Rumors of War III Glenn Beck TV Examines Strategic Islamist Penetration of U.S.








The video titled Rumors of War III: Target U.S. aired on Glenn Beck TV (GBTV) April 25, 2012. It appeared for a few days on YouTube before being abruptly removed for an alleged copyright violation. The documentary runs about an hour and fourteen minutes. You can watch the video for free by signing up for a free 14-day trial subscription to Glenn Beck TV.

You can cancel your GBTV subscription before your 14-day free trial ends. You might find that the ten bucks per month to remain subscribed to GBTV is money well spent. Either way, you might find certain freeware, such as NCH Debut Video Capture Software, highly useful. Apply your imagination and ingenuity. Glenn Beck should appreciate the free advertising so many viewers can provide by sharing his documentary far and wide.

The documentary exposes connections between radical Islamic extremists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Barack Hussein Obama administration. There are undoubtedly a lot of people in high places who do not want you to see this documentary.


Also watch the YouTube video below, which was posted November 12, 2011. This video, titled New World Order 2012 - Shocking Proof, reveals that Saudi Arabia, years prior to the 2008 U.S. presidential elections, had declared that they would have a Muslim in the White House by 2008. Where did most of Obama's campaign funding come from? If you can't follow the money trail, why is it being covered up? Didn't Obama promise transparency of government? Why, then, does he remain to this day the single most unvetted and least transparent figure in American history?

Obama did not climb into the public view by himself or by his own merits. He was groomed and financed and seated by sinister operations hidden from public scrutiny. Observe the arrogance and the villainous debauchery that lurk in his countenance as he stares down his nose at the world. Obama himself admits he is only at the beginning of his labors on the world stage. What does that mean? Is he aiming for the lead seat in the New World Order?


Obama openly admitted that his accomplishments are slight when compared to giants of history. He feigns humility during an October 9, 2009 ceremony in which he was awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. This high honor has traditionally been reserved for persons of long and arduous accomplishment who have sacrificed a great deal to merit such an award. The Norwegian Nobel Committee simply handed the prize to Barack Hussein Obama and heaped praises upon him in spite of the fact that by his own admission he had done nothing to earn it.

One CNN News report implies that manipulation, staging, and favoritism played roles in shoeing an unworthy and unaccomplished candidate into the chute as a sure win for the 2009 Nobel Peace prize. The report stated, "Nominations for the prize had to be postmarked by February 1, only 12 days after Obama took office. The committee sent out its solicitation for nominations last September, two months before Obama was elected president."

We have descended into an abyss that disgraces our founding fathers and all they fought and bled to establish. Even our children are capable of understanding history's heroes if they ever get an uncensored chance at it, if they are not indoctrinated by the plague of modern liberalism and its bastard child, socialism, closely followed by the evil bastard twin, communism.

What is it going to take to get people to wake up? Remember this weblog. You've been warned. A vote in favor of the vile impostor who hides his own history and his aliases is, in effect, a demonization and a vilification of the Constitution and an open denial of the power of God by which the Constitution was conceived and realized. If you vote for Barack Hussein Obama again, may the abomination of desolation that is your just reward overtake you swiftly.

CISPA Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act Passes House 248-168 April 26, 2012








The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, called CISPA for short, has passed the House with a vote of 248 in favor and 168 opposed. This vote occurred a day earlier than publicly announced. It was announced as being scheduled for Friday, April 27, 2012, but was abruptly moved forward by a day, and occurred on Thursday, April 26, 2012. Let's hope the Senate does not pass this.

What does CISPA mean for Americans? Basically, it means you have absolutely no privacy once you power up your computer, or any computer, even the one at the local library or Kinko's or any other internet kiosk. Anything you do with a computer can and probably will be tracked, logged, analyzed, and flagged in some database to be used against you whenever convenient for the Government or its industry allies, like banks. You are being profiled.


By now, you should realize that whatever you post on Facebook or any other social media site is never deleted. Even though you may have clicked an option to remove your post from your timeline or delete your post, it's never gone. It's just no longer visible to you.

If I Wanted America to Fail - A YouTube Video Magnum Opus








I did not create this YouTube video, but I am immensely grateful to those who did. The message is piercingly clear and perfectly articulated. This is nothing short of a magnum opus. It's that good! This YouTube video was produced and published by FreeMarketAmerica and released April 20, 2012. The production was inspired by legendary ABC Radio commentator Paul Harvey's essay, If I Were the Devil. Paul Harvey shared his essay in his column and in his radio broadcasts beginning as early as 1964.

Below is a transcript of the monologue, If I Wanted America to Fail, included here for those who prefer to read it and search specific points expressed in the video. Ironically, it covers more truth in four and a half minutes than you could learn in an entire college course, and it does so in a manner that drives the point home to the core of your soul, if you still have one.

Following the transcript is a YouTube video of the classic speech by Paul Harvey titled, If I Were the Devil (Warning for a Nation), which aired April 3, 1965. It is also a magnum opus of foresight. It is even more applicable today than when it aired nearly half a century ago.


"If I wanted America to fail, to follow, not lead, to suffer, not prosper, to despair, not dream, I'd start with energy. I'd cut off America's supply of cheap, abundant energy. I couldn't take it by force, so I'd make Americans feel guilty about using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses and powers their economy. I'd make cheap energy expensive so that expensive energy would seem cheap. I would empower unelected bureaucrats to all but outlaw America's most abundant sources of energy. After banning its use in America, I'd make it illegal for American companies to ship it overseas.

If I wanted America to fail, I'd use their schools to teach one generation of Americans that their factories and their cars will cause a new ice age. And I'd muster a straight face, so I could teach the next generation that they're causing global warming. When it's cold out, I'd call it climate change, instead. I'd imply that Americas cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes. I'd teach children how to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining, and farming, while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes, and food on their tables. I would never teach children that the free market is the only force in human history to uplift the poor, establish the middle class, and create lasting prosperity. Instead, I'd demonize prosperity itself, so that they will not miss what they will never have.

If I wanted America to fail, I would create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones. They would be be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers, and lobbyists could understand them. That way, small businesses with big ideas wouldn't stand a chance. And I would never have to worry about another Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or Steve Jobs. I would ridicule as flat Earthers those who urge them to lower energy costs by increasing supply. And when the evangelists of common sense try to remind people about the laws of supply and demand, I'd enlist the sympathetic media to drown them out.

If I wanted America to fail, I would empower unaccountable bureaucracies seated in a distant capital to bully Americans out of their dreams and their property rights. I'd send federal agents to raid guitar factories for using the wrong kind of wood. I'd force homeowners to tear down their own homes built on their own land. I'd make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, miners to mine, loggers to log, and builders to build. Because I don't believe in free markets, I'd invent false ones. I'd devise fictitious products, like carbon credits, and trade them in imaginary markets. I'd convince people that this would create jobs and be good for the economy.

If I wanted America to fail, for every concern I'd invent a crisis, and for every crisis, I'd invent the cause. Like shutting down entire industries and killing tens of thousands of jobs in the name of saving spotted owls. And when everyone learned the stunning irony that the animals were victims of their larger cousins and not people, it would already be decades too late.

