OP-ED: Halt Vaccine Passports! It's illegal, medical apartheid

It is very important that people understand what is happening here. The intention is to introduce vaccine passports everywhere. But this is a disguise. It's a world's first digital common-format, globally-interoperable ID system with an editable health flag (vaccinated Y or N).

It makes no one safer. If you're vaccinated, you're protected & are not made safer by knowing others immune status.

As in Israel, you will be compelled to present a valid VaxPass in order to access defined facilities or access services. No VaxPass, you're denied.

This system only needs 50%+ of the adult population to start up because of its huge, coercive power on the unvaccinated.

It's illegal, medical apartheid.

If they succeed, it won't help you to refuse. They'll move on, leaving that minority behind.

A VaxPass System like this will give to those controlling the database & it's algorithms TOTALITARIAN TYRANNY over us all.

The ONLY way to stop this biosecurity nightmare is to NOT GET VACCINATED FOR NON-MEDICAL REASONS!!!

I fear that, if our adversaries gain this absolute control, they will use it to harm the population. There's no limit to the evil which will flow from this strategic goal.

DO NOT ALLOW THIS SYSTEM TO START UP, because it's unstoppable afterwards.

One example: your VaxPass pings, instructing you to attend for your 3rd or 4th or 5th booster or variant vaccine. If you don't, your VaxPass will expire & you'll become an out-person, unable to access your own life.

How much choice do you have?

It's none. You are controlled. Forever.


PLEASE share this widely, on every platform you use.

Thank you,
Dr Mike Yeadon

List of Videos EXPOSING COVID Vax; See some of these BEFORE you Take any shot!

Nation News Desk 10 March 2021 Hits: 10470

List of videos exposing covid / vaccine

NOTE : Obviously you don't need to watch them all. Just watch as many as you need to feel convinced...

If your job is pressuring you to get the vaccine then perhaps you should see a private GP doctor, get a doctors note for covid related mental health problems, and go on sick leave for a while. This is a fair thing to do since the medical tyranny of being forced to take dangerous substances is not acceptable. We believe things may shift soon as many world events are taking place, and the pressure to take the vaccine may subside in due course.

Think twice before taking COVID-19 gene therapy ‘vaccine'. What to do if you have already had the so-called ‘vaccine'.

 Sun 9:25 am +00:00, 31 Jan 2021  

posted by Tapestry

  • Anyone with an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease, chronic Lyme disease, anybody with an acquired immune deficiency from any pathogens and environmental toxins, those are the people who will be killed, murdered, by this vaccine. ~ Judy A. Mikovits, Ph.D.
  • The COVID-19 vaccine really isn't a vaccine in the medical definition of a vaccine. It's more accurately an experimental gene therapy that could prematurely kill large amounts of the population and disable exponentially more
  • Since mRNA normally rapidly degrades, it must be complexed with lipids or polymers. COVID-19 vaccines use PEGylated lipid nanoparticles, and PEG is known to cause anaphylaxis
  • Free mRNA can signal danger to your immune system and drive inflammatory diseases. As such, injecting synthetic thermostable mRNA (mRNA that is resistant to breaking down) is highly problematic as it can fuel chronic, long-term inflammation
  • Many commonly reported side effects from the COVID-19 gene therapy "vaccines" appear to be caused by brain inflammation
  • Anyone with an inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease or chronic Lyme and those with acquired immune deficiency/dysfunction from any microbial pathogen, brain trauma or environmental toxin are at high risk of dying from COVID-19 mRNA vaccines

In April 2020, I interviewed Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., about the potential role played by human gammaretroviruses in COVID-19. Mikovits is a molecular biologist1 and researcher, and was the founding research director of the Whittemore Peterson Institute in Nevada.

Her book, "Plague of Corruption," ended up being a No. 1 best seller on the lists of The New York Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal in 2020. Her new book, "Ending Plague: A Scholar's Obligation in an Age of Corruption," will hopefully do just as well. It's available for preorder on Amazon.

She may be one of the most censored researchers on the planet at this point, thanks in no small part to her participation in the documentary "Plandemic," which went viral in a big way (plandemicseries.com).

Case in point: YouTube suspended our account for one week as soon as we uploaded today's interview - even though the video was UNLISTED and not available for public viewing yet. Even worse, Mikovits' third and most recent book, "The Case Against Masks: Ten Reasons Why Mask Use Should Be Limited," is so heavily censored, no one can buy it.

"I don't even have a copy," she says. "I'm sitting here with two copies of the other books but I can't even buy it. What the book sellers did, like Amazon, is they bought them all up from Skyhorse, the publisher, and now they won't ship them out of the warehouse."

Clearly, Mikovits is considered a serious threat to the technocratic status quo, and once you hear what she has to say about COVID-19 vaccines - which as you'll see is a complete misnomer - you may start to understand why.

COVID-19 Vaccines Aren't Real Vaccines

The COVID-19 vaccine really isn't a vaccine in the medical definition of a vaccine. It does not improve your immune response to the infection, nor does not limit you from getting the infection. It's really an experimental gene therapy that could prematurely kill large amounts of the population and disable exponentially more.

"I'm just beside myself with anger over this synthetic gene therapy, this chemical poison, and what they're doing worldwide," Mikovits says. "We're already seeing deaths from this shot. It's illegal. It shouldn't be done. It should be stopped right now. It should have never been allowed to happen, yet we see it being forced on the most vulnerable populations."

Indeed, news and social media reports suggest recipients are starting to drop like flies. Many die of unknown causes within days, sometimes hours of getting the first or second shot.

Baseball legend Hank Aaron passed away two weeks after receiving the vaccine, yet this was not ever mentioned in his New York Times obituary. Surely, had he tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, he would have been declared a COVID-19 fatality, whether the virus actually had anything to do with it or not.

But when it comes to the vaccine, even eyebrow-raising timing is dismissed as coincidental and irrelevant. Now all of a sudden, old people dying shortly after vaccination are shrugged off with the excuse that they're old and could have died any day anyway. Old people dying with SARS-CoV-2, however, must be stopped at any cost. Funny how that works.

 

The Problem With Synthetic RNA

The messenger RNA (mRNA) used in many COVID-19 vaccines are not natural. They're synthetic. Since naturally produced mRNA rapidly degrades, it must be complexed with lipids or polymers to prevent this from happening. COVID-19 vaccines use PEGylated lipid nanoparticles, and PEG is known to cause anaphylaxis.2 Lipid nanoparticles may also cause other problems.

In 2017, Stat News discussed Moderna's challenges in developing an mRNA-based drug for Crigler-Najjar, a condition that can lead to jaundice, muscle degeneration and brain damage:3

"In order to protect mRNA molecules from the body's natural defenses, drug developers must wrap them in a protective casing. For Moderna, that meant putting its Crigler-Najjar therapy in nanoparticles made of lipids.

And for its chemists, those nanoparticles created a daunting challenge: Dose too little, and you don't get enough enzyme to affect the disease; dose too much, and the drug is too toxic for patients.

From the start, Moderna's scientists knew that using mRNA to spur protein production would be a tough task, so they scoured the medical literature for diseases that might be treated with just small amounts of additional protein.

‘And that list of diseases is very, very short,' said the former employee ... Crigler-Najjar was the lowest-hanging fruit. Yet Moderna could not make its therapy work ... The safe dose was too weak, and repeat injections of a dose strong enough to be effective had troubling effects on the liver in animal studies."

However, if they call their drugs vaccines, they can bypass the safety studies. All of a sudden, they expect us to believe that all of these safety issues have been resolved? Another problem is related to how long the mRNA remains stable in your system. It's encased in nanolipid to prevent it from degrading too rapidly, but what happens if the mRNA degrades too slowly, or not at all?

The idea behind mRNA vaccines is that by tricking your body into creating the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, your immune system will produce antibodies in response. But what happens when you turn your body into a viral protein factory, thus keeping antibody production activated on a continual basis with no ability to shut down?

In addition, your body sees these synthetic particles as non-self and much of the perpetual antibody response will be autoantibodies attacking your own tissues. Mikovits explains:

"Normally, messenger RNA is not free in your body because it's a danger signal. As a molecular biologist, the central dogma of molecular biology is that our genetic code, DNA, is transcribed, written, into the messenger RNA. That messenger RNA is translated into protein, or used in a regulatory capacity ... to regulate gene expression in cells.

So, taking a synthetic messenger RNA and making it thermostable - making it not break down - [is problematic]. We have lots of enzymes (RNAses and DNAses) that degrade free RNA and DNA because, again, those are danger signals to your immune system. They literally drive inflammatory diseases.

Now you've got PEG, PEGylated and polyethylene glycol, and a lipid nanoparticle that will allow it to enter every cell of the body and change the regulation of our own genes with this synthetic RNA, part of which actually is the message for the gene syncytin ...

Syncytin is the endogenous gammaretrovirus envelope that's encoded in the human genome ... We know that if syncytin ... is expressed aberrantly in the body, for instance in the brain, which these lipid nanoparticles will go into, then you've got multiple sclerosis.

The expression of that gene alone enrages microglia, literally inflames and dysregulates the communication between the brain microglia, which are critical for clearing toxins and pathogens in the brain and the communication with astrocytes.

It dysregulates not only the immune system, but also the endocannabinoid system, which is the dimmer switch on inflammation. We've already seen multiple sclerosis as an adverse event in the clinical trials, and we're being lied to: ‘Oh, those people had that [already].' No, they didn't.

We also see myalgic encephalomyelitis. Inflammation of the brain and the spinal cord, which is [associated with] exogenous gammaretroviruses, the XMRVs."

These High-Risk Groups Should Avoid COVID-19 Vaccine

According to Mikovits, research shows 4% to 6% of Americans have already been infected with XMRV gammaretroviruses via contaminated vaccines and blood supply for more than three decades, which is driving a number of chronic health conditions. Now, these synthetic gene therapies (the so-called COVID-19 vaccines) will further add to the chronic disease burden by triggering myalgic encephalomyelitis.

Anyone with an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease, chronic Lyme disease, anybody with an acquired immune deficiency from any pathogens and environmental toxins, those are the people who will be killed, murdered, by this vaccine. ~ Judy A. Mikovits, Ph.D.

Making matters worse, the synthetic mRNA also has an HIV envelope expressed in it, which can cause immune dysregulation. "This is a nightmare," Mikovits says. "I'm angry, as this should never be allowed."

As we discussed in previous interviews, SARS-CoV-2 has been engineered in the lab with gain-of-function research that included introducing the HIV envelope into the spike protein.

Mikovits' hypothesis is that those who are most susceptible to severe neurological side effects and death from the COVID-19 vaccines are those who have previously been injected with XMRVs, borrelia, babesia, mycoplasma, through contaminated vaccines, resulting in chronic disease. (Her book, "Plague of Corruption," details the science and history of XMRVs, which is a fascinating read.)

"Yes, absolutely," she says. "That's one of our hypotheses. But also, anyone with an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease, chronic Lyme disease, anybody with an acquired immune deficiency from any pathogens and environmental toxins.

Those are the people who will be killed, murdered, by this vaccine, and Anthony Fauci knows it ... I can't even sleep [because of] how evil this is. This is so deadly, I can't scream it loud enough from the rooftops."

The chart below lists 35 diseases associated with XMRV infection. If you have any of these, you may want to think long and hard before you line up for an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, as your chances of severe side effects or death are likely far higher than someone who does not have any of these diseases.

 

This is not a complete list. There may be many other conditions that can put you into a high-risk category. One example is idiopathic thrombocytopenia (ITP), a deadly bleeding disorder. According to Mikovits, her work shows 30% of all ITP are associated with XMRVs.

Interestingly, one example is the 58-year-old Florida doctor who recently got the COVID-19 vaccine and died from sudden onset of ITP two weeks later. Dr. Jerry L. Spivak, an expert on blood disorders at Johns Hopkins University, told The New York Times "it is a medical certainty" that Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine caused the man's death.4,5 Pfizer, of course, denies any connection.

Genetic Alterations May Last for Life

So, just how long will the synthetic RNA in COVID-19 vaccines be maintained within your body, causing your cells to produce this aberrant protein? Mikovits believes it will escape degradation for months, years, maybe even for life in some cases.

All of this is eerily reminiscent of previous attempts to create a coronavirus vaccine, all of which failed due to the vaccines causing paradoxical immune reactions, or antibody-dependent immune enhancement. While the animals appeared to have antibodies against the virus, and should theoretically have been protected, when they were exposed to wild coronavirus, they got severely ill and most died.

Such failures may be why so many vaccine makers decided to use mRNA rather than following conventional vaccine development strategies, but the end result is likely going to be the same or worse.

"I have a 41-year-old daughter-in-law with a very aggressive colon cancer. We're seeing an explosion of chronic disease and these patients are not being discouraged from getting the vaccine. In fact, they're being scared by physicians into getting it.

How do we wake people up? Is it going to take millions of Americans and people worldwide dying? Will Hank Aaron dying help the Black community? ... We know the mechanisms. We know that Blacks and Hispanics can't degrade RNA viruses as rapidly as Caucasians. We know that from studies all the way back to MMR. The MMR vaccine is associated with ITP. It says it right there on the package insert.

If you have a single nucleotide polymorphism in one of those RNases called RNase-L, you are more likely to get aggressive breast cancers, prostate cancers and other cancers from an XMRV infection (So why inject mRNA of syncytin, a gamma retrovirus envelope?)."

Breakthrough Genomics Could Save Millions of Lives

According to Mikovits, one solution is to use functional genomics technologies like Breakthrough Genomics, a company which uses machine learning to look at full genome sequences to determine which single nucleotide polymorphisms in ACE2 receptors, antiviral pathways like RNASEL and Interferons can make a person most susceptible to harm from these gene therapy "vaccines."

"We have the technology to see who's susceptible to severe effects. It will be a huge part of the population," Mikovits says.

While one size clearly doesn't fit all in any vaccine strategy, forcing a gene therapy on an entire population when it can be predicted that millions will die and develop deadly diseases like ITP is simply unconscionable. Yet anyone who dares speak about this, as Mikovits knows, risks having their careers and lives destroyed.

Symptoms of COVID-19 Vaccine Damage

Many of the symptoms now being reported are suggestive of neurological damage. They have severe dyskinesia (impairment of voluntary movement), ataxia (lack of muscle control) and intermittent or chronic seizures. Many cases detailed in personal videos on social media are quite shocking.

Equally shocking is that these videos are quickly removed by the social media platforms, ostensibly for violating some term of service. It's hard to fathom how a personal experience can be considered "false information."

"What is causing this is the neuroinflammation," Mikovits says. "It's the brain on fire. You're going to see tics, you're going to see Parkinsonian disease, you're going to see ALS, you're going to see things like this developing at extremely rapid rates, and it's inflammation of the brain."

Side effects are also suggestive of a dysregulated innate immune response and a disrupted endocannabinoid system, which acts as a dimmer switch on your immune system.

"We see mast cell activation syndromes (MCAS). The clinical symptoms are going to be the inflammatory diseases. We hear everybody calling it ‘long haul COVID' - the extreme, profound, crippling fatigue, the inability to produce energy from your mitochondria.

It's not long haul COVID. It's exactly what it always was - myalgic encephalomyelitis, inflammation of the brain and the spinal cord. What they're intentionally doing is killing off [certain] populations, which they previously injured."

Another common side effect from the vaccine we're seeing is allergic reactions, including anaphylactic shock. A likely culprit in this is PEG, which an estimated 70% of Americans are allergic to. "These instantaneous effects are almost certainly the PEG and that lipid nano particle, the toxic particle that's being injected," Mikovits says.

In the longer term, she suspects we'll see a significant uptick in migraines, tics, Parkinson's disease, microvascular disorders, different cancers, including prostate cancer, severe pain syndromes like fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, bladder problems, kidney disease, psychosis, neurodegenerative diseases such as Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) and sleep disorders, including narcolepsy. In young children, autism-like symptoms are likely to develop as well, she thinks.

We'll End Up Killing the Most Susceptible

Aside from the chronic diseases listed earlier, others who are at high risk from these COVID-19 gene therapies include those who have gotten seasonal influenza vaccines, Blacks and Hispanics. Blacks and Hispanics are particularly at risk for antibody-dependent immune enhancement, in particular, due to genetics. Tragically, these vaccines are given to the most susceptible under the guise of racial and social justice.

"Johns Hopkins laid out that plan a few months ago to vaccinate ethnic minorities and the mentally challenged first. If your brain is already on fire, if you already have a neural inflammatory disease, why in the world would you inject this neural inflammatory toxin? You're killing the people who are the most susceptible."

