Almost half of Americans

Have stopped talking politics with someone

According to the Pew Research Center, close to half of all U.S. adults acknowledge that they have stopped discussing political and election news with someone.

 

Many people find that family dinners and social gatherings are like having a picnic surrounded by landmines; each word and comment has to be carefully weighed because it will most likely start a fight.

 

What ever happened to a healthy debate where alternative political views could be discussed in a respectful manner providing a forum where both parties just might learn something?

 

Liberals are more likely to stop talking politics today because it is uncomfortable for them to engage in a debate when trying to justify Biden’s harmful and unconstitutional policies, namely: 

  • the continued surge of migrants pouring into the U.S.
  • migrants causing covid 19 being released into the general population.
  • Federal Government forced covid 19 vaccination shots.
  • the flawed Afghanistan exit with Americans and American supporters left behind.
  • the high price of gasoline and consumer goods.
  • the obvious flawed election of Biden portrayed by the Liberals and mainstream media as just a conspiracy theory.
  • the Liberals and the controlled media continuing to promote the fake narrative that the U.S. is a racist country when prominent Black leaders say systemic racism is a lie.
  • the relentless attack on those states like Georgia and Texas who are enacting more stringent election laws which do not disenfranchise any minorities!

 

It makes one wonder how many Biden supporters now wish they had voted for Trump in spite of his lack of social skills.

Banking as a Public Utility

Why not create three separate banks owned by (1) the city of St. Joseph, (2) Buchanan County and (3) the state of Missouri?  Any profits generated would be returned to each governing body to help finance things like infrastructure projects and even low interest loans to its citizens. 

 

This isn’t a new or radical idea; at least for North Dakota who successfully established a state owned bank in 1919 to promote agriculture and commerce, in their state.  Over the last 21 years, BND has generated almost $1 billion in profit for the citizens of North Dakota instead of a private bank.

 

One way banks make money is by borrowing from depositors, paying them interest as low as 1% or lower and then lending the money at 3% to 15% or more.

 

What is seldom explained is that banks are not required to keep on hand the entire amount of the depositor’s cash which in effect allows the bank to make a profit on money that is not theirs. This is called Fractional-reserve banking where banks hold in reserve an amount equal to only a fraction of the bank's deposit liabilities.

 

Of course, the commercial banks will resist the idea of pubic owned banks but it makes sense to have the public benefit from money creation instead of a private bank

 

William Jennings Bryan said it best in his "Cross of Gold" Speech. "I stand with Jefferson...that the issue of money is a function of government and the banks ought  to get out of the governing businerss."

United States Foreign Policy

 Does not represent the American People

Our founding fathers had hoped for a non-interventionist foreign policy that promoted "commerce with all nations, alliance with none." However, this goal has seldom been reached.  Today the President and special interest groups control our foreign policy with little input from Congress.  It has resulted in perpetual wars and nation building decisions that reflect poorly on a so called civilized nation like the United States.

 

For the most part, since 1776 Congress has been excluded from foreign policy decision making. Could congress have gotten involved and made better decisions involving:

 

  • the U.S. harsh treatment of Native Americans?
  • the many undeclared wars the U.S. has fought; like Afghanistan, Viet Nam, Korea, and Iraq where the decisions to go to war was motivated by oil interests?
  • the support of Israel’s wars?
  • the U.S. keeping a huge stockpile of nuclear weapons; urging other nations not to get them?
  • the empire building of the U.S. similar to that of Ancient Rome?
  • the United States intervening in foreign elections?
  •  

The 1973 War Powers Act sought to restrain the president’s ability to commit U.S. forces overseas by requiring the executive branch to consult with Congress before involving U.S. forces in foreign hostilities.

 

However, the War Powers Act has mostly been ignored by subsequent presidents, many of whom regarded it as an usurpation of their executive authority.

 

If we are to improve our foreign policy decisions to represent what is in the best interest of the American people and the entire world, we need greater Congressional participation that represents the people instead of just the president and special interest groups.

Democrats Use the Race Card

In an Attempt to Take Control of the Voting Process

 

Whether you believe that Biden honestly won the election or not, you surely believe that with nearly half of all Americans believing that Trump was the winner, our country is in a dangerous mess.  The majority of Americans must have confidence in our government for it to function as a Democracy.

 

All states, must update their voting laws for Americans to trust the election process. Basic changes needed are those that (1) keep dead people from voting, (2) prohibits voting machines from being connected to the internet and (3) prohibits massive unsolicited mail out ballots.

 

Georgia is off to a good start by ensuring ballot integrity, but Biden and far left liberals claim that Georgia’s voting law is racist; mainly because a photo ID is required to vote in person.  Even an expired driver’s license is acceptable in Georgia  and if you don’t have that, the state offers a free ID card issued by the Georgia Department of Driver Services.

 

The idea that the law tortures Black voters standing in line by denying them food or water is ridiculous. You can bring your own water, or the poll workers can hand out water but having a person handing out water bottles with Joe’s face on it next to the voting booth is called campaigning and is illegal.

 

The Democrats trying to sell this law as Racist only reveals their true intentions of completely taking over the voting process from the states making it unlikely that any Republicans would be elected for years.

 

Allowing either party to have this much control over the voting process would literally destroy our Democracy.

U. S. Shouldn't Fight Israel's Wars

 

 

Some say Israel must be supported because they are the only friend we have in the Middle East, they have the right to defend themselves, and God said in the Bible that this land belonged to the Jews and that they were his chosen people.

 

Others claim that Israel has not recognized the Palestinians claim to the West Bank and is not allowing adequate food and medical supplies to be shipped into the Gaza strip. Therefore we must support the Palestinians.

 

So who has a legitimate claim to the land mass now referred to as Israel; a country only slightly larger than the state of New Jersey?

 

I propose that neither has claim to this land based on 4,000 year old history. However, since the Israelis respond in such devastating retaliation to the Palestinian attacks, it would be in the best interest of the Palestinians, to accept their defeat and stop the insane idea of wiping Israel off the face of the earth.

 

Israel refuses to declare its present borders in favor of their possible future expansion.  Recently Russia and Iran, Syria’s allies, stopped Israel and the US from ousting the duly elected Assad of Syria. I certainly don’t support  the US in fighting Israel’s wars!

 

It appears that Israel’s long term goal is to annex the Gaza Strip, southern Lebanon, the western parts of Jordan, and southern Syria including the occupied Golan Heights.

 

How can this Imperialism (Empire –Building) by Israel which has caused so much suffering be justified?

Is the United States a Racist Country?

By Larry Flinchpaugh

Is the United States a Racist Country? Not according to many prominent Black leaders! Republican Senator Tim Scott shocked many people when, in response to Biden’s congressional address, he stated that “America is not a racist country.”

 

Larry Elder, a Black American conservative talk radio host, author, and attorney, says many African-Americans have become "victicrats" by blaming their problems on racism. "… Racism is not our major problem," says Elder. "Personal responsibility is."

