We Chose Optimism Over Honesty

Without an honest look at what is real, there can never be a hope for the future. Never. Yes, there might be moments of accidental prosperity. From time-to-time, you might experience something above average, but you can never hold off reality.

In fact, one of the reasons why I continue to commit all of my life to Christ, is that the Bible is the clearest reflection of reality that we have. Yet, we prefer the momentary pleasures of fantasy, instead the gritty truth residing within those pages bound together and sent around the world.

We are facing the most horrific moment in a thousand years precisely because we chose optimism over honesty.

I just read something a couple of hours ago that seems to connect all the articles that I’ve been reading and the videos that I’ve been watching – over the past few days:

We need to value honesty above optimism. Once we can speak honestly, there is a foundation for optimism.

 – Charles Hugh Smith, America’s Social Depression Is Accelerating

That is the truth. It’s also an indictment of humanity and the country that I once called home, the United States. And, since we dispensed with honesty a long time ago, we have lost any foundation for the optimism that seems to rule our lives.

Think about the threats that lie in our future, and then look at our leadership.

Did you notice anyone doing anything realistic about those threats?

Of course not. Nothing substantial is being done about the horrifying deficit, the migrant invasion, the collapse of morality and decency, the opioid abuse epidemic, the rise in STDs, the collapse in educational standards, the rise in government corruption and Peak Oil. And, that last one just makes me madder than… well …I’m not sure if there’s anything that I can adequately compare my anger to, in my angst over the dumbfounding ignorance of our future without enough energy. And, when I talk about ANY of these subjects, with anyone, the classic ‘glazed look’ comes over them as they seek for an easy escape from the conversation.

Having said that, I don’t often have those conversations here, perched in my aerie, in Taipei. And, I’m blessed to be going to a church where some of these subjects are at least recognized. Well, except for Peak Oil. People here still don’t get that.

To really see that PEAK OIL is in our midst, you need to look at the fine print buried deep within the balance sheets of companies doing all this fracking. They’re losing money. Lots and lots of it. And, there’s no hope that they will ever turn a profit. Ever.

I know. I know. It can make your head hurt, thinking about balance sheets. Those are just numbers, and the people producing those numbers are lying to all of us and attempting to use artful misdirection to keep us from seeing how bad off they are, and we are.

There’s that honesty thing again.

Why are we so reluctant to devote ourselves to being real?

After all, honesty is just the willingness to apply what is real to yourself, and yourself to what is real. Yes, I know that honesty means telling the truth, but you can’t tell the truth, if you don’t know what that is.

I know that honesty is hard, but it will preserve your life. Without it, you just do not have any hope of navigating our difficult future. Yet, people have chosen differently.

Remember how Hitler murdered eleven million people. Andy Andrews wrote a book about that, and you can summarize that book with just two words:

You lie.

That’s all that Hitler needed to do. And, we are going to see far more than eleven million die over the next months and years. But, the biggest lies will have been told by ourselves.

Never choose optimism over honesty.

OMEGA SHOCK UNDER ATTACK

Please note that I’m experimenting with improved security measures because the Omega Shock server has been under attack for quite some time. I want to apologize for some of the inconvenience that you will experience when commenting. Hopefully, just your first comment will be the only time that you need to go through captcha/recaptcha.

I don’t think that this will be enough to keep the server from crashing so often, but we’ll see. If you see that Omega Shock doesn’t load immediately, that’s the reason.

I’m not ready to see anything dark or sinister in these attacks. Most (or all) are probably from those seeking a way to insert spam bots into the Omega Shock server.

However, the reason doesn’t matter. I will keep increasing the security on the server until the attackers choose an easier victim.

[MUST WATCH!!] The Conspiracy Libel: Documentary about anti-semitic conspiracy theories (Part One) – YouTube

I try to only claim that a movie is a ‘MUST WATCH’ as rarely as possible. And, this one certainly fits that description eloquently. This is more than just a discussion of the history of anti-semitism. It’s also a discussion of why we create conspiracy theories to explain our own failings.

There ARE conspiracies, but they are far more mundane than many theorists like to claim. Grand conspiracies are notoriously hard to make successful, but that doesn’t keep the theorists from concocting stories about vast plots.

A lot of what we like to label ‘conspiracy’ is merely greed, dishonesty, psychopathy and the historical process of humanity making its rendezvous with a depressing destiny. Again, I am NOT claiming that there aren’t conspiracies attempting to promote the self-interest of elites.

The evidence of such conspiracies are everywhere.

But, a Jewish conspiracy?

Are they out of their minds?

In a word, “YES!”

But, back to this film. Very few videos have put together such an interesting and thoughtful view of history. When we think of The Enlightenment and the revolutions that swept through Europe, we often interpret these events through our own ‘modern’ views of democracy and republicanism – not realizing that this was a titanic shift in thinking.

