Bye Bibi. The clock is ticking

Twice elected as chairman of his party (1993 and 2005) and competitor in seven elections, the lame duck (caretaker) PM Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel is a striking figure.  He obviously likes being the strong man, posturing Israel as a democracy in an ocean of despots. His brash and bold juvenile moves were not enough after twelve his  years in power.  On the scale of lengthy reigns Bibi is a brash and bold baby whose goodbye will burn another hole in the Zionist dream.

There aren't enough terms in office for bad guys to get the job done.

His strength is that of a man who unleashes the Israeli military on a population of landlocked Gaza.  His vision of Israeli independence is either a joke or a nightmare of foreign domination.  Why else would he go to the United States for confirmation of the location of Israel’s capital?

Not even his alliance with Jewish parties espousing strict religious practices has made him a statesman or a roke model.  Netanyahu’s twelve years in the PM’s office is only a quarter Manasseh’s, the king of Israel with the most wicked record, who reigned for 55 years, beginnning when he was a mere twelve year old. 

But they did not listen, and Manasseh led them astray to do more evil than the nations had done whom the LORD destroyed before the people of Israel.

2 Kings 21:9

Netanyahu has faced four elections in two years and this shows that Israel, far from being a genuine democary, is just like Russia, India and Pakistan, holds elections to retain the label democratic and find support among the dedicated democracies of the west. The big red deagon, the People’s Republic of China does not even bother. 

Many in the west are afraid of saying the truth about Israel’s defiance of intarnational law.  It is as if Israel can do no wrong.  No state is getting better.  Israeli clocks stopped clicking a long time ago.  With the passage of time Israeli leaders get better at covering up their wickedness but keep straying further from the actual experiences that have been most beneficial.

No nice girl in there

(Expanded May 31, 2021)

Ephraim is another name for the northern part of Canaan, the kingdom of Israel. The Israelite kingdom was the first to feel God’s chastening rod by means of deportation. The southern kingdom, Judah, soon followed Israel into exile. Hosea, one of the late prophets, had a message about the “Israelite” kingdoms that is bolder than shocking. Whores go whoring, and Hosea saw it up close in his personal life and in the kingdoms. There is not a nice girl in the resume presented by the people who were in the room.

Prostitution in the Pentateuch was not a talking point about potential filth in the people’s psyche. God warned Israel about prostituting herself with the abominable practices of the Canaanite people, and he predicted that they would do so repeatedly.

Fleeting Goodness, Prophets and Priests

We can go only so far if we are satisfied with a wooly-eyed look at the popular story. God’s mercy does extend into eternity and we are aware that even a proverbial seven decades for us get our act together is more than adequate. We would be caught in a web of the spider who catches the unwary with a narrative of infinite cycles of apostasy and return (repentance). The popular line is that Israel-Judah has been through the cycle of estrangement, chastisement, and restoration. What is left can in no way be called a kingdom. When the judgments so often include death (as in the wilderness journeys, the enabling of enemy assaults and invasions, and hundreds of individuals executed by the government) there is not much to attach to infinite cycles of sin and restoration.

On one occasion Yahweh offered David options for punishment. David chose to be chastised by God rather than humans. This question – “what shall I do to you?” – is something different.


O Ephraim, what shall I do to you? O Judah, what shall I do to you? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goes away. Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and your judgments are as the light that goes forth.

Hosea 6:4

Here the prophet reports that Yahweh has a case to make about the value of his repeated corrective measures. It is obvious that there is no such thing as an endless cycle of spurn and return. One day the piper’s hand comes out, waiting for his pay. “What shall I do to you?” from Yahweh signals that the prescribed measures have not brought about the wellbeing everyone craved. The cutting down of the people by prophetic declarations and by His own decrees is the divine response to momentary goodness. Goodness in a prayer in the morning is like the dew. Goodness in a multitude of offerings is fleeting.

Prophets and priests transgress like humans

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

Hosea 6:6-7

Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood. (Hosea 6:8) And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: for they commit lewdness. (Hosea 6:9)

Hosea 6:8-9

Two places of opportunity were provided for the covenant to become at least expedient if not fulfilled: the sacrificial services and the medical practices of Gilead. There is supposed to a balm in Gilead (Jeremiah 8:22, 46:11, 51:8). Rather rather than burnt offerings there might have been mercy. We know who made the decisions about the worshipper’s expenses for sacrifices. Every sin by a priest (reported) required a bull. A ram might do, or two doves and two pigeons might suffice for a person with less means (Lev. 5:7). We can see how the practice of selling animals as a part of the temple service was vulnerable to filthy captialism.

