Psalms 127:1 This is what I read this AM

My regular reading – this is what came up. Make of it what you will.

Psalms 127:1   Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
2  It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
3  Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4  As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

PS: Here the word “LORD” is from the Hebrew “Jehovah” – more accurately translated YHWH. This is the proper name for our Heavenly Father. WE are His children.

According to E.W. Bullinger’s Companion Bible “they shall speak with the enemies in the gate” indicates the children negotiating or fighting.

Tomorrow I read Psalms 128. I have not memorized this passage nor do I remember what it says. It may be just as relevant or it may not.

God bless,

Your Mother Knew… and So Do You!

Every family has secrets. Some come out. Some stay hidden forever. No matter what the secret, chances are Mom knew. She may not know what. She may not have any details but she knew something was wrong. She might ignore it. She might deny it, but she knows something is amiss. Fast forward to the 2020 election.

We are all “Moms”. We know this election stinks – no matter what side of the political spectrum you side with. Maybe you want to hide your head in the sand. It won’t work. The stink pervades everything. Start with the very basis of the voting. First the decree that “everyone” has the right to vote. This is dishonest. No, “everyone” does NOT have a say in our nation’s business. The right to vote is conferred with citizenship. Period. This is the very basis of our constitutional republic. In almost every other instance I will defend the right of someone to refuse to present “papers”. When it comes to voting – it is essential ONLY citizens are voting and thus must present proof of citizenship in the form of a valid voter id.

As for the claim require a voter id somehow discriminates against the poor in our nation – get real. The poorest in our nation qualify for financial help from our governments – local, state and federal. While I personally feel this, in itself, is entirely beyond the framework of our constitution, the simple fact is, our governments take from those who produce and gives to others. In the process, they must identify themselves. In other words – the poorest in our nation are by no means without the means to produce a valid government id. Sorry but that “argument” holds no water.

Of course the radicals on the left go even further by claiming everyone has a right to vote regardless of citizenship. This is absurd. They may as well claim the oceans are really made of soda pop. Of course one must not drink the ocean with a straw but otherwise… My point, for those who need the word “cat” spelled out is, anyone can claim anything but claims do not make anything so.

The bottom line is: not only did the cheaters cheat and cheat big – but they open defy even any sense of the rule of law. This is to the point where they even deny any wrongdoing at all. All of a sudden they are acting like there is no possible way there could be any funny stuff about this election. This after nearly four years of “investigating Russian collusion”. Why the sudden turn about? We all know why – because their man came out on top, that’s why. So what do we do about it?

At the time of this writing the state of California has certified their election, giving Joe Biden enough electoral votes to win the presidency. Is that it then? From my understanding, no, as legal challenges concerning the validity of certain electoral votes remain. I expect the Supreme Court will eventually weigh in. That said, as of now, it appears Biden and Harris could be inaugurated in January 2021. What then?

There’s been talk of war on both sides. The left has been waging guerrilla warfare for years now, lately in the form of attacks on police, riots and other violence upon our nation’s citizens. Their propaganda war has been in full force for an even longer period of time – decades, actually. For the most part, those of us on the right have taken to open and legal means to elicit changes – voting, truly peaceful protests and court challenges, among other things. While one could point to a handful of instances attributed to
right-wing actors, those are not only far and few between but also quickly denounced by nearly everyone on both sides of the issue. You cannot say the same for violence perpetrated on the left. Is this what our nation will resort to? At least one observer believes we are already involved in a civil war. His points are well taken. The problem with this is nobody will win such a conflict. Either the left will destroy our nation to erect an new openly communist state or the right will devastate the land in an effort to save it. It is a no-win situation. Is there an alternative? I believe there is only one way.

We Christians must repent and turn to God Almighty and His Son, our Lord Jesus the Messiah, for the salvation of our nation. It is the only way. Scoff if you will, but in doing so, you will be denying the Lord that bought you with his precious blood. Our nation is in this current sorry state because we turned to the world and subsequently turned our backs to God.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

We see these things happening before our very eyes! I say to you, you can either renounce this evil or you will be counted with those who do such things – whether or not you join them. Isaiah was not finished:

Isaiah 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

Do not forget this was prophesy specifically unto Israel and not onto those of us in this Grace Administration. Even so, can you be so confident and believe you are immune? Seriously? Look around you!

Verse 24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust

Is this not happening before our eyes? Do you not see our nation crumbling? LOOK around you! God Almighty will not protect this nation simply because some of us who claim Christ as Savior remain here! Look at China, Russia, Venezuela, Taiwan, Iran – the list goes on and on. If we want our nation saved – if we want to reclaim the blessings He bestowed upon us – we MUST ASK!

