VOTE!

There are two memes being floated that bear some analysis.  One is the Left’s rise of the Socialism in the US – the other is the notion that Nikki Haley, an ultra right wing, could ever gain acceptance to run as President.  Both are extremes.  Both signal a massive shift.  Both convey the theory that the current parties, Democrat and Republican, are going to die.

Most people in the US are neither, most people describe themselves as falling somewhere in the middle, so how could these extremists rise to take power?

Both parties are perceived to be comprised of old fodder, old school.  People want vibrance – change!  This was the campaign that ushered in Obama – and it worked.  Division was instigated and massive-massive wealth was sheltered to a few.  The ‘youth effect’ is why Trudeau is in office despite being a complete economic ninny.  Macron. Campaigns are calling for the ‘youth vote’.  Why?   Because it has been on the fence and could alter the course of election.  Universities are the source of Socialism, they advocate it, support it, and recreate it so as to give it the appearance of the Garden of Eden.

Feminists are the other liberal skew.  Feminists lean significantly toward more socialist ideals advocating for everything equal-equal, welfare for all, and the redistribution ideal.

So, the Socialist shift is capitalizing on both the youth movement and feminists.

Who would vote for a right wing extremist hawk like Nikki Haley?

Ultra evangelicals won’t because they don’t believe in a woman President.   Moderate conservatives won’t because they aren’t hawks.  The only way Haley would have a chance would be if the only other option was a Socialist.  However, she could garner the hawks, and the remaining Swamp vultures which would skew the Republican vote and diminish a win.

The Democrat Party runs the risk of allowing the Socialist movement to continue gaining traction because it skews and divides liberal votes giving more traction to the alternate Republican or Right Wing.

It is and always has been about – DIVISION.

In 1912, four parties ran for office:  Democrat, Progressive, Republican and Socialist.   Teddy Roosevelt got in a spat with Taft, the Republican, and initiated a third party run as Progressive.  What he accomplished was a schism in the votes whereby Democrat, Woodrow Wilson won with 41.8% of the votes.  Had Teddy kept is pandering in check, the votes he and Taft garnered would have secured the election at 50.6%.  It was sheer pride stupidity.  Or was it?

It changed the course of history giving the Democrats control to usher in the Federal Reserve System under Wilson.  The Fed, the same Banking Cartel that became the shadow government and has ruled ever since. Wilson also found the US Constitution filled with corrupt potential and vowed to change it.  He supported segregation.  He advocated lowering tariffs, but to do so had to implement the new federal income tax.  And the people fell like slaughtered sheep

In other words, because of the implementations of Wilson at the behest of the Banking Cartel, the American people were thus levied an insurmountable income tax, and handed over our monetary system to the private control of the banking system named the Federal Reserve under the rule of unelected individuals.

Single handedly, Teddy was manipulated or in collusion to alter the course of this country forever by ushering in the pawn, Woodrow Wilson.

It was essentially a coup and the American people went down without a fight.

The parallels today are frightening.  We don’t know who to trust, who is lying, who is manipulating.  But if we aren’t careful, the disruptive of an undivided party will be death.

It was a game that altered everything we know today, created a disbalance of wealth, and relegated control of our country to the shadow government that today still controls the money supply.

Who runs the Federal Reserve, the private banking cartel that decides our fate?

Jerome Powell was elected to the Board by Trump.  But a quick look at his background reveals that he worked for The Carlyle Group whose cartel is well plugged in the Netherlands, land of the BIS, the core of money laundering and the mafia.  One of its founders, David Rubenstein is well entrenched in;  Council on Foreign relations, Harvard, Aspen Institute, Brookings Institute, World economic Forum, etc… etc… etc…

He is quoted as saying, “The only game in Washington is the Fed.”

One of the first Chairman of the Federal Reserve was William Harding.  Coincidentally, he was also managing director of the War Finance Corporation.  “The War Finance Corporation was a government corporation in the United States created to give financial support to industries essential for World War I, and to banking institutions that aided such industries.”

In other words, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve that controls all our money was also tasked with giving money to corporations and banks according to his desire… which is essentially how the Rothschilds, Roosevelts, Morgans, Chase, etc… made their wealth.  The war bank.

Bottom Line:  That was the beginning.  The Trump effect upsided their agenda.  But drawing on history, splitting votes as they did in 1912, would effectively realign the power giving it back to the Swamp that rules NOT from the US as many believe, but from The Netherlands, the EU.  Don’t split votes!

Vote as though your life depended on it – because it does!

Red October: The Socialist Revolution in the US

An interesting reference keeps popping up;  Red October. 

On October 25, 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution set in motion a Socialist coup in Russia, toppling and ultimately executing every member of the Tzar family of Nicolas II, including his five daughters, on July 18, 1918.   It was the Russian Revolution that ushered in Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Marx and ultimately Stalin.  This Revolution ushered in the Communist Soviet Union.

