Propaganda Ocean: The drowning of truth
“Americans have a problem with the truth. They seem to be unable to accept it…Beliefs and lies somehow always overwhelm truth, even when they are so contradictory that any effective action becomes impossible. A kind of national, psychological paralysis occurs. Nothing can be done because one belief contradicts another, and for some unknown reason, the facts don’t matter.” John Kozy
“Today Americans are ruled by propaganda. Americans have little regard for truth, little access to it, and little ability to recognize it. Truth is an unwelcome entity. It is disturbing. It is off limits. Those who speak it run the risk of being branded ‘anti-American,’ ‘anti-semite’ or ‘conspiracy theorist.’ Truth is an inconvenience for government and for the interest groups whose campaign contributions control government. Truth is an inconvenience for prosecutors who want convictions, not the discovery of innocence or guilt.” Paul Craig Roberts
“Isn’t it great to live in a society where the penalty for lying to a congressman can be up to 30 years in jail, but the penalty for a congressman lying to you is another two years in office.” Baltimore sports writer’s comment on the indictment of Roger Clemens.
From my early years I have been interested in authenticity. I hate affectations, hidden agendas, and false concerns. Early in my business career I was involved with contractors who provided quality work at competitive prices. You could depend on their candid reaction to your presence – they liked some and disliked others. I preferred them.
Christianity brought a confrontation with truth; The Truth. Though in my early Christian life emotion commanded truth as I matured I began to understand that God is Truth, His Word is Truth, and His Law is Truth. He is the embodiment of Truth. He and His Word are the scales under which humanity was created to live. Obedience produces freedom, righteousness, and peace; disobedience produces anarchy and tyranny.
Authentic Christianity can be determining its foundation and its intent. Is it Biblically based or does it teeter on the sands of human opinion. Does it emphasize what God will do for His people or what His people will do for Him? Is it aimed at securing an obedient Christian body or is it seeker friendly If it fails to link salvation with obedience the church is in the hands of the Evil One. John Kozy writes, “Beliefs and lies somehow always overwhelm truth, even when they are so contradictory that any effective action becomes impossible.” Christianity is pregnant with erroneous beliefs that defy the Bible and trash the sterling theology our forefathers left us. When Dr. Rushdoony wrote that law forms the religious base of society and all law is religious he expressed a foundational truth. The idea that God’s Law does not apply to our time leaves human law as the only alternative. Human law requires society to obey the creature rather than the Creator.
There is a corollary between the deterioration of our government and the deterioration of the Christian church. The government ignores the Constitution and the recommendations of the Founders while the Church ignores the wisdom of the Reformers and the large portions of God’s Word. Both institutions seem to have become mired in a pubertious arrogance.
The Bible is a narrative it is not a series of dispensations. It provides concrete examples of the results of obedience and disobedience and climaxes with the birth of the Savior, with forgiveness, and salvation. God gave us His Word that we might prosper in peace and righteousness by abiding by His Commandments. We can decide not to do so but we will then be forced to endure the consequences.

Out of retirement, Paul Craig Roberts begins an essay entitled “The Collapse of Western Morality” with this paragraph: “In hopes that I will be permitted to make a point, permit me to acknowledge that the US dropped nuclear bombs on two Japanese cities, fire-bombed Tokyo, that Great Britain and the US fire-bombed Dresden and a number of other German cities, expending more destructive force, according to some historians, against the civilian German population than against the German armies, that President Grant and his Civil War were war criminals, Generals Sherman and Sheridan, committed genocide against the Plains Indians, that the US today enables Israel’s genocidal policies against the Palestinians, policies that one Israeli official has compared to 19th century US genocidal policies against the American Indians, that the US in the new 21st century invaded Iraq and Afghanistan on contrived pretenses, murdering countless numbers of civilians, and that British prime minister Tony Blair lent the British army to his American masters, as did other NATO countries, all of whom find themselves committing war crimes under the Nuremberg standard in lands in which they have no national interests, but for which they receive an American pay check.” Read the entire article here.
