The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “It hated me before it hated you”

Peter denying Christ

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. ~ John 15:18,19

The amazing thing to my mind about the times we are living in is how the truth and those who love it, seek it, share it, and defend it are so hated…just as “the world” has us all striving to be “liked”. Most Americans cannot relate to those who have lived under absolute tyranny…even though many of us are waking up to how much of our freedom is a lie. Tyranny always begins with bars around the mind to keep certain thoughts out, and others in.

The fact is we are each of us born to connect with God. It’s as inherent in our being as the magnetic north-seeking compass needle. Left to our own devices every single one of us, though we would bob and weave in directions of our own self-interest and the multitude of shiny objects, would invariably come back to center ourselves to true north. Although we can be expert at resisting, avoiding, and dodging the Shepherd we shall not want, we know in our heart of hearts we are straying from what we are ultimately supposed to be. If we are fortunate enough to be in the company of good truth-seeking shepherds, teachers, and mentors, our destiny is assured. Sadly, no…tragically, this is not the reality most Americans are living today. Most Americans are led, manipulated, coerced, encouraged, influenced, pressured, bribed, and bought away from our connection with the God who loves us all beyond human comprehension…by “It”.

Before 2008 I was a generally “liked” person in my rural New York corner of the world. But that was before the cultural poison of “Identity Politics” was injected into the American bloodstream as the opiate of Obama’s promised Fundamental Transformation. Over the course of the next ten years my likeability faded as I gradually shed customers, friends, lovers, and family members who identified and saw themselves as “Progressive”, and me as the enemy of their progress. On November 10th 2016, I was verbally assaulted on my connecting flight home from Atlanta for mentioning the name of our new President in a positive light to the passenger to my left, within earshot of the female passenger seated directly in front of me. Her explosive rage stunned the entire plane of passengers and crew. It was pure raw visceral hate. If she had a gun…

The challenge for the hated is not to hate back. The aim of the hate is to make us disappear. The diabolical effect of Identity Politics causes us to oblige them in order to avoid conflict and being hated, when in fact the God we were born to connect with wants us to love them. Remember the actions of every single Disciple of Jesus after He was arrested. They disappeared. It was only after the Ascension that they each turned to face the hate, engage the hater and counter with love.

I have found, through my own personal experience, a powerful shield and strength of Faith in engaging the hater. It is our fear of losing that gives hate its bite. It was the fear of losing that scattered the Disciples…until they finally realized the “Kingdom” He was referring to all along. It is the basis of His “camel through the eye of a needle” teaching. I see it in so many good and loving friends with so much to lose, who chose the safe middle…unable or unwilling to see the ultimate consequence of their action. Or inaction, more often than not. 2019 is the pivotal year for the entire world. For the love of God, do not experience it as a mere observer from the sidelines. Hate wins only if you and I allow it.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Due Process


All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. ~ Isaiah 53:6

The glue that has held our great Republic together these many years is our Rule of Law. And I would argue that “Due Process” is both benefactor and beneficiary of our Rule of Law. Due Process both provides the appeal of consistency, fairness, and integrity to the whole of society, and benefits as a part of the whole it provides for. One cannot consider “the law” in a society founded on the rock of Judeo-Christian values without hearkening back to its source in the compilation of decrees found in the first five books of the Bible. When the law was transgressed, the covenant was broken, as was the relationship with God.

The sacrificial blood of sheep and goats were the means of restoring the relationship between God and Old Testament man. But, as we Christians know, the blood of the Old Testament sacrifice did not remove our iniquity, it was more like a fresh coat of paint to cover up our transgression still attached to our corporeal and temporal being…think of it as the parasitic alien that attached itself to its first victim in the horror movie Alien. Isaiah foretold of the one who would come as the sacrificial lamb to remove the parasite of all sin from us, to be “laid on him” in our stead.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to (man’s) own way

So, we can observe and contemplate the affairs of men before and after the life and death and life of Jesus Christ. Before Christ, “the law” was bent and shaped by men to control men using the fires of the Temple to their purpose. God became man in Jesus Christ to restore “the law” and expose the Pharisees and build His Church. If you observe the modern-day Pharisees of the Catholic Church and listen carefully to their conversations, you will hear the same pre-Christ plotters plotting their control…in league with the satanic forces behind the New World Order. In the same day, our official “representatives” in Washington have made themselves kings and queens to rule over us, our representatives in the Church discuss the “Due Process” of kicking the same old rusty can down the same old dusty road. We are exactly in the same hour on the same fence of the time before He came the last time…

What is not of God, is of the devil. Every sentient being has/needs religion. Most secularists I know are “Progressive”…they worship Gaia/Earth/Climate and 10-yr-old drag queens. The NY Governor who once invited Traditional/Conservative New Yorkers like myself to leave NY, now vows to “lead the nation with a Progressive agenda.” We are all in the same play. The Secularist “acts” an evolving role, according to their whim as director and producer. We “are” as directed and produced by God.

