A Flood of Wisdom...or simply a man-size Flood

We clearly see the broad sweep of single-mindedness within the Trump hardcore.. What we must get our minds around is that Trump is merely the tip of the iceberg.  We can stare endlessly at this glittering lure bobbing this way and that with each passing second of the day...….but remember all the while the truly vicious shark pack watches carefully from a distance.




Now and then a dose of grace and laughter bring relief, reality, and sanity.

The Present War Will Determine Just Who Is Naive

The Only Threat Greater than Greed is Naive Wagering on the Pretense of Innocence. 


It has forever been the first and last criticism of democracy—democracy is hayseed naive.  Example:  Listen up all you hayseed—you are being duped by the elite hypocrites who care only for themselves.  No! You must believe in us—the true stand-tall thug enforcers of the Real Truth!

Face the facts: We are at war with those who claim allegiance to "Law and Order" while undermining the Constitution every chance they get..   

Are the traitors praying for fair weather in Fall elections? must be kidding!.

The traitors' strategy will keep the fogs of war at full blast until naive baby chicks are scattered about crying over their lost nests.

We need to determine strategy and tactics to make damn sure in defeat the traitors limp away much less naive about the depth of our absolute commitment to democracy and its underlying values.

Talk, talk, talk!!!   Hello, we are at WAR.

All is Fair in Love and War.?...(NO !!! All is Fair in HATE and ARROGANT MACHINATIONS)

Ethnic bioweapon (Begin quotation from Wiki)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An ethnic bioweapon (biogenetic weapon) is a type of theoretical bioweapon that aims to harm only or primarily people of specific ethnicities or genotypes.


One of the first modern fictional discussions of ethnic weapons is in Robert A. Heinlein's 1942 novel Sixth Column (republished as The Day After Tomorrow), in which a race-specific radiation weapon is used against a so-called "Pan-Asian" invader[citation needed].
Genetic weapons[edit]

In 1997, U.S. Secretary of Defense William Cohen referred to the concept of an ethnic bioweapon as a possible risk.[1] In 1998 some biological weapon experts considered such a "genetic weapon" plausible, and believed the former Soviet Union had undertaken some research on the influence of various substances on human genes.[2]

In its 2000 policy paper Rebuilding America's Defenses, think-tank Project for the New American Century (PNAC) described ethnic bioweapons as a "politically useful tool" that US adversaries could have incentive to develop and utilize.[3]

The possibility of a "genetic bomb" is presented in Vincent Sarich's and Frank Miele's book, Race: The Reality of Human Differences, published in 2004. These authors view such weapons as technically feasible but not very likely to be used. (page 248 of paperback edition.)

In 2004, The Guardian reported that the British Medical Association (BMA) considered bioweapons designed to target certain ethnic groups as a possibility, and highlighted problems that advances in science for such things as "treatment to Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases could also be used for malign purposes".[4]

In 2005, the official view of the International Committee of the Red Cross was "The potential to target a particular ethnic group with a biological agent is probably not far off. These scenarios are not the product of the ICRC's imagination but have either occurred or been identified by countless independent and governmental experts."[5]\

In 2008, the US government held a congressional committee, ‘Genetics and other human modification technologies: sensible international regulation or a new kind of arms race?’, during which it was discussed how “we can anticipate a world where rogue (and even not-so-rogue) states and non-state actors attempt to manipulate human genetics in ways that will horrify us”.[6]

In 2012, The Atlantic wrote that a specific virus that targets individuals with a specific DNA sequence is within possibility in the near future. The magazine put forward a hypothetical scenario of a virus which caused mild flu to the general population but deadly symptoms to the President of the United States. They cite advances in personalized gene therapy as evidence.[7]

In 2016, Foreign Policy magazine suggested the possibility of a virus used as an ethnic bioweapon that could sterilize a "genetically-related ethnic population."[8] *(End quotation from Wikipedia)



(What if universal testing in America revealed biased racial specific occurrence due entirely to the nature of the manufactured virus itself?  A plea to our friends in China...Maybe you could help us out here?)

Feast Together in Creative Enterprise.....OR See Sharks Transform into Piranhas

First, In God's Intercession of Creative Enterprise We Find Providence and Our Better Selves

We must recognize that ego-induced blindness makes fools of geniuses.  Sort of like "Relax, this little specially made virus WILL NEVER jump outside of the Chinese Race." ......OOPS!!!!

Two Propositions to Consider

Two Propositions to Consider

1) The ability to petition for forgiveness from felt need has as PREREQUISITE realized abilities in empathy and love.

2) Heart-to-Heart conversation characterized by vulnerable honesty has as its PREREQUISITE the appreciation that fundamental human relationship is based upon a conviction that all humankind are created equal.

That is, when honesty is essential-- accretions of status and hierarchy are to be considered totally irrelevant in intimate consideration of perceived truth. (No one wants to be told what they think--they had rather do that themselves--ballot box case in point.)


I start off with a scene from Evan Almighty: the relevant roles here--the attending man is God and the woman is the wife of a celebrity nut-case.


One reason Abraham Lincoln is so honored in America is that even though burdened by a civil war was able to say in his second inaugural address: 

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Tin-Horn Messiahs with a Serious Case of Self-Hypnosis

Trump Republicans have succeeded in mesmerizing themselves. They believe every word they hype like oratory drunks on a bar-stool holding forth on their obviously irrefutable opinions.

They have confused themselves into thinking their bullshit spin is endorsed by Holy Scripture: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1).

And who else but they themselves could such words more perfectly describe and to which all reality rightly bends? 

Now we well know that sometimes we all can skate fast on thin ice with a modicum of success (sort of like faking it when weaving a lame excuse). But there are times when faking it simply will not cut the mustard.

