Once again, the left is violent

Beginning in late spring of 2020, the country, and in fact the world, has watched as liberal groups have rioted, robbed businesses blind, and burned anything they can to the ground, all over what many say are manipulated events designed to foment this hate in society. George Floyd, while he should not have been killed by those arresting him, was extremely high on several illegal drugs, had a history of violence, and resisted arrest. It’s very well known that when high on any of many drugs, people can exhibit enhanced strength, Floyd all but attacked the officers, so was put on the ground, and sadly, one of the officers chose to act in a way that, possibly, lead to the man’s death. Had they let him go, and he hurt someone else, the riots would still have happened as it would have been a case of “police won’t do their jobs and keep us safe, we must defund them,” followed by wanton destruction of everything possible.

Today however, the narrative is changing, slightly in some cases, not slightly at all in others. The elections of 2000 and 2016 both saw the DNC candidate sue and protest as long as they could, working to find a way to change the results so they would become President, Gore famously sued for 37 days, and the media and liberals the world over praised him for “working to ensure the election was not unfair.” Today however, as the media watched on 3 November and called states for Biden with more than 50% of votes uncounted, while refusing to call states for Trump when over 85% of votes were counted, then magically, votes show up after counting was supposedly stopped that tip a state to Biden, Trump is required to concede and all but say “I’ll leave now, we don’t have to wait until 20 January.”

Well, it’s now escalated, and while Twitter has suspended the miscreant, this is one person, and there are many others who think the same. It seems that Adam Rahuba decided to tell the President Of The United States that he had 4 days to concede or he and his comrades would begin ATTACKING PEOPLE and blocking the economy in full in “conservative areas.” He also said they were armed and would “retaliate to attempts at vehicular manslaughter.”

Now, I live in Texas, where thankfully, our state government has yet to demand we surrender our rights to keep and bear arms, or to defend ourselves from attack. If I am driving and see armed people blocking the street, you can bet my truck will be doing 70 or more as I do all I can to escape those attempting to stop me for God only knows what purpose. I’ve watched as people are stopped, dragged from their vehicle, then assaulted and left, all but dead, laying in the street. The question though, really is a simple one, why do liberals feel they have the right to assault, steal, and destroy, and that any attempt to stop them is a crime? The answer, sadly, is just as simple, they’ve been told that anyone trying to stop them “doing as they please” is “denying their right to happiness.”

It’s very simple, YOU DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO HAPPINESS! You have the right to PURSUE HAPPINESS, which also means you may fail in that pursuit. The very people screaming that you can’t drive where they say you can’t, that you can’t defend your life when they attack you, and worse, are the very people who would demand you be hanged at dawn if you even sidestepped to go around them when they block traffic. It’s going to get worse before it gets better, so keep your eyes and ears open, your head on a swivel, and your powder dry.

All thanks to Obamacare

In 2012, famously, Nancy Pelosi said of the ACA that we “had to pass it to find out what’s in it.” Obama had said “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” and “if you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.” The first proved to show us “what’s in it” was astronomical premiums and deductibles, then we found we lost our plans and Doctors.

Just over a week ago, my foot was in BAD shape, so I chatted with the online service I subscribe to, where I was prescribed topical and oral medications, but they didn’t work. A few days later I went to the local ER, where the prescriptions were changed, only to see those make me break out in a rash that was worrying, so I went back to the ER two days later, where I was sent to hospital. After a night of little sleep, a specialist saw me and my prescriptions were changed once again, this time they worked and I’m almost back to 100%, but now I face medical bills after a week off where, due to having no vacation time, I am a week short on pay.

Thankfully, my debtors are working with me, so my burden is lower, but not low enough to ensure the loss of a week of pay is unnoticed, yet those in DC still prattle on about how we “must” just accept socialist healthcare, where the costs will see tax burdens increase exponentially, while ignoring the countless people telling them of the failures of the ACA.

I can’t help but wonder just what it will take to convince the vaunted members of Congress that they are, as always, wrong.

Listen but also think

The last few days have been filled with post after post all over the web about how this or that is going to happen, no question. Everyone has their theory, and everyone is vehement in their defense of their theory, which is to be expected, but with everyone saying something different, a lot of people are going to be wrong, at least in some way.

What I will say is that I believe the lessons of Sun Tzu are being followed by some in positions of power, to such a degree, that we will never see what happens, or understand it, until long after it’s done. You see, when you have an opponent who is hell bent on your defeat, you need to have patience and use certain strategies to ensure you follow some very simple steps.

One, never show your hand, or even hint at it. I’ve never hidden the fact that I support President Donald Trump. I have watched for nearly four decades as the political divide has widened to put the Grand Canyon to shame in it’s size. In the 1980’s, the country was flourishing, so those who have, forever I believe, wanted to subjugate the country under socialism, decided to simply bide their time. The DNC convinced Reagan to grant amnesty to countless illegal immigrants by promising a border barrier, which of course, they never delivered. In 1992, Bill Clinton began their slow march to success, but was hampered by a GOP Congress on many fronts, and in 2000, George W Bush was elected and they began to bide their time again. The left has tried to impeach every GOP President since Eisenhower, but has never been successful, but in 1998, the GOP did impeach, and convict then censure, Bill Clinton, surely angering them greatly. So, they’ve been showing their hand at every turn, never hiding their goal of raising taxes, opening the border, and ensuring the American People are ruled, not governed by public servants.

