The World as It Shouldn’t Be

Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices, we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions our history, we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation to provide the kind of future we all want desperately for our children.” -Michelle Obama, during the 2008 presidential campaign in a speech given in San Juan, Puerto Rico on May 14, 2008. (Emphasis mine)

Michele’s words scared the heck out of me. They should have terrified every American who heard them. Michelle Obama, in a brief moment of candor, expressed in hopey-changey terms the radical transformation of life as we know it (as the high priests of Marxist social stratification and dialectical materialism dictate).

To bring about change that undoes all the worked-out good that has gone on before and which ignores the evil that such idol worship brings to bear on humanity, the pagan priests of the conflict theory idols work to invoke animus and segregation among people groups. Theirs’ is a religion of stratification struggle. Stratification struggle, they believe, will lead to revolution and revolution will lead to “the kind of future we all want desperately for our children”.

Using identity politics and divisive COVID and climate scientism, the priests of Marx-Baal-Gaia divide people into stratum of race, gender, sexuality, vaccination status, and climate crisis belief. You are considered an infidel and a “denier” if you do not bow and pray three times a day to the “right side of history” where these religious fanatics claim to be. For, they are waging an unholy war against western civilization and against humanity itself in the service of their idols.

Serving conflict theory idols, of course, benefits politicians, professors, and talking heads. Each group requires victims and a cause to save from oppressors. And, each group seeks the self-righteousness halos generated in the process. Most important for these pagan priests, though, is the power they believe is conferred onto them by the gods to force others into worship of their gods.

“It is not the truth of Marxism that explains the willingness of intellectuals to believe it, but the power that it confers on intellectuals, in their attempts to control the world. And since…it is futile to reason someone out of a thing that he was not reasoned into, we can conclude that Marxism owes its remarkable power to survive every criticism to the fact that it is not a truth-directed but a power-directed system of thought.”
― Roger Scruton, A Political Philosophy: Arguments for Conservatism

High priestess Michelle O said we are going to have to make sacrifices. Tell me, what sacrifices have Barack and Michelle made? None whatsoever. And that is because the priests of Marx-Baal-Gaia do not make sacrifices. For, they are our betters, and we are just mouth breathers. You and I are to make sacrifices, especially of our offspring.

As we have witnessed lately, the priests and servants of the prince of darkness are very concerned about the abolition of the continual human sacrifice – especially of black children – to Molech. The latest abortion ruling has them scrambling to set up new altars. There are, of course, many other ways “we” make sacrifices to the idols Michelle worships.

For example, we can let our children be exposed to sexual deviancy and critical race theory in schools. We can speak non-sense pronouns to address others. We can allow males to participate in our daughter’s sports.

We are going to have to make sacrifices. So, forsake the family unit and make the state the parent. That requires bypassing common sense, letting go of any firmly-held Christian belief and pooh-poohing any fact-checking effort. Just accept whatever the state says about COVID and climate change . . . about anything.

We are going to have to make sacrifices, ergo, we must endlessly affirm homosexuality and be accepting of depravity so as to not come across as phobic and judgmental (Only the high priests of Marx-Baal-Gaia are allowed to be judgmental). We certainly must not fuss about our borders being open to opportunists and felons and gangs and terrorists. We must never balk at the mass immigration flooding the job market and depressing the wages the lower class depends on – let them eat food stamps!

We are going to have to make sacrifices, so, let’s give away America’s sovereignty and security. And, let’s become liberty-and-mind-devoid serfs of the elite class – globalists. Change We Can Be Lost In.

Such is the “fundamental transformation” that Barrack Obama -the Saul Alinsky community agitator – and Michele we’re talking about. And you should know by now that the American Marxist’s goal isn’t to implement policies that promote individualism and self-sufficiency (or prosperity, for that matter). The goal is to move into a different place as a nation by fostering government dependency and collectivization. And, that was the same goal of murderous communist regimes. Each regime, of course, had to break a few eggs to make an omelet. But where is the omelet?

For the kind of future we all want desperately for our children, Progressive priests of Marx-Baal-Gaia go backward into history. They go there to reclaim the ideology that tears down, alienates, scourges, purges, ‘gulags’, and generates show trials like the Jan. 6 commission. They claim authority over history, the present, the future, and nature.

The megalomaniacal Barry Soetoro (aka Barrack Obama) decided that the earth needed his “fundamental transformation” special touch. To entice the dull of mind and grab the attention of thousands of universities students re-birthed through a denier-or-believer stratification process into climate activists, the Marxist Moses promised to slow the rise of the oceans.

