ADDENDUM — WHO IS THIS GUY?

August 15, 2017

So,  let’s play  “Guess Who?”  concerning the events this week in Virginia.

The Guess Who man fancies himself a poet, and reads his poetry on his YouTube channel.   In 2015, in one video he declares his hatred for Christianity;  in another he reads a poem about   the “white devils,”   manifesting hatred of whites, although he, too, is a white person.

Next, this man writes on his own blog that the profession he admires most is the Provocateur.    He would like to become a provocateur –  for hire, of course.

He is an admirer of the Barack Hussein person, occupying the White House.

This man is also a participant and promoter of the Occupy movements, those foreign-funded mobs which cause riots and try to shut down areas of major cities.

Know who this man is yet?   . . .

The Barack-Hussein person leaves the office of the president after eight years, and moves his headquarters to a neighborhood in Washington DC, close to his former office  —   to keep active.

The nearby city of Charlottesville Virginia declares itself to be “the capital of anti-Trump resistance.”

The man  ( the Guess Who man)  is a supporter of the Barack Hussein person and he in the summer of 2016 he takes on a new persona to achieve his goal of riots and civil war, whatever it takes to bring down America.

In Charlottesville,  2017,  he masquerades as a “right-wing”  white nationalist demonstration organizer.     He is . . .?

His name is Jason Kessler,  the man pegged as the leader of the “protest movement” in Charlottesville,  the ones the foreign-funded Antifa and Black Lives Matter people had to become so violent against.

What does the entertainment-news media tells us about him?    The “right-wing” white nationalist protest movement,” led by Jason Kessler,” is armed and violent and dangerous, and so is everyone who is “right wing”  and every  white person better be ashamed of this movement and say the “right words”  to denounce this movement.

So,  that’s the guy.    An extreme Left-Winger.

_____________________________

While we’re at it,   what do we know about the young man,   James Fields, who drove his car into the crowd of demonstrators?

Who is that guy?

He is a young  psychiatric patient who is on three or four different psychotropic drugs.   You know,  the ones who warn on the drug package inserts that the side effects are “homicide”  and “suicide.”     The drugs that actually cause brain damage. . . .

The police were called to his house because he was beating up his mother.

The police were also called to his house because he had pulled a knife on his mother.

His (liberal)  college teacher said he had a “fascination”  with the Nazis –   without explaining that it was a fascination with Nazi symbols,  the false “glamour”  of the Nazis,  and that he had no idea what the Nazi movement was all about, except for its slogans.

He is truly mentally ill.

That guy.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

ATTORNEYS THEN, ATTORNEYS NOW

June 9, 2017

 

(I’m NOT going to comment on Attorney  J. Comey’s Senate hearing today.   The fact that what you could hear him say is so opposite of what the entertainment-news media is telling you what he said   is up to you to discern.)

Nevertheless.    We do indeed have attorneys.

lawyers

I heard an attorney explain something very interesting a few days ago.   He said that several decades when he was in law school,  they worked very hard to learn what the law says and how to analyze and  present  evidence in a courtroom that referred back to actual law.

He said in today’s law schools law school students work very hard to become skilled at presenting evidence in a way that would speak to the juries’ emotions,  to form their attitudes about their witnesses and clients,  and to refer to prevailing cultural trends.

The difference is absolutely critical to the survival of a stable and civilized society.

BEND AND BOW AND BU-U-U-U-RN!

May 22, 2017

(Ever read the book of Daniel in the Bible?)

Hey!  How about a rousing  two minutes of Gospel music!!!!

 

Well, the song tells you the story,  but in case you didn’t have patience to listen to it,  long ago  three young men were arrested  because they wouldn’t bow down to the culture’s god,    nor would they bend their knee,  so they were thrown into a fiery hot furnace (so hot that the king’s servants who fired it up were themselves killed by the heat) .    Well, the three young men wouldn’t burn either –  they were protected by a Fourth Man sent from the One True God  who kept them from burning,  from even being singed,  from even having the smell of smoke on them!

“They wouldn’t bend, they wouldn’t bow, they wouldn’t burn.”

Courage.   Truth.   Hope in God alone.

In the last post I contrasted the reception of two presidents in their trips to Saudi Arabia.   I noted that one president did bow to the Sunni king.

Barack Obama, Hu Jintao

Oh,  that’s different  Muslim leader . . . .

Obama Bow Copenhagen

Another Muslim leader . . . . fuzzy.   At a Copenhagen meeting of world leaders.

Here we are – bowing to a Saudi Sunni Muslim . .  .

O bowing again

Here’s the one we want:

Obama bow - Copy

Saudi.   Sunni.   Islam.

We have the school registration of this president.   He was raised as a Muslim,  enrolled in a Muslim school,  and learned his religion and how to get along in this world by studying the Koran.      The young boy in Malaysia learned how to respect the Sunni religion and its representatives.    (You bow.)

As an adult he stated  (it’s recorded on video)  thatThe most beautiful sound in the world is the sound of the muezzin calling out to evening prayer,”  (in which prayers to their god are chanted in classical Arabic).

Beautiful to his ears.

In case you’re wondering:\

ObamaIndonesia school regist.jpg circled

Legal Name:  Barry Soetoro

Previous Residence:   Honolulu

Present Residence:  Indonesia

Religion:   Islam

(By the way,  Islam does not allow for apostatizing to non-Muslim religions.)

So,  one man bowed.   But the other man  “bended.”   —

Trump nt bowing

There’s nothing wrong with being a Sunni Muslim  in this world.    And  there’s nothing wrong with being TALL.   It’s much easier for an older man to put a medallion of honor around your neck if you bend down for him –  that’s courtesy of a different kind.

Every once in a while it used to come up in my daughter’s  concert band which traveled abroad:  “What do you do if you are introduced to someone from some royal family?”   (Answer:  You’re an American.   You shake hands, if such royal hand is offered to you.  Otherwise, you stand politely and respectfully.   After the American Revolution was won,  American citizens do NOT bow – or bend – or hopefully  not “burn” !)

Please,  my readers,  don’t let anyone blur the difference between a bow and a  bending down so someone can slip something over your neck.    Use your own intellect.  Make honest distinctions.

“BLESSINGS” OF ANOTHER KIND

April 3, 2017

I don’t often comment on current events.   They often turn out not to be what they seem to be, and only some weeks afterwards does the truth start leaking out, and by then,  the original “story”  is hard to dislodge.

But this one today seems fairly straightforward:

train

An explosion  on a commuter train in St. Petersburg, Russia.   Very sad day.   Many injured,  ten dead (so far).      The newspapers have a photo of the man who carried the shrapnel-filled   (IEDs)  into the train.

Someone wrote:     “A terrorist attack is an attack on all humanity.”       (Well, so is senseless violence of all kinds,  but the point is taken.)

