Under the Radar


The underlying premise in Spiritual Tsunami:Bible Prophecy and World Events are Converging is that there are things occurring outside the average person’s awareness. I refer to such events as taking place “under the radar.”
Tsunamis in nature begin in the hidden world under the sea, and are typically generated by underwater earthquakes (“seaquakes”) caused by a shift of the earth’s tectonic plates. As the water is displaced it travels to the shores both near and far, building in destructive force, finally wreaking great havoc upon its arrival at those shores. At first, the world remains unaware of the developing tsunami and then, if tsunami sensors pick up the disturbance, warnings are sent out to let people in the affected areas know of its coming. If sensors are disabled or unavailable to provide adequate warning, tremendous damage and death can result.
A tactic often used in warfare is for aircraft or missiles to fly so low that they pass under radar beams intended to protect a country’s territory and are able to attack and destroy the unprotected country.
Both tsunamis and flying under the radar utilize deception. Both are based on ignorance of the facts.
The oldest military treatise in the world penned 2400 years ago by Chinese General Sun Tsu asserted that all warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive, when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.
Sun Tsu also said:
When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, the men's weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be damped. If you lay siege to a town, you will exhaust your strength. Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain.
Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor damped, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.
Thus, though we have heard of stupid haste in war, cleverness has never been associated with long delays. There is no instance of a country having been benefited from prolonged warfare.
It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profit­able way of carrying it on. . . On the other hand, the proximity of an army causes prices to go up; and high prices cause the people's sub­stance to be drained away.
When their substance is drained away, the peasantry will be afflicted by heavy exactions.
With this loss of subsistence and exhaustion of strength, the homes of the people will be stripped bare and three-tenths of their incomes will be dissipated; while Govern­ment expenses for broken chariots, worn-out horses, breast-plates and helmets, bows and arrows, spears and shields, protective mantlets [sp], draught-oxen and heavy wagons, will amount to four-tenths of its total revenue.
Excerpt from The Art of War by Sun Tsu
The socialist Fabian Society, a British socialist organization adopted similar tactics for transforming society and fundamentally changing its values through a slow, steady influence. Fabian socialists were manifested in America in the form of Students for a Democratic Society and its derivative, the Weather Underground. One of Barack Obama’s mentors, Bill Ayers, was active in both organizations.
It is interesting that many ‘60s radicals (Ayers among them) are now tenured professors in colleges and universities forming the thinking of our young adults in higher education.
Drawing on the thinking of Karl Marx (author of the Communist Manifesto), an Italian political philosopher by the name of Antonio Gramsci helped develop the ideology of Saul Alinsky, a communist radical and author of Rules for Radicals which Obama used for several years to teach community organizers in Chicago. Alinsky’s rules are being used today in the political life of our President:
Alinsky provides a collection of rules to guide the process. But he emphasizes these rules must be translated into real-life tactics that are fluid and responsive to the situation at hand.
Rule 1: Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have. If your organization is small, hide your numbers in the dark and raise a din that will make everyone think you have many more people than you do.
Rule 2: Never go outside the experience of your people.
The result is confusion, fear, and retreat. 
Rule 3: Whenever possible, go outside the experience of an opponent. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat. 
Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.
Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”
Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.
Rule 8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.”
Rule 9: The threat is more terrifying than the thing itself. When Alinsky leaked word that large numbers of poor people were going to tie up the washrooms of O’Hare Airport, Chicago city authorities quickly agreed to act on a longstanding commitment to a ghetto organization. They imagined the mayhem as thousands of passengers poured off airplanes to discover every washroom occupied. Then they imagined the international embarrassment and the damage to the city’s reputation.
Rule 10: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative. Avoid being trapped by an opponent or an interviewer who says, “Okay, what would you do?”
Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.
According to Alinsky, the main job of the organizer is to bait an opponent into reacting. “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.” 
We need to wonder what the goal of these radicals is. The goal is the gradual grinding down of American values about which Joseph Stalin noted, “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”
The Communist movement has long set out to achieve a list of 45 goals which would ultimately transform America into a big-government, socialist/communist society.
Some of the goals include:
  • Discrediting the American Constitution.
  • Supporting any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  • Infiltrating the press. Controlling the information being disseminated.
  • Eliminating prayer or any form of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  • Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum.  Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • Promote homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
  • Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

The communists have been successful in reaching these goals.
After a century of continually grinding down American values, mocking them, and insisting on tolerating beliefs contrary to those upon which our nation was founded, many of the goals have been substantially achieved. We live in a frog in the kettle world! The temperature of the opposition’s flooding of American with their aberrant, unchristian values has lulled us to sleep or near-sleep.
More recently, Islam has battered against the values of our country.
We are closer to the realization of Sharia law in America. Suppression of free speech and open discussion of differences is growing. If the UN has its way, any negative characterization of Islam will become punishable by law.
Today we are also finding our country besieged by foreign religious values. While we pride ourselves on not being a religious nation, our core values were birthed from the Judeo-Christian scriptures.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”                                                                                                                             John Adams 

America — it’s time to wake up and resist with all prayer the insidious efforts to derail our values!
The curtain has not yet fallen—although the ropes are being loosened—there is still time for supplication to Almighty God. I recommend the prayer in 2 Chron. 7:14 as a starting place, but only after fulfilling the exhortation in Romans 12:1-2.
I heartedly recommend viewing two documentaries:
