The Mountain of Business

flag2

As Dominionists strive to conquer the Seven Mountains of Culture and instill a Biblical worldview in individuals across the world, there have been few stones left unturned. They are making headway in all of those areas at a pretty rapid rate.

Business is one of those mountains to be conquered. We have all heard about the controversies surrounding businesses like Chic-Filet and Hobby Lobby. What most haven’t heard about is how they are moving into businesses, small and large. Most of us don’t know about the indoctrination of many within the workplace – all part of their agenda – all creeping stealthily with certainty into the realm of business.

ICWMPerhaps the most well known Dominionist (and opportunist) who is chipping away at the mountain of business is Os Hillman and his International Coalition of Workplace Ministries. However, as is true with all of those furthering the Dominionist movement, there are many more, less heard of, ministries and groups. Hillman serves as the front man, gathering the focus, while there are other operatives at work behind the scenes.

One of those groups is The Navigators, a para-church outfit out of Colorado Springs (where else?). Their main purpose is training Christians in how to proselytize and share their faith with others, particularly in the workplace. According to Wikipedia, “Currently, more than 4,600 Navigator staff of 69 nationalities minister to college students, military personnel, business and professional people, communities, and churches in 103 countries.”

The Navigators is not a new organization. It has a long standing history in the United States and around the world:

 “The Navigators was founded in 1933 by Dawson Trotman. As a result of mentoring United States Navy sailor Lester Spencer aboard USS West Virginia, 135 additional Sailors on Spencer’s ship became Christians before it was sunk at Pearl Harbor. By the end of World War II, thousands of men on ships and bases around the world were learning the principles of Christian discipleship.

“The collegiate chapter of the Navigators was founded in 1951 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The organization was established by a group of students in the Sigma Nu fraternity house who along with Trotman decided to spread the organization onto the college campus. The collegiate organization of the Navigators has since spread to over fifty different campuses in the US and many more worldwide.

“Since WWII, The Navigators has grown into a worldwide organization with representatives in most countries. In 1953, it acquired its current location at Glen Eyrie through Billy Graham‘s sale of the then-vacant property to Trotman’s organization. As a result of a well-organized fund raising effort despite an extremely tight deadline, friends of The Navigators provided the money needed to purchase the site.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Navigators_(organization)

They have been named in several lawsuits by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation for their continued proselytizing in the military.

In their endeavors to create a Christian work environment in the United States they operate Metro Missions of the Navigators. They concentrate on building a Christian workforce in several major cities where they sponsor various events and outreach for business leaders and workers. According to the Kansas City website:

 “Our local ministry is a part of The Navigators worldwide organization. The central idea of The Navigators is multiplying laborers for Christ. This includes evangelism, following up new Christians and helping them mature. The Navigators today has 4,605 Staff Members of 71 nationalities ministering to 214 people groups in 107 countries using 161 languages, including 1,267 cross-cultural missionary staff. The aim of The Navigators is to help fulfill Christ’s Great Commission by multiplying laborers in every nation.”

Additionally, their college outreach programs along with what they call the 20’s Generation they have become very successful in attracting future workers and business owners. They claim to have reached 21.6 million college students, and the mission of the 20’s Generation is stated as follows:

 “We want the 20s generation to be fruitful lifetime laborers who love Christ and have the savvy to follow Him in a lost world. The Nav20s are committed to seeing this happen among the 20s of our cities—where they live, work, and play.”

The leadership of the Navigators stays relatively unscathed and out of public scrutiny. They make no waves and seldom make headlines in anything other than the usual Christian publications. They simply, and quietly, continue to claim the mountain of business for Christ.

Called into work Called Into Work is another group who claims to be training up an army of Christian believers to bring Christ to the workplace. In fact, they aren’t shy about stating their purpose:

 “Are you part of that “army” of Christian believers God has strategically deployed throughout the work world? Soldiers sent into a war zone need to be battle-ready. Your work world is a spiritual war zone. As a Christ-follower who spends a major part of your waking hours there, you need to be workplace-ready.”

http://www.calledintowork.com/

 

Believing that they are in a spiritual war zone, and that Christianity is being threatened has become the mantra of the religious right. Their efforts to harvest souls, recruit and convert, and take dominion over the workplace and business in general have become much more aggressive of late. With organizations like Corporate Chaplains of America making their sizable contributions to the Christian Jihad, the Dominionists are doing a lot more than chipping away at that mountain of business.

corporateWhile Corporate Chaplains of America claim to “respect the faith boundaries of employees, they boldly publicize their Statement of Faith  – a true testament to Dominionism:

 “About the Bible: We believe that the Bible as originally written is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

“About God: We believe that there is one and only one living and true God; that He eternally exists as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that all three are eternally equal in nature, attributes and perfection.

“About Jesus: We believe Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit by the virgin Mary, lived a physical life on this earth and, being fully God and fully man, was without sin.

“About Salvation: We believe that all mankind sins and as such, no one has the ability to save themselves by doing good deeds or by being a ‘good person’. It is only through accepting Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord that one can receive eternal life in Heaven. Salvation is available to anyone who acknowledges by faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for their sins, rose bodily from the grave, and asks Him to forgive them of their sins and save their soul.

“About Ministry: We believe that, as Christians, it is a responsibility, a duty and a joy to spread the Word of God to all who will listen.”

http://www.chaplain.org/about-us/beliefs/#sthash.O77t2SWE.dpuf

In short, CCA trains and helps to place Christian Chaplains into the workplaces of business and industry. Their mission?