If I wanted America to fail, I'd make it easier to stop commerce than to start it, easier to kill jobs than create them, more fashionable to resent success than to seek it. When industries seek to create jobs, I'd file law suits to stop them, and then I'd make tax payer pay for my lawyers.

If I wanted America to fail, I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation to an economic suicide pact. I would concede entire industries to our economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost trillions. I would celebrate those who preach environmental austerity in public while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private. I'd convince Americans that Europe has it right and that America has it wrong.

If I wanted America to fail, I would prey on the goodness and the decency of ordinary Americans. I would only need to convince them that all of this is for the greater good.

If I wanted America to fail, I, I suppose I wouldn't change a thing."





In my own words, if I wanted America to fail, I would vote for Barack Hussein Obama or Barry Soetoro or Harrison J. Bounel, or whatever his name is.

The Modern Day Gadianton Golden Boy copyright © 2008 Ilyan Kei Lavanway






Modern Day Gadianton Golden Boy, This image of the all seeing eye represents the Illuminati and the secret practices of evil underway in the last days. Obama is a key player in the diabolical plot of these secret combinations, these modern day Gadianton robbers. Wake up, America.

The bulk of this narrative short story was composed in 2008 as a futuristic vision and remains largely unedited as presented here. Minor updates were added in 2012 to include reference to Birthers and Preppers and an alias, Harrison J. Bounel, uncovered in March, 2011. Barring sweeping cover-ups, information blackouts, and altered historical records, by 2016, you should find a preponderance of evidence to suggest this short story is more fact than fiction. This work reflects events of the recent past, blatantly exposes actual corruption, and warns you of events and conditions likely to manifest in the near future. It is a strongly biased and boldly unrestrained political thriller. It is intended to scare you.

It is intended to wake you up to the fact that your individual freedoms are being directly threatened and unabashedly extinguished as you read this, and mark my words, you will be personally affected by those now in public office. It is intended to inspire you to do something to preserve and restore the freedoms once upheld by the Constitution of the United States of America, and instill within you a sense of individual responsibility, if such is remotely possible.

If you remain among those who actively persist in proliferating the deceptions, corruptions, and tyrannies that erode individual rights and attack personal values, then you are ripe for the destructions spoken of by prophets both ancient and modern. The following narrative is intended to leave individual citizens without excuse if they insist on knowingly electing and supporting public officials who harbor deceptive agendas, relish covert power, and seek fame at the cost of innocence. Notice, I did not mention money. They already have plenty of yours.

Without further adieu, here it is.

A radical, leftwing, Islamic terrorist, having been groomed by rich, powerful, influential, and radical associates for a singular purpose infiltrates American politics and rises rapidly to power out of obscurity. After gaining a seat in the Illinois State Senate, he runs for and, by intricately orchestrated voter fraud, is elected president of the United States. His ascent to high executive office is heralded as a miracle, and though completely unvetted, he is practically worshipped by his supporters, not only in America, but around the world. No one remains neutral.

His presence on the political landscape generates a heated division and has a polarizing effect on all communities, domestic and foreign, drawing cheers of adoration and the fervor of blind discipleship from his followers, while simultaneously provoking fierce resolve and sober preparations among his opposition. New terms are coined among the general population, namely Birthers and Preppers.

Birthers are those who expose his ineligibility to legally occupy the White House based on the fact that he was never a United States citizen and is therefore not only an ineligible presidential candidate, but also an illegal alien. Preppers are survivalists. They see the writing on the wall. They read between the lines. They believe prophetic warnings about exactly the scenario they see unfolding as this diabolical despot unleashes a wave of deception that places him on par with Satan himself. Indeed, the two camps in this conflict much resemble the two camps pitted against each other in the great ante-mortal war that took place before the creation of this earth. The war where you fought for your very right to be born.

The infamous 9-11 was a cakewalk. As soon as this despot is elected, he begins appointing extreme leftwing officials into his cabinet positions. He appoints radical leftwing judges to the Supreme Court. He instigates domestic and international crises as covers for his secret plots to ruin or assassinate anyone occupying positions of influence he feels may effectively oppose him or expose him, now or in the future. He replaces them with his own cronies. He further operates behind these crises, astutely applying deceptive practices to position himself as a popular world leader and founder of a new world order in which he seeks sole authority to rule at his own whim, getting all others to do his bidding.

He has been directly involved in deliberately orchestrating crises to be executed on a specific timeline commencing more than two decades prior to his presidential election. In order to facilitate these crises, he has sought out and surrounded himself with only the most extreme and depraved individuals he could find. He has no normal friends. In fact, he has no friends at all. He only has colleagues and associates who seek a synergistic alliance with him, clamoring to ride his coat tails to the coveted positions of power and fame they believe he can deliver, as they see in him some mysteriously formidable potential.

Interestingly, his associates and colleagues also detect in him an addictive egomania, craving worship, praise, and power over everything within his grasp. They discern that his mind, though brilliant, even genius as pertaining to the influencing of people and the organizing of groups of any size and demographic, is also an astonishingly weak mind, devoid of substance, integrity, and the kind of deep-rooted convictions that give most normal individuals a sense of morality and a conscience. His distinct lack of such attributes leaves him vulnerable to the things he covets most and easily manipulated by those who are able and willing to help him achieve what he wants.

As long as he sees himself as the one coming out ahead and on top in every situation, he is perfectly willing to blindly and falsely promise whatever it takes to get people to do what he wants them to do. He has no real talent other than the art of deception and the ability to lie and flatter with hypnotic effectiveness.

He presents himself to the public as a peaceful agent of change. He is a surprisingly gifted orator, considering the fact that he has accomplished absolutely nothing of value in his entire life. He appears to offer his strategically hand picked colleagues and associates and wealthy benefactors the pathway to the power and influence and recognition they seek, providing them that synergistic alliance. To those of lesser station, he simply flatters, manipulates with lies, uses, and then discards unrewarded. To those who so much as appear to ask a question that could put him in what he thinks is a bad light, he intimidates, threatens, coerces, or terminates.

Of course, he is a coward, so he never does anything openly distasteful himself. He cleverly avoids directly authorizing actions of ill repute in any way that could be construed by the public as having been initiated by him. He gets his cronies to do his dirty work and take the heat for any unpopular decisions he makes, always careful to leave no obvious path of blame or discriminating evidence that could lead back to him.

Someone else is always set up to take the fall if anything goes wrong or gets exposed or is even rumored to cast him in a questionable light. It’s always someone else’s fault. He has a pathological unwillingness to admit to any mistake, misjudgment, or wrongdoing. He also has a pathological ability to twist the truth and skew the facts and spin the topic to shed light on some other issue and deflect the scrutiny away from him. He is a complete and total fraud to the very core of his soul, willing to do and say anything to get power and to bask in the praise of the world.

