Sorry folks; very busy today and there will be little - or nothing - for today's blog. Check back tomorrow when I should be in better shape.

Here is a voter suppression/fraud case going to the Supreme Court.
From the EIN News:
Shortly after Burk retrieved the shredded ballots Arizona Republican Senate Majority Whip, Sonny Borrelli, contacted her. During the heated conversation, Borrelli criticized much of the Arizona state government for being: untrustworthy, capable of destroying the evidence, and said Burk would be killed if she didn't turn over the ballots to him if the police didn't get to her. An audio recording between Burk and Borrelli was published in the Arizona Mirror. In that recording, Senator Borelli "repeatedly advised Staci Burk. . . that she is in danger because she held the "domino” that would overturn the resultsof the presidential election. Don’t trust anyone, he said while urging her to give him the ballots. This is the domino. This is the one domino (that) Arizona knocks over and we expose this corruption then the other states fall, too."
As a result of threats for her safety, Burk asked the SCOTUS this week to take possession of the shredded ballots and sanction Maricopa County for destroying evidence in the pending case. She said the shredded ballots and mutilated documents in the tabulation center dumpster, along with the large fire at one of the Defendant County Board of Supervisor's farm, demonstrate evidence that the County is likely destroying evidence vital to the case. Burk argued to the SCOTUS that Sonny Borelli said, no one at the legislature or Attorney General's office can be trusted with the shredded ballots. She also points out that in 2018, the Arizona legislature voted unanimously to pass SB1452 removing ballot stubs and other election security measures. The majority-Republican Arizona legislature failed to safeguard the 2020 election by creating the context for widespread voter suppression and intentionally removing election security measures that could identify fraud on a later audit.
On the Chauvin trial:
The Left succeeded in stealing an election last year; now they might have succeeded in stealing a jury.
Blacks in America represent at least ten percent of the U.S. economy. That is 2.5 trillion dollars. That is more than the annual economic output of ANY African nation. So... where is the "oppression," again?
It's a strange kind of oppression where the oppressors have laws that give preferential treatment to the oppressed in government hiring, in granting scholarships and acceptance into higher education, that give preferences to the oppressed in handing out government contracts, small business loans, etc. It's a wierd form of oppression that lets the oppressed possess firearms and allows them to run amok with them in the big cities unchecked. It's a strange oppression that grants the oppressed the vote and in fact lets them not even present an I.D. to cast a ballot. Why, it's almost as if it's not oppression at all. In fact, one can argue it's actually privilege.
When Republicans are in power they refuse it out of fear of setting "precedents" when Democrats come to power. When Democrats are in power they abuse it because propriety, the law, and the Constitution are not their concern.
From Willis Eschenbach:
With Derek Chauvin's trial approaching next week, as a reminder, George Floyd's autopsy did NOT show several things:
• No petechiae, indicating no strangulation.
• No visible or hidden trauma to the neck, shoulders, face, or larynx, indicating no excess pressure or blows to those areas.
• No scalp, skull, or brain injuries.
• No chest, rib, spine, or viscera injuries.
However, it DID show several other things.
• Positive COVID test
• A high, perhaps lethal level of fentanyl, the most potent of the opiates.
• A level of 65 ng/mL of 4-ANPP, an indication of a fentanyl overdose.
• Cotenine (a tobacco metabolite)
Now, if the officer in question was black and the dead person was white, this wouldn't even be a question. We have a dead man with COVID who smoked both cigarettes and marijuana, took meth, and was a junkie with high levels of fentanyl in his blood. What was surprising was not that he was dead. It was that he was still walking around,
But the BurnLootMurder folks, the Pantie Fascists, and the Democrats who support them don't care about the facts. Far too many of them want vengeance, not justice.
Was this "systemic racism"? I wondered about that myself, so I did the research. I found out that in Minneapolis where George Floyd died, the Mayor, the Chief of Police, the Deputy Chief of Police, and 22% of the cops are black, while the city is 18% black ... sorry, not systemic racism.
So we'll see what happens in the Chauvin trial. I fear that unless he is sentenced to be drawn and quartered in the public square we'll see even more of the rioting, church burning, and general violence that the Democrats enabled, encouraged and supported over the last nine months.
