Racing Towards The Tribulation

The speed at which the coming Tribulation is approaching is stunning. This doesn't even need explanation - we all see it and it's very obvious. We also know that birth pains, particularly at the terminal stages will not slow down. Brace yourselves, this pace will pick up more and more steam as we head towards the Tribulation. Of course, if the Tribulation is near, then so is the gathering up of the Church Saints - so the time to obey Luke 21:28-31 is now - we should be looking up towards Jesus and not "down" here where carnage and anarchy rules the day. 

Also worth remembering (again) - the beginning of the Tribulation won't be analogous to flipping a switch - a "switch" that would take us from a free and independent society, immediately into a world rule by the antichrist. No. It is a generation of progressive loss of freedom and increasing tyranny. We are witnessing that firsthand today. 

The first several articles reveal where we are, as a "society" and it is exactly what we would predict as the shadow of the Tribulation looms large:

[This one is worth reading in full]

“Until they become conscious, they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious.”— George Orwell

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

It’s a shell game intended to keep us focused on and distracted by all of the politically expedient things that are being said—about militarized police, surveillance, and government corruption—while the government continues to frogmarch us down the road toward outright tyranny.

Unarmed citizens are still getting shot by militarized police trained to view them as the enemy and treated as if we have no rights. Despite President Obama’s warning that the nation needs to do some “soul searching” about issues such as race, poverty and the strained relationship between law enforcement and the minority communities they serve, police killings and racial tensions are at an all-time high

Americans’ private communications and data are still being sucked up by government spy agencies. The USA Freedom Act was just a placebo pill intended to make us feel better without bringing about any real change. As Bill Blunden, a cybersecurity researcher and surveillance critic, points out, “The theater we’ve just witnessed allows decision makers to boast to their constituents about reforming mass surveillance while spies understand that what’s actually transpired is hardly major change.”

Taxpayer dollars are still being squandered on roads to nowhere, endless wars that do not make us safer, and bloated government agencies that should have been shut down long ago. A good example is the Transportation Security Administration, which, despite its $7 billion annual budget, has shown itself to be bumbling and ineffective.

And military drills are still being carried out on American soil under the pretext of training soldiers for urban warfare overseas. Southeastern Michigan, the site of one of the many military training drills taking place across the country this summer, has had Black Hawk helicopters buzzing its skies and soldiers dressed for combat doing night combat drills in abandoned buildings around the state.

In other words, freedom, or what’s left of it, is being threatened from every direction. The threats are of many kinds: political, cultural, educational, media, and psychological. However, as history shows us, freedom is not, on the whole, wrested from a citizenry. It is all too often given over voluntarily and for such a cheap price: safety, security, bread, and circuses.

This is part and parcel of the propaganda churned out by the government machine. That said, what we face today—mind manipulation and systemic violence—is not new.

 What is different are the techniques used and the large-scale control of mass humanity, coercive police tactics and pervasive surveillance. As we have seen with the erection of the electronic concentration camp, there is virtually no escaping the invisible prison surrounding us. Once upon a time, one could run and hide or duck into a cave, but that is no longer feasible as caves are quite scarce, and those running the camp have their eyes watching everything.

Moreover, we are presented with the illusion that we act of our own volition when most of the time we are being watched, prodded, and controlled. “The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative,” Aldous Huxley stated. “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible.”

In fact, with the merger of the Internet and the corporate state, unless you are alert and aware, it will be increasingly difficult to discern the difference between freedom and enslavement. With the methods of mind manipulation available to the corporate state, the very nature of democratic government has been changed. Again, as Aldous Huxley writes:

[T]he quaint old forms—elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of nonviolent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial . . . Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.

To many, the situation seems hopeless. But is it?

From the day you’re born until the day you die, the choices you exercise are very limited. You don’t choose to be born or choose what sex you are or who your parents are or where you live. When you are a child, you are told what to do, and when you enter school, you sit plastered to a desk and are taught what others demand you should know. Yes, the indoctrinating process begins on day one.

