‘determined to ‘do her bit’

We now turn from the worst to the worthy. From the spectacle of the worst speech ever given by the worst public figure ever and from one who does not care about the American people to remembering a public figure devoted to her people and worthy of respect. We turn from a figurehead of confusion, of conformity to confusion and of coercion to conformity to a figurehead of depth, of dignity, and of the “democracy of the dead” – Queen Elizabeth II.

When I think of Queen Elizabeth, I think history: the 96 years of her embodied history and of our mother country’s history. And while some today dismiss history for preferred dining guests, aka “end of history” narratives, the narrative of history should have a permanent place at the table.

A few years ago, I picked up a book about English history. I found it to be a fascinating dinner guest and fellow passenger on the train. Reading about the English characters described, I learned of their folly and foibles, of their wise choices and their foolish ways, of their mark on history which effects today. One paragraph that Chesterton’s words above later echoes is especially meaningful to my own conservative understanding.

The following is a quote from the somewhat cheeky English History made Brief, Irreverent, and Pleasurable by Lacey Baldwin Smith.

[Tories] were the party of Edmund Burke, having a deep respect for the sanctity of history and believing that government was “a partnership between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are yest to be born.” . . . they preached Britain’s manifest destiny as the world’s greatest Empire, took up the paternalistic cause of the common man, and changed their name to the Conservative Party.

I returned to the book when I heard the news of the Queen’s passing. The book’s back cover states “The guiding principle of this book’s heretical approach is that “history is not everything that happened, but what is worth remembering about the past. . ..”. Thus, its chapters deal mainly with “Memorable History” in blocks of time over the centuries. The final chapter “The Royal Soap Opera,” recounts the achievements, personalities and idiocies of the royal family since the arrival of William the Conqueror in 1066.

The final section in The Royal Soap Opera is titled Elizabeth II (1952–) begins . . .  Elizabeth came to the throne in a “blaze of glorious technicolor.” Queen Elizabeth II was the first television queen. The world began to see the “historic grandeur of royal pageantry”. But, of course, when media gets involved, all of the royal family’s foibles, failures and fractures are laid bare for the world to see. Thru all of “The Royal Soap Opera” Queen Elizabeth II symbolized the good, the stalwart, the faithful. She remained the rock of Gibraltar and a reference point for the far afloat royal misfits. (Please let me know if you know any such female public figure today.)

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, born on April 21st 1926, ascended to the throne on February 6th of 1952. Elizabeth was crowned on June 2nd 1953.

Today, we have ‘princesses’ who demand that government and others treat them royally. Princess Elizabeth, ‘determined to ‘do her bit’ was no such princess. She was “Princess auto-Mechanic” during WWII:

When the news broke that the Queen had passed, history became relevant again. Mini-histories have been presented in the media. Here’s one of the best historical perspectives:

Scenes from the media coverage of the Queen’s passing brought back memories . . .

1977. The Queen’s Silver Jubilee was celebrated throughout the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Elizabeth ascended to the throne 25 years before.

Having ascended to the age of 25 and wanting to see the world, I traveled to England that summer with a long-time neighborhood friend. As I recall, my friend found us a travel package – airfare, transfers, hotel, tours, dinner playhouse tickets – for $750.00 each. The trip lasted ten days.

We landed at Heathrow. The tour bus drove us to a hotel in Kensington where we stayed. The things we noticed along the way: dreary weather, green everywhere, black cabs and red double-decker buses. London was decked out with Jubilee banners. The Queens’ picture was everywhere. Souvenir shops displayed all kinds of celebratory curios.

One of the first things planned for our tour group was a pub crawl in London. I remember drinking a lot of shandy and warm pints and playing darts. Our tour group would later visit Stonehenge, Bath, Stratford-on-Avon, and Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard. (The Queen, of course, was busy with Jubilee preparations, so, the two of us weren’t invited in.)

We gazed on Windsor Castle from a distance and got a closeup view of Winston Churchill’s gravesite. The tour guide had given the tour group a choice: visit Churchill’s gravesite or go to Oxford. I was the only one to raise my hand for Oxford. I figured Churchill wasn’t going anywhere soon.

We attended a West London show – The Mousetrap. Afterward, we were treated to a typical English dinner of roasted meat, mashed potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, Yorkshire puddings and gravy.

As mentioned, our hotel was in Kensington. On our time off, my friend and I rode the tubes and took in St. James Park, the Mall, Hyde Park Corner, parts of Soho, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and Parliament.  We did it all and without Rick Steves.

A jolly good time.

Now the press is playing that fact as if these states have a choice; that they must “decide” whether to follow California’s strict new rules. That is, all new cars must be electric by 2025.

But in many states, they really don’t have a choice. Because their state legislators have passed laws tying their own state emissions standards to whatever California does. It is very difficult to rescind existing law, and it may prove to be an impossibility. This is the case in Virginia, where I live. The Democratic Virginia legislature quietly tied the state’s emissions standards to California’s in 2021. Governor Youngkin is vowing to change this law, but rescinding a law is generally harder than actually passing one. This will require legislative involvement, in a state whereby the legislative body is essentially split between the two parties.”

Conform! or Be Scorched!

Or, Joe Biden Defends “Democracy!” in Front of a Fiery Furnace!

Every week I shop at a local chain-supermarket. Lately, I’ve noticed that the store’s employees- cashiers, greeters and some of PT shelf stockers – wear a “STRONGER TOGETHER” tee shirt.

Three things came to mind after seeing the ‘sloganized’ employees this week. The first, a scene from Office Space. Joanna (Jennifer Aniston) is being scolded for not having enough “flair”. Her commitment to unity with the other flair-wearing employees and to supporting diversity of “flair” was flagging.

The second: the groupthink messaging “We’re all in this together” by the media during the days of COVID adverts.

The third was a reminder of the greengrocer’s sign as described in Václav Havel’s 1978 essay The Power of the Powerless. From the opening of section III:

The manager of a fruit-and-vegetable shop places in his window, among the onions and carrots, the slogan: “Workers of the world, unite!” Why does he do it? What is he trying to communicate to the world? Is he genuinely enthusiastic about the idea of unity among the workers of the world? Is his enthusiasm so great that he feels an irrepressible impulse to acquaint the public with his ideals? Has he really given more than a moment’s thought to how such a unification might occur and what it would mean?

I think it can safely be assumed that the overwhelming majority of shopkeepers never think about the slogans they put in their windows, nor do they use them to express their real opinions. That poster was delivered to our greengrocer from the enterprise headquarters along with the onions and carrots. He put them all into the window simply because it has been done that way for years, because everyone does it, and because that is the way it has to be. If he were to refuse, there could be trouble. He could be reproached for not having the proper decoration in his window; someone might even accuse him of disloyalty. He does it because these things must be done if one is to get along in life. It is one of the thousands of details that guarantee him a relatively tranquil life “in harmony with society,” as they say

The greengrocer’s sign is intended to signal conformity and to avoid trouble. But it’s not the way you say it, it’s more the way you mean it. Havel translated the slogan as: “I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient.”

As I learned, the “Stronger Together” tee shirt is part of the chain-supermarket’s campaign to encourage “teams to show their commitment to unity and supporting diversity”. Perhaps the tee shirt “flair” is also intended to signal conformity and to avoid trouble. The campaign, by its own admission, caters to identity politics. It also adds window-dressing “flair” – DEI & ESG signage- to its corporate websites.

What does a slogan do for you? No doubt, the company will benefit from the tee’s virtue signaling Wokeness in the form of goodwill and sales.

Come to think about it, don’t the slogans “We’re all in this together” and “Stronger Together” imply that something needs to be overcome? I wonder. Is non-conformity to be overcome? Hmmm. Communists demand conformity. And when the ‘official’ flair doesn’t get worn and the ‘official’ signs are not posted, then vilifying, intimidation and coercion follow.

“When you are not with where the majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme” -WH press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

Something Wicked This Way Came

Leftists are bullies, as are their diktats “DEI” and “ESG”. They want their way with you. Conform or be called “extremist”. You see this acted out by disciples of Saul Alinsky, a Marxist community organizer and compiler of bullying tactics.

Hillary Clinton and Obama, now Biden’s handler, studied and practiced Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. And though it is common knowledge when dealing with people that it is more effective in being nice and amenable than being mean and spiteful, Alinsky’s Tactic of demonizing your opposition was used by them (“basket of deplorables”, “bitter clingers”)

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” (Rules for Radicals, Tactics, p. 127)

There is no defense for scorn. It’s irrational and it’s meant to be infuriating – to create anger and fear. It’s meant to provoke a heated response. It’s meant to pressure the enemy into concessions. Basically, it’s bullying.

The Biden regime continues to call 75 million of us Americans “extremists”, “semi-fascists”, “extremists”, a “threat to democracy” and, a “Threat to the country”.

Obama and the Leftists running the Biden regime are not happy that millions of us don’t conform. We don’t put on the required flair. Some of us wear MAGA and FJB gear. We don’t display the right signs. Some of us put “Let’s Go Brandon” in our windows and yards and on our bumpers.