“At CCA, our mission is to “build caring relationships with the hope of gaining permission to share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ in a non-threatening manner.” As global economies rise and fall, one need remains the same – the need of souls to find lasting hope. At CCA, we believe that Jesus Christ is the answer to our greatest need. While we respect the faith boundaries of employees and adhere to the standards and expectations for a permission-based, secular workplace ministry, when directly asked about their theological underpinnings, our chaplains are trained to respond from a Biblical Christian worldview.”

http://www.chaplain.org/about-us/overview/#sthash.hsQDerol.dpuf

CCA is affiliated with the C12 Group. The C12 Group is all about making your company a profitable business by incorporating the Bible into your business scheme. One example of adhering to the C12 plan that resulted in a lawsuit can be found here: http://www.courthousenews.com/2013/01/18/54048.htm

C12In their hype about why business owners should join the C12 Group, they make the following statement:

 “Beyond producing stronger top and bottom-line performance, C12 member companies are increasingly fruitful in sharing Christ’s love in tangible ways with their stakeholders through salvations, discipling, and service to their communities. The typical C12 member company reaches a far larger “flock” than most churches and, given how few Americans regularly attend a Christ-centered church, C12 companies are able to have great ministry impact along the way. C12 Members also report improvements to their marriages, families, and work relationships as a result of C12’s proven life-long learning process, rooted in God’s unchanging truth.”

Perhaps the largest outfit in this country is Marketplace Chaplains USA originating out of Dallas, Texas. They currently can be found operating in 44 states and 960 cities, and are employing over 2,800 chaplains. The largest company served by them is Pilgrim’s with close to 4,000 employees.

Not only is that mountain of business in their sights, but they continue to intrude into the lives of unsuspecting individuals who simply want to do their jobs and enjoy their families without outside pressure or interference. Additionally, it is quite a money-maker. After all, God wants his Christians to prosper.

CBAExemplifying the ideal of Dominionist Kingdom Theology is a group calling themselves The Christian Business Association. Part of their schitk is encouraging business owners to develop a “Kingdom Mindset.” An excerpt from their philosophy of such a mindset gives us the flavor of what they are selling:

 “The Bible calls for us to pursue economic growth. Long-term economic growth is a sign of Gods blessing on His people. True, it should not be pursued as such. “But seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33). All these things is the promise of economic growth and prosperity in response to covenantal obedience.

Think about this when it comes to long term forecasting: as long as there is growth in population, which is a means of dominion, we will have both growing per capita wealth and rapidly increasing numbers of people. Rapid growth is a blessing of God that points to our final deliverance from the sin of bondage.

The simple truth is economic growth comes to societies that respond to Gods call of repentance. This of course does not mean that every single redeemed man will become rich and all sinners will go broke. What it means is that as a general phenomenon, those living under the rule of God’s law-order will prosper, and those living in societies that are in rebellion to God will not prosper. Long term economic growth is a sign of Gods blessing. Long term economic poverty is a sign of Gods wrath.”

KAAnd others have jumped on the bandwagon. Smelling a profitable enterprise, financial advisors have coat-tailed onto the ever-growing Kingdom Movement, among them Kingdom Advisors. They list their “Core Beliefs:”

“MY PRACTICE

I am called to be a disciple of Christ and a discipler of others in my present vocation. The stewardship of my practice is a holy calling and requires intentionality and will have eternal consequences for me.

“LEADERSHIP

As a disciple of Christ and discipler of others, I am called to leadership. Leadership is a function of character and not position. The skills of leadership can be nurtured and developed.

“DISCIPLESHIP

According to Matthew 28:18, Jesus calls each of us to go and to make disciples of all men. The goal of discipleship is to “Present every man complete in Christ,” Colossians 1:28-29. Discipleship is an intentional lifelong process.

“BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW

My worldview is my ultimate core belief and, as a Christian, I believe in a personal creator who created me to be in relationships with others for all eternity. It is an empowered other-centered life that requires my radical obedience to our Lord and Savior. I know that God always has my best interests at heart and ultimately it is all about God and not me. Everything I do while living on earth has an eternal consequence.”

Then there is the Christian Investment Forum and Sound Mind Investing, along with a host of others championing the same views. Sound Mind Investing offers a very simplistic and succinct mission statement:

“Sound Mind Investing exists to help individuals understand and apply Biblically-based principles for making spending and investing decisions in order that:

  1. their future financial security would be strengthened, and
  1. their giving to worldwide missionary efforts for the cause of Christ would   accelerate.

“In other words, we want to help you have more so you can give more.”

Over the past 10 years, more and more corporate CEO’s have “outed” themselves as Dominionists or right-wing fundamentalists. That, coupled with, the number of evangelicals, and hard-line extremists who have gained seats in our state and national governmental entities has created an environment which is polarizing the country.

With Dominionist organizations such as the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and the Heritage Foundation among many others, fostering the growth of the movement, conquering the mountain of business is moving ahead as planned.

This has been but a glimpse into the many, many groups and organizations involved in Christianizing the business world. Interestingly – and alarmingly –  this is happening right under our noses, and few speak of it. As we go about our busy daily lives, most individuals are oblivious to the machinations of the Dominionists, and they like it that way.

KANSAS ZEALOTS BASTARDIZE THE CONSTITUTION JUST LIKE THEY DO THE BIBLE

If you are following nothing other than mainstream media, you might have missed what the right-wing, religious nutso legislators are doing in the State of Kansas. In an effort to, once again, circumvent the United States Constitution, they have decided to resurrect old Jim Crow and this time homosexuals will be the victims.

