“The Vampire” FidoTheCastro has finally faded, but not “his enormous impact”

The true legacy of Marxism is that people dance in the streets when its dictators die, while at the same time its other defeated presidential candidates cause riots in the streets. The truly incredible possibility is that the Clinton/Obama/Sanders/Marx Tribunal for Tyranny cannot actually see the reality of fifty years of Castro’s megalomaniacal reign of tyranny. Indeed, properly stated, this is not-credible, since it is evident to anyone who can see, hear, and understand the facts easily found in free America, of countless political prisoners and deaths, national control of everything in the economy and education that created dire poverty and degradation of human life for all except for those in power.

“The viper” struck at the very life-blood of his own people, exiling nearly a million of them, while at the same time gaining praise from Americans who seem(ed) blind to the horrors. It can really only mean that these American Mercedes-Marxists actually want the same for us, or in the least to reduce America to a powerless player in the world. We can only wonder about their motives, but we do see the realities of their ideologies all around us, and especially in the city-plantations of dependency and poverty and brokenness.

And yet, the praise continues from many corners: The Communist Party, according to The Daily News, says that “Cuban citizens can ‘pay homage and sign the solemn oath of fulfilling the concept of revolution as an expression of the will to continue Castro’s ideas and our socialism,’ the Cuban Communist Party announced” (The Daily News). Unwilling to state the truth about this tyrant, our own President Obama, said in his classic crypto legalese: “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.” Though God of course is this man’s judge, not “history”, can we not at least quite easily judge this wicked man’s ideologies and actions?


An election week postscript on the credulity of the Progressive Mercedes-Marxists in our times who run our cities and control our Federal Government

In our time, in most places on the earth, the Marxist gospel has been spread with a subversive and ruthless sword, but in the constitutional republic of America, thus far, it has largely been advanced with a silver tongue that masks a spiteful heart (to get elected). This mission has been possible without any need for gulags or prison camps. 

In our time, the extraordinary Clinton/Obama/Sanders type credulity is the uncompromising creed that their Socialistic theocracy has relieved poverty, rather than created it. This delusionary belief may, or may not, be sincerely embraced by all who claim it, but its messianic propaganda has been widely received by those convinced that they will be beneficiaries of a benevolent dictatorship of government largesse. For the recipients who follow this doctrine, it is not necessary to understand that state ownership of the means of production, and its massive, forced redistribution of wealth, has in the past resulted in the totalitarian control of everything. Willing converts to this faith frequently discover too late that they have become the property of those engineering the Socialistic reconstruction of the economy, who in the process must create sufficient poverty for the masses to become dependents in a vicious cycle of votes given in order to assure basic needs of food, shelter, health-care, and education.

In our time, these zealous neo-Marxists have in reality created an enormous plantation right in our midst, in nearly every American city, enslaving faithful millions who willingly surrender their votes in hope. Their misplaced hope is of salvation from grinding poverty (even hunger) and social degradation: arguably, the very best products of Progressive ideology. It does not seem to occur to the devotees that their Rulers’ systems are perfectly designed to get the results they are getting, and that all such societies must inevitably perish along with the martyrs to their false economies.

The most bitter venom of these new Master-priests of societal and economic engineering is reserved for any who digress from their orthodoxy, maligning them as those who do not care about the plight of the Progressives’ impoverished and needy congregations. Indeed, they falsely characterize opponents of the socialist faith as enemies of their opiated, dependent millions.

