scholars have said that it was more likely an
event that occurred in the Fall, though the
evidence for this is rather scant. What we do know

The Spiritual State Of The Nation
As we head into this
Presidential election, I think we need to
look at the spiritual state of this nation
and why we have two such candidates
running for the highest office in the
Let me start off by saying that America is
going down. I hate to say that, because I
think all of you know just how much I care
about the nation and the people in it, but
she is going down. Why?
could give you a long dissertation on the
trajectory of our debts, the level of
internal corruption and things I just
can't share with you that would really
begin to make you see just how bad things
are. I could go on about the abysmal state
of our military and the deep problems of
discipline that we have, I could go and
and on about the temporal signs of our
decay but I have done that enough. All of
this springs from deeper spiritual
matters. The temporal decay is only an
outgrowth of our nation's rapidly
deteriorating spiritual condition.
Brothers as decomposition follows death,
so what we are seeing in America today is
merely the outward results of a spiritual
disease that has infected both the body
politic, as well as that of the general
America, once a place where people fled
religious persecution to lead holy lives
in Christian communities from its
inception, has changed considerably.
Today, there is a deep anti-religious
spirit that has moved powerfully into
elite circles. More and more we see how
leaders are taking to mocking God,
directly attacking Christians and
otherwise thumbing their nose at the God
who blessed this nation into the the most
powerful and at least at one time, the
most envied nation in the world. Yes, we
still have a lot going for us, but people
both inside and outside the nation are
starting to see that the darker side of
America is more and more a key part of her
defining characteristics here in the 21st
century. Greed, the rise of militant
homosexuality, a growing contempt and
coldness towards the poor and downtrodden,
the systemic corruption of our law
enforcement (go and read the DOJ reports
on Ferguson and Baltimore not to mention
the Banking scandals that are never
prosecuted), the open and legal bribery
now transpiring in the Presidential,
Congressional and Senate elections.
Then there are the wars, the long, bloody
wars that have killed hundreds of
thousands and made cripples and refugee's
America is slipping into the same old
traps other empires did when they thought
they were the masters of the world and no
one could judge them. They got arrogant,
they got corrupt and then they got, for
lack of a better word, stupid. In the
Bible, God calls last days Babylon
'drunk'. They got drunk on the blood of
the saints they killed. Why did they shed
the blood of the saints? Well, one reason
is that we see that the Harlot is
controlled by the devil and is a key part
of the beast (satanic) system of the last
days. But I think the other reason is the
'just because they could' kind of
mentality that seems to overtake those who
have too much power and get drunk with it.
They get the 'I am God' and the 'no one
can judge me' spirit in them and things go
downhill rapidly from there.
I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall
see no sorrow.
Our problem lies in one basic
fact and that is American leadership and a
large portion of her people want to change
Gods. They want to forsake the Christianity
that made us great and exchange it for a new
religion. Some want to move America to Secular
humanism, others to occultic
satanism/paganism. Others want to bring a
militant form of Islam ('head-in-a-basket'

and be horribly afraid, be ye very
saith the LORD. For my people have
committed two evils; they have forsaken
the fountain of living waters, and hewed
them out cisterns,
broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
There is a spiritual fight on in America but
this should surprise none of us. We should be
praying and doing spiritual battle (with
prayer) against these demonic strongholds.
Targeting The Mind
I think one thing that we all should be
aware of and be on our guard against are
assaults on our mind, our emotions and
emotional health. While I don't want to
digress, it's one of the problems I see with
modern TV. So much of it is designed to
facilitate this coming change in religion and
this is why Christianity is so often portrayed
in the most negative light. The villains are
Christians, those who hold Christian views are
'intolerant' or 'hateful' charchters in TV
shows. The techniques are real and consistent
across most US movie studios. It's why I
personally gravitate towards much older TV
shows that showed Christians in a positive and
more realistic fashion. When I relax and want
to be entertained, I don't want to have my
religion or myself insulted with stereotypes
created by those who have a vested
interest in denigrating
But this 'cerebral targeting' is very
effective against those who don't know just
what is going on, why and just how powerful
and pervasive these forces are.
In order to bring in the kinds of
changes the elite are planning, it requires
decades of careful planning and preparation as
well as a slow, progressively introduced
agenda. People must believe that the changes
that are occurring spring from their choices
and will. Thus years of consistent and
carefully applied propaganda is used and is
This is a society that is run by
propaganda. But propaganda must not be seen as
outright lies. That kind of propaganda never
works or rather works on only the most slow
witted among the population. No, they know the
need for progressive 'indoctrination' and they
know they must work on jettisoning and
discrediting the old before they can spring
the new on us in its totality.
But this propaganda works not just in
the social and religious realm, but as we all
know in the political realm as well. Great
gobs of money are spent not just on
Presidential elections, but also on major
issues of the day with PAC's and think tanks.
In this we can see how the broader American
nation has been conditioned in such a way that
we have begun to see the kinds of things that
we have seen.
The Media is a powerful tool and from it
comes the winds of change in any modern
society and most people are not aware of the
deep and enduring effect it has on them, their
own views (which are not
theirs but are manufactured
by clever propagandists, who get
rich from this business), this is why I exhort
all of you to guard your mind against the
assaults that come at you from the media. That
includes Print, TV, Movies, YouTube (a new
information war battlefield), blogs, etc.
Why has our nation slowly turned on the
God of our fathers? Why are Christians more
and more being targeted with carefully
constructed social attacks (Gay
Public/Islam, etc). Because there is a media
and elite assault on us. I can tell you this,
they are not finished with their attack. My
guess is that the next wave of attacks will
come from the Islamic world. They will find a
way to let in a human wave of Muslims into
America, many of whom will be of the radical
type. They will foment a more direct and even
violent assault on Christians here in the US,
but that will take just a little bit more
time. But yes, that is where I see things
heading over the next decade, probably sooner.
Look at things like these trade agreements
that have these new Visa
and guest worker clauses.
Companies will be able to hire Osama Bin
Bombmaker directly and our government won't be
able to do much about it. They can fire you,
and hire a Muslim Brotherhood agent.
Slowly we will begin to see more Islam
friendly news reporting, propaganda TV shows
and other methods of 'softening up' the nation
for the coming Islamic revolution... and it
will be a revolution. Weather you wish to
accept it or not, it has already started. Did
not the FBI director warn of a new wave of
attacks coming to the US? So what I am telling
you is not really news, it has been reported
to us all. More here.
I should repeat this here, yet again. These
terrorists have some deep pocket and
politically impregnable backers,
these are not low tech half-wits with a rusty
Ak-47. These guys are dangerous because they
are technically savvy, now how the money
system works, can forge documents, gain entry
to places illegally - very much like an
intelligence operator is trained to do.
Yes, Islam is coming to town and this is
what many within government are working
towards. It's not just HIllary,
even her VP
has had these ties. But
this is one of the major problems here in the
US, our leaders are being 'turned' by
terrorists, drug dealers, and organized
criminals, Chinese intelligence, Russian's FSB
and no one wants to believe it. They want to
'spin' the issue in some partisan fashion
rather than really delving into what is going
on. But this is one of the key reasons why
Isalm is coming - it will be done, as much as
possible by stealth. They will do it in such a
way as to not alarm Mr. Sixpac. But these
forces know that they will need to create a
media campaign, a PR assault to bring this in.
We who are wide awake will be able to
spot these things, often fairly easily. Others
won't be able to do it. They won't understand
the agenda and are likely to accept what they
see in their media as being natural. But it
won't be, it will be a billion dollar effort
supported by Islamic groups here in the US,
the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and yes, the UK,
which is fast becoming an important piece in
In short, if I had to summarize this
section I would say this - in order to bring
in the new, they must discredit the old, and
this is what we have been seeing with the
assault on Christianity in America. They are
using a propaganda wrecking ball to do their
worst in undermining the nations basic
Christian foundation. The satanic strategy?
Use the sexual revolution of the 60's first,
the homosexual revolution second, and soon it
will be the Islamic revolution - all targeting
key facets of Christianity. The devils key
target is the foundation of the nation that
made it the envy of the world. Why? So he can
do what he does best, get us to become so
sinful and evil, God must move into judge us.
And judge us he will.
Divorcing Americans From
I have noticed that more and more, most
Americans just don't really understand what is
going on in our world. Now this has always
been the case, but I think more so today. When
I was in Germany I was very impressed about
how astute, well read and 'deep' most Germans
were. The Germans, at least when I was there,
read. They knew the world and our own history
better than most Americans do. Why is that?
Our media and even our schools are less about
educating us as they are about indoctrinating
us, propagandizing us and manipulating us.
This too is one of our biggest problems
but all of this begs the question....?
What happens next?
Brothers, are you concerned about
America and her fall? I confess I am somewhat,
but like I told many of my readers some time
ago, I have moved past America. I live here
and do indeed care about the people here, but
the America I knew and loved is gone. I know
it is not going to return. We as nation have
crossed some spiritual Rubicon and going back
to what we once were and could have been is no
longer possible. The sinfulness and
unrepentant attitude of her population is too
deeply entrenched. These days, the kind of
arrogance that America shows in her foreign
policy is deeply part of the spiritual policy
of too many of her population - pride,
ignorance and arrogance and a complete
lack of self control. They have taken
sin and made it into various political
lobbies. The Homosexual lobby, the baby
killing lobby, the greed lobby (Wall Street),
the terrorist lobby... you name it. If it can
organize itself and has a significant amount
of money to spend, any abomination under the
sun can have a political lobby in DC.
The death of a nation... how will be as
citizens deal with that? I think now is the
time to deal with it on an emotional level and
begin to see past what we think America is and
see her for what she really is. I think this
should be the very first step we take when we
decide we need to 'come out of her'. To some
degree, we must gain an emotional detachment
from the nation. No, nothing like hatred or
disdain. Yet we must be ready to disengage
from a nation that no longer wants to serve
the Lord and more and more secretly and not so
secretly funds the enemies of the cross of
Christ, often violent enemies thereof.
Doing Battle, Dealing With
In the excellent TV miniseries Band
of Brothers, one of the characters,
whom everyone thought was a nutjob but later
found out his 'craziness' was mostly just a
pose - he gave the reasons why he never was
afraid in battle. It was a simple but most
excellent way of dealing with the kind of duty
a soldier, particularly an infantryman must
perform. He said, [paraphrasing] - "The way I
see it, I'm dead already. I died the day I got
on the plane to fly over here. You me, we are
all dead. What matters now is how we die, not
if. And if I do come home one day after this
war, well... I'll be one of the lucky ones."
Can any of you, in the deepest part of your
being incorporate that basic idea into your
walk with Jesus? That we are already dead,
that one day, Christ may require our lives of
us. Are there any versus that lead us in this
direction for our mindset?
buried with him by baptism into death:
He did not just raise him from the dead and save
us from our sins, but also...
that like as Christ was raised up from the
dead by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in newness of
hath raised us up together, and made us
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
We are if called upon,
are to give our bodies to God as a living
beseech you therefore, brethren, by the
mercies of God,
The key here is this - Where is your
mind and heart? The guy in that movie, his
mind and heart were not about going back
Stateside and saving his own skin, it was
doing his duty, what his country called upon
him to do. He made a choice to do that duty
even if it cost him his life. That is the kind
of mindset I am talking about. What are you
going to do if one day, some armed Islamic
security people bust into your home when the
'Islamic States Of America' become a political
reality and they tell you to deny Christ or
they are going to take you and your kids to a
dreaded 'relocation facility' from which no
one has ever returned?
that ye present your bodies a
living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
which is your reasonable service. And
be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove
what is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.
What are you going to do. Save your skin
or do your duty by our Lord.
whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father
which is in heaven.
In the military, your duty is to fight back
and kill the enemy, in Christianity our duty
is to give our lives for the Lord and not
return violence for violence. This is going to
be a hard lesson for many who still are in
love with this world and this life.
Me? I live like I am on borrowed
time. I live like I should have died
long ago. My life is not as important to me as
one would ordinarily think. I have learned
that this world is very transitory. I am not
going to be here forever, and frankly the way
things are going, I don't want to be!!
My life is God's. He can give, take,
bless or rebuke me at his pleasure. I don't
deserve the gifts he has given me, none of us
do. We are sinners and by virtue of that fact,
we have all greatly offended
God. Thus, I just humbly give thanks for each
and every day he gives me, try and serve him
the best I can and hope that tomorrow will
come knowing that one day, for me as it will
for all of the sons of Adam, it won't.
But let us not be complacent. One think
God really wanted me to share with you today
is this. Mind you, this is not what I would
have shared but I know that he really wanted
this up here today.
my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not
as in my presence only,
Let none of us be complacent about our
salvation. God wanted me to make that doubly
plain to all of you. Why? We know that salvation
is a gift of God and that he gives it to us
freely. So why is this important.
but now much more in my
absence, work out your own
fear and trembling.

to do of his good pleasure.

Brothers, the righteous man is scarcely
saved. It is not going to be easy for any
of us. We must double down our efforts to make
and election sure. This does not mean a
new rule book of do's and don'ts. It does not
mean a new law, what it means is that we must
make sure we have strong fellowship with Jesus
and that we are walking in the Holy Spirit.

If I were a doctor, I would look at the
spiritual state of America like this. She was
diagnosed with terminal cancer a few years ago,
the disease is progressing pretty much as
expected. The timeframe of her death can be
predicted within a relative time frame.
There is a cure. A simple cure that the patent
refuses to take.

How Have You Repaid
As I have gone through the
minor prophets I am struck by a question
that seems to underlie each and every one
of them, even if it is not specifically
asked - How did Israel repay the Lord for
his goodness and kindness? Repeatedly it
was with rebellion, idolatry, wickedness
and evil. The Lord saw these things and
sent them prophets to warn them of their
ways. They rarely listened. We have seen
this all through the Old Testament. Many
times, they persecuted, imprisoned and
even killed the prophets sent to them by
the Lord. Men whose only job was to warn -
speak the word of the Lord as Ezekiel put
it. to 'the rebellious house'.
they are impudent children and
stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them;
and thou shalt say unto them, Thus
saith the Lord GOD.
And they, whether they will hear, or
whether they will forbear,
(for they are a rebellious house,)
yet shall know
that there hath been a prophet among them.
There are times when
I feel like Ezekiel. I think any man
or woman of God who truly bears witness to
Jesus Christ in these evil times with
these wicked Americans can feel like the
prophet of old. They mocked and scorned
those men right up to the day of their
slaughter. And a day of slaughter it was.
Go and read the book of Lamenations, there
you will see the howls of sorrow the
prophet felt when he had to hold his nose
for the stench and tip-toe over the
corpses that lay slain in Jerusalem.
Now I claim no such prophetic anointing
like Ezekiel or Jemimah. No, I am just a
Christian writer, a 'scribe of
righteousness' if you will.
thou, son of man, be not afraid of them,
neither be afraid of their words,
though briers and thorns be with
thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions:
be not afraid of their words, nor be
dismayed at their looks,
though they be a rebellious house.
Yes, I know I dwell in
a land full of rattlesnakes and scorpions.
Men who smile in your face and say 'I am a
Christian' and then do all in their power
to stab you in the back. They mock me
behind my back, lie to me to my face
and do the work of their spiritual father,
satan to bring down any true man of God
they can find.
These are satan's ministers and they sit
in many a powerful place in America.
The banks we deal with
(as with Wells Fargo) the politicians we
put in office, the cops who police our
streets (and shoot unarmed people down).
This is a nation full of carrion eaters,
insects and reptiles willing to sell out
their own mothers for a dollar bill.
Brothers I know that is a harsh indictment
and I know that it does not apply to all Americans,
many of whom are indeed trying to steer
the nation onto a more righteous moral and
spiritual ground. Even those who know not
Jesus are trying, some very hard. But too
often those who claim to know him are a
primary part of the nation's spiritual
problem, deceiving and being deceived.
Encouraging sin rather than rebuking it
and keeping its victims locked in sins
clutches and chained down in the toboggan
But the prophets of old not just berated
Israel for their sins, but also their
unfaithfulness to God and his promises and
his salvation and his love. They turned on
the Lord like a rabid dog on its master,
being infected with the spiritual rabies
virus known as unrepentant sin.
The question was often
asked in those old prophetic books was how
did Israel repay the Lord for his
provision, even the land that they dwelt
on that what a gift of his providence and
won by men whom he raised up to win it.
God saw the wickedness of Israel. But
rather than just do away with them in a
fit of rage, God sent prophets to warn,
argue and appeal to Israel - 'don't
forget the God who raised us up out of the
slavery in Egypt to dwell here, repent and
serve the Lord' - was the paraphrased
message given to ancient Israel. They
continued in their rebellion.
of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a
Lord had prophets to many strange things
to get the people to consider their ways.
This is just one of many.
which have eyes to see, and see not; they
have ears to hear, and hear not:
for they are a rebellious house.
Therefore, thou son of man,
prepare thee stuff for removing, and
remove by day in their sight;
and thou shalt remove from thy place to
another place in their sight:
it may be they will consider, though they
be a rebellious house.
Israel repaid the Lord with sin and
wickedness was warned and later was
greatly punished for it. For a great many
Israelites, old and young, skinny and fat,
ugly and beautiful, it was a lesson they
did not live long enough to profit from.
The other message we can take from the
prophets after their words came to pass?
When God sends a word of warning - heeding
it is in your very best interest.
But how has America repaid the Lord? All
the blessings and wealth, the power we
Americans wield as a direct blessing of
America has repaid God like this
God will deal with this last days empire
with a thoroughness that he did not do
with Israel. God has made a specific
promise to the Israelite's of those days
and promised not to make a full end of
For thus hath the LORD said, The whole
land shall be desolate;
yet will I not make a full end.
in those days, saith the LORD,
I will not make a full end with you.
God's promises to the
Israelites were that they would suffer and
suffer greatly. But with them, because of
the Adamic, Noahic and Davidic covenants, he
make a full end of the
House of Israel. The Jews, despite their
sins still had something very special with
the Lord... his specific promise for the
future. We Americans have no such promise
and this is what often makes me shudder at
what we have done in our nation by forsaking
and showing such contempt for the God who
blessed us so.
Look at how Jeremiah spoke to the wicked
Israelites who forsook the Lord and look
when he spoke.
prophesy against them, prophesy, O son
And the Spirit of the LORD fell upon
me, and said unto me,
Speak; Thus saith the LORD; Thus have
ye said, O house of Israel:
for I know the things that come into
your mind, every one of them.
Ye have multiplied your slain in
this city, and ye have filled
the streets thereof with the slain.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD;
Your slain whom ye have laid in the
midst of it,
they are the flesh, and this city is
the caldron: but I will bring you
forth out of the midst of it.
Ye have feared the sword; and I
will bring a sword upon you,
saith the Lord GOD.
And I will bring you out of the midst
thereof, and deliver you into the
hands of strangers,
and will execute judgments among you.
Ye shall fall by the sword;
I will judge you in the border of
Israel; and ye shall know that I am
LORD. This city shall not be
your caldron, neither shall ye be the
the midst thereof; but I will judge
you in the border of Israel: And ye
know that I am the LORD: for ye have
not walked in my statutes, neither
executed my judgments, but have done
after the manners of the heathen
that are round about you.
And it came to pass, when I
that Pelatiah the son of
Benaiah died. Then fell I down
upon my face,
and cried with a loud voice, and said,
Ah Lord GOD!
wilt thou make a full end of the
remnant of Israel?
When Jeremiah spoke, it was the Lord
who was speaking in him and he let the people
know what was coming and why. God wanted to make
a clear point as to Jeremiah's authority and the
gravity of his message. He wanted them to be
certain that he meant business.
This is not at all dissimilar to what happened
to Ananais and Sapphira in the New Testament.
The sins may not have seemed grave, but God
wanted to make a clear point as to
what the wages of sin were. In the New Testament
age, let us be clear, physical death is only the
beginning of a lost soul's unending
But I ask the question again - how has America
repaid God? How have different groups in the
nation repaid him? How have we individually
repaid him? Let me say this - God hates
treachery. He really does. He does not like
people who ask for his blessings, receives them
and then turns on him. On such as these God will

This is one of the reasons I have seemingly been
so hard on Black America. Many of my readers
don't get it and I get chided by many who don't
understand it. But in Black America I see a
parallel story of the children of Israel being
played out right before our eyes. Here is a
people like Israel, who suffered the very harsh
bonds of slavery and all of the horrible
de-humanization that goes with that institution.
Yet when it comes to the sins that were decried
in Israel, that are now being seen in America,
it's Black America that has the biggest problem.
Abortion? Blacks lead the parade, violence in
our communities? Apologists will try and deny
it, but Black
America has again the biggest problem. Out
of wedlock births? Same thing.
Look I know these things are not popular to say,
the liars from the left (black and white) try
and hide the problem and put up stories on the
web that downplay or misdirect the depth
of the problem in so many communities.
They don't want to fix the problem, they want to
keep Black American 'feeling good' about
themselves and understandably keep racists from
abusing the data to suit their own evil ends.
You do that by ignoring these problems, papering
over them and making excuses for it. I say this
- you are never going to fix a problem until you
have acknowledged that you have one. For too
long, Black America has been burying their head
in the sand in which they bury their gunshot
murdered youth, placing blinders on their eyes
and pointing the finger of blame at 'whitey' for
far deeper problems that reside in our own
But why is this? Why is Black America at the
bottom of so many key statistics? Joblessness,
abortion, men in prison, etc. Why? The short
answer is institutionalized racism, and fewer
places on the web will you find a person who
has talked about this more forcefully than
I have. But that does not tell the whole story.
The real story goes to the way we have behaved
as a people, spiritually. The way so many of us
have not only forsaken God, but taken to hating
and blaspheming him. I can remember a movie by
Spike Lee, I think it was called the 25th hour,
or something similar and there was a scene where
he passes Judgement on Jesus and comes as close
to blasphemy as one can come in a movie. I also
think that it was Spike who also said after the
Hurricane in New Orleans, 'Why is it always us?'
or words to that effect.
I will tell you. When God moved to snap the
bands of slavery from off of our ankles, he did
it only after many thousands and thousands of
men died in a horrible war.... to free us. Christian
men who many thought were crazy took enormous
risk and even died trying to rid the nation of
the institution of slavery. Think John Brown.
Most Black Americans don't even know who he was.
They have forgotten about the real history of
our people and now recite a narrative coming to
us in textbooks, movies and the internet that
downplays just how hard CHRISTIANS worked to
free the slaves and how many of our people were
deep and sincere Christians who prayed to the
Lord that he would free us from our bonds, even
as he freed the Children of Israel. This was not
easy as a powerful, evil spiritual stronghold
that was over the south had to be removed. Let's
take a quick look at John Brown.
"I, John Brown, am now
quite certain that the crimes of this
guilty land will never be purged away but

Cain killing Abel,
and that is Washington killing Spartacus.
- Victor Hugo
The Civil war started soon after
Browns death and I don't need to go into just
how long and bloody that war was on America.
My point is this. God has great love for Black
America. He cares for us, but far too many of
us, as a people have turned our ass up at God
and flipped him the bird while we tried to move
up in the nation at the expense of our spiritual
foundation. Now.... How has black America repaid
the Lord? Do you really
want to know? Go and do your own research
on abortion rates in Black America and
stay away from those debunking sites. They are
usually run by the same people that were running
drugs into Black America (no joke) and also
covertly owned the private prisons where they
were enslaved when ratted out by their handlers.
They made big bucks on both ends of the racket
and most of Black America is still clueless as
to what went down back then.
What happens when a people turn on the Lord?
Betray his goodness and walk in the ways of sin?
Like Israel in the olden days, God raises up enemies
whose job it is to destroy us.
We have a problem. Not just in Black America,
but in all of America. Many think that if we can
just elect this party or that one or this
candidate or that one, we can solve these
problems. Our political problems spring from our
spiritual ones. Our political leaders, as vile
as they are, are a perfect reflection of
the people who live here, so I am not going to
spew hate at either of them. The disease is in
the body politic, not the candidates it elects.
America has repaid the Lord with sin, openly
displayed, proudly engaged in and legally
Brothers, America still stands today only
because there are still a recognizable (but
dwindling) body of people who refuse to give
themselves over to the sins and abominations of
our times. They are the modern day Lot's. They
may dwell in Sodom, but they are not partakers
of her sins.
Let us remember this - God withheld judgment on
those wicked cities because of Lot and only
destroyed them because he could not find enough
righteous souls within them.
He removed the righteous before he destroyed
those cities... utterly. It was so
thoroughly destroyed that many thought the story
a myth and that they never existed. Recent
excavations make it clear that, like usual,
those who try and throw dirt on the Bible are
liars, usually paid for liars. Those of
you wanting to know a little more about the
recent digs that many believe is Sodom will find

Now, let's personalize this. How have you
repaid him? With words of thanksgiving, praise
and a life of humble obedience? Or with
murmurings and hatred, greed and worldly
ambition? Have you repaid the Lord with divorce
against a spouse who was sexually faithful to
you? Have you repaid the Lord with ignoring the
children you fathered or mothered? Have you
repaid the Lord with righteousness or
wickedness? Have YOU dealt treacherously with

The Balkanization Of America
Allow me to start this update off with
something from American history. A page from
history we all know about in general but may
not fully understand in the details. Please
take the time to read this here as it will
serve as a backdrop to what this update will
I realize that that was rather long, but it
is an important prelude to what will be in
this update. American Civil War history is
instructive on a great many levels. I like to
read (audiobook) about it as I have learned a
great deal about a portion of history that is
slowly being forgotten by so many Americans. I
like it because we understand from it, how we
as Americans got to be where we are as well as
from what we came. That war, while it has been
mostly forgotten by most younger Americans
should be studied more thoroughly. I study it,
not just because of the slavery issue or the
cultural disparity that existed between the
North and the South, and it was significant.
But for the actual the actual causation, the
political acrimony before the war, the quiet
preparations, the turncoats (on both sides)
and finally the
first armed conflict of the war. Many of
you may not be aware that President Buchanan's
Secretary of War was accused for very good
reason of being a traitor to the President.
Why? Well, let's take a look at what people
from his age had to say about him.
It seems a remarkable fact that during the
late Congressional travail with the currency
question, no one of the people in or out of
Congress [Confederate], who were concerned
lest there should not be enough money in the
country to "move the crops," ever took upon
himself the pleasing task of rehearsing the
late Confederacy's financial story, for the
purpose of showing by example how simple and
easy a thing it is to create wealth out of
nothing by magic revolutions of the
printing-press, and to make rich, by act of
Congress, everybody not too lazy to gather
free dollars into a pile....
...The financial system adopted by the
Confederate government was singularly simple
and free from technicalities. It consisted
chiefly in the issue of treasury notes
enough to meet all the expenses of the
government, and in the present advanced
state of the art of printing there was but
one difficulty incidence to this process;
namely, the impossibility of having the
notes signed in the Treasury Department, as
fast as they were needed. There happened,
however, to be several thousand young ladies
in Richmond willing to accept light and
remunerative employment at their homes, and
as it was really a matter of small moment
whose name the notes bore, they were given
out in sheets to these young ladies, who
signed and returned them for a
consideration. I shall not undertake to
guess how many Confederate treasury notes
were issued. Indeed, I am credibly informed
by a gentleman who was high in office in the
Treasury Department, that even the secretary
himself did not certainly know. The acts of
Congress authorizing issues of currency were
the hastily formulated thought of a not very
wise body of men, and my informant tells me
they were frequently susceptible of widely
different construction by different
officials. However that may be, it was
clearly out of the power of the government
ever to redeem the notes, and whatever may
have been the state of affairs within the
treasury, nobody outside its precincts ever
cared to muddle his head in an attempt to
get at exact figures.
We knew only that money was astonishingly
abundant. Provisions fell short sometimes,
and the supply of clothing was not always as
large as we should have liked, but nobody
found it difficult to get money enough. It
was to be had almost for the asking. And to
some extent the abundance of the currency
really seemed to atone for its extreme
badness. Going the rounds of the pickets on
the coast of South Carolina, one day, in
1863, I heard a conversation between a
Confederate and a Union soldier, stationed
on opposite sides of a little inlet, in the
course of which this point was brought out.
Union Soldier. Aren't times rather hard over
Confederate Soldier. Not at all. We've all
the necessaries of life.
U. S. Yes; but how about luxuries? You never
see any coffee nowadays, do you?
C. S. Plenty of it.
U. S. Isn't it pretty high?
C. S. Forty dollars a pound, that's all.
U. S. Whew! Don't you call that high?
C. S. (after reflecting). Well, perhaps it
is a trifle uppish, but then you never saw
money so plentiful as it is with us. We
hardly know what to do with it, and don't
mind paying high prices for things we want.
And that was the universal feeling. Money
was so easily got, and its value was so
utterly uncertain, that we were never able
to determine what was a fair price for
anything. We fell into the habit of paying
whatever was asked, knowing that to-morrow
we should have to pay more. Speculation
became the easiest and surest thing
imaginable. The speculator saw no risks of
loss. Every article of merchandise rose in
value every day, and to buy anything this
week and sell it next was to make an
enormous profit quite as a matter of course.
So uncertain were prices, or rather so
constantly did they tend upward... A

