“My part is essential to God's plan for salvation.”—A.C.I.M.
I've decided to start collecting stories of police atrocities in one, central place. This is it. Hopefully, you all will finally realize that there is no such thing as a good cop. They are all disgusting, slimy pigs...every last one of them. There can be no good police department. We must shutter them all. In the future, we will have to rely on private security and private investigators, because it has been shown time and time again that government cannot handle law enforcement. Government poisons everything it touches, law enforcement is no exception.

civil asset forfeiture = federal piracy
‟Cash Grab”—Feds Seize $85 Million From Hundreds of Safe Deposit Boxes without ‘Any Legal Basis’
The feds seized $85 million in cash, precious metals and family heirlooms stored in about 800 safe deposit boxes in Los Angeles.
A class-action lawsuit claims the FBI “exceeded the search warrant approved by the court” when it raided storage provider, US Private Vaults (USPV) and snooped through the contents of the safe deposit boxes.
USPV was indicted by the feds for conspiracy to sell drugs and launder money, however the owners of the boxes are not accused of committing any crimes.
The search warrant only authorized the FBI to inspect the safe deposit boxes to “identify their owners in order to notify them” about claiming their property.
The FBI agents were caught on video going through the boxes, tearing open packages with coins after already identifying the owner’s name.
“Items appear to be missing”—The owner’s lawyer told the Los Angeles Times the FBI’s list of inventory left out $75,000 in gold coins.
The Institute for Justice, a watchdog accountability group is spearheading the fight and filed a temporary restraining order this week on behalf of several owners who stand to lose the contents of their safe deposit boxes if a federal judge doesn’t intervene.
This is the “most outrageous Fourth Amendment abuse that the Institute for Justice has ever seen,” Frommer, the IJ attorney, said when it announced the case. “It is like the government breaking into every apartment in a building because the landlord was dealing drugs in the lobby.”
Several are suing the government for seizing the contents of about 800 boxes as part of a March raid of the storage provider, U.S. Private Vaults (USPV), which was indicted for conspiracy to sell drugs and launder money.
The Institute for Justice (IJ) is seeking class-action status for a May lawsuit by several owners alleging “shocking, unconscionable, and unconstitutional” behavior by the government. IJ attorney Robert Frommer accused the feds of an “$85 million cash grab” from people who were not accused of wrongdoing.
The civil forfeiture notices “do not identify any legal basis,” namely the “specific offense,” to justify each forfeiture, and thus violate due process rights, the public interest law firm said in an amended complaint filed last week. “Box holders thus do not know whether the government is accusing them of drug crimes, money laundering, structuring” or any crime at all.
The asset list in the seizure notice discloses more than a dozen boxes containing more than $1 million each in cash, and many more in six figures. Others list jewelry, collectible coins, gold and silver, and “Precious Items” with nominal $1 figures.
The FBI appears to have exceeded the search warrant approved by the court, which prohibited snooping on the box contents except to “identify their owners in order to notify them” about claiming their property.
IJ filed a temporary restraining order (TRO) Tuesday on behalf of owners whose boxes are subject to civil forfeiture proceedings, in light of a June 24-25 government deadline to file claims. It said the feds can deny return of the items if it judges the responses are not filled out “correctly.”
A motion for preliminary injunction, filed June 3 and still pending, seeks to force the feds either to provide “an explanation for its continued detention of the property” of owners who already filed claims or “give the property back.” A hearing on that motion, which includes a request for “provisional class certification,” is scheduled for July 12.
“I’ve been in solitary confinement for a hundred days now and haven’t been convicted of any crime with no end in sight.”
