Resistance is Futile!

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain (i.e., futile) thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed . . . .  (Psalm 2:1-2)


I always thought I was the only one who drew a parallel between Star Trek's cube-dwelling Borg and the foursquare city of New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:16). Each respective cube lies suspended in space (the heavens).

Post Apocalyptic Society

I like post-apocalyptic films. I see The Book of Eli as a high water mark in the production of such films. As I like to interpret it, the movie ends with a hope that the Word of God will provide the foundation for a new beginning for society & culture.

Christ's Alternative to Armed Revolt, 5

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16)

So far, we have seen that our Lord and King, Jesus, has commissioned His people to subdue the nations to His rule (Matthew 28:16-20). In the passage above, you can see how He calls His people to act as . . . .

War Upon the Middle Class -- Who? Why?

Over the past few years, both secular conservative and Christian observers have chronicled a concerted effort that amounts to a war upon the middle class in America. The attacks come from all directions: civil government, education, arts & media and more than a few religious leaders.

Most will lay the blame for these attacks at the feet of Marxists and liberal Democrats. Of course Christians see the hand of Satan behind this, but they generally identify the earthly perpetrators in terms of Marxism and Liberalism.

The Christian Warrior: Mission & Strategy

Re: The Christian warrior must understand the King's broader mission and strategy in order to contribute to ultimate victory.

Before you look to the future, sometimes it helps you gain perspective if you look back. Thus, to better understand and apply the mission and strategy set down in Scripture to the world situation today, perhaps it would help to look at a monumental failure to accomplish that mission as seen in world history.

The early North African Church of the fifth century (Period of Augustine) had become a bastion of the faith. Seminaries flourished – the greatest teachers and apologists coming from there. The whole society had become generally Christian, but had adopted dualistic theology in its last century. The problem was that Manichaean (dualistic) philosophy had infected the church. This form of mysticism taught that the world is evil. Anything physical only hampers the Christian life. Thus, spirituality is determined by what one does not have. Furthermore, premillennialism, familiar bedfellow with mysticism, had convinced the Christian world that Christ would remove them from carnal encumbrances. He did, but not the way their theology anticipated. 

A false prophet, Mohammed, came down from the mountain with a monistic world view and totally eradicated Christianity in that area. The pacifistic, pietistic church was no match. Did God bless this view of spirituality No. The church has never regained that area of the world. Today, it is still the toughest mission field. Perhaps that is because missions generally have the same theology as the early North African Church. (James Jordan, "The Church as a Shadow Government" in The Tactics of Christian Resistance, Christianity & Civilization #3)

The Church in North Africa had neglected the implications of Christ's command to disciple the nations and to teach them to obey His every command. (Matthew 28:19-20) Moreover, they had neglected the strategy He had laid down in His teaching.

Look, for example, at two of our Lord's parables:

The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. (Matthew 13:31-33)

The first parable expresses the breadth of the Kingdom of God. From a small and seemingly insignificant beginning, it grows to dominate the field -- the earth -- in which it stands.

The second parable teaches that the rule of the kingdom is not something imposed on society from outside. It involves a transformation of the social fabric from the inside out. This means not only winning souls, but also placing converts into Christian communities where they can function in a Biblically oriented alternative to the surrounding culture.

Now, I'm not referring to some schlock-y, evangelical, smile-Jesus-loves-you ghetto that apes the prevailing culture. I'm talking about a city set on a hill that shows new Christians (and the world) how God intends for His people to function in communion and community.

This strategy entails a commitment to display the glory of God through institutional and cultural expressions that conform to His Word. I believe that Christ's Great Commission requires that we thoughtfully structure our community of faith as laboratories of the Spirit such that any observer can see what Christianity looks like when applied to marriage and family, education, business, architecture, self defense (and you knew I would get there, didn't you?) or any other social expression that you can think of.

The Church in the U.S. has made some piecemeal efforts in some of these areas -- notably in Christian schools, home education and family nurture -- but it has lacked the vision of community life in a comprehensively Biblical context. To be faithful to the fullness of the Great Commission, churches must think of worship services, Bible classes and prayer meetings as the hub rather than the whole of Christian community.

When communities of believers accept the mission that the King has laid upon them, they will see that the answer to the ever growing tyranny of Washington lies neither in political action nor in armed revolt. It lies, rather, in a faithful demonstration of the way things ought to be done -- God's way (Deuteronomy 30:16).

James Jordan, in the essay quoted above, has referred to this function of the Church community as a shadow government.


