MAILBOX VIEW – A NEAR MISS!

November 14, 2017

You can get a pretty interesting view of the world from your mailbox –  a changing world.

junk mailbox mine

My neighbor and I stand side by side with our mailboxes.    The mailbox used to  bring a lot of things that it doesn’t,  anymore.  Paychecks.  Other “checks in the mail.”   Birthday cards and lots and lots of Christmas cards.  Letters from family and friends.

And letters from Pen Pals!  

Penpal stack

One of the joys of my teen and young adult years was to write to and receive letters from pen pals.  There were even magazines and sections of magazines devoted to introducing people to each other from around the world.   There are some I still wonder about and regret that our correspondence ended somehow,  but I have one pen pal who has remained with me and I count her among my good and precious friends –  across the ocean!

Today:    Our mailboxes hold mostly  Junk Mail.

junkmail

And lots of it.

But many years ago,  Hubbie had some advice for his family,  and he had learned it the hard way.    He usually went through the mail, tossing out all the junk mail,  keeping only the “important stuff.”   But one month he was fretting about not receiving a rebate check he had “gone through all the hoops”  to  qualify for.

He was sitting idly at his desk one day,  thinking of complaining to the company,  but just staring  at his little wastebasket which was nearly overflowing.    He looked at it, into it,  and there were a few “junk mail” envelopes unopened.    Sure enough, one envelope was from the same company that had sent  him the rebate.

So –  Hubbie said:   “Always open your junk mail;  it takes very little time,  and you may find something that isn’t junk after all.”

I don’t always listen to my husband’s advice.

Recently I got a big colorful envelope,  something about driving,  something about ENTERING A CONTEST – YOU CAN WIN $$$.   “ENTER HERE TO WIN”

Junk Mail brochures

Well, it was from Colorado.  I had just traveled there a couple months ago – briefly.  It was just a drive-through,  maybe two hours.   I just had to get from western Kansas to Wyoming.     But somehow  “Colorado”  had gotten my personal information.

I didn’t open this ” junk mail”  for  a week or two, until I had more time for it.   That’s a photo of the brochures I got for driving in Colorado and entering their contest.

“Junk Mail”  for a Toll road.    An Express Toll Road.

junkmail letter

 

“Express”  means:  You don’t have to stop to pay your toll –  they’ll send you a bill later!  (along with a chance to enter a contest).

By the time I opened the envelope to see what kind of fun contest Colorado was offering me,   I saw that I had only five days left to pay this toll bill –  or else!

I wonder –  if I hadn’t opened this junk mail, and if I had seen another  similar piece of junk mail from Colorado a month or so from now (with a “final notice” within),  well,  would there be a warrant out for me next time I drive out West?

(Sigh-h-h-h.   Yet another reason to drive  so slowly that I am just about under the speed limit.)

HOAX WEEK: A NATION OF . . .

October 26, 2017

statue of liberty

One of the Tactics of Marxism (by whatever name: progressivism, socialism, fascism, etc.)   is to make the population of their enemy organization or their enemy country to  feel shame for its own past.

cultural marxism

It’s an effective,  openly stated, and well-defined Tactic.   They have an amazingly “rich” vocabulary.  An arsenal of words and phrases to wear down the targeted organization or nation:   Exclusive.   Racist.  Cruel.    Oppressive.     Xenophobic.    Populist.  Nationalist.   Supremacist.

One of their accusations, now, against America is the erroneous phrase that “We are a nation of immigrants!”

No.     That is a Hoax.   If you believe that sentence, you’ve been Hoaxed!    Here is a Citizenship Naturalization Ceremony  —

cit cer

Such a proud day for those who want to become Americans.    Not just “American citizens” –  but Americans!

The truth is “We are a nation of legal immigrants.”     All of us legal immigrants (or their children or grandchildren . . .)   have assimilated into the existing American culture *  and take pride in being Americans.

This is the reason why so many of us children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those new Americans cannot speak the language of the countries that they came from!  They wanted us to know English!

Fr

Imagine you’re in high school and you are asked to draw a picture of “France.”   You draw around its Borders.    What is the official Language of France?    French.     How did France get to be the way it is?   You learn the history of France.

Italy

Imagine you’re asked to draw a picture of Italy.   You draw around its Borders.   What is the official Language of Italy?    Italian.    How did Italy become a nation?   You learn its history.

This is the famous criteria of a nation-state:  Borders.  Language.  Culture.

You can do this with the border of the United States.  You can do this with the official Language of the United States.   You can learn its history (but usually not from government schools).    Starting just from Modern History **,  the land itself was settled by French and Spanish Catholic nations, but the governing force  was overtaken by Englishmen.    Then the English colonies revolted and set up a new nation.

We actually have a culture based largely on English traditions and English history.   We study English literature.  We study  English civic traditions.

Freedom?  Equality before the Law?  

From the foundational Magna Carta.    (The Great Charter)

And the English in turn influenced by the Scandinavian  Thing —

Thing

 

That’s it.      “A NATION OF . . .”    A nation of legal immigrants who have come here wanting to become Americans and take part in is  culture with a determination to be Free to better ourselves and to contribute to our country as it stands.

Flag don't tread

Patriotism with Pride:   It’s a universal and natural urge all over the world.

_____________________________________________

.*  A Cultural Marxist, now,  would interrupt the conversation and insist that you acknowledge that Canadians are “Americans”  too;  and so are people who live in Mexico, and people who live in Brazil, etc., etc.    But conventionally speaking,  in context here –  “American” is understood to refer to citizens of the United States of America.

It gets to be an impossible burden just to talk in all their politically correct ways without having to defend yourself  from all the implied accusations.    Which is the point.    A Cultural Marxist intends for you to not make your point.   He owns the dialogue, then.

 

.**  A longer history will show that the people living here at the time of the 16th century had themselves come from  Asia,  the South Pacific, Polynesia,  the Russian area,   and from Europe with artifacts all up and down the east coast that materially originated in the European continent, before the last minor Ice Age ended, and from the northwestern coast of Africa.

 

 

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT

October 15, 2017

(Random thoughts after hearing a sermon and reading the mail))

Looking up     We had a very fine and inspiring sermon today, the kind where you know you’ve received a mandate to go out and take action – live your faith!   And I thank God for this man’s words.

In one small part of the sermon,  the word “compartmentalization” came up,  several examples given.   It was pointed out how we compartmentalize our faith away from our “everyday” life in society, or in school,  and in the workplace.  In the public perception of our society,  created by the media, we  compartmentalize our citizens into various ethnic groups.  And certainly, now, our political opinions keep us separated in our little “compartments.”

With the increasing implementation of Cultural Marxism into American culture,  people are taught to place themselves, and others, in  separate compartments and to look for possible injuries, insults, and wrongs done to them.    We are victims of something.   And the marxists are here to help.

Social media intimidation seems to be the first step.   (Remember the Benham twins?)  Rumors, innuendoes, implications, insinuations are enough to attract such negative attention that owners of small businesses have been forced to shut down due to “danger to their employees and families” —

Did you hear about the Cup It Up American Grill this week?

Coffe Shop

That was a sign the owners had to post on their coffee shop window after they had received numerous threats from those who opposed their private opinions.  Customers had to be told that the employees were in danger if they continued working there.  (Sorry,  I don’t remember the city this was in.  I didn’t think I’d be sharing this information.)

This comes across as a Cultural Marxist attack against private American citizens.    We can’t push back.  We can’t push back on events like this if we don’t know about them.   Our very Leftist entertainment-news media is not interested in telling us.

After accusations on the social media, or from wherever, often the next step is to consult a lawyer — and draw up a statement of  “you can’t blame us.”

So,  that Personal Responsibility Statement.   I found it on a ticket voucher that Son gave me for my birthday recently.  He had bought tickets for me and for him to see Jay Leno on stage at our local performance center theater.   Here is the statement:

Wharton Center offers a diverse selection of arts and entertainment. Not all productions may appeal to or be appropriate for every person or for all ages.  Therefore, patrons are responsible for making informed decisions regarding their ticket purchases.

