Gee, That Went Well

Well here we are, 3 days into the new presidency and the country has gone mad. Wait, the world has gone mad. I’m 61, and I’ve never seen anything like this.

Protestors, which aren’t protestors when they don’t know what they are protesting about, are out on the streets because the democratic process of electing a president was upheld. Let that sink in.

There is nothing wrong in disliking your government. Jesus’ followers hated the government they had. They were under bondage. They were under oppression. They waited for a savior, someone to get them out from all of this. That is what they expected Jesus to do.

They wanted a revolution. Change things, and they were certain Jesus was the one that would change it all. He would restore a government for the Jews where they would rule. But that wasn’t why He came.

He paid taxes. Remember the story where He sent Peter fishing to get a coin from the fish’s mouth to pay? Or how about the time the Pharisees tried to trick Him about paying taxes, and Jesus’ response was “render unto Caesar what is Caesars and render unto God what is God’s”? (Mark 12:17)

Prior to Jesus coming to earth, there were many uprisings that were squelched by the Romans. Many times they tried to overthrow the government. But Jesus and His followers told them otherwise.

Paul said, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,“. (1 Timothy 2:1-3)

He didn’t tell them to hold up signs, break windows (if they had windows there), call names, and swear at them. He didn’t say overthrow the government, punch people, assassinate them, or belittle them.

Romans 13:1 Paul says, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

So God gives us the leaders we need. Some He uses to bless us and others to punish us. When He blesses us we thank Him, when He punishes us, we repent. The Old Testament is filled with those situations. So basically, when we fight against the government, we are fighting against God.

But people will continue to be people. They will continue to fight and all the things we shouldn’t. And that is where we rise up as a Chosen people to fight back with the best weapons that God has given us.

Pray.

With Independence Day passing, it got me to thinking and, frankly, worried.

Are you familiar with Operation Northwoods? I wasn’t either until I watched a documentary on the History Channel. It talked of The US Government’s plan in 1962 to deceive the American people by killing it’s own citizens so that the country would back a war with Cuba.

It called for the Central Intelligent Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against military targets and American citizens, and blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba. The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy Administration. it was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F Kennedy. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Northwoods) .

Can you imagine the United States planting false flags to get public backing for a war? What is a false flag? A false flag is a covert operation intended to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by groups or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.

That’s a crazy thought, isn’t it? The fact that our country would even THINK that it was morally right to attack their own citizens and blame it on another country just to get into a war is ludicrous, isn’t it? Well, apparently not.

Lately I’ve been concerned about the corruption of our government and also the corruption and deceit by the DOJ, FBI, the president, as well as the main stream media. The plan of turning the U.S. into a third world nation or a weak socialist nation like Europe is well underway. And it’s not just one party, it’s the whole system.

The fact that this idea had reached the point where it was sent to the president for approval has me thinking of what’s going on today. Corruption was evident in the 1960 election when more votes were “discovered” in Chicago, which is the center of corruption. Kennedy won narrowly. Also the voting in 2000 was all questionable.  (remember “hanging chads”?). So questions abound.

Who knew what, prior to Sept. 11, 2001? Certainly the government wouldn’t permit such an action to draw us into a ridiculous war or two in the Middle East, would they? I never used to ask that question, but now I do.

Remember, a false flag is to get public support for an action the government wants to do.  We didn’t have a reason to enter WW II as the public was not supportive, even with what was going on in Europe. My professor at PSU, Len Riforgiato, wrote a book describing how he believed that the U.S. drew Japan into bombing Pearl Harbor so that the public would support going to war.When you see how the planes were strategically lined up and how it would be impossible to move them out more than one at a time when the bombs fly. Also, there was a radio warning of planes coming and the message was never relayed. Interesting.

I can honestly say, particularly after the Hilary fiasco that they let her slide on, that I don’t trust this government. The government has purposely altered 911 calls so that the man who shot up the gay club in Orlando would not be identified as a Muslim. It wasn’t until someone filed a complaint regarding the Freedom of Information act, and the tape was played where he swore allegiance to Isis. But instead, they want to come after our guns.

How about those presidential primaries? Wasn’t it exciting to learn that your vote doesn’t even count, that the delegates can basically vote for whomever they want, whether you voted for them or not? What a wonderful democracy.

Has George Carlin been right all this time? He’s said a lot of things, and I’m thinking he was pretty right on. He said, “Governments don’t want a population capable of critical thinking. They want obedient workers, people just smart enough to run the machines and just dumb enough to passively accept their situation.”

He goes on: ” I got this real moron thing I do, it’s called thinking, and I’m not a very good American because I like to form my own opinions….I have certain rules I live by. My first rule, I don’t believe anything the government tells me….and I don’t take very seriously the media or the press in this country”.

Here’s where I’ve come to with almost 61 years of living. I will salute my flag, and I will support our troops who fight for us. I’ve realized that I love my country.

It’s the government I’m not too fond of. At all.
