by John L. Kachelman, Jr.: January 6, 2021 and Lepa Radić—Memorials to Brutality 5 (1)

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.

When all facts are known, and they will inevitably be known, history will record the facts of January 6, 2021 as racist, political terrorism which traumatized millions, wrongfully incarcerated hundreds, and shredded the populace’s confidence in “liberty and justice for all.”

A number of articles have already published thoughts on this day and have used the term “infamy.” It is suitable. The term “infamy” is recalled in President Roosevelt’s “Day of infamy” speech to Congress. The word refers to that which marks an “extremely bad reputation, public reproach, or strong condemnation as the result of a shameful, criminal, or outrageous act; an infamous act or circumstance; loss of rights, incurred by conviction of an infamous offense.”

The treatment of the protesters in DC on January 6, 2021 definitely qualifies as “infamous.”
The response to the protesters marked the inevitable descent into despotic tyranny by a government that is insulated from reality and blindly ignorant to their sworn duty. Their position is to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution so our Republic will stand strong and liberty and justice for all is a hallmark. They failed…MISERABLY failed.

Their failure was prompted by a delusional racist, political terrorism. Their failure was coordinated by carefully planned evil machinations. Their failure was disguised with doublespeak claiming to defend the “Law” (but it was a “law” they themselves follow while ignoring the true Law of our land).
I choose to add to the infamy of this high-handed tyranny the term “brutal.” Look at history and note how this racist, political terrorism behavior is memorialized as “brutal.”

The brutality on February 8, 1943

Lepa Radić, was a 17-year-old Bosnian executed during World War II. In her last minutes of life, her tormenters offered to spare her life in exchange for the names of her accomplices, she refused. She had been captured in February 1943 while organizing the rescue of some 150 women and children seeking refuge from the Axis. She attempted to protect her charges by firing at the attacking Nazi SS forces with a barrage of her remaining ammunition.

After they caught her, the Germans sentenced Radić to death by hanging. The Germans kept her in isolation and tortured her in an attempt to extract information over the course of three days leading up to her execution. She refused to divulge any information about her comrades both then and in the moments just before her execution.

On February 8, 1943, Lepa Radić was brought to the gallows in full view of the public. Moments before her hanging, Radić was offered a pardon if she revealed the names of her Partisan comrades. She passionately responded, “I am not a traitor of my people. Those whom you are asking about will reveal themselves when they have succeeded in wiping out all you evildoers, to the last man.”

The brutality on January 6, 2021

Do not think the brutality of tyranny is isolated in Fascist Germany. This evil treatment was not removed when Nuremburg’s sentences were announced.

The brutality of racist, political terrorism is on full display with the events following the January 6, 2021 protest in Washington, DC. But this time, it was not an invading enemy but it was Americans brutalizing Americans!

After being arrested without warrants and imprisoned without charges the American citizens were subjected to brutality in numerous forms. And this is in the capitol of their own nation!

One article cited the torture in these words: Jan. 6 Inmates Endure Worse Abuse Than Gitmo — Brutally Beaten, Stripped, Hogtied, Humiliated By Guards, One Prisoner Blinded In One Eye.

The following is a script from an interview discussing the brutal racist, political terrorism wrought by the ruling Elite in Washington, DC. NEWSMAX with Greg Kelly & Joseph McBride: McBride told Kelly, “What I can say about the Jan. 6 protesters who remain incarcerated or detained at this point, is that their constitutional rights and human rights are being violated by the Department of Justice and the Federal Government at this very moment.”

He went on to explain, “The law is clear that no type of punishment is appropriate for a detainee. Despite that numerous detainees are being held in solitary confinement for long periods of time. They’re being denied medical care. They’re taking beatings. They’re being denied sleep. They’re being psychologically, emotionally, and physically tortured on a regular basis.”

Greg Kelly asked, “Who’s beating them up?” McBride told Kelly, “I am alleging that the guards are beating them up. The staff are beating prisoners on a regular basis and have been doing so for a long time. This is no exaggeration.”

The ability of the progressives and ruling POLS to look blindly at the brutality of those imprisoned enrages me. These are the ones who cursed and condemned what they called the brutality of Gitmo for known terrorists.

Listen to their own words:

From World Socialist Web Site an article deploring the inhumane treatment of known terrorists in Gitmo and damning the US government for permitting it to continue remarked on Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) as he attempted to calm the progressive’s criticism for Gitmo.

“Durbin’s tearful apology, Democrats make cowardly retreat on Guantánamo torture” 24 June 2005. Durbin then commented: “If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings.”

Highlight the DEM’s observation about brutality to those imprisoned: “you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings.”

What Sen. Durbin damns in treatment for those crying “Death to America” is applauded in the treatment of those who cry “America is great!”

A Brutal Pretension

The term “pretentious” aptly describes the characters supporting this brutal racist, political terrorism. It refers to those whose actions are “characterized by assumption of dignity or importance, especially when exaggerated or undeserved; making an exaggerated outward show; full of pretense; having no factual basis; false.” Such well describes those who have used this tyranny to further consolidate their evil ambitions.
The circle jerk back character in the WH Pressroom promises January 6, 2022 as an entire day where Joe Biden will attack President Trump for January 6, 2021 “Insurrection”! Really? If there is an insurrection why have NO CHARGES of such been made against those illegally imprisoned for one-year?

On June 26, 2021 Joe Biden “reaffirm[ed] the United States’ unequivocal ban on torture and opposition to all forms of inhumane treatment”; acknowledged that torture “is prohibited universally, and violates U.S. and international law”; and “pledge[d] the full efforts of the United States to eradicate torture in all its forms.”  Really? This was made a full six-months after those arrested were brutalized and denied their Constitutional rights.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said “the president bears responsibility” for the attacks. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. said: “They tried to disrupt our democracy. They failed.” Schumer and Pelosi said Trump incited an “insurrection” against the country. Really? These are the Capitol Leaders who ignore the deplorable treatment and brutality of Americans who are the focus of brutal racist, political terrorism!

Look at the reality of January 6, 2021…The DEMS offer tearful apologies and consternation over the treatment of those who seek to destroy our Republic and shout “Death to America.” However, these same DEMS applaud and enable the torturous and illegal imprisonment of Americans who were marching FOR the Constitution and viability of our Republic!

Where are all the progressive protesters crying about human rights violations? Why is this being permitted to happen in America? This is completely unacceptable yet it is embraced by both political parties. It is propagandized by a special committee in the House whose intent is to validate brutal racist, political terrorism.
American citizens have been hunted down, murdered and arrested by the corrupt FBI/CIA for the crime of being present on January 6 and entering into the Capitol building as they followed the invitations of the Capitol Police. American citizens are imprisoned, tortured and abused. And the Rulers in Washington, DC have mouths watering with anticipation that the kangaroo courts and committees will sanction this brutality.
Jim Hoft is to be commended for setting up an informative page on this travesty. It is aptly called AMERICAN GULAG. From this site distressing facts, anecdotes, and insight into the brutal racist, political terrorism of January 6, 2021 can be found. Over 700 were arrested BUT 0 charged with insurrection! And we are told to believe that insurrection was planned and implemented—but one-year later NO charges of such have been made!

