Culture War

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on May 29, 2022 by andelino

Radical leftists don’t want a “may-the-best-facts-win” debate. They want power.

The culture war is now an open nationwide conflict. Revolutionaries have captured and consolidated power over news media and social media. They are using that power to smash tradition, religion, history, family, childhood and even biology, rebelling against reality itself. And they are using their power to censor people who oppose them.

Now they are striking against the very existence of free speech.

Twitter Fiasco 

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on May 26, 2022 by andelino

The greatest threat Elon Musk poses to Twitter is not taking control of the platform for future purposes, but uncovering the previous inner workings of the entire ruse.

Musk estimates that fake accounts make up at least 20 percent of all Twitter users, exceeding the 5 percent Twitter reported to the U.S. Securities and Exchange. If Musk can prove his case — and a recent audit survey about the sum of fake followers suggests his case is strong — Twitter would face legal consequences.

Musk also has an opportunity to pull back the curtain on the foundation of lies that propelled Twitter to lead the most influential institutions in the country into a false reality.

Meaning of Life

Posted in uncategorized with tags , on May 20, 2022 by andelino

The quest of the world’s richest man is to discover “why we’re here.”

Business magnate Elon Musk said in an interview with ted curator Chris Anderson on April 14 that his “driving philosophy” in life is to understand the meaning of human life. His “motivating philosophy” in life “is to understand what questions to ask about the answer that is the universe.” He would like “to understand why we’re here, how we got here, what … is going on.”

“And so that is my driving philosophy, is to expand the scope and scale of consciousness that we may better understand the nature of the universe,” he said.

Free Speech on Twitter

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on May 16, 2022 by andelino

Last week a great blow was struck for online freedom. Billionaire Elon Musk bought Twitter. Liberals around the world have clenched their pearls as Musk promises to bring the once cherished principle of freedom of speech to the platform.

But his task may not be so easy. It’s not just Twitter’s governance that wants to restrict what can be said on Twitter. Other very powerful forces also want to control what is said online.

At the same time that Musk was putting in his bid for Twitter, the European Union agreed on outlines for its Digital Services Act, which would create a new European bureaucracy able to police what is said online, with a global reach.

Undermines Democracy

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on May 15, 2022 by andelino

Does “misinformation” or “censorship” pose the greater threat to democracy?

Only four years ago, Project Veritas caught Twitter staffers on hidden camera admitting that their company censored conservative speech using shadow banning. The policy manager of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council told an undercover reporter that the company was working on ways to ensure that specific people did not show up in Twitter users’ information feeds. And a direct messaging engineer told an undercover reporter that the company was flagging tweets that mentioned “God” and “America.” Yet for many prominent Democrats, this shadow banning is not enough.

Hype or Health Concern?

COVID—Here We Go Again—Hype or Health Concern?
by Shane Idleman

Most folks agree that the virus is real, but our unprecedented response to it has been as alarming as it has been life-altering.

Millions are living in constant “fear and isolation.” The illusion of safety created by the continued “lockdowns, shutting down of businesses, and general fear-mongering” have actually led to the fueling of “addictions, increased rates of suicide and domestic abuse,” and a host of other serious problems you are not seeing reported every 30 seconds in the news.

It’s not worth the cost, folks. . . not even close. For example in California, can we not locate total deaths in the State? Everything appears to be COVID related. Granted, if a person’s not feeling well and they’ve been recently exposed to COVID, that’s one thing (use wisdom), but if somebody was almost around someone who might have caught it from a third cousin who may have walked by someone on the beach who could have touched that sneezing guy’s dog, that’s another thing.

There is a clear agenda at work from packed crowds at Joe Biden “victory” celebrations to an almost non-existent reporting of the flu. A headline in November read, “Quarantined, sick voters can go to polls on Tuesday, CDC and DPH say,” and the NPR recently reported that Tesla’s Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he’d taken four rapid coronavirus tests, with half coming back positive.

Musk, like many of us, have skepticism about the treatment and the truth behind the virus. It seems that the virus is only dangerous when it suits those in authority. Mom-and-pop shops are kept closed and forced out of business while the large, and politically connected chains, are allowed to stay open.

There is no outcry about masks and distancing when thousands of protestors or Biden-supporters gather for a party, but when 50 people meet to pray for our nation and worship God it’s labeled as a “super-spreader.”

