Chapter 3 The Superpower Empire 1947-Present
The USA's superpower status was earned by the end of World War II or 1945. The nation went on
to become the only world superpower in 1991 and continued to grow economically beyond all others.
Almost coincidently, America began to fall from its exceptional place as God’s nation on earth in 1947.
The decline of spiritual values accompanied ongoing loss of God given rights which were taken from
citizens by government.
Some who believe that absolute power corrupts absolutely, ignoring the absolute perfection of
God, have worked toward defeating the USA's modern empire directly from within or by helping other
nations rise toward superpower status. Klaus Fuchs, one of the key inventors of the atomic bomb, gave its
secrets to Russia apparently fearing American imperialism. Others have given away secrets such as how
to make a submarine run silent. Working within the USA, errant politicians waste money to consume as
much as possible instead of investing intelligently in purposes that increase our quality of life. Returning
to obey and pursue God may help reduce irrational behavior since the pursuit of God is defined as
Transfer of God's Expression
Franklin Delano Roosevelt a president elected by corrupt media bias including concealment of his
wheelchair from the citizens sowed seeds of empire corruption in 1937 by nominating Hugo Black for the
Supreme Court, a Democrat KKK member who said he'd join any organization for the votes. While the
USA was supporting Israel's return as a nation, Mr. Black created court precedent in the 1947 Everson
case by twisting a scribbled unofficial looking note by Thomas Jefferson into a basis for making decisions
against Christianity, ending 150 years of cooperation between church and state, calling for a strict
separation. So the USA fell from its defacto status as God's nation on earth the year before Israel was
restored to that function in 1948. In ideal reality, all nations would work to express the absolute
perfection of Jesus Christ to all, becoming God's planet in the galaxy and universe.
Moving From Lies To Love
News is a commercial enterprise requiring conflict to sell its media. Truth frequently does not
matter to them unless it generates opposing views. Lawyers also depend financially on controversy so are
rarely motivated by truth. Activist judges claim they “bridge the gap between law and life’s changing
reality” [Aharon Barak] but life does not change as much as people’s understanding of it. There must be a
way to improve the world by making truth and pursuing absolute perfection more important to everyone
than conflict, or blithe ignorance of what’s going on in the world. Conflict may motivate change but
God’s pure love can motivate better and faster improvements.
Golden Rule v. Market
Michael Medved's "Golden Rule in action" (Golden rule means do to others what you would have
them do to you) is true in an ideal market, but parts of today's market sells promises, hopes, and dreams
that do not exist in reality. The Madoff Ponzi Scheme sold false investments for years. Derivatives and
penny stocks are not much better.
There are many lessons that can be learned from businesses and their operations. Control Data
Corporation (CDC) built a manufacturing plant in a low income neighborhood and hired a lot of locals.
They had problems and made little social progress until they moved a core business process to the plant.
The plan had to work or the whole company would go under. They appeared successful for a while but
eventually CDC did go out of business. Apparently they put too much effort into charitable social reform
which drew too much attention from staying competitive.
Some people are incapable of learning to perform profitably well on some tasks no matter how
charitable the help. One typist took six hours to type one page – the charitable outcome is obvious. There
must be a balance - poor people have to seriously want to learn to do what they need for themselves to
advance their lives or they can pull others into poverty.
God's Rights Stolen By Government
The inalienable rights granted in the “Declaration of Independence” and the Constitution's “Bill of
Rights” are God given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If these freedoms were granted
by the kind patronage or guidance of man, they could just as easily be revoked. Years later, the
government has already presumed to take rights from the people to whom God gave them.
The first amendment grants several rights.
The right to life is taken from nearly a million pre-birth citizens yearly. It is taken in every case of
capital punishment, from enemies in wars, and managed health care threatens to take life saving
medical treatment from old folks on the presumption they have less to offer society. A person's
contribution is independent from age as proved by Col. Sanders who started Kentucky Fried
Chicken after 65 years.
