The Hole in Our Mind


By Anna Von Reitz

One summer a friend of mine worked in a tomato harvesting factory.  She worked in the Sorting Room — a huge warehouse-like facility with conveyor belts running along tables and teams of workers standing on either side of the belt pitching rotten tomatoes into bins and gradually separating produce quality fruits from canning quality fruits.  It was quite an operation and over time, the workers became very adept at plucking tomatoes off the conveyor and sending them here, there, and everywhere that tomatoes needed to go.

Our brains have similar capacities for sorting information.  We are able to process large quantities of input via our neural nets and respond appropriately most of the time based on our sensors and our information sieves that sorts out our thoughts the same way that those workers sorted tomatoes.

Some thoughts are big enough to rise to the level of consciousness, while other thoughts get shuttled away into the trash bin or warehoused for future reference or even acted upon without any very conscious thought taking place at all.  We even have built in information categories that batch together similar thoughts or similar kinds of information and we have biases related to our perceptions that help keep us from being overwhelmed.

We learn that, statistically, that tickle on the arm is most likely caused by a mosquito, not a spider, not a wasp, not a bee, not a twig hanging down from a nearby tree. So we act upon our sensory perceptions according to patterns and habits and prior experiences, which provide us with assumptions about all the various stimuli we receive.

Sometimes this lack of care in observing actual facts in favor of assumptions about facts costs us very dearly, especially when our assumptions are provably wrong and we cling to them anyway.

This is what I call the “Hole in Our Mind” phenomenon. Suddenly, without any warning, a gaping hole appears in our mental conveyor belt and all the “tomatoes” — our thoughts — get dumped into an unseen trash bin under the table and we just carry on as if nothing happened.

Mankind as a whole isn’t able to deal with certain perceptual realities.

For example, we consistently get mixed up about the relationship between an actual thing and a symbolic representation of it.  This weakness is fully exploited by the purveyors of money, who give you an intrinsically worthless representation of value — a coin, a pretty piece of paper, a wampum bead or whatever — and confuse you into believing that the symbol has value commensurate with what it represents.

Queen Semiramis began the practice of representing the value of a bushel of wheat as a small gold coin with a picture of a basket of wheat stamped on it.  That way instead of transporting actual bushels of wheat back and forth, she could just move the value of the wheat using symbols.  Money was born.

Suddenly, you could represent the market value of forty bushels of wheat as a small pile of coins, and that was, of course, very convenient.  As long as nobody caught on or objected, you could trade the value of those forty bushels of wheat —supposedly represented by those forty little coins—- for ten horses and two large sacks of figs.  Why not?

The fact that there is in fact a very large difference between forty bushels of wheat and forty little coins “representing” wheat quickly got lost in the neural net, dropped through the hole in our mind, and the game was on.  Suddenly those little gold coins were thought to have intrinsic value in-and-of-themselves.  They were magic coins. They could be transformed into any good or service so long as people would trade for them.

Alas, inflation set in, and the Queen began stamping two bushels of wheat on each coin.  By the end of the first great experiment with money, there were thirty-one tiny, tiny wheat baskets being stamped on each coin and one day the people woke up and said, “There’s no way that this little coin is worth thirty-one bushels of wheat!”

Everyone got upset.  Wars were fought.  The economy and the civilization it supported collapsed.

Did we stop and learn anything from that?  Not a bit.  The idea of “representing the value” of actual commodities using coins and other symbols–even digits in a bank ledger— had taken hold, and even though we have cause to know that this is logically impossible, we can’t seem to shake the delusion. It drops right through the hole in our minds.

No doubt our Creator knew about this design flaw in our logic sensors and that is why at Exodus 20:4 we read that we are not to take unto ourselves any graven image “representing” anything at all.  What does it mean to “take unto” ourselves?  To accept in trade, to receive, to hold onto graven images— money, in other words.

As usual, the Bible forewarns us and gives us good advice, which we ignore and then suffer from as a result.  Within the context of scripture, graven images  are idols and the use of money to “represent” other things is every bit as much a part of idolatry as using a little carved statue to represent a god.

And it is just as silly and primitive, too.

Consider this fact— if I were to gather all the priests and pastors and teachers of Islam together in a great convocation — who among them would not be an idolater if I had them empty their pockets?

Somehow we have to mentally grow up and step far enough back and away from what we are doing to realize that the whole idea of money is an illusion which has enslaved us and made us dependent upon the purveyors of money—which is nothing but another “manufactured commodity” to be managed and manipulated by goons.

We are so far deluded about money that we don’t even realize that we can carve our own littleTiki-gods and set a price on them and be much farther ahead without all the middlemen.

Maybe its time that we took the Bible’s advice, realized that symbolic thinking is not our forte, and focused on learning to give each other credit, instead.

Survey: Okay To Kill Two Million People In A Preemptive Nuclear Attack


Revisiting Hiroshima In Iran: What Americans Really Think About Using Nuclear Weapons And Killing Noncombatants

By Chuck Baldwin

A recent survey conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) revealed a chilling discovery: a majority of Americans are apparently agreeable to preemptively nuking other nations, knowing that millions of civilians would die. The theoretical nation used in the survey was Iran. And the MIT survey found that 60% of the American people would be willing to preemptively nuke Iran, knowing that 2 million civilians would be killed. (How paradoxical that I am reporting on this unnerving news on the day that we remember when Japan preemptively attacked our naval installations at Pearl Harbor in 1941.)

This new survey is a reversal of decades of public opinion regarding the use of atomic or nuclear weapons following Harry Truman’s decision to drop atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945, which resulted in the deaths of some 120,000 Japanese people—most of whom were civilians. Plus, those were immediate deaths; they do not count the thousands who died slow, agonizing deaths from radiation poisoning.