While some grieve,  the  desert warrior crescent moon god gives his blessings, according to others, such as ISIS,  who publicly  rejoice and praise the act, according to recorded statements..

While some in the post-Western Liberal culture will continue to find a moral equivalency between one religion and another,  one culture and another,  the truth is far different:

MY Book YOUR Book

Now,  neither statement that the blonde is saying is quite completely true,  and a statements that leave out so much can be easily used to distort the truth and advance a false narrative,  but there are two completely different starting points here,  two different a prioris,  and two different deities.

Two different “blessings.”

TELLING IT LIKE IT IS

April 2, 2017

(Jesus,  confrontational and blunt,  bearer of bad news. )

“Red sky in morning,  sailors take warning”  —

Sunrise 380

There aren’t too many sunrises in my “circadian rhythm” –   but I caught one recently!    And sure enough, we had about three days of rain following this beautiful sky.

It was Passion Sunday today,  a name for this particular Sunday that’s been recognized for centuries as the one in which we begin the steep,  inevitable slide downward into the days of the Crucifixion.      We carefully reread and then meditate on the events in those last couple of weeks before the death of Christ.   There’s lots there for our minds to confront.

None of His friends knew that some very bad times were coming, though.    In fact,  Jesus thought it weird that mankind can read the signs in the sky,  like red skies in mornings,  but we can’t read the Signs of the Times.  So  His last conversations were particularly blunt and to-the-point.

No time left for a kinder, gentler religion of luv and mercy for everyone, everywhere,  no matter what they’re doing and no matter what they believe in.

The Reading Appointed for Passion  Sunday:

phar n rulers

Speaking to the local rulers and religious leaders of His day,  Jesus told them right out that if they were of God –  if, as they thought they were —  then they would understand His words and believe Him,  but since they reject Him,  they are not of God but of God’s enemy,  the Devil.

You’re, a liar,  they said.      No, you are the liars,  He said.

No backing down from the truth.

We’re sons of Abraham, they said.

pharisee angry

But,  He said,   Abraham  saw My day,  he saw Me come to earth, and he rejoiced to see Me. 

You can’t claim   that Abraham ever saw You!    You’re just nothing but a young, inexperienced nobody.

But —  before Abraham ever was  —     I AM. 

That was the statement that did it.    Jesus is right-out, plainly, clearly, bluntly stating that  He and God,  (who had revealed Himself with the name I AM)   are one and the same.

Take it or leave it.

Believe it or don’t. 

pharisees

They didn’t believe it –  and they didn’t get Him that time.   Yet.   (“They took up stones, therefore, to cast at Him;  but Jesus hid himself and went out of the temple.”)

But some of them  and their children lived to see the destruction of that beautiful, sturdy temple they were in.   It took them unawares.

The Signs of the Times:  Judgment comes  upon all unbelievers.

Pretty blunt.

A LITTLE PAUSE FROM MAD MAGAZINE

February 16, 2017

(Remember “Mad” ?   Well, here’s a little interlude, a little pause,  with one of Mad’s little pictures.)

I’ve been posting some pretty dark information lately, and I’m leading up to a terrible warning for us.  A slap in the face.   Wake up,  people!!!!     But first,  however,  I have a lot of new readers, and I just want to explain what I’m doing here and who I am  —

be-a-watchman-jumpin-in

I’m the one in the water.

And I have some things to say.

God our Creator tells us to be  Watchmen. *    He doesn’t call all of us to be  His  official watchman,   but if we’ve got experience,   if we can  see things happening,  if we can offer some information and wisdom and help,  then that’s how we can be of use to others. **

But sometimes it feels awful because I have awful things to tell you about.   But the real world is like that.   It’s full of danger that we don’t see.

Sure,  the world is full of  knitting and kittens and cooking and football and skiing and traveling around in this beautiful world . . .    I’ll soon  go back to all  those random thoughts floating around in The Spruce Tunnel,  but  meanwhile,  it can’t be all-good until we manfully face what is bad.

Good people push back against evil.

 

______________________________________________

.*   God speaking to His prophet,  Ezekiel:

Ezekiel 3:17-21 –  “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: 18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. 20 Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul.”

 

. **   St. Paul,  explaining his duty:

Acts 20:26, 27   –    “Therefore, I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 27 “For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God.”

 

YOUR FATHER IS A LIAR

February 1, 2017

All I wanted to do was sit down and find out what the news was today.  Over the last couple of days I think I’ll have to admit that I’m not going to get any information from television or radio.

 

lets-talk-about-news

The more I try to find out some facts,  the more I realize the entertainment-news people  don’t know the facts themselves.   They’re reading scripts cranked out by ideologues behind the scenes – people with an agenda to promote.

And to promote their agenda, they must lie.    And they must take orders from those who lie to them . . .  and that goes all the way back to –     what is the source of this lying?

“Truth is the adequation of the intellect with reality.”      I’ve written that before.   What your intellect deals with must be based in actual reality.

Scary.   Because it’s so difficult nowadays.

A small  example:    Where do you find the actual reality in the stories that came out of the shooting at the Islamic Center in Canada a couple days ago?      6 killed,  8 wounded.    (maybe)   Who did it?

“A shooter.”    That was the first report.   He was heard yelling the  Moslem battle cry (“My god is greater!”)      As the hours went on,  he was described as a Lone Wolf who  was also, supposedly,    a right-wing islamophobe.     (Crying:  “My god is greater” ??)      Lone Wolf.   Right Wing.   Hater.      Our Rulers hate “right-wingers.”

And then a half of day or so later there were two shooters.     Not a Lone Wolf.

But the one was a French-Canadian, nevertheless.  

Then, if you followed the story into the next day,   we heard that he was a convert to Islam and got radicalized over the Internet.

Finally, the next day, we heard about the other guy.    A friend of his,  a Moslem.

So not a Lone Wolf right wing hater.

The one shooter had shot indiscriminately into the Center because the Moslems there weren’t radical enough for him.

Only now,  on the third day,  they kept repeating the French-Canadian surname,  no mention of his religion, one way or the other,  and it’s back to being a Lone Wolf because the other guy might not have done any shooting. 

And the authorities are announcing the Lone Wolf shooter is a hater of Islam.  

Did you follow that?  We came full circle.    A loop.   Loop-de-loop.    A loopy story.   Where are the facts?  This wasn’t a major news story, but  even so — where are the facts?       Which of the contradictory facts are the true ones?   Which narrative is the true one?

I wasn’t there.  I can’t fact-check.   I can only witness the development of a narrative that is acceptable to the Leftists who readily use that “right-winger” appellation.

But I long for the truth.

So here’s  that question again.  What is the source of all this  lying?     Well,  God the Creator is what is.    When we stand before Him,  there will be no story-telling,  no making up an acceptable narrative.      What we are we are.  What we’ve done we’ve done.    What we’ve said we’ve said.

