Bausman, Gleason, Dankof, and Polycarp: Counting the Cost in Opposing the New World Order

January of 2020: Mark Dankof in the home of Charles Bausman in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Penned by Lutheran Pastor Mark Dankof on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021 on the Day of Polycarp of Smyrna, Pastor and Martyr.

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Revelation 2:10 KJV

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Ephesians 5:11, KJV

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

Daniel 7: 7-11 on the 4th Beast

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

The Apocalypse of John, Chapter 13, Verses 15-18

In a recent and yet unpublished interview with the Fars News Agency of Iran, I was asked for my opinion of the present state of “American Democracy.”

My response was succinct and clear: “‘Democracy’ in the United States has 5th stage terminal cancer. Both major political parties are financed and controlled by the Military-Industrial Complex, the Central Banks, the National Security State, the Israeli Lobby, and the Multi-National Corporations. All of these entities control Mainstream Media (MSM) in America. True political representation of the average American has evaporated since the Kennedy Assassination in 1963. Add to that the Voting Machine and Mail-In Ballot Fraud in 2020, and the total evisceration of the First Amendment and freedom of speech by the social media giants, and one begins to understand how hopeless the situation really is.”

November of 1963. At age 8 in the Third Grade, Mark Dankof saved these newspapers in Montgomery, Alabama. He sensed even then that the truth was not being told.

I should have added that the New World Order’s demonic brew of Multinational Corporate Capitalism, the Federal Reserve Board, Zionism, and Cultural Marxism is aimed primarily both at any responsible form of Christianity or Islam historically and is the very embodiment of the ideology of the coming Antichrist (2 Thessalonians 2; Revelation 13). Sadly for me as an American, the American Empire is at the center of this Satanic manifestation and is its chief enabler, along with the eschatologically deceptive modern State of Israel, which has absolutely nothing to do with its Old Testament counterpart or the New Testament’s Israel of God, which is the Confessing Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The escalation in the persecution of Christians witnessing for their faith and the truth about what has been happening in the United States was evident on this past November 29th with the publication of an article by Charles Bausman, editor of Russia Insider, entitled, “Why This Site Is the Very Opposite of Hateful – A Christian Letter to My Hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.” Anyone who knows Bausman personally, as I do, can testify to the excellence of his web page, his profoundly devoted Russian Orthodox faith, his compassion for people, his innate sense of fairness, his hospitality to a fault, and the Christ-motivated character of what he does within the confines of the respectable and responsible wing of alternative media. The notion that he would become a target of the forces in his own hometown that have targeted me for 20 years is an especially ominous sign of what is just around the corner.

Then there is his colleague, Father Joseph Gleason of Russian Faith. Even a cursory look at a You Tube video on Father Gleason’s moving of his family and himself to Russia reveals the same type of profile extant in the analysis of Charles Bausman. If one surfs the Internet, it becomes obvious that Father Gleason has been targeted by the same forces as Bausman and myself over time. Buy into their worldview or not, who in their right mind can believe that these men represent malevolent forces targeting their American homeland and communities as agents of evil subversion commissioned by Vladimir Putin himself? The fact that they have been so tagged by the American media and political elite only underscores the reality of the Satanic hijacking of the latter. I now believe that hijacking to be irrevocable and irreversible with the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Which brings me back to yours truly and an article I penned for both Charles Bausman, Father Gleason, and Texas homeschoolers quite some time ago now. It is entitled, “Christian Martyrdom and The American Empire.” From the time of the commissioning of the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani by Donald Trump in early January of 2020 to the present, the themes of that essay are only accentuated by the relentless developments of the past 14 months. Biden’s wholesale alliance with the LGBTQ and abortion industries, the latest illegal attack on Syria by the United States for Israel, the Gates-Soros COVID-19 Plandemic and its advancement of the American police and surveillance state through the targeted coercion of the globalist medical establishment, the ongoing threat of a regime change war with Iran, and the clear desire to intensify the encirclement and subversion of Putin’s Russia, are but a few of the clear evidences of the evil of the Godlessness engulfing America which will only increase in intensity before the Second Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ. Make no mistake about it. God will judge the United States as comprehensively as Daniel’s 4th Beast.

And as I mentioned in that presentation seemingly authored 1000 years ago in linear time, the intensification of the persecution and demonization of Christians and Christianity in the United States and the West will worsen beyond that seen since the Ancient Roman Empire of Nero and Domitian. I said then that:

Let me add one sobering thought for your long term consideration tonight. My final premise is this:  It may not simply be enough to refuse to kill innocents on behalf of the American Empire and its Emperors.  The Lord may require that we be willing to die a death of Martyrdom Witness by the hand of this Empire at a time of His choosing.  Stephen, Peter, and Paul come to mind instantly as New Testament examples.  Revelation 2: 8-11 and The Cry of the Martyrs found in the 5th Seal of John’s Apocalypse in Revelation 6: 9-11 are verses which accompany these Saints of God in constant reverberations within the heart, the mind, the soul of those in closest union with Christ.

