Prayers Don’t Work?!

November 9, 2017

Well, some people have opinions, and others have facts.

After the shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, some media celebrities decided to proclaim their foolishness, rather than keep their silence and let people doubt it.

DOUBLE-BLIND STUDIES ON INTERCESSORY PRAYER

Many double-blind studies have shown that intercessory prayer DOES work. The one recent study, just one, that got some publicity, claimed that the results were not conclusive. Even so, they admit that there were even negative results.

There was no mention in those reports about the several studies that did show that it does work.

I propose, though, that it is very hard to get a good handle on this phenomenon statistically. My first question for any such study is to ask whether they accounted for the praying people’s faith or lack of it, and how did they measure that? Barna Research has some good guidelines on such matters, because their people are committed Christians and regard it as a ministry to help other ministries and pastorates allocate resources wisely.

A lot of unbelievers reproached the calls for prayers for the survivors and families of the people killed in the massacre. A few more claimed they wanted more action to prevent such incidents, by which they really meant they wanted to make it more difficult for people like Stephen Willeford to acquire effective arms. Willeford was the neighbor who stopped the killing when he exchanged gunfire with the killer outside the church. The killer fled after that exchange, and ended up rolling off the road into a ditch about 12 miles up the road.

By the way, the Good Samaritan neighbor, Willeford, had the same type of weapon the killer had used, an AR-15. He said he would have a lesser chance of aiming properly with a lesser weapon like a pistol.

If you want to do more, you might do like some bigger churches do, who have good guys with guns ready to protect the flock in case of some wolf wanting to do damage.

Smaller churches, like the one in Sutherland Springs, often have members who do have firearms and can legally carry them. There have been previous incidents in which a killer was stopped by someone with a gun inside the church. One of them involved a terrorist attack against a mixed-race church in South Africa during Apartheid days, where one guy in the Security forces was packing and chased off all five, who had not expected anyone to shoot back.

For those who think it was all over before the hero got there, keep in mind that the killer had more weapons and lots of ammunition in his vehicle. There was another church two miles up the same road he fled on. If not chased, he might have otherwise to continue the spree.

Another relevant fact. This guy had made two posts on Facebook where he had good things to say about the violent nihilist (“neo-Brownshirt”) Antifa. He had illegally bought the guns because he was a convicted wife-beater and baby-basher (cracking his stepchild’s skull) which got him expelled from the Air Force.

The government is just too big and too slow to react quick enough or properly so with people like this guy, especially surrounded by a government-compliant media complex that soaks its audience with faint praise for street marauders as in antifa.

As the slogan goes: Remember, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

Some Songs, for what it’s worth

November 4, 2017

Won’t Get Fooled Again” is one of my all-time favorites:
The Who – Won’t Get Fooled Again:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHhrZgojY1Q
That song gave us “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”.
That’s what you get with violent mob revolutions.
The world-wide revolution that Jesus Christ started is sweeping the world in spite of everything Tyrants and Captains and Kings and “Grey Guards” and “Interplanetary Guardians” can do, whatever they’re calling themselves these days.

Some of the songs from the Kinks are thoughtful ones. This one is anti-war:
Kinks, Living on a Thin Line
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsLhNxzwK1Y

But then, they sang in nostalgia for the lost glories of the British empire:
Kinks, Victoria
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2GHlcwlT1Y

A description of “A Well Respected Man“, in times agone now, by the Kinks:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WsmSgBRUe4

Enough of the Kinks, here’s a relevant one for a certain time for a certain collection of states.
Animals – We Gotta Get Out Of This Place: A good song for those who are still stuck in the States
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpNWSW49IBM

The Who is The Seeker, keeps on looking but not finding what it is he is seeking and without even knowing what it is. But in the lyrics the songwriter makes clear that neither Dylan nor the Beatles nor Acid Rock had the answer to what he was seeking.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAbzlj3nf4E
Reminds me of a verse: “..ever learning, never coming to the knowledge of the truth…” –2 Timothy 3:7

Then there’s Don McLean with a mournful  lament about the fall in the level and quality of popular music and the fall of the original rock and roll genre into dark and deadly depths. American Pie:

Russian propaganda or American blowback?

