False Science Tyranny

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on September 3, 2021 by andelino

“A lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science.” That is Dr. Anthony Fauci’s description of Dr. Anthony Fauci, from a June interview.

“Because all of the things that I have spoken about, consistently from the very beginning, have been fundamentally based on science. If you are trying to, you know, get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science.”

“Flip Flop” Anthony Fauci is an alumnus of the College of the Holy Cross and a doctor of Cornell University Medical College. He has received 50 honorary doctorates from universities in the United States and other countries.

According to a government website, he is the 132nd most-cited author of 992,000 authors in general and internal medicine, the 32nd most-cited living researcher, the 20th most-cited author of 2.4 million in the field of research and experimental medicine, the ninth most-cited author out of 2.5 million immunologists, a presenter of major lectures around the globe, and a recipient of the National Medal of Science, the George M. Kober Medal, the Mary Woodard Lasker Award, the Albany Medical Center Prize, the Robert Koch Gold Medal, the Prince Mahidol Award, the Canada Gairdner Global Health Award, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor awarded by the U.S. government. He is also the highest paid of all the government’s 2 million-plus employees.

By all these measures, “Flip Flop” Fauci is a success. This is why he has come to the forefront of the government in its response to the Covid-19 outbreak. And apparently, this is why he equates the field of scientific study to himself.

Yet well-paid, award-winning, extensively cited, doctor-times-50 “Flip Flop” Fauci is also the man who initially helped fund the Wuhan lab where Covid-19 originated, then opposed the lab-leak theory; who initially said the outbreak would likely remain minor, then promoted “15 days to slow the spread,” and later advocated unprecedented lockdowns for more than a year.

“Flip Flop” Fauci is the man who initially advised that masks were unnecessary, then claimed that he had been misleading people so that they would leave enough masks for health-care workers, and still later said that the effectiveness of “double masks was common sense.” He is the man now telling the world that he has spoken “consistently from the very beginning,” and at the same time, “evolved” his advice many times.

Some people advance through the educational, medical, political or other systems of our societies and become what we consider elite, wise, high-minded. Yet this does not immunize them from being wrong. The Apostle Paul wrote this about some people in his day: “Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:22). Look at the elites in the news today. Don’t these words apply to them?

The scientific community is probably the second-most-trusted institution in America, after the U.S. military. Only 20 percent of Americans say they trust the government, but 44 percent say they have a great deal of confidence in the scientific community.

Faith in scientific experts has remained steady for the past 50 years—even after the drastic Fauci-recommended, government-enforced, Covid-19 lockdown measures. A survey of more than 20,000 Americans conducted by Prof. David Lazer found that both Democrats and Republicans trusted scientists and doctors to handle the Covid-19 pandemic more than any other individual or institution, including state governments and the federal government.

This faith has remained despite repeated misjudgments by scientists and public health experts over the past two years that have demonstrated that they do not really know how to deal with this pandemic. Claiming their decisions were “backed by science,” health experts have recommended a labyrinth of contradictory rules and insisted on phenomenally oppressive measures that have shuttered businesses, devastated education, upended millions of lives, and created far more grievous problems than they have solved. This is to say nothing of the fact that scientists, including “Flip Flop” Fauci himself, almost certainly caused the pandemic.

One of “Flip Flop” Fauci’s many articles was published in 2012 by the American Society for Microbiology. There he explicitly wrote that “gain of function” research on bat corona viruses was worth the risk of a pandemic if it increases our knowledge of diseases. The government nevertheless banned “gain of function” research only two years later. But “Flip Flop” Fauci and his colleagues at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases found a loophole.

They now admit to U.S. lawmakers that, under Fauci’s guidance, the National Institute of Health earmarked $600,000 for the Wuhan Institute of Virology and funneled it to the Chinese lab through the nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance. This money was used to study whether bat corona viruses could be transmitted to humans. Now even leftists who recently scoffed at the lab leak as a conspiracy theory admit it is likely a fact.

If it is true that Covid-19 originated in a lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, then “Flip Flop” Fauci may have directly contributed to the development of the Covid-19 pandemic by funding this research.

Yet for many, their devotion is unshaken. Mask mandates, social-distancing measures, school closures, business lockdowns: Millions have submitted to and been subjected to these acts of “faith in Fauci.” Americans have taken on $6 trillion more in debt and sacrificed their economy before a priesthood of scientific experts for salvation from a pandemic that those experts likely caused!

There is no evidence that Covid-19 is substantially more contagious or deadly than a normal flu, which infects some 9 to 45 million Americans each year. There is no evidence that wearing a paper or cloth mask stops the spread of a 20-nanometer coronavirus particle. But scientists, flanked by leftist politicians and progressive media, pushed these drastic, catastrophic interventions with stunning self-assurance, quashing any dissenting concerns about the broader consequences.

Those broader consequences were colossal. In addition to the financial and economic disruptions, and the physical and mental health problems caused by compulsory social isolation, these lockdowns helped politicians push last-minute changes to mail-in ballot rules that helped throw the 2020 presidential election into chaos.