Will Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, McCarthy, and McConnell admit…

• There was NO insurrection?
• There is inhumane torture, cajoled confessions, and despicable racism?
• There were FBI/CIA plants that committed illegal acts?
• The video that has been denied will be made available?
• That those illegally imprisoned are victims of political Fascism?
• With tear-filled emotions that those imprisoned for J6 are Patriots?
• These arrested are not insurrectionists and traitors?
• Those being held are subjected to the inhumanity of the “Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings.”
Let Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, McCarthy, and McConnell listen carefully to this closing statement and know that history will write the events associated with January 6, 2021 as certainly as it did with the Fascist in February 8, 1943.

January 6, 2021 will be a historic monument to the fact that racist, political terrorism and its brutality will never break the heroic spirit.

The Fascists in 1943 are chronicled as brutally pursuing tyranny…the Fascists of 2021 will be chronicled in the same manner. Both were imprisoned, tortured, and suffered inhumanly at the hands of the State’s Guards. Those accused and arrested on January 6, 2021, and slandered by the politicians as insurrectionists will say: “I am not a traitor of my people.” The actual traitors will be exposed and punished! Justice will be served.
Let the Rulers know there will be Retribution. “Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

John L. Kachelman, Jr.: Inescapable & Invincible Truth 5 (1)

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.

There are two facts that are woven into the history of civilization. First, the crucible of consistency is always the undoing of error. And, second, truth always becomes evident and triumphs. When mankind is embroiled in civic and cultural chaos the only hope is the absoluteness of truth. This is an inescapable truth in history.

Truth is an imperiled commodity in today’s civilization—it is almost extinct in many public forums, governmental newspeak, school boards, and even in medical diagnosis.

In mythology Aphrodite/Athena developed an invincible force composed of Amazonian women. The Amazonians acted in the Battle of Troy and were later included in mythological tales of Ulysses (Odysseus).

A mystical girdle is given to the Amazonians. This girdle was used to create a “lasso of truth.” This lasso was unbreakable, immutable and indestructible. The most noticeable power was its ability to force people to tell only the truth.

In either fantasy or fact, TRUTH is recognized as the predominant virtue in civility. Even the pagans, with all their moral and civil failings recognized TRUTH as a critical bond in life. When truth is paramount, mankind is secure. The commanding role of truth was stated by Christ, “You will know the truth AND the truth will set you free.” Without truth there is no freedom! Unfortunately, the control of truth in daily life, worldly politics, and religious practice is challenged and replaced with untruths. Such is “false news,” or “false flags.” When there is truth there will instantly be untruths. As truth brings unity, harmony and happiness, untruth seeks to instigate chaos and harm. Untruth utilizes garage door pulls, flawed medical tests, and political posturing.

The commanding control of truth is historically recognized:

  • Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed (Friedrich Nietzsche).
  • When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear (Thomas Sowell).
  • The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it (George Orwell).Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth (William Faulkner).
  • All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them (Galileo Galilei).

    But, remember the bitterness that untruth displays. There is an utter contempt for truth. Those speaking untruth embrace ignorance and folly. These are rancid in their slander and libel. “No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth” (Plato).

    The untruth, the false news, the false flags of untruth’s communication always seeks damage to reputations, institutions, civil governing, religious practices, and individuals who refuse to conform. The practice of untruth from evil elitism is historic:

  • In the 1700s, a woman named Mary Toft in England tricked doctors into thinking she could give birth to rabbits. Sometime later she was forced to admit that she shoved dead rabbits into her vagina before ‘birthing’ them.
  • Between 1932 and 1972, the US government tricked around 600 black citizens from Tuskegee, Alabama into believing that they were receiving free healthcare. Whereas they were actually test subjects to study the natural progression of untreated syphilis.
  • In 1985, In California, a guy claiming to be a doctor successfully tricked a girl into bed (and out of $1000) by claiming that he can give her a vaccine for a ‘fatal disease that she had contracted’ by having sex with her.

    One would hope that the dissemination of known untruths would not exist in our modern “enlightened” era. However, such is hope misplaced. A casual observation reveals that the publishing of untruths and the groundless verbal accusations have accelerated to the point that untruth is more pronounced than truth. The historicity of this damning cycle is found in the prophet Isaiah’s recorded sorrow, “You must not prophesy the truth to us. Speak to us pleasant words, prophesy illusions.” There were those who feigned a religious devotion were exposed as those “who swear by the name of the Lord and invoke the God of Israel, but not in truth nor in righteousness.” The judgment on the national level was “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has stumbled in the street, and uprightness cannot enter.” The prophet’s final sob moaned “Truth is lacking.”

    Amazingly, the publishing of propagandizing untruth is recognized by those in the controlling media. The Stanford Report (2003!), reported the presence of deceptive media reporting. In a description of a course, the following was reported, and do not miss the acerbic report linked from Politico: The truth about lying: Course explores history of deception.

    This idea that the media is made up of unselfconsciously liberal elites who don’t even recognize the biases they have against conservative policies and conservatives in general goes back decades, to when newsrooms were more or less homogenous in nearly every way. At first, conservatives fought back by founding their own magazines; after Watergate and in the midst of the Reagan administration and liberals’ contempt for him, organizations like the Media Research Center began cataloguing the myriad examples of biased coverage, both large and small. And there was a lot to catalogue, from opinion pages heavily weighted in favor of liberals to reportage and analysis that looks a lot more like the opinion of the writers than unbiased coverage.An article from NBC announced: Media bias against conservatives is real, and part of the reason no one trusts the news now it might not be conscious, but the way that reporters treat conservatives in their coverage has always shown their liberal leanings.

    The brouhaha instigated by the DEMS/NEVER TRUMPERS/RINOS led to a media feeding frenzy fueled by untruth. A good example of this is the article Republicans Bludgeoned with the Truth.

    “David Brooks: The evidence against Trump is overwhelming. This Ukraine quid pro quo wasn’t just a single reckless phone call. It was a multiprong several-month campaign to use the levers of American power to destroy a political rival.” Republican legislators are being bludgeoned with this truth in testimony after testimony. They know in their hearts that Trump is guilty of impeachable offenses.

    Pay close attention to the above and note how evil deceptively boasted about using truth as justification for the participants’ criminal actions and treasonous habits. Truth had no presence in this travesty of civility. All charges and insinuations were blatant untruth! It was all LIES!

