Common Words, Phrases & Terms The Left Has Twisted & Distorted That Christians & Conservatives Should Never Use (The “Dirty Dozen”)

0

Proverbs 12:6, “The words of ungodly men are crafty; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.” Hosea 6:5, “…I have slain them by the words of my mouth:” Psalms 12:6, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

In his book, “1984,” George Orwell warned that in the future words would be redefined and weaponized by the Left in their effort to establish a tyrannical dictatorship where government controlled and engineered group-think and consensus (called “newspeak” in the book) would replace individual thought and creativity. Despots and dictators have always known that those who control the meaning of words largely control the thoughts, attitudes, and behavior of society. In fact, the first sin ever committed resulted from God’s Word being twisted, distorted and manipulated when the Serpent (Satan) deceived Eve by making her question God’s clear and unambiguous command not to eat from the tree of Good and Evil. Here is a partial list of the most common words, terms and phrases that the Left has re-defined, twisted and distorted for the ultimate purpose of deceiving the masses and ultimately controlling them. Sadly, many self-professing Christians and conservatives frequently use many of these words and phrases and unwittingly perpetuate the deception the distortion of these words and phrases leads to. The purpose of this article is to list the most common words, terms and phrases as well as their real meanings in context with hopes that, in the future, Christians and conservatives use the proper words and terminology. Words, indeed, matter. May we all chose ours carefully. Here is what I refer to as the “Dirty Dozen” which is of course not an exhaustive list but the 12 I consider to be the most important to be aware of.