Now that’s troublesome!    In a sane society of mature adults,  with integrity and  common values,  such a statement  “goes without saying.”    It is common sense.  The caveat is so obvious that it is internal and needs not be articulated:    “Not everything is for everyone.”  In addition,  a  healthy society would not be presenting offensive events to us as “entertainment.”

Mature adults would instantly recognize what is not appropriate or  “comfortable” for them – and put it out of their minds.     (There is commonly deceptive advertising and misrepresentations of course –  but then you just quietly walk out.)

Compartmentalization.  It’s being done to us.   The results are a fragmented society that cannot even talk to itself about what is going wrong.

Divide and conquer.   We’ve all heard that before.

 

 

 

 

 

OCTOBER 13 – FROM FATIMA TO THE NEXT PURGE

October 13, 2017

(Once, long ago,  the whole world was purged.)

purge flood

We don’t usually think of the pipes in our house – unless something goes wrong,  so wrong that you actually have to call in an expert:

pipes to purge

If the “expert”  finds a void space, an air pocket,  or some kind of “wrong-doing”  that causes an obstruction,  the plumber-expert will  have to purge your pipes:

Purging pipes

That’s like a “purge” — a  whoosh! —   every obstruction is blasted out of the way by a powerful Flood of water.

When this was scheduled to happen to the whole world many ages ago,  Noah was given the task to construct the only safe place to be during the purging Flood –  and,  what we don’t think about very often:  Noah was given  about a hundred years to preach and to warn and to admonish the people to come back to God.

A hundred years – for the world to mend its ways.

October 13, 1917 – October 13, 2017.    It’s been a hundred years now, a hundred years to the day when more than 70,000 people saw the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, Portugal. I’ve written about it here,  and the story is all over the Web with varying perspectives.

As in the days of Noah,   people are the same now,  people don’t really change, free will gives them perfect freedom to reject God — but when most of the world did (reject God)  in recent times,   the world received another warning and predictions similar to what Noah received.

Watching the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima,  October 13, 1917:

fatima crowd

Not only those present,  but thousands of people up to twenty miles away who were unaware that they were going to see something strange and awesome that day.

fatima crowd sepia

It really happened.  I sometimes wish I could have been there among the crowd and saw what they saw.

Preceding this event were five other visitations containing admonitions, warnings, and predictions,  including the prediction that “something” would happen in the near future,  in October, 1917,  that everyone would be able to see —  so that they all would believe.   And then,  it really happened.

These five summer of  1917 apparitions presented the so-called Secret of Fatima,  or often called  the Three Secrets of Fatima because the warnings and predictions came in three separate parts.

All three Secrets involve the coming “purging”  of the world again,  but not by water,   by fire:

Hell

Today I’ve read three brilliant essays from three different authors in three different places, all pointing out that this purging of  the earth that’s promised to us  won’t destroy only individuals who reject and offend God,  and not only whole nations whose official policies depart from the Goodness of God,  but also  the Church itself,  which is supposed to be the most pure conduit of the graces of God.

A fiery purging of (1) people, of (2) whole nations,  and of (3) the Church.

Fifty years after the Miracle of the Sun, we apparently didn’t get the message.     A little pause, and then in Akita Japan the message was repeated, somewhat more explicitly to Christian people   (and again through words of the Virgin Mary):

On October 13, 1973, Our Lady of Akita (Japan) told the visionary Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa that heresy would occur within the Catholic Church: “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees (other priests)… The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”

And then a description of the “Purging.”

“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son.

 

In the first quote,  Sister Agnes was told that heresy would become widespread in the Church –  right from the very top.   At Fatima the heresy was described as “Russia”  spreading her errors throughout the world . . .  even, as we now know,  into and within the Church.

2 Marxists understanding each other

Heads of states and officials in power at the top  and  head of the Church and “bishops and cardinals”  will all be infected with Marxist ideology, something long condemned by the Church itself and by previous (Catholic)  popes.

Nothing personal,  but those two pictured above are two  enemies of the Church, just going by their words and by their actions.   But, hey,  they approve of each other . . . .

Did the World heed the 100-year-long   warnings of Noah?     No.

(Purge)

Has our current world heeded the 100-year old warnings of Fatima?     No.

( _______)

You know what’s in the Bible, the words of the first Catholic pope:     When the time comes for this to happen,  people (in general)  will mock and ridicule the idea.  But:  For this they are wilfully ignorant of, that the heavens were before, and the earth out of water, and through water, consisting by the word of God. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. (The first purge by water)  . . .       But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of the ungodly men

(II Peter 3:  5, 6, 7)

Although these words say “for the judgment and perdition (destruction) of ungodly men,”  at Akita we were told that the good and the bad alike will suffer under this rain of fire . . .    whatever that will be.

Happy 100th Anniversary,  Fatima.

(That sun doesn’t look very friendly.)

CODA TO THE LAST (LUDDITE) POST

October 2, 2017

The last post was decidedly anti-technology,  even as I use and enjoy all our digital technology; and yet,  truthfully,   I have never discovered a technological “achievement’  that was not a mixed blessing for us  humans.  A very mixed blessing, actually, with the mix almost always bringing more unfortunate results than blessings.

So why is mankind continually inspired to increase the power and the reach of technology?    Why does the Enemy of God and Mankind lead us further and further away from living naturally and in harmony with our planet and further and further into  an interconnected digital and artificial world?

Oh, we are easily led.  Easily convinced that we can make the world a better place with electrical connections and artificial living.   We – Mankind – can solve all our problems, with science, with technology, with . . .  well,  many of us remember the DuPont ad that told us  “Better Living Through chemistry!”

chemistry

But we have a very precarious dependence upon all this technology.    (See Puerto Rico today.)    This all seems to have a life of its own.   Where is this all leading?    Why do we keep getting new inspirations from  “out of the blue”?

In other words,  why does the devil need this technology?

Because, the great Enemy of God and Mankind is NOT omniscient,   all-powerful,  all-knowing, almighty.     To spoil this beautiful   planet earth and its inhabitants  he needs help;  technological help.    technological  help to see everything, to see everyone, to know everything that’s going on;   to know where we go and what we do and what we are thinking.

I wrote of Catalonia a few posts ago.

The Catalans have voted overwhelmingly to leave Spain and be their own independent country.   This goes counter to the great mandate to create a one worldwide totalitarian state.    It’s not pretty over there, before and after the election.   Spain is appealing to Brussels,  to the EU.   The desire for self-government must be stopped.   So stay tuned.

So that’s the coda,  the little addition to yesterday’s post:    Evil exists.  The Evil One exists.    And his method for managing  “all these human beings”  is the tyranny of a totalitarian state.

Communism/Socialism/Progressivism  is the enemy of free and independent human beings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GATEWAY DISCONNECTED, INHUMANLY SPEAKING

October 2, 2017

Out of time:   this is a post that is unedited, unchecked, perhaps ill – considered, hastily written…..

(Some of you may know what a “gateway” is on your laptop of PC.  It’s the way it connects to your modem and thus to the Internet.   My main PC, my communication/ research/ study/  entertainment/  information  “gate”  was cut off by a Trojan and/or virus;  repaired;  brought back to the repairers,  who cannot understand why my “gateway”  is now missing.”)

(Help, anyone?   I am NOT going to go into the DOS window and enter new numbers.   Yet.   I don’t think.   And I’m reluctant to spend mucho bucks – again – to have another repairer look at it, and not know what to do.  Again.)

I’m thankful for my little laptop which is not up and running.

During this time my little California family came for a visit.   There was NON-STOP activity.   Even late into the night.  If activity “stops”  around midnight or so –that’s  THREE 0’CLOCK  in the morning here in the Far North.

I have to run off to class pretty soon — a not very- well- prepared- for- class – but the class is very smart and they’ll do the thinking work for me.

So it is that after this afternoon class,  it looks like I’ll have my first chance to slow down and think a little,  and maybe catch up on news and thoughts  (random thoughts)  here in the Spruce Tunnel.