Differing Visions Of America
This bit of history is instructive. The
actions of those in power before the outbreak
of hostilities was important and would play a
key role when the hostilities that everyone
knew was coming, actually did arrive. I ask
you to keep this in mind. That the North and
the South had different visions of what
America should be and look like. Those issues
had always been on the backburner of the
American political scene since the inception
of the republic. But as time passed, those
issues while politically dealt with in various
compromises (like the Missouri
Compromise) the deeper underlying issue
was not dealt with in totality until the
subject came to arms.
This I think is imperative. Today, the
issues facing America are considerably
different but no less divisive. But ultimately
the question is this - what kind of America
are we working towards? In the old days, the
question was one of Southern culture - a slave
based agrarian society and quaint, if outdated
notions of 'chivalry' or one of an industrial
based economy, a centralized money system and
a general respect for the value of all men,
including slaves. Yes, this is a very broad
and overly generalized look at the issues of
the day, but ultimately this is what the Civil
War as all about. That and the right, as the
south saw it, to unilaterally leave the union,
even by force if necessary with no one's
permission but that of their respective State
Many of you will wonder how this is relevant
to day, in our 21st century world. After all,
while much of the southern spirit does live
on, no meaningful movement towards succession
is evident. Moreover the slavery issue has
long been dealt with. So why bring this up,
you may ask? That is a good question. I hope I
answer it to your satisfaction. None of the
historical comparisons are going to be exact
or even be outwardly distinguishable. But a
deeper look at the issues facing the US today
and the US back in the mid 1800's I think is
Today, not all together unlike the months
and years just prior to the onset of the
American civil war, There is a tremendous
economic and social divide in the nation. One
that worsens with each and every passing year.
We see entire communities that more and more
have a siege mentality as a result of
disgraceful economic conditions, deep,
enduring and even growing racial disparities
and prejudice, increasingly extra-legal and
unconstitutional law enforcement activities on
the general population, as well as strange and
inexplicable actions by federal authorities
that tyrannize Americans - from organic
farmers to ranchers, to journalist and
activists. There is mounting resentment at
many actions taken by the US government, or
rather some of its agents that is feeding a
fire that grows with each and every passing
year. The groups listed here - some have
violent proclivities, others do not. These
groups often form around political wedge
issues. They show a deep and perhaps
un-repairable cultural divide that is now the
very essence of 21st century America.
Finally for those of you who may not fully
understand why I use the term Balkanization it
is because for the most part it applies.
Balkanization can be best described as a
process that devolves a central cultural and
political identity into smaller and more
cohesive groups. The term comes from what
happened to the Balkans after the break up of
the Ottoman Empire.. In short, where there was
'one', there would soon be many and usually
they would be at each others throats.
Balkan Group 1: People of Color
This group can be found particularly in poor
communities and with those communities of
color. The powder keg of discontent is real.
While none of the following attacks so far has
been blamed on anyone, it would be instructive
to note that these attacks have all the
hallmarks of terrorism. We have seen arson,
robberies, and even today in the news we have
seen suspicious bombings
in NY and a Bomb exploded
in New Jersey. We also saw a knife
stabbing that appears to be linked to ISIS.
On top of that a key and strategically
important pipeline was cut that provides a
major portion of Gasoline to the East coast of
the US. Just keep in mind the riots and racial
unrest we have seen over the past couple of
While the prevailing narrative will attempt
to link all of these attacks as foreign
directed attacks, the truth will be
considerably more complex. We have seen
considerable headway made by terrorist and
extremist groups such as ISIS in to the poorer
and forgotten parts of American society. The
problem is not a little one and is being
clearly identified by many inside and outside
of the US intelligence community
(previous link is from a Muslim Site, but is
particularly informative, if brief). The
problem is multifaceted and so far has yet to
be effectively addressed. But suffice it to
say, that decades of neglect in many Black
communities, the lack of suitable employment
for many of her young men, the lack of other
opportunities to participate positively in
American society by virtue of their race and
present economic conditions has created the
perfect breeding ground for violent
fanaticism. This is the exact same process we
have seen in places like Nigeria (Boko Haram)
Yemen (AQAP), Afghanistan (Taliban) etc.
Downtrodden people keep getting their faces
rubbed in the dirt by a corrupt government,
resentment builds as does the anger. Terrorist
recruiters call for the oppressed to rally
around the Islamic flag and throw off the
chains of their oppressors and then you have
your 'ISIS inspired' terrorist or terrorist
Their vision for America? An
Islamic state with Sharia law.
Now this is a vast oversimplification of what
most people of color want, I know that. Most
don't at all. My point is a very
different one. The more people like this are
legally, socially and economically
marginalized, the more you feed the fires of
radical Islam right here stateside and before
many of you reactionaries get your face all
knotted up in anger, go and look at the race
of the majority of those Americans who left
the country to go and aid ISIS (excellent
link). This is not a narrative our
leaders want out in the media - it's a
political hot potato.
Do you really think that marginalization is
going to stop? I am realistic. I don't think
so. I think it will accelerate under a Clinton
or Trump administration.
That is why I say this is one to watch because
no one wants to deal with this
political hot potato least of all America's
sold-out Black leadership.
No, what people of color really want is a
fair shake - a real truly fair shake
and the system is set up to make sure they don't
That is why I say.... watch radical Islam take
root in this part of America.
Balkan Group 2: Blue Collar
The anger in this community is not often
talked about as much as it was in the days of
the Oklahoma City bombing, when the FBI issued
a few reports describing the terrorist threat
coming from far right Christians and other
religiously motivated violence. The groups in
that report were predominately White in
membership. One report that is available on
the web is the Project
Megiddo report, done by the FBI. The
concern about these groups is probably just as
high, given the last few armed stand offs we
have had over the past few years, the Bundy
standoff being the best known. But a lesser
known threat is coming also from the
radicalization of White Americans.
Growing discontent over the direction the
nation is now taking with this group has no
better piece of evidence of its political
depth than what we have seen with the rise of
Donald Trump. Millions of these Americans have
lost good paying jobs, lost portions of their
retirement and the trends that brought these
tragedies about are more firmly fixed in place
under this President that the last one. This
is creating significant resentment. Their
vision - A more 'old shool' America of Apple
Pie and Ball games, 30 years hard work
followed by retirement kind of America.. These
are your 'wave the flag' kind of Americans but
many of them harbor a deep but often secret
resentment for people of color, Blacks in
particular as well as Latino's, who are viewed
as job stealers.
Many may not know this but Texas has a very
large Muslim population. Texas you ask? Yes, Texas. Why
there you may rightly ask? The answer to that
one is very easy and can be summed up on one
word. Oil. Many American oilmen are exposed to
Islamic doctrine and teachings when they do
work in oil rich nations. Some convert. Mind
you, in some cases the 'conversion' may be
more superficial and done in order to satisfy
business acquaintances and those who hand out
those contracts in places like Saudi Arabia.
But the simple fact is, Islam has a strong
presence in many parts of the country.
Now in Texas, the kinds of radicalization that
may be transpiring in more traditionally
depressed communities may not be evident, but
they too have their own vision for America, at
least some do. A far more Islam Friendly
America with elements of Sharia law. There are
both Sunni and Shia sects in Texas.
But the idea of the old White Privilege cannot
be ignored in the vast majority of this group.
Many who support Trump are look for that kind
of 'Old Time' America.
They are not concerned about issues of race
and are more concerned about their jobs and
retirement, which are being gutted across
Balkan Group 3: Liberal and Progressive
These Americans tend to reject religion but
will use it if it suits their political needs.
This group of Americans has considerable
support in the political establishment (both
left and right) and should not be seen as any
kind of threat to that order as for the most
part, they are a key part of that existing
order. They support many of the trends brought
into being from the not too distant past
- abortion on demand (federally funded),
the removal of religion from public life, they
support of most forms of the sexual
revolution, as well as the drug revolution and
seek to create an America where right and
wrong and morality are guided by a new
intelligentsia of (for lack of a better word)
selfish, utilitarian hedonists, who believe
taking life (like the unborn) because of the
economic inconvenience it causes a women is
the new 'good'.
This group often includes people who
practice various forms of witchcraft,
occultism and even satanism. Consequently the
'hatred' of religion so often expressed is
often more motivated from religious bigotry or
the economic harm traditional religion has
done to their respective industries (ie, the
abortion industry) than anything else. While
they will decry a war in Iraq and the death
toll there, it's a cheap hypocritical outrage
that refuses to acknowledge the blood staining
their own hands. Their vision? - To move
America 'past' God' and its constitution and
'progress' America to the enlightenment that
existed in places like Sodom where pleasure
ruled. Thus, having any 'old fashioned' moral
code is viewed as a threat to the epicurean
social proclivities and nihilistic economic
order of the day they hope will dawn. It will
be a world where the 'wanted' will live well
and the unwanted will be quietly eliminated
- if not in the abortion clinic, than in
the prisons or by clandestine medical means.
In the end, only those they deem worth of life
will be allowed to have rights within a new
society that is already being slowly erected,
but in ways only one in ten-thousand can see.
Their vision; To make a futuristic, amoral
utilitarian America the reality for those
fortunate enough to be deemed worthy to enjoy
Balkan Group 4: Immigrants With Money
This is a key group to watch as they gain
more and more economic and political clout in
Washington. Islamic groups, Hindu Groups,
Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, each of these
groups are learning to game the American
political system and the surest way to game it
is to put copious amounts of money into
political coffers. These groups defy any
single description as each has its own agenda
but it is safe to say that they want to keep
and increase their rights and economic
standing in the nation.
Balkan Group 5: Immigrants with
Those with an Islamic background are prime
targets for this.
Balkan Group 5: Government Officials
This is indeed a key group in the
Balkanization of America as it is often their
policies that have created the very
environment of Balkanization we are slowly
beginning to see in America. The free trade
deals, the bailouts, the job losses, the
unequal application of laws on people of
color, the trillion dollar wars few
understand. And then there are the debts the
real and mounting debts. This too is a group
and while it is safe to say that most seek to
keep some kind of continuity of government and
to stall the process of Balkanization, it is
also safe to say that whatever methods they
will use to forestall it, will not deal with
the underlying issues for it is often the
amplification of those issues that puts money
in their donors pockets.
But others in government have their own
agenda. Some seek many of the same things
those with ties to terrorist seek, placing the
capstone of Islam over America. Others have a
vested interest in elevating Chinese influence
in America, for their own perceived narrow
economic interests. These interests are often
at high or even top political levels. They
often see many of the Orwellian tools created
by government as a means to control the masses
and be a bulwark against them when they
discover the real effect of the policies they
implement.. They know they will create a
backlash, perhaps violent when it is
discovered that the word 'sell out' has a
deeper and personal meaning for Americans who
chose not to know what they government has
been up to.
Balkan Group 6
A Christians Reaction
I think the process of Social and political
balkanization in America is too far along to
reverse or forestall. Moreover I think that
foreign governments and non-state actors will
use each of these groups to varying degree's
1 Advance their respective
2 Destabilize the nation when needed
3 Take as much control and wealth over and
from the nation as possible with the aid of
So what I see is considerable political
tension ahead coupled with some level of
political violence. I do not under any
circumstances desire it, but like Sam Houston,
the governor of Texas before the War between
the states began said, I see where this
all leads. I will recall his words as he
opposed the succession movement of the South,
though he was from it and was from a State
that was part of it.. His words were strangely
“Let me tell you what is coming.
After the sacrifice of countless millions of
treasure and hundreds of thousands of lives,
you may win [but] I doubt it. I tell you
that, while I believe with you in the
doctrine of states rights, the North is
determined to preserve this Union [and] when
they begin to move in a given direction,
they move with the steady momentum and
perseverance of a mighty avalanche; and what
I fear is, they will overwhelm the
South” - Sam Houston
Sam saw what was coming and knew the South
would lose. He as not the only one. Many other
southerners were of the same mind but were
drowned out by the Southern patriotic
non-sense of the day. Reading Mary
Chesnut's Diary gives us a good
appreciation for the pro-war sentiments of the
days just before, during and towards the end
of the war.
How should we act in the times I think will
soon be upon us? Before I answer that let me
start out by saying that nothing I have seen
or heard from either Presidential candidate
causes me to believe that the dangerous trends
that have already been set in motion will not
accelerate considerably over the next four
years. This is why I am writing this to you
today. The continued Balkanization of America
along economic, racial, religious and social
lines will only accelerate without leadership
dedicated to addressing root causes rather
Also I think it important that I think that
the process of Balkanization will also be
accelerated as the nation moves to deal with
the real probability of a some kind of debt
default. That default may take many forms (ie,
negative rates, skyrocketing taxes, money that
becomes worth less and less) and will never to
described to the people as being what it
- default. But that is what it will be. When
it happens the economic troubles that will
ensue will be felt by all. The economic aspect
to all of this is likely to be both a key
cause of serious conflict as well as part of
the result of the crisis I see coming.
Christians should not engage in violence nor
behave in a way that brings discredit to Jesus
Christ and the gospel. To take up arms against
one group based upon some political or social
controversy is not only not Christian, it is
frowned upon. Paul makes it clear that a
Christians warfare is not with swords, knives
and if he were alive today, he would also say
guns and pipe bombs. No, this is the language
of this world and far too often the language
of those who hate the Lord and his gospel.
The Apostle here is telling us what are
weapons are and are not. We are of a different
kingdom and brotherhood and while we must live
down here among the lost, we are not
one of them. Consider what John said about the
last days and the strong admonition he used.
though we walk in the flesh, we do
not war according to the flesh
(for the weapons of our warfare are not
of the flesh, but mighty before God to
the casting down of strongholds),
casting down imaginations, and every
high thing that is exalted against the
knowledge of God, and bringing every
thought into captivity to the obedience
(2Co 10:3-5 - ASV)
any man is for captivity, into captivity
he goeth: if any man shall kill with the
sword, with the sword must he be killed.
Here is the patience and the faith of the
(Rev 13:10 - ASV)
This does not say you will lose your soul,
just that you are asking for trouble (in the
form of death) if you take up arms in those
days. The days when the first Beast (with 10
horns) rises to global prominence.
How will I behave? I have developed a rare
gift for emotional detachment and will employ
that gift whenever possible. I did not say
coldness or being uncaring, just that I won't
let myself get riled up or angry over the evil
and stupid things the sons of men do to each
other. I am not shocked by dogs who bark,
birds who chirp or men who do evil, as in each
case, there just seems to be a natural
propensity for these things. I will not lose
sleep over them. It is the way things are and
I cannot change them. I can do whatever good I
can while I can, lead others to Christ, help
others who know God to keep their faith, stand
with Jesus, go forward in him and not look
This is why I am not going to be depressed
when America falls. I will be sad, yes, but
America has made her choices and most of them
bad. She must eat the fruit of her own doings
and this I think is where I think many
Christians will miss the boat. America as
great as she is, or was, is just another
transient earthly power that will fall just
like every one before her, under the weight of
her own imperial arrogance and corruption. Can
anything be done for her now?
No, I don't think so and trying to save her
now is will be like trying to cause the rain
to fall back up to the clouds or making a bird
bark or a dog chirp. These things are natural,
we cannot change them. Men are evil and are
given over to it and as a result, they will be
judged for it.
Pause and consider.

Christian Today looks at Xi, the Human Rights
picture and Religious Freedom. This story
(link) is essentially based upon the report
done by the U.S. Congressional-Executive
Commission on China (CECC). It goes into
detail about the situation in China today. Let
me cut and paste a bit from the site and them
provide you with a link
Commission on China (CECC) Chairmen U.S.
Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) and U.S.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the
Commission’s bipartisan 2016 Annual Report,
which provides detailed analysis of 19 issue
areas regarding human rights and the rule of
law, and offers specific recommendations on
how progress can be made on these issues
through the broader U.S.-China
relationship. The full report can be
accessed on the CECC’s website (http://www.cecc.gov/publications/annual-reports/2016-annual-report).
“The Chinese government’s human rights
record is utterly deplorable, continuing a
downward trend over the past three
years. It is a dark time for China’s
reformers, dissidents, and rights defenders
as they face escalating repression and
conditions deteriorated again last year,” said
Representative Smith. “The
Chinese government took extraordinary steps
to decimate the ranks of human rights
lawyers, crush independent civil society,
and expand control over the Internet and the
press. Coercive population control policies
continued to mandate the size of Chinese
families and contribute to one of the
world’s worst human trafficking problems.
New regulations will likely expand
repression for religious communities, as the
“sinicization” campaign aims to further
politicize religious life. Tibetans,
Uyghurs, and North Koreans seeking asylum
were less safe last year—facing detentions,
torture, and deportations. Detained
Falun Gong practitioners, and other
prisoners, were reportedly victims of the
horrible crime of organ harvesting. Hong
Kong continued to experience erosions to the
guaranteed freedoms and autonomy it was
promised by Beijing. President Xi Jinping
has run roughshod over human rights and the
U.S. government has only responded tepidly.
It is time to recognize that the economic
engagement strategy has failed, and new
policy approaches must be developed that
link our values and interests. A new U.S.
policy approach that champions individual
liberties is owed to the thousands of
suffering prisoners of conscience in China,
as documented by the thousands of cases in
the Commission’s Political Prisoner
Database. And, we owe it to future
generations of Americans, whose security and
prosperity will depend on a stable
U.S.-China relationship that is more open
and transparent; free of censorship and
coercion; based on adherence to universal
standards; and, hopefully, increasingly
“The Commission’s report paints an
undeniably bleak situation of the
deterioration of human rights and the rule
of law in China, with especially grave
consequences for civil society, religious
believers, human rights lawyers, and labor
activists,” said Senator Rubio.
“Beijing has become increasingly brazen in
exerting its extraterritorial reach in the
past year, as evidenced by the outrageous
abductions of the Hong Kong
booksellers. Fifteen years after China
gained entry to the World Trade
Organization, it’s time we take stock of our
approach and recognize that despite what
proponents at the time believed would
happen, China has in fact used the
international rules-based system to fuel
vast economic growth, while further
restricting freedom and increasing
repression. The stakes could not be higher
for the Christian pastor unjustly imprisoned
and devastated by the loss of his church,
the rights lawyer languishing under house
arrest and forced to confess to crimes she
did not commit, and the Hong Kong student
activists fighting for their city’s
future. This report is dedicated to
these people and their aspirations—it is
vital that they know the United States,
despite its economic relationship with
China, will stand with that country’s
reformers and dissidents and press the
Chinese Government and Communist Party to
respect basic human rights and uphold the
rule of law, just as we expect of any

going to tell you before hand so none of you can
say you were not warned BEFORE HAND. Foreign
nations give millions of dollars in campaign
donations to our leaders because they know it
pays. Time and again, they have witnessed how well
this works. It's why they keep bribing (legally)
our elected officials with campaign
donations. If you want something, even
something that is totally illegal to do, give a
lot of money to the right people, they will get it
done. Dropping arms to terrorists, getting a bailout

American politicians (but not all) won't do for

How does this play out? If Americans put this two
party monstrosity back in power in November, which
they will how does this play out? Let me give you
a for instance - a best case scenario some who are
paying our leaders would LOVE to see.
One day, you and your significant other will be
sitting down one evening watching the TV, sipping
some wine and chomping on some Doritos, watching
the latest episode of your favorite TV show and
you will get a knock on the door and be told by
armed men to come with them.
They will have a van waiting for you outside with
more armed men outside it holding the door open
You will get in and be taken away.
A foreign (Saudi/Chinese - whoever paid the most
to American politicos) family will take your home
because you will not be coming back.
You will arrive at a work facility for
'criminals'. You will never be told your crime.
You will note that the guards who watch you will
be Chinese and Arabs with a couple of Russians and
Cubans with them. More and more around the nation
this will occur.
You will make gadgets for Chinese and Arab
companies 14 hours a day. If you don't meet your
quota, you will be punished... severely

committed no crime. even if you are the most loyal

eyes of most Americans focused on football and

enormously successful, being able to steal, build
and field a 5th Generation stealth fighter based
upon stolen data faster than the US was. We can
only guess the other technology they have stolen
and incorporated into their weapons systems and
other industrial processes. But that was only one
part of their US based intelligence operations.
The other part was their ability to penetrate the
American political process, turn key American
officials to push policies that favored China and
undermine or put a stop to US polices that
undermined China. They had and still have many top
people in Government who are paid for Chinese

No one will believe what they are seeing because
most people think our law enforcement people will

no matter how
damning will ever lead to a prosecution of
key power players

How? Blackmail - they blackmail or threaten key

In fact, there are those who are charged with
double checking and investigating key people in
government. But the system has become so corrupted
that I think they did away with it or made some
fixes to it. It worked like this but again, I am
not so sure it still does.
Let's say the head of the DOJ was not qualified to
hold his job but was able to hide that fact from
the Senate during confirmation. These people are
charged with making sure that the Senate knew this
was the case. The problem? Sometimes they did and
sometimes they did not pass the data on to the
Senate or other key bodies. When they did not they
had a reason but not one to secure the nation, but
to protect their own criminal rackets. What do I
mean? Let me give you a real world example with

TBFC has been engaged in serious money laundering,
opening up accounts illegally, using those
accounts to launder drug money, Defrauding
depositors, insider trading... the gamut of
crimes. The DOJ is on to them and is looking in
the matters with vigor. Suddenly the head of the
DOJ changes his tune and no matter how much
evidence his underlings give him, he won't
prosecute. What just happened? The files (brown
envelope) that this agency should have passed on
to the Senate at confirmation, just landed on the
head of the DOJ's desk, with a warning that if he
does not backoff his investigation, all of the
major media that they control (which is most of
it) will run this story - front and center

yourself this question. Who or what is going to

they get control of key federal agencies, as they
already are? Congress? Did you know that

to communicate with your congressman via email or
snail mail, they will intercept the message and
see to it they never get it? Yes, the NSA has
abused it's cyber-security powers to do just that
on numerous occasions. They just say your email
complaining about that NSA spy bill (the NSA
opposed) had a 'virus' and was deleted from the
server. The CIA? They can and do interfere with
the US mail and your major private carrier

not what is legal or illegal that matters, it's
what they can get away

countrymen, it's hard for me to have much sympathy
for the kinds of things that will come if there is
not general awakening to what is going on.

hot button issues and partisan non-sense and look
at who is buying
from under you. RIGHT
Much of this stuff is right in your face and yet
most Americans just can't contextualize the depth
and reality of the corruption that has engulfed
Washington... BOTH PARTIES.
I will say this to all Christians who are awake
and know the times. The time to listen to God
about where you should be is now. Be sure you are
where he wants you to be. I did an update for my
insiders called 'Thinking the Unthinkable'
yesterday to help give some key issues today
I ask all who know our Lord to not panic and most
of all, don't try and convince people what some of
you are slowly starting to see and understand. For
many Americans, I am convinced that God
himself is blinding their eyes
. He has made
up his mind to deal with the perverse, greedy and
violent spirit that has come over America and will
allow them to see. He has something
prepared for them. Thus, this message is only for
those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
Don't be like the lost. Get right and STAY Right
with Jesus Christ, do as he commands you and know
that the days are evil and like the most deceptive
evil, it decks itself in beauty and fine sounding,
soothing words. These are days where the mystery
of iniquity is starting to show itself more and

Like Isaiah, who chided the people of his day for
making idols and graven images, many Americans
have set up an image in our hearts and minds
- it speaks, see's and more and more, it also
hears (smart TV's with microphones and camera's).
Its called TV and that image (more and more run by
deceiving spirits) more and more is driving

Make the heart of this people fat, and make

Consider what the Angel told Daniel.

and they that turn many to righteousness
as the stars for ever and ever.
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and
seal the book, even to the time of the
many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall

O my lord, what shall be the issue of
these things? And he said,
Go thy way, Daniel; for the words are shut up
and sealed till the time of the end.
Many shall purify themselves, and make
themselves white, and be refined; but the
wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the
wicked shall understand; but they that are
wise shall understand.

if you read the papers and their spin on the

the statement that was released that all this

actually blame Russia, but what they believe
to be from a Russian IP address and a Russian

Here is a snippet from the official
Some states have also recently seen
scanning and probing of their
election-related systems, which in most
cases originated from servers operated by a
Russian company. However, we are not
now in a position to attribute
this activity to the Russian Government. The
USIC and the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) assess that it would be extremely
difficult for someone, including a
nation-state actor, to alter actual ballot
counts or election results by cyber attack
or intrusion - DNI/DHS

perhaps they are. If so, it would only be
proportional payback for what we
did to them on a couple of occasions in
the past and please don't be naive - we
have and will continue to interfere in the
overthrow the leaders of democratically
elected governments that we don't like.
Brothers, what we have done to others will
slowly come back round to us and we have done
some despicable things to other nations.
However, we must ensure our elections
are secure. The main problem that I see is
that while there is this manufactured outrage
at these relatively inconsequential
cyber-probes, that conveniently bolsters the
ongoing and highly coordinated anti-Russian
narrative we have seen for years now in the US
and its controlled press, there is none about
the other way foreign
nations are interfering in our
In short, the DNI and DHS are making a lot of
noise about a problem that will have little
real effect on the outcome of the election,
while ignoring the issue that will certainly
determine who will sit in the White House.
What is that?
Let me say this as well. While everyone
assumes that the Russians want Trump and would
tilt the elections towards him, that narrative
does not really play out if
one digs past the emotionalized
headlines meant to sway the ignorant.
Brothers our provoking Russia these past
years is not
going to get Putin to 'surrender' and
kiss Uncle Sam's feet. If we keep pushing - It
is going to mean war - guaranteed.
Those Russians are a proud and noble people
and take their national security and their
place in the world with the same seriousness
as we do. Our leaders would do well to keep
that fact in mind. That and the fact that
despite the sanctions and pain the US has
inflicted on Russia, it has not weakened Putin
as US 'analysts' (if you can call them
that) thought it would, but strengthened his
hand considerably at home.
Brothers, I am no dilatant when it comes to
Russia and what they are what they are like,
their history their military/political
doctrine and what they are capable of. I was
looking at the Russians from inside the US
intelligence community before and after the
fall of the Soviet Union and have followed
them carefully ever since. This is also true
of the Ukraine.
I am not some political hack trying to make
points to win a position in a new
administration. I am not being paid by anyone
and no one 'feeds me' information. I am no
'kiss ass' or propagandist. There are not many
real Russian analysts these days
and this has been Obama's problem. He did not
listen to any Russian experts when he embarked
on this really stupid national security policy
of institutionalized Russophobia. The ones who
really knew Russia, they were called in (ie,
Henry K.) but were ignored and after the
decisions had already pretty much been made.
Now we are in a far more dangerous position
that ever before with weapons likely on hair
trigger alert. More here.
Brothers, this is what happens when the good
people leave government (or are run out or
murdered out) and the bad remains. You get
really bad policy that one day could kill us
My point is not to say that one side is right
and the other wrong. Rather it is to state
with clarity that our policies are creating a
situation where they are forcing Russia to
react, which was the plan all along.
When the US instituted the bloody coup in
Ukraine placing violent anti-Russian
Neo-Nazi's in charge of a nation right on
Russians border, the hope was that Russia
would invade Ukraine so that they could give
Americans a narrative that it was 'unprovoked
aggression' and get the world to condemn
Russia, raise the anger of the American people
who would be dutifully given half the truth
(the part that demonized Russia but downplayed
the violent American provocation) to further
justify either direct military action or a
significant bolstering of NATO ($$$).
That was the hoped for result. Putin did not
take the bait, but he almost did.
We would not accept a hostile government on
our border installed by a geopolitical foe and
neither would the Russians, but they had to
bide their time and choose his own ground to
fight the covert attack against them in the
This is what this is all about. The Americans
are looking to beat the BRICS and scare up
some justification and money for NATO to keep
themselves fully integrated into the EU
defense architecture, something that the
Europeans have made plain they want to detach
themselves from and have more independent
foreign and defense policy.
They are trying to make a 'Frankenstein' out
of Putin to scare Europe into maintaining the
status quo. Many Eastern EU nations have taken
the bait and went into hysteria from the
coordinated US propaganda effort. But the more
developed nations are not buying it. They have
dealt with the Americans for decades (with our
bases all through the EU) and know we can no
more be trusted than the Russians. The NSA
scandal was merely the icing on the manure
cake we were baking in Europe for years. Many
in the EU aren't going to bite into that one
again. That cake may look like chocolate...
but it ain't!!
But I see other hands at work here who would
benefit significantly if the US and Russia
went to war.
Our world has enough problems and provoking
Russia at at time like this when the world has
so many other pressing issues shows a deeply
disturbed mentality that permeates the US
foreign policy establishment.
We have turned 60 years of international law
and good will that we helped build and create
on its head - all in the quest for a
global dominance we can no longer afford or
even manage effectively.
We can do better, but we won't as long as the
two party system rules Washington. Both seem
determined to ruin America and our standing in
the world for a foreign campaign donation and
some crooked defense contracts.

