Biden, Pentagon Face Massive Class-Action Lawsuit Over Vaccine Mandate on Federal Employees and Military Members — The Gateway Pundit

Two dozen military members, federal employees, and federal civilian contractors have joined in a massive class-action lawsuit against the Biden administration’s federal mandatory vaccine policy. The group includes members from all five branches of the US military, including Navy Seals, Green Berets, and several high-ranking officers.

The Liberty Council – a Christian legal firm – filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, on behalf of the 24 plaintiffs who oppose the vaccine because of their deeply held religious beliefs. So far, they have been “refused any religious exemption or accommodation” for the mandate.

Plaintiffs have demonstrated their commitments to the United States Constitution and the Nation’s future comfort, security, and prosperity. This Court should demand that the Nation return the favor.

Telling Plaintiffs they must accept or receive a shot they oppose according to their sincerely held religious beliefs, or face court martial, dishonorable discharge, and other life altering disciplinary measures, disgraces the sacrifices these heroes have made.”

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Sleepy Joe Biden are all listed on the suit as defendants.

From The Epoch Times:

The plaintiffs are asking the court to issue a temporary restraining order (pdf) to prevent the COVID-19 vaccine mandates from taking effect, and ultimately issue an injunction to prevent the Pentagon from enforcing the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Biden on Sept. 9 issued an executive order requiring almost all federal employees to get a COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment. Regular testing isn’t an option. Civilian federal employees and contractors have until Nov. 22 to be fully vaccinated.”

The lawsuit argues that the federal vaccine mandate is unconstitutional because it directly violates the plaintiffs’ first amendment rights and, more specifically, their religious freedoms. As they point out, the three currently available vaccines were developed by using aborted fetal stem cells.

“Plaintiffs’ sincerely held religious beliefs preclude them from accepting any one of the three currently available COVID-19 vaccines derived from, produced or manufactured by, tested on, developed with, or otherwise connected to aborted fetal cell lines. 

Plaintiffs’ religious beliefs compel them to not condone, support, justify, or benefit (directly or indirectly) from the taking of innocent human life via abortion, and that to do so is sinning against God.” 

Despite Biden’s Department of Defense and the Pentagon’s claims that ‘exemptions’ are available, most of the 24 members of the lawsuit have already had their requests for religious exemption denied, while others have been threatened with “dishonorable discharge, court-martials, termination, or other life-altering disciplinary measures” for attempting to file for an exemption.

According to the lawsuit, some have even been told “there is no point in even making a request” because no exemptions will be given.

“Some of these Plaintiffs have been informed by their superiors that no religious exemption or accommodation will be given, so there is no point in even making a request.”

A US Navy spokesperson declined to comment when he was asked if ANY medical or religious exemptions to the vaccine had been approved, according to The Epoch Times.

In addition to its unconstitutionality and the fact that virtually no exemptions have been granted, the attorneys also argued that Biden’s vaccine mandate is unenforceable because the FDA has only issued an Emergency Use Authorization for the vaccine.

The lawsuit correctly points out that the fully approved ‘Comirnaty’ vaccine is not available in the United States and demands that the explicit statutory conditions for EUA are followed – which expressly states that people are free to accept or refuse the product until it is fully approved.

As of right now, the only available vaccine options that satisfy the mandate have not been fully approved by the FDA.

“Because all COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are subject to the EUA Statute restrictions and limitations, all individuals—including military service members, federal employees, and federal civilian contractors—have the explicit right under the EUA Statute to accept or refuse administration of the products.”

It only takes one case to set the precedent against these unconstitutional vaccine mandates.

Goodbye Middle Class: 50 Percent Of All U.S. Workers Made $34,612.04 Or Less Last Year — The Economic Collapse

If we keep going down this path, soon we won’t have much of a “middle class” at all.  When I first started writing about the economy many years ago, I often wrote about the tens of millions of “working poor” Americans that were enduring so many hardships.  But at this point most of the nation now falls into the “working poor” category.  That isn’t because wages haven’t been going up.  Little by little, wages have been incrementally rising year after year, but meanwhile the cost of living has been absolutely soaring.  Paychecks have not even come close to keeping up with inflation, and this has been eviscerating the middle class.  Today, the majority of the country is in constant “survival mode” financially, and that isn’t going to change any time soon.

When I was growing up, retailers that catered to the middle class did exceptionally well.  My mother was constantly taking me and my siblings to JCPenney and Sears, and it seemed like that was where virtually everyone shopped.

But now such retailers are rapidly going extinct.  Today, the retailers that are doing well are those that cater to the very bottom of the economic food chain (Walmart, dollar stores, etc.) or those that cater to the very top of the economic food chain.

And that is because there isn’t much in between those two extremes anymore.

The Social Security Administration has just released final wage statistics for 2020, and they are extremely alarming.  According to the figures that they have given to us, the median wage for 2020 was just $34,612.04

By definition, 50 percent of wage earners had net compensation less than or equal to the median wage, which is estimated to be $34,612.04 for 2020.

It is really depressing to think that half of all U.S. workers made $34,612.04 or less last year.

That is less than $3,000 a month, and that is before taxes.

Needless to say, trying to survive in a major U.S. city on that kind of income is not easy in today’s economic environment.

Of course $34,612.04 would have been a very nice yearly income back in 1960, because back then the cost of living was much lower.  The following comes from an article authored by MN Gordon

In 1960, for example, a gallon of gas cost $0.31 per gallon. Similarly, in 1960 a gallon of milk cost $1.00 per gallon. Currently, the average price of gas and the average price of milk are $3.28 per gallon and $3.68 per gallon, respectively. That’s upwards of a 958 percent increase for gas and 268 percent increase for milk over the last 60 years.

Back in 1960, you could buy an entire house in a nice middle class neighborhood for $34,612.04.

Today, that would barely be a down payment on a dilapidated shack in many parts of the country.

In recent weeks, I have frequently pointed out that there are millions of jobs available in the U.S. right now.

But the vast majority of them are highly undesirable because they pay “working poor” wages.

So many people out there are working as hard as they can and they still can’t make ends meet.  In fact, one recent polldiscovered that 59 percent of Americans that make less than $50,000 a year have experienced “serious financial problems in the past few months”…

The poll showed a sharp income divide, with 59% of those with annual incomes below $50,000 reporting serious financial problems in the past few months, compared with 18% of households with annual incomes of $50,000 or more.

As I have discussed so many times over the years, we have gotten to a point where most of the population is living paycheck to paycheck.

And when you are living paycheck to paycheck, all it takes is one bad break to push you into financial distress.

Sadly, things are going to get even worse for ordinary Americans in the coming months because inflation continues to rise very aggressively

Inflation accelerated in September, with consumer price pressures across America showing no sign of easing ahead of the all-important holiday shopping season.

Consumer prices increased 5.4% from the year-ago period, slightly faster than their 5.3% increase the previous month and on par with the increases in June and July.

Needless to say, those numbers actually greatly understate what we are facing, because the way inflation is calculated by the government has changed dozens of times over the years.

As I am constantly reminding my readers, if inflation was still calculated the way that it was back in 1980, it would already be well into double digit territory.

In other words, the sort of inflation that we faced during the Jimmy Carter era is already here.

And CNN just admitted that prices “aren’t coming back to earth anytime soon”.

If prices continue to rise much faster than paychecks do, the middle class will just keep getting smaller and smaller and smaller.