He is as stupid as he is brilliant. He does not recognize, and would not care if he could recognize the fact that while he entertains the notion that he chose his associates and colleagues by his own cunning, they in fact have recruited him, hand-picking him as their ride to greater power on a global scale while cleverly masking their intent by casting him in the limelight.

They are all at least two decades older than him, and have been individually and in some cases collectively awaiting their messiah, the one that has been rumored among their secret societies as an organizer who will bring them together in a great cause in which they will be rewarded with seats of power over the whole earth, subduing all nations under their feet.

These secret combinations, modern day Gadianton robbers, pool their minds and resources behind the scenes, unknown to the public, to ensure this golden candidate’s rise to power not only transpires rapidly, but that his rise to power creates around him and them a shield of distraction such that he remains unvetted as his diabolical handlers usher him into high office as a glorious public spectacle. But, even behind that scene of what he sees as interactions within his own personal circle of elites, the highest echelons of those elites are setting him up to be their fall guy.

He is the one rising to power on their dime. He is the one in the limelight. He will be the one to take the heat and the blame if any associated secrets or hidden agendas are uncovered along the way, while their own names and involvements are conveniently suppressed and swept under the carpet by the media, drawing no more than a few superficial and fleeting comments, or remaining entirely unmentioned. Even if they were to be exposed as his financiers and puppeteers, the heat would still be on him, to tear him down, cut his strings.

He is one man. He is the one at the top, as far as the public eye can see. He is the one to whom the world looks. The upper echelons of world elites acting as his groomers and handlers figure, as the old cliché says, the higher he climbs, the harder he falls, and if he falls, the ensuing public chaos will serve as a shield of distraction for them, again masking them from accountability as they back away into their dens and their holes like the filthy rats they are.


He rises as an anti-Christ. He appears always as the heralded agent of change and world peace, but in fact he is evil, deceitful, degrading, depraved, bloodthirsty, vengeful, filled with hate and covetousness, embittered and scornful, taking offense at even the slightest hint of any dissenting opinion. He rules in tyranny the likes of which the world has never seen since man was on the earth. All the while, he plays the good guy, the savior, the beacon of hope, seeming to step in for the benefit of the whole, sacrificing the good of the few for the greater good of society, but never once sacrificing anything of his own.

He gives liberally from the coffers of those from whom he takes, but never a penny from his own pocket. The people blindly follow. The masses blindly believe in him, seeing him as the hope and the salvation of a troubled world, a world which, still unbeknownst to the public, is ransacked by the very chaos he deliberately creates. And whatever chaos he does not create, he exploits. Sound familiar?

He is known by various aliases, including Harrison J. Bounel, Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein Obama, and my personal favorites, the Gadianton golden boy, and Lucifer’s fece.

The Deaf Read Lips and Expose True Colors








At a 9-11 memorial ceremony in 2011, Michelle Obama made a remark to Barack Obama that could not be heard. She never considered the fact that there were cameras with telephoto lenses trained on her face and on Obama's face. Nor did she expect that any deaf people who read lips might be watching the footage. Apparently, Obama himself never gave any thought to it either, since he does not hesitate to nod his agreement with Michelle while his countenance exudes what appears to be utter disgust at the flag and what it represents. True colors always show sooner or later, even in broad daylight in the public eye. The quintessential liar is caught in his lies. And half the nation still wants to reelect this impostor.

One Veteran's Plea to the Country He Loves






head on view of american bald eagle, This fierce looking American Bald Eagle represents the determination of true patriots who love freedom and honor the constitution. Liberals, this eagle is staring you down.

I enjoy an endearing and unique kinship with my country. Allow me to share some personal observations and experiences. In many ways, I feel my life has paralleled the life of my country, though of course on a much smaller scale. This uncanny parallel is one of many reasons why I love America. I see myself in her, and I see her in myself. This to me is a gift from God.

I know the hand of God preserves me day to day, often against the perilous consequences of my own errors and sins. He grants me time to learn, understand, repent, correct myself, and return to him with full purpose of heart.

He has been extending exactly the same mercy toward my country for over two centuries. And just as I am given a finite time to correct myself before the day of reckoning, America must one day be judged by the same God who established her and gave her liberty.

Every fiber of America, that is to say, everyone from her loftiest leaders to her lowliest citizens, individually as persons and collectively as a nation, will at some point render a full accounting of all their works and the intentions of their hearts. That can either be a great and joyful day of redemption or a terrifying and dreadful night of condemnation. Choose now which way you want it to go.

For the sake of clarity, please allow me to define two opposing camps, namely conservatives and liberals. I will define them in the context in which I personally refer to them. I may understand this differently than many of you do, so I express this to clarify where I stand.

Conservatives, in my mind, are those who generally make an honest effort to honor, both openly and privately, deep seated Christian principles, though they may or may not know it by that name. They are morally straight. They value the sanctity of life. They cherish the institution of the traditional family and marriage, meaning a heterosexual, male father and a heterosexual, female mother, legally and lawfully wedded and faithfully devoted to each other and to their children.

Conservatives unabashedly and vigorously love, live, uphold, and defend the principles of individual freedom and liberty embodied in the constitution of the United States of America to the best of their understanding, and they make an ongoing effort to increase their understanding. Conservatives vote prayerfully and carefully. They vote for and sustain candidates and legislations that embody, preserve, and foster individual freedoms, independence, self sufficiency, resourcefulness, ingenuity, entrepreneurship, and personal accountability, or at least those that most closely attempt to promote such ideals.

Often, the choice is limited to the lesser of two evils. In such cases, conservatives opt for the least evil, and then work diligently to turn that evil to good, or replace it with good inasmuch as it is possible. Where such is not possible, conservatives remain steadfast and undaunted in their efforts to create workarounds by which they circumvent the evil and advance the cause of truth in spite of the prevailing evils.

Conservatives recognize the short-term onset and the long-term dangers of a welfare state and an entitlement state. They discern, expose, and actively oppose socialist agendas and the candidates who advocate socialist ideologies, even when such candidates and agendas are cleverly concealed beneath outwardly altruistic rhetoric, convincingly wrapped in charming promises that a troubled constituency wants to hear.

Liberals, in my mind, are the exact opposite, and are either unwitting or willful enemies to any of the principles for which conservatives stand. Those who do nothing because they simply don’t care one way or the other are liberal by default. It was so in the great pre-mortal war, and it is the same today.

The conflict is real, and it is of such a nature that there are no truly neutral or lukewarm positions. Life does have some gray areas, but those gray areas are rapidly polarizing into black and white, starkly delineated face-offs between good and evil. You are either for freedom or you are against it. You either strive for the narrowly defined and clearly marked path of good or you stagger about on the wide, confusing, vaguely defined path to become evil.

Ironically, for all their preaching of tolerance, diversity, equality, opened mindedness, anything goes, live-and-let-live sloganeering, liberals are generally far more easily offended than conservatives, even over such trivial matters as being on the receiving end of political humor or criticism. Liberals tend to react rather than act. They tend to retaliate and detract rather than move forward and rebuild. They tend to demand apologies, even for minor, inconsequential offenses, rather than offer understanding or empathy, rather than grow a sense of humor and laugh it off.

