The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “Centering” in the Eye of the Storm

The best of who we are will simply never let it go.

The best of who we are will simply never let it go.

The instant reflex reaction experienced by most of us when attacked, is to come off our center. This is why most Martial Arts practitioners focus so heavily on centering…why it is central to everything; the breathing, the stance, the block and the blow. The ability to center in the midst of sudden danger and chaos maximizes your power, control, your leverage…and your mind.

Our world has become enraged with itself. I believe, despite what so-called leaders might tell us, we are living in a time of great treachery, deception, destruction and upheaval meant to serve the interests of the wicked and the diabolical, at the expense of the righteous and the innocents. In other words, and in my humble opinion, our entire world is the most dangerous place it has ever been. And the fact of the matter is that most of us live in a place as far removed from center as humanly possible…in the place called distraction, the polar opposite of center. When you stop to think about it, we have made (with the help of technology) distraction one of the most comfortable and appealing places in our lives. I suppose another word for distraction might be escape, which is interesting. To escape from a concentration camp is indisputably a wonderful thing. To escape reality itself brings terrible consequences more often than not.

Relationship is one of the first things to suffer in the worst storms of human nature, unless you are fortunate enough to be in a healthy one. A healthy relationship is like a healthy body attacked by disease. The body’s immune system response is centered to maximize power, control, leverage, and the mental will to thwart the attack. But an unhealthy relationship, say one in which the core values of mutual dignity and respect are weak or nonexistent, will wither and break apart in the storm.

So, understanding that relationship is a term we can apply both individually and collectively, we can recognize some unhealthy tendencies. For example, I’ve noticed a tendency on the part of many of my friends in the Liberty Movement to react to this terrible and often-times depressing storm of human nature by first acknowledging the flaw(s), “I don’t like people”, and then respond by moving to Wyoming and taking themselves off the grid…or in their marriages by replacing their spouse with a television set…or handier still…a smart phone. I think of the lyrics to a song I wrote years before the storm, “If you want her to love you, turn into the light.”  I guess it’s a flight or fight thing as old as the hills, but mama that’s where the (healing) is. So if it is flight, we must part like a dart. If it is fight we must learn to fight smart with heart.

What do most of us do when we walk into an angry room, or when we’re attacked by an angry person? We become angry ourselves, thus escalating the emotion and feeding the storm surge…which is kind of what we see happening now with increasing instances of road rage and cop shootings. I should stop here to point out that while some storms are natural, others are man-made. When you read “cop shootings” just now, you probably thought cops shooting people instead of people shooting cops. In reality the instances of cops getting shot by people are up 44% since 2015. On the other hand, you thought “cops shooting people” because we are in the worst most diabolically orchestrated man-made storm in human history, and numbers don’t lie.

Perhaps it’s time for a different response? Whether the relationship is individual or collective, the question is the same. Where is the dignity? I said to my “off the grid” Liberty friend just the other night, we are the shining city on the hillthere is no place to run from here! Unless of course our relationship, individual or collective, is an unhealthy one. And as I reflected on the genius of Jefferson in Independence Day and the “Causes Which Impel”, the lack of “dignity” is the distilled essence in the very recipe of Jefferson’s “causes which impel us to separate.” Further, I submit that where the individual and collective are concerned, our only response at this moment in time is flight from the former and fight in the latter…once dignity is denied.

The interesting thing about the turbulence and tumultuousness of the storm in its effect on relationship is that it can both reveal the fundamentally unhealthy relationships, as well as sink the healthy relationships that have simply lost their center. Understanding this equips us for flight in the one, and fight in the other…hopefully at the point we’re only taking on water.

I know I’ve mentioned this in previous tune-ups, but I can’t help but think of the Kabbalist healer’s stealth response to the angry room. By cleaving to the energies (love/compassion) on the opposite side of anger and hate within himself, he alters the dynamic of the room. This sounds like an impossible task to most of us, my Irish-temper-self included; but the fact of the matter is that getting to the right emotional energy in the worst situation is a far easier task when we are centered. Think of all the fights, rumbles, and tumbles that might have been avoided and/or more peacefully resolved had we approached the turbulence (we knew was coming) centered.

