Two Masters Update Feb. 12th, 2012


     I don’t know if the last decade will ever be completely behind me. There are parts of it that were necessary to change both my understanding, and direction. That, I can accept. The things that I can not excuse, remain. Learning from those experiences does not add value to the specific activities. Learning does bring me principled conviction.  Today, I can describe that resolve. Yesterday, I couldn’t.

Separation of Bureaucracy and Humanity 7/12/2011


     These days, we have so many influences bringing out glaring contrasts between Bureaucracy and Humanity. The hot spot today is the Federal Budget debate. This is nothing new. We’ve been watching people threaten each other with poverty since forever. It is during these bouts of confusing numbers and inflammatory ultimatums that we are reminded that turning on floodlights in a crowded bar, at midnight, can expose a lot of surprises.  

     It is in the contrasts, brought out it all their naked glory, that we see the behavior that causes us to cringe at admitting that we are associated with any of this mockery of all things American. Yet, we need this. We need to understand that Bureaucracy is anti-human. It is cannibalistic. Even in it’s most commercial context, it is impossible to find any compassion or grace for the behavior of Bureaucracy. Something happens to people when they gain auspicious titles and put on a suit and tie. In reality, they are no less human. They just act as predatory animals.

     There is one thing that we can be sure of. Those who gain by this unreasonable facsimile of a reality show called government will not be found in line when the inevitable next step down in the currency collapse is taken. None will admit complicity in the Ponzi scheme that is the Federal Reserve. There won’t be a deal good enough to persuade the world to buy U. S. Treasury debt. The situation will become institutional looting and piracy.

     This is the point when the masks come off and the wolves devour the sheep. The turmoil and protest in other countries will be seen in the United States. Bureaucracy believes that it is a law unto itself. The human common sense response would be to admit that there is a higher court than any institution of Man. But then, Bureaucracy ate of the forbidden fruit and bought into the original lie, long ago. No, the men of renown have not become gods, and their pride is going before destruction.

What Difference Does It Make?


What Difference Does It Make?

What difference does it make? That’s the 64 Amero question. If you have a secure supply of drinking water, long term storage food to last a few years, and have the rest of the list of basic necessities, what happens next shouldn’t mean much. Being outside the large cities would be a good idea. It’s just easier to avoid problems, that way. Individuals can be known much better than crowds.

Understanding that government turns populations into refugees better than any other organization in the history of the world, would help you avoid, as Arlo Guthrie put it, being detected, inspected, injected and infected. Read everything you can about the history of crisis management. At least you would have an idea about how things work at your friendly local neighborhood Guantanamo, should you end up in such a place. If you are at all, historically and traditionally American in your thinking, you are probably labeled a potential terrorist. The Corporatist animosity toward all things American are very well documented. Congress isn’t on the ‘A’- list, and I doubt that I, you or anyone we know is in that privileged class.

Everything comes down to being in the right place, at the right time. That is the difference that the times we are in, makes. Beyond what an individual can carry, there isn’t much worth having, if it isn’t immediately accessible. Everyone should examine their far-flung, personal little empires. When the bureaucracy turns cannibal on itself, don’t go swimming with the sharks. Always a survivor, never a refugee.


One Hour Meltdown


                        One Hour Meltdown

Rev. 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

Below is an article on the mechanics of how this prophecy will be fulfilled in America by a professional engineer. Worth the time to read.

The One-Hour Meltdown
Copyright © July 22, 2009 by Robert Wayne Atkins, P.E.

——————————————————————————–

Introduction
The following is just my opinion. It is nothing more than my opinion. I have nothing to substantiate or prove any aspect of my opinion. My opinion is simply the logical conclusion of a law-abiding sixty-year old Christian grandfather who has both an engineering degree and an M.B.A. degree and who has seen both good times and hard times during his life.

The Current Situation:

At the present time every nation in the entire world is facing serious financial and social stress. If only a few nations were involved then it might be possible to contain the upcoming meltdown to a few specific geographical areas. This has been successfully done in the past. However, since the entire world is currently on the edge of the cliff, when the meltdown begins it will impact almost everyone on the face of the earth.

Unless God chooses to intervene, the meltdown is no longer avoidable. Our governments and our financial institutions are no longer in control. However, to keep the system working just a little longer they must maintain the illusion that they have the system under control. But the system is broken and it can’t be fixed.

There are two reasons why the system can’t be fixed:

It has grown beyond its own capacity to support itself.

It has become so complex that no one can do anything significant to fix it because it is hemorrhaging in too many different places.

The average person in every nation on the face of the earth knows the meltdown is coming. The wealthy people know it. The poor people know it. Nobody wants it to happen. But almost everyone is just patiently waiting for it to begin and at the same time hoping that it doesn’t begin too soon.

Nobody knows when the meltdown will actually start. It may begin one-month from now. Or a year from now. Or three-years from now.