Cities that were in fiscal trouble were able
to manage federal grants. What they found is
that because of fiscal restraints and
workforce reductions, there were some issues
that need to be addressed.
Similar to the federal and state
sectors, local governments are facing
long-term fiscal pressures. In cases of
fiscal crisis, municipalities may be
required to make significant cuts to
personnel that may impact their oversight
of federal grants. GAO was asked to review
the oversight of federal grants received
by municipalities in fiscal crisis. This
report (1) identifies challenges that
selected municipalities in fiscal crisis
experienced when managing federal grants
and steps taken by those municipalities;
(2) reviews the monitoring processes that
federal agencies used to oversee selected
grants to selected municipalities; and (3)
examines actions the White House Working
Group on Detroit and selected federal
agencies took to assist municipalities in
For this review, GAO conducted
site visits to four municipalities in
fiscal crisis: Detroit, Michigan; Flint,
Michigan; Camden, New Jersey; and
Stockton, California. GAO focused on eight
grant programs administered by DHS, HUD,
Justice, and DOT. The basis for selecting
these grant programs included dollar

amazing to me the parallels we see today if
you know what to look for. The
parallels are there if you really want to see
them for what they are, are a repeat of a
history that many today are trying very
hard even today to re-write and hide
their own wicked
Nazi-loving acts. Internet searches more
and more try and make Jews into Nazi's and
priase those who massacre them. But here in
America more and more it is the Black man that
is the new Jew. He can drive down the raod,
get pulled over and get
shot in cold blood and the cops go free.
These are the kinds of things that happened to
Jews in Germany. They too were persecuted by
those in authority and the system never went
after, but rather promoted the persecutors.
The history of Kristalnact is instructive.
Dear readers it was commonpalce to see Jews
beaten on the streets scrubbing sidewalks in
Nazi Germany. My point is not to say that things
are nearly as bad for Black folks as it was
during the Holocaust for Jews. My point is
different. The same methodologies are slowly
being used on Black folks and they don't
understand what or who the real enemy is. Sure
racism that is the knee jerk emotional
'fallback' word used all too often, but
that is a vast oversimplification of a much more
far reaching and economically driven
problem. Black America does not understand (nor
is she inclined to as long as the President is
Black) just what she is really up against and
what it will mean in a world that is already, in
the view of our elite, critically
overpopulated. In the view of these
men, Abortion has helped reduce the population
of the racially undesirable (Blacks), but more
direct methods are going to be employed one day.
Yet Black folks still are in a daze. They
know something is wrong but thus far have not
demonstrated the emotional capacity of grasping
the problem in its totality as long as the
pigmentation of Obama's skin stays dark. But
without a more complete grasp of these things
and more effective and intellectually more
coherent solutions than a political reflex and
actions that contain far more depth that it
collectively has been capable of demonstrating
thus far, something just as ugly as the
Holocaust will arise.
Kristallnacht changed the nature
of persecution from economic, political,
and social to physical with beatings,
incarceration, and murder; the event is
often referred to as the beginning of the
Holocaust. In the words of historian
Max Rein in 1988, "Kristallnacht
came...and everything was changed."
While November 1938 predated overt
articulation of "the Final Solution",
it foreshadowed the genocide to come.
Around the time of Kristallnacht,
the SS newspaper Das Schwarze Korps
called for a "destruction by swords and
flames." At a conference on the day after
the pogrom, Hermann Göring
said: "The Jewish problem will reach its
solution if, in any time soon, we will be
drawn into war beyond our border—then it
is obvious that we will have to manage a
final account with the Jews."
Specifically, the Nazis managed to achieve
in Kristallnacht all the theoretical
targets they set for themselves: confiscation of Jewish
belongings to provide finances for the military
buildup to war,
separation and isolation of the
Jews, and most importantly, the move from
policy of discrimination
to one of physical damage, which began that
night and continued until the end of World War II. The
event showed the public attitude was not
solidly behind the perpetrators.
Many Germans at the time found the pogroms troubling,
because they equated them with the days of
the SA street rule and lawlessness. The
British Embassy in Berlin and British Consular offices
throughout Germany received many protests
and expressions of disquiet from members of
the German public about the anti-Jewish
actions of the time. - Wikipedia

Now, let me let you in on a secret. The US
government and its secret internet site holds
(there are thousands of them many very big
names) don't like the world to know what they
are doing to Black folks in prison. So when you
go to a site that is supposed to have pictures
of such things in the Public domain, they go to
great lengths to keep
them off the servers. In fact, they go you

when I searched the same terms on the same site,
the porn was more disgusting - they had a man
masturbating in the results.

narrative. They may not be able to silence
everyone, but they can keep make the truth very
difficult to find and present to the
Listen up because this is a key problem. It has
become politically incorrect to talk about the
wholly disproportional disparity in Abortion
rates among young black women. Mention it
to Black folks and a litany of politically
correct diatribes come flowing out of the mouth
of Black apologists and the sock puppets the
mega corporations put in the
media as their 'leaders'.
Who put the idea in the minds of Black people
that killing up a large swath of a whole
generation of Blacks is 'good' and must be
defended and VOTED FOR? Think it maybe a guy who
wears a white sheet and burns crosses at night
and wears a swastika tattoo? Did that
ever occur to Black America? How has a people
become so brainwashed they defend
rather than are outraged by these things? Go
back and find out what
is behind it, who is paying

supporting this new holocaust (I use that
word with care) with money.
This is not rocket science. This
is common sense but as long as Black America has
a blindfold and keeps their brain in permanent
idle, the racists have 18 more months (this was written some time ago
- ed) to put their plans in motion
while Black folks politically defend their own
extermination. These racists must be splitting
their sides laughing at our own complicity in
our own extermination.
And laughing at and plotting against us
Why? Why would God allow this?
they have chosen their own ways, and
their soul delighteth in their
abominations. I also will choose
their delusions, and will bring
their fears upon them;
because when I called,
none did answer;
when I spake, they did not hear:
but they did evil before mine eyes,
and chose that in which I delighted not.
I really hope some of my Black brethren get
their act together and find the road back to the
God who freed us from our chains before they
find themselves being starved in some prison for
a the 'crime' of being Black and breathing at
the same time.
Brothers, if I sound totally different that the
typical Black site and the usual 'black
narratives' you see in so many sites and on TV
it's because I want to fix these
problems, not perpetuate them just to gain an
audience and 'sound black' by making excuses for
or totally ignoring these things. We have too
much of that kind of sycophancy masquerading as
thought in Black America. Get past the outrage
and get to the deeper roots of our problems,
political, economic, cultural and spiritual.
I can tell you this - If you keep listing
to the same leaders with the same non-solutions
who are sending us backwards, we will keep going
backwards, implementing the same non-solutions
while listening to the same leaders.
Let us as a people make a change for the better
and if we cannot do it collectively, then I
exhort you in the name of the Lord to do it
individually. Get right with God, praise
and support life, not death; peace not war,
hope, not hate - seek truth rather than
spreading popular and 'socially correct' Black
myths - think for yourself. Don't make
the same critical mistakes so many of our people
are making - investigate things for yourself

mentality to befriend and learn from. Be

not a bad thing. Like attracts like.
We as a people have lost our way - most don't
really realize it yet, but these cop shootings
are awaking something in many of us. But we must
move beyond the anger and the protest and come
up with solutions that will work
for us - and voting Democrat for 5 decades has
only sent us backwards...

is a merchant, the balances of deceit are
in his hand: he loveth to oppress.
And Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I
have found me out substance:
in all my labours they shall find none
iniquity in me that were sin.
We start this section of Hosea with the
Lord's assessment of the Northern Kingdom.
It is not a very complimentary one. God
calls them a merchant. That being a
businessman, but not just a businessman,
one who practices deceit in his dealings.
The word merchant here is a rather
Actually the word is translated 93 times as
Canaan, three times as 'merchant' and once as
'traffic' in the King James Version. The sense
here is probably referring to both, for the
Phoenicians (Canaanites) were known for their
trading. They were famous for it throughout the
whole Mediterranean in those days. They
were also famous for their ship building, both
warships and merchant vessels and it was with
those ships she traded in the ancient world.
From H3665; humiliated; Kenaan, a son of
Ham; also the country inhabited by him: -
Canaan, merchant, traffick.
So the idea here was that the word here
used was probably was lingusitically
juxtaposed often to mean a merchant. We
have many of the same kind of expressions
that are often ethnically derived today.
They are not always pejorative in nature,
though often are - when we think of
certain sports and music types, we think
of Black folks, when we think of banking
today, we think of Jews. The history of
the Jewish people in the Middle ages in
Europe left them little opportunity for
honest work because of racial/religious
discrimination. But money-lending
was something they were allowed to do. For
many Black Americans we see the same
problems but in sports and
entertainment, they are allowed to
in many banking circles today, Jewish
people are often quite prominent. So the
word here was meant to show that like the
Canaanites, Ephraim had become a dishonest
merchant, using false balances and weights
to cheat his customers.
are indeed abominations to God. You know,
when I read passages like that I ask
myself - my goodness given how so
much of American business is accomplished
with various methods of fraud and deceit
how can our nation stand? God was very
upset with Israel over these things and
yet we do many of the same things and you
know what? We look upon these things today
as perfectly natural. Even our money
system is one based on dishonest weights
and measures. This
very interesting piece I think
should help you understand what I am
referring to. These abominations are not
just part of our system here in the US,
they make up the fundamental economic
structure of the nation. In fact,
central banking is nothing more than institutionalized
fraud, the way it is practiced
today. In short, it's an abomination, but
like the abominations of ancient Israel,
or even the days of Noah or Sodom, no one
saw or thought that what they were doing
was evil or unjust. They thought their
abominable sexual practices, the way they
did business and their religious rituals
were just fine. God had other ideas.
People can be given over and their
conscience gets seared and they view wrong
as right and right as wrong and think
nothing of God nor the consequences of
their actions on others.
Divers weights, and divers measures,
both of them are alike abomination to
Divers weights are an abomination unto
and a false balance is not good.
The prophet makes comment that they also
love to oppress. Commerce and oppression
seem to go hand in hand. Wherever there is
great trade there is oppression. Look at
our world today, particularly in places
like Africa and Latin America. What do you
see? You see oppression. Wherever our
nation goes, one sees oppression. Take a look
at Honduras and get a little
perspective more here.
From the docks of NY harbor to the genesis
of the Teamsters to the backrooms of our
financial system, you will find that
oppression, murder and every evil work
follow where there is an abundance of
commerce. I don't want to digress here,
but simply put the prophet lines up three
things - Canaan/commerce (Phoenicians),
dishonest gain and oppression. They all
tend to go hand in hand in the latter
stages of spiritual degradation. It is
indeed an important
spiritual stronghold in the devils
kingdom. Hosea is laying this out to
Ephraim and lets him know that God is none
too pleased! May I
point you to this link and ask you
to pause and consider it in light of what
I just said and Revelation 17 and 18?
Then Ephraim says in self satisfaction
that he as become rich. He's got what I
call the 'I got mine' spirit and is
satisfied with the fruits of his bloody
and dishonest labor. This passage seems
too much like the scathing rebuke our Lord
made to the Church at Laodicea for me not
to mention it. That Church too was rich
and it did not think it needed anything.
'God is good to me, I am rich and
comfortable' - this is the sense I gather
from that passage in Revelation. They
viewed the amassing of material wealth as
a 'sign' of divine pleasure and approval.
Christ told them otherwise. He made it
plain that they were miserable, blind
naked and poor. The sense here is that
their wealth had blinded them to their
true spiritual state.
thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with
goods, and have need of nothing;
same sense here as it is in Hosea. Money
was and is a deceiver. It fooled them.
Riches are just that way. Did not
our Lord warn of the deceitfulness of
riches (Mat 13:22;
Mar 4:19)? Yes, people think that
riches are a sign of divine blessings -
but it's the devil's men and women who are
the ones with all the money these days.
How do they get it? By fraud, deceit and
violence and chances are real, real good
that a person who has a lot of money in
our world today, has his wealth built on
the shifting sands of these vices. They
led Ephraim astray and they will lead us
astray as well if we don't pay attention
to how we get that wealth and just what
our God wants us to do with it when we get
it. Albert Barnes has an excellent comment
on this passage here.
and knowest not that thou art wretched,
and miserable, and poor, and blind, and
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in
the fire, that thou mayest be rich;
and white raiment, that thou mayest be
clothed, and that the shame of thy
do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with
eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Ephraim said, Yet am I become rich -
Literally, “I am simply rich.” As if he
said, “the only result of all this, with
which the prophets charge me, is that ‘I
am become rich:’ and since God thus
prospers me, it is a sure proof that he is
not displeased with me, that ‘no iniquity’
can be ‘found in me;’” the ordinary
practical argument of men, as long as God
withholds His punishments, that their ways
cannot be so displeasing to Him. With the
people of this world, with its
politicians, in trade, it is the one
decisive argument: “I was in the right,
for I succeeded.”. - Albert Barnes
People with wealth point to it as that
sign of divine 'blessing' yet here is the
conundrum of their deceitfulness because
too often, that money is a reward for
doing abomination. Ephraim had found ways
of making money ("I have found me out
substance") and by their human toil and
reasoning were able to make some cash.
The lesson here is clear - riches and
wealth are not a sign of
divine blessings and those who trust in
them are in deep spiritual trouble and
will one day be deceived thereby.
I that am the LORD thy God from the land
here the Lord God refuses to cast off this
people for their crimes. He tells them
they will yet again dwell in
'tabernacles', almost certainly a
reference to the feast
of Tabernacles. This prophecy looks
at least partially to have been fulfilled
in the days of Nehemiah (Neh 8:17) and
will be later fulfilled on the last day (Zech 14:16).

are like signs and symbols. The first
three chapters of Hosea are a simlitude.
He took a wife as a sign as to how Israel
played the whore on the Lord. Ezekiel
laying on his side (Eze
4:4), Isiah going about naked and
barefoot (Isa 20:3).
These are similitudes and prophets were
known for them. Let's see what Gill has to
say about it, I think it pretty good.
A primitive root; to compare; by
implication to resemble, liken, consider:
- compare, devise, (be) like (-n), mean,
think, use similitudes.
and used similitudes by the
ministry of the prophets: or, "will
use similitudes" (d); for this is to be
understood, not of the types and figures
used by the Lord under the legal
dispensation, to represent spiritual things,
as the brasen serpent, passover lamb, manna,
and the sacrifices of the law; nor of the
similitudes used by the prophet Hosea,
taking a wife and children of whoredoms, to
set forth the case and condition of Israel,
and of the comparisons he makes of God, to a
lion, leopard, bear, &c. or by any other
of the former prophets; but of parables and
similitudes used in Gospel times; not only
such as Christ used himself, who seldom
spoke without a parable; see Mat_13:11; but
which he used by the ministry of his

that number will be a few, I think it will be a
vast swath of professing believers of those
days, who will engage in the very same sin that
Israel engaged in, in those days. Idolatry in
worshiping the image of the beast.
Hosea, after reminding the
Northern Kingdom that God has sent prophets
and men with visions to warn Israel of their
sins then asks the question -
rhetorical, "Is there Iniquity in Gilead"
Yes, and those who practice it are vanity.
Vanity is the word often used for worshiping
false gods (Isa 41:29
Those idols that they were worshiping were
vanity and they turned their worshipers into
the same thing. Let us remember that Gilead
was a city of refuge and of the priests
before the kingdom split in two. God does
not spare Gilgal either. In one place they
sacrifice to these strange gods and in the
other they built altars to them. The idea
here is that there were not just a couple of
them, but many. Here is how the JFB
commentary puts it and he does it very well.
altars are as heaps in the furrows--that
is, as numerous as such heaps: namely,
the heaps of stones cleared out of a
stony field. An appropriate image, as at
a distance they look like altars
(compare Hos_10:1, Hos_10:4; Hos_8:11).
As the third member in the parallelism
answers to the first, "Gilgal" to
"Gilead," so the fourth to the second,
"altars" to "vanity." The word "heaps"
alludes to the name "Gilgal," meaning "a
heap of stones." The very scene of the
general circumcision of the people, and
of the solemn passover kept after
crossing Jordan, is now the stronghold
of Israel's idolatry. - JFB
In the next passage the
Lord brings to remembrance a simple truth,
that Jacob was once a fugitive and had to
serve fourteen years in order to get his
wife. He had to keep Laban' sheep in order
to 'earn' Rachels hand. Padan (Genesis 48:7
located between the Tigris and Euphrates.
You can read more about the city/place here
. God brings
this up for a reason. Jacob went outside
of Cannan to marry, as he was commanded.
He chose to travel far, live a life of
hardship and only with his staff in his
hand, did he cross over Jordan (Gen 32:10). He also endured
hardship to win his wife, serving
seven years for one, and seven for the
one he really wanted. Jacob waited and
trusted God and was rewarded. It
took faith to do what he did.
But this new Generation, they were
were out frolicking in the groves
sacrificing to Baal. God then reminds
them of Moses, the prophet who led
them out of Egypt and later Joshua,
was the one who led them to inherit
the promise. The word translated
'preserved' appears to be an
allusion to the word kept as in 'he
kept sheep' showing how God kept
Israel even as Jacob kept sheep (JFB).
God kept Israel from many enemies and
through many trials and led them
safely to the land he promised them.
This is often how our walks are in the
Lord. We have to endure hardship and
difficulties, but if we are faithful
to the Lord, he is faithful to us. But
such faithfulness was not the case
with Hosea's wife, nor with the
generation to which Hosea preached. I
think here, God may be reminding
Israel, in a round about way the
humble origins of their people and
that it was God and his favor that
caused them to become what they were
as a nation and people. Then apostasy
and paganism set in and the rest is in
the books of the Prophets of Israel.
provoked him to anger most bitterly:
therefore shall he leave his
blood upon him, and his reproach
shall his Lord return unto him.
Yet despite all of the favor,
protection and love shown to Israel,
they provoked the Lord and made him
very, very angry. The next phrase
'leave his blood upon him' does not
translate well. The LITV says this
with a slight variance And He shall
leave his blood to him, and his
Lord shall turn his reproach to
says this "the
fault of innocent blood which
he shed shall return upon
him:'' The sense
here seems to be that the blood of
the innocents that was shed by the
Israelite's, God would require at
their hands - that blood would cry
out for blood and God, who had
been moved to great wrath and
anger at Israel's
consistent, unrepentant idolatry
and sins, God in this
instance, was not in a
particularly forgiving mood. His
Lord shall turn his reproach upon
him. This is an interesting phrase
as the term 'His Lord' shows that
God is still is the God of Israel,
even though they have rebelled
against him. God will demonstrate
his divine sovereignty. Yet some
think this is an allusion to the
Assyrian king who would come in

as an instrument of God's
We must not
become a reproach to the Lord
brothers. People were and are
watching and just like in the book
of Job, when Satan accused Job
before the Lord, we have enemies.
We must not give our enemies,
either here on earth or in the
spiritual realm any cause to
accuse us justly. This is where
Israel had failed the Lord. The
principle can also be found in the
book of Samuel with King David.
Albert Barnes makes this
observation in his excellent
commentary on this passage.
Those who rebel
against God, bring reproach on Him
by their sins, reproach Him by
their excuses for their sins
reproach Him in those whom He
sends to recall them from their
sins, reproach Him for chastening
them for their sins. All who sin
against the knowledge of God,
bring reproach upon Him by acting
sinfully against that knowledge.
So Nathan says to David, “Thou
hast given much occasion to the
enemies of God to blaspheme”
2Sa_12:14. The reproachful
words of the enemies of God are
but the echo of the opprobrious
deeds of His unfaithful servants.
The reproach is therefore, in an
special manner, “their reproach”
who caused it. All Israel’s
idolatries had this aggravation.
You know when reading
that I was struck by something that
happens in the last days when the
False Prophet vomits forth his
blasphemies and abominations.
Their worship of the calves
or of Baal or of any other gods of
the nations, was a triumph of the
false gods over God. Then, all sin
must find some plea for itself, by
impugning the wisdom or goodness
of God who forbad it. Jeroboam,
and Ephraim by adhering to
Jeroboam’s sin reproached God, as
though the going up to Jerusalem
was a hard service. “It is too
much for you to go up to
Jerusalem; Behold thy gods, O
Israel, which brought thee up out
of the land of Egypt.” : “It was
an open injury and reproach to
God, to attribute to dead lifeless
things those great and wonderful
things done by Him for them.” All
the reproach, which they, in these
ways, brought, or cast upon God,
he says, “his Lord shall return”
or “restore” to them. Their’s it
was; He would give it back to
them, as He says, “Them that honor
Me, I will honor; and they that
despise Me, shall be lightly
esteemed” 1Sa_2:30. - Albert Barnes
they worshiped the dragon who gave
authority to the beast;
and they worshiped the beast,
saying, Who is like the beast; who
is able to make war with it?
And a mouth speaking great
things and blasphemies was given
And authority to act forty two
months was given to it. And it
opened its mouth in
blasphemy toward God, to
blaspheme His name and His
tabernacle, and those
tabernacling in Heaven.
Could it be that the False Prophet and the
spirit of the beast begin to use those who
forsook the Lord for the 'mess of pottage'
and that the devil will point out those who
forsook Jesus to worship him as some kind of
proof and justification for mocking God and
blaspheming those in heaven? The devil will
certainly use these damned souls (they
will be damned - see Rev 14:9-12)
as they give the enemies
of the Lord ammunition to use against God,
his kingdom and his people.
This is 21st century idolatry and the Lord
is not mincing words here about those who
engage in it. Israel had some hope after she
sinned, those who take the mark will have
Let the reader pause and consider!

We start the next section of Hosea
with the opening versus of Chapter 12. Here the
prophet describes the spiritual state of
Ephraim. But unlike the the vast majority of the
book, Hosea begins to chide Judah as well who
has by and large been omitted from the prophets
scathing rebukes. This chapter begins to include
the lower kingdom into the prophets ministry as
he begins to show where they have erred. Verse
one shows the Northern Kingdom was feeding on
the wind and was following after the east wind.
The east wind in the Middle East was the one
that came from off of the desert. It was, as we
say today nothing buy 'hot air'. This wind was
not only worthless, it could be quite noxious
and destructive. The sense here is that like
following after this wind, their considerable
efforts in doing so would lead to their own
harm. The two main things that characterize
Ephraim in verse one are lies and desolation.
God hates both. Let us keep in mind that God
here is rebuking both his people and a
nation-state. He is describing the spiritual
condition of the two kingdoms (Israel and Judah)
as well as his chosen people. The word
desolation here is the Hebrew word
With this more complete definition of the world
desolation we get to better understand
the two major sins that were being done in
Ephraim - lies and violence. The two
eventually go hand in hand. I look at my own
nation, America today and I see the same trends
even more clearly expressed in every section of
American society. We have a lying media, lying
politicians, lying lawyers, lying military
leaders and lying corporate executives, lying
intelligence officials. You cannot rise to any
great heights in America if you do not lie
consistently and deliberately - usually to
make money or hide criminal acts. Hosea's words
strike home even today in 21st century America.
From H7736; violence, ravage: -
desolation, destruction, oppression,
robbery, spoil (-ed, -er, -ing), wasting.
God chides the Northern Kingdom for making a
treaty with their enemies, the Assyrians to whom
they, like Judah (1Kings 15:19), probably paid
tribute. This tribute probably took the form at
least partly, of olive oil for which the kingdom
was well known. This all appears to be part of a
geopolitics of those days between Assyria,
Egypt, Israel and Judah. here is what John Gill
says about the situation in those days.
is carried into Egypt: one
while they sent presents to the Assyrians,
to obtain their favour and friendship: and
at another time to the Egyptians; nay,
they sent to So king of Egypt, at the same
time they were tributary to Assyria, and,
conspiring against him, brought on their
ruin; and oil was a principal part of the
present sent; for this was carried not by
way of traffic, but as a present: so the
Verse two then tells the lower kingdom that the
Lord has a controversy with them as well. He
does not let them off the hook. Remember in the
book of Kings it was Menahem who made a treaty.
So many of the same crimes in the North could be
found in the south and keep in mind that during
the time of Hosea, Ahaz was king and he was one
of Judah's more wicked kings. Here is a small
excerpt of what the ISBE has to say about him.
"and they carried gifts to Egypt;''
see Isa 57:9. The land of Israel,
being a land of oil olive, was famous for
the best oil, of which there was a
scarcity in Egypt, and therefore a welcome
present there, as balsam also was; see Gen
young, Ahaz seems at once to have struck
out an independent course wholly opposed
to the religious traditions of his nation.
His first steps in this direction were the
causing to be made and circulated of
molten images of the Baalim, and the
revival in the valley of Hinnom, south of
the city, of the abominations of the
worship of Moloch (2Ch_28:2, 2Ch_28:3). He
is declared to have made his own son “pass
through the fire” (2Ki_16:3); the
chronicler puts it even more strongly: he
“burnt his children in the fire”
(2Ch_28:3). Other acts of idolatry were to
follow. - ISBE

Judah has fallen into the devils grasp as well
and the prophet in this chapter would no longer
brush over these things. Another reason why the
Prophet waited so long to rebuke Israel is that
this chapter may have been written later in the
prophets life and by then the spiritual decay
under kings like Ahaz could no longer be
Some of you may find this little hand written

