The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Castaway

Noland & Wilson

The heart is the first thing to live in physical and in spiritual birth. ~ Oswald Chambers, Birthplace of Words

Today’s Christian in this modern world is truly a castaway. But unlike the Tom Hanks character in the movie, we are castaway intentionally by the world and voluntarily by ourselves. In Castaway, after his plane goes down leaving him stranded on a remote desert island, FedEx executive Chuck Noland wants desperately to get back to the world he is accidently separated from…a world in which he counted precious minutes the way a miser counts his nickels and dimes. We Christians, on the other hand, are here by intention and live our fleeting minutes for a precious eternity…in the sharpest contrast imaginable, we want to rescue both loved ones and strangers from the world Noland is desperately trying to get back to. But only now am I able to see the amazing metaphoric parallels between Noland’s experience and ours…

Loneliness and Despair

The modern world is an exclusive club one has to properly fit into…smile the right smile, say the right things, wink the right wink, and nod the right nod. Modern Education has become preparatory in this…training. The Modern Community is re-arranging the deck chairs to exclude those of us with original/traditional/common sensical thought. Sadly, the majority of the Modern Christian Community resembles the Euthanasia Wait List…just when their stand is needed most. Aside from my own Christian community, I am as stranded as Noland in this world. He had Wilson. I have God.

Survival

Our survival is a matter of courage, strength, and the will of our physical being…but mostly of heart. Survival is a very interesting subject that requires a critical presupposition. Am I a spiritual being having a physical experience, or am I a physical being having a spiritual experience? The world in which we find ourselves today seems to be filled with the latter, judging by the way most people are living their lives. Not only is Narcissi’s reflection pool working overtime, but its competing with its modern cousin the smart phone. With so many looking down, who’s gazing up anymore. With so many gazing in, who’s looking out…besides (former?) NYU Professor Michael Rectenwald who had this to say on the subject of our survival, “We’re undergoing a Maoist-like Cultural Revolution — with the power of the corporate mass media, corporate social media, the academy, most of corporate America, the deep state, the shadow government, and most of the legal apparatuses behind it. Anti-western, anti-individual, anti-Christian, anti-liberty monsters are ravaging our cultural legacies as well as our contemporary arts and letters. Our entire culture is under siege and undergoing an utter and relentless social justice dismantling. Leftist totalitarianism is running amok. We’re on the precipice of completely losing our culture, the benefits of western civilization, and the entire legacy of western civilizational history. A major resurgence and counter attack is necessary and soon.” Trust me dear friend, if the Maoists have their way, death will be the most merciful form of survival…

Our Rescue 

If you saw the movie you know that Noland was stranded for so long he lost everything. His wife, having given him up for dead, remarried. In a physical sense he is reborn because he has to start his life all over again, as the movie ends with a tease…leaving us guessing. Hanks was a great comedic actor in the very beginning of his career (The Money Pit). Father Schall wrote a great piece on what makes comedy called On a Nameless Dread. It really got me thinking about how much I miss real comedy, and how the herds of Millennials yearning for Socialism will likely never know what it’s like to laugh with people instead of at them. It also made me think how nations die slowly…laughter being one of the first canaries to go. But it also brought me back to survival, and how laughter is a great form of rescue…as all of us who’ve had moments of dread literally blown away with a good laugh, usually with the help of someone possessing a great delivery and an even greater sense of timing. This is where the most amazing parallel between Noland’s castaway experience and ours as Christians fell beautifully into place. Being Christian is hard by design. Staying Christian is even harder, because our rescue is ONLY found in our suffering…which happens to be the one thing that most of us have gotten pretty good at avoiding…which is why I believe the two greatest tools a Christian can have are perseverance and patience. It took Noland years of studying the moon and tides to finally figure out how to outsmart the surf that wanted to keep him a prisoner, and finally sail beyond the bars that held him. And so it is with us. Noland had Wilson…we have God. Noland had a sailboat…we have prayer. Take heart…

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Compounding Nature of Things

