Scarlet – Scarlet Is Our Color


Scarlet Is Our Color


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ May 12, 2008


Time is fleeting and every second, minute, hour and day hurtles this nation closer to a time of retribution, a time so horrific that the mind cannot comprehend the magnitude of the fiery fury that will descend upon this nation and the people in it. The Eternal is moving against this country with purpose and terrible resolve, like small fingers of flame the preliminary pestilences signal a rapidly advancing holocaust.

The worst of heathen have come to possess the offices of our government, the halls of our institutions and the minds of our people. The land is in the terminal stages of a great spiritual disease. We are an adulterous people and a scarlet A has been emblazoned upon our land.

With regularity one hears it parroted that God’s blessings are upon this nation, those who give lip service only to the God of all creation continually wring their hands in despair over the removal of God from our coins, prayer from our schools and the Ten Commandments from our public institutions. One can only wonder where these same people were when sexual perversity and the teaching of social filthiness invaded our schools. Where were they when derelict and avaricious politicians and government agents incrementally and systematically dismantled the Constitution and destroyed the individual liberties of the people? Under what rock were they hiding when the killing of live babies was sanctioned and a host of soul killing perversions were institutionalized?

Why would a supposed God-fearing people allow such to come to pass? The truth is that the more than one-half of the people of this country who call themselves Christian, a great majority of which are ashamed to utter the name of Jesus Christ in public, have done more spiritual damage than the totality of the non-religious, the atheists and the agnostics who reside in the country.

God’s blessings were withdrawn from this nation years ago, if that were not the case why is it that our vaunted power came to naught in wars with such small peanuts on the international scene as North Korea and North Viet Nam, two tiny two bit nations with little in the way of sophisticated weaponry at the time of their conflict with the United States. Some will bristle and bridle at this and many will alibi the defeats with any number of excuses none of which will explain away the fact that they won and we lost.

That God has broken our pride in our power is not the worst of it, we are seeing increasingly the punishments for our national sins and our refusal to keep faith with the Eternal God our creator and our master. Perversions lie upon this land like a filthy blanket. The land stinks of the rottenness of the lusts that prevail. We now find ways to make iniquitous pursuits seem righteous. With the passing of statutes and a stroke of a pen, Walla! We have made despicable sins acceptable or at least we think that we have. We may fool the fools that pander after the lusts of the flesh that Satan has put into their hearts, but we have not fooled the all-knowing omnipotent God. Those who think that they have are in for a very rude awakening indeed.

We have delivered our children into an ignorance of their origin by prostelyzing for Satan and promoting his religion of evolution. Some like to call it evolutionary science, but I do not because it is not a science, it is an ignorant supposition or theory and those who embrace it denigrate the Holy God and call Him a liar. Many, who call themselves Christian, are ignobly timid and faint-hearted in the face of the blustering of those who believe that they have an absolute right to force their nescient theories upon an entire nation of people. So these pusillanimous weak-kneed Christians genuflect to Satan’s agents in an attempt to placate them by urging an alternative evolution theory the substance of which is that God used evolution to create mankind. Its fine if they want to believe that, but if they do they ought not to call themselves Christians. God’s word specifically states that the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. There is no equivocation here and there is certainly no compromise with the devil and his demons who know quite well that man is not a product of a successive morphing of primitive species.

The dam has been breached in regard to the rapid delivery of the nation unto ever escalating catastrophes, manmade and natural, a trickle of such has turned into a deluge.

The dollar has all but collapsed; the economy is on its deathbed and kept barely alive by snake oil remedies that only prolong its inevitable demise. Corporations and industry moguls have discerned the depth of the sickness that they have contributed to and like rats off a sinking ship they are abandoning the country of the birth of their enterprises and moving their wealth and their assets to foreign lands. Crime flourishes; serial killers and others of criminally debased minds stalk the land. The cities are immoral cesspits and simmering racial tensions fed by illegal immigration and shattered family units portend rapidly approaching riots of an astronomical and deadly potential.

It used to be that natural calamities were relatively rare occurrences, we now see deadly and super destructive natural phenomena strike almost daily somewhere in the United States and the areas of destruction are more widely spread. Devastating widespread flooding, thousands of violent tornadoes, hurricanes of magnum strength and completely unseasonable weather patterns are rapidly becoming the norm rather than the exception. The 10 most deadly natural disasters ever in the United States have all happened within the past 10 years.

The secularists who make up the majority of the scientific community and the national media would have us believe that all this havoc is caused by men and the changes they have wrought in regard to atmospheric conditions. They cannot be expected to know the real source of these anomalies since they have no spiritual base whatever, even if they would open a Bible they would be completely mystified by the contents. They prattle on thinking that they are wise. They do not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for it is foolishness to them; and they cannot understand these things because they are spiritually discerned. Those who are enlightened and who do dissent in regard to the global warming myth are bullied and threatened into silence, just as those who question evolution are stifled by threats of loss of tenure, censure and loss of jobs. The agents of deception who serve the dark spirits cannot allow the light of truth to be shined upon the lies that they spin, and since they have not the truth to rely on they resort to smearing those who will not assent to their prevarications. A smirk, a sneer, a curled lip of disdain and churlish commentary are the tools of their trade and a gullible public is their ally in the transforming of their outright lies into fictitious truths.

The unrighteousness of our people, the moral degradation upon the nation, the rebellion against Almighty God and the rejection of His rule have brought us to the cusp of absolute destruction. Repent is not in our vocabulary and humility does not inhabit our soul, foolishness is forever on our lips and pride and arrogance mark our character.

The ignorance of our leaders and the delusion upon the people has made way for the institution of the elements of our own destruction. Our cities are teeming with forty million illegal foreign nationals with no allegiance to, or regard for, our safety or our domestic tranquility. They see the American people as intruders and interlopers on lands that they covet as their own. We allow unfettered access to many thousands of Islamic militants each year and have allowed them to establish hundreds of Mosques throughout the country, which serve as sovereign citadels for subversion and truculence. In deference to political correctness we have undermined our social underpinnings and delivered up our schools and other institutions to moral bankruptcy. Only a nation that has been cut-off by Almighty God could have been handed over to such great vulnerability.

We have foolishly expended our resources and frittered away our assets. Auguries of a coming food shortage are upon us. We are diverting our crops to the making of fuel and food reserves are at a thirty-year low. Food inflation has become more serious than the rising cost of fuel. Given the unnatural weather patterns that are upon us it is inevitable that we will in the very near future experience massive crop failures through drought and other weather related developments. Famine will bring us to riots of unthinkable dimensions. The cities will erupt with the fires of such and the toll in death and destruction will be fearsome. But, the end is not yet.

The cataclysmic events described heretofore will weaken the nation and render us completely vulnerable to attacks by belligerent nations. At the present time the fuse has been lit in the middle east that will ignite most definitely a third world war. But, it will not be the Islamic nations that will put an end to us. It will be the nations, our former enemies of Europe, who have risen like a Phoenix from the ashes of their defeat and been reborn in their nazi fascist image that will make an end of us.

Many have written to me and bewailed what they see as a failure by me and other columnists with NewsWithViews.com to provide solutions to the problems that we describe. They concede that we have accurately identified the degradation that it upon our nation, but they want someone to provide the answers that will deliver the nation from a seemingly imminent demise. The truth is that there are no secular solutions that will deliver this nation. No resolution other than a nationwide confession of sin and repentance thereof will save this nation.

In one of my articles I quoted the following scripture and noted that some took umbrage over my application of this scripture to the United States. Protestations to prophetic scripture will not prevent the fulfillment thereof.

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.” Revelation 18:7-8

Our Enemies – Our Enemies Will Dance On Our Graves


Our Enemies Will Dance On Our Graves


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ December 5, 2007


Only the most deceived and blindly ignorant among us have failed to note the rapid confluence of events that are moving this nation toward a third world war, a war that approaches in part by virtue of a complete departure from morality by our deeply corrupted government; a seemingly inevitable war that transfixes this nation with bloody eyes. Believing that we are greatly and divinely blessed by the very God who has been made the object of national ridicule and scorn, a God who’s Son has been blasphemed, denigrated and denied, we wander blissfully through each succeeding day imagining, without a basis in reason or fact, that we will be preserved and delivered from the very same inhumane and terrifying events that we have inflicted upon the hapless civilian non-combatants of other nations. We have sown the seeds of hate and violence and we are soon to reap the harvest; we are staring into the murky depths of a demise delivered upon us by our failure to adhere to moral principles.

Our crusades are no longer righteous and our goals are no longer altruistic. A great degeneracy has settled upon the people and the institutions of our society. Whereas our national demeanor used to reflect benevolence and justice we are now indwelled by the deadly sin of insatiable greed. This has deadened our sense of discernment and submerged our conscience. We have been delivered up to delusion. Methodical reasoning has been replaced by a dogma, which closely parallels the most recent or prevalent intimations of the government and its mouthpiece the national media. Propagandists have blurred the lines between good and evil and beneficial and destructive. Our time is short and we don’t even know it, we are like a galloping beast that has been shot through the heart and is carried forward by momentum not even realizing that it is already dead.

Until recently the United States had the trust of the international community in regard to jointly responsible monetary policies, this faith is an absolutely essential ingredient for the stability of the world’s economic system. Since the currencies of the world are not backed by tangible assets the nations must be able to rely on the sureness of the fiscal integrity of those who are partners in what now amounts to a seamless worldwide economic community. To abrogate that trust by deceitful policy is to threaten the economic stability of the entire world.

One would think that since the United States is a debtor nation and heavily dependent upon foreign investors for the capital to shore up this hugely in debt nation and a drastically faltering dollar that our government and financial institutions would pay scrupulous attention to a steady and unfailing commitment to honorable international policies. Unfortunately this nation had demonstrated just the opposite demeanor. Though many will bridle at the contention that our goals are often dishonest and our honor purchasable there is much to substantiate this contention.

The constant manipulation of the domestic economy by tinkering with interest rates in order to stimulate or maintain an appearance of continual growth and prosperity has had dire consequences. When the economy is continually stimulated artificially with no eye to allowing for a balancing of the system through natural forces it is a fool’s game. It is analogous to, as a preventative measure, providing the body with a continual stream of antibiotics, the presence of which suppresses the development of natural antibodies. Sooner or later super microbes will develop against which the antibiotics have no effect and against which the body has no natural resistance. Disaster for the poor host to these super microbes is inevitable. And disaster for this nation appears also to be inevitable.

The housing bubble calamity and the fall out that accompanied it is a case in point. The collapse of the housing market was predestined by the idiotic policies of the Fed in regard to manipulating the economy by artificially lowering interest rates in order to prop up the stock market and to placate the politicians who seemingly have an urgent desire to continually assure their constituents that they will never allow less than an always-rosy economy.

The created frenzy among the greedy, grasping and gullible in regard to the pursuit of mortgages at unrealistically low interest rates, which enabled them to acquire hugely over priced houses with little or no commitment toward equity was bad enough, but the treachery of the lenders who encouraged this wildly irresponsible borrowing and then scammed, with the help of American investment rating agencies, foreign investors into purchasing these nearly worthless U.S. mortgage securities was nothing short of criminal. The domino affect of the collapse of the housing market bubble affected not only domestic financial institutions, but also the stability of many foreign banks and mortgage lenders. These were staggered by the U.S. housing slump that deflated the bubble; some were on the cusp of a complete meltdown and had to be pulled from disaster by quick government intervention. And we wonder why the international community hates us, with friends such as the United States who needs enemies.

Throughout our history we have been a nation that has presumed to act as the moral conscience of the nations of the world, a champion for international justice and morality. We viewed it as our destiny to promote peace, to subdue injustice and discipline belligerent nations. We set up tribunals to punish those that we believed to be responsible for inhumane acts against the weak and the helpless. We condemned and executed political and military leaders of Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan who we felt were responsible for heinous international acts. When one assumes this posture one had better have clean hands. Don’t look now, but ours are dirty – extremely dirty.

That the United States has become an aggressor nation cannot be disputed. We claim a right to anticipatory or preemptive military strikes to enforce our will upon nations that are subjectively labeled as rogue. The simple fact is that we deny the same right of self-direction to governments with policies that diverge from ours that we claim as a divine right. The Bush administration has carried subterfuge to new heights. Inventiveness in regard to fabricating justification for a military invasion has become an art form. The president while searching for ways to secure congressional approval for an attack on Iraq changed pretexts as often as he changed shirts, finally settling on weapons of mass destruction. Today almost five years after the inception of the attack on Iraq no signs of weapons of mass destruction have ever been found and the president has had to alter his propagation for a seemingly interminable conflict as a war for democratization. Where is it written in our laws or our Constitution that we have the authority to bomb a country and kill innocent non-combatants in order to convert them to democracy?

This country is spiritually wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked. We have reached the ultimate low in social degeneration. Our politicians and public officials are treacherous and devious. They are continually deceitful; lies fall easily from their lips. Our courts impose and uphold the aberrant and the indecent, while contravening that which is good and righteous. We have renounced any faith in the Sovereign God and we deny His Son. Perversion lies across this land like a filthy blanket. Money is our God; there is no repentance in our soul, and our fall from grace has destined our future.

Even now the thunders can be heard in the distance and the winds of judgment swirl about us. When the thunders rain destruction upon us, and the hot winds scorch us it will be too late. No amount of pleading, begging, wailing or crying will deliver us from that of our own making.

Republican Party – Killed By The Republican Party


Killed By The Republican Party


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ November 7, 2007


The United States is on a final decent into the historical resting place of deceased nations, gripped in the death throes of spasmodic convulsions, the end appears inevitable and imminent. No longer an amalgamated nation with a national purpose, the pitiful remains of a once sturdy Republic is now no more than a mongrelized, drastically faltering, and soon to become extinct near third world country. Completely overrun with a glut of the illiterate castoffs of intelligently retarded backward countries and in the grip of the egregiously despicable internal despisers of our nation we are spiraling down through the excruciatingly painful stages of a terminal disease.

This nation is soon to go to its grave in the most ignoble collapse since the Roman Empire breathed its last, and the unwitting instrument of its death is – the Republican Party.

Whoa, you say! Is not the Democrat Party the party of moral weakness, corruption and social perversion? Was it not the Democrats who celebrated and endorsed communist ideology and initiated the now prevalent internal loathing of the foundations and wonderments of this Republic, a transcendent nation among nations? This would, on the surface, seem to be a logical argument, but for the Democrats to have achieved such monumental success in bastardizing and corrupting this nation it was necessary that they have the aid and support of an enabler, and that enabler was, and is, the Republican Party.

It is entirely too easy to look at Democrats as the vermin who doomed this country to its seemingly inevitable fall from supremacy in the world and as having been the cause of the presaging signs that it is about to become entirely extinct as a bastion of freedom and liberty. This nation is like a wounded animal put down by venomous forces and struggling to regain its feet and stave off death; it will ultimately undergo one of two possible fates, it will either be rescued by revolutionary forces or it will be administered a coup de grace by the pernicious forces that have current control of the nation.

Soon, very soon, the Republican Party will come to a similar fate if we see no political change of course. The party is a dog that has grabbed its tail in its teeth and is about to swallow itself. An amazing and seemingly impossible feat, but the Republicans have amply demonstrated that nothing is beyond the realm of possibility when it come to their ability to self destruct.

Think about it, which party had been most loyal to it base? It not too hard to answer that question, the reckless and irresponsible socialist liberal base of the Democrat Party in fact has been well served by the party. They have achieved nearly every inimical social perversion that they have pursued. The killing of innocent unborn babies has reached record heights. The lives of twenty-four percent of all unborn babies are delivered into the hands of medical serial murderers. A baby is murdered every twelve seconds, and it is estimated that in this country there have been eighty-seven million living beating hearts stilled by the bloody hands of the legal abortionists. Those idiot politicians who have encouraged the unlawful entry of thirty to forty million illegal aliens as a remedy to a falsified shortage of workers fairy tale, need to take a long sobering look at these statistics, if they weren’t so engaged in infanticide, they might be able to see that when they enable the murder of 3,600 unborn infants per day they will most certainly create a vacuum in the labor market.

The radical feminist movement has made remarkable progress under the sponsorship of the Democrat Party, and the social manipulators who seek and receive authorization for state intervention into the affairs of families and control over the same have made stunning gains. These haters of the traditional patriarchal family structure have literally destroyed the family unit, so goes the family so goes the nation. An impressive record for which the Democrats can thank the Republicans.

Why is it that Republicans conduct themselves as political neophytes when they have control of the presidency and the congress? Traditionally they have totally ignored the spoils system and refuse to claim the fruits of their victories. They kiss the toes of their political enemies of the Democrat Party and fawn all over them, often times to the point of embarrassment, in an effort to ingratiate themselves with those who literally despise their political guts. Are they not supposed to be the opposition party, rather than a lickspittle clone? The sad truth is that we are in the clutch of a one party socialist system.