Sadly, politicians seem determined to hasten the demise of the middle class by pushing millions more Americans out of decent paying jobs in the months ahead.  But in the process, they will also be creating critical staff shortages.  For example, just consider what just happened at a hospital in Lewiston, Maine

The administrators of Central Maine Healthcare in Lewiston, Maine, enacted a vax policy demanding all employees to take the vaccine. But more than 250 employees refused to comply before the deadline. These employees were subsequently fired.

Unfortunately for patients, about 170 of those employees were needed to staff the intensive care unit. Consequently, the hospital had to shut down its ICU because of the firings.

Because it lost so many employees, the hospital plans on cutting intensive care beds by 50% and reducing the number of medical surgical beds by 40%, the Bangor Daily News reported.

Isn’t that nuts?

Of course the same type of scenario is playing out at hospital after hospital all over the country right now.

And you can’t just hire random people off the streets to be doctors and nurses, because it takes many years of training to become a doctor or a nurse.

So let us hope that we don’t have to deal with any sort of a major health crisis this winter, because our medical system would become overwhelmed very rapidly.

These are such ominous times for our economy, and these are such ominous times for our nation as a whole.

In the months ahead, there will be more inflation, more shortages, and more questionable decisions by our leaders.

Events are truly beginning to spiral out of control, and America will never be quite the same ever again.

The New Covid Binary: Freedom or Fear — CultureWatch

Do liberty and basic human rights even matter anymore?

This virus has made one thing quite clear: generally speaking, there are two types of people in the world: those who refuse to cower in fear and panic, who value freedom, democracy and human rights, and who reject the notion that these basic goods can be stolen away from us in order to ‘keep us safe’ – and those who don’t.

Yes some shades of grey exist, but increasingly we see this clear divergence, with two opposing camps: one values liberty and the importance of making responsible, informed choices (especially as to personal health care), and the other runs on hysteria, emotion and subservience to the Nanny State.

The latter group has stopped behaving like adults and has decided that the all-powerful State knows what is best for them, and they should just meekly go along with whatever they are told to do, regardless of how ludicrous, contrary to facts and common sense, and contradictory these dictates might be.

And the odd thing is, this latter group is mostly made up of those on the left. At one point the left was all about rejecting authority, resisting the establishment, pursuing personal freedom, and maintaining the right to choose. Now these folks are the biggest defenders of Big Government, coercion (including medical coercion), and mindless conformity.

They have grown to love and adore Big Brother Statism, and those who dare to resist are seen as troublemakers, recalcitrants and the cause of all our woes. I recently penned an entire article on this, discussing this bizarre reversal of fortune: billmuehlenberg.com/2021/10/14/the-new-counterculturalists/

The biggest problem with all those who so readily will trade basic freedoms and human rights for some perceived ‘safety’ and ‘security’ is that they have entered into a fool’s bargain. What they so blithely give up will likely never be gotten back.

To talk about ‘temporary government measures’ is basically an oxymoron. What the government takes away from the people it is very loathe to give back. What new powers it takes for itself it seldom gives up. As Ronald Reagan memorably put it: “No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.” 

As I have said so often now, most government have been amazed at how easy it was to lockdown entire populations, with hardly a murmur of complaint from the masses. If this was a try run for a future full-tilt government takeover, it went like a charm. Our leaders now know they can pull this off with ease.

A new piece on these matters by Peter Hitchens titled “We’re in the Age of the Curfew – and there’s no escape” is both good enough and brief enough to share here in its entirety. He writes:

Prepare to be confined to your home again. Prepare to be prevented from working and put on a state dole. Prepare to have your education trashed. Prepare to be banned from travelling and required to show wads of paper or permit intrusive apps to be installed on your phone. I can’t say when this will be. But after last week’s parliamentary report on the Covid panic, you may be sure it will happen. Next time it may well not be Covid. But that does not matter.

 

A terrifying principle has been established, that shutting down society is a wise and proportionate response to disease If you want to know how bad this can get in a supposedly free country, look at what has being going on, over and over again, in the Australian state of Victoria and especially the once-delightful city of Melbourne.

 

A bullying and overbearing police force has allowed itself to be used to enforce the orders of a not very intelligent head of government. Life has been miserable, confined and under surveillance. And nobody knows when this will stop or whether it will start again.

 

I mention this because I am pretty sure that the next time our country goes for a national shutdown, it will be much better prepared and have many fewer loopholes than it had last time. Those who like this sort of thing will have been watching carefully and they will have noticed how some people managed to stretch the rules a bit to make life more bearable. There will be none of that. Show your papers, get scanned, or else.

 

And all on the basis of what? Parliament’s Science and Technology Committee and the Health and Social Care Committee simply assume that shutdowns work. This belief is now the conventional wisdom, the groupthink which these MPs weirdly claim that others suffer from.

 

Evidence from around the world does not support this at all. From Japan to Sweden, nations which instead used light-touch restrictions did not do significantly worse than those which put their people under rigid house arrest. And the hardliners did not do particularly well. Take the Czech Republic, to begin with much praised by shutdown enthusiasts.

 

It ‘locked down’ on March 16, 2020, slammed tight controls on its frontiers and issued Europe’s first mask decree. Yet that autumn the disease returned in force, leading it to shut down again – and the process was repeated in December. It currently has the sixth-highest number of deaths per million, 2,860, compared with relaxed Sweden’s 1,451. And that is despite the fact that Sweden, like us, badly mishandled its care homes.

 

Studies from around the world show there is no obvious link between shutdowns and the containment of the disease. What’s more, this is the first time in human history in which the healthy, rather than the sick, have been quarantined.

 

What we need is better MPs and a more vigilant media. But without them, we’ll be back before long to the days of the Sunbathing Squad, the Picnic Squad, the Front Garden Squad, and drones flying over remote moorlands, tracking hikers trying to get away from it all.

 

This is the Age of the Curfew. I wonder which other bit of the Middle Ages they will reintroduce next? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10099065/PETER-HITCHENS-Age-Curfew-theres-no-escape.html

October 17 Evening Quotes of The Day

Hastening to Repent After Sin
Proverbs 4:17; 26:11; Isaiah 55:7; Acts 3:19; 2 Peter 2:20

A sheep may fall into the ditch and defile himself, but he hastens out of it as soon as he can; but the swine chooses a dirty place, wallows all the day long in the mud and mire. A saint may fall into sin, but he hastens to recover himself by repentance. A sinner lives in it day and night.

Salvation Neglected; Christ Rejected :: By Nathele Graham

Do you take Christ’s finished work on the cross lightly and neglect salvation? If so, then you really don’t understand what He did for you. The sin in your life condemned you to eternal damnation separated from God. There is no way for any person to be sinless, but by human standards, you were probably a good person. God’s standards are very different than human standards.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9).

The Jewish Law was established, and many rules of conduct were established. The law was a schoolmaster and very works-oriented. Even the most faithful person who followed the law to the best of their ability couldn’t obtain the perfection needed to enter heaven. Praise God! He had a better plan. He stepped into His creation as a baby born in Bethlehem to be one of us…human because His mother was human. Still, He didn’t have the sin nature, and His blood was pure and untainted by sin…His father was God, the Holy Spirit. When John the Baptist first saw Jesus, he recognized exactly who He was.

“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him and saith Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

Jesus would fulfill the Jewish feast of Passover, where a lamb was sacrificed to cover sin. Jesus would offer Himself as the one-time sacrifice to take sin away when He allowed Himself to be crucified. Old Testament saints looked forward to the coming Messiah, and today we can look at history and know that Jesus is the promised Messiah. Works can never bring salvation; only faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross can take our sin away and bring eternal life. Knowing what He did for you, shouldn’t you be thankful? Salvation should not be neglected.

