They can’t even say the word

Easter worshippers.  They can’t even call them Christians.  Easter worshippers.

Compare how Obama and Hillary treat the horrible Sri Lanka Easter attacks to that of the New Zealand shooting.

One could look at this as more proof that evil exists and the only counter to evil is Christianity.  These worshippers of Satan can’t even say the word.

Christianophobia will never become a thing.  Muslims will never be called out when they attack Christians.  Look at how they used the New Zealand shooting to a – defend Islam, b – push an anti-gun agenda, and c – attack white people.  They don’t even try hiding their blatant hate for Christianity anymore.  And any time they can pin something bad on whites they will do so.  Yes Hillary, “white supremacist terrorists” and their “murderous hatred” are the real problem here.  Right.  Why aren’t you using similar language for the suicide bombers who killed at least 4 times as many Christians and injured hundreds more?

Christians massacred on Easter

Christ is risen!  As hard as they want to try, they cannot take away His ultimate victory.  Sadly, more than 200 Christian lives were taken and hundreds injured in attacks on several Christian churches and a few hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

More than 200 people were killed and hundreds more hospitalized from injuries after a series of blasts devastated three churches and three luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

The targets were Catholic worshippers attending Easter Mass and guests at high-end hotels popular with foreign tourists.

Two of the blasts were suspected to have been suicide bomber attacks, according to one official who spoke to the Associated Press (AP) on condition of anonymity.

Reports now indicate a seventh explosion in the Sri Lankan capital has killed two people. Police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said the blast hit a hotel in the southern Colombo suburb of Dehiwala.

Worshippers and hotel guests were among the fatalities, the official said, in the biggest violence in the South Asian country since its civil war ended a decade ago. Nine foreigners were among the dead, officials confirmed.

The three hotels hit were the Shangri-La Colombo, Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo and the Cinnamon Grand Colombo.

In just one church, St. Sebastian’s in Katuwapitiya, north of the Sri Lankan capital, more than 50 people were killed, a police official told Reuters, with pictures showing bodies on the ground, blood on the pews and a destroyed roof.

The war against Christianity has escalated recently.  And make no mistake about it this is a war.  This is the second high profile blatant attack against Christians during the holiest week of the Christian calendar.

Christians need to wake up.  Many are awake, and more awakening, but on the whole some of the larger institutions (many being converged) are not viewing this as seriously as they should be.

As always, the mainstream media is doing a full court press to downplay any potential terrorist attacks.  While pretty much all signs point to a Muslim attack or a deep state false flag, that is never their story.  Compare the coverage of the New Zealand shooting to these attacks against Christians and their institutions.  The response from New Zealand has been a gun grab and more BS about toleration.  Have you heard any MSM criticism or allusion to Islam?  Will Christianophobia ever become a thing like Islamophobia?  Of course not.

Pray for the victims and their families.  Christians around the world need to band together and start to get serious about attacks against them.  People are waking up.  The pendulum is swinging back.  This just pushes the inevitable response that much closer.

The Fate of Empires

Sir John Glubb’s The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival is an essay well worth reading.  It can be found in its entirety here.  Empires rise and fall.  It appears that we are in the early stages of the downfall period of America’s current reign.  One does not choose which time period they are a part of but that doesn’t mean we cannot learn, prepare, and still thrive even during a downfall.  There is always a place for optimism.  And that is yet another one of Christianity’s great gifts; it always provides hope.

I Learning from history
‘The only thing we learn from history,’ it has been said, ‘is that men never learn from history’, a sweeping generalisation perhaps, but one which the chaos in the world today goes far to confirm. What then can be the reason why, in a society which claims to probe every problem, the bases of history are still so completely unknown?

Several reasons for the futility of our historical studies may be suggested.

First, our historical work is limited to short periods—the history of our own country, or that of some past age which, for some reason, we hold in respect.

Second, even within these short periods, the slant we give to our narrative is governed by our own vanity rather than by objectivity. If we are considering the history of our own country, we write at length of the periods when our ancestors were prosperous and victorious, but we pass quickly over their shortcomings or their defeats. Our people are represented as patriotic heroes, their enemies as grasping imperialists, or subversive rebels. In other words, our national histories are propaganda, not well- balanced investigations.

Third, in the sphere of world history, we study certain short, usually unconnected, periods, which fashion at certain epochs has made popular.  Greece 500 years before Christ, and the Roman Republic and early Roman Empire are cases in point.  The intervals between the ‘great periods’ are neglected.  Recently Greece and Rome have become largely discredited, and history tends to become increasingly and parochial history of our own countries.

 

To derive any useful instruction from history, it seems to me essential first of all to grasp the principle that history, to be meaningful, must be the history of the human race. For history is a continuous process, gradually developing, changing and turning back, but in general moving forward in a single mighty stream. Any useful lessons to be derived must be learned by the study of the whole flow of human development, not by the selection of short periods here and there in one country or another.

Every age and culture is derived from its predecessors, adds some contribution of its own, and passes it on to its successors. If we boycott various periods of history, the origins of the new cultures which succeeded them cannot be explained.

Physical science has expanded its knowledge by building on the work of its predecessors, and by making millions of careful experiments, the results of which are meticulously recorded. Such methods have not yet been employed in the study of world history. Our piecemeal historical work is still mainly dominated by emotion and prejudice.

II The lives of empires
If we desire to ascertain the laws which govern the rise and fall of empires, the obvious course is to investigate the imperial experiments recorded in history, and to endeavour to deduce from them any lessons which seem to be applicable to them all.

The word ‘empire’, by association with the British Empire, is visualised by some people as an organisation consisting of a home- country in Europe and ‘colonies’ in other continents. In this essay, the term ‘empire’ is used to signify a great power, often called today a superpower. Most of the empires in history have been large landblocks, almost without overseas possessions.

We possess a considerable amount of information on many empires recorded in history, and of their vicissitudes and the lengths of their lives, for example:

Empires.png

This list calls for certain comments.
(1) The present writer is exploring the facts, not trying to prove anything. The dates given are largely arbitrary. Empires do not usually begin or end on a certain date. There is normally a gradual period of expansion and then a period of decline. The resemblance in the duration of these great powers may be queried. Human affairs are subject to many chances, and it is not to be expected that they could be calculated with mathematical accuracy.

(2) Nevertheless, it is suggested that there is sufficient resemblance between the life periods of these different empires to justify further study.

(3) The division of Rome into two periods may be thought unwarranted. The first, or republican, period dates from the time when Rome became the mistress of Italy, and ends with the accession of Augustus. The imperial period extends from the accession of Augustus to the death of Marcus Aurelius. It is true that the empire survived nominally for more than a century after this date, but it did so in constant confusion, rebellions, civil wars and barbarian invasions.

(4) Not all empires endured for their full life- span. The Babylonian Empire of Nebucha- dnezzar, for example, was overthrown by Cyrus, after a life duration of only some seventy-four years.

(5) An interesting deduction from the figures seems to be that the duration of empires does not depend on the speed of travel or the nature of weapons. The Assyrians marched on foot and fought with spears and bow and arrows. The British used artillery, railways and ocean-going ships. Yet the two empires lasted for approximately the same periods.

There is a tendency nowadays to say that this is the jet-age, and consequently there is nothing for us to learn from past empires. Such an attitude seems to be erroneous.

(6) It is tempting to compare the lives of empires with those of human beings. We may choose a figure and say that the average life of a human being is seventy years. Not all human beings live exactly seventy years. Some die in infancy, others are killed in accidents in middle life, some survive to the age of eighty or ninety. Nevertheless, in spite of such exceptions, we are justified in saying that seventy years is a fair estimate of the average person’s expectation of life.

(7) We may perhaps at this stage be allowed to draw certain conclusions:

(a) In spite of the accidents of fortune, and the apparent circumstances of the human race at different epochs, the periods of duration of different empires at varied epochs show a remarkable similarity.

(b) Immense changes in the technology of transport or in methods of warfare do not seem to affect the life-expectation of an empire.