Is it a coincidence that the dire predictions pushed by scientific experts have had major political ramifications? Is it a coincidence that the solutions demanded by the press and the political left are massive socialistic interventions? Or is it more reasonable to think that the scientific community is just as fallible—even biased and politically motivated—as every other government institution?

Consider the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recent series of mixed messages about who should wear face masks. In early 2021, as more people were vaccinated, many wondered when mask mandates would be lifted. If the vaccine was as effective as the experts claimed, why wear the mask?

In May, the CDC revised its guidelines, prompting Joe Biden to announce, “If you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.” Just two months later, however, the science again changed. In July, the CDC discovered that vaccinated individuals could still contract, carry and spread Covid-19. Back to the masks! Are you following the science?

“Flip Flop” Fauci defended the CDC, saying they weren’t flip-flopping. “They’re dealing with new information that the science is providing,” he said. But on the day that the CDC reversed its mask-wearing guidance, they did not publish any new research. Even the Washington Post asked, “Where’s the data?”

After the CDC’s flip-flop, a reporter called out Joe Biden: “You said if you were fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.” Senile Biden’s response: “I didn’t say that.” Even when the experts are plainly wrong, they’re still right! To criticize them is to attack science and truth.

And the same week that the new CDC guidance came out—effectively showing that vaccines do not prevent people from contracting and spreading coronavirus—Joe Biden announced strict new measures cracking down on all unvaccinated federal workers. The contradictions are head-spinning. This pandemic is a massive and painful case study proving that Americans’ faith in the scientific community is misplaced. In reality, science stands exposed as a false messiah.

The Bible describes our situation perfectly. It prophesies of the society that would exist “in the last days.” It says that “There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” (2 Timothy 3:1-4). These verses apply to the “perilous times” of our generation.

This perfectly describes many of the educated elites behind the Covid-19 pandemic. God also inspired Paul to write this insightful admonition to his assistant: “Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith. Grace be with you all.” (1 Timothy 6:20-21).

The New King James Version translates verse 20, “avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge.” The Greek word for “science” in this verse is “gnosis”, which means knowledge. True science is true knowledge. Our Creator intends us to receive true education, engage in true scientific study, and acquire true knowledge about the creation around us.

But there is such a thing as science falsely so called. In fact, science falsely so called dominates our society. And in recent months, it is increasingly turning into a tyranny!

In these “last days” of human civilization, so called “scientists” assume the nonexistence of the Creator. They are almost all taught and trained to reject revelation from God and God’s Word and to deny God’s existence. This rejection of God is the very foundation of human knowledge production.

Scientists scorn the idea that creation came from a Creator and are thus compelled to devise explanations for how creation came about on its own. Ignoring and suppressing all evidence to the contrary, they accept as absolute fact the alternative faith of godless evolution.

Unable to support that theory with any of the proof they insist on in all other scientific inquiry, they contradict their own standards and the foundation for true science. Nevertheless, they thereby anoint themselves—along with their high-minded observations and reasoning’s—as the highest authority in the universe!

This is why science and academia are so prone to “godless, foolish discussions.” Scientists and other experts have knowledge, but much of it is false knowledge. It is filled with authoritative pronouncements that conflict with other statements of irrefutable fact. We are floating in a flood of information that is truth mixed with error, good mixed with evil.

Read what the Bible says about knowledge and so-called experts, and ask yourself if it doesn’t perfectly describe the intellectual arrogance motivating the authoritarian scientific regime increasingly dominating our society.

Paul wrote that “If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching,  they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.” (1 Timothy 6:3-5).

During Jesus Christ’s day, the governing elites were knowledgeable, highly acclaimed, wealthy and powerful. They even believed in God and devoted much of their lives to their religion. They excelled within that system. They gained status, respect and much more. Yet religious as they were, they were steeped in intellectual vanity. They and others supposed they were godly—yet when they encountered knowledge from the very Son of God, they wanted to destroy it and destroy Him!

In Mark 7:7-9, Christ said, “They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules. You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions. You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!”

In Matthew 11:24, Christ gave this shocking warning: “But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.” Intellectual vanity is more dangerous than the sexual sins of Sodom! These people were not Satan worshipers, as we usually think of the term, yet Jesus Christ told them to their faces, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44).

What a revealing statement! The devil doesn’t just inspire “satanic” people—he influences everyone. (2 Corinthians 4:4, Revelation 12:9) For someone like “Flip Flop” Fauci who excelled in the tradition of men, who holds 50 honorary degrees, it is easy to assume that he is like a god. That is how he can say, “I am science! I am the truth! while he deceives people who face a society-wide life-and-death situation.”

Our system of education is founded on this belief. It exalts knowledge and science falsely so called. It worships it as if it were a messiah! This is why, despite producing amazing advancements, it has also propagated egregious evils. Being smart and being good are two different things.