Women of childbearing age may also be at risk for infertility, as syncytin (the gammaretrovirus envelope encoded in the human genome the expression of which can be dysregulated by the synthetic syncytin RNA in the vaccine) is required for proper fusion of the placenta in the uterus and implantation of the egg. Indeed, the World Health Organization is now saying pregnant women should not get the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines due to reports of late-term miscarriages.6

What to Do if You Got the Vaccine and Are Having Problems

The primary reason why I wanted to interview Mikovits was to find out her recommendations for those who chose to get the vaccine and now regret it. Interestingly, what I learned is you use the same strategies that you would use to treat the actual SARS-CoV-2 infection.

I've written many articles over the past year detailing simple strategies to improve your immune system, and with a healthy immune system, you'll get through it without incident even if you end up getting sick. Below, I'll summarize some of the strategies you can use both to prevent COVID-19 and address any side effects you may encounter from the vaccine.

First of all, you'll want to eat a "clean," ideally organic diet. Avoid processed foods of all kinds, as they are loaded with damaging omega-6 linoleic acid that wrecks your mitochondrial function. Also consider nutritional ketosis and time-restricted eating, both of which will help you optimize your metabolic machinery and mitochondrial function. As noted by Mikovits:

"We have to think about detoxing metal, we have to think about glyphosate ... We have to prevent inflammation in all tissue sites and we have to keep our immune system healthy ... You're going to want to be burning ketones instead [of sugar] for the neuroinflammation, so you're going to want to get into ketosis and take the stress off the mTOR pathway."

With regard to glyphosate, a simple way to block glyphosate uptake is to take glycine. Approximately 3 grams, about half a teaspoon, a few times a day should be sufficient, along with an organic diet, so that you're not adding more glyphosate with each meal.

To improve detoxification, I recommend activating your natural glutathione production with molecular hydrogen tablets. All of these strategies should help improve your resilience against SARS-CoV-2, and may even help your body detoxify if you've made the mistake of getting this experimental gene therapy.

Another helpful strategy is to maintain a neutral pH. You want your pH to be right around 7, which you can measure with an inexpensive urine strip. The lower your pH, the more acidic you are.

A simple way to raise your pH if it's too acidic (and most people are) is to take one-fourth teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or potassium bicarbonate in water a few times a day. Improving your pH will improve the resiliency of your immune system and reduce the mineral loss from your bones, thereby reducing your risk of osteoporosis.

Helpful Supplements

Nutritional supplementation can also be helpful. Among the most important are:

Vitamin D - Vitamin D supplements are readily available and one of the least expensive supplements on the market. All things considered, vitamin D optimization is likely the easiest and most beneficial strategy that anyone can do to minimize their risk of COVID-19 and other infections, and can strengthen your immune system in a matter of a few weeks.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) - NAC is a precursor to reduced glutathione, which appears to play a crucial role in COVID-19. According to one literature analysis,7 glutathione deficiency may actually be associated with COVID-19 severity, leading the author to conclude that NAC may be useful both for its prevention and treatment.

Zinc - Zinc plays a very important role in your immune system's ability to ward off viral infections. Like vitamin D, zinc helps regulate your immune function8 - and a combination of zinc with a zinc ionophore, like hydroxychloroquine or quercetin, was in 2010 shown to inhibit SARS coronavirus in vitro. In cell culture, it also blocked viral replication within minutes.9Importantly, zinc deficiency has been shown to impair immune function.10

Melatonin - Boosts immune function in a variety of ways and helps quell inflammation. Melatonin may also prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection by recharging glutathione11 and enhancing vitamin D synthesis, among other things.

Vitamin C - A number of studies have shown vitamin C can be very helpful in the treatment of viral illnesses, sepsis and ARDS,12 all of which are applicable to COVID-19. Its basic properties include anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, antithrombotic and antiviral activities. At high doses, it actually acts as an antiviral drug, actively inactivating viruses. Vitamin C also works synergistically with quercetin.13

Quercetin - A powerful immune booster and broad-spectrum antiviral, quercetin was initially found to provide broad-spectrum protection against SARS coronavirus in the aftermath of the 2003 SARS epidemic,14,15,16 and evidence suggests it may be useful for the prevention and treatment of SARS-CoV-2 as well.

B vitamins - B vitamins can also influence several COVID-19-specific disease processes, including17 viral replication and invasion, cytokine storm induction, adaptive immunity and hypercoagulability.

Mikovits also recommends Type 1 interferons.

"The type 1 [interferon] - the primary source of interferon, alpha and beta - is the plasmacytoid dendritic cell. We know that's dysregulated in people with HIV, with XMRVs, with aberrant retroviral expression. Those people can't make interferon.

Type 1 interferons can be provided in a spray that you can spray directly into your throat, your nose, and that will give you the protection you need so that the virus doesn't [replicate]. It degrades it right away ... Should you feel cough or fever, headache, immediately up your Type 1 interferon. Take a couple of sprays of that per day prophylactically as well, and that will keep the viral load down.

We know [SARS-CoV-2] isn't a natural virus, we know this is lab-created, but it'll calm the expression, it'll degrade the RNA for those who can't degrade the RNA, and that's the job of Type 1 interferon - to have your macrophages be these little Pac-Men that simply degrade the viral mRNA."

Nebulized Peroxide - My Favorite Treatment Choice

My personal choice for the treatment of COVID-19 symptoms is nebulized peroxide. It's a home remedy I recommend everyone familiarize themselves with, as in many cases it can improve symptoms in mere hours. You can also use it as a preventive strategy if you know you've been exposed to someone who is ill.

Nebulizing hydrogen peroxide into your sinuses, throat and lungs is a simple, straightforward way to augment your body's natural expression of hydrogen peroxide to combat infections and can be used both prophylactically after known exposure to COVID-19 and as a treatment for mild, moderate and even severe illness.

Dr. David Brownstein, who has successfully treated over 100 COVID-19 patients with nebulized peroxide, published a case paper18 about this treatment in the July 2020 issue of Science, Public Health Policy and The Law. He also reviews its benefits in "How Nebulized Peroxide Helps Against Respiratory Infections."

Nebulized hydrogen peroxide is extremely safe, and all you need is a desktop nebulizer and food-grade hydrogen peroxide, which you'll need to dilute with saline to 0.1% strength. I recommend buying these items beforehand so that you have everything you need and can begin treatment at home at the first signs of a respiratory infection.

 

In the video above, I go over the basics of this treatment. Be sure to buy a nebulizer that plugs into an electrical outlet, as battery-driven ones are too low-powered to be truly effective. Also make sure your nebulizer comes with a face mask, not just a mouth piece. If it doesn't come with a face mask, you can pick one up separately. Just search Amazon for "nebulizer face mask for adults."

More Information

Hopefully, we've provided enough information to make you reconsider the COVID-19 gene therapy "vaccine." At bare minimum, do more research before you make your decision. The simple truth is you don't need it, so it's an unnecessary risk.

Trump's "Secret Weapon" Revealed: 14th Amendment Allows the President to Strip Electoral College Votes From States Supporting Censorship Against Voters; Enables Mass Arrests of Mayors, Governors & Judges Who Support BLM

The results of the 2020 election are already locked in: Trump wins, and he goes on to dismantle the corrupt, criminal Democrat party that tried (and failed) to destroy America and replace it with a communist regime of left-wing authoritarian tyrants.

How does Trump accomplish this?

President Trump has a "secret weapon" that I've been talking about for several months in Health Ranger Report podcasts on Brighteon.com. Until recently, I didn't know the exact nature of the secret weapon but was told by highly reliable sources that plans were already in place for Trump to defeat the Democrats and protect America from left-wing efforts to destroy this nation.

Now we've been able to confirm the content of this "secret weapon" that will be invoked to save America. It's the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

How the Fourteenth Amendment grants Trump the power to strip power away from treasonous domestic enemies

The Fourteenth Amendment - see the full text here - speaks directly to the powers of the federal government in dealing with officials, individuals and states that are engaged in "rebellion" against the United States of America.

Specifically, the Fourteenth Amendment grants the U.S. President the power to:

  • Arrest and indefinitely hold all public officials - including mayors, governors, state legislators, federal judges and law enforcement officials - who support "rebellion" against the United States or who have "given aid or comfort" to the enemies of America. (Section 3)
  • Eliminate House of Representatives positions for California and other states which are engaged in supporting Big Tech censorship platforms that are supporting rebellion against the United States of America and "abridging" the right of voting-aged citizens to participate in elections (via censorship). This implies that Electoral College votes would also be proportionally reduced in these states. (Section 2)
  • Eliminate all federal financial support for cities and states which are engaged in "insurrection or rebellion" against the United States. Section 3 specifically states that all such claims of federal money obligations to the states "shall be held illegal and void." (Section 4)

In essence, the Fourteenth Amendment grants American citizens "equal protection" under law, but for public officials or states which are engaged in "insurrection or rebellion" against the United States, those equal protections are revoked.

The Democrats already know all this, which is why they are pursuing a plan of election chaos, hoping to throw the entire election process into mass confusion, from which they plan to attempt an illegal coup to eliminate Trump from office and claim political power over the nation.

It should be rather obvious that at this very moment, California, Oregon, Washington, New York, Illinois and many other states are engaged in open rebellion against the United States, and that thousands of public officials within those states - mayors, governors, state legislators, police chiefs, etc. - are granting "aid or comfort" to the rebellion.

Under the Fourteenth Amendment, Trump merely needs to declare an insurrection, then he can have Mayor Lightfoot (Chicago), Mayor Wheeler (Portland), Mayor Durkan (Seattle) and even de Blasio (NYC) arrested and removed from office for violating their oaths of office. All those mayors (and many more) have taken an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, but they have violated their oaths, and under the Fourteenth Amendment that means they have nullified their own right to equal protection under the law.

Because they violated the U.S. Constitution and actively engaged in rebellion against the United States, in other words, they no longer enjoy the benefits of protections under the Constitution.

In addition, President Trump can eliminate congressional House seats for states that support rebellion, reducing their apportionment in the House. This means the states' Electoral College votes are also reduced, since those numbers are based on the number of House + Senate representatives for each state. This is based on the fact that these states are aiding the efforts of Big Teach to deny the rights of conservatives to participate in elections and voting, via politically-targeted censorship and voter suppression tactics now routinely used by Google, Facebook and other tech giants.

Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment specifically addresses voter suppression. It says that states which support the suppression of the ability of citizens to participate in voting will lose a portion of their own seats in Congress as well as Electoral College representation. Right now, the most overt and obvious voter suppression is being carried out by Big Tech platforms such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and YouTube, but similar censorship is also being undertaken by Microsoft, Apple, Vimeo and other tech giants. These companies are granted aid and comfort by numerous left-wing cities and states which often grant these companies property tax deferments and legal protections against legitimate investigations or prosecutions. In other words, states like California are actively protecting the Big Tech platforms that are suppressing voter participation via politically-targeted censorship. And this puts California in violation of Section 2 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Furthermore, President Trump can arrest and imprison all state and federal judges who have granted "aid or comfort" to insurrectionists by, for example, releasing them without charge after they were arrested for participating in riots or assaulting law enforcement officers. This means all Soros-funded District Attorneys and anti-America judges who have supported the insurrection can now be arrested and removed from office in one fell swoop.

Finally, Section 4 of the Fourteenth Amendment says, "...neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States." This means that cities and states which are suffering extreme economic losses due to their support for rioting and insurrection - such as Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, etc.) - cannot make any claim to federal money to reimburse them for their losses.

Their losses have been incurred as a result of their support for acts of insurrection and rebellion against the United States, and thus the United States has no obligation to reimburse them for such losses.

All this explains why Nancy Pelosi recently declared President Trump and the GOP to be "enemies of the state." This is the kind of language that would only be used by the Speaker of the House if they intend to attempt a violent coup followed by mass exterminations of their political opponents:

To initiate all this, Trump merely needs to officially declare an insurrection is under way

The reason Democrats went insane when Trump won the 2016 election is because holding the office of the presidency grants that person access to all the powers that the U.S. Constitution (and subsequent law) confers to the president. One of those powers is the power to declare an insurrection against the government. Such a declaration unleashes enormous powers of government which are then directed by the president against the domestic enemies which are waging war against the United States.

It is now rather obvious that we are already in that war, which is being waged by radical, extreme left-wing terrorists on a nightly basis. That war is supported and aided by the tech giants who censor all critics of the insurrectionists while aiding their acts of treason by allowing their platforms to be used to coordinate attacks against America.

Left-wing mayors, governors, judges, state representatives and other oath-swearing officials are also openly engaged in insurrection against the United States, and Trump's declaration of an open insurrection will enable them all to be arrested and removed from power.

This is what Trump must do to save America. It is unlikely that he will declare an insurrection before the election, however. This action seems likely to occur after the election.

Why Trump should declare an insurrection the day before the election

Strategically speaking, we urge President Trump to declare the insurrection before the election, because this would allow him to challenge the Electoral College votes from states which are supporting open rebellion against the United States (for all the reasons noted above). Even if Trump declares the insurrection just one day before the election, this grants him a basis from which he may challenge the Electoral College votes from insurrectionist states like California.

It also grants Trump the opportunity to arrest all the corrupt, left-wing officials the day after the election, shutting down their criminal attempts to counterfeit ballots after the fact that try to "win" by cheating in the weeks following the election itself. Trump can largely shut down that effort by simply declaring an insurrection and arresting all these treasonous actors the day after the election. They cannot counterfeit more ballots, after all, if they're sitting in jail.

This action would, of course, cause the radical Left to ignite an attempted nationwide kinetic war against the government, but at that point Trump is free to issue escalated engagement orders for federal law enforcement while even bringing in the U.S. military to halt all domestic enemies of the United States who are engaged in acts of treason or warfare against America (deploying the military to defeat domestic enemies of America does not violate Posse Comitatus).

Remember when I told you a year ago that when martial law comes to America, you will beg for it? Now you understand why. When the radical Left unleashes yet more violence, arson, looting, property destruction and anarchy across America, most reasonable Americans will fully support temporarily martial law and even military action on the streets of America to clean out the insurrectionists and restore civility to this nation.

Trump also has the NDAA, signed into law by Obama to imprison Americans who opposed the Clinton regime

The Fourteenth Amendment is the key to all this. But alongside it, don't forget that Barack Obama signed into law the NDAA which was intended to be handed over to Hillary Clinton as a weapon against patriots and conservatives. Now, that government weapon is in the hands of Trump, and he can deploy it against communist sympathizers and treasonous insurrectionists.

In fact, some of the FEMA camp activity being widely reported now, I believe, is actually all about gearing up these camps to house left-wing traitors who are arrested en masse in the coming months. These irrational, insane, lawless lunatics cannot be rehabilitated to rejoin civil society. At best, the nation will have to warehouse them in prison camps for an extended period of time.

In the same way that you can't teach a pigeon to play chess, and you can't teach a pig to sing, you can't teach a Leftist how to function in civil society. They no longer operate in the realms of reason, civility, fairness or freedom. All they know us authoritarianism and violence, which explains why they will have to be isolated from society for the rest of their lives. This is what their parents, school teachers and college professors taught them, of course: How to be crybullies and terrorists, not how to function as reasonable citizens in a free society.

Why Democrats will fail to destroy America, but succeed in destroying their own cities and states

Despite their best efforts to bring this nation to its knees, Democrats are going to fail in their attempts to destroy America. They will succeed, however, in gutting their own cities and causing an economic implosion that will see most of America's left-wing cities plunged into Third World status over the next five years. California can barely even keep the lights on as it is. Just wait until they come up $100 billion short for this year's budget and can't force Trump to bail them out with federal money. The mass government layoffs and pension slashing efforts are about to begin in Democrat-run states like New York and California. It will be brutal, and any income earner who has the ability to flee such states is already in the process of bugging out, leaving behind ghost town cities filled with criminals, homeless people, left-wing terrorists and impoverished welfare recipients.

Ultimately, Democrats will end up imploding and destroying their own future. After the failed insurrection attempt, the Democrat party will be disbanded, and thousands of former Democrat officials will either be dead or imprisoned. This is the fate they have chosen, since they refuse to live in peace with people who have different political views. (Exactly when did "coexist" become "kill all Republicans?")

Trump is in charge, and he has numerous "secret weapons" to deploy against the treasonous Dems, as I explain in this important podcast:

Brighteon.com/ae41783d-4d33-496d-badc-b0dae52507d4

 

How to survive the escalating civil war

The war for November's election is just one small chapter in the much larger war against America and humanity. In addition to the war to destroy America, there is a global war to exterminate the human race and depopulate the planet. This war is tied into the COVID-19 vaccines, which are being engineered to achieve global depopulation through infertility and death.

I have two online resources to help people prepare for the escalation of all this. First, I've posted a free nine-hour audio book called the Global Reset Survival Guide. You can download it for free, right now, along with a printable PDF transcript of the full audio book, at GlobalReset.news.

Secondly, I'm posting practical survival videos and podcast each day at PrepWithMike.com, which also lists in-stock preparedness items from the Health Ranger Store. This page brings you how-to videos on choosing the correct firearms, deploying firearms in self-defense, bugging out of the cities, living off-grid and surviving the food shortages yet to come. In one video, I teach you how to clean and lubricate firearms with coconut oil.

