Who are the heroes of the Venezuelan resistance?
What are they fighting for? Are they fighting for freedom or are the only fighting against Nicolas Maduro?

Artistic Process: I repeated the various steps described in the three previous posts of this series, adding movement to my painting. This time I spattered deep-shaded, red paint onto the opposite side of my canvas. Then… as I looked upon my painting, all I saw was blood… It shook me to the bone. With such deception and anger amongst us, I can’t help but fear we are on the precipice of violence with the recent rise in the socialist militant movement of left-wing, fascist totalitarianism. When it comes to communism, history always repeats itself.
“The democratic socialist Eduard Bernstein issued a warning at the turn of the nineteenth century to his fellow Marxists. The danger of a ‘truly miraculous belief in the creative power of force,’ he prophesied, is that you begin by doing violence to reality in theory, and end up by doing violence to people in practice.”
“What distinguishes the new communism is that its leading partisans are fully aware of that potential…and embrace it as a strategy.”

This is the fourth and final installation of an in-depth, investigative series looking into Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives. You can find the first post HERE, the second post HERE, and the third post HERE.
This process began with a visit to the #BLM official website. I have discussed the death of a friend’s grandson which was caused by injuries inflicted by a police officer. I have also described my disappointment and subsequent mourning process after having discovered the true intentions of the Black Lives Matter and Movement for Black Lives organizations. Together, you and I have examined the communist philosophy which is behind these groups, and their devastating goals for the God-given family. I have presented the proof of the communist allegiances of the groups’ leaders and the communist funding that continues to move their movement forward – using constant deceit and disinformation (dezinformatsiya) to trick us into jumping aboard their Marxist train which is steaming ahead toward a violent revolution. Together, we have also explored the sinister motives behind those who support the devastating ideology of communism, especially activists like James Cone and Cornel West who seek to victimize, exploit and foment hatred in the hearts of the black, Christian community. We have learned that devotees of socialism will, like Saul Alinsky, employ all levels of trickery to lead us astray, including the false-labeling of their goals, framing issues in emotional terms such as “equality,” “liberation,” etc.
Now, it is time to fully consider what a socialist future would be like, AND to finally examine the explicit platform and demands that have been publicly declared and are listed on the website of the Movement for Black Lives. We will have to confront what their goals mean and how those goals will truly impact our lives.

DID YOU KNOW?
Romania’s capitalist economy was once so successful that it was even referred to as “Le Petit Paris.” All of that ended on August 15, 1947, “when Vasile Luca, the Communist Party’s Politburo member in charge of Romania’s economy, suddenly and without warning converted the country’s venerable old currency, called the leu, into a new socialist leu. Each Romanian, regardless of how much money he had owned, now received just the same small amount of the new currency. From one day to the next, there were no longer any capitalists in Romania, which on December 30, 1947, was declared a socialist country (Pacepa & Rychlak, 2016). Thirty years later, “Romania – once the second largest oil producer in Europe – had rationed gasoline, the temperature in public places during the winter was limited to 63 degrees Fahrenheit, and all shops were required to close at 5:30 p.m. to save energy. Life in Ceausescu’s Romania became so unbearable that – according to UN statistics – the country had come to lead the world in the rate of suicides” (Pacepa & Rychlak, 2016). Ceausescu was executed in 1989 for genocide.
How old will you be in 30 years, or 20 years, or 10 years? Is it your wish to be among a new statistic – just another casualty of the new, communist America?
Does this system exemplify your values? Is this what you envision for the future of your country, yourself, your children?
“Socialism has to be international. It’s impossible to create socialism in one country, surrounded by a world capitalist market.”

THE CLOWARD-PIVEN METHOD: THEN AND NOW
“In 1966, sociologists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven called for the overloading of the U.S. welfare system to force the potential collapse of our Democratic Republic government and end poverty by the government ‘guaranteeing an annual income for all Americans.’ [universal basic income, UBI] This is communism – a godless human government where the state is the ultimate entity to be worshiped and obeyed…”
“Cloward-Piven believed in forcing political change through orchestrated crisis and not surprisingly, they were both members of the Democratic Socialists of America.” ~Pastor Saiko Woods
Jump to October 2016:
President Obama has now begun bringing the subject of a UBI into the conversation, encouraging its creation by insinuating that a UBI would be the best response to the coming crisis of artificial intelligence.
President Obama’s healthcare plan has been successful too. Having almost collapsed the healthcare market ( a “crisis!” ), there is a bigger and bigger push to adopt a “single-payer” system of “universal healthcare.” We are told to close our eyes and not look at the financially drowning healthcare in Great Britain, where rationing has begun, or any other such cases of failed central planning.
(Note: All must be implemented through either governmental force, government regulations or legislation, or a violent, citizen revolution.)
We are now ready to examine the platform of the Movement for Black Lives (focusing on the communist intentions therein). I will list each stated platform demand and then briefly present several of the specific suggestions offered for each. The below information can be found on the group’s website.
Each stated demand is implicitly founded on an exaggerated sense of victimhood. Inflammatory language, utilized in the demands below, is a literary trick upon the mind, a betrayal upon the mind of the readers, so that hurt and emotion will override any typically rational person. Victimhood is the precise goal of these agitators: to continually victimize the black community whom they wish to exploit. They are wolves among sheep. Anger and hatred towards other groups or institutions can cause good people to suspend their sense of morality and, thus, are vital to instigating violence against others.