From 1945 to the early 2000s, virtually every survey confirmed that the American people saw the atomic bombings on Japan as morally wrong and did not want to see a repeat of the bombings. It seemed that the American citizenry had a renewed understanding and reverence for “Just War” principles that valued the innocent lives of foreigners following the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. From the early 2000s to the present day, however, the American people seem to have lost their reverence for “Just War” and their respect for innocent lives in other countries.

It is not surprising to me that of the respondents who favored nuking and killing 2 million Iranians, most were Republicans (approximately 70%). I have said for years that conservatives and, especially, Christians (who comprise a large percentage of the Republican Party) have become rabid warmongers. I was not wrong.

See the MIT survey here:

Because G.W. Bush was seen as a devout “born again” Christian and had the support of the entire Religious Right, I tried to warn people that when Bush introduced his preemptive war doctrine and invaded Iraq and Afghanistan—and simultaneously launched his “war on terror” (meaning war on Muslims, except for Muslims in Saudi Arabia, of course)—he was in the process of forever changing the fundamental philosophy and theology of America’s Christians. And, again, I was not wrong.

And now Donald Trump is taking the war fever implanted in conservatives and Christians by G.W. Bush to a whole new level.

Of course, Trump is not alone in beating the drums for nuclear war. For all intents and purposes, FOX News could accurately be labeled a “ministry of (war) propaganda.” FOX celebrities such as Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee constantly beat the war drums. And they are not alone either. Republican pastors throughout America use a twisted interpretation of Scripture to work their Christian congregations into a war fever almost every Sunday. I’m talking about pastors such as John Hagee, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Robert Jeffress. You know: the same ones who are Trump’s “spiritual advisors.”

After reading the MIT survey, international lawyer and journalist Darius Shahtahmasebi wrote, “One would have to wonder if most Americans are even aware that the Trump administration is spending billions of dollars developing its nuclear technology far beyond what America’s rivals can match. Recognizing the nuclear threat America poses to Russia and its interests, particularly by having NATO members surround Russia with its anti-missile defense system, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a warning last year that Russia was modernizing its missile systems in preparation for what’s to come.

“Russia has also warned multiple times about attacking Iran and views Iran as a strategic ally. This is just one of the factors Americans should take into account when considering the use of nuclear weapons.”

Ask the 70% of Republicans who favor killing 2 million Iranian civilians in a preemptive nuclear attack to name exactly what Iran has done to merit such death and destruction, and it is doubtful that nary a one could come up with an answer. All they know is that Donald Trump and James Mattis and Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee and John Hagee and Robert Jeffress and, oh yes, Benjamin Netanyahu say that Iran (and Syria) is “bad” and must be destroyed.

Donald Trump, Republican neocons, and evangelical Christians seem to be salivating for global war. The neocons in Washington, D.C., are working to achieve a Rothschild/Goldman Sachs economic hegemony over the world. And conservative Christians are working to give the Zionist State of Israel political and military hegemony over the Middle East and trying to help usher in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ (as if He needs their help).

I’ll say it plainly: modern evangelical Christianity has been co-opted by Talmudic Zionism. Dispensational prophecy teaching regarding the modern State of Israel has turned Christians—who ostensibly have dedicated themselves to following the Prince of Peace—into cold, callused purveyors of WAR.

Yes, all of this war fever is due to ONE thing: blind support for the Zionist State of Israel.

Christians have been misled into believing that the Rothschild Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 is Biblical Israel. IT IS NOT. Modern Israel is NOT Biblical Israel; modern Jerusalem is NOT Biblical Jerusalem. They are not remotely the same.

Now these misguided Christian Zionist zealots have convinced Donald Trump that he is on some kind of holy crusade in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Folks, the Biblical city of Jerusalem was completely and thoroughly destroyed by God in 70 AD and does not exist—not in any shape, manner, or form. Even the Western Wall (sometimes called the “Wailing Wall”) was not part of the Biblical city of Jerusalem. As I have noted before, the so-called Western Wall that is purported to be “the last standing wall of the Jewish Second Temple” was actually not part of the wall of Jerusalem at all.

The New Testament record and the Jewish historian Josephus are clear that there was NOTHING remaining of the Jewish temple, wall, or city after the siege of Titus in 70 AD.

“And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things walls? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (Matthew 24:2 KJV)

Josephus wrote: Titus gave orders to “demolish the whole city and temple except three towers. . . . But for the rest of the wall, it was laid so completely even with the ground by those who dug it up from the foundation, that there was nothing left to make those believe who came hither that it had ever been inhabited.” (“Jewish Wars,” b. 6 chapter 4, section 5-7)

The so-called Western Wall is actually a wall from the Roman Fortress Antonia. It was NEVER part of the Jewish Second Temple.

The Roman emperor Hadrian constructed a new city (built in Roman style) over the ruins of the Biblical city of Jerusalem around 136 AD that was called Aelia (his family name in Rome) Capitolina (honoring the Roman gods of the Capitoline Triad: Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva). And let’s not forget that the many wars and invasions surrounding what was initially named Aelia Capitolina and is now again called Jerusalem includes “The Siege of Jerusalem” of 614 AD, when Jews slaughtered tens of thousands of Christians in the city and destroyed their monuments and churches, including the original Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Over the millennia, the city has been occupied by Romans, Persians, Byzantines, Arabs (including Christian Arabs), Muslims, Greeks, Bulgarians, Georgians, Armenians, Syrians, Egyptians, Maronites, Jacobites, Coptics (Egyptian Christians), Ottoman Turks, the British, and now Ashkenazi Jews or Zionists.

Again, the current city of Jerusalem is NOT Biblical Jerusalem. Therefore, all of the Biblical references made to it by modern Christians are sorely misapplied.