See new videos and podcasts each day at PrepWithMike.com.

Just because Trump wins doesn't mean the Democrats won't make our lives a living hell for as long as they can. Expect nationwide attacks on the power grid, food supplies, fuel infrastructure and telecommunications in the months ahead. Plus, the treasonous tech giants will continue to escalate their illegal censorship efforts to silence all pro-America voices while amplifying voices of terrorism and communism.

Things are about to get real interesting. Get prepared or you won't survive it. If you thought 2020 was bad so far, this party has only just begun, folks.

MUST READ: The Many Similarities Between the Democrats' Maneuvers in the 2020 Election and Lenin's Maneuvers in Russian Election 100 Years Ago

2020 the "Perfect Storm" facing our Republic- All three branches of our Government are in peril

Historical Discovery...An election in 1917 forecast the election in 2020! Here are the elements from 103 years ago!

  • Years of preparatory work were spent in misleading and mis-directional propaganda
  • Contested voting results marred the election's finality and ultimately its dismissal
  • Claims that the poor were going to be disenfranchised of their votes
  • The scheduled voting was extended by two months
  • Division, violence, slander and libel were widespread
  • A delusional/cunning/conniving campaign made unrealistic promises to win the population
  • Anger and mob violence were deliberately stirred against "privilege," possessions, and status
  • Deceptive claims persuaded the "majority" they were robbed of their electoral victory
  • Inevitable civil war was sparked at the election's end because Lenin's group failed to win the majority
  • The dissolution of the old State and a "transformation" of the new system was promised to lead to true socialism but it brought history's worst and longest ruling tyrant

And here is how it happened...

Although often used in our American English language the idiom "the perfect storm" is a new phrase. This phrase originated in a conversation between Boston National Weather Service forecaster Robert Case and author Sebastian Junger. Junger was researching his non-fiction book The Perfect Storm, published in 1997 and later produced as a movie. The narrative detailed the fishing vessel Andrea Gail which sank killing all six crew. The event documented a set of meteorological circumstances that occur only once every 50 to 100 years.

This idiom which has been incorporated into the American English refers to a rare combination of elements, circumstances, or events that meld together to form a fearful and extremely unpleasant problem. It is used in a negative sense and anything described as a "perfect storm" is seen to have catastrophically bad consequences. One commonly hears it today in think-tank strategies playing out hypothetical scenarios. Webster defines the terms as "a critical or disastrous situation created by a powerful concurrence of factors."

As this article is written the American Republic is struggling with a "Perfect Storm." And it is not a hypothetical brain-game exercise.

Here is a basic reminder of your 9th Grade American Civics materials...The Founding Fathers of our Republic designed a system of governing to prevent the evils inherent in the onerous governing systems of Europe. The Republic was to be governed in a way that the majority would have a say BUT safeguarded against a rogue majority controlling the nation. A deliberate system of "checks and balances" was wisely incorporated against evil efforts to seize national control.

The ultimate safeguard was the separation of the State's governing into three distinct bodies. While each would have an impact upon the others, that impact was deliberately limited. The Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the Republic were designed to be independent but function with unity to guide the nation, preserve freedoms, and guard the human rights that are often disenfranchised by evil systems and philosophies. One of the greatest feats of our Republic is the exercise of individualism when these three branches of governing are properly functioning.

However, at this point in our nation's historical narrative the "perfect storm" threatens ALL THREE of these safeguards of our Republic. And my disconcerting observation is that many prance and dance around with a Pollyannish attitude denying the reality of our current situation. The prevailing cultural concern is as absurd as the attitude of one busily rearranging the deck chairs on the sinking Titanic!

The assault on the EXECUTIVE BRANCH

The resistance has been hard at work even prior to President Trump's inauguration. Attempts to nullify the electoral process have been constant. The evil agenda was visible. Our President has suffered evil resistance of historic proportions. The basic cause is his commitment to the U.S. Constitution. It is the unchanging Constitution that provides the legal governing making the USA an exceptional nation of individuals. This fixed and knowable Constitution gives our nation the strength and energy envied by the world and loathed by tyranny. )The Resistance/DEMS/BLM/ANTIFA demand an activist Court that will change our Republic's basic foundational principles.)

The stated position of the resistance has been loud and long-they have robbed President Trump of his first four years as President. They have dared to present the most ridiculous reasons for his disqualification and removal. They have manipulated, deceived and extorted support for their evil agenda. They have ignited violence that has divided and destroyed the civility of the USA. Their evil purpose was to achieve the political purge of a duly elected President of the United States of America. Our President has been nominated for multiple Nobel Peace Prizes for his exceptional ability to broker true peace between Middle Eastern nations. But the resistance shrugs forgetting they excitedly embraced the Peace Prize awarded to Obama which is admitted now as an award for nothing! The resistance's political maneuvering and evil mission is well documented.

Those of the resistance are described by inspiration. Their conniving and cunning evil is a constant action seeking to destroy legitimate order. Psalm 36:4, "He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil." (See also Ecclesiastes 10:20)

Even the classics describe the reality of this evil. From Stevenson's pen we remember the confession that describes those seeking to nullify the legality of President Trump's election. Like the pained soul of Henry Jekyll the resistance can confess, "I lost my identity beyond redemption...had I risked the experiment while under the empire of generous or pious aspirations, all must have been otherwise, and from these agonies of death and birth, I had come forth an angel instead of a fiend...At that time my virtue slumbered; my evil, kept awake by ambition, was alert and swift to seize the occasion." Perhaps the most troubling reference that Stevenson's pen gives to the resistance character states, "O my poor old Harry Jekyll, if ever I read Satan's signature upon a face, it is on that of your new friend."

Inspiration and the Classics unite in describing today's controlling evil that occupies every thought of the Progressive/Liberal/BLM/ANTIFA "resistance" as "Satan's signature upon a face."

This is the first element of today's "Perfect Storm." There are two more elements...

The assault upon the LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

It is the Legislative Branch of our Republic's government that involves the citizenry in the governing process. The population's vote is a significant and treasured freedom. That vote expresses the desires of each State of the Union and is recorded by the Electoral College so that a free election is not controlled by a militant mob. The Founding Fathers wisely saw the potential of a militant group manipulating and coercing control. The establishment of the Electoral College was a masterful move safeguarding the Republic's freedoms. By this method the most populous States are equal with the least populous-true equality.

The 2020 General Election is recognized as a critical point in our nation's history. It can be said that every election is critical and previous elections have suffered the militancy of Progressives/Liberals attempting to undermine the Constitutional foundation of our nation. These past challenges failed because the general population was aware of the evil being campaigned and were educated regarding the safeguards of our Constitution. But the context has dramatically changed for the 2020 General Election. In this current election the Constitutional safeguards are condemned and the population is ignorant of just how fragile individual freedom is. It appears that many have been groomed and are eager to believe the Progressive/Liberal/Democratic lies and embrace anarchy. This is not a new situation. History is amazing as it details how the past continues to explain the present.

Consider the Russian Revolution. I offer just a scant discussion on Lenin's role in this aspect of Russian politics. Hopefully I will have opportunity to offer a more complete discussion. Consider the first "free election" that Russia experienced. It was held in October or November 1917 (the month depends upon which calendar you consult). Lenin promised a "free" election where all votes would be equal and each citizen would be heard. The election was scheduled and a number of political parties provided the voters a choice. Among the many parties were two dominating parties: the Socialist-Revolutionaries and the Russian Social-Democratic Labor Party (Lenin's Bolsheviks).

The propaganda fueling this election is intriguing. Lenin had confidence that his party would be an overwhelming victor. He was convinced that his pamphleteering during his exile was persuasive. He was convinced that only he knew best what the poor citizens needed for happiness in life. Lenin had devised a governing system by which the State would help the poor citizen to have free health care, free food, personal land ownership, and the erasure of all class "privileges" by redistributing wealth/financial resources/personal property. Under Lenin's control there would be no more denial of personal rights, no more prejudice of persons, and no more unjust financial levels. All would be totally "equal" IF Lenin's perfect Revolutionary State was allowed to transform into the Marxist utopia.

Here is where history becomes instructive regarding the Legislative Body of the State.

When the Tsar abdicated, the Russian Provisional Government was formed. Its purpose was to organize the free elections for the Russian Constituent Assembly. The provisional government lasted only eight months and was replaced by the Bolsheviks. A significant footnote to this period is that the Provisional Government was unable to make decisive policy decisions due to political factionalism and a breakdown of state structures. The anarchy fomented by Lenin and the Bolsheviks rendered a civil governing impossible. Whatever legislative bills were presented were instantly killed by opposition. Revolutionary unrest fueled violence. This was a deliberate design of non-cooperation and pure resistance! The deliberate campaign for divisiveness and refusal to perform governing duties is a sobering similarity to the resistance in modern day American politics. Lenin's free election was conducted but here are some troubling facts from its history:

1) The election was designed to be held on specific dates BUT some argued that the peasants in the outlying territory needed more time to get their votes counted. So, the ballot counting was extended in some places by TWO MONTHS!

2) Throughout the 1917 campaign Lenin argued that the citizens deserved a government that represented "the proletariat's interests" because, in his estimation, all other governments represented the "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie." Lenin argued that the rich would never give up their "privileges" and so the soviets would need to seize power by violence. Lenin's propaganda fueled the division that would destroy the Russian nation. He urged violence nurtured by envy and jealousy arguing that some had "privileged status" that others did not and this great "inequity" could only be removed with a violent overthrow.

3) Even though the first free election included a number of different political parties, Lenin was confident that his Bolsheviks would win. That did not happen. The final tabulation exposed Lenin as suffering defeat and his Bolsheviks only garnered 23.26% of the vote. The Socialist-Revolutionaries emerged  with 37.61% of the vote. Lenin was unhappy and contested the results! Lenin refused to concede protesting the legitimacy of the election.

4) The objective of the resistance was a one-party government and an absolute silencing of opposition. "It is the duty of the revolution to put an end to compromise, and to put an end to compromise means taking the path of socialist revolution" Lenin, Speech On The Agrarian Question November 14 (1917).

Carefully consider how Lenin embraced the freedom of voting while masterfully disguising his evil objective of silencing the opposition and developing a one-party ruling government.

After the election results were announced, Lenin stood and revealed the coup. The results were called flawed. Those in opposition were eventually murdered. Lenin instituted his famous "dictatorship of the proletariat." Lenin said this was the best course for the average citizen and this dictatorship would dissolve when all privileged distinctions were erased, all wealth inequities removed, and all land ownership seized. And the Russian population permitted this dictatorship to exist!

When applied to the 2020 General Election in the USA, this historical anecdote should sound national alarms! The very concepts that Lenin used to nullify the free election of Russia in 1917 are being used in today's election. In fact, some of the very words and phrases that were used by Lenin are parroted by the Democratic Progressives today and characterize the membership of Democratic Party in the USA!

When the election process of our governing Constitution is compromised and dismissed as archaic and inapplicable THEN our nation has lost the compass for safely navigating the treacherous existence in this world.

The assault upon the JUDICIAL BRANCH

History reminds its students that the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justices were forever changed in 1987 with Joe Biden's Judiciary's malevolent confirmation hearing of Judge Robert Bork. Biden was campaigning to be the nomination of the Democratic Presidential candidate (which he would lose to Dukakis because of Biden's plagiarism). In 1987 the custom was for such hearings to last two days or less. Under Biden's chairmanship Bork's hearing was weaponized and lasted TWELVE days. Such a reprehensible action has earned its own idiom in American language-"so and so was ‘Borked'."

The 1987 Democratic Party's politicizing and weaponizing the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court appointments opened the floodgates for the most contentious events in the governing of the United States of America. One only needs to go back to the recent hearings to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. The personal slander, insidious innuendos, manufactured complaints and a host of other evil actions have become accepted political weapons (Or as Speaker Pelosi remarked, "arrows in our quiver"). In past times it was customary that the sitting President was respected and his nominations were accorded with approval, even if the conservatives knew they were approving a Progressive/Liberal who despised the literalist view of the U.S. Constitution they voted for the confirmation. But now there is a horrid specter of divisiveness and vindictiveness enveloping the process.

The General Election of 2020 spotlights the tragic devolving of the status of the U.S. Supreme Court. It is suggested by some, with validity, that the Supreme Court is no longer focused upon apolitical justice but has assumed an active role in establishing law that the U.S. Constitution reserves only for the Legislative Branch.

The Democrats/Progressives/Liberals have announced their intent to "pack" the Supreme Court with Justices who disrespect the U.S. Constitution. They want a left-leaning Court that will sanction the total dismemberment of the constitutional statutes that made America a great nation. The far-left Daily Kos cautioned Republicans that a "future government controlled by Democrats is likely to pursue - court-packing -  as the best way to rebuff a conservative Court majority viewed as illegitimate." Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told voters during an October 2018 campaign event that Democrats should "pack the Supreme Court of the United States of America" after taking the House, Senate, and Presidency. Leading Democrats also warned that if the justices issue a pro-Second Amendment ruling, and if Democrats win the White House and the Senate in 2020, then they will fundamentally remake the High Court.

Former President Franklin Roosevelt issued this same threat in the 1930s after facing legal obstacles with his New Deal and subsequently "threatened to expand the Court by six seats for a new total of 15 justices so that he could get the rulings he wanted." The American people, however, rejected his threat, leading to massive Republican victories in the 1938 midterm elections.

Former Democrat presidential candidates Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), and now vice-presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced that they were open to reshaping the court. "We are on the verge of a crisis of confidence in the Supreme Court," Harris said, according to Politico. "We have to take this challenge head on, and everything is on the table to do that."

During the summer of 2020 several major progressive groups, including Take Back The Court, Demand Justice, Progressive Change Institute, and the Sunrise Movement, signed a letter declaring their support for increasing the number of justices by "at least" two seats. The resistance wrote in part: "The fastest, most effective way to make the court representative of all Americans is to enact legislation increasing the size of the Court by at least two seats, and to quickly fill those seats with justices who will safeguard our democracy." Note: In the context of this reference it is best to remember Lenin's manipulative ploy that his "free" election would best represent "all Russians"?

In March 2019, President Trump astutely dismissed mounting calls from his Democratic opponents to pack the Supreme Court. "The only reason they're doing that is they want to try and catch up, so if they can't catch up through the ballot box by winning an election, they want to try doing it in a different way," he added.

The late Justice Ginsburg balked at the proposition of packing the Supreme Court. "It would make the Court look partisan," the late justice told National Public Radio's Nina Totenberg last year.

The Judicial Branch of the government is to interpret laws respecting the United States Constitution's limits. Once this unbiased governing is compromised, there is no lawful regulations for civility in our nation.

Concluding Thoughts...

This is where the United States of America is positioned as the General Election of November 2020 nears. A discord and division prevail that has never existed. This violence has been stoked with bitterness. The Progressives/Democratic Party/BLM/ANTIFA assure us that regardless of the election there will be violence. We are being conditioned to think that electoral results will take weeks or months to be validated and even then, they will be challenged. The vitriol marking the battleground is undeniable. Following Lenin's example in 1917 the Democrats have been told never to concede. The results are already announced, "Furious Democrats are considering total war - profound changes to two branches of government, and even adding stars to the flag (i.e. adding the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico as States thus insuring Democrats have two solid additions to their column)  - if Republicans jam through a Supreme Court nominee then lose control of the Senate."

As the National Election of 2020 approaches we read of violence, destruction and carnage in the public sphere...Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's recent death sparked a political firestorm, as Republicans prepare for a contentious, pre-election confirmation showdown and some Democrats threaten to, quite literally, burn the country down.

The "Perfect Storm" facing the Republic of the United States of America has formed and threatens the three pillars of our civility.

After Lenin's Bolsheviks permitted a "free election" they moved quickly to strangle freedoms. Lenin's opinion of the poor proletariat having the right to vote for individual choices morphed into a ruling class identified as the "Politburo." The first Politburo consisted of: LeninTrotskyKrestinskyKamenev, and Stalin. Lenin died. Trotsky was exiled to Mexico and was murdered. Krestinsky and Kamenev were assassinated. That left Stalin. Stalin manipulated the bureaucratic apparatus and seized power. By the 1930s, Stalin had transformed the Politburo into the supreme executive and legislative body of the Communist party and the Soviet government. Stalin was in command of its membership, decisions, and debates. The party congress now not only did not elect the politburo, but its own membership was fully controlled by the politburo. Not only had Lenin's vision of a one-party political government been achieved but now it became a one-man political government! Individualism had been erased. The individual had ceased to exist and all had become "the State."

The "Perfect Storm" in Russia's history resulted in the totalitarian reign of Stalin's terror. Such is the conclusion of Russia's first free election.

What will YOU do regarding the "Perfect Storm" in which our Republic is now struggling?

Luciferase Chain Reaction to ID2020

August 16, 2020 by Edward Morgan

By Rosanne Lindsay, ND, 

Put down the mask. The mask is a tool of conditioning, a temporary distraction from the new technology.

Biometric bioluminescence.

Bioluminescence is a "cold light" that derives from a chemical reaction within a living organism. Cold light means less than 20% of the light generates thermal radiation, or heat. Most bioluminescent organisms are found in the ocean; fish, bacteria, and jellies. Some bioluminescent organisms, including fireflies and fungi, are found on land. There are almost no bioluminescent organisms native to freshwater habitats.

Until now.

Luciferase Chain Reaction to ID2020

Scientists say humans can utilize bioluminescence through a chemical enzyme called Luciferase. Enzymes catalyze biochemical chain reactions in the body to make things happen. The root word lucifer - means lightbringer. Lucifer also happens to be the name of the Vatican's binocular telescope, atop Mt. Graham in southeastern Arizona, as well as the name of an infamous fallen angel.

Researchers at MIT created a microneedle platform using fluorescent microparticles called quantum dots (QD), which can deliver vaccines and at the same time invisibly encode vaccination history directly in the skin. Bill Gates calls it the Human Implantable Quantum Dot Microneedle Vaccination Delivery System.

The researchers designed their dye to be delivered by a microneedle patch rather than using a traditional syringe and needle. Such patches are now being developed to deliver vaccines for measles, rubella, and other diseases. The QD are composed of nanocrystals, which also emit near-infrared (NIR) light that can be detected with a specially equipped smartphone using an app. The dots are about 4 nm in diameter, and are encapsulated in biocompatible microparticles that form spheres about 20 µm in diameter. This encapsulation allows the dye to remain in place, under the skin, after being injected.

Forget the HIPAA Privacy rules. The MIT team set out to devise a method for recording vaccination information in a way that doesn't require a centralized database or other infrastructure, rather it is an "on-patient," decentralized medical record. No mention of adding or subtracting information, or hacking was disclosed. The team wrote:

Because these phones offer on-board processing power, camera applications, and inexpensive consumer-grade camera modules, they chose to adapt an existing smartphone to enable NIR imaging rather than build a completely new imaging system.

This experiment was conducted in rats in the December 2019 journal Science Translational Medicine which concluded:

intradermal QDs can be used to reliably encode information and can be delivered with a vaccine, which may be particularly valuable in the developing world and open up new avenues for decentralized data storage and biosensing.

Biosensing is a new drop sensing method for faster testing of Covid-19, published June of 2020 in ACS Nano.

Sound Supernatural?

Biometric ID2020 & Cryptos

COVID19 seems to be an acronym for Coronavirus I.D. 2019. This I.D. will be delivered via quantum dot microneedles, as a digital identification markPart of this injectable system will include a human implantable device  for buying and selling cryptocurrency. The digital ID will come in the form of something called an Immunity Passport.

In the Information Age, advertisers claim blockchain-enabled digital "immunity passports could help take the strain off increasingly stretched healthcare systems and help reinvigorate shrinking economies." But what if the Immunity Passport is also your passport to travel by plane, to buy a car, to purchase food, to see a show?

The Plandemic is the vehicle for the government to move from a currency system (a dollar in your pocket) to a crypto system, to allow government to get deeply into your business.

Think Smart Meter in your body.

Connect the Quantum Dots

The Luciferase chain reaction is set up to:  1). inject everyone with a universal shot, 2). create a device for buying and selling currency that's run on the human body as it's battery, and 3). attach both those things to a digital identification from ID2020.

Crypto is not a currency. It's a control system. Your crypto (in a digital system) can arbitrarily be taken away if you don't behave. That is not your asset. It is a credit at the company store. And they can take it away or change its value. - Catherine Austin Fitts, investment advisor

Unlike the dollar, which is tied to the oil standard as the petrodollar, the crypto will have a human being as its collateral.

Catherine Austin Fitts says:

So you see Bill Gates coming out with ID2020, so every human being has a biometric ID. They're talking about changing from an oil standard to a human standard. And where I come from, we call that slavery. Where the dollar syndicate wants to go is a Mark of the Beast System, a control system. The end of currencies."

FUN FACT:  The publication of this Microsoft patent?  #060606

The US government (Navy) is working with a Danish tech firm to come up with an implantable chip that would integrate with a cryptocurrency called Ripple. The technology being rolled out over the next decade, from life extension technology to new energy systems, to building out space, can create incredible wealth, for some. But there is also a reason to believe in the dumbing down of an entire global population.

Slavery.

Spiritual war.

Biowarfare.

The Global Superbrain

The Covid19 solution being called a "vaccine' is the Human Implantable Quantum Dot Microneedle Vaccination. It is not a vaccine.  It is an implantation to become a part of the Cloud.

Think Star Trek, The Borg. As in: We are the Borg. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is Futile, You will be Assimilated.

According to a research published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience, exponential progress in nanotechnology, nanomedicine, artificial intelligence (AI), and computation will lead this century to the development of a "Human Brain/Cloud Interface" (B/CI).

Being connected to the Cloud would mean neural nanorobots would provide direct, real-time monitoring and control of signals to and from brain cells to allow Matrix-style downloading of information.

These devices would navigate the human vasculature, cross the blood-brain barrier, and precisely autoposition themselves among, or even within brain cells. They would then wirelessly transmit encoded information to and from a cloud-based supercomputer network for real-time brain-state monitoring and data extraction. With the advance of neuralnanorobotics, we envisage the future creation of ‘superbrains' that can harness the thoughts and thinking the power of any number of humans and machines in real time," - Robert Freitas, senior author of the research, University of California, Berkeley and Institute for Molecular Manufacturing in the US.

"Crytocurrency is not a currency, it's a crypt." - Catherine Austin Fitts

Luciferace is not only a ‘near infrared bioluminescence enzyme', it is a chain reaction to catalyze an ID tracking system.

No matter what COVID is, virus, bacterium, fungus, there are natural solutions, which do not include giving up personal freedom and human rights.

Put down the mask.

Know what are are consenting to.

Know what you are connecting to.

Know you always have a choice.

Escobar: China Updates Its "Art Of (Hybrid) War"

Authored by Pepe Escobar via The Asia Times,

In 1999, Qiao Liang, then a senior air force colonel in the People's Liberation Army, and Wang Xiangsui, another senior colonel, caused a tremendous uproar with the publication of Unrestricted Warfare: China's Master Plan to Destroy America.

Unrestricted Warfare was essentially the PLA's manual for asymmetric warfare: an updating of Sun Tzu's Art of War. At the time of original publication, with China still a long way from its current geopolitical and geo-economic clout, the book was conceived as laying out a defensive approach, far from the sensationalist "destroy America" added to the title for US publication in 2004.  

Now the book is available in a new edition and Qiao Liang, as a retired general and director of the Council for Research on National Security, has resurfaced in a quite revealing interview originally published in the current edition of the Hong Kong-based magazine Zijing (Bauhinia).

General Qiao is not a Politburo member entitled to dictate official policy. But some analysts I talked with agree that the key points he makes in a personal capacity are quite revealing of PLA thinking. Let's review some of the highlights.

Dancing with wolves

The bulk of his argument concentrates on the shortcomings of US manufacturing:

"How can the US today want to wage war against the biggest manufacturing power in the world while its own industry is hollowed out?"

An example, referring to Covid-19, is the capacity to produce ventilators:

"Out of over 1,400 pieces necessary for a ventilator, over 1,100 must be produced in China, including final assembly. That's the US problem today. They have state of the art technology, but not the methods and production capacity. So they have to rely on Chinese production."  

General Qiao dismisses the possibility that Vietnam, the Philippines, Bangladesh, India and other Asian nations may replace China's cheap workforce:

"Think about which of these countries has more skilled workers than China. What quantity of medium and high level human resources was produced in China in these past 30 years? Which country is educating over 100 million students at secondary and university levels? The energy of all these people is still far from being liberated for China's economic development."  

He acknowledges US military power even in times of epidemic and economic difficulties is always capable of "interfering directly or indirectly in the Taiwan straits question" and finding an excuse to "block and sanction China and exclude it from the West." He adds that, "as a producing country, we still cannot satisfy our manufacturing industry with our own resources and rely on our own markets to consume our products."   

In consequence, he argues, it's a "good thing" for China to engage in the cause of reunification, "but it's always a bad thing if it's done at the wrong time. We can only act at the right time. We cannot allow our generation to commit the sin of interrupting the process of the Chinese nation's renaissance."

General Qiao counsels, "Don't think that only territorial sovereignty is linked to the fundamental interests of a nation. Other kinds of sovereignty - economic, financial, defense, food, resources, biological and cultural sovereignty - are all linked to the interests and survival of nations and are components of national sovereignty." 

To arrest movement toward Taiwan's independence, "apart from war, other options must be taken into consideration. We can think about the means to act in the immense gray zone between war and peace, and we can even think about more particular means, like launching military operations that will not lead to war, but may involve a moderate use of force."

In a graphic formulation, General Qiao thinks that,

"if we have to dance with the wolves, we should not dance to the rhythm of the US. We should have our own rhythm, and even try to break their rhythm, to minimize its influence. If American power is brandishing its stick, it's because it has fallen into a trap."

In a nutshell, for General Qiao, "China first of all must show proof of strategic determination to solve the Taiwan question, and then strategic patience. Of course, the premise is that we should develop and maintain our strategic force to solve the Taiwan question by force at any moment."    

Gloves are off

Now compare General Qiao's analysis with the by now obvious geopolitical and geo-economic fact that Beijing will respond tit for tat to any hybrid war tactics deployed by the United States government. The gloves are definitely off.

The gold standard expression has come in a no-holds barred Global Times editorial:

"We must be clear that coping with US suppression will be the key focus of China's national strategy. We should enhance cooperation with most countries. The US is expected to contain China's international front lines, and we must knock out this US plot and make China-US rivalry a process of US self-isolation."

An inevitable corollary is that the all-out offensive to cripple Huawei will be counterpunched in kind, targeting Apple, Qualcom, Cisco and Boeing, even including  "investigations or suspensions of their right to do business in China."

So for all practical purposes, Beijing has now publicly unveiled its strategy to counteract US President Donald Trump's "We could cut off the whole relationship" kind of assertions.

A toxic racism-meets-anti-communism matrix is responsible for the predominant anti-Chinese sentiment across the US, encompassing at least 66% of the whole population. Trump instinctively seized it - and repackaged it as his re-election campaign theme, fully approved by Steve Bannon.

The strategic objective is to go after China across the full spectrum. The tactical objective is to forge an anti-China front across the West: another instance of encirclement, hybrid war-style, focused on economic war.

This will imply a concerted offensive, trying to enforce embargoes and trying to block regional markets to Chinese companies. Lawfare will be the norm. Even freezing Chinese assets in the US is not a far-fetched proposition anymore.   

Every possible Silk Road branch-out - on the energy front, ports, the Health Silk Road, digital interconnection - will be strategically targeted. Those who were dreaming that Covid-19 could be the ideal pretext for a new Yalta - uniting Trump, Xi and Putin - may rest in peace.       

"Containment" will go into overdrive. A neat example is Admiral Philip Davidson - head of the Indo-Pacific Command - asking for $20 billion for a "robust military cordon" from California to Japan and down the Pacific Rim, complete with "highly survivable, precision-strike networks" along the Pacific Rim and "forward-based, rotational joint forces" to counteract the "renewed threat we face from great power competition."

Top of Form

Bottom of Form

Top of Form

Bottom of Form

Davidson argues that, "without a valid and convincing conventional deterrent, China and Russia will be emboldened to take action in the region to supplant US interests."

Watch People's Congress

From the point of view of large swathes of the Global South, the current, extremely dangerous incandescence, or New Cold War, is mostly interpreted as the progressive ending of the Western coalition's hegemony over the whole planet.

Still, scores of nations are being asked, bluntly, by the hegemon to position themselves once again in a "you're with us or against us" global war on terror imperative.  

At the annual session of the National People's Congress, starting this Friday, we will see how China will be dealing with its top priority: to reorganize domestically after the pandemic.  

For the first time in 35 years, Beijing will be forced to relinquish its economic growth targets. This also means that the objective of doubling GDP and per capita income by 2020 compared with 2010 will also be postponed.

What we should expect is absolute emphasis on domestic spending - and social stability - over a struggle to become a global leader, even if that's not totally overlooked.

After all, President Xi Jinping made it clear earlier this week that a "Covid-19 vaccine development and deployment in China, when available," won't be subjected to Big Pharma logic, but "will be made a global public good. This will be China's contribution to ensuring vaccine accessibility and affordability in developing countries." The Global South is paying attention.

Internally, Beijing will boost support for state-owned enterprises that are strong in innovation and risk-taking. China always defies predictions by Western "experts." For instance, exports rose 3.5% in April, when the experts were forecasting a decline of 15.7%. The trade surplus was $45.3 billion, when experts were forecasting only $6.3 billion.

Beijing seems to identify clearly the extending gap between a West, especially the US, that's plunging into de facto New Great Depression territory with a China that's about to rekindle economic growth. The center of gravity of global economic power keeps moving, inexorably, toward Asia.

Hybrid war? Bring it on.

12 Powerful Bible Verses to Build Your Faith and Fight Fear During the Coronavirus Crisis

The Bible is God's Word and is full of truth for every situation we face in life. As the world endures quarantines, closures, and even panic during the coronavirus pandemic, God offers peace. His Word can displace anxiety and fear with hope and healing.

Jesus is described as the "Prince of Peace" for those who choose to let him reign over their lives. He offers peace for our troubled minds and freedom from fear. Here are just a few of the great verses in the Bible about God's power to deliver us from fear - we begin with the words of Jesus from the Gospel of John:

John 14:27
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

Isaiah 41:10
"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."

Philippians 4:6-7 
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Deuteronomy 31:8
"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

Psalm 27:1
The LORD is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

Exodus 14:13
"And Moses said to the people, 'Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today'." 

Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

Isaiah 41:13
"For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."

Psalm 23:4 
"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."

1 Peter 5:7
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

2 Timothy 1:7
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

Psalm 34:4
"I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."

VERSES ABOUT GOD'S POWER TO DELIVER FROM PLAGUES

2 Chronicles 7:13-14 begins by talking about plagues, and ends with God's power to heal and restore our land.

"If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Psalm 91 is a classic and often quoted passage about God's protection for those who seek refuge in the Most High God.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 
I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

The Mightiest Empire Of All Time Fell Because Of A Bug - It's Something To Think About Heavily, Then Plan, Prepare And Pray

 How Pandemics Have Changed Societies Throughout History 

By Don Boys, Ph.D. for All News Pipeline


One of the most obvious effects that major diseases have had on the world is the loss of population.

In the pestilence of 302 A.D., the plague had a companion--famine. The people resorted to eating grass, and deaths from famine almost matched those dying from disease. Hungry dogs fought over the bodies of the human dead. Likewise, during the bubonic plague (Black Death) in the early 1300s, the population of Europe had outrun the food supply, and in a few years, the poor were eating cats, dogs, and other animals. Some say they even ate their own children!

Some historians suggest that up to 70% died of plague in affected areas. During this time, it took 200 years for the population of Europe to recover to the level prior to the epidemic.

This loss of population impacted the workforce, but at first, only the more skilled positions. However, when the second and third waves of pestilence swept across Europe, every job was affected. Farmers, servants, tinkers, and others were in short supply. J.L. Cloudsley-Thompson wrote, "some 50,000 persons died in London alone so that all public business was interrupted for two years and the war with France had to be discontinued."

During this time, inflation skyrocketed. Goods became difficult to obtain and very expensive because so many people had died. Serfs no longer were tied to one master; it became easy to leave one lord and be hired at high wages by another master. It took between 100 and 133 years for Europe to overcome the shock and consequences of such a disastrous loss of workers!

There was a scarcity of all kinds of workers, so those who were still alive were worth more. They tried to unite and strike for higher wages, but the result was the Statute of Labourers of 1351 that kept wages at the 1346 level. It also prohibited workers from leaving their masters. Other laws followed that were just as bad, but the medieval economy experienced a major overhaul after a series of peasant revolts in 1381 and 1449. The plague helped force many economic changes. 

The loss of workers caused wages and prices to soar; however, rents plummeted. Historian Gary North wrote, "There was now a labor shortage (at the old terms of labor). Wages shot upward. All over Europe, governments passed wage controls. They made it illegal for people to move to new parishes. And all over Europe, this legislation failed."

As the plague impacted a city, the healthy workers demanded higher wages and as the workers now had more leverage, even the dullest leaders knew serfdom (feudalism) was in its death throes. The serfs were no longer tied to a master for life with no hope of advancement. Of course, the aristocrats resisted, resulting in rebellion concluding with riots in Paris, Florence, and London in the mid and late 1300s.