But almost everyone knows that at some future date the meltdown will occur.

This widespread knowledge of the impending disaster is the reason that when the disaster begins it will quickly and completely spiral out-of-control in one-hour or less. In my opinion, most people do not seriously believe it could happen this quickly. Most people expect a more gradual meltdown. They may be right because nobody can predict the future, and that includes myself.

——————————————————————————–

The One-Hour Meltdown
However, my personal opinion is that once the meltdown begins then in less than one-hour it will quickly escalate far beyond anyone’s ability to control or manage it on a worldwide basis. The five basic assumptions that cause me to believe in my “one-hour meltdown theory” are as follows:

Banks: The financial institutions around the world cannot withstand a full-scale worldwide bank run. Therefore, they have already made plans to immediately shut down the instant they are told to do so. Within minutes, all across the globe, all the ATM machines will be offline, all credit card and debit card verification transactions will be halted, and all banks will have their vaults locked and their doors locked and their building emptied of all personnel, except perhaps for some special security guards. All high-level bank executives will immediately disappear to a wide variety of remote safe unknown locations. All telephone call inquiries to any of the financial institutions will be automatically answered by a computer with a pre-recorded message similar to the following: “Our system is currently experiencing an extremely high call volume and therefore we are unable to answer your call at this time. Please try again later when our call volume returns to normal.”

Governments: The vast majority of our government leaders all over the world are relatively intelligent individuals. They completely understand the ramifications of a “bank holiday” in our computer controlled financial economy. Therefore, all government offices will also be immediately shut down, and they will empty their buildings and lock their doors. Any transaction in progress, including any trials in progress, will be immediately halted and postponed until some future date. All high-level government officials, including all judges and tax officials, will immediately disappear to a wide variety of remote safe unknown locations.

Retail Businesses: Since they will be unable to process even simple transactions, all retail establishments, both large and small, will immediately lock their doors to prevent anyone else from entering. If possible, they will complete any transactions for customers already inside their building if those customers have enough cash to pay for their purchases. Any customers wishing to pay by check or credit card or debit card will be told that the verification system is down and their transaction can’t be completed. All customers will then be immediately escorted to the doors and the doors will be briefly opened and then immediately locked after they exit. In addition, in a manner similar to what happened during the World Trade Center meltdown, each store’s management may demand that their employees remain at their stations until further notice or they will lose their jobs for leaving without management’s permission. But most of the more intelligent employees will leave at the same time as the store’s last few remaining customers. The store’s special security guards may or may not remain behind in order to protect the store with their lives. Since most of these special security guards are not paid exceptionally well, a large number of them may decide that they should return home and protect their own families instead.

Criminals: Anyone and everyone who has any criminal tendencies and who has been patiently waiting for this to happen will immediately see it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve their financial situation. More than likely the vast majority of these criminals have already made very detailed plans that includes exactly which businesses they are going to rob first, second, third, and so on. Any business with a reasonable level of cash-on-hand will be very high on every criminal’s list. Every jewelry store and pawn shop that has any type of silver or gold jewelry, or precious stones (diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc.), will be very high on everyone’s list. The warfare that breaks out at these establishments between competing criminals will not be pleasant.

Normal People: Normal average people will begin looting. Grocery stores will be broken into and they will be completely emptied from wall-to-wall, including the rear storage area, in less than one-hour. Stores that have firearms, ammunition, appliances, clothing, shoes, or anything else needed by the average citizen will be emptied in less than one-hour. In skirmishes over the few remaining resources, normal average people will begin killing one another inside the stores, and in the parking lots outside the stores, and on the streets as these fully loaded vehicles try to escape with their loot.

The above events will all happen simultaneously during the first one-hour of the meltdown. After that first hour has passed, things will really begin to get nasty. Everyone will quickly realize there are not are not enough law enforcement personnel to protect everyone and everything. Although the military will probably be ordered to protect specific high priority establishments and resources, there will simply not be enough military personnel to protect individual civilians or businesses.

——————————————————————————–

Events After the One-Hour Meltdown
Almost everyone who has lost their jobs, their vehicles, their homes, and their life savings will now have nothing more to lose by seeking some form of retribution against the society that took everything away from them that they once “partially” owned.

Anyone who has received a minor speeding ticket in the recent past and who honestly could not afford the fine will be in a very unpleasant mood. Everyone who has had their property taxes increased at the same time their income decreased will not be in a good mood. Everyone who has had their credit card interest rate increased at the same time their employer was reducing the number of hours they worked each week will not be in a good mood. Everyone who has been reduced from a two-family income down to a one-family income will not be in a good mood. Everyone who lost their job because their employer went bankrupt will not be in a good mood.