Then there are the rules, the endless rules. If you say the wrong word, write the wrong story or wear the wrong clothes, you can get thrown out of school or even arrested. You live where you are told and eat what others think you should eat. As you grow older, this list expands into employment, marriage and so on. In other words, your so-called reality is socially constructed. It is predetermined for you, and if you step out of line and disagree with what the current society deems proper, you will be ostracized. If you speak your mind to the governing authorities, you might find yourself behind bars.

The point is that in order to develop a compliant citizenry, people must be forced to live in a mental matrix of words, ideas, ideologies, and teachings that are designed to make us conform. “As the Matrix in the movie was used to facilitate the exploitation of humans,” writes author Henry H. Lindner, “so the current ideological Matrix was created for, and serves to exploit us, turning us into unthinking workers and consumers—slaves of the ruling elite who themselves are trapped in the Matrix.” In fact, “few of us are able to escape the Matrix. We do not even know it exists.”

For there to be any hope of real change, you’ll have to change how you think about yourself, your fellow human beings, freedom, society, and the government. This means freeing your mind, realizing the truth, and unlearning all the myths you have been indoctrinated with since the day you were able to comprehend language.

First, we must come to grips with the reality that the present system does not foster freedom. It denies freedom and must be altered. “Our authoritarian system is based on cruelty and control—it increasingly drives natural love and feelings from our society and produces violence and greed,” Lindner recognizes. “Our society is deteriorating morally and intellectually. This system cannot be reformed.”

We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. . . .. The object of power is power.

Second, voting is practically worthless. “In principle, it is a great privilege,” Aldous Huxley recognized. “In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty.”

We live in a secretive surveillance state that has virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. As Jordan Michael Smith, writing for the Boston Globe, concludes about the American government:

There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.

Moreover, voting is a way to keep the citizenry pacified. However, many Americans intuitively recognize that something is wrong with the way the electoral process works and have withdrawn from the process. 

That’s why the government places so much emphasis on the reassurance ritual of voting. It provides the illusion of participation.

Third, question everything. Don’t assume anything government does is for the good of the citizenry. Again, that is not the purpose of modern government. It exists to perpetuate a regime. Remember the words of James Madison, considered the father of the U.S. Constitution: “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.” Power corrupts. And as the maxim goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Fourth, materialism is a death knell to freedom. While it may be true that Americans are better off than citizens of other nations—we have jobs, food, entertainment, shopping malls, etc.—these are the trappings meant to anesthetize and distract us.

Fifth, there is little hope for any true resistance if you are mindlessly connected to the electronic concentration camp. Remember, what you’re being electronically fed by those in power is meant to pacify, distract, and control you. You can avoid mind manipulations to a large degree by greatly limiting your reliance on electronic devices—cell phones, laptops, televisions, and so on.

Some Americans are beginning to realize that they are slaves and that if they don’t act soon, they will find themselves imprisoned in the electronic concentration camp indefinitely. Mind you, there may not be any chains hanging from the dungeon walls, but it is a prison nonetheless, and we are, without a doubt, inmates serving life sentences.

It is official. There can be no doubt that the majority of individuals sitting in the District of Corruption, including the Supreme Court, have some type of neurotransmitter imbalance, been taken over by aliens, or become possessed by demons. If only those were the case since a cure exists for those three issues. However, these "people" do not have a neurotransmitter imbalance, nor have they been taken over by "body snatchers" or become possessed by demons. Corporations, other governments, and private individuals bought and paid for each one while Obama used blackmail to produce what Americans witness today -- injustice, unlawful and criminal activity, and treason

What has set off today's rant? Well, you name it and I can pretty much rant about it. But, for the sake of my blood pressure and length of the read, I'll focus on Obamacare subsidies being upheld, the "marriage" ruling by the Supreme Court, and the Trade Promotion Authority.

