I love teachers, and I am one. My wife is one. Teachers are great, and we need them. But, you should never trust what they teach you.
And yes, that includes myself.
There are too many corrupt, lying liars who are posing as good-hearted and well-meaning pastors, seminarians, theologians, professors, instructors, writers and YouTubers. And, some of these ‘lying liars’ don’t know that they are a source of lies. They have deceived themselves, and are passing that deception on to you. And, that deception is killing us.
So, the best thing that I can do is encourage you to never trust me, or anyone who is in my position.

Never Trust a Teacher
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/gTPaz2UJ324
I have a thing about deception. I really do. I hate it. I despise it. And, I want to stamp it out, wherever I see it. And, I am horrified at the the thought that I could be a source of deception.
Nothing scares me more, than the thought that I could lead you into deception. And, there is very little that scares me. I’ve had bombs go off down the road. Guns have been pointed at me. I’ve been arrested (over a misunderstanding). I’ve been thrown out of High School. I’ve even had Mrs. Little frown at me!
(When a man loves a woman,
he gives her the power
to scare him to DEATH.)
But, there is nothing that scares me more, than the thought that I would cause you damage in how you think, what you think, how you believe and Who you believe in. I will stand before the Lord one day and answer for every word that I write and say. If I should lead you astray, I will suffer loss for that. I am also concerned about YOUR welfare.
If I say or write something that causes you to make a bad decision, you could suffer great harm. And, you could pass on the errors that I told you, spreading that harm far and wide. And, I know that I am capable of doing something like this. And THAT is why I implore you to never trust me. Never.
Be Able To Challenge What I Write And Say
Always, always check to see if I am right. I know that I talk about some pretty difficult stuff, and you might not be able to check on everything for yourself. But, my hope is that your understanding will grow to the point where you can challenge some of what I write and say.
Some of you have been able to do that, from day one. And, I count it a blessing and honor to have such clear-thinking readers who can point out errors – or, um… the ‘possible’ errors. My hope is that I always give such valuable readers the honor and respect that they deserve.
The Sophisticated Deceiver Would Say This
Of course, as I write this, I also know that a sophisticated deceiver, would write all that I have written here, and more. The best deceivers will also claim that you should never trust them, and that you should think for yourself. So, don’t be lured into complacency, just because I warn you against trusting me.
Please remember that we will all stand before the Lord one day, and answer for what we do or say. You won’t be able to blame me for deceiving you or tricking you into disobeying God. You won’t be able to claim that I taught you wrongly, since YOU are responsible for learning how to tell the difference between truth and falsehood.
Your Responsibility As A Christian
Your responsibility as a Christian is to love the truth. That responsibility cannot be delegated to anyone else, if you wish to be a responsible and obedient follower of Christ. The alternative is to remain a child in spiritual things. And, that’s pretty much the main point.
Do you wish to remain a vulnerable child in all things spiritual? (And, physical?)
Then, ignore everything that I’m saying here. If you want to remain immature in the spiritual and physical, place your trust in your fallible pastors and teachers. If you want to remain stunted and ignorant, you can – and most people do.
Yes, that’s right, being ignorant and deceived is a choice. You can choose to never question what you hear in church. You can choose to never question what you are taught in school. And, we can see all around us a society that doesn’t question what it reads in newspapers or sees on their TV screens.
Unfortunately, if you are old enough, the choice to be – and become – ignorant and deceived might have been made so long ago, that you do not remember that choice. But, I can see that choice, whenever someone complains about my criticism of the great Dr. So-and-So. I know of too many pastors who are horrified at the thought that I would disagree with their favorite theologian. When I see that, I can tell that a choice to be ignorant and deceived has been made – but, so far in the past, that they do not recall making it.
I am reminded of this by a rather surprising event that happened a couple of days ago. In fact, as I write this, it was literally yesterday.
Bruce left a comment about what I had said last week. He said:
This week you referenced the lineage back to the early church that your Baptist church enjoys and I was curious if there are reference materials, books or even internet sites that deal with the history of what I have heard called the “Remnant Church”.
I have tried to not mention this ‘lineage’ too often, since people can place more importance on THAT, than on what Christ commands of us. And, I have had to undo a tremendous amount of false teaching, because certain writers – over a hundred years ago – started to emphasize something too much. In fact, they started to replace sound Biblical understanding with the less sound, human logic.
The men responsible for this bit of Bible twisting were:
Both of those men had good intentions and a lot of truth to back those intentions, but they made the mistake of using human wisdom to make the Bible say something that it does not say.
What I am talking about is Landmarkism, and Bruce’s comment led me back to ideas that I had not thought about in years. So, I did a search and clicked this link:
I was a bit surprised that Wikipedia would have an entry about the Landmark Baptists. There wasn’t a lot in that entry, but it was still a good jumping off point. And, I recognized a lot of names that had been bandied about in my younger years. My Dad certainly knows a lot more than I do and had some of his own battles with their acolytes.
Then, when I got to the bottom of that page, I saw a name that I was very familiar with:
LeRoy Benjamin Hogue
I was more than a little surprised. There cannot be very many LeRoy Hogues out there – especially a LeRoy Hogue who can write a dissertation on a uniquely Baptist idea. It had to be him, and sure enough… it was.
Who am I referring to?
My pastor here in Taiwan. And, he is only one of very few men that I can call pastor without reservation. He is a fantastic example of what every pastor should be – kind, patient, gentle, passionate, a leader, someone who loves the Lord with all his heart and loves each and every one of us. Our church here in Taiwan has been greatly blessed to have him as our pastor, and our loss will be great, when the Lord sends him back to Oklahoma.
