After January 20, 2023 – Politics and Other Stuff and a Peek into the Future… Sort of

After January 20, 2023 – Politics and Other Stuff

In case you are wondering, I am not going to chime in much concerning the speculation of Joe Bobo stepping down from office amid this latest classical document scandal. As early as May of 2021 I wondered if he wouldn’t be ousted shortly after completing his second year in office. At the time, my reasoning was whoever was installed after him would potentially have ten years in office as they would be eligible to run for office twice since they stepped in after the two-year mark. Now I’m questioning my previous assertions.

For one thing, Harris is still VP. I can imagine her inaugural speech:

“Thank you for the opportunity being President at this opportune time because it provides me an opportunity to be President and so paves the way for opportunities for other women who are black and who now have more opportunities to be things like president and “cackle, cackle, cackle”.

No, I cannot see her behind the Chief’s desk in the Oval Office. It’s not so much as she comes across as an idiot, I mean, look at Joe, but the key factor is she is not as controllable as the current resident. Controllability is key here. It may be the one thing that pushes Bobo out of the White House. If he continues to become more and more erratic, then he may have to be replaced. Nobody seems to care if he wanders around in netherland as long as they can extract the occasional sound bite or two. Then there’s Harris.

There are those scary times when she almost seems to have a will of her own. In today’s presidential climate that just won’t do. Not to mention she is becoming increasingly famous for her temper. Now she wouldn’t be the first in that respect. Noboma, Nixon, and more recently, Bobo all have been known to lose their tempers. The first two managed to keep a lid on theirs in public. Bobo seems to be loaded with some random defective rounds so one never knows when he may misfire. It could be the handlers fear Harris could lose it in the wrong place and do some real (read irreparable) damage.

As the handlers have not replaced the number two spot, I tend to doubt if Joe is in any real danger of being replaced. His one true asset is what every sane person sees as his liability, i. e. his near total lack of cognizance. The advantage here is he seems almost totally unaware and therefore nearly completely malleable. What control freak would want to give that up? Why then, has this document scandal reared up?

Looking back, it almost seems this was all planned long beforehand and put into play on the day the FIBs raided Donald J. Trumps Mar-a-Lago home. That’s right, ALL of it. What if Trump wasn’t the actual target? True, the implications for damaging Trump was a gleeful bonus for the globalists but what if Biden, not Trump, was the ultimate patsy? Now if this is true then my entire speculation about Bobo NOT being replaced anytime soon goes out the window. Which is it?

I don’t know. I fully expect Harris to be tossed a la Spiro Agnew before Bobo goes down the road. IF she does end up under the media microscope, it would indicate to me she and “The Big Guy” are soon to be ousted. Is it possible the handlers have enough on her to force her to resign on demand? Possible? Yes. Maybe even likely. The investigation of Agnew came to light in February and he was gone by October – this was in 1973 when time passed on a more normal pace. I’ll never be convinced nobody knew Agnew was corrupt long before the investigation started. These days someone could be exposed one day and gone by the late news.

Now one might speculate if the handlers have enough on Harris to force her to resign at will then maybe they have enough to control her otherwise. I’m sure this is a valid consideration. She may be empty-headed but she’s not an empty shell and thus she may have just enough “x factor” to be cause for concern. All of these things may be exactly why Joe’s still in office. The handlers like the near total control of the puppet strings. They are loathe to give that up and there is no one on the horizon who would be so completely under their power. So they will keep him “Weekend-At-Bernie’s” style for as long as they can.

IF Bobo really does have dementia or is similarly afflicted, there will come a point where he is incapable of functioning at all. Before that comes to pass, he will deteriorate to where he will no longer be able to function in public. I’ve stayed away from most news in recent weeks so I’ve not been following his latest gaffs much. I’m dubious as to whether medical science can prop him up much longer.

Either way, I contend it is his controllability that will finally decide his fate in the White House, not the document fiasco. If I am mistaken here, he’ll be gone within two weeks.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE LIBERTY COALTION?

Anyone stopping by recently is sure to notice I’ve mostly moved away from most political commentary, the above excepted. This may or may not be permanent. The fact is I love commenting on the politician spectrum. Even more, I enjoy writing about our Constitutional Republic – especially when it comes to the spiritual aspect – i.e. that our Republic is a God’s gift to us. Furthermore I am convinced our only hope, politically, is to reclaim our God-given birthright – our Constitutionally limited form of self-governance. WE ARE the government. Sadly, I no longer see this coming to pass.

Look – I can see a clear path to reclaiming our government. I’ve stated it outright. Maybe I haven’t communicated it well but it’s all right here in front of us. All we citizens really need to do is step up and take control of our individual counties. Bypass the party systems when possible using write-in votes for solid citizens. With write-in votes the entire electoral system is cut out. Why abandon the party system?

Our national problem really isn’t the government, at least not at the root. The root of our problem is the two-party system. A choice between corrupt Democrats and corrupt Republicans is a choice between two evils. And if one chooses between two evils, one still chooses evil.

This last House vote for Speaker demonstrates the issue dramatically. Ask yourself WHY 200 (+/-) REPUBLICANS voted for RINO McCarthy. Now look at the Senate and ask WHY 18 “REPUBLICAN” Senators voted for the omnibus spending bill. The reason is clear. These POLITICIANS are determined to protect the status quo. The LAST thing any of them want is to be accountable to their constituents – to US.

The truth is MOST Americans, Democrat or Republican, want the same things. We want to live our lives. We want to be safe and happy. We want a return to sanity. We want liberty. What we are offered on both sides of the political spectrum is hysteria and fear. The system is broken. NOT our Constitutional system but the POLITICAL TWO-PARTY system. That is it is broken as far as WE the People are concerned. For the politicians, it’s working like a fine-tuned machine. They keep getting themselves elected, growing government and increasing their personal wealth and power. The politicians don’t work for US they work for their handlers, those sneaky puppet masters hiding in luxurious back rooms of the nation… opulence WE pay for no less.

With all that, we won’t stand up. We won’t do what we need to do to stop the madness. I’ve all but given up. Most people either throw up their hands in surrender or just shake their heads saying, well THAT will never happen when presented with a solution. WE won’t rise to the occasion because YOU won’t rise. Don’t take it personally. Nobody else is either and really, it would only take a comparative handful.

To this end, I’m redirecting my focus. By accepting the fact that there will be no constitutional (read political) solution until the spiritual problem is addressed. God Almighty needs to step in. What will that take?

Know this for starters: God is already in control. Always. There is no “end arounding” Him. What we can do is repent and ask for deliverance and unless we meet Him “halfway”, He will continue to allow our nation to slideinto the mire. Our nation will not be restored without God’s Hand guiding it. And God will not restore a nation of citizens who’ve turned away from Him. So… revival.

Those of us who claim Christ as Lord and Savior need to turn to Christ Jesus and our Heavenly Father. It’s as simple as that. We need to diligently seek God and pray for deliverance. We need to speak the truth of God’s Word. We need to claim territory and establish beachheads.

Again the naysayers will shout “impossible!” “never happen!” but unlike the prospect of citizens rising up and claiming our birthright, this time there’s a difference.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Not only does God’s Word never return onto Him void, but any progress, ANY progress is a victory. So it doesn’t matter what “that other believer” does or does not do. All that matters is what YOU do. You cannot control anyone else. I cannot control anyone else. Thus I do what I can and if nobody else lifts a finger, well, God knows.

While I’m resigned to the idea that no matter what we do, our nation will implode, now and then I see a ray of hope. For instance not long ago, SCOTUS gutted the 50 year-old Lemon v. Kurtzman decision that drove God from public places in America. This was the standard by which nativity scenes were banned from government property, the Ten Commandments exiled from school classrooms, and Bibles were deemed more of a threat in a teacher’s hands than pornography.

This is bigger than overturning Roe vs. Wade yet it got almost zero press. Why? One decision, Roe vs Wade, lends itself to spectacular headlines as battle cries are echoed all over the land. “We Must Fight For Women’s Rights!”. Meanwhile the case bringing Lemon to a sour conclusion for the left, Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, frees citizens nationwide to openly and publicly declare their faith. The last thing the globalists want is for word to get out that the Word can now get out!