Outlines Of The Old Testament.
The reference to Jacob is probably meant to put
both kingdoms in the same prophetic category
- both descendants of the promised
bloodline and both wayward and sinful. God makes
it plain that he will recompense both of them
for their wickedness and evil.
took his brother by the heel in the womb,
and by his strength he had power with God:
This passage is an allusion to the Patriarchal
story of the two brothers Jacob and Esau and
later how Jacob was favored by God and even had
power over him. This again alludes to the
episode in Genesis when Jacob wrestled with the
Lord (Genesis 32:24ff). This episode is
taken by most to be an early epiphany of
Christ. This idea follows into verse four.
It is an amazing thing, that Jacob wrestled with
either an angel or a divine being and prevailed.
John Gill again has an excellent comment that is
worthy of note to show you the thinking on some
of the various views here.
Yea, he had power over the angel, and
prevailed: he wept, and made supplication
he found him in Bethel, and there he spake
with us; Even the LORD God of hosts;
the LORD is his memorial.
Yea, he had
power over the angel, and prevailed,....
This is repeated in different words, not
only for the confirmation of it, it being
a very extraordinary thing, and difficult
of belief; but to direct to the history
here referred to, where the person Jacob
prevailed over is called a man, and here
the angel; and so Josephus (u) calls him a
divine Person; not a created angel, not
Michael, as the Rabbins say, unless the
Messiah is meant by him; nor Jacob's
guardian angel, as Kimchi, every man being
thought by some to have one; and much less
Esau's evil angel, that was against Jacob,
as Jarchi and Abarbinel; for of him he
would never have sought nor expected a
blessing; but an uncreated Angel, the Son
of God, the same that went before the
Israelites in the wilderness, and that
redeemed Jacob from all evil, Gen_48:16;
called an Angel, being so not by nature,
for he is superior to angels in both his
natures, divine and human; but by office,
being sent to reveal the will of God, and
to do the work of God in the redemption
and salvation of men; the same that is
called the Angel of the great council in
the Greek version of Isa_9:6; and the
Angel of God's presence, Isa_63:9; and the
Angel or messenger of the covenant,
Mal_3:1; the phrases used denote, as
before, the power and prevalence Jacob had
with this divine Person in prayer; whereby
he obtained the blessing of him, even
deliverance from his brother Esau, as well
as others respecting him and his posterity;
Jacob was special, though there were times he
was shall we say 'ethically challenged' both
deceit and occasionally cowardice were part of
his makeup. As father of the 12 tribes, it was
Jacob who in the passage above symbolizes both
Israel and Judah. The key here was that God here
is showing Jacob's early contact with God and
how both God and Israel (Jacob's name was
changed to Israel (Gen 32:28) were identified
with each other. Bethel, the place now teeming
with idolatry was once the place where Jacob
felt the very presence of God. There is how the
book of Genesis describes this.
behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee
in all places whither thou goest, and will
bring thee again into this land; for I
will not leave thee, until I have done
that which I have spoken to thee of. And
Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he
said, Surely the LORD is in this
place; and I knew it not. And he was
afraid, and said, How dreadful is this
place! this is none other but the house
of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
And Jacob rose up early in the morning,
and took the stone that he had put for his
pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and
poured oil upon the top of it. And he
called the name of that place Bethel:
but the name of that city was called Luz
at the first. And Jacob vowed a vow,
saying, If God will be with me, and will
keep me in this way that I go, and will
give me bread to eat, and raiment to put
on, So that I come again to my
father's house in peace; then shall the
LORD be my God:
Jacob made a covenant with God here at Bethel.
But his decedents assisted in breaking it by
erecting golden calf's in Bethel thus provoking
the Lord to great anger. Israel and to a
somewhat lesser but clearly high degree Judah,
had forsaken the God of Jacob and had gone aside
and the result is what we find back in verse one
- lies and destruction were the fruit of their
doings as it is with all false
turn thou to thy God: keep mercy and
and wait on thy God continually.
The prophet, like any true
prophet he has words that sting, no doubt, but
he also has words that heal. Verse six are
those words. The prophet here is exhorting
both kingdoms to do the right thing. Mercy and
judgment are what is expected. Hosea asks them
to turn to God and do do these things. These
are two interesting concepts to place in the
same verse and I think it meet that each are
talked a bit about before we end this section
of Hosea. First, let's look at each word in
From H2616; kindness; by implication
(towards God) piety; rarely (by
opprobrium) reproof, or (subjectively)
beauty: - favour, good deed (-liness,
-ness), kindly, (loving-) kindness,
merciful (kindness), mercy, pity,
reproach, wicked thing.
From H8199; properly a verdict
(favorable or unfavorable) pronounced
judicially, especially a sentence or
formal decree (human or (particularly)
divine law, individual or collectively),
including the act, the place, the suit,
the crime, and the penalty; abstractly
justice, including a particular right,
or privilege (statutory or customary),
or even a style: - + adversary,
ceremony, charge, X crime, custom,
desert, determination, discretion,
disposing, due, fashion, form, to be
judged, judgment, just (-ice, -ly),
(manner of) law (-ful), manner, measure,
(due) order, ordinance, right, sentence,
usest, X worthy, + wrong.
Generally when one things of Judgment one
thinks of it has harsh and unbending. Mercy on
the other hand is often looked upon as the
opposite. We Christians are often looked upon
as judgmental. It's not that we are, but that
the God we serve has clear commandments and a
clear set of moral principles that fallen men
would much rather rebel against than follow.
So we get tagged with the 'judgmental' label
for saying the evil is evil. Murderers don't
like to be told murder is wrong, nor
thieves, thefts; nor adulterers, adultery; nor
liars, lies. People just don't want to hear
those things. They like their sins so if you
point them out you are 'judgmental'. Mercy? We
have heard that word ad-nauseum from this new
Pope who appears more and more just to want to
make the fundamental truths of the Bible
'negotiable' and the commandments of God
'debatable'. The two extremes are just
that - extremes. Judgment is
absolute but mercy can be found when one
repents and acknowledges wrong doing. We must
show pity to the lowly and love to the
forgotten. But we must obey the Lord in all
things, but if we fall or go wayward, we need
not fear - God will be with us if we
repent or there is personal weakness (like
drug abuse). Both are needed for no man, not
even the greatest Christian is perfect. God is
calling both Judah and Israel to do both. To
love Judgment, the law of the Lord, but to do
so with mercy and love. This is the basic of
the prophets call.
Both kingdoms need to repent and get back to
I see our nation, America today, as we move
into the Presidential elections of 2016 facing
many of the conundrums of the ancient Jewish
kingdoms. Many of the sins and troubles
described by the prophet here are seen in our
society today - the lies, deceits and the
violence. Now we have two candidates that in
my view perfectly reflect the character of the
nation. One woman who does not like
Christians... at all, nor Blacks nor Jews and
while quite a competent administrator is
devoid of the kind of morality that the Most
High wants in a people who will be blessed by
him. The other, a spoiled, loud mouthed
narcissist who has no political track record
and who has turned up the volume of racial
hated in the country (ed
- this was written in March and since then,
he has toned down his race baiting message).
The nation needs to get back to the basics of
right and wrong and the spiritual principles
that Christ laid out to us all. The morality
that many of our founders respected as God
allowed this nation to be blessed above all
the nations of the earth. We need to root out
the corruption in our courts and in our
political system and bring in swift and fair
judgment on those who do evil. We need to make
sure the poor man and the rich man are treated
equally in our courts rather than the way they
are today. We need to go back and listen...
really listen to what the prophet Hosea
and his compatriots from yesteryear are saying
to us today.
We will get onwards with the next section of
Hosea as the Lord allows!
If you want a look at what it is
really like inside this Islamic Monarch and how
it treats people, you should take some time out
and read this one carefully. Americans have no
real conception of what the Saudi
Royals and their wealthy men are really
I posted a link a few days ago to Sauduction a
great site, but the really good stuff that was
once on that site is gone. They took it down
years ago, and then the site went into a hiatus.
Thankfully the old site does still exist
but I hesitate to say where it can be found.
Most Americans have no idea, no REAL
idea of just what that kingdom and their version
of Islam is really all about (Wahabbism) and how
deeply our American intelligence officials have
been covertly supporting not just in the KSA,
but radical, violent Islam all throughout the
world - finding legal, semi-legal and
illegal means to see to it that radical jihadist
groups around the world are fully armed, trained
and capable of committing atrocities. One of
their tactics is the 'intentional
mistake'. Like making sure tons of arms
flow to terrorist groups in well planned and
coordinated 'mistakes'. Like the Benghazi
'mistake' that made hundreds of tons
of arms and munitions to spread
all through East
Africa. More here.
Another 'intentional mistake'? The Bombing of
Syrian Troops by the US in the midst of a cease
fire. Who is the Syrian Army fighting? Wahabbiist
Terrorists who are trying to overthrow the
Syrian government. Since day one, America and
the Saudi's have been arming and aiding these
We have no business with this kind of regime
change, replacing a democratically elected one
with terrorists. That's pretty crazy. But that
is just what our Foreign policy has been for
years, just plain nuts. Why? Because Americans
don't care about or vote foreign policy. They
vote sexual preference and abortion, they vote
jobs and skin color. They don't care about our
leaders supporting terrorism and dropping them
arms to them in covert CIA drops and training
missions. Thus, crazy continues to get crazier
and covert Islamist continue to gain sway in
formulating our foreign policy.
Now, let me show you how propaganda works. Note
this CNN piece (dated 18 Sept) they try
and cast doubt that it was US forces who killed
Syrian troops by using the 'according to Russian
sources' phrase, or as the headlines reads
'...says Russia'. This phrase is designed to get
people to say, 'oh the Russians said it, so it
must not be true' kind of thing. All of this plants
a careful seed of doubt because everyone
'knows' you can't trust Russians. In the article
blame for the strike is phrased, "It was not
known who conducted Sunday's strikes..." and
then quotes an organization that is rather strange
but is quoted by the MSM as though gospel and
has been on the forefront of in the information
war. Now the guy who runs it is probably
doing this from pure motives. But when you crawl
into bed with 'un-named funders' you dance to
their tune and he appears to have learned many
new 'dance steps' since this war started.
This is how issues are spun here in the
controlled media. They use this kind of
technique to create a 'debate' and doubt about
what they know to be true so that further
disobedience to Presidential orders can be
continued and no, I may not like Obama's
policies much, but I don't think after months of
very hard work negotiating that
deal he ordered it torpedoed with that
But the DOD was forced to admit
what they did (17 Sept)- but reading the
CNN piece you would never know that for sure.
Let me say this - I am not in love with
the Syrian regime or Assad. But before this war
started he was quite popular and was
DEMOCRATICALLY elected. His human rights abuses?
They are real - but you will find ones just as
bad or worse in Saudi Arabia. Torture? The US
has been doing that for years and before the US
gets on its human rights 'hypocrite horse',
maybe we should look at some of the human rights
issues right here in the US... like all of these
unarmed brothers being shot dead by cops.
why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy
but considerest not the beam that is in
thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me
pull out the mote out of thine eye;
and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
first cast out the beam out of thine own
eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast
out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
They should have continued to let the Syrian
people decide how they were governed - that is a
system of government called democracy and one
that more and more appears to be hated by the
entity that now controls Washington. Terrorists
are to be preferred to democratic systems of
governance by these new forces.
These are not the reasons they
want him overthrown. They are the reasons they
tell Joe Sixpac, but not the real reasons. The
real ones have been discussed already here more
than a few times.
Propaganda works.... they know how to do it and
they are VERY good at it because often times
these articles are written not at the news
network, but by intelligence officers working
for the government whose job it is to deceive
Americans to supporting their crazy policies.
Moreover now in Syria, the Russians won't ever
trust us again, not as long as Obama is at the
helm, though it's not really his fault. The
Russians themselves have asked in public, who is
running American policy? - they don't know...
...and neither to we.
Give the devil his due in this alone... he knows
how to deceive and kill.
What has been the result of this kind of support
that Congress is not even aware of?

Muslim Persecution of Christians, June
How does this kind of evil spread? There are
human agents and interlopers who are inspired by
the prince of this world (Satan) to go after
Christians. These days, because of certain laws,
our intelligence agencies are not supposed to
openly denigrate (but they do secretly and they
certainly did it with me) or persecute
Christians. So what they have done is to target
Christian leaders, blackmail them to become
intelligence assets to undermine the tenets of
the faith, causing confusion and a crisis of
faith among the flock. I can tell you all of
this springs from one spiritual source
and just a very few key temporal
interlopers. This is a full frontal assault
on Christians and only a few who are
really clued in understand the dynamics of this,
where it is coming from and the overall plan.

They hate us and have always done so back in the
days of the Ceasar's. We are part of a holy
Bloodline, the bloodline of redemption and
as such, the devil hates us, for we represent
his ultimate defeat, by the person and work of
Jesus Christ and our tenacious faith in him. If
our faith were of no value, the devil would not
be killing us from China to Nigeria: Sudan to

JUBA, South Sudan (Morning
Star News) – Christian workers imprisoned
under charges related to tarnishing Sudan’s
image are innocent, but their arrests serve
the Sudanese government as a warning to others
against criticizing the Islamist regime,
Foreign diplomats and international rights
activists have taken notice of the case since
Morning Star News in December 2015 broke the
story of the arrest
of two pastors that month. As part of a recent
upsurge in harassment of Christians, Sudan
accuses the Sudanese pastors and a foreign aid
worker of “waging war against the state” and
“spying” in the course of allegedly gathering
information on persecution of Christians and
on bombing civilians in the Nuba Mountains.
Prosecutors in Sudan this week presented
flimsy evidence against the two pastors and
the Czech medical-aid worker charged with
crimes calling for the death penalty, a
defense attorney told Morning Star News.
Prosecutors on Monday (Sept. 26) called on
officials of Sudan’s National Intelligence and
Security Services (NISS) to present as
evidence a video said to be taken from the
computer of Czech aid worker Petr Jasek
showing a foreigner talking with civilians
from the Nuba Mountains area of South
Kordofan, where an insurgency is fighting
government forces, the attorney said.
“The prosecution presented a video whose
content has nothing to do with the case
against Jasek – it only showed a foreigner
talking to some people in South Kordofan,” he
said. “For certain, this shows a NISS policy
to intimidate others into refraining from
criticizing the government.”
Jasek and two Sudan Church of Christ pastors,
the Rev. Kwa Shamaal and the Rev. Hassan
Abdelrahim Tawor, are charged with trying to
tarnish the image of Sudan’s government by
collecting information on persecution of
Christians and on genocide in the Nuba
Mountains. The charges include collecting
information for “other parties hostile to

activities and providing material support for
Nuba rebels in South Kordofan under two
charges that carry the death penalty – waging
war against the state (Article 51 of the
Sudanese Criminal Code) and spying (Article
After showing an English-language video said
to be recovered from Jasek’s laptop, the court
on Monday (Sept. 26) postponed the hearing so
that a translation into Arabic could be made.

I ask this question and I don't know the
answer to it for sure. What if many of these
Christians not just here but all over the
world being arrested were working for the US
in an undercover fashion? What if their cover
is being deliberately blown in a dedicated
effort to strengthening Radical Islam and
undermining Christianity all over the world?
What if someone is deliberately leaking the
names of Christian agents, preachers and
evangelists and other people to hard line
regimes in the hopes they will be killed?
My question has deep ramifications because I
think this may be part of the reason we have
seen these kinds of things all over the world
Mind you, I am not saying all or even most of
these people are working for a foreign
intelligence service, and yes I am fully aware
that many would love to use that narrative (as
in Sudan) as an excuse to round up more
Christians and this is why I hesitate to post
this. But I think there indeed may be a
My concern is that there may very well be a
deliberate security leak in our own
intelligence services targeting Christians.
I have strong reasons I cannot share to think
there may be.
I must say this as well - Those in the
agency who claim to be Christians (but were
serving his enemies) ... they were my problem.
They were also behind setting me up and worked
hard with the feds to try and screw me, hound
me and set me up, they threatened me
personally and threatened (over the phone) on
numerous occasions to break into my home. I
later found out that they were deeply and
violently involved in Neo-Nazism.
So these kinds of intelligence officers as
well may be part of the problem. Satan fills
their heart with some lie and they go after
the servants of Jesus Christ with some new
found demonic inspired hate. A hate that leads
to imprisonment, often torture and even death
to God's people.
Yes, they have multiple problems over in the
IC and I am not so sure the Senate, the
President or the courts can control them.
If they wanted to and I am not sure
they want to.
I say this in the hopes that other Christians
will not fall victim to these forces in the
Nicaraguan Government Shuts Down Evangelical
09/28/2016 Washington, D.C. –
International Christian Concern (ICC) has
learned that the Alianza Evangelica
Nicaraguenze (Evangelical Alliance of
Nicaragua, AEN) was recently denied access to
the communal plaza of La Biblia (The Bible) in
the nation’s capital, Managua. The Nicaraguan
government, headed by David Ortega Saavedra,
obstructed the AEN from conducting a prayer
and worship vigil in the plaza in early
September and will prevent its use throughout
the month of October.
President Ortega originally opened the plaza
in 2008 and designated it as a space for the
use of evangelical prayer meetings and other
religious ceremonies. Administrative
responsibility for the plaza was handed over
to the local municipal authorities of Managua,
under the leadership of then mayor Jose
Dionisio Marenco. Ortega and Marenco have a
long-standing friendship and are both members
of the Sandinista National Liberation Front
(FSLN), a historically socialist party that
has been a key player in Nicaraguan politics
since the late 1970s.
Pastor Mauricio Fonseca Pereira, president of
the AEN, explained to La Prensa, one of
Managua’s newspapers, “We had envisioned and
planned a prayer campaign, along with praise
and worship for each Friday of the month
through October, for the peace and elections
in Nicaragua. We had previously spoken with
Fidel Moreno, but I do not know what happened,
and why they have denied us the plaza.” Fidel
Moreno, secretary general of Managua’s
municipal government, is responsible for
mediating and coordinating use of public
In August, Noticia Cristiana reported that
President Ortega’s administration implemented
a new policy regarding foreign missionaries.
The Ministry of Governance, Nicaragua’s
federal executive and enforcement agency,
imposed stricter requirements for individuals
and ministries that sought to enter the
country. As a result, the policy prevented
approximately 300 Mexican and Central American
missionaries from visiting Nicaragua for a
religious conference that took place in late
Pastor Fonseca explains that Nicaragua has
witnessed a growth in the percentage of
evangelicals, making the denial of access all
the more surprising. Statistical estimates
from leading universities in the country show
that 50 percent of the Nicaraguan population
identifies as evangelicals. Figures range as
low as 46 percent and as high as 56 percent.
The denial of access to the plaza comes during
a strategic time in Nicaragua’s electoral
process. Nicaragua’s elections are to be held
on November 6. - Continues at ICC
Quietly far away from the headlines,
something is happening in France.
(World Watch Monitor) Ghazan, 47, a
father of three, used to own his own business.
In the summer of 2014, he was forced out of
his house in Mosul, the city in northern Iraq
now controlled by IS. He says living in a
displacement camp has been hard, but he found
a job at a local bakery and this helps provide
for his family.
Ghazan, with his head sticking through the
shop window waiting for the next customer, is
one of the first people you see when you walk
down one of Erbil’s busy shopping streets.
When a customer arrives, he quickly and
skillfully fills a clear plastic bag with
samoon, a traditional Iraqi bread. He looks
like he’s been doing this his whole life.
“Please try some,” he says.
Speaking in a backroom at the bakery, Ghazan
says this is all new to him. Standing next to
a hot oven, he talks about the humbling
experience of working here, earning one tenth
of his former salary. “Back in my own town on
the Nineveh Plain, I used to have a successful
transport company,” he says. “We had a good
life until IS came and forced us out.”
He shrugs his shoulders. He misses his house,
the village church and his business. He
doesn’t know what happened to the first two,
but he knows what happened to his company. “I
heard that IS stole all our cars and are using
them in Mosul right now,” he says.
Ghazan has a daughter and two sons. The oldest
is 21, the youngest nine. “It was hard to see
my family displaced. We lost our home, our
place to stay,” he says.
At first the family stayed with Ghazan’s
sister, but, because there was no local
college for his eldest child, the family
continued on to Erbil. The city has been a
safe haven to many Christians fleeing IS.
They arrived in Erbil with nothing. “The first
15 days were hard,” he recalls. “I couldn’t
find a job, I had no income, and the rent for
our apartment was high.”... Continues

A Comment From A Reader
Q in Black A In Red.
I watched the first US presidential debate I
one thing struck me - Hillary didn't seem that
ill. Maybe (as Mark Twain almost put it) "the
reports of Hillary's illness have been greatly
exaggerated." Or there are some great doctors
and drugs out there! Or a Hillary clone...
According to the reports I
have already linked to Her injury (a head
injury caused by a fall)
Later she has a blood
clot in her head.
Strange that most
Americans don't even know this. But this is
one of the things that MONEY buys you when
running - the media. You are a 'conspiracy
theorist' if you report the simple facts and
that is how much of the MSM reports anything
negative about her heath.
Not even she denies this.
So 'ill' is a relative term. She will be fine
until she has a seizure and she does have
them. Though she will deny them until the
votes are counted.
There are too many
video's on the web of her convulsions, needing
assistance getting around and in and out of
cars for me to link to. A couple may be fake,
but not all of them.
How severe and how often
are these brain seizures we don't know. I know
she does have them and if you look at the
video's I have posted you will see that these
are full body convulsions.
I think (based on some
conversations with others) that somebody
**may** have botched some kind of minor unreported
surgery a few years ago. But I cannot say
that with any real certainty.
The Brain injury may only
effect motor control during the seizure.
They probably had her on
a healthy amount of anti-seizure meds before
The other problem is that
she does often talk and make no sense. This
may be a side effect of her medications but I
am not a doctor and don't know.
Clinton has a spin
machine that is out of this world. She could
go on camera, drool like a retard, copulate
with a snake on live TV, hack off the heads of
infants and half of the American population
would blame Trump and the GOP... and vote for
Hillary. She would win like she won against
Sanders in California, - she would only need a
small amount of vote
fraud to put her over the top.
She is raking in money
like never before and that alone is how you
win elections in America.
MONEY buys you 24-7 SPIN
and totally believable LIES.
Most people hear and see
what they want to hear and see and those who
are obsessed with their sexual perversions or
make billions murdering the unborn don't care
if she is a demon possessed cyborg.... as long
as they can use the government to keep their
wickedness fully supported by the state.
facts and information are the their true
enemy. They much prefer a lie (any lie) that
lets them keep sticking their weenie in
another man's poop-chute and Hillary will let
them do that and do all they can to punish
Christians for saying these things are wrong,
using the power of the state.

Hmmmmmmm....... Propaganda or truth?
I have always felt that he
was born in Kenya. I am not dogmatic about it
or all 'worked up' about it. No one is
following the Constitution anyway so I am
unconcerned. These days, more and more the
persons/entities/groups with the most powerful
blackmail, bribery, threats, 'set-up' and
murder rackets gets to make the decisions in
DC. More and more the President is a less and
less important a job. But this needs to be
I also think that the
falsification of Obama's birth and official
record (when applying at Harvard and for his
law license) were the real reasons he lost his
ability to practice law (a story that no one
talks about these days). Listen, no one
voluntarily gives up their license
to practice law. They may give up their
practice, but not their license. All those
records have never been released- they were
sealed. They were going to suspend him,
perhaps even charge him.
No, I suspect he is not
constitutionally eligible to be President and
this is one of the key reasons he has had so
many troubles as President. A great many in
the military and in Congress don't think he is
qualified and I suspect many know he
is not qualified - they don't care how the
issue is spun to the half-wit with a six pac
who glares at the flat panel 8 hours a
day at Betty Bigboobs 'doing' half the porn
stars in Southern California --- of both
sexes. They justifiably have nothing but
contempt for such Americans.
There is a history
about his mother in particular and his

If it shows that I have
little respect for the American voter let me
say it plainly so there is no future

Clearly the President

our Foreign policy under Hillary Clinton was
'more crazy than Bush'. Obama, for the most
part was completely out of the loop -
lost in a world of press releases and
inconsequential speeches that he can and could
never translate into concrete policy.
What has been happening
in DC and the White House and has been since
he became President is no little thing.
In short, while we have
not had a coup, its about as close to one as
you can get and this tracks back to a whole
range of issues, not least of which the
Snowden revelations and the fact that the DOD
(NSA) was directly disobeying the only Federal
Court that as jurisdiction over it. There have
been many strange things going on that have
never been contextualized for the people nor
probably ever will be. We have a very
serious problem with our military and some
of its leaders.
I think they temporarily
solved some of the problems, but I am not so
sure those fixes have stayed in place.
I don't trust Trump. I
think he does care about this nation deeply.
It remains to be seen if he cares more about
his personal profits or not.
About Trump. Or rather a thought I got a
month ago. I don't claim that this is
prophetic but I can't say it isn't either.
Mostly my own thinking but still
interesting. Could the following happen?
- Trump wins and becomes the 45th president
of the USA
- He knows that The Fed isn't a real
Central Bank as other countries have
- He tells the creditors that it is the 15
private banks that owe money, NOT the USA
- He declares the USA more or less debt
free and tells the rest of the world that
their claims should be directed directly to
The Fed not the US Government
- The Fed defaults on its debt
- The creditors become furious and begin
conspire and eventually rise up via the ten
horns to take out WS as revenge
I just don't think he has
the temperament for that job. We need a wise
and thoughtful man who knows how to take
charge. He knows how to take charge, as for
the rest, I just don't see it.
If this election is full
of gutter politics, I don't blame the
politicians, but the people in this nation who
feed it and are influenced by and are a knowing
party to the sewage being spewed out all
over the nation on both sides of the aisle.
Again, I am not
going to be party to it. I see both of these
candidates pretty much for what they are and
if there is any hope at all it is the
slightest glimmer that Trump may surprise us
as he has no political record, or that Hillary
has mellowed considerably in light of her
illness. But those hopes I suspect are
illusory and the last dying gasp of a nation
and political system in serious distress.
Know this, when God gets
angry enough at a people or nation, he can
send us leaders whose job it is to destroy us.
I need to say this to all
of you who know Christ. The only thing that
belongs in a sewer is a turd and I am not
going to join in just because everyone else
is. That should be your attitude as well. This
nation and its people can do better, but
jumping in with the rest of the waste material
will only make you stink, not fix anything.
Where are the JFK's? The

pocketbooks and build a world of peace and

defense industry, undermining the rights of
the poor and people of color world wide,
amalgamating power amoungst a morally bankrupt
elite who would borrow the nation into
oblivion while they made off with the goods,
leaving us with the debts.
Ultimately that is what the two party system
represents - the Triumph of war over peace and
hate over hope and debts over prosperity.
America's Terrorist Protection
Racket, False Narratives And More
Whose side are this Administration's
key policy makers on? Today, the
powers over at DOD are siding with Saudi
Arabia, against the families of the 911 attack.
The gist of the story can be found here.
These men who are supposed to be defending
Americans from terrorists are now defending the
terrorists from Americans! Well, this is what it
boils down to and for those of you who missed
this, go ahead and really take some time and check
out what the Europeans discovered about Saudi
Arabia and modern Islamic Terrorism. Mind
you, I have reason to believe that certain US
intelligence officials helped them write it,
with the proviso that it would be made public.
Why? Because such a report would have extreme
difficulty being released in the US in any
form, by anyone - official or semi-official
- even think tanks that were heavily
funded by the Defense industry would be warned
The Saudi's have a powerful
lobby here in the US. It's
a lobby that has the most powerful
political names in America whose job it is to
protect the Kingdom and the terrorists they
support, arm and aid them and ensure that no one
here in the US can touch them. They have the
power to 'kill' reports and investigations into
their undertakings. Want proof? How long did it
take for those classified 28 pages that named
Saudi's to come to light here in the US? Fifteen
years and only then after considerable
acrimony and threats from the Saudi's.
The key to understand right now is arms
deals. The billions of dollars in arms
contracts that major campaign donors
desire above all else. These sales are also
designed to save a major US defense contractor.
Who is that contractor? General
Dynamics. Those of you who want to know
who they are
donating to, can
head on over here and see for yourself.
Their total lobbying profile can be found below.
Here are some screenshots, info and graphics
Notice an interesting name? Like Bernie Sanders?
Well, that just goes to show you that these
companies grease all sides of the political
rails to make sure what they want slides right
past the key committee's and the House and
What I find rather disgusting is that these top
military leaders are using a lame justification
that suing the Saudi's will 'harm US troops'.
How? I mean really, how? Yes, the sovereign
immunity thing is an issue - but why should it
be? We as Americans really need to re-think how
we have and should in the future interact with
the world. Should a nation-state be free to
commit acts of terror? If so why are we fighting
terrorists seeing they and terrorist acts are
'immune' from the law.
Now its not my intention to say that the entire
Saudi Regime supports terrorism. No rather key
people within the Royal Family, her financial
sector and her security services do. This is a
complex story and some of it has to do with
internal rivalries inside the Kingdom. Since
911, we can get a pretty good idea who has the
most influence based upon the terror groups
still being supported by the Saudis'. More here
Keep in mind that those 'rebel's include
groups that have long been on the State
sponsored terrorist list and whose whole purpose
now is to violently overthrow the democratically
elected government of Syria (terrorism) and
install one that is Sunni (Saudi). They have
been deeply involved in many of the ISIS
like atrocities seen in Syria.
The Natural Gas War Burning Under Syria
The only way that bill could really be a
threat is if the Saudi's or their surrogates
began directing attacks on American troops and
if that is the case, why did the attempt to ban
weapons sales to the Saudi's fail? Are we
in a fight against terrorism or a fight to give
aid and comfort to entities directly linked to
giving significant and vital support to
terrorism? Don't tell me we are fighting
terrorists when Americans cannot sue those who
clearly had a hand in the attack on 911. We can
spend billions for wars, see many of our bravest
die and come home crippled and maimed, but can't
sue the Saudi's? What's up with that?
I don't know for sure, but my guess is the above
charts had a lot to do with it. That and the
strong influence the Saudi's have over the
Senate and Congress... and the fact of
the strong influence the defense industry has on
Congress who are dependent on the Saudi's for a
very significant revenue stream in arms sales.
Yes, supporting Americans and the victims of
terrorism is the right thing to
do, but supporting Terrorism and those who have
aided it - that is the politically
expedient and financially rewarding
thing to do.
Look the Saudi's, without any interlopers are
committing some of the worst war crimes right
now in Yemen. Killing Civilians,
Bombs and phosphorus
Syrians in Yemen - They
fled Assad to find Saudi strikes
And the Yemen war is far more complex than
Americans have been told. We have been told it's
about Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula. But you
will find that the Saudi's and Al Qaeda, at
least some of the terrorist militia's are
fighting on the same side.
Brothers the Yemeni are people in deep, deep
percent of Yemen's population right now are in
need of aid. There is little doubt that
the Saudi's are the biggest problem and the UN's
Human rights chief makes that fact plain in the
above link. A snapshot of the humanitarian
situation can be found
here. Yemen, has all the makings of a
failed State. The Saudi's hoping to stabilize a
nation on its border with a considerable Shi'ite
population, will in all likelihood make into a
no-mans land where roaming bands of armed
militia's will be able to eventually strike the
Saudi's and run back to a place where there is
no central government.
Yemen Has Become the Graveyard of the
This fight against 'terrorism' really isn't.
That is the narrative we are being fed, but that
is not the reality on the ground. The reality is
that terrorists are getting considerable help
from the US and her allies. We have seen both
the CIA and the DOD drop copious amounts of arms
to terrorist groups in Syria, 'sheep dipping'
the terrorists by calling them 'rebels' and when
they are caught the same group changes its name
so the arms and training can continue.
They feed Americans all this baloney about
fighting terrorism but the reality on the ground
in either in Yemen, Iraq or Syria, told by US
soldiers and Special Ops guys tell us a story
that is completely different.
Now I posted a link to a story of a Special ops
guy at the Site Fortuna's Corner a few days
ago. The link has since
gone missing. But the article can still be
Give it a go, perhaps you will get a better
understanding just how broken Washington and
this administration really is.
Look folks, listen to your soldiers. Not the
generals that come on TV channels that are
linked to the Defense e$tabli$hment,
but the guys who are in the trenches who have to
actually go in and do the work. They will tell
you 'the rest of the story' as Paul
Harvey used to say on his famous radio show.
I wish I could be more positive about what is
going on, but I can't. Clearly terrorism has
become a new lobby in DC and that being the
case, the next bomb that goes off in America...
you will never know who was really behind it.
One of 'us' or one of 'them'.
I hate to be so hard on one nation like the
Saudi's, because others too are deeply involved
in the terrorist support business. But none have
the influence the Saudi's do in Washington.