The vast majority of these individuals will have been just barely surviving in a situation where they were living hand-to-mouth on government welfare or the charity of the local community (unemployment checks, welfare checks, food stamps, food pantries, etc.). The instant they realize there will be no more government welfare or charity, then these individuals will have no hope for survival unless they are able to immediately acquire the food and other resources they need before it is all gone. Anyone who tries to stand in their way, or who tries to reason with them, will have a life expectancy of less than three-seconds.

After the stores are all emptied, and there is nothing else to be stolen, the tempers of the individuals who were not successful in obtaining what they needed will turn violent. When that happens they will form into huge mobs without being asked to. And they will begin seeking vengeance on anyone or any establishment they have a grudge against. Banks, and government buildings, and courthouses will be burned to the ground. Anyone still inside those buildings will probably be shot or hanged. Then these mobs will start looking for the high-ranking officials that they believe are the source of their misery. But the vast majority of these high-ranking officials will have already disappeared to safe places unknown to anyone but themselves.

If you have not previously thought about the above, or if you are not intellectually prepared to deal with it, then the chances are not very good for your long-term survival.

If you have been waiting to buy a really critical item for your family’s long-term self-sufficiency because you thought you could buy it at the very beginning of a slow gradual breakdown of society, then it will no longer be available. Your family will have to try to survive without that item, if that is possible. Since the vast majority of us have very limited financial resources it would be helpful if you could prioritize your purchases right now before it is too late. The following article on my web site describes how this could be done:

Realistic Self-Sufficiency: The Do’s and the Don’ts.

If the meltdown begins while you are away from home then your highest priority should be to collect the other members of your family and return home. Do not be tempted to participate in the looting. Regardless of what you think you might need, it would be foolish to risk your life and the lives of your family members at any store or business that is being looted. You should consider yourself “blessed” if you are successful at making it safely home with all your loved ones.

In my opinion, after the meltdown begins it will take about 24-hours for the vast majority of the criminals and the looters to self-destruct to at least one-half of their original number. In fact, human greed will probably reduce their numbers by a lot more than 50%. The reason this will happen is because every criminal will want whatever the other criminal has in his or her possession and he or she will probably be willing to kill to get it. The criminals and looters that survive will be the more ruthless and savage members of our society and they will gradually form into small gangs for protection and for their own mutual survival. When that happens things will just continue to get worse.

If you live close to the outside edge of a heavily populated area, and you can quickly and easily get onto a good road or interstate leading away from the danger area, and if you have a safe destination already planned, and if travel to that destination does not take you through another heavily populated area, then it may be possible for you to escape to your “retreat” if you act immediately and you do not hesitate.

However, if you live inside a heavily populated area, or if you are a good distance from a safe exit road or interstate, or if you do not have a safe destination to travel to, then loading your family into your vehicle and trying to drive anywhere at this time would probably not be a very good idea. In this situation, when the meltdown begins your best chance for survival will probably be to wait out the worst part of the meltdown inside your home. You should also be prepared to defend your home and your family during this difficult transition period.

I fully realize that the above suggestion goes against almost everyone’s recommended strategy of “getting out of Dodge” (G.O.O.D) at the last minute. You are an adult and you will need to make your own decision in this matter. But before you decide, perhaps you should thoughtfully consider your chances for long-term survival in each of the following two scenarios:

Your family is trapped inside your vehicle in a traffic jam that is grid-locked and, although you don’t know it yet, the cars in front of you and behind you are not going to move one-inch for the next several years. You and your family members quickly become physically and emotionally fatigued by the long wait inside your vehicle. Everyone needs to use the bathroom. Nobody can get any real rest. And as you watch one horror story after another unfold outside the windows of your vehicle you become terrified that you will not live to see another day. You are trapped inside your vehicle many, many miles from your home and travel in any direction by foot or by bicycle at this time would be suicidal.

Your family is temporarily trapped inside your home with whatever resources you have in your home. You can still use the bathroom in the privacy of your own home. You can still eat and drink in safety. Each member of your family can sleep in his or her own bed while one or more members of your family remains awake and on guard duty. On some future date, after your family has eaten a good meal and everyone is completely rested and mentally and physically alert, then perhaps on a dark rainy night your family will be able to escape by riding bicycles or by walking out of the danger zone to some safe remote place where you already have supplies pre-positioned and waiting for you.

In my opinion, neither of the above two scenarios is a pleasant one to think about. But if I had to choose between them I would select the second option.

——————————————————————————–

Three Questions
Please allow me to ask you the following three questions:

How many people do you personally know who do not need to eat?

Where does most of the meat, bread, fruit, and vegetables that are consumed by the people inside a city actually come from?

If food deliveries into the city were stopped, how long would the city continue to be a safe place to live?

If you are satisfied with your answers to the above three questions and you still want to live in a big city then you should continue to do so. However, if you are not satisfied with your answers to the above three questions, then perhaps right now would be a good time to think about some other options for your family’s survival.