September 21, 2017

Media Matters now says Matt Drudge pushed Russian propaganda, by its linking to RT and Sputnik. But they don’t share comparative counts.

The people voted for the peace candidate. Was that Russian propaganda? Nyet! Make peace not war!

People voted against sexual confusion! That’s Russian propaganda?

Sanders fans voted against the Wall Street candidate, preferring the Gramschi socialist Green Party.

The electorate voted against DNC-Clinton campaign collusion. Russian propaganda, or truth?

The electorate voted against the enabler of a serial rapist.
The electorate voted against Obamacare. Was the entire Republican membership of Congress in collusion with Russian propagandists?

The electorate voted for sane immigration policy. Is it the Russians that want sane immigration policy, or would they want to bankrupt California even more than it already is?

The electorate voted against socialist government. Of course the Russians wanted to stop the weakening of the economy and stop the welfare state.

The electorate voted against the regulations choking production and small business.

The electorate voted against ATF running guns to Mexican cartels

If The Russians are so good at mind control, then MK Ultra was an abysmal failure and so is Mockingbird Media at its impossible task of keeping us ignorant and stupid and even the neocons should demand the CIA shut itself down, close doors and apologize to us, and discovered their modern iteration of Operation Mockingbird, whatever they call it now, exposed by the brave German journalist who blew the whistle and is now blacklisted.

And why should we have to read Russian media anyway to find out what our government, our rulers, are doing to us anyway?

Jesus Christ promised in Matthew 24, the end times prophecy chapter, that secrets whispered in even bedchambers shall be shouted from the rooftops. They are starting to use their crony social media partners to suppress inconvenient truths and disappear un-persons.

God is not mocked. Sow and reap. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Left is swamped

September 19, 2017

Swamp has been dividing it’s victims for a long time, trying to set up groups based on superficiality especially and labels, getting groups to blame other groups for their woes instead of the Swamp creatures.

Black vs. white, Muslims vs. Christians, Hollywood vs. Middle America, Black poor vs. White poor, North vs South.

They make you think federales will help you against local cops but this is a nasty trick. Just like you thought the “Civil War” supposedly “freed the slaves”, remember instead that it brought you Jim Crown instead, because the Yankee conquerors thought the same about blacks as the master whites.

Remember there were more whites who did NOT own slaves than slave owners.

Federales will attack your rights same as they do against Western ranchers and Christians, including black pastors. Like the Houston mayor who demanded pastors’ sermon notes to scare them into buckling to Sodom items demands.

Blame the Swamp creatures in D. C., Hollywood, Wall Street, Swamp Meddia, K Street lobby, U. N., NATO, utopian Commission, the two headed Political Party machine, and even the “Establishment Christian” swampsters (both “left” and”right”).

Where this is going is found in the King James Bible. Don’t get chipped!

Day the Towers Fell: Unanswered Questions

September 16, 2017

—What of the “five dancing Israelis” that same day that were barely a flash in the pan in the news cycle, and the dozens (hundreds?) of Israelis that were deported in the following days?
—Who shorted the airlines involved in the four hijackings and made big money?
—Why was every aircraft in the entire country grounded immediately, including military aircraft, while the bin Laden family took off in the hours following?
—Why did we never see a photo of the aircraft that crashed into the Pentagon, but we all saw the photos of the building and the hole in the building without the remains of the aircraft?
—What happened to the investigation into the billions of dollars of Pentagon budget not accounted for, after the papers were destroyed in the Pentagon hit in that section of the building?
—Why are NONE of the multitude of security videos in that area ever available? Did every one of them have top secret evidence? If so then why was that secret evidence in plain view enough for an open-air video to capture it in the first place?
—How, and when, did major CIA asset Osama bin Laden become Enemy of the State Number One?

–Why do freedom-loving Americans buy into the fraud that State Security would protect them, and protect their freedoms, while it was assaulting those freedoms in their face?

