“These are the times that try men’s souls,” said Thomas Paine. Are they ever. But I would also like to quote the ancient Anglo-Saxon poet who described the Battle of Maldon:
“Will shall be sterner, spirit the keener, heart the bolder as our strength lessens.”
Many of us are shaken and demoralized by the confusion over this year’s presidential election, and horrified at the prospect of a Biden-Harris presidency. But all hope of a better outcome has not yet wholly vanished.
The important thing to remember is that our sins, our country’s sins, landed us in this wretched predicament in the first place.
What sins? Well, standing idly by while the wicked and ungodly debauched our whole society–with abortion, transgender, Drag Queen Story Hour, LGBT “rights,” corruption in the FBI, the election of one corrupt and reprobate politician after another, feckless foreign policy–need I go on? All of this together has weakened our nation and made us look like a land of libertines. The Hellfire Club has nothing on our own ruling class. And we’re the ones who elected them–or, through inaction, permitted their election.
We not only must repent, as a nation; we have an awful lot to repent, and it’ll take time to overcome the inertia of corruption and turn our ship around.
Now is not the time to throw in the towel. We are talking about the survival of our republic. Pray for repentance, pray for strength and courage, and keep on fighting. Conquer or be conquered.
We must remove our children from an education system that corrupts them and turns them against their country, their families, and their God. Most of this evil stuff was first brewed up in our over-funded universities, and then seeped out into our culture. What were we thinking–turning our children’s education over to Marxist teachers’ unions and crazed professors? Whole generations of our children. This chicken has come home to roost.
I pray the Lord to save our country: not for our sake, because our sins are many and they have found us out; but for His own great name’s sake, that the world might see what He does, and that the world might know that He is God. In Jesus’ name and by the power of Jesus’ name: Amen.
Public school teachers may never get around to teaching any history, math, or reading; but they do find time to “teach” children that “Communism has some really good ideas!” Once upon a time they’d chase you out of town for that.
Originally public education promised universal literacy and all the riches of several millenia’s worth of history, tradition, and lore–for everyone. Well, how did that turn out? Can you find a 10-year-old in public school who knows who David and Goliath were? Sheesh, my mother taught me all those things!

Public education never runs out of ways to outrage the public. This is the best one yet.
What kind of miserable excuse for a parent would ever agree to such a thing?
Why aren’t they out there in numbers demanding that every clod who played a part in this be fired?
Parents! You pay for this! You pay these morons’ salaries! Why do you put up with this?
They say it’s to ensure the pupils’ “privacy.” What bunk. It’s so they can poison the kiddies’ minds without interference from the parents. They don’t want you knowing what your children are being “taught.”
If we had the sense God gave a fire hydrant, we’d put an end to public schooling now.
America is great, said Alexis DeTocqueville in the early 19th century, because America is good. If she ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.
Bull’s eye for him.
Our esteemed colleague “Unknowable” has raised this issue lately in several comments. Just getting rid of the Democrat Party and slapping down the fake nooze media, he says, will not treat the root cause of our problems–an across-the-boards deterioration of our national character. This includes our penchant for “near-worship of celebrities.”
I think it’s important to recognize that our nation’s character has been debased on purpose by persons who are easily identifiable: the Democrat Party, the nooze and “entertainment” media (sort of a tautology), and teachers’ unions and other wicked “educators.” If we could somehow break them up and strip them of their power, they wouldn’t be able to carry on their mission to corrupt the country.
Things are done now that would have been utterly unthinkable when I was a boy. So why are they thinkable, and doable, now? Because certain people worked very hard, for a long time, to make them so. They never took “No” for an answer. No matter how many times they were defeated, they kept coming back–like the freakin’ Mummy. If one tactic didn’t work, they tried another. That’s how they finally got “gay marriage” intruded into our culture, through the Supreme Court. More specifically, through Justice Anthony Kennedy. They only had to swing one guy, and they got what they wanted. All other tactics had failed them. Even California voters turned it down. But they found the one judge who would give them what they wanted.
Yes, our national character needs re-Christianizing. We were a good country because we were a Christian country. D. James Kennedy once said that the most unserved mission field in the world was the churches in America. I’m afraid he was right.
Well, no one can say God didn’t give us enough work to keep us busy.
We’ve been laughing at Far Left Crazy for such priceless gems of idiocy as the Green New Deal, forcing superheroes to combat imaginary systemic racism, and Joe Biden–according to the nooze media, our future president–babbling like a drunken moron.
