AGENDA THROUGH A ONE-STICK DRUM

April 12, 2018

What does a one-stick drum sound like?

      “boom    boom  boom   boom   boom   boom . . . .”

(Eventually you get the point.  Oh –   it’s “boom.”)

_____________________________________

About getting your agenda through –   if you pound the public with only one side of the story,   eventually the public “softens”  and accepts that one point of view.

Ever see a drum and bugle corps performance  – in person?

drum corps

It’s an amazing thing.     Dozens of drummers playing a rich complex, musical rhythm that is quite mesmerizing.   It’s an artistic experience that fully engulfs you.

But —   one drum stick?    Imagine –

single drumstick

Bang.        Bang.         Bang.           Boom.    Boom.    Boom.

Not much of a musical experience!

But one single drum beat, repeated,  can have quite an effect on our mental  processes:

drum info.jpg cr

    . . .  boom   . . .   boom . . . boom  . . .    boomity boom . . . boom . . .

. . .boom . . . trump . . . boom . . .  russia . . . boom . . .  collusion . . .  boom . . .  trump . . . boom . . .  russia . . . boom . . .  collusion . . .      According to polls of Democrats,  68% of them think that  “President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia in order to get elected.”

Huh?      Proof,  evidence,  testimony,  paper documents, and the money trail  all show that the Hillary campaign  colluded with the Russians   (to obtain a false document that was presented to the FISA court to get permission to spy on an American citizen who worked on the Trump campaign . . .    Hillary colluded . . .     with a Russian government official and a former British spy who declares his hatred of President Trump  and who obtained that false document and transmitted it to members of the Hillary campaign.

I understand, however, that the drumbeat from the entertainment-news media uses the word  “trump”  and   “russia”  and   “collusion”   like a    boom boom boom   from one drumstick on a drum.

68% of Democrat voters think that it was Trump who colluded.

____________________________________

You can do it with science too.    “Boom out”  or broadcast only one set of facts,   false facts or true facts, as long as they’re one-sided,  one drumstick . . . .

In  spite of many thousands of scientists,  with thousands of studies, that show that the planet’s average temperature is not rising,  it may be cooling slightly,  antarctic ice is not disappearing,  it’s actually growing,   ocean levels are not rising, and the penguins and polar bears are safe,    in spite of all  that,   “Global Climate Change”  problems are still being promoted.

It has to be promoted.    The flow of  hundreds of Billions of US dollars is at stake.

Remember the news article a few months ago that some antarctic expedition returned with the dismaying report that even the Emperor Penguins have disappeared?

penguins

Did you hear that a very large colony of them have been “found”?   They had just moved to another part of Antarctica.    (That’s the “other half”  of the story.)

Ice is melting in Antarctica?     Ice is melting in Antarctica.   Ice is melting in Antarctica.   Ice is melting in Antarctica. . . .

No.    According to a BBC  report  (a Far Leftist source of information)

Some 272 billion tonnes more snow were being dumped on the White Continent annually in the decade 2001-2010 compared with 1801-1810.

This yearly extra is equivalent to twice the water volume found today in the Dead Sea.

And:  10%   more precipitation (snow)   in that same time period.   (Remember,  Ice Ages don’t begin with lower temperatures –  it doesn’t get “icy cold’ in an Ice Age.  What happens is that snow falls are greater,  earlier in the Fall, later in the Spring, and less of it melts from one winter to another.  The ice pack increases in depth;  glacier-type ice forms and grows in depth from one year to another.

(The BBC article is obliged to tell us that the ice is melting down there on one part “really fast” — but they don’t strike with the other drumsticks:  (1)   the part of the ice shelf that is melting is already floating over the water –  that ice melt won’t add to ocean levels,  (2)   underneath those parts of the melting ice shelves are not “automobiles and cow flatulence from evil meat-eaters”;   underneath the ice are many new volcanoes,  91 new ones so far have been discovered.  The water is being warmed in that vicinity by volcanoes.)

_________________________________________

Back to the U.S.        Lots and lots of drum booms for “March of Women who Hate Trump and Wear Pink Hats” and “March for Women’s Rights”  and the march against gun-ownership   where many schools facilitated their students field trip to Washington DC to participate and   boom . . .  boom . . .  boom    lots of celebrities promoted themselves by being interviewed with the marchers . . .

Hardly a sound about the much larger marches and demonstrations such as the February   “March for Life,”   the many  rallies supporting Pres. Trump and his policies,    and this week’s  Students March Against Abortion –   with 365 schools around the country participating.    But I can’t find any information on that yet.

Just . . .   no information.

Maybe this is an exercise in Zen paradoxes:    What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Facebook and Twitter and YouTube take away one hand in our country –  the conservative hand.