The first half of Isaiah 53:6 is the extreme consequence of rejecting “the law” for “his own way”, otherwise known as anarchy. The Globalist/Pharisees and our Founders were on the same page in rejecting anarchy as a system of governance because it is by definition social disorder. And then they quickly parted ways as the former applied “their law” by their authority top-down. The latter, on the other hand, applied “the law” by our authority bottom-up (subsidiarity). Unfortunately, as President Trump is revealing to us every single day, the latter has become an illusion BECAUSE we allowed our representatives to become kings and queens…and ourselves to become serfs living off the crumbs from what has become their table…or perhaps more accurately, China’s table.

As long as “the law” remains the illusion replaced by “their law”, due process will remain the illusion replaced by “their process”. Anyone who deludes themselves to believe that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were afforded the same “due process” by “the law” not only delude themselves…they (intentionally or otherwise) relinquish their own right to due process.

“NOW therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise. And do not disdain it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the Lord. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; All those who hate me love death.” ~ Proverbs 8:32-36

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Purge or Perish

The Moment of Truth

Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. ~ Psalm 144

In 1934 the Marxist “Lukács-Weil-Horkheimer Intellectual Braintrust”, forced to flee the rapidly developing Fascist bootheel of Hitler, found a welcoming home at Columbia University in New York City, where it set up shop as the Frankfurt School. From 1936 to 1938, Joseph Stalin murdered as many as 1.2 million political opponents, Trotskyists, kulaks, and various ethnic minorities in order to attain his Communist end, in what became known as the Great Purge, or Great Terror. The Allied Forces defeated Hitler in 1945. Reagan essentially forced the Soviet Communist State into insolvency in 1989. But Reagan, who had up-close-and-personal encounters with the Frankfurt followers and acolytes in his early Hollywood days, was unable to kill the virus that had already found its way into the cultural mainstream of America.

There isn’t a week that goes by without the steady barrage of stories that are beginning to read like the rambling obituary of a once great civilization. This week, we read how Desmond the Ten-year-old drag queen is applauded on the Today Show as “amazing”, while President Trump and the First Lady’s joyful reception by our troops in Iraq is slammed as “disgusting”. In the same week that a legal immigrant cop is murdered by an illegal alien, we have a clerk who  assaults a customer for supporting the “disgusting” President who wants to protect Americans…while another store clerk is savaged for simply referring to a gender-disoriented man as “guy”… while our children are now forced to learn that “all genders can have periods” in sex education classes. These are all classic symptoms of the disease of “Cultural Marxism”.

The last time our Western Civilization faced a threat so devastating as this, was in 1096 when it launched the Great Crusades to save the European Continent from falling to the sword of Islam and the barbaric rule of Sharia Law. Had men failed to be men then, as they are so pathetically failing now, there would have been no Magna Carta…and thus, no United States of America. Is your child or grandchild even able to explain to you how our Constitutional foundation is derived from the Magna Carta?

Cultural Marxism, like Cancer, is not something that you dialogue with. It’s not something you compromise with, appease, or capitulate to. It is something you rip out of the ground by its every last root, kill, wipe out, and destroy…as Reagan might confess from the grave, is something he wished he had done whilst he had the chance. We know MacArthur wanted to.

But alas, the Western Man seems hopelessly stewed in a witch’s brew of effeminacy where inaction is favored over the risk of offending the very beast that needs killing. The Torch of Liberty was passed to our generation because men were willing to pick up the sword in 1096. We can’t find those willing to pick up a pen, put their name to paper, and defend her in our own public square today. How many of us sit in silence, with each voice that might have been the one to turn the tide…for fear of losing, or risking the precious self? What are you prepared to tell your Maker when the day comes? And come it will. Or, do you plan to wait until the sheet is pulled over your head. We are here, and the choice is now…PURGE, or perish!