–The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. –Proverbs 15:3

 

U. S. and State Governments Aiding and Abetting Criminal Brownshirts Leftists Now?

August 20, 2017

Yahoo/AP distorts the facts in their article about Charlottesville. What else is new?

Everyone who paid attention knows that one group in Charlottesville came with a permit, working getting the required permit, and intending to peaceably assemble. They had the legal right to be there.

If the ALT-LEFT had not announced with follow-through credibility that they intended to shut down that rally, there would have been no problem. Conservatives and Christians are already shut out of Operation Mockingbird Media, the Old Grey Lady Ossified Official Press, and increasingly censored out of private but de-facto public forums and arenas like Social Media sites, Google, Twitter, and so on.

But the counter demonstration as the media calls it included the very violent masked marauders of the fascists of  “antifa” who came with soda cans filled with concrete and other lethal weapons, one flamethrower caught on video, and marched straight toward the rally.

So what did the “authorities” do? Governor McAuliffe, who knew that a federal judge had ruled that the rally had a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to speak, and that he had time to provide and coordinate PROTECTION for this assembly, he declared a “state of emergency” so he and the mayor could shut down the rally, and make sure they joined the message to the country that they will not tolerate free speech to the right of Josef Stalin or Pol Pot.

So how did they proceed? Just before they began to speak, for starters, the police declared it an “unlawful” assembly. With a permit they got legally, remember, and for a rally for which the organizers had been coordinating with the police.

Then they sent the police in to remove the rally attendees from the site of the rally.

The police “escorted” the rally attendees directly into the violent “counter-protestors”, who were waiting for them with all their weapons. When the inevitable physical battle began, the police FLED the scene, telling one reporter they were pulling back because it was “too violent”.

What in the world are police for? First, there was plenty of warning from the left Brownshirts that they intended to force the rally to shut down.

So instead of protecting citizens who came to (freely) assemble and (freely speak), who disavowed violence, and prepare to block the declared criminal intent from the Brownshirt leftists, they proceeded to shut down the rally for those Brownshirts.

In other words, the Governor and the Mayor joined the criminals. The fascist “Antifa” members who are willing to speak publicly claim it is not really organized are liars, because you cannot have that many popping up everywhere in these highly coordinated actions without some kind of patronage, financial support, and organization. This is something that in a sane country cries out for some harsh RICO action.

But what if these leftist Democrat and RINO-dominated federal and state governments are joining the criminals in de facto censorship? What if Romans One is happening before our eyes, with people who have turned their backs on God getting given up by God to rot in their own reprobate minds?

Cville Police: MAJOR FAIL: Police told to flee the violence; Political setup

August 15, 2017

First, one Fox News personality is blaming mostly the federal judge. Maybe he was in on the set up, who knows?

They had months of planning. Witnesses present at the “white supremacist” rally, including one fellow from Finland who said he just wanted to listen to a talk about American history, said he saw no evidence of strong KKK presence or Nazi symbols or any of that.

He also said with others:

(1) he saw that there was physical aggression against people coming for the rally. “Counter-protestors” were pushing, shoving, even punching the ones coming to the meet.

(2) he saw that the police were actually directing people in wrong directions, and

(3) even herding the demonstrators there to rally for the preservation of the historical statue toward the leftist antifa and BLM groups.

Presumably that’s when it got violent and that’s when the police moved back on orders.

And one “random man” interviewed by MSNBC and NYT turns out to be a shill with deep ties to Soros organizations.

So it’s looking like a setup for more attacks on Trump.

 

Another strike on Assad forces: Atrocity

May 18, 2017

The U. S. strike on pro-Assad Syrian forces just announced, in Syrian territory, is absolutely a violation of international law.

And the excuses they give for it are laughable. A laugh riot. The real abusers of civilians in Syria have been perpetrated by the armies that the United States has been supporting there. That includes ISIS, with money flowing from Washington to the Saudis, who have been sending money and arms to ISIS in Syria. This is publicly known information, even though the Fake News Networks try to sit on this scandal.

Assad is the best friend of Christians in Syria and better than almost the entire Arab world.

MAKE PEACE NOT WAR.