“Zen” ideas are nice and sweet,   cute,   but this can get dangerous for the world too.   There are many governments around the world who are questioning the source of the chemical gas attack in Syria.   Some are even questioning whether it happened.

drum jungle

I don’t know.  I don’t have an opinion on that.     There is an extremely LOUD SCREEN of BOOM BOOM BOOM –  President Assad did it to his own people  –   BOOM  BOOM  BOOM    . . .    Assad did it    –   Assad did it   –    Assad did it  . . .

Aren’t those called  WAR DRUMS?

warriors

All our Founding Fathers agreed that in order to hold on to our nation, the voting public   would have to be well-informed and intelligent enough to understand the  issues.   We have to work very hard today to become well-informed.     Too hard.

Some people have an Agenda to insert into our country.    They need to “transform”  the American people.    They need for the American people to acquiesce to their agenda.

They seem to have a very loud single drumstick.

The other half of the story:

In a follow-up to the unexplained death of Deputy Sheriff  Fitzsimons in a couple posts ago –    one of the things he was questioning is why there was permission granted for the Parkland students (and associates)  to assemble in Washington DC before the shooting even happened.

Seems strange.   I still can’t find the .jpeg of that email,  but here is a copy of the words from that email inquiry:

Good morning,

In reference to your inquiry concerning the March For Our Lives Demonstration, here in the District of Columbia on March 24, 2018. MPD received a permit application several months prior to the actual event, and there was several months of planning for this large event.

AGENDA THROUGH CONFUSION

April 10, 2018

Has the entertainment-news media reported this story to you?

Okay,  I wrote some serious things in the last post.  I was observing the similarity between today’s Propaganda – Intimidation – and Elimination of thoughts that are contrary to the Politically Correct ideals of a Fascist/Socialist state –  either under Goebbel’s masterful use of propaganda a couple generations ago or . . .  now.

I just made my statement;  I don’t have to give examples;  but I can;   and they are so abundant that I will.

Here’s a fine healthy young man:

Deputy

He happens to be the same age as one of my “loved ones,”  not too different in physique, actually,  although this guy went too far in “body-sculpting”   and no one I know would display in public  his (or her) own nudity above the waist!)   Anyway,  I could take this personally.

But this is a selfie, I guess, recently posted on his Fa ce bo ok page.      His name is Deputy Sheriff Jason Fitzsimons,  just over forty years old,  healthy, as you can see.   He is a deputy in the county where Parkland schools are located.   He was there on the day of the shooting, part of the investigation —   and he had some questions.

Some politically incorrect questions, including why the shooting was SO QUICKLY exploited by the Democratic Party to promote their anti-gun ownership agenda.  He posted his questions on his Fac eb ook  page.   (screenshot):

Deputy FB

 

Four days after his “selfie” picture was taken Deputy Sheriff Jason Fitzsimons was dead.

Here’s where the Agenda by Confusion comes in:

“He died  suddenly.”

“He committed suicide.”

“He died of unknown causes.”

And that Fa ceb bo ok  page of his has been taken down.

 

I understand the logical fallacy of  post hoc ergo propter hoc,  but, coincidentally,   that same day that I read about Fitzsimons,   I saw a photo of an email that contained the confirmation  of Approval for an application for an anti-gun  march in  Washington DC to take place in mid-March.

The  application and approval were both dated in February, about a month before the tragic event at Parkland.

I see that  people are questioning that too.

 

As with Goebbels,  we don’t get straight answers;  we don ‘t get the facts in  a news story;  we do get he said/she said reporting;   and  we do get conflicting accounts – with no follow-ups.

“We’ll never know the whole story and both sides are ‘equal’ anyway, so we might as well just not get too involved and settle for what we’re told to believe.”

So much easier to control a population that way.

 The National Socialist entertainment-news propaganda method:           entertainment-propaganda entertainmentpropaganda  entertainpropmenta     ganda enterpropa tainment   ganda enterpropatain gandament propaganda – entertainment – entertainment- – propanews – media . . . ganda.

That is:     entertainment with intermittent bits of palatable propaganda.

I very, very, very much wish that everyone would know, at an instant,   just who Joseph Goebbels was.  I wish we’d remember  well   his role as the very cunning and successful  Propaganda Minister of the National Socialist party in Germany,  in the 1930s and 1940s.

But knowing that he was Hitler’s Propaganda Minister is not enough;  knowing what he did in that position and the methods he used to bend and manipulate   German thinking  is far more important.

Because it could happen again, that way.

radio

The last several times I’ve been with groups of friends I noticed that somewhere in the conversation it eventually comes up that “there’s nothing good to watch on TV anymore.” The group agrees and gives examples.   The same complaint is made for movies and music and radio shows, and, of course,  those ever disappointing entertainment-news programs.