In a frenzied attempt to further their religious agenda and implement a government by theocracy, the Kansas State House of Representatives passed HB 2453 which, as written, legalizes wholesale discrimination against homosexuals based upon “religious freedom.”

This bill now goes to the Kansas State Senate, where it stands a chance of passing, and it is a sure bet that Governor Sam Brownback will have no problem signing it into law. Of course, it will eventually be overturned, but the very acceptance of such a blatantly despicable and oppressive piece of legislation by a body of individuals who have been placed in positions of power should sound the alarm bells and raise all sorts of red flags for sane and rational people.

Rmuse, a columnist at Politicususa.com, perhaps said it best today when he wrote:

There is a war going on in America where one specific group of Americans is claiming their religious liberty affords them power to abridge other Americans’ rights in spite of state and federal laws or guarantees of freedom in the U.S. Constitution. What the religious right and their Republican enablers are pushing in Congress and GOP-controlled states under the guise of religious liberty is religious tyranny, and now another group of Republican fascists are passing legislation to violate the Constitution and other Americans’ rights. Americans should not be deluded for one second that theocratic-driven laws denying Americans their Constitutional rights will stop until this country’s rule of law comes from the Christian bible and the people are ruled by a theocracy along the lines of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.”

While it is incumbent upon us, especially in this political climate, to keep a close vigilance who is inhabiting the halls of our country’s government, it is becoming more and more important to work diligently to rid our state and local governmental entities of religious tyrants and their agendas.

For the good people of Kansas, knowing who these people are during this election cycle is the first hurdle. The next is up to you – get them out of your State House – send them all of them a strong message that their hatred and intolerance is not welcome in the Sunflower State.

ED SCHULTZ ASKS THE QUESTION – LEAH BURTON ANSWERS – CHUTZPAH!

schultz32009Congratulations to Ed Schultz! Finally, someone had the chutzpah to ask one of the most pressing questions facing the American people today – “how can these evangelicals call themselves “Christians” while advocating taking food away from four million poor Americans and preventing 30 million Americans from getting health care and using the Bible to justify it.”

Our very own good friend and authority on dominionism, Leah Burton from Gods Own Party?.com called into his show and gave his listeners some very good insight into what is behind the façade that these charlatans have erected.

Leah BurtonShe was quick to explain that what we are witnessing from the ReBiblicans in Congress is not the efforts of honest, mainstream Christians – these are the acts of a Dominionist group, cult-like in nature, who have steeple-jacked mainstream Christianity for their own personal gain.

Additionally, she explained that the Republican Party has been largely co-opted by these people and that they now have the reins of what she calls “the conservative political machine in America.”

Unlike mainstream Christians who are truly compassionate and humanitarian in nature, there is nothing altruistic about Dominionists. They hunger for power, domination, and control and prey upon the downtrodden, hence, the more people in need, the more eager they are to hear the “Good News,” and the easier it is to make them one of the flock.

Ed Schultz stood tall today. He posed the question that many of us have been asking in a venue that we do not have access to.

Leah Burton has devoted her life to exposing the truth behind the curtain that hides the ulterior motives of Christian Nationalism/Dominionism. Today she met the question head-on and continued to educate the American people to the dangers of allowing this cult to overtake our government and the democratic process.

A standing ovation is due to both Schultz and Burton. Let’s keep the conversation alive. Ask the question – answer the question – educate the public – speak out. Remember, SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE.

LARRY PRATT – THE SLEAZE OF CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM

LARRY PRATT – THE SLEAZE OF CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM

 

God and guns
Keep us strong
That’s what this country
Was founded on
Well we might as well give up and run
If we let them take our God and guns

(Lynyrd Skynyrd)

 

“Sleaze” is a very derogatory term, I know, and when used as a noun, it cuts right to the quick. That’s what I intended because the man of which I speak, in my opinion, is a despicable human being without an ounce of moral fiber, and zero redeeming qualities. He is nothing more than a racist, homophobic, bigoted extremist who poses great danger to the American way of life.

Larry PrattLarry Pratt is the 71 year-old executive director of Gun Owners of America (GOA). He is also president of English First, an organization which lobbies for English to be the only and official language of the United States; U.S. Border Control, an anti-immigration group; and Committee to Protect the Family. He has served on the board of the American Legislative Exchange Council and is a member of the Council For National Policy – both founded by Dominionist Paul Weyrich.

Gun Owners of America currently boasts of over 300,000 members and claims to be “the only no compromise gun-lobby in Washington.” The organization has been characterized as “eight lanes to the right of the NRA,” and I do believe that is an accurate description.

It is widely believed that Larry Pratt is the individual who brought the concept of citizen militias to the radical right. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Armed In 1990, Pratt wrote a book, Armed People Victorious, based on his study of “citizen defense patrols” used in Guatemala and the Philippines against Communist rebels — patrols that came to be known as death squads for their murderous brutality.

“Picturing these groups in rosy terms, Pratt advocated similar militias in the United States — an idea that finally caught on when he was invited for a meeting of 160 extremists, including many famous white supremacists, in 1992.

It was at that meeting, hosted in Colorado by white supremacist minister Pete Peters, that the contours of the militia movement were laid out.”

Peter J. PetersFor those unfamiliar with Pastor Pete Peters, he was a Christian Identity minister who ran the LaPorte Church of Christ in LaPorte, Colorado. In his convoluted Biblical interpretations he taught that the ten lost tribes of Israel were really Europeans and that contemporary Jews are Satanic imposters. According to Peters, Jews are spiritually degraded and pose a grave threat to civilization, and that blacks and other people of color are inferior to whites, that homosexuals should be executed and that northern European whites and their American descendants are the “chosen people” of scriptural prophecy.