A) “Full and free access for all Black people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education including: free access and open admissions to public community colleges and universities, technical education (technology trade and agriculture), educational support programs, retroactive forgiveness of student loans, and support for lifetime learning programs” — Government, taxpayer funding to “cover all living costs, including but not limited to housing, transportation, childcare, healthcare, and food for students.” Government must “provide full access to all undocumented people.” Pass a bill through congress that would give “undocumented people” state and federal money to provide for and “to cover all tuition, fees, and living costs.” The President should “issue an executive order abolishing all” student debt.
Here’s the math based on the latest statistics:
*Note: The “Room and Board” cost does NOT include all of the other “living expenses” that the Movement for Black Lives is demanding. (I did not include healthcare, food, transportation, childcare, etc…)
$9,410 + $8,887 = $18,297
52,470,000 X $18,296 = $960,043,590,000 (over $960 BILLION dollars – almost ONE TRILLION DOLLARS!)
$6.48 trillion – $960,043,590,000 = $5,519,956,410,000
B) “A guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people” — A “Universal Basic Income (UBI)” must be enacted to provide every single adult, in America and globally, with an income. This UBI does not “have any work requirements” of individuals to receive this income. This is one of the major planks of the new communist movement worldwide. Plus, “a pro-rated additional amount” of money should be given to all black Americans. The authors declare their disdain for capitalism, and use a familiar method (a smoke screen) for discrediting the American economy and her institutions by claiming that America is racist at her core. “America’s deep-rooted system of racial capitalism,” they say, drives “unequal economic outcome” which is, predictably, “structural racism.” For this reason, the American economy and the economy of all other capitalist countries must be replaced with socialism (Marxism/communism). “No other social or economic policy solution today would be of efficient scale to eradicate the profound and systemic economic inequities afflicting Black communities.” This would of course require raising income taxes, “taxes on public goods like air,” and defunding various other societal institutions, specifically “criminal justice institutions.” Of course, even if all of these efforts at capturing the revenue to provide a UBI were enacted, there would never be enough money to actually execute this plan without creating worldwide poverty and devastation.
Here’s the math: Since the Democratic Party is seeking $15 p/h minimum wage as being a “living wage”, I will use that number as a base starting point.
15 X 40 = $600 Per Week Income for 1 Person
$600 X 52 = $31,200 Income for 1 Person for 1 Year
$31,200 X 41,470,000 = $1,293,864,000,000 (over 1 TRILLION dollars)
*Every single year, we would need over 1 TRILLION dollars just to provide a UBI to black Americans alone, excluding all other Americans and excluding all other people across the globe!
$6,480,000,000,000 – $960,043,590,000 (tuition, room and board) = $5,519,956,410,000
$5,519,956,410,000 – $1,293,864,000,000 (UBI for black Americans ONLY) = $4.226,092,214,000
324,819,452 X 31,200 = $10,134,366,902,400
$5,519,956,410,000 – 10,134,366,902,400 =
-$4,614,410,492,400 (NEGATIVE 4.6 TRILLION DOLLARS)
A LESSON FROM CHRIST:
With the UBI not having a work requirement, do we want to establish a precedent where people receive money for doing nothing?
John in Chapter 6 records the miracle of Jesus “Feeding of the Five Thousand.” What many don’t recall are the events that took place afterward…
Instantly, thousands of people followed Jesus, because they were seeking free food. Jesus recognized this and said to the people, “…you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate the loaves and were filled.” He went on to emphasize the importance of seeking spiritual food.
But…but… the people continued, “Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ”
Now, instead of proving more free food for the thousands of people, Jesus taught them that he is “the bread of life.” This did not please his followers. They left Jesus and sought him no longer.
“From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with him no more.”
JESUS understands what socialists do not. Dependency deludes people about where their sustenance really comes from (it come from God). It also dehumanizes and demotivates us. *It was in this moment with the masses that Christ actually performed another miracle for the people, one of true compassion: He sent them away.
The remainder of the Movement for Black Lives’ demands listed below follow the same unrealistic, money-driven pattern that has historically led to the financial collapse of countries around the globe. In addition, several of the demands actually increase the risk of violence in the community.
Do we want our society’s role models to be violent murderers?
Do we want unqualified people making major decisions effecting our lives?
DID YOU KNOW?
Unlike the fallacious claims of “embedded racism” against America, Marxism is ripe and heavy with racism that frequently and historically manifests itself in the form of anti-Semitism.
“Long before we had the word Holocaust, we had the Russian word pogrom, meaning massacre. Russia’s first pogrom against the Jews took place in 1881 in Yelisavetgrad” (Pacepa & Rychlak, 2016). At that time, “the local administration called for the people’s wrath to be vented on the Jews, and the impoverished peasants obliged. A wave of killings, rapes, and the pillaging of Jews spread quickly to hundreds of other towns. It soon reached Warsaw and from there, on to the rest of the Russian Empire” (Pacepa & Rychlak, 2016).
Count Nikolay Ignatyev, the Russian minister of the interior, blamed the Jews themselves for the massacre, saying “The passion for acquisition and money-grabbing is inherent in the Jew from the day of his birth; it is characteristic of the Semitic race, manifest from almost the first page of the Bible.” Doesn’t that sound familiar? (Hitler)
“The anti-Semitic ideas were soon embodied in a document titled “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” which was supposedly the recorded meeting minutes of the first Zionist Congress showing the Jews’ plot to take over the world. Instead, a Russian dezinformatsiya (disinformation) member of the Okhrana (secret police) had simply plagiarized a French document call the “Joly book,” substituting the words “the world” for “France” and “the Jews” for “Napolean III.” The Times of London even published a scathing article exposing the fraud in a 1921 expose.
