Crump on Floyd – “We Don’t Understand” .

 

Who believes in coincidences?

This is an excellent and very revealing article. (You can skip the face the nation video.) I understand why Sundance (the author) doesn’t want to get into this. This is truly dangerous ground.

He brings out again that “officer” Chauvin and George Floyd worked at the same “dance club.” He also states again that this “club” was a front for money laundering and possibly counterfeiting. What he adds today that this was also probably a front for one of our “three letter” agencies.

“El Nuevo Rodeo (hereafter ENR) is a front business. Nothing is as it seems.

The background ownership of ENR takes you to a shady network of LLC’s and the name Omar Investments Inc. (est. 1996). Dig a little deeper and something else becomes evident… The ownership might connect to one or more U.S. three letter agencies.

The ownership network has previous interactions with FBI operations in/around Minneapolis. This is not surprising because Minneapolis Minnesota has more national security operations ongoing than any other community in the country. Various Somali groups are being watched, and anyone can do a google search to see when those security operations surface in the media.

Omar Investments Inc. owns El Nuevo Rodeo Cantina and night club since 1996. The principle of Omar Investments Inc. is Muna Sabri. In 2001 a close relative, Basim Sabri, was captured by the FBI in a sting operation.

…”In 2001, FBI agents recorded Sabri giving Herron $5,000, cash intended to curry the lawmaker’s support for his development. Sabri was later convicted on three bribery counts and fined $75,000.” (link)….

FBI intercept in 2001, there’s the capture. That’s the asset creation point for U.S. security to find a way to embed within Minneapolis, and assist the Sabri’s along the way.

The presented “former club owner”, Maya Santamaria, seen on television, appears to be a purposeful ‘front’ (a face useful in deflecting attention from the primary owner and operations). With that in mind, the scale of false information in/around the visible event, horrible as it was/is, creates layers and layers of purposeful misinformation and a need to control what the public sees in the media.

As I said before, I prefer to sit this one out; however, it is interesting. If you consider that El Nuevo Rodeo might likely be a front for a three letter national security agency; or at the very least a valuable inside source for domestic intelligence and surveillance, things start reconciling rather quickly.

ENR also looks like a money laundering operation. Part of that laundry operation appears to involve counterfeit currency. This enterprise, writ large, looks like the answer to ‘how’ a U.S. agency infiltrated the background criminal network in Minnesota to watch and monitor for domestic threats. So there are layers to what is visible and a myriad of interests involved.

Officer Derek Chauvin is a 19-year veteran of the Mineapolis police dept. Derek Chauvin also worked at ENR for 17 years. That timeline puts Derek Chauvin showing up to work security at El Neuvo Rodeo cantina and club right after the FBI busts Basim Sabri (everyone remembers what intel agencies were doing right after 9-11-01).

Recently – When the Wuhan Virus hits the night club needs to shut down. By extension this shuts down any illicit activity maintained by the legit operation. Any activity within a laundering operation would have to be paused. It would look silly, very suspicious, if the ENR club bookkeeper was making bank deposits while the business is closed.

The police were called because George Floyd was passing counterfeit $20 bills.

Could the way Chauvin, and the responders writ large, interacted with George Floyd have been an outcropping of concern that Floyd was putting the ENR operation at risk?

Read the indictment. Everything was cool until the responding officers attempted to put Floyd in Derek Chauvin’s squad car. Floyd is presented as being ok with the arrest stuff; but really, really, didn’t want to get in Derek’s car.

17-years as a “security officer” for El Nuevo Rodeo. Was Chauvin the enforcer?

Does that explain why everyone seems casual, even the responding EMT’s?

Could the national security angle explain why no prior charges against Chauvin in a 2006 shooting were ever sought?

One thing is clear, as attested by Benjamin Crump, Derek Chauvin and George Floyd knew each-other; this was not some random street incident. Arguably, every single person in/around law enforcement and EMT response that day knew each-other.”

Who would go through a cost-prohibitive process to counterfeit $1 dollar bills?

A U.S. national security agency conducting an operation with little interest in the profit dynamic; that’s who.

And now the rest of the story.

