The Progressive Left – seeking absolute power by any means

by Hadley Robinson

“The Democrats are on a Kamikaze mission.” – Larry Kudlow, author
Already today we see traditional values being blurred in many countries and that this leads to the degradation of the institution of the family, to mutual alienation in society and the depersonalization of people. – Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, in a recent public address

Mr. Ludlow and Mr. Putin are speaking of the same worldview/religion:  The Progressive Left (PL), like religion in general, has its blind faith, creeds and, especially, techniques on how to deal with its perceived enemies, including slander and murder.  As the Russians experienced, the PL is not self-sustaining because what it spreads to the culture at large, it eventually experiences itself.

The Progressive Left, led by the U.S. Democrat Party with the aid of the Republican Party, are experts in destabilizing and undermining cultures in their quest for absolute power.  It is all done with nice-sounding words which, in fact, are the opposite of what they mean and are really doing.

One of the ways to destabilize a culture is to allow immigration without ensuring that the immigrants learn the language and customs of the nation into which they are entering.  We have upwards of 25 million people here from Mexico who have not done this.  Most have no intention of abandoning the corrupt and kleptocratic culture they left.  Should there be any surprise there are problems?

Most do not know (or forgot) that prior to the 70’s, there was not the incentive for illegal immigration from south of the border. That is, until the Supreme Court ruled that all government entities in the U.S. could not withhold services from illegal immigrants that are available to U.S. citizens.  So, people from other countries now had a huge incentive to come here illegally and receive free benefits including: housing, education, health care, food, cell phones – everything.  For some years, I watched illegal immigrants running across the freeways, the crowding of our hospital emergency rooms by illegals, especially by pregnant women who took advantage of gaping holes in the law and in our Constitution in order to have an “anchor baby” – all at public expense.  My city went from being an average American city to being a suburb of Mexico in less than 30 years.

Only people who have lived on the border (as I did and still do) could see the results of a Federal Court system in the hands of the Progressive Left, a descendant of the French Enlightenment that brought, among other things, the Reign of Terror 1793-1794.

Below, the execution by guillotine of “enemies of the people” including a Christian priest.  The French Enlightenment provided the intellectual cover for this time of mass murder and the brutal de-Christianization of France.  The PL operates not with justice for persons but for groups.  If you were a member of a hated group but had done nothing, you were guilty, just the same.

Mass murder by French Revolutions

The PL knows that their agenda would have taken decades (if ever) to make it past the legislatures of the States, including the Congress.  The taking over of the American law schools was a slow process but it was the key to overturning the Constitution, bypassing due process, and maintaining the separation of powers. So-called conservative Presidents (e.g. Ronald Reagan) helped the process by appointing scoundrels to the High Court who are still tearing down our country, brick by brick.  Decades ago, concerned citizens attempted to impeach Chief Justice Earl Warren but could not overcome the already PL dominated media.

Any law the PL did not like had to have 5 Justices who – for any reason – agreed to declare the law “unconstitutional”.  This technique was also used to nullify and warp Amendments , like the X Amendment. Anyone remember the Federal Courts requiring the forced busing of young school children around cities to “correct” inequalities? The Supreme Court backtracked as they foresaw revolt by ordinary citizens if they continued with this monstrous overreach of judicial power. “Just wait a few more years/decades, then spring the trap….”  The Court monitors the political climate carefully and, when the majority considers the time ripe, will send another bomb into our midst. With the full cooperation of the PL dominated American news and media organizations, it became even easier.  Is this republican government or tyranny?

At its heart, the PL’s disregard (and hatred) for the core principles of the Constitution and the Christian religion continues to sweep away – without public ratification – the foundations of orderly and peaceful civilization.  Their absolutism in all human activity demands the extermination of such notions as:

There are others but these come to mind. It has been a bloodless revolution thus far but a revolution, nonetheless.

According to the PL, everyone, everywhere is 100% equal and the same – the antithesis of the meaning of “citizen”.  However, these hypocrites exclude themselves from such lofty notions, as did the Soviet leaders of the Stalinist era.  They were the ones who were “poor” but had all of the privileges of the richest elites in the world. You could eat the finest food, live in the finest homes, travel to the finest resorts, enjoy the best prostitutes, and not have $1 on paper or in your purse. (Does this sound like the U.S. Congress?)

Feminist hypocrites have not said a word about the Selective Service Act.  It is convenient for them to require young men to be potential cannon fodder in the event of war but exclude themselves from this dreadful duty. They want complete equality – mostly.

What has any of this to do with the Wall that Mr. Trump is proposing?  It is an expensive attempt to make an end-run around the PL’s usurpation of our Court system (that should have never have been necessary in the first place).  Not all U.S. citizens lack sense.  Many have watched the sellout of the Constitution by both American parties and the election of Mr. Trump (the Outsider) was a response – anything but more of the same.

There will not be any peaceful resolution of the ongoing Constitutional crisis that has been tearing down the foundations that have supported the astounding success of the U.S. among the nations of the world.  Those special features of the U.S. are not available anywhere else and have specifically resulted from the adoption of the Judeo-Christian ethic long ago by a large number of the ruling elite of the U.S. Even heathen nations that submit to the Divine Law will prosper, as the Scriptures teach.