If the coronavirus becomes more threatening, we can expect people to react in a similar fashion. The airlines, hotels, car rentals, and similar businesses are being decimated as you read this. Others will follow if the virus intensifies. If laws were passed forbidding workers to change or quit jobs or move, would you obey those laws? If you are quarantined, will you resist? If vaccination is required, will you comply? If church attendance is forbidden, will you meet secretly?

No one-politician, physician, preacher, or pundit-can give any guarantee that this threat is temporary or that it will kill millions, but everyone should consider all possibilities. It is only wise to pray, plan, then prepare for the worst. If it is a minor threat to a few thousand people and it fizzles in a month or two, then no big deal. If people keep dying worldwide, you will have been wise to prepare.

When the number of dead reached the breaking point in Europe which was different in various societies and ages, responsible people became irresponsible, calm people became terrified, and the borderline paranoid became dangerous. As fearful people ran from their homes, social and political organizations disappeared, crops were left to rot in the fields, populations were displaced, civil war was fomented, and major shifts in religious thinking occurred.

Religions were changed to a certain degree during and following all major plagues, and one of the most flamboyant results of pestilence was also one of the most appalling-religious excess. With a constant threat of death, it became time to look at one's self, and as is often true, some people became mentally or emotionally unbalanced. Such were the Flagellants or the Brotherhood of the Cross. Those confused, but sincere people tore off their clothes and beat each other on their naked bodies with scourges, consisting of three lengths of leather with knots. In each knot were iron spikes, sharp as needles. The movement spread throughout Poland, Hungary, Bohemia, Germany, etc.

The extremists went from town to town spreading their fanaticism, and no doubt, the pestilence. Cloudsley-Thompson wrote of the Flagellants: "the gloomy fanaticism which gave rise to them infused a near poison into the despairing minds of the people. Thus, during the fourteenth century, the idea was spread that Jews had been responsible for spreading the pestilence by poisoning wells and infecting the air." He was saying that a poisoned mind produced poisoned thinking and twisted actions, resulting in hatred of Jews and others. Any sane person could see that Jews were dying at the same rate as others.

Religious society was massively impacted not only by the plague but also by the printing press. When the printing press was invented in 1440, the Bible was printed for the common man and for the first time in a thousand years, people began to be informed and think for themselves. The influence of printing accelerated with the production of books, pamphlets, tracts, and flyers resulting in the Protestant Reformation.

The plague in the 14th century made a lasting impression on the Roman Catholic Church and its critics. Some of Rome's monasteries were wiped out. Charles Gregg reports that all 150 monks died at the monastery near the French seaport of Marseilles and the same thing happened in Avignon.

A small group of intellectuals ruled the educational world, and most of them, being older, were most vulnerable to the plague and were mowed down when the pestilence visited Europe. In fact, four of Europe's thirty universities disappeared in 1350 as a result of plague which was a major concern in academia during those desperate days of death.

Another consequence of plague was the disappearance of Latin as the medium for writers, and the acceptance of the common language for literature. The reason is simple: there was no choice since the teachers and clerics who taught Latin in the schools, seminaries, and universities were buried!

Today's education has already been impacted by all schools closed in Japan, Italy, and twenty other nations. Homeschooling prevalence is exploding because of the epidemic.

An indication of the extent of national trouble during times of disease, destruction, and death can be seen in desperate laws passed all over Europe to alleviate their misery. During Diocletian's reign (ruled 285-305) farmers were forbidden to leave the farms to take up other jobs and some occupations were made hereditary. That simply meant that a son had to follow his father's trade or profession. Yes, such laws were tyrannical but politicians don't think correctly in difficult times, or any time!

Obviously, the bug has caused more damage to nations than battles. Hans Zinsser wrote that the Plague of Justinian in the sixth century was responsible for the demise of the mighty Roman Empire. He suggested that it was "perhaps the most potent single influence-which gave the coup de grâce to the ancient empire."

The mightiest empire of all time fell because of a bug! So, what are the possibilities for us today with the coronavirus in China, Italy, South Korea-even America?

It's something to think about-then pray, plan, and prepare.

During the Plague Year in London, People Turned to Religion!

Posted by Don Boys on March 11, 2020

During the Black Death plague in the 1600s, London officials encouraged religious devotion by days of prayer and fasting and humiliation. Government leaders asked the people to make public confession of sin and to implore the mercy of God to avert the dreadful judgment which hung over their heads. Can you imagine the mayor of a major city taking such a position today? No? Well, you can imagine him leading a gay rights parade, can't you?

Citizens of many persuasions embraced the occasion by rushing to the churches until one could not get near the church doors. The people were saying, "There's a time to play and a time to pray, and this is the time to pray." While many Christians got serious about godly living and became cautious in daily activities, Muslims were relatively unconcerned. Their rigid predestination (some would call fatalism) led them to not take any unusual health precautions, so they put themselves in danger by exposing themselves to plague carriers.

Just this month, the media reported Muslims in Iran licking their shrines showing no fear of the coronavirus.

When fearful, fanatical and faithful citizens arrived at church, the parish minister was often absent. He had, well, felt "called" to the safe countryside where the prosperous and powerful had fled. The preacher in the pulpit was often a Dissenter (Independent Bible preacher) who had been outlawed a few years earlier! To be sure, some of the establishment preachers (Church of England) stayed on the job and died of plague, but many fled to safety. The people flocked to packed churches to hear the preachers preach the Word of God to a confused, concerned, and convicted congregation. Many people professed faith in Christ, and great crowds attended church; but, when the plague took control, the churches emptied because it was not safe to be near any person who might be infected.

Daniel Defoe, author of A Journal of the Plague Year, wrote that many consciences were awakened: "Many hard hearts melted into tears; many a penitent confession was made of crimes long concealed....Many a robbery, many a murder, was then confessed aloud, and nobody surviving [in the home] to record the accounts of it. People might be heard, even into the streets as we passed along, calling upon God for mercy, through Jesus Christ, and saying, ‘I have been a thief,' ‘I have been an adulterer,' ‘I have been a murderer,' and the like, and none durst stop to make the least inquiry into such things or to administer comfort to the poor creatures....Some of the ministers did visit the sick at first and for a little while, but it was not to be done. It would have been present death to have gone into some houses."

The constant atmosphere of death and constant terror drove men to look honestly at their lives and at their religious experience. This resulted in thousands becoming more sincere and placing more emphasis on their personal relationship with Christ. It also led them away from the established churches in various countries.

Printing had been invented in 1440, and people were now reading the Bible and doing their own thinking for the first time in over a thousand years. They realized that church membership and church attendance did not produce personal satisfaction or personal salvation, contrary to what they had been taught. Following personal conversion, those new converts (but old church members) lived and died as Christians.

Christians believed they had a responsibility to help others as a Christian duty, so during times of famine they shared their food; in times of sorrow they wept with the bereaved; and, in times of pestilence, they nursed the sick and dying. The non-Christians and the pagans took notice of such kindness, and at a time when other institutions were discredited and often dissolved, the Christian churches were more desirable. William McNeill wrote, "Pagans fled from the sick and heartlessly abandoned them." Christians stayed and served-and died.

After so much despair and death, a dullness set in. It seemed that people lost their fear of death and had really resigned themselves to death. Defoe wrote: "Towards the latter end men's hearts were hardened, and death was so always before their eyes, that they did not so much concern themselves for the loss of their friends, expecting that themselves should be summoned the next hour."

They no longer asked people on the street (with whom they had to do business) how they were nor did they feel a need to inform others that they were not infected. The general attitude was: all were going to die. So now, they went back to church and sat in hot, crowded pews without fear of the next person. It didn't matter. They were all among the walking dead.

Defoe, an outspoken Christian, made a cogent comment in this regard: "Indeed, the zeal which they showed in coming [to church], and the earnestness and affection they showed in their attention to what they heard, made it manifest what a value people would all put upon the worship of God if they thought every day they attended at the church that it would be their last."

When plague ravaged a city, it was natural for people to think God was visiting them for their sins. We have not seen that reaction to the coronavirus.

Yet.

 

 

WARNING TO ALL: If we do not protect innocent children from abortion and LGBT mutilations, God will unleash fire and fury upon America

by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Defenseless, self-aware human babies and children are being systematically mutilated and murdered by the gleeful, demonic abortion advocates across America. In their acts of pure malice, there is no remorse, no compassion and no recognition of the life of the child. These abortionists and post-birth infanticide proponents are nothing less than serial murderers and baby butchers, and it is our duty as conscious, capable human beings to stop them from mutilating and murdering innocent human children, whether inside the womb or out.

In the name of "women's reproductive health," the mass murder abortion industry absurdly claims that human babies are not human at all... at least until someone decides to keep the child. Even then, that same child can be terminated by the parent after birth, achieving what is essentially "fourth term abortion" that flat-out consists of murdering a living, breathing human being. This is all justified by Leftists who tell themselves that pro-life Christians are mean, while life-destroying abortionists are compassionate.

We already know that Leftists will not stop their LGBT mutilations and systematic murder of children. In fact, they take great pride in their acts of extreme violence against the unborn and recently born. This annihilation of the life of an innocent young human somehow gives meaning to the empty, pointless lives of "progressives" who apparently exist for no reason other than to carry out acts of murder, violence, destruction, censorship and sabotage against others. Their entire existence is rooted in the destruction of life, liberty and happiness, which is why they hate the very nation founded on those Christian principles.

Every abortionist is a serial murderer, and every serial murderer will be judged by God, if not judged by society first. The warning here is that if We the People do not protect the innocent against abortion violence and LGBT mutilations, God will judge our nation as a whole, and few will be insulated from at least some of the effects of God's fury being unleashed upon the wicked that now infest our society like demonic, anti-human ghouls.

The mass murder and mutilation of conscious human babies, all in the name of "progressivism"

There is little doubt that God is about to unleash judgement yet again upon America and Western civilization for pushing the mass murder and the LGBT mutilation of innocent children. With "Drag Queen Story Hour" spreading across America, and the nation's public education system now nearly indistinguishable from pedophilia indoctrination, never before have America's children been subjected to the wickedness of so many demonic, perverted, child-abusing Leftists who revel in child molesting sex cults like NXIVM which has ties to Hillary Clinton, child trafficking and Satanism.

With our public schools being turned into pedophilia grooming centers, and with universities now functioning as LGBT indoctrination / brainwashing factories for young adults, Leftists have turned America into a demon-infested Hellscape that defies morality, human biology and human decency. No child is safe in a nation run by tech monopolists, media propagandists and left-wing lawmakers who demand the "right" to murder children after they are born (or to physically castrate them via LGBT DIY "gender reassignment" home surgery carried out by their murderous, mentally ill parents).

What the progressive Left is doing to children across America today isn't merely sick. It's Satanic. It is an affront to life and God.

And it will not go unanswered.

How will God unleash his fury upon us? The Bible already tells us how

I have not yet read the entire Bible, but I'm making my way through its various books and chapters, and what strikes me as astonishing is how God unleashes his vengeance on evil populations, evil cities, evil nations or evil groups of people. He does not wave a magic wand and simply cause those evil people to vanish or explode in a ball of fire. Rather, God unleashes the power of natural phenomena to annihilate the intended target.

Yes, God kills the wicked. Repeatedly. Although this is rarely talked about at popular churches, such accounts are found throughout the Bible. But God does not kill out of wickedness or vengeance. Rather, he eliminates those who are enemies of God and the goodness that He represents.

Throughout the Bible, there are accounts of God using meteors from space (Sodom and Gomorrah), insect swarms, winds, oceans, rain, fire, earthquakes, pestilence, tornadoes and floods to reshape Earth and eliminate those who stand in opposition to the sanctity of life itself. It's no exaggeration to say that God works through Mother Nature to annihilate those who are enemies of Life and God.

He also tends to spare the innocent, and his word promises that those who embrace God will stand unharmed even as thousands around them are destroyed. (See Psalm 91, below.)

From WhatChristiansWantToKnow.com:

The Bible is full of judgments from God where natural catastrophes are involved.  In Isaiah 29:6 He thunders, "the LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire."  In Genesis 6:11-12, "the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence.  God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways."

Revelation 16:18 "Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since the human race has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake."

Isaiah 29:6 "the LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire"

Genesis 6:17 "I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish."

Ezekiel 20:48 "'Hear the word of the LORD. This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am about to set fire to you, and it will consume all your trees, both green and dry. The blazing flame will not be quenched, and every face from south to north will be scorched by it."

This passage from Job (Job 37:9-13) also seems to describe God's weather control capabilities, where He is harnessing and controlling the power of nature to protect his followers and destroy his enemies. Read this carefully and understand that the Bible is describing a divine being taking control over natural phenomena:

2 Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth. 3 He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth. 4 After that comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back. 5 God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. 6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.' 7 So that everyone he has made may know his work, he stops all people from their labor. 8 The animals take cover; they remain in their dens. 9 The tempest comes out from its chamber, the cold from the driving winds. 10 The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen. 11 He loads the clouds with moisture; he scatters his lightning through them. 12 At his direction they swirl around over the face of the whole earth to do whatever he commands them. 13 He brings the clouds to punish people, or to water his earth and show his love. 14 "Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God's wonders. 15 Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? 16 Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge? 17 You who swelter in your clothes when the land lies hushed under the south wind, 18 can you join him in spreading out the skies, hard as a mirror of cast bronze? 19 "Tell us what we should say to him; we cannot draw up our case because of our darkness. 20 Should he be told that I want to speak? Would anyone ask to be swallowed up? 21 Now no one can look at the sun, bright as it is in the skies after the wind has swept them clean. 22 Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. 23 The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. 24 Therefore, people revere him, for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?"

When God unleashes His judgement upon the wicked, those who believe in God shall be spared, according to the Psalm of Protection (emphasis added):

Psalm 91

1 "Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, "The LORD is my refuge," and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."

Do not be surprised if "natural" disasters remove the wicked from this Earth

If a magnitude 9 earthquake destroys every building on the West Coast of California while, miraculously, those of faith are spared and saved, do not be surprised. This might be God working through Mother Nature to eliminate the wicked who have betrayed God and life.

If an infectious disease is unleashed in America and takes hold in the filthy cities run by Democrats, leading to mass infections and millions of deaths, don't be shocked, either.

If you did not realize that God kills the wicked, you are woefully uninformed about the history of our planet, the plan of God and the cosmic battle now taking place between good and evil. Fallen angels are quite real, and Satan has achieved surprising control over nearly every institution in modern society, including the news media, public education, the tech giants, politics, pop culture, banking and finance. The Antichrist is about to be revealed as a globalist political figure promising world peace, and the Mark of the Beast may very well be Mark Zuckerberg's new global cryptocurrency scheme that would enslave humankind just as described in the Book of Revelation. Signs of the End Times are all around us, for those willing to look. (Look up!)

God is watching, waiting to judge this nation for the choices we make. Just yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Christian cross may remain standing on public lands. This seemingly small decision may have just saved America from annihilation at a cosmic scale, because it reaffirms that America is a Christian nation which still embraces the cross. Satan lost that court case, but the evil one is gaining ground in many other ways, having now infiltrated Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Google, YouTube and nearly every Hollywood studio, broadcasting putrid filth and demonic propaganda into the minds of our children. Even Disney has joined with evil and is now pushing abortions and LGBT activism onto children as young as seven.

No one can know the day upon which God will unleash judgement upon America, but when that day comes, you do not want to be standing anywhere near "the wicked" - child murderers, molesters and traffickers. Namely, the upper echelon of the Democrat party, along with all the corrupt judges, journalists and political jokers who protect the wicked from facing real justice.

But real justice is coming, and it is supernatural in its origin. Whether the justice of human society succeeds or fails, God's justice is inescapable by all. The wicked falsely believe they have all the power now, as they rule over human society. Yet their power is but a shadow of the real, divine power which will judge them all.

If We the People wish to stop the coming judgement that shall be handed down upon this nation, we must stop the wicked from exploiting, abusing, mutilating and murdering innocent children. Because they are all God's children - both from a spiritual and ancient civilizations point of view - and God will not stand by forever and watch his children have their limbs and reproductive organs ripped from their bodies in the name of "progressivism."

To stop God's wrath, in other words, stop the Democrats. Overturn Roe vs. Wade. End the LGBT mutilations, chemical castrations and child abuse. Dismantle the Hollywood child programming factories. Restore basic principles of morality and ethics to our schools, our town halls and our families. Only then may we earn favor with God and pray for forgiveness for the tens of millions of children already murdered in the name of "women's rights."

Every action in this universe has a consequence, and every conscious being is a divine being. The systematic destruction of life has already set into motion cosmic, supernatural events of such magnitude that their materialization can only be called "Biblical."

Pray for forgiveness for what we have allowed to be done in our nation, to our children, in the name of "progress." Pray that God decides we are a nation worth saving rather than one that must be destroyed.

And The Pulpits Are Silent

Feb 07, 2019 Read More Articles by Dave Daubenmire

(Notice:  This article is a reprint originally written in 2006.  With the direction our culture is heading a reprint is deemed appropriate. Why won't our pastors fight?)

