Scripture Reading: Job 14:1-2, ASV
“Man, that is born of a woman, is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: He fleeth also as a shadow and continueth not.”
Who would have thought that we now face the real possibility of WWIII with all the trouble and tribulation that goes with it? Many are wondering, “…What in the world is going on; this is crazy.” Even the well-known Glenn Beck on his talk show is asking listeners to call in and let him know what’s going on. He confessed he cannot quite grasp what is happening — that something is not quite right. He is usually good at putting things together on the global scale, but not about the war against Ukraine. I wanted to call in and say, “Glenn, it’s really quite simple… (etc.)” And yes, Mr. Beck, there’s more to this than simply the weakness of O’Biden — it is his hostile moves of military hardware and failed diplomacy. This is a point that should be known to all the so-called conservatives, for without this knowledge (i.e., global conspiracy) they must side with the Left. [Note: Three days later Beck says he figured it out — that it is a “trap” for the U.S. that we must avoid. In that, he is partly correct.]
How did we get here? When O’Biden assumed the presidency, one of the first things he said was, “America is back.” I thought, what that really means in relation to foreign policy, is that the Jew-nited States of America’s thuggery is back. Little did I realize it would bring us to the edge of a nuclear disaster. We cannot predict what will happen — only time will tell. But a little bit of honest history can alleviate such mental gymnastics (or worry).
The struggle for freedom is the struggle of all. Like the breakaway republics in Ukraine, now recognized by Russia, Texas has long considered the possibility of making the same political move. Other states have also considered becoming republics in order to avoid federal abuses. This was the intent of our founders. They never intended that we be an empire with a strong central government. This concept of independent states also prompted the Confederacy in 1861. They nearly won that struggle. But alas, that same struggle remains!
The People’s Convoy for Freedom culminated in Washington, D.C. yesterday. This is the third year of the Covid-19 insanity: masking nonsense (political theater), “vaccines” (bio-weapon), coercion, and mandates; although it is waning. Many will be waving flags in support of the trucker convoy, who are calling for the end of the declared emergency.
Speaking of flags, have you noticed there are sprouting up groups of people flying the flag of Ukraine. Since when do Americans fly any other flag but their own? Even cities are showing the colors of the unfortunate nation under siege. And, of course, we sympathize with the locals in that position. But, did it ever occur to any of those people that they might be flying the wrong flag? How do they know who is right and who is wrong in this war? For example, if Russian troops were to land in Cincinnati, these flag wavers would be instant targets!
Trouble and suffering often trickles down to the grassroots level — the people. And, it is often left to the people to remedy such situations. But how can the people act unless they truly know what is happening in their nation? This is the main reason for the church, to keep their people informed with the truth. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32) Further, the church is not just the source of theological truth, but of all truth. “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth.” (John 16:13) The word truth appears 119 times in the New Testament alone. We instinctively know the importance of truth. We also have the most powerful weapon in the world — prayer. But if we do not know the truth, then how can we direct our prayers and exploits to the source? We must know the truth and we must know our enemy. Duty is ours — the results are up to God.
Ukraine and Russia: History Matters by Karsten Riise, Feb. 11, 2022
The first historic Russian empire was Kievan-Rus, which was founded by the Vikings and King Rurik, who sailed from the Baltic Sea through the rivers Daugava and Dnepr down to the Black Sea and Constantinople.
In 882 CE they made Kyiv the capital of the first Russian kingdom. The Mongols put a final end to Kievan-Rus in the 13th century, but the Rurik dynasty then ruled from further north, in what was in the 15th century still just a small principality around another river city called Moscow. Only in 1598 did the ruling Ruriks die out in Moscow where they were succeeded by the Romanovs.
Ukraine did not exist as a country for hundreds of years and was only revived (or created) after the Russian Revolution in 1917, just 105 years ago. Immediately after, Ukraine was absorbed again, by the Soviet Union and only reappeared once as an independent country again nearly by accident only 31 years ago in 1991, when Russia’s Boris Yeltsin got Ukraine’s Leonid Kuchma hooked on the idea of dissolving the Soviet Union in a coup declaring Russia and Ukraine independent.