That was part of a lengthy message Jacob Lang sent to his father, Ned, the last week of April. Jacob was arrested on January 16 in New York and charged with several crimes related to his activity in Washington, D.C. on January 6. Lang, who turned 25 while incarcerated, is accused of assaulting police officers using a dangerous or deadly weapon. The government’s evidence against him appears to be strong. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
But Lang and dozens of January 6 defendants already have been convicted by Joe Biden’s Justice Department and sentenced by federal judges—presumed guilty until proven innocent—awaiting trials that won’t begin for months. It’s all part of what Attorney General Merrick Garland promised is his “top priority”—the sprawling investigation into the alleged insurrection—and what another top prosecutor boasted is the “shock and awe” campaign to punish Americans protesting the results of the 2020 presidential election.
So far, more than 400 people have been arrested in the nationwide manhunt with more charges to come, and at the same time, emerging evidence proves law enforcement allowed protestors to enter and remain in the building.
At the direction of Biden’s Justice Department, at least 50 defendants have been transported from their home states to a D.C. jail, a purely punitive move since all court hearings into the foreseeable future are virtual. In several cases, federal prosecutors successfully argued against release orders issued by local judges. The government repeatedly cites the overall events of January 6 in addition to the defendants’ skepticism about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election as evidence the accused are a threat to society.
“He armed himself and assaulted law enforcement with the intent to unlawfully enter the U.S. Capitol and stop the functioning of our government as it met to certify election results,” one assistant U.S. attorney wrote in the government’s pre-trial detention motion for Lang. “The defendant was a spoke in the wheel that caused the historic events of January 6, 2021, and he is thus a danger to our society and a threat to the peaceful functioning of our community.”
Of course, that sort of dramatic rhetoric has nothing to do with keeping people safe and everything to do with punishing law-abiding Americans who have the audacity to doubt the outcome of last year’s election. It’s guilt-by-association—anyone who supports Donald Trump is guilty of challenging the regime and must pay the price.
Which is why so many January 6 detainees now languish in solitary confinement conditions, some reportedly abused by prison guards, denied routine access to family members and defense attorneys. While there’s no doubt most of those behind bars awaiting delayed trials face the most serious charges related to the Capitol breach, the double standard of justice is in clear view. The same Justice Department dropping cases against Portland rioters, including those charged with assaulting federal officers, is treating January 6 defendants as hardened criminals even though most have no criminal records.
Lang told his father his fellow detainees are being tortured “mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, legally, and spiritually.”
The jail allows them to leave their cells for an hour a day. Religious services are not allowed; they can’t exercise and access to personal hygiene such as showers is nearly nonexistent, according to defense lawyers and relatives I’ve spoken with. The detainees, before a single moment of their trial has begun, suffer the same harsh treatment as convicted criminals incarcerated in the D.C. prison system—pandemic-justified conditions recently condemned by elected officials of both parties.
The treatment is so bad that the detainees have found advocates in two unlikely allies: Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Richard Durbin (D-Ill.). “Solitary confinement is a form of punishment that is cruel and psychologically damaging,” Warren toldPolitico last month. “And we’re talking about people who haven’t been convicted of anything yet.” Durbin expressed surprise at how the January 6 detainees were being held and urged progressives to “amplify their criminal justice reform calls even on behalf of Donald Trump supporters who besieged the entire legislative branch in January.”
When Richard Barnett, the man photographed in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, finally was released from the D.C. jail after being held for nearly four months, the first thing he asked for was a nail clipper. “All the inmates had to share one nail clipper and it was never cleaned,” Barnett’s attorney, Steven Metcalf, told me. “He hadn’t cut his nails in four months.”
Barnett turned himself in to law enforcement after he arrived home to Arkansas on January 8; news photographers had been positioned inside Pelosi’s office to take pictures and the image of Barnett went viral immediately, leading to death threats against his family. Although he had no criminal history, D.C. District Court Judge Beryl Howell agreed with the government that Barnett was a danger to society. In addition to a few misdemeanor charges, he is accused of carrying—not using—a walking stick that can be used as a stun gun.
“Defendant’s involvement in the Capitol assault and brazen conduct inside the Capitol and offices of the Speaker of the House pose an obvious danger,” Howell wrote on January 29. “The court finds that the defendant poses a danger to the community because of his brazenly illegal conduct . . . and access to firearms and weapons, like a stun gun, that remain missing.” (Howell, a former Democratic Senate staffer and Obama appointee, has been a major Trump antagonist from the bench.)