Then there’s another common theme:   “It’s all the same.”     Or: “I don’t feel comfortable with any of it.”      The content of all the media seems to be a direct assault on common sense,  on morality,  and  on American values.     Immoral.    Uninformative.    Inaccurate.    Untrue.

movie studio

movie studio

In order to popularize German socialist thinking,  Goebbels got control of all the radio programming,  movie production studios,   newspapers, and publications:

typewriter newspaper copy

typing out news articles

Billboards, posters, pamphlets,  all media seemed to have the same intention — to advance the agenda of the National Socialists.

posters

All countries did it too, to fight the Nazi propaganda machine.   Nnot long after the war laws were passed against propaganda,  but it was too valuable a tool to lay down altogether.   Recently, a decade or so ago,   those laws were removed altogether.

(Really!   It’ss now legal for government agencies to use propaganda in  American media!)   

Propaganda was  used by this, that, or the other interest group,  with subtlety and discretion,  but always with the dangerous potential that this powerful tool could get into the hands of a determined and well-organized enemy with an agenda to Transform America into something that Americans don’t want.

The German people were not Nazis – not until this propaganda machine began to transform them — and accompanied by the  enforcement might of  (in American terms)  the Justice Department,  the rogue FBI contingent,  the rogue Internal Revenue Service,  and many others in that so-called Deep State that seems to be setting policy for us.

They are writing and rewriting television, movie, music, comedy, and advertising content to promote the Blue-Progressive-Anti-Trump message with all the means used by Joseph Goebbels.   It worked for him.

poll

This graph represents the conclusions of several different media studies.     Anywhere from 91%  to 95% of “news”  coverage has been NEGATIVE  for Trump and his policies and his supporters.

There are numerous attempts to criminalize opposition political opinion.    (That’s another whole issue to pursue!)

Again:  it worked for Goebbels and the National Socialist:  propaganda   plus enforcement!

Do we really want to go down that path?

Push back!   Push back!   Push back!

TWO ANTI’s TO AN ANTI TO ALL ANTIs

January 12, 2018

 

A rant, on my part:

(That’s a chicken in his hands.)    (New York City?) *

viagra

About that meeting yesterday in which President Trump was presented with an immigration proposal that everyone knew was the exact  opposite of what he wanted, no compromise on their part.    President Trump was impatient and angry at this obvious slap in the face.   Their  grandstanding.   Delay tactic.    Attempted attrition.

 

Then two anti-Trump people, who were not present at the meeting to hear anything, have reported to two anti-Trump “news” reporters who work for an anti-Trump newspaper their impression of what President Trump said.

 

som 3

Is that third degree hearsay?

Do you remember when the European report came out that the average, general IQ of people living in Somalia is 60?

Som 1

Somalia does not have a tradition of governing by a system of laws.  The only thing that is known in that country is rule by various Warlords.    It’s who you know and how well you can fight and dominate those who are not like you.

Plainly and fairly the President was questioning why a county must accept immigrants from countries that are so far away from Western European and American culture.

som 2

Because some countries are a real mess.    I would not use the words that came out of the mouths of those  anti-Trump people, but  truth is truth about Third World  countries where most of the people are victims.    Reality is reality.

Americans are not racist-  remember when we gave over a billion dollars to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti?   A Billion dollars.      A Billion  dollars to (mostly) Black people.

Oh, it didn’t get to the Haitian people –  nearly all of that money went to Mrs. Bill Clinton and her Clinton Foundation –  where it stayed.   The Haitian president is spitting mad whenever he hears her name.   I’m sure the Haitian people are wondering where their aid is too.

hai 4

Mrs. Bill Clinton has been heard using the “F” bomb frequently in her speaking. Derogatory, demeaning statements about people.    And all kinds of vile language when questioned about her actions,  like where the money for the Black people of Haiti went.

hai 3

Politics of Personal Destruction.    It’s not just a catchy phrase — it’s a policy of demeaning, dominating,  and destroying your political enemies.      Like the Warlords of Somalia.    The media is very helpful.     95% are rabidly anti-Trump.

 

It’s possible that the anti-Trump Sen. Durban  is too young to remember the language used by previous presidents (and certain first ladies).    But it is easy to find such vulgar language in many biographies of these former presidents (such as Kennedy,  Johnson,  Nixon, Clinton, and we  know about the  Barack-Hussein person even without a biography).

 

This woman needs help:

hai 1

She needs economic aid for her country.    Ask:  what is the purpose of a nation’s immigration policy?     Is there a nation?    Does a nation have a right to decide its own fate?  Its own characteristics?    Is this woman ready to add to the health of another nation?

The systems and cultures of some countries are not helpful to Western nations.   It has nothing to do with the color of the skin who live in those  cultures. — and most anti-Trumpers know that.

But they’re on a roll.  The anti-Trump media will repeat their story over and over and over again . . .  until something else distracts them.

If you smear the president with charges of racism,  maybe you can weaken his position so much that he’ll back down and do what you want him to do about immigration.