Here is that dissertation that he wrote more than 50 years ago:
Like so many historical movements, it has its roots in the mid-19th century. I partly blame the steam-powered printing press, that made printing so cheap and easy. But, the real blame lies with the teachers and pastors and writers who encouraged a trust in people, and not a trust in God and the Bible.
Never Be A Parosh (Pharisee)
I don’t want to get too involved in explaining the errors of Landmarkism. There are plenty of resources out there that can do that for me. And, the Landmark Baptists have a lot of things right, so I’m not really bashing them. I actually agree that our spiritual lineage is unbroken and should be unbroken. In fact, my biggest problem with this movement is that most of them are hard-hearted Paroshim (Pharisees). And, they taught me to be one of them.
Please. Never be a Pharisee (Parosh). Never. The Christian Paroshim have earned the wrath of God, because they lost their ability to love, to forgive and to understand the core principles of the Bible. As I said to Bruce:
Some of those guys are REALLY mean-spirited.
They know their Bible, but they became far too proud of themselves. And, I fear that many of them have lost everything.
How did they do that?
By placing their trust in a teacher.
These men did not ask themselves whether there were any errors in this Landmark idea. They didn’t stop to ask whether they were inserting human logic, and ignoring the logic of God. And, you might think that their errors are small. And, I would agree with you.
Just remember that big errors ALWAYS start out small. ALWAYS. In fact, you can’t get to The Big Lie, without the conditioning that you receive from a lot of small lies. When I wrote about Rick Wiles a couple of weeks ago, I knew that he didn’t become a deceiver overnight. That level of deception takes time and starts out small. And, Rick Wiles is REALLY mean-spirited.
What Rick Wiles Did To Zach
What Rick did to Zach Drew was despicable. How dare he trash a young man like that. Sure, Zach was probably unwise. You might even claim that Zach was incredibly foolish. But, his errors and foolishness were a private thing, and I’m not even certain that it happened the way that Rick described. Here is what I mean:
I fast-forwarded to just after the 14 minute mark, where Rick lays into Zach. And, I am horrified by this. The arrogance, pride and venom in the next few minutes just flies out of Rick’s mouth.
Never listen to a man that is full of so much poison.
Without Love, You Have Nothing
I do not care about how much truth someone like Rick has…
I don’t care about that person’s intelligence or his command of the facts…
…If that person doesn’t have love.
This should be our guide:
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
And if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing.
Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil;
rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth;
beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
– 1 Corinthians 13:1-7 – (ASV)
note: I’m using the ASV, instead of the KJV, because people have stumbled over the KJV’s use of ‘charity’ instead of ‘love’. We don’t use ‘charity’ as a synonym for love anymore, and the original Greek word is ‘agape’ – pronounced like ‘ah-GAH-pee’.
I’m sorry, Rick. But, you don’t have any love. I’m sorry, my Landmark Baptist brothers, few of you have any love. I’m sorry, post-trib brothers, but few of you have any love. I’m sorry, but if you follow a teacher that does not have any love, you will be infected by their lack of love. And then, you will lose everything.
I HAD A TEACHER: A Bitter And Personal Example
I have one more example, and it’s an especially bitter one.
I had a teacher. A man who I cared about a great deal. In fact, both he and his wife were very close to me and taught me much in the early years of my Christian walk. His wife was very knowledgeable, but a false teacher who valued herself more than God. This man’s wife had much truth, but no love. She twisted his faith in Christ and even poisoned his relationship with other Christians – and even their children.
Then, one day, she left him. And, for ten years he was free from the poison that she injected into his spiritual life. He began to fellowship with other Christians. He began to attend a church that was led by a loving and kind pastor. He began to flourish as a follower of Christ. His relationship with his children improved. And, for those ten years, he was a true follower of Christ in every way that I could tell.
Then, his wife came back to him.
I remember the day when I heard that she was back. I was worried, and my worries came true in every way. My teacher stopped his fellowship with other Christians. He stopped going to church. His relationship with his children began to fail again.
My old teacher is still alive, but he has lost everything. Yes, he has the woman that he loves. But, he sacrificed his relationship with God. He and his wife think that they are Christian. They’ll certainly tell you this with great conviction. But, their fruit is poison.
I Have Learned The Hard Way
I have learned in the worst way possible, never to trust a teacher. No matter how much you might love and respect your teachers… No matter how right they are in so many areas… you must always test the truth of what they say. Always.
Never. NEVER accept what someone says at face value. NEVER. Always check to see if a certain thing is true. Read the Bible for yourself, so that – when a spiritual ambush occurs – you will have the tools and armor to defend yourself.
My own spiritual life was poisoned by this wife of my teacher. And, my teacher allowed it. And, for far too long, my fruit was bitter and damaging to others. My life was not pointing people to Christ. I was not reflecting the light of Christ into a dark and dying world.
I am grateful that the Lord dragged me away from this couple and set me on a different path. If what I write or say, is of ANY value to you, it is only by the Grace of God. I am a living, walking, talking example of why you should…
…NEVER. TRUST. A. TEACHER.

THIS WEEK’S RESEARCH
My research sources are pretty wide ranging, and their number keep growing. So, instead of listing all of my sources, let me list the ones that deserve special mention:
A big thank you to all who sent me articles. I appreciate all of it.
IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…
Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.
And yes, these are pretty serious.
Remember when I told you last week about The Big Lie and Big Liars?
Well, the Jordan Peterson and Cathy Newman ‘debate’ has demonstrated the hollowness of the Left. And, here is our favorite – at least MY favorite – debunker of Islam (ie., polemicist). David Wood has come through with his own excellent analysis of how the Left attacked Jordan Peterson, reacted to Jordan Peterson and then how they will pillory and vilify Jordan Peterson.
