Yet ANOTHER FIB Raid on a Citizen

The article below is far too sketchy on details, but on the surface, the tale is chilling. Here’s what really bothers me:

Ryan-Marie, who is a homeschool mother, explained the SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents swarmed their property with around 15 vehicles at 7:05 a.m. this morning. Having quickly surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

The federal crime the suspect is accused of:

Mark was arrested and appeared in federal court, charged with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, “which makes it a federal crime to use force with the intent to injure, intimidate, and interfere with anyone because that person is a provider of reproductive health care.”

The details as stated in the article is he pushed a 72 year-old man to the ground as he attempted to escort patients.

First things first, if this man did what he is accused of, I have absolutely no problem seeing him punished appropriately. Furthermore I would immediately condemn his actions. No question. That said, does the actions described above warrant 25-30 agents in 15 vehicles showing up at his home at 7:05 AM, rifles ready (no doubt at least some FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS among them) to arrest him? HELL NO!

For goodness sake, at worst this guy is a bully. IF that is true, what does that make the feds? Are they that scared of this dude? From the picture I saw he is about as scary was Ppppppp-piglet. Maybe they just didn’t have anything else to do that day. In that case, I’d say that field office is horrendously overstaffed. Think how much us taxpayers would save if we reduced the sizes of just that office to three agents. It’s not just agent salaries either, but they wouldn’t need all that plush office space either. Seems to me they’d do just fine in a double-wide converted into an office. I’d let them keep the kitchen intact. Or was this raid yet another one of their intimidation tactics? Okay, fine, then stop it. Just stop it. You guys are law enforcement, not thugs. Do your job, enforce the law. Leave the gorilla work to the mob.

These stories are getting tiresome. Grow up guys or I’ll insist we take your toys away.

THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I KNOW: Dozens of FBI Agents Raid Home of Catholic Pro-Life Activist as Children Scream in Terror

Fear Not

Too often these days I find myself shaking my head at one news story or another, wondering how crazy can the world get? Then things get even more nuts.

New York Congressman Lee Zeldin is now running for Governor of that state. The current Governor Kathy Hocul is looking to be elected for the first time. She became Governor when Andrew Cuomo stepped down. From what I’ve seen, I wouldn’t trust her to run a cash register, much less the State of New York. Exhibit number one: Lee Zeldin’s political ad. It consists of several video clips of actual crimes. The airwaves are rampant with such clips. Violent crime is rampant. What do the globalists focus on? “Gun violence”. Never mind that the so-called “gun violence” they decry is already 100% illegal and nearly 100% committed by those who cannot legally own a gun, their “solution” is always the same: render law-abiding citizens defenseless.

Meanwhile the globalists have more than doubled the IRS and are arming a substantial number of them to intimidate and yes, even, use deadly force against citizens accused of “not paying their fair share”. Don’t take my word for it. See for yourself. Here is a screenshot of an IRS recruiting ad.

Whether the IRS has a current ad stating this or not is irrelevant. They posted this and no doubt they are indeed actively searching for individuals “willing to use deadly force”. Meanwhile the FIBs, the DoinJ, and other three-letter apparatchiks continue to seek, harass and arrest those who dare disagree with The Regime. Reports range from “visits” from the feds for daring to speak at a school board meeting to having one’s personal property confiscated (Mike Lindell comes to mind), to outright arrests, and more.

A couple days ago, I posted a story about a man shot dead while attending his father’s funeral. His “crime” was not made clear at the time, however even if he was as dangerous as one heading a major drug cartel, I’d find it hard to believe everyone attending the funeral deserved to be put in the line of fire. Not to mention, that while my knowledge of law and legal procedures are quite limited, I cannot shake the idea that arresting someone should not included an instant death sentence. Something seems to be missing from my concept of “due process”.

Meanwhile, the so-called President of the United States (Joe Biden and yes, I still question the legitimacy of his election.) spoke in Philadelphia a short time ago. Against an ominous blood red background he denounced “MAGA Republicans”.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,”

Indeed, there seems to be a concerted effort to isolate, condemn and exterminate anyone who does not toe the approved line.

SHOULD we be afraid? No. Not at all.

Psalms 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

Consider Daniel. He opposed his government. He did not protest. He did not bear arms against those who plotted against and oppressed him. Daniel prayed. At that time, the simple act of praying to the One True God was punishable by death. Yet Daniel openly and unashamedly did just that. What did it get him? He was thrown into a den of lions. We all know what happened. His God, the God of Abraham, the God of Issac and the God and Father of the yet unborn Jesus, the Messiah saved Daniel. Daniel emerged from the lion’s den untouched and unscathed.