As evidenced a by the above demands, the new communists are exactly like the old: they view the world through the lens of their own preoccupation with money and material things. There is no emphasis on what is best for one’s soul. There is no consideration for one’s emotional and spiritual needs. This is why communism/socialism is oft referred to as the gospel of envy, selfishness, and lies. The biggest trick of deception that Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives has played on us was to make us think that they actually cared about black lives. As all of the evidence shows, the single goal has always been to further their socialist cause. It’s a punch in the gut for many of us.
For our friends who have already devoted themselves to this false god, there is little chance you or I can change their minds. We can, however, pray for them by ask God to change their hearts and minds.
“The religion of socialism is a faith utterly impervious to facts and logic. Socialist failure is irrelevant, because only intentions count when you’re on the side of the angels. No amount of evidence can pierce the force fields that surround the socialist mind. These people insist they are enlightened, but they are invincibly ignorant.”
~ Matthew Vadum, 2015
It has been my intention to bring awareness to God’s children and to address the reality of these groups, as disheartening as it may be. Wisdom is a gift. It is a chance to free yourself from Satan’s deceptive grasp. I hope that you – even as you may be shocked and disappointed – will find this information liberating.

Artistic Process: After preparing my canvas (as described in the 1st two posts in this series) I slightly watered down a light gray paint. Using a medium paintbrush, I slung the paint at the second, splash-board canvas and allowed the paint to splash back into my painting. All in all, it did not work as I had intended… Hmmm. I ended up simply slinging the paint directly onto my picture. Afterwards, I pulled up the tape dividing my canvas. As you can see, there is a clear line where the gray paint stopped. This part was successful. Next, I’ll add color in a similar way to the opposite side of my canvas.
You and I can say that black lives matter. However, we must be careful not to endorse organizations behind such movements without actually understanding those organizations’ true goals and intentions. We must be sure our values are represented, not undermined.
In my last two posts I have discussed the death of a friend’s grandson which was caused by police officers, the #BLM’s true intentions for the ultimate fate of families which is against God’s plan, the BLM’s exploitation of the deaths of black men to further communism while giving little to no actual consideration to black men or to police brutality on their official website, and the communist allegiances of the BLM leaders, as well as the communist groups funding the BLM movement. *In this post I will examine the reasons many of my black brothers and sisters in Christ fall prey to such groups and to others whose true motives are the implementation of a Marxist utopia… an anti-Christian, global state.
Marx and Engels wrote extensively about their disdain for capitalism and about their ideal communist state. However, through all of their condemnation and theorizing, Marx and Engels really didn’t give very much thought or consideration to how a communist economy/culture would actually work and economically last. For these answers all you and I have to do is open a history book.
Communism/Socialism, when put into practice, has a long, gruesome, and repetitive history complete with millions upon millions of human casualties in the 20th century alone:
With such an extensive and horrific history, why then do so many people find communism appealing? More to the point, why are groups like Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives working to transform the US into a communist state?
“A worldview recently the source of immense suffering and misery, and responsible for more deaths than fascism and Nazism, is mounting a comeback; a new form of left-wing totalitarianism that enjoys intellectual celebrity but aspires to political power.”
~ Alan Johnson, World Affairs journal
People embrace Communism for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that socialism (communism/Marxism) sounds wonderful! It really does! It is an ideology of a perfect world; a cause that sounds worthy of one’s devotion and energy. Because it sounds wonderful, many people fall into its trappings – promises for a life better than their own present circumstances. These people can be categorized as follows:
To understand Marxism’s human appeal, we must first know what Marx’s ideological economic plan is. Communism (command economy) is, theoretically, a commune-style, community owned operation without capital (forms of money). Humans are treated equally, with a requirement of all to work. All resources and products are then distributed equally to all citizens, ensuring a class-free standard of living. All-in-all, it sounds wonderful: no class struggle, no inequality, the government supplying citizens with healthcare, education, living expenses, childcare, etc., with no unnecessary competition or antagonisms, etc. However, this theory is just a fantasy, because we’ve just left out one whole half of the complete equation. The majority of “indoctrinates” are either not privy to the specifics, or, they simply ignore the specifics of Marx’s economic plan since reality is far less desirable than fantasy. In reality, we must consider both the positives and negatives. We can’t simply live our lives ignoring half of the plan – half of reality.
So, let’s take a more complete look at communism in actual practice: (*Note, the below is a brief representation. A more complete look will follow in my 4th and last post.)
“Watch out for false teachers. They come to you dressed as if they were sheep. On the inside they are hungry wolves.”
~ Jesus, the Book of Matthew, 7:15
My black brothers and sisters in Christ are especially susceptible. Unbeknownst to most, there has been a powerful and influential wolf living within the sheep…
(First, a look back…) Many Jews anticipated the coming of the Messiah. Their anticipatory idealization of Christ rested on and reflected the Jew’s own history and experiences in being oft oppressed peoples. By the time of the birth of the “King of the Jews,” God’s people expected Jesus to come storming into Jerusalem, conquer the Romans with a righteous sword, and ultimately bring the Jewish people back into political control of their land, establishing infinite peace. Because many religious leaders of the time had bolstered Christ’s conqueror image from prophecy, failing to teach the prophecies that depicted Christ as also being a sufferer, many Jews were disappointed and did not believe in Christ, the Messiah. Instead, they rejected him.