(c) The changes in the technology of trans- port and of war have, however, affected the shape of empires. The Assyrians, marching on foot, could only conquer their neigh- bours, who were accessible by land—the Medes, the Babylonians, the Persians and the Egyptians.

The British, making use of ocean-going ships, conquered many countries and sub- continents, which were accessible to them by water—North America, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand—but they never succeeded in conquering their neighbours, France, Germany and Spain.

But, although the shapes of the Assyrian and the British Empires were entirely different, both lasted about the same length of time.

 

I may be wrong, but I’m not lying

Props to Owen Benjamin for coining that phrase.

One of the principal aims of this site is to pursue truth; to ask hard questions often involving uncomfortable topics for some people.  Asking the question does not necessarily mean I agree with the potential outcome, though some people may jump to that conclusion.  But it serves as a good reminder now and then.  I am trying to do as Jesus preached, to let my yes be yes and my no be no.  Sometimes I may post something that turns out to be wrong.  Or perhaps I say something that is incorrect.  In my heart deep down I know I am trying to honestly pursue and profess the truth.  So while I may not always be right, I can honestly say I am not lying when I post what I post.  Something to always keep in mind.

De Blasio vows to sue if President Trump sends illegals to NYC

It shocks me that anyone takes these people seriously.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to sue the Trump administration if it sends illegal immigrants to New York City, a “sanctuary city.”

“It’s illegal. It is just plain illegal. We will meet him in court. We will beat him in court,” de Blasio said, according to the New York Post.

President Trump on Monday tweeted, “Those Illegal Immigrants who can no longer be legally held (Congress must fix the laws and loopholes) will be, subject to Homeland Security, given to Sanctuary Cities and States”:

“It’s just plain illegal.”  Kinda like the people coming to our country in the first place, Bill?  I cannot stand traitorous worms like this guy.  They will virtue signal all day to have these people come in but the minute it is anywhere near them they try and use the very defense we have been screaming about all along.

I seriously want no part of anybody who reads this and agrees with de Blasio but also supports sanctuary policies.  Split the country up and build a 100 foot wall between those who want to live in a globalist shithole and the rest of us.  Let’s start a Christian nation out of the remnants of what was the United States.  I cannot stand this level of hypocrisy.  Be a man.  Live by the standard you try and foist onto other people.  Let your yes be yes and your no be no.

These are the kind of swamp creature scum that need to be thrown out of public office.  He is advocating for f’ing up the rest of the country while simultaneously keeping the illegals he is championing far away from his city.  Sick.  Evil.  All of these globalists are talking about how illegal and wrong it is to do what Trump wants to do with absolutely zero explanation of what they mean by that.  Could some non-cucked reporter please ask these people why they think it’s evil or illegal or whatever when they openly advocate for their own sanctuary city status.  Are there any real journalists left aside from Assange and a few others?  They are contradicting themselves to the world and nobody is calling them out on it at all.

Bach – Mass in B Minor performed in Notre Dame de Paris

One of music’s greatest achievements played in one of the West’s most prized locations.  Christianity inspired both.  Here’s one way the piece was described:

The Mass was described in the 19th century by the editor Hans Georg Nägeli as “The Announcement of the Greatest Musical Work of All Times and All People” (“Ankündigung des größten musikalischen Kunstwerkes aller Zeiten und Völker”).[41]

Update: Well, they took down the one performed in Notre Dame.  Censoring seemingly everything about Notre Dame hard.  Even classical music.  Awesome.  Here’s another version of the same piece.  Unfortunately not the same venue.

Notre Dame Burns

The official speculation from mainstream media is that it has something to do with the renovation work going on.  That alone should tell you it’s probably something else.  The odds of one of the most prominent symbols of Christianity burning in the holiest week on the Christian calendar seems like a stretch.

MW-HH624_paris_20190415134805_ZH

Who knows if the truth will ever actually come out.  It is completely fair to speculate that it could absolutely have been done intentionally by someone or a group of people who may not share the Christian values that France once had as part of the West.  Speculate all you want.  And given that there was 875 of France’s churches vandalized last year alone it is entirely justified to wonder if that is the culprit here too.