Many of us refused the jab. Many of us showed up at school board meetings and denounced the curriculum and practices of the school board. Many of us voted – in democratic fashion – only to have our votes disenfranchised by the fraudulent acts of others. Most of us know without a doubt that the election was stolen.

Oh yes, the Left loves them some controlled opposition. They love the “good Republicans” – the Liz Cheneys, the Adam Kinzingers, the David Frenchs – and not the MAGA “extremists”. They promote milquetoast Republicans in elections. They love those who cower before them. They love those who put the conforming slogan/sign in the window and say to themselves “I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient.”

“Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have. (Rules for Radicals, Tactics, p. 126)

I have long understood that Leftists do not care about hypocrisy. As self-referential nihilists, Leftists have no concept of shame. The Left does what it does by any means necessary. The Left says “to hell with truth, justice and the American way”. Hillary Clinton and Obama and the puppeteers of Biden have shown this to be true.

The Bulliest of Pulpits:

Continuing the ridicule and disenfranchisement of half the nation, community disorganizer Biden gave a menacing and divisive speech this past Thursday. With clenched teeth and fists, dictator Biden used his “Soul of the Nation” speech to trample on half the nation.

Biden stated that he “will not let anything tear us apart” but, c’mon man, the speech was intended to ridicule and stigmatize opponents and create an us-and-them- “extremists” continuum.

With Marines standing at attention behind and on each side of Biden, the optics were meant to instill angst and fear – “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”

His handlers, the Central Executive Committee, wanted everyone to know that the Communist Party of America cares about Democracy! Social Democracy! Democracy! Social Democracy! Democracy!  . . . for those who conform to the will of the Party.

Here’s Biden in total projection mode:

And, here’s Biden BS-ing (what’s disturbing is that people are clapping for his spin on the state of the economy):

As I’ve said, the Left has no shame. Continuing the divisive rhetoric with blatant lies is one of the Left’s henchmen:

And now some commentary:

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit is better than he who takes a city (Proverbs 16:32).

The optics of the speech instantly became a source of Internet chatter with the weird red background that made the President look like he was giving a stump speech from Dante’s Inferno. Indeed, it almost had that High Chancellor Adam Sutler look from V for Vendetta

“People shouldn’t be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.”

Mr. Trump and his followers, believe it or not, are essentially antifascists: They want the state to stand aside, to impose the least possible interference and allow market forces and entrepreneurial energies to work. Freedom isn’t fascism. Mr. Biden and his vast tribe are essentially enemies of freedom, although most of them haven’t thought the matter through.

Václav Havel told us what the greengrocer’s sign really said. I will tell you what Biden’s Democracy! Democracy! Democracy! Democracy! Democracy! Democracy! Democracy! Democracy! Democracy!

“If the world hates you,” Jesus went on, “know that it hated me before it hated you. If you were from the world, the world would be fond of its own. But the world hates you for this reason: that you’re not from the world. No: I chose you out of the world.

“Remember the word I said to you: servants are not greater than their masters. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too. But they will do all these things to you because of my name, because they don’t know the one who sent me.” Jesus, as recorded in The Gospel According to John 15:18-21

The Corruption of Medicine – Heather Mac Donald

“The post–George Floyd racial reckoning has hit the field of medicine like an earthquake. Medical education, medical research, and standards of competence have been upended by two related hypotheses: that systemic racism is responsible both for racial disparities in the demographics of the medical profession and for racial disparities in health outcomes. Questioning those hypotheses is professionally suicidal. Vast sums of public and private research funding are being redirected from basic science to political projects aimed at dismantling white supremacy. The result will be declining quality of medical care and a curtailment of scientific progress. (Emphasis mine)

I readily imagine that by placing barely competent or even incompetent doctors and clinicians on staff based on DEI initiatives, that health care costs and insurance costs will skyrocket because of malpractice. All for the malpractice of DEI.

Science Says:

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?

    it cannot move from its place.
If one cries out to it, it does not answer

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

Biden Times

Just the other day I received email from a local Democrat representative, one of our Build Back Betters:

Dear Friend,

Every day, I hear from constituents about the financial stress and anxiety they experience as a result of rising prices of necessities like groceries and gas. I understand the worry this creates. That is why I put together an update on how I’m fighting inflation with resources to help lower costs for you and your families.

But let’s be clear: Big oil needs to be held accountable for their role in the sky-high prices we are experiencing. Last year, the five largest oil companies made over $75 billion in profits, the highest increase in seven years. This gouging along with Russia’s unwarranted aggression in Ukraine has led to supply chain issues and higher prices for American families. That is why I introduced the Stop Price Gouging Tax and Rebate Act to hold big oil companies accountable while providing families a $100 monthly tax credit to offer immediate relief.  (Emphasis mine.)

From her website:

How is it that under Trump we didn’t have “rising prices of necessities like groceries and gas.” How is it that under Trump there was no energy crisis? And no Putin-Ukraine conflict? Do you think the 40-year high inflation has to do with the current Democrat regime policies and not with corporations and oil and gas companies, the Dems favorite scapegoats?

Yes, it is Biden’s Inflation: NOT Caused by the Ukraine Crisis (substack.com)

First, he declared open war on domestic American energy, from pipelines to drilling, prioritizing a radical eco agenda over dependable and affordable American domestic energy. Then, he and Chuck and Nancy embarked on a truly exorbitant borrowing and spending spree that sent interest rates and prices for nearly every conceivable physical asset soaring. Finally, he issued draconian and unscientific workplace vaccine mandates – many of which still remain in place – that prevented full staffing in key industries like trucking and logistics for supply lines. -Steve Cortes

Supposedly, the Stop Gas Price Gouging Tax and Rebate Act would lower energy costs for Americans with a tax rebate. Households will receive a monthly, advanced, and refundable tax credit that will be phased out for single filers earning more than $75,000 and joint filers earning more than $150,000 per year.

You see, Democrats create a problem, blame someone else (e.g., corporate greed) and then offer for us to keep our money (e.g., I’m fighting inflation with resources) as a panacea.

Not only have Joe Biden and the Democrats created horrible economic conditions with uncompromising Green energy policies, they are intent on harming people with uncompromising mandates and vaccines.  Whatever is good, Democrats do the opposite.

You won’t get reality from the effete and greedy corporate media – CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News, NYT, WaPo, etc. No. Instead, you get their social-emotional learning narratives. Democrats, like the rep above, parrot media narratives.

I have questions that the media won’t delve into:

Why is the U. S. involved in a proxy war to uphold a corrupt socialist oligarchy and jeopardizing our national security and readiness?

Why is Joe Biden trying to escalate conflict?

Why is the Biden regime sending our tax dollars to Ukraine and involving the U.S. in this conflict?

Why “The $800 million (weapons) assistance program

Why is the Biden regime requesting $33 billion more taxpayer money?

Biden Announces Another $33 Billion in Economic Assistance to Ukraine — As US Economy Crumbles, Inflation Hits 40-Yr Highs, Gas Prices Skyrocket, GDP Declines (thegatewaypundit.com)

The U.S. is sending $33 billion in aid to Ukraine. Meanwhile, this is Los Angeles.

You can be sure that media coverage of the Ukraine-Russia conflict is a distraction. It is meant to have you look away at what is happening here at home – the invasion on our southern border (2 million+ in 2021 and soon, 2022 also) and the devastating Green economic policies that destroy life as we know it to save the planet, save face and pad bank accounts.

Why is the media focused on Ukraine’s border when our southern border is being overrun by all kinds of opportunistic moochers?

Why is the Biden regime promoting illegal immigration? Foreigners wanting a better situation than the one they fostered in their own country is not sufficient legal ground for their immigration to take place.

Why are NGOs like Catholic Charities aiding and abetting the takeover of our country?

Why? “Corporations and liberal non-profits are currently organizing a mass invasion of the United States, endangering our national security and the safety of our communities.” – Rep. Lance Gooden

Why are Obama/Biden and Democrats afraid of truth (i.e., losing control of the narrative that hides their evil ways), hence the creation of the “Disinformation Governance Board” akin to Orwell’s 1984 Ministry of Truth)?

What is the Biden crime family hiding? Nina Jankowicz formerly worked as an advisor to the Ukrainian government under a Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship.

State of the Stewardship

If you have ever gardened you know that stewardship of the garden matters.

Now that mask mandates are being discarded in blue states ahead of mid-term elections and the troll Anthony Fauci is back in his hole, and the COVID-political vortex is dying down, it is time for a State of the Stewardship accounting.

Exposed recently: piles of toxic waste – noble lies, half-truths, and flat-out lies – have been dumped into our lives. So-called stewards of science, media and capitalism have poisoned the soil of our lives and have done so with impunity.

A FOIA request by TheBlaze forced Pfizer to unmask documents it tried to keep hidden for 75 years. We learn from those documents that the Biden cartel took $1 billion of your tax dollars and paid, via HHS, nearly the entire corporate media to push the deadly vaccine, and hide its adverse effects.

In response to a FOIA request filed by TheBlaze, HHS revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations. These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.