It is an exceptionally well done presentation that you should listen to. I have been on the receiving end of these tactics for decades. But, David puts these strategems into words that are extremely concise and understandable. He describes what they are doing and how the do it. And, this should help you see all the more clearly, when you or someone else become a target.
I get these attacks on almost a weekly basis.
How about you?
And, here is an analysis of ‘The Great Massacre at Channel Four’, by Bill Whittle.
It’s the FIREWALL. And, it’s an excellent rundown of all the reasons for why Leftist emotionalism is just another kind of insanity.
Hmmm… if true – and it certainly SOUNDS true – Assange will be in a position to assist in the takedown of the Deep State.
Who broke him out of durance vile?
The US military – according to sources that may (or may not) be reliable.
We could be seeing fireworks, fairly soon.
When only a few people can control so much of what you see, the ability for psychopaths to take over, is huge. And, this is just ONE example.
The name of that ‘example’?
A company run by a devious lying liar, German Calas. And, his company is called Devumi. People like this guy and his foul company, are destroying what is left of society. They are creating a fake reality that people believe too quickly.
It’s time to bring honesty back, but that won’t happen until rubble and dead bodies are strewn about the streets.
Lies kill, and this lying liar will have buckets of blood on his hands, before it’s all over.
Here’s an update on the fraudulent follower factory fiasco.
Do you honestly think that Twitter cares that there were ‘fake followers’?
OF COURSE NOT!!!
Twitter needs as much activity on their network as possible, to be able to boast to their advertizers that an ad on Twitter is worth the money.
Twitter is being FORCED to do this.
The Red Dragon.
I am reluctant to make the comparison between China and the seven headed and ten crowned dragon that gave power to The Beast. But, I see China’s influence growing and reaching out into the world. China is NOT reluctant to use immoral means to get what it wants. Chinese empires – of which, this is but the latest – have NEVER been concerned with the ‘luxury’ that we call morality.
So, such a psychopathic entity as the Chinese Communist Party, should be of concern to all of us, as it gains a bigger reach, across the globe.
Please also notice something else. And, this is probably more important than you think, so pay attention.
There’s a picture of Xi Jinping approaching the podium to give one of his hugely long-winded serm… er …speeches.
What is he wearing?
Please remember that I’ve spent 22 years in Asia. I have (reluctantly) traveled the world. How you dress is a sign of your cultural hommage and allegiance. Mr. Xi (pronounced ‘she’) and the rest of the Chinese Communist Party is making a statement by how they dress. And, they know EXACTLY what they are doing, when they make that statement.
Please pay attention to this.
Chinese culture is not like our own and has a different way of dress, and you can find elements of that tradition even here in Taiwan.
Now, I just did a search for Mao Zedong’s pictures. I notice that he also was not wearing Chinese traditional dress. It was sort of a hybrid between Western dress and Chinese. It’s almost as if he was attempting to ‘bridge the gap’. He didn’t wear a ‘tie’, but his collar was ‘Western’.
When did China start this cultural shift towards the West?
He started out – as his predecessors – whering Mao’s hybrid clothing. But, he ended up, wearing Western clothing. I’m not going to bother pinning down the exact year, but it looks like the late ’70s or early ’80s.
Remember when Nixon ‘opened up China’ to the West?
Right. Not a coincedence.
However, that was (and is) a two way street. Opening up China to the West, also opens up The West to China. And, I am concerned about that influence. I see it at work, in my Little perch here in Taiwan. And, I see it moving out into the world.
After Ezekiel’s Fire (if I am right about Ezekiel’s Fire) we will see if China rises to take over more of the globe. It certainly would be natural for them to do so.
Oh, and I can’t end without making some mention of the horrifying publication where I saw this. The Washington Post is a horrifyingly stupid and moronic publication, and their ‘mast head’ proclaims that ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’.
Those morons are creating the darkness.
And, you just can’t fix stupid.
Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!
Please remember that the Republicans have their own lies that they are protecting. So, don’t rejoice overmuch. The Democrats are dirtbags. And, they are obvious dirtbags. The Republicans are just LESS obvious.
Please remember that.
Here is the last part of this article:
Like the Romans, we have become an empire, committed to fight for scores of nations, with troops on every continent, and forces in combat operations of which the American people are only vaguely aware.
“I didn’t know there were 1,000 troops in Niger,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham when four Green Berets were killed there. “We don’t know exactly where we’re at in the world, militarily, and what we’re doing.”
No, we don’t, Senator.
As in all empires, power is passing to the generals.
And what causes the greatest angst today in the imperial city?
Fear that a four-page memo worked up in the House Judiciary Committee may discredit Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russia-gate.
Did you just figure this out, Pat?
I truly wish that America was about goodness, righteousness and morality. I really do. Unfortunately, America has only been about those things, when forced by the American public to be those things.
Since the American public is no longer interested in ‘those things’, there is no one to force the government and military to BE those things.
Why are we no longer interested?
Because the Christians have corrupted themselves. And yes, the Body of Christ was the only thing blocking the rise of Empire. Now, we revel in the idea of Empire.
But, like the Roman Empire, we are about to reach the end of our rope. With the Romans, it was the gold and silver mines in Iberia. When they ran out, the Empire had to become more vicious. With the American Empire, it’s oil. And, it is running out.
Expect the American Empire to become far more vicious than we have ever seen.
However, if the Empire is to survive, it will need to retreat from some of her obligations.
Of course, I do not WANT the Empire to survive. I want the Empire to voluntarily give up her power and retreat to her borders. The Empire should give help to strategic assets, such as the Persian Gulf, Israel, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea.
Everyone else needs to stand on their own feet.