Feeling angry and frustrated with both his current circumstances as a black man in the mid-20th century and also with Christ for, as he believed it, not doing enough for black Americans, James Cone founded a new “Christianity” known as Black Liberation Theology. Just like many of the Jews who lived during Jesus’s physical years spent on Earth, James Cone rejected Jesus for not embodying the “idea” that Cone alone had envisioned and had wanted Christ to be. In effort to cope with this contradiction, Cone created Black Liberation Theology which narrowly interprets the New Testament to focus singularly on alleviating black oppression, with the goal of a black revolution to overthrow and destroy “the white devil in us.” Cone went even further, actually re-creating God and Christ, manifesting the idea that any god who is not aligned with Cone’s new philosophy/theology must be “killed.” Writing book after book after book, James Cone’s ideas successfully infiltrated the masses. Little by little, James H. Cone’s new religion blossomed and was ultimately adopted by a minority, but still growing number of black, Christian churches. The resulting false “religion” created by James Cone has become a thorn in the sides of many black pastors as they seek to preach the truth.
“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against White people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.”
~ James Cone
“If you love those who love you, what pay can you expect from that? Do not even the tax collectors do that? If you say hello only to the people you like, are you doing any more than the others? The people who do not know God do that much. You must be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
~ Jesus, the Book of Matthew, 5:46-48
Black Liberation Theology “is the adoption of victimhood as the core of one’s identity” which “distorts the reality of true progress” (Bradley, 2008). “The remnants of discrimination hold an obsessive, indignant fascination that allows only passing acknowledgement of any signs of progress” (McWhorter, 2000). John McWhorter (a black academic, professor, commentator, author and critic) has written about the dangers of embracing this type of victimhood. In his book, Losing the Race, he articulates three major downsides of victimology. First, it condones weakness in failure. Second, it hampers progress from the outset, because victimology only focuses on obstacles. Third, it actually keeps racism alive, because it repeatedly paints whites as racists without providing any evidence to support such claims. “Racism charges create a context for backlash and resentment fueling new attitudes among whites not previously held or articulated, and creates ‘separatism’ – a suspension of moral judgment in the name of racial solidarity” (Bradley, 2008).
“The task of Black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community… Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. …Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.”
“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
~ 1 Samuel, 16:7
James H. Cone, in For My People, declares that “the Christian faith does not possess in its nature the means for analyzing the structure of capitalism. Marxism as a tool of social analysis can disclose the gap…” Cone sees Karl Marx’s thought as useful, because it provides black liberation theologians with a method of critiquing racism in terms of victimhood, power, and revolution. Thus, it is no coincidence that one may often hear sermons from the pulpit which emphasize “wealth redistribution” (a.k.a. “mal-distribution,” “economic parity,” “economic justice/equality”) and which condemn capitalism – foundations of Karl Marx’s Communism. In his essay, “Black Theology and Marxist Thought,” Cornel West (another black liberation theologian) offered a call for integration of Marxism and Black Liberation Theology. West calls for “a serious dialogue between Black theologians and Marxist thinkers” for the purposes of “mutually arrived-at political action.” The result of the unholy marriage between Black Liberation Theology and Marxism is millions of Americans embracing victimhood as a key part of their identity, focusing perpetually on obstacles rather than on progress and on forgiveness, and experiencing large-scale brainwashing/indoctrination into communism. It is heresy!
And, let me not go any further without stating that Black Liberation Theology is, unequivocally, racist. It teaches hate, not love. It teaches vengeance, not forgiveness. It wounds its followers, not heal them.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’ will go into the holy nation of heaven. The one who does the things My Father in heaven wants him to do will go into the holy nation of heaven. Many people will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not preach in Your Name? Did we not put out many demons in Your Name? Did we not do many powerful works in Your Name?’ Then I will say to them in plain words, ‘I never knew you. Go away from Me, you who do wrong!’”
~ Jesus, the Book of Matthew, 7:21-23
“These people show respect to Me with their mouth, but their heart is far from Me. Their worship of Me is worth nothing. They teach what men have made up.”
~ Isaiah 29:13, as recounted by Jesus in Matthew 15:8-9
It is very difficult for people to fight off spiritual, outside attacks. It is even harder for people to withstand spiritual attacks with within their own community, their own trusted, inner circle. Thus, many have fallen prey to the false teaching of James H. Cone, Cornel West, and other Black Liberation theologians. The hate and the victimhood are absorbed into one’s own heart… almost guaranteeing a dreadful future fate for one’s own soul.
One might say, “They drank the cool-aide.”
It is the eternal resting place of one’s soul that has led me to bring this issue into light. While it may not be a popular stance, it is the right stance. I hold the black community so truly dear to my heart that I would rather risk being the recipient of criticism, hate mail, etc., than to sit idly and silently by and allow my brothers and sisters in Christ be taken advantage of.
Leaders of BLM and the Movement for Black Lives have been influenced (indoctrinated) into the religion-like cult of the new communism, and thus all their daily works must further that singular goal. It’s not that these people was bad things… They genuinely believe in the cause. However, it is yet another example of the blind leading the blind.
Remember, we (Christians) are not of this world. We are of the heavens: We are God’s chosen ones. Do not be fooled by the wolf in sheep’s clothing, but instead seek the light of truth, even when it is risky to do so…
“Every plant that My father in heaven did not plant will be pulled up by the roots. Let them alone. They are blind. If one bling man leads another blind man, they will both fall into a hole.”
~ Jesus, the Book of Matthew, 15:13-14
As mentioned in my last post, I wanted to create an art piece full of movement, as inspired by my dream. After taping off part of my canvas as described in my last post, I pondered how I could actually create that movement. As I am always experimenting, I devised a plan. Using a second canvas, still wrapped in protective plastic, and a kitchen chair, I tried to create something of a backboard/bounce board. My goal for this design was to sling paint at the second, plastic-wrapped canvas in hopes of causing a backsplash to splatter out and onto my painted canvas below.
For those of us who truly believe that black lives do matter, the hidden goals and alliances of Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives are a devastating blow to our hopes and our values.
