The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Of Flags & Crosses

You and I, we stand on sacred soil for sacred things…remember?

“The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. And what once was is lost, for none that now live remember it.”          ~ J. R. R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

For anyone still wondering what has gone wrong in the world and why it has, look no further than the image of U.S. Olympian snowboarder Shaun White dragging the American Flag on the ground behind him at the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang last week. I saw that and then I read this article from the CEO of the Catholic Charities of Orange and Sullivan praising government and calling on us to be catalysts in solving the growing opiate addiction crisis… 500 plus words, and God, faith, and prayer were not among them. Are we dragging the Cross on the ground behind us as well, or have we left it behind us altogether?

Think about our world in the context of five events this past week. In the order of coverage and attention, we had the Florida school shooting, the Mueller indictments, the alleged Netanyahu scandal, the Winter Olympics, and the Catholic Pope bowing (surrendering?) to the Chinese. Are these events connected/related? (Is/was the Pope Catholic?) Yes, in two words: George Soros.          

The Hungarian-born Jew who confesses to Steve Kroft at the 7-min-mark here, to dispossessing his fellow Jews as Hitler’s errand boy, has been dispossessing as an errand boy for a much greater evil ever since. People, you see, can be dispossessed of many things. But if you wish to make them slaves, as Soros knows better than any man alive, you need only dispossess them of their two most vital possessions; their patriotism and their religion. So how patriotic is the man who, representing his entire county, drags the sacred symbol of his country on the ground behind him? And how religious is the man who, representing his entire Church, surrenders to the greatest Atheistic power on the entire planet? ~ With nary a soundbite, video clip, or printed word from the so-called journalists of the MSM…hmmm? “for none that now live remember it” eh Shaun. Again, as Soros knows so well, men dispossessed of both tend to behave accordingly.

Nobody is watching these Olympics. Is it possible that most of us are finally realizing, as with the NFL, it is all the “Bread & Circus” of the Globalist/Deep State? The same Soros-fed, UN-backed ORCS that want to take out Netanyahu, and push us into war with Russia?

Circling back to the most important event of the week reminds me that I nearly forgot the third most important possession the dispossessor must dispossess…the gun. Have you ever stopped to think, as easy as it is to learn how to build an explosive device, why there are so many, many more mass shootings than mass bombings? Especially when you realize that its far easier for a bomber to escape detection and capture than a shooter? If you’ve followed the Parkland case on the internet (forget MSM), you know that Nikolas Cruz was screaming to the FBI for months, “I AM GOING TO KILL!” “I am going to be a professional school shooter” were his exact words. As a critical thinking American observing facts on the ground in the wake of Lavoy Finicum’s murder, the attempted assassination of Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders in Garland Texas, Hillary Clinton’s email exoneration, the Las Vegas massacre, the Trump/Russian Witch-hunt, the FISA Memo revelations, and now Parkland; I ask myself who has and has had greater influence on the FBI…President Trump or George Soros? Trump wants to make America great again. Soros wanted the soundbite of Lori Alhadeff, whose 14-year-old daughter was gunned down in Parkland, screaming in grief-stricken rage, begging, pleading for President Trump to do something about “the guns”.

I had another grief-stricken parent call me yesterday. His 29-year-old opiate-addicted son will be going straight from detox to jail on Tuesday. This is what the dispossessed do. They slowly kill themselves or they kill others…and often both. This is what Soros wanted in Europe; a totally dispossessed populace incapable of defending itself…and it is exactly what he wants here, and nearly had in his grasp. What he refers to as “populism”, we know as freedom. When Soros sees one 29-year-old addict dragging his life behind, and the 31-year-old Olympian dragging his flag behind him, while the ISIS Flag is raised at a high school in Utah, he knows he’s closing in for the kill.

Nobody knew and understood the perpetual state of man better than Tolkien. His work was brilliant metaphor for the real Fellowship of the Cross. While the majority of our friends and family toil and labor for their retirement plans, and scheme for their inheritances, there have been through every dark age, a precious few who answer the greater call. The hymn Onward Christian Soldier that confused me as a child, is crystal clear to me now. “Act, and God will Act.” ~ Joan of Arc

You and I, we stand on sacred soil for sacred things…remember?

“The world was entrusted to man, but the deceiver took it away and now rules instead. A man must war to win it back again. A foul master has made men into slaves. A free man must fight him to set them free. And so, as foretold, the Seed of woman—a genuine being like ourselves—must do battle with the Snake.” ~ Gregory Koukl, The Story of Reality

    What a clear picture of everything going on from micro to macro. Life is a puzzle and for me enough pieces have been put in place to see the full picture. Priests and ministers but, no mention of Jesus. Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, leading up to the Olympics said, Donald Trump was not her President. The cuddle up to North Korea. The American athletes who said they would not shake vice-president Pence’s hand. How can I watch these athletes who don’t represent me?
