Virginia 2A Rally Day – What Happened?

Well, short and sweet, an estimated 25,000 people showed up – mostly in support of our God-given, constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms – and a total of (1) person was arrested. All in all it was a successfully peaceful day. The one person who was arrested was because she apparently refused to remove her mask – (or maybe because she eventually complied – I don’ t know). From what pictures I’ve seen, there was more than one person wearing masks so my first question is why is a single arrest not selective enforcement of the law?

So what didn’t happen? None of the dire predictions from either side – someone starting trouble whether as a “white supremacist terrorist” or as a plant from some insidious covert operation came true. And there were a lot of them. Were they all fear mongering? I don’t think so. There was certainly a lot of tension in the air – at least before it all happened. Virginia State Republican Senator Amanda Chase issued a strong statement saying we 2A supporters were being set up. Of course the gov – Ralphie “Blackface” Northam, in what only can be described as in a total panic, declared a “State of Emergency” that is still in effect as I write this o the day after – unless he rescinded it. I doubt if he would want to wipe that egg off his face.

One video of note documented the appearance of two LEO’s on the doorstep of a Virginia citizen. One LEO was from the Capital Police and the other is reported to be a homicide detective from the Virginia State Police. As far as I know there was no homicide to detect so I have no idea why the commonwealth would waste such a resource. The citizen was apparently observed checking out the location around the rally in advance. A lot can be said about all of this but I just wonder how many state resources were spent doing such things. The other thing I wonder is exactly how this man was identified to the extent to have law enforcement show up on his doorstep 100 miles away? He stated such an act was proof we all live in a police state. I am hard-pressed to disagree.

Strangely enough, the FBI “just happened” to arrest three “White Supremacists” before rally day – actually within hours of gov Ralphie’s SoE declaration. Hmmm, how convenient is that? I never did quite discover exactly what they were charged with – planning to attend a public rally? Rumor has it they DID have ammunition after all. Scary stuff, huh boys?

Speaking of “white supremacist terrorists”, I remember one media-type person stating everyone there were “white supremacist terrorists” or some such nonsense. Really? Darling you must have been joking… right? I did not not who it was, though I’m am fairly certain this media-type person likely identified as a “female” – or at least this is how s/he/it came across. Please excuse the pronoun confusion, I just don’t know how to describe genderlike thingys these days.

I must admit, gov Ralphie’s SoE declaration kind of puzzled me. I almost posted something on it at the time but I let it be. Now I will reveal my thoughts, even though they may seem silly in hindsight, but I wanted to suggest to Ralphie that since he was using previous events in Charlottesville as a guide, he might want to reconsider his SoE. He may have been better off banning automobiles and obese women in ill health. After all, it seems to me, considering actual cause of the tragic death there, he would be more sensitive to the real dangers faced by the crowd.

As it stands there were a LOT of legally armed citizens present in Richmond yesterday and, as far as I can determine, not a single shot was fired. Anyone reviewing photos of the event should easily see lots and lots of super scary “assault” rifles. None of them broke loose from their humans to begin spraying the crowd with bullets. It is almost like law-abiding citizens can actually be trusted to abide by laws – even those one happens to either disagree with or believes unconstitutional. Isn’t that something?

The Fall of America – The God Factor

While I didn’t think of the song at the time, “I saw the light” is fitting for the understanding I gained this morning. Was this from God Almighty? You tell me. It was during my bible reading and prayer time. My Old Testament readings are in Proverbs at this time. As you may guess, I’ve read these words countless times over the years. This morning resulted in a moment of astounding clarity.

None of this is groundbreaking. Nothing is new. As a matter of fact, even non-Christians understand this to some degree. Some call it “Karma”, others call it by some other name. In common usage the concept is oft stated in the phrase “what goes around comes around”. While this is the basis of what I understood today, I suddenly realized how shallow my understanding really was. Likely, it is still shallow. This is how deep this principle runs.

The chapter I was reading was Proverbs 21. It is rife with examples of the principle I am about to relate. This is because this principle is far reaching. It is essential to understanding our very lives in relation to our Heavenly Father. In fact, one can gain understanding even if s/he does not believe in any God, because just as the law of gravity works even if you don’t believe in it, such are God’s laws. If you cannot see this, you will remain blind.

