Was Monica Goodling Taken Advantage Of By Pat Robertson and George Bush?

Posted by Job on April 11, 2007

Let us consider some things on the Monica Goodling matter.

1) George W. Bush gets elected President thanks in no small part to the machinations of Pat Robertson in the South Carolina 2000 primary. Note that Robertson went full bore for Bush despite A) Bush’s abject refusal to commit to overturning Roe v. Wade B) Bush’s absence of support for Israel C) Bush’s tendency to spend big and expand government D) Bush’s preference for the multinational conglomerates over American companies and workers E) Bush’s liberal views on homosexuality F) Bush’s liberal views on immigration G) the more conservative Steve Forbes in the race. (Some allege that Robertson supported Bush because of the billionaire – that’s right, Robertson is a billionaire, was born to a wealthy family, and is a Yale graduate like Bush – Robertson has heavy interests in oil refining  – Robertson caused me, a former asthma sufferer, great offense when he demanded that the EPA requirements forcing him to use ethanol instead of that poison MBTE in gasoline be lifted when I was watching his 700 Club – and has other international business interests  – including diamond trading, causing him to be an apologist for Liberia’s genocidal ruler Charles Taylor –  preferring the corporate welfare/alter regulations to help big business Bush over the more free – market oriented Forbes.)

2. One of Bush’s appointments during his first term was Kay Cole James to the director of the Office Of Personnel Management (the top human resources job in federal government), who at the time was a Robertson employee but had a history of jobs in the Reagan and Bush administrations and with the Heritage Foundation and similar. (ExxonMobil is a major contributor to the Heritage Foundation). James hires 150 Regent University Law School graduates to the Department of Justice, including Goodling. Now personally, I say that this is a GOOD THING. The people who are acting AGHAST at this are merely angry that Bible – believing Christians are working in government. The very same people who are shrieking “qualifications” forget that Bill Clinton fired virtually every single White House staffer and replaced them with college kids when he came into office; he later claimed that it was to save money, but it was obviously to remove as much of the Reagan – Bush influence as he could and replace them with people that he could intimidate, take advantage of, and mislead (excuse me, trust).

3. Now while I am actually GLAD that Regent University graduates are in government (and would love it if Liberty, Oral Roberts, Wheaton, Bob Jones, etc. students would join them), we have to consider the real possibility that Bush, Robertson, Ashcroft, Gonzales, and Cole James put them in places where they could be intimidated, taken advantage of, and misled precisely for that purpose. Now of course, despite what the anti – Christ media would have you believe, the mere presence of such people in these positions is nothing unusual: Republicans regularly hire them in place of the products of the Marxist elite universities in hopes of getting someone whose views will represent the other 95% of the population. But the more you read about the Goodling case, it honestly appears that she was tricked and pressured into doing things that A) were not in her own best interests and B) possibly illegal on orders from people that she trusted, and that she was placed in that position precisely so that she could be used in that reason.

Again, this is nothing exceptional whatsoever. The anti – Christ media would have you believe that Monica Goodling’s behavior can be blamed on A) Christian law schools having their students playing vacation Bible school trivia during legal ethics classes and B) Christians will do whatever their pastors tell them without question. Please remember that one of the most disgusting things about the Clinton administration was the endless string of people willing to fall on the sword for Clinton by losing their jobs, going to jail, etc. As a matter of fact, if one buys the whole notion that the Monica Lewinsky scandal was actually as it appeared on its face rather than a plot by Gingrich and Clinton to distract the nation while they pursued the Council on Foreign Relations (to which they both belong) agenda behind the scenes, then the only reason why Clinton was ever nailed on THAT charge was because Kenneth Starr finally found one person, Vernon Jordan, with enough sense not to buy Clinton’s “it’s about the movement!” nonsense and go to jail for him (word had it that Clinton tried mightily, and was very angry at Jordan for not doing so). This happened with non – Christians under Clinton, Reagan, Bush I, Carter, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, Truman, Roosevelt, etc., it happens in big business, it is just a fact of power and privilege that the powerful and privileged will surround themselves with people who are so devoted to them that they will break the law for them, and will take the punishment for their bosses when their bosses break the law.