We have also forgotten the great persecution suffered by the Jews for thousands of years. But, it was that same persecution that forced them into a way of living that made them able to benefit so greatly from these new developments. If the Jews had NOT been persecuted, they would not be doing as well today, as they are.

What incredible irony that the Jews have done so well because they suffered so much. And, that irony is made even more delicious because their enemies have fallen so low. Unfortunately, the enemies of the Jews never learn, and the foulest comments in the comment section of this video are proof of that.

At this moment, most of the YouTube comments there (at 262) are horrifying. They represent exactly what this video is talking about. The hatred is obscene. The stupidity repellent. The language ridiculous. It’s as if the worst of humanity decided to trot through that comment section and seek to prove that we are all morons – and that there must be something good about the Jews, if people like this hate them so much.

What an abomination. What a foul, stinking example of the worst of humanity.

May the Lord God give them no rest until they repent and seek to undo the damage that they have done.

I guess that you are not only known by your friends, but also by your enemies. With enemies like these, the Jews must be pretty awesome.

And, I’m as Jewish as a ham sandwich.

A truly excellent video, even for those – like me – who thought that they knew all that they needed to know. Even I found out a few things that I hadn’t heard before.

Very, very well done.

U.S. SHALE OIL INDUSTRY: Catastrophic Failure Ahead – SRSrocco Report

I keep running into people who refuse to face the facts. The obvious, impossible-to-ignore facts.

The shale oil industry is lying to you. And, they manipulate their ‘numbers’ so that you do not see the truth. But, there is one truth that is hard for them to hide – their balance sheets.

There is a reason why Shale Oil companies are losing and losing and losing and losing money. And, for those of you with a finance background, you should understand the significance of issuing bonds and shares to fund operating costs.

Unfortunately, the average person does NOT have a background in finance, so they are vulnerable to the lies being told by the Shale oil liars. The average person has bought into the lie that the ‘shale oil miracle’ is real. The average person has bought into the lie that shale is the future.

Please, until the shale-oil salesmen can come up with better balance sheets than the horrific losses that they’ve been suffering, you need to stop believing them. You are only hurting yourself, when you believe the lying liars.

We used to call such lying liars, ‘snake oil salesmen’. One day, we’ll call them, ‘shale oil salesmen’. And yes, it’s really that bad.

U.S. Shale Has A Glaring Problem | OilPrice.com

Here is absolute, damning proof that the previous article was absolutely and completely correct in all of its horrifying detail. In fact, I will quote the first four paragraphs:

Oil prices are down a bit, but are still close to multi-year highs. That should leave the shale industry flush with cash. However, a long list of U.S. shale companies are still struggling to turn a profit.

A new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) and the Sightline Institute detail the “alarming volumes of red ink” within the shale industry.

“Even after two and a half years of rising oil prices and growing expectations for improved financial results, a review of 33 publicly traded oil and gas fracking companies shows the companies posting negative free cash flows through June,” the report’s authors write. The 33 small and medium-sized drillers posted a combined $3.9 billion in negative cash flow in the first half of 2018.

The glaring problem with the poor financial results is that 2018 was supposed to be the year that the shale industry finally turned a corner. Earlier this year, the International Energy Agency painted a rosy portrait of U.S. shale, arguing in a report that “higher prices and operational improvements are putting the US shale sector on track to achieve positive free cash flow in 2018 for the first time ever.”

Yet, with all of that, you still find companies claiming that they’ll be making money soon. And, the IEA is passing these statements on without any real comment. I can’t believe that we are still living this lie.

Kids, I know that it is far more pleasant to live in a fantasy world of make-believe. After all, I love to read a good novel, when I have a little extra time. But, you aren’t supposed to believe that these novels are REALITY.

To those of you who refuse to see the obvious about the PEAK OIL disaster bearing down upon us, STOP LIVING IN YOUR FANTASY WORLD!!!

Ignoring reality is a really messy way to die.

Rates Of STDs Rise Sharply: “We Are Sliding Backward” | Zero Hedge

This is maddening, and it’s yet another sign of utter stupidity. There comes a point at which the patient becomes too stupid to save.

We are past that point.

Of Two Minds – China’s Next Revolution Is on the Horizon

China is a fascinating place. It’s chock-full of contradiction, foolishness and history. It has wisdom, geopolitics and utter stupidity – all mixed together. And, there are times when I wonder if my close range view of all this will be all that safe when it falls apart.

But, I’m beginning to think that I need to be here so that you can see what China is doing.

I doubt that I would be talking about China as much as I have, were it not for the fact that China is just a hundred miles from my apartment, here in Taipei. In fact, were it not for the curvature of the Earth, I could see China from my balcony – on a really, really clear day. And, we get lots of Chinese air pollution drifting through our windows.

There’s another aspect to all this that Charles Hugh Smith has illustrated. And, it’s all about the true nature of power. And he talks about it this way:

Power is people choosing of their own accord to comply, for reasons they find sound and that serves their self-interest; there is little need for the application of force.