Upon winning the Democratic nomination for presidency in June 2008, Obama promised to hold back the seas and heal the planet. After his election, though, he decided not to slow the seas and heal the planet. Instead, he proceeded to show Jeremiah Wright “God Damn America” contempt for the world as it was.

During his presidency, Barack recited the “world as it should be” mantra in every nation he visited. On tour, he blamed the United States for the world’s woes and promised a future where the planet would heal from American domination.

What Obama failed to articulate was that in his “world as it should be” there is a class of power elite that rule over useful eaters who possess limited rights, are unarmed, are forced to share the wealth, and whose numbers are controlled via abortion and government-run healthcare. Obama never disclosed that his anti-American world would be gender neutral, militarily weak, antagonistic toward white males, Western Civilization, and prosperity, Muslim friendly, success adverse, and racially volatile.

Barack Obama’s ‘World as It Should Be’ by Jeannie DeAngelis

In a June 6th 2021 interview, Barack Obama said that Joe Biden was finishing what he started. And so it is that the “fundamental transformation” revolution is now devasting America. The Biden regime is finishing off America. The Biden regime is more of a threat to Americans than Vladimir Putin or COVID:

The Biden regime mandated federal employees to get the COVID jab against their will.

The Biden regime told us to shut down businesses and our churches.

The Biden regime restricted Americans’ breathing on federal transportation through

unscientific mask mandates.

The Biden regime weaponized the Department of Justice to target parents at school board meetings and label them as “domestic terrorists”.

The Biden regime is at war with fossil fuels. Biden imposed a draconian green agenda that crippled domestic production of oil and natural gas. His energy policy sent prices soaring. “Price gougers”, and not dictator Biden, are to blame for the high costs.

The Biden regime is determined to save the planet by culling CO2-producing humans through abortion and by culling business that are not ESG compliant.

The Biden regime “recently sold roughly 1 million barrels from the emergency fund to a Chinese government-owned gas giant that continues to purchase Russian oil.

The Biden regime is more concerned about what the Chinese Communist Party thinks than what Americans think.

The Biden regime and its cabal of global grifters care more about what the World Economic Forum, the U.N., and international laws says than what the U.S. Constitution says.

The Biden regime signed several multi-trillion-dollar spending packages that have led to a four decade high in inflation and increased the national debt to over $30 trillion.

The Biden regime allowed and continues to promote voter fraud and stolen elections.

The Biden regime continues to promote racism by insinuating that Black Americans are incapable of getting an ID for voting and are unable to take care of themselves and therefore they must vote Democrat.

The Biden regime uses identity politics – social stratification politics – to divide and denigrate Americans. Example: “This a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

The Biden regime’s American Rescue Plan “would provide a $90 billion bailout to multiemployer unions, “guaranteed” to keep eligible pension plans solvent until 2051.” While we struggle, our tax dollars are being used to bailout union pension plans (and Democrat voters).

The Biden regime’s open-border policy is profiting cartels and enabling human trafficking, smuggling, rape, death and . . . the flooding the U.S. job market to lower wages.

The Biden regime has involved American money in the Ukraine-Russia conflict even though America has no vital interest in this war.

The Biden regime is prolonging the war in Ukraine with shipments of weapons to Ukraine at a cost of $800 million U.S. taxpayer dollars and another $300 million more in military aid. And again! President Joe Biden signed a $40 billion aid package to Ukraine. Ukraine is the 3rd most corrupt country in the world. Who is the money going to? That money is needed here in America!

The Biden regime’s Reckless Words Underscore the Dangers of the U.S.’s Use of Ukraine As a War Proxy

 . . .the Biden administration is doing exactly that which former President Obama warned in 2016 should never be done: risking war between the world’s two largest nuclear powers over Ukraine. Yet if any pathology defines the last five years of U.S. mainstream discourse, it is that any claim that undercuts the interests of U.S. liberal elites — no matter how true — is dismissed as “Russian disinformation.” 

The Biden regime on May 15 celebrated Peace Officers Memorial Day by blaming cops for fueling “distrust” in minority communities.

(The above list includes points from Yes, Biden And Company Are Intentionally Destroying America – COSAction (conventionofstates.com))

The campaign slogan Change We Can Believe In became the impulse for many to abandon critical thinking, capitalism, the Constitution, and Christ. For them, a hopey-changey future was in the offing. So, the load-bearing beams America rested on would just have to be replaced with found boards – reaction-based ad hoc social justice – until, until, until . . .