Lenin is quoted as saying, “The people have waited long enough for an armed uprising.”  And he gave it to them.  But little did they understand that the Communist block would separate a few from the many, and the many would suffer.

This is the same Soviet Union that drove the Russian people into poverty, that stagnated growth, that saw the assassination of 3.5 to 60 million people as Stalin sought to eradicate all those opposing the institution of the working class – slaves.  Despite the atrocities committed by Stalin, he was hailed Man Of The Year by Time Magazine in 1940 – and was a friend of both Churchill and FDR.  Yes, this heinous Dictator and Assassin, was lauded by our US President and the PM of Britain…

We continue to hear these same cries for an “Uprising” – only not in Russia, but in the US.  The cries come from Hollywood, from Liberals, from feminists, from prestigious universities who are moving from the traditional Democrat platform to a Socialist platform.   Not because they have the vaguest understanding of what it embodies or what it has done historically, but because – it sounds good…

Today, in that light, Obama has announced his endorsement of Ocasio-Cortez, a Socialist who has shown a complete and utter lack of knowledge, economic understanding, foreign understanding or relative business acumen.   She has no background of any content worthy of an endorsement, except that she advocates for a Dictatorship government aligned with the Red October Bolsheviks.  And that means absolute – Control.

Are we witnessing the same Ashkenazi Jewish revolt for power that was successful in the eradication of historical Russia for 70 years?  Is this the agenda for the US?

There is an alternate reference to Red October.  The Book – Film in which a submarine equipped with nuclear warheads could subvert it’s supposed mission as an anti-Russian vessel and actually attack – the US!  The concept being – who do we trust? Who is real?  Who is for the American People?  Is everything upside down?

Because the Swamp government would seem to want us dead, would seem to want America to fall, as we were considered one of two bastions that could not be controlled – the other being Russia.

The movie drama takes place between the 1980’s and 1990’s – which would coincide with the Clinton bid for Globalization Control.  And may be relevant to the destabilization that betrayal creates.

In either case, Red October does not foretell a story that is embraced as good, healthy and in our best interest.  It is a – warning.  And we need to be vigilant.  We need to heed

It reveals the fact that we have no idea who is for us – and who is against us – as our friends are our enemies and our enemies our friends.

While the division that has engulfed our country for the last five decades is very real and growing exponentially, the fact that Socialism has emerged as an alternative can actually serve to benefit the conservatives as voters on the left become divided.  These divides have historically ushered in candidates that would not have ordinarily won an election.   In that light, Obama’s betrayal of the conventional Democrat in favor of the Socialist is an interesting phenomena that could see a shift in the coming months and years… for more conservative draws.

I find it interesting that the same Hollywood that chastises the People for conspiracy theories, is itself the progenitor of Conspiracy Theories!   Hollywood has portrayed the corruption of government, the fraud of wars, the devastation of Big Pharma, ad nauseam… and yet, suddenly, they want us to believe that – oops, change of mind, change of logic, change…   The narrative is clear.   The Swamp has existed for decades.   The Swamp needs to be drained or we will be the next Communist controlled country.

Hold onto your books!  They will ultimately become our Truth!  And historically, we can expect these Truths, these Books will be destroyed, banned, eliminated from knowledge.

Because the burning of history is the ultimate means to control.

The Swamp – Historical Money Lenders

NEWSFLASH:  Former CIA Director likens Trump’s immigration policies to Nazi Germany….  Woah there pardner…   A)  Trump’s immigration policies were actually initiated by Billy Clinton, and B)   General Michael Hayden is mired in controversial corruption regarding warrantless surveillance, numerous criticisms for wasteful expenditures, CIA torture allegations, and for staffer rotations.   Gosh darn, that’s someone worthy of anti-Trump quoting and sentiment…

The stupidity of The Swamp is the fact that they continue to use ignorant members of The Swamp to call out Trump.   They are quickly noted for their ignorance and The Swamp engorges itself on self-destruction.   I am reminded of a children’s book by Eric Carles, The Greedy Python, which depicts the greed of a snake that is so self obsessed he can not differentiate between his prey and his own tail – and so he eats – himself.

That is the argument perpetuated by the Democrats, by Mika Brzenzski who offers no  explanation for her rhetorical rage, except spew.  For Hollywooders who have not even done the most basic of research.   For Accosta, for CNN, for the Washington Post who are busily spewing – and eating their own tail as their greed has no knowledge of truth.

When a former Hollywood icon comes out and disgorges profanity and illicits hate, they don’t seem to understand the depth to which they have fallen down the rabbit hole, and that they are now conversing with the Queen of Hearts.   Outside of Hollywood, they have no insight into the bigotry and depravity they embrace that the rest of the world cringes from in fear.  They haven’t even done their research 101.

And so, their rank stupidity – reigns.   And because they are Hollywood, or elite, or power balls, they have lost all sense of ‘rational man’.

Today, the media ranks the success of a person by the power they wield.   Not by their gifts, their love, their giving, their charity, or their heart – but by their “Power”.   This has become the coveted prize of success!

Even in the world of sex trafficking and porn, the overwhelming definition is in their ‘power’.  Billy Clinton wielded ‘power’ over his women.   Epstein. Weinstein.   Hillary.  Oprah.  The measurement is power.

Power in the Media.

Who controls.

And yet, the people succumb like mice abdicating their very souls to the power because we have been propagandized into believing that power is greater than heart.  It is bigger, better, more!

The media would have us believe that Merkel is one of the most powerful figures in our world.  Bill Gates yields more power…  blahblahblah.   What does that mean?   It means that their goal is to have everyone else submit to them.   It means they have placed themselves into the seat of God and demanded the submission of all humans to serve them as slaves.   It means they have – no soul.

Hollywood thinks they are immune because their money buys them a seat in ‘power’.   But they are even more foregone than they can imagine for they haven’t even the strength to fight, they are weak, they are easily manipulated.   And in the world of the power elite, Hollywood does not realize they are the first to be expendable.   For their ignorance.

In the world of the elite, the likes of De Niro, Streep, Lawrence, Griffin, Cusack, Brezinski, etc… are laughable pawns who will be shucked under the carpet when the Order of Chaos is reigned.   They will have no use.   No intellectual challenge.   A bore.  Easily manipulated.   And yet, somehow, they believe their money will buy them a seat at the table.

We have been truly beguiled by an altered version of history.   We support the evil, and denounce the righteous.   All the while being taught to uphold a people that is rife with secular ideology.   God has spoken time and again .  But we are not listening.   It is time to listen to the true teachings of the Bible.   Who perpetuated God’s wrath time and again?   Who did He seek to teach?  And who failed, time and again?

Hush.  We are not allowed to say.  But if we persist in looking for the truth hidden in our history, the truth rewritten, it will suddenly all make sense. 

Follow The Money…  FYI:  Money Lenders Historically

If they weren’t Jews or Christians – who were they?

Slavery Never Existed.

Apparently historians have decided that history needs some editing, specifically during the time period in which Egyptian Pharaohs used ‘slaves’ to build the temples and pyramids. Historians have decided that this is all a myth, that they weren’t really ‘slaves’, they were free laborers, conscripts, who were paid a wage and needed the work.   The basis for this shift is in the term ‘conscript’.   It is not unlike obligatory military service wherein housing and meals are provided in return for labor. Another term used to identify the laborers who built the pyramids is – civil servant. And civil servants require a ‘strong government’ body to … force them into slave labor.

Hmmm.

Is this some weird way of heralding in Social-Communism?

Of course there is the fact that a conscript in the military is not free to leave, as this would be considered AWAL, and grounds for court marshal, the terminology is rather obliquely conveyed to serve a purpose, albeit a strange one.

The entire basis of this new conclusion is the fact that a dozen intact skeletons were found in a shaft constructed of mud and brick behind the Giza pyramids. According to this conclusive evidence, historians conjecture that if they were slaves they would not have been buried, and they had to have been pyramid builders because their grave was behind a pyramid.

YIMINEE.

Interesting logic, not for its conclusion but for its absolute immature irrational thinking process.

Oddly, this same logic would seem not to apply to black slaves in Europe and the US who were buried, many with headstones and inscriptions.   Should we then conclude that the slaves in Europe, the white slaves of the Barbary Coast, and all slaves of history were not really slaves, but simply civil servants, laborers?

A friend shared with me that a man who is of black, white and Hispanic heritage believes that all white men should pay remuneration to all black men because of past slavery.   Of course, given that this man is partially white, wouldn’t his white part have to thus pay all black men?   And if we apply his remuneration logic, wouldn’t his black part have to pay all European whites for their Barbary Coast slave trade?   And given that Spain was considered a pioneer of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, wouldn’t this man’s Hispanic heritage make him libel to his black heritage and all black men?

He’d go broke.

Of course all of this is on the heels of the new agenda in which all white men are brutalized as having ‘white privilege’ for which they must be made to suffer and curl into a ball of shame.    But shame isn’t the real agenda, the real agenda is redistribution of $$$$.   A stage is being set for a special white privilege tax to be levied, lawsuits to erupt, and chaos to ensue.

So let’s do what the historians have done regarding the Egyptian slavery – let’s simply redefine it as civil conscription, i.e. a necessary service in order to build agriculture which benefits everyone…

And women were not really property or chattel, they were laborers who were ‘persuaded’ to have more children so as to benefit society with their added labor and protection.

Problem solved!! Slavery never existed.

Armenia Coup – Russia Next?

If you can’t break Russia – then you break all the surrounding countries.  That would appear to be the mantra of the Rothschild/Soros cabal as they purge Armenia of its President.   The conservative, Russia friendly, government has been ousted this week as youth protests mounted a call for his resignation and he – complied.  The head of the movement, 42 year old Nikol Pashinian, supports a liberal ideology that advocates ‘society as family’, a Communist approach.