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Joy to the World

The Greatest Gift of All

“Truth is sprung out of the earth: and justice hath looked down from heaven.” Arouse yourself, O man; for you God has become man. “Awake, sleeper, and arise from among the dead, and Christ will enlighten thee.”  For you, I repeat, God has become man.  If He had not thus been born in time, you would have been dead for all eternity. Never would you have been freed from sinful flesh, if He had not taken upon Himself the likeness of sinful flesh… God’s Gratuitous Gift

I wonder if there is any subject so closely studied and widely misunderstood as Christianity. In a recent conversation with friends, I had one tell me that he is in church while in the woods hunting and fishing, while the other placed his own faith in the “religion” box as the root problem of all our world-wide woes.

Unlike the gods of the other so-called religions, the Christian God became one of us. His entrance was not a high and mighty, thunder-clashing, all powerful show-stealing appearance in a Thor-like figure, but the weakest, most lowly, meek and vulnerable being…a baby, in the absolute most humble setting imaginable…a barnyard manger among farm animals. A setting known only by the Magi guided by the star…and shepherds guided by the angels.

From an early age, he confounded the temple scholars and rabbis with his command of scripture and ancient doctrine. Unlike every one of us, he grew into a man as he had been born, without a trace of sin. His cousin John recognized him for who he was and baptized him in the Jordan. His followers called him Rabbi (teacher). He taught in parables to protect the Word from the enemies of Truth, and counseled his believers as the “children of God” to love their enemies, their neighbors as themselves, and to forgive as they would have others forgive them. There has never been, and never will be, a better example of love in the world than the life he lived among us.

He fulfilled prophecy as the “unblemished” lamb, who exchanged his righteousness for all our past, present and future sins to suffer the wrath of his own Father in the most horrifying death imaginable, so that we will be judged as righteous on our day. Ours’ is only to accept this gift. Who among us, knowing and understanding could possibly refuse it? Our only part, is to love each other as He loves us. We are given eternity in the sinless presence of only love in return. What greater joy could there possibly be? Merry Christmas dear friend…

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ No Regrets

Hell on Earth

“The instabilities we are seeing are a precursor of things to come, and the Parisian cab driver was correct… in order to change an evil, sometimes you have to be willing to risk everything you have.~ Signs of Coming Collapse: Citizens Worldwide Revolt Against Taxation & Illegal Aliens

The image above inspired this week’s SMTU. Just another man in a man-less world literally caught with his pants down in some child-sex-trafficking-pornography scandal…I don’t recall. Honestly, who can keep track of our perversions anymore…sexual, social, church, and state. Its everywhere we turn. Juxtapose the sorry face of regret above with the Parisian cab driver’s quote about risking everything to change evil. The difference? The latter represents the sacrifice of self for good (God), while the former sacrificed good for self.

Years ago, on the path of my own spiritual journey and quest for truth, I studied with a Sufi-Kabbalist healer of sorts who fed the intuitive being my own mother, God rest her soul, had first awakened. While I learned things that strengthened me and healed most all of the emotional wounds I, like so many, suffered in childhood…I now realize the devil’s greatest weapon is his irresistible charm and ability to appear good. Stop and think, who cleans my dentist’s teeth? Who shrinks my shrink and heals my healer? In my Sufi-Kabbalist’s case it was none other than the now infamous Brazilian John of God. My readers already know the name Dawn Eagle Woman. While DEW and others like her may not have sexually abused their followers, they are every bit as guilty of leading the masses away from the God they claim to represent. And, God knows, in the Age of Oprah, these Pied Pipers have done very, very well for themselves. We, on the other hand, are an opiated and alcohol-saturated massive mess of moral misfits flopping about on the deck of the SS Ship of Fools…sailing into the storm of our own creation. Which BEGS the question: If we had the power to create the storm, do we have the power to change our course?

Interestingly, in my humble opinion, it is men being men again that we have to thank for this world-wide-exposure, arrest, and prosecution of pedophiles and sexual predators. As you may recall, Brazil just elected their version of Trump in Bolsonaro. If the fish rots from the head, it makes sense that its revival begins at the head. I am constantly amazed at the amount of time I spend defending the man who is literally saving the world from itself. In the last century, President Reagan, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul ll formed an invincible team to thwart the threat of Communism…in their time. Since then it has only morphed into a much larger and darker corporate-global evil. James Matthew Wilson gives us a fascinating historical perspective on the evolution of the beast here. Unfortunately, Trump is stuck with May and Francis. AND, Reagan had Tip O’neil and Sam Donaldson to work with. Trump is going into 2019 with one of the most un-American House Speakers to ever wield a gavel, and a corps of presidential assassins posing as journalists out to destroy him, and all who support him…US!