PolycarpSmyrna02

     And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.  . . .

     And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

     And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

     And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

     I believe these cited verses, among others, provide us with a New Testament doctrine of witness and faithfulness unto death.  It is not an accident in redemptive history that the first example this post-apostolic faithfulness unto death proves to be St. Polycarp of Smyrna.

     Polycarp (A. D. 69-155) is one of the 3 chief Apostolic Fathers, along with Clement of Rome and Ignatius of Antioch.  His name translates into Greek as “much fruit” (Πολύκαρπος).  The two chief works which enable us to have some access to his life and death in Christ are The Martyrdom of Polycarp (Μαρτύριον του Αγίου Πολυκάρπουand his Letter to the Philippians (Επιστολή προς Φιλιππησίους). You are assigned each of these for reading and contemplation, as your parents work these into your homework schedules.  Of the many things that are exciting about homeschooling, the experience of an entire family learning together is chief among them.  So shall it be here also.

Logos02
The Lord Jesus Christ to the Church of Smyrna and The Israel of God Through the Ages:  “Be Thou Faithful Unto Death, and I Will Give Thee the Crown of Life.”

     Irenaeus indicates that he heard Polycarp in his youth.  Tertullian informs us that Polycarp had been a disciple of John the Apostle, our author of the Gospel of John, 1st-2nd-3rd John, and the Revelation on Patmos.  Jerome later conveys to us the fact that John had ordained Polycarp the Bishop of Smyrna.  Keep in mind that the Church of Smyrna in Revelation 2 was the economically poor but spiritually rich church, the church in Asia Minor warned specifically about the Synagogue of Satan, and the church instructed to be faithful unto death against the backdrop of an evil Roman Empire.  It is the prototype of the remnant Israel of God at the end of history, as the people of Christ watch spiritual darkness and apocalyptic political developments engulf the planet while clinging to the Word of God, the Holy Sacrament, and the testimony of Prophets, Apostles, and Saints.

     Lutheran scholar turned Orthodox, Jaroslav Pelikan notes this backdrop of the execution of Polycarp in Credo:  Historical and Theological Guide to Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition, page 223:

     When, in the first postbiblical account of a Christian martyrdom, The Martyrdom of Polycarp, the Roman proconsul, Statius Quadratus, the political and spiritual descendant of Pontius Pilate and the representative of Emperor Antoninus Pius, orders the aged Polycarp, “Swear by the fortune of Caesar!” Polycarp instead confesses “with boldness, ‘I am a Christian.  And if you wish to learn what the doctrines of Christianity are, appoint me a day, and you shall hear them.’”  And so he went to his death.  The twentieth century, which saw the rise of both Nazi and Communist totalitarian regimes that were inimical to Christianity, also therefore produced several such confessions that were political acts in this special sense. [see Barmen Declaration of 1934]

     And so we come to the end of the hour with the question of the day being this:  While virtually everyone here will accept at face value the evil character of Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon, the Ancient Roman Empire, or the Hitler and Stalin regimes, is the American Empire somehow a beacon of light and hope to the world as our educational system, pastors, and churches often insist that it is, or is the verdict of the Activist Post more devastatingly accurate over 7 years ago in its essay, “10 Reasons America Will Be Judged as the Most Brutal Empire in History?”  Put another way, will our young people be doing the will of the Lord in serving in The Empire’s War on Terror, or is the way of Polycarp, the way of Peter and Paul, and the exilic path of John, Solzhenitsyn, Sununu and Assange, His will for the lives of those who gathered here tonight if the situation so requires?

American Christians:  Shall They Support the New World Order’s War on Putin’s Russian Orthodox Christian Renaissance?

     For the Christian living in the United States, that question will not go away.  I hope each person here tonight will avail himself or herself of the links to articles and broadcasts over time necessary to examine the question at hand, and to search the Scriptures prayerfully and diligently.  I am thankful that a remnant of people in this city have sought to examine the evidence for themselves and to allow the Lord to lead them in the truth over time as He wills.  And in these dark days and nights, with the eschatological time clock of God ticking to the end of this present cosmos and the beginning of eternity, let us think tonight not only of our own families and friends, but those around the world already mentioned as among those most presently persecuted and endangered.  The Lord’s admonition of Revelation 2:11 echoes once again in our hearts, our minds, and our souls:  “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. . . .