 

Candace Owens, Black director of communications for Turning Point USA said, “Stop selling us our own oppression. Stop taking away our self-confidence by telling us that we can’t because of racism….”

 

How could millions of white Americans who voted for a black president be racist?” Unlike in the past, Black people today are excelling in Politics, Business, Hollywood, Sports, etc.

 

Martin Luther King, who led the civil rights movement from the 1950s until his assassination in 1968 was instrumental in ending the legal segregation of African Americans. Even though King won the racism war, the Democrats have continued to promote racism in order to maintain control over the Black vote.

 

Shame on the Democrats and shame on those Blacks who continue to allow the Democrats to control their lives with false racist claims.

 

It’s true that some police officers employ excessive force when arresting both Whites and Blacks.  Don’t lump these rogue officers in the same basket with good officers. There are  significant findings that conscious  racial  animosity accounts  for  only  a  small  percentage  of  racially inflected  police  conduct

Why is it so Difficult to Change Our Political Views?

    Nearly all of us, both Liberals and Conservatives, suffer from what psychologists call cognitive dissonance.  This occurs when a person is confronted with contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values, resulting in psychological stress.

 

     According to this theory, when two actions or ideas are not psychologically consistent with each other, people do all in their power to change them until they become consistent. The discomfort is triggered by the person's belief clashing with new information perceived, wherein they try to find a way to resolve the contradiction to reduce their discomfort.

 

     But, will they make the right decision in relieving the stress between these two opposing ideas; particularly when it involves politics? Most likely not.

 

     Another example, let’s say that a chain smoker finds out that the Surgeon General reveals that smoking is harmful to your health.  The obvious solution is to remove this conflict by stop smoking.  Instead, the smoker incorrectly reasons that since he gets lots of exercise and eats a good number of vegetables it will be ok to keep smoking. 

 

    Wrong decision but the conflict in him is resolved.

Monthly $2,000 Stimulus Checks???

April 8, 2021

 

Stimulus Checks Forever? One Lawmaker Wants $2,000 Checks Every Month.

     In a January press release, Rep. Ilhan Omar said: “A one-time payment of $2,000 is simply not enough. The American people are counting on us to deliver transformative change, and we need to meet the moment by delivering monthly payments of $2,000.”

 

     These monthly checks would be nice but would have serious consequences down the road.  The masses will start getting dependent on them, especially if they start sending them out each month.  The people then will be so dependent on the government, they will have lost nearly all of their freedom.  The government would have complete control over us.  We didn't even see it coming!

 

     If you didn't agree with the government narrative:

  • You could be denied access to air travel.
  • You could be denied access to Federal buildings and Federal Parks, etc.
  • ETC.
  • Hopfully Omar is the only Representative supporting this idea!

Biden’s Equity Verses Conservative’s Equality?

By Larry Flinchpaugh

March 25, 2021

Joe Biden continues the fake narrative that Racism is systemic in the United States and is just appearing to fix the real inequality of the races by signing Executive Order No.13985.  Biden’s solution to Racism inequality is what he, in error, refers to as Equity which will actually result in taking from one person to give to another. His EO is officially entitled Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities.

 

Actually, Equity is an accounting term that is the value of all assets owned less all your liabilities and has nothing to do with Equality.  

 

Biden is promoting the idea of Equity (equal outcome regardless of input) for minorities, for the purpose of ensuring that they will vote for Democrats. Biden’s idea of Equity means the Liberal government will support financial aid, legislation, and other perks to minorities; even to those who don’t warrant it.

 

Instead of using Biden’s EO 13985 to solve his fake and unrealistic problem, why doesn’t the government concentrate on developing programs to assist the underprivileged minorities to finishing high school and not getting married and having children until they have a job?

 

Research shows that if you finish high school and don’t get married or have children until you have a job, 98% would not be in poverty and 75% would join the middle class.

 

The Conservatives believe in Social Equality (not Equity) where all people within a specific society have equal rights and opportunities to access social goods and services.

Lawyers Need Not Worry

By Larry Flinchpaugh

March 4, 2021

The News Press article February 22, 2021 “Legal Concerns- Lawyers worried they’ll be reprimanded for taking marijuana clients.”

 

The lawyers fear a new Missouri Supreme Court comment will make it impossible for them to represent medical marijuana clients because of state law being in conflict with federal law. While medical marijuana was legalized by majority vote of the public, Patrick Nolan, a Missouri attorney says it is still illegal under federal law.

 

I don’t claim to be a lawyer but I don’t believe the lawyers have anything to worry about especially if they want to take their argument to the Supreme Court.  As I see it, the Federal Government has no jurisdiction in marijuana regulations concerning individual states.  The argument could be made that the federal government does have jurisdiction in Washington DC but not in the individual states.

 

The Tenth Amendment of our Constitution says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Doesn’t it follow then that the Federal Government has no jurisdiction over not only marijuana but for that matter any other drugs or even food unless the Constitution is amended to give them jurisdiction.  In other words a federal law that is not constitutional is not a law at all.

Two Conspiracy Theories

February 26, 2021

by: Larry Flinchpaugh

On January 6, mostly peaceful protesters were in Washington DC to claim that the presidential election was stolen from Trump. The Democrats and their partners in crime, the main stream news media, wrongly asserted that Pro-Trump supporters rioted and overtook U.S. Capitol officers with the intention to enter the building as lawmakers attempted to count the Electoral College votes. 

 

If this scenario or one similar had taken place earlier, the Capitol guards would have behaved much more aggressively by using deadly force to protect the legislators and their staff. Since only limited resistance was shown, I find it highly suspicious considering how badly the Democrats wanted to destroy President Trump.  The videos show the capitol police appearing to just be posing for the camera as if they had been told to stand down to purposely allow the rioters to breach the Capitol Building.

 

It’s very likely that the democrats set up this scenario in order to demonize President Trump even more. There was intel hours earlier that the Capitol breach was likely to take place from protestors including the BLM and ANTIFA.  Keep in mind that just because you wear a red MAGA cap does not prove you are a Trump supporter!

 

Pelosi continued to impeach Trump a second time even though he was no longer in office.  This shows just how desperate the democrat party has become.

 

The republicans’ conspiracy theory that Trump did not incite the riot doesn’t seem to be so unbelievable after all.

Tax Fairness- Buchanan County School Property Tax

January 28, 2021

by: Larry Flinchpaugh

 

The idea of tax fairness can differ significantly based on how much wealth or income a person has (ability to pay) and the services they receive resulting from paying the tax.  The Buchanan County school property tax fails on the basic tax fairness philosophy if you consider that the tax continues even after a person retires and is no longer in the workforce and hasn’t had any children in the school system for the last 40 years or so.

 

At 81 years old, this unfair tax has become quite a burden for people like me. I pay over $2,000 a year in school property taxes that is paid from my social security check and a small pension. The tax continues to go up along with the cost of living without any increases in my limited income.

 

Many would argue that the overall health of society benefits from a well-financed school system.  They are correct but shouldn’t this end when a person retires at 65 and may have limited sources to pay the tax? Haven’t they already paid their fair share?