Obamacare. It boggles the mind that people still actually support this nightmare after information surfaced exposing this sanctioned, "lawful," rape of the American public, which will eventually lead to a single payer system read "socialized medicine" and rationed care. If you as a citizen do not purchase this health care insurance like the government declares, you will pay a "penalty," tax or whatever term they decide to call the extortion perpetrated on the public.

While the left jumps and cartwheels all over the place in joy, their tune will change when they are denied care or the authorities deny a loved one when rationing starts. When premiums become exorbitant, and they will over the years, the government will shove the single payer socialized medicine model through declaring "it's our only choice at this time" -- that is, if this country lasts that long as a nation.

The Supreme Court, in another display of stellar "constitutionality," says that sodomite "marriage" is a "right." For the life of me, someone point to somewhere in the Constitution that says "marriage" of anyone is a right. I cannot find it. Do not use the Fourteenth Amendment either. Everyone perverts that one amendment from its original intent to include anything and everything someone imagines as a "right." Since the beginning of time and creation, marriage has been the "union of one man and one woman." God declares it so. Humanity complied.

What the court has said boils down to this. "The government, instituted by men, is over-ruling thousands of years of civilized life. You see, God is wrong. The Bible is wrong. We are government and we are supreme. States aren't competent enough nor are the people to determine the definition of marriage or anything else." Writing that almost made me puke. It's what they are telling every US citizen and every resident of this nation through their ruling.

Every Christian individual in this nation lost his or her guaranteed First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, meaning the Supreme Court "established" through attrition the government has authority over recognition of religious beliefs. Congress did not have to make a law establishing religion; they didn't need to as it appears all branches can make law now. The States will support it or face the wrath of the "almighty" federal government. In other words, Christians got the middle finger from individuals appointed to a bench and our elected government.

Churches will be "forced" to marry sodomites, as that is the sodomite "right," or face punishment at the hands of the central government while the sodomites file a discrimination lawsuit for money damages. Religious freedom will not be a defense because of the Supreme Court ruling. As a Christian, you no longer have the right to exercise your religion freely by practicing what the Bible teaches -- government now has authority to deny you your religious belief. An individual cannot profess to be a Christian and support sodomite "marriage" as the Bible does not recognize it, God condemns it and He warns against sodomite sin. So, the churches have choices to make.

 The "justices" are playing being the divine, picking and choosing what is or is not a "law of nature and of nature's God." These "justices" did not like God's law so they, in their mind, "fixed" it.

Congress passed the Trade Promotion Authority. 

It comes as no surprise there as blackmail placed key members of Congress into Obama's back pocket. Obama, may puke fly in his face, can now negotiate the US away through the Trans-Pacific Partnership to the corporations that have paid him and Congress well to do so. Congress gets a perfunctory "up or down" vote. Whoopee.

Six hundred corporate executives formulated this fiasco called TPP. They drafted it, know what is in it and revise it to their whim; however, neither Congress nor the people can read it or review it in its entirety even though we are expected to abide by it. What part of tyranny do people not get with this?

The TPA affects the Trade in Services Agreement and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership as well. Congress, in a stellar intestinal movement, awarded Obama the authority to sell out America as planned. This entire bin of garbage known as the TPP remains secret for the next six years should it be accepted. Yep. That's right. No one will know exactly what is going on for six years. So much for transparency in government. Corporations become the government under these "free trade" abominations.

Has anyone truly connected the dots yet? Obamacare, slated to fail and morph into socialized medicine under a single payer system, leads to central government control of health care resources. Sodomite "marriage," now a right thanks to the Supreme Court, overruled the Tenth Amendment meaning central government dictates more to the people and States. In addition, the TPA, which might as well be a green light for TISA, TTIP and TPP, authorizes Obama to negotiate "free trade" agreements that further damage our economy and sell out the sovereignty of our nation and citizens to corporations and to declare allegiance for a one-world government. Let that sink in.