The entire “Russia, Russia, Russia” hoax was managed through the CIA and particularly John Brennan and Peter Strzok II. Strzok was both FBI and CIA. One common thread with the CIA, is that they seem to keep membership within the families. Peter’s father was also CIA and Peter spent grade school in Iran until the fall of the Shaw. Then he went with his father to Saudi Arabia where his father ran CIA operations in East Africa. Little Pete graduated from Georgetown in 1991 and became an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army. He participated in operations in East Africa. And his uncle was a Jesuit priest missionary in East Africa. Little Pete left the military in 1996 and joined the FBI as an intelligence research specialist and reportedly did this without ever going through an FBI training program.

Peter’s father retired from the military after 21 years and settled in Minnesota and took an assignment with Catholic relief services, where I believe he continues to work.

It is obvious that both of them are very familiar with East Africa, Islam and Somalia. I have also read in many places that once a person is CIA, they are always CIA. They never retire.

There are multiple other “coincidences,” but we do not want to get down too far into the rabbit hole. But how can you rectify the connection between the police officer, his victim, and this latest false flag attempting to bring down POTUS in the United States?

To Barr or Not to Barr

Today a person of the Press asked President Trump about AG Barr’s statements about a perceived non prosecution of Former illegal President Obama and VP Biden,  President Trump had not time to digest what  Barr was purported to have said, but that he did know Barr as an honorable man and expressed confidence in AG Barr.

Perhaps Barr is referring to fact that Military Tribunals may be used and charges would  not be pursued in the Politically charged Civilian Courts. The other thing is that if right now Barry, Joey and the others Hillary and Bill were brought out as they are under Criminal investigation the whole effort might come to perhaps open warfare and assassinations. The DS and Communist (DNC) and the Dem Party would love for Barr make an error like that . That is why the Left keep asking POTUS who he talks about and what the charges and penalties he wants when he says Treasonous. We are in a war and we have to remember that. Lots of us want to see the Perp walks and arrest. Many wanted to see that by now. It is not ours to know when and demanding that we know when or thinking some people are not to be trusted when they give an answer that is not what they want to hear.

Churchill said ” Truth is best protected by a bodyguard of Lies”  Churchill was in WW2 Fighting the same DS as we are in a war now with the Same DS. This is the same DS that killed JFK and RFK and most likely JFK Jr. Lincoln was assassinated by the same powerful DS because he was going to print the Treasury Notes and not from a Central Bank.

After we prevail against the DS here in the US, there will have to be a total take down of the DS across the World.   In a generation or two, the same dreams of Global Domination and Ownership will rear its ugly head and our Children and Grand Children will have to fight the same battle. People die, Thoughts and Dreams do not.

We know not when the world will end or Christ returns That is such a weight and power that I would not want to bear. Many desire to and need to tell a date and time yet as always, the time passes. When that time comes and  it will, the time appointed will be upon us not when we say but in God’s time as it should be. Each of us Should be ready according to our own capacity strengths and gifts .

Many Pastors, Priest and Holy Men have fallen to the wayside because of the weight and perceived power of knowing the Date of Christ Return. Most use this perceived power for Control over their congregations and flocks.  Some perhaps more that a few use this supposed power to Beguile Church members.

What is  important is that in these desperate times we pray and ask for Our Father’s Strength and Guidance to carry us through, defeating the Enemy in Heaven and on Earth. Each of us needs to ask our Father not just for ourselves but for all of mankind, for those who are in the Family of Christ, and for those yet to join and who love Freedom and our inalienable rights as Human Beings.

Deep State Acceleration: Impeachment

We are watching the culmination of accelerated efforts by the Deep State that began in earnest shortly after WW2. Back then it was the purview of progressive educational systems, academics (Timothy Leary) , those in think tanks and various alphabet agencies

The Hijacking of the Democrat Party went into high gear 56 years ago with the Kennedy Assassination. The GOP has Globalist members however the GOP requires a different mind set and attitude. Democrats and the party most easily align with the Communist structure, hive thinking and behavior. With Johnson and the Great Society the die was cast in1965 the program stayed and grew in place with Nixon and Ford. People swallowed the Propaganda of Big Government spending enough to bring us out of poverty .