 

The effect of this unfair tax is even more of a burden with all the hardships associated with the  COVID 19 pandemic.

 

It doesn’t seem unreasonable to ask the state’s taxing authority to start eliminating this unfair tax for retirees over 65.  If you disagree, how about eliminating it at age 70, 80, 90, or 100?

Associated Press Reveals their Bias

By: Larry Flinchpaugh

January 7, 2021

 

The December 31, 2020 Associated Press article in the News Press, states that Senator Josh Hawley will raise objections when congress meets to confirm president-elect Joe Biden.  The Associated Press inaccurately claims that Trump has no evidence of voter fraud.

 

The Associated Press is wrong.  There are many examples of fraud.

 

Consider this:

  • Meaningful access to vote tabulation was denied.
  • Votes were stopped counting in multiple districts at the same time.
  • Votes were accepted after the dead line.
  • In some cases there were more votes than registered voters.
  • Many cases of dead people voting.
  • In some cases State legislators in swing states were not allowed by law, to select the electors.
  • Rejected court cases cannot be claimed as a loss for Trump when they weren’t even tried.
  • VP Pence who has the constitutional authority to reject any of the electors may not to be recognized.
  • Dominion voting machines were hacked and in some cases gave Biden full votes with Trump receiving only fractional votes.
  • Undocumented aliens voted illegally.
  • There is evidence of ballots being discarded, hundreds of thousands of ballots appearing out of thin air, ballot harvesting, and a lower standard of verification for some mail-in ballots.
  • Same batch of ballots scanned FIVE TIMES in Fulton, GA

 

Any republican who does not support investigating voter fraud in the 2020 election should be penalized by being voted out of office.

 

The future of our Democratic Republic is at stake. The ongoing coup to over throw our government and the constitution by the left, the fake media, and complicit Republicans through voter fraud must be defeated.

End Extreme Poverty

&

Promote Shared Prosperity

 The World Bank claims that the global extreme poverty rate fell to 9.2 percent in 2017, from 10.1 percent in 2015. That is equivalent to 689 million people living on less than $1.90 a day…  Global extreme poverty is expected to rise in 2020 for the first time in over 20 years as the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic compounds the forces of conflict…”

 

Keep in mind that planet earth has an abundants of natural resources and a population who is willing to invest hard work to provide themselves with nutritional food, clean drinking water adequate shelter and employment.  So what is the problem?

 

People in poverty all around the world, including the United States, need only seed money and Environmental Planners to assist them in getting out of miserable and unhealthy living conditions. To accomplish this goal, there should be a new college major developed called “Economic Planners”.  Private companies, for profit, should hire the Economic Planners to change the world.  Don’t forget the dismal results of the federal government’s “War on Poverty”.

Following are just a few programs planners can help with:

  • Converting arid desert land into fertile farm land.
  • Building green houses to grow fruits and vegetable all year round in all types of weather
  • Assist farmers in developing chicken ranches providing eggs and meat
  • Develop fish farms
  • Help to promote Habitat for Humanity
  • Build water wells

 

All of the programs listed above not only provide food for the people but also employment opportunities when abundant food can be sold to others.

 

Videos

One excuse given for not ending poverty is that it is just too costly.  There is a legitimate argument for that if you believe that only Federal Reserve notes or money backed by gold and silver is needed.  Many economists believe that our country’s paper money must be backed by gold and silver. They are correct if it is to adhere to the constitution. Article I, Section 8, says that “Congress shall have Power…to coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin.” And from Section 10, “no state…shall make anything but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.”   A Federal Reserve note is unconstitutional because of Article I, Section 8 of the constitution.

 

On June 5, 1933, the United States went off the gold standard, a monetary system in which our currency was backed by gold, when Congress enacted a joint resolution nullifying the right of creditors to demand payment in gold.

 

President Richard Nixon announced that the United States would no longer redeem currency for gold or any other precious metal, forming the final step in abandoning the gold and silver standards. This announcement was part of the economic measures now known as the "Nixon Shock"

 

What we have now is an unconstitutional paper money system with no gold or silver backing.  Although it is unconstitutional, it does work effectively until the government prints too much paper money; causing inflation by devaluating the existing paper money.  When our paper money was backed by gold or silver it did limit the amount of money printed due to the scarcity and value of gold and silver.

 

In reality though paper money needs no backing other than that added by a person adding value by working or risking an investment.  All paper money needs to do is keep track of a person adding value to the paper money.  If one worker works eight hours today, he receives 8 pieces of paper and one who works 10 hours gets 10 pieces of paper.

 

Gold and silver backed paper money may come in play in international trade.  Say the US wants to buy Vodka from Russia and pay with paper money with no precious metal backing; Federal Reserve notes.  Russia will agree to this if the US manufactures something they want i.e.; caterpillars.  If the US no longer manufacture caterpillars but offers them hamburgers, they will insist on gold and/or silver.

 

Again, all paper money needs to do is to keep track of a financial transaction. (No gold or silver is needed.) Following is a hypothetical example:

 

A traveling salesman stops in a small town to get a motel for the night. The clerk advises him to hurry up and make up his mind because the motel is usually full at this time of night.  The salesman lays a 100 dollar bill on the counter and explains to the clerk that he is quite particular and heads up the stairs to inspect the rooms.

 

The clerk, remembering he owed the grocery store across the street 100 dollars, runs across the street to pay his bill. The owner of the grocery crosses the back ally to pay the butcher for the meat he had purchased the day before.  The butcher then goes over to the motel to pay the motel clerk the 100 dollars he owed him.  About that time the traveling salesman comes down the stairs picking up his 100 bill saying the rooms were nice but not what he was looking for.

 

Look how many financial transactions were settled with no precious metals involved.

 

Economic planners and a little seed money can drastically improve the lives of those living in poverty

 

There is a small group of farmers in a remote area of Afghanistan who barely provide enough food for their families.  Part of them grows wheat in the valley and part of them drives their livestock higher up into the mountain area for grazing.  They take turns doing this same thing year after year.

Just think what the Economic Planners could do for these people.

 

 

 

Modern Agriculture is changing the Lives of other Afghan Farmers-

Regreening the desert with John D. Liu

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDgDWbQtlKI&t=4s

When allowed, paper scrip money could be printed to help these depressed areas grow.  Abraham Lincoln helped finance the Civil War with “Green Backs” and Hitler partially financed his war effort in WWII with “Work Receipts” that could be used the same as money.

 

Most countries would probably prohibit an outsider to create paper money except maybe in the Indian Nations within the US.  Each member of the group would receive $2,000 to $5,000 in paper money to prime their economic pump. Then true Capitalism takes over.

 

This is a secret that the international bankers prefer to keep.

Religious Beliefs Need Updating

By: Larry Flinchpaugh

November 20, 2020

 

Did you know that there is no scholarly consensus on what precisely constitutes a religion?  Maybe if the three major religions would revise their barbaric holy books and belief system, we could be well on our way to establishing world peace.

