"It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government." ―Thomas Paine
It is sad that an atheist like Thomas Paine had more patriotism than most believers do today, who errantly think that "patriotism" means unquestioning submission to government.
I recently heard some statements on FoxNews, made by Bill O'Reilly, accusing anyone who dares to criticize the Bush administration during a time of war as being "unpatriotic." The truth is that FoxNews is effectively silencing and discrediting patriotic Americans today (1 hr. 17 min. Google video), who are crying out for justice and an end to the illegal war in Iraq. Patriotism is love for one's own country, and a willingness to sacrifice for it. Bill O'Reilly and FoxNews evidently have a problem differentiating between partisanship and patriotism. Evidently they think that loyalty to a corrupt and criminal White House administration equates to patriotism. FoxNews is in bed with the corporate whores and criminal syndicate that is controlling the U.S. government. Is this love for country?
It was former U.S. President, Thomas Jefferson, who warned...
"When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will... become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated."
Is this not the United States today? Yes, it certainly is. The federal government has grown too big for its britches! Congressman Ron Paul puts it well into perspective when he states...
"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U. S. membership in the U.N.; no gun control; and no foreign aid. We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; No American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; and no income tax. We can get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget. The government would be small, frugal, and limited."
― CONGRESSMAN RON PAUL
Amen to that! Dr. Ron Paul explains why our government is getting away with so much evil... because we let them!
"Most governments, including our own, tend to do what they can get away with rather than what the law allows them to do. All governments seek to increase their power over the people they govern, whether we want to recognize it or not. The Patriot Act is a vivid example of this. Constitutions and laws don’t keep government power in check; only a vigilant populace can do that." ―Rep. Ron Paul
Please read Congressman Ron Paul's article, It Can't Happen Here. If you want a good education as to what is happening to America, then please read Rep. Ron Paul's' article, We've Been Neo-Conned, in which he makes the following statement...
"It is getting more difficult to get fair and balanced discussion on the issues, because it has become routine for the hegemons to label those who object to preemptive war and domestic surveillance as traitors, unpatriotic and un-American."
―Rep. Ron Paul
In other words, the Bush Administration and their allies in the news media label anyone who disagrees with their warmongering as traitors and un-patriotic. Sadly, I've been called "unpatriotic" even by Christians, because I expose the evils within the Bush Administration, and the pre911 planned war in Iraq. The government had prior knowledge. Nearly 3,000 American citizens were murdered on the morning of September 11th, 2001.
It's time to get MAD America!
Beware Brainwashing Propaganda
Tragically, most of America's Christian leaders have bought into the Satanic lie that we should have blind loyalty for government, no matter how many laws they violate, innocent people they kill, or numerous crimes they commit.
I could write a book on the ridiculous brainwashing propaganda that many of today's Christian author's are writing. One of the most well-known fundamental preachers in America recently wrote a book blaming Islam for 911. Anyone who has a sincere desire to know the truth, and has sought the truth is this matter, knows that Islam had nothing to do with 911. If I told you that the Illuminati was behind 911 you probably wouldn't believe me, but it's true, Here's one of their places of worship. This should not be surprising to Christians who know their Bible, because Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Satan controls the world through occult organizations.
There's a Christian man, an Independent Fundamental Baptist, who's name if I mentioned would be recognized by most of my readers. He speaks at churches all across America concerning Biblical submission to government, and has taught believers to remain publicly silent concerning government evils. Here's a ridiculous quote from one of his books...
"People hostile to Christianity bring out paper after paper that have been written by Christians I know and love. The articles and paper do contain statements that are hostile to government. They do not speak well of government, and, as a result, they do not speak well of Christ."
Now, that is just ridiculous folks! Clearly, he wouldn't like my website. How can you reconcile his statements with Psalm 94:16... "Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?" Is there any way we can RISE UP against the evildoers in government without seeming hostile towards government? No, but we're still supposed to STAND UP! According to his quote above, Christians who speak out against the evils in our government are being HOSTILE, and speaking evil of Christ. Nothing could be further from the truth. You can't show me one verse in the Bible that requires Christians to be mindless slaves to government. Ephesians 5:11 plainly states, "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." The word "reprove" comes from the Greek elencho and means "TO EXPOSE." Thus, we are expected by God to expose Satan's work.
The author of the above quote is wrong. We are not speaking evil of Jesus Christ when we criticize and protest against crimes being committed by government leaders. In the same book as the quote above, the author states...