How did Kennedy v. Bremerton School District even make it to the Supreme Court? A high school football coach refused to allow the school to forbid him his God-given, Constitutionally guaranteed right pray after games on school grounds. While his story may not be on the epic level of Daniel vs King Darius, the end result could well turn the tide of our nation. Now ask yourself, how important is prayer really?

While I am encouraged by such things, I believe God is showing me a greater need – the need for each of us to personally step up. Coach Kennedy stepped up when he knelt in prayer. Imagine the impact if each of us added just one more prayer in our daily lives. If just one prayer moved a mountain, what if a teacher displayed the Ten Commandments in her classroom? Or one or more verses of scripture? Or placed her bible on her corner desk? What if our nation saw an explosion of such acts all across our country?

My recent posts highlight the world wide war of good vs evil. The outcome has already been decided. The God and Father of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus wins. As I’ve lived to the age where I begin to question how much time I have left on this earth, not to mention the signs of the times, my concern is not with dying but with making the most of whatever time I have left. Bluntly put, I only wish I’d realized this forty or so years ago. No matter. Now I see things in a different light. There is nothing more important than holding forth God’s truth. While this need not be scriptures, God’s Word has opened up to me in ways I’ve never seen before.

For me, the bottom line is simple. Yes, our Constitutional Republic is a gift from Almighty God. Yes, this concept is as important and our understanding of the underlying principles are crucial to our nation’s continued existence. But our Constitution, our Republic, is given to all citizens, Christian or not. Ours is not a Christian nation because God decreed it so. It is or can be a Christian nation only if our citizens overwhelmingly claim Christ. If we, as Christians, do not turn back to God, and hold forth God’s truth, our nation will fall to the globalists as Israel fell to Babylon.

To this end, while I expect, from time to time, to advocate local political activism as is our duty and responsibility under our Constitution, I believe God is leading me to expound more on the body of Christ, as a whole and as individual members. This is new to me. Not so much the subject matter, though I expect to learn much more in the near future, but more so the idea of “little ‘ol me” speaking for God. I’ve always been uncomfortable thinking, much less declaring such. I always considered such things presumptuous but God is showing me how I, too, am a member of the body of Christ and as such I have the honor and privilege of holding forth His Word.

Please pray for me.

Bluntly, I Am Shocked – Died Suddenly – Must See Video Report

WARNING! Some of the images in the video below are disturbing. It is NOT for children nor for the feint of heart.

The video below was forwarded to me by a friend. It takes a lot to shock me these days, particularly when it comes to medical issues. I have a medical background (x-ray). I’ve been in operating rooms. I witnessed someone die before my eyes.

The video below is a bit over an hour long. It’s worth watching all the way through. The evil unveiled is indisputable. Not long ago, I posted about the Spiritual War we are all engulfed in.  Keep that in mind as you see how several disparate entities work together; medical, media, government, and others, to further the globalists’ agenda.

Eyes on Brazil

Recently, I saw a report from Brazil suggesting the military might step in under Constitutional authority to audit the recent election. My understanding is this may be even more volatile than it sounds.

If you’ve been following events in Brazil at all, you probably know President-elect Lula De Silva, the communist convicted felon was certified the winner and sworn into office under dubious circumstances. The Brazilian courts, packed with enough communist sycophants to sway things to the left, have blessed this election despite massive protests from the citizens. And by “massive” I do mean MASSIVE protests. Citizens have been filling the streets nationwide for over a month now to decry what they believe to be a fraudulent election.

As of late, indigenous leaders, who are typically left-wing, have been jailed for joining these protests and being outspoken about the corruption. Not only is the government’s actions considered blatantly unconstitutional but they are causing further uproar among the people. The most casual observer would wonder why left-leaning citizens would be sounding such alarms seeing as how they tend to mostly agree with the agenda of the winning party. This alone should send up red flags everywhere. As Steven Bannon noted, the international media who usually champions these indigenous citizens, remains silent.

Meanwhile, the newly minted Brazilian administration is openly declaring they will replace the current military leadership with their own people. From here, all this looks like kids playing with fire at a gunpowder factory. Wait for it.

The way I see it, the most peaceful path to settling this is for the current military to step in and audit the election. Considering the angst of the citizens, I suspect the audit will uncover massive fraud and overturn the results. If military personnel are able to maintain a strong presence this wrong could be righted without bloodshed. Even this scenario could turn sour depending on how the president-elect responds. I doubt very much if he is acting alone so the question is who is backing him and what resources can they bring to bear?

Should this election stand, I fear a bloodbath, maybe more than one. It doesn’t appear the citizens protesting are likely to simply accept confirmation of this election. Something stinks about it and they all know it. At least until the indigenous leaders were jailed, things were peaceful. It seems jailing these leaders has already wrought some violence. Should the protests continue past verification of the election, I’ve no doubt more citizens will be jailed. Such actions could well incite more violence rather than quell the unrest. One way or another, this scenario seems ripe for escalation.

What does all this have to do with the United States of America? Lots.

For starters, Biden and Co. can be expected to fully support the communists – exactly as they supported Trudeau regime during the Canadian Trucker protest. Biden’s people never met an authoritarian they didn’t like. I suspect they would openly worship Putin if they thought they could do so. If the truth came out, it would surprise me not at all to learn Team Biden actually helped DeSilva steal the election. Do note the leftist articles I perused while researching this post all hail the “victory of Democracy” evidenced in DeSilva’s win. This alone gives me pause. Oh, yeah, and they all never fail to mention how “efficient and secure” Brazil’s electoral system is. Granted, as the fifth most populous nation on earth, that the election was tallied on election day should cause our own election officials to hang their heads in shame, but without more details, I question how secure the Brazilian system really is. A bigger question is, if it IS so “secure” why are so many citizens taking to the streets?

About those protests… right or wrong, the Brazilian citizens deserve our admiration for taking a stand. Unlike us, they are standing strong, even to the extent of ignoring soccer’s World Cup competition. This would be like Americans foregoing the Super Bowl to protest the Biden regime. The Brazilians are at least as passionate about soccer as we are about football, possibly more so. In addition, they’ve continued on for over a month now. How much resolve have we shown? Do you see Arizonans taking to the streets in Phoenix and Tucson? Despite massive issues, including a lot of very sketchy stuff involving election day shenanigans, not to mention mysterious late ballots showing up and counted, and previously rejected ballots added to the count pile. All this while declaring a paper-thin 17,000 vote win for Hobbs. The Arizona election reeks so bad one is inclined to hold one’s nose while watching news stories concerning it.

Back to Brazil, what happens there could well set the stage for elections all across the world. Should this election be overturned, and life return to normal for that nation, it could well encourage those of us who are tired of seeing election after election decided by hinky means. Should violence erupt, the side that comes out on top may well set the tone for other world events. Let’s explore this thought.

Suppose the globalists muster enough forces to shut down the protesters. Violence or no violence the implications are far ranging. The communists would have established a solid foothold on South America – enough to rule the region. Now Valenzuela has already failed due to gross mismanagement but that doesn’t mean Brazil will follow suit. Add in violence and they would set the example for any communist/globalist takeover of a major nation. Worse yet, Team Biden cannot be expected to just protest this move but more likely, they would applaud it. Not good.

On the other hand, if the citizens of Brazil were to prevail, it would be a setback for the globalists. It could be enough to send them reeling because the last thing they expect or want is any push back from the proletariat. The one inherent weakness all globalists have is numbers. Sure they can fool enough of the population to vote for their agenda but once enough citizens understand their true intent and balk, our numbers are overwhelming. You see, when the rubber hits the road, humans actually prefer freedom over tyranny.

Beyond this, our Brazilian brethren would also set an example for the world to see. Add their example to the British, the French, the Chinese, the Danes, the Sri Lankans, the Canadians and the Italians and you can see a trend building. World-wide citizens of several nations are breaking the chains of oppressive governments. Brazil is one of the latest but what is most interesting about happenings there is the protests span their nation. The real question that comes to my mind is when will us citizens of these United States face the reality of our corrupt government. Strangely enough, while we kid ourselves into believing we are a shining example of freedom and democracy, the globalists have very nearly completely gained a stranglehold on every facet of our nation.

Is Our Nation Lost?

One comment I read today concerns the Warnock-Walker Senate race in Georgia. The commenter stated if Warnock wins, it’s over for the republican party. Similar dissertations have popped up over other results. Right now the republican party is reeling and wringing their hands on how to become more relevant. Of course, they don’t use those words but isn’t relevance what it amounts to?