The problem here is that CHRISTIANS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE DIFFERENT. AND CHRISTIAN INSTITUTIONS ARE SUPPOSED TO INSTILL A SPIRITUAL AND MORAL CHARACTER IN THEIR STUDENTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY WILL BE DIFFERENT. Now of course, Monica Goodling does not represent Regent University and all of its fine graduates, no matter how much the anti – Christ media and the others who have rejected the Bible would like you to believe. But you must realize that this nonsense happens far too often in CHURCHES with the scandals, coverups, circle – the – wagons, etc. for us to ignore. And just as Clinton supporters remained in his camp despite the scandals and the Bush fans have done the same, a great many church people rarely abandon their corrupt preachers and administrators, or if they do it is for worldly reasons (i.e. people embarrassed by Ted Haggard, not that they left because of his bizarre behavior beforehand) and not spiritual ones. This is proof that in many cases and respects, the church system is just another worldly institution like government, business, and everything else. Any wonder why churches will fall under control of the beast (the anti – Christ) during the great tribulation along with governmental and economic systems?

So this brings us back to Bush, Robertson, Cole James, and Goodling. Now if you watch the 700 Club and similar, you will see Robertson and everyone else talk about how great it is to have “an openly professing Bible – believing Christian like Bush in the White House”. It is reasonable to assume that Goodling was familiar of Robertson’s vigorous endorsements of the fellow since she used to work for Robertson. It is also reasonable to assume that such endorsements carried weight with her since she sought out his university to attend. So, if she did in fact commit what she is accused of, how much did the statements of a man that this woman regard as a pastor influence her thinking that her employers, the Bush administration, could and should be trusted? I wonder if this woman would have acted in this manner had Robertson made the obligatory “well, he may be a Christian, but he is also a politician and is also just a man, so you know when people get that type of power you never know …”. Then again, were he to say that about Bush, I guess he would have to say that about HIMSELF, right?

This is just another example of how Christians should always put their faith and trust not in man but in God, and to always do what is right. Whatever God we get, we are to advance God’s agenda and not our own. That way, if we do get fired and or thrown into prison, we A) will not have to take the Fifth Amendment and more importantly B) our tribulation will be in service to the Will of God, and not over some partisan political nonsense over voter fraud. Look, I generally (make that almost exclusively) vote Republican myself, but if this is how these people are going to act, then JUST MAYBE the voters in a generally Republican – leaning state like New Mexico knew what they were doing when they went to the other side, and it JUST MIGHT have been God’s Will for things to turn out the way that they did. Unfortunately, it does not appear that there was anyone around to tell Monica Goodling that when it counted. Ultimately, Goodling herself is to blame, but us country folks do have this phrase called “fattening frogs for snakes”, and if Robertson and Regent University allow these kids to think that they can trust the Bush administration or any other political/big business outfit, then that is EXACTLY what they did. The lesson, Bible – believing Christians, is that if YOU are in one of these situations, whether you are in the secular arena or the church one (ESPECIALLY in the church one), make sure that you do what GOD commands you to do (if you are unsure or confused what God expects of you, THE BIBLE is a very big book that covers every topic and issue and can always be trusted), and not what any man tells you to, no matter if he claims to be a man of God, or if someone whom you regard to be a man of God endorses him as so. At the very minimum, you have to ask yourself: if this man is a man of God, why is he asking me to oppose the Bible in this matter? Or you could look at it this way: if I stand against this man and for the Bible in this matter, maybe he will see the error of his ways and repent, change! At the very least, you will not be found in a situation where you are guilty of doing something that God would not want you to, which sadly does by all appearances (i.e. her taking the Fifth Amendment to avoid incriminating herself and statements claiming that she suborned perjury) she did in fact do.

    Bible-believing Christians are deluded if they also believe that either of the Democratic or Republican Parties is the “Christian” party. Nope. American politics is hardly the place to find true men and women of God who exemplify Biblical leadership. Christians should simply vote VERY carefully and always pray for our leadership whoever they may be.

  3. Jay:

    I agree 100%! So many Christians are being led astray by worldliness, and that includes politics and cultural beliefs.

    Primitive Jesus Christology

    The Bible predicts two one world leaders or Antichrists who will rule the entire world (Rev 13, Dan 7:8, 11, 23). One will be the main leader, or the Beast, while the other, the False Prophet, will perform miracles and force the world to worship the Beast and his Image. The False Prophet, whose number is 666, will enforce the mark, which could be a tattoo or computer chip.

    Would you like to see who these two antichrist’s will be? It may surprise you and your viewers. God Help Us All!
