Warning! Extremely toxic, may cause death if swallowed.

They create the crises and the messes, and then they offer to clean them up–for a price! Not much different from an old-fashioned extortion racket.

We are, of course, talking about the Global Governance-Great Reset-All the Money Flows to Davos crowd.  They’ll give us health and safety and equality and blind dates that turn out really nice… as long as we give them damn near all our money and all of our freedoms except the “right” to fornicate. For reasons of their own, they’ll let us keep that one.

Toward a World Government Run by Lunatics

Thank God we have our midterm elections before Davos can pull the plug on our national sovereignty. A thorough wipe-out of the Democrats ought to keep us out of the globalists’ museum of shattered nations.

And by all that’s holy, America needs to be steered well clear of the World Economic Forum… and all the rest of it.

‘Davos Wing-Ding Under Way’ (2017)

Ah, the World Economic Forum! A time for globalist golems to get together and plot against our freedom.

Davos Wing-ding Under Way

This one, of course, was pre-COVID. They hadn’t yet realized they could actually lock down the whole world’s economy–just as if the whole place were s giant prison!

They want global government so bad, they can taste it. With themselves in charge, of course. Always with themselves at the tippy-top of the pyramid.

Let’s pray that this is the year the whole woke booshwa collides with oblivion.

‘Are These People Quite All There?’ (2016)

Global government personified!

Back in 2016 globalist schmendricks like John Kerry were already touting a “borderless world.” Which is what Climate Change and King COVID are all about, in case you hadn’t noticed.

Are These People Quite All There?

Please understand this. If you get rid of all the little governments that we know as “countries,” and replace them with one big huge government that will govern the entire world… the results will be horrific. Unimagineably bad.

But then, of course, it’ll be too late to do anything about it.

Anyone who wants to give that kind of power to the likes of John Kerry has got more than a few bats in his belfry.

The Folly of Urbanization

Crowded subway car at the evening rush hour in New York City Stock ...

Hello! Wakey-wakey!

If you cram people into hyper-urbanized environments, you turn them into sitting ducks for any new germ that comes along. Especially if you take their cars away and stuff them into mass transit. That slurping sound is a hungry virus licking its lips.

Early this morning my wife saw a fox trotting up our sidewalk. You’re not supposed to see them. But their hiding places have been systematically uprooted and paved over, as the philosopher-kings labor to turn our lovely small town–not so lovely as it used to be!–into a noisy, crowded, ugly city. Gives ’em more clout within the Democrat Party, you see.

After decades of scheming and finagling for it, they’ve finally got high-rise dwellings in the middle of downtown, having gotten rid of several acres of parking space. They’ve got shills writing in to the local–ahem!–newspaper bragging about what a swell time they’re having in the high rise and how they, superior beings that they are, don’t need cars anymore and ain’t they just as cute as buttons? Their dwellings have been erected within yards of our very busy railroad tracks. How they manage with the noise is something they don’t talk about.

But make way for Agenda 21! Progress, progress!

What it looks like is a plan to first turn the towns into small cities and then connect the dots to transform all of central New Jersey into one big gigantic city. And stack all the people on top of each other, jam them together like sardines, because that’s supposed to make it easier to control them.

Hey, no problem! Mandatory universal vaccines, against every disease known to humankind–that’ll protect us. Mandatory lots of other things, too. Laws are cumbersome; mandates are cool: stroke of the pen, law of the land.

When progressives say “progress,” watch out.

Is This Woman Quite All There?

Jim Bowie must have known some unusual people in his life. Here he is with a woman who wants to hang on to his leg. If my wife did this, I would think there must be something wrong with her.

It may be that there are little-known nooks and crannies of society wherein leg-hanging is not  considered eccentric. I don’t get around that much: who knows what the big swells get up to, when they go to Davos? I’d hate to think Jim Bowie was a globalist. Then again, maybe the woman in the picture is just drunk, and with no lamp-post handy, a stationary human leg will do. And Mr. Bowie puts up with it because he’s kind.

