My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 19 (‘When Will “Woke” Come Crashing Down?’)

Miami building collapse: What could have caused it? - BBC News

“Hey, Irv–didn’t this used to be the World Economic Forum?”

Throughout history, tyranny has generated threats that seemed unstoppable. Who in 1940 thought the Third Reich would fail? And remember U.S. Democrats in the 1970s trying to get favorable surrender terms from the Soviet Union?

But they weren’t unstoppable, were they?

And neither is “Woke.”

When Will ‘Woke’ Come Crashing Down?

They’re setting up the chairs in Davos, the private jets are flying in, as the globalist doomsayers get ready for their annual doomfest. They don’t think any power on this earth can hold them back.

That’s what they always think, before God takes them down.

‘The Great Reset’–Old Testament-Style

Ezekiel 28 Scripture Images - Ezekiel Chapter 28 KJV Bible Verse Pictures

The king of Tyre thought he was hot stuff. When Judah smashed by the Babylonians, the way was clear for Tyre to grow even more reach and powerful than it was already. But hear what God said to him, through the prophet Ezekiel:

Will thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.  –Ezekiel 28:9

In every age there’s a fool, or a nation of fools, or a whole international fraternity of fools aspiring to rule the world. True to God’s word, the Babylonians came and conquered Tyre, and killed the king. By and by, Alexander the Great totally destroyed it. (The Tyre on the map today is not on the site of the original. It is Tyre 2.0.)

Today we don’t have to get by with one measly king of Tyre. We’ve got politicians, political parties, Big Tech oligarchs, brain-deprived celebrities, academics and other “educational” parasites… all in bed together, all determined to control our lives–for our own good, of course!–and to see just how rich and fat they can get before they explode.

What will these say to the man who comes along and cuts them down? What will they say to the God that judges them?

Listen to their speeches; read their stupid manifestos. They are every bit as self-deluded as the king of Tyre. “Using technology wisely–” as if they knew how to do anything wisely!–“we can direct the course of human evolution,” blah-blah-blah. Ain’t no god, they say, but you’ve got as good as–us! We can be your gods!

I’m pretty sure this is how you get erased from history.

Archbishop Wants to ‘Unmask Globalists’

Who is Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano? | National Catholic Reporter

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, along with three cardinals, nine bishops, and a host of other supporters, has launched an “Appeal for the Church and the World” aimed at alerting the world’s nations to the threat posed by globalism (

The Red Pope isn’t gonna like it.

Quoting Archbishop Vigano: “The idea of plans for a New World Order under which countries and ordinary citizens see their identity taken away by a powerful elite might have seemed absurd until a few years ago.” The Appeal is to show “the serious danger to individual freedom caused during the spread of Covid-19…[by] powers which think there is no higher authority than themselves… [and] to break the media silence” from a media which is “censored and controlled.”

Bishop Muller: “The Church has allowed itself to be used as ‘Outreach’ by the New World Order.”

The Appeal was published on May 12, a few days ago. We have not yet seen any response to it from the Vatican.

Now, are we going to listen to these high-ranking officials of the Roman Catholic Church, or just write them off as cranks? Do we dare ignore them?

Yes, we should listen to them. Yes, there are rich and powerful individuals scheming to take away our freedom. There always are, and always have been: it is a dynamic of history.

Would-be world-conquerors–like Alexander the Great, or Genghis Khan–used to unleash great armies against their neighbors, to attain their goals by violence. World War II springs to mind.

But nowadays they’ve put their weapons on the shelf and try to take over the world with money, propaganda, so-called “science” (think Global Warming/Climate Change “you’re all gonna die unless you give us fantastic new powers–and all your money!”), political action, and in-the-bag media. They seek to win by lies and flattery what they’ve never been able to win by brute force.

Stand up for freedom, stand up for truth, and pray–because the earth is the Lord’s, and no cabal of sneaky socialists has any right to rule it.

May the Lord our God defend us from these predators.

‘C.S. Lewis and the Deplorable Word’ (2016)

See the source image

“If I can’t rule the world, then there won’t be a world!”

Having lived through two world wars, C.S. Lewis understood the temptations of nihilism and the rage of those who reached for absolute power but couldn’t grasp it. He wrote about it several times–in The Chronicles of Narnia and in That Hideous Strength are two examples that come to mind.

C.S. Lewis and The Deplorable Word

Go ahead–tell me we don’t have politicians and “leaders” today who’d just as soon destroy the world, if they’re not allowed to rule it.

But God won’t let them.