"For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?" -Jeremiah 5:26-31

Despite what the political parties would like you to believe, the problem in America is not the politicians, it is the pulpits. I hate to break the news to you, but most of America's pulpits are filled with cowardly men. They are a shame to the Christ they claim to serve.

Harsh words, aren't they? Not the type of thing that will make any friends in this "cheap-grace" culture in which we live. But that's okay. I'm not looking to make friends.

I am about fed-up with what I see. How did we ever get such man-pleasing leaders? All that our fore-fathers held dear is being destroyed before our very eyes and hardly a peep from the pulpit. They don't want to hear it. It's the pulpiteers that I am talking about. They are concerned with being "to harsh", they tell me that "Jesus is in control," that they are not "called" to fight evil and that "we should pray for our enemies."

Where have these guys come from? What we need is a return of the Voice of God thundering through prophets standing in America's pulpits. Not the prissy Purpose Driven drivel passing as the Gospel today. The feminized-preachers of today cannot hold a candle to those who ushered in The Great Awakening which led to the American Revolution, and the abolition of slavery - two world-changing events spearheaded by the pulpit.

Listen to the message of America's premiere preachers today. Rick Warrenand his Purpose Driven Life have infiltrated the Church. Over 400,000 pastors have attended his conferences and over 40 million of his books have been sold. Wikipedia tells us "Since September 2002, over 30,000 congregations, corporations, and sports teams across the United States have participated in a "40 Days of Purpose" emphasis. A May 2005 survey of American pastors and ministers conducted by George Barna asked Christian leaders to identify what books were the most influential on their lives and ministries." The Purpose Driven Life was the most frequent response. Today's Christians are more familiar with the words of Warren than the Words of Jesus. Thousands of America's churches have used it in their Bible studies and thousands of preachers preach Warren's message.

Joel Osteen was voted Most Influential Christian in 2006. His preaching style focuses on "the goodness of God rather than sin." He is a self-described "Life-coach" and "thinks that there are probably others better qualified, or more gifted for explaining Bible verses. Osteen explains that he tries to teach Biblical principles in a simple way, emphasizing the power of love and a positive attitude." Wikipedia. "Presently, Osteen and several Lakewood Church team members travel across the nation, presenting programs in large stadiums to a paying public." He has sold millions of books to millions of feel-good Christians.

While our nation is killing babies, our schools are indoctrinating Christian-kids in Secular Humanism, and "Truth has fallen in the streets," our preachers are attending church-growth seminars, using ‘self-help' books to supplement the Bible, and chasing after the butts and bucks. They are fiddling while the nation burns, building their church rather than Christ's Kingdom.

  • Public schools are destroying the faith of Christian children.

    ·Legislation is introduced to remove the rights of parents.

    · Children are taught they came from apes.

  • Private property is stolen by government.

    ·Mother Earth is protected more than Father God is exalted.

    · Illegal aliens over-run our borders.

     The entertainment industry celebrates and promotes debauchery.

...and the pulpits are silent

From a bygone era, the sound from the pulpit rumbles throughout the ages.

"Could a mariner sit idle if he heard the drowning cry? Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die? Could a fireman sit idle, let men burn and give no hand? Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you DAMNED?" -Leonard Ravenhill

"Churches don't need new members half so much as they need the old bunch made over. There wouldn't be so many non-church goers if there were not so many non-going churches. Too many churches are little more than four walls and a roof." -Billy Sunday

The voice from the pulpit today sings a different song. "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Jeremiah 5:31. Truth, justice and the American way are a thing of the past.

"None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity." Isaiah 59:4.

And tragically, the pulpits are silent.

Democrats just legalized murdering their own children in New York... do you really think they won't murder Christians and Trump supporters next?

https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-01-29-democrats-just-legalized-murdering-their-own-children-in-new-york.html

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 by: Mike Adams
Tags: abortion, child murder, democrats, Demoncrats, evil, executions, genocide, infanticide, left cult, Left-wing, mass murder, New York, Satanists, terrorism, violence

(Natural News) Under a new law that just took effect in New York, a child may be aborted up to the due date or even during the birth itself. If that child survives the attempted abortion and is born alive, that child may be murdered on sight by an abortionist to "complete" the abortion.

When the law was passed, NY Democrats applauded and cheered in the state Senate chambers, and Cuomo ordered a prominent building lit up in pink light to signify the blood of children that Democrats are ecstatic to see spilled on a daily basis.

With this decision, New York has quite literally been taken over by Satanists and demons. They are called "Demoncrats," and they now openly applaud the legalized murder of human babies.

The obvious question now becomes this: If these Demoncrats are thrilled about murdering their own children (i.e. future Demoncrats), do you think they will hesitate one bit to start murdering Christians, conservatives, Trump supporters or white people?

Make no mistake, the Demoncrat agenda is not simply the mass censorship of conservative, pro-Christian free speech, nor even the murder of President Trump. Their true agenda is a nationwide ethnic cleansing mass murder campaign against their political opponents, carried out in a way that will make the Holocaust look tiny in comparison.

Watch my video commentary here, which explains why these New York Demoncrats will "burn in Hell" for their heinous crimes against children (and why we must stop them now as a matter of self-defense against mass murder).

Brighteon.com/5995595332001

I'm not the only one who has come to this realization, by the way. Columnist Kurt Schlichter has reached the same inescapable conclusion and now writes about it in a hard-hitting piece first published at TownHall.com.

Schlichter: The Left is gearing up to commit mass genocide across America, targeting white people for government executions

Below, I reprint the most important paragraphs from Schlichter's article, which I consider a must-read piece for understanding and navigating our modern world:

The Dems are spooning with socialism, and the goal of socialism is written in blood on the pages of history. The unapproved must be liquidated, and they are making no secret that you are unapproved.

You better get your head in the game or you'll find your head in a guillotine - definitely figuratively, maybe literally.

They hate you for not submitting, for being an obstacle to their rule.

Facts and evidence don't matter because the trial is already over and you've already been condemned because of who you are. You can't ever clear yourself with the left because they don't hate you for what you did or will do, but for who you are. That's where the babble about "white privilege" comes from - if you're white and conservative you're wrong, and if you're not white and conservative, you're even...wronger.

It's not about race or gender or orientation, but about power - they want to take yours, to strip you of your sovereignty and make you kneel. Their SJW posturing is all a lie and a scam. They don't care about ending racism, sexism, homophobia, or any of the myriad other -isms and -phobias they blather about. Those poses are just weapons to be used to capture what they really want - total power over you. They seek to shame you into submission, and if that won't work, then they'll do whatever it takes.

Do you think the Democrats of yesterday spent a lot of time weighing the evidence before lynching black men? Those Democrats murdered black men for two reasons - because they wanted to send a message to other black men about the price of resistance, and because they enjoyed doing it.

When the Democrats of today were on Twitter mobbing those children from Kentucky for daring not to submit, couldn't you sense the hideous joy they felt screeching for the heads of those kids? Their souls are empty of morality and religion, and nature abhors a vacuum, so they filled that vacancy with pagan bloodlust.

Orwell wrote about the daily "Two-Minute Hate," and how is this any different? These unloveable losers have nothing else in their lives, no connection with anything, so they find meaning by joining together with other misfit psychopaths so they can lose themselves in a frenzy of hatred where they get to play the role of righteous avengers.

Think of what they would do with real power...

And understand that they might get it. The Democrat Party is not just listening to them. It's being transformed by them. Name the prominent Democrat politician who stood up and said, "This Covington Kid crucifixion is wrong!"

Do you think that a leftist Supreme Court majority won't construe the First Amendment to exclude protection for "hate speech," by which I mean any thoughts you might wish to express that they object to?

Do you think they won't turn the federal bureaucracy - including law enforcement - against their political enemies a thousand times harder than before, having been rewarded for the last decade of doing so?

Do you think they won't start tossing dissenters into prison? They do in England. You can go to jail for a tweet there - and do you think the left thinks that's a bad thing, or a creative European innovation that needs to be imported?

How about the Second Amendment? Are you kidding? The idea that our citizenry maintains the ultimate veto over tyranny drives them bonkers.

Do you think they won't use violence to make you conform? Hell, Democrat presidential candidate Eric Swalwell is willing to nuke you for not giving up your guns. We know that because he said so.

It's time to stop pretending that people who hate our guts don't hate our guts, and that given the chance they won't act exactly like people who hate our guts would act.

The time to stop them is now, while we still can peacefully, before they quit tweeting about killing and start doing it beyond the occasional Bernie Bro at a ball field. We need to purge the weakhearts and Fredocons from positions of authority in our movement and be all-in for victory in 2020. In the meantime, we need to aggressively push our campaign to remake the courts. And it sure would not hurt to follow the Founders‘ advice to exercise our Second Amendment rights to reinforce the deterrent to tyranny that is an armed citizenry.

Infanticide Is The Historical Hallmark Of A Pagan Culture

Judeo-Christian principles helped to form our culture, and Christianity is deeply pro-life. Until now, restraining evil as Christianity defines it bound Americans together with a common creed.

By Georgi Boorman

February 4, 2019

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who just made deeply troubling comments on abortion, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who just signed the country's most radical abortion law, have been the subject of intense ire in recent days. The outrage is coming not just coming from "radical" pro-lifers, but people from across the political spectrum.

Why? Because virtually no one but the far left believes it is morally acceptable to allow infants to be murdered seconds before birth, or to be left to die after delivery at the behest of the mother.

Yet the nation has been shocked by radical left's boldness in their mission to define preborn human beings as disposable non-persons. Where is this evil coming from, and how do we stop it?

The Slaughter of the Young and the Elderly

Abortion and infanticide have historically been common practices. In the first century AD, infanticide was a common and culturally accepted practice across the world. The murder of infants was a regular occurrence in Europe into the Middle Ages and beyond, despite being condemned by both church and state.

The practice was not confined to the desperate, illiterate, impoverished masses, as if "enlightened" thinkers knew better. The Twelve Tables of Roman Law, admired by Cicero, contains the command that, "A dreadfully deformed child shall be quickly killed."

Likewise, the wealthy first century Roman philosopher Seneca once wrote, "We doom scabby sheep to the knife, lest they should infect our flocks. We destroy monstrous births, and we also drown our children if they are born weakly or unnaturally formed; to separate what is useless from what is sound is an act, not of anger, but of reason." This from a Stoic, who supposedly believed virtue to be the highest good. Notably, Seneca was Nero's tutor.

Infanticide was an acknowledged option for any child who was deformed, sickly, of uncertain paternity, the wrong sex, or simply unnecessary to the household. Aristotle, revered by many a university professor, wrote that, "As to exposing or rearing the children born, let there be a law that no deformed child shall be reared," and "if any people have a child as a result of intercourse in contravention of these regulations, abortion must be practiced on it before it has developed sensation and life."

The Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans all practiced child sacrifice to appease their gods. The Chimú civilization, located in what is now Peru, sacrificed more than 140 children at one time some 550 years ago. The children's chests were slashed open, presumably to remove their hearts.

The citizens of the powerful ancient city Carthage in Phoenicia ritually sacrificed their infants. Archaeologists believe the preferred age of sacrificial infants was less than three months old. According to the writing of early AD Greek biographer Plutarch, "But with full knowledge and understanding [the Carthaginians] offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds."

The residents of the broader region of Canaan (late second millennium B.C.) were condemned numerous times by the ancient prophets of Israel for their child sacrifice. The prophet Jeremiah, in his judgment against apostate Israel, foretold that the valley of Hinnom, where the Israelites were sacrificing children to Baal, would be called "the valley of Slaughter" (Jeremiah 19:5-6).

Evidence for both ritualistic and utilitarian murder can be gathered from around the globe. In times of famine, the Inuit would abandon the elderly (both with and without consent) or dispense of them by quicker means. The Bactrians of ancient Persia were reported to have fed their sick and elderly to dogs trained especially for this purpose. Nearby cultures were supposed to have had similar senicidal customs. Among the Massagetae, Herodotus wrote that, "Human life does not come to its natural close with this people," but that the people sacrificed their elderly, boiled their flesh, and ate it.

Not every single community on earth had such evil practices, but the embrace of death as the first solution to a family or tribe's problems has been wickedly banal, historically speaking.

Judeo-Christian Morality Has Saved Us from Much Evil

Northam's endorsement of infanticide by exposure is only shocking because we have lived in a rare cultural moment in which infanticide is considered abhorrent. This extraordinary development is no accident. A sense of morality about life and death is not the product of evolution over the last 2,000 years. Rather, humanity's progress out of death culture is due to nothing less than Judeo-Christian influence.

As formerly mentioned, the Christian God condemned child sacrifice through his prophets; Israelites were specifically commanded not to kill their children. The concept of bloodguilt is found throughout the Old Testament, even in cases where death was seemingly accidental.

Murder was an abomination. The blood of Abel, the first recorded murder victim in the Bible, "cried out" to the Lord from the ground. The gravity of taking a human life was no less firm among the followers of Jesus, who consider the Hebrew scriptures the word of God. As the gospel spread, so did the idea that all human life is precious.

The belief in the sanctity of life overrode even the commonly accepted practice of abortion. Contrast the evil of Aristotle's belief with what Tertullian, an early church father, wrote in "Apologia": "In our case, murder being once for all forbidden, we may not destroy even the foetus in the womb...To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing; nor does it matter whether you take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to the birth. That is a man which is going to be one; you have the fruit already in the seed."

Elsewhere, he wrote: "Thus, you read the word of God, spoken to Jeremias: ‘Before I formed thee in the womb, I knew thee.' If God forms us in the womb, He also breathes on us as He did in the beginning: ‘And God formed man and breathed into him the breath of life.'...Was it, then, a dead body at that stage? Surely it was not, for ‘God is the God of the living and not the dead.'"

As Tertullian recounted, believers in the early church would search through the heaps of refuse in Roman cities and rescue infants from among the refuse and broken pottery. There is archaeological evidence to support the fact that infants were thrown in the trash or into the sewer, sometimes deliberately killed instead of being out left to die by exposure. That children should never be trash was a revolutionary concept in the early centuries after Christ.

The fourth century Roman emperor Constantine, who is generally believed to have converted to Christianity and was at the very least influenced by it, considered infanticide a crime. Later, Emperor Valentinian, also a professed Christian, officially outlawed the practice by requiring that all children be reared.

Since that time, the belief that God made man in his own image and set him apart from the rest of creation for communion with his creator, that he is "fearfully and wonderfully made," and that therefore God's prohibition against murder is to be upheld, has been the basis for the protection of human life.

Christianity Deeply Shaped the Early Days Of America

Infanticide was outlawed in colonial America. The earliest recorded execution for infanticide was in 1648 in Massachusetts. Similar court cases from the 17th and early 18th century are found in Maryland, Maine, Virginia, and New York. Abortion was also a prosecutable offense. Between 1670 and 1807, there were 51 convictions of infanticide in Massachusetts.

The seriousness with which our forefathers considered the murder of children was not due to the influence of the "great" philosophizing of Aristotle, Seneca, or Cicero. It was due to the Christian faith. It is Christians who have historically run orphanages, adoption agencies, and pregnancy clinics. It is Christians who advocate most fiercely for heartbeat bills and abolition. It is Christians out on the sidewalk, day after day, begging women not to kill their babies and offering to connect them with church members who are willing to adopt. Christians take seriously the biblical command to "look after the orphan and widow in their distress."

Where the kingdom of God* invades, death flees, both spiritually and physically. Where populations dwell in spiritual darkness, death finds favor. How can I know this for sure? How do I know our contemporary revulsion toward infanticide is not simply the result of human "progress" over the last two millennia? Because when Christianity is aggressively suppressed within a culture, as it has been under Communist and Socialist regimes, society chokes on the stench of death.

Recent Godless Regimes Did Not Value Human Life

Adolph Hitler's genocidal socialist regime* practiced the euthanasia of "life unworthy of life" and murdered about six million Jews. Communist dictator Joseph Stalin had no qualms with mass starvation. A quarter of the Cambodian population died under Pol Pot. Altogether, godless collectivism led to the deaths of about 100 million people in the 20th century. Karl Marx's philosophy implicitly assumed that some segments of the population must be "left behind" in the march toward utopia.

American culture has stood in stark contrast against this backdrop of death and misery, and it's not because Anglo Americans are inherently better than any other people group. It is because this nation was founded on Christian principles, namely that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. First among those rights is life. The principles of Christianity have been deeply formative to American culture. Restraining evil and promoting prosperity bound us together with a common creed.

But as we are now witnessing, that influence is fading. Majority support for legal abortion has been steady for decades, and millennials are just as supportive of it as the previous two generations. We are less religious than ever, and it is no coincidence that the godless are some of the biggest proponents of late-term abortion and infanticide. Those who profess Christianity and publicly bless abortion clinics do so against the core teachings of their own faith--it is not an intramural dispute, but an aberration.

