Popular mythology has depicted the Devil as a horned creature with red skin and Darth Maul eyes. We are conditioned to think of Satan as a big monster with claws, a tail, and pointed teeth. No wonder we’d be scared of that.

But what if Lucifer was a benign looking guy or gal who seemed just as normal as your next door neighbor? What if Beelzebub really is “The Great Deceiver”? Maybe it is worth rethinking our concept of O-Yama, Pluto, Dracula, Shiva, Tezcatlipoca, or simply The Devil.

“By their fruits ye shall know them”

To identify anybody’s nature the easiest method is to look at the effect they have on the world around them. If they generate hatred, fear, accusation, anger and judgment of others then chances are real good you’re looking at your opponent. No matter what they say, it is what they do that matters. Not their intentions, their outcomes.

Edgar Guest wrote: “The best of all the teachers are the ones who live their creeds. For to see the good in action is what everybody needs. I may misunderstand you and all the high advice you give, but there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.”

The poster boy of evil for the past 100 years has been Adolph Hitler. We see his angry face and silly mustache with his arm raised in a “Sieg Heil” salute. That looks bad enough, but by itself it’s nothing. Then we look at the piles of human remains at the death camps in Auschwitz and elsewhere and we KNOW that he was evil. His words were strategically chosen by himself and Goebbels to woo the people into following him and believing that he would bring a brighter day. But look at these words from his book Mein Kampf: (as quoted by Ravi Zacharaias in his book Can Man Live Without God?)

He said he wanted to rid the world of “the stupid and degrading fallacies of conscience and morality”. He wanted to raise up a generation of young warriors before whom the world would cower in fear. He wanted to train them to be capable of any violence without reservation or hesitance. Let that sink in. Without conscience and morality we are just animals no different from hyenas, vultures, wolves, or rats. Just intelligent, sentient eating machines concerned only about survival and pleasure.

So, if you were in charge of committing the worst evil deeds and needed to reduce resistance before taking bold action, then where would you start? Now, assume for this exercise that you are trying to turn the entire country and ultimately the entire world toward evil. To do so you’d have to eliminate the major sources of push-back first.

Satanic Campaign strategies:

  1. Look harmless. Hitler looked like just an ordinary guy, not a scary person, at first.
  2. Sound nice and helpful. Tell people you are there to save them. Say what they want to hear.
  3. Champion those who feel left out or harmed. Find victims to save. Express empathy and outrage on behalf of others who need a hero.
  4. If people don’t feel like victims then convince them that they are and didn’t realize it. Show them how they’ve been wronged and deserve to be compensated.
  5. Control the education of the next generations, then introduce your new concepts before they are old enough to know otherwise.
  6. Control the survival mechanisms (healthcare, medical services, insurance, disease control, food distribution, access to money).
  7. Control public policy. Get your minions elected to office at all levels, especially local and state. Appoint others to regulatory roles. Put your people into the election operations and court systems plus vital agencies.
  8. Weaken your opponents e.g. Police, Politicians, Parents, Churches, etc. Make them seem dangerous, out of touch and not to be taken seriously.
  9. Create a threat that you can rescue people from. Perhaps a pandemic or a climate issue that is too big to resolve. Or bankrupt the entire system so that everyone is desperate for a rescuer…you.
  10. Challenge anything that perpetuates or enables self-reliance (you need for people to depend on you).
  11. Eliminate religion by first making it unpopular and then adversarial to your good intentions. Faith is your enemy. People who have hope don’t need a rescuer.
  12. Assure that you are NOT judged by your results. Only be judged by your words and your good intentions.
  13. Take away freedoms in stages so that people get used to being controlled.
  14. Assume complete ownership of private property and only grant essential privileges to those who obey.

The Nazi guards at the trains told the Jews, who they were crowding into the cattle cars, that the trip would be short, there would be jobs and shelter at their destination, that families could stay together and they would be safe from the marauding enemies coming to attack them. (See Andy Andrews’ excellent book for details.) Upon arrival at the death camps, they were separated by gender and age, shuttled off to gas chambers or work stations and all belongings including long hair and gold teeth were taken from them. Why did they get on the trains? They believed the great deceiver’s lies.

That was history, what about now?