 

Christianity- The cruelty in the OT is defended by Christians saying, “My church goes mainly by the New Testament.” However, in the New Testament Jesus says, “I did not come to change the OT prophets’ one iota or one tittle.”  (Matthew 5:18)

Some OT beliefs:

  • If a child talks back to you, you should kill him (Deuteronomy 21:18-21).
  • Women are to speak only in the privacy of their own home… (1 Corinthians 14:35).
  • Gays and lesbians should be killed (Leviticus 20:13).

 

Islam-  Some Sharia law beliefs:

  • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
  • A man can beat his wife for insubordination.
  • Criticizing Muhammad or denying him as a prophet is punishable by death.
  • Theft is punishable by amputation of the right hand.

 

Judaism- Some Talmud beliefs:

  • If a Gentile hits a Jew he must be killed.” (Sanhedrin 58b)
  • If a Jew finds an object lost by a Gentile, it does not have to be returned.” (Baba Mezia 24a)
  • If a Jew murders a Gentile, there will be no death penalty.” (Sanhedrin 57a)
  • What a Jew steals from a Gentile, he may keep.” (Sanhedrin 57a)
  • All children of Gentiles are animals.” (Yebamoth 98a)

The Prophetic George Orwell’s 1984 Is Here--

The Unelected Controllers Win-- This Round

By: Larry Flinchpaugh

November 14, 2020

The 2020 ballot fiasco makes one suspect that ballot counting fraud has been going on for years.  It was more evident this time because of the democrat’s exerted effort to neuter President Trump mainly because of his promise to drain the swamp which would have resulted in many of them facing jail time.

 

Our founding fathers were very wise to add the Electoral College provision to the constitution in order to allow both large and small states

to be fairly represented; the Electoral College must be kept. 

 

However there needs to be a change in the election process regarding the voter’s ability to verify that their vote was recorded correctly. Following an election, the voter should be able to search a vote tracking number on an internet data base to verify that their vote was recorded honestly.

 

I don’t believe Joe Biden won the election honestly, but under our present system, it will be extremely difficult and costly to do a recount because of the corrupt FBI, DOJ, and federal judges.

 

However, the True Patriots, those that the democrats have called “Deplorable’s”, can be sure that the movement that Trump has started has not died; just delayed.

Pandemic Over Reaction

By:  Larry Flinchpaugh

October 27, 2020

The over-reaction to COVID 19 with government lock downs is based on bogus inflated numbers. The statistics should differentiate between those that died FROM COVID 19 from those that died WITH COVID 19.  The Democrats handling of this pandemic has caused them to be known as the party of the fear mongering radical obstructionists.

 

Trump has handled the corona virus the best he could considering there are people who are not advising him well on the science side. (Including WHO and the CDC) Doctor Fauci is embedded in the scientific establishment and big pharma while ignoring that more importantly there are many people with a dysfunctional weakened immune system that causes them to be more susceptible to the virus. In order to have a maximum defense against any virus, you must have a healthy diet and life style.

 

The truth about surviving this pandemic has less to do with mandating vaccines and shutting down the country and more about developing a healthy immune system.

 

Keep in mind that the vaccines being developed are for big pharma profits and eventually to usher in new laws of compulsory vaccine shots plus the opportunity to suppress consent and destroy freedom.

The Cure is Worse than the Disease

By: Larry Flinchpaugh

September 30, 2020

The over-reaction to COVID 19 with government lock downs is based on bogus inflated numbers pushed by those who wish to harm President Trump.  Millions of people’s lives have been destroyed by the economic burdens. The Democratic Party is becoming known as fear mongering radical obstructionists.

 

Although the virus is extremely serious for some people, this pandemic has been blown out of proportion for political reasons.  It’s scary how easily our constitutional rights have been wiped out by simply creating fear in the electorate.

 

The democrats proposed New Norm of compulsory flu shots, a socialist state, disarming the public, the right to kill babies, Free College, Green New Deal, and abolishing the Electoral College must not replace the Old Norm. There are even some California democrats who want to normalize pedophilia!

 

One has to be wary of the John Hopkins Rockefeller prediction (The Event 201 Scenario from 2010) that a pandemic scenario could be used by authoritarian governments to take advantage of a pandemic to destroy our constitution and way of life.  It seems to be a playbook for the evil unelected controllers.

Medicare for All ©

August 16, 2020

By: Larry Flinchpaugh

Finally, Medicare for All can now become a reality! In the past, Conservatives would not support it because it couldn’t be funded without harming the existing Medicare program.  There is a solution, since President Trump is already in the process of eliminating the Federal Reserve.

 

President Trump should support a bill that supports “Medicare for All” and to pay for it, enact a law (same bill) that allows the U.S. Treasury to issue our money supply interest free.

 

Since 1913 the private Federal Reserve has the U.S. Treasury Department issue our money supply and then charges the American taxpayer interest for loaning us our own money.

 

If we would write off the current amount owed the private Federal Reserve and eliminate any future interest the Fed would charge us, we would be well on our way in funding “Medicare for All.” If that isn’t quite enough to fund this socialist program, we can save billions more by stopping our offensive military continuing to be the “Policeman of the World”.

 

As the old saying goes, “Let’s kill two birds with one stone. On second thought, how about killing three birds with one stone:

  • Establishing “Medicare for All” and a way to fund it.
  • Eliminate the private unconstitutional Federal Reserve
  • Eliminate the offensive U.S military acting as Policeman of the world.

 

The passage of this supposed bill would make President Donald Trump to go down in history as the greatest president ever of the United States.

Democrats Continue to Bash Trump

at

Congressman Lewis’s Funeral

 

John Lewis- Civil Rights Leader

Born: February 21, 1940 Died: July 2020

Congress: Georgia, District  5

 

“Often called one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced, John Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls The Beloved Community in America.   His dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won him the admiration of many of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the United States Congress…”

 

John Lewis is to be respected for his work in the civil rights movement regarding the plight of the American Negro. 

 

I found it inappropriate to see the Democrats continuing to bash President Donald Trump at Congressman Lewis’s funeral.  This was not the time or place to politicize his death.  Former President Barack Obama used Rep. John Lewis' funeral to issue a stark warning that the voting rights and equal opportunity the late civil rights icon championed were being  threatened heading into the 2020 election.

 

Obama speech at the congressman’s funeral:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBC52jg8KZo

 

What Obama was referring to was Trumps fear of not having a legitimate and honest election in 2020 when using mail-in ballots. The Democrats are doing all they can to make sure that the nation uses mail in ballots that are wide open to fraud. President Trump has no problem with Absentee Ballots because they are handled in legitimate ways to verify their integrity.

 

President Trump has been criticized for not attending Congressman Lewis’s funeral.  It should be pointed out that Lewis, as a form of descent, did not attend President Trump’s or George W. Bush’s inauguration. He believed they were both not legitimate presidents. President Trump was at odds with the congressman’s voting record on constitutional issues, like the right to bear arms which was in direct opposition to conservative support of the second amendment. The congressman’s record for not voting for constitutional issues is consistent with the low score of nearly all democrats.  A review of the “Congressional scorecard” shows that the republicans consistently score higher than the democrats when voting on constitutional issues.

