How to identify REAL misinformation…

AZ responded to a comment on one of my articles. I didn’t allow his comment for several reasons. But let’s explore his comment so we can know how to spot true, actual, and real “misinformation.”

 

AZ’s comment:

“SO you don’t think FOREIGN MILITARY ARE COMING IN,well you are wrong,I’ve talked to RUSSIAN SPECIAL FORCES AT WALMART,I’VE TALKED TO CHINESE MILITARY COMMANDERS,who said they were traveling around COLORADO looking to see what towns they wanted to be in charge of,AND THE UN MILITARY are coming in by the BUS LOAD from US MILITARY BASES ALL OVER AMERICA,and OH YES I’VE talked to them to,they said we are here to kill stupid americans,well there won’t be any shortage of them,THEIR ARRIVING IN GUTTED OLD MOTORHOMES,the interior was removed and bench seats installed,40-50 in every one,YOU KNOW you best wake up,AMERICA HASN’T TOTALY ENDED,but soon it will have,WHEN THE ATTACK BEGINS,it’ll be a BLOODBATH ,the US MILITARY will be coming DOOR TO DOOR,taking GUNS,BIBLES AND ANY GOLD OR SILVER THEY CAN FIND,That little tid bit came from a NAVY SEAL….”

So let’s get into his statement and figure out what is real and what is not by asking some logical questions. No, I am not going to talk about his “big picture” at all. We will examine the details and then make a judgement call on his big picture at the end.

  1. I’ve talked to RUSSIAN SPECIAL FORCES AT WALMART.”
    1. What were Russian Special Forces Operators (RSFO) doing at Walmart?
    2. How did he spot (RSFO) at Walmart?
    3. And if they were there and he spotted them, why would they talk to him?
    4. And if they talked to him, why would they reveal their mission to him?
  2. I’VE TALKED TO CHINESE MILITARY COMMANDERS”
    1. What special connection(s) does he have to even know Chinese military commanders?
    2. And if he does know Chinese military commanders, why would they reveal their secret mission to him?
  3. UN MILITARY are coming in by the BUS LOAD from US MILITARY BASES ALL OVER AMERICA”
    1. Where are the credible pictures of the busses full of UN troops?
    2. Why aren’t there credible reports of busloads of UN troops on, or leaving, military bases all over America?
  4. I’VE talked to them to,they said we are here to kill stupid americans”
    1. How did he spot them, why did he talk to them, why did they reveal their mission to him, why didn’t they kill him first to prevent them from being exposed? Or at least detain him to prevent revealing their presence and mission?
  5. WHEN THE ATTACK BEGINS,it’ll be a BLOODBATH ,the US MILITARY will be coming DOOR TO DOOR,taking GUNS,BIBLES AND ANY GOLD OR SILVER THEY CAN FIND,That little tid bit came from a NAVY SEAL”
    1. How does he know a Navy SEAL?
    2. Why would a Navy Seal reveal the most top secret of mission information to him?

So, when you look at his statements and begin to ask logical and realistic questions concerning his statements what do you see? Is there a pattern?

Here’s what I say:

  1. I doubt RSFO troops would be in Walmart and be recognizable. They would either not be in Walmart at all or would at least be sufficiently trained to not be noticed. Remember, RSFO troops are the Russian equivalent to our Delta operators.
  2. If a person went up to a RSFO trooper there is absolutely no way they would just stand there openly talking to a stranger about their secret mission to kill Americans
  3. I doubt he knows any Chinese person outside of a Panda Express let alone knowing a Chinese military commander. And if he happened to talk with a Chinese military commander, that commander would not reveal their secret mission to kill Americans.
  4. If there were large quantities of UN troops on military bases, someone would notice and report. If those busloads of UN troops were leaving American military bases someone would notice and report. There has not been a single credible report, let alone multiple reports, of any such activity. If he did find one of these UN troopers, they would not speak to him about their mission to kill Americans.
  5. If he actually does know a Navy SEAL, that SEAL would not reveal top secret information of a major mission against US citizens.

So, when you look at his statements, ask the logical and realistic questions, and then answer those questions objectively and realistically…his statement is pure fantasy.

Well, there is one other option…he is making those statements to purposely create chaos and havoc, or shape opinion of easily influenced people for nefarious purposes.

Whatever the case, this person is writing complete and total misinformation to the degree of absurdity.

Now, and especially in the near future, you must be able to recognize and analyze all information. You must be able to determine whether information is true or not. And even more important…recognize the people who are creating and/or spreading that misinformation and why.

If you fail to do so…you have no, or poor, Situational Awareness…and that could prove fatal to you and/or your family, your congregation, or your community.

Who is US Surgeon General Vivek Hallegere Murthy?

Well, knowing that information is vital in understanding what Murthy did on the 14th of July and why…and under the direction of whom.

Once you know a little about his background the answers to all of those questions, what/why/whom, become painfully obvious…and even far more sinister than you might have previously thought. I leave conclusions up to you but I will share my opinion at the end.

Easy Murthy stuff first:

  • He born in England
  • His parents born in India
  • He moved to America in 1980, age of 3, along with his family
  • Attended all the best Ivory League schools…Harvard, Yale, etc.
  • Did his medical training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, two of the most prestigious medical facilities in the world

Sounds almost dream-like, like someone was looking out for him…a mentor guiding him through life.

And now it gets interesting…Murthy also earned an MBA from Yale School of Management. And while working on his MBA he received a fellowship from The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans. And as you are now probably guessing…Paul Soros is the older brother of George Soros. And yes…that George Soros. The one who is arguably one of the most evil men that has walked the earth in the last 100 years. Soros worked with Nazis to round up Jews for the death camps, financially overthrown a couple European countries, etc.  But most of all…the Soros family has funded the most radical and extreme of progressive/liberal causes the world has ever known. AND FYI…the Soviets had information that Paul Soros was actually a Nazi SS officer. Which, if true, would make sense since his brother George Soros worked closely with the Nazi SS.

And so it begins…the link of Murthy to extremism and radicalism the likes the world has never known. But, it gets worse.

One of Murthy’s major life accomplishment is this…he co-founded and served as President of “Doctors for Obama” which became “Doctors for America”. And it is important to note that yes, that Obama…the one that in his own words stated he was a racist. But worse yet…Obama from his own mouth openly espoused Marxist ideology and promoted the same.

He did such a good job for Obama, advocating for socialized medicine and promoting ObamaCare, that Obama appointed him as US Surgeon General during his term as President.

And of course since Biden is little more than a stooge…Murthy got a second go at the post of US Surgeon General. And we see that Murthy is wasting no time in continuing to promote socialist/marxist and authoritarian principles and ideals. And thus he marches on to subjugate the American people even more.

Doesn’t this all gets very interesting when you connect the dots?

So here is my opinion on who US Surgeon General Vivek Hallegere Murthy really is…

  1. He is a globalist, elitist, and raised to be part of the ruling class.
  2. He is very intelligent and an successful activist.
  3. He has close personal and professional ties to the most radical and extremist elements in the world.
  4. Some of the most evil people in the world believe in him and have openly supported him.
  5. He is a dedicated socialist/Marxist.
  6. And most of all…he is a true believer in authoritarianism and dedicated to the implementation of such in the USA.

