The Propaganda Is A Many Decades Long Campaign.

The natural human eversion to sodomy, the clear cut visceral reaction to buggery had to be overcome to usher in the New World Order complete with buggery claiming the status of sacrament i.e. "marriage."  When I saw the establishment push this song in 1974, I knew where we were headed.  So here is the humor - but first it was a shock.  Today's young people (2012) brainwashed and conditioned by Public School sexual indoctrination cannot grasp the sinful shame that is "Gay Marriage."   I doubt that people under 40 will truly grasp the shocking humor this hit songs was.

Neo-Conservatives' Inability To See The Forest For the Trees.

Simply stated, the trees are Obama Care. The Forest is the most dictatorial supreme court PRECEDENT possible, which effectively destroyed the last restraints on Federal Power. 

I really don't think that all the so-called Conservative voices spinning Justice Roberts as a genius and touting the end of Obama Care as the ultimate result of his actions are actually as ignorant as they appear. What they are saying is contextually true vis a vis the trees. But the Neo-Cons are as dangerous as the Left, and they know the power that has just been handed to the Federal Government and they are SILENT about it. 

Even if this move by the Supreme Court blows up the entire Affordable Health Care Law, it STILL created a PRECEDENT handing to the Federal Government the power to TAX for doing NOTHING, to tax as a coercion to make you act in some way they deem good for the General Welfare.

People don't grasp the monumental significance of a Supreme Court PRECEDENT. There was such a Supreme Court Precedent in 1997 - Kansas v Hendricks - the Supreme Court ruled that the state of Kansas had the right to incarcerate a sex offender, AFTER he had completed his sentence, because he was deemed SANE but yet, a danger to society. Everybody cheered and I screamed wait! - that's a hellish PRECEDENT. I explained, "They just named a category of persons who may be incarcerated NOT for their actions, but for their POTENTIAL to commit a crime - now it is just a matter of adding categories until they will have the right to lock me up because they don't like what I say. They can deem me a danger to society because I hold beliefs contrary to their goals." 

People laughed at me. 

But for the record it is upon that supreme court PRECEDENT that all the so-called prophylactic laws (preventative laws) of the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization act were held to be 'constitutional.' If they could deem a sex offender "a danger to society" and lock him up without charges, indefinitely, without right of habeaus corpus, then they could do the same with an Alqiada terrorist - who had committed no crime. It was just a matter of adding a "category."

Then in 2009 Homeland security named me and probably you as a person who was a potential terrorist - I have the text from Homeleand security if you would like to see it. 

Now, these jokers (The NEO Conservatives - Roberts being one - and the LEFT joined forces on the court and used Obamacare to destroy the very last limit on Federal Power - that is the PRECEDENT - and people will cheer when Obamacare is blown apart because the bill was passed improperly - and they will forget the PRECEDENT until the next coercive bill is passed PROPERLY and is held to be constitutional UPON this hellish PRECEDENT. Now they literally have the power to deem, for instance, Sharia Sensitivity training as good for the General Welfare - a means to promote domestic tranquility and coerce you to participate in the brainwashing or pay a tax.  Wake UP!

Although the Neo-Con spew Christianize and Conservative rhetoric they are neither conservative nor Christian. They merely have a different version of the Scientistic Dictatorship - a New World Order for which they have eviscerated the Constitution, the Bill of Right and the founding truth upon which this Nation was formed. They ARE social Darwinists, JUST LIKE THE LEFT, they only have a slightly different version of it. But for BOTH the Neo-cons and the left, The Constitution WAS a hindrance to their Utopian Goals; it WAS a hindrance until last Thursday, June the 28th 2012, a day that will live in INFAMY!

Obama's Eugenics Death List

Make no mistake - Let us not even pretend to pretend what we are dealing with here. We are dealing with nothing short of the Doctor Josef Mengele-Joseph Goebbels-like planners and practitioners of mass death. Where the NAZIS managed a few million, Planned Parenthood, the IMF, the World Bank, the U.S. Government and other national governments cooperating with the U.N. have managed what has to be by this year 2012, ONE AND A HALF BILLION abortions since 1982!" 

The HARD and accepted number from 1982 to 2002 was 800 million to one Billion abortions - and of course the "defective" are the first to go. 

Does a physical defect destroy the Human soul? 

This is a foolish question for the post-humans who have accepted "The Mark of the Beast" - that is they have bought evolution mythology and agreed to be marked as "beast only" just a biological form.  And of course all defective biological forms are a threat to the species, as are old people and sick people. 

Do you really think that my buddy Michel Petrucciani would have survive under the Luciferian Obama-Care with is Eugenic "Whole Life System" philosophy? 

Come on it isn't even a close call.  Michel would have been ABORTED and his young mother would have been congratulated for her "wisdom." 

We are about to NEUTER the human race and we are too stupid to get it. 

Let me ask you a question.  I don't want to be heartless. Abortion may have its place. If you had your first child who lived only six days, the second sickly, who had to be taken in by relatives. Then hope, two boys that lived, though one was blind. Then a girl who died at day four, and a boy who died at just two days and you are pregnant again. Do you abort? 


GODLESSNESS! = Death and void - silence . . . the only sound is Lucifer smiling - which is a sickening screeching sound. 

GODLINESS = Life and Creativity, Hope, Music, Beautiful Sounds, Opportunity, Praise, Love, Sadness, Happiness, Frustration, Accomplishment, Beauty!

"I was born a weak defenseless child, but thine angel spread his wings over my cradle to defend me."

Today I Am Post-Human: Or So They Say

Well on the morning of June 29th 2012 I awaken to discover that my Government recognizes me as a post-human beast only, whose body and physical health is at the mercy of the State, the keepers of all human "livestock" Obama's Medical Czars. I'm post human because these people do not recognize my humanity, cannot recognize any higher aspect of me than the fact - according to their religion of Scientism - that I am one of the higher primates, a member of the Great Ape family of the "species" called homo-sapien:

the species of bipedal primates to which modernhumans belong, characterized by a brain capacity averaging1400 cc (85 cubic in.) and by dependence upon language and the creation and utilization of complex tools.

Isn't the family cute!

I'm post-American, as Obama has repeatedly stated, and since Justice Roberts fell in lock step, defecated on the Constitution, and destroyed any meaning that piece of parchment ever had; this following 50 years of assaults upon the same by the utopian planners who have to destroy it to succeed with their Luciferian goals. There goal is to mark humanity with "The Mark of The Beast" and control humanity like livestock in a pen. Anyone who buys into the "biology only" paradigm of Extreme Materialism of the Evolutionists has accepted "The Mark of the Beast" and you will be approved of the establishment. You know the scientistic truths, for instance that a homosexual is born predisposed to his proclivity, and there is nothing to be done, since as a beast he is material only and a slave to his genes.   