The Theory of Everything

Yes, this is borrowed from the world of science, yet my theory has nothing to do with science – at least not directly. Nor is it actually “theory”. A better way of putting is may be it is my understanding of a Godly principle. As such is its likely crude and probably either oversimplified or unnecessarily complicated. The middle ground may be the most challenging for me. In any case here is what I’ve come to understand.

The results we see in our lives are directly related to our actions.

Did I not tell you this was no “great revelation”? How many times have we seen this principle? How many ways has it been stated? Three times in three different ways right here already. So what? So this:

For the most part, God does not interfere. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen, heard, watched Christians and others whine about God punishing them for this or that. How many people see God as this angry dude in the sky just waiting to beat someone down for disobeying him. Really? Do you not see all the totally ungodly stuff going on in the world?

In other words, we don’t need God’s help to turn our lives into crap. It is the one thing we are perfectly capable of doing for ourselves. The principle works just like gravity works. Consider some examples from Proverbs 21…

Proverbs 21:5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.

In short you get what you work for.

Proverbs 21:25 The desire of the slothful killeth him; for his hands refuse to labour.

This says essentially the same thing. There is no need for God to intervene.

Proverbs 21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.

Take it from an expert here, my big mouth gets me into more trouble than I care to think about. What made me realize the importance of this verse was one of the few times when I actually held my tongue and was greatly blessed by my Heavenly Father. He essentially pulled me out of a blazing fire.

The principle of “you reap what you sow” is less obvious when these principles are applied to the larger fields of politics and economics but they still apply. Our nation today is constructed not on the firm foundation of our godly constitution but upon a shaky mishmash of man’s laws, regulations and decrees. The politicians have built a house of cards that cannot stand. Said rules have no constitutional basis and steal our freedom and liberty, enriching the political elite in the meantime.

Economically, things are at least as bleak. Rather than sound monetary policy, the politicians turned over the very coining of money to the bankers. They’ve allowed them to control our financing and buried our nation in an ocean of debt. They’ve spent our wealth and borrowed on our future earnings to spend even more. Recently, a news story revealed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelolsi signed the ridiculous articles on impeachment against President Trump with “pens that look like bullets”. My initial thought was… “Yeah? So?” Then I found out she spent over $1500 on those pens. Where did this money come from? I do not need wait for the Congressional Accounting Office to provide an answer. This story came after another recent one detailing on how Speaker Pelosi ordered a new private jet that seats 200. The reason? Because the jet previously provided for her with citizen dollars could not make the trip home without stopping to refuel. No doubt she was worried she’d have to stop somewhere in “flyover country” where she could be exposed to seeing some commoner. If memory serves correct, the fuel cost alone for one trip is much more than I’ve ever earned in a single year.

Meanwhile the politicians have abandoned solid constitutional principles to strengthen their hold on us subjects, er citizens. The fact is we are no longer citizens in their eyes. Only those who agree with their elitist views have the slightest chance of reaching their ears, and then it is likely pleasant elevator music to them. They hum along but they don’t really listen. Such is reserved for their own kind – other elites. The rest, the dross, the proles – even those in upper and middle management are only their to serve their needs. We are all expendable.

Remember how this essay started? Karma? What goes around comes around? You reap what you sow?

Let us consider another passage from this chapter…

Proverbs 21:3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.

5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.

6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

Two sides are represented here, those who do justice and judgement – the diligent and the wicked – those with lying tongues.

Proverbs 21:10 The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.

11 When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.

12 The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.

Note here, “the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.” Interesting, is it not?

And finally…

Proverbs 21:22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.

Is this meant literally or is it a figure of speech? Often scripture can be taken either or both ways, depending on the context and the situation. In today’s world cities are not surrounded by walls so the idea of literally scaling one is moot.

All of this, along with a great sea of scriptures points to this one principle repeated over and over again. The evil ones will get their due. It is not for us – those who fear God Almighty – to decide the place or the time. This is God’s purview alone.

That said, we can take comfort in the fact that they will not, can not get away with their evil deeds. We must remain faithful. We must turn to our Holy God and His Son, Jesus, and keep our eyes on things above.