shall the kingdom of heaven be likened
unto ten virgins, which took their lamps,
and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And
five of them were wise, and five were
foolish. They that were foolish took their
lamps, and took no oil with them: But the
wise took oil in their vessels with their
lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they
all slumbered and slept. And at midnight
there was a cry made, Behold, the
bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed
their lamps. And the foolish said unto the
wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps
are gone out. But the wise answered,
saying, Not so; lest there be not enough
for us and you: but go ye rather to them
that sell, and buy for yourselves. And
while they went to buy, the bridegroom
came; and they that were ready went in
with him to the marriage: and the door was
shut. Afterward came also the other
virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

items later today, God willing But today I
want to talk about something that I think is
of the utmost importance. As we see how so
many of our Brethren are being locked up,
beaten, robbed and even killed for their
faith in Jesus, let us remember that we are
in a battle. A real, life-and-death
struggle. A struggle that can mean death to
both the body and the soul. Evil is
everywhere and it is growing. But it, like
the devil who is behind so much of it, is
exceptionally deceptive and knows how to get
God's people, who should be in the fight, to
go to sleep and forget about where they are
and what time it is.
The three versus above are good for us to
consider. In Joshua's time, he and the
Israelite's could not enter into the
promised land without a fight. It was not
possible. Whenever God gives us a promise,
his enemies will do all they can to keep
that promise from being fulfilled. A host of
fallen angels and many of the sons of men
who are guided by them, are going to work
overtime to beat us at the warfare of faith.
Just keep in mind that the number one target
of the devil is that faith that you have in
Christ. That simple trust in God's promises
is what the devil is after and he will go
through considerable effort to ensure that
you lose that faith somewhere down the line.
Yes, the devil will threaten your home, your
marriages, your health, your jobs, your
finances even your very life in order to get
you to deny the Lord or cease believing in
his promises. That is his goal, to steal
your faith and inhibit or stop the actions
you take in that faith.
He knows that a Christian who is rock solid
in that faith and is obedient to his Lord is
a potent weapon against him and his kingdom
of darkness. We are indeed Children of
Light, if we have been born of the Spirit
and walk in Christ.
are all the children of light, and the
children of the day:
we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
- 1Th 5:5
As Children of the light we must
fight the darkness and that darkness shows
itself in things like lies, murder, hatred,
deceit, fraud, adultery, fornication as
well as unbelief (faithlessness) and all of
those things that run contrary to God's revealed
Fighting this fight is not easy and Paul when he
came to the end of his days, knew his life was
coming to an end made it plain that he fought
the good fight and stood with Jesus right to the
In times like these we must not ever give up our
faith nor be slack in doing whatever it is that
God has called us to do, be it ever so humble.
Let us remember how God dealt with faithless
Israel when they strayed from him and began to
consort with the enemies of the Lord (Baal,
Ashtoreth, etc). They gave up their faith for
that which did not profit them.
This is sadly the story of far too many
Christians here in the west. Too many have
fallen for the trinkets, deceptions and spirit
of this age and given up their faith in Christ
for the comforts - material and social - of this
world and of this life.
This is a hard choice and for many of us, we
have to make this choice on a regular basis, to
stay with Christ and forsake the profits,
comforts and rewards of this world and this life
in order to walk closely with Jesus and do the
things he commands.
One of the biggest problems is the problem of
seduction. The devil is an expert at it and he
knows which buttons to push on each of us to
seduce us away from our God. He will use money,
position sex, fame anything that he knows that
we desire to get us to turn away from our faith.
We must not.
In our times I suspect we will have some of the
biggest challenges ever to face the body of
Christ. I see many plans being set in motion to
undermine the basic tenets of the faith in order
to meld Christianity, or rather corporate
Christianity into a new religious system
controlled by secularists and satanists to
'control' religion to serve their interests.
Truth be told they will do what they can to
seduce as many religious systems as they can to
call for 'unity' and 'peace' and 'understanding'
and then say that the enemy as they see it will
be 'fundamentalism' particularly the target of
the devil being Christian fundamentalism.
But what do we mean by that? Now the devil will
use the tactic of confusion here to juxtapose
the meaning of this. The devil will do all he
can to link up Christian fundamentalism with
violent acts, perhaps even terrorism. They elite
will probably hire some mercenaries to pretend
Christian beliefs, start a 'Church' begin using
it for violent acts and then blame
'fundamentalism' to manufacture a hate against
us. The key here will be to create a narrative
to demonize us and the fundamentals of the
faith, so that spiritual compromise in favor of
global unity (not unity in the faith if Jesus
Christ) becomes the only religious foundation
that is acceptable to the state, the elite and
major global employers. I say employers because
e must not forget that the major tool of
coercion in the final 42 month system is
economics, the ability to buy and sell. Be
assured, the devil will and even now uses
Economics against us.
A true Christian fundamentalist will pray for
and forgive his enemies. He will seek peace and
love, he will help the helpless and always be
humble. The devil will do all in his power to
change that image into something that he can get
most people to start hating.
Let me say this as well. To some degree we must
participate in a system that is already reeking
of evil and corruption. From Hollywood, to the
major banking houses of the day, to national and
international payment systems. They are already
supporting things like Abortion, the Gay agenda,
Satanism, Islam... you name it. These are things
that we Christians have little to no control
over. We can have our protests and that we
should do, as much as practical. But the Holy
Spirit gives us all the true line in the
sand - the compromise we must never
make for sake of participation in the economic
system. What is that? Taking the mark of the
beast. Beyond that, we must be guided
individually by our own consciences and the
spirit. Me? I pretty much turned on Hollywood
and until they cease all of this support for the
radical gay agenda, I am not going to funnel
money to them. I have a choice there. Same with
Target. I don't shop there much. I haven't been
there in over a year. No plans to, not until
they change their tune or at least moderate it.
Paypal? They too have supported things I don't
like. Why do I use them? I have little choice.
For internet payments providers, many will not
allow bloggers to take donations or even
subscriptions. I know I have tried time and
again. I used to have the Amazon
Honor system here. They stopped that. Sure
I could go and just say you are all going to
have to send a check to me via snail mail. But
that is not going to work for a person who lives
in Europe or Australia or China or Africa.
Besides my bank charges a kings ransom for
checks drawn on foreign accounts - last I
checked it was $25 dollars for a place like
But even if I got rid of Paypal there is the
whole bank payments system is infected with
these new agendas. Many retailers use the Visa
credit card swiping system. Visa supported Gay
marriage and urged
the Supreme Court to do the same. Use your
'debit' (VISA) card to buy groceries and you are
'supporting' their agenda.
You see how clever the devil is? He knows he can
control the whole shebang with money and you may
protest one guy and the person you switched to
is just as bad, if not worse. This is the power
Besides, as much as I dislike some of PayPal's
policies I can say this. Since some things
happened to them a few years ago that I cannot
say too much about, they have gotten alot better
about disputes. They used to hold people's money
for no good reason for months on end. Well they
got slapped back on that one and more
importantly, they ceased doing that kind of
thing. Moreover I have to protect my readers.
PayPal is hardly perfect, but it is pretty
secure. The last thing I want to do is get with
some new company that does not secure its data
or has no fraud resolution. We could both
So I have to look at it like this. PayPal could
one day say 'fundamentalist' sites will no
longer be serviced by our organization. They
have not done that, nor do I think they will, at
least not soon. The key here is that they do
allow Christians like me to use their service to
spread the gospel and stand watch, something I
know many in power would love to put a stop to
and use their power to coerce 'connected'
payment processors to go along with. Keep in
mind that some of these companies don't
always have the choice you and I may think they
If PayPal goes, what do I do? Options I can tell
you are very, very limited. But if I do the
subscription thing, it is not impossible. But I
really want to avoid that.
So for many of you who have asked (and there are
many of you) that is why I have so far stuck
with PayPal. Simply put, it works. I could go
with another payment system and have all of my
and your money wind up in the hands of the
Russian Mob after a major hack or get my money
locked up for months in some battle over
minutiae, just because 'they can' or because
they don't like Christians.
One thing I have learned is this - to
pick my battles carefully. When it
is time to wean myself from PayPal and some
other personal services I use, God knows how to
get a message to me.
Look at it like this - A General would not pick
a fight on his right flank when he knows that is
where his forces are very weak and the enemy is
strong. It would not be tactically sound and
such a move could be very costly in a heated
Believe me, I understand and respect
those of you who won't use PayPal. I only ask
you to understand why in many ways, I am still
forced to. But one day, they may very well find
a way to say 'No Bible Based Christians' or I
may find a new payment processor that cares more
about making their services available to all
without making any of the controversial
political stances we have come to expect from
major global corporations.
Brothers like in any war we must learn to fight
and fight with determination and intelligence
and pick our battles with care, intelligence and
Yes, this is a battle and we must think like
those who are in a fight, knowing the prize.
Like in Chess we must know not just how to play
but know the value of a Pawn, Rook or a Queen,
use good tactics and have a sound strategy for
victory. Don't trade a Queen for a pawn that is
a hollow and deceptive victory - you lost much
more than you gained.
Yes brothers and sisters, this is a major battle
and there will be casualties. We must fight to
make sure we don't become one and that is not
always easy when deceit and treachery abound.
We won't enter into the promised land unless we
are prepared to, as Joshua was, to do
(spiritual) battle. A Christian who does not put
on his armor and carry his sword is going to be
nothing more than a 'bullet catcher' on the
battlefield. What is a bullet catcher? He is the
guy in the heat of battle who goes directly into
the crossfire and catches bullets... with his
arms, legs, stomach, head and any other exposed
part of the body.
Let's not be bullet catchers, but be like those
who fight the good fight of faith and obtain the
promise of God. How do we do this? I think it
fitting that answer that question and close this
little exhortation with how the Apostle Paul put
it. Here is what he said.
be strong in the Lord, and in the strength
of his might.

Hosea Part XVIII
And my people are bent to
backsliding from me:
though they called
them to the most High, none at all would
How shall I give thee
up, Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee,
how shall I make thee
as Admah? how shall I set thee as Zeboim?
mine heart is turned
within me, my repentings are kindled
As we left off the last time,
God warned the Northern Kingdom, that a sword
would abide on their cities and would consume
their branches and that their own
rather than God's was the reason. The next
passage (above) goes on to describe how the
people were bent and fixed into backsliding
from the most high God. The word backslidings
is one that also means Apostasy.
From H7725; apostasy: -
backsliding, turning away.
Have you ever known backsliders and seen how
they behave? I have known them and
indeed once was one myself. I understand
how this works from personal experience and
from watching others fall away and never come
back. They become averse to God and begin to
run counter to him and his people. In our age,
we understand the spiritual dynamics a little
better as Christ made it plain about a certain
kind of backslider in his time. The man who
was cleaned up of many evil spirits. Here is
what our Lord said.
the unclean spirit is gone out of a man,
he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest, and findeth none.
Then he saith, I will return into my
from whence I came out; and when he
is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and
Then goeth he, and taketh with
himself seven other spirits more wicked
and they enter in and dwell there:
and the last state of that man is
worse than the first.
Even so shall it be also unto this
There is the personal dynamic as many
backsliders just don't want to give up their
sins. They want to go back and do what
everyone else is doing. But there is also the
spiritual, there are powerful evil spirits who
do not want to see anyone on the path to life
and work tirelessly and I do mean tirelessly
to drive us from the path of life back into
the vomit of sin.
if after they have escaped the
pollutions of the world through the
knowledge of the Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ, they are again entangled
and overcome, the latter end is
worse with them than the beginning.
For it had been better for them not
to have known the way of righteousness,
than, after they have known it, to
turn from the holy commandment delivered
But it is happened unto them
according to the true proverb,
The dog is turned to his own vomit
again; and the sow that was washed
to her wallowing in the mire.
Ephraim had gone the route of the backslider.
God then reminds them that the prophets had
called them to return the God and give him
glory and praise. They would not do it. None,
would according the prophet here. The reason
has been stated so far throughout the book of
Hosea, Ephraim was giving praise and honor to
the idols of wood and stone. Why was this?
There were many reasons for it and as I
mentioned before, one of the biggest ones was
Jeroboam's political decision to
downplay the worship of the Lord which gave
spiritual/legal legitimacy to the southern
Kingdom and chose rather, to give credence to
the idol worship. This was because Jerusalem
had always been the center of the worship of
Yahweh. This is one of they key reason for
Ephraim's backsliding, their leaders were
leading the people astray to the devil's
Yet the next verse shows how deeply the Lord
was agonizing over what he had to do. God
loved Ephraim, like one loves his own son. God
was not pleased about having to do this thing
to his people at all. How shall he give them
up? This passage seems to indicate a deep
conflict within the Lord who did not want to
punish and wanted to be merciful. I think
often we tend to look at God as having some
formula in dealing with us humans, and his
people. No, there is no such mathematical
formula, what there is is a God who loves us
all very deeply and has no desire to see the
punishment of his people.
The images of destruction are very potent
though and we cannot ignore them. God lists
two cities, Admah and Zeboim as being cities
that Israel could become like unto if he
exercises his judgment. What is God referring
to? He is referring to the destruction of
Sodom and Gomorrah.
the border of the Canaanites was from
Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar,
unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom,
and Gomorrah, and Admah, and
Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
Yes, I think what many of us forget is that
when God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, he also
destroyed all the cities of the plain as well.
he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and
toward all the land of the plain,
and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of
the country went up as the smoke of a
And it came to pass, when God
destroyed the cities of the plain,
that God remembered Abraham, and
sent Lot out of the midst of the
when he overthrew the cities in
the which Lot dwelt.
This in my view is a key passage in that it
seems to indicate that God did not want to do
this thing and unlike the cities of the plain,
he would not make a full end of them. In other
words, God in his inner turmoil was not going
to do that to them. His heart was turned
within him, here is how Clarke sums this
heart is turned within me - Justice
demands thy punishment; Mercy pleads for
thy life. As thou changest, Justice
resolves to destroy, or Mercy to save.
My heart is oppressed, and I am weary
with repenting - with so frequently
changing my purpose. All this, though
spoken after the manner of men, shows
how merciful, compassionate, and loath
to punish the God of heaven is. What
sinner or saint upon earth has not been
a subject of these gracious operations?
not execute the fierceness of mine
anger, I will not return to destroy
for I am God, and not man; the
Holy One in the midst of thee: and I
will not enter into the city.
The Lord here determines not make a full end
of him. His wrath will not be executed to the
degree that their sins demanded. Moreover, God
would not to this thing again to them. The
sense here is that God would indeed judge
them, but leave a remnant. Some will survive
and in the latter days, they would spring up
and not be destroyed again. This passage seems
to indicated, albeit vaguely, that after a
long dispersion, God would restore to Ephraim
to fellowship and he would no more be
destroyed. This would not be because of
their own righteousness, but by the Grace of
the most high God. Ezekiel makes some of this
plain in this passage many years later.

uncleannesses: and I will call for the
and will increase it, and lay no
famine upon you. And I will multiply the
fruit of the tree,
and the increase of the field, that
ye shall receive no more reproach of
famine among the heathen.
Then shall ye remember your own
evil ways, and your doings that were not
good, and shall lothe yourselves in your
own sight for your iniquities and for
your abominations. Not for your
sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD,
be it known unto you: be ashamed and
confounded for your own ways, O house
When I read passages like the one above in
Hosea, I cannot help but think that many of
the same thoughts are entering the Lord's
heart about this once great land. I know many
of you think I am some far out prophet who
can't wait to see God Judge America. Nothing
could be further from the truth. My earnest
desire is that our nation gets back to the
basics of God and honor him as so many of our
forebears did. That we would recount all the
blessings that God has given us as a nation
and fall down on our faces and give thanks for
all he has done for us as a nation. That we
would no more go after the ways of Sodom, and
Greed, Mammon and constant warfare. That we as
a people can learn the ways of peace,
righteousness and love. that our nation can
once again be a beacon of light to a world
that has lost its way. We Americans have such
a heritage and I would hope and pray that we
as a people could get back to honoring God
instead of our sexual preferences, and working
for righteousness, rather than filthy lucre,
often violently obtained. I am always struck
by the way that the prophet Jeremiah talks
about the destruction of Babylon. It says that
God would have healed her.
hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S
hand, that made all the earth drunken:
the nations have drunken of her wine;
therefore the nations are mad.
Babylon is suddenly fallen and
destroyed: howl for her; take balm
for her pain,
if so be she may be healed. We would
have healed Babylon, but she is not
forsake her, and let us go every one
into his own country: for her judgment
reacheth unto heaven,
and is lifted up even to the skies.
Some will argue that
Babylonian was never really God's people. That
is correct. But it is also correct that God
called the Babylonian King his servant (Jer 25:9; Jer 27:6; Jer
). So there was some kind
of special relationship that God had with this
King and the empire at the time, even it it
was to be used a a rod of chastisement over
his wayward people.
Moving to today, I think the same holds true
and we must remember that this nation has many
of God's people herein, they are still here
and some still serve him and many more still
seek him. I am aware of the nature and
fullness of so many of America's sins.
But unlike Sodom and apparently the Northern
Kingdom of Hosea's days, there are still some
righteous souls herein. Let us keep this fact
in mind that is often forgotten. God did not
destroy Sodom and Gomorrah solely for their
sexual and other sins. No, the straw that
broke the camel's back was the fact that God
could not find enough righteous souls there
into spare her.
Let's go back and see how Abraham did his best
to bargain with the Lord to spare his nephew
will go down now, and see whether they
have done altogether according to the
cry of it, which is come unto me; and
if not, I will know. And the men
turned their faces from thence, and
went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood
yet before the LORD. And Abraham drew
near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy
the righteous with the wicked?
Peradventure there be fifty righteous
within the city: wilt thou also
destroy and not spare the place for
the fifty righteous that are therein?
That be far from thee to do after this
manner, to slay the righteous with the
wicked: and that the righteous should
be as the wicked, that be far from
thee: Shall not the Judge of all the
earth do right? And the LORD said, If
I find in Sodom fifty righteous within
the city, then I will spare all the
place for their sakes. And Abraham
answered and said, Behold now, I have
taken upon me to speak unto the Lord,
which am but dust and ashes:
Peradventure there shall lack five of
the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy
all the city for lack of five? And he
said, If I find there forty and five,
I will not destroy it. And he spake
unto him yet again, and said,
Peradventure there shall be forty
found there. And he said, I will not
do it for forty's sake. And he said
unto him, Oh let not the Lord be
angry, and I will speak: Peradventure
there shall thirty be found there. And
he said, I will not do it, if I find
thirty there. And he said, Behold now,
I have taken upon me to speak unto the
Lord: Peradventure there shall be
twenty found there. And he said, I
will not destroy it for twenty's sake.
And he said, Oh let not the Lord be
angry, and I will speak yet but this
once: Peradventure ten shall be found
there. And he said, I will not
destroy it for ten's sake. And the
LORD went his way, as soon as he
had left communing with Abraham: and
Abraham returned unto his place.
So yes, it's true that God destroyed Sodom for
its sins, but it is also true that if he could
find 10 righteous souls in it, he would have
spared it. This is one reason why I don't
think the Judgment on America is at neigh
hand. It may come soon, but not right away.
There are still many Christians here in this
nation. Many people think that by fleeing
America we will find peace. But the simple
fact is the whole world is in turmoil. There
are few safe places anymore for God's people.
Latin America has its problems, so also as we
all know Europe. So does, Africa and Asia.
It's like fleeing a rattle snake to get eaten
by a crocodile, or jumping out of a stream
with piranha, and falling into an ocean with
sharks. What is the day of the Lord like. The
Prophet Amos tells us most vividly.
unto you that desire the day of the
LORD! to what end is it for you?
the day of the LORD is darkness,
and not light. As if a man did flee from
and a bear met him; or went into
the house, and leaned his hand on the
wall, and a serpent bit him.
Shall not the day of the LORD be
darkness, and not light? even very dark,
and no brightness in it?
Brothers, go and look at what once nice places
like Sweden is like today, go and look at
Venezuela, think about life in Iraq or Syria.
Try and be a Christian in some parts of
India. Brothers, for those of you who have
itchy feet and think God is telling you to
leave the US and think things are bad here,
know what you are in for when you go to some
of these other places! Make sure you are
heeding God and his Spirit
and not your
own fears and desires. The safest place to be
is where God has put you or moves you.
Back To Hosea 11:9 - This passage may seem a
little confusing, but the sense here is that
God is telling them that he is not going to
judge them as a man does, without mercy and
with great anger, but will deal with them as
God. He reminds them that he is not a man and
that he will not 'enter into the city'.
This is probably an allusion again to the
episode at Admah and Zeboim, when the Lord
himself entered the city to see if all these
evil things told of those who dwelt in those
cities were really true.
shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar
like a lion: when he shall roar,
then the children shall tremble
from the west. They shall tremble as a
bird out of Egypt,
and as a dove out of the land of
Assyria: and I will place them in their
houses, saith the LORD.
This passage foretells of a time when
Israel is restored to the worship of God.
This according to some commentators is a
time when the Messiah comes. Albert Barnes
says this about the passage.
shall walk after the Lord -
Not only would God not destroy them
all, but a remnant of them should
“walk after the Lord,” i. e., they
shall believe in Christ. The Jews of
old understood this of Christ. One
of them saith , “this pointeth to
the time of their redemption.” And
another , “Although I will withdraw
from the midst of them My divine
presence for their iniquity, and
remove them out of their own land,
yet shall there be a long time in
which they shall seek after the Lord
and find Him.” This is what Hosea
has said before, that they should
“abide many days without a king and
without a prince, and without a
sacrifice; afterward shall the
children of Israel return and seek
the Lord their God, and David their
king” Hos_3:4-5. : “Whereas now they
“fled from” God, and “walked after
other gods after the imagination of
their evil hearts, after their own
devices” Hos_7:13; Jer_7:9;
Jer_3:17; Jer_18:12, then he
promises, they shall “walk after God
the Lord,” following the will, the
mind, the commandments - Albert
The phrase shall roar like a lion again
seems to indicate a time of redemption as
this phrase is used by the prophet Joel.
LORD also shall roar out of Zion,
and utter his voice from Jerusalem;
and the heavens and the earth
shall shake: but the LORD will be
the hope of his people,
and the strength of the
children of Israel.
The last part of verse ten when the Lord
makes plain that the Children shall
tremble from the west is probably an
allusion to Gentile nations. The word
translated West is actually two Hebrew

The sense seems to be those places in the
Mediterranean and beyond will fear the

greater European and even African world.
It is not clear to me if this is an
allusion to the Jewish people who return
to the Lord in the last days, or the
Church who becomes part of Israel and
dwells in these parts of the world. Both
may be implied as the term 'my children'
is used. The next passage affirms this.
Hosea says they will come from Egypt and
Assyria. The image here is that of birds
who migrate back to home. The idea of a
home here as Gill points out, is that they
will dwell securely and without the need
for fortified cities. Then the Lord makes
a positive affirmation that he is saying
this and by implication, it cannot be
undone. This will come to pass.
compasseth me about with lies, and
the house of Israel with deceit:
but Judah yet ruleth with God,

Here the Lord contrasts the two kingdoms.
Judah, the Southern Kingdom at the time
was still fairly faithful to the Lord.
Whereas the the Northern Kingdom was false
giving the Lord falsehoods. Most
commentators think this verse should
properly be the first one of chapter 12.

preferable, but it may not be politically

here that I cannot get into. I can say this,
Snowden was no traitor, but it was
essential that the majority of people
believed that he was so that certain
things inside or government could be fixed.
The traitor label was essential as was the
huge initial outcry against him.
If the whole truth about him is ever told,
and I am not sure it will be, I won't tell it,
not without his specific permission,
you will discover that this is one of the
bravest patriots this nation has produced in a
long, long time.
Because I was under such pressure and being
so intensely harassed by some of the bad
influences that reside in our
Government, I really had to be most careful
about what I said about Mr. Snowden and I do
mean exceptionally careful.
But two things I can tell you are these and
they are important. One is that he is not what
he appears to be and two, I am almost certain
that he wants to come home and has wanted to
for a long, time.
Unfortunately, he should have come home some
time ago, but someone dropped the ball - not
out of maliciousness but because they were not

Trust me dear readers, I am telling you all I
can without doing any harm to the security of
the nation and Snowden's personal security.
My view is that the President should double
down efforts to have his case fully
resolved before the election, so that a week
or so after it, he can be back in the US to
face whatever music he must. Don't allow him
to be legally or physically assassinated by
either of these two Presidential candidates,
who will probably throw him to the wolves just
because they can and it appeases the
uninformed mob who will never know the whole

Yes you would.
But that story sadly, may never be told... we
will have to see.
But the revelations that came out because of
Snowden, while men like General Hayden have
decried them, I for one applaud them. They
were absolutely essential to ensure that
America remains a free and open society. There
is a reason why privacy must be protected.
Evil governments who terrorize and murder
their own citizens have always used mass
surveillance as a tool against those whom they
either don't like and later, when the state
reaches 'peak corruption', to rob from anyone
who is not directly connected with that state.
Many people think that all that surveillance
was about catching terrorists. No, it wasn't.
it was about using that anti-terrorism moniker
to create that very kind of 'all-seeing-eye'
state, claim it was to catch terrorists and
actually use it to nab activists, patriots,
journalists, elected officials doing their
duty and making sure that the insider threats
and traitors and thieves were never exposed
and those that tried went to prison. Some
inside the system were using these tools for
the specific purpose of undermining the
Nation's Security, laws and constitutional
protections. Yes, even for locating, tracking
and assassinating law abiding Americans.Though
you will hear howls of protest that this was

Black and am a Christian and blog, they (I am
not making this up or guessing) did the
following things to me.
Why? Because this little site that has a small
amount of traffic, Why did they bother with me?
- Had a team of Federal investigators rent
a nearly condo to spy on and hound me
- They broke into my home multiple times.
- They hacked by site
- They hacked my computer
- They stole my passwords (all of them)
and somehow, some of them wound up in the
hands of Cybercriminals.
- They had investigators hound me at the
local Gym i used to use, the local
restaurant I frequented, got to the
checkout girls at the local grocery store
to question me.
- Got my neighbors to question me and
hound me and spy on me.
- On three separate occasions I caught
neighbors peering into my windows.
- Two of them work in the Intelligence
community, though I don't think they know
that I know that.
- There are couple these people that live
in the complex who always seemed to have a
reason to park their cars as close to my
unit as possible, shine their head lights
into my home and get a good
'unintentional', intentional look
into my home just about every single day.
I won't be too hard on them now because
frankly, I am not sure what kind of
pressure they are under from their bosses,
- They tapped my Cable connection and I am
fairly sure subpoenaed, subverted or
raided the provider of my EU based DNS
- They hacked by VPN connection.
- They had an entire team of Intelligence
officers pouring over my life history
questioning people and reading (stolen)
material from my site.
Folks I am telling you that the Intelligence
community had turned into cowboys and the
abuse of their authority was not
an exception, it was the rule.
Now I am going to tell you why I really think
they hounded me so and why I think what
Snowden did was so very important. I admit, some
of this is just conjecture, some of it
The CIA has teams. These teams work against
each other. This is done by design. The idea
is a good one but it often gets way, way out
of hand. The why's of this can be boiled down
(as much as I understand it) to 'checks and
balances'. Because what they do is so secret,
oversight - legal and otherwise is not
always practicable. So they create an
environment where they have to watch their
backs because the other team gets brownie
points for pointing out your screw ups and
crimes. Like I said, it's a good idea... on
Here is the problem. When (for lack of a
better phrase) the 'Islamic team' came on
board to run
the agency, I am fairly sure that they
started targeting Christians particularly
those who were Bible based fundamentalists -
non violent and pro-peace
fundamentalists. They finagled a way to
twist regulations to start going after any
Bible believing Christian on the web and
elsewhere. Some they went in and blackmailed
and otherwise subverted to preach an 'Islam
friendly' gospel. Those that they could not
subvert.... they dealt with. Think David
Wilkerson's sudden and suspicious crash. There
have been other mishaps of major Christian
personalities - think Bono and the door flying
off of his plane not so long ago and yes, I
still suspect there may be a deeper story with
Prince, but no hard or much even
circumstantial evidence exists for that one.
With me, they tried every trick in the book. I
know. First I was accused as a leaker then I
was a pervert, then I was a gun nut, then I
was crazy, then I was a Russian spy. They ran
me through the gauntlet. This was operation
'nigger catcher' on steroids.
These things are not mistakes. Someone is
targeting Christians and they are powerful
enough to do these things and get away with
Why did they do this? I am not sure. But I
suspect that they wanted to subject Christians
to the same scrutiny that violent Islamic
Fundamentalists were facing. Carefully
ignoring the 'terrorist' and 'violence'
differentiation in their witch hunt.
I know that my Bible based fundamentalism was
indeed a key part of the problem they had with
me. But you see a Bible based Fundamentalist
prays for his enemies and does not hate them,
he does not wage 'Jihad' on them. He turns the
other cheek rather than plants a car bomb at
his enemies kids pre-school. He honors his
neighbor, rather than puts them in slave
dungeons. But these subtle distinctions
did not seem to matter to them.
'Fundamentalist' was all they wanted to hear
and so the crap began. It was the excuse, not
What else is the Muslim Wing up to? They are
putting Muslim interpretation of Scripture all
over the internet including internet
encyclopedias that they have influence/power
over. They are pushing Islamic holidays in the
news papers they have strong influence over or
control. It's hardly a secret that the CIA and
the Washington Post have long had a very
'connection'. Yesterday on their front
page (paper edition) , lead picture and story
was a piece praising the Muslim Holiday
that is under way with the Front Page Headline
'Faithful Celebrate Eid al-Adha." They
praise Islam and set up secret cells to hound
a Black Christian like yours truly and do it
all so that no one has a clue as to what is
really going on.
This Islam thing is much deeper than you may
know. Pay attention and don't look at articles
like this as partisan - people are trying to tell
you something and if you want know who
Mrs. Abedin is, you just have to find a
picture of Hillary and usually in it, you will
find a picture of Huma. She is Hillary's
right hand woman.
The problems in the community are very deep
and far more troubling. Many of your largest
CIA proprietary corporations are household
names. So when you see agenda's of many
corporations shifts, major companies
boycotting this or that or raving against
'Christian Fundamentalists' don't be too hard
on those companies. Often this is being
directed by others inside the Intelligence
community to support an agenda depending on
which team holds sway and how much 'influence'
the community has over that company.
I bring this up for a good reason. Snowden
just barely scratched the surface of the kinds
of reforms needed. No person or group is safe
from a covert apparatus that has no legal
restraint and effectively, this is what we
have had for some time. The things they were
doing were right in your face - they were
taking a dump all over Americans, our laws and
our Constitutional form of Government,
flipping us the bird and saying 'stop us if
you can' and laughing at us all the way to the
bank, or to their Russian, Israeli, Drug
Cartels or Saudi Handlers while the oversight
committee was playing 'hide the weenie' with
their sexy interns.
The good news is that finally the light has
gone on that they have a problem. The problem
is deep enough that a genuine
Constitutional crisis appears to be underway
behind the scenes.
These are very deep problems and just my
bringing these matters up opens me up to a
slight, but real level of danger. But
someone has to tell the people what is
really at stake and why those who you
may think are the nations enemies are its
friends and those with whom enormous trust has
been placed are really no friend of America,
her people or her form of Government.
I say, yes, Pardon Snowden and get real about
deep and fundamental Intelligence
reform. Make sure they have the tools they
need to secure the nation, but make sure that
those within it who commit serious crimes that
they know will do serious harm to the nation,
its laws or its citizens and abuse that trust
have 15-20 years inside a 6 by 9 to reconsider
Let me close by saying this. Most of these
people who work in this world are hard
working, patriotic people who take enormous
risks, face real danger and almost always if
they die in that service, they die
anonymously. You will never know that they
gave their life in service of their country.
So don't think this is some rant against the
hard work these people do. In fact, I would
change the US payscale for CIA Operations
officers who work in the field to reflect the
kinds of dangers they face, as much to
properly compensate them but also to keep the
good ones and make sure they are not lured
away to higher paying jobs, That and to
perhaps make the temptation of bribery less
But with that money comes responsibility. They
have to know that betrayal of trust will mean
they will know first hand the exact weight of
the ton of bricks that will land on them by the
entire legal apparatus of the US government
should they choose to betray it.
But none of these things should happen without
that deep and fundamental reform.
Oh, and one other thing. For reasons I cannot
get into, I have good reasons to believe that
Snowden may very well be a Christian. So
....pray for him!!