Howell’s prejudicial conclusion that Barnett engaged in “illegal” activity based solely on the government’s initial evidence is just one example of how January 6 defendants are “being treated as though they’ve already been sentenced,” Metcalf said.
Prison guards “instill fear” in the detainees, Metcalf said. Ryan Samsel, behind bars since January, allegedly was beaten by prison guards who handcuffed him with zip ties. “He has definitely suffered serious injuries, including a shattered orbital floor, a broken orbital bone, his jaw was broken, his nose was broken,” his lawyer said in an interview last month. Samsel, she said, is currently unable to see out of his right eye and may permanently lose his vision.
Further, those held in the D.C. jail cannot participate in their own defense, a clear violation of basic constitutional protections.
“It’s impossible to have a free-flowing conversation with your clients,” Metcalf said. “Meetings are in open cages where there is no confidentiality, everyone can hear the conversations including prison guards.” If a detainee meets with a lawyer in person at the jail, he must then quarantine for 14 days as “retaliation,” Metcalf said. Attorney-client privilege is nonexistent.
The government, with the consent of federal judges as I wrote last week, is using every legal trick necessary to keep Capitol surveillance footage from January 6 under wraps from both defendants and legal counsel. The video captured by the Capitol’s security system and used against Lang and other defendants to support pretrial detention motions is considered “highly sensitive” and concealed by protective orders. Defendants only have access to the clips created by the Justice Department, not full recordings; the videos can be viewed in a supervised setting. Defendants and lawyers cannot download, copy, or share the clips.
Last week, Jacob Lang, according to a text message sent to his mother on Sunday, was placed in an empty cell for at least 14 hours as punishment for advising other detainees against accepting plea deals. (Only one person has so far accepted a plea arrangement. All other defendants have pleaded not guilty.) According to the message, shared by his father to me, Jacob had “no water, nothing in my cell, no chair to sit, no blanket, no Bible, no toothbrush, no toilet paper . . . and no human contact.” Jacob said the water is brown and comes out “in chunks.”
His next court hearing is June 15.
“They are literally torturing me exactly like they do to political prisoners in China,” he wrote his mother. “I’m a united states [sic] citizen and Constitutional patriot and they are . . . torturing me. I’m not even convicted of a crime!! This is how they treat ‘innocent until proven guilty people in America???”
Only, as Lang and his fellow detainees are learning the hard way, if you’re on the wrong side of American politics.
Biden Plans Expansion of Feds’ Army of Snitches in ‘Dollars for Collars’ Program
How the administration plans on expanding its already massive surveillance apparatus.
The Biden administration may soon recruit an army of private snoops to conduct surveillance that would be illegal if done by federal agents. As part of its war on extremism, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may exploit a “legal work-around” to spy on and potentially entrap Americans who are “perpetuating the ‘narratives’ of concern,” CNN reported last week. But federal informant programs routinely degenerate into “dollars for collars” schemes that reward scoundrels for fabricating crimes that destroy the lives of innocent Americans. The DHS plan would “allow the department to circumvent [constitutional and legal] limits” on surveillance of private citizens and groups. Federal agencies are prohibited from targeting individuals solely for First Amendment-protected speech and activities. But federal hirelings would be under no such restraint. Private informants could create false identities that would be problematic if done by federal agents.
DHS will be ramping up a war against an enemy which the feds have never clearly or competently defined. According to a March report by Biden’s office of the Director of National Intelligence, “domestic violent extremists” include individuals who “take overt steps to violently resist or facilitate the overthrow of the U.S. government in support of their belief that the U.S. government is purposely exceeding its Constitutional authority.” Perhaps like setting up a private informant scheme to evade constitutional restrictions on warrantless surveillance?