Christians have a tendency to drift away from His word and take our salvation for granted. Other things become more important to us and get in the way. The kids have soccer games or football camp; we work overtime in our jobs because we need the extra money to pay for the frivolous things we desire; we devote time to hobbies, watch television, and much more. The list of what comes between us and studying God’s word is long. None of the things we devote our time and effort to is as important as not neglecting salvation. Have you ever seen a garden with weeds growing taller than the tomatoes? A neglected garden doesn’t produce good fruit, neither does neglected faith.

“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him” (Hebrews 2:3).

The writer of the letter to the Hebrews holds many lessons for us today. It was written at a time when Christianity was first beginning. Those first believers were Jewish, and they faced losing everything by accepting Christ for salvation. They were no longer welcome in the Temple, which, in addition to worship, was a very important gathering place to make business deals and find support in times of need. Choosing Christ meant you were no longer a part of your family, inheritance was forfeited, and jobs were lost.

It was a life-changing decision to follow Christ. It should change a life today, too. Those brave men and women were tempted to go back to their old ways and be welcomed back by family and friends rather than face the troubles that came from following Christ. The writer of Hebrews encouraged them to stay strong, not neglect their faith, and form new bonds with fellow Christians.

“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Fellowship with fellow Christians is important. Whether you sit in a pew on Sunday morning or get together with Christian friends, be sure the fellowship is centered on Christ. Study God’s word and apply it to your life. God’s word is an anchor, and it keeps us from drifting away. Neglecting to study His word will most certainly allow us to drift away from our faith. Many Christians have been drifting in the sea of despair, setting themselves onto the currents of the world and of the flesh because of a simple neglect of God’s word. By neglecting their salvation, they embrace the world and the carnal things therein.

In Hebrews 2:3, cited above, the Greek word “ameleo” is translated neglect, and it means to be “careless of, to neglect.” It’s the same word used in Matthew’s Gospel to show indifference.

“But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise” (Matthew 22:5).

The “they” in this verse, which is from a parable Jesus told regarding the Kingdom, refers to those who were invited by a king to the marriage of his son. They were offered a wonderful opportunity but ignored it, disregarding what was freely offered to them. They made light of this invitation. Parables always teach a deep truth, and in this one, a king (representing God the Father) sent out an invitation (through prophets) for His subjects (Israel) to attend the wedding of His Son (Jesus). The nation rejected the invitation. They “neglected so great salvation.” The invitation was then extended to Gentiles. Paul wrote to Timothy, a young pastor, and reminded him,

“Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery” (1 Timothy 4:14).

We all have different gifts, but if we neglect our salvation, the gifts will be neglected also. Stay in God’s word, and put a high priority on honoring what He has done for you.

It’s easy to slip into neglecting our salvation when we spend more time in worldly pursuits and with worldly people. There’s nothing wrong with your son playing football, but when his games consistently fall on Sunday morning or when football camp becomes more important than Sunday school, there’s a problem. Paul wrote many letters to many congregations that were established in very pagan cities. Sadly, these congregations found it easy to slip back into pagan ways. For example, there were many things wrong in Corinth, and Paul encouraged them to break ties with unbelievers.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing: and I will receive you” (2 Corinthians 6:14-17).

It’s easy to neglect our salvation when we only fellowship with unbelievers or worldly Christians. Ladies, if the man you “love” isn’t a Christian, why are you dating him? If you yoke yourself with a non-Christian, you will soon neglect your salvation, and he will lead you away from God. The same is true with business relationships. If God isn’t your main concern, then how can you honor Him in all you do? If salvation is neglected, then God is second in our life, and we know we aren’t to have any god before Him.

Don’t misunderstand. I’m not talking about losing your salvation. If you have made an earnest confession of faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sin, then you are saved by His grace. You cannot do any works to save yourself. Jesus paid the ransom on the cross. When you confessed that you’re a sinner and accepted His free gift of salvation, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit. The faith you professed should have changed your life and attitude.

“That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory” (Ephesians 1:12-14).

The Holy Spirit is sealed within each Christian, and our salvation is secure. When we neglect our salvation and ease back into the old ways of the world, that’s when we feel as if He has moved away from us, when in fact, it’s us who moved. He’s still sealed within us; we’ve just put our fingers in our ears.

“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption” (Ephesians 4:30).

Christ did His part; now we have to respect Him and walk in His way.

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:31-32).

Neglecting our salvation can and does bring swift reckoning. To be in fellowship with our Father in Heaven means we stay in His word…we read, we study, we do whatever we can to keep in fellowship with God. In this way, we keep the joy of the Lord within us and are not overcome by evil fleshly desires. Fellowshipping with God means we aren’t neglecting Him but heeding His words.

“Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” (James 1:21-25).

God needs to be first in our life. If we neglect our salvation, it’s easy to forget how ugly sin is and slip back into old ways. If we become doers of the word, we form the habit of putting God first. We remember the price that was paid for our salvation. God’s love for us should never be taken for granted but treated as the valuable treasure it is.

There are consequences for every decision we make. Deciding to neglect Gods’ word is a sure way to bring about unpleasant consequences. The Bible is His word, and it is given to us to study and learn who He is, why He came, and what He expects of each one of us. If we neglect His word, we are telling Him that we take our salvation with a grain of salt…that His sacrifice was a nice thing for Him to do, but other things are more important to us. Jesus Christ paid a price that we cannot possibly comprehend. As Christians, our gratitude should show in everything we do, and Christ should be first in our life. Never ever should we neglect salvation. Salvation neglected is Christ rejected.

God bless you all,

A New Era and a New Universal Agenda :: By Daymond Duck

On Sept. 23, 2015, Pope Francis discussed a global constitution, a world court, and world government at the White House.

Two days later, he went to the UN to discuss these same issues.

The UN started considering a document called “Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” Supporters called it a “New Universal Agenda.”

“Universal” comes from the Preamble of the document itself.

In essence, the document calls for a one-world government, a one-world religion, and a one-world economic system.

Notice these 5 things from the Pope’s speech and the UN document: A world constitution, a world court, a world government, a world religion, and a world economic system.

The UN quickly voted on the document (“Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development).”

When the vote was announced, delegates from 193 nations stood and gave a thunderous ovation.

Here is some information from this writer’s notes about the UN Sustainable Development goals for 2030 (emphasis mine).

  • The document preamble says, “ALL countries and stakeholders, acting in a collaborative partnership, WILL (not may—WILL) implement this plan.”
  • By 2030, the UN WILL be transformed into a body that can REQUIRE all nations to obey.
  • One government official said NOT A SINGLE HUMAN BEING will be allowed to escape this next great leap forward.
  • We should expect the “Transformation of the World” to start impacting EVERY nation BEFORE 2030.
  • One reporter said the world’s CHILDREN WILL NOW BE INDOCTRINATED with the idea that we are all “global citizens.”
  • UN Sec. Gen. Ban Ki-moon called this transformation of the world the “START OF A NEW ERA.”
  • Ban Ki-moon said the world is about to realize the “dream of a world peace and dignity for all” (will the UN declare peace and safety?).
  • On Jan. 1, 2016, it was reported that the UN document for creating a world government, world religion, and world economic system by 2030 is now in effect, and everyone should expect ALL nations to make a strong push to bring it to pass.