What is not of God is the enemy of God,  we can call him  the devil.  Here’s what the Son of God has to say to the liars of His day:    “You are of your father, the devil. . . .Whenever he lies, he speaks according to his own nature  because he is a liar and the father of lies.”

It’s downright devilish to give us so many lies from the entertainment-news media.

STRIKES, DEMONSTRATIONS, AND RIOTS – NOT

January 29, 2017

(I kind of “missed”  Sunday – returned home at noon today and promptly fell asleep for eight hours, waking up not knowing what day or time of day it is . . .   Very unnerving.   Will make up for it soon . . .  I hate missing Sundays.)

bar-fancy-line

Are you hearing what the entertainment-news media is discussing lately?

o-defiance-375

Just a few years ago (2011),   the Barack Hussein person from the White House issued an order to halt the refugee influx from Iraq      (a Muslim nation)  — for six months.

He stopped Muslims from entering the U.S.  until our government could figure out how we can tell which refugees are friendly and who are a risk to us.

Remember all the demonstrations about that?

No?

Remember the taxi drivers in New York City went on strike about that?

No?

Remember all the confusion in the airports?

No?

Remember the angry aggressive pundits on television talking about that?

No?

Remember the   Congress and Senate were defiant about that?

No?

Remember how the various Muslim advocacy groups rose up to proclaim their victimhood about that order?

No?

To repeat:    In 2011 the man sitting in the seat of the presidency of the United States ordered that all immigration from Iraq, a Muslim nation, be halted*    for six months ** until they could talk about adequate vetting.

He’s a darling.

o-no-worries

Smokin’ O !!!!

(The darling of the Extreme Leftists.)

bar-thorns

.*       This order was done in secret by Washington.    It was not discovered until 2013,  in an investigation by ABC news.    This has since been covered up until Breitbart News brought it out in the open recently.

.**        (In 2017, the current  temporary “halt”  on immigration from dangerous countries is less than six months  –  3 months and 4 months in different phases.)

STAR STRUCK

January 26, 2017

I’m not sure if calling them “Star Struck”  is really a nice  kind of “Humor”  but first let me take you down Memory Lane.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA  —

fabian-bl-wh

Oh,  wait, let me do him in color –

fabian-looking

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THIS YOUNG MAN CAN DO TO A  12-YEAR-OLD GIRL’S HEART-STRINGS?

Specifically a 12-year-old girl who is just discovering boys, along with all her girlfriends!!

For a long, long, long, long, long time,  the  Hollywood  teen magazines told us only his first name.

“Fabian.”

fabian face.jpg

Teem-age idol.    Fabian . . . .    We were young, silly, barely teen-aged girls, easily affected,  uh,   physically  by all the photos we could find in the movie star magazines.   Well, the movie star magazines knew how to package a handsome teenage boy like this for our consumption!

They even told us the story about how he was discovered:   Some rock ‘n roll  talent scouts were driving down a street in Philadelphia and saw this young man sitting on his front porch, looking rather glum.    He told the men (who were scouting the neighborhood for the next teenage idol)  that his father had just had a heart attack and he was very, very, very worried about his dad.

How romantic is that!!!!    What young teenage girl could fail to have compassion — and just fall in love with him??!!

Now,  they picked him up off his front porch  (I think that story may be true – hah!)  gave him and his family lots of money, and turned him into the newest teen rock ‘n roll singing star.

fabian-cover

Only problem was,  he couldn’t sing.   He really,  actually couldn’t sing.  I guess we noticed that, after it was pointed out to us, but what did it matter?  WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?      When someone could look like that on an album cover —   it just doesn’t matter to a bunch of star struck teenage girls!

Even the boys in our school couldn’t say anything bad about Fabian.   When you are packaged and presented like that –  even the boys were silenced!

And now,  today . . . .

It’s possible to become star-struck, even when you’re out of your teenage years.

Here’s a question:    Guess who —    One day we had a brand new president and he gave his fist speech to the nation, and this is what was said about him:

Quote    (with soft, awe-stricken voice):

“The mass flickering of cell phone cameras seemed like stars shining back at him.”

Sigh-h-h-h-h-h           Read it again . . . .

Who is this man so wonderful that even the stars in the sky  pay him homage?

It’s  not  Fabian.      We teenage girls finally grew up and admitted, the guy can’t sing!  He was packaged for us  as a teenage idol singer – and we eventually found out he can’t really sing –  and his last name is “Forte.”   Fabian Forte.   Oh.  Okay.

That sentence was spoken,  quoted,  quoted again, written down  by  female “journalists” about   Barry Sotoero —   Yes,  Barry,   the man who was re-packaged as the Barack Hussein person and put into our White House.

Fabian and Barry.

Except we girls finally grew up and acknowledged reality.

 

 

AN ‘EPIPHANY’ ABOUT FAKE NEWS

January 6, 2017

(Sorry about that title.)

Yes, it is Epiphany today.  I’ve just read a document from about 600 years ago reporting that such-and-such a thing occurred on “Epiphany.”

I know that date!     We know that date!     From the first third of the first century,   the event of the Epiphany and The Wise Men  has been known!   And loved and celebrated down through the centuries!

silhouette-wisemen-and-swirly-sky

We don’t know what they saw in the sky,  (probably an actual “star”-looking thing),  and we don’t know when they visited the Newborn King,   and we don’t know exactly where they came from nor how long it took them to get there nor when exactly they arrived . . .   but we do  know that some Wise Men visited the Christ Child, shortly after he was born.

3-kings

We can know for sure that they  presented Him with at least three gifts that they chose to represent His three distinct qualities:  Royalty,  Divinity,  and  His  Unique  Death that would be the Blessing promised to the Ancient Patriarch Abraham.

3-gifts

And yet —   there were no tape recorders,  microphones,  cell phones,  video-recording devices,  no GPS,   no existing itinerary that the visitors from “the East”  had used.    No stenography, human or electronic,  to record the visit of the Wise Men.

The sure thing is the eyewitness accounts,  the importance and care which the early followers of Jesus placed on this event,  the  dawning realization that the event occurred not just out of the goodness of the hearts of these three travelers,   but it occurred in order to prove the prophecies of the Scriptures that say “even the Gentiles” shall come to Him.   And “This Child shall be a Light to enlighten the Gentiles.”

Gentiles!      Living in Darkness for so long.    Pagans, like my ancestors, worshiping and appeasing Thor and Odin.

odin

And now,  I can come to the Manger too –  and the Wise Men are a manifestation of this Truth.

It’s not a false story!

How ironic is it that in this day of electronic recording of EVERYTHING ,  we are deluged with news stories which very often turn out to be false,  told only to affect our  “attitudes”;  and entertainment programs which turn out to be based upon false and harmful human actions,   propagated only to break down our moral barriers.

(And both, of course,  presented to us in order to make money for the Corporate Rulers.)

So eyewitness testimony of the pre-technological age can be more certainly True than the plethora of electronically-recorded information that we have to pick our way through every day.

