canadian wildfire apocalypse

friday, july 28th, 2023

We deserve to know before the left sacrifices what’s left of our natural rights to the implacable climate gods.

[FULL TITLE: "What Kind Of Man-Made Apocalypse Are Those Canadian Wildfires?"]

The skies are dark and hazy across the Midwest after inducing eerie yellow billows across the North and East. Residents of Western states such as California and Montana are used to such evidence of wildfires, but not residents of Midwestern and Eastern U.S. states. So this haze blanket stretching south from Canada feels surreal, even apocalyptic.

Who cares about fires?

Even more apocalyptic is the political context. We’re two months away from the Biden administration potentially letting the United Nations seize power over the entire United States indefinitely in the event of whatever it defines as a “global shock.” One of the potential emergencies warranting this global dictatorship, the U.N. says, is a “major climatic event.”

Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.

Such as wildfire smoke affecting multiple nations? The wildfire smoke is not just seeping beneath America’s hat. NASA says it’s also reaching Europe.

As we’re barely out of the unwarranted, U.N.-fomented mass suspension of civil rights in disastrous Covid lockdowns, these kinds of threats are not in the least theoretical. One must also consider the historical pattern by which tyrants govern via states of “emergency.”

States of Emergency Are Tools of Tyrants

The worst air quality from the more than 600 conflagrations is apparently in Ottawa, the seat of Canada’s government. It seems fitting, as that’s where Justin Trudeau is. He’s been perhaps the most tyrannical prime minister in Canadian history, demanding that banks confiscate the life savings of his political opponents and expressing sympathy for the arsonists burning down churches.

Seizing people’s life savings seems to be far afield from stopping a virus, but when people’s fear is activated, they are easy to mindlessly stampede. That seems to be exactly what’s going on in media coverage of these wildfires. As they do essentially every natural disaster now, media are baselessly labeling this usually natural phenomenon in the dry West a consequence of “climate change.”

It’s a really interesting thing, scapegoating the forest gods for what are typically the consequences of far less cosmic human actions. Usually, fires that get really out of hand result from bad forest management. It may be lightning or a cigarette butt that starts a fire, but a big factor in whether it gets horribly out of control is poor forestry.

That’s a catastrophe — a manmade one. Just not manmade like the climate alarmists want you to believe. Manmade in a way that could be addressed through due process in the courts. No emergency powers needed.

Environmentalist Crazies in the Wild

One must also take into consideration the recent growth in eco-terrorism, which also can be addressed by duly instituted courts of law. It is no longer a fringe-left phenomenon.

In just the last several years, top leftist publications have defended destroying natural resources in the name of protecting them, even when people are in the way. The New Yorker went so far as to platform an advocate of “intelligent sabotage” to property and infrastructure to alarm people so they’ll adopt leftist climate policies.

“If people go about this in a careful fashion, and if they time property disruption of this sort to moments when the impact of the climate crisis are being felt, there would be a decent chance to also gain popular support for these kind of actions,” said Andreas Malm, the author of How to Blow Up a Pipeline, in 2021.

Ezra Klein took seriously Malm’s call for violence to push climate policies in a New York Times column. In it, he notably refused to reject violence as a way “to force the political system to do enough, fast enough, to avert mass suffering.”

Today, Joe Biden’s pick to run the nation’s land management agency was part of an environmental group that endorsed arson at ski resorts, violence against Tesla factories, and attacks on logging equipment. U.S. Bureau of Land Management Director Tracy Stone-Manning also threatened to nail huge spikes into trees that could kill or maim any loggers cutting them down.

So it seems entirely reasonable to call for investigations into the potential manmade causes of these unusually expansive wildfires. We deserve to know before the left sacrifices what’s left of our freedoms to the implacable climate gods.

Assigning Collective Guilt Is Unjust

While leftists want to blame — and punish — all of humankind, those responsible may be indeed far fewer and identifiable.

Every evil is not directly descended from a specific human action, of course, but some are. In cases like this, when we have record-breaking amounts of wildfires causing global repercussions, it seems not just reasonable but absolutely necessary to investigate all potential factors contributing to this evil situation.

These wildfires may be acts of God over which we have no control, but the governments responsible first for protecting their people’s lives ought to investigate to be certain. As such, simply blaming “climate change” is an extreme cop-out that no one should accept.