Maybe some of those anti-Trumpers should visit some  New York City areas:

nwe york city apts

. *   Here’s an open market in an immigrant section of NYC.   I’m sure you know what those goats are going to be used for.

I remember hearing a few years ago a New York City policeman talking – a couple of them in that interview, actually.    They said there are apartment buildings they don’t like to go into because they can hear the bleating of goats and the chickens inside those apartments,  ready for sacrifice,  the smell of blood . . .   and there was nothing they could lawfully do about it.     Voodoo.  Santeria.

Not your average cheerful Methodist social justice warriors in those apartments.

Chain migration.    Whole families and extended families allowed to . . .  invade.

 

(And why does the United Nations think it can mandate that every Western nation must accept large numbers of people from anywhere?   What is their motive?   What does the United Nations have against European and American  nations? )  

 

We’re not talking about Legal Migration,  are we?      The anti-Trumpers seem to be confused on that part.    They’ll switch back and forth as they argue. Makes compromise on their part nearly impossible.

So the entertainment-news media has created some ammunition today.

And I’m ranting back at them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE NINETY-ONE PERCENTER AT THE U.N.

September 21, 2017

(It’s quieter and more peaceful here since The Spruce Tunnel “cut the cable,”  but every now and then something from the leftist media will ooooooze  in.)

 Extreme Leftist Sub-Leaders of the One World Government:

un

The president of the United States recently gave a speech here.    I read it.   It made me feel good and safe and relieved.    At last!   At last, someone is saying it’s okay to be an American and it’s okay, as an American,  to love my country and want to see it thrive.

And it’s okay to feel that way about your country too, if you are a citizen of another country.

If we don’t care about our own native land,  then what good are we for dealing with the larger issues we all  have in common?

62, 000, 000  of us voted for this particular president because he articulated what we had been feeling and what we hope for.   (We cannot know how many supported Mrs.  Bill Clinton,  because so many reports are coming in now of confirmed and evidenced voter fraud that put her in the winning column,  precinct after precinct,  city after city . . . .  Who could ever know how many real votes she got?)

Supporters of these international Extreme Leftists at the United Nations include the entertainment-news media.      Somewhere around 96% of them say they voted for . . .  of course,  the Extreme Leftist Mrs.  Bill Clinton.     Journalists.  Vote.  Left.  

They have been waging an extreme and unrelenting war against their own elected president.

fAke

Surprise!    Independent analysis has shown that  91% of news coverage of our president has been negative.    Surprise!    (not)    That’s 91%.      Some big famous “news”  outlets are in the high 80s percentage of negative (and false) news coverage of the president.

Just facts of  “modern” life.

So, after looking into the speech the American president made at the U.N. on behalf of our country,   I was amazed to hear just about 99%  negative comments on the speech.    There were no words that inspired those comments,  but there was plenty of animosity that inspired those comments.  I shouldn’t have been “amazed” – but I was, at the vitriol and mendacity of the assertions.

The difference between real life and the entertainment-news media has never been greater.

The so called Ninety-One percenter president hit a 100%  home run with many, many Americans.

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

PHOTO”JOURNALISM”

July 6, 2017

The State can give you everything and fix all of society’s problems,  but it must, then,  control all your actions, all your attitudes,  and all your thoughts.

One of the most important ways to exert this control is through the entertainment-news media, by means of well-chosen words and  by visual images.    During my high school studies,  I remember being fascinated with the Soviets’ use of visual censorship.   I’ve always loved taking pictures, and I really love being able to manipulate them  . .  .  umedit them . . .  digitally.    The Soviets were past-masters at the game:

Disappear 1

(I think the guy with the white hair did something he wasn’t supposed to do.   Or perhaps he said something he wasn’t supposed to be thinking.)

Same with the guy in the dark shirt in another pair of photos side by side –  but he’s not in the second one.

Disappear 2

The Soviet Socialists were very good at eliminating unpleasant things.

They can do that here too.  You’ve seen these high school yearbook  photos, I’m sure:

trumo out 1

Now you see it;   now you don’t.   Nothing  “unpleasant”  allowed in the yearbook.   Nothing that doesn’t fit the (liberal)  party line.

Trump out 2

The photos on the left were the ones submitted to that yearbook editor.   The photos on the right were the ones printed in the yearbook.    There were no restrictions published anywhere of what can be on students’ t-shirts.

In high school,  I was the editor of our school newspaper and helped with the yearbook.  Believe me,   these aren’t  “mistakes.”  These are editorial decisions.

But what does it matter.    They’re only American children, right?

American!

Flag don't tread

America!    Land of the . . .

FOURTH SHORTS – 2 The All-Purpose Explanation

July 3, 2017

flag      Another Short Note for the Fourth of July holiday. 

