"Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle." Psalms 144:1 (A Psalm of David)

Dear friends,

Let it be known that I never take a "holier than thou" attitude toward anyone. If, however, you don't have any more personal integrity than, let's say for example, Bill Clinton, I won't hesitate to adopt a "less sleazy than thou" attitude. I'll do that in a heartbeat.

Did you know that in Iceland there is a national law forbidding any changes to the native language? A wonderful thing about that is that an Icelander can pick up a piece of literature written a thousand years ago and read it and understand it.

Similarly, France has a law forbidding the introduction of foreign words into the French language. Just a few days ago the French government allowed a very, very light relaxing of this law. It is now legal for a Frenchman to say: "Cheeseburger." That's it, just cheeseburger. I'm not making this up. I saw it on CNN Headline News just a few days ago.

Don't get me wrong. I know that CNN will tell lies. I know CNN, like all major news media outlets, is controlled by The New World Order [ie., leftists]. But in this case, I believed the story; because I sat there asking myself: "Why would they lie about a thing like that? What kind of liar could be imaginative enough to fabricate such a weird thing?"  The English language can be very confusing, so let's try to clarify some terms.

Question: What is a conservative?

Answer: A liberal who's been mugged.

In other words, when left-wing disinformation specialists [read: liars] completely dominate the media, after a while, some terms become meaningless. Many years ago (before the BATF popped me) I was visiting a left-wing friend (I'll call him "Bubba") when another visitor dropped in. The conversation became a political debate. Bubba told the other guest: "John is about five miles to the right of Buckley."  He meant it as sort of a "left-handed" compliment, but I didn't take it that way. So I corrected him, saying: "Wait a minute. That's not true. That's a gross understatement. I'm a radically ultra-conservative right-wing extremist. So from my position, Bill Buckley seems almost to be a left-wing moderate. Pat Buchanan is five miles to the right of
Buckley, and I'm about a hundred miles to the right of Buchanan."
Expectedly, the other two laughed at this candor, even though it was said mainly for emphasis, not so much as a joke.

That was back in the days not long after I had taken a keen interest in politics and was still somewhat politically naive. The reason I used to describe myself thus was to be shocking and offensive and to express my "in-your-face" attitude toward the left-wing (in general, not toward Bubba personally). So it was my way of throwing down the gauntlet and saying: "I'm not going to be nice anymore. When the wicked have begun to wage war against innocent, helpless victims, it is no longer nice for nice men to be nice."

But as my understanding of politics increased, I began using those
terms less and less to describe my position. Some have become
meaningless, and others can be misconstrued. For example, I'm not radical at all, but merely reasonable. I only proclaim truth, neither more nor less. And truth, by virtue of being true, is always reasonable, never radical. But leftists don't think there is any such thing as eternal truth- truth independent of whether most people believe it or not.  Since the media have diverted the meaning of "conservative" from the original, it no longer makes sense to use it. Folks couldn't be sure what you're talking about. Conservative? What kind? We use words to draw pictures, in other peoples' minds, of what we're thinking. So a word's true meaning is what most people think it means, even if they're "wrong" (that is, not in accordance with the dictionary or original meaning).

For example, if you look up the word "faggot", you'll discover it can refer to a bundle of sticks or twigs, especially to be used as fuel. But I'll tell you one thing: if you and I ever go camping together and are ready to build a fire, I won't tell you I'm going out to pick up a faggot. A faggot can also be a kind of jacket. When the weather turns cold, though, if you and a friend approach me wearing jackets, I won't tell you: "That's a nice-looking faggot you've got there." I can promise you that much right now.

About a year or so ago I read a letter to the editor of a mainstream [read: left-wing] newspaper wherein the writer described himself as a conservative Republican who was pro-abortion. If the anti-abortion position is not such a quintessential position that, without it, no one could be a true conservative, then I suppose I don't know what "conservative" really means.

A recent editorial in a far-right newspaper tried to make a distinction  [In] his book...the rabid leftist Dallas A. Blanchard tried to say something nice about me; but I don't feel too bad about it, because it was due to a misunderstanding between "conservatives" and "populists". The paper was asserting its editorial policies were populist and implying that conservatives are relatively moderate. To tell the truth, even the mainstream media has taken that inclination recently viewing "conservatives" as relative moderates.