Is A War Coming?
This is a
food for thought article. I ask all of you
to read this, click on the links and step
back and consider carefully what I am saying
and am not saying. This is no time
to panic or spread fear. But at the same
time, we must not be so foolish as to not
understand what may very well be on our way
before very long - MSW (9-10-16)
I think one is likely to come, though what
form it takes I do not know. I have been
looking a few stories that seem to indicate
that our Federal government is preparing for
some kind of war and a war to be fought right
here in America.
I am not going to panic anyone here as I
think many of the preparations the government
is making are prudent. But they are planning
for something that is catastrophic. When you
hear the words 'continuity of government' what
they mean is that order has broken down in
America to a degree that there is no
government in most places and those who are in
power are creating ways to make sure they can
run things when, as the saying goes, 'the
stuff hits the fan'. This could mean a nuclear
war, a major highly infections deadly
pandemic, some kind of coup or violent
is a link that deals with some of those
things along with what the CDC is
planning for. Massive bunkers and medicines?
Yes, they have them and more.... much more.
Like what you might ask?
Forced vaccinations? Yes,
they are coming. The
CDC is already in the review process
on this right now. This is nothing more
than Big Pharma looking to pad their
profits because they will charge
governments (Fed, state and local) as well
as any NGO and companies plenty of cash to
I hope you get a chance to read that link,
you will find some of the facts that our
leaders don't want discussed.. Moreover I
will tell you this is exactly what
powerful folks have been pushing for
mandatory vaccines. Why? You are not going
to want to believe this, but I will tell
the human population.
I want to make this clear as well. Vaccine
makes are totally immune from
prosecution, even if they kill you and
your whole family. I think it wise
to remind readers here who these vaccine
makers really are and their corporate
and most importantly here.
Many of today's big Pharma companies are
direct decedents of Hitlers Massive IG
Farben... who operated the concentration
camps of Nazi Germany.
Mostly I can tell you this is all about
those privileged group of government
contractors making money from disaster
preparedness. Billions will be spent
before this is all said and done.
That does not mean that plans should not
be made. The truth is, a war is coming.
The US is doing a good job at really
pissing off its friends and enemies and
they are all now beginning to chafe at the
bit at American hegemony. The people who
run this nation are for the most part,
pretty craven and power mad. They will not
go down without starting a major war. A
war that will one day reach our shores in
probably some of the worst ways a war can.
America is not the only nation preparing
for war. The Germans
are as well.
Simply put, the why's of this war I have
talked about at length here. All of the
governments America's covert operators
have overthrown and destabilized using
their 'topple-a-democracy' cookbook have
created enormous resentment in some
quarters. We have and are making enemies
faster with ever increasing rapidity. The
world no longer trusts us and a couple of
very powerful players are setting up a
very different 'new world order' than the
one that has been in place for the past 50
years. These players will never
bow before American hegemony ever again
and America will not give up that hegemony
without going to war. So I am here to tell
you that unless we get new leadership in
our nation that will change course, be
assured that sooner or later a war will
come and it will not not be a pretty one.
China and Russia have already tied the
knot to form a new alliance and other
nations are playing the US off against
these two rising powers hopefully to their
advantage. But more and more they see that
our word cannot be trusted, our treaties
are not worth much and if they don't kiss
Uncle Sam's foot and wipe his backside,
the CIA will come in and start a coup
This is how much of the world is coming to
view America. Even our long term allies,
like Japan and Britain are hedging their
bets and doing what they can to make sure
they chose the right side in this battle.
America was hoping to completely surround
(contain) Russia geographically using NATO
in the West, making an attempt to subvert
the former Central Asian republics to
Russia's South West, and using Japan and
Korea in the East, the US strategy was to
contain Russia geographically and wear her
down with bad relations and troublesome
events all along her periphery over the
The NATO plan is in motion, but not working very
well, other than causing Russia a moderate
degree of economic discomfort. The Central Asian
plan clearly has not been set in motion yet.
This is probably for several reasons. First, the
nations in that region are authoritarian and
take a strong interest in stability. They have
the tools necessary to 'take out' trouble makers
and foreign owned de stabilizers with little to
no fuss. It will not be easy to destabilize them
in the manner they did elsewhere. Moreover it is
clear that Russia
will certainly intervene in a situation
that got out of hand. The other option the US
has is pretty much the same one they are now
using in Syria - to destabilize it using
terrorist proxy armies (and label them
'rebels'), arm them, fund them and give them
logistical and intelligence support to
destabilize the region. This, I suspect is
probably now in the works. Yet the age and
health of the rulers in that part of the world
is also of great importance. A few days ago, Uzbekistan
lost its Soviet Era leader Islam Karimov
and right now a power struggle is underway. Kazakhstan's
leader is hardly a spring chicken.
Asia is a deeper problem for American
containment and destabilization efforts. With
Russia and China now close and many of America's
long time allies in the region questioning
America's commitment to their security, they
will think long and hard about assisting America
in any such efforts aimed at the Russian Bear.
Besides, some like Japan see an opportunity now
to relax tensions and perhaps slowly join the new
Asian partnership that is growing between
Russia and China. Vast energy resources as well
as a new economic as well as military
alliance is now being slowly created. It
is an alliance that specifically rejects Western
institutions and norms and is creating something
that some see as being far more supportive of
their collective interests.
Asia, especially with China flexing its muscles
in the China sea is a very different situation
for that containment plan. If I had to sum up
the feelings many of our long times allies have
of us these days, I would use these words -
confusion and growing distrust. No one trusts us
any more, not really. I am not so much blaming
Obama, as I think many key decisions are being
made by a collection of people who have their
economic and political agenda's
that have little to do with American security.
So I would look for, over the long haul, many to
quietly and subtlety shift their allegiance to
this new alliance, that will offer them what
they want - prosperity and security.
light of the the thrust of this article
(government preparations), it would
behoove me to make sure we understand a
few things. The Russians used
to have a significant biowarfare
capability. Congress once looked in
so long ago. The Chinese still do
and often deploy and test their bio
weapons on human subjects all over the
world. Many of these new viruses we
hear about are actually bioweaons,
targeted at either humans or agriculture
(economic warfare). I say this because if
this really does come to a real hot war,
all the stops will come out and be
assured, some of the most toxic and potent
and immune system resistant/attacking
pestilences will hit the US hard and fast
and it will take us weeks or months just
to figure out who hit us.
They are preparing for diseases that have
not even been identified yet, let alone
they have a cure or a vaccine for. If
Russia has kept up its bioweaons research,
as the US has (despite any treaty both
have signed). it stands to reason that
they have a very significant capability.
How many of you remember many years ago
the mystery of the disappearing or murdered
microbiologists? You may want to
read this and find
out more. Keep that 'ethno-specific'
idea in mind, we will return to it.
This coming biowar has been in the making
for a long time. One of the key reasons
American bioscientsts were killed was to
prevent or at least delay the creation of
cures and countermeasures to weapons
others were and are going to deploy. So
somebody took it upon themselves to make
sure that that capability was done away
with long before we even knew what was
being planned. Thankfully a few sharp
minds figured it out. But let me tell you
some of these Scientists to this very day
are being held hostage and are being
forced to work for foreign governments to
create new 'death viruses' to attack the
enemies of their captors.
I want to stress this is not wild eyed
conspiracy stuff, this stuff really
happens. The world is an increasingly dark
place where much of the real action and
real evil is hidden from most Americans.
Such evil, many of them are not capable of
grasping as they never come in contact
with such wickedness in their pretty
little world of illusion, fantasy
football, movies, Prozac and porn.
One can only guess as to the other reasons
for these preparations. But one must
consider the possibility of a major
natural disaster occurring, a major 9.0
quake in LA or San Francisco, A
series of major hurricanes hitting the
American South Coast in rapid succession.
Or perhaps an EMP attack that knocks out
the power grid in the nation for weeks or
even months. These things can happen and
our government would be most unwise if
they did not make some kind of
preparations. So preparations are in

Yes, I think America is going to go to
war. Not right away, but they are going to
keep nipping at the heels of the Russians
and Chinese, continue to anger our allies
and sooner or later, these nations are
going to strike back and give the American
nation and most importantly its elite a
taste of the medicine they have been
dishing out to the rest of the world in
large and unrepentant doses for decades.
This is the simple law of Human nature.

going to be pushed around forever and
ultimately this is what our problem is
with Russia and to a lesser degree with
China. They are tired of being preached to
bullied and otherwise coerced into
policies that don't benefit their nations
or their people. That sheen, that light
that was once around America is gone and
people more and more are seeing her as she
really is. They are tired of being kicked
in the groin by our leaders for the crime
of wanting to be secure and prosperous.

these things, thinking somehow I desire to
see these things. I most certainly
do not. But I can tell a guy who
loves to kick his pet bulldog in the gut
three times a day as hard as he can that
sooner or later that dog is going to turn
on him and do it in a very painful and
perhaps even crippling way.
He can choose to continue to be a cruel
knucklehead or take some friendly advice.
Prophetically I see nothing really new
here. America will continue to engage in
policies that create such a hatred against
her that one day, 10 powerful entities
will one day rise to rulership for the
express purpose of destroying America and
the Bible tells us they will succeed. This
is a theme I need not repeat to readers
here at Watson's Web. I also think that
the reality that we are now seeing in the
arctic, and the Russian moves there and
the new nuclear stance Russia has been
taking since the US overthrew the elected
government in Ukraine in order to
'contain' Russia with a hostile and yes,
Nazi government that the winds of a major
global war are indeed growing to such a
degree that I see no realistic way to stop
No, it's not going to happen right away.
We will continue to see what we are
seeing. Hotspots that turn into proxy
wars, sanctions, rows, near misses on the
seas in in the air. Each side is testing
the other. Why?
Because both sides know a war is coming.

that this is now the epitaph and legacy of

Israel was a child, then I loved him, and
called my son out of Egypt.
As they called them, so they went
from them: they sacrificed unto
Baalim, and burned incense to graven
This verse shows God's long
love for Israel. Like a father to his new born
child, God loved Israel. But later as we all
know during the times of Moses, they corrupted
themselves. This eleventh chapter of Hosea, as
Adam Clarke puts it, is "...a very pathetic
representation of God’s tender and
affectionate regard for Israel, by metaphors
chiefly borrowed from the conduct of mothers
toward their tender offspring."
apostasy, backsliding and ingratitude are the
basic theme of this chapter as God briefly
lays out Israel's spiritual history. But also
present is a message of God's mercy and
compassion. God called Israel his son
when they came out of Egypt and then he
recounts how they repaid him, with wickedness
and faithlessness. When God's prophets and
priests called on the people to the worship of
the most high, what did they do? They went to
sacrifice to the devil.
Why do people do that? It's not just ancient
Israel, it's people throughout the ages. It's
because God has a strict
He hates lying, stealing, killing, hating,
defrauding, cruelty to he weak and poor... all
of these things he hates
. But you see,
man has no such hatred of these things,
especially if there is gain to be had in
engaging in them. People don't want to do
right, they want gain and most will stoop
pretty low to get it. Israel went after
Baalim. FYI, here is what Eaton's Bible
Dictionary has to say about Baal.
appropriated to the principal male god
of the Phoenicians. It is found in
several places in the plural BAALIM
(Jdg_2:11; Jdg_10:10; 1Ki_18:18;
Jer_2:23; Hos_2:17). Baal is identified
with Molech (Jer_19:5). It was known to
the Israelites as Baal-peor (Num_25:3;
Deu_4:3), was worshipped till the time
of Samuel (1Sa_7:4), and was afterwards
the religion of the ten tribes in the
time of Ahab (1Ki_16:31-33; 1Ki_18:19,
1Ki_18:22). It prevailed also for a time
in the kingdom of Judah (2Ki_8:27;
compare 2Ki_11:18; 2Ki_16:3; 2Ch_28:2).
till finally put an end to by the severe
discipline of the Captivity (Zep_1:4-6).
The priests of Baal were in great
numbers (1Ki_18:19), and of various
classes (2Ki_10:19). Their mode of
offering sacrifices is described in
1Ki_18:25-29. The sun-god, under the
general title of Baal, or “lord,” was
the chief object of worship of the
Canaanites. Each locality had its
special Baal, and the various local
Baals were summed up under the name of
Baalim, or “lords.” Each Baal had a
wife, who was a colourless reflection of
himself. - Eaton's Bible
People will always seek a religion that
affirms rather than rebukes their evils, feeds
their lusts rather than controls them and fans
their hate rather than their love. This is the
bane of false religion, it appeals to the
flesh and darker side of man.
Yet God's commandments were not so grievous
and Israel should have been most thankful for
his protecting and guiding hand. They were
taught Ephraim also to go, taking them
by their arms;
but they knew not that I healed
them. I drew them with cords of a man,
with bands of love: and I was to
them as they that take off the yoke on
and I laid meat unto them.
Again, this passage talks
about Ephraim when he was young. The phrase 'taught
him to do'
is has a slightly different
connotation in the Hebrew, the word is.
A denominative from H7270; to cause
to walk: - teach to go.
God is showing the tender love a father has
for his young child as he teaches him to walk.
The phrase 'taking him by this arms'
could also be rendered, 'in his arms
He is describing love of a father for a son as
he learns how to walk. This passage is
reminiscent of Moses back in the book of
LORD your God which goeth before you, he
shall fight for you,
according to all that he did for
you in Egypt before your eyes;
And in the wilderness, where thou
hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare
as a man doth bear his son, in all
the way that ye went, until ye came into
Yet in this thing ye did not
believe the LORD your God,
Hosea here describes how God
guided Israel in the right way while he
was still young. When he was but a babe
and was unable to understand, God healed
him and cared for him. It was God who
delivered them and cared for them in the

cords that are meant in verse for are not
literal cords, but more like the bands of
love. Here is how JFB sums up the phrase.
Hos 11:4 -
cords of a man--parallel to "bands of
love"; not such cords as oxen are led by,
but humane methods, such as men employ when
inducing others, as for instance, a father
drawing his child, by leading-strings,
teaching him to go (Hos_11:1). - JFB
The second part of the verse 'take
off the yoke on their jaws' again
demonstrates God's deep love towards Israel and
this time a farming analogy is used. The analogy
appears to be of God delivering Israel from the
yoke of slavery during their time in Egypt.
Verse five mentions that they will not return to
Egypt. This passage is not clear and earlier
versions (Arab and the Septuagint) render the
passage "and Ephraim dwelt in Egypt",
but this seems incorrect. The HNV version
translates verse 5 like this.
won't return into the land of Egypt; but
the Ashur will be their king,
because they refused to repent.
This I think gives the
passage more clarity. God is telling them
that they are not going back to Egypt, a
place the kings were looking for aid against
the Assyrians, nor were they going to go
back there as captives. No, their fate would
be with the far less merciful Assyrians. The
sense here may be that they should not go to
Egypt for refuge, as some probably already
had. The reason for all this coming trouble
is stated clearly, God sent them prophets
and they refused to repent. All of those
crimes and sins that they had committed had
a price. The setting up of the calf, Baal
worship, all of it, God saw it and
would remember it. The result was that the
sword would overtake their cities and their
cities would fall to Assyria. The branches
here probably means all the adjoining towns
and hamlets of the cities. The strife as
both external and internal. This was
the result of not hearkening to the counsel
of the Lord and rather, listening to their
own 'idol influenced' advise. Adam Clarke
describes what was going on in this
shall abide on his cities - Israel
was agitated with external and intestine
wars from the time of Jeroboam the Second.
Although Zechariah his son reigned twelve
years, yet it was in continual troubles;
and he was at last slain by the rebel
Shallum, who, having reigned one month,
was slain by Menahem. Pekahiah succeeded
his father Menahem, and reigned two years,
and was killed by Pekah, son of Remaliah.
He joined Rezin, king of Syria, and made
an irruption into the land of Judah; but
Ahaz having obtained succor from
Tiglath-Pileser, king of Assyria, Pekah
was defeated, and the tribes of Reuben,
Gad, Naphtali, and the half-tribe of
Manasseh, were carried away captives by
the Assyrian king; and in a short time
after, Hosea, son of Elah, slew Pekah and
usurped the kingdom, which he could not
possess without the assistance of
Shalmaneser, who for his services imposed
a tribute on the Israelitish king. Wishing
to rid himself of this yoke, he applied to
the king of Egypt; but this being known to
Shalmaneser, he came against Samaria, and
after a three years’ siege took and
destroyed it. Thus the sword rested on
their cities; it continued in the land
till all was ruined. - Clarke
When a people forsake the Lord, this
is the result. Corruption, murder, and chaos.
God was trying to lead Israel in the way she
should go since he was a babe. God cared for her
just like a baby. Yet this is how he is repaid,
a people who had become depraved upon their
idols, lust and violence.
The wages of sin.
I use the above stroy merely as a lead in for
something that is missing from the debate
today as Senators and political pundits are
blaming Russia for hacks and vandalism of
which she may or may not be responsible. Some
of the hacks we have heard about and have been
blamed on Russia were not committed by them
and our Intelligence officials carefully
intimated this, but no one is listening.

droppings we are hearing in the media and not
be swayed by the odious wind that emanates
from those droppings should read this and
cogitate carefully about what I am
saying here. I know much more than I can post
and am posting all safely can. I usually
reserve some of these more sensitive issues
for my insiders, but for reasons that will be
plain to wiser readers, I have decided to post
this one here.
Finally this was written a few weeks ago and
there have been many developments since then.
I also think for disclosure reasons I should
say that my ordeal with the Fed's running all
the crap they did against me is not totally
unrelated to these things. They tried to set
me up to provide a false trail of evidence to
link me with someone to give them an excuse to
raid my home and run their operation 'nigger
catcher' on me. All I can post about that
ordeal is in the letter to Sen. Mikulski found
on the left hand column of this page. I cannot
say more as the safety of others and ongoing
operations could be jeopardized if I did.
The Leak Wars
I have not talked much about these leaks and
that is for a reason. There is indeed a lot
more going on than meets the eye or I can talk
about. Doing so really could harm the security
of the nation and even put a few folks in very
serious danger. This is not based on
guesswork, so if I am a little vague on some
issues here, it is for a reason. But I cannot
let this subject alone because the issues they
effect are of the greatest importance for
America. The people have a right to be better
informed than they have been, but for reasons
that may or not be clear after you read this,
no, they don't need to know the whole story.
This short piece is designed not to
spill secrets, but to give readers here some
background to help you discern what is really
going on rather than the political spin. Those
who are in the know can't talk about these
things. I can but only with great care and
ensuring that no one is harmed and certainly
not the nations security.
As you may be aware, the Hillary email leak now
has a Russian aspect to it. Well, I have
known for a couple of years that the Russians
had tried to hack those mails and get hold of
them. I did not think it prudent to post it as
I did not have sufficient background on the
issue and did not want to tip anyone's hand
inadvertently. I have often done that and will
continue to. But today things have changed and
I want to say this first that there are many
inside the US security apparatus who are
afraid of Clinton and what she represents. No,
not her policies stated (any of them) but the
things she has been doing in secret. They are
are viewed as a major National Security
threat, a powerfully protected
National Security Threat. The leaked
emails are just the tip of the iceberg. I
should say the smallest tip of a very large
When our security people cannot get key
politico's to move and do their Jobs (like
Loretta Lynch. And Mr. Comey to name only
the most recent and well known) who protect
criminality rather than prosecute it, these
people are charged with using various means to
put pressure on corrupted law enforcement
people, elected representatives, bureaucrats
to as the saying goes, 'get off the dime'.
This is their job and they get paid a
federal paycheck to do this. So let me
make this clear, while there is certainly a
political aspect to these leaks in the US, the
real issue is National Security. It has been very
seriously compromised and as a result there
are those who are trying to control and
perhaps even undo some of the damage. More
importantly they are trying to keep these
things from happening again. The problem is
they are not getting the support from the many
who hold high political office who have other
motivations for not prosecuting serious crimes
of this nature.
So what is all this Russia stuff about? The
simple fact is, Russia is a state actor and
will try and steal secrets. If a sitting
Secretary of State is dumb enough to put Top
Secret (and higher) information on an
unsecured server, the Russians the Chinese,
and anyone will try and steal them. Would not
our security people try and steal the secrets
of Xi or Putin if they were dumb enough to put
their secrets on an unsecured server? Of
course we would and if our security people did
not try, frankly they would not be doing their
jobs. Did Russia do it? Don't
jump to conclusions. There are powerful
folks in both parties who are doing all they
can to demonize Russia, to manufacture a
'hate' against them so that they can start a
A Russian security person who did not make a
reasonable attempt to get at those mails would
probably not live long enough to discover his
mistake. Dear readers, this is a dirty, filthy
rotten business. Be assured not just our
enemies would be trying to get at them, but
our friends would as well, no doubt about
it. The Brits, Germans, Israeli's,
Saudi's - the Mexicans, the French even the
Canadians. If she was dumb enough to leave the
door unlocked, they are smart enough to help
themselves to whatever they find. These are
the 'rules' of this game - there are no rules
other than get the secrets anyway you can and
try to do it in a way that no one knows you
took them, which is not always possible.
Hillary's attempt to cast dispersion on Russia
and Trump as though they colluded is not only
dishonest, it's downright insulting. Hillary
knows the real deal and how those mails came
to be in the hands of the the Russians and
Wikileaks. There is a reason why some national
security secrets are 'leaked' (semi-legally)
overseas. Why? Because they dare not leak them
here. Why not? Three main reasons.
First, no major news outlet will publish them.
Our media are often in bed with the criminals
and traitors have no desire to get embroiled
in a political tussle should they leak this
kind of data. Their job is to make money. You
make money by selling subscriptions and ads.
Start leaking data and many advertisers will
shy away from you not knowing the real
reasons things are being leaked. They
want to avoid controversy.
Second, this administration has been merciless
on low and mid level leakers.
Third our system is too corrupt. This is not
just my opinion. It's why so many leaks are
leaked overseas. They know that once a leaker
starts leaking, they will die soon, suddenly
and violently. This was the lesson of the
Micheal Hastings crash/explosion and the only
thing he did was leak the CIA's director's
illicit kiss-and-tell affair. The system is
rotting from within. Major crimes dealing
directly with the nations security cannot be
prosecuted because of the deep and systemic
corruption in America and her federally
appointed officials. Those who expose
that corruption go to jail (whislteblowers) or
have significantly abbreviated life
expectancy's. I can tell you this much -
some of these leakers have to live with heavy,
heavy security in order just to stay
alive. But they have to do it from overseas -
America's security apparatus as well, has been
significantly, but not thoroughly corrupted.
So if you see more leaks come out about Mrs.
Clinton, this is not about some rogue guy or
group who just hates Democrats or the
Clinton's, there is a much larger and
murkier background story that I can only
drop a few broad hints about to readers here.
In short, people are trying to compel elected
officials to stop succumbing to political
pressure, bribes and promises of million
dollar a year jobs when they leave office and
do their jobs to protect the nation.
Lynch's and Comey's decision not to prosecute
Clinton is prima facia evidence of just how
rotten American law enforcement really is and
that this corruption has no race or party
What is going on really? America really is at
a crossroads. Can she deal with serious
national security crimes of her elite or can
they sell off the nations secrets to the
highest bidder? All paid to in their offshore
accounts and done with an impunity at an
American population that has been lied to and
propagandized to the point that a consistent
train of rational thought is a major effort
and perhaps unattainable feat for many, if not
most of them.
Yes, this really is the issue because Clinton
is not the only person in high places
doing evil things to the nation because they
are politically impregnable. Again this is far
less about Clinton than it is about a major
systemic problem no one has the guts to deal
with even with the tools the laws already on
the books have given them... unless of course
the perpetrator is a very low level person who
has no political pull - think Manning and
So expect your favorite leak site to have a
lot more data to come out soon that may shock
many of you.
This is the backdrop. Forget about all the
headline grabbing floatsam you are reading
about those mails and these hacks and the
phony calls by elected officials for specious
time and money wasting 'investigations'
designed merely to spin the issue politically.
There are considerably deeper issues at stake
that insiders by law cannot
So now, the politicians can lie and lie like
the devil and dare anyone to tell the
truth or they will wind up going to jail
for revealing classified data... so they can
lie some more.

laws to undermine the security of the

these things in very different light and

do right, but the crooks y-o-u

How are those Chinese language lessons
A rather interesting leak of internal DNC
emails and memorandum
She gave an
impassioned speech yesterday, but to no
avail. This from what I can tell, was a vendetta
against the left leaning workers party by those
on the right with considerable help from the US
to send one of the key lynchpin's of the BRICS
alliance into the US sphere of orbit at best or
into chaos if that does not work. In the
meantime, to get a government in power who would
sell off as much of the nation as quickly as
possible before another government comes to
power that looks out for the people.
But as the Common Dreams article makes clear,
the whole nation is a hotbed of serious
corruption. What did ol' Bernie Sanders say
about this some time ago?
"After suspending Brazil's first
female president on dubious grounds, without
a mandate to govern, the new interim
government abolished the ministry of women,
racial equality, and human rights. They
immediately replaced a diverse and
representative administration with a cabinet
made up entirely of white men. The new,
unelected administration quickly announced
plans to impose austerity, increase
privatization, and install a far right-wing
social agenda," Sanders' statement

Well, one aspect of the immigration debate
that has not gained a lot of traction in the

are all of these immigrants being housed? Who
houses them and where? Most importantly
(politically) for how much money?
Yes, money is a key aspect of the whole

Yesterday, the Obama administration began a
serious re-think of the whole for-profit
prison scheme. As this article makes clear,
this follows in the heels of the DOJ's plan to
phase out for-profit federal prisons, There
are many reasons for this. The primary reason
cited in the Bureau of Prisons IG report and
they are numerous - safety and security
deficiencies and more. but let me just give
you a screen shot or two of portions of the
of Prisons IG Report
Two major prison contractors are GEO and
Correction Corporation of America are two key
contractors for the Federal Government. According
to Seeking Alpha, the DOJ's decision is
significant but the DHS's move is even more so
as it represents a far higher portion of their
The conditions that many of these people live
under is not good at all and hardly a
reflection of what we as Americans should
tolerate. A woman
still bleeding for surgery being placed back
in her cell, women struggling with
depression, suicide attempts and other
mental health issues. These things ought
not to be and should be handled better.
But these prison fims have political friends,
Maro Rubio. Who else? Well, Hillary
Clinton as well has taken their money. Though
she has 'promised' to end the practice of
private prisons. You can read more about where
their money is going. (great links in
that one!). The excellent Marshall Project has
a great piece here
on this as well.
Many of my readers would like to know exactly
and were I stand in these issues.
Simple - things like private prisons
may sound good on paper, but the reality is
that you create a financial incentive to not
only lock people up, but to create new crimes
and new offenses to lock more people up,
bolstering your profit margin. I am
certainly not against incarcerating criminals,
particularly violent ones. We need prisons for
serious offenders. We don't need to
incentivize incarcerating people in the manner
we have seen. What happens is you get a
production quota of people who are placed in
facilities (for profit) and are put to work
and for all intents and purposes are enslaved,
for profit. Once you put large sums of money
in motion like that, it becomes very difficult
to break the racket up.
My own views are that we have far, far too
many people in jail. We have by far the most
people in some kind of jail than any other
nation on earth by far. I
think one of the main reasons is the economic
incentives and dollarization of our entire
legal profession, from the Supreme Court right
down to the lowly prison guard.
Too much money flows into our system to make
it truly a system based in Justice rather than
profit and political expediency. In short, I
see this as just one outgrowth of systemic
problem in our Criminal Justice system. The
for-profit Prison industry and its
glaring contradictions are just easier for
most to understand and for pundits and
bloggers to put into a clear moral context.
But the problems in American Justice - from
the Judges, to the district attorney's to the
cops on the beat even to the defense
attorney's is a deep and systemic one and one
that will not be easy to fix.
This is big step in the right direction,
getting private money out of the criminal
justice system. But this is only a first step.
The political paybacks for favorable corporate
rulings, the indirect bribery that comes in
the form of shady real estate and book deals,
the dirty cops who get shielded by politically
connected police chiefs... these are problems
that will take many years and great political
skill to root out.