______________________________________________________________

It took me a long time to decide to get rid of cable in this house.   I was keeping it for sentimental reasons.   I was keeping it for Hubbie’s sake.    Hubbie and I got cable just as soon as it came out,  somewhere around 1980, I think.

We were so excited to have a 24/7 news channel.    What a concept!   We were both teachers,  we had studied history and business,  and we both liked to stay current with the news.

And over the decades we watched the “news” media devolve into a cartoon imitation of itself.   Now it tells us fairy tales,   24/7, and plays one tune:

 

Russia.

 

Stuck, I guess.

I don’t need to be sentimental anymore.   Sadly,   I admit Hubbie doesn’t need cable anymore.

And I sure don’t.

 

“DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS”

June 5, 2017

(Note:  The “death by a thousand cuts”  usually means a person suffers insult after insult,  slight after slight,   and people wonder “When is that person going to say “Enough!”  ?)

Here’s a little humor (thanks to my Far Far North cousin):

Coffee gone

Funny, huh?

Well, maybe not if you’re a coffee pot and your life blood had just been drained out of you.     Mugged!!   Little by little!     Anyone can usually survive a mugging or two, as long as it doesn’t continue.

I think I was a girl of thirteen years old  (too young;  too big an imagination!) when I first discovered that the phrase:  “Death by a thousand cuts”  really referred to a horrendous, horrifying method of torture used by the Chinese many hundreds of years ago.     Western explorers who escaped wrote of this in their diaries.

cutting knife

Mug by mug   —    I mean cut by cut . . .  anyone can survive a cut or two, or even one or two hundred;   but  I think it was a several day process before death released the victim.     The victim is tied down tight,  because any sane man would run;  fight back;  maybe come after these torturers with a small army.

But not sing songs to them of peace and love.    Not apologize for our borders –

Katy Person       –  as this Katy-Person did recently.    Apparently her recent words of wisdom after the killings in London were that we should look at our neighbors, hold their hands, and tell them we love them.

Peace.  Love.   And more teddy bears and flowers.  To quote my Dad’s favorite phrase:  “Oh,  for goodness’ sakes!”

Oh for goodness sakes

Our hands are somehow being tied and we are suffering thousands of little cuts – and you know  it’s daily, if you read newspapers from around the world.   Big cuts and little cuts,   it’s still death to the victim.

Someone cried out “Fight terrorism, not Tr um p!”    Maybe the entertainment-news media in the Western World and the “elected” politicians  should temporarily put aside their mission to   Ta ke Do wn Tr um p    and instead focus on the  mission of our enemy,  which is to “take down”  us.    (As they’ve stated so often — especially now during Ramadan when murder and mayhem is encouraged — by imams from many locations.  I know.   I’ve got one of those about 90 miles from here.  I’m not going to put his crazed, hate-filled face in this blog,   but he’s one of many calling for our deaths.)

These two entities,   politicians and media, protect, obscure, and cover up the intents of the radical-islamists.

Apparently, the CNN information outlet has attempted to portray the murderous Muslims in London as an aberration and “most Muslims”  would be outraged at the killings and injuries that “these few” accomplished.  CNN printed out special signs of peace-and-love  for “peaceful Muslims”  to hold up in front of their cameras.

It took them a while to recruit a few Muslim by-standers — what are you going to do?   There weren’t many who would publicly denounce what had just happened. CNN found about eight. . . .

Signs 1

Well,  that didn’t look like a very big “protest.”

So CNN  moved this little group to another location.   (Notice pink pants . . .)

Signs 2

They look rather . . .   stone-faced and uncommitted.     No “outraged”  expressions on their faces.

But CNN had to make it look like there were anti-violence protests all over the city!   The same group of people in yet another location:

Signs 3

Sorry for blurry.   The signs say:  “Turn to Love.”     “Love will win.”   “ISIS will lose.”    Uh-huh;  mmm-hmmmm.       Rah Rah – not.

Nations all over the world are experiencing daily attacks,   big ones, little ones,  big cuts, little cuts.    Death by a thousand cuts –  when will we say  “Enough!”   ??

I guess it’s not when we see our nation threatened,  our culture threatened,  our freedoms threatened.   Maybe when we feel personally threatened.

Because so far altruism and empathy seems to be dormant.

__________________________________________

The victim is tied down tight,  because any sane man would run;  fight back;  maybe come after these torturers with a small army.   

“The victim is tied down,”    immobilized,  mind and body;   misinformed

“any sane man would run,”         if he’s not suicidal

“fight back,”     fight back when threatened with death of ourselves, our cultures,  if we love ourselves and our cultures

“with a small army”   —   it’s war.    They have declared war on us ( in those words)   but we do not declare war on them.

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:\

(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.

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.