Many very intelligent people have done very evil things! They pioneered in deciding for themselves what is right and what is wrong, what is righteousness and what is sin!

And humanity has been doing what seems right in its own eyes ever since. And how did they do it? They 1) rejected revelation, 2) used observation, 3) used experimentation and 4) used human reason. And that is precisely the “scientific’ method used by modern science today!”

The false “scientific method” started with the first human beings! They rejected revelation from God and relied instead on their own five senses and human minds. This marked the foundation of the world as we know it! Human beings have continued to build civilization by rejecting God’s revealed truth and relying on observation, experimentation and human reasoning.

And what we have constructed is increasingly unstable and ready to collapse!

The biggest lie about COVID

Pork Infrastructure Bill

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 11, 2021 by andelino

Congress is clearing the decks in order to shove through a 2,700-page infrastructure bill that’s filled from stem to stern with amendments that have little to do with infrastructure and a lot to do with pork and tyranny.

Congress continues to spend like drunken sailors. If they’re successful in launching their $1+ trillion bill, it will be followed by more bills and more trillions of dollars wasted.

Less than two percent will be spent on “infrastructure.” A trillion here and a trillion there and pretty soon it adds up to real money.

Let’s hope their infrastructure bill dies upon launch. Otherwise, the ship of our Republic will follow the Titanic.

We will sink as a nation if we allow senile “Fraud-In-Chief” Biden to continue at the helm.

The New Infrastructure Bill seems to deal with pretty much anything but…

Corrupt Politicians

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 22, 2021 by andelino

After being slammed by corrupt government and media dealings for years, Americans are worn out, sick of it, and fed-up. Faith in Government and media is zero!

Prior to Bill Clinton, politicians left government to make their fortunes. Now, politicians flock into government to become powerful and wealthy! Isn’t this a perfect example of “ill-logic?”

The names of those entering government and leaving with massive amounts of money would fill many journals. How does it work? Isn’t this like “spending your way out of debt?” Instead of going into mind contortions, can’t we reasonably agree that “criminals” are now running government?

Corrupt Politicians are shamelessly stuffing their pockets with taxpayer money right before our eyes! In addition, corporate America is in government’s shady-deal rooms making their own deals to snuff out competition by killing small businesses.

To add insult to injuries, Judges have lost focus on their responsibilities and are writing more laws than Congress. Let’s not forget District Attorneys joining the lawless to make a mockery of our legal system. As the lawless train, winds through America, Mayors and Governors are jumping on board by self-elevating to Kings. All of these efforts serve to concoct a deadly addictive elixir that is quickly extinguishing America’s life.

Whereas Congress was once the barrier to protect Americans by ensuring law and order, they are now the chief instigators of corruption. When Congress can’t find ways to aid and abet corruption, then our courts take over and ensure corruption prevails. If this weren’t true, then why isn’t Congress impeaching all of the judges that knowingly conduct their business “outside” of the US and State Constitutions? Obviously, oaths of office have now become meaningless!

America was not conceived with royalty, special interests, or special genealogies in mind. We are a Constitutional Democratic Republic designed exclusively for and by “we the people” not “tyrants, rulers, or dictators.” Our Country thrives on a free market system with “freedom and liberty for all.”

Today, we find “tyrannical” Democrat Socialists stupidly pushing “we the people” up against the wall because they despise Judaeo-Christian values, freedom, and equal justice. Under our Judaeo-Christian value system, all people are protected equally.

With the socialist indoctrinated college students, Democrat Party members, and greedy Wall Street bankers controlling government that will all be found in the ditch after a major collision with facts. Facts are those little nasty details where “bullshit” stops and “truth” prevails.

Failing to reason blinds one’s reality of outcome. Lust for power and money is always a warning sign of dangers ahead. Such lusts always overlook what happens when innocent people have their backs against the wall and won’t take it any longer!

Outside of Government, we generally refer to these types of people, as “Bullies.” Bullies are always brave when they are in groups. However, when they are alone and confronted with reality, they are the first on their knees “praying, crying, assuming the fetal position, and asking for mercy.”

Decent people who respect and support law and order are not weaklings or cowards. Bullies soon discover law-abiding people eventually become a Hornet’s nest. It just takes a lot to get us in battle mode.

Unlike socialist Democrats, “we the people” will score transparent victories depicting good vs. evil confirming the power of God. Therefore, we do walk softly but carry a big stick. Since America’s formation, “we the people” have fought many battles to keep Old Glory waving. Why would we ever stop, now?

For all of the anti-American loud mouths let us give you some advice. You may want to stop barking, burning our flag, burning our cities, and physically attacking law-abiding citizens! God gives us two ears and one mouth for a reason… it’s time to shut up and listen before it’s too late.

The socialist Democrat’s “lawlessness, lies, deceit, and hatred must stop.” Bullies – even the Billionaire Class Rats – need to understand most Americans have been pushed as far as we will allow. We are not going to continue to suffer while narcissistic elitists eat cake, at our expense.

