Penalty: False START

Yes, we have heard of arms control as far back as we can remember. It was of course, the arms that kept the peace. (But, for “liberals”: it was their “reaching out” that averted war.  And it was but a “myth” that the Soviet Union was our enemy!)  The geopolitical and ideological rivalry between the USA and the USSR fueled the Cold War, not the arms themselves!  All the endless hours and careers dedicated to reducing the number of nukes was and is a waste. As long as each power had even only 1/4 of their inventory, they and we could have destroyed each other and much of Europe and Asia in the process. So to what end would it have been, to realize the wildest dreams of the would-be Bomb-Banners? To have the USA and USSR destroy 75% of their nukes would have been beyond what even the most optimistic amongst them would have dared dream. Yet, the same threat of devastating nuclear war would have remained.
Libs being libs, love to lie, and paint themselves as moralists.
But as the Libs love to proclaim and to crow : “We are in a Post-American Era“. Or, as the smarty pants at CFR, and Atlantic Monthly love to pronounce, we are in “a multi-polar world”. Therefore to what end do we negotiate bi-lateral treaties with Russia?
The USSR no longer is the “existential” threat to the United States of America. To “privilege” the Russian-American relationship as if it were still the days of NATO and Warsaw Pact tanks facing each other at Checkpoint Charlie is ludicrous.
Why do we still have US forces in Germany? Shouldn’t Europe be able to balance Russia, as historically was the case. With the continental sized USSR fully weaponized in the heart of Europe and pissed after WW II  was one thing. The power of the USA was needed to help Europe balance the USSR.
But, there is no more USSR. Let us allow Germany which traditionally manned the eastern approaches to Europe again to do so. Germany and France (with its own nuclear force) make up the heart of the EU. Modern History has revolved around Franco-German rivalry and the various alliances each other forged. United, they surely ought to be able to defend Europe from Russia.
The Baltic and The Black Seas are fairly distant from the North Atlantic! Should the USA in its NATO commitment to be guaranteeing such distant places as Georgia, and Estonia? Why should we be part of the Bear Baiting of erecting missile defenses in Poland and Czech Republic? Would we go to war with Russia over Georgia and the southern Ossetia regions seeking independence? I hope we have sane enough people in charge who would say “NO”.
WE NEED a NEW FRESH FOREIGN POLICY. It must reflect the multipolar world which, alas, is now the case. Alas, because of the Lib’s hatred of America as an Independent sovereign Republic, we have been betrayed and cut off at the knees. The Globalists know that America, strong, independent and free, will never melt into the stew of the NWO.
So, they seek to eat away our strength (and lead the world and ourselves to question our morality). They seek to tie us like Gulliver with strings of treaties and agreements. And knowing that educated, armed, brave American citizens will never allow our nation to be fed into the NWO, they seek to keep us ignorant, disarmed and frightened. They have succeeded to the degree that Americans are trained to apologize for having briefly been The Sole Superpower. We must now “recognize that our time is past, and that we shall have to pass the torch to China”. This of course is bullshit.
BUT: that is an entire screed to itself. Point now is that they have succeeded. We no longer have the moral clarity, institutional bravery, nor economic might to act like a superpower. That being the case, we must devise balance of power relationships, something we have no past history of doing. We had been insular between our oceans, until we burst their bounds  and ruled the waves. We have no experience in forming alliances and maintaining balance of power.
Unlike Britain we do not have a half a millennium experience in managing a multipolar world. But we must learn quickly. OR the “multipolar world” will be seen historically as the blink of time between the emasculation of America and the rise of the New World Order.  America was the result of an extremely long chain of events.  Some of the links were seemingly mundane and others; miraculous.  But once gone, it is very unlikely to ever re-emerge.  In fact, this is a part of our problems right now.  We have been made to forget the uniqueness of our history.  We are the New World.  We are the reality of a vague sense of wonder and hope for which medieval Europe gazed westward.  Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis, arose from the mists of the western seas.  In the historical rounding error of four hundred years, a wondrous nation, one-of-its kind sprouted from its ancient hills, and fertile fields.  The Blessings of God were rained upon the head of America.  And the blessings crouching below in veins of gold and silver, and flowing oil in the very crags of rocks, all had been as if laid away for some future time.  Our time.  And once gone, it will never ever be made whole, again. And with sorrow I watch and in horror I see those whose hatred for America is matched only by their hatred of the idea of a Loving Creator, who see blessings from God as if it were ourselves who ripped them out of the heart of the New World.   Our own society has been mentally mangled and spiritually oppressed, to create and adore “Avatar”.  We fall over ourselves to pound our chests in mea culpa, as if The New World was Pandora and the Pilgrims and the white race of English-speaking settlers were as the cigar chomping military maniac at the service of the Corporate weenie.  Only a dying nation would portray itself thus.  Is it too late to once again sense the grandeur and sweep of History in the term “The New Atlantis“?

