The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Real Thing?

I'd like to buy the world a Coke and then rob the people blind...their freedom, hope and everything. No one will even mind.

I’d like to buy the world a Coke and then rob the people blind…their freedom, hope and everything. No one will even mind.

Do you remember the ultimate feel-good song of all time…the Coke song?

I’d like to teach the world to sing                                                                                                      In perfect harmony                                                                                                                                 I like to hold it in my arm                                                                                                                   And keep it company                                                                                                                           It’s the real thing…

I think it’s safe to say that things did not go better with Coke…and here’s why;

Atlanta, GA / Washington, D.C.  – Shareholder activists affiliated with the National Center for Public Policy Research today asked Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent and Coke’s board of directors to address growing shareholder concerns that the beverage giant is promoting public policies that are at odds with its stated goals and values.

Translation~ The equity stakeholders (owners) want to know when teach the world became deceive the world, why perfect harmony became orchestrated mayhem, how hold it in my arm became steal it from your children, how keep it company became illegal immigrant invasion…how the real thing turned out to be a Trojan Horse in a bottle, a transformational elixir formulated to kill America and replace it with something unrecognizable. —By the way, this same deadly poison has taken out the majority of executive boards in the Fortune 500, and probably 98% of the Fortune 100. Governments, bankrupt and insolvent, have become their pawns…We have become their serfs and indentured servants…and worse.

I hate to beat a dead Trojan horse, but it all ties perfectly to Matt Bracken’s Tet, Take Two theory teaming the International Socialist (Globalists) with the Islamists in order to take out the Nationalists (You & Me!).

I’m not sure whether or not Donald Trump is the Real Thing, but consider the following quote of his that rang like music to my ears, and the ears of other true blue Americans…

“We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism.

…and then to the looping soundtrack of the Coca-Cola “Real Thing” song, watch this amazing 19-minute footage of the European Mass Suicide.

The world has been bitten by a Globalist Spider. The venom was Political Correctness. Clearly, it has had the desired effect…it has paralyzed most of us.

Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.” ~ John 18:37

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Sovereignty, Those We Love, and the Time for Intervention

    The purest Sovereignty is the Sovereignty of the Creator ~ Elias Alias

A very good friend of mine shared his own family experience with me the other day that created the spark for today’s Tune-up. He had asked his sister who she was going to vote for in the coming presidential election. When she replied, “Probably Clinton.” He said, “What about Benghazi?” To which she replied, “Who is he?” My mind immediately went to the thought of intervention. Before I list the events that beg our sober and fully awakened attention, please consider the following foundational premise:

The hierarchy of sovereignty in our American experience would list in proper order:  

  1. The individual self; and,
  2. The State in which that self lives and to which that self extends a portion of its original sovereignty; and,
  3. The Union of the several States with its delegated and granted powers, duties and disabilities, which function, as we commonly term the infrastructure, as the “Three Branches” of federal government.

The hierarchy which the typical “progressive” statist embraces runs then thusly:  

  1. First sovereignty is the Federal government;
  2. Second sovereignty is that of the State(s) in compact; and
  3. The third sovereignty is the individual human within the geo-boundaries of the States and the National Union. ~ Elias Alias, “The Clue in the Two Letter Word”

Most Americans, I would argue, don’t give a great deal of thought to the significance of the word “or” in the 10th Amendment. But I guarantee you that most of these same Americans would be absolutely horrified to know what is being done to transform our individual sovereignty into the progressive model, what must ultimately happen in order for their plan to succeed, and what we will have lost when the transformation is complete. Unfortunately, many of the people we know and love are about to be caught completely flat-footed, off guard, and completely exposed to the greatest dangers imaginable. Unless we stage an intervention. But how do we alert their senses when the following list of clues have failed to do so;

