How Shall We Proceed, Nibiru?

nibiruThe shocking death of Prince on April 21st formed a focal point whereby our discussion about chemtrails- and other stuff- swirled about.

Although I have been working on about four separate articles, it has been three months since I last posted here (this one has been backdated).  If you are awake- and having searched out information leading you to this blog post, I would speculate that you are- then I should not need to explain the exponential acceleration of disturbing events occurring since my last post or the bombardment of ominous news stories- each one more astonishing than the previous.  As the entire world blindly hurtles toward some inevitable calamity, there is a heavy sense of foreboding in the air.  It becomes difficult to pull the trigger and write about any one thing when one is constantly besieged on all sides.  For a blogger who is married with a tween daughter and works two jobs in the real world, days can quickly turn into weeks and weeks into months.  Ask me how the title for this blog post came to be or how it relates to the subject matter and I will tell you, I don’t know.  For me it has been a process of overcoming disillusion and fear.  Maybe it’s the effect of Planet X approaching or maybe it’s the chemtrails creating brain fog.  The point is, I used to ha-ha this stuff.  If I could ask Prince, I would.  I’m sure he’d have something thoughtful to say.  As it turns out, he was saying a lot- maybe too much.

As was the case just prior to the death of David Bowie, which I wrote about here, Prince had been on my mind.  I had recently heard on one of the podcasts I listen to that Prince had brought up the subject of chemtrails on the Tavis Smiley Show.  I knew that Prince was outspoken against the Illuminati and the entertainment industry in particular, so I reminded myself to look up the video on YouTube.  Sure enough, although it was from several years ago, I found it.  In an interview from 2009, Prince referenced comments by civil rights activist Dick Gregory at a State of the Black Union event in which he (Gregory) called into question whether the spraying of manganese was causing outbreaks of violent behavior in his community.  In the interview, Prince encourages everyone (especially white folks) to watch the State of the Black Union video and recalls his own experiences with chemtrails.  Several days after I watched the video, Prince was discovered dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park compound outside Minneapolis.  My wife and I marveled at the fact that we had just been talking about him and his comments about chemtrails.  Keep in mind that as the news of Prince’s death was breaking, I had already been casually keeping track of the chemtrailing here in Western Montana.

I’m a skeptic; I’ve avoided writing about chemtrails for years because, well, it sounds nuts.  It first came into focus for me Memorial Day 2014.  It was a mild, sunny day with clear, blue skies.  I was supervising my daughter as she played at the park.  As I looked up, I noticed two airplanes making repeat passes, leaving curiously long, slow-evaporating trails behind them.  I had heard about the so-called “chemtrails” at this point, but was still quite undecided on what I believed about them and the “conspiracy theories” that were out there.  I took video footage of the planes, as they flew back and forth, creating parallel rows of white clouds above me.  Ordinarily I would assume the trails were simply condensation trails or contrails, which are a completely normal phenomenon.  But over a period of several minutes, these trails slowly dispersed creating a thin white haze that lingered in the sky for well over an hour.  It seemed to me that sunny days were of particular interest to these pilots; whenever the skies were blue, out came the planes to create cloud cover.  Could this be part of a globalist scheme to cool the planet from the perceived threat of global warming?  As it turns out, this is not a wild conspiracy theory at all, in fact, the idea of spraying our skies to block solar radiation (SRM or Solar Radiation Management) has been discussed in scientific, military and government circles for decades.  Surely it has already been tested and is likely now being employed on an ever-increasing scale, as evidenced by increased public awareness- all you have to do is look up.  As Prince pointed out in his interview with Tavis Smiley, we have never seen our skies blanketed in jet trails like this before.

I have reviewed the evidence and considered the arguments against chemtrails by scientists and government agencies, who maintain that the so-called “chemtrails” are nothing more than ordinary condensation trails.  They claim that under the right atmospheric conditions (temperature, humidity and wind shear), jet contrails can linger in the sky for hours and also dissipate to form sheets of cloud cover.  Has the atmospheric temperature dropped significantly over the past twenty years?  Has there simultaneously been a dramatic increase in humidity?  Has commercial air traffic increased to such a degree?  Has the technology of jet turbines fundamentally changed?  The answer is no, no, no and no.  In my opinion, what has changed is the rapid deployment of various covert spraying programs, of which SRM is just one.  A vital step in the scientific method is observation.  If people have been observing jet trails for years and they have always appeared the same, why the cause for alarm?

Keep in mind, this is Western Montana, not Los Angeles or New York.  We are not situated near any major international airports, and commercial flights through the airspace above us is very infrequent.  I wondered, how is it that I am seeing multiple planes (sometimes up to four or five) flying over me within a period of thirty minutes?  If I were to do a more in depth investigation, I would look up flights, destinations, departure and arrival times and compare them with what I was observing in the sky above me, but I was fairly certain they wouldn’t match up.  Were they military flights?  After trying out the Siri feature on my wife’s iPod which allows you to ask, “Hey Siri, what flights are above me now?” It became obvious that Siri was just cross-referencing a flight schedule with any reported delays and not tracking the physical location of the planes or even a specific flight path.

So the technology exists.  The motive exists.  It was only recently that I learned of already disclosed “cloud seeding” operations which have been utilized for agriculture on a local scale for years.  Then there is Operation Popeye during the Vietnam War, in which the U.S. military seeded clouds with lead iodide and silver iodide in an effort to extend the monsoon season and hinder traffic along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.  Looking further into the chemtrail phenomenon, I discovered some amazing facts.  One of which are the hundreds of patents taken out for weather manipulation technology and aerosol dispersion systems for aircraft.  The overwhelming amount of evidence for the existence of such technologies and their use easily defeats blanket “conspiracy theory” dismissals that argue these augmented jet trails are nothing more than water vapor condensation.