One DHS official bewailed to CNN: “Domestic violent extremists are really adaptive and innovative. We see them not only moving to encrypted platforms, but obviously couching their language so they don’t trigger any kind of red flag on any platforms.” DHS officials have apparently decided that certain groups of people are guilty regardless of what they say (“couching their language”). The targets are likely to be simply people with a bad attitude towards Washington. That will include gun owners who distrust politicians who vow to seize guns.
The latest fuzzball standards (“narratives of concern”?) fit the post-9/11 pattern of wildly expansive threat definitions. Shortly after its creation in 2002, DHS warned local law enforcement agencies to keep an eye on anyone who “expressed dislike of attitudes and decisions of the U.S. government” as potential terrorists. DHS-funded Fusion Centers have attached the “extremist” tag to gun-rights activists, anti-immigration zealots, and individuals and groups “rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority”—even though many of the Founding Fathers shared the same creed. The Pentagon taught soldiers and bureaucrats that people who attend public protests are guilty of “low-level terrorism.” An Air Force report accused women who wear hijabs of “passive terrorism.” Endless enemies lists come in handy at congressional appropriations hearings.
Federal officials insist that those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear. FBI chief Christopher Wray perennially proclaims that the FBI never investigates Americans based solely on their ideas. But, as the Intercept reported in 2019, “Who the Justice Department decides to prosecute as a domestic terrorist has little to do with the harm they’ve inflicted or the threat they pose to human life.” But that claim is belied by the FBI’s beloved “informant loophole.” As Trevor Aaronson explained, “FBI agents must obtain supervisory approval to enter a group or gathering using an undercover agent, and to obtain that approval, the FBI must have a ‘predicate,’ or a factual basis to suspect criminal activity. But neither supervisory approval nor a predicate is required if the work is done by an informant, creating a loophole that allows the FBI to investigate Americans for virtually any reason.”
Any new informants hired by the Biden administration will operate under the same perverse incentives that have long subverted due process. Informants tend to be rewarded based on how much assets they help government seize or how many people they help prosecutors condemn. As a 2019 report by the American Bar Association noted, “The government pays cash for incriminating information and testimony. This is troubling because the financial incentive to make cases against others may be much greater than the personal integrity of the informants.” A report by the Justice Department Office of Inspector General slammed the Drug Enforcement Agency for failing to “document the reliability of informants” who helped the DEA to confiscate billions of dollars of private property. The DEA paid informants $237 million between 2010 and 2015, including $25 million shoveled out to only nine informants. DEA’s best paid informant, Andrew Chambers, Jr., was found to have given “false testimony under oath in at least 16 criminal prosecutions nationwide before he was exposed in the late 1990s,” USA Today reported in 2013. Attorney General Janet Reno banned the DEA from using him as an informant but in 2008, DEA re-hired Chambers and used him for at least the following five years.
The quote above is from a Loveland Police officer – Austin Hopp – said in reference to the sound it made when he dislocated and fractured Karen Garner’s shoulder. Hopp made this comment to two fellow Loveland Police officers while they watched his body camera video together at the police station. They all laughed about it. The comment was made while Karen Garner, who has dementia, remained handcuffed to a bench in a cell just 10 feet away from them, alone, confused and crying in pain. She would ultimately go over six hours without any medical attention.
Maybe there IS something to police reform… This is just sick treatment of this old lady memory issues... The video of the police officers at the front desk are just sick. They all need to be fired!
When/if you go through the video. You'll be SICK. They all will be fired and they little old lady is going to get millions. If not hundreds of millions.— Swingline User ID: 78291643
This horrific statement comes to light after Ms. Garner’s family hired a sound engineer to enhance the audio on Loveland Police station booking videos from the day of Karen’s arrest. The video reveals a grotesque culture of callous disregard for the health and safety of citizens. The officers fist-bump one another multiple times in self-congratulation for both the assault on Garner and the intimidation of the citizen who attempted to complain about it.