What we are seeing now is a return to a world that does not know God and does not want to know God. This is the consequence of our detachment from Christianity and its moral system. The truth is that you do not attain a culture where human life (albeit born life) is almost universally cherished without the knowledge of the one true God.

As the Apostle Paul reiterated from Old Testament writers: "None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God...Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes."

The fact that we are surrounded by a wealth of resources and still 13 percent of all pregnancies in America and 28 percent in the state of New York end in murder should tell you something. This is not a matter of inequality of rights between the sexes or inequality of resources. It is a matter of the heart, and a heart without God is "desperately wicked." The god of Progress has led its worshippers to embrace death as easily as the Canaanite gods that surrounded the people of Israel.

Where idolatry is not directly involved, a perceived lack of resources has, for millennia, been the excuse to choose death, not the reason. In such a wealthy and technologically advanced society, it is perhaps more obvious a truth now than it was 2,000 years ago, but the truth has always been there. 

*I am not talking about the political Christendom of Europe and the Crusades. I am talking about the spiritual kingdom of God as referred to by Jesus and the New Testament writers.

 **Before you tell me, "Hitler was a Christian!" watch this video of a "Christmas tree" with a Swastika suspended over the top. Hitler also is reported to have said, "I'll have my reckoning with the church. I'll have it reeling on the ropes." The Nazis who surrounded Hitler deeply hated Christianity and wanted to see it destroyed.

Ryan Bundy's Opening Statement Is Something Every Red-Blooded American Should Hear

Tim Brown - November 24, 2017

Sometimes, in the process of covering so many things and in the attempt to provide as much information and commentary as possible, we simply are not able to provide all that we wish to do so to the public.

However, that does not mean other stories and commentary are not important.  In fact, many things coming out of alternatives media today are vitally important for those coming off the government-controlled media.

One of those items that didn't hit the mainstream media, and sadly didn't hit much of the alternative media, was the opening statement of Cliven Bundy's son, Ryan, as the trial of the century began nearly two weeks ago.

In light of that, I've been meaning to post his opening statement because it is certainly on that Americans should familiarize themselves with and quite possibly, should a fair history book be written, may go down in a Patrick Henry-esque fashion.

So, without further ado, here's Ryan Bundy's opening statement (H/T Gary Hunt)that was delivered to the jury in the Bundy Ranch trials on November 15, 2017.  Read and remember.

Thanks to the jurors for being here. I told you a little about myself at voir dire, but I'd like to introduce myself a little more, and tell you about my heritage and how that affects my case. (Projects a picture of his family - AND leaves it up throughout his statement!) [Note: the picture shown above.]

This is my ID! Not my driver's license. This is who I am, a man with a family and I'll do whatever it takes to provide for them. I want you to picture in your minds...you're out on the land... I'll take you to our ranch, you can see all the beauty of the land, the fresh air, sunsets and sunrises, the brush, you're on a horse in front of the cattle - place yourself there - feel the freedom - out of the congestion of the cars - that's how I was raised, playing in the river, we were called river-rats and that is where my life began and I hope ends.

My family has been on that land 141 years, my pioneer ancestors settled there in 1877 - there was nothing there. They carved out a living... they brought a horse and wagon and some provisions... this case, the government mentioned is "not about rights", but it is - those rights do mean something - rights are created through beneficial use. When my ancestors arrived, undoubtedly the horse would need a drink, so they led him to the water and that is beneficial use. The horse and perhaps a cow that had been led behind the wagon need to eat some brush in the hills, that is beneficial use. That established rights. The water rights are real! So real, the State of Nevada has a water rights registry including livestock watering rights. A law was created to protect those rights. The water rights that my father owns were first registered in 1891 by the State of Nevada - the State of Nevada is important, a sovereign state, its own unit, which entered the union in 1864. It entered equal to the original states, it is its own entity and state laws are important.

My family and I are charged with some grievous things and they are not true and evidence will show they are not; force, manipulation, extortion, violent-my family is not a violent family and I am not a violent man. For 20+ years we turned to local law enforcement. Rights are real property. The fact is that we create government to protect rights.

To have rights you must claim, use and defend... man only has rights he is willing to claim, use and defend. There is a difference between rights and privileges. Rights you own. Privilege is afforded. Like renting or owning a house. Government asserts there are no rights, only privileges and unless we pay, we can't be there. The State of Nevada says differently. These are my father's rights. Everything we have comes from the land. That is wealth, not the dollar bill. The things we use all come from the land. Who controls the land, controls the wealth.

We create government to preserve and serve us. These are some of the beliefs of my family. That we have said we will do whatever it takes to defend is not a threat, it is a statement. Being right here before you today is part of doing whatever it takes. The Founding Fathers pledged whatever it would take... their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, to defend rights. With the evidence you will see that is what we were doing; there was no conspiracy to impede, to harm... but, to protect our heritage that our pioneer ancestors established. We were attacked, surrounded by what appeared to be mercenaries, snipers pointed directly at me. You will hear a report from a sniper that he was keeping watch of me in my van, with my wife and two of my daughters with me.

Our ranch - children are always welcome - it is a place to play, play in the river, the pond, chase or hunt rabbits, burn your toes in the hot sand in summer-always free. Never before did we feel like someone was always watching. In early spring of 2014 we felt like someone was always watching... the dogs were watching the hills, when you are always with a dog you get to know what they are saying with their bark... you can tell by their bark what they are seeing... surveillance cameras on one hill, but the dog looking at another and growling... (tearfully) This is not what America is supposed to be. Supposed to be a land of liberty. The Founding Fathers fought and bled so we wouldn't have to and now we find ourselves in a similar situation.

They say this issue is over grazing fees... it's terrible, terrible, he must be a freeloader - it's only rhetoric - I'll tell you why - You don't pay rent when you own your home! We own those rights! Not the land, I know we don't own the land, but access...you and others have rights on that land. We own water and grazing rights. We don't pay rent for something we own.

The BLM was formed in 1960. Our rights were established in 1877, long before BLM. The original states own 100% of their land and all states were to come in on equal footing. The crux of the issue is,  are we a state or not? They say grazing is a privilege they can revoke and charge fees. If it is only a matter of money it is no problem. In fact, Mr. Whipple showed a copy of a check made out to Clark County. If the whole purpose is to show we owe a fee, then we'll pay to the proper owner of the land. That was not the only check written to Clark County, we sent several. Also, in Clark County, there were 53 ranchers who owned rights. There is only a single one still out on the range. The BLM is not gaining revenue, it's not important to them. My father could see they were there to manage him out of business. It's not about grazing fees. In the BLM office there were signs that read: No more Moo by ‘92 and Cattle Free by ‘93! If it were only about the grazing fees, the fees would have been under $100,000 over 25 years. It is rumored, it may not be seen in evidence, but it is rumored that they spent $6 million on the operation. Who spends that and court costs rumored to be over $100 million to collect $100,000?

What is this about? The court orders. They say my father had an opportunity in the courts. The court wouldn't consider states rights. They have forgotten they are servants of the people. We the people are the sovereign and ultimately, we the people are the government formed to meet needs that are better met by a group than by individuals. We are not slaves. We need to remember that. I think that's forgotten. The definition of freedom is lost in America. When we have to have a license or ask permission to do everything, we are subjects.

Back to the charges - they claimed I went to Richfield and that the sheriff had to be called because we were causing such a ruckus-evidence will show otherwise-we boycott to influence to change ways - we protest to cause a change - these are first amendment rights - we do not get rights from the Bill of Rights - we have rights to begin with - it should be called the Prohibition of Government - we have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, we can petition for a redress of grievances-rights we don't want the government to mess with.

A redress is to find an answer, find a solution - one way to protest. The BLM put up first amendment zones - not much bigger than this courtroom - we called them pig pens - by creating that area, they were denying our right everywhere else - that's what they used to arrest my brother - he was outside the pig pens. The first amendment has been protected over and over again in our history. There's lots of media in the gallery today, they wouldn't be happy to have their right to free speech taken. First amendment was put in the Supreme Law of the land, the Constitution - they shall make no law restricting these things... as you saw in the video yesterday, my brother was not impeding, not blocking, he was on a state road, on its right-of-way, simply to take pictures with his ipad of them stealing our cattle - they attacked him, threw him to the ground, rubbed his face in the ground. (emotional) The American public saw this and came not to impede or do harm. They came because they felt the spirit of the Lord, spirit of freedom and felt "we the people are not going to put up with that behavior". It was not pointed out there were snipers on the hill, I witnessed that through binoculars and the evidence will show this.

Back to Richfield, Utah, evidence and witness testimony will show there was not a ruckus there that disrupted or shut down that auction. I called the sheriff - that's the pattern - the local law enforcement and state brand inspectors in Nevada, Arizona and Utah and I had contact with the highway patrol, county commissioners in several counties and state officials - not all face to face, but some through phone calls. Is this what a criminal does? No. We were there protecting life, liberty, property. You saw the video of them hip chucking my Aunt Margaret, 50+ years of and just finished with cancer treatments, the mother of 11 children. They call these BLM guys law enforcement, but they are just BLM employees. All authority comes from we the people, we delegate authority to the county sheriff who we elect and he hires deputies and we then have a sheriff's department to protect our life, our liberty, our property. Choosing for yourself is freedom and we have no right to impede or harm others. That's God's law. Man-made law is to follow that. Man is supposed to be free, not controlled, serfs or slaves. Government is to be our servant. The government went in and shut down 600,000 acres - not one of us ever went into their enclosed area and never impeded them. Even my brother driving into the dump truck... isn't that impediment? The court order did not allow destruction of water infrastructure. What was a dump truck doing out there? Since that was beyond the scope of the supposed court order, we had a right to know. They could have stopped and answered our questions, but no, they set out attack dogs and tazers and threw Aunt Margaret to the ground. Every incident they are charging us with happened on property that belonged to the State of Nevada. Even if BLM had authority to close public land, they have no authority to close State of Nevada public land. The fence was on the State of Nevada land. Except by invitation, you will not see one of us breach that fence or impede the gather. We did not violate the court order. Dave went over the fence by the invitation of Dan Love and then the sheriff took over and asked for our help to take down the fence and then the cowboys, led by sheriffs squad cars went to release the cattle. The sheriff honored his oath and did his job. He should have done it sooner.

I love my family. I love them. I love this land. I love freedom. I am from the State of Nevada. I'm a true Nevadan. I mentioned before that Nevada became a state on Oct. 31st and we always got out of school on that day... I always thought we got out because it was my birthday. I'm a true Nevadan. I believe you are, too, and love freedom as much as I do. Freedom's not being lost overseas - it's lost right here at home in our back yards, our front yards. Until we are willing to do whatever it takes, liberty will be, is being lost. We are not anti-government! Government has its proper place and duties to perform. I want government to do its job. Nothing more. Nothing less. When government does more or less than its job, it becomes the criminal. When government damages our rights, it becomes the criminal. When someone harms or damages another's life, liberty or property that is the definition of a criminal. Extortion, violence, pointing guns - everything we are charged with, they were doing and thousands of people came running - the world knew about this - China, Ireland (they sent us a flag), New Zealand and other countries - why? Because America stood for freedom and has for years and the world is interested in seeing how America (emotional) will deal with freedom. The world wants to know. The American people said, "yes, we will stand for freedom. Government, you've gone too far and we will put a stop to it."

The courts have a place. It is said that We the People are the fourth branch of government. I say we are the first. The legislature to make laws, the executive to execute laws and the judicial to judge. All three branches are to protect your rights, our rights, freedom, liberty. Government does not have the authority in and of itself - man creates government to fulfill and protect rights. We the people give government the authority through the Constitution. The tenth amendment insures state's rights.

Evidence will show my father and my brothers are innocent men. We need you to put on that paper that we are not guilty. You are the twelve to represent us, peers, equals, people...we the People.

Guns...lots of guns...scary...camo...freedom of speech...also, the right to bear arms, the second amendment...a militia was necessary. What is a militia? It is defined in the law. U.S. Code defines militia: "all able bodied men 17-45 years of age". How many of you are a member of the militia? State of Nevada extended that and includes men up to the age of 64. How many of you now are a member of the Nevada militia? There is the organized militia, the National Guard and the unorganized militia - everyone else. Why did the Founding Fathers include the second amendment? Was it for duck hunting? No...no! Militia is mentioned six times in the Constitution. Such a small document and few things are mentioned more than the militia; the central government of this union and yet media or whatever wants to put a bad face on militia. Why did militia come to Bundy Ranch? To peacefully assemble, redress of grievances. No one was harmed except Davey, Ammon and Margaret. You will not see in evidence that we ever harmed anyone! They attack and we turned the other cheek. We were peaceful-insistent? Yes! And, Yes! Demanding. These men, these people did not come to seek an opportunity to point guns at the government. Hundreds, even thousands of people we didn't know. That's exemplary. These people came to do good. To protect me, to save my life. I had a sniper pointing at me, 200 armed men surrounding my home, my family (tearfully) Ryan Payne has been portrayed as a bad man. Evidence will show otherwise. He saved my life. He saved my life. Others came. I didn't even meet most of them until I was in jail with them, may have seen them in passing, but I didn't know them until jail. I honor and thank them now! I thank all who came. We only have rights we are willing to fight for. You'll see evidence that I was nearly always with the sheriff or a deputy - always in communication with them - I was side-by-side with Lombardo.

Thank you for coming, for being here. I will still do whatever it takes. This is not a threat, it is determination. I love my freedom. Listen to the still small voice to discern between truth and error. The indictment and grand jury testimony is full of lies. Truth has been blocked in previous trials. Listen closely - we will try to get you the truth. The truth will set me free and I'm counting on you to help me see that.

I invite you to our ranch. I recognize your right to use the land. We want you to come and enjoy it. I thank you for this time. Please find me not guilty and these other men not guilty. Stand up for freedom. Thank you.

America's Eclipse August 21, 2017- An Event Of Biblical Proportions

Monday, August 21, 2017 4:10

CDN - http://www.conservativedailynews.com

By Cindi

The United States Of America will witness an event of Biblical proportions on August 21, 2017. If this sounds a bit dramatic, consider these things:

  • In Genesis 1 we are told that one of the reasons God has given us the sun, moon, and stars is "for signs". In Luke 21 we are told, "There will be earth-shattering events-the heavens themselves will seem to be shaken with signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars."
  • Monday, August 21, there will be a Solar Eclipse that will cross from coast to coast over America
  • It has been nicknamed America's Eclipse
• This is the first solar eclipse in 99 years to cross over the country from coast to coast
• This is the first solar eclipse to darken the U.S. mainland since 1979
  • In Matthew 12 the Sadducees and Pharisees, while trying to bait Jesus, told Him to show them miraculous signs. Jesus told them that the only sign they would be given was the sign of the prophet Jonah. The most common interpretation and understanding of this passage of Scripture is that Jesus was speaking of His death and resurrection 3 days later, just as Jonah spent 3 days in the belly of the whale. While this fact is true, due to modern astronomical calculations, we now know that there was a total eclipse that passed near Nineveh on June 15, 763 BC. According to historians, this appears to be when Jonah went into Nineveh declaring that destruction was coming to that city in 40 days if they did not repent.
  • "The first major city that will witness the eclipse is Oregon's state capital, Salem. Salem is of course the shortened version of "Jerusalem", which is the most prophetically significant city in the entire Bible. Jerusalem was originally called "Salem" in the days of Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18) who was a foreshadowing of Christ or possibly even a Christophany. If that isn't interesting enough, the closest road to the exact point where the two eclipses cross is Salem Road in Makanda, Illinois. What are the chances of that?"

Why is this important?
• There are a total of 7 Salem's that are in the path of totality of America's Eclipse:
- Salem, Oregon- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 1m 54s of totality
- Salem, Nebraska- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 2m 37s of totality
- Salem, Kentucky- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 2m 40s of totality
- Salem, South Carolina- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 2m 36s of totality
- Salem, Idaho- Observers there will see partial totality
- Salem, Missouri- Observers there will see partial totality
- Salem, Wyoming- Observers there will see partial totality

  • There are four factors that make this eclipse the most-viewed ever:
    1. media attention
    2. traffic on the highways and by-ways of America
    3. the typical weather across the nation on August 21, 2017
    4. the vast number of people who will have access to it from nearby large cities.

Ezekiel 33:1-6 commands the watchmen to faithfully warn others of the danger that is coming to the land.

"Jewish rabbis have historically viewed solar eclipses as warnings from God to Gentile nations."

Is God warning America of impending disaster and destruction coming to our land?

This passage of Scripture most certainly seems to confirm that this is indeed the case:
"The sun will be turned to darkness...before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." Joel 2:31

God tells us:
"... if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

This is the very same warning that God gave the people of Nineveh through Jonah.
"When Jonah's warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh:

"By the decree of the king and his nobles:
Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish."