Power is highly leveraged; a relatively small police/military and judiciary is all that’s needed. Force, in contrast, doesn’t scale: it’s enormously costly in capital and labor to monitor an entire populace and impose control and obedience.

True power lies not with force, but with persuasion. And, this is something that I’ve been pounding on for quite some time. And, few seem to really understand this.

Lots of people love to toss around stories of conspiracy this and conspiracy that. But, these ‘conspiracies’ would have little impact without our direct and voluntary participation.

That why I keep saying:

WE DID THIS.

(And yes, we really did.)

That’s a big part of the reason why. We voluntarily chose to participate in our own enslavement. We did this to ourselves. But, Charles doesn’t end there.

The rise of broadly distributed prosperity (Deng’s “to get rich is glorious”) replaced the failed power of Communist ideology with a new social contract: obey the party and the state and you’ll become prosperous.

If this new contract was rock-solid, why would China’s government need the vast surveillance system they’re putting in place for fine-grained control of the populace? Clearly, the leadership (Xi and his cabal) are aware that the prosperity is not permanent, nor is it being distributed evenly enough to harmonize Heaven and Earth.

This demonstrates that cracks are forming in power structure of Communist China. Then, Charles goes on to say this:

Force is not a substitute for power. For this reason, the “Social Credit Score” system smacks of desperation. Xi et al. see the storm clouds on the horizon and are moving quickly to install an autocratic system of Total Information Awareness and Control.

And THAT is the lesson that you need to understand, as you look for evidence of the rise of the Antichrist system. FORCE is NOT a substitute for POWER.

The Antichrist will need your voluntary participation in his foul and evil system. And, his system will be so compelling that you will WANT to join it. Only the Holy Spirit and the knowledge of what the Bible says about this system will keep you from making that eternally fatal step of joining.

Remember what Jesus said:

…insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

– Matthew 24:24b

Therefore, as these days approach, you MUST focus on the truth. You MUST read your Bible. You MUST know all of it. You MUST seek to serve and obey God in every way possible. Your life must be centered on Jesus.

For Jesus to say, “…if it were possible… ,” it means that the deception that will spring upon us will be so incredible, so great, that you will be shaken to your very foundations. And, if the foundation of your life is not Christ, you will fall.

The bottom line is that the Antichrist won’t need to use force because his power will be in the voluntary acceptance of him and his foul system.

Jim Kunstler: Welcome To The Long Emergency | Zero Hedge

This is a truly excellent article from Jim Kunstler. In fact, it’s so good that I’m going to quote a big chunk of it. And, he’s explicitly attacking the Democrats and taking a smaller whack at the Republicans. After all, they are BOTH responsible, even though the Repubs have been a lesser cause.

Again, as I keep saying, WE DID THIS. You and me and your neighbor. We did this, and we’re going to pay for it in blood. Worse, it will be our children who will suffer the most. And, as we watch them suffer, we will need to remind ourselves that we are the villain in this catastrophe. And, that catastrophe isn’t far away.

Here is that first quote, from Jim:

Rather, the whole industrialized, wired-up world is rolling over into the greatest contraction ever witnessed. The only thing that’s postponed the recognition of this reality is the profligate borrowing of money, or shall we say “money” – data entries that pretend to represent secure wealth.

If you thought that the Great Depression was bad, just wait. This one will shake the world. But, Kunstler doesn’t end on that note. It’s just the beginning of his description of this self-inflicted farce:

Thus, the US has decided to get through the approaching winter by setting its house on fire. The two political parties alternately in charge of things are driving around the burning house, stopping at intervals to run Chinese Fire Drills. We call these “elections.” Both parties pretend that the burning house is not a problem. Mr. Trump, aka the Golden Golem of Greatness, has taken “ownership” of the rising temperature in the burning house. “Hey, at least you’re not freezing now.” He and his party have been piling all the furniture inside the house on the fire, to keep the heat up, rather heedless that flames are starting to shoot out of the attic.

And yes, that is EXACTLY what we have chosen to do. We have chosen to burn down our house, to keep ourselves warm. What a fitting analogy to our complete and utter stupidity. And, the Republicans have their own share of blame for this.

If it happens that the Democrats lose the midterm elections a few weeks ahead, they will jump up and down and holler that the elections were stolen from them, that somebody meddled and colluded to deprive them of victory, and that will amount to throwing just enough gasoline on the still-burning house for one final glorious burst of heat and flame before the rafters crash through the floor.

Welcome to the Long Emergency.

I don’t know how long this ’emergency’ will be, but history shows us that they can last for decades – even centuries. But, at the moment, I can’t see this ‘long emergency’ lasting less than thirty years.

Yes, you heard that right. Thirty years. Three oh. If I’m right – and I hope that I’m not – it will take decades to get back to where we are now, if that will even be possible. And, I might be way too optimistic in this assessment.