Closing churches has been a central focus, while at the same time California governor Gavin Newsom actually stated, “For those of you out there protesting, I want you to know that you matter. To those who want to express themselves…God bless you. Keep doing it. Your rage is real.”

And if this were not absurd enough, now Californians are told that at Thanksgiving we are to be limited to no more than three families and that if we do meet, no one can play a trumpet or tuba. Singing is “discouraged” as well.

What’s even more interesting is that diners at restaurants are told to keep their masks on in between bites.” Seriously—this is from the governor’s office! It would be comical if it wasn’t true. I respect our governor and pray for him and his wife, and their kids, but it’s time to take a look at all the “inconsistencies.”

Could those in positions of influence and authority be using the pandemic as an opportunity to start what they term a “global reset”? It appears that many have a vested interest in doing so.

The World Economic Forum put this on their website: “There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.”

It looks like they are taking Rahm Emanuel at his word when he famously stated, “Never allow a good crisis to go to waste.”

We also have Dr. Fauci’s warning of a “surprise outbreak” during the Trump administration when he spoke in 2017, and Bill Gates and his wife appearing to be excited about a second wave.

Was this just a good guess on Fauci’s part? And why is Gates so happy about outbreaks, pandemics, and deaths? If it seems almost like high-ranking officials have already planned out these exact virus scenarios, it’s because they have.

It gives the average American great cause for concern. Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson  has exposed many other inconsistencies as well, which she lays out in detail on her website.

Then we have the huge inconsistencies with masks. We wear them before entering Costco yet pass by hundreds of people in close proximity who all touch the same credit-card machine. Wear masks to enter a restaurant and walk to your table, but once at the table you can take them off, even though you are talking to the employees within the magical six-foot bubble of COVID safety.

It defies logic and common sense. We enter banks with masks but then exchange cash with the teller. Sure, we can walk around with gallons of hand sanitizer, but then we need to worry about the FDA’s updates on which hand sanitizers are safe and which ones cause more harm than good by causing antibody resistance.

Every contradictory statement and all the nonsensical government guidance is designed to perpetuate the fear, not alleviate it, and certainly not to actually stop the “pandemic.”

For proof, just look at the skewed numbers, fake photos, and elevated stats custom-crafted to instill fear and encourage mindless compliance. As just one example, a recent account of a man dying of alcoholism caught national attention because his cause of death was recorded as COVID-19.

Reports of distortions of facts abound, such as doctors being told to write COVID-19 as the cause of death even if it was not. The San Diego Tribune just ran a story quoting county supervisor Jim Desmond as saying, “We’ve unfortunately had six pure, solely coronavirus deaths—six out of 3.3 million people.”

I’m not minimizing even one death, but there is a greater chance of dying just walking down the street than from COVID-19 in most parts of the USA.

Even though some dismiss the CDC’s report that in 6% of the deaths COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned, the truth is that this is very important. When a person passes away, there can be a number of reasons listed on their death certificate. When we say, for example, that 225,000 people have died of COVID, that’s very misleading.

It is more accurate to say that they died with COVID, not necessarily because of COVID. How do we know that a bad case of the flu wouldn’t have led to death as well? How do we know that although they had COVID, they actually didn’t die of pneumonia, heart disease, or an array of other issues?

Although even one death is heartbreaking, we must look at the whole picture. I guarantee that if someone like Barack Obama were president, these numbers would have been downplayed like they were for swine flu. From  April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, the CDC estimated that there were 60.8 million cases of H1N1, resulting in 274,304 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths. Compare the 60.8 million H1N1 infections with the less than 2.5 million COVID infections, and imagine if they recorded numbers based on how they do it now. I bet the 12,469 would be off . . . way off.

The debate rages on whether hospitals are paid more for COVID patients, but I don’t recall this type of dispute for H1N1. And if it is true that hospitals are not being paid more for COVID patients and it is all just a crazy right-wing conspiracy theory, then why are people reporting that they received a call that they tested positive for COVID when all they did was sign up for testing, stand in line, and then leave because of the wait? If nothing else, it is worth legitimate investigation.