  • The Federal Reserve losing 9 trillion dollars…
  • Wide systemic Christian persecution and purging…
  • Clinton scandals and election fraud…
  • Republicans and Democrats hiding the 28 pages linking the Saudis to 9/11…
  • Putting illegal aliens & transgenders before American citizens and veterans dying on VA lines…
  • Local government officials abandoning the pledge…
  • Talk of prosecuting climate-change skeptics…
  • Death of free speech on college campuses…
  • Progressive obsession with gun-control…
  • Islamic terror cells in every state of the union…
  • Obama’s refusal to call the enemy by name…
  • European and US governments moving towards Sharia-compliance…
  • European and US borders dissolving…
  • IRS targeting Conservatives…
  • Unprecedented levels of fraud and corruption everywhere…
  • Spiking drug addiction…
  • Civil ignorance…
  • Demonization of the Founders and “White Privilege” conferences…
  • Moving to negative interest rates after 8 years at zero…
  • No autopsy in death of Scalia…
  • Obama threatening Cameron and the UK for considering Brexit…
  • The epidemic of entitlement and selfie-narcissism…

Do I need to go on? Because I could quite easily…

The point is this. If the list above hasn’t been enough to wake up the sleeping soul, nothing short of a major pre-disaster intervention will do the trick. Furthermore, we absolutely must intervene with all the love and energy we can muster…for the simple reason we can’t afford not to. When the music stops, people will either be help, hindrance, or the enemy in life or death situations. The more people we can get into the first boat will greatly increase the chances for survival.

Author Matt Bracken’s “Tet Take Two” distills the global disorder and chaos down to a logical and coherent explanation of how and why this is all happening…tying every bullet point above to the global perpetrators. He further describes what we can all expect “When the Music Stops”.

So imagine your own family and neighborhood in a county where enough good people paying attention, saw the writing on the wall and began to nurture and develop relationships between the public and private sectors of their communities. Imagine the numbers of your neighbors who are active, retired or associate members of military, law enforcement and first responders who swore a lifetime oath to protect and defend our Constitutional way of life from all enemies, foreign and domestic…who have come together with their brothers and sisters in local government agencies to respond to the foreign or domestic orchestrators of chaos. Because that plan exists! It’s called CPT and all it requires is for YOU to step up and become part of the solution.

God Bless America!

Truth from the PC Mosh Pit of Marquette to the Dark Side of Mr. Microsoft

The PC Mosh Pit

The PC Mosh Pit

Once the religious, the hunted and weary                                                          Chasing the promise of freedom and hope                                                             Came to this country to build a new vision                                                                Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope…                                                                ~ Monster

It all begins to make perfect sense when we strike through the surface to the nature of things. To seek understanding the nature of things is to be a miner for the heart of gold…a very, very lonely and dirty profession. And all that glitters is not gold…

The prestigious Marquette (Catholic) University drifted across the lens of the human nature observatory this past week. There were encouraging signs of life from what has devolved into a lifeless and intellect-ridden PC mosh pit. A wonderful piece from an emeritus (retired) philosophy professor (Howard Kainz) on “The Distinctiveness of Christianity”,  and the courageous eye-witness testimony of a suspended political science professor (John McAdams) that may as well be called “Murder at Marquette”.  The retired professor holds truth up to the light as the suspended professor is vanquished for exposing the truth killers.

The unfolding drama exposing the Marquette PC Mosh Pit would be sensational enough on its own merits…or lack thereof. But when you drill down to the nature of it, stand alongside of it, and feel the hollow coldness of it, you begin to see. You begin to understand the very nature of the monster we are dealing with.

I love the way God paints life with us. He sets the stage, writes the script and assembles the cast who all hit their marks with brilliant grace and perfection…while thinking it is they themselves who’ve earned the Oscar. And of course, “audience” is just a term for the cosmic bicycle pump inserted directly into the sphincter of egos that are likely never to see Kansas again. We are all on God’s canvas in this cosmic circus together…

So Professor Kainz sets the stage perfectly for the performance of Professor McAdams by contrasting the source of McAdams’ boldness and strength of courage to defend truth, with the pagan and ideological influences of his detractors…thereby shining the national spotlight on Marquette’s latest achievement:

“Marquette’s ongoing suspension of McAdams has landed it on the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education’s ‘10 Worst Colleges for Free Speech’ list for two consecutive years.”

And the Oscar goes to…God!

Ah, but we’ve only exposed (with the Director’s help) the root (Academia) which happens to be the monster’s tail. Perhaps, if we’re brave enough, it’s time to follow the tail to the monster’s head. Ann Barnhardt, like Professor McAdams, has done an amazing job of exposing the monster in the Church. And now with the help of Oath Keepers and the Corbett Report (the Director’s been busy!), it’s time to get the most fully developed portrait of the Beast ever revealed…in all its thoroughly evil and diabolically corrupt splendor.

Hint ~ Most of us opened our doors to the cute, cuddly and fuzzy little gremlin in 1975. The fact that he was a thief with dark ideological ties to Eugenics and the Nazis was discreetly painted over with the color of money and the most perfect reason of all…he came to possess what we all wanted. And when you have that much money you buy the greatest painter on Earth…the Media. And Voilà! The monster becomes a freckle-faced boy scout who wants to buy the world a coke. I encourage you to pour yourself a cup, sit back and catch a glimpse of the real Bill Gates. And then dust this little 1969 gem off…simply amazing. God is good I tell you!

“Monster” by Steppenwolf

Once the religious, the hunted and weary Chasing the promise of freedom and hope Came to this country to build a new vision Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope

Like good Christians some would burn the witches Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America They came by thousands, to court the wild But she just patiently smiled and bore a child To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken Westward in saddle and wagon it went And till the railroad linked ocean to ocean Many the lives which had come to an end

While we bullied, stole and bought a homeland We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America They came by thousands to court the wild But she just patiently smiled and bore a child To be their spirit and guiding light

The Blue and Grey they stomped it They kicked it just like a dog And when the war was over They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has its share of injustice Kind was the spirit in many a way But its protectors and friends have been sleeping Now it’s a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice And its keepers seemed generous and kind Its leaders were supposed to serve the country But now they won’t pay it no mind Cause the people grew fat and got lazy Now their vote is a meaningless joke They babble about law and order But it’s all just an echo of what they’ve been told

Yeah, there’s a monster on the loose It’s got our heads into the noose And it just sits there watchin’

The cities have turned into jungles And corruption is stranglin’ the land The police force is watching the people And the people just can’t understand We don’t know how to mind our own business ‘Cause the whole world’s got to be just like us Now we are fighting a war over there No matter who’s the winner we can’t pay the cost

‘Cause there’s a monster on the loose It’s got our heads into the noose And it just sits there watchin’

America, where are you now Don’t you care about your sons and daughters Don’t you know we need you now We can’t fight alone against the monster

America, where are you now Don’t you care about your sons and daughters Don’t you know we need you now We can’t fight alone against the monster

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Peas, Pods, Popes, Puppets & the Panama Papers

Archbishop Victor "Heal Me With Your Mouth" Manuel Fernandez

Archbishop Victor “Heal Me With Your Mouth” Manuel Fernandez

What do you honestly…I mean really and truly believe in? There were two unrelated stories this past week; the anticipated DOL Ruling which will place a tighter regulatory noose around the necks of financial advisors already operating in one of the most heavily monitored, regulated and controlled industries on planet earth…and the unanticipated Panama Papers, which exposed the world monitors, regulators and controllers for the very scoundrels and thieves they are. The two stories reveal the horrid relationship that exists between the governed and those who govern them. The Founder’s original consent of the governed has devolved into the complete and total fleecing and abuse of the governed by a malignant tumor that has metastasized into a cancerous cadre of out-of-control diabolical narcissists and psychopaths;

I think we should admit that both the global financial/legal system, and our governments are both systemically corrupt and have been partners in crime – laundering money and evading taxes – as a matter of undeclared policy. It has been and remains just the way the system they profit by, works.  The only people who were not to know is us – The little people of every country, who are told they must pay their taxes, accept cuts because they aren’t paying enough taxes, and obey the laws and respect their betters. ~ Panama Partners in Crime, at Zero Hedge

Their survival now depends 100% on our enslavement. Sound familiar? We’ve been told that 40 million Europeans died as a result of WWll and half of them were civilians. They weren’t killed by WWll…they were killed by the same malignant tumor.

