Odds & Ends

You, my blog readers, are like family to me. I have wanted to post to you for ages, but life happens!!!!! I turn 93 in August. Fran is 90 in October.

Term limits – Those of you in business will know that the best salesman is not necessarily the best sales-manager. Each job needs different skills.

Think about it – Which would YOU be better at, – President, Lawmaker, Judge?

Some believe that politics should not be a long-time career. I disagree. When I find a gifted law-maker, or president, who is honest and appears to be more qualified than his challengers, I do not want to be told I cannot vote for him because of term limits.

The reason for term limits was to prevent people from voting dumb. Another reason was to break up one-party control. Term limits is only a band-aid. It does not stop dumb voting.

The solution is informed voting. That is a hard problem, but not an overwhelming one. I understand – You are not interested and just want to be left alone. How’s that working out for you?

Each one of us is different. Hou inform yourself is up to you. You can follow political news and become familiar with how those representatives for whom you are responsible, are voting. Your church may host a local candidates debate. You might ask an activist friend whose judgement you trust. I encourage browsing

Hypnotics?

Some of my friends and loved ones have told me that my views of the 2020 election fraud are false. That is their right. They are entitled to their opinions. What concerns me is their apparently dogmatic refusal to refute the evidence I offer. Just saying, “it is unsubstantiated” does not make it so! It is as though they have been hypnotized.

I offer the Arizona State Senate report, the Wisconsin Special Council Report, the Constitution regarding vote mechanics, and evidence that most voting machine systems are compromised. I ask for evidence of error in any of these for starters.

To those who have not paid attention – use your liberty or lose it! Tina Peters, a Gold Star mother, is a patriot hero!

Reviewing vote fraud

Begin by accepting that American patriotism has been diluted, but is far from dead. Some forms of vote fraud existed in every state on November 3rd, 2020. There is evidence that Trump won with around 80 million votes to Biden’s 60 million votes.

The fraud was so massive that it is hard to grasp and easy to get lost in the details. I will try to make it clear. Those who conspired to commit fraud (many groups, sub-groups, and individuals with diverse motivations, but similar goals) may have been manipulating election results for years. 2020 was the first time they were able to steal a Presidential election.

The basic fraud begins by inflating the voter rolls with names dead voters, those who have moved away, and those not qualified to vote. This creates a slush fund of votes to draw upon when needed, “ghost votes”. Add to that vote-by-mail ballots spread like candy all over the state. Next, add to the “slush fund” the names of real people who rarely vote. If they should decide to vote, they are often told, “Records show you already voted by mail.”

All of this was being discovered in November. Trump and his supporters were shouting from the housetops! They were drowned out by the press and the traitors saying, “Move along – nothing to see here.” Truth is always fighting to surface.

By January 6, 2021, there was absolute evidence of fraud. The congress was to meet, in order to certify the election. Numerous representatives and senators were prepared to block certification. Should their efforts fail, the final certification was in the hands of Vice President Pence. All that was interrupted by what appears to have been a staged event that helped the conspirators. The battle for truth continues.

A major 2020 conspiracy involves China and cyber warfare. I need to explain some internet details. –

Internet messages are sent in “packets” from computer to computer. Each internet computer has an “IP Address” (user name & worldwide location). American patriots, suspecting what was about to happen, set up to capture internet packets (PCAPS) of messages involving vote counts.

Note – A “PCAP” is like a photograph. It cannot be changed. It is what it is!

Almost every county in every state was hacked as proven by a mountain of PCAP data. Mike Lindell has spent millions of dollars having this computer language translated and certified. These data show how many votes were flipped (Trump to Biden) in each county! Anyone is free to confirm what I have said by reading evidence gathered on www.FrankSpeech.com

Unless we block further cyber vulnerability, we can never again elect our own representatives. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION NOW! — www.Fix2020First.com

Musings

TREASON – “In the United States, treason is confined to the actual levying of war against the United States, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” [Webster 1828]

There are those who believe in a one-world government. “If nations cause wars, then eliminate nations!” – Create a single global government. – The only global government that will ever succeed is a monarchy called The Kingdom of God. Every other effort at globalism will fail because it is governed by imperfect men.

To “govern” is to “direct, regulate, control, restrain”. [Webster 1828] The Bible records common sense rules (i.e. laws) for governing families, churches and civil governments, as well as the individuals who govern them.

Throughout the Bible, I find only three human organizations through which God deals: Family, Church, State. Families are the building block of every civilization. The vertical relationship between families and some higher power (pagan or Christian) we call, “church”. The horizontal relationship between families and families we call, “state” or “civil government”.

Christ was asked, “What is the greatest commandment?” His reply, “Love God (vertical) and love others (horizontal).” [a paraphrase] In societies, the quality of the vertical relationship will always determine the quality of the horizontal relationship. Never the other way round!

I believe powerful “globalist” conspirators have been at work for generations. One of their tools is “dialectics”. Use the conflict between two things (a thesis & antithesis) to cause change (synthesis). Note that the issues in conflict are not important, the goal of dialectics is change (synthesis).

A simple example usen by “Jews for Jesus” in New York City for street evangelism: Two members cross the street and begin yelling derisive remarks at their team-mates. Soon a crowd gathers to observe the conflict. Whereupon a speaker mounts a box and begin preaching.