Middle Class: The Exceptional Flash-In-The-Pan

I do not know who it was that conflated the history of European oppression over Native-Americans into this discussion, but it is off point.  Oppression can only be recognized in a Civilization that has notions of Liberty.  From the Incas, to the Maya, the Aztec, the Mississippian Mound Builders, all were based upon Tribalism and Force.  Same for all of the Civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia.  Tribalism and Force.  Greek City-States were based on power and tyranny or power and democracy (in its cannibalistic sense).  The Greeks however did produce the first political philosophers; though their ideas were never given a chance to take root.  More war and tribalism destroyed the Greeks.  And made way for Alexander.  And there was a brief flicker of enlightenment, but Aristotle’s philosophy did not stand up to Alexander’s great Thirst for wine women and that gold-standard of tribalistic thought: Glory!  And then Rome.  The Republic, looked to the Philosophy of the Greeks.  The ancient perpetual antagonism between oppressed and oppressor was channeled into political rather than military striving.  But, the Light of The Republic flickered only long enough to produce a civilizational memory of the concept of political Liberty.  And again the Glorious Generals resumed their sway.  The Empire gradually diminished and even its tyranny was remembered fondly in the dark ages that followed the onslaught of the Germanic, Hunnic and finally Mongolian Tribes.  All the time, it was Might Makes Right.  Even into Medieval Europe, it was the descendents of the most recent successful Tribal foray that became the so-called nobility, who ruled over the native-born toilers of the soil. Human History forever has been Swordsman, Horsemen, Pikemen, Musketeers, fighting for GLORIOUS Nobles.  The peasants saw only the change in fashions of dress and language as one ruling class was replaced by the next.  But, miraculously as technology crossed some threshold, and there was a food surplus (as a result of the Black Death), there developed a niche of specialists.  They learned new trades and produced things that the Nobility wanted.  Learning that a looted tradesman will probably no longer produce the goods desired, the Nobility had to recognize that here was a person who was not Clergy, nor Nobility, and yet not peasant either.  These craftsmen and women, and merchants became wealthy.  Their wealth was required by the Nobles to wage their Glorious Wars.  And again they learned that you can loot the Townsman once, but then he will either leave, or revert to farming.  And the Towns and Cities demanded licenses, or privileges (private law) that formalized the inhabitants newly recognized middle class.  These Towns (or Burgs) were filled with Burgers or Bourgeoisie.  The Bourgeois continued to produce more wealth than they needed and thus accumulated capital.  Finally a force evolved that stood a chance against the men on Horseback.  With Capital came power.  It took various true revolutions most classically the British Civil Wars to once and for all force the Nobles to accept the Legal Equality of the Middle Class.  This phenomenon in terms of world history and geography is like a flash bulb going off in a black empty arena.  The Middle Class has been despised by Nobility and “Old Money” ever since its foundation.  All of the nations of Europe arose in misty mythic ages where Glorious Monuments to Church And Princes still are seen everywhere.