 

Note:

Congressman Lewis’ Cumulative Freedom Index Score is 26%.  In other words he only voted for constitutional issues 26% of the time. Most conservative legislators, vote much higher for constitutional issues.

The Coup to Unseat Trump Continues

By

Larry Flinchpaugh

July 3, 2020

 

 

To regain power, the democrats have become the party of lawlessness, chaos and disorder. Because their impeachment of President Donald Trump failed, now their focus is on halting our roaring economy so as not to give any credit to Trump.  Anything that can be done to make Trump appear to be unworthy to govern is being tried; regardless if it is legal or even true.

 

Example are:  (1) Continuing the allegations that Trump is a raciest- which he is not, (2) Orchestrating the Plandemic in such a way as to cause  hardships on the American people and consequently blame Trump, (3) Hiring out of town thugs (not true anarchists) to  storm cities like Minneapolis to wreak havoc and cause Trump to forcibly shut them down and then blame him for not allowing constitutional expression of speech, (4) Help establish the group called “Black Lives Matter” which has absolutely nothing to do with police brutality against Blacks but is in reality a giant White fund raiser that does not benefit blacks at all. Black Lives Matter is an openly Marxist organization that funnels their money to the Democrats.  In the long run it will only harm the black people in their quest to obtain justice.

 

Larry Elder, host of “The Larry Elder Show,” points out some enlightening statistics involving so called Police Brutality against Blacks:  (1) approximately 2,600 Blacks are killed by Blacks each year, (2) only about 1,000 civilians are killed each year by the police. That is .002% of all of the police interactions (3) surveys show that police departments nationwide do not reflect systemic racism

 

We have had in the past other virus outbreaks nearly as bad but the entire economy wasn’t shut down. 

 

Per: JAMA Intern Med: “As of early May 2020, approximately 65 000 people in the US had died of (COVID-19), This number appears to be similar to the estimated number of seasonal influenza deaths reported annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”  Per CDC:  ‘As of May 30, 2020, among COVID-19 cases, the most common underlying health conditions were cardiovascular disease (32%), diabetes (30%), and chronic lung disease (18%). Hospitalizations were six times higher and deaths 12 times higher among those with reported underlying conditions compared with those with none reported. ‘

 

If Trump had not been elected, I doubt that these drastic measures would have taken place.  Note that the most property damage inflicted by the demonstrators has been in states with democrat mayors and democrat governors who allowed it to happen; again making President Trump to look bad.   St. Joe was not plagued with buildings being burned because the hired outside thugs were not bussed in to our town. 

 

Look at the statistics in the press reported by the Liberal John Hopkins University. The numbers of deaths are compared to the number of people who tested positive.  Not all died! Why not compare the number of deaths to the population of that particular statistic.   Instead of 5% it is only .004%. Not as scary! The FAKE news media normally does not reveal that the US Covid-19 deaths are heading down despite cases going up. Again, not so scary!

 

The democrats can’t seem to abide by the Constitution that provides a peaceful and constitutional remedy to remove a president every four years.  They have no problem lying, breaking the law and causing chaos just to regain power.  This is literally destroying our country. 

 

With all the dirty tricks and unconstitutional acts committed by the democrats, hopefully there will be a substantial number of democrats who have a little common sense and some degree of wisdom that will vote for Trump in November regardless of Trumps lack of social skills.

Capitalism to Socialism to Communism

Is this America’s Future? ©

September 8, 2019

It’s surprising to me just how many Liberal presidential hopefuls support radical Socialistic views. They seem to be trying to get your vote with the promise of "the Government" providing you with an amazing amount of "free stuff".  Liberals usually refer to Denmark, Switzerland, and Finland as being successful Socialist countries.  What is not understood is that these countries have limited Socialism.  Even though their health care and higher education are Social in nature they still have a “Capitalistic’ system in economic areas; in many cases even better than the U.S. with fewer regulations and restrictions.  Their Capitalistic system along with extremely high income taxes funds their Socialist programs.  Also keep in mind, unlike the U.S.; they are not spending billions on being the “policemen of the world”.

 

Hopefully by 2020 these radical views will not be supported by the mainstream Democrats.  Many of these Liberals and Leftists seem relatively intelligent but most certainly lack wisdom.  None seem to understand how this Socialist ideology will be paid for or the negative economic impact that will surely destroy our country.

 

 

A radical Socialistic wish list:

  • Medicare for everyone; including illegal aliens
  • Free College tuition
  • Elimination of all fossil fuels including Fracking which has made the U.S. energy independent
  •  A Living Wage & Labor Rights
  • Adopt 100% Renewable Energy
  • Open borders allowing illegal democrats to invade our country
  • Establish the false narrative that Global Warming is caused by man and adopt a carbon tax and a Las Vegas type gambling venue of carbon credits.
  • Eliminate consumption of meat.
  • Promote Pro-abortion legislation
  • Firearm confiscation

 

Dangers of adopting Socialism:

  • It is hard to argue an inescapable fact that Socialism has a 100 percent record of failure.
  •  Many of these Socialist Liberals claim that Socialism has not “failed”. It has just never been done properly.  They actually believe we can have limited Socialism without fear of it getting out of control.
  • Even if their system could be made more democratic, it would not address its economic faults.
  • No one may set out to curb democracy and human rights, but every socialist country has done so.  The near complete control of a country’s economic system leads to the ruler’s corruption of the system for their personal benefit.   It’s the end of Democracy.

 

 

Reasons why Socialism doesn’t work: 

  • It is impossible for a Socialist Central Planner to plan the economy as well as what happens in a Capitalist economy, because in the Capitalist economy you have property ownership with millions of people buying and selling with prices naturally occurring based on supply and demand.
  • A Central Planner obviously doesn't have all these inputs to do the planning well.
  • Confiscation and redistribution of production creates an incentive to produce much less.
  • Equality is achieved by having everyone equal in their misery.
  • Unlike Capitalism, in Socialism, Incentives are ignored. In Capitalism, private property rights provide an efficient system of incentives to guide and direct positive economic behavior.

 

The colossal failures of Socialism in the 20 century should have relegated this system to be an example what not to ever attempt again.

 

In the mid-1990s many parts of the world were moving away from socialism and were adopting free market capitalism. In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed, the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, and China was opening up its economy to world trade. China is still considered a Communist country causing much hardship to the Chinese people. Do we want to risk adopting China’s economic system; total authoritarian control of all aspects of our lives?

 

Why in the world have the radical Liberal Leftists begun to resurrect this failed system?   Do they really believe what they are proposing or have they been duped by the real controllers behind the curtain that want complete control of our economic system?

 

The adoption of Socialism in the U.S., even limited Socialism, will mark the end of our freedom and will destroy our entire economy. Remember, Capitalism works for all; not just a few.