Notice these two very important points: (1) According to UN Sec. Gen. Ban Ki-moon, the world entered a NEW ERA on Jan. 1. 2016, and (2) There is a NEW UNIVERSAL AGENDA that every nation will implement before 2030.

This writer believes events show that America’s Deep State started implementing the “New Universal Agenda” in 2016 without a clear explanation to U.S. citizens and without U.S. citizens getting a chance to vote on it (They told us, but they didn’t explain what they were doing, and the public was not paying enough attention).

This explains the extreme global hatred for Trump and his Make America Great Again agenda.

This explains why the same things (mandated vaccinations, etc.) are happening all over the world simultaneously (because all the UN officials from 193 nations voted to implement them all over the world before 2030.).

This explains why the leftists are taking over America’s school system (to indoctrinate children with the UN agenda).

On Mar. 10, 2016, it was reported that the UN released a Master Plan called “Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.”

Every government, including the U.S., is now REQUIRED to promote the UN goals, and here is this writer’s understanding of some of the goals.

  • End poverty. (This is about wealth distribution or giving the possessions of America’s middle class to the poor, especially in other countries. Everyone, except the very rich, will be poor and dependent upon the government. Illegal immigrants are now being given social security, free healthcare, free education, etc.)
  • Make healthcare a human right (This is about government control of healthcare. Medical groups are being asked to fire employees that refuse to obey government Covid requirements, etc. Think about: Our government is saying we have a pandemic, so everyone must be vaccinated, but they are firing people that care for the sick and vaccinate them.)
  • Control education to ensure gender equality, empower women, etc. (This is about seizing control of our school systems. The government is using teacher’s unions and school boards to promote LGBTQ rights, transgenders competing in women’s sports, etc. School groups have asked the FBI to treat citizens that disagree with this as domestic terrorists.)
  • Government control of all production (lockdowns; bankrupting companies; not letting people unload cargo containers, etc.).
  • A reduction in the consumption of goods and services. (Biden is destroying the U.S. supply-chain distribution system. U.S. citizens are beginning to see empty store shelves because the U.S. government is required to reduce consumption. There are 500,000 containers on ships off our west coast that can’t get unloaded. Reducing consumption is part of the effort to control global warming.)
  • The consumption of less meat and frozen or convenience foods. (There is a proposal to combat global warming by fining ranchers that raise cattle. The cost of meat and milk has soared. Some want to force people to eat artificial meat. This is also part of the effort to control global warming.)
  • The use of fewer and smaller vehicles and appliances. (Biden destroyed America’s energy independence. The price of fuel has soared, which may ultimately force people to buy smaller vehicles. Think global warming.)
  • The use of less air-conditioning at home and at work. (The cost of utilities is rising, which may cause people to raise the temperature on their thermostat. Think global warming.)
  • The use of smaller houses and apartments. (The price of lumber has soared, which will force people to build smaller houses. Think global warming.)

The U.S. has been sold out by America’s Deep State, the U.S. military, big tech, big pharma, and most of the major media as the globalists try to meet the UN “Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” goals.

Unless God intervenes, the UN will very likely be transformed into a satanic world government by 2030 or sooner, and the U.S. will be REQUIRED to obey the head of that world government (the Antichrist).

But no matter what year the satanic world government begins (2030 or sooner), this writer believes the Rapture will precede the world government (perhaps by 3 years).

Recall that the Bible says we don’t know the day or the hour, but we can see it approaching and know when it is near.

The U.S. Senate recently considered a bill to raise the debt ceiling while they debate a bill to finance Biden’s $3.9 trillion stimulus package to further transform America.

Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema wouldn’t vote for it, but Mitch McConnell and several Republicans agreed to a temporary increase ($480 billion) that will last about 2 months and allow more time for negotiations.

Readers should understand that God will not be pleased with the global Deep State effort to establish a godless world government and religion with U.S. cooperation.

He will allow them to have what they are asking for, but His judgments will fall, and it will be worse than anyone can imagine.

There are many things to consider about what is happening, but here are 4 things readers might want to consider:

  • The Church is running out of time to get the gospel to the lost.
  • Christians are running out of time to repent of their sins, lay up treasure in heaven, etc.
  • The lost (including lukewarm Church members) are running out of time to get saved and go in the Rapture.
  • It would be wise to attend Church, read your Bible, do your very best to believe and obey the Scriptures, strengthen your relationship with other Christians, share Jesus with your family, friends and others, and pray for others and yourself.

Here are some recent stories that recently made the news.

One, on Oct. 8, 2021, it was reported that Biden’s Infrastructure Bill authorizes fines up to $700,000 per infraction on companies that do not meet Biden’s requirements for Covid testing and vaccination.

If this stays in Biden’s bill and it passes, it will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022, and companies will be forced to submit to the government.

Society is seeing the kind of tactics the Antichrist will use in his effort to enslave everyone on earth during the Tribulation Period.

Two, on Oct. 7, 2021, it was reported that Biden’s proposed Reconciliation Bill authorizes payments to people in the U.S. that have a U.S. citizen child, and there is no work requirement to qualify.

Illegal immigrants with a U.S. citizen child will receive $5,100, legal immigrants with a U.S. citizen child will receive $4,800, and native-born U.S. citizens with a U.S. citizen child will receive $4,600.

Put another way, illegal immigrants will receive more than legal immigrants, and both will receive more than U.S. citizens.

Good is being called evil, and evil is being called good.

This is a forerunner of the government corruption that will exist in the coming world government.

Three, concerning corruption in government, and more specifically, election fraud in Wisconsin: on Oct. 7, 2021, it was reported that there are 5.8 million people in Wisconsin and 7 million people on the voter rolls.

The truth, justice and righteousness that once prevailed in America has been cast to the ground and stomped on.

Four, concerning the Mark of the Beast and the tracking of all buying and selling: in Sept. and Oct. 2021, there was a multitude of reports about an IRS proposal to track bank transactions of $600 or more, and Treasury Sec. Janet Yellen’s support for the same.

Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville said, “Virtually every American with a bank account would be impacted.”

It is too early to say how this will come out, but the Antichrist and False Prophet will track all buying and selling, tie it to the Mark of the Beast, and kill those that refuse the Mark during the Tribulation Period.

Now the Biden administration’s IRS wants to track all buying and selling of $600 or more; there are proposals to tie buying and selling to whether people are vaccinated or unvaccinated and to fire those that refuse to be vaccinated.

Tribulation Period events are approaching.

Five, concerning world government: it has been reported that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot sent out an e-mail on Sept. 9, 2021, that said she will pick department heads and deputies that will be “pledging allegiance to the New World Order and good governance.”

Six, also concerning world government: on Oct. 8, 2021, 136 nations agreed to establish a 15% minimum global tax rate on big corporations and tighten loopholes to make it harder to avoid paying taxes.

Senate Republicans say 2/3 of the Senate will have to give their approval for the U.S. to participate.

Here is the bottom line: We are now in a new era, and there is a new universal agenda.

When Biden says everything is going according to plan, he means according to the UN Sustainable Development plan.

Finally, are you Rapture Ready?

If you want to be rapture ready and go to heaven, you must be born again (John 3:3). God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

Learning To Fail and Succeed in God — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

What fears are holding you back from boldly stepping into the abundant life God has for you?


God gives us the choice of how we wish to see the obstacles and mistakes that fill our lives. Like the other choices He allows us to make, we can either listen to the world and let failure consume us, or we can listen to Him and learn to succeed through Him.