Meanwhile,   please consider this thought taken from the writings of Solange Hertz.    She summarizes my thoughts about this modern age,  this oh, so inhuman “modern age.”

(Me and Ms. Hertz) :     There were three events that we know of in human history that brought us back to the Stone Age.

One is the persistent story of Atlantis, and specifically, the reason for its destruction, following the unimaginably increased wickedness and hubris of the Atlanteans.   What was their crime?    It was the development of artificial technology based upon the use of “electricity”  or “energy”   generated from some sort of crystal technology.   (Just from hints given to us in ancient writings. by people who had long since lost knowledge of that technology.)    The Atlanteans became dependent upon that technology in their everyday lives, and though it produced wonders of communication,  material wealth,  tranportation,  etc.,  the people forgot their connection to the earth they lived upon and the Creator who made it and them.

So –  boom! – something happened to Atlantis.   Was it a thunderbolt from Heaven –  along the lines of Thor?   Or did the Creator allow their amazing civilization to be destroyed  by the very technology which created their (artificial and godless)  civilization?  Did their own technology become too powerful to control?

Did that catastrophe set off the events that produced the worldwide Flood that is recorded in every single native tradition on every single inhabited continent?

Second event that brought us back to the Stone Age:    The Tower of Babel.

Long derided as a superstitious mythical event that ignorant ancients used to explain the existence of many “languages,”   what followed the building of the Tower of Babel was no mere “confusing of the languages, ”  but rather a worldwide “influence”  that affected the minds of human beings causing an inability to communicate and the subsequent development of human cultures that were foreign to all the other new human cultures.  It goes far beyond just language, but involves varying approaches to reality,  mindsets,  attitudes,  ways of thinking,  mores, understandings . . .

And since one small group of people could not understand or appreciate another small group of people,  small groups,  families,  small clans,  moved off into other territory where they could be safer . . .  and rule over places  far distant lands.

Mankind could no longer gather together to produce whatever technology was inferred by “the building of a Tower”  and the grand desire for mankind to “Make A Name For Himself,”  which is, by the way,  the meaning of the words used to describe this endeavor.

The Tower of Babel was emblematic of the domination of the world by a single governing power that  was sufficient onto its own self.   No god needed, thank you very much.    The Tower of Babel represents an outright rejection of God the Creator –  and the use of technology made this possible.

For a time.

The world seems to be broken up into a divided, warring mess.

Of course,  one must eventually and inevitably come to the conclusion that humanity without its Creator is a dead humanity.   Dead and condemned (since humans have a never-ending soul their is a never-ending death . . .  also called Hell)   It is the abode of an evil entity,  the Enemy of God,  who hates humans with a passionate,  supernaturally strong hatred.  This enemy wants us ruined and “dead.”

So what do we have now?   Technology.   A world dependent upon technology away from and apart from the planet earth, which actually could provide everything humans need to live and to thrive.

Again, enter technology.   A wedge between us and our earth.  A wedge between us and our Creator.      Electricity – based upon moving electrons.  Delivered to us at frequencies which are harmful to the human body.   At strengths  which can kill us.   Generated by harmful processes,  not the least of which is nuclear-generated electricity which  we are suffering from (though so far we can ignore that)  and that our planet will suffer from for thousands of years to come.

Electrical devices which are way too costly and which harm us a nd interfere with our biological rhythms that could have kept us healthy.

And electricity which make it possible for us to be surveilled,  controlled,  and eliminated by the gathering world power – inspired, of course,  again,  by that great Enemy of God who wishes us . . .  dead.

. . . . .

And just how will our near-extinction event occur, the one that will of necessity bring us back to another STone AGe?

 

 

 

NIGHTFALL

August 13, 2017

“And the evening and the morning were   (the next)  day . . .”    (Genesis)

Pond at Night

Looking out my back window tonight.      That’s the moon reflecting in my pond and three solar lights in my butterfly garden.

Darkness has descended.  Darkness makes a fitting division from one day to another.  Shut out all the issues of one day;  another (new) day will some.    And I am happy to leave behind today’s events in Virginia and the ensuing attempted attitude-adjustments by the Leftist-controlled media.     I’d like to form my own opinions,  thank you very much.

Maybe I’ll do pictures in this post to make up for no-pictures in the last.

The demonstrations in Charlottesville today and the Global-Socialist counter-demonstration that fought against them presented some big problems,  but the solutions do not lie in proclaiming our opinions one way or the other,  making quick pronouncements about “what is wrong,”   descending into name-calling in order to make a point.

I guess I stand with the president today when he said we need to analyze this,  investigate it, figure out what happened and why.   And all that before we can tell each other how to fix the social and civil problems we have.

Here’s my contribution:

As I taught public school for a few years,  I witnessed the deliberate destruction of American values by the new curriculum and the introduction of Socialism  into the minds of the children.     The children weren’t “victims”;  they were to be the new tools of Social Change.

They didn’t know that American values are opposed to Socialism’s values:

free_not_equal_equal_not_free

 

And they were not taught what could happen under some socialist governments:

Socialism Try Again

 

Yeah,  why not try it here?   How about some practice and a standing ovation?  —

Standing Ovation

Yeah, that’s the president of the un^it^ed  st^ates . . .  disguised as “Julius Caesar”   in a recent play,  much promoted by our hate-filled media.

Celebrities teach our children to have bad attitudes ready to display:

children's celebrities

“Children,”  or superannuated children.

We permit mindless slogans:

We Hate America

 

Slogans against America;  slogans against the president — any president:

dump trump people

 

The   young man who drove from Ohio to crash his car into the demonstrators today is said to have anti-Trump sentiments on his Facebook page — although that information has not reappeared anywhere.

car crash

 

Leftist counter-demonstrators today   “fought flags with fire”:

lighted spray

Disrespect embedded in —  what?  Am I supposed to say “only a small group of people”?    Okay –  then why no public disapproval  from public voices?    We ought to be publicly and loudly “disrespecting”  these people.

Because small groups of people can spread hatred and violence like a cancer spreads into the body,  into the body-politic.

We’d better watch what we teach our children —

Librarian for childrens hour

—  and we’d really better try to educate ourselves.

That’s a great project, because the rehabilitation of our society is done one person at a time.       Read!      And push back at the attitudes that lead to action that threaten our republic.    That’s like sitting outdoors in a comfortable chair in the sunlight –  and swatting away the wasps that might come your way.

Here are a couple suggestions:

If You Can Keep It  by   Eric Metaxas

Inventing Freedom   by  Daniel  Hannon

George Washington  by  Ron  Chernow

and . . .

happy face        . . . . .    most Westerns!

 

_________________________

Most Americans who are 50 years old and under have grown up in an atmosphere saturated with socialist principles alongside  American values.    They are incompatible.  One side will win out over the other.        One side is deliberately trying to win out over the other.

But this could be correctable.

I’m feeling  better already!    I love the night!       A new day comes next!

 

AUGUST ASSERTIONS

August 8, 2017

atom bomb the

I don’t usually let  August 6 and 9 go by without some note of gratitude that I exist.  I’m here.   I’m alive.    And so, therefore,  are my son and daughter and grandson.    (Oh, yes, and  my baby sisters.)

Here’s my Dad:

Dad in Dress Blues

He’s in his Dress Blues,  Marine Corps.     It’s the photo that gets taken to show your Mom or your girlfriend that you’re doing okay in the service.

But when you’re 18 years old in 1945,  the Marine Corps is not a safe place to be, although neither was the whole world.    He and about a million others were en route to the South Pacific for that one great last offensive to put a stop to Japan’s aggression.   (Better read about those horrors, if you don’t know them.   It’s not a matter of “moral equivalence.”)

It was summer,  1945.  My dad said he and his unit were sleeping for weeks on a huge hangar floor, on their duffel bags, waiting for the planes to take them to California,  and then on to ships that would take them to the fighting.   Casualties were expected to be very high.

And then it was August 6th.

And then it was August 9th.

And finally, after experiencing two atom bombs,  Japan surrendered, and my Dad’s unit was not sent  . . .  he reunited with his young wife . . .   and then later I came along.

