Silver Bullet

January 16, 2012 in General

Republican Jon Huntsman has dropped out of the 2012 Presidential race, and is set to endorse Mitt Romney.

The New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, and San Francisco Forty-Niners were victorious in NFL divisional playoff action on January 14 and 15, 2012; and will move on to the NFC and AFC Championship games to decide who will participate in Super Bowl 46.

A sixth body has been found after the Costa Concordia cruise ship ran aground in a reef Friday off the Italian Island of Giglio and capsized.

The aforementioned news items are the hot topics as the week of January 15-16, 2012 gets underway. But, these trending topics beg the question: what is truly going on?

Certainly, the 2012 Presidential election which is still nearly 10 months away can’t be the most crucial and critical news that the television talking faces need to commit nearly constant reportage to. It is likely that the Republican nominee has already been selected, and there is the strong possibility that a false flag event will postpone the November election and keep Barry Soetoro in office.

NFL football is sensational, enjoyable, and an exhilarating distraction, but is it so important that it should override news concerning Iran, Israel, and the Middle East in toto? Not to be mitigated, the crash of the Costa Concordia is a heartbreaking event, but why is it being reported with the same tabloid-esque frenzy as that of the tawdry, terrible, Casey Anthony story?

Too soon, you will turn on your Toshiba 46″ television to view news on FOX, CNN, or MSNBC and something truly earth-shattering will be breaking – quite possibly a 9.0 earthquake along the New Madrid fault line? Or, it could be sudden, seemingly unexpected military action involving Iran, Israel, and the United States; if not one of several other likely combinations of Middle Eastern conflict that will send gasoline and home heating fuel prices skyrocketing. Likewise, it is a mere matter of time before the collapse of the Euro will be breaking news, bringing the Dollar down with it. Another “earth-shattering” not too distant future event could be that around the globe numerous people – seemingly millions – have suddenly turned up missing.

The disquieting, catastrophic, and in one case glorious events mentioned in the previous paragraph have yet to happen – despite considerable speculation – so therefore many of us believe they never will…

…Could it be that God the conductor is holding the silver bullet train at the station just a little bit longer so more of us can drive through the flooded, flotsam and jetsam-laden streets of our circa 2011-2012 lives; so as to make it to the ticket counter?

As for today, the train is waiting at the station and distracted passengers are loading nonchalantly; but for how much longer?

New America

January 8, 2012 in General

We must keep our heads up and our eyes open – not just in America but around the free world…

There is so much to distract us on the first full weekend of 2012; there is New Hampshire’s Republican Presidential primary and the wildcard round of the NFL playoffs. Sports history was made on Saturday the 7th as the Houston Texans were victorious in their first ever playoff appearance, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 31-10. The Texans will advance and play next Sunday at Baltimore, in a rematch of a regular-season game won by the Ravens. Go Texans!

Texans celebrate playoff victory

Texans celebrate playoff victory

Football will entertain us, and nearly non-stop coverage and commentary of the New Hampshire Primary will distract and pacify us. Still, news of a more critical nature has received some reportage, as Iran has begun Uranium enrichment at a new underground site. Additionally, the erstwhile Persia launched a military maneuver near its border with Afghanistan on Saturday, 1/7/2012. Concurrent with this activity, Tehran continues to threaten to shut down the Strait of Hormuz if new First World sanctions harm the nation’s oil exports.

A New America is being nailed together from the smoldering plywood of the burning house of the old America. In the old America, freedom and prosperity were givens and unfortunately taken for granted by too many of the nation’s denizens. In the old America, there were cushy union jobs and pensions upon retirement. The old America operated Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm, and if you were the “new guy” who had to work on the weekend there would be time and a half or double-time pay. In summary, the old America was a free and prosperous place where you just had to save up a couple of paychecks and you’d have enough for you own apartment. Now, in the New America many are forced to live in mom and dad’s house – the parents being blessed to hang on to the vestiges of the old America – afforded through those Monday through Friday 40 hour a week jobs with weekends and holidays off.