Maureen Mullarkey, writer for American Thinker, invoked the powerful memory of On the Waterfront’s Father Corridan in her masterful comparison of an amazing man with his modern shadow in St. Xavier’s Father VerEecke here. This is the juxtaposition in my first paragraph! The story of a man of faith and courage who put his own life on the line to save the lives and the souls of the Irish-Catholic dockworkers in his parish…compared to his modern-day counterpart who betrayed his faith to prey on the lives and souls of those in his parish. Which leads us to the theme of the day…regret. Its hard for me to imagine a more painful word than the word regret. Study the face above and you can read it for yourself. Everyone of us has experienced regret in our lifetimes. Many of us, including myself, have learned from our regrets. But few of us can say we’ve experienced the level of regret in the photo above. If there is hell on earth, it is in this man’s face.

A life lived without regret isn’t really a life lived. But the point I’m making here today is that our fate as Americans is in our own hands. How we live our lives, the actions we take, and the choices we make from this day forward will determine our destiny as a nation. Whether we are to continue as a lost crew on a ship of fools, inmates on a global slave ship, or the nation of free men and women our founders bequeathed us, is totally up to each and everyone of us. I had a very disappointing conversation with a local pro-life Catholic businessman the other day. I knew his father to be a great patriot who stood up for what he believed. His son, on the other hand, did not want to get involved in a key component of planning a public pro-life event. Think of the Parisian cabby’s realization of the need to risk one’s life, compared to this man’s unwillingness to risk the possibility of alienating a customer…to potentially save a life or lives. Imagine this businessman who one day get’s the George Bailey view of lives he didn’t save because he put his own self-interest before the interests of his fellow man and the God he claims to serve. This is on us…from here to eternity. No regrets!

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Angels Among Us

Princess Gloria von Thurn and Taxis

And I will send My Angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanite, and the Amorite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite. ~ Exodus 33:2

Watching world events from the failure of BREXIT to the uprisings in France, spreading across Europe, and our own bitter divide here at home, it’s easy to lose heart and be overcome with fear and despair about our world and the future we are creating for our grandchildren.

I came across this people-search tool on FB and decided to look up an old friend I was very close with in the mid-seventies only to find a very sad trail of drugs and crime and I thought, there but by the grace of God…or Angels, might have gone I. In fact, we were very much the proverbial twin brothers of other mothers. Not that I have led a saintly life in 40 plus years since, as my readers well know…but how did our lives turn out so differently? My worst criminal offense was skinny-dipping back in my rowdier youthful Texas days. I think, in retrospect, it is my life-long itching for Truth, and the angels in my life that has made the difference. It is impossible to follow truth and not find God. It is never the One sought, but the seeker who quits before the meet. And the crazy thing is that most of us quit because we hate ourselves for not measuring up, when He did that for us!

The other amazing thing I’ve discovered on my journey is that not only does God draw nearer to us when we draw ourselves nearer to him (James 4:8), but He/we draw angels into our lives as well…physically present and otherwise.

Being back on Facebook after being away from it for eight years, I see the world of my friends through different eyes…older eyes…changed eyes. I see inside the homes, the lives, and the families of those I’ve known most of my life…their interests, loves, and passions. And while there seems to be a greater appetite for righting political wrongs and rejecting those things antithetical and unacceptable to who we all are…I also see the Global Corporate MSM have recreated the Golden Calf, better than before. Countless souls dancing in the same sand, under a greater spell than ever. But, by the grace of God…

In September of 2015 I went to a mountaintop to pray, and found James 4:8. I have been dragging myself closer across the ebbs and flows, the peaks and valleys, and the joys and miseries ever since. The closer you get, the more you see, hear, taste, touch and feel the things you were meant for…from the beginning. The closer you get, the less you fear and worry over things that no longer have power over you. And suddenly…there she is.


What is the world to me without you in it?                                                                              What is there for me to see without you looking back at me?                                           When all the world is cold and gray,                                                                                          And all the good seems gone away…                                                                               Tomorrow has a certainty…                                                                                                       Hope is my Eternity.                                                                                                                     Love                                                                                                                                                       Me

Just when you think it’s all about power and money, fortune and fame, and you are nothing in the world, there she is…Praying for You.

Just When You Think

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Progressivism is the Vampire’s Renfield

Renfield: From Gopher to Gollum to Servant of the Devil.