But America, was new.  Here, there never were nobles.  Never were peasants tied to the land.   (Except the Slaves of course.  And that required the final revolution of Capitalism against Aristocracy, The American Civil War.)  America was founded by Pilgrims fleeing the High Church of the Aristocracy.  Yes, as the British Civil wars ran their course, when aristocrats were down they also came here, to Tidewater lands in the South.  But, that is why the US Civil War is the last act of the British Civil Wars, (see The Cousin’s Wars).  America is the exceptional nation.  Here we had no traditions that drifted back into some mythic past.  When America became Independent from Europe they never quite forgave us our uppityness.  Yet, just as on the microcosm the individual Earls and Dukes came to the merchants and capitalists for cash to throw their gala wars, so too did the European Nation-States come to the USA to fund their “Proud Military Tradition”.  They needed the wealth produced by the combination of Liberty, the Natural Resources of the Land to which the God whose hand is seen in History lead us to, and the ethic derived from pragmatic enlightened Reformed Protestantism.    They needed it but hated having to come to us for it.    And now, all the enemies, all the jealous Knights and the hordes of peasants they entice with myths of glory are circling.  America is Gulliver, and the Lilliputian ropes individually laughable are bound in fascicles and are slowly harnessing us again.  Once again America, and The Middle Class will be taught their place!  And the very brief flash will flare out, and the darkness will  seem much more dark than it had been before.  All of the technological advances produced by America and the Liberal World of which it was the Champion will be weaponized and turned upon us.  And The World can resume its Quest For Glory, For Counting Coup, For Collecting Scalps and Ears and Shrunken heads.   Please, the Indians were just as beholden to Might makes Right and the Ideals of Honor and Glory as the monocled and scar-faced Prussian Junker.  They merely lacked the technology to produce mustard gas and barbed wire and machine guns!

Thoughts On News That China/India/Brazil are now becoming more attractive to Capital Than US.

We are being deliberately “de-industrialized”. The brief flourishing of the phenomenon called The Middle Class, is being brought to an end. From its inception it was despised as a group of “upstarts”, who created wealth rather than seizing it, in Glorious Battle. The “Noble-born” were further humiliated by having to concede certain liberties in return for loans. The Aristocracy of Europe, represents merely the descendants of the final Horse Powered, armored and armed gangsters who managed to dominate a particular region. The Townsfolk, merchants and tradesmen, created the material necessities and luxuries for the noble’s grandeur. The Aristocracy hated them. As the printing press became established, printers joined the budding middle class. And as books became affordable and accessible, literacy spread “downward” from the Secular and Ecclesiastical Power Structure.

When the Middle Class began to read the Bible in their own language, they noticed a “slight” discrepancy between the Gospel of Yeshua and the practices of “The Church”. Capitalism, the descriptive term for the economy produced by non-coerced rational intelligent human beings seeking to improve their material circumstances, has always been seen as the dagger aimed at the heart of the inherited aristocracy and “The Church”. But the “Lords” armed with sword and armor, and the “Priests” armed with the “Keys” which determined an afterlife in “Hell” or “Heaven”, were not about to allow a bunch of “nouveau riche, upstarts” to dare to demand a place at their table! No siree!

The Nobles dazzled the peasants with their splendor, their palaces, their castles, their Glory! The “Church” kept the illiterate peasants, ignorant and superstitious. And the Top incited and allied themselves with the bottom. Through armor, sword and war horses taxation was levied on the capitalist, middle-class, Protestant leaning, literate and enlightened producers of wealth. With that loot, the peasants could be bribed with a pittance of bread, a few Church sponsored feasts, and the “Keys” to the Afterlife.

America, unlike any country before or since, was instituted by The Middle Class. There has never been an Established Church nor a Hereditary Aristocracy. Nor has their been a peasantry , tied to the soil; (except of course the peculiar institution of Slavery, which was finally overthrown by Federal Troops enacting the final clash of Landed Aristocracy versus Bourgeois Capitalism, in the English-speaking world.) Thus there has never been any other class than Middle Class!

While it took the French Revolution, the terror, Bonaparte, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin for Europe to work out its ancient class struggles, we Americans started with a clean slate!

