It has been one year since Free Press Inc began on 19 September 2015. The publication of over 100 articles has led to more than 70,000 visitors with more than 1 million hits on this website. To say we’ve had a good year is an understatement.

It’s time to rebuild. This next year will see a new President and Congress put together policy decisions that will affect our future for decades to come. Religious persecution is growing all over the world, including the United States, by leaps and bounds. The economy is in a disaster as is our moral resolve to stand for what is right in this nation.

God has not forsaken us and never will. Even when we are unfaithful God will remain faithful. This website is dedicated to respecting God first and foremost. Following conservative values and balanced rational arguments is also what this website pursues. The history of ideas is a power force upon all of humanity. Knowing your place within the context of this history and these ideas will help you make better decisions for yourself and for those you care about.

Celebrate with me the beginning. I look forward to another year of challenging thought and life affirming truths that you can share with others. Let’s start a revolution of truth. Let’s unveil the darkness that hides in dark shadows and reveal them with the Light of the Gospel and understanding of philosophy. There is never a time when the truth is irrelevant and if we affirm the truth, hold fast to it, and do the truth in our own lives, we cannot help but succeed.

Thanks for joining the revolution of truth with your visit to this website. I will continue to show respect to your conscience, your mind, and to God’s Word. However, expect that you may be challenged from time to time as these 3 things do not always agree and we have to agree with God before we agree with ourselves.

Finally, please send your comments with some substance. I’ve been given thousands of praises that encourage me but do nothing to challenge me. Put your thoughts together in a cogent fashion that respects me and God and see if I don’t publish it on this website. It’s time the door was opened for your ideas as much as mine.

Thanks again for a wonderful year.

Terrorism – The Nazi Connection

The history of the Muslim Brotherhood, the PLO, and the Iranian Islamic Republic intersects with the Nazi mission of killing the Jews. The Nazis not only killed Jews in their concentration camps, they were dedicated to killing Jews worldwide, and they opposed any effort to establish the State of Israel. The murder and hatred of Jews is a signature of modern Islamic terrorism that has roots in the Nazi past. Exploring the past connections with Nazism will bring this clarity to this reality.

Amin al-Husayni, the grand mufti of Jerusalem, and a founding member of the Muslim Brotherhood, met with Adolf Hitler agreeing to bring the Jewish solution to the Middle East. A draft declaration of German-Arab cooperation, included:

Germany and Italy recognize the right of the Arab countries to solve the question of the Jewish elements, which exist in Palestine and in the other Arab countries, as required by the national and ethnic interests of the Arabs, and as the Jewish question was solved in Germany and Italy.

The grand mufti was interested in establishing a Muslim connection with Nazi Germany and made many proposals to the Axis powers of Germany and Italy. Christopher Browning summarized the response of Hitler to the mufti’s requests.

Germany has resolved, step by step, to ask one European nation after the other to solve its Jewish problem, and at the proper time, direct a similar appeal to non-European nations as well’. When Germany had defeated Russia and broken through the Caucasus into the Middle East, it would have no further imperial goals of its own and would support Arab liberation… But Hitler did have one goal. “Germany’s objective would then be solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere under the protection of British power”. (Das deutsche Ziel würde dann lediglich die Vernichtung des im arabischen Raum unter der Protektion der britischen Macht lebenden Judentums sein). In short, Jews were not simply to be driven out of the German sphere but would be hunted down and destroyed even beyond it.

The work of the grand mufti and Hitler led to the Islamic Central Institute in Berlin. This institute worked to translate Hitler’s Mein Kampf into Persian (Iran) and to reach out to Arabs and Muslims in general. The mufti even worked to bring Iranian oil to Germany to aid their war effort. The mufti lived in Iran for a time and even founded a Muslim SS group to fight on behalf of the German cause. Not only were they dedicated to killing Jews as a part of the final solution, they were opposed to a Jewish National State in Palestine, which we call Israel today.

One Muslim influenced by the Nazi-Muslim outreach was the Ayatollah. His work to establish an Islamic Iranian Republic was based upon his opposition to the allied placement of the Shah of Iran. Khomeini saw this secular Shah as a threat to the Muslim culture of Iran. Khomeini also had a hatred of the Jews that came from both his Muslim background and the Nazi propaganda he digested. Although exiled by the Shah, Khomeini led the revolution in 1979 that created the modern Islamic state of Iran and is the largest state exporter of terrorism worldwide.

The grand mufti was also a founding member of the Muslim Brotherhood who sponsored both Al Qaeda from which we get the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or the Levant; ISIS/ISIL). The Muslim Brotherhood was also influenced by the Nazis and their work against the Jews during WWII. The foundation of modern Islamic Terrorism was established largely upon the Nazis goal of killing the Jews and opposing the creation of their own Jewish nation.