It’s mentally exhausting!

But we can Rest – in the Truth of Epiphany.

bar-thorns

For my foreign Readers:  

Some recent examples of false news stories you may have heard about:   

The “Hands Up – Don’t Shoot”   slogan — based on something that never happened.  It just sounded like a good way to target white people, especially policemen.      The petty shoplifter never did put his hands up,   several minutes later he was spotted by a policeman,    he had a fight with the policeman sitting in his car and tried to wrestle the gun away from the policeman;    (the gun went off, the bullet was found inside the car);    then he charged the policeman again with intent to harm the officer,  upon which he was shot.   This young man was NOT shot with his hands up.

That New Year’s Eve in Europe was a  “peaceful”  one, without incident from your  migrant invaders.

That Trump supporters are “violent”  and cause violence at political rallies.  Easily proven false when you look at every instance and see who is doing what to whom.

That Moslems in America are hated and sometimes attacked.   (“Tearing off my hijab,”  anyone?  –  Now she is being prosecuted for having told a false tale.)

That America is racist.  (Only on the news stories and in movies and TV programs!)    Come to  everyday  American cities –  you’ll see Blacks and Whites living side by side or working together, side by side, or walking down the street together, discussing their work or the weather or whatever.    This is the “normal” America.   Not often recorded by electronic devices.

That the “Russians”  hacked the recent election and somehow affected the outcome.  (Absolutely no evidence has been presented,  although many times they have restated their claim and called that “evidence.”   And then they get really mad and insulting if you don’t accept their statements as “evidence.”)  The Russians did not.  yet every day,  even up to today,  the news readers start their stories with   “Russian hacking of the election”   – and isn’t it terrible that Donald Trump wants evidence!

That Trump didn’t get the popular vote in the last election.   The falseness of this statement comes from looking at only ONE state.  There are 50 states in our nation;  if you look at 49 of them,  Trump received the larger share of the popular vote, by millions.    Add back in that one state,   and Mrs.   Clinton received more millions of votes.  That one state?     It’s the home of millions of illicit, unidentified  voters . . . .

And just one more, because I’m getting tired again:     There was a shooting today at the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, airport.      Terrible.   Five dead, so far.    Somehow, within minutes, the entertainment-news media in this country were told to give out a name for the shooter:   (a Spanish name).     They were told to make discussion about “a lone wolf” shooter.    “Gun control.”  

And then, the Canadian airlines who was supposed to have carried this man to Florida said that  No one with that name was a passenger on their flight.    In addition,  the way the story was told about getting his gun out of his checked-in luggage at the baggage claim area  was refuted by several passengers who do carry guns on flights – in checked-in luggage.   

And the photo that was released –   many think he doesn’t look like a Mexican.   

So the entertainment-news media is now allowed to add a terrorist element to their story.

So what is true?     Who is this shooter?  Who set him up?  Who put him up to it?   Why?   And how will our Rulers use this incident – against us?

Cui bono?

DEC. 19 – SOME THINGS YOU KNOW

December 19, 2016

December 19th,  you know the Electors voted for  Trump to be our next president.

You know that H.er  R.oyal  C.lintoness received  “the most” popular votes.

You know that if you take away the votes cast for her in just one state,  California,  that Donald Trump received the most popular votes (in the remaining 49 states).

And that’s why this country is not a Democracy,  but a Republic and why we elect our president through the Electoral College system.     (Genius)

Did you know that Russia *  affected the outcome of our election??????

We got proof! –

DEAR “WORLD” from U.S.A.

November 13, 2016

 

YOU KNOW WHAT?    You have to PAY people in America to go out and act angry !!!

hire-me

“Morning and evening shifts” ???

I’m still reading headlines from around the world concerning our   “surprising”  election.   The Russian news service has a headline banner which says:   “American Population  Divided After the Election.”

So,  I just thought I’d say, “Well, no;  not really.”       Only in a world  that the entertainment-news media create does it seem that the American people are at odds with each other.

Guess it sells newspapers to say so.

Depending on which studies you read,   68%  to  75%  of the American people  wanted to change our country away from the extreme Leftist policies of the Barack Hussein person;  wanted to turn away from the Bush-Clinton-Bush- Clinton  dynasty;  and wanted to get rid of  crime and corruption in politics.

And then  most Americans voted to do just that.

Actually many people on the Left, in our Democrat party,  voted for Donald Trump; record numbers left that  party to vote for him.     More ethnic minorities,  more women,  crossed over party lines to vote for him.

We all  wanted someone who has experience in business, and maybe help build  a strong economy for us.  We want to get out of these endless wars and meddling into other countries’  business.  No more foreign destabilization policies.  We want to protect ourselves, as is every country’s right.   We want to get along with other world leaders,  with a leader who is an experienced negotiator.  We want to go back to “equality before the Law,”  and stop protecting criminal  behavior in the name of “diversity.”   If we have a religious faith,  we want it to be safe to practice a religious faith.

So, why would it be unexpected for us to elect Trump as our president?     How did the media miss that?   Well, as we are seeing now in endless and frantic  televised discussions,   “Maybe we ought not to have worked so hard to elect Hillary.”

“Maybe we should start reporting the straight news rather than trying to influence people to accept leftist policies.”

According to Russia Today,  another news banner: “World media is changing their tone about Trump.”

Good.  Let’s be realistic  and work together on very real problems.  Maybe Donald Trump  can lead the way and help us begin to accomplish a few good things.

1. QUICK!! HOW TO BECOME A U.S. CITIZEN!

November 7, 2016
  1.   That   # 1 means we have one full 24-hour period left before we know.

The Spruce Tunnel may go silent for a day or two afterwards.     I feel like I did on the  operating table,  ready to go into the operating room.   Everyone smiling,  alert, attentive.   I was in pain and I needed the operation to save my life.    I remember thinking that in just a few short hours this will all be over with, one way or the other.  The  outcome was out of my hands now.

Turns out I had an incompetent surgeon and ended up with peritonitis which almost took my life.

At least the surgeon was not malicious and out to defeat me.

bar-thorns

Or defraud me.

Once there was a young mixed-race man who was running for office in Illinois:

Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

His real name was Barry,  Barry  Soetoro,  but it was thought that the name  “Barack”  and the name  “Obama”  would appeal better to the  African-hyphen-Americans who lived in South Chicago and would vote for him.      He was already reported to be born in Kenya  —  the real  Africa.

The National  Public Review got in on it too,  a liberal publication we call NPR.

obama-npr-african-story

Part of his bio:

obama-bio

A  visit to the continent of his birth:

obama-continenet-of-his-birth-copy

Oh,  gosh,  I have so many of these . . .  They were so proud of their Junior Senator:

o-trip-clipping-1st-version

Kenya,  Kenya,  Kenya,  in all these articles.   Foreign  born.  Disqualifies him to ever become a president of the United States.