Instead of blotting out the sun in order to combat global warming, perhaps the real motive is reducing our exposure to sunlight (specifically UVB) which the body manufactures into vitamin D3, which is essential for the body’s overall health.  Other, more sinister programs may now be in use to poison the environment for the purpose of shutting down family operated and organic farms, allowing for the takeover of corporate, pesticide and chemical-dependent GMO food production.  Biological and chemical agents can be sprayed on a population for the purpose of weakening the immune system or causing neurological damage, mental illness, infertility and other afflictions. Perhaps, as Dick Gregory and Prince suggested, certain agents can be sprayed on a population in order to affect our behavior or reduce our numbers.  Or, are such outlandish claims just a means to divert blame for the social ills of the inner city?  Other theories abound, some plausible, some paranoid- including the idea that the trails are being used to cover up views of Nibiru as it approaches planet Earth.  As ridiculous as it sounds, nothing would shock me anymore.

Did Prince die from the “chemtrail flu” or was he killed because he was outspoken about the phenomenon? Apparently neither.  Although Prince had been battling the flu, the toxicology report, released on June 2nd clearly indicated the artist died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, which is a powerful opioid painkiller “50 times more potent than heroin.”  What was not immediately known is how the drug was obtained.  Those close to Prince acknowledged his long battle with hip pain resulting from years of wild stage performances.  It appears that the artist may have developed an addiction to the drug and was seeking help.  An addiction specialist in California was contacted by Prince’s representatives on April 20th.  Dr. Max Kornfeld of Recovery Without Walls dispatched his son, Andrew Kornfeld to meet with Prince on April 21st to discuss his options; he was present when Prince’s body was discovered by staff.

I suppose we could theorize that someone who wanted Prince dead administered the fatal dose of fentanyl, but there’s no indication that anyone had entered or left the Paisley Park compound the night before- he was alone.  What is perhaps the strangest detail surrounding Prince’s death is the fact that he was discovered in an elevator, which, as many people have pointed out is ironic considering the lyrics to his song, “Let’s Go Crazy”:

… ‘Cause in this life
Things are much harder in the afterworld
In this life
You’re on your own

And if the elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy
Punch a higher floor! …

… Are we gonna let the elevator
Bring us down?
Oh no let’s go! …

The elevator symbolizes the directions in which a soul might travel in the afterworld- “up” being towards Heaven and “down” towards Hell.  The idea of an afterworld consisting of different strata or levels is very much a pagan concept which crept into Judaism and Christianity.  It is reflected in the Catholic Church’s teaching on purgatory, which is a place or state that one enters after death in order to achieve purification prior to entering into the full glory of heaven.  It is of little significance that Prince was not Catholic, as the bulk of these beliefs have been a part of popular lore for centuries.  In fact, much of what we tend to believe about the afterworld comes from Dante’s famous work of poetry, The Divine Comedy and is- for the most part- not Biblical.  The metaphor of the elevator is merely a modernized version of this idea, where different floors represent different levels of the afterworld.  What’s interesting here is the notion that to prevent the elevator from bringing you down, you can “go crazy” and frantically press the “up” button- which seems a little futile once you’re dead.  Perhaps you’ve wondered, as I have, which way was Prince heading?  The basement, the roof or… ladies wear?

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of the their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good.

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

[2 Timothy 3: 1-7]

It is worth noting that in my youth I was a huge fan of Prince, in fact, my very first concert was Prince and the Revolution at the Cow Palace in San Francisco during his Purple Rain tour- the height of his success and popularity.  It was 1985 and I was nine years old.  My best friend and I (accompanied by our mothers) sat towards the back and needed binoculars to see the action on stage.  From time to time our moms would snatch the binoculars from us when Prince was squirming around on stage barely clothed or crawling out of a mock bathtub.  We came home with glossy, full-color programs and Purple Rain t-shirts featuring the now iconic image of Prince posing on his customized purple motorcycle.  This of course provoked the envy of our classmates when we wore them to school the following Monday.

When you’re ten years old, you don’t really analyze song lyrics, although we were aware that much of it was taboo.  This was puzzling I guess to our young, impressionable minds, because Prince always seemed to possess a form of godliness.  Prince’s ongoing relationship with the Almighty culminated years later when he became a Jehovah’s Witness in 2001 and renounced his promiscuous lifestyle.  He opposed gay marriage, causing his relationship with the LGBT community and former bandmate Wendy Melvoin to chill.  Again, there is a theme here of recognizing God, in this case, Jehovah (YHWH) or God the Father, but denying the power thereof, which is Jesus Christ.  The Jehovah’s Witnesses deny the Holy Trinity- a triune God comprised of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; they insist that Jesus was the son of God, not God Himself.  Other beliefs held by the Jehovah’s Witnesses which eschew the significance of Jesus Christ, some believe, disqualify them from the designation “Christian,” but then again, most Christians believe and practice un-Christian things.

So, it is not for me to judge Prince.  At least two of his female protegés, including the late Denise Matthews (Vanity) and Shelia E. became born-again Christians.  Certainly Prince was an intelligent, observant and talented man.  I think ultimately he found a belief system in the JW’s that he was compatible with.  It gave him the structure he needed to grow from a pretentious and narcissistic pop idol to a studious man devoted to God.  But is that good enough?  Clearly his extravagant persona and the music he created in his early career were overflowing with lustful indulgence and sexual perversion, but even in his last musical incarnation, he appeared to be under an occult influence, with the symbolism of the “third eye” dominating his album cover art and stage performances with his backing band, 3RDEYEGIRL.  Being “spiritual” does not equate with salvation in Jesus Christ.  This void may have left our much-adored artist vulnerable in the end.

I fully expect to be criticized for this casual analysis and the argument will be that I am making a big deal out of nothing or that I’m diminishing his spirituality.  And perhaps that is so.  In the larger contexts of popular music or even Rock n’ Roll history, Prince does not stand out as particularly unique in the topics he explores in his songs or his gender-fluid costuming.  The so-called “love symbol” which Prince briefly changed his name to in the late nineties is obviously a combination of the male and female gender symbols.  Again- big deal right?  We have been buffeted by ambiguous gender imagery- especially through the entertainment and fashion industries- for decades now.   We need not single out Prince; it is my opinion that it is the vehicle of popular music that we need to take a deeper look at.