But I have news for them. I will never accept The Mark of the Beast.  Just as no one could destroy my Christianity by destroying every Bible on the planet and every Christian word ever written by any Christian writer, and just as no breaking of commandments and mocking of things sacred by pagans, muslims and atheists can destroy my Christianity, so the destruction of the Constitution and the mocking of its principles cannot destroy my LIBERTY.

My Christianity doesn't come from books, it comes to me "fleshly heart to fleshly heart" from the witness of precious Christians I have known all my life who have lovingly shared the stories of their journeys and their experience of Almighty God, where a spark of that Divinity that rested in their hearts, like a contagion took abode in my heart and burned me, and challenged the stone that was my heart and turned it day by day from stone to flesh, flowing with the blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Only then was I capable of finding the True Light in the Sacred Writings, till then the words were dust and death. It was that spark of uncreated energy Christ shared with me that progressively illumined everything. Where lie became as apparent as a dark shadow in the room and the demonic world was pushed back, where in time Truth was grasped and spoken. 

One such heart of flesh, so sweetly filled with both frightening strength and gentle humility was Corrie Ten Boom whose stories told to me when I was a boy, almost in a whisper sometimes with eyes welled with tears as she observed my bitter heart. She would say in her deep Dutch accent, "The shell is hard and brittle, but you are not fooling me. That shell hides a heart wounded and in need of healing. But don't worry one day that shell will turn as soft and strong as subtle leather, and your heart will constantly bleed." She was right. Faith comes by hearing - sharing - experience, and I too became a witness, speaking most effectively in almost a whisper, sharing the spark in my heart that had turned to fire. This is the Liberty that is Inalienable - no book or parchment can create it or contain it.

Just as my Christianity does not come from a document, neither does my Liberty come from a government; it is NOT the result of ink on parchment.  My Christianity exists in my being, and so does my liberty, and no assault can change that. My Christianity is a blessed and undeserved gift of a benevolent God, who in the Person of Jesus Christ suffered and conquered death by death so that I might share in his glorified nature and have LIFE, and that same God has endowed me with inalienable rights, the rights proper to the dignity of the human and these rights include the right to say - Nice try, utopian seeking, pagan New World Order Post-Humans - but no Cigar, I'm the same person I was yesterday, before you conquered the Constitution, just a little wiser, and tomorrow I'll be the same person by God's mercy and grace just a little wiser still, and I am your worst nightmare, a HUMAN alive, angry, joyful and un-hypnotized. 

Chances are, if you are reading this, you probably are not hypnotized either, or you would not give my thoughts the time of day. They would be just foolishness to you, some ignorant throwback to the pre-scientistic era.  OR you may be partly hypnotized, but awakening. Saints of God we have to awaken. We cannot live in the spiritual darkness of this culture and create anything but suffering, death and hell for our children and grand children. If we do not awaken, we cannot awaken them and tens of millions of them are hypnotized and victims of the deadly conditioning of the culture. 

They are not bad people, but they are neo-pagans and don't even realize it, having accept the odd combination of "spirituality" that is the new paganism - the material-gnosticism that is the religion of the Beast. If you know theology and evolution you have to know what an unlikely combination those two words are, "material-gnosticism" but that is the truth of it. The spirituality is physical, and comprised of mythology that is material-rationalism and emotionalism. What is positive and good, has no moral context. It simply means what feels good and seems on the surface ego satisfying. These poor young people have become such "sheep" of the Luciferian fold that Lucifer is using them as living Ikons of the gnostic theology he is teaching them. They turn themselves over to be canvases of Satan's theology, and the further into darkness they sink, the uglier the symbols become. 

Many find themselves "shell shocked" where this evil day has taken them like a thief - and they are unprepared. You have to be the sons and daughters of the Light, the sons and daughters of the Day. If you are here reading this you can't remain sons and daughters of the darkness. "For those who sleep, sleep in the darkness and those who get drunk are drunk at night."  For the healing of ourselves, our families and communities, we have to awaken and sober-up. We have to take to our hearts the vitality, the LIFE, the protection of Faith and LOVE - the God who IS LOVE, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we have to "in hope" begin the process of healing our minds, ridding ourselves of every lying illusion and delusion of this pagan culture of death. We have to TURN THE T.V. off, and stop allowing the corporate manipulators and controllers to hypnotize us as we stare blankly at the screen - allowing our emotions to dance and be conditions by lies and death.  

A precious friend who was a wonderful Christian Science "practitioner" (yes I know Christian Science is gnosticism - but that doesn't mean that everything said by a Christian Scientist is a lie)  - that precious lady said to me, "There is nothing more evil than calling what is evil, good. Discovering what is evil and death engendering and what is good and life engendering is the highest wisdom." And she is absolutely right. We cannot be set free by illusion and uplifting sounding words, and "inspiration" that reaches merely to our emotional response and not to the bottom of our heart with the power to CHANGE us. Such uplifting speech merely adds layer upon layer of delusion upon our hearts and minds. Nothing but Truth may set us free and start the process of our healing; healing where our mind becomes continually conscious of God, and our hearts turn from stone to flesh. This is the hope - - the ἐλπίς
elpis = el-pece' = From ἔλπω elpō which is a primary word "to anticipate, usually with pleasure; to hold expectation, abstract or concrete and confidence" - -  this is the hope of salvation, which Saint Paul called, a helmet of protection. 

We have witnessed in this last political year thousands of people whose core psyche is anger, disappointment, frustration and some expressing defeat and hopelessness. Their infant ego is insulted because things haven't automatically gone like they thought it should. They have been tricked and they are pissed.