Liberals are quick to take offense when no offense was ever intended. They cry racism and bigotry when they themselves are often exactly what they accuse others of being, but usually in reverse. This phenomenon is often called reverse discrimination. Ironically, liberals who cry for tolerance and diversity are the least tolerant and most closed minded individuals.

Liberals have a conveniently selective view of freedom of speech. That is to say, they are free to say whatever they want to you, but you are not free to express opposition or displeasure toward them. Liberals squawk about their rights to express their views and spread their propaganda and indoctrinate your children as they see fit. However, they will not allow you to speak your mind or correct your children. If you do so anyway, then liberals will take offense and in some cases instigate litigation against you.

I have a political humor bumper sticker on my car that is offensive to liberals. Someone who did not like the sticker spit all over the side of my car while it was parked at a local beach. I have heard of other cases where conservatives have had their property severely vandalized over political humor that liberals could not tolerate.

For the most part, conservatives do not go around vandalizing property over opposing political humor. Most just laugh and carry on with life, confident in their values, and earnestly engaged in their constructive and creative endeavors.

I recently listened to a well meaning fellow express heartfelt encouragement for those suffering from mental illnesses to seek help, both from clergy and from professional specialists. I am paraphrasing echos of prophetic warnings when I tell you that a liberal mindset is a mental illness at best and a spiritual cancer at worst. You have a disease. Seek help.

But, you can't expect us all to think alike, can you? Aren't we all free to think differently? Yes, indeed we are. You are free to adopt a sick mindset that will bring down a nation, just as I am free to adopt a bad diet that will bring down my health.

In my opinion, it is unbecoming of a man of God having access to the fullness of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and Christ's priesthood to knowingly elect a candidate who embodies the socialist ideologies that prophets have expressly warned against. How dare I say such things? I dare. No apologies.

Now, this might seem a bit random to you, but stick with me here for a moment. Let me put things into perspective for you. A bit of toilet humor from a father battling his own frustrations while raising an encopretic, retarded, autistic, Down's syndrome son is harmlessly humorous in the broader picture. Such a father may divert his own anger into a cheerful, youthful, humorous manner of expression that, albeit a bit uncouth in the eyes of others, is far better than becoming embittered and scornful toward his own son who is suffering an unpleasant set of conditions. In this example, which by the way is a real life example, scatological humor serves an uplifting and redeeming purpose. Such humor could even be considered, in this case, to be a spiritual gift uniquely and mercifully bestowed by God upon this particular father for a wise purpose.

Contrast that example against a real life case in which a man of high station in Christ's priesthood knowingly elects an evil candidate to the most powerful office of government on the planet. We are talking about having elected and now possibly reelecting a completely unvetted candidate who is known to shamelessly surround himself with domestic terrorists, communists, anti-Semites, Islamic despots, criminals, liars, mob-like thugs, and a host of acolytes and influential associates of questionable integrity, all of whom demonstrate scant if any allegiance to America.

We are talking about a candidate who apologizes for America and literally as well as figuratively bows to despots and statesmen of foreign lands. A boorish, cheesy, foul-mouthed candidate who gives British Royalty a few cheap DVDs as a diplomatic gesture of good will and spends copious tax dollars on lavish vacations and golf outings during times of national crises. A candidate who refuses to render proper respect to the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem, publicly disrespecting the symbolism represented by the same.

A candidate who pushes socialist ideologies and openly declares that America is no longer a Christian nation. An appeaser of Islamic extremists. A Muslim candidate who
falsely claims to be Christian just so he can get Christian votes in the nation he says is not a Christian nation, which thing he says to win the approval of worldwide non-Christians, particularly his Muslim brothers who tirelessly plot the annihilation of America and Israel. A candidate who spins everything and stands for nothing but whatever bogus angle he thinks is politically expedient for him to promulgate at any given moment. A candidate who effectively declares himself to be the de-facto dictator of the USA and shamelessly desecrates the American Flag.


obama de facto dictator flag desecrates the american flag, Obama's face appears on a sick desecration of the American Flag, indicating he declares himself de facto dictator of the usa. This is worse than defecating on the American Flag.





The decision to elect such a candidate flies in the face of so many prophetic warnings, it is inconceivable. I know not how to reconcile such paradox. Stack this asinine choice and its weighty, protracted consequences next to a trivial bit of scatological humor that is genuinely hilarious, and you glimpse a colossal lapse in judgment at best, and at worst, outright treason or apostasy cloaked in the guise of a smile and a handshake.

Just so I am clear, I harbor no ill will toward the fellow who voted for Obama, but I am ardently and openly opposed to his decision to have ever elected him in the first place. I likewise oppose any intent to reelect him, if such intent exists.

The unspeakably deplorable and myopic decision to elect Obama has decimated the livelihoods of tens of millions if not hundreds of millions of individuals and families. It has opened the floodgates of filthy and false indoctrination in public schools. It has lowered the American standard of living at home and compromised American influence abroad. It has stained our reputation and weakened our stance. It has plunged Americans into the ghetto, shuttered countless family owned business, and ruined the hopes of countless youth and parents alike, perhaps even driving some pregnant mothers into such destitution that a few of them turn to abortion. The decision to elect Obama has saddled our children and our grandchildren with insurmountable debt and financial crises before many of them are even born, and may end up causing many more unborn to be aborted.


Does anyone out there know what the trends in U.S. suicide rates and murder suicide incident rates have been doing since November of 2008? What about abortion rates in the U.S. after 2008? I do not know, but I am curious. I suspect neither has diminished on Obama's watch. Maybe I'm wrong. When I tried searching Google, I could not find any clear statistics on these subjects beyond 2008. A conspicuous lack of data on such incidents post-2008 flies in the face of Obama's so called transparency of government. That could be a cover up worthy of an entire article all by itself.

The decision to elect Obama has hoisted a wall, pushed up a rift, and ripped a chasm between the very peoples that need to come together in the united cause of freedom. The decision to elect Obama is destroying my country. I will not stand idly by and let you do that, no matter who you think you are.

It is said that the pen is mightier than the sword. In the battle between good and evil, I take what is effectively pen and paper, and I write my heart out for the cause of truth, liberty, and the preservation of the divinely inspired Constitution of the United States of America. You are one of the King-men. I am Captain Moroni.



The latter-day prophet Ezra Taft Benson, who was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while also serving as President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Secretary of Agriculture, spoke sternly against the rise of socialism in America. He spoke against the influences of communism. He went so far as to recommend a book titled None Dare Call it Conspiracy, by Gary Allen.

Ezra Taft Benson pulled no punches in expressing disgust toward the godless communist leaders with whom he had spoken face to face, particularly Nikita Khrushchev. Benson called Khrushchev out by name, describing that godless despot as an atheistic murderer.

Ezra Taft Benson is the quintessential American hero. He was passionately devoted to the Constitution of the United States of America. I intend to follow his example. I am not a prophet, but I am a writer, and that is a gift God has given me. He expects me to apply it boldly and fearlessly. I am. I will not be censored or silenced.