In 2016, the DNC was so sure their tactics, which had worked for decades and only achieved granting them more and more power, would ensure Hillary Clinton would become President, but when that failed, they threw all caution to the wind. Members of the DNC openly called for violence, others simply ignored it while they lied about it when forced, to the point that the current ticket has a VP Candidate that actually said the White House is “our rightful place,” admitting that they truly believe only they may ever be President and VP. 2020 has only served to further their descent into open tyranny, with their supporters preventing anyone from observing vote counting, boarding up windows, hundreds of thousands of votes are “found” in the wee hours of the morning, and 100% of those go to their candidate, judges throw out challenges, all leading to one thing, this ends up at the Supreme Court, which explains why they fought so hard to ensure Trump never managed to put anyone on that bench.

But what happens if you don’t show your hand? Simply, you let your opponent make all the mistakes, they fall into every pot hole, and when it’s all said and done, they are exposed and easily stopped. President Donald Trump attended a military high school as a teen, no matter if he served in the military after or not is irrelevant. Having studied History to the point of earning a degree, having been AFJROTC in high school, and specifically studying Military History as a subject, I know he would have learned the lessons of Sun Tzu. His adult life, turning a loan of $1,000,000 into a business empire worth over $4,000,000,000 in roughly 50 years, simply, shows a ruthless side that ensures he will not be beaten unless it’s a fair fight, which this certainly is not!

When this fully plays out, we will have concrete proof of all fraud, we will see powerful people held accountable for their crimes, and sadly, we will see a time of heightened unrest. The DNC, and even some foreign countries, are threatening military action if “Trump refuses to leave office,” but they forget two things. First, the US Military swears to uphold and defend the US Constitution, not a person, and second, the US Military is the strongest in the world! Trump has brought MANY Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines home from battlefields that, only 4 years ago, Democrats demanded they come home from, until Trump started doing it, and they demanded endless wars all over the planet. The National Guard is, at it’s core, a non-military force, or para-military force if you will. But, they swear on their State Constitution and on the US Constitution, and if called to Federal Service, are instantly in the Army or Air Force (or other service depending on their state, Texas has only Army and Air National Guard,) and beholden to their oath alone.

If either candidate, with the amount of evidence we have now, let alone more, declares victory and calls for the process to stop and their declaration be obeyed, commits, simply, treason! Should Joe Biden, despite challenges in courts in multiple states, SCOTUS orders to allow observers (so far) in PA, declare victory and call for the system to just obey him, that is an attempt to overthrow the government by claiming to control it, and that is treason. There is only one punishment for treason, I’ll let you look that up. How does that happen though? To publicly carry out said punishment would, quite simply, throw such a firework into a powder keg situation, that the country would be burning in minutes. But, to quietly address all of the issues, then release just enough information, with people “withdrawing from society” or something else happening, well, that’s easily accepted. I cannot firmly speak to the John McCain situation, other than there is evidence he personally handled the now proven false Steele dossier, meaning he was part of an attempt to remove a duly elected President, and his sudden health issues and death, well, it’s not beyond belief that something happened we’ll not know about, nor will even our great great great grandchildren, only decades or centuries after something like that could it be admitted, if even then.

Look at the JFK situation, where so many people question the event, but the official documents are still sealed, or what was released was so vague, no one knows still. My parents were in middle school on 22 November 1963, both believe, as I do, that “something was rotten in the State of Denmark” that day. Were someone to release undeniable proof that they’ve been right for 57 years ago, well, many would demand severe punishment for all those still alive who were involved. That alone would throw the government into chaos no matter if they do it or not, that is not something either side should want.

Summing up this rant, I will never tell you to not look at every angle of a situation, nor would I tell you this person or that person is wrong and I’m right, but I will tell you to think about all angles, research everything, and make up your own mind. Sadly, with the situations today, I’ll also say to be prepared to defend yourself, have the tools and skills needed already in place, keep your head on a swivel, and be aware of everything, that is often the difference in a situation going your way or not.

Eyes open, and remember, God is in control!

How much longer?

We’ve watched since February and March, when we were told it would be “two weeks to flatten the curve,” only to see society locked down more and more as we just sit and let those in power rule. Even in “conservative” Texas, we are forced to wear masks, despite countless medical experts saying they don’t work, or studies showing this is insane.

Today, I found video of Doctors in the Netherlands stating, very succinctly, that Covid 19 is a flu virus, and thus, we do not have a pandemic.

I’ve seen videos of this sort banned on social media for over a month now, and until today, it seemed that no one would be even asked to stop censoring the experts. Cheekily, I ask Twitter users or YouTube commenters to prove they are an MD, with years of experience studying viruses, and their peer reviewed, double blind, study, proving them wrong, but now it’s not out of cheek, but to prove they are not in any way qualified to debunk MD’s who say this pandemic BS is just that, BS!

So, the question now truly is, how much longer will people sit idle as they are controlled under systems that would make Orwell roll in his grave?

Could you really survive if you bugged out?