IF we are to be LIGHT, to share the FIRE that should inhabit our heart, that FIRE of LOVE, LIGHT, HOPE, TRUTH, we cannot fall victim to "anger only."  We are not called to anger. Certainly there are times when if we are not angry we are not right. Anger is not a sin. But when anger hangs on and torments us, well that is a sinful nature expressing itself. We are not purposely sinning, we rather have become the victim of sin. Saint Paul said it rather graphically, "God did not appoint us to wrath, but to the obtaining of healing through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us."  Did not appoint us to wrath - - we think that means simply anger, when we read it in English. But the word in the original Greek is Orgay - you don't have to be very creative to imagine the etymology of the word, "orgy" do you, and that is exactly the meaning of this word, "violent passions." We are not appointed to "violent passions." One of the Holy Father/Saints - I can't recall which and it doesn't matter, said, "The proof of an insane man is one who is still failing his fists in the air, boxing at shadows long after the conflict is over." By the way this is where the term "shadow boxing" comes from. Anyway, he is depicting a man full of wrath - full of orgay - full of violent passions. Violent passions cannot change a single mind, in fact, cannot do anything but spread the disease.

I'm the least religion person you will ever meet. I HATE the persona and pretension of "holiness" and "piety" and "humility."  Wait now, I didn't say that I hate holiness, or piety, or humility, I said I hate the persona and pretension of the same. When it is real it is buried in the perfectly appropriate and full range of human emotions, ever ready for expression "INSTANT in season and out of season" as Saint Paul taught. From the conflict to being finished with the conflict is one tenth second in length. The anger of the conflict cannot hang on as a violent passion, and have sway with our day like an orgay.  Appropriate Anger and Violent Passions expressed in the political arena are not synonymous. Appropriate Anger is expressed against the lie and the Father of Lies, and any means to expose him is appropriate, and healing. It lances the wound in the victim who holds the lie festering like an infection, and MAY provide a healing therapy. That is what the holy scriptures mean when it says that "the word of God is living and effectual, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of the heart." When you speak truth it punctures the festering passions of those caught in lies and you have to be careful because, if they are not ready for it, they will simply hate you. But properly used only Truth may lance the festering passions and start the healing process.  This holds nothing in common with the battle of "ego vs ego" "pride vs pride" "orgay vs orgay." NOTHING good can be gained of such exercise.  Now at times it may appear "passionate" when two people are speaking "contaminated" or Truth that is not "sharp." Then that communication is in love and it is iron sharpening iron. 

Do you think Jesus came to make the pagan cultures peaceful - to create a utopia upon the earth by masking over the horrors of human neglect and abuse? No he said, "Do not suppose that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." He wasn't speaking of a weapon of iron or steel. He was speaking of the "sword of the spirit of truth" that has to be used judiciously, that is capable of creating "wounds that are healing." 

In this mix of all the "battling" for what is true and right, there is food and drink for the sacred warriors. It is a food and drink that is inexhaustible, capable of sustaining an army of the righteous for decades and centuries if need be. That food is HIS real presence - and if you know about it already you understand what I'm saying is true - and if you don't believe in HIS real presence, there is nothing I can do to change your mind except to invite you and say, "Come, Taste and See how sweet is the real presence of the Lord." And accompany that presence is prayer, not often, but constant, where every motion is taken as unto the Lord. So that even a sinner like me may say, "Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, Have Mercy on me, a sinner." My friend Fr Paul always reminds me, "With St Paul's challenge to pray unceasingly, the Orthodox tradition offers the Jesus Prayer, which is sometimes called the prayer of the heart. It is first and foremost a prayer of the Spirit, because the prayer addresses Jesus as Lord, Christ and Son of God; and St. Paul tells us, 'no one can say Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit."  Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on us. Lord Jesus Christ Son of God have mercy on me.

Sacred spaces are very, very important. Your prayer corner ought to be at least a big as your bar. <smile>

The Fall of the Republic of the United States of America

This video is two and a half hours of truth that will make you weep, IF you have a clue about the constitution and what the United States of America is supposed to be. The game is over. Our politics is a sham. All that is left is resistance by whatever means necessary.

Ian Taylor wrote in 1999 in his book, In the Minds of Men: Darwin and the New World Order,  "However, Fascism or Marxism, right wing or left - - all these are only ideological roads that lead to Aldous Huxley's brave new world [i.e. scientific dictatorship], while the foundation for each of these roads is Darwin's theory of evolution. Fascism is aligned with biological determinism and tends to emphasize the unequal struggle by which those inherently fittest shall rule. Marxism stresses social progress by stages of revolution, while at the same time it paradoxically emphasized peace and equality.  There should be no illusions; Hitler borrowed from Marx. The result is that both Fascism and Marxism finish at the same destiny - - totalitarian rule by the elite." (pg 411)   

I remember reading this in 1999 and thinking how Reaganism had proved to be a two edged sword, that while it brought down communism it had ushered in something far more sinister, which was touted in that sings-song triumphal voice about the New World Order. I reference George Herbert Walker Bush.  Notice the date of that speech was, 9/11 - 1990. I remembered in 1989 watching the Berlin Wall being dismantled and people celebrating and I was filled with grief. My wife was puzzled by my reaction. I told her, "That huge subversive apparatus, filled with killers, liars and bureaucrats and massive technological capability is suddenly now going to be free, with nothing to do. Bureaucrats know how to justify their jobs. They will turn that apparatus on us now. May God Have Mercy." She said, "Do you think the KGB is that powerful?" I said, "No hun, I'm talking about the C.I.A., F.B.I., N.S.A. and every other spook outfit, now looking for a mission."

Then Bill Clinton's reign, the purposeful provocation against Christians that was the fiasco at Ruby Ridge and Waco, then the reprisal they were hoping for a year later in Oklahoma City. I watched them experimenting with they brainwashing techniques they used to create the Rodney King riots, and drum up support for Kosovo. Now they had all the reason they needed to match the actions they were already taking with the home grown subversives, they created. 1996 and the Olympic Park bombing, surrounded in time by the bombing of abortion clinics. 

I wrote volumes about the government's roll in creating these things and was rewarded with having an FBI undercover officer assigned to me from 1996 to 2003. All the time by the Holy Spirit I knew who and what he was while he did everything in his power to become my best friend. I gained huge respect for him. I believe him to be a genuinely good man, misguided and blind to the reality of the times, but still a good and decent man. As as prison chaplain, I saw him do genuinely merciful work with inmates in our care and I truly appreciated the government paying him to help me. I never saw a moment's anger out of him until mercifully I released him from his assignment one day saying, "Roger, I'm going to do you a favor. I've known that you were law enforcement from the first day we met."  I could see he was dumb-founded. I described the day, the event and even what he was wearing. I said, "Did you really think that I was unaware of you following the playbook, even dressing like I dress, learning to speak like I speak?" He turned red in the face. Now, understand we were apparent close friends for those years. He did not curse, but where before he always addressed me so over-respectfully as Father Rob, suddenly it was Butch and the words were laced with venom. He said, "Butch, you are nothing but a huckster." I know it had to sting, because he had wasted six and a half years. He got on his Harley and road away and I've never laid eyes on him since. This government is serious and in your face, watching everything, reading everything, don't think it is passive at all. Every ounce of energy it possesses it is pushing toward that New World Order and any who stand in its way are "the enemy."  Yes, I AM the enemy of the Scientistic Dictatorship commonly called the New World Order. It is Satanic at its core, merely the latest pagan Tower of Babel and will come to the same end, but not before it chews up million, maybe billions more. (After all it has financed and arranged 1.6 billion abortions in the last thirty years - This statistic from Dr Wyman Yale University - the "establishment's" most respected evolutionary demographer and population expert.)  