And ever since our Independence and the Constitutional Republic that was established here, they bided their time. While they were busy with their perpetual wars that was the very raison d’être for their States’ existence, Americans, middleclass all, were busy as well. Busy planting, inventing, growing, and becoming quietly The Major Power! The Eurotrash needed to borrow from us, just as their ancestors borrowed from the Bourgeois (Burg=Town; thus Bourgeois=Townsfolk). And they had to pretend to admire and love us. We needed to feel loved. But THEY never have forgiven us our success. They have been scheming to destroy the Middle Class bastion of America. Even Americans who flattered themselves that they represented an Aristocracy of Wealth, began to sneer with disdain for the middleclass. They are importing an underclass to be wielded against us; just as the Priests and Lords manipulated the peasantry in Europe.

THEY DESPISE US. THEY ARE OUR MOST DANGEROUS FOE. THEY ARE AMONGST US. THEY MEAN TO DESTROY US! The deliberate destruction of the American Middleclass must be seen for what it is. It is the fruition of two centuries of scheming Nobles and Priests to cut us “down to size”. How dare we proclaim we are their equals, all created by one God? Finally, all the subplots, schemes, infiltrations and deliberate undermining of our Republican Culture is being deployed. They know their time is short. They know now that we know, and they will move quickly to throttle us once and for all time. And once more the spurred boot of the Knight will be upon our neck.

Libertarianism, Same Sex Marriage,Polygamy, and Civil Rights

The progressives have long known that emergent social order represents a deeper and stronger force than any political order.  Therefore the societal norms must never be left un-deconstructed.  As profoundly Marxist, the Progressives “see” an underlying oppressor and oppressed in every single transaction; economic, or social, or criminal/justice.  That is why they have invested so much into “deconstructing”  the collective subconscious of our culture and society.

As a Libertarian Within Constitutional Bounds, like John Locke, I do not believe with Thomas Hobbes that The State Of Nature is necessarily a war of all against all, bloody, violent and brief (or however he put it).  Locke, was more optimistic about human nature.  (Hobbes was deeply shocked by the violence of the English Civil Wars.)  John Locke believed that the state of nature would reveal self-emergent cooperative organized social activity.  Therefore any Government to which we may delegate some part of our Rights must in the net be a benefit to us, and certainly not the opposite.

Point being that Governments are secondary, they are to the society as say, consciousness is to the deep unconscious.  Therefore the Government is a subset of the greater set: the society.  For The Government to reach up in the conceit that it might change the society of which it is a creation, is the essence of tyranny.  The Nation has a government and not the reverse!  For the State, the Government, to presume to legislate on matters of social structure is the hallmark of totalitarianism.  Once that threshold is crossed, every single aspect of life is politicized.  It is the end of civil society and the beginning of illiberal coercive Totalitarian rule.

We, the American people have opened  Pandora’s Box by elevating certain Ends as justifying illiberal means.  It was the Civil Rights Movement that was the End to which we sacrificed the ideal of Constitutional Government as a subset of Society, and The Nation.  Though young at that time, I recall the segregationists’ argument that the right to choose with whom one wishes to associate was beyond the realm in which legitimate Government might legislate.  The Right to dispose of one’s Private Property was the business of the owner and no other, unless his activity infringed upon another citizen’s Rights.  All of these arguments were denounced as mere rhetoric to justify the resistance to the removal of odious Jim Crow Laws.  (Similar to today’s automatic presumption by The Lamestream Media that to question Climate Change is merely a means to protect “Big Oil” and other financial interests.)  As I think back to those days of the Civil Rights Movement, I recall, that even as a child, I noticed that the arguments of those objecting to limitations on the right to associate and the right to private property were never answered; only their motives were impugned.  I am certain that many, maybe the majority of those who objected to the intrusion of Government into the private sphere were defending Jim Crow, and were “merely using” the rhetoric of Liberty to do so.  Yet, logically, the motive of an argument says nothing about its truthfulness.

The Ends, ending Jim Crow in the south, justified the means.  The Statists haven’t looked back since.  The power that the State claimed it had to force lunch counters to serve any and every person, has now been turned on the question of how much salt may be used, or whether or not a menu must list the amounts of “trans” fats!

Once the state has that much power it of course becomes a matter of urgency to have a seat at that table.  All the populists who believe that K Street Lobbyists are destroying our country are deceived.  The Lobbyists are merely like yellow-jacks swarming around the honey pot.  Corruption exists to the exact degree to which Government intrudes on the economic and social life of the people.  The ultimate result is this, this thugocracy of Al Capone and Chicagobama!  We allowed the Federal Government to dictate the limitations of the use of private property and dare to be surprised by the Federal Government setting up FEMA, Homeland Security, and all manner of potential coercive powers to be used against The People.

