Another Satanic Display In America

Members of the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple have erected a satanic display which they call a "snaketivity scene" on the capitol lawn in Lansing, MI:



I do not believe that Jesus has anything to do with "Christmas", which is a pagan festival related to the Winter Solstice:

In a way, it is more appropriate for this "snaketivity scene" to be present in MI than the more traditional (but mostly fictional) Christmas nativity scene. Jesus came into this world to bring us the truth. Anything which detracts from His authenticity (including the way we celebrate "Christmas") cheapens His gospel.

To the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple, I say this: Your statement "the greatest gift is knowledge" is quite misleading. Perhaps you should actually read the Bible before you criticize it:

And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Genesis 2:9 KJV

It's not the "tree of knowledge" ... it's the "tree of knowledge of good and evil". It has nothing to do with knowledge per se, but everything to do with rebelling against and challenging G-d.

If Satan's greatest "gift" to you is something which makes you an enemy of G-d, what kind of gift is that?

Argentine Court Recognizes Animal Rights

A court in Argentina has ruled that a captive orangutan has the human right to freedom:

Now if only US courts would rule that Argentinians have the right to be free from Paul Singer ...

Questions For Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's son was mugged in front of their home last Friday night:

Emanuel’s 17-year-old son went out to make a phone call when he was jumped by two men who stole the teen’s cell phone.

Police officers are assigned to the mayor’s home front and back 24 hours a day. There are also cameras at both ends of the block.

Some questions for the mayor:

(1) Where were the police guards?

(2) Why does your son have to leave the house to make a phone call? What's he hiding from you and your wife?

Who We Really Are

Terrible findings in the torture report “are not who we are,” John Kerry claims. Well, here’s a U.S. history lesson:

Thomas Jefferson, for instance, may have agonized over the evil of slavery, usually in private, but then he also reputedly raped a 15-year-old he owned and, according to the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, paid $70 just so he could have a runaway slave he had already sold off to someone else “severely flogged in the presence of his old companions.” At least once, Jefferson even“ordered the destruction of all dogs belonging to his slaves,” according to researcher Mary V. Thompson. “At least one of the condemned dogs was hung as a disciplinary warning.”

Yes, we and our so-called heros really ARE that evil. But the truly astonishing aspect of this is that we can find each and every "evil" in our adversaries while not recognizing any of ours:


And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Luke 6:41 KJV

Education Thoughts For The Day

Any conditions that compel the teacher to take note of failures rather than of healthy growth give false standards and result in distortion and perversion.
John Dewey

School failed me, and I failed the school. It bored me. The teachers behaved like Feldwebel (sergeants). I wanted to learn what I wanted to know, but they wanted me to learn for the exam.

There Is Hope In Understanding

As I have stated previously, anyone with half a brain should be able to see that we are living in the greatest debt bubble in human history.  Anyone with half a brain should be able to see that the “too big to fail” banks are being extraordinarily reckless (derivatives, etc.).  Anyone with half a brain should be able to see that our formerly great manufacturing cities are being transformed into crime-infested hellholes.  Anyone with half a brain should be able to see that the middle class is dying.  Anyone with half a brain should be able to see that the exact same patterns that led up to the great financial crisis of 2008 are happening again.  Anyone with half a brain should be able to see that we simply cannot consume far more wealth than we produce as a nation indefinitely.  Anyone with half a brain should be able to see that the incredibly foolish decisions that our politicians have been making for decades have placed us on a road to utter disaster.

So it doesn’t take anyone special to do what I am doing.  I am just a “watchman on the wall” sounding the alarm the best that I can.  And there are lots of others that are doing the same thing.  We are deeply concerned about where this nation is heading, and we have been pleading with our leaders to do something about it for a long time but they have not listened to us.

Since our leaders just continue doing “business as usual”, there is not going to be a solution to our problems on the national level.

So that is why I am encouraging people to get prepared for the hard times that are coming on a family level and a community level.

In the end, each one of us needs to make the decisions that we feel are best for our own families.

So that is why it is so incredibly important not to let someone else do your thinking for you.

In America today, the average person watches 153 hours of television a month.  In addition to that, we also spend countless hours watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, reading books and surfing the Internet.

What most Americans don’t realize is that there are just six giant corporations that control almost all of that content, and that makes them immensely powerful.

These giant media corporations are constantly manipulating our attitudes, opinions and beliefs.  And at this point most Americans seem quite content to remain “plugged into the matrix” and to allow corrupt corporate executives somewhere to do their thinking for them.

I urge you to break free from that system.

Do your own research and do your own thinking.

Don’t take what I say or what anyone else says as truth without critically examining it yourself.  This can be difficult at first, because in this nation our young people are no longer trained to think critically.  Instead, we are trained to just blindly accept whatever information the system feeds us.

George Orwell once said that “during times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act“.

That perfectly describes the era that we are currently living in.

The truth does not bring fear and despair.

Rather, the truth brings hope and it sets people free.

Share the truth with as many people as you can, because we live in a world that desperately needs it.
