Maybe Babylon is as a symbol of “false worship” in seminary textbooks and in many old Christian writings, but the Bible itself, indeed The Revelation of Jesus Christ (as given to John) overrules. 

In Rev. 17 and 18 you can find the interpretation of who the Whore of Babylon actually is, “that great city”, and it says “wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness”. 

The Vatican is a sucking parasite and does not make anybody rich. This Babylon does. And in her is the blood of all that were slain upon the earth. 

That’s a good description of a “great city” that enriches kings all around the planet with its dollars and its foreign spending, and moves merchandise trade around the earth with the international medium of exchange (the dollar) and its multinational monsters. 

The woman sitteth upon the seven kings, “five are fallen”, as described in Daniel, that is, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece. “One is” would be Rome. “One is yet to come”, that would be the last superpower on Earth before the time of the Beast, as described in Rev. 17 because who else? The Roman Catholic Church is not so powerful, hah, somebody just engineered a coup d’etat to finally install the Jesuit socialist in power at the Vatican. 

The most fitting entity for Rev. 17 today is either Washington D. C. or New York, but most likely the latter because of so much talk of trade and merchandise. And it sits on the seventh mountain, the seventh world kingdom, and that would be the United States of America.  

The Jesuit is ‘preparing the flock” to be sheared and butchered by the Beast, so he could be the False Prophet of Rev. 13. 

Get ready, to be ready, to meet your maker, after the November elections and the inauguration it is going to be a wild, wild, ride. The enemies of the “everyday man” are now saying it is time for “the elites to rise up against the masses”. Maybe when Trump said “the gloves are off”, he was talking about those “elites”  themselves.

Is the media orchestrated?

August 16, 2015

Most “traditional” media writers (broadcast, cable, paper-legacy press) don’t realize they are part of an industry and government-media complex.

The truth of the matter became clear to me in 2009 when Honduras deposed the sitting caudillo president. He had won the election by fraud, as he himself even admitted out loud to Jorge Ramos in a Univision interview: “Everybody does it, Jorge!”, he said.

That year, 2009, was when I watched in surprised awe as EVERY SINGLE ONE of ALL the traditional international (Establishment-approved) Media sources, like CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN-Espanol, NYT, Reuters, AP, LA Times, BBC, NPR, the French agency, all of them called it a “coup”, and they said NOTHING about Zelaya taking on the mantle of dictator. That was right after the summit of Caribbean and Central American presidents in Santo Domingo in November 2008 where George Soros was their “keynote speaker”.

And then ALL of the votes in the United Nations, including the Zelaya-appointed ambassador, condemned Honduras for defending itself from a Hugo Chavez-style coup-by-fraud, a criminal runaway president. They dotted their “i”s, and crossed their “t”s, constitutionally, and the Congress recognized his removal from the presidency with a list of his crimes, major thefts of government money, abuses, refusal to obey court orders (from “pipsqueak judges”, “juecesitos”), refusal to abide by laws passed by the Congress and violating multiple sections in the Constitution.

The day after slanderous and libelous CNN-Espanol broadcasts that Sunday, July 28, Hondurans were enraged. Half the adult population poured into all the central city and town plazas to support the transitional government, to protest against the demands to reinstate the dictator, AND TO PROTEST THE INTERNATIONAL MEDIA COVERAGE.

That same evening, one of the news analysts on CNN-Espanol let it out on the broadcast of events that EVERY SINGLE ONE of the massive numbers of emails they were getting from Honduras and Hondurans were in favor of the removal of Zelaya and in favor of the transitional president Micheletti, and she begged for even one that would be in favor of him.

The colossal river of money for leftist organizations has buried the videos on Youtube of those demonstrations in searches but they are there (unless Google has removed them).

The joke in Honduras was that Zelaya had unified the nation, and brought the people together in one cause. Protestants and Catholics, rich and poor, Chambers of Commerce and the unions, young and old, Liberal Party members (Zelaya’s own) and National Party members, men and women, professionals and laborers, doctors and illiterate, they all united in protesting Zelaya and international coverage.

International coverage was unanimous. That was telling for me.

THANK GOD FOR THE INTERNET BECAUSE THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE YOU COULD FIND THE TRUTH IF YOU WANTED IT.

In one program, NPR had a panel of these “experts” talking about Honduras, and they got one caller who corrected them with the truth. One of these vacant “experts” immediately explained to the audience that Obama simply wanted to stop the American meddling in Latin America. The caller was already gone, so they missed the chance to understand that Obama WAS meddling in Honduras when he condemned its defense against another strong-man dictator. They kept meddling. Hillary Clinton called Micheletti personally to order him to resign. He said “No!” Gretchen later asked him what would it take to get him to resign (and let the socialist back into power) and he said “Only an invasion.”