We ignored the signs, and now we pay the price.

Will you be ready for this?

Ben Stein: Mitch McConnell restaurant hecklers ‘exactly how the Nazis started out’ – Washington Times

Ben Stein makes an excellent point:

“I am a big student of World War II and the rise of the Nazi Party, and this is exactly how the Nazis started out,” he added.

The only difference is that there’s no one figure who has captured the allegiance of these brown shirts. When that happens, there will literally be Hell to pay – because people will die in the thousands, then tens of thousands, before ramping up to millions.

Thanks, Common Core: ACT Scores for Class of 2018 Worst in Decades | Trending

I could only read the first part. It was too depressing. America has literally become a nation of drooling idiots.

Please remember that these ‘standardized’ tests have been dumbed down. It was a lot harder to get a high score, back in the early ’80s when I was taking the SAT. Now, it’s a whole lot easier to ‘ace’ the test.

It’s as if America chose to destroy herself.

Broadcast TV Hits Record Percentage of LGBTQ Regulars | Hollywood Reporter

Here is another reason why America is lost.

If Americans refused to watch shows that portray homosexuality in a positive light, they wouldn’t run these shows. If Americans refused to watch shows that glorify fornication, they wouldn’t run these shows on TV.

IF CHRISTIANS refused to watch these shows, they might not be running on air. And yes, that would probably happen.

If every Christian in America acted together to say no to these evils, these evils would be forced to retreat. The same goes for politicians of every kind. Universities, too.

If every Christian said that they would NOT participate in ANYTHING foul or evil, they would be a ‘monolithic’ bloc that would be listened to. It wouldn’t stop the evil, but it would force it back into the shadows.

And, that’s just a secular analysis.

In areas of the spirit, evil would be soundly defeated if Christians behaved according to what the Bible commanded them to behave. There is power and safety in obeying God. But, the Christians of America chose to vicariously enjoy the sins of the flesh.

They had pleasure in those that do them.

Here is what Paul said in Romans:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

– Romans 1:32

Romans 1 isn’t talking about the unsaved people of the world. No, Romans 1 is talking about CHRISTIANS! Paul was talking about those who KNOW GOD!

And, we are seeing Christians fall into the sins described in that first chapter of Romans.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+1&version=KJV

Why did we do this?

I ask that question, but I know the answer. In the 1800s proud men rose up and laid the foundations of our fall. They built the seminaries that would preach a permissive christ. And yes, I use the lower case, because the christ that they taught was a false-christ. An antichrist.

Worse, we sent our precious children to these schools, and as the foul institutions of unlearning descended further and further into disobedience, the churches that hired these young men to preach for them descended also. And, it was our pride that started this.

We wanted doctors of theology to lead our churches. We demanded ORDINATIONS. If you weren’t ordained by this or that ‘seminary’, you were anathema.

My favorite pastor was ostracized because he never went to seminary. Because he was never ‘ordained’. But, he’s my favorite pastor because he’s led by the spirit and not by some moron who gave him a cap and a gown.

And, I know of one cowardly pastor who has neglected his flock to pursue his Th.D.

I liked that pastor. I had respect for him. But, instead of submitting to God, he has chosen to submit to men. And John N, if you are listening, I’m talking to you.

2018 10 21 John Haller’s Prophecy Update – “Breaking News” OR “I Know Bacon” – YouTube

This is an excellent example of why you should listen to John Haller every week. He’s a clear-thinking brother in Christ who really sees things clearly. And, he has a stronger stomach and a great heart. I could never have gone to that ‘Christ At The Checkpoint’ conferance without losing my cool.

And, the range of topics that John speaks on is excellent. So, subscribe to the Fellowship Bible Chapel Youtube channel and catch John’s presentations.

2,100 mostly unarmed Guard troops on border as Trump vows to send more to stop migrant caravan

Notice the picture in this article. John Haller made an excellent point that I’m not hearing anyone else make:

It is impossible for this many people to walk the distance that they claim to be walking.

Somebody – a lot of somebodies – is transporting these people. And, feeding them. And, housing them. It takes a lot of logistical planning to get an army like this from point A to point B.

The people behind this need to be uncovered and brought down.

The Truth About the Honduran Caravan! – YouTube

Stefan Molyneux is good at doing deep dives into the facts and pulling out important points. And, without realizing it, he agrees with John Haller.

This ‘caravan’ is a direct threat the America’s sovereignty. If the US lets this ‘caravan’ through, it’s the end of the US. The only question that Stefan was unable to answer was:

Who is funding this caravan.

This kind of thing takes money, and someone is making it happen.

We haven’t figured it out, but I’m sure that someone will.

The Open Border Activists Behind the Illegal Immigrant Caravans – Capital Research Center

So, the ‘organizers’ of this ‘caravan’ are being uncovered. So far, ‘Pueblo Sin Fronteras’ (People Without Borders) has been identified as organizing this ‘caravan’. And, with a name like that, you can bet that George Soros is involved.