It is a fact that the Reagan administration restored some semblance of unity and cohesion within the Republican Party and a sense of opposition, but it is also a fact that during his tenure and under his banner the legalization – by amnesty – of 2.7 million alien lawbreakers was accomplished. His signing of a bill to legalize these law beakers and provide them a commitment free path to citizenship immediately opened the floodgates to untold millions more of these semi-literate and illiterate illegals. From the way that they are fawned over by our politicians and extended benefits well exceeding those afforded legal U.S. citizens one would think that the nation had inherited thirty to forty million rocket scientists and brain surgeons rather that a rag tag disease ridden clog of bedbug laden barefoot beggars.

The Republicans have handed the Democrats the biggest political endowment in history, thirty-seven million illiterate aliens who can be trained like chimpanzees to pull the lever for Democrats. They may be illiterate but they understand quite clearly that it is Democrats who are willing to bankrupt the nation to provide them with the necessities of life, such as food, schooling, lodging and medical care. The failure of the Republican Party to come to grips with this execrable condition has sounded a virtual death knell for the party. And because of their complaisance we, as a nation, are about to suffer the same fate as the Roman Empire, which was overrun by barbaric tribes in rat skin caps; we will soon cease to exist as a nation of sovereign people.

There will be those who write and complain that I have laid the putrid state of the nation solely at the feet of the Republicans, and that by doing so I have been too hard on the darlings. Someone should be hard on them they have frittered away every opportunity to coral the unconstitutional excesses of the Democrats and move this country back to constitutional governance. They have completely alienated the conservative base of the party and taken to their bosom socialistic causes once thought to be the sole province of liberal Democrats. In short they have been nothing but toadies to the social and corporate elites of this country. I would like to see them get some guts and stand for the best interests of the people that they are supposed to represent.

No one president in our history has been as destructive to both the nation and the Republican Party as George W. Bush, that great poobah of the order of the skull and bones. The man is the worst president in the entire history of the nation. That he may have been exceeded in this regard by the election of that pompous windbag Al Gore or by counterfeit war hero John Kerry is totally irrelevant. Al Gore and John Kerry are Democrats they are supposed to be socialist reprobates. George Bush is an entirely different matter he claims to be a conservative Republican albeit a compassionate conservative, which is just another name for a liberal Democrat masquerading as a Republican.

In the last congressional election old George single handedly sabotaged the political aspirations of many Republican challengers and terminated the political careers of a considerable number of other Republicans in the congress. I won’t even dwell on his unconstitutional wars of naked aggression, his bent for one world governance, and his quest to make us a nation of uniformly brown people, I will just say that he has been an unmitigated disaster for both the nation and the Republican Party.

We see in the wings a bevy of candidates for the Republication presidential nomination. The cast of candidates includes a New York cross dresser, a George Bush clergy clone, an eastern liberal governor who since his candidacy has undergone a miraculous transformation to social conservatism, a worn out perpetual presidential campaigner, a couple of very decent conservative congressmen and a single shining star for Constitutional governance, Ron Paul.

Its now or never folks – this is our last chance to restore this nation to constitutional governance, remove the putrefying excesses of uncontrolled immigration, and restore social decency. There is only one candidate who can, and will, attack all of these issues, and that candidate is Ron Paul. His integrity runs deep and he is the only candidate who has no opportunistic political reverses in his record, he does not vote out of political expediency he stands always on principle. It has been a very long time since we have had a principled man in the White House. His age is absolutely no factor; I look back at Ronald Reagan and think of how we would have been deprived had we allowed his age to keep him from office. Ron Paul has absolutely amazed me with his perseverance and stamina. He stays on course like a guided missal, never wavering, never detouring and never compromising on principle. I could support or vote for no other.

Freedom – Stamping Out Freedom With Deadly Intent


Stamping Out Freedom With Deadly Intent


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ October 29, 2007


“BEWARE THE LEADER WHO BANGS THE DRUMS of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. I am Caesar.” –Anonymous

Great lead in to this, an essay on the fascistic fervor that has gripped this nation, in the guise of patriotism, and enabled our Caesar George Bush to capture the freedoms of the American people and deliver them up as a sacrifice to his gods the world elites. In case it has escaped the attention of the sheep of this nation we have been subject to a fascist government for some time now. Since we have an almost absolutely uneducated population the fascists that have delivered the nation into the hands of the world elites have for the most part escaped detection. Such have been aided and abetted in their goals by misguided patriots who revere the state as a god, notice that I said that our population is uneducated; I did not say that they are not indoctrinated, in this country indoctrination is called education and is a substitution for the application of learning and understanding. Who do we blame for this? Not the elites who endeavor to suppress the human spirit, but rather the people of the many thousands of local jurisdictions in the states of the nation who long ago relinquished control of their schools and affairs without a whimper or a fight. When they could have resisted they did not, they simply rolled over like dead fish in a pond.

The people of the United States have been trained like seals to except the dictates of a despotic system. In plain fact they have been controlled by fascist mongrels for a long while now, and have been completely duped as to the state of affairs that prevails in their own country. They wander through life in an aimless brainless state of being like automons reacting only to the stimuli applied by the elites who control them. Think not that the intelligentsia is less controlled and deceived than the mopes who leave their nests daily to toil and labor for their keepers and then return to the nest to partake of the electronic and chemical opiates that keep them mollified. Those who congratulate themselves on their superior intelligence and flaunt their worthless degrees to prove their transcendence are no less deceived than the working stiffs that they condescend and look down upon, they are just a more advanced type of robot. They have been programmed to deliver and inculcate the godless doctrines that have enslaved their fellow beings, the drones whose labors fund the perks of the intelligentsia’s more sophisticated and elevated status in society.

The most amazing part of this is how adept and successful the elites and their government servants have been in adapting the people to an existence almost exactly like that of National Socialist Germany and other fascist societies while at the same time feigning and faking a dislike for fascism. They do indeed have the deviousness of the devil; their duplicitous maneuverings are transparent only to those who have the Spirit of truth in them. It would be humorous if it weren’t so tragic; we have millions of people moving through life in this nation who hate Nazis and yet live with almost the exact same circumstances in regard to the control of every aspect of their lives as those who lived under Nazi governance.

Of course the elites cannot allow an awakening of spirit in those who do their bidding, such is a danger as it can ignite rebellion against their suppressive domination of the masses who outnumber the elites hugely and have it in their power to bring down the nearly complete, but still tenuous, establishment of a new world order. This is not their only fear; such a massive rebellion could conceivably pave the way for their destruction and even (shudder) their own deaths. Better the death of a million of the multitude than the death of one elite. With their increasing successes they have become increasingly careless in covering their tracks and maintaining their anonymity. To know them is to hate them and to hate them is to desire their destruction.

To head off such a fate these little sparks of independence must be extinguished before they develop into a raging fire that enfolds the elites in a tumultuous end and consumes the evil works that they have accomplished. No means to exterminate these potential threats is beyond their contemplation. One can assume that recalcitrant government subordinates who threaten the elites and imperil their progress with independent notions, thoughts and actions are warned most strenuously of the probable consequences of their flights into what the elites consider to be threatening, dangerous and unreasonable activities.

During the latter part of his term in office it is quite obvious that Jack Kennedy was managing to escape the tentacles of the elites. This foul subservience that had been thrust upon him had been a legacy from his mobbed up corrupt father who had been in deep service to the elites. Jack Kennedy had acquired the office by virtue of the machinations of the reprobate politicos that were, and are, controlled by the elites. Conversely he was most certainly headed for a second term in office by virtue of the fact that he was a truly developing statesman in American politics. In truth he had captured the hearts of the American people and didn’t need the elites anymore. In plain words he had become an asset to the people and a menace to the aspirations of the elites and to their puppets in government and elsewhere.

The veil had fallen from his eyes and he was becoming fully cognizant of the putridness, which confronted him. There is much speculation that he was warned of the possible ultimate consequences of his independent course, and that he had boldly stepped out in rebellion anyway. He was a spark that was rapidly being fanned into a flame and it was urgently necessary that he be extinguished. He was summarily executed, his executioner was then quickly murdered to keep him from exposing those who were behind the assassination and the assigned assassinator of his executioner was likewise dealt with, all in rapid succession and with vicious and deadly finality. His successor, Lyndon Johnson, who was almost certainly a co-conspirator in his assassination, was a corrupt to the bone puppet of the elites and quickly moved to erase all evidence of the vile intrigues that had extinguished the flames of a developing light and a possible path to a deliverance of the people from tyranny. As a bit of insurance against further brash affronts to their established control over the government President Kennedy’s brother Robert, who had been a close confidant of Jack, was likewise dispatched summarily by a bullet from the gun of a controlled assassin. All conjecture you say, don’t bet your life, or what precious little remains of your freedoms, on that.

What is most interesting here is the fact that the same blood courses through the veins of that worthless reprobate Edward Kennedy as ran through the veins of his clearly more intelligent and perceptive brothers, Jack and Bobby. Without a doubt we are dealing with the black sheep syndrome here. Where is the justice in life when two brothers of worth are exterminated while a third, a cowardly killer of a young lady, wanders through the senate like a bloated and perverted whale.

Ron Paul, as a true statesman and an upholder of the truth, should be increasingly vigilant. If it is established that he has a credible chance to seize the nomination and move onto the presidency it will not go unnoticed by the elites who have everything to lose if government is severed from corporate control and the sovereignty of the people is restored. If the spark that he has ignited is fanned into a flame for freedom he needs to be acutely aware that the dark forces of evil will be stalking him with malevolent intent. He is a man of great integrity and a man of faith, and as such he has more value than the entire cadre of political opportunists in the congress – and the white house – who serve the corporatists and the elites and prevail against the freedoms of the people. It has become a very dangerous country for those who oppose tyranny and advocate for truth.

As I have written in the past it is now or never time for the people of this nation. Black as it seems and futile as it may appear to be there is a course of action, which if initiated could deliver the country from the power of the elites. To start with we can do everything in our power to ignite a great grass roots crusade to enable the ascendancy of Ron Paul over the venal socialist competition of both parties, and elect him as president. Then we can assist him in restoring a Constitutional government by cleaning out every self-serving communistic loose constructionist donkey from the halls of congress. When that has been accomplished we need to clean the vices and the filthiness from our society and move this country back to the Christian principles of our forefathers. We have been ruled by lascivious derelicts and mired in social filth for so long that too many have gotten accustomed to the malodorous stink that is upon us. The devil has his teeth in us like a snake swallowing a toad. We will do something now, or after a last brief struggle we will exist only as a lump in the belly of the serpent.

Law Enforcement – The Shifting Ethics of The Law Enforcement Community


The Shifting Ethics of The Law
Enforcement Community


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ October 18, 2007


As I write this article the particulars are unfolding of the killing of six young people, and the critical wounding of another by a rampaging full-time Wisconsin deputy sheriff who also moonlighted in his off hours as a municipal police officer. To function in several law enforcement capacities is a fairly common practice among law enforcement officers. It is not my intent to indict an entire profession on a single incident of mass murder by one of its members, but it is high time that we as a nation confront that which has gotten to be most threatening and serious in regard to the increasing militancy and the us against them mentality of too many of those who make up the law enforcement community.

Recently a reader of my columns wrote to me in regard to this very problem and urged that I write a column to address the issue. She wrote in part, “we are now witnessing a further result of the unconstitutional destruction of the separation of jurisdictions between levels of enforcement authority. Local law enforcement officers are freely using brutal tactics, not to protect the citizens, but to maintain and further the corrupt, illegal, lying, and murderous status quo. The emerging youthful beardless boys of arrogant police agencies who have had no training in, and evidence no regard for, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights compound this condition.

Despite all their new equipment, massive arsenals, body armor, and federal monies, these brave new police enforcers will hide behind trees, buildings, vehicles, and obey incredible orders to stand down instead of attempting to rescue a disarmed and meek citizen or citizens being slaughtered by some crazed individual or by another freaked out ‘law’ agency conducting raids upon unsuspecting and often totally innocent people. Those who resist in any way these incursions are murdered wholesale and burned out.

When I see horrifying events like these, I remember the totally different attitude and valiant actions by far less equipped and far more exposed police officers actively and courageously risking their lives, trying to pull the wounded and dead victims to shelter, while a law-abiding and armed citizenry helps to pin down a sniper so the police could work their way into a building to end that tragedy as fast as possible.”

This lady has very astutely identified the increasing hostility and the shift in ethics and principles of all too many in the law enforcement community. She also quite correctly identifies the corrosion of the profession and the corrupting influence of the federal government, which should have no control or ascendancy over local law enforcement agencies.

Lest one think that this is just sour-grapes by a civilian who resents the authority of law enforcement officers it is necessary that I mention the fact that I receive letters from active and retired members of the law enforcement community who echo this writers thoughts and outrage in regard to the deterioration of the law enforcement fraternity. A recently retired police officer wrote the following, “The current compliment of young officers contains too many who are arrogant, undisciplined and sadistic in the performance of their duties. They have little or no regard or respect for the rights of ordinary citizens and often deprive them of their dignity as human beings with their roughshod tactics.”

Just as the volunteer and paid military personnel of today no longer resemble greatly the conscripted civilian servicemen who stormed the beaches of Normandy and slogged their way across Europe or the valiant civilian turned warriors who fought through steamy jungles and assaulted the beaches of various enemy held Pacific islands, the law enforcement officers of today bear little resemblance to their counterparts of yesteryear. These were aptly called peace officers and they served as the protectors of their fellow citizens under the most humble of circumstances in regard to pay and remunerative benefits.

The difference between those who served in the law enforcement ranks forty to fifty years ago and those who serve today is evidenced by the fact that the mindset of the officers of the past and those of the current crop, in regard to service to the public, are miles apart. It irritates me to no end to see the decals on today’s patrol cars, which declare that the occupants “serve and protect”. Indeed actions speak louder than words or decals on a car, and all too often today the actions of police officers are in conflict with the self-serving words displayed on their cruisers.

To be totally honest I have to point out that this changed paradigm is not just confined to the police services. It is a reflection of the great degradation of morals and personal ethics that had washed over this country and sucked the young into a malevolent maelstrom of degeneracy. If it feels good do it, if it titillates the senses do it, if it adversely affects others too bad. This has gotten to be the creed of a large number of people in this country, and we are paying a very heavy price indeed for this slide into immorality. The quality of not being in accord with proper standards of right and good conduct is pulling society down on all levels and unraveling the ethical standards of too many of our once solid professions. Nowhere is this more evident than in the law enforcement profession today.

It used to be that candidates for positions in law enforcement were simply selected for recruitment on the basis of their moral and ethical standards in the community. They were interviewed and then carefully chosen acquaintances, past employers, neighbors, former teachers and other community leaders were sought out and queried as to their observations of the individuals who were being considered for these important positions. The law enforcement administrator of the agency was the ultimate and final authority on whether or not a candidate was hired. It was a simple process that worked remarkably well as is attested by the quality of those that were hired. Once they were on board their superior officers were in a position to assess their capabilities and their suitability for the various special functions within the department. And they did not need civil service commissions to direct, dictate or assist them in the process.

Through the years the criteria for the selection of law enforcement candidates and the mandatory prerequisites for the hiring and training thereof changed drastically when state legislative bodies turned the process over to the bureaucrats. There is absolutely nothing that bureaucrats cannot screw up, and they have done a magnificent job of screwing up law enforcement.

These perpetual meddlers in all things determined that candidates should be psychologically tested before even being considered for a law enforcement position. Generally the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory test referred to as the MMPI is used to determine if a candidate is personally qualified to function as a law enforcement officer. The test consists of 567 true or false questions regarding the candidate’s likes, dislikes, personal habits and predilections, which purportedly enables an evaluator to make a determination if a candidate is a nut case or is well adjusted. Some of the questions restrict a candidate’s ability to provide other than one answer to a question that presents multiplex possibilities. For example candidates are asked if they like little boys better than little girls or conversely if a candidate likes little girls better than little boys. He may like little boys and little girls equally well, but he is not given that option. There are some very strange questions on the test, and I recall the absolute dismay of the sheriff of a fairly large county over the fact that his candidates were being queried as to whether their feces was light colored or black and tarry. The sheriff was in a state of apoplexy, as he furiously demanded to know what dark stools had to do with whether or not a candidate was suitable for employment. Maybe, he opined, we ought to require stool samples as a prerequisite for the hiring of new officers.

Recently in Delaware a young freshly and honorably discharged Marine, Sergeant Derek Hale, was beset by a police execution squad pursuant to an investigation of his association with a motorcycle gang, with which he had been working on a Toys for Tots project. Sergeant Hale was married and the father of two children who along with his wife witnessed his execution. The young man who had absolutely no criminal history and who had, by virtue of his unblemished history, been issued a concealed-weapons permit was minding his own business when the police goon squad screeched up. When the bewildered former Marine, who had been sitting on a front stoop, rose to his feet he was tasered and thrown to the ground. Paralyzed by the voltage he was unable to comply with an order to raise his hands so he was tasered again this time the voltage sickened him so that he vomited and further rendered him incapable of responding to the shouted commands of the storm troopers. In quick succession he was tasered a third time and when he was in a completely helpless and vulnerable state of being one of the brave members of the squad, a Lieutenant of the Wilmington Police Department moved in close and at point black range shot him three times in the chest, the .40 caliber slugs shredding his insides. May the infamy of this murderer follow him to his grave and beyond.