And while the state media continues to promote Change We Can Believe In policies, OBiden’s legacy will be seen as one of failure, exceedingly poor judgment, and staggering incompetence. And worse! When you serve idols, you make decisions that degrade and dehumanize yourself and those around you. (e.g., Hunter Biden and the god of hedonism). You make the world as it shouldn’t be – like the idols you worship.

*******

To whom will you liken me and make me equal
    and compare me, as though we were alike?
 Those who lavish gold from the purse
    and weigh out silver in the scales—
they hire a goldsmith, who makes it into a god;
    then they fall down and worship!
 They lift it to their shoulders; they carry it;
    they set it in its place, and it stands there;
    it cannot move from its place.
If one cries out to it, it does not answer
    or save anyone from trouble.

-Isaiah 46: 5-7

The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, but do not see; they have ears, but do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths.

-Psalm 135:15-17

*******

You know what’s coming, right?

Now that many, out of fear, bent the knee to the ill-conceived COVID mandates, “the world as it should be” conjurers will expand their breadth of control. They will certainly produce more fear porn (“This latest variant is the mostest baddest lethalest worsetest yet!”; “If we don’t act now on climate change, we are toast!). In keeping with the bloody history of totalitarianism, the intelligentsia – politically connected radical socialist atheists – continue to tend to the extremes.

Theywill use digital technology, including your smartphone and/or an impregnated digital device, to monitor and control your body, your money, and your behavior. Did you really think that the rollout of 5G UW was so that you could know what your sous vide machine or refrigerator was doing? The Ultra-Wideband is the harness that will soon rein you in.

The coming ‘social credit score’ system will mandate that all social media users be given a ‘truth score’ that pre-determines the accuracy of their posts. With face recognition, you will not be able to buy anything if your face matches someone with a bad social credit score.

In “the world as it should be”, Artificial Intelligence will be controlling you. You will be a slave to AI that is programmed by the worshippers of Marx-Baal-Gaia. The disconnected from reality will be connected to and controlling your reality.

Understanding Inflation – Milton Friedman

I’m Getting Over Sentimental, And You?

As we head into the New Year let’s take a moment to not look back… 

Ah, yes.

Ah, yes.

 Sentimentality is that taskmaster which keeps us longing for the leeks and garlic of Egypt, the known-knowns of past life, up to and including slavery.

 Sentimentality is gate keeper to the past, fending off reality to preserve sugar-plum memories.

 Sentimentality serves as wooer, policy maker and candlestick maker, ergo, The Great Society (aka “Let’s help the little people and feel good about ourselves in the process”, affirmative action (see The Great Society for further social science mishaps), education (aka job-security for union workers), amnesty (aka imported votes for Progressive Democrats) and multiculturalism (aka “We promote “Diversity” here, just stay off my lawn and don’t get near my rights, you fools.”)

 Sentimentality, the emo that keeps on giving, will keep an angry woman ever angry; never forgiving. For her the past will be kept stewing, waiting for the next victim to be boiled alive.

 Sentimentality will fight fires by removing the oxygen from the room: “This is the way we have always done it.”

 Sentimentality is not tradition. It is more like unclaimed baggage that keeps going around on the airport turnstile day after day. You watch it to see if anyone claims it. If not it’s yours to drag around forever.

 Sentimentality chooses the moldy and crusty bread of the past over the fresh gluten free, sugar-free crackers of the present ala “This white bread reminds me of mom.”

 Sentimentality can be good wine turned into vinegar; old wineskins never replaced.

 Sentimentality is the troll who guards the bridge to the New Year. The troll demands a toll. (Just tell the little bugger, ”I paid years ago, be off with you or I’ll call my Father Time. He’ll kick your little troll butt!”)

 Sentimentality calls up past fears and dreams for advertised future benefits, benefits created at any cost to reality. See the Social Security trust fund. See the Barney Frank everyone-needs-a-house bubble machine that unleashed the Kraken upon world finances when the bubbles burst.

 Sentimentality wants to relive the civil rights and war protests of the sixties and invoke the depression era bindle-bums of the thirties. OWS Millennials ‘must’ ‘re-live’, record and recreate a diorama of those events from a BA degree in Identity Politics perspective. The grapes of wrath must be re-trampled. Social justice must be served with an order of the freshest iPhones.

 Sentimentality “keeps me hanging on” by a thread of delusion. “Marriage is secular, a right, a ‘love-in’.” Sentimentality says “I do” to whatever makes me feel… sentimental. And, sentimental makes me feel all gooey inside like…cable TV lovers.

