Brokeback Finland

By Mahons On July 16th, 2018 at 1:19 pm

You almost wonder what more Trump could do more to please Putin if Putin actually was blackmailing him. Cause if Putin isn't blackmailing him them Trump is just giving it away for free. Their Renfield-Dracula bromance may be the weirdest relationship in American diplomatic history.

Trump might very well have antagonized and demeaned allies, praised dictators and undermined Western institutions anyway. He'd probably attack the press, former Administrations and political opponents. But where is his two faced inconsistencey with Putin? After all he displays it with everything else. It is damned odd.

Russian attempts to influence the American election by now are only disputed by liars and fools (Trump appeals to both). Whether there was collusion by anyone in the Trump campaign remains to be seen (his son's failed attempt notwithstanding).

Trump's victory was by the rules, but technical as opposed to a mandate which gnaws at his insecurity. That insecurity and vanity may be why he resists acknowledging the Russian efforts. But it doesnt really explain his denouncing the investigation. If his campaign wasnt involved you almost have to feel bad for the Russians. They need not have gone to the time and expense, since the chaos they wanted was provided gratis.

No doubt Trump will declare the summit a great success. Strike that, the greatest success. And Putin can go from having the World Cup to having the World Dupe.

NO CLASS

By Pete Moore On July 15th, 2018 at 9:21 pm

IT’S been a great World Cup. It’s been enjoyed by fans all round the world. It’s had great football, great goals and – most enjoyably – great upsets. The one downer has been the lack of European fans, put off by dire and baseless propaganda from governments about how terrible it will be for visitors. It seems that almost everyone who went there had a great time.

And the George Soros’ demented feminist brigade had to go and put themselves in the middle of the Final. Pussy Riot has ‘fessed up to the pitch invasion. Some people simply have no class. They simply cannot bear to be a bystander at someone’s else’s fun. They’re probably getting a kicking somewhere in Moscow right now. They ought to be thankful that Croatia’s Dejan Lovran isn’t leading it.

Is Donald Trump the Anti-Christ?

A guest post from Jude

 

A question on the nerves of many believers and indeed the curious. End timers have been trying to identify the man of sin, the lawless one ever since that man was written about by the author St.Paul 2000 yrs ago The claim centres on a passage in the 2nd letter to the Church as Thessaloniki Quote:

“2 Thessalonians 2 New International Version (NIV)

The Man of Lawlessness

1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing.They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

Stand Firm

13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits[b] to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings[c] we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.

16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved usand by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

Apart from the section of the letter ending with the utmost grace and favour that only Paul could write ,the bit that is worth concentrating on is this segment I submit:

“For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

It seems to me that is where you start to build your case: are we in a time where there is more or less “delighting in wickedness” than previous generations? Evidence?
Does the concept of “fake news” represent a first strike ,demonstrating the beginnings of “a powerful deception”. After reading the quoted article below how persuaded are you that we have found our “man of sin” , our lawless one?

Case for the prosecution

Exhibit 1
An article on hypertexts.com a site which covers a vast range of material, mostly literature and essays but nevertheless manges not to be dry academia.
http://www.thehypertexts.com/main.htm
within that website is the article entitled
Is Donald Trump the Anti-Christ?
http://www.thehypertexts.com/Donald%20Trump%20Antichrist%20666.htm

Ladies and Gentlemen and members of the ATW Jury it is for you to weigh the evidence carefully and decide has the case been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and return your verdicts 🙂

Peace to you all , its Sunday already in New Zealand

STRANGE DAYS

By Pete Moore On July 14th, 2018 at 7:52 pm

To Winchester today, where I sat down for a while and enjoyed the view.

A couple of small groups came by in medieval garb. I assumed that they were part of a re-enactment society. I heard British, American and European accents. Winchester Cathedral is just around the corner. Maybe something was going on there but I didn’t notice. Then as they moved off they started chanting. All the way down the lane they were at it Gregorian style. It was very nice and added to the atmosphere, but a little odd too.

Winchester is on a couple of pilgrim routes, but you don’t want to be dressed like that all day if you’re out walking. Whatever, I have no idea.

IS THE BBC ON STRIKE?

By Pete Moore On July 14th, 2018 at 6:47 pm

How strange. The BBC, along with the world’s networks, were in love with demonstrations yesterday. It was blanket coverage of every last incoherent banner in all corners of the kingdom. Strangely, they’ve missed this beautiful, patriotic demonstration in London today, in support of Tommy Robinson.

Not a word, not one peep. Not even on the BBC London News page. It’s as if the BBC has a political agenda.

YOU’D NEED A HEART OF STONE NOT TO LAUGH

Terrorist godfather Gerry Adams is fuming – fewmin’ – that someone lobbed a firework at his house.

Former Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams has called on those who attacked his home to meet him.

Mr Adams asked those responsible to have the “gumption and guts” to meet him and explain their actions.

Sinn Féin activist Bobby Storey’s house was also attacked and police say the devices thrown at both homes were believed to be “large industrial or commercial fireworks”.

Such devices have the capacity to cause serious injury and damage to property.

The attacks took place in west Belfast on Friday night.

He’s led an evil life. It’s one filled with blood, murder and repeated excuses for the most wicked acts. The last person on this planet with any moral right to demand an explanation is Gerry Adams.

Feeling Sad?

These videos never fail to deliver tears of laughter and joy.  Watch PBS realize…slowly….that Donald Trump has won the Presidency.

Good ole wisdom

I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

And the Circus Continues

By Patrick Van Roy On July 13th, 2018 at 8:21 pm

 

From the post below you can see the spectacle. Today behind closed doors Hot Lips Lisa Page mistress of Frank Burns Strzok is testifying. She Finally decided to show up. Must be nice to feel above the law and just refuse a subpoena. I wonder how long you or I would get away with that, but members of our government just ignore them like a nuisance.

That is the bullshit that is truly keeping all this alive. All the FBI/DOJ/DNC/Clinton pain would be done  if they just turned over what has been subpoenaed. No one would probably still go to Jail but the FBI/DOJ would be cleansed of political malcontents and life could proceed…. but NO they REFUSE and that sticks in the people’s craw both Left and right.

They forget Trump carried a hell of a lot of Dem votes outside of the cities. He could have never won Pa or Ohio without them.

All this is going to continue until we get two things Mueller’s report and the FISA warrant info. Until BOTH are complete this farce will continue.
