CRASH OR WAR?

The victor doesn't owe the vanquished on any debts. Victory clears debts for the victor. So what is going on?

The U.S. economy has been scientifically driven toward a mixed crash. Some sectors will be hit and others helped (helped from the capitalist's perspective). Some exports will be helped. The trade deficit will be helped. The usurers have gotten the timing of the cycles down more and more so that in the global economy, they can have one area of the world going up while another is going down and different sectors within each going up and down, all of which they can maximize to their own private, insider advantage.

The dollar's fall makes U.S. exports more attractive overseas. It should boost tourism despite so-called travel security. Export jobs should increase. What are they making? What can they make without raw-materials and processing to match? Will they obtain those peacefully and do it wisely? Will they make the pollution situation worse? Some things will seem to be getting better, but overall, things are going to continue getting worse, because the people aren't having a fast enough or deep enough change of heart. The leadership remains evil. Although there are signs that hearts are softening. For instance, young Jews in the U.S. are reportedly expressing dissatisfaction with the neocon policies of Israel toward the Palestinians. They don't like the brutality that is so Nazi-like.

The U.S. is driving toward attacking Iran.

The U.S. Senate approval as the nation's top lawyer someone who refused to say waterboarding is torture.

The U.S. is still backing the military coup in Pakistan.

The U.S. so-called War on Terror is just a terrorizing war for Empire it can't afford unless it takes huge quantities of oil from the region to lower costs in the U.S. Of course, the world bankers are really the ones calling the shots via where they let the money flow versus where they'll cut it off.

Using more, cheaper oil to stimulate the U.S. economy will worsen the environmental situation.

The U.S. is embarking upon more and more intrusion into privacy in anticipation of dictatorship.

We have prosperity preachers saying that just because their lifestyles are excessive doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong.

However, excess is wrong. God isn't showering anyone with such private riches. Satan is.

So, how are the scales tipping?

The following should appear at the end of every post:

According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":

Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.

Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.

Political Campaign Intervention

Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.

Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.

Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:

  • Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
  • Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
  • Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
  • Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
  • Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office

Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:

  • The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
  • Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
  • We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
  • When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
  • It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
  • We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
  • We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
  • When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
  • We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
  • It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