Finally, wisdom is the fruit of a centered mind. There is a huge difference between consciously fighting to defend the things worth fighting for, versus being goaded into a fight instigated to set us up to react. Wisdom provides conviction for one, and brakes for the other. And if wisdom is the fruit of the centered mind, then prayer is the light switch to a centered heart. A gun is a very effective tool in the hands of a good person. Prayer is the most powerful weapon we possess. Yet how many of us are quick to reach for one and forget where we put the other? I pray for the day when we all find our way back to the center we knew, before that which divides us set us apart. And that day will come, because the best of who we are will simply never let it go.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Take a Breath

"...and it's only a thread."

“…and it’s only a thread.”

“Sir Gerald Moore: I was at dinner last evening, and halfway through the pudding, this four-year-old child came alone, dragging a little toy cart. And on the cart was a fresh turd. Her own, I suppose. The parents just shook their heads and smiled. I’ve made a big investment in you, Peter. Time and money, and it’s not working. Now, I could just shake my head and smile. But in my house, when a turd appears, we throw it out. We dispose of it. We flush it away. We don’t put it on the table and call it caviar.” ~ Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities

Some years ago an American novelist by the name of Tom Wolfe wrote The Bonfire of the Vanities. I believe it was one of the most culturally prophetic books ever written, foretelling the perfect storm mix of career politicians, social justice warriors, disenfranchised citizens, race-baiting charlatan-opportunists and a thoroughly corrupt judicial system long before we got here.

Last week a local restaurant made world news for allegedly throwing a 25-year-patron out for wearing a Donald Trump hat. Within hours the same forces gather…the community organizer swoops in to stake out the “victim” turf, get the perfect teary-eyed photo, run the faux story from the faux journalist, and gin up the crowd to just the right pitch of anger, hatred and contempt. The truth of what actually happened in the restaurant no longer matters. The intended storm surge does, pitting neighbor against neighbor, shattering life-long friendships, and dividing families who thought themselves inseparable right down the middle.

Something has happened to me this week…in the eye of the storm. Watching the FBI Director reconfigure an existing law designed specifically to keep us safe in order to protect the email self-serving career politician; and then listening to the President say “It is very hard to untangle the motives of the Dallas shooter”…the same shooter who said he “wanted to kill white people and cops”, who was a follower of terrorist groups like the Nation of Islam, Black Liberation Theology and Black Lives Matter; on top of the monsoon at the Cancun; something dawned on me. WHAT THE HELL AM I FIGHTING FOR ANYMORE? I feel like the surfer in the belly of the Great White thinking maybe if I just punch him square on the nose.

Startup NY ~ We’ve spent “at least $53 million and as much as $86 million” since the program started in 2013…to create 408 jobs!

Maybe, just maybe, when a society has reached the critical mass stage where they don’t care to know where the $86 million went, or why they are jailed for “blunts” while their public servants sell them out from lofty thrones of opulence miles above the law, while being conned into seeing their friends as enemies and their enemies as friends…

Maybe, just maybe it’s time to take a breath in the moment of calm here in the eye of the storm to inventory and assess the things that matter most. Maybe there’s time to save our own homes, if they haven’t already been swept away.

“Your self…is other people, all the people you’re tied to, and it’s only a thread.” ~ Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities!

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Independence Day and “The Causes Which Impel”

The Silver Moon Knows...

The Silver Moon Knows…

The silver moon knows, when the sun goes away, tomorrow she will shine on Independence Day.

Attachment is dependence…on people, places and things. Every single one of us is dependent on the somebodies we love, the some places we live, and somethings we’ve all come to need. BUT…When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation…

Jefferson goes on beautifully to connect the “self-evident truths” of our “inalienable rights” to the “pursuit of Happiness” from our Heavenly authority to the primary purpose of the earthly one as authorized and empowered by we the people. The most amazing ingredient to me in Jefferson’s insightful acknowledgment of the proper relationship between man and both authorities, is dignity. Dignity is the oxygen in relationship. There simply is no relationship without dignity. There is only separation or bondage…as the late Elie Wiesel knew first hand.