Will America fall? Yes. It will. This is prophesied – not by me – but by the very ancient and holy scriptures. The question is not so much “if” as it is “how” and “when”. This I cannot say. I do believe our nation must fall before the end times take place. While my belief does not make it so, I can assure you I do not believe things without foundation. Should more information come to light, I am certainly not above adjusting my beliefs to conform to God’s Truth.

At this point, I believe the fall of our nation will transform it in one of two ways. In one scenario, the controllers could seize total control over us citizens and crush any and all resistance. We are screaming down this path as I write. The other scenario turns the tables on the controllers. We citizens stand up and reclaim our birthright – our constitutional republic. We demand our liberties be restored. We insist upon a return to limited government.

Mind you, this second path sounds dreamy and wonderful. I warn you now, it is not an easy path. We will be required to once again take responsibilty for how our government works. The monstrous central government would dismantling. The faster such happens the more chaos we can expect.

Consider some figures:

Federal, state and local governments employ 22.2 million workers nationwide, equaling 16.7 percent of the U.S. workforce of 132.7 million. (Source)

Cutting this number in half would mean over 11 million instant jobless – adding over 8% to unemployment figures. This does not include those who make their living indirectly from taxpayer dollars. Should our government crumble or simply run out of paper to print more fiat cash… the result would pale many natural disasters.

Granted, I am convinced returning our nation to a truly free economy would yield economic growth beyond imagination. It would literally remove the shackles from us citizens, freeing us to innovate, build and produce, but it would not happen overnight.

No matter what happens, I urge all who read this to turn to our Holy God. Ask for His blessing upon ourselves and our nation. Ask Him to restore our nation, our constitutional republic – our birthright. Look to our Heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus the Messiah for wisdom, guidance and healing for our nation. Let us ask for strong, godly leaders to guide us.

This is another principle detailed in scripture… “Ask and you shall receive. Seek and ye shall find.”

God bless,


A Word of Warning

The more I read about the tempest forming here in Virginia the more I determined I am to turn to my Heavenly Father. He is with me always and not only me… He is with each of us who claim His Son Jesus the Messiah as Lord and Savior and possibly with some who do not yet lay any claim.

In nearly everything I write these days, I urge my brethren in Christ to seek out our Heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus first and foremost. There is indeed war being waged in our nation today. It is a spiritual battle. We cannot prevail without supernatural aid. Ultimately, the controllers cannot and will not prevail, however they can gain ground. They have gained ground. We, as citizens and especially as believers in Christ can stop them but we dare not make the same glaring error the controllers make – failing to seek out our Holy God and His Son Jesus. With this I have a word of warning to those of you who think yourselves “rulers”.

You are not rulers. You are not kings. You are stewards – representatives of us citizens. You are in a position of trust. Almighty God says this of kings.

Proverbs 16:12 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

Our nation is not a monarchy, but consider this: if it is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness, do you think, for one moment, your wickedness will be granted a pass?

Neither does our nation have a throne. Even so our constitutional republic was likewise established by righteousness. The law of this land – our constitution is a righteous document, forged by godly men. It stands as a unique beacon of liberty for all who desire freedom from tyranny.

You have corrupted it. You have stained it. You have trampled it underfoot. This will stop. Repent now. Turn away from your wickedness. Our God is a forgiving God, but woe unto you to do not fear His wrath!

Jeremiah 10:10 But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

Again I remind you of the story in Daniel:

Daniel 5:22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;

23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:

24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written.

25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.

26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.

27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.

The Holy vessel you have debased is our constitution. The unholy gods you worship are the gods of communism – the state, as well as other, ancient and secret gods you worship in your dark places. Do not think these false gods will protect you. Your weapons of war will not protect you. Your unholy decrees will not protect you. You may well bring darkness to this land but your unholy reign will be short-lived and strive with trouble.

You have been warned.

To my brethren in Christ: fear not! God is with us. He will succor us if we only turn to Him and his Holy Son Jesus. While these evil men will fall, chaos need not overcome us. Should we only ask our Heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus the Messiah, they return our nation back into our hands. We need only to claim what is rightfully ours in the name of God.

God bless,


Similarities Between Civil War I and Civil War II

There is a book I’ve been reading… I’ve mentioned it before.

Southern Independence: Why War?: The War to Prevent Southern Independence Paperback – September 29, 2015 by Charles T. Pace 

Yes I am still reading it. For me this is not a book to gloss over. I read some and contemplate what Dr. Pace writes and how it relates to what we face to day in our nation. Do not let the title “Dr.” fool you.

While Dr. Pace is an excellent historian in my view, he is only an amateur historian. His training is as a medical doctor, an ophthalmologist to be exact. I bring this up not to disparage him but to point out his work is not one of professional necessity but of passion. He sought out the truth and now reveals it via his books. History is a fickle mistress. While I find his work to be excellent, I am sure there are hoards of “professional” historians aching to bring his perspective down.

I’ve already pointed out at least one lesson I learned from this book. While slavery was an issue – it was an issue trotted out by the Whig turned Republican Abraham Lincoln to win a presidential nomination and then the presidency itself. One of today’s parallels is gun control.

Dr. Pace points out most of the North didn’t much care about slavery.  As most owned no slaves they did not really understand that world. Today, most of our nation do not understand firearms. As they do not own them, they do not understand our world.  This became clear to me early on in this book, but there is another, more insidious lesson learned just last night.

This lesson has bee brewing for a bit but it all became clear as Dr. Pace describes the events leading to and just after the incident at Fort Sumter. Not only does Pace detail how Lincoln manipulated events leading up this but also his reaction when he first heard the news. Lincoln was exuberant. This was where all his plans came together.

With this and other evidence Dr. Pace makes a startling conclusion: Abraham Lincoln not only manipulated events to start the war he was indifferent to the bloodletting that followed. Think about that.

Now consider what is going on today. What I find it difficult to face is there are people in this world who actually want to kill and destroy their fellow countrymen. I understand there are those who point this out on a regular basis but I’ve had a hard time wrapping my head around the idea. That said, I am convinced time will prove this out. This time is more near than any of us think. It could be years. It could be months. Or it could  be days. I do not know but the danger seems imminent.

On April 4, 1861, history declares the first Civil War began. There were signs leading up to this event. Some even predicted what would happen should South Carolina defend themselves against Lincoln’s warships. Nobody saw the ugly,bloody war to follow.  Are we at a similar juncture in history today? I cannot say for sure. I can only pray for another way.

Meanwhile Lincoln, a man who is today honored and revered, is put forth by Dr. Pace as a man who cared for nothing but power. When he got it, he abused it and our citizens in a way no one has seen before or since. The memorial to the man can be viewed as a King sitting upon his throne. How fitting.

He stripped the states of their sovereignty by denying secession. He destroyed the South in every way possible. He ushered in today’s era of a rogue unlimited government that refuses to answer to the citizens it is supposed to serve.

God help us.

The Last Straw – Our Final Line of Defense

All Eyes are on Virginia – first Richmond, then Virginia’s flyover country. Euphorically it resembles a tennis match. I’ve described the battle we face here and in our nation as a spiritual battle, ultimately between the God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Messiah and the god of this world. Indeed it is. Things look different here on ground level. Putting the spiritual aside… this is what I see.

Unless you are blind or purposely averting your eyes, it should be obvious this nation’s governments have morphed into power-hungry tyrants. In other words 1984 has arrived with a vengeance. On both state and federal level, and often on local levels, they rule with iron fists – stealing our liberty for any purpose whatsoever. Adding insult to injury they force us to pay for the “privilege”. This alone should be enough for us but it is not for the controllers.

Next they add regulatory agencies, allowing them to further strip us of our liberties with little oversight and no constitutional authority. Stories abound about rogue agents making up “rules” on a whim and then changing them in the next round – sometimes just days later. If said rules actually exist, they are subject to the interpretation of whoever claims “authority”. Even this is not the end of the power lust.

Bring on the enforcers. These take on many forms from uniformed police to men in black. Don’t get me wrong, I have mixed feelings about law enforcement. Many do indeed “protect and serve” and do so honorably. However examples abound on every level how police power is abused. Citizens are harassed, even jailed and/or subjected to secret courts. Homes are raided, dogs and citizens shot, property seized or outright stolen. Protest if you will, these incidents are neither isolated nor rare. Of course there is always the justice system… right?

Not so fast… justice? For the most part, justice belongs to those who can afford it. Even then much depends on who you are. Ask Roger Stone or Martha Stewart. Considering the bigger picture there is a reason judges are often described as black-robed thugs. Time and time again they rule against the people. Many courts will go so far as to threaten anyone who speaks of jury nullification with imprisonment. On an empirical level it is easy to see our “justice system” consistently expands government rather than enforce constitutional limitations.