American officers no doubt said “No way” they were going to invade, if Obama asked them. When Chavez did threaten invasion, American colonels said the Hondurans were an awesome fighting force. But let’s leave one thing very clear. The military stayed out of the political activity then completely and only obeyed legitimate court orders at all times.

Only local media in Honduras reported more accurately. (except for the one apparently owned by leftist diehards).

Brazilian legislators who visited while Zelaya was there, were shocked to discover that his smuggled appearance inside their embassy was a surprise. They were even more shocked to discover that the entire community of Brazilians living in Honduras were outraged at Zelaya and disagreed with the news coverage outside.

Honduras changed history. That’s when Latin American politicians and activists saw that going socialist was NOT inevitable at all! The FLMN-party president in El Salvador shortly announced they would not join the Venezuelan petro club. An ex-president of Guatemala said maybe they should coordinate foreign policy with Honduras. The mayor of Caracas said maybe they should import some Honduran “huevos” to Venezuela. Paraguay later also removed a leftist caudillo strong-man president.

Lobo, the next elected president (elections were maybe the most-oberved, most scrutinized in the history of the world) was Lobo. He immediately asked for input on how to move Honduras out of poverty. The result was the Smart Cities project, which was later scrapped for a much better plan, the ZEDE. (Zonas Economicas de Desarrollo y Empleo). It has begun and we will see how that unfolds now.

Just because you won an “election” doesn’t mean you’re not a totalitarian or dictator. Look at Obama. Even Lincoln suspended habeus corpus, threw reporters in prison, closed down opposing newspapers, sent an opposition (northern) Congressman fleeing to Canada for his life, and had troops fire on anti-draft demonstrators.

Gov schools vs. Parents’ Choice

August 1, 2015

Not to worry. If a nearly illiterate 3rd grade dropout and single mother like Sonya Carson in one of the poorest and most violent areas of the nation in Detroit’s slums, can raise her boy become a pediatric neurosurgeon, then the children who depend on their parents’ decisions for their education have a much better hope than government indoctrination factories.

Because “free” government schools are not free at all. They come at a cost of an education in the real world. The cost is to the generation that they indoctrinate. The government in those books is always the best one you can have (wink wink) and the rulers look out for you (wink wink).

USA gov centers spend twice per student over private schools average, with much better consistent scores. Minneapolis, D.C., and Florida with vouchers programs showed that the effect has nothing to do with them being better students, they became better students.

Jaime Escalante showed that too. His calculus students were accused of cheating in the AP test because the rulers couldn’t believe it. The Teachers Unions went to war against him till he finally returned to Bolivia disgusted.

My youngest boy’s kindergarten teacher taught her students as much as they could learn her first year, she told me. The next year the principal told her to slow down, the first grade teacher had nothing to teach them they didn’t already know.

But it’s not just the academic quality of the education, or that they government indoctrination centers (GICs) teach their own version of history that treats the current conquering rulers the best. The natural nuclear family unit is the best fortress against damage to the children of the next generation by the ruling political class. And respect for the property and economic freedom of families is the best defense against economic assaults by those who have more against those who have less.

Governments want the people to identify first as faithful compliant subjects, above family and above religions. They hate independent religious thinking. That’s why the USA national government (a “federal” government would respect its member states) treats religious thinking as the enemy. They might deign to allow an exemption for a religious organization, for tactical purposes only. Doing so drives a wedge between the organization’s leaders and its outside followers, makes them beholden to the rulers for the “exemption”, recruits some of them in getting its followers to go along, trains the layperson to go along too, and provides a fraudulent but thin cover story for respect for freedom of religion, while making people forget that religious freedom is an INDIVIDUAL’s NATURAL AND GOD-GIVEN RIGHT.

Letting governments control what students learn is the best way to heard them toward groupthink under tyranny.  Anti-government web sites are one of the new enemies in government-approved crime shows. But they should be encouraged. When everybody follows the government-mandated thinking on who is enemy, that is the kind of world George Orwell warned against.

Gov propaganda training? Enough!

 

Copernicus, the Printing Press and the Reformation

July 5, 2015

Some secular writers need some  education on the realities of history. As we can see in looking around us, neither good nor bad “religion” suffered at all from Copernicus’ theory, and neither did God, any more than it did from the pagan mass murders of the Roman emperors, or at the hand of the atheist and secular mass murderers of the Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, or Maoist regimes.