When the Apostle Paul looked at the Biblical city of Jerusalem around 60 AD (ten years before God used the Roman General—later the Roman Caesar—Titus to utterly destroy the city in fulfillment of the prophecy of Jesus in Matthew 24), he said, “Jerusalem which now is . . . is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” (Galatians 4:25, 26 KJV)

The Biblical city of Jerusalem in Judea was under the bondage of the corruption and wickedness of the Pharisees and the Caesars and was destined for destruction by God. The Christians in Paul’s day had absolutely NO scriptural loyalty or duty to that doomed and damned city. And that was true BEFORE God destroyed the city. To think that Christians today have some kind of scriptural loyalty or duty to a Roman-built pagan city—a city that is a modern spiritual fraud and that is currently controlled by anti-Christ Talmudists and Zionists—is lunacy. The only Jerusalem that Christians have any loyalty and duty to is the “Jerusalem which is above,” also called “new Jerusalem” (Revelation 3:12; 21:2), “heavenly Jerusalem” (Hebrews 12:22), and “holy Jerusalem” (Revelation 21:10), the city not made with hands.

Moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem holds ZERO spiritual significance and ZERO political benefit. Instead, in the modern geopolitical environment, Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is a deliberate incitement of war. It gives U.S. condonance and recognition to an illegal occupation force, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and it condemns Palestinian Christians and Muslims to greater persecution and oppression.

It is obvious that TRUMP WANTS WAR—and apparently so do a majority of Christian Zionists in this country. Of course, the warmongering Christian Zionists think they are all going to be “raptured” to heaven before the nuclear Armageddon that they are helping to create incinerates THEM. They are in for a very rude awakening.

This new philosophy adopted by the American people—abandoning “Just War” principles—is the direct result of the combined indoctrination emanating from FOX News and, especially, from America’s evangelical pulpits.

Long gone are the Biblical principles of Natural Law—including the Law of Nations. Long gone are the principles and wisdom of America’s Founding Fathers. I tell you, folks: when 70% of conservatives and Christians in the Republican Party believe it is right to murder 2 million innocent people in a preemptive nuclear attack, it is VERY late in the day for our country.

This reality is another illustration of just how important it is that Americans be educated in the founding principles of our nation. This was the motivation behind our production of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS.

We began offering THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS nearly 20 years ago, in which we compiled dozens of the greatest documents of American history in one beautiful volume.

Now, for the very first time, we have revised THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS, which includes the addition of 13 brand new documents—along with the expansion of several existing documents (and also including a brand new beautiful front cover)—bringing the total number of full-size pages to 212. That’s over 40 pages more than the original FREEDOM DOCUMENTS.

I am truly excited about this brand new edition of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS. The documents we have added make this volume the greatest collection of the most important documents of liberty and constitutional government ever produced—documents that, if applied, would restore the blessings of Heaven to our land.

This unique compilation of America’s greatest documents is available nowhere else.

You can have these great documents at your fingertips in one beautifully bound, easy-to-read format. These are the documents that gave birth to the greatest free nation on earth. Again, nowhere else that we know of can you find these documents complete in one volume under one title. This compilation of documents is available only here—and this special Christmas printing is very limited and will not last long. Plus, if you want a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS it is important that you order NOW.

To order or to learn more about THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS, go here:


Unless someone or something is able to bring them to their senses, I fear that warmongering preachers and politicians in America are about to unleash a global catastrophe unlike the world has ever known. And if that happens, it would be the principles of liberty contained in THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS that would, once again, save the world from perpetual darkness. And it is also the liberty principles contained in THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS that could prevent such a catastrophe from ever taking place.

MAGAnomics As Predicted:The Federal Reserve is Fighting Itself


← Au revoir Paris – President Macron to President Trump: “We have a friendship that transcends time”….

Mick Mulvaney Introduces “MAGAnomics”… →

by sundance

In 2016 CTH first predicted the intellectual economic disconnect that would arise out of the paradigm shift in economic principles. Initially I called it “the economic third dimension” – SEE HERE.

As time progressed through the second fiscal quarter of 2017 (Jan-March) again, we noted how the Federal Reserve was exactly failing to understand this “third dimension”; the space between Wall Street and Main Street fiscal policy – SEE HERE.

Finally today, for the first time, we see a federal reserve voting official begin to question the underlying economic assumptions of the Fed. Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans is the first federal official to identify the disconnect between federal economic policy and actual economic outcomes:

WASHINGTON – […] Inflation has run below the Fed’s 2 percent target over the past eight years, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans noted.

“This is a serious policy outcome miss,” he said in remarks prepared for a conference in Idaho.

[…] Even as inflation has tumbled this year, Fed officials have brushed it off, indicating that they believe that one-off factors are keeping prices low. Those include cellphone service prices cratering because of carriers bidding to offer unlimited data plans. Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen and others have suggested that inflation is likely to head back up after those temporary price drops slow overall prices.

“My inflation outlook is not quite as sanguine,” said Evans, setting himself apart from others at the central bank. He added that the Fed needs to hit the 2 percent target “sooner rather than later.”

Evans’ comments are the first sign of a Fed official appearing to reconsider plans to continuing raising interest rates this year. Evans is a voting member of the Fed’s monetary policy committee. He has voted twice this year to increase rates.

But inflation has continued to move lower, testing the Fed’s patience. The Consumer Price Index fell in June to 1.6 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.

Fed officials favor rising inflation not for its own sake, but as a sign that the economy is running as well as it could. Predictable 2 percent annual inflation, they believe, allows for businesses and individuals to plan ahead. (read more)

It is not “one-off factors”. The cause of inflationary outcomes not matching Fed predictions, is specifically because we are inside the inverse Maganomic space.

