The Lord promises national security to His Nation if they observe and do all as He commanded. An obedient nation is a secure nation. What does this security look like? It is outlined in Deuteronomy 28:1-14, summarized as follows:
- He will set His Nation above all nations of earth
- Those in the city and in the fields will be blessed
- The wombs, crops, and cattle will be fruitfully blessed
- Whether coming or going, His nation will be blessed
- Any enemies will be smitten, fleeing seven ways
- Everything the hand is set to do, and the storehouses, and the land will be blessed
- All other nations will recognize the hand of God protecting His Nation and will fear them
- God will bring the rain in proper seasons
- His Nation will be lenders, not borrowers
- His Nation will be the head, not the tail, above other nations, not beneath
The Lord’s “National Security” includes economic, military, agricultural, social, and industrial security, for His obedient Nation. How does this compare to the “national security” man offers?
Systematic Theology, Charles Hodge, (3 vols., 1871-3)
Besides this evangelical character which unquestionably belongs to the Mosaic covenant, it is presented in two other aspects in the Word of God. First, it was a national covenant with the Hebrew people. In this view the parties were God and the people of Israel; the promise was national security and prosperity; the condition was the obedience of the people as a nation to the Mosaic law; and the mediator was Moses. In this aspect it was a legal covenant.
Scofield's Study Notes
What “National Security” Really Means by FireBreathingChristianThe judges were tribesmen in Israel upon whom the Lord laid the burden of Israel's apostate and oppressed state. They were the spiritual ancestors of the prophets; that is to say, men raised up of God, the theocratic King, to represent Him in the nation. They were patriots and religious reformers because national security and prosperity were inseparably connected with loyalty and obedience to Jehovah.
One of the Pavlovian trigger phrases routinely deployed to promote our blind adoration and defense of The Establishment ruling over us is the notion of "national security".
This phrase and concept - "national security" - has been and continues to be used regularly to consistently nudge us toward accepting and even advocating scores of systems and programs that have been quite literally designed to eviscerate our liberty, obliterate our privacy, and generally make us increasingly dependent slaves of the State above us.
While the term "national security" can refer to the physical defense of our physical land and physical people from a physical threat of some sort, perhaps even a physical army send to physically invade us, what the term "national security" almost always actually means is a defense of the status quo. Specifically the political and economic status quo. More specifically, the thoroughly centralized political and economic systems under which we now labor.
So it is that when someone from the Pagan Political Right or Pagan Political Left talks about "preserving national security", they mean preserving things like public schools, Social Security, the welfare state, the military industrial complex, and the fiat currency fueled economic construct that keeps all of these State-empowering, individual liberty crushing systems going.
To the political leaders permeating leadership positions atop both major political parties in America, preserving, protecting, and even expanding Marxist/satanic systems like Social Security and public schools, is a matter of "national security" since, if said Marxist/Collectivist systems were not in place or a part of American life, the nation that they adore and have built over generations of steady erosion of liberty and growth of State power - a nation State of unquestioned indivisible power, in fact (see: Would the Founding Fathers say the Pledge of Allegiance?) - that nation could not continue to exist.
A Socialist/Marxist nation state that no longer had control over the formation of the minds of the young through public schools is a nation state that is one or two generations removed from losing control of the culture.
A Socialist/Marxist nation state that no longer has its population dependent on the State for retirement funding or food funding or housing funding or unemployment funding is a nation state that is one or two generations removed from rebellion.
A Socialist/Marxist nation state that no longer is empowered to "legally" counterfeit wealth out of thin air through the black magic of fiat economics is a nation state that is perhaps only months (or weeks or days) away from utter collapse, since its scores of State-empowering, citizen-enslaving programs and systems simply could not continue if they had to be funded by legitimate means.
These are the realities of "national security" in Socialist/Marxist America.
The sooner we understand this, the better.

Justice William O. Douglas:
Trump’s National Security Speech, Paul Craig Roberts December 19, 2017Big Brother in the form of an increasingly powerful government and in an increasingly powerful private sector will pile the records high with reasons why privacy should give way to national security, to law and order, to efficiency of operation, to scientific advancement and the like.
Larken Rose defines "National Security":What do we make of Trump’s national security speech? First of all, it is the military/security complex’s speech, and it is inconsistent with Trump’s intention of normalizing relations with Russia.