They now refer to those who are even further from them than
conservatives as "the Christian-right" or "the religious-right".
Now let's deal with the right-wing/left-wing thing. If you've read
previous issues of TBR, you've surely noticed how often this column derisively refers to left-wingers. You rightfully concluded the term was being slung around as an insult. But you would have been incorrect to assume that, by flogging the left-wing so often, I was implying myself to be a right-winger. With leftists in control, "right-wing" might be the most confusing term of all.

When and where did these terms originate? I don't have documentation but have read or heard a legend, somewhere, that in the early days of the French Revolution the two factions held town meetings in a church to try to talk out and resolve the issues. The "enlightened" secular humanists sat together on the left and the Christians on the right. Perhaps the church building even had two wings, thus the "wing" part of the terms.

When the leftists gained control of the media they naturally used
the term "right-wing" as an insult to such and such persons and
organizations. And if they called you a right-wing extremist, it was
their way of calling you the absolute scum of the earth, and trying to be somewhat polite about it.

That's not why I stopped calling myself a right-winger. Far from
being bothered, I like it when the media "insults" me. Far from
taking it as an insult, I consider it an honor. I'd be ashamed if the
left-wing ever said anything nice about me. I'd wonder where I went
wrong, and think: "Gee, don't they think I'm a fanatic anymore?
Don't they hate me as much as they used to?"

On page 313 of his book, Religious Violence and Abortion, the rabid leftist Dallas A. Blanchard tried to say something nice about me; but I don't feel too bad about it, because it was due to a misunderstanding.

The reason I stopped claiming to be right-wing is because the
media started applying nuances to the term which could cause
confusion and misunderstanding. "Right-wing" can now mean
any number of things, some of which are ambiguous or incompatible with one another.

The media calls the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, etc., "right-wing
extremists." I renounce white supremism and anti-Semitism. But
if you merely call yourself a right-winger, you might be identified,
even if mistakenly, with one of these factions.

The way the left-wing uses the term can change over a period of
time. Leftists are a very confused people. They will not hesitate to
re-adapt the meaning of a word from an older definition which they themselves had previously established! This can be confusing to normal people like us. As noted earlier, they have recently introduced these new buzz words - "Christian-right" and "Religious-right". Some of the individuals they hang these new tags on are relatively nice and moderate. Take, for examples, Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. Any of the specific individuals or groups they now call "the Christian-right" would surely renounce white supremism and anti-Semitism. In this way the leftists have, unwittingly, sort of "sanitized" the term right-wing.  So maybe it's okay, now, if you want to call me a right-winger. But wait a minute! Then people might think I'm a relative moderate. So let's just keep saying I'm a fundamentalist and an absolutist.

Question: What is a fundamentalist?

Answer: An evangelical with an attitude.

"Fundamentalism" is another one of those left-wing buzz words.

There may be some fine theological distinction between fundamentalists and evangelicals, but leftists have their own political ideas of what these things mean. [Note: warning: If you, the reader, are a friend of this column and you consider yourself an evangelical, please do not take offense at me, personally, for what appears below. I will be speaking not from my own point of view but from a leftist perspective. Not being a theology expert, for all I know, I might be an evangelical, theologically, myself.]

The leftists' distinction between evangelicals and fundamentalists
is based on how firmly you believe in the Bible and how literally
you interpret it:

Evangelicals believe some of the Bible is not true or that it doesn't
really mean what it says. Fundamentalists, on the other hand,
proclaim the entire Good Book to be true; and you better believe it, pal.

Evangelicals carry little Bibles. Fundamentalists carry big Bibles.

The Evangelical carries his Bible politely. The Fundamentalist,
on the other hand, openly waves his Bible at you (perhaps menacingly). He may or may not be smiling. Evangelicals always smile.

Evangelicals are embarrassed by the harsh, true parts of the Bible;
appreciating only the nice, true parts. Fundamentalists delight equally in all parts of God's sacred Word. Since Evangelicals are embarrassed by much of the Bible (and consider much of the remainder irrelevant in these modern times) they will quote only a few select verses. While they quote the Bible, they pat it gently. On the other hand, while a Fundamentalist quotes the Bible, he holds it firmly in one hand, and thumps it violently with the other. Fundamentalists carry sturdy, leather-bound Bibles. They have very hairy arms and sloping foreheads.

