ruined – or even worse! Always remember, controlling information is power!
Produced by BREITBART NEWS; this video was live on July 21, 2020
NOTICE: This video has been taken down by Facebook now, with Twitter, YouTube now censoring it, to include removing Tweets by President Trump – it had 17 Million Views!
The new website is now: americasfrontlinedoctorsummit.com ❎ Yet some browsers may claim it is a Dangerous Link. Still, other platforms say that these doctors don’t know what they are talking about!
It is a sad day when American doctors can no longer innovate treatments or even cures for disease – just like they have done for over 100 years: prior to the “Big Six” media controls. So, do you think this is politically motivated? You watch, you decide!
Maybe if we keep our mouths shut, no one will notice that we belong to the Lord…? That sounds like Peter, prior to Pentecost!
[PS; I forgot to mention energy & environmental controls as well – towards the end of the video.]

I have discovered over the years that when I get a deep spiritual pain to my heart because of something someone has said to me, it is because they are attacking Christ within me! This is a very distinctive feeling unlike any other. We all have disagreements, but an attack in our spirit is nothing less than spiritual warfare given by the spirit of anti-Christ! *I want to thank Will Johnson, of Unite America First; for inadvertently showing me this on one of his videos.
Who will be on top? That is the consistent question I have experienced with every human being within my life, and it is a carnal need to reign over others.
From sibling rivalries to the workplace, from the job site to the pulpit, from ethnic groups to politicians, it always the same power struggle – especially in an election year.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
People used to be a little more gracious and even respectful of their fellow man and (woman). Children used to look up to older and wiser people – even the elderly… but not so much nowadays.
The content of one’s character used to make the difference; and it was not just in hollow words, but rather in action. As a whole, most people who merited a position – as a doctor for example, had to pay the price of hard work and study to rise to the top of their professions, and they could not skip corners while doing so.
Once you start compromising with meriting a position for the appeasement of others – you have just destroyed the integrity of that position earned. I was a marine engineer, so I will start first with the field which I am most familiar with.
I started off learning to be a sailor, I was taught the ropes by my father. As a teenager I experienced a hurricane while at anchor in a cove of my family’s sailboat. The hurricane force winds picked up a two-man lifeboat tied on back and used it just like a kite above us. I tried to pull it back down, but my Dad just grabbed he knife and cut the line, sending it rolling over the water like a tire rolling downhill! When we got back into port the next day boats from marinas were beached and crushed in all fashions, I am sure costing the owners millions of dollars.
My point is, I had to learn how to be a sailor first by experience and then by some more formal training I learned later in the Coast Guard. I bounced back and forth from my shipboard positions from a boatswain’s position to an engineer. Each time I learned more and more what I was doing and became more proficient at whatever it was I focused upon.
What really started to annoy me after my time in the Coast Guard was human politics. I often think about the (liberal) leadership of the men who hired me at the Maritime Museum, they loved my work as it made them look good to others; their vessels being well painted polished and most importantly functional. Then came the social programs, senior aids set up by the City, youth training and work for the more unfortunate high school students.
For the most part this was fine with me, and I was able to develop some deep friendships in generally guiding people in different tasks of deck maintenance, and an understanding of basic shipboard piping systems and machinery.
One day an old inland buoy tender took on some water rather quickly; I grabbed Patrick who was a rather big kid, and he helped me haul dewatering pumps to the scene, and running the equipment as I frantically resealed the seems leaking between the planks!
Patrick and I were very satisfied with what we had achieved in saving the old boat from sinking! But then came in the “Who’s going to be on top” political posturing; I couldn’t believe the results when the museum supervisors returned the next morning. It turns out there was a big scene made on the pier in front of patrons of jumping up and down by the woman who took care of cleaning inboard. It seems in my rush to grab Patrick to dewater the boat, that he was sorely missed in his deck swabbing routine!
I was called to the office; it seems they wanted me to apologize for saving our little inland buoy tender from sinking! First it was the museum director which I explained I simply had no choice but to act immediately to save the boat. I thought it was settled; until the assistant director called me into his office. I told him the same story I told the director; but tears soon fell from my coworker _ and I was told “now, now, look what you made her do”!