James 4:2 …ye have not, because ye ask not.

Simply asking is not enough – consider the context of the above verse:

James 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

There is more to this than these two verses. I urge you to read James in its entirety. Here are a couple more highlights.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

Ask yourself… what will war bring us other than a broken and destroyed nation? Would you rather our land be restored? Those who promulgate evil yearn for our destruction. This is not speculation – they have said as much over and over again. Their minions have literally burned large parts of our nation’s cities. This is the path they would lead us on. We must resist but our resistance must be Godly if it is to succeed.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

As Christians, in this nation and all over the world, we’ve turned away from God Almighty and turned to our own lusts. Many no longer believe God can or will step in. We’ve walked so far away from God, many no longer believe God has the power to change the course of their own lives, much less the entire nation. Many do not believe God parted the Red Sea, brought down the walls of Jericho or raised the dead. If God Almighty cannot raise the dead then did He then not raise Jesus from the dead?

1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

I know there are many among us who believe. It is you whom I now call upon to turn to God in prayer. Pray for His deliverance. Pray for Almighty God to step in to save our nation. Repent of whatever secret sins you’ve been hanging on to and ask for forgiveness. You know He will forgive you. Our nation can be restored but it will not happen by taking arms.

One more admonition – do not think just because I quote the “Old Testament” so frequently, these words have no application today. As I have shown, the state of our nation and the world speaks loudly. However there remains other indications of my words. Below are just two songs written by modern artists. One of these – Rick Pino – proceeds his song with what is described as a word of prophesy. The Old Testament proof of a prophet was whether his words came true – 100%.

 

God bless,

Is Psalm 94 Prophetic of today?

Judge for yourself.

Psalms 94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.

2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?

4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.

6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.

19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

Sunday Scripture – Beware Those Who Mock God Almighty!

To my brethren in Christ,

I urge you to pray for this nation, not for God’s mercy, not for God’s judgement, but for God’s Will for us! We need to ask forgiveness for our part in where we are today as a nation. For remaining silent as the righteous are condemned while those dwell in inquiry not only escape their due but are exalted.

Now more from Isaiah 5:

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

Also consider Psalm 92

Psalms 92:1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:

2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.

9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.

12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

 

God bless,

Andy

Right to Bear Arms – Will It Survive Current US Atmosphere

Right to Bear Arms – Will It Survive Current US Atmosphere

As gun owners, we always feel on the defensive when it comes to our second amendment rights. We are used to the barrage of attacks that come our way, and we are used to standing up to them. So far, our rights mostly remain intact. However, it is still hard to refrain from imagining what the future may bring.

Pushback

There has been a consistent feeling among many on the left that the US is behind the times when it comes to gun control. They look at other countries in Europe with lower homicide rates and attribute that to their more restrictive gun policies. Many gun owners will be aware that the breakdown of gun deaths reveals a different story. Roughly 60% of gun deaths in the US come from suicide. In this case, it is not guns that are the issue. The issue is people who are suffering enough to consider suicide. When it comes to murder, gun deaths are split between everything from police shootings to gang violence. On these issues, gun control rarely offers a solution, and the “scary black rifles” the media tends to go after do not make up much of the weapons used in shooting deaths.

However, unless people are willing to look into these numbers, the argument is convincing. People have empathy, and they want to see violence end. Simply banning firearms sounds like an easy way to curb gun deaths to many. A cursory glance at the platforms of many politicians, including the Democratic nominee Joe Biden, shows that banning certain types of firearms and limiting gun rights in other ways is near the top of their platforms.

Beyond the federal level, there is always the possibility of individual states going the way of California on firearms. As unconstitutional as it may be, restricting gun rights is always a bill and an executive signing away.

Not All Doom and Gloom

For a start, there are still millions of Americans who care deeply about their gun rights

However, the politicization of gun rights restricts its value. All Americans have the rights to defend themselves. No group of people does not deserve to be protected. There has been evidence lately that many left -leaning Americans have been changing their minds on gun control. Data collected over the past year shows a large percentage of gun buyers have been first-time gun buyers.