Let’s face it, most of today’s republicans can be likened to ghetto white boys. They dress what they think an inner-city gangbanger should wear, pound their ears with incessant hip hop, while trying their very best to act, um, cool? Whatever. Back in the old days, the stereotype was the nerd who wanted to be “popular”. Of course they’d always end up looking like idiots. Seems like some kids never learn. They “grow up” to be republicans – well, RINOs, really. You see, they want to be popular, you know, cool. These days that means going “green”, cheering for Zelensky, and virtue signaling at every opportunity. Of course, wearing the right labels and attending the right parties also earns points. And lets not forget about the most important task, the duty of every government official – ensuring our government continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Priorities, you know.

Meanwhile, here in the trenches, the citizens of our nation are lost. We are wandering. It is blatantly evident we cannot trust those in government – not our elected officials, nor those who ostensibly work for us. We can’t trust the electoral process. We can’t trust those leading our party – whoever that may be. The media lies. New evidence reveals some of the depth of those lies and where they come from. Did I mention we can’t trust those in government? I’ll clue you in… some of us were in class that day when it was revealed how all of a sudden it became legal for our government to lie to us citizens. I’m sure it’s all for our own good.

So is our nation also lost? This remains to be seen. That said, there’s less then two minutes on the clock in the forth quarter and the home team on their own one yard line and down by six touchdowns. Okay, maybe not six touchdowns but it’s not looking all that good. Then again, what if we’re looking at the wrong game? If the home team is 15-1-0 and seeded first in the playoffs, how much does this game matter? What if we stepped back a bit to consider the bigger picture?

This hurts, but what if our beloved nation, the United States of America, the greatest nation in the history of the world crumbled before our eyes? What then? If it all burned down today, what would rise from the ashes? Would we rebuild our Constitutional Republic? Or would something else take it’s place? Would the states survive? Would Texas want to be associated with New York? Would Tennessee cozy up to California? I’m not seeing it. What if the globalists declared victory? You know they would in a heartbeat – assuming all the globalists combined could find a heart among them. I have my doubts. Beyond that, what do the globalists want? It’s no secret. They want our borders to vanish so they can install a one-world government. Isn’t that what globalism is all about? Centralized control of everything? What happens to us patriots?

Sure it is a stark venture in thought but is it really beyond plausibility? I don’t think so. I’ve been saying for years now that the globalist agenda will eventually come about. Prophesy says so. If you cannot wrap your head around that idea, just look at basic demographics. The short view is people cluster. We humans tend to group together. It is our nature. As we gather into city centers, we tend to demand more government. This is indisputable. It always happens. Always. It is only a matter of time before we humans centralize ourselves into a world government. For this to happen, every nation worth two cents will be swallowed up by the central government. Again, it is simple logic. A central government cannot, will not stand competition. If it comes to war, so be it. Winner take all.

Again, we are back to square one. IS our nation lost… yet? Maybe, maybe not but we are at a critical crossroads. As I demonstrated earlier, there is no true opposition to the globalists. At least nothing of consequence. Lump all the conservatives together. Go ahead, toss in the Libertarians, the Constitution Party guys, and constitutionalists (no party affiliation) and whoever else and you still have a minority and a minuscule one at that. The globalists have successfully browbeaten our citizens into accepting enough of their drivel so what was once “far left” is now considered “moderate”. I’ll offer just one example. Suppose some serious public figure was to propose ditching Social Security? We would see howls of protest on both sides of the political spectrum. That figure would be considered a radical, if not entirely shunned. Once a radical Socialist program, SS is now sacred in political circles.

Can we ever find our way back as a nation? Personally I have my doubts. This doesn’t mean I am ready to write the good ol’ USA off entirely but I think it’s time to face facts. We are on the verge and things don’t look good for the home team. For those of us who can accept this possibility I can offer a ray of hope.

What is missing entirely from the postulation above? What have I not considered up until this point? Who is in control? How is this a game changer?

If it’s not obvious, let me be plain: GOD. We can talk politics all day long, but until we recognize that GOD is in total, complete control, all is for naught. By all means, GOD changes the game. Heck, GOD OWNS THE GAME. It is HIS playing field. HE set the rules. You know the adage, the house always wins, well we’re in GOD’s house.

Now with God in the picture, the game doesn’t just change, it becomes an entirely different game! Let’s call this game “good versus evil”. Right now it looks like evil has good on the ropes. It is an illusion. How about we take another gander at this game from God’s perspective?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

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:

Within these three verses we can pretty much figure out God’s end game. Ephesians indicates God’s no dummy. He knows not every one will believe. He knew this before it all began. Just the same, He gave everybody a chance. But wait! You say. What about those who were died before salvation became available? You mean, like David? Please. God’s got everything all figured out. If you can trust me on this one, trust Him. He is not just a “fair” God. He is a merciful and gracious God. I’ll take mercy and grace over fair any day. So let’s swing back on this whole “lost nation” thingy, huh?

We’ve all heard the tale and a lot of the jokes about Israel being so lost it took them forty years to trek about 435 miles, by most estimates about an eleven day journey. The joke I’ve heard most is Israel was lost because Moses refused to stop and ask for directions. How long would the journey taken had the people of this nation had turned to God and kept their eyes on Him? I’d say it’s possible we’d be talking about their amazing land speed record instead of forty years of wandering in the wilderness.

Now ask yourself… WHY is our nation lost? By now the answer should be obvious – we’ve turned away from God. In the battle of good vs evil, we are opting for evil. Huh. Go figure. What if we opted for good instead? What if we turned to God? Could our nation be saved? Restored even? I’d say possibly, but what if we’ve moved beyond that? What then?

In a worst-case scenario, our world would be on the fast track towards the end times. Once a world government is established we are all in for some spicy times. Tell me… what would you do if you woke up one morning with the realization that the wait was over? Those last days are upon us and we Christians are now enemy number one? What then?

In my own limited mind, I can think of two things. First – survival. I mean, I’m long past the point where death scares me but as long as I’m drawing breath, I’ll do what I can do keep drawing breath, so, survival. Second, rescue. By this I mean making every effort to give as many people as possible the chance to opt-in to eternity – whatever it takes. What else matters?

Now we’re not at this point yet. It may not come to that in my lifetime if I live to be 200. I just don’t know. What I do know is no matter whether our nation can be restored or not, God will remain in control and unless our nation, WE the People, turn back to Him, the globalists will continue to solidify their hold on us. Evil is winning, or so they think.

We can fight back but politics is not the answer. Certainly “civil war” is not the answer either. Once the nature of the battle we face is recognized, doesn’t it make sense to fight the spiritual war? I’ll get back to this in a moment. First how about we consider our circumstance in mortal terms.

Again I’ll contend that a physical war a la “Civil War I” is absolutely the worst scenario we can hope for. Nobody wins. Even if, lets call us “nationalists” wins, what do we have? A decimated nation, torn by war with dead yet to bury and either a government restored from our current Constitution or a new one formed from a revised Constitution. I’d say this is the “best case” scenario. It looks pretty bleak to me. Should the globalists win… hoo boy, we’re all in for fun.

So lets drop that notion for example. In the secular world what does this leave us if not a political solution. What political solution? What would a strong, Republican, majority bring to the table? For one thing, they’d be right back to battling the “other” party, whether it is comprised of democrats or whatever. Once again we will instantly be faced with a group whose primary objective has to be to grow the government. It is how power bases are formed. Additionally, it is all the politicians know how to do – grab and wield power via influence. Such is the goal. The tools, money (taxpayer money) and regulations, remain the same. Go ahead, change out “Republican” for “Conservative” or “Libertarian”, whatever. The formula for “getting things done” stays the same.

My own ideal political solution, one I highly doubt anyone else would sign on to would be effective but far too cumbersome and, as such, would soon fall back to the current status quo. In my ideal system, WE the People would rule at the county level. Thus the county seat would be the center of our political universe. All law enforcement would be under the primary jurisdiction of the county sheriff. More importantly, most government functions would be handled at the county level. State and Federal duties would be delegated when a majority of counties deemed it so. Subsequently state and federal representatives would answer to their constituents primarily via oversight committees comprised of representatives from each county. Additionally, each state and federal representative would be required to attend county, and in the case of larger population areas, city, board meetings on a regular basis. The oversight committees would take their direction from county residents who would meet, either in person or virtually, to make their preferences known. The board meetings would offer the opportunity for representatives to hear directly from their constituents and for constituents to have their voices heard.