I can virtually assure you that this Lieutenant had been tested and found to be mentally sound and competent to perform police services. I also would venture to say that the deputy sheriff from Wisconsin discussed previously who cold bloodedly riddled the bodies of seven people with bullets had likewise been tested and found to be fit to serve his community as a certified and duly appointed law enforcement officer, so much for the fake science of psychology. If these officers are not nut cases – and their psychometric tests say that they are not – then it stands to reason they must simply be brutal and sadistic murderous thugs.

We have come to a point in this country where police death squads in coal scuttle helmets, black armor and jack-boots strike the same terror and fear into the hearts of innocent law-abiding citizens that their counterparts of the SA and SS did in Nazi Germany. All that is missing is a crooked cross upon their helmets.

How is it that the law enforcement profession has come to it present deplorable and damnable state of being? It is evident that the federal government and the bureaucratic agencies thereof have had a great and corrupting influence upon local law enforcement and that the meddling politicians on all levels of government are equally culpable. It cannot be contended that all law enforcement officers are inherent bullies and molesters of the people of their communities, but it can be declared that forces well beyond their control have molded many of them in that image.

The politicians and bureaucrats who comprise our governments on all levels have an insatiable lust for the people’s money. They contrive at all times to tap into the fruits of the labors of the poor saps that have put them into the offices that they occupy. They have taxed everything that their people possess or hope to possess. Since their constituents have been taxed to the max they have turned, in their money mad intoxication, to other sources of revenues. One of these sources has been the fines and costs assessed for infractions of the millions of laws that they have put into place. Just as they have never met a tax that they didn’t like they have likewise not crafted a law or administrative rule that did not meet their approval as a revenue maker. Every day the various governments haul in millions of dollars in totally unreasonable fines and costs from hapless citizens for minor infractions of one kind or another.

Law enforcement administrators will tell you, if they are honest, that they are subjected to considerable pressure from city councils and administrators, county boards and state legislatures to ensure a steady flow of monies into their treasuries through a heavy handed enforcement of misdemeanor statutes. The motor vehicle statutes are often the most abused in this regard. As a former law enforcement administrator I can attest to the truthfulness of that which I write in this regard.

Lawmakers have ingeniously built a clever innovation into the way that these spoils are dispersed and distributed. The gross take is proportionally allotted to the various government entities in the order of rank and importance much in the way that the gangsters dispersed their ill-gotten gains. I believe that the politicians and their pandering bureaucratic buddies have raised legal extortion and larceny to new levels. As I stated each government entity is allocated a percentage of the take in descending order, the state retains the lions share, as did Al Capone, and the remaining levels of government receive a cut of the balance.

Just as Al Capone and the other gangster lords had soldiers to make their collections so does the government, they are called policemen.

Most police agencies deny that they have in place a quota system, they are lying and they know that they are lying. They just use semantics to disguise or camouflage what is essentially a quota system. A state trooper explained his quota system to me thusly: “Each month I am scheduled for an evaluation as is every trooper in the organization. At the evaluation a computer printout of my monthly activity in regard to the citations that I have, or have not, written is presented. The commanding officer conducting the “evaluation” goes over every statute in the motor vehicle code and sternly draws my attention to the statutes for which I have written few or no citations. Protestations to the effect that I did not observe violations being committed in these areas hold no water with my superior. I am admonished that in future evaluations there had better be some increased activity in these areas or else. I am left to my own devices as to how to generate such activity, which in essence means that I have to either fake it or be left to face the consequences.”

We have reached an execrable state of being in regard to the state of law enforcement in this nation today. When law enforcement people are forced into dishonesty and when individual officers are transformed into sadistic bullies and more, we have much to fear.

I am apolitical, but I have to close this out with the following admonition. We are on the final leg of a journey into perdition. I am thoroughly convinced that our Creator would be absolutely justified should He rain destruction upon this fallen nation, and I expect it momentarily. If there is in fact no move toward repentance we will have no one to blame for our demise other than ourselves. We need to get our house in order and we need to do it this very moment not tomorrow, not next week, not next year, it has to be done now! We must start with our own lives then we need to move to quickly clean out every last rotten and corrupt public official in this nation, from the top to the bottom. I wish that the elections were tomorrow because our time is critically short. If we elect any of the candidates other than Ron Paul we are destined for the pit. There are none on the Democratic side who are morally upright, and only several on the Republican side who are ethically fit. Ron Paul is not only morally upright and ethically fit, he is constitutionally correct and he is our last best hope in 2008, if we make it that far.

Blind – None Are So Blind As Those Who Will Not See The Truth


None Are So Blind As Those
Who Will Not See The Truth


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ September 24, 2007


Last week we witnessed another act in the traveling George Bush Dog and Pony Show.

Two Bush administration lackeys, U.S. Army General David Petreus and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker, were the center-ring attraction at a performance of the greatest comedy show on earth the congressional circus. Unable to sustain a desired momentum for his killing campaign in Iraq, which is costing the taxpayers of the United States $122,820.00 a minute or $7.4 Million dollars an hour, the president was forced to trot out his ace sycophants to woo and deceive the people and the congress with more of the same old administration exaggerations and foolishly false contentions that we are winning the war. Here is the sad part everybody knows; and facts are abundant to prove it, that this most shameful military incursion in the nation’s history is a total disaster. In truth it is and always was an unrighteous war that is guaranteed to pull the country down militarily, economically and ethically, one has to question if it is at all possible for this nation to sink any lower ethically, the media knows this as does the majority of the people yet they follow the lies of the administration like stink follows a skunk.

I would imagine that George Bush gives thanks every day that the people of this nation have a propensity to readily believe the lies of his administration and to be easily deceived. And so it was more of the same this week No sooner had George’s carefully selected protagonists left the stage, and the congress had lowered the circus tent and packed it away for another day, than the media was busy pounding the airwaves with the joyous news that things in Iraq were not nearly so bad as it seemed, this despite the fact that U.S. casualties continue to climb at an accelerated rate and that one million Iraqi civilians have been killed since the inception of the Bush Administration’s alleged war for democracy. The handpicked, by GWB, Iraqi puppet government huffily denies these casualty statistics, and maintains that only a mere 650,000 to 750,000 of their people have been killed. Gee-whiz, what a relief everybody should now feel so much better about old George’s war.

In truth the fact of the matter is that George Bush is desperate to keep the war active so that he can keep the troops, battle groups and machinery of war in place in the middle-east for another of his preemptive strikes, this time against Iran. One undeclared war follows another it is only necessary that the aggression be rationalized by lies and half-truths. Adolph Hitler invented the tactics that George Bush employs so well today. I’m convinced that the president reasons why not since no one with the authority or the courage to do so has seized his criminal behind and tossed him into the clink where he rightfully belongs. It is a strange land, is it not? The entire country was bent out of shape (rightfully so) when Bill Clinton lied about having sex with an intern, but no one seems to care much about the fact that George Bush lies serially and boldly about a war that has cost the country dearly in the terms of lives, credibility and money.

This whole staged Petraeus/Crocker episode brought to mind an old song by country singer Bobby Bare about the witch, Marie Laveau who was able to do a little magic to banish those who crossed her in ways that provoked her. It seems that George Bush, like the bent and bony witch of Bare’s song, possesses these same mystical occultist qualities. When confronted by those who oppose his unconstitutional and dictatorial activities he “does a little magic, shakes a little sand, makes a million lies and puts them in our hands, and whoooeeee, Another foe done gone.”

This week an article was emailed to me, which was written by Michael Gaddy the title of which was “Worshipping the State: Why They Die” I am continually enlightened by articles not authored by me, but that I sincerely wish that I had written. However, I also sincerely doubt that I could have expressed myself so eloquently and with such great feeling and passion as did Mr. Gaddy. Nevertheless I resolved to pick up on the theme of the article and express some personal thoughts on his subject, which was the subservience of our military to a criminal regime that has stolen the sovereignty of the people and set the nation up for disaster. Mr. Gaddy has written that our military swears allegiance to the Constitution, but disregards the obligation thereto and instead panders to a governmental criminal enterprise. I seriously urge readers to use the link to read the article. Mr. Gaddy makes no bones about the undeniable fact that George Bush and his fascist cronies have dismantled the Bill of Rights, sacked the Constitution, nullified the guarantee against illegal imprisonment provided by Habeas Corpus and effectively invalidated states rights. In my words, not his, we are now a nation of regimented automons programmed to subservience to a fascist state and controlled and enslaved by the soulless national socialistic leaders thereof.

Many will greet Mr. Gaddy’s article, and mine, with a completely closed mind. The reason for that is that we no longer function as freethinking individuals in this country. To do so is to be labeled as a subversive or a traitor – a traitor to whom? To whom should we give our allegiance? To a government staffed by lying criminals who rule the people by intimidation and by the instilling of fear? I think not. Patriotism is not about serving a government; it is about serving the people in a selfless and meaningful way.

Today we no longer have an armed force that is comprised of citizen soldiers who do their duty in response to threats to the homeland and then return to civilian society once the threat has been terminated by their dedicated service. Those who now serve in the military no longer represent or defend the freedoms of the people as citizen soldiers; they are instead beholden only to a totalitarian collective. The armed services are comprised of volunteers who have been indoctrinated to believe that their service and their allegiance is to the state, right or wrong. One is forced to ask, is it honorable to render allegiance and give service to a state that is pursuing objectives that are contrary to the principles of justice and law, and are of an outright criminal nature?

Those who are totally honest will concede that Iraq had not a thing to do with 9-11, and all, but the absolutely deceived, also know that there were no weapons of mass destruction or any intent by Saddam Hussein’s government to attack the United States. We were lied to and subjected to a steady stream of contrived myths (outright lies) that were designed to instill a false belief that the United States was under the threat of an imminent attack by Iraq. These mythical creations were designed to lead the sheep of the nation into support for an undeclared and illegal war. There was no declaration of war only a resolution by a deceived and compliant congress that allowed, by their pusillanimity, the Bush administration to pursue an outright war of aggression, a war entirely without a just cause.

We will lose this war just as we lost the Vietnam War. When we fight just wars and follow constitutional mandates in regard to pursuing active involvement in a conflict we have the satisfaction of knowing that we are superior to our enemies in regard to moral principles and are more likely to be on the winning side. It is the belligerent bullies – aggressors – of the world that fall by the sword. Those who continually beat the drum for preemptive wars, regardless of a lack outright provocation, make me sick. They are no less criminal in nature than a gangster who murders one who he believes, without reason, may come after him. A preemptive strike today is no less damnable, unequivocally detestable and morally wrong than it was at Pearl Harbor. We will pay the price for our belligerent aggressiveness. Whatsoever a nation sows so shall it reap. In plain terms, what goes around comes around. We are about to learn a lesson that so many nations have learned before us. To defend our nation is morally just, to assault another without reasonable cause is morally reprehensible.

Nation – Time Has Run Out For This Nation


Time Has Run Out For This Nation


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ September 03, 2007


If you have been watching the news, reading the blogs, and listening to your president, George Walker Bush lately, you have undoubtedly picked up on the renewed and aggressive talk down of those who have great and grave concerns about the direction of the nation and the treacherous connivances of Mr. Bush and his administration. Indeed we have witnessed, this week, a quick resurrection of the apologists for the president and the increasingly bankrupt policies of his administration.

The American people had enjoyed a relatively short hibernation by the pontificates that pander to the administration’s goal of unlimited immigration and unlimited wars and the goofy minions who seem to believe his pronouncement that he is a mouthpiece for God. In truth these types laid low after the beating they took at the hands of an aroused citizenry in regard to the amnesty bill, which thanks to enraged citizen activists suffered an ignominious defeat. The deep humiliation inflicted upon the super inflated egos of the “I always know what’s best crowd” was heartening and wondrous to behold. For a brief while the country enjoyed a respite from the hot air specialists who have an inflated opinion of their own importance and who use the power of the media to cajole and wheedle the drones that they look down upon to capitulate to their way of thinking. And also for that brief while I sensed a measure of pride among those who prevailed against the giant and brought him down with a barrage of public indignation that collapsed the congressional phone system and caused trickles of sweat to course down the tailbones of more than a few pompous windbags in the senate.

But, alas it seems that this week we have returned to the status quo and reverted to form. The media and the president have re-instituted lies and subjugated the truth in pursuit of their goals and they have, in lieu of being honest about their intent, used scorn and ridicule to denigrate those who have questioned their motives and demanded an explanation of their activities.

At the conclusion of another secret Security and Partnership meeting between Mr. Bush and his counterparts from Mexico and Canada the president was asked by a reporter if the meeting was in fact a prelude to a North American Union similar to the European Union and if there were plans to build a super highway connecting the three North American Countries. The president chose to sidestep honesty once again by resorting to equivocation and by deploying the slick evasiveness he possesses as an accomplished liar. His response was to express scorn for those who rightfully raise legitimate questions concerning the activities of their government and by ridiculing those who do raise such questions by poking fun of them as conspiracy theorists. In the famed words of his own utterance, the president was once again “catapulting the propaganda.”

Even a cursory study of his political background discloses the fact that he has a long history, both as governor and as president, of deceit, and of exceeding the authority vested in his office by boldly evading the constraints of the laws governing his authority.

No lie is of the truth, and the truth is that people do not like the truth. At least we seem to value lies over the truth, are we really that perverse? The answer is, yes, we are. When I stated that we have reverted to form, I mean that we have done so with a vengeance. With the 2008 presidential campaign underway; we are once again immersed in a sea of lies. And it is only going to get worse.

Indeed those who mostly live by the lie seem to gain the most. Some would lie if the truth sounded better, but the majority seems to lie to cover up previous commitments to debased causes such as support for abortion, affirmation of deviant lifestyles, endorsement of same sex marriages, abolishment of gun ownership and a commitment to unrestrained immigration. If these causes, which they had previously embraced with fervor, were so great why is it that they must now lie about what they once considered to be righteous and acceptable? Do they not have core principles? Undoubtedly the answer to that question is, no they do not.

I never fail to be amazed at the gullibility of the people and their willingness to accept these lies on their face. Are their memories really that short, and if they are, are they too lazy to research the political backgrounds of the candidates? When we accept the lies of the politicians, we enable the debased of mind to rule over us. That this is the case has been demonstrated through the last four presidential administrations. All truly decadent by any standard, but still embraced as good by too many people to ignore. If the morals and character of the people reflect those of the politicians who have ruled over us in the past fourteen years, we are in deep trouble. The fact is that we are indeed in deep trouble; we suffer from a systemic disorder more dire than the majority of our people realize. We could broaden that time frame a bit if we were to include Lynden B. Johnson, but for the sake of adhering to a continuous and unbroken line of corrupt rule I cite only the Clinton and Bush dynasties. Since they are of different parties it is undeniably correct that party is not a common denominator. The common denominator here is a debased spirit that has been disassociated from God and His truths.

So, why is it that our people are so accepting of perversions of the truth? The deplorable fact is that we condition our people from the time that they are children to believe lies. Think about it, Almighty God the Spirit who holds the universe together by the universal laws that He instituted through creation, gave us the truth of our beginning in Genesis. We have chosen to call Him a liar, and to deny His account of our origins. Instead of relying upon God’s truth puny men have corrupted His word and substituted their own theories as to our beginning. By the power of the government and those who control the school systems in this country those theories (lies) are enforced as the truth. Our children are being force-fed lies, and then we wonder why they cannot distinguish between the truth and perversions of the truth. Please, I do not wish to hear from Darwinists and evolution theorists; my mind is as closed to this crap as George Bush’s mind is to the truth. In short I am not one of those who professes to be Christian, but denies God’s truth by substituting the lies of men for the word of God.

I personally do not believe that we will see another president. I believe that George W. Bush will usher out the end of an age for this country and that the United States will cease to exist as an independent nation. I am not a prognosticator or a prophet. I simply have a very strong conviction that we have run our string. God has washed His hands of us. He has disassociated Himself from us and allowed us to be possessed of a corrupt mind and to be delivered up to the devastating consequences of our own wrong choices. The Apostle Paul expressed it thusly: “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind.” Romans 1:28

When it happens it will come on with blinding suddenness. We have been warned time and time again, but like those who ridiculed and vindictively scorned Noah for building a ship on dry land we have employed the same derision in response to the messages of the watchmen of our times, and so at zero hour we will be surprised! Since we have distanced ourselves from Almighty God, He has distanced Himself from us. When the time comes we will beg, cry and plead, but it will be to no avail. Many will blame the very God who they denied, ignored and defamed with vituperation, and few will acknowledge that it was their own conscious acts of disobedience and denial that brought them to such a disaster. We are seeing the fingers of the approaching time of destruction daily, but we continue, as we always have, to put it down as coincidence. These trickles are sure signs that the dam has been breached and that it is only a matter of time until the deluge will submerge us in the climactic events of the time of retribution.

Affliction – Ridding The Nation of A Parasitic Affliction


Ridding The Nation of A Parasitic Affliction


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ August 17, 2007


“James K. Polk Where Are You When We Need You, We Are Being Governed By Idiots”

The invasion by illegal aliens is not the only dire threat that confronts us today, but other than the fascist government that deliberately enables it, it is the most critical threat to face this nation in its history, and that includes two world wars, the fighting of which never reached our shores.