As the drums of war beat with an increasing clamor in the Middle East, what is left of the smoldering old American plywood will be in danger of getting spilled upon by $4.00, $5.00, or $6.00 a gallon gasoline. More will be forced to choose between beer and groceries, with gasoline being rationed for those trips to local market. If there is an election this November, the citizens of New America will be forced to chose between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, with the outcome likely manipulated in advance.

The beer commercials aired during NFL games portray a prosperous life that affords expensive cars, skinny super-model women for every heterosexual male, endless recreation, a license for stupidity and irresponsibility, and an obsession with the outcomes of sporting events that are seemingly life or death. These images are the music video to the swan song of the old America…

…There is a New America and it is here, lurking in our peripheral vision. We could turn our heads to see and study it; whereby becoming prepared for this new day – but from inactivity the muscles have atrophied in our necks and shoulders and will not allow our heads to turn without considerable pain.

Hawkish Caucus

January 4, 2012 in General

DES MOINES, Iowa–Iowa may not pick presidents. It may not even pick Republican presidential nominees. But Iowa most certainly resets the nomination contest, something its voters did again on Tuesday with the state’s closest caucus vote in history…

via Iowa’s razor-thin result indicates a fierce battle for conservatives is ahead | The Ticket – Yahoo! News.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum

As of January 4, 2012, this writer is undecided as to whom he would like to see elected President of these United States in November of the aforementioned year. Certainly, I do not support Barack Obama and would not support Hillary Clinton if Democrats were able to persuade the current occupant of the White House to step aside. Still, while I don’t yet have a place to throw my support, I find Rick Santorum’s strong showing – losing by a razor-thin 8 votes to the vaunted Mitt Romney in the Iowa Caucus on January 3rd to be impressive if not encouraging.

Will Michele Bachmann now bow out of the race? By the time you read this, news may have broken that would answer this question as her trip to South Carolina has been cancelled, as per Fox News at 8:30 am Eastern Time this morning.

As I have written before, the too early and too often reportage of the 2012 Presidential Election is serving only as a distraction, in my view. As the Muslim Brotherhood is planning to assume power in Egypt and refusing to acknowledge the existence of Israel and as Iran continues to threaten to shut down the Strait of Hormuz – it seems as though these critical news items are relegated to the back burner. As Israel is surrounded by her enemies and today in early 01/12 the threat of major war looms – war that will affect the American way of life – I have to wonder why the cable and network news giants don’t offer more coverage?

While the Presidential election of 2012 is indeed worthy of heavy coverage, I would encourage everyone to look beyond the caucuses, straw polls, and punditry. Let us not get distracted and pacified – let us not lose track of how what happens in the Middle East will directly influences what happens in your day to day existence. We’ve thus far survived an economy circling the drain – perhaps more accurately being deliberately drained – and a president who seems hell-bent on reducing our freedoms while placing us into the arms of greater peril. Indeed, we are at a seminal point not just in American history but in world history. The metaphorical match has been lit and the material tinder is dry.

Be watchful and be vigilant. Pray for discernment and that you will demonstrate loving kindness and a love of your neighbor through any hardship. Be ready for anything, be anxious for nothing and yes, pray about everything.

The Man Behind the Curtain

December 30, 2011 in General

I’ve stated before that I am not a prognosticator, and I will maintain that claim. But, this writer will make the seemingly safe prediction that the year 2012 will be more tumultuous than 2011 on all fronts…

Obama good, no Romney good!

Obama good, no Romney good! Paul!

There is so much information available through the internet and mass-media that the ability to discern the truth from deception will be exceedingly difficult in 2012; even for watchers at the wall like me. I have with steadfastness believed that the television news media is controlled and events that could directly impact the quality of our lives – especially those events taking place in the Middle East – do not get sufficient reportage. The 2012 Presidential Campaign has been in full-swing for months and all other news seemingly gets the short shrift.

The SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) may curtail greatly the information that we receive online; if the government uses it to shutdown sites that may be “unfriendly” to the Marxist administration currently at the helm of Good Ship America. As a writer and a recording artist, I stand against internet piracy as it would make my products illegally free and deny me the opportunity to be paid for my creative work. But at the same time, I don’t trust the amount of freedom that SOPA would give to Big Brother and the fact that Hollywood is so supportive of it sends up a miniature red flag of paranoia in my mind. Much of the Internet Industry, including social media giants Facebook and Twitter as well AOL, LinkedIn, Ebay, and Mozilla are set against SOPA. Indeed, it is something to be carefully watched in 2012.

So while we are being distracted by Obama vs. Romney, Romney vs. Gingrich, Paul vs. Santorum, Obama will beat any Republican, any Republican will beat Obama ad infintum and ad nauseum, events will be transpiring in the Middle East that will threaten our way of life and likewise through the government that will diminish our freedom. But, the casual news observer will be made suitably uninformed by being lulled into a stupor by nearly non-stop Election 2012 coverage or by SOPA pseudo-censorship…

…That is unless an event so colossal takes place in the world that all self-respecting albeit controlled media outlets will be forced to push aside the perpetual coverage of the buildup to the election; if the election itself isn’t postponed!

The “control” is at the very least within the bias; with FOX being for the most part conservatively so while CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR and others bowing to the liberal agenda followed by their viewers, listeners, and button-pushers alike. At the very worst, the control is brought upon the news media by the wealthy elites that drive corporate America and operate the world banking system. It is these elites that believe they will hold complete power in a full-out economic and social collapse; implementing a one world system that is financial, governmental, judicial, militaristic, religious, and commercial.

The government is not here to help and “The Man” is a select group of men and women. In 2012, we may see much more evidence of these things as those who operate behind the scenes will be more bold about stepping out into view. But pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

Electronic Dope

December 3, 2011 in General

We've been doped or duped?

We've been doped or duped?

From where this writer sits in early December, it seems as though the world is intoxicated and staggeringly teetering on a precipice. If any of us was to exhale with a generous portion of vigor, this already-fallen world would topple over the edge of the metaphorical cliff into oblivion; while the average American would be left saying “uh…what the heck happened?”

We are being kept in the dark; it’s that plain and simple. The cable news networks are in full-fledged campaign mode for the Presidential election of 2012: CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC doing all they can to re-elect Barack Obama while FOX can’t publicly decide if they prefer Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney. Herman Cain is being publicly destroyed because the powers that be cannot – for whatever reason – have a conservative black man in the White House. You can call me a conspiracy theory nut job if you like, but the “powers that be” do manipulate the political and financial events of this fallen, teetering world while a public that is oversexed, drunk, drugged, and worshiping Justin Bieber watches and says “yeah, whatever.”

The presidential campaign coverage that began way too early – as it did for the 2008 fiasco – is designed to keep the public blinded with its noggin inserted into its corporate keister. Unfortunately, the public is only too willing to allow this case of Cranial-Rectumitis to remain terminal.

It is likely that Israel will very soon be involved in a major war that will negatively impact the already rapidly-decreasing quality of American life. Fuel prices are exorbitant now and they will become higher as the free-flow of Middle Eastern oil becomes more impeded. This is not Israel’s fault as the tiny nation that is the apple of God’s eye needs to defend herself; even if it is preemptively. And as Israel prepares for a showdown with Iran, Syria, and their proxies Hamas and Hezbollah, the American and European economies continue to swoon and stagger as America now endeavors to bail out the dying Euro.

But hey, let’s just argue over who the next President is going to be! After all, that president will certainly be able to pull America back from the brink; right?

We will see Biblical prophecy fulfilled, and while these events will take place in the Middle East, they will impact Americans and Europeans mightily. Indeed, we will see that the media is not God but only a pacifying form of legally-deceptive electronic dope. Only those whose eyes are open and whose heads are clear will see the full scope of the manipulation of the economy and political structure of this nation.

This writer can’t help but think that the 2012 election is already decided…but in the end, will it truly matter? Will anyone ever truly know?