When alas, we find ourselves in relationship of any sort, whether it be with employer, governor, or spouse, wherein we are required to accept or deny an objective reality to benefit the one at the expense of the other, we are impelled by the death of dignity to separate. Even though it should literally break our hearts to do so. There is no paycheck so enriching, law so well enacted, or love so loving that should or could compel any self-respecting soul to ever do otherwise.

In fact, to right the wrong thinking of the person who is acting otherwise in any of these relationships is the most loving and often courageous undertaking we can assume. These are the darkest times I have ever known because we have allowed the worst of man’s character into the highest positions of earthly authority…and every well is poisoned. And still the silver moon knows what the silver moon knows…that the difference between the liberation in a man’s heart and a liberation by decree is the dignity we all deserve.

I wish you peace in your pursuit of happiness in this world. And I leave you with this song I wrote on this exact day in 2009, which came to me as I was putting out my flag.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPJ-aX3-2aY

The person who made the video had NO idea who “my cousin Rocky” was. Yet his name appears on the Viet Nam Memorial Wall in this clip (James R Dean Jr.). He was a chopper pilot shot down NY Eve 1969…58,000 names on the wall…4 million images on the internet…she miraculously picked the images with his name (coming from lower left at 1:29 mark)…

Happy Independence Day!

The Upshot of Chaos & Confusion

Sea Change

Sea Change

It is impossible to overstate the enormity of what just happened. But it is very possible to cover up, distort, and spin the reality of what just happened…over there. Brexit was the inevitable vindication and affirmation of the remarkable foresight in the former British Prime Minister rightly known as the Iron Lady… “We have not successfully rolled back the frontiers of the state in Britain, only to see them re-imposed at a European level with a European super-state exercising a new dominance from Brussels”…who called the new European folly of “subsidy and protection” years before its tragic birth, “The trouble with Socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”

This is all so grotesquely and brutally ugly and gloriously beautiful at the same time. It is grotesque, brutal and ugly because Brexit forces a reset and sea change that is going to swamp every last one of us, whether we’re prepared for it or not. It’s glorious and beautiful because the lie and the liars are finally exposed. There is only one path from here. Embrace the truth and the truthful, trust in God…and hold on for dear life!

The Sunday Tune-up ~ Entire Physical World a Symptom of the Supernatural War

"Angel in the Whirlwind"

“Angel in the Whirlwind”

Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase…Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.       ~ St. Francis of Assisi  

Our physical world is nothing more than the outward manifestation of the supernatural condition. Supernatural peace manifests outwardly as a time of grace and consecration as a result of man in relationship with God. Supernatural war manifests outwardly as a time of chaos and upheaval as the direct result and consequence of man in rebellion against God. I’ve provided a partial list at the end as empirical evidence of the latter…

Imagine playing checkers with someone playing chess. This is how I would best describe our sorry state of affairs at the present moment in time. The prophecy of St. Francis is playing out before our very eyes and we are playing the most diabolical chess master of all time using the physical checkers we’ve been conditioned to accept, instead of supernatural castles, bishops, rooks, and queens that we were born with. So while we delude ourselves into thinking we can win by jumping this man and that, or by making one more king, the Devil is one move away from checkmating the only king that’s ever mattered. That my friends, is exactly how Political Correctness works! Establish the false moral narrative of equality to restrict those you mean to control to the paradigm of a checker board, where all pieces are equal and movement is limited to one direction, while the great and powerful equality salesman Oz (you know who) is free to move left, right, vertically and horizontally. There is only one mind in the universe diabolical enough to pull that off…

In other words, we are suffering the most tragically fatal form of dementia there could possibly be. It’s one thing to suffer dementia within the peaceful confines of a nursing home. It’s quite another to find yourself mentally and physically naked on the most dangerous battlefield of all. That is exactly what Political Correctness has done to the checker pieces living on the chess board of the European Continent…who, it seems, have finally had their “Brexit” awakening. And it is exactly the same stupefied spell we Americans have been living under as well.