Prostitition sinks the ship

Horrific things were happening elsewhere too. In Judah the effect of a broken down marriage, due to partner defilement, was in full view in New Testament times.

I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

Hosea 6:10

There is a tacit resignation to Judah’s stiffneck after end of the exile. When the Persian returned the captivity (reversed the exile) one might have expected the Gentile uncleanness and desire for foreign gods would have ended. It is not surprising that the resistance to God and the sleeping around continued in New Testament times, even as the temple compound became an even more colossal monumental testimony to the people keeping up the marriage appearance. The king was Herod. The king was Caesar.

Also, O Judah, he hath set a harvest for you, when I returned the captivity of my people.

Hosea 6:11

What happens to a defiled wife or even a betrothed partner is assigned in the Law. It is highly unlikely that a couple will want to stay together in such situations. Even though a familiarity with God’s ways and words reveals that we should only say “never” when He says “never” fixing broken things a relationship with a defiled spouse is not happening without a crisis.

“If a man divorces his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man’s wife, will he return to her? Would not that land be greatly polluted? You have played the whore with many lovers; and would you return to me? declares the LORD.

Jeremiah 3:1

Supporting the state of Israel to defy the solution of the Palestinian Problem only goes the affirm that finding a nice girl in the ancient picture of Israel, Judah, or any of the nations is unlikely and improbable. One would have to zoom in in a few seconds of antiquity to find the nice girl. We still believe that where we see shut doors God sees open doors. Where the law depends on prisions the Son of Man imposes liberty. In the modern picture of Judah and the nations it is equally unlikely and improbable to find a nice girl.

Egypt negotiates ceasefire

Why didn’t France, Germany, the UK or one of the Gulf states. Why didn’t the PRC have a role? We should not underestimate the tribal layers that matter in the Middle East. Just as Israelis may say “Palestinians and terrorists do not understand or respect our Jewishness” anyone in the Levant may say that westerners do not get his culture or social priorities. This means that the influence of western powers – after the UK and the US have wasted their function as honest broker – will depend upon more forceful efforts to resolve the Palestinian Problem.

More from the dark web

Some associations are abominable and trashy and that discovery is not always the trigger for fight or flight. Even when they produce what appears to be intelligible info, commenting is not automatic. In fact it is better to let these groups and their trashy output meet their destiny. On a personal level, it is my responsibility to allow my ears and eyes to hear and see, and to have the sycophantic fringe who hide behind fraudulent bottom-feeding persons and their prostitution rings (capitalist ventures) exposed to the world.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’

Darkness in the Judeo-Christian vaccum

Baiting contributors with insults

Hey [name],

Miss you guys too. I just kinda needed to be amongst rational arguments for a while man.😅…

Let’s list the things you talked about and have you defend them. I wouldn’t mind hearing from uvw and xyz either.

Bullying members with unknown economic successes

… To be honest there is so much nonsense in what you posted here, it makes it difficult for me to tell whether you are actually living in the same world I am.

1) Biden’s ratings are off the chart where? With whom? Whose ratings of Biden is off the charts. Please be careful when you’re responding to me cause my specialty is in backing up my statements; not merely making them.

2) What Republicans outside of the RINO establishment Republicans are giving thumbs up to Biden? Name ONE!

3) He’s lifted the poor out of poverty. Now this one had me laughing real hard, paradoxically because I think this statement is both funny and upsetting at the same time…

…Biden’s first week in Office saw thousands of people laid off because of his stupid anti fossil fuels executive order. What do you mean by lifted people out of poverty?…

…List the areas that are out of poverty as a result of Biden. I will be waiting. Andrew will send your findings back to me.

Jamaica is now an example of safety?

3) He will get something done on gun laws. You are celebrating this because you don’t know much about history to be perfectly honest with you, nor do you realize how much you’ve been subverted…

…There is a country right now that is the perfect example of a country with stringent gun laws. Go to Jamaica and ask the citizens how much safer the laws made them…

A nation in constant violent revolution?

…Why are Biden and leftists so insistent on “gun control”? Do you know why? It takes power from the people and lands it in the hands of the Government…

… I mean, you should at least know that since you guys spent the better part of the half year I was in the group calling Trump a tyrant…

…The founding fathers left in the Constitution the right of the Citizens of America to BEAR ARMS and FORM MILITIAS…

Why? This was not only a measure to give Americans to protect themselves against criminal elements in society; it’s main objective is to consolidate power in the hands of the people, NOT the Government…

…Theodore Roosevelt once said ” When the people fear the Government, that’s tyranny, but when the Government fear the people, that’s LIBERTY”…

Violence: a tool for the desperate and the desperately wicked

…In order for that Constitutional provision to be changed, ⅔ of the Senate and the Congress must pass it, and then it must be ratified by 39 States out of the 50…

…The tyrant President that you call a genius is trying to do that using executive action.