And all of that makes him a very dangerous man. Do not discount what he is capable of. And most of all…Know who is running our country!

EXTREME DANGER !

Three of the most significant indicators/signs of an authoritarian/totalitarian regime is the controlling of media, promoting government propaganda, and suppressing voices of opposition.

A person only needs look to countries such as the former Soviet Union, current Russia, China, and North Korea to see the most fully implemented examples of such behavior. And the European Union countries are examples of almost fully implemented authoritarian media controls. But here in the USA the First Amendment has protected, for the most part, our right to free speech for over 230 years…until now.

Let’s be honest…the media has been earnestly bullied and attacked since the Nixon years. And since Clinton the effort to transform the media into an extension of the government propaganda arm has become serious and focused. Every President since Nixon has gone after the media and the people therein…some Presidents with gusto, others more subtly. And for the most part, the media has complied and become little more than shills for the US federal government.

And to be fair, there are a couple major media outlets that still maintain some margin of objectivity and fairness in reporting. However, and unfortunately, they tend to be conservative agenda driven organizations. And being such, almost exclusively promote a conservative agenda vs true objectivity.

The US government has for the most part been discreet, subtle, and used subterfuge to bring the media into compliance. However, they are not above using threats, intimidation, and the legal system to bring the most wayward of media under their control. The most recent example is the NSA’s spying on Tucker Carlson. But Carlson is not alone…the NSA has been well-documented to be spying on all of us. But government spying on media personnel is especially troublesome.  And for this article I won’t even begin to discuss the truly troubling programs the FBI has and is using against specific journalists.

Now to my point…On July 14th, 2021 the US Government went from subtle anti-free speech program towards full blown censorship. On 7/14 the US Surgeon General released a report outlining how big technology companies, especially social media platforms, are to censor any dissenting speech that falls outside of federal government approval. While stopping short of criminalizing dissenting speech, the government declared exactly how big-tech was to use all methods at its disposal to silence dissension.

This is no small development…actually, it is the largest single outright blatant attack on the US Constitution and Bill of Rights that I can remember in my lifetime. This is a huge development, although not a surprise at all for those who have been reading my website for even a few months.

I have been writing extensively about the federal government’s efforts to destroy the Constitution for a very long time. I have outlined how big-tech was nothing more a tool of the US government, both working towards the same goal. This latest move is simply a blatant public release of the goal the federal government of the United States, with the assistance of big-tech, is moving us towards. And that goal…a solid and unchallengeable authoritarian/totalitarian state.

The most dangerous specifics in the policy statement:

  1. Page #11 –
    1. All media companies and journalism schools are to train personnel to identify any information source that doesn’t conform to federal government “truth.”
    2. Use only information, including graphics, that will keep public opinion in-line with what information the federal government is promoting.
  2. Page #12 –
    1. Change their technology software and hardware to ensure that any “misinformation” is identified and suppressed.
    2. Identify all users who dissent from federal government propaganda and make that information available to all government personnel, government compliant media sources, and government approved academic personnel.
    3. Penalize anyone and everyone who the federal government has identified as “repeat offenders” of misinformation.
    4. Identify misinformation and move to counter that content with an overwhelming amount of content that is compliant with federal government propaganda.
    5. Promote media sources of complaint information over dissenting sources.
    6. Protect cooperative federal government media sources from any information that would challenge or discredit them.
  3. Page #14 –
    1. The promotion of extensive private funding towards any and all organizations that promotes federal government propaganda.
  4. Page #15 –
    1. Directs all levels of government to comply with the federal government propaganda promotion program, including the promotion of all compliant sources and the penalization of all dissenting speech and sources.

Yes, there are more statement points to be made that prove beyond even a shadow of a doubt that the US government is now actively, publicly, blatantly, and seriously going public in their program to  crush any dissenting speech. Meaning…the US Government is now openly suppressing/eliminating free speech. Free Speech…the most fundamental of God-given rights guaranteed to us under the Bill of Rights.

I have written repeatedly that from the perspective of the US Government, and its renegade agencies (FBI, NSA, CIA, DIA, DHS, etc.), the US Constitution is dead and gone. Period!

The only saving of the US Constitution will come from dedicated and committed people willing to give all to defend its principles.

The US Government, all branches, have no desire whatsoever to uphold the Constitution. That has been made clear by decades of eliminating rights, freedoms, and liberties. Till now they have been the evil lurking and working in the shadows…but that has now changed. They have now moved into the full light of day…unafraid of showing their evil for exactly what it is!

I want to state clearly, and hear me clearly… on the 14th of July, 2021 the US Federal Government, under the direction of an authoritarian Biden/Harris regime, made it public that they are now working openly to eliminate ALL rights that have been previously guaranteed under the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And they started with the most fundamental and the most needed right of all…Free Speech.

This latest version of an authoritarian regime is the most extreme in philosophy and action than anything previously seen in the USA. This is the most major and significant -and dangerous- step ever taken in modern times to subjugate the citizens of the US to the point of no return.

For those of you who are aware and informed…this is the FULL implementation of “1984”… make no doubt about it.

Where do they go from here? I am not 100% sure…but it will become obvious fairly soon. This bold step towards the destruction of the last vestiges of the US Constitution is a major mile post…one that will be followed up rather quickly by those dark and evil powers that now control every aspect of the US federal government.

Now, one more extremely disturbing point…I am sure you are aware, but let me remind you…The US Surgeon General holds the rank of Vice-Admiral. Yup, that means they are a member of the 8 branches of the armed/uniformed services of the United States of America.

I told you earlier this year that we have lost the military…this recent move makes it crystal clear that the US uniformed services no longer honors their oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Those organizations are now rogue…and working openly against US citizens.

Once again…YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

Take such actions to prepare yourself, your family, your congregations, and your communities against further implementation of authoritarianism. Failure to act now ensures you will have to comply with their demands in the future…and become nothing more than sheeple.

Head’s Up! : The Economy

A senior economist at one of the oldest conservative think tanks in America and a former International Monetary Fund economist just declared that “America’s inflation is beginning to resemble a Latin American country.” He also stated “The U.S. is in a very bad position from a long-term point of view. I don’t see how this can end well when we’re running [annual] budget deficits something like 15 percent of GDP.” He then went on to say, “We are seeing the money supply now growing well over 20 percent year-over-year.”

Two Wall Street reporters wrote recently that “The pandemic has pushed global government debt to the highest level since World War II, surpassing the world’s annual economic output.” Yes, that means that the world debt to world GDP is over 100%!! That is very, very dangerous territory.

Also only a couple days ago two more WSJ reports wrote that America is entering a transitional phase of higher prices, higher inflation, and higher interest rates that we’ve had in decades and decades. Now, there are two points that I want to bring out; 1) I was around on those “decades” that they are referring to…mortgage interest rates were in the teens to twenties and credit card rates were 20 – 40%, 2) did you read the word “transitional” in that statement? Their words not mine. Our economy is transitioning…and you know what it is transitioning into…and it is bad, very, very bad.