Liberty is taken with nearly every law on the books and aggressive legislators want to make their
time in office look worthwhile, so they compound the error by multiplying the laws. Saddled with
an impossible burden, we are required to know laws in the tens of thousands. Now defendants can
be charged with multiple crimes for the same event, placing them in double or greater jeopardy.
Pursuit of Happiness
The pursuit of happiness is also infringed upon by government in countless ways. For a simple
example, I wanted to sell a dilution of a popular dish soap in a spray bottle as a flying insect killer
but found a requirement to spend a hundred thousand for eye safety testing instead of relying on
the eye safety of the original soap at much higher concentration. Thus working in new fields that
haven’t yet become a subject of lawmaking is often best.
The first amendment grants absolute freedom of churches to rule themselves as they wish, without
interference from the federal government. This right has been infringed on by Lyndon Banes
Johnson's law requiring the IRS regulation of church political activities. Earlier infringements
were made by removing schools from Catholics and making them state institutions. Infringements
have been made or contemplated based on denomination owned rental properties. All court
decisions involving Christian denominations, displays of the 10 commandments, and crosses
violate the first amendment’s “make no law” clause since courts legislate from the bench.
The freedom of speech. This right has been infringed upon by rulings against such statements as
yelling "fire" in a crowded theater and some other lies, strangely excluding political lies. Who
wants to pay taxes for that? Since 90% of criminal cases have no physical evidence [Barry
Scheck], lies in courts about circumstantial evidence are so common, perjury is only charged when
someone is sufficiently offended. Society would have to become 90% more honest for juries to
get offended when lied to by the state, or defense. Glenn Beck says loss of faith precedes
hyperinflation. The fact that people still believe liars is what holds this nation together! Hopefully
Jesus will be restored as our firm foundation and false witness will end.
Although the press routinely prints all the misdirection and lies that will fit (which ought to be a
crime) this right has been infringed upon by government restricting access to military and other
institutions when the press has made them look bad. This restricts people from what they should
legitimately know about what their government is doing.
The press has also been infringed upon by “Political Theater” which describes intentional
misdirection via government leaks to the press of news it wants reported, intended to give a
deceptive appearance to the public, instead of providing the important news of what they are really
The right of the people to peaceably assemble. This right has been infringed on by government
requiring registration and policing of various assemblies. They also have not been specific on
what is not peaceable, sometimes creating unpeacable assemblies out of peaceable ones, by
Ask For Redress of Grievances
The right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. This right has been infringed
upon by retaliation against whistle blowers as occasionally reported by news media, frequently
involving job loss. Government in some cases has blocked grievance email from not only their
office but many offices in retaliation [done by DA Joshua Marquis].
The second amendment grants well regulated militia and every citizen the right to keep and bear arms.
This right was taken away from freed prisoners with felony convictions. It is also infringed upon
by denying the right of citizen ownership of more powerful weapons than ordinary guns from
some machine guns, to missiles. Those who want this amendment changed should submit a new
amendment instead of making themselves guilty of violating the law of the land with lesser
legislation or courts attempting to legislate from the bench.
The right to bear arms has two purposes - self defense and social defense. Since criminals will
have guns regardless of laws restricting gun ownership, citizens are free to carry guns. In some
cases cities have required everyone carry a gun to reduce criminal activity. Assassinations while
rare were done to Presidents who caused unnecessary American deaths such as Lincoln who
started the Civil War and Kennedy who converted Vietnam into a war. All government workers
should realize they are not one bit better than the citizens they are employed to serve.
The third amendment grants citizen freedom from soldier quarters without consent in time of peace and as
provided by law in time of war.
This right is arguably infringed in cases of national emergency which do not rise to the level of
war, when, for example, soldiers are assigned to restrict access to roads in flood areas when there
is no actual immediate danger. This interprets quartered as presence and house as including the
domain infringement of preventing access to family members of the property owners.
The fourth amendment grants people to be secure from unreasonable searches but upon probable cause
This right is infringed by aggressive policing and other situations where the police, prosecutor,
and judge are a little too close for concern about rights. Situations where a judge is a former DA
from the same district should not be allowed. There are many stories of over-aggressive policing,
some of which elicit public protests and lawsuits, unfortunately after the person’s death.
