I wrote “What Lurks over the Horizon?” November 2008 just before the General Election. At that time, several “conservative” outlets were routinely publishing my commentaries, but none of them wanted to publish this piece. Go figure. A few months later I started my own blog, The Millstone Diaries. It was my first blog post, and I posted it for posterity’ sake March 2009. Read it if you dare. Peace.

What Lurks over the Horizon?

America stands poised at the edge of a precipice; her next step could send her plummeting headlong to an untimely death. Yet, to even suggest such a possibility opens the door to charges of alarmism or hyperbolic fear-mongering. The chattering classes preach that a dictatorship can’t happen here; America will survive even with one-party rule and a radical socialist in the White House. The radio talk-show host, whose persistent pipes of “Let not your heart be troubled,” has done little to allay my fears for what is likely to happen to my country if the Democrats gain a super majority in Congress and Barack Obama wins the presidency.

It seems that conservative and libertarian pundits and commentators have not connected the dots to see the picture that I see, for they would be sounding the alarm and warning Americans of the radicalism that is about to bring down their nation. Then again, perhaps some have captured the image through their rose-colored glasses but are so attached to their celebrity status that they dare not point it out for fear of being ostracized and labeled a “kook” by their more “sensible” colleagues.

Call me a kook and detest me, but name-calling and rejection will not stop this watchman from warning our fence-sitting Americans of what lurks over the horizon. Facts are stubborn things; they are not opinions subject to debate, and for that reason, two plus two always equal four, not five, contrary to the slogans in Stalin’s Soviet Union or the announcements from the Party of Big Brother in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Orwell’s protagonist, Winston Smith, who works in the media and creates the Party’s deceptive propaganda, doesn’t know for sure if two plus two equal five, as the Party claims, “If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?”

Here we stand a divided country on the brink of entering a nightmare world, unprecedented in American politics, with an undecided electorate who are unsure for whom they will vote in this election. They see Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, six of one, half-dozen of the other, without a dime’s difference between them. Like Winston Smith, they don’t know if two plus two equal four or two and two make five.

Unlike Smith, our undecideds don’t live in an Orwellian society under a totalitarian government, at least not yet, so why don’t they know a radical socialist when they see one? Perhaps they can’t distinguish a radical socialist from a moderate conservative because they have absorbed so much conflicting information from the media making it impossible to sort out.

Conservative pundits and commentators have made a critical error in judgment by depicting Obama as the most liberal member of the Senate. Obama is anything but liberal; he is a radical socialist ideologue whose worldview and personality traits align him more with the revolutionary demagogues Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez than they do George McGovern and Jimmy Carter. This is why Castro writes in a column that Obama is “the most progressive candidate for the U.S. presidency.”

Add the word progressive to the word Democrat and you get activists demanding a socialist agenda; i.e., massive income redistribution from corporations and the wealthy to low income workers and the poor; massive reductions in military spending; an increase in social welfare spending; universal healthcare; living wage laws; the right of all workers to organize into labor unions and to engage in strikes and collective bargaining; the abolition of significant portions of the Patriot Act; the legalization of gay marriage; strict campaign finance reform laws; a complete pullout from the war in Iraq; a crackdown on free trade and corporate welfare; and the Freedom of Choice Act, which would cancel every state, federal, and local regulation on abortion, abolish all state restrictions on government funding for abortions, and if Obama is elected, use income taxes to fund abortions.

In other words, you get the issues and causes championed by both the House Progressive Caucus (HPC), which is now the single largest partisan caucus in the United States House of Representatives, and the country’s most radical socialist presidential candidate. HPC, a group made up of the most radical social democrats in Congress, is involved in symbiotic relationship with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which is the largest socialist organization in the United States.is the principal affiliate of the Socialist International, which claims to be the successor to Karl Marx’s “First International,” founded in London in 1864.