     And so we close tonight with that prayer.  May we have ears to hear.  May we hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  May we overcome.  May we be spared the second death in the Lake of Fire.  For the end fast approaches.  Amen.

The Mystery of the Word Who Became Flesh and Dwelt Among Us, The Light Who Permeates The Darkness.

And so I now conclude on this Day of Polycarp of Smyrna, Pastor and Martyr on February 23, 2021, that the Christian believer in the United States and the West must be more deeply in prayer, meditation, and study of the Word of God than ever before. The increasing danger to the Confessing Church of Christ posed by the New World Order has its counterpart in the blessings of God for those who remain faithful unto death (Revelation 2: 10-11). Time’s speed increases as the cosmos hurtles toward the last events in history before the return of Christ. Watch. Wait. Be ready.

There is a sobering corollary. Those who worship the American Empire as the personification of Christ shall die the Second Death (Revelation 20: 14). And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both body and soul in hell (Matthew 10: 28).

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches (Revelation 2:29).

Where is Mass Resistance to Anything in America? Mark Dankof’s Thoughts after Pride Week and Before the 4th of July

Generations-Adrian-Mark-And-Andy

Mark Dankof is obviously in the Middle for a change.  Dr. Adrian Krieg is on the left.  Andrew Carrington Hitchcock on the right.  Join us for “Generations” on Mondays on EuroFolkRadio.

     A fine lady from Idaho Eagle Forum named Jane Lesko Eden has been informing me of the events planned for the National Education Association’s upcoming National Representative Assembly Meeting in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center, which ironically enough begins on July 4th, American Independence Day.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what their agenda is.  Have a look at “The NEA Commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising to Support our LGBTQ Students, Members, and Community at the 2019 NEA Representative Assembly Meeting.”

The National Education Association:  Celebrating LGBTQ Perversion and the Coercive Promotion of Cultural Marxism in American Schools

     I have since received information on a website called Mass Resistance.  Given my age, I remember the days when mass resistance was an idea promoted by far left groups in the 1960s during the Vietnam War, some of them Red dominated.  All were promoters of the sexual and drug revolutions of that decade that has permeated American cultural attitudes and practices ever since. The irony now is that the website with that name is a conservative group of parents, activists, and educators who collectively agree that sexual education of children in schools and public libraries by perverts is not simply a bad idea, but a concept rooted in demonic insanity, not to mention worship of the Central State.  I concur.

ElephantPrideWeekendReturn

Whether it is the Cultural Marxism and the Pride of the New World Order, or the Wars of the American Empire for the New World Order and Israel, Mark Dankof has some sage advice:  Don’t Follow the Herd.

     I remember my interview with Press TV Iran after the Obergefell SCOTUS decision of June 26th, 2015.  I identified the folks disproportionately involved in activism, politics, and media to bring about this ultimate triumph of the Globalist Left in hijacking the cultural and political attitudes of the people of the United States on the issue of gay and lesbian marriage.  Joe Biden and I said exactly the same thing.  But he thought it was a great victory for the Constitution, fairness, and civic and cultural advancement. I, however, spoke in complete antithesis to his celebration of that pivotal event 4 years ago on international television outside the controlled American media consortiums.  The usual suspects in those lofty environs subsequently suggested I was being outrageous by suggesting the provable identity of those who carried the weight of the battle won by the Culturally Marxist Left in the Supreme Court, even though Mr. Biden stated the same thing in Israel.  Perhaps Mr. Biden, every Democratic Presidential Primary Contender for 2020, and every politician in either major party running for anything up or downline on the ballot ought to be asked now about using public schools and libraries to promote the use of Drag Queens and other assorted deviants among us in reaching the youngest and most vulnerable with their poisonous brews with taxpayers money.  But don’t bet on it.

A Most Encapsulating and Enchanting Photo Symbolizing the Merger of International Faggotry, the American Surveillance Police State, and the Supporting of Zionist Wars Against Iran and Putin: Welcome to the Headquarters of the National Security Agency (NSA) in Fort Meade during Pride Week

     Which brings me to another observation.  The Cultural Right, much of it comprised of Christians of various traditions, usually seems to avoid mentioning the connection I did to the real perpetrators of the victories of Cultural Marxism in America embodied in the Roe v Wade decision of 1973, and then in the Obergefell decision 42 years later.  Many of them sadly support Mr. Netanyahu and his gang of thugs with their 5th Column operating so effectively in the United States.  The efforts of MassResistance, Eagle Forum, LifeSiteNews, and others are to be supported in every way possible, but with the full understanding that unless the wider context of the targeting of this country and the West is understood, ultimate victory and reconquest of the Old Republic shall remain impossible. And as far as the Neo-Conservative/Zionist control of the Republican Party is concerned, many of its agents like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Victoria Nuland, and Sam Brownback support LGBTQ machinations and illegal coup d’etats abroad in the targeting of entire countries for subversive purposes. Discernment in regard to why is the key for American conservatives and Christians to embrace a Culture of Life both domestically and globally.  It will not do to be pro-life and anti-LGBTQ Stateside while supporting the exportation of an international Culture of Death globally, either morally or in terms of political and spiritual credibility.