The next problem of “who going to be on top” was from an older man, a veteran of WW2 in Saipan. Our relationship started off well enough, but he was a very proud man who knew little about seamanship, engineering or maintenance, in which I was instructed to perform years prior to the gentleman showing up on site. Incidentally, the old inland buoy tender later sank at the pier – as I was pulled off from taking responsibility for it!
I don’t wish to get too personal, but he liked to drink; I guess like many an old veteran who have seen the horrors of war. But all I knew at the time was that he wanted my position aboard ship. I showed up two hours earlier and left two hours later than the rest. But I didn’t mind, I needed the job, and loved the old ships, and never had challenged the wisdom of my supervisors. I was still young strong and dumb – as far as what I was forced to do, and sometimes beyond safety standards of the day (like going up in the rigging without a safety harness), yet I did what I was told to do in my 20’s. One day I had to organize a paint party aloft (on a raft) in painting the side of our submarine. The problem was I had a student who refused to out on a life jacket, so I let him board our raft without it. That was a big mistake, yet nothing was said and we went to painting. If memory serves me correctly, the raft hit a wake from a power boat. The big kid suited up in work coverall fell overboard; and to make matters worse, I soon discovered he could not swim!
I knew enough not to jump in after him, (for fear he would pull me under with him) so I grasped for him as he surfaced for air. It was only upon the second try that I was able to grab him as I knew where he would surface the second time!
I pulled him aboard the raft, and we secured operations. The good Lord was with us that day, for if the teen had drowned, well I’m not sure what would have happened to me or the supervisors of the museum. I can tell you one thing however: they were not happy that OSHA was called in the next day! The Captain was hit with the safety violations that were consistently overlooked, and as the inspectors exclaimed; we have heard it all before, “I’ve sailed the Seven Seas” nonsense!
It only got worse for me, the senior aid who lived aboard was given charge over me; I resented how he sharp-shot all that I did, and I was even asked by him “what project I was going to do the next day”, then he started the job himself to purposely undermine me. One day I was told to go do a job by the old soldier, and I did it. When I got back, he asked me if I had any questions? I said, Yes, why couldn’t you have done that job? With that he picked up a wooden chair and came after me; nothing happened to him, but I was told to wear my hard hat! Real funny hu? Have I mentioned all the workforce was Black besides myself, it shouldn’t make any difference, but it enevidably did. The next day the senior aid (who was not even a City Employee) was made the work supervisor, he started ranting and raving about his perceived racism on my part. I think, it was simply a case of me not liking (the stunts that he pulled on me at every opportunity to aggrandise himself). So we all just sat and listened to our new boss of the job, as I looked over to another black man who I worked with quite frequently.
The Captain came down the ladder and was terribly angry that no work was being done. Then he immediately was told by the senior aid that I was a racist; then my coworker spoke up (who was also a senior aid) exclaiming – “Captain, I never had a problem with Roland”! He saved my job that day, and I am most grateful to the man who stood up for my character when I most needed him! Sometimes perception is everything, but it may not be the truth – but only a perception. Racism has always been a problem with humanity, just take World War Two as an example, it was filled with racism on all sides.
Unfortunately, it is inherent in the hearts of fallen man, and has always been divisive. And like any noble undertaking, it takes work within individuals of all ethnic groups and cultures to overcome. No one despite their “virtue signaling” is above falling victim to this condition, if for no other reason than growing up in a specific culture, or perhaps just insensitivity towards others; which is often the result of youth. Politicians use it to swing votes, tyrants use it as a mien to sow discord and cause political uprisings, and all for that same old reason — WHO WILL BE ON TOP.
I was a trained Equal Opportunity Representative to the Commander while in the Army, we were taught when cultures collide, people divide. I was chosen (I believe) as a favor from our Black First Sergeant, in a predominantly African American unit. He understood my character and he also understood the stress soldiers would have, some of which would use racism as an excuse to get out of being disciplined for shirking from their responsibilities. I later became a Chaplain’s Assistant which also required Equal Opportunity training.