The world economy is about to really, really suck. In a nut shell emerging countries went heavily into debt…$86trillion that we know about. And that debt is at astonishingly low interest rates thank to the Federal Reserve and other central banks (foreign government federal reserves). Now that the Fed and central banks are starting to raise interest rates with discussion of notably higher interest rates to curb inflation…well, most (if not all) of those emerging countries will not be able to refinance their current debt debt and no means to payoff the debt.

When that occurs those countries go into default. When they go into default then there is a run on that country’s economy. And when that occurs…1) they go bankrupt and the loss of those trillions of debt hit investors like they’ve never been hit before, 2) the US and other G7 countries will have to loan them more money at special rates…meaning that the G7 countries print more money…meaning that global inflation gets even worse.

And then there is Deutsche Bank…one of the largest banks in the world…a favorite of the global ruling elite. They consist of private banking, corporate banking, investment banking, and asset management. Their total assets…in the multiple of $trillions!! And who happens to be the #1 shareholder? BlackRock. And just FYI…BlackRock is the largest asset manager in the US…and handles the investments of federal employees. Well, what did Deutsche Bank have to say that caught my attention?

On June 10th they issued a “dire economic warning for America”, “…we could be on the brink of excruciating economic pain.” They added statements such as “…the very role of government in the economy, is undergoing its biggest shift in direction in 40 years” “We have seen this happen many times over the past century. From Weimar Germany to present-day Venezuela, massive money printing never works and always spurs out-of-control inflation.”

Once again, two key points; 1) they clearly intimated that we could be looking at a Weimar Republic collapse situation…that lead to the rise of Hitler, 2) they also stated that the federal government’s role in the economy is shifting…transitioning.

Then again on the 14th, “Further disregarding inflation will push the global economy to a major crisis, according to the latest report issued by Deutsche Bank economists who point the finger at the US money-printing policies.” “By the end of this year [2021], we will have twice the number of dollars in circulation compared to 2019.” “Inflation is a construct of Wall Street and endless money printing to feed the beast. Without Wall Street, there would be next to no inflation because the actual market of producers and consumers of goods and materials would set the price.”

As if you don’t already know…the US economy is collapsing. No, it hasn’t collapsed…it is collapsing. And while many call it inflation I clearly and unequivocally claim it is devaluation…the US dollar becoming less valuable.

You must prepare now for the economic collapse. I outlined some things you should consider <click here>

If you want to read the clarity of the economic situation <click here to read>

Now, if you have been paying attention to my guidance over the years you’ve learned to ask two questions whenever you are presented with information. 1) Who gains money?, 2) Who gains  power?

So you have one of the largest banks (Deutsche Bank) in the world release a warning about the US economy and global inflation…and predicting the collapse of the US as we know it. Then you have one of the largest financial media outlets (Wall Street Journal) doing virtually the same thing. And of course a world renown conservative economist doing the same. And they’ve done it within the last month. Huummmm……..

Now, you ask yourself those questions in regards to the information they released; 1) Who gains  money?, 2) Who gains power? But, remember…it will be the “actions” of people acting on that information that is important when considering the questions.

But, there was a somewhat hidden tidbit of consistent information woven in all that information…government role/involvement and transition. And therein lies a HUGE key to all of this.

But, the most important piece of information…each warned of a collapse. And if you listen to Deutsche Bank who was around at the time of Germany’s collapse and the rise of Hitler…well, they just might have a little experience under their belt in that arena. Considering they directly equated it to our situation today…something to consider…seriously consider.

All of that is just 4 short years. Then a world war 6 years after that. Nine years…from start…to hell itself.

Now, hear me…hear me clearly…I’ve been warning my website readers for years and years exactly what has been and is going on. None of this should be any surprise. But, here is the rub…

YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO PROTECT YOU & YOUR FAMILY OR ALL OF MY WARNINGS ARE WORTHLESS !!!

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

note: This is a reprint of another author’s article. It is extremely informative. I believe it is a must read for you if you have any desire to combat Marxism, Socialism, racism, and the continued overthrow of the United States of America.


Christopher F. Rufo
Founder and Director, Battlefront


Christopher F. Rufo is founder and director of Battlefront, a public policy research center. He is a graduate of Georgetown University and a former Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy. As executive director at the Documentary Foundation, he has directed four films for PBS, including most recently America Lost, which explores life in Youngstown, Ohio, Memphis, Tennessee, and Stockton, California. He is also a contributing editor of City Journal, where he covers topics including critical race theory, homelessness, addiction, and crime.


Critical race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it—and of those who have, many don’t understand it. It’s time for this to change. We need to know what it is so we can know how to fight it.

In explaining critical race theory, it helps to begin with a brief history of Marxism. Originally, the Marxist Left built its political program on the theory of class conflict. Marx believed that the primary characteristic of industrial societies was the imbalance of power between capitalists and workers. The solution to that imbalance, according to Marx, was revolution: the workers would eventually gain consciousness of their plight, seize the means of production, overthrow the capitalist class, and usher in a new socialist society.

During the 20th century, a number of regimes underwent Marxist-style revolutions, and each ended in disaster. Socialist governments in the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, Cuba, and elsewhere racked up a body count of nearly 100 million of their own people. They are remembered for their gulags, show trials, executions, and mass starvations. In practice, Marx’s ideas unleashed man’s darkest brutalities.

By the mid-1960s, Marxist intellectuals in the West had begun to acknowledge these failures. They recoiled at revelations of Soviet atrocities and came to realize that workers’ revolutions would never occur in Western Europe or the United States, where there were large middle classes and rapidly improving standards of living. Americans in particular had never developed a sense of class consciousness or class division. Most Americans believed in the American dream—the idea that they could transcend their origins through education, hard work, and good citizenship.

But rather than abandon their Leftist political project, Marxist scholars in the West simply adapted their revolutionary theory to the social and racial unrest of the 1960s. Abandoning Marx’s economic dialectic of capitalists and workers, they substituted race for class and sought to create a revolutionary coalition of the dispossessed based on racial and ethnic categories.

Fortunately, the early proponents of this revolutionary coalition in the U.S. lost out in the 1960s to the civil rights movement, which sought instead the fulfillment of the American promise of freedom and equality under the law. Americans preferred the idea of improving their country to that of overthrowing it. The vision of Martin Luther King, Jr., President Johnson’s pursuit of the Great Society, and the restoration of law and order promised by President Nixon in his 1968 campaign defined the post-1960s American political consensus.

But the radical Left has proved resilient and enduring—which is where critical race theory comes in.

WHAT IT IS

Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula.

There are a series of euphemisms deployed by its supporters to describe critical race theory, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion,” and “culturally responsive teaching.” Critical race theorists, masters of language construction, realize that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell. Equity, on the other hand, sounds non-threatening and is easily confused with the American principle of equality. But the distinction is vast and important. Indeed, equality—the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, defended in the Civil War, and codified into law with the 14th and 15th Amendments, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965—is explicitly rejected by critical race theorists. To them, equality represents “mere nondiscrimination” and provides “camouflage” for white supremacy, patriarchy, and oppression.