Yeah, forgive me – but I’m feeling a little vindicated after a year where multiple “intellectuals” stated my fundamental outlook on the U.S. economy was a theory too far ‘out there‘ to be real.  This ‘out there‘ theory is quickly becoming the ‘right here‘ reality.

As we shared at the beginning of the 3rd quarter (April-June) , I repeat as we begin the 4th quarter (July – Sept).

People may ignore this, but it does not change reality.

A series of recent headline articles [Jan-Feb ’17] – about traditional economic analysts, government and private, perplexed by financial and consumer trends – highlights the disconnect inherent amid those who cannot reset their frame of economic reference.

For 30+ years U.S. economic political policy has been driven by Wall Street interests. STOP. Main Street, the middle-class and the American worker have suffered. STOP. The successful election of Donald Trump, and the execution of his “main street” economic policy agenda, has sledgehammered the prior economic machine into a full seizure an halt.

(WSJ Article Link)

It was Albert Einstein who aptly stated:

“The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.”

The same basic principle applies to those who are trying to understand and evaluate current economic activity yet failing to disengage themselves from their historic economic frames of reference.

The mindset framed around thirty years of financial political policy, intended to influence the U.S. economy and created by vested interests who were building out the legislative priorities based on Wall Streets’ best interests, will struggle to understand the new landscape which is entirely formulated to benefit Main Street.

The two economic engines, Main Street and Wall Street, are entirely detached. Time, along with focus only on Wall Street interests, has pushed those two economic engines further apart.  No-one is understanding the space between the two engines. The same policies which worked in the immediate past will not work in the immediate future.

(WSJ Article Link)

The new dimension in U.S. economics  is de-emphatic consumer spending on low-turn durable goods (measured by fed), and emphatic consumer spending on high-turn consumable goods (not measured by fed).

Just Keep Watching!

The two economic engines are now in reverse level of importance.  Trump economics or “MAGAnomics” focuses on Main Street’s economic engine.  The Fed is stuck focusing on the economy through the three-decades-old prism of Wall Street’s economic engine.

We are now in the economic space between both engines. The traditional cause and effect (Fed) is now uncoupled.  The administrators of the economy are perplexed; this is unfamiliar terrain.

  • Wage rates will be driven up by inflation in ‘non-measured’ high-turn, domestic  consumable goods: food, fuel, energy.  The Fed does not measure this segment for inflation.
  • Inflation, from the perspective of the Fed will appear artificially low because prices on the measured segment will be static: non-domestic durable goods, housing etc.  Durable good prices will remain static, and in the short term fall surreptitiously – seemingly unattached to the larger expanding economy.

Until the two economies gain parity – any fed activity, taken as a consequence to their familiar traditional measurements (inflation, interest rates etc.), will have minimal to negligible impact on Main Street.

Home values and local economic factors will be driven by “regional” economies. Period.

The exact same areas of the country which have gone through two decades of economic contraction will now see economic expansion and revitalization.  The Fed policy which influences Wall Street was not, and is not, domestic centric.  The fed policy is corporate driven, globalist in influence.

If you are making economic decisions, large purchase decisions, over the next year to year-and-a-half, take this into consideration.   Large durable goods will become cheaper over the next six months bottoming out sometime around Christmas 2017/Spring 2018.

Auto Sector. – Any auto lease rate in the next 6 months to a year will go up, considerably.  Don’t lease a car mid 2017 through all of 2018.  Actuarials are trying to gauge the forecast incoming glut of auto inventory due to high lease rates in 2016 (30%+) that will be turned in late ’17 and throughout ’18.

Conversely, late 2017 through 2018/2019 the price of a low mileage used car (former lease) will necessarily plummet.  If you are thinking of purchasing a vehicle, wait about six months and then consider a solid used vehicle.  You’ll be able to buy a two-year-old low mileage $100k+ high-end luxury vehicle for the same price as a mid-size economy car.

Regional economies will continue to drive home values.

  • Areas which benefited from high yield and high rates of return from Wall Street, ie. investment benefactors, will begin economic contraction. The downstream effect on retail and high-end service industries will also be negatively impacted.
  • However, industrial areas with affordable housing and infrastructure, which have suffered in the past 20+ years, will see home values increasing as the local economy expands.

National policy (Trump Policy) which benefits Main Street also benefits local economics which are founded in manufacturing, production, and ancillary services.  In essence, the Middle-Class.

Those who benefited from high-yield international investment income will see less income.  Those who live on savings will see a moderate benefit.  However, those living day-to-day and week-to-week on their paychecks will see much more income.  Believe it.




CNN’S “Useful Idiot” Jake Tapper Cheerleads Muslims To Serve In American Government


Read More Articles by Bradlee Dean

“Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine. . . . Far from being rivals or enemies, religion (Christian faith) and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other.” – James Wilson, U. S. Supreme Court Justice & signer of the Constitution

Before we get to the pith and the marrow of this important topic of countering revisionist and CNN “Useful Idiot” Jake Tapper concerning a “religious test,” we must first understand that the term “religion” to the Forefathers always fell underneath the umbrella of the Christian faith (Lutheran, Catholic, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Methodist, Wesleyan, Baptist etc… Not Hindu, Islam, Buddhist, etc.)


For example, if I were to go to India, I would expect them to rule according to their religious beliefs of Hinduism, and they do.

If I went to China, I would expect them to rule according to their religion of Buddhism, and they do.

If I went to a Muslim nation, I would expect that they would oppress through their religious totalitarian methods of Sharia law, and they do.

Furthermore, do you suppose for one minute that Barack Hussein Obama would have been elected president or given a pass to entertain America’s enemies within the people’s White House or to “fundamentally transform” America if he did not lie and profess to be a Christian? No way.


