Identity And Social Justice
Identity And Social Justice Posted on May 27, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, in the West, as “social justice” took the place of justice, “identity” has taken the place of individualism. In both cases a good was perverted to an evil. Justice, or equal treatment became social justice, and now means unequal treatment… the opposite of justice. While identity, focusing on social recognition, has taken the place of individualism, the ability to stand outside the social norm. Again,...
Drunk sex and consent
The whole business is a mess. For years now, our media and sexual consent courses have been getting the law totally wrong about intoxication and consent - with the result that growing numbers of mostly young men are finding themselves wrongfully accused of rape. Two highly significant NSW cases have called out their wrong thinking, drawing on expert forensic toxicology evidence to explain why you can give consent while intoxicated. Just because you can’t remember what happened doesn’t mean...
The Pervasiveness of Health Trackers
Over the past year or so, I’ve been facing a considerable degree of health-related anxiety. This is new for me, as I've always dismissed minor aches, occasional stomach upsets, or period cramps. Recently, however, I've been struggling with recurring feelings that a different part of my body is unwell every few weeks, even though I know it's in my head since I have little to no actual symptoms. I am very diligent about my health, getting comprehensive checkups every six months, and I have a...
The Scope of Selflessness
The sun beats down with a relentless fury on North India these days. Summer has reached its peak, the mercury climbing well beyond 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit). Heatwave alerts have been issued and the parks are empty even during the ongoing summer break in schools. Fires spring up unexpectedly in vehicles, air conditioning units, and electrical panels, each day bringing a new tale of destruction. Just the other day, one such incident occurred not far from where I live. It was...
Violence Against Ecosystems: Paving Nature...
In yet another story in this Non-Violence publication documenting the insane movement by leftwing so-called “environmentalists” to make the surface of our planet less natural and more technological (cyborgifying it), a solar power company is planning to chop down Joshua Tree cacti in California’s Mojave Desert in order to combat “climate change”. Joshua Tree cacti in California’s Mojave Desert Although not so rare as to be considered “endangered”, Joshua Trees are considered a “threatened”...
The Flower And The Fruit
The Flower And The Fruit Posted on June 2, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, a flower is beautiful but if you trap it in the flower state, you will have foiled its purpose. A flower attracts bees, who pollinate it, and gives way to fruit. Without the flower there is no fruit. Without fruit there is no future. Rather than abort the fruit to maintain the flower, why not increase the number of flowers? If one so loves flowers? The foundational philosophies of post modernism...
Bureaucratic punishment
Michael is a typical Aussie kid who grew up in Sydney’s beaches. Confident and cheerful, he was vice president of his school, a popular and good-looking boy who’d spent his whole childhood in the surf. By 18 he was a qualified beach lifeguard. That’s all he’d ever wanted to be. But then, in August 2021, came the accusation. Sexual intercourse without consent. He says that the girl had boasted to friends beforehand that she planned to have sex with him at the party. That she was the one who...
Revisionist History of a Galaxy Far, Far Away
There's a strange thing going in on the world of pop culture and it's been going on for quite a while now. You may have heard of a new Star Wars series on Disney Plus called the Acolyte. The show is created, written and produced by Leslye Headland and sort rewrites a lot of Star Wars canon. Leslye Headland seemingly wishes to reimagine the Star Wars universe through a feminine lens. It's a real boon for feminists, brought to you by a woman best known for being the assistant to Harvey...
Screw Goals! You Need An Ideal.
When I used to set goals for myself, I was rarely happy. I'd work my ass off to reach one goal, barely stop to acknowledge I'd reached it, and then move on to the next. I never understood how to savor a moment. No matter what I might have achieved, it would never have been enough. I was setting myself up for failure, and while it is true that failure teaches us valuable lessons, it can also become oppressive to the point of suffocation. It becomes a strangling fist, collapsing your windpipe...
Food for Thought: Are We Being Set Up to Fail?
Let's face it, our environment has set us up to fail. Most options around us are low-hanging fruits that lead us towards poorer health. Junk food, mystery ingredients, artificial light, toxic media, and so much more, are as convenient as possible. Some say "oh that's just greed" and the thinking on this topic stops there. But I often wonder if it's more than that. Could it be about keeping people sick and weak? It's certainly possible. Historically, there have been instances of the...