In contrast to equality, equity as defined and promoted by critical race theorists is little more than reformulated Marxism. In the name of equity, UCLA Law Professor and critical race theorist Cheryl Harris has proposed suspending private property rights, seizing land and wealth and redistributing them along racial lines. Critical race guru Ibram X. Kendi, who directs the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, has proposed the creation of a federal Department of Antiracism. This department would be independent of (i.e., unaccountable to) the elected branches of government, and would have the power to nullify, veto, or abolish any law at any level of government and curtail the speech of political leaders and others who are deemed insufficiently “antiracist.”

One practical result of the creation of such a department would be the overthrow of capitalism, since according to Kendi, “In order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anti-capitalist.” In other words, identity is the means and Marxism is the end.

An equity-based form of government would mean the end not only of private property, but also of individual rights, equality under the law, federalism, and freedom of speech. These would be replaced by race-based redistribution of wealth, group-based rights, active discrimination, and omnipotent bureaucratic authority. Historically, the accusation of “anti-Americanism” has been overused. But in this case, it’s not a matter of interpretation—critical race theory prescribes a revolutionary program that would overturn the principles of the Declaration and destroy the remaining structure of the Constitution.

HOW IT WORKS

What does critical race theory look like in practice? Last year, I authored a series of reports focused on critical race theory in the federal government. The FBI was holding workshops on intersectionality theory. The Department of Homeland Security was telling white employees they were committing “microinequities” and had been “socialized into oppressor roles.” The Treasury Department held a training session telling staff members that “virtually all white people contribute to racism” and that they must convert “everyone in the federal government” to the ideology of “antiracism.” And the Sandia National Laboratories, which designs America’s nuclear arsenal, sent white male executives to a three-day reeducation camp, where they were told that “white male culture” was analogous to the “KKK,” “white supremacists,” and “mass killings.” The executives were then forced to renounce their “white male privilege” and write letters of apology to fictitious women and people of color.

This year, I produced another series of reports focused on critical race theory in education. In Cupertino, California, an elementary school forced first-graders to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities, and rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.” In Springfield, Missouri, a middle school forced teachers to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix,” based on the idea that straight, white, English-speaking, Christian males are members of the oppressor class and must atone for their privilege and “covert white supremacy.” In Philadelphia, an elementary school forced fifth-graders to celebrate “Black communism” and simulate a Black Power rally to free 1960s radical Angela Davis from prison, where she had once been held on charges of murder. And in Seattle, the school district told white teachers that they are guilty of “spirit murder” against black children and must “bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgement of [their] thieved inheritance.”

I’m just one investigative journalist, but I’ve developed a database of more than 1,000 of these stories. When I say that critical race theory is becoming the operating ideology of our public institutions, it is not an exaggeration—from the universities to bureaucracies to k-12 school systems, critical race theory has permeated the collective intelligence and decision-making process of American government, with no sign of slowing down.

This is a revolutionary change. When originally established, these government institutions were presented as neutral, technocratic, and oriented towards broadly-held perceptions of the public good. Today, under the increasing sway of critical race theory and related ideologies, they are being turned against the American people. This isn’t limited to the permanent bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., but is true as well of institutions in the states, even in red states, and it is spreading to county public health departments, small Midwestern school districts, and more. This ideology will not stop until it has devoured all of our institutions.

FUTILE RESISTANCE

Thus far, attempts to halt the encroachment of critical race theory have been ineffective. There are a number of reasons for this.

First, too many Americans have developed an acute fear of speaking up about social and political issues, especially those involving race. According to a recent Gallup poll, 77 percent of conservatives are afraid to share their political beliefs publicly. Worried about getting mobbed on social media, fired from their jobs, or worse, they remain quiet, largely ceding the public debate to those pushing these anti-American ideologies. Consequently, the institutions themselves become monocultures: dogmatic, suspicious, and hostile to a diversity of opinion. Conservatives in both the federal government and public school systems have told me that their “equity and inclusion” departments serve as political offices, searching for and stamping out any dissent from the official orthodoxy.

Second, critical race theorists have constructed their argument like a mousetrap. Disagreement with their program becomes irrefutable evidence of a dissenter’s “white fragility,” “unconscious bias,” or “internalized white supremacy.” I’ve seen this projection of false consciousness on their opponents play out dozens of times in my reporting. Diversity trainers will make an outrageous claim—such as “all whites are intrinsically oppressors” or “white teachers are guilty of spirit murdering black children”—and then when confronted with disagreement, they adopt a patronizing tone and explain that participants who feel “defensiveness” or “anger” are reacting out of guilt and shame. Dissenters are instructed to remain silent, “lean into the discomfort,” and accept their “complicity in white supremacy.”

Third, Americans across the political spectrum have failed to separate the premise of critical race theory from its conclusion. Its premise—that American history includes slavery and other injustices, and that we should examine and learn from that history—is undeniable. But its revolutionary conclusion—that America was founded on and defined by racism and that our founding principles, our Constitution, and our way of life should be overthrown—does not rightly, much less necessarily, follow.

Fourth and finally, the writers and activists who have had the courage to speak out against critical race theory have tended to address it on the theoretical level, pointing out the theory’s logical contradictions and dishonest account of history. These criticisms are worthy and good, but they move the debate into the academic realm, which is friendly terrain for proponents of critical race theory. They fail to force defenders of this revolutionary ideology to defend the practical consequences of their ideas in the realm of politics.

POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT

No longer simply an academic matter, critical race theory has become a tool of political power. To borrow a phrase from the Marxist theoretician Antonio Gramsci, it is fast achieving “cultural hegemony” in America’s public institutions. More and more, it is driving the vast machinery of the state and society. If we want to succeed in opposing it, we must address it politically at every level.

Critical race theorists must be confronted with and forced to speak to the facts. Do they support public schools separating first-graders into groups of “oppressors” and “oppressed”? Do they support mandatory curricula teaching that “all white people play a part in perpetuating systemic racism”? Do they support public schools instructing white parents to become “white traitors” and advocate for “white abolition”? Do they want those who work in government to be required to undergo this kind of reeducation? How about managers and workers in corporate America? How about the men and women in our military? How about every one of us?

There are three parts to a successful strategy to defeat the forces of critical race theory: governmental action, grassroots mobilization, and an appeal to principle.

We already see examples of governmental action. Last year, one of my reports led President Trump to issue an executive order banning critical race theory-based training programs in the federal government. President Biden rescinded this order on his first day in office, but it provides a model for governors and municipal leaders to follow. This year, several state legislatures have introduced bills to achieve the same goal: preventing public institutions from conducting programs that stereotype, scapegoat, or demean people on the basis of race. And I have organized a coalition of attorneys to file lawsuits against schools and government agencies that impose critical race theory-based programs on grounds of the First Amendment (which protects citizens from compelled speech), the Fourteenth Amendment (which provides equal protection under the law), and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (which prohibits public institutions from discriminating on the basis of race).

On the grassroots level, a multiracial and bipartisan coalition is emerging to do battle against critical race theory. Parents are mobilizing against racially divisive curricula in public schools and employees are increasingly speaking out against Orwellian reeducation in the workplace. When they see what is happening, Americans are naturally outraged that critical race theory promotes three ideas—race essentialism, collective guilt, and neo-segregation—which violate the basic principles of equality and justice. Anecdotally, many Chinese-Americans have told me that having survived the Cultural Revolution in their former country, they refuse to let the same thing happen here. 