This seems to largely be a response to the many crises of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic started the year off with a bang. Toilet paper flew of the shelves. Meat became hard to find. Shelves in stores were no longer guaranteed to have fresh vegetables. This scared people, and not without reason. People were faced with a situation in which food and other basic necessities were not guaranteed. Throw in the uncertainty of how the pandemic would play out, and people were drawn to gun stores. Some were worried about potential rioting over food. Some were interested in being able to hunt for themselves. Many Asians felt that they needed to be able to defend themselves with the bigotry they had directed towards them over the virus’ place of origin. Then, the tragic death of George Floyd sparked protests and riots across the country. Many business owners and other people felt the need to gain a way to protect themselves. At the same time, the slogan “armed minorities are harder to oppress” rang true for many.

Through all the tragedy of 2020, many found a new appreciation for the Second Amendment. According to a study by the NSSF, roughly 67% of gun buyers this year were purchasing a gun for the first time. In most years, this number hovers around 25%. Along with that, around 40% of them were women, and around 58% of the first-time gun buyers were African American. Many of them bought modern sporting rifles, like AR-15s, and many bought shotguns and handguns built for home defense to keep them and those they love protected. These are groups which, demographically, tend to lean left and tend to be underrepresented among gun owners. This signals a shift that may be larger than is currently seen among these groups. For a start, anytime the right to bear arms is expressed by more Americans, the country is helped. On the political side, the gun rights side may be growing its numbers.

Will It Survive?

It is impossible to predict the future. Will another mass shooting spur a reactionary movement to ban firearms? Will the influx of new gun owners change the way the Democratic votership views firearms? Will things simply remain stable for the foreseeable future? These all seem possible, but the US has a rich history of enfranchising people with rights. The optimistic side suggests that the outlook for the Second Amendment may be positive in the coming years.

What He Said…

What I cannot tell you is whether I’ve finally realized how much I agree with what John Whitehead has been saying all along or if we both think along the same lines. No doubt he says it better. Funny thing about this is he quotes late comedian George Carlin whose succinct words mirrors both of ours.  This article sums it up. The bottom line? We are owned.

Here is John…

The Election Has Already Been Hijacked and the Winner Decided: ‘We the People’ Lose

 

 

SCORE For Team Biden!

From an unnamed source…

In what can only be described as a brilliant political move as the 2020 Presidential Race heats up… Team Biden announced welcoming the illustrious Jane Fonda to their fold. Ms. Fonda, affectionately known as “Hanoi Jane” by her beloved military admirers – is best known by them for stepping out of her safe acting career to encourage peace and harmony among the combatants in Vietnam. Fonda bravely crossed the line into North Vietnam at the height of the conflict to demonstrate how the communists are truly loved – especially by those in the entertainment industry.

Fonda set an example for all as her smiling face was photographed atop an artillery gun used to blast U.S. Troops to pieces. Her unselfish act showed the world how she truly felt about America and those who fought for her right to openly demonstrate her beliefs.

After Vietnam, she married Tom “those laws are for them, not for us” Hayden – a strong supporter of reasonable gun legislation designed to gut that pesky Second Amendment. He will always be remembered for his herculean efforts to strip law-biding citizens of their unfounded beliefs of their right to keep and bear arms.

Team Biden – a strong critic of President Trump’s disdain for anything military has stepped up to show how much they care about our men and women in service while embracing the ideals of Fonda and her untiring stance against those disgusting fools who call themselves “patriots”. “Few people come so close to matching the foundations of our platform as Jane Fonda – her iconic photograph sitting on that artillery epitomizes the very core of our campaign.” stated an unnamed source.

While some may see this as a risky gambit, savvy politicos find themselves either nodding their heads in agreement or shaking them in wonder. The only words this unbiased author can muster is “unparalleled political genius”. It is now obvious that despite rumors about “Slo Mo Joe” showing signs of senility or serious brain malfunction, Joe Biden, in one fell swoop, has proven he is in firm control of his faculties and this campaign.

 

Will The Controllers Steal This Election? Nahhhhh!

Looking back at the last Presidential election and the dirty tricks they pulled then.  Democratic Operative Scott Foval bragged they’ve been doing this for 50 years. I’d say he was being modest.

From American Thinker:

How Undercover Journalism Turned the Tide in 2016

Video about 2 minutes of actual ballot box stuffing in 2016 (or so they say)

Of course now all this has been exposed it won’t happen again… right?

If we want a bona-fide election, we citizens need to insist voting be made at the polls and then we should make it clear we WILL stand watch over polling places to thwart such shenanigans.

Bluntly put, I see neither of these things happening but one can dream.

 

Election: November 2020. Have the Controllers Already Won?