By every account, from my Dad and his friends, his commanders,  from the military leaders,  from civilian analysts,   those two atom bombs saved the lives of a million or so  young men  from America and from other countries,   because the war ended.

You can hardly call that “an assertion”   because it was the actual well-considered consensus.

Much to my surprise – and disgust –  in these recent years  I’ve heard the assertion:  “Oh, no, a million lives wouldn’t have been saved.”   Simple assertion.

The anti-American rhetoric coming from the socialists has revised the history of World War II;    and since their aim is total pacifism, even in the face of military threats to us,  the ideology which produces that false assertion is:   “the use of atom bombs (knee jerks here) is so reprehensible that no amount of saved lives is worth it.”

“And so besides,   no one knows it would be a million . . . .”

This would be my Dad’s  regular uniform:

Dad PFC

Ready to die.

So for me,  for millions in my generation,   for maybe your mom and dad who exist because the atom bomb was used,  let’s pause to be glad we exist.

Let’s not celebrate these atom bombs, but let’s look clearly and weigh all the alternatives.   Let’s not throw unsupported assertions at each other.    There are many, many books written in the 1940s and 1950s that deliver some very sobering analysis of what was going on in those days.

As always,  if you want to know some history, let the people who lived then tell you what happened.

I happened upon an article that said during the Cold War, when the Soviets were actually threatening us,   the ratio of our nuclear weapons to theirs was 13 to 1.    Overkill,  I think,  but those are the facts.

Today?   The ratio of nuclear and nuclear type weapons is  1  to 4.     The rest of the world has four times as many (nuclear) weapons as we have.

map nk

In today’s news there is one tiny nation that is actively threatening the U.S.  and showing us every few days that they are becoming capable, or are capable now,   of hitting   Alaska or Seattle or San Diego or Hawaii  with a nuclear weapon.

I don’t know . . .    if Hawaii is hit,  is Hawaii worth going to war over?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, R.I.P.

August 4, 2017

Beloved son.    

Today is his first birthday.   He’d be one year old.

Mother and son.

Cherished and wanted.

His name is Charlie Gard, and his “mistake”  was to be born with a mitochondrial disease  which makes him  “unwanted”   and “not”  valuable   —  to the State.  Doesn’t matter which country  because this kind of State authority is developing in all Western nations where Christian values are being destroyed.

(In Judeo-Christian cultures,  the helpless, the poor, the sick, the needy, the unwanted are given attention, love,and care.    “As you do it unto the least of my brethren,  you do it unto Me.”    Undeniably, that teaching originated with Jesus.    Remove Jesus,  and you invariably lose  His  teaching. )

This loved and cherished son was dying of his disease,  but the State would not allow his parents to take him to doctors in the United States where there was the possibility that his life could be saved.  U.S.  doctors are researching this disease and hold out some hope.

But Charlie’s State authority would not let him take advantage of the research.   The parents applied for “permission”  to take their own son to the United States,  and they did not get any answer other than no,  until Charlie’s condition had become so much worse that even modern research would likely not be able to help.

Both British and European Union  Court authorities imposed the full strength of their authority against Charlie and his parents.

So Charlie was dying.

The parents wanted to take him home, in a comfortable, personal, loving  environment for as long as his little life would last.

But the System  said they owned Charlie.     There are no parental rights.   The State-run hospital system refused to allow the parents to care for their own son.

Charlie died,  just days short of his first birthday.

His parents,  Chris Gard and Connie Yates,  had enough money to use to travel and treat their son.   Now,  instead, they are using that money,  one and a half million dollars,  to set up a foundation to help others who struggle against both children’s disease and the loss of parental rights.

In this country,   the Barack-Hussein person and his followers put forth into our laws the Unaffordable Health Control Bill, which has far-reaching consequences,  among them the State-prescribed death of the unborn,   the very, very sick young,   the very,  very sick,  and the very, very sick elderly.      It’s too expensive to help the helpless.

The State is in control.     A very, very “sick”  State is in control.

 

 

 

WETWARE DECEIVED (Starvation)

August 4, 2017

One more point on “Wetware” and then I return to . . .   the usual.   But caution.   Because the Truth is NOT staring us in the face.

Starving human

The man in the photo has dignity and worth and value and is worthy of our attention —  our love and care.

The man is someone’s brother . . .  son . . .  father . . .  friend.    Africa.    An abundance of food has been sent from America,  Russia,  and many European countries.    It’s waiting for him at the seaports, in ships,  and it’s growing older, in some instances,  or it’s being transported elsewhere,  where  his government can make the most profit and distribute the most power and influence.

His government is a powerfully entrenched Leftist governing force —   the “Errors of Russia”   (which did not originate in Russia) are at work, against this  “little”  man.    Because he’s not rich or powerful.  “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”

I mentioned the “Errors of Russia”  because this phrase was used by the Apparitions in Fatima,  1917,   with warnings and predictions which seem to be coming true.   One of the little children,  Jacinta,  had a powerful vision that year,  which she perceived was about the future of the human race.

In the vision appeared the pope, in  a church,  on his knees,  alone, praying and weeping.    The little church was in the middle of a vast field, filled with countless numbers of humans who were starving to death,  crying out for help,  weeping, dying.     Jacinta said she had the impression that they were not just starving for physical food,  but for spiritual food.

And then she said she had the impression that the Church, the Christian Church,  was in deep trouble.

The man in the photo above is a metaphor, then,  for our own human spirits  being starved for lack of  spiritual food,   spiritual Truth.    Like the man in the photo,  his Food is waiting for him;  it’s just not being delivered.  As a matter of fact,  it is being withheld from us all with the intent to  keep information and truth in the hands of the very few.

Here’s how this relates to the Artificial Intelligence I’ve been writing about:    The method of keeping people in a  state of deadly starvation is Deception;  the mechanism  is the proliferation of lies and distortions by means of our “modern”  communication technology which can make anything appear to be anything.

It’s nothing new or surprising.  Nothing unusual.   One example:   My generation grew up on this slogan —   Better Living Through Chemistry!  the advertising campaign sang to  us cheerfully.

better living

What is NOT contaminated with  “chemicals” now?

Today we are deceived by cheerful news about vaccines, cell towers,  colonization by third world migrants,   the medical industry,   our education system;  and truth is regularly withheld concerning the stock market,  political investigations,  globalization,  war, crime,  the ongoing disaster in Fukushima   (and nuclear power plants around the world),   and worse, for our spiritual starvation:    historical truth,  moral truth,  religious truth.

Today in the news   (not the “mainstream news)  was an article about Google’s new AI program that roams the com boxes looking for “toxic religious beliefs”  that are then censored.     Facebook regularly removes conservative  secular and religious sites.   Another article shows that YouTube has reduced the number of conservative,  religious videos by 50% –  and more traditional beliefs being censored all the time.

Starving human face     Like sheep, we are being herded into one global viewpoint,  as we starve for Truth.   There is agony,  unrest,  uncertainty,  mortal danger,    because we can’t function without the free use of our intellect,  and we can’t freely use our intellects in a climate of Deception.

I wish for my readers an awareness of the pervasive atmosphere of Deception.  And then I wish for everyone the strength of will to search for Truth.     And I wish for the courage to choose Truth.   And I wish for the fortitude to fight for the Truth.

The method (of our spiritual starvation)  is Deception;  the mechanism is communications technology,  facilitated by not human intelligence  but Artificial Intelligence that we’ve just  recently perceived to be not so easy to control.   Deception is made easy.  

Poster AWAKE

I don’t seem to sleep much,  but when I do sleep, I sleep deeply.     Then it’s painful to wake up!     I hate waking up — until I do.

And then it’s wonderful to be alive.

 

 

WETWARE DEFEATED (speculation?)

August 2, 2017

Remember,  we  are the so-called “Wetware,”  as opposed to the Software that is growing up all around us.

And Software doesn’t mean the little program you download into your computer or phone so that you can do things;     “Software”  encompasses the whole growing organism that is fast becoming Artificial Intelligence.

