The Culture War for Young Minds and Hearts

      The War of Education - Dr. Bruce R. Porter

Recently I spoke at Veritas Christian School at their annual fundraising event. My message, while pointed and factual, sought to shine a light on the serious importance of a Christian education in the midst of a culture that seems entirely committed to eradicating all expressions of Christian faith and the establishing of a socialist/Humanist secular state in America.

It was tremendously gratifying to learn later from a staff member that the response to the fundraising appeal broke all previous records.

Obama’s Intention: Destroy Israel

By: Bruce R. Porter D.Div.

Finally, a voice of reason and clarity regarding the true agenda of Barack Hussein Obama. Dr. Richard L. Rubinstein is a Yale fellow, “Distinguished Professor of the Year,” with an earned PhD from Harvard.  Dr. Rubinstein lays bare what he believes to be  president Obama’s intention to “correct the historical mistake of the creation of the state of Israel.”

One can only marvel that Obama won nearly 78% of the Jewish vote in America in spite of the clear indications of his deep affinity for Islam. There are polls now indicating that this voter-bloc has eroded considerably as Obama’s true agenda toward Israel emerges.

Turn up your speakers and listen carefully to this scholar’s cogent evaluation of Obama’s radical agenda. Then, make sure you’re registered to vote this November. We cannot allow this agenda to succeed, and the time is now to chose which side you’re on. May God’s mercy be upon us, our children, and our nation!

Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away

After America, There is No Place to Go

 (Comment by Bruce Porter)
For several months, I’ve not written much into this blog site. With each passing day, I grow more appalled at the socialist/Marxist direction our country is taking. The Obama regime is, I’m convinced, on a course to transform our beloved Republic into a socialist nightmare.

It is now abundantly clear that Obama’s guiding star is Marxism, but sadly, few people today really appreciate what that means, having been educated by the public brainwashing system we call “Public Schools.” Some will dismiss, as they always do, such statements, preferring to live in denial. However, unless our people wake up and vote these power-hungry mavens of Marxism out of power this November, I fear we will slip into an era of darkness unparallel in human history.

The article below was written by a woman who witnessed the takeover of her country in the 30s by Hitler. There are terrifying parallels to her story and what we are experiencing in the United States today. Can it happen here? Your life and the lives of your family may depend on how you answer that question. Read the article through and decide for yourself.

Truly is the Greatest Country in the World.
Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away

By: Kitty Werthmann

 What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will ever read in history books.

I believe that I am an eyewitness to history.  I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.  We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote..  I’ve never read that in any American publications.  Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression.  Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed.  We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily.  Young people were going from house to house begging for food.  Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.  My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need.  Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.

The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other.  Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna, Linz, and Graz were destroyed.  The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.

We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.  We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.  Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group — Jewish or otherwise.  We were led to believe that everyone was happy.  We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family.  Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades.  The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.

After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order.  Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed.  The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women.  Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home.  An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family.  Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

Hitler Targets Education –
Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

Our education was nationalized.  I attended a very good public school.  The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore.  Instead, we sang “Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,” and had physical education.

Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance.  Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum.  They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time.  The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.  The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination.  The rest of the day we had sports.  As time went along, we loved it.  Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.  We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

My mother was very unhappy. 

When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent.  I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful.  There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.  I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it.  Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home.  I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.  Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me.  They lived without religion.  By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.  It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly.  As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

Equal Rights Hits Home:

In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established.  All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps.  At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

Soon after this, the draft was implemented.  It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps.  During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.  They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps.  After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.  When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.  Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack.  I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare: 

When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers.  You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government.  The state raised a whole generation of children..  There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology.  By this time, no one talked about equal rights.  We knew we had been had.

Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:

Before Hitler, we had very good medical care.  Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna.  After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone.  Doctors were salaried by the government.  The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.  If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn.  There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine.  Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and immigrated to other countries.

As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income.  Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household.  We had big programs for families.  All day care and education were free.  High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized.  Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

We had another agency designed to monitor business.  My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.  Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners.  Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar.  He couldn’t meet all the demands.  Soon, he went out of business.  If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

We had consumer protection.  We were told how to shop and what to buy.  Free enterprise was essentially abolished.  We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers.  The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“Mercy Killing” Redefined:

In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps.  The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.  So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded.  When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.  I knew one, named Vincent, very well.  He was a janitor of the school.  One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.  I asked my superior where they were going.  She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write.  The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.  They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death.  The villagers were not fooled.  We suspected what was happening.  Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months.  We called this euthanasia.