In reality, for all who do care, recent history in the USSR (and China, North Korea, Vietnam, etc.) should remind us that the Marxists there have taught us well how to reduce the majority of the faithful population to abject misery and hopelessness by creating sufficient poverty and total dependency. It hardly needs mentioning that this scenario requires the social engineers of this failed experiment to retain their own great power and prosperity to manage it all. Yet, I am compelled this election week to make note that in America, the most prosperous and free land in history, that these elected Progressives have, right under our noses, created miseries unmatched even in the Communist nations. These sad tales include spiritual, moral, economic degradation, and violence on a scale that only Josef Stalin could fully appreciate. To deny this direct link between their ideology and its fruit is one of the worse kinds of their dissembling; it is not simply disingenuous. In regards to violence, there are hundreds of murders every year in every American, third-world inner-city plantation (the disastrous Progressives’ “Projects”); there has been genocidal violence against millions of their unborn, minority children, intentionally concentrated where the clinics of “termination” are mostly located. Adding further injury, countless families have been divided by the Socialist Welfare policies of cutting off payments when any sign of a male presence is discovered in the home of women with children, further impoverishing the family and destroying opportunity. To cope with their hopeless captivity, millions there have also become addicted to drugs in desperation. Baltimore alone estimates some 70,000 addicts. Is it then not a marvel that anchors on Chanel 11 still gush about a “Baltimore uprising,” romanticizing drug dealers and anarchists who took control of a few of our city blocks for a weekend back in 2015? The dealers strategically targeted and emptied many liquor stores and pharmacies, while the anarchists fomented violence and burned buildings in the name of Marxian theology, dramatically escalating the drug-war casualties since. Is this the best Progressives can offer us? This was no revolution, nor even a “race riot,” in any sense of the word. And those most hurt were the elderly and their neighborhood pharmacies which depend upon a free, market economy, the very front and center object of the attack. Those most enervated and energized were the Leftists-on-the-Street who are the unwitting, prophetic mouth-piece for the theocrats’ Progressive message. True to character, they have sought to revise the facts of reality to assure at the polls that they will retain, and gain more, power for very real oppressors who will continue this cyclic, downward Progress of economic and social impoverishment.

As we go to the polls,
this may sound rather alarmist,
because it is.

The Double-Speak Lexicon of Empress Hillary and Deposed Billary


  • “investment”: Socialization (state ownership of the means of production and total-taxation) of as much of the economic infrastructure as possible, so as to limit private investment in the economy by (evil)Capitalists on Wall Street (though we still like their contributions to our coffers).
  • “jobs”: government socialization of as much labor as possible to “create” jobs through aggressive taxation of those already working.
  • “lower taxes”: raise all taxes
  • “corporate America”: the (evil)people from whom we must siphon as much money as possible, while at the same time condemning (wicked)“Wall Street” (in order to get the Anarchists’ vote), though many there willingly funnel large piles of cash into our (benevolent)expense accounts.
  • “universal health care”: assured, progressive bankruptcy of the U.S. Treasury (and the impoverished middle class tax-payers) to create the maximum tax-payer dependence on the government through Socializing of the economy, while decreasing the quality of health care for everyone, by forcing every American to buy a (benevolent)product that they do not want, and then punishing them (with our kindly beneficence of great wisdom in our subjects’ care) through a hefty fine for refusing to purchase it.
  • “Social-security”: same as above. Eventual, complete Socialization of personal finances for all. Security is found through greater impoverishment and lessened anxiety about managing one’s own finances through the kindly wisdom of our Great Mother.
  • “Free college”: (evil)wealthy people will pay to continue public high-school indoctrination and “socialization” (of all the miscreants that high-school failed to socialize), to further impoverish the middle class and assure the decline of quality in education for their children, since we must assure the decline of (Evil) “American Exceptionalism.”
  • liberation” and “freedom: personal, moral, spiritual freedom from all traditional (especially mean Judeo-Christian religious) constraints so as to encourage Islamic Jihadists on our shores to increase the chaos of social anarchy, in order to secure total(itarian) control by our benevolent Empress. This should include the greatest degree possible of enslavement to government funding, including governance of proper bathroom use, and propitious fines for all who transgress the language laws controlling speech (and incorrect thought) and the new definitions of “family,” “marriage,” male” and “female,” “men’s room” and “ladies’ room,” and “sin.”
  • “marriage, family, and children”: total moral freedom for absolute sexual liberation, to eliminate all “traditional” marital boundaries, having redefined “male” and “female.” This must include death-on-demand for all unwanted pre-born babies, even into late-terms for “problematic” pregnancies. No government should have the power to stop free men and women from killing these unborn folk.
  • “Supreme Court”: the supreme means to redefine reality for my subjects. Appoint sufficiently compliant truth-managers.
  • “Democracy”: an imperial Empress ruling over the world and her deposed Emperor who inhabit a Pent-house on Pennsylvania Avenue. There is no need to re-count the vote.
  • “national security”: use unsecured servers for top-secret emails (to assure they get hacked). Posture as “anti-colonial” by weakening U.S. military strength, gaining the trust of those to whom we promise more arms and money.
  • “Islam”: a (benevolent)religion of love, peace, charity, and joy.
  • “terrorist”: a (benevolent), though a bit extreme, member of the religion of Islam.
  • “border control reform”: build some walls to suggest that illegally crossing the border will assure the 11,000,000 that amnesty is just a vote away.
  • “hemispheric common-trade”: to assure that border crossings guarantee that most U.S. industry-labor goes abroad, while at the same brilliant stroke provide free health-care and education for all those 11,000,000 “undocumented” (nice) people who are happy to be on this side of Border-Control.
  • “pro America”: assure that America is as weak as possible in the eyes of the world-governments to pre-empt their feeling that they are on the defensive or threatened by our (benevolent)Empire.
  • “national security”: weaken the US military enough to lesson Islamic, and others’, fears of American hegemony, while also appeasing the anarchists who hate those (evil)Wall Street supporters we depend upon to fund our benevolent foundations that keep us in power.
  • “political reform”: appoint as many friends as possible to government offices, so long as they help us raise taxes, lower the GDP, and frighten Christian school boys with penalties who refuse to use the ladies’ room.
  • “total transparency”: lie, lie again, and then lie again, in the hope that everyone(important) might believe it for their own benefit. This is otherwise known as “stretching the truth,” but most (moronic)Americans will miss the irony of that (malevolent)oxymoron.