But it’s only “artificial”  from a human point of view.  I don’t believe it considers itself artificial but rather real and vital,    and for that reason,  it must be self-sustaining,  self-protecting,  and self-developing.

I know I’m going to wish I had written this differently, more coherently, and better supported my assertions,  but I wouldn’t have space here to even summarize all the articles I’ve read about AI.

We’ve got a problem:

AI Problem ours

I know it says that the AI Engineers have a problem, but they’ve been throwing Artificial Intelligence into our systems so rapidly that it’s our problem too.    We wouldn’t know how to stop the problem,   but,  it would appear,  neither do the AI Engineers and IT people know how to solve and/or stop the problem.

We’re not talking about  the friendly, helpful cyber robots who were built with the Three Prime Rules * that protect humans from robot harm  as projected by Isaac Asimov.    What we have is  an unseen web of communication from one Artificial Intelligence point to another.    AI to AI.    And we have observed their coded speech.

Now, IT people wanted them to be able to talk to each other.  They could communicate more rapidly and without “mistakes.”   Systems which depend upon AI are more efficient and allow for even more development of cyber systems that would make life easier  . . . and more efficient.   (The Internet of Everything?    Cheaper,  faster,  more abundant living)     

We want them to be more efficient.  We want them to learn how to be more efficient.  We need them to be able to talk to each other.

ai language j

An AI language set

 

Problem is,  they learned how.  They did learn how to talk to each other, and they are doing it by creating a language known only to them!     That means they are discussing cyber-routines,   concepts, and making the necessary decisions on their own.   And we can’t understand what they’re saying!

How could this be?      Well, from an older article on     recode  .  net:

“We think that if we slowly increase the complexity of their environment, and the range of actions the agents themselves are allowed to take, it’s possible they’ll create an expressive language which contains concepts beyond the basic verbs and nouns that evolved here,”       (the researchers wrote).

And corporation after corporation,  big ones and small ones,   are catching on and in realizing the danger,  they are asking the IT departments to shut down the programs that rely on Artificial Intelligence.

The Facebook corporation is just the most famous and recent to shut down their dependence upon the AI bots – while they still could.

Increasingly today, AI bots are being used to manage  consumer logistics, utilities and the flow of energy,  nuclear power plant operations and electrical grids,  our missile defense systems,  military information,  stock market algorithms,  and the management of information database systems –  our personal information.

See any danger here?

It’s not going to be a Minority Report World.

It will be a Skynet World.    (Do look that up!  . . .  The Wetware were defeated.)

The best known set of laws are Isaac Asimov‘s “Three Laws of Robotics“. These were introduced in his 1942 short story “Runaround“, although they were foreshadowed in a few earlier stories. The Three Laws are:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.[1]

Near the end of his book Foundation and Earth, a zeroth law was introduced:

0. A robot may not injure humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.

 

We’re not worrying about robots today.

 

 

 

 

“WHAT’S GOING ON IN AMERICA?!”

June 1, 2017

As a former teacher,   I clearly remember the problem when a gang of little girls start a whispering campaign against someone they don’t like –

girls 1

      –   and then come to me tattling about all the bad things their enemy does!   There is NOTHING like the  vehemence of their rather sincere accusations  — which are nearly always false!     Doesn’t matter;  they’re enjoying themselves.

Men –  I mean boys do it too.

girl boy tattling

It gets annoying after a while.

_______________________________________

I’m going to “lift” a sentence from the beginning of the previous post:

I see there has been a lot of hysterical,  illogical,  non-scientific   non-legal pronouncements coming out of Mainstream Media,  Social Media,  and Hollywood actors and actresses.

I guess that works.    I was away from news sources for a while – and then I came back.  It’s almost astonishing,  not quite but almost,  that people in the entertainment-news media who want to be taken seriously are still talking about the Story Without Substance.

The story that every official keeps saying   “there is no evidence for this.”

I made a quick list of phrases  used to apparently prolong this Story Without Substance.

Ready?  Here is a partial list of words and phrases that give you clues about how false/fake the story is:

a new report charges . . .
possibility
U.S.   officials briefed   (but on what?)
unnamed sources
allegedly told   the idea was brought up . . .
it was suggested
unverified       (unverified reports, rumors,   etc)
no reply to our questions  (no reply implies . . .?)
recent reports of possible collusion
news came via anonymous letter
anonymous officials reviewed the letter
looking for suggestions of
the contact was not identified
“reportedly”
supposed meeting
latest claim says  (…  bla bla bla …)
the alleged request for . . .
could be coming from
nine sources say . . .  (unknown unnamed sources)
checking into . . .

 

Recognize these words and phrases?    It’s just a partial list,  you probably know more.

It’s like psy-ops.   You are encouraged by these words and phrases to assume there is some substance to the story that the President or his election committee or his presidential campaign or his family or his . . .   (fill in the blanks)  have colluded with the Russians to defeat the Poor Sick Lady who blames the Russians for her defeat (among other reasons).

No wonder I read in foreign presses that America seems to have lost its mind;   “what is going on over there”?

Not  one fact;  but the accusation persists.

They must be having fun.    Pathetic.   Immature.   Annoying.

DEAR YOUNG PEOPLE: THREE WORDS

June 1, 2017

After today’s announcement about our country’s non-participation in the Paris Accords,  I see there has been a lot of hysterical,  illogical,  non-scientific pronouncements coming out of Mainstream Media,  Social Media,  and Hollywood actors and actresses.

I trust  there are many among us with love for our planet,  love for our country  (The United States of America),  a love for science and invention,  and a can-do attitude.    Therefore,  I give you,  the up-and-coming generation,  THREE WORDS:

Zero.   Point.   Energy.

 

BIG BANG

 

Zero.  Point.  Energy.   (it goes by other names and there are variations)

_______________________________________________________

 

  1.    It’s all around you;  you just have to find a clever  way to get it.

 

2.   It’s challenging, dangerous work;  don’t get killed.

 

3.    “Fossil” Fuels  are not made from “fossils.”    The planet isn’t about to run out of  smooshed dinosaurs – and there is no such thing as peak oil.  Therefore,  you have plenty of time for this project.

 

4.   “Solar power”  and “wind power”  require more electricity  (generated from coal, etc.)   to create its electricity  than what these techniques can  even generate.      So far.    It may take a very long time to make this technology viable.

 

5.   It will soon become apparent to all just how lethal nuclear power plants are.   It is the most deadly way humans have ever invented in order to simply boil water and generate steam.

 

The three words:  Zero Point Energy.    The old-timers will laugh at you;    but you will be on a righteous mission and you’ll save the planet.

Just keep your newly discovered technology:  Open Source!

 

 

 

A BRIEF COMMERCIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

May 9, 2017

(I have these once in a while,   commercial announcements.   Usually they’re about something I’ve just found out about and am delighted that it exists. )   

wi fi jiggly  This has been me for the last few weeks,  sitting at my computer with a tangle of RF fields around me.   I know that’s a cell phone signal strength photo,  but it feels the same on my body.  It hurts if I’m there too long.

So there’s something  wrong with the electrical fields in my house which magnifies signal strength and electrical surges.    My TV got zapped once again, and I’ve been without television- watching for almost three weeks.  (It’s all being repaired right now as I’m writing, so I’ll soon have a TV again…..)

However,  what I learned,  being without all the entertainment-news that the alphabet channels present to us,  is that nearly all the news is  not  accurate,   or it’s  distorted, or flat-out not true.    And overwhelmingly against the president (and any conservative, somewhat Republican, viewpoint).

(Now I don’t think that President Trump is any kind of Savior for our country.  Maybe.   But likely not.   It’s just that the alternative would have been so destructive to all of us that we’ll settle for what President Trump might be able to do . . . )

A recent study, however,  by some independent communications outfit showed that 89% of all news programming showed President Trump in a negative light –  nasty things said about him;  suspicions;  innuendoes;  criticisms;  opposing views;  supposed errors;  and accusation after accusation after accusation – without any supporting proof.   The American public and the world is being trained to “hate” Trump and all he stands for.