TWO PERSPECTIVES

May 4, 2017

I’m into my third week of having no TV.   The system components are broken.  Or else all the HDMI ports are fried again.    Someone is going to come to fix the ports next week, and then I’ll be able to tell what else went wrong.

One gets a different perspective on the world without TV.

Here’s something I saw on my way in to class this evening:

Ducklings cr

Right downtown, in our little city which is the capital city of our state,  in busy traffic,  6:10 p.m.,   someone had gotten out of his car and stopped all traffic to allow this mother and her little ducklings to cross the street.   The streets were full, cars coming from all directions,  and yet no one even beeped their horns.   Lots of smiles and thumbs up to the man who was out there guiding those ducklings across the street.

It reminded me of how many “nice” people I see every time I drive in this area.   There are groups of people on the street,  men and women talking together,  men of different races carrying briefcases and walking together or discussing something on the street corner.   Race, age or sex,  it doesn’t seem to matter.    Rich people poor people;  people are just . . .  working together,  living next to each other.

It’s not like you see on the television entertainment-news.   Not like the Soros-funded staged “protest”  riots, protesting everyday American things.

I think there was an attempt at that this week, though.  On Monday,  our local news announced over and over again that there would be protest meetings and demonstrations on the capital lawn for – I forget what all, but one of them was the legalization of marijuana.

cap

Here’s our capital building,  just one block west of where those ducklings were.   When I heard about the scheduled “protests,”  I thought,  oh, oh,  I have to drive that way right in the middle of all that.    May Day protests – all around the world, the news said!!

Well, as I drove by,  I saw some people.  Maybe about 18, maybe a little more,  standing near those steps.   Didn’t look like much.  Less than a busload of schoolchildren gathering for a tour of the capitol building.

I’ve seen bigger crowds there, of course.  I was part of really big rally once.    That crowd was concerned and alert, but friendly and peaceful.  When one young man waved a poster and shouted out some bad language in imitation of what he’d seen on television,  people around him formed a circle and one man said, “We don’t do things like that here.”   The circle kind of edged toward the side of the capitol lawn and the young man “dispersed” himself and walked away.

Without television programming and “news,”  I forget we’re supposed to be a “divided” nation on the brink of civil war.     That’s not what I see when I look around me, at my neighborhood,  my town,  our little capital city.    It’s not what I see when I drive cross-country through many other little towns and cities.

We have problems, of course, and sometimes local politics get “hot,”  but you win some, you lose some,  and you come back to fight another day.    We don’t destroy our political opponents.

So what’s real life?   Raging cities,  burning, rioting cities?   Or everyday life,  like I see most commonly,  wherever I go?    I wonder about that.

As long as it lasts,   these days are okay.   We can work to solve our problems.

I hope the hyped-up drama we see on television doesn’t produce a new reality.

NOT LAUGHING

February 9, 2017

(A sobering observation.)

Oh,  I still laugh freely in my private life,   among my friends and family.     Lots of enjoyable, funny things  around here.    But I had a glimpse of the world “out there”  today, which  gave me a little wake-up.   Life is a serious matter.

I’ve been staying away from the entertainment-news  media lately.

fake-news

I can  spare myself the aggravation of looking for some  real information on these news programming shows.    Even the sports “news”   has quite a strong agenda leaking through.

The Communists won the Culture War a long time ago.   Communists, socialists,  progressives,  “alinsky-ites,”  leftists – whatever you want to call them.    But it was FUN for us.    We’re not the ones who invented “sex, drugs, and rock n roll,”  but we sure had fun when  rebellion and moral confusion was inserted into our culture and made to seem normal.       The things that corrupt and weaken a society were happily embraced.

com-man-80  If you’re a serious reader, you  might want to read their plans for us,  or at least  a summary of their Book.     Or you might want to explore the Frankfort School of Marxism which laid out their plans for us.*     You’ll find uncertainty and confusion are important   “Planks”  of Marxism.

And it’s all to further their main goal, which is the destruction of the West,  and the destruction of America.       Our heads are spinning because we don’t know right from wrong –  but the Revolution is clear-headed, and they know what they’re doing.

The writers and producers  of our entertainment-news media call themselves The Left and they call anyone who has a different idea  The Right, and they have plenty of words to smear The Right with.    

We probably all woke up today to Google’s latest attempt to change our vocabulary.  “He who controls the vocabulary controls the discussion” – right?

def-of-fascism

Google gives us a new definition of “fascism”   – forgetting that fascism is a leftist phenomena,   a form of socialism,   as in the “National Socialist Party,” also  known as the Nazis.    This is a serious deformation of the English language,  but is part of the campaign to bend our minds towards their ideology.      They want to win!

Well, I knew all that.    Sometimes I just want to “skate” free for a while and not think about these things.     But I was reminded of just how serious all this is when I became identified as the Enemy this evening.