The outreach arm of Peters’ “church” is known as Scriptures For America Worldwide, where they feature the Pistol and Rifle Prayers:

PISTOL PRAYER

Lord Jesus we pray, With Thy Authority we say,

DC Sorcery cease, Satanic strongholds release,

Baals be broken and bound, With all idols be cast down,

Stop the spells, Send the spell-casters into Hell,

Jesus cause it to be, And thank You for the victory!

 

RIFLE PRAYER

“A Mighty Weapon”

Lord Jesus in Thy name we pray,

With authority granted us this day.

All Baals of Babylon be torn down

We raze their temples to the ground.

Lay low their sacred groves, tear down all their strongholds

Let Satan’s Asherah cease. We dethrone, behead, defeat.

All ungodly powers, crushed beneath our feet

Their source of power, their symbols fall

At His words we speak by the King of all.

Their sorcery at our command will cease

Our Lord Jesus Christ has such decreed.

Victory in Jesus’ name, the power of DC has waned

Satanic strongholds release, the Remnant we set you free

The servants of God we set you free.

Idols, sorcery, spells they cast, We break your hold,

we break your back Your symbols in the streets you’ve laid

Will be your tomb for thus we pray.

In Jesus’ name we come, the Remnant shouts as one

Hear us our God we cry, let evil fail and die.

Let evil fail, let evil die.

Let no evil spell nor serpents bite,

Even touch Your remnant as we fight.

Cast down to Sheol, cast down to hell

All those that would charm and cast evil spells

Jerusalem be restored, we’ll walk on streets of gold

We bow on bended knee, before our Lord the King

Bow before Jesus Christ The King of Kings,

Bow before Jesus Christ The King of Kings.

He reigns, the King of Kings!

 

The theology of the Christian Identity Movement is explained thusly by the Anti-Defamation League:

The most extreme expression of Identity anti-Semitism is the so-called “two-seed” (or “seedliner”) theory, developed by Swift, his associates and his disciples in the 1960s. According to the two-seed theory, the seduction of Eve by the Serpent in Eden was sexual, Cain was the product of their liaison and Cain, in turn, was the father of the Jewish people; all Jews, therefore, are children of the devil, literally demonic. The other seedline in the two-seed scheme traces from Adam and Eve’s other son, Abel, through the lost tribes to today’s white European-derived believers. 

“One-seed” Identity adherents do not believe that Jews are physically descended from Satan, though in other respects they are no less anti-Semitic than the two-seedliners.

Many adherents, especially seedliners, also believe in pre-Adamic races. That is, they contend that Adam and Eve were not the first people created by God, but were the first created in God’s image. Other previous creations, not endowed with the divine likeness, were the forerunners of all the nonwhite peoples of the Earth, the “mud peoples,” who had no soul. Adam and Eve, and their Israelite descendants, were the first whites, a fact “proven” by the suggestion that the very name “Adam” means “to show blood,” or blush, which they claim is only possible for whites.

Pete Peters died a couple of years ago. After the arrests and convictions of many of their leaders as well as those of the neo-Nazi Movement, Christian Identity has been in decline with only a smattering of adherents left around the country. Those who were left, generally, either joined a militia, or the Tea Party. Several jumped into the political arena either by running for office or supporting various candidates on both the state and national level.

Larry Pratt first flew into my radar when I was researching the Christian Identity Movement back in 1999, when I first learned of his association with Pete Peters and the White Supremacist Movement. In that same year, the tragedy at Columbine High School took place, and Frank Brunni of the New York Times published a small article about Pratt who believes in absolutely no regulations on firearms – no waiting period, no background checks, and no trigger locks. According to Pratt, automatic weapons should be available for hunting, and he claimed that if those restrictions had not been in existence, many of the deaths might have been prevented.

Given the nature of Pratt’s politics and religion, I remember thinking that he and others like him were the last people I wanted to see turned loose with a firearm.

Over the course of the last decade, Gun Owners of America has more than doubled its membership. That alone should give cause for alarm. And, while he has always resided on the radical Christian right, Pratt has become much more strident in his message, and much more conspiratorial inclined.

In 2009, Pratt is credited with starting the rumor that Obamacare would create a data base of gun owners for future confiscation. After the claim was soundly debunked by numerous sources, Pratt continues to perpetuate the lie. Even more egregious is that others, such as Senator Rand Paul have chosen to further the theory.

Riding high on his notoriety, Pratt went even further last February when he appeared on the Talk to Solomon Show. Likening the discussion to “a dramatic reading of the Turner Diaries,” Huffington Post columnist Ian Reifowitz gives us this account:

“Pratt argued that President Obama is building his own private army and will send his agents “door to door” to “confiscate guns” — all to provoke a “violent confrontation” with gun owners.

“When the other right-wingers on the show went even further, stating that Obama’s goal was specifically to provoke a race war, Pratt agreed that Obama “would definitely be capable of something as evil as you were suggesting.”

Pratt envisions Obama as Nat Turner, Django Unchained, and a Black Panther all rolled into one.”