If you voted for Obama in 2008, you might use the excuse that you didn't fully comprehend the folly of your choice. Fair enough. But, if you insist on attempting to reelect him in 2012, then you are left without excuse, and you have manifested a mental illness for which you need to seek help. Seriously. Sounds funny, but you would be surprised at how real this is. Modern political liberalism is undiluted insanity and spiritual hypocrisy.

Thanks to the very constitution you are bent on dismantling, and the blood, sweat, and tears shed by countless soldiers who paid the ultimate price to buy for you your unalienable right to be stupid, you are free to feel as you wish and think as you please, but you are accountable for how you think and what you feel and how you vote. And I will vote against your foolish and despotic, liberal ideals.

You have almost half a nation at your disposal as a support group who will be more than happy to welcome you with open arms and encouraging fellowship, if you will but make an effort to convert from your liberal ways and wholeheartedly embrace the cause of liberty. So it was in the days of Captain Moroni, between the years 74 BC and 57 BC upon this very land. And so it is today.

Notice that I did not attempt to define Democrats or Republicans. There is a reason for that. Being conservative or liberal does not necessarily mean you are aligned with any particular political party. Most Democrats tend to be liberal to some degree or another. Some, but I can no longer say most, Republicans tend to be conservative to some degree. Sadly, by cowardly acts of omission, by sitting idly and doing nothing, or by giving in to peer pressure, many Republicans have defaulted to liberalism and are just as bad as most Democrats.

Republicans and Democrats alike are on notice. Republicans who are too afraid to stand up and fight for what they know to be right are every bit as cancerous to American liberty as are the liberal Democrats they pretend to oppose.



In the big picture, the two major political parties of American politics are nothing more than two arms of a corrupt body of secret combinations seeking global domination under a unified world government. It will not be a government by the people and for the people. Such a government will never have the best interest of the people in mind.

World leaders will articulate fancy, convincing words about plans and initiatives for the greater good of all, and for the public welfare and safety, and for equality and environmental responsibility, and a host of other false pretenses. Many people who should know better will give in to the allure and embrace the diabolical cause.

Many well meaning Christians will be lured off course. This has happened before, on the ante-mortal side of that pesky veil of forgetfulness. You can't remember it, but trust me, it happened. And now, history is repeating itself. This will continue to escalate unabated until the grand finale.


A one world government on our telestial Earth will be utter tyranny, a reign of darkness that starts out as a cleverly masked form of socialism. It will be a welfare state on a global scale. It will be a global society of entitlement and idolatry. There will be no more sovereignty. It is modern-day Babylon, and it will fall. It is global Sodom and Gomorrah, and it will burn.

Jumping to one of many issues at hand, as much as we want to impeach Obama, we cannot. Legally, he is not the president. He never was. He is not an American citizen. He is not a legal resident of the United States. As an illegal alien who has no honest allegiance to the United States, he cannot even be tried for treason.

We can talk ourselves blue in the face about the plethora of legal means we could apply to oust Obama. Prosecute him for voter fraud, entry into the United States under false pretenses, organized crime, economic terrorism, conspiracy to commit murder, accessory to murder, possession and use of narcotics, blackmail, aiding and abetting the enemy, conspiracy to commit infanticide, perjury, contempt of court, and a litany of other crimes too numerous list here. But, who is able and willing to effectively pursue such cases against him? Even states do not seem to make any headway in law suits against this quintessential 21st century villain.

Obama has cleverly inserted himself into a position of power in a manner that prevents his removal by any means other than force. And that will never happen, because the forces that could remove him will not dare do so, for fear of being charged with inciting a coup and committing treason themselves. Obama has surrounded himself with trons who do his bidding. Some align with him willingly. Others do so under duress, perhaps because he sends his thugs to threaten their livelihoods or their very lives, or the lives of their families. Ask the Clintons about that. They are the original birthers.





Our only plausible recourse is to repent and prayerfully attempt to vote Obama out of office in the November 2012 presidential elections. That is if we still have presidential elections at that point. It will be nothing short of a miracle from God if Mitt Romney is elected. I believe in miracles. Perhaps the nation should turn to God in prayer before it's too late, before we are ripe for the utter destruction that awaits us if we don't.

We have to ask ourselves, if we have been blessed with the freedom to vote, then are we accountable for how we vote? Can we honestly admit, even to ourselves, why we vote the way we do, if we even care enough to vote at all?

In 2008, did you vote for the black guy just because he is black and it would be a novel idea to have our first black president?

Did you think electing Obama would actually advance the dream Martin Luther King envisioned? Or did you vote for him because you were afraid of being labeled a racist if you didn't? Or did you actually believe his lies. Did you think he was going to unite the country and put money in your pockets, pay your car payments, make your mortgage payments for you, take care of you, and give you free health care? Shame on you if you still harbor such delusions. You are part of the problem, not the solution.

Would it surprise anyone if news were to break that Obama wants to create a scenario wherein he can declare martial law or a national emergency that will require an extension of executive powers exceeding the normal duration of a presidential term, suspending presidential elections until further notice, all in the interest of continuity of government and national security until the crisis is resolved? If such were ever the case, whatever crisis he instigates will be protracted and unresolved for however long he remains in power. That's the hope and change you can count on if you let him stay in office beyond 2012.

At the very least, Obama will have placed the final stones in the foundation upon which such a scenario could play out after his regime has ended. Like infections so easily overcome an HIV host or an AIDS victim, corrupt successors will further the dissolution of American sovereignty all the more easily because of the weakened condition in which Obama and his minions will have left it. I believe Mitt Romney is the only remaining 2012 presidential candidate who has a reasonable shot at being elected and who will not jeopardize America or the Constitution.


You thought the 2008 presidential election was the most significant turning point in American political history. It pales in comparison to what's at stake in 2012.

Romney vs. Lucifer’s fece! The choice is as clear as day and night. But, America is more or less evenly split between those with some desire to preserve the constitution and those hoping for an entitlement state at the expense of liberty.

Obama is not the only problem. Congress is part of the problem. Voters are part of the problem. After all, voters put these guys in office and let them get away with anything.

This is history repeating itself. Ancient and modern prophets have warned of exactly the scenarios we face today.

Please indulge me as I unfold another personal illustration. Let's call it the marriage allegory.

When I was young and had just returned from two years of missionary service in Argentina, I prayed fervently to God to send me a girl to marry. I did not give any thought to what kind of girl or what character of girl I should seek. I was not actively putting forth much effort to seek out and meet a girl. Instead, I was waiting and crying out for God to simply plop a girl in my path. I just wanted to get married, because marriage was the right thing for a young, Christian man to do. And I was lonely.

God answered my prayer, and six years later I divorced the girl. The relationship was utterly unsustainable. Spiritual deficits exceeded financial deficits. I could never have discovered or begun to fulfill my life’s purpose if I were to have continued with that girl. In that particular case, it was fortunate that we had no children. God must have seen to that for a wise purpose.