What about elections? I mean, we voted these cretins in, we can vote them out… right? Can we? Recently, Judicial Watch, a strong citizens advocate, charged several states, including Virginia with allowing millions – yes millions – of votes by ineligible “voters”. We’ve all known for decades one of the Democrats’ most notorious constituencies is deceased “voters”. Add to this the fact that citizens have little, if any, say in who runs for office – such things are determined by political bosses, and we must face the reality: we citizens actually have little, if any, control over who “represents” us. How many times have you tried to decide between the lessor of two evils?

The only conclusion I can reach when considering all of these factors is tyranny has won… or at least they have us citizens on the ropes. The only thing left is to strip us of our means of physical self defense. While the controllers have made significant gains in many states, NY, NJ and CA among them, Virginia is seen as a pivotal point. Our commonwealth may very well be the last line of defense – not for our Second Amendment guarantees but for our very status as citizens rather than subjects.

Already the controllers usurped control over nearly every facet of our lives. As I and others repeatedly point out – there is no such thing as a limited government in our nation today. All of our constitutional guarantees of our God-given rights and freedoms have been soundly trashed for decades now. The phrase “it’s a free country isn’t it?” is a total joke. We are subjects, if not slaves in every sense of the word with the exception of no one person holds title to our personage. Even much of our property is subject to periodic payments for the privilege of “owning” it.

If the controllers exert this much power over us when we are armed to the teeth, how bold will they be once they can burst into our homes with no fear of anyone shooting back? Who or what will stop them then? Many suggest the end result will be the act of herding undesirables into cattle cars. Is this really unthinkable? Is mass murder of deplorables beyond comprehension? It has already been proposed. The only thing stopping some is our ability to defend ourselves.

While I can see the importance of current events, I contend we must look beyond this. We must first realize it is unlikely the controllers will back down now. Their dream is within their grasp. While they may put on the skids enough to slow down their ambitions, no concessions will satisfy their lusts. I am just as sure some see the current situation in Richmond as a window of opportunity. It could and should be gone by the next election cycle. What would you do in a case like this?

Either way, we must face certain facts. Second Amendment issues are only part of the picture. As stated in the title it is the final line of defense – the last straw. We need to unload the camel. It is not enough to win on our God-given right to keep and bear arms. Beating back the controlling hoards is a temporary solution at best. We need to stand up as citizens and reclaim the commonwealth and our nation – all of it. We need to insist in a return to a constitutionally limited government. This will not be easy. Just as one cannot lose weight gained over years in a week, we cannot trim government down to constitutional levels overnight, but the longer we wait, the harder the task will be.

God bless,


1984… On Steroids – You Are Being Watched

First my apologies for not posting more often lately. I’ve been working on an exciting project I hope to bring out soon. Actually, one project turned into two but the latter will take more time. Meanwhile, I’ve had little time to write.

Below is a short article on “surveillance capitalism”. The secondary title is even more interesting… “exploiting behavioral data”. I don’t know about you but I more and more personally experience this sort of thing. I search on something, click on something or buy something and I am followed for days and weeks with matching advertising. Some say they’ve had similar experiences in meat space with no online correlation until they’ve purchased something. In other words, you happen to be at a store, buy a candy bar and you are later inundated with candy ads even though it is the only sweet treat you’ve bought in years. Note, this example is not one I’ve ever seen specifically but you get the idea. It gets worse…

By now, if you do not know, our “benevolent betters”, those who work in government – especially those who are paid by us via tax dollars to spy on us, collect massive amounts of data of every kind on us. Personally, I expect any transaction I’ve made in the past several years, every web search, every phone call, email, text or any other message or exchange to be sitting in one or more data files somewhere. Maybe these are cataloged and maybe not. Am I paranoid? I don’t think so. If I am wrong, I am wrong and that would be a good thing. Nor do I spend much time thinking about it. Other than writing a few words now and then, there is really nothing I can do about it at this point so why wring my hands with worry?

That said, there is no reason to file this piece of speculation in my own personal database for future reference. The reason I bring this up is to shine a light in this dark corner for all to see.