Government Will Never Be God

Historically, “acts of God” have been considered prompts for individual and corporate repentance. Yet, having abandoned God, many of today’s pagan “nones” fill the domains where He belongs with substitutes, chief among them government.

Since they have deified government, they cannot put government agencies or officials on their lineup of potential suspects, or even consider them as partly responsible for this worldwide tragedy. If government is fallible, that threatens their entire plan of enthroning government as the world’s ultimate savior.

The left’s refusal to admit government is just as error-prone as the rest of us omits key potential culprits from public consideration and transfers blame from individuals to the collective. Yet transferring guilt from the guilty to everyone is unjust. So is punishing everyone for natural disasters over which no human has any control.

The only justice possible in this situation is not cosmic, it is individual. That’s all any government can legitimately handle. The cosmic things are out of their hands, and failing to recognize that endangers us all.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 7:30a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made coffee, took two 50mg Tramadol and a 300mg Gabapentin for various pains, fired-up the Win-7 Pentium HP desktop to let 32 million lines of code load, had a couple smokes in the semi-cool (65°!) garage and checked the leftover errands list. I tuned into the Chris Plante Show" LIVE, 9a-12, since I had nowhere special to go, in the morning. I'm meeting Sherry at 1p, at the cavernous York Galleria.

The early morning 2:15a heavy stormfront thankfully dropped the temps from the upper-70s down to the mid-60s, and reduced the oppressive humidity level to almost tolerable, for me. We're now at *Fair Air Quality*, not "Poor Air Quality", anymore. More storms are forecast for this afternoon, further reducing the humidity levels. I'm looking forward to that further reduction, if it happens. Meanwhile, I'm using my emergency inhaler, Combivent Respimat more than I should. And BLUE SKY WITH NORMAL CLOUDS!

I read that Tony Bennett died this morning, in NYC, after a legendary career spanning many, many decades. Back in 2017, Dad & Becky went to his concert at The Strand Theater in York. Here's a pic of them, taken by another concert goer. I had a chance, but was "busy" with something else, and it wasn't my kind of music, from the mid-50s. Looking back on it now, I wish I had gone with them.

I had an early lunch, Sherry stopped by and we walked for an hour at the gigantic Galleria, then drove to Flinchbaugh's Orchard & Farm Market, just east of nearby Hallam, got a nice load of food each, stopped at Hollie's Virtue Local Art Market in Hallam., and then back to my place. As always, we had a wonderful time together, and Sherry left at 5:30p; Friday after-five-pm traffic is always bad. (After working in Midtown NYC for 11yrs, I just can't call it "rush hour".) I had dinner, did some paperwork and watched TV until 1:30a. Good movie that I haven't seen since the early 2000s: "Day After Tomorrow", for special effects. Lights out.

Sleeping-in until 8:30a on Saturday, 67°, sunny, 45% humidity, now *Fair Air Quality* -- I could breathe outside! -=- I made coffee, had a smoke in the cooler garage, and enjoyed the blue sky with lots of unusual-looking Cirrus clouds. Here's a handy chart of the types of clouds, FYI. I had several voicemails from Rite Aid for Rx pick-up, and I'll get to them later this morning, or when I feel like it. Nothing urgent.

You might want to see Tucker's latest video: "Europe Is Descending Into Poverty. Donald Trump Caught Onto This Early. The Real Threat to Human Civilization Is Not Global Warming. The Real Threat to People, Is Winter." (Only the first 10mins or so, minutes; the rest is ads). This is just a little worrisome. I truly hope you've "prepped" well, as I've advocated for the past 15 years, so you'll be ready for what's coming. We're seeing it unfold realtime, and quickly.

I had several errands to do, finished up and watched the IndyCar Race at the Iowa Speedway, but fell asleep on the LR couch just 20mins into the race. Darn, that Pulled-Pork BBQ & Potato Salad made me tired. So much for the afternoon. I brewed a pot of French Roast House Dark Coffee. After some chores to get ready for tomorrow, I found Discovery's "Gold Rush: Dave Turin's Lost Mine"; 4 seasons of episodes, most of which I hadn't seen. So my evening was set to start from season 1. I made it thru 6 episodes, and bagged it around 11:30p. Up early tomorrow for the F-1 Hungarian GP.

Up at 6:45a on Sunday, it was a sunny, 62°, breezy, fresh air, 50% humidity, *Fair Air Quality* morning. I made coffee, had a couple smokes in the open garage, fed the squirrels, and got ready for the Hungarian Grand Prix on F1 TV, at 9a. I had a quick breakfast, and put-off my usual morning shower until after the race. Rite Aid called and emailed about some Rxs being ready, and I might/might not go today. Good F1 race, and the shower afterward, was even better.

I had some minor condo chores to do, paperwork to get thru, with lunch mixed-in somewhere in between. Soon enough, it was 6p, time for garbage and recycle bins to go to the curb, and some garage clean-up. Not much on after the evening news, so I reverted to Discovery+'s "Gold Rush: Lost Mine of Dave Turin" until 11:30p, and unplugged.

Up at 7:45a on Monday, I didn't hear any garbage truck come thru the complex, but it apparently did. It was a very cloudy/sunny, rainy, 74% humidity, 72°, muggy, *Fair Air Quality*, typical Summer morning in the Mid-Atlantic PA area. I made coffee, took the 3 usual pain pills, opened the condo's shades and had some smokes in the garage, and on the back patio, before the rain started. I have my usual Monday midday trip down south to DeVono's Cleaners in Dallastown, for a drop-off/pick-up, a stop at the pharmacy, and then home. Meanwhile, t-storms moved thru the area. I left at 12:30p.

After 2 other stops, I was back by 1:30, I unloaded the Jeep, had lunch and a short snooze on the LR couch. I heard noise in the garage, and discovered two grey squirrels, whom I feed 2x daily with boiled unsalted peanuts, running in circles after each other, waiting for some eats. They're not completely tame, but are acclimated tome and my voice. The UPS delivery guy showed-up, the squirrels scampered away, and my new Oscillating Tower Fan arrived via UPS. I spent the next 20mins assembling the base and reading the user manual. Works great moving the hot, humid air around. Heh.

After a light dinner, I watched the news (yawn) and switched over to Discovery+ for some "Gold Rush" spin-offs, and bagged it at 11:30p.

Awake and up at 6a on Tuesday, I made coffee, had a couple of smokes, and after opening the garage door, turned-on the new oscillating tower fan. Works great. Another 72°, overcast, very humid, only *Fair Air Quality*, no breeze morning. It's going to get worse later this week, as the oppressive heat moves east, from the midwest and north. It was already 89° by 1p, and getting worse. I had lunch, turned on a radio talk show for some background noise, and hit the LR couch for a snooze.

And this was posted:

• HAZARD: Wind gusts up to 50-70 mph and 1"+ golfball-sized hail.

• Issued By State College (at Penn State) -- PA, US, National Weather Service.

After BBQ and Potato Salad for dinner, I watched "The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch" recent episodes until the new one came on at 9p, followed by its spin-off, "Beyond Skinwalker Ranch" at 10p. Well produced shows on History Channel. My cleaning lady, JoAnne, is in tomorrow at 8:30a, and Sherry and I are walking tomorrow. Lights out at midnight.

Awake and up at 5:30a on Wednesday, 62°, overcast, very humid and forecast to hit 91°+, today; 96°+ tomorrow, 98° on Friday. We're getting what the midwest and north plains had last week. I made coffee, had a smoke in the semi-cool garage, and tuned into the Chris Stigall Show LIVE, 6-9. I saw this posted on the local and national weather websites, for the next 3 days:

• WHAT:HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 8 PM EDT FRIDAY. Heat mainly between 100 and 105 degrees expected. Some locations could see the heat top out at 105 to 107 degrees.
• WHEN: 05:36am EDT, Wed, Jul 26, 2023
08:00pm EDT, Fri, Jul 28, 2023.

• WHERE: Franklin, Perry, Dauphin, Lebanon, Cumberland, Adams, York and Lancaster Counties.
• IMPACTS: Hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses to occur.
• ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Maximum heat index could exceed 105 degrees Friday afternoon. A heat advisory may also be needed for Saturday afternoon. Excessive Heat can be life-threatening among at-risk populations, such as children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing health conditions.

• Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK.
• Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing.
• Individuals overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9-1-1 immediately.

HEY FOLKS: IT'S SUMMER! GET READY FOR HOT FREAKING WEATHER! Fuck your idiotic "climate change" bullshit!

As the very hot/humid weather overspreads the East Coast, the weather is getting crazier by the day. Forecast to hit 96° today and 98° tomorrow, everyone will into a panic, much as they do in Winter when snow is forecast. Everyone buys "all-white stuff": milk, bread, eggs and TP. Heh. Medically, I can't participate in it much, anymore.

Sherry and I walked for just over an hour, getting a late start at 2p, came back to my place to rest and relax. She left at 5:30 to get some food shopping done, before going home, and I headed to the LR couch, after some iced tea and a smoke. Waking-up at 7, I had things to get done in the condo before dark, and tried to catch-up on the day's news. After a light dinner, I watched History's "American Pickers" until midnight. My food shopping list for tomorrow was completed and very light. I unplugged at 11:30.

It's not so much what you don't know that will get you in trouble, it's what you know that ain't so.

Up at 5:30a on Thursday, an overcast, *Heat Advisory* still in-place, windless, 74°, another *Fair Air Quality*, very humid morning at 80%. Yuk10. I grabbed the morning shower while coffee brewed. After a couple of smokes in the garage and feeding the squirrels, I tuned into the "Chris Stigall Show", took my 3 pain pills, and relaxed. I scanned more news and weather sites, and put-off breakfast for a while.

First we got the brain dead, Sack-of-Rotting-Oatmeal-In-Chief, Joe "Lunch Bucket" Biden; then the corrupt PA demonKKKrats put the Rutabaga-elect John "Lurch" Fetterman, the cabbage-headed Diane "Where Am I" Feinstein into the US Senate; and now we've got Turtle-GOPe-minority-leader Mitch "The Dem's Bitch" McConnell as US Senate Minority Leader of the feckless GOPe. All three -- and probably many more in gov't -- need to be retired and replaced with capable, younger people. GOD, please help us.

A very, very large cargo ship, packed with nearly 3,000 EV cars was still on fire, caused by dangerous, exploding lithium-ion batteries. With over 300 MB's on board, the EU is sending fire fighting equipment ships to try to put it out, before the losses become billions of EU money (whatever that is, today). At least one crew member died and others were injured after fire ripped through the Fremantle Highway, a 18,500-ton car-carrying vessel. Rescue helicopters and boats evacuated 23 crew members from the Panamanian-registered ship. I hope the frigging thing sinks. Plus, the lithium-ion crap e-bikes explode, too, burning down homes.

Meanwhile, a corrupt plea deal between Hunter Biden -- of the Biden Organized Crime Family -- and the Justice Department over tax charges is on hold after a federal judge said in a court hearing Wednesday that she was not ready to accept a revised agreement between both parties. Hunter Biden failed to pay between $1.1 million and $1.5 million in federal taxes before the legal deadlines and was poised to plead guilty to two tax charges with prosecutors agreeing to recommend a sentence of probation. Bravo to the lady judge, Judge Maryellen Noreika, for restoring the Rule of Law, at least temporarily. Get a taste tester, have someone else start your car, and watch your back, Judge!

YES, charge, try, convict and sentence Hunter Biden on federal charges related to his failure to register as a foreign agent, before he cut lucrative deals with Ukraine, China and other countries where his politically powerful father held sway. Jail the criminal, as was done with Trump's associates! I despise, loathe and hate the Biden scumbag!

Yes, the US Gov't has been covering-up its crimes for many decades, going back to the 40s and 50s.

And lastly, shitty mentally-ill asshole bitch, Sinead O'Connor, is dead at 56. The skank converted to islam(SPIT!) a couple of years ago, to learn to hate America even more, as well as her native Ireland. Too bad she didn't OD on Fentanyl years ago. She didn't even write her whiny, bitchy, scum-sucking songs. GOOD RIDDANCE AND ROT IN HELL!

After re-checking my food shopping list, I left for Weis Market, Rite Aid Pharmacy and the Post Office, at 12:15p. It was already 89° and the humidity went beyond oppressive. The errand lasted 45mins, the temp was 96° and climbing. Then, I saw this posted to the weather sites:

• WHAT: Severe Thunderstorms Very Likely.
• WHEN: From 03:19pm EDT, Jul 27 2023
11:00pm EDT, Jul 27 2023.

• IMPACTS: Lightening, hail 50-70 MPH Winds.

I checked the weather maps on AccuWeather and WGAL-TV local websites, and saw them possibly forming 100+ miles to our west. I got ready to garage the Jeep. I laid down on the LR couch, after a large lunch. About 90 mins later, uber-heavy rain and thunder woke me, so I checked the weather maps to see if any hail was indicated; there wasn't, despite the black sky. But...

WATCH OUT US POWER GRID! "PJM Interconnection LLC has declared a level one emergency for the 13-state eastern US grid and called on all power plants to operate at full capacity Thursday during a heat wave. The largest US grid issued an Energy Emergency Alert level one, meaning it is concerned about being able to maintain adequate power reserves on July 27 as consumers and businesses turn up their air conditioners amid scorching heat. PJM has ordered all power plants to be online and for consumers enrolled in demand-response programs to be ready to curtail their electricity usage to keep power supply stable, according to a notice late Wednesday. Across the US, about 170 million people are under heat advisories or excessive heat warnings, said Bob Oravec, a senior branch forecaster at the US Weather Prediction Center. PJM, which serves more than 65 million people from Washington, DC to Illinois, warned of potential tight conditions earlier in the week and asked generators to prepare. Power suppliers that fail to show up when asked to by the grid may face stiff penalties." Largest US Grid Declares Emergency Alert For July 27.

The Air Quality rating just went to *POOR*, and I abandoned the badly-stiffling garage, even with the oscillating tower fan; I moved to the back patio, just off my office-sunroom, for smokes. I watched a variety of TV channels and shows, cut smoking back due to the oppressive heat/humidity, and hit the sack at 11:30p.

Have you seen the hands-down, "Best Campaign Ad Ever"? Right here! [H/T Pastor Tom]

Tomorrow starts a new week, here in the "Journal", and I have a Thursday Drs app't with my Primary Care Physician of 25yrs, at Apple Hill. Otherwise, I'm clear all week, and depending upon the weather, might get out for a few errands and walks with Sherry.

Bring In The Candles: Living In An America That Is Collapsing All Around Us.

I don’t believe America is mentioned in Bible prophecy—certainly not directly.

A lot of people think America is mentioned indirectly. For example, they will look at passages like Isaiah 18, pointing to the unnamed nation in the chapter. They may suggest that America is the ten lost tribes of Israel, the young lines of Tarshish in Ezekiel 38, or Babylon from Revelation 17-18.

However, I don’t think any of those places are America in prophecy. It is Scripture’s silence about America which I find significant. If, in the future, we stay the great superpower we are today, then I think the Bible certainly would mention us. For example, the Bible mentions nations like Rosh (Russia), Persia (Iran), and the kings of the East (which likely include India and China).

Something has to happen to America to reduce us from our superpower status, and I think that event is going to be the rapture of the church. All of the salt and light will be extracted out in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and when that takes place, America will be reduced to being a second or third-rate nation overnight. 

When we think about God’s judgment on America in the future, we need to consider how we live today in a culture that is collapsing all around us.

In one of his books, Erwin Lutzer writes that there are three things we can do in America: we can be complicit, we can be complacent, or we can be courageous. To be complicit means giving up and giving into the culture, becoming part of it. Being courageous means giving everything to the Lord, serving Him, and standing for Him in these times in which we live.

Lutzer further wrote, “The day of the casual Christian is over? No longer is it possible to drift along, hoping that no tough choices will have to be made. At this point in American history, any moral and spiritual progress will have to be one at a great cost. The darker the night, the more important every candle becomes.”

We don’t want to be people that just curse the darkness around us. We want to shine as lights. Jesus said that we “are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14-16), and we certainly want to do that in our culture.

There’s a quote I read years ago which says, “The world at its worst needs the church at its best.” Our world today is at its worst, and the church today needs to be at our best. We need to be seizing the opportunities that God has given to us and living lives that are pleasing in God’s sight.

Four Keys To National Blessing

There are four things I see in the Bible for God to bless America or any other nation. We need to think about these and apply these to our own lives and in our churches in these times.

1) Support The Nation Of Israel

All the way back in Genesis 12:3, God gave the only foreign policy statement in all of the Bible when he said to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee.”

Very emphatically, God is saying that support for the Jewish people brings blessing, and cursing the Jewish people brings cursing. We’ve seen this play out throughout history, and it continues to be God’s foreign policy today.

One of the things we need to do in America is support the nation of Israel. The problem is support for Israel in our nation today is eroding. More Democrats in America today favor the Palestinians over Israel for the first time in any American political party. Additionally, most young Americans (56%) between 18 to 29 view Israel unfavorably.

In another stunning statistic, the majority of Americans aren’t sure whether President Biden favors the Palestinians or Israel. Now I have an inkling of which he favors, but it’s not good for our country to be unsure. We ought to know that our president favors the nation of Israel.

It doesn’t mean that we agree with everything the Jewish government does, but we want to be supporters of Israel, and when we do, God will bless our nation.

In spite of all the problems we’ve had in America through the years, one of the reasons God has had His hand of blessing upon us is because our nation has been the chief supporter of Israel.

2) Pray for our country

In 1 Timothy 2:2, we are told to pray for those in authority over us, which are our national leaders. That’s one of the ways that God blesses us.

One of the things people often talk about is praying 2 Chronicles 7:14, which states, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” But notice it goes on to say, “Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.”

This passage in 2 Chronicles 7 is when Solomon is dedicating the temple. God is telling Solomon that someday when the people disobey, and He brings discipline on them (Deuteronomy 28), if they pray to Him from this place, the temple, then He will come and heal their land. We need to remember that passage is a specific promise to the nation of Israel, their land, and their temple.

While we can make an application of that today, it’s not a promise to America. Certainly, it’s always good to humble ourselves, to pray, and to seek God. We can apply it to ourselves, but we need to understand that’s not a direct promise to America today. 

3) Promote missions and the Gospel

Romans 10:15 says, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” Now we don’t often think of our feet being the most beautiful part of us, but feet that spread the good news are beautiful to God. He blesses a nation and a people who spread the good news.

America has been the greatest missionary nation of all time. We need to continue to spread the Gospel, and God will continue to bless us.

4) Practice godliness in our lives

Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” One of the ways to have blessing upon our country is to be a righteous nation

We know about all the sin and moral pollution in our culture, and we may not be able to do anything about that, but we can control our own lives. Many today are decrying all the sin in our culture while living lives themselves that are sub-Christian, not behaving in the righteous standards that God has for us.

Remember, in the book of Isaiah 5-6, he says “woe” to the people six times for their sins, but finally, in chapter six, he says, “Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips…

We need to live godly lives and not contribute to the corruption in our culture.

1 John 3 says, “Every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” If we believe that Jesus can come back at any moment, that should be a purifying hope in our lives.

Bring In The Candles

Back on May 19th, 1780, there was a remarkable day in the northeast of America. There was a great darkness that came over the land. It was very ominous, and people thought it was the end of the world.

In Hartford, Connecticut, the legislature was meeting. Many concluded that this was the end, so the House of Representatives adjourned, stopping the meeting, thinking it was all over. 

However, in the Senate, when someone brought up a motion to adjourn, Colonel Abraham Davenport, who was the leader of the Senate at that time, said this: “I am against adjournment. The day of judgment is either approaching, or it is not. If it is not, there is no cause for an adjournment; if it is, I choose to be found doing my duty. I wish therefore that candles may be brought.”

I love that story because there is a descending darkness in our country today. But as the darkness descends, let’s not just curse the darkness; let’s bring in the candles and keep working so we can be found faithful when Jesus comes.

Let’s be found doing our duty and living in the light. Keep looking, loving, and laboring as we await the coming of Jesus Christ.

Good-bye, Europe (We are not far behind).

This is not just a French story, though the catastrophe is probably most advanced in France because of large numbers and the Muslims’ (correct) perception of unique French weakness and cowardice. The rest of western Europe isn’t far behind France. Nor are we.

Cal Thomas writes at Front Page Magazine: "Imagine the U.S. canceling the Fourth of July holiday due to high crime in our cities and you get a sense of what has occurred in France. Cities across France canceled Bastille Day observances July 14 because of rioting that ignited when a police officer shot and killed 17-year-old Nahel Merzouk, a French citizen of Algerian and Moroccan descent, during a traffic stop in Paris on June 27."

News reports said churches were burned to the ground and graffiti was scrawled in red paint on a church in Marseilles declaring: “Mohammed was the last prophet”. Bank branches were ransacked and ATMs opened with chainsaws. Some shouted “death to the police,” “death to France,” “death to the Jews,” and “Hitler was right.” A Holocaust memorial was defaced. Thousands have been arrested.

Kosher food restaurants and shops have been looted and burned during the rampage.

Ayat Oraby, a former Egyptian TV and Muslim Brotherhood affiliate, has contributed her dose of venom to the French riots: “To where is France heading? To hell, God willing!”

Is France now paying a heavy price for admitting so many radical Islamists into the country? As Sorbonne University Professor Bernard Rougier has written: “Since the 1970s, France has welcomed an ever-increasing number of immigrants from the Muslim world. … Only a tiny minority have assimilated into French society. The others live as they lived in their countries of origin.”