I gotta say, I give huge props to anyone putting on a police uniform these days and going out to keep violence and crime at bay ... my profound thanks to all those who guard the gates so the rest of us can sleep easy in our beds.
The former Soviet Union was a gigantic attempt to internationaliz
Different nations and people groups and/
In spite of the present growing madness to internationaliz
What is not well understood even by prophecy teachers is this push and pull between internationalis
In light of such history since the Tower of Babel, it thus should not
be surprising that Jesus specifically teaches in the Olivet Discourse,
which predicts what is otherwise known as the Great Tribulation
everywhere warned of throughout the the Old Testament, that "Nation
will rise up against nation." The Apostle John then tells us even the
Antichrist with all of his demonic authority and powers will still have
a very difficult time through lots of warfare to take complete control
of the world - and then when he finally does, wars will still continue,
and his absolute reign of terror will be at most for 3 1/
Such will be our great themes for the
next few weeks as we have begun teaching the book of Revelation in
Yerevan now for Dr. Ron Minton's International Baptist Bible College
(IBBC). IBBC college modules meet usually 3-4 times a year in a number
of locations in the former Soviet Union. It provides very fertile
opportunities to practice what many have called "cross-cultural
Furthermore, the apostle Paul tells us how to accomplish all this in 1st Corinthians 9:19-23 using grace and liberty to do so, "Though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more. To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law, as under the Law though not being myself under the Law, so that I might win those who are under the Law; to those who are without law, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some. I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it." In other words, contrary to popular opinion, grace and liberty are not a license to sin that all so many typically denigrate both for like a knee-jerk reaction, whether religiously or politically. On the contrary, grace and liberty are to be used for service. In other words, love that is not voluntary does not usually come across too well (Galatians 5:13-14).
I would even strongly venture to say the primary reason why service is
now being limited these days is largely because all too many, including
all too many of God's own people, have turned their backs on grace and
liberty. What does a world look like without grace and liberty? Well,
take a look around these days and open your eyes and take a good hard
look at where we are at as we have entered into the realm of what can
easily be characterized as bio-security. Biopolitics was big politics
in fascist yesteryear under the banner of National Socialism. I assume
that eco-security is next on the list from what I can see, and is
actually the bigger prize as far as our world elites are concerned. It
looks like bio-security will be used to accomplish eco-security?
Converging biopolitics with political ecology is a pipe dream that has
not been seriously attempted since the National Socialists combined
eugenics with sustainable development and environmentalis
We live in such serious times and have been left completely exposed to
a plethora of so many dangers on the horizon religiously, politically,
economically, socially, and psychologically
Because Long Beach politicians are short on common sense, not to mention common decency, their constituents are now closer to living in a "food desert.” At issue is the closure of two of the California city’s major grocery stores as the result of policy reflecting the AOC School of Economics.
You know I have for a long time warned that the Left is engaging in the control of food - of food production, and distrinution - for political ends. They drew lessons from the "hydraulic empire" theory (which argued that China and Egypt and some other totalitarian systems derived their power from their control of water which gave them control of agriculture. If people got uppity they went thirsty and hungry.) This particular incident may not be pre-planned but it works within the template of this effort to control food. When the stores are all gone you have to turn to government for your daily bread. Couple this with the destruction of private farming through environmentalism and monetary manipulation and you can pretty much make people do what you wish.
The Left is applying the principle: If you can’t get the people to change the government, change the people. Or, as Alan Keyes once put it, "We're being colonized."

From November 2020:
"Top pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson told Canadian government officials
in Alberta during a phone conference that the coronavirus pandemic is
"the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”
Hodkinson, who is the CEO of a biotech company that sells COVID tests,
says "There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media
and politicians.” We are seeing "politics playing medicine, and that’s
a very dangerous game.”
Positive test results do not mean a clinical infection, he says. All testing should stop because the false numbers they produce are "driving public hysteria.” Hodkinson says the risk of death for people under the age of 65 is "one in three-hundred thousand” and it is "outrageous” to shut down society for what is merely "just another bad flu.” 2020 November"
The whole thing has been a scam to induce public fear. Laws and conventions have been overturned without debate in parliament and they'll never be rescinded. Instead, they'll be repurposed to bolster the states power over the individual.