But, I got what I prayed for. I had pleaded to God for a quick solution to my immediate loneliness, giving no thought to the details that would effect the far reaching consequences of my petition. In the heat of a short-term adversity, I had failed to ponder the protracted outcome of my desires.

I left out important elements I could have and should have specified in my petition to God. How could I expect him to just fill in the blanks for me, when I had taken no responsibility to do so for myself? He had blessed me with a sound mind and the freedom to search and reason and choose for myself.

When I failed to take personal responsibility in the process, I was in essence expecting a handout or an entitlement from God, having done nothing for myself. I got the handout. I got the entitlement. And it almost destroyed me.

As a side note, how many lottery winners and state welfare recipients do you know who are genuinely happy and confident and free of vices, and who take initiative to govern their own lives? Didn’t think so.

I had to repent and correct myself and make a better choice. Having been given the chance to elect anew, I did so with great care and initiative, becoming a living example of what it means to be proactive, exercising Herculean efforts in mind and body and spirit, discerning and attending to every detail of the process. I worked and fasted and prayed more diligently and meticulously than I ever had in my life. I was determined to get it right. I am eternally blessed for having done so.

So, if you prayed about who to vote for in 2008, and you feel God prompted you to vote for Obama, even if you did not wholeheartedly approve of Obama but supposed him to be the lesser of the evils, then you still made the wrong choice. You fell into the same trap I did when I chose my first wife. In the heat of your adversity and displeasure, which likely included some disillusionment with President George W. Bush, you failed to ponder the protracted outcome of your petition.

You prayed for change, and along came a seemingly charismatic, younger candidate with a fresh, new face and a novel opportunity to become a historical first, and he seemed to be a gifted orator, at least when delivering prepared speeches from a teleprompter, spouting hope and change. You took it as an answer from God. You got what you prayed for. You got change, alright. However, you failed to consider what type of change you were asking for. I might be way off, here, but I'll go out on a limb and take a guess that I hit the nail on the head.


Like country like citizen. In my marriage experiences, I got and deserved what I elected. Both times. I elected liberal the first time around, and look what it got me. I wised up and elected conservative the second time around, and I am eternally grateful for the results. Okay. Stop right there. You are missing the point.

I am not talking about my first wife being politically liberal and my second wife being politically conservative, although, interestingly, that was the case. But, that is not at all my point.

Understand the more profound symbolism in this allegory. The way I handled my desperation to get married the first time around was representative of a liberal mindset. The way I conducted my quest for my second wife was representative of a conservative mindset. Re-read the allegory above. Re-read it, and this time bear in mind that I married my first wife after only three months of casual, convenient, local dating.


In the case of my second wife, I searched intensely for eight months just to identify a primary candidate. No, I do not refer to girls as candidates, but since this is a political allegory, just roll with it.

Once I had selected a primary candidate, I focused all my attention and affections exclusively on her and persisted in a fervent and thoughtful and detailed, long-distance, three-year courtship that included daily letter writing, actual pen and paper letters with stamps and envelopes, not emails and text messages. Neither of us had a computer or a cell phone.

I moonlighted at a second job, changing oil on automobiles, so I could buy her a diamond ring without incurring debt, and so I could literally purchase the ring for her by the labor of my own hands and by the sweat of my own brow. That was important to me, and she is worth every effort. I am a literal descendant of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham. Read the Bible story of
Jacob and Rachel and you will understand why this romantic ethic runs deep in my blood.


I traveled three times overseas, to the opposite side of the planet, to visit this precious girl in her Mama's house, and to arrange her immigration documents with the appropriate government offices in her country. I also prepared and submitted and followed up on the necessary immigration documents for her at the appropriate offices here, in America.

On my third annual visit to her country, I brought her home with me to America and we were married and sealed together for time and for all eternity in the Seattle Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She immigrated legally. A multitude of miracles came to pass with precision timing to enable these things to happen. All of this was accomplished while I was serving full time active duty in the military. She is now a United States citizen.


We have been married for twelve years and have one son, and in spite of mortal life's difficulties, we are happy. The faith and time and effort invested to do it right were and are worth more than words can express. That is the conservative mindset I am trying to impart to you through my marriage allegory.

America, my country who has loved me, know that I have been and continue to be schooled by you. Now, please take a lesson from me, one of your veteran sons who loves you.

The bigger the circle, the stronger the quake. Hover your mouse cursor over a circle to see the magnitude, time, and location of the quake. Note the color code key at the top left of the map. The color of the circle indicates how long ago the quake occurred. Distinct colors represent earthquakes that happened today, yesterday, within the past two weeks, and within the past five years.




Aceh Indonesia Hit by 8.6 Magnitude Earthquake Triggering Tsunami Alert April 11, 2012







View Larger Map

Aceh, Indonesia recently experienced an 8.6 magnitude quake that triggered an Indian Ocean tsunami warning. In Jakarta, BBC correspondent Karishma Vaswani said there were reports of the ground shaking for up to five minutes. A quake lasting that long is unusual. Most earthquakes only last a few seconds, seldom more than 30 seconds to a minute. A couple of hours after the initial quake, residents felt an aftershock measuring 8.2 on the Richter scale. The aftershock set off another tsunami warning.

This is nothing to take lightly. We may tend to feel complacent because this happened over there. However, we should consider it a warning, and understand that similar events can, and will, just as easily happen right here.

Ask yourself this: How many times have you heard of earthquakes and tsunamis occurring in bad weather? How many times have you experienced or heard reports of severe storms such as hurricanes or typhoons being accompanied by earthquakes or volcanoes? I cannot recall any such disasters happening simultaneously in the same region. We may not be so fortunate in the near future.

We, the inhabitants of Earth, have for the most part been blessed to have had our catastrophes served to us one at a time. Generally speaking, we have also been granted some amount of time for recovery between successive disasters in any given geographical region of the planet. We have yet to face overlapping geological and meteorological calamities or simultaneous geological and climatological catastrophes affecting a given geographical area. And we have not even begun to factor in the possibilities of astrophysical events affecting Earth.

We cannot say we have not been warned of these things. The effects of such upheavals are further exacerbated by the increasing global financial crisis and the looming threats of famine and violent outbreaks of lawlessness among otherwise civil populations.

I am here to tell you in no uncertain terms that gone are the days when your national level governments had your best interests at heart. For some time now, the governments of the world have been influenced by, if not wholeheartedly allied with, secret combinations driven by Luciferian elitists and despots.

A Gadianton Robber in our White House

Even Conspiracy Enthusiasts Celebrate Easter






You cover your nose to quell the stench of stale urine and feces, rotting trash, and decomposing human corpses picked to the bone, and not by animals. You plod wearily around putrid piles of debris, forgotten vehicles, and rusty shopping carts as you transit the remnants of what was once a booming economic center.

A gentle breeze blows tattered, grimy pieces of paper past your feet. A torn, stained Wal-Mart shopping bag drifts along the fractured sidewalk until it snags on some weeds growing out of the cracks in the concrete. Abandoned businesses line both sides of the unkempt thoroughfare, relics of a bygone prosperous era.