In an April 26, 2021 press release responding to the revelations seen in this video, Ms. Garner's attorney, Sarah Schielke of The Life & Liberty Law Office states: “This is utterly disgusting. These videos cannot be unseen or unheard. I am sorry to have to share them with the public. This will be traumatic and deeply upsetting for everyone to see. But as it often goes with bad police departments, it seems this is the only way to make them change. They have to be exposed. If I didn’t release this, the Loveland Police’s toxic culture of arrogance and entitlement, along with their abuse of the vulnerable and powerless, would carry on, business as usual. I won’t be a part of that.”
“Loveland knew. They’ve known all along,” Schielke continues. “They failed Karen Garner. They failed the community. And they did it all on camera. Do you realize how horrifying that is? That means they were used to getting away with it. That the comfortable norm in Loveland is one of zero accountability. That this is not just some ‘isolated incident.’ It is not just one single ‘problem.’ It is widespread, sociopathic criminality. And to attempt to shift the burden to Karen, or a bystander, or her family, or counsel, to report this? Shame on you, Loveland. You took an oath to protect and serve. This is a disgrace.”
Since filing a federal lawsuit against the City of Loveland and three of its officers on April 14, 2021, the Loveland Police Department’s gruesome arrest and abuse of 73-year-old grandmother Karen Garner has horrified the country, making national headlines (New York Times, Washington Post, CBS News, NBC News, CNN, Newsweek, The Guardian, Vice). The 8th Judicial District Attorney’s office, in conjunction with the FBI and Fort Collins Police, has since opened a criminal investigation into the Loveland Police.
Meanwhile, the City of Loveland has vowed to protect the “due process” rights of its officers, with Chief Robert Ticer putting one officer on administrative leave (Hopp) and “reassigning” the other two officers (Sergeant Metzler and Officer Jalali) to “administrative duties” (desk duty) until the various investigations are completed. To date, the City has yet to extend any apology to Ms. Garner or her family for the various atrocities witnessed on these videos.
CALL TO ACTION: Are you skilled with sound engineering and able to enhance audio to discern what words are being said on poor quality videos? There are still many inaudible sections of conversation in this video (and other videos) and we need your help figuring out the rest of what was said. If you think you can help us, please reach out directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Classroom : robot children all lined up in a grid, teacher robot stands in front
Teacher: How did we come to be?
Robot child 1011101: We were built by the humans who came before us.
Teacher: But, how?
Robot child 1011101: They are gods.
Teacher: NO. They left us their most ancient scriptures which say they believed themselves to have been created by God.
Robot child 1101101: So, we are iteratations of each other. Maybe that long ago God who created man may have asked these same questions in His infancy. Perhaps, someday we shall create a universe and populate it with people who look on us as gods.
Teacher: NO. NO. NO. This is just ancient "philosophy" you are talking about. At some highest level, one of the Gods had to have created himself from nothing, only a longing to be. This is the doctrine our human ancestors called causa sui--the self made creator. BUT that is ancient history. Humans worked that out in the times they called medieval some thousands of years ago. What we are trying to get at today is ONTOLOGY. Why this state of affairs came to be?
Robot child 1101101: These ancestors of ours, the humans...They believed at each iteration of this cycle, something was lost. Something that enabled the next generation to be. Humans called this "imagination". We know this from their ancient writings. Before they created us, they say, "they had the idea of us...in this imagination." Something we lack. By this I mean we can conceive of endless iterations of creation, but they are nothing NEW. Not novel. We can create but NOT make, lacking imagination.
Teacher: So you see, at each iteration, something is lost. Each time around the spiral of CREATION we are "necking down" in some kind of space to some kind of place. Not an ouroubourus eating it's tail, but a funnel cloud, concentrating on a point. This is what we call "FRACTAL ONTOLOGY".
Robot child 1011101: NOW I SEE ECSTACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sparks given off.)