This is the 2nd installment of an in-depth series investigation into the roots and intentions of the “Black Lives Matter” group and the “Movement for Black Lives.” *If you have not read part one, please do so. Part one is important for understanding both my own motives for investigating these organizations, as well as for gaining full realization of the two groups discussed herein and their founding philosophy, along with fully understanding this international ideology. (You can read part 3 here.) (You can read part 4 here.)
In my last post I focused our attention to the issue of the family (#2), after I listed several declarations regarding Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives; all of which are centered in Communism (Marxism/Socialism). Those declarations are listed below.
My research had presented clear evidence about the #Black Lives Matter org.:
- While BLM has exploited the deaths of black men as martyrs for their cause, the group’s goals and principles listed on the website do not include any mention of black men other than those transgendered (men living as women)…
- The official BLM organization clearly seeks to erode the God-given and God-designed family as evidenced by multiple BLM guiding principles (to be addressed below).
- The Black Lives Matter organization is actually just a Marxism (communism) front organization, using heated and misleading language along with wildly erroneous claims to enrage the entire black race so that blacks can be further exploited for political gains.
After visiting the website for “The Movement for Black Lives,” I have concluded that it too is a Marxist front organization.
Note: There have been various civil rights/racial equality movements across the years; not all adhere to the same philosophy or share the same goals. MANY of these movements have been honorable and productive. Others should not garner that same respect. Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives are not only connected with one another, but they also promote the same philosophy: “Radical Black Liberation Movement” (RBLM) or Black Liberation movement (BLM) for short. As such, from this point on I will simply refer to the Black Lives Matter/Movement for Black Lives organizations by their shared philosophical identify: RBLM.
COMMANDMENT 1: THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME
COMMANDMENT 2: THOU SHALT NOT CREATE AND WORSHIP ANY IDOL
Almighty God always punishes those who serve communism (socialism), as this philosophy shatters the first two of the Ten Commandments. God is replaced by the state and by humanism. This ideology becomes its own theology, religion to those who then worship and glorify this man—made false god.
In 1969, Eric Mann – a radical communist leader/member of the Weather Underground (a splinter group from the radical, Marxist group Students for a Democratic Society) – and 20-30 of his comrades led an attack on Harvard University, accosting a small group of students, employees, and faculty. The invaders defaced and vandalized property and physically assaulted multiple people, while shouting “…we are liberating this building!” Erica Mann was soon arrested and charged with five counts of assault and battery along with several other charges for property damage and for disturbing a public assembly.
Following the blueprint laid out by several Marxist intellectuals before him, Mann believed that inner city blacks were key to inciting a revolution and ultimately overthrowing the government. Mann has one problem: he is white. Mann knew he and other communists must target the black community to effectively bring forth a black leader to set off the Marxist revolutionary dream.
“It would take almost forty years for Mann to see his vision spring to life and catch fire. That’s when he would meet an angry black, lesbian teenager named Patrisse Cullors who goes on to co-found the Black Lives Matter movement” (Stranahan, 2016). In Cullors, Mann found a willing, enthusiastic protégé he then shaped in his own ideological image. This is not Patrisse Cullors’ only communist/socialist tie, and the other Black Lives Matter/Movement for Black Lives leaders have Marxist loyalties as well.
A tangled web forms the funding apparatus of the RBLM. Before we can follow the money trail and social alliances therein, we must first understand the carefully orchestrated structure of this brilliant funding system. The funding structure blueprint calls for the creation of a formidable mass of humanity organizations in alliance with one another to create the impression that a movement has a far larger following than it actually does, that the movement is far more mainstream and popular with the masses than it actually is. Often, foreign governments, such as the Russians, are the creators and puppeteers of a large number of these groups/movements. Some organizations are large, but many of the organizations are, in reality, only a website or a Facebook page. Black Lives matter, as clearly acknowledged on its official website, is one example of an organization that is not a true philanthropic/humanitarian organization: instead, Black Lives Matter exists as a website alone (or “online forum” as its founders call it).
COMMANDMENT 9: THOUGH SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS
(lie, deceive, mislead, conceal)
By covertly creating, funding, and then concealing the entities and funding behind FRSO groups, as well as other communist-aligned front organizations, the Ninth Commandment has been obliterated. Black Lives Matter and the Movement for Black Lives lies to all Americans and sells the black community as slaves to the Marxist cause: global communism.
On the surface, each of these organizations advocates different causes. However, the organizations are, in reality, all covertly working together for one main goal that surpasses all others: to end capitalism by overthrowing capitalist societies in order to rebuild an international communist state. In doing so, this mass of allied organizations acts as well-oiled dezinformatsiya (disinformation) machine. Unlike true humanitarian/philanthropic organizations – such as Heifer International, World Vision, or even the Humane Society of the United States whose funding is put into actions which yield real-life results, truly improving the lives of those these organizations seek to help – the organizations within the radical funding nexus are most often little more than special interest lobbying entities (community organizers).
DID YOU KNOW?
There were more people in Socialist Russia (USSR) employed by the disinformation machine during the Cold War than were employed in the Russian defense industry and the Russian army combined! The Soviets (the KGB) created numerous communist front groups, officially located outside of Russia around the world and all pretending to be independent entities, to purposefully deceive the West (especially America) as well as its own Russian citizens. A few of these communist disinformation groups were: “the World Peace Council (with branches in 112 countries), the World Federation of Trade Unions (with branches in 90 countries), the Women’s International Democratic Federation (with branches in 129 countries), the International Union of Students (with branches in 152 countries), and the World Federation of Democratic Youth (with branches in 210 countries)” (Pacepa & Richlak, 2016). Many of these front groups still exist today.