The invasion of the nation proper by millions of illegal aliens can no longer be considered to be only a nuisance or a situation that we can withstand with little consequence. We simply cannot continue to ignore or countenance the hoards of law-breaking invaders that pour across our borders with impunity and with nothing in the way of containment by our government. Our politicians should be dragged from the chambers that they profane by their very presence and be scourged and whipped as traitors to the nation and to the people who they purportedly represent.

All but a handful of Senators and entirely too many Congressional Representatives have encouraged and ignored the festering disease of illegal border crashing and allowed it to burgeon into an insidious malignancy, which rots away the foundations of the nation and threatens the people of this nation with a full-fledged insurrection by a non-indigenous people whose stated purpose is to pave the way for the overthrow of the nation, to institutionalize a socialistic order, and to banish entirely those European and African descendents who by their sweat and ingenuity built the nation and defended its principles through two world wars.

I have long maintained, and still do, that if for no other reason than to head off the possibility of such an overthrow, that every last man, woman, and child, who are in this country by a means other than lawful immigration, must be purged from the country by deportation. I have also maintained that despite what George W. Bush, the witting head of this increasingly militant insurgency, tells you we have everything to fear from the Latin-American hoards that have illegally invaded our borders and laid siege to our institutions and our society. One has only to look to the statements by militant Hispanic groups in this country and the pronouncements of equally militant leaders of Latin-American countries to ascertain that these have designs on the United States as a place to provide living space for their masses. With avaricious desire they contemplate the appropriation of the infrastructure and the resources of a nation built upon the sweat and blood of the millions of Euro-Americans and Afro-Americans who established and populated this nation. Like Hitler who looked to Poland and Czechoslovakia for Lebensraum (Lining Space) for the German people these suckers covet the United States in likewise fashion.

I once wrote a piece in which I contended that not only is the huge and ever growing number of illegal aliens – who may call themselves by various names such as Latinos, Mestizos, Hispanics, Nican Tlaca, or whatever – in this country a threat to our economic well-being and social stability, it also constitutes a precursor to a military invasion of the country from the south. As previously stated these people and these governments have no love for the United States, they have only an abiding hatred for, and a jealousy of, our people, and an insatiable lust for that which belongs to us. The only friend that we have upon the North American continent is Canada; the letters that I receive from our neighbors to the north indicates such. If, or when, the internal stability of this nation dissipates to a point where our military formidability can no longer assure the inviolability of our borders, a situation not too far fetched in view of current events, we can expect a military invasion across our southern borders, and the invaders will have the advantage of thirty to forty million or more well placed saboteurs and guerilla insurgents.

The last time that I laid out this scenario in writing, some idiot wrote and said, “Hahahahahohohoheeheehee what a laugh to think that these ignorant countries could prevail against our invincible military, dream on.” The only ignorance that I could perceive was that of the person who wrote that letter. No military is invincible; if history has taught us anything it has taught us that. The Russians thought that they were invincible when they invaded Afghanistan, and they were completely outfought demoralized and humiliated by the rag tag guerilla fighters who prevailed against them, and think of the fact that our supposedly invincible military forces have not been able to diminish or eliminate the presence of the militant insurgents in Iraq and the middle-east. Now envision, if you will, what would have been the result if some thirty to forty million well placed American and English foot-loose and unrestrained internal agents, who were loyal to the countries of their origin, had been allowed to infiltrate pre-war Germany. Of course we know that Adolph Hitler, unlike the cretin who serves as our commander-in-chief, had more brains than to allow this to happen, but for the sake of argument let’s assume that these foreign agents had been allowed to infiltrate to the extent that the United States has been infiltrated by foreign nationals and I believe that you will concede that these millions could have created an internal havoc, which would have shortened the war in our favor considerably.

I used to think that the people of this country had little discernment and even less God-given common sense, and that they were a hopeless cause. I have altered that opinion to a great extent given the fact that eighty percent of the people have demonstrated that they do have a capacity for common sense and that they recognize the dire consequence of the invasion of millions of illegal aliens. To the politically correct who think that I use the term alien to cause my readers to equate these invaders with the grotesque caricatures of space invaders, you are right. Since I am not politically correct it bothers me not to do so. It is the abysmally ignorant minions of our government who have reached the absolute ultimate in stupidity and who have demonstrated a lack of lucidity and the grievously greedy, grasping and predatory people in high places who wish to surrender the nation to selfish causes that have earned my detestation. I’m talking about those in this country who would sacrifice their mother for a dirty dollar. In other words those who sit upon their thinking apparatus and lust after the god of money. In case I have not made myself absolutely clear in this regard, I include in this group the corporations, big business moguls, some, but not all, trade unionists, the Chamber of Commerce on both the national and state levels, and last, but not least, the politically correct do-gooders who invariably champion wrong causes and do their level best to suppress the freedoms of their neighbors.

Anyone who would sacrifice the lives and well-being of his, or her, fellow citizens for filthy lucre or social expediency is corrupt of mind and soul and has no worth or value to the nation. They just take up space and breathe air that should be reserved for selfless servants of the human race.

It is sink or swim time for this nation. Illegal parasites are tied to this nation like a dead weight and are pulling us into the depths of a sea of destruction and strangulating a once vibrant society. The economic stress is overwhelming, the deterioration is fearful, and the transformation of our culture to that of a third-world nation is disheartening. The lives of every last citizen of the nation has been jeopardized by these invaders, that the criminal miscreants from among the thirty million illegal invaders have taken the lives of forty-two thousand lawful and peace abiding United States citizens points up the monstrousness of this deliberately countenanced invasion. The president and every last one of the demonically led people, heretofore delineated, who have enabled these killers will stand to account for every single life that has been sacrificed to their greed and their deviancy of mind.

The solution is simple. When I was a youth I would be required to assist my Dad who was a mechanic. Often times while toiling in his shop he would, being too engaged in his work to leave it, send me to the work bench for a specific tool. It seems that invariably I would be unable to locate the tool that he would need, and I would exclaim, “Dad, I can’t find it.” He would then disengage himself from the task at hand and walk to the workbench, pick up the tool, and then say to me, “If it had been a snake it would have bit you.” It occurs to me that we have a similar situation in regard to the need of a tool to remove from our midst these destructive invaders. The tool is fully in view and accessible; that tool is deportation. The politicians fume, dawdle, pontificate and procrastinate. They huff and puff about finding the right solution, when that solution is at hand and has been all along, if it had been a snake it would have bit them.

Reliable estimates of the annual cost to American taxpayers to sustain and provide for the welfare of these criminal invaders is, $338.3 billion dollars annually. This is the on-going cost of the coddling of these law-breakers, and it increases incrementally as untold numbers of additional aliens crash our borders daily to join the unholy flock already in the country. The politicians, and the idiots in the media who parrot them, pee and moan that a one-time cost of $230 billion dollars for the deportation of the entirety of this parasitic clump is prohibitive. One has to wonder where these geniuses received their mathematical prowess. It must have been garnered in the same public school system that they have corrupted with money, ignorance, and their infernal meddling.

Tyrants – Conscripted Into A New World Order By Tyrants


Conscripted Into A New World Order By Tyrants


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ August 6, 2007


“A tempest of tyranny and treachery blows across the land, a mantle of suppression settles upon us with stifling weight. Demons incarnate tread upon our freedoms. Our liberties are sacrificed to gods of a new order. By their command riders of the dragon steal our dignity. The inglorious slaves of a tyrannical master smother the spirit, and the hot breath of evil pursues us and deadens our souls. No patriot deliverer lifts us from the abyss; no righteous mortal exempts us from delusional pursuits. We are damned to extinction and doomed to oblivion by the corrupt and the depraved that have, with our commendation, consigned us to a hell of the devil’s making. Such is the fate of the faint-hearted many at the hands of a perfidious few.”

In my last article, “The Setting Up Of The Devil’s Kingdom On Earth” I applied a Biblical perspective to the coming to pass of a new world order of the devil’s design. Those who are in the world, but not of the world understand that the fate of the world, and that of the United States, rests neither with the present god of this world who calls the nations his own nor with his human disciples. Though his evil falls upon us and his mentored prevail against us, he, and they, are not the arbiters of our fate, the ultimate destiny of the world, this nation, and every soul upon the earth rests with the Son of the most-high God; the creator of the heavens and the earth and of everything in and upon them.

We petition for redress of the afflictions upon us in all the wrong channels, and we look for a savior in all the wrong places. Since our pleadings are sown to the wind we reap the whirlwind. The powers that have brought these adversities upon us are not going to deliver us from that of their own making.

The tyranny that encroaches upon our liberties and steals our God-given rights is no longer being incrementally established or veiled from the conscious. The agents of a new order stand boldly before us. They flaunt their power and spit in our eye daring us to resist, and are increasingly emboldened by the cowardly response that they perceive.

Columnists write of a coming dictatorship and of a looming fascist control of our nation, they contend that the formation of the same is fast upon us. The truth is that it is already here, we are firmly clutched in the treacherous claws of an established totalitarian regime of fascist design. We just have not recognized it in its present guise. I submit that that we are under the rule of a fully established fascist consortium, a consortium with a shared commonality of mind, a consortium of agents dedicated to the final destruction of the pitiful vestiges of a once gallant Republic, a consortium of which George W. Bush is the head.

With increasing rapidity the president comes before a malleable media, which documents the treachery at hand, and signs into law that which abolishes another of our freedoms. The grinning congressional co-conspirators who draft these aberrations of the Constitution at his behest surround him and their faces reflect how great we are looks of smugness. The Constitution is enshrined and showcased to the world as a monument to freedom, but the principles thereof are spat upon and maligned. The courts give lip service to it, the congressional people quote from it to deceive the electorate, and the president totally ignores it. All of which forces one to ask, what good is it? When the president discounts it, and when the politicians and courts prevail against the God-given freedoms that it defines, it becomes no more than a dead document written by long dead patriots. The principles thereof, like those of the Bible, have been cunningly rationalized away by the devil’s disciples who rule over this spiritually fallen nation.

The last vestiges of a once great Republic are being washed away by the depredations of the unrighteous purveyors of new world doctrines. When the Republic breathes its last the obituary will read: This nation, plundered by the treasonous acts of its public officials, did not expire from natural causes; it was murdered with malice aforethought. The apologists who continually alibi for the assassins of the Republic call those who write columns such as this alarmist and question their patriotism. True patriots give their allegiance to truth, liberty and justice, and not to murderously treacherous systems of government.

Fascism is defined as a system of rule by an authoritarian hierarchical government. Conversely a Republic is defined as a political system governed by the people through democratically elected representatives. It is an established fact that our government now rules over the people with an iron fist and a tyrannical whip and extracts forcibly from them the fruits of their labor. The people have yielded to a corrupt institutionalized two-party system that severely limits their voting options and serves only the interests of monied internationalists. All of which should be a clue. A fascist regime governs unilaterally and suppresses the will of the people with dictatorial decrees and oppressive laws, despite protestations to the contrary by the apologists for our corrupt leaders and a denial by the weak-willed serfs of this nation, we are in fact being ruled over by a fascist regime.

The people of this nation should be aware of the deadly intent of President George W. Bush, and of those in government who mentor him, to destroy those who stand in the way of his wars for dominance and his destruction of those who refuse to submit to his international bullying. His executive orders have made that abundantly clear. He may not be the sharpest stick in the bundle, but he has the cunning and treachery of the devil himself. His memory is long; the polyps were in his colon and not in his brain. He has taken up the cause that his daddy started and was unable to finish. Saddam was finished off by the trickery and deceit of the two Georges. That a devious and treacherous man such as Saddam could be bested and destroyed by the likes of this pair is testimony to their guile and their single-mindedness of purpose. They are assassins par excellence. Mr. Ahmadinejad should be warned; he is not fooling with a rational being, or with a man of conscience. He is tangling with a fascist despot who has demonstrated that there are no constraints upon his power to war and to destroy, and one who will not let the will of the people get in his way. He is a deluded egotist who believes that he is divinely guided to rain destruction upon those who oppose him. It is the case of one despot against another, but George Bush holds all the aces. And those aces are unequalled in the history of mankind in regard to weaponry.

Mr. Ahmadinejad’s Iran is not a match and he should not delude himself into thinking that he has a chance to prevail should he allow George W. Bush to suck him into war. He should also know that Mr. Bush is completely uninhibited in regard to restraints, constitutional or otherwise, upon his power to war indiscriminately, and that his inventiveness in fabricating justification for war has no equal. A word to the wise should be a sufficient warning to those who have natural resources, such as oil, which are coveted by this administration.

Devil’s Kingdom – Setting Up The Devil’s Kingdom On Earth


Setting Up The Devil’s Kingdom On Earth


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ July 10, 2007


‘Tis done! Full soon thou’lt see my exultation; As for my bet no fears I entertain. And if my end I shall gain, Excuse my triumphing with all my soul. Dust shall he eat, ay, and with relish take, As did my cousin, the renowned snake. –Mephistopheles (Faust)

The saying is, that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Neither is the building of a world order a project of short duration. It is a work in progress, begun two thousand years ago and roiling ever onward, like the undercurrent of a muddy river, hidden from the thoughts and minds of unthinking drones, it nevertheless moves, as it always has, to an inexorable and inevitable conclusion. By malevolent design, stealth, and patiently skillful dedication the devil urges his men servants to the task, the building of a world-wide empire in which he will be worshipped by impious men. The end of the quest looms large as the wicked and depraved – man and spirit – pursue with frenzied energy, the final preparations for the subjugation of the nations’ to the tyranny of the evil one and those who do his bidding.

“I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the throne of God: I will sit upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the most High.” Isaiah 14:13-14

I have news for the old dragon, the only heights that he will achieve is the total, but short lived, domination of a fallen world and the reign that he will experience is the reign over the brutal and violent end of his counterfeit kingdom.

That a sizeable nucleus of dedicated men servants of the devil exists is readily apparent. Their work is evident even though they operate in the shadowy and murky depths of the boardrooms of the corporate and financial world and in the countless occulted secret societies. They may be diversely spread in regard to status and organization, but they serve the same master and are uniformly dedicated to the destruction of the sovereignty of the peoples of the world. Like the demons that they emulate they are legion and are called by many names. Whether they are known as Bildenbergers, Illuminati, Trilaterals, or they are of the Council on Foreign Relations, they are cut from the same cloth and belong to same dark spiritual family. They may invoke religious piety or hide behind philanthropic causes, but their ultimate cause is the establishment of Satan’s earthly kingdom, and like their master they were liars and murderers from the day of their birth. Service to the evil one was their destiny from before the foundations of the earth were laid, and death and destruction has been given into their hands.

Through the years these denizens of a dark spiritual order have created the conditions for the rise and reign of the likes of Nero, Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Pol Pot and others of their ilk. It would have bruised the massive egos of the former if they were to have been aware of the fact that they were used and manipulated by the exponents of internationalism and a one-world order, an order not of their own choosing. The one-world agents had cleverly played to their inflated feeling of pride in their superiority to others and extolled the virtues of their dehumanizing and occultist driven political platforms. They were entirely expendable and were nothing more than a deadly and spectacular splash upon the world scene. They flared brightly, killed many in their service to the powers principalities in high places, and then receded into an oblivion wrought by time. They paid the price for their flights into insanity, but their benefactors and boosters on the international scene skulked away in the calamitous aftermath of their demise and lived to mentor future devil’s disciples. The tyrants that they have raised and encouraged have served an indispensable purpose, they were, and are, integral pieces of a master plan, and as such they have paved the way for a continuing acceleration of the cause.

That the proponents of the program for Satan’s new worldwide kingdom have made great strides in Europe is evident. Almost the entirety of Europe has been enfolded into a single entity with common socio-economic and political goals. The continent is now home to a united populace who share a liberal socialistic commonality. The churches are for the most part state supported and sanctioned. They have been secularized and made obedient to the state. Strict adherence to Biblical principles invites state censure and may subject both disobedient pastors and lay people to fines and incarceration. The countries have been mongrelized by loose and liberal immigrations policies. Individualism is rapidly disappearing and the people have become morally unprincipled in regard to deviant lifestyles and an acceptability of the deviation from what is normal and upright. The United States lags behind, thus far, in the transition to a pre-new world order status, but just barely.

An observation of the progress made by the internationalists in the U.S. gives cause for great concern; in fact great panic would be a better term. The new world agents have made a monumental progress in the conditioning of the people to accept the tenants of the rapidly evolving one-world order. Socially engineered programs on all levels of society have succeeded in corrupting the morals of the people and making them dependent upon the state, almost all are dependent on one or more government entitlements. The use of the world entitlement of course is one of those new age innovations that leads people to believe that they have a legitimate claim to the handout, rather than actually understanding that they are the recipient of a government dole, which can be terminated at any time should the government desire to discipline them for waywardness from bureaucratic mandates regulating their activities. Hedonism prevails and money and the good life are worshipped, in this regard the people of the United States have a functional equality with their European counterparts.