——————————————————————————–

Some Good News
Before you completely loose heart, please allow me to share some really good news with you. The meltdown hasn’t started yet. You still have time to significantly improve your family’s chances of surviving the upcoming meltdown.

Have you lost your job? That is good news. You can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

Has the bank foreclosed on your home? That is good news. You can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

Are you now living inside your vehicle? That is good news. If you can come up with some gas money then your can now relocate to a more lightly populated area.

You don’t need to move to the unexplored wilderness in Alaska. You don’t need to move into the heart of the Arizona desert. You just need to relocate to an area that is more lightly populated than a big city. The area you select should meet the following minimum criteria:

It is not on a major freeway or interstate.

It is at least several hundred feet above sea level.

It is surrounded by farm land, dairy cows, and other typical farm livestock such as horses, pigs, sheep, goats, and chickens.

It has a history of good average rainfall (not too much rain or too little rain).

It has a reasonable supply of trees and forest timber land.

It has a few nearby manufacturing facilities of any size.

Its residents still have the right to own firearms to protect themselves.

It has short mild winters.

You are smart. You could probably find a place like the above that is somewhere between 60 to 600 miles of where you currently live. When you get there, start looking for a new job.

At the current time good jobs are exceptionally difficult to find. Therefore, if you still have a really good job, then you would probably be better advised to keep your current job. But you could still move your loved ones to a small safe farming community that is at least 30 miles away from any heavily populated area, and which meets the first seven of the above eight minimum criteria. This would mean that you would have to commute one or two-hours each day to get to your current job. But your family would be safe when the meltdown begins. And if the meltdown occurs when you are at home with your family, then you would be there to help protect them. If the meltdown occurs while you are at work, and if you leave work immediately and don’t stop anywhere, then there would be a reasonable chance that you might get back home before 24-hours has passed. This would require that you always have at least one-half tank of gas inside your vehicle’s gas tank each day when you arrive at work. Finally, your survival would be greatly increased if you also had a little food and water, a few basic survival items, and a bicycle inside your vehicle that you could ride if you got caught in a grid-lock traffic jam. Most people will not abandon their vehicle immediately because they have an emotional attachment to their vehicle and to just abandon it would not “feel” like the most logical thing to do. The reason is because these people have survived traffic jams in the past by just waiting for them to eventually unravel. But this time it will be different. The traffic jam will never unravel. (Note: If it becomes necessary, park your vehicle on the side of the road and lock it, if that is possible.)

——————————————————————————–

Conclusion
The vast majority of you will probably not share my opinion on this topic because it is just too “scary” and therefore it just can’t happen. However, if you have taken the time to read this entire article then at least you now know about my “one-hour meltdown theory” and you can include it as one of your highly unlikely future scenarios. And if it should actually happen then at least you will not be too surprised by the events as they quickly begin to transpire.

On the other hand, if you think my “one-hour meltdown theory” is not all that ridiculous, then there are three things you could be doing right now to better prepare for the serious hard times ahead:

If you have not already done so, then move to a lightly populated area.

Pray often.

Pray sincerely.

Postscript
In order to minimize the number of future emails about the above article, on July 29, 2009 I decided to add this postscript to my original article.

As I mentioned in the above introduction, nobody can predict the future, and that includes myself.

And as I mentioned in the above conclusion, the vast majority of you will probably not share my opinion on this topic.

Instead of a “bank holiday” almost any reasonably intelligent individual could easily select a different trigger event, or combination of trigger events, that lead to the inevitable meltdown.

And, instead of a “one-hour meltdown,” almost anyone could modify one or more of the original assumptions and change the time frame to 24-hours, or three-days, or two-weeks, or nine-months, or seven-years.

However, since writing the above article seven-days ago, so far I have not received any emails from anyone who believes the meltdown will never happen. The only points of disagreement are on the trigger event and the speed at which the meltdown will unfold.

Individuals who do not believe a “one-hour meltdown” is possible generally believe that our government and financial leaders have some reasonable degree of control over the social and economic factors that are rapidly deteriorating worldwide.

And those individuals who believe the meltdown will be triggered by a different event, such as a terrorist attack (similar to the World Trade Center disaster) or a nuclear explosion in some large city, generally believe that someone or some nation must intentionally do something disastrous to initiate the meltdown.

Since I can’t predict the future I have no valid way to respond to these differences of opinion. As far as I am concerned, everyone has a right to his or her own opinion, and that includes myself.

As I stated in my article, I simply believe that our leaders do not have things under control and that a worldwide bank run could happen unexpectedly at any time, and our leaders have no way to prevent it or to contain it once it begins. It could happen on any day of the week and at any time during the day. But once it starts our leaders will immediately declare a “bank holiday” to prevent catastrophic damage to the financial system and to the reputations of our financial leaders.