The Final Steps – Gun Laws: 

Next came gun registration.  People were getting injured by guns.  Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns.  Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms.  Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns.  The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

No more freedom of speech. 

Anyone who said something against the government was taken away.  We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria.  Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath.  Instead, we had creeping gradualism.  Now, our only weapons were broom handles.  The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.

After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria.  Women were raped, preteen to elderly.  The press never wrote about this either.  When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process.  They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn’t destroy, they burned.  We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses.  Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized.  Those who couldn’t paid the price.  There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians.  This is an eye witness account.

“It’s true… those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“After America, There is No Place to Go”

Death of the Dollar: Is It Intentional?

By Bruce Porter

Have you noticed lately how much more basic necessities cost than they did even a few years ago? Does it seem like your dollars just aren’t worth as much? Have you ever wondered why?

Back in the late 70s and 80s (for those of you old enough to remember) grocery and department stores displayed big banners depicting some guy smashing down a dollar sign with a sledge-hammer with the bold words “Inflation Buster Prices” printed on it. Every store boasted that all we needed to do to beat inflation was shop in their store where their prices were “inflation busting.” This was nonsense of course because the dirty little secret that few of us knew then is that inflation is caused by printing money! Under the Carter administration, the Federal Reserve was printing hundreds of billions of dollars in worthless paper! As manufacturers caught on to the inflated money supply, they would raise their prices to make up the difference in the perceived value of the money.

Lately, I’ve formed another very different image of the little man with the sledge-hammer. He’s still smashing the dollar sign, but this time he’s from the Federal Reserve and he’s actually destroying the dollar!

The chart and video series below is something I suspect the Federal Reserve would rather you wouldn’t see. The reason is, if you see it and actually understand it, (assuming you have educated yourself beyond pabulum they gave you in public school) YOUR HEAD WILL EXPLODE AND BLOOD WILL SQUIRT OUT OF YOUR EYES!!

All I can say is, we the people of the United States have been systematically and deliberately ROBBED! I can’t tell you what to do about it. Perhaps you should consider investing your shrinking dollars into something tangible that you can hold in your hands. I can’t advise you further because I’m not a financial advisor. What I DO know is, before we try to do anything, we must become better informed about what is going on in our nation’s capitol. It appears that we are being governed by a mixture of incompetents and malicious “players” who are using our banking system to enslave us!

I will even go farther… I am convinced that a relatively small “power elite” are deliberately trying to destroy the economy of the United States in order to fully implement their plan for a global government and economy controlled by themselves. If they aren’t stopped, we will experience a global social/economic disaster beyond anything seen in history. Obama is only a puppet in the larger agenda. Far more powerful and sinister forces are pulling his strings, and orchestrating his decisions. The fact that he may be a willing “useful idiot” in the establishment of this “New World Order,” is unimportant.

American Capitalism Gone With a Whimper?

From Dr. Bruce Porter:

A friend sent the following article to me. I was understandably skeptical of its veracity and did some checking. According to Snopes.com, this is TRUE. I do not entirely trust snopes since the couple who run that site are liberals and often skew their “findings” to favor Barack Obama. Since this verification is coming from a hostile source, I am therefore inclined to believe it. If you care to, you can jump over to Pravda’s site and see for yourself. Click HERE view the original article.

I have been trying to warn people since last summer before the election that Barack Hussein Obama is a dangerous man. I knew he was a far-left ideologue, and even the drive-by media acknowledged it. As revelations began to come to light about his close associations with people like William Ayers, (an avowed Marxist-Leninist, famous for his Weather Underground activities and participation in terrorist bombings in the 60s) and the “Rev” Wright, a Marxist “Liberation Theology” proponent and racist, I knew that Obama’s fascination with Marxism was real.

An Eye-Opening Experience

In 2006, I was a guest speaker at Obama’s High School, an elite private school in Honolulu called Punahou School. Punahou was originally a Christian missionary school, built on land granted in 1829 by Queen Ka’ahumanu. The school opened in 1842 with 15 students. Children of missionaries soon caused the school to grow quickly. Punahou is now a huge campus, with students from all over the world. Their most famous alumni however, is Barack Hussein Obama.

