Elitists Don’t Hold Americans in “High Regard”

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on October 15, 2020

More than a present struggle against “leftist ideology” in our day is a struggle against elitism. Wikipedia has a good definition of it:

Elitism is the belief or notion that individuals who form an elite—a select group of people described as having an intrinsic quality, high intellect, wealth, special skills, or experience—are more likely to be constructive to society as a whole, and therefore deserve influence or authority greater than that of others. The term elitism may be used to describe a situation in which power is concentrated in the hands of a limited number of people. Oppositions of elitism include anti-elitism, egalitarianism, populism, and political theory of pluralism.

Nothing personifies the above definition more than Kamala Harris. I believe this is one of many reasons that the Biden/Harris ticket will be soundly rejected in November. It would seem that circa 2016 marks a time in American history where the people of this nation are beginning to understand what makes the political elitist class tick, and they by no means like what they see.

For the most part, the American media has lost all creditability, but because they are one of the pillars of the elitist class, they are unable to discern that to be the case. Even on Fox News, they continue to point to the national election polls with no mention of how wrong the polls were in 2016. Yes, elitists think the commoners are that stupid.

In Kamala Harris’ debate with Mike Pence last week, she exposed the fact that she doesn’t even believe Americans are smart enough to use Google. She totally made up history out of whole cloth and thought she would get away with it. In fact, the RNC gang didn’t even bother to make an issue of the event, apparently, knowing the the absurdity of it was self-evident to everyone watching. I will close with a Face Book screen shot that states it well:

The Philosophy of the Reformation and Its Historical Impact, by John Immel – Part 1

Posted in Uncategorized by Andy Young, PPT contributing editor on October 8, 2020

Taken from John Immel’s first session at the 2012 Conference on Gospel Discernment and Spiritual Tyranny”

Throughout my life I have been involved in various flavors of Christianity, and I continually found myself running up against the same interaction over and over and over. And, of course, for the longest time the easy criticism was, “It’s you. You’re the problem.” There are a lot of doctrines within Christianity that affirm that – yeah, it’s probably you. If there is a problem, you are probably the problem.

But then I began to realize that the same problem exists whether I’m involved in the social dynamic or not.

How is that possible? How is it possible that I can go from denomination to denomination to denomination – from Word of Faith to Charismatic to Baptist to Methodist – and it didn’t matter?

After much thinking I arrived at what I believe is the root of all failed human actions.

WHY DO DEMOCRATS ACT LIKE THEY DO?

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on October 6, 2020

In 2012 at our first TANC conference, John Immel had a three-part thesis for his presentations. First, all of reality is interpreted through presuppositions about mankind. Second, those presuppositions determine ideology. Third, that ideology drives all actions.

The presupposition about mankind that drives the ideology of the Democrat Party follows: mankind is unable to self-rule; individuals are totally unable to do good. Those who believe this about mankind and look to the elitists for guidance see themselves as humble and morally superior. Hence, they will allow their lives to be destroyed by tyranny posing as moral orthodoxy.

Consequently, their political actions follow: man must be compelled by force to do good and contribute to the collective. Furthermore, this is why they continue to resort to the same failed strategies over and over again: because they refuse to change their foundational presuppositions that drive their actions. Therefore, the actions must eventually work if tried enough times.

This is why they are using the same strategy that failed so miserably in 1972. They believe the strategy was not applied in a strong enough dose. The medicine didn’t work because the dose was wrong. Their prescription will never change, just a demand for a stronger dose until the ideology is proven correct.

It didn’t work in 2016 when, if you take a look at some of the news footage and videos, Hillary Clinton was drawing some decent crowds and was a respectable candidate by Democrat standards.

If Donald Trump remains healthy, 2020 is a looming disaster for the Democrats. And, the aforementioned is why 1972 didn’t teach them anything, nor will 2020 because tyrants will NEVER change their presuppositions about humanity.

And beside that, if they did, it would force them to overcome their incessant lust for power.