Meantime came Clinton's purposeful ignoring of Muslim radicalism, the purposeful slaughter of Christians in Kosovo, the U.S. and Alqiada terrorists fighting side by side to give Kosovo to the Muslims and the very valuable mines holding in Kosovo to George Soros.  I knew 9/11/ was coming and the whole world seemed a strange place. Then came that Kansas case June 1997, Kansas v. Hendricks, where the ACLU got it right in their brief saying: 

WAIT: Before you read the statement - did you notice your visceral reaction to the mention of the ACLU? Didn't you just say to yourself, "If it came from the ACLU it can't be true?" Did you think this? This is how you are conditioned and don't even realize it.  I remember Jay Sekulow, ACLJ's Chief Counsel, (the American Center for Law and Justice) soft soaping this case and failing to sound the alarm. Do you think he would have survived YOUR prejudice if he had argued on the side of the ACLU, when they were in the right? Recently he has argued on the same side as the ACLU, but then it would have been a career killer, coming to the defense of a child molester. 

"This case is not about whether our children should be protected from sexual offenders, but how to accomplish that goal without trampling on basic civil liberties of every citizen," said Steven R. Shapiro, the ACLU's national legal director. "The states can and should enforce long prison terms for repeat sexual offenders," Shapiro added. "But we should not allow politicians to use mental hospitals as a place to lock up individuals who are regarded as dangerous. The result today distorts both psychiatry and laws." 

I wrote about the case saying, '"First they came for the homosexuals' . .  but wait . . . that was Germany. In America they made cult heroes of the homosexuals so we would not notice when they came for the child molesters. We all said, 'We have nothing to worry about because we are not child molesters.'"  

They did trample the basic civil liberties of every citizen and now fifteen years later they can come for ANYONE, arrest ANYONE without charges and incarcerate without trial. All of those prophylactic laws, in place by the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act, which is, being able to arrest you for your 'potential' not for your actions are stacked on the legal precedent of that Kansas v Hindricks case.  But people were sleeping, including the watch dogs like Sekulow, or as Father Thomas Hopko has said, "People were consuming, computing, calculating and copulating" and too busy to notice the day they lost their civil liberties, that was June 23rd 1997 - I've never forgotten the day. 

Reading Taylor's words it clicked into my mind how from Nixon, to Ford, to Carter, to Reagan, to G.H.W. Bush, to Clinton, the New World Order flowed in an uninterrupted fashion, how even the "Republican Revolution" of Newt Gingrich had been sucked into it, how men were corrupted and marginalized or killed - (my friend Congressman Larry McDonald being one who was killed - it was his insights that shook me from my previous naivete) players came and went but the inexorable march to the Scientific Dictatorship was the only constant and there was that other Bush face in 1999 (Dubah) . . . talking all the right stuff, babbling empty conservative rhetoric laced in the language of the Christian Religion but devoid of Christianity's teaching. It was neither conservative nor Christian, but the cover image for the next set of Neo-Cons still marching to Zion, literally, as in The Protocols of the Wise Men of Sion. These were not Jewish elders, these are the fanatics of the New World Order who see themselves as the New Israelites. I knew that we would reach THIS day June 28th 2012 when our republic would fall. I hoped I would not live to see it; I hoped it would happen far into the future, but like a house of cards, boom, the Twin Towers, boom, the Pentagon, boom, Shanksville, boom the Jihadist sniper-killers who terrorized D.C. and Northern Virginia, boom, the Anthrax attacks, boom, the massive wild fires in suburban areas, boom, the increase in tanker truck explosions, boom, the increase in train derailments, boom the massive chemical spills, boom, billion of barrels of abiotic oil now sits on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, none of this was accident or natural causes . . .  and the destruction of the republic is soon complete. And oddly, very, very oddly just as Osama bin Laden stated it would happen. Now we are merely people, land and property spread across what once was a great and Free country, with a short but amazing history unmatched by any previous civilization or nation, but now buried in the bondage of debt, leaders who have hobbled us, armed forces that are confused, and now the new (Brown Shirt) domestic civilian army of Obama's creation. These are our stable keepers. We have purposely cultivated the homegrown Jihadist movement by evil immigration policies, and now Obama has erased the "reality" of our borders. How can one not grieve? But there is no time for it. The work of freeing our grand children from the slavery of tyranny has to being NOW. 

The first work is we have to TEACH them their true history, because just a Michelle Obama stated clearly, they have changed our culture, changed our history, so that the young have NO chance of learning what is true, unless WE teach them. And in the process we ourselves have to learn True and Foundational Christianity and free ourselves from the gnostic/pagan imitations of Christian that flood many of the Mega Churches, the christian book market and cable t.v.  Christianity is not about "feel-good-ism" it is about Truth and Truth in ALL Things. It is about Truth even when Truth is painful and ugly.  

Do not surrender! Do not give up. Prepare to sacrifice whatever is needed for our God Given Liberty. 

George H.W. Bush's New World Order Speech - hindsight is 20x20 - this man is just one more in a long line of traitor.

Archpriest Symeon Elias - Here I STAND.

Does Truth Matter? - Could Judge Roberts Actually Be A Constitutional Conservative?

Every day almost, some Republican and/or conservative independent friend will tell me that I MUST support Mitt Romney, that they really did not want him as the candidate, but that since his machine destroyed all the other candidates that the handwriting is on the wall, and we all have to get in line and accept the lesser of two evils. 

Dr. Alan Keyes said in a speech in Missouri a month ago, that we have arrived where we are, having already lost our real liberties because we were convinced time and time again to accept the lesser of two evils. He said, "It is simply a point in fact, that when you keep choosing the lesser of two evils you are still accenting to evil, and the evil becomes progressively more evil, until there is nothing but lies, deceit, corruption, illusion and delusion. That's where we are." 

