When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke at the University of Chicago Law School in May of 2013, she gave a thinly veiled heads-up to her leftist fellow-travelers around the nation that SCOTUS was not going to find a constitutional right to "gay marriage" in the then-pending United States v. Windsor case (which instead simply struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act – DOMA). Her means of telegraphing this message was a surprising critique of Roe v. Wade in which she said (in essence) that Roe was a bad ruling – not because she disagreed with its pro-abortion substance, but because it went too far too fast, creating the pro-life movement. If they had only gone more slowly, and let the frogs acclimate to the rising temperature of the water, they wouldn't have jumped out of the pot on that issue.
Sure enough, Windsor did not become the LGBT Roe v Wade. But, unable to restrain their zeal for the ultimate leftist cause, the elites waited only two years to force their will and claim their prize in Obergefell v. Hodges by the only means available to them: 1) the invalidation of about two dozen popular (and decisive) elections – in the most conservative states – by a tiny handful of dictatorial federal judges, and 2) the delegitimization of the Supreme Court itself by the outright invention of a new constitutional "right" with no basis in law, whose majority vote relied on two justices (Ginsburg and Elena Kagan) who had performed same-sex "weddings" while the case was pending, in an unprecedented and breathtaking violation of fundamental judicial ethics.
But Obergefell, it seems, did much more than create an LGBT Roe v. Wade. It awakened the sleeping giant of the Christian church while concurrently creating an immediate and actual justification for our civil rebellion. Beginning with just a trickle, an increasing number of Bible-believing Christians are now joining the ranks of the so-called "Christian Right," which, prior to Obergefell, had been slowly but steadily waning in power since the heady days of Ronald Reagan and the Christian Coalition in the 1980s.

In the elections of early November, the extent of this seismic shift was seen all across the country as voters in Texas, Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio and Mississippi provided large majorities to conservative candidates and against leftist causes. Houston, Texas, rejected special rights for transgenders by nearly 2 to 1, in a turnout that doubled that of the prior two elections, despite a 3 to 1 spending advantage by the left and threats of the loss of hosting the Superbowl in 2017. In Kentucky, an 80,000-vote majority elected outspoken pro-life and pro-family hero Matt Bevin in a stunning upset, attributed to his promise to defund Planned Parenthood and defend Christians like Kim Davis who defy activist judges on LGBT issues.
Importantly, the rise of the Christian Right parallels and complements that of the Secular Right, which is best recognized in the Trump phenomenon but is represented in a much wider swath of voters than just Trump supporters. The Secular Right is energized far more by the invasion of illegal aliens and the collapse of the economy, the military and our relations with foreign governments than with the collapse of morality and the natural family. But there is significant overlap of these two large and growing movements and tremendous impetus to unify against the common enemy: the Obama administration and ruling leftist elites.
There is no question in my mind that the globalists are making their move while their man is still in the White House, and we're certain to see an increase, not a decrease, in the extent to which the Marxists overplay their hand. They really have no choice since they know that if they do not defeat the republic and establish their empire now, they will likely never again enjoy the current "perfect storm" of culture-wide institutional control, political will and muscle in the executive and judicial branches (and acquiescence in the legislative) and near-dictatorial (but crumbling) global power.
So, rather than play their former game of two steps forward, one step back (the Marxist dialectic) they are now ALL-IN. And knowing that this blatant play for power will inevitably further strengthen and energize their opposition, they have planned and are now implementing a judo move against us. The strategy is to rapidly polarize the society to the point of violence by conservatives, which will serve as a pretext for "defensive" police-state measures to suppress what they have already begun to spin as the rise of neo-Nazism. That's the motivation behind the Black Lives Matter campaign and the outrageous, anger-inducing policies involving illegal aliens and multi-trillion dollar debt financing of ever more bloated entitlement programs and government expansion. The elites are deliberately provoking civil unrest through the suspension of civil liberties and what is left of the rule of law under the Constitution.

An agent provocateur (or "inciting agent") is someone who acts deliberately to entice another to act rashly or illegally so they can be arrested or otherwise punished. That, writ large, is the strategy of the Obama administration and the leftist elites in their continuous and escalating provocation of the right. It is important for the cooler heads in our Christian/Secular conservative coalition to educate our people about this tactic and caution them against rash acts in the coming weeks and months. We should also be on the alert for staged incidents by our opponents that they most likely implement if they can't goad our own people into such acts – and we should make public our accusation that we believe they intend to do so.
Pass it on.