Love Conquers All

Love is the key, love is the secret weapon. Forget about how you feel. Love is not a feeling; it’s a decision to prefer the good of others. ~ Douglas D. Dewey

Something amazingly profound occurred to me this week in an extremely powerful clash of love from the Christian Community with hate from Hollywood Blvd. After watching this young Latino, ginned up by Maxine Waters, attack a much older Trump-supporting veteran, I woke up yesterday to the most beautiful explanation of being Christian I’ve ever read. It literally transformed my day along with everything and everyone in it. I loved and felt loved by nearly every soul I came in contact with…the exact polar opposite of what our friends were experiencing on the West Coast. They hated Reagan, but this is something different…something different in us. Forget the level of hatred that fueled the split between North and South in the 19th century, and the flames of racial strife in the last. We are living through something immeasurably worse. And it made me think of the compounding nature of things…

Doctors deal with the injury of compound fractures. Investors enjoy benefits of compound interest. We all have a way of compounding our problems. Positive or negative, it is all exponential in effect. Money is not the root of all evil, compounding error is. WE humans have a dreadful reluctance when it comes to admitting our errors and owning our mistakes. And it goes all the way back to the Garden and the most famously fatal error of all…the bite. Oh, there have been plenty since…Vatican ll…birth of the Federal Reserve…death of the Gold Standard…the EU, to name a few. So, as I get into my car on a perfectly wonderful sunny morning still glowing from the Dewey article on Christianity on my way to the gym, the Byrds classic sixties version of Dylan’s Mr. Tambourine Man comes on…Turn, Turn, Turnall I really wanna do is baby be friends with you (sure)…I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now. Needless to say, it was a beautifully nostalgic ride…but it made me realize that a sliver of a fraction of error at launch means lightyears off course from our destination in the end. There is no such thing as free love. We bought it anyway. And along with it came our public education system, the death of prayer and pledge, the birth of Professor Yinka, raging Antifa, and swinging pick axes on Hollywood Blvd.

Now before you throw in the towel and give up the ghost, here is what I…or I should say Newton has discovered which shines a wonderful light on the darkness of things. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. After watching the Waters/Hollywood brawl, I posted with the caption “Liberalism in its death throes” because the error has devolved into a climax of hatred which is always self-consuming. What began as Woodstock ended at Altamont. What posed as freedom, compassion, inclusive (Triversity E’lissa???), co-existence, and social justice, turned out to be corporate/globalist-fed institutional fascism…which ironically is about to be consumed by the one thing it could never control and hated most…LOVE.

A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late…

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Of Fear Itself

Democrat Mid-Term Hopes

The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself. ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

I have surprised myself by the numbers of times I have found myself having to summon the courage to overcome my fears, over the past several years. But I’ll admit I’m even more surprised at how few seem willing to do the same. As it turns out, I happened to be reading the Genesis story of Jacob and Esau, the sons of Isaac this week. As you might remember, Jacob stole his older brother’s birthright by deception, essentially disinheriting his brother Esau. Twenty years later, he humbled himself before God in prayer and returned home to face the brother who had sworn to kill him. Jesus Himself faced fear so great in Gethsemane, his facial capillaries burst causing him to sweat blood. Think about the pain of rejection you suffered when the greatest love(s) of your life kicked you to the curb. He who loved every single human life infinitely more than that was about to take on the hatred, ridicule, scourging, torture and murder by those whom He loved most…for/while saving them! It is incomprehensible.

Jacob found it…Jesus conquered it and more I tell myself as I’m off with my Oath Keeper brothers and sisters to peacefully defend our Constitution against the naked aggression of masked professors, Communist, and Anarchist thugs armed with batons, bats, bike locks…and hatred in their hearts. They would be rightfully known as our “domestic enemies” if it were not for our greatest enemy, Fake News. But such is not the case, which is why there are precious few of us willing to stand up to them. And by standing up to them, I’m not referring only to the streets in Berkeley, Ferguson, and Portland…I’m talking about confronting them in the sleepy hollows of Warwick as (your real name) rather than hiding behind computer screens and the curtain of pseudonym. I assure you that if more of us in more places had been willing to stand up and say more for more years, there would be no riots in Ferguson…no fires at Berkeley. But for fear of fear itself, too many of us allowed the radicals and academic hacks, all absent the slightest modicum of character or integrity, to regulate our thought and expression…as we sat and continue to sit in silence. And what is silence, but passive approval, consent, and submission?