Granted, my “ideal solution” is more of a work in progress than any sort of blueprint but the idea behind the concept is to find ways to decentralize government and our representation while allowing for a balance between access to our elected representatives and allowing them the breathing room to do the job we give them. Imagine being micromanaged by 500 people, then multiply that by 1000. That is about the average number of citizens in each congressional district. One of the most common complaints I hear from local representatives is they often cannot eat a meal in peace without being inundated with citizens with a word, a gripe, or some advice. Sure, it’s the nature of the job but they have lives too.

Summing up from my wanderings… if you take anything away from this post, I would hope it is the sense that the battle we face is spiritual, rather than political, in nature. As such we need to properly equip ourselves and fight accordingly. Every major issue facing us today has a spiritual base. The globalists are bent on denying evil even exists, much less God Himself.

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.

This is the sword that will win spiritual battles.

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

The good news is God has fully equipped us for this battle. He truly is our sufficiency in all things. Are you ready to take up “the whole armour of God”? Not the arms of the world that lead to destruction but the armament given to us by Almighty God to defeat the real foe in this war against evil.

Warnock’s Victory and My Response to a FnBook Friend.

By now you know the election was called for Warnock. As disturbing as many of us find this, it only takes a trowel to dig deep enough to uncover far more disturbing things about this. I’ll list a couple in no particular order.

First, we can gnash our teeth all we want about whether this election was stolen. The numerical difference with 95% tallied is 93,542 votes. How many votes would have to be stolen to reach that result? For the sake of argument, lets say 500,000. If such were true this would mean Walker actually won by over 400,000 votes. Okay. Fine. It would also mean that 1,300,000+ STILL VOTED FOR WARNOCK. If you don’t find this disturbing, why not?

We know what Warnock is. Strip off all the political rhetoric, and the pretty veneer. At his core, he is a globalist. His deepest desire is the same as all his comrades – to absolutely control the entire population (elites, excluded, of course.). At one point the globalists hid their agenda to some extent. No more. They openly parade their desires before us all.

Yet over 1.3 million people or more voted for his agenda. Either they know what he is and agree or they don’t have a clue. Either way, it is shameful… and disturbing.

Worse, in my mind, is Warnock purports to be a man of God. Now I have nothing against anyone of faith being in politics. In fact, as I am convinced our very nation is a gift from God Almighty, I believe every God fearing citizen should absolutely become involved in government at whatever level they are led to do so. It is our duty and responsibility. The problem with Warnock is he says he is a Christian. I won’t question his faith but I would remind him Jesus said “no man can serve two masters”. One of the tenants of globalism is to replace God with government. He will answer for his actions, this much is certain. What of the Christians who vote for him? What are they really voting for? I find this disturbing.

These same trends are mirrored across our nation. New York State has been a leader in this respect for decades or more. We can blame corrupt politicians. We can blame the democrat and/or the republican party. We can blame the media. When it comes down to brass tacks, we need to look to ourselves. What have WE done to shine a light on the truth?

At the heart of things, our nation is embroiled in a war between good and evil. It is indeed a spiritual war. If we are to stand a chance at winning this war we need the correct weapons of warfare and we need to know how to use them effectively. God has equipped us for spiritual warfare. You will find your armament listed in Ephesians 6 10-18, among other places.

Ephesians 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Can we win this war? Yes. Absolutely. WILL we win this war? I don’t know. What I do know is if we join this spiritual battle, we increase our chances AND we will gain territory for God. If nothing else, we will be able to offer our fellow citizens the opportunity to accept Christ and/or join the fight.

What say you?

God bless

The Problem With Brazil

Unless you only watch MSM or otherwise live under a rock, you’ve seen what’s going on in Brazil. For the aforementioned readers who someone stumbled upon this post, I’ll elaborate.

Brazil recently elected a new president. From what I’ve been able to ascertain, he is a convicted felon and an avowed communist. While felons are prohibited from running for that nation’s highest office by law, it appears the communist-leaning court gave him a pass. Does any of this sound familiar? Oh, yeah, that’s right, your MSM blinders don’t allow you to see anything other than the “official” party line. Maybe you’d better sit down. You see, the courts here in the good ol’ USA have likewise squelched any hint of electoral impropriety to the outrageous extent of branding the events in DC on January 6, 2020 as an “insurrection”. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along now.

It was only recently when CBS decided Hunter Biden’s laptop was really was Hunter Biden’s laptop and not some “Russian Hoax”. Now we are seeing the massive extent our own shadow government went to suppress this and a whole bunch of other information in order to install Slow Mo Joe in the White House. All that is just the beginning of sorrows initiated by the usurpers of our nation. Enough of that, back to our regularly scheduled post…

So Brazil’s election was compromised, beginning with a nominee who wasn’t legally qualified to run anyway and ending with massive fraud perpetrated to “elect” a communist, essentially turning the entire nation of Brazil over to the China. But that’s not the real story here. The real story is the reaction by the citizens of Brazil.

They are pissed and they are protesting en masse – all across the nation. The streets of ever major city is filled with citizens who are demanding this wrong be righted. That’s the story. Now for the problem…

Just like here in the US of A, nothing is happening. Here we’ve seen scandals, fraud and widespread criminality all over the place. From elected officials compromised by foreign agents, to open total disregard for our constitution, to former Vice Presidents promoted after openly admitting – bragging, actually, on video, to using his influence as VP to get the man investigating his own son fired by threatening to withhold foreign aid. The list of crimes alleged as well as blatant, staggers the mind and yet, only a handful of scapegoats are pursued and/or prosecuted.

Citizens who dared walk into the Capitol building on January 6 languish in prisons unfit for any human, not only deprived of their constitutional rights, but horrifically beaten and abused, while criminals who firebombed a police car are slapped on the wrist. Again and again, we see our nation sinking into lawlessness and all we can expect is more of the same and worse. How does this relate to Brazil?

Just like these things detailed above in the US, the citizens of Brazil are being ignored. Word is, the government there will impose martial law. The implied threat is “shut up about it or we will kill you.” This is the problem. If you’ve happened to have seen the masses protesting, there should be chills running down your back. First comes the realization that with so many Brazilians protesting, something is very, very wrong and the entire world should be taking notice. Then comes the sucker punch – their protests are not likely to have any effect. Yes, things might end badly either now or in the future. Yes, this may be the start of a very unstable Brazil for months, maybe years to come, but the will of the people is being subordinated to the will of the usurpers. This is most disturbing. Worse, it could be a portent of things to come here and all over the globe.

Not too long ago, I envisioned similar things happening here as those events in Brazil. Think of it, all across the nation, citizens gathering at county seats, asserting our authority as citizens and taking back our nation. What a display of citizen authority! Can you see in your mind’s eye, photo after photo in Twitter of citizens standing tall at their county seats? I was certain it would cause the usurpers to tremble with fear and awe once they realized their gig was up. While such an even could happen, what shook me was the apparent apathy of the Brazilian demonstration. It’s like nobody even bothered to yawn. Are the powers that be so confident of their grasp that they simply don’t care? What would it take to make them take notice?

Likewise Chinese citizens are protesting also. The crimes committed on them are even more mind-boggling in that they are being herded into facilities, let’s call them what they really are, concentration camps. Those who resist are beaten and even killed in the streets. One apartment building had the doors welded shut so the world watched in horror as residents were burned alive. Like the Brazilians, the Chinese government has yet to be challenged. If nobody stands up for them, who will stand with us?

That’s the problem I see. Is there a solution? YES! For most of you, it is not what you think. Not at all.

Abandon Ship!

Wait! What?! Really??!! In a sense, yes, really. I am not advocating leaving the country or giving up. What I am advocating is a complete refocus of our efforts. Now I’ve gone down this road before but this time I mean to burn some bridges, so to speak. For the most part, any and all political action is dead or dying. Can we take back our nation county by county? I do think it is still possible but recent events lead me to believe such efforts are more than not likely to fail. Why?

Look at this last election. Yes, the republicans reclaimed the House of Representatives. whoopie. (was I able to convey my nearly total lack of enthusiasm here?) Meanwhile Arizona’s election was stolen and it looks like it will remain that way. In New York? The democrat machine reinstalled the entirely uninspiring and totally worthless Kathy Hochul. Pennsylvania likewise sent the barely functioning John Fetterman to the US Senate. Michigan went to Gretchen Whitmer. And so on and so forth. As I’ve stated before, it doesn’t matter one whit whether any of these elections were on the up and up or not. It really doesn’t. Unless the cheating was done on such a scale that it totally overwhelmed the will of the People, we need to come to terms with the fact that a significant number of citizens actually voted for these individuals.

Even IF the anticipated “Red Wave” took place, the result would only be a band-aid on the gaping wound infecting our nation – and the adhesive on that would barely cling. The real issue we’re facing is much larger than any one election can address, much less repair. The real issue is we’ve lost God. As a nation we are a people wandering in the wilderness, wondering why God has abandoned us. In truth, WE have abandoned HIM. For this reason, I’m advocating we abandon this “ship”, i.e. an political remedy and turn our attention fully upon God. How can we do this?

For those of you involved in your church already, and I mean really involved, step back and examine what is going on in your church. What is your focus? Are you going through the motions are you in the trenches? Is your church focused inwardly on members or on outreach? Is it effective? Are you bearing fruit? You can ask this of yourself as well as your church. The fruit you bear is the harbinger.

If you are not involved in a church… why not? Are there no churches near you that bear fruit? Surely there must be some Christians in the area doing God’s work. Find them. Join them. Or start something yourself. Look to God to lead you.

If you have not accepted Christ, I’m not sure what I can do for you. Nobody can make you. That’s the whole point. If you are still reading this, I suspect you are doubting your own convictions. All is not lost as long as you are still breathing. Believe it or not, God will help you. I am living proof. God literally saved my life (maybe multiple times, I don’t know.) both before and after I accepted His Son Jesus as my Lord and Savior. He guided me to exactly the right people to provide me with exactly the right information I needed to be saved. And get this, the people He guided me to were not all from some “church group”. Only one was attending services at the time. Ask God to show you the way. Email me if you like.

At this point in history, I do not know what the future holds. Okay, I never do, but that is beside the point. I once had hopes this nation could be restored. Now I am not so sure. Either way, we need to seek out God and His Will. As for me, I’m forming a bible study group. My goal is to get together with other believers and seek out fellowship and biblical truths. My own idea is for this to be the first of many seeded study groups. Whether this is what God has in mind is yet to be seen. All I know is I feel the need to reach out and this is my first step to that end. My own life these days has not born as much fruit as I feel it ought to, so I am doing exactly what I advocate.

What matters most today is outreach. As a Christian, if you are reaching out already, ask God to show you how to do more. If you are not reaching out, then ask God to show you where to start. If you have distanced yourself from God, then your first step is to draw nigh to Him. We can do nothing without God. Until we turn to Him, our nation will continue to decline until we find ourselves fighting for our very lives. Our best effort now is to immerse ourselves in the truth, hold it forth and stand fast.

God bless

WHAT IS This Country Coming To?

For over two years now (longer actually), I’ve put up with all this crap about election fraud, shady elections, questionable election practices and the like. The past two years or so have been the worst because all of a sudden, it’s no longer “cool” to question election results… unless, of course, those results favor a republican nominee over a democrat. I’ve had it.

Like I said this garbage has be going on far longer than the past two years. My most pressing question is:

HOW Did We Get Here?

Or have we always been this complacent? Looking back, I envision more of a slippery slope. Maybe we’d see some sort of blip or a glitch now and then in this election or that one. What was done? Was the problem taken seriously? Was it resolved? Was the integrity of the election process examined with any issues addressed and corrected? I don’t know. Maybe these things never happened. They should have. Even if they did, somewhere along the line someone shrugged. Some problem was simply ignored or otherwise allowed to fester. Then other problems arose. More and more they slid under the radar. During this last election cycle, where the most glaring example is in Maricopa County, Arizona, issues, major issues of election integrity and an honest count, are in danger of being simply batted away like a pesky fly. If it persists, they’ll just kill the fly.

HOW Can We Let This Happen?

Where is the outrage? I liken this to my wife when she reconciles our checkbook. If she is off just one penny, she will work those figures like a dog worries a bone. I’ve seen her fret for days about the most insignificant (to me) discrepancy. Personally, I’d write off a few cents and be done with it. Not her. Only 100% agreement between the bank and her calculations are acceptable. THIS is the sort of attitude we need to have concerning our electoral process.

Discrepancies, murky questions, and shady dealings should never, EVER be associated with our electoral processes. Everything needs to be on the up and up and on full display for everyone to see. ALL questions should be dealt with, in public. The process should never need be questioned.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a myriad of issues come up in multiple elections all over our nation. These range from dead people voting, to questionable individuals being allowed to vote without ID (right here in Virginia where ID is legally required to vote!), to scores of voting machine issues – including alleged flip/flopping actual votes, machines that conveniently jam or otherwise fail, districts counting more votes than they have registered voters, and more. Whether any of these issues have been properly addressed, and I’m certain some of them have NOT, is more often than not never publicized beyond the initial reports. Granted, news media thrives on conflict and dies on resolution but one would expect at least a hint that some of these issues are resolved. Instead, crickets.

Enough Is Enough!

Frankly, I’m pissed. My anger is not directed at the cheaters or at those whobenefit from cheating. It’s not directed at the courts who refuse to even look at these problems. It’s not directed at our elected officials who should see to it the issues are addressed properly and corrected. Nor am I angry with those charged with overseeing the processes and ensuring they are right and proper. No. I am mostly pissed at myself and my fellow citizens. WE are allowing this to happen. WE are ultimately responsible to see to it that OUR elections are squeaky clean and there is NO QUESTIONS about their integrity.

WHERE IS OUR OUTRAGE? When are WE going to INSIST our elections are done right? There is no excuse for us if all we do is throw up our hands in surrender. Right here. Right now is when we must take a stand. If any, ANY result is not “right”, then we need to DEMAND a strict accounting. The books need to balance. We cannot afford to be off one single penny, one single vote.

Was The Election Stolen… Again? Why This Doesn’t Matter

In fact, we are much better off as a nation if this last election was stolen. How crazy is that? Consider the alternative – Fetterman won, fair and square. What does this say about the people of Pennsylvania? Forget Fetterman. Instead take a look at any race in this year’s election cycle resulting in a disappointing loss. As far as I’m concerned, none of these races should have been close, much less a loss. At least they shouldn’t be close from the perspective of liberty.

Every single democrat ran and won on a single unifying principle – more government. This, at a time when we are all drowning in government. You just don’t throw water on a drowning person. Ronald Reagan was right – the more government we have, the less liberty we enjoy. (paraphrased) This idea, in and of itself is nuts. Our nation was founded on the principle of a limited government but today’s society all but demands unlimited government and it’s killing us, literally as well as figuratively.

There was reason and logic behind the concept of a limited government. Citizens should be free to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. As long as we respect each other’s rights, rights each of us equally enjoy, our nation will thrive. While in practice, our implementation of these principles have been flawed from day one, our nation has thrived. We’ve risen to be the most productive, influential, and powerful nation the world has ever seen. Imperfect as we are, we remain a shining beacon for the world. Nobody is flooding Haiti’s borders trying to get in. You know why.

Instead of a prosperous and orderly nation, we’ve devolved into a myriad of tribes each vying for prizes from the treasury. Equity has replaced equality and as such, has burdened our most productive citizens by forcing one group to suffer to appease another. Worse, productivity has taken second place to privilege so merit is devalued as a factor for opportunity. Everybody loses. Those with lessor skills no longer need to sharpen them to make the grade and those with better skills languish where their abilities are wasted. The new normal is to settle for mediocrity rather than strive for excellence and it shows.

Our nation is devolving into a third-world county. Already, we’ve lost the respect of nations that once looked up to us. Once the cash flow to them subsides, our influence will drop to zero. Our military will soon be transformed from the envy of the world to a laughingstock. Even Corporal Klinger would bow his head in shame. Once our economy tanks and we can no longer afford all those things we now take for granted, the world will look for more promising markets. Nobody heeds a bum, no matter how fabulously wealthy and successful they were yesterday.

None of this is, or will be the result of this last election cycle. Rather it the result of where our nation has been headed for decades. Some will look back to Woodrow Wilson’s presidency. Others may recognize roots extending beyond that. In some ways, I contend we were doomed from the start because our forefathers failed to properly educate the people about the duties and responsibilities of our republic. In their defense, I suggest that few, if any, really understood many of the nuances themselves as what they accomplished had never been done before.

From a godly perspective, we are likely right where we ought to be in the grand scheme of things. Perhaps the real question should be… where do we go from here? I see two paths. One continues on the way we are going, growing government, limiting liberty until everything crumbles… and crumble it will. Our current situation is unsustainable, as we continue to spend far faster than we can produce. The second path is rugged. It doesn’t even appear to be navigable. Instead of growing government, we need to shrink it… a lot. Instead of suffocating ourselves with endless regulation, we need to simplify. Rather than practice “set it and forget it” citizenship where we only show up occasionally on election days, we need to roll up our sleeves and dig in. We need to hold our representatives, ALL of our representatives accountable. We need to gauge every action, every proposal against the standard of limited government vs liberty. We need to learn to do things for ourselves instead of clamoring for more government to do things for us. Most of all… we need to get right with God. What does God have to do with anything? Everything.

If you cannot see how God fits into the equation then you are part of the problem. I’m sorry if you are an atheist or even a non-Christian. I am particularly sorry if you claim Christ and cannot see my point or worse, take offense. Don’t get me wrong, I am not discounting non-Christians. Nothing in our Constitution requires any citizen to be a Christian or even believe in any god at all to participate. You have just as much say, just as many rights as anyone else. That said, our nation was founded by the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and blessed by Him in no uncertain terms. Those of us who claim Christ need to accept and acknowledge this. Never mind the rest, they get a free ticket to ride. We Christians, however, must put God first in our lives and in our nation.

There is a deeply spiritual aspect to the state of our nation today. It is war. In the end, God wins. Meanwhile this nation is a battleground. The real war is God vs the god of this world, the devil. If we are to win, it will be with God at our side. Politics will not win this war.

CAN We Win on November 8th?

Most of us are anticipating the “Big Game” on Tuesday. It’s the Nationalists vs the Globalists in a heated contest. From the looks of things, the Nationalists are coming on strong. Many are predicting a blowout. Others warn it’s not a done deal. The Globalists are known to play dirty and there is every reason to believe they will pull out every sneaky play in their book. One thing we all can agree on – this one will be a nail biter.

Yawn. That’s right. Wake me when it’s over. Don’t get the wrong idea. I do believe this coming election may well be very crucial to the future of our nation. No matter which way it goes it will be decisive. Or will it? Let’s consider.

Suppose the worst happens, as far as us “Nationalists” are concerned. The blue team snatches a victory by keeping a majority in both houses. Even if all they do is keep on doing what they are doing now, we are in for one hell of a tempest. Our current path leads nowhere but down. Worse, the burgeoning diesel crisis could soon plummet our nation into depression territory. I’m not talking about running out of diesel. I am assured we are still producing it but we will see shortages. And since our nation literally runs on diesel fuel – from trains to trucks to tractors to heavy equipment and more – no aspect of our nation’s economy will be unaffected. And that is just one issue.

Even more dire is the fact that the globalists will seize upon a win, declaring it a mandate to double down. It won’t matter if they cheated to gain the advantage. They will not let go of it come hell or high water. And double down is just what they will do. Hunting down political adversaries, shutting down all semblance of free speech, even demanding more violence against dissenters will all be on the table. If the globalists win, we who oppose them will be in a fight for our very lives.

But what if we win? That’s a good thing… right? It depends. Really. One factor we need to consider is how big the win is. At this point I’m seeing a lot of speculation about impeachments. Every time I point out that unless there are enough potential votes in the Senate to convict, any impeachment efforts are a foolish waste of time. And the democrats are not likely to vote for a conviction even if the evidence is overwhelming. Here in Virginia, our two Senators, Warner and Kaine are solid blue. I cannot see Kaine voting against his party under any normal circumstances. Warner might possibly jump ship IF he was convinced it was the only way to salvage his political career. Such would be the case for any democrat Senators and none of them will even be up for election for another two years. That’s a lot of time to forget.

Besides that, gaining a “super majority” in the Senate is more pipe dream than possibility. I don’t see it happening. So what we’d be left with is a majority in both houses and there is no guarantee of this either but let’s dream a bit. Again, with a majority in the House, the republicans could impeach anyone within their constitutional reach, but, again, there’s no teeth to this act and I cannot see Joe Biden stepping down for that. I can see him pardoning anyone who happens to be impeached. Along with that, I’ll stand by my prediction that Joe will not last much past the two-year mark of his first term. How the handlers plan on dealing with Harris is beyond me. If I were in their position, I’d replace her first and then dump Bobo, but I digress.

What, exactly can an opposition majority do with a globalist president in the Oval Office? One thing they are not likely to do is override any vetoes. So anything they pass will have to be negotiated. And they can hold up funding so as to make life miserable for the leftist cause. The danger here is the left will be screaming bloody murder all the while. They know from experience, what they scream is far less crucial to their cause than how loudly and how often they scream it. Even defeated, they do not give up and they do not give up. My point is, what the nationalists can do is limited at this point, especially when the globalists control the administration. But it gets worse.

What’s worse? Winning will most likely give us a false sense of security. We’ll breathe a collective sigh of relief – hopefully it will be about the only “collective” thing we do – and go back to our day jobs. Meanwhile, the political machines keep rolling. Unless we keep applying pressure, supporting those who support our republic and shining the light on the globalists and their agenda, we will soon end up right back between a rock and a hard place. In short, we can expect little reward for our win and lots of trouble.

The Bigger Issue

As a nation we have a far bigger issue facing us. I’ve pointed this out before and I’ll keep on doing it until I crash into some brick wall. The problem is, somewhere in the neighborhood of half our nation buys into the globalist garbage enough to put them in power. This is not a “political” difference. It is not some intellectual contest. It runs much deeper than that. It goes to the core of our nation. It is spiritual in nature. The globalists’ “god” is government. Their god is a false god and they worship it in earnest. I’ve pointed this out before – their ultimate goal is complete and total rule over every aspect of every individual’s life. And they’ve conned nearly half of our citizens into believing in their utopia.

The only way to reclaim our nation is to reclaim our stature as sons of the God and Father of our Lord Christ Jesus. We need to turn back to God and ask Him for His help. We must stand strong on those principles we’ve been taught since our youth. We need to turn away from ungodly things and set our affections on things above.

Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Do you turn to God daily? How many times? The apostle Paul encouraged us to pray without ceasing. Does your life reflect your commitment to Christ? Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying we all need to start living like monks. Speaking for myself, I see a whole lot of room for improvement in my own life. That said, I do endeavor to make those improvements on a daily basis. I’ve also gone down paths where I’ve spent days, weeks, and months pursuing things that would never bring me closer to God. Not all pursuits necessarily need to be “sinful” to draw us away from our relationship with God. I’ve even seen “church projects” that have lead honorable men away from a godly life. Often it is not the path itself but the perspective of the individual traveling it.

No matter what party ends up with a majority in either house, we can win or lose by the actions we take as citizens and believers. If we gain ground, great – lets make sure those we elect into offices are held accountable and that we diligently work towards bringing God back into our lives and our nation. If we lose ground we need to do much the same but it will be harder as the globalists will do all they can to eradicate anyone or anything in their way. They cannot defeat God but knowing this will not deter them.

Pandemic Amnesty

This is apparently from The Atlantic:

 

My comments are made without reading the article. Forgive me, it’s The Atlantic and I just ate breakfast. Speaking of forgiveness, I have no problem with that.

I forgive Tony Fauci for his part in it. I forgive Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Whitmer, and… oh hell the list is far, far to lengthy. I’d bore even myself and that takes some doing. Let’s just call it a blanket of forgiveness. Some of you are guilty of very despicable deeds. Many of you were energized by the power you seized and wielded it like bloodlusting berserkers. You are forgiven. Yes, even the worst of the worst of you… I forgive you.

Now lets talk about amnesty. No way. No how. Uh-uh, forget it. First let’s make sure we are on the same page.  This from Merriam-Webster

amnesty: the act of an authority (such as a government) by which pardon is granted to a large group of individuals

The forgiveness I offer is spiritual in nature. This is something I am instructed to do as a believer in Christ.

Mark 11:25  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Now there is more to it than above, but isn’t this enough? My Heavenly Father has forgiven an untold number of my sins. Surely none of them resulted in a single death, much less hundreds, thousands, or millions of deaths but such is besides the point. The above scripture didn’t qualify any “trespasses”. It didn’t say I’m only required to forgive those trespasses that are equal or less than my own now did it? No. He (Jesus) said “any” and he meant any.

However nowhere in scripture are we told forgiveness allows us to escape consequences.  There will be an accounting.

Romans 14:11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12  So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

Now here consequences are implied but not specifically stated. However we all know that here in this life, forgiven or not, we still must often pay for our mistakes.

Every now and then a story will rise up about a convicted murderer about to face execution. Some have come to Christ since their conviction. Are they forgiven? Surely they are, but the death penalty is still invoked.

Now lets talk about the pandemic, shall we? Where do we begin? With the “two weeks to flatten the curve” crowd? How about those who shut down schools and businesses? Or pushed “vaccines” on those who didn’t need it. (Turns out, that would be just about everybody, at least.) Or those who fired anyone who refused a mandated jab? Again, the list is endless.

Families were separated, friendships forever destroyed, not because of the pandemic itself but over differences of opinion on how to deal with it.  The entire world, along with our nation was disrupted and forever soiled. Much of the corruption of the 2020 election is a direct result of the ensuing panic.

Crimes were committed. Our Constitution was shredded in the name of “public health”.  Only now are many people beginning to realize what a number of us suspected or even knew – the pandemic was a scam, a con game. The virus was little more than a flu bug, easily treated and quite survivable by more than 99% of the population.

Far more people died due to blatant medical malpractice, with the blessing of our own governments, than were even at risk from the virus alone. Given early, effective treatment, many of those would have lived. Had not so many infected elderly been warehoused in nursing homes, many more lives would have been spared. Then there’s the “vaccine”.

First of all the very term “vaccine” is an aberration. The definition of the word had to be changed to accommodate the mRNA technology. Just like the popular product “Velveeta” cannot legally be called “cheese” (it must be termed a “cheese food”) the mRNA concoction could not be called a “vaccine” unless the term was redefined. Even the term “anti-vaxxer” was redefined to include anyone who dared question the insanity of widespread, repeated jabs of otherwise healthy individuals.

Secondly, early treatments such as hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin were purposely disavowed and still are in some circles. At least one pundit shed light on this by stating the reason for disavowing these treatments was because the FDA could not legally authorize the emergency use of the mRNA product if an effective treatment was available. Oh.

And now we are seeing the consequences of  this push to inject this crap multiple times into as many arms as possible. People are dying, literally dropping dead. Many more are suffering severe health issues. These poor people, and their families, are paying dearly for what? A mistake? Or was it all deliberate? We may never know. But really, tell me exactly why those directly or indirectly responsible should receive “amnesty” for their utter disregard for the science, much less logic and common sense.

In this group, I am including health professionals. I myself had a run-in with a physician’s assistant who refused to even discuss sane treatments for Covid. She stated she didn’t want to lose her license to practice. To her credit, she did not advocate the jab, at least to me. And I can understand her fear of losing her livelihood. However many walked away from careers on principle. My problem with her is her total refusal to even consider or discuss alternative approaches. She “wasn’t going to argue” about it with me. Granted I can be very argumentative but in this case, I was far from that point. I was only questioning her about her stance.

If a far greater number of health professionals stood up and insisted on actually following the science, the entire landscape of the pandemic would have changed for the better. It’s one thing to not understand what is happening. It is quite another to go along with procedures and protocols when you’ve seen the devastating results firsthand.

Then, how should we treat the media and big tech? Both groups colluded with government officials to spread the lies and keep them going. Even today, they continue to double down on falsehoods.  At one point, several media personalities advocated those who failed to bow to their lies be imprisoned, left untreated, left to die, or even killed. Concentration camps for the “unvaxed” were advocated and even implemented in some countries (Australia comes to mind). Both suppressed any dissent from the official line. In fact, they still do.

The buzz from these groups is all about eliminating “misinformation” and “disinformation”. Ironically, once the truth becomes overwhelming. it will be their heads on the chopping block. (Note to the feds and other nanny groups – this is a figure of speech and not to be taken literally.) The most outrageous purveyors of “misinformation” and “disinformation” is the main stream media and big tech. It’s almost as if they are incapable of telling the truth.

These are but the worst examples. So, no, those of you who pushed this swindle need to be held accountable. If you broke the law then you need to be charged, tried, and  if convicted, punished. These are the consequences of your actions. I’m not advocating this for the sake of vengeance. “Vengeance is mine, saith the LORD, I will repay.” So no, I am not being vengeful. However, in addition to accountability, i.e. “confessing your sins” or in lieu of this, having your actions reviewed in court, an example must be set. If we do not act according to the law and pursue justice for your illegal actions then our inaction would be an open invitation to do it all again. And this, we cannot tolerate.

Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right

Stuck In The Middle With You · Stealers Wheel

Why did this song suddenly start running through my head?

As you might guess the refrain was what kept coming to mind

Clowns to the left of meJokers to the rightHere I am stuck in the middle with you

Now, it’s not entirely accurate. For the most part both sides of the political spectrum could be deemed to the left of me. It’s not that I’m “so far right” but more that they are so far left. Seriously.

First up, emails from the Virginia GOP. Take a  peek at the snapshot I took.

Note the subject line of each email – “We didn’t receive your response”

and then “Where’s your response”.

Now I’m not going to try to school them or anybody on writing subject lines that get open or emails that get responses. I could learn a few things about both myself. That said, I doubt this approach is very effective. All it did for me was piss me off but maybe I’m just too sensitive.

Inside is an appeal for money, because, the Republicans are losing Virginia or some such. Maybe they are. Our two Senate seats are held by Democrats, crappy ones at that, but they aren’t up for reelection.

According to one search engine, this is the current makeup of Virginia’s representation in the House

So it’s no wonder they think they are losing, they probably are. Here’s a hint fellas – you aren’t getting creamed for lack of money.  How can I say this? In election after election Republicans have won despite being outspent big time. It’s not the money, it’s the message. Take what you sent me for example.
The subject line whines “We didn’t receive a response” while the sender says “noreply@virginia.gop”. That tells me you want me to hunt for a way to respond to you. Now, I will tell you the actual email address went to an address  different that the “noreply” addy. That’s comforting. NOT.
Then you follow up with another whiney subject line, same sender demanding to know “Where’s your response”. Not even a question mark. Jerks.
Now they vary the name of the sender, all with the same return addy. Sometimes they’ll say “Team Virginia”, “Team GOP”, or sometimes just a first name, like I’m supposed to know who it is and where they’re from. There’s no consistency.  No rhyme. No reason. Most of these emails are ignored. I can’t even work up enough enthusiasm to delete them, much less unsubscribe.
For the record, I’m not going to send you any money no matter what your subject line says and no matter whom you say it’s from. I’m just not. Why not? Because your message sucks and I’m not talking about your emails. Beyond that, I am generally opposed to party politics because in practice, the two-party system sucks even worse.
So much for the jokers. Now about those clowns.
This one is more sad than irritating. I’ll elaborate in a bit. First, take a gander at these three screenshots I stole from 90 Miles From Tyranny
My thoughts when I read the first one was, sure, let Darwin do his work. Or at least it got me to thinking about all those who have taken the jab and experienced serious health issues up to and including death. Isn’t this sort of what’s happening? This brings me no joy and unlike the late Mr. Rowe, I do care. I have no wish to see anyone suffer or die because they were duped into taking this jab.
This last meme says exactly what I’ve been thinking for quite some time now. I’m fairly certain I’ve posted as much here before.
Mr. Rowe was a fool and he paid for his foolishness with his life. Was he Darwined? I suppose so but again, I only feel sadness, not victorious.
Believe it or don’t but I see a common thread uniting the two more or less “opposite” sides of the spectrum above. Neither side has bothered to take a step back to actually look at things. They are blinded by their micro-focus. For the GOP, maybe it’s just greed. Maybe they don’t really want to win, they just want the money. I find it hard to believe everybody who calls themselves a Republican or work for the party is like that, but enough of them may well be. As for the rabid vaxers, I can’t say. The only thing that comes to mind is this:
The eye sees what the mind tells it to see.
This is always true in my experience. I’ve seen it in myself and I’ve seen it in others.  It is one of the main reasons I try to challenge by beliefs and check my assumptions at the door. Those are the things that blind us.

The Democrat Death Cult

Last night Tucker Carlson interviewed Kanye West. I must say it was interesting. I had no idea Mr. West had a such strong relationship with God. It was encouraging. What I found even more riveting was Tucker’s conversation with one of his regular commentators, Jason Whitlock.

The fact is, I always find Jason Whitlock’s comments worth paying attention to. Last night was no exception. Of course the subject line tells it all. Mr. Whitlock described the Democrats as being focused on death. He cites abortion mostly. Others (I can’t remember any names) have come right out and declared the Democrats as a death cult. Whitlock’s comments got me to thinking along those lines and now I’m convinced those who say so may be more right than one first suspects.

Before I get into that, I’d like to delve a bit more into Jason Whitlock’s perspective as I’ve observed it. What I really like about him is he tends to think in godly terms. He and I both were somewhat conflicted about Kanye West’s statements. His sense overall was Mr. West struggles between fame and God. While I’d be more inclined to describe the conflict as between the trappings of fame and God, I cannot say Mr. Whitlock would disagree with me on that. It’s a small distinction, my specialty. Still, Mr. Whitlock got me to thinking deeper about the larger spiritual issues this artist faces. It is then when I saw the Democrats as a whole in a new light.

Of course they are all about death. Their spiritual leader, whether they recognize him as such, is death incarnate, or he would be if he were able to take human form. The spiritual leader of the Democrats is the devil himself. Not that many, if any, would publicly affirm this, but think about it. They deny God at every turn. They actively seek to remove God from any public place and as many private places as possible. For them, God has no place in science. He is not in control of the environment. They refute the natural order of man down to where they deny gender. He is barred from government and from schools. Public prayer is looked down upon, if not banned altogether. Those of us who turn to God are treated worse than second-class citizens. We are less than human to them. In short, their goal is nothing less than a godless society. While this will never happen, you can rest assured it won’t be from lack of effort on their part.

Now hang on to your hats, here it comes, the devil, the spiritual leader of the Democrats, wants us all dead. While Jesus promised eternal life for all those who believe on him…

John 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

… the devil makes no such promise, ever. What does that tell you? Without God, all you have is the life in front of you on this earth. If this life was all I had to look forward to, I’d make every effort to squeeze as much out of it I could too – maybe. Yet humans naturally seek to live longer and many seek evidence of life after death. Why?

Part of the reason is we are all hard-wired to want more. We want more material things, more love, more sex, more everything. Ultimately, we want more life. This desire is innate. Those who take their own lives do so mostly because the life they are now living is unsatisfying. I would speculate the rest end things because they anticipate a bleak future as well. The rest of us spend the brunt of our time trying to make the most of the life we have.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Ahhh! That’s the spot! Not just life, but a more abundant life. Need I say who the thief referenced here is? How have those who cling to the Democrat party manifested themselves?

To steal: promoting “cashless bail” schemes that enable criminal behavior, redistributing wealth from those who work for their money to those who don’t

To kill: insisting on abortion on demand up to the last second prior to birth and beyond, releasing violent criminals back into society, encouraging the use and abuse of deadly drugs

To destroy: advocating violent riots that decimate cities, defunding police protection, implementing policies that destroys and erodes families, obliterates reproduction, encourages destructive behavior on all levels.

Aren’t we better than this as a nation? Given a choice between peace and turmoil, isn’t peace far more attractive? If you choose to forsake God or refuse to recognize God’s very existence, this choice is yours, but shouldn’t the rest of us be free to choose and believe our own path?

There is nothing the Democrats have to offer that I want any part of – at least nothing I am precluded from getting elsewhere. Other than death, they can only claim compassion by taking what is mine and giving to someone they deem worthy. No thanks. It is not your “compassion” I object to, it is how you manifest it. As for their obsession with death, I’ll choose life every time.

Did You Miss This? Biden Advocates Universal Minimum Tax

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock after all. The other day I listened to some of Joe Bobo’s ramblings. All of a sudden my ears perked up when he mumbled something about a Universal Minimum Tax. What the hell is that? My first thought was “This isn’t Bobo’s idea – his last best idea was to copy somebody else’s work and call it his own.” At least I was right on one thing… Joe Biden remains the world champion of unoriginal thoughts. Now about that Universal Minimum Tax.

First this from our own propaganda machine – VOANews.com – aka “The Voice of America”.

US Failure to Implement Global Minimum Tax Could Be Costly

135-country agreement

The global minimum tax is part of a larger international taxation framework developed under the auspices of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and the G-20 group of large economies

Okay, back up… what is this Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (or OECD)? As much as I hate to do this, I’ll use this from Wikipedia.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development is an intergovernmental organisation with 38 member countries, founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade.

Like I was saying, I guess I’ve been living under a rock. This organization has been in existence for almost my entire life but this is the first I’ve heard of it. And now they want a 15% cut from all the corporations on the planet? Uhhhh, no. I have lots and lots of problems with this entire idea.

First and foremost… who died and made them the boss of me? More succinctly – by what authority do these bozos think they have any claim to anybody’s money? I don’t give a hoot about what “countries” agreed to this crap, it is far and above any Constitution authority in these United States so bug off buds.

But… you say, they only want to tax corporations. Big deal! Yes. It is a big deal. Let me count the ways.

Number one: corporations DO NOT pay taxes! Corporate taxes are taken from revenues. Revenues generated by sales to customers. Corporations do not pay taxes – their customers pay those taxes. That means you and I pay those taxes. It is a sneaky roundabout way of extracting more money from citizens’ pockets but that is what is is.

Number two (and this is a BIGGIE!): Guess how the IRS slithered their way into our pockets? Yep. Income tax was passed to ostensibly ONLY take a portion of profits from business ventures. At the time the politicians swore (on their sainted mothers’ graves if push came to shove, I’m sure) up and down the government would never, every take one thin time directly from citizens. How’s that working out for us?

It should be obvious to anyone with more than three functioning brain cells that this entire scheme is yet another way for the globalists to redistribute wealth. Of course they do all this in the name of “equality” and “compassion” but it will end up lining the pockets of politicians and their friends and handlers. At least, at first. Later on things will get worse, much worse. How? They will utilize the tried and true “carrot and stick” approach to get others to do anything the globalists desire. Here’s how it works.

Here in the US, they used this quite successfully to raise the legal drinking age nationally to 21. It was easy peasy. First the feds got the states hooked on federal highway funds. You should note that our Constitution in no way authorizes the federal government to extract money from citizens and redistribute this money to the states for any purpose. Of course, this has never stopped them before or since. So when some Grand Poobahs decided it was a good idea for all citizens of legal age but under age 21 to be prevented from drinking alcohol (yet another entirely unconstitutional precept) they made it known that unless states bowed to their decree, they would not get federal highway funds. So now a citizen who otherwise enjoys every other right imbued to citizens who have reached majority age, cannot legally obtain alcoholic beverages in any state in the union.

It is easy to see a grand plan here. Take money from citizens from around the world by stealth, using corporate profits as a shield, and use that cash to gain the cooperation of any nation they choose. While it doesn’t sound like much on the surface, this con game will amount to trillions of dollars and the OECD would fast become more powerful that the United Nations. Of course the potential for abuse is equally enormous.

The authority to tax has always been a function of government entities. This has long been acknowledged as the basic right of a government. It is an aberration really, for any government to concede such a right to a non-government entity. What are the implications? As I said above, the first implication is such an entity can use their redistribution abilities to bend nations to their will. How far can they take this? As with the drinking age example, up to and including demanding legislation, even if the proposed laws flies in the face of the law of the land. In short, I see this as a pathway to a one world government. Even more startling, it could be established with absolutely no official formulative documentation other than those similar to the obscure paperwork already in place.

It does not have to be the OECD or the UN or any entity currently in place. The camel’s nose is already under the tent. One could say that first camel has been joined by a herd of camels and they are all eyeing the tent. How far these schemes have advanced is not the issue. What we, as citizens of whatever nation we are, need to nix this idea. For my fellow US citizens, this is crucial. More than any other nation, we have the innate authority to veto this entire concept and veto it we must.