Here on Earth, Prince’s memory will live on as a talented multi-instrumentalist and an electrifying performer.  His most celebrated music defied genre classification.  His religion provided an imperfect framework for his criticism of society.  But Prince’s is a case of stepping out and getting snagged up.  I am not one to question God’s capacity for mercy and forgiveness when the heart is repentant.  And so I pray that Prince Rogers Nelson’s openness to God does not go unnoticed, when many musicians fail to acknowledge God at all, or worse, blatantly bow down to Lucifer, himself the most talented musician among the angels.

Concern ≠ Hate

target_montanaThere are a few ways to spin the current refugee crisis and then there is the truth.  If you are on the Right you may believe the refugee crisis is a masked Islamic invasion force, sent to destroy the last vestiges of Western society and Christendom and establish Sharia Law in its place.  If you are on the Left you might see the crisis as emerging from decades of war for oil in the Middle East in which America has played a significant role, resulting in waves of displaced victims who need our help.  In reality, each viewpoint contains some of the truth, but not all the truth.

The International Rescue Committee recently announced it had obtained permission from the State Department to open an office in Missoula, Montana to facilitate the resettlement of refugees.  This came at the urging of Soft Landing Missoula, a group of soft-hearted liberals headed up by Mary Poole.  Poole has said that the idea to bring refugees to Missoula arose last fall, while discussing the tragic situation in Syria with friends from the comfort of her living room.  It will be the second time Missoula has hosted a refugee resettlement office (the first time was in 1979, to help Hmong refugees from Laos after the Vietnam War, according to the Missoulian).  The plans were given a green light despite opposition from communities throughout Western Montana.  Similar efforts have been derailed in nearby Flathead and Ravalli counties, but does it even matter?  Public opinion is being overridden from on high.  City councils, churches, state governments and tribes are being brought into the fold.  Since escalations in the Syrian conflict last year, Montana has been under more pressure to open its gates, as Idaho and Washington continue to struggle with refugee populations.

If you want to know who I am and where I come from, go here:  One American (An Introduction).  You can spare me your accusations of racism and hatred.  I do not care about your politics, nor am I interested in converting you over to conservatism.  I am only interested in the preservation of America.  If you love this country like I do, then you will want to read further, because your life is about to change suddenly and dramatically.  If you genuinely despise America and would like to see it dismantled in favor of, I dunno, a totalitarian dictatorship, then stop.  Ok, were you hoping for a more egalitarian society, a utopia where borders do not exist, people respect one another and all (or no) religions are valid?  I am willing to concede that most people reading this have a genuine concern about the situation and would like to see America do the right thing.  We can start there, because the engineers behind the refugee crisis do not share your sentimentality for an America that used to be a force for good in the world.

How do we decide what the right thing to do is?  Well, a strong moral foundation goes a long way.  Facts help too.  Of course, it is hard to make good decisions regarding the future and security of our nation when we are being lied to.  And we are absolutely being lied to with regard to the Syrian refugee crisis.  While the crisis is real, it is a manufactured crisis, a fact obscured by a carefully orchestrated media deception.  The actual plan to inundate the West with third-world populations begins with the United Nations and ends with people like Mary Poole, who, despite their concern, simply do not understand the larger agenda.  They are the poop-end of a global beast system that has been set loose to devour nations- economically, culturally and politically.

We should all be busy examining the real threats facing Montana and the rest of the nation, but instead we are locked in a cage match, shouting insults back and forth at each other.  Oh yes, that’s part of the plan as well.  Meanwhile, migrants are already being brought in, housing is being built and public assistance funds are being reallocated.  This “public debate period” serves only to create the appearance that ordinary citizens have a say in the matter.

Missoula is just a few miles south of the Flathead Indian Reservation.  Home to the University of Montana, students, along with scores of California transplants have been steadily transforming this once conservative lumber town into their own Rocky Mountain version of Berkeley.  In their desire to appear legit, they have signed on to just about every progressive, George Soros, MoveOn.org, Ford Foundation funded scam to come down the pike for the last decade or so, from Occupy to Black Lives Matter.  Care to wager on whether The Satanic Temple will be erecting a beastly edifice here in the next year?

On March 12th, concerned citizens held an American Security Rally on the steps of the Missoula County courthouse in defiance of plans to resettle refugees in the area.  According to attendees, a group of protesters led by Mary Poole, at one point held up a sign with an arrow pointing toward the group that said “racists.”  How predictable.  But when a group of Native Americans, including members of the Blackfeet and Assiniboine tribes, showed up to speak out against the resettlement plans, the sign was quietly put away (locked back up in the hatch of somebody’s Subaru no doubt).  Poole’s group initially assumed the Indians were there to support their cause.  The Left is always trying to draft American Indians for their Marxist causes.  But the depressed economy of Montana, which is even more pronounced on its seven Indian reservations, will certainly be strained even further by hundreds of refugees being fast-tracked into low-wage jobs and low-income housing.  And when they are not able to hold down these jobs, they will put even more pressure on the welfare system.

This illustrates what opponents of refugee resettlement and illegal immigration are facing across the country- accusations of racism and hatred.  It does not seem to matter that Islam is a religion, not a race.  Nor does it matter if you are Black or Latino or Native American- if you do not support the agenda of the authoritarian Left- which is to transform America into a “global community” through massive migration, then you will promptly find yourself on their hit list.  In response to objections from the public, supporters of refugee resettlement held a “March Against Hate” in downtown Missoula on March 1st, again promoting the idea that expressing concern about security is equivalent to hate-speech.

These are the same kind of tactics being used by protesters against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, who has called for a halt to the stream of Muslim refugees into America until we can devise a better screening process.  He has also said he will secure our borders and infamously, “build a wall and make Mexico pay for it.”  This is not driven by racism, but a desire to protect the citizens of our country from those who seek to harm us.  It is common sense in a sea of lunacy, and the precise reason why Trump is so popular.  Trump recognizes that our southern border with Mexico is not being crossed illegally by just folks from Mexico and Central America seeking a better life, but by people from all over the globe, including hostile regions in the Middle East and Africa.  He has called attention to the crisis in Europe, who rolled out a red carpet for the Muslims only to be viciously attacked time and time again, most recently in Brussels, Belgium.