Now, to the matter of Gay Marriage, and Polygamy.  These “life-style” choices appear to be a libertarian issue.  But, they are not.  Tactically they are being used to deligitamatize the concept of Government being a product of the society-at-large.  The spontaneous self-emergent  social-organization is being cast as that which is unsupervised by the Government.  Instead of Civil Society in which the default is set to Liberty, and is supreme everywhere except in specific areas to which the Government is given authority by the people in order to improve their lives; we have created the monstrous reverse.  Leviathan is now everywhere supreme except for the smaller and smaller islands in which it is “limited” under certain circumstances, often requiring licenses, and fees.   Only Leviathan can change the definitions of words.  Only Leviathan can dare to attempt a complete “transformation” of its subjects’ lives (Leviathan has subjects, not citizens.)

The Power to define marriage is not found in Legitimate Government.  Marriage, is an institution that predates the United States Of America, its Constitution, and its authority.  King Canute proved that not even as great a Monarch as he could stop the rise and fall of the tide.  The Government has the right to define marriage, as it has the right to make day follow night.  Even a democratic government can not vote “up” to be “down”.  That, however is a utilitarian argument.  I do not like utilitarian arguments.  Say, the USA did have the power to change the rotation of the Earth it could then decide to change the days and the nights!

The Idealistic Argument is the moral one.  And that is: the power of the government is derived from that which the people have delegated it, in order to improve their lives by creating an even playing field, protection from violence or threat of such, enforcement of contracts, common defense and similar delineated roles.  Its powers being derived, and not inherent to itself, The Government  has no legitimate role in changing the society to which it owes its legitimacy.  Thus, it cannot change the definition of marriage!

If polygamous consenting adults wish to play house, that is within their liberty to do so.  It is not in their power, nor therefore in the government’s power to force the people into accepting that status as one of Marriage.  Same with Gay couples.  It is just politeness to not ask, and it is proper respect to the community at large to not flaunt it.

It is not the Libertarianism I believe in, that would force citizens to accept different definitions of traditional family life.  Go, do what you wish.  Let the LORD judge!  But do not demand that the power of the United States Of America be put at your disposal to make your lifestyle socially acceptable.    And to have to deal with the utilitarian argument would be a nightmare!  Why couldn’t “a family” consist of 100 men and 1000 women all in a state of marriage together?  That would sure make family health insurance coverage a fatal cost on any company that offered it.  And now companies must offer it!  What about divorce?  Would a vote of “the family” be required before one could leave it?  No, our society has evolved into a monogamous one so long ago that polygamy can be discerned only in the mystic and mythic past.  For whatever reason the society of Western Civilization has become globalized.  Who is to say which aspect of its particularity caused it to overgrow and supplant all the others?

Soylent-Greening Of America

This day, March 22, will someday be seen as the day The Constitution of The United States Of America was officially relegated to plexiglass entombment in a climate controlled and sealed museum. Like the Mona Lisa, tourists will walk by, and “ooh and ah” and move along to the next antiquity, feigning enthusiasm despite aching feet, and thoughts of Dinner.
Today will be recalled as equally infamous as 12/7/1941. Only worse, for today is the day the Republic becomes Empire. We now have RINO nation: Republic In Name Only.

The Athenian Democracy which was unrestrained by those pesky “negative rights”, taught the Framers that untrammeled majority rule always ends in chaos or tyranny. The very word “democracy” was rightly held to be pejorative by the Enlightenment Political Philosophers, and even by our Framers. Rule by the majority results in the constant war of individual interests. It is worse than the State Of Nature because we have ceded some of our Natural Rights to The State in order to prevent the Hobbesian “war of all against all”, yet have created the worst of both worlds. The State has abrogated the Social Contract. Rather than individuals versus individuals as in The State Of Nature, we have a simple majority in charge of the State’s monopoly of coercive force. Any cobbled together majority can now cannibalize the minority. Hey! Maybe that is what the Green Jobs will be? They will be Soylent Green Jobs! (I hereby claim patent to all uses of the “Soylent” prefix when criticizing the Green Movement.)