The co-founders of Black Lives Matter – Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi – all work for front groups for the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. FRSO is compiled of and covered by dozens of groups, and Black Lives Matter is one of the FRSO’s many projects. All projects and groups, as Nelini Stamps proclaimed, “…are actually trying to change the capitalist system we have today..” Stamps works for the FRSO front organization ACORN (which has now been rebranded under a plethora of different names).
It’s not possible for a world to emerge where black lives matter if it’s under capitalism. And it’s not possible to abolish capitalism without a struggle against national oppression and gender oppression.”
~ Alicia Garza
“We’ve made it very clear that this is not just a conversation around cis, hetero, black men…”
~ Patrisse Cullors
“…I would argue that the international community faces 3 core challenges to advancing human rights. Those are: global capitalism, white supremacy, and the suppression of democracy.”
~ Opal Tometi
The founders, the funders, and the cohorts in the Black Lives Matter movement and in the Movement for Black Lives hide their true intentions from us, deceive us. They pretend to speak for black people, yet not only are their goals a direct contradiction to true equality and liberation, but there are also millions of black Americans (and across the globe) who do not share this heretical ideology. The RBLMs have sold off black lives as slaves to be used as pawns by their Marxist god and masters.

“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never again say that you did not know.” –
A few years ago, a family friend lost her grandson who I’ll refer to as “Eddie.” He and a few friends had been pulled over and subsequently arrested by police. I do not have knowledge of the charge/crime for which they were arrested. In the process of being cuffed, an officer caused Eddie to suffer severe, internal head trauma. To spite Eddie’s friends voicing concern, Eddie was never given a medical evaluation or treatment while in police custody. Hours later – while still in police custody – Eddie died from his head trauma. Regardless of Eddie’s crime or behavior, he should have received medical attention. His death was a direct result of the actions of police officers who refused to allow medical care for Eddie.
A few months ago, I went to the Black Lives Matter official website to learn more about “the movement.” Little did I know that this one simple act would set off a chain reaction of investigations on my part that would ultimately dominate the next few months of my life.
A few days ago, I set out to add movement to my developing painting. I imagined a spattering of paint, two energies colliding against each other. To begin the process of adding movement to my painting I taped off half of my piece. I needed to ensure that paint would not be transferred to the entire canvas, but would instead remain only on a single side.
My mind wandered away from preparing to add movement to my artwork and I began to ponder “The Movement” instead.
God has blessed me with the spiritual gift of wisdom (discernment). I am able to see the difference between good and evil in our everyday lives more clearly than most. I can sense evil when it is among us. *What follows is the result of an in-depth examination and investigation into the “Black Lives Matter” and the “Movement For Black Lives” organizations.
I now ask that you take a walk with me into the world of activism and social theory, and allow the Holy Spirit’s wisdom to enter into your heart and your mind. As I discussed in my last post, Jesus told us exactly which door to walk through. Let us now go through the “narrow door” together…
“Go through the narrow door. The door is wide and the road is easy that leads to hell. Many people are going through that door. But the door is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life that lasts forever. Few people are finding it.”
– Matthew 7:13-14
…And off we go!
As noted above, I went to the Black Lives Matter organization’s official website to learn more about the movement. I was shocked by what I read, to say the very least. Because of what I learned I have decided to take a clear stance against the Black Live Matter organization. This group’s evident anti-Christian, anti-freedom, anti-liberty, and pro-enslavement ideology – enslavement of the masses by the state – is a clear and present danger – it is an evil amongst us.
I can’t put into words how disappointed I was to discover this!
“Listen to my strong words! See, I will pour out my spirit on you. It will make my words known to you.”
– Proverbs 1:23
“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding. For it is better than getting silver and fine gold. She is worth more than precious stones. Nothing you can wish for compares with her. Long life is in her right hand. Riches and honor are in her left hand. Her ways are pleasing and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life for those who take hold of her. Happy are all who hold her near.”
– Proverbs 3:13-18
Almighty God is against Marxism. Thus, Marxism is a clear and present evil that continues to spread like a cancer among us. It is of utmost importance to address this issue. The realizations you will read below will change your life! After you finish, you may experience the mourning process just as I did (denial, anger, acceptance). That’s okay! Let yourself grieve.

DID YOU KNOW?
Leonard Sabovich was the leading Soviet urban planner under both Stalin and Lenin. Because children are considered property of the state, Sabovich advocated forcible removal of children from their parents, after which they would be place into his carefully designed “Children’s Towns” as part of his grand scheme for the ideal “socialist city.”
Each of the above points (declarations) regarding the BLM organization are actually interconnected and tied to a global ideology of central planning and the welfare state that is known as communism. God does not support it.
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published “The Communist Manifesto” in 1848. Since then, their unedifying screed has been read by more and more people, and their confusing, ideological blarney against human nature has spread like a virus. There is never a shortage of new contemporaries and intelligence-lacking intellectuals to carry on Marx’s torch.
Communism is both an economic structure and a cultural structure. It goes by different names…
*When “communism” (also known as Marxism) earned a bad name in the east, supporters of the communist ideal in Europe began calling it “socialism.” When Cuba gave “socialism” a bad name, supporters of the communist ideal in America began calling it “progressivism.” Now, we have the new buzz term “Democratic Socialism,” which a large portion of history-ignorant Americans are flocking to. *Regardless of the terminology or how it is deceptively dressed, it is all communism. As Vladimir Lenin, one of communism’s founders, once aptly stated, “The goal of socialism is communism.”