    As for the Cultural Marxists predominantly but not exclusively found in the Democratic Party, it is taboo to mention what both Joe Biden and I did about the folks behind their successes in my lifetime, even as many of them bathing in the supposed glories of gay marriage and abortion-on-demand have little to no trouble with the pro-War for Empire agenda of most of their Party standard-bearers receiving tons of campaign money from the real source of money and power in the United States. That real source loves the Culture of Death, both the domestic version and its international counterpart, where mass murder through wars, False Flags, economic blackmail and the targeted exportation of corrosive perversion are promoting Greater Israel and the post-Bretton Woods Central Banking System globally premised on the maintenance of the American Dollar as the reserve currency of the planet.

Otten43

     Charles Bausman’s Russia Insider is an outstanding news and media site which shows how every day how this packaged agenda of the Culture of Death is directed against anyone and anything which stands in the way of the world governmental system perpetrated by the United States and the Zionist Beast which controls it.  One classic example for today from Mr. Bausman’s most informative page is Violence Erupts as West Turns its Sexual Subversion Weapon on Georgia by James George Jatras on that site.  That article contains links to the identical game plan for Ukraine and Moldova among others.  If you’re an American reader, your tax monies are paying for these games in these countries, even as you are also paying taxes to an American educational system targeting your kids with Drag Queens in public libraries and in your local school. Mr. Jatras also has a most revealing piece in Chronicles Magazine entitled, “What’s Really Behind the State Department’s Meddling in Ukraine?” I urge you to read these materials and distribute them to your friends and family members while there is yet time.

MassResistance01

Houston MassResistance exposes more horror: 2nd public library “Drag Queen” is convicted child sex offender – and a transgender prostitute specializing in BDSM.

I have spent 18 long years since 9-11 broadcasting and writing on these matters.  In Christian Martyrdom and the American Empire, I inscribed the following:

     My opening premise tonight is this:  The American Empire and its linkage to the Zionist State of Israel is intrinsically evil.  These entities are at the center of the drive to the New World Order, which in turn encompasses the ideology of world government; central banking; a controlled news media; the Culturally Marxist ideologies of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, the LGBTQ agenda, societal acceptance of pornography, and an inherent opposition to authentic Christianity.  These entities seek to enslave the entire globe with this Satanic ideology, utilizing internal subversion, wartime economic sanctions, a global surveillance police state, and overt threats of military force against nation-states who do not acquiesce to the Beast.  Iran and a post-Communist Russia being revitalized by Russian Orthodox Christian spirituality and culture are but the latest targets. The symbols of the Christian Cross and the American Flag and Constitution shall be those chosen to sell lies to the American public and the American churches as to what this coming battle is about.  Make no mistake about it.  The New World Order is about neither.  It is the avowed enemy of both, no matter how many United States Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy recruitment ads appear during NFL games suggesting otherwise.

     So after Pride Month and with another 4th of July celebration only two days away, I will write no more for the evening.  It is time for spiritual reading, searching God’s Word, and prayer in my home sanctuary.

    I reiterate that I sincerely salute Mass Resistance for its fine efforts to reverse the evil tide in American culture and education, even as I observe since 9-11 that the reaction of the American public to the real issues surrounding the Culture of Death both domestically and internationally have resulted thus far in Mass Indifference.  In terms of eschatology, I believe the end of linear history prophesied by our Lord Jesus Christ in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) is drawing ever closer.  That is my ultimate hope, even as I see the America I once knew slipping away with terrifying speed, even as The Empire is ever closer to bringing apocalypse to the planet.

     Finally, I don’t observe the 4th of July anymore in attendance at public gatherings.  I will be seen nowhere near these events in 48 hours. The politically and culturally autistic Americans who attend such are free to do so, but why they would celebrate the current condition of this country and the mass indifference most of these alleged patriots display about its malignant condition is a total mystery to me.  If you want my perspective on Independence Day, my thoughts in “A ‘Communist’s’ Thoughts on the 4th of July” are still available in a variety of places. I’ll repeat my sage advice from one of this article’s photo captions: Don’t Follow the Herd. Do a lot less flag-waving and drinking.  Do a lot more reading, thinking, contemplating, and praying.  The Founding Fathers would salute you as the clock ticks on to Midnight.