Mainstream Media Corruption

May 17, 2017

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-16/murdered-dnc-staffer-seth-rich-shared-44000-emails-wikileaks
Turns out now there is a private investigator looking into the Seth Rich murder. The PI’s services are paid by an anonymous donor and reports his results to the family, reportedly.

Seth’s family is denying it through a spokesman. The spokesman is ” none other than Democrat crisis PR consultant Brad Bauman” of the Pastorum Group. (Who’s paying for him).

Another anonymous FBI source says Seth Rich exchanged emails with Gavin MacFadyen, a reporter and film director and former Wikileaks director. The source says Seth Rich sent MacFadyen 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments collected from exchanges among other DNC staffers.

That is from the FBI forensic report, according to the source.

In a capital beset by gangs and murders and muggings, Seth was gunned down by two men caught on a grainy store video and fled without robbing anything, leaving cash and jewelry on his person, apparently taking nothing.

Message delivered for persons on the “wrong’ end of whistleblowing, exposing wickedness in high places.

 

Medical studies are almost always bogus

May 8, 2017

…And the headlines promise more than they deliver, according to an article at the New York Post.

The article refers to the results of research published in the book by Richard Harris:

(Begin excerpt)

“…For any study to have legitimacy, it must be replicated, yet only half of medical studies celebrated in newspapers hold water under serious follow-up scrutiny — and about two-thirds of the “sexiest” cutting-edge reports, including the discovery of new genes linked to obesity or mental illness, are later “disconfirmed.”

Though erring is a key part of the scientific process, this level of failure slows scientific progress, wastes time and resources and costs taxpayers excesses of $28 billion a year, writes NPR science correspondent Richard Harris in his book “Rigor Mortis: How Sloppy Science Creates Worthless Cures, Crushes Hope, and Wastes Billions” (Basic Books).

“When you read something, take it with a grain of salt,” Harris tells The Post. “Even the best science can be misleading, and often what you’re reading is not the best science.”

(End excerpt)

It’s not just medicine. All of science research is suffering from the same effect.

The writer does not deny the tendency is always there in the hot competition, and recognizes the shrinking budgets of taxpayer money to dole out for medical studies makes for the present crisis in which “half” of these taxpayer-funded studies (paid for by taxpayer extortion) are not reproducible.

The article describes what is happening, the symptom, but without acknowledging the “disease”. Integrity in medical research has died at the hand of the “administrative state”, unelected fiefdoms of government, less obvious because they are restricted parts of the whole, and because of the cover of mandates by laws outsourcing legislative duties to them.

If the research funds come from the organization with a monopoly of force, there is no constraint on the decisions made by the ones who disperse the funds.

In a free market, the funds would come from parties with an interest in getting results. In government the interests are politically driven careers, and personal pet projects with no personal cost.

This article makes no mention of any comparison between research funded by the private sector with no taint of government priorities, versus government funding.

But besides the difference being intuitively obvious, we have at least one example in the area of stem cell research. The media widely reported on the debate leading up to the decision by George W. Bush on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research.  He eventually decided to allow continuing research with the existing embryonic cell lines that had been funded, but restrict the use of federal funding for any new cell lines. Using new embryonic cell lines means the destruction of an embryo. An embryo is a new human life, a baby.

What was not reported in “Official Media” was that this research into EMBRYONIC stem cell research had already been at full speed for decades, with at the time NOT ONE medical application.

Also not reported at the time was that there were already 72 –seventy-two– medical applications resulting from ADULT stem cell research, already widely in use, funded by PRIVATE money. A few years later there were 150, and finally one study determined that adult stem cell research couple serve for any purported application of the embryonic studies.

Meaning, when you hear that they got some good thing or another from the embryonic stem cell research, remember it easier needless anyway,  sending bad money after bad, besides the other.

But the outrageous truth is that so many new lives were needlessly snuffed out while in the first stages of growth, in the name of stuffing them out, and with the bogus cover story of interest in medical advancement and the cure, for which using ADULT cells were already proven to serve much better.

And what a colossal waste of taxpayer-extorted money, including the one BILLION dollars that California’s tax victims had to dish out for it.
