Consider for a moment the Dobbs decision and the furor surrounding the “leak” and subsequent release of Samuel Alito’s majority opinion. Consider the abortion advocates anger over the end of the sole authority for their “abortion rights” — the state as God walking on earth.
Think about it.
If abortion is a “right” guaranteed by Roe as “the law of the land” then what happens now that the decision is overturned?
By what authority is that right claimed?
If it is by authority of the Court, then what happens when the majority rules no such Constitutional right exists?
Since late February, I’ve published a series of articles critiquing the media lies about the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Certainly, the current military and economic war over Ukraine is a reflection of a deeper spiritual conflict between secularism and a traditional Christian social order. It is important that we not be led astray as to the nature of the war. The western public has been propagandized on a daily basis by both the neo-liberal and neo-conservative “legacy media.” We are told that Ukraine is winning the war, that we must spend billions of dollars fighting a proxy war to weaken Russia economically and militarily. We are constantly told that Putin is intent on restoring the Soviet Union with designs to invade Europe. Therefore, it is imperative that NATO expand its power so that the United States may remain as the world’s dominant economic and military superpower.
An earth shaking shift in the world’s regional powers is coming. How do I know? Because history shows this happens all the time. And coming with it is an incredible opportunity to watch Christ’s kingdom forcefully advance in the nations.
The Russia-Ukraine crisis from the outset was sparked by American and western European meddling in Ukraine’s corrupt government and national corporations. But that is is just the tip of the iceberg. It is just a reflection of a larger global war. It is an economic and political war. It is happening right now and the West has already lost.
The goal of western globalists ever since Kiev’s Orange Revolution of 2008 was as follows.
Goad Russia into a conflict with Ukraine;
Impose economic sanctions;
Ultimately break-up Russia into smaller countries by weakening it economically;
Install western leaning puppet governments;
Break off the control of Moscow over the resource rich Ural and Siberian regions;
Sell of its vast resources to western companies.
But Russia wasn’t having any of that. They began years ago in collaboration with China, India, Iran and other allies for the day when a set piece battle would come. Now it has arrived and soon the western globalists will be consigned to the ash heap of history.
In a previous article, Media Lies on Russia-Ukraine, I gave a list of resources that uncover the legacy media lies. Since that time I have discovered a few more YouTube channels hosted by some full-time independent journalists that seek to critique the legacy media narrative. Please note that I do not endorse the views of every one of these sources.
Ukraine on Fire Trilogy
I highly recommend this Global Tree Pictures documentary series. Each one of the three films is a must see. The first two are by award-winning director Oliver Stone. Although I find Stone to be a controversial conspiracy theorist and don’t agree with him much politically, most of what is presented are well-documented facts. The narration does a good job at connecting the dots that inevitably led to the current crisis. In fact, I would call the series prophetic. Although not without bias, the presenters allow viewers to draw their own conclusions. The production and visual quality of these documentary films are unsurpassed. Each one is watchable and intriguing. The age restriction is due to the images and video made during the violent Euro-Maidan coup.
SJWs — Social Justice Warriors — are essentially cultural Marxists masquerading as advocates for the oppressed. They would use the arm of the state to achieve their goals.
A pastor friend of mine recently harped on how he thinks that people in the Church who preach “dominion” are dangerous. They are the “deep state” in the Church. I had to explain that there are true forms and counterfeits in all expressions of Christianity.
Christian Reconstruction in its true form teaches regeneration of the individual first and then the leavening of society through Christian families, churches, and then the civil sphere fourth. So it is all voluntary each step of the way. Obviously, we believe that man’s laws ought not conflict with God’s laws. We avoid the extreme of anarchy recognizing that someone has got to rule inevitably. And you will either have God’s law or man’s law as our civil code. But that’s not to say that the law can be enforced from the top down to create a Christian society.
So what does this have to do with “Social Justice Warriors”?
Is Russia bluffing? Will Europe get gas after the deadline if they don’t pay? My prediction is that Russia isn’t bluffing. They planned this for a long time as a counter-measure. Next comes crude oil, coal, metals, rare earths, minerals, precious stones, noble gases, lumber, fertilizers, food oil, and grain — all may soon be sold in rubles.
The effect of agreeing on the European side is nil. They would simply exchange euros to rubles and pay that way. Very simple. But the effect on the Russian side is huge since it would bolster the ruble in effect reversing most of the sanctions. The effect of refusing on the European side is huge. Energy prices would almost double since 40 percent of their natural gas comes from Russia. The US can only make up about 10 percent of Europe’s gas loss in the short term and with a much more expensive delivery cost.
Meanwhile, the effect of a European refusal is virtually nil in Russia for the long term since the Asian market demand will make up for the loss of sales. In fact, Russia did its first oil sale to India using a rupees to rubles exchange. Saudi Arabia started accepting Chinese yuan for oil, thus undercutting the petro-dollar. The east has already found a way to circumvent western sanctions even while cutting off the west.
This was obviously a long term plan thought out ahead of time in 2021 or maybe even years before these sanctions.

KIEV, Ukraine (Forerunner) — I have spent about an equal amount of time in both the countries of Russia and Ukraine. This time amounts to several months out of my life. Rather than stay in hotels and eat in restaurants, I spent the majority of my time with my friends and their families in over a dozen cities in each country. I have close friends from both countries who have strong feelings on either side of the current conflict. Since we are constantly barraged with war footage, we are taught to sympathize with our Ukrainian brethren and their heroic president while being conditioned to demonize Russians who support their president. However, the first casualty of war is always truth. How can we forget this so easily? I asked two questions to a friend in Kiev who is well-connected throughout the country due to his business dealings. ~ Jay Rogers
I also highly recommend the above video for a general background in Ukraine’s recent history. It is impossible to correctly understand the current situation without knowing something about Ukraine as a culture and a nation. The video is an excellent and balanced teaching that explains well various factors that led to the 2022 Russia-Ukraine crisis.
The Forerunner:– Most people don’t ever have the experience of living in a city being attacked by the second most powerful army in the world. What are your reflections and observations?
A:– We are okay, so far. There is hell going on near Kiev where the battles are [a few miles to the north and west of the city].
Also the cities of Mariupol and Kharkov are suffering heavily. My colleagues from Kharkov left the city for remote areas. The city is a battle arena at the moment. Mariupol is a half-million population city and the biggest shelter of the Azov Nazi Battalion that holds civilians as hostages.