None of this tension or treason is necessary or warranted – if we understand God’s plan for our lives. While Bullies rely upon evil works, pro-Americans rely upon God. Millions of years ago, God knew there would be evil people willing to harm His children intentionally and he said, “But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” (James 4:6)

Good and decent people understand God’s promises and rely upon Him for our victories…

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4:4-9)

WE THE PEOPLE VS. CRIMINAL U.S. POLITICIANS

Mask Tyranny

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , on February 21, 2021 by andelino

Mask “guru” and social distancing expert Anthony Fauci is a low-information, scientifically ignorant and duplicitous person trying to be the voice of the COVID crisis.

He has “contradicted” himself repeatedly on his COVID guidance. In March, Fauci told 60 Minutes that masks should largely be “reserved” for healthcare providers.

In April, the recommendations were broadened to “include” simple masks for the general public.

In June, Fauci laughed at the idea of people “wearing” a mask, then 4 months later he “reversed” that position, claiming his statement was “taken out of context.” 

Here fake Anthony Fauci appears to get “vaccinated” on live television in his left arm, but then points to his right arm as the “injection” site afterwards.

Even low information scientist confuse left with right.

I’ve been going to the local gym for the last four weeks. Election season is always stressful, and Michigan winters are cold. Seeing how I work from home and all the restaurants in my state are closed due to our “tyrannical” governor, Gretchen Whitmer, exercising at the gym provides a much needed escape.

One of the gym’s requirements is that you have to wear a mask and wipe down the equipment after you’re done with it. I’m fine with that.

But every once in a while, when I’m running on the treadmill, rowing, or doing some other strenuous activity, my mask slips beneath my nose. I’m not the only one this happens to. I’d venture to say that at least half of my fellow gym-goers have their masks under their noses for an extended amount of time as well. Staff rarely, if ever, walk up to them and ask them to pull them up. They seem to be aware that people need to take deep breaths when performing intense workouts.

This past week, a guy has been “pestering” me about my mask not being over my nose. On multiple occasions, he’s walked over to me, breaking social distancing rules. One time, he asked me, while I was in the middle of a planking exercise where my hands were out in front of me on the floor, to pull it up. No “hello” or “hey, what’s your name?” Just a cold-hearted request for me to put the cloth on my face over my nose. Eventually, he told the front desk worker that I wasn’t following the rules.

These sorts of impersonal, hard-and-fast interactions, purportedly rooted in the “science” that masks make us safe, are becoming all too common in America. Every day I hear new horror stories about how someone at a store or a family outside at the park has been berated by a COVID “Karen” for not wearing a mask. The video below, which shows a guy yelling at a woman to “put your mask on,” has been making the rounds on social media as of late. It should send shivers down your spine.

“What is wrong with people?” pic.twitter.com/W8yY7z0sbo— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) December 15, 2020

There’s clearly some sort of shift happening to human beings at a “subconscious” level with all this mask-wearing. It’s complex, but here’s what I think is going on.

Firstly, wearing a mask is how you show that you’re “in the club.” Masks indicate that you’re “following the science” and that you’re a part of the majority and superior to those who don’t wear one. There’s a sort of collective “brainwashing” going on that’s teaching people to “hate” those who aren’t “in the club.”

Second, wearing a mask is a form of “virtue-signaling.” It shows we’re “doing our part” to help protect others. “It’s a sort of secular work of mercy, a pinch of incense, if you will, demanded by the state religion of liberalism.” 

But there’s another thing that masks do that’s equally repulsive: “they hide our faces.” Now, why does that matter? Because by not seeing other people’s faces, you can’t see anyone’s emotions. You can’t see, in other words, them smiling and laughing, two thing that make us uniquely human and are some of the most pleasurable things the human eye can observe.

Masks also “discourage” small talk and seem to disincline us from giving “compliments” to someone about their appearance. Moreover, they “disallow” us from flashing a smile to an overjoyed infant sitting in their mom’s shopping cart in the check-out lane. What a sad thing that we can’t smile back at happy children anymore.

Here is a photo of the “mandatory mask” rules on the House floor.

“The attending physician of the house has said that it is imperative for the health and safety of the people in this room that members wear masks.

I’ve been greatly lenient, however I will tell you now that anyone not wearing a mask will not be recognized to speak, period,” Nadler told the house members.

As far as I can tell, these masks are turning us into “trans-humanist robots.” They’re making us view and treat other people as “sub-humans”, as mere carriers of a “virus” to be avoided (even if you are virus free) and reported to authorities immediately instead of treating them as children of God whom we should interact with in a charitable way.

I’m not excited to go back to the gym soon again. I imagine I’ll be asked yet again to put my mask over my nose when it falls below it. If I am, I’ll comply as best as I can. But I’ll also respond with a kind “hello” and try to get to know the guy who’s been on my case the last few weeks.

Maybe we’ll have some things in common. Maybe we won’t. Either way, at least I’ll have tried to interact with him in a joyful, Christian, and human way.