    And here are a few of the consequences that propagandized untruth has wrought in recent years:

    • Depraved accusations against those viewed as political enemies of the controlling elite. Accusations of flagrant immorality, criminality, and the distortion of facts united as a broadside from the Elite and have received front page above-the-fold position, even though they were lies.
    • Deliberate deceptions by the elite pols, media, and entertainment personalities diverting the public’s focus from the reality of our national, culture and civil disintegration.
    • Villainous untruths upheld by the Medical Professional Community and a fawning refusal to consider published COVID-19 adverse reactions. The Medical Profession has been exposed as supportive of untruth and accomplices of the untruthful Evil.
    • Overt persecution by bureaucrats weaponizing all elements of the Federal Government to oppress, silence and even imprison opposition.
    • A corrupt agenda distorting the principled statutes upon which our Republic was founded.
    • Deceptive untruths are popularized seeking to replace our Constitutional governing with Marxism.
    • A staunch refusal of the Legislative Branch to follow truth in its deliberations; a redefinition of truth by the Judicial Branch rendering its decisions a mockery of justice; and, the buffoonery in the Executive Branch to exercise the truth.
    • We have been brow-beaten, shamed, ostracized, assaulted, wrongfully imprisoned and a myriad of other evil actions as untruths were pressed by local, State and Federal governments.
    • National corporations, businesses, hospitals, school boards and even religious groups have coerced compliance to the inconsistent untruths.

      A failed nation is marked when truth is discarded and replaced with untruth. When the governing authorities, media producers, and judicial officials elevate untruth and discard actual truth then the citizenry will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good. Such behavior is described by the mournful phrase, “Truth is lacking.”

      This sinister maneuver is not novel to our Legislators, Courts and Executives. It is historical. Since it is historical it is assured of the historic inescapability of the real truth. History records a Persian executive that worked to restore the Exiles. His name was Nehemiah. He was confronted by a number of adversaries whose behavior charts the typical attack strategy of evil “untruthers.” There was a feigned compromise offered, lies circulated, slander, and libel. When these actions failed to achieve the evil objectives there arose outright persecution and violence. Nehemiah remained firm. I love his response to those seeking to destroy his influence with slanderous libel, “I sent a message to him saying, ‘Nothing like these things that you are saying has been done, but you are inventing them in your own mind’” (Nehemiah 6:8).Such is the real truth describing the opposition “You are inventing them in your own mind”!

      From Freedom Works (07/05/2010), comes the observation that our nation’s founders believed that individual rights pre-exist the establishment of a government. What assures these individual rights. It is the inescapable truth.

      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…”

      Absolute truth is inescapable and invincible. Let the purveyors of untruth feel secure in their lies. But they trust only in their own imaginations! The inescapable truth—they will be exposed as fools and their folly will be recorded alongside the fools throughout history!

      Let those in governing positions understand the reality of an inescapable truth. Legislate, Adjudicate, and Execute knowing that truth is self-evident and the action taken will condemn you to the historic fools or commend you among the historic heroes/heroines!

      One final quote: “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it—always” (Mahatma Gandhi).

John L. Kachelman, Jr.: The Fall of Versailles 4 (1)

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.

The chronicles of civilization’s governments are the ultimate record of failed recycling. Mankind never learns! The greatest fail is the repetitive recycling of tyranny. Mankind complacently accepts subjection to immoral and evil authorities. The historicity is undeniable. Briefly observe how two historical government fails highlight the current conflict in our Republic (obviously there are many more examples but we only have time for two).

First, consider the majesty of Versailles Palace. This is remarkable in history. The Palace of Versailles, was the French royal residence and center of government, but it transformed into an extravagant complex. A telling fact about this grandiose structure, every detail of its construction was intended to glorify the king. The construction’s focus was on the Ruler. The ruled were ignored; they were viewed as inconsequential.

The Versailles Palace is one of the iconic portraits of the French Revolution. The French Revolution did not just happen in one day. The Revolution was a mixture of political, social and economic upheavals in France. The Palace of Versailles found itself in the middle of this conflict.

The public became agitated over the great governmental waste. The Court enjoyed extravagances while the population starved. Liberal principles removed trade barriers. Bad harvests and increasing prices fueled riots and revolt. Public opinion correctly connected the economic crisis with the monarchy. Consequently, a contempt for Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette fueled the national chaos.

The chaos led to degradation in economic, political and civil environments. On 15 July 1789, the storming of the Bastille panicked Versailles. The courtiers started to abandon the Palace. This beginning trickle soon became a flood and the Palace was emptied of its occupants.

The royal family left Versailles on 6 October 1789. The Palace of Versailles ceased to be a royal residence. It fell into disrepair and eventually was restored as a historical landmark of a failed government.

Second, consider Germany’s Third Reich. The history of this fail is well-known. The “rise and fall” of this government focuses directly upon those who served as its major leaders and the Reichstag members who permitted and approved the governing evils. The government failed because of its evil advocates.

In November 1945 the high-ranking surviving officials of the Third Reich were placed on trial before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg, Germany. Among them were Göring, Ribbentrop, Frank, Rosenberg, Kaltenbrunner, and Hess.

The trial exposed the details and scope of the criminal governing. Accounts of inhumanity were listed; evidences of tyranny’s authority were validated; the bankruptcy of a political arena where dissent was punished was highlighted; the evil of a national governing that denied personal freedoms was a common factor.

Nuremberg established the horrors of a government that believes it can mandate what the citizens believe, speak, reside, travel and behave. Such behaviors were decided to be inhuman and worthy of capitol punishment. No excuse was permitted to justify such evil behavior.

The result of this trial should be sobering to all politicians. On October 1, 1946, 12 of the defendants were sentenced to death, three were acquitted, and the remaining defendants received prison sentences. Göring, committed suicide in his cell, and ten defendants were executed on October 16, 1946. Hess was the last imprisoned Nuremberg defendant to die in 1987.

It was a humiliating end to a government ruled by tyrants. What about the Reichstag congress? What about those “elected” to serve the population? Following the Nazi seizure of power and the Enabling Act of 1933, this “governing body” was only a rubber stamp for the actions of Hitler’s dictatorship. It was useless. It was inept. It was culpable in the fascist tyranny. Those serving in the congress, only furthered the State’s dictatorship. The “Party” always gave unanimous consent — no one dared to vote against the controlling personalities.

History reveals that…a government born from lies, maintained by fear and ruled with opinionated mandates was pure evil. The propaganda that fueled the citizens’ compliance was a manipulative ploy of the politically arrogant. The horrible “science” that funded the use human beings as test subjects, was pure evil manipulated by a heinous man. Every aspect of the Reich’s governing was exposed as pure evil. There was absolutely no justification or rationalization for the government’s actions. Yes such was applauded but it was an abomination!
Now here is the undeniable point to ponder on the “Fall of Versailles”—there is ultimately a punitive justice meted to those who arrogate to themselves an evil tyranny! Justice is coming to those who propagandize, “mandate,” coerce with arrogant authority, who market in human trafficking by medical experimentation, and, who occupy an elected position but remain silently compliant. Justice is coming!

Here is another recycled historical fact. Listen to its echoes throughout the centuries:

• “Wheels of justice grind slow but grind fine” ― Sun Tzu
• “So then, I have seen the wicked buried, those who used to go in and out from the holy place, and they are soon forgotten in the city where they did thus” (Solomon, Ecclesiastes 8:10, The Bible).
• Euripides, one of the greatest tragic writers of ancient Greece (480-406 BC), “Slow but sure moves the might of the gods.”
• Plutarch said, “Thus, I do not see what use there is in those mills of the gods said to grind so late as to render punishment hard to be recognized, and to make wickedness fearless.”
• “Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Perhaps most tragic is the lesson focusing on our Republic. We are ruled by those who have no regard for personal liberty. Who wield the powers of government in a vindictive manner. Who care little about the economic calamities that fuel starvation while they feast on “gourmet” foods, party-hardy and enjoy mansions. Who feign concern for the poor only to the extent where they can personally profit. Who make scurrilous criminal charges against political enemies. Who propagandize lies as “truth.”