“And Peter answered him, ‘Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.’ He said, ‘Come.’ So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, ‘Lord, save me.’ Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?’ (Matthew 14:28-31 ESV)

Like Peter, when we try to succeed in something, we often start out strong. As believers we know we should seek Jesus, so with our eyes on Him, we step out in faith looking to succeed in what He has called us to do. Then, just like Peter, we usually run into an obstacle or two and become distracted. We are manipulated, lied to, or hurt; something in the world causes us to take our eyes off of our Lord and Savior.

If this has happened to you, you are not alone. Peter experienced distraction too and his life turned out remarkably. We know from Scripture that Jesus will always be there to grab hold of us and rescue us. We also know that there comes a bit of conviction from our Lord when we fail and take our eyes off of Him. What we sometimes forget is that His conviction is for our own good. It is a gesture of love, designed to bring us to repentance, which brings us closer to Him.

Each time we fail, we can grow closer to God as He teaches us how to succeed in Him and through Him. We have a choice: accept our failures and throw in the towel, or repent and turn our eyes back onto Jesus, learning to succeed in the will of our Father.

Many believers are afraid to even step out of the boat; fear of distraction or failure holds them back. Saints, failure is part of our growth process, and by God’s grace, it even brings healing.

Do not let the world put fear in you that keeps you from stepping out in faith and walking in the will of God. Let us cast away these fears and continue to walk in faith, knowing that His nail-scarred hand is right there to grab us when we fail.

Let us believe confidently that His grace and mercy is showering down on us to bring us closer to Him. Let us step out off the boat each and every day, letting our light shine in the dark places of this world. May our faithful steps glorify Him and His mighty name, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Lord, please give me the faith to trust You fully and obey You without reservation. Help me to see every failure as a chance to run to you so I can experience the life of Jesus living through me more and more each day. I choose to step out of the boat today. Amen

What fears are holding you back from boldly stepping into the abundant life God has for you? How could you overcome those fears through Christ?

Do You Fear Failure? — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

“The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear.” Psalm 118,6A (NLT)


Imagine there is a big event taking place. You see many people preparing food in a kitchen, or others preparing the field. Your heart tells you to help. So, you go up to someone, and you say, “How can I help?”

The organizer replies, “Create two logins on the same computer for two staff members; I want them to access the same PC with different passwords.

You know how to use the computer well. However, it’s something you’ve never done before. And you wonder why you didn’t get to help in the kitchen or on the field like everyone else. While your assignment seems to be important, it also feels like it’s beyond you.

You know you’ve never done that task. Will you fail or will you succeed? It’s challenging. The task you’ve got is unlike the responsibility that others have. So, why did you get the uncommon task?

In your mind, you thought your assignment would be an effortless one — an everyday task that you’ve done in the past. So, you’re sort of feeling inadequate. It’s scary. While others are expecting you to succeed at that task, if you grab this opportunity, you could also fall flat on your face. It’s risky to take on that task even if it seems small, right?

No one wants to fail.

You can research this. You can try it. Without experience, you’ve got no choice but to learn this new task.

Will you go for this challenge?

Dear Lord, when I ask to help and you open the door, help me to put my trust in you and not in myself. Help me to believe that you’re strong enough to help me to do my best.

Think about a situation that challenges you. How can you grow to adapt to your current situation, whether it’s a relationship or a task? How can the Lord help you overcome your fear?

October 17 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

Growing by Degrees
1 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 4:15–16; 2 Thessalonians 1:3; 1 Peter 2:2; 2 Peter 3:18

Everyone, though born of God in an instant, and sanctified in an instant, yet undoubtedly grows by slow degrees.

All Sacraments but Reminders
Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:24–25

All the sacraments that are left here in earth are but minds of the body of Christ, for a sacrament is no more to say but a sign or mind of a thing passed, or a thing to come; for when Jesus spoke of the bread, and said to His disciples, “As you do this thing, do it in mind of me,” it was set for a mind of good things passed of Christ’s body.

Update on Signs of The Times for October 2021 :: By Ron Ferguson

Anyone who tries to interpret the signs of the times realizes that over time, conclusions change. As an example, in the early to mid-1990s, I was suggesting to people that it was computers that would allow the world to view the events being played out on the streets of Jerusalem in the time of the two witnesses (Revelation chapter 11). I used to say all is in place because we have computers.

However, what we were overlooking was the fact that much of the general population did not have computers and that they needed electricity to work. The concept was correct that it would be the mass media of computers, BUT we did not know that computerization would be in miniature form with towers to service that – enter the cell/mobile phone! It does not require electricity as such for the operation. Phones are in every nook and cranny.

Now, as we study the world, some very ominous signs are there that were not there just 4 or 5 years ago. All that will compel us to refine our views. It is a fool who sets dates and claims he or she has it all worked out. The Lord addressed this in Matthew 16:2-3; “But He answered and said to them, ‘When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather for the sky is red,’ and in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today for the sky is red and threatening.’ Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky but cannot discern the signs of the times?”

The nation was reprimanded for being able to interpret the weather but not being able to recognize and understand what was happening around them. May the Lord not allow us to fall into the same trap. I wish to look at a few things that are red lights to me, though it may not be so for others.

THE MATTER OF COMPULSION

I am currently considering in a Bible study I take, the letter to Thyatira and its ramifications, and its application to the particular period of Church History it represents. This was an interesting city. The trade guilds were stronger here than in any other place, and it was mandatory for workers to belong to a trade guild in order to keep working.

They are exactly the same as many of our modern trade unions. Thyatira had so many trade guilds because it was associated with the making of idols.

All the smiths – silver, gold, copper, etc., and linen, clay, fabric workers, etc., were there.

How did that affect the Christian? Well, he had to belong to the guild, or he was denied his right to work. The thing is that each guild had its own tutelary god or goddess, each member had to sacrifice to it before the guild meeting started, and it was compulsory for all members to attend. When business was concluded, they feasted and then had a general sexual orgy with anything goes.

Where did that leave the Christian? Either he went along with it or refused to participate in it. Refusal meant he forfeited his ability to buy and sell and to eat to live. These were very hard times. Some got around the problem by going to the guild meetings but saying to themselves, “This is all an outward thing, and it won’t matter if I am there because my soul is spiritual and belongs to God. Apparently, this was one of the major doctrines of the Nicolaitans, whom God condemns in the Thyatiran letter. They were able to divorce body and spirit. ‘My body is sinful, so it won’t matter what things I do with it, as long as I keep my soul and spirit for God.’

Just today, I heard the Premier of the State of Victoria (Australia) in an interview say, “Well, those who are not double vaccinated will be denied their rights to things.” That man is a Marxist who hates Christians and is taking separate action against them anyway. It is most deplorable that compulsion is being determined on the people in a similar way to what we had in Thyatira. It is not just Australia where this is proposed. The world is seeing this type of action, which will be the same type as what will operate in the Tribulation with the mark of the beast.

Just 2 years ago, we could not have perceived what was coming. It is forced allegiance or loss of rights.

What does that say about the Rapture? I think the only sensible conclusion we can arrive at is that the Rapture must be so close, and the Lord is letting us dimly see how it might work and that the concept is actually real. The mark of the beast is coming very soon but not before the Rapture.