I’ve seen many people on social media in the last few months talking about their bug out bag, or plans if they have to live in the woods, and with very few exceptions, I just have to laugh. Warrior Poet Society posted a video on YouTube that was amazingly informative for anyone who’s thinking along these lines, it boils down to one thing, 99% of people will be raided by those with the skills to do so. Your “arsenal” will go to them, as will your food, water, and so on.

There will, honestly, be three or four groups of people if society truly crumbles. First, you’ll have those with the skills to survive, either working as a team to protect wherever they fortify, or alone, so far from people, you’ll never even smell them. Two, the raiders, they’ll fortify a location, and raid for supplies. Three, the victims, those raided, some will go with the raiders to join their collective, others will be left without anything. And finally, the slaves, those who refuse to leave until it’s too late, stuck in a major city where warlords will rule.

So, the question is which will you be. Honestly, it would be hard to be the first type, as that would include the possibility of leaving everyone in your life behind. I know I couldn’t do that, but thankfully, my parents, nephew, brother and future sister in law would be coming with me. There are others who would refuse, but honestly, they cut me and my other family out of their lives a while back. My Father taught us how to catch fish, snare a rabbit, grow vegetables, collect water, build a shelter, make fire without a match, and how to fight, starting at a young age. I know that, even if alone, I would have food, water, and shelter, which are all you really “need” to survive, not to mention the tools and training to ensure I am not attacked and stolen from. When coupled with my plan to be so far from people, I fade from memory, I believe I could last a while.

The point of this isn’t to be morbid or otherwise scare you. I could be happy just sitting in my tent and listening to nature, or watching YouTube, but many couldn’t, they “need” their tech. The purpose is a thought experiment. Could you, if you had to, walk away from your comfortable home (if you couldn’t fortify and defend it) and survive long time, outside of society?

Is the DNC as we knew it gone?

Every election since I’ve been able to understand what’s going on, I’ve watched Republicans and Democrats go at it hammer and tongs to win a Congressional seat, Governorship, or other office. In the 1980, as I’ve learned as I was 3 that year, Ronald Reagan asked “Are you better off now than four years ago,” and the country resoundingly said no. In 1984 Walter Mondale tried the same trick, and the country said yes, and re-elected Reagan. 1988 saw George HW Bush elected on Reagan’s coat tails, but in 1992, back to form, Bill Clinton pointed out little things, like Bush’s “read my lips, no new taxes” promise, then how Congress had raised taxes, even if Bush had signed the bill. He was charismatic, looking like a man you’d invite over for dinner and game night, and of course, won. This has always been, until now, how I’ve seen Democrats. They pander to every group, saying what they know that group wants to hear, no matter if they contradict themselves when with other groups, and the media ensures their lies and flip flopping are as invisible as possible.

2008 saw Barack Obama use the same tactics against McCain/Palin, saying what people wanted to hear, like “yes we can” or “hope and change,” how he’d make sure everyone had health care, talking about the Republican Party as if they were the most horrible bigots on the planet, just not in those words. His allies in the DNC and media, as always, hyped him more than any celebrity, ignoring their blatant attacks on Sarah Palin, as they claim to be the “party of women,” and Obama/Biden won. 2012 saw Romney/Ryan, with the same tactics, using Romney gaffes or Ryan’s youth against them, saying anything and everything, and they won again.

But 2016 changed everything, and Hillary Clinton, like Al Gore in 2000, lost the Electoral College and thus, the race. The 2000 election saw Al Gore, who is not known for being personable, yell and rant at people, making wild claims about “inventing the internet,” or how the world would end in 10 years if he wasn’t elected, and it didn’t. Then 2016 saw Hillary Clinton, the first female Presidential candidate, with a running mate who’s son is a criminal, who had said “what difference does it make” when speaking about her failure to help US diplomats when a US Embassy was attacked and those diplomats tortured and killed. Every statement she made demonized all who would not bow to her, showed her disdain for even those who would vote for her, or dodged questions when anyone dared to ask anything that would expose her.

Now, in 2020, former VP Joe Biden was declared the DNC nominee after almost no voting in the DNC primary, and Senator Kamala Harris, a woman who all but demanded he kiss her feet during debates early on, is his VP nominee. Biden won’t leave his home due to “fearing Coronavirus” while Harris pledges to raise taxes and return to paying off terrorists. Everything is about how “racist” or “sexist” Donald Trump is, and every statement is wrong. Donald Trump has never shown any racist tendencies, hires women to top positions in his administration, and has condemned violence, leaving the “media” to have to selectively edit his clips, leaving out where he directly said he was not referring to white supremacists when he said “good people” were on “both sides” of an issue. Many Democrats went on TV demanding he “denounce the white supremacists” ignoring that he had said he deplores violence from any side, until he denounced, by name, white supremacists and antifa. That was too far though, as antifa are DNC pawns.