Ironically, we don’t hear much about the flu these days. We often don’t get tested for the flu when we are sick. We’ve not been quarantined, nor have we shut down the economy or enforced mask mandates, even though up to 800,000 people are hospitalized and as many as 61,000 people die every year from the flu.

Yet we use words like “seasonal” or “caught a bug” for the flu, while words like “plague” and “pandemic” and other alarming terms are used for COVID. Folks, again, continuing lockdowns and shutting down businesses is not worth the damage it is doing to our society. Worse, it is not even the right approach, assuming the goal is to actually solve the problem rather than perpetuate it.

Is Herd Immunity and Building Better Immunity the Key?

Expert epidemiologist Dr. Knut Wittkowski, explains what will solve the problem: “The only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected, or they had very, very mild symptoms, especially if they are children.” So, it’s very important to keep schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible, so that after about four weeks the virus will be exterminated.

If there are not ulterior motives working behind the scenes, then why are we not helping people build their God-given immune systems? It seems like every doctor is talking about “underlying health issues” and “compromised immune systems” but doing nothing health-wise to fix it.

A weak immune system forces your body into overdrive and is severely taxing physically, which can lead to significant health issues, including death. Most understand that those with compromised immune systems are more susceptible and even die from the flu. I often wonder how many diseases could be prevented or reversed by focusing on diet and lifestyle.

Multiple sclerosis, for example, is a disease where the immune system slowly consumes the protective sheath that covers the nerves. Can this happen because the body is kept in a toxic state and not allowed to heal? If the immune system is already taxed because of poor health and bad eating habits (e.g., sugar, food coloring, additives, and chemicals), more fallout will occur. Sadly, most want the easy route: “Just give me a pill and a potion.”

A personal example involves my youngest daughter. She was not breathing well at night. The physician said that her tonsils and adenoids were inflamed and needed to be removed. Knowing that tonsils and adenoids help with immunity, we tried a different route first. We completely changed her diet by removing all sugar.

We focused on life-giving food and a daily nap. She was breathing well within a week, and an ear infection that had been lingering healed as well. The right nutrition, along with deep sleep, creates a powerful environment for healing. For health tips, my book, “Feasting and Fasting: What Works, What Doesn’t, and Why,” is a good resource.

The Destabilization of America

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 4, 2020 by andelino

By Shane Idleman

Books could be written on how we got to this point, but let me offer just a few thoughts from a biblical perspective.

Destabilization by false information. Unless you have beaten Musk to the punch and have been on Mars for the last decade, you have clearly seen how many in the secular media purposely create false narratives and use lies and carefully edited half-truths to push their agenda. They withhold information, such as all the black police officers who have been killed recently, and deliberately fail to highlight the positives alongside the negatives, creating the illusion of an imbalance where one does not exist.

For example, two years ago a deputy sheriff who attends our church had to pull over on the 101 freeway and resuscitate a black female suffering from a drug overdose. I tried to contact several news outlets, but no one wanted to run the story. The lesson here is to be very careful about where we get our information. Much of the media is owned by large corporations who would love to see America fail. One recent headline read, “CNN sticks to liberal script, ignores black police officers killed in riots.” This is appalling and should not be tolerated.

Destabilization by the enemy within. Many are coming to believe that what we are witnessing is an orchestrated attempt to destroy our economy and disrupt the November elections. Peaceful protests are infiltrated by hate groups paid by individuals with deep pockets to create confusion and chaos. Why is there such a huge upheaval? It’s simple. The current administration is working to minimize the murdering of babies. They are also very concerned about race issues and trying to do the right thing the right way. They are being a terror to terrorists and are bringing the Bible and God back to Washington and the nation’s schools.

They want to remove the pulpit-silencing Johnson Amendment. Christians with godly values are being promoted to some of the highest offices in America. The president is surrounding himself with godly counsel. There is a love for Israel. They are honoring hard work and minimizing free handouts. The list of biblical accomplishments is impressive. Now you see what the real battle is: “A battle for the soul of our nation.” God doesn’t judge a nation based on the character of one man; He judges it based on the spiritual health of its people. Never forget that.

Destabilization by intolerability. Those waving banners of tolerance are often the most intolerant of those who oppose them, as one Birmingham pastor recently discovered. Tony Perkins writes, “A handful of likes were all it took to make the biggest church in Alabama homeless.” Believe it or not, “a local English teacher decided to catalogue” the pastor’s likes on Facebook and then share them with the press. This motivated the local high schools to revoke the lease of the church. Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy of school district “leaders” and teachers who behave in this manner while crying out for tolerance and justice?

