Brian Deese – economic and political advisor for the Biden Administration – was asked in a CNN interview what he would say to American families struggling because of gas prices. His response left many people stunned. Deese told CNN anchor Victor Blackwell: "This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm."
Liberal world order? Are they serious? Of course, the first question is, what does that even mean? One thing is for sure, based on the agenda, and the disturbing legislation we’ve seen the radical Left pushing in recent years, it certainly doesn’t sound like a world where school choice, pro-life pregnancy centers, protected speech for all people, and secure borders are valued.
It’s important to note that this was the answer Deese gave in response to a question about how the Biden Administration would answer working families struggling to pay these sky-high gas prices who ask how long this pain at the pump will last. His less-than-empathetic answer: “As long as it takes.”
Not “we understand and we’re really working on it.” The response from Team Biden is essentially: “Too bad. So sad. Not our fault.”
It’s mind-boggling. The Administration that claims to be progressive, to be compassionate and forward-thinking is finally behaving like the elitists they actually have been all along. Hopefully, more Americans will finally see it now.
My truth, your truth
Truth defined through subjectivity:
-everyone has their own truth which is at the heart of the transgender movement
-False truth=I have a different material truth and we can’t have some agreed upon precepts
-Education is teaching nothing has an absolute truth
-I spin my own course and destiny
-if you disagree with my truth then you get shut down
How do I respond?
***plant seeds, love people, when tragedy strikes they turn to those with faith not their atheist friends-they believe no rhyme or reason for life so things happen. Those with faith rely on absolute truths to minister to those with no faith
Standard of Truth
When confronted with subjective truth Ask the question, is that true?
Self-defeating statement doesn’t meet its own standard:
Ex. Is it true there is no truth because if it is true that there is no truth the claim that there is no truth can’t be true but it claims to be true.
-It is absolutely true there are no absolutes-Is that an absolute? All truth is relative so is that a relative truth? No, it is objective truth
-When told no truth, ask if that is the truth of truth? The argument defeats itself.
Ex. argument that there is no truth so the Bible teaches you are not to judge. Wrong!
When asked why are you judging me for judging you for judging me?(Circular argument-no standard of truth)
Jesus: didn’t say not to judge,but stated don’t judge lest you be judged. Jesus stated you will be judged as you have judged others-there is a standard so there is an absolute truth
Jesus tells people how to judge not to just judge but he warned to be careful as you judge and he gave examples: When you judge the speck in another’s eye you may want to take the log out of your own eye first.
*****Jesus was teaching about Hypocrisy
There is No God argument
Moral implications if there is no God affect societal moral implications:
-Determine own morality and own truth so what difference does it make to have children exposed to pornographic materials-all is relative
Reasoning from effect to cause:
The effect known as the universe back to a spaceless timeless immaterial cause
Romans 2:15 and Hebrews 10 both speak to the laws that are written on our hearts.
-morality is universal-every person has a sense of right and wrong-can be skewed by warped darkness
-new covenant at Pentecost with the Holy Spirit in the heart of the Christian
Laws are Affected
Laws are pressing on us so what are the effects?
Morality brings in a standard of laws
Policies and laws do not regulate morality
Reasoning back from affect to cause:
No God, no right or wrong just your opinion (ex. Just your opinion and Hilters or whoever you believe to be evil)
Ask: What is not a matter of opinion?= murder, rape, universal wrongs like stealing
Answer: Objectively morally wrong then there is a standard of what is good and what is bad
Ask: Where do we get that standard?
-Generation unable to differentiate what is real and what is wrong or right
-Plague of imagination-neuro profile damages from screen into real physical life
Argument: I don’t believe in God because I can’t see him
Ex. You can’t see logic but you believe in it like justice. It can't be seen but it works in courts when a person is treated justly or unjustly. Love is not a thing you can see, but
Worldview: argue with a materialist who only believes in molecules-so when asked what is love his response was it is a chemical
*****Jesus-you believe he exists because he left his effects behind
I am spiritual not religious
Question: What do you mean the Bible has been proven inaccurate? What evidence do you have to disprove the Bible?
Ex. Universe is a miracle as it came to be out of nothing-space time and matter began out of nothing-don’t have to argue the whole Bible but just the 1st verse that God created the heavens and Earth then everything that follows is possible
Ex. Miracle: how your organs work without you having to think about it.
Ex. Childbirth: as the baby comes out people don’t yell evolution, but what a miracle
Ex. Truth of Jesus resurrection:
Principal of embarrassment: If the author is willing to put out there their own embarrassment then probably true as most people will not put out information that will make them look ridiculous
-won’t lie to make yourself look good but don’t lie to make yourself look bad
-Men wrote the new testament-men wrote about them being cowards and fearful of the romans-but depict the women as courageous as they were the 1st to go to the tomb after jesus death
-No sense to make up a story that gets you killed-doesn’t make sense
- No sense to make up a story of stealing Jesus body-get kicked out of synagogue tortured and killed
-Stole body while roman guards fell asleep, romans don’t want to look bad and if they fell asleep it was a death sentence for them-bad argument
-If a Roman guard fell asleep how do they know what happened?