The propaganda was perpetrated by the national  COVID-19 Public Education Campaign which “aims to connect with Americans from a wide range of backgrounds. . . .to build confidence in vaccines, . . . Through a nationwide network of trusted messengers . . . The Campaign uses products . . . such as . . .Comprehensive vaccine confidence ads created for multiple platforms (radio, TV, social, digital, print, out-of-home”” to increase public confidence in and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines, . . .”

Interesting correlation:

Just the other day I went through company training about cyber security. I learned the following:

Phishing is the act of sending email that falsely claims to be from a legitimate organization. This is usually combined with a threat or request for information: for example, that an account will close, a balance is due, or information is missing from an account. “Act first, think later!” And,

Vishing is a form of phishing using a telephone to the prospective victim.

So, based on these definitions and the above revelation . . .

Vaxxing as a form of phishing using media with its pretense of legitimacy to cajole and threaten its victims to “Vax first, think later!”

We also learned about some of the effects of the toxic waste dumping: The Pfizer Vaccine Only has 1,291 Side Effects!  The adverse effects include everything from heart attacks to strokes to ALS to paralysis to clots.

Nurse Reads 9 Pages of Adverse Effects that Pfizer Concealed from Everyone – DailyClout

Evil stewards have manipulated, deceived, misled, scammed, and lied to us. We have been cajoled to accept things that are not true e.g., two weeks to flatten the curve; a one size fits all response is required for COVID; the vaccine is effective. Toxic waste has been dumped into the landscape with the effect of hurting and killing many.

Because of toxic stewardship, people who could have avoided the hospital and death were told by government authorities that readily available lifesaving therapeutics would not work. “Go home,” they were told, “and wait until things get bad before coming to the hospital”.

Because of wrong-headed and willful authoritarian stewardship, life has been turned upside. People have lost jobs. Businesses have closed. People, young people, have committed suicide. Parents and grandparents have died with no family by their bedside.

Follow the stewards of “the science”? No. Instead, follow the profit motive that propagates a vaccine narrative that dumps happy talk into our lives. Ask yourself. Do any of the vaccine PSAs contain risk information?

The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth. Prov. 15:22

****

A recent TV PSA says that getting vaccinated means going back to normal. Implicit in that ad: you do not control normal. And, “normal” compared to what? Healthy soil or a landscape of contaminated soil?

Apparently, “normal” requires a controlled opposition. And, a controlled opposition requires a mediated atmosphere. Hence the masks, the mandates, and the media blitz of a COVID doomsday model over the past two years.

Hence the climate change doomsday model being marketed now to replace the COVID crisis. Again, “Act first, think later!”

Hence, the fascistic ideological programs that impose regulations on what we say, think, accept and live by:  DEI, CRT, ESG, LGBTQXYZism. A handful of people – who do not know you or care what you think and hold to be true- want to tell you how to steward your life.

 I was a loyal Soviet citizen until the age of 20. What it meant to be a loyal citizen is to say what you are supposed to say, to read what you are permitted to read, to vote the way you are told to vote and, at the same time, to know that all this is a lie. In fact, the reality is different, but the reality you can discuss only with your friends and the family.

Activist Natan Sharansky: ‘Moral Behavior Is the Most Profitable Behavior’ – Knowledge@Wharton (upenn.edu)

Now consider, for example, ESG. Do you know that ESG will be controlling your life in the near future?

ESG is the acronym for Environmental, Social, and (Corporate) Governance, the three broad categories of interest for what is termed “socially responsible investors.”

“Each of the three elements of ESG investing – environmental, social, and corporate governance – comprises a number of criteria that may be considered, either by socially responsible investors or by companies aiming to adopt a more ESG-friendly operational stance.”

Everyone will be affected by ESG. From the link:

Using ESG metrics is an extended version of Marxist Critical Race Theory- scoring, reshaping, and mastering the financial world using Marxist tactics. It is form of control. Not only do they want to control what companies do by mandating adherence to green, social justice, and approved political views, but they want to control the entire supply chain that even supports the company. In essence–they will control everything. Only those companies who align with their ideology will be allowed access to banks, receive financing, and participate in our nation’s financial processes.

Big Banks are going in this direction. Credit card companies are going in this direction. McDonalds has joined the ESG mob. Companies that want to appear to be socially responsible and environmentally conscious in the eyes of social justice Pharisees will seek to avoid or minimize reputational risk. And that means avoiding you, if necessary, to appear socially conscious.

Consider that your bank account – business or personal – or your credit accounts will be cancelled because your “reputational risk” (ESG language) doesn’t fit with the globalist’s metrics scoring, reshaping, and mastering the financial world.

(Side note:  The means to control is creeping in everywhere.

Last fall, OSHA was demanding a list from companies of over one-hundred employees: who was vaccinated and who wasn’t and being tested. When I submitted my religious vaccine exemption document to my employer last fall, I asserted four exemptions:  from vaccines, masks, testing and being put on a list.

I had become aware prior to that time that ADP and other payroll services were offering to put vaccine status on pay statements. I did not want my vaccine status to be known and to later have it be considered an ESG-type “reputational risk”.)

Controlled opposition will come about through the takeover of your property. This will occur through digital technology that people have taken into their lives with abandon. How, you ask?

Stewards of the U.S. dollar are devaluing the dollar with printing-press dollars and, with terrible foreign policy, the dollar’s demise as the world’s reserve currency.  There is now talk of a central bank digital currency.

A cash-less digital currency means that you will become a slave and your property will be under the control of the fascistic One World system – do what they say ESG and otherwise or you will not have access to your accounts.

The coming “normal” requires a controlled opposition. So, you and I will be managed and controlled by unjust and unfaithful stewards who currently mismanage our resources.

We can fight ESG:

Use local banks or credit unions instead of big banks. Hold gold, silver and precious metals. Crypto? Crypto may soon be regulated by you know who.

I remember the stewardship of the milquetoast Jimmy Carter (1977-1981). UGH. I remember the gas lines, the hapless foreign policy, Carter’s “Malaise Speech” and the misery contained in the misery index.

Jimmy Carter (D) quoted the misery index extensively during his 1976 Presidential campaign to unseat Ford, even though Ford actually presided over a declining Misery index. Carter, on the other hand, presided over an increasing misery index of his own, starting his term at 12.72% and increasing to levels well above Ford’s highs. Carter’s misery index peaked at 21.98% in June of 1980.  His misery index was still above 20% come November 1980, so Reagan (R) was able to use Carter’s own words and the misery index against him in the following election and make Carter a rare one-term President.(emphasis mine)

U.S. Misery Index – Inflation + Unemployment (inflationdata.com)

I remember the Jimmy Carter years because the misery being produced by the Kackle and Hide-n stewardship of the U.S. economy makes its so. Stewards of the U.S. economy have created the highest inflation since January 1982.

3-10-22: The gas station down the street has the price of regular gas at $4.59+/gal. During the last administration the cost of gas at the same station was around $2.29/gal.

Why does the Biden regime want to shut down U.S. oil and gas production and make the U.S. – you and me – dependent on foreign sources for both? Does it make any sense whatsoever to hamstring America energy production for climate change whims? Where is the discussion?

On his first illegitimate day in office, “lunch bucket” Joe signed an executive order to shut down the Keystone pipeline thereby choking off U.S. energy independence and eliminating over 10000 jobs. Did anyone hear a discussion about doing this? Was there talk about the intended and unintended consequences on the majority of Americans? Or, was this done to appease others?

Did Biden make this mindless decision so as to look good in the eyes of his globalist superiors and to throw a bone to a handful of climate and environment fanatics? Forcing everyone into EVs is insanity.

The 1.5 trillion dollars Omnibus bill is an orgy of spending. The U.S. does not have the money to spend. This bill is reckless and irresponsible stewardship of taxpayer money. The bill will add to the national debt and make future U.S. citizens globalist slaves to that debt. The stewards of appropriations in Congress are terrible money managers. They have disregarded their fiduciary responsibility to U.S. citizens.

The Left – Progressive democrats and many on the Right – want people to believe that they are the magnanimous ones. They offer you all kinds of goodies – single payer healthcare, student loan payoff, COVID stay at home money, and yadda yadda yadda – with all kinds of rights. It cost Progressives nothing to offer other people’s money and rights that effect the rights of others.

Look around. Consumer prices have risen 7.9% compared to last year. Commodity prices have increased. We are likely to see a recession in the third quarter of this year.

During the last administration, America was energy independent, inflation was low (see above) and misery was going away. “Orange man bad” stewardship of America was positive and life affirming. Under the Biden regime, the stewardship is reckless, careless and destructive. The Regime has no clue about the common man – there is a massive disconnect between us and the Progressive Left.

 President Joe Biden told Congress Tuesday evening in his State of the Union address to pass legislation to lower insulin prices — after he suspended, and then rescinded, former President Donald Trump’s executive order to lower them.

As under the COVID “public health” stewardship, we will continue to witness Democide.

A controlled opposition requires messaging and stewardship that subverts.