 

Indeed, he does. Additionally, he has now adopted the manipulative art of attempting to deflect his own racist views by projecting them upon others – something that all white nationalists engage in. Of course, we all know that white people and Christians face enormous oppression in this country, and this is all a master plan of the government. <sigh>

According to Pratt, who spoke on American Family Radio a couple of days ago, “… the attorney general, as well as the president, are racist, and they look at the world through the prism of race. The president, the first lady and Hillary Rodham Clinton are in fact trying to exploit the issue of race to “divide people” and cause “turmoil” in order to ultimately “bring collapse to the existing order” and “build their own communist society.” http://rightwingwatch.org

Pratt also postulates that Eric Holder is considering bringing civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in an effort to “intimidate the rest of the country so that we don’t think about defending ourselves against attacks by black mobs on white individuals.”

poker faceOn July 4, 2013, Larry Pratt was the headliner at Freedompalooza, an affair hosted by the band “Poker Face,” an anti-immigrant, anti-government, “Patriot” rock group led by extremist Paul Topete. Topete is a rabid anti-Semite and Holocaust denier. From the American Defamation League, we get a glimpse into who Paul Topete really is:

Under the moniker Pokerkid (aka pk), Paul Topete has posted several anti-Semitic comments to the Poker Face Online forum, some of which are included below [spelling and emphasis in original]:

  • Will somebody please stop this zionazi f–k from continuing to buy up all the media into the one global corp media monster. Its time to break up and sell his organization into a million pieces. And that it never is allowed to come back in any form again.
  • Very interesting where facts about the White Brotherhood pop up. The elite of the elite satanists are the white brotherhood. Made up of Sabbatean Jews at the top and Rosicrucian goys at the bottom. Anywhere from a 60/40 split to a more realistic 80/20 split with the Sabbateans in the drivers seat.
  • I am always amazaed at how many roads lead back to one of the largest if not THEE largest scam ever played on humanity… Yes that right… the HOLOHAUX aka holocaust. 1985 and 1988 Ernst Zundel [Holocaust denier] DESTROYED the Myth known as the cult of holohauzianity. In a canadien court of law, Ernst zundel took on the biggest frauds in the SHOAH Industry, and showed them to be the frauds that they were. Names like Raoul Hilberg and Vrba. And several other parasites known to infest this worldly sham. Wake up people, You are being played for fools for you LACK KNOWLEDGE.

An example of what their “music” is all about can be summed up in the song “Losing My Mind:”

It’s  time to hunt bankers, judges, lawyers and officials

Now you know we’ve got our eyes on you, so you better do things right;

or we’ll hang you from the highest trees, while we party thru the night.

Now it’s time to repatriate all the slave wagers invading our homeland

Then let’s  execute traitors who’ve been setting up the Global plan;

now they’re trying to take our guns away, so we have no means to fight….”

hal turner2The band is extremely popular with white supremacists and militia groups around the country. Early on they were featured on the Hal Turner talk show. Hal Turner was a white nationalist who hosted a radio talk show for years and was a featured speaker at neo-Nazi rallies across the country. He was a close ally of both Sean Hannity and Jared Taylor. Eventually, he was arrested for threatening three federal judges and sentenced to prison.

Gin Owners of America has become very active in political elections, pumping a lot of money and promotion into far-right-wing candidates. Much like the National Rifle Association, they rate current Congressional candidates. Their Political Victory Fund has successfully supported many of those ReBiblicans who currently hold office.

Larry Pratt embodies all of the negative qualities of those we find on the extremist right. He is a Dominionist. He is a racist and a bigot. He seeks power and fame. He is continuously given a platform from which to spew his toxic messages. He wields a lot of power in both the political and religious communities. He is an opportunist who exploits others and their acts of violence.

All of these things combine renders him a very dangerous person to our American society, and our very way of life. Consequently, it behooves all of us to keep our eyes upon Larry Pratt, and Gun Owners of America. A stamp of approval from either should be a red-flag on any candidate supported by them. As Hillary Clinton recently said, “Anyone who says that racial discrimination is no longer a problem in American elections must not be paying attention.” It’s rampant – from voting rights legislation, to the far right agenda, to the actual candidates. Everyone must start paying attention.

When All Else Fails – Play the Race Card

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS – PLAY THE RACE CARD

racismRemember when the Tea Party was showing their asses up and down Main Street, U.S.A.? Remember the signs – not just the misspelled ones, but the racist ones? Remember the sanctimonious protests that their movement wasn’t racist? Uh…huh – if you believed.

 After spending decades of my life as an activist working against organized hate groups, I think I am more than qualified in identifying and classifying people and groups as racist in nature, and I have been labeling, not only the Tea Party, but ReBiblicans, in general and these Dominionist flim-flam artists as racist hate-mongers for a while now.

After struggling for the last several years to foist their radical Biblical agenda on the American people, their frustration level hit a crescendo this week, and they all seemed to have some sort of epiphany that their fear tactics needed yet another boost. Why not scare the hell out of white people?

Now, we all know that white supremacist consider Caucasians to be superior to all other races, and that one of their many tactics in their tired old bag of tricks has been to use fear of other races to recruit others into their hateful fold. Their own fear of becoming a minority in this country and losing their “white privilege” is all consuming. And, they have used their fear tactics throughout the ages.

Dominionist and their supporters use fear, as well. And, while they attempt to masquerade themselves as all-loving, tolerant, up-standing citizens we all know that when the veil is lifted, we find intolerance and bigotry.