A soiled, crumpled copy of a book titled The Post-American World lies in the gutter, its soggy font cover flapping open to expose the faint, smudged lines of an autograph. Barack Hussein Obama. Ironically not the book’s author, but certainly one of the principle authors of its fruition.

What good was free health care when daily supplies became so scarce and prices skyrocketed so high you couldn’t buy groceries without a doctor’s prescription for food? Good luck finding a store left in business that would fill your grocery prescription at all. Stores got sick of waiting weeks for reimbursement through the overburdened insurance system.

Your government-run healthcare insurance was supposed to pay most of your prescription grocery bill, but you could no longer afford the co-pay on even a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread. We haven’t even mentioned gasoline prices and bicycle prices.

People packed into doctors’ offices for chronic starvation. Most of them starved in the waiting room or in the line that wrapped around the block, waiting to get into the waiting room. Doctors and nurses dropped dead of exhaustion. How could this happen in America, the land of plenty, the land of opportunity?

This was not brought about by external enemies. This was the quintessential inside job. The golden boy who promised hope and change had been groomed from his Kenyan roots to be a chief instrument in this diabolical plot. He brought sweeping change with a besom of deceit and made people hope they could afford to feed their kids for a few more days before everyone starved to death. People wondered whether it would be better to starve before the kids did, or let the kids starve before the adults did.

The popular majority got what they voted for. There was never a recovery after the end of 2008. Four years later, 2012, people wanted a savior even more than they did in 2008. They might as well have reelected Satan.

Long before any of us were born, one third of the human family assigned to this earth voted for Satan. In November of 2008, fifty-one percent of American voters made the same asinine move. Disgruntled by the results of their choice, they committed economic suicide in November of 2012, once again defecating where they eat. Insane! Two terms. People really are that stupid.


The damage is irreparable, just as it was intended to be. The aftermath leaves you with a barter system and nothing to barter but your butt in a remnant of society riddled with flaming fags. Thankfully, you retain the moral fortitude to stand against the rampant nature of such unspeakable perversions. That puts you among a scarce few who choose to keep any semblance of a moral compass.

There is no more ammunition for your illegal firearm. You are too weak to use a knife or a bow and arrow. Hide and scrounge or be sodomized in the street and eaten alive be anyone stronger than you who still has teeth in their gums.

Several vagrants mutter unintelligibly from the shadows between broken walls of buildings. Glass shards lie strewn about the sidewalks and pavement, persistent reminders of the earthquakes and lootings of yesteryear. Earthquakes still occur between storms and during storms. Lootings ended when there was nothing left to loot. Today is unusually calm, though the sky hangs heavy, laden with thick, palpable, gritty, grayish brown smog, a mix of both natural and man-made pollutants and fallout.

You can’t recall the last time you saw a stray dog or cat, or for that matter even a rat. You have forgotten how good they taste. It’s been that long. Weeds and roaches are still on the menu, at least for a while. You hope.

Keeping anything down between explosive, ensanguined bouts of diarrhea and fits of stomach hemorrhaging and projectile vomiting poses a bit of a challenge, but somehow, by the grace of God, you are still alive. You mull over whether you should be grateful for life or wish for death. The latter is tempting, but you have a shred of conscience and will to live left in you. Just a shred.

You hear rapid footsteps coming down an intersecting street ahead of you. Puzzled and alarmed, you stop dead in your tracks, petrified with fear. You can’t load your britches because you haven’t eaten for days, but you nearly piss what’s left of your pants when a healthy, muscular, well dressed young fellow rounds the corner and approaches you, smiling from ear to ear. As he draws near, he calls out your full name in the clearest, most distinctive, masculine voice you have ever heard. He greets you with the firmest, friendliest, sincerest handshake you have ever known.

Though you are taken aback, something deep inside your soul leaps in joyous recognition, belying your bewilderment. Who is this guy? Where did he come from? He looks like a million bucks, and he’s genuinely happy. You haven’t seen such joy emanate from a human countenance since, well, ever. You sense that his cheerful demeanor is only the tip of the iceberg, revealing but a wee glimpse of the profound joy that permeates every fiber of his being.

Though you take him for a complete stranger and a bit of a lunatic, he obviously knows exactly who you are, and he is not the least bit offended by your cautious astonishment. He hugs you and slaps your back cheerily as he introduces himself as your grandfather.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! Your grandfather? Right. He’s only been dead for decades. You went to his funeral when you were a young teenager. He was crippled and frail and 97 years old when he finally croaked. This strapping young fellow standing in front of you is barely in his twenties, strong and handsome, perfectly groomed and clean shaven, and undeniably straight. He exudes a sound mind, steady resolve, perfect confidence, and a robust sense of moral uprightness. He’s no ghost. He’s solid, sturdy, and very much alive.

His war wounds from the 1940s are gone. Nary a scar. And he has hair. Thick, healthy, well trimmed hair. He might as well have been a famous actor as a wounded, tired, old soldier who withered away and died of cancer and diabetes.

A few minutes later, you glimpse a pretty, young girl in the cutest summer dress walking calmly toward you and this fellow who claims to be your grandpa. This adorable girl can’t be a day over seventeen years old, picture perfect, tidy, modest and well mannered. She is the epitome of purity and grace.

Exuding a seemingly paradoxical combination of childlike innocence and the wisdom of eternity, she is not the least bit afraid or put off by the perilous, sinister, squalid environment that surrounds you. Nor does the fellow seem to feel there is anything capable of harming her, any threat from which he would need to protect her. This evidenced by the fact that he left her a hundred yards behind when he came running to greet you.

You can't help but stare. You catch your breath. Just before you give in to the temptation to develop a full blown crush on the girl, the fellow standing next to you with his arm around your shoulder lights up with a whole new level of youthful exuberance. He smacks the back of your head in good-natured horse play and says, “Grandson, meet the love of my life, my dear, eternal wife, your grandma!”

She curtsies and greets you with the sweetest smile and the most feminine, angelic voice ever to grace your ears. Her radiant beauty tugs tears out of your eyes and evokes tender emotions you never knew the human heart could feel.

Your jaw drops. Hotel...Foxtrot...Sierra! You dare not say that out loud in her presence. Her very being makes you want to clean up your language and be a better man.

Still baffled speechless, your gut tells you these two strangers are not strangers, but are indeed who they claim to be. One nutty, over exuberant guy alone may not entirely convince you, but with this girl as a second witness, you know to the core of your soul what is true, though your mind still has trouble processing the reality of it.

Welcome to your first encounter with resurrected beings. Mark my words; you will be seeing a lot of them in a few decades, so wrap your mind around it now.

On our earth, there have already been millions of people resurrected over the past twenty centuries. But, never once before Earth year AD 34 did such an encounter occur on any planet created by our Celestial Father, Earth included.

A lot of people have been waiting an unimaginably long time to be resurrected. The few centuries our forefathers have to wait seems long to them, but it’s a drop in the bucket compared to how long the inhabitants of many other worlds have been waiting.