This past week the woman’s professional network at my company invited me to celebrate International Woman’s Day (IWD):

Happy Women’s Day! Annually, March 8th is celebrated as international women’s day; a global holiday to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women. This year’s theme is Break the Bias. Thank you to all of you for continuing to break the bias. Today – celebrate by writing a thank-you note to a fellow employee that inspires you by breaking the bias or write yourself a love note praising yourself for who you are and how you break the bias (or bonus point for doing both).

When you go to the Break the Bias link you get the following gobbledygook meant to warm the cockles of your heart.

Imagine a gender equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Together we can forge women’s equality.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

A week or so before IWD, the Women’s Professional Network met for a Community of Practice (COP) session. The topic was the stewardship of your mental health. Apparently now, using the IWD messaging, one is to blame others for the stewardship of your sorry life. Finding-fault-with-others Marxism is rampant.

I’ll #BreaktheBadNews: IWD is a meaningless participation trophy recognizing a Leninist-feminist approach to life: forsake your family and live for some ideological notion of equality.

(I wonder. Does “equality” mean that males can participate in women’s sports?)

Note to self: More of the feel-good break-the-bank-money is being appropriated by the stewards of equality in Congress for more messaging effluence:

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he will ask Congress for $2.6 billion for foreign aid programs that promote gender equality worldwide, more than double the size of last year’s request.

Many people, stewards of their property, put fences around their yard. Many put alarm systems on their property. Many put up chicken wire around their gardens to keep rabbits out. People protect what they have and what they want to see flourish. But, the current unfaithful stewards of America do not protect what we have. They don’t seem to care if Americans flourish.

Often on social media: an open borders policy is touted as being humane and a magnanimous Christ-like gesture. But a one-sided open borders policy is leaving America exposed to whatever.

Would you leave your computer open to a computer virus? The operating system could be exposed to malicious software.

Such a virus could alter the way a computer operates. It is designed to spread from one computer to another. The virus operates by inserting or attaching itself to a legitimate program or document in order to execute its code. In the process, a virus has the potential to cause unexpected or damaging effects, such as harming the system software by corrupting or destroying data.

The virus is capable of reproducing itself and usually capable of causing great harm to files or other programs to many other networks. Some viruses use your information and some lock up your computer with ransomware. One is held hostage by the virus.

An open borders policy is an attack not only on your health of your own operating system, it is a pernicious attack on the sovereignty and operating system of a nation.

An open borders policy is not about helping refugees fleeing bad circumstances as advertised. An open borders policy is about corrupting America and holding it hostage for globalist purposes.

Politically bent unjust stewards (where is the justice if Americans are exposed to all kinds of injustice?) have put in place an open borders policy which leaves Americans unprotected and at the mercy of whoever and whatever comes in.

Americans, many of us, are generous fair-minded people. We welcome those immigrants who come in lawfully and want to assimilate. The open orders policy is not American. Rather, it is a globalist one-world tactic to dilute American values and produce a subservient class of people for the currently-being-fabricated globalist community of worker ants.

****

If you have ever gardened you know that stewardship of the garden matters . . . if you want things to flourish.

This post has been a brief accounting of the current state of stewardship. All told in this ledger, the current stewardship has been inept, negligent, cruel and manipulative. And deadly.

The people who presented themselves as the source of truth about a fabricated pandemic continue to present themselves as climate change experts, economic experts, cultural experts, and foreign policy experts. This kind of stewardship should scare the heck out of you.

Media, as we learn above, serves the interests of the intelligentsia and globalists because there is status and money to be had by doing so. Truth is no longer a journalist’s bread and butter. Insta-“Likes” are. The media, with a profit and status-as-power motive, facilitates the degradation and servitude of humanity by promoting the templates of globalization that are repugnant to most people.

The current stewards -our ‘betters’ the intelligentsia – include university know-it-alls, Progressive politicians, Progressive Jesuits, globalists, members of the World Economic Forum, and their ilk. These would have us submit to the jab of cultural repudiation.

We are to forsake what we hold to be true and value including the garden stewardship commission given to us by God in Genesis. Without question we are to accept the jabs of their moral effluence. These stewards cultivate the same lie that’s been around since the garden: “Do this. It’s for your own good.”

If we resist it is because we know better or feel instinctively that something is wrong and we need more information.

The wise don’t make a show of their knowledge, but fools broadcast their foolishness. Prov. 15:23

And while the typical thing is for shrewd snake-like stewards to blame others for the bad and even horrific outcomes of their stewardship, we must see through their lies and hold these stewards legally and voter- wise accountable – politicians, office holders, the media, and church leaders. Don’t go along to get along.

I recommend that after every State of the Union speech that there be a State of the Stewardship speech.

Humankind has been entrusted with the responsibility to tend to God’s kingdom on earth. We, as stewards, will be held accountable.

You might be aware of the TV miniseries Mysteries of the Unknown, a show that seeks answers to our history’s mysteries.

I want to propose another miniseries: Mysteries of the Known Knowns – a show that seeks answers to the things we know we know from our recent history.

Here are six suggested episodes with background references:

Episode 1 – Why are we being used as lab rats?

How is it that government entities demand our accountability about all things COVID BUT the manufacturers of the vaccines are NOT held accountable for what they dispense? If the risks are not discussed, how can there be informed consent?

If these agreements were retroactively rescinded would the vaccine mandates go away?

Episode 2 – If it can’t be questioned, is it science?

Bureaucrat overlord Anthony Fauci has effectively declared “I am the Way, the Science and the Life. No one comes to COVID freedom except by me.”

Another self-appointed COVID messiah, NIH director Francis Collins, told Fauci to rain down fire on scientists who don’t fall in line and obey them without question. Collins, now ‘retired’, wanted to shut down all scientific debate. And so it is that YouTube, Twitter, and their ilk are banning scientists who question “the science”.

If it can’t be questioned and debated, is it really science?

Episode 4 – Is COVID Absolutism behind the Current Psychic Epidemic?

How is it that countries with the majority of their populations vaccinated are in panic mode? Why are there calls for more panic, lockdowns, passports, and mandates? Is science, logic or even altruism behind this? OR, is the desire to create a new social order under totalitarian control behind creating a fear-based populism?

Why are people going along with the manufactured panic? Why do “the masses whole-heartedly accept everything that Dr. Fauci or other national and global health officials proclaim”? (See article below)

Why the collective psychosis? Why accept mandatedmental illness?

Background:

A recent web article shares the theory behind mass formation psychosis posited by Mattias Desmet, professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium. “He explains the [four basic] societal conditions under which a population ends up willingly sacrificing their freedom.”

  1. “A lack of societal bonding. It is easily argued that members of Western society struggled with loneliness long before the pandemic, and then with the ongoing lockdowns, isolation, and general fear of one another”, the lack of community continues.
  2. “The second condition is met when the majority of people view their lives as being without purpose or meaning.”
  3. “Free floating anxiety is the third condition for the rise of mass formation.” Record numbers of anxiety/depression medications are being prescribed.
  4. “The fourth condition is high levels of frustration and aggression, with no discernible cause.” Open hostility on social media and on the streets is evident.

The following link and video go into greater detail about mass formation psychosis:

Episode 5 – “good sign” and ‘transitory” Inflation Raises the Question “Who’s in Charge?”

Is inflation, the loss of purchasing power over time, a “good sign”? Is inflation good for America and Americans in general?

And, why did Joe Biden increase food assistance benefits by 25% if inflation was transitory?

Background:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, on CNN’s “The Lead”, said that rising prices were a “good thing” because it meant more people were buying goods.

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Inflation is skyrocketing as I don’t need to tell you. The prices for home heating costs, cars, groceries, furniture, rent, gasoline are hitting Americans right in the wallet. The White House response has been generally to say, ‘Hey, inflation shows we’re coming out of the recession. It’s a good sign.’”

Christmas Care Package

That day, when it was evening, Jesus said to them, “Let’s go over to the other side.”

They left the crowd, and took him with them in the boat he’d been in. There were other boats with him too.

A big windstorm blew up. The waves beat on the boat, and it quickly began to fill. Jesus, however, was asleep on a cushion in the stern. They woke him up.

“Teacher!” they said to him, “We’re going down! Don’t you care?”

He got up, scolded the wind, and said to the sea, “Silence!” Shut up!”

The wind died, and there was a flat calm. Then he said to them, “Why are you scared? Don’t you believe yet?” – The gospel according to Mark 4: 35-40

In this Christmas account, Jesus is NOT Away in the Manger. (Nor are you, Lord, working to fit us for Heaven To live with Thee there, as the song incorrectly goes on to say.) Jesus won’t abide in our sentimentality nor in our desires to escape earth and its capsizing gales. No. In this Christmas account Jesus, God with us, is in the same boat as we are.

He asked us to carry him over to the other side. We did what he asked and then BAM! A situation arises that looks devastating. We become desperate. And, like the winds, we lash out: “Don’t you care!”

The world around us is in freak-out mode. Paranoia is growing. And, so is mental illness.

What do people do with the constant waves of fear porn battering them on all sides? Many scramble to sit at the feet of the purveyors of fear porn. They want them to allay their fears, to bring them salvation. The world always has an answer for your fear of DEATH!