Values, Urban And Rural
Values, Urban And Rural Posted on June 17, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, a thing urban people don’t understand, is the relationship rural people have with guns. How could they? Having a completely different background. Rural people grow up with guns, chain saws and tractors. They’re simply part of rural life. Urban people, on the other hand, have no experience with a chain saw and so are afraid of them. Tractors are fire spewing monstrous beasts to someone who’s only seen one...
Regulating Prosperity Away
Regulating Prosperity Away Posted on June 14, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, almost everyone undervalues the destruction that regulation causes to the economy. Think of an economy like an onion. Each layer representing an industry. The most profitable ones at the core and the least profitable ones on the outside. Marginal businesses make up the skin. Regulation then sloughs off a layer at a time until only the core is left. As we all know, the core of an onion doesn’t last...
The Group vs The Individual
It seems peculiar to me that there is a frequent push for celebrating group identities. My suspicion arises from studying group psychology versus individual psychology. Groups are much easier to control, and there's substantial evidence to support this in the context of physical crowds. My interest in this topic began with works like "The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind" by Gustave Le Bon. However, in today's digital age, crowds can be virtual, existing without physical proximity. While...
Oligarchy By Another Name
Oligarchy By Another Name Posted on June 23, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, the administrative state is a euphemism, for aristocracy. As elite is for aristocrat. People have been programmed to think aristocracy is bad, so the name had to be changed. Why? Because the elite want an “aristocracy” and therefore it needed a makeover. The elite’s manipulation of language to suit their needs has a long and storied past. At least back to Thrasymachus, in Plato’s Republic, who blurted...
The PetroDollar R.I.P.
President Nixon and King Faisal reach agreement leading to the PetroDollar (1974). ** With great sorrow, we announce the death of our dear friend and colleague, the PetroDollar. Petro passed from this financial plane on June 9th,2024, at just 51 years of age. Petro will be sorely missed. Signed, Wall Street, USA ** Although tongue-in-cheek, this reflects the feelings of many on Wall Street, who have already figured out what the loss of the PetroDollar will mean to America’s finances. The...
On Grief, Regret and Resolution
My friends find themselves at that stage in life where death lurks around the edges, occasionally reaching out to snatch away a parent or grandparent. In those moments of loss, words of comfort seem feeble, almost pointless. You'd think that having lost six kin in the past ten years would grant me some mastery over grief, some ability to soothe it. But grief is a stubborn beast. It doesn't get easier with practice. Yet, through these dark times, a particular realisation has dawned on me. One...
Reykdal defies the Parents Rights Law
Parents have a right to know! In a recent interview with Tucker Carlson, author Vincent Everett Ellison described the long history of the Marxist-Democrat war on the American family. There has been a methodical effort to destroy the traditional American family using attacks on masculinity and fatherhood. Strategies of attack include no-fault divorce, the substitution of government programs for husbands, easy access to abortion, the degradation of the education system, the removal...
Solving Societal Problems
Solving Societal Problems Posted on May 29, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, if it’s true that, “You can’t solve a problem with the same mindset that created the problem…” as Einstein said. Then all the problems we have, that were created by government, cannot be solved by government, and to try will only exacerbate them. One of the reasons government is unable to solve the problems it creates, is the people in charge are so far above the law, they look down on us. Another, is...
Addressing false theology on tithing
My social media marketing person takes ownership of managing my account. She helps me with content (but not this blog) and finding means to expand my sphere of influence. It is not that I need to expand it, but I do want to see all the effort I put into my historical fiction get into as many people’s hands as I can. It certainly isn’t to make a lot of money! A few weeks ago, I was reviewing who was now a part of my feed, and there was a comment in there that made me see a veil of sin...
EARL NIGHTINGALE x AKIRA THE DON - CONFORMITY
“The opposite of courageIn our societyIs not cowardiceIt is conformityConformity” It’s a beautiful day to be alive, and Meaningwave has the soundtrack for you in the form of the effervescent new bop from Akira The Don and beloved radio host, author, and speaker EARL NIGHTINGALE! The message of CONFORMITY, that features a performance by Earl sampled from the 1956 classic, The Strangest Secret, contains the key you will need to not only survive, but thrive, amidst the emerging AI apocalypse....
Plowing Around The Stump
Plowing Around The Stump Posted on May 26, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, elites don’t understand the old saying, “It’s easier to plow around the stump.” Because to a progressive elite, every problem has to be addressed in the here and now. That’s one reason they discredit space technology, by claiming, “There are too many problems on Earth to spend money in space.” Progressives focus on the stump and not the field. Becoming fixated on problems that aren’t that big an issue…...