I had a busy, productive day – and I’m still happy about my computer working –  so I went to the library and took out a BBC series on DVDs that I’ve been wanting to see.    I won’t tell you the name  (anymore)   but it’s kind of the British equivalent of our FBI,  fighting domestic  crime and terrorism with all kinds of great technology.   I love that.

them

But in the first episode,   the enemy criminal was:  Me!   Myself and all the friends I know!   And the majority of American citizens.      Something we strongly believe in but the Left vehemently promotes.    We fight with prayer, strong prayer,  both private and quietly in public.

We don’t shout,  but we are shouted at.   We don’t throw things,  but things are thrown at us.     We don’t wave angry fists.  but angry fists are waved in our face.  We don’t threaten,  but we are threatened.     We don’t restrict people from walking on public sidewalks,  but we are restricted.

So guess who is the loony radical dangerous enemy to society?

I took offense, actually.     I took it personally.    Here is a whole popular TV series –  painting good people as evil.

I didn’t watch the rest of that episode, but I turned to the second one.

Same thing; different theme.     The traditional values that built up Western Civilization were treated as though they were some evil  ideological enemy of mankind.

And all the resources of the government are thrown at . . .  the people with traditional values.

In America,  the Leftists are exposing themselves as pretty out of touch with reality,  but they strongly believe what they are saying.  The children in college are being used to threaten and to be destructive and menacing against Conservative citizens.  Leftist judges overreach their authority and are treated as “authoritative.”    Professionals in various unions are gathering up their collective forces to obstruct and to take power.

They are all speaking words of division and disruption and hate.

I’ve studied revolutions formally in my university years –  and beyond.     Everyone gets hurt – even the ones being used by the revolutionaries.

It takes a tipping point to get a violent revolution started.  But it doesn’t take much to create that tipping point.

It always takes people by surprise.

“If only we could have pulled back a little”    and cooled off and began actually discussing issues, solving  mutual  problems,   acknowledging what we have in common.

But – with all that I’ve learned in the decades behind me –  this kind of attitude comes out of the values of Western Civilization —    the very values that we are allowing to be torn down.     (As predicted in 1917 –  “. . . russia will spread her errors . . .”   It’s not “russia” –  it’s the  socialism that overcame Russia.)

Didn’t we have some sort of election here that showed we wanted to return to those values?       One man can’t do it alone.  

We didn’t elect a Savior.

We couldn’t.

  .*     “Basically, the Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief — or even the hope of belief — that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution. Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy…..

“To further the advance of their ‘quiet’ cultural revolution – but giving us no ideas about their plans for the future – the School recommended (among other things):

2.  Continual change to create confusion
3.  The teaching of sex and homosexuality to children
5.  Huge immigration to destroy identity.
7.  Emptying of churches
8.  An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime
9.  Dependency on the state or state benefits
10. Control and dumbing down of media
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family

“One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud’s idea of ‘pansexualism’ – the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women.”

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.

DEJA VU HISTORY – 15th CENTURY –

January 31, 2017

First,  a  little Rant –

“Deja vu all over again” ??   No!  I’m not going to state that culturally -imposed knee-jerk reaction which trivializes the actual (quite rare) phenomena.

“He who is ignorant of history is condemned to repeat it...” ??    No!    We hear that so often that we’re oblivious to its serious meaning.

But humans are always humans and similar events do come up again and we should learn from those who  lived before we do,  because they really lived in this world and gained experience.

It is arrogance, narcissism, and hubris to reject what they have learned;  and it is criminal negligence for government schools to keep a knowledge of history from us and to pass on a version of history that was rewritten by current political ideology.

bar-fancy-line

So.  Now.    I’ll just be matter-of-fact.      Factual.

It was my intention to re-study the 16th century because I know I’ll have to answer many questions about it  during this fateful year of multiple anniversaries, one of which is 1517, the reputed beginning of the “Reformation. ”

(Book recommendation:   “The Unintended Reformation”    by  Brad S. Gregory.)

But I needed to know some background and I got “stuck” in the 15th century –  an amazing and interesting century all over Europe  (anyone familiar with Game of Thrones?),  but unfortunately  a century with familiar circumstances to us in the 21st.

Let’s just do Spain.     After repeated attacks, robberies, knifings,  killings,  banditry,  political assassinations, courtroom disruptions committed by the Moors who were resident in Spain,    it became clear that Spanish citizens, the “indigenous” people of Spain,  were presented with life-and-death danger every day.

The Moors claimed Spain for their worldwide Caliphate and wanted to re-start their war of conquest.   The Moors were the “conquistadores,” so to speak against  the Spanish people.

If this was your home,  you were somewhat safe:

guadamur-castle

But if you had to travel somewhere,  or if your  home was a smaller “suburb” or remote village, or if you were a farmer,   then you faced death or capture and forced slavery and conversion to the Moorish religion.    (We call it Islam today.)

