The Jericho War

I'd like to put up a brief post as just a follow-up to my last post about the millennia-long world war that wages interminably all about. In my devotional time this morning I was reading the passage that I think does the best in elucidating the ungrafted church's mentality and behavior in the face of the roiling evil that spews regularly from a fully Catholicized World . Here, I cannot go any further without sharing a good part of it with you: Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the ima

The Old Very Hot World War

In my last post "The New Very Hot Civil War" I made mention of the metastasizing violence marauding across the United States, threatening to split the country apart -- literally, with secession movements and everything. I do consider serious qualifications about that whole thing that mitigate any of that actually happening, but the fear and loathing is festering and steaming all the same. As much as people try to slough off its lethality, it is resulting in people dying. I could put up an entire webzine piece just to document those ways. In fact I kind-of have, with a rough sketch of the standard-practice institutionalized human sacrificing that occurs on a regular basis... Around the globe. ...And has been going on for, well, several millennia now. Sorry, not new . Sorry, but World War II was just a particularly loud manifestation of the warfare. A couple weeks ago I was thinking about this and thinking about the Twilight Zone  episode "The Howling Man." You may

The New Very Hot Civil War

Passions are getting very heated right now in the present civil war between the North and the South. Literally. About a week ago the Texas governor decided to erect his own "wall" to impede the flow of migrants pouring in at the southern border. The "wall" was pretty much razor wire and a prominent National Guard presence. A few days ago the US Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, decided to remand the case, if I'm not mistaken, which essentially leaves it open for the federal government to prevent the governor from doing what he did. The governor responded by doing it anyway. Now the president of the US has given the governor an ultimatum to remove the "wall," and intimating he may indeed federalize that state's law enforcement personnel at the border ordering them to stand down. Will the governor call his bluff, and will the president follow through on his threat which means, which means what?... It is getting hot and heavy with the civil war raging rig

The Racket Humming Along Very Nicely Right Now

Image
I absolutely had to put up a post simply with the image I saw at the ZeroHedge piece about yet another guy blapping about how rotten all the dollar exploitation is nowadays (a very veritable truism certainly) and how much we all need to move our asses and get into gold or crypto (just as veritable a truism that this is just as rotten). It doesn't matter what it is, the Roman Catholic Ecclesiocracy Racket will still be exactly like the image depicts. (Forgive me for not knowing who to afford attribution, but here is the page with that story and the image there about halfway down.) As I looked at this thing in all its splendid glory, I could only think of the rule established in all Roman Catholic dominated towns in Europe through the last few centuries, as really pretty much all of them were even at the height of the Protestant Reformation. The rule stated that no building could be erected that was higher or as high as the main Roman Catholic church building or cathedral. Really,

What It Is, 2024 Edition

With the year 2024 looking like it will be something of an explosive one, I thought I'd just direct you to a piece from Off-Guardian  yesterday, a fine exposition by its editor Kit Knightly. It does a pretty decent job of sharing precisely why so many people, especially people in some positions of power, do incredibly stupid things. In simple terms it is because they are so beholden to the Big Lie to which all World inhabitants and all System mandarins must give their utmost fealty. Knightly's piece had me considering it a sort-of present-day rendition of Tupper Saussy's epilogue in his book Tennessee Waltz called "The Politics of Witchcraft." In that very real sense anyone who is in a position of authority in Cain's Legacy are bound by what he called the "lie contract." Thing is Knightly does not do the one thing I don't think he can do without fearing some kind of repercussion -- hey, no worries, I always fear some sorts of repercussions for w

Suffering the Stupid Person, Part II

I really thought I should add some more thoughts to a post I put up a couple days ago that could easily be called "The Die Hard  Factor." I'd mentioned the movie Die Hard was so compelling because the filmmaker did a fine job of showcasing some phenomenally stupid people, and I believe a big part of that was their skill in portraying them in all their self-absorbed exhibitionist glory. "Look at how danged smart I am while I go full bore into something mindbogglingly stupid that will likely end in my demise!..." Ouch. Makes me think of the Darwin Awards, you know, those stories about people doing exceptionally stupid things that only end in something very, very painful for them. Hate to say it, but this makes me think too of that quote, you may have seen it before too: Death and stupid people who don't know they're stupid are the same. It is only painful for everyone else. That's really the essence of this "Part II" post. Other people's

Suffering the Stupid Person

We enjoyed one of the best Christmas movies ever the other night, Die Hard  with Bruce Willis, from 1988. I know, I know, everyone's arguing about whether it is really a Christmas movie or not, but it is. It happens at Christmas time, there are Christmas songs in it, and the most important reason is that John McClane is, in a very profound sense, a messiah character almost giving his life to rescue people. I know, I know, lots of movies feature their action heroes kick-boxing and blowing away bad guys to save others, but this is just different. For one thing he does walk across broken glass causing his feet to bleed badly. In everything he does he is a sort of living sacrifice and employs great courage and tenacity to give of himself to get the job done. Plus he uses tremendous insight, knowledge, and wisdom to make the things happen he must make happen to do that job. Just amazingness from an action hero throughout. But this is not the only reason the movie so thoroughly enjoyable
