‘And I did so in Jerusalem. I not only locked up many of the saints in prison after receiving authority from the chief priests, but when they were put to death I cast my vote against them.’ ~ Acts 26:10

 

Here are some folks who understand the importance of gold:

  • Property rights were eradicated in the name of the Civil Rights (sic) crusade. Therefore, folks should not be surprised to discover that a woman is being brought up on civil rights violations for requesting a Christian roommate—in her own home.  [Update: The charges were later dropped.]
  • Sadly, I found out the hard way that this phone hasn’t been invented yet.
  • Coconut oil is exceptionally helpful for pregnant women, nursing moms, the elderly, those concerned about digestive health, athletes (even weekend warriors), and those of you who just want to enhance your overall health.’
  • So, you have a rat and you have a land mine.  What to do?
  • The truth is that the US is insolvent and its policymakers will stop at nothing in order to avoid sovereign default. So, it should come as no surprise that at its latest meeting, the Federal Reserve downplayed the risk of inflation, thereby setting the stage for another round of money creation.’
  • In the waters off Tybee Island, Georgia, right at the Georgia/South Carolina border and not far from Savannah, buried in about 10 feet of silt is a hydrogen bomb. It’s been there for more than 50 years. . . The sad lesson is that we have less to fear from naked aggression than we do from incompetence and bad engineering.’
  • It wasn’t the New Deal that made folks fond of FDR—it was his push to repeal the 21st Amendment.

Industry Booms as States Vote Repeal of Prohibition’

  • The national security police state has been advancing for years but now that the true takeover of American society is in full swing, Americans are finally beginning to understand that everything supposedly aimed at terrorists is in fact directed towards them.’
  • Rising food prices and shortages could cause instability in many countries as the cost of staple foods and vegetables reached their highest levels in two years, with scientists predicting further widespread droughts and floods.’
  • The economic whizzing contests regarding currency devaluations currently underway (actually, they’ve been underway for quite some time) would be a thing of the past if countries simply backed their currencies with gold. That would mean that they would be forced to live within their means.

The economic storm is gathering.

  • A proper understanding of God’s Providence precludes any serious contemplation of ‘What If’ history, of course (Ephesians 1:11); however, it is sometimes an interesting exercise to imagine how one incident might have affected—and saved—millions of lives, had it occurred differently.
  • We’re the people that live. They can’t wipe us out, they can’t lick us. We’ll go on forever, Pa, cos we’re the people.’
  • Decades from now, I fully expect to see an epidemic of deafness due to the amazing volumes at which folks listen to music. Likewise, we may not be surprised to find an alarming rise in the rate of brain cancer due to cell phones.

Don’t Fear the Cheaper

‘You must have accurate and honest weights and measures, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.’  ~ Deuteronomy 25:15

 

  • This is the situation we face today. There is optimism, despite the obvious fragility of the economy.’

 

  • If this chart doesn’t scare you, then you are in for one big surprise.

 

  • James Harrington, pastor of the Mt. Vernon Missionary Baptist Church, said he set up the [fake fight] scenario to test a white officer’s reaction to a fight between two black men.’

 

 

 

 

While the tribe that Christians should most identify with is the Christian Tribe there can still be diversity of people groupings within this tribe so that a Mongolian Christian, while identifying primarily with the Christian tribe, would, within that tribe, identify most significantly with his or her Mongolian Christian tribe. Trinitarian Christians should have no problem with this since to deny this would be to deny the trinity in favor of a Unitarian God. Think “The One and The Many” here folks.’

 

  • Americans have travelled many miles down the road to serfdom by deluding themselves that the god of democracy will somehow save them from statist slavery.’

 

 

  • I find it difficult to believe that a farm that has been in one family for 378 years could be such a debt trap.

Two Arminians Walk Into a Bar…

‘Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.’  ~ Proverbs 21:9

  • In the Land of the Free, however, you can have cops point guns at you for selling milk. Milk!
  • [U]ntil the debt is wrung out of the system, either through default or raging inflation – there’s no chance of it actually being paid in anything remotely resembling current dollars – the equivalent of an economic Black Death is going to plague the land.’
  • Many of the foods we eat are genetically modified to resist pesticides. The crops absorb the poison—and we eat it.
  • People’s willingness to hold money can change suddenly for a “psychological and spontaneous reason”, causing a spike in the velocity of money [i.e., hyperinflation]. It can occur at lightning speed, over a few weeks. The shift invariably catches economists by surprise. They wait too long to drain the excess money.’
  • Dying of Money’ available for download free of charge here. [UPDATE: Due to a surge in interest, the book is no longer free of charge.  However, a new copy may be obtained here for $34.95.]
  • Jules Dervaes explains why sustainable, local agriculture is vital to our freedom—and survival:

  • The plain truth is that [Abraham] Lincoln was deeply reviled by many who knew him personally, and by hundreds of thousands who only knew of him.’