Gone are the politicians who actually “serve” the citizenry. Present are those who “serve” themselves. You can observe the behavior and listen to the bitter words of these politicians. Such are well described as “lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power” (2 Timothy 3:2-5).

The tyranny of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette was answered by the guillotine. Destiny condemned the tyranny of Hitler, the elected members of the Reichstag congress, and the Secretaries of the Third Reich.
All politicians, who view themselves as the “Rulers” over the “Ruled,” will face the inescapable recycling “mill of Justice that grinds slowly, but grinds finely.” These will face a wrath from a righteous populace. That wrath is stoked by the politician’s evil deeds and just punishment will be meted by those who have been wronged!

This fate is recycled history. Politicians can claim “misrepresentation.” They can manipulate the thinking of the people by propaganda’s lies. They can shroud themselves in deniability. They can weaponize government resources to punish their critics. But, they will NOT escape! These will find themselves in the recycled garbage heap of civilization’s failed governing. No matter how important they think they are “they are soon forgotten in the city where they did thus”!

To the current Congress of the United States of America…Will you learn and change your course in legislating the affairs of our nation so you will avoid the coming wrath of those you oppressed? Will you continue to view yourselves as the “Rulers” arrogantly tyrannizing those you view as “the Ruled”? Are you aware of the humiliating history that is chronicling your choice?

John Kachelman, Jr.: The Reality and Requisite of a National Thanksgiving 4 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

The fourth Thursday in November is my favorite day of the year. It is “Thanksgiving Day.” Ironically my favorite day of the year follows my least favorite day (Halloween). Thanksgiving Day celebrates the heartfelt and happy acknowledgment that the Almighty God has providentially blessed us. Halloween celebrates all that is evil, selfish and ungodly. These two calendar events frame the constant battle in civilization’s history. I prefer the celebration of good rather than the celebration of evil.

One has well asked, “Why is it that mankind chooses to celebrate thanksgiving to the Almighty only on one day, and focus on gripes, grumbles, and complaints the remaining 364 days?” The answer to this query is an indictment of society—mankind is more concerned with Self than with the Almighty God.

A celebration of Thanksgiving is a high-valued target in today’s ungodly society. Any action, celebration, moral compass, lifestyle choices, etc, that places the Judeo-Christian ethos as the governing parameters, is instantly damned in brutal verbiage. To acknowledge Thanksgiving is to acknowledge the Almighty God. In today’s culture God is not acknowledged—He is erased.

The practical consequence of erasing God is an embracing of socialism. Socialism advocates that the communal thought is the source of all power; the State is the ultimate arbitrator in even the most personal choices. One is thankful to the Sate because God is erased. Such an ungodly position ultimately leads to blind submission: “The State knows better how to spend the private citizen’s money than the private citizens.” Or, “The State knows better what your children need to learn.” Or, “The State knows better how to raise your children—it takes a village to raise a child because parents cannot raise their own children!” This is a power struggle—the power of evil seeks to erase the power of good.

However, there is a major problem in the socialistic erasure of the Almighty God. The prophet summarizes this issue as he describes the socio-religious conditions of his day, “There is oath-taking, denial, murder, stealing, and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore, the land mourns, and everyone who lives in it languishes along with the animals of the field and the birds of the sky, and even the fish of the sea disappear.” And what is the cause of this catastrophic environment. “For there is no faithfulness, nor loyalty, nor knowledge of God in the land” (Hosea 4:1-3).

Please do not miss the obvious truth! The failure to be thankful to the Almighty God impacts every aspect of man’s civilization and environment. Even the “ecosystem” is destroyed by the unthankful attitude toward the Almighty God! Do you want to cure the ecosystem’s disintegration (climate change or global warming or whatever it is termed today)? Then foster a thankful attitude toward the Almighty God. Do you want to cure the criminal cancers destroying civility? Then cultivate a knowledge that will cause you to be thankful to the Almighty God. Then cultivate a knowledge that leads to a thankful attitude. It is a simple fix. But this simple fix is fought “tooth-and-nail” by the unthankful heart.

The conscience and strength of our nation is being dismantled brick by brick. The deconstruction of our nation has already removed much of our heritage that made us a world power. The heroes have been painted as the villains and the personalities that have fueled hate and instigated anger are memorialized as “saints” and recently even as the Christ!

Reliance on God’s providence was a hallmark of the early colonists but is a never taught historical fact in our schools. God’s providence is a blasphemous belief according to our politically correct speech. God’s providence is a faded memory in the minds of older Americans. The Judeo-Christian foundation of our morality, governing, and freedoms are being attacked and removed piece by piece. We have lost so much of our national conscience that Hosea’s characterization of his society reads like today’s news briefs.

Our nation has long been in an ideological war. Many dismissed the surrender of freedoms and the encroaching governmental “mandates” as inconsequential. But, ideas have consequences. When ungodly, uncivil ideas are permitted unrestricted advocacy, they become a cancer that metastases and brings ruin to every part of society.

Our national day of “Thanksgiving” brings an uncomfortable focus to this war. Two striking points are considered as illustrative of those intent on dismantling our great Republic who attack Thanksgiving Day.
First there is an effort to rewrite history so the Pilgrim’s first Thanksgiving becomes a myth. Illustrating this are a number of articles from those claiming to have “discovered the truth” regarding the Thanksgiving Holiday celebrated in the USA.

Our educational centers are teaching the “inventing” of Thanksgiving. The holiday is purported to be founded upon a legend. Here is one of many such propaganda pieces deconstructing our national heritage, revising our history and contorting truth. All is an effort to erase the Almighty God and encourage the State’s surrender to socialism.

“The legend of the American Thanksgiving holiday is said to have been based on a feast of thanksgiving in the early days of the American colonies almost 400 years ago. The tale as it is told in grade schools is a legend, a mythologized version that downplays some of the bleaker history of how Thanksgiving became an American national holiday…The holiday continued…not with a feast and family, but rather with rowdy drunken men who went door to door begging for treats. That’s how many of the original American holidays were celebrated: Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Day, Washington’s birthday, the 4th of July…By the mid-18th century, the rowdy behavior had become a carnivalesque misrule that was closer to what we think of as Halloween or Mardi Gras today. An established mummer’s parade made up of cross-dressing men, known as the Fantasticals, began by the 1780s: it was considered a more acceptable behavior than the drunken rowdiness. It could be said that these two institutions are still part of Thanksgiving Day celebrations: rowdy men (Thanksgiving Day football games, established in 1876), and elaborate mummer parades (Macy’s Parade, established in 1924).”