During his commencement address at Harvard, Alexander Solzhenitsyn said, “socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit and to a leveling of mankind into death.” Eric Hoffer correctly analyzed that socialist movements attract the misfits who are dissatisfied with themselves and their lives, who blame their own condition on outside forces, and think that a change in the world around them will suddenly transform their identities and magically cure their problems. The people caught up in socialist movements are searching for meaning in their lives; therefore, they often hate the present and passionately seek a perfect tomorrow.

Hoffer understood that America had a vigorous and healthy society because of the quality of its common people. Until recently, most Americans have been comfortable in their own skin and satisfied with their own lives, which explains why they have not been mesmerized by socialist movements such as Nazism, fascism, and communism. But now, far too many Americans are mesmerized by Obama’s words and image, not for what he’s accomplished, but for what they hope he will become.

Never before has a politician had such a captivating effect on so many Americans. Such a grandiose claim “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” by the charismatic leader of change about himself and the ruling clique of radical socialists in Congress is reason enough to give pause. Mark Levin says his greatest concern is whether the majority of voters will prove “susceptible to the appeal of a charismatic demagogue.”

It’s regrettable when any nation’s people surrender their hearts and minds over to a despot; but when the electorate of the freest people in the greatest nation on earth do it, “[t]his prospect frightens me much more than bombs.” What happened in Germany with Hitler, happened again in Cuba with Castro, and can happen here in the United States with Obama. It was the ordinary people who carried out the leader’s heinous crimes and murders believing in the glorious tomorrow promised them. “Of all tyrannies,” writes C.S. Lewis, “a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”

The Germans had enormous war debts and a terrible economy, so they believed the charismatic leader who personified hope and went on to elect the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazis) that promised change. The Cubans also supported a young, charismatic leader who promised change, and they openly embraced his idea without asking what kind of change or knowing the price they would have to pay. The upshot for our undecided electorate to ponder is that freedom is not free and “is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

Bolivian President Honors Pope with Hammer and Sickle Crucifix

By Jerry A. Kane

During a formal ceremony, leftist Bolivian president Evo Morales presented Pope Francis with a communist crucifix depicting Jesus nailed to a hammer and sickle.

The communist crucifix is a replica, originally designed by Jesuit activist Luis Espinal, who was assassinated in 1980 by suspected Bolivian paramilitaries during the months that preceded a military coup.

The night before, Francis stopped at an airport to pray at the site where Espinal’s body was found.

“Dear sisters and brothers. I stopped here to greet you and above all to remember. To remember a brother, our brother, a victim of interests who did not want him to fight for the freedom of Bolivia,” Francis said.

Following a brief examination of the wooden crucifix, Francis handed the gift to one of Morales’ aides.

Although spokesmen for the Bolivian government maintained that there was no political motive behind the gift, conservative Catholics claimed that Francis was being manipulated for ideological reasons.

Morales also presented Francis with a medal depicting the hammer and sickle in memory of Espinal’s death. Espinal was a Jesuit priest, journalist, and communist agitator.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast …” Revelation 13:11,12 (KJV)

For more on the story, see Vatican bewildered by Bolivia’s ‘communist crucifix’ gift to Pope Francis.

UPDATE

The video clip below shows Morales giving Francis several gifts in a formal ceremony. Before Morales gave Francis the communist hammer and sickle crucifix, he presented him with a pectoral cross with the same hammer and sickle image.

According to Francis, Espinal, the Marxist Jesuit who designed the communist crucifix from which the replica was taken, was a friend and brother who “preached the Gospel and this gospel bothered, and that’s why they eliminated him.”

What most Catholics and self-identified Christians don’t know is that the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has been deeply invested in progressive collectivism for generations. While abhorring atheistic dialectical materialism, the hierarchy has embraced certain elements of Marxist theory including social justice and economic redistribution of wealth and has sided with authoritarian collectivism over personal freedom and individual liberty.