Check out, for instance,  the “images”  of Donald Trump that search engines will give you.  (See below.)

I’ve gotten used to hearing a news segment and then mentally “ducking”  for the anti-Trump onslaught that is sure to come.

So,  without my TV,  I’ve been “forced” to watch the news over the Internet –  and there is a LOT there to choose from!!   Streaming everything from every country you’d want!  It takes only a few moments of watching local news (on the Internet)  to  remember how awful the Mainstream Media News is.

So here’s my “commercial announcement”  —     OAN news.  Streaming 24/7* on YouTube.   You’ll get a few short  commercials between news segments,  but you’ll also get some well-done segments showing some great event in American history — and you don’t even have to “duck”  for the cynical comments that would normally follow.  Just really nice informative spots that showcase something good in American history.

OAN   –   One America News:     news without the attitude adjustment.

 

_______________________________________

 

.*    Actually I found it by searching on YouTube for “F o x N e w s  s t r e a m i n g.    Then I clicked on the Fox News Streaming 24/7 –  and got  OAN news.  Maybe there are other ways to find it.

Try it out.   What a relief not to have to listen to how you are supposed to “feel”  about each news segment.

MEAT IN THE MODERN WORLD

December 2, 2016

Or maybe I should call this post:  MEAT BECAUSE OF THE MODERN WORLD.

 

Meet my meat:

my-beef

They’re fine (Scottish) Highland cattle, big shaggy things.

Contented:

my-meat-contented

They do well in  pastures here in the Far North,  and their owners let them graze  on grass during their whole lives.    Even when it’s time for their lives to end,  they are not “force fed”  vitamin and chemical laden grains to  add marbling (streaks of fat) to their muscles in their last six weeks,   which is what happens to a lot of “grass-fed”  cows.

I know their owners personally.   I don’t mean they’re “friends of mine,”  but I have come to know them, talk to them,  and respect the way they handle their herd and the way they handle the meat and bring it to  market.

(From an informative flyer):

my-meat-source

They’ve patiently answered all my questions and taught me a lot about what makes good meat.

I’m a meat-eater.    It’s in my genes.    My gene pool has been traced back 11,000 years (if you can trust the  gene-tracing company) —  and my family certainly came from a protein oriented culture (deep cold-water fish like herring and haddock and cod;  eels,   trout, salmon,   fish eggs, seals, walrus, and the occasionally bear and reindeer. )

So I’ve always taken meat for granted.

Until I learned how “modern”  industrial cattle factories have corrupted the meat supply and turned “meat” into something unwholesome – and not really very tasty, either,   compared to these:

my-meat-looking-at-you

It’s more expensive to buy a cut of real meat.    I know that.   But you can really get away with eating less.   You’re satisfied with  a smaller piece that is very tasty and full of nutrition.

I know this modern world and all its broken promises.     You have to pay more, sometimes much more,  just to keep even with the quality of the past.    That’s the challenge.

It’s “quality of life.”      Sometimes we just have to slow down and pay attention to the Quality of our lives.

We actually honor our Creator when we take care of the body He has created for us.    And so . . .   food is  a moral issue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLOODY FUNNY – BLOODY ODD

September 20, 2016

I don’t think I’m swearing in that title.      I don’t usually.

But I  really am going to talk about blood and bloody stuff tonight –  so please don’t read if you need to stay comfortable . . .   and uninformed.

Good-bye:

teardrop-green

 

So first a couple attempts at humor.  One guy created  this chart to make his point,  that the Western World has changed, advanced,  corrected its faults, and become better throughout time.

comparison-islam-thru-history

And then there’s this bit of humor . . . showing how difficult it is to understand a culture so different from our own:

sam-umbrellas

I mean no ill-will, and this is actually rather self-mocking,  self-deprecating humor.

Except –  it’s not so funny for the women who have to live like that.   Recently some women were allowed to be nurses and work at a hospital:

sam-nurse-cover

They were allowed to be nurses as long as they covered up everything but their hands,  and they had to prove that they weren’t wearing nail polish.   That’s why the ladies’  hands are being held up and outward.   So the men can inspect them.

See a similarity between the two photos?   When does “humor”  lose its funny-ness?

Deliberate Misdirection:

We get into serious territory.   If you looked into the issues behind this weekend’s “news” stories,   you may have discovered more serious information about the situation that is developing rapidly in the United States.  But if you heard about the he said-she said “drama”  about who said it was a “b*  om * b”   (they both did)  but if he said it, he was being “irresponsible and reckless”  and when she said it,  she was being “steady.”

Remember hearing that?    That was the entertainment-news media misdirecting our attention – away from any serious analysis of the problem.    Ha ha.    Stay comfortably funny.

We were also told that the timing of these latest attacks is very serious because the UN in New York will be hosting its periodic meeting of the General Assembly.

Where the Global-Socialist Rulers of the world plan their plots.    And assessing their use of their latest  cultural manipulation tool:   let’s call them “refugees,”  so nice people will be fooled.

Inside the UN  building:

un-prayers

The Barack Hussein person in the United States just celebrated Eid al-Adha – in the White House, with a nice, big dinner  (at our expense).     I hope the entertainment-news media explained what the “celebration”  is all about.

Because they celebrated it in a huge American baseball stadium on the other side of our country:

american-ball-stadium

This is the “bloody” part of the title of this post.   Because after the prayers and ceremonies were over,  they began to sacrifice animals there,  according to reports,  according to custom.  

Because that’s what is done this time of the year:

sac-animals-280

(I’ve kept the pictures small.   They’re really quite  overwhelming.   The Daily Mail from the UK gets the credit for these photos, taken in various countries.)

Animals are sacrificed “in honor of”  Abraham’s near-sacrifice of  his son.    

Now,  Christianity is all about the sacrifice of Jesus,  the Christ,   the Son of God,  which broke the power of sin over us.   All the sacrifices that were spoken of (and performed) in the Old Testament pointed to Christ’s one-time holy and efficacious self-sacrifice.  But Moslems do not believe that Christ died on the Cross, so . . . . 

Streets run with blood.   And this time,  this year,  in one large islamic city,   it rained –  washing so much blood away that the streets turned into red rivers.

rivers-of-blood

So from the humorous “umbrella people,”  to the odd coverings on nurses,   to the march of Islam everywhere,   in every continent,  in every government, even directing the world’s  “government,”   we go from humorous to serious,  because the “march” is really happening.   

There is a serious situation developing right now, as we saw during the knifings and explosions and shooting of policemen in our country this past weekend.

The “situation”  is called  dhimmitude.

Better look that up.    You need knowledge in order to make goo ddecisions,   but  I’m not “sanguine”  about the knowledge of my fellow-countrymen.

And pardon the pun.

JULY IN AUGUST IN HISTORY

August 2, 2016

No,  this isn’t a hot-summer-weather report.    It’s that “next post”  that I referred to in the last post.

The information starts in the early 17th century.   In the Americas.    Each nation or empire had a king;  each colony was loyal to that king.    And yet . . .  yet  somewhere in the future it was predicted that nations would no longer have kings and queens, or at least a functioning monarchy.

Nations would be “republics.”   Like Ancient Greece attempted.    Like Ancient Rome tried for a short time.   A form of government that promised so much but left so much open to corruption and failure – and misery for the citizens of the republic.

And worse.   There were more predictions.    In the future,  three hundred years into the future,   religion,  the foundation and strength of every civilized nation,  would be disparaged.  Out of favor.  Rejected.   Mocked.     There would be a great crumbling and corruption of the Church itself.   It seemed insane.   An incomprehensible future.

A great apostasy would occur.    All  the new republics would one day become the enemy of religion.  Their official policy  would be to keep religion out of the public sphere,  to destroy religion.

Parents would stop teaching their children about the Good God and about our salvation.  A great number of evil   “books”   would  flood the streets of the cities,  disrupting society,  degrading manners,   corrupting adults and even children.

The century in which this would occur (begin) would be the 20th century.