This mind-set and the ever-increasing deterioration of the morals and character of the people is propagated and perpetuated by the public school systems. The children are indoctrinated with inimical social values that deliberately blur the lines between right and wrong and between acceptable and unacceptable behavior. The new political correctness has greatly exacerbated the sickness that is upon the nation. The teaching of tolerance of deviant practices both sexually and in regard to family and personal relationships has impacted deeply the moral fiber of the younger generation. The morals and language of our children today would make a sailor of my generation blush.

The truth is not taught in our schools, neither about values nor about our history and our heritage. The truth is not a friendly asset to the international agents for the satanic move to a new world order. Lies and fabrications better suit their purpose. Sharp and discerning minds are their enemy; mushy minds are their ally in their drive for world control.

In the last two decades the drive for the inclusion of the United States into a new world order has been exponentially accelerated by the fact that the people have unwisely elected to high government offices many agents of the new order. They now proliferate the ranks of government on both the administrative and bureaucratic levels. Foremost and most prominent and destructive of this number is the president, George Walker Bush, of the Order of the Skull and Bones.

Mr. Bush who came to office by masquerading as a believing Christian has done more to further the cause of the new world order in the United States than any of his predecessors in office. His every move is calculated to facilitate the inclusion of the United States into the rapidly evolving worldwide system. His policy of encouraging the elemental march toward world government has been devastating to the sovereignty of the people and has moved the U.S. from Constitutional governance to a socialistic despotic rule. He wars indiscriminately and without proper congressional approval, and he is fond of characterizing his wars as “wars for independence” A clever little invention of his speech writers. His wars are for the “sameness” required by the internationalists. It is a drive to submerge the national identities of the nations and to promote allegiance to a world government. His constant blathering about democracy and the promotion of democracy is simply a subterfuge and a cover-up for a militarized drive to conquer those who stray from the desires of the one world elites. That he studiously avoids characterizing the United States as a Constitutional Republic is not without meaning.

George Bush, with the approval of an equally culpable congress, has by calculation and guile followed the European example by mongrelizing the nation and bastardizing society. His deliberate sanctioning of the importation of twenty-one million low functioning illegal aliens and his surreptitious negotiations for a North American Union on the model of the new European Union, illustrates the fact that he serves a master other than the people of the United States.

We have come to a crux in our history. We have one foot in the manure pile, and the other is soon to follow for total involvement. We have no tomorrows, we have only today. We must move now to cripple the momentum of the new world agents, and if we do not we will be witness to the rollover of this nation to a numbing freedom destroying society of the devil’s design. Given the indifference and spiritlessness of the people today, I suspect that this is our destiny.

Taking Back The Country


Taking Back The Country


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ June 13, 2007


“We do not come as aggressors. Our war is not a war of conquest; we are fighting in the defense of our homes, our families, and posterity. We have petitioned, and our petitions have been scorned; we have entreated, and our entreaties have been disregarded; we have begged, and they have mocked… We beg no longer; we entreat no more; we petition no more. We defy them!” –Williams Jennings Bryan

Those who are aware of history will undoubtedly know of the startling similarities of the policies of a National Socialist Germany, just prior to the time of world war two, and the current policies of the United States. Those who are so unfortunate as to have obtained their education in one of the many woeful schools of our national public educational system today would be well served to pick up a history book, if one can be found that hasn’t been revised to reflect the politically correct garbage presently being force fed to our students, and acquaint themselves with the historical political events of the Third Reich, which eventually led to the destruction of Germany, and which bear a remarkable resemblance to the political agenda being played out by our government today.

Dictatorships don’t just happen; they are a product of several elemental constituents. The first necessary constituent in the making of a totalitarian dictatorship is for a megalomaniacal power seeking political activist to be ushered onto the political scene. Often times these mortals will, at first blush, appear to be no more than patriotic individuals with a sincere desire to lead their country to a state of ideal perfection. These are usually charismatic and often have, but not always, well developed communication skills. Some are savants and others are moronically inclined, but all possess that extreme egotistical mindset that makes them believe that they, and they alone, are destined to be the saviors of their nation, and ultimately of the world.

One that I know of started as a politician whose only claim to fame was that he possessed a family political clout that enabled him to steal an election. I believe that you can see where I am headed with this. And some came to power through brilliant political connivance, such as was employed by Adolph Hitler. And at least one of these individuals possesses a pathological belief that he is an agent of God, and that God works through him. And now I know that you know exactly where I am going with this article.

A second constituent of the making of a dictatorship is the early capturing, by an incipient dictator, of a high approval and zealous affirmation of his leadership by the people. Historically this has been almost always the case unless it was a military coup that brought a dictator to power. It is this ill-conceived approbation that allows an emerging dictator to rally exponents and to consolidate his over reaching political hold on a country by securing legislated powers, which enable him to override the normal checks and balances on his prerogatives.

That we, in the Unites States, are on the cusp of a transformation to an absolute socialistic totalitarian system cannot be denied. We have a president who has successfully seized the means to force his will upon the people, and he has been aided and abetted in this cause by the congress. He is presently fighting an unconstitutional war, also with the acquiescence of the congress, and he has effectively captured the power to seriously abridge many of the amendments to the Constitution. He has the authority, again granted by congress, to prevail upon the personal privacy of the people, and to spy upon them at will. And he unilaterally negotiates treaties and agreements with foreign nations, for which he extorts acceptance by the congress after the fact. As was the case with Herr Hitler after he seized control, President George W. Bush is no longer just a tin pot small potatoes politico. By every measure he is a dictator who needs to be stopped from his unconstitutional excesses, and stopped quickly.

One would think that President Bush had at some time in his life studied the tactics of the German dictator since he has employed very effectively these very same maneuvers in his pursuit of complete control of the domestic scene and in his application of an aggressive belligerence on the international front. Citing internal security the German dictator moved early on to suspend the rights and liberties of the people. He suspended Sections 114, 115, 117, 118, 123, 124, and 153 of the Constitution of the German Reich until further notice, i.e. temporarily. Thus, all of the rights on personal liberty including the right of free expression of opinion, the right of assembly and the right of association were nullified, while at the same time the power to violate the privacy of postal, telegraphic, and telephonic communications, and the power to evade legal requirements for the acquisition of warrants for house-searches, orders for confiscation and restrictions on property, were seized by the government.

The decree, which allowed this government incursion upon the people, was supposed to be temporary, but in fact it was never rescinded even unto the end of the war. U.S. citizens would do well to remember this when they are told that similar suspensions of their constitutional rights are temporary and are being instituted for the security of the nation.

On the international front old Adolph had no equal in his quest for dominance over other nations. By asserting a right to self-protection from fictitious aggressors and by claiming, with feigned outrage, various manufactured affronts to German sovereignty the bellicose dictator lied and bullied his way through a number of encroachments upon hapless nations that were unfortunate enough to have captured his attention. The only innovation that he never tried was an assertion of the right to democratize other nations by war; he most likely would have been very envious of the inventiveness of George Bush in that regard. By maintaining that the German nation was only re-claiming land that had been wrested from it by neighboring countries, and by demanding the right to protect the interests of citizens of other nations who were of German ethnicity the fuehrer maneuvered his way though one conflict after another in his predatory pursuit of seizing the land and natural resources of other nations. Buoyed by his conquests and elated over his successes he soon over reached in his nefarious pursuits and landed the nation, and the people thereof, in a monumental world war. Let’s look at some similarities here in regard to a like belligerence by President George W. Bush.

Claiming that Iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction the president maneuvered a malleable congress into an approval for a military attack. His congressionally approved attack in March of 2003 was merely an escalation, or extension, of a war already in progress. For months prior to the official start of the war the United States and the United Kingdom had been carrying out air raids upon Iraq. Thousands of sorties were flown against various military targets in that country. In reality Saddam’s military had been reduced to impotency prior to the official institution of hostilities in March of 2003. The Bush administration had been hoping that these air attacks would provoke Saddam into irrational retaliatory measures, such as missile launches similar to those carried out in the previous Kuwaiti conflict.

When this hoped for reaction by Saddam didn’t materialize, the president was forced to resort to subterfuge to gain approval for an attack upon Iraq. The president, aided by the media, rode a phantom WMD fairy tale to a congressional approval for his war of aggression. It was gunboat diplomacy at its best. President Bush and associates would have us believe that the fact the Iraq is a strategically placed middle-eastern country with great water resources and a coastline to the Persian Gulf, and that it possesses 112 billion barrels of proven oil is of no consequence and had no bearing at all on the decision to launch an all-out military assault on the country. That we still have gullible people who believe the weapons of mass destruction fabrication absolutely begs credulity.

No dictator can seize power and maintain control over a country without the support of subordinate, or lesser, despots. Hitler had Hermann Goering, Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler and others, and George Bush has Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales, et al. Even so the sustaining of power by Adolph Hitler would not have been possible without a corrupt judiciary and an enforcement apparatus with which to enforce the dictatorial decrees of the regime upon the people. In order for totalitarianism to flourish society must cease to be based upon law. It is necessary that the law be what subjective activist judges say that it is, and not be predicated upon immutable principles. There must be no independency of law against the wishes of the ruling regime. In June of 1936 for the first time in German history a unified police system was established for the whole of the nation. Whereas the police had previously been organized separately by state and by local government, all were now amalgamated into a single system under the control of the Third Reich.

The foregoing facts should cause the hair to rise on the back of the necks of those reading this article. Evidence abounds that the very same forces and maneuvers described heretofore are being brought into play by the present administration. The judiciary has largely departed from the rule of law and the decisions of the judges thereof are subjective and predicated not upon immutable principles, but upon personal whims and caprices. Likewise we are witnessing an increasing militarizing of the police agencies in the country. The new Homeland Security agency provides a nucleus for the same type of unified police system that was instituted in Germany under Hitler.

Our personal choices are being exterminated by a tyrannical bureaucracy, which forces upon us thousands of freedom robbing decrees. In short we are well along the road to total domination by a force very nearly like that, which confronted the German people during the time of Adolph Hitler. And if we don’t do something about it and do it quickly we are very apt to wake up one day to find that we have been dragged into an historic conflict of an infinitely greater magnitude than that, which confronted the German people during world war two.

Treason – The Suborning of Presidential Treason by A Derelict Congress


The Suborning of Presidential Treason
by A Derelict Congress


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ June 04, 2007


“The laws should be rigidly enforced which prohibit the immigration of a servile class to compete with American labor, with no intention of acquiring citizenship, and bringing with them and retaining habits and customs repugnant to our civilization.” – Grover Cleveland – First Inaugural Address – Wednesday, March 4, 1885

The substantial number of messages sent by readers of my article, “It’s Time To Standup – Put Up – Or Shutup” was both unanticipated and telling. It pointed up a rapidly building and simmering resentment and anger in regard to 1. The impact of illegal aliens upon the nation, and 2. the encouragement of the illegal entry of huge numbers of aliens by George Walker Bush and a congress that aids and abets his treasonous activities. The delivering of the country, on the domestic front, to the destructive forces of a continuing and deadly invasion of illegal aliens and the equally deadly pursuit of a resource wasting belligerence on the international level has set the stage for an unprecedented conflict between the people of the nation and the government that ignores their concerns in regard to these issues.

Mr. Bush follows the dictates of the corporatists and ignores the wishes of the people, and in connivance with a delinquent congress he has succeeded in pushing the people to their limit by aggressively agitating for open borders, unabated immigration, and a North American Union. The fact is that both he and the congress have succeeded only in removing from among the people any commitment, or persuasion, for even legal immigration. The oft quoted and written sentiment, by maudlin advocates for unrestricted immigration and amnesty for law-breaking illegal aliens, of send us your tired, poor, and huddled masses is falling on deaf ears and blind eyes.. This is not the nineteenth century, and we have no dearth of people.

Thanks to the illogical and stupid thinking on immigration by our so-called political leaders we are experiencing a totally unnecessary population explosion that has severely and negatively impacted the quality of life for the people of this nation.

The people, who foot the bill for the tremendous waste of our resources by Mr. Bush and company, are showing an increasing intolerance for the international intrigues of the president, and they feel no obligation to fund the welfare for illegal aliens, provide free medical care for the same, or to educate their children. Too many legitimate U.S. citizens are being bankrupted by the astronomical cost of medical care, the rampant inflation, and the explosive out of control educational costs in this country to entertain any inclination to support the welfare of law-breaking illegal aliens. The welcome mat is not just wearing thin, it is entirely worn through.

If my mail is any indication illegal aliens are persona non grata even with a great many of our U.S. citizens of Latin American heritage. The president has managed to further irritate an already peeved public by proclaiming that those who are opposed to the pending sell-out to amnesty and the legalization of law-breaking aliens in the senate, “Don’t want what is right for America.” Sometimes the ignorance of the man and his arrogance amazes me. And I am finding out that a great majority in this country are similarly fed up to the ears with the president’s overbearing and condescending political assertions, and his unbridled control of the nation’s course.

Readers from across the nation wrote to register their frustration with the impact that the inflow of hoards of illegal aliens has wrought in regard to their personal lives and the lives of their families. But, it was those from the Southwestern states, particularly Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and California, who were most outspoken in their comment. The people in these states are, in reality, virtual hostages of illegal aliens, and to say that they are angry is an understatement. The deference by the government for interloping aliens over American citizens has infuriated those who have had their communities and their neighborhoods transformed into bastions of unfriendly, mostly Mexican, aliens. These have hijacked their neighborhoods, increased their local taxes, overloaded their schools and hospitals, and debased their culture. The many letters that I received from readers in these states were uncannily alike. Following are several examples:

“When I moved here (to Nevada) about 12 years ago, my neighborhood was equally balanced by race, now it is 95% Hispanic The prevalent language is Latin American. Most of the Hispanic neighbors have 5 or more cars parked on their front lawn or have taken all of the parking spaces in front of the homes of other residents, and they party all night every Saturday in their garages on their driveways. In the public schools many of the schoolbooks have been edited to pander to the Hispanics. Press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish, what bullshit! And now with the North American Union and the Super highway from Mexico-thru-America-to-Canada, and the planning for an Amero currency, things are looking gray.”

And

“Things have gotten so out of hand today and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m afraid of what the next day will bring. Virtually all of our freedoms are being taken away, THEY want to now tag us like cattle, we’ve got millions of illegals marching in our streets demanding their “rights” (their rights are back in their own country), our Border Patrol Agents are in prison for doing their very dangerous jobs, the NAU, etc, etc, etc. It’s my idea of waking up in “The Twilight Zone”. What used to be considered wrong is now “right”, what was unacceptable is now acceptable. The President of “our” country is evil and has no scruples whatsoever. As far as I can ascertain, he’s driven by greed and the lust for power and control. It’s all so heartbreaking; so very hard to accept.”

There is an increasing loathing of George Bush, and it is a product of his own making. The comments of readers, in regard to the president, were scathing and searing. The animosity runs deep. His swaggering bluster, his disdain for constitutional principles, his monomaniacal mindset in regard to the nationally debilitating war in Iraq, and his never-ending sneaky endeavors for a North American Union and a new world order have made him the object of a deep and abiding resentment by a majority of U.S citizens. Even an incompetent and gratingly patronizing Jimmy Carter did not descend to the level of public condemnation that George W. Bush has achieved during his tenure.

The return to power of the Democrats, granted by the voters in the last congressional election, was not an endorsement of their liberal politics, nor was it an abandonment of conservative principles. It was, in fact, a desperate attempt to curb the dictatorial aspirations of a megalomaniac by removing those Republicans in congress who were, in deference to party loyalty, enabling him in his excesses. The voters gambled that the Democrats, out of vindictiveness and spitefulness, would deny the president his authoritarian overreach for undivided power, and that they would abridge his devastating policies both domestically and internationally. It didn’t work; the Democrats are in complete agreement with the socialistic endeavors of George W. Bush, and they are colluding with him in his quest for wide-open immigration.

They are so lockstep with the president that they, after some transparent self-serving verbiage regarding their opposition to the war, have sanctioned continued funding for his unconstitutional war. The voters have learned a hard lesson, and they are paying a high price for this miscalculation and their lapse of judgment. We can only hope that it is not too late to rectify this mistake and repair the monumental damage that has been done to the country.

It’s Time To Stand Up – Put Up – Or Shut Up


It’s Time To Stand Up – Put Up – Or Shut Up


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ May 25, 2007


House minority leader, John Boehner, who is known for his candor, expressed his feelings on the immigration amnesty and corporate welfare bill that is currently being debated in the Senate by calling the bill a piece of crap. Actually Mr. Boehner expressed himself in more eloquently blunt terms, but in deference to the tender sensibilities of those who are easily offended by blunt language I have altered the congressman’s words a bit. So we’ll just say that the subject of the “piece of” that the congressman referred to rhymes with “wit.” In actual fact the congressman could have used any number of euphemisms or politically correct words to express his disdain for this treasonous legislation, but apparently to his way of thinking a piece of, uh, crap by any other name is still just a piece of crap.

Too be sure the congressman will come under fire from the mealy-mouthed apologists for the disastrous policies of George W. Bush and his administration and those communist congressional lackeys who do the administration’s bidding in regard to the sellout of the country to the interests of the corporatists. We’re talking here about the same corporatists who have used their ownership of the politicians to completely destroy the nation’s industrial base, and to alter irrevocably the job market to make it infinitely more hostile to American workers and immeasurably more favorable to illegal aliens and the industrial workers of other nations.