May I please use the following analogy. The current worldwide financial situation is like a passenger bus being driven by a bus driver whose future employment depends on keeping to the bus schedule and maintaining the bus passengers confidence in the bus company. The bus is currently being driven down a straight stretch of highway on a really cold rainy day. But the bus is gradually picking up speed, and the temperature is quickly dropping. The bus passengers can see that ice is starting to form in different spots, and that there are some really dangerous curves just ahead. The driver calmly reassures all the passengers that he or she currently has the bus completely under control and therefore nobody should worry because the future will not be any different from the past or the present. However, the smart people on the bus politely ask the driver to stop the bus and when the bus temporarily stops, they get off the bus and they tell the driver they will walk the rest of the way. The remainder of the passengers have no desire to walk in the freezing rain and therefore the calm words of the driver helps to reassure them and they stay inside the bus as it starts back down the icy highway. The bus quickly picks up speed and then it enters the first dead-man’s curve on the edge of a 1,000-foot cliff. The entire curve is completely covered with two-inches of ice. In a matter of seconds the people still on the bus will be no more. The people who got off the bus will still be alive but their continued survival will depend on how prepared they are and whether or not they actually know how to survive in their current extremely difficult circumstances. If they are already wearing a waterproof winter coat and waterproof footwear and they have some matches and some food and water then there is a good chance they will live to see another day.

May I now please interpret my own analogy. The bus is our current worldwide economy. The bus driver represents our current government and financial leaders. The ice represents the fiat money that is currently being increased at an ever accelerating rate. The dead-man’s curve is a “bank holiday.” The people still on the bus are the ones who believe that our leaders have a lot more control over our worldwide economy than they really do, and they are leaving most of their money inside the financial system, and they are continuing to live inside a big city. The people who got off the bus are the ones who live in a more lightly populated area and they are using whatever money they currently have to purchase the things they know they will desperately need in the future.

The above article is completely theoretical. The only reason I wrote the article is to provide you with a possible future scenario that you may not have considered too seriously in the past. However, it is my personal conviction that there is an extremely high probability that our future will be forever changed by a simple unexpected “bank holiday” that results in a “one-hour meltdown” of civilization as we currently know it. And, as I mentioned in the conclusion to my original article, I already know that most of you will not share this opinion with me. And that is perfectly okay with me and I am not in the least bit offended.

Respectfully,
Grandpappy.

HARVESTING WHAT?


                    “HARVESTING WHAT?”

Knowing the history of the bureaucratic hardship imposed by the state of emergency in Agriculture didn’t help ease the reading of the article on the front page of the June 3rd, 2009 Denver Post. That state of emergency was declared in 1934 and is in effect, today. The article, titled “More farmers losing hope”, by Miles Moffeit told the story of financial hardship, stress from uncertain markets and of all things, a suicide prevention hotline for farmers. A study of agricultural history in the U. S. specifically, and the world in general, details the Corporatist seizure of the ability to produce food. When power and control override independence, we see this stress become the norm. At one time, farms were profitable and didn’t need the banks for anything. With the consolidation of the past 75 years, farmers are now the odd group on the outside, looking in. This is why farmers are under so much stress. Just as on every other inhabited continent, the corporate war is against them. The first action of tyrannical governments is to seize control of food production and use it as a weapon. As agriculture goes, so goes the nation. Forget General Motors.

The National Organization for Raw Materials (N. O. R. M.) http://www.normeconomics.org  compiles a yearly table of production data, by area of production. It is a very good history of economic activity. The numbers are certainly very down in these days. With farmers being squeezed out and forced of the land, the work that should be the strength of the nation is under severe attack. While the urban public fails to defend their rural neighbors from corporate commercial attack, they should stop and think about where their food comes from. We must get past ignoring issues until they become a crisis. People will certainly take notice when food either is in short supply or costs twice what it did, a year ago.

Obviously, local independence is in our best interest. When the bottom lines of the banks became more important than the natural order of production and local distribution, the war was on for control of markets and land. This is why we must support farmers markets and local barter systems for goods and services. When we began accepting the paper Ponzi scheme, we became enslaved and exploited. We must understand that the fate of our neighbors is inseparable from our own. Looking for toll – free numbers to call or grant applications to fill out is a dead end in the same debt swamp that caused the original problem.

After decades of sowing debt and reaping poverty, the lesson should be clear. All of the experts with defective educations have led us to the edge of economic conquest by foreign interests. Consumers and farmers must defend each other from the attacks of the Globalist invaders. For too long, the combination of business and politics has invited invasion. Only by direct, local interaction can the outside oppression be excluded. Before Corporatist foreign agendas put farmers out of business and take food off the tables of America’s families, repudiation of the bureaucratic corporate structure must come.