PCR tests are not for diagnosis, they never were, but compliant 'Scientists' who promote 'The Science' were wheeled out by governments, whilst the dissenting voices of tens of thousands of medical and scientific professionals were ignored. Those professionals were ridiculed, maligned and silenced with the assistance of the rabidly left wing Legacy and Social media.
A CNN Boss has gloated over the misinformation they have succeeded in disseminating, and once it's over, has expressed the organisations intention to target Climate Change as their next target to hoodwink the public with, simply to maintain CNN's position as a 'News' broadcaster.
"All men recognize the right of revolution; that is, the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable.”

21. Their pension for life is 80% of last pay.
22. Republican head count in the City Council is ZERO.
23, William Hale Thompson was the last Republican Mayor of Chicago in1931.
24. Of 2,240 Shootings, 97.7% of the shooters were black however BLM, ANTIFA and the democrats assign blame to law enforcement and "systemic racism."
25. At the end of fiscal 2019 Chicago's deficit was $838,200,000!
Is that all a result of "systemic racism"?
Maxine Waters, Congresswoman, flew from DC to Minneapolis to encourage an angry mob to be more "confrontationa
The Defense moved for a mistrial as a result of this and acts of prosecutorial malfeasance but the judge dismissed the motions. They got it in the record though for an appeal. The judge tried to say that he instructed the jurors to not listen to anything like this so it made it all better! The fact is this IS jury tampering and this woman should be charged with that.

"The philosophy of the classroom today will be the philosophy of government tomorrow,” informs the apocryphal quotation. This saying gets at a serious issue and, finally, a politician is taking it seriously.
In fact, North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson, a Republican, has created a task force to tackle the left-wing philosophies (aka propaganda) pervading today’s government schools.https://www.selwynduke.com/2021/04/north-carolina-creates-task-force-to-combat-left-wing-ideologies-in-public-schools.html
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Rep. Maxine Waters over comments she made "inciting violence," vowing to take matters into his own hands if she doesn’t.
"Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past,” McCarthy said in a statement. "If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.”
END OF QUOTE
Now I'm sure many of our readers know of dumb teenage kids that do dumb things, including themselves in past decades. I recall one event that I saw at the end of an NHL game in Madison Square Garden decades ago. Hockey games draw some aggressive fans but this was just plain dumb. I was not the dumb kid.
The NY Rangers were in the last five minutes of losing to an NHL team that no longer exists, the California Seals. People were leaving their seats making their way down the stairs to the exit ramps and also standing in aisles. A huge man around six feet four was standing in an aisle blocking the view of teenage boy who looked like he weighed 140 pounds. The boy asked the man to move. When the big man didn't, the kid smacked him in the shoulder. The man just turned around and looked at the small kid and went back to watching the last two minutes of the game. The boy calmed down and did nothing else.
So teenagers will try all kinds of things to learn what they can do to look like a big man, even if they are incredibly dumb. Some of you may have heard of the teen movie "Varsity Blues" where some teen actors were filmed lying down on the center line of a two lane road as cars (driven by professional stunt drivers) drove by them, perhaps very slowly with the film later speeded up to make the feat seem more daring. It will surprise few of you readers when I now say that some teens in real life on real streets tried this trick and got killed by drivers.
So when Maxine Waters urges young people to riot, she is risking their lives but not her own. And also risking the lives and property of people who own businesses who just might take their fire insurance money later on and move out of town or out of the state. Even if the riot is some wealthy neighborhood, I would bet the former store owners hired young teens of all ethnic groups to be cashiers and stock clerks. So now Maxine can complain that no young blacks can get jobs in that riot area as she advocates raising taxes.
But you can't raise taxes on someone who no longer pays taxes in that town. But Maxine Waters is all about wanting more power and a show of force. As as the old politically incorrect joke says, Maxine is opening a chain of empty stores. And if the riot occurs in a minority neighborhood, she is doing the Klan's work for them, things that the Klu Klux Klan never dreamed tey could have gotten away with decades ago or now.
I see that my liberal friends who falsely claimed that President Trump "incited violence" are totally quiet about Maxine Waters threatening the jury and calling for riots if Derek Chauvin isn't convicted ... and the Republicans except for Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene are just as quiet.
Gotta say, I wish the rest of the Republicans had the stones that Rep. Marjorie has ... she said:
”I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence.
Rep. Waters is a danger to our society.