Protests in Baltimore After Funeral Held For Baltimore Man Who Died While In Police Custody

At this link above there are some good examples (from the Daily Caller) of what I referred to on FB about news anchors saying such stupid things like “I do not approve of the violence, but . . .” [fill in the blanks with idiotic things like “it is understandable” or “all this pent-up anger results from copcarselfietheir disadvantages and oppression.”]

There are many pictures of guys smashing cars in order to get their I-Phone “selfies” with them.
But, I do not get the common crotch-holding gesture. It must be some deep political statement . . .

Oppression and Slavery in the Ancient Near East and the Bible


To read entire presentation click here: Oppression and Slavery in the Ancient Near East and the Bible by Stephen Hague

At our recent Fall Seminar (see resources at FTS website[coming soon]) on oppression and slavery at the Seminary, I presented the introductory thoughts on the subject of slavery in the ancient world and the Bible.

Slavery and oppression have been a ubiquitous part of the human experience practically since the beginning. The question I ask is simple: how does the biblical gospel address this? It is my thesis that if the Bible is used as a source for the justification of human enslavement and oppression, then if we honestly and carefully examine this it rather actually contains the seeds of its own undoing. That is, in contrast to those who claim that the Bible justifies human enslavement (and the forms we had in Europe and America), I suggest that the Bible and its laws contain the very ideas that eventually brought about the outlawing of slavery in most parts of the world today.

BC_sex-trafficking-portraitAt the seminar, we covered the three major historical periods of human slavery that have logical connections between them: in Part I, I discussed briefly some of the A.N.E. and biblical context as background for considering the modern Atlantic slave trade (that only became illegal only in the nineteenth century). In Part II, other presenters addressed  the Christian role in fighting to outlaw that trade and human enslavement in England and America. Both subjects set the stage to consider in Part III the grim realities of human oppression, trafficking, and slavery today that continue relentlessly in our own back-yards.