Today the same Propaganda tell us all will be free, education, food, housing , medical treatment and i am sure other things with enter into the mix. Problem is that the money will run out shortly after all the role outs of free stuff. Again the maxim of Hillary’s will prove correct. The voters, their voters are stupid. The Dems offer nothing but total economic enslavement.

The Deep State has taken control of the Agriculture and for most of the Population the water supply.

This is what we are fighting. Perhaps it will be a civil war, perhaps not. I feel fairly certain that we can win but we in need to be a tough state of mind to beat them. We also need to understand that our fight is a mirror of the battle going on in the Spiritual Realm. Perhaps we are looking at the ultimate final battle.

We did not ask for this fight but here it is. It is up to Us with our President and his leadership to finish the fight. We are in a Death Match. We win, we live if we lose the Battle then the world dies.

A/HRC/33/61/Add.2
I. Introduction

At the invitation of the Government of the United States of America, the Working
Group of Experts on People of African Descent undertook a visit to the United States from
19 to 29 January 2016. The members of the delegation were Mireille Fanon Mendès-
France, Sabelo Gumedze and Ricardo Sunga III.

The Working Group visited Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Maryland; Jackson,
Mississippi; Chicago, Illinois; and New York City. The Working Group met with
representatives of several government departments and offices, including the Department of
State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Housing and Urban
Development, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, the
Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency. The Working Group also
met with officials of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, in Washington, D.C.

In Baltimore, the Working Group met with the Maryland federal judges. In Jackson,
the Working Group met with officials of the Office of the Mayor and the Office of the
Attorney General of the State of Mississippi. In Chicago, the Working Group met with the
Attorney General of the State of Illinois, and with representatives of the Office of the
Mayor of the City of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department. In New York City, the
Working Group met with the Office of the Attorney General of the State of New York. The
Working Group also met with officials of the White House working on African American
issues and with staff of the congressional black caucus and interacted with a member of the
United States Senate. In all the cities that the Working Group visited, it also met with
hundreds of African Americans from communities with a large population of people of

suburbs, as well as with
representatives of non-governmental organizations.

The Working Group thanks the Government for its invitation and for its cooperation
during the visit. In particular, the Working Group thanks the Office of Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs at the Department of State for its support. The Working Group would
also like to warmly thank the US Human Rights Network for coordinating meetings with
civil society in different parts of the country, and all the people who shared their views on
the human rights situation of African Americans in the country.

The civil rights movement from 1954 to 1968 was another important era in the
struggle for rights by people of African descent in the country. The Montgomery bus
boycott, the Selma to Montgomery marches, and many non-violent protests and acts of civil
disobedience throughout the country led to further legislative developments, including but
not limited to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibited, among other things,
discrimination based on race or colour; the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which sought to
overcome the legal barriers to the exercise of voting rights by African Americans; and the
Fair Housing Act of 1968, which prohibited discrimination in the purchase or renting of

enforcement of Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, a systemic ideology of racism
ensuring the domination of one group over another continues to impact negatively on the
civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of African Americans today.

about measures that several federal agencies were undertaking to enforce civil rights laws.

and in reduction of violence.

Another measure was the creation of a task force to identify best practices and to
make recommendations to the President on how policing practices can promote effective
crime reduction while building public trust. The task force released its report on 18 May
2015 with a set of recommendations divided into six pillars: building trust and legitimacy,
policy and oversight, technology and social media, community policing and crime
reduction, training and education, and officer wellness and safety. The report adopted
positive recommendations on key issues such as racial profiling, the use of force, the
independence of investigations into killings by police officers, data collection, civilian
oversight of law enforcement agencies and police workforce diversity, among others. The
recommendations are not binding on state and local agencies.

States Attorney General created the Office for Access to Justice to address the crisis in the
provision of indigent legal defence that continues to have a specific impact on African
Americans and other minorities. In 2016, the Attorney General launched a set of reforms to
the criminal justice system known as the Roadmap to Re-entry, which is aimed at reducing
the existing high level of recidivism and at improving public health, child welfare,
employment, education, housing and other key reintegration outcomes for those who have
served their time in the federal prison system.