"The Bible teaches that sometimes God even raises up wicked and unjust governments. In Daniel we find Nebuchadnezzar in power ... At times God would raise up wicked and hostile powers to punish His people. They did not rise on their own. God was in control ... God sustains all government and government is subject to Him."
What the author of the above quote fails to mention is that God didn't corrupt Israel from within, he raised up a foreign nation to judge them for their disobedience. America is being subverted from within by Communist agendas. America is largely already Communist today. Our nation has been sold out by many of our entrusted political, judicial, and legislative leaders. We read in Proverb 6:17-19 that God hates... "A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Thus, God intensely hates the evils of the Clinton and Bush administrations, because they're repeatedly GUILTY of all those sins. God is not responsible for the crimes of the U.S. Government "...for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man" (James 1:13).
The author of the previous quotes goes on in his book to state...
"God did not author the Constitution... there are serious problems with the Constitution as the source of our beliefs... If you base your beliefs on the First Amendment, you are raising the Constitution to the level of God's Word."
Now, I don't have a problem with the facts he is stating per se; BUT, I DO have a problem that he is trying to use them to discourage Christians from criticizing, and taking a Biblical stand against government CRIMES. The author goes on to point out that the Apostle Paul was often wrongfully imprisoned, but still contended that we should submit to government. Please consider that Paul was immediately released from prison when Roman leaders found out that he was a Roman CITIZEN... "Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him" (Acts 22:29). Paul had rights. I want you to notice carefully that there is a BIG difference between speaking evil of government out of rebellion, as compared to exposing specific CRIMES happening within our government. As RESPONSIBLE citizens, this is our DUTY. The average churchgoer today is totally brainwashed, and thinks that it's wrong to speak out against criminal government. Wake up! When a government's leaders commit CRIMES against it's citizens, there is a cry for justice. Anyone who enjoys their American freedoms today cannot argue this point, because American was founded on the American REVOLUTION! I am not for anarchy, I am for justice!
Conditioning the Masses
It's no coincidence that numerous S.W.A.T. reality series have recently been aired on television for Americans to behold. These shows glorify militarized police forces surrounding U.S. Citizen's homes, breaking down U.S. Citizen's doors, and hauling away U.S. Citizens in handcuffs to prison. They're desensitizing the U.S. public to this type of Nazi/Communist activity. Bible-believing Christians, Patriots, and other protesters will be imprisoned, charged as terrorists. Don't believe it? Rosie O'Donnell recently equated Bible-believing Christians with Al Qaeda terrorists.
It's important to remember that during the days of the Russian Revolution, according to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, author of the eye-opening book THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO, that only about 15% of the Russian population was directly affected by the Revolution. While children were playing in the streets, and most people were going about their daily lives as usual, a small percentage of citizens (the troublemakers) were being arrested and secretly taken to undisclosed locations, never to be seen or heard from again. Mr. Solzhenitsyn relates in his book―of people getting into taxis and never being seen again, of fathers going to work and never returning home, and of the ineffable torturous conditions of the slave labor camps where the victims were secretly taken to. Untold tens-of-millions of people were tortured to death and brutally murdered in those government camps. If you think this couldn't happen in America, read this! Halliburton was awarded a contract worth $385,000,000 by the Bush administration back in 2006, to build concentration camps in America! Please read Congressman Ron Paul's needful article, It Can't Happen Here!
Beware of FoxNews!
Bill O'Reilly has horribly condemned anyone who dares speak out against the CRIMES of the Bush administration, labeling such people as "unpatriotic" and accusing them of "hurting the troops." Evidently Mr. O'Reilly believes that all Americans should unquestioningly submit to the powers that be, with no vocal criticisms, no matter how criminal government's actions may be. Is this justice? It couldn't be more obvious that Bill O'Reilly is paid to miss the point and spread misinformation concerning the Bush administration and the war in Iraq.
I recently watched Bill O'Reilly on his show try to humiliate and discredit a 9-year veteran of the Gulf War, because the soldier criticized the mistreatment of U.S. soldiers by the Bush administration. What right does Bill O'Reilly have to criticize a man that is a 9-year veteran of the military? Who is more qualified to speak about abuses in the military... a loud mouth news man, or a 9-year veteran of the military? Bill O'Reilly ought to apologize to that veteran! In one breath Mr. O'Reilly claims to support the troops, but then he openly rejects and ridicules a veteran who is trying to inform the public concerning abuses in the military. Bill O'Reilly, like most people working in the newsmedia, is a hypocrite. It just proves that FoxNews is anything but "fair and balanced." They are extremely unfair and way off balance. Bill O'Reilly only cares about his own agendas, or should I say... the agendas that he is paid to care about?