Atrocities committed by Muslims across Europe are only going to grow in frequency.  For decades, European society has been indoctrinated with multiculturalism and socialism, and Christians there long ago abandoned their faith in Jesus Christ in favor of atheism, humanism and the New Age.  It is because of this spiritual void that Europe has become the target of Islamic jihad.   And now, America is on suicide watch, as we follow the same pattern we have seen in Europe.  This has either escaped the comprehension of those like Mary Poole or, it is welcomed.  Many on the Left hold to the idea that the prosperous, industrious West is to blame for the ills of the world and must be stopped.  It is the same ideology that elected Barack Obama in 2008 and props up current Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders.  That ideology is socialism, and as a recent article from politicallyshort.com points out, there is a growing coalition between the radical Left and Islam.  Don’t think so?  Here is an excerpt from the Islamic State’s own manifesto titled Black Flags from Rome:

“A growing population of left-winged activists (people who are against; human/animal abuses, Zionism, and Austerity measures etc) look up to the Muslims as a force who are strong enough to fight against the injustices of the world. Many of these people (who are sometimes part of Anonymous and Anarchy movements) will ally with the Muslims to fight against the neo-Nazis’ and rich politicians. They will give intelligence, share weapons and do undercover work for the Muslims to pave the way for the conquest of Rome.”

This passage not only reveals how psychotic ISIS is, but how gullible they think you are.  Isn’t it interesting that the Left is always comparing those on the Right, the Tea Party, Donald Trump, etc. to the Nazis?  They forget that Hitler was a Socialist.  Hitler was also enamored with Islam and thought it to be far more compatible with Nazism than Christianity.  In a private conversation with his Minister of Armaments, Albert Speer, Hitler said, “The Mohammedan religion (Islam) too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?”  Hitler lamented that Europe was conquered by Christians instead of Muslims.  A fact that is not covered in modern high-school history books is that the Nazis were allied with the Islamists in the Balkans, North Africa and Palestine during World War II.  Though Hitler viewed the Arabs as inferior, he admired their fanatical devotion to their religion and therefore found them useful.

The trouble is, the West has been spoon-fed the idea that Islam is a religion of peace.  The media has been instructed to downplay the notion of Islamic terrorism or simply not cover acts of terror carried out by Muslims.  For example, the recent massacre in San Bernadino by two Muslim extremists was treated as “workplace violence,” and even when it became apparent that it was an act of terror, blame was placed on the killer’s co-workers, who must have been insensitive to his Muslim ideology. Since the 1990s, school curriculums across the country have been incorporating teachings on Islam.  So, where are the lawsuits from the Freedom From Religion Foundation?  Where have all the declarations of “separation of church and state” gone?  Or does that only apply when we are trying to curtail the influence of Christianity?  Where are all the feminists screaming about the abuse of women under Islam?

Ahead of this planned resettlement operation, an Arabic professor from the University of Montana is being trotted across the state to offer “Perspectives On Islam” lectures. The lectures have been held at public libraries and amazingly, Christian churches.  In his presentation, Samir Bitar explains the “Five Pillars of Islam” to bewildered Montanans and conveniently leaves out any mention of jihad or “holy fighting.”  Lessons in our public schools similarly leave out any mention of jihad.  Maybe that’s because this insidious plan to brainwash our kids wouldn’t go over too well if we were honest.  I wonder if all the innocent people blown to bits by Islamic suicide bombers were neo-Nazis and rich politicians?

Are they then secure from Allah’s scheme?  None deemeth himself secure from Allah’s scheme save folk that perish.

Qu’ran [Al-A’raf 7:99]

It is not entirely your fault that you’ve been led to believe the mythology surrounding the refugee crisis.  In concert with prominent world leaders like Angela Merkel, Barack Obama and Pope Francis, all the major corporate media outlets are engaged in an overt propaganda campaign to misrepresent immigration issues and those who oppose their agenda.  The confusion is by design.  What they were not counting on was the explosion of the alternative media, made up of journalists, bloggers and ordinary citizens- armed with cell phones, digital cameras and a moral imperative to expose the truth.  Our overlords have not been completely successful at silencing the voice of the people; they are behind the curve and scrambling desperately to beat us to the finish line.  The sole authority (save the Word of God) standing in their way is the First Amendment of the Constitution and believe me, as I write this, they are busy strategizing a work-around.

Although the refugee crisis has been in the planning stages for decades, special thanks  for its recent escalation is due the Obama Administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who plotted the Arab Spring of 2013 as a phony democratic uprising, laid waste to Libya, toppled the government of Ukraine, and continue to support radical Sunni militants (including al-Qaeda and ISIS) against President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.  Because of these policies, large swaths of territory across the Middle East and Northern Africa have become lawless war zones, allowing militant wahhabists to gain control.  Thousands of Christians and Muslim minorities in their path are being forced to flee their homes to escape butchering and enslavement.  Their target is anyone who refuses to renounce their beliefs and declare that Allah is supreme.  ISIS treats Shiite Muslims as apostates and they are killed in similar fashion.  In some areas, the infidels are given the opportunity to pay the jizya (tax), which permits them to live, but in humiliating conditions, in subjugation to Islamic authorities.

If it were displaced Christians and Kurds and Yazidis flooding into Europe, the United States and Canada there would not be an issue, but this is not what is happening.  The overwhelming makeup of “refugees” arriving at the borders are young, Muslim males culled from all over the Muslim world, many of whom are sympathetic towards ISIS or otherwise favor Islamic Law and are therefore not targets.  So who are they fleeing?  It’s not the Syrian Army and it’s not Russia.  The reality is anybody and everybody who wants a free pass into Europe and the West are using this opportunity- this lack of discretion- to enter in.  ISIS has explicitly said they will exploit the refugee crisis to gain entry into Europe and the United States, and they have.  In a poll released back in November, close to a third of Syrian refugees indicated they either supported ISIS completely or had mixed feelings about the terrorist group.  Mary Poole and her group have misrepresented their role in this resettlement process from the beginning, assuring the public that Missoula’s refugees would be a special group, hand-picked for safety.  It is clear however that the United Nations and the State Department have been running this operation from day one.  Now under the Obama Administration’s “surge” policy, the time generally required to process refugee admissions is being cut from two years to three months.  In simplistic terms, the idea is not to help more people, the idea is to get as many in before regime change or public opinion sways, whichever comes first.