Guy Milliere, on his webpage for the Gatestone Institute International Policy Council, recently posted these various quotes on the subject: “Radical imams came from the Muslim world and allege that France is guilty of having colonized their countries, that Muslims should continue to live according to the law of Islam and that, in the imams’ view, France should pay for its crimes. Many politicians have told the newcomers that France is racist and had exploited them.”

Milliere also posted this one: “Criminal gangs formed and began ruling these neighborhoods … French political leaders closed their eyes. Meanwhile, these Muslim neighborhoods have grown and crime from them increased.”

Europe and the West have a death wish. The Left, seeking power and the corporate leaders seeking cheap labor, are well along in their project of destroying us. All aided by touchy feely liberals laden with guilt and blind to the obvious. The voter support for this madness has overwhelmingly comes from women, who are vastly overrepresented in all three groups.

The destruction of western civilization through deliberately promoted mass immigration of unassimilable, low IQ, violent, backward masses is the left/corporate leader/liberal/women’s greatest crime, among many, against their own culture and people. Possibly the greatest internal crime in the history of all civilizations. High treason driven by the lust for power, wealth and, in the case of the liberals and women, blind pursuit of a misplaced feeling of personal virtue.

Mother Russia looks on in horror. Western civilization’s last redoubt of tradition and the urge to civilizational preservation. After 73 years of alien Bolshevism, whoever would have thought it could have achieved this position?

Satan’s NWO Blueprint and Christian Capitulation Under the Serpent’s Consensus Process.

Eph. 2:1-10 tells us why tolerance, accommodation, and reasonable intelligent conversation have absolutely no effect upon the Satanic Progressive Left and Luciferian Democrats. It is this: our actions and words cannot change the will turned toward wickedness of spiritually dead sons and daughters of Adam who follow the serpents worldview’s of the nations and of fallen powers, principalities, and demons. And because they are energized by Satan, they are ‘sleepless,’ meaning filled with relentless predatory compulsions.

Though they boast they are autonomous they are under the influence and control of Satan and his minions, the unseen organizers of a godless World Order.

Satan’s NWO Blueprint

In 1947 Julian Huxley, the head of UNESCO, wrote a book entitled, “UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy.” His book was a blueprint for an evolutionary mystical pantheist godless World Order. It called for a single ‘new’ spirituality: a mixture of ancient wisdom traditions, occult science, mystical Eastern pantheism, evolution, reincarnation and karma together with international Gnostic Luciferian Masonry and Theosophy and other occult traditions. There would also be one language, and one way of thinking.

Huxley believed a global godless order could be brought about through the universal implementation of Hegel’s Dialectic process:

“The task before UNESCO…is to help the emergence of a single world culture with its own philosophy and background of ideas and with its own broad purpose.”

Huxley spoke of two antithetical worldviews or views of reality. The first is the two interfacing dimensions of matter, energy, and spirit, the worldview of the Word of God. In this view, Reality is the eternally existing Triune God Who spoke creation into existence by the power of His Word and upholds it providentially. Man in this view is God’s spiritual image bearer.

The second view is the ancient one-dimensional, mystical pantheist view reaching back to Babylon. This view holds that behind the physical world is a hidden reality: a divine energy field from which emanate creative evolutionary energies. In this view, the physical world is Maya, an illusion. Man, in this view, is not the image bearer of the Triune God but rather a product of evolution and reincarnation whose divine spark is constrained within evil physical matter.

These two antithetical worldviews, said Huxley, confront each other from the West and the East and must be reconciled:

“Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe…this can happen…through the inexorable dialectic of evolution.” (crossroad.to/)

The concept of dialectics has been around for a long time. In the American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828, Noah Webster defined dialectics as: “That branch of logic which teaches the rules and modes of reasoning.”

Simply stated, dialectics refers to ‘position’ versus ‘opposition’ or ‘thesis’ versus ‘antithesis,’ or ‘truth’ versus ‘falsehood.’ By the traditional rules of conduct, if thesis is correct then it follows logically that antithesis is incorrect. But Georg Hegel, a pantheist and master magician in the occult Hermetic tradition, discarded the rules and turned the concept upside-down by equalizing thesis and antithesis resulting in New Truth. New Truth – a merging of truth and falsehood and/or evolutionary pantheism and supernatural Christian theism for example – is now found in something called ‘synthesis,’ or ‘consensus,’ the favored vernacular of Luciferian Democrats and Satanic Progressive Leftists (‘new’ Gnostic pagan elites).