When one sphere like the state collapses, the church is left to fill the gap. She cannot, however, take the place of the state and pick up the sword. Like a Christian wife married to a rebellious husband, the church must bring the civil sphere to obedience by proper activity in its own category. The best description of this role is shadow government. A shadow government is understood as representing the true government, acting and waiting in the shadows for the present system to fall. When it does, the shadow government becomes the ruling government, or appoints another to take proper rule.


Jordan makes it plain that he's not advocating that ecclesiocracy (political rule by church) displace civil authority. He simply means what Jesus said: that it's the Church's job to show nations how to govern themselves under the rule of Christ.

As the institutional structures of society -- including but not limited to civil government -- become moribund and begin to collapse under the weight of their humanistic presuppositions, the King intends for His people to be waiting in the wings with alternative solutions that follow His principles (i.e., that really work).

The Banyan Tree

Earlier I referred to the parables of the mustard seed and of the leaven in the dough. It occurs to me that had His listeners know of the banyan tree, Jesus might have combined the two parables into one.

The Kingdom of God is like a banyan tree.

The banyan tree, which grows in India, Southeast Asia and Indonesia, is a variety of fig with a distinctive growth pattern. Birds eat the figs of the banyan, and when they relieve themselves, some of the seeds lodge in crevices of other kinds of trees, which become the hosts.

The seeds germinate and send down roots towards the ground, and may envelop part of the host tree or building structure with their roots . . . .

Older banyan trees are characterized by their Aerial prop roots that grow into thick woody trunks which, with age, can become indistinguishable from the main trunk. Old trees can spread out laterally using these prop roots to cover a wide area. (Wikipedia)

You see, the banyan tree grows parallel, alternative structures to the host tree and eventually displaces it altogether. This precisely depicts God's kingdom as we see it portrayed in the teachings of Christ.

We Rest on Thee, Our Shield and our Defender!


I remember, as a boy, gazing with horror at the pictures of bodies in Life Magazine as they lay face down in the river, spears sticking out of them. I also remember Elizabeth Elliott's book Through Gates of Splendor on our shelf at home.

The death of five missionaries slaughtered by the Auca Indians in January of 1956 reverberated through the Christian world. So did the song they sang before embarking on what would be their last mission: "We Rest on Thee, Our Shield and Our Defender".

 Elizabeth Elliott, wife to one of the slain used a line from that hymn as the title of her book about the five missionaries. The book, and the event that inspired it . . . .

The Christian Warrior's Mission Impossible

Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:16-20)

Mission Impossible?

Let me paraphrase what Jesus said to His disciples in this Great Commission: "Since I am the ultimate authority, I want you to take over the world and bring all its nations under My rightful rule. You are not to do this by force of arms or political machinations. You are to conquer the world by converting and discipling the nations. You must also transform their pagan/humanistic cultures by teaching them to observe everything I've taught you. You won't be in this alone and in your own power, for I will be with you."

Any way you look at it, that's a pretty tall order. It goes way beyond what we normally think of as evangelism, or even world missions. In fact, it's so far out of line with what most churches teach, that evangelical Christians tend to dismiss it out of hand. Here's a dialogue based on actual objections raised to me  by people who call themselves Bible-believing Christians.

Objection: It won't work; it's impossible.

Answer: While I believe it is possible, it makes no difference; it's the mission assigned to us

Objection: This would sidetrack us from the main business of the Church: saving souls.

Answer: It's the mission our Lord assigned to us, and it includes saving souls.

Objection: That's not how I interpret the passage.

Answer: But that's what the passage says in clear terms -- disciple all nations and teach them to obey Christ.

Of course the mission is not easy; it's well-nigh impossible. So is healing the blind, lame j& sick with a touch, raising the dead and saving sinners in rebellion against God. Yet, Jesus has done all these things, and He has promised to be with us as we carry out our mission.

Your mission, should you decide to accept it -- and the King leaves no room for the idea that His command is optional -- requires that you think strategically and tactically about how to accomplish it. A serious consideration of Matthew 28:16-20 will require that your church recognize and organize itself in terms of that mission. It will also require that you teach your converts a new, Biblical worldview, and that you teach them to think self-consciously and to act in terms of that worldview.

In other words, to understand the Great Commission correctly and purpose to obey it will necessitate enormous changes in the way you view and conduct yourself, your family and your church.

Does the CIA Spy on American Citizens?

Note: Watch Monday's blog for a big announcement about changes in the works now.