Confirmed: Open Borders Group Behind Illegal Alien Caravan Is Linked to Soros’s Open Society

Sure enough. They are. With all his efforts to ‘latinize’ the US, we should ‘latinize’ ol’ Georges name to Jorge (pronounced HORE-hay). Yes. Jorge Soros. It has a kind of ring to it.

O’Keefe Indignant at Nat Conf on the #1A: “I don’t seek your recognition, I seek your distribution.” – YouTube

Well done, James O’Keefe. Very well done. He went into the den of thieves and called them what they were. Journalists have sold their souls for a case of scotch and a stool at the bar. They have earned the eternal disdain of clear thinking people everywhere.

How dare they lift their heads up and claim that they work for the highest good. They are lying liars of the worst kind – speaking lies that sound like truth.

Sen Heitkamp Dir. Details Bait & Switch “… when she gets elected she’s going to be super liberal. – YouTube

Remember this name: Heidi Heitkamp. She’s a lying liar. She’s a two-faced socialist that appears to be moderate so that she can keep power and destroy America.

Oh, she might not ‘intend’ to destroy America. But, that’s what she will be doing.

And, Hannity is talking about Project Veritas. Well done, O’Keefe.

Just be careful, James. You swim in shark-infested waters.

Bill Warner PhD: Muslim Candidates – YouTube

This is a depressing video.

Why?

Because Dr. Warner lays out all the things that Americans MUST DO, if America is to survive the Islamic invasion of US politics.

But John, (you might say) that doesn’t sound depressing!

No, the depressing part is the realization that the average American will not and does not care enough to follow these suggestions. I doubt that ANYONE – except for a tiny, insufficient handful – will even try to do these things.

Defending America from these enemies from within isn’t that hard. It really isn’t. But, Americans are too lazy and uncaring.

America is lost.

Can TRUMP make EUROPE follow HIM? – VisualPolitik EN – YouTube

Okay, this is an important video. Simon Whistler actually lays it all out with as much accuracy as you can manage in a thirteen minute video. It really does describe the number one problem that Iran has.

America has them in a choke hold. The only question is…

What will the Mullahs in Tehran do about this?

Actually, there’s not much they CAN do about this, except look for allies. And, if those allies want to go to war… well, that’s what they’ll do.

Apple boss takes aim at ‘weaponization’ of customer data

I am surprised at how ethical Steve Jobs was. When people wanted him to allow pornography on the iPhone, he angrily told them that if people want pornography, they can buy an Android phone. And, it looks like Apple has worked hard to keep data private on iPhones and elsewhere.

And, when Steve was dying, he made sure to set a course for Apple, that they should follow. Whether they do that, is hard to say.

I have always admired Steve’s absolute brilliance. He knew was he was doing, and he was the reason for Apple’s success. When they replaced him, Apple began to fail. When they brought him back, it took off.

It was towards the end of my finance career, when I heard that Steve was negotiating a return to Apple. At the time, Apple was in so much trouble that there were rumors that it was going to be bought by IBM.

Well, when I heard that Steve was coming back, I told the partners in the investment firm to put all their money, and all the money of their clients into Apple. They refused.

I eventually left the company and became a professional writer. But, I still remember that moment in time when I made my ‘Big Call’. No one listened, but that’s okay. That wasn’t the only good call that I made.

Of course, I made my share of bad calls, so don’t think of me as some kind of genius. I’m not. But, I was at the right time and place to see how significant Steve Jobs was.

I’m just sorry that he was still a Buddhist when he died. Being in Christ cannot compare to ANY of the accomplishments of Steve. Yes, he was hugely successful. He was an amazing man. He was brilliant. He even had some ethics – at least, towards the end of his life.

But, I would never, ever trade all that he had for the one thing that I have – life in Christ.

They say that everyone has his price. And, I have mine. And, there’s only One who can offer eternal life. And, He is the truest love that there is.

Okay, I wasn’t expecting to say all that, but I’m glad that I did.

Apple’s Tim Cook makes blistering attack on the ‘data industrial complex’ | TechCrunch

Here’s more on what inspired me to write the above.

Phelim McAleer – The Gosnell Movie #4084 – YouTube

I mentioned the Gosnell movie last week, and you will find more information on this movie from the writer and producer of this film. Kermit Gosnell is a psychopath who murdered a minimum of 100 women and children over the course of thirty years. And, it’s probable that he murdered far, far more. And, the government knew what he was doing – and did nothing.

But, he was caught because he was busted for selling opioids illegally. When the police saw all the dead bodies, they couldn’t ignore the obvious.

Yet, no one in the mainstream media will cover this. No one.

This is America kids. It is a blood-soaked nation awaiting the judgment of God.

Do you want to stick around for God’s punishment of the United States?