Explain to me again why American citizens must give up our Fourth Amendment rights and endure humiliating pat-downs and intrusive body scans at the airport, when the primary candidates for terrorism are given a green light and our southern border remains unsecured.  There is no reasonable explanation other than the orchestrated take-down of the United States.  The FBI stated months ago they were investigating ISIS threats in all fifty states.  Resident Obama says that refugees shouldn’t be subjected to a religious test before being permitted entry to the United States.  Then why is it that Christians, who are suffering genocide across the Middle East and Africa are given such low priority?  Anyone with a shred of common sense can detect that something is very wrong here, but we cannot ask these questions without being eyed as a domestic terrorist.  It does not matter that these facts have been confirmed by our own government, when you have a population that is largely ignorant and apathetic and a Church that is asleep.

All refugees are not terrorists.  But we currently have no practical means of determining who is a terrorist and who is not.  Clearly there are refugees seeking escape from war torn areas, but many are economic refugees being lured to the E.U. and United States by our overly generous welfare system.  Despite being “rescued” from the spread of radical Islam and despite the free housing, food, jobs, cash, high-speed internet, etc. many retain a deep distrust and animosity towards the West and have no intention of assimilating into our society or adopting our culture.  Like the “global citizens” who support them, they hate America, but will gladly take the freebies anyway.  If you were living on the run from bloodthirsty warlords for weeks or months, wouldn’t you be grateful towards the nation that took you in and provided for your most basic necessities?  Instead, they have clearly demonstrated their ingratitude and complete disregard for law and order.  They still retain their hatred for Jews and Christians; they still champion the destruction of America and the subservience of women.  They have brought their medieval culture of mayhem, misogyny, pedophilia, rape and murder to our shores.  They live among you, in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and increasingly, small town America.  If they cannot have autonomous areas where Sharia is enforced, they will seek to subvert our laws at the city, county, state and national level.  Certainly there will be a sharp rise in the number of ISIS linked (or inspired) attacks in the United States as a result of this resettlement.

The socialist rags that pass for newspapers around here have been busy drawing comparisons between the current crisis and the resettlement of Hmong refugees in Montana throughout the 80s.  These are not Hmong refugees, who were grateful for the opportunity to resettle in the United States, where they gradually assimilated and became contributing members of society.  There was culture shock on both sides and snags along the way in the resettlement process, but the Hmong people desired to become part of America and honored what America stood for.  Even in “backwoods” Montana, they thrived.  Are we really supposed to believe that in 2016, xenophobia has suddenly exploded to epidemic proportions across America?  In a recent article it is recalled that in 1980, Charlie “Cha” Moua, a prominent member of the Hmong community in Missoula said of his people, “We do not want to be a burden to other Americans.  It is our highest ideal to work together for our mutual benefit.  We need lots of help- but most of all, we need your friendship and understanding.  In return we can only offer you ours, and a common will to work for the good of the United States and her citizens.”  This is the complete antithesis of what Muslims hope to accomplish by resettling here.

Immigrants (both legal and illegal) from the founding of our nation to the present have come to America seeking a better life and have been instrumental in building and shaping America for the benefit of all.  My own father was a Portuguese immigrant from Bermuda, who came here legally when he was sixteen and became a U.S. citizen in the 1980s.  These groups desired to become part of American society and reap the benefits of freedom and opportunity.  They continue to come to America and they are welcomed, because they love America and have something to contribute.

But now, at the beckoning of the United Nations, Pope Francis and other globalist authorities, Americans are being coerced into accepting immigration from groups who have no intention on assimilating American culture or contributing to it.  At best, they are coming to cash in on all the promised benefits (this makes for the “soft landing” I suppose) at the expense of hard working Americans.  Who can blame them?  We’re offering them a magic carpet ride out of countries that have already been wrecked by war and corruption.  They will fundamentally change the landscape of America to look more like the places they come from.  In the eyes of our globalist masters though, the days of American prosperity are over; in order for the world to be “fair,” America must also be impoverished.  At worst, the migrants are consciously using this opportunity to infiltrate our nation.  Since there is no practical screening process in place any longer to weed out criminals and terrorists, and border agents are being asked to look the other way, they are free to expand the scope of their criminal and terrorist operations.  We have become a land of lawlessness.  The migrant influx will strain our nation’s resources to the breaking point, forever changing our way of life.

We should ask, why are none of the wealthy Gulf states taking Muslim refugees?  Surely they would be more easily assimilated into their society versus ours.  But the plan is not to send the migrants to other Muslim lands, it is to send them to the West.  And whether you believe it is an invasion or not, it is certainly aimed at disrupting the homogeneity of Western, Judeo-Christian society.  Although I emphatically disagree with the Islamic religion, I do not hate Muslims.  I recognize that they are being used as part of a larger agenda which, in time, will mean the outlawing of all religious expression along with free speech in general and the stripping of all our God-given rights under the Constitution.

Whether or not you agree that America is a Christian nation, you cannot argue that Christianity did not play a foundational role in the structuring of our society.  And although our Constitution guarantees freedom of religion for all, Christians have abandoned their posts as representatives of Jesus Christ.  If you want to know why were are under the threat of radical Islam it is because we have yielded that territory.  As Christians we are supposed to occupy until the return of Jesus Christ.  That means we are supposed to stand upon the Word and fight, not roll over and expose our soft bellies for the slaughter.  If we should die in the cause of defending God and country, then it is a noble death.  Jesus does not expect us to foolishly buy into a Satanic globalist agenda, in fact, he warns against it [Revelation 17].  But the Church has joined forces with the world, accepting practices and beliefs that are an abomination to the Lord, priming the machine that will eventually pick our country apart.  We are witnessing the execution of a globalist operation to undermine American sovereignty and turn our great nation into an international “region” governed by the United Nations where they (not we) get to decide the composition of our population and the moral relevance of our laws.  Under globalist rule, the Constitution becomes nothing more than an arcane document.