We make choices, every day. At some point, our daily lives must surely must give rise to the need for better results. When do we question the logic of relying on institutions that don’t produce the required results? Delegating personal judgment to representation vulnerable to questionable influence is a recipe for disaster. The upside down and inside out Corporatist structure of this society and world creates more problems than it solves. Not only are decisions made according to private agendas of corporate global interests, but we are saddled with the burden of regulation toxic to local independence. Our neighbors are far more likely to have interests in common with us, than some convened body of public policy makers. That is the bedrock defense of a community against invasion by any organization. Certainly, those who believe the debt economy is a valid business model would not miss us, if we were gone. Being at the mercy of such treacherous mentalities is not an option, if we are to maintain civility and tranquility in our local relationships. We would do better to let the Globalist interests drift out to sea, without our support.


Thin Walls


    Every day, we are reminded of the fragility of life. We are separated from being scorched or frozen out of existence by thin walls. Our daily provision comes through a distribution system vulnerable to the uncertainties of debt manipulation.  Death isn’t the only opportunity to meet our Maker. That is the comfort we have in front of us in every moment. There are many opportunities for conference with our Creator. It is our loss if we do not seek that conversation. We are encouraged repeatedly to open that door and sit down to fellowship with the One who knows the end from the beginning and made all things, by the power of the Word of His mouth.

We see in the events of the day so many crying out for advocacy.  The ultimate Advocate is Yeshuah ha Maschiach, Jesus the Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Seek Him, while he may be found. 


The Spirit of Dr. Moreau


                           The Spirit of Dr. Moreau

At some point, most people have seen the film or read the book, “The Island of Dr. Moreau”.  Of course, we see the theme of obsession with genetic experimentation regularly in the news headlines. This is merely a symptom of a deeper rooted flaw in the fabric of human nature. Society is ambivalent and apathetic toward the concept of human beings as livestock and property of the State. How society reached this point is just as important as where society is going in it’s practices.

      Today, we see a divergence in response to the least of people in society. Private organizations provide basic subsistence resources to displaced and disenfranchised people.  Civil authority displays the opposite response. News headlines regularly feature stories of defenseless people, robbed, assaulted and killed by representatives of civil authority

     Homeless people, the least able to defend themselves, see their meager possessions confiscated and then afflicted with fines beyond their resources to pay. In this manner, civil authority becomes the intake point for the internment camp labor system. As the Corporatist view of humanity infects social morality, the door opens for repetition of the abuses of the past. The protections that existed in society are quietly being eroded.

     In every jurisdiction in the United States, a law enforcement officer is required by Law, to be bonded. Furthermore, said officer is required by Law, upon demand, to provide in writing the name and contact information for the bonding agent. Failure to meet these Lawful requirements is failure to Lawfully identify as a law enforcement officer. Only two possibilities exist in this circumstance:

1. If the law enforcement officer is not bonded, any action taken is as a private citizen, exercising authority that is not legitimately possessed. Any citation or summons issued is then a false instrument.

2. If the law enforcement officer is bonded, but fails to comply with the Law in identifying his or her status, the “officer” is then impersonating a law enforcement officer, a felony.

     There is one very interesting point in this requirement. In my research, I asked a lot of questions, of people with a lot of good answers. It seems that many municipalities, by mutual consent, have chosen to ignore this law. The courts choose to ignore this law. In simple terms, cities choose to be lawless for the sake of expediency.

In history, this is the edge of a cliff. Over that cliff is the descent into Genocide.

     I have a rhetorical question. When you are approached in a secluded area and there are no witnesses present, by a uniformed man carrying a gun, what do you do? My answer is simple. 40 years ago, I was given good advice. It was a very simple statement. I was told, “There is no court out on the road”.

     Since that time, I’ve learned a great deal about the meaning of the statement.  The practical application of the statement is that you do not dispute or challenge anything the armed man says. In that setting, it is possible to be dead right. It appears that the armed man certainly has the means and opportunity to shoot a defenseless individual in the head. It can happen, here. It did happen on a train platform in Oakland, CA. Civil damages are no compensation for senseless and negligent death. Money can not revive the dead.

    Why is this important? The protection provided by the requirements of Lawful identification are all that stand between a just society and Nazi Germany. Uniforms, badges and guns do not constitute legitimate and Lawful authority. People with my mother’s family name were deported from Holland and died in Auschwitz, Dachau and Sobibhor death camps. No one opposed that action and defended the defenseless. This is the complicity in genocide that resulted in 140 million people being murdered by their own governments, in the 20th century.

     Do not think for a moment that modern society is on moral high ground in this matter. The contingency plans discussed for dealing with civil crisis are every bit as brutal and homicidal as anything that any tyrant has done, in the past.


Planet X: Wait And See


Planet X: Wait and See

     There has been so much speculation about the approach of a body from outside the solar system that I’ve taken a “wait and see” approach to the information. There are interesting details in the debate. It’s the observed phenomena that make the debate interesting. 