 

 Reference:

 

Capitalism

Economic system based on private ownership of the means of production and the creation of goods or services for profit

 

Socialists

The socialist political movement includes a set of political philosophies that originated in the revolutionary movements of the mid-to-late 18th century and out of concern for the social problems that were associated with capitalism. By the late 19th century, after the work of Karl Marx and his collaborator Friedrich Engels, socialism had come to signify opposition to capitalism and advocacy for a post-capitalist system based on some form of social ownership of the means of production.

Jewish Food Tax

A quick check of your food pantry shelves will reveal dozens of canned and packaged food products which have a tiny "K" or "U" printed on the label.  Most people have no idea what this means and even more could care less.  Would you be surprised to learn that it shows that a religious group which comprises only 2.2% of US population is taxing your food? All food products marked with the "K" or "U" Symbols have been TAXED by Jewish Rabbis!

 

This should be more appropriately called the “Kosher Tax.” Kosher means "fit" to eat. Orthodox Jews are forbidden from eating meat products from any animal that doesn't have a split hoof and chew its cud. Rabbit meat is not kosher because, while they chew their cud, they don't have split hooves. Also Jews are not allowed to eat any dairy products along with meat at the same meal. If they eat meat at one meal, they must wait six hours before they can eat any dairy food.  These superstitious religious beliefs have absolutely nothing to do with non-Jews and they certainly do not justify a Jewish tax on non-Jews food products.

 

American food companies are forced to pay multi-billions of dollars to Orthodox Jewish organizations, just so Jews will buy their products. Please bear in mind that this Kosher Tax is just to appease less than 1% of the population’s superstitions. This tax has nothing to do with improving the quality of any food product but does increase the cost of food purchased by everyone.

 

There now has been a "kosher food explosion" today with over 16,000 products now paying rabbinical organizations for their "stamp of kosher approval." This is nothing but a trillion dollar racketeering scheme, in which almost ever nation on Earth pays the KOSHER TAX.  This does not mean I‘m Anti-Semitic, I’m merely informing my readers of a few facts.

 

The kosher symbols are deliberately printed "inconspicuously on labels" so that they will go unnoticed.

Church Tax Exemption Request ©

SATIRE

I have often wondered what kind of response I would get from the Internal Revenue Service if I were to apply for a 501-c tax exemption for a new church I was considering founding. My letter to them might go something like this:


Dear Sirs:


I would like for you to consider giving my new church that I am founding a 501-c tax exemption. My church will be a non-profit organization where none of the earnings will go to me or any private shareholder or individual and we will not attempt to influence any legislation as a substantial part of our activities nor will we participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.


Following is a summary of our church doctrine and our core beliefs:

 

  1. If our children are shameless enough to talk back to us, we feel that they should be killed.
  1. We believe that our creator clearly expects us to keep slaves.
  1. We believe a man can sell his daughter into sexual slavery.
  1. If a man discovers, on his wedding night, that his bride is not a virgin, he must stone her to death and leave her on  her father's doorstep.
  1. Our women can only speak in the privacy of their own home.
  1. We believe that homosexuals are to be put to death.
  1. Our God is an enemy to unbelievers.
  1. We believe that persecution is worse than slaughter and we are justified in slaying them wherever we   find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove us out. We do not think that those who were slain in the cause of God are dead. They are alive and well provided for by their Lord.
  1. We believe that our church should not take as friends the people of other religions; they are friends of each other. Those of us who make them his friends is one of them. God does not guide an unjust people.
  1. We believe that we must make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is Hell, a hapless journey's end.
  1. Those that don't believe like us are enemies of God and they will roast in Hell.
  1. We believe that we must be harsh against the unbelievers, merciful to one another.
  1. If one of our church members is tempted to do evil, we believe that he should go to a city where he is not known, dress in black clothes, cover his head in black, and do what his heart desires so that God's name will not be desecrated.
  1. We consider only people of our faith to be human. Women of other faiths are designated animals (she asses")
  1. If a person of another faith hits one of our faith, they must be killed. Hitting one of our faith is the same as hitting God.
  1. Someone of our faith is not required to pay someone of another faith the wages owed him for work.
  1. If someone of our faith finds an object lost by someone of another faith, ("heathen") it does not need to be returned.
  1. When someone of our faith murders someone of another faith, there will be no death penalty.
  1. What someone of our faith steals from a person of another faith he may keep it.
  1. People of our faith may use lies ("subterfuges") to circumvent a person of another faith.
  1. We believe that other faiths children are animals.
  1. We believe that people of other faiths prefer sex with cows.
  1. We believe that to heal our flesh, we should take dust that lies within the shadow of an outdoor toilet, mix it with honey and eat it.
  1. We are obligated to say the following prayer every day. "Thank you God for not making me a person of another faith, woman or slave."
  1. Money must not be lent at interest to a fellow member of our faith. Interest can only be collected from foreigners.


When considering this request for tax exemption status, please be advised that our belief system was taken from the Holy Books of the three major religions; the Christians Jews and Muslims which you have already granted nonprofit 501-C tax exemption status.

 

Sincerely,

Ima Satire

Countering the Tyranny

of the

Federal Government ©

The Tenth Amendment   to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. It simply states that the federal government possesses only those powers delegated to it by the United States Constitution. All remaining powers are reserved for the states or the people.

 

Thomas Jefferson reportedly said in 1798, "Resolved, that the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government . .  whenever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force."

 

This mean that issues involving marijuana, prescription drugs, universal healthcare, food regulations, education, abortion, etc. are not under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government’s Department of Justice, or even the Supreme Court but rather are reserved for the states or the people.

 

Hopefully, with the support of President elect Donald Trump and a House and Senate with a Republican majority, the Tenth Amendment will be recognized and adhered too.  Adhering to the Tenth Amendment would reduce the tyranny and bloated bureaucracy of the Federal government and allow the individual states to decide these issues where they are more accountable to the citizens.

Congressional Scorecard and

Patriotism Test ©

See how your elected Legislators score in voting for Constitutional issues and then compare the average Liberal score with the average Conservative score.

                                                       Click on Photo

Do you consider yourself to be a “Patriot“? In other words, a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion, a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government. Are our Legislators considered Patriots when they don’t abide by their oath to vote for only constitutional issues?

Recently, I did a study on how well our federal legislators scored on voting for constitutional issues. I was surprised to discover that the nine democrat legislators I studied failed miserably scoring only 14% while the nine republicans studied scored on the average at 74%. But the question is, do our representatives have to abide by their oath to support constitutional issues in order to be considered Patriots?  I would say yes but most democrats I talk to say no. They believe that the Constitution is an out dated relic of the past with many flaws. (Never mind that our founding fathers provided for change; it’s called Amendments!)  They usually sight the Second amendment and explain that no one needs to have any guns or at least military grade weapons.

 

The second amendment was not included to enable people to hunt but rather to keep a well-regulated militia on call at a moment’s notice to protect our country from foreign invaders.  As our country continues to deteriorate to third world status, the 2nd Amendment may also protect the citizenry from a  tyrannical out of control government.

