Signs Of The Times: Memorial Day Blasphemy Preached By Church

with 2 comments

May 30, 2011: Laurence M. Vance / LewRockwell.com – May 30, 2011

The Sunday before Memorial Day is not one of my favorites.

The “patriotic” things that go on in churches in celebration or acknowledgment of Memorial Day are downright sickening.

Churches encourage their veterans to wear their military uniforms.

Special recognition is given to those who “served.” Prayers are offered on behalf of the troops, not that they would cease fighting foreign wars, but for God to keep them out of harm’s way and protect them. Mention is made of the troops defending our freedoms.

Churches decorate their grounds and the inside of their buildings with U.S. flags. Sometimes it is a few large flags hanging from the ceiling or adorning the walls. Sometimes it is many small flags stuck in the ground near the church entrance. Sometimes it is both. Some congregations are asked to recite the pledge of allegiance.

Churches sing hymns of worship to the state instead of hymns of worship about the person of Christ and his work. Songs like “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee,” “America the Beautiful,” “We Salute You, Land of Liberty,” and “This Is My Country.” Some churches go even farther and sing “God Bless the U.S.A.” or “God Bless America.” Too many churches sing the blasphemous “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

I know these practices are widespread because of the scores of people that have e-mailed me in disgust about what occurred in their churches on the Sunday before Memorial Day.

In most cases it is not even necessary to visit a church on the Sunday preceding Memorial Day to know what goes on inside. Just look at the sign outside of the church. Instead of a verse of Scripture or an announcement of an upcoming event, you are more likely to see some patriotic slogan, often with a Christian theme.

I have personally seen two signs this year that I find particularly offensive, not only to my Christian faith, but to reality:

Pray for the Troops,
God be with them.

The American soldier and Jesus Christ,
one gives his life for your freedom,
the other for your soul.

Yes, we should pray for the troops. The Bible tells us in 1 Timothy 2:1 that “supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.” But what should we pray? That God would bless the troops while they injure, maim, kill, and destroy property where they have no business being in the first place?

That God would be with them while they wage unjust and immoral foreign wars? Since when does wearing a military uniform excuse killing someone you don’t know in his own territory that was no threat to any American until the U.S. military invaded and occupied his country? How about instead praying that the troops come home where they belong or that Christian families stop supplying cannon fodder to the military?

That Christ gave his life for our souls is indisputable, but do American soldiers give their lives for our freedoms? You know, the freedoms we have steadily lost since the troops started defending our freedoms after 9/11? Has there been in American history any foreign war, military action, CIA covert action, or intervention of any kind in any country that was for the purpose of defending our freedoms mentioned in the Bill of Rights? Of course not.

Not one Iraqi or Afghan killed by U.S. forces was ever a threat to our freedoms. The troops don’t defend our freedoms, and neither do they fight “over there” so we don’t have to fight “over here.” And I can’t think of anything more blasphemous than mentioning Jesus Christ, the Lord, the Son of God, the Prince of Peace in the same breath as a U.S. soldier who unjustly bombs, maims, kills, and then dies in vain and for a lie.

It is time for Christians to slay the golden calf of the military. Christians should stop joining the military. They should stop encouraging their young men to enlist. They should stop being military chaplains and medics. American churches must be demilitarized.

It is a terrible blight on evangelical Christianity that our churches have sent more soldiers to the Middle East than missionaries. If Christians are so concerned about the threat of Islamofascism, then what better way to confront it than with the Gospel of Christ?

The Dog Poet: Looking For Dr Pangloss In An Orwellian Nightmare

leave a comment »

April 8, 2011: Les Visible / Reflections In A Petri Dish – April 8, 2011

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

“May your noses always be cold and wet.”

Some seek to evade and appease Draconian oppression; hoping it will find their fellows before it finds them. Maybe things will change before that happens. There’s always hope. Some would rather strike blows against the empire but recognize the futility of individual action as any more than a rallying point once they’ve been dispensed with.

Of course, others would prefer to become barnacles on the great ship of state, or occupy a near religious position of ‘nearer the trough to me, nearer to me’ and then there are those who are the direct practitioners of the mischief to begin with. A few choose to live outside the matter entirely, also hoping that mischance or pervasion won’t somehow sweep them up in the net.

There’s no getting around the fact that from a certain wide perspective, things have gone horribly wrong. I’m no Dr. Pangloss, but I do try to believe that everything is perfect; I just can’t see it. I don’t mean to say that everything is actually perfect; it would take a rare and enlightened mind to make that case. What I mean is that everything is outworking and in-working toward perfection, as it takes its own sweet time about it (grin). Well, you don’t have to worry about the seeming lassitude of the cosmos on that account anymore. Time is speeding up and conditions are keeping pace.