Free Expression or Government Censorship?
It's kind of hilarious that someone like Mark Zuckerberg would claim to stand for free expression when his platform, Meta, heavily censors. They deny this on podcasts, but behind closed doors, they'll admit it takes place. Now, of course, Meta is a private company that can do as it wishes. However, there have been instances where they have taken action against users' posts at the behest of government requests. This is unconstitutional and certainly against the idea of freedom of expression....
The Government Wants You Dumb And Weak, Obviously
I realize this post might come across as harsh or conspiratorial, but what I'm trying to assert goes much deeper than that. Without referring to any specific power institution, it should be obvious that those in power want to keep their power. There is a strong incentive, as power brings opportunities for more money and influence—things others cannot access. History has shown that those who hunger for power often get carried away, especially when that power starts to slip from their grasp,...
STEM and The Humanities
Of course, there are lots of bits and pieces of poetry and prose and notable quotes associated with STEM. Some are mildly amusing, like the children's novels of mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson written under his pen name "Lewis Carroll", such as 'Alice in Wonderland'. Here is another interesting snippet entitled "Siphonaptera" by mathematician and logician Augustus De Morgan: Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em, And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad...
Irish medical bodies almost uniformly against...
The Irish Medical Council recently dropped from its ethical guidelines the prohibition on doctors deliberately killing their patients. It is hard to believe they are not paving the way for euthanasia. However, they made this change without properly consulting their members. However, most of the bodies representing the medical profession in Ireland remain firmly opposed. This was confirmed after the recommendations of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Assisted Dying in favour of the practice...
Questioning "Safe and Effective" Narratives
The term "gaslighting" refers to making someone doubt their own perception of reality, even when they are experiencing that reality firsthand. Many of us have felt this over the past few years, particularly regarding the assertion that certain products were entirely safe and effective. While this is a complex discussion, it is clear to many that there are undeniable harms associated with what was promoted to us during this time. Language manipulation has been a significant part of this...
The Distraction Of The Trump Trials
The Distraction Of The Trump Trials Posted on June 1, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, the Trump trials are distractions, as are the verdicts. We’re fixated on a meaningless theatrical production while the elite drag us closer to nuclear obliteration. Trump won’t go to jail, he would be murdered instantly. The Secret Service knows that, as do we all, and so they can’t allow it. The only effect of the play is to keep Trump from speaking, campaigning and fixing our attention…...
Don't Trust Government
Someone once called me a grifter for attacking our institutions, which I find quite hilarious for a few reasons. Firstly, those who throw around names like that are often projecting their own insecurities. They embody what they accuse others of being. Secondly, people love categorizing others as a way to avoid critical thinking. This ties into heuristics and biases within the brain, topics I often discuss here. The term "grifter" has become so diluted, much like many words that gain...
The 10 foot rule
In previous posts, I’ve mentioned that my daughter is quite the fish. She’s an incredible swimmer. Floaties, noodles, and puddle-jumpers are for “babies.” She’s a “big kid,” apparently (lol). I may be too comfortable with her in the water. However, I did lifeguard for years. And I still (involuntarily) watch the pool for struggling swimmers. I had to occasionally “rescue” swimmers as a lifeguard. My eyes never leave my daughter when she is swimming. If I’m not swimming with her, I sit on the...
Sleeper Cell Migration
Sleeper Cell Migration Posted on June 4, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, if migrants are paying 10k each to be shuttled across the border, that means we’re getting middle class people seeking a better life… as well as paid agitators. No starving migrant has 10k to drop… proving the point. A few million people at 10k each adds up to quite a sum of illegally acquired money. Moreover, illegally acquired money is corrupting. Which means our governments are corrupted by it. The...
Comments on a Commencement Speech
Consider the following statement from an MIT commencement ceremony 25 years ago: “If you feel the urge to create and discover and to do something that will bring you fulfillment and happiness, do it now while you're young. You will never have more energy or enthusiasm, hair, or brain cells than you have today.” -- NPR’s Car Talk host Ray Magliozzi ’72 speaking with his brother Tom Magliozzi ’58 at MIT’s 1999 Commencement 25 years ago. This is sort of a clever and mildly humorous piece of...