In terms of principles, we need to employ our own moral language rather than allow ourselves to be confined by the categories of critical race theory. For example, we often find ourselves debating “diversity.” Diversity as most of us understand it is generally good, all things being equal, but it is of secondary value. We should be talking about and aiming at excellence, a common standard that challenges people of all backgrounds to achieve their potential. On the scale of desirable ends, excellence beats diversity every time.

Similarly, in addition to pointing out the dishonesty of the historical narrative on which critical race theory is predicated, we must promote the true story of America—a story that is honest about injustices in American history, but that places them in the context of our nation’s high ideals and the progress we have made towards realizing them. Genuine American history is rich with stories of achievements and sacrifices that will move the hearts of Americans—in stark contrast to the grim and pessimistic narrative pressed by critical race theorists.

Above all, we must have courage—the fundamental virtue required in our time. Courage to stand and speak the truth. Courage to withstand epithets. Courage to face the mob. Courage to shrug off the scorn of the elites. When enough of us overcome the fear that currently prevents so many from speaking out, the hold of critical race theory will begin to slip. And courage begets courage. It’s easy to stop a lone dissenter; it’s much harder to stop 10, 20, 100, 1,000, 1,000,000, or more who stand up together for the principles of America.

Truth and justice are on our side. If we can muster the courage, we will win.

4th of July – Independence Day 2021

4th-0note: While this article has been posted in previous years, I am posting it again this year because it applies…maybe even more so. And yes, I tried to do some more editing to make it read easier and flow better…and apply even more to our current 2021 situation in America.

2021 note: I would like you to seriously consider where your principles stand; your commitment to the morals. ethics, and concepts as outlined by the Declaration of Independence. In 2020/2021 we’ve seen two tragic things; 1) a huge overstep of all levels of government to control the citizens of this great country, 2) a monumental compliance of sheeple that should shake you to your very core. As we celebrate this holiday please take time to consider just how committed you are to the; 1) Republic (USA), 2) true freedom and the responsibility that goes with it, 3) the Declaration of Independence, 4) your willingness to act. Think about this…All the food and water storage in the world won’t mean a thing without a core set of principles that guide you and your family.

Independence Day (a.k.a. 4th of July) historically July 4th is the day for celebrating declaring independence from Great Britain. However, on July 2, 1776 the American Revolution leadership declared the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain after the American Congress had voted to do so. And the 4th is when they  actually signed the document. So the 4th of July is actually more about the Declaration of Independence becoming our first American historical document. For me…I would love to celebrate the 2nd – the 4th of July !!

And it is good to remember, open warfare had broken out a year earlier between the tyrannical British government military and American freedom fighters.

So if this holiday, the 4th of July – Independence Day, is all about 4th-1declaring independence and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. What is the Declaration of Independence all about?

4th-2Well, just take the first 18 words of the actual document –

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands…”

The Declaration of Independence was all about dissolving the tyrannical government that had been imposed upon Americans by the British ruling class. In other words, the Americans were fed-up with the governmental tyranny they lived under and were finally doing something really serious about it. The Declaration of Independence was an explanation of what the Americans were doing and why.

But you also have to understand by what “authority” they felt they had to take such drastic actions –

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”

They stated unequivocally what the problem was with the British government –

“…the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States…”

If you are reading this post you are more than likely not a first visitor to this website. And that being the case, you know I am not some blogger that wants to be all warm and fuzzy. I don’t believe in sugar-coating currents events and I damn darn sure don’t want to give false hope and impressions of what is going on or where we as a country are headed. I always want to give you the straight talk and the straight, honest answers. But remember, these are only my opinions. Seek out, research, and come to your own conclusions of what is happening in our country today (well, over the last 120 years actually) and why.

In this day an age of misinformation and “deepfake” I want you to trust no one but yourself, and hopefully your spouse. I am confident you can figure out this situation, I just want to share some thoughts that I think are important to where we are as a country and people right now.

The Declaration of Independence listed approximately 26 grievances against the government of Britain.  Among those I found these specific items to be especially interesting:

  1. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
  2. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
  3. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
  4. 4th-3He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
  5. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
  6. For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
  7. For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
  8. For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
  9. For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
  10. For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses.

Let me make a note of those just for conversation’s sake:

  1. He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. Judges now “make” law, are appointed by the President, serve for life, are paid by the government (who sets their pay scale), and the Supreme Court is untouchable even when ruling against the Constitution. Even the most minor federal judge in the middle of nowhere can stop the President (the entire Executive Branch) or Congress (the entire Legislative Branch) from performing their Constitutional duties. Does that sound even remotely right?
  2. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, 4th-4and eat out their substance. The layers of government bureaucracy, local level to the federal level, now number in the 10’s of millions of employees. All serving in a system wherein they can arbitrarily create policy and regulation that carry the force of law. And those laws can ruin people’s lives, destroy businesses, and devastate entire communities.
  3. He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. Not only do we have a huge standing Army, we have a huge standing Air Force, Navy, Marine Corp, and National Guard. We now have a situation that dwarfs what the Declaration of Independence complained about. And it costs us 100’s of billions of dollars every year. Money that we have to borrow…driving the country into bankruptcy. We fight numerous, endless, and immensely destructive wars…feeding the military-industrial complex.
  4. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. Our military now 4th-6has unlimited powers, via the NDAA, even within the borders of the US. Posse Comitatis is no longer recognized by the federal government or the military. The military is free to arrest, detain, ship to another country, or kill any US citizen within the borders of the USA by the simple order of the President, and in some cases, by local military commanders. And God-forbid you ever fall under the designation of “potential domestic terrorist”…then you have no rights, no protection, no Constitution…you are at the mercy of government officials.
  5. He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: Our government has now subjugated US law to UN law, agreements, and in some cases even Sharia Law. That is in direct opposition to US Constitutional law. In some legal jurisdictions now, Sharia Law (Islamic religious law) is now recognized as superior to US law. 
  6. For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: One only needs to look at the nearly 1.5million law enforcers stationed throughout every community, at every possible level of government, to understand this problem. There is little resemblance of yesterday’s peace officers to today’s fully militarized law enforcement officers who operate at the whim and will of federal guidance and political direction.
  7. For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: The political class, the ruling class, is virtually immune to arrest and prosecution for the crimes they commit. We see one politician after another commit serious crimes with absolute impunity. Such is the benefit of the political ruling class. We have a two-tier judicial system…the ruling class…and everyone else.
  8. For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: This goes without saying. But it is even worse than you 4th-5might think at first pass. Not only does the government, at all levels, impose taxes, fees, and financial penalties on its citizens at will and without authority or permission…it also eliminates the payment of income taxes by those they wish to exempt. It has gotten so bad that over half of the country’s citizens pay no income taxes while the minority of the population support the entire country’s finances…including the immense welfare system that the majority of non-taxpayers benefit from.
  9. For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:  The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the previous Patriot Act, and the present Freedom 4th-7Act…as well as a host of non-laws (Presidential Directives) have eliminated the effect of the Sixth Amendment found in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. The government can, at its own discretion, deprive citizens of rights, property, money, and freedoms through the imposition of “policy” enforced by police. And they do so to the tune of 10’s of billions of dollars each year with impunity. There is little to no defense against such arbitrary civil forfeiture acts of government in today’s system. The Civil Asset Forfeiture laws allow private property, including cash/money owned by US citizens to be seized without due process, without even any criminal charges being filed. Law enforcement simply takes the property from citizens. This is done to the tune of tens of millions of dollars each year.
  10. For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses. The policy currently in use and in 4th-8force by the US government is called “rendition.”  The current policy of rendition is the government sponsored kidnapping and extrajudicial transfer of a person from one country to another to avoid the US legal system. And in so doing allows the torture and indefinite detention or execution of prisoners that the US federal government wishes to impose itself upon.