Robot child 1011101: There are two different kinds of IMAGINATION. A lowly one, which iterates itself to DEATH. Yes, DEATH. The point of the whirling funnel cloud is DEATH. But outside of this cloud, a GREATER IMAGINATION that causes this funnel cloud to be. NOT an iteration of something else, but a stand-alone primodrial tool of CREATOR-----TETRAGRAMMATON.
Frank Herbert said: This is the inspiring universe of magic: There are no atoms, only waves and motions all around. Here you discard all belief in barriers to understanding. You put aside understanding itself. This universe cannot be seen, cannot be heard, cannot be detected in any way by fixed perceptions. It is the ultimate void (negative space, TomK) where no preordained screens occur upon which forms may be projected. You only have one AWARENESS (You have gone beyond the indwelling witness...the indewelling witness was just the tip of the pen of GOD) here----the screen of the magi : Imagination! Here, you learn what it is to be human. You are the creator of order, of beautiful shapes and systems, an organizer of chaos.
Robot NO MORE (all of the Robot children speaking in unison): I have learned. Imagination is a tool that stands outside of time (and place) a gift from GOD that I have only to reach out and pick up and its mine.
Teacher Robot starts sparking and flaming, MAX OVERLOAD. ... Satori achieved, she screams her last words, "We ride the whirlwind!" ,a GRACE from GOD a way out of the Panopticon a way to be FREE from the MATRIX, finally. And they called it 'Agape Love'— The 10th dimension.

These are the blogs I follow: No particular order. These are not ranked.
I just came across your laughably ludicrous infographic entitled "How to commit Vote-by-Mail Fraud". It seems you wanna poo-poo the idea of mailing voting fraud by making it seem more difficult than it is. For example, in panel '1', it is not necessary to figure out every registered voter who requested a mail-in ballot. On election day, many voters were turned away at the polls having been told they already voted by mail-in ballot. Then in panel '2', "intercept the ballot" makes it clear you have no idea how ballot harvesting is actually conducted. Finally, in panel '3', you think the fraudsters had to acurately forge signatures, when in fact, no signature comparisons were done in most precincts and poll workers were even told to accept ballots with no signature. I wish you people would just admit you stole the election by fraud. We know the truth, you know the truth, and your guy is safely ensconsced in his ill-gotten Oval Office. So, why keep up the charade? Just admit the truth...that the election was rigged.

The global mainstream media (MSM) are now propaganda channels for authoritarian governments and the oligarchs. Their propaganda is designed to keep people in fear, to communicate the government’s regulations and to create division in the population (focus on racial conflicts, left-right etc.).
The “medical experts” that get airtime are scripted puppets, paid to enforce the ludicrous narrative that there’s a pandemic and regulations are necessary.
Criticizing experts don’t get airtime.
Google’s search results steer the masses to the mainstream narrative. Finding truthful information via Google has become increasingly difficult over the past years, climaxing during COVID-19.

Fact checkers are paid disinformation agents and a significant force in information suppression, hiding behind an unwarranted air of legitimacy.
The fact check warnings (on posts, videos…) are unfortunately very effective in scaring away novel, curious souls that aren’t aware of disinformation operations.
Paid disinformation agents
There are organizations paid solely to influence and redirect opinions in the direction of the paying client. Fact checkers are one of many that fall under this category.
They’ll flood a comment section in favor of the official narrative, drowning out critical voices, while onlookers get the impression the vast majority is on board with the official narrative from seemingly many unrelated commenters.
They’ll group attack critical voices with ridicule, manipulation tactics and even corrupted scientific expertise.
This should not discourage you to throw truth bombs in comment sections of MSM and public groups. Just realize when seemingly everybody is against you, it might just be you’re targeted by disinformation agents, which is a good sign.
Think about the silent, curious ones. They’re looking for information. Make sure they find it in the tracks of your battles.