CHINA

Since 2012 when that most wicked man took the position of the President of the CCP, Xi has expanded the military capability of China at an explosive rate while the USA under Obama downgraded the defense capability of the USA. Xi is a warmonger. We saw what he did to Hong Kong. Right now, the People’s Liberation Army of China is in full training for an invasion of Taiwan. In China itself, they have built a massive replica of parts of Taiwan’s capital and Parliament and are practicing ways to assault it. Xi is so satanically minded that death and murder mean nothing to him.

The invasion of Taiwan is inevitable with all the signs there. Communist soldiers are being trained in the use of quick transport across the Taiwan Strait. The once peaceful reefs in the South China Sea in international waters have been made into military bases, staging posts. The military strategists from the USA, Australia and India all say the conquest of Taiwan is the launching pad to take over Japan, and then the way to the United States is open to them. Make no mistake; Xi is a dangerous and evil man. How misguided for Biden to say he trusts Xi to keep his word.

What can’t be missed is, today (14 Oct 2021), Russia has come out in support of China taking over Taiwan. Xi speaks of “peaceful integration,” but the man is a liar, as is Satan, his master. Do not be mistaken; the situation is very serious. Xi has threatened to drop a nuclear bomb on Australia. He would love Australia, too, as it has the world’s biggest coal supply (the world’s best quality), iron ore, and so much uranium and lots of space.

I will not say more on China but want to make this conclusion. This, to me, is worrying. There are a lot of Christians in Taiwan who will suffer if a war happens. The whole of SE Asia could be affected. The big question is, “What might the USA do?” We know what Trump would have done, but Biden and Milley?? China is itching for a war because it knows it is superior to the US in military hardware and has over 2 million soldiers.

I don’t want to see a war in any way and am very conscious of the wording of the second seal that is broken; Revelation 6:3-4, “When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, ‘Come,’ and another, a red horse, went out, and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men should slay one another, and a great sword was given to him.”

This red horse comes after the white one, which is to be the appearing of the world leader (Antichrist, if you like). I believe the transition between these two horses is very short. Looking at the wording of those verses, we see, “to take peace from the earth” and “a great sword was given to him.” That means there will be wars over the whole earth, and they will be severe because the sword the rider on the red horse has is a “great sword.” In this matter, the Lord Jesus described it this way when speaking to those who will be in the Tribulation time (His Jewish saints): Matthew 24:6-7, “You will be hearing of wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not frightened for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end, for nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.”

The world today is hearing of wars and rumours of war. The stage is set for massive conflict because the armoury of the world is almost beyond comprehension. I have looked at some good internet sites that give a breakdown of military strength of the nations. We are not in the Tribulation, so the rumours of wars we hear today is NOT the Tribulation reference, but again, God is allowing us a glance of what could be just over the horizon.

That does not mean there will not be a war in our time, but I am trusting it won’t happen and that the Rapture is just so close, as everything in this matter is in place.

LAWLESSNESS

The Tribulation will be under the control of the world leader, who is described as the man of lawlessness. The Lord, in the Olivet Discourse, speaking about the Tribulation leading to His Second Coming, said this: Matthew 24:12, “And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold….” Lawlessness will be increased in that time, but it must always have a base and origin. The origin of lawlessness is right back at the dawn of human creation in the fall, but the base of lawlessness is here today. We are in lawless times, and it grows worse. In western governments, there is rebellion and unlawful behavior from BLM, mass protest from radicals who lost the election to Trump in 2016, Extinction Rebellion, Culture wars, Climate Change activists, Environmental thugs, among others. Militancy is definitely on the rise.

The Tribulation is not going to begin with a peaceful society. Society will have already become lawless, arrogant and violent.

When we again consider the items in the last days of the Church-age prophecy Paul wrote, we can appreciate how lawlessness works through the descriptions given. I have underlined those aspects that form the culture around lawlessness and rebellion. 2Timothy 3:1-4, “Realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come, for men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastfularrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutalhaters of goodtreacherousreckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.”

There is an aspect that concerns me. I am not going to speak for the USA, but I can for Australia. During Covid about one month ago, the police have taken repressive powers to themselves. In a recent protest in Melbourne against the constant lockdowns by workers who are not allowed to work (it is the worst and longest in the world), police attacked the crowd with assault rifles, firing things worse than rubber bullets, and a whole lot more I won’t mention. It was terrifying – Australia’s Tiananmen Square.

Police persecute the public and have issued so many fines, sometimes for next to nothing. It has become Australia-wide. When you have lawlessness from those who are supposed to protect us against criminal lawlessness, it is very alarming.

CLIMATE CHANGE

This movement, rather mania, began with global warming, but when facts disputed that, the concept was changed to “climate change,” a very nebulous term. This crusade was promoted by the radical arms of the Environmental Movement and Greens and Marxist socialists. Now it has become mainstream, a religious fervor that has overtaken the world.

Europe and the USA have threatened Australia that unless it gets rid of the only few coal power stations it has (less than 1% of world emissions), then it will be cut off from the world.

I don’t believe in global warming, as I read credible scientists who totally dispute the idea, but they are silenced. Nevertheless, if you do accept that idea, then explain why the Vikings farmed their reindeer in Greenland 1,000 years when it was several degrees warmer than today, and they did not have coal power stations. All scientists admit to climate cycles – warming and cooling – so why this maniac zeal today?

Well, you see, it is a vehicle. This is the means of rounding up all nations into the control of the powerbrokers of the United Nations, a world conformity that we know is a socialist one. What Christians must understand is where this movement is heading. Firstly, it will paralyze the world with a lack of reliable power and therefore bring in chaos. Secondly, it will move developed nations into debt. Thirdly, it will encase the world in a great delusion and bring them into ensnarement. Fourthly, by chasing after the wind (no pun), it will dismiss conservative voices and promote anti-Christian action because there can be no two religions in their way of thinking. Climate change must be the monotheistic god!

Lies are everywhere. I give this as an example: The Bureau of Meteorology, Australia, very fanatical about climate change, a year or two ago, decided to dismiss all records before 1930. The reason for this is to say, “This is the hottest day on record,” and other such deceptions. However, note the following:

** The worst cyclone ever recorded was in 1899 (that is a typhoon or hurricane), called Cyclone Mahina, when 300 people were killed, and there was a tidal surge of over 8 meters. That now won’t count in records.

** The worst drought in Australia’s history was the Federation drought in the late 1890s to 1904. The whole of the eastern half of Australia was in an unbelievable drought. Most creeks and rivers dried up. Nothing like it has happened since. Now that won’t count in records.

** The worst flood in Australia’s history was in Brisbane in 1893. It was called The Black February Flood when Brisbane had 914 mm of rain in 24 hours (that’s around 39 inches). That now won’t count in records.

** The worst bushfires in Australia’s history were in the past. Black Thursday of 1851 was about the worst, but there were many.

Now, if there is a bushfire somewhere, they all scream climate change.

One obvious and disturbing point has emerged in all of this. There is a mindset among climate activist people that believes in the status quo.

In other words, everything continues on an even keel, and if something happens that upsets that balance, then it is caused by climate change. Therefore, every time there is a bush/brushfire, or a hurricane or a flood, or a higher temperature, or a volcano (and some even claim earthquakes), then it is all climate change! Funny how you don’t hear from them when there are record low temperatures.

These climate change fanatics are the kings of lying deception. The deluded are deluding the deluded. Take that girl from Sweden with her chaotic reasoning. National Geographic is filling every issue with climate change hysteria. Christians must stand back from this movement, as it is not Christian and very dangerous.

The world is being rounded up into one, whether you like it or not. Christians are not of the world.

ENERGY

The socialist left is taking action to shut down Australia’s coal mines and force the country into windmills and solar panels.

