We’ve seen destruction recently of property and demonstrations in the streets of many of our cities because of supposed discrimination by police. We’ve heard Donald Trump talk of the system as being “rigged” so that Republicans have less of a chance of winning our nation’s top office. Jihadists send fear into the hearts of Americans — and yet, as we see them bring murder and mayhem to our communities, the administration can’t even say the words “Islamist terrorist.”

What in the world is going on?

Believe it or not, I believe we are not witnessing independent and unrelated events — but the outworking of a global plan put in place right after World War II. Why do I believe this? For many reasons. Recently, however, while studying to prepare to preach a four-week series entitled, “Making Sense Out of Nonsense,” I found some compelling proof.

The year was 1958, just three years after I was born. At that time, America was still painfully remembering the worldwide killing of 60 million men and women. That included 1,076,245 Americans of the Greatest Generation who went off to war and fought for our freedom. These patriots gave their all to rid the world of fascism and to stop the Axis Powers fixated on bringing the world under the rule of jack-booted thugs.

Adolf Hitler and Hirohito had designs on America and the free world. Only blood, sweat, prayer, and tears could stop them. Yet even then, there were people who embraced a radical global vision for world control that included a detailed, long-term strategy to destroy the United States. The vision embraced by these globalists thrives today, with some wishing to exercise leadership in our nation. One person who noted these strategies and was willing to enunciate them in 1958 was Robert Welch.

During my preparation for an exposé on the dangers of globalism to America, I found a clip of a speech Welch gave in 1974 that contained content he had written all the way back in 1958. It presented a 10-point strategy to diminish the influence of America and destroy her national sovereignty and economic strength. In a recent “Stand in the Gap Today” radio program from our team at the American Pastors Network, this clip was also used to help compare the positions and statements of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the candidates’ first debate.

While there is much information to analyze, these 10 points show how the “one world” globalists have tried to implement policies that would destroy our nation as we know it — and how the positions articulated by a certain party and their respective platform aligns with the globalists’ goal to destroy our nation.

Ask yourself: Will you vote to destroy America — or make it great once again?

Who do you think would win the Presidency?

Here are the 10 things Welch talked about. Consider which of the candidates for president agrees with each of these ideas:

1.) Greatly expanded government spending for every conceivable means of getting rid of ever larger sums of American money as wastefully as possible.

2.) Higher, and then, much higher taxes.

3.) An increasingly unbalanced budget, despite higher taxes.

4.) Wild inflation of our currency.

5.) Government control of prices, wages and materials, supposedly to combat inflation.

6.) Greatly increased socialistic controls over every operation of our economy and every activity of our daily lives. This is to be accompanied, naturally and automatically, by a correspondingly huge increase in our bureaucracy and in both the cost and reach of our domestic government.

7.) Far more centralized power in Washington, with practical elimination of our state lines.

8.) The steady advance of federal aid to and control over our educational system leading to complete federalization of our public education.

9.) A constant hammering into the American consciousness of the horror of modern warfare; the duties and the absolute necessity of peace — peace always on communist terms, of course.

10.) The consequent willingness of the American people to allow the steps of appeasement by our government, which amount to a piecemeal surrender of the rest of the free world and of the United States itself. (These points are taken from the two speeches in 1958 and in 1974 by Robert Welch that discussed elements to weaken and destroy America.)

Do the 10 points above sound like ideas from Republican candidate Donald Trump and his supporters — or from Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their Establishment supporters and cohorts?

Please pray with me that the eyes of Americans will be opened to what the evil among us want to do to our country to put us under their “jack boot” and make us all slaves. The Bible says we need to know the truth and the truth will make us free. I pray to God every day that it’s not too late for that to happen for us, our children, and grandchildren.