If there are still those among us who are unaware that this country is under siege and on the doorstep of an absolute desolation wrought by the presence of twenty plus million illegal aliens who have unlawfully and surreptitiously infiltrated the borders that have deliberately been made porous and easily breeched by Mr. Bush and his treacherous henchmen in and out of congress, it must be that they are either mentally vacuous or socially isolated. The bill referred to heretofore will accelerate to full-speed a precipitous slide to the ultimate demise of our culture; the complete destruction of the already crumbling schools and hospitals in the nation and the complete obliteration of an already rapidly dwindling middle-class that pays the taxes that supports these freeloaders, will also be accelerated with deadly potential.

Iowa Congressman Steve King has likened the bill to a “hand grenade” that the Senate will likely pass before the Memorial Day break and toss back to the House as the senators “run for the hills” in their home states. Congressman King very accurately lays the blame for such treachery where it belongs. “The people on the left embrace Marxism,” King said. “Everyone on the Democrat side of the judiciary committee is embracing [this] plan. That tells me that I’m not wrong if I oppose it.” The only thing that Congressman King failed to mention is the fact that it is the George W. Bush Republican administration that is urging these Marxists on in this egregious betrayal of the people of this nation.

The amendments votes and the debate on this “piece of crap” have shown that almost the entire senate is out of step with the will of the people. Individual senators, Democrat and Republican alike, cavalierly ignore the fact that eighty-six percent of the people object strenuously to this bill, or any other bill that resembles it. The congress, both the house and the senate, have picked up on the fact that the people are fickle and forgetful. They know also that the people have no way to remove them from office, other than to vote them out, and in the case of the senate six years between elections is a long time.

The fact that their execrable actions actually constitute malfeasance in office is also meaningless, as they have been granted the enviable status of being subject to no other enforcement against treasonous and criminal conduct other than that of policing themselves. A fat lot of good that does when a majority are involved in the same reprehensible conduct in regard to the sellout of the people and the cave-in to the corporate money mongers. They certainly are not going to convict themselves of malfeasance; it is like asking criminal cliques such as the mafia and the hell’s angels to police themselves. When the people are too feeble-minded to remember the treacherous conduct of their elected senators, their congressmen, or their presidents from one election to the next it sets the stage for a tyrannical freedom repressing government such as we presently have.

The people in this country have every right to rebel. Unfortunately at this stage in our existence a real in the streets revolution is not the answer. In fact it would play into the hands of the tyrants who have seized the power to rule over us like monarchs and dictators. Old King George and confederates would just avail themselves of the dictatorial powers that they have, with the aid of the congress, seized, and declare martial law and finish off what little is left of the Constitutional Republic. An active revolution brought our Constitutional Republic into existence, but at this stage in our history the same would most certainly finish off the pitiful remains of that Republic.

A passive, or non-violent, rebellion is quite another matter. The people have the power; they just do not realize it. If millions of people would unite and throw off the shackles that bind them to a despotic system they could take back control of the government and enjoy a concomitant restoration of their freedoms. If citizens in numbers too great for the government to prosecute would refuse to comply with the many thousands of laws, rules, and regulations that are not supported by the Constitution the pathetic and petty tyrants who populate the government would soon be shaking in their boots. If millions would defy the bureaucratic administrative rules that they have been erroneously led to believe have the force of law, it would shake the government to its foundation. The fact is that these tin pot despots are able to sustain their unconstitutional control only because a majority of the people have enabled them by willingly and voluntarily complying with untold thousands of edicts that have been snatched out of the air and have no foundation in the Constitution.

Like blind sheep the majority in this country file tax returns, willingly allow the withholding of monies from their pay, allow the government to regulate that which is in the realm of personal choice, and capitulate to untold thousands of bureaucratic licensing requirements in regard to their vocations, their property, and their families. In short they allow themselves to be regulated from the cradle to the grave. This compliant majority most certainly enables the government to persecute, prosecute, and incarcerate the few who do have the courage to stand up against the tyranny of the government and the government’s unconstitutional laws. Before I receive a ton of emails asking if I in fact do not comply with these unconstitutional laws, let me just say that I do not want to be among the few who are picked off and railroaded into prison. When I see a real commitment by a very significant number of citizens, I’ll jump on the bandwagon. There is strength in numbers, and significant numbers is what it will take to take back the powers that have been stolen from the people.

We have witnessed in the past few months millions of alien law-breakers demonstrating in our streets and parks across the nation. And they have done so with the blessings of a government, which refuses to hold them accountable for their illegality. It is time; no it is way past time for the real citizens of this country to do some demonstrating of their own. Now is the time for a peaceful, non-violent, stand up for freedom and personal liberties, and for a stand against a non-constitutional confrontational government. Real Americans need to pack the council meetings, county board meetings, legislative chambers and general assemblies across the nation, where they should speak loudly, insistently and continually for a restoration of a government for and of the people.

The nation belongs to the people, not to a coterie of piddling politicians and corporate bigwigs. It is the “legal” citizens who are supposed to be the government, and it is way past time that they take back the power that has been seized from them by petty thieves who believe themselves to be possessed of dictatorial powers by a divine right. And if they do not stand, and if they do not take back the power of the people that has been usurped by a run-a-way government, they deserve the fate that awaits them. In short, it is time to stand up, put up, or shut up.

Values – Presidential Candidates Depreciating Personal Values For Maximum Political Gain


Presidential Candidates Depreciating
Personal Values For Maximum Political Gain


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ May 16, 2007


The defining moment of the recent Republican candidate debate was, at least to me, when the following question was put to John McCain by Chris Matthews, quite evidently without any forewarning, “Do you believe in evolution?” It was as if time stopped, and in that brief instant before it resumed one could plainly discern that thoughts were racing through the heads of the candidates. And one could almost, by watching facial expressions and body language, read those thoughts. The candidates on stage with McCain were mentally giving thanks that they had not been singled out for such a question out of the blue, and hoping that they would be spared in the follow-up. The poignancy of the moment was stunning.

The look on Mr. McCain’s face was worth the price of admission to the event, if in fact payment for admission was required. It was the look of a deer caught in the headlights of an onrushing truck on a busy highway. In that brief instant John McCain was contemplating his political future. He had to decide, and do it quickly, if he in fact believed in God, or if he did not. Would it benefit him politically to stand up for God and stand down to the half-baked theories of men, or could he gain more momentum by standing down for God and embracing the mumbo-jumbo of Darwinism? You do have to give it to old John; he made no bones about the fact that his lust for the office of president far outweighed his love of God. With very little thought, other than a very slight, but perceptible, hesitation he denied before the entire world any faith in Almighty God, the creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is in and upon the same. Wow! Is all that I can say.

The next time that John McCain uses the name of God in a speech, an address, an announcement, an ad or a phony public prayer to ingratiate himself with voters, we will know him for the hypocrite that he is. Apparently it was Darwin and his cockroach theory that sustained John through his captivity in Viet Nam. God had nothing to do with it.

At this point John added a little preachifying to the occasion. He, realizing the magnitude of the blockbuster that he had just delivered, followed up with an ingratiatingly and patently phony little homily on how much he appreciated nature and enjoyed communing with the great outdoors. It was almost as if when he engaged his mouth he could just not put the brakes on his tongue. Which nature were you talking about, John? The one created by an accidental non-directed cosmic explosion, which sprayed terrestrial bodies into precisely located, but unplanned, positions, orbits, rotations, and speeds for complete harmony and equilibrium? Ah, yes, it has to be that man-made version of the birth of the universe because you just told the world that you do not believe in a God of Creation.

Meanwhile back to the stage of pain, where we have a bevy of candidates, who might otherwise be enjoying John’s discomfiture, but who are instead anxiously contemplating their turn at the hands of the same Matthews who had just nailed John’s feet to the floor with his question. All are hoping that inquisitor Matthews had been satiated by the affects of the clever trap that he had sprung upon John McCain, a trap that exposed the true nature of John McCain to the world. But just when it appeared that the rest might escape having to put up or shut up the rug was pulled from beneath them when another moderator opened the question up to the group by asking all those on the stage who disbelieved in evolution to raise their hand.

The boys responded with comedic jerkiness, for an instant it was as though I was watching an out of time vintage movie. With furtive glances at their compatriots they responded less than enthusiastically. Three raised their hand rather hesitantly like a schoolboy who doesn’t know if he is doing the right thing or not by volunteering to answer a teacher’s classroom question. To their credit Sam Brownback, Tom Tan Credo, and Mike Huckabee affirmed their disbelief in evolution by the raising of their hand. The next day Huckabee called a news conference and desperately tried to back off of his commitment by complaining about the fairness of the question and it’s pertinence to the presidency, saying that if he were to be elected president he would continue to encourage the teaching of evolution in public schools and that he would make it illegal to teach Biblical creation in the same. So, we now know that Mr. Huckabee lied when he raised his hand, but this is typical of most politicians, most are inveterate liars. Mr. Tan Credo and Mr. Brownback, to their credit, did not backtrack. The rest of the candidates shuffled their feet and dragged their knuckles rather than respond one way or another.

The fact is that such a question at a Democratic debate would go over in humdrum fashion. The national media naturally assumes that all Democrats are devoid of any commitment to Biblical principles. But, since they believe that some Republicans may still secretly embrace Biblically espoused values, such must be exposed as heretics to secular progressiveness. If every one of the Republican candidates that night had flunked this liberal media test, they could have concluded the debate with honor.

Throughout the Internet in the days following the debate the entire godless secular community squealed and howled like banshee monkeys. Their vitriol and their language were atrocious and their shrill invective was exceeded only by their monumental ignorance and stupidity. They were absolutely enraged that the “majority” of the ten Republican candidates had the audacity to disbelieve evolution. That they believe three out of ten to be a majority points up their mathematical prowess and makes me better understand why Mexican aliens are brought in to take their jobs. Every time one makes a case that evolution is specious the secularists go spastic and throw themselves upon the compost pile to prove that they are the living descendants of reptiles and anthropoids. They may look like apes, they may act like apes, they may even smell like apes, but they are not apes. Nor are they descended from Apes. They are human beings descended from Adam, and they are, if they don’t change their ways, going to spend eternity contemplating their rejection of the Living God.

Paramilitary – The Transforming Of Civilian Police Agencies Into Paramilitary Organizations


The Transforming of Civilian Police
Agencies Into Paramilitary Organizations


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ May 8, 2007


I truly value the mail that I receive from the old timers of law enforcement; they are a unique group of individuals. I used to love the profession and the people in it. When I entered into the profession 48 years ago it was a long suffering and put upon fraternity. The pay was rotten, the benefits nil, and appreciation seemed to be non-existent. Yet the people who filled the ranks were more dedicated and professional at that time than any other group of people in this nation.

Unfortunately I was a witness to a steady and progressive decline in the profession during the years that I was active in the law enforcement community. Ironically as the pay, benefits and other perks increased the professionalism seemed to decrease proportionally. And it seemed that every individual overblown local politician wanted a piece of the control over the internal affairs of the law enforcement agencies within their districts. And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, civilian review boards and civil service boards came into being, and somewhat later there were unions to contend with. Then the government with its LEAA grants came upon the scene and law enforcement administrators gave away what little remained of their control of their agencies to the feds in exchange for the funds that tight fisted local politicos had, through the years, consistently and steadfastly refused to adequately provide.

Next, police professionals with law enforcement savvy who had progressed through the ranks were being passed over for administrative jobs, and agency or department heads were being selected by search committees, city councils and city administrators from college graduates with business or administration degrees. These over-educated and experience deficient administrators had no feel for the profession and not an ounce of the common sense and wisdom that police regulars acquire through long-time service. They were simply bean counters that ingratiated themselves with the local politicians by kissing their behinds. These new honchos hired grant writers and other civilians to go after more federal money, and thereby assured that their agencies would be forever bound to a dictatorial federal control. What they could and could not do in regard to hiring and firing, setting internal policies, and a host of other heretofore-autonomous prerogatives was now regulated by the fine print in the federal contracts that had been accepted in order to receive federal funding. The contracts were long term and binding, there was no backing out unless local governments were willing to pay back huge sums of money, and they were not so disposed or inclined.

Whereas a job well done by competent professionals used to be the best public relations tool that the law enforcement fraternity possessed, the new yuppie commanders now felt the need to implement public relations programs to sell their agencies to the public. Soon we had Officer Friendlys, McGruffs and Crime Pups everywhere. Community relation’s officers met with various civic and social groups to establish a warm and fuzzy feeling between law enforcement and the community. There were also programs to stroke the media. News conferences were regularly scheduled to share sensitive information on departmental activities. Soon it was necessary to satiate a newfound public desire for a blow-by-blow account of agency investigations and other activities. Ingratiating the agency with the media seemed to be more important than acquiring public backing by dedicated professional work. It used to be that actions spoke louder than words, but that seems to be no longer the case. And of course this was also another way to tap into federal money, and get back some of the taxes that had been forcibly extracted from local taxpayers. The feds were more than willing to pony up more of the taxpayers’ own money to support these public relations programs and to firm up their takeover of the heretofore exclusive rights of local law enforcement agencies.

The local politicians, who had control over law enforcement agency budgets, were becoming aware of these so called new found revenues and began salivating like Pavlov’s dogs at the thought of tapping into the federal largesse of taxpayer monies. Soon law enforcement agencies, large and small, were crowding around the federal trough like hogs on a feeding frenzy. Local politicians made the acquisition of law enforcement grant monies a quest. Sheriff’s and chiefs were pressured to bring in more and more federal dollars. If they were reluctant the politicians put the pressure on them by campaigning against them in local elections by suggesting that they were responsible for heavy local taxation by not bellying up to the federal trough. The people who are always, it seems, gullible when it come to taxes, ate it up. I doubt that they ever gave a thought to the fact that the money came from their own pockets whether it was funneled through the feds or through the local government. The prevalent thought was hallelujah; we’re getting free money!

Since true police professionals were in many cases no longer in charge of law enforcement agencies, and given the fact that police administrators had been frozen out of the hiring and firing process by restrictive civil service statutes, civilian boards, union grievance policies, and the continual meddling of county boards, city councils, and city administrators there began to be a noticeable decline in the quality of many of the rank and file. Professionalism slipped perceptively. To many it was now simply a job and little thought was given to the principles that had been so important to the officers of the past. Officers punched in and punched out of their shifts like factory workers. Many others were disgusted with the change in the profession and simply left the ranks and found their way to other vocations. The pursuit of benefits, wages and early retirement programs occupied the minds of those who stayed. They were being converted to a blue-collar worker’s mentality, and they saw the old ethics and the dedication of their predecessors as being tantamount to slavery to the profession. To be absolutely fair I have to concede that some of the slippage was tied to the general deterioration of society itself and to the newfound commitment to moral relevancy in the nation. Whatever the case, law enforcement officers were now ripe for an indoctrination that would transform them into tools of the federal bureaucracy.

The truth is that peace officers in the old days did not need fancy public relations programs to gain the confidence of the people who they served. The people understood that they were there to help them and to stand for them against those who would do them harm. They instinctively knew by the demeanor of their peace officers that their sole desire was to ensure that others would not violate the person, the property or the families of those for whom they were responsible. Peace officers in those days wanted the people of their communities to be free from tyranny. The last thing on their mind was to enforce tyranny upon the people whose interests they represented. They were of the people and for the people. We have come a million miles from those days and all of it in the wrong direction.

Rather than acting as servants of the people too many law enforcement officers in this day and age have become willing tools of a system that despotically oppresses freedom, and forces upon the people thousands of dictatorial decrees. The government bureaucracy that has seized absolute power in the country has also seized control of the law enforcement agencies of the land. And the rank and file thereof is used as soldier enforcers much in the way that the mafia used its soldiers to enforce the tyrannies of that order, coldly, cruelly, without conscience and with an iron fist. Law enforcement agencies all too often now employ brutal tactics in their service to the state. Please notice that I said service to the state, law enforcement officers no longer serve the people. Read on for an example of the corruption of a once fine fraternity.

In November a medically discharged United States Marine, Sergeant Derek Hale, was cold bloodedly murdered by a police undercover squad in Wilmington Delaware. The decorated veteran had traveled to Wilmington to participate in a Toys For Tots event, and while in the city he was also doing a favor for a friend by house sitting. He was thus involved and sitting on the front stoop minding his own business when a police death squad screeched up and in proper Gestapo fashion first tortured him mercilessly with multiple hits from a taser gun as he tried desperately to comply with shouted commands to put up his hands, and then executed him by pumping three .40 caliber bullets point blank into his chest. In a matter of minutes an unarmed man, who had committed no crime and who had served his country honorably in wartime, lay dead. Killed not by an enemy combatant but by a domestic death squad comprised of law enforcement officers who were carrying out the dictates of a totally depraved system. In order to understand the absolute viciousness and inhumanity of these police agents I urge readers to use the link provided for the full story. Death Squad in Delaware.

Recently, Greg Evensen, a NewsWithViews.com columnist has written an article Will you Stand, Fight, Hide or Surrender? In which, he candidly and accurately describes the utterly putrid state of the nation and the lateness of the hour. Greg is offering solutions. Something that we see very little of in our wanders through the many written articles in regard to the present corruptness of the nation.