But, that won’t happen, so the Empire will turn more and more evil. Empires cannot be reformed. They can only be destroyed. And, it is rare for original ‘host’ of the Empire… it is rare for it to survive the fall of that Empire.
Britain was lucky. I’m not sure that America can expect to be as lucky.
And, for those of you with an interest in prophecy, you will want America to fall. You will want America to crash and even burn.
Because, if America continues down this path, she will either be The Beast, or the Beast Rider. Because I care about my country’s future, I wish neither for her. Therefore, I desire that she fall from her perch.
Whatever the outcome, many will die. Far too many.
If you want a good example of what we mean, when we say ‘Geopolitics’, this is it.
It’s also a depressing example of how corrupt Europe and the United States are. And stupid. And, short-sighted.
An Empire ruled by morons will not last ver long.
Alice Friedman reposted this article on her website, EnergySkeptic.com. It is a detailed view of what it takes to fight a war, when oil is not available.
Those who think that we can live without petroleum fuels… are fooling themselves and you. Peak Oil has come and gone. We are now on the downslope of the curve, although our current financial system has masked this problem.
Are you ready to go back to muscle power?
The Satanic New World Order is NOT ready, so they will fight hard to keep the petrochemicals coming – or, some reasonable substitute. But, YOU will suffer the consequences of their efforts.
Hitler could not have murdered and raped his way across Europe and Russia, if Americans had not supported him. This video is an overview of that story.
So, why is YouTube restricting this video?
How dare they do this?
People are starting to wake up to the fact that Facebook isn’t the kind of place that is welcoming and friendly. They sense the manipulation and assault on their values.
That’s not what this article says, but it is clear to me that a ‘revolt’ against Facebook is beginning. Every company goes through this – because they start to believe in their own invincibility. They start to believe the stories cooked up by their own marketing department. They forget where they came from.
So, they fall.
It happens to every company. Some experience this more quickly than others do. Others have enough connection to reality to keep themselves from tripping over their own hubris.
Did you notice that Apple began to make mistakes after Steve Jobs died?
Steve had a better grasp of reality than his successors. He always did, and I paid careful attention to the ups and downs of his career. My first computer was an Apple II+. And, I watched what Steve was doing, from that moment on.
It wasn’t a conscious decision. I was just interested in computer technology, and Apple was the best. It only stopped becoming the best, when Steve wasn’t running the company. Apple foundered on the shoals of reality, when they kicked Steve out in 1985. When they brought him back, Apple took off again.
And Zuckerberg is no Steve Jobs.
This is an interesting and pretty thorough analysis of the Las Vegas shooting, by Nathan Leal.
I think that you’ll find his questions to be interesting.
There’s something wrong with the story. What and how much, is hard to say at this moment.
ARTICLES OF NOTE
These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.
An interesting discussion about a wide range of topics about the New World Order.
The Lion’s Paw sign is six thousand years old?
That very well could be.
An interesting analysis, by Jerome Corsi, over the quality of intelligence being offered up by this QAnon guy – and over the intelligence itself. It sounds right.
We won’t know if it IS right, until much later.
Leftist dirtbag gets owned by someone who knows what he’s talking about.
This is what I’m talking about when I say that government and ‘conspiracies’ do NOT understand the implications of the technology that they are using. Please, do NOT overestimate the powers of those who oppose us. If anything, they are dumber that we are.
If I am smarter than anyone else, it can’t be THAT much, but I knew what was happening when I saw the first ‘free’ email accounts open up. I also saw the tracking mechanisms insert themselves into applications as a part of the routine diagnostics that programmers insert into their applications.
Companies would have very quickly taken advantage of those diagnostic routines to capture their customer habits. And, it’s a small step from ‘customer habits’ to ‘enemy habits’. And, your enemy can be ANYONE.
My hope is that people will wake up to what’s going on. Just try to keep the hysteria down as you do.
Sorry, but I’m not sympathetic.
The term that they should be looking for is ‘backlash’. They started it. And, they can’t seem to take the same kind of abuse that they’ve been dishing out.
Let me be clear that I do not – and never have – approve of harassment and threats. That’s wrong. It’s evil. And, people shouldn’t do that. So, I say, “a pox on both their houses.”
If you are engaging in threats or harassment, stop.
If you are a Google employee who is upset over the pushback tha tyou are receiving, shut up and sit down.
The Black Community needs to get its act together. They need to make a serious and deliberate change in how they view themselves.
If you think of yourself as a victim, you are a loser. And, you will always lose.
Lyndon Baines Johnson was one of – if not THE – most evil presidents that America ever had. He was THE president that set America’s course towards Empire. And, he is THE president that captured the Black Community. And, LBJ HATED black people.
I find it so ironic that the Black Community allowed itself to be enslaved by the people that hate them.
So, to all my black friends, GET YOUR POOP IN A GROUP, and STOP THINKING OF YOURSELF AS A VICTIM. If you need a community model to follow, look at the Jews or the East Asians.
You can do this. But, you need to work at it.
The alternative is to let everyone run over you.
Okay, THIS is how a revolution succeeds. When they get the military and police to be on the side of the revolutionaries.
The only question is… who will be the leader of this revolution?
I should put this in the moron section. The two morons who are proposing this, Nate Gentry and Daniel Ivey-Soto, deserve to be locked up with the criminally insane, or sent to Sweden (same thing).
How do you get this stupid?
I would be willing to believe that this is corruption, but that would be giving these two morons too much credit. You actually need an ability to think, if you are going to be corrupt.
Did you notice that they aren’t saying anything about how these oil companies are making money?
Good, because they aren’t. And THAT is the reason why this fracking boom will crash and burn. I wish that it wasn’t so, but this false optimism isn’t helping us prepare for a far darker future than anyone understands.
Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, kids.
So, you like your Starbucks coffee?
Well take a load of this bit of obscene news.
So, not only is Starbucks coffee overpriced, but they’re evil and disgusting.
This is sick. And, it’s not the first time that we’ve heard about this. Apparently, these stupid kids are jumping into the sack with each other every day, during the Olympics.
Sorry guys. Nothing special going on.
I would have heard about whether this annual drill is any more important than last year’s.
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.
Um… WOW. This is right up there with reports that people committed suicide by shooting themselves in the head. Twice.
Come on FBI. Field agents aren’t supposed to be this corrupt. We don’t want to believe that you guys are corrupt, too. We really don’t.
But, you aren’t leaving us any choice.
I think that we need a new hashtag, if we don’t already have one:
I spoke too soon. It’s already ‘trending’:
Bill Still referenced this article in a recent video, and it’s a strong indictment of the FBI. And there is one quote from this article that speaks volumes:
The FBI is infected beyond an immediate remedy.
I believe it, and you should too.
This is a somewhat older article – as in… almost two whole weeks ago. But, the point is a good one, and one that I have been making.
Trump needs to ally himself with the Pentagon, to take down Langley. And, it looks like this is exactly what he’s doing.
Yes, what DO Mr. Schiff and the Democrats have to hide, that they are so desperate to clamp down on this ‘memo’?
Ah, so the Red Shields are involved. And, they are Jesuit?
I’m not sure that ANYONE knows THAT, so be careful with such speculation. It’s not like the ‘Black Pope’ is going to let us know.
He was shocked? Really?
Was he born yesterday?
So no, he’s not telling us what he really believes. Hopefully, he’ll do something about what he claims to be so ‘shocking’.
Hold your nose, it’s the WaPo. But, they are actually providing some information here.
Of course, you can bet that the FBI was doing more than just ‘challenging accuracy’. They were trying to stop the memo from being released. The dirtbags running the FBI need to be fired.
This video indicates that there’s going to be a real housecleaning at the top of the FBI.
Will it work?
McCabe blew his stack?
Flipped his lid?
WHERE’S MY POPCORN!!
Good ol’ Andy ‘Dirtbag’ McCabe.
Never trust a weasel.
TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP
Right now, Trump is a distraction. Some call him savior. Others call him devil. And YOU are probably being distracted by all this.
Please don’t be. Trump is just a guy who wanted political power, and got it. He likes winning, and he won. He still likes winning, and he will try to keep doing so. He’s also smart, which means that he will probably succeed – at least, some of the time. But, he isn’t going to save America. He isn’t going to chart a new course. He isn’t going to make America great again. And, it’s becoming more and more clear that he has been lying to us.
The best that he will do, is not be as bad as the alternative. But, I’m afraid that he will be AS BAD as the alternative. He certainly looks like he’s selling Israel out.
Please get this into your head:
AMERICA IS LOST.
The sooner that you get this point, the better.
Those of you living outside of America already see this, and YOUR concern is the fallout from America’s fall. The only thing that I can point to, for you… is the Bible and Ezekiel’s Fire.
Well done, Mr. President. Well done, indeed.
Do you think that this is an ‘oopsie’?
OF COURSE NOT!
I love it when someone like Trump outmaneuvers the morons of the mainstream media. Whether Trump is a good guy, or bad, he has been entertaining.
You can bet that CBS had to grit their teeth as they choked on this bit of reporting that they had to do. And, you can bet that they attempted to weight their statistics AGAINST the President. So, you should probably add an additional 10% to their 75%.
But, I’m naturally cynical, so decide for yourself.
The bottom line is that Trump won this bit of competitive ‘theatre’, hands down.
Well done, Mr. President. Very well done, indeed. And, I’m not used to saying sentences like that.
It’s refreshing. Bigly.
The television industry is handing their business over to the Internet. It’s like they have a deathwish. And, it’s what happens when you lose touch with reality.
They’ve lost touch, so they will go down in flames, like everyone else.
Why do people keep shooting themselves in the foot, like this?
The idea that I would agree with Piers Morgan on ANYTHING is a surprise. So, this is a surprise, but a grudging one. Piers still makes some low blows, because he can’t help himself. But, he does acknowledge the stunningly obvious.
I can give him that much without cringing.
Unfortunately, the original article was in The Daily Mail, and down the right side of this article was a column full of pictures of naked women. And, that sickens me.
Why do British and many American newspapers feel the need to trash our lives with their incessant display of nude and nearly nude pictures of unnaturally endowed women?
Of course, I know the answer to that one. Sex sells. But, when given a choice, I will always reject the sexual marketing – when possible. Or, if I recognize that this is happening.
When you are cognizant of sex being used as a marketing tool, go to that product’s competition. I did that when looking for some new computer hardware. Asus wasn’t using highly sexualized marketing, so I went with them… instead of their dirtbag competition.
Oh, and I use an Ad Blocker on my web browser, because I’m tired of having female anatomy being waved in my face. I don’t mind ads. I really don’t. What I mind is being forced to see stuff that isn’t good for me to see.
If you are like me, do the same. Get an Ad Blocker.
This category has expanded significantly. It’s as if the flood gates on this issue have opened. It’s an indication of the seriousness of the situation. And, it’s very serious, indeed.
Ethiopia is an extremely corrupt government and has made worthless promises that they will carefully fill the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. I believe that they will fill that dam as fast as possible, drying up the Nile, just as chapter 19 of Isaiah said that they would.
It is said that they will begin filling the dam, next year.
This is going to be traumatic for Egypt – just as Isaiah said.
EGYPT IS HANDLING THIS CRISIS WITH… TRUST?!