It’s the $40 oil that is disappearing. There’s still plenty of $200
oil.’ ~ Rick Rule

  • It is now apparent also that the president himself, even before the attack, had intended to order the U.S. armed forces to make a pre-emptive strike against the Japanese in the southwest Pacific in order to assist the British in southeast Asia. But the Japanese “jumped the gun” on him by bombing Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.’
  • Soccer players have lost altogether whatever remained of sportsmanship:

  • We demand that the states of the union shall be preserved in all their vigor and power. They constitute a bulwark against the centralizing and destructive tendencies of the republican party.’ ~ 1924 Democratic Party Platform
  • I forgive you, honey. Now, why don’t you just…go to sleep?
  • China is considering ending its policy of pegging their currency to the Dollar.
  • [O]ur ruling class’s standard approach to any and all matters, its solution to any and all problems, is to increase the power of the government – meaning of those who run it, meaning themselves, to profit those who pay with political support for privileged jobs, contracts, etc.’
  • Lunacy in our government is not new—Hamilton exhibited extraordinary amounts of ridiculousness:

  • Many books have been written on the Calvinism/Arminianism debate. I do not know of any work that presents the debate and the outworking of the different tenets better than this series does. The script tellingly and incisively sets forth the errors of Arminianism, yet it does so compassionately.’
  • In the name of Christian charity, we are being asked nowadays to subsidize evil.’
  • Police State America: Talk About Jesus and Go to Jail.

I’m Not Really Angry–It Just Seems That Way

‘But I will defend my house against marauding forces. Never again will an oppressor overrun my people, for now I am keeping watch.’  ~ Zechariah 9:8

  • Remember when we bombed Kosovo to thwart the ‘genocide’ of Mohammadans by those evil Serbians? Well, surprise, it never happened.
  • More with Peter Schiff on the economy and the falling Dollar:

  • ‘[Federal Reserve Chairman Ben] Bernanke faces the same dilemma, and like Herr Havenstein, he thinks he can save the economy by creating more currency.  Instead, the outcome will be hyperinflation, which not only destroys the currency but also the very economy he set out to save. ‘
  • Second Commandment Watch: Why do they always assert it is an image of Jesus? Having never seen Him face-to-face, how would they know?
  • Dr Tom Woods talks about the growing sentiment in favour of nullification:

The Crusades were not unprovoked. They were not the first round of European colonialism. They were not conducted for land, loot, or converts. The Crusaders were not barbarians who victimized the cultivated Muslims. They sincerely believed that they served in God’s battalions.’

Remember all that ‘freedom’ everybody was singing about a couple of weeks ago? ‘New federal regulations issued this week stipulate that the electronic health records–that all Americans are supposed to have by 2014 under the terms of the stimulus law that President Barack Obama signed last year–must record not only the traditional measures of height and weight, but also the Body Mass Index: a measure of obesity.’

  • They’re still trying to gin up war for Israel with Iran.
  • I know you’re not comfortable with the word “empire,” especially just after the Fourth of July, but you are the Redcoats now.’
  • I know you, little libertine:

Plugging those kinds of gaps means getting creative with new forms of skullduggery. For instance, the State of New York, with its $9 billion budget deficit, is looking at a proposal to borrow $6 billion from its state pension fund in order to make a $6 billion payment due to that same pension fund. Yeah, you read that right.’

  • In a comical move even for a czar-happy president who has rewarded dozens of cronies with distinguished titles, the White House has named the Obamas’ personal Chicago cook as ‘Senior Policy Adviser for Healthy Food Initiatives.’
  • Oh, the Glorous Drug War!! How many people must die before we admit that it is a fool’s errand?
  • It is a competition between ‘entitlement’ spending and military expenditures to determine which will bankrupt us first.

It Rhymes With ‘Tullification’

‘Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from that noisy crowd of evildoers.’  ~ Psalm 64:2

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear – kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor – with the cry of grave national emergency. Always, there as been some terrible evil at home, or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.’ ~ General Douglas MacArthur

  • Is 2010 the year that it all comes crashing down?, or ‘I Heart Gerald Celente’.
  • The concept of nullification has a long and wonderful tradition in our body politic.
  • ‘The more a sound knowledge of law and economics decline in a society, the more radical will the decay of that society be.’
  • The ‘wars’ in Afghanistan and Iraq are bleeding us dry–literally and economically.

  • Time heals all wounds, right?  (It worked for Lincoln, why not Stalin?)

  • What do your savings account and the unicorn have in common?  Neither of them actually exist!  (The deception and fraud of fractional reserve banking.)
  • I will agree that many (most?) conspiracy theories have little basis in fact and that believing all of them betrays a sense of hyper-cynicism.  However, wouldn’t you agree that believing that NONE of them have any truth to them displays a dangerous naiveté–especially considering what we now know about the Kennedy assassinations and the Gulf of Tonkin (Non) Incident?  Here are 33 that appear to have at least some truth to them.
  • AuH2O!  His message is just as timely now as it was then.
  • How many acres does it take to grow 3,000+ pounds of food?  This family does it on 1/5th of an acre just outside of Pasadena, California!
  • Peter Schiff breaks down the latest numbers on the economy:

‘Train a child up in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.’  ~ Proverbs 22:6

 

I read an article recently that scared the Barjesus out of me:

‘In Germany, the state rather than the parents is considered to be primarily responsible for the well-being of children.’

Let that sink in for a minute.  That should frighten you to the very core of your being.  Do you think it can’t happen here?  It already is.

Stand firm.

‘They have tithed their children to the state and then they complain against how much the government is costing them.’  ~ R. J. Rushdoony