Ever notice how everyone blames the elite for the ills of the world, yet somehow the elite never become the target of war, terrorism, protest, embargo, etc.  That’s because they are playing us all off each other.  Everyone believes their enemy supports or is being supported by the elite.  They know someone is oppressing them, but they can never break through the matrix and expose them.  They are the enemy of all the people of the world.  That is why concern does not equal hate.  They can operate in a capitalist system or a communist system, a democracy or a dictatorship.  They have equal disregard for Islam and Christianity; they merely use religion to divide and conquer us.  They fight like wolves amongst themselves for ultimate control of this New World Order, in which all human beings are disposable.  They control the religions because they formed the religions.  The answer is to stop being religious and start forming a relationship with Jesus Christ.


Can We Resurrect America?

phoenixMy last article for One American was written back in January 2014 (Dolly, Google And Original Sin). What has transpired between then and now, both personally and globally, I plan to break down and write about here over the next several weeks.  There are also several posts I had planned on writing this previous year, which were never completed.  Once finished, these will appear on my blog around the original intended time of publication.

Work, family, illness and my own spiritual transformation has kept me busy in other realms for the past year or so, which is a detrimental amount of time in the blogosphere if you’re concerned with maintaining relevance and a readership.

Back in 2013, at the beginning of my quest, my desire for e-mail security led me to hushmail.com, but for a free account one must sign in once every three weeks or it’s deleted.  Easy right?  Yeah, that’s what I said. After going through five (!) hushmail accounts, I decided to settle on Yandex instead.  My new e-mail contact is: just.one.american@yandex.com.  Please contact me here from now on.  Soon my inbox will be overflowing with belligerent comments, death threats and mysterious leads, right?

For the safety of my family I was urged to steer clear of a possible Sandy Hook story, an interview in fact, with a former associate of the alleged shooter’s father, Peter Lanza. In short, she believed the school shooting was staged to cover up a plan to murder the entire Lanza family.  Was Adam Lanza used in an assassination plot?  Did Peter Lanza know something?  She didn’t elaborate on why she came to believe this, but once commented to me that she had left New York because of the politics- this being before the bully Bloomberg took over.  She used the word “fled” so obviously something more than liberal-mania had driven her away to refuge in the mountains of Montana.  This same person also told me that she was once led to a room where she observed dozens of agents sitting around computer screens tapping into security camera systems at will- any camera system, from convenience stores to sports arenas to traffic cameras, home CCTV systems, etc.  I wanted to find out more, but after a short stint here, she was off again to another state.  Perhaps it’s better off that way.

One American went dormant in January 2014.  In April of 2014, I attempted to resume blogging with a post entitled “Life On Earth,” but again had to focus on issues closer to home.  I’ve since deleted that post and I am starting over again here, one year later, a completely changed person with a new perspective.  One American is evolving, in a sense.  So, while it may appear that my posts from here on out repel against earlier ones, have no fear, it is only because I am operating from a fuller and more complete understanding.  I have made no attempt to revise my earlier posts, although I can say I see world events in a new light now.

Since becoming awake, I am finding that there are other levels of awareness revealed to us, if we remain on the path of seeking truth.  In the span of just a few years, I have traveled from that initial gut feeling of “something is not right” to the realization that at every level our world is under a grand deception.  Is it not obvious that as individuals and as a civilization, we are all being accelerated toward a great revelation?  Lines are being drawn and we are all being called to decide where our allegiances lie.

I am not as well versed in history as say, Alex Jones.  I certainly do not have the time to pour over as much news and information.  I admit, I do not know a great deal about economics, military tactics or even geopolitics.  I am a product of my environment, a laborer.  I am an average person really, rooted in common sense, rational, curious, a seeker of truth.  I have endeavored to educate myself beyond society’s expectations of me.  This is my perspective- and I suspect there are others like me out there.  I have seen enough of the world to understand just how I have been deceived.

One American has never been just about politics.  I feel like I have attempted to illuminate an intersection of politics, culture, science, life and spirituality with my writing.  Now, well into 2015, with our Republic crumbling, it has become increasingly difficult to expect political solutions for what ails our society.  I am now emerging from this extended period of reflection asking this burning question: Will America survive what’s coming?   What is coming?  I may be able to resurrect my blog, but can we resurrect America?  Surely I’m not foolish enough to believe that if we manage to elect, say, a Rand Paul for President in 2016, we can “fix” America.  At best, we may be able to stem the tide of destruction and buy some time, time to help people understand the plot against them, perhaps leading to a revival of American liberty and a return to Constitutional values.  That will not happen though unless we understand these words:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;

– United States Declaration of Independence

The problem here is this: First and foremost, we have forgotten our Creator.  From this error we have come to substitute the government for God as responsible for bestowing our rights.  Following in this delusion, we have been persuaded to believe that in a democracy, the majority can act to abolish certain rights.  So, not only have we have consented to having our rights stripped away by our silence, but by our collective rebuke of God.

I predict that the 2016 presidential election will be the most rigged in our history.  Or, perhaps not, because, does it really matter who’s elected when the very apparatus of our representative government has been rotted out by reliance on executive action and secretive treaties like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, between global, corporate entities that supersede our sovereignty?   As we solider on, you will find me voting with my conscience and my dollars, but placing my trust in God.

More details to come…


Tagger Flouts Globalist Mantra

drink_waterDuring a recent trip to Walmart, I was delighted by what I read tagged on a Coke machine outside the entrance.  Right below the Walmart slogan, “Save Money.  Live Better.” was the line “Drink Water” in white paint pen.  Hah!  Really, do we save money when we ploink seventy-five cents into a soda machine and get a twelve ounce can of colored, carbonated, caffeinated, sugar-water that likely cost Coca-Cola twenty-five cents to manufacture and ship?  Do we live better with all the health problems associated with soda consumption, not to mention diet soda and the artificial sweetener aspartame?  The little hoodlum and his graffiti pen got me thinking.