How did we get here? How is it that so few of us cannot look away from what so many of you whom we loved and adored cannot or will not face? Do you not see the classic bully/bullied paradigm most all of us overcame playing out again? Sure, the bully is bigger…but so are we! Something very powerful is born in us when we stand up to evil. And conversely something dies when we ignore, avoid, relegate, and/or obfuscate that which was ours to eliminate…leaving the bigger mess for others to deal with. I had a man who stood a good six inches taller than me come up to “get in my face” after I had spoken my mind at a public meeting. His movement was aggressive as he attempted to use his size to intimidate me. It didn’t work for a number of reasons, none of which were physical. I simply stood my ground and looked him square in the eye. When we were younger we had to physically overcome the bully. Now it’s much easier to do with confidence and faith alone…and of course, the wisdom to know when to walk away.

The recent showdown outside Democrat Congresswoman Mad Max Waters’ LA office this past week was a perfect example of such wisdom. The entire world got a very good look at what has become of the Democrat Party. The swooshing sound you may have heard was thousands upon thousands more of the #WalkAway movement running for the exit doors! Our Oath Keeper protest of the NYU professor went much differently in New York because, when you stop and think about it, New York and California are like two completely different countries. The Northeastern United States is much more Conservative than the West Coast United States. The latter is a Socialist train wreck hellbent on Venezuelan and European-like outcomes where they are actually banning bible-reading on church property now. South LA is a hell-hole, and San Francisco has literally become a public cesspool.

In the end, our New York protest was a pleasant surprise. It reminded me somewhat of Jacob who returned home in good faith prepared to die and found his brother’s embrace instead. We found kids starving for the truth. As I said to my brothers and sisters on the West Coast after things worked out as well as they did, quoting Page’s letter to Jefferson: “We have an angel in the whirlwind.” Of course, there were enough of us then who chose not to look away, but to do what they knew had to be done. I believe that it is in our National DNA to do the same this time around…in the same relative numbers. And we most certainly will…by God. You?

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Waiting On The Calvary

Waiting on the Calvary?

Blessed be the Lord, my strength which teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight.       ~ Psalm 144:1

So, there I was last Sunday feeling a little like Churchill and relating to Noah in the sense of my relationship to the gathering storm, the coming flood and my fellow man…couched in our indifference like shells upon the shore, they don’t hear the ocean’s roar. And along come the Wild Boars! A Thai soccer team…12 boys and their coach stranded in a cave on the 1st day of the World Cup. And then I read Michael Pakaluk’s I Will Make You Fishers of Wild Boars. “It is part of the Christian conception of providence that such “public” trials do not just happen by accident, but are by design, within God’s plan, and meant to teach.”

Imagine Churchill’s and Noah’s frustration, knowing what they knew, surrounded by a significant majority of people who thought they were crazy. Another great TCT author wrote about the elimination of the great literary classics from our public education system, which I likened to our own cultural suicide. In reality its murder…the very heart of Western Civilization, Christendom is being dismantled. We Christians are being persecuted, silenced, literally, figuratively, and systemically murdered, eliminated, liquidated, and disposed of…while we ACT as though we are trapped helplessly in a cave, as if all we can do is wait on the cavalry, or in our case the Calvary. I revealed my frustration in last week’s SMTU when I wrote, “I see the Left turning our Public Square into a 24/7 Mardi Gras while my Christian brothers and sisters shutter themselves into the very “Idios” who kept to themselves in Ancient Greece…” and on July 4th, “In fact, the Father of Lies is so good at what he does, the town I once lived in has thrown four consecutive parties in two months’ time in the public square in his (the devil’s) honor, while the believers refuse to venture outside their shelters…” Is this our Christian calling…to sit in prayerful life amongst ourselves and wait for God to rescue us…while we take no action to directly engage those who are themselves in the act of wiping us from the face of this earth…for fear of being “political”? Really?