 

Apparently the following quote is not from Thomas Jefferson but it still illustrates an important concept about laws that forbid the carrying of arms:

 

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -- Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764-- Thomas Jefferson

 

I assert that our founders wrote the Constitution as the direct result of England’s King George the Third’s tyrannical ruling of the American colonies.  They wisely incorporated the Bill of Rights, separation of power with the establishment of the Executive, Legislature and Judicial branches of the government with a bicameral congress; the House represented the people and the senate represented the states.

 

They even passed the tenth amendment to make it difficult for the federal government to expand its control over the states. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

 

The President, Congress and the Supreme court  legislating from the bench,  continually pass laws and regulations at the federal level concerning education, drugs, abortion, universal health care, etc.  which is in direct conflict with the Tenth Amendment.  Since the federal government was not specifically given this power to regulate these, it remains the states responsibility.  The Supreme Court should  not even hear cases on these issues because they are not specifically listed in the constitution.

 

If you think of yourself as a “Patriot” who supports individual rights, then you must support the Constitution!  The Patriot Act and the NDAA, National Defense authorization Act, gives the president of the U.S. the authority to deem any American citizen a possible terrorist and hold them and even kill them without any legal counsel.  This should scare the hell out of you!  This completely abolishes the "Bill Of Rights."  (The first 10 amendments to the Consitution) Those legislators who voted for this are certainly not abiding by their oath.

 

Should we start impeachment proceedings against all members of congress. who don’t score 75% and above when voting for bills before congress?

What will replace our current failed monetary system?

Consider the nation’s current debt of $19+ Trillion.  At the end of Clintons reign it was $5.8 Trillion and Bush $11.9.  Does anyone believe this trend can continue?

 

When the dollar does collapse, we will most likely be forced to either accept (1) electronic currency, (2) the International Monetary Fund’s currency basket or (3) a gold and/or silver backed currency.  Adoption of anyone of these three proposals will only solve the problem for the bankers at the expense of the people. 

 

Contrary to popular belief, the only time when gold or silver, or paper money backed by it is needed, is when our country is not producing something that our international trading partners want to purchase.  If they want to purchase heavy machinery we produce, of course they will accept our paper money, even though it is not backed by precious metals, and use it to purchase these items.  If all we manufacture is hamburgers, they will demand gold and silver as payment for their sales to the United States because we would have nothing of value for them to purchase.

 

Paper money’s function is merely a score keeper and it keeps our economy operating in an efficient manner.  The amount of gold or silver in the bank, under your mattress or still in the ground has nothing to do with the amount of money needed to conduct commerce.

 

Simple illustration: To hold a room, a salesman lays a $100 bill on the hotel clerk’s desk and goes up the steps to inspect the room. The clerk quickly hands the $100 bill to the maid for payment of earlier services, the maid immediately crosses the street to pay her grocery bill, the grocer crosses the alley to pay the meat cutter and the meat cutter goes to the hotel to pay his $100 debt.  The salesman returns to the desk, picking up his $100 bill, explaining that the room was not exactly what he was looking for.

 

Note that no gold or silver was needed to clear all of these financial transactions!

 

History has proven that paper money without precious metal backing does work as long as the amount printed does not exceed the Gross Domestic Product.  It worked for the American colonies until King George the Third put a stop to it, Abraham Lincoln’s printing of “Green Backs” to finance the Civil War and Adolph Hitler’s issue of “Work Receipts” (money) during WWII.  Of course, this is a highly regarded secret perpetrated by the Banksters.

GMO’S are Safe- Really?

By: Larry Flinchpaugh

May 24, 2016

 

The News Press front page story on Wednesday May 18th says, “Report: GMO foods safe.”  However, there are literally millions of people, including myself, who disagree.

 

GMO’s were deemed safe by The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences. They held two days of discussion over this controversial and political issue. The ad-hoc committee of 18 scientists concluded that genetically modified foods are as safe or safer than conventional food. Twelve of these 18 scientists were critical of GMO manipulation; two others expressed no opinion one way or the other.

 

Doesn’t that mean that only 22% of those scientists in attendance believed that GMO’s are safe? (4/18)

 

There are two important issues concerning GMO’s adverse health effects that need to be addressed.  (1) The FDA doesn’t even test the safety of GMO crops. All GMO foods are assumed to be safe unless there is already evidence to the contrary.  The FDA relies on self-reported data from the companies that manufacture the crops as to their safety. (2) Due to legal and copyright restrictions on GMO patents, independent scientists have to ask companies like Monsanto permission before publishing their research results. Independent studies that have been conducted have shown a range of adverse health effects from reduced fertility to immune system dysfunction, liver failure, obesity, and cancer.

 

People often confuse plant grafting with GMO DNA manipulation. Grafting one type of  tomatoe or say , apple to another type tomato or apple does not involve DNA splicing.  Grafting   is the not the same as genetic modification.  GMO’s (Genetic Modification organisms) is where the DNA of one plant or animal is combined with  the DNA of another plant or animal to make it more resistant to herbicides, gives it the ability to kill insects or  enhances  such traits  as size, color or shelf life.

 

Scientists have discovered how to take the DNA of a virus and combine it with the DNA of corn in such a manner that it makes the insect’s stomach explode when it eats the corn.  Has anyone done a study to see how this explosion affects human’s stomachs?  It seems just as ridiculous to combine the DNA of an elephant with the DNA of corn to get larger ears of corn. {Sic}.

 

Whether you agree or disagree that GMO food is harmful to humans, GMO labeling would at least give you the opportunity to make an informed choice.

 

And most telling of all why the truth about GMO’s has not been revealed is that Michael Taylor, Obama’s “Food Czar” (Deputy Commissioner and a Senior Advisor for Foods at the FDA) refuses to make FDA testing of GMO safety mandatory.  You don’t suppose that’s because he was formerly Vice President of Monsanto?

Has religion

 Interfered with the advancement of humankind

 more

 Than it has contributed to it?  ©

By Larry Flinchpaugh

January 26, 2016

The debate, “Has religion interfered with the advancement of humankind more than it has contributed to it” has been raging on for quite some time.

 

Religious people, by and large, believe that one must have religion to keep one on a moral path with God.  But is this really true?  In 2010, sociologist Phil Zuckerman’s research revealed “that the least religious societies also tend to be the most peaceful, prosperous and equitable, with public policies that help people to flourish while decreasing both desperation and economic gluttony.” *

 

According to a Huffington Post survey, ** “More than half of Britons believe that religion does more harm than good, with less than a quarter believing faith is a force for good.  Even 20% of British people who described themselves as being 'very religious' said religion was harmful to society, and a quarter said atheists were more likely to be moral individuals than religious people.”

 

We can probably blame the main stream media and the internet for this perception that broadcasts everything from Pedophile Catholic priests and protestant Preachers engaged in sexual perversion all the way to Isis beheadings.  It’s difficult for the average person to discern exceptions from the rule. Those who wish to control our thoughts to enhance their own agenda are fully aware of this and take full advantage of man’s weakness in reasoning.

 

To help us understand this question and arrive at a valid answer, we must first understand the purpose of Religion.  Many would say that Religion is necessary to help man lead a righteous and moral life so that he will be properly prepared and rewarded in the next life because of his good deeds and from adhering to the dictates of his religion.