Principles of Leftism

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on July 17, 2020 by andelino

How can a leftist believe the fundamental principles of leftism without contradicting other fundamental principles of leftism? For example: “Should you stay locked down at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus? Or should you join the crowds in the streets to protest systemic racism?”

Recent weeks have exposed a stunning “paradox.” They’re not as different as they seem. In fact, they’re two sides of the same “evil” coin.

First was an unprecedented exercise in “authoritarianism.” With covid-19 as a justification, governments implemented unprecedented authoritarian oppression, closing businesses, restricting travel, shutting down schools and churches, enforcing empty streets and public places, mandating social distancing and mask-wearing, imposing massive fines, and arresting people for such crimes as going to the beach. They invaded people’s privacy; they followed them with drones; they tracked their movements through cell-phone data.

They said this was needed for society to heal. Governors and other officials flexed their muscles, talked like dictators, and showed people who was boss. They spoke the language of law and order; they directed that all people do exactly as they were told. They replaced constitutional rights with their own directives. Their word was the law. Anyone who violated it was ignorant, irresponsible, anti-science, lawless and dangerous.

Then suddenly came an unprecedented exercise in “anarchy.” These same people turned on a dime. They told us that since George Floyd was killed, it was imperative not to respect the law, but to defy the law. It was not time to comply with every detail of every absurd, confusing, conflicting government directive. It was time to rise up in protest, in anger, in violence against even the most basic, fair, uncontroversial laws. Mobs moved in great throngs to smash windows, loot businesses, burn cars, attack police, destroy cities and create mayhem, and law enforcement was ordered to back down.

The same police who had been told to stringently enforce quarantine measures against citizens who committed crimes of walking down the street or failing to wear face masks or visiting family members were now told to stand down and watch as citizens committed crimes of rioting, vandalism, arson, robbery and assault.

For weeks people have been permitted to hold a miniature insurrection controlling several city blocks in Seattle. As anarchy has reigned, government officials are explaining to us how this is all justified, appropriate and necessary. They say this is what is needed for society to heal. They actually say the need for violent protest outweighs the need for containing covid-19.

Just days before, containing this virus was worth shutting down entire sections of the national economy. But overnight, the opposite was true: “Containing this virus was not worth shutting down these destructive, lawless protests. Peaceful economic activity had to stop, violent subversive activity could proceed.”

At the snap of a finger, the “authoritarians” turned into “anarchists.” It makes your head spin. How is this possible? How does the same mind harbor these two seemingly “contradictory” convictions? How can the left in America simultaneously believe in “tyranny and rebellion, in totalitarianism and revolution?” 

There’s no longer a question about that. And yet, at the same time, they desperately want to control America more than anything, and that leads to the most basic of all questions: “Can you really lead a country that you hate?”

 

This is an important question, because what has happened here actually reveals a lot about the nature of American leftists. What seems like a paradox is actually quite consistent.

In some ways, “authoritarianism and anarchy are two sides of the same coin.” To truly grasp what is happening and what a threat our nation is under, you have to understand a few things about God.

God created human beings. He created us for a marvelous purpose, with an incredible potential. He gave us intellectual ability and creative capacity that He did not give to animals. He gave us emotion, relationships with others, love, a sense of morality, of right and wrong. He created us to learn to think, plan, design, produce and even create as He does! And He has thrilling, exciting plans for our future.

To help us grow in our capacity, our capability, our responsibility, our character, He gave us dominion over the material world. This gives us opportunity to learn how to build and care for things. He created marriage and family to teach us how to care for others, to develop teamwork and unity, selflessness and sacrifice. He also gave His law, governing our relationships within family and in society, and even how we take care of the Earth and material things. He created an economic system based around private property ownership to teach us opportunity and accountability, stewardship and hard work, industry and creativity, and voluntary charity toward our neighbors.

Our Creator wants to help us grow up. By being accountable for our own choices, we learn to strive for excellence, to grow in duty, authority and capacity to help others. He wants us to live productive, noble lives, where we build strong families, prosperity, right ambition, strong moral fiber and solid character. As we do that, we are preparing for the wonderful future He has in store for us. God is a God of freedom. He wants people to be free to fulfill our fullest potential.

This truth about God is beautifully expressed in America’s Declaration of Independence: “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” 

In modern times, God has used America to give more freedom and prosperity to more people than anyplace else in history, people of every race, color and creed, it should be noted. This is something that all of us in these nations should be extremely grateful for. With the Creator’s goals and purposes in mind, turn your attention again to the two seemingly contradictory trends at work right now in this country. Do you see the common denominator? Both strip people of the freedoms God gave us. Both prevent people from fulfilling their God-given potential.

First let’s talk about “anarchy.” It is clear how the people running around destroying everything are enemies of civilization. They indiscriminately tear down what others have painstakingly built. They do not know how to build, only how to destroy. There is nothing positive or uplifting or godly about this force. It plays to the worst in human beings: “It is antithetical to reason; it is fueled by anger and hatred.” To whatever degree this force actually succeeds in toppling the existing order, it is incapable of replacing it with anything better and will leave only ruin in its wake.