An Armenian Coup.

The protests mirror the same target of youth who believe that Communism is an ideal form of democracy because then everything is free and they don’t have to work.   History is thus rewritten to idolize a perfection of doctrine modeling the Bolshevik Revolution which ultimately occupied Russia for 80 years.  The same doctrine that the US attempted to conquer during the Cold War period so as to create a free market system wherein bankers and elite strategized on integrating Russia into their block of world power.

It didn’t work out exactly as planned, and in response Plan B was initiated – takeover the surrounding countries so as to squeeze Russia.

Ukraine was toppled.  During the staged coup, it’s currency dropped 80%.   It’s GDP tanked.   In 2000, the economy was growing, GDP was growing, IT growth was its fastest growing sector.  Today the economy is considered the 2ndpoorest in all of Europe with Moldova ranked #1.

Surrounded by Ultra-Liberal Socialist blocs; Estonia, Latvia, Norway, Lithuania, and Georgia, the notion would be to create the belief that Russia is a threat to these Socialist countries so as to stoke a possible war.  NATO troops have formed barriers in these Socialist/Communist countries to encourage chaos.  The ultimate goal would be to eject Putin and replace him with a Socialist puppet – Alexei Navalny.

A member of the Progress Party which advocates switching the political system of Russia to a parliamentary Republic (ie the same as the Socialist Blocs), Navalny has been tirelessly attempting to gain foothold in the Russian government.   Having his roots in Ukraine,  Navalny utilizes the same tactics as other Socialist movements, inspire the youth.

The youth are a particularly naïve target because they haven’t lived a lifetime of hard work, their education has been infiltrated with a constant stream of Liberalism, and Communism is an ideology that has been twisted to imply welfare, social equality, wealth equality, income equality and fairness.

Like the media, education has evolved into a dangerous meme in which history is rewritten or even extinguished in order to promote a one world way of thinking wherein views must all align.   I grew up believing that the Bolshevik Revolution was an uprising of poor peasants against the evil Tsar Nikolai II who kept his people enslaved and in poverty.  In fact, the Bolsheviks came from surrounding countries and ushered in Communism and Marxism.  Their infamous leaders, Trotsky, Lenin, and Marx were all of Jewish ancestry.   Stalin’s Jewish background is subject to debate:  His original name was “Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili.   Some people have stated that Dzhugashvili was a Jewish name in that region. His firstborn son was named Yakov, which is also a Jewish name.  His second wife was purportedly a Bolshevik Jewess”.

It was one the largest coups in history and ultimately cost millions of lives.  The Bolsheviks had their sites on Russia, but they also had visions of a much grander domination, a global coup, according to Harvard historian and writer, Richard Pipes. Finding a history that has not been rewritten is quite difficult any longer.  It requires looking at books that have been written and cannot be altered to conform to a new agenda.   Researching online data – is not conclusive as it is subject to the edits of whomever.

While the Bolsheviks may have been uprooted in Russia, their roots thrive in the atheist cabal of Rothschilds – Soros’ – Rockefellers – Morgans and  Schiffs.   Although gaining foothold in Russia once again has proven to be an obsession, they are well planted elsewhere throughout the world.

WWIII – Operation Northwoods

In 1962, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Department of Defense and the CIA drafted a proposal entitled Operation Northwoods.   The purpose was to ‘create real or staged actions against military and civilian targets within a terror campaign, blame the resulting ‘effects’ on the Cuban government so as to provoke a justification to go to war with Cuba’.  

Sound familiar?

It is believed that Kennedy nixed the operation.

In addition, under the signature of Brig General Edward Lansdale, and with cooperation of the CIA, Operation Mongoose proposed actions to ‘provoke, harass or disrupt’ Cuba so as to incite – war.  Simultaneously, Operation Bingo outlined a plan to give the ‘appearance’ of an attack on US facilities in Cuba so as to derive means and justification to demonize Castro and incite war.

Sound familiar?

While the General who orchestrated Operation Northwoods, Lyman Lemnitzer, was removed from office by Kennedy, he was immediately picked up by NATO to become “Supreme Allied Commander”.  Obviously NATO liked his way of thinking.

Together with McNamara, Kennedy instituted a defense strategy of flexible response, meaning they held to the potential for massive retaliation, without necessarily actionable massive retaliation.  More like a threat, substantiated by a smaller actionable strike.  Sound familiar?

At the time, McNamara, who was Secretary of Defense, formally a Republican who switched parties in 1978, actively promoted – WAR.  He decisively encouraged US intervention in the Vietnam War, which didn’t go over too well, and after retirement was a trustee at the Brookings Institute, a far Liberal organization funded by The Gates Foundation, Qatar, Norway, Rockefeller Foundation and JP Morgan Chase.  OUCH!