Might we have more money and live better by not shopping at Walmart?  Lots of people loathe the place, but can’t seem to avoid it, either because it’s the only store within twenty-five miles that sells boxer shorts, bicycle chains and mini-blinds or because it’s the most affordable option.  In my case, both reasons apply.  It works like a tractor-beam and I’m not being overly dramatic, I’ve studied the physics of it.  I live in a small town.  Last week a brand new Walmart Supercenter held its grand opening here.  Perched on a hill like a stucco fortress overlooking the town, it eclipses the older, regular Walmart that opened back in the nineties.  Oh, you should have been there!  They brought out the spotlights and everything!  From a distance, you may have thought there was a film festival in town or heck, even a monster truck show.  They didn’t even have spotlights for the rodeos that took place over the summer.  Yes, it was the talk of the town:  “Have you been to the new Walmart yet?”  Yeesh.

As I shopped stealthily behind enemy lines, I realized this wasn’t just about Walmart, or soda for that matter.  I shop at Walmart.  I drink Coke.  You might be surprised to learn that I get SNAP benefits on an EBT card and I’m one of the millions of Americans who can’t afford health insurance for my family.  Didn’t you notice this is a free WordPress blog?  Instead of relying on government handouts in the form of food stamps and Obamacare, I would much prefer an occupation that offered a wage to support a family on.  I would like to buy my own health insurance, with my own money.  I don’t want to take from the haves to give to the have nots.

For my parent’s generation it was possible to find an entry-level job with training right out of high school.  All you had to do was show up and work hard; you could move up the ladder, make decent money and retire after forty years with a nice pension.  My folks both got two week paid vacations nearly every year and health insurance too.  It’s not that they worked harder; the opportunity they had as young adults has disappeared for my generation.  My generation has had to go back to college and rack up tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, in a desperate effort to earn a degree that still doesn’t guarantee a job allowing one to buy a home or put one’s kids through college.  I have a college degree, work two jobs and struggle to put food on the table and keep the power on.  That’s how much this country has changed.

The debate over whether Walmart is a boon or bust to local economies has been raging for years; it’s not exactly news.  The retail chain is notorious for treating its employees like dirt, offering mostly temporary and part-time positions, low wages, crappy benefits, forced overtime, etc.  It’s also not a mystery that a majority of products (especially electronics, toys, clothing and housewares) sold at Walmart are manufactured very cheaply in other countries like China and India where the company can capitalize on cheap labor, cheap components and minimal safety regulations.  Furthermore, because the chain is so large, they have massive buying power, allowing them to rake in more profit by buying already cheaply produced products at bulk discounts.  The Supercenters also offer groceries, which means the grocery stores, delis and bakeries in town also suffer.  Don’t go to Napa Auto Parts for seat covers, go to Walmart.  Don’t go to Safeway for Frosted Flakes, go to Walmart.  Don’t go to Les Schwab for tires, go to Walmart.  And they ad-match too, so even if a local store dares to compete by having a really good sale, forget it.  At Walmart, it’s cheaper and it’s all in one place.  Save money, save time, that’s the mantra.  Some argue that’s a brilliant business model, others say it’s predatory.  What’s the difference?  That’s free-market capitalism, right?  What is not so well known is that Walmart uses billions in taxpayer money in the form of tax breaks, infrastructure assistance, grants and other subsidies to help fund its expansion.

Is saving money the catch-all for a dependent, globalized America?  As a society, we sacrifice a lot for the sake of low prices.  But therein lies the key to Walmart’s success.  Walmart thrives in a poor economy, where people have less and less to spend because wages are so low and good-paying, full-time work is disappearing.  But, they also drive the poor economy, and so do we, by shopping there.  It’s a cycle of dependence.

It’s not that folks who shop specialty marts and boutiques are all trendy snobs, but they can afford to buy all organic, sustainably-grown, non-GMO stuff.  They can afford artisan, hand-crafted, American made products.  The rest of us get cheap, microwavable slop, and vacuum cleaners that stop working after a few runs across the carpet.  I don’t hate the people who have nice homes along the lake.  They are not our enemy.  Perhaps they started a successful business or made smart investments.  Someday, I would love to own a home by the lake and a boat.  In America, that should remain an achievable goal for all, a reminder of the opportunities that exist in our nation.  The globalists want to strip away wealth and opportunity.  They want to nullify success and the values that have made America strong: innovation, ingenuity, determination and hard work.

Walmart is a key molecule in the globalist paradigm.  But Walmart is just one prominent example of how globalism destroys culture.  The landscape of our country is changing, and not for the better.  Not so long ago, individual cities had their own character and style, defined by their signature shops, stores and restaurants.  They were operated by local people, families and small-business owners.  Now, everything is homogenized and corporatized.   You can’t go anywhere in the United States without finding an Olive Garden, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Target or PetSmart.  Often, they’re all lined up together in the same shopping center.

The myth of globalism assures us that interdependence results in a more peaceful, equitable world.  The reality of globalism, however, is subjugation to authoritarian control.  It’s not about nations working together, caring and sharing, it’s about nations surrendering their sovereignty, wealth, resources and culture.  It is the arch-nemesis of liberty and independence.

It should be no surprise then that Walmart serves as the staging ground for economic crisis experimentation. When the corporate controlled government wants to test people’s response to malfunctioning EBT cards (either when they’re rendered useless or when they’re given an unlimited balance, both of which we witnessed last month), Walmart is used to gauge the reaction.  Why?  Because Walmart is everywhere, and they’re still spreading.  If you don’t have one nearby, you will soon.  When Black Friday rolls around this year, Walmart will hire armed guards in some locations and even set up SkyWatch surveillance towers in the parking lot.  Nobody complains.  It’s there to keep everyone safe while assaulting each other over cell phones and Furbys.  When the economy collapses, will the military use Walmart stores as distribution centers for your weekly ration of food, water and clothing?  Of course they will, because they know you’ll be there.


Redskins: A Black And White Issue?

I jim_thorpeam just as annoyed as anyone by our nation’s propensity for political correctness, because it is frequently condescending and spoken by people who believe their careful words can hide their true feelings.  But there is a difference between political correctness and sincerity.  There is also a difference between placating people and bestowing honor.