History shows that civilization is actually a fragile thing. It is always threatened by the forces of barbarism. God wants to keep these forces in check in order to guarantee people’s rights and to help us attain our potential. One tool He uses to do that is the national governments He has allowed human beings to form. These governments keep the barbarians at bay. We should be thankful for that and pay heed to those authorities.

The Apostle Paul writes about this in Romans 13. He says in verse 1 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” That is an extraordinary statement. In Daniel 4:32 we read “You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like the ox. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes.” The Bible shows that this is not God’s world, it is actually governed by Satan the devil. But even though God does not directly govern, He does rule! He is involved in choosing who rules over other men.

“Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” (Romans 13:2) Paul calls the authority of human governments “the ordinance of God”! This is what holds society together.

“For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.” (verses 3-4). God wants these governments in place! Society without government is chaos. If there were no government, this world would look like “Lord of the Flies.”

Anarchy seems like the ultimate freedom. But in reality, it is the opposite, because there is no structure in place to protect freedom, to secure it and defend it. The strong do what they will at the expense of the weak. “So the prime task of government is to establish order, organized central force is the sole alternative to incalculable and disruptive force in private hands” wrote Will and Ariel Durant in “The Lessons of History”.

Thus, this passage in Romans 13:6-7 tells us to be subject to those authorities, “This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.” God’s Church and true Christians set an example in this, even in response to the covid-19 massive government overreach. We proclaim the truth about what is actually behind those directives, but we also submit to them as long as they do not conflict with obeying God.

Have you thought about government officials being God’s ministers? Obviously they govern quite imperfectly. But imperfect government is better than no government. The forces of “anarchy” aim to undermine God’s plan and debase human beings, denying them the blessings of an ordered society that enables all people, of every color, old and young, strong and weak, great and small, to thrive. It is fundamentally an anti-God movement and force.

Authoritarianism looks like the opposite of anarchy, but its fundamental goals are the same. And in most cases, authoritarians use “anarchy and chaos” as a tool to impose their authority.

Everything God seeks to accomplish in the lives of human beings, authoritarians work to dismantle. God encourages freedom within His moral law, true liberty that comes from strong individual character. Authoritarians often encourage moral license, permitting all sorts of immorality that debase individuals, fragment families and destroy lives. But such behavior destroys true freedom. As Jesus Christ said in John 8:34 “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.”

The weaker the families are, the more they need to rely on the government for support. Authoritarians encourage “dependency”. They always tend toward socialistic and communistic practices, taking decision-making power away from individuals and families and transferring it to government officials. As governments take people’s wealth and redistribute it as they please, this inevitably suppresses people’s personal motivation and ambition. It strips people of responsibility and makes them shiftless and idle. Rather than striving for excellence, people settle into self-satisfaction and mediocrity.

And the bureaucratic process of redistributing wealth always costs a lot of wealth, which causes the overall standard of living to drop. It also kills off the opportunity and desire to demonstrate individual charity. The government takes care of the poor and it’s taking your money to do it. There is nothing voluntary about it. And when the poor receive such charity, rather than feeling gratitude, they feel entitled, and get very agitated and angry if anything interrupts the flow of those benefits.

By contrast, God encourages private property ownership and thereby industry and stewardship. This prepares man for ever greater capacity, duty and authority. It also obliges people to be accountable for their choices. But socialist government insulates people from the consequences of bad decisions. It robs people of their individual dignity and turns them into wards of the state.

For example. What’s a CNN host to do when confronted with a guest who doesn’t accept “The Narrative?” In the case of Don Lemon interviewing former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, the answer is: tell him to “keep it down, refuse to listen to what he is saying, and then abruptly cut him off.” It’s not as if they are interested in anything that doesn’t support the n

arrative. Much less explodes it with data on cops being killed.

At heart, authoritarians aim to put themselves in place of God. They want people looking to them instead of to God. The more authoritarian the leader, the more he creates a kind of religion of the state. On top of that, the greater the role the government plays in people’s lives, the more power it has to trample economic and social freedoms. Which is exactly what it inevitably does. This is all exactly the opposite of what God wants for us.

And that exposes the true nature of this two-headed monster, this movement that is somehow simultaneously anarchic and authoritarian. Leftists embrace both tendencies because both express the same satanic impulse to destroy people, strip them of freedom, and prevent them from growing, building and creating as God intends. Satan always comes as an angel of light and couches everything he does in marvelous language about social justice, equality and compassion. But at its core, this movement is anti-God. It is against God and destructive of God’s plan for human beings.

The better you come to know God, the easier it is to recognize a counterfeit like the one taking over our nations.

Government Tyranny

Public Servants Have Become Petty Tyrants
By Rep. Tom McClintock

Congressman Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) represents California’s 4th Congressional District.

Quarantine is the forced confinement of a person who has contracted or been exposed to an infectious disease.