If CNN or MSNBC, for instance, reported on the above account, those talking heads would demand immediate action on climate change to assuage your fears. OSHA, another onlooking savior, would mandate life preservers and limited boat capacity To SAVE LIVES! Politicians would go on TV and demand more of our tax money to look into building a bridge to the other side To SAVE LIVES!

And of course, the CDC via OSHA would mandate that passengers in close quarters wear a mask and be quadrupled-vaccinated before going to the other side To SAVE LIVES! The world always has an answer for your fear of DEATH!

Now, there are people who feed on the spirit of fear and its high drama. They keep the mandates going. They cry for more. The COVID drama or the Climate drama or the XYZ drama gives meaning to their meaningless lives. But who do you think is behind the spirit of fear drama?

Jesus scolded the disciple’s spirit of fear – “We’re going down! Don’t you care?” – with “Why are you scared? Don’t you believe yet?” Jesus had made it clear and calming that he had the wherewithal to deal with the forces of nature that would take us down, even as he was asleep on a cushion in the stern.

The reason Jesus could sleep during a big windstorm was the same reason he could lie sleeping as a helpless infant in a manager when deadly forces were out to get him – Jesus had complete and utter trust and confidence in the Father’s love. He abided and slept peacefully in that love.

For the Father loves the Son,” Jesus says. (John 5:20) 

Why do you think you the spirit of fear is being given out? It is done to drive you away from complete and utter trust and confidence in the love of God as expressed in Jesus.

Jesus would go on to teach his disciples As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love (John 15: 9). So, this Christmas . . .

“Why are you scared? Don’t you believe yet?”

~~~~

This Christmas, it is time to take a deep breath and rest on what you know to be true. It is also time to tell the mouthpieces of evil– human and inhuman – “Silence!”

It is time to tell Anthony Fauci, Francis Collins, Joe Biden, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Bill DeBlasio, Lori Lightfoot, J.B. Pritzker and the rest of the godless ill-winds to “Shut up!”

It is not time to retreat. It is time to tie up and plunder the strong man’s house (Mark 3:27)

~~~~~

(Something to keep in mind: We read in the first chapter of the gospel according to Mark that Jesus came into Galilee announcing God’s good news.

“The time is fulfilled,” he said. “God’s kingdom is arriving. Turn back and believe the good news.”

Would God allow his kingdom to go down in a boat? No.