All of which plays out “Something like Syria…”

Something like the demonizing of Russia using staged events against military and civilian targets:  MH Flight 17, Chemical weapons, etc… ?  The biggest issue of all the conspiracy notations with regard to MH Flight 17 is the fact that despite nearly 300 victims, there was no blood.  While multiple other inconsistencies are cited, passport irregularities, etc.., photos reveal – 20 minutes after the crash – there was no blood.  Anywhere.  An anomaly that can not be explained.

The Chemical Weapon and gassing in Syria has been debunked innumerable times with illustrations of staging, actors, and actors being used in multiple wars…

What are we to believe in a world wherein lies abound?

While it is suggested that none of the aforementioned Operations were carried out, there is no denial of the intent, nor of the rogue nature that seemingly overtook the intelligence arena.   IN 1961, John Dulles was Director of the CIA.  A proponent of coups, he initiated the Coup in Iran, the Coup in Guatemala, and The infamous Bay of Pigs failure.   As a result of his drastic Bay of Pigs Fiasco, Kennedy called for his resignation, which he submitted in December 1961.  He was Not Happy.

Despite his bitterness toward Kennedy, Johnson asked Dulles to be one of seven commissioners for the Warren Commission in the investigation over Kennedy’s assassination one year later. An odd choice.  But certainly convenient given Johnson was in the crosshairs as being conspiratorially involved.

Dulles was also responsible for making the determination that The Protocols of The Elders of Zion – was a forgery.  Also, an odd part of his job description.  But one the furthered the Agenda.

Of course, this all post dates the same tactic employed by the US in conjunction with the British and Dutch to engage in increasingly strident economic conditions focused on Japan in order to provoke them into war with the US at the behest of the Rockefellers who felt their oil interests were being unjustly challenged by Japanese trade. Japan attempted to negotiate with Roosevelt on numerous occasions, but was refused any compromise.   The ensuing war was orchestrated.  And we all know how that ended.

History repeating itself?  Or US repeating itself?   We do have a choice.

Knowing the CIA penchant for subversive Operations, aka, Operation Mockingbird, that never go away, it would not be terribly far fetched to assume that Operation Northwoods was anything less and is alive, well and proliferating nicely according to the Agenda.

Only this time the target is Russia.

Why?

Because Russia has refused to bend to the NWO, the Banking Cabal, and the Global Elite who desire to create a Globalization wherein – they rule.

In the meantime we are distracted with nonsense such as Facebook  having access to our privacy?   When in fact, our privacy was hacked by everyone decades ago?   Including NSA, CIA, FBI, and multiple “Analytica’s” under the tutelage of governments across the globe, the health industry, credit card industry, county and state real estate assessors, etc, etc.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg, a die hard Liberal who long ago gave his soul to Hillary and the Cabal has offered to sacrifice a ‘portion’ of his wealth ‘for the greater good’ via ‘pinkie swear I promise to do better’, while knowing that the pervasive data compilation is actually hosted by the CIA, the FBI, NSA, and every intelligence outfit in the US and abroad.

While history sheds light and makes the present day events much more obvious, the Agenda is to Bury history, so that we just – forget. 

As in:   An ignorant mind, is easily defeated.

Valentines Day: Christian or Pagan?

Pagan festivals?   There are Christians who attribute holidays to pagan rituals and denounce them as evil. But holidays, like people, can have historical significance based on however you view them. What is your perception?   Often in marriage a person’s ‘perception’ becomes so atrophied that they no longer see the good or positive, such is the understanding of various holidays – such as Valentines Day.

There are some Christians who denounce Valentines Day as a pagan ritual rooted in lascivious and evil ideals and actions. But there is another Valentines Day in which it is the embracing of love, faith and Christian martyrdom.   They both occur in February:

Lupercalia is the pagan version which purportedly was rooted in Roman mythology. It is ‘believed’ that its name was derived from lupus meaning wolf, and thus an entire story was created in which fertility rites, sacrificial rites and conception rites were observed.   Much of the perceptions of Lupercalia are vague and hypothesized. There is some thought that Lupercalia was brought to Italy before the Trojan War in 1194 BC. But there is really no absolute proof, simply conjecture.  

Februus was an ancient god in Roman mythology whose name signified ‘purification’ which included such springtime rituals as washing.   This would be aligned with modern day thought regarding ‘spring cleaning’.   Not exactly a pagan endeavor so much as a day to – clean…

The pagan concept of Lupercalia is based on ‘legend’. A Legend by definition is a story that has no authentication.   It is a fabrication.   And because this Legend occurs ‘supposedly’ on February 15th, Valentines Day is hijacked and within Christian fear of paganism, Valentines Day looses its other roots – love.

Saint Valentine of Rome, born in 226 AD, died on February 14th, 269 while imprisoned, tortured and martyred in the name of Christianity.   Some vitae ascribed to him state that he was beheaded while trying to proselytize then Emperor, Claudius Gothicus.   Other vitae, much later describe him as a Priest who secretly married couples so that the husbands would not have to go to war.   It is thought that while in prison he healed the jailer’s daughter of blindness and left her a note signed, “Your Valentine”.