According to law, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) may not spy on Americans here at home. However, that does not keep them from outfitting and training local police departments to do it for them.

According to an Associated Press report, a New Brunswick, NJ building superintendent accidentally stumbled upon an intelligence operations center of the New York City Police Dept. (NYPD). It turns out that the police received special training and equipment in order to establish their covert intelligence operation.

Now, if the CIA did all this for NYPD, how much do you want to bet that there's a quid pro quo stream of information being fed back to the federal spy agency? Also, if New York has a CIA sponsored spy operation, how much do you want to bet that Washington, D.C. police already have -- or soon will have -- a similar setup (ditto other major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles or Boston)?

Pedophilia Warning

Now that homosexuals have achieved protected status under federal policy, it appears that pedophiles (i.e., child molesters) are positioning themselves as the next politically correct protected lifestyle group. This came out at an August conference of the pedophilia advocacy group B4U-ACT held in Baltimore, MD.

Here are some excerpts from the article "Time to Naturalize Pedophilia" as it appeared in the Patriot Update:


Highlights of the conference:
  • Pedophiles are “unfairly stigmatized and demonized” by society.
  • There was concern about “vice-laden diagnostic criteria” and “cultural baggage of wrongfulness.”
  •  “We are not required to interfere with or inhibit our child’s sexuality.”
  • “Children are not inherently unable to consent” to sex with an adult.
Also,

A consensus belief by both speakers and pedophiles in attendance was that, because it vilifies MAPs, pedophilia should be removed as a mental disorder from the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), in the same manner homosexuality was removed in 1973.


And,


Self-descried [sic] “gay activist” and speaker Jacob Breslow said that children can properly be “the object of our attraction.” He further objectified children, suggesting that pedophiles needn’t gain consent from a child to have sex with “it” any more than we need consent from a shoe to wear it. He then used graphic, slang language to favorably describe . . . [I cut off the rest of this quote, because I believe it is unfit for a family-oriented blog.]


Prediction: As this movement gains momentum, the public school system will become even more infested with child molesters, and it will become ever more difficult to prosecute them.


Prediction: Soon, just as same-sex perverts sling around the term homophobia, the child molestation movement will come up with a pseudo-clinical term to describe moral people who want to protect their children. And then, the whole protection concept will be turned on its head, as the establishment seeks t0 protect children from pedo-phobes (or whatever).


Prediction: The great majority of preachers will fall just as silent on child molestation as they have on homosexuality. 


Sound too fantastic to be true? That's how same-sex perversions sounded in mainstream America not too long ago.


Sadly, I also predict that, if you presently let the establishment take your children on the big, yellow bus to the place where they receive instruction on homosexuality as a lifestyle option, you will probably also allow the statist schools to indoctrinate them regarding pedophilia.

WWI Hand-to-Hand "Training Video"

While I doubt that the army used the video below for training purposes in World War I, it does contain footage of WWI training as it took place. The action looks fast and choppy because it was played at today's projector speed which differs from that of this film's era.

1909 Middleweight Champ Mike Gibbons demonstrates the boxing techniques, and Captain Allan C. Smith leads in the Jujitsu demonstrations. You will find my comments below the video



Boxing punches are much faster than traditional karate punches, and contests -- sans kicking, of course -- of boxers vs. karate practitioners have borne out their superior effectiveness. I have discussed the advisability of striking with a closed fist as opposed to open hand strikes here.

The come-along holds demonstrated in the video might have some practical application for military police, but I fail to see its application in hand-to-hand on the battlefield. The nest series demonstrates the palm heel to the chin and the palm heel in combination with the knee to the groin and shows that these techniques were around long before Fairbairn incorporated them into his system of combatives.

Interesting use of games to teach teamwork & coordinated effort.

I know I didn't cover it all. That will leave room for you to comment. Please do.

Another Short Roster of Terrorist Acts

In "A Short Roster of Terrorist Acts" I tried to show the terrifying extent of encroachments by the police state. I meant to assemble reports of these abuses because when you see piecemeal reports, you tend not to relate it to the reports you've seen in previous days and weeks.

With that in mind, you may want to review the first post (see link above) to help you keep the total picture in mind. The power of the police state is growing exponentially and seeks to encompass all of life.

Roster Entry #4

Here's a link to an article about an FBI publication circulated to surplus stores.

FBI wants businesses watching for customers paying with cash Government calls buying 'night flashlights,' making 'extreme religious statements' indicators of terrorism

So, if you use cash, you may be a terrorist. If you buy a "night flashlight" you may be a terrorist. (Aren't flashlights made to be used at night?) If you speak about your faith, you may be a terrorist.