There is a persistent remnant theme in Scripture. When others have fallen away because they have become disillusioned with God and the word Jesus speaks, and concern themselves with the worries of the present age, and the deceit of riches, and the desires for other kinds of things (Mark 4:18), the believing faithful are delivered and brought forward. Take a deep breath, fall back on what you know to be true, and move forward.)

~~~~~

2 Timothy 1:7 reveals, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear (phobos), but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Romans 8:15 also said, “For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear (phobos).”

A Pandemic of Authoritarianism

Here are four bumper sticker/tee shirt sayings that I am proposing to publicly counter the pandemic of authoritarianism:

ACT LIKE FREE PEOPLE.

SAY “NO” TO MANDATES.

 ****

USE YOUR HEAD

OR GOV’t MEDIA WILL USE IT.

 ****

I AM AMERICAN.

I DON’T DO MANDATES.

****

“You’ve got to speak out against the madness”

 

Madness? Back-to-school mask mandate. Back to (idiotic) all-of-Illinois mask mandate (as of 8-30-21). Back-to-school and back-to-work vaccination mandates. Social distancing mandate. Open borders. Capacity limit mandate. Open borders. Vax mandate. “My body my choice.” Media generated insanity.

Fines, arrests, loss of business, loss of employment, isolation, alienation, exclusion, depression, despair, suicides. . . all brought on by a pandemic of authoritarianism.

I’ve been trying to understand the despotic Idiocracy we have been subjected to . . .  

Authoritarians. You know them, but not as leaders. They are the manipulators, handlers and those who talk down to you. Authoritarians feel they have a right to demand certain attitudes and behaviors from other people. They will tell you that there are “essential workers” and “non-essential workers”.

 

He’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him … attention must be paid. 

-Linda Lohman, Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller

Linda Lohman’s anguished demand of her two sons – for them to understand what their father Willy is going through – could be our own demand of the government.

Like Linda, we see our loved one being treated so badly by a flippant authoritarian. In the play and now in real life, a man is told that his work, his life’s effort, is not “essential.” He is told to be quiet (mask up) and go home.

 Linda’s appeal is not for some virtue signaling abstraction of attention or dignity. I read it as a cry to recover the essential Willy before it’s too late.

 

Leaders will say “If this …then possibly that.” Leaders will give you scenarios and let you choose. Authoritarians will say “If you don’t do as I say, then . . .” (e.g., Democrats in office).

To get you to behave in the manner they wish, authoritarians will clout you with slipshod reasoning. Their lazy thinking is readily available to them: a dogmatic logic system of doing the exact opposite of what someone not in their political tribe thinks is best. Like with the terming of humans as “essential and nonessential”, authoritarians deem ‘outsider’ information “non-essential.”

Authoritarians seem to be left-brain dominant. They don’t appear to make use of the brain’s right hemisphere. They fail to put things into a broader context.

New information that could greatly benefit those under them is not passed into the brain’s right hemisphere. Their brain’s left hemisphere seems to reject anything that would disturb its lock box of prefab logic. They are adamant about what they don’t want to know (e.g., low-cost repurposed hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin WORK!)

Authoritarians (e.g., Chicago’s High Priestess of Intersectionality Mayor Lightfoot) are easily upset with challenges to their authority. They throttle communication down to one-way. They also project onto others (e.g., whites, conservative and Christians) their own authoritarianism (supremacy) to avoid using their sloppy reasoning out loud.

Authoritarians deal with you and I as objects – as square pegs that, with a hammer, fit into holes they carve out.  Authoritarians deal with you and I as data to be classified and placed into boxes marked “PCR tests” “COVID cases” “Hospital beds” “Poll numbers” “CO2 emissions”” Miles driven” and so on. (They want to track your vehicle’s mileage and your travels so they can tax you per mile and keep tabs on you.)

It is very unlikely that anyone could ever change authoritarian minds with evidence or logic or empirical science. Authoritarian intransigence produces a narrow focus. And such a narrow focus coupled with an apparent inability to process fear produces arbitrary and absurd responses. Have you noticed your world radically shrinking as you obey their arbitrary and absurd mandates?

Arbitrary response: mask mandates for healthy people who could avail themselves of hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin if they acquire COVID symptoms. BUT, Illinois’ obese Governor, who says not one word about low-cost repurposed protocols that keep people out of hospitals, says he’s concerned about hospital capacity. So, he tells us to “Mask Up”.

Absurdity: mask mandates (and Vax mandates) for healthy people, many of whom have had COVID and have acquired a natural immunity that is of much greater long-term benefit than what the current vaccines with limited efficacy and a terrible side effect profile offer.

*****

There they are. Wearing masks. Disciples of J.B. Pritzker standing at the street corner in morning sunlight waiting for the school bus. To a person, the twelve masked high school kids I passed on my way home this week appeared – from their slumped brows and shoulders – to be miserable. They were distanced from each other and using their phones (likely) to find out what the alienated world thinks of them. Our kids have been muzzled and abused by the Lord Governor of Illinois.

Making a child wear a mask is child abuse. Mask are detrimental to their overall health. In a recent post, I mentioned that the governor of Illinois, J.B. “Jelly Belly” Pritzker, recently mandated that kids wear masks in school. No broad contextual science played a part in his decision. Just numbers based on inaccurate PCR tests.

The mask mandate appears to be a doubling down on scientism – left-brain dogma that dismisses any findings not in accord with its political beliefs.

Rand Paul Blames ‘Hatred For Trump’ For FDA’s Hesitance To Study Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine (ibtimes.com)

On the front page of this Sunday’s (8-30-21) Chicago Tribune:

Pritzker basing stronger mandates on the science

But politics also come into play in how governor handles pandemic

“Jelly Bell” wants his authoritarianism to be reelected. Has he, up to recently, wanted to be seen in the same way as NY’s Andrew Cuomo -a self-styled pandemic authority and counselor par excellence whose performance is worthy of an Emmy?

No doubt, J.B. wants to be seen as handling the ‘pandemic’ with all kinds of concern and empathy for voters and especially for the unionized “essential workers” and for those who have submitted their body to experimental vaccines. But here is J.B.’s recent statement revealing his sloppy, antagonistic, and fascist reasoning:

“You don’t need to be an epidemiologist to understand what’s going on here. This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” the governor said.

*****

The certainty of “the science” we are told to follow reminds me of the dinosaur story.

One day a curator at a museum was giving a tour of the dinosaur exhibits. He pointed at one exhibit and said “And this creature is 9,000,006 years old.” The patrons oohed and awed. As the group walked to the next exhibit, one patron asked the curator “How do you know it is 9,000,006 years old. The curator replied “It was 9,000,000 years old when I started here six years ago.”

“The science” was the behind the geocentric dogma of the Catholic church. The church told their subjects that the sun, moon, stars, and planets all orbit the earth. “How can we be wrong when we are the right side of science!”

(No Pope Francis, getting the vaccine is NOT “an act of love.” It is an act of self-deception, demoralization, and abuse. Mandated vaccinations are a form of battery and rape.)

*****

In a recent post, I provided a report compiled by multiple doctors that said mask wearing is harmful for children. As a parent, I would add that making a child wear a mask is not only physically unhealthy, it is also socially and psychologically unhealthy.

Humans are social creatures. We read facial expressions for feedback, for the understanding of another. The obscuring and distancing produced by masks, or by smartphones and electronic technology for that matter, I see as extremely harmful to a human’s social, emotional and physical well-being.

 

“If you smile at me, I will understand

‘Cause that is something

Everybody everywhere does in the same language . . .

-Wooden Ships, Crosby, Stills & Nash (Woodstock)

 

Masking has a demoralizing effect upon children. As children watch their parents submit themselves to arbitrary and absurd mandates, children learn that rationality, intuition, common sense, science, and truth are all subject to those in power.

The center of power is NOT the center of truth.

Illinois is NOT a hospital. I am NOT a patient of Illinois or of J.B. Pritzker or of the CDC or of Joe Biden. J.B. Pritzker, the CDC, and Joe Biden are NOT my doctors. They are not my spouse or my priest. J.B. Pritzker, the CDC, and Joe Biden and the state media are NOT my conscious.  Neither J.B. Pritzker, the CDC or Joe Biden are Lord. I do not have to obey any of their unjust and inhuman mandates couched in “public health” jabs.

Any government forcing masks or vaccines is a rejection of science, a disregard for individual human rights and a tyrannical over step of their boundaries.

Who is liable for the deleterious effects of the mandated jab? Not those who mandate or push Vax mandates. Not Joe Biden or Anthony Fauci or the CDC or J.B. Pritzker or pharmaceutical companies. Employers and doctors (and now the Pope?) are liable.

It was always up to you. Defy the authoritarians. Do not send your child to a public school in a mask. Better yet, do not send your child to a public school.

Authoritarians? You will also know them by their variants.

 

Fear-mongering Variant:

By now you’ve heard it almost all. Delta variant. Delta+ variant. Lambda Variant.

During the long march of scientism, we will continue to hear from the bio-medical authoritarian Anthony Fauci: “the what’s-next variant may be a huge problem if we don’t get people vaccinated.” The bio-medical state apparatchiks and their media collaborators continue to spread a pandemic of fear using the fear-mongering variant of authoritarianism.

No Anthony Fauci, “our common enemy “is NOT a virus that can be treated with readily available protocols that you readily dismiss in favor of an untested globalist-finagled vaccine. Our common enemy are the lies your authoritarianism demands we submit to. And how is it not fascism for government to coerce employers to vaccinate their employees?

Look. We will never stop tropical storms no matter how much tax-payer money fuels the wild fires of climate science. And we will never stop COVID variants. So go on with your life.

“Public Health” tyranny can be resisted with a readily available protocol – living within a sphere of truth.

“The world is gradually waking up to your absurd, arbitrary and fallacious approach in presenting concocted facts as ‘scientific approach.’ While the WHO flaunts itself like a ‘know it all,’ it is akin to the vain Emperor in new clothes while the entire world has realized by now, the Emperor has no clothes at all.”

Indian Bar Association sues WHO scientist over Ivermectin | Columnists | thedesertreview.com

 

Cut-and-run Variant:

Seven months into the OBiden regime and we see what happens when evil is released and good is restrained: chaos reigns.

“Chaos was always priced in?” Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos’ posed the question to OBiden during a recent interview. Biden’s foreign policy disaster in Afghanistan had hit the fan. Joe Biden responded affirmatively to Stephanopoulos.

Apparently, a cut-and-run strategy of pandemonium leading to American causalities and deaths is just another cost factor for the OBiden regime. Creating the largest hostage situation in history, apparently, is just another box checked for his Leftist regime. Hostages, after all, are only humans. OBiden’s strategy of pandemonium was already evident before his Afghanistan debacle.

The regime’s open borders policy has several devastating effects on Americans. While one head of the beast – the bio-medical authoritarian head – preaches salvation from COVID with mask mandates, social-distancing and FDA-finagled vaccines, illegal immigrants are being allowed to cross the border with their variations of COVID. American citizens be damned.

The value of your vote, your job opportunities and your physical security are of no consequence to dufus authoritarians. Being in charge, being in power is what matters to authoritarians of every variant.

The guy in charge of Afghanistan’s withdrawal, via a stolen election committed by a cabal of local authoritarians, is also the guy in charge of vaccine policy. That means that you and I are just tick marks on OBiden’s cut-and-run playbook.

Mother of Slain US Marine Exposes What Biden Did To Her Family | Populist Press 2021 ©

 

“To hell with you” Variant:

Nancy Pelosi is pushing the Soylent Green New Deal ‘infrastructure’ bill. The bill will eat Americans alive. Its passage will produce hyperinflation that will reduce your ability to purchase food, gas, and necessities. You’ve already noticed the increased costs since Obiden took office. The bill will also place the burden of national debt on our children and grandchildren, making them slaves to a devalued dollar. It will also expose our nation to the Chinese Communist Party. All for the tokenism of the Green New Deal.

 

The Misogyny Variant:

We’ve seen for the unctuous Joe Biden, his slimy son Hunter and the pompous Andrew Cuomo that women are objects to be sniffed, fondled and used for pleasure. Now we see, in Joe Biden’s case, that when women are not in close range in order to smell, touch, and fondle them, OBiden hands them over to the Taliban, Sharia Law, burkas, rape and mutilation.

Leftitarians turn women over to other authoritarians to mask and muzzle them into submission.

(Leftitarians are also OK with medical apartheid –institutionalized segregation of the vaccinated and unvaccinated.)

 

*****

It was always up to you. Defy authoritarians. Defy the mandates they impose. You don’t need to wear a mask unless you consider yourself vulnerable: you are very old or you are health compromised or you are obese, like J.B. Pritzker.

Masking

The healthy DO NOT need to wear a mask. Those who have had COVID do not need the mask or a vaccine. Live in the sphere of truth and defy the social engineering egocentric mandates of the authoritarian powers of this world.

 

One last thing to consider. There is a question asked of those about to be baptized:

Do you renounce the evil powers of this world which corrupt and destroy the creatures of God?

Fourth of July Americana Without a Fifth of Jackboot Alchemy

Empty the bottled witches’ brews – the potent eye-of-newt-baboon-blood admixture of COVID scientism and the wool-of-bat-tongue-of-dog-nihilism-cultured Marxism – down the toilet. Turn off the media cauldron . . .

~~~~~

There. Now, pour yourself a tall cool glass of Simply Lemonade. Cut yourself a piece of apple pie. Kick back and enjoy some Americana. Reanimate your imagination.

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus. – Mark Twain

Samuel Clemens, using the pen name Mark Twain, gave America two major classics of American literature: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

The lives and values of people living in the American South during the middle of the nineteenth century are conveyed through Twain’s choice of imagery, vernacular, relaxed diction and characters. Twain’s small-town realism: what is seen through the eyes and imaginations of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.

A Stamp printed in USA shows the painting “Tom Sawyer”, by Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), American Folklore Issue, circa 1972

If you were ever a kid, and I suspect that most of you have been so inclined, you will connect with the antics of Tom Sawyer. You’ll relate to Tom’s larger-than-life imaginings and his dashed realizations. Like Tom, you may have acquired experienced-based knowledge and also consequences with each twist and turn of an adventure.

You’ll remember being bored during summer vacation and being both bored and lonely during a bout of the measles. And you’ll recollect more, as you listen to and read . . .

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Chapter 22

TOM joined the new order of Cadets of Temperance, being attracted by the showy character of their “regalia.” He promised to abstain from smoking, chewing, and profanity as long as he remained a member. Now he found out a new thing—namely, that to promise not to do a thing is the surest way in the world to make a body want to go and do that very thing. Tom soon found himself tormented with a desire to drink and swear; the desire grew to be so intense that nothing but the hope of a chance to display himself in his red sash kept him from withdrawing from the order. Fourth of July was coming; but he soon gave that up —gave it up before he had worn his shackles over forty–eight hours—and fixed his hopes upon old Judge Frazer, justice of the peace, who was apparently on his deathbed and would have a big public funeral, since he was so high an official. During three days Tom was deeply concerned about the Judge’s condition and hungry for news of it. Sometimes his hopes ran high—so high that he would venture to get out his regalia and practise before the looking–glass. But the Judge had a most discouraging way of fluctuating. At last he was pronounced upon the mend—and then convalescent. Tom was disgusted; and felt a sense of injury, too. He handed in his resignation at once—and that night the Judge suffered a relapse and died. Tom resolved that he would never trust a man like that again.

The funeral was a fine thing. The Cadets paraded in a style calculated to kill the late member with envy. Tom was a free boy again, however —there was something in that. He could drink and swear, now—but found to his surprise that he did not want to. The simple fact that he could, took the desire away, and the charm of it.

