HOW TECHNOLOGY CAN OPPRESS

Every once in a while I get my photo albums out, and end up a little discouraged because there are no recent pictures there. With the advent of digital technology I’m way behind getting prints made of my pictures. My Mom says, can you make pictures for me. No, not really; because to do it right, you have to get photo paper, and special ink that isn’t going to fade over time. And then, go ahead and load your pictures on a disc and take them to a photo shop to get prints made– they’re more expensive than it was to get film developed. So, therefore there isn’t much of an impetus to get prints made.
And you know what, I don’t think the Establishment really cares. How many movies have you seen where the protagonist carried a picture that serve as inspiration. They can’t have that.
Their mindset is that photographs don’t last forever, unless they’re properly taken care of. Corbis Corporation (owned by Bill Gates), who have a collection of more than 100 million photographs (such as the Bettmann Archive), store their images 220 feet below ground in a refrigerated former limestone mine at a facility known as Iron Mountain in Boyers, PA. They do this to prevent the deterioration of the pictures in their collection. Since you don’t have the means to do the same thing, your old photographs are slowly degrading, which means that the photographic record of your family, life and memories will eventually fade away. Hence, the technology of digital pictures.
These digital images are stored on computer hard drives, external drives, thumb drives and discs. But to see and share them, you need to have a monitor, and a monitor needs electricity to function.
While we’re at it, let’s talk about eReaders like Kindles, Nooks and Tablets. The rise of this technology has put the bookstores out of business, except for those who made that commercial investment. These gadgets run on rechargeable lithium batteries, and don’t operate for very long before they need to be charged, and you have to plug them in.
As these devices claim a bigger and bigger chunk of the marketplace, publishers are moving in that direction, because, quite frankly, it’s much cheaper to produce an eBook than it is to print, distribute and market a conventional book. As the years go by, less and less physical books (as well as newspapers and magazines) will be available. Even used bookstores have had a difficult time of it (having to concentrate on vintage and rare books), because having an eBook is much more convenient than a real book because it takes up less space, is more easily carried, and it is easier to handle and read.
Hundreds of years ago, only the rich could afford books, and therefore the lower class were pretty much oblivious to anything that was going on. This will be the case again. Yeah, you can read things on your phone, and small inexpensive tablets; but to get a good eReader, screen protector and case is going to run you close to $500. You can have the best, most advanced eReader in the world, but if you don’t have electricity, you’re out-of-luck.
A couple years ago, I read where people had purchased digital copies of George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm,” but it was subsequently discovered that Amazon didn’t have the rights to it, and they were able to pull the book out of everyone’s devices. They credited their customers back, but it goes to show you that your digital library is vulnerable.
As one who studies the Bible, I read what it says in Revelation 13:17 – “And that no man might buy or sell, save he had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of this name.” As a student of end-time prophecy, I believe there is coming a time that Americans will be forced to have a biochip inserted into their hands. They tried to make that part of the Affordable Care Act legislation to supposedly prevent the kind of backlogs faced by the healthcare systems in England and Canada, but were unsuccessful in getting it into the legislation. This technology would enable them to control their citizens. First of all, in a digital society, anyone who refuses to take the chip will not be able to access anything, and thus will not be able to work and buy food. But if a person has the chip, they will be controlled and manipulated into complying. When President Obama signed into law the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which enables our government to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens arrested on American soil without trial or due process, they opened the door to begin exerting that type of control over the people of this country. They’re referred to as “domestic terrorists.” Do you know the type of people the FBI believes may be “domestic terrorists?” People who pay cash, who insist on privacy, who believe they actually have Constitutional rights, are apprehensive of Big-Brother type of surveillance, participate in discussions of the apocalypse and the end-times, exhibit radical Christian beliefs, buy meals-ready-to-eat (MREs) are prepared for disaster, frequent military surplus stores, own guns and buy ammunition, support Ron Paul, a member of a Militia, a Veteran, and Pro-Life.
So, if the government considered you a “domestic terrorist,” all they have to do is click a button and your chip will not be able to access any services. You won’t be able to buy food, buy gas, or go to the doctor. Do you think they’re going to let you have electricity?
Oh, you don’t think that would happen?
I’m sure you’ve heard of Nikola Tesla, he was a genius, mechanical engineer and inventor who was way ahead of his time. In the early 1900s at his Wardenclyffe laboratory near Shoreham, Long island in New York, Tesla built a 187-foot tower that he said would wirelessly transmit electricity. He had already proven he could do it, with experiments in Colorado Springs, where he placed light bulbs into the ground that were illuminated without wires. Basically all you would have to do is to stick your plug into the ground and you would have free electricity. When investor J.P. Morgan (banker and financier) found out that he wasn’t going to make any money from his investment, he refused to consider additional funding, and the tower was eventually torn down because he couldn’t get investors to help him implement the technology. 
Back in 2008, Dr. Steven Greer (medical doctor and ufologist who established CSETI and the Disclosure Project) talked about another gifted inventor whose work as a private citizen was confiscated because of how advanced his research was. He was forced to work on classified projects with the government as a contractor. Greer called him the “most brilliant scientist in the world today” and “someone who knew more than Tesla or Einstein…” He had created a device that produced free renewable energy. When the government realized what he had the capability to do, they shut him down and refused to allow the system to be marketed to the public. This is what was done with Tesla. When Tesla died, even though he was an American citizen, his Papers and Records were confiscated by the FBI under the authority of the Office of Alien Property.
The reason for this is that the government needs to be able to control the energy.
 But really, you have to even think beyond that. The Power Grid in this country has the potential to fail because of a crucial design flaw that occurs when one part of the grid breaks down, causing a cascading failure that would cause the entire grid to progressively collapse. Then there are surges of radiation emanating from solar flares that could cause major power interruptions. An EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack through the denotation of a high altitude nuclear weapon will release a burst of radiation that would interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere to cause massive power outages. And then there could be massive terrorist attacks on the power grid, as well as cyberattacks. Any of these things could occur or be made to happen, depriving us of power; while the Elite would have the power sources they have withheld from us.
There’s nothing wrong with utilizing technology, but I’m not going to allow it to overwhelm me; because if it overwhelms you– it controls you. So, I’ll keep my books, thank you.