[J.B. note: boy, oh, boy, I just thought of something! There are some leftists on our mailing list, including some "mainstream" media moguls. They probably wish that they had written these things! Well, listen up, you leftists: if you want to quote from my parody of your view of us Fundamentalists, go ahead. If so, all you have to do to avoid my filing a lawsuit against you is to make clear to your readers that I did not mean to be saying these things as if I were speaking for myself. I waspretending to speak for you. I made that clear. You understood. So get it right, or leave it alone.]

While the media often sneers at "fundamentalists", you'll rarely catch them mentioning "evangelicals". It's because the media doesn't have anything bad to say about Evangelicals.

In a nutshell, my claim to being a Fundamentalist is as much a
political statement as an assertion that I'm a Bible-believing Christian. When our Lord spoke of "the world" in the fifteenth chapter of the gospel of St. John, He wasn't talking about the planet. He was speaking of worldly people ( un-Godly people ) leftists. In verses 18-19, He said:  "If the world hate you, ye know it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

Reprobate left-wingers hate our Lord, so I want them to hate me,
too. During a time of war, it isn't always right for Christians to always be nice to everybody. Every generation of Christians before the Vietnam War believed that, during a time of war, it was Un-Christian to always be nice to everybody. Just ask Richard the Lionhearted (the Great Crusades).

Ask George Washington (The Revolutionary War). Ask Teddy Roosevelt (the Spanish-American War) or Sergeant York (World War 1). Ask my dad (W.W.II). Ask Paul Hill (the Abortion War).

So, during this time of terrible national crisis, I'm not satisfied with merely proclaiming my Christianity to the Lord's (and our) enemies on the left. My emphasis that I'm a fundamentalist Christian is a way of drawing a line in the sand, challenging the reprobates, and encouraging them to hate me even more. [oooo! He's a...a...(gasp!)...a fun-da-MEN-tal-ist!]

Why do some Christians today seem to dread that the media and
other leftists might hate them? Especially at a time like this? I'll never figure that out. If, as a Christian, the world doesn't hate you, you might have a serious problem on your hands. Try it. You'll like it. Just wave your biggest Bible at them (perhaps menacingly). Then shout: "Hey! Hey, you leftist, I'm a fun-da-MEN-tal-ist!" Then thump that Bible violently, and add (loudly) "You hear what I'm telling you? I said I'm a fun-da-MEN-tal-ist! See how hairy my arms are? See how my forehead slopes back? I'm a fun-da-MEN-tal-ist, you gotta problem with that, mac?"

Go ahead, try it. It really gets your blood pumping and makes you
feel so...alive! I'll tell you another thing. They'll treat you with more respect than ever before. Take it from me.

* * *

I'm still writing a book, and it will still be drawn largely from these reports. But not necessarily all of what is published in the separate reports will find its way into the finished book. And there might be a little extra in the book that doesn't appear in these monthly reports. That's not a commercial to sell more books. If you've read all the monthly reports, it wouldn't be worthwhile to buy and read the book, too. I'll be honest with you.

In the finished book there might be matters that would be okay
for the book but that would not be interesting enough to stand
alone as an individual report. Like some personal biographic stuff,
for example.

I'm a mean ol' man, so I might try to make the book slightly nicer
in the hope that more than a few people would read it. Most of my original readers (especially from when Shelley was my publisher) are combat-hardened, old veterans of the Abortion War, so they have not been offended by the severity of these individual reports. But I hope some newcomers who have never made a commitment to hard-core absolutism will read the book, too.

Yet, those of you who like my bluntness need not worry that I'll
sacrifice such essential truths that the book won't have the potential to make a difference.

I don't have any illusions that the book will make me rich or famous. Those things won't happen, and they're not the reason I'm writing the book. I'm writing it in the hope of making a difference, however small or great, in a lukewarm church and in the complexion of the Abortion War itself. If the book has no chance of making a difference in these areas then there will be no sense in publishing it. It won't be that nice. It'll be harsh enough to get the point across: the church is guilty.