Are they insane?
Ethiopia continues to play the delaying game, while this dam is being finished.
Another good and more recent overview of what is happening with the GERD.
I couldn’t get the video to work in my browser, but the short write-up is all the reason for why this dam needs to be built:
Ethiopia’s economy is growing by around 8 to 10 percent, and with it – their energy requirements. The government is promoting high-profile projects like the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam in the Blue Nile. It should help reduce Ethiopia’s reliance on oil.
I mean, Ethiopia doesn’t have ANYTHING to power their economy, except The Nile.
And, the concrete filling has been completed.
The events that are descending upon us, will try our souls. How many of us survive those trials will depend upon your location and your preparations.
Please prepare for the worst period of time in human history. America will be ground zero, followed by Europe. Other places will be devastated, but those two areas will be hit the worst – at least, as I see it now.
No place will be safe, but there are some places that will be safer than others.
Please, prepare for the worst.
Jesus gave us permission to engage in self-defense. Not revolution. Self-defense.
And THIS is some pretty cool self-defense.
This is an ominous sign.
What people may not realize is that a reduction in solar output will cause drought. It will also cause heavier rains and heavier flooding. And, it looks like we are in the downslope of a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM).
In previous GSMs, millions died. It’s almost a tradition.
The problem is that countries with armies and a populace without morals, will not follow ‘tradition’ and just die. They’ll fight for survival, even if it means taking what you have.
If we are indeed entering a ‘Grand Solar Minimum’ – and it really does look like it – expect more and more news that sound like this ‘Zero Day’.
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.
This is NOT a good headline to see. Not at all. Peak Confidence means that there is a crash ahead.
I could only glance through this, but the arguments dovetail with my own thoughts. These valuations ARE NOT SUSTAINABLE. And, what cannot be sustained WILL NOT be sustained.
When you see these words…
the strongest run in nearly 60 years
That doesn’t mean that there’s going to be a crash this year. It doesn’t even mean that there will be a crash next year. But, there WILL be a crash. The longer the delay, the bigger it will be. And, it has already been delayed.
Follow Gregory Mannarino, if you want to stay in the market. He seems to know how to play defense, while still making money.
Why do we never learn?
We are repeating ALL of the mistakes that have led to catastrophic collapses in the past.
Here’s the first paragraph:
Financial writer Bill Holter thinks revelations from the so-called Washington D.C. swamp are going to intensify in 2018. Holter explains, “I would call what’s coming a tsunami of truth. . . . I think it’s going to affect the mood of the country. It is going to enrage some people. I think it will scare some people. It will definitely affect capital flows. There is a debate about arresting people and perp walks, whether that would be good or bad for confidence. It’s my opinion it would initially be bad for confidence because there are so many people (that would be criminally charged) it would blow their minds. It’s beyond anything that they even thought of. So, I think confidence would initially break, but longer term, it is good for confidence because it will be a sign that the rule of law is coming back to the United States.”
I hope that he’s right. I really do – even if it DOES cause assets to crash. Of course, it WILL NOT be ‘the cause’, but it will be the ‘tipping point’.

This is an excellent interview. Danielle knows her stuff!
Does anyone remember the #1 rule in investing?
DON’T LOSE MONEY!!!
Yes, you’ll ‘get out’ early. But, you’ll also keep what you won.
Please. Don’t be a moron. It’s not good for your health, or your finances.
GOLD, SILVER AND CRYPTOCURRENCIES
When economic and financial collapse comes your way, you need something tangible to weather the storm. Right now, I cannot think of anything tangilble that is so fiercely undervalued and universally recognized as gold and silver.
There might be other things that are better. I just can’t see ’em. If you can think of something better, share it with us.
And, while I am a bit cynical about cryptocurrencies, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t an alternative worth looking into.
It looks like we might have already hit ‘Peak Silver’. Interesting, no?
And yes, this is one of the big vulnerabilities to cryptos. If the governments band together to stamp them out, they can do a lot of damage. A lot.
They might not be able to get rid of them, but they can hurt their valuations in a very big way.
These are at least worth a chuckle. And, it might save you from going nuts.
I had a bit of a laugh at these, and I hope that you will too.
I’ve posted this one before, but it really is to adorable. This is a dog that’s having fun. Lots.
Cats. Dogs. Birds. A turtle. The feral hog is NOT so funny. But, the rest are adorable.
Well, that’s pretty harmless.
Oh deer, this is some serious punishment.
It’s a guy thing. Really.
The murder of a defenseless apple, in progress – by an adorable, long eared fur-face.
Adorable canine fur-faces!
YAAAAAAY… uh …wait.
You haven’t lived until you’ve had to bottle-feed FOUR of these little ones.
Mostly fun. Some humor.
He’s a wass-cally wabbit!
Some really special ones in here.
Awwww… the fuzzy wuzzums wants a cuddle!
Goldens make GREAT moms!
People who have worked in Hollywood, keep asking if I’m Ted. I keep telling them that he’s 20 years older than me, and he parts his hair the wrong way. It’s gotten to the point where I’m ready to call him my older brother…
…even though I don’t HAVE an older brother.
(I’m an oldest.)
Not humor. Just really, really educational and interesting.
Okay, funny in a somewhat darkly humorous way. This young woman knows how to create effects that are shocking – or, just surprising.
The expression on her face… priceless.
A whole bunch of fuzzy wuzzems.
You know that you want one.
MORONS AND MORE MORONS… WE’RE SURROUNDED BY MORONS
I’m sorry, but I can’t stand it anymore. There are just too many morons, so it needs its own category. And, I do this to maintain my own sanity. They’re driving me THAT crazy.
Now, here’s my rule for who appears in this section:
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.