CARBONISM:It Is Much More Than Cap & Trade

Just as the Junta tried to shift the story of the ACORN groups’ implicit support of bringing in under age girls from Latin America for the “sex industry” to one of attack and legal prosecution of the two brave souls who were doing what the media should have been doing; here the same tactics will be used! The Climate Change Industry is an incestuous partnering of those who seek Global Power for its own sake, with scientists dependent upon grant money for their livelihood. If one wants to advance in that field, the field of Climate Change, it is apparent that grants go to those who can be counted on to bring in the data. Unspoken of course, is the necessity of being willing to torture the data to wring from it a confession of warming, or at least change of some kind or another to create the scenario of the coming critical climate catastrophe . And once again the brave souls who actually stand up and speak TRUTH to AUTHORITY, are the ones smeared by the power-hungry! During the roughly 45 seconds devoted to this issue on BBC, the embarrassing eco-emails were discounted while the images showed huge chimney stacks belching forth clouds of God knows what! “They” deliberately conflate CO2 and air pollution. CO2 is non-toxic, and if it weren’t for the greenhouse gas theory of global warming a slight raising or lowering of the atmospheric concentration would be meaningless. Plants need it and water and sunshine to make sugars (sweet, dude!)  If “they” force us to add CO2-capture technology to our energy production, and require us to “buy” from “developing” countries the unused “portion of their CO2 allotment”, we will spend Trillions and the air will not be anymore free of pollutants than it is now! “They” are not interested in fighting air pollution! They are after power. They are after what they have long craved, the end of American independence from Europe. From the knights and princes of Aristocracy to the van guard of the Proletariat, they all have despised the Capitalist middle-class. We Americans have allowed ourselves to become ignorant of Political Philosophy. And in a Free country at Liberty ,it being easily lived, seems a a waste of time to study. But we have been lulled into the sense of the inevitability of America. We have forgotten how unique America is when seen in the long course of human history. Behind our oceans, with our endless prairies of virgin soil providing pastures of plenty, we have forgotten that America is The Exceptional Nation. We are afraid of looking foolish if we suggest such a thing! Our “leaders” are steeped in the assumptions of cultural relativity; “Who are we to judge?” “They” hate Americans’ sense of exceptionalism. The same sorts hate the idea of The Jews being The Chosen People. It is not for nothing that Iran’s mullahs call the United States “The Great Satan” and the modern Jewish State of Israel “The Lesser Satan”.

The one and only reason for the Global Warming Cult has been to restore the “natural” order of things. Bring America to heel. Restore the uppity middle-class to the serfdom from which Capitalism had delivered them. Or, to force the “historic march of history” as Marx envisaged; seizing the means of production from the necessary but now redundant middle-class. This has been and will continue be the real point of the so-called Climate Crisis.

One must go a further step and ask “how did this all-encompassing Climate Model come to have adherents every bit as fervid as those of any religion?”  As is said “Those who believe in nothing will fall for anything.”  The lack of potential disprovability is often cited as the hallmark of a non-scientific theory.  Any theory that can with a straight face allow its adherents to claim that evidence of cooling and of warming both support their claim is clearly un-disprovable; therefore it is un-scientific.   If not science, what is it?  I believe it is the means to the end which is the establishment of a Global Government which would redistribute the entire world’s wealth in a “more fair” manner.  But what is that end, if not an alternative vision of the means to bring about The Messianic Age?  The Culture War that have  embittered many of us is more akin to a Religious War than a political one.  And that is what it is, exactly.

The New Religion in all its myriads of self-help and self-improvement books and movements is unified on this one point: Man has created God in its own image.   Only Man can fix what he has broken. Through his attempts at defying nature and his daring belief that he is above Nature, humanity has brought us to this unsustainable and teetering edge of doom.  Instead of defying Nature the New Religion has implicitly deified Nature.  This of course is the total repudiation of Judeo-Christian beliefs. “Apostasy”  would have been hurled at these folks at another time.  But nowadays, most wouldn’t even know the meaning of the word, and those who did would take Pride in “speaking Truth to Power”.  Until only these past decades, a blink in human history, God created Man in His own image.  A generous God who extends an invitation to those who choose to be with Him, created humanity with the free-will to make meaningful moral decisions.  The God of the Bible wants volunteers, not an army of robots.  The ability to choose evil was given, in order to define Good.  (In fact the ability to choose choice was given.  The Serpent acting in his perceived self-interest actually enacted God’s script.  By arranging that the choice to choose stemmed from the Serpent, the consequences of evil choices were his to bear.  The first choice was to disobey and eat of the fruit of the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Previous and subsequent verses, state that all the trees and plants bore fruit and seed after their kind.  Thus, it follows that the Fruit of the Tree that Eve ate and shared with Adam also had a Seed.  This knowledge informs the scene in which God prophesies  that the though the Serpents Seed will hiss at (or strike at) the heel of the Woman’s Seed, her seed will ultimately wound the Serpent’s Seed in the head.  I suggest that the Seed of the Woman, refers to the one she had just eaten that was the seed of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil!  This is the first reference to a Messianic Age!  All of Western Civilization believed until five minutes ago that human beings constantly faced moral choices.  The choices that seem to fulfill our animal appetites and lusts at other human’s expense have always been seen as “evil”.  But Thankfully, because the consequences of the first choice: to choose or not to choose to eat the Fruit will be laid at the feet of The Serpent (Ha!  Until the episode in The Garden, he did have limbs, such as feet!), there is a space to choose repentance and atonement.  During the days of The Temples and  back to the Mishkan (Tabernacle) in the Wilderness there where Priestly Sacrifices that restored one to the purity necessary to choosing God.  With the end of the sacrificial system repentance alone may have sufficed.  Or not.  In pre-reformed and un-neutered Judaism there was the belief in the coming of The Messiah. Maimonides (Ram Bam) listed that belief as a requirement for all Jews.  This is as close as Judaism has come to having a Dogma.  Obviously, the Christian part of Judeo-Christianity believes The Messiah of The Jews has come, was rejected and will come in the Last days when humanity will be teetering on the edge of doom. Historically Jews also believed that The Messiah will appear at a time that seems as if The Jewish People as well as humanity in general will be teetering at the edge of doom; at a time when Jerusalem will be like a cup around which the drunken nations will be reeling.  Until ten minutes ago the entire Judeo-Christian World would have gasped at the scene of the fulfillment of prophecies in of a modern nation-state of Jews in The Land , with Jerusalem the capital!  Over the past five minutes we have become “used to” the idea.