Sadly, this is a very fitting image to describe what’s going on in the West right now.  Christianity is under attack.  Our values are under attack.  The question is when will the tide completely turn and when will people start pushing back?  And how hard?  You can already feel the pendulum swinging back culturally a little bit, but it has a long way to go.  It wouldn’t shock me at all if they discovered this was the result of Muslim terrorism, and it wouldn’t shock me at all if they completely buried that story either.  There might actually, finally, be enough outrage to boil over and start to take back what is rightfully theirs.  Paris is not the Paris you remembered even 10 years ago.  It is completely overrun.  That’s the same story in much of the West.  And unless people start to stand up for their convictions, they will only continue to get bolder.

Of course, with any tragedy, you will have true scum who will try to insert their own agenda.  Enter the worm that is Ben Shapiro.

ShapiroNotreDame

Literally NOTHING about Notre Dame has to do with Judaism.  It is one of the most prominent Catholic structures on Earth.  There is no such thing as Judeo-Christian values, morality, whatever.  It is a lie.  A nonsense term.  A Judeo-Christian is a Jew who converts to Christianity.  Other than that the term is meaningless.  Well, not entirely meaningless.  The intent of the term is to obfuscate the truth.  To somehow make it sound like Jewish values had anything to do with the building of the West.  Ben goes into this lie in far more detail in the book he released last month which uses that term quite a lot.  Ben Shapiro is controlled opposition.  He is propped up to appear like he is an ally of “the right” when in fact he is anything but.  I single him out specifically here because he is a charlatan and it seems like a lot of people on the right think he is an ally.

Christians around the world have a right to be upset and mad about what happened in Paris today.  If there is any silver lining on this, it could be if Christians rally to start to fight back and stand up for what they believe in.  To take back their faith from those who have infested various churches and fundamentally altered Christ’s teachings for their own nefarious purposes.  The number of churches converged today is staggering.  And if it ever does come out that this was a hate crime, it would do France and the West a lot of good to start expelling those who have no interest in Western values, and no intention of assimilating.  Otherwise, if you let the wolf in the front door, you only have yourself to blame for what happens next.

American flags on Laguna Beach police cars spark backlash

You can’t even put the American flag on a police car anymore without somebody being offended.

A decision to affix an American flag graphic to the side of freshly painted Laguna Beach police cars is dividing residents, who are alternately praising the image as patriotic or panning it as too aggressive.

After hearing the criticism and acknowledging that the image they approved didn’t quite match the final results, officials agreed to reconsider their February decision to paint the Laguna Beach Police Department’s fleet of 11 squad cars. The City Council will take up the issue again at its Tuesday meeting.

 

“People are screaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another … hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors,” said Councilman Peter Blake. “People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

Why do we care whether immigrants or visitors feelings are being hurt by putting OUR OWN FLAG on our own police cars?  Seriously, who cares.  There was a time not that long ago when people were taught to be respectful of the host.  If you are visiting someone’s house you respect the rules of their house.  The same goes for a country.  You don’t go in and bitch and moan about how the country is run when you are a guest there.  This isn’t rocket science.
Let this serve as a warning, a microcosm of what will happen as we let more immigrants in.  They will fundamentally change what it means to be American and what American values are.  The dirt is not magical.  You do not magically inherit Western values by all of a sudden living on the soil.  They’re already changing the landscape in places like Minnesota that are being overrun by Muslims.  You think they’ll complain about putting the American flag on the car but not complain about far more important issues down the road?  Are we really that naive or stupid?
The future of this country belongs to our children.  Not to people who have not had a hand in the fighting for it and haven’t contributed anything at all.  It is not virtuous to hand it over to complete strangers and take away from your children’s future to do it.  That is just evil.

The Triumphal Entry

Luke 19:28-44 (ESV)

The Triumphal Entry

28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

California: A Degenerate Playground for Adults

California may be the epicenter for the societal decay going on in the West right now.  California is a perverted version of Neverland for adults.  Nobody there wants to grow up.  The pursuit of pleasure and escape from reality is the main motivator for far more adults there than many would think.