The PL will not give up its ongoing destruction of the heart of U.S. civilization without a terrible fight, as we are currently witnessing.  They worked hard for over a century to lie and deceive their way into the leadership of most public and private institutions, including the churches.  Seventy years of Soviet/Stalinist rule accomplished nothing and nearly destroyed Russia. For the PL, they just needed more time and another 60 million murders.  They are envious of the mass murder done by one of the heroes Joseph Stalin.

Most American citizens who make the country function day to day at the bottom may not be able to enumerate the details that I have made here.  However, they sense that there is a serious problem, especially with the alarming increase in government at all levels and the formation of a police state.  (Has anyone noticed the increasing number of jack-booted, SWAT geared police on street corners? The excessive use of force on ordinary citizens?)

Government is being politicized at every level and used not so much as to assist the Citizen but to watch and control him.  Of course, if one is a PL sympathizer he may wonder what the fuss is all about?  He will not likely have to live in the “camps” created under Obamacare or endure the terror of a national constabulary created under that act. The crisis is similar to HIV – it takes a long time to weaken the man and is always fatal.

People of sense know what happens to cultures that embrace moral anarchy, among other things. The current Federal government looks more and more like that of the French Revolution. The 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution prompted some recent remarks by those who lived through its ensuing terror.

"There is an expulsion of God from human life, ignoring the Divine moral law. And especially devastating is the fact that ignoring the Divine moral law is clothed in the form of state law. This is a very dangerous trend. If people force the state law to try to commit a sin or to associate themselves with sin, then we will enter into some kind of apocalyptic reality," - Metropolitan Hilarion, Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church
“Our [Russia] was soaked red with the innocent blood of the first martyrs in modern history. Soon iniquity and arbitrariness in relation to the Church became commonplace. In these persecutions and sufferings for Christ a great multitude of the faithful children of the Church made manifest the greatest heroic deed of faith and courage, accepted death and the ‘crown of glory that fadeth not away’ (1 Pt 5.4). It was a time of dreadful tribulation for all of the peoples of our Fatherland. As a result, the country stood on the brink of destruction.” – General message of the Russian Orthodox Church warning her members of the dangers of Socialism and Communism, December 2, 2017. Here is the entire message.

These early 20th century American fools and the already leftist American media swallowed the lies put out by the Bolsheviks.  Steinbeck’s’ Grapes of Wrath, a PL fantasy of how to solve society’s problems, won him the Nobel Prize. "Blame others for everything but not your own lust, greed, sloth, and ambition" is their creed. The poor Russians jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

American cheering the Soviet of Union of Joseph Stalin

Do we have to wait until the Democrats and their Republican collaborators use the bottomless power of the State to imprison or murder those who oppose them? Has anyone listened to the language of these people recently? How does one counter, as the Russians who opposed Lenin and Stalin unsuccessfully did, an atmosphere of lies and deceit? When our Constitution is largely swept away, what then? In another place I asked,

When will our Armed Forces do their sworn duty and defend our Constitution from her domestic enemies?

If the oath of the soldier has any meaning or relevance, what about to this crisis? As the late Russian writer and poet, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, remarked in his 1978 Harvard address, will the defenders of our homeland have courage?

A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today. The Western world has lost its civic courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, in each government, in each political party, and, of course, in the United Nations. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling and intellectual elites, causing an impression of a loss of courage by the entire society. There are many courageous individuals, but they have no determining influence on public life.

The last of his remarks are a tragedy -- and this was 1978.  If you are a small and courageous Christian baker in Colorado, you are severely punished if you ignore the moral anarchists and go privately about your business.  The baker was not trying to reverse homosexual rights, he just did not want to be forced to support them.  What’s next?  Where does it stop?  At this point, American culture is an insult to human dignity and propriety, to say nothing of the Creator.

It is a clash of civilizations – one more enduring, one of the devil. Things continue to unravel.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. -- Jesus (John 8:44)

What is on your mind at this point?  Is it similar to what Hezekiah thought when he learned that Israel would be swept away in a holocaust at a later time?

Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, "Hear the word of the LORD: The time will surely come when everything in your palace, and all that your fathers have stored up until this day, will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left, says the LORD.  And some of your descendants, your own flesh and blood, that will be born to you, will be taken away, and they will become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon."  "The word of the LORD you have spoken is good," Hezekiah replied. For he thought, "Will there not be peace and security in my lifetime?" 2 Kings 20:16-19

Do you have any children?  Grandchildren?  What are you doing to stop this overthrow of our government, our Constitution, and our unique way of life?  "Nothing will be left...."   I was there in the early 70's when the late Francis Schaeffer addressed pastors and seminarians in Chicago accusing evangelicals of preaching a gospel of personal peace and affluence.

Matthew Henry remarked that, "...those acquainted with the word of God, will clearly perceive it is filled with woe to impenitent sinners, and that all the precious promises of the gospel are for the repenting, believing servants of the Lord."

The Progressive Left is no less vicious than the Pharisees, Pol Pot, or Joseph Stalin.  They are the children of the Devil and serve him.  Victory over such a formidable adversary is not possible without the might of the Holy Spirit and God's servant creatures, the angels.  Like Jesus and many others, we can at least denounce these powers from Hell and hope our Lord Jesus will defend us.