They want to end cars running on what they call “fossil fuels” and force people into electric cars. In recent days, the price of oil has boomed in the world because oil is in short supply. There are energy problems and shortages in Britain, China, the US, and so many other places. That means electricity and power. Petrol prices in some parts of Australia are nearing $2 a liter. That is about $9 a gallon for you Americans.

What does an energy crisis mean? It means shortages that fuel people’s frustrations.

It leads to violence. The cost of living and inflation multiply. The poorer end of society moves into times of hardship and poverty. It helps fuel lawlessness. It drives the cost of electricity way up. People begin to lose their jobs, and the already inflated welfare system becomes even more bloated.

All this will add unrest to the last days and will create the fertile ground for the acceptance of the world leader when he is revealed on the white horse.

The last days see wicked men proceed from bad to worse. All our Christian foundations are being overturned and replaced by evil legislation.

It is alarming, but we must not be alarmed. Remember, the Lord has told us all these things will happen and will only get worse and more severe. It is hard not to focus on the terrible state of the world as I have done in this article, but we are to recognize it for what it is. We don’t accept it, but we must understand the direction it is going in.

What a dreadful thing it would be if all we have to look forward to is a terrible time of God’s wrath in the most horrifying times of earth’s history. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ that He promised us that we are going to be delivered from the coming wrath (the Tribulation). He told us we are not appointed (destined) to wrath. The Christian and wrath (judgment of God) will not have an appointment! Our appointment is a meeting in the sky.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus. I will close with a poem written last month that has thrilled me in the writing of it, and I hope it will thrill you too. God bless us all.

Ron

TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY

To be absent from the body,
To be present with the Lord;
To be robed in linen garments
With eternal life unflawed.
I will be then in His presence,
Where the saints of God will shine,
And that blessed sinless pleasure –
O, that joy will then be mine.

Heaven’s call will soon come to us
With utter joy and gladness.
To victory’s voice we will rise,
And leave this world of sadness.
In an instant changed forever,
In the power of His might,
And the glories then of heaven
Will be wondrous in our sight.

It was grace that sought and saved us;
Nothing of it we deserved;
But wonders, grace has granted us
That in heaven are reserved.
We will see our splendid Saviour,
Gathered with His ransomed throng.
Their faces shine with radiance,
As they praise their Lord in song.

To be absent from the body,
To be present with the Lord,
And we long for that appearing,
As we rise to our reward.
The Lord descends and changes us
In the twinkling of an eye.
Before us His perfection shines,
And faultless, we’ll never die.

Old Senile Joe Biden Hasn’t Held a Cabinet Meeting or a Press Conference Since July – Too Exhausted? — The Gateway Pundit


Biden continues his legacy of empty rallies, no pressers, no cabinet meetings, no enthusiasm and no supporters.  Only fools would believe this guy won 81 million votes in the 2020 Election.

Mike LaChance at American Lookout reported on Biden’s last press conference:

The last time Joe Biden held a press conference was in July. It’s now mid-October, meaning that it has been over 90 days since he last stood at the podium and took questions from reporters.

It is just like when he was campaigning last year, but now instead of hiding in his basement, he is hiding in the White House.

In addition, Biden hasn’t held a Cabinet Meeting since July as well.  Biden’s White House released a document with his remarks after his last meeting.

This is reminiscent of Biden’s non-existent rallies in the months up to the 2020 Election.  We kept track of the details of each candidate’s rallies before the 2020 Election.  From Labor Day through the Election, President Trump entertained 1.1 MILLION rally-goers while Biden entertained less than 2,000 people.

FAKE JAB Caught on Tape: Endless Injections Target Kids & Military While Leaders Opt Out

That country has full-blown COVID passports. Vaccination is mandatory for all workplaces. It’s mandatory if you want to take a driver’s test. Soon, getting non-emergency medical care of any kind will require taking a PCR test, and the government is considering imposing higher medical insurance costs on the unvaccinated as well, for their supposed “increased risk.”

So this is a real Covid passport regime, and to have a valid one, it’s not enough to have two shots. You have to have the booster as well, and when this booster starts expiring they’ll almost certainly require four shots, then five, then six, for who knows how long. In effect, the country has become the test laboratory for the Pfizer corporation.

But does everyone really need to get these shots? If you’re important enough, maybe you’re exempt.

 

Is the FDA Worthy of Trust? | Anti-Empire

FDA Approved Institutional trust is at an all-time low, but that doesn’t seem to include the FDA, if headlines are to be believed. After a summer of free donuts, the agency’s approval of the Covid-19 vaccine was supposed to be the gold star to make any remaining hesitants into true believers.

And yet.

Having just approved the Pfizer vaccine at the end of August, and a Pfizer-only booster shot less than a month later, the FDA is staying under the public eye as a new experimental drug from Merck, and the same vaccines being dosed for 5 to 11 year olds, await the agency’s approval. Following the Red Sea parting that has been the latest vaccine mandates, the public’s willingness to swallow this new pill may be a good indicator of whether the agency has remained unstained by the general muck. Either way, it is worth considering whether the FDA’s behavior actually merits such trust, whatever the public opinion in your chosen echo chamber. After all, its approval is the golden ticket that allows doctors to prescribe a new drug, thus enabling the steady stream of cash from insurance companies to pharmaceuticals, and enabling you to feel the physical realities of that drug, for better or worse.

What does it mean for a drug to be safe? The FDA does not claim its approval of a given drug guarantees safety, nor could it. To conservatives who reject a philosophy of total risk aversion, this should not be troubling; the warning against safetyism cuts both ways, after all, meaning if we’re in favor of personal responsibility rather than government overreach in controlling the effects of certain viruses, we’re also for personal responsibility in accepting the potential risks of a drug when we take it. While the purpose of the FDA is to prevent some truly horrendous concoctions from reaching public use, we also are responsible to choose wisely—which, as an aside, assumes we have a choice.

But personal responsibility works in tandem with public trust, which must be earned. What we can and should expect of the FDA is basic competency, honesty, as well as independence from special interests, to merit this trust. As it turns out, the nature of the process by which the agency determines a drug is safe for prescription, and the nature and number of their past failures, suggests theirs is not a stamp worth its standard in health and safety, much less science.

Let’s examine.

FDA approval, that thin line that stands between you and whatever a lab has lately produced, can be determined by as few as one successful study. This evidence can be, and often is, provided to the agency by the company that makes the medical product, meaning that a drug manufacturer that wishes to have its product approved performs its own clinical trials. The FDA then examines the trial before deciding whether the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks to those who would take it. What that actually means is whether it’s better than nothing, and only in the short term. As of 201437 percent of approved drugs were only backed by a single study and 68 percent compared new drugs only to placebos, rather than to previously existing drugs. (A 2013 study in the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics (JLME) showed about 90 percent of all new drugs approved by the FDA since the 1980s are little or no more effective for patients than previously existing drugs.)

The name Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals probably wasn’t familiar to you until recently. The pharmaceutical company provided monoclonal antibody treatments for Covid earlier this year, before the U.S. government paused distribution in March. The government just purchased another round of Lilly’s antibody treatments in September. In the late 1980s, Lilly conducted a series of 20 studies in order to prove the effectiveness of their antidepressant drug, Prozac. Only three studies were ever submitted to the FDA for approval; the other 17 failed. Dr. Alexander Bingham, clinical psychologist and professor of Psychological Research at John F. Kennedy University, once described this approval process to Drugwatch: “By its own report, the FDA challenged the validity of all three studies, citing both procedural and statistic errors, and denied Lilly approval for Prozac twice,” Bingham said. Yet, after Lilly submitted its third data set, the FDA approved the drug. According to Bingham, there were no new trials between the failed attempts and the successful one, “only statistical manipulation and repackaging of existing data to create more favorable results.”

