FEDS Gone WILD – The Bank Caper

I know, I know, I’ve been pretty hard on  our government employees lately, particularly the FIB’s. It’s only because every day more evidence comes out indicating they are corrupt as hell. Granted, one could make a case they’ve never been the squeaky clean upstanding shining-lights-on-the-hilltop examples of what a federal law enforcement employee should be, but more and more I’m convinced they are rotten to the core.

Never mind stories about ol HH being a cross-dressing homosexual. Never mind the tales of agents collecting dirt on anybody they could and then blackmailing them to give them a free ride anytime, anywhere. Never mind the more recent revelations about “Operation Crossfire”, top officials lying to Congress and even FISA judges. Never mind the vindication of General Mike Flynn who was destroyed. Actually, DO mind it, ALL of it. Now how about the latest bit?

No, I’m not talking about the raid on Mark Houck’s  residence again – even though the link points to another article reveling Houck had already agreed to come in voluntarily. Not to mention the allegations were already dismissed in court. Double jeopardy anyone? No, this latest involves what I can only call a bank heist. (Okay, I stole that idea.)

Here’s the story as told in The Federalist:

FBI Seized $86 Million In Raid On Innocent Americans’ Safe Boxes After Duping Judge For Warrant

For those of you with short attention spans (WHY you read my articles I’ll NEVER understand 🙂 or short on time, they actually raided a private vault company. The owners pled guilty to a conspiracy to launder drug money. However the contents of a reported 1400 safe deposit boxes were seized totaling, well the headline says it: $86 Million. Now get this:

The “reasoning” the Feds gave went something like this: “Well, if they’ve got a lot of cash they are probably doing something illegal.” I don’t know about you but this sort of “justification” sends chills down my spine. Let’s face it, this is an an assumption of guilt rather than the legal standard, the LAW of the LAND, the presumption of innocence.

This is exactly why I object unequivocally to ALL “asset forfeiture” schemes.  In EVERY CASE guilt is assumed. Change my mind. The very “argument” for this con game goes like this: “these drug lords (it all started with the ‘war on drugs’ can get off scott free because they have all this illegally gotten drug money and can afford the best lawyers”, etc. and so on.

How many ways is this wrong? First, when it comes to some criminals, I get it. Everybody just knows they are guilty. The problem is, it’s not what anyone knows but what can be proven in a court of law. Yeah, it’s a bitch but that is the price for living in a free country. Now for my second, and possibly more serious objection:

They are rich so they can buy an acquittal, or the equivalent. This  damns our entire justice system. It is an outright admission that justice is NOT blind. Basically the rule of thumb is, you get the justice you can afford. This is not always true but ideally, it should never be true. We are so far from this ideal that I can safely say it is mostly true.

This needs to end. All of it. Lopsided justice is doomed to be with us for a while. It is not something that can be fixed easily. On the other hand, our rogue employees on the government tit can be dealt with. They just need to stop. The rules are plain enough. A search warrant needs probable cause. The standards and parameters are clearly defined. There is no need for any government employee to descend on most American homes with such overwhelming force as they have on so many, including former President Trump’s residence. If any agency truly believes they must, they had better  have some damn good evidence to support them and their actions need to be under heavy scrutiny. No more will an “oops!” justify outrageous actions. ALL federal employees and elected representatives need to be held accountable for their actions. Any so-called “exemptions” or other kinds of free passes need to be declared null and void. You’ve had your fun at our expense. The bill has come due.

Civil War II – Because We Can’t Vote Our Way Out of This – Oh REALLY? PART 1

If you landed here without first viewing part one, you can find it here. There  I confront the current discourse gaining steam in our nation, i.e. “we must have a civil war because we have no other choice.” Bunk. In part two below, I make my case on how we can peacefully exert our rights and duty as citizens to reclaim our nation.