The most interesting detail is the point of the effect of a large mass on the angular momentum of the solar system.  The central point of the discussion is that the effect of a large mass approaching the orbits of the planets would cause the rotation of the planets to slow down. In the case of the planets other than the one we’re on, that might not mean much to us. Here on Earth, where we live, it could have immediate meaning. If the rotation of the Earth slows, everything from weather, to tide levels, to earthquake and volcanic activity would be affected. A recent NASA article showed the projected orbit of the comet Elenin. This is the body that has drawn great interest as to it’s content and mass. Some say it is a comet. Some say it is a wayward planet, on a much longer orbit. Some say that it is a Brown Dwarf star with a significant percentage of the mass of our own sun.

 I’ll examine the ramifications of the worst-case scenario, a Brown Dwarf star.

     If, in fact, Elinen/Planet X/Niburu, the names most often referring to this object, is a Brown Dwarf star of large mass, then we should see unusual and increasing effects. According to one report, the sun rose in Greenland 2 days earlier than expected. This detail captured my attention. I want to see more proof. If the Earth’s axis has been moved beyond expected behavior, causing this unexpected event, then I should look for reports of other unusual events. If this object has enough mass to accomplish such a disruption, then the Earth’s rotation must also respond to it’s gravity field. This could be serious. The water in the oceans at the equator is 495 feet above sea level. All that holds that water there  is the rotation of the Earth. If the rotation slows, that water would spread out, complying the laws of physics. If the rotation slows by whole seconds, instead of the nanoseconds caused by the recent great earthquakes, then coastal water levels would rise. If I see stories such as water remaining further inland at places like Cape Cod, then some of the waiting for evidence would be completed. The speculation continues beyond this. There is so much debate about climate change. For all of the accounts of strange weather, the fact remains that even more extreme weather than what we’re seeing now has been observed in the last 20 years. For me, the jury is still out on attributing weather events to a disruptive body passing through the solar system.  The fact that a body of some type is approaching, as stated in the NASA article  http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=elenin;orb=1;cov=0;log=0;cad=0#orb  

gives me confirmation that at least something is known to be entering the solar system. Now, I can measure the speculation that continues. The arguments for and against all of the speculation will be tested.

Between now and Oct. 16th, 2011, we should see concrete evidence of what is really going on. I say that we shouldn’t worry about things that haven’t happened, yet. At the same time, we must judge the events that we see and prepare to take the best course of action.


Straight As It Gets


Straight As It Gets

If you’re a passenger in a car, and you see a turn up ahead, do you say something, or stay silent? Perhaps the driver has road hypnosis and doesn’t see what is ahead. Finally, you can’t take the uncertainty, anymore. You say,

“There is a turn ahead. you need to turn to the right, when we get there.”

The driver, disturbed from his mental haze, is a little irked. He says,

“The road has been straight for almost 2,000 years. Go back to sleep and mind your own business.”

You would like to comply, but you are running out of time. This being a crisis, you become more specific. You say,

“If you don’t turn in time, we”ll run off the road and hit a tree!”

Now the driver is so upset that he spills his soft drink in his bag of snacks. This really sets him off. He says in that methodical, on-the-edge voice, “If you don’t shut up, I’ll leave you by the side of the road!”

You quickly reply, “OK!! Stop and let me out!”

As the car slows to a stop, the driver’s mind clears and he sees the tree, too close for comfort. He shouts ,

“HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT WAS THERE?!!”

You quietly answer, “Because my eyes were open to it.”

That is how life is. We never know everything, about everything. For billions of people, there is a turn coming. May our eyes be open to see it. May we speak when timing is in doubt. Some people might run out of time.

Two Masters


     People believe that common ground exists, on which all conflict can be resolved. This is delusion. Believing in two contradictory statements as truth is the definition of madness.

                                        No man can serve two masters
                                        for either he will hate the one,
                                        and love the other; or else he
                                       will hold to the one, and despise
                                       the other. Ye cannot serve God
                                       and mammon.” – Luke 16:13  KJV

     This is why it is impossible for a genuine, born again child of God to be a United States citizen. It is human nature to play both ends against the middle. Human shortsightedness fails to see the consequences of duplicity and double mindedness. First, people lie to themselves. They are then trapped into living that lie to keep the peace with the crowd. U. S. citizens rejected God’s provision in favor of the deal that the corporation in Washington, D. C. has behind Door #2. We shall see how that covenant with Death comes out.
     Let your “yea” be yea, and your “nay” be nay. Any compromise between the two is hypocrisy.
                                  “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Matt. 15: 7 – 9,  KJV
     It is obvious that actual practice in the United States exposes the hypocrisy of the “one nation, under God” concept. The Constitution being as irrelevant as it has become by the duplicity and subterfuge of human nature, there is one little detail that is important. There is no Constitutional requirement for a loyalty oath to the Federal corporation. That being said, we can now examine the nature of oaths and the way they come out in actual practice, in the United States.