In stark contrast to the idiocy of the revisionist’s attempts to rewrite facts regarding documented facts, we note this historical account: “In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies…In September 1620, a small ship called the Mayflower left Plymouth, England, carrying 102 passengers—an assortment of religious separatists seeking a new home where they could freely practice their faith…Only half of the Mayflower’s original passengers and crew lived to see their first New England spring. In March, the remaining settlers moved ashore, where they received an astonishing visit from a member of the Abenaki tribe who greeted them in English. Several days later, he returned with another Native American, Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe…Squanto taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate corn, extract sap from maple trees, catch fish in the rivers and avoid poisonous plants. He also helped the settlers forge an alliance with the Wampanoag, a local tribe, which would endure for more than 50 years…In November 1621, after the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest proved successful, Governor William Bradford organized a celebratory feast and invited a group of the fledgling colony’s Native American allies, including the Wampanoag chief Massasoit. Now remembered as American’s “first Thanksgiving.”

Much of what we know about what happened at the first Thanksgiving comes from Pilgrim chronicler Edward Winslow, who wrote: “Our harvest being gotten in…we might after a special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered the fruits of our labors…many of the Indians coming amongst us, and amongst the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted…And although it be not always so plentiful, as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want.”

The second point focuses upon how the real Thanksgiving Day celebration demolishes the socialistic onslaught of our free entrepreneurial economy. This point is often eclipsed by the feast shared between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans, but it should be strongly emphasized today.

The first Thanksgiving exposes socialism as bereft of any value culturally, morally, civically, economically, and religiously! Any way one looks at socialism it is worthless—except to the elite who become richer and more aloof!

Let me suggest that you read several articles published in Forbes Magazine by Jerry Bowyer. Bowyer’s discussion on the real significance of Thanksgiving is rarely heard. His opening sentences read: “It’s wrong to say that American was founded by capitalists. In fact, America was founded by socialists who had the humility to learn from their initial mistakes and embrace freedom.”

Bowyer, in another article, exposes the emptiness of socialism’s promises. Socialism never produces abundance, energy, expansion, and improvements. As Bowyer notes, “I explained that the first Thanksgiving was a celebration of abundance after a period of socialism and starvation…Their Thanksgiving celebrated the triumph of the individual, private property, and incentive, over collectivism…For them, God, not Plato, knew best. Accepting the principles of private property and self-interest was God’s way of harnessing self-interest to the greater good. We know all of this because an elder and Governor of the Plymouth plantation, William Bradford, kept a journal and it survives today.”

I appreciate such insight!

Thanksgiving Day is exceptional in many ways but these two points add emphasis to the reality of such a day celebrated in history and its requisite to a national ideology that succeeds by a bold individualism and a contained and controlled central governing!

The Bible says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12). Perhaps we should add the thought “and whose citizenry remains thankful for the divine blessings.” The Bible says in Deuteronomy 28 that if we honor and obey God, we will enjoy blessings. If a nation dishonors and disobeys Him, it will reap curses (as Hosea observed).

I well remember the truisms once stressed by our political leaders: “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” And, “Once a nation removes God from its conscience, it becomes a god-less nation.”

This is the reality and requisite of our Thanksgiving Day!

Bill Lockwood: New Ways of Hearing the Holy Spirit? 4 (1)

by Bill Lockwood

Fox News ran an article recently by Christen Limbaugh Bloom about being “open to hearing from the Holy Spirit in new ways” (10-4-21). She speaks of “joining a church” that “prioritized being led by the Holy Spirit.” That new church had a woman “pastor” who declared that the Holy Spirit gave her a “vision” as a “message of encouragement to me.”

Bloom marveled that the “pastor” had not only received an “amazing spiritual gift” but had the “discernment to know it was actually an image from God and not just her own imagination.” Eager to learn more, Bloom asked the “pastor” days later how she too, could receive “this type of revelation from the Holy Spirit.”

The answer given was that her “desire to fully understand this type of experience was coming from a good place,” and that these “desires were born of the Holy Spirit.” The “pastor” related that her first instinct also had been to “question the images.” She did not know if they were from God or not. Maybe the “images” and “dreams” were her own creativity? She did not know until an older “pastor” assured her that she was on the right track.

At the end of the day, Bloom writes, faith must play a role in our ability to receive revelation from the Holy Spirit. In other words, there is no certainty here, but one has to believe these visions come from God. This is what “being open to hearing the Holy Spirit” means.

What shall we say to these things?

First, if this is the New Testament method of “receiving the Holy Spirit”, Christianity would never have seen the light of the second century. Everything above speaks purely of subjectivism. No knowledge that God is involved at all. The only thing we are left with is: “God gives good things”; these visions are good things; therefore they must be from God. Upon these grounds every religion, no matter how far-fetched, is valid.

The New Testament teaches us that even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14). By what criterion does Bloom and her leaders know that Satan is not the one giving the “visions?”

Second, to underscore the subjective nature of what Bloom describes, note that these individuals had to ask others if this is from the Holy Spirit. In the New Testament, the Spirit endorsed His message by “signs, wonder, and manifold powers, and gifts of the Holy Spirit” (Mark 16:17-20; Heb. 2:4). When Philip preached to the Samaritans, they believed because they saw the signs (miracles) that he did (Acts 8:6). What miraculous signs do these give that the Holy Spirit is actually involved? As good-hearted as Bloom and her mentors may be, they have nothing but their own unguided feelings to give them assurance.

Third, if the Holy Spirit is actually inspiring persons like this today, why the need to ask someone else about it? Is this the nature of inspiration that was given to the apostles? Is this how the New Testament was written? Did Paul need ask Peter if his own epistle was God-given or his “own imagination?” If so, how would Peter have answered? “I’m not sure Paul, but if you write good things they must be of the Holy Spirit.” Does this sound like an apostolic conversation?

If this is how one is to establish the truthfulness of Christianity, we are totally lost and Jesus Christ is ridiculed in the streets. But this is where “pop-Christianity” is today. Blind leading the blind. Little wonder we have need of real Bible teaching on the Holy Spirit.

John Kachelman, Jr.: “A Scarecrow in a cucumber field” 5 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

A point stressed from the beginning of this scamdemic—the manipulation of man by fear is fueled by mass hysteria causing a visceral response rather than a cognitive response. Basically, hysteria causes us to have a “knee-jerk” reaction without thinking through the issue. God wants us to make decisions based upon “reason” (Isaiah 1:18).

You can take a kernel of truth and fabricate an amazing scenario around it and convince a population of an untruth—think of the fable “The King’s new clothes.”

Realize that fears associated with physical health are among the strongest in the human psyche. This makes health issues a primary fulcrum in psyops. If you can “sell” a better vitamin, an amazing supplement, or a vita-packed juice drink, your profits will be amazing. Health sells like no other product. BUT disease sells better! And this is exactly what we have in the manipulative marketing of COVID-19!
Those who surrender to fear’s manipulation will act contrary to trust and confidence in God’s provisions. Fear will motivate people to trust in unstable security. Jeremiah rebuked Judah because the nation acted from fear Psyopsrather than from trust. Sarcastically Jeremiah chided Judah’s sources of her strength saying “They are like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they must be carried, because they cannot walk! Do not fear them” (Jeremiah 10:5).