Although it is a long-standing police power of governments, it is seldom used because it is seldom-needed – sick people generally stay home on their own. When it must be used, it is subject to due process: the right to contest the order in court, to present evidence that the order is invalid, and to have it vacated.

What is happening today is radically different and profoundly UN-American: the indefinite and indiscriminate home detention without due process of perfectly healthy people on the pretext that they might catch a contagious disease. While it is true that some people may be infectious without knowing it, that’s no different than a wide variety of other contagious diseases that have been with us for generations and that are far more lethal than COVID-19.

Although some local jurisdictions prohibited large public gatherings during the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918, never before has any American government attempted to confine an entire population in its homes, order the mass shuttering of businesses, and deliberately plunge tens of millions of Americans into unemployment, poverty, and despair.

This new power, asserted in increasingly arbitrary and aggressive manners by public servants-turned-masters, is antithetical to our First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and our Fifth Amendment right to not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The courts recognize some restrictions of these rights, but only by the least restrictive means,” not arbitrary and unreasonable edicts.

In California, this abusive power has been used to deny citizens the right to protest the abuse itself. In North Carolina, the Raleigh Police Department declared, “Protesting is a non-essential activity.” In Pennsylvania, police fined a woman $200 for taking a solitary drive in her own car. A San Diego woman is threatened with a $1,000 fine and jail-time for participating in a protest. Ironically, while law-abiding citizens are arrested for exercising rights guaranteed under their Bill of Rights, authorities are releasing thousands of criminals from prisons and in California, forbidding sheriffs from holding a wide class of criminal suspects, including burglars.

The greatest threat of this newly asserted power is to alter fundamentally the relationship between Americans and their government. It is the age-old question that Cecil B. DeMille framed in his introduction to “The Ten Commandments.” “Are men the property of the state, or are they free souls under God?” 

Every time we step outside our homes, the risks we face multiply. A free society assumes that its citizens are competent to assess those risks, balance them against the avoidance costs, and to manage their decisions in a generally responsible way. It’s called common sense, and is a necessary prerequisite for self-government and liberty.

When a risk presents itself, people naturally change their behavior. If they believe the risk of leaving their houses is too great, they are free to stay at home. If they believe venturing beyond their front doors is a manageable risk, they are free to venture into the world, taking those precautions that to them seem most prudent.

In an epidemic, their assessments of risk might convince them to avoid crowded theaters or restaurants, wash their hands more frequently, avoid handshakes, wear masks, or become hermits. These acts don’t require force and don’t make demands on others. They are a matter of individual judgment and choice.

The choice of an octogenarian with emphysema in New York City might be very different from a healthy college student in Iowa. Only a fool would claim the omniscience to make an informed judgment for every person in every circumstance in every community. Sadly, the crisis has revealed that fools abound in public office and that a fool with power can quickly become a petty tyrant.

In this pandemic, many elected officials have abandoned the practices of a free society and crossed some very bright lines that separate free Americans from those unfortunate to live under authoritarian regimes. Communist China pioneered the practices now inflicted on our own citizens. That should scream a warning to us all.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice.

On the other hand, West Virginia’s Gov. Jim Justice is seeing it a little different and was being credited for “spicing” things up when he dropped an “F-bomb” into the mix.

“I encourage all businesses that are allowed to open to do so only if they fucking follow the guidelines to keep West Virginians safe,” Justice can be heard saying during a recorded press conference.

Here is the original video and Jim’s laughable apology…

Not to be left behind, beloved “tyrant” Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer was freaking out about Asian Murder Hornets

When asked about the utility of such suits, considering that the hornets are able to sting through them, Gretchen calmly pointed out that the questioner was obviously a “racist Nazi” who wanted citizens of Michigan to die.

Guerrilla Warfare

Domestic Terrorists 04In an extraordinary bureaucratic “misunderstanding” by Senate Majority “Guerrilla Warfare” Leader Harry Reid’s statement about “Domestic Terrorists” refusing to pay overdue debts to the Federal Government he “ordered” SWAT teams to surround the IRS Headquarters where he used a “bullhorn” to command all IRS employees owning back taxes “to come ought with their hands up and their wallets open.”

The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in “bonuses” to employees with recent “disciplinary” problems, including $1 million to “workers” who “owed back taxes”, a government investigator reported.

More than 2,800 workers got “bonuses” despite facing a “disciplinary” action in the previous year, including 1,150 who “owed back taxes”, said a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.

The bonuses were “awarded” from October 2010 through December 2012.

IRS 02

After the SWAT team “confrontation” Guerrilla Warfare Leader Harry Reid told the “terrified” IRS employees who still “owed” back taxes, “Go back to work, and don’t sweat the small stuff like overdue taxes “you’ll still get your Excellent Work Bonuses.”

IRS 03

Next, he “commanded” the BLM SWAT team to “get your asses back to Nevada and confiscate everything owned by that domestic terrorist Rancher Clive Bundy in Bunkerville, NV with overdue cattle grazing fees.”