The Bible teaches that Nation is translated ETHOS (in the Greek) and is where we get the term Ethnic Group from. In Matthew 24:7 “For Nation will rise against Nation and Kingdom against Kingdom and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers’ places” –  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. prior to the return of the Lord.
In the end of days the Bible speaks about wickedness and lawlessness, perhaps this “New World Order” championed amongst many politicians who are pushing for this (“new world orders leader”) – who will eventually pose as God before the end of the age?
This is what Satan has always wanted; to be GOD upon the earth, and I suspect he will soon be getting his wish – at least for a short time, prior to 2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Peace on earth, Good will towards men – from another fallible human being…
It is most interesting to me that the scriptures talk about a humble and contrite heart (faith of a child) being required to follow the Lord. In contrast to this, Pride and coupled with Elitism seems to me to be the way of controlling others – even as a small god. The “new world leader” will be revealed as a caring and loving sort towards humanity, but the Bible later speaks about an abrupt change of demeanor as one demanding to be worshipped as God: or face death! The first step in controlling people is to be able to track them, and that you cannot buy or sell without the “Mark of the Beast” (Satan). The Lord will crush him with the brightness of his coming, but in my estimation, we have to have a build up first towards global tracking and control – for the “Good” of all Humanity!
If we agree that all of this lockdown fervor can be used as a means of conditioning the American people to willingly give up some of their liberties and rights, then the discussion naturally goes to the question, “What are we being conditioned for?” We’ll answer that question in this episode of Activate America, patriotically staying active during COVID-19 lockdown.

Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker talks about the Seven Judgments in the Bible.
Out of all the teachings we may hear today, I believe this basic understanding is MOST needed to walk as son’s and daughters of God.
The fear of COVID 19 seems to have stopped cold many in their tracks, but our “earthly security is but an illusion” unless we understand the greater good at work among us! I attempt to explain just how we might get paralyzed with fear, and the actual position we find ourselves in.
Trump-Tribulation? Is based on my understanding of history and the development of industrialized cultures. Without the ability to harvest fossil fuels for heat engines, metal production, and electricity the industrial revolution would have never taken place, and even the discoveries in modern medicine would never have occurred. The Lord God made all things in which man has developed, and this was no accident to the modern age which we have enjoyed. Unfortunately, Humanism wishes to be the dominating philosophy within the postmodern world and has “dethroned” the idea of using the Bible and a righteous God, so that politically motivated Communism might overcome this “religion” of truth – with a lie, leading humanity ever closer to the final trumpet.
The whole basis of understanding today, is completely different since before the Renaissance period in the 15th Century. Humanism has now nearly completely replaced the understanding of fallen humanity, and the Lord God’s provision for sin. In my estimation, history has disproved any ideal of men evolving, or governing themselves successfully without the acknowledgment of God; and need for His forgiveness to a fallen world.
Allow me to give a quick overview of what was once understood by Western Cultures in the world, and why it is important to have Nation States, law enforcement and Armies.
Based upon the Bible, which was once the largest selling book in the world; man understood that humanity was inherently wicked, because of the fall from grace in the garden of Eden.
The world is a sin cursed place, along with fallen humanity. Governments (some better than others) were given by the Lord, so that we might have some assemblance of order, and so that anarchy would be curtailed.
An assemblance of an authority structuring has always been necessary to keep the peace, for without it man and the world would disintegrate into chaos!
Godly leadership is based upon servitude to people; as in putting the welfare of others above oneself. This is what makes a good leader, and not a selfish, greedy, or power-hungry representative.
The humanistic teachings of evolution, which was embraced by Karl Marx in the 19th Century has overrun our education systems globally; and now the “theory of evolution” is embraced as fact.
Marx understood that the best way to overthrow the idea of a righteous God, was to teach there is no God, and that man is supreme. This also creates a false premise which teaches that mankind is evolving and becoming more and more competent to rule the earth in goodness.
This is all “the big lie” from the Father of lies – the Devil. It is my opinion that one of the reasons the Bible speaks of wars and rumors of wars, is because of a global power grab in just who will play God!