After traveling across state lines to incite riots, her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to more violence and a drive by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning.
As a sitting United States Congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power.
Rep. Maxine Waters must be expelled from Congress!”
Threatening a jury and DEMANDING riots if the court doesn't rule the way she wants? That's 100% inciting violence.Tim adds:
A guy named Terrence Williams was live-streaming on Facebook. Zuckerberg's minions cut the feed.
In a discussion about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln Richard Cronin made the following observation:
Lincoln introduced the Greenback to get out from under the British pound and the Bank of England.
Jack Kennedy introduced the Treasury note to get out of currency & credit control by the Federal Reserve.
See the common thread ? Screwing with the Central Bank.
I've posted this link before but it bears repeating. It's about the way the Covid vaccines can change our genetic coding. It's not written by Robert Kennedy or some such either, but rather by Dr. Ken Biegeleisen, a well-respected virologist.
It's pretty technical, but do read the whole thing.
I'm not surprised. The imposition of gun control in a lot of countries had zero impact on gun crimes. Brazil has some of the strictes gun laws in the world and their gun crime levels were not effected.
California’s Background Check Law Had No Impact on Gun Deaths, Johns Hopkins Study Finds
In 1991, California simultaneously imposed comprehensive background checks for firearm sales and prohibited gun sales (and gun possession) to people convicted of misdemeanor violent crimes. The legislation mandated that all gun sales, including private transactions, would have to go through a California-licensed Federal Firearms License (FFL) dealer. Shotguns and rifles, like handguns, became subject to a 15-day waiting period to make certain all gun purchasers had undergone a thorough background check.
More than a quarter of a century later, researchers at Johns Hopkins and UC Davis dug into the results of the sweeping legislation.
It was the most expansive state gun control legislation in America, affecting an estimatedone million gun buyers in the first year alone. Though costly and cumbersome, politicians and law enforcement agreed the law was worth it.
The legislation would "keep more guns out of the hands of the people who shouldn’t have them,” said then-Republican Gov. George Deukmejian.
"I think the new laws are going to help counter the violence,” said LAPD spokesman William D. Booth.
More than a quarter of a century later, researchers at Johns Hopkins and UC Davis dug into the results of the sweeping legislation. Researchers compared yearly gun suicide and homicide rates over the 10 years following implementation of California’s law with 32 control states that did not have such laws.
They found "no change in the rates of either cause of death from firearms through 2000.”Gee; whoda thunk it?
Legal guns are not and never have been the problem. The Left knows it too. They push for this for other reasons.
Here is an interesting discussion about the Adam and Eve story in the Book of Genesis.
Bob Clasen says:
Thoughts on "Original Sin”
Is there any truth to the Adam and Eve myth?
We evolved (or were created) by an evolutionary process of millions of years. During that process, we competed for scarce resources with warring tribes and large carnivores. We also competed with fellow humans for desirable mates and for success on the dominance hierarchy.
This is not a background to encourage the development of peaceful angels or self sacrificing martyrs. Everyone is born with these evolutionary instincts.
In this sense, I believe there is realistic truth in the Original Sin myth. Humans are not born sweet and loving and self sacrificing. We are evolved to compete for scarce resources and mates and to struggle to rise on our dominance hierarchy. We are the last in a long list of ancestors whose one shared characteristic is that they survived AND reproduced.
If you call the Adam and Eve story a myth, perhaps you've already determined whether it's true or not.
Bob Clasen adds:
A myth is a story that has real meaning but which is not necessarily literally true. Stories that have lasted for thousands and thousands of years last for a reason. They signify something important. The Tree of Life. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Modern critics say it is not fair to punish children for the sins of an ancestor (except for Black Lives Matter) but that is taking the story literally. Isn’t it interesting that the very first human disobeyed and and sinned, after he ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil? Setting aside the question of whether it is literally true what does this mean? See Jung, Joseph Campbell and Jordan Peterson, to name just a few.
Yes I understand the concept that myth has different meanings other than the regular one of not being literally true. What I find fascinating about the Genesis story of Adam and Eve is that even the literal understanding of this story is missed by many people. Recently, I've read the story taking pen and paper, reading it word for word, and using a Hebrew lexicon to find the what the words actually mean in Hebrew. It's quite interesting indeed. more...
