Watching America Go Down.

I don't follow Alex Jones but maybe I'm going to start.  He seems to have connections that make him less than completely trustworthy, and he has the reputation of a conspiracy thinker, so for those reasons I've avoided him, but I just watched this recent video which echoes my own feelings so well I'm going to post the link to it.  

He does get into some topics I can't judge, and toward the end he gets into stuff about how our food is being poisoned and that sort of thing, which to my mind spoils his presentation, so that's a caveat (not that I know whether there's any truth to it or not I must admit).  But the rest is about taking away our guns and I know that's a genuine looming reality.  I know too many ordinary "liberals" who think it's a great idea to destroy the Second Amendment and actually force the other half of the nation who don't agree with them into submitting to their political agenda.  Forced confiscation of guns, government agencies arming for something big, government troops gearing up to fight US the People, American citizens!  While your average liberal denies such a thing is possible.

The New World Order is a huge black cloud in the background of all this too, its movers and shakers no doubt pulling the strings on the American situation as well.  There are of course liberals who don't see anything wrong with a World Government, ai yi yi yi yi, how bad can things get?  (A lot worse than I could ever have dreamed even though we've been seeing it coming for years, and so much worse yet to come it seems even than what we're seeing unfold before our eyes.  And we just sit here and watch it come too, not really knowing what to do or not having any clear means to do anything about it anyway.)

And maybe the most depressing thing of all is that the CHURCHES aren't responding to the threat.  Oh here and there some are, some pastors are speaking out, some discernment ministries are raising up warnings.  But so little for such a huge threat.  I hope I'm wrong but I have the impression that Christians are for the most part just going along having church as usual, with their thoughts more on their own private lives than the real dangers looming over our heads.  Politics of course occupies many and maybe even with more sense of urgency these days, but the usual political solutions couldn't even rise to the level of a Band-aid on the problems we're seeing building up. 

As Alex Jones says in the video, we need people seeing what's coming and standing up and shouting about it at the top of our lungs. 

I turn on Christian radio and hear the usual messages, the usual sermons, the usual awful music.  Good enough messages for some other time.  The occasional note of warning, but only from a speaker here and there.  The whole radio station should be shouting the warnings by now, I think.  And the churches.

But the churches are doctrinally compromised these days and not strong enough in the fundamentals to be awake to much that's going on.  Doctrinal blindness is going to lead to general blindness.  So we've got these "heaven" stories for instance that it seems some true Christians actually believe.  I have to write more on these as I've been reading more myself on it.  It's SO sad.   Then there's that History Channel program about the Bible I just started hearing about.  That's not the Bible at all, just a bunch of children's stories, rewritten for political correctness even.  Yet Bill O'Reilly calls the program "fundamentalist?"  Well, his "Christian" beliefs are shaped by Catholicism which doesn't even support the book of Genesis any more, so he knows nothing and yet his opinion is going to influence others.  So is that Bible program itself which is more compatible with Catholicism than with Biblical fundamentalism anyway, such are the ironies we are seeing right and left these days. 

I'm depressed.  A Christian isn't supposed to be depressed, but I'm depressed.  I want to write more about all these things and I'm too depressed to do it right now.

Setting us up for the police state

Been hearing for some time now from a number of sources how various government agencies have been arming themselves to an extraordinary degree, all during this period of stepped-up assault on the Second Amendment in the effort to take OUR guns away from us. 

The most depressing part is the supposed use of pictures of ordinary Americans as targets.   Those who want to take away our guns don't seem to mind leaving us vulnerable to be targets for the very forces the Second Amendment was intended to protect us from.  Of course some of them are no doubt ignorant of all this, won't believe it anyway, just "right wing propaganda," right? 

But even the targets themselves don't seem to be paying attention.  Got this in email this morning, seems like a good one to post: 

Wake Up Christians indeed!
For example, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has purchased over 2 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition (enough to wage a 30-year war); the DHS has purchased over 7,000 AR-15s. The DHS calls them Personal Defense Weapons (PDW). These are the same semi-automatic rifles with high capacity magazines that when you and I buy them are called “assault rifles.”