Here's another link that reveals the FBI has determined that you may be a terrorist if you use an almanac:


I know that I've made the point before, but here it is again: Exactly who is being terrorized here?

Roster Entry #5

I'm sure you've already heard about these terrorists, but it deserves honorable mention here. T.E.A. Party people -- people who believe that civil government is not above the law -- are dangerous terrorists.

Roster Entry #6

Finally, some good news! You don't have to worry about all those terrorists --people who believe in limited government,  who pay cash, who eat unprocessed foods, who use flashlights at night, and who have the audacity to make videos of public servants. It seems the feds intend to make society safe by putting all these terrorists into American Internment Camps.



Roster Entry #7

This final group may not technically fall into the terrorist category, but they are definitely bad people. I'm referring, of course to parents.

On second thought, if these parents resist social workers who try to take away their children in order to fill quotas, then maybe the powers that be will consider them terrorists after all.





If you think the Protective Services abuses cited above represent isolated cases, check the videos below:

Nancy Schaeffer: CPS Profits from Seizing Children

Alex Jones: CPS Exposed (at least one instance of crude language)

Did you notice the oft recurring references to financial incentives? The opportunity for pedophiles who work in the system to abuse children seems to be merely the frosting on the cake.

Tactical Objectives -- Across the Board

He who fights and runs away
Lives to fight another day.  (Old maxim of unconventional warfare)

Recently I decided to re-read Anthony Herbert's book Soldier. He has a lot to say about tactics, and that has prodded me to think about a principle, a tactical approach, that I believe applies across the board to an individual or to groups.

In any violent (or potentially violent) encounter, the strategic objective is always to neutralize the threat. Many think of neutralization in terms of defeating an attacker. I hope you see that avoidance, evasion and escape will also neutralize a threat and deprive an enemy of realizing his own objectives.

Once you make violent contact with an enemy, however, the opportunity for avoidance and evasion has, by definition, passed. Further, if you focus on escape alone, you may incur more injury than if you simply stand and fight.

For an individual (or a small group) facing superior strength, numbers or firepower, I think the record shows the following course of action to provide the best means of survival:
  1. Foul up your enemy's attack -- It's easier to mess up any operation than it is to execute one, so make Murphy's Law work for you.
  2. Seize the initiative and take advantage of any and every opening
    a) to hurt or stun opponent just long enough . . .
    b) to take advantage of any avenue of escape that opens.
Of course such tactics work best if the enemy does not take you by surprise. For small groups, the OP/LP and the reconnaissance patrol provide the necessary intel. The tactical triad on patrol or the individual on the street must rely on alertness to short circuit the enemy's intended surprise attack.

Fighting Men: WWII Training Video

I think you'd call this more of a motivational/mindset video than a training video, but this WWII film has some interesting points. I want to address some of those points below the video.



First, it says that in war, the rule book goes out the window. I understand why it says that -- in the face of the enemy, the main rule is kill or be killed. That's Biblical.

But that does not mean that anyone can wage warfare altogether without rules -- ethical standards. Look at Deuteronomy chapter 20 for an example of the Biblical ethics of warfare.

Another thing that stands out to me in the film is the one fight between the G.I. and the German soldier. The one where the German fakes out an American, shoots him, and another American comes upon the scene.

The fight that ensues impressed me because it is not all neat and tidy with clean techniques. It's a lot more like a real life fight for life -- dirty chaos.

What impressed you about the video? Good points or bad, I'd like to hear about them in the comments section.

All Authority and Power

Christopher M. Idle, author of the stirring hymn "All Authority and Power", based it upon Christ's Great Commission (Matthew 28: 18-20) along with passages like Romans 10 and Philippians 2. I marvel that some can sing this song and yet maintain that the Great Commission contains no cultural component.

How can Jesus' rightful claim to reign over the rulers of the nations have no cultural impact? Not even on such cultural expressions as abortion, homosexual marriage and the [godless/demonic] education of our children?

The Great Commission plainly states that we must teach the nations to obey all that Jesus commanded. If "all the clear commands of Jesus must be heeded and obeyed," how can we avoid the cultural implications of what He said about interpersonal relationships -- family, brethren, neighbors and even enemies?

Below the hymn you will find the text of a little tract I printed up. It expresses the claims of Christ as found in Matthew 28, Psalm 2 and other loci of Scripture.