Who’s on each side today? Well, let’s look at what they are supporting and selling. You make the call. If someone is all about “justice” and making people pay for their crimes then clearly judgment is at the core of their intentions. If they hate others and demonize or scorn those who disagree with them, if they encourage angry confrontation and exclusion of people then it’s pretty clear they aren’t coming from the light. If everything is considered stained with racism then everyone is guilty of something. (Don’t worry they will save you.)

Much attention has been given to the book Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky. It is a handbook for those who seek to overthrow a government or control a social group. But there is one sinister fact about his book that isn’t so often noticed. He dedicated it to Lucifer! He openly, in print for the world to see, dedicated his book to the author of evil. And seems to have gotten away with it without major push back. What???? How can this be?

Schools in America have approved and even taught Alinsky’s concepts while banning Dr. Seuss for implied racial references. Pause to really consider that. Alinsky vs Seuss and it’s the beloved children’s author that gets banned. “Implied” vs actual. Good vs Evil. We are becoming numb to this because it’s been stated so often in the press. People say, “It’s no big deal. They don’t have bad intentions, so it’s OK.”

More people have suffered under the open border policies of Biden than ever under the build the fence, stay in Mexico policies of Trump’s team. People yelled at and accused Trump but his actions and policies worked very well. Biden says good words, claims that all is well, but millions are suffering because of his position. He convinces people he’s in favor of immigration to rescue others and give them opportunity. But in fact he is in favor of random invasion without consequences.

The Numbing of America, Learned Apathy.

A few weeks ago I wrote an article on how we become numb to outrage and learn to be apathetic about truly outrageous and audacious acts. The riots in Portland, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Los Angeles and Philadelphia are one example. They were so extreme, so violent, so lawless and destructive that we became numb to them after a few weeks because nobody knew what to do. Then Satan’s team began a campaign of deceit to make us believe that the Washington DC Capitol riot was the worst of all of them. Statistically it was the least damaging, the least violent, and the shortest lived among them, but that didn’t matter. The goal was to get us to believe that no worse sin had ever been committed than the January 6th riot. One person died, Ashli Babbitt, killed by Capitol police officer Lt. Mike Byrd, but the reports would have you believe that many died at the hands of the rioters. Not true. (P.S. Byrd is the same officer who left his loaded Glock pistol in a Capitol men’s room in 2019. An unforgivable sin for a police officer or soldier. He evidently has gotten a pass.)

Biden and friends keep repeating the lie that January 6th was an armed insurrection and that five or more were killed. Only one was killed and she was an unarmed protestor, not a violent rioter. John Sullivan, the Antifa organizer who incited much of the riot was standing next to her when she was murdered by Lt. Byrd. None of the protestors that day were armed. Nobody else died from the riot. But the claims continue. Evil people know that a lie, often repeated, becomes accepted as truth. Even years later this can be used because people remember the headlines, not the articles. So they forget that the facts were different from the claims and they revive the old lies as truths. They say, “We all remember that (repeat the disproven lies)…” Or you can put your satanic icon on a T-shirt and tell folks that it is a symbol of fighting for the good of “the people.” Murderous Marxist Che Guevarra is one such example. Alberto Korda’s photo of Che has become known worldwide.

Have you noticed that every evil regime in recent memory has named itself the “People’s Democracy” or some such benign sounding name?

Another of the dark-side tricks is to add blaming labels onto any mention of your competitor. When mentioning Trump they always add, “the one who incited the riot”. That’s not true but they don’t care about whether it’s true. Or they say “twice impeached” Trump, yet the impeachments were not based on truth. The Mueller investigation could not find any evidence of Russian collusion, but that didn’t stop the claims that it was true. The second impeachment, post presidency and only done to stain him, wasn’t even debated or adjudicated, they just passed it and had a party afterward to dance on his political grave.

The National Debt

The US Debt Clock is a novelty we all have seen. I have no idea whether it is truly credible or accurate but I do know that it is alarming. We, as a nation, are now so far in debt that there is no way we can pay it off. Heck, we can barely generate enough to pay the interest on it!

https://usdebtclock.org

Back to the sinister plan, if you can bankrupt the country then everyone becomes desperate. They need you to rescue them just so they can survive. Forget political differences, this is about food, shelter, safety and hope. Once you have them in that position (see prewar Germany again or study Russia’s revolution around the same time), then they’ll accept a harmless sounding leader who cares about them and will take care of them. No horns or tails needed, just a pleasant person who is outraged on their behalf and who will “make the guilty pay for their crimes.”