Hegelian Dialectic is a perfect example of what J. Budziszewski, the author of “What We Can’t Not Know” terms the “black magic spells of imposture and unraveling.” Hegel’s form of dialectics is an impostor. Its’ devilish purpose is to deceptively unravel the Word of God and then reweave His Word into ‘new truth’ which is yet another impostor. The goal is an evolutionary humanist (pagan) version of Christianity.

The Devil’s Key Strategy

The foundation and key strategy of the consensus process is the knowledge that all people have an inherent fear of being alienated from the group. During sensitivity and diversity-training sessions, for example, skillful change-agents (facilitators) psychologically manipulate this fear to herd selected victims toward a preplanned conclusion that induces them to compromise both conscience and position. This is the consensus process in a nut shell, and when we hear Luciferian Democrats, Progressives, Liberals and Leftists calling for ‘consensus,’ they’re really demanding that they be allowed to ‘facilitate’ the compromise of conscience which leads to the abandonment of the Word of God, Christian-based Western ideals, principles and traditions.

There are three steps to the consensus process: “Unfreezing the present level, moving to the new level, and freezing group life on the new level.” In order to speed up the unfreezing phase, communists resorted to physical torture, shock ‘therapy,’ mind-altering drugs and other brutal techniques. In America, emotional pain, intimidation, demonizing, and fear are precipitated by cruel ridicule, shaming, threats of shunning and vicious psychological bullying in myriad forms: cruel character assassination, destructive criticism, accusations of stupidity and insanity; labeling (i.e., racist, homophobe, bigot, anti-science idiot), spreading lies, and emotional blackmail. Until total control is achieved, psychological bullying will remain the preferred method.

There are four key elements necessary for a successful ‘consensus process’ operation. They are:

1. Multicultural and/or diverse empowered and privileged groups: LGBTQ+, transgenders, people of color, illegals, and Muslims for instance. Academia, godless politicians, and the American Pravda (mainstream media) keep these groups fired up with hatred, resentment and envy — necessary for causing social conflict, fear, and submission.

2. A traditional religious, social or cultural issue around which conflict can be created. For example, so-called ‘white privilege,’ Genesis creation account, Christmas, traditional marriage, and male-female sex norms. These are demonized as social constructs, anti-science, ‘unfair, insane, exclusionary, insensitive, intolerant, racist, homophobic, and hurtful’ to diverse groups.

3. The illusory dialoguing to consensus process.

4. The predetermined outcome. For example: the Genesis account rejected in favor of evolutionary conceptions, Christmas parades successfully recast as “Festival of Lights” or “Winter Holiday;” sodomy, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, incest, Drag Queen story hour for children, transgender, and males in females bathrooms and locker rooms recast as normal, virtuous, and worthy of being taught to our children, leaving the two created sexes male and female lost in an unfolding menu of evolving genders, and traditional marriage compromised by LGBTQ+ alternative unions.

The serpents consensus process has been so successful at unraveling, diminishing, and reweaving the West’s traditional Christian based culture that here in America for example, anti-creation evolutionary conceptions now dominate our culture at every level of society and are increasingly embraced by compromising theologians. Prayers have been banned from government on all levels as well as from schools and increasingly from public areas. Faithful Christians have been sued into poverty, lost their jobs, been jailed, and their children harassed and even suspended for daring to express their Christian beliefs in any way

The devil’s serpent-powered human tools concur:

“We have battled in America since the century’s turn to bring to nothing…all Christian influences and we are succeeding. You must work until officials of city, county, and state will not think twice before they pounce upon religious groups as public enemies. (there must) be a…foaming hatred of religion…a belief that Christian practice is vicious, bad, insanity causing, publicly hated and intolerable.” (Red Communist Textbook on Psychopolitics, Laventi Beria, Stalin’s right-hand man)

To come under the sleepless, violent predation of Satan’s human tools can be likened to coming under the burning lidless gaze of Sauron. Sauron drives his enflamed predatory tools ever onward, setting traps, digging pits, laying down snares for prey. Thus we must always be vigilant while we keep in mind that the devil and his tools of evil have already been defeated by our Lord Jesus Christ through His work on the cross. Their eternal end is known.

In the meantime the faithful are reminded not to be:

“…surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.” 1 Peter: 12-14
