America: Beware The Smiling Traitor!

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”  -Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator, Source: Attributed. 58 BC, Speech in the Roman Senate

America is again being diverted away from another treasonous act by this administration: the “Iran nuke deal,” which is nothing more than appeasement through funding and enabling militarily America’s sworn enemies. Treason, treason and more treason.

Let me cut to the chase here. If what was happening in this country was happening in a foreign country, the people in this country would have called for military strikes, as well as an all-out manhunt pertaining to the dictators who were guilty of the same things that Barack Hussein Obama and his criminal administration are guilty of here in America. Yet, because it is happening here, the people have somehow deceived themselves into believing that what they have allowed is not as bad as what is happening over in third world countries. What is even worse is that as long as there are smiles and the reciting of the word “Constitution,” the American people are set at ease–only to set themselves up for the next act of treason. But as long as he is smiling…

I was humored the other day when an individual said to me: “Bradlee, you are so bold and harsh at times!” (Romans 8:14; Hebrews 1:7; Psalm 104:4; Proverbs 28:1) I said, “Really? It is the command of God, concerning the church people, to warn people that the house (of sin) is on fire and they need to get out lest they perish! (Ezekiel 33:3; 2 Corinthians 5:11).”

I reminded this person that the Word of The Lord is like a fire, “like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces” (Jeremiah 23:29).  The end result is to hopefully bring forth “repentance toward God and Faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21; Galatians 3:24). The church is to magnify God’s Law (Isaiah 42:21) while the Holy Ghost comes to “convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment” (John 16:8).



Oh how little of the Character of Jesus Christ do men in America relate or identify with today. They are much like Jesus’ disciples.

“…and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am? And they answered, John the Baptist (Luke 3:19); but some say, Elias (1 Kings 18:38); and others, One of the prophets (Acts 3:22).” (Mark 8:27-28)

George Whitefield, the Great Awakening field preacher, said: “It is a poor sermon that gives no offense; that neither makes the hearer displeased with himself nor with the preacher” (Matthew 7:29).



I went on to tell the individual I was speaking with that, on the contrary, the people in this country have been so conditioned to believe that the one who sets the house on fire (encourages and acts out transgressions against God’s and America’s constitutional Laws), endangering all within (figuratively speaking) while flattering, lying, smiling and kissing up about the state of the country, is somehow looking out for the good of the people within. Remember, Judas betrayed Jesus Christ with a kiss (Luke 22:48).

No, these are the characteristics of how dictators act. They destroy through policy and prosper by craft.

“A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it, and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.” Proverbs 26:28

This only takes place when a people throw off God’s Law and America’s founding documents and give a free hand to the destroyer (John 10:10). This is a point no one can deny in America today.

Furthermore, dictators have a smile on their face as they go along not to offend, but to appease – that is, until in the transcending mode he gets to power. Then he can dictate by force.

“There is nothing stable but Heaven and The Constitution.” –President James Buchanan

Be it known, America, that you have been warned time and time again concerning the corruption in your Government and Churches, which is God’s mercy (Luke 12:2). Yet, you have done nothing to appease God’s wrath by bringing forth judgment upon the heads of the wicked.

Because if you did, God said:

Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it. Jeremiah 5:1

You’ve Gotta Love America’s Reprobate, Cecil-Loving Youth

“I Am Cecil”-Protesters

It has been said that the philosophy in the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy taught in the government in the next. This past week, we found that statement to be true once again. Corrupt and misguided government officials who refused to vote down Planned Parenthood and the slaughter of the innocent are calling for a probe into Dr. Walter Palmer and the guide that hunted down Cecil the lion. They are even considering extradition.

Of course, in close pursuit are those who are falling in line with global narratives and initiatives. These are the young, indoctrinated, uneducated, unloving and uncaring protesters who were calling for the prosecution, and even the execution, of Dr. Walter Palmer. As a matter of fact, on Wednesday, one of these people went so far as to vandalize Dr. Palmer’s Florida home by spray painting a huge statement on his garage door–“Lion Killer.”

The protesters, all 15 of them, were given headline attention. They made themselves known by holding signs that stated such things as “I am Cecil,” “Let the hunters be hunted,” “Murderers,” “Killers,” “Rot in Hell” and going so far as to demand “Justice for Cecil.”

Now, I want you to pay close attention to the fact that these people will protest and call for justice when it comes to the death of animals, but could care less when it comes to the life of a human being.

These are called reprobates. A reprobate is a person who is abandoned to sin (Lawlessness 1 John 3:4), lost to virtue or grace, according to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary.

These are those who:

“when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things… Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”  -Romans 1:21-25

These are the “useful idiots” who are being used to make way for the criminalization of those who pick flowers in state parks, or those who may tamper with an eagle’s egg or kill a whale.

These reprobate minds are responsible for calling forth protests when it comes to Kentucky Fried Chicken and their “cruelties to chickens.”

One has to ask what these young people have been subjected to that they would overlook the slaughter of the innocent in the womb (Proverbs 6:17), yet are willing to be made fools in the face of this contrived folly. I can tell you, one need not look any further than to the parents who drop their kids off at the public school gate to be illegally indoctrinated by the federal government through global indoctrination schemes (Luke 7:35; Article 10 Bill of Rights).