When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, He relented and did not bring on them the destruction He had threatened." Jonah 3:6-10

Will America heed the warning just as the people of Nineveh did?

Sadly, it does not appear that way so far.
Rather than heeding the warning, Americans are responding with "excitement", declaring:
• "The Great American Eclipse on August 21 is such an exciting event, it is a really singular and unique event in human history.."
Deciding to celebrate one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights...marking the monumental event in a special way...with a one-of-a-kind experience with which to take it all in."
• Outlining "fun stuff to expect during totality..."
• "Encouraging the entire country to watch, enjoy, experience it and do it in a safe way..."
• "Celebrating the occasion in style...making the eclipse a travel-worthy affair... parties included...with as much rosé as you can pack in your cooler..."

Isaiah 5:20 sums it up in this way:
"O how terrible for those who confuse good with evil, right with wrong, light with dark, sweet with bitter." (VOICE)
another translation declares, "What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter." (NLT)

It's being heralded as a "once-in-a-lifetime event". From coast to coast, this nation will experience darkness all across the land. How terribly sorrowful for the confused people of this nation! It's not too late, America! It's not too late! "Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish." Jonah 3:8-10

 

 

Washington's Farewell Address

1796

Friends and Citizens:

The period for a new election of a citizen to administer the executive government of the United States being not far distant, and the time actually arrived when your thoughts must be employed in designating the person who is to be clothed with that important trust, it appears to me proper, especially as it may conduce to a more distinct expression of the public voice, that I should now apprise you of the resolution I have formed, to decline being considered among the number of those out of whom a choice is to be made.

I beg you, at the same time, to do me the justice to be assured that this resolution has not been taken without a strict regard to all the considerations appertaining to the relation which binds a dutiful citizen to his country; and that in withdrawing the tender of service, which silence in my situation might imply, I am influenced by no diminution of zeal for your future interest, no deficiency of grateful respect for your past kindness, but am supported by a full conviction that the step is compatible with both.

The acceptance of, and continuance hitherto in, the office to which your suffrages have twice called me have been a uniform sacrifice of inclination to the opinion of duty and to a deference for what appeared to be your desire. I constantly hoped that it would have been much earlier in my power, consistently with motives which I was not at liberty to disregard, to return to that retirement from which I had been reluctantly drawn. The strength of my inclination to do this, previous to the last election, had even led to the preparation of an address to declare it to you; but mature reflection on the then perplexed and critical posture of our affairs with foreign nations, and the unanimous advice of persons entitled to my confidence, impelled me to abandon the idea.

I rejoice that the state of your concerns, external as well as internal, no longer renders the pursuit of inclination incompatible with the sentiment of duty or propriety, and am persuaded, whatever partiality may be retained for my services, that, in the present circumstances of our country, you will not disapprove my determination to retire.

The impressions with which I first undertook the arduous trust were explained on the proper occasion. In the discharge of this trust, I will only say that I have, with good intentions, contributed towards the organization and administration of the government the best exertions of which a very fallible judgment was capable. Not unconscious in the outset of the inferiority of my qualifications, experience in my own eyes, perhaps still more in the eyes of others, has strengthened the motives to diffidence of myself; and every day the increasing weight of years admonishes me more and more that the shade of retirement is as necessary to me as it will be welcome. Satisfied that if any circumstances have given peculiar value to my services, they were temporary, I have the consolation to believe that, while choice and prudence invite me to quit the political scene, patriotism does not forbid it.

In looking forward to the moment which is intended to terminate the career of my public life, my feelings do not permit me to suspend the deep acknowledgment of that debt of gratitude which I owe to my beloved country for the many honors it has conferred upon me; still more for the steadfast confidence with which it has supported me; and for the opportunities I have thence enjoyed of manifesting my inviolable attachment, by services faithful and persevering, though in usefulness unequal to my zeal. If benefits have resulted to our country from these services, let it always be remembered to your praise, and as an instructive example in our annals, that under circumstances in which the passions, agitated in every direction, were liable to mislead, amidst appearances sometimes dubious, vicissitudes of fortune often discouraging, in situations in which not unfrequently want of success has countenanced the spirit of criticism, the constancy of your support was the essential prop of the efforts, and a guarantee of the plans by which they were effected. Profoundly penetrated with this idea, I shall carry it with me to my grave, as a strong incitement to unceasing vows that heaven may continue to you the choicest tokens of its beneficence; that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; that the free Constitution, which is the work of your hands, may be sacredly maintained; that its administration in every department may be stamped with wisdom and virtue; that, in fine, the happiness of the people of these States, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete by so careful a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause, the affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it.

Here, perhaps, I ought to stop. But a solicitude for your welfare, which cannot end but with my life, and the apprehension of danger, natural to that solicitude, urge me, on an occasion like the present, to offer to your solemn contemplation, and to recommend to your frequent review, some sentiments which are the result of much reflection, of no inconsiderable observation, and which appear to me all-important to the permanency of your felicity as a people. These will be offered to you with the more freedom, as you can only see in them the disinterested warnings of a parting friend, who can possibly have no personal motive to bias his counsel. Nor can I forget, as an encouragement to it, your indulgent reception of my sentiments on a former and not dissimilar occasion.

Interwoven as is the love of liberty with every ligament of your hearts, no recommendation of mine is necessary to fortify or confirm the attachment.

The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so, for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.

For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens, by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together; the independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts of common dangers, sufferings, and successes.

But these considerations, however powerfully they address themselves to your sensibility, are greatly outweighed by those which apply more immediately to your interest. Here every portion of our country finds the most commanding motives for carefully guarding and preserving the union of the whole.

The North, in an unrestrained intercourse with the South, protected by the equal laws of a common government, finds in the productions of the latter great additional resources of maritime and commercial enterprise and precious materials of manufacturing industry. The South, in the same intercourse, benefiting by the agency of the North, sees its agriculture grow and its commerce expand. Turning partly into its own channels the seamen of the North, it finds its particular navigation invigorated; and, while it contributes, in different ways, to nourish and increase the general mass of the national navigation, it looks forward to the protection of a maritime strength, to which itself is unequally adapted. The East, in a like intercourse with the West, already finds, and in the progressive improvement of interior communications by land and water, will more and more find a valuable vent for the commodities which it brings from abroad, or manufactures at home. The West derives from the East supplies requisite to its growth and comfort, and, what is perhaps of still greater consequence, it must of necessity owe the secure enjoyment of indispensable outlets for its own productions to the weight, influence, and the future maritime strength of the Atlantic side of the Union, directed by an indissoluble community of interest as one nation. Any other tenure by which the West can hold this essential advantage, whether derived from its own separate strength, or from an apostate and unnatural connection with any foreign power, must be intrinsically precarious.

While, then, every part of our country thus feels an immediate and particular interest in union, all the parts combined cannot fail to find in the united mass of means and efforts greater strength, greater resource, proportionably greater security from external danger, a less frequent interruption of their peace by foreign nations; and, what is of inestimable value, they must derive from union an exemption from those broils and wars between themselves, which so frequently afflict neighboring countries not tied together by the same governments, which their own rival ships alone would be sufficient to produce, but which opposite foreign alliances, attachments, and intrigues would stimulate and embitter. Hence, likewise, they will avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty. In this sense it is that your union ought to be considered as a main prop of your liberty, and that the love of the one ought to endear to you the preservation of the other.

These considerations speak a persuasive language to every reflecting and virtuous mind, and exhibit the continuance of the Union as a primary object of patriotic desire. Is there a doubt whether a common government can embrace so large a sphere? Let experience solve it. To listen to mere speculation in such a case were criminal. We are authorized to hope that a proper organization of the whole with the auxiliary agency of governments for the respective subdivisions, will afford a happy issue to the experiment. It is well worth a fair and full experiment. With such powerful and obvious motives to union, affecting all parts of our country, while experience shall not have demonstrated its impracticability, there will always be reason to distrust the patriotism of those who in any quarter may endeavor to weaken its bands.

In contemplating the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as matter of serious concern that any ground should have been furnished for characterizing parties by geographical discriminations, Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western; whence designing men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real difference of local interests and views. One of the expedients of party to acquire influence within particular districts is to misrepresent the opinions and aims of other districts. You cannot shield yourselves too much against the jealousies and heartburnings which spring from these misrepresentations; they tend to render alien to each other those who ought to be bound together by fraternal affection. The inhabitants of our Western country have lately had a useful lesson on this head; they have seen, in the negotiation by the Executive, and in the unanimous ratification by the Senate, of the treaty with Spain, and in the universal satisfaction at that event, throughout the United States, a decisive proof how unfounded were the suspicions propagated among them of a policy in the General Government and in the Atlantic States unfriendly to their interests in regard to the Mississippi; they have been witnesses to the formation of two treaties, that with Great Britain, and that with Spain, which secure to them everything they could desire, in respect to our foreign relations, towards confirming their prosperity. Will it not be their wisdom to rely for the preservation of these advantages on the Union by which they were procured ? Will they not henceforth be deaf to those advisers, if such there are, who would sever them from their brethren and connect them with aliens?

To the efficacy and permanency of your Union, a government for the whole is indispensable. No alliance, however strict, between the parts can be an adequate substitute; they must inevitably experience the infractions and interruptions which all alliances in all times have experienced. Sensible of this momentous truth, you have improved upon your first essay, by the adoption of a constitution of government better calculated than your former for an intimate union, and for the efficacious management of your common concerns. This government, the offspring of our own choice, uninfluenced and unawed, adopted upon full investigation and mature deliberation, completely free in its principles, in the distribution of its powers, uniting security with energy, and containing within itself a provision for its own amendment, has a just claim to your confidence and your support. Respect for its authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in its measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of true liberty. The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government.

All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.

However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

Towards the preservation of your government, and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown. In all the changes to which you may be invited, remember that time and habit are at least as necessary to fix the true character of governments as of other human institutions; that experience is the surest standard by which to test the real tendency of the existing constitution of a country; that facility in changes, upon the credit of mere hypothesis and opinion, exposes to perpetual change, from the endless variety of hypothesis and opinion; and remember, especially, that for the efficient management of your common interests, in a country so extensive as ours, a government of as much vigor as is consistent with the perfect security of liberty is indispensable. Liberty itself will find in such a government, with powers properly distributed and adjusted, its surest guardian. It is, indeed, little else than a name, where the government is too feeble to withstand the enterprises of faction, to confine each member of the society within the limits prescribed by the laws, and to maintain all in the secure and tranquil enjoyment of the rights of person and property.

I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.

This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.

It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.

There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in governments of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.

It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield.

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice ? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?

Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible, avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace, but remembering also that timely disbursements to prepare for danger frequently prevent much greater disbursements to repel it, avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertion in time of peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars may have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves ought to bear. The execution of these maxims belongs to your representatives, but it is necessary that public opinion should co-operate. To facilitate to them the performance of their duty, it is essential that you should practically bear in mind that towards the payment of debts there must be revenue; that to have revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant; that the intrinsic embarrassment, inseparable from the selection of the proper objects (which is always a choice of difficulties), ought to be a decisive motive for a candid construction of the conduct of the government in making it, and for a spirit of acquiescence in the measures for obtaining revenue, which the public exigencies may at any time dictate.

Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it - It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence. Who can doubt that, in the course of time and things, the fruits of such a plan would richly repay any temporary advantages which might be lost by a steady adherence to it ? Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue ? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature. Alas! is it rendered impossible by its vices?

In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage, and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur. Hence, frequent collisions, obstinate, envenomed, and bloody contests. The nation, prompted by ill-will and resentment, sometimes impels to war the government, contrary to the best calculations of policy. The government sometimes participates in the national propensity, and adopts through passion what reason would reject; at other times it makes the animosity of the nation subservient to projects of hostility instigated by pride, ambition, and other sinister and pernicious motives. The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty, of nations, has been the victim.

So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions; by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.

As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.

Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.

The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.

Our detached and distant situation invites and enables us to pursue a different course. If we remain one people under an efficient government. the period is not far off when we may defy material injury from external annoyance; when we may take such an attitude as will cause the neutrality we may at any time resolve upon to be scrupulously respected; when belligerent nations, under the impossibility of making acquisitions upon us, will not lightly hazard the giving us provocation; when we may choose peace or war, as our interest, guided by justice, shall counsel.

Why forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation? Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground? Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor or caprice?

It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.

Taking care always to keep ourselves by suitable establishments on a respectable defensive posture, we may safely trust to temporary alliances for extraordinary emergencies.

Harmony, liberal intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing (with powers so disposed, in order to give trade a stable course, to define the rights of our merchants, and to enable the government to support them) conventional rules of intercourse, the best that present circumstances and mutual opinion will permit, but temporary, and liable to be from time to time abandoned or varied, as experience and circumstances shall dictate; constantly keeping in view that it is folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that, by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favors, and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard.

In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I dare not hope they will make the strong and lasting impression I could wish; that they will control the usual current of the passions, or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations. But, if I may even flatter myself that they may be productive of some partial benefit, some occasional good; that they may now and then recur to moderate the fury of party spirit, to warn against the mischiefs of foreign intrigue, to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude for your welfare, by which they have been dictated.

How far in the discharge of my official duties I have been guided by the principles which have been delineated, the public records and other evidences of my conduct must witness to you and to the world. To myself, the assurance of my own conscience is, that I have at least believed myself to be guided by them.

In relation to the still subsisting war in Europe, my proclamation of the twenty-second of April, I793, is the index of my plan. Sanctioned by your approving voice, and by that of your representatives in both houses of Congress, the spirit of that measure has continually governed me, uninfluenced by any attempts to deter or divert me from it.

After deliberate examination, with the aid of the best lights I could obtain, I was well satisfied that our country, under all the circumstances of the case, had a right to take, and was bound in duty and interest to take, a neutral position. Having taken it, I determined, as far as should depend upon me, to maintain it, with moderation, perseverance, and firmness.

The considerations which respect the right to hold this conduct, it is not necessary on this occasion to detail. I will only observe that, according to my understanding of the matter, that right, so far from being denied by any of the belligerent powers, has been virtually admitted by all.

The duty of holding a neutral conduct may be inferred, without anything more, from the obligation which justice and humanity impose on every nation, in cases in which it is free to act, to maintain inviolate the relations of peace and amity towards other nations.

The inducements of interest for observing that conduct will best be referred to your own reflections and experience. With me a predominant motive has been to endeavor to gain time to our country to settle and mature its yet recent institutions, and to progress without interruption to that degree of strength and consistency which is necessary to give it, humanly speaking, the command of its own fortunes.

Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration, I am unconscious of intentional error, I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors. Whatever they may be, I fervently beseech the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend. I shall also carry with me the hope that my country will never cease to view them with indulgence; and that, after forty five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion, as myself must soon be to the mansions of rest.

Relying on its kindness in this as in other things, and actuated by that fervent love towards it, which is so natural to a man who views in it the native soil of himself and his progenitors for several generations, I anticipate with pleasing expectation that retreat in which I promise myself to realize, without alloy, the sweet enjoyment of partaking, in the midst of my fellow-citizens, the benign influence of good laws under a free government, the ever-favorite object of my heart, and the happy reward, as I trust, of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers.

George Washington.

 

 

Famous Speech delivered by Pattrick Henry at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
March 23, 1775.

MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

 

 

She survived Hitler and wants to warn America

posted by Rob Kerby, Senior Editor

Kitty Werthmann survived Hitler.

"What I am about to tell you is something you've probably never heard or read in history books," she likes to tell audiences.

"I am a witness to history. 

"I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

 "We voted him in."

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn't so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

"We elected him by a landslide - 98 percent of the vote," she recalls.

She wasn't old enough to vote in 1938 - approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

"Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force."

No so.

 "In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn't want to work; there simply weren't any jobs.

"My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people - about 30 daily.'

"We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933." she recalls. "We had been told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

 "Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group - Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

"Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

"We were overjoyed," remembers Kitty, "and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.

 "After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

"Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn't support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

"Then we lost religious education for kids

 "Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler's picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,' and had physical education.

"Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail."

And then things got worse.

"The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

"We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

"My mother was very unhappy," remembers Kitty. "When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn't do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun - no sports, and no political indoctrination.

"I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

 "Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

"It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn't exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

"Then food rationing began

"In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn't work, you didn't get a ration card, and if you didn't have a card, you starved to death.

"Women who stayed home to raise their families didn't have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

"Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

 "It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps," remembers Kitty. "During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

"They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.

"When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.

"Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

"When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers.

"You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

"The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

"Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..

"After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

"When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

 "If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

"As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

"All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

"We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.

" Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn't meet all the demands.

"Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

"We had consumer protection, too

 "We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

"In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

"So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.

"I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

"I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

"They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

"As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

"Then they took our guns

"Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

 "No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

"Totalitarianism didn't come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom."

"This is my eye-witness account.

"It's true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

"America is truly is the greatest country in the world.

"Don't let freedom slip away.

"After America, there is no place to go."