They even admit that at first the Pope himself was pleased to learn from Copernicus. Then came the secular “science” lobby with its emotional attachment to their own clinging to Aristotle instead of Ptolemy, and they found a way to convince the Church Establishment that their pet paradigm was scriptural and the Church itself was in peril if it did not accept the established “consensus” view of science”, their take on it.

After all, the geocentric view was taken from one of the secular/pagan Greek traditions, not the Biblical. We have the same problem today.

False “Religion” took a blow because it cowed to the secular lobby then, until new generations took to the new paradigm. This happened as well with Mendelssohn’s inheritance experiments with plants, until Darwin’s ideas were “safe” enough to let it hit the presses.

And then the howls of pain at the very idea that the universe had a beginning like the Bible said, earning this discovery the atheist pejorative of “The Big Bang”.

The process of liberation from the religious and secular leaders began NOT with Copernicus but the process began more with the printing press, which made it easier to spread ideas, and made Bible reading available to many times as many people. Therefore, while John Huss had been burned at the stake for his Bible-believing heresy, the ideas of freedom that the Bible itself had spread lit the fire in Martin Luther’s bosom and inspired his friends in nobility to hide him from the oppressor.

And while a lot of Christian kings including King James himself believed in a false doctrine of “divine right of kings”, what the Bible itself teaches is that ungodly and unrighteous kings don’t have any such “right” at all. It is a testament to the man himself and to the King James Bible that the translation that is known by his name today rings a death knell for any “divine right” of anybody to rule over anybody else.

In fact it is very clear that God himself was very angry with the Israeli elders when they demanded a king at all to rule over them. People who want kings (or rulers, or even representatives) to rule over them are declaring that they do not want God to rule their lives.

Jesus wisely replied to his enemies, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s”,  meaning render NOTHING unto him that you are not forced to do under threat of violence. Jesus’ lesson the apostles at the end of Matthew 17 makes clear that kings and conquerors are thieves by definition. “We can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.”

 

Powers That Be: While they send us to oblivion, where is their own Shangrila?

June 21, 2014

The Powers That Be think they have their own Galt’s Gulch things going. They have something going somewhere, secret fortresses. Remember Shangri-la? That’s an old idea they have going among themselves, looks like to me. Good entertainment story for the masses, coupled with plans communications to their brothers-in-arms. Help socialism along instead of educating the masses, send out pirates and steal stuff from supposedly bad guys, set up your own protection. Wait for society to collapse, and then they’ll come begging somebody to tell them what to do. That’s the story.

They’re already using different words for the same things they’ve done before. They don’t call it a “dictatorship of the proletariat” anymore. Because everybody knows the Soviet Union (now North Korea) was a dictatorship of the party bosses. We have the same thing, party bosses decide, but now we call it “democracy”. Rigged elections in LEFTIST dictatorships let these mini-Stalins claim they’re “democratic”. Confuse the public. Now the public thinks “democracy” is “loot for the masses”.

Government will provide “safety”??

May 18, 2014

Pulled from a discussion over weeks on the Daily Bell web site:

Trutherator:

The best place to regulate food safety is the free market.

He:

Well, the free market did control food safety a hundred or so years ago, which is why so many people died from foodborne illness outbreaks… Most of those illnesses were from raw milk, as a matter of fact.

Trutherator:

One thing, Where did you get your numbers for this dubious claim? In other words, how do you know? Did they teach you that in the government-owned, government-operated, government indoctrination centers (euphemistically called “schools”)? In the same history classes that taught you that Abraham Lincoln once proposed making slavery a permanent institution by amendment to the Constitution, because it would help “preserve the Union” by keeping the slave states from seceding?

But what you have now with “food safety control” are heavy-handed government agencies ruled by the same operators that run the government-connected rent-seeking corporation executives. Get the contradiction, and get it good: the control freaks demand control of food safety, to protect other people, whether they like it or not. So they get a control freak agency run by the Big Food Industry executives. They get wolves from the local wolf-pack to protect us from the local wolf-pack!

Great idea! Policemen in the pay of Al Capone will protect you from Capone’s trigger men!

Stalin will protect you from abuses by secret police!

Hugo Chavez will protect the poor from abuses by the rich, even if he has to put in his own rich friends to do it!

Obama will protect us from Wall Street by appointing Wall Street bankers to control banking safety!