The fifth amendment requires presentment of crimes before a grand jury except for the military.
This right is infringed upon by the secrecy of grand juries - nobody knows for sure if this
requirement was carried out or the prosecutor is lying. There should be some means of
It grants freedom from double jeopardy - tried twice for the same crime.
This right is violated by the existence of double charges -- being charged for two crimes for the
same event and now with hate crimes there may be triple jeopardy and with states that have three
strikes laws, any crime may automatically escalate to life in prison whereas some of the most
violent murders, by beating, have received only 5 years.
It grants freedom from being a witness against oneself.
This right is automatically infringed upon by exercising it. People do not like to be
excommunicated (routinely not spoken to) so the judge and jury automatically feel less inclined to
support a person exercising the right to not testify at all.
It grants due process of law.
This right is infringed by liberal DA's who do not care for truth. The due process is wrong due to
generic human error 20%-30% of the time [Harvard Business Review, June 2001]. The practiced
theater of District Attorneys and their experienced Vaudeville acts may result 90% of the time in
convictions in cases where there is no physical evidence. [Barry Scheck, Time May 31, 2010 p.
29]. Due process currently means railroading innocents – we need a better process.
it grants compensation for eminent domain taking of private property for public use.
This right is not always observed - adding zoning restrictions and claiming state ownership of tidal
lands is often not compensated. In Oregon Measure 37 which was to restore original property
rights to original owner's heirs was answered with cities passing ordinances with high fees to make
it very difficult to file a claim. Then they worked to eliminate it.
The sixth amendment grants a speedy and public trial.
Speedy is usually infringed for any crime outside of traffic violations and small claims court --
two years from initial arrest to trial is not speedy. After conviction appeals and trials are even less
speedy. Some hand gestures from police or prosecutor signaling the judge to up the bail and other
messages are hidden from the public by the court’s failure to record them.
It grants an impartial jury.
Jury impartiality is highly suspect in some districts where many jurors are too uninformed to
objectively doubt the state's case or vote with the accused when in doubt. To remedy this it should
be allowed to ask potential jurors if they voted for the DA, indicating potential bias for the state.
It grants other rights regularly observed in trials.
It grants assistance of counsel for defense.
This right is infringed upon regularly when the least competent and, in some cases, the most
overworked attorneys are assigned to the defense. This puts the defendant in the untenable
position of having to come up with his own defense. The public defender is often no more than a
rubber stamp for the state.
The seventh amendment grants lawsuits for amounts over $20 and exclusion of retrial except by rules of
Current court filing and sheriff’s service fees usually exceed $20 infringing on the minimum.
The eighth amendment grants freedom from excessive bail and fines.
This right is infringed upon depending on the unspecified value of excessive. What is excessive to
one below the poverty line may be negligible to an average citizen or what is excessive to an
average citizen may be negligible to a wealthy citizen.
It grants freedom from cruel and unusual punishments.
This right is routinely violated according to reports of high temperatures and low oxygen supplies
within jails as well as manhandling of inmates by larger guards. Records are falsified and news
reports claim family or supporter threats where none exist. The right of freedom from cruelty is
potentially violated most of the time because physical evidence does not exist in ninety percent of
all legal convictions [Barry Scheck]. Lying is an expected part of adversarial legal proceedings.
Practiced DA’s are skilled at persuading juries of lies using circumstantial evidence. Physical
evidence may also be withheld and/or declared inadmissible.
Legal cruelty is usual. Anyone can call the police on another person for any reason and get the
satisfaction of annoying their victim with a talk by a policeman. A newspaper editor has called
police to ask a citizen to stop emailing the paper. The wife of a sleazy civil crook has called
police in reaction to a gospel message asking their kids to pray for their parent’s honesty. In a
small town with too many cops, police actually respond to such requests which would be ignored
in larger cities. There are far worse events seen in movies which happen in real life such as police
going to a hospital and killing a witness against them. Police beating a person in public for no
reason has been caught on video.