Did you know that in 1945, only two months after the end to WWII, young, British voters lacking in historical knowledge and inspired by Marx, weary from the war, essentially kicked Winston Churchill out of office? In his place they elected Clement Atlee, an undercover Marxist with Britain’s Labour Party. Atlee proceeded to nationalize the healthcare system, the financial system, the coal and automotive industries, communication facilities, electricity production, aviation, and the steel industry. The British economy was badly damaged and the government had to resort to rationing food for its poorest citizens. The single thing that kept Atlee’s government from turning into totalitarianism was Atlee’s personal moral beliefs. The British voters brought Winston Churchill back to power in 1950. However, it required a full eighteen years of conservative governments to repair the damage caused by the six years of Clement Atlee’s government. Today, out of willful ignorance and naive ideological motives, many contemporaries laud Atlee’s welfare state and Atlee himself as an unsung hero of Britain.
“The mouth of the one who is right with God is a well of life, but the mouth of the sinful hides trouble.”
– Proverbs 10:11
Overthrowing capitalism is the central goal of Marxists so that they can usher in a welfare state across the globe, free from countries and void of borders. French Marxist Stephane Hessel, dreaming of a universal Marxist paradise, preached redistribution of the whole world’s wealth. An unprecedented, international moment of silence was observed by the United Nations in 2013, following Hessel’s death. Turning a country (and the world) away from capitalism and into an autocracy (dictatorship), requires an act of force. In fact, Marx himself prefaced his 10 point plan, stating “Of course, in the beginning, this can not be effected except by despotic inroads” (tyrannical inroads).
Since such tyrannical change is likely to be met with great resistance, many Marxists advocate a stealth, gradual transition from capitalism to “socialism” by way of legislative acts and government-imposed regulations. In order for this to take place, a full attack on existing culture and beliefs must be initiated through an organized and multifaceted “disinformation” campaign. *The socialist Soviets mastered disinformation, which is a deliberate marketing of false information (dezinformatsyia) to gain control and manipulate minds. This means that code words must be used to fool the masses into jumping aboard the Marxist agenda train and tricked into voluntarily surrendering their personal rights and control over their personal matters to the government. Another term for this is “Doublespeak.” Make no mistake: this is ALL sanctioned deceit – lies!

In 1963, after extensive communist infiltration into the US government, congress entered into the official record the 45 communist goals for taking over the United States of America. The below statement is one of these 45 goals:
DISCREDIT THE FAMILY AS AN INSTITUTION. ENCOURAGE PROMISCUITY AND EASY DIVORCE.
Saul Alinsky, an American community organizer, created some 24 rules for community organizing for change (found in his book, Rules For Radicals). The first 13 are power tactics. The 11 remaining rules are guidelines concerned with the means to an end. Several of Alinky’s rules are pertinent to the topic of misinformation (lies):
*Please, may we never forget that Saul Alinsky dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to LUCIFER (Satan)! This man was literally a conduit of evil.
“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: Its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”
– Joseph Stalin
*For the purposes of length, I only listed the terms relevant for this particular post.
“The communist revolution is the most radical rupture with traditional relations; no wonder that its development involves the most radical rupture with traditional ideas.”
– Marx and Engels
By the mid 1800’s, it was accepted knowledge that socialists (A.K.A. communists) rejected the institution of the family, favoring “free-love” instead. Marx and Engels, as well as other socialists and opponents of socialism all fully understood that socialism was a threat to the family. Unfortunately, many misconstrue Marx’s and Engel’s radical stance advocating for the abolition of the family. It was not reform they sought, but complete annihilation of the family unit as humanity has known it to be. Marx’s vision of human relationships in future communist society had no resemblance whatsoever to family as it has historically existed.
“Only by making the term family almost infinitely elastic can they [Marx & Engels] be said to have embraced merely a reformation of the family.”
– History of European Ideas, Vol 18, No 5, p. 658
Marx and Engels co-authored The Communist Manifesto, among other works, in which their material/economic view of history is clearly visible. Marx believed that the bourgeois family and their private property were part of the superstructure of capitalism, which he loathed. He used the bourgeois family as a scapegoat, blaming the family for prostitution, the exploitation of children working in factories, and the sexual exploitation of women and girls in factories during that time period (Europe’s industrialization). In the eyes of Marx and Engels, it was within the family unit that private property and division of labor were first created, with the first type of division of labor being the sex act. Within the family, labor was divvied out based on physiological factors such as age and sex, and thus women and children were forced to become the slaves of men. The families’ private property was thus associated with the division of labor which, according to Marx and Engels, was then associated with alienation and exploitation. *Thus, Marx theorized the best way to abolish all private property was to abolish the family altogether, including all inheritance. [Interestingly, Marx and Engels did not work, but instead lived off of Engels’ inheritance.]
Influenced by Feuerbach (German philosopher and anthropologist), Marx determined that humans created God and all human institutions. Since humans came first in the order of things, then God and all human institutions (such as the family) are no longer sacrosanct (no longer regarded as sacred and inviolable).
“Therefore after, for example, the earthly family is discovered as the secret of the holy family, the former must itself be theoretically and practically destroyed.”
– Marx, “Thesis on Feuerbach”
Overtime Marx and Engels vacillated between theories regarding the history of the family. Ultimately they adopted a view that the absence of the family was the original and natural state of humanity – a society where every man had sexual access to every woman and even incest was acceptable. In Marx’s materialist view of history, laws prohibiting polygamy were only due to economic reasons, with money and boredom being the true bonds of the Bourgeois marriage. Consequently, Marx believed that economic factors would ultimately fuel the transformation to a communist society.