So, in America, a Christian nation, it should come as no surprise to rule according to the Mosaic Institution, and so we do (Exodus 18:21).

[YouTube Video]

[Facebook/CNN Video]

As you can see, Jake Tapper questioned Roy Moore’s comment in which he stated that a “Muslim” should not be allowed to be a member of Congress, by asking why and under what Constitutional provision?

What are you saying Jake, that some representatives are to uphold our enumerated Laws and some are okay to transgress and destroy? Is that somehow permissible?

This is what he is clearly stating.  If there is no vow to serve “We the People” honestly, being held accountable before the One true God, then what will be the consequence?

“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.” -Siraj Wahhaj

Countering this lunacy…

“And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without (Christian) religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious (Christian) principle.” – Charles Carrol, signer of the Declaration of Independence

Maybe, Muslim cheerleader Jake Tapper has mysteriously conjured up that those who mean to conquer and destroy this country have the freedom to do so.  Apparently, Mr. Tapper does not realize that his freedoms come from one God and His Son, Jesus Christ (John 8:36; 2 Corinthians 3:17).

According to many ignorant Americans, Freedom of Religion now means whatever they want it to mean, and that to their own demise (Proverbs 26:27), even when it runs antithetical to our Constitutional Republic, which is based upon the Mosaic institution called Common Law.

Though they may be afforded asylum here, those individuals that come to America should be processed into American society, by being properly vetted to assimilate to our ways of life before they serve anybody.

[YouTube Video]

Common sense does come into play here.

First, it is clear that our rights come from the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Second, remember that our Right-Giver did not give us a right to transgress His law (1 John 3:4) and serve other gods (Exodus 20:3-5).

Furthermore, America is a self-professed Christian nation and to do otherwise will bring about war within the gates (Judges 5:8).

Jake Tapper then goes on to tell his guest, “You don’t actually have to swear in on a Christian Bible, You can swear in on anything really, I don’t know if you knew that?”

Did anything, or did someone bestow His blessing’s on this country? (Acts 14:17)

Just think of that.

This communicates to the people and those who represent them that we are not accountable nor obligated to uphold the laws of the Lawgiver, who saved us from our sins (Matthew 1:21) and maintains our freedoms, which feeds into a system of anarchy while giving power to the state.

Jake Tapper clearly has an evolutionary view of government.

Is this the example set before us by the American founders of this country? Absolutely not!

Here, in part, are some of the oaths of affirmation in America before one could serve.

Delaware Constitutional requirements for men in office:

“I do profess faith in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and in the Holy Ghost, blessed forevermore…”

Pennsylvania’s Constitution:

“I do believe in One God, the Creator and Governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked…”

The Massachusetts Constitution is along the same lines.

North Carolina’s Constitution:

“No person who shall deny the being of God, or the truth of the {Christian} religion, or the divine authority whither of the Old or New Testaments, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the state, shall be capable of holding office, or place of trust or profit in the civil department, within the state.”

Every state in our American union starts out acknowledging, guess who? You got it!

[YouTube Video]

The Constitution

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States. – Article 6, Section 3, US Constitution

Let’s tear down (Judges 6:25-32) the revisionists and their purposefully distorted version of what our Founders have clearly bestowed upon us.

[YouTube Video]

BTW, Wikipedia also has a No Religious Test Clause on their site in accordance with the lies of the American Civil Liberties Union. It stated:

This clause is cited by advocates of separation of church and state as an example of the “original intent” of the Framers of the Constitution to avoid any entanglement between church and state, or involving the government in any way as a determiner of religious beliefs or practices. This is significant because this clause represents the words of the original Framers, even prior to the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

Remember, founder of the ACLU Roger Baldwin said, “Communism is the goal.”

It comes to this:  These media outlets, useful idiots, and organizations clearly fly in the face of everything that we are.

Either we are one nation under God, or we are one nation gone under! (Psalm 33:12)

Causes for Peace


By Anna Von Reitz

I was recently asked my opinion about the situation in the Middle East.  This was carefully couched with all sorts of historical and political considerations and rationalizations.  To me, it all comes down to scripture, and whether or not you believe it.

If you believe scripture then there is no mystery whatsoever involved in the situation in the Middle East.

It says that if the Hebrew people (both Jew and Israelite from the Ten Tribes qualify) obey and follow the Law and precepts given to them, they will be blessed and will flourish and have abundance and peace and all good things. If they don’t follow the Law and precepts, they will be cursed in equal measures, and the scriptures then go on and describe what these curses will be.

Carrot and stick. It was the way the Lord had of dealing with stiff-necked people.

You want it this way, or you want it that way, and it’s your free choice.

Now, nothing the Lord does is happenstance.  And nothing He does changes unless He changes it. So you can be sure that the same choice is there for them today.  You want peace…… you want war….. it’s up to you.

As for the Arabs, the sons of Abraham by Hagar, they are not cursed and they are not prohibited from living in the land of Israel, but the land of Israel is not promised to them.  They have all the land outside of Israel, and nothing to complain of, because their own land is or can be as fair as anything in Israel. All they have to do is stop being jealous and stubborn and make use of modern technology to make the desert bloom again.

The entire region can be a garden.

They have all the energy they could ever need and with all the new tech that is available now, they can have all the fresh water they need.  Throw in some vegetable seeds and tree seedlings and the entire Middle East will bloom.  Imagine olive groves and cedar groves and apples and oranges and pecans and every kind of good growing thing taking root and growing where there are bare rocks and sand dunes now.

Today, we can do this.

All that is needed is for the different “sides” of this one family to wake up and heal their differences and stop being jealous of each other.  What was given to one is not given to the other, but look at what is possible?