Childhood education in Malaysia,  raised as a Muslim there.

obamaindonesia-school-regist

“Religion:   Islam”

He never did quite learn American culture.     So much he doesn’t know about our history!  Declares several times that we have 57 states in our country.  Not once;  a misspeak.   In several speeches.   He should stick to a teleprompter.

So what does he know about  American citizenship?     “Plenty,”  as it turns out.

The question was posed to him:

“Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens – and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country – are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will Immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?”

If an undocumented illegal alien votes,   will there be trouble?

Nope.  Because …

  “The reason is when you vote, you are a citizen yourself and there is not a situation where the  voting rolls  are somehow  transferred over  and people start investigating et cetera. The sanctity to vote is strictly confidential.”

What does “voting rolls   …   transferred over”  mean?      What is “sanctity to vote”?

Anyway,   when you vote you are a citizen.    How do you think illegal “undocumented ” foreigners will understand his answer?

The lady who asked the question knew just what she meant.  Her understanding of being a citizen is:    “And I call them citizens because they contribute to the country.”    Huh?

They tell us “We are a nation of immigrants.”

NOT TRUE.

We are a nation of legal immigrants.

Lots of foreigners are welcome,  but not all.      We are a nation consisting of legal immigrants.   Citizens and legal immigrants.

Used to be.

Election  2016:       Be specific.   Be accurate.  Be informed.

Just one 24-hour period of time left to the U.S.      Fuzzy thinking can kill off a nation..   Not being specific can be deadly.

Just remember my incompetent surgeon.   He was rather unfocused during my surgery.  See,  he was due in an hour or so to get on a plane and begin his vacation –  in Hawaii!

3. STEAM KETTLE DAYS- Playing With Paper Dolls

November 6, 2016

(This post is for my personal archives so I remember what a near miss we had in 2016.)

If you get your information from television,  what I call the entertainment-news media, they are giving you paperdolls to play with.

paper-dolls

You get a male paperdoll and a female paperdoll.    And the television tells you one of them is bad and the other is good;     and the paperdolls have friends too,  and then you get to fight and argue about the paperdolls.  And then you’re supposed to take a vote and see which one is most popular.

That’s all we need to know.

But  –  NEITHER  of the paperdolls are reality.      I’m going to take it easy in this post.    I’m just going to list some recent headlines . . .  maybe just for one of the “paperdolls.”   (The “good” paperdoll;   not the one they made up bad stories about.)

“Barney Frank Confirms:   There  is no Congressional oversight on the Clinton Cash uranium deal.”   (That’s where we no longer own 20 %  of our own uranium deposits.   The Poor Sick Lady  SOLD  our uranium to RUSSIA   for lots and lots of money.  Oh,  I don’t mean America got the money.)

The New York Times newspaper says that “the Clinton Money Machine is a problem”;  and we can’t find out who all donated $20,000,000  to Mrs. Clinton for the uranium.

“Clinton Corruption  Unprecedented.”       Well, unless we really are a banana republic,  rules by corrupt,  lawless, and greedy leaders.   There’s a precedent.

“New York Times and Washington Post in agreement:   Clinton Cash a Real Scandal”

(I’m leaving out the names)  “…sexy, N-word,  F-bomb laced language ”  supports Hillary Clinton.     Well, according to what’s been revealed,  Hillary regularly uses that kind of language.  Probably doesn’t offend her.

“Obama suggests illegal alien voter fraud WILL BE IGNORED.”     (Oh, wait,   that’s another paperdoll.)   But it’s still OUR election.     ( Can YOU walk into France and demand to vote in their election?    Can you make Germany give you a ballot in their elections?    England?   Switzerland?  Will Italy let you vote in their national elections?)

“Former Congressman says:   Clintons Practiced ORGANIZED  CRIME at the Highest Level of our Government.”

Obamacare Victims Revolt:  “We Don’t Have That Kind of Money.”      (And we know which paperdoll threatens to continue this unaffordable    health control law.)

“Hillary hid  a   $1,00,000,000   gift  from Qatar.”      Oops.   How’d that happen?

(Someone from the Bernie side:  Clintons are trapped in a world of the Elite;  lost grip on the  average American.

Sheeesh!      I’m still reading headlines.  WHY do her supporters have to set trucks on fire and trash the campaign offices of Trump?  And shout obscenities  at Americans?     I was listening to a man on the radio last night who said  he had a nice day off from work and decided to obtain some Trump signs,  place them in his front yard;  went out to his back yard to grill some hamburgers —  checked on his signs.    AND THEY HAD ALREADY BEEN STOLEN!    

Remember  the homeless women they attacked?

People want to vote to put these kind of people  in charge of the rest of us?    They sound like “real winners.”

Still reading various news sources . .  .  (This isn’t what we’re told about our paperdolls.)

Back to paperdolls:   “Hillary told her maid to fax and to print out classified information.”  Well,   I don’t  have a maid.  Maybe they’re given Top Secret Clearance too.

Hmmmm . . .  “People hired for $1,500 to disrupt Trump rallies”   and . . . etc., etc.

Oh,  the man who disrupted the Trump rally in Reno NV?    Listed in Wikileaks with ties to  the Clinton camp.        No surprise there.    Just who yelled “Gun!!”  in a crowded room?    Austyn Crites?

WE’RE BEING PLAYED WITH!

“Chelsea used charity money for her wedding and honeymoon.”   Well, another generation of this.

“FBI reveals its Pay-For-Play corruption investigation.”

H.er R.oyal  C.lintoness receives  many millions in donations from Wall Street,  the biggest banks,  (remember her sudden trip to Switzerland to talk with UBS officials?),  and the big corporations,  including  Big Pharmaceuticals.      The ones who want some president to make  mandatory vaccinations the Law of the Land.    The Law of the New Land, I guess.

A message from a foreign newspaper:  “To America,  on its Eve of Destruction.”

“Hillary’s  Attack Ads”   Unfair and untrue.”     (Oh,  that’s another foreign newspaper.)

They talk about the “trail of dead bodies”   . . . .

“A  vote for Hillary is a vote for islamic terrorism.”     Well, we know the invasion of our country is occurring and Hillary promises to increase this by 550% , as she said –  if she can do the math after what she says in her speeches.

Let’s see,   unstopped immigration from third world countries gives us . . .  drug-resistant TB,  cholera,  blah, blah, blah . . .   and:   The ever increasing  “Polio-Like Flu”  also known as  entero-68,  or something like that,  never before seen in our country but well known to the south of us . .  .     Your child has a little cold,  and then starts losing control over his arms and legs . . .  paralysis sets in . . .   sometimes death.

Oh,  this gets embarrassing.   America can’t even protect itself from the Clinton Corruption and Crime Clan . . .

Paperdolls.      No thinking,  just listing.    I’m putting my paperdolls down now;    there’s so much more,  but it’s making me tired.   Tired and wary of all this.    Next posts will be shorter!