“Religion, family, state, law, morality, science, art, etc. are only particular modes of production and come under its general law. The positive supersession (Aufhebung) of private property as appropriation of human life, is therefore the positive supersession (Aufhebung) of all alienation, and therefore the return of people out of religion, family, state, etc. into his human, i.e. social existence.”
Marx and Engels addressed the status of children, post-family, in The Communist Manifesto. First, home education must be banned and ultimately replaced with Erziehung, which Adolph Hitler put into effect in the 1930’s, and which is largely still in effect today. That’s right – Hitler was a socialist (A.K.A. communist)! Erziehung is not only social and formal education, but it also encompasses all training of children, even the training typically associated with the role of the parents. Marx and Engels were unconcerned about the inevitable protests by parents, poking fun at the “Bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent and child.” Their vision for children was to remove them from their parents and place them into communes, for their own good of course, after which their parents were free to engage in sexual relations without any concern for the children. Engels elaborated upon this vision for children further in the draft of The Communist Manifesto: “The raising (Erziehung) of children together in national institutions and at national expense, from that moment on, in which they can dispense with the first motherly care.” There you have it, folks! Marx and Engel’s envisioned ripping children away from their mothers essentially as soon as the children were old enough to feed themselves and wipe their own butts. The private, autonomous family is prohibited to exist in the communist society as the state takes firm control over its youth. No provision would be made to account for a mother’s (or father’s) natural bond to her children.
“The youth of today is ever the people of tomorrow. For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled. This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future, upon its youth. And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”
– Adolph Hitler, 1937
In addition to private childcare/child-rearing being replaced by communal care, private housework, cooking, etc. should be replaced by a government-run industry. Only then will the woman finally be set free from the economic bondage of her family. Accompanying this new found liberation, the communist society removes the shackles of marriage and monogamy, which are seen by Marx and Engels as impediments to true human happiness. The new sexual norm will be that of an uninhibited expression of mutual love. Because children are raised communally, Engels notes that women will no longer have to fear unwanted pregnancies.
“This [the communal care of children] removes the anxiety about the ‘consequences,’ which today forms the most essential social – moral as well as economic – factor that hinders a girl from giving herself completely to the man she loves. Will that not be cause enough for the gradual advent of more free and easy sexual relations and with it also a more tolerant public opinion concerning virginal honor and a woman’s shame?”
So… Do you get the picture? I could go on and on…
*For the purposes of length, I will not present the direct, communist connections to the Black Lives Matter organization. That topic will be discussed in my next post.
Now let’s look at some of the content available on the Black Lives Matter website, keeping in mind the mind-numbing information we have gathered from the preceding info. *The below images are screen shots of from the BLM website’s “Our Principles” section.
Look for the socialist code words I listed and defined above. (private, dismantle/disrupt/, villages, our children, nuclear family, etc.) Do you notice the similarities between the BLM language and the concepts espoused by Marx and Engels? …You should!
Did you notice that the icon for “Black Families” is absent the father? The women who founded the #BLM group & created its website hold an evident, deep hatred toward men (misandry). In fact, their hatred of men is a hatred and a rejection of the creation of our Almighty God above. Consider this: God is the ultimate patriarch! To go to war with patriarchy is literally to go to war with GOD Himself! Do you want to go to war with God? SPOILER ALERT: GOD WILL WIN.
“Feminists have risen to breach the historic maintenance of a distinction between the ‘public’ and the ‘private,’ writing volumes to show the interdependence and relationship between these ‘spheres,’ demonstrating, for example, the treacherousness of the protection of family privacy…”
– Martha Albertson Fineman
#BLM seeks not to uplift the black community, nor does it even seek to prevent another black man’s death at the hands of police (like that of my friend’s grandson, Eddie). Black Lives Matter and its founders are just one more black power structure seeking to exploit blacks to further expand their own personal wealth and power, and to push their own communist agenda which they have cleverly hidden behind socialist code words.
Do black lives really matter? To Lisa Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors, black lives only matter in the sense that they are commodities to be pimped out for political “progress.” Ask yourself this question, “If these women truly wanted to improve black lives, why would they seek to further eradicate fathers from black families?” In 1960, 67% of black children were raised in homes with married fathers and mothers. Also in 1960, just 20% of black children lived in single mother homes. Today only 34% of black children are raised in homes with married fathers and mothers. Even worse, today a full 50% of all black children are living in single mother homes. Ask yourself this question, “Has the ‘dismantling of the nuclear family’ in the black community had a positive effect or a negative effect on black lives?” There is a plethora of research studies, data and statistics that could fill the belly of Jonah’s whale which clearly show the negative impact of fatherlessness on nearly every single aspect of a child’s life, as well as the immense positive benefits for children with involved fathers, especially fathers married to the mothers. To spite this evidence, the three leaders of the #BLM remain as dedicated to abolishing the family as Marx was. That… it isn’t progress. That is misery! (*It is also important to note that the nuclear family is not a “Western” creation. It was created by God above. An attack on the family is an attack on the Almighty Himself!)
Lastly, take a moment to consider the ways in which the #BLM principles contradict and seek to undermine the truth of the Gospel.
“The snake said to the woman, ‘No, you for sure will not die! For God knows that when you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and bad.’
– Genesis 3:4-5
We can rationalize our way into believing any truck load of mumbo-jumbo. But lying to ourselves only comes from Satan. Just think of how clever he was in the garden with Eve. Satan easily led Eve along, helping her rationalize her way into eating the forbidden fruit. Please, don’t be like Eve. Your soul’s eternal destination is far too precious to become a sacrificial lamb to an unrighteous cause! Keep to the path that is hard which leads to salvation!
“Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice? She takes her stand on the top of the hill beside the way, where the paths meet.”
– Proverbs 8:1-2