I'll tell you another thing. I won't reword or rephrase anything that's previously been published (in the monthly reports) in such a way as to make it more polite. If I can't say it the way I want, I'll just omit that part altogether.

But do you know what concerns me most about the whole thing?
I'm not worried so much about finding people to buy and read the
thing. What concerns me is whether we'll find anyone to sell it in
the first place! I mean - who's going to promote it? You won't find
it on the shelves of Walden's bookstore. And there's no possibility
you'll see a review of it in U.S.A. Today or any other establishment-controlled paper.

Can you imagine prolife moderates like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, or Marlin Maddoux talking about it? I can't.

To be fair with Marlin, his degree of moderation in the abortion
issue is probably as slight as it can be. But my book will be of such unadorned, uncompromising absolutism that it'll be too hard for anyone of even the slightest moderation. After all, the whole purpose of The Brockhoeft Report is to revile even the slightest compromise with abortion and to show the urgency of rejecting all moderation in our attitude towards the babies and their slaughter.

If the public, especially the churchgoing public, knew about the
existence of such a book, perhaps folks would be curious enough
to buy and read it. But how will they ever find out it even exists?
I don't know. Maybe Tex Mars will publish and promote it.

But for the time being, with so few people knowing who I am,
and that I'm writing, it seems kind of silly and grandiose for me to
even think of writing a book for publication. But I'm writing it anyway, because I believe the Lord wants me to. And what have I better to do behind these bars? And so what if it makes only a little difference? I'm not going to say: "No, Lord, it's too much work to justify such a little difference." Besides, if you save one child's life you've made a big difference. All the difference in the world.

So I'll keep writing these monthly columns, and even if they're
never published in book form, I'll feel I did what I was supposed
to do. May the Lord's will be done.

If it wasn't for Dave Leach you wouldn't be reading my story
and commentary. Who else would have the guts to publish such
controversial matter? No one. I write about abortion, and if I'm
going to write something for publication, then the severity of my
language is going to be in proportion to the desperation of the situation. I wouldn't tone down my rhetoric just to make it "suitable" for some nice, polite, moderate lukewarm publisher. If I had to do that I would remain silent. The world is full of nice, polite, moderate, lukewarm, prolife columns, and the movement doesn't need another one. In needs one like this.

If it weren't for Dave, this column would have disappeared a year
ago when Shelley was arrested. Give him credit for some guts. And now he might be a little embarrassed on account of my speaking kindly of him. But at least I'm not making it look like he's the one saying it. (So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Dave.]

Scoffers and Counter-Scoffers

You may have noticed Dave omitted my scoffing from the original. It wasn't the first time I'd wanted to use that word "scoffing" but I chose not to, previously. For to use it would have required a careful, lengthy explanation of the usage. Because scoffing is mentioned in the Book of Proverbs. Scriptures there condemn it. The thing to remember is that these Scriptures were written in the Hebrew language, whereas "scoffer" is an English word. Somehow the Hebrew term was translated "scoffer". In the context it's used in, it seems obvious the Bible is referring to those who scoff at God and His Holy Word, or at righteous reproof. So, on the one hand, far be it from me to dare to re-word the Bible; but it does seem those verses refer to unbelievers, particularly
sarcastic ones. I'm not that kind of scoffer. However, according to
modern English usage I do scoff, big time, at scoffers. So maybe I'm actually a counter-scoffer.

I don't scoff at abortionists. That would be a waste of time, a
waste of good scoffing. No, them I openly revile. My favorite
targets of scoffing are today's superficial, lukewarm church
(in general) and the prolife movement, in particular.

Please remember, we, who refuse to compromise, are not members of the prolife movement. We constitute the new anti-abortion movement. And I'm not being sarcastic on account of how the media calls us all anti-abortionists, nor on account of how nice, moderate prolifers disdain to be called anti-abortionists. I'm sincere. Please don't ever call me a prolifer.

If you don't believe we (for example, Shelley, Paul, you, me, and
many others) are not prolifers, just ask any "true" prolifer. Ask the
women of the "true" prolife movement. Women like Patrick
Mahoney, Randall Terry, Terry Sullivan, and Carol Everett.
They'll tell you we're not prolifers. And they'll be ten times more
emphatic about it than I am.