So now we see Kenosha all but a pile of ash, Portland almost 90 days of constant riots, and only when polls start showing that Biden is being hurt by the DNC and Media LYING about the violence from liberals, do they say that Biden must denounce the riots and blame Trump. Honestly, at this point, I firmly expect to hear that it’s too dangerous due to Covid19 and the riots, to hold an election, so “The House of Representatives will do their duty and vote on behalf of the country,” and when that fails, there will be calls for Martial Law to “ensure the safety of all” by subjugating everyone. I don’t know that this will happen in my life, but make no mistake, the DNC are the party that read 1984 and took it as instructions, they read Fahrenheit 451 and agreed that banning any book they don’t personally approve of is to be done, and they will soon be the party that read Brave New World and will decide they will begin engineering citizens into castes, and keep those castes drugged.

Is this the country, the future, you want?

Masks, the questions not being asked

We are all but ordered by the federal government to wear masks everywhere we go, despite so many Medical Doctors and other experts saying they not only don’t work, but are dangerous. NOLA Nurse on Twitter shared a story about a woman taken to the hospital and told she had Covid19 and only days to live, until someone else had her tested again, and found she had Leionnaires’ Disease which was caused by wearing the mask, due to people being all but unable to avoid touching their face, adjusting the mask, most not wearing it correctly, and more.

In my area of Texas, the masks do not need to be medical or even an actual mask. I’ve seen people just pull their shirt up a bit, or wear a bandana or other “facial covering” none of which block even what an actual mask does. In restaurants, more insanely, you are “allowed” to remove your mask while at your table, but required to wear it when walking in or out of the building. If the mask was as “vital to protecting people” as we’re told, why are we allowed to remove them at any point, the answer is simple, MASKS ARE USELESS!

The N95 Mask box literally says those masks, the ones people swear by, do NOT block any Coronavirus. This strain has a less than .5% mortality rate, which puts it on par with the flue or pneumonia for any year. However, Dr. Birx explicitly stated that “all deaths WITH covid are recorded as deaths FROM covid.” This is a blatant inflation of the numbers, for only one reason, control. I’ve told this story before, but I need to here to explain the above.

From 1997 to 1998, I was a Sheriff’s Deputy, assigned to a county jail. Ultimately, I was laid off in a reduction in force, and I’m glad of it, as my mindset is that of a firefighter, not law enforcement. However, not long after leaving them, my Doctor ran a standard Tuberculosis test, which came back positive, so he re-tested, and got negative. It was later found that I am an asymptomatic carrier of TB. I can pass it on via blood, so I’m careful when I donate to let the people taking my blood know, but beyond that, I’m healthy. So, when I die, I will die WITH TB, but very unlikely is my having died FROM TB. More people die from chemo than cancer, they just die WITH cancer. This is a major distinction, and now one that “experts” have said must be violated.

My office requires masks in common areas, but I’m allowed to remove it at my desk, proving that either they know they don’t work but “must show they are complying,” or they actually believe air won’t travel from my desk to anywhere else in the office. Add to this, at present I am alone in my office, completely, and still I must wear a mask, as I know someone may see me on camera, crossing a hallway to exit the building without my mask and I’ll be in trouble.

I’ve said this before, it is not, and never has been, about health in any way. If masks were so fool proof, inmates would have been given masks and told not to leave their cells, but they weren’t, they were released to prey on the public. Now Garcetti in LA is threatening to cut utilities to homes that have too many people in them according to him, there is already video, shown below, showing someone being manhandled in a choke hold, for not wearing mask, outside, from Australia or New Zealand, I’m not sure. Australia already has to have permits to leave their home to go to work as well, and they are severely controlled on even going for groceries.

Why is it that people are fine with this, but when it comes to drugs or abortion, it’s “my body my choice?” If masks work, why am I made to wear one? If your mask works, then it will protect you, even if I’m not wearing one right? I have asked this of people, and they, to a person, have responded one of two ways. One, they agree but “have to wear it” or they can’t go to the store. The other is “you just don’t get it, masks only block your exhaled breath, so my mask protects you, you have to protect me.” They honestly think their mask can block breath only in one direction!

We have two pandemics in the world today, neither are Covid. The first is that hundreds of thousands of children are stolen and made into sex slaves, annually, the other is of the mind, heart, and conscience. People are willing to sell their liberty for perceived, but false, security. It was said best as “those who sacrifice essential liberty for temporary security deserve neither,” I tend to add “and soon lose both” to that quote.

The video above does give me some hope, but sadly, those who see and speak the truth are in the vast minority. We are rapidly approaching the world of 1984, Fahrenheit451, or Brave New World, and none are appealing. In one you are brutally subjugated, those who buck the system “re-educated” by violence, or killed, in another you are kept ignorant, those who defy the system exiled, and in the last, you are not even born, you’re engineered, then kept drugged, any who are not party of the controlled society are kept locked in tiny reservations, “studied,” and mocked. The saddest part is that so many want any of these worlds, but if they ever happen, those clamoring for them will be wailing at we who saw the path we were on for “not stopping them” while demanding we fight to free them, and if we do, they will instantly return to hating us as they demand we serve them as slaves.

It’s well past time to wake up, or this world will fall to tyranny and worse, is that what you want?

It was never about health

For over 3 months, the US has watched as virtually everyone has been ordered to stay at home. There were areas where this didn’t happen, but those are few and far between. Mostly, it was a scale from the lax quarantine of places like Texas to the almost guarded streets of California. As people watched the <i>news</i> it was always portrayed as “flattening the curve” or “a health need,” but if that was true, why have we never done this before in anyone’s lifetime who isn’t 100 years old?