 Sentimentality demands that Mother Earth be saved from manmade people while avoiding fact-see leftist Pope Francis for further encyclical faldera. Does the Pope realize that the Green Movement believes that overpopulation of the world is the problem? Does the Pope realize that he is actually promoting abortion, assisted-suicide and humanist population control?  (BTW: does the Pope even understand that capitalism fills the coffers of DisneyVatican?)  And, forget “Seasons in the Sun”. We may be facing an Inferno or an Ice Age depending on which way the inverted dated is put up on the overhead. ALGore Rhythm has predicted inverted hockey stick apocalyptic weather conditions to occur at any second now. And this, my friends, despite the fact that CO2 makes growing things…green! We are told by dogged Gaia loving-tenure-loving-paycheck-loving scientists that CO2 is not green ‘making’ ‘stuff’ when man is involved. Mankind only creates off-green “problems,” “problems” that are only resolvable with enormous sums of green taxpayer money. And, to increase our awareness of the right uses for CO2 the greenie bible Mother Earth News reportedly reports “green is god, dude, especially when rolled and smoked.” Anyway “It’s hard to die when all the birds are singing in the sky.”

 Sentimentality: a Disney movie replaying your childhood over and over. You know, the time you spent fantasizing about being princess as a young boy. Animated cels have always portrayed our deepest feelings, the best of our culture and the highest aspirations of our humanity-remember? Who needs reality when you have “Frost”?

 Sentimentality is that trampoline you keep in your back yard just in case you need to jump up and down endlessly to walk away from the back and forth of everyday life.

 Sentimentality gets an Enlightened Epicurean Scientism big bang out of a singular boson appearance but considers God’s silhouette passé.

 “A sentimentalist“, Oscar Wilde wrote, “is one who desires to have the luxury of an emotion without paying for it”.

 Use “Sentimentality” in a sentence/s: “I prefer my sentimentality over tradition, dudes. Tradition is so predictable whereas ad hoc sentimentality ushers in a new age of Progress as well as a proto-social justice that protests everything that isn’t sentimental.”

 Sentimentality as cultural entrenchment, as socio-political-economic-education policy-see Spoilt Rotten: The Toxic Cult of Sentimentality (subtitle in US editions: How Britain is Ruined by Its Children) by Theodore Dalrymple. Who could resist this book with chapter titles like these: Chapter Three: “The Family Impact Statement”, Chapter Four: “The Demand for Public Emotion”, Chapter Five: “The Cult of the Victim”, Chapter Six: “Make Poverty History!”

 Sentimentality-I could go on but, at this point, if I look back, I just might become sentimental. I won’t look back. Yes, there were good times but I keep those memories like a locket around my neck. And, don’t worry. Good memories have a way of making themselves known and sustaining you at the right time-that is if you create them first. (The Israelites used to create stone monuments as a place of remembrance where Jehovah had intervened. They did not carry the monument around with them. The thought that God is Infinite-Personal became a fixed place in their memory.)

 Taking sentimentality as a daily palliative pill will regurgitate acid reflux. Worse, making sentimentality your GroupThink Emo-a demand to relive all hurts whether real, perceived, projected or revived-leads to unresolved GroupThinkAnger and to “Stokely Carmichael’s idea that “before a group can enter open society, it must close ranks.”” And to the “Day of Rage” (’69, Cornell U) and to Black Panthers with billy clubs at polling places, to the NAACP, to the SPLC’s perverted “Hate-Watch”, to Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and their ilk.

 Looking back, as one who was told not to look back, did not work out well for Lot’s wife. She may have very well thought that God was like her-sentimental about what someone holds dear, in this case her life in Sodom. She may have very well thought that God would not destroy a place she called home. She got it wrong.

 A pillar of salt goes nowhere in life. 

A pillar of the community!