Tom presently wondered to find that his coveted vacation was beginning to hang a little heavily on his hands.

He attempted a diary—but nothing happened during three days, and so he abandoned it.

The first of all the negro minstrel shows came to town, and made a sensation. Tom and Joe Harper got up a band of performers and were happy for two days.

Even the Glorious Fourth was in some sense a failure, for it rained hard, there was no procession in consequence, and the greatest man in the world (as Tom supposed), Mr. Benton, an actual United States Senator, proved an overwhelming disappointment—for he was not twenty–five feet high, nor even anywhere in the neighborhood of it.

A circus came. The boys played circus for three days afterward in tents made of rag carpeting—admission, three pins for boys, two for girls—and then circusing was abandoned.

A phrenologist and a mesmerizer came—and went again and left the village duller and drearier than ever.

There were some boys–and–girls’ parties, but they were so few and so delightful that they only made the aching voids between ache the harder.

Becky Thatcher was gone to her Constantinople home to stay with her parents during vacation—so there was no bright side to life anywhere.

The dreadful secret of the murder was a chronic misery. It was a very cancer for permanency and pain.

Then came the measles.

During two long weeks Tom lay a prisoner, dead to the world and its happenings. He was very ill, he was interested in nothing. When he got upon his feet at last and moved feebly down–town, a melancholy change had come over everything and every creature. There had been a “revival,” and everybody had “got religion,” not only the adults, but even the boys and girls. Tom went about, hoping against hope for the sight of one blessed sinful face, but disappointment crossed him everywhere. He found Joe Harper studying a Testament, and turned sadly away from the depressing spectacle. He sought Ben Rogers, and found him visiting the poor with a basket of tracts. He hunted up Jim Hollis, who called his attention to the precious blessing of his late measles as a warning. Every boy he encountered added another ton to his depression; and when, in desperation, he flew for refuge at last to the bosom of Huckleberry Finn and was received with a Scriptural quotation, his heart broke and he crept home and to bed realizing that he alone of all the town was lost, forever and forever.

And that night there came on a terrific storm, with driving rain, awful claps of thunder and blinding sheets of lightning. He covered his head with the bedclothes and waited in a horror of suspense for his doom; for he had not the shadow of a doubt that all this hubbub was about him. He believed he had taxed the forbearance of the powers above to the extremity of endurance and that this was the result. It might have seemed to him a waste of pomp and ammunition to kill a bug with a battery of artillery, but there seemed nothing incongruous about the getting up such an expensive thunderstorm as this to knock the turf from under an insect like himself.

By and by the tempest spent itself and died without accomplishing its object. The boy’s first impulse was to be grateful, and reform. His second was to wait—for there might not be any more storms.

The next day the doctors were back; Tom had relapsed. The three weeks he spent on his back this time seemed an entire age. When he got abroad at last he was hardly grateful that he had been spared, remembering how lonely was his estate, how companionless and forlorn he was. He drifted listlessly down the street and found Jim Hollis acting as judge in a juvenile court that was trying a cat for murder, in the presence of her victim, a bird. He found Joe Harper and Huck Finn up an alley eating a stolen melon. Poor lads! they—like Tom—had suffered a relapse.

America has been undergoing a hostile takeover by the Wicked WOKE. Since the ‘60s this red army has infiltrated our education systems. From elementary through graduate school, it has promoted an infighting America. Using Marxism’s class warfare, identity politics and now Critical Race Theory, one is taught to hate America, hate Capitalism and even your own white skin color. What is the Wicked Woke’s motivation?

 . . . if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. Mk. 3:25

The military is being subjected to Marxism and CRT. To get first-hand insight, read Lt. Colonel Matthew Lohmeier’s book Irresistible Revolution; Marxism’s goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. Lt. Colonel Lohmeier was sacked from his command following this book. This man has courage that many in leadership lack!

Businesses are now submitting to cultural Marxism. The over a century old engineering company I work for is now celebrating the division of the company into identity groups via the tokenism of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives (DEI). Apparently, the adult owners and managers are being led by the nose by the new recruits once matriculated in indoctrination classes.

American history is tortured into saying America is a racist country (vide anti-American Communist sympathizer Hannah Jones’ 1619 Project).

People are waterboarded by the media into feelings of panic and terror with a constant deluge of “pandemic” counts, deaths and variants, mask wearing mandates, lockdown mandates, vaccination as salvation, a Jan. 6th narrative, racism behind every bush, and an impending climate change apocalypse.

Just the other day the Biden regime’s Energy Sect. Jennifer Granholm was on CNN. When asked a leading question, Granholm suggested that the building in Florida may have collapsed because of climate change. Why instill fear in people? Why provoke anyone to think that their building may collapse at any moment due to climate change? Why? Fear is used for political ends.

Through relabeling and redefinition of terms, the NSA and FBI pronounce white Americans who love their country “White supremacists”. This now ‘allows’ them to spy on American citizens with impunity.

We will soon be made to lease our homes. The global elites (Warren Buffett’s Berkshire-Hathaway Real Estate included?) are buying up housing and real estate. You will be forced to rent and accept their lease terms, including their progressive Marxist agenda. Private property will be taken away.

The Biden regime and Democrats in Congress aim to spend enormous amounts of taxpayer money. In doing so, our country will be headed for financial ruin – hyperinflation, market collapse and the dollar will lose its standing as the global reserve currency. Our children, grandchildren and their children will suffer great hardship because of their out-of-control spending.

Our constitutional republic is being destroyed by those who cry “Our Democracy is under attack!” while increasing their censorship of what Americans can and cannot say.

When the Biden regime took over the White House in Jan. of 2021, our constitutional republic was subjected to malicious attacks. One of the puppet dictator’s first acts was to abolish what he called the ‘offensive’ 1776 Commission. He also restarted the racial sensitivity reprogramming of American citizens.

Below is a copy of what the Biden regime abolished and what militant ideologues continue to pillory as being “lies” and “propaganda”.

Turn off the media cauldron. Download and read the 1776 Report to your family.

From the 1776 Report Conclusion:

Identity politics is fundamentally incompatible with the principle of equality enshrined in the Declaration of Independence.

Of note, Dr. Carol M. Swain was the Vice chair of the President’s 1776 Commission. You will want to go to her website to watch the video From GED to PH.D: the Carol Swain Story. (I doubt that she is “black enough” per the racist standard set by Joe Biden and the rest of the race hustlers.)

“What to the slave is the Fourth of July?’ This Frederick Douglass quote is from his oration on July 5th, 1852 – 76 years after the founding of the country.

*****

Unlike President Wilson (see “The Meaning of Liberty”) who progressively sought to bring the Declaration up to date, President Coolidge affirms the enduring veracity of human equality, inalienable rights, and the consent of the governed—“those old theories and principles which time and the unerring logic of events have demonstrated to be sound.”

Welcome to all of the countries accessing my blog:

Who Says So?

As kids we preceded “Who Says So?” and “Who do you think you are?” with “Oh yeah!” “These questions weren’t posed to source a truth-bearing authority we would readily accept. Rather, they were a demand to know “Who thinks they can tell me what to do?”

The hands-on-the-hips stance has been around since the Garden of Eden. It became the posture of mankind after Adam and Eve accepted the serpent’s imperious challenge to God’s authority. The posture of the defiant adolescent is in vogue today.

By way of a prolonged adolescence – from playground to the political realm, say – the childhood attitude has remained the same: “Who thinks they can tell me what to do? The past holds no authority. Truth holds no authority. Only my power holds authority.”

And so it was that elected officials dismissed the U.S. Constitution as an afront to their dictatorial ways. The playground stance became Woodrow Wilson’s “living Constitution” posture under the ruse of “progress”:

All that progressives ask or desire is permission—in an era when “development,” “evolution,” is the scientific word—to interpret the Constitution according to the Darwinian principle; all they ask is recognition of the fact that a nation is a living thing and not a machine.

Owing to the same progressive posture, FDR bullied the Supreme Court into accepting his definition of the Constitution’s “commerce clause”. He was then able, with the tentacles of bureaucracy, to regulate and control the banks and the U.S. economy. This wasn’t crisis management. This was the elitist “Who thinks they can tell me what to do?” FDR taking over “we the people”.

FDR’s reign created a monstrous welfare state. With the government’s imposition of the “New Deal” and the National Recovery Act, millions became dependent – infantilized – under the government’s new parenting role. Later, FDR would take account of his “enlightened administration”. He would call government welfare “a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit”.

LBJ, an FDR lackey, adopted FDR’s imperious attitude. He extended the New Deal’s use of a big and more powerful government to overhaul society.

“The truth is, far from crushing the individual, government at its best liberates him from the enslaving forces of his environment.”

With the enslaving forces of government and apparently ignoring FDR’s admission of welfare’s dehumanizing effects, the imperious LBJ created the ruinous Great Deal: the “Great Society” and “War on Poverty.”