This is what I keep asking myself. Yesterday my wife asked me if we should get “our mail-in ballots”. While my response was I will vote in person if at all possible, it led to a discussion about whether we will be “allowed” to vote at the polls. My thought was if mail-in was made mandatory then mail-in ballots would need to be sent automatically to all registered voters. She thinks we will have to initiate the mail-in process. Who’s correct? My bigger question is: Will it even matter? Think about this.

Two Scenarios

The first scenario has Trump winning and another four years of controller sponsored chaos. Already the controllers and their sycophants, such as Hillary Clinton, are pushing the idea of not accepting a Trump win… again. (yes, Hillary, face it, you are nothing more than a useful idiot and your usefulness is now relegated to whatever name recognition you can muster.) Remember four years ago when Hillary raised this question about whether Trump would accept the results? This was when she had the presidency in the bag… lady.

Now it is quite reasonable to assume Trump will win a fair election so the controllers are preparing to once again reject the will of the people. Last time they ignored the electoral college and pointed to the “popular vote”. What they accomplished in my mind at least was demonstrating the true value of the electoral college. Even further, I believe we citizens should reject the “winner take all” doctrine of some states and insist the electors be free to vote their conscience. Period. Instead the controllers are pushing in the opposite direction towards “democracy” i.e. mob rule, and away from our democratic republic. Already much massive voter fraud at the polls has been uncovered in the last election. I suspect this is how the controllers finally seized Virginia. Mail-in voting could well skew the election towards the controllers. More on that in a moment.

Back to a Trump “win”. If he does indeed win, the controllers are prepared to ramp up the chaos. We can expect more riots and more resistance by both those controllers in office and in the streets led by professional agitators. Yes. More. We’ve seen this already. They are not going to stop. Unless WE citizens put a stop to this, they will continue to do all they can to demolish our society. They have nothing to lose so they will continue until we stop them or surrender. The way things are going this could well mean a win for the controllers.

Scenario Two: A Biden Victory

We can all decry the terrible things Biden’s puppet masters would do under his nose. Do not be alarmed at this as he would likely approve if he had the metal capacity to do so. What I suspect is the controllers anticipate something other than a peaceful return of the reins of government to their grimy hands. They want war. How did I conclude this?

First we have every indication of the controllers intention to brazenly steal this election. We all know it. Few of us can fathom anyone giving a single thought to their vote pulling the lever for this clown. The only intelligible words he has spoken have been gaffs. “I am J… uh, I… uh, can I get a glass of ice cream?” (Yes, I made that up but…) The only conclusion we can come to is IF Biden wins, it will be because of a massive effort of the controllers to steal the election. For all I know they may even start bragging about it.

We, as citizens will have two choices – accept or reject the results. Again, either choice is a win for the controllers.

In the unlikely event that we reject a Biden victory, we will then be forced to take to the streets in protest. Unlike our counterparts, our protests will be peaceful. At least until the controllers roll out the troops and start shooting us where we stand. They may allow their current crews of agitators to “counter protest”, raining violence in citizens until they are “forced” to step in and stop “our” violent rioting. They will continue until we are either eliminated or subdued.

And if we accept a Biden “win”? They will keep pushing. They will do all they can to further strip the republic and solidify their control. Again, their intention is to eliminate or subdue anyone who resists bowing to their authority. Never mind said authority was stolen. Never mind their total disregard for the founding document of our nation – our constitution. Control is all that matters.

The bottom line is the controllers are making every effort to back the citizens of this nation into a corner so we are forced to either submit to their stolen authority or die. It matters not what corner we end up in so long as they can force check and mate. What choice do we have? Does this mean we cannot win? Have the controllers won already? No. They have not.

There is an alternative. It is right in front of us – right under our own noses. Even better, this alternative is peaceful and entirely legal. As a matter of fact this alternative embraces the very law of our land. What is this alternative?

It is reclaiming our constitutional republic. This entails more than mere “voting”. The controllers have zero authority not granted by us citizens – WE THE PEOPLE. What they have done so successfully is replace our republican form of government with their political “two-party” system so that no matter what party wins, the controllers remain in control. It is sad to realize this but the controllers corrupted our republic from the very beginning. I do not believe this was the intent at first. When our nation was in infancy, even in the womb – so to speak, it was necessary for strong men to lead the way. Thus nobody was taught the principles of republican government in the early days or since. At least if anyone was taught these things, said teachings were lost. It is now time to understand and deploy a true republic.