A pillar of the community!

 ~~~~~

Who needs the shallowness of sentimentality when you can have full-bodied hope! And, I’m not talking about “Hope” as found in the “Hope and Change” campaign come-on that was used to lull Millennial lemmings to follow Obama over the cliffs of insanity.

 I am talking real hope. And, real hope includes distancing yourself from sentimentality and going forward with God into sublime reality, as the Apostle Paul described here in his letter to the Church at Rome (Chapter 4-5): 

“…since we believe in the one who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was handed over because of our trespasses and raised because of our justification.

 The result is this: since we have been declared “in the right” on the basis of faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus the Messiah. Through him we have been allowed to approach, by faith, into this grace in which we stand; and we celebrate the hope of the glory of God.

That’s not all. We also celebrate in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces patience, patience produces a well-formed character, and a character like that produces hope.

Hope, in its turn, does not make us ashamed, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the holy spirit who has been given to us.” (emphasis mine)

Less Than One Degree of Separation

  “I have been probing the arguments for global warming for well over a decade. In collaboration with a lot of excellent coauthors I have consistently found that when the layers get peeled back, what lies at the core is either flawed, misleading or simply non-existent.” Ross McKitrick, Financial Post

 What is posited as mankind’s greatest threat beside the obvious ~ Rosie O’Donnell returning to the View? “Climate Change!”

 “Climate Change!” is the Politically Correct non-Jeopardizing answer that will win you kudos, peer adulation and apparently enough money to buy a government-subsidized cable TV channel and then sell it to the Qatar owned pan-Arab Al Jazeera TV news network. The cross Current of “Climate Change” blows an ill wind.

 Now, we’ve both heard Barack Obama and John Kerry speak this most specious of claims again and again. The redundant talking point is meant to produce a Stockholm Syndrome like reaction from Obama’s political captives ~ the environmentalists and Millennials; basically, those who believe with all of their campfire roasted marshmallow hearts in a primordial earth filled with Kumbayah spirits.

 To indicate the thrall of such supplicants I will give you one recent personal example.

 About two weeks ago I was riding the Chicago Metra train to my downtown workplace. After a stop near the city several passengers boarded from an ‘uppity’ neighborhood near Chicago. Before we reach that stop I put my away my book, knowing that I will be standing in the train vestibule discussing whatever topic is broached among the three or four of us heading to Chicago.

 One day, right the out of the beautiful climate change blue, a forty-ish Oak Park man says that there are ad companies who will not do ad work for any company that is a “climate change” denier. He proudly let me know that he was all was for this sanctioning of companies based on “climate change” theory. I rolled my eyes but held my tongue.

 What I wanted to say: “Climate change has become a religion of radical Jihadist proportions ~ “submit to our belief system or die, you infidel.”

 The “settled science” of “climate change” is not even a joke. It is a bad joke and mere conjecture at best, if not an outright lie. It has quickly become the radicalized religion of the “goddess Gaia.”

 David Mamet said it much better in his book “The Secret Knowledge: On Dismantling of American Culture “(2011):

 Observe that to propitiate an unknowable power, the Left, ignorant or dismissive of any society or history but its own, insists upon the primacy of Trees and Soil, Oceans and Animals ~ theirs is a return to the worship of the Savage.  To see that this nature worship is not quite the good simple-heartedness they believe it is, but rather a religion, observe its imperviousness to information:  polar bears are not, in fact, decreasing but increasing in population; the earth is not, in fact, warming.

Here is a video of Dr. Ross McKitrick at Friends of Science speech (Canada) presenting graphs, charts, and an empirical approach to the IPCC report ‘bout climate.

 Of note: (19:40) “Challenge in the world of Climate Modeling”: “If things continue as they have been…something is fundamentally wrong with our climate models…” and, moments later, “climate models are too sensitive to CO2.”(20:39)

 Here is Ross McKitrick’s website. His background and several of his speeches are presented: Ross R. McKitrick

 If you were not able to sit through the video because you fear data or anything that would disrupt your belief in “climate change” then I offer one of his speeches in PDF form so that you can print it out and read it before the world ends from “climate change” overkill: “The Intrinsic Value of Nature And The Proper Stewardship of the Climate” (Shhh. Secret. The PDF explains the volcano video.)

 The speech begins with a quote from a World Wildlife Fund report headline: “Only global poverty can save the planet.” Malthus, mother Gaia is calling.

 McKitrick goes on to talk about the value of nature, the nature of value and the three zeitgeists of nature namely the “material,”” primal” and “functional”- theories of and approaches to nature. The speech is very accessible to anyone who wants to understand the thinking behind the hot-button issue of “climate change.” So, if you read nothing else, please read the speech.

 On the train to work I am reading N.T. Wright’s The Case for the Psalms. In the book’s “Afterword – My Life with the Psalms” N.T. reflects on his space, time and matter intersections with the Psalms. His words from one such intersection:

 “There was the time when I had been with people urging that we should regard the earth itself as “divine” – as the “goddess Gaia.” I felt oppressed, as though a thick and choking cloud were over my head, until the next day. The first psalm in church was 97” “YHWH is king! Let the earth rejoice.” I felt the cloud disappear as through a sudden fresh breeze: the earth is not divine, but it is the glorious creation of the true God and celebrates his kingdom arriving “on earth as in heaven.”