The Supreme Court declared central government decides what is a "right" and who has "rights." 

They declared a central government controls the granting of rights and declared government has authority to determine recognition or denial of religious beliefs. Yes, I know they don't have that authority; but, do you see anyone stopping them? How long will it be before the rest go? "His Lowness" and "his sheriff" are busy working on unilateral, executive gun control laws. The government disposed of some others rights quite a while ago.

Anything and everything that is contained in the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, is up for "revision" or "repeal" under all these so-called "free trade" agreements, which is a lead-in to one world government. Ever wonder why they keep throwing around the term "world economy?" It is a ploy to get people of the US into the "world" mindset. With the Supreme Court traitors establishing government as the "supreme" authority, it sets the stage for the one world government to assume control -- the ushering in of totalitarian rule without the recognition of God-given individual rights, the ability to self-govern or the ability to defend against tyranny.

Money and blackmail buys whatever and whomever. It bought the US government, Congress and the Supreme Court (In)Justices -- all the key players needed to destroy the Constitution. If Congress does not approve TPP and the other "free trade" agreements, it will shock me. But, with the Jade Helm "exercises" beginning July 15, the Supreme Court rulings and Congressional actions ring less of coincidence and more of strategic planning.

[As you read this article - consider the parallels to today's "left" (renamed "progressives") and ISIS...The parallels are haunting]

In just the last 72 hours, total P.C. insanity has swept the nation and all its big retailers as howling leftist maniacs have used the label “tolerance” to initiate what can only be called a modern-day book burning and Orwellian censorship of artistic expression:
• A leftist movie critic and member of the new thought police regime has called for banning the movie Gone With the Wind, stating in pure P.C. babbledygook: “The more subtle racism of ‘Gone with the Wind’ is in some ways more insidious, going to great lengths to enshrine the myth that the Civil War wasn’t fought over slavery — an institution the film unabashedly romanticizes.”
• Apple, forever a corporate pusher of the P.C. agenda, has now banned Civil War games from iTunes because those games display the Confederate flag! Revisionist history is alive and well at Apple, it seems, where even factual historical simulations are going to be memory-holed under Apple’s new dictatorial thought control policies. Yes, even works of digital art are no longer “tolerated” at Apple.
• There’s now open talk of recalling all books featuring the Confederate flag on their covers. As now points out, “Many authors have written about the Confederacy and included flags on the covers of their books. Unfortunately, those same authors may be required to spend unnecessary money to revamp their covers to meet the new Amazon standards.”
So now, in the new P.C. America run by the ravenous thought police, you can’t even write about American history if you show the flag! And so the memory-holing begins… the only flag that will soon be “legal” to display in America will, of course, be the gay pride flag…
• The push is now on to bulldoze historical monuments depicting Civil War leaders of the South. As reported by, calls have begun to destroy the Robert E. Lee statue in New Orleans. Yes, history shall be destroyed via bulldozer if the radical leftist thought police have their way.
• Not to be outdone, a CNN thought police operative has now suggested we should destroy the Jefferson Memorial in Washington D.C.! “CNN anchor Ashleigh Banfield this week questioned whether the Jefferson Memorial should be taken down because Jefferson owned slaves,” reports the LA Times. “At the University of Texas, Austin, a public statue of Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, was reportedly vandalized this week with the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Bump the Chumps.'”
The massive vandalism of historical statues by thought control activists has now been initiated. “Statues on the Austin campus of Robert E. Lee, who commanded the Confederate army, and Albert Sidney Johnston, a Confederate general who died during the Civil War, were also vandalized in recent days,” says the LA Times. It’s not just the books that the leftist want to burn now: It’s also the entire record of Southern history! It makes me wonder: will the screaming, zombie-minded leftists also tear down all the historical buildings of the South, brick by brick? Is there any limit to their desire to destroy the fabric of America and replace it with their totalitarian agenda of “obedient tolerance”?