When I began my series of lectures, which were to cover an entire week to students in the middle grades to High School, things seemed to go well. My subject matter was the virtues of using our education, wealth, and life advantages for the betterment of mankind, serving, and ultimately reaching the world with the love and good news of the Messiah Yeshua. Trouble began when I was told by the campus Chaplains that I was not to “preach” to the children, or speak of Yeshua too much. I thought this peculiar, since this was originally a believer’s school founded by missionaries. The Chaplain staff actually seemed to be walking in fear of “offending” any of the “diversity” in the student body, and I was told that the school welcomes Buddhists, Shintoists, Muslims, etc. etc. When I was given a tour of the campus and met some of the faculty, it quickly became clear that I was in the midst of the most politically-correct, left-leaning, enviromentally activist school I’ve ever encountered. It was difficult to discern anyone who would actually admit to being a true Judeo/Christian believer. I’m not exagerating.

Well, two days into my lecture series, in which I made efforts to not “offend” anyone, the hammer fell. I was suddenly informed that a “special meeting” was set up with the school president and his principal staffers. The Chaplain who invited me seemed to be near to panic. I asked him what was going on, and he told me in hushed tones that “an article” I had written on my website, which was critical of radical Islam, had come to the president’s attention and was causing an uproar. Members of the Islamic community had written a letter of complaint because of my “attitudes” and wanted me fired and put off the campus.

I won’t go into detail about my meeting that afternoon in the plush offices of Punahou’s president and the principals of the grade levels, but if you picture the “inquisition” debacle that took place at the confirmation hearings of Judge Clarence Thomas, or the roast that Lt.Col Ollie North endured, you’d have a pretty good idea. (Disclaimer: I in no way think of myself as equal to, or ‘on-par’ with, these great men. I’m only trying to give you a mental picture of what I was subjected to.) They were outraged, waving a print-out of the offending article, and decrying my “Islamophobia.” Although I tried to explain to them that my article was directed entirely toward “radical” Islamics, and at no time had I even mentioned the subject in my lectures to the students, to these men, my mere presence on campus as a guest lecturer was absolutely intolerable. (So much for the left’s “tolerance.”) It was clear that “my kind” was an unwelcome blot on Punahou’s reputation, and the LAST thing they wanted to do was “offend” the many Islamic parents whose children attended the school. As a result, in order to not offend the “Muslim Community,” I was summarily dismissed, all remaining lectures cancelled, and asked to leave the campus. Score one for Mohammed.

This painful incident gave me tremendous insights into their famous former student, Obama. If  this was the atmosphere he was nurtured in and indoctrinated with, then it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest that he had embraced the most radical ideaologies. Suffice to say, I believe, based on this and many, many other evidences, that Barack Hussein Obama is a Marxist who cleverly ran a “stealth” campaign as a “moderate” in order to gain the most powerful office in our nation. I’m also convinced that he is moving at break-neck speed to destroy the United States as a Constitutional Republic and replace it with Communism.

There are yet those who will read this, continue to close their eyes and minds, and reject not only what I said, but also seek to marginalize me. So be it. I’m confident of my position, and well-aware that one day I may have to pay a dear price for my love of America and all she stands for. I shall take my place proudly at the side of brave men and women who fought, prayed, and died in the service of this wonderful nation, blessed by God. We’ve come a long way, and while it is true that many of us have lost our way and given place to greed, corruption, and evil, the dream is still alive. Maybe, just maybe we can find our way back to the greatness that once honored God and liberated untold millions from the cruel boot of oppression and slavery.

Obama-Lenin
American capitalism--Gone with a whimper

Pravda-logo

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
 
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years.

The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was… But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
 
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elite’s and betters.
 
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics.

Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives.

The leftist citizens of America care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. (Eat, drink & be merry)  Then these ignorant leftist turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy.”

Pride blinds the foolish.
 
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another.  Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power.

Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
 
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama.

His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world!

If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not,  America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
 
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars.

These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison.
 
These thieves, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another.

They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.
 
Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, this self-anointed American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.
 
So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, Obama’s Czars would happily try and redesign the whole of the world, too.

Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, as it only leads to disaster.

Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing as compared to these ‘foolish, drunken Russians’, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.
 
Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but still a “freeman” whimper….so far.
 
So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses?

Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert cavorting in his ‘Marxist enlightenment’, has led this effort. He bleats this only affects companies that receive government monies. However it is actually retroactive and thus would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive…which basically includes ALL businesses.
 
The Russian owners of American companies and industries should carefully consider closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of Red America as fast as possible.
 In other words, divest while there is still value left.

Unjustifiability proud Americans will go down into their pit of slavery without a fight, beating their chest and proclaiming to the world, how free they really are. The world will only snicker at their stupidity.