Disparities in access to education, health, housing and employment

The cumulative impact of racially motivated discrimination faced by African
Americans in the enjoyment of their rights to education, health, housing and employment,
among other economic, social, cultural and environmental rights, has had serious
consequences for their overall well-being. Racial discrimination continues to be systemic
and rooted in an economic model that denies development to the poorest African American
communities. More than 10 million (26 per cent) of African Americans remain mired in
poverty, and of that figure, almost half (12 per cent) live in what is known as “deep
poverty”.

A/HRC/33/61/Add.2

The Working Group is concerned about reports that across the country there are
police officers in schools, without appropriate training, arresting children for minor
offences and dealing with behavior that previously would be handled as part of a school
disciplinary process, resulting in the criminalization of children’s behavior and severe
punishment. The police have the authority to detain, frisk and arrest children in school. For
example, a black female student was violently arrested by a school resource officer at
Spring Valley High School in South Carolina in 2015. Zero tolerance policies and heavy-
handed efforts to increase security in schools have led to the excessive penalization and
harassment of African American children through racial profiling. African American
children are more likely to face harsh disciplinary measures than white children and are
being pushed out of school into the criminal justice system — a phenomenon that has been

The Working Group is concerned by the underfunding and closure of schools,
particularly those in poor neighborhoods with significant African American populations.
The Working Group was particularly concerned to learn of threats to close Chicago State
University, a historically black university.

In school curricula, the historical facts concerning the period of colonization, the
transatlantic trade in Africans, and enslavement, which have been crucial to the
organization of contemporary American society, are not sufficiently covered in all schools.
The curricula in some states fail to address adequately the root causes of racial inequality
and injustice. This contributes to the structural invisibility of African Americans.

The Working Group also received information about de facto segregation of schools.
This segregation appears to be nurtured by a culture rooted in the legacy of racial inequality
and by failure to address the history of racial injustice, enslavement and the Jim Crow laws.

The Working Group noted that a number of factors contributed to the disparities
faced by African Americans in realizing the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable
standard of health, which included lack of access to health insurance coverage, lack of
access to preventive services and care, and shortcomings related to a lack of diversity and
of cultural competency among those giving the care. While the implementation of the
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has led to 20 million people getting health
insurance coverage, states with some of the widest health disparities in the country have
rejected expansion of Medicaid, one of the main tools to cover the uninsured. Nine out of
ten people who fall into the coverage gap live in the South, and black adults are more likely

The Working Group learned that African Americans had limited access to food
variety, including to healthy food, as they were concentrated in poor neighbourhoods with
food outlets selling unhealthy and even expired food. African Americans have the highest
rates of obesity, which is linked to “food deserts”.

segregation in many of the metropolitan areas in the United States. In the Working Group’s
meeting with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a series of maps were
shown which not only starkly depicted high concentrations of African American families in
low-income neighborhoods and districts, but also reflected the correlation between racial
segregation and socioeconomic disparities in access to health, education, and even access to
adequate food, between the African American population and the white population. The
Working Group was informed that people of African descent were more likely than other
people with similar borrower characteristics to be victims of predatory lending, to receive
higher-cost loans and to lose their homes to foreclosure. The Department of Housing and

African American people are also concerned that they are disproportionately
exposed to environmental hazards that impact on their health and standard of living. They
are often forced to live in disadvantaged areas with hazardous environments (e.g. in
proximity to industrial toxicity, power stations, flood zones and so on) and without access
to social and commercial facilities. The most polluting industrial facilities, across a range of
sectors from farming and mining to manufacturing, are more likely to be situated in poor
and minority neighborhoods, including those of people of African descent. For instance, the
Working Group is concerned about the possible health risks to African Americans on
account of the incinerator project in Curtis Bay, Baltimore, and the lead-contaminated
water in Flint, Michigan. The Working Group was also informed about the destruction of
public housing in some cities; at the same time, public funding for new houses appears to
be insufficient to meet the demands for new housing.

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, in 2015, of the
more than half a million homeless people in the United States, African Americans
constituted 40.4 per cent. They also constituted 27.8 per cent of the homeless people who
were unsheltered.