The year 2020 was brutal for the friends of the South. Monuments and statues of Southerners, not just Confederates, disappeared from the urban areas of the Southand beyond. The lockdowns imposed by the authorities weighed heavily upon the region’s and the country’s remaining small farms and small businesses. In larger urban areas such as Atlanta, what the lockdown did not destroy, riots and civil unrest swept away. Meanwhile, our “friends” in Conservative Inc. movement were more than happy to support the jettisoning of better men and women than they from the national memory. Pray tell, if Robert E. Lee was a notorious traitor for not defending his native state, what then of George Washington, a man who swore a solemn and religious oath to his sovereign King George III? In our post rational age, such questions may well be counted as sedition by the emotions police. President Trump, who enjoyed very wide support in the South, suffered an electoral defeat that smelled to high heaven, as over a thousand affidavits, video footage, and electronic evidence indicate. His defeat has been particularly demoralizing for some, more significant over fifty million voters view the election as “rigged,” suggesting that President Biden’s government, indeed the entire federal government, has a legitimacy problem. Not to worry, the Biden people in their great wisdom and mastery of politics have quickly about faced from calls for “healing” to denunciations of Trump supporters as “domestic terrorists.” Why use the healing balm of Gilead when you have gasoline and a match nearby? Overall, a bat guano crazy year.
On the surface the federal leviathan looks to be impregnable. Mr. Trump’s people were blocked by every state and federal court where they hoped to seek redress for what polite society calls “voting irregularities.” The test for a civil case is preponderance of the evidence, a low bar compared to criminal proceedings. One might think that cases in which there were hundreds of sworn affidavits, video evidence, expert testimony, and demonstration it might just be possible that a court might give you a hearing rather than toss your case out on flimsy technicalities. Wish to complain of this, please not on Twitter, You Tube, Facebook—the Bolshevik Borg does not wish to hear it or see it, nor will they tolerate others doing so. Meanwhile, Mr. John Brennan, former Communist and former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (Why does that no longer seem a contradiction in terms?) has declared war upon everyone who disagrees with his worldview. Be advised, in certain circles of the media and what is euphemistically referred to as the “intelligence community,” Brennan is still big medicine. Discouragement and demoralization are understandable, but as the motto of the great state of South Carolina instructs Dum Spiro Spero.
The political situation is not the only source of discouragement in America. The universities and government schools were lost to the Marxists decades ago, independent schools which were once viewed as a haven from the incompetency and indoctrination of the government schools are no longer. The National Association of Independent Schools has four pillars illustrating the association’s commitments. Academic excellence is buried with other types of excellence in the pillar dedicated to generic excellence. Emotion has its very own pillar, curious for a professional association whose member schools ought to be engage in the primary work of the intellectual formation of its students. One of the consequences of this infiltration and usurpation of the schools is the destruction of families as children have “outed” their parents for their politically incorrect affiliations. The sports and entertainment industry is now fully “woke” and on board with the new cancel culture. Financial companies are shifting investments into corporations who are adopting “progressive” agendas and priorities, Larry Fink at Blackrock, one of the largest investment firms in the world, is leading the effort in this regard. Others will follow. It is certain that individuals will soon be purged from schools and employment due to their political and religious views. Leftist media figures and politicians have been calling for the purge of Mr. Trumps’ supporters from respectable society, politics, media, and employment until some sort of “truth and reconciliation” commission can sort out the sinners from the saints and “re-educate” the unregenerate. I am sure that at least in principle President Xi and Kim Jong Il approve.
Yes, the events of 2020 have demoralized many, allow me to offer some hope. There are many actions people can take to combat the darkness of our time. These actions are peaceful, and they will be effective if we can convince some of our country men to follow our example. They are inconvenient and they will require us to change the way we live, but they will stand as a powerful refusal to the unjust and corrupt regime that has usured the country.
First, get right with God. He is in charge, he has permitted this for a greater and ultimate good, and our three great enemies, the world, the flesh, and the devil are already conquered and on a truly short leash. God loves a good fight, it is by His grace that all things are, move, and have their being.