Election  2016:   “Our Near Miss”    

We play with Paperdolls   versus   we learn about   Real People.

 

Repeat:    ELECTION  20126:    OUR NEAR MISS

 

 

 

 

11. STEAM KETLE DAYS – Corruption

October 28, 2016

Corruptis optime pessima.   Pessima!  

Remember that.    If you’ve been adequately educated in line with Western Civilization,  you’ll recognize that statement.

steam-kettle

These are  my “steam kettle days.”     Not that pretty steam kettle.   The anger is just steaming out both my ears.

“Optima”

I ally myself with the eternal God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,  and the Christian Church (as it is traditionally known).   He said:    ” I know the thoughts that I think toward you,   thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.”     (Jeremiah 29:11)    Some of you will hear Readings in your churches on Sunday that tell you that God didn’t make anything that He hates –  He loves all the things He created.    He doesn’t want us to live in evil.

Not “thoughts of evil,”    but to give us hope and a future.   He teaches us thoughts like love,  justice, peace,  kindness,  honesty,  duty,  piety,  responsibility,  hope for a better future,  high moral standards,   modesty and chastity,   health,   dedication,  reliability . . .

These are the optimal,   “best”  qualities that human beings have always esteemed.

Now,   Corruptis optime   —  corruption of the best.    Take all the things we need for a nation which relies upon self-government,  government of the people,  by the people, and for the people —  WE   tell US  the best way to govern OURSELVES —  Americans like to think this is the best way to be governed.

But our Founding Fathers warned us we can govern ourselves only if we are a people of the BEST qualities.

Corrupt those qualities,  corrupt the people in government so that they no longer represent the best qualities — and what do you get?      Pessima.

“Corruption of the best is the worst.”

The WORST thing we can do to ourselves is to ELECT those evil, corrupt politicians who have embedded themselves into our highest offices, and surrounded themselves with a strong shield of bureaucrats who will protect them against all opposition.

 

hrc-face

The Poor Sick Woman has so corrupted the system  that she is almost invincible.     Government bureaucrats and officeholders are so beholden to her that they will protect her.   The entertainment-news media promotes and protects her;  97% of them vote for her and donate lots of money to her.

(97+%  of people who live around Washington DC donate to her and will vote for her.)

The Justice Dept.  is so intimidated by her protectors that their own reputations have been tarnished.      This woman can commit a list of offenses against US laws and statutes,  while in office,  and the Justice Department is unable to bring her to justice.    That’s the corruption of the Justice system.

Foreign  governments,  foreign officials,  and foreign and domestic corporations know just how much to “donate”  to her in order to get access and approval for their needs.

The growing dictatorial world government knows they can count on her – to work for them and to cover up their designs.

Her people, her kind of corrupt political people,  are in most places of authority and influence now.  Only if you are in agreement with her can you receive the freedoms and  benefits that are supposed to be afforded to ALL citizens.    Half the citizens of this country have discovered that they are the kind that are EXCLUDED.

Anyone who is not on board with her power trip, including past good presidents, are deeply maligned.    Character assassination.   Politics of Personal Destruction.    Why do I even mention this point?   Because someone recently told me to my face that it is her political opponents who set out to destroy the character of everyone in her party,  not her party’s practice itself.   And this was spoken as though genuinely believed.    They disregard the origin of that political principle that originated a little more than 20 years ago by that Woman’s party.

And I’m steaming mad because factual evidence to the contrary is ineffective.

We are talking to people who have been politically made deaf.  Their hearing is corrupted.  “Itching ears,”  the Bible says – they’ll hear only what they want to hear.

These are good people.   But:    Corruptis optime pessima.

It’s true every time.

It is honesty and decency,  a commitment to truth and justice and fairness,  all those “best”  qualities that could keep our nation strong – and keep us safe.

Vote to continue this corruption.   Or vote to try to try to try to end  it.

YOUR POLITICAL GROCERY LIST

October 17, 2016

(trumpscary – trumpscary – trumpscary – trumpscary – trumpscary . . .where’d that come from?)

bar-dissolve-er

My grocery lists never look neat and tidy like this:grocery-list

I like to call my grocery lists:  “Living Lists.”  They’re stuck up on the side of my refrigerator,  continuously  added to,  and finally thrust into my  purse on the days that I have errands to do.   Usually I come home from errands without having gone to the grocery store, so I search for that crumpled-up list,  tack it back up on the refrigerator, and then keep adding to it as the week goes on,  until it’s hard to find room for more words.

You  wouldn’t want to have on your list some of the things I’ve put on mine.  And vice versa,  I’m sure.

When I’m short of room,  sometimes not every needed item gets put on the list;  but if I’m planning to make a familiar recipe,   I’m always hoping that seeing   some  of the ingredients written down  will trigger my memory for whatever else will be needed.

Sort of like a Knee-Jerk   reaction –

media-knee-jerk

Or a Word Association game.

Like trump and scary.    When several of my otherwise reasonably intelligent friends began putting those two words together,  I decided to ask why.   Batting my innocent blue-eyes at them, I asked:  “Really?  why?”   “How?”    “Why do you say that?”

Not one could explain why.  Although they’d take a deep breath and  begin a short emotional response,  it usually trailed off into  some different words making just  the same statement.   Not one had an actual reason.  It’s just something they had “heard.”

A while ago while I was still watching some entertainment-news media about politics,  I realized that I was actually being bombarded with a Political Grocery List, which I should bring to the ballot box:    “Everything I Need To Know About Trump.”    – According to  H.er .Royal C.linton-ess.    (HRC)

So I thought I’d write down a little of what I was hearing.  I’m sure someone is hoping I’d play Dog to Pavlov – you know,  every time Dr. Pavlov rang a bell, saliva and stuff was supposed to come out of the dog’s mouth?

Trump’s Grocery Word List:

Trump – Scary   (of course, you know that one.)

Trump – Racist  (remember,  not a shred of evidence is needed)

Trump – Bigot   (just use your emotions,  not your intellect)

Trump – Sexist    (all the politically correct sins)

Trump –  Unfit for office

Trump – Unstable

And the Ever-Popular:

Trump – Dangerous

Any more?   Not really.  Just recycle these  through EVERY story about him.    Attach one or more of these words to his name, each and every time you pronounce his name.

(Wasn’t that Goebbels, the National Socialist under Hitler,    who said “Tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,  and the people will believe it.)   (woof woof)

You don’t have to know your history in order for it to be repeated onto you;  it’s a Leftist tactic that works on the public every time.

When I go to the grocery store,  I deliberately take my list with me.    It’s a little more subtle with the Political Grocery List.      Hmmmm,   just where do these ideas come from?

media-pavlovs-dog

 

Woof woof, America.   

2 1/2 REASONS TO PRAISE THE CLEVELAND POLICE

October 12, 2016

(The day I became a target.)