They agree in action with the Margret Sangers of the world: “The most merciful thing that a large family does for one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Yet, don’t touch Cecil. The mercies of the wicked are, without a doubt, cruel.

Here’s their message: Do not worry about the innocent human beings in or out of the womb–but get on the street and protest if anyone dares to kill a lion.

Remember, friends, one protester had a sign that said “I am Cecil.” Not only is this a sick mindset, but it is also a very dangerous mindset and one that is not new.

The great Christian theologian G. K. Chesterton famously said: “Wherever there is animal worship, there is human sacrifice.” How true that is.

But this is the fruit of a nation that has given way to a carnal mindset and turned its back on God, the same God who gave us what we have through His Son Jesus Christ!

The Sodomites Are Aiming For Your Kids!

“The laws that they mean to use as a shield are fast becoming the spear to overthrow the laws as they intended them to be.  People just did not figure that out until after the fact.”

The New York Times reported on July 27, 2015 that “Boy Scouts End Ban on Gay Leaders.”

The Boy Scouts of America claims its child abuse prevention program is the best in the country. However, there have been over 2,000 cases of abuse in the Boy Scouts. Here are some examples.

  • In 2005, the man who ran that program, Douglas Smith Jr., was sentenced to eight years in a federal prison for trafficking in child pornography on the Internet.
  • David Watkins, a former Boy Scout leader, has been charged with sodomizing a boy under 13 years of age in his troop.
  • Scout leader Brett Tayler was charged with more than 30 counts of child molestation and exploitation. He is suspected of molesting at least 10 boys from ages 6-9 years old.
  • Scout leader Peter Robert Stibal II was sentenced to 21 years for sexually abusing four Scouts from 2003 to 2008 and possessing child pornography.

If such crimes have already come to the light in the Boy Scouts, one must ask why the radical homosexual lobby is determined to force the BSA to allow homosexuals to infiltrate their organization.

I warned America that Canadian Scouts (CS) decided to allow females, atheists, agnostics, homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals to join the CS. In 1999, they approved the establishment of an all-homosexual troop, which now marches in Canada’s “gay pride” parades. Within five years, scouting membership dropped over 50 percent. Many scouting camps and offices were closed, and the staff was laid off.

As one would expect when the doors to sinful behavior are swung open. Sex abuse by leaders in scouting is another tragic consequence (Romans 1:24-27).

Boys who become scouts to receive a healthy, moral upbringing are instead becoming lifetime victims of criminals who prey on children.

Even worse is the lack of justice these young boys receive. Canada’s epidemic of child sex abuse is largely swept under the rug to protect pederasts.

Brian Rushfeldt, president of Canada Family Action, stated: “The notion that we need to protect homosexuals more than we need to protect children … has been a disturbing trend.”

The Scouts is not the only area affected by the radical homosexual lobby’s bully pulpit. The education system is targeted in a large degree.

After Canada passed homosexual marriage legislation in 2005, Phil Lees of Canada’s Public Education Advocates for Christian Equity (PEACE), who spent most of his career in public education, said the same-sex “marriage” law had an immediate effect on Canadian schools:

Experience shows that whenever homosexual marriage becomes law, children will be exposed to an increasingly sexualized curriculum and school environment at an early age, as early as kindergarten.

In Canada, the radicals have sought to lower the age of consent to 14 years old for anal intercourse.

America’s school curriculum is not too far behind Canada’s.

America need not look any further than Canada and take heed to the warnings while it still has the time (Ezekiel 33:4).  After all, these are your kids.

Are You Guilty Of Being A Real Leader?

“Real leaders are not called to lead up consensus they are to mold consensus, and without a doubt, this will create enemies.”

When you see a leader taking a stand and, as a result, his life is threatened, he gets dumped by his sponsors, he is condemned by the establishment “politicians,” and he is taken out of context by the state-controlled media, you have to understand that he is not one who is going along to get along, but rather is a genuine leader. This, in many cases, is the identifying characteristic when it comes to what a leader looks and acts like. And real leaders are what is needed in America (Rev. 5:5).

What is a leader? Often, when making a new contact, I will first vet them before allying myself (Amos 3:3). After all, there is a huge difference between a public person and a leader.

For example, I had a very well-known preacher come to stay out at my place; but before having him come out, I went and vetted him to see what his enemies were saying of him (John 15:17-18). Lo and behold, I discovered he had many unlawful and un-American enemies attacking his ministry. He was leading, not asking permission to do so. At every turn, he seemed to be in trouble for standing up for righteousness and the laws of our republic (Matthew 5:10; Luke 6:22-26).

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

In contrast, how many of today’s self-positioned leaders, regardless if they are preachers, patriots, or conservatives, are as worthless as the ones they complain about? After all, they have a reputation to keep up (Philippians 2:7-9). They go along to get along. They don’t offend anyone because they do not stand for anything; and if they were to have enemies, someone might think ill of them for actually taking a stand for what is right. Of course, they cannot have that (Gal. 6:12).

