The Trump Accountability Project. A horror show in the making. This organization comes in light of a Biden victory for the next President of the United States. Frightening when you read the fine print from this site:

Because we all stand united for Biden right? RIGHT?! To be clear, there are no unsubstantiated claims allowed at TIF. Yes, we are a Christian and a Conservative (Primitive Conservative, see details) organization but lying (a sin) and a lack of objectivity (a bad idea) is simply poor research. But this is not unity in any far stretch should the Biden Administration allow this nonsense. Yet it comes as no surprise, Biden tweeted (or whoever Tweets for Biden) a day before the election:

I believe LGBTQ+ rights are human rights — and they are on the ballot tomorrow.

Why mention LGBTQ? Because GLADD has their own list: Trump Accountability Project (TAP). The radical left are doing exactly what a totalitarian regime would do which is make a list and go after the people on that list. And they are also changing definitions to words, ideas, and concepts such as “Preference” and “Racism” to meet ideological Woke standards.

To any progressives who may read or follow Truth In Focus I would implore you to reconsider the ramifications of making lists, word changes, and threats as a means of unity for your beliefs or we all may end up looking more like this:

The McCarrick Report (Official Report). Nothing easy about this report from the Vatican concerning the former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, now 90 years of age, for his years of rape of adults and children alike. Pages 2 and 3 from the report:

This Report does not examine the issue of McCarrick’s culpability under canon law, since that question has already been adjudicated by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. While the Secretariat of State’s examination was not focused on discovering the precise nature of McCarrick’s misconduct, numerous individuals who had direct physical contact with McCarrick were interviewed in connection with the Report. During extended interviews, often emotional, the persons described a range of behavior, including sexual abuse or assault, unwanted sexual activity, intimate physical contact and the sharing of beds without physical touching. The interviews also included detailed accounts related to McCarrick’s abuse of authority and power. The individuals’ full accounts, which proved extraordinarily helpful to the examination, were carefully reviewed, were made available to Pope Francis and are preserved in the Holy See’s archives.

There is a large swath of reporting on this document which will be linked here: 1) Rod Dreher, 2) American Magazine, 3) Wall Street Journal, 4) Vatican News, 5) First Things.

A few key takeaways. First, people (popes, pastors, priests, bishops included) will mislead, lie, and greatly harm others. All are susceptible to sin. It reminds me of the ongoing investigation of the late Ravi Zacharias who suspiciously owned Spas (what kind of Christian Apologist does that?) that he has now been accused by at least three women to have performed sexual acts before them. An official statement was released by RZIM back in October:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Rom. 3:23)

What remains a fundamental rule in life regardless of a political candidate, evangelist, or a relative is to never idolize the individual. Everyone is capable of committing horrific crimes. Dr. Jordan B Cooper, an ordained Lutheran pastor, an adjunct professor of Systematic Theology, and a Ministry Fellow with Christian Union at Cornell University, has a superb Youtube page, Just & Sinner, where Dr. Cooper recently provided his own analysis on the matter of Zacharias worth watching: Thoughts on the Ravi Zacharias Situation.

Back to McCarrick, according to the Catholic New Agency Theodore McCarrick is off hiding in seclusion like the coward he is. Leah Libresco, basically a catholic superwoman who was a former atheist and is a freelance journalist (also author), tweeted the following:

And that is exactly what we are going to do here at Truth In Focus. If you have ever been a victim of abuse or are presently facing abuse please reach out to us. We will fight for you. No matter who you are. This a promise written within the TIF Statement:

To be a Voice for the Voiceless, a Defense for the Defenseless.

TIF November Issue (2020) comes at the wake of a radical leftist soft-totalitarianism that seeks to devour all that is human and humane. Read. Share. Support.

All month long articles, book reviews, and testimonies concerning the radical left are here for readers to peruse. Quoting from my own article, By Virtue of Desecration: Liberation & the Sexual Moral Erosion of America:

Pornographic as Good

Very much a part of adulteration but importantly distinct as pornography is seen as freedom of speech as a right to sex and a right to sex work are seamlessly integrated into modern liberalized societies. Christians and Conservatives are not free from this burden as pornography runs rampant in churches, colleges, and states. Technology has expedited the profane and the obscene as another commodity in the free market. Under no false pretenses is the pornographic a liberator or an adjudicator of justice rather its is a master over its slaves and a harsh judge over impoverished souls. Youth today have succumbed to its anguish. It is time to cancel porn forever.

Or consider reading Kaleb ‘Kal’ Demerew review of Heather McDonald book, The Diversity Delusion titled, Totalitarian ‘Diversocrats’ and American Higher Education: A Review:

Mac Donald argues that totalitarian ‘diversocrats’ threaten the pursuit of humanities, truth, and science in university, promoting niche fields that provide narrow support to the ‘diversity’ project. Examples of this include the replacement, rather than supplementation, of classical curricula in classical rhetoric, oratory grammar, and literature with abstract study areas in fields like gender, race, and sexuality studies. For Mac Donald, this reflects a narcissistic turn, as these policies assume that students can only gain value by learning about things that they can relate to experientially. In the process, this approach may undermine the transmission of nuggets of knowledge considered more neutral, especially those in the humanities.