GOP support for the bigot of Mar a Lago shows its bankruptcy

Once people heard the tropes about immigrants and tax breaks for the rich they held their noses and voted for a crooked and inhumane reality television entity.

Continuing the dark web feed…

45 was doing nothing wrong?

…You’ve lived in Western liberty too long so like most of these uninformed North Americans, you take it for granted. You think freedom is the default position. You are about to find out sister.

This is why I left the group. I came to realize that it was Ideological Subversion that did its number on you and Onas…
.You’ve grown to hate the principles that are guaranteeing your freedoms right now. You should go back and listen to ex KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov…

…It’s not because Trump was doing anything wrong. It’s just simply because you hated the guy. That is why you all made the fraud that happened last election OK because once it gets Trump out of Office, it’s totally fine.

Four years of watching Fox TV and inciting America’s fascists are not “being in office”

Let me put a little nugget on top of this for to explain about your “genius” President.

Trump was in Office for 4 years. His administration saw peace deals being signed in the Middle East between Israel and Arab nations…

…This was most certainly going to put the pressure necessary on Iran to stop their nuclear program.

Denying the facts of the 2020 election and US national and international misdeeds since 1776

What do we have now? After they stole the election, and rammed in this senile old fool, Hamas decided to attack Israel. Over 5,000 missiles in the space of one hour fired on them…

…Now, your genius President is not even 4 months old in the Office yet, and these are the kinds of things going on while he is in Office…

…I put it to you that Biden won’t need 4 years to wreck America. I’m giving him one, the most two.

China looked in his face and told him America has no moral authority to tell them anything about democracy. They also told him to his face that America is in terminal decline.

more bullying

[Name], believe, I have not begun to list Biden’s disasters for the past three months, but I can, if you dare me. This guy’s first 100 days may be the worst I’ve ever seen in history.

I’ll be waiting for you response to my points with facts; NOT your feelings. If you send me more of your feelings I won’t respond. SEND ME FACTS ONLY PLEASE!!! NOTHING ELSE!!!!

In the meantime I’m going to send you stuff that puts to naught all these erroneous things you just said.

Peace

Does this slice of a social media group read like intellect at work? Does it read like discussions of Christian theology and responsibility? You be the judge. Stay tuned for more from the dark web

Ontario’s furious Ford

Mr. Ford, failing to take a hard line to protect Ontarians, and ordering unadvised extreme actions he has had to walk back, keeps blaming the Federal government for problems at the Canada-US border. Truth be told, our Premier has not kept the vulnerable safe, has not convinced Ontarians to follow the science or even to follow stay-home guidance within municipal boundaries. “What gives?”, indeed. We are not that blind. We see the fear of irresponsible and vocal commercial actors. We feel the outbreaks at factories and the numewrous attempts by partygoers to ignore the pandemic. We hear the ongoing threats of antivax protests, and the imaginary dust-up between provincial and federal governments about vaccine supply and the international border is a fury that may continue until someone catches the Premier voicing his other views.

Premier Ford, losing the grip on the hearts of Ontario’s residents, needs to keep his political swipes out of the government info update packages. This is one Ontarian who can see in black and white as well as vivid colour. Should we blame our Premier for Ontario’s troubles?

There is a dangerous line between thriving businesses and a healthy population. Its name is death-by-covid19.

I remember Ford’s “Ontario: open for business”

Who on earth can believe that (1) the government (any government!) is following all the expert advice and (2) Ontario’s residents are doing a great job at fighting the pandemic? The two cannot be true as the infections and death continue to rise and fall. “Open for business” seems to be a conservative priority in Asia, Europe and North America. I will remember the value placed on human lives, and for now reception of conservative idea, even the revolutionary ones, is off.

America: “there was nothing here” is froggy rubbish

Committed Catholic, former GOP Senator, and CNN contributor, Rick Santorum, falsifies American history with his statement that “when we came” there was nothing here, and he displayed his rank ignorance with his opinion that not much native culture is in First Nations’ culture. Black people cannot relate to that wise junk. When we came we saw First Nations, Jews, and a host of residents, all immigrants, under the malicious boot of people we suppose were Christians. We do relate to a long overdue repentance and some action from America’s foolish virgins. The only fact in Santorum’s blurb is that when Europeans came to Turtle Island they found no people – water in the prediction of Revelation 13 – with whome they could carry on their froggy traditions. There were no people that they could turn into a mindless mob.

The Marine Beast – European kingdoms in the grip of the devil

And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads.

Revelation 13:1

The Marine Beast – European kingdoms in the grip of the devil

Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.

Revelation 13:11

The two entities worship the devil. One has kingdoms (that includes royal families). America is an avowed anti-monarchy nation. Its two horns are not kingdoms.

Heaven addresses “earth” and “sea” not land and water

Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” Revelation 12:12

The duplicitious and deadly froggy deal

All cultures that depend on mobs, whether we find them in places of worship, in service agencies, or in the official squads of governement operatives, are duplicitous and deadly. Three demons like frogs, needing water and thriving on land or in water, are the identifiers of this alliance.

And I saw, coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs. Revelation 16:13 For they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.

Revelation 16:14

Santorum is not a guide to any place good. I would not be surprised to find that he supports the January 6, 2021 insurrection and attempt to overturn the election of President Joe Biden. We are not sure that he can continue as an expert for a trusted provider like CNN. His froggy voice matters little to me and has for a long time.

Think about the spread

CBCNEWS Network shines a light on unsung heroes like factory workers and taxicab drivers. The medical opinion is that reducing the exposure of people to covid19 who do not want to contract or spread is not a postal code operation. There is a high price to pay if we do not act more responsively to the severest threats, such as those person who are the only means of keeping the community functional. The potential for a phenomenally high number of contacts a taxidiver has in a single day makes his workplace a war zone. That is my opinon, but the covid19 war zone is a reality for the driver. The people who move us around for a living deserve to have their plight addressed. They and their families deserve to be a priority for vaccination. #thankugod4taxicabdrivers

The Ford government needs to match its talking points – the best economic engine, the greatest medical scientists, absolute commitment to following the science of coronavirus – to a daily improvement to the safety of all Ontarians. Governments all across Canada think they are operating behind a curtain of “the right words in public”. Factories and a host of congregant entities, including private parties have just come under police scrutiny. Children are showing up with their families in the hospital.

A large part of government reluctance to govern comes from the perception that Canadians will not stand for the curtailment of their right to assemble and the right to be free from being accosted by police services. Law is not so important as personal freedom. The primacy of personal freedom ends in an ever-increasing spread of covid19 (and its variants), death counts, and mishandling of vaccine supplies. The devastating outbreaks in nursing homes shows that talk is cheap, and slow pace of getting vaccine into arms of people who matter most exposes a plan we can only guess is connected to greed, apathy, and discrimination. Remember “kids need to be in school” and “we need to open up the bars and keep essential services running”? It came from every politician in Canada ansd the United States. Who can forget? Home must be a deadly place. Washing hands and observing social distance are simply too much to ask when saving lives is within our reach. Where we are now proves that every resident needs to think about the spread and be involved in reducing it.

Honour to the parent!

Saturday April 17th 2021 is a day to remember because I am hearing that police forces are lining up to refuse to enforce government orders, in what seems to be a move to be in solidarity with people who, we assume, are conscientious and zealous for human rights and Canadian Charter rights. These are the same police services who have savagely and heartlessly documented the lives of Canada’s First Nations, Black and brown peoples, and people using cannabis, without any sign of respect for humanity. I can hardly wait to see what the legal tempest will be, because this segway by the police services will bring into question the universal call for honouring the parent.

The context of science and passion

All across the world the examples of steady progress in the fight againt coronavirus seems to come where populations have followed the simple actions recommended by medical professionals: mask up, protect your 2-metre bubble, stay home, and wash your hands. Ontarians have been persistently flattered from the beginning of the pandemic by the Premier about how great and cooperative we have been. A boldface lie. Ontarians have been carrying on their lives as if nothing needs to change. That, in my opinion, explains why we are where we are in April 2021. Ontarios gather in large numbers in protest and in parties, they cross municipal boundaries to shop, they infect their children and want them to continue in in-person education, they jockey to be designated as essential services or exempt from anti-covid19 measures, and they chafe against restrictions to religious gatherings. In general western nations have infected the world with “protest over protect”. Ontario cannot pass the buck on to the lack of vaccine supply (from the Federal government).

I only hope that the bluster of ignorance, the rejection of science and workable wisdom, the passing of the blame buck, and the readiness to play the role of litigant-hero, so rampant in the United States and the United Kingdom stays in those countries and dies quickly. Police services trying to appear humane and conscientious without doing what they are solemnly authorized to is a moment like New Year’s Day, two-headed, challenging a look forward or a look backward. It is a moment that will have to be explained in the light of the command for honour to the parent.