I don’t know about you, but it’s starting to scare me. I think we’d better take it seriously and figure out a way to defeat it.
It takes a long time to build a country up, but it can be torn down in a fraction of the time it took to build it. Before Hugo Chavez, Venezuela was the richest country in Latin America. Now it’s a basket case. Czarist Russia had a food surplus, and was a food-exporting nation. Stalin plunged it into famine. And then there’s North Korea.
The Democrat Party and its Far Left Crazy playmates mean to take over America and turn it into God knows what. They mean to tear down everything we have. As one of the Only Black Lives Matter honchos has admitted, “If we don’t get what we want, we’ll burn it down.” If they can, they will.
It’s not enough to laugh at these people. We are one spate of voter fraud away from being “fundamentally transformed” into Venezuela North.
It’s not enough to defeat them at the polls. They won’t go away; they’ll just keep on attacking us. This is our payoff for letting people who hate America run our schools, our media, many of our corporations, and our “entertainment” industry.
The enemy controls those institutions. Their hold must be broken. Their influence must be rooted out and permanently destroyed.
We are in more danger now than we were in the darkest days of World War II–because this enemy is already here, already dug in, and has assembled an army of mal-educated useful idiots who think they’re gonna get free stuff. They’re always surprised by what they wind up getting, but by then it’s much too late.
This must be stopped. Speak the truth, pray, and never, never, never give in. Never give in. Not if it takes seventy years to get their fangs out of our flesh.
Now they’re talking about sending the kids back to school, the Chinese Communist Death Virus scare coming to an end. But there’s a question that ought to be asked.
Should we? Do we really need them all to be in public schools?
Of course not. You’d have to be daft to think so.
I can’t think of anything I ever learned in school that my mother and father couldn’t have taught me at home. My father, with only a 1930s high school education himself, taught me arithmetic where the classroom professionals failed. All right, neither of my parents could have taught me chemistry; but I wasn’t able to learn it in school, either. Besides, back then it was the 1950s, homeschooling was virtually unheard-of, and whereas today we have an abundance of homeschooling resources at popular prices, back then… there was nothing.
At one point during my grade school career, school authorities had begun to think of me as a rather stupid little boy, slow on the uptake. This was because I couldn’t read what was written on the blackboard. I needed glasses! But I was only nine or ten years old and didn’t know I needed glasses. For all I knew, everything was supposed to look blurry.
Glasses acquired, end of problem. Not stupid, after all.
What has America’s education establishment done in the last 50 years, besides teach children to hate their country and disrespect their families? To say nothing of the overall Big Lesson of public schooling that has always been with us: Your age-group peers are the most important people in the world, and you win their approval by conforming to them.
And on top of all that, public school is boring! It is the gold standard for boredom. It is to boredom what Mozart was to music. Mind-numbing, stultifying boredom.
Are you absolutely, positively sure you want to send them back to that?
I pray that one of the results of the Chinese Communist Death Virus will be millions of new homeschooling families. Public “education” is run by Far Left crazies who teach your kids to be socialists and perverts. I know a lot of you don’t want to believe that, but it’s true.
Yuri Bezmenov defected from the Soviet KGB in the 1980s. In this 13-minute video, he warned us what the Soviets were trying to do to us. It happens in four stages.
First, “demoralization.” This would take 20 years or more. Use the schools and universities to “educate” young Americans to hate their country, sneer at their family’s religion, and abandon traditional morality for each new thing that comes down the pike–most of it bad.
Second “destabilization,” two to five years: destabilize the economy, foreign relations, and defense. Obama excelled at those things.
Third, “crisis.” In just six weeks or so, America’s communist enemies right here at home can brew up a nationwide crisis that makes people desperate and ready for a major change, which communism will provide. We seem to be at Stage Three today.
Four, “normalization”–a euphemism for permanent “change,” which would be Far Left Crazy change, a la Bernie Sanders. They can keep it in place by continually offering more free stuff, lying to the people, scaring them, getting them to snitch on each other–sort of a Mayor DeBlasio gig for the whole country. The lockdown, The Great Quarantine, with Democrat mayors and governors constantly moving the goalposts so we never get to the end of it, looks like batting practice in advance of the big game.
Funny–the Soviet Union is history, but their campaign against us continues apace, carried out by the fools and villains who were demoralized some 25 years ago.
And once America goes belly-up, Bezmenov warned, “There will be no place left to defect to.”
