Introduction to the Series: This is an abridged version of the introduction the book Communiqués From the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy. It seems only fitting to launch this series on Bear Witness Central with Communiqués’ introduction discussing the divine nature of the American founding; a subject always pertinent, but especially now during this period of struggle between “secular Progressivism” and the rest of us. I was inspired to write this book during the Obama administration, motivated both by horror as I learned more about the “Progressives” end-game and strategies to get there, and fear that our divinely-inspired country was being taken from us as we slept. This book is one faithful patriot’s effort to sound the alarm for his fellow citizens, and (hopefully) make a contribution to saving our great nation. I hope that you enjoy it and find it informative. – Thomas Wigand, May 2017

One and God make a majority.

Frederick Douglass

Real Americans know that our country stands at the precipice, at least intuitively – hence the rise of the Tea Party, composed not of “bitter clingers” but instead enlightened protectors – though most do not yet grasp just how anti-American Progressivism actually is, nor how far reaching already have been its successes in surreptitiously “fundamentally transforming” the United States of America into something else. They know that they are acting against the “God and one” majority, which is why that intuitive aspect alone forces Progressivism to occasionally change its label, at least for a time – for as Americans become more familiar with its deleterious impact the more discredited it becomes, forcing it to lay low for a time. Thus “Progressive” was the term on the banner in the early part of the 20th century then, when it became discredited, morphed to “Liberal” … and then after “Liberal” inevitably became discredited, morphed back to “Progressive.” It awaits economic travail or social unrest (and faded memories of its true nature) to march in – e.g., FDR in the 1930’s, LBJ in the 1960’s and Obama in 2008 – but eventually Americans relearn that the Progressive cure is far worse than the disease (something like a rinse and repeat version of the dynamic described in George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm).

More on Progressivism shortly, but let us first revisit the United States of America, its founding and what that imparted to us, and still carries through today. Ages ago Israel became the land of Judaism; it begat Christianity. But Israel was never a Christian land. Christianity spread throughout Europe, but was (in effect) an “import” overlaid on top of pre-existing cultures and religions. The European settlers that later came to inhabit these shores and develop this land brought with them the Judeo-Christian influence and, most importantly and distinctly, that influence informed the developing nation. The Declaration of Independence, the founding document of the United States of America, unambiguously acknowledges that this country is one initially formed under God, constituent with Judeo-Christianity – as the following excerpts (and the italics within them) attest:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation …

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions …

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

This author asserts that the existence of this nation is itself thanks to a constellation of events unique in the experience of mankind. Uniqueness such that surely the hand of God did more than tenderly brush the intellects and consciences of our Founding Fathers, but inspired and steered them. Consider that we are a nation that was founded upon a set of ideals, not upon a happenstance of geography or ethnicity. Ideals ab initio incorporating Judeo-Christian roots, and designed to birth one nation under God; a nation in which every soul would have the fullest opportunity to pursue their individual calling to God (“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”) … not merely the transitory nature of “happiness” available on this earth, but the eternal happiness of salvation.

No people can be bound to acknowledge the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.

George Washington

Consider the possibility that on this relatively virgin continent God gave his followers the opportunity to establish a nation not built upon the rubble of old, but from its commencement one recognizing Him, so his children of the future would have the opportunity to come to know Him, yet be free to embrace him, or not, as the former is the necessary path for eternal life, one each of us must individually undertake from within our own heart.

Rare indeed is the nation founded upon ideas and principles rather than mere circumstances such as where random groups prehistoric human beings happened to cease their nomadic ways, and the natural geographic boundaries that happened to encircle their place of settlement, be they mountains, deserts, plain or bodies of water. To borrow a concept from the business world, we can think as “mission statements” the founding documents of idea-founded nations. There have been some founded upon the Collectivist creed of The Communist Manifesto – the Soviet Union; Peoples Republic of China and Cuba, for example. The consistent (and so characteristic) history of human repression, poverty, mass murder in Collectivist states illustrates the inherent evil of the doctrine from which they were spawned. (It is with good reason that William F. Buckley in launching National Review magazine observed that: “The century’s most blatant force of satanic utopianism is communism.”)

Rarer still, if not unique to the United States of America – at least insofar as it probably being the first (if not only nation ever?) with a “mission statement” that acknowledges God and the unalienable rights He bestows upon each of his children – “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …” – and then sets as its mission the establishment of a nation to secure those God-given rights.

Thus the United States of America is indeed divinely inspired!

Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of people that these liberties are the gift of God?”

Thomas Jefferson

That Progressive entity called the ACLU never rests in its mission to forcibly pry us from that, citing as its justification “the separation of church and state in the Constitution.” That mis-characterization of our Constitution is as egregious as the Progressives’ hijacking of the Constitution’s “Commerce Clause” (discussed later in this collection). The Constitution merely sought to ensure that citizens would be unimpeded in their practice of faith and in pursuing their relationship with God by prohibiting the federal government from establishing its own denomination, or selecting one as the “official denomination” of the United States, or otherwise under color of law suppressing faith. (Indeed the freedom of religion in the United States provides hospitable ground for the introduction the Judeo-Christian faith to those of other faiths, or no faith, so that they may someday, of their own volition and heart, come to God. In this, consider that there may have been a divine method behind our divinely inspired founding. As we’ll see …)