Taking it all one step further, Louis Farrakhan is now suggesting that the American flag needs to come down! Apparently, the American flag is now also a symbol of racism and hatred that the “tolerant” left cannot tolerate. What flag do you suppose they should put in its place? A surrender flag?

Even children’s toys are no longer safe from the thought police. All toy cars from the Dukes of Hazzard television show are now being memory-holed and stripped of the Confederate flag they once carried. As reports, “They’ve been pushing for it for over 150 years and this year the politically correct anti-Confederate flag movement may have finally achieved its ultimate goal. ”

Leftist thought police claim they are the only “tolerant” ones
Astonishingly, this total thought police push for revisionist history and book burning is all taking place under the banner of “tolerance!”

Yep, the “party of tolerance” is now demanding the book burning, the demolition of historical statues, the banning of historical game simulations, the memory-holing of Hollywood movies and even the elimination of the national flag of the United States of America! The political left, which falsely claims to support “the arts” and free expression, is now spearheading its own movement to silence all expression it does not agree with.

And now it’s all so obvious: This isn’t tolerance. This is a new cultural civil war — a brazen attempt to marginalize, demonize and ultimately eliminate all images, symbolism, art and free expression that does not obediently fall in line with the narrative of the political left.

To accomplish their agenda, leftist thought police will destroy art, destroy history and viciously attack anyone who dares point out the total, runaway insanity of what’s really happening right now. Where the left once demanded “tolerance,” it now demands totalitarian obedience.

I reject this insanity, and you should too
Personally, I reject this insanity. Whatever happened to the left’s promise of “diversity” and tolerance? It has vanished virtually overnight, replaced by a new neo-Nazi-like regime ripped right of the dystopian sci-fi film Equilibrium, where all art is criminalized and the citizens are required to take their daily medications to remain calm and “peaceful.”

This is a sad day for this nation. This is the day that I have come to fully realize that we are probably headed for a new Civil War, because the thought police on the radical left truly have no tolerance at all. 

There is no limit to the destruction they seek and the hatred they express for others. They hate America, the American flag, people who go to church, people who legally own firearms and any real diversity of thought. They demand total obedience to their twisted agenda in a classic Orwellian move to banish symbols of southern pride, claiming that the only acceptable “pride” in the new intolerant America is gay pride.

I don’t have anything at all against gay people, but if tolerance doesn’t work both ways, it isn’t tolerance at all. This week, the radical left has proven itself to be a group of thought conformity extremists who have long abandoned any real tolerance and who now seek the absolute destruction of anything they do not condone.

Commentators have missed the real significance of Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissent in the gay marriage case. He calls the decision a judicial “Putsch,” an attempt to overthrow a form of government—ours. His dissent, joined by Justice Clarence Thomas, was written “to call attention to this Court’s threat to American democracy.”

His comment about the Court using the kind of reasoning we find in a fortune cookie is a funny line. But there is much of the Scalia dissent that is not funny and which serves as a warning to the American people about what the Court has done to us.

Scalia understands the power and meaning of words and he chose the word “putsch” for a specific purpose. One definition of the term means “a secretly plotted and suddenly executed attempt to overthrow a government…” Another definition is “a plotted revolt or attempt to overthrow a government, especially one that depends upon suddenness and speed.”

Hence, Scalia is saying this was not only a blatant power grab and the creation of a “right” that does not exist, but a decision that depends on public ignorance about what is really taking place. It is our system of checks and balances and self-rule that has been undermined, he says.

In that sense, he is warning us that we need to understand the real significance of this decision, and go beyond all the commentators talking about “marriage equality” and “equal rights” for homosexuals. In effect, he is saying that the decision is really not about gay rights, but about the future of our constitutional republic, and the ability of the people to govern themselves rather than be governed by an elite panel making up laws and rights as they go.