Melody: Unser Herrscher (Click link to hear)


1 All authority and power,
ev'ry status and domain,
now belongs to one who suffered
our redemption to obtain;
angels, demons, kings and rulers,
over all shall Jesus reign!
2 All the nations owe him worship,
ev'ry tongue shall call him Lord;
how are they to call upon him
if his name they have not heard?
Therefore go and make disciples,
preach his gospel, spread his Word.
3 All the clear commands of Jesus
must be heeded and obeyed;
full provision for our weakness
in his teaching he has made;
in the Gospel words and symbols
saving truth to us conveyed.
4 All the time he will be with us,
always, to the end of days;
with his own believing people
who keep steadfast in his ways.
God the Father, Son and Spirit,
bless us, and to God be praise!
Jesus Christ is King
You cannot impeach Him
He will never resign
Therefore, the only sane and logical course is to acknowledge Him and submit to His rule as individuals, families, communities and nations.

Political Comment

In 2000, TX gov. George Bush courted the evangelical vote on the right hand and the homosexual vote on the left. He kept his promises to the homosexual bloc by appointing more open sexual perverts to office than any president before him -- including the morally bankrupt William Jefferson Clinton.

In 2012, another TX governor, Rick Perry, may follow in Bush's footsteps by bamboozling the ranks of evangelicaldom (and evangelicaldumber). He is running as an "Establishment Conservative" and an "approved evangelical".

Note the following facts:
  1. "Perry supported Al Gore in the 1988 Democratic presidential primaries as chairman of the Gore campaign in Texas." (Wikipedia)
  2. Over half of his campaign contributions come from "mega donors", which ties him in with the ruling elite. (Miami Herald)
  3. Like Bush, Perry has ties with the Pharmaceutical industry, and uses government power to countermand parental authority and enhance big pharma's profits ("In 2007, Perry issued an executive order requiring Texas girls entering the sixth grade to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted virus, the human papillomavirus. The outcry from parents and lawmakers that mandating Gardasil, a Merck & Co. vaccine, amounted to state interference in parental decisions led the Texas Legislature to rescind his order.. . . Amid the controversy were charges of cronyism because Perry's former chief of staff, Mike Toomey, was a Merck lobbyist. Perry denied any favoritism." (Miami Herald, op. cit.)
  4. Perry has attempted to trample on the property rights of small businesses and homeowners through eminent domain, and he tried to funnel taxpayer money to foreign-owned corporations. ("Trans-Texas Corridor: Perry introduced the ambitious concept in 2002 of a network of corridors linking major Texas cities, with toll roads for cars and trucks, tracks for freight and passenger rail, and rights of way for power lines and pipelines. But the $175 billion, 4,000-mile network was immediately controversial, as Perry signed a contract with a Spanish consortium to build it and then used eminent domain powers to acquire private land. After sustained public opposition, the state abandoned the large-scale project - and its name, which had become toxic - in 2009 in favor of some highways and smaller projects." -- Miami Herald, op. cit.)
Yes, I know that Perry gave money to orphans. John D. Rockefeller handed out dimes to children. In Rockefeller's case, it was done to help change his public image. Of course, no liberal-Democrat-turned-Republican would ever do such a thing, would he?

But, like Bush, Perry goes to church.  Rockefeller joined a Baptist church. Going to church does not automatically make one a born-again believer any more than walking into a garage makes me an Oldsmobile.

    Debt Ceiling Raised to Build Mosques?

    Over 25 years ago, I taught a high school Government & Economics course. When I pointed out various outrageous policies, not unlike the one in the video below, they were dumbfounded that "our government" would do such things.

    Couldn't our leaders see the destructive nature of such acts? Why do they do such things over and over and over again?



    I told my students that such things stop being a mystery once you stop assuming that the leaders are on our side.

    Lord, Keep Us Steadfast -- Martin Luther

    Thanks to my wife for sending me the following:


    Lord, keep us steadfast in Thy Word;
    Curb those who fain by craft and sword
    Would wrest the kingdom from Thy Son
    And set at naught all He hath done.

    Lord Jesus Christ, Thy pow’r make known,
    For Thou art Lord of lords alone;
    Defend Thy Christendom that we
    May evermore sing praise to Thee.

    O Comforter of priceless worth,
    Send peace and unity on earth.
    Support us in our final strife
    And lead us out of death to life.

    by Martin Luther

    Stouthearted Men

    I've always found this song stirring, even if some think it's corny. Here's the video, and the words are below it.