“Conspiracy theory” thinking is mainstreaming; the powers that be are flabbergasted

April 19, 2014

Tis was my response to the insightful article at the Daily Bell, found at the link following:

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/35214/Conspiracy-Theory-Goes-Mainstream/

Some of the people at his level of accomplishment have been privy to certain facts shared in the “street” and in “water-cooler” conversations, and in parties, where the rich and powerful chit and chat. Their acquaintances, among whom are the very people referred to in this article, have the idea that he is one of their own “insiders” because he has the position he holds. So they relax and let it slip.

A few “insiders” I have come across only talk to me because I already know this stuff. My wife, a former “diputado” in a Latin American country that is the topic of buzz in anarcho-capitalist and libertarian circles these days, was reluctant to open up when we first met, but of course admitted that these shadowy forces even in the legislatures are some of the worst monsters there are. *Some* of them, not all. Obviously my wife was one; but she got out after at first chance, only one term.

The worst of them seem to be the “Endarkened” Ones, to sue an antonym, who fancy themselves “interplanetary guardians” of Earth, according to one close family member of mine who was bedazzled by one of them during his wanderings. Stuffed goat’s heads all over the house, he said.

De-programming got started when one of Governor Reagan’s aides (yes that Reagan) was enraged when his son came home one day talking about Jesus after one of the principal “Jesus People” groups had spoken to him. He hired out as an expensive operator, to kidnap the adult children of his clients from their “cults”, subject them to bright lights, drug them into stupor, and work on them till they “turned”. He was thrown in the slammer when his work led him to snatch somebody from a Catholic lay Bible study group. His first point of advice to “deprogrammers”: take away their “marked Bibles”.

I could relate other personal tales of knowledge of these guys. One political power player from south of the border told me her dad warned her to always obey them. “Captains and kings”, they call themselves, and “Grey Guards”. I was once invited by email from the “Bavarian Lodge” to consider joining them, together with a stock tip as enticement and inducement and to compromise, surely. I did NOT bite of course. Hint: it is a company that will surely benefit from the government mandates relating to embedded chips, which is in turn surely the “mark of the Beast”.

But anyway, like I always retort as a last resort: When in history, has their *ever*, at all, been a lack of the rich and powerful plotting to become ever richer and more powerful?

Why Niels Gerson Lohman is never going to visit the US again–America’s loss

October 13, 2013

I’m writing this in reaction to the article found here:
http://dasmag.nl/why-i-will-never-return-to-the-usa/

Some of us are battling the idiotic mind-set of the new oligarchs here in the land of the formerly free.

But you could have it worse in between “stacks of Bibles“? Maybe it’s a B&B owned by an enthusiastic couple on the subject, but in those pages are pronouncements of judgments against very un-Christian minds in a post-Christian land (the USA) which is entering its pagan phases.

You were accosted by border patrol agents schooled in the first generation in which Bibles were banned, the Ten Commandments are banned (“Love thy neighbor as thyself”), and prayer is banned. (“…as we forgive others their trespasses against us..”)

The US has lost the Christian heritage that motivated St. Patrick to return to the land of his slavers in Ireland and shame the islands and eventually the entire continent into giving it up.

The love of God motivated John Hess to accept burning at the stake rather than give up his campaign against Papal tyranny, and Martin Luther to defy the same tyrants, and that motivated Isaac Newton to advance science as the best evidence for the Creator for young men.

And it is the Christian principle of the Golden Rule that drew Christians in growing numbers to Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012 (including yours truly), and drives true Biblical Christians today to demand the end to the money-changers’ counterfeit operations in the Federal Reserve, the stealth-tax theft of inflation here and in Europe, and to look upon newcomers with favor.

I look forward to Honduras‘ model cities project, which looks like it is going to happen, because my wife is from there. I happen to know of some of the liberty-minded economists and other experts that were consulted in the planning of the legislation and who have some input into its implementation (I hope). They are liberty minded folks. Possibly they will form new pockets of freedom, and with freedom prosperity, that the small country needs.

In fact, for Niels, I would recommend a visit to the Bay Islands of Roatan and Utila, and if you like quiet, waters that are even more transparent to view the bottom, and nature, you might like Guajara, a smaller and less-visited place. Honduras also has the second-largest coral reef in the world off the coast.

I know that there are a good number of ex-pats in Honduras in the coastal areas and along the roads that lead to the Ruinas de Copan. They are the remains of an ancient Mayan settlement and temple.

The IRS Can’t Plead Incompetence – WSJ.com:
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323844804578529713576219412.html

If it’s incompetence, says Peggy Noonan, then why did they do it so well and so thoroughly?

And if it was to make it more efficient, like one of the more stupid excuses they used at first, then why did they drag their feet so much?

And if it was to treat them just like anybody else, then why did they have just conservative keywords for search?