IRS 04

A “misguided” reporter on the scene asked Guerrilla Warfare Leader Reid, “But what about ‘civil disobedience’?”

Reid responded, “Isn’t the distinction obvious? The accepted definition of ‘civil disobedience’ is when anti-capitalist groups such as ‘Occupy Wall Street’ break the law and not when terroristic tea baggers break the law.”

Tyranny to Victory

Ukrainian Revolution

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2014 by andelino

Ukrainian Revolution 00The Ukrainian people are finally tasting “Freedom” even as America slips deeper into “Communism.”

I can only “imagine” what people must be feeling and I hope that Putin will keep “his hands off of the Ukraine” in the days to come.

A great quote from Thomas Jefferson sums up it up quite nicely: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”  

The price of liberty is “eternal vigilance” and they’re off to a wonderful start which hopefully never ends.

The resistance that is happening is “exciting and inspiring.” To see Ukrainian people “shake off” tyranny while at the same time seeing people in America “embrace” tyranny makes me fearful for the future.

Ukrainian Revolution 03

What does it say for America when Ukraine has to teach Americans the “value of freedom” and the “costs of tyranny?”

Perhaps tyranny is something we must first “experience” ourselves in order to “appreciate” what it’s like to not be in its grasp.

Want the “truth” of what is going on in the Ukraine? Listen to author, artist and historian Oleg Atbashian. He appears at 8:10 in the video below:

There will be “challenging” times lie ahead for Ukraine. The “resistance” was uplifting to behold. Some have criticized the activists as merely fighting over “which master to serve” without any consideration for the “bloody history” of domination exerted by Russia over Ukraine.

These same people sit on their hands as “tyrants” take hold of their country. I say to them at least the Ukrainians fight. Even if the “despots” return they will always have to think “twice” because of this uprising.

The lives lost in “revolutions” are becoming fewer and fewer. Technology is advancing at such a rapid pace that the primacy of the “individual man” cannot be resisted by the State for much longer.

Ukrainian Revolution 05

We will “face” the same challenges before “too long” here in the United States and what has “happened” in Ukraine is encouraging.

My thoughts and prayers are with those in the Ukraine and the families of the “martyrs.” It reminds me of words spoken November 19, 1863 after a victory, which can also be applied here:

“But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate — we cannot consecrate — we cannot allow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Another blow has been struck. The “fire of freedom” sometimes smolders but somehow can never seem to be “extinguish” completely. Let their “martyrs have not fallen in vain.”

Ukrainian Revolution 02

And let us not forget to heap our “disdain and disapproval” on Barack Obama and John Kerry for their “inability” to see and understand the problem, their “blindness” in envisioning a solution to the problem and their “weak” leadership in implementing a “peaceful” solution to the problem in the Ukraine.

“This is an act of aggression …. It’s really 19th-century behavior in the 21st century. … You just don’t invade another country …” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said (Meet the Press, March 2).

Although it drips with “arrogance and ignorance,” which makes it easy to discard in frustration, there is enormous “value” in Kerry’s remark. It’s valuable for the profound “insight” it furnishes into the worldview of America’s leaders and the “fatal mentality” at the heart of America’s foreign policy.

The arrogance stems from the “supplanting of fact with personal opinion.” Russian President Vladimir Putin, in the hours and days prior to John Kerry’s statement, showed that “indeed you can in the 21st century behave in 19th-century fashion.” But that didn’t matter.

Ukrainian Revolution 04

Instead of being “rooted” in evidence, historical or scientific, the “truthfulness” of Kerry’s remark derives from the eloquence and confidence with which it is delivered, and most importantly, the authority of the source. It was quintessential Obama administration: “This is the truth because I say it’s the truth.”

Then there’s the obvious “ignorance”, both of the nature of this crisis and the character and strategy of Vladimir Putin. But, most fundamentally, of human nature.”

The Obama administration apparently believes that “because we live in the 21st century, because our leaders have Ph.D.’s and were educated at Oxford and Yale, because the world is highly globalized and our leaders engage in erudite diplomacy, because human civilization is more sophisticated and advanced,” that we have evolved beyond the era of invasions and wars.

“This is the 21st century,” they seem to reason, “we’re too smart, too progressive, to invade nations and start wars.”

It’s a pleasant thought, and one we all wish was true. But it ignores a basic reality: “The 21st-century human heart is exactly the same as the 19th-century human heart, and the 10th-century human heart, and the 1st-century human heart. It’s true that 21st-century man is smarter (at least in the sense that we have more knowledge), is more sophisticated (or at least it seems), and has better technology. But our added intelligence and sophistication comes with a handicap.”

It has “blinded” us to the fact that our “human nature” remains the same!

Ukrainian Revolution 01

I love pictures over words… which may show us what “we are in for” as we approach the glorious fulfillment of our own revolution of “Next Tuesday.”

“We don’t need a head of state who draws phony red lines with a pink crayon.” Lt. Col. Oliver North