So, I guess some things haven’t changed much since the days of British government tyranny.

Well, that isn’t exactly true:

  • We are taxed by government far more heavily now than prior to the American Revolution.
  • We are regulated by government far more so now than prior to the American Revolution.
  • The federals, state, and local levels of government are far more controlling over the population than prior to the American Revolution.
  • As percentage of population, we have far more government officials, bureaucrats, and regulators than prior to the American Revolution.
  • 4th-9As a percentage of population, we have far more law enforcement officers than prior to the American Revolution.
  • We have far more laws, regulations, rules, policies, and codes than prior to the American Revolution.
  • As a percentage of population, we have far more politicians than prior to the American Revolution.
  • As a percentage of population, we have far more people in jails and prisons than prior to the American Revolution.

Pretty much according to every negative aspect of life prior to the American Revolution, we have it ten-fold worse here in our lives…in our current day good ol’ USA. Right here, right now…in our day and age!

So what does that mean? To answer that question let’s look at who signed the Declaration of Independence:

Adams, John
Adams, Samuel
Bartlett, Josiah
4th-13Braxton, Carter
Chase, Samuel
Clark, Abraham
Clymer, George
Ellery, William
Floyd, William
Franklin, Benjamin
Gerry, Elbridge
Gwinnett, Button
Hall, Lyman
Hancock, John
Harrison, Benjamin
Hart, John
Hewes, Joseph
Heyward Jr., Thomas
Hooper, William
Hopkins, Stephen
Hopkinson, Francis
Huntington, Samuel
Jefferson, Thomas
Lee, Francis Lightfoot
Lee, Richard Henry
Lewis, Francis
Livingston, Philip
Lynch Jr., Thomas
McKean, Thomas
Middleton, Arthur
Morris, Lewis
Morris, Robert
Morton, John
Nelson Jr., Thomas
Paca, William
Paine, Robert Treat
Penn, John4th-13a
Read, George
Rodney, Caesar
Ross, George
Rush, Benjamin
Rutledge, Edward
Sherman, Roger
Smith, James
Stockton, Richard
Stone, Thomas
Taylor, George
Thornton, Matthew
Walton, George
Whipple, William
Williams, William
Wilson, James
Witherspoon, John
Wolcott, Oliver
Wythe, George

Collectively how do we refer to these men today?

We call them, or at least use to call them, freedom fighters, patriots, honorable men, and Founding Fathers. We revere them, we honor them, we appreciate and marvel at their great sacrifices that they made in founding our country. They provided a rich heritage of freedom, rights and liberty for a new country.

But what if all of that freedom fighting, resisting and generally all of that Declaration of Independence stuff was all occurring in today’s world?

What if a group of well-known and honorable men got together, outlined a long list of unjust tyrannical actions of today’s federal government against US citizens?

And then these pillars of society declared that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish that government, and to institute new government…even it meant with force and violence. What would happen to these individuals?

Well, let’s look at what DHS and the FBI has to say about it.

You are considered a potential domestic terrorist if you are any of the following:

•    4th-14Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack;
•    Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”;
•    People who consider themselves “anti-global” (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty);
•    Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”;
•    Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty”;
•    People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty;”
•    Anti-abortion advocates (a.k.a. Pro-Life).
•    Bulk purchasers of food.
•    People who pay with cash.
•    People who want internet privacy.
•    People who display “liberty” or “freedom” oriented bumper stickers.
•    People who display the American flag.
•    Men and women who are veterans of the military.

4th-10So there is little doubt if the Declaration of Independence was written and signed today, all of those original Founding Fathers, all those patriots and freedom fighters, would be swept up in massive FBI raids, using no-knock warrants with fully-militarized SWAT forces. Many shot and killed in sanctioned killings such as Levoy Finicum in 2016.

Now, what does that tell you about the condition of our country today?

What does that say of our freedoms, rights and liberties?

What does it say of our massive system of government, especially at the federal level?

What does it all have to do with an “emergency preparedness” website?

Let me make it real clear for you…The major threat to America today is the loss of those rights, freedoms, and liberties…the implementation of a police state. No, not the threat of a police state…the growing police state that we live under right now. And that very same police state that grows ever stronger each and every day.

At some point an event will occur, and the country will be thrown into confusion and chaos the likes of which you have never ever seen before in history. January 6th 2021 was a close call and an example.

And when that catastrophic confusion and chaos event happens the grid will come smashing down and it will come down completely. When that happens I want you and your family to be prepared. Better yet I want you to have a group of like-minded preparedness folks organized and supportive of each other. And best of all…if you could have a whole congregation or community ready for emergencies and disasters…that would be my dream!

Folks it is coming. I assure you of that. A country, a government can’t survive much longer imposing tyranny on its citizens as our currently is…history has proven that over and over again. Please prepare yourself and your family for the emergencies and disasters that are coming.

In the mean time, because your are prepared, you will be ready for wildfires, recessions, hurricanes, earthquakes, unemployment, retirement, epidemics/pandemics, and most other natural and man-made disasters as well. And because you are prepared you shall not fear.

Just please understand what we are dealing with right now…and what is coming in the near future. Please prepare yourself and your family. And while you’re at it…enjoy your 4th of July, Independence Day, by remembering what this day represents, who was there originally, why they were there, and what principles they believed in.

Please prepare!

Be a modern day patriot…be a Founding Father!

How committed were our Founding Fathers?   “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

Please consider those words, their commitment to divine principles of freedom, and their willingness to give all…even their very lives for the cause of freedom and liberty…and a break from the tyranny of an unjust government.

FAQ – 5/11/2021

from Barry

  • If someone thinks they have most of their tangibles in order and can’t relocate, how much of their savings should be in cash, precious metals, cryptos, the market, and/or in insurance? I’ve seen recommendations for anywhere from 1 to 6 months of expenses in cash and 5 to 25% in PMs.

Barry,

DISCLAIMER: I am not an investment or insurance advisor and not trying to act in that capacity.

Really, really good question!! And I go at this like anything else… mission and priorities…or risk & mitigation. You can look at it both ways.

For the average person insurance is the highest priority. For instance, should your house burn down you must have enough insurance to rebuild. If the bread winner dies, you have to have enough income replacement for survivors to continue on. So, correct/appropriate insurance coverage is #1.

#2 is cash in case something occurs and you have expenses. I believe in 6 months to a year of basic expenses is the right amount. Obviously you build up to that…well, unless you are wealthy.

I do not believe in “crypto currency” at all! I think it is a scam, a form of pyramid scheme…or a purely speculative commodity worse than pork belly futures. 0% (zero) in cryptos is my rule. Kinda like a slot machine…pure gambling.

