The Catholic Defender: Wake Up America

Posted by John Benko - October 22nd, 2013

To understand the current war between President Obama and the Progressive Left with the Christian Right, the conservatives, it is important to understand the foundation of Progressivism.
Progressivism is an ideology that stems back to Europe and the Industrial Revolution.  
Progressivism maintains and fosters the advancement of a secular state.  It is embodied in Marxism, Socialism, and Communism.   
This is why it has been seen as anti-American by the vast majority of Americans.   
The Progressive movement 100 years ago began pushing for European models on health care going back to Theodore Roosevelt, after losing the Republican bid for President, was picked up by the Progressive Party who then ran on a universal health care system.    
What the Progressives seek to do is bring about change due to science, technology, the economy, and social development.  

The more you understand this, the more you see Obama’s rhetoric calling for change being a ruse for this change.   

Universal health care is an ongoing attempt by the progressives to take over control of the Government, which would empower itself to maintain power over the people.  
Any opposition will be squashed.  Obama’s attempt to take over the health care system in the United States was built upon beginning with Theodore Roosevelt.  
Consider our Presidents who would try to condition our society for such a takeover: 
Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon (only Republican), Carter, and Clinton.  
Clinton’s (Hilarycare) attempt is noteworthy because of the great opposition that caused the takeover to be tabled.    

The Progressives simply waited until they took back both houses and finally, Obama. 

Once the Progressives, embodied in the Democratic Party, gained a majority, they took advantage of pushing for this Universal Health Care.   

A bill that has 11,000 pages on regulations not even counting the bill itself.  It is a monster.   

Nancy Pelosi called for voting for the bill so you can see what is in the bill.  Despite 70% of the American people’s opposition to the bill, the Democrats passed the bill in Congress without one Republican vote.   
How did the Progressives do it? By taking piece by piece a dismantling of American freedoms.   

The war on Christmas, the continued secularism of America, the war on religion coupled by the dumbing down of America. 

Developing a class of dependence on the Government by many people has led to where we are today.   
Obama has increased American dependence on Government to such a degree that people are becoming entrenched towards a socialized state.  

Food stamps is a perfect example, millions upon millions.


Obamacare cripples the American economy taking 1/6th of the overall cost.  We cannot afford such a dragon that will bring America down the road of Greece bringing bankruptcy.  
All of this has a goal that the Progressives really want, and that is a move towards a single-payer system.  
It matters not what the American people stand for that concern the Progressives, it is power that emboldens the Progressive.   
America better wake up before it is too late.   
The Progressives have taken over the mainstream media, Hollywood, the Judicial Branch and they want to take you as well.  
Obama’s war on the Catholic Church is but a strategy to arrive at an end goal.  Total dependence to man.

President Ronald Reagan warned:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

 The Virgin Mary at Fatima told the children, “Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war… If they do what I tell you, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace. The war is going to end [World War I]. But if they do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI… When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, of hunger, and of persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father.”

The virgin Mary reminds the children of Fatima that men “must amend their lives and ask forgiveness for their sins,” and that they “offend the Lord God no more, for He is already much offended”. This is intended to be for the whole Church. Praying the family Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

 How important is that? The Virgin Mary at Fatima after giving the Children of Fatima a vision of Hell (13 July 1917), told them: “You see Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them God wishes to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If they do what I will tell you, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace… But if they do not stop offending God… He is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, of hunger, and of persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father.” 

If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.

Consider what takes place soon after the Fatima message, in 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia began a systematic persecution of the Church and many nations were forced into the “Iron Block” of the Soviet Union.  

In 1926, the Communist influence is felt in Mexico where again, a massive persecution of the Church takes place.  I find it interesting that the Progressive movement in the United States can be traced to that time period as well and today, the battle for America continues.  America is truly in the sites of Our Lady from Heaven.  That is very good news, but Satan continues to seek America for himself. 

I was just thinking that with all the problems Obamacare has had with it’s website, is it possible that Heaven is responsible? I can’t help but think that as we see great success with the internet.  Consider Facebook, You-tube,  Myspace, these continue to do well, yet Obamacare had three years to prepare, spent over $650,000,000 for it, and it is a mess.  Is this a travesty that can sink itself? With the help of Heaven, Senator Ted Cruz, and Sean Hannity, maybe this will loudly go away.