Need non-christians writers vs. new testament writers were biased:
-All Jews but Luke a Gentile
-they all believed in yahweh and that they were the chosen people-why invent a story in which they didn’t believe would happen
-Jews not believe a man would claim to be God as it was blasphemy
-They didn’t believe a person could resurrect in the middle of time
-They knew we would all resurrect at the end of time according to Daniel 12
-If they knew the consequences, why would they say Jesus rose from the dead?
Truth: Cold case for Christianity-by Jay wallace
Murdered body-three reasons the person is dead
Apply to Jesus murder and New Testament writers:
Did this make them popular with the ladies?
Did they get money?
Did they get power?
NO-they were all persecuted. Ex. Paul had power and gave it up to be persecuted
Christianity: is not true because we put together a series of documents put under one binding we call the Bible that says it's true
-Christianity would be true if the Bible never existed because there were 1000’s of Christian before the Bible was ever written because they were witnesses-they saw the truth of the resurrection of Jesus
-Christianity didn’t begin with a book, but an event-the resurrection-result of the resurrection these Jews wrote it down and went to their death sentences saying resurrection is true
-New Testament writers didn’t create the resurrection-the resurrection created the New Testament writers
God implication death of God-politically-totalitarianism and socialism
Roe v. wade decision=we are not a theocracy-you can’t push your religion on people
Argument: we are not imposing religion, we are not legislating religion, not telling people how where when to worship-not telling people they have to part of a church or believe certain things about God so not legislate religion
Trying to legislate morality: All laws legislate morality-all laws say one behavior right and the other wrong-people who say they have a right to abortion is a moral decison-trying to put that into law and they are absolute right
If your solution to your problem is a dead baby you have the wrong solution-never a solution if it requires a dead baby
Defender of the moral point of view is essential not have to be a believer- If we lose self-evident truths grounded in our creator- only 2 ways to govern= govern by the truth principle or govern by power-left by power not principle-shutdown-cancel debate-impose our will on you-can’t defend their view-without God there is no way to have a right to anything so they just impose their opinions on people,

Transition to no God
Live and let them rule has taken over the philosophy of live and let live
-laws of nature-natural law-God created Man and Woman-secular humanist go after our children-hormone blockers-reality of what they do to a body-chemical castration-teenage girls-lie pause puberty-pills to kill off reproduction parts-then the lie you can just pick up on puberty when you want-arrow pointed toward girls
-only get over self-image if you change your gender-if not feel comfortable in your body which is normal and work through it-but popular as trans-surgical intervention-irreversal surgical-it is propaganda-abusing your child to not want transitions-gender affirming care-chemical castration
-Education teachers and counselors should not affirm you, but continue challenging you to bring you toward goal
-Educators should not pacify with the attitude of meeting kids where they are at-instead clinical therapy is pushed so result is not to build self-esteem
-instead effects are a generation ofmost suicidal, sexual confustion, gender normative and confusion
-hyper radical messages-who is behind it: pharma will make money off your children. No confidence in big pharma: money and power go back to book (Turek) Parents need to speak up
-irreversible mental and physical damage
Lie: God made me this way
-Christians are being deceived or not speaking up due to a defeatist attitude
-Church should speak up against “God made me this way so I can’t do anything about it.”
Truth: absolutes and standards
-If it is true that you can do anything you want to do whenever you want to do it then alcoholics would be the freest people in the world.
-But truth: Alcoholics will tell you that being alcoholic is not being free. Other Ex. drug addicts, hoarders, etc…addiction Bible: Paul wrote about drunkenness
-Freedom is restraining yourself from your fleshly impulses as it keeps your soul at peace
-dont indulge in sin-need more and more drugs-hit bottom-then need to seek absolute truths
****Point North is North (truth) even in middle of a storm or battle
-Church-love them accept them but Jesus calls us to love them so tell them the truth
-Jesus accepted sin because he dwelt among the least so he saw nothing wrong with sinners so let people live in their own truths
Wrong: Jesus loved them so much not to validate them but bring them out to live in liberty-Jesus said have a heart for humanity, but don’t lie to them. Ex. when he would tell people they were forgiven he would tell them to go sin no more-get out of that lifestyle-Ex. Jesus constantly debated with Priests and the Pharisees as their hearts were dark and mistreating those who need the light the most.