A friend of a friend just related the story of going to a meeting at the Heritage Foundation shortly after Judge Roberts was affirmed as Chief Justice. He said, "I asked some of the people I knew, who I thought were in the know if we constitutional conservatives could really trust Roberts. Of course, they assured me, they did, and I could."  On this day, June 28th 2012 a day that will live in infamy - how did that turn out for us? 

Do you want to know why a supposed constitutional conservative like Roberts could skew the law, side with people who HATE the constitution and impose TAX policy contrary to the Constitution, that had not been imposed by Congress? Let us not kid ourselves, this was an act of treason, not an act of supporting and defending the Constitution by correct "interpretation." I was a precedent setting usurpation of power, subsuming to the Supreme Court the RIGHT to set tax policy. No other thing fits the facts, since the constitution clearly states that all Tax policy to be initiated by the congress.  Congress said IN THE Affordable Health Care Act ITSELF that the Mandate was not a tax.  That's the truth but truth does not matter, when you have a greater agenda. Truth can never get in the way of the greater agenda. 

Can you reason through why Judge Roberts would need to hang onto the power created in the so-called "Affordable Health Care Act"? Because the Neo-Cons are about POWER and not about fidelity to the Constitution. Surely today of all days ought to teach us that.

Do you want to know why you can't tell the difference between Obama Care and Romney Care, why George Soros says either candidate will be just fine?  Because the labels Right and Left, Conservative and Liberal, Socialist and Neo-Con have become meaningless. Why? Because they have become alike, using the same corrupt means and methods. Because in their scramble for a New World Order, pushing "internationalism" and/or "multi-nationalism" whichever at a whim, they are willing to tell any lie. They have sunk to deeper and deeper levels of corruption, holding no sacred honor, willing to commit any evil for the fulfillment of their true goal, a goal which they will kill to cover up. And now qualitatively there is no difference between the two, the internationalism proposed by the Marxists and the internationalism proposed by the Neo Cons, is both Constitution destroying, Sovereignty destroying and detrimental to the citizen they are sworn to protect. 

Neither - as today's ruling proves can be bothered with the rule of law, certainly not hampered by the restrictions of the constitution. Both philosophies have spouted the goal of "democracy" and have used the fomenting of "democratic revolution" to cover their power grabs, taking down entire nations for their cronies, placing them in the hands of those favored people, with NO regard for the cost in American lives, American fortune and less regard for the lives of the innocents who are killed and maimed in the process and the dupes they use to foment the revolutions. Both have become slaves to the New World Order and the difference in their vision of what that order is and should be is now qualitatively the same. 

Until true conservatives and even patriotic liberals, like John Kennedy was,  become dedicated to the Truth, and value truth above all else, there can be no distinction between the liars on the right and the liars on the left, because right and left is just a suit they wear for the benefit of the useful idiots who vote for them. 

TRUTH MATTERS: If we wrote fiction we could not write the scenario where the program for universal healthcare, complete with mandate was planned by the Heritage Foundation and other supposed "conservative" think tanks almost twenty years ago, and passed into law by one of the most slippery politicians of our era. That man, the political chameleon and contortionist, Mitt Romney  while claiming to be a conservative in Ted Kennedy's home state, and claiming to be an opponent of Ted Kennedy, passed into law Ted Kennedy's dream law, universal healthcare, with a mandate - something Kennedy had been seeking and working for, for 30 years. Then the next President took that model and passed it on a national level as Romney has repeatedly suggested it should be. Now, contort, change colors and Romney is supposed to be our stalwart, our only hope for repealing this monstrosity? And we BELIEVE it? Do you really believe it?

TRUTH MATTERS: Mitt Romney, who claims all sorts of "clarity of thought" like over Gay Marriage, which he instituted in Massachusetts by fiat, now he is for the Defense of Marriage Act (which itself is a con game). . . then there is that Romney Care, now he is still for it for "his state" but definitely NOT for it for the Nation, and he claims that he will immediately "repeal" it, because it is "unconstitutional."  Then he sputters and says, "Well, repeal and replace," though he has never given a hint of what the replacement would look like. 

TRUTH MATTERS: When Romney ran his campaign using Saul Alinsky BIG LIE tactics against every opponent who past him in the polls, and managed to buy the primaries via greasing the hands of almost all of his endorsers and spending many tens of millions in negative and lying T.V. spots, which managed to massively suppress the vote and rob the party faithful of ANY enthusiasm for the campaign, he PROVED that he is no more connected to the truth in June of 2012 than any other month in his life - TRUTH MATTERS. The ability to tell the truth MATTERS. To tell the truth, even if it costs you your career ambition is a matter of HONOR, something that none of the modern politicians seem to grasp. 

TRUTH MATTERS: The "Affordable Health Care Act" is a massive collection of power in the hands of the Scientistic Elite, controlled by the centralized government.  It is the stuff of NAZI Germany and holds the same philosophical roots. NO politician will be willing give up this power, especially now that it has the support of "The Supremes". 

If no one is willing to stand for TRUTH and willing to FACE the Truth, and accept the PAIN of rejecting the LIE and the LIAR, even if it is your party's candidate speaking, we have lost the ability to communicate "the good." Then ALL is lie, and there can be no difference, no distinction between right and left, conservative and liberal, right and wrong, Marxism and Neo-conservatism because none are actually those things anymore, they are rather all con men, utopia seekers, bowing at the altar of the New World Order, with the ever-ready lie on their lips. 

Last decade we listened to the nails tapping as they were driven into the coffin containing our liberties and the last vestiges of sanity, morality and goodness our system could claim - and yes BUSH did it, standing on the shoulders of his father and Bill Clinton. The last three and a half years we have watch the coffin being drug to the grave, with insult and destruction to our traditions, patriotism, economy, businesses, home values, educational institutions, wealth, savings, and finally the all out assault on The Church and our religion freedom. Today Judge Roberts tossed the coffin in the grave, and it won't take but a few months until the grave is filled and weeds and brambles growing over the grand experiment that WAS the United State of America.  Whether Obama or Romney hold the presidency makes absolutely no difference. This has but one way to go and it will not end peacefully.   

Or maybe it will. Maybe the drugs, the pleasure seeking hedonism, the total self-absorption in entertainment, T.V., games, movies, Iphones etc., etc., has left the masses hypnotized unable to ACT. Maybe we won't see the beauty of Liberty Minded people camping in the bitter winter cold in D.C. like the brave souls did in the Orange Rebellion in Kiev. Maybe it will just all end with a whimper, with a picture of some hippy standing down a line of tanks, an Ikon of hopelessness, then another interesting movie or video game, three more shots of tequila, another snort of coke, some really good weed and fade to black.    

It is all lies, truth doesn't matter, just the spin, the con. "We controlled the press"  - no joke.

Archpriest Symeon Elias - June 28th, 2012.


The supreme court decision to be announced today has a greater historical implication than the presidential election, by one hundred fold. Elections are always promises made and promises broken with few exceptions. But today is one of those bright lines where we will see if there will be any freedom in this new Scientistic Dictatorship. 

People have focused on the "individual mandate" as if it is the only objectionable part of Obama Care. Few have grasped the hellish reality of health decisions being (1) mandated (2) regulated and (3) rationed by a Scientistic Dictatorship, over which we have NO control.    

Watching the anger toward the law, turn to grinding complacency has been hard to watch, and personally disheartening as more and more people have been taken-in by "parts" that is benefits of the bill.  Showing that they would be willing to completely and totally trash their humanity and agree to be "beast only" for some personal benefit. Ultimately that is the implication of this law, since the Scientistic Establishment sees you as "beast only" and holds no recognition of your humanity. It plans for you, like planning for livestock or crops, in the same Scientistic Paradigm, without any recognition of the Human having any higher purpose than the dung beetle. If you doubt this assertion I would challenge you to take Dr Wyman's course at Yale University about the "difficulties" of Human Population.  Linked here.

At this point in time, it is glaringly obvious that increasing numbers of people are willing to trash the bill of rights, the last vestige of the recognition of U.S. Citizens as "Humans" endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, for the feeling of security, convenience or ease that cattle must surely feel inside the protection of the stockyard. That is the carrot the progressives have used to increase their authority administration after administration, Democrat AND Republican. The choice of candidates for this election mark out this TRUTH boldly.  

At present the only semblance of freedom we have left is that we are not forced to pay tax because we breath. That is what the "mandate" should have rightly been called from day one, the Breath Tax.  IF the supreme court affirms "The Breath Tax" then we have not just lost our rights, our genuine enslavement to the Scientistic Dictatorship has begun. What most people don't realize is that it isn't merely the enslavement of "humans" but the denial of the human as human. Since surrender of our very bodies to the Dictatorship of a State Scientistic system, to care for it, to govern every aspect of its "life cycle," is agreeing to be marked as beast only - that is - it is Accepting the Mark of The Beast. Lets you believe this to be an exaggeration look up the "Whole Life Chart System," read about what it means, how the person is arbitrarily "valued" ONLY according to age and relative health of the body; how the vulnerable young and old and the defective are sacrificed, not with the dignity of humans, but with the certainty of culling the herd. I will never accept the Mark of The Beast.

Muslim Brotherhood IN America - Let us stop being naive.

Muslim Brotherhood IN America - well worth the time to understand where we are and ONE of the many problems our society faces. This is a ten hour course by the Center for Security directed by Frank Gaffney. If you want to save our country you have to be informed. The Muslim Brotherhood has not only the Obama Administration in their pocket, they had the Bush Administration and the Clinton Administration before that. Now they have infiltrated such groups as The Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) and Americans For Tax Reform and the Republican Party. YOU need to know this and be wise. Those who dare state the truth of it are attacked and labeled "islamophobic" - Islamophobia - is hate speech used to describe anyone who see and tells the truth about what this course teaches.  

Together with Romney's money The Muslim Brotherhood and their "front groups" "friends" and "agents" controlled the GOP nomination process this cycle, by systematically taking out anyone who dared say anything true about Islam. They crucified the man who told the truth saying, "There is fundamentally no difference between moderate Islam and radical Islam," Gingrich said. "They are both the same. They want exactly the same thing, and want to accomplish the same goals: the destruction of the Democratic way of life, and the imposition of Islam and Sharia Law. They just have two different ways of accomplishing their goal." We are left with the man who repeatedly made the "Sharia compliant" statement, "If you want my views on Islam, it's quite straightforward. Islam is one of the world's great religions and the great majority of people in Islam want peace for themselves and peace with their maker. They want to raise families and have a bright future. There is, however, a movement in the world known as jihadism. They call themselves jihadists and I use the same term. And this jihadist movement is intent on causing the collapse of moderate Muslim states and the assassination of moderate Muslim leaders. It is also intent on causing collapse of other nations in the world. It's by no means a branch of Islam. It is instead an entirely different entity. In no way do I suggest it is a part of Islam." -MITT ROMNEY (2009)

I highly recommend taking the time, if it takes ten days or ten weeks to learn the facts, so that what you say about it is not merely more noise of "opinion" but is knowledge based upon FACT.

This last video paints the picture of just how compromised and politicized the FBI and Department of Homeland Security has become, in the hands of Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood handlers. This honest analysis cost Judge Andrew Napolitano his job on Fox. 

I predicted in 2009 that Obama would find ways to strengthen the Muslim Brotherhood.  It wasn't until 2010 that I realized that he was going to give them entire countries. Eighteen months ago I said Muslim Brotherhood country would extend from Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria and possibly Jordan. People laughed, but I was way more right than I was wrong. Six out of seven isn't a bad average. If you doubt what you have studied above and that the Muslim Brotherhood is in control of the media message and the politicians consider this:

John Kerry says (concerning the elections in Egypt) "Don't prejudge the Muslim Brotherhood"

What Was JFK Talking About?

JFK was killed for this and in particular executive order 11110 

"And, JFK’s "United States notes" backed by silver, which were withdrawn the day he was shot, would have put the Federal Reserve out of business and returned to the Treasury Department the Constitutional power to create and issue a debt-free currency."

Full Speech that got JFK murdered;

President Anderson, members of the faculty, board of trustees, distinguished guests, my old colleague, Senator Bob Byrd, who has earned his degree through many years of attending night law school, while I am earning mine in the next 30 minutes, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen:

It is with great pride that I participate in this ceremony of the American University, sponsored by the Methodist Church, founded by Bishop John Fletcher Hurst, and first opened by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. This is a young and growing university, but it has already fulfilled Bishop Hurst's enlightened hope for the study of history and public affairs in a city devoted to the making of history and to the conduct of the public's business. By sponsoring this institution of higher learning for all who wish to learn, whatever their color or their creed, the Methodists of this area and the Nation deserve the Nation's thanks, and I commend all those who are today graduating.