When my Father died and it came time for my Sister and I to split up the property I gave her whatever she wanted.  Freely.  She had first choice of everything.  So she can never complain with me for the choices she made, but as the years have gone by, she has found that she regrets some things. She feels bad for having taken things she knew I liked and wants to give them back.

The fact is that we all have our blessings, things that are hand-tailored for us and given to us, and if someone else takes those things they bring them no joy. Why?  Because in some special way, those things belong to us, and no force or fraud or happenstance can chance that.  What God gives, He gives.

So it isn’t even generosity on our parts to give back what is not truly ours. It is wisdom, instead.  It is by being happy with all those very special things that we have been given— recognizing and cherishing our own blessings which are ours in the same way, that peace and joy and contentment come.  When the Arab nations read the Old Testament and see what it says, they have cause to know the truth.  They should know from the words of their own Father and from the True God to their Mother what to expect and what to do.

Leave Israel.  Just leave it, and concentrate instead on all the fantastic glories that have been given to the other sons of Abraham. They can and should put their time and energy and love into rebuilding their own cities and their own lands, to cherishing their own gardens and their own people.  This is the wise thing to do, because nobody can change what God has given or question what He has not given.

What is yours is yours, in the realm of Heaven and on Earth.

The Arab nations have more than enough power and energy and money to give every Muslim now living in Israel lands and fortunes far in excess of anything they now have, simply by moving home and living among Muslim neighbors and not having this strife anymore.  Why not do so?  Open up their inheritance, and they won’t want someone else’s. They will look back on their hovels in Israel and laugh with joy.

The same thing with the Muslim immigrants fleeing to Europe.  These people are in dismay.  They are facing prejudice and anger.  They are confused and unhappy.  They may not being bombed or attacked by drones anymore, but they are among foreigners and trying to adjust to a strange climate and hostile neighbors who feel that they are being imposed upon.

Arab nations?  Among the most wealthy of the wealthy on Earth?  Open your borders and your arms to your own people.  Welcome them home and put them to work rebuilding your lands and building the fresh water projects and farms that will make your nations blossom like Eden again.  Put aside this senseless warring and jealousy.  You cannot gainsay the God of your Fathers, but you can pay attention to your own blessings.

As she has grown older, my older Sister no longer feels so needy.  Things are not wanted just because they are lovely or useful or valuable.  They have to be hers.  They have to feel right.   They have to have that special sense of belonging to her.  Everything else she gives away and sends these blessings on their path, hoping that they find their way to those they do belong to.

Whatever she kept of mine long ago no longer matters. Times change, people change, needs change. What was mine twenty years ago and which should have gone to me to enjoy at that time, is no longer mine, either.  It belongs to someone else now.  And that’s all right.

As for the fights in the Middle East, they could be over in five minutes.  All that is required is that men look for and find their own blessings, and decide to themselves that it is better to look for the causes for peace than to search out the causes for war.

There will always be mistakes.  There will always be “sins”— which is just another name for mistakes.  There will always be “debts” — which is just another name for mistakes.  But we have the ability to correct our mistakes most of the time, and we always have the opportunity to learn from them and do better next time.  We don’t have to keep on butting our heads against Divine Laws, like children determined to conquer gravity.

In truth, if we were all letting go of all the things that don’t belong to us, but which we have mistakenly latched onto, and instead, paying attention and accepting and caring for those things and people that do belong to us, this would already be a happy and abundant world.

So how to bring peace to the Middle East?  Read the Old Testament.  Understand what it says.  Accept it.  And be happy.

Go on and celebrate all that God has given to all of us— life and love and enough and more to come.  Let the Arab nations wake up to their own blessings at last.  Let the people of Israel read their own choices— to be blessed or cursed, as they will, and let them have peace from the outside world.

My Sister and I are close now, closer than we have ever been.  The things that stood between us because they were mine and she wanted them no longer stand between us.  Likewise, the hurt she felt because she took them from me and had no pleasure in them, no longer matters, either.  She learned a very hard lesson and realized that life moves on, and sometimes when we take things that belong to others, you can’t just give them back.  That moment is gone.

What remains is her growing wisdom and thankfulness for all the blessings that are hers, including my steadfast love.

And that is what must ultimately remain festering in the hearts of the people of the Middle East, because somewhere someone realizes that at the bottom of this is love—and nothing is more troublesome than love denied.  The Jews and the Israelites and the Muslims secretly love each other, which is why they are jealous of each other and fight with each other, because they are all brothers from the same stem, the same family tree, still scrapping all these generations later over what belongs to whom and which blessings are theirs.

When the nations seek the causes for peace, there will be peace.  When they look at their neighbors and see themselves, there will be peace.  When they question their hearts and ask— is this mine?  They will know the truth.  And there will be peace and gladness, too, for when men embrace their blessings and take right action for the right reasons, God shines through.

FBI Feminist And Political Legacies


Read More Articles by Marilyn M Barnewall

Legacy – What is it?

It’s an inheritance… a heritage or a birthright.  We all leave one behind us when we depart this world.  Actually, we leave more than one legacy behind us.  There are personal legacies… what kind of friend have you been?  There are professional legacies… what kind of employee or employer have you been?  There are creative legacies… and parental legacies, marital legacies, etc.

This year as we approach Christmas and the Christian New Year, it is more important than usual to think of the legacies we leave behind.

Why is it more important than usual this year?  We are going through a generational change – and it is not pretty.

As power gets passed from my son’s and daughter’s generation (my generation passed the power baton to our children years ago), we are watching our failures as parents establish themselves as generational standards of behavior – or, in many cases, a lack of standard.  Equally, today’s generation (my kids and yours) can see what they did right as they watch their children assume political, social, familial, and professional responsibility for the world.  Unfortunately, it gives me the heebie-jeebies to think of Millennials running anything, let alone the world.