If things seem to be moving faster, it’s not because they’ve all of a sudden gained some mysterious acceleration, even if that might be true to a degree. The fact is that for a few decades now, deluded individuals and groups have been industrious about setting the stage for an Orwellian nightmare and now they are on the move. Part of that is the result of emerging powers at other points on the Earth. Part of it is the revolutionary fever that is a reaction to naked oppression and part of it is the population/resources dynamic. My take is that it’s only the cosmos driving the good, the bad and the indifferent toward their appointed destiny. The mysterious power of the universe is pressing on everyone, externally and internally, to declare the nature of their being and intentions, so that they can be sorted out for the benefit of the coming age; an age of universal brotherhood.

I’ve seen any number of people who carry on about how the unions, especially government workers, have too much of what too little there is. That is hardly the problem, no matter how you look at it, unless you actually believe the rich and powerful still don’t have enough and deserve more. Maybe you believe that anyone can be successful and rich if they just apply themselves and the reason they are not, is that they do not apply themselves. That’s bullshit. The bankers play with the money flow and create untenable conditions that make such a scenario more and more difficult by the day.

It’s not the unions and the entitlement programs and the demanding poor, along with the prosperous (snicker) middle class that is the problem. The problem is the blood sucking corporations who moved the manufacturing base into Third World sweat shops to maximize profits. The problem is the banks that squeeze every dime in fees they can get out of the population on which they feed and they are assisted in this by the outlaw, law makers who pocket their portion of the swag as a result. The problem is the media, which is an extension of the government, which is an extension of the corporations and banks and which spins transparent lies and discord among the populace. In other words, while you are getting the shit beat out of you, you hear, ‘who are you going to believe, me or your lying flesh’? The problem is insane wars for profit, which take the canon fodder and war expenses out of the lives and pockets of the people, who have little say in the matter and then the arms merchants, bankers and sundry rake in the swag and nothing comes back.

No capitalist system can prosper or endure for long without a prosperous middle class. This is what America ‘had’. Greed however, never loses its appetite and so the corporations eventually bought the governments, lock stock and barrel, even though they owned the majority shares to begin with.

The absolute disgrace of people making billions of dollars a year and ‘actually’ paying few, if any taxes, is a symptom of terminal illness. Without fair and able dealing, the table upon which it takes place is soon sold off for parts. Your system is a dead man walking and that is why perpetual war is the only reaction possible, for the people at the top. Meanwhile, a fascist police presence and constant over reaction, become the order of the day at home; grope fests at the airport to protect you from something that doesn’t exist, except when the government needs to stage it, in order to ratchet up the abuse, random highway stops for the citizens, while the given reason for them moves with impunity where it will.

It’s a simple process to stop the whole thing. The public simply agrees not to pay their taxes, in emulation of the ones who put them in the situation they are in and the public refuses to go to work, thereby bringing down the government. You don’t need guns and you don’t need tanks or airplanes, all you need is to stop contributing to the operating funds of the machine that is grinding you to powder, while it poisons the world in which you live. You can’t do this after you are dead. You have to do it while you are still alive.

It’s simple. It’s extremely simple. The problem is that any movement that comes along to benefit the people is immediately co-opted by those oppressing them, who bribe and threaten the leaders. Maybe you could do without leaders for a little while and activate some kind of stadium wave, flash mob principle, except, instead of showing up somewhere, you don’t show up at all and instead of rising in sequential order, you don’t rise at all. Then perhaps the cosmos will lift you up? I don’t know. It’s worth a shot. Look at where you are now. Intimidation is the nature of the beast in these times. Intimidation is government and corporate policy. I suggest that an entire country that suddenly refuses to participate can be pretty intimidating too.

What follows this is that you very swiftly have to demand the dissolution of the central banks and a coming to heel for the corporations. Government power has to be limited and the original documents have to be brought back into operation. In order to do this you have to get rid of The Supreme Court and you have to, top to bottom, clean out the court system. You have to get rid of every politician who doesn’t support the public’s revolution and you have to put constraints on what’s left as well. Israel has to be cut loose completely, because it is an organized crime syndicate that’s taken control of the country(s). State rights need to become preeminent so that localities can live with what they want to live with and not what the majority prefers go elsewhere. Political correctness needs to go to the auto da fe.