Professor Woodrow Wilson once said that every man sent out from a university should be a man of his nation as well as a man of his time, and I am confident that the men and women who carry the honor of graduating from this institution will continue to give from their lives, from their talents, a high measure of public service and public support. "There are few earthly things more beautiful than a university," wrote John Masefield in his tribute to English universities – and his words are equally true today. He did not refer to towers or to campuses. He admired the splendid beauty of a university, because it was, he said, "a place where those who hate ignorance may strive to know, where those who perceive truth may strive to make others see."

I have, therefore, chosen this time and place to discuss a topic on which ignorance too often abounds and the truth too rarely perceived. And that is the most important topic on earth: peace. What kind of peace do I mean and what kind of a peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, and the kind that enables men and nations to grow, and to hope, and build a better life for their children – not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women, not merely peace in our time but peace in all time.

I speak of peace because of the new face of war. Total war makes no sense in an age where great powers can maintain large and relatively invulnerable nuclear forces and refuse to surrender without resort to those forces. It makes no sense in an age where a single nuclear weapon contains almost ten times the explosive force delivered by all the allied air forces in the Second World War. It makes no sense in an age when the deadly poisons produced by a nuclear exchange would be carried by wind and water and soil and seed to the far corners of the globe and to generations yet unborn.

Today the expenditure of billions of dollars every year on weapons acquired for the purpose of making sure we never need them is essential to the keeping of peace. But surely the acquisition of such idle stockpiles – which can only destroy and never create – is not the only, much less the most efficient, means of assuring peace. I speak of peace, therefore, as the necessary, rational end of rational men. I realize the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war, and frequently the words of the pursuers fall on deaf ears. But we have no more urgent task.

Some say that it is useless to speak of peace or world law or world disarmament, and that it will be useless until the leaders of the Soviet Union adopt a more enlightened attitude. I hope they do. I believe we can help them do it. But I also believe that we must reexamine our own attitudes, as individuals and as a Nation, for our attitude is as essential as theirs. And every graduate of this school, every thoughtful citizen who despairs of war and wishes to bring peace, should begin by looking inward, by examining his own attitude towards the possibilities of peace, towards the Soviet Union, towards the course of the cold war and towards freedom and peace here at home.

First examine our attitude towards peace itself. Too many of us think it is impossible. Too many think it is unreal. But that is a dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable, that mankind is doomed, that we are gripped by forces we cannot control. We need not accept that view. Our problems are manmade; therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings. Man's reason and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable, and we believe they can do it again. I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concept of universal peace and good will of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. I do not deny the value of hopes and dreams but we merely invite discouragement and incredulity by making that our only and immediate goal.

Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace, based not on a sudden revolution in human nature but on a gradual evolution in human institutions – on a series of concrete actions and effective agreements which are in the interest of all concerned. There is no single, simple key to this peace; no grand or magic formula to be adopted by one or two powers. Genuine peace must be the product of many nations, the sum of many acts. It must be dynamic, not static, changing to meet the challenge of each new generation. For peace is a process – a way of solving problems.

With such a peace, there will still be quarrels and conflicting interests, as there are within families and nations. World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor, it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement. And history teaches us that enmities between nations, as between individuals, do not last forever. However fixed our likes and dislikes may seem, the tide of time and events will often bring surprising changes in the relations between nations and neighbors. So let us persevere. Peace need not be impracticable, and war need not be inevitable. By defining our goal more clearly, by making it seem more manageable and less remote, we can help all people to see it, to draw hope from it, and to move irresistibly towards it.

And second, let us reexamine our attitude towards the Soviet Union. It is discouraging to think that their leaders may actually believe what their propagandists write. It is discouraging to read a recent, authoritative Soviet text on military strategy and find, on page after page, wholly baseless and incredible claims, such as the allegation that American imperialist circles are preparing to unleash different types of war, that there is a very real threat of a preventive war being unleashed by American imperialists against the Soviet Union, and that the political aims – and I quote – "of the American imperialists are to enslave economically and politically the European and other capitalist countries and to achieve world domination by means of aggressive war."

Truly, as it was written long ago: "The wicked flee when no man pursueth."

Yet it is sad to read these Soviet statements, to realize the extent of the gulf between us. But it is also a warning, a warning to the American people not to fall into the same trap as the Soviets, not to see only a distorted and desperate view of the other side, not to see conflict as inevitable, accommodation as impossible, and communication as nothing more than an exchange of threats.

No government or social system is so evil that its people must be considered as lacking in virtue. As Americans, we find communism profoundly repugnant as a negation of personal freedom and dignity. But we can still hail the Russian people for their many achievements in science and space, in economic and industrial growth, in culture, in acts of courage.

Among the many traits the peoples of our two countries have in common, none is stronger than our mutual abhorrence of war. Almost unique among the major world powers, we have never been at war with each other. And no nation in the history of battle ever suffered more than the Soviet Union in the Second World War. At least 20 million lost their lives. Countless millions of homes and families were burned or sacked. A third of the nation's territory, including two thirds of its industrial base, was turned into a wasteland – a loss equivalent to the destruction of this country east of Chicago.

Today, should total war ever break out again – no matter how – our two countries will be the primary target. It is an ironic but accurate fact that the two strongest powers are the two in the most danger of devastation. All we have built, all we have worked for, would be destroyed in the first 24 hours. And even in the cold war, which brings burdens and dangers to so many countries, including this Nation's closest allies, our two countries bear the heaviest burdens. For we are both devoting massive sums of money to weapons that could be better devoted to combat ignorance, poverty, and disease. We are both caught up in a vicious and dangerous cycle, with suspicion on one side breeding suspicion on the other, and new weapons begetting counter-weapons. In short, both the United States and its allies, and the Soviet Union and its allies, have a mutually deep interest in a just and genuine peace and in halting the arms race. Agreements to this end are in the interests of the Soviet Union as well as ours. And even the most hostile nations can be relied upon to accept and keep those treaty obligations, and only those treaty obligations, which are in their own interest.

So let us not be blind to our differences, but let us also direct attention to our common interests and the means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's futures. And we are all mortal.

Third, let us reexamine our attitude towards the cold war, remembering we're not engaged in a debate, seeking to pile up debating points. We are not here distributing blame or pointing the finger of judgment. We must deal with the world as it is, and not as it might have been had the history of the last 18 years been different. We must, therefore, persevere in the search for peace in the hope that constructive changes within the Communist bloc might bring within reach solutions which now seem beyond us. We must conduct our affairs in such a way that it becomes in the Communists' interest to agree on a genuine peace. And above all, while defending our own vital interests, nuclear powers must avert those confrontations which bring an adversary to a choice of either a humiliating retreat or a nuclear war. To adopt that kind of course in the nuclear age would be evidence only of the bankruptcy of our policy – or of a collective death-wish for the world.

To secure these ends, America's weapons are nonprovocative, carefully controlled, designed to deter, and capable of selective use. Our military forces are committed to peace and disciplined in self-restraint. Our diplomats are instructed to avoid unnecessary irritants and purely rhetorical hostility. For we can seek a relaxation of tensions without relaxing our guard. And, for our part, we do not need to use threats to prove we are resolute. We do not need to jam foreign broadcasts out of fear our faith will be eroded. We are unwilling to impose our system on any unwilling people, but we are willing and able to engage in peaceful competition with any people on earth.

Meanwhile, we seek to strengthen the United Nations, to help solve its financial problems, to make it a more effective instrument for peace, to develop it into a genuine world security system – a system capable of resolving disputes on the basis of law, of insuring the security of the large and the small, and of creating conditions under which arms can finally be abolished. At the same time we seek to keep peace inside the non-Communist world, where many nations, all of them our friends, are divided over issues which weaken Western unity, which invite Communist intervention, or which threaten to erupt into war. Our efforts in West New Guinea, in the Congo, in the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent, have been persistent and patient despite criticism from both sides. We have also tried to set an example for others, by seeking to adjust small but significant differences with our own closest neighbors in Mexico and Canada.

Speaking of other nations, I wish to make one point clear. We are bound to many nations by alliances. Those alliances exist because our concern and theirs substantially overlap. Our commitment to defend Western Europe and West Berlin, for example, stands undiminished because of the identity of our vital interests. The United States will make no deal with the Soviet Union at the expense of other nations and other peoples, not merely because they are our partners, but also because their interests and ours converge. Our interests converge, however, not only in defending the frontiers of freedom, but in pursuing the paths of peace. It is our hope, and the purpose of allied policy, to convince the Soviet Union that she, too, should let each nation choose its own future, so long as that choice does not interfere with the choices of others. The Communist drive to impose their political and economic system on others is the primary cause of world tension today. For there can be no doubt that if all nations could refrain from interfering in the self-determination of others, the peace would be much more assured.

This will require a new effort to achieve world law, a new context for world discussions. It will require increased understanding between the Soviets and ourselves. And increased understanding will require increased contact and communication. One step in this direction is the proposed arrangement for a direct line between Moscow and Washington, to avoid on each side the dangerous delays, misunderstandings, and misreadings of others' actions which might occur at a time of crisis.

We have also been talking in Geneva about our first-step measures of arm[s] controls designed to limit the intensity of the arms race and reduce the risk of accidental war. Our primary long range interest in Geneva, however, is general and complete disarmament, designed to take place by stages, permitting parallel political developments to build the new institutions of peace which would take the place of arms. The pursuit of disarmament has been an effort of this Government since the 1920's. It has been urgently sought by the past three administrations. And however dim the prospects are today, we intend to continue this effort – to continue it in order that all countries, including our own, can better grasp what the problems and possibilities of disarmament are.

The only major area of these negotiations where the end is in sight, yet where a fresh start is badly needed, is in a treaty to outlaw nuclear tests. The conclusion of such a treaty, so near and yet so far, would check the spiraling arms race in one of its most dangerous areas. It would place the nuclear powers in a position to deal more effectively with one of the greatest hazards which man faces in 1963, the further spread of nuclear arms. It would increase our security; it would decrease the prospects of war. Surely this goal is sufficiently important to require our steady pursuit, yielding neither to the temptation to give up the whole effort nor the temptation to give up our insistence on vital and responsible safeguards.

I'm taking this opportunity, therefore, to announce two important decisions in this regard. First, Chairman Khrushchev, Prime Minister Macmillan, and I have agreed that high-level discussions will shortly begin in Moscow looking towards early agreement on a comprehensive test ban treaty. Our hope must be tempered – Our hopes must be tempered with the caution of history; but with our hopes go the hopes of all mankind. Second, to make clear our good faith and solemn convictions on this matter, I now declare that the United States does not propose to conduct nuclear tests in the atmosphere so long as other states do not do so. We will not – We will not be the first to resume. Such a declaration is no substitute for a formal binding treaty, but I hope it will help us achieve one. Nor would such a treaty be a substitute for disarmament, but I hope it will help us achieve it.

Finally, my fellow Americans, let us examine our attitude towards peace and freedom here at home. The quality and spirit of our own society must justify and support our efforts abroad. We must show it in the dedication of our own lives – as many of you who are graduating today will have an opportunity to do, by serving without pay in the Peace Corps abroad or in the proposed National Service Corps here at home. But wherever we are, we must all, in our daily lives, live up to the age-old faith that peace and freedom walk together. In too many of our cities today, the peace is not secure because freedom is incomplete. It is the responsibility of the executive branch at all levels of government – local, State, and National – to provide and protect that freedom for all of our citizens by all means within our authority. It is the responsibility of the legislative branch at all levels, wherever the authority is not now adequate, to make it adequate. And it is the responsibility of all citizens in all sections of this country to respect the rights of others and respect the law of the land.

All this – All this is not unrelated to world peace. "When a man's way[s] please the Lord," the Scriptures tell us, "He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him." And is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights: the right to live out our lives without fear of devastation; the right to breathe air as nature provided it; the right of future generations to a healthy existence?

While we proceed to safeguard our national interests, let us also safeguard human interests. And the elimination of war and arms is clearly in the interest of both. No treaty, however much it may be to the advantage of all, however tightly it may be worded, can provide absolute security against the risks of deception and evasion. But it can, if it is sufficiently effective in its enforcement, and it is sufficiently in the interests of its signers, offer far more security and far fewer risks than an unabated, uncontrolled, unpredictable arms race.

The United States, as the world knows, will never start a war. We do not want a war. We do not now expect a war. This generation of Americans has already had enough – more than enough – of war and hate and oppression.

We shall be prepared if others wish it. We shall be alert to try to stop it. But we shall also do our part to build a world of peace where the weak are safe and the strong are just. We are not helpless before that task or hopeless of its success. Confident and unafraid, we must labor on – not towards a strategy of annihilation but towards a strategy of peace.

35th President of the United States - John Fitzgerald Kennedy
