That is the way to fight against the nowadays American totalitarian federal government – by the states nullifying the federal-government laws. It is consistent with the US Constitution stipulates that the power of the federal government is limited by what the states authorize. In other words, the power of the States is above the power of the Federal government.
From the news media:
Missouri Governor Will Sign Bill Nullifying Federal Gun Laws.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson will sign newly passed legislation that would ban state law enforcement agencies from enforcing new federal gun laws following proposed rulemaking from the Biden administration to regulate firearms with stabilizing braces.
According to Parson spokeswoman Kelli Jones, the Republican governor will sign the “Second Amendment Preservation Act,” which says that it is the duty of courts and law enforcement agencies in Missouri to protect the Second Amendment rights of citizens to keep and bear arms. It also declares federal laws that infringe on that right null.
“The Governor is aware of the legal implications of this bill, but also that, now more than ever, we must define a limited role for federal government in order to protect citizen’s rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution,” Jones said in a statement to news outlets on Thursday.
The bill, she said, is about allowing Missourians “to protect themselves and acknowledging the federalist constitutional structure of our government.”
@American religious leaders failed American civilization!@
Yes, they failed to safeguard the national Judeo-Christian morality that was the foundation of the unique American civilization.
Very many rabbis and very many priests failed to separate the Judeo-Christian morality that the rabbis and priests were obligated (by God) to fight for it in the governing of the nation from the Church’s direct participation in the governing that the US Constitution forbids.
More specifically, they failed to defend the Ten Commandments as the governing legislative guidance for the US Government. The Ten-Commandments national governing should be supported even by the non-religious people because such governing treats all people as equals and defends the individual liberties for everybody.
They failed to resist those who were replacing the Ten-Commandments governing by other governing moralities designed with the purpose of creating the ‘human gods.’
How? It is simple.
To become a ‘human god’ you should substitute the unifying Ten-Commandments-morality governing by a governing morality that splits the people into the fighting tribes; then, you should offer yourself as a ‘human god’ who can bring the victory and the freebies to the tribes that are his troops.
And it was done by introducing the moralities of Communist Manifesto (Laborers vs. Proprietors), of Human Rights (Nationalism vs. Globalism), of BLM (Blacks vs. Whites), of Antifa (Imaginary Fascists vs. Imaginary non-Fascists), of Economic Equality (Poor vs. Rich), etc., that disunited the nation and allowed the contenders for the role of God to use the disunity to win the god’s throne.
In the governing of the nation, the ‘murdering’ of the Ten-Commandments-guided morality always leads to a totalitarian government because the spiritual and economic freebies that are given to one tribe are forcefully taken from another tribe and any forceful redistribution requires the totalitarian powers, and these powers create the human gods. The nowadays America has such human gods in the government, in the news-media, in the economy, on the internet …
What to do?
Probably, the best way would be for our religious leaders to become the true public fighters for restoration of the Ten-Commandments guidance in the governing of the nation.
Understanding the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17 NKJV)
1 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
Understanding the First Commandment
*God (that is the Ten Commandments and their derivatives) is the only source for the morality guidance – the role of a human government should be the legislative support of this guidance.
*No other sources such as for example Human-rights or Communist manifestos should be replacing the God’s morality guidance.
*God made the people individually free (out of the house of bondage); therefore, the free people must decide individually what is morally good or bad.
*Collective morality is a voluntary summation of the individual moralities – not a morality imposed by the government on the people.
2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
Understanding the Second Commandment
*God is inside us (our souls, our genes …).
*We should not separate yourself from God by making the God’s images outside us.
*God commands searching for the moral guidance not from the outside sources but from our inner self.
3 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
Understanding the Third Commandment
*Using the God’s name just in a conversation or a speech would not absolve us from violating God’s moral guidance.
4 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Understanding the Fourth Commandment
*You should treat everything – not only the humans – through the prism of God’s morality.
*Six days a week you should labor to make the God’s world a better place for everybody but one day a week you should assess the results of your labors to make corrections if the results have deviated from the God’s moral guidance.
5 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon
the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
Understanding the Fifth Commandment
*God’s moral guidance is coming to you mostly through your father and mother – the longer they live, the better God’s guidance that you recieve for strengthening your wellbeing (the ‘land’).
6 “You shall not murder.
Understanding the Sixth Commandment
*The Murdering is not the killing; the murdering is an unjust killing; therefore, you can kill those who attempt to murder you, your family or destroy your land.
7 “You shall not commit adultery.
Understanding the Seventh Commandment
*You should not commit adultery because the children of adultery do not have proper father and mother and therefore do not have proper God’s moral guidance.
8 “You shall not steal.
Understanding the Eighth Commandment
*You should not steal not only directly but indirectly as well, for example through government-imposed wealth redistribution.
9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
Understanding the Nineth Commandment
*You should not bear false witness against your neighbor even if it may bring to you some (social or economic) benefits.
10 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”
Understanding the Tenth Commandment
*Your public and economic achievements should be the result of your own efforts in mutually beneficial cooperation with the others without trying to get a piece of something that belongs to the others – if you are in the real need, the others would help you.
Government guided by the Judeo-Christian morality brings more peace!
The Trump-to-Biden transition has brought us closer to various conflicts or even the war!
In the morality terms, the difference between two American Presidents is clear.