If there was no politically motivated targeting for mistreatment, then why has NOT ONE “progressive” group complained, despite Republicans in Congress begging for EVEN ONE to come forth?

And if the IRS is concerned about political activity, then why is Media Matters a 501(c)3? A quick check of their web sites finds ONLY Republican candidates smeared, and no other subject matter.

Noonan also gives us a good explanation about why the Surveillance State should be stopped:

Reagan is too much venerated by conservatives today, in my opinion, but if you are on the side of truth you don’t need lies to prop you up. I don’t need to lie about Obama to tell the truth, I don’t need to make up stuff about Nixon to tell the truth about him, but it seems like a great number of Ronald Reagan’s biographers are saying that this new film “The Butler” tells some lies by implication about his character.

Sounds like what they did with the Margaret Thatcher story.

You can’t trust Hollywood anymore.. It’s doing its own “McCarthy-like” witch hunts. Their statist ideas about taxation and regulation don’t have facts or logic to support it, so they can’t argue based on them. What they do lots of, though, is ad hominem arguments that don’t need facts or logic, plus throw in some lies here and there. Wrap the word “fiction” around them to avoid libel lawsuits and CYA.

 

Boy do we ever need Ron Paul’s homeschooling curriculum more than ever. It will even benefit government school students…

Blood on the hands of Obama’s phony propaganda

July 29, 2013
Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

Ron Paul, member of the United States House of Representatives from Texas. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The title line of this note uses a good turn of phrase by Walid Shoebat in the article linked below:

Alinsky smiling up at Obama over “Phony Scandals” line | Walid ShoebatWalid Shoebat:
http://shoebat.com/2013/07/29/alinsky-smiling-up-at-obama-over-phony-scandals-line/

He refers to Obama’s phony “phony scandals” remark, where he said all of the scandals of his administration’s doing are “phony scandals”.

He means:
1.The long list of lies and dirty tricks used for the Unaffordable Act and its PHONY purpose 2.Fast and Furious and its PHONY cover story
2a.The PROMOTION of the managers of the Fast and Furious operation instead of demotion 3.Eric Holder in contempt of court for Fast and Furious stonewalling 4.Obama covering Holder with PHONY “executive privilege” cover 5.Benghazi-gate
6.Benghazi-gate whistleblower suppression
7.The IRS targeting tea party, patriot, and other conservative and libertarian tax status applications for denial by endless questionnaires 8.IRS investigation stalling and stonewalling
9.Suspension WITH PAY for the most visible IRS official in charge of deep-sixing conservative applications
10.The coverup by secret classifications of murders of civilians in Iraq including reporters, part of the files we have seen thanks to whistleblower Bradley Manning
11.The universal Orwellian Big Brother surveillance state, the gathering of data on EVERYBODY in the country, in gross and blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment, expanded by the Patriot Act and expanded by the Obama administration
12.The demotion, harassment, and the prosecution of whistleblowers and the journalists that publish their data, to scare other potential whistleblowers
13.Janet Napolitano’s DHS enemies watch list for federal, state and local law enforcement, listing veterans, conservatives, libertarians like Ron Paul supporters, grouped along with other bad guys as dangerous (We saw in the 2012 presidential campaign who were the more dangerous ones with the blatant illegal, fraudulent and abusive treatment of Ron Paul delegates)
14.The blatant abuse of authority by the president to order a stop to drilling permits in the Gulf, and then the blatant disobedience by the Obama administration to more than one order by a federal judge to open up the drilling permits
15.The use of the DOJ to provoke racial animosity in a highly publicized case, and the blatant disregard for many racists attacks across the country against lighter skinned Americans whose only sin is the color of their skin

And now we have a new scandal uncovered by Walid Shoebat, the attempt by the Obama administration to provoke some big attack by someone of the groups they hate and they want to suppress, to provide a cover for the much bigger attack on what’s left of respect for individual rights in America, and to finish crippling the American economy with a fascist/socialist central-planning regime.

They are also distractions from the way this dictatorship is getting built. The Federal Reserve is the focal point of both economic disruption and money creation, with funds going first to the best connected and the most favored, and that’s not the poor. The poor are pacified with “safety net” promises and demagoguery. They remind me of the cartoon I saw once of the rich man with the beggar, where the rich man is telling the beggar, “I’m sorry I can’t find anything to give you”, with the rich man’s hand searching around inside the beggar’s jacket. Except in this case, the rich man fascist is buying the poor man’s votes, and by the way, the rich man’s votes too, with government subsidies and “tax breaks”. Tax breaks are where they let you keep some of the money they’re stealing.