Willie Sutton, when asked why he robbed banks, answered “Because that’s where the money is.” The Panama Papers reveal the global Willie Suttons. What is George Soros, the man behind the leak, if not the biggest global Willie Sutton of them all? At least the Mafia had a code of honor…or used to. The Russel Bufalinos and Frank Sheerans were angels with dirty faces compared to the miscreants who now rule our world. And yes, I do mean Obama…although I’m pretty sure he is merely a puppet.

What in God’s name has happened to the family of man? How can we possibly explain the present-day world to our children and have it make the slightest bit of sense to them? We cannot. They are going to be bruised, and in many cases deeply and psychologically…while we as parents do what exactly? Pretend its somehow normal, business as usual, or just how it is??

Well let’s see…once upon a time, the Man was responsible for the family was he not? And the ultimate father-figure of the Family of Man on earth would be…the Pope! So let’s have a peek at what dear ol’ dad’s been up to this week, shall we? Oh, what’s this…Amoris Laetitia…the “highly anticipated” (I bet it was) paper just put out by Francis, ghost written by pervert Victor “Heal Me With Your Mouth” Manuel Fernandez wherein we (the children) are lectured (remember dad’s lectures?) on how we must all be more “accepting” of the perversion we are literally all being forcibly submerged in! Thank God for Ann’s force of intellect… Barnhardt’s “On Why Neither Presidents Nor Popes Can Give Anyone Permission to Crucify Jesus”

Then of course there’s the CNN-filtered SWILL complete with the Tell Trump America is Already Great Hillary pop-up ad, rendered slightly more palatable for the average sheep diet. They really, really, really think we’re dumb as nails.

But again, I ask you…what did happen to the Family of Man? I hope my friend who I will simply refer to as Margo is reading. Because she lectured me to “be careful” when I first began to question dear old dad. The Truth is that questioning the father is one of the hardest things to do because the relationship with the father is a sacred one…which is exactly why it is the primary target of the most diabolical one. But the God of our fathers did not make us to be sheep when the father who was the shepherd becomes the wolf! So please tell me Margo, how it is not you who needs to be more careful than to allow your faith to be safe-guarded by a Pope who, as it turns out, is just another Pea in the Pod of Global Wolves along with Hillary, Obama and Soros et al…infected by an apocalyptic “virus” we now know as  “Vatican ll”.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Déjà vu of Me & You

Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran & Jimmy Hoffa

Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran & Jimmy Hoffa

but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him. But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. ~ John 8:1-6

In Chapter 28 I wrote of an Atheist’s (Camille Paglia) encounter with Truth. A couple of Catholic friends prayed for her conversion as a result. I responded to them, “When we tug at the root of Truth long enough…”. Truth eventually separates us all into two basic categories of followers; those who will follow wherever it leads them, and those who will only follow it just so far. Usually, the latter’s most unfortunate end-of-the-line comes at the moment they realize that Truth will lead them to the end of themselves. If only they would have stayed on the path for one moment longer…they might have realized that the self they chose for the price of eternity was the greatest illusion of all.

We’ve had over two thousand years to study His teachings through the never-changing filter of human nature time after time after time, and we remain as insanely obstinate and predetermined to forsake our own salvation and resign ourselves to hell as ever before. We have been here before…exactly here…before.

Now before the High Priest Caiaphas. Same thing. Except Caiaphas, and the rest of the Sanhedrin, have been as their entire vocation and purpose in life, praying for the coming of the Messiah. They have been praying to Jesus (unwittingly) for Jesus (unwittingly). And Jesus has heard their prayers, and the prayers of all of the priests for generations past, and is finally, finally now standing in front of them. And remember, He loves them each personally. They look Him up and down and utterly reject Him. “No, no. You’re all wrong. You’re not what we want. We want a big macho-man king to vanquish the Romans and sit on the throne and then make us all rich by association. LOOK AT YOU. YOU’RE ALL WRONG. WE DON’T WANT YOU. Go to hell and good riddance.”  Agony. This is the reality of the Incarnation. ~ Anne Barnhardt, On Being Tortured & Killed By The Person You Love Most In The World

At the temple courts, tested by the teachers and the Pharisees over the adulteress, and in final judgement before Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin, the characters in the Passion Play all jockey for position. From then until now, it has always been the same play. Lots of different players on the stage, but always the same three horses in the race; survival, power and Truth. The adulteress, Caiaphas and Jesus Christ all met in the most fateful moment in human history. In spite of what we know now, we would never have bet on Truth to win at that moment in time (even His disciples were looking to take back their bets before the post), on His knees all bloodied, mocked and scourged.

When I watched the Town Hall video footage of Chris Matthews’ ferocious grilling of Donald Trump on the subject of abortion, it had a remarkable three horse fateful moment déjà vu feel for me! The unborn, Media, and Trumpsurvival, power, and Truth meeting again at the most fateful moment in my lifetime. Now before you reject my argument as completely absurd, please hear me out. Survival, power, and Truth in the temple court and the town hall…let’s break it down beginning with the obvious.

  • Media is all about power, agreed? If Matthews is not Caiaphas, he is surely his agent-representative.
  • Can we agree that the women in both the temple court and the town hall are linked by the issue of sin and survival? Violation of the 7th Commandment and survival of the sinner in the temple court. Violation of the 6th Commandment and survival of the innocent (unborn) in the town hall.
  • Which bring us to the Truth. Jesus Christ was God (Truth) incarnate before the Sanhedrin. Trump was attempting to defend Truth before Matthews in the town hall.

This is our moment in time. It is ALWAYS about seeing, hearing, and feeling the voice of Truth to Power…through the constant lens of human nature. Objectively speaking, who did the Pharisees-Sanhedrin Establishment fear more than Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago? And who does the Globalist-New World Order Establishment fear more than Donald Trump today? Please tell me how the so-called Conservatives calling for Trump’s head for holding the mother accountable during the Matthews Town Hall are any different from the false mother who revealed herself by agreeing with King Solomon’s plan to divide the baby in half. Because I can hear the resounding choir of 53 plus million aborted souls shouting their un-dying support for Trump as clear as the Liberty Bell on a bright sunshiny day!

Supposing you are walking…at night, you know there is a path but it is too dark and obscure for you to see; then the moon struggles through the clouds and you see the path, a clear strip of white, straight across the hill; in a little while all is obscure again, but you have seen the path and you know the way to go. ~ Oswald Chambers

This is the ultimate déjà vu of me and you. The same dark and obscured path to same temple court featuring the same corrupt players. Truth is every bit as bloodied, mocked, and scourged today as it was more than 2,000 years ago. Archbishop Dolan and Pope Francis have more in common with Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran and Jimmie Hoffa, than the shepherds they pretend to be. They hustle for the Mob, the Pharisees of the day…all one and the same. As Trump himself quoted on this very day, “They want to knock out the outsider. They want to keep their little party going.”  I guess the question for me and you remains, the same as it ever was…will we get fooled again?

The Easter Sunday Tune-up ~ I Believe

But I've seen Love conquer the great divide!

But I’ve seen Love conquer the great divide!

I can’t think of a worse nature of personality than cynicism to be perfectly honest. I’m not a huge Camille Paglia fan, but she nails the essence of our cynical dark side by shining a light on people like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens; I regard them as adolescents. I say in the introduction to my last book, “Glittering Images”, that “Sneering at religion is juvenile, symptomatic of a stunted imagination.”  She goes on (as an Atheist mind you), The real problem is a lack of knowledge of religion as well as a lack of respect for religion. I find it completely hypocritical for people in academe or the media to demand understanding of Muslim beliefs and yet be so derisive and dismissive of the devout Christian beliefs of Southern conservatives. I bet that got some of her Salon peeps talking!

And then she turns her guns on one of the most destructive personalities to ever pollute a TV audience; But this sneering thing!  I despise snark.  Snark is a disease that started with David Letterman and jumped to Jon Stewart and has proliferated since. I think it’s horrible for young people!   And this kind of snark atheism–let’s just invent that term right now–is stupid, and people who act like that are stupid…I think Stewart’s show demonstrated the decline and vacuity of contemporary comedy. I cannot stand that smug, snarky, superior tone. I hated the fact that young people were getting their news through that filter of sophomoric snark…It was Jewish comedians who turned stand-up from the old gag-meister shtick of vaudeville into a biting analysis of current social issues, and they really pushed the envelope.  Lenny Bruce used stand-up to produce gasps and silence from the audience. And that’s my standard–a comedy of personal risk.  And by that standard, I’m sorry, but Jon Stewart is not a major figure. He’s certainly a highly successful T.V. personality, but I think he has debased political discourse.  I find nothing incisive in his work.  As for his influence, if he helped produce the hackneyed polarization of moral liberals versus evil conservatives, then he’s partly at fault for the political stalemate in the United States. That’s some brilliantly honest and dead-on writing right there my friends! We’ll make a believer out of her yet! Once you’ve seen the devil…

Cynicism is the most dangerous pollutant of all. You can pollute the world, and people can fix it. But when you’ve polluted enough people, who can fix that? The devil loves a cynic! Why would that be? Because the devil hates God. God and cynicism are irreconcilably antithetical…more light means less darkness by degree. Unfortunately, we have been in a solid more-darkness phase for the past 8 years. Thanks Jon! Hope you’re enjoying your 30 pieces of silver…I mean retirement!

The most interesting observation Paglia makes here, at this very hour, with the death-by-Muslim body count rising rapidly…is the “academe/media” support for Muslim while being “dismissive” (I call it persecution) of Christians. That’s a real noggin-scratcher if one doesn’t stop to think about it. But of course, when one does; the side-by-side image of Jesus Christ loving us into nailing his body to a cross in the worst possible death imaginable…with his muslim warrior/prophet counterpart muhammad lopping heads off the (innocent) infidels…to the enemy of my enemy is my friend in the White House…it all begins to, I’m afraid to say, add up…along with the death toll.

We have all been here before…people from all walks. Mostly good and decent people looking to make their way, caring for their families and enjoying time with friends. What we are experiencing now, they went through as well…a slow and steady strain and drain on the good times from the weight. Almost imperceptibly, trust turns to skepticism, laughter into frowns, joy into fear, and worst of all…faith into cynicism. Just getting by becomes a matter of just getting along and not making waves within the politically correct confines set by the thoroughly corrupt power-brokers of the day…the Pharisees and Scribes of the Sanhedrin. And they had it awfully good…before Love came to town.

I was there when they crucified my Lord I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword I threw the dice when they pierced his side But I’ve seen love conquer the great divide ~ U2

Cynicism is powerful enough to kill faith, but forced to hide when Love is in the room. Snark and Sneering scurry for the shadows like cock roaches when the light comes on. Truth to Power is a tall and shining lighthouse on the greatest ocean imaginable, on the most perfect day imaginable…where the salt air, gull and surf sounds fill every sense with the joy of living! He broke the spell and conquered hearts with words alone. They had to kill Him.