Yeah, that’s probably it.

Macron: ‘Nationalism is Treason’

See the source image

Pop goes the weasel…

I somehow missed this dopey statement uttered by the dope who was elected president of France by a lot of other dopes.

Earlier this month, at an Armistice Day celebration in Paris–that’s one of many French cities the U.S. Army liberated from the Germans in WWII–in front of a gaggle of world leaders, French President Emmanuel Macron declared, “Nationalism is treason” (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/11/11/french-president-emanuel-macron-nationalism-is-treason/). He also said it is the opposite of patriotism. As a liberal and globalist, he thinks rooting against your own country is the only correct form of patriotism–a la John Kerry.

God gave us countries to protect us from wannabe rulers of the world. Now those wannabes, of whom Macron is just one of many, cloak themselves in globalism as they pursue their dream of a world government run by themselves.

This is a doofus who says there’s no such thing as French culture (tell that to Jacques Pepin!) and the whole idea of France is vastly overrated–and that was before he slammed his countrymen, just a couple weeks ago, with a catastrophic gasoline tax increase… To Save The Planet, of course, never mind the riots. But the French nooze media told French voters last year that this gonk was a cozy, comfy “centrist” and they could all sleep soundly with him running the show.

Lesson: Never trust any politician the nooze media praise as a “centrist.”

Meanwhile–nationalism over global government every time, everywhere. I mean, come on, these schmendricks can’t even govern a city without ruining it, let alone the whole blamed world at once.

Babel: God’s Wisdom and Mercy

Image result for images of tower of babel

When men a few generations removed from the Great Flood sought to build a tower that would reach to Heaven–the story is told in Genesis 11–God came down and confounded their language. Unable to communicate with each other, they gave up their building project and dispersed throughout the earth, eventually growing into various nations, each with its own language.

We are in the habit of viewing God’s actions toward the builders of Babel as a judgment and a punishment. A judgment it certainly was; but I’ve come to think of it not as a punishment, but as a mercy devised by His wisdom.

Take into account man’s inherent sinfulness, his natural bent for folly, and his high opinion of himself–and then factor in God allowing the Tower to be built and not confounding their language. I mean, really, they hadn’t learned their lesson from the Flood, and God had promised not to wipe them out again–but what if He had let them alone?

What could be more dreadful, than for God to leave us to our own devices?

Since the start of history, conquerors have tried to be masters of the world, creating bigger and bigger empires as their means for mischief grew. Today this has evolved into Globalism: all that “citizen of the world” claptrap from the 1930s is alive and well today. And doing as much harm as it possibly can.

The motive remains the same: domination of others. From Alexander the Great to the cocktail crowd at Davos is only a difference in methodology. Alexander had the Macedonian phalanx to crush nations under his feet. Globalists have Climate Change, and the “news” media.

Imagine how much easier this satanic scheme would be to carry out, had God not scattered the human race at Babel. Imagine how instantaneously culture rot could set in, anywhere in the world, if we were all of one language.

What God did at Babel was a way of protecting us from those of our race who would devour us. There is no doubt in my mind that among Satan’s fondest dreams is world government, over which he would rule as prince–probably behind the scenes: he likes it in the dark. And world government would devour us.

Alexander, Caesar, communism, Nazism, the United Nations, this foundation, that foundation–they were all about world government, and that’s what they’re all about today. That’s what “open borders” is: an attempt to undo what God did on the plain of Shinar, thousands of years ago.

A few of you keep telling me that the purpose of all the abominable lunacies of this era is to force us to declare who’s side we’re on, God’s or the devil’s.

I’m beginning to think you’re right.

A Truly Prolific Murderer

When Tamerlane, aka Timur, died, he had inscribed on his tomb, “When I rise from the dead, the world shall tremble.”