The remedy for Faith under fire is Christian Insurrection!

This week finds the Denver City Council hinting that they are not going to allow Chick-fil-A to rent space for a franchise at the Denver International Airport in Colorado because of their adherence to traditional family values. More to the point, they disagree with the company's stand on same-sex marriage. They feel that the profits will fund discrimination, so they consider it a moral issue.

At a time when many Americans are showing support for Donald Trump because they are sick and tired of career politicians not doing anything to change the direction of this country. You are beginning to see people growing a backbone and standing up to godless bureaucrats bent on the destruction of our American way of life and family values.

On the first game of the football season on August 21st, hopefully we've seen the first of many such acts of civil disobedience.

In Laurens County, Georgia, Friday night high school football brought the long-standing tradition of the West Laurens Raider Marching Band playing hymns, and prayer before the game. But in May, the Americans United for Separation of Church and State sent a letter to the West Laurens School Board because there was a complaint about the pre-game prayer and the Band playing the Christian hymn "How Great Thou Art," which they deemed as being unconstitutional because it violated the First Amendment. The Board was counselled by the lawyers to substitute a "moment of silence" instead. However, before their first game, the entire stadium rose to their feet to recite the "Lord's Prayer" in unison. However the band did comply with the atheist's wishes, and instead played "Amazing Grace."

Over in Brandon, Mississippi, the Brandon Bulldog Marching Band plays "How Great Thou Art" as part of their half-time activities. But in 2013 a student sued the School Board over Christian meetings being held on School property. The District settled the case, acknowledging that the student's First Amendment rights were being violated. However, after a Christian minister prayed at an Awards ceremony, in July, U.S. District Court Judge Carlton Reeves (an Obama appointee) ruled the District violated their agreement and fined them, warning that subsequent violations would cost them $10,000. During half-time on Friday night, while the band sat on the sidelines, the spectators themselves actually began singing the hymn in a demonstration that seems to be echoing a frustration by many people that a godless minority in this country has been able to exert their will over traditions that have been in place for decades.

Check out the video on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeI6FYIfOSg (The quality is poor, but you'll get the point.)

These atheists cite the Constitution, and their rights. It's all about their rights. Yeah, I hope you don't believe that. Please tell me you don't believe that. It's actually about changing our way of life. It's about taking God out of our society. It's about lessening and ultimately eliminating the influence of Christianity in this country.

Here, let me prove it.

