Is simulation theory compatible with enclosed cosmology? Does it help explain many of the still unresolved questions of our reality? Or is it just another layer of deception…?

InfoWars: Video Interview with Bev Harris of Black Box Voting and Election Fraud — Some Things You Can Do!

black-box-votingBev Harris founded blackboxvoting.org in 2003, when she snooped around some trash cans outside of a voting station and found irregularities that proved the voting machines had been tampered with.  She made the “Hacking Democracy” documentary exposing how vulnerable the voting system is and how easy it is to manipulate. Lately she has discovered a new twist to the fraud where the voting machines can be manipulated remotely by one person and how Hillary Clinton is primed to use this vulnerability to sway votes in her favor.  This is the latest from her interview with Alex Jones:

Scott Adams and The Week I Became a Target – OR – Shadowbanning by Twitter

[Editor’s note: Least you did not know about ‘shadowbanning’ by twitter and feed stream manipulation by other forms of social media.  Here is a personal report from Scott Adams of Dilbert fame.  There is no such thing as a free lunch!/sc]

The Week I Became a Target

This weekend I got “shadowbanned” on Twitter. It lasted until my followers noticed and protested. Shadowbanning prevents my followers from seeing my tweets and replies, but in a way that is not obvious until you do some digging.

Why did I get shadowbanned?

Beats me.

But it was probably because I asked people to tweet me examples of Clinton supporters being violent against peaceful Trump supporters in public. I got a lot of them. It was chilling.

Late last week my Twitter feed was invaded by an army of Clinton trolls (it’s a real thing) leaving sarcastic insults and not much else on my feed. There was an obvious similarity to them, meaning it was organized.

The Jews In The Attic Test by Joe Huffman (2009)

anne frank writing 1942

The Jews In The Attic Test

To the best of my knowledge I [Joe Huffman] am the originator of this test and the name I use to describe it.  It first came about in 1999 while I was working with Cease Fear (Cease Fear predates The Pink Pistols by about a year although the Pink Pistols is far more successful).  We were putting hand-outs in the shops in the Capital Hill area of Seattle for NRA Refuse to Be A Victim and Home Firearm Safety classes.  The Capital Hill area is well known LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Trans-sexual) community in the Seattle area.  Our goal was to teach people of the LGBT community how to defend themselves against people who would attack them (gay-bashings).

Several of the others and I in Cease Fear were certified NRA firearms instructors and were willing to donate our time to help make their lives safer.  One of the discussions we had amongst ourselves as we walked from shop to shop was how to explain to others how important our right to keep and bear arms was to our freedom.  People tend to understand the importance of freedom of speech and the freedom of the press pretty well and some of the other rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.  But the Second Amendment was and is viewed as unimportant and perhaps even counterproductive by many in today’s society.

I explained to the others in my little band of activists that I looked at all laws that restricted freedom with a view to the impact it would have in a worst case scenario of our government run amok.  Will this law make it difficult or impossible to protect innocent life from a government intent on their imprisonment or death?  Although I pretty much made everything up on the spot I told them I called this test my “Jews In The Attic Test”.

Furthermore I told them that if it fails this test no further discussion is really needed, the law must be opposed in the most vigorous manner possible.

Some laws that fail the test and why:

bullet Government mandated ID cards and the authority to demand them at any time.  The oppressed class will be unable to masquerade as a member of the neutral or oppressor classes.
bullet Searches without probable cause.  Imagine you are attempting to smuggle your “Jews in the attic” to a safer hiding place.  If the police at the roadblock can search all vehicles then you and your precious cargo are headed to the “work camps”.
bullet Government monopoly on medical care.  This is a bit surprising — isn’t it?  If it is illegal for you to pay someone for anonymous health care then how can your “Jews in the attic” receive health care?
bullet Firearm or firearm owner registration.   The registration information can be used to confiscate the firearms used to protect innocent life — as it was under the 1938 Weapons Control Act in Nazi Germany.
bullet Elimination or severe restriction of anonymous financial transactions.  The purchase of food and other supplies for your “Jews in the attic” would show up in the records as being excessive compared to what your needs were.  Just as power consumption records are used today to catch home marijuana growers.

I continue to use this test to this day and advocate its widespread use by others.

What You Should Focus On…

What you should Focus on

I love simple graphics that make a clear point.  If you need more help figuring out what is in the piece where the two circles intersect, make two lists:

  • Things that matter
  • Things you can control (or at least think you can have some ability to impact)

Anything on both lists is something you should consider focusing on!

Of course if you want to add one more filter — seek the Lord on the matter and make sure it lines up with both His word and His leading in your life.  That will help you hone in on the priorities for right now!

