We always hear it said over almost every controversial issue how we are all Americans when the debate begins. That is so untrue. Actually, it is borderline BS. Americanism is an ideology more so than a birthright. It could be argued that everyone born in the Western hemisphere is American: North America, Central America and South America. What separates us from other American countries is our Constitution, a gift granted to us by a Supreme Being. Mention of this Deity can be found in the Declaration of Independence and subsequently in the Preamble of each state constitution: WE THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF IOWA, grateful to the Supreme Being for the blessings hitherto enjoyed, and feeling our dependence on Him for a continuation of those blessings, do ordain and establish a free and independent government, by the name of the State of Iowa…

Another half-truth is that we are all God’s children; perhaps all God’s creation but not all God’s children. Jesus said to the Pharisees, the church leaders and religious folks in his day, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44, KJV); also said, “For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother” (Mark 3:35). John Adams, our second president from Massachusetts, wrote in a letter to the Massachusetts militia in 1798 that “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people, it is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”.

What have we learned here? We learn that we are NOT all children of God nor are we all one big happy family! And we learned that our Constitution was NOT made for reprobates and atheists. It was NOT made for communists and those with an antichrist ideology. It was NOT made to protect made-up extended gender identity rights, abortion rights, or same-sex marriage. These “rights” simply do not exist! The family of Satan and his children do not have the right to indoctrinate children in the public library or school system with pornography or anti-American critical race theory. These angel of light ministers, education hucksters and other “officials” need to be exposed and expelled – and the children of God have every right to stand up and say so without impunity. What I am saying is protected by the First Amendment as free speech, but what all the children of darkness are spewing from their filthy sewers, is not. That is incendiary hate speech. The Constitution does not protect nonexistent rights against what is moral and just. Things such as gender identity and sexual orientation are NOT rights; they are choices, choices that are divisive and destructive to our state, and no moral citizen is obliged to accept immoral choices under the color of law.

The greatest legalist criminal mind in the universe is the king of Babylon himself: “Did God really say?” The only Supreme Lawgiver is the King of Heaven: “It is written.” The score in a George Barna poll is only 4 percent of Americans have a biblical worldview and only 13 percent of born-again believers have a biblical worldview. It will not be hard to make a direct hit on antinomian ministers representing Satan and his snake oil salesmen supporting the cause of reprobates and communists in making these allegations. But what do I care? The Democrat Party of Iowa is really a communist party, and the GOP is a spineless compromising party that should trade its elephant mascot in for the cowardly lion from The Wizard of Oz. The Democrats are fine with keeping their jackass. It’s a good fit.

Life in the womb should have bipartisan support, but no! We have an unclean spirit of Molech crying for more child sacrifices through Dr. Mengele’s Democrat Party and compromising Neville Chamberlain’s GOP! Removing the scourge of indoctrination and transgenderism from schools should have bipartisan support, but no! Instead we have the unclean spirit of Ba’al arguing for more child sacrifice through the Democratic party of Madalyn Murray O’Hair and the compromising go-along-to-get-along country club party when transgenderism should be completely eradicated from grades K-12. On February 28 there were eight brave souls in the Iowa House, including Rep. Brad Sherman, who sponsored the marriage amendment for Iowa marriage to be defined as one male and one female. We can expect the minority party to resist heaven’s law, but where were the other 56 “God-fearing” House Republicans? Where were the 34 GOP senators? That’s 92 percent no help from the GOP including House Speaker Pat Grassley. Just let the protesting mob of reprobates gather in the Capitol Rotunda and verbally threaten and attack the brave eight souls who had the intestinal fortitude to take a stand. But that’s free speech! So pathetic but it fits the George Barna poll.

Now we are preparing for our circle-jerk Caucus to pick our next political messiah and make another GOP platform that we never keep. That’s all fine and dandy, but if we ignore sin and crime and compromise, guess what? This state will circle the drain like a bunch of turds waiting for that giant sucking sound to swallow us up. Who has the courage to face the giants? A clue: It’s not our government. It’s We the People!

At the core of our entire Christian walk is government – not the government of a state but the issue of whom we will allow to govern us spiritually. We are not allowed to determine what is right or what is wrong. Yeshua or Jesus of Nazareth has already done this: “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Our decision, by agency of free will, is whether or not we will obey God’s law. What we decide demonstrates what we hold in the highest regard, that is, who or what we worship. If we break God’s laws or deny their importance in our lives, we are in effect choosing the king of Babylon over the Lawgiver. We then determine what is right or what is wrong – and that is not our place. Who will we choose to set free in our collective Iowa heart, Jesus or Barrabas? That is the real election going on. Who will we protect, the innocent children or our adult sin? Our choice in that election will determine if we get a communist reprobate criminal like Babylon “Ba’al” Biden and Kamala “Ishtar the goddess” Harris or someone who fears God and keeps the commandments. “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If Yehovah be God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word” (1 Kings 18:21).

  1. Well said, and if ‘we the people don’t wake up and take action to save our country, then there is no hope. And yes, democrats are the enemy and we have had republicans side with them. Those republicans need to be voted out.