The US President Donald Trump was governing along the lines of the Judeo-Christian morality of the Ten Commandments navigating through numerous roadblocks created by his predecessors.
The US President Joe Biden is governing along the lines of a sort of Communist-manifesto morality destroying most of what Donald Trump has done.
Those who know the spiritual history of our world should know the key difference between the Judeo-Christian and Communist-manifesto moralities – the Communist-manifesto morality glorifies the subjugation of the ‘neighbor’ that brings the war, while the Judeo-Christian morality of the Ten Commandments guides to treat the ‘neighbor’ as you yourself would like to be treated that brings the peace.
Recently the Jews celebrated the Holiday of Shavuot – the day when Moses received the Ten Commandments from God on the Mount Sinai – this event commemorates the beginning of transition from the pagan morality to the God’s morality of the Ten Commandments.
More domestic trouble-in-making events after the Trump-to-Biden transition
Destructive immigration is back
Because the country has no national consensus on the immigration policies, the sharply increased numbers of illegal immigrants, and criminal among them, brings a policy/morality public discourse.
Economy is worsening
Gas prices are skyrocketing, the dependency on foreign oil is back, the investment incentives are decreasing, and the jobs’ creation is down.
Political discourse is deepening
A war against Donald Trump and his supporters (that is the war against the Ten Commandments) has been intensified, BLM and Antifa are not satisfied – they demand more, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office is telling reporters that the mayor is not doing interviews with white reporters – only with black and brown, several counties in the liberal Oregon voted to consider joining the conservative Idaho.
Freedom of press is sharply curtailed
The White House is reportedly preparing to contract with private firms to surveil the social media accounts of service members to weed out those with views that the administration deems ‘concerning,’ and communication giants such as Facebook and Twitter created the ‘loyalty checkers in publications’ like the infamous Glavlit in the Former Soviet Union.
More foreign war-in-making events after the Trump-to-Biden transition
Russian threat is increasing
Strategic cooperation with Russia has completely stopped that leads to a renewed arms race, some sanctions to prevent the completion of Russian pipeline Nord Stream 2 are removed that makes the completion real in just a few months that increases the power of Russia over EU, Russian military has moved straight to the border of Ukraine that makes a Russia-Ukrainian military confrontation much more probable, Russian Navy has directly confronted the US navy in the Black Sea and the Arctic.
China threat is increasing
China’s effort to expand its growing influence represents one of the largest threats to the United States, according to a major intelligence report, which also warned of the broad national security challenges posed by Beijing.
Islamist threat is increasing
Turkey is creating a sort of new Islamic Ottoman Empire with the view of the non-Muslims as the infidels, Iran sees much less roadblocks in producing the ‘Islamic’ nukes and is moving ahead fast, the Abraham Accord that reduces the threat of Arab-Israeli confrontations is ‘DOA’ as the Biden’s press-secretary announced, Hamas is attacking Israel.

<That is true – We have created a totalitarian democracy!>
That is not a figure of speech – that is our terrible reality. We have let the totalitarians among us to use the democracy to build up the totalitarian system of government.
Who are the totalitarians? They are those who do not believe in the ability of human individuals to manage their own lives “in the image and likeness of God.” Therefore, they take upon themselves the task of managing the humans as a herd “in the image and likeness of Totalitarians.”
The democracy isa government in which the supreme power should be vested in the people and exercised by them through a system of representation involving periodically held free elections.
The democracy was invented as a governing system which replaces the totalitarian governing (by the kings and king-alike dictators).
But in the modern times the democracy has been used to build up the totalitarian regimes.
But if the democracy is considered to be an enemy of the totalitarianism, how is it possible?
The totalitarians have invented the way of doing it.
The way is to create a new class of voters who see the government as a savior or as an almighty power that is better to obey. This means subduing the people of Judeo-Christian morality who see the government mainly in the role of protector of individual liberties.
The totalitarians have created the governing tools to breed the people who depend on the government goodies – it is done by confiscating the wealth of those who create it and by using the confiscated wealth for bribing the voters, and it is done by legislating the family’s behavior and morals.
The totalitarians created the governing tools to have the businesses obeying – it is done by the taxation-of-business schemes that reward the obedient and punish the disobedient.
The totalitarians created the governing tools to make the news media suppressing the anti-government information – it is done by providing the privileged information and legislation privileges to those news media that follow the line.
The totalitarians transformed the governing institutions from those that follow the Constitution to those that detect, fight and suppress any dissent – that is first of all DOJ with FBI that are capable to make worthless any attempt to reduce the power of the totalitarians.
If you disagree yet with the assertion that we live in the totalitarian democracy, please try to figure out why we are not talking anymore about the legacy of Martin Luther King (a Black man) who was fighting for the equal individual liberties for the Blacks and Whites and why we are not talking anymore about the Statue of Liberty that is the symbol of same individual liberties. We are talking these days about the legacy of George Floyd (a Black man) that is being used for murdering the Judeo-Christian America, and we are talking about the destruction of the monuments that are honoring the defenders of our individual freedoms.
45th American President Donald Trump was deadly assaulted by the “Supremes of American totalitarian democracy” because they realized he was elected to return America to the traditional “God-guided” democracy.
The American totalitarian democracy is not unique. In the historic past, the Nazi Germany and the Communist Soviet Union had the totalitarian democracy. The most famous totalitarian democracies of our days are in Cuba, China and Russian Federation.