Worldwide consequences (U.S. the target of destruction)
What do the World Economic Forum, Chinese Communist Party, and Bill Gates have in common? Buying up farmland
-Chinese own 100 million acres of farmland
-ability to produce food-bread basket of the world-give us strategic advantages
-use free market-we allow our enemy to come in and buy farmland that could end up in food shortages
-Bill Gates gets approval to buy the majority of farmland in North Dakota? 13.5 million dollars. He is the single owner of farmland in the united states-270,000 acres owned
-currency collapse is coming-whoever owns the food supply will be rich-if currency collapses there will be a need for a barter system-restructure new currency coming in
-rebranding independent truck drivers to “gig worker” puts them under working directly for the government and therefore under their rule (go green products, electric grid, electric vehicles, devaluing the U.S. dollar)
Go Green Go broke:
3 functions needed: Food, water, energy (fundamental necessities of life)
Not diversity, equity, and inclusion
US has abundance of these necessities
#1 in farmlands, water reserves, and oil in the world
-Wrong: windmill and solar panels are going to power the world
-not close to a green energy power grid
-today world powered by fossil fuels-80% of global energy (oil, gas, coal)
-India and China uses more fossil fuels not less
-Media is ignorant-politics-social justice climate justice can’t just rename things, but doesn’t change the need for power grids
-oil and gas will be necessity to run power grids in a non-negotiable way
-US is rich because we are rich in natural resources
-Notice: shortages in food and energy-prices rise because we don’t have enough of them
-Biden blames PUtin tax increase: gas and grain
-Gas buddy did a study over twenty years to see when gas prices skyrocketed. Before Russia ever went to war with Ukraine gas prices started to rise-Putin couldn’t secretly take over US gas and its prices
Ex. Rising gas prices November 2020-November 2021 rise in gas prices 66%, Highest gas prices since 2002-
-Joe Biden campaign: He promised to end “fossil fuels” by canceling pipelines and terminated oil and gas leases, he rejoined the Paris climate agreement with no explanation
-If climate is such an existential crisis and China and India are using more fossil fuels than they did 10 years ago and no one is saying anything about it then maybe this climate change global warming is not
-Rights are not inalienable written in the constitution, but that the constitution is fluid
-Democratic party says there is no God so opposite of founding fathers that said our rights come from God and the government should protect those rights.
-Politicians loan you those rights instead-and can take them back at any time based on your level of obedience
-government decides what drugs to inject in your body- if you can have BBQ at your home, repay student loans, landlords evict tenants who refuse to pay rent, price of rentals and home buying out of control,
***Biden tells you what rights you have and under what condition-no permanent rights as an American Citizen so states and local governments have no rights either
Ex. Law banning child chemical castration, but Biden not like that law so anti-dicrimination laws will be put on notice by the department of justice and department of health and human services that laws and policies that provide care for transgender minors conflict with constitution and federal law
Ex. Politicians can’t tell doctors what to do-because the constitution protects the right to minors to get chemically castration when it falls under transgender rights-called the gender ammendment
***Gender affirming healthcare is a constitutional right-life saving of youth to allow them to transition as minors- calling it best practice-to cut off parts and puberty blockers
-Puberty blockers: mental and physical consequences
-Agenda: Amaze.com: gender affirming sex education material for little kids, is it normal to watch porn? Yes, intended for young children. One video shows a kid masterbating in front of a computer screen. Another video kids learn all about oral sex (cartoon friendly)-upt to you on what you believe is sex-5th grader-your decison-no parental involvement
-point is to destroy parental authority-destroy the core of the family-
-libs of tiktok:teacher bragging to kids about her sex life and telling them she is pagan so she is a witch that is gender fluid
-sex and religion shoud not be intruded by the governemt to overrule parental input into their childs life -Biden want control over family values beliefs
-in reality over centuries-if an adult showed up on a playground and showed nude pictures would be committing a sex crime-want control
***EX. Politicians push allegiance to pride flag
***attack on don’t say gay law in Florida-which is inaccurate-guy in charge of transportation on the view calling you a criminal beacuse you not ingested his views about sexual values
No answer but attacks they have no plan to deal with inflation and gas prices
Hawley: Why are you using the term “person with a capacity for pregnancy” instead of woman?”
Bridges-berkeley law professor: “Your line of questioning is transphobic and opens trans people to violence.”
Hawley: “you’re saying I’m opening up people to violence by saying women can have pregnancies?”
Fight for Educational change
Comprehensive school choice. Free exercise clause. Parental choice.
Supreme court-the money follows the independent choice of the parent.
Self-government requires self-discipline, self-respect, and respect for others. When people don’t follow an accepted standard moral code, the government keeps passing new laws to try to force them to, which creates bigger government and more expense and less freedom for everybody.
If we react to setbacks based solely on what feels good right now, we greatly lower our chances of enjoying a happy future. But if we believe there is even a remote possibility that our actions have lasting implications beyond the immediate, both within and beyond our lifetimes, it should cause us to think differently, live differently, and leave a different kind of legacy.
If we possess a soul capable of living beyond our lifetimes, then the seeds we plant in this life will yield fruit forever. If you believe those things, the ultimate becomes more important than the immediate.