Not a noticeable Christian, Roberts puts on paper truth that should be coming from the Christian Church. Though he does not list the Church’s vile distortion of the Christian Gospel or the scourges of abortion and homosexuality he does provide a list of national sins that the church should acknowledge.
Kozy points out that presenting both sides of an issue does not produce truth. Two opposing sides produce neither truth nor righteousness; only conflict. Two party politics precludes righteousness replacing sound government with vituperation and extraneous wrangling. All the negative campaign rhetoric only produces a conclusion that neither candidate is suitable for office. The same principle applies to our courts where two lawyers seeking victory do not produce justice. Innocents are regularly convicted and the guilty go free. Here, here and here.
The Novakeo Website recently published a document that pinpointed one of the most distorted facts of our time. While being vigorously denied in public conspiracy is, in fact, everywhere evident. It is a universal human sin that plagues families, frightens schools children, is pandemic in churches, common in business, pervasive in social organizations, and everywhere in the halls of government. There are several who properly rail against the travesties in our society but claim they do not believe in conspiracies. Whatever their motive they are mislead.
Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University, a mentor to former President Clinton, wrote in his book “Tragedy and Hope”, “There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the Radical right believes the Communists act…I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies… but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.”
In his book entitled “Propaganda” Edward Bernays wrote, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
David Rockefeller wrote in “Memoirs”, “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
Although David Rockefeller was not one of the founders of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) he has devoted many of his considerable years using it to promote internationalism. The CFR was founded by Colonel Edward House, a close confidant of President Woodrow Wilson and a Marxist oriented totalitarian confirmed in the pages of his book “Philip Dru: Administrator”. House was joined by Walter Lippman, an intellectual writer and reporter who compared the “masses” to a “great beast” and “bewildered herd” requiring control by a governing class.
Dr. Dennis Cuddy and John Loeffler have provided a chronology of the New World Order at this site.
The outward manifestations of this conspiracy are difficult to overlook; the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg meetings, and the various international summits where elite leaders discuss the future of the world. One need only consider the events that preceded the United States invasion of the Middle East and understand that the Muslim nations of the Middle East are the only part of the world that is not under the influential tentacles of the shadowy powers that are arranging the death of the United States. Does anyone think for a minute that President George W. Bush independently conceived the invasion of Iraq? Why has President Obama defied his own promises by continuing the Middle East War? Why does congress vote for treaties that diminish our sovereignty when they have sworn an oath to support our Constitution? Edward Bernays has given us the answer: “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”
Now, gentle reader, is you are a Christian consider the death of your Savior. Jesus gave His life for our salvation but the vehicle that resulted in His murder was a conspiracy!
On the 13th of September, by the Grace of God I completed my 81st year. I, as many of my fellow octogenarians, have accumulated a series of physical problems. Arthritis struck early while I was still in my fifties and has now badly crippled one knee and is evident in the other as well as both ankles, neck, and hands. Prostate problems began in my early sixties culminating in cancer in my early seventies. A skin cancer was removed from my cheek, I have GERD, high blood pressure, and as a birthday present they found a small “density” in my left lung. The CT scan revealed calcification in the arteries into the heart, cysts on the kidneys, and a swollen prostate. The report listed my liver, spleen, pancreas, adrenal glands, bladder, and seminal vesicles as “unremarkable” – my wife laughed at the term, but, considering their age and the abuse they have endured, they are really quite “remarkable”.
My father died sixty years ago and my mother’s death twenty-five years ago seems like yesterday. The time to pass the torch has come into view. My life is in the hands of the King Who has seen fit to keep this unprofitable servant for all of these years!
The maladies are being treated and, in spite of an occasional momentary depression, I am living peacefully with them. I am healthy for my age. The lung spot is very small, a little over a quarter of an inch in size. Another scan in December will determine what will be done, if anything.