Look out belowwwww!
There’s a new standard being set. It’s all about being stupid, and one ‘Bay Area’ town is getting ready to set that new standard. If you wanna ‘get stupid’, go to Stockton.
I can’t believe it.
No, that’s not true. I CAN believe it. I just don’t want to.
How can the Germans be so stupid?
And no, I do NOT want to know.
First of all, you only need to know that Gloria Allred is involved. That immediately tells you that hypocrisy, stupidity and complete lies are going to be involved.
However, this takes ‘stupid’ to a news level.
No one puts a product behind glass, if it isn’t being stolen. It doesn’t matter WHAT it is, or who is buying it. It will ONLY go behind glass, if it is being stolen.
Every store on the planet knows that a product sells better, if people can handle it. But, these morons don’t seem to be interested in morality – least of all, Gloria Allred.
Oh dear. This article made me feel very unsafe.
BECAUSE SHE’S OLD ENOUGH TO VOTE AND PROBABLY DID!!!!!
And, this is where I say…
HELP! HELP! I SEE MORONS!
Good ol’ Moore. One of the ORIGINAL morons. Ugly and stupid.
You can fix ugly. But, fixing stupid… is impossible.
Mam, that that emotional support ostrich and your emotional support giraffe don’t fit in airline seats.
Emotional support elephants?
Can’t go anywhere without your somewhat-less-than-tame chimpanzee?
It’s time for a reality check, kids. I don’t mind sharing an airline cabin with animals. After all, lots of animals are better than most of the passengers on any given flight. And, if someone wants to purchase an extra seat on a flight… for an animal …I’m cool with that.
But, your emotional support zebra is one zebra too far.
Morons should NOT be allowed to return, when they are sent into exile.
‘cuz you can’t fix stupid.
I’m sorry, but I’m wondering if these people have any sense of how stupid and moronic they appear.
What do these people see, when they look at their own video feeds?
Is there ANYONE telling them that they look like mental patients? Escapies from a psych ward?
Islam is the most vile and Satanic religion on the planet. It is violent, repressive, racist and supremacist. It isn’t just a religion. It’s an ideology that seeks to destroy any nation, country and government that it comes in contact with.
These are the articles that demonstrate what Islam REALLY is.
It shall go down in history as the Massacre at Channel Four, where Cathy Newman got massacred by Jordan Peterson. And, it was an opportunity for David Wood to prove Muhammad (esbuh) wrong.
And… David had some fun, making fun of Cathy Newman.
I laughed. How about you?
Whoa. Now THIS is an ARGUMENT.
Islamic apologist, Zakir Naik, is actually setting up Muslims to become CHRISTIAN?
Well, yes. In fact, the more that the Muslims scream, yell, rant and rave – Christ wins. These poor Dawa efforts are so threadbare, that Muslims will eventually say that they can’t take it anymore and flee to the only place that makes sense.
We are seeing the fulfillment of the words of Jesus, right now. And, it seems that Islam is leading the way. What insanity!
What is wrong with North America and Europe?
Have they – and we – gone insane?
This is how bad the insanity is. The mother of this poor girl would rather have the Muslim dirtbag molesting her daughter, than have him leave her house – and have him arrested.
I just do not understand how this is possible. And no, I do NOT WANT TO UNDERSTAND!
This is what happens, when you elect a Muslim mayor.
Could it be that it’s a sign that the UK government is waking up to the problem of Muslims invading Britain?
Don’t be silly.
But, this IS a sign of something pretty serious.
And, there’s nothing like doubling down on STUPID, to seal your fate.
If you live in the EU, you have my sympathy.
I’m sorry, but Germany did it to itself. And, I don’t understand how they could be so stupid.
And, the alternative to Merkel’s lunacy, is a newly Muslim moron?
Is their ANY hope for Germany?
GOG AND MAGOG
I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while. You can find a lot of that, here:
And, the articles below point to that coming. I really, Really, REALLY hope that you’ll be ready for this. Please read Ezekiel’s Fire to make sure. (And yes, it’s free.)
Okay, some of you won’t understand how this plays out – especially, in terms of prophecy. And, I’m not sure if I have the time to lay out the pieces for you and show you where things are going.
First of all, the writer of this piece is an excellent analyst in the ‘game’ of geopolitics. He knows how to look at the board and see strategic problems and strategic advantages. Unfortunately, he doesn’t understand Israel, or the Arabs. He understands some of it, but not the most important part.
Israel’s involvement in Syria is all about survival. Completely. Absolutely. Without question. Nor does Israel want to conquer Syria. They might have thought that this was possible in the heady days of the early ’80s – when they were winning in Southern Lebanon. But, when they realized that they couldn’t hold on to Lebanon, they understood – and hopefully STILL understand – that they cannot rule the Arabs.
The bigger question is whether ANYONE can rule the Arabs.
My personal belief is that Trump with throw away Obama’s plan for the domination of Western Asia and restart from positions of strength. Obama lost Turkey. Obama also lost Iraq. Obama also mismanaged his attempt to destroy Syria.
What Obama should have done was forcefully encourage Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia into a closer relationship. Trump is doing that, and it looks like Trump is using Israel’s relationship with the Kurds, to good effect.
And, whoever set up that coup against Erdogan… should be fired. That failure is a sign of incompetence. The question is who failed? And, why?
Now, all of that is a fairly dispassionate view of things, without the ‘moral dimension’. And, we need a ‘moral dimension’. Without it, failure is assured. The problem is that we don’t know what promises have been made to the players in the region.
If the American Empire lies, she will eventually lose her allies – which means that she WILL lose her allies, since telling the truth is a problem for Washington.