While these too are legends adopted by the Roman Catholic Church and as a legend not authenticated, the concept is rooted in faith, Christian martyrdom, marriage and love.

Is it wrong to celebrate a Christian legend rooted in love, charity and faith?

Halloween has similar denunciation in Christian circles despite evidence that it is rooted in the Western Christian celebration of All Saints Eve, a dedication of remembrance of martyrs, saints and the faithful who have died.   Dating to the 4th century AD Halloween means “Holy Evening” and can be traced to Pope Gregory III’s founding of an oratory in St. Peters.  While the church changed the original All Saints Day celebration from April to three days ending November 1, the posture remains the same.

Although historical belief linked Halloween to pagan rituals, it is more likely to be the evolution of a Celtic festival “Samhain”.   Samhain was a ritual that recognized the end of the harvest season, the onset of winter which represented death, and the feasts and games enjoyed during this time of transition.   Bonfires were lit to keep the devil away.

Sometime around 1745, All Saints Day, and Samhain merged to form and preform the rituals that are now observed within Halloween.   It was the Christian church that ultimately hijacked Samhain in an attempt to quash the pagan rite and transform it into a Christian celebration of All Saints.  Still, Samhain’s roots were about the end of a harvest and the celebration of bountiful fruits.  There was no evil – unless you choose to root it in evil…

We have a choice. We can choose to perceive these days as having historically positive and loving reference, or we can choose to see them as belonging to ‘evil’.   And thus, in our minds it becomes what we perceive.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

Israel and Jerusalem – It is Complicated

The Palestinians are not a heritage, they are a nouveau creation as a result of WWI. Philistine defined a land – not a people. The present day “Palestinians” were comprised of various clans and tribes that fought against their fellow Arabs of the Ottoman Empire. The land never ‘belonged’ to them, they simply squatted there as Bedouins, roamers who refused to pay taxes. The land belonged to the Ottoman Empire, and when they lost WWI, Britain confiscated all the territories and divvied it up however they saw fit.

Today, 65% of Israeli Jews identify as secular or non-religious or atheist. But they are still the Jewish people, booted out of every country.

It is complicated.

It is these Arabs that have become a people without a home – and no one wants them. While the British and the UN created the problem in 1948, they have been unable to solve it.

The ‘discussions’ for a two state agreement, and there have been numerous, have been ongoing for fifty years with NO resolution. Still, the UN demands that someone figure it all out – because they can’t. What they can do is condemn from afar, like Pharisees on thrones. But even the nation that apportioned the EU land after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Great Britain, can’t find a solution that Israel and Palestinian Arabs agree on. Instead, they seem to want Jerusalem to become a non-entity city belonging to ‘the churches’; Jewish, Christian and Islam. Something like Vatican City – except that Vatican City belongs to one church – Catholic.

I don’t imagine they would be too keen on the idea of apportioning Vatican City…

Fighting between the ‘Palestinians’ and Israeli’s is a near daily occurrence and has been for fifty years. The UN has done nothing to resolve the situation. Europe has done nothing to resolve the situation. The Middle East has refused to partition any of the land on behalf of the “Palestinians” because they know full well that they themselves expelled all the Jews from their lands during WWI and again during WWII.

It was the British who initiated the creation of an Israeli state after WWII given the Jewish people had been extricated from their homes in Europe and throughout the Middle East. It was an acceptable solution and let the Middle East off the hook of reinstating what they had taken.  What it didn’t do was gratify the Arabs then living in Palestine.  However, NO Arab country was willing to take them in with the exception of Jordan which now houses over 2 million or about 1/3 of the population. Most of the Palestinians in Jordan live in refugee camps – they are not granted citizenship or recognized by their fellow Arabs. Isn’t that rather odd?

And yet, these same nations within the Middle East demand Israeli land be given to the “Arabs” living in Palestine, and most importantly, Jerusalem. But the Palestinians didn’t even exist as a people historically, so giving them Jerusalem has no basis in law, Biblical heritage, or fact.

The Pope has weighed in stating that everyone must respect the status quo – but the problem is there is NO STATUS QUO, and there hasn’t been for fifty years, it is a perilous angst that has no end.

The end game is – do nothing out of fear – and hope that a miracle changes the hearts and minds of – everyone. The absurdity of no action is to believe that ‘inaction’ will somehow create – action because of God’s sovereignty. But that’s not how it works. Action is a part of God’s sovereignty. Taking a stance will require – a stance to be taken.

The Jewish people, whether by culture or by religion, have been wasted of their homes and land and possessions that were confiscated by the EU and the Middle East. They were granted a paltry speck of land that is now called Israel, in compensation.   Despite the fact that the historical value is just as tremendous for the Christians of the world, most are quite willing to make a statement of ownership – because ownership does not mean anyone else is prohibited, it simply is a fact of title. Christians and Muslims alike may still visit. We don’t demand to be on the title proclamation! Because that isn’t important.