“Papal encyclicals that touch upon socioeconomic issues routinely attack ‘capitalism’ and ‘individualism’ as inhumane and unjust forces, thus implying that less capitalism and individualism would make society more humane and just. See Paul VI’s Populorum Progressio (1967), for example, which rejects the right to private property and demands that ‘public authorities’ (i.e. governments) solve the social injustice of men holding “surplus goods” for their own private use while others lack necessities.”—Daren Jonescu

Catholic visionaries and commentators such as the late Father Malachi Martin and Kathleen Keating have predicted the rise of an Anti-Pope who would transform the Church’s fundamental teachings and lead the faithful to embrace the Antichrist.

Some prophetic scholars say the book of Revelation predicts the rise of a future Antichrist along with the False Prophet who will implement the religion of the Antichrist and cause the masses to worship him as God.

“Full in the face of the world,

And see the collapse of this pygmy giant

Whose fall will not stifle my ardour.

Then will I wander godlike and victorious

Through the ruins of the world

And, giving my words an active force,

I will feel equal to the Creator.”—Karl Marx

In August 2011, former child star Corey Feldman told ABC’s Nightline in an interview that Hollywood’s number-one problem and big secret “was and is and always will be pedophilia.”

“It’s something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it’s something that truly affects me,” Feldman told GQ magazine.

In April of this year, Michael Egan III alleged that he was one of several underage boys who were sexually abused in a Hollywood sex ring in the 1990s. According to the Los Angeles Times, Egan filed a federal lawsuit accusing movie director Bryan Singer “of drugging and raping him in 1999 when he was 17 years old.

Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children,” said Jeffrey Herman, Egan’s lawyer

Egan claims that Singer forcibly sodomized him, and that the openly homosexual director of the X-Men action films attended sex parties in Encino, California, at the estate of Marc Collins-Rector, a digital entertainment company executive who Egan claims lured him into the sex ring with promises of auditions for acting, modeling, and commercial jobs.

According to Egan, Collins-Rector was surrounded by a large network of homosexual pedophiles, and that he repeatedly threatened Egan saying that “We control Hollywood and we will eliminate you.”

In 2004 Collins-Rector was convicted of transporting five minors across state lines to engage in sexual activities. He pleaded guilty to eight charges of child enticement and is now a registered sex offender.

Compared with the numerous stories of sexual abuse allegations against Catholic priests, the broadcast and cable news networks have been virtually silent when it comes to reporting Egan’s claims of rampant child molestation in the entertainment industry. To their credit, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, and USA Today did publish brief reports on the filing, but the Washington Post ignored the lawsuit.

It looks like the major media have embraced the “what happens in Hollywood, stays in Hollywood” mentality when it involves the existing subculture of pedophilia in Hollywood. For homosexual directors and other adults in the entertainment industry, sexually exploiting and abusing underage boys is after all a counter-cultural virtue.

And what’s even more appalling is that Americans care more about seeing the latest X-Men film than they care whether or not the horrific criminal allegations against its director are true.

Karl Marx got it all wrong; it’s entertainment, not religion that is the opiate of the masses. Well, it is in the United States anyway.

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE:  “How” vs “Why”

By Bill Been

As an American who values our country second only to God and family, it is difficult to understand why the vast majority of the leaders and spokesmen for our country consistently voice a lack of understanding as to why Barack Obama either does or does not do certain actions that would be viewed as adding value or preserving America. Whether it be elected officials, political experts, talk-radio, or fair and balanced discussions, it seems that the typical responses when asked “Why?” are “I don’t know” or “It is incompetency” or “Obama is inexperienced” or “Obama is just a community organizer” or “inept” or “does not have the will” while ignoring the fact that Barack Obama told America exactly what he was going to do and he is closely following his stated direction.

The purpose of this document is not only to demonstrate that the answer to the “Why?” question is very straightforward, but to also demonstrate that the wrong question is being asked further masking the anti-American agenda of Barack Hussein Obama.