Once again, we all need to hold our rogue employees accountable. Given the opportunity, I will do just that. It may not get me anywhere yet but it all adds up to making my own case to return our nation to a limited government that better serves those of us who pay dearly for it.

And now… the article:

What to Expect in Virginia – Sam Culper

In the previous post, I linked to Sam’s Article in The Forward Observer. His insight is solid enough to give his article a post of its own. Please note, any, ANY speculation of future events is likely to be wrong – at least in detail. This doesn’t mean one cannot extrapolate trends to see where they might lead but only a true Godly prophet can prophesy and their standard is 100% accuracy.

So here it is:


Eyes on Virginia 2020 – Here’s what to expect

The UN Hiring Gun Confiscation Specialists?

The UN is Hiring! Specifically the posting is for a “DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER

The article is from Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper – h/t Zerohedge. She includes the actual wording of the UN Job post, just in case this gets “lost”.

Of course she asks if someone is preparing for action in Virginia. Note, I already posted “Wild and Crazy” speculation of just such an idea and essentially laughed it off. Sam Culper of The Forward Observer reviewed some recent news, including the same UN report I saw and called it “Beyond Fake News”. Before this UN posting, I would have agreed. Now I’m beginning to wonder.

Daisy generally posts good stuff. My take on her is she’s got a good head on her shoulders and is not prone to going off the wall.

Here is Daisy.

Here again is a direct link to the UN post:

Proof: The Controller’s Propaganda is Working

From Zerohedge comes an article from Gallup Poll researcher Justin McCarthy.

Overall it is not surprising but it should still alarm. The gist of this is the controller’s stranglehold on media outlets is proving effective. They are turning the tide of public opinion against common sense.

One insight of particular note is how reports of “gun violence” ramps up the public’s desire for more gun control. We all know this but is it sinking in?

This is one reason I focus on liberty and a return to a limited government not just 2a guarantees. Even liberals I talk to who have “nothing against guns” support efforts to strip our liberties because they fail to see where the bottom of this slippery slope. We know.

Here is the article:

May Your New Year Be Interesting…

Yeah, well, so shoot me with a fully-automatic single shot nerf gun… before it’s illegal here in VA, I tend towards non-traditionalism. If memory serves correct, the subject here could be a rephrase of an old Chinese curse… “May you lead an interesting life.” Why is this a curse? Apparently “interesting” is or was considered the antithesis of “peace and tranquility” – the desired standard for a good life.

Well, I’m not so much as invoking a “curse” as much as I am suggesting how I see the current trend going. Lot’s of things going on both here at and elsewhere. One only has to look at some news headlines to ascertain this so I’m not making any psycho, er, psychic predictions here.

I don’t plan on posting much today as I have other things needing attention so I’ll leave you with this:



Returning to the Republic: It All Starts Here

This morning I was inspired by an article by John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute. It starts off from a somewhat dark corner, as it details so many ways our nation has descended into tyranny. However, John is not without hope. If you think about what he says as well as what I’ve been saying, you will soon realize the details are sketchy for a reason… liberty is naturally messy.

The video I posted the other day from Kris Anne Hall reflects this also. Other Christians are taken aback at Kris Anne’s take on liberty because it doesn’t “fit” their doctrine. I’ve got news for my brethren in Christ: my take on liberty won’t likely fit your doctrine either. Liberty is not about my “doctrine”, my beliefs or yours. Liberty is about the freedom to choose what you believe, even if that belief proves to be less than accurate.

Liberty is messy. There are few hard rules because rules are naturally anti-liberty.

Back to Mr. Whitehead – he does offer guidance on how to restore liberty. He can see this happening right here in Virginia and spreading nationwide. The crux of this idea is local action. It should be clear by now – reform will not come from Richmond or Washington. Reform starts here at home.

When I first started this site, on commenter on the original article correctly observed we will not regain liberty just by posting on the internet. His point was we need to build alliances within our communities rather than just trade electrons over wire. I agreed then and I agree now. Of course there is a place for sites like The Liberty News of our stand here in Virginia as well as the burgeoning support nationwide would not be possible without the means to spread the word. This is not the first time, nor the last time technology will demonstrate usefulness, but cyberspace is not the answer – meatspace is. That said…

You can read John Whitehead’s article here:
