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.

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

 

 

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?

Why The FIRST Amendment Secures Freedom of Speech

Sometimes it takes me a while to catch on, even to the simplest concepts. For years whenever I considered the First Amendment to our Constitution, I mostly wondered why our right to keep and bear arms came second. Only recently did it dawn on me why our freedom of speech is enumerated before our right to defend ourselves and our nation.

First take note: freedom of religion is at the very TOP of the list and rightfully so. One can argue till the end of eternity, if one was to believe in such, about whether the founding fathers truly believed in God Almighty or what they believed. No matter what else one can say, it is indisputable where they placed the words “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”. Here is the First Amendment in its entirety:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Freedom of speech comes second, followed by freedom of the press (i.e. the right to PUBLISH ones words). As for the final two: “or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” one may wonder if these should be rendered collectively or individually. Why not both? I see no reason to insist one activity be dependent on the other.

Please understand, I am in no way saying the order of our declared rights specifies any inherent ranking. That said, could there be some sort of “divine design” in how these are ordered?

As a Christian, I am obligated to put God first and foremost in my life – or at least make every effort to do so. Fallible as I am, I cannot count how many times I’ve missed this mark. Even so, acknowledging God Almighty is most important to me. I fully believe this is important to God Himself also. So take it as you will. After all you have every right to believe or not, but I see an incredible divine logic in the placement of the very first declared right.

Coming back to our freedom of speech, has anyone else ever wondered why the founders considered this so important? For me, this goes far beyond the simple freedom to speak one’s mind or to write one’s thoughts. It goes deeper than this – way deeper. How so?

Think about it – what is speech but the formation of words and what are words but the expression of thoughts and ideas? Dig deeper. This is basic. It delves into the very nature of human existence. It is what rises us up to the top of all earthly life and sets us apart from every other living thing.

Words. Thoughts. Ideas. Along with the capacity to express them, the very ability to form them are crucial to our lives. Ideas are far more powerful than any weapon conceived by mankind. Our nation was established by them. Wars are always fought because of them. All of our lives… our very existence centers around the words we think, say and act upon.

The most feared weapon in the world is not the “Bomb” – it is the TRUTH! It is the bell that cannot be unrung. This is why the controllers and their media minions first attack all truth with lies, then move to silence all who oppose them. They know their falsehoods cannot stand against truth. They know once they are exposed for the frauds they are they cannot easily regain the trust they gambled. This is why they are determined to shut down all dissidence. This is why our freedom of speech is prominently included in the FIRST amendment!

This truth reveals another potent truth – words are powerful. Scripture is called The Word of God. Our Constitution consists of words. A picture may say 1,000 words, but a few words, properly crafted into a meaningful phrase can change the world. Consider the following words:

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

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

Those of you who believe know exactly how powerful these words are. Those who reject them shall one day find out.

First Amendment or not, our freedom to worship God Almighty, our freedom of speech is not something granted by men. Nor can mere men take these away. They do not have such authority! No matter what happens in this nation, no matter what nation you are a citizen or subject of, your freedom is granted to you by a Holy God in Heaven. You need not ask permission.

In this nation, these United States, the controllers will attempt to shut down anyone who speaks the truth. They already ARE doing this and making inroads. Speak the truth – this will overwhelm them. They cannot stand against a Holy God. They are powerless against the truth. The controllers know this and this is why they are making every effort to eradicate our First Amendment rights. No matter what happens God will have the final say. It is written.

God bless,

Independence Day Revisited…

Today we commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The full text of this Declaration is included below. Many of the colonists grievances do not apply today. No “king” denies our liberty. In his place we’ve established “our betters” to do what no king could do… rule us with an iron fist.

Our forefathers bravely put forth the radical concept of self-government. They put documents in place – the Articles of Confederation and later the Constitution for the United States of America to secure the rights and liberties of the newly freed thirteen sovereign states while providing to include additional states in their merry band.

Their vision was only partly successful. While our nation itself thrived economically, partially due to the enormous resources inherent in this continent and partly due to a relatively free economy.

Then greed and the money men took over. They bought politicians. They used their influence to smash competitors with regulation and rape the citizens via taxation – the very things the colonists fought and died over.

Now the money men – the controllers have this nation in a death grip. Many no longer even live here. Most others can relocate elsewhere at their convenience – all the while exacting pounds of flesh from us citizens.

Laughably, some promote racial wars by demanding reparations for the slavery in our past. Why is this laughable? Because we are slaves of the controllers in the here and now. They own us and they know it.

Remember our Independence. I am sorry to say, true independence is not even something anyone alive today can remember. It was stolen from us long ago.

All is not lost. While some are sure to mock me, we do still have the framework to reclaim our independence – our right to self-government. To accomplish this we need to stand up as citizens and demand a return to our constitutional republic.

Throw out the money men – dissolve the political parties – dismantle the onerous deep state and start fresh.

God bless,

Andy

The following text is a transcription of the Stone Engraving of the parchment Declaration of Independence (the document on display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum.) The spelling and punctuation reflects the original.

In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

General Flynn Agrees

Thanks to ZeroHedge.com, I saw this op-ed from recently vindicated General Flynn.  While we may differ on certain points and approaches, we have very common ground on the principles!

Exclusive from Gen. Flynn: If We Don’t Act, 2% of the People Are About To Control the Other 98%

Many (okay two of the three) readers here probably know what the III % means – the estimation our own Revolutionary War was fought and won by a mere 3% of the population. General Flynn’s article somewhat mirrors this concept while turning the tables in favor of the radicals… or rather their controllers. No doubt there are those on both sides familiar with the tools used to seize control in many circumstances.

Once again I say there is a better way – a peaceful way. We have the one tool required to not only restore our nation but to actually establish a true constitutional republic. This tool is our Constitution. It is our basis for self-government. However WE must learn to use this tool effectively if we are to bring our nation back from the brink of utter destruction.

God bless,

Fake It Until You… Break It!

If you are trying to make some sense of all of this Wuhan Flu pandemic – this could be your first mistake.

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.

For over 100 years and then some, this nation has prospered in spite of the controllers best efforts to stem the flow. While it is true the controllers have not actually tried to shut down our economy – they have indeed thrown wrench after wrench in the works to slow us down. They call this “progress”. As per usual, they say one thing while intending the exact opposite. Consider:

The controllers exact part of nearly every transaction citizens make – i.e. they “tax” everything.

The controllers continue to exact money from citizens for possessing what they’ve bought and paid for in the form of personal and real property taxes, inventory taxes, license fees, etc.

The controllers “redistribute” our wealth or so it seems. From my perspective, much of this wealth is “redistributed” into their own pockets.

The controllers control citizens and thus our prosperity by regulating everything – licenses and permits along with mountains of rules and regulations micromanaging everything we do. I remember seeing print on a can of paint saying “this color is OSHA approved”. Seriously. Some controllers at said letter agency deemed it prudent to “approve” the color black.

I said it before – if we want to supercharge our economy we need do only one thing – get governments out of our way! WE will do the rest!

Now back to the circumstances at hand: this pandemic craziness. Everything I see points to one thing: the controllers are totally bent on destroying our nation. Logically, this makes ZERO sense! In spite of all of their efforts to the contrary, our nation can bounce back from this devastation to generate trillions of dollars worth of profits for the controllers. Why kill this goose laying golden eggs? Why!?

Go back and read John 10:10 again. The controllers do not want prosperity. They want control. Controllers control. It is what they do because it is their nature. While this makes sense to me, I find no logic at all in their desire.

Once one understands how the nature of the controllers differs from the nature of the rest of us, things become more clear. The controllers’ hearts are ruled by hate. They especially hate anyone they do not control and they particularly hate anyone not under their control who also prospers. Control is everything to the controllers. Nothing else matters. Thus they are ruthless as they pursue their passion.

Consider the pandemic nonsense from this perspective. It is all about control. The truth means nothing to the controllers. Facts mean nothing. WE mean nothing. They care not one whit about our nation, our prosperity, our lives. ALL they care about is control – at any cost.

Already they tighten nooses around our necks. They are implementing tracking applications to gain previously unheard of detail about our daily lives. They are pushing plans to clamp down on everything we do. Why? To ensure we comply with every edict they issue. Their goal is to control our every move, our every word, even our every thought. Will they succeed? Who knows? They are determined to so.

Keep in mind, they are not stupid. They know full well this nation is too large – too populous – to efficiently control. This is the reason for their desire to reduce world population by 80%. This is not speculation – this is a fact I, and many others, have documented before. It would be inaccurate to say they want to kill you. “They” don’t know you, nor do “they”. You are nothing to them – a bug on their windshield. It only grieves them to exert the effort to wipe your remains from their view. Rather, you are, at most, an inconvenience.

While I have no doubt the controllers find some amusement pushing buttons to see how we react – much like a child torturing an insect – all of this merely distracts them. Reality dictates they must, after all, bide their time until they meet their ultimate goal of total control. Why not amuse themselves by exercising sheer power from their lofty perches?

Do not be fooled. They will not stop until they have destroyed anything and everything standing in their way. They are relentless. They have to be because should the smoke clear enough for us dirt people to see the playing field… we might just realize just how phony the controllers’ “control” really is. In fact they have none. Not really. They will not and can not until they have us all disarmed with all the tools of forceful compliance directed at our heads. By then they will have declared the Constitution of the United States null and void with the muscle to enforce their decree.

Their goal is to steal our birthright and they are doing right under our noses. They have no compunction about killing us or destroying our nation to reach their brass ring. Right now, the controllers rule by smoke and mirrors. They aim to fake it until they break it.

God bless,

Andy

 

 

The Wuhan Flu Con Revealed

As I posted before, we’ve all been conned. It is not the first time. It will not be the last. This latest Wuhan Flu pandemic – doozy as it was – is not the end. I’ll get right to the basics here:

First, the slight of hand the con artists used – fear.

“We are all gonna die if we do not act right now!”

Nobody said that outright but it was implied and is still implied right down the line. Here is what they did:

They isolated us. They re engineered society – taking the “social” aspect right out of the equation. All for nought. THIS was their illusion. The reality?

Whatever you want to call it, Wuhan Kung Flu was and is a bug. A virus. Not only was it not a very dangerous bug but it was and is treatable. Like any other bug, if we all had just went about our business as usual, the bug would have gotten around. Some would get sick. Some would die. We would all eventually get over it.

The response to this bug was engineered panic – social engineering that is. The pandemic itself is nothing compared to the propaganda and fear mongering promoting it to a world-wide crisis. In short… we’ve been had.

The question is what will we do about it?

If all indications of previous con games played on us dirt people… nothing. We will adjust to the new rules, regulations and tyrannical decrees and get on with our lives. In this we seem to be unshakable – and malleable. I hate to say it but we yell and point to the “sheeple” and all the while three fingers are pointing right back to us.

Face it folks – the communists-antifa “peaceful” protestor types have got more balls than most of us whining about the libtards. While I do not agree at all with their methods – they ARE taking action. Meanwhile, we point to a very few videos of those who defend themselves from brutal leftist attacks while staying safely smug behind our monitors.

What DO I advocate? The same thing I’ve encouraged all along. Accept the stewardship given to you as a citizen by God Almighty Himself. Descend on town and county meetings. Replay the 2A sanctuary movement again and again and again.

If you truly want to see improvement, YOU have to take responsibility for your own rights as a citizen. YOU have to assert YOUR authority. Self-government via a constitutional republic requires active participation.

Those of us born or naturalized into this nation have rights AND duties as citizens. To those citizens who also claim Christ as savior, I will speak plainly. Just as the blood of our savior Jesus the Messiah shed as payment for our sins is not to be taken lightly, neither is the grace of citizenship in this nation. You are born again of God’s spirit with eternal life AND you have the privilege of self-rule. Few in this world have the opportunities and blessings bestowed upon us. Do not let them go to waste.

Turn now to our Heavenly Father. Ask if I speak the truth. Ask what He would have you do. He is faithful. He WILL answer!

God bless,

Andy

Wuhan Flu & Social Engineering

First, let is set aside any ideas of “conspiracy”. Granted there is a lot of indications there is far more to this entire pandemic than meets the eye – including planning and forethought long before most of us even heard of “Wuhan”.  I’d rather deal with the social engineering concept today.

What is “social engineering”? This is a relatively modern term in my understanding. I first heard of it back when I read some books on hacking. No, I wasn’t trying to learn how to hack computers, etc. I WAS and AM interested in prevention and thus felt a need to learn what to avoid. What did I learn?

The easiest and most preferred “hack” was based on social engineering. In other works – talking some human into letting you into the system. If you think about it – this technique has a variety of applications far beyond the computer word.

Con games are based on the same concepts. In fact, “social engineering” could be said to be another word for a con. What else fits the mold?

Propaganda. Advertising. Politics. In fact, what we know as “the media” could be said to be elevated from a social engineering “tool” to simply another form of social engineering in and of itself. Either way, how does all of this fit into the Wuhan Flu pandemic? Think about it.

Consider the “New Normal” catch phrase. Does not the very phrase intimate a concerted effort to shift one’s thinking of what is “normal”? “Social distancing” is another one.

Fact is, this pandemic is just ONE social engineering con thrust upon us. “White privilege” is another one. It has superseded the old “affirmative action” concept. How about “climate change”? Oh yeah. If you think about this you could come up with a rather large list of cons. Or you could look at most any political platform. Politicians are the biggest con artists around. Note: sometimes they palm themselves off as “activists”. Do not be fooled.

Back to Wuhan Flu – the long and the short of it is… we’ve been conned. The controllers are “social engineering” us. This is not the first or last con – just the latest one.

In my next post I will detail exactly how this latest shell game was played. You will be surprised and dismayed at how easily we were all fooled (myself included) by the controllers’ slight of hand.

God bless,

Andy

Boo Hoo – Grrgle Defunds Zero Hedge

Surprised? Really?

For the record this is a major part of why The Liberty Coalition came to being. Maybe it is a terrible name with awful connotations… I don’t know.

All I can say is I meant the name to stand for a loose association of liberty-minded bloggers and publishers. So far, it hasn’t worked out that way. My “vision” seems to have turned into a blog – a platform from where I, and I alone, spout off my ideas on liberty. Such was not intended.

Back to ZeroHedge and Grrrgle. Sorry if it sounds like sour grapes. It is not really. As a “liberty guy” I’m not into coercing anyone to do anything. I made it available and the only takers appear to be the growing army of spammers in my comment box. So be it. You cannot say I didn’t try.

Notice you have never seen Grrrgle ads on this site. This is by design. Yes they sometimes offer a nice carrot but ooooh! that stick! Screw Grrrgle. Fact is another goal of TLC (that is shorthand for The Liberty Coalition) is to end-around Grrgles search engine, among others. They are the  8,000 lb gorilla in the room. In their controlling peabrains what they say goes. Period. That’s not liberty, that is tyranny. Digital tyranny.

I do not care if any other publisher joins my efforts. I’d be just as happy if they snubbed their noses at me and did their own thing. THAT is liberty.

I like ZeroHedge. I visit the site every day. I refer to them often. I never would have known they existed if I depended on search engines like Grrrgle. When are we going to learn this?

So, no, I am not going to cry over ZeroHedge’s plight. Tyler should know better. There are lots of ways to monetize a site. Go find one.

The other part of this is we all need to extricate ourselves from tyrannical systems whether they be political, technical or something else. It does not good to whine over the FB’s, the Twits, the Grrgles of this work. I’m reminded of the phrase of a dog turning back unto it’s own vomit.  Yes, I use all of these to some extent but I refuse to depend on any of them.

The bottom line for me is, I want to continue to build a network of liberty-minded bloggers, publishers and other individuals and groups. It need not be the only network. As a matter of fact, the more the merrier.

Once again that word “diversification” comes into play.

God bless,

Andy

Are We There Yet?

The first question I’d expect you to ask is… “Where is there?” For the sake of argument lets call “there” The point of no return.

For tickles and grins here’s a great song by Kansas by the same name:

Why ask this?

Let’s see just recently we’ve seen how a corrupt administration used a pile of three-letter agencies and “the law” to spy on American citizens including a president-elect.

We’ve seen sitting US Senators charged with profiting from insider information.

We’ve seen strong evidence of systemic abuse by former public officials while they are in positions of political power.

We’ve seen current public officials defy the Constitution of the United States and their own state constitutions by issuing all kinds of unconstitutional decrees.

Today, I saw an article vial Zerohedge.com detailing

EXCLUSIVE: Bill Gates Negotiated $100 Billion Contact Tracing Deal With Democratic Congressman Sponsor of Bill Six Months BEFORE Coronavirus Pandemic

This last bit especially makes me wonder… are we THERE yet? Will we, as a nation, bow down to the likes of  these controllers to allow them the power to follow us everywhere? To spy on us anywhere we go?

Even if this goes away… do you really think it means a “win” for liberty? It does not.

Long ago in my first sales job as a stockbroker – i.e. a glorified salesman for a stock of the month club – part of my job consisted of “qualifying” the prospect. In essence I had to find out how much money he had to invest. I naively asked:  “How much of this should I go for?”

My boss said “ALL of it!  Then settle for as much as you can get.”

At some point I realized how wrong this approach was, but that is beside the point. The point here is this is exactly the strategy of the controllers is… always. They set their sights on far more than they know they can get, then they “settle” for less. And they always come back for more!

Now… suppose we actually see some “huge uproar” concerning Bill Gates and company. Don’t count on it but just suppose… what do you think will happen? Yep. The controllers will “settle” for a lesser plan. Don’t worry they’ll be back for more and more and more.

My question to YOU is… are you ready to put a stop to this nonsense? The controllers have NO RIGHTS to our liberty. None. WE have FULL AUTHORITY under our constitution to govern ourselves. If WE do not like some law, rule or decree – we have EVERY RIGHT  to tell our representatives to back off – to either cease and desist entirely or find another way to achieve a goal we find worthy.

We have stewardship of this nation and thus WE have the RESPONSIBILITY to ensure our representatives and our public employees follow the law of the land – the Constitution. This means the citizens of this nation should be insisting those public employees bent on usurping power and authority they DO NOT HAVE be brought up on charges of treason. In my eyes their attempts are attempts to suborn the law of the land and institute their own version of government in place of the framework laid by our respective constitutions.

Their goal is obvious: replace our constitutional republic with their own lawless rule. If we do not act and act quickly we will pass the point of no return. I ask again…

ARE WE THERE YET?

God bless,

Andy