Within the same “nobody can tell me what to do” echo chamber of elitists, the haughty Barack Obama’ announced the “fundamental transformation” of America. This was to bring about Obama’s version of “hope and change” for us little people.

Remember Obama’s spiritual and ideological mentors Jeremiah Wright, Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky? Remember these bullies with the playground attitude “Who thinks they can tell me what to do? I tell you what to do.” They taught Obama to impose his will onto others for the sake of radical transformation.

Remember Obama’s despotic weaponization of government against naysayers? Remember Lois Lerner and the IRS targeting scandal?  Remember the high and mighty Obama trashing America to foreign nations?

The almost inorganic “Oh yeah! Listen man!” Joe Biden and his regime, an Obama franchise, are “Building Back Better.” The regime wants $35 billion dollars to add 75,000 agents to further weaponize the IRS.

The regime is in the process of tossing the Constitution and creating a Woke “living constitution” form of government. This takeover of America will benefit most those in positions of power including globalists. You and I will have the Constitution ripped from our hands. We will be handed a “Here’s who says so” card. The European Union has already issued “permission” cards.

(The Biden regime’s focus on the WOKE religion of racialism will buy them votes. Biden and Progressives (FDR, LBJ and Woodrow Wilson among them) infer that black Americans are inferior and can’t function in society – whether in business or as a voter or in feeding and housing themselves – without them. Their solution is more of their “enlightened (Woke) administration” and less of the Constitution.  

“Juneteenth” is Biden’s token gift – a refrigerator magnet – to black Americans. It also serves to keep America annually focused on racialism, BLM and CRT.

It appears that behind Anthony Fauci’s defense of himself on MSNBC as the embodiment of science – people’s attacks on him “are attacks on science” – is “Who do you think you are?” 

Owing to a prolonged adolescence – from playground to philosophical realm, say – the religion of deconstructionism was born. Its tenets hold that there is no legitimacy or “Who says so?” authority in the world. This was the stance of the 60’s French deconstructionist Jacques Derrida.

The deconstructionist theory of textual analysis holds that a text has no stable reference. The theory questions traditional assumptions about identity, truth, certainty, and the ability of language to represent reality. Critics have rightly called deconstructionism a dangerous form of nihilism.

Due to a prolonged adolescence – from playground to popular culture, say – we hear “No one has the right to tell me what I can and can’t do except my political tribe.” The shutdown mind – no debate, no questioning, censored social media, etc. – is sold as the right thing to do.

Maintaining narcissist affirmation from an elitist’s perspective is the objective. Hence, the culture of repudiating and canceling anything that doesn’t conform to a narrative of empowered-self.

Just this morning I went shopping for groceries in a local super store. I passed the women’s clothes section. On the wall was a large ad photo of a large woman modeling some of the clothes being sold. The statement above her read “The maximum of self-love”.

The childish attitude of “Who thinks they can tell me what to do?” benefits no one. In fact, when it’s the posture of political overlords, philosopher-ideologues and the power-hungry, people are canceled, put through struggle sessions, de-platformed, blacklisted, killed, forced into labor camps or deported.

There are the willing who submit to a system that will not countenance disagreement. But minds that shut down to only accept the pablum given it by its tribal overseers will find that they have become infantilized. They will remain little children under the watchful eyes of the parent state.

(Read Closing of the American Mind by Allan Bloom to gain insight into the progression of narrow-mindedness since the ‘60s.)

A grown-up post-modern stance of questioning the source and legitimacy of assertions, is a welcome posture in any discipline. Science (including medical science Dr. Fauci!), philosophy and theology depend on inquiry. Questioning is a healthy stance when its objective is sourcing truth. Questioning is squashed for political ends or for the negation of truth.

Note:  a key indicator of whether something is true or a lie: truth never manipulates or coerces one to accept it; lies and half-truths serve to manipulate and coerce. As humans, we want to live in truth and be respected for that desire. We do not want to be manipulated by ideologues, technocrats, and bureaucrats.

One last thing before I move on. By now you know that Progressives, like the willful children they are, believe they know everything and that you should know everything about them. That is why they walk around with the offended attitude “Who do you think you are?”

Progressives are not mortals. They are superior omniscient beings with “enlightened” WOKE morals. Not only do the WOKE know their own hearts and minds inside and out from constant reprogramming, they also know what is in another person’s heart and mind. Yes, they are mind readers and the ministers of “science” and “hope and change”. Progressive Jesuits come across as being more Christian than Christ with what they readily accept.

Out of their prolonged adolescence, Progressives, like the proud and stubborn children they remain, project onto others all kinds of intent.

Progressives condemn people on the spot. That is how they can call me, a white woman, a “racist”. That is how they can call the Founding Fathers “racist”. That is how they can say that any disagreement is an attack on them, the embodiment of “science”. That is how they can criticize people about their purported effect on climate change or about gun ownership or about any multitude of internalized offenses.

We have ‘progressed’ out of the post-modern age back to the age of Pontius Pilate: “Truth is what I say it is and don’t you forget it.”

It is no surprise that the mental health of the users of the narcissism-based narcotic of Progressivism has declined dramatically. Social media documents the decline.

The hands-on-the-hips stance has been around since the Garden of Eden. It has been used to stare down and de-platform anything that challenges a certain mindset. During the first century AD, Jesus encountered “Oh yeah! Who do you think you are?”

The gospel according to Mark reads as a response to that very question.

Mark opens the “good news of Jesus the Messiah, God’s son” with the authority of centuries-old Scripture. Words from prophets Isaiah and Malachi preface his account. (Note: Mark ascribes both texts to Isaiah, the more prominent author.)

Isaiah the prophet put it like this: “Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of me; he will clear a path for you.”

A shout goes up in the desert: “Make way for the Lord!” Clear a straight path for him!”

John the Baptizer is then presented as the one clearing the way for the Messiah – the Ultimate Authority. John tells his followers “Someone a lot stronger than me is coming close behind.”

Jesus is baptized by John in the river Jordan. The heavens open. The spirit in the form of a dove descends onto Jesus. A voice out of heaven says “You are my son! You are the one I love! You make me very glad.”

One would think that that event alone would suffice to qualify Jesus as the Ultimate Authority, but Mark continues to document the outworking of Jesus’ Ultimate Authority.

Jesus announces the kingdom of God (1: 15).

Jesus calls disciples (1:16-20).

Jesus teaches with authority in synagogue (1: 21-22).

Jesus casts out demons (1:23-27).

Jesus heals the sick (1:29-43).

Then (in chapter 2), a lame man is lowered through a roof to where Jesus is teaching. Religious legal experts were in the room. They were listening and waiting for Jesus to produce Messianic credentials.

 Jesus tells the lame man to get up and that his sins are forgiven. (2:1-12) These shocking words blew the roof off of the expert’s thinking.

“How dare the fellow speak like this?! Only God forgives sins!” Who do you think you are?

The next thing the legal inquisitors find out is that this guy who forgives sins also eats with sinners.  (2:16) What kind of Messiah is that? We don’t behave like that!

Mark records more hand-wringing by the religious authorities (3:1-5).  Jesus heals a man with a withered hand on the Sabbath. This healing did not go over well – it was deemed as doing ‘work’ on the Sabbath. Jesus wasn’t “following the science”. So, Jesus had to be de-platformed:

“The Pharisees went out right away and began to plot with the Herodians against Jesus, trying to find a way to destroy him.”

Jesus continues to not “follow the science”. He “scolded the wind, and said to the sea, “Silence! Shut Up!” The wind died down and there was flat calm.” (4:35-41)

Jesus touches the unclean. (5:25-32)

Mark records that Jesus sends out his disciples with his authority. (6: 7-13)

Jesus feeds 5000 with 5 loaves and 2 fish. (6:34-44)

Jesus walks on water. (6:47-51)

Jesus’ disciples eat with unwashed hands. (7: 1-15)

Jesus removes an unclean spirit from a child. (7:24-30)

Jesus feeds 4000 with 7 loaves and “a few small fish”. (8: 1-9)

Jesus heals a blind man. (8: 22-26)

Jesus is transfigured (his glory revealed) before Peter, James, and John. (9: 2-8)

Jesus casts out an unclean spirit from a boy. (9: 16-27)

Jesus teaches his disciples about authority. (9:35-49)

The first half of Mark’s gospel account documents Jesus’ ultimate authority over nature, diseases, evil spirits and the “follow the science” orthodoxy of his day.

In the second half of Mark’s “good news”, we read that Jesus had set his face toward Jerusalem. What awaited him there was not a triumphal entry nor a clear path. He would encounter soldiers, betrayal, an angry mob, Pontius Pilate, scourging, and crucifixion. It was intended punishment for not “following the science”.

Jesus was handed over to be questioned by the “Who do you think you are?”- “What is truth?”- “follow the science” authorities. They proceeded to ‘de-platform’ Jesus.

The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus revealed his authority over evil, sin and death. It also revealed his authority over man-made narratives. Jesus answered “Who says? with utter humility and self-denial. Jesus is the Ultimate Authority. Yet there are those, still with hands on hips, claiming to be the ultimate authority. Let’s see them do what Jesus did and prove it.