Despite the recovery of the United States economy, the impact of the 2008 and 2009
recession on African Americans is still very much present. The unemployment rate among
African Americans is almost twice the national unemployment rate. The Working Group is
particularly concerned about the level of unemployment among young African Americans
without a high school degree. In 2014, the annual income for African Americans was just
under half the income of white Americans who are not Hispanic.

People of African descent continue to be underrepresented in management positions.
In 2013, they accounted for only 7 per cent of workers in management occupations. Instead,
African Americans disproportionately work in temporary jobs with less security and lower
salaries. Nearly half a million African Americans earn the minimum wage. The Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission continues to receive more than 30,000 complaints a
year concerning racial discrimination.

Multiple forms of discrimination

The Working Group studied intersectionality of the different forms of discrimination
faced by people of African descent and heard experiences of racial discrimination based on
ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, sex and gender identity. The Working Group is
particularly concerned by the increasing number of murders of transgender women of
African descent and the increasing level of violence affecting them. Racial discrimination
also disparately impedes the ability of African American women to maintain overall good
health, control their sexuality and reproduction, survive pregnancy and childbirth, and

Recommendations

The Working Group reiterates the recommendation that it made after its visit
to the United States of America in 2010 to establish a national human rights
commission in accordance with the principles relating to the status of national
institutions for the promotion and protection of human rights (Paris Principles). The
Government should establish within this body a specific division to monitor the
human rights of African Americans.

In addition to the above, the Working Group urges the Government of the
United States of America to consider the ratification of the core international human
rights treaties to which the United States is still not a party, with a view to removing
any gaps in the protection and full enjoyment of rights therein. It also encourages the
United States to ratify regional human rights treaties and to review the reservations
related to the treaties that it has signed or ratified.

Federal and state laws should be adopted that incorporate the International
Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other international human rights treaties,
as well as regional treaties. To this end, an inter-agency body should be created,
composed of high-level officials from the executive, the legislature and the judiciary at
both the federal and the state levels, who will take steps to give effect to the decisions,
resolutions, views, observations and recommendations of United Nations human
rights bodies such as the Human Rights Council, the treaty bodies and special
procedures, and of regional human rights bodies.

There is a profound need to acknowledge that the transatlantic trade in
Africans, enslavement, colonization and colonialism were a crime against humanity
and are among the major sources and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination,
Afrophobia, xenophobia and related intolerance. Past injustices and crimes against
African Americans need to be addressed with reparatory justice.

Monuments, memorials and markers should be erected to facilitate public
dialogue. Education must be accompanied by acts of reconciliation, to overcome acts
of racial bigotry and legacies of racial injustice. Federal and state legislation should be
passed recognizing the negative impact of enslavement and racial injustice.
19

A/HRC/33/61/Add.2

During the International Decade for People of African Descent, public forums
or hearings should be held with African Americans in order to create a constructive
and open dialogue in which organizations and social movements can share experiences
and engage with policymakers and institutions of the local, state and federal
government on ways to address the crisis being experienced by American society.

In imposing sentences, the welfare of the family of the accused should be taken
into account, with particular attention given to the best interests of the child.

Appropriate measures should be adopted to prevent excessive bail. Alternatives
to detention should also be explored.

Community policing strategies should be developed to give the community
control of the police that are there to protect and serve them. The Working Group
recommends that communities establish boards that would elect police officers they
want playing this important role.

Before non-payment of a court fine or fee is treated as a civil contempt of court
charge, it should first be determined whether the individual has the ability to pay.
Imprisonment should not be offered as a way of paying off the debt. If the debt cannot
be paid, the fee should not be levied.

The Working Group also recommends that the prison reform processes and
policies include specific policies to address the increasing rate of incarceration of
African American women.

Solitary confinement should be banned absolutely for being in violation of
international human rights law standards, particularly those found in the Convention
against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment
and in the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.

The Working Group recommends that the Government allow independent
monitoring of places of detention in the United States, and in this connection that it
consider inviting the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or
degrading treatment or punishment. As part of a call for greater expression of
commitment to the rights of detainees, the Working Group takes the opportunity to
urge the Government to ratify the Optional Protocol to the Convention against
Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, which
creates a mechanism for unrestricted and unannounced visits to places of detention.