Modern mainstream Jews if pressed will speculate on something ill-defined but called The Messianic Age.  The sense of an actual individual Messiah is stepped around and avoided, as long as possible without actually getting pinned down.  Until five minutes ago mainstream Christian denominations would have been reading the Prophets and singing Hallel at the vision of the Jews returning from the four corners of the world to Eretz Israel.  Though indeed there are those who preach prophecy, they seem to be more of an embarrassment to the mainline.  (The incredible symmetry discovered by the Media between Obama’s Rev. Wright in whose pews he sat for untold Sundays, and McCain’s John Hagee who merely offered his endorsement, for crying out loud, was a tip off to just how Biblically Illiterate the Main Stream Media have become.) Yes, Hagee and many many other Christian preachers are noticing a convergence of current events and the constellation of signs heralding the return of Yeshua.  It is important to note that these preachers are mocked by the majority of Americans.  And just as Jews who until five minutes ago expected  The Messiah; an individual recognizable as such, to appear and make all things right again.  Most Jews who state that now “quaint” view are quickly distanced from, by those who have a connection with Judaism more akin to that with an old Teddy Bear.  Warm and Fuzzy, but nothing to take too seriously.  In other words, The West, when it became embarrassed to call itself Christendom any longer, and Suburban Jewry embarrassed by any talk of a Messiah or of any fulfillment of Prophecy, both have a God-sized hole into which this substitute Human-Centered Religion has taken up residence.  If as I believe to be the case, that Christianity in truth is composed of those who have excepted the invitation to join Israel via Jesus.  ( See Romans 9,10  New Testament my Jewish friends.  You know, it won’t bite you.  In fact you will find a Yeshua who is much more like Rab Akeiva than he is to whatever you have imagined him to be portrayed as.) Israel therefore represents all of the Jewish people who have ever lived, plus gentiles who have become ingrafted into the Fig Tree, and many members of the Lost Ten Tribes (Amos 9:9) who have been brought home to the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob through their exposure to the Christian Bible.  So, just as prophesied the Messiah (Yeshua) indeed come for the Lost Sheep of Israel!  And, he did not come for the Jews, for they were not Lost Sheep!  Even in the Jewish Diaspora we weren’t lost, merely exiled.  Not so those whom the Assyrians carted away into an amnestic oblivion (until again we see anew at Amos 9:9)  Point being that Israel or Jacob was at war with Esau even in Rebecca’s womb.  They both cannot be powerful at the same time.  As Jacob waxed (through Christendom and the explosive expansion of The West) Esau (who with Ishmael) can be seen to represent Islam, waned.  And as actual belief as opposed to perfunctory rituals has fallen off, especially in Europe, once known as Christendom, Esau is rising.  This is the explanation to the question that baffles those with curiosity to even notice or care; Why does it seem that the American and European Left seem to be so willfully blind when it comes to Islam’s absolutely antithetical stance to virtually every aspect of their agenda?  The answer is the old adage of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”.  Thus the ACLU will Mirandize Islamic warriors who if allowed to would immediately behead the useful idiots who helped them victory!

I hope that this essay initially on Carbonism, the new religion, and finally about its ultimate meaning, will open your eyes to the magnitude of the stakes at risk.  Cap & Trade is not just a sneakier way to tax and spend.  It is part of a much larger picture.  It is a try out, or the real thing.  The “thing” being a Secular (And especially anti-Christian and anti-Jewish) World Government.  The Jewish People need to keep Torah, but maybe spend some reading time going beyond the endless cycle of the Five Books of Moses, Torah.  Many Jews seem to believe that the Prophets have nothing to offer other than homiletics.  I strongly suggest every Jew read the Prophets. Considering only those prophecies within the Torah, speaking of the twelve sons of Jacob, in Genesis and Deuteronomy, one must accept that the contortions of history that mainstream Rabbinic interpretation requires in order to pronounce them all as having already been fulfilled, or look from our twenty-first century perspective and see if some prophecies might  only now be coming recognizable without cross-eyed contortions.  The only other option is to dare say that many of the prophecies of the Torah are wrong (God forbid!)And that is Torah.  When we read the Prophets, Isaiah, Ezekial, Zechariah, Amos, etc with a ear and an eye looking for fulfillment now in this time of the regathering of the Jewish State in Eretz Israel, an entire galaxy opens.  Daniel, included with Writings in Jewish Tanaach, is considered with the Prophets in Christian Bibles.  No matter. Daniel is told clearly that these things he is to see are for “the latter days” and are to be locked until that time.  Reading Daniel today, it suddenly is unlocked.  It is yesterday’s Newspaper, tomorrow’s headlines.

There soon will be only two places to stand; either with the coming Global Government or with God’s Kingdom.  Lucifer is described as the most beautiful of Angels.  The promise of an enlightened Global Government fairly distributing the gifts of the earth, creating peace, even in Jerusalem will tempt many, even most.  Its ruler will be glib and enthralling to behold.  But read the fine-print before you hold your hand out to sign.  When it (he) asks only for the division of Jerusalem it will seem reasonable.  But, do you think the story of the infant and the two mothers disputing his maternity is told for only that level of understanding?  When Solomon threatened to slice the infant in half the real mother refused for she would rather he lived and grew up with the impostor then die.  Watch for those who offer much for dividing Jerusalem.  And know that those who refuse to accept that division will be scorned as zealots or racists or whatever.  But as David knew, with God with me who can stand against me.  But whether Cap & Trade will be the foundation of the Global Power, or a false start in that direction, it is coming.  And when it comes there will be no middle ground!  Prepare your minds now for the choices ahead.