Thus far, these individuals have targeted homosexuals, women, liberals, progressives, Muslims, and atheists with their propaganda, rhetoric, and legislation. Taking on such issues as same-sex marriage, the right to choose, terrorism, and God’s wrath they have pulled out all of the stops in their campaign of fear and foreboding. Now, they have taken a page from the White Supremacist Bible – the oppression of white people.

glenn-beck-cryingAccording to Glenn Beck, (I hardly even want to mention this imposter), progressives and liberals have been engaged in actions to start a revolution in this country. The recent flap over the rodeo clown in Missouri who dressed up like Obama and suggested that he be trampled by a bull, and the fallout that followed is proof positive of modern day McCarthyism. After all, the clown, according to Beck, was a “very brave artist.”

larry klaymanLarry Klayman, Founder of Judicial Watch, weekly columnist for the right-wing rag, World Net Daily, and well-known “birther,” has, once again, jumped on the conspiracy train to warn all of us that President Obama is engaged in a massive attempt to “keep whitey and whitey’s allies down.” In his article Obama’s Mein Kampf  he makes the following claim: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/klayman/130814

“…perhaps it was Obama’s bigoted remarks after the George Zimmerman trial – where he effectively rejected the jury’s verdict of not guilty with a statement that he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago – that truly unmasked his hateful intentions to make “whitey” and the others pay back “his people” for prior discrimination. And, indeed, this is what is at the heart of NSA-gate; a means to keep whitey and whitey’s allies down as Obama dismantles and deconstructs the nation by having them pay their “fair share” in reparations.”

For decades, one of the most used weapons in the white supremacist propaganda chest was the notion that white people were going to be forced to pay reparations to the descendents of slaves in this country. This idea was meant to strike fear in the hearts of white tax-payers. Of course, the use of “whitey” in his column was deliberate in his attempt to create outrage, and the use of “his people” speaks volumes to Klayman’s obvious prejudices.

erik_rushBut, the racist venom didn’t stop there. Erik Rush is another World Net Daily nut. Immediately after the bombing of the Boston Marathon, assuming the bomber had to be Muslim, Rush tweeted the following:

“Everybody do the National Security Ankle Grab! Let’s bring more Saudis in without screening them! C’mon!”

Today, Erik Rush wrote a new column in which he postulated that the new Forrest Whitiker/Oprha Winfrey movie Lee Daniels: The Butler is meant to “stoke anti-white violence.”

“…there is little doubt that the film will be used in the ongoing effort to rile black Americans. As I’ve said in the past, racial tension is one of the many circuits the administration has constructed that, when completed, may be used to initiate widespread civil unrest at the president’s push of a button.”

“There have been quite a few instances of black-on-white violent crime since Obama came into office; these have gone largely unreported by the establishment press for reasons that should be obvious. The point is that some blacks have become sufficiently motivated to perpetrate these crimes, and it is all – all – due to the lies into which they have subscribed.”

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/erik-rush-obama-and-oprah-will-use-butler-stoke-anti-white-violence#sthash.EFVCY2Ed.dpuf

Yet another chapter from the playbook has been unearthed. The old mantra of black on white crime, as well as riots in the streets, is a staple of the white nationalist crowd. A thinking person would know that if “Mandingo” or “A Time to Kill” didn’t create a civil uprising, the chances are a movie about a White House butler probably won’t either. But, then we ARE talking about last ditch efforts from those who would best be accomodated by life in an asylum.

JESSE-PETERSON-PHOTOThen there is Jesse Lee Peterson, the African-American darling of the Tea Party, and the founder of The Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND). On September 21, 2005, Peterson penned a column for WorldNetDaily, in which he suggested the majority of the African-American people stranded in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina were “welfare-pampered”, “lazy” and “immoral”.

Peterson believes that Islam is an evil religion and that Muslims hate us because we are, after all, a Christian nation. According to Wikipedia:

“He has also claimed, “Barack Obama hates white people, especially white men” and “Barack Obama is Jeremiah Wright Jr. He is the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus! He embodies the aspirations of every left-wing black group that wants to tear down this country and take power away from the “oppressive” white man. He’s not an obvious race hustler like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson; but Obama is a smooth pathological liar—with a wicked heart” Peterson has also thanked “God and white people” for slavery adding if it weren’t for the slave trade, blacks might have never made it to the promise land and described slave ships as akin to “being on a crowded airplane”. Peterson is friends with Sean Hannity and is a frequent guest on his TV show.

“He has said women should not be allowed to vote:

“Women cannot handle power. It’s not in them to handle power in the right way. […] I think that one of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote. We should’ve never turned this over to women. […] It was a big mistake. […] And these women are voting in the wrong people. They’re voting in people who are evil who agrees [sic] with them who’re gonna take us down this pathway of destruction. And this probably was the reason they didn’t allow women to vote when men were men. Because men in the good old days understood the nature of the woman. They were not afraid to deal with it. And they understood that, you let them take over, this is what would happen.”

Yesterday, Peterson was interviewed by the Los Angeles Times where he claims that most black Americans are suffering from a lack of moral character – not racism and that most black people are racist toward whites. He also believes that the Civil Rights Act didn’t do enough to protect white people:

The problem with the Civil Rights Act of 1965, Peterson tells the Times, is that it didn’t “protect white folks” against “black racism.”

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/jesse-lee-peterson-civil-rights-act-didn-t-do-enough-protect-white-people#sthash.Pz5FIJzS.dpuf

Perpetuating the myth that white people in this country are being oppressed on a daily basis is the stock and trade of the White Nationalist. While Peterson doesn’t fit the bill because of his race, he has no problem with furthering the message to maintain his standing within the extremist community. I doubt that he realizes how expendable to that crowd he really is. However, Peterson et.al. have become useful tools to those who are attempting to bamboozle the public into believing that they couldn’t possibly be racist pigs.