Remember the 'Women's Lib' movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when women were burning their bras because they wanted they same rights as men to work instead of being stuck in the traditional role of a homemaker? It was all about their rights, and we believed it. You know what it really was? It was all about creating societal and peer pressure to get the wife to go to work. With the husband and wife now working, they were spending less time with their children, and the public school system was able to exert more influence over their children to turn them into mindless zombies, brainwashed to trust their government, not question their government, and be good little citizens. Today, you can see the result. They don't elect a president based on the issues or experience, they vote for him because he is black, because he is cool, because he can string a few lines together and sounds intelligent while he promises that the government is going to take care of them.

Trump continues to puzzle the pundits as he garners more support, rises higher in the polls, and continues to draw thousands to his rallies. The politicians in Washington better start taking notice, because this might be the year that the people finally rise up and take back their country with a groundswell of support for someone who will defy political expectation. If it's not Trump, maybe it will be Ben Carson, or the other outside Carly Fiorina.

We may be seeing the start of a movement in this country to finally push back. The crowds at those games reveled in the satisfaction they received for not just sitting idly by while other people tried to take away their rights. Now, more needs to be done, and it needs to be seen, and it needs to make the news on all these liberal news networks so Washington can see that people aren't going to take it anymore. It's time! It is time! Now is the time! People should not be afraid of their governments; governments should be afraid of their people! Thomas Jefferson said, "When the government fears the people, there is liberty; when the people fear the government, there is tyranny." Benjamin Franklin said that "Rebellion to tyrants is Obedience to God."

After having a good day at the Washington DC Fountain Pen Supershow, and doing some sight-seeing; while heading out of town, I was pulled over by a Police Officer and given a ticket, for not wearing my seat belt. In Pennsylvania, yes we have a Seat-Belt law, but here it is not a primary offense. You have to be charged with something else like speeding to be charged for not wearing a seat-belt. Plus it is a fairly inexpensive fine. But, in Maryland, it is a primary offense. They can just pull people over willy-nilly; and it is an $83.00 fine.

So, be warned when you're driving through our nation's capital, that the boys in blue will be cruising through the streets targeting tourists who don't know their law.

I don't wear a seat-belt, because back in the 90s, a young kid was speeding and slammed into me, hitting the rear passenger door on the driver's side. If he would have hit the driver's door, I would have been hurt really bad and maybe killed. If you like wearing a seat belt, I don't have a problem. My problem is that these seat belt laws infringe on my rights. I am an adult, and quite capable of making a decision in regard to my own safety. My not wearing a seat-belt does not hurt anyone; and I don't think the government has the right to do my thinking for me. I can understand and agree with child-safety seats in the backseat and all that; but when it comes to adults, we should have the right to make that decision.

So, it's a way for a tyranical government to exercise its misplaced authority over its citizens to make money. Yeah, pay your police to cruise the streets and ticket unsuspecting tourists. Tourists that help support the businesses in your city. When I go to the Pen Show next year, I'm going to make sure I don't spend any money at any gift shops, and I'm going to find someplace to eat outside the city. So, go ahead, keep ticketing tourists by enforcing a law that is tantamount to harassment- which is what I told the cop.

After going to the 2015 Washington DC Fountain Pen Supershow on Saturday, we headed up to our nation's capital to see some of the sights. Neither my son or I had ever seen the main attractions on the National Mall. We had been there in the mid-90s, but only saw the Capitol. This time, we were able to find a parking spot along the Basin, and we walked up to the Washington Monument, then past the World War II Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, then over to the White House, and then back to the Washington Monument to go over to the Jefferson Memorial.

My 30-year old son was more in awe than I was, because I know the reason for such large grandiose structures. Its amazing how the throngs of people milling about these sites, taking pictures, secure in the fact that they are enjoying the liberty that previous generations fought to provide. But these monuments are nothing more than part of the perpetual public relations campaign the Federal government has invested in to create the mindset that you are indeed free. You are NOT free. Your rights have been slowly and methodically taken away. You've been taught in public school that you elect your leaders. No- you don't. They are selected, and you are brainwashed into voting for them. You don't elect the President- the Electoral College does. Freedom is just an illusion, and that illusion is supported by huge monuments and memorials that chronicle a lie.

When we walked past the Washington Monument, the sun was beating down to the tune of nearly 100 degrees, and people were crowding into the thin shadow of the Monument for some shade. To me, it seemed sort of symbolic, as many people try to find their way under the shadow of the government to take advantage of social programs because they feel the government should take care of them.