We have a situation from which extrication is difficult. It will take courage, and Greg has courage. I have not met Greg personally, but I have corresponded with him a number of times. He is a former peace officer, and one of the old timers that I wrote about at the beginning of this article. He is a believing Christian, and we are friends and fellow travelers.

Mass Murder – Critiquing Mass Murder After The Fact


Critiquing Mass Murder After The Fact


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ April 27, 2007


The Virginia Tech massacre continues to fill the airwaves as law enforcement commanders boast of their progress in an investigation of the events after the fact. Other than to confirm the fact that a sociopath had single-handedly and cold-bloodedly executed thirty-two people and shot and wounded fifteen more over a time span of two and one-half hours, and that the slaughter took place under their very noses what else needs to be said. I strongly suspect that the Virginia Tech hierarchy and the local law enforcement agents will attempt to submerge the glaring inadequacies of the system and their incompetence with a barrage of trivial observations as to peripheral circumstances in order to avoid having to explain how a maniacal lone gunman could stalk the campus like a grim reaper for two and one-half hours and not be either detected or confronted. That there was no warning to the residents of the campus from the time of the initial involvement of the campus police at the front end of the two and a half-hour killing spree begs credulity.

I, for one, am tired of hearing the TV announcements of their magnificent progress in the investigation and of the many man-hours of work involved. This is what they get paid for. It used to be that law enforcement professionals did such without compensation, and without bragging. You can bet that the public is paying for a ton of overtime for this supposed selfless sacrifice.

True to form the liberal media, a bevy of half-baked liberal opinion writers, some loud-mouthed TV and entertainment personalities and many of our freedom killing politicians are clamoring for gun control. Don’t you just marvel at the chutzpah of these half-wits? We are observing first hand the results of the failed policies of the Virginia Tech administration that disarmed all of the residents and visitors to the campus and deprived them of any mechanism of self-defense, and these idiots want to condemn millions more in the nation to the same fate that befell these forty-seven unfortunate victims. It is almost as if ignorance and stupidity are contagious, and that we are suffering though an extended epidemic of the same. Through the years we the people have allowed this kind to dismantle the bill of rights, thwart true justice, vilify promoters of individual freedoms, promote the murder of innocent babies and demolish the peoples’ sovereignty, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest their armpits.

We have suffered through too many of these murderous rampages to not learn a lesson from such. Either our law enforcement leaders and our administrative geniuses are hard learners or they are hardheaded and have no capacity for scholarship. When they die they ought to be buried with their head above ground because it’s more durable than a tombstone.

Rumors abound that the local law enforcement commanders were ordered by federal bureaucratic agencies to stand down until their agents arrived on scene to assume control over the situation. After forty-three years in law enforcement nothing comes to mind in regard to the feds being able to force a local law enforcement agency to stand down in the face of a great threat to the lives of the people in that agency’s jurisdiction. This rumor, which is supposed to have emanated from anonymous phone calls from personnel of the agencies involved, would seem to be a convenient way for the campus police chief and others to deflect criticism of their do nothing tactics by blaming the feds. I would tend to think that if there was a failure to respond quickly and effectively it was due to some stupid protocol that was drafted by “proactive” administrators.

During my latter years in office, during a time when law enforcement had already been afflicted by the same stupidity that afflicts our other government entities, it was chic to draft proactive procedures manuals. The new and enlightened modernists embraced the program like it was a gift from above. Soon they were falling all over themselves to write protocol to deal with all kinds of hypothetical situations. It never occurred to these dim bulbs that one couldn’t project the myriad of circumstances that might be a part of the next crisis that confronted them. Common sense, a commodity in short supply in our society today, dictates that it is expedient to respond to the situation at hand and quickly decide how to deal with the circumstances of the situation. In other words one must react to what confronts him, rather than blindly follow words in a manual, which were written in advance of a given predicament.

The following comes from a story related to the attendees of a conference on Forensic Pathology, which I attended many years ago. Doctor Davis the Chief Medical Examiner of Dade County, Florida was one of the featured speakers, a realistic curmudgeon who was blessed with common sense that came from a ton of forensic experience. The good doctor told of the events surrounding the crash of an airliner in the middle of the everglades, which strewed bodies, body parts, personal affects and wreckage over a wide area. As Dr. Davis related it, and to the best of my recollection, when he arrived on the scene to coordinate the efforts to identify the remains of well over one hundred passengers and crew, he went directly to the command center, which had been set up prior to his arrival.

When he entered the center he was confronted with a table upon which was piled hundreds of personal affects. Various articles of jewelry, wallets, purses, clothing and other articles, which could conceivably impart valuable information as to the identities of those who had perished in the crash, had been collected and brought to the center. When the doctor inquired about this he was informed that protocol required that in instances such as this that valuables must be collected and brought to a central place for safe keeping. It was almost fun to watch the doctor relate this story, his face reddened with the memory of such stupidity. In language, most colorful, he related that he had inquired how in the hell they going to be able to identify these crash victims now that all evidence of their identity had been removed. And just whom he wondered was going to steal these articles from the middle of one of the world’s greatest swamps. I have never forgotten this illustration of bureaucratic stupidity. That some officious and petty bureaucrat would write such a policy and that others would carry it out, under the circumstances, is testimony to the bureaucratic flight from sanity that confronts the hapless people of this nation. There seems to be no hope that we will ever see a return of the common sense of the good old days.

The simple fact is that the same idiot politicians and social reformists, who decry these awful acts, have paved the way for such lunatics to populate the country. They have dismantled a system that was put into place by men far wiser than they will ever have any hope of being. To be perfectly honest they are sophisticated morons. And they have so perverted the social scruples of the nation that there appears to be no way to overcome the monumental damage that has been done. I don’t even have to name them, every discerning American knows who they are.

That the majority in this country continues to put their faith in such really escapes my understanding. I know this, we haven’t seen the last of these horrific acts, and there will come a time in the very near future when it will be difficult to discern the difference between the criminals who prey upon us and the bureaucrats who do the same.

Blind Loyalty – The Danger of Blind Loyalty To Political Leaders


The Danger of Blind Loyalty
To Political Leaders


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ April 17, 2007


The following is a letter of a type that I often receive from the hard-line Bush supporters who believe that the president is anointed and should be beyond criticism in regard to his administrative policies:

“Just remember, all authority is set in place by God. God obviously set President Bush in a higher place of authority than a lowly sheriff, so when you speak of stupidity you might start your search closer to home (The people who elected a loud mouth liberal)”

The people who elected me to seven consecutive four-year terms in office, I think, would be rather amused at this characterization of me as a liberal. I would guess that it was just the dirtiest word that the writer could think of to describe one who has been critical of his hero, George Bush. Some strange thinking here, but fairly typical of the letters that I receive from those who think the president can walk on water and who believe that he functions as a potentate who is unconstrained by law and is immune, or should be, to criticism from lowly peons such as I.

Unfortunately for these people, I do not happen to subscribe to this type of hero worship. I think that Mr. Bush is an absolutely ordinary man who is possessed of no extraordinary perceptual abilities. If he is divinely guided it certainly has not been evident throughout the six years that he has been at the helm of the nation. Too be sure he has been immersed in some fairly rough waters during this time, most of which were of his own making. This is what often happens when one ignores the signs that indicate that an all-ahead full mode will sink the ship, and plows ahead anyway.

How some people have come into possession of the idea that Mr. Bush is clairvoyant and gifted with divine wisdom is anybody’s guess. Maybe they visited a guru on the mountain who imparted such knowledge to them. Whatever the case, it is a wrong assumption. That he has no such gift is indicated by his unwillingness to deviate from the disastrous policies, which have caused the nation to list so badly. All indications are that if he persists and stubbornly maintains the course that he has set, the ship, in this case the nation, will founder. Indeed the vessel wallows at the present time, and a sinking appears imminent.

Mr. Bush’s wars for democracy, and his impolitic pursuit of the same, are crumbling around our ears. If there has been good news on that front I haven’t seen it. Even Fox News hasn’t come forth with any gems of hope in that regard, and it certainly cannot be said that they are anti-Bush. There just isn’t anything to report other than more bombs, more sneaky guerilla warfare attacks, and more dead Americans. Not only does the president not have a crystal ball, which enables him to look into the future, he has no grasp of history. The Korean and Viet Nam wars are not that distant in the past, that he should be devoid of the knowledge that to fight limited wars on the enemy’s terms just is not the way to proceed. Apparently our political leaders are hard learners in this regard. If the death of the one hundred twelve thousand Americans killed in those wars did not provide an example of the kind of wars that we should avoid, there is no hope for us, because our politicians are either masochistic or they are just plain dumb.

Ah, some will say, but what about President Bush’s domestic policies? What about them? Have they been something to brag about? Those who think so apparently totally disregard his immigration policies and his absolute and unforgivable disregard for the security of our borders. A refusal to honor one’s oath to secure the borders of the nation against all invaders does not a hero make.

The president’s deliberate refusal to enforce border security bespeaks arrogance and his statement; “Hell, if they’ll cross the big bend, we want ‘em.” speaks to a simple mind. It is absolutely incredible that the leader of any country would utter such an asinine statement. It invites criminals, deviants, terrorists, subversives, sexual predators, and freeloaders to come into the nation and prey upon the citizenry. The fearful consequences of such an ignorant mindset have come home to roost.

The economic strain that has been placed upon the nation by an influx of twenty-one million uninvited and unwelcome parasites is enormous. And the social damage is incalculable. Our culture has been forever altered and perverted. Millions of ordinary American workers have been displaced. The black community has been especially hard hit in this regard. The schools, which were already a tremendous burden to taxpayers due to the stupid policies of the federal and state governments’, have been pushed to a state of near collapse by illegal aliens. Diseases, which had long been eradicated in this country, are making an alarming comeback thanks to the illegal hosts who carry them into our midst. And as if we didn’t have enough of our own criminals we have added to that number exponentially. Illegal Hispanics comprise 28 percent of the prison population, while making up 4 percent of the population of the country. And if that is not bad enough the president, and those in congress who think like him, must think that our homegrown gangs are not virulent enough. Their stupidity in regard to immigration has enabled Latino gangs to lay siege to the city of Los Angeles, and to spread their tentacles across the land.

The critic who authored the letter with which I opened this column has expressed his belief that since God set in place George Bush as president it is sacrilegious for me, or any other, to criticize him. Well, God set in place King Saul, King Ahab and Jezebel, Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Nero the persecutor of Christians. By an extrapolation from the writer’s viewpoint it would seem that for one to be critical of such leaders is to be in conflict with the scriptures. I have read the rendering of God’s word by Paul the Apostle. And I am mindful of the fact that we have been admonished by the word to be obedient to lawful government, and that we should pray for those who are in positions of authority. I did not find any strictures regarding being critical of political leaders. Maybe if the citizens who were under the rule of the aforementioned despots had been critical of their activities early-on untold millions of lives could have been saved and mountains of abject grief could have been avoided.

My wife, who was unfortunate enough to have been born into the Third Reich under Adolph Hitler, has related what it was like to be dominated by such a regime, and how blind obedience and reverence for the Fuehrer made it possible for this maniac to rise to power and to hold onto that power. That she survived the bombings and the horrors of the war to relate these observations was providential. There was a time when the rise of this maniacal tyrant could have been thwarted, but people were too enamored by his political charisma and verbal expertise to mount a campaign to do so. Later, when he had complete control it was too late. Still he would not have been able to maintain his murderous control over the nation without the acquiescence of all too many German citizens who had a blind allegiance to him. Criticism was not allowed and to participate in such could cause political incarceration and death. Even political jokes were forbidden by the state. How were these restrictions on the people enforced? The answer is with the help of blindly obedient Germans, who informed on their neighbors and reported every minor criticism of the Fuehrer and his regime.

These minions delivered into the hands of the tyrannical government many thousands of innocents who were deemed to be unpatriotic by these rabid Hitler supporters. To be critical was to be unpatriotic, and to be unpatriotic to the dictatorial regime was unlawful and punishable. I respect the right of this letter writer to express his opinion, but you can be absolutely sure that I emphatically and with deadly seriousness disagree with his opinion.

But, we should not worry about any of the preceding. I have the solution in the form of a letter from another of my critics. His criticism of my columns is related below:

“Maybe it is because age has taken away your strength to tote a weapon in defense of the Constitution or the mental capacity to become enraged, but I find your whining and cowardice disgusting. If you want to cry in your coffee do it in private. The rest of us have a battle to fight in this country and it is not over, nor has it even begun.”

So you see this “hero” is going to load up and ride into battle for you and for me, while we cowards hide in the brush until we can be delivered by his mighty hand. I await his rescue that is if he survives his valiant effort against the armed forces of the United States government. After all a real man does not use words, a real man goes down with guns blazing. Good luck, cowboy, you’re going to need it.

I’ll continue to be critical of the unwise actions of our political leaders. How long that continues depends on whether or not enough blindly loyal citizens finally enable a complete tyrant, such as Hitler, to completely seize control of all of our freedoms. Perhaps the cowboy will prevail and save my bacon before that happens.

The Losing Of The War For The Soul Of The Nation


The Losing of The War
For The Soul of The Nation


By Jim R. Schwiesow


The Covenant News ~ April 9, 2007


A MORAL Principle met a Material Interest on a bridge wide enough for but one.
“Down, you base thing!” thundered the Moral Principle, “and let me pass over you!”
The Material Interest merely looked in the other’s eyes without saying anything.
“Ah,” said the Moral Principle, hesitatingly, “let us draw lots to see which shall retire till the other has crossed.”
The Material Interest maintained an unbroken silence and an unwavering stare.
“In order to avoid a conflict,” the Moral Principle resumed, somewhat uneasily, “I shall myself lie down and let you walk over me.”
Then the Material Interest found a tongue, and by a strange coincidence it was its own tongue. “I don’t think you are very good walking,” it said. “I am a little particular about what I have underfoot. Suppose you get off into the water.”

The battle for the Republic has been lost. Further efforts to breath life back into a system, which has been forever adulterated and transfigured is a losing cause. In order to believe that our system can be re-claimed in the name of the people and rehabilitated one must have faith that there is an underlying healthy core or structure, one that has not been made too weak to sustain the painful sacrifices of the rehabilitation process. More than that it would be necessary that a majority of our people would resolve to support such a rehabilitation, which is not even within the realm of possibility given the collective mindset in the country today. Our structure is mealy and moth-eaten and wholly unable to withstand the pressures, which by necessity must be placed upon it to resurrect it to its once splendid condition. To put it in other terms the cancers that have infected our institutions, both governmental and social, have metastasized and have insidiously eaten away the very foundation upon which a formally healthy system once rested. The system is sick and entirely dysfunctional.

We are facing two choices. We can either bite the bullet, finish off the tottering and rotted system we now have and start anew, or we can continue to live within the corrupted remains of a reprobate system brought about by our own indifference and inaction. How did we arrive at this point?

The answer is that we have arrived by design. The global elites of a patient and dedicated demeanor have instituted a master plan, by which they have surreptitiously and systematically degraded the morals of the people. And the morals of the people, good or bad, establish the character of a nation, and always have. If the collective morals of the people are righteous and strong the nation will likewise be moral and sturdy. If the collective conscience of the people has been seared and moral degeneracy prevails, the system will reflect these traits.

One has only to look to history to identify the nations that have followed national immorality to ruin and oblivion. The elites, though degenerate, are not stupid. They can read history also. They have stealthily engineered the circumstances, which have instituted a change of from good to bad in regard to the belief systems of the people in this nation. They do however believe that they have found a way to avoid the complete obliteration and disintegration of the nation, and are confident that they can subdue the freedoms of the people and convert them into indentured slaves. Their goal is to maintain a counterfeit national identity while establishing a ruling class, which will amalgamate the nation into a new world order.

People of discernment are forced to admit that these agents for global control have been highly effective with their campaign to destroy the sovereignty of the people and to ensure that the nation will exist only as a cog in the machinery of a new world order, an order that will have the power to nullify the prerogatives of a once sovereign people. We have nearly arrived in regard to a total domination by these internationalists. Our remaining freedoms hang by a tenuous thread.

Much as one may loathe and despise these agents for the subjugation of the people, we have to admit that they have been masterful in converting the nations, ours included, into heathen citadels for satanic principles. It seems that they know intimately the hedonistic hearts of men and women, and they have tapped into these primal urges with great success. With guile and oily sneakiness they have immersed large numbers of our people in causes, which are rapidly bringing about our demise. The deluded among us slog along to their own eventual end, all the while congratulating themselves on their brilliance and basking in the illusion that they are making society a better place, a place that reflects their subjective beliefs and which they believe will bring about utopian conditions. Because they are guided by sinister forces of cunning intelligence they will most likely succeed with their misguided crusade, but they will live to regret their own stupidity. They will have been instrumental in bringing about a society that is devoid of the very freedoms, which allowed them to maneuver the nation into such a sorry and devastating state of affairs. But, it will be too late; their destiny will have been handed over to an evil clique.