These prophecies were written down,  lost, and then rediscovered “at a time when they would be needed,”  which turned out to be the late 19th century —  just  in time to warn people of what was coming, and perhaps to become mobilized, motivated to turn away this disastrous century of the future.

The warning had come from Heaven, and Heaven was not unaware that people remained indifferent to the fate of future generations.  (That would be us.)

And so,  in 1917 — almost too late to stop this disastrous century from developing —  Heaven visited Fatima, Portugal.   Our Lady, the Mother of Christ,  spoke words of warning to three little children — three who had not yet been corrupted.  Three little children who were so innocent and unlettered,  that they did not even know who or what a “Russia” was.

But they did report to those in authority over them that Our Lady has warned that if the world does not repent and turn back to God,   that “Russia”  would spread her errors.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

And to prevent that from happening,   the pope along with the bishops of the world,  will have to pick a day in which to consecrate “Russia”  to the Immaculate Heart.

(Catholic stuff –  that just seems to have come true.)

Russia will then convert to the Catholic faith –  and the world will have a period of peace.

Satan, the devil,   fought off this consecration with a period of Diabolical Disorientation.

And now we’re all mixed up.

We call it Political Correctness,  but what lies behind this is Diabolical Disorientation.  We are dizzy and disoriented, just as the Bible says happens to all those who reject God:  “their intellects are darkened.”

So,  right?    Have the prophecies come true?

Here’s another one, closer to our time, but same message.   I had hoped this year to write on the 13th of every month, in remembrance of the six months that the children at Fatima were visited. . . .  I missed July.

On July 13th, 1917,  the children were visited again.   They were told several things, some “secrets,”   but also, suddenly,  the Lady opened up her hands and rays of light came down to the earth and penetrated the earth and revealed such a frightful scene that they all later  reported they were scared half to death.

Hell

A deep, large, and wide hole had appeared,  full of fire, and worst of all it was full of something like lumps of burning coal, black, but on fire,  and in the shape of horrible distorted animal figures . . .  and moving up and down in the currents of the heat were distorted, burning human-like figures,   which were crying out in pain and agony and despair  . . .tormented by the  horrid beastly entities,  but the human souls could not die.

The children could bear to see no more.

But from then on the three young children doubled and tripled their efforts to pray for souls, and to do penance on behalf of those who do not believe in God,  and to plead with God to “lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need.”

So that’s some of what happened on July 13th,  1917.    It verifies the seriousness of the prophecies of the early 16th century, when Our Lady  (Our Lady of Good Success)  came to the Americas,  to warn.

The messages — all the secrets — were especially meant for us to know today.  Because if we don’t know about them or do anything about them,  The Errors of Russia would indeed spread.

What are some of these Errors?

Communism is an atheistic ideology that ultimately denies God’s natural order and natural law, which God inscribed on the hearts of men. Denying God, Communism attaches divinity status to the Party and to the State. As such, Communism transfers all personal responsibility to the Party and totalitarian state. Denying natural law, Communism rejects the basic rights to private property, and monogamous, indissoluble marriage two indispensable pillars of a free society. Dictatorship is not a chance fact in Communism, but the logical and necessary consequence of its ideology. For strategic reasons, Communism may take on different political forms, including apparently democratic ones, and hide behind varied labels. Already in the 1930’s, the Communist Party launched the so-called policy of the extended hand, in which it showed to the outside world a smiling, friendly face . . .”      and today they call themselves Progressives, among other things, and they still wear a friendly face and promise good things  . . . and they control nearly every facet of our everyday lives.

So has this prophecy also come true?

I don’t care how cute they make the logo.   I found out today that you are dealing with a Robot.

(“Within ten years robots will outnumber humans in the workplace.”)

The robot-software deals with the interface between the bill-paying software and the human.

Yesterday I got a big shock to discover that somehow my Auto-Pay feature had been shut off, without my knowledge, without my permission,  and with no notification and no provision for how to pay the utility bill in some other way.

Robots don’t deal with customer complaints, so I had to wait until this morning to talk to a human being.     She confirmed:  Your AutoPay has been removed from your account.  I’m pretty sure I gave her nice answers and questions . .  .  but I was a little breathless and stressed out while I tried to communicate.

She admitted that the utility company*   had a “glitch”**    last month in the AutoPay section.   No explanation why we weren’t notified until overdue bills were sent out.

THAT’S  your notification?   “Your bill is past due” ???

So that’s my warning.   AutoPay robot servicers are not reliable.    There will be no warning if this happens again.

I had to hang up, call back again,   to get another robot in order to pay my bill, which I did by feeding him numbers.  Numbers, after numbers, after numbers.  I guess that’s how robots talk.     And robots don’t say they’re sorry.

I have to call back again to re-set up AutoPay with another robot.     It will take about two months for the robot to get it going.

Meanwhile – do I guess how much to pay next month?  Do I guess when the due date is?

No,  I plan to bug those telephone robots every two weeks, until I regain my confidence.

Did you catch that earlier?   —

(“Within ten years robots will outnumber humans in the workplace.”)

And we don’t have a choice.

And this is not in the Humor category.

.**  I suspected and still fear that this “glitch”  might have something to do with my refusing a Smart Meter on my house last month.    They are a fire hazard;  they are not UL (Underwriters Lab)  tested for safety;    and they are a health hazard to everyone, but especially uncomfortable to the electrically sensitive.    They are NOT mandated by any state or federal law.  They are part of the global system of “human management” for a “sustainable”  planet – not a good thing!

I will be paying punitive fees each month to receive a digital, non-emitting Meter,  which, while it doesn’t emit harmful RF and EMFs,   is still a fire hazard.  You can Google “smart meter house fires.”    Maybe that’s something else you should keep checking.

Keep a fire extinguisher on hand!

RED-GREEN for Father Hamel

July 26, 2016

Here is Father Jacques Hamel,  (martyr)   Rouen, Normandy,  France:

Father Hamel

Well, he doesn’t look like that any longer.   R.I.P.

(Nous sommes France!)

Today is a day for anger.   For me.    Good causes for ranting.   Days like today I want to be a Man and put on my Viking armor, pick up my Battle Axe, and DEFEND my family, my clan, my tribe – because no one else seems to be doing so.

The Swedish blood in my veins boils.  Not just because the “Chicago”  of Europe is  now Malmö, Sweden!    Rape and murder capital of Europe.      Not just because Swedish girls are told to protect themselves by wearing bracelets that tell their attackers-from-foreign-lands to   “Be Nice.”

And not just because Swedish girls are now being told maybe they should wear a burka, when going out.  Wear a head scarf if you don’t want to be attacked.   In your own land!    Right in front of the noses of the men and leaders whom their Viking forefathers would be ashamed of.

Pahhhh!      These Swedish men would be afraid of their own Battle-Axe!   And that goes for all the liberal Swedish females who are trying to be  men-leaders.

A whole violent political movement has declared war on the Western World,  Europe and North America, specifically.     They have declared it many, many years ago.    And since there has been NO response from the Western World,   they have had to repeat their declarations of war many times – and they have had to demonstrate their declaration of war, over and over again.

No, they don’t think we’re deaf.     They think  we’re are weak and effeminate.   We cannot pick up the challenge.      We are theirs for the taking.    And nearly every day we hear of their “Taking”  — with knives, machetes,  bombs,   and guns of all kinds.

Not clean kills either.    I’ve told you before it’s very “messy”  to slice through a  throat and cut someone’s neck off.    It takes practice and lots of strength.   That’s why I showed you photos of the little toddlers being trained to take off the heads of their teddy-bears *. . . .

But I don’t need to show you photos of the aftermath of brutal rapes and beheadings and disembowelments and burnings and drownings and crucifixions.   They’re all over the Internet.

Because they want us to know.

Because they’ve  declared WAR against us.    It’s in their book. 

So from now on when I write about these Warriors of the Crescent Moon god,   I will write about them in Green.    Their chosen color.

And when I write about the Deaf People in the Western World who ask us to be kind and forgiving to these Warriors,  I shall write in Red.    I will indicate dhimm-witted people by Red.    (Dhimmi-witted, that is,  because that’s what we subjugated people are:  Dhimmis.)