What is important, is finally making a decision, moving forward, and ending seventy years of endless tit-for-tat fighting.  

Sexual Immorality precedes The Fall

The ever deepening sexual abuse that is surfacing everywhere we look is truly a cavern of Hell. For the most part it has been completely ignored, completely enabled, and completely embraced – even coveted. It is a disease far more insidious than cancer and far more potent than any opioid.   What makes people go to the extremes that they do can’t be cured by a one hour sexual harassment class, or a gnarly wagging finger of reproach.

When a woman in the Philippines is willing to sexually abuse her 2 month old and eight year old while live streaming her acts for an audience in Canada, the UK or the US, the perversity of the world has truly consumed the soul. There are no lines, no boundaries, at all.

The fact that despite the turmoil we are currently just beginning to unveil, politicians will remain ‘unnamed’ and therefore continue without consequence is reprehensible.     Calling out a few to take the fall for the many, will not close the cavern. The stories are a fraction, a speck in the universe of the fall and decay of morality.

Still, in the midst of the media frenzy regarding sexual perversity, front page-center, they highlight a ‘Victoria Secrets Fashion Show’, wherein sexy models parade in garters and strings…   Why is this ‘News”?  While they aren’t ‘the problem’, they certainly are a contributing factor! Do you think those models haven’t been sexually harassed, abused, and assaulted? Don’t be naive.

They are no more immune than the children in The Philippines, the children in foster care, the children in orphanages who have been victimized for decades with little to no consequence to the massive ring of perpetrators.

The Franklin Scandal, the Savile Sandal, all watered, white-washed and shoved under the table while hundreds of thousands of children were victimized, and brutally murdered, sometimes as a part of demonic rituals. While the UK is still ‘investigating’ the claims involving over 1400 politicians, entertainers, sports people and the uber wealthy, the ONLY perpetrators that they will name so far are – dead, because they don’t want to sully anyone’s reputation…

Dead children.

And still, Hollywood claims innocence. Their ethics and morality in no way contributed to the situation we face. The movies, depictions, titillations, were all – okay. Their cover-ups were worth the money they gained. And to name the names is just not worth the cost.

Meryl Streep, who defended Weinstein, has now come out and claimed she was beaten to a pulp, watched as another person was beaten, all while Cher stood as a bystander.   But she isn’t naming who this heinous person(s) is, because she might not make any more money in Hollywood.

Who do you think develops the Dark Web?

The same people who want to unravel our world and create chaos within the grip of Hell. Laughing hysterically while Christians are falling, Jews are supplanted by secularism, and natural laws are nullified. Reverends debate the Creche, a shelter is sued for blessing a dog, cake makers are put out of business, but sexual predators? They get to skate.

The Darknet that hosts the child abuse, sexual exploitation, pornography and pedophilia, has been slowly coming to the surface, finding legal mediums to provide its service to a clientele that includes our husbands and wives, our neighbors, and our children.  The excuse is often, ‘well I was just curious’…  I’ve heard it before.

In Jim Nelson Black’s, Decline of A Nation, he enumerates historical ages which parallel our current course of self destruction:

“In ancient Greece, the first symptoms of disorder were a general loss of respect for tradition and the degradation of the young. Among the early symptoms was the decline of art and entertainment. The philosophers and pundits distorted the medium of communication. Rhetoric became combative and intolerant; intellectuals began to deride and attack all the traditional institutions of Hellenic society.

New thinkers in the society argued for “fundamental change” and called for giving the youth a “voice in society.” Without traditional guidelines, the young men grew wild and undisciplined destroying the old order. Slowly Greece devolved into a disreputable and lawless nation. The Romans conquered Greece in 146 B.C. By placing everything under military authority, they were able to restore order and bring back the rule of law.”

 Sound familiar?  It should.

Black notes that there are three aspects of decay; social, cultural and moral. He states that historically, this lawlessness is found in the degradation of youth, followed by a decline in arts and entertainment, the distortion of communication, combative rhetoric and intolerance, and ultimately the complete collapse of rules and order within traditional religious institutions of society.

New thinkers emerge demanding a ‘voice for youth’ in society, and a ‘fundamental change’. And without guidelines, the youth grow wild, undisciplined and destructive.

This is historic, and it is present day. It dates to 333 BC, to 146 BC, to the Dark Ages, to the French Revolution, etc… What makes it different today is the sheer magnitude. It has permeated every city, country and continent. The ultimate historical consequence has been – martial law.  Today, that would equate to The New World Order.  Because it is about reframing the world, not just a segment, or a colony, or a country.

As people succumb to this Dark World, they are giving up their souls, life has no value, infants and children are bought, sold, abused, and carved up without care.