Then what does Satan look like? He looks like something desirable: a champion, a new friend, an insider on your side, a social justice warrior who is “looking out for the little guy”. He looks like a she sometimes. Sometimes pretty, sometimes dowdy, sometimes angry, sometimes old, sometimes young and attractive.

So, how do we not become paranoid and suspect everyone of being secretly evil?

The answer is: look at the results, the effects, the true value of what they do or stand for. Look at whether their “plan” worked for you. If they are all words and criticism and judgment, then give them a wide berth. Just don’t let the lure of nice intentions tempt you into the dark cave of dependency and ruin.

Putting North Carolina Public Education Back on Track  

With Michelle Morrow’s leadership, North Carolina public schools can be better equipped to educate and inspire today’s students.

It’s no secret to conservatives that the nation’s children, every single one of them, are at risk. In the main, not for reasons malnutrition, growing up in a tough neighborhood, or having toxic parents. The risk that all kids face today is the potential to be indoctrinated in public schools by their own teachers, teacher’s aides, and administrators.

America’s Children Are under Siege

Some school districts in America, are populated by boards of education, principals, and school administrators who think it is their sacred duty to indoctrinate children, exposing them to all manner of adult and sex-related topics long before any child should be. As such, they usurp the rights of parents and guardians.

Nowhere is this more evident than in North Carolina where 23% of all kindergarten through 12th-grade students are enrolled in either a charter school or private school, or study at home, and the percentage increase in these three options is 84% over the last 11 years. Why? Parents want to determine the best educational options for their own children and they don’t believe that North Carolina public schools are doing an adequate job.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Fortunately, one candidate running for NC superintendent of public instruction means to the state’s education programs back on track. Her name is Michelle Morrow, and she is a personal dynamo whose grasp on the issues is outstanding.

First and foremost, Morrow advocates having safe schools with a culture of academic achievement and civility. If it takes having a security guard in every single school throughout the state to ensure the safety of children attending class as well as teachers and school staff, Morrow is all for it.

She believes that schools should be the safest buildings in the state. Alas, they are not. In North Carolina, school crime and violence increased a whopping 84% in just the past five years. The top three crimes being reported include drug use, weapons possession, and assault – even assault of teachers.

An Advocate for What Counts

As the NC superintendent of public instruction, Morrow will support fair and effective policies that both deter crime and promote classroom civility. She’ll be a strong advocate for teachers’ rights to employ fair and reasonable measures to manage their classrooms as they see fit.

Morrow will insist on parent-friendly schools, recognizing that a child’s academic performance often hinges on the vital partnership between teachers and parents. In too many schools throughout the state, parents are kept completely in the dark about medical treatments and, surprisingly, even academic performance.

Some children are forced to take surveys requiring them to reveal details of their sexual habits and mental state, and schools employ such data to monitor, diagnose, and treat psychological issues. Parents alone, however, have the right to make medical decisions in relation to their children’s health and well-being. Government sponsored data collection needs to end. Morrow will enforce a Parents’ Bill of Rights to ensure that families are protected and that parents have dominion over their own children.

Back to the Basics

Academic achievement has suffered for years on end in North Carolina’s kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms. A staggering one-quarter of eighth graders cannot meet national math, science, or reading standards. Test scores throughout North Carolina reveal that more than 800 schools are under-performing.

As superintendent, Morrow will be focused on ensuring that all the money earmarked for education actually makes its way to the classroom. She will ensure that schools focus on teaching science, math, reading, and real history. She will advocate for small group tutoring when needed by students who are not performing well, and touting for those who are doing exceedingly well and can do even better.

Morrow recognizes that the government in Washington, D.C., has no business in the education of North Carolina students. Parents are not co-parenting with the federal government. The programs and policies that politicians and special interest groups attempt to impose on North Carolina schools must come to an end, and any interference in teaching core academics must cease immediately.

As such, Morrow will sever the ties with public interest groups while helping to strengthen local school districts’ ability to employ proven teaching methods, with the goal of enhancing core academic achievement.