The Cross of Jesus Christ was the Cross of God, not of a man at all—not a man doing his level best for God, but “God doing the very best for man.”         ~ Oswald Chambers, The Cross of Christ

On Wednesday morning I opened an email from a friend containing this link to a pedophilia investigator “Tracey”, and then moments later I open this shocking testimony by Mel Gibson on the very same horror in far greater detail than his acting peer Brad Pitt who exposed the same monster a little over a year ago. Gibson explains…

“There is a creative and loving force inside most of us that guides us through life. These people don’t have this. For them it’s the opposite.”

…and yet it all remains so very well hidden to this day. Why is that?

Any of you who have studied the nature of Diabolical Narcissism with Professor Barnhardt * know this is exactly what Mel Gibson has just described. TCT writer David Warren provided yet another clue in his “Outrage” on Friday where he writes, “Without Christ, we are just animals. And though we are angry, it has no effect; except in the sense that revenge breeds revenge. Also, it has no effect, with Him. The pointlessness of rage has been exposed. No wonder that the strategy of the Devil is simply to keep Christ out of sight.”

“No wonder that the strategy of the Devil is simply to keep Christ out of sight.” When I came across this Mel Gibson interview (linked above) in London minutes after discovering a link to even darker horrors, I realized the Vampiric nature of the beast we are up against. Gibson ~ “What do I mean? This isn’t some kind of artistic abstraction. They harvest the blood of children. They eat their flesh. They believe this gives them life force. If the child was suffering in body and psyche before it died, they believe this gives them extra life force.” These monsters are very real and very, very aided, abetted, and enabled by the Devil’s success in managing to “keep Christ out of sight.” How? Observe any Progressive. They have become the Vampire’s Renfield. They ALWAYS have us looking the other way. At this very moment, we are planning a Pro-Life Parade in the Spring. The Renfields are everywhere looking to make certain that the name “Jesus Christ” not be on the lips of those offering the step-off invocation, or the closing prayer. Last Spring a sister church organized a volunteer a volunteer week all over the county. The volunteers were given tee-shirts with an unrecognizable logo and zero reference to Christ, God, Christian, or Church. You are absolutely right about “replacing outrage with Jesus” David, but it needs to be done in the blazing light of day, and in the bright sunny glare of OUR Public Square and everywhere. Lastly, Barnhardt’s videos on “Diabolical Narcissism” * are extremely helpful in understanding the very nature of what needs to be fully exposed to the light of day, as well as, yes, mirrors, and Holy Water…and the eventual wooden stake. And, for the record, our Global Corporate Media Complex, better known as MSM…almost entirely ALL Renfields.

Renfield serves the Master what it seeks. And what it seeks is the soul, and then the precious  blood of the innocents, before and after they are born. Those of you familiar with the “serial killer” Kermit Gosnell, know it wasn’t what should have been an investigative journalist who tracked Gosnell and forced him into the light of Justice…it was a blogger. THANK GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY, we finally have a President and a Sheriff (Barr) who possess the moral courage, fortitude, and purpose to see through and neutralize the Renfields, and to hunt his Master with the same steely determination Ness used to nail Capone. Makes it just a little easier to understand the rabid nature of the MSM hatred for President Donald J. Trump, now doesn’t it?

* To review, a Diabolical Narcissist is a person who has freely chosen, exactly as the fallen angels (satan and the demons) did, to purge themselves of all charity and are thus voluntarily incapable of love or empathy, and whose entire emotional palate is thus limited to anger, hatred, jealousy and fear…Diabolical Narcissists are vampiric and hold special malice for people who are loving, happy, grateful and empathetic – which is why children are often their targets. Diabolical Narcissists identify targets whom they then “hunt”, with the intent of crushing the target such that the target is likewise purged of all charity.  And the wheels of the bus go ’round and ’round. Their sole motivation, like the demons, is pure, unadulterated spite.

I wrote last week that this week would turn out to be a “very eventful week.” So, you tell me. The week before, one of the top leaders in the EU (Macron) lectures President Trump on the evils of Nationalism as a Globalist-funded Caravan assault is unleashed on our southern border. One week later, Paris is in flames and the EU is invaded by a yellow-vested caravan hundreds of thousands strong from within its own citizenry, and spreading across the continent. A swarming sea of Europe’s version of National Tea Party Patriots storming the walls, in the very hour the Godfather of the New World Order is being laid to rest here in the US…where the bulk of the Globalist Deep State traitors were gathered. There are hundreds of images circulating over the internet of the Deep State guests from Clinton to Bush, showing facial expressions shift from somber to panic as they are each surprised by a mysterious insert in their funeral programs…as the golden-haired Van Helsing sits beside them all, smiling the confident smile of knowing…

It is the power of Christ that compels them.