Did you know that the original idea for the Nation Mall was for it to be in the shape of a Cross because of our Christian heritage. The Lincoln Memorial (1922) was at its head, the Jefferson Memorial (1939) was on the left crossbar, the Washington Monument in the center, the White House on the right crossbar, and the Capitol at the bottom. But the construction of Tidal Basin in 1949 destroyed the prospect of that symbolism.

We are living in a Matrix that is being controlled by powerful, evil people and there are many things going on behind the scenes, right under your nose, because your attention has been diverted by many things and you have just trusted that career politicians have had your best interests at heart. They haven't, and they have run this country into the ground.

In 2016, you have a chance to bring real change. If you elect another tax and spend liberal, you will have sealed your own fate. Our debt right now stands around $18 trillion, and if it goes to $24 trillion, we will never recover. Our nation will collapse and most likely be usurped into a world government. This nation needs a big change, bold leadership and someone willing to stand-up and do the things that need to be done.

People that do this kind of false, bait & switch posting, need to be taken to the desert, tied to stakes in the sand, and covered with honey so they can be eaten alive by camel spiders.

September 23, 2015  -- NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN!

It IS going to happen, and here's when -- 
“Gospel must first be published among all nations” (Mark 13:10); “that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (2nd Thessalonians 2:3); “a falling way” (2nd Thessalonians 2:3);  “then shall be great tribulation…as was not since the beginning” (Matthew 24:21); “immediately after the tribulation of those days…they shall see the Son of man coming” (Matthew 24:29, 30)

If your date doesn't line up with this, it doesn't line up with the Bible, it doesn't line up with truth and it's not going to happen when they say it's going to happen.

I don't know if you caught this in the news, but an amateur photographer in California named Phoo Chan took some pictures of a Crow that landed on the back of a Bald Eagle in mid-air. Shortly after, prophetic prognosticators began elaborating on the spiritual significance on this.

Crows have been associated with death and the occult, mostly because of their black color. They are considered as being cunning, often outsmarting other birds and animals; while other traditions believe them to be evil, as portrayed in the 1976 movie "The Omen," about the Antichrist. Crows have often been seen on battlefields, picking at the flesh of the fallen. Superstitions of many cultures believe them to be a symbol of coming bad news.

And a Crow was seen landing on the back of, and riding on a bird that is recognized as the symbol of America. Kinda makes you think of a 'magic carpet' ride- an Arab tradition (One Thousand and One Nights). Seemingly a smaller bird was able to cause a much larger bird to submit to its will without question.

Prophetic symbolism? It is certainly possible.

On Saturday, August 15th, my son Michael and I drove down to the 2015 Washington DC Fountain Pen Supershow at the Sheraton in Tysons Corner, VA. It is billed as the biggest pen show in the world- and it did not disappoint. They had vendors in a large ballroom, a smaller room and out into the lobby. It took almost 3 hours to see everything. It was really crowded and hard to move around, but it was a beautiful thing. With the $7 admission you got a free bag, a bottle of Monteverde Ink, and an issue of Pen World magazine. I almost stuck to my budget- but I didn't go over by much. I have 2 new fountain pens, and a wooden ballpoint pen in walnut that came in a nice walnut box with a strong magnifying glass and envelope opener. I got a Conklin All American Sunburst resin fountain pen (with a Fine nib) that is a nice fun-looking pen; and I got an Edison Glenmont Golden Flake acrylic fountain pen (with a fine nib) from their Signature Line, that was personally tuned by Andrea Gray of Edison Pen Co. This is my 2nd Edison pen, and they are nice to look at and write with. This was indeed a very nice show and I'll be going back next year; which will be about the time I'll be able to afford to buy another pen.

Regarding 1 John 5:8, and the PCE conveying that it should be a small "s," the 1611 KJV uses a capital "S." In the context of verse 7 in elaborating on the attributes of what is referred to as the "Trinity," it should be a capital "S," as the Spirit is a proper name for one of these elements. I've always been confused as to why there is so much debate and discussion on something that is so clearly defined.

+bibleprotector I've always felt this (v. 9) had to do with false preachers and prophets at the time who were presenting their own 'gospel,' which we can see today in the many apocryphal books. But the "witness" or word of God, manifested through Christ, his Son, trumped the words of men who were acting on their own behalf and "hath not life." (v. 12) Verses 7 & 8 mirrored the same things with v. 8 giving symbolic representation to the truth of v. 7. God uses symbolism in many places in the Bible to make things easier to understand.

Almost 3 hours and they talked very little about Operation Highjump. I'm a little disappointed. Should have titled this video something else. It was a good show...just mislabeled.