People are waiting longer and longer to get married, if they get married at all.  California has the 7th highest age for women to get married, behind other liberal dens of degeneration like New York, Massachusetts, and Washington DC (though not a state, this was the highest age for all women, at 30).  You may wonder why that matters.  Well, when women put off child-rearing that late, the chances they will even try to have kids at all surely declines the older a woman gets.  Couple that with the phenomena of “dog moms” and you have a recipe for generational disaster.  What’s a dog mom, you ask?  Peruse any dating app in California and you are inevitably inundated with dog moms, or women who own dogs and proclaim themselves as dog moms.  They call them their babies.  You can see women stop each other on the street fawning over each other’s dogs the way mothers used to do this with babies.  It’s almost as if they’re trying to satiate an innate urge deep down…but what do I know.  Biology is a social construct, right?  My theory on this is they have that motherly urge, but having a child is too much responsibility in their eyes, and plus who wants to put on all that extra weight, amirite?  It’s so much easier to be a career woman and only have to walk and take care of a dog when you get home from work anyways.  This may sound harsh, but this is the state of things.

Guys aren’t any better.  You can see dudes over 40 years old skateboarding everywhere in the coastal California cities.  Grown adults of both genders zip around on those electric scooters and bikes.  Then after a long day of work, if one has a job, what better way to relax and unwind than smoking a bowl on the beach maaaan?  “It’s 4:20 somewhere” is a common billboard you’ll see everywhere.  Marijuana billboards dot the landscape.  Advertising to adults to smoke weed to help…your hangover.

marijuana.billboard.pesky.hangover

Again, many will say “are all these things really that big a deal?”.  “Why does it matter?”

Yes, it does matter.  When you’ve raised a whole generation or two to endlessly pursue only pleasure, in the YOLO generation, it does effect the fabric of society.  We may not feel it right away, much like we didn’t feel the effects of tolerating all sorts of perversion and bad behavior right away, in a still largely Christian society, but we are starting to see and feel it.  The pursuit of pleasure as an ultimate endpoint is empty.  It is not gratifying.  More young adults are on anti-depressants than ever before.  Single women, if not dog moms, buy cats to fill that empty void.

I’m sure California isn’t the only place with this issue of adults who never really grew up, but in a place with near perfect weather and cushy benefits to those who do not work, the problem is probably worse there than most other places.  Perfect weather, the epicenter of the porn industry, lax drug laws, and a liberal mentality that takes all responsibility off of the people of the state, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Not to beat a dead horse here, but it does require constant reminding, and the idea needs to spread in general, that Western civilization fundamentally depends on Christianity.  Without it, we do not have a western society.  Connect the dots.  Contrast the ultimate aim of a Christian to that of one who feels there is no higher purpose and that there is nothing beyond this life.  Without that higher calling, it is easy to see how one could fall into the “you only live once” mentality.  Christians fundamentally have longer time preferences.  Longer time preferences enable the ability to delay gratification.  Christianity encourages family building (go forth and multiply).  When you have a family, and you have children who depend on you, your purpose becomes greater than yourself.  You want to leave the world a better place than the way you inherited it so your children can live better lives.  And this is passed on from generation to generation.  It sounds so simple, so obvious, but look how far we’ve strayed from this.  It’s no wonder there are more homeless people today and more people on welfare today than ever before.  California cities are filthy.  San Diego sidewalks reek of piss everywhere.  You can download an app to report human feces in the streets of San Francisco.

Liberal paradise

When you have nobody but yourself to live for, what point is there to save up money if you aren’t going to pass it on to anybody?  Who cares if you suck off the tit of the state?  And when you take no responsibility for your actions, and don’t care about future generations because “whatever, I won’t be alive for it anyway”, it is easy to see how people could vote for policies that literally kill off future generations (look up how many abortions have been performed) and be okay with allowing anyone and everyone to come into the country unchecked, legally or illegally.  If you think there’s nothing beyond this life it becomes awfully easy to justify bad behavior.  So yes, it does matter.