We can only wonder if the brief and illusory feeling of euphoria that these people experience from their sell out of our rights will be any consolation to them when they are suffering from the abject miseries that they will have brought upon the country. I can work up no feelings of sympathy for these dimwits; my compassion is reserved for the solid-thinking citizens who they are dragging down with their selfish need and desire for an inflated feeling of pride and power.

One has to acknowledge the efficacy of the internationalists in their use of our own system in bringing together their control over the nation. They have used the freedoms wrought by the Constitution to secure control of the government and they have used the machinery treacherously provided to them by that subverted government to bring the people to a reprobate state of mind. And they have masterfully used our capitalistic system to move the people to a capitulation to the global agenda. Greed and an uncontrollable desire for material possessions is driving the people to unwise choices in regard to the surrender of their sovereignty and the control over their own destiny.

As a people Americans pay homage to consumerism. They have been enticed to a slavish pursuit for an accumulation of wealth and material possessions. Money is their god they bow down to it, and if they cannot acquire enough of it by their labors, they will mortgage their souls to possess it. By doing so they play into the hands of the internationalists who encourage this pathological pursuit of material treasure. They know that avaricious hearts will lead people to give up their freedoms in exchange for temporal possessions. They know also that if a lusting people lack the wherewithal to possess that which they desire they will go deeply into debt to satiate this lust. Since a huge collective debt of the people and the government enables the internationalists to create piles of money they are in the catbird’s seat. They control the supply of capital, and they are more than willing to use the monetary assets that they have created out of debt and thin air to perpetuate their control and enslavement of middle-class Americans. When the people are in deep enough their souls belong to these global Svengalis’

Once the people are fully hooked, they are reeled in and forced to work six to eight days per week in terms of hours just to stay even. Both spouses of the family are forced into the job market so that they can meet their obligations and pay the interest on their loans. The fact that their time is now committed almost entirely to their work forces them into an abdication of family responsibilities. This fits neatly into the plan of the social engineers who are enabled in the furtherance of their agenda when the parents default on their responsibilities to their children and allow government schools to be surrogate parents who inculcate their children with false values and indoctrinate them with the one world agenda. The destruction of the family is commensurate with the destruction of the Republic, and that is the ultimate goal of the internationalists.

Indeed capitalism is almost entirely the invention of the internationalists. It has greatly enabled them in their pursuit of a new world order. And they have had great success in making it the religion of the masses that strive for a piece of the pie. They may strive, but the great majority will never make it in terms of fame and fortune. The system was not created for their benefit anyway; it was created as a way for the globalists to create wealth for themselves, a wealth that provides the means to acquire absolute power and a worldwide system of governance.

There can be no argument that capitalism has not been responsible for the rapid transference of wealth from the people to the ruling elite. The top ten percent of the adults in the world own eighty-five percent of the global wealth. The rich are becoming progressively richer and the poor are becoming progressively poorer. This is a necessary part of the program by the internationalists if they are to enable their rule over all mankind. They will succeed for a time and then the judgment.

Mike Huckabee – Rev. Huckabee & The Cult Of Unity – Dissent Is Not Allowed In This Church


Rev. Huckabee & The Cult Of Unity
Dissent Is Not Allowed In This Church


By Sean Scallon


The Covenant News ~ September 27, 2007


Say what you want about Fox News but you cannot deny that both of the Republicans debates they have broadcasted had the most memorable moments, both of which involved Ron Paul. The Fox News debate moderators have allowed the debates to actually be debates rather than a 90 minute game of “What’s My Line?” Because many of the GOP candidates seem to want to take a shot at Congressman Paul and his views to set themselves apart in a crowded field, debate is what we get.

The exchange between Paul and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in the Sept. 5 debate in New Hampshire included this line from Huckabee:

“Congressman, we are one nation. We can’t be divided. . . . If we make a mistake, we make it as a single country, the United States of America, not the divided states of America.”

It’s interesting that Huckabee would take this line juxtaposed against perhaps the most ardent decentralist in the field of presidential candidates. On its face it is a silly line. It basically means a homeless junkie living on a heating grate in Washington D.C. is as much responsible for U.S policy in Iraq as Paul Wolfowitz is.

After all we’re one country right? And if we all break it, then we all own it whether we’re porn stars, vagabonds, rednecks, convicts or garage band members.

All one big happy family.

But as silly as such a statement is, we cannot underestimate it. Huckabee knew well what he was saying and knew well who he was saying it to. The call for “unity” is a very loud and powerful call that has echoed throughout U.S. history. It has been a part of political speech whether it was Jackson’s “The Union – It Shall Be Preserved” line to Calhoun or the Webster-Haynes Debate in the U.S. Senate or Lincoln’s “Divided House Cannot Stand” line in his debates with Stephen Douglas. The Constitutional Union Party ran on a unity ticket for president in 1860, Richard Nixon won in 1968 repeating a sign that said “Let’s Bring Us Together.” Even for the upcoming a presidential election, there’s a group advertising itself as “Unity 08” planning on running a candidate.

The call to unity may very well bring a candidate to power, but like Sauron’s Ring of Power it can also be very destructive. It burned the cities of Atlanta and Columbia to the ground. It destroyed the Georgian countryside. It threw people in jail during World War I. It created internment camps in World War II. It spied on people during Vietnam. It has created a massive national security state designed to make sure people adhere to the cult. It has killed the Indian and Mormon alike, it also killed those at Waco. If you wish to see a good example of the madness that can happen when we supposedly all gather forcibly together against common foe, go rent or buy the movie “Sweet Land” about how German immigrants in southern Minnesota were persecuted during the Great War and how southern Minnesota descended into a state near internal conflict because of it.

It must have surprised Jefferson Davis and his advisers that Abraham Lincoln and the North would stand and fight for Ft. Sumter. After all, they must have reasoned, if the abolitionists in the North hated the South and if their leaders like William Lloyd Garrison wanted rid the nation of any slaveholders and damned the Constitution as a “document created in hell,” then surely Northerners wouldn’t fight to keep the South a part of the Union. There would be no reason to do so, just say your good byes and go your own separate ways. But it wasn’t the abolitionists that controlled the Republican Party. If they did control it, they would have nominated a much more outspoken foe of slavery like William Seward instead of the more moderate Lincoln. But it was Lincoln who won the nomination and the Presidency. And he was a strong believer of Henry Clay’s American System of connecting country together through national roads, railroads and canals. He was very much a lover of the passionate oratory of fellow Whig Daniel Webster upholding the Union. And bequeathed that Union, there was no way Lincoln was going let it simply fall apart on his watch. His predecessor James Buchanan said there was nothing Constitutional he could do as president to keep the country together and he was right (This was a separation, not an insurrection. The South never wanted to overthrow the U.S. government.) Lincoln basically said damn the Constitution (which he did by suspending habeus corpus), the country was staying together no matter what. The Union was no longer voluntary, as Southerners originally thought, it was now a prison in which Lincoln was the warden, the states were the cells and no escape was allowed.

The United States may have started as a loose confederation of North American British colonies, but every year of its existence, bit by bit, centrifugal forces have pulled it tighter and tighter together. These forces include commercial and monetary interests, which prefer the large and efficient over the small and decentralized. They include moral interests, the desire to see the whole country conform to a certain standard of behavior, and they include nationalistic and jingoistic interests which at first did not want to see any part of the Union break up for fear of domination by European colonial powers. When those powers departed the American continents, that fear was replaced by the desire to make sure the people went along with the U.S. new imperial stature around the world. Events that have marked this historical journey include the Constitutional Convention of 1787, the War Between the States, the establishment of the Federal Income Tax and the direct vote of U.S. Senators, Prohibition, the First World War, The Depression, World War II, the civil rights movement and the lastest event, 9-11.

Of course, unity is a natural human reaction. People just don’t like division and the strife between. They like cooperation and harmony and such values are taught from day you get into sandbox. And it’s continuously taught to you whether in the choir, on the football team or in the boardroom as well. For all the talk of individualism within U.S. society, for the most part, it’s only practiced by the few. Everyone else is part of the team. That’s the hold the cult of unity has on people. It takes advantage of this natural environment.

But as Americans are want to do, they overdo it. It’s not that flag flying or patriotic songs or parades or speeches are by themselves alone bad. They’re not. It’s belief that everyone has to be on the same page or something is terribly wrong and someone who doesn’t conform has to be punished severly, as Natalie Maines found out. You can ignore U.S. patriotism if you like but it doesn’t ignore you and if you are not taking part as enthusiastically as you are believed to be, then you are suspect. It’s not quite fascism but it’s not far from it either. And in so being, Huckabee wasn’t distant from Hitler’s “Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Furher!” declaration.

It didn’t take long after the twin towers fell that President Bush II declared “Either you are for us or against us.” Soon came the T-shirts and the bumper stickers saying “United We Stand.” Soon after that came the airport screeners, the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act. Security is what supposed unify us, keeps us protected like a mother Lion protects her cubs. This is not something you can just opt out of either. You may not be a terrorist. You may not look like or even have a criminal record. Doesn’t matter. Take off your shoes, throw away that bottle of liquid sir, give me your scissors and let us strip search you. You can’t have the unified state unless we’re all considered potential security threats so deal with. You either for us or against us!

Fear is what keeps the locals in line, or at least keeps them worshipping the cult of unity. The possibility of another internal war or rebellion, some sort of national emergency, riots, insurrection in the cities, bitter political divisions, all of these things send a shutter down the collective spine of U.S citizens. It doesn’t matter the year or the age, many Americans to this day still wonder how such a diverse country manages to keep it all together when others have been blown apart by such diversity. Nobody wants to see such conflict. Americans shrink from it. They are horrified by the prospect of it. And yet it nearly happened long ago. The Union was nearly broken in two. The monuments and gravestones are all around us to remind of this fact. This is what keeps the fear in the back of many American’s minds. James Baldwin played on that fear with his “fire next time” in his novels. Tim McVeigh played on it during the Oklahoma City bombings as did the New Year’s Gang back in 1970 and the bombing of Sterling Hall on the University of Wisconsin campus. The Ku Klux Klan played on it in its showdown with the FBI in Mississippi during Freedom Summer 1964. Such a fear exploded again during 9-11 when an All-American boy named Johnny Walker Lind from California wound up in a Taliban camp. If U.S. citizens passively accept the national security state, maybe it’s because they feel it’s only way to keep the country together. If a few malcontents and traitors get thrown in jail, even on the flimsiest of reasons, so be it. Better denied justice than internal warfare, or so the reasoning goes.

Huckabee didn’t approach the unity question from a fear standpoint. He’s much too smooth for that. Like the skilled preacher he is in the cult of unity, he appealed to our better nature, our collective sense of responsibility. Our collective sense of “honor.” If U.S. voters feel that they can just wash their hands of the war in Iraq, if they feel they can separate themselves from policy makers who blundered their way into the conflict with their stupid policies, then the quicker the war ends for the U.S citizens will simply demand the troops come home regardless of the consequences. But no, says the right Rev. Huckabee, we’re all in this together. You can’t just walk away from this even you didn’t vote for President Bush II or any candidate who supported his policies. Your taxpayer money too has been used to blow up bridges in your name in Iraq. How dare you say “Not in our name!” You’re just as responsible and just as guilty. Stay the course and shut up, otherwise you risk offending the cult. You risk division in a time of war when we all have to pull together. Doesn’t matter if the burden of service falls only on the few. Doesn’t matter if you’ve barely sacrificed anything for the war effort. Doesn’t matter if you agree with the policy or not. There’s a war on, and you’re not allowed to take a flier on it. If everyone did that, then everyone else would do it and would have (peace) anarchy. You don’t want to go there do you? You don’t want to open that Pandora’s Box?

Yes, I’m afraid Rev. Huckabee’s Church of Unity is in session, and walking out the back is not allowed.

Culling The Herd


Culling The Herd


By Sheila Samples


The Covenant News ~ June 24, 2009


“Everything you can imagine is real” –Pablo Picasso

In 1974, a year after orchestrating a mass terror bombing of Cambodia — after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize — Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and his National Security Council completed “National Security Study Memo 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” This document, whose sharp edges are dulled by page after leaden page of how to reduce overpopulation in the Third World through birth control and “other” population-reduction programs, was classified until 1989, but was almost immediately accepted as US policy, and remains the US blueprint for ethnic cleansing today.

It is difficult to imagine the staggering number of innocent humans who have perished through war or famine as a direct result of Kissinger’s half-century obsession with, and lust for, genocide. It’s even more difficult to imagine the cruel indifference with which Kissinger, and those like him in positions of political and corporate power — the elite — continue to plan the elimination of millions, even billions. All under the guise of national security, or to spread freedom . . . democracy . . .

Kissinger targeted a number of “key countries” whose populations, he said, must be curtailed and controlled lest they gain economic, political and military strength, and thus threaten US strategic interests. “Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the Third World,” Kissinger said, “because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.”

Then, as now, any nation refusing to surrender its natural resources was an ominous threat to our national security and was dealt with initially through birth control and other population-reduction programs such as food rationing. But that was too slow for Kissinger, for Brent Scowcroft who replaced Kissinger as national security adviser and was put in charge of thinning out the Third World population, and for his eager enabler, CIA Director George H.W. Bush who trotted like a love-starved puppy at Kissinger’s heels for decades.

At first, they used food as “an instrument of national power” to coerce the dumb masses to stop copulating and populating, and then as a deadly weapon because widespread famine not only dealt death quicker, but it was cost-effective. And it made more sense. Like Kissinger said, “To give food aid to a country just because they [sic] are starving is a pretty weak reason.”

If we could imagine the suffering endured by victims of such perverse inhumanity, we might feel a twinge of outrage or, as George Washington so succinctly put it, a “little spark of celestial fire called conscience.” Or not. Perhaps we are so far removed from reality because our minds cannot grasp the horror of that reality. Those who seek to destroy the denizens of this planet are totally without compassion or remorse. They are grotesque mutants who kill indiscriminately in their relentless drive for world conquest and domination.

It’s naive to think the carnage will stop once predators such as Kissinger, Alexander Haig, Robert McNamara, George H.W. Bush, and other One World advocates, many of whom are in their 80s or 90s, are no longer in our midst. With the release of thousands of tons of depleted uranium in both Bush Gulf wars and Afghanistan, they have poisoned food, water and air, and turned the entire region into massive radioactive death camps. Without fear of accountability, they have ensured the slow, agonizing extermination of entire populations, to include the American military, whom Kissinger views as “dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy” — and their families — that will continue for many generations.

We’re like herds of cattle, grazing placidly, unable or unwilling to imagine that we might share the same fate as the millions throughout the Third World targeted by the elite as “bottom feeders,” contributing nothing — eating into their profit — gluttons who must be dispensed with. Any rancher or farmer will tell you that it’s good business to cull the herd for a variety of reasons, such as market outlook, cash flow, or just to maintain a healthier, more easily controlled mass of cattle. It makes no sense to keep problem cows, the elderly, the ill or nonproductive around. There comes a time when you must cut your losses and cull the herd.

There are those who, unlike Kissinger and his co-conspirators, are not interested in profit or power, but believe fervently that human population is destroying the planet. Perhaps the most outspoken is University of Texas evolutionary scientist Dr. Eric R. Pianka, who gave a speech in March 2006 advocating the elimination of 90 percent of Earth’s population.

According to Forrest M. Mims III, chairman of the Environmental Science Section of the Texas Academy of Science and the editor of The Citizen Scientist, Pianka shrugged aside war and famine — too slow — and said “the most efficient and fastest way to kill the billions that must soon die” is disease. Pianka advocates airborne Ebola because, he explained, “it is highly lethal, and it kills in days, instead of years.”

Pianka drew rounds of enthusiastic applause throughout his speech, and a standing ovation when he threw in the Bird Flu for good measure, and quipped gleefully, “We need to sterilize everybody on the Earth.” Five hours later, the university presented Pianka with a plaque, not for winning hands down as “Mad Scientist of the Year,” but in recognition of his being named 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist.

It doesn’t take a wild imagination to know that genocide is real, and it’s underway in America. The most blatant example is the barbaric response to Hurricane Katrina victims — withholding food, blocking aid, ignoring those clinging to rooftops while crying out in vain for help, leaving corpses to float in the flooded streets or to rot in the Superdome. If you start with the poor, minorities, elderly, the ill or nonproductive, the culling becomes much easier the next time around. Those who wait become inured to the inhumanity and, rather than rise up against it, breathe sighs of relief that it’s others and not them who are rounded up and herded to the slaughterhouse.

Imagine what life would be like if the Food and Drug Administration did not ensure the safety of our food chain . . . if our creeks and rivers were polluted by sewage and industrial waste . . . if vaccines forced on our children caused mental deficiencies, even death . . . if mothers were afraid to breast-feed their babies because the environmental toxin perchlorate present in our food and water supply accumulates in mother’s milk . . . if our air was contaminated . . . if we had a government cold-hearted enough to withhold food and aid from the needy and health care from poor children . . . if we were spied upon and incarcerated, tortured, disappeared without charges . . .

Oh yeah. I forgot. That is what our life is like. All that, and more, is grinding relentlessly away at our safety, our health and our lives.

We have the power to remove these madmen. They are criminals under Articles II and III of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, and they must pay for their crimes. One more year wherein millions more throughout the world are slaughtered is, as they say, not an option.