The grand mufti had a nephew who was also a terrorist. Yasser Arafat, the former head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), was the grand-nephew of the grand mufti. The PLO was dedicated to the elimination of a Jewish national state and actively killed Jews whenever and wherever possible. The PLO has sponsored terrorism worldwide and has its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood and the Nazi propaganda of the past.

The Iranian terrorist group Hezbollah, was founded in 1982. Its leaders were followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini and fought the Israeli army who was fighting the PLO in southern Lebanon. Following the withdrawal of the Israeli forces, Hezbollah began to dominate Lebanon and as a terrorist group has recently expanded into Syria.

Modern Islamic Terrorism has its roots in the ideology of the Nazism. The PLO, Al Queda, and ISIS/ISIL have their roots in the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah all have their roots in the Nazi holocaust against the Jews. The ideology of Islam pairs with the ideology of the Nazis in their combined hatred and murder of the Jews. It is little wonder that they continue to fight Israel and the Jews today.

It is also little wonder, 15 years after the 911 attacks on America by Islamic Terrorism, that as America supports Israel and Jews in general we were attacked. America’s past support of the Balfour initiative to establish a Jewish Nation for the Jewish people in their ancient homeland is coupled with our continued support of the land of Israel today. The target is on our back and will continue as America will not end its support of Israel. Neither will the initiative of Islamic Terrorism end as it has its foundation in Nazi ideology.

In this Corner – A Professional Liberal

The presidential campaign in 2016 between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is between a professional liberal and a conservative amateur. The success of liberals began in the 1930s when the New Deal forced change upon a nation without constitutional amendments. For 80 years, that’s two generations, liberals have been making changes to our nation’s law, society, and economy without the consent of the governed. With that much history, using power without challenge, it is no wonder that the Democrat Party, the bastion of liberalism, has a professional liberal running for the highest office in the land.

Power is the foundation of liberalism. However, the objective of liberals is to make social changes that represent some level of religious activity. Just like the social gospels of the past, the liberal agenda seeks to use government for social justice. The Constitution, social morals, and fiscal responsibility have nothing to do with the appetite for power that liberals have; libido domini is the driving force of liberalism. And the justification of the power drive of the left is the good they will do with it.

Hillary Clinton is a committed liberal. She has applied herself to nearly every liberal agenda she could find in her career. Power is a part of her career and continues to be a goal for more social justice. She was not always in the shadow of her husband as she fought for social justice through her law practice. Government is the means to an end for liberals and Hillary is no exception. They believe they have every right to power and cannot understand why they should be limited in its exercise by things like morals and the Constitution.

Clinton, however, is not a part of the first generation of liberals who used the power of the New Deal to rewrite our Constitution and laws during the depression. She is from the follow on generations of liberals who do not understand that the New Deal was not meant to bring our nation into an economic disaster, it was supposed to rescue us from one. The policies of modern liberalism have led to a modern generation of liberals whose advocate tax and spend legislation that is taking us into disastrous debt ($19 trillion and above).

Even the feminists of old used to oppose things like abortion. Susan B. Anthony and Cady Stanton opposed abortion because they viewed it as an abuse of women and children. Modern liberalism has abandoned any notion of Biblical morality and instead have relied upon rationalist arguments to justify the killing of babies and the rape of women by the abortionists’ knife. The social justice of modern liberals is missing when one million babies are killed every year.

Conservatives used to find a home in the Democrat Party but following the Civil Rights movement, their numbers have largely dwindled. The Party of Racism has shifted to become a unified Party of Liberalism and conservatives who used to dominate the Democrat Party are almost all gone now. Gone are the days of systemic racism, thankfully, but also gone are the days of fiscal responsibility.

Welcome to the Democrat Party a new generation of liberals whose religious fervor is apparent in everything they do. President Obama is a religious zealot whose religion is government and every liberal policy he can support finds its way through his office. He is convinced that he is right and there is no way of changing his mind. He even refused to work with Blue Dog Democrats who were moderately conservative. Hillary Clinton, however, will make Obama look like a school boy in comparison and her goal will be nothing short of more tax and spend legislation.

This election is more about the vision of government than of the people running for office. Clinton will claim generosity while spending other people’s money. Her charity will come from your wallet. Liberals usually practice charity by spending other people’s money. The Democrat Party is professional in making claims of religious charity while using tax payer dollars to effect social change.

The Democrat Party is the Party of the social gospel, leveraging government for religious goals, and spending your money for their religious zeal. The Republican Party is the Party of law and order applying the Constitution for limits to government overreach. It’s not just the person who wins the office of President that matters. The Party in power will shape the course of the nation for years to come.