    When you think about it, this song expresses the major theme of stories like Rio Bravo, El Dorado, The Magnificent Seven, Tombstone and Silverado to name just a few (of the best). I want to dedicate this song to the memory of the brave men killed on the Chinook that was shot down in Afghanistan.

    >
    YOU WHO HAVE DREAMS,

    IF YOU ACT THEY WILL COME TRUE!

    TO TURN YOUR DREAMS TO A FACT,

    IT`S UP TO YOU!

    A Short Roster of Terrorist Acts

    Roster entry #1

    According to Homeland Security, citizens who use cameras are possible terrorists (see previous post). Evidently this standard of what constitutes terrorism has filtered down to the local level.

    This video of police brutalizing a citizen in front of his own home contains some cursing & "mild profanity":



    Note that the citizen told them that they could look at his i.d. to prove he lived there. At that point it became obvious that this was not the real issue for the police.

    He was arrested for "obstructing an officer." How would a video obstruct the officer?

    Merriam-Webster defines "obstruct" thus:

    1. : to block or close up by an obstacle
    2. : to hinder from passage, action, or operation : impede
    3. : to cut off from sight (a wall obstructs the view)

    The only way a video might hinder or impede an officer in this circumstance is if he was doing something he did not want either the general public or his superiors to know about. Think this is an isolated incident? Check out these videos.

    Source article & video can be found here.

    Roster entry #2

    What about those drug cartel terrorists? You know . . . the ones armed by ATF. Surely the police are justified to obtain no-knock warrants and use shock and awe against these low lifes. Right?

    Well, maybe. If they break into the right house.


    (Thanks to RPC for this link.)

    It turned out better for this homeowner than for Marine combat vet Jose Guerena, whom police murdered in a similar raid. (I posted on this here.)

    You, no doubt think that this, too, must be an isolated incident. Click this link for video reports of "wrong address" raids. In the People's Republic of Minnesota, they even handed out medals to officers who returned fire on a homeowner protecting his family -- again, at the wrong address (click here).

    Roster Entry #3

    Photographers and homeowners aside, we know who the real terrorists are, don't we? It's those !@#$% people who choose to eat fresh, unprocessed food straight from the farm.

    Here's an excerpt from an article over at Natural News:

    (NaturalNews) NaturalNews is now publishing some of the very first photos taken in the aftermath of the Rawesome Food raids, which involved a multi-agency raid against Rawesome Foods for selling unpasteurized milk and raw cheese (http://www.naturalnews.com/033220_R...). These photos show how Rawesome Foods has beenstripped bareby state and federal agents who engaged in what can only be called an act ofgovernment-sponsored terrorismagainst innocent small business owners.

    As NaturalNews reported earlier, the warrant that was issued to authorize the Rawesome Foods raid specifically stated that "various samples of any food products present may be taken for laboratory analysis." (http://www.naturalnews.com/033224_R...) But instead of taking only "various samples," the LA County Dept. of Agriculture authorities engaged inthe wholesale theft of the entirety of Rawesome Foods' inventory.


    Learn more:http://www.naturalnews.com/033225_Rawesome_Foods_photos.html#ixzz1U4gdvj1C
    (Thanks to my wife for this link)

    Here's a photo of just some of the empty shelves and cooler:



    Here's one of the truck used to haul away the co-op's entire inventory:



    We can't have terrorists opening co-ops that sell locally grown, unprocessed food to people who knowingly purchase it for their own and their families' health, can we? If we allowed this, pretty soon terrorist groups like this would pop up all over the country, and they might make a small dent in the profits of agribusiness and food cartel. Have no fear, though. The Dept. of Agriculture is here to protect us all from these terrorists.

    Here is commentary on the raid by Alex Jones:


    Surely this must be an isolated incident, an example of California's socialism run amok. No, for the food police have also been busy protecting us from Amish terrorists in Pennsylvania (click here), and a (shudder) homeschool family of organic food terrorists in Ohio that operates a co-op for neighbors who have opted out of patronizing the food cartel (click here). Then there's the inner city grocery-owner terrorist whom police raided for selling zip-loc bags (click here -- crude language by police). So, these must be isolated instances and not an expression of national policy, right? (Click here -- at least one instance of cursing) (And click here)

    Conclusion:

    Have you figured it out, yet? The real terrorists are not the citizens who want to be safe in their homes, who try to live safer, healthier, better lives. The real terrorists are the tyrants and their jackbooted enforcers who, for profit and power, terrorize the citizens of this nation.

    Don't be alarmed. That tightness in your throat merely comes from the snugging down of the noose.