The streets of Cleveland, with the Clinic about in the middle and my hotel way, way over there on the shore of Lake Erie:

polo-streets-oif-cleveland

 

I woke up this morning to the news story about the Moslem terrorist who flew a plane into a little city out there in Connecticut.    He was a “student pilot”   on a “student visa”  and his instructor was in the plane with him.   He took out three telephone poles and a white SUV with his crash.     The family in the SUV were shaken up but unharmed.

There had been a “scuffle”  inside the cockpit as the plane was going down.    The Muslim “student” was killed;  the badly burned pilot was able to say that the student had done it “deliberately.”    The police reported it that way . . . .

Until this evening.  All that was being reported by the end of the day  is that a plane had crashed into a residential street in Connecticut, and it was a possible suicide.    No description of the “student” pilot.   No reminder that Islamic Extremists were given the order to start doing these kinds of things in America.

So it got me thinking.     We saw in the morning video the short interview with the police officer.   That pilot and that police officer had told the on-the-scene truth in the morning, but we were not allowed to hear it by evening.

bar-dissolve-er

Last week there was another killing by a Muslim extremist in the city of Cleveland.  Hear about that one?   He crashed his car into . . . something and into some people.  I don’t even remember the details anymore,  but the police officers and some witnesses heard him yelling some Arabic phrase and by all  accounts the driver had done this deliberately.

The police were told by officials to CHANGE their reporting,  and do not report the description of the man, nor his motivation,  nor the words he was shouting.   Treat it like a traffic accident.   The POLICE refused!     They explained to reporters the whole thing, including their directives to hide the identity of the driver.

So that’s Reason #1 –  those Cleveland police have integrity!!    They are on the side of the American people!        (I’m telling the tale in very sketchy terms –  really, the news articles I read make it much clearer,  but if you try to look it up, you’ll find several other incidents like this – just in Cleveland in the past few months.)

Well, I’m sure you heard about this on the entertainment-news media?      (sarcasm, there)

bar-dissolve-er

Here’s a personal tale, an eyewitness account –  from me!

pol-cl-clinic

A few years ago I was spending time on my own in the city of Cleveland.  Once again Hubbie was in the famous hospital there,  and it was fairly late at night and time for me to go back to my hotel.      Hungry!      I thought I’d allow myself a pizza, a “treat,”   because though I couldn’t admit it,  the worry about Hubbie’s health was building up in me and I needed a little medicinal pizza.

So here is a dumb, naive, out-of-town woman all alone,  driving around some pretty mean streets by herself, looking for a pizza joint.

Hubbie and I had already had our experience with those streets:

pol-ppl-on-street

One  night before we had to check in to the hospital,  Hubbie needed a milk shake “like the kind they have at McDonald’s.”     Oh, my goodness,  I’d search heaven and earth to get  him a milkshake in those days, so we asked, but the hotel clerk didn’t know where a close and “safe” McDonald’s was — there was one twelve blocks east of us, but  it  sounded like she didn’t recommend it.   We went anyway.

I was driving.   People were walking in the middle of those Cleveland dark, late-night  streets.    Hubbie did not grow up in a city like I had and I kept telling him:  DON’T MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH ANYONE OUT THERE!    But he was fascinated .  .  .  A few of those men kind of started walking towards our car,  one  hand in their pocket,  but I somehow dodged the pedestrians and kept driving.

So I should have known!   I wanted that pizza, somewhere between the Cleveland Clinic and my hotel.

pol-piza

I think it wasn’t this one,  but it looks a lot like it.    Nice parking lot outside,  just a couple other cars.   I went into the pizza place, placed my order with a puzzled looking man behind the counter, and then sat down to wait.   Now, I’m no dummy.    I parked in front of the window and locked my car doors.

As I waited I saw a police cruiser drive by in the parking lot.  Then I saw another.   Hmmmm.   Hope they’re not here because of nearby trouble.   One police car parked opposite my car, kept his headlights pointed at my car – and wouldn’t turn them off.

By the time I got my pizza and walked out to the car, I realized what the policeman was doing.   He was watching my car – and watching me.    He was watching over me!   He was there to make sure I got back out into my car safely.    He nodded as I drove away …  then he followed me around the side of the building where I saw  two men standing in the dark, talking on cell phones.    They weren’t together.  I assume they were each making their own deals.   Once I got onto the main street, the police car disappeared.

Reality set in and I drove back to the hotel a little shakily but with a big thanks in my heart to those Cleveland police who saw a “target”  just asking for trouble.

I made him a target too.   I caused him trouble and put his life in danger that night.

So that’s Reason #2  that I salute those Cleveland police – and policemen everywhere who do their duty when we don’t always realize it.

The next reason I don’t know too much about,  so  I’m only giving  it a “half”  but maybe it should be a whole reason.       Up to date, now, this year –

pol-rnc

I don’t know how the Cleveland police and other officials did it,  but there were a lot of threats to the Republican National Convention,  and  the entertainment-news media were ginning up a lot of hysteria over it,  maybe hoping there’d be something awful to report on.

But there wasn’t.   The police arranged it so that the paid-for professional awful protestors were kept far away from the ordinary people.   They were (literally) spitting mad, shouting obscenities,  shaking fists and political signs – but they were kept from doing harm to anyone by those police.

I truly was surprised that none of the bad predictions had come true.

And that’s the third Reason.

Hats off to those Cleveland police!!!!

ANOTHER OCTOBER 10TH

October 10, 2016

I’m in a reality mode.     Please, this is another post you shouldn’t read.   Just skip over it.

bar-dissolve-er

A glimpse of Reality:

There’s real things happening in the world — and then there’s what you’re being told to believe.   Time to take out the Old Green Broad of False History again:

false-history

(I think I’ll keep her around for a while.   Not all of us want to  be beaten down.)

There is in Syria a nun who is a wonderful worker among the Christians and Yazidis who are left  in Syria,  a place which used to be nearly 100 % Christian, but has through the centuries  been subject to ethnic and religious “cleansing” —  killing,  because they are not Muslim and do not wish to leave Christ.

Her name is Sister Hatune Dogan and she’s been doing her good work for 26 years, according to the article I read.      She was born in Turkey but her family moved to Germany, where she got her education and became a nun, an Orthodox nun.   She has moved back to the Middle East to help the people suffering at the hands of the Islamists.

She also goes back to Germany once in a while and tells them what’s going on,  warning them that the Islamist invaders they are allowing into their country in the name of “refugees” will go very badly for Germany, because what they are doing in the Middle East is what they’re intending to carry on in Germany – and Europe.

But the Europeans don’t listen to her.   She tells them details.   She tells them of  being told by survivors in the Middle East that their babies are dashed against a wall until “there is no more head left” —  and a German woman in her audience told her to Stop!   She didn’t want to hear any such thing.  She “knows”  that this is no less, no more than the German people have done in their past, and so Germans just have to learn how to live with foreigners . . . .