The military/security complex, using Trump’s position as President, has defined Russia and China as “revisionist powers,” Washington’s rivals who seek to put their own national interests ahead of Washington’s unilateralism. Russia and China are “revisionist powers” because their assertion of their national interests limits Washington’s hegemony.
In other words, Washington does not accept the validity of other countries’ interests if those interests are contrary to Washington’s interests. So, how does Trump expect to work with Russia and China when he reads a speech that Russia and China seek to “shape a world antithetical to our interests and values.”
“Our values” means, of course, Washington’s dominance.
Trump begins by honoring the military, police, Homeland Security, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In other words, “America first” means domination by Washington over the citizenry as well as over foreign countries.
Trump then cloaks himself in the American people who “voted to make America great again.”
Then Trump’s speech picks up the Israel Lobby’s line about a bad deal with Iran and asserts that previous administrations tolerated ISIS, when in fact they created it and set in upon Libya and Syria.
Then he attacks environmental protection and complains of illegal aliens, while ignoring the refugees Washington’s wars imposed on Europe.
In an era of neoconservative celebration of US world hegemony, Trump accuses his predecessors of losing confidence in America. This is extraordinary. When a country’s entire foreign policy is based on the assumption that it is the “exceptional and indispensable country,” how is this a loss of confidence? It is massive arrogance and hubris. The problem is not a loss of confidence by the rulers but an overbearing hubris.
Then Trump claims that through him, Americans again rule their nation.
He says that now Washington is serving the citizens. Looking at the tax bill, he must mean that citizens consist of the One Percent.
He next associates making America first with more money for the military.
Then he blames Iran for terrorism, something that Iran lives in fear of, but he does not mention Saudi Arabia’s support for terrorism or that of the US military/security complex’s which encourages terrorism as a weapon against Iran and Russia and as an excuse for its massive budget and power.
Trump then claims credit for the Russian/Syrian defeat of ISIS. It has been proved that ISIS is supported and financed by Washington. Trump’s claim is even more ridiculous than the previous claims of the Obama regime that the US defeated National Socialist Germany. Russia, which did defeat Germany, was not invited to the anniversary celebration.
Trump next demands that the countries we defend pay for it. Who are these countries and who do we defend them from? He can only mean Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, and Japan. Is Washington defending them from Russia, China, North Korea and Iran or from the terrorists Washington creates, arms, and supplies to overthrow Libya, Syria and whatever countries Washington is successful siccing terrorists on. Apparently, some of these CIA-created terrorist organizations break loose from their creator and conduct operations on their own. So, Washington is a government that creates its own enemies.
Trump next brags on the sanctions he has imposed on “the North Korean regime.” He doesn’t mention, and I would bet he does not know, that Washington has withheld a peace treaty since the 1950s from North Korea. Washington has kept the war status open for 64 years. Having seen the fate of Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, etc., little wonder North Korea wants nuclear weapons.
Trump, standing there threatening the world, says that Washington will take all necessary steps to prevent North Korea from threatening the world.
Trump then delivers the establishment’s propaganda that unemployment is at an all time low and the stock market at an all time high. So, what is Trump rescuing Middle America from if unemployment is at an all time low? What happened to Trump’s case against jobs offshoring?
This is nothing but feel-good talk. Trump is repeating the lies because the lies make him look good. What Trump should be doing is pointing out the meaninglessness of the unemployment rate, because it doesn’t count the unemployed, only those few who looked for a job in the last 4 weeks. He should be pointing out that the stock market is not a sign of a growing economy but a sign of massive money creation by the central banks of the US, EU, UK, and Japan. The massive printing of money has flooded into paper assets, driving up their price and further enriching the One Percent.
Trump says that one leg of the strategy is to “preserve peace through strength.” What peace is he talking about? In the past two decades Washington has destroyed in whole or part eight countries and overthrown democratic governments in others. Is Trump equating peace with Washington’s wars? No other country has initiated wars and invasions and bombings and aggressive military actions on other countries’ borders. Trump says that America is threatened by enemies and to protect us the military will be enlarged. He said he was overturning the “defense sequester,” something that clearly does not exist.
My conclusion is that Trump has surrendered to the real rulers of America—the powerful interest groups such as the military/security complex, the Israel Lobby, the environmental polluters, Wall Street and the banks “too big to fail.”
America is a country in which despite the hopes flyover America had in Trump, an oligarchy rules. The American people, regardless of who they elect, have no voice, no input, no representation.
The governments of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush were the last governments that were subject to any accountability. With the Clinton regime the United States entered into the age of tyranny.