The secret is all but out, it was about crippling the economy, so that politicians who don’t like that there is now a man in the White House who isn’t beholden to them could say “see, you’re worse off, vote for us and we’ll let you go back to work.” And to prove this, the tweet below was sent but later deleted, likely by someone who has now told AOC not to admit their goals.

Truth
AOC Admits the truth

Granted, it was gone fast, but as we all know, the internet is forever, and as long as even one person grabbed an image of it, it will never die. Trust me, Beyonce is still upset a freeze frame of her won’t go away, although China figured out they can just block websites country wide.

It’s more sinister than that though, as there are long running dreams of liberals the world over, to supplant God then become gods. They are working to map the human genome so they can genetically modify anyone, and ultimately clone anyone they deem worthy of such a gift. Watch The Sixth Day, it’s not one of Arnold’s greatest movies, but it’s this very premise, and that plot should scare you.

Why this is worrying now, as opposed to “just go to your Doctor, you’ll get better” for SARS, MERS, or H1N1, and how the seasonal flu is treated, is this one has been ramped up, even to the point of not allowing Doctors to prescribe a medication with 50 years of use for respiratory viruses (Malaria) to be used now, as it was working well. Even Amy Klobuchar, who was not happy that the President repeated what some Doctors said about Hydroxychloroquine, admitted it likely saved her husband’s life. But don’t take my word for it, here’s a Texan Doctor on the subject.

Or how about a video where a doctor exposes a decades long pattern of people in research not only working on engineering viruses and other pathogens, but also working to hide their work, in some cases even causing a massive death toll, to the point where she was almost jailed, and her career and life has certainly been dragged into the sewer.

It’s very simple, so simple it’s almost a wonder people aren’t waking up to this, but it’s no wonder at all due to the decades of dumbing down education and turning public schools into indoctrination camps. I graduated High School in May of 1995, and am likely one of the last 3 or 4 graduating classes in Texas that actually learned history as it should be taught. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in December 2010, and I can tell you, it was a struggle to not be taken in by the desire of most of the professors to turn people into liberal drones.

The evidence is in plain sight, as Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) liked to say when he had no evidence, but this issue does. How long will it be until they openly demand total obedience, all rights gone, and no more elections, they just rule? I hope sincerely that I don’t see it in my life, or my nephew in his, but that day is coming. And when it does, millions upon millions of Americans will fight back, the only question then will be, who wins?

The series begins

For those who subscribe on YouTube, you’ll know I’ve been talking about a series dedicated to American History, but being me, I want to ensure I prepare. I also lost all of my notes about a while back, so I had to start over. Well, the first video is live tomorrow at 10, the 16th of June, the rest will post, for now, every Wednesday at 10. The first two are the basics of where everything began that led to the US, then it will slow down a bit as the topics become more detailed.

History is being destroyed

Whether by accident or malicious design, the history Cathedral at Notre Dame is slowly crumbling in Paris. Many are posting about how the fire is due to a renovation accident, but I can tell you that this is too soon to say.

I’ve worked as a Firefighter, and there’s a reason an investigator goes in after the building is safe, no one can tell what causes a fire until after, and then only if they are specifically skilled in finding a cause. We’ve seen houses of worship vandalized for a long time in Europe, not coincidentally, since the “refugees” began pouring in, and very recently, a woman attempted to detonate a car bomb at Notre Dame.

Pray for those fighting this fire, for those who live and/or work near it, and just for all involved.

A change to Smoke Signals

While I don’t know how many people regularly read what I post here, I am moving away from this format as I have begun posting to YouTube. The format is very similar, just a change from typing things out here to sitting in front of a camera and talking.

Personally, I prefer the new method, as it is closer to teaching, which I have done in the past, as I studied for several years to become a teacher before I found I am not likely to get that job as I don’t also coach, but that’s something I’ve spoken about already.

So, if you want to continue with me, although I will still post here from time to time, you can find me here, I look forward to seeing you there.

Be careful speaking for God

So, while I don’t use Facebook any more, other than having an account for things like Poker apps or the like, I do have an account, and saw this earlier today.

Naturally, I went back to Bible study as a child, then teen, then adult, and thought about the story of Christ feeding the multitude, and they were not “migrants.” The multitude were citizens of Judea, either Jews living in Israel, or other Roman citizens of that province, and had been following Jesus for a while, as he was teaching and ministering to them. At this point, though, Christ learned of the death of his Cousin, John the Baptist.

Matthew 14:1 is the beginning, where we learn that Herod the Tetrarch had John in prison, and did not want to kill him for fear of making him a martyr or angering the locals, but one of his birthday guest’s daughter requested it after he promised her anything. “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” (Matthew 14:8) so he did. When Christ learned of the death of his Cousin, he retreated for solitude, but the multitude followed him still. Eventually, the Disciples came to him and asked him to send them away to find food. Rather than doing so, Christ performed a miracle, feeding over 5000 with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, once again showing the power of God, and the love of God in supplying food enough for all, and more.

Naturally, when I saw this, I was concerned about a Church misleading people, as there are many instances where Christ specifically made sure to obey the law, or where things we are told are immoral or wrong, and God is used to “prove that,” were specifically ordered in the Bible. Romans 13:1 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” Literally saying to obey the law of the land. I personally choose not to travel to countries where the law is contrary to God’s divine laws, so that I am no subject to those laws at any point in my life. If that comes to Texas, I will follow God’s law.

Now, seeing this, I knew I couldn’t just comment and walk away, as this is a Man of God either purposely spreading this message, or at the very least, allowing someone else to use his Church sign to spread it, so I contacted him with my concerns. Matthew 18:15 tells us that we are to confront each other, and to spread this message, where they claim Christ would violate border laws, when that is not true, is lying, and thus, a sin. I didn’t get angry, I simply voiced my side of the debate, and I pray it will be resolved well, but I can’t control anyone but me.

Naturally, there are many people who still claim Christ would be opposed to the current President’s aim of building a wall on the southern border of the US, but that ignores Nehemiah 3, where Nehemiah is specifically ordered to start the reconstruction of Israel by rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. This is also specifically stated as being for the purpose of protecting the Israeli people.

So at this point the question is a very simple one, do you believe the Bible is God’s word or not. If so, then you must know that the commandments are his commandments, be those the Ten Commandments given to Moses, or those given by Christ to his Disciples. I’ll be the first to admit I backslide (ask my Mother, she’ll tell you that’s true), and that is why, when someone gets upset with me for calling something a sin, I remind them that I am a sinner too, and all they need to do is repent, ask forgiveness, and work to not sin again. None of us are perfect, and none of us will be this side of Heaven, but we can work to be a proper example of Christ while we are here, and that is what we should be doing.

I will support helping those who need help all day long, but when those people have literally marched through multiple countries, with those countries offering jobs, asylum, work visas, and more, only to say “nope, America must obey me,” those are invaders, nothing more. They chose to march to the border of a sovereign nation, to then order said nation to allow them to break the laws of that nation, and now citizens of the US are even joining them in their cries to just ignore our laws. I don’t agree with Mexico keeping Doctors Without Borders from helping, as long as DWB followed the rules in getting to the locations in question, and so on. I don’t have any trouble with Americans sending food, clothing, and more to the people now waiting as their cases are decided. I do, however, have a large bone of contention with those spreading lies. Children are not “ripped from the mother’s arms” at any point. They cannot be housed with adults, and that’s it. They are cared for, fed better than possibly any other time in their lives, and when all is said and done, they’re returned to their parents. Many, though, aren’t coming with their parents, but with strangers who are using them.

The girl in the photo above, rather than as portrayed, crying due to being alone, had been kidnapped weeks earlier by her mother, and dragged from Honduras to the US border. At no time was she separated from her mother, until she was reunited with her father, yet Time Magazine decided to get political, and spread bald faced lies about the situation. This led to protests, and more, and even now that the truth is known, it’s kept quiet as Time doesn’t want to have actually admit their lie was discovered. I personally want a society where, when a news publication/organization is found to have lied, they must give the same amount of coverage/space to their correction, such as time having to do something like this.

If they had to do this every time they were caught lying, sure, we’d see fewer and fewer stories every day, but we’d get real news again, very worth it if you ask me.

Well, my rant has gone on long enough, what do you think about all of this?

A discussion got me thinking

Just a short while ago, I began commenting on a thread about survival prepping. Now, I know you’re thinking ‘Oh great, a prepper post’ but that’s not what this is. By no definition of the word am I a ‘prepper,’ but I’m also not so naive to think nothing will ever happen to drive me away from my home. From natural disasters to EMP weapons to nuclear strike, there are any number of reasons you may be unable to live as you’re accustomed to now for even a short period of time, and that means you could suffer horribly, or just be inconvenienced, based on being prepared for it.

Now, as I said, I am by no means ‘a prepper,’ but I do know a good deal about many topics, many of them easily translatable into off grid living. The big question you want to ask yourself when considering if you could survive in an emergency situation, is what will you need to do so. The simple answers to that question are:

Food, water, shelter, heating or cooling depending on climate, medical supplies, defensive weapons, hunting/fishing supplies, just to name a few items.

These are, by no means, the only things you’ll need, but it’s a start. Think about what your auto emergency kits at Walmart or Target have in them. Flares, a thermal blanket, bandages, etc. All great things, as flares can signal people looking for you, start a fire, or even drive off predators, since wolves or bears generally don’t like fire. Add some paracord, which is almost universally 500lb test, a solar mirror, water purification straw or tablets, fish hooks, a good knife, and you’re well on your way to ensuring you’re warm, mostly dry, fed and hydrated for a long as you can be.

Some of my friends have also suggested a solar USB charger, as in all but an EMP attack, your phone could be invaluable, as it can generally find you on a map, and give directions, or just make a call that might be triangulated to find you. Naturally, in a situation like the movie Red Dawn, you’re going to want to hide and never be found, but as that’s likely such a long shot as to be laughable, it’s not a bad idea. Not to mention, if you’re traveling with small children, just having some music at night can help too.

The point of all of this is very simple, look at your environment, I’m in north Texas, someone in Colorado will need very different supplies, as would someone in Alaska. Look at where you would go in an emergency, what will you need there. What do you already know how to do and what don’t you. Once you know these things, you can add to your supplies and learn skills you need but haven’t mastered yet. Learn CPR, how to apply a tourniquet or otherwise stop bleeding, how to recognize what not to touch or eat, and so on. Even if nothing ever happens, if your water is poisoned like we saw in Michigan, you have something on hand to use. If your friend falls and gashes their leg at a park, you know how to react as someone also calls 911.

The simple message, prepare for the worst, and pray for the best, is one that isn’t a sign of paranoia to live by. You keep a spare tire or a can of Fix a Flat in your car, right? I know people who hide a $20 bill in their car, so if they run out of gas, they have money. They may never use it, but it’s there, and peace of mind is a good thing. All of this said, I am not an expert by any means. I can trap/hunt/fish and cook what I kill, I can find make a sling or stretcher if needed, I can even fight off predators, including other people, to protect myself and my family, and I know that I don’t know all I need, so I look for books and classes, and listen to others.

What would you include in a bugout bag that isn’t a firearm or ammunition? What would you put into an emergency bag that isn’t listed here?

Next verse, same as the first!

It’s only Tuesday and I’m already feeling the urge to scream for multiple reasons, which seems to be the norm for me now. I’ve taught elementary, middle and high school in my adult life, and even dealing with moody teens and making them pay attention to boring lectures is easier than what I do and have to deal with daily these days. Primarily, you see me on Twitter, replying to people who have something so totally wrong as to be laughable, but the fact that so many of them block, mute, or defend their statements proves the same thing, that we have a crisis of education in this country. Recently, Jim Acosta was at a White House press briefing, when he was told by the President that he was done, and to relinquish the microphone, after which he laid hands on a young female intern, which led to the revocation of his hard pass to the White House. A hard pass just allows someone to access the White House without applying each day for a Press Pass, yet CNN and Acosta are suing, alleging that his not having unfettered access to a private residence and someone’s place of work violates the Fifth Amendment, which is insane. The Fifth Amendment does not address the press, access to any location, or anything of the sort. Rather, it protects American Citizens from being prosecuted for certain crimes without a Grand Jury, or when it involves the Military or Militia, double jeopardy and self incrimination. The last line also states that you cannot be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process, or your land taken for public use without fair payment.

It’s very likely that CNN and Acosta will claim the hard pass being revoked is property being taken, but it is not the property of the person using it, it is a privilege, but remains property of the person granting it. Acosta can still, each day, request a Press Pass, but he doesn’t like that, as he believes himself to be the whole of the free press, and above the rules.

With the world watching as Broward County Florida tries to manufacture a DNC win, it’s no surprise that Acosta thinks this, as he’s been praised by those working to steal power, and given power when they hold office, leading to his sense of entitlement. Foreign leaders, ironically those who are presiding over a country being invaded then attacked from within, order the United States to open our borders and allow anyone in without any questions, others tell us our rights must be surrendered, and far more, all the while those who sit in lofty positions, guarded by what they call evil, order us to obey those we did not elect. This must stop, or this country will fall in our lifetime, and this can happen if the crisis of education is addressed. For adults who are woefully ignorant, we must constantly educate them as to their ignorance. Be that by providing resources, such as sending copies of the Constitution, or just other items, which prove them wrong, while children must be educated properly, which involves removing teachers who are not performing, while rewarding those who do. If that happens, the number of children spouting off about things and being wrong then attacking those correcting them will decline, or should. This will have other effects as well. As you may know, I work in Customer Service at the moment, and at least two or three times every day, I’m asked how to do something, and I reply with a detailed list of steps, in almost all cases, numbered and presented on separate lines, only to be asked, basically, “but how do I do that?” If you were asked how to watch a movie on a computer, and replied with

1 – Turn on the computer
2 – Open Google Chrome
3 – Enter www.netflix.com in the address bar and press enter
4 – Log in
5 – Find the preferred movie by searching or clicking the tile on the main website
6 – click the icon at bottom right to enter full screen if desired
7 – Enjoy your movie

What would you say if asked, “OK, but how do I watch a movie online?” This scenario is also why I say I won’t be surprised to see, in my lifetime, a store such as Best Buy sued for not serving someone lunch, or someone sue a business because they were arrested for public indecency because they asked where the restrooms are, are told they’re in the back, then the person goes outside and urinates on the parking lot, then claims “they told me the wrong place!” Yes, I know these are extreme and insane scenarios, but the entitlement mentality is so pervasive, it really is only a matter of time before someone truly believes they have a right to be right, and when Best Buy won’t cook them a steak, or when they decide “nope, the parking lot is the toilet” and are told they’re wrong, they believe it’s an actual attack on their person. You only need to look at social media to see the beginnings of this. Saturday afternoon, I found a story about Sarah Silverman saying she’s “surprised Trump doesn’t make her wear a Star of David.” Naturally, I called her out for her idiocy, then I was told I must delete that tweet, which “engaged in targeted harassment” or I could not use Twitter any more. When I challenged this with Twitter, they simply deleted it for me then said I had to wait 13 hours before I could use Twitter again. We are now firmly into the world where liberals believe being told they’re wrong is “illegal” or “racism” or “sexism,” and Conservatives are hit daily with suspensions or bans for doing that. David Hogg (from Parkland) regularly just outright lies about someone or something, and when he’s corrected, he cries that he’s being bullied. Emma Gonzalez admitted she took part in bullying Cruz, who later attacked the school, then she cries about “being bullied” by those who ask her why she felt it was OK to bully someone.