But we still have a choice. We can choose to succumb, or not, as a person, a city, and a country. Respect, tradition, values, boundaries, rules, order, and religion define a society – and by definition, the absence – destroys a society.

Christmas Creche Controversy: St. Francis of Assisi

An Australian Reverend and theologian who teaches at a prestigious school also – blogs. His latest is a rant against “American” Christians (American Christians are a particular preferred target in this and other of his blogs) who take offense when crèches and other symbols of Christ’s birth are prohibited from displays because they are considered religious and hurtful. In his rant he likens these Christians as deplorable idiots for not understanding that these symbols are meaningless, and goes on to explain just how ignorant American Christians are.

OUCH!

It would appear this scholar, teacher, theologian does not know that as a ‘teacher’, or shepherd, it is not his job to kick his sheep, it is his job to protect them, nurture them and grow them.

I was reminded of Psalm 23, of a shepherd who is tasked with tending to the needs of his sheep, whether they need food, water, or lay caste, they are in constant need of a prod and a gentle hand. It is considered one of the most brutal undertakings a man can be called to in this world requiring a 24/7 workday.  The shepherd protects his sheep from predators, from poisonous weeds, from harsh weather, loving them without judgment as he is their guide, and their only hope for survival.

This Reverend would seem to have forgotten his role as ‘teacher’, and instead of tending his sheep, he chastises them, slays them with his tongue, and ridicules their ‘ignorance’ given he is so much better informed. He has placed himself on a pedestal of worthiness belittling all the lowly for their stupidity, despite the fact that their hearts are in the right place.

And in so doing, this shepherd displays a high degree of Arrogance and Pride.

It is the job of the shepherd to protect the sheep from wolves. It is not his job to turn the sheep into shepherds… But he would seem to be confused. It would also seem he doesn’t much like his sheep given they haven’t the theological acumen that he purports to have. But then, given his actions, his ‘acumen’ would appear to be rather short-sighted… and built more on a core of self kingship.

Perhaps this Reverend would be better suited in a different role, because as a shepherd he seems to feel that preserving the wolves, allowing the sheep to be slaughtered, and kicking them to get them to stand when caste, is a Godly way.

There is a second lesson this Reverend seems to be missing, that of the ‘tongue’. Given his stance as ‘teacher’ he is called to a higher standing than the sheep, and in unleashing his rather bitter plethora of anger, he reveals that he no longer wants to adhere to the guides of his Biblical calling.  And for some odd reason, he targets only American Christians.

He references the ‘ignorance’ of American Christians numerous times throughout his blog, high-lighting such references as to the barn, making claims that during Jesus birth he was most likely tended by a host of women nursemaids all the while bemoaning the depiction of a twig and moss structure as stupid and unrealistic. He is belligerent at the use of ‘donkeys’, claiming there is no such reference and donkeys didn’t exist. But St. Francis would seem to disagree, because he commissioned an ‘ass’, the wild donkey, as a part of the first crèche!

This Reverend takes deep offense to American Christians creating false depictions, and then creates one of his own… while apparently not having researched the history of the crèche, and making assumptions that are not revealed in the Bible.

All the while he has sort of lost the sight, the cause, the value, and the heart of Christians in his bitter quest to denigrate. Why?

He claims that keeping ‘historically inaccurate and culturally anachronistic religious displays in shopping malls isn’t a victory for the gospel at all.’ He further demands that good Christians should burn their nativity scene because it furthers false doctrine.

Saint Francis of Assisi would seem to disagree because it is he who is credited with the creation of the first crèche display whose function was to divert emphasis from gifts and restore Christ as the center. His crèche utilized human participants, live animals, including an ass, and was produced inside a cave. These ‘scenes’ became quite popular and the Catholic church is then credited with elaborating the nativity scene, dressing up the magi in elegant robes thus mimicking the robes of Catholic Priests, as well as adding elaborate marble baubles and various other animals.

These crèches then spread to Germany, Austria, Poland, and England as the popularity expanded.

Creches were not born of American Christians, despite Mike Frost’s prideful denunciation of American Christians.  German immigrants ultimately brought the original pantomime creche performances to the US in the 15th century. Southern Italy is credited with designing such elaborate crèches today that they bring tourists from around the world to view the creativity and enjoyment they bring to children and adults.

Artisans work with delicate diligence to produce absolutely beautiful exhibits throughout Italy, the Vatican and the Czech Republic. While the US creates less expensive models, which Mr. Frost finds quite offensive, the purpose is still the purpose – to remind the sheep and the wolves that this is the day Christ was born.

So, Mr. Frost, Mr. Scrooge, I imagine Saint Francis of Assisi is a might bit better shepherd and source of Christian reverence for Christ. And the fact that the crèche is symbolic in trying to remind us sheep that Christmas isn’t about Santa and reindeer, and snowmen, it is about the birth of Christ is a good thing born of heart.

Bah-Humbug.