(By the way,  for those of you who have learned the re-written version of history,   the truth is that the Church forbade forced conversions to the Catholic faith.  In writing.   In documents.   All over the world.     And the penalty for those who tried it was excommunication from the Church.  And many were.   The real Church teaches that you don’t force anyone to become Catholic. )

But the Moors did force Christians to convert, according to what is written in their book.

So here is the likeness between that time and ours:     As more and more protective laws were developed in 15th century Spain,   restricting the movement of the Moors,  more and more Moors pretended conversion to the Catholic faith.    It’s in their  book that you can do that if it advances the cause.

images-rejected

I doubt if many 15th century Moors ever understood the images in this painting.   I’m sure many   Moors were repulsed by it,  including some converts.

Many more Christians were killed because of these new “Christians”  being given the same  advantages as the Christian Spanish citizens.

So now in today’s news, I read:   Because the Previous President issued some orders to detain certain people from certain countries and because the Current President has decided enforce those orders,   the entertainment-news media  (in America and in Europe)  are announcing that President Trump is “banning Muslims from entering the United States.”

A falsehood, of course,  but believed by people in those certain countries.    And so, according to some news today,  many Muslims are converting to the Christian faith in order to enter the United States.

Is there anyone in the world who will doubt the sincerity of all these conversions?     All of them?     All?      

Of course not.

Is there anyone who doesn’t know that this was a successful strategy used in the past by other “converts”  and dangerous to the citizens of the target nation?

. . . .

safe-home

My loved ones and I don’t live in a safe home, like this.

And we’re not protected by soldiers looking out for us, like this:

safe-soldiers

But those who have declared themselves to be enemies of the United States are coming . . .

invading-not-migrating

. . .    by the hundreds of thousands.

And some of these have declared their intentions.

islam-willl-dominate-cr

“. . .the WORLD.”

“Freedom can go to hell” ??        Freedom is a Western value.

Deja vu?   Once upon a time there was a mindset to protect Western values:

fight

The Catholic Church has said that every nation has a right to protect itself, its citizens,  its borders and culture.    Every nation has a right to exist.

I hope indeed that this part of history repeats itself.

 

ASKING QUESTIONS — SECOND FOLLOW-UP

October 6, 2015

These “follow-ups”   follow the posting about the Oregon shooter and the associated topic of martyrdom.

So much has been going on around here that I’ve misplaced most of my notes and references,  but a couple things I remember:

That evening after we heard about the Oregon community college shooting,  there were reports and several discussions about the fact that one of the shooter’s social media sites (did he have only one?)  had been entered five times after the shooting.  FIVE TIMES —   That would be after the shooting,  after he had committed suicide.

Who got into his social media site, and what were they doing to it?

Questioning 45

Maybe this is why the reporters had to wait so long for  the identity of the shooter.     Someone was  busy with his identity for a while.

A couple days later I began to hear the entertainment-news media say he was a “troubled” young man;”  a  loner;   disliked organized religion   (see,  not Christianity;  just religion in general).    And —  oh, yes,  a right-wing nut — admired Hitler ( a national socialist, not a conservative) and the IRA (a marxist socialist group,  not a conservative group)  , etc.;    and —   you could have predicted this:   He self-identified as a “conservative republican.”

Oh, yes.

One of those evil white conservative males.   And a Republican.

We even have two photos of him.  Choose your enemy.

mercer-cnn-420x315The cable-news-entertainment channel was caught doctoring his coloring.  They had a point to make, but they made it too obviously this time.

What about other news sources?

On his MySpace,  there are two “friends”  listed.  Two contacts.      One is an unidentified young woman.   The other is Mahmoud Ali Ehsani,  a publicly self-declared and open sympathizer with Islamic Jihadism.

I guess he had a “friend   who shared his hatred of Christianity.

There is more.

But behind it all,  the point to understand  is that whatever the tragedy,   whatever the criminal event that occurs,  this country is being gently nudged into believing right-wing or conservative or Republican or Christian or white male  are all bad signs.    You don’t want to be one of those.

It’s not  that this “troubled young loner”  was actually mentally ill, as his mother described him.    It’s not that once again we have a young man on  SSRI’s,  pharmaceuticals whose side effects are listed as Homicidal Behavior and Suicidal Behavior (on their package inserts),  and Lithium,  a chemical which “enhances”  the effect of the SSRI’s.

It’s the attempted attitude adjustment that is so apparent in the Official Story.   Our attitudes.    If we just hear the surface stories about an incident like this,  we’ll find ourselves “adjusted.”

Nudge, nudge.    Hate the conservatives.    Hate conservative Christianity.   Hate the right-wingers,  not the left-wingers.

As I keep saying,  Ask Questions!

Ask questions!   Form your own opinion!      Or else your “attitude”  will be “adjusted”  for you.