My book, Masters of Audacity and Deceit, clearly describes why Barack Obama is acting in a fashion that is opposing America and the fundamental principles upon which America was founded. At the time the book was written, the concerns that are reality today were presented as threats created or supported by the National Democrat Party that need to be understood and confronted by all citizens. These same threats provide the explanation for Barack Obama’s apparent “incompetence” and can be summarized in one statement as follows:

Barack Obama is simply carrying out his transformation objectives and direction that he promised five days prior to his election to the presidency in 2008 by following the ideology and teachings of Cloward & Piven, Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, and Jeremiah Wright as interpreted by a host of communists including his mother, Frank Marshall Davis, and the admitted small ’c’ communist Bill Ayers, and far left groups epitomized by the Institute For Policy Studies while drawing financial and ideological support from wealthy liberals led by George Soros and the Soros Democracy Alliance group, the anti-American Progressive groups, and Wall Street executives such as Lloyd Blankfein under the protective cover of a totally compromised Mainstream Media and the corrupted modern day Democrat Party that is populated by leaders who lie, cheat, distort, and politicize events for their self-serving objectives without regard for either America or the American people.

That Barack Obama has succeeded in reaching his objectives is evident from the following list of his “accomplishments” during his first six years:

  1. FAST & FURIOUS AND 2ND AMENDMENT
  2. NSA INTRUSION INTO PRIVACY AND FREEDOM
  3. IRS TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS
  4. BENGHAZI
  5. IRAQ-RAMADI, FALLUJAH, AND MOSUL IN CONTROL OF ISLAMIC TERRORISTS
  6. 36,000 ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS RELEASED INTO USA POPULATION
  7. BERGDAHL FOR 5 TALIBAN WAR PRISONERS
  8. MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SUPPORTED IN EGYPT
  9. SYRIAN RED LINE
  10. LIBYA IN CHAOS AS EXAMPLE OF “RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT”
  11. OBAMACARE-HERNDON ALLIANCE—“YOU CAN KEEP YOUR PLAN”—FAR LEFT, MOVE-ON, SOROS
  12. 90,000 IMMIGRANT CHILDREN AND PROPOSED $3.7 BILLION PLUS TO RESOLVE THE CRISIS
  13. BLATENT DISREGARD FOR ISRAEL AND CHRISTIANS IN FOREIGH COUNTRIES (CONVERT, TAX OR DIE)

One special accomplishment that is an active work in process of Obama and his administration is to establish that “America is not a Christian nation” while declaring that Islam was instrumental in the establishment of America. This fallacious and false representation of American history was clearly debunked in a recent Fourth of July sermon that spoke to the charters of the Original Thirteen Colonies and why these people had left their homelands for the freedoms available in the New World. These charters tell the real American story and the success in downplaying this Judeo-Christian heritage is the most repulsive and scandalous accomplishment of Barack Hussein Obama. These charters are presented with the hope being that some people will awaken and come to the rescue of America before Barack Obama and his anti-American allies complete their destruction of the greatest country on earth. Quotes from the charters follow:

Virginia – to help in “propagating of Christian religion…”

Plymouth – “…to advance the enlargement of the Christian religion to the glory of God Almighty.”

Delaware – one purpose is “…the further propagation of the Holy Gospel.”

Maryland – first settlers motivated by “…pious zeal for extending the Christian religion.”

Massachusetts – bring “the knowledge and obedience of the only true God and Savior of mankind.”

Rhode Island – “Commits its people to the true Christian faith and worship of God.”

Connecticut – “to help preserve the liberty and purity of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

New Hampshire – “…do in the name of Christ and in the sight of God…”

In addition, when the Declaration of Independence was written, the last words were “…under the protection of the Divine Providence.” This was followed some years later by George Washington, after his first inauguration, leading the members of the House and Senate to St. Paul’s Church in New York to seek guidance and to commit America to God.

In conclusion, the answer to the “Why?” question is very simply stated above if one understands the various transformation objectives that Barack Obama has clearly articulated throughout his lifetime. If this is understood, the need for the “Why?” question no longer exists, and the correct question can then be asked which is: “How do current events and crises fit into the Barack Obama transformation objectives and direction.?” Without this question being asked and answered, the American people will continue going to the next election never understanding why our great country is being diminished at home and abroad!!!!