For hundreds of years, Ukraine was run by Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, the Mongols, Turks Austria-Hungary, and Russia. There are few geographical boundaries in the vast plains in the easternmost parts of Europe, so armies and ravaging hordes have always been able to roam freely for thousands of years. First on horses. Later in tanks.
Most of the armies of Carl Gustav, Peter the Great, Napoleon, and even Hitler and Stalin crossed these enormous distances on foot. In just the last 105 years, Ukraine’s borders, language, and identification have changed several times.
More-often-than-not than marked variations in culture, language, and conscience between the various parts of what at any given time in history was identified as Ukraine.
Illustration : Fig. 1: Historical boundaries of Ukraine since 1917. Wikipedia Commons.
Crimea was part of Russia during Soviet times, and only “transferred” to Ukraine as an autonomous republic in a symbolic gesture as late as 1954. The yellow area on the map fig. 1 in Ukraine’s westernmost part is important also today. The area marked in yellow was until World War I ruled by Austria-Hungary, and its regional capital Lviv then had the German name, Lemberg.
The large green parts of Ukraine in Fig. 1 were part of Russia. Broadly speaking, the yellow area in Fig.1 was influenced by German and Central European culture and ideas. The great green area in fig.1 was influenced by the Russian language, culture, and ideas in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
It was in the western part of Ukraine (yellow on fig.1), that Ukrainian nationalism was born. This was due to the influences when nationalism was invented as an ideology as late as the 19th century. And it was also in this western part of Ukraine, where Fascism and later Nazism grew strong between the two World Wars.
Ultra-fascist Ukrainians influenced by Nazism in Germany in the West killed Poles, Lithuanians, Jews, and Russians who were seen as “un-Ukrainian”. It was also in this western part of Ukraine where Hitler recruited Ukrainian Nazis for SS Division Galizien during World War II. SS-leader Himmler was very careful to make sure that the Ukrainians he recruited for SS were extremely fanatic and loyal to Hitler in their Nazi convictions.
Even as Germany was losing World War II, the Ukrainian SS Nazis kept fighting loyally for Hitler, even on retreat all the way back to Berlin. Only a few weeks before Hitler shot himself in May 1945, did the Ukrainian SS-Nazi soldiers (on paper with SS symbols!) suddenly declare that they were now anti-Communist “freedom fighters” for Ukraine.
The USA probably very soon discovered their potential against Russia, right after World War II, thousands of these SS Ukrainians were discretely sent to Canada, where they formed a community and whitewashed their Nazi past.
The Abuse of Ukraine
After the (re) creation of Ukraine in 1991, Ukraine’s Nazi elements resurfaced as neo-Nazi and extreme right-wing political movements, again in Western Ukraine. I have seen plenty of research on this, and I here refer mainly to the scientific research of Prof. Per Anders Rudling from the University of Lund in Sweden.
As the existence of Ukraine, today is partly a coincidence, and Ukraine never had a unified nationalist movement or identity, these far-right forces have in the past decades been active in efforts to “write”, “design”, and invent a new “old” history of Ukraine, to create a “common” sense of “nation” for all of Ukraine.
This invention of a Ukrainian “nationality” has included the suppression and deletion of Russian culture and language in eastern Ukraine. It has also included disenfranchising the political influence of the people in eastern Ukraine for the benefit of western Ukraine within the power circles in Kyiv.
Nazis and far-right-wing groups supported by the US and then-Vice President Biden and Victoria Nuland were active as violent stormtroopers during the Maidan coup in Kyiv which in 2014 toppled Ukraine’s democratically elected president Yanukovych. In subsequent “free” elections the political parties which represented eastern Ukraine’s mainly Russian-speaking population were banned or criminalized.
The Abuse of Russia
In 1991, at the same time as Leonid Kuchma declared Ukraine’s independence of the Soviet Union, Boris Yeltsin in Russia also declared the independence of Russia from the Soviet Union. The motivation for both persons was not about ideology, liberalism, democracy, or anything else.
It was about personal power. Better be number one in an independent country, than number two in a union of countries. The economy collapsed in Russia. Using Maddison Data, I calculated in 2016, that Russia’s living standard in the period under Yeltsin fell by 5.3% every year from 1991 to 1999.
Compared to the time in the Soviet Union, Russian living standards fell by about one-third. Probably millions of people died prematurely of undernourishment, lack of medical care, and alcoholism.
For Russia, the 1990s became a decade with one of the worst declines in living standards for a developed country ever in peacetime. US ultra-liberal economists and the CIA ran Russia. Russian Nazis emerged. Russian Nazis took turns with old-time Communists, as they demonstrated on the Red Square and across Russia.
Meanwhile, because of US-designed privatization policies, oligarchs took over Russia’s biggest companies. The Russian Navy rusted, and army officers were not paid. Meanwhile, the US courted Boris Yeltsin in the White House. As Gorbachev once said: Only when Russia is weak, does the US love Russia.
To make matters worse for Russia, jihadists and other insurgents started a war in Russia’s Caucasus region. This war cost Russia 60,000 lives. Russia also faced several deadly incidents of terrorism including in a school and in a theatre and the destruction of the regional capital Grozny. Terrorist activities inside Russia are easy to support from forces operating in neighboring countries like Ukraine and Georgia.
After the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Russia gained an understanding from the USA that NATO would not expand eastwards, and at any rate, not into parts of the former Soviet Union.
Soon the US forgot that and expanded NATO with the three former Soviet Baltic Republics, with Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, and so on. After the dissolution of Yugoslavia, Russia was allowed by the West to participate in peacekeeping, but right from the beginning, Russia was marginalized.
Tensions increased. In 2003, Edvard Shevardnadze, who was on working terms with Russia, was democratically re-elected as leader in Georgia. In a US-financed and organized “color revolution”, Shevardnadze was toppled in a coup, and replaced by the US-friendly but deeply corrupt Saakashvili.
This was a further deterioration for Russia. The turning point came for Russia when Saakashvili started a war against the Russian population groups in Georgia while Russia’s President was being treated with champagne by the US President at the Olympic games in far-away Beijing in 2008.
The final disillusionment of Russia with the West came in 2014 with the US-engineered Maidan coup which toppled the democratically elected but Russia-friendly president Yanukovych in Ukraine. Immediately after this, Russian-speaking Ukrainians were targeted by the new government in Kyiv, and Russian-speaking insurgents rose in Ukraine’s eastern Donbass region.
Russia reacted by taking-over Crimea with a subsequent referendum. Ukrainian far-right movements and neo-Nazis organized private oligarch-financed armies to fight the Russian-speaking insurgents in Donbass, and Russia responded by militarily supporting the Russian-speaking insurgents.
Geopolitically, Ukraine is very sensitive to Russia. From Ukraine, there are only 440 kilometers to Moscow. If Crimea had not voted to become Russian, Russia’s Navy would have lost a foothold in the Black Sea.
From Ukraine, it is very easy to work inside Russia. As mentioned above, after 1991 Russia suffered from internal wars and terrorist attacks – and terrorist activities inside Russia are easy to support from forces operating in neighboring countries like Ukraine and Georgia.
Therefore, it was the last straw for Russia, when NATO decided in 2008 that Ukraine and Georgia should become members of NATO with a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP). NATO’s decision to give membership to Ukraine and Georgia was reiterated at the NATO summit in 2021. Russia is therefore under hard pressure to act.
Globalism the Key
The main key to understanding what is going on in the world is Globalism. At the surface level, when we see nations going to war, we do not necessarily see the underlying causes, and we ask, why. The common idea that “the party who fires the first shot” is the aggressor is a surface idea; but, “what caused that shot to be fired” is the foundation in discovering the true guilty party.
Therefore, the enemy of freedom today should not be viewed geographically as nation against nation, it should be viewed philosophically as globalism versus independence. Some countries do not want to come under global governance, they want to keep their national sovereignty. This is true of Russia and true of many states within the United States. The biggest problem is that many people are blind to the concept of a conspiracy to take over and control the world. They simply are unaware that there actually is such a move behind the scenes. Why are they unaware? Because they believe TV which makes no mention of it. They go along to get along. This is surface level reasoning and “following the herd” mentality. The solution is critical thinking (which is not taught in schools), research, and “marching to the beat of your own drum.”
Now, I’ve heard all kinds of terrible things about president Putin of Russia; but I also have heard all kinds of terrible things about Hitler too. One thing I have learned, — there is another side to the story. So when someone gets vilified 100% of the time, I must doubt the veracity of what I am hearing. How do I know if all these things are true or not? One thing I do know, is that our own government lies nearly all the time! And they accuse others of what they do. Why should I believe them? So, I must consider the integrity of the other side.
Why are so many Republicans joining with Democrats in their condemnation of Putin? Very simple; in the light of globalism (and its Great Reset), maybe they are globalist players for the New World Order. Americans ought to be against such domination and for independence; after all, that’s how we came upon the world stage. Putin too believes in these principles. He sees the new Russia as sovereign and independent from globalism. He wants no part of a dishonest crony capitalism; yet he has made Russia great with capitalism. He realizes that the old Soviet Union was wrong in various ways; and he is aware of how people suffered during that time. Putin places Russia first; just as Trump put America first. That’s what a leader is supposed to do.
“OBiden” says of Putin’s invasion, “Who does he think he is? He has no right to carve up his neighbor” (or something similar). But I ask: did king George have the right to seize firearms at Lexington; did president Lincoln have the right to send troops to re-supply Fort Sumter after South Carolina had seceded; did the Obama/Biden administration have the right to finance a coup and overthrow Ukraine’s president in 2014 and install their own puppet president? The answer to all of these is a resounding “No!” The effects of this U.S. coup are now being seen. The break-away republics of Donetsk and Luhansk asked president Putin for help after a continuing escalating war of eight years, with the violation of the Minsk Agreement (cease fire) by Ukraine. Putin simply recognized their independence. Therefore, was it wrong for Putin to send in the military to help ethnic Russians from being slaughtered by their country’s government? I don’t believe so. This was the same situation that Hitler faced when he invaded Poland. I think he did the right thing, morally; but yet he was condemned by the powers that be (globalists), and WWII began.
Speaking of this coup in Kiev, the U.S. installed their puppet presidents, first, Poroshenko, then, Zelensky, both jews. I also noticed in one of the videos coming out of Kiev, a car loading up with weapons for the opposition, and on the dashboard, an Israeli flag. Just a hint as to who is behind this war.
So, Putin’s invasion is simply his way of reversing the subversive works of Soros, Mossad, CIA, Obama, McCain, Nuland and all their comrades in the 2014 insurrection of the Ukrainian capitol. No wonder they have to demonize Putin. He is not a world player — he is against globalism and communism.
The Ukraine Crisis: Facts Versus Lies — An American Christian Perspective, Thomas Ertl, Feb. 20, 2022
Let us look at the western Empire’s media lies and propaganda and contrast it with the facts. I write from the worldview of an American protestant who places his Christian religion above his nationalism.
LIE #1: RUSSIA IS AN ENEMY OF THE WEST.
Since the Soviet empire fell and the various satellite nations of the Eastern Bloc gained their independence, the present Russian Federation, created in 1991, has done nothing to threaten the United States or to compromise its borders. They have not planted military bases near the United States, nor have they posed any threat to our economy. Yes, Russia is competing with the US to provide natural gas to Europe, but they are doing so in a capitalist free-market manner. Their product is quicker and cheaper. Remember, it was Germany who asked Russia to build Nord Stream II.
If the question is formulated, “Was the Soviet Union an enemy of the US?”, then the answer would be yes. But there is no more Soviet Union, which Reagan accurately labeled “the Evil Empire,” with its expansionist military aggression. Russian president Putin has come under tremendous criticism in his own country for being conciliatory to the US in his public addresses, referencing the US as “colleagues and partners.”
Putin, along with his foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, has always resorted to dialogue and cooperation rather than coercive military action, “foreign aid” bribes, or meddling in the internal affairs of other nations. When dealing with the Empire and NATO, the foreign policy of Russia toward Ukraine has been strictly defensive. Their time is running out. Just as the United States in the early ‘60s did not want Russian nukes in Cuba, so too, Russia does not want NATO military bases and missiles in the Ukraine. When one examines “just the facts,” what we see is Russia’s unbelievable forbearance in the face of ceaseless aggression of the Empire.
LIE #2: VLADIMIR PUTIN IS A “THUG.”
This mantra is chanted ruthlessly by “conservative” commentators such as Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Ben Shapiro. Nevertheless, upon examination, none of their inflammatory statements are supported by facts or evidence. Their propaganda relies on hearkening back to a bygone era, old Soviet stereotypes and distant memories of past decades.
Putin is a European Russian. Out of a population of 144 million people, fully 111 million live west of the Ural Mountains in the continent of Europe. In religion and culture… In Putin’s last four presidential elections from 2000–2018, he had vote margins over his closest competitor of 23.9%, 58.1%, 46.2%, and 64.9%. What Western politician could ever have this level of admiration and respect from his people as Putin does?
Putin was secretly baptized as an infant in 1952 by his mother at an underground Orthodox Church ceremony. He identifies himself as a Russian Orthodox Christian and often attends Sunday services in Moscow. Is Putin’s faith genuine? That’s between him and God… He is very close to and supportive of the Russian Orthodox Church and has been instrumental in renewing Russia’s historic “symphonia” relationship between church and state. In America, the government attacks the church. In Russia, church and state work together to advance Christian culture… Their 1,000-year Christian faith is their foundation.
In reality, Putin will go down in Russian history as one of its greatest princes if not the greatest. In miraculous fashion, he has decoupled Russia from the Western banking oligarchs [the main reason he is demonized, as Hitler], severed the Russian economy from Western parasites, restored Russian defenses, and shown the nation the path to full recovery after over 70 years of brutal communism. In the world of modern diplomacy, Putin is the foremost adult in a room of impulsive Western boys and avaricious megalomaniacs.
LIE #3: UKRAINE IS A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY.
This is one of the “whoppers.” The fact is that Ukraine is currently a vassal state of the Anglo-American Empire, and its shadow government is being run out of the United States embassy in Kiev, being led and orchestrated by a Russophobe, neocon American, Victoria Nuland, who serves as the Under Secretary of State. Any sovereignty Ukraine possessed disappeared when the US State Department engineered a coup d’état where democratically elected president Viktor Yanukovych was forced to flee in 2014. The main narrative created by the war party, and their conservative pundits is, “Ukraine is a sovereign country, and it deserves US protection and support.”
…The regime change in Ukraine’s government was under the direct control of the United States, which has installed its successive puppets. Americans are very comfortable with effecting “regime change” while hypocritically talking about “respecting sovereignty.” The dissonance could not be clearer.
If American commentators are really concerned about Ukraine sovereignty, shouldn’t they be exposing the past actions against Ukraine by the US State Department and NATO?
LIE #4: UKRAINE SHOULD BE FREE TO JOIN NATO.
This lie cannot be effectively understood without knowing the history of NATO (1949) and the dissolving of the Soviet Union in 1991. NATO was created as a military alliance of Western European countries, including Canada and the US, to counter FDR, Churchill, and Truman’s assistance to Stalin’s invasion of seven Eastern European countries by 1948.
The Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991, and the Russian Federation formed with pro-Empire president, Boris Yeltsin, installed. At the time, George H. W. Bush, James Baker, and American diplomats assured President Gorbachev that NATO would not expand eastward. None of these agreements were put in writing (Gorbachev’s mistake) and the US went back on their commitment. NATO, which started with 12 members as an answer to the former Warsaw Pact nations, now stands at 30 members and is constantly working to surround Russia with additional NATO states. The Warsaw Pact was dissolved on July 1, 1991, after communism fell.
The issue over Ukraine membership in NATO, is Russian security and Article 5 of the NATO member states’ agreement. Article 5 is based on military alliance commitments that when one member state is attacked, all other NATO members must come to its defense. This absurd article is a sure path to war. This is similar to the “entangling alliances” over Serbia that compelled Europe to the disaster of WWI.
A simple application of the Golden Rule brings this all in perspective. How would we respond if Russia built and fortified military bases in Cuba, Mexico, and Canada, and stocked it with nuclear missiles? We all know how that went over. Why should anyone expect Russia not to respond similarly when NATO seeks to expand into Ukraine and place massive amounts of military equipment and even nukes on its border? Why can’t we be honest about this? Why do our conservative commentators never bring this up for discussion?
LIE #5: RUSSIA IS THE AGGRESSOR IN THE UKRAINE CRISIS.
This lie is another whopper. The US, which runs Ukraine, has placed CIA operatives and numerous military advisers throughout Ukraine, along with offensive and defensive military weapons. Supplying military equipment to a border country is in itself an act of war. In response, Russia has had to build up its defenses in its own country near the Ukraine border and in Belarus.
The Empire and NATO is moving toward Russia’s front porch, just miles from Moscow and yet Russia is the aggressor? Putin currently has stated that Russia has nowhere else to retreat. It is commonly said that the side which fires the first shot starts the war. This is not actually true. It is another neocon trick. It is the one who makes firing the first shot necessary who starts the war. The Empire’s endgame with Russia is to encircle, attack, destroy, and subjugate.
LIE #6: THE US IS IN UKRAINE TO HELP THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE.
This claim is laughable. When the Empire decapitates a nation, installs their own puppets, and takes control of a country, that country ends up being plundered financially by being made dependent on their conquerors.
In the days of the Soviet Union, and even after the collapse of communism in 1991, the Ukraine was an agricultural and industrial center. Since 1991, and the Empire’s regime change in 2014, Ukraine has become Europe’s poorest country and has lost 14.7 million people. Ukraine has fared no differently than other nations brought under Western hegemony, facing poverty, destruction of its defenses, massive loss of population, and third world dependency. Who is the real aggressor?
The only reason the US State Department is in Ukraine is in order to destabilize Russia. The Empire’s plan is to isolate Russia by the numerous color revolutions it organizes in the nations that border Russia. The most recent example is what just happened this January in Kazakhstan. The culprits in this recent revolution are the same: CIA, English MI6, and Israel’s Mossad.
LIE #7: IF RUSSIAN MILITARY ENTERS UKRAINE, IT WILL BE AN ILLEGAL INVASION OF A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY.
No, the invasion has already taken place since 2005 and 2014 by the Empire and NATO. If the Russian military enters Ukraine, it will be for purposes of liberation of the Ukrainian people from their present conquerors… Russia is committed to defend Russians in the Donbas but has no desire to incorporate Ukraine into the Russian Federation [although it may have to].
American conservatives and Christians need to start putting their Christianity above their nationalism and take an objective view of the foreign policy of our country. We will not be able to correct our disastrous policies unless we take an honest look at what we have done… Why does the United States military have over 750 bases in over 150 countries? Who gave the United States Department of State the right to rule the world? What is the real American interest in these foreign countries?
We must face the massive amount of destruction and human misery the US State Department has brought to the world since WWII. The policy of war, economic sanctions, regime changes, created conflicts, blockades, currency devaluation, and trade restrictions have resulted in the biggest humanitarian crisis since the end of WWII. Does the average American recognize how much we as a country are hated and despised around the world because of our meddling? “Saving the world for democracy?” Oh, please.
I am afraid that the average American mind—having lived under decades of propaganda extolling US foreign policy as the epitome of righteousness with some kind of holy calling—will be unable to escape their mental conditioning.
But there is good news. The Anglo-American-Zionist Empire is in a free-fall collapse… Empires fall because they are unable to sustain the costs of hegemony and they go broke. The Empire’s defeat in Afghanistan is the start of a larger pattern that will continue to the utmost edges of the Empire.
Russia had an empire once. It does not seek another one, but they would like to have security for their people from the evil, war-loving, sodomy-promoting, gender-confused, hedonistic, pro-abortion, pornified, anti-family, anti-Christ nations of the West.
To the West, leave Russia alone. Its recovery out of atheistic Bolshevism is the modern miracle of our time. Who could have seen a Christian Russia emerge from the rubble of communism, and all in just three decades? America, let Russia finish its recovery. Let her new destiny run its course — a destiny that will once again bring her to… one of the great Christian nations of the world.
As for post-Christian Europe and America, all that remains is judgment. I believe it to be irreversible. The West has squandered its Christian heritage and blessings. Its 100 years of unending wars, state-sponsored terror, and institutionalized decadence has reaped the whirlwind.
Like Russia, the West also has its coming destiny which must run its course. After its collapse, Europe and America must rebuild again. Maybe in God’s gracious providence a Christian Russia could be our model and aid us in the renewal of a new Western Christian civilization. [One that will mirror the kingdom of God. End of Article]
Yes, there’s a war going on, in more ways than one. Biblically speaking, who are these two parties?
We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. (I John 5:19)
From this verse, the two parties at war are those “of God” and those not of God that are, of course, wicked. It is one man against the whole world. And how many times has every true Christian, at least at one point of his/her life, felt alone in the world. And this would be strikingly true for those who believe in Christian Identity.
The mantra from the “president” is, “This is Putin’s war.” But who is really responsible for this war? The US State Department, NATO, CIA, MI6, Mossad, Soros (jew), Obama (jew), Biden, Nuland (jewess), McCain, Poroshenko (jew), Zelensky (jew), and likely a host of others.
President Putin had this to say, the week before last:
Overall, it appears that nearly everywhere, in many regions of the world where the United States brought its law and order, this created bloody, non-healing wounds and the curse of international terrorism and extremism. I have only mentioned the most glaring, but far from only, examples of disregard for international law.
This array includes promises not to expand NATO eastwards even by an inch. To reiterate: they have deceived us, or, to put it simply, they have played us. Sure, one often hears that politics is a dirty business. It could be, but it shouldn’t be as dirty as it is now, not to such an extent. This type of con-artist behavior is contrary not only to the principles of international relations, but also and above all, to the generally accepted norms of morality and ethics. Where is justice and truth here? Just lies and hypocrisy all around.
Incidentally, US politicians, political scientists and journalists write and say that a veritable “empire of lies” has been created inside the United States in recent years. It is hard to disagree with this – it is really so. But one should not be modest about it: the United States is still a great country and a system-forming power. All its satellites not only humbly and obediently say yes to and parrot it at the slightest pretext, but also imitate its behavior and enthusiastically accept the rules it is offering them. Therefore, one can say with good reason and confidence that the whole so-called Western bloc formed by the United States in its own image and likeness is, in its entirety, the very same “empire of lies.”
As for our country, after the disintegration of the USSR, given the entire unprecedented openness of the new, modern Russia, its readiness to work honestly with the United States and other Western partners, and its practically unilateral disarmament, they immediately tried to put the final squeeze on us, finish us off, and utterly destroy us. This is how it was in the 1990s and the early 2000s, when the so-called collective West was actively supporting separatism and gangs of mercenaries in southern Russia. What victims, what losses we had to sustain and what trials we had to go through at that time before we broke the back of international terrorism in the Caucasus! We remember this and will never forget.
Properly speaking, the attempts to use us in their own interests never ceased until quite recently: they sought to destroy our traditional values and force on us their false values that would erode us, our people from within, the attitudes they have been aggressively imposing on their countries, attitudes that are directly leading to degradation and degeneration, because they are contrary to human nature. This is not going to happen. No one has ever succeeded in doing this, nor will they succeed now.
Despite all that, in December 2021, we made yet another attempt to reach agreement with the United States and its allies on the principles of European security and NATO’s non-expansion. Our efforts were in vain. The United States has not changed its position. It does not believe it necessary to agree with Russia on a matter that is critical for us. The United States is pursuing its own objectives, while neglecting our interests.
Those who aspire to global dominance have publicly designated Russia as their enemy. They did so with impunity. (Speech of Feb. 24, 2022)
For all practical purposes, one man is standing against the whole world. Nearly everyone else is siding with Ukraine, both Left and Right. I certainly cannot side with the Left, and I have never followed the crowd. I could be wrong, but I’m taking the side of Russia, because: 1) history is on my side, 2) the truth is on my side, 3) the missing piece of Globalism changes the chessboard, 4) The United States of Globalism has started every war of the past century — why would this war be any different? It isn’t.
For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever; Amen.