There will be no peace until the prince of peace returns to judge the living and the dead.
You have heard it said that “one man’s cult is another man’s religion”… This is only true to the natural mind; however, the Bible teaches in Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Our relationship with the Lord is key, as in Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. This is not “necessarily” speaking about fleshly desires of the heart, rather it is speaking about being shown the infinite mercy, love, and truth in being grounded in the Lord, and sometimes in receiving what we desire.
This is a spiritual condition which only the Lord can show us, (often in doctrines) and is not found in the futility of our natural understanding.
Proper understanding of the Holy Spirit’s attributes; is the critical part of being able to “discern the spirits” accurately. Without understanding the Holy Spirits attributes correctly – as given to us within scriptures, we have handicapped our discernment.
Jesus said: The greatest of all the Commandments is to love God first, then others as yourself. This is the first step in discerning the Holy Spirit from false teachings about the Holy Spirit. This first commandment covers a multitude of other commandments, to include the proper discernment when dealing with others.
I struggle to make this point in my video, we must have a balanced understanding of who the Lord is, and how the Holy Spirit functions. If we are ignorant of this proper relationship between men and God, we are at a much greater risk of being deceived by a “silver tongued Devil” which deceives many!
Below I have pasted some verses in helping others understanding with the identifying attributes of the Holy Spirit.
Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker asks if Jesus could come in 2020, while he gives clues from the Bible itself as to when the rapture might be.
Although I am versed in the 70 AD scripture concerning the “666” Antichrist, which undoubtedly occurred: I don’t believe this negates other texts in the scriptures, such as 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10 or Revelation 17: 1-18.
One of the reasons I believe this is that the term “Antichrist” as used in multiple scriptures shows that an Antichrist can be anyone who denies the power of the risen Lord. Whereas, The “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked”, “The son of Perdition”, “The Beast” could be speaking about more than (an) Antichrist (which we have plenty of even today) when this term was originally coined by John, in – 1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
So yes “Antichrist” was already in the world at the sacking of Rome and the Temple. Yet it is still plausible that: The one who is filled with the “spirit of anti-Christ” is no different than say the Pope of Rome, or any other Minister who would detract from the Lord Jesus Christ – as the only mediator between God and Man. This alone signifies (an) Antichrist; yet I tend to believe that: The “Man of Sin”, “That Wicked”, “The son of Perdition”, “The Beast” are titles to an entirely more powerful being: namely Satan himself!
If this be the case (and I don’t know if it is) we would be likely to see Satan appear as a world leader prior to the return of Christ. Could it possibly be that the term ant-Christ is being confused with the identity of Satan himself? I think it plausible!
Matthew 24:7 – Nation in this text is translated ETHOS in the Greek and is where we get the term Ethnic (group) from.
So, the Biblical text would read – For “Ethos” shall rise against “Ethos” and Kingdom against Kingdom and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
I learned this in Bible school in the 80’s, however although this is a correct interpretation of scripture; I have now discovered a “broadening of the word” which although correct, sort of loses its impact when used in this verse to a more pluralistic meaning, rather then simply speaking about ethnic groups:
So what I see happening here is very interesting; if I use the term “Ethos” like written in Matthew 24:7 (in its current usage) it becomes hard to make the point that the Bible is speaking about ethnic uprisings, as it could be argued that I have simply produced a type of rhetoric or perhaps overlooked a greater truth!?
Additionally it is interesting that the “Spirit of the age” (we are now in) disallows any “intellectual proof” of understanding “the word” in such a verse… Are you tracking, or am I overthinking the contexts of this text?
2 Corinthians 4:4
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Also, we have verses like: 1 Cor. 2:12, Ephesians 2:2, James 4:4
To me, it is simply more proof of the “Spirit of the age”, which I see as strong delusions!
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
It seems to me that less and less “spiritual truth” is registering to upcoming generations, and I have to wonder if its our education systems or God orchestrated blindness?

The following verse is a foreshadowing of Christ to a “contrite people”…
Isaiah 63:7-9 (KJV) 7 I will mention the loving kindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses. 8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Savior. 9 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity, he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