Tell me what it is that separates us from the Rev. Sam West call to action …It is an indispensable duty, my brethren, which we owe to God and our country, to rouse up and bestir ourselves, and, being animated with a noble zeal for the sacred cause of liberty, to defend our lives and fortunes, even to the shedding of the last drop of blood. Is it the 242 years, our political correctness, our tax exemption, our pension? Do we truly believe that we have more to risk than they did? Or is it simply our want to avoid conflict? I tell you I don’t know whether I am more sickened or saddened by our pathetic derelictions.

I recently proposed the idea of organizing a Pro-Life Parade in Warwick to two solid Christian men. We’re still a free country, and the Left has taken full advantage using OUR public square to express their values and beliefs. The reaction I got made me feel as though I suggested we all strip naked and dance down Main Street howling at the moon! Its as though our hearts and minds are completely closed to the thought of any action that might seem like engagement or conflict. But isn’t this how we’ve lost, or are in the process of losing the public square in the first place? Isn’t this how we lost prayer in public schools, marriage between a man and a woman, and the Boy Scouts? How much further down the slippery slope are we willing to slide? This is the oldest of old stories…the classic Bully/Bullied paradigm, is it not? Where in the entire history of man…in fact, where in the Holy Bible itself is there ONE instance where God saved a people who were unwilling to stand up for themselves? The Wild Boars and their coach are alive today because God helps those who help themselves. Moral courage, bravery, and risk saved those kids. And yes, it cost a Thai SEAL his life. No greater love…

Last weekend Stewart Rhodes called for volunteers to travel to the NYU campus in Manhattan to protest the professor (Sam Lavigne) who had doxxed and posted the personal contact info on over 1,500 ICE agents for the sole purpose of turning them and their families into targets. Six of us answered the call, three from NY and three from NJ. We went in Oath Keeper colors. My shirt carries the Psalm 144:1 quote boldly printed on the back. We made quite the sight strolling through Washington Square Park in the beautiful morning sunlight…in the East Coast Mecca of Liberalism. But, unlike Antifa, we weren’t masked and armed with batons and bike locks. We came only with information fliers explaining who Professor Lavigne was and what he had done. We engaged dozens of men and women, young and old, and what we learned was very encouraging. First, we learned that Truth itself is a very powerful weapon. Second, we learned that so many, especially the younger ones, are starving for it. After we had returned, Matt noticed a posting on our website suggesting that we do to the professor what he had done to the ICE agents and their families. To which he replied, “That would make us no better than him.” When in fact our method of engagement this past Monday at NYU won hearts and minds. This, my friends, by the Grace of God, is how we will save ourselves.

BUT FIRST, we need to know and understand the gathering storm and flood:

I recently saw a movie that shook me to the core. Even though I am in the movie and delivered some commentary about the Federal Reserve System, I had forgotten about the day I spent with the film crew in Austin, Texas, many months ago. I had seen the segments in which I appeared, which the producer sent to me as a courtesy, but when I finally watched the whole movie, I was stunned.

When my commentary was joined with scores of others who spoke from first-hand knowledge about loss of liberty and growth of government, the pieces came together like a giant jigsaw puzzle that revealed a disturbing picture of the social and political Hell we are rapidly approaching.

The movie is called Revelation; Dawn of Global Government, starring Charlie Daniels, Alex Jones, and Special-Ops General “Jerry” Boykin. The outstanding narrators include Larry Pratt, (Gun Owners of America), Stewart Rhodes, (Oath Keepers), Joel Skousen, (World Affairs Brief), even Ted Nugent has something to say! It is one of the best overviews of the mortal challenges facing America – and the world – I have ever seen.