Legacies apply only to individuals, not groups.  If a group’s legacy is negative, it is because of the negativity of the individuals who rose to power within that group.  The group’s individual members enabled their success.  Legacies are the exclusive property of individuals.

For example, the legacy of those who have chosen to be Democrats for many years says, based on the achievements and objectives of that group, you support abortion through the 9th month.  I am glad that is your legacy and not mine.  You support socialism rather than capitalism.  You support the elimination of borders for our great nation… though any halfway intelligent person recognizes that borders define the nation and without them it cannot exist… and perhaps that is your objective.  You support sanctuary cities where those who enter our nation unlawfully are entitled to more consideration in our courts, our welfare offices, our schools and colleges, our health care system, than citizens who have worked their entire lives to support the building of those things.

That is your legacy if you are a Democrat… that and the open hatred you spew about the man who was elected by your fellow citizens to be President of the United States.  You see, the hatred doesn’t just hit Donald Trump.  It extends to those of us who voted for and still strongly support him.  You would rather destroy your nation than accept his victory over your crooked as a dog’s hind leg candidate, Hillary Clinton.

You accept and applaud the violence of mobs in the street when the violence is directed against President Trump and are so stupid that you do not realize when you destroy respect for the Office of the President you are destroying citizen respect for the nation… a nation on which you are dependent if you are to have a good, happy and stable future.  Such naïve behavior can only exist when people reject the idea that their legacy is the result of their own choices.

Will the Millennials who are inheriting your mess remember what you have done with gratitude and affection and for the happy future you are providing in this nation?  Is it one in which they can take pride?   Or will they curse you for the debt, the immorality, the lost history and indoctrination rather than education?  It will take them years to learn the truth – but they will learn (eventually and whether or not they want to learn).

If you are a Republican, you have two choices:  You are an establishment Republican who, much like Democrats, willingly support any moral compromise that strengthens your own position of power at the expense of the average person you are supposed to be serving.  If names like Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Corey Gardiner (R-CO), Paul Ryan (R-WI), John Thune (R-SD), Bill Kristol (Publisher, Weekly Standard), and all of the others who went to opulent Sea Island to discuss ways they can make President Donald Trump fail come to mind, you understand what I’m saying.

Or, you’re a conservative Republican who supports our Constitution, the Rule of Law, and our populist President.  In that case, your political legacy is the Constitution, truth, and the Rule of Law.

The establishment Republicans are actually worse than the amoral Democrats and their legacy will be one of a small group which arrogantly believes their few biased minds know better than American voters what is good for the people.  They are worse because they are traitors to the very thing that has given them the opportunity to gain access to the power they so easily abuse.  They are disgusting and will one day pay a horrific penalty for their behavior.

Again, your actions are not taken just against the President.  Rather they are taken against all of us who support him… millions of us to a handful of you.  What arrogance you have – and how badly you wear it.

“But you don’t know this or that about Trump.  Because of who we are and do we know things… and you must believe we are doing what we think best for the nation.”  They may say something similar.  And, to a degree, they may be right.  They may know things we don’t know which might change our minds if we knew them.

That doesn’t change the fact that we, the voters of America, are entitled to enjoy our right decisions and pay the penalty for the wrong ones we make so we can learn from them.  All we need to do either is the truth.  Because of your duplicity, even if you know things we don’t know, we will not have that opportunity because you won’t tell us the truth.  What does that say about you?

A small group (by comparison to the total population) does not have the right to determine the best path for the millions who will have to pay for whatever outcome may result from your carelessness.  That is your legacy… a personal legacy for each of you.  Your names will always be affiliated with Sea Island and what many of us consider treasonous behavior.

That same principle applies to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA).  J. Edgar Hoover left a legacy, didn’t he?  It involved using the nation’s primary law enforcement agency to gather dirt on anyone and everyone who could influence the direction of the American government and did not hesitate to threaten them with it.  Look how that’s turned out.  That’s his legacy.

How sad to see the FBI lose the trust of the American people.  President Trump may tell the graduating class of FBI agents that he loves law enforcement and he’s got their back, but most of the people will have a bit of disagreement with him about his Justice Department and how well it is being run.  They also disagree with law enforcement’s abuse of power.

If I were writing a novel, I would have a Senator named Jeff who is part of the Never-Trump group of Republicans and I would assign him the responsibility of being the first United States Senator to come out and publicly support this populist non-politician.  I would assign him the task of becoming personally close to the candidate (who no one expects to win… I’d choose him because if the candidate doesn’t win the nomination he is such a popular Senator he won’t lose his seat just because he supported a losing presidential candidate).

When the candidate unexpectedly wins the nomination, then even more unexpectedly wins the presidential election, Jeff would be perfectly positioned to be appointed Attorney General.  In its aftermath, all of the elitists and insiders know the biggest risk of this entire election cycle is for someone who wants to clean the swamp to succeed at becoming President of the United States.

Going right along with the plot, during his Senate Confirmation Hearings, Jeff would swear to remove himself from any investigations involving charges made by the lying Democrats – those whose candidate was so bad even they had a hard time stomaching her.  That will be a major part of the Democrat/Liberal legacy:  the 2016 election campaign and all of the lies.

By recusing himself from having anything to do with the investigation of possible presidential missteps involving Russia during the campaign, the Attorney General can avoid providing badly-needed support for his President.  He turns everything over to the Assistant Attorney General who supports the FBI’s senior management coup d’etat team.