Please allow me to share three separate stories of three separate people in my circle, under the PC spell in just the past three weeks…

The Christian ~ A wonderful and real believing Christian in a real believing church with a passion to help the poor, retired from the NYPD.

Active Duty Law Enforcement Officer ~ A self-professed Conservative “rising star” in the ranks of the Orange County law enforcement community.

Gay Liberal Therapist ~ A truly good fun-loving professional woman with a very generous heart.

A pretty good cross-section of America in three lives, no? So let me share my experience with them in the context of my role as the co-leader of the Orange County Oath Keepers, and the Orlando nightclub massacre. Oath keepers as my regular readers are well aware, is a national organization of active and retired military, law enforcement, and first-responders dedicated to upholding the oath to the Constitution we’ve all taken. Having gained the support of all local stakeholder agencies to the “concept” of a public-private partnership teaming local government agencies with a community of already trained Oath Keepers through the OK CPT (Community Preparedness Team), we reached out to the Christian to be part of a committee tasked to develop the “concept” into an actionable win-win-win plan to fortify and strengthen the community we all love in the event of any and all natural or man-made disasters. He loved it…until he read the invitation to the NY Oath Keeper Awards Dinner where we honored Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke and NY Sheriff Mike Carpinelli for their devotion to the Constitution, and lampooned Mayor Bill de Blasio with the Karl Marx Award. His love was unable to clear the hurdle of Political Correctness. The truth of the NY Mayor’s ideology was completely irrelevant to his mind. PC literally made truth offensive to his mind. He would have no part!

One week later I rec’d a text from the active duty officer who had agreed to speak at one of our meetings…until he read an article published in Liberty News which covered the dinner and the awards. He too found the truth to be offensive. In our conversation I observed him staking out a safe and morally-equivalent middle ground between the Left and Right. But nothing disturbed me more than listening to a man who plays such a key role in the safety of all county residents deny the “objective reality” of the Orlando shooter’s ideology as a key factor in the latest in the very long and growing list of Jihadist attacks.

And finally, I was able to have a conversation with the Gay Liberal “offended and annoyed” by my open letter on the Orlando shooting. I asked how in the world a person trained as a therapist could reconcile the idea of political correctness as something good. How could anything that is not only a restriction and infringement on our cherished right of free speech, but also so clinically damaging and unhealthy from a therapeutic perspective as well, be something they could possibly support…knowing that most of the worst criminal psychopaths and serial killers in history are people who’ve experienced authoritative suppression in their lives. And what is political correctness if not classic authoritative suppression? In fact, their clinical training equips them with the knowledge that authoritative suppression can and will, over time, convert natural emotional energy into demonic emotional energy.

The only antidote, and acceptable response from all three infected souls as Jesus Christ is my witness, is truth to power! By submitting to the rules of political correctness, we are aiding and abetting the Devil himself. By choosing truth over the PC narrative, we by the grace of God are now forcing the Devil into the light on our terms. Checkmate! By redacting reference (insult) to Islam from the Orlando Jihadist 911 tapes, Loretta Lynch was forcing Americans into compliance with Sharia Law! Every good American, ESPECIALLY Democrats, needs to speak out. Apparently enough did…

In the case of the Christian, his pastoral shepherd will eventually lead him to see the truth in these things because he knows the true mediator and great uniter of us all. In fact, staying in relationship with all three as active witnesses to the truth is the only right path where all good people are concerned. I respectfully accepted the police officer’s position and told him I would always have his back. The conversation with the therapist was respectful and two-way. I told her my love for her required truthfulness. She told me that she chose not to live in my world. I asked if she understood how bad people would capitalize on that. She said yes. That is all…we hugged and parted. All we can do as friends and lovers is engage, plant our seeds, and pray. God will always take care of the rest. The evil of PC forces us to ignore, suppress and forget.

The Brexit was a Richter 10 “earthquake” in your physical world. Now brace yourself for the following Richter 10 in our supernatural world. The Destroyer

Thank God For This Day of Freedom and Rebuke!