International human rights standards should be observed in the criminal
justice system. The Working Group recommends the abolition of the death penalty
throughout the United States.

21

A/HRC/33/61/Add.2

The Working Group calls upon the Government to ensure that all states repeal
laws that restrict voting rights. In particular, it urges reinstatement of the voting
rights of persons convicted of a felony who have completed their sentences.

Targeted measures should be developed to raise awareness of and reduce
crimes against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex community,
in particular against transgender women.

Asylum seekers should not be imprisoned pending a determination of their
application for refugee status. The right to counsel and the right to an interpreter
should be respected at all times.

The Working Group recommends extending access to affordable health care to
a greater part of the population. Health policies and programmes should place
particular priority on access to quality and affordable health care with targeted goals
for reducing the maternal mortality of African American women.

Consistently, the school curriculum in each state should reflect appropriately
the history of the transatlantic trade in Africans, enslavement and segregation.

The Department of Education should study zero tolerance policies and their
disparate impact on African American students. A task force should be created to
specifically focus on realigning and re-engaging students who have been dismissed
from educational institutions as part of a zero tolerance policy.

The Working Group recommends upholding the right to adequate standards of
living, including adequate food, housing, and safe drinking water and sanitation. The
Government should immediately halt the demolition of public housing if replacement
units have not been guaranteed. All such activities must be undertaken only through
prior and informed consent and with the participation of the people affected.

The Working Group urges the Government to strengthen the implementation
of Executive Order 12898, including through the allocation of adequate resources.

The Government of the United States of America should undertake a review of
policies to improve protection of the environment and ensure that environmental
justice is provided.

The Working Group encourages the Government to undertake impact-oriented
activities in the framework of the International Decade for People of African Descent
(2015-2024).

Technological Growth with no God or Spiritual Guidance

Brain Harvest

I read an article on the artificial human Russian Brain. One born in a laboratory, capable of thought and reason. Perhaps a pipe dream or not. Interesting reading but I think that if the artificial brain is to become really effective it would be based upon the model that we currently use, a computer. In one sense you, I and all the rest of us are nothing but bio computers. The difference is that our soul, that which makes us the creations of God most likely will not inhabit the artificial brain. That requires the spark of life from God.
The real need is not to make a growing living physical brain that needs blood to survive but to enlarge capability and the speed of computers. This is accomplished a greater capabilities in hardware and software.
Science once again his encroaching in territory that it has no place to be. That is illustrated very easily with Planned Parenthood which should be called the PP Society where death is just a wiz away. Planned Parenthood has taken the idea of organ donation and applied it to the abortion practice with deadly glee. The fetus is looked upon with distain, with a value not of life but great profit. Nothing that this cult of child sacrifice does or promotes can ever be seen as anything but as death with a smiley face with dollar signs for eyes.
Here a physical brain can be harvested but to what end. Is this used as a study model, as Einstein’s brain was cut and placed on glass slides or are some cells extracted or perhaps there is a purpose
that is yet to be discovered. Could a soul of another perhaps supernatural being be installed in the harvested brain, then placed in a body of a clone? Cloning sheep and other animals is now a fact, I would imagine that clones of humans exist beyond the bounds of our imaginations. There is one basic question that needs to be explored and as of yet, no public debate has been able to determine an answer and that is of the soul.
Would a clone have a mirror soul of the person being cloned? Would it have its own unique soul? Would the clone be able to exist if it in fact has no soul? Once these questions can be fully and factually then one question can be answered concerning the abortion issue, and that is this: When is the soul married to the body?
So far, we have so many brilliant minds across the world working with and worshiping Technology with no spiritual guidance. The mantra for this work and worship has the focus of only We can do it so we
should. Those scientist and researchers who question this approach as reckless and fraught with dangers are by and large shut out and shunned. Daring Do and Be Bold, and You Can Do It are chanted because Big Money is involved.
Hollywood along with TV have asked these questions in the form of Science Fiction movies, with the moral of the movie warning us to be aware of this looming danger. While this may not be the reality
now, as we struggle with the violence consuming us, the real danger will be in 25 or so years, in the generations of our grand children and beyond. The harvesting of fetus tissue and remains is something that never came up in any Science Fiction that I ever saw in mainstream media. This is what the nightmare really is. The Boogie man is Planned Parenthood. They may have started out in a benign fashion but have grown into something else. Technology will make their process more evil and easier, perhaps Planned Parenthood will be paying the abortion patients rather than the patients paying for the procedure.