Bill O'Reilly contends that all American's should rally behind the President during a time of war. What Mr. O'Reilly conveniently refuses to address is the fact that MOST Americans don't support this war, including the parents of some of the dead soldiers in Iraq. People are fed up with the misinformation, lies, abuse, and Nazi-style laws and policies coming out the Bush administration. OUR government does what they do with OUR money, and in OUR name; YET, Mr. O'Reilly wants us to turn a blind eye to the ruthless illegal war in Iraq. According to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public health, over 650,000 Iraqis have been murdered since the invasion of Iraq began in March of 2003!!! Folks, the blood of all those innocent people are on every American's hands! Please read, The Evils of the Iraqi Invasion, and The Evils of Depleted Uranium. As Congressman Ron Paul has truthfully stated...
"Only tyrants can take a nation to war without the consent of the people. The planned war against Iraq without a Declaration of War is illegal. It is unwise because of many unforeseen consequences that are likely to result. It is immoral and unjust, because it has nothing to do with US security and because Iraq has not initiated aggression against us."
―Congressman Ron Paul
Need I say more? Bill O'Reilly is not worthy to shine Congressman Ron Paul's shoes! Dr. Ron Paul is 100% correct; yet, Americans aren't listening, because they DON'T CARE until it adversely affects them, and it eventually will, but by then it will be too late. Wake up America!
We watch FOX so you don't have to!
True patriotism, i.e., genuine love for one's country, must be rooted in justice for its CITIZENS. I use the word "citizens" on purpose, because the New World Order gang likes to refer to us rather as second class civilians. We are CITIZENS, and as such have LEGAL RIGHTS, granted to us by the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution.
The Bush administration has committed woeful injustices against the American people. The Bush administration's prior knowledge and complicity in the 911 attacks is well documented by hundreds of pieces of concrete evidence (such as FEMA setting up camp in New York on the night of 09-10-01). Another piece of incriminating evidence is Bush's signing of Presidential Directive W199-eye, which protected the suspect terrorists before 911. You need to watch this video. Also, see Bush Family Fortunes. The unannounced war games on the morning of 911 is yet another incriminating item against the Bush administration. The war games were a cover for the terrorist attacks. Dick Cheney actually told NORAD to "stand down" on the morning of 911, after the attacks had begun.
The Reagan and Clinton administrations are guilty as well. America is being sold up a creek without a paddle. Our manufacturing jobs have been taken away from us by our own government leaders, who are in bed with the greedy corporate whoremongers. Our borders have been deliberately left wide open, to allow massive illegal immigration to provide slave labor for the corporations, and to further subvert America. Our national debt is skyrocketing upward, now over $9,000,000,000,000!!! We owe all of that money to PRIVATE bankers, i.e., the owners of the treasonous and criminal Federal Reserve Bank which was started in 1913. Is it patriotism to remain silent about these atrocious evils which are destroying the sovereignty of America, bankrupting U.S. citizens, and sending out our children to die in vain?
True patriotism is a love for one's country; not loyalty to a particular political platform, agenda, or Presidential administration. Bill O'Reilly and other's today have wrongfully and deceptively REDEFINED "patriotism" to mean loyalty to the polices of the Bush administration; BUT, that is not patriotism at all. In a sad paradox, the very patriots back home in America who are crying for justice in their nation, are the ones being labeled as "unpatriotic." Bill O'Reilly likes to impress people with all those big words, but he needs to stop once and awhile and actually look up the meaning of some words, like the word "patriotism." It is NOT unpatriotic to be a political subversive, i.e., to oppose the CRIMES being committed by the federal government. And let's use the word "crimes," not corruption, because people have grown accustomed to hearing the term "political corruption." We're talking about ruthless, treasonous, death-penalty crimes here! The Iraqi people want the U.S. out of their country, but we won't leave, because the agenda behind the war never was about WMD, saving the Iraqi people, or Sadaam Hussein―it was about stealing Iraq's oil and taking control of a strategic position in the Middle East, in the ongoing conquest to build a New World Order.