The future of liberty may depend on how many people see this film. Normally that would require a visit to a theater, the purchase of a DVD, or a pay-per-view. However, the producer of the film has offered to let subscribers to Need to Know News and attendees of Red Pill Expo watch the entire movie free beginning July 8 to July 22 only. Click https://oathkeepers.org/2018/07/its-showtime-right-now-free-screening-of-revelation-thru-july-22/ to gain access. ~ G. Edward Griffin… You have seven days…

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ In the Name of Love

Remember the Vendee!

…It is an indispensable duty, my brethren, which we owe to God and our country, to rouse up and bestir ourselves, and, being animated with a noble zeal for the sacred cause of liberty, to defend our lives and fortunes, even to the shedding of the last drop of blood. The love of our country, the tender affection we have for our wives and children, the regard we ought to have for unborn posterity, yea, everything that is dear and sacred, do now loudly call upon us to use our best endeavors to save our country. ~ Reverend Samuel West, May 29, 1776 “The Critical Importance of Faith in the Fight For Liberty”, Stewart Rhodes

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go.
One man come he to justify
One man to overthrow. ~ U2

I believe love, an often used word, is one of the least understood and most misapplied words in the English language…in our time. I love that song. I love chocolate. I love your hair. I love you…as long as you give me what I need, believe what I believe, and feel like I feel. I love you as long as you make me feel good about me. Me-Me-Me. Otherwise known as conditional love. As Christians we are taught to love as Jesus loved, unconditionally…even our enemies.

U2 started out as a Christian rock band. Bono’s Christian heart was clearly touched by the moral courage of Martin Luther King, who was forever silenced early morning April 4, shot rings out in the Memphis sky. He has since traded in his Christian heart for that of a globalist “Social Justice Warrior shilling for the UN and the EU. A wise career move, no doubt. But then again, John Brennan, James Comey, and James Clapper thought covering up for Barack Obama, and protecting Hillary Clinton were wise career moves too.

I had a dear friend gently take me to task over last week’s SMTU assertion that Bob Dylan had actually sold his soul to the devil, as he himself told Morley Safer he had. He cited Dylan’s conversion to Christianity and the clear gospel influence in Dylan’s earlier work as proof of his Christian pedigree. That’s all fine and good. Reagan was a Democrat. Bono was a Christian. We arrived at a bottom-line consensus…it is how we finish that matters.

So, let’s talk about the finish, shall we? In his mind, Bono was honoring MLK. But…One man come in the name of love was Jesus. One man come and go was Obama. One man come he to justify, is the Social Justice Warrior (Bono himself). One man to overthrow is our President Donald J. Trump. I described the devil as the master of master chess players last week…there is only One Grand Master. And we my friends are at the finish line.

You may have noticed the Left ratcheting up their violent, divisive, and hateful rhetoric of late. It appears global for the simple reason it is all Corporate-Globalist funded. The Left wants revolution, and they are much more than likely to get what they are wanting. The question we might ponder, is will this revolution be American or French-like in bloody nature. I’m tending to side with Barnhardt here, The parallels between what happened in France just over 200 years ago, and what we have seen and are seeing before our eyes today in the (former) U.S. are stunning.  The only difference is that today’s culture is starting from a far, far worse level.  Remember, almost everyone in France 200 years ago was a weekly Mass-going Catholic.” And you really need to read the imbedded article to get a glimpse into the dark mind of the modern-day Catholic Michael Sean Winters to understand just how screwed we are. Couple that with Maureen Mullarkey’s article in the Federalist revealing the entire USCCB as sell-outs to the Globalist Devil!

Where does that leave us? You tell me. Do you see a Christian man who remotely resembles the body and spirit of Sam West? Because I do not. I see the Left turning our Public Square into a 24/7 Mardi Gras while my Christian brothers and sisters shutter themselves into the very “Idios” who kept to themselves in Ancient Greece…for fear of being “political”. How delightfully emboldened we have made the devil.