The strength of the controllers is centralization. Controllers rule from the top down and a central seat of power is necessary to accomplish this. They gain wealth and power via their ability to extract wealth from citizens and rule us through laws and regulations. Is it any wonder why their response to any situation is always more government?

As citizens of a constitutional republic WE have absolute authority to govern ourselves. It is the law of the land. We do this by electing representatives. In doing so we delegate to them some of our authority. What authority? The authority to enact and enforce laws. This authority is limited – first by the law of the land, the constitution itself. As citizens, WE also have the authority to overrule our representatives at ANY TIME. Our only restraint is the law of the land… the constitution. We do have the authority to amend, change the constitution itself, but this is necessarily a difficult and arduous process. This is intentional because it would be foolish to make such changes without sound deliberation. Even so, certain changes have been made, such as the 17th Amendment, allowing Senators to be elected by popular vote – i.e. mob rule, rather than elected by the State Legislatures. The original concept was a safeguard to preserve state’s rights and allow ALL the people of a state to have a voice.

A constitutional republic is the basis for a decentralized government. WE retain the power. We retain OUR authority by voicing and voting our will locally. The controllers have usurped our authority by consolidating and centralizing power and authority. While the political “two-party” system is one of their primary tools, their control now reaches far beyond this. They have entrenched themselves in the very government itself – the deep state – and within the military-industrial complex. As is obvious to anyone truly aware – the controllers almost entirely own the media propaganda machine as well as social media. That said, the power the controllers wield and the authority they have assumed is a smokescreen. They can only hold on to it as long as WE LET THEM!

What can I do? I’m only one little guy?

After all if you can’t fight city hall, how can you take on the United States Government? This is the beauty of our constitutional republic! As individuals we are essentially powerless. Yes, one man or woman could gather together a militia unit or even a group resembling a small army. They could gather weapons, legitimately or not (bear with me here), they could train and become an effective fighting force. And they could easily be squashed like a bug. Sure, one could tout the Afgan resistance or even the IRA but what, really would any of this truly accomplish? My point is while arms are indeed a valid and necessary component – such can only be a last resort because invoking such tactics basically destroys the very thing we wish to preserve – our nation. This is NOT how to restore our nation!

So… What?

If you want to see a real-life example of how a republic should work – consider the VCDL – the Virginia Citizens Defense League. This small group focuses only on Second Amendment Issues. They led the 2A Sanctuary movement in Virginia in late 2019 and early 2020. EVERY county and city government was forced to vote on whether or not to declare themselves a 2A Sanctuary and an overwhelming majority – over 95% did just that! The real power in this movement was the turnout by citizens in support of 2A Sanctuaries. Such action would not have been necessary if not for the illegal and treasonous actions by the Governor and State Legislature. Virginians are not done yet either. This is just the beginning. However the actions of the citizens in Virginia demonstrate how a republic should operate.

Citizens did NOT protest in the streets. We did NOT just flood representatives with emails letters and faxes. We did NOT simply write letters to editors. WE SHOWED UP at our county board meetings in force and demanded action! While the message sent to our state AND federal representatives was largely ignored – the message was clear. Now… we can NOT let up!

While this is just a fleeting thought – it does seem strange our nation was hit by a pandemic just after citizens in Virginia flexed our authoritative muscles. Coincidence? Possibly, even probably BUT – this pandemic surely put the skids on citizen action in our own communities! Yet somehow “peaceful protests” – riots are perfectly acceptable. Think about that.

The bottom line is WE CITIZENS wield true authority and power in this nation. It IS the LAW OF THE LAND. Those sitting in plush accommodations paid for by US consider themselves the “ruling class”. Such is an abomination. ANY “representative” or party “official” or anyone else for that matter who ascribes themselves to this “ruling class” should be immediately be forced to resign in shame.

Enough is enough. It is time for the citizens of this nation to reclaim our rightful place in this nation as self-governing individuals who directly elect representatives to serve our interests. My own interest is a return to a limited government by scaling back government intrusion into our lives.

Have the controllers won already? Yes and no. If WE THE PEOPLE, the citizens of this nation do nothing, we might as well bow down to our rulers now. This is something I am not willing to do. If I and I alone standing against these forces of evil am swept away, so be it. To paraphrase Emiliano Zapata… “I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees”. How about you? Will you stand up for what is rightfully yours or kneel to tyranny?

Update for Sat July 25

For the one and a half persons who may have noticed, I have not been posting much lately. This is due to some changes in my personal life. Nothing dramatic but time consuming. In addition to this I simply have not felt particularly “inspired” lately.