"They're not prolifers, they killed," says Carol Everett. She was
talking about our people, our friends who execute abortionists!
"They are no part of the prolife movement," said Patrick Mahoney,
immediately after the honorable Paul Hill executed abortionist Britton.  "I'll push them out of the prolife movement," said the disgraceful Terry Sullivan.

We [who justify violence] have worked in cooperation, shoulder-
to-shoulder, with these prolifers [who shun anyone who justifies
violence], employing the same tactics. Who hasn't seen Paul Hill
carrying a picket sign on T.V.? Shelley Shannon carries deep
scars on her body from when she sat, blocking doors, with Operation Rescue, and the police dragged her across concrete pavement, tearing the skin and flesh from her.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my readers who have
written words of encouragement. I'm especially gratified that no
one has accused me of divisiveness or judgmentalism. From the
above quotations you can see from which quarter the divisions
have arisen. Besides how the prolifers have haughtily shunned us,
we have always held our arms out to them. We have always applauded when they saved a child's life. We have always supported and encouraged them in their work and their tactics. Indeed, we even employed "their" tactics, they're our tactics too! We have worked in cooperation, shoulder-to-shoulder, with these prolifers, employing the same tactics. {AGAIN} Who hasn't seen Paul Hill carrying a picket sign on T.V.? Shelley Shannon carries deep scars on her body from when she sat, blocking doors, with Operation Rescue, and the police dragged her across concrete pavement, tearing the skin and flesh from her.

Why do "true" prolifers disdain to be called "antiabortion" and
insist on being called "prolife"? It's because it sounds nicer, and
they think nicer is better - even during a time of war! It's because
of "false stupidity". They believe in a false good image. Somewhat
conversely, and somewhat similarly, the media calls us all
anti-abortionists (rather than prolifers) because of false stupidity.
The media thinks they're putting a bad image on us, but, in reality, it's a false bad image.

What? You've never heard of "false stupidity" before? Don't feel
bad, neither has anyone else. I'd never heard of it before, either,
until discovering it on my own. At that point, never having heard
of it, and so, not knowing what to call it, I coined the term "false
stupidity" myself. When I define and describe it in a future issue
(probably the next one), you'll clearly recognize it (in others),
because you've all seen irrefutable proof of it. You stare it in the
face every day. Most of your friends exhibit false stupidity from
time to time. False stupidity is real (that is, it is not genuine, but
it does observably exist), and it's dangerous )) more dangerous,
by far, than the real thing.

About a week ago I was on the phone with my pastor, the Rev.
Henry Irby. Henry had a letter published in the "C" July, 1994 A.D. issue of Prayer and Action Weekly News, exhorting us to put "A.D." after dates to witness of Jesus.

Henry and I are a couple of eccentrics. It took us a minute or two
to get on the same wave-length. But then, as usual, we were in one accord. Right off the bat I exclaimed "Henry, Henry, why are some of our friends and allies trying to get Bill Clinton impeached?! That's the last thing we want! Bill Clinton is the best president we could have right now! He's the least dangerous enemy to the babies and the best president we've had in decades!"

"In what sense do you mean?" the innocent Henry asked.
When I explained it to him, Henry shot back: "I'm in favor of
higher taxes, much higher. I'd like to see a 95% tax rate. That
would be good for this country."

You must understand... Henry and I weren't kidding around. We
were serious. I want Bill Clinton in the White House in order to help the American people, and especially the prolifers, to overcome their false stupidity. It is absolutely essential that we stop pretending like we're even stupider than we really are! Otherwise, our nation will surely perish. Clinton is helping us overcome our false stupidity.  Henry wants higher taxes, even 95%, under the theory that it would help the American people overcome "false zealotry". He's probably right.

Well, folks, thanks for reading through another lengthy report. I'll
elaborate further on these matters in the next issue. Dave wants this manuscript in the mail tonight, so I have just a few minutes to drop it in the box. Till the next time, I'm still...



P.S. Remember that joke about a conservative being a liberal who's been mugged? That wasn't original, but it's so good I wanted to let you give me credit for it for a little while. I don't remember who said it first.