From the beginning of this “pandemic” I have refused to trust “a scarecrow in a cucumber field”!
A point has often been stressed in the past years—we are in a war! While there has been violence in this war (BLM/ATIFA), currently the major thrust is a “psyop” that is more effective than a bullet. Those involved in the analysis and dissemination of psyops are more victorious than the public realizes. These operations are often in the unseen realms and seldom are they known.

Here is an undeniable fact—You are a target of psyop actions whether you acknowledge it or not. Years ago, I took a psychology course at University of Alabama in Huntsville that taught “reconciliation of behavior through thought.” It was very interesting and informative—you plant a “thought” and then design and suggest behavior to conform to that planted thought. The class focused on the advertising sector but the principles applied to business, religion, culture, and even military. That class initiated interesting actions that have literally been worldwide.

Let me dare to suggest that you are currently targeted by one of the most intriguing psyops ever foisted upon modern civilization! And most are totally unaware.

Here are some thoughts on this situation.

An innocent but interesting link provides the most elementary mechanics of such operations. This is from Intelligence 101: PSYOPS: The ULTIMATE Guide to Psychological Operations (PSYOPS). At this link you will read the necessities for a successful psyop maneuver. “PSYOPS are used at all levels (strategic, operational and tactical) to influence policy, decisions, command, and the will of the target audience. PSYOPS targets a groups’:
• will to fight,
• will to obey, or
• will to support.
PSYOPS are designed to shape the behavior that supports national policy objectives and the Commander’s intentions.”

When these three factors are controlled, the operation is successful. You gain the control over the will to fight against the authority, to obey the authority, and to support the authority. When you hold these three controls, then you hold absolute control!

Biblically this mental maneuvering is described in the on-going spiritual war. Note carefully the description how the Christian must control his mental preparedness if he is to achieve victory. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage battle according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying arguments and all arrogance raised against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

Do not miss the point—the victory is won or lost in the mind! Of course, there has to be physical actions. But if the will to fight, obey and support is compromised, then the war is over! Inspiration tells us that this spiritual truth is amply illustrated in the physical world.

Now, with these thoughts in mind, please consider the current situation in the world. When this scamdemic surfaced, I dared suggest that this C-19 hysteria was a fear-mongering control. It had all the hallmarks of a controlled manipulative action. It was hysterical hype and not facts. It targeted our most vulnerable areas. It was bolstered by our naivete and absolute trust in “modern medicines.” Amazingly, it blinded the world and coerced populations to surrender basic freedoms, adopt behavior that was ludicrous, and compel the “mob mentality” to conform to illegal and unnatural “mandates.”

Note: I am not denying the reality of a COVID-19 virus and its fatality to compromised health (as any other health issue can cause problems to those in this group), but I am rejecting the “pandemic” hysteria that leads many to bow before the scarecrow in the cucumber field. Evil forces have taken a “molehill and made a mountain”! And, the world’s population, the majority of the medical profession and the politicians have swallowed this entire sting operation! Many are too personally invested to admit they have been duped.

At last articles are surfacing that highlight this devilish, universal psyop. An article that appeared first as an op-ed in the EPOCH TIMES was published in Zero Hedge. This article is, COVID Hysteria Could Destroy A Generation by Tyler Durden (Thursday, Sept 16, 2021 and was Authored by Rikki Schlott, op-ed via The Epoch Times). Schlott begins by noting, “Initial stay-at-home orders and widespread closures were implemented in a state of panic and uncertainty as COVID-19 quickly swept through the world. Without data, these measures were initially popularly accepted. Two weeks to stop the spread of a novel disease struck most citizens as more than reasonable.”

Note that the “beginning” rested upon an absolute dependency on modern medical advisors. These were trusted sources believed to have the “best interests” of the public in mind. Catastrophic charts forecasting hundreds and millions of deaths on a daily basis were given wide publicity. But, the two-weeks became months and now years. The hyped deaths became less than the annual flu season (in fact the annual flu season mysteriously disappeared). Facts surfaced that infections, hospitalizations and deaths were fluid numbers that were redefined. Many were silenced and persecuted for challenging the “science” of the scamdemic.

Schlott’s article observes, “With more data and information coming to light, many policymakers have failed to reinvestigate and reform their precautionary measures, thus increasingly acting both in conflict with science and in violation of liberties…This is especially true of school closures. As we accrued more and more studies and demographical data about how COVID-19 impacts children, the findings have largely been a blessing. The risk of COVID-19 to small children is astronomically low, and the risk of transmission between students and their teachers is hugely unlikely.”

As true with any given psyop, there are objectives to be realized. Once again Schlott’s article frames the objective as a totalitarian submission to the “authority.” The overall authority in this scamdemic is the State—all are told to do as the State “mandates.” The submission is validated by the absurdities accepted. Look at some of these:
• Don’t buy masks, they don’t work. Now they do work, and your life depends on them.
• The lab leak is an alt-right conspiracy theory. Now it’s likely fact.
• COVID transmits indoors. Let’s close the public parks.
• Mom and pop shops better board up. But Walmart is open.
• Businesses are closed. But not for the politicians who need a blowout or gourmet dinners with lobbyists.

Consider this observation: “Despite the contradictions, changing narrative, and blatant hypocrisy, many individuals have continued to toe the line. They dine for an hour at a dinner table in a crowded restaurant but put a mask on to walk out the door. They have chosen blind deference and performative virtue signaling over critical thinking and individual autonomy.”

Please observe the effectiveness of the psyop. As noted above, psyops targets a groups’
• will to fight,
• will to obey, or
• will to support.
Read Schlott’s article and appreciate the insight to this operation: https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/covid-hysteria-could-destroy-generation

A second article adds to the intriguing study and unsettling conclusions regarding the C-19 scamdemic. It is titled, “Mass Psychosis Is a Real Global Pandemic” and is authored by Dr. Joseph Mercola. This article has been “scrubbed” from the internet and is no longer available. The article analyzes the C-19 scamdemic and provides statistical documentation how the world has devolved into a mass psychosis. The following points summarized the analysis:

• Mass psychosis is defined as “an epidemic of madness” that occurs when a “large portion of society loses touch with reality and descends into delusions”
• We’re now in the middle of a mass psychosis, induced by relentless fearmongering coupled with data suppression and intimidation tactics
• In the U.K., psychiatric referrals for first-time psychotic episodes increased 75% between April 2019 and April 2021
• Rates of anxiety and depression worldwide increased dramatically in 2020. Estimates suggest the COVID pandemic resulted in an additional 76 million cases of anxiety and 53 million cases of major depressive disorder, over and above annual norms, with women and younger individuals being disproportionally affected
• Mental health referrals among children have doubled in the U.K. since the start of the pandemic; 16% of children between the ages of 5 and 16 were diagnosed with a mental disorder in 2020, compared to 10.8% in 2017

In this second article was a 21-minute video. The article references Carl Jung’s study and conclusions. During my time at UAH I had several courses that shed light on Jung’s psychology. Here is a good summary for the psychological aspects of this scamdemic. If you want to know what is going on with this scamdemic, listen to the presentation. This manipulation is not restricted to one nation but is worldwide.