In the conservative movement (today’s conservatives are yesterday’s liberals), for example, you have a bunch of men who are no more than paper tigers. They play the politically correct game as long as it is safe enough for them to hide behind their computers and get away with whatever it is they write. Because they live under a false pretense, they are too spineless to actually fight for what they say they love (2 Timothy 4:7; Jude 1:3).

As a matter of fact, when it comes to the fight–which is the furthest thing from their minds–they say: “Let someone else do the fighting,” demonstrating their lack of integrity. They love their country so much that their degree of sacrifice is going to another fruitless conference to be seen and to talk. Of course, it goes no further than talk (Matthew 15:8).

They hide behind a title, watching the game of life and telling everyone how they are to live their lives, but not applying it to themselves (Jeremiah 9:3; Malachi 2:2). Hypocrites!

Search out your favorite patriot, preacher, or conservative and see what they stand for. If there is no opposition, it means they are not standing.

What of the women? I am not here talking about the women who are laying it down, doing what the men ought to be doing. I high-five these brave and classy women such as Pamela Geller, Brigitte Gabriel, Katherine Albrecht, and others.

I am talking of the conservative women, which you can find everywhere except where they ought to be, and with someone else except who they ought to be with. These conservative women act like little 15-year-old cheerleaders who did not get their fill of attention in high school. Now they have brought it into adulthood. To them, the fight for liberty is some sort of fashion show fantasy. The sad fact is that everyone sees them for who they are; and that is “little, immature, snotty girls” who never grew up mentally, but are trapped in the body of 50 or 60-year-old woman.

These women love the limelight so much that everything is sacrificed, including their families. This is all for the opportunity to be seen by men (Matthew 23:5). They love their titles too and don’t forget to add them to their names when they are out in public. Apparently, these women do not have the right people around them who actually love them enough to tell them to grow up and raise their families (Titus 2:4-5).

Do a search on these worldlings, and you will find nothing that proves the contrary to what I am saying.

Herein lies the problem with the America we know. These people profess to be one thing. Yet, in reality, they are the opposite. They are no different than what they complain about (1 Kings 18:21). In short, these people are the problem (Philippians 3:18). They contend that they want peace in a world that is at war with what they profess to believe in, but they do not go to war to have it set right (John 16:33).

These self-positioned leaders fail to understand that men follow courage and not titles (Mark 8:27). They believe that it is their position to be served rather than being the ones who are to serve (Luke 22:27).

Why Is America Really In The Horrible Shape It Is In?

“History repeats itself, and that’s one thing wrong with history. Or right with history!”

I thought it was very telling this past week that the President of the United States thought it necessary to further fortify himself against the people he serves by putting spikes on the posts around the people’s White House. On a daily basis, we in America are inundated with the magnification of the crimes that are committed by the despots who are supposed to represent us (Numbers 32:23). Yet, if he were serving in the manner that he should be serving, he, like the presidents of the past, could actually walk up and down the streets shaking the hands of those he represents without fear of reprisal.

It is becoming more apparent in this country that the people are sick and tired of being sick and tired.  They are becoming more resolute in the lawful action that they would like taken concerning the crimes of this administration. Without a doubt, the tone is definitely changing. But why are we here?

Often, I have to ask myself how it is that a population of 315 million people can stand back or stand down in the face a small group of corrupt individuals who mean to destroy the country in which we live. History has taught us that many of these small groups of corrupt people actually get away with it, at least for a short while.

In America, the president only becomes tyrannical through deception when those he serves are rebels to their own principles (Hosea 4:6).  After all, the history of tyrants occurs when a people are disobedient toward God.

So, why has America allowed all of the evil?

“Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee: Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is his name, Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings: Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day; And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror; And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey; And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them.” (Jeremiah 32:17-23)

But what happens when people obey God and resist the tyrant? Take a look around.  Two hundred and thirty-nine years later we are all here to tell others about it.

Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” –President John Adams, President Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, which is a document declaring the grievances of the tyrant King George, our forefathers established their separation with England with these words:

Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved. That it is expedient forthwith to take the most effectual measures for forming foreign Alliances. That a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to the respective Colonies for their consideration and approbation.

Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert Livingston were all on the committee assigned to draft the text of the Declaration.

Three of the five were also assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America.  It declared, “Rebellion to Tyrants is obedience to God.”

Benjamin Franklin’s proposal is preserved in a note in his own handwriting:

Moses standing on the Shore, and extending his Hand over the Sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who is sitting in an open Chariot, a Crown on his Head and a Sword in his Hand. Rays from a Pillar of Fire in the Clouds reaching to Moses, to express that he acts by Command of the Deity. “Motto, Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”

John Adams later described Jefferson’s depiction of the Great Seal:

“Mr. Jefferson proposed: The children of Israel in the wilderness, led by a pillar of cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night, and on the other side Hengist and Horsa, the Saxon chiefs, from whom we claim the honour of being descended and whose political principles and form of government we have assumed.”

More often than not, we hear about how if we do not learn from history, then history will repeat itself as a negative rather than as a positive. Therefore, I conclude that when it comes to what our forefathers have established, it is one portion of history which we want to repeat.