Sandy riosThe next outfit to signal their racist discontent was none other than the American Family Association which has already been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law center. Talk-show host, Sandy Rios sounded the alarm about Obamacare and Muslims in Michigan. According to Rios, Obama resettled “thousands of Palestinian refugees in the United States once he became president – a rumor long since proven erroneous – but, it makes for good right-wing radio. Here is a little clip from her rant:

“I think it is frightening because they are Islamists and they are in the heart of our country, and now they are qualified for food stamps as well. We know that in Michigan, Muslim men have multiple wives even though we don’t allow that in this country. They do still practice it so they go in and sign up for food assistance…. Is Arabic going to be the new language—how many languages are we going to have that are going to be officially acknowledged in America?”

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/sandy-rios-fears-food-stamps-will-aid-islamists-and-palestinian-refugees-obama-didnt-resettl#sthash.Tfp2SyqX.dpuf

Once again, using the scare tactics that “American culture” is going to be changed, and that other etnicities are threatening our language and our way of life is simply one of the old, tired arguments of groups like the Klan, the neo-Nazi’s, the old White Citizens Party, the Council of Conservative Citizens, etc.

So, what has caused this recent spate of racist rhetoric from the extremist right? Generally speaking, only the most in-your-face, groups of organized racists speak in such caustic and despicable terms, while the closet racists, right-wing pundits, and political hopefuls keep their poker faces and attempt to defraud the public.

Also generally speaking, the extremist right has made very little headway this year in furthering their insidious agenda. What little they have accomplished has met with a great deal of derision, and in some cases, court rulings against their pernicious attempts. Consequently, their frustration has, perhaps, resulted in a dropping of the mask allowing their true colors to emerge. Desperation can sometimes cause fools to become even more foolish. As we have all witnessed before, when all else fails, as it has, they play the race card. That’s what it’s always been about, anyway.

A CONGRESSMAN, A COUPLE OF WHITE SUPREMACISTS, AND AN ASSAULT RIFLE – OH MY!

A CONGRESSMAN, A COUPLE OF WHITE SUPREMACISTS, AND AN ASSAULT RIFLE – OH MY!

Just An Inside Glimpse At the Mindset of Extremist Right-Wing Politics

SteveStockmanReturning Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) has some new friends, at least we think they are new. You know, he couldn’t have picked a more disreputable group of people to run around with, but then he really isn’t the sharpest pencil in the box.

 Stockman was born and raised in Michigan, but migrated to Texas – which is a pretty good place for a born-again, Southern Baptist, Christian extremist. I’m sure he fits right in with the Rick Perry crowd.  He previously served for a couple of years in the House of Representatives back in 1995-1997. He lost his next bid for the seat in a run-off election.

After his brief stint in Congressman he took a faculty job with the uber-conservative Leaderhip Institute where he was engaged in training young people in right-wing extremism.

Bushmaster AR15Now he’s back. Having won a seat in Congress again, Stockman has been plying his trade as an extremist extraordinaire. Upset with Obama after the Sandy Hook school shootings and his belief that the President’s number one agenda is to take everyone’s guns away, Stockman decided to fight back. On his website he held a drawing for a free Bushmaster AR15 Rifle to be given away on Independence Day.

His campaign website also offers bumper stickers that read, “If babies had guns, they wouldn’t be aborted.”

Well, ever the zealot, Steve Stockman has now hooked up with Michael Peroutka’s Institute on the Constitution as well as Larry Pratt’s Gun Owners of America. Stockman, along with the two groups has filed an Amicus Brief in United States v. Abramski.

The case is one based around Abramski giving false information when purchasing a firearm. According to the complaint:

“When his uncle, Angel Alvarez, expressed a desire for a Glock 19 handgun, Bruce Abramski offered to make the purchase. As a former police officer, Abramski received a professional discount for the gun purchase that his uncle was not eligible for. When making the purchase, Abramski filled out ATF Form 4473, which contained several “yes-or-no” questions. One of the questions asked whether he was the actual purchaser of the firearm. The question also stated, “Warning: You are not the actual buyer if you are acquiring the firearm(s) on behalf of another person. If you are not the actual buyer, the dealer cannot transfer the firearm(s) to you.” Abramski answered “yes” to the question, buying the Glock 19 for his uncle. Alvarez mailed Abramski a check for the price of the handgun, and Abramski transferred the weapon to his uncle in Pennsylvania through a licensed firearms dealer.”

 Abramski pled guilty, but reserved his right to appeal, which is what he is doing. The Amicus Brief, in short, makes the following claim:

“At the heart of the Government’s case against Mr. Abramski is a “straw purchase” theory based neither in law nor regulation that it is impermissible for a person to purchase a firearm from an FFL if the transferee is acting as an agent for a third party, who furnished the funds for the purchase, even if both parties are eligible under state and federal law to possess a firearm.”

The rub isn’t that Abramski is appealing, or that Stockman and others filed the brief. The problem with all of this is that a United States Congressman has teamed up with individuals and organizations known to be White Supremacists.

Michael PeroutkaMichael Peroutka is a high-ranking board member in the League of the South. For a description of the LOS, we turn to the Southern Poverty Law Center which has this to say:

“The League of the South is a neo-Confederate group that advocates for a second Southern secession and a society dominated by “European Americans.” The league believes the “godly” nation it wants to form should be run by an “Anglo-Celtic” (read: white) elite that would establish a Christian theocratic state and politically dominate blacks and other minorities. Originally founded by a group that included many Southern university professors, the group lost its Ph.D.s as it became more explicitly racist. The league denounces the federal government and northern and coastal states as part of “the Empire,” a materialist and anti-religious society.”