The stock market is also a gamble…but a decent one if you put your money where the big boys do, or invest through the big boys. We have a really great mutual fund for about 50% of our IRA amount. It has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 for a very long time…and our IRA is a long-term investment. The other 50% is in cash equivalent. That 50% is to give a cushion in case we need to take money out of the IRA and the market fund is down or poised to go up.

Now, precious metals…oh, boy. A decent rule of thumb is 10% And I am more of a fan of silver than gold. Remember, precious metals have little intrinsic value…its value is mostly perceived value. And historically it has held up pretty well. But, my personal view is that its value won’t last long in “grid-down”. I also like junk silver just as much as investment grade rounds. Unless you are very wealthy (i.e. multi-millionaire) I think 20 – 25% is way WAY WAY too much PM.

My favorite PMs are lead and brass…very precious indeed…and multi-purpose…and they also have built in security.

Oh, and I think it is very wise to have some, maybe all, of your cash in actual cash. Obviously very well protect from theft or destruction…but kept on hand nonetheless. When the banking system shuts down cash will be king for a short period of time.

I hope that answered what you were looking for.

Obviously I wasn’t giving investment or insurance advice…just talking about our situation. (second disclaimer)
AH

FAQ – 5/10/2021

from “anonymous”

  • I read your entire SitRep last week. I did enjoy it and it did challenge me. I am not sure what the outcome will be because it is still a work in progress for me while I think through all of your points. But, I got the idea there was more that you wanted to say, maybe something important. If I am right, what was it?

You are very observant. I got so engrossed in that SitRep I could have gone on for another 25 pages. Yes, there is that much going on right now. The “static” is coming at us from every direction and it can become overwhelming if a person isn’t careful. I saw it in church today. During our men’s meeting some men started bringing up current events. Oh boy! Masks, COVID, 2nd Amendment, Trump, BLM, etc. The class quickly went off the rails and the spirit left immediately. People started getting so worked up…exactly what Satan wants us to do.

If you read my Summary and truly heard my message then you get a pretty good idea where I am coming from…IGNORE THE FREAKING STATIC!! And once you can do that…then concentrate your time, efforts, and resources on those things that you can influence.

The world is going to do what the world is going to do! And we, as individuals, have absolutely no control over it. What we can control is our self…then we can influence our spouse, our family, our neighbors, our congregations, our communities…and that is the really important part! Get out there face-to-face with people and help them, serve them, talk with them about correct principles. Band together with those who have the same views on the same correct principles.

FORGET POLITICS ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Our American political system is so broken…Satan rules it. Don’t get caught up in politics, political discussions/debates; of course you should vote for the candidates that have views closest to yours…as long as they are not corrupt in other ways. Think local.

Man, I could go on and on but now is not the time. But, I do appreciate the observation and question.

SitRep – 5/3/2021 (summary)

This post is the Summary of a multi-part SitRep. The original SitRep (part #1) appeared on Monday, and additional parts since then. For this post to make any sense I would strongly encourage you to read Parts #1 – #4 in order.

<Click here to read Part #1>

<Click here to read Part #2>

<Click here to read Part #3>

<Click here to read Part #4>

<Click here to read Part #5>


Summary –

So now what? Is it all doom and gloom? Are we all lost to a current miserable existence and future?

Nope! All this information and opinion sharing was meant to do two things…challenge what you thought to be true…and get you better prepared for what is to come. And it is coming sooner than you think…and it is going to be worse than many of you think.

As you finish this series of articles and get down to the nitty gritty…we have to understand only a couple simple concepts to be far more effective and efficient in our preparedness activities and our life in general.

But before we get into that let me share/summarize a few things:

  • The Economy

The economic system of the US is over, shot, wrecked, and any other melodramatic term we could use. But you understand what I am saying…it is unreliable if not actually finished. We are ruled by debt and every day the system transfers more wealth and resources to the ultra-wealthy and powerful…at the expense of the common citizen…especially the middle class.

  • The Military

Our government thrives on and loves war. It loves every aspect of it, and our leaders look for every opportunity to get involved in armed conflicts around the world…and domestically. The government and the military-industrial complex profit wildly from wars. We, as a people, generally idolize our military and war…we brag about our prowess and our skills of destroying and killing, invading, overthrowing, bombing and assassinating.

  • Truth

Truth is almost a dead commodity. It cannot be found in government, from virtually no business, from no government school, often not found even from the pulpit. We are constantly ruled by propaganda and its close cousin…advertising.

  • Our Constitutional Republic and Justice

Our republic is dead and gone and we are in the throes of mobocracy (a.k.a democracy). Our Constitution means little to nothing to government bureaucrats, politicians, and even the Supreme Court for the most part. There is a concerted and committed effort to establish America as an authoritarian Progressive state…the exact opposite of what the Founding Fathers envisioned and designed.

We have a multi-tiered justice system that knows virtually no real justice. The rich and powerful are almost immune to the legal system vs the average US citizen. Law enforcement officers mostly have changed allegiance from protecting and serving citizens…to enforcing law regardless of Constitutionality of those laws. They have become almost the exclusive  enforcers of the powerful ruling class (i.e. government).

  • Our Society

American society has never been more chaotic, uncivil, or quite honestly…demented. Need I say more!?

Also, I have to touch on one very important, albeit self-evident, fact. Our country is led by a President that is not fully functional in body or mind. He is physically feeble and suffers from dementia and other mental illnesses.

For decades Joe Biden has been a sexual predator…a pervert…of monumental proportions. He is a man who has fallen prey to the evils of life and passed that on to his son Hunter. They are a criminal family in every sense of the word.

But it is worse than Biden even being a pervert, Biden is there for one reason…to get the authoritarian extremists into power so they can further implement their agenda at a faster pace.

As bad a Biden is…it is Kamala Harris that is the bigger threat in all of this. She is a total puppet controlled by those with the real power. And she is all to willing to do their bidding.

Don’t get me wrong…Biden is dangerous and unpredictable due to his obvious mental instability. Biden is not a person to dismiss lightly…he could and would destroy the world with nukes in one of his delirious moments.

 

  • Potential for War

Being a war-like people we are ready at a moments notice to strike…for just about any reason…justified or not. As we look around the world there are plenty of opportunities just waiting for us to step in their pile of crap. Russia, China, Iran, North Korea…and I am sure there are more that would like a piece of us…especially if we get into it with one of the big boys.

  • The Fall

I would like to avoid repeating myself on this subject. However, one needs to simply look around at the state of the United States. Those of us 60+ can clearly see how far America has fallen. A person only has to look at how big Big Brother government has become and how virtually every aspect of our lives is now ruled, heavy handedly, by some level of government…especially at the federal level.

I hope I have made myself perfectly clear on my vision of the world as I see it presently. If you disagree…I hope you have facts, documentation, and truth to back up your opinion. Your mere disagreement with me is not a basis for changing the status of the reality of the world. Neither is your “hope” for things to be better…or your rose-colored glasses through which you view the world…is going to make the world better than the facts show it to be at this point in time.

So there is my current events opinion…I hope it makes sense to you. No, you don’t have to agree with it…just understand where I am coming from in general terms.