Stop!  I don’t want to hear it!   Don’t tell me the truth!!!!

The Old Broad in the Green Dress tells me I’m just as bad — so . . .   just, I don’t want to hear the Truth.

Sister Hatune Dogan has been living the Truth and working among the Truth and she and many others like her are trying to tell us that some day the Truth is going to arrive at our doorsteps and bash our heads against . . .  the Truth too.

It’s called “Settlement Jihad.”    Arriving at our doorsteps by the hundreds of thousands.   One American presidential candidate promises to continue and to increase the numbers.

Today is October 10th.   On October 10th,  732 A.D.   — the Year of Our Lord —  a history changing battle was fought and won by the Christians in France.    After continued onslaughts by Muslim invaders into Europe, somehow this battle was won, the Muslims withdrew, and Europe was saved from an Islamic takeover.

There are many politically correct false narratives popping up about this battle,  downplaying its significance,  but that is another deceitful intellectual fad —  but the real story is interesting and inspiring.   The actual  Truth will endure.     The Battle of Tours SAVED Europe from Islam,  for many, many centuries.

It’s October 10th again.

Pray for Sister Dogan.   Pray for Europe.    Pray for us.

This is a spiritual battle.

COLUMBUS DAY AND MORE

October 10, 2016

Clarifying the Story:

 

col-3-ships

So,  the national celebration of Columbus Day  (October 12)  is  moved this year to October 10th so that there can be a three-day weekend.

Fewer and fewer know the story of the journeys of Columbus to the New World.  Four or five journeys, I think.    Might be hard to look up the real story of faith and courage and intellectual curiosity that has inspired people for centuries.  You’d have to look it up in older books, before the Global-Socialists got ahold of American education and inserted a false narrative into the story of Columbus.

The Old Broad beats the red, white, and blue –

False history.jpg

You must, now, accept the false narrative that European Whites are bad, bad, bad.   We are told we should be ashamed and embarrassed about our past — and we, today,  must make amends, and apologies — and that isn’t enough –  we must make “reparations”  to people who live hundreds of years ago!

This is an intellectual fad,  but a very destructive one.

Modern “presentations”  of the story of Columbus will not tell you the reason that a new trade route to India and China had to be found.  (The savage Muslim pirates had cut off trade routes to the Middle East and the East.   Tens of thousands of Christians along the Mediterranean coastline were being kidnapped and enslaved or forcibly converted.)

Modern tellings of the story will also  insert tales of   greedy and violent intent and even “genocide” and against the Caribbeans Indians,   who have received a total makeover in modern books,  obscuring the fact that by the 16th century the Caribbean Sea had become home to warring tribes who killed and enslaved and . . .  ate …  each other, and were rapidly dying off from warfare,  diseases,  and human sacrifice.

Stick to Columbus for a moment.     He was not an evil, greedy,  violence-prone leader of a murderous expedition out to conquer unsuspecting, innocent indigenous people!  He was a Catholic gentleman with an interest in sailing uncharted ocean waters because he had a belief that it was possible to sail far enough west to find India, where much of the desired trade goods had come from.

I’ve studied history for many, many decades and have never found any serious writings or teachings that the world was “flat.”   Or that “if you sail too far, you’d fall off the earth”!  That didn’t come about until the so-called “Enlightened”  people began to re-write history with the purpose of making the Medieval World (i.e., the Catholic World)  sound ridiculous.  *         Another deceitful intellectual  fad.

Columbus:   I have his captain’s log.    Not the Starship Enterprise,  but the Santa Maria  Logs:    Contemporary writings,  “as they happened,”  and so I can say:   Don’t let the Old Broad in the green dress in the cartoon beat you down until you submit to her ideology. 

 Be free to look at the whole picture, the good, the interesting, and the bad. 

Here’s a start:      In 1537,  it came to the pope,  Pope Paul III,  that the explorers were finding a “new type of human,”  with a culture very different from Europeans.   So different were they that the question was raised whether or not they were fully human.  They certainly were savage and dangerous.  When the question came to Rome,   Pope Paul issued a decree,  binding on all Catholics, about the matter.  It was called Sublimus Deus.

You can read it today (in English, if you like).   It was one of several similar decrees, but in this particular one you will find  that the Church opposes the enslavement of indigenous peoples and opposes the destruction of their culture.  

“The said Indians and all other people who may later be discovered by Christians, are by no means to be deprived of their liberty or the possession of their property, even though they be outside the faith of Jesus Christ; and that they may and should, freely and legitimately, enjoy their liberty and the possession of their property; nor should they be in any way enslaved; should the contrary happen, it shall be null and have no effect.” —Pope Paul III, “Sublimus Deus”

Later, similar decrees EXCOMMUNICATED any conquistador,  colonist,  governor,  or explorer  that abused and subjugated the “Indians.”      **

Again,  the story of Columbus is an inspiring story of faith and courage and the desire to solve a common problem for  his native Europe.    Children should know the basics of Columbus’s voyages.  Then older children should be told of some of the complexities of the issues raised by finding new societies.

And adults should be able to ponder the lessons that can be learned from exploration and pathfinding  and developing relationships with people who are different from you.

The Truth truly does allow us to be free to think!

HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY!

“COLUMBUS DAY AND MORE”:   Today,  October 10,   is also the Feast Day of St. Francis de Borgia – the saint that sits so heavily on my shoulder.   Among his many achievements was to assist Rome in defining and clarifying what the missionary policy should be towards the indigenous peoples that were being discovered.

His directions were in line with the papal decrees of the time,  and he outlined the method of caring for and instructing native people, as well as practical means for improving their physical conditions.

. *   (Anyone who lived along the seacoast could see that when a ship approaches land,  you will see the tip of its tall sails first, then more of the sails, and then finally the boat.   People in the Middle Ages were not blind.   Nor dumb.    Especially when the works of the Greek scientists and philosophers became known and studied,  it was common knowledge that the earth is a globe — that revolves in the heavens as other planetary bodies do.  Long, long before Galileo came around,  the scientists, working under the auspices of the Church,  were speculating that the earth revolved around the sun.   They didn’t have the mathematics, yet, to explain the motion of heavenly bodies — but neither did Galileo in his time!)

. **   Examine the crewmen on the ships captained by Columbus.   Where did he get his crew from?  What kind of men were they?     (They were no more Catholic in thoughts or actions than were the native peoples they came across in the New World. )

Killing of the indigenous people, enslavement,  destroying their cultures,   all this was ANATHEMA.     You’re OUT of the Church, unless you stop and repent.

Obedience to the decrees of the Church?     The pope and good church officials of the time could no more  “control”  the conquistadors than the pope of today can control some of our very “uncatholic”  and personally immoral supporters of sodomy and abortion that we find in the US Congress.

All a good pope and good church officials can do is define what the church teaches and to propound church teachings.       The choice to obey lies with individuals.