If you do not agree with me, that is ok BUT I want your explanation as to what is behind this mess—it is NOT true “science”! This is a manipulative psyop seeking absolute control. And it is working. C-19 is not the global pandemic BUT the fostering of a mass psychosis IS the real pandemic.

This is where our American liberties are in 2021. The entire C-19 scamdemic continues to be a psyop of amazing intrigue. The end objective is for totalitarianism to be in the driver’s seat. The conflict is between the “Rulers” and the “Ruled.”

The operation was accepted by a population trusting in the “medical professionals.” That trust was misplaced. The trust was treated with scorn and used to further personal and political gains. Many politicians quickly jumped on-board this scamdemic hysteria and now they are reluctant to admit they, as well as the world’s population, have been duped by the flimflam sting operations. So, they look for a way to save face and consequently are adopting even great absurdities.

How much longer will we allow this to limit our freedoms? The absurdity is perhaps framed best in the story of a Rutgers student who was online only but was dismissed because he was not vaccinated! “A New Jersey student has said he is barred from taking classes at Rutgers University because he has not been vaccinated — even though he is only studying virtually from home.” Here is the link: https://nypost.com/2021/09/07/rutgers-bars-unvaccinated-student-from-attending-virtual-classes/.

If you want the truth regarding this scamdemic the I suggest you DO NOT “follow the science” but “follow the money”! The “science” is fake—the greater majority of medical professionals and politicians are more concerned about saving face than saving freedom!

“Truth is more powerful than the fiction peddled…” My query: Will you “surrender” or will you “stand”? Trusting the fiction is as good as a “scarecrow in a cucumber field”!

Bill Lockwood: Creating Suffering by Means of Law 4 (2)

by Bill Lockwood

As I write, tens of thousands of Haitians are encamped under a bridge in Del Rio, TX. The numbers of these invaders increases so rapidly that I avoid putting a number on the thousands that are there, knowing that by the time this article is posted it will have swelled further. At the invitation of the Biden Administration they have trespassed into our nation, expecting more unconstitutional distribution of American taxpayer funding.

Last month more than 200,000 people crossed into the United States illegally. Taxpayers are funding the re-location of these invaders, ala the Biden Administration. Predictably, many of these are disease-carrying that threaten our citizens. “What’s coming over into the US could harm everyone,” a Texas Border Patrol agent warns. “We are starting to see scabies, chicken pox, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, and different viruses.” There are now credible reports of leprosy among the crowds and TB is growing globally.

But it matters not. The borders are wide open to the world under Joe Biden and obviously, these immigrants are not masked and do not have the COVID shots. No, these are the draconian measures the Democrats want American citizens to observe.

This is suffering to the American citizen on a number of fronts—by means of law—or lawmakers who ignore the law.

BLM

Marxist-oriented Democratic-supported Black Lives Matter has left a number of American cities in smoldering ruins from the 600-plus violent riots last year. This was a government-sponsored “protest” that included members of Congress. Huge corporations such as Airbnb, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Reddit, Snap, Amazon, Gatorade, Nabisco, and many others also donated huge chunks of cash to the anti-American cause.

Political leaders such as VP Kamala Harris even assisted in bailing out the rioters and violence-mongers so that they can loot some more. Concurrently, a huge movement to Defund the Police has gripped major cities such as Minneapolis, Baltimore, and Seattle. This is sponsored, once again, by the Majority Party in Washington, D.C.

That all of this is one-sided, consider the following.

Across the aisle, there is an Iron Muzzle on the “J6” (January 6) Trump-supporting protestors from earlier this year. These were treated differently. Not only did the Capitol Police invite many people into the building and many of those people wandered through peacefully and left again, causing minimal damage, but there is reason to believe that many of the people attending the rally on January 6 were provocateurs, whether from the FBI or Antifa or BLM, “intentionally trying to destroy conservatives.” Some of these are held or have been charged on no more grounds than that of “parading” on Capitol grounds.

Psalm 94: The God of Redress

In the face of a clear multi-tiered justice system in America, tilted to favor radicals and liberals, Psalm 94 speaks of the helpless victims of such corruption. “There is a sense in which they are by definition powerless and helpless.” The psalmist complains about eminent, powerful, important people—because they are faithless (v 2-3). Their faithlessness expresses itself in the way they treat ordinary people—ignoring the real needs of its citizens, while seeking to muzzle conservative opposition. How long with the faithless exult, Yahweh, … they crush your people, Yahweh, they put down your very own (v. 4-5).

The psalmist calls these governing officials “brutes” (v. 8). The question is asked of these, “When will you show some insight?!” Though it does not look like the “brutes” that run our country will come to reality any time soon, the comforting thought is that God notices! (v. 9-15).

God is the one who “disciplines nations” (v. 10). He does “not forsake his people, He does not abandon His very own” (v. 14). Political leaders “are stupid to make [the] assumption about Yahweh’s lack of interest in what is going on in the world.” He will not ignore the situation. Sometimes, however, it may look differently “in the short term” though oppression of the godly will not last in the long run. Authority will eventually “return to its proper basis”—God-given liberties. And then people will be able to “support the government rather than protesting it.”

The highlight comes at v. 20. Can the throne that brings destruction [unjust governments] ally with You [God]? Someone who creates suffering by means of law? That is, frequently, governments themselves, instead of enforcing law to protect its citizens, actually “create suffering” by their unjust laws. This causes in us “anxiety” (v. 19)—but God is our Rock of Refuge (v. 22). God will settle it all.

 

John Kachelman, Jr.: Lunacy In Real Time 4 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

You can ignore this, but you cannot escape it!

I love words—their etymology is an amazing study; their composition knits an amazing narrative.

The word of the day for me is the noun “lunacy.” Its earliest use is found in the 1540s and describes the “condition of being a lunatic.” Originally this was used in reference to intermittent periods of insanity, such as were believed to be triggered by the moon’s cycle (hence the tern “lunar” was incorporated and especially during the “full-moon” periods). In later legal use this term evolved to reference any unsoundness (ill-healthy) of mind rendering one incapable of civil transactions or management of personal affairs. A weakened sense is an “act of madness or folly” used from the 1580s.

“Lunacy” is the direct opposite of “reason.” The one devoid of reason is a lunatic.

Immediately associated is the “mental health” of King Nebuchadnezzar as described in Daniel 4. The King “lost” all mental health when he trusted in himself. The King regained his mental health when he returned and submitted to God for directions. This is found in 4:34-36“But…I…raised my eyes toward heaven and my reason returned to me, and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever; for His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the inhabitants of the earth are of no account, but He does according to His will among the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of earth; and no one can fend off His hand or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’ At that time my reason returned to me.”

Currently the USA is living in real-time lunacy!

From Jim Gammon I received this email that well frames the focus of this article…

“From the great High Sheriff of the High Plains, who has gone south to get the chill out of his bones! Some observations worth reading:

“I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.

“But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is changing for the worse. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, no matter how much I pray, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

“I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life—so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

“We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

“You cannot justify this insanity:

• If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

• Somehow, it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

• It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but was an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquired about it.

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees. (40% never finish)

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang member or terrorist who jumps the southern fence is welcome.

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan for us.

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

• Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.