Real or Fake Bombs? Trump Will Stop Caravan, Economic Update | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

Greg Hunter deserves a top spot in your weekend YouTube viewing/listening. Here’s an excerpt from his write up:

There have been nearly a dozen so-called bombs sent to top Democrats around the country mainly on the east coast. None of them were detonated. I say “so-called” because police are reporting that many of the bombs “could not have exploded.” White powder sent with some of the packages also turned out to be harmless. What gives? Law enforcement is treating this as a real threat, as they should. They are going to get to the bottom of this. Is this an attempt by an idiot wacko to hurt people, or is this an attempt by desperate Democrats to garner positive attention and play the victim for the midterm elections. Many around the internet are calling this a total hoax.

Greg is a good guy and always worth listening to – even though a couple of his guests can be a bit ‘looney tunes’ (if you know what I mean).

Facebook ‘could collapse’ if election scandals keep coming, author warns | Metro News

Mrs. Little shared a post about a doctor on her own Facebook page, and then posted it again on a public forum. Facebook declared that the public post was ‘spam’ and deleted it. And, it was just about Chinese Medicine. And, the post was in Chinese.

Facebook is being incredibly stupid. They are arbitrarily claiming posts are spam for absolutely no discernible reason. It’s as if they’ve decided to shoot themselves in the foot, and work upward.

It’s time for Facebook to stop being stupid.

Sir Philip Green named in Parliament as businessman at centre of Britain’s #MeToo scandal

Okay, so NOW we know who this dirtbag is. And, you will notice that the only people in Britain with freedom of speech are Members of Partialment (MP). If you aren’t an MP, you can’t speak, if the government forbids you from speaking.

And, it’s this kind of repression that allows corruption and tyranny to flourish.

It’s also why Tommy Robinson could be tortured with impunity. The judge who did this to him, and the government officials who helped, will not suffer at all, in any way, for what they did to Tommy. In fact, they might even get a promotion.

Antibiotic ‘Trojan horse’ could defeat superbugs causing global medical crisis, trial finds | The Independent

So, bacteria love iron, and our bodies respond to a bacterial infection by reducing the amount of iron in the area where the bacteria are present.

Does this mean that you should avoid iron supplements if you have a bacterial infection?

Dunno.

I’m just glad that the pharmaceutical companies are back doing research on antibiotics. They spent too much time on other drugs and ignored the threat of bacteria.

Unfortunately, it’s probably too late to turn back this threat of death by bacterial infection.

China Targets Control Over Internet of Things for Spying, Business

CORRUPTION AND THE MILITARY TAKEOVER TO SOLVE IT

What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this. Corruption is ALWAYS how republics and kingdoms fall – and how the military takes over.

Remember the generals that surround Trump.

This was not an accident.

However, please take note that public pressure for a military takeover never happens until people suffer economic and financial stress. So, don’t expect this ‘takeover’ to happen until the economy turns sharply downward. The military will not want to see a repeat of the French Revolution.

TOMMY ROBINSON BACK ON TRIAL

What the UK did to Tommy Robinson is sick and twisted. He did NOT break the law in any way, and his summary imprisonment is a vile and evil act of psychopathic judge and a psychopathic government.

Recently, after a horrific two months in prison, where he suffered brutal treatment, Tommy was released. We praised God and thought that the worst was over. But, such was not to be. They are now hauling him back in front of a judge, attempting to put him back in prison, to finish the job. They want him dead.

Remember, they put Tommy in a prison that had the most violent Muslim gangs. They put him in a prison where the most violent offenders were. They deliberately put him in a place where he was guaranteed to be killed. And, they are attempting to do it again.

If they are successful, Tommy will probably be murdered in jail, and that murder will be on the hands of the British government.

More importantly, it’s a symbol and a symptom of what is happening. First in the UK, and then elsewhere.

Welcome to the pathological, psychopathic, diabolical Islamisation of your country – wherever you are.

I’m afraid that we are all Tommy Robinson.

Tommy Robinson has “breaking news” on his Oct 23 trial – YouTube

Tommy Robinson got thrown in jail, immediately. No parole. No justice. For speaking about publicly available information. But, foul and evil men that were convicted of RAPING YOUNG GIRLS OVER AND OVER, but they were released onto the street – with one man who flees to Pakistan. Released for a year to continue to terrorize their victims. And, create more victims.

20 men were released after committing horrific rapes, while Tommy was tortured in prison on a CIVIL OFFENSE. A CIVIL OFFENSE that no one went to jail for in 70 years. And, the conviction was illegal.

Britain is so lost. And, I’m so sorry.

Tommy Robinson: Media wants ME to apologize for Muslim grooming gangs – YouTube

I am absolutely disgusted by the foul and evil British media. They are just as bad as the American media – if not worse. And, what these girls suffered, while the police and media did nothing and said nothing… is a crime.

Ezra Levant: A WIN for Tommy Robinson — but it’s STILL not over – YouTube

It JUST. NEVER. ENDS.