Scalia’s dissent cannot be understood by listening to summaries made by commentators who probably didn’t read it. Although I may be accused of exaggerating the import of his dissent, my conclusion is that he is calling for nothing less than the American people to understand that a judicial dictatorship has emerged in this country and that its power must be addressed, checked, and overruled.

He says the majority on the court undermined the main principle of the American Revolution—“the freedom to govern themselves”—by sabotaging the right of the people to decide these matters. The Court destroyed the definition of marriage as one man and one woman “in an opinion lacking even a thin veneer of law.” In other words, the Court acted unlawfully and unconstitutionally.

Scalia called the decision “a naked judicial claim to legislative—indeed, super-legislative—power; a claim fundamentally at odds with our system of government.”

Justice Scalia goes on, however, to attempt to explain why this is happening. He basically says, in so many words, that the majority of the Court is un-American, completely out of touch with American traditions and the views of ordinary Americans. He rips the Federal Judiciary as “hardly a cross-section of America,” people from elite law schools, with not a single person from middle-America, and not a single evangelical Christian or even a Protestant of any denomination. He calls the Court, on which he serves, a “highly unrepresentative panel of nine,” that has engaged in “social transformation” of the United States.

More than that, after examining the elite views and backgrounds of the “notorious nine,” he declares that while the American Revolution was a rejection of “taxation without representation,” we have in the gay marriage case, “social transformation without representation.”

One cannot help but think that Scalia wants readers to recall Obama’s promise of the “fundamental transformation” of America, except that in this case Obama has been assisted by five judges who did not represent, or even care about, the views of America as a whole.

Young Americans, who live in a distorted world manufactured by the progressive academia and the deceitful main stream media, have no idea what they are asking for or what they are admiring.
As Michael J. Totten said, "…anti-establishment young people all over the world have Che's face on their walls and their T-shirts. Most of them don't know anything real about the man they admire. They have no idea he was one of the most violently illiberal establishment figures in the Western Hemisphere's history. They admire the image, which is and always has been a fraud."
But we must destroy our own history and all the symbolism attached to it and remake our American past in the fake vision of liberalism that wants to shape the youth of the world into global citizens. The only country that stands in the way is the United States. But this former bastion is crumbling day by day into the dustbin of the former empires. It is falling from within through the work of its elected self-serving representatives and the ignorant and dishonest voters.

Illegal aliens and amnesty must be our number one priority, we are told ad nauseam, they represent a significant and very important voting block for all politicians; money is no object in pleasing them, while benefits to veterans and to the military are being cut.
America is so "unjust" that we must change it and make it like those perfect socialist and bankrupt European countries liberals envy and admire where everyone is "equal" on paper and "social justice" reigns supreme in theory, basking in the glory of failed multiculturalism.
America must change because it has had a good run as an "evil empire," we are told by progressive admirers of Marx, Engels, Stalin, Lenin, and Mao.

Liberals invent new language, force strange labels on us, trans-gender, trans-racial, trans-normal, trans-sexual, trans-human, just add the prefix "trans." Liberals are normalizing the abnormal, marginalizing the majority of us as irrelevant. Only then will we achieve the sought-after "equality" and "justice" under the sun.
Will we then be a perfect society built in the progressive image of utopian Marxism with citizen slaves to the Orwellian government where some animals are more "equal" than others?
Or is this just a distraction to do the bidding of large corporations and pass the basement-guarded Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a disguised giveaway of our sovereignty (under the excuse of globalist trade) to a foreign entity composed of a "committee" nobody knows, elects, can talk about, reign in, nullify, or supersede?

Incredible articles today Scott! One article mourned the millennials who are clueless what they embrace and for what is coming. They really don't know what we are losing. It's hard not to grieve but we know this is not our home! The speed that these events are occurring is crazy. It surely won't be long now. Maranta ha!

Yes- the speed at which things are happening is stunning. absolutely. I watch these things in utter amazement