Is the Lord in the Storm with You?

482px-Rembrandt_Christ_in_the_Storm_on_the_Lake_of_GalileeA good friend of mine, brother in the Lord, mentor, teacher, prayer warrior and encourager in spiritual matters all, Morris Salge, has taken on the task of writing some devotionals for disciples of Christ in business primarily (but life in general).  I have had the distinct honor of getting to review these devotionals and help a bit with the website.  It is an honor, but it has also been hard, as they are not for those who are not seeking Him above earthly treasures.  If you want devotionals that tickle the ears and make you giggle skip these.  If you want to find and hear the Lord above all the noise around us, then dig in and prepare to be challenged.

Is the Lord in the Storm with you?  

Are you listening to Him or are you trying to steer the boat?

Christ, the Disciple and Business

The posts linked to this website all focus on the realities established Christians face in the business world.  By “established.” I mean Christians whose faith is at least 4-5 years old regardless of whether they have grown spiritually or not.  Those who have grown, I hope, will find affirmation in the essays.  Those 4-5 years or more past salvation that have not grown will find loving challenges written to them.

A Conservative — Really?

A Conservative — Really?

by Margaret Snow

 

After many years of following politics and being a active voter and frankly, a citizen activist who actually follows legislation, reads bills, and spends time lobbying my legislators for what I believe in — I am quite amused that here in Oklahoma politicians ALL seem to be running as “Conservative.” I make no apologies for being a Constitutional Conservative, a Fiscal Conservative, and a Social Conservative in my views. The references that I find helpful in forming what I believe are on the nightstand next to my bed. They are the Bible, the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, plus an old US History book written before revisionist history was introduced into our schools.

Truth via CrossExamined

Conservative or Progressive

 

If you don’t agree with me, I will still love you but for goodness sake, “Who do you think you are fooling when you call yourself a conservative?” I think the answer to that very question could be a lot of people are confused about the fact that they are likely to be “Progressives” rather than Conservatives.

 

If you are a Progressive, please have the integrity to claim it for those that agree with your positions. Claiming verbally now as a candidate to be conservative will not override your actual views and the positions you will take when elected. Most of your supporters will potentially be one-issue voters who don’t want to look past the agenda they feel will benefit them personally. Many of them are looking for immediate gratification regarding a particular issue that they are passionate about. They will care less or even refuse to consider, the larger picture of how a variety of positions taken today will affect the freedoms and prosperity of generations to come.

 

Being truly conservative requires applying the same liberty standards to every issue and doing it all the time even when we have to consider giving up something in the present that might benefit us personally.

 

Ideas Have Consequences

 

As an observer, I have come to the conclusion that voters are confused about what a real conservative is and even more confused about their own conservative status. It seems many voters are actually confused to a point where they fail to recognize that when a progressive claims to be conservative, they verbalize support for rights and liberties for citizens but take positions that are very much at odds with conservative values. Here are some examples of this type of belief system:

 

  • Government knows better how to spend your money than you do and in order to balance a budget, government just needs a few more tax dollars to be sure its spent right and the right programs are funded.
  • Progressives might agree that we should be afforded our 2nd amendment right but feel government may just know better than the citizenry how far that right goes.
  • Progressives say that we should have private property rights but at a certain point, they feel government knows better than we do how to manage the property we own and love.
  • Progressives think that government knows what is better for our children than we as parents do.

 

Truth in Labeling

 

Some would argue that this explanation is too extreme to describe the views of their particular candidate and that there are exceptions, but in reality a conservative believes that if we give government an inch today (or a 1% tax) they will be taking a mile (or making it 30%) in the future. I would like to see more truth in labeling. If you really are a Progressive then own it. If you really are a Conservative and get elected, please don’t open the door even an inch because we all know where that leads.

 

Not even in my lifetime have I actually been able to experience a period when our government has held to the guidelines that our founding fathers wrote in the most perfect document to ever govern a country. I do believe though, that there are many, like myself, who actually come close to an understanding of that precious concept and have a true desire to preserve liberty for those we will leave behind.

She attributes the foundation for her philosophy on life as being engrained growing up on a dairy farm with hard work ethic and responsibility. Along with her Dad one of the most influential people in her life was her grandmother who lived in the home until she was ten years old. Spending many days literally side by side with her grandmother who was extremely creative, a wonderful story teller, a real historian, and a valuable instructor probably influenced Margaret’s interest in both history and current events throughout the years.

Several years ago Margaret along with her husband Mike returned to Oklahoma to live on a small portion of the old farm where Margaret grew up. Mike recently retired and although Margaret still works on select projects for her clients, today they are enjoying what they consider “the good life” and have opened a real country store on the property.