The Big Picture

Morrow will seek to enhance national unity and patriotism. Too many students throughout North Carolina are subjected to one-sided history lessons that portray America as an oppressive, racist, unredeemable nation. Some schools go so far as to stereotype their students and inform them that, as a result of their ethnicity, sexuality, or religion, they are oppressors.

This one-sided, warped view of humanity and method of education must end. Instead of dividing students, Morrow will seek to foster unity and understanding. America is an exceptional country. While every country faces challenges, ours in particular has been fair, compassionate, and forward thinking in recent years.

With Morrow’s leadership, North Carolina schools can be better equipped to educate and inspire the next generation who will become the leaders of our great nation.

Leftists Know Little of History, Naturally

What starts as supposedly benign socialist movements prove to be anything but that

We pause on this long weekend to honor the memory of U.S. military personnel, regardless of their political leanings, who died in service to our nation. Concurrently, it is increasing evident that ignorance is a key factor in being a Leftist.

You have to know little about history and be sufficiently gullible to believe that your own mainstream media is presenting fair and accurate information to you. You have to think that the politicians for whom you’ve voted have your best interests at heart and have the best interests of the nation at heart, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Those on the Left have perpetrated some of the great crimes that humankind has yet witnessed. A brief walk through recent world history reveals that what started out as supposedly benign socialist movements proved to be anything but that.

Hopeless and Headless

The French Revolution in 1789 was a revolt by the bourgeoisie joined by commoners against the aristocracy. Their battle cry was liberty, equality, and egalitarianism. Yet, the regime that followed the French heuristic aristocracy proved to be barbaric.

The slightest transgression or suspicion that you were somehow against “the people” meant that it was off with your head. It is estimated that tens of thousands of people faced the guillotine in France between the years 1792 and 1977 (astonishingly the last year of beheadings in France).

In Denmark in 1803, then Great Britain in 1807, and America in 1808, the slave shipping industry came to an end. While slavery lingered on in Great Britain until 1837 and in America until 1863, there were no further slaves shipped across the Atlantic. Leftists would prefer that you didn’t know this. They want you to believe that America was not among the leaders in ending the Atlantic slave trade.

Always: Socialism Fails Everywhere

In 1917, as Vladimir Lenin returned from exile in Switzerland to Russia, and the Bolsheviks took power, their claims of egalitarianism also proved to be hollow. These socialists displayed that some comrades were “more equal” than others.

To be in the Russian government was to be in the ruling class; all others were deemed to be subservient. Lenin himself coined the term “useful idiots” regarding people who went along with the regime, not questioning the lies, subterfuge, bribes, cronyism, and outright theft of property, always for “the state” and never to be yours, no matter how hard you worked for it.

In 1933, headed by Adolf Hitler, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party came to power. It was a socialist movement, not a conservative movement as many would have you believe today. They had no intention of conserving numerous aspects of German government and German society. These Socialists were hell bent on overturning what came before them, similar to contemporary American Leftists. One of their chief objectives was to eradicate the nation of Jews, gypsies, intellectuals, and other undesirables.

Then, from September 1, 1939, when Hitler invaded Poland under false pretenses, until the time that the Allies were able to storm the beaches in Normandy and make headway through continental Europe, he held Europe and much of the rest the world at bay. All this was under the banner of socialism.

In all, Hitler reigned supreme for 12 years. Finally, he was defeated in the Spring of 1945 and allegedly committed suicide.

Bernie’s Democratic Socialism

Today in America, voices proclaim that socialism or, as Bernie Sanders calls it, Democratic socialism, is the only appropriate, moral, and effective way for our nation to proceed.

These Socialist advocates don’t want you to know what the net result has been around the world, over the ages, of those governments and peoples who have installed socialism. Socialism by its nature dampens the human spirit, rewards a handful of elites, and otherwise cripples entire economies.

Many believe that Scandinavian countries to this day, such as Sweden, are socialists. Actually, they did try socialism for a while and found it to be such a disaster that they abandoned the pretense.

Leftist Fairy Tales

Are the historical events and occurrences discussed above presented in high school history classes, or covered in college history classes? In college depending on what course you take it’s possible. In high school, I have never encountered anyone who has covered this ground.

High school history books and history teachers will talk about the Bolsheviks and the Nazis but don’t mention that they were socialist-based movements. As such, students remain ignorant of this historical reality.

And, the less you know, the more likely you can become a Leftist.