This year, coinciding with the annual dispute over the celebration of Columbus Day, President Obama once again stirred up racial divisions by inserting himself into the debate over the use of the name “Redskins” by Washington’s NFL franchise team.  In an AP interview, the President said he would “think about changing” the name if he owned the team.  Many people, Native Americans especially, consider the term “redskin” a racial slur and highly offensive.  Leaders from various Native American groups have called upon Redskins owner Dan Snyder to change the team’s name, but Snyder has been defiant, saying he will “never” change the name, citing the team’s storied eighty year history.  While it’s hard to see how a football team’s eighty year history trumps thousands of years of indigenous culture, most Americans remain opposed to a name change.

The Washington Redskins are just one of countless sports teams across the nation, both professional and academic, which have appropriated Native American cultural symbols: arrowheads, war bonnets, tomahawks, feathers, etc. and paired them with “native” names like “Indians”, “braves”, “savages”, “chiefs”, “warriors”, etc.  The result is an amalgamation of cultural confusion not unlike that which occurs in the aftermath of any culture-clash.  History shows us that a variety of reactions always emerge from cultural conflicts.  There are always groups calling for a return to traditional ways, those urging an adoption of the dominant culture, and those seeking a middle-ground of mutual understanding, respect and co-existence.   In America we find all of these, including the descendants of European settlers co-opting Native traditions.  As a descendant of European settlers, it’s bothersome for me to see my people adopting the trappings of Native culture in their desire to be more “spiritual”, “tribal” or otherwise “in tune” with the Earth; hanging a dreamcatcher from your rear-view mirror doesn’t solve that problem.  In their ignorance, they believe this somehow honors Native people.  When it comes to football, many people believe the Redskins name honors Native Americans.  But it’s hard to make that argument when the very people they claim to be honoring say the name does not honor them.  And I’m pretty sure dressing up in war paint and feathers for a game, getting drunk and mocking traditional spiritual songs with chants of “hey-ya-hey-ya” doesn’t honor them either.

While I agree with Alex Jones that President Obama pounced on the mascot debate as a way to exaggerate the prevalence of racism in America and distract from the government shutdown debacle and the disaster that is Obamacare, I disagree with Jones’ belief that the team name honors Native Americans.  In a recent Infowars broadcast, he compares the Redskins to other NFL teams like the Minnesota Vikings, believing the name Redskins similarly conveys bravery, honor and strength.  There are a couple of problems with this comparison however.  I staunchly defend Alex Jones against accusations of racism, but I believe he is misinformed in this case.  Native American tribes are sovereign nations and they exist as such to this day.  The Vikings were an ancient, seafaring people, who’s culture has since been absorbed by modern society over the centuries, much like the ancient Celts, Saxons, Hittites, Vandals, Moors, etc.  The term “Viking” is from the Old Norse and means roughly, “one who takes part in an overseas expedition”; unlike “redskin”, there is no derogatory association.   Although, if any modern-day Vikings existed, they might very well protest the romanticized image of a gruff, blonde-haired warrior, complete with horned helmet, which historians conclude was only used in religious ceremonies, not in battle.  They might also protest their entire culture being reduced to a football mascot.  “Redskin” is a slur, the same as “nigger” or “wetback” or “slanty-eye”.  Yes, so we’re told Native Americans called Europeans “paleface”- arguably also a slur.  Personally, I’m not offended, but I might be if a Native-owned football team called themselves the Plymouth Palefaces and made the likeness of say, a crazed Reverend Dimmesdale spiking a football their logo!

So what about other teams, like the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame?  Their mascot is basically a bare-knuckled boxing leprechaun.  Pretty offensive if you’re of Irish decent, right?  In this case, maybe not.  Why?  Because the Irish people have become part of the dominant culture in America.  I suspect the case might be different if the team was owned by an English lord in the sixteenth century.  So, it’s also a matter of setting.  Native Americans are not part of the dominant culture; they continue to suffer the devastating effects of European colonization and a great many live in startling poverty.  What becomes lost to history is the fact that each tribe of the Americas had a unique culture; for a long period of time, their collective way of life was officially targeted by the U.S. government for complete eradication.  Dan Snyder didn’t personally conquer the Natives, but he certainly profits from their “brave” legacy.

With that being said, not all Natives are offended by the team’s name.  Not all Natives take offense to being called “Indians” or “American Indians”, despite the fact that the term originates from Christopher Columbus’ faulty conclusion that he had landed in the East Indies when he came ashore in the Caribbean; he called the indigenous people he found living there indios.  I live on a reservation in Montana and have personally witnessed tribal members wearing Washington Redskins jackets and Cleveland Indians hats; for some it is a matter of pride.  Many call each other Indians.  Whether or not that should be discouraged is not really for me to decide.  Similarly, in the song Sucka Nigga (1993) by the group A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip raps, “And being that we use it as a term of endearment” in reference to the word “nigger”, pointing out that for many young Black people, the word serves as an expression of friendship.  The song was part commentary on the heated debate over the use of the word at the time. Some African-American people are offended by the word, others are not.  Some prefer to be called “Black” instead of African-American.  For most, whether or not an offense has been committed depends entirely on whom is using the word and whom it’s directed at.  I don’t recall ever hearing a Native call another Native “redskin”.  It’s not necessarily the wording you choose, but what’s in your heart that matters; that’s the general consensus.  But that wording can still evoke pain.

I have to agree with Obama and Bob Costas here, who called the team’s name an “insult” and a “slur” during NBC’s Sunday Night Football broadcast (featuring the Washington Redskins vs. the Dallas Cowboys ironically), although the manner in which these types of political distractions are disseminated to the people (frequently through NBC) is questionable.  The political pressure is on and the media is gearing up.  We don’t need the government to step in here; we should leave it up to the people to protest or boycott the Redskins or the NFL if they see fit.  But I do think Dan Snyder, the NFL and much of the conservative media need to lend an ear to Native people’s objections.  I’m sure most Natives feel there are more pressing issues concerning their people that they’d rather have the President address, and Bob Costas never took issue with the name Redskins before that I can recall, but changing the team’s name would serve as an important gesture of respect, nonetheless.