Even those closest to Him fell into doubt and despair after the crucifixion. Think of the moments between the betrayal and His final moments on the Cross. We tend to focus on the people involved; Pilate, Herod, and the Roman Soldiers. But close your eyes and imagine the mood setting of the moment…think of the mocking coming from those most threatened by Him. Can you feel it? It is the exact same tone Camille has unwittingly called out in her piece above. We are here again my friends…

When will they ever learn? If I cannot believe today of all days, perhaps I never will…But I do…I Believe

Why We Call It “Good” Friday

More Nero Than Nero Himself!

More Nero Than Nero Himself!

I usually confine my musings to Sundays, but today this Good Friday of all Good Fridays beckons to me as never before. There is an immediacy and intensity that is hard to describe. As good a job as Spielberg did in Saving Private Ryan of having you feel the experience of being in those D-Day landing craft when the doors opened on Omaha Beach, it could never come close to the actual experience of being there…as a young petrified man barely past puberty. I feel as though we are in the very same moment in history where we must literally give our own lives, in order to truly live again…

Oddly enough, I hadn’t planned to write today. But then I came across this blog post over at

Brandon, You, without a doubt, understand the workings of evil in our world. You even understand its impact on the so called freedom movement. Your article on cultural Marxism was the finest explanation of what America is experiencing that I’ve ever read. It all seems so hopeless……I’m afraid that America is lost and another revolution will be necessary if her citizens are motivated or capable. The more truth I learn the more I realize my whole life has been a series of lies spoon fed to me. I’m 63 and not sure I’m up for a battle. ~ Laurie

The mix of her honesty and fatalism, along with all the other images and sound-bites of the past few days made me realize that absolutely none of this life being “spoon fed” to us is worth living for, but confronting the madness and changing it is absolutely 100% worth dying for! You can read Brandon’s excellent take on the present mess here, along with Laurie’s comment and my response.

This is NOT the life we were meant to live, and living in this way…accepting and denying the evil as if it is something we can get along with, not only condemns our children…it is the absolute worst affront possible to the God who created us! Contrast the selfless courage and sacrifice of a generation on D-Day together with the One on Calvary, to the disgraceful narcissist in the image above. Our cities burn, death tolls rise, and bodies pile up while he dances the night away…

The very savages he covers for daily slaughtered a group of nuns and kidnapped a priest from a nursing home in Yemen where they were caring for the sick and elderly in one of the most dangerous places on earth. It is rumoured that they plan to crucify him today…while we go about our living. This is not living! This is hell on earth, in your face, with the sole purpose of forcing you into submission!

So two months after Trump accurately predicts Brussels, our President Nero decries Ted Cruz’s recommendation to keep closer tabs on the Muslim Community as a “slippery slope, un-American, counter-productive, and not who we are” in the wake of the latest Muslim slaughter-fest…I guess using the IRS to target, intimidate, and silence Christians and Conservatives must have cleared the slippery-slope-meter as being who we should be to his dark slippery-eel-like mind.

My friends, on this Good Friday we have one King and one King alone. Unlike the boys on the beaches of Normandy who came to live, but were prepared to die…He came to die from the start. We must die to become like Him from this day forward; which is to say that the me I was, will suffer to be no longer. From this day forward;

  • I will do for the sake of doing. The duty is mine…the results belong to Him.
  • I will put you before me, and Him before us all.
  • I will do the right thing if it kills me.
  • I will speak Truth to power in ALL places.
  • I will pick up the Cross.
  • I will join

Could there be a better day than this?

Watery eyes of the last sighing seconds                                                                     Blue reflections mute and dim                                                                                      Beckon tearful child of wonder                                                                                           To repentance of the sin

And the blind and lusty lovers                                                                                             Of the great eternal lie                                                                                                           Go on believing nothing                                                                                                   Since something has to die                                                                                                     ~ Jethro Tull, For Michael Collins, Jeffrey & Me