In Britain, ‘Contempt of Court’ is a civil infraction and no journalist has gone to jail for that in seventy years. Yet, they put Tommy in jail – in a drumhead trial – for merely repeating publicly available information. He did NOT interfere in any way, and that was made official, by the courts.

Other journalists whe DID interfere with that trial… who actually interfered …were merely given a fine.

Tommy did nothing, and they tried to kill him. Other journalists knowingly interfered, and they were given a slap on the wrist.

Will there EVER be justice in Britain?

Tommy Robinson’s POWERFUL statement of evidence: Oct 23, 2018 – YouTube

This was the statement that caused the judge in this case to step back and throw it into the hands of the Attorney General of Britain.

When you listen to this, you will be truly disgusted with the British government for instituting this travesty of justice. And, it looks like the judge backed off because he realized just how awful this situation is.

Tommy Robinson: Media slanders my supporters – YouTube

I wasn’t going to post this until I heard Tommy say what the media were reporting about his trial and the events surrounding it.

If I had not already known that the media are lying liars of the worst kind… if I had not seen it with my own eyes in Jerusalem …I’m not sure that I would have believed it.

To those of you who are British patriots, you’d better get yourself together. Your country is dead, if you don’t do something NOW.

 

THE WAR AGAINST FREEDOM OF SPEECH

It’s hard to believe that I need to actually make this a category, but I guess that I need to.

I am truly horrified by this concerted attempt by the mainstream media and social media to shut down anyone that disagrees with them. This is sick and twisted, and it’s an attempt to limit your ability to obtain the kinds of facts that you need to see the future clearly.

And yes, they really do want to control what and how you think.

Big Tech Snuffing Free Speech; Google’s Poisonous ‘Dragonfly’

Here’s a quote that illustrates the problem that Google faces:

Arguably, big tech companies, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, therefore carry a responsibility to ensure that their platforms are equally accessible to all voices in that national conversation. As private commercial entities, the social media giants are not prima facie legally bound by the First Amendment to the US Constitution, and are free to set their own standards and conditions for the use of their platforms. Ideally, those standards should be applied equally to all users, regardless of political or other persuasion. If, however, these companies choose what to publish and what not to publish, they should be subject to the same licensing and requirements as media organizations.

The key part of that quote is this one:

If, however, these companies choose what to publish and what not to publish, they should be subject to the same licensing and requirements as media organizations.

Because they are censoring political speech, they are now a news media organization, instead of an independent platform for discovering information. If THAT is what they are, then they can be sued for what information is available on their platform.

For instance, if I discover a search result that defames me, I can sue Google for allowing that search result to appear. However, if Google does NOT suppress speech in any way, then they are not vulnerable to being sued by those who feel defamed.

I’m not sure why people haven’t picked up on that, and run with it. For instance, here’s this quote:

PragerU claimed that “Google and YouTube’s use of restricted mode filtering to silence PragerU violates its fundamental First Amendment rights under both the California and United States Constitutions,” YouTube, for instance, restricted a video by a pro-Israel Muslim activist, discussing how best to resist hatred and anti-Semitism, as “hate speech”. The US District Court Judge in the case, Lucy Koh, however, dismissed PragerU’s claims because Google, as a private company, is not subject to the First Amendment. “Defendants are private entities who created their own video-sharing social media website and make decisions about whether and how to regulate content that has been uploaded on that website,” Koh wrote. PragerU has appealed the decision.

It’s time to classify Google as a media organization, and then sue them for defamation and monopolistic ‘restraint of trade’.

ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COLLAPSE

We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.

In fact, it has begun already.

By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.

A person or organization who is EVIL ANNNND STUPID.

People who are just stupid, deserve our compassion. My heart goes out to them, because their life is going to be painful until they stop being stupid.

But, those who are evil?

Well, I want them to repent. I really do. I do NOT want ANYONE who is evil to suffer an eternity in Hell. But, if they refuse to repent, I want them destroyed.

May the wrath of God be upon all who refuse to repent. May the blessings of God be upon those who turn from their wicked ways and acknowledge God.

oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith: America’s Social Depression Is Accelerating

Part of the reason why Matthew 24:7 will be fulfilled is because we expected more from reality than reality could deliver. We were not honest with ourselves. We were optimistic, when we should not have been.

Unfortunately, unrealistic expectations leads to rage and death. American society will continue its spiral downward into destruction, death and decay.

Because we did not value honesty over optimism.

That’s part of the first line of this article:

We need to value honesty above optimism. Once we can speak honestly, there is a foundation for optimism.

We valued optimism over honesty, so here we are.

ISRAEL

There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.

I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.

So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.

My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Because Israel and Israelis live the harsh reality of life, every day, all day, all year. The average European and American Jew has insulated themselves from reality and chosen to live in their utopian dreams of what might be.

We all must stop living in a dream world, and it’s one of the reasons why I like living outside of the US and Europe. The rest of the world doesn’t have the luxury of living a fantasy.