1. Democrats (A word used to describe those who belong to the Democrat Party and who subscribe to a democratic political ideology/philosophy. The problem with this term is that those in the modern day Democrat Party are mostly hard-core Communists and Socialists. When referring to modern day Democrats I recommend using the term, “Democrat-Socialists.”
2. Democracy– A word often used to describe America’s system of government. I cringe every time I hear any conservative use this term in this manner. America was initially established to be a Constitutional Republic. Pure Democracies are characterized by majority rule and often lead to “mob rule” as was the case in 18th century Revolutionary France. And while our nation has devolved into a “mob rule” Democracy in many ways we were not originally intended to be one. When referring to our form of government I recommend using the term, “Constitutional Republic.”
3. Progressives– A word often used to describe “liberals” and “Democrats” to convey that their political philosophy and objectives represent progress and, after all, who isn’t for progress? The reality, however, is that the “progressive” ideas they are talking about include killing pre-born babies, redefining marriage, criminalizing Christianity, and open borders. Instead of using the term progressive, I recommend the more accurate terms, “Democrat-Socialists,” “Globalists” “Statists” or “Neo-Marxists.”
4. Pro-choice– Word used by the Left to describe any one who believes abortion (killing a pre-born baby) is a constitutionally protected right. In reality, however, those who call themselves “pro-choice” are really just “pro-abortion” since the baby inside them has no choice in the matter. Instead of calling those in favor of abortion-on-demand “pro-choice” I recommend calling them “Pro-aborts.”
5. Legal-Democrat-Socialists use this word to describe anything that either a majority of legislators or voters votes for, or, alternatively, that any court rules in favor of. Again, Leftists believe “majority rules”/”might makes right.” The truth, however, is that for anything to be legal it must never violate the plain words of either the Constitution and, more importantly, the Divinely Revealed Word of God. For example, many on the Left (and far too many on the Right) will claim that “same-sex marriage” is legal because a court issued an opinion (Goodridge, Obergefell) saying that it is unconstitutional to prohibit people of the same-sex from marrying one another. But since no majority of voters, legislators or jurists possess the authority to re-define what God Himself has explicitly instituted, defined and ordained (i.e., that marriage is the exclusive union of one man and one woman) “same-sex marriage” can never be “legal.”
6. “The court legalized…”– This is a phrase I hear repeated frequently by Leftists and far too many conservatives and Christians who have all been taught the lie that courts can make law and that court opinions super-cede legitimately enacted laws, statutes and Constitutions. The main problem with this phrase (“the court legalized”) of course is that courts (judges) don’t possess the legal, moral or enumerated constitutional authority to make, amend or “strike down” any laws, statutes or Constitutions. They can issue administrative opinions on individual cases before them that are binding only on the two parties but it is a blatant lie to assert that a court opinion becomes the “law of the land” the very second it is issued. Suggested replacement phrase: “The court issued an opinion…”
7. “Separation of Church and State”– Term used by the Left to (falsely) convey that there can never be any mention of God or His Word in any public institution and that the 1st Amendment guarantees a “separation of church and state.” The only problem is that the 1st Amendment guarantees “freedom of religion” and not “freedom from religion” and that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The phrase “of church and state” was originally used by Thomas Jefferson to mollify the concerns of the Danbury (Connecticut) Baptists that the federal government would establish a national church but in no way even remotely implied that there could never be any Christian religious practice or influence in public/government institutions. The term “separation of church and state” does appear in a Constitution. The former Soviet Union’s (article 124).
8. “Radical Islam”– This is a term used by Leftists to “falsely” imply that normal (i.e.,non-radical) Islam is peaceful. But the truth is, that for anybody who is even remotely familiar with the explicit and imperative teachings of the Koran and Hadiths that Islam is inherently radical (i.e., that it promotes violence, destruction and death to all who refuse to submit to Islam.) There is only Islam. Radical Islam IS Islam! Instead of referring to those who commit acts of terrorism who shout Allahu Akbar “radical Muslims” or “radical Islamists” call them what they are…”Islamists” “Muslim Jihadists” or “Islamic Jihadists.”
9. Gay-The word “gay” used to mean a general feeling of “happiness” that has been redefined by the Leftists to describe a man who is attracted to and has sex with other men or a woman who is attracted and sex with other women. Suggested replacement words/terms, “homosexuals”, “same-sex attracted people” etc…
10. “Traditional Marriage”– Term used to describe marriage between one man and one woman. The only problem with this term is that the word “traditional” conveys that marriage is based on the “traditions of men” when in reality, marriage was originally defined, ordained and instituted by God Almighty Himself. Whenever Christians and conservatives use the phrase “traditional marriage” they falsely perpetuate this fallacy. Suggested word replacement: Marriage.
11. Transvestite– Term used to describe a male who has become a female and vice-versa. The main problem with this is that God has only created 2 types of human persons. Chicks and dudes:-) Males and females who have the equipment and DNA/chromosomal make up to prove it. Men such as Bruce Jenner who claim they are now women still possess the chromosomal make up of a man and can never be a woman no matter how much lipstick they put on themselves. Suggested word replacement: Cross dresser.
12. “States Rights”– States don’t have rights. People do. Proponents of “states rights” often invoke the 10th Amendment which states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Nowhere in the 10th Amendment is there any provision for any rights for the states. Rather, it recognizes that states have certain powers, an ability to do certain things. Even the 9th Amendment restricts rights to “the people” and not states. “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Instead of using the improper and inaccurate term “states rights,” conservatives and Christians should instead use the terms “checks and balances” and “federalism” both of which stipulate that the power of the government at both the state and federal levels is limited by the rights of individuals. When the federal government enacts laws that are unconstitutional, the states have the authority and duty to reject those laws to protect the rights of the people. Conversely, when individual states enact laws contrary to legitimately enacted federal laws that are in keeping with the Constitution, the federal government possesses the authority and duty to intervene, again, on behalf of the people of that particular state.

 

Supreme Court Right On Texas Abortion Law But For Wrong Reasons

0
The Supreme Court issued an opinion today that a Texas law requiring abortionists be hospital licensed to be unconstitutional. Reagan appointee Anthony Kennedy (the gift the keeps on giving) joined the other 4 leftists on the court in their majority opinion (authored by Steven Breyer) that:

We agree with the District Court that the surgical-center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an “undue burden” on their constitutional right to do so.

The majority opinion was correct. But for all the wrong reasons. The Texas law wasn’t unconstitutional because of the ludicrous requirement that baby butchers be properly credentialed by hospitals. The Texas law was unconstitutional because there is no Constitutional right to murder pre-born human persons at any stage of development since Roe v Wade is not the “law of the land” and never has been and allowing any type of abortion-related “procedure” violates the inalienable right to life for all innocent human persons from conception to natural death per the explicit and imperative requirements of the 5th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution which guarantees that no state shall violate “due process” and “equal protection of the laws” for any person without exception. No state possesses the authority to alienate inalienable rights. What is so sad is that so many self-described “constitutional conservatives” swallow and perpetuate the toxic liberal lie of Judicial Supremacy (i.e., that court opinions are the “law of the land” the very instant they are issued and must be obeyed, no matter how immoral, wicked or unconstitutional, by the other two superior branches.) And if you doubt the Founders originally designed the judiciary to be the “weakest of the 3 branches” read “Federalist 78” by Alexander Hamilton. The bottom line is that, ultimately, the Governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, is the chief law enforcement officer of the state of Texas and is primarily responsible for ensuring that the Federal and Texas state Constitutions’ “equal protection” and “due process” guarantees be faithfully enforced and applied to every innocent human person in the state of Texas (no matter how tiny)…without exception! Babies are dying daily in Texas because Governor Abbott daily permits it (as do all 49 other state governors). We should expect immoral, illegal and anti-Constitutional opinions from the (majority) leftist Supreme Court. But is it too much to expect that self-professing “pro-life constitutional conservative Christians” such as Abbott actually abide by their oath and DO THEIR JOB especially when it comes to protecting and defending the most sacred right all human beings possess? The right to their own lives?

“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. …The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.” (Thomas Jefferson)

“…the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution. … [T]he judiciary … has no influence over either the sword or purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL…” (Alexander Hamilton)

“..if the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal actions, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their government, into the hands of that eminent tribunal.” (Abraham Lincoln)

 

3 Questions for Trump

0
It’s great that Trump has pledged to roll back Obamacare, build a wall and place a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration (which should be permanent)but here are 3 questions I’d like to hear him answer that are infinitely more vital… 1. As president will you ignore/reject all unconstitutional court opinions such as Roe and Obergefell since court opinions are not the “law of the land” and since courts don’t make law? 2. As president will your justice department investigate and prosecute Planned Parenthood for killing babies and selling their body parts? 3. As president will you reject immoral, unconstitutional, and legally null and void Roe v Wade and enforce and restore the God given right to life for ALL innocent human persons (from conception to natural death) without exception per the explicit requirements of the 5th and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution per your sworn oath as Governor Huckabee pledged to do in the 1st Fox News debate? In other words, will you or will you not END the Abortion Holocaust in America? Or will you allow it to continue unabated?

Introduction to my new book “40 Things to Teach Your Children Before You Die”

0

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States, where men were free.” —President Ronald W. Reagan

One of my greatest burdens and desires as a father is for my eight-year-old son to grow up honoring God with his life, knowing right from wrong, and acting on that knowledge. I am far more interested in his character than I am in which college he attends or his profession. I am sure that I am not alone. In fact, if you are reading these words, you too must possess that same burden and sense of obligation that I do, to pass on the same truths that have guided the best parts of your life to your children, so that they may know the truth, and that their lives will glorify God. During most of American history, when a biblical worldview prevailed, much of the information in this book was common knowledge, even among non-Christians. But we live in a day where “good has become evil and evil good,” where “everyone does what is right in his own eyes.” A time when quoting God’s Word in public can literally get you arrested for a “hate crime.” And that is precisely why I am writing this book—to arm you, the parent, with what I believe to be among the most important biblical truths that we can pass on to the next generation, the stuff that they are never going to learn in most schools, from the media, and sadly, in many churches. These are the types of things they must understand and apply if they have any hope of living a life of faith in an increasingly dark cultural and spiritual climate, the most important truths that I would share with my son if I were on my deathbed. My sincere hope and prayer is that Christian parents share this politically incorrect book with their children so that the next generation may be adequately prepared to defend biblical truth for the advancement of the Gospel and biblical truth in general—the only real antidote for what really ails America and the rest of the world.