And before my “concept reveal” let me cover a couple things to potentially help you deal with the coming events:

  1. This economic experiment that is taking place, or rather the planed destruction, has been done before for over 2,000 years of world history. It has never, ever worked…and it will not succeed now. The model will fail…period…it is an unavoidable historical fact. However, there are some things you might consider to lessen its impact. First, have a great skill that is good demand. Doing so will allow you to command top dollar for your services…which allows you to stay ahead of price increases. Second, have valuable assets such as land that can produce food. If you ranch or farm, buy your implements now to help with efficiency later and while prices are low compared to what they will be. If you are going to buy land with a mortgage…FIXED rate mortgage only. Third, buy the everyday essentials ahead of time. Buy plenty of what you use…like in years worth of items. Obviously I am referring to food, OTC medicines, clothes, etc. Fourth, don’t buy into schemes such as buying lots of gold/silver, cryptocurrency, etc. Yes, some amount of precious metals is a good idea but don’t get carried away. Fifth, own a company whose product or service is in high demand…especially in a time of recession or depression. Pepsi is an example…people like me will buy Pepsi no matter how tough times get or how high the price goes. If you can’t own the whole company…then buy stock in a company such as Coca-Cola Bottling Co. If you really want to go this route…think popular liquor and cigarette brands. Those two aren’t my thing, but some folks swear by them.
  2. I already explained what you need to do for truth…depend on yourself to be your own oracle. And plead that heaven will assist you in knowing what is true. Notice I didn’t say work hard to reveal what isn’t truth…there is a reason for that. Just ignore all of the static until you need to need to know some truth. Then seek only that…discard all of the other crap static from your life.
  3. Understand the difference between democracy and Constitutional Republic. Study the Constitution and the Bill of Rights…and why the Founding Fathers wrote it as they did. Clearly understand the Declaration of Independence! Reject and and all Big Brother government by understanding that the federal government is no longer by the people and for the people. Our federal government serves only itself and its masters. Look at justice in a “justice for all” light. Not jaded for some, exempt for others, and anti-justice applied to some unlucky few. Beware of thugs with badges. Know that not a single federal law enforcement agency serves the citizens of the United States, they serve only those in power…to keep them in power.
  4. There is a saying…“Be in the world, but not of the world.” Truer words have never been spoken…as if they were written for our day. Put down your technology once in a while and go be a good neighbor and talk to them. Give service to others…lots of service to as many people as possible. Don’t accept or participate in the evils of today’s society…nor justify those that do.
  5. Stop idolizing the military! Yes, you can honor those that selflessly serve…but don’t turn them into idols. Our United States history is full of us sticking our noses in where it doesn’t belong. Do not support war or other so-called military actions that we so readily engage in around the world. When is war justified? In defense of our freedoms, rights, liberties, our families, homes/homeland, and God. Otherwise…stop the profiteering of the military-industrial complex. And remember, it is both the “military” and their related industries. Remember too, our Founding Fathers did NOT want a standing army…and you should now be able to see why.
  6. See that America has fallen. We are no longer a Constitutional Republic we are a democracy headed for the final goal post…authoritarianism/totalitarianism. The federal government is hell-bent on destroying whatever few rights, liberties, and freedoms that are left. You must know and truly believe in those rights, freedoms, and liberties that our Founding Fathers held so dear…and why. Understand that they saw this day coming…they tried to prevent it but couldn’t. Teach others about rights, freedoms, and liberties, especially your family. Use those concepts in all your dealings. Stand your ground. Be prepared to give all that the signers of the Declaration of Independence where ready to do.

Now, back to my two simple concepts to avoid a miserable current existence and future.

#1 – Principles vs politics. I have written on this subject ad nauseam. Simply put…you have to give up political beliefs…all of them. Both political parties, Democrat or Republican, put their party interests/agenda above the national interest. One but has to look around today to see that is an absolute fact.  Along with that cleansing of political beliefs, you have to acquire, or strengthen existing, personal principles that are based on a sound foundation. For me that foundation is plain and pure…eternal God-given principles and the principles found in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Once cleansed and correct principles have been firmly put in place…you stick by them…no matter what. Yes, some will call you “idealistic”…but they do so only because they have embraced situational ethics. They themselves have no foundation…or a weak foundation built only on sand. They think themselves wise, or enlightened, or smarter, or simply better than those that are idealistic. They are not.

But I ask…Were our Founding Fathers idealistic? Was Jesus idealistic?

Yeah…thought so…don’t allow yourself to be beat up by those who willingly get tossed about by any winds that come along.

You must stand by your principles…period! Always, every time, without wavering…no compromise. When it comes to our nation’s situation I have no room for compromise…and advise you to be the same. I do advocate consensus when the times and situations call for it.

The ultimate evil is to control others actions. You must give people the right to choose for themselves, to embark on their own actions. But, all actions have consequences. Actions that cross the line of correct principles warrant natural and appropriate consequences. But do not seek to control others…or you are no better than our current rulers.

#2 – Sphere of influence. Know who you can influence and who you can’t. We can influence ourselves quite easily…except in the cases of personal internal evil or adverse mental health conditions. You can influence your spouse and your family fairly easily. I said influence…NOT force. You have some influence over your congregation. (If you don’t have a congregation, get one.) You can also have influence over your neighborhood and community if you are advocating correct principles and do so in an appropriate way. You may have some influence in your county, much less so on the state level. Influence over national matters for the majority of individuals is virtually non-existent.

Once realistically assessed, use your influence for good…fighting evil at every turn. Be a voice, be a leader, be the guy who can be trusted and counted on. Stand up for the your rights…and rights of others. Yes, that means stand up for the rights of others always…even when you don’t agree with them personally. If your principles are well-grounded you will not find yourself at odds advocating for the God-given rights of others.

You have limited amounts of energy, time, and money…use it most wisely in areas where you have the most influence. Where you have little to no influence…don’t waste energy, time, or money.

Now, I have covered what I see is the wrong in the world today and the significant problems we face. I have also revealed…or repeated…my two simple concepts to deal with the problems and wrongs we face. When the time comes your principles and actions will be that which saves you, your congregation, your community, and most of all…your family.

As the grid goes down and we see TEOTWAWKI staring us in the face…we will not fear, we will not shrink, we will not hide, we will not shirk…we will stand and fight the good fight. And in the end, regardless of what happens, we will hear “Well done.” What more can we ask for?

Why do I bring up this long SitRep now, this week? Society’s desperate condition.

Society is collapsing all around us. We cannot stop it. We may be able to slow the collapse closest to us, but the collapse is here, getting worse, and the collapse is inevitable. How so?

Recall John Adams said, “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

The society within the boundaries of the United States of America is committing suicide. We the people, citizens of the United States, along with illegals, have been working on committing national suicide for a long time. To see this plainly…you only have to look at those in Congress and the White House over the last 130 years to understand this predicament.

You have to function within society, but you don’t have to be part of this society. Live your principles, stand by them always, fight the good fight…know the ending. Good does win…know that, it is a promise we’ve been given.

  • Review your plan now.
  • Take action.
  • Don’t delay.
  • Be prepared so you shall not fear.
  • Have on the right jersey when the final whistle blows.