 

Others say that, “Religion is a poison that plagues mankind.”  In other words, religion was created by the powerful elite to control mankind.  This was even more prevalent during the Dark Ages but still exists today in a more covert fashion.  It is no accident that the world’s problems today are centered on the hatred of the major religious groups; Jews, Muslims and Christians.   The average person today is unaware how they have been manipulated to believe that the war against terrorism is necessary and that all Muslims are bad.

 

Throughout history, religion has done much harm for the advancement of knowledge. During the Medieval Dark Ages, the Catholic Church destroyed vast amounts of knowledge by burning countless libraries, books, and anything else that they deemed damaging to the church’s ideology. This censorship of knowledge was a way of suppressing knowledge in order to give them more power and control over the uneducated masses.

 

 

  • It appeared that every Christian holiday and story associated with Jesus had been taken from older religions.
  • Jesus did not become God until 325 AD when King Constantine forced the Bishops at the Council of Nicaea to accept the “Trinity” doctrine where the prophet Jesus was the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.  After all, the Christian prophet Jesus had to be God or the Christians would be worshiping a man, same as those nasty Pagans. Jesus did not become God until 325 AD and even that was decided on a narrow vote of the Bishops.
  • Christians made up holidays that fit their god on existing Pagan holidays.
  • The spread of Christianity was done by converting Pagans or killing them.
  • Christianity has caused much suffering throughout history by imprisoning or killing those that did not believe in Christian ideology. Galileo was ordered to turn himself in to the Holy Office to begin trial for holding the belief that the Earth revolves around the Sun, which was deemed heretical by the Catholic Church.
  • Many of the Popes were evil and perverted men in the history of mankind.  The crimes they committed are so terrible they can’t even be taught in schools.
  • The gospels were written by unknown authors after 70 CE and possibly maybe even decades later.  This lapse of time allowed the “Myths” to grow.  All four gospels were first mentioned by name in 180 CE, by Irenaeus of Lyons.
  • The Apostle Paul never actually met Jesus in person.  Rather he had a “vision” of Jesus which has all the earmarks of an epileptic brain seizure.  It is now known that epilepsy can cause religious delusions. Whether true or false, there were people at that time who were accusing Paul of lying, because he attempted to defend himself in Romans 3:5-8.
  • It appears that the Gospel writers were writing fiction.  It is obvious they were attempting to fulfill scriptural prophesy, because they got it wrong in many instances.
  • Matthew and Luke disagree on the year and other details of Jesus' birth, including his lineage. 
  • Matthew and Luke disagreed on Jesus' ancestry, including even his grandfather. (Matthew 1:16, Luke 3:23).  The lists in Matthew and Luke differ from 1 Chronicles 3.  Note that even listing Jesus' male ancestry disagrees with the doctrine of a virgin birth which was added later in the myth-making process. 
  • Most people would agree that human beings exaggerate, misinterpret, or wrongly remember events.  Add a couple thousand years to a story and the problem only multiplies.  A fairy tale told 2,000 years ago doesn’t become the truth with the passage of time.
  • Many early Christians admitted that the story of Jesus was a myth. They argued with the pagans around 150 CE that their mythical story about the first born of God,  produced without sexual union, and that , Jesus Christ, their teacher, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended into heaven was not any different  from what the Pagans  believed regarding those whom they regarded as the  son of Zeus.
  • Because religious lies were so prevalent in early Christian church history, there was even a term for  this.  It was called “Pious Fraud.”

There is much proof that most religious beliefs are merely Myth and Fantasy.  This wouldn’t matter if it weren’t for all the death and destruction that has taken place because of these beliefs.

 

One constantly hears that the Jews are Gods chosen people.  This is another Myth which is causing death and destruction throughout the world.  If this were true, doesn’t that make God a racist?  If I had been at the foot of the mountain, instead of Moses, and God gave me the Ten Commandments and I was responsible for recording this historical event, short fat bald headed men would have been Gods chosen people.  Even if you believe the myth about Jews being the chosen ones, it can’t mean that God condones all of the atrocities the Zionist atheist Jews commit against the Palestinians.

 

Just because you are a Jew does not mean you are a religious Jew who follows the teachings of the Talmud.  It simply means that at least your mother was a Jew.  The leaders of Israel of today are not true religious Jews with Biblical ancestors.  They are Jews in name only, JINO, mostly atheist, that have hijacked the Jewish faith and who masquerade as religious Jews.  The majority of Jews today are related to the Asiatic warriors that joined the Jewish faith in the 7th Century in the Caspian Sea area.  They are called Khazarian Jews and are not related to the Biblical  Jews in any way.

 

The elite controllers of our planet use the ignorance of the masses against them.  It is to their benefit to keep us ignorant because the same mindset that makes us believe in Religious Fairy Tales is the same mindset that allows them to control the mass’s reasoning ability with lies and propaganda through the mainstream media.

 

We accept our plight in world affairs and truly believe that there will always be wars and rumors of wars. (Mark 13:7)  Let’s not allow this Biblical fairy tale or those mentioned in Revelations to be self-fulfilling prophecies.

 

At about 20 years of age, I began to question my Christian upbringing.  One of my first questions was, “Was Jesus a real person or just a fairy tale?  At the time I was too busy with college and thinking about marriage to spend much time pursuing an answer.  As I got older and with the help of the internet in the 1990’s, I discovered several inconsistencies concerning religious doctrine that pretty well provided me with the answer I had been looking for.  The Jesus story is a myth.  Instead of referring to it as “The Greatest Story Ever told” it should be “The Greatest Story Ever Sold.”

 

If I were a Christian, I would be ashamed of the Old Testament claiming it is the word of God; at least my God.  How could the Bible be divinely inspired when it says that gays and lesbians should be put to death, women should not speak in public, if your child talks back to you, you are supposed to kill them, and if you find on your wedding night that your bride is not a virgin, you are supposed to kill her and per her body on her father’s doorstep? What about requesting God to stop the sun so the battle of Jericho could continue? Didn’t God know that the earth rotates on its axis and revolves around the sun?

 

My Christians friends will say, all those examples are in the Old Testament and my Church mainly follows the New Testament.  Then I reply that in Matthew 5:18, the New Testament,  Jesus says, “I did not come to change the Old Testament prophets’ one iota or one tittle. The person who wins a Bible argument is the one who is better at cherry picking it for the most persuasive answer.

 

My personal view is that Religion has helped mankind a little but has hurt mankind a great deal more than it has helped.  No. I am not an Atheist.  I like to think I am a spiritual person rather than a church going religious person.  When asked what my religious preference is, I reply that I am a Deist.  In other words, I believe in a Creator but that the Creator does not interfere in the lives of man. 

 

I cannot explain where I came from, what my true purpose in life is or what happens to me when I die.  No matter how many hours one has spent on the mountain top meditating or how many seminary degrees one has, they can’t answer these questions either.  Anyone who claims they can, is a fraud.