• And…pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”

“Nothing makes sense anymore – no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.  We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is okay!                                                

 “WE have ALL been forewarned: ISAIAH 5:20 – Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.  

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship “America” has hit an iceberg, it’s taking on water, and is sinking fast. We Americans are drowning. Speak up while you still have breath and a voice for soon you will have neither if you don’t!

“Some days you’re the dog; some days you’re the hydrant.”

Well said and you can add multiple points from the current climate of lunacy that is controlling the population’s thoughts and behaviors.

Illustrating the reality of this condition is the below report that you will say “absurd!” BUT, is it any more absurd than the daily behaviors so visible by our current society?  The Scripture is very specific in teaching that when mankind forsakes God and trusts in his own understanding that “reason” is lost. History is very specific in validating that when a nation loses its “reason” because it has forsaken God and trusted in his own understanding, it will be erased. The below report is astonishing but it lays bare and exposes the folly of our culture. It can be used for comedic scoffing but the danger in doing that is that we blind ourselves to the reality of our decaying culture.

Act incredulous that this is not happening and will not impact your life, but it is a reality that you will eventually accept. Joke about it; forward memes about it; ignore it; criticize it…but it is a real-time destructive factor in your civility and family!

Another word from the 1540s is the adjective “insidious.” It refers to that which is “deceitful, cunning, artful, treacherous.” It is a compound word from one term meaning to “plot, snare, ambush,” and from a second meaning to “sit on, occupy.” It is used to refer to cunning actions suggesting that the unfriendly is lying in wait, intending to entrap.

Our real-time lunacy is empowered by those intent on using cunning fears to entrap and disable our reason. We are being convinced that truth is no longer absolute; that science is the controlling god; that a fluid standard of right/wrong is within the individual’s choice; that following the multitudes in lunacy is the best thing to do.

Here is an astonishing illustration of where you are in this lunacy. Please check the links embedded as they take you to unbelievable actions.

An Italian Artist Auctioned Off an ‘Invisible Sculpture’ for $18,300. It’s Made Literally of Nothing

“It is a work that asks you to activate the power of the imagination,” Salvatore Garau said of his sculpture.

Taylor DafoeJune 3, 2021

Italian conceptualist Salvatore Garau, via Instagram.

From the department of “They sold that for how much?!” comes today’s story, about an Italian artist who, for the cool price of €15,000 ($18,300), recently auctioned an artwork that is… well, nothing.

Last month, the 67-year-old artist Salvatore Garau sold an “immaterial sculpture”—which is to say that it doesn’t exist.

To be fair, the artist might disagree on conceptual grounds. For Garau, the artwork, titled lo sono (which translates to “I am”), finds form in its own nothingness. “The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that nothing has a weight,” he told the Spanish news outlet Diario AS. “Therefore, it has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us.”

Lo Sono went up for sale in May at the Italian auction house Art-Rite. The pre-sale estimate valued the piece between €6,000-9,000, according to AS, but competing bidders pushed the price tag to €15,000.

The lucky buyer went home with a certificate of authenticity and a set of instructions: the work, per Garau, must be exhibited in a private house in a roughly five-by-five-foot space free of obstruction.

“When I decide to ‘exhibit’ an immaterial sculpture in a given space, that space will concentrate a certain amount and density of thoughts at a precise point, creating a sculpture that, from my title, will only take the most varied forms,” the artist went on.

If you thought that was artsy claptrap, he goes on to draw a rather lofty comparison to the work: “After all, don’t we shape a God we’ve never seen?” he added.

The artist didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Lo Sono isn’t the only artwork of its kind in Garau’s oeuvre. In February of this year, at the Piazza Della Scala in Milan, the artist exhibited BUDDHA IN CONTEMPLATION, a similarly invisible sculpture demarcated by a square of tape on a cobble-stoned walkway. Meanwhile, this week, he installed APHRODITE CRIES in front of the New York City stock exchange. The effort, evidenced by an empty white circle, was supported by the Italian Cultural Institute.

“You don’t see it but it exists; it is made of air and spirit,” he explained in a video documenting the Milan piece. “It is a work that asks you to activate the power of the imagination, a power that anyone has, even those who don’t believe they have it.”

Indeed, many people on the internet seem to be having trouble tapping into that power. “So you really just taped a square and called that a sculpture?” reads the most-liked comment on the video page.

Bill Lockwood: How Did We Become a Socialist Nation? 4 (1)

by Bill Lockwood

It is shocking, but true. America is already a socialist nation—for the most part. All the earmarks of socialism are incorporated into our society. From the globalist socialist United Nations controlling our shameful foreign policy machine to Big Tech monitoring and censoring free speech to confiscatory taxation—America has fallen very low on the freedom scale.

Classic socialism started out being defined as “government ownership of the means of production.” This is why the government of the Soviet Union confiscated all the businesses, factories, farms and other means of production, murdering millions in the process.

However, the above definition is not an accurate definition of socialism today. Just as classic Marxism, built on atheism, has now morphed into Neo-Marxism and the Critical Race Theory, so the definition of socialism has evolved.

Frederich Hayek wrote that the definition of socialism has come to mean income redistribution in pursuit of “equality”, not through government ownership of the means of production, but through the institutions of the welfare state and the “progressive” income tax. As America is discovering, this is all so much poison for a society.

The shift began to occur particularly during the Woodrow Wilson administration, then was put on steroids during the Franklin Roosevelt (FDR) and Lyndon Johnson (LBJ) period. “It was under FDR that the Bill of Rights suffered a severe, and potentially lethal, mutilation that has progressively (double entendre intended) weakened it ever since. FDR attempted to redefine rights, asserting that every American has a ‘right to a useful and remunerative job,’ ‘a decent home,’ ‘adequate medical care,’ ‘a good education,’ and so on.”

A visitor to the FDR memorial in Washington, D.C. will be treated to this Orwellian redefinition of rights: “Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, Freedom from Fear.” Note the shift.

According to the Founders, rights were natural rights bestowed by God and merely protected by the government. Government did not grant any right. This is emphatically clear in our own founding documents. The Ninth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States formally states that the people retain all rights absent specific enumeration in the Bill of Rights.  In other words, God gave us rights and we only ceded a certain enumerated few to the government in order for more protection of them. But make no mistake, said the founders, if we have overlooked some of these rights in our enumeration, the people still owned those also!

Franklin Roosevelt deceptively changed all of that. Freedom of speech, for example, is far different than freedom from want. The only way one can be free from “want” (housing, food, medical treatment) is to forcibly redistribute what one segment of society produces and give it to another. But for government to forcibly redistribute actually means that it forcibly removes my personal production to meet the personal needs of others. This is not freedom. This is slavery, to one degree or another.

Now, decades later, we cannot seem to escape the clutch of this wicked socialism. The only debate seems to be how much or how little money we can unconstitutionally steal from one portion of society to give to another. Or, how much can we confiscate from our own citizens to give to foreign countries. This is to bribe them with liberal Marxist ideals such as “women’s studies” in Muslim countries or to put pressure on foreign nations to recognize homosexuality as a legitimate lifestyle. We are in the clutches of socialism.
