The past two weeks have been encouraging to those of us who hold conservative values. We have seen some sanity return to the highest Court of the Land! SCOTUS' latest round of rulings have been wins for religious freedom and Constitutional authority.
But if you want to make some sense of rapid decline of the past six years I will give you some homework.
Don't purchase a copy of the book but Google Saul Alinksy and "Rules for Radicals". This book has framed the social and political philosophy of current American leaders such as President Obama and Hillary Clinton. The latter wrote her senior college thesis on Saul Alinksy. The former has adopted Alinsky's strategies in his political "leadership".
Alinsky dedicated this book to Lucifer (aka - Satan) whom he admires as the "Original Radical". When a book begins with a tribute to the devil you can imagine where it goes from there.
As you do some research on Alinksy and his radical theories, suddenly some nonsensical Presidential rulings and decisions will make sense.
Another political strategy that guides the thinking of our Chief Executive and is often implemented by him comes from the teaching of two former Columbia University professors named Richard Cloward and Frances Pivens. Google "Cloward and Pivens Strategy" and do some research. Again, many of these "head-scratcher" policies that are being proposed and passed will suddenly make sense.
In short, Cloward and Pivens taught the way to collapse the American economy is to simply overload it with debt and entitlements. While this theory was directed toward economic collapse it also applies to the judicial system by overloading the court dockets with frivolous law suits, the legislative system by overloading it with codes and laws and regulations and the political demographics by flooding the nation with illegal aliens and creating a permanent dependent class of people.
This is suppose to be an inspirational or edifying blog, so I am sorry to expose you to these evil strategies, but you need to "discern" the times so you better understand how to pray and live!
Let me remind you that these evil concepts did not originate with Alinsky or Cloward or Pivens. They came from the Father of Lies and He has been defeated by our Lord Jesus Christ!
Stand strong in the Lord and the power of His might!
Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.