But, you say, I am not Daniel! What if I don’t have the faith Daniel had? Okay, so tell me… what is the worst anyone can do to you?

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

I do not fear men. In fact, I refuse to live in fear. This does not mean I go about asking for trouble but neither will I shrink from those who try to intimidate me, either from a distance via lame speeches or with a knock (or a breech with a flash bang) on my door at 2 AM. Nor will I fear moving about in public as I conduct my day to day activities. Lindell was accosted while at a Hardees. While I’m no fan, his choice of eating establishment is not yet a crime. Roger Stone was taken away from Reagan National Airport in handcuffs. And as mentioned above Jason Arnie Owens was unceremoniously shot dead at his father’s funeral.

Instead, stand up and declare the truth of God’s Word. Live your life in the face of fearful circumstances. I am not at all advocating taking unnecessary chances. Today, I read an account of a woman who got caught up in a firefight between rival gang members while picking up her child at a public park. She was later told she was smack dab in the middle of a known gang area. One saying comes to mind, “if you are going someplace where you think you’ll need a gun, don’t go there.” Good advice. DO keep an eye on your surroundings anywhere you go. While it is still not illegal to defend yourself – at least in theory in most places – best practices suggest avoiding those circumstances where you have no choice when possible.

It is often noted that, as Christians, our actions carry more weight than our words. Thus it is at least as important to live our faith rather than simply proclaim it. In order to do this we must be confident in what we believe. Confidence comes from knowledge and knowledge from study and experience.

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

In the verse above, the word “faith” means “believing”. Once again, I urge you to read scripture often, at least daily. You need not memorize, just read it. While I’ve been reading my bible for decades, I can only quote a handful of passages. While those that can are impressive, I don’t believe it is required in order to hold forth the truth. Keep in mind the apostles and others in the early church did not have our “New Testament” to refer to. Instead they spoke the truth as they understood it.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Fear not. While it may appear the world is coming apart at the seams, I can assure you, when the end does come, there will be no doubt. Some of us look for the Rapture to occur before this end. While I also believe Jesus will come for his saints before he comes with his saints, it does not matter to me whether I understand these passages correctly or not. For all I know my Lord Jesus will tarry yet another 50 years or more, making my understanding moot. Tomorrow will take care of itself. My best course is to live each day as best I can. What about you?

Going Green Rewards – Raided by the Cops

Senior Asian couple in California gets $136,000 settlement for alleged illegal home raids

Now considering it’s California, you might think “going green” means growing weed. Apparently, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco thought the same thing.  How chilling can it get?

The sheriff monitors power residents’ power usage.

This elderly couple (ages 67 and 75 in 2021) was using too little in the Sheriff’s judgement.

So he initiates a raid. It seems the couple had two homes. The sheriff searched the first after Ms. Hwang granted permission but refused permission to search their second home. Bianco searched anyway. He didn’t have a warrant for either search.

This is almost as bad as the Kansas family that was raided for growing tomatoes.

Case of Bungled Pot Raid on Tomato-Loving Family Revived Anew

Why “almost”? In this second case cops staked out a local garden supplier. At least they had a bare bones claim of “probable cause”. In the CA case, I don’t see where it is anybody’s business how much power a citizen uses. Period. Too much, too little, bite me. As long as the bill is paid MYOB.

The bottom line is, unless WE the People put a stop to such nonsense, the “authorities” will continue to generate any excuse to harass and intimidate citizens.

The Plans and Plots of the Regime

Isolate and Exterminate
Commentary: The Regime’s ‘Operation MAGA Fascist’ Gains Ground

The gist of this article unveils the Regime’s continuing efforts to single out and neutralize if not outright destroy any opposition.

Julie Kelly is THE ace journalist covering the J6 Political Prisoners. She also covers other important stories. She is well worth following. Near the end of the above article she states:

“Either way, the goal is to stoke a political uprising in much the same way these interests accomplished what they wanted on January 6, 2021. It follows a familiar pattern of name-calling, false accusations, and blatant cover-ups in the reckless pursuit of power.”

Keep in mind the ultimate goal of the globalists is a one-world government. This cannot happen as long as the United States of America remains sovereign.

Threatening Violence

Last night I saw a segment about CBS’ Face the Nation where they cite “research” suggesting some 13 million Trump supporters “could” support a move to use violence to reinstate Mr. Trump as President.

Today, there are 13 million individuals, the equivalent, I should say, of 13 million individuals who support the use of force to restore Donald Trump to the presidency.

This is total and utter nonsense. Again, it is part of their agenda to do everything possible to discredit, isolate and ultimately eliminate anyone who dares embrace our Constitutional values.

Certainly there are those on both sides who lust for violence. What are the real numbers? I don’t know. What I do know is a great majority of us are law abiding – so much so that those of us on the side of supporting Trump endure far more than we should. And by “enduring” I mean that rather than rallying in protest (something I firmly believe is both ineffective and unnecessary because we citizens ARE the bosses.) or otherwise acting out like so many on the left, we patiently wait and look for the law of the land to work.  Those who are violent or otherwise break laws, we expect them to be brought to justice according to due process – even those who claim to be on our side.

Amnesty from the AFT?

ATF Requests Funding for Pistol Brace Amnesty & Registration Program

I don’t know what is worse, the idea that the ATF somewhere, somehow as acquired some mystical powers to “grant amnesty” to any poor slob who purchased an entirely legal (even under their usurped “authoritative” scrutiny) pistol brace, or this legal idiot’s apparent attempts to pave the way for law abiding citizens to avoid the trap laid out by this boondoggle.

No. Just no. The very legislation the ATF relies upon to expand their purview is, in itself, blatantly unconstitutional. Where in the Second Amendment does it say “shall not be infringed except… when Congress decides otherwise”?

While I never bought into the whole “pistol brace” fad or any of the other “cool stuff” like bump stocks, etc. that evokes those mystical ATF powers, it is only a matter of time before something I own will suddenly become disfavored, unless, of course, I do my duty as a citizen, confess my sins and pay pound of flesh to the ATF.  No matter what you own, be it a firearm or a slingshot, the authoritarians want to know. It’s for your safety, don’t you know.

Hey Joe Bobo and y’all here’s a clue: WE are the government. You work for US. Bite me.

New Category: Treasures from Web Travels.

I thought I’d try a new thing and post a few articles I find from different places I visit.

Yeah, I know, I thought of that brilliant idea all by my self. But it is new to me, okay? I’ll comment from time to time on some of these, and I’ll try to work up some more interesting headlines as well. Enjoy!

Family wants answers after pallbearer killed by officers

IT IS TIME FOR COMMONE SENSE FEDERAL AGENT CONTROL

Really guys? Have you been watching too many episodes of Justified? NOT a class act. Okay, it is a class act. Is this how our federal agents are trained to “apprehend” suspects? Let’s start from the beginning. First, there’s this thing called due process. That means you arrest those suspected of committing crimes, then they are tried and then sentenced. It is YOUR job to to the arresting part. Leave the death sentences to someone else. Got it?

If I’m reading this right, Judge Oldham just demolished Big Tech censorship.

Okay, so I never said it exactly like that but I’m saying it now.

And just like that, the media frenzy diverts attention from the real issues of ILLEGAL ALIENS flooding our nation to whine about the atrocity of 50 ILLEGAL ALIENS flown to Martha’s Vineyard. Not only did they totally redact the point but they tried to turn it around on Governor DeSantis.

Shocking Revelation on Fox News

On September 16, 2022, Pete Hegseth, sitting in for Jesse Waters, boldly proclaimed the base cause of our nation’s ills and what we must do to get back on track. In short, we have turned our back on God. If we are to reclaim our nation we must first seek out God Almighty. I was amazed to see this pronounced on one of the most popular shows on cable television. I still have my differences with Fox News but I am grateful for this message.

For anyone who has visited this blog before, there’s a good chance you’ve seen firsthand how much I am in agreement with Mr. Hegseth. Of course, my very premise that our very nation, our Constitutional Republic itself is a gift from God Almighty is where I prefer to begin any dialogue.

Among Christians, we like to say “God is in control”. Indeed He is but we often stop short of this admission particularly when circumstances are going against us. While we might thank God for Donald Trump, do we also thank Him for Joe Biden? Believe me when I tell you, this last is not at all easy for me either. Think hard on this… is God only in control when things are good? Of course not. God doesn’t suddenly “lose control”. Even if Joe Biden ultimately succeeds in utterly destroying this nation, giving away our sovereignty to the United Nations or China, God will still be in control. Where does that leave us?

Consider the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah in the time of the prophet Jeremiah. At this time, God’s chosen people were split into two separate kingdoms. Both were ruled by evil kings. God was in control. Jeremiah and other prophets of his time warned God’s people to repent of their sins and turn back to God or their kingdoms would fall to Babylon. Neither kingdom heeded his words. Instead Jeremiah was imprisoned for his message. Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple built by Solomon, As prophesied, he took both kingdoms captive. What was their sin?

Mostly, they turned their back on God. Certainly they were guilty of a wide range of trespasses but the one straw that broke the camel’s back was they worshiped other gods. He likened it to someone divorced his wife and she went and married another:

Jeremiah 3:1 They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD.

Still, God said, even though His people did worse than that, He would still forgive them. Time and time again, God pleaded with His people to return to Him. All would be forgiven. Time and time again, they rejected him. Compare this with the parable Jesus related, often referred to as the prodigal son (though it may be better referred to as the forgiving father.):

Luke 15:11 He said, “A certain man had two sons.

12 The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of your property.’ He divided his livelihood between them.

Read the record for yourself if need be but the story goes that the son returned intending to beg to be granted the humble place of a servant. His father would not hear of that but instead slew the fatted calf and threw a party to welcome him home.

If Israel and Judah had returned to God, He would have welcomed them also. He said as much. Nebuchadnezzar would not have invaded and conquered these kingdoms. All would have turned out far differently. How so? We cannot know. Only God would know what could have been. Similarly, if Israel had not rejected Jesus, if they had taken the Messiah to heart and welcomed him instead of calling for him to be crucified, this world would be very different today. Speaking of today, let us fast forward to our present condition.

As Pete Hegseth stated in his segment, our nation was formed by godly men who clearly believed this nation would prosper as long as we followed God. He showed a chart where just one generation, a bit more than twenty years ago, over 90% claimed to be Christians. Today, this number has dropped to 67%. Hegseth cites a Pew Research study. While I personally doubt very much that 90% of our nation claimed Christ in my lifetime, I’ll go with this as the actual numbers are not all that relevant. More important is the fact that so many of our nation has turned from God and from His Christ. I’ve talked with more than one Christian who admits they don’t believe in God’s Word, the Bible. How can this be? Have they not read what God says about his own Word?

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

It is simple, either one believes the above verses or they don’t. If the verses above are true then God’s Word is true. After that, the only problem we face is discerning between God’s Word as He originally gave it and that which was corrupted by man. While this is no easy task, well more than enough of God’s Word remains clear so we can accept Jesus as Lord and live a decent life.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Pete Hegseth called for a revival. I agree. If our nation is to be saved, WE must be saved from the wrath to come. WE must turn to God Almighty. WE must become the prodigal sons and daughters. For those of us who have accepted Jesus as Lord and believe God has raised him from the dead, we must speak out. We must boldly proclaim the truth so others may hear and believe.

If you do not believe God’s Word is true, I suggest you start reading and studying it for yourself. For those who find the King James English too intimidating, I suggest trying the World English Bible (WEB). Not only is it easier to read but it is known to be quite accurate as to how God’s Word is rendered. My own preference for the KJV stems from my own longtime use of this version and the fact that the Strong’s numbering system makes for far easier study of individual words. All my study materials are linked to the KJV. That said, I very much like the WEB version and I often refer to it when I want to see a passage rendered a bit differently.

Siblings in Christ, I urge you to actively seek out our Heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus the Messiah. Study God’s Word. Fellowship with other believers. Forsake your sins. Ask God for guidance and forgiveness regularly. Speak the truth with all boldness.

One other note on Pete Hegseth’s segment. Pete made a point to say he asked for forgiveness every day. He admitted that, though he has accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior and he is saved from the coming wrath, he is far from perfect. This confession raised my assessment of the man to new heights. Plainly speaking, I found myself nodding my head in agreement. It is a struggle we all have as Christians. Those on the outside looking in seem to expect us to be above reproach in all matters. This is rarely if ever true, certainly not in my own case. I too need to come before God several times daily to ask for forgiveness though I accepted Christ more than four decades ago. One might think someone like myself has this whole “Christianity thing” down by now. They are wrong. I’m still learning, still growing, still fighting my sinful nature. I will likely continue my own struggles until the day I die. Do not let your sins stand before you and our Heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus. Jesus died for our sins and God raised him for our justification. He made us righteous so we may stand before Him without any sense of sin, guilt, or condemnation. I still find this hard to wrap my head around but I know this is true because God says so. More than that He said:

Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

God IS in control. HE “chose us before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before him in love”. Accept that. Believe it. Stand on it. Then go forth and tell the world.