SCOTUS And Protests
SCOTUS And Protests Posted on June 6, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, if we take the democrats at their word, then they’re are calling for the execution of Supreme Court Justices. Only a few decades ago, when SCOTUS was on their side, they unanimously claimed anyone criticizing any SCOTUS decision, was tantamount to calling for the execution of Judges. They were adamant about it at the time. Going on to say that judges are wise and honest, thus would never allow politics to...
Look Who Steamed Into Port - the Adm Gorshkov
This is no ordinary warship; it is the pride of the Russian Navy. Admiral Gorshkov is the model upon which Russia will project its 21st-century sea-going fighting force. The ship carries 210 sailors, is 443 feet long, and has 48 cells from which to fire some of the most advanced missiles in the world, including the Kalbir and hypersonic Zircon. Those missiles were sent to deliver a message to Washington. The question is whether this Administration will get the point.The Adm Gorshkov is...
Migration Proves Communism Evil And Capitalism...
Migration Proves Communism Evil And Capitalism Good Posted on June 13, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, action betrays even self delusion. We’re self interested, and we do what we believe is in our self interest. We don’t work hard to harm ourselves. Do you? Judging from history and modernity, people everywhere and of all stripes believe it’s in their self interest to live in a capitalist country, and not a socialist or communist one. How do we know the one follows from the...
Reaching Pigs Without Pearls: Matthew 7:1-6
One of the oddest things for Jesus to teach comes right after Jesus shares a message about hypocrisy and being intentional about how we should help others. Taken by itself, it may be one of the meanest of Jesus’ teachings – but even while it may not be politically correct, the theme that is shared may surprise you. After drawing our attention onto how we should focus on personal growth in order to truly be able to help others (this equals fixing issues in our lives before helping...
It's The Inflation Battle: The White House vs...
Fed Chairman Jerome Powell before Congress. ** Inflation—we see it everywhere: when we go to the grocery store, out to eat, or fill up the car. Prices are higher everywhere, and so much so that it's having a real impact on our standard of living. So, what are our government leaders doing about this problem? How are they helping resolve this bout of inflation? It's an interesting question, and you may be surprised by the answers. What's fascinating about today's inflation is that it began...
Mom Brain
Artist: Mark Arian Yesterday, one of my students made a silly comment. “It’s good for you to help me with my work. If your brain is still going, you won’t get dementia being a stay-at-home mom.” I laughed. I thoroughly enjoy working with this student. She has a great sense of humor. I do, however, find it quite obvious (based on her statement) that she has never had kids of her own. You see, my daughter is three now, and she’s beginning to ask questions. It’s really not easy. She’s kind of...
Father's Day from the perspective of the...
With Father’s Day pending, I want to share a lesson from the Every Man A Warrior (EMAW) course. Four weeks of the 30 total weeks discuss parenting and fatherhood. The author believes it reflects the relationship between God and us more than any other. Marriage, money, making your life matter, handling adversity, Knowing God, etc., are also topics in the course, but parenting includes the greatest number of pages of education. It was a wonderful lesson as a student, and I enjoy it even...
The Draft
The Draft Posted on June 16, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, a draft would be a terrible thing, because it would further empower an insane elite. Anyone who’s read any of my articles understands how utterly out of control our elites are. So we have to ask ourselves, do we want lunatics to have even more power? Only a fool would answer yes. The draft would allow them to bypass public sentiment and impose their will without feedback. Why do I say this? The volunteer army is a...
Trust Should Be Earned
Trust is something that should be earned. The story in this image highlights the corruption of some giant pharmaceutical organizations. A few years ago, it seemed like everyone wanted to believe these companies had good intentions, but history proves otherwise. Many of these companies have caused serious harm with their products, leading to numerous lawsuits. In some instances, there's evidence showing they knew about the harms even as they continued to market the drugs. An example is Bayer,...
The Swindling Of America
The Swindling Of America Posted on June 20, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, in Biden’s America you feel swindled, because you are being swindled. The clear and obvious double standard in law enforcement, mind numbing inflation as the Fed strangles us and our pay, are a few signs. While the media claims everything is fine and GDP is rising fast! Not because your fortune is rising, it’s falling, but because the government is printing and spending so much. The government is...
Bank Reserves Are The Key To Economic Stability
"In a highly leveraged economy, collateral/reserves are essential." US Treasury Building. ** In this article, I’d like to pull back the curtain and delve into how financial institutions operate and why we’re headed for a collateral or reserve crisis. I was a Financial And Operations Principal (FINOP) for several brokerage firms for many years. Although the specific rules and regulations differed, Banks, Insurance Companies, Brokers, and other financial institutions function under similar...
Ten Commandments in schools
The recent law regarding Louisiana’s choice to place the Ten Commandments in the classroom has created great uproar and equally great conversation. I have had a few dialogs so far, and I have liked all of them. Embedded in all of them is an unexpected layer of education. Those back-and-forth discussions convinced me that I needed to share. Opponents to the Ten Commandments in public classrooms say that it is a breach of the fundamental law of the separation of church and state. They also...
Is Peace Possible?
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken departs Tel Aviv. ** You can feel the tension build by the day. The world is embroiled in two hot wars: the War in Ukraine and the War in Gaza. These two conflicts continue to escalate almost by the hour. What was considered unthinkable is now accepted as the latest strategy in a long march that threatens to become global. Washington is the common denominator in both conflicts. Without the White House’s military and financial support, neither Kyiv nor...
In Response to The Quantum Mechanics of...
(Originally posted July 2021) “If you don’t have a leg to stand on, you can’t put your foot down.” – Robert Altman With all due respect Mr. Herskovitz, because we all have our own thoughts, opinions, points of view and expressions, I found your article repugnant and full of holes like swiss cheese. Therefore, I respectfully disagree with you regarding your views on abortion and the pseudoscience of fetal viability. Every fetus is life and holds the building blocks of humanity as you and I...
Changing Our Hearts: Luke 20:27-40
We have covered most parts of this passage in previous journal entries, but there is still one piece left: the crowd’s reaction – which has been recorded in both Luke and Matthew. Matthew tells us broadly that, “When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.” (Matthew 22:33 TNIV) We see here Jesus taught things from a completely different perspective than the perspective the other religious teachers taught from – and this new perspective, including the truth it...
The Rise And Fall Of Civilizations
The Rise And Fall Of Civilizations Posted on June 10, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, our Constitutional Rights are only as robust, as the ethics of those tasked with protecting them. Otherwise they’re only ink on paper. Even the ideas it contains, the American societal myth, is only as marshaling as they’re taken seriously by the elite. Civilizations are founded on a societal myth. That “myth” is the founding ethos, way of life and right action in that civilization. All...
Navigating an Unhealthy Environment
I often say that our environment is filled with low-hanging fruits that are easy to grab but often lead us down unhealthy paths. There are many reasons why our surroundings are set up this way, but it’s something we must be mindful of when considering our health. If we passively accept our environment as it is, we lack mindfulness, intention, strategy, and the values needed to make healthier choices. Simply stumbling into whatever environment we find ourselves in is a recipe for failure. Our...
The Good, the Bad, and the Obvious
The Good, the Bad, and the Obvious Luke 19:10 KJV “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” It’s been a while since I shared my opinions and takeaways on domestic and global matters. As an American Christian conservative woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, voter, friend to all underdogs, pet owner and best cookie baker ever, it’s both an honor and a privilege to express my First Amendment right to write. Especially in such perilous times when women are being blamed...

Elite Jokes
Elite Jokes Posted on June 12, 2024 by john Dear friends, A bureaucrat and a clergyman died and went to heaven. After accepting them, Saint Peter led the clergyman to a small room with only a table, chair and bed. The bureaucrat became worried at this. Until Saint Peter stopped at a huge mansion, teeming with angelic servants. The Bureaucrat asked why he got such a nice place while the good clergyman’s was so humble. Saint Peter said, “You have to realize, we get thousands of clergymen a...
Evaluating Judicial Candidates
In Washington state, judicial races are nonpartisan. The argument supporting a nonpartisan designation is that judges should be unbiased and neutral in their interpretation of the law. I think that’s a nice fantasy, but in reality, everyone has a bias, including judges. If judicial bias didn’t exist, appointments to the U.S. Supreme court would not be so contentious. We all know that judges have a bias, and we know that often the bias is either strongly conservative or strongly liberal. ...
Who checks the fact checkers? From the point...
How did it happen that the world population became so dumbed down and lazy that they are willing to blindly follow and believe everything which is said by governments and the media while medical specialists are being censored and suppressed? Who checks the fact checkers? From the view point of an uneducated layman. Why does it not bother anyone that no debate is allowed surrounding this world wide epidemic? Why is no one discussing the fact that China has unleashed a biological weapon...
The Uniparty
In America, we operate with a two-party system, and I often discuss how this setup seems to create more problems than it solves. Not only does it foster a sports-like team mentality that can turn us against our neighbors, but it also creates the illusion of diverse choices when that isn't actually the case. A closer look at these political establishments might reveal that they share very similar values—or some might say, a lack of values. Over the past few decades, regardless of the choices...
FDA Approved Does Not Mean "Safe"
The FDA has a history of allowing drugs to enter the market after minimal testing, often manipulated with statistical trickery. Nearly one out of every three drugs approved by the FDA has a new safety issue detected following approval, according to a Yale-led study (2017). This highlights an inherent flaw within the system. Notable examples include Vioxx and thalidomide. Today, many argue that a similar situation is unfolding with the novel products from companies like Pfizer and Moderna....
Caving In to the Crowd: Luke 23:13-25
In Jesus’ trial before Pilate, each of the gospel writers focuses on the event in a slightly different way. In Luke’s gospel, we see Pilate trying to give a judgment that tries to balance his belief in Jesus’ innocence and the crowd’s demands for death. Luke tells us that Pilate called everyone together and said to them, “You brought me this man. You said he was turning the people against the authorities. I have questioned him in front of you. I have found no basis for your charges...
Identity and Feelings in Current Society
I recently read an article that was a brief expository analysis of the link between identity and desire made in our changing culture. The author, while in grad school for English literature, registered for a course in science fiction. Little did he know at the time that he had actually registered for a class in lesbian science fiction. I won’t go into the sixteen-week challenge he faced, but suffice it to say that the traditionalist student eventually elicited a response of “that’s...
The Silence on Vaccine Withdrawals Speaks Volumes
I find it interesting how quiet some people are about the recent AstraZeneca news. From the start, these products were celebrated as 100% safe and effective by the media, with harms being incredibly rare, urging all of us to use them for the supposedly greater good. Any suspicious inquiries or concerns about possible health risks were met with pejorative terms, name-calling, dismissal, and marginalization. Headlines celebrated the fact that these products were legally free from liability,...
BRUCE LEE ENTERS THE MU… THERE IS NO OPPONENT!
Brothers and sisters, make some noise for the immortal BRUCE LEE, who makes his long anticipated Meaningwave Universe debut with this week’s instant-classic new single THERE IS NO OPPONENT In the MU Venn diagram, this would likely be the circle where Alan Watts and Jocko intersect. Or one of the places. There are many rooms in the mansion, and many pathways in the MU, which is now coming up on 600 songs on DSPS… and more in those rare places… THERE IS NO OPPONENT is out now on all platforms,...
Manipulating Language, Thought And Action
Manipulating Language, Thought And Action Posted on June 21, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, the left’s ability to manipulate language, allows them to flip right into wrong and good into evil. In doing so they control thought itself. This strategy to manipulate the masses has worked astonishingly well. Control what people think of a thing and you can make the most evil palatable. Edward Bernays noticed the low spot, dug the channel, and others have widened and deepened it...
Curse of Artaxerxes I strikes again
Artaxerxes I was the emperor of Persia from 465 BC to 425 BC. During his reign, he allowed for the Israelites to return back to their homeland after being held captive by the Babylonians during the 6th century BC. When some of the people returned back to Jerusalem under the leadership of Ezra the scribe, then the letter that Artaxerxes gave to Ezra was copied and made public to the people. One of the sentences in the letter is a long-standing curse that has been full-proof for over 2,400...

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7 NIV) “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” (Colossians 4:2 NIV) “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” (Psalm 145:18 NIV) One habit I began several years ago and do my best...
Medical Stubbornness: A Threat to Your Health
I find it peculiar that some medical professionals haven't changed their views on these novel medical products one bit, even as new evidence emerges. This rigidity reminds me of past medical catastrophes like thalidomide and Vioxx. As these disasters unfolded, many doctors and pharmacists defended these harmful drugs until the last minute, despite growing evidence of harm. This isn't about agreeing with my perspective; it's about the essence of science, which is open-mindedness and...
Health Choices vs. Industrial Agendas
It's no secret that many of our biggest American industries support each other. While some may deny this, those paying attention realize that the big food industry collaborates with the medical industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and even the government. These partnerships create conflicts of interest and build an industrial complex that significantly affects our lives, environment, and culture. To have more control over our lives, we must recognize that these industrial complexes exist...
Health Freedom Amid Political Control
Someone pointed out that some of my posts have a political nature, which might seem off-topic since I'm a health coach. I get that. But today, politics permeates almost every aspect of society—from music and TV shows to news channels, each with their spin. The pandemic especially politicized health. This shift is partly due to perceived encroachment by politically affiliated organizations and government institutions on individual health decisions. I personally stand against this...
The CCP’s Expansionist Aims
The CCP’s Expansionist Aims Posted on May 30, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, if I were the psychopathic totalitarian ruler of China, and I wanted desperately to conquer Taiwan, I would implement a plan similar to the one Whinny the Pooh is. I would take out my target’s primary allies, and instill so much fear in others, that no one comes to their aid.

Hey Critical Thinkers! I know it's been a while since my last update—about five weeks, to be exact. The reason for my absence is twofold: I recently moved into a new house, and the process took longer than expected. On top of that, I've been busy rebranding my business, now known as Avantia Health Optimization. While Healthy & Awake Podcast remains the same, we've made several changes to the business. One exciting update is our new offer: your first health coaching session is just $1. This...
Migration And Human Nature
Migration And Human Nature Posted on May 31, 2024 by john Dear friends, It seems to me, people migrating to the US are all for Biden’s open borders, in other words, they’re democrats. Until they get here, then they’ll be all for closed borders, capitalism and freedom. In other words, they’ll become republicans. Because of human nature. When it’s in our interests for the US and Europe to have open borders, we’re totally in on open borders. Once we’re here however, and see the damage being...
The Bird Flu Plandemic
The Bird Flu Plandemic Posted on May 25, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems odd to me, it’s now normal for a twenty five year old, to die of a random heart attack. Back in the day, four years ago before the vaccine, such an occurrence was extremely rare, and usually instigated by cocaine. Today, it’s common as a six penny nail. Even the elite are dropping like flies. Sports figures having heart attacks, newscasters are dropping dead on air, as random people are getting turbo cancers. All...
As The World Burns
As The World Burns Posted on June 24, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, to borrow a phrase, our elites would rather rule over Hell than serve in Heaven. Which is one reason I worry the elite will burn the world down, before they cede control to populists. Our elite are people driven mad by lust. Lust for power. They start as ignorant teenagers, protesting and demanding others do as they foolishly order. They may not have a clue if their demands make any sense but are all too...
Yuval Noah Harari - A Useless Hack
Yuval Noah Harari - A Useless Hack (Originally posted September 2022) “Free will, that’s over. Free will is a dangerous myth.” – Harari It is my free will to call Yuval Noah Harari the biggest hack and imbecile on the planet due to his biased work not being authentic, but a superfluous betrayal and mockery of humanity and God. “The sin both of men and angels, was rendered possible by the fact that God gave us free will.” – C. S. Lewis Almighty God granted free will to Adam and Eve and...
The Scent of Rain
The Scent of Rain (Originally posted May 2024) Glorious yet ominous wispy clouds summon the scent before and after rain. Engulfed days of misty, foggy, melodramatic haze. Oh, mighty winds of Father Time, Blowing and whispering warnings of yesteryear, an omen of grave portent. The biblical flood a requisite, emblematic of barbaric earthly sin. Cleansing, replenishing, rebirthing humans, beasts, and land. White dove descends offering an olive branch to all tribes of man. Present state of...
Who Are You?
Who are you? Such a simple question on the surface. Yet, the truth is, you and I are as difficult to define as the very fabric of the Universe. After all, we're made of the same stuff, are we not? Ghosts piloting meat suits made of stardust. We are all Consciousness experiencing Being in a three-dimensional world. That is the root of our existence. This three-dimensional space with its seemingly unidirectional flow of time into the future, is but a classroom in which we can learn and grow....
Life is Precious, and Fragile.
I took an innocent life not long ago. It was a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing. One of those moments that feels completely out of your control, and yet you feel fully responsible for the grisly results. I ran over a chipmunk on my way to work. I didn't see it until it was too late. I tried to swerve and miss it, but my tire moved directly in line with the creature’s path instead, and collision ensued. The most horrible thing about the ordeal is the fact that from a physical point of view,...
Dawkins Vs Ali...
""Theological BULLSH*T!" Richard Dawkins Challenges Ayaan Hirsi Ali's New-Found Christianity - YouTube Dawkins centres first on the nonsense of Christianity being obsessed by sin. Ali counters that Christians obsess on love and redemption and renewal and rebirth. As a Christian, I give the first point to Ali. Ali the offers a counter punch against Dawkins and his mockery of Christians. Dawkins goes back to the idea that Christianity believes in nonsense, like resurrection. For Ali, she sees...
Who Is Volodymyr Zellenskyy?
He's one of the most recognizable people in today's world. Nearly every day, you see Zelenskyy on television. With his distinctive green shirt and camo pants, he has become a regular on TV news, especially in America. But as famous and well-known as he is today, many analysts feel that his most critical days lie ahead of him. In just 12 days, Zelenskyy will preside over a "Peace Summit." Aimed at ending the Russo-Ukraine War, this Summit was initiated by Zelenskyy, and if successful, it...
Elitists Banning Democracy To Protect Democracy
Elitists Banning Democracy To Protect Democracy Posted on June 19, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, in Germany, elitists are threatening to ban populists, to protect democracy. In their singular void of self awareness… despotic elitists are calling the populist AFD, a threat to democracy. People who openly avow that populism, (the ignorant grazing masses seeking their own interest), is evil. They must believe the opposite then… only the interests of the elite count. Which...
Subterranean Utopia
Subterranean Utopia Posted on May 24, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, had Hillary won in 2016, the US wouldn’t be a country today. Trump saved us, for a few years, but now the deep state is in charge again… and the nation is in mortal peril. No one could have thought old sleepy Joe would have done so much damage to this nation, in so few years… but they didn’t consider the eight years of Obama softening this country up. When Obama left office the nation was teetering. Trump...
Government doubles down on what amounts to...
A Bill that will allow surrogacy is currently being debated in the Seanad as it reaches the final stages of approval. The Government tells us it will not recognise commercial surrogacy, but in fact it will do so by allowing big payments to surrogate mothers under the heading “reasonable expenses”. The Assisted Human Reproduction Bill 2022 addresses numerous issues related to artificial reproduction, such as IVF and embryo experimentation, which have deep ethical problems. However, another...
In the Eye of the Beholder: Mark 15:21-24
During Jesus’ crucifixion, I am fascinated at the detail Mark shares that Jesus’ clothes were divided up among the soldiers and they threw lots to determine who would get what. Mark specifically tells us: “The soldiers crucified Jesus and divided his clothes among themselves, throwing lots to decide what each soldier would get.” (Mark 15:24 NCV) This stands out in my mind because even 1 year later, Jesus’ clothing would have been incredibly valuable for sentimental reasons, and no later...
The Charging Elephant Of History
The Charging Elephant Of History Posted on June 7, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, history is like a charging elephant, and we’re riders who only set atop it for a mere moment, before being swept off, and replaced by the next generation. That’s why education is so important. My generation did a terrible job guiding the charging elephant, and providing education for the next generation, as proved by the times. Hopefully the next few generations will do a better job at...
Does America Still Have A Representative...
US Civil Defense Logo, discontinued in 1972. This nation was founded upon a unique idea, one that had rarely, if ever, been tried before. It was the concept that the people should elect the head of government and that the head of government should represent the people. We say it every day, so often that it becomes a mere recitation: " We have a representative government," but we rarely, if ever, think about it. Implicit in this is the concept that our...
Organized Crime And Appearances
Organized Crime And Appearances Posted on June 9, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, when one is in organized crime, appearances are paramount. No matter if the organization is the Yakuza, the Cosa nostra, or government. Appearances are important because they convey the idea of legitimacy to the otherwise illegitimate. That’s one reason gangsters constantly say they’re legitimate businessmen, as bureaucrats claim to be public servants. Copying religion, organized crime endeavors...
Corpus Christi
Sacraments On 02 Jun 2024 the church celebrated the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, which in that old efficient language, Latin, is simply Corpus Christi. This feast day has much of my parish talking about the Sacrament of the Eucharist, in which Jesus Christ manifests in the form of unleavened bread and otherwise undistinguished wine. The authority on what this means and how it happens is Thomas Aquinas, to be found at length in his Summa Theologica. While on an airplane, I browsed...