Civil War II – Because We Can’t Vote Our Way Out of This – Oh REALLY? PART 2

The Myth of America

We all grew up being fed a pack of lies, as did our parents and their parents before them. When did all this deception start? At this point, I’m not convinced anyone can say for sure. Nor do I think it really matters. Let me ask you, if we could sniff out a trail leading to one individual who started us all on this false path to our nation’s ills, what then? Go find his grave and stomp on it? Dig up his bones and burn them? Don’t get upset ladies, almost assuredly the lies began with a man. In today’s world the “what” and the “how” is far more important than the “who” or the “when” so I’ll get to those right off.

The “how and what” is pretty simply really. The roots of this deception, this con game are our esteemed political parties. In particular, we can lay blame directly on our “two-party system” itself. Take a step back and look. Power in our nation, i.e. the authority to make laws and extract money from citizens has bounced from one party to another for over a century. While one party has dominated for decades, it really doesn’t matter whether they prevailed or the other party rose to the top. In order to consolidate and maintain power, either party has one and only one tool available – legislation. There is rarely little, if any, power to be gained by repealing laws. Thus to survive, to thrive, any and I do mean ANY political party must expand government authority. It follows that government authority can only be expanded at the expense of us citizens. For government to receive they must take our liberty and/or our wealth. Usually they take both.

The first deception is our system of government is based on a two-party system and thus making for a stable republic. As with most con games, this is partly true. For the most part our republic is somewhat (or has been) stable. This is due to the fact that both parties have the same agenda, to grow government. Thus it never matters which party is currently in power. They all want the same thing – more government.

The second deception occurs when they promote the idea that we citizens choose who represents us. Not only are our choices severely limited but most of those in office don’t represent their constituents at all! Early on in our history, savvy operators figured out they could put people in office to vote for what was then called “internal improvements”. Today they are more often called “government programs”. The scam works like this: some “problem” is identified and brought to public attention. Eventually a “solution” is proposed to “fix” the problem. Legislation is passed. Money, citizens’ money, is extracted to pay for the “solution”. Progress is made. What happens to the money? Well, here’s the thing. It always just so happens that those savvy operators are in a position to provide whatever is needed to implement the “solution”. They get the money and, of course, support those politicians who support the “solutions”. Money changes hands. Always. And it is always our money. Have you ever wondered how a lowly politician can retire a millionaire after a career dedicated to “public service”? Huh.

The third deception is the biggest deception of all. The politicians prime the money pumps by tossing pennies to us citizens. Just think of all those tax refunds people anxiously await every year. Refunds. As is giving back what was ours to begin with. Now, the political con artists have take this a step further. They play Robin Hood in a manner of speaking. They take from the middle class and give to the poor. Genius, really. Consider, those among the poorest, often the least educated in our nation who actually vote, well whom do you think they’ll cast their ballot for? That nasty fellow who never does anything for anyone or that nice gal who cares so much for the poor? The bottom line is the political grifters first gain a foothold, then solidify their power base by using our own money against us. To add insult to injury they inundate us with pleas to “contribute” to their reelection campaigns so they can continue to do the “good work” that they do.

It’s Time to End the Deceptions

Our Constitutional Republic is a gift from God Almighty. The two-party system is the man-made syringe used to inject the poison of politics – the very politics killing our nation today. Nowhere in our Constitution is the concept of political parties mentioned. Today, it is easy to see why. There is no point in blaming one party over another. Had the other party become dominant we would now face a different version of the corrupt government now standing before us.

This deception did not happen by accident. Just as the serpent deceived Eve in the garden, he has deceived us and in the process he’s absconded with much. I’ll stop far short of saying he has stolen our liberties, our God-given rights. The serpent, the devil, God’s adversary, cannot do that. Rather he’s obscured them, hid them, in an effort to make us believe they no longer exist. Of course this is nonsense.

This serpent did not stop at corrupting our Republic. He has infiltrated every aspect of our society and culture. Why else would the very existence of God be denied in every corner? Why else would even our spiritual leaders deny the truth of God’s Word, even to the point of denying the veracity of scripture itself? The attacks are brutal and on every front. What can we do? We can take a page from General Anthony McAuliffe:

“Men, we are surrounded by the enemy. We have the greatest opportunity ever presented an army. We can attack in any direction.”