Tamerlane died in 1405, by which time he had succeeded in killing some 17 million people in Central Asia, the Middle East, India, and China–about 5% of the people on the planet at the time. Well, you can’t re-create Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire without breaking a few million eggs. That Tamerlane’s methods included what we would call extreme sadism did not seem to diminish his luster as “the Sword of Islam.” In fact, he’s venerated today throughout the Central Asian Muslim world–although the descendants of Muslims in other countries that he ravaged are somewhat less than nostalgic for him.

It is a dynamic of history that from time to time a conqueror rises up and tries to devour the human race. Alexander the Great, Pyrrhus, Genghis Khan, Hitler, Tamerlane–and we’re only counting the ones who actually got somewhere. Maybe Napoleon has the excuse that his wars might be called exigencies of self-defense: although that excuse wouldn’t have seemed too convincing while he was burning Moscow.

Dynamics of history don’t go away. People wish they’d go away, people think they’ve gone away: but they remain. Unless history itself ends, somewhere in the future is another Tamerlane. Meanwhile, we have to be content with the present globalist movement–they, too, want to rule the world, but their methods are much subtler than Tamerlane’s.

But there is only One Person who has the right to that throne: Jesus Christ, the Son of God. All the others are usurpers.

 

‘Should We All Speak Esperanto?’ (2012)

I admit that the fans of Esperanto who reply to this blog post aren’t half-bad at making their case for it. I tip my hat to them. And I strongly agree with their position that obscure little minority languages ought to be preserved.

But I remain convinced that the whole Esperanto project is a bad idea. We once had a common language and God took it away. We’ll have one again when He decides it’s right. Until then, I think we should oppose anything but the lordship of Jesus Christ as a basis for uniting nations.

A ‘Christian Spy Thriller’–by Agatha Christie

Image result for images of they came to baghdad

Agatha Christie was one of the most successful novelists ever, but we don’t generally think of her books as offering any identifiable Christian content. True, her two most famous detective characters, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, were solidly Christian. Poirot was a Roman Catholic, and Miss Marple always read her devotionals before getting out of bed in the morning. To most Christie fans, that’s about the long and the short of it, as far as Christian content goes.

Neither Poirot nor Marple appears in They Came to Baghdad–a spy thriller, not a detective story, published in 1951. Underlying this book is a surprisingly firm Christian foundation: not what anybody expects from a cloak and dagger job.

The plot concerns a secret superpower summit to be held in Baghdad, and the effort by British intelligence to foil a plan to turn the conference into a catastrophe–maybe even a new world war. And the success or failure of the intelligence campaign winds up depending on Victoria Jones, an unemployed typist with a gift for coming up with amazingly convincing and creative lies at short notice.

The bad guys are identified only as a shadowy organization, global in its scope and resources, neither communist nor capitalist, committed to manipulating the free world and the communist bloc into a mutually fatal showdown.

Here’s how Victoria’s mentor explains it to her.

“What they want is, I fear, the betterment of the world! The delusion that by force you can impose the Millenium on the human race is one of the most dangerous delusions in existence. Those who are out only to line their own pockets can do little harm–mere greed defeats its own ends. But the belief in a superstratum of human beings–in Supermen to rule the rest of the decadent world–that, Victoria, is the most evil of all beliefs. For when you say, ‘I am not as other men’–you have lost the two most valuable qualities we have ever tried to attain: humility and brotherhood.”

Coming out with that in 1951–wow!

Later on, Victoria reflects: “You get mad, perhaps, if you try and act the part of God. They always say humility is a Christian virtue–now I see why. Humility is what keeps you sane and a human being..”

Or, as the Bible puts it, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:5-8).

Our original temptation, provided by the Devil, was “ye shall be as gods, knowing [deciding for themselves] good and evil” (Genesis 3:5).

Have we ever been given a more accurate description of the humanist mind-set?

Hey, everybody–try this book. There’s a lot more to Agatha Christie than you thought.