Missionary Law Gets First American Victim
8/26/2016 Washington, D.C. (International
Christian Concern) – ICC
has learned that the first American citizen
has been charged under Russia’s new
“anti-terror” or “Yarovaya laws.” While
ostensibly aimed at countering extremist
activity, the newly implemented laws also

without proper government authorization
According to Forum
18, an independent Baptist minister,
Donald Ossewaarde, was formally charged and
appeared before a court hearing on August 14
in the town of Oryol, approximately 226
miles southwest of Moscow. On the day in
question, three police officers entered
Ossewaarde’s home as he was conducting a
worship service. Guests were questioned by
police and Pastor Ossewaarde was taken to
the local police station where he was
charged under Article 5.26, Part 2 of the
highly controversial Yarovaya laws,
otherwise known as the “anti-missionary”
Legally defining missionary activity is a

missionary activity according to the
- The activity is done by a religious
organization/group or by an authorized
entity or individual on its behalf
- They are briefing the individual about
the doctrines of their faith
- The purpose is to encourage individuals
to join the organization/group
- You are engaging an individual who is
not a member or “believer” of your faith
- The activities are carried out publicly,
either through the internet, media, or
Pastor Ossewaarde was handed a fine of
40,000 Rubles (621 USD) and is appealing the
fine despite his court-appointed legal
counsel advising against it. According to
his attorney from the Slavic
Center for Law and Justice, he was not
able to defend his client at the hearing as
the court refused to provide him enough time
He joins three other individuals who have
been targeted under this new law since its

Nate Lance, ICC’s Advocacy Manager, stated,
“It is disheartening to see how quickly
the Russian government has started to
misapply this terrible law. What was meant
as a law to curb terrorist activity is
punishing those who are simply seeking to

None of this should be a total shock to
those of us who know our God and our Bibles.
The severest of persecutions were foretold
in our Bibles in the book of Revelation.
Here is a passage therefrom

and went away to make war with the rest
of her seed,

The situation in
Mesopotamia is by far the worst, but it is
hardly the only place where Christians are
severely and viciously persecuted. The
passage above is cited not to
show a perfect fulfillment in what we are
seeing, but rather to show of of things to
come. This passage is significant because it
happens after the devil has lost his battle
in heaven and is cast directly down to
earth, along with his fallen host of angels.
When this event is to happen is not clear to
me, but I would say look to the world system
to take on more and more satanic
characteristics when it does.
Have we seen any of that today? I think we
have seen a great deal of it. Think of a few
key characteristics of the devil, deceit,
murder, arrogance and perversions. Have
these things risen significant in recent
I would however remind readers of this
potent fact. That the final form of the 10
horned and 7 headed system rises up after
satan is cast down and the rise of that
system is probably a direct outgrowth of his
discharge from the heavenly realm.
There is no break in the scriptures between
this vision of the woman and the dragon and
the rise of the two Beast systems (10 horn 7
headed/False prophet). Both are given their
power from that dragon.
So don't let anyone panic you as to the fate
of Christianity in the region or our world.
The devil is going to work overtime to get
rid of us... all and he will have many a
success. But that should not trouble is too
much as this is exactly what our Lord told
us would happen.
If I have any word on this for readers here
it is this one, give to us directly by Jesus
And be not afraid of them
that kill the body, but are not able to
kill the soul:
but rather fear him who is able to
destroy both soul and body in hell.

Father: but the very

Fear not therefore:
ye are of more value than many sparrows.

who shall confess me before men, him
will I also confess before
my Father who is in heaven. But
whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father
who is in heaven.

I am often chided that my writings are not
'America first' enough. But there are
other criticisms I get as well. One dear
reader of my many months ago, got rather angry
with me because I said I was a loyal American.
Well, I am. I make no apologies for it. This
is still a great country and has many great
things about it. My criticism of her? Let me
give you a little parable about it.
A mother had two sons. Each grew
up to be health and normal. But as the years
passed, mother somehow got hooked on Heroin.
No one knows how, but they think maybe it
started with the pain from a hip replacement
she had. But today, there is no mistaking
it, Mama is hooked on H. The sad part is,
she likes it.
Son number one just goes along with
Mama, he goes down to the local dope dealer
and gets mama all the dope she wants, lets
her lay in bed and listen to her psychedelic
music from the 60's while she spaces out and
basically just goes along with whatever Mama
wants. He thinks he will get more from the
will (money) if he smiles up in Mama's face
and slowly helps kill her in the process.
Son number two is different. He has
tried and tried to get Mama to stop, even
going so far as to hiding her dope or
flushing it down the toilet when he finds
it, he has tried to have the dope dealer
arrested and is doing all he can to save his
mother from certain death by OD. Mama
gets real mad at son number two because of
Here is my question.
Which son loved his mother more?
I don't think that one needs me to answer it.
But this brings me to the question of
loyalty. One was looking out for his mother,
the other was looking out for what he could
get from his mother.
Me? I am that second son for this nation. I
may be critical, expose some crookedness, try
and bring some light to a nation and world
gone insane with 24-7 propaganda. I am not
going to 'go along' with evil and corruption
just because I think it may be in my short
term economic interest to do so. This is one
reason why I don't have ads here, don't link
to too many other sites, don't get into the
economic bed with those who will one day want
to leverage the money I could potentially make
here to silence me or otherwise alter the
things that I post. I have to remain as
independent as I can or sooner or later they
will make life and blogging difficult for me.
So I speak truth to power and do so pretty
fearlessly but not foolishly and I get hell
for it. Yes I do and have made some enemies of
some of the most powerful men in America.
But my criticism is not out of hatred for the
country or its people, just the opposite. I
say, America does not need any more 'Heroin'
it needs to repent get right and root out the
rot and corruption within her. Me? I would
flush all the evil and corruption that is
killing America right down the toilet if I
could, but I can't. Brother number one (herd
mentality Americans, TV zombie) won't let me.
They are already down at the Testament Lawyers
office getting ready to make off with the loot

But the reader I referred to earlier, I think
what he was really mad about was that I did
not go on an anti-American diatribe rather
than say I am loyal to the country.
Brothers and sisters, we have a duty to be

A duty to honor the leaders, a duty to pray
for them, a duty to obey the laws and to not
be known as a group of trouble makers and
all men. Love the brotherhood.

Now these passages have been talked about at
length by so many, some trying to downplay
their importance and others using it as an
excuse for total inaction when governments get
out of control.
What this passage says is simple. We are to
be honest, honorable, law abiding people who
show loyalty (honor) to the rulers. Paul says
that generally, the law is there to punish
evil doers, murderers, rapists, thieves, etc.
In this we are to as much as possible respect
their authority as well as their power, for
the Apostle makes plain, it comes from
God. When you resist their power
you are resisting God. Now we can go about a
long theological argument about if ever a
Christian should be part of a revolution. I
tend to think not or at the least believe that
it it is spiritually most unwise, especially
in these times. I know I will never take
part in one, at least not one that cannot be
effected at the ballot box.
Keep in mind who wrote this and when. It was
written by the Apostle Paul in the 1st
century. It was probably written about 57 AD
which would have been the time Nero was
I point this out to say this. This holy
Apostle lays out that even with a man like
Nero on the Imperial throne, he enjoins all
Christians to honor the king, obey the laws
and to honor all men. Also keep in mind that
most Romans were pagans at that time.
I often hear many Christians rant about this
President or that person in the Senate or the
courts. But I say this - things may be bad and
getting worse here, but simply put no one in
their right minds can say that we have slid to
the level of a Nero, at least not yet and
even if we did, the commandment would
still apply, honor the King show respect to
those who uphold and make our laws, and for
God's sake, don't let Christianity be
associated with troublemakers, lawbreakers or
This I think was a secret fear that many of
the Apostles had. There had to enormous
yearning for freedom for Rome's underclasses
who were slaves to break free of their chains
and overthrow the existing political order.
Remember, that not so long ago in Roman
History, they had literal slave revolts known
as the Servile wars. Many of you have seen the
old and newer versions of Spartacus, well he
led what is known as the Third Servile War.
The Servile Wars
were a series of three slave revolts
("servile" is derived from "servus",
Latin for "slave") in the late Roman Republic.
These wars and the political tension that
existed at the time had to have been at least
a little bit on the Apostle's mind. Because
Christianity was attracting many members of
the underclass, he did not want this new faith
to be associated undermining the foundations
of the state.
My point here is an important one and more so
as America continues to sink into a morass of
corruption. We Christians have a duty, first
to God and he gives us his own commandments
here on how we are to interact with the State
and its leaders. Nowhere do I see that we are
to impose our religion on others or use
violence to protect what we perceive
to be our rights.
I would go you one further, we should do what
we can to make our nations safe, free,
peaceful and a place where we can live in
peace and honor our God without harassment
- but do it peacefully.
I don't subscribe to the abandonment theology
some preach where we should not be involved in
the day to day affairs of our nation. No, we
should be involved but in a positive, peaceful
and loving way. Not with violent talk or
actions and certainly not with any
kind of law breaking.
Yes, I think we are enjoined to a certain
degree of loyalty to our respective countries.
Americans to our nation, Iranians to their
nation, Chinese to theirs, etc.
I often however think I get into
trouble because I don't 'hate' other nations
that our nation hates with the proper vigor.
This too is one reason I had so many troubles
in the past. The question was being asked by
those in power why I did not 'foam at the
mouth' on cue against the Russians during the
heyday of the Ukrainian crisis. I don't see
hating Russians, Iranians or Chinese as being
my duty as a Christian or as an
So, yes, I am an American and proud to say I
am a patriotic one. But the kind of
patriotism, to use the parable from above,
that flushes that Heroin down the toilet
rather than goes out and buys another ounce
for Mama to space out on tonight.

they can get any strange and interesting

thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah:
there they stood:
the battle in Gibeah against the children
of iniquity did not overtake them.
It is in my desire that I should chastise
them; and the people shall be gathered
when they shall bind themselves in their
Verse 9 begins with God's word
against Israel and it's sin at Gibeah. Which
of course is a reference to at least the afore
mentioned incident with the concubine, but
also is probably a reference to the place
where Saul dwelt when Israel demanded of the
Lord a King (1 Sam 10:26). Israel stood and
still persisted in its sins from yesteryear.
This is the real crime, that they really did
not repent. This is one of the main problems
when God is most forbearing to sinners. People
look upon it as weakness or God's indifference
to evil. As we go back to Judges chapter 20 we
see how Benjamin compounded the sin.
the tribes of Israel sent men through
all the tribe of Benjamin, saying,
What wickedness is this that is done
among you? Now therefore deliver us
the men, the children of Belial, which
are in Gibeah, that we may put them to
death, and put away evil from Israel.
But the children of Benjamin would
not hearken to the voice of their
brethren the children of Israel:
But the children of Benjamin gathered
themselves together out of the cities
unto Gibeah, to go out to battle
against the children of Israel.
The battle did not go well with the
Israelites and why they eventually had a kind
of victory, they could not catch them. The
whole incident is covered in Judges Chapter 20
Hosea brings this sin to light showing that
they really had not paid for it. The passage
seems to indicate that while that sin (the
consequences for it) did not overtake them
then, it will now in a far worse fashion.
Benjamin did finally survive the battle, but
now all of Israel was infected with sin and
evil. This time, the battle would
overtake them, for the Lord remembered their
iniquity. God then lays out his desire. He
remembers their sins and now he was going to
chastise them. God was going to raise up
armies against them. The last part of Verse
ten is a bit obscure and commentators do not
agree exactly how the phrase should be
rendered. The two furroughs clearly is a
farming analogy. Some think the image is one
of two oxen that pull a plough side by side.
Others see an analogy of the sins that Israel
committed and were bound in their sin like
Oxen. Barnes take goes like this. I post it
because it gives us both the linguistic and
spiritual sense of the passage.
shall bind themselves in their two
furrows - They “bind themselves” and
Satan “binds them” to their sin. In
harmony and unity in nothing else, they
will bind themselves, and plow like two
oxen together, adding furrow to furrow,
joining on line to line of sin. They who
had thrown off the light and easy yoke
of God, who were ever like a restive,
untamed, heifer, starting aside from the
yoke, would “bind” and band themselves
steadily in their own ways of sin,
cultivating sin, and in that sin should
destruction overtake them. People who
are unsteady and uneven in everything
besides, will be steadfast in preening
sin; they who will submit to no
constraint, human or divine, will, in
their slavery to their passions, submit
to anything. No slavery is so heavy as
that which is selfimposed.
This translation has followed an
old Jewish tradition, expressed by the
vowels of the text, and old Jewish
authorities. With other vowels, it may
be rendered, literally, “in their
binding to their two transgressions,”
which gives the same sense, “because
they bound themselves to their two
transgressions,” or, passively, “when
they are bound, on account of their two
transgressions.” The “two
transgressions,” may designate the two
calves, “the sin of Israel,” or the
twofold guilt of fornication, spiritual,
and in the body; the breach of both
tables of God’s law; or as Jeremiah
says, “My people hath committed two
evils; they have forsaken Me, the
Fountain of living waters, and hewed
them out cisterns, broken cisterns,
which can hold no water” Jer_2:13.

translates the passage like this.

little more insight into what is meant.
Ephraim is as an heifer that is
taught, and loveth to tread out the
but I passed over upon her fair neck:
I will make Ephraim to ride;
Judah shall plow, and Jacob shall
break his clods.
The imagery here is farming again. Back
in those days, Corn was threshed by an ox
tied to a post when a great stone wheel
and the ox would go round and round. This
verse seems to show how God looked upon
Israel and when she was doing the work of
God. This appears to be a similitude of
the yoke of the Lord where all had their
part to play in creating a harvest. Is
this not what our Lord alluded to?
unto me, all ye that labour and are
heavy laden, and I will give you
Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek and lowly
and ye shall find rest unto your
souls. For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.
Rather than the previous
verses, this one seems to be an exhortation
that Israel give herself over to Godly
service, as verse 12 clearly makes plain.
to yourselves in righteousness, reap in
mercy; break up your fallow ground:
for it is time to seek the LORD, till he
come and rain righteousness upon you.
Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have
reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit
because thou didst trust in thy way, in
the multitude of thy mighty men.
The Lord here now describes the ground that he
wants them all to walk in, the ground of
righteousness. God here exhorts his people to
seek God. This is a key theme in the New
Testament, sowing and reaping (2Cor 9:6, Gal 6:7-9
This is what the Lord here is describing.
Farming for God, rather than for evil. The
crop they were growing caused them to eat not
mercy, but lies.
Here we also find the prophetic imagery of
rain. The idea is that if the people did
their part in the work of godly farming, God
would do his and provide rain in its season.
The last part of verse thirteen I think is so
telling of our world and particularly our
America and even Modern Israel today no longer
trusts the Lord, they now accept a pantheon of
gods and goddesses philosophy's. Our President
made it plain in simple English, America is
not a Christian nation. America has trusted in
'her way', not the way of the Lord. America's
way more and more is nothing more than the
ways of Mammon and any truly God fearing
Christian can see it. America as well no
longer trusts in the arm of the Lord, but in
her 'mighty men', which is a prophetic
similitude for her military. America, like
Israel in those days trusts in her pantheon of
gods, particularly the religion of
Freemasonry. She trusts in her stealth
fighters and carrier groups; nuclear weapons
and Special Operations teams. She does not
trust in the Lord.

The incident seems to imagine some kind of
inhuman cruelty that was probably well known
in Hosea's time but is no longer. The last
verse lays the blame on all of this evil that

Bethel. Bethel is where Jeroboam set up his
golden calf's, in direct opposition to the
religious worship of the Judah, the southern
kingdom. He wanted to ensure the loyalty of
the people remained with him and his northern
kingdom and thus set up a new religious
system. It was one founded in wickedness. The
kings of Israel had led the people of the
North astray and as such, would be as the
prophet says, 'be utterly cut off'

the entertainment industry. I know a person who
works for a major entertainment company (a
household name) that witnessed a 'Saturday
night' massacre of every senior Black manager.
It was so bad that one young White Blonde
manager made a serious mention of it out in the
open in a board meeting.
How did they get away with it? They too donated
big to Obama...
Will Black folks ever 'get it'?
No, they won't. A soothing speech from the 'O'
or Hillary and they will go right back to sleep.
And The Spirit Of Murder
Today I want to talk about a spirit that I
have noticed more and more in America and her
leaders. It's the spirit of murder, it's the
spirit of killing those one disagrees with.
It's the spirit of blowing a hole in those who
you don't even know because of what someone
told you they are like, like with so many of
these police shootings. It's the spirit of
bloodshed and murder, a powerful demonic
stronghold in the kingdom of satan.
I bring this up for many reasons today, but
mainly because this is what the Lord wanted me
to write on. A couple of days ago, we see the
man who runs the CIA talk about assassinating
Russians and Iranians.
really did and he did that after
endorsing Hillary Clinton. Rather sad isn't
it? But keep in mind this - Mike Morrell was
the CIA director at the time of the Benghazi
scandal, which has Hillary's and the
CIA's fingerprints all over it. If there are
arms flowing into Syria for rebels and for
terror groups like Boko Haram in Africa, thank
the policy of both, they knew the risk and
wanted not to just take it, but to assist many
of the rich Gulf sheikdoms clandestine policy
of Islamifying as much of Africa as possible.
The result? Terror groups terrorize with
US arms. None of this is a coincidence,
I think those of you who want a backstory to
the political infighting and ultimate result will
find his piece fair minded and informative.
The arms now flow to Islamist's on cue.
Those who signed off on this war and its
methodology were arguably conspirators in
an effort to provide material support to
terrorist organizations by supplying them
with military equipment, allegedly to be
used to topple the Gadhafi government.
That is a felony ... - David
I am giving you the real lowdown. Not the
fluff our lying leaders will try and
sell you. More here.
and especially here.
continues today. For those of you who
don't know, Boko Haram is the most deadly
terrorist organization in the world today. You
do your own search on that one but be careful,
searching on that one may leave some residual
blood stains on your computer monitor.
So now we have a former CIA director calling
for the assassination of Russian and Iranian
citizens. Two nations for which we have had
tension but are not at war. In fact, both will
be needed for a comprehensive solution to the
regions problems. Clearly a solution is not
what Morrell is looking for.
How would America feel about Putin's top
intelligence person calling for the
assassination of Americans?
I think we would be understandably outraged.
I would be. How can a world operate with
American leadership calling for the murder of
others in such a blatant and criminal fashion?
Is violence the only way these people inside
our security establishment solve their
problems? Is it any wonder the world is
flowing in blood, tears and and reeks of smoke
and cordite in far too many places?

and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the
and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own: for he is
and the father of it.
Lies and murder - I can think of fewer places on
this earth more befitting this description than
in key parts of America's covert apparatus. We
kill people who never meant us or the nation any
harm. Someone somewhere has a brainstorm and
thinks that they have it 'all figured out' and
says if we kill thus and so, our problems will
be solved. So we go and kill the person and the
problem gets worse. Then the same person has
another brainstorm and says, 'we did not go far
enough, we need to kill this one and this one
too'. We go and assassinate them and the problem
grows even more. Then security budgets get
increased, new contractors are hired to study
the problem, and new and exciting ways of
killing our brother get created in Government
laboratories and think tanks.
Then there is the revelation that the DNC
staffer may have been the victim of a
political assassination. Assange hinted (but did
not say) that this staffer may have been the
source of the leaks he had gotten
out of the DNC. Of course this is on the
heels of another DNC person's
suspicious death just before key testimony.
He is not the first in this election cycle.
Do I think the staffer leaked the data? No. A
low level guy like that... no way he would have
access to those mails of top DNC leaders. That I
think was a deliberate misdirection.
This is not about partisanship, this is about
the spirit of murder that has descended on
America. The murders of key officials from Ron
Brown, to William Colby, to Vincent Foster to a
whole bunch of other people with ties to our
political system is far too numerous to mention.
But as our elite operate on the level of the
Mafia so does the nation. Look at the number of
unarmed YBM being gunned down by cops. No threat
to the cops, just go out and commit murder.
America has the highest rate of gun crimes and gun
violence in the world. Now there are those
who say the problem is guns. But an unattended
gun never killed anyone. It is when someone who
is filled with hatred or a spirit or murder,
or wants to defend himself from the same, that
is when someone dies from a gunshot wound. The
problem I will state it plainly is not guns, its
Americans, whose love of war, violence and
violent entertainment that is the primary
problem today and far too many of them
on drugs - legal and illegal.
In short, the spirit of murder has descended on
this nation and it is little wonder that those
who fall out of favor with the power structure
or rather the 'murder structure' in the nation,
wind up having the pavement painted with their
Murder? I think we will see many more of them
before the election and most, but not all will
track right back to the Clinton's. I need to say
this too - even if they are not directly behind
them or even aware of the 'hit' before it
occurs, their supporters,
are often the kinds of people who will stop and
nothing to get them elected again, will do their
'wet work' for them. But let's not
just pick on Hillary here.
Brothers, this is how you know who is satanic
and who is not. They don't have to be wearing
pentagrams and sacrificing virgins on altars to
be in satan's service. Jesus lays out to us exactly
how you can tell the devils children in plain
simple language. They are infected with the
spirit of murder and lies. They deceive and
kill. This is the devils work and now you may
begin to see what spirit is really running this
once great nation.
This is how we know this nation is heading into
God's judgment, just as it was foretold by the
ancient prophets. We have fallen under the spell
of the evil one and now seek to do his will.
Men in this nation, I don't think they will ever
repent. This was the observation of the spirit
when given the vision of the last days.

This passage keeps coming to mind as well. It's
from Habakkuk and I have always found it most
telling of the spirit behind today's oil and
middle east wars. Mind you, I am not necessarily
saying this is a direct fulfillment, but take a
good look at what you read and what has happened
in the middle east since the Gulf War and the
Arab Spring uprisings.

as the east wind, and they shall

shall scoff at the kings,
princes shall be a scorn unto them:
deride every strong hold;
shall heap dust, and take it.
This is a people who are arrogant and self
righteous - no one can judge them. They have a
very powerful military and even airpower. they
are an exceptionally violent people and shall
scoff at kings (rulers). Take a look at all the
nations who were overthrown or are trying to be
overthrown by our government, Assad being just
the latest, Qadaffi was the last successful one.
They key here is not so much to fit this
prophecy exactly, but to show you a SPIRIT
behind it. It's an arrogant, violent spirit that
plays 'god' by removing kings and princes.
But truth be told, I think the spirit of murder
really began it's work in earnest the day they
killed Kennedy. When they killed a sitting
President, the covert American murder apparatus
knew they had a power and anyone that they did
not agree with, they murdered. I always think on
how every single person of note murdered (many
were called suicides) back in the 60's and early
70's was anti-War. Remember, Vietnam was raging
and the nation was in serious trouble with
student riots and more. Then those who did spoke
out against it were picked off one by one.
Malcolm, MLK, RFK, Then they went after the
cultural symbols who were anti-war the rock
stars. Guys like Hendrix, Lennon, Joplin and a
host of others. This is not to mention the Black
leaders who were picked off one by one. Each and
every one were anti-war and sought to bring in a
sense of Justice to the nation. Am I making this
up or guessing? I think
The murder apparatus had other plans and put
them in motion. They did murder and then lied to
the people about it - the devils work.
You see, these men who hide behind secret
classifications and laws that protect their work
don't know that God is watching. He has not and
will not forget what they have done. It reminds
me of a passage in Hosea. When rebuking Israel
for her sins, he notes that God is marking what
When I would have

and the wickedness of Samaria: for they
and the thief cometh in, and the troop

And they consider not in their hearts
that I remember all

about; they are before my face.
They make the king glad with their
wickedness, and the princes with their
They are all adulterers, as an oven
heated by the baker,
who ceaseth from raising after he hath
kneaded the dough, until it be leavened.
You know, I am amazed at the lack of
understanding people have. They seem to think
God is some guy up there whose only job it is is
to forgive us. Granted, that is something he
does, but only when there is genuine repentance
- a clear and discernible change of heart and
No dear readers, it is not God's 'job' to
forgive us. He does offer it, freely to anyone
who will come to him humbly acknowledging their
sins and evils. But those who don't repent
and come to God on bended knee's, - he has all
of your sins written down in a book and be
assured that there is not one you have committed
that you personally will not pay FULL PRICE for.
America is no different. God see's our
wickedness and especially the wickedness of our
government, who has spread so much hatred and
violence covertly in our world. People think God
is some pansy who won't act. He will act - when
he is finished waiting for our repentance, he
will act with great speed and will not relent
until those diseased with the plague of
unrepentant sin are dealt with and removed.
Brothers, I ask all of you to really discern the
spirit of murder and lies. It's out there but
the devil is exceptionally good at misdirection
and spin. He knows how to get you to accept the
spirit so that it can grow.
Yes, there is a spirit of murder on America. But
because of our superpower status we stand aloof
with out arrogance and say, 'who can judge us?.
It is not just Americans who are deeply effected
by that spirit.
Let those of us who know our God understand and

back in June)