We need not feel overwhelmed. Our enemy may have us surrounded but Almighty God not only stands between us and them but He also surrounds them! We only need to look to God for deliverance.

You’ve seen the horror movies where someone creates a monster they cannot control. We’ve done as much with our nation. The good news is, the framework for our nation remains mostly intact. God has not abandoned us. We have abandoned God. Therefore our first duty is to turn to God asking Him to deliver us.

Our enemy is evil, not stupid. Thus he has worked very hard to separate us from God and keep us separated. These attacks are intensifying. One only has to look around us to see this. God’s truth is first questioned. “Did He really say that?”. Then His truth is denied. “That can’t be true.” Finally, His very existence is renounced. “Nobody believes in those fables anymore!”.

Romans 1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.

Today, man puts his faith in “science”, at least when it is convenient. They seem to forget God created all natural laws and thus true science cannot deny God.

Genesis 1:27 God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them. God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will join with his wife, and they will be one flesh.

Today we are swamped with countless “genders”. Transgenderism is all the rage. For all the huffing and puffing, they cannot change the science because the science is undeniable. Science can “transform” a man into a being that resembles a woman or a woman that resembles a man but such is as far as science can go. What of the other 157 (and counting) genders? Well, science seems to have its hands full just trying to negotiate the two defined in God’s Word.

Our nation will not, can not stand without God. Nor can we continue to exclude God Almighty from our lives. Rather, we need to recognize God’s gift of our Constitutional Republic and diligently seek out how God intended this gift be used to glorify Him. As with all of God’s gifts, He does not make this task difficult. God is everywhere and available at anytime. The first step in all of this is to simply go to God, not once or twice but continuously. Turning to God is not a one time thing. It’s not a “Sunday thing”, it is a constant thing.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Ephesians 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Yes, we can take our nation back and we certainly can vote our way out of this mess but we cannot succeed without God. The globalists know this. It is exactly why they go all out to banish God from our society. They’ve even infiltrated our churches and diluted His message in an effort to render God and His people ineffective. To top it all off, they’ve used our own freedoms against us and now they’ve done an about face trying to scam us again into believing nothing short of a Civil War will make things right. Who wants a Civil War? The globalists want it. It is their shortest path to total control either by weakening our Constitutional Republic or by assuming total control with a victory.

Deny them their triumph. Go to God. Speak the truth. Do your duty as a citizen by uniting to reclaim your local boards and sheriff’s office. Take your turn as a representative. Hold those who represent us accountable and be accountable yourself. We can do this.



I just opened this from the VDCL (Virginia Citizens Defense League). They are the premier gun rights group here in Virginia. I’ll post the entire message below.

I received this from member John G. These instructions are for a Republican. Similar instructions would be for a Democrat:

You can sign up to be an elections officer at https:apps.elections.virginia.gov/OnlineForms/OfficerofElection

To be considered for this election you must apply by 9/30.

You can go ahead and sign up now for future elections. Once accepted you can serve for 2 years. You can be an Election Officer only in the county where you vote. Virginia law says Republicans are entitled to parity. Currently Republicans only have 385 officers compared to 1,100 trained and ready Democrats. A total of 1,100 is all the registrar requires for the election. We should try to get 550 to a 550 ratio.

Training is required by the county you serve in. You get paid $150 for the day of election. It is a long – day 5:00 a.m. until after the polls close at 7:00 P.M.

If you want to poll watch, sign up at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4bacf28a2fbc16-early.

You have to have a letter of authorization from your local Republican committee. When you arrive to poll watch you will have to give them a copy of your authorization letter so make several copies. Some training is required for poll watching check with your local Republican committee.

For questions, call the GOP hotline at 804-600-4809 or email them at help@va.protectthevote.com.