Likely, most if not all such people would have been translated or partially quickened similar to the effect bestowed upon John the Beloved and the Three Nephites. Any time after the resurrection of Jesus Christ, such people may be further quickened instantaneously to their resurrected state.

In the case of John the Beloved and the Three Nephites, we know they will tarry in their physical bodies until the return of Christ to our Earth, whereupon their physical bodies will be instantaneously resurrected without ever having to enter the grave.

Understand this. A resurrected body is a physical, tangible body of flesh and bone. It is made immortal and whole, completely healed of all ailments and infirmities.

Easter is the celebration of one of the two greatest events ever to transpire in the history of the entire human family begotten by God, who is our Celestial Father. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the event being celebrated.

The other momentous event, the birth of Jesus Christ, is of course celebrated as Christmas, every 25th of December. A third grand event, the greatest of all, is the return of Jesus Christ to our Earth in the fullness of his glory. This event is yet to come, but is not far off.

What makes the resurrection of Jesus Christ the most significant event to date? Why could his resurrection be considered more significant than his birth? Jesus Christ is the only member of the entire human family on this earth and every other earth he has created and his Father has populated who was endowed with complete power over life and death, including his own and everyone else’s. While Christ’s birth was obviously significant and prerequisite to his resurrection, his birth did not complete his infinite atonement. His resurrection did.

What is resurrection? There are a lot of misconceptions about this word, even among Christians. Many non-Christians have never even heard the word resurrection, let alone understand what it means. Many confuse resurrection with the false concept of reincarnation.

Reincarnation is one of the biggest lies out there. Many brilliant intellectuals and highly educated scholars and philosophers fall prey to this lie and go so far as to vigorously defend and perpetuate the lie. Doing so makes their station in society a paradox. How can such utter stupidity and unabashed, willful ignorance reign in the highest circles of education? Peer pressure knows no age limit.

Resurrection is the permanent and eternal reuniting of a spirit with its own body. In the process, the body is made immortal and whole. There is no such thing as a maimed resurrected body. The only exception being that Jesus Christ kept the prints of the nails in his hands and feet, and the print of the spear in his side as a tangible testament of his crucifixion.

These prints serve as a means whereby any who meet him can recognize him. The prints of his crucifixion are irrefutable evidence of his divine identity as the Savior, the Messiah, the Redeemer, the Only Begotten Son of the Father in the flesh. When coupled with the undeniable witness of the Holy Ghost that enables you to understand that Jesus Christ is exactly who he says he is, the prints of his wounds further prove beyond any doubt whatsoever that Jesus Christ completed his divine mission to atone for all of his Father’s children, wherever they may be, if they will but accept him.

Only the most jaded, defiant, obdurate individuals would be foolish enough to actually think him an imposter or a failure or incompetent or nonexistent after having had every opportunity presented them to know him. Sadly, many fit such a description, and they do so of their own volition. These resist truth and persist against the whisperings of their deepest conscience. They are embarrassed and even offended by that which is most correct and sensible. They are quick to take offense where no offense is intended.

When Jesus Christ resurrected himself after his body was in the tomb and his spirit was in the spirit world for three and a half days, he became the first of our Heavenly Father’s creations to ever experience resurrection. Christ’s power to effect his own resurrection includes the power to effect the resurrection of every spirit created by our Heavenly Father who has ever been born and who will ever be born into a mortal body. That includes all forms of life, all species. But, we are talking most particularly about human beings, the literal offspring of our Heavenly Father.

We humans, regardless of the countless worlds we inhabit, are unique among all of God’s creations. We are created in his image, male and female. We have the potential to become his equals, gods and goddesses. None of his other creations share this identity and this infinite potential.

Christ’s power of resurrection is not extended to those who have forfeited their right to be born. In other words, birth is prerequisite to resurrection. That much is obvious to anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of the concept. Not so obvious is the fact that resurrection is inevitable and inescapable for all who are born.

Those of whom Christ spoke, saying it would have been better for them if they had never been born, will wish the inevitability of resurrection were not so. They will have willfully and knowingly indulged their life in murderous sin and will have denied Christ and the Holy Ghost who testifies of him. They will have deliberately and persistently and impenitently harmed Christ’s little ones. That is another topic for another article.

The point here is that you do not get to go through your life unrepentant of your sins, refusing to correct and control your thoughts, your feelings, your attitudes, and your behaviors, and then expect a pleasant resurrection. Hence the saying, you reap what you sow.

When you fought for your right to be born, you won the fight through your faith in Jesus Christ, even before Christ himself was born. That took guts.

Those who lost that fight lost their first estate. They cannot ever be born, and thus will never be resurrected. Resurrection naturally requires both a spirit and a body created specifically for that spirit. No birth, no body. No body, no resurrection. It’s that simple.

The fight is far from over. Since the moment of your birth, you entered the battlefield of the continuation of the great pre-mortal war. On this battlefield, you have not won. Not yet, anyway. Regardless of whether or not you win or lose on the battlefield of mortality, you will be resurrected. That’s a freebie from Jesus Christ. You don’t even have to believe in him or like him or follow him. You get resurrected whether you want to or not. Suicide does not exempt you from resurrection. You don’t get out of it.

There is something else you need to understand. You have just as much liberty of spirit and freedom of choice now as you did before you were born. And now, just as then, you can choose to keep yourself free or you can give up your liberty and surrender yourself captive to the enemy of all humanity.

If you lose on the battlefield of mortal life, you will not only fear your death, but you may dread your impending resurrection. If you win on the battlefield of life, your death will be nothing to fear, and you will eagerly await your resurrection.

I’m not talking about
winning and losing the way the world thinks of it. This has nothing to do with career advancement, political agendas, competitions, sports, lotteries, or contests of wit and speed and physical strength. This is not about financial success or business ventures or fame and fortune or other such endeavors.

This is about the depths of your mind and heart and soul. It’s about what you feel and think and believe and esteem and dismiss. It’s about how you view and treat others, what you value, what you honor, what you cherish, what you are willing to sacrifice to defend what you know is right and true.

It’s about what and who you forgive or refuse to forgive. It’s about grudges you bear or let go. It’s not so much about trying to avoid offending others. Truth almost always offends error, but truth need not be offended by error. So, more importantly, it’s about you learning to not take offense at what others may or may not think or say or do, or represent. It’s about healing and being healed. It’s about overcoming evil with good.

How do you know if you are winning or losing on this battlefield? I can’t answer that for you. You have to work that out between you and Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. You might start by simply asking God, in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, where you stand.

Ask him, and then, observe any feelings that come to your heart. Listen and watch for any thoughts, impressions, ideas, or images that come to your mind. Pay attention to the things that begin to happen in your life. Look up. Develop an open mind and a willing spirit. When I say open mind, I mean a mind open to truth not yet familiar to you. Not a mind opened to more deceptions and lies and lascivious or decadent impulses.

Be persistent. Try again. Search some more and try again. If you’ve kept reading this far into this article, then you must have some interest in the welfare of your own soul. So, take courage.

Even some of us conspiracy nuts celebrate Easter.