The ninth amendment grants freedom from denial or disparagement of rights not listed in the
This right is infringed upon and violated regarding public display of crosses, nativity scenes, the
Ten Commandments, and more. These rights by admission of cases testing them into the Supreme
Court guarantees disparagement by at least one lawyer and probably some judicial opinions. The
barring of Congress from making laws against the freedom to exercise religion must be extended
to the Supreme Court making the prohibited laws from the bench. Admission of arguments
against unlisted rights into the Supreme Court puts the rights themselves at risk , which disparages
The tenth amendment grants freedom of states and the people to use the powers not delegated by the
This right is infringed or violated by the Congress passing laws that grant the government
additional powers. For example, the power of the Supreme Court to remove a display of the 10
Commandments from a state court is literally unconstitutional (first amendment, free exercise) and
no nonsense pronouncements by the Supreme Court make it otherwise.
Every major human right given by God and listed by the founders has been infringed upon or,
more seriously, violated by the present-day executors of their estate with the exception of a few minor
court procedures. It is therefore unbelievable that this Constitution much adopted by many nations is the
cause of our success beyond all others. The true catalyst for continuous improvement must be in the
unwritten living motives of the pure hearted seekers of God who fled persecution and had to either
negotiate for peace and assistance or fight for the right to survive here too. This living spirit of
cooperating with God in the hearts of believers passed down through the generations led to America the
superpower we have today.
Americans should be upset that any rights given by God to American citizens were stolen by
government. However, we need to look at it as a deeper psychological problem. Whenever we have a set
of rules, some people will aggressively try to change the envelope and some of that behavior is necessary
to make any kind of progress - unless it disobeys the perfect rules of Jesus.
Big government creates its own problems with too many services crowding the plate. How many
truly vital services fall through the cracks? For example, the Mondale law which may have saved a few
kids from sex abuse railroads many more innocent dads to prison in spouse wars during divorces. Should
such a law which does more harm than good remain on the books because of the small amount of good it
does? Perhaps Congress would do better to have a group like the Congressional Budget Office or
Government Accounting Office supply impact projections on all bills before a vote.
“Congress creates, on average, one new crime every week. Federal agencies create thousands
more -- so many, in fact, that the Congressional Research Service itself said that merely counting them
would be impossible” [John Stossel].
One horrible fact resulting from the liberalization of government is its extraordinary ability to lie.
By redefining words the courts remove the ability of ordinary citizens to judge for themselves what is
right and transfers the decision to the elite [Dr. Thomas Sowell]. This destroys the foundation of the
American government being of, by, and for the people. The Supreme Court and other courts enable and
encourage lying by the logical fallacy of equivocation, which is the misleading use of a term with more
than one meaning or sense. For example, the redefinition of “religion” from the Founder’s sense of
relying on the God of the Bible to a social group promoting belief in any philosophy whatever puts the
legal elite in charge of how the word is used in law and ordinary citizens can’t make correct decisions on
religion for themselves.
President Obama promised his health care bill would not fund abortions and wrote an executive
order preventing abortion funding to overcome objections by Congress members who weren’t going to
vote for the bill. It passed and the government started setting up emergency funds for abortions in the
states [Glenn Beck]. The next day Fox News reported the President closed the loophole left in his
executive order and the fact abortion funding was not mentioned in the health care bill. Subsequently on
July 19, 2010 Beck reported they are still funding abortions through emergency funds in states that elect
to do so.
If you can’t trust a President’s executive orders then it is a free for all where every government
agency and employee can do whatever they want. Therefore an unwritten God given right of citizens
should be the right to trust the government will do what it says. Even this simple right has been taken.
Now with hindsight and backspin there is a new direction, in the sense that going around in circles means
you’re continuously going in new directions. Shouldn’t government try hard to make straight the path of
Jesus from the start?
"All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression,
slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible."
Noah Webster, Founder
The states must actively resist the plundering of and disrespect for our God given human rights.