The highlighting is my doing. Note that for election officers Democrats outnumber Republicans nearly 3 to 1. This is appalling. Also note that here in Virginia the only officially recognized parties are Democrat and Republican. I do not know how this works. There are other parties active in the Commonwealth but only those two are “official”, whatever that means.

The bottom line here is we cannot continue to piss and moan about fair and honest elections while refusing to step up and participate. For the record, I’ve already signed up to become an election official in my county. The link to be a poll watcher doesn’t work so I contacted the GOP hotline above via email.

Even better, I noted the email address – “va.protectthevote.com” and followed it. (I highlight right click and select the “Goto” option in the drop down menu. YOU only need to click on the link above if you are a Virginia resident or the link below if  you are from any other state to get to the national web page.

protectthevote.com  I didn’t figure out how to get to any other state specific site but there is a “volunteer” link at the top. Geez, don’t expect me to lead you by the nose guys.

If we REALLY want to make a difference in November and  crush the globalists, we need to come out in force and overwhelm them at the polls. Simply adding another “I Voted” sticker to your collection ain’t gonna do it. We need to show up en masse. We need to diligently watch the polls and take responsibility to ensure this election is honest and fair. Cheaters are like cockroaches – they will scatter when the lights are turned on. It’s time to shine!

This is OUR country. WE are the government. WE need to start acting like it.

Civil War II – Because We Can’t Vote Our Way Out of This – Oh REALLY? PART 1

Well, I got carried away again… or did I? In part one, I confront the current discourse gaining steam in our nation, i.e. “we must have a civil war because we have no other choice.” Bunk. In part two, I make my case on how we can peacefully exert our rights and duty as citizens to reclaim our nation.

Civil War II – Because We Can’t Vote Our Way Out of This – Oh REALLY? PART 1

Time and time again, I’ve heard this. “We can’t vote our way out of this.” Most often this alludes to some sort of violent solution. The most common solution is often referred to as Civil War II. Now wait just a gol darn minute.

First off, I contend that the first “Civil War” was not a civil war at all. The South did not “rise up” in order to overthrow any government. They opted out of the Union and formed their own government. It was an act entirely within their rights. If the first “Civil War” was indeed misrepresented then a Civil War II cannot rightfully be called such. However there is a much simpler reason for negating the idea of a “Civil War” in our Constitutional Republic. We are a nation of sovereign citizens, the idea that we can somehow “overthrow” ourselves is ludicrous. Now if a group of armed individuals descend on our nation’s capital and forcefully take command of our nation, well, that would be an actual insurrection. There is no constitutional provision for such an act and therefore the act itself would naturally be unconstitutional and therefore null and void.

At this point I can see some globalists and their leftist minions gleefully rubbing their hands (or their wrists if you are in Nancy Pelosi’s camp), jumping up and down, and pointing to the events of January 6, 2020. Calm yourselves, little ones. Nothing of the sort happened that day. Get over it. The fact is, your overzealousness in jailing hundreds of citizens for their alleged participation in those events has tainted the tree of justice. Since so many of those citizens have been outright denied due process, among other of their civil rights, it is now evident that none of them can rightfully be held and they should all be set free. I still advocate for reparations granted to them for ruining their lives. This does not mean that the actual perpetrators of the J6 chaos should not be brought to justice. To my knowledge none of the true villains have been charged, much less tried so true justice awaits. Now back to our regularly scheduled essay.

It is sad to say that even among us so-called “conservatives” there are those who can only see a violent ending to the strife we are experiencing today. For the record and lack of a better term, I refer to myself as a “constitutionalist”. Our constitution is the law of our land and thus the foundation of our nation. To date we’ve built erratically upon this foundation and the entire structure is in danger of falling into itself. The good news is, even if this should happen, we still have a sound foundation. It upon this foundation where we citizens must restructure our nation. Many haphazard constructs need to be torn down. If Rube Goldberg ever built a house, it would resemble our nation today. This is the very source of our problems today.

Consider, for a moment, what a “Civil War” would do. It would wreak havoc and destruction. It would bring death. It would destroy the fabric of our nation and could well mark the end of it entirely. Such a war would necessarily and ironically be fought between two camps, both claiming the desire to “save the nation”. One camp would consist of the usurpers, the globalists – those holding power and so-called “authority”. These same elitists have deceived many of our citizens claiming their seats by legitimate and legal means. The other camp would be populated by the dissenters. Those who realize the truth of who the usurpers really are. These citizens have been conned into believing the usurpers hold all the cards save one… violence. Stuck between the two camps are the masses. Most are innocent and confused as to whom to believe. The lies sold to them vary widely as they are custom-fitted to slip easily into their chosen lifestyle.

In the end, the globalists are likely to win no matter what. If they can muster the firepower to overwhelm the patriots then their victory would be outright. More likely there would be an extended conflict much like what the world witnessed in Afghanistan. It would take years. Meanwhile the countryside would be decimated. Should the patriots emerge victorious, either in the short or long term, what then? First note the physical damage to the nation’s infrastructure would likely be extensive. The leaders who would rise up from the ashes would be those who were the most effective battle commanders. Certainly there could be one or a handful of political-type leaders who could step up to take the helm. Great. What would happen next? Would our current constitution be re-established? Elections held? Would we the people demand a new constitution? Or would certain among the victors demand such and expect everyone else to go along? And then maybe we could have more elections? And here we go again. How long before we’d be right back where we started?

We Voted Our Way Into This Mess

Now let me ask you. Why CAN’T we vote our way out of this mess? Isn’t voting how we got into this pickle to begin with? Were not ALL our elected officials voted into office? (Okay, I’ll give you Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and maybe a few others should we really dig into the issue of election frauds.) WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO INSTEAD OF VOTING? Other than elections, we have kings and dictators and anarchy. Right up front, I will say there are those who make a pretty decent case for anarchy or the idea of having no government at all. While this might be attractive in theory, I believe anarchy has inherent flaws just as communism has inherent flaws. In the case of communism, the major flaw lies within the very premise. If everyone enjoys an equal result regardless of any efforts made, most will only put for minimum effort. In short, why work if I can not work and still eat? As for anarchy the major flaw again stems from human nature. There are those among us who naturally tend to assume control. These will rise until they control far more than their own homes. Thus I see some sort of government as necessary to assure the rights of all citizens are equally protected. I have yet to see a more efficient and viable concept than a constitutional republic. The problem with our own, as I see it, is we citizens failed to step up and do our duty to hold those we elect accountable. In short, we fell asleep at the wheel and now the bus is hurtling off a cliff.

If you don’t get anything else out of this essay, get this. We voted our way into this mess. Think about it. The question I’d think would be most on our minds is “HOW”? How did we manage to vote ourselves into this mess. While it is true we citizens have been asleep at the wheel and are indeed ultimately responsible, we had help. Lots and lots of help. Short and sweet – we’ve all been conned. Big time. In our own defense, this con game has been played on us all long before we were born.


They Get It – Managed Dehumanization Article

The gist of this article, as I see it, really says what I’ve been saying all along: the globalists are moving forward with a concerted effort to control our nation. Chances are pretty good, the author, Auron MacIntyre, says it better.

Either way the goal is the same, centralized control of us all. While Mr. MacIntyre’s focus is primarily the US of A, it is easy to see what happens once they’ve got us securely under their thumb. Centralization cannot be complete until everything is controlled from one convenient location.

“Every ruling class needs a way to secure power and justify that power to the masses”

The one term I cringe at is one we all seem to have come to accept: “ruling class”. Hey! This is America… remember? We citizens ARE the ruling class. Why then, do we so readily accept the idea that “the elites” somehow have some right to lord it over us? It’s conditioning folks. We need to shrug it off.

The article is below:

Managed Dehumanization

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.

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

A WV man is gunned down by federal agents at his father’s funeral while his 18 year old son watches.


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.

If I say something, I and I alone am responsible for my words and thus FnBook or Twits-ter cannot and shall not inhibit my ability to put my own foot in my own mouth.

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.