#SorosLoser!

#SorosLoser!

The only possible way things could be any brighter right now is if we all got the word that the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania took his cue from the one at 12 Downing who had already announced his departure before I had my first cup of coffee this morning. It is next to impossible to overstate the joy in my heart for what the Brits, by the grace of God, have given us this morning.

The Brexit vote to leave the Godless and Corrupt European Union is every bit as big as D-Day was more than half a century ago in rescuing the hope of individual liberty from the clutches of tyrannical despotism. It is a thunderous roaring rebuke of Obama, Soros and the despicable cast of globalist schemers who hung their hats in Brussels. But understand, Brexit like D-Day is only the beginning of a very long fight to finally liberate ourselves from the ruling class elites who literally have the entirety of Western Civilization in their vice-like death grip.

There are those who say Trump is our American Brexit. They credit him for being the one to thrust “borders” and “immigration” to top of the list of political talking points. The very last two words the elites wanted being discussed and processed in the public arena. Because now the average European and American understands these two words to mean “Illegal Invasion”!

I wouldn’t look for Obama to follow Cameron out the door though. He’s a much darker, angrier soul than Cameron…and he is packing some serious Chicago heat. He is absolutely spiteful and vindictive enough to take it all down with him. This one hurt him. SCOTUS yesterday followed by Brexit today. They are the most dangerous when wounded and cornered. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst my friends. This could be one very long hot summer we’re all in for.

God Bless America!

PS- You’ll want to tune in this Sunday “Entire Physical World Is a Symptom of the Supernatural War”

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ We Are ALL “Fish in the Barrel” of Social-Justice

"Fish In A Barrel"

“Fish In A Barrel”

“Our Republic is a hot mess.” ~ Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, June 11

“He just kept shooting us…like fish in a barrel.” ~ Orlando Islamic Attack Survivor, June 12

“The Lady Justice our Founders adopted blinds government to the parties involved. The Social Justice the Marxists created blinds the people to the parties involved.” ~ Shutupnsing, June 18

Not a single one of us who gathered to honor and hear from Sheriff Clarke last Saturday night in Albany imagined the hell that was about to break out on a dance floor 1,221 miles to the south in the next 6 hours…and not a one of us was in the least bit surprised.

I received quite a lot of feedback from An Open Letter to My Gay Friends & Family on Orlando. While the majority of responses were positive, they came from the choir. The point of the letter which was meant to speak to us ALL (Left, Right and Gay), was that an awakening within the heart of LGBT Liberal territory would be a crucial turning point that (apparently in my dreams) would bring us together around our Constitution and avert a civil war. As Milo put it; The left has got to make a decision. Either they want female emancipation and it wants gay rights or it wants Islam. It’s got to pick.

FACT ~ From 9/11/01 to 2012 the U.S. Muslim population doubled. Obama has imported one million Muslims in his 7 ½ years, bringing the total close to 4 million. They are the fastest rising segment of our population by far. 51% of them want Sharia!

The Latest Trump Uproar ~ “Something is going on. He (Obama) doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. Its one or the other.” ~ Donald Trump in the wake of Orlando shooting. He really lit the beltway fuse with that one! But was he right? You be the judge!

So now what? Two thirds of my target audience (Liberals & Gays) regurgitated my letter as if it were a bad clam…without addressing a single point. Solidarity? Schmolidarity! A Liberal Gay therapist received it as “annoying and offensive”. When I responded that my only concern was the safety of my family, they blamed my “political hyperbole” for obfuscating my intention. Whew!

                                                       Miracle or Civil War?

I am way beyond looking to score political points. The 100% pure intention of my letter was to save lives and protect the safety of those I love; Left, Right & Gay! Period. Since that clearly missed the mark, allow me to describe the only two paths from this point as I see them:

The Miraculous Path ~ The seed of God’s Grace enters the heart of those who up until now have refused to see the objective truth, opening their eyes to our common enemy.

The Civil War Path ~ The “Hot Mess” Sheriff Clarke referred to boils into a Hot War.