The other thing that this writer doesn’t quite get, is the tribalism among the Arabs. We tend to look at the fighting in Syria as a civil war. It isn’t. At least… not completely.
In reality, it’s a tribal war. And, it’s why ISIS can suddenly pop up in unexpected places in Syria. It isn’t really ISIS. It’s just some tribe taking advantage of a situation and doing what it does naturally.
What comes natural to the Arab tribes in the Middle East?
Killing other tribes.
Seriously. Arab tribes in the Middle East have been killing each other since there were Arab tribes in the Middle East.
The only places where tribes seem to have less of a hold, are the ‘big cities’. It’s harder to keep tribalism alive in a city, since the ‘us’ vs ‘them’ mentality tends to suffer from erosion as you start to see ‘them’ as people like yourself.
Iran and Russia will attempt to impose their will on the Syrian tribes. And, they’ve had mixed success, but more success than the Obama administration had. The question is whether Trump can win over the tribes.
I doubt it, but anything is possible.
The bigger threat to this Israel-Jordan-Saudi axis in the Middle East, is the eventual fall of Egypt. Egypt is going to implode, and it will distract everyone from this effort to keep Russia and Iran out of Syria.
This could get ugly, fast.
You can bet that Iran and Hezbollah will target Israel’s natural gas drilling and extraction facilities in the Mediterranean Sea.
Do not understimate this potential flashpoint.
A headline like this is NOT what you want to see, if you want a ‘delay’ in the coming of Gog and Magog.
Yes, it does.
These Ottoman dreams are a problem.
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.
– Psalm 122:6
May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.
This is actuallly a smart move on the part of Israel. Remember that these terrorists believe that they will go straight to heaven, for doing what they have done.
But, not if they haven’t been buried properly.
Maybe a little bacon in the body cavity would help here?
Um, they shouldn’t even need to ask the question, but they did anyway. And, the answer is that the Democrats are dirtbags.
Are any of you surprised?
Oh, and just to demonstrate how evil the Democrats are, John Kerry has encouraged the leader of the Palestinians to ‘stand firm’.
John ‘Dirtbag’ Kerry. Wow.
Hmmmm… probably. But, since it isn’t RUSSIAN COLLUSION…
This is sick.
I went through the Second Intifada, while living in Jerusalem. You don’t want to go through that. Yet, Palestinians in America want you to.
Would you like to live in fear of your life?
If you do, then do nothing.
This is an excellent example of what I was talking about last week, in my article: The Big Lie and Big Liars.
Purveyors of ‘The Big Lie’ never provide ‘context’ or ‘background’. They never show the humanity of their targets. To ‘The Big Liars’, Israelis are just faceless animals. To The Big Liars, Israel is a rapacious country, second only to Nazi Germany.
Of course, the exact opposite is true, which is why this is such a ‘Big Lie’.
The average reader of the New York Times might suspect that an NYT writer lied about small things. But, a Big Lie?
And THAT is why the New York Times and similar publications get away with such murder. And yes, it is murder, since these lies cause the death and dismemberment of innocent Israelis. These lies support the aid that is given to Palestinian terrorists, every year. These lies put guns in the hands of murderers, to kill innocent Jews.
I am sick of it, and I am especially sick of it among those who should know better.
Does ANYONE love the truth, anymore?
Unfortunately, Netanyahu will not get the reaction that he wants from Russia. Oh, he’ll hear pleasant sounding words.
But, action on the ground?
And, now that a road has been opened between Iran and Lebanon, for the first time in… well …more than a thousand years, the situation in Lebanon is going to dramatically decline. Fast.
This was the warning issued by the Israel Defense Forces, before Netanyahu went to Russia.
Israel is deadly serious about this problem, and the rest of the world is not paying attention.
Ah yes. They are still attempting to sanitize the history of the Arab World. By locking away and/or destroying these artifacts, it eliminates more evidence of what the Arabs did to the Jews of the Middle East.
You probably don’t remember this, but when you compare the numbers of ‘Palestinian Refugees’ and the Jewish refugees from Arab countries… you’ll find that the Jewish refugees far outnumber the ‘Palestinian’ ones. So, they can’t allow any support for this fact to flourish.
These books and documents would support what the Arabs would not wish anyone to know.
If you are a FaceBook user, you need to make HonestReporting a part of your ‘Facebook Feed’. And, that means making sure that you are passing on what they write.
Facebook will be doing their best to keep you from passing their information on. So, follow HonestReporting’s recommendations to make sure that your friends have the truth about what is really going on in Israel.
And yes, it’s important.
Wow. This guy was a HERO!
Here is a quote:
It was only in his last years that his courageous story came to light; and only after his death on July 31, 1986, that the government acknowledged his acts of conscience. In 1992, a monument to Sugihara was unveiled in his hometown of Yaotsucho, thanks to an initiative supported by former Prime Minister Noboru Takeshita. There is also a museum in the town dedicated to his life and memory.
Perhaps the following words of Chiune Sugihara are the most eloquent on his contribution to humanity: “I took it upon myself to save (the refugees). If I was to be punished for this, there was nothing I could do about it. It was my personal conviction to do it as a human being.”
And then there’s this:
The following is a personal story from BNI reader, Jane, in Canada, about her own family’s indebtedness to Mr. Sugihara and his wife:
Consul General Sugihara and his family are heroes in every sense of the word. My father-in-law and his brother would never have survived the Holocaust, had it not been for him. Nor would my family exist, if it hadn’t been for these truly remarkable people who risked their own lives, and the lives of their children, to save Jewish lives.
My great hope is that Mr. Sugihara was a Christian, when he died. I want to be able to shake his hand and thank him, when I get to heaven.
There’s a lot more in the article.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