Follow the money. As the JLME paper points outpart of this racket was started in 1992 when user fees were authorized, after AIDS activists protested the agency’s slow review process in the 1980s. The Prescription Drug User Fee Act allowed drugmakers to pay the FDA to hire more reviewers. As NPR reported in 2020, “the FDA collected $29 million in fees in 1993, the year after Congress passed the Prescription Drug User Fee Act for the first time. The fees rose to $908 million in 2018. That year, industry fees amounted to about 80% of the money spent on FDA employee salaries for drug reviews.”

The introduction of user fees flipped the agency’s priorities entirely. Pharmaceutical companies became the client, rather than the U.S. taxpayer and potential patient. Infected with the industry’s demand for speedy authorization, and pharmaceutical dollars, the FDA’s average review time has shortened significantly in recent years, down to 10.1 months in 2018, compared with 2.8 years between 1986 and 1992. Meanwhile, former FDA commissioners become Pfizer board members after they retire from the agency with no one batting an eye. The military industrial complex is getting a run for its dark money from the other MIC on the block—the medical industrial complex.

This rapid approval has come at the cost of serious health considerations, and, in some cases, several lives.

One 2016 study, in the International Journal of Health Services, found that for every 100 new FDA approved drugs, 27 were withdrawn for serious safety reasons in the first 16 years after a drug’s approval.

The study authors wrote:

FDA approves new drugs significantly faster than the regulatory bodies of Europe, Canada, and Japan. Unlike the United States, most European Union countries require that new drugs undergo a secondary review process comparing their efficacy to the existing standard of care before health insurance plans will pay for them. Furthermore, the European Union, Canada, and Japan prohibit direct-to-consumer advertising, which is known to increase prescribing of the advertised drug.

Which means that instead of further clinicals, the general population plays the role of that secondary trial. Serious problems with drugs are not discovered until five or so years after they are approved, often after the drug has been prescribed to thousands of patients. And again, nearly one third of all FDA approved drugs were involved in some kind of safety event after they hit the market. Prescriptions for such drugs have passed 100 million since the agency’s conception.

Among the most famous FDA drug recalls is Chantix, a Pfizer anti-smoking drug which was later discovered to contain high levels of cancer-causing nitrosamines. Another recall, Accutane, was a strong anti-acne drug often prescribed to young women with a side of birth control to control the drug’s side effects, which included cycle irregularities. Accutane was on the market for 27 years before it was recalled for increasing the risk of birth defects, miscarriages, and premature births when used by pregnant women, among other side effects, including increased suicidal tendencies. One listing of FDA recalls reports: “Over 7,000 lawsuits were filed against the manufacturer [of Accutane] over the side effects including a $10.5 million verdict and two $9 million verdicts.”

Another Pfizer drug, Rezulin, an anti-diabetic and anti-inflammatory medication, was recalled after at least 90 patients experienced liver failures and at least 63 died.

It’s by this standard that the Covid-19 vaccine has been made mandatory for every single active duty member of the military, every government contractor, and soon, every employee of a business above a certain threshold. By this standard, state travel has been restricted, as Americans can no longer visit every state in the union without showing proof that they’ve gotten the newest drug. And it is this agency’s analysis of your risk versus the pharmaceutical’s benefit that is on its way to preventing you from entering businesses freely.

In the words of Shakespeare’s greatest and worst hero, “In the fatness of these pursy times / Virtue itself of vice must pardon beg.”

If US Companies and the Government Fire All Americans Who Refuse the COVID Vaccine it will Severely Damage the Economy Already in Distress — The Gateway Pundit

The numbers are too great.   The estimate of Americans who have not taken the jab and who refuse to take the jab is too great.  If US companies begin firing Americans for not taking the jab, it’s not only unconstitutional, it will severely damage the economy already in distress.

The Conservative Treehouse put the numbers together and based on these calculations if US government entities and companies fire everyone who refuses to take the COVID vaccine, the economy will come to a halt.

There are 205 million legally eligible U.S. workers between 15 and 74-years-old (census figures) with a workforce participation rate of 61% (BLS figures) which would equal 125 million legally eligible workers.   However, the Bureau of Labor Statistics puts the number of working Americans at 161 million workers (BLS figures).  The majority of the difference between the two figures are most likely illegal alien workers (yeah, lots of them).

Approximately 40 percent of the eligible population are not working.  Some people are single family income (wives or husbands who don’t work), and some are just people who choose not to work, cannot work or have not yet started to work (college etc).  With somewhere between 125 million and 161 million workers doing the jobs that keep the country functioning, there are also approximately 10 million unfilled job openings.

According to the most recent statement from Joe Biden on October 14th: “We’re down to 66 million — it’s still an unacceptably high number — of unvaccinated people from almost 100 million in July.”  Approximately 60 million of those are within the current U.S. workforce.

If we split the difference (census -vs- BLS) and take the mid-point at 140 million workers, then 60 million workers refusing the vaccine mandate represents about 40 percent of the entire population of eligible workers.  Put another way, in the best case scenario, if 60 million people quit working or were fired, the national unemployment rate would be at least 35% !

What we call the United States doesn’t function with 35% unemployment; systems of commerce start to collapse, then government, then civil society.

The U.S. economy is currently functioning with 5% unemployment and 10 million unfilled jobs.  Just imagine the economic impact of 35% unemployment and 70 million unfilled jobs.

Why would the Biden/Obama gang push a vaccine on its people that is proving to be unhealthy and doesn’t work and then kill the economy in the process?  Nothing about this makes sense if you believe they want to keep America free and prosperous.

THOUSANDS of Italians Protest Government Mandated Vaccine Requirement for Work — The Gateway Pundit

Italy led the way with the economy-killing COVID economic shutdowns worldwide.  Now the government of Italy is requiring that all citizens have the COVID vaccine before going back to work.  Italians are standing up against this insanity.

In March 2020 China, responsible for COVID and all the related deaths and trillions in economic destruction, invested in a massive social media campaign in Italy to push for economy-killing COVID lockdowns.  Italy was the first country to do so and it was then used by the mad doctors in the US to push for the same.

CONFIRMED: China Launched a Massive Social Media Campaign in March to Get Countries to Adopt Stringent Coronavirus Lockdowns and Destroy Their Economies

Now Italy is leading the way again with vaccine mandates requiring all Italians to have evidence of taking the vaccine before being allowed to work.

Dock workers in Trieste, Italy, have gone on strike in protest of the need that all employees present a Covid card.

The Green Pass indicates whether you have received the Covid vaccination, whether you have recovered from it, or whether you have tested negative.

On Friday, it became required in all Italian businesses.

Approximately 2,000 employees have congregated at the port of Trieste, which serves northern Italy, Germany, Austria, and central Europe.

It is believed that over three million Italian employees are currently unvaccinated.

Only 40% of the 950 port workers in Trieste have received the vaccine. Workers at other ports, such as Genoa, have threatened to disrupt supply networks as well.

Italians are again protesting the COVID mandate for workers today.

More on the protests below.

Locals brought food in for the protestors on Friday.

The Italian government has decided to eliminate individual rights in the name of COVID.