As promised (to insiders), I am going to
spend today just talking about Marriage and
leave the other troubles in our world behind
for a while. This is meant to be real and a
bit humorous. It is my hope that I don't
offend anyone here. If I am a little rough
talking in a few places, it's to make a point,
not sound politically correct. I much prefer
the roughness of honesty to the softness of
comfortable falsehoods. Sometimes people need
a kind of verbal slap in the face to see the
facts for what they really are in our PC
I just want to talk about Marriage today, why
it is the way it is and perhaps look at how
Christian Churches and assemblies can reclaim
it and make it wholesome again.
Marriage was God's idea. He created both
woman and the institution of Marriage for the
man, so that he would not be alone. In a
perfect world, marriage is by far the best
thing for both men and women. Each were made
for each other. But I hate to break it to
... this is not a perfect world.
Things since the creation for the most part,
have gone downhill and this is where we will
begin our talk on marriage.
Rather than spend a great deal of time just
reciting Bible verses, though there will be
some, there are many things today that
Christians, especially young ones need to know
about before they hook up before God's altar.
First off, don't get into it lightly. Before
God and man, you are making a pledge and
covenant and doing so falsely is one of the
most serious affronts to God there is. When
you enter into a covenant, God is watching.
Yet, today, for both the saved and unsaved,
the whole institution of Marriage has lost its
sense of permanency. It has become 'I will
love you forever until...' kind of
commitment and divorce statistics prove it.
They are not at all pretty and they are the
kinds of thing that cause people like me to
pause and consider carefully before entering
into a marriage covenant (contract) with
Why is this? There are many reasons.
First and foremost, the morality of the
western world has changed and changed
significantly. This is a throw away society
and there is little mistaking it for little
more than that. People these days are not as
constant as they once were and without a
doubt, the morality of the nation has changed
and not for the better. This has deeply
effected the institution of marriage. Adultery
is so common that it's hard to try and demand
it of ones spouse. The social and cultural
cues out there all encourage a sexual
'freedom' that is wholly un-biblical. In
vogue, yes, but un-biblical.
This is where genuine Christians who really
want to know and please the Lord must make a
clear and unmistakable break with the morality
and cultural cues of the world, especially
with regards to Marriage. But before we get to
our duties as Christians, lets take a look at
a few trends in modern Marriage particularly
the fruit of marriage, that being fertility.
One thing I have found most valuable is to
look at trends. Just get as much data as you
can don't let anyone else interpret them for
you. Rather, just look at them clearly and
then do your best to extrapolate what that
data means. Rather than spend half the morning
finding charts that are not copyrighted to
post here, I will pass on some links for you
to peruse at your leisure.
World In Data
Now I hate to quote Malthus
because of his views on population control,
but his observation here is one that cannot
relationship between income and
fertility has been termed a
demographic-economic "paradox" by the
notion that greater means would enable
the production of more offspring as
suggested by the influential Thomas
Malthus. Roughly speaking, nations
or subpopulations with higher GDP per
capita are observed to have fewer
children, even though a richer
population can support more children.
Malthus held that in order to prevent
widespread suffering, from famine for
example, what he called "moral
restraint" (which included abstinence)
was required. The
demographic-economic paradox suggests
that reproductive restraint arises
naturally as a consequence of economic
The facts are simple, in the
developed world (Europe and North America) where
incomes are higher, fertility tends to be lower,
where incomes are lower, fertility rates tends
to be higher. Again, I am no fan of
Malthus but he makes a point here that cannot be
ignored and this I think is something that tends
not just towards Fertility but also
perhaps with a bit less direct correlation with
regards to Marriage as well. The more money
people make and the more affluent and 'modern' a
society becomes, the marriage rates tend to
decline in an inverse fashion, just like with
Here in the west men and women more and more are
shunning marriage. With men particularly,
this appears to be more and more the case. I
have gone to many sites and blogs over the years
with men ranting about marriage and the kinds of
women they either married or get entangled with.
Understand ladies, I am not
denigrating any of you godly women out there.
Rather, I am just showing you why so many men
are simply not interested in that long term
relationship that many women crave. There are
many reasons. I am going to give you some of
them. Please note that these reasons are mostly
from a secular perspective, but they are still
relevant to our our secularized 'Christian'
Marriage is often seen as confining and I just
don't mean sexually. You are going to lose a lot
of personal 'space' and must deal with another
persons idiosyncrasies until one of you dies.
While it's true that sex is a big issue in
marriage, its also true that increasingly those
who just 'live together' have more sex
than a married couples. The old phrase 'PW'
seems to be more of a reality than a mere urban
joke. Too often, I have seen guys whose wife
won't sleep with them go out and find a lover.
Then the wife has grounds for divorce, and then
she takes the guy to court and he is the one who
loses out, for in most cases, the woman will
keep the kids and have her income supplemented
with child support payments. Second, can you
really be sure that the kids are yours? Don't
laugh and for those of you who think I have gone
off the deep end, click on over here and read
the comments by 'CJ'. More here.
Guys? Those ain't your kids? Tough, in many
places you still have to pay. Which
brings me to the next point.
The legal profession and politicians have ruined
the institution of Marriage and turned it into a
money making racket. The Lawyers, Judges, even
prisons (don't pay child support and see what
happens to you!) are well compensated in the
divorce racket... and that is just what it has
become, in my view. The system has created
significant and enticing economic incentives for
divorce; alimony, legal fees and child support
being the immediate ones, but the others less
apparent that helps keep the system lucrative
for the divorce business. And you can be sure
that the legal system rakes in a lot
of money from divorce. You may not know
this but there has even been a lawsuit
that alleges this very thing. Me? I don't
need a lawsuit or court case to see how messed
up the system is in many places. I have seen it
first hand in the lives of men I once knew. But
this is just one aspect of what is turning out
to be in many ways a major trend in men just
shunning the institution totally. The thinking?
The best way to not have to pay divorce 'ransom'
is to not get held hostage in the first place.
Another problem? The women's liberation movement
in the eyes of many men have changed women into
something unrecognizable, and certainly
un-marryable. One writer captured the idea
here and this is written by a woman not a
Try and understand this ladies, I know some of
you may not like what I have written - but this
is how many and an increasingly large number of
men really feel. Yes, it's true their feelings
may not be 100% justifiable, but to ignore these
things is to ignore the problem and this is
a major problem, particularly for younger
But from a woman's perspective, I can say that
in all honestly the women in many ways have more
to complain about. I am tired of talking to and
listening to these whiny, irresponsible men
whose cowardliness is only outmatched by their
laziness. Too many have no sense of personal
responsibility. I know I have seen this so many
times, that I do think its more and more the
rule rather than the exception. Now me? I recoil
at cowards, kiss-behinds and wimps. I don't even
like being around them. I can only imagine how a
woman who is looking for a real man must feel
when she has to deal with this generation of
woosified men we have in the nation today when
looking for a life-partner.
I don't want to just paint a grim picture of
marriage. There are still many of them that work
and work well and many of those who do get
remarry. Those who have happy marriages
would not trade it for the world. So I ask all
of you to take the negative things I say in that
light. I am not down on marriage, I am down on
what western, particularly American culture has
done to marriage.
Me? I never married. I came very close twice but
glad I never did. I am not blaming the women. At
the time, frankly, I lacked the maturity and
'steadiness' for a long term commitment. But if
there was anything that soured me on marriage is
was my time in the Gulf War. The things that
went on while I was deployed and the things that
men discovered when they came back home. I can
remember returning back to Germany from my
deployment and somewhere deep in my subconscious
I told myself 'I will never marry'. I
think also the fact that our home when I was
growing up was broken and the way my mother had
to struggle to keep a roof over our heads and
food in the Ice Chest (for a long time we did
not have a refrigerator when my dad left). I was
old enough to kind of see the 'light' go out of
my mothers eyes and a kind of sadness that
stayed with her for a long time, though she
tried very hard to hide it from us all. These
things soured me personally on the institution
as each of these events effected me rather
When I see how the legal system has messed
marriage up, frankly I have no desire to be held
hostage and have to pay 'ransom' to lawyers,
judges and other assorted
officers of the court if my wife turns out to be
the local semen repository and be forced to pay
for another man's 'litter'. Nor do I think
a woman should have to put up with a man who has
fathered small sections of the city and wonder
why a couple of her kids friends look like her
husband and have to deal with all the mess that
goes with that. In the eyes of US courts these
things may be 'OK" and nonpunishable. I assure
you in God's eyes, they are cause for serious
Judgement. This is why I will not
mince words here our use flowery language
to describe what happens (abominations)
in far too many marriages and even
relationships. Adultery if un-repented of, is a
sin that leads to spiritual death. Moreover, I
am not concerned with what Pope's, Priests or
Pastors say to put a smiley face on this most
serious sin in God's eyes.
But what is a young person to do who has his or
her youthful sexual needs and yet these are the
moral cues and people to choose from that are
For me now? Well, I am 57. I am in many ways
past my prime and am looking to slide into old
age as quietly as I can. While I would loved to
have had kids, I don't want them now. I am too
old. I would be in my 70's when my kids hit
their teens. What are they going to get me for
my birthday.. .a new set of dentures? (!)
So marriage for me is out of the question as
long as I reside in America. I have about as as
much faith in our courts to protect my marital
rights as I do in a Klansman to protect my Civil
rights. That may be a bit overly cynical for
many of you, but I have seen a few things that
have turned my stomach.
Should the Lord ever direct me out of the nation
and I live in a nation with laws that are more
conducive to a healthy marriage, I may
consider it. I am totally uninterested in
anything but a Godly and happy marriage. Being
single frankly at my age, is not so bad at
First of all, unlike trends in this evil age
which is doing all it can to redefine marriage
in the image of the world, the Church needs to
stand up and stop trying to change what the
world thinks of Marriage and begin to redefine
it according to Biblical precedents FOR THE
CHURCH. This I don't think is nearly as hard to
do as many would think. Churches could easily
adopt this by enforcing some discipline on its
members with regards to Marriage. How do you do
that? I mean realistically? Again, I don't think
it would be that difficult. Pastors and elders
would just need what so many lack today. What is
One thing I would work towards in a medium to
small denomination is establishing a legal
framework for a church recognized marriage. What
I mean is this. The Church should draw up a
legally binding covenant between prospective
marriage partners on their responsibilities and
their expectations. Also what should be done in
the case of divorce. For example, if a man could
prove that kids were not his and were the
product of adultery, he should not be obligated
to pay child support to that child, indeed in
the case of adultery, the man should have the
option to keep the kinds in place of the woman
and have his income supplemented.
In short, prospective marriage partners could
then sign a kind of Church approved prenuptial
agreement that would be binding legally
on both parties. It should be fair, it should
remove many of the negative trends that are in
modern secular marriage and finally needs to be
be administered and arbitrated by a Church
council should there be a dispute. The Church
would be wise to keep a few lawyers either on
its board or as consultants/contractors to
ensure that things are done properly and that
there are no ways for those who sign such
agreement to wriggle out of it once its made and
they are out frolicking with their neighbors
spouse and then don't want to pay the piper when
the fun is done.
This is a simple solution and one frankly, I am
surprised more Churches have not attempted to
adopt. Separate Godly marriage from the
cacophony of confusion and profit that has
consumed secular marriage. This
could be done, though there will probably
considerable backlash from the 'hate Christians'
crowd in society. But the simple fact is,
prenups are very common today and a Church who
knows the law and what it wants to see in its
marriages should not have a major problem doing
The key is that the Church needs to ensure and
enforce Church teachings on Marriage in more
than just sermons.
is honourable in all, and the bed
Today, with all the adultery and escort services
(whoremomgering) out there, marriage is anything
but honorable and that includes a whole slew of
'christian' marriages as well. The apostolic
command is not a suggestion and he gives firm
warning to those who think it is. Those who
enter into a marriage agreement need to
understand just what they are doing in the eyes
of God because God is going to hold you to
account if you break your covenant with your
but whoremongers and adulterers God
There are many admonitions about marriage in the
NT and as we saw when I went through Hosea, God
is a stickler for marital fidelity. if you come
together, your best bet is to stay together. If
there is adultery or fornication, that is your
only real 'out' of a marriage agreement. It's
not 'mental cruelty' or even your
husband's 3 year prison stretch. It's not, 'he
looks at too many porn sites' or 'she
got too fat for me'. These are not causes
for a divorce in God's eyes.
Let me say this as well. Paul's admonition about
Marriage, while not being a directive from the
Lord is still very good advice. He said clearly
that it's better not to marry. But lets take a
look at the whole passage and in it we will see
how in a Biblical marriage is to operate. Many
of the problems we see today would be eliminated
if people did right and aas God said.
concerning the things whereof ye wrote
unto me: It is good for a man not to touch
a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid
fornication, let every man have his own
wife, and let every woman have her own
husband. Let the husband render unto the
wife due benevolence: and likewise also
the wife unto the husband. The wife hath
not power of her own body, but the
husband: and likewise also the husband
hath not power of his own body, but the
wife. Defraud ye not one the other,
except it be with consent for a time, that
ye may give yourselves to fasting and
prayer; and come together again, that
Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
But I speak this by permission, and not of
commandment. For I would that all men were
even as I myself. But every man hath his
proper gift of God, one after this manner,
and another after that. I say
therefore to the unmarried and widows,
It is good for them if they abide even
as I. But if they cannot contain, let
them marry: for it is better to marry
than to burn. And unto the married
I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let
not the wife depart from her husband: But
and if she depart, let her remain
unmarried, or be reconciled to her
husband: and let not the husband put away
his wife. But to the rest speak I, not the
Lord: If any brother hath a wife that
believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell
with him, let him not put her away. And
the woman which hath an husband that
believeth not, and if he be pleased to
dwell with her, let her not leave him. For
the unbelieving husband is sanctified by
the wife, and the unbelieving wife is
sanctified by the husband: else were your
children unclean; but now are they holy.
But if the unbelieving depart, let him
depart. A brother or a sister is not under
bondage in such cases: but God hath called
us to peace. For what knowest thou, O
wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband?
or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou
shalt save thy wife? But as God hath
distributed to every man, as the Lord hath
called every one, so let him walk. And so
ordain I in all churches.
Does this passage really need a lot of
commentary? I don't think so. Paul is laying out
God's commandments sprinkled in with a bit of
his own strongly held opinion. I think it wise
for Christian men and women to get the issue in
their minds in a time of concerted prayer as to
what God wants for you. But know this. Marriage
is no bed of roses. It's work. To make a
successful marriage it takes real work, give and
take and sacrifice. Men need to
stop looking at Marriage as a just a way to have
sex regularly and women need to stop looking at
marriage (and divorce) as a cash register.
I know that these may be ugly stereotypes, but
frankly many stereotypes have their basis in
uncomfortable truths. The simple fact is men and
women need to get real about what they
expect from a marriage and what they are really
willing to put into it to make it work, over
the long haul. Will you be there for
that man when he is fat, fifty and bald. Men?
Mill you stay with her when she may not be that
'looker' you walked down the aisle with and may
be having significant health challenges? In
short, are you willing to be that life
partner or just a sex partner? Are you
looking for some kind of free ride that you
think Marriage will provide for you. As a
Christian, you have deep obligation to your
spouse and a worldly divorce is not likely to
free you from those deep spiritual
obligations, though you may think they
I say unto you, That whosoever shall put
away his wife,
saving for the cause of fornication,
causeth her to commit adultery:
and whosoever shall marry her that is
divorced committeth adultery.
Brothers, I hope all of you, and I am sure you
all do, understand the responsibilities of
marriage. Don't enter into it lightly because
God is going to hold you severely responsible
with regards to YOUR obligations in marriage.
Don't look for a way out of those obligations
and if you are not willing to meet them, I
exhort you to shun marriage until you are a
Please don't be angry with me if the the tone of
this may not be quite what you were expecting. I
think when God gets finished judging a lot of
these marriages and the evil people are doing,
you will think I was too easy on some of the
behavior I marked with colorful metaphors
herein. God is not playing games when he warned
us that he will judge adulterers and

Washington, D.C. (International Christian
Concern) - International
Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that Boko
Haram has gained new leadership in Abu Musab
al-Barnawi as its new "governor" for West
Africa. This information was published in the
Islamic State's Al-Naba magazine, published on
Tuesday, August 2. Additionally, in the
published article, Abu Musab al-Barnawi spoke
of, "booby-trapping and blowing up every
church that we are able to reach, and killing
all of those who we find from the citizens of
It has been over two years since Boko Haram
entered the main stage of terror in Nigeria.
In April 2014, the militant group kidnapped
276, mostly Christian, teenage girls from a
boarding school in Chibok. 219 of these girls
are still missing.
Boko Haram has continued to wage a war of
terror against the people of Nigeria,
specifically in the northeastern region. The
group has killed thousands of people, deployed
children as suicide bombers, and destroyed the
future for countless young women and girls.
Last year, the militant group pledged its
allegiance to the Islamic State, around the
same time that the Nigerian military began its
offensive against the group.
Now, they have threatened to specifically
target Christians and churches in the African
nation after feeling threatened by the
"Christianizing" of Nigerian society.
"Targeting Christian churches for bombing is
no news to us. That's exactly what they (Boko
Haram) have been doing over the years," Rev.
Musa Asake, National Secretary of the
Christian Association of Nigeria, told ICC.
"My advice to Christians is that they buckle
up, fasten their seatbelts and protect their
churches since the government securities have
been very weak in helping. Christians are
being attacked by Islamic radicals in Nigeria
almost on [a] daily basis."
Troy Augustine, ICC's Regional Manager, said,
"We are deeply concerned for the protection of
our Christian brothers and sisters in Nigeria.
Christians are already regularly suffering at
the hands of terrorists, and now Boko Haram
has promised to vamp up their dedication to
destroying Christianity in the nation. The
government must step up its efforts to protect
Christian citizens in particular from the
hateful advances of Boko Haram as they
proclaim and even publish their rising efforts

Far from it. Our duty is to bear witness to

police killings have declined steadily

The Marshall project does a good job of fact
checking some of the hot air blown by GOP
candidates on crime.
It's hard to come to terms with such
scaremongering. But this is how the GOP scares
up votes in many parts of America who are scared
that 'they' will come into their neighborhoods
and commit crime.
I see the problem as being multifaceted with
race playing an important, but not all
encompassing role in the problems in law
enforcement. I think there are several factors
that contribute to what we have today, which
while not a 'crisis' in a statistical sense, has
highlighted deep and systemic problems in
policing that have been around for decades and
is rapidly becoming a crisis in the social and
political sense. This is nothing new. How
many of you remember that old
song by Martin Gaye, called 'Inner City Blues'.
There are a couple, of lines from that land mark
song that talks about increasing
crime and trigger happy policing.
"Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna
Holler)", often shortened to "Inner City
Blues", is a song by Marvin Gaye, released as
the third and final single from and the
climactic song of his 1971 landmark album,
What's Going On. Written by Gaye and James Nyx
Jr., the song depicts the ghettos and bleak
economic situations of inner-city America, and
the emotional effects these have on
inhabitants. - Wikipedia
These problems have been here a long time.
Frankly what I see is really nothing really
new from the days when that song was sung.
But there have been some changes in these
respects. First off, technology has allowed
these incidents to be spread about to the
world instantaneously. Before, the media
'controllers' would decide when something
would be aired and if America knew about it
or not. now, these these can no longer be
hidden. Within an hour after one of these
incidents, a YouTube Video will go up to let
the world know what happened. That is one
very significant change that has diluted the
ability of the power structure in the nation
to control the narrative. Another change is
that while America may be facing a policing
crisis of sorts, the real crisis is one of
economics. It's the lack of decent wage jobs
in many Black communities that has so many
Young Black Men (YBM) turning to other forms
of less savory forms of revenue earning.
This is not just seen in Black America, the
jobs situation in White America as well is
not as good as our leaders and their
statistics tell us, and the rise of Donald
Trump and his economic policies show is that
millions of Americans are awakening to this
In short, my view is that it is the
economics of globalization, free trade, and
job creation and statistical tricks to
maintain a lie of a booming jobs economy
that are one of the foundation stones of
many of our ills. Granted, in many places in
the nation, things are not bad. Some
area's are seeing a boom. But in many
communities, these economic booms tend
to miss them and certainly miss unskilled
YBM. Youth unemployment is indeed a problem.
Someone in the LA area may say that they
don't see a problem, not really. To some
degree they are correct. But when you go to
a place like Detroit, it's a whole 'nother
But the lack of jobs, or at least good
paying ones is not just hitting this group,
Whites as well are often burdened with the
lack of suitable employment. My point is
this a kid who has a chance to make 15 bucks
an hour doing honest work is far more likely
to do right and stay on the right track. A
kid who can't get a job with no prospects in
sight, is going to go into survival mode and
that often means for some people, crossing
the line into crime.
I see the crime issue as one that
politicians on both sides of the aisle wish
to cynically use to get political
power, exploit and even exacerbate
with the political power they get in order
to keep the nation divided and scared enough
to keep voting them into office. Some
Elements in the GOP have no interest in
solving America's crime problem. The bigger
the problem, the more than can scare the
suburban housewife to vote for them next
time around and the more money can go to
shady state and local 'security contracts'
that target those 'scary dark people' who
live on the other side of the tracks.
Why are we basically in the same place we
were when Marvin Gaye wrote his song?
Because no one wants to fix these problems.
They require work and expending political
capital. They require a common sense
approach to these problems rather than a
sound bite designed to polarize the nation,
and this is one of my biggest concerns with
Mr. Trump. He is listening to all the wrong
people and as a result will implement all
the wrong solutions and here is where the

with the same rap sheet can, by law, get
widely disparate sentences.
I will give it that name because the basic
idea for it comes from Hitlers Germany. What
am I talking about? Nazi German policy
'proved' that all Jews were criminally
inclined and the Police there used this
'proof' to target the Jews, imprison them
(in concentration camps) and later
exterminate them. Why? Because of this
'proof' and their twisted racial theories.
propaganda depicted all Jews as criminals
that needed to be 'weeded out of society'
was all too real. My point is not to say we
are at that point yet, we are not.
No, rather my point is that powerful people
have been able to sell the same kinds of
racial statistical lies that Hitler used
against the Jews now against Blacks. Now
they are doing it here in America. But here
is where the careful use of propaganda comes
They never say this is about race, in fact
very few places on line even discuss the
racial aspect of this new algorithmic based
sentencing, they deliberately hide the fact
that race is even an issue in their
algorithms. You do that when race is indeed
a if not the key issue
- but you don't want to excite the
target populations. Today, propaganda cannot
be as blatant and as in your face as it was
back in Nazi Germany and be effective.
Today, propagandists hide critical data
(a technique known as 'sanitization') -
clean out critical truths, lie about
what the are doing and plan to do, and do as
much as one can to control the 'narrative'
while they can - before people find
out what they are doing to them.
No, today propaganda and societal changes
are implemented with far greater skill and
much more gradually than in Hitlers day.
Calling blacks more criminally inclined
because jobs are scarce or non-existent for
many of them is akin to calling Jews
criminals in Nazi Germany because many
professions were not open to them. The
society, by administrative and political
means creates all the conditions necessary
to increase criminal behavior in certain
groups of people and then sets up special
laws (or software) to make sure that the
target population is removed from the
general population. Call it high-tech
Now, let me make this plain. I am fully
cognizant of the deeper problems of
criminal recidivism. It's a very real
problem and simply put, many police are
highly frustrated when they arrest a person
and a couple of years later, they have to
arrest the same guy after he did his 6
months in county jail. This is indeed a
major issue, so while I don't like the way
these trend in machine based sentencing is
heading, I know that it is also unwise to
not deal with the problem of repeat
offenders, especially of violent crimes.
Trump and Crime? I don't know on one level
he scares me, but Trump also has a very long
pattern of supporting a number of liberal
causes, so it is unclear to me just how he
plans to attack America's crime problem.
He may turn out to be like Obama and just
talk us half to death. 30 July
We left off last time with verse 5 of
Chapter 10. I did not quite get to verse six,
though that was the plan (!).
shall also be carried to Assyria, a
present to King Jareb.
Ephraim shall receive shame,
and Israel shall be ashamed of his own
Samaria is cut off; her king is
as a bough on the face of the water.
(Hos 10:6-7 - LITV)
Hosea, by divine inspiration
tells the Northern Kingdom a powerful word
here. That their glory (vs 5) will be carried
off to Assyria. The key here is that not only
Israel was going to Assyria, but so were the
idols in which she trusted. The implications
here are that the calf idols and other idols
of wood and stone that Israel had worshiped
would be plucked up, and taken to Assyria as a
gift to the King. There is no record of a King
Jareb in any text, Hebrew or otherwise. But as
mentioned before in this series on Hosea, the
name has a meaning as well. I will repeat it
From H7378; he will contend; Jareb, a
symbolical name for Assyria: - Jareb.
It only occurs in two places, here and in
Hosea 5:13. The king was probably one that is
referred to as Pul, but (for you history
buffs) even that is not a certainty
historically speaking. I will pass on what
Eaton's Dictionary says about him and leave
you with this historical question to ferret
out for yourselves.
(1.) An Assyrian king. It has been
a question whether he was identical with
Tiglath-pileser III. (q.v.), or was his
predecessor. The weight of evidence is
certainly in favour of their identity.
Pul was the throne-name he bore in
Babylonia as king of Babylon, and
Tiglath-pileser the throne-name he bore
as king of Assyria. He was the founder
of what is called the second Assyrian
empire. He consolidated and organized
his conquests on a large scale. He
subdued Northern Syria and Hamath, and
the kings of Syria rendered him homage
and paid him tribute. His ambition was
to found in Western Asia a kingdom which
should embrace the whole civilized
world, having Nineveh as its centre.
Menahem, king of Israel, gave him the
enormous tribute of a thousand talents
of silver, “that his hand might be with
him” (2Ki_15:19; 1Ch_5:26). The fact
that this tribute could be paid showed
the wealthy condition of the little
kingdom of Israel even in this age of
disorder and misgovernment. Having
reduced Syria, he turned his arms
against Babylon, which he subdued. The
Babylonian king was slain, and Babylon
and other Chaldean cities were taken,
and Pul assumed the title of “King of
Sumer [i.e., Shinar] and Accad.” He was
succeeded by Shalmanezer IV.
The key here is in the second part of
verse six, that all that idol worshiping and all
night sex parties under the moon lit idols of
the Northern Kingdom, will bring this horrible
shame on the people. Israel was listening to bad
advice, and that advice will be their shame.
When you take 'consultative advice' from satan
and his ministers (in the form of idols, and
occultists) shame is the result. The
same theme can be found in prophetic and
eschatological works. What happens at the two
resurrections as Daniel lays out?
many of them that sleep in the dust of the
earth shall awake,
some to everlasting life, and some to
shame and everlasting contempt.
And they that be wise shall shine as
the brightness of the firmament;
and they that turn many to
righteousness as the stars for ever and
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the
words, and seal the book, even to the time
of the end:
many shall run to and fro, and
knowledge shall be increased.
In the very last days, let us remember
that there will be global idolatry and those who
do not partake of it, will not be able to buy or
sell and will be hunted down to be killed. I
will digress here for just a moment because I
think it meet.
As our world moves towards that final 42 month
system, looking at these old prophecies may to
some be a bit of an anachronism? Why talk about
Hosea, when all the stuff is happening in our
world, brother Mark? I understand how many of
you feel about that and to tell the truth, that
was pretty much how I felt when I started the
work on all of these Old time prophets. I have
already gone through most of them. But this much
we can see. The theme's for then as they are for
today and the very last hour, they are all
pretty much the same. Idolatry? People say no
one worships idols any more. But in our times,
we do. They just take different forms the most
visible of which is the gods of materialism. But
there are other gods out there as well. The fact
is God, wants us to trust him and no one
but him, not in our idols. Idols will always
lead you astray and give you that bad counsel.
In the last days, there will be the counsel of
the devil that gives - submit, worship,
take the mark and eat. And the counsel of the
Lord that says if you do, your place in eternal
torment is assured, you have God's eternal word
on it. Two differing words of counsel, two
for Samaria, her king is cut off as the
foam upon the water.
The high places also of Aven, the sin
of Israel, shall be destroyed:
the thorn and the thistle shall come
up on their altars;
and they shall say to the mountains,
Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on
This word is directed first
towards Samaria, the main city of the
North. Her king was going to be cut off.
The word for cut off is one that has a deep
'finality' to it.
A primitive root; to be dumb or
silent; hence to fail or perish;
transitively to destroy: - cease, be cut
down (off), destroy, be brought to
silence, be undone, X utterly.
The metaphor that Hosea uses
'foam upon the water' eludes me. Barnes thinks
this may be like Straw, others see it like
bubbles that pop one after another in rapid
succession. Here is What Clarke says.
lightly as a puff of wind blows off the
foam that is formed below by a fall of
water, so shall the kings of Israel be
cut off. We have already seen that not
less than four of them died by
assassination in a very short time. [Clarke's Notes from
Hosea 7:7 follow] There was a
pitiful slaughter among the idolatrous
kings of Israel; four of them had fallen
in the time of this prophet. Zechariah
was slain by Shallum; Shallum, by
Menahem; Pekahiah, by Pekah; and Pekah,
by Hoshea, 2 Kings 15. All were
idolaters, and all came to an untimely
death. - Adam Clarke
Verse eight goes back to the high places of
Aven (Bethaven) and how they would also be
That one day, the fields
would be untended and the weeds would cover
these altars The last part of the verse is
rather interesting. Note that is the weeds -
the thorns and thistle's who utter 'cover
us and fall on us'.
Yet our Lord (Luke 23:30) and also in the book
of Revelation makes the same reference to the
same thing. In all three instances we see this
phrase used during a time of distress and
tribulation. Here is the passage in
said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on
and hide us from the face of him
that sitteth on the throne, and from the
wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his
wrath is come; and who shall be able to
What is the key here? Think about it
like this. There is a great harvest in the
last days. One group, the wheat go into the
Lord's barn, the other group the weeds
(tares), get sifted out and burned. We all
should know the passage, it's one of the
longest parables in the NT, forty verses long
So while Hosea was taking about tangible
things, real weeds, his words had deep and
very important prophetic implications. The
real weeds of his time, are going to be just
like the spiritual weeds
of the last
days, they will be asking the mountains and
rocks to fall on them, to hide them from what
they know is coming towards them. They would
rather die in an avalanche than face the
living God. Why? Just like the weeds of
Hosea's time, they hung around idols and
idolatrous worship too long.
thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah:
there they stood:
the battle in Gibeah against the children
of iniquity did not overtake them.
It is in my desire that I should chastise
them; and the people shall be gathered
when they shall bind themselves in their
Verse 9 begins with God's
word against Israel and it's sin at Gibeah.
Which of course is a reference to at least
the afore mentioned incident with the
concubine, but also is probably a reference
to the place where Saul dwelt when Israel
demanded of the Lord a King (1 Sam 10:26).
Israel stood and still persisted in its sins
from yesteryear. This is the real crime,
that they really did not repent. This is one
of the main problems when God is most
forbearing to sinners. People look upon it
as weakness or God's indifference to evil.
As we go back to Judges chapter 20 we see
how Benjamin compounded the sin.
the tribes of Israel sent men
through all the tribe of Benjamin,
saying, What wickedness is this that
is done among you? Now therefore
deliver us the men, the children of
Belial, which are in Gibeah, that we
may put them to death, and put away
evil from Israel. But the
children of Benjamin would not
hearken to the voice of their
brethren the children of Israel:
But the children of Benjamin
gathered themselves together out of
the cities unto Gibeah, to go out to
battle against the children of
The battle did not go well with the
Israelites and why they eventually had a
kind of victory, they could not catch them.
The whole incident is covered in Judges
Chapter 20 onwards.
Hosea brings this sin to light showing that
they really had not paid for it. The passage
seems to indicate that while that sin (the
consequences for it) did not overtake them
then, it will now in a far worse fashion.
Benjamin did finally survive the battle, but
now all of Israel was infected with sin and
evil. This time, the battle would
overtake them, for the Lord remembered their
iniquity. God then lays out his desire. He
remembers their sins and now he was going to
chastise them. God was going to raise up
armies against them. The last part of Verse
ten is a bit obscure and commentators do not
agree exactly how the phrase should be
rendered. The two furroughs clearly is a
farming analogy. Some think the image is one