Abortions have long been seen in some circles as a rite of passage and the domain of a select few women, with no input from the prospective fathers or other family members. The bosses at Planned Parenthood seek absolute power and funding all the while with this power comes absolute corruption of the Soul and Body. A horrible quest for
population control, power and personal gain a few. Very reminiscent of the Nazi purity final solutions with the same zeal, only Planned Parenthood smiles sweetly while killing those in the womb.
How does all this tie together, these both are encroachments into Gods domain. The gravest danger beyond unintended consequences is the very real danger of women or men trying to become as God or striving to replace God. That in itself is terrible awesome power that is beyond the capability of Mankind to understand or wield. It has not worked for others nor will it work now. From the ancient kings to the recent past to the present, men and women who did try eventually failed.
When Adam and Eve were commanded not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge, this was the warning for us not to assume to or think to become God. Made in his image, is not the same as being.

A Difficult Long Season

A Difficult Long Season.

A view of our landscape perceived through the lens of the length of time left, can be confusing as well as shedding light on things hidden, or perhaps on things we wish were still hidden.

Election time once more brings into retrospect things that at one time were murky and clouded; some things that many had hoped were dead issues yet have come back alive. Some things that bring out a violent response yet really are a symptom of much deeper problems, yet the symptom is easier to talk about, while achieving nothing toward the underlying issue.

This is nothing new nor should it be but does need to be pointed out from time to time, lest we be deceived with our own frailty of sight and knowledge.

Fears let fly, confusion abounds, anger surfaces and divisions that we thought were healed are exposed. The politics of the day demand that fears become amplified, pointed out and used as platform for political players that may not otherwise rise to the occasion of being noticed on the national stage, using drama and blame to try to point out just how reasonable a person is.

We have a bevy of candidates that offer little in the way of substance and lots of criticism for an opponent. There is no incentive for a candidate to actually develop a plan of action, much let execute said plan. All that is really needed is for a loud voice, rhetoric, beguiling smile and some loud deception. Wrap it up with religious symbols and zeal, the national or state flag, perhaps both and there you go. The only planning is focused into getting elected or staying in office, ensuring the money keeps coming in.   We also have some individuals so bombastic in delivery of thoughts, distorted ideas based on their inflated ego that the general electorate just smiles, winks and moves on in the agony of window shopping for a candidate.

Seduction and lies become the norm. Voters like to be beguiled, that way if things go wrong, the voter can say I was hoodwinked. Absolving the voter of any responsibility as they were wholly seduced out of an intelligent decision and therefore the liability is solely resting on the process and candidate.   In the recent past, say of 200 years, striving for public office filled with the desire and will to do good for the public was seen as something noble and grand. Once every few years one or two will rise to the surface, the voters then smile on the individual and the rest of the candidate field leave the battle wondering why they didn’t have the Right Stuff.

As we move at the breakneck speed of a snail towards election time, we need to realize and remember that the primary reason for voting is our individual financial state. Finances making what amounts to a moral decision as to whom our leaders of state are and will be. Never looking, never trying to understand the law of unintended consequences for the decision that is made in the ballot box .

This is not a problem unique to any one nation or group of peoples for the malady is shared by all.

Next up, the New World Order. Well perhaps.

Hello

Good Evening or if you are on the Eastern Seaboard of the US Good Morning.  This a new Blog and I hope that we all can enjoy and comment on. Please feel free to leave comments or make subject suggestions. I ask only that comments be made in a manner befitting public exposure with no profanity as usually there are usually good alternatives to be found in the English language.  Sometimes profanity is helpful in expressing frustration or anger and sometimes joy but lets keep it to a bare minimum.

Most if not all comments will be made in editorial form, rather than reporting the news.

Thank you

Jim