Can America and the Crown Colonies accomplish this? They still think their real enemies come from a scorpion infested wilderness of tribal nomads, instead of being home grown. If you can’t accomplish it, you are screwed. You might as well make your funeral preparations now, unless the cosmos wants to step in and the cosmos is stepping in but that means; earthquakes, plagues, famines, wars and marauding bands of road warriors picking the bones of the carcass.

On the one hand, it looks like it all just has to come down and frontier justice needs to be extended to the predators. On the other hand, perhaps that’s all going to be taken care of. On the other hand, I don’t know. These are just things to think about and consider. In any case, the people who most need to read these things will never find their way here but, maybe the cosmos has plans in that regard too.

It comes down to what you can live with. It’s a matter of how much you can take. You’ve got to make up your own mind and so do your neighbors. These predators are not going to suddenly stop being what they are. That’s their nature too. Well, it’s actually a perversion upon Nature and Lady Nature is going to have something to say about that as well. I don’t know where the safe places are and I don’t know what shape it’s going to take. That’s not my department. Stop, look and listen.

March 7, 2011: “America Is NOT Broke”: Michael Moore Speaks In Madison, WI — March 5, 2011

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: “Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe so that you’ll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had, America is not broke. Not by a long shot. The country is awash in wealth and cash. It’s just that it’s not in your hands. It has been transferred, in the greatest heist in history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich.” – Michael Moore

Clinton: Military-Industrial Complex “Losing The Information War”

leave a comment »

March 3, 2011: Paul Joseph Watson / Prison Planet.com - March 3, 2011

And give credit to the thousands of websites around the world getting the truth out for all to see- SJH

Secretary of State warns fellow globalists that US corporate media propaganda is being crushed by “real news” networks…

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a tacit admission during a US Foreign Policy Priorities committee meeting yesterday, arguing that the State Department needs more money because the US military-industrial complex is “losing the information war” to the likes of Russia Today and Al Jazeera due to the US corporate media having completely abandoned “real news”.

“We are in an information war and we are losing that war,” warned Clinton, in a bid to rustle up more money to fund propaganda to compete with foreign news media, sending a clear message that stations such as Russia Today, which regularly provides a platform to the likes of Alex Jones, Max Keiser, Wayne Madsen, Paul Craig Roberts and Webster Tarpley, are winning the infowar against the globalists.

An example of how frightened the establishment is of Russia Today occurred when adverts for the network encouraging viewers think about both sides of a story were banned by US airports last year.

Clinton noted that, “The Russians have opened up an English language network. I’ve seen it in a couple of countries and it’s quite instructive,” referring to Russia Today, which is now seen all over the world and is a trailblazer in reporting hardcore subjects that the castrated US media dare not touch, such as 9/11 truth, the Bilderberg Group meetings, as well as globalist involvement in hijacking the wave of revolutions currently sweeping across the Middle East and North Africa.

While the US media remains obsessed with polarizing left-right talking head nonsense, the likes of Al Jazeera, China’s CCTV and Russia Today are “winning” and attracting more viewers because they concentrate on reporting “real news,” according to Clinton.

“You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which is not particularly informative,” said the former First Lady. “Al Jazeera has been the leader in literally changing people’s minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective,” added Clinton.

“I remember having an Afghan general tell me that the only thing he thought about Americans is that all the men wrestled and the women walked around in bikinis because the only TV he ever saw was Baywatch and World Wide Wrestling,” said Clinton, acknowledging the fact that American television is now so dumbed down that it is negatively shaping international perceptions of the United States.

“Our private media, particularly cultural programming often works at counter purposes to what we truly are as Americans,” said Clinton, alluding to the fact that US television has now reached such a lowest common denominator level that it is harming the very fabric of society.

Of course, Clinton, a CFR member and a leading globalist, couldn’t care less about harming the fabric of society, but she is obviously panicked about the fact that the US corporate media is now so distrusted and disparaged that it is rapidly losing its value to the US military-industrial complex as a vehicle through which to sell wars and hoodwink the public into swallowing official explanations behind staged crises that are used to eviscerate their freedoms and livelihoods.

That’s why Clinton is railing against Republican efforts to cut the State Department budget in half, as well as using Twitter and other social media to spread US military-industrial complex propaganda via twitter feeds in Arabic and Farsi. In addition, according to a recent report by Computerworld, “The U.S. government contracted HBGary Federal for the development of software which could create multiple fake social media profiles to manipulate and sway public opinion on controversial issues by promoting propaganda.”