These Crescent-Moon Warrior Extremists killed Father Hamel today;  terrorizing him and the people in the church,  just as their ancient leader said to do.  He wrote in their book to use Terror in order to conquer **,    and he left them his explicit examples.     These Warriors humiliated the good priest and the people inside,  during the solemn ceremony of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,    then jumped up on the altar,  then yelled things in their language,  then sliced through Father Hamel’s throat.

And then they published threats of further similar deeds to churches in the UK and in the US.

father burning statue

SOON!   It says.   And that’s our Statue of Liberty on fire.      Because the whole world should be a caliphate of the Desert-Warrior Crescent Moon god.     Submit!!   Or die.   Do you NEED a citation for their authority?      Koran (Surah) 33:36:    “It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision.”      You don’t HAVE an option.   The Crescent Moon god has decided for you!

And what is the brave response to this threat?

Some political leaders in Europe are asking us not to “make this a religious war.”    “Not to make this a war between religions.”      It’s not.   It’s a war of political and territorial conquest.    And we are being conquered in the current phase of this centuries-old war.

The archbishop of this area in France,  the one who is in authority over Father Hamel and is supposed to be his “shepherd”?

He speaks about his “sadness” at learning of the killing.  And then:  “The Catholic Church cannot take weapons other than those of prayer and brotherhood among men. I leave here hundreds of young people who are the future of humanity, the true ones. I ask them not to give in to the violence and become apostles of the civilization of love.”

Fight back, you young men and women,  with “prayer and brotherhood”?      You want prayer?   There is a young nun fighting for her life today –  also knifed in that church today.  Pray for her!

A Cardinal-Archbishop (of Manila,  Tagle)  expresses his grief,  prays for France,  and then says:      This “unhappy incident will help us understand in what way we can carry out the Social Doctrine of the Church,” he added.

Social Doctrine is needed?

The pope “asks the Lord to inspire in all thoughts of reconciliation and fraternity in this new trial, and to extend to everyone the abundance of His blessings”.

Reconciliation to . . . ?

The man that was put into the office of our presidency  (the US)  and who was raised as a Sunni Muslim in Malaysia said recently:   ““For Muslims across the United States and around the world, this is a time of spiritual renewal . .  .”   as he celebrates a major Muslim holiday.

Oh, speaking of “recently” –

Timeline

Lots of deaths missing from this timeline,  but they were making  a limited point.

“Points”  have to be made about this war that has been declared against us.    We all have to think clearly about this. ***   “Points” are being used to attack us.   Maybe “points” have to be used in response.

My Grandpa fought in World War I.  My Dad fought in World War II.   My cousin fought in the Viet Nam War.      I always wondered when the next “hot war”  would come,  when we were being attacked and killed.

A SMALL ADVENTURE

May 3, 2016

Small.  Inconsequential, really.    But our lives can be a series of small “adventures” if we invest a little time and attention.    Here’s a “small adventure”  from my recent trip to Indiana.

So . . . how interested in baking powder are you?     Ha ha ha ha.     Me neither:  not much.

clabber can

My mother-in-law was looking in my kitchen cabinets one day  (looking for something, it was okay),  when she called out in surprise, “Oh, you buy Clabber Girl too!”    Our  mutual choice of the Clabber Girl brand was one of the few things she and I had in common  (other than her son).

She said her own mother always used Clabber Girl.   That would make it about a hundred and twenty year old tradition!

I had a six hour drive home from Indiana and about twelve hours to do it in.   And I discovered that Terre Haute had a Clabber Girl museum.  Indeed, it was the headquarters of Clabber Girl.     It was easy to find . . .

I told myself to be interested.   Kind of like a “forced field trip”  when you were in school and someone told you where to go.   I’m my own schoolteacher.

Found the factory!

SAMSUNG

This is the real deal:  a whole big factory for making baking powder.

Parking was a problem though.   They had a parking lot nearby —

SAMSUNG

—  but I didn’t know if I qualified as “approved.”      Might not be.    But I had my pedometer attached to my body,  so I didn’t mind racking up a few extra steps.   Eight city blocks worth!

SAMSUNG

I walked past several factory buildings along those blocks.

hulman name

Anton Hulman, Sr.   Founder.   The Hulman name is prominent around Terre Haute.   Of such details a successful game of Trivial Pursuit is made.    Or maybe Jeopardy. . . .

This is the entrance I wanted:

SAMSUNG

That was some bake shop inside!     Soups,  sandwiches,  and the most desirable baked goods!   And then the museum.

It was huge – and delightful – inside.  The exhibits were made with care, using actual  objects and furnishings from olden days.  And someone kept walking around with a tray of warm cookies,  made with  Clabber Girl baking soda,  of course.

Here’s part of an authentic Pig n Whistle:

SAMSUNG

Yep –  a tavern.   Looked inviting,  except for a photo of a “floozie” on the wall.  I’m not that kind of girl!     Apparently,  everyone knew what  a Pig n Whistle was:   the “boy”  employee had to go down to the basement periodically to bring up more whiskey in a pigskin container.   And to prove he was not taking a nip or two on the way up,  he had to keep whistling so his employer could hear that he was being honest!

A store –  with  ration coupons available:

SAMSUNG

My grandma shopped in a store like this.    Come to think of it,  my great-grandfather owned a store just like this –  although with more meat available.  He was a butcher.

Well . . . here.  Someone sent me an old newspaper clipping —

Vierela's Store.jpg

Interesting?   Well. . . . .        Well,  if you’re ever going to imagine what it was like to live a hundred years ago,   now’s the time,  while you’re in this museum.

Vehicles were prominent displays –

SAMSUNG

Baking powder –  right to your doorstep.

And a genuine Hansom Cab –

SAMSUNG

Sorry,  I’m not too mechanically inclined, and I can’t explain to you all the wonderful new technological  advances this cab represents –  gears and cranks and levers and lower center of gravity for increased stability . . .   but I remember that the driver rode on top – and he was the only one who could open that front door to let the passengers out.    It was the height of comfort and luxury.    I just can’t understand why.

But I can understand this one!!  —

Gorgeous!!!   Turns out Anton Hulman, Jr. bought the Indiana Speedway   from Eddie Rickenbacker   –  The World War One flying ace hero!

You know what the cross decals on his plane are for.     Western Civilization owes him a lot.

I think he’s sitting in the same car that I was standing in front of  —

cl eddie

He loved flying in planes and flying in  racing cars!

(And how about that NASCAR race this weekend at Talladega!!   One man said they ought to have had an air traffic controller there because there were so many cars flying airborne in a record number of crashes! —   So who would have guessed that I would have become interested in auto racing?!)

Well,  you get the idea of the museum.  It was soon time for me to find the Powder Room.

SAMSUNG

An actual “powder room”  !!      Museum exhibit?      Of course I tried the door and went in!

SAMSUNG

Gleaming shiny new —  not an antique!  I think I was glad.

It’s almost time to leave the museum,  but first we must pay some respects.

The Hulman family brought the Clabber Girl company through hard economic times that caused many other big businesses to fail.     No government bailouts then.  Through careful management they came through a couple national depressions and two world wars.

SAMSUNG

One of the Hulman young ladies was in the army, WWII.  They did their patriotic duty in every way possible —

SAMSUNG

Take time to consider this sign.   Everyone participated in the war effort.    It wasn’t fun,  but it was sacrifice for a bigger cause — and Americans thought their country was worth saving,  worth fighting for.

Hats off to you, old man. . .  Mr.  Hulman.

SAMSUNG

I left the museum and began the long walk back to my car,  out into the present-day world.

I won’t call it the modern world;    we are post-modern now.  We have left the greatness and bigness of the whole  modern world far behind.     We are not growing,  inventing,  solving problems,  living with confidence,   celebrating our greatness. . .

But once we celebrated —

SAMSUNG

A hundred years ago, America was great, growing, strong, optimistic,  individualistic, self-confident — and we came out by the thousands to celebrate the opening . . .  of a baking soda factory!!