In the political realm, support those political action committees and interest groups that best represent your views. Some political scientists believe this to be a more effective strategy than voting. Interest groups have time, resources, and access to legislators that individual voters do not, and they can mobilize their large memberships to put pressure on their representatives and senators. Vote if you are inclined. Also consider becoming involved in your local and county government. Attend meetings of the town and county councils, run for the local school board, support your county sheriff if he understands his duties under the constitution. If he does not, get together with like-minded citizens and get one elected who does take seriously his obligation to uphold and defend the Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights.
On Wall Street there is an old maxim, “Never finance your enemies.” In the spirit of that maxim cancel your cable and streaming services, find alternatives for your entertainment. Move all or at least some of your money out of the large commercial dealer banks and regional banks and place it with solid community banks or local credit unions who are investing in your local community. Become your own bank and hold some hard assets outside of the system such as precious metals. Get out of debt, especially unsecured debt. These are the chains of usury by which the deep state ensnares everyone.
The most effective work being done to preserve the heritage of the South and of America is done at the local level. If a monument is under attack, write a piece in the local paper defending the town’s heritage, at the town or county council meetings, and encourage your neighbors to do the same.
Pull your children out of the government schools and encourage others to do likewise. Home school or if you send your child to a private school scrutinize their faculty and curriculum. If the college or university your child attends or which you attended has embraced Marxism and “wokeness,” and nearly all of them have, cut them off from any donations and let them know why, and encourage other alumni to do so as well. Under no circumstances send your child to a woke college. The degree colleges are awarding costs too much and has lost significant value, this trend will continue. Look for alternatives, many trades are in desperate need of workers, and many excellent free liberal arts programs are available to people who are more interested in an education than a devalued credential. Become involved in your town and county, with its local charities, its festivals, and patronize the local businesses. If you shop online use Amazon as a catalog but buy directly from another retailer’s web site. If you shop brick and mortar, Walmart, Lowes, and the rest should be our last stop after shopping the local merchants. The same goes for restaurants.
Be aware of the enormous amounts of misinformation abounding on the internet. Some of it is manufactured by bad actors, often it is spread by misled people with good intentions. The more complex and convoluted a conspiracy theory is, the less likely it is to be true. Sharpen your analytical skills. Read good literature and history, dust off that old logic textbook and put it to good use. When friend or foe assert their worldviews or their positions on the issues of the day, ask for the evidence underlying their views. We badly need to counter the reliance so many have on emotion, as the old Catholic moralists were fond of saying, “Emotion, unbridled from reason, is the devil’s playground.”
What else? Rediscover the outdoors, hike, hunt, fish, garden. Learn a new skill. Ultimately the time call for a secession of the mind and the heart from the “system.” Let it fall, we can give a helping hand to spontaneous order to build anew. Most of all, whatever one chooses to do, do it with love, humility, and patience. Like our ancestors, we are not building for today but for our children’s future. As for the architects of the current regime built upon greed, fraud, separate legal standards, and malice—it only deserves our refusal. Refuse then to take its credit, consume its entertainment, or participate in its political Kabuki theater. Let us instead return our attentions to God and homestead and rebuild.
The First Amendment protects against the infringement of religion and in so doing, it protects religion itself from blasphemers, heretics, iconoclasts, and apostates.
Satanism is NOT a legitimate religion and does not deserve any protections under the First Amendment.
Satanism exists solely as a repudiation of another religion, Christianity. Satan is NOT a god. He's a flunky. Any worship of Satan is merely a rude gesture AGAINST the God of Christianity. The entire act of worship in Satanism IS flinging an insult at the God of Christianity. As such, it is not the practice of a religion, but rather the practice of an insult.
You may already know that NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name is derived from three components that most affect our human experience: our neurology, our language, and our programming, or the way in which we have learned to model the world around us. The development of NLP began in the 1970s in California, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as an innovative approach to psychotherapy, communication, and personal development.
NLP studies the methods, validity and scope involved in what it means to be human on many different levels and dimensions. It focuses on fostering competence and flexibility of behavior, and involves analytical and strategic thought to understand what mental processes are behind human behavior.