     The standard of authority is measured by obedience to the sanctioning Sovereign, the master of the land and the people. This is where the United States committed a fatal error, a great transgression. The important questions multiply with each departure from the precepts that are cited in support of Government authority. One Nation, under God? If so, is this a Nation and Country, identified by free inhabitants on land, lawfully described by recorded metes and bounds, of a political unity, by agreement? It isn’t that way, in the modern corporation, United States. Continuing the hypocrisy, if under Divine Providence, which god does this people worship? Is it education, worshiped by academia as it’s god? Is it the corporate structure, with it’s protocols of service and worship? I would be remiss if I didn’t ask if the social structure usurps the authority and position of the God of Creation. It obviously does, teaching for doctrines, the commandments of men.

     Without getting bogged down in personalities and incidents, there are occasions when we get a glimpse into the inner workings of the corporate structure. The scandals in history expose the obvious depravity in the corporate structure. We have had government by racketeering, extortion, assassination, fraud, influence peddling, graft, perjury and too many other transgressions to list. Could it be that the United States is claiming allegiance to the wrong god?
      There was supposed to be one set of rules, for everybody. Along the way, something got lost in the translation ………

The 6,000 year old struggle for world domination continues.
“And they come into Jerusalem: And Jesus went into the temple,
and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple,
and overturned the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats 0f them that sold doves:
And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel
through the temple. And he taught, saying unto them,
Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the
house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.”
     Just as in that day, as the temple of God in Jerusalem was the central point of standards for society in Israel, so too we were supposed to have a structure that maintained standards in our society. By failure to carry out those duties, the United States Treasury has now become the corrupt temple of the Federal Reserve private bank. No longer is the U. S. Treasury the guardian of honest weights and measures. Those who worship in the house of the Federal Reserve are about to see their tables overturned as they are cast out, into the street.
     As the world has seen many times before, the Earth is the Lord’s, and all things contained, therein. The Creator of all things is the final authority in the affairs of men. Rebellion and corruption don’t last very long, and never have. 
       In the modern world, “the way it is” just keeps right on going, without skipping a beat. Eliminating competition is the United States Way.
“Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart an ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost;
as your fathers did, so do ye. 
Which of the prophets have not your fathers
persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One;
of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers;” - Acts 7:51 ,52 KJV

     We should see the pattern, here. Every corporate structure develops a mechanism to eliminate opposition. The corporate structure of the world is no different in motive and political agenda than it was, 2,000 years ago. For that matter, open hatred and warfare against the Creator has continued for 6,000 years. The pattern is always the same. Kill the messenger, spin the news, protect markets and corporate territories.

Just as in the Book of Acts, we now see a more technologically advanced form of character assassination than in those days, but it’s still trial by public opinion and ostracism. The old, tried and true methods of blacklisting and smear campaigns continue, the pace accelerated by instant communication.  It is a constant in human history that the struggle for control of material wealth results in actions taken that involve spiritual consequences that go unmentioned in public.In the context of this passage, we find one who has a claim to righteousness according to the public perception of the Law,  standing in inaction with the cloaks of them who are busy committing murder, at his feet.  Saul of Tarsis was a learned man, studied and approved by his peers and mentors in the Law. We have enough difficulty dealing with conscience, in hindsight. That is in the context of our public ignorance of the Law. Can you imagine the pressure involved in making judgment in the sudden violence of a public stoning? We should be grateful that we haven’t literally experienced that condition.

In today’s terms, we should still experience the discomfort and anxiety of such a moment. Those in positions of public trust commit all manner of depravity, in our names and by our legal authority. Yet, we continue in corporate trust with such activity. None of the standards of righteous conduct are met in the modern world. How shall we escape certain judgment? As long as present public conduct continues, the world is a vehicle accelerating down the wall of the pit of Hell. We should want to get off that track to destruction and get as far from it as we can. For those who haven’t forsaken the way of the world and called upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, asking for remission of sins, now would be a good time. The day is coming for Eternal destiny to be decided.  That time is an individual decision. Late is the same as never. Whatever you decide, you will remember this, 1,000 years from now

     Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and everyone has a free choice. To make informed decisions, it helps to know who you are dealing with.


“And it came to pass at the time of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near,
and said, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt-sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, the Lord he is the God; the Lord he is the God.”
I Kings 18:36 – 39
     This is what final authority looks like, in action. In Elijah’s day, when people went their own way and followed after other gods, judgment very often was direct and sudden. In our day, we see many examples of rebellion and defiance in current events. Today, the issues are as marked and polarized as any confrontation in antiquity. Many times we have seen civilizations come to a bad end because corruption and iniquity festered until societies came apart at the seams. We have been warned repeatedly of the consequences of actions that have led to the present condition of departure from the Biblical principles that safeguarded America. A confrontation that only Divine intervention can resolve is coming. We must choose this day, whom we will serve.