From the LOS website:

“We also encourage individuals and families to personally secede from the corrupt and corrupting influence of post-Christian culture in America. We call this ‘abjuring the realm,’ and it’s a real and dramatic first step all of us can take by simply withdrawing our support of and allegiance to a regime that has imperiled our future. … Once our Southern culture is re-established, then the political issues will begin to take care of themselves. Good leaders flow naturally out of a healthy culture; however, power-hungry, self-seeking politicians are all we can expect from the debased cultural climate we have today.”

Peroutka’s Institute On The Constitution claims that its mission is to “help individuals across America to understand and appreciate their own history and heritage by reacquainting them with the worldview and vision of our Founding Fathers. Michael Peroutka’s “worldvision” is that of a dominionist Christian. According to Peroutka, the Separation of Church and State “refers to the fact that the jurisdiction and functions of these two God-ordained institutions are separate and distinct from each other. What it doesn’t mean that either of these institutions is independent from God and His law.”

It’s interesting to note that in the 2008 Presidential elections Perouka was being considered for Ron Paul’s Vice Presidential pick.

Larry PrattLarry Pratt and Gun Owner’s of America ranks right up there with Peroutka and his cult. In many ways, Pratt is even more of a threat. The Southern Poverty Law Center tells us:

“Larry Pratt, a gun rights absolutist whose Gun Owners of America (GOA) has been described as “eight lanes to the right” of the National Rifle Association, may well be the person who brought the concept of citizen militias to the radical right.

“In 1990, Pratt wrote a book, Armed People Victorious, based on his study of “citizen defense patrols” used in Guatemala and the Philippines against Communist rebels — patrols that came to be known as death squads for their murderous brutality.

“Picturing these groups in rosy terms, Pratt advocated similar militias in the United States — an idea that finally caught on when he was invited for a meeting of 160 extremists, including many famous white supremacists, in 1992.

“It was at that meeting, hosted in Colorado by white supremacist minister Pete Peters, that the contours of the militia movement were laid out.

“Pratt, whose GOA has grown since its 1975 founding to some 150,000 members today, hit the headlines in a big way when his associations with Peters and other professional racists were revealed, convincing arch-conservative Pat Buchanan to eject him as a national co-chair of Buchanan’s 1996 presidential campaign.

“The same year, it emerged that Pratt was a contributing editor to a periodical of the anti-Semitic United Sovereigns of America, and that his GOA had donated money to a white supremacist attorney’s group.

“Pratt is today close to the extremist Constitution Party and its radical theology.”

The “radical theology” that they have ascribed to the Constitution Party is, decidedly, Dominionist. Interestingly, Pratt has served as a board member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), as well as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. He comes to us straight out of the Dominionist, and secretive, Council for National Policy.

On another side note, Pratt is a close ally of Ron Paul and supported him in his bid for President. According to Ron Paul Gun Owner’s of America is “The only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington.”

Gun Owner’s of America currently has over 300,00 members.

Steve Stockman is the sterotypical ReBiblican politician. His campaign endorsements read like a who’s who of the extremist right, including: Tim & Beverley LaHaye; Richard Viguerie; Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association (Another hate group); Michael Farris, Founder of the Home School Legal Defense Fund and Patrick Henry College; Ted Nugent; and Pastor Chuck Baldwin.

This is who Texans in the 36th Congressional District elected to represent them. There are over 200 others who grace our House of Representatives with their radical, extremist presence. In truth, it should scare the hell out of any sane, rational American. We can only hope that the next election will change the encroaching Christian Nationalist ideology that continues to erode our liberties and our very way of life.

UNITED STATES REBIBLICANS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

UNITED STATES REBIBLICANS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

 

On November 4, 2014, voters will, once again, have the opportunity to vote for the candidates of their choice in both the United States House and Senate races. There will be 33 Senate seats up for grabs and all of the House seats.There are currently 41 Senators who have made our list of “ReBiblicans.” Of those 41, there are 15 running for re-election. Until filing time we won’t have an accurate picture of the number who will be vying for the other 18. It is incumbent upon the electorate to know who these individuals are and what they stand for.

There are 435 members of the House of Representatives. Of those 435 there are 217 who have met our criteria to be considered “ReBiblican.” This means that, while they might not be true Dominionists, they proffer, support, vote for, and promote legislation that infringes upon civil and human rights, and they pander to Dominionist groups and organizations. The criteria that we use is as follows:

  1. They      perpetuate the war on women
  2. They      are anti-Affirmative Action
  3. They      are against same-sex marriage and adoptions
  4. They      are against the separation of church and state
  5. They      believe that the United States      is a Christian Nation
  6. They      believe in faith-based initiatives
  7. They      believe in an absolute right to gun-ownership
  8. They      believe in the privatization of public education and social services
  9. They      are against providing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers
  10. They      believe in an expansion of the military and further insurgency
  11. They      foster hatred toward Muslims
  12. They      consistently vote in a manner that furthers the Dominionist agenda

Now, it should be noted that embracing one or two of these beliefs does not make them a ReBiblican. They must consistently cling to at least four of these, and either author or support legislation that furthers this agenda. That not only means that some who are not on the list are “marginal” at best, but that those who are on the list present a clear and present danger to the American way of life.

Below you will find a list of the 217 members of the House of Representatives who have met the criteria, and who will be up for re-election in 2014. We have a great opportunity to unseat these individuals.  Our next endeavor will be to identify those in various state elections – a mammoth task.