We need a strong dose of reality and tough love or this country is doomed. Children caught lying about anything must be called out, and when they cry that you’re bullying them, you need to stand firm and remind them that “proving you wrong is not bullying, it’s using the truth.” When they cry about “their truth” reply with “well, my truth is that there is only the truth, and that means you’re still wrong.” Use their crap against them, don’t back down, because if we don’t stand firm and fight for what’s right, we will lose it all.

The Blame Game

For just over two years, we’ve heard nothing but cries of despair every time Congress or the President do anything. Liberals demand that this official or that be impeached, or that they recuse themselves from this or that, or in some other way, obey the party that lost the 2016 election. This is, however, not a new phenomenon. The 2000 election saw many similar things, with Democrats asking why George W Bush wasn’t appointing more Democrats to his cabinet to “keep an eye on him.” The question really, for me, is why we must obey only one party, no matter how the election goes? The answer, surprisingly, is actually fairly simple, entitlement. For just over twenty years, the idea of hard work and earning something has been under assault and we’re very close to a time when people will openly call for someone’s arrest, or defend their act of murder, because someone “denied their right” to be given money without working. Personally, I’ve been waiting to hear about one of the “protesters” in an “anti-fascist” group defending their killing of a conservative because they were “a bot” or “assaulted them” by speaking.
The mid 1990’s is where we see the shift begin that has led us to this point. Students prior to this time were told they must work hard, must study, and if they don’t they will fail and more. Now, students were never told they’d failed, they were just told “you did your best,” or later that it’s “their truth” and they should embrace it. And today, we have high school graduates who truly believe they have rights others do not, and rights others exercise which they don’t like can “just be changed” because they want to. Look again to 2016, and the multiple calls for the Electoral College to “just be done away with,” then the reactions when they were told it would take a Constitutional Amendment, which is not likely to happen. I personally was told more than once that I should be put in jail for hate speech when I told people they can’t “just change” the Constitution. I’ve been told people would come shoot me with my own pistol for not demonizing the NRA, and even had one lie and say I’d threatened him when I reported his threat to my life to the Police. I used to pity these people, now I just ignore them, but they still exist, and are causing more harm than good to society.

I personally don’t care what you do with your life, at least not until your life starts to negatively impact mine. Look at the movement for “LGBTQ rights,” and look specifically at the “rights” they say they are being denied. Your rights are not specific to one group, they are for all American citizens, or at least were. I remember signs in multiple businesses where I grew up that said “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, at any time, with or without explanation” and no one batted an eye, yet today we’re told that you can’t refuse to serve certain groups, while business owners in those groups go on vulgar tirades and forcibly eject others from their businesses, and nothing happens. A baker, who did not refuse to sell, just to make a special order, was all but destroyed until a court finally ruled that special orders are not protected by anything, while a coffee shop owner, who was not asked to do anything special, chases Christians out of his business while spewing profanities, and nothing happens. Why? Because those in power in Washington at the time want to destroy certain actual rights, and use “rights” that don’t exist to do it, playing The Blame Game the entire time. You hear that it’s the Church’s fault that a homosexual was denied a job, not their total lack of qualifications. Others scream it’s the NRA’s fault that a criminal broke multiple laws and shot people, not the criminal who broke multiple laws. You hear it’s the evil AR-15 that caused a mass shooting, not the person using it, but you never hear about pistol or shotgun control needed, because the goal is the eventual disarming of Americans, and those doing it know they must have a scapegoat to start the ball rolling, and they’ve chose the AR-15 for that role.

It’s all very simple, they know they can’t come right out and say “ban all Christian churches” or “give up all of your guns,” as they know they’d be laughed off the stage then removed from office. If, however, they spend years demonizing what they hate, they can slowly turn a country against it as well, and then people will vote to oppress others. Tim Tebow knelt after a scoring drive to thank God as per his faith, and was all but beaten with clubs as he ran from the field to resign, but Colin Kaepernick kneels to “protest oppression” while making millions, and people cheer. Why is it OK to protest “oppression” he can’t prove, but not for someone to openly exercise their actual First Amendment rights? The answer is simple, praying shows Christians believe in a higher power than politicians, “protesting” allows politicians to become a “higher power” and “fight for equality” as they strip rights from all they can.

The only question left is where this will all end. Given their way, many politicians would have Americans taxed at levels that would make past socialist tyrants gasp in envy, to pay for “health care” that won’t work, and standing in line to hopefully get some food for the day, rather than spending their earnings as they wish. Orwell warned of a society like this in 1984, and despite his and others’ warnings, we are in a jet powered handcart to the hell they described. We’re still roughly split 50/50, with half of the country still fighting against an Orwellian state, but we’re just at a stalemate, and sadly, losing people faster than those we’re fighting to stop. Will you go quietly into the dark of Orwellian control, or will you stand and say, as Patrick Henry did so many years ago, Give me liberty or give me death? I know which I choose.