God has chosen some of his humble servants with super integrity to research tiny structures and processes according to strict verification rules and procedures which are subject to substantiation by other scientists.

Most of us less precise types are sometimes very jealous of these special people (scientists)...and if for the first time thumb through one of their journals--are in for a shock (like when a music dummy stares at a sheet of music).

The Waterloo for this Republican pirate crew of spin doctors was when (in their heady role as Super Gods riding atop their goose-stepping  white stallions) found their far-out drivel hitting the brick wall of Godly fact, Godly Men, and the widespread pain of irrefutable death--none of which is easily varnished over by gold leaf conspiracy theories.

But they will try for they--and they alone--are the legitimate wielders of power (if we can't rule, they say--then no one else will either... and we'll see that happens by stopping at absolutely nothing!)

We Have Nothing to fear…but the ABSENCE of fear Itself !!!!

Maybe you were a far more responsible and rationally driven citizen than I—but my behavior regarding the deadly virus attacking our nation was a lazy-lion yawn..until I felt its red laser focusing directly over my heart.

If you have not read (or listened to) Lincoln on the Verge: Thirteen Days to Washington
By:Ted Widmer YOU SHOULD DO SO WITHOUT DELAY IMMEDIATELY. The foes of the Lord were more than willing to broadly and carefully plan a coup taking over our nation's capitol upon the election of Abraham Lincoln. It was to occur between election and inauguration.

You may think this is over-dramatic now:

Matthew 16:5-12 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

5 - Then his disciples came to him on the other side of the lake, forgetting to bring any bread with them. “Keep your eyes open,” said Jesus to them, “and be on your guard against the ‘yeast’ of the Pharisees and Sadducees!


BUT this is also true of believers!!
Matthew 13:33 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

33 This is another of the parables he told them: “The kingdom of Heaven is like yeast, taken by a woman and put into three measures of flour until the whole lot had risen.”

Yeast in the rising of bread has a broad and in some sense supernatural character. For example, in the movie Evan Almighty we may mistakenly assume God comes on the scene in the second inning when God appears directly to Evan.  But a moment's reflection will reveal a much broader working of the Lord.  For example, why did Evan choose to live in Prestige Crest?  Surely he must have felt free to choose from several other options.

When Lincoln was elected president (but before inauguration) spectacular comet showers filled the skies (see On the Verge). That was a little hint from God (to believers) that His man had won.

 From man's viewpoint the behavior of yeast may look like a well-planned conspiracy of schemers, but in fact it can be God guiding the paths of those who love him (even though these individuals assume they are acting alone).

As an exercise I ask that you consider the personal and social characteristics of those that would be perfectly comfortable with slavery...or today, cannon fodder employees.  What are the delimits and definition of conscience/social conscience for these sad yet resolutely dangerous people?

OK Guardian Angels Make My Day

And this one you know Patriots can't resist

A Handshake of Science and God

(the Enlightenment) a European intellectual movement of the late 17th and 18th centuries emphasizing reason and individualism rather than tradition. It was heavily influenced by 17th-century philosophers such as Descartes, Locke, and Newton, and its prominent figures included Kant, Goethe, Voltaire, Rousseau, and Adam Smith.  (OED  2010, 2016)

Matthew 7:24-27 (PHILLIPS)

To follow Christ’s teaching means the only real security

24-25 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a sensible man who builds his house on the rock. Down came the rain and up came the floods, while the winds blew and roared upon that house—and it did not fall because its foundations were on the rock.

26-27 “And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not follow them can be compared with a foolish man who built his house on sand. Down came the rain and up came the floods, while the winds blew and battered that house till it collapsed, and fell with a great crash.”


Strict sabbatarianism is again rebuked (Luke 14:1-11 (PHILLIPS)

14 1-3 One Sabbath day he went into the house of one of the leading Pharisees for a meal, and they were all watching him closely. Right in front of him was a man afflicted with dropsy. So Jesus spoke to the scribes and Pharisees and said, “Well, is it right to heal on the Sabbath day or not?”

4-5 But there was no reply. So Jesus took the man and healed him and let him go. Then he said to them, “If an ass or a cow belonging to one of you fell into a well, wouldn’t you rescue him without the slightest hesitation even though it were the Sabbath?”


A lesson in humility (Luke 14:7-11)

7 Then he gave a little word of advice to the guests when he noticed how they were choosing the best seats.

8-11 “When you are invited to a wedding reception, don’t sit down in the best seat. It might happen that a more distinguished man than you has also been invited. Then your host might say, ‘I am afraid you must give up your seat for this man.’ And then, with considerable embarrassment, you will have to sit in the humblest place. No, when you are invited, go and take your seat in an inconspicuous place, so that when your host comes in he may say to you, ‘Come on, my dear fellow, we have a much better seat than this for you.’ That is the way to be important in the eyes of all your fellow-guests! For everyone who makes himself important will become insignificant, while the man who makes himself insignificant will find himself important.”


Like virtually all churches, our local church members are following the news about the rapidly spreading and contagious deadly virus sweeping the world.  No one says that since this is God’s Country, we are blissfully protected by Him so the findings of science are just politically motivated false news.  That is, this unromantic and ruthless march of death contagion does not allow us to hug our childhood teddy bears--idealism,  prejudices, or even our deepest convictions about God's love-dovey nature. Rather, we follow the news and do not shun the responsibility to be alert to the insights of science and the medical profession. We must steer by the objectivity and integrity of science, not by the obfuscating haze of spin doctor drivel. In this war, God will surely favor the earnest players--those ready to challenge a deadly foe in a very high-stakes competitive game.  

It’s enough to make us hope that someday many other matters—such as saving our planet from human abuse; the proper size and role of government in democracies--could be  clarified by common but less sensational revelation.



He thanks you guys