Destabilization with class warfare. Even though Rasmussen recently reported that there is a 40 percent approval rate for our president among black voters, if you listen to the secular media, you would think that it’s closer to 4 percent. Yes, racism runs deep in America, but only a changed heart can solve that. And keep in mind that revisionists began to rewrite history many years ago, portraying all white people as racists. The actual numbers are very small; the vast majority are not racists, and there are black racists too.

We realize that we are all Americans and must unite against our common enemy. “It’s a sin problem, not a skin problem.” White people feel the dynamic too. There are certain places in my community such as parks that I can no longer go for fear of being profiled because the media created a false narrative. You won’t find it in many of the modern history books, but the truth is that many of the Founding Fathers in America abhorred slavery and fought against it.

Destabilization fueled by the passive pulpit. I recently saw a survey on Facebook that asked: “Do you feel that most church leaders speak up about the real issues facing us today?” The overwhelming response was a very loud and clear “No!” Pastors, our people are looking to us to lead the way, but many of you are exchanging “truth for tolerance,” “boldness for balance,” and “conviction for cowardliness.” Many don’t want to offend for fear they might lose their audience.

Pastors, and Christian leaders alike, we must take responsibility for the spiritual health of our nation—and make no mistake, whether we accept that responsibility or not, God Himself will hold us accountable. The pulpit inevitably sets the tone of the religious climate of the nation. A culture void of God simply reflects the lack of conviction in the pulpit as well as the pew. The silent pulpit is not God’s pulpit. We must bend when needed, but not capitulate.

Destabilization because kingdoms are colliding. I believe that the next hammer to fall will be a spike in COVID-19—if the riots don’t accomplish their intended purpose. There is also a great deal going on behind the scenes with generals and other elected and unelected officials divided against President Trump. The real reason, in many cases, is because many of these people are holdovers from the last administration what is commonly referred to as the “Deep State.”

So of course they are upset and seeking to be divisive; it is a strategic play designed to protect themselves. Subpoenas are being served; crimes are being investigated; perversion is being exposed. This is why there is a huge upheaval. Kingdoms are colliding. All of this is a clear case of Romans 1. People are rejecting God and He is giving them over to a debased and corrupted mind. How else can they justify killing children while promoting deviant sexual behavior. There is no fear of God in the land.

What’s happening in America is called psychological warfare, and it may get worse before it gets better. The goal of some is to elevate stress to the point of exhaustion (stay at home) and then fuel fear so that people give up their rights (riots). To win the psychological battle (the battle of the mind), one must saturate their mind in the Word and ways of God. We need to look up at God and not look around at what is going on. Churches need prayer meetings and worship nights, even if it’s just a small group of people. God doesn’t look for huge crowds; He looks for broken hearts. America’s heart needs to break so that deep repentance takes place.

Yes, much of the chaos does have to do with Donald Trump’s re-election, but… do we really think that we can flood our homes with “porn; murder millions of children; satisfy the gods of alcohol, lust, and addiction; mock God’s Word; declare war on the family; excuse racism; promote self-centered politicians; and idolize celebrity pastors who tip-toe around sin and expect a wonderful life for our nation?”

No, we cannot. What also is coming down is an “ungodly” foundation. It seems that everyone is sensing the “destabilization” of America. Even billionaire Elon Musk recently commented, “We must get to Mars. Civilization isn’t looking all that stable here.”

Isaiah 30:1 sheds much-needed light on what is happening: “Woe to the rebellious children,” declares the LORD, “Who execute a plan, but not Mine, and make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, in order to add sin to sin.”

As in the prophet Joel’s day, today “joy has withered away from the sons of men” (Joel 1:12). Instead of complaining, we need to obey God, who says, “Consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord” (verse 14). In a sense, God is saying, “How bad do you want deliverance?” Will you turn to Me with all your heart? Will you starve the flesh in order to be filled with the Spirit via prayer and fasting? Will you humble yourself and repent?

If we do, we are reminded that God is merciful and slow to anger, but we must stop confusing His patience with His approval.