Long story short, as my minuscule contribution to the abundance of thought about current events seems largely unnoticed, I doubt if even this post is necessary. In any case, I’ll post when I get the urge and not before… except maybe for tomorrow’s video.

Meanwhile I removed Liberty Hosting and will no longer offer cheap hosting. Strangely enough conservative blogs still regularly get dumped by our elite betters who run the free hosting schemes. But ya know what? Anyone who is too cheap to cough up one buck a month for hosting rather deserves what they get when the rug is pulled out. They say there is a price to pay for freedom. I have to agree.

By the way, if anyone cares, Patriotnewswire.net is next on the chopping block. It was an interesting experiment that turned out to be hugely unwanted. The domain registration is up  in another month. I do not see the point in renewing it.

That’s all for now.

God bless,

The Full Force and Fury of the Leftist Radicals – WHAT? Me Worry?

Do not be fooled – they are communists… pure unadulterated Marxists. They are here in our nation and bent on taking it down. None of this is new. None of this should surprise anyone. What may be a shock is the sudden realization that today, right here in the United States of America the Marxists have unleashed their “Tet Offensive” against us – aided and abetted by our “own” representatives and corporate America. Strong words you say? Yes.

My words are fully document able – not by any “extensive research” on my part. Not at all. ALL I needed to come to this conclusion was read the headlines, a few articles by established and well-trusted authors and THINK.

One such article is published on The American Spectator. Many of the details laid out in this article have already been heavily established by other well-respected publishers. Such as “Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrice Cullors repeatedly says ‘We are trained Marxists‘.” If this is the first time you’ve seen this quote, you need to crawl out from under that rock. Another reference in this article is a video interview published long ago by G. Edward Griffin with a Soviet defector and former KGB operative named Yuri Bezmenov.

I am familiar enough with this interview that I didn’t need to see it again. I know exactly what he said and how relevant his words are today. Maybe this quote will ring familiar to some of you:

“[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. […] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.”

― Yuri Bezmenov

Yeah. That’s right – ol’ Yuri is the guy who made the phrase “useful idiots” famous. Is that bell ringing yet? So why is this relevant today? Look around you. This from Seattle:

Seattle held ‘segregated’ training session on ‘undoing whiteness,’ encouraged staffers to forfeit ‘guaranteed physical safety’

This is not an isolated concept by any means. Surely you’ve heard repeated calls for “reparations” for decedents of former slaves.

So… should you be worried? No. Not in my opinion. Here’s why..

My trust is in God Almighty. In an ideal situation Christians in this nation would turn to Him – individually and in groups and such would put a stop to all this in very short order. Even if I am the “only one” turning to God – I assure you I am not – God is faithful to honor my pleas. So what if the worst happens and I end up somewhere I really do not want to be? I remain faithful. Consider the journey of Joseph. He was sold as a slave. He bounced back again and again until eventually he was counted only second to Pharaoh himself. Sometimes things looked pretty bleak but Joseph never lost sight of God. The same goes for Daniel. And David. Scripture is filled with examples of this lesson. Focus on God.

Lately I’ve been reading Psalm 37… a LOT. It is an amazing, inspiring Psalm. No doubt you’ve stumbled across parts of it yourself such as…

“Psalms 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth;”

While this is a great quote, when taken in context, it is even better:

Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

WOW! This entire Psalm bursts with such thoughts! Right on the heels of this passage there is another shouting out to my ears:

Psalms 37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

Look closely at Verse 15 “Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.”

Have I not said nearly the same thing? Give credit and glory to God, as it is from HIS Word where anything worthwhile I say comes from. How else can I so confidently say the house of cards the leftist radicals have built MUST come tumbling down?! The underlying principles come from God Almighty and because they are principles they must apply in every relevant circumstance.

We must be and remain faithful. God will not turn His back on us but if we turn our back on Him, He may withhold help from us. This is why I do not worry. This is why I will not fear.

Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

God bless,

Andy

The Heart of Last Sunday’s Home Service

We’ve been have church in our home for some years now – long before this current pandemic nonsense. The reasons are varied but for us, for now, it just makes sense. Sometimes I teach, more often lately, I’ve had “guest speakers” via videos teaching. This last Sunday was a bit different. I found the two videos below and strongly felt the need to share it. I still do. This is powerful stuff.

 

While the response to this family’s need was widespread, it began from a local church community. From what I can see from this church is is patterned much like one of my favorite churches my family ever attended. The appear to be a tight-knit group with a central commonality – Christ.

Here is the song that emerged from the story above:

God bless,