I’m warning you, this will go hot soon…and you can’t begin to possibly imagine. Last year we (Oath Keepers) helped provide security for an Anti-Sharia Rally in Foley Square. Our point man for the operation suffered a major heart attack at the very end. He had to be resuscitated 8 times…while the Antifa cheered and applauded what they hoped would be his death. This week we learned that an adjunct professor at NYU “doxed” the personal address and contact information of over 1,500 ICE agents, turning them and their families into targets of the Antifa and far worse. Professor Samuel Lavigne is his name. Please feel free to call or write the “Powers-that-Be” at NYU to voice your displeasure. And by all means, feel free to join us on the ramparts when you can…we’ll be warming them up for you. Because as our prosperity has made monsters, so has and will adversity make us into men. And it is what REAL men do for Love. www.oathkeepers.org

Why Freedom Is Worth Dying For

The Silver Moon Knows, When The Sun Goes Away…

It’s becoming something beyond surreal to see former directors of our own “intelligence” agencies and FBI ratchet up the hateful rhetoric towards our President on an exact parallel trajectory to his meteoric success. How does one explain? We expect it of Whoopie Goldberg…but John Brennan, James Clapper, and James Comey?

Surreal seems to be the permanent address the Left desires for us all. Stolen Valor is the term used for self-serving opportunists who’ve never served in the military, who claim the honor for their own personal gain by wearing the colors in public or making false claims…as Senator Blumenthal did a few years back by claiming he saw battle in Vietnam when he was never there. Typical of those with no moral compass, he’s at it again. Just as most Black Americans cringe when the Left steals the valor of their ancestors by lifting the reality and nobility of their heroic struggles, and applying it to the morally destitute assault by LGBT community on Christendom and the traditional family, a Polish Nazi concentration camp survivor is going after Blumenthal for likening Trump’s immigration policy to the “cattle cars of Nazi Germany”.

We live in a culture that, in many ways, is built on a network of now accepted, logically interrelated lies that we have deliberately put into law, into private and public life, under the name of “rights.” Or so says Father Schall. Whether he is right or wrong, I will leave to you…which more than likely you will judge with the empaneled jury of your own perceived “rights” rather than a jury duty and conscience-bound to our rule of law.

As we learned in C. S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters, “the believer is the one who can read most anything. The unbeliever dare not allow a line of argument start into his soul, one that would lead him logically to where he refuses to go.” And it is this fact that Father Schall reveals that carries us to the very point of today’s message. When the unbelievers reach critical mass, they come to believe the most fatal lie of all…that they have the power to force their lies onto the believers. They become the book-burners. Those decrying oppression and fascism become the fascist oppressor. And the Valor Thief pointing the “cattle car” finger, is the next one in the long line of history’s tyrant parade, at the ready to fill them again.

And it is here my friend, where the rubber of history meets the road, that we get to the harsh reality crux of the biscuit, as they say. There are only so many of us who will refuse to accept the lies, give up our books, and board the cars. The devil is that good at what he does: Most non-believers, as they see it, do not take the Devil seriously. They find him a rather charming, debonair, and witty character. He is suave, sophisticated, and one step ahead of us.

In fact, the Father of Lies is so good at what he does, the town I once lived in has thrown four consecutive parties in two months’ time in the public square in his honor, while the believers refuse to venture outside their shelters…for fear of being seen as “political”. This was part of my comment in response to Father Schall’s piece, Too many of us have been conditioned (by the Father of Lies) to see fighting as un-Christian-like behavior. As a result of our reluctance to even battle with words, we are on the brink of our 2nd Civil War.

So here we are some 242 years after our forefathers (my 4th great grandfather Andrew included) stood up to Screwtape the first time to conceive our great nation, ready and willing to die. But NOT for the reason you might think. Screwtape would have you believe that greedy-old-us would lay down our lives to pass it all along for the sake of our own posterity…an intention as noble as they come. But ours is much deeper, and the far greater wound to the greatest of the great chess masters. We know the devil’s ultimate play is for us to deny our Creator, the true source of the freedom and rights we cherish. It is the devil’s greatest anguish to know after all his tricks, games, and ploys that it is for Him we lived, and for Him we are prepared to die because: The silver moon knows when the sun goes away, tomorrow she will shine on Independence Day.