My book plot would move forward by having the AAG appointed to handle all matters related to the Russia matter.  He would appoint a special prosecutor who is the best friend of the former FBI Director the President fired.  Surely this way they will be able to cover up all of the covert and indelicate, unlawful behavior of senior Bureau management members who are totally involved in trying to defeat the new President?  It is a devastating loss by the Democrat candidate whose power supports their corruption.  They are all sickened by her loss.  OMG!  They might even get caught red-handed.

Little by little, however, the new President finds ways to get the truth to the people.  The Attorney General looks ridiculous and incompetent, the Assistant Attorney General looks like a naïve fool who no American wants running the nation’s law enforcement, and all of the members of senior management look like traitors… including the special prosecutor.

What a book plot!  What a legacy these fictional characters are leaving their nation!  Are they fictional you ask?  Of course.  They must be.  No one could be so oblivious to reality as these characters are.

As I said, only individuals leave a legacy.  When their individual stupidity and arrogance enables the group’s objectives to depart from the group’s basic purpose for being, their individual legacy  suffers as does the group’s.  The rules are the same whether it’s the FBI, NOW, or the DNC.  They will forever be remembered for their treachery and lies.  Mostly, they will be remembered for disrespecting the American people and causing them to lose faith in their public servants’ ability to handle the power they were given.  Once lost, trust is never regained.

It will take time, Mr. President, for the people to forgive this grave violation of the public trust.  It will take time and tremendous dedication of those left to clean up the mess.

As for total support for law enforcement, as long as police departments and sheriff’s officers are pulling over people for no apparent violation but are removing from them their personal possessions (and never returning them without a court hearing which may or may not be either affordable or constitutional), I will not subscribe to your commitment to the thin blue line.   Again, the AG’s office should be taking action, but is not.

As the former editor of the National Peace Officer’s Magazine, as a former police officer’s wife (and a former Denver police department employee), I say those words with great sorrow but also with great respect for the rule of law so easily ignored by so many cities, counties and states.  It is unlawful and is a reflection of the sewer that made those who believe senior managers at the FBI should make political decisions on behalf of the American people.

Neither action is to be tolerated in a nation of laws and justice.  At the moment, we have neither.

I could go on and on about legacies left behind… the other one I will mention is feminism – which is anything but representative of most American females.  Their legacy will be to declare that we must believe women who lie about sexual encounters, because women don’t lie about such things… not even 40 years later.

That’s an interesting thought and it is being stated at the same time Los Angeles attorney Lisa Bloom admits that the women who have charged the President of inappropriate behavior towards them have been offered huge sums of money in return for their sudden memories.  It is rumored that Bloom’s law firm will take one-third of the amounts paid to her clients by – we don’t know who.  The amounts paid are, according to news stories, in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.  I believe Bloom has denied much of this… I would, too — wouldn’t you?  That’s one woman I won’t believe.

That is the feminist legacy.  They forgot the charges made against the Duke lacrosse team in 2006.  The North Carolina Attorney General said at the time:  “The Duke lacrosse case has shown that our society has lost sight of the most fundamental principle of our legal system:  the presumption of innocence.”  Some things don’t change and this is one of them.

We are to believe them just because they are women.  It tosses in the trash the rule of law declaring that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, but feminists don’t care.  That’s part of their legacy:  Ignorance of the law and naiveté [perhaps gullibility is a better word].

Perhaps if female morality was more apparent, you might convince me, but probably not.  You wear skirts up to your private parts (without telling men this is the new norm, not an invitation to your bed… though that’s what it looks like to me), you sleep with just about anyone from the time you get to high school, you don’t understand that “choice” occurs at the moment you decide to have sex rather than when you get pregnant and so believe the killing of a baby in your uterus is an acceptable form of birth control… even through the ninth month.

Your group will not be remembered for standing up for the rights of women.  It will be remembered for one of your leaders, a Hollywood elite, wanting to blow up the White House.  It will be remembered for murdering many of God’s most innocent beings… babies in your own belly.

What you represent – your legacy – is that of liberal Democrat women who have no moral compass.  That is your legacy… a group of individuals with no moral compass.

Those are legacies.

And while you are thinking about this, remember that you, too, dear reader will leave a legacy… one either of meaning and positive purpose or of… what?  Or, the groups you belong to will leave a legacy for you.

Be careful whom you support… it will be part of your legacy personally.  And now you know why I resigned from the Republican Party.

Special Treat for the Video Minded


By Anna Von Reitz

More goodies from the Lighthouse Law Club–but BEFORE you all watch this most enlightening video, write this additional piece of information on your wrist for ready reference and think about it very seriously:  ALMOST ALL THE COURTS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE “FEDERAL”.

They are either outright and obvious federal courts in the sense of US District Courts, or they are federated “state” and “county” courts—- federal courts being run “as” state and county courts.

How is this possible?  As I have said before and again, in the 1960’s the states and counties then-operating were seduced by the lure of federal kick-backs euphemistically known as “Federal Revenue Sharing” and “Federal Block Grants” into incorporating themselves as federal corporations.

So even though it is called “The State of Wyoming Superior Court” or “The Clark County Court” what you are really dealing with is a federal franchise operation, just like a Burger King or Dairy Queen franchise, presided over by a District of Columbia Municipality Judge or Magistrate.   The correct description of all these courts is: federal courts, federated state court, and federated county courts, because they are all federal corporation franchise operations and they are all operating under international law of the sea, not law of the land at all.

You have been purposefully mis-identified and mis-characterized in the public records as a federal citizen and federal citizens have no constitutional rights or guarantees.  In the same way, your courts have been usurped upon and foreign international law courts have been substituted for the land jurisdiction courts and public law you are owed.

Keeping that additional Fat Fact in mind, please find or make the time to watch this video from the Lighthouse Law Club:
