The Importance of Fellowship…


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree house on November 22, 2020 by sundance

It’s hard to believe the image below was originally shared on these pages and discussed almost a decade ago.  There was just something about the shift in messaging from the totalitarian left that sounded an internal alarm amid those who were focused on the open dismissal of liberty and freedom that resounded from the drumbeat of the Obama era:

“Fundamental change” was a looming catch phrase many just seemed to ignore.  And here we are… divided by a network of seemingly intoxicating systems; many purposefully driven by the modern dynamic of social media, steering a tribal outcome we are only now just beginning to fathom. Ultimately what the collective weight of progressiveness is putting upon us is isolation.  There are so many historic references to this strategic sentiment it is disconcerting to review with hindsight.

I am not a sage, but we saw this coming…. we just didn’t know the entry vector that would be used to accomplish the final stages of diminished freedom and individual liberty.  As we look at the current COVID-19 mandates and dictates one cannot easily dismiss the weaponized use of a virus to attain division under the guise of “social distancing.”

When we initially asked the question: “where would you choose to live“, we had no idea a virus would be purposeful to enhance the objectives of social engineering, isolation and ultimately, painfully, oppression.  Oblivious to the grand design, we allowed a seemingly disparate network of big tech companies to control communication.  The COVID aspect now generates in the physical world exactly the same distance created in the digital world.

In/around July it was obvious in my travels we were on the precipice of a disconnect from human interaction that would numb our psyche to what ultimately matters, fellowship.

Not only are various governmental agencies forcing the separation of people from their community networks, we are also seeing faith-based organizations, churches, buying into the fear.  Even in areas where churches are not forcibly shut down, many are seeing a structural shift where some faith leaders are willingly ostracizing their community under the guise of various COVID alarms.  This is not good…. not good at all.

Fellowship is the essential ingredient to a purposeful life.  How and why we interact with each-other is how and why we recharge our core humanity.  To see faith leaders willing to separate from the function of fellowship is alarming.  However, as individuals we must not allow this foreboding sense to become the normal expectation.

Throughout history large armies have been defeated through the process of division.  It is not a leap to see the same strategic objectives being deployed against social assemblies including congregations.  It is puzzling how leadership cannot see the danger in social and spiritual distance when the bond of fellowship is needed more than ever.

Each of us has a different connection to our community. Each of us has a different level of internal strength… such is the nature of living.  However, the distance between people is manifestly not a good outcome when combined with the lack of food for the soul.

The influence of social media is already troublesome, physically distancing from human engagement only worsens the impact.  There is no digital replacement for the true fellowship of humanity on a personal level.

Ultimately it is the currency of human connection that is the true value in our lives.

We have each felt how our positive influence upon the lives of others nourishes our own sense of purpose and fulfillment… Do not lose that.  Do not think you can compensate for that through other arbitrary measures; you cannot.

With local, state and now federal leaders moving beyond the workplace distance; and beyond the community distance; and beyond the church distance; and now entering your home to tell you the importance of separating yourself from your family during a time of year when that very assembly is the core of your support network… you must evaluate these arbitrary decrees very deliberately.

Evaluate very closely what you are willing to give up.  Perhaps we are in this position today because we didn’t sit still enough and contemplate the real priorities in our lives.

Our liberty is inherent.

Our freedom is inherent.

The removal of both requires consent.

I choose not to disconnect.

I choose purpose.

I choose my own humanity.

Love to all,

~ Sundance

[…] I asked a gentleman for the location to a convenience store to purchase some mints to chew throughout the day.  I was directed to a specific store.

When I made my purchase, the mask on the other side of the counter was as sad as many that day, but I felt compelled to ask how she was doing.  The typical “been better” was the return.  However, as I started to walk away… I turned back: “what’s wrong”?

For the next few minutes I listened as I met a mom of four kids who was 15 days from a COVID-based eviction.  There was really no-one to blame; and worse, for her no-where to turn.  She was looking for housing grants to avoid the most painful decision in her short 30-year-life.

You see, there was a reason why I went into that store that afternoon, at least that’s what I told her; and there was a reason why she was there.  In part with your support, and after putting all other tasks in the appropriately unimportant place they deserved, WE (yes, you and me) together found a solution and provided the resources she needed.   Starfish dude strikes again… this time with His help and your help.

It would have been very easy to walk out and accept that simple: “been better”. Heck, I think of all the times I have done that before…. but not this time.  This time something nagged about it…. and so I turned around and found tears, fellowship – and mints.

The next day another stroll, a little lost, and a veteran on the street… I can’t tell you his story because that’s for another day… but it is just as important and just as profound.  As I walked away from him many minutes later he yelled at me: “HEY DUDE”.  I turned my unmasked smile back in his direction only to have him say: “we need more people like you in charge”…  Thumbs up, and I continued my travels.

Which is really the point of writing all this.  Our nation needs more people like you, right now.  Don’t wait… engage life, get optimistic however you need to do it. Then let that part of you shine right now… This is how we fight.  Hold up that flag; give the starter smile… rally to the standard you create and spread fellowship again.

God knows we need it.

Darren Nesbit – Stick Your New World Order Up Your Arse We Are The 99

A Technical Study in the Relationships of Solar Flux, Water, Carbon Dioxide and Global Temperatures, October 2020 Data


Carbon Dioxide CO2 is not making “ANY” dangerous changes to the global temperature!

From the attached report on climate change for October 2020 Data we have the two charts showing how much the global temperature has actually gone up since we started to measure CO2 in the atmosphere? To show this graphically Chart 8 was constructed by plotting CO2 as a percent increase from when it was first measured in 1958, the Black plot, the scale is on the left and it shows CO2 going up a bit over 31.0% from 1958 to October of 2020. That is a very large change as anyone would have to agree.  Now how about temperature, well when we look at the percentage change in temperature from 1958, using Kelvin (which does measure the change in heat), we find that the changes in global temperature (heat) are almost un-measurable. The scale on the right side had to be expanded 10 times (the range is 40 % on the left and 4% on the right) to be able to see the plot in the same chart in any detail. The red plot, starting in 1958, shows that the thermal energy in the earth’s atmosphere increased by .40%; while CO2 has increased by 31.0% which is 78 times that of the increase in temperature. So is there really a meaningful link between them that would give as a major problem? The numbers tell us no there isn’t.

The next chart is Chart 8a which is the same as Chart 8 except for the scales which are the same for both CO2 and Temperature. As you see the increase in energy, heat, is not visually observably in this chart hence the need for the previous chart 8 to show the minuscule increase in thermal energy shown by NASA in relationship to the change in CO2. Based to these trends, determined by excel not me, in 2028 CO2 will be 428 ppm and temperatures will be 15.0o Celsius and in 2038 CO2 will be 458 ppm and temperatures will be 15.6O Celsius. This is what the data shows no matter what the reasons are, so I have no idea how the IPCC gets to predict that the world will end in ten or even twenty years.

The full 40 page report explains how these charts were developed and why using NASA and NOAA data that are used without change to prove that The New Green Deal is not required and any attempt to complete that plan will be a worldwide disaster.

San Francisco Going Just Insane


Armstrong Economics Blog/The Hunt for Taxes Re-Posted Nov 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

First, San Francisco just banned Natural Gas in any new buildings, requiring them to rely on the electric grid instead. The city’s board of supervisors unanimously approved the ordinance which will apply to more than 54,000 homes and 32 million square feet of business space that was approved for construction. They do not have the power generation to support that and a power grid failure means even the food people have will go bad without electricity and they cannot even cook on a stove or microwave. What do you do if power is out for weeks?

Secondly, San Franciso passed the CEO tax. The tax applies to companies in which the highest-paid managerial employee earns 100 times more than the median worker in San Francisco. Businesses above this 100 to 1 threshold pay an extra surcharge on their gross receipts. The greater the inequality, the bigger the tax. Companies with an executive earning 200 times the median worker in the city incur a 0.2% tax, all the way up to 0.6%. For large firms (businesses with more than $1 billion in gross receipts and 1,000 employees nationwide), the tax is applied to up to 2.4% of its city payroll expenses. The bill is expected to bring in between $60 million and $140 million per year, about 0.4% to 1% of the city’s annual budget.

This tax is really problematic. It is a tax on the company rather than the executive. But generally, these large pay-outs are stock options – not cash. So if the stock doubles in price, the CEO would make a theoretical windfall and the company would pay a surcharge which could impact the shareholders and could even reduce the workforce.

Is Climate Change Caused Only by the Sun?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Oct 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Do you think the entire climate change is caused by the sun?

KS

ANSWER: No. Nothing can be reduced to a single cause and effect. There is a 300-year cycle in the energy output of the sun. But solar minimum changes the output to greater intensity of gamma rays. This may be responsible for the increase in volcanic activity during solar minimum. What is clear is that it has been the volcanic activity that has caused the major declines in temperature, which have resulted in famines and drastic weather changes such as the year without a summer.

This certainly cannot be contributed to simply CO2 any more than it can be simply reduced to the sun only. There is far more complexity involved, which we really need to explore. This agenda to crush the economy and rebuilt it green is not supported by the evidence.

Media Weaponize COVID Fear to Cover Biden Disappearance – President Trump Impromptu Presser – Allentown, Pennsylvania…


Media Weaponize COVID Fear to Cover Biden Disappearance – President Trump Impromptu Presser – Allentown, Pennsylvania…

Posted on October 26, 2020 by sundance

With reports of Joe Biden cancelling all in-person campaign events, the Club members are trying to carry their Potemkin candidate across the finish line.

Everyone is now aware Joe Biden is a cover for the real person the puppeteers want in the oval office, Kamala Harris.

That said, the DNC needs to weaponize the COVID-19 threat as a cover story to explain the lack of campaigning by the Democrat candidates; hence, the media hype of the coronavirus is back this week in full swing.

COVID fear is a narrative cover-story to hide the lack of support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Part of that cover-story is needed because the MAGA community was showing up in overwhelming numbers at Biden-Harris events, and the false illusion of support -propping up the Potemkin village- was being exposed.  All of these machinations are part of a remarkable attempt at psychological operations in this election.

Thus the questioning of President Trump this morning.  WATCH:

Germany’s Anti-Greta: Naomi Seibt


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Oct 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

I find it fascinating how a 19-year-old can do the research that climate change is natural and that whatever impact humans have is negligible. All we have to do is go to the NASA site and look at the current composition of the atmosphere. CO2 is about 0.04%. I just do not see how we need to change the world to save the planet, but like the virus, this too seems to be a sham. It is the third attempt to impose Marxism on the entire world.

Al Gore – Really the true Clown


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Oct 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Just an observation after reading the blog on how scientific illiterate Al Gore is. I actually had to LOL when I noticed that on the cover of his book “An Inconvenient Truth” the hurricane image arising from the smokestack was backwards and obviously none of his genius scientific advisors knew enough to notice. A hurricane is an intense low pressure system and spins counterclockwise, they depict it spinning clockwise!

EJW

REPLY: You are correct. Gore was bad at math and science in school. I suppose he slept through the class that explained typhoons or hurricanes move differently in different parts of the world. They will always spin counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere, and spin in the opposite direction in the Southern Hemisphere. No wonder the judge ruled it was just opinion and not science.Categories:Climate

Klaus Schwab – The New Karl Marx Destined to Kill Hundreds of Millions


Armstrong Economics Blog/Socialist Re-Posted on Oct 16, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The New York Times cheered Stalin and constantly reported that this was the way to the future. They are supporting once again this move to a Marxist Utopia. The New York Times hid the truth about Stalin. His great economic miracle was achieved by taking all the food from Ukraine to pretend Communism was working in Russia causing over 7 million to starve to death.

So many people are really just ignorant. They think this election is about picking Trump v Biden. They are clueless because mainstream media is once again supporting this agenda of the Great Reset. Listen carefully to Schwab’s words. He expressly states “equality” which is the dream which began with Karl Marx.

The New York Times cheered Stalin and constantly reported that this was the way to the future. They are supporting once again this move to a Marxist Utopia. The New York Times hid the truth about Stalin. His great economic miracle was achieved by taking all the food from Ukraine to pretend Communism was working in Russia causing over 7 million to starve to death.

I strongly recommend you watch the movie Mr. Jones. This exposes the TRUE STORY of how the New York Times tried to support Communism in the United States back then, with their top journalist, Walter Duranty (1884-1957), who was their main man in Moscow. The New York Times promoted him to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for that reporting on how Communism was Utopia and our future. When Gareth Jones (1905-1935) in March 1933 reported this was all a lie, the truth finally began to appear.

It took the New York Times until 1990 to admit to that their reporting which covered up the truth about Stalin and the massive starvation in an effort, like Schwab, once again selling “equality” as our salvation. The New York Times covered up the more than 7 million people who died of starvation in the Ukraine famine. The New York Times wrote that their reporting on the Russian Revolution constituted “some of the worst reporting to appear in this newspaper.” They never revoked his Pultizer Prize for writing fake news about Stalin.

It was the New York Times’ Walter Duranty who also met with Franklin Roosevelt and supported the move toward Marxism in the United States as the “New Deal”. It was the New York Times’ Duranty that helped install drastic progressiveness in taxation in the United States following Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. This is precisely what Schwab is proposing with “equality” in league with his buddy, Thomas Piketty.

Anyone who thinks this is an election of just Democrat v Republican is a fool. There is a serious agenda behind these lockdowns and they have been intended to prevent commuters and to crush the world economy. Even Australia rules out international travel at least until the end of 2021. All of this is to reduce air travel to reduce CO2. This is the real agenda that Schwab has been selling behind the curtain. He will probably go down in history surpassing the death toll of Karl Marx. His lockdowns have already reduced the food supply and this raises the prospect of famine coming into play by 2022.

Sky News Calls Out Schwab & his DAVOS The Great Reset plan!

I find it very interesting how these billionaires seem to want to prevent anyone else from making a lot of money, for perhaps they would do as they are doing and fund the opposition. It is just amazing how divided the world is becoming and that is the element needed for revolutions.

The film the Forum made its debut in New York City. I was invited there. My criticism back in 2019 was that I thought the film was supposed to be about Schwab’s accomplishment in creating the World Economic Forum when I found it was focused on climate change and Greta.