Thirdly, read the striking correlation between Soviet Russia and America today by Brandon Galbreath in his article, “In-Doxycated“:

In today’s crazy postmodern society Christians cannot really define themselves with words such as orthodoxy or heterodoxy (heresy). Indeed, both words by definition are clearly direct opposites, such as right vs. left. However, the “doxy” of ortho vs. hetero is really just a paradox. What I mean by that is heresy can easily be orthodoxy because, the side of truth sometimes loses against a more powerful force of heretics. As Alister McGrath characterizes it, “heresy is the orthodoxy of history’s losers”(McGrath 2009, Heresy: A History of Defending Truth).  We have not seen this much tension and uncertainty since the brink of the Civil War. Sadly, most media outlets work for the radical left and are not concerned in the interest of truth. So, we must take a “heresy” in today’s context as a social and political approach, where heresy is seen as an ideology used in world views struggling solely for power. We see this today in the political and social clash that has divided America once again.  Truth has simply been destabilized for the absorption of power. 

Ironically, the title of the Communist Party’s source of news for the people of the Soviet Union was called  Pravda, which means truth. Pravda emerged as a leading newspaper of the Soviet Union after the October Revolution in 1917. One of the most controversial events that the Soviet Union with Pravda lied and falsified the truth was the Katyn Forest Massacre. 

Take a look at the November Issue: The Radical Left & Their Coming Judgment Upon Us All

The Radical Left & Their Coming Judgment Upon Us All

Here now is our special November Issue for 2020. These are articles written across the country concerning The Four Horsemen of western apocalypse who are trotting forth in the apparitions of: 1) Social Justice, 2) Identity Politics, 3) Socialism, and 4) Corporatism. Ladies and gentlemen what awaits us is totalitarianism from a behemoth of government, corporate, and institutional structures both private and public whose reach goes from west to the east, north to south that have adopted a leftist ideological framework. No one is truly safe from these rabble-rousers. This is dark money, big business and big banks; it is Wall-Street and government agencies. The Real Deep State.

“In-Doxycated”

(November Issue 2020)

By: Brandon Galbreath

In today’s crazy postmodern society Christians cannot really define themselves with words such as orthodoxy or heterodoxy (heresy). Indeed, both words by definition are clearly direct opposites, such as right vs. left. However, the “doxy” of ortho vs. hetero is really just a paradox. What I mean by that is heresy can easily be orthodoxy because, the side of truth sometimes loses against a more powerful force of heretics. As Alister McGrath characterizes it, “heresy is the orthodoxy of history’s losers”(McGrath 2009, Heresy: A History of Defending Truth).  We have not seen this much tension and uncertainty since the brink of the Civil War. Sadly, most media outlets work for the radical left and are not concerned in the interest of truth. So, we must take a “heresy” in today’s context as a social and political approach, where heresy is seen as an ideology used in world views struggling solely for power. We see this today in the political and social clash that has divided America once again.  Truth has simply been destabilized for the absorption of power. 

Ironically, the title of the Communist Party’s source of news for the people of the Soviet Union was called  Pravda, which means truth. Pravda emerged as a leading newspaper of the Soviet Union after the October Revolution in 1917. One of the most controversial events that the Soviet Union with Pravda lied and falsified the truth was the Katyn Forest Massacre. 

We must take a “heresy” in today’s context as a social and political approach

Katyn Forest Massacre  

In the spring of 1940 the NKVD or “Soviet Secret Police” executed an estimated 22,000 Polish nationals at several locations including the Katyn Forrest. The Soviets kept this mass killing secret until it was discovered by the Nazi Germans in 1943. The Soviets blamed the Germans for the mass killings, claiming that the Nazis committed the killings in 1941. The Soviets organized a cover-up to prove their false claim and formed a special commission called the Burdenko Commission.

It was not until 2010 the Russian Parliament voted a declaration blaming Stalin and other Soviet officials for having personally ordered and approved the Katyn massacre. 

Background: Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact

On August 23rd of 1939 Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union singed a non-aggression pact. Then on September 1st, less than 10 days later, World War II officially started when Germany invaded Poland. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin ordered the invasion of Poland shortly after on September 17th “The roots of the Katyn massacre lie in the Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact of 23, August 1939, which led to the German-Soviet partition of Poland” (Materski 2007, Katyn : A Crime Without Punishment).

This is important politically in two aspects. This was a strategic act of deception by Hitler, because, the pact would be broken in 1941 when Germany invaded Russia during Operation Barbarossa. In my own personal view this is significant because of the fact that both the Nazis and the Soviets invaded Poland, but only war was declared on Germany. Why did major powers such as England and France not also declare war on the Soviet Union?

The Marxist idea of a utopian society is enticing too many, especially the poor and broken masses.

Beria Memo to Stalin

“The orders for the mass murder had been given by Lavrenty Beria, the head of NKVD, and had  been signed and approved by the Soviet Politburo, including its leader, Joseph Stalin.” (Sterio 2012, Katyn Forest Massacre: Of Genocide, State Lies, and Secrecy. Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law). This memo was written in 1940 and was not declassified until 1990. Furthermore, the Russian government held classified volumes of documents related to the massacre which were released in 2010. 

In 1918,  Pravda became an official publication, or “organ”, of the Soviet Communist Party.  Pravda became the conduit for announcing official policy and policy changes and would remain so until 1991. Subscription to Pravda was mandatory for state run companies, the armed services and other organizations until 1989. 

This organization was a great source of fake news and  actually still exists in Russia today. Currently, the Pravda paper is today run by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, whereas the online Pravda.ru is privately owned and has international editions published in Russian, English, French and Portuguese.

Conclusion

Here and now in the United States, we face a bigger threat of false information and censorship. Take your pick from big tech such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter and radical left news such as CNN, NBC, ABC, and etc. We cannot let this country continue down the dark path of socialist revolution. The Marxist idea of a utopian society is enticing too many, especially the poor and broken masses. However, history has proven any country developed on the ideologies of Karl Marx will only provide more suffering to most of the people  and allow a handful of evil tyrants free reign.