Most of us who can say the words war is hell, have never lived the meaning of the words. The miraculous path, which I don’t see happening, means a change of heart-shift in power. Clinton and possibly Obama will face prison…Clinton for corruption. Obama for treason. All other complicit parties will face a slap on the wrist. It would be a peaceful transition.

Here, in my view, is what the far more likely Hot War will look like. First we need to take a real honest look at who we are as a people. You’ve seen the “road rage” videos recently. You’ve seen the Black Friday mob videos showing your fellow citizens pepper-spraying, trampling and clubbing each other…for a flat screen TV. And we’ve seen the brutal destruction and mayhem played out on the streets of Ferguson and Baltimore…and Trump supporters savagely attacked earlier this month in San Jose.

FACT ~ When the Left protests, people get hurt, buildings burn and property gets destroyed. When the Right protests, local emergency services breathe easy!

Now take the ordinary thuggery described above and add this little accelerant predicted by Sheriff Clarke in October of 2015; Before long, Black Lies Matter will join forces with ISIS to being down our legal constituted republic. You heard it first here. Our FBI Director has already assured us that there are ISIS cells in every State of Our Union. Got the picture?

Now on the other side of this revolutionary coin toss, we have our Oath Keepers. We have the Chris Kyles and the Ivan Castros. We’ve all heard of American Sniper Chris Kyle, but most of us have yet to hear the story of Green Beret Ivan Castro. That’s because the American Sniper author has completed but hasn’t published the book yet. Totally blinded by a mortar round in Afghanistan, Ivan Castro fought his way back from the suicidal depths of despair to compete in marathons, the Invictus Games, and convince his superior officers he was fit to return to active duty. Got the picture? By the way, in the interest of full disclosure, I work out with these guys every other day!

Hell on Earth ~ If you’ve ever been in the middle of a really good bar-room brawl, you have a sliver of a sliver of a glimpse of the rumble about to begin. Now square to the tenth and multiply by a thousand and you might reach the border of the hell on earth coming our way. And there will be nowhere to go to avoid “the middle”. Neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend. People on the Left will kill people on the Right for being on the Right, as people on the Right will kill those on the Left for the same. There will be no order, no rule of law, no due process. It will be law of the jungle. Law enforcement and emergency services personnel will be forced to choose sides just like everyone else. The politicians and ruling class elites who brought us to the dance will realize their fences aren’t high enough and their moats aren’t deep enough. MANY, MANY, MANY of us will die horrible deaths. In the end, those complicit (and the list is very, very long Joe Scarborough and various university presidents) will be summarily executed. And IF God wills, our Republic will be restored.

The left has got to make a decision. Either they want female emancipation and it wants gay rights or it wants Islam. It’s got to pick.

Well?

The Second Coming ~ William Butler Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre                                                                                 The falcon cannot hear the falconer;                                                                                      Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;                                                                                Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,                                                                                       The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere                                                                     The ceremony of innocence is drowned;                                                                                      The best lack all conviction, while the worst                                                                                    Are full of passionate intensity.

On the other hand, our miracle could come as the seed of God’s Grace…in the heart of a rabbi;

Teacher ~ Shutupnsing, April 2016

Teacher…take my hand                                                                                                                       Help me…to understand                                                                                                                   Why can’t they see…how this world is killing me                                                                 Deader than the stones beneath your feet…teacher

Teacher…you taught me love                                                                                                        Then welcomed…nightfall from above                                                                                     How’s a man supposed to be alive in a democracy                                                                    Where freedom runs like shadows from the sun…teacher

If there’s one thing I could ask of you                                                                                       Please tell me when the killing time is through…teacher

Teacher…take my hand                                                                                                               Together…we can save this land                                                                                                 Don’t let these people murder me                                                                                                 Don’t let them rewrite history                                                                                                      Don’t leave me here in the pouring rain                                                                                       My heart’s too broke to bleed again…                                                                                       When faith is all we’ve got to hold on to…teacher,                                                           Teacher…I’ll remember you