    Look, pal, I read Little Red Riding Hood, Mary Poppins, Snow White, Cinderella and a bunch more stories when I was a child, and you know what, everybody, except the really bad guys, got to live happily ever after. Not only that, but whenever I put on these glasses https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse2.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.YgXttY8fYLIuxeX8oC1-sAHaEd%26pid%3D15.1&f=1 (insert picture over gooblygook), I see bluebirds flying over rainbows. Everyday. That’s right. We’re talking golden meadow muffins here. Now that I got that off my chest, I feel soooooo much better….

    Something shocking happened in Alberta this week. No, PM Trudeau did not announce his resignation, but it was a good start. Our education minister, somehow managed to figure out how to compromise for the good of the people. The Alberta government ditched the Canadian version of Common Core. Going back to rote arithmetic. And teaching what is going on in our own backyards, not what is happening half the world away. Yes, that did actually happen. We are a looong way from the educational standards of our forefathers, but it is a start.

    Proud of child #1. His ADHD impulsivity is being channeled towards the promotion of truth and justice. He successfully stood up to older bullies on the playground who were teasing others, not just one on one, but multiple bullies, and stated confidently in the classroom to his teacher and classmates that we do not come from apes and we are not animals. They tried to “correct” him, but he did not back down.

    Here is a PowerPoint from an interesting video. I have not vetted it, but if what is presented is true, the theory of evolution is not what about what we’ve been told: https://www.ctvn.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/1407-Extinction-of-Evolution-compressed-44.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3h-ALSd4qhujh3PFLIpMiZoc-Wf5rfX22XV1YRZApzrjx8ohHcTFf6lv8.

  2. john,
    Thank you for work and thoughts. I noticed your comment on “Trump not a Christian” One could say most Christian’s today are not biblical Christian either, One might say Jesus was not a Christian either? Cyrus was not a Christian, nor was Moses or Elijah. One does not have to be Christian to be a leader especially a leader of a nation. David was not Christian either but God can and will/has used all in the end for His purpose. Remember God is not done with any of us yet while we are still breathing and I can’t see in a heart and what God has planned as Jesus/God is the author and finisher of our faith/life. I hope and Love hopes always!

    • Hi Mark Pfeil,

      You missed my point completely.

      Yes, I understand that leaders are placed by God, for God’s purposes – even though they are not godly men. By the way, this applies to all leaders even evil ones like Obama.

      The point was made for those who persist in claiming that Trump is a Christian. He is not, and there is no evidence that he has ever been. It’s not necessary for him to be a Christian, but it is certainly not good for any of us to claim that he is, when he is not.

      Unfortunately, I sense from your comment a willingness to believe that God intends to bless America. I’m afraid that there is no evidence whatsoever to prove that idea is correct. The sins of America as so huge that they blot out any goodness left in her. And, the sins of the church are even worse.

      You may hope for a revival, and I applaud such a desire. A revival would certainly delay America’s fate, and I would truly support such a thing. But, until I see evidence that American Christians are turning away from their sins and back to God, there is no hope for America.

      Please, as I said in my title piece, do not choose optimism over honesty, Mark.

      Yours in Christ,

  3. John,
    For some reason I’m not receiving your shockcast emails any more. They stopped coming about a month ago. I can still read your weekly shock cast by going to OmegaShock.com and clicking on the link.

    • Hi Rich,

      When I saw your comment I dropped what I was doing and started testing. Sure enough, Microsoft is blocking The Shock Letter. They used to be blocking Omega Shock, but I was able to get them to stop that. I am now working hard to get Microsoft to do the same about the newsletter.

      Part of the problem is that the newsletter sits on a completely different server. Therefore, I have to go through a separate process to get The Shock Letter cleared. Unfortunately, it will take time for that to happen.

      It is maddening that Microsoft is doing this, but I’m not sure that we can claim censorship here. The number of evil people attempting to take over servers and send the most vile spam imaginable is both huge and horrifying.

      I can only pray that God would give these spammers no rest until they repent and seek to undo the damage that they have done.

      Thank you, Rich, for letting me know about this. I will be doing my very best to get this fixed, especially since you are NOT the only one.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  4. John Little,

    * Thank you for posting my letters. I agree with you about the ability of our Guide, the Lord Himself, to clarify all things. John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
    * OmegaShock under attack?
    Crazy. Pray about this, stay safe, may the Lord protect you and Mrs. Little. Amen

  5. Okay, I’m trying out yet ANOTHER security option. We’ll see how this works. For those that have had trouble, I apologize. – JL

    • Sorry about that, MM. There was a technical glitch. At least, I hope that it’s the one that I was wrestling with. If it is a NEW one, I shall scream. There is a special place in Hell where the dirtbags banging on this site will be, when they die, and there’s a part of me that wants to send them there personally. With my own bare hands. – JL
