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!