The enforcement of the federal Real ID Act was defeated in two dozen states which pledged to defy the
law [Thomas E. Woods, Jr.]. When Congress fails to make sure its laws and agencies obey the
Constitution, states are the next line of defense citizens have against unjust hierarchy. When the states
fail to obey, the smaller layers of government including denominations should hold the line, wisely.
In 1782 Congress approved the use of Bibles in our schools. In 1844 the Supreme Court
unanimously approved saying, "Why should not the Bible be taught as divine revelation?" "It's the purest
principles of morality to be learned." In 1963 that Supreme Court ruled the Bible in school
unconstitutional. Obviously if they reversed their decision once it can and in this case should be reversed
again. The Supreme Court is unreliable and decisions against God must be held invalid and nullified by
all citizens refusing to act in obedience to such evil.
Juries should refuse to apply laws that disobey the Constitution. Jury nullification has a very
interesting history. Juries can take control of trials and direct the judge contrary to the judge’s
instructions to the jury. In modern trials the repression of some evidence while allowing other evidence
according to the rule of law, should be nullified by every jury. Grand juries can do more to fix
government oppression by bringing unconstitutional tenets to trial.
Ronald Reagan was one of our most God inspired superpower presidents, seeking to build a
shining city on a hill and in other ways carrying forward the founder’s direction. He also made mistakes
including propagandizing the Moslems to fight the USSR in Afghanistan which appears to have led to
9/11 and ongoing problems with Moslems who did not return to peace. His 1975 CPAC speech has
enduring lessons for how to conduct government, increasing its efficiency without increasing its size.
Future Presidents, Congresses, Governors, and Legislatures would do well to imitate his economic
example of serving the people with lower taxes instead of serving government with higher taxes.
Governments must love the people they serve, working to do that which is right which is of Jesus.
It would be wise to prayerfully consider how our economy can help people today achieve the floor
of equality provided the Pilgrims who were given land to farm which produced abundantly. Farm
produce can feed and house a family while excess may be sold, stored, or given to the needy or a holiday
like Thanksgiving. Government has learned project housing and food stamps does not give poor people
enough purpose to work for their own benefit or others. Computers can provide work for the poor but
computer work can’t be eaten if it does not sell. Perhaps a more engineered solution – where people are
given a floor of food and housing plus additional income if they work on inventions. Most inventions fail
but it would help others succeed. Is there a better way to make an economic floor? The idea of instituting
free cities in every nation pattered after Hong Kong might produce fast economic developments as an
example to each nation [Newt] but the foundation of freedom without the love of God produced very
serious crime problems. According to a former Hong Kong policeman they just break your windows to
rob you. Perhaps set aside land to offer as homesteads with rules recycling land grants when owners die
instead of allowing aggregations to pass to corporations which take homesteads off the market. Further
prayerful seeking God on how to reduce poverty should be helpful.
By taking the Bible away as the foundation of public education and with all media focused on
presenting stories written to a 6th grade reading level, America has become so stupid the average citizen
does not think above a 6th grade level. For evidence, look at the “All Star” interviews on Jay Leno. To
rewrite this book to the 6th grade level could result in something like an encyclopedia, making it harder to
understand because of volume.
My school district printed a newsletter praising its own accomplishment of creating a balance of
outcomes to fill every niche in the economy which means they teach at an average level letting dropouts
be ignorant while forcing smart kids to learn on their own. They also hide their curriculum from the
public in this day of internet openness, so only a sign up sheet found on the side of the road exposed an
elective offering to make monkey paw necklaces, an Aladdin cartoon evil occult item. Neighbor kids now
fire their imaginations fictionally from Harry Potter, looking for sticks to use as wands instead of learning
the true and perfect spirituality possible in Jesus Christ.
It takes years of learning to think Biblically, which is quite a bit more advanced than they teach in
school and culture. Instead of relying on socialized education, learn a Gospel and how to think and pray
at Jesus' level, today! Schools should teach kids to be the best and brightest. I tested at the 99th percentile
in science and was a curve breaker in high school so it must be possible.