Most Precious Blood of Life Eternal, price of sinful man’s redemption, by whose saving streams the thirst of souls is quenched, and their stains are washed away, Thou Who dost plead the cause of man before the throne of infinite mercy, from the depths of my heart I adore Thee and desire, as much as lies in my power, to make atonement for the injuries and insults that are constantly offered Thee by mankind, and especially by those who rashly dare to blaspheme Thee. Who will not bless and praise this Blood of infinite value? Whose soul would not be inspired with love for Jesus Who shed It all for us? What would be my fate, had I not been redeemed by this Divine Blood? And what drew Thee from the veins of my Savior even to the last drop? It was love! O boundless love, which has given us this saving balm! O priceless balm, welling from the fount of immeasurable love! Grant that all hearts and tongues may praise Thee, magnify Thee, and give Thee thanks, now and throughout all ages. Amen.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Time of Our Lives

The World They’ve Fashioned For US!

Once upon a time in America the Left and the Right actually co-existed even with some bumps along the way because both were tethered to reality. Tragically, that is no longer the case. Could there be anything more untethered from reality than a parade of God/Trump/man-hating lesbian-feminists marching to beat of “Families Belong Together”? Or, these very same “sisters” with a seething intolerance for Christians so unabashedly willing to open their arms and our borders to those best known for wrapping their Iranian sisters in burqas, mutilating their sex organs and throwing gays to their death from rooftops? We did cover this in last week’s SMTU. In case you haven’t noticed, the two words getting the most exposure in print and airwaves today are civil war, and for very good reason I hasten to add. In the time of our lives, we are in for the fight of our lives. The Left in this country is fast becoming a mad dog. There is no compromise, negotiating, or reasoning with a mad dog…as anyone who has ever had the unfortunate experience knows.

Moby brought me back to the once upon a time with his “Pop Music is Terrible” lament earlier this week. It made me pine for the once upon a time when our music was so full of life and wonder, romance and love…and then I was finally able to find one of my favorite once-upon-a- time movies that I had been unable to find anywhere. The Time of Their Lives

The music and the movies were better because we were better people creating for the soul purpose of entertaining the audience. Today these industries are dominated by the very worst of us…people like Quentin Tarantino who cheered the Polanski vicious anal rape of a 13-yr-old as consensual. There is an old 60 Minutes interview where Bob Dylan actually admits to his deal with the Devil. From the spark that caught in the early Liverpool days to the present-day shill for the Globalist State Sir Paul…

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
Indeed you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
~ Bob Dylan

And serve they have. The music score and screenplay for the entire world has been written and produced top-down by the destroyer of men’s souls. Every single boardroom in corporate America dances to the music. Even the Pope! When the Mom & Pop Five & Dimes sold out to the Amazon Box, we lost our independence and worse…our innocence. And those of us who refused to dance became “Deplorable”. Deacon Toner explains the present madness as the “Perennial Illusion”  process of creating “moral Frankensteins”. This is a must-read for anyone and everyone trying to make sense of the world they are trying to find themselves in.

I listened to a radio caller yesterday describe our circumstances perfectly. After laying out the facts of our situation and those responsible she asked the host (Roger Stone), “What can we do?” I found myself talking to the radio. Roger suggested she help “get the word out”. Actually it goes much deeper…like the well Melody and the Tinker found themselves bound to “for all eternity”…until the Truth was discovered. We are Melody and the Tinker in the Time of Our Lives. We who love Truth enough to risk and even give our lives for it will find reward so far beyond the greatest treasures here, I couldn’t possibly describe it to you. Nor do I need to… because something inside each and every one of us already knows. The Time of Our Lives is dangerous because WE made it so. I guess you could say we all got caught up in the dance. But WE will be the ones, the only ones who must decide our fate from this moment on. When a group of bitter lesbian feminists occupy our public square, do we lament behind our computer screens, or do we fill the same square with our own PRO-LIFE response? When the Globalists incite violence and death threats against those who protect the sovereignty of the country we love and ALL we hold dear, do we cower in silence or do we respond as the Americans who came before us in the time of their lives?  WE CAN DO IT!