Emailing candidates in a recent primary election, it was learned the more intelligent candidates
tend to run for the higher offices. Unfortunately the 'progressive toward hell' liberals, who work to appear
smarter than they are, also win elections. Congress is often controlled by members taking Congress and
America in the wrong direction.
Congress Is Responsible
Everything that has gone wrong with America and to some extent the world, is the responsibility
of Congress. We know it is not really a President’s fault because Congress instituted term limits under
Franklin Delano Roosevelt making Congress the power in charge and the president a figurehead. A
President may get cooperation sometimes but the ultimate governmental power lies with Congress.
Congress allows liberals to disrespect Christian absolute perfection and promote inferior philosophies.
News reports support and exhibit this secular humanism to the world whose persecution of Christians
often involves prison and/or murder. We must not allow this to continue. Congress must become aware
of its great worldwide influence and return to doing the right stuff implementing God’s Truth.
America’s Biblical religion should not be sent to the back of the bus – it should be driving.
Instead of elevating the tolerance of imperfect philosophies, Congress and its reporters in media should
teach those who follow imperfection to stop wasting everyone’s time and start following the absolutely
perfect God of the Bible. If you look at a policeman you should see a local example of doing what is
right. You shouldn’t see the most corrupt killers, accusers, and beaters of innocent citizens in the world.
Ask every member of government what they think of Jesus Christ. Perhaps that should help decide
elections. Contrary provisions should go the way of other obsolete Constitutional law.
Success isn’t necessarily of God. Satan fell because of the multitude of his merchandise. When
we get too much money, it can destroy families as easily as other vices. We have to keep our eyes on God
and weed out the ungodly things that creep in to ruin life. Some people have limited capacity. If you do
not have the knowledge, skill and ability to run a moral godly household near poverty level then greater
financial success will pay for more sin. You must learn how to keep growth in every area of your life
under submission to God’s authority. And the best examples in the world for everyone else to follow
should be the members of Congress.
Congress should conduct impeachment hearings when a President disrespects Christians or Jews.
If Congress won’t judge, God may. For Clinton’s Waco and Ruby Ridge, consider God sent Timothy
McVeigh to fulfill the spirit of the second amendment. For G. W. Bush’s telling Israel what lands to
unoccupy for its enemies while not doing so with other nations, consider God sent Katrina moving many
out of New Orleans [Pat Boone on TBN]. What kind of reward might be earned by Obama’s historic
disrespect of Israel? Perhaps for spilling the spiritual oil of blessing by withholding physical food from
Benjamin Netanyahu on March 23, 2010, God allowed the Gulf Oil Spill a month later, which withheld
food and jobs from many Americans. Congress can call Presidents on the carpet for lying about sex, so
Congress can certainly ask them to answer, or better intercede, for more serious errors. People who don’t
know how God’s spiritual authority operates are too dangerous for government work.
History tells us America started as a Christian nation which provided exceptional life and values
zooming up from mere colonies to the world’s superpower, then made such progress toward hell that one
neighbor doubts if she should have ever had kids in a nation where a 9/11 Mosque is tolerated. She said
people who want to practice something other than Christianity should feel free to do so in another
If you disbelieve in Jesus Christ you are un-American. The logic of Jesus' absolute perfection is
clear. 1) To improve at all, we must seek to achieve a standard beyond our current limits. 2) Pursuing
absolute perfection enables cooperation with the best in every respect and enhancing that standard. 3) As
we grow we give the standard more control of ourselves, improving our inner being. 4) At an achievable
threshold of faith we experience the miracle answers to prayer Jesus did. 5) With sufficient experiences of
answered prayer we can accept Jesus Christ as God.
If you believe there is a human better than you, you should try to become like him. If you do not
believe in absolute perfection, you become imperfect by default. So it is logical to believe Jesus is God
and illogical to disbelieve. Prayer to God asking to help you believe, loving God, obeying His
commands, intuition, and other spiritual exercises can lead to actual spiritual experiences. These can be
as amazing as Jesus' own miracle experiences and even more is possible as He promised.