I suspect globalist conspititors are choreographing the current Crimea vs. Russia conflict in order to divert attention from “Freedom” movements. America stands in the way of a global government. Populist movements, like the recent Canadian trucker’s convoy, and the massive Trump rallies are popping up all over the world! The conspirators are trying to divert attention from them.

I encourage everyone to sign the petition [www.fix2020first.com] God’s hand is at work. Look beyond what your enemy wants you to focus upon. A good way to stay informed is to monitor (in spite of its frustrating faults!) – “The Lindell Report”, M-F noon & 7PM (eastern) –

This is a letter to our friends –

When does democracy work?

DEMOC̵´RACY, n. [Gr. δημοκρατια; δημος, people, and κρατεω, to possess, to govern.]
Government by the people; a form of government, in which the supreme power is lodged in the hands of the people collectively, or in which the people exercise the powers of legislation. Such was the government of Athens. [Webster 1828]]

“Government by the people” sounds like a good idea – but – it only works in a small group.

Let’s consider a New England colonial town. The city limits were set by how far one walked to the meeting house (usually a church). Every citizen voted on every issue. Think, “majority rule”.

The town’s only well needed an expensive replacement. Every citizen was required to share the expense. That was a real hardship on the widow Brown with her 9 children! She worked hard to care for her kids. The older ones did what they could to help, but the water tax would cause Mrs. Brown to make some hard choices. She had 10 tax shares.

The character of the town was good. Mrs. Brown’s share was quietly covered by neighbors.

Suppose I am wrong about the town’s character. Every time her neighbors pass the Browns’ house they see her kids, wearing ragged clothes and losing weight. Conscience is a powerful self-policing force. In small groups the majority is aware of the impact of their decisions upon the minority. Not so, when the group grows too large. The majority can become a mob, motivated by emotion.

REPUB´LIC̵, n. [L. respublica; res and publica; public affairs.] 1. A commonwealth; a state in which the exercise of the sovereign power is lodged in representatives elected by the people. In modern usage, it differs from a democracy or democratic state, in which the people exercise the powers of sovereignty in person. Yet the democracies of Greece are often called republics… [ Webster 1828]

In a republic, the minority has a representative to speak in their behalf. Once a group grows too large the minority is often overlooked. (In a lynch-mob, only one man objects!)

That is why our founders tried to break down the large groups into subgroups. Before the 17th amendment (1914), the two senators from each state were to be elected by their state legislatures. California has 40 state senators and 80 assemblymen. Thus originally, our senators were answerable to only 120 electors. But – Those electors, in turn, were answerable to smaller state districts.

Since 1914 our senators are answerable to the whole state-wide electorate! So much for Mrs. Brown! A senator answerable to 39 million voters is answerable to no one! Who is going to gather enough votes to challenge him.

Random thoughts

When an election is reported by the fake media to be “getting tighter”. Expect this to be code for, “We are about to steal this election.” Mike Lindell has overwhelming evidence that computer fraud is able to determine vote counts. Realize please, that – if we do not fix the vote fraud and return to local precinct, paper ballots, and accurate (not inflated) voter rolls – it doesn’t matter how you vote! I suspect the vote machine companies may have been charging high prices from incumbent politicians who fear a loss in an honest count.

Inspiring! —

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization not on the power of government, far from it. We have staked the whole of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the commandments of God. The future and success of America are not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded.” ~ James Madison

Regarding excessive amounts of military equipment stockpiled in Afghanistan – Who profits from replacing that equipment? I suspect – the same ones pushing the Ukraine conflict.

Good news! In Virginia a few men began gathering weekly to discus politics. The group grew quickly to over a hundred. It divided into 3 groups and grew. Now delegates are assigned to monitor & report on council and school board meetings. Citizens are getting involved.

Primary elections are where you choose (nominate) your candidates. General elections (in November) are where you choose between nominated candidates. It in important to nominate reliable, principled candidates. Once nominated, it becomes a numbers game to determine the majority party. Your mail box is about to be filled with slick “voter guides”. Most of them should be ignored! (A candidate can buy a recommendation from the guide’s publisher.) Rather, watch for voter guides that post answers to candidate position questions.
Down ticket candidates are important too. Try to attend debates. Invite them to come over and meet your neighbors.
Trump’s indorsements are significant. They usually flag the most reliable candidate AND their win builds Trump’s strength. If in doubt, I recommend going with Trump’s choice. There may be factors of which you are not aware.
Remember, liberals in both parties allow themselves to lie, cheat, and steal. Many may say they are indorsed. Few are chosen. Trust www.DonaldJTrump.com &

A Proverbs 31 wife

The other day, my dear wife said, “I want to be a Proverbs 31 wife.” What a blessing to have such a wife! My Frances lives up to the challenge. That makes me strive to be worthy. I want her to have the honor she deserves. —

Proverbs 31
10 Who can find a virtuous woman?
For her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
So that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax,
And worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants’ ships;
She bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night,
And giveth meat to her household,
And a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it:
With the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength,
And strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
Her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle,
And her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
Yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
For all her household are clothed with hscarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
Her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it;
And delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing;
And she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
And in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household,
And eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously,
But thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
But a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands;
And let her own works praise her in the gates.

Amen!
Her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously,
But thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
But a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands;
And let her own works praise her in the gates.

Tree rings & space

With news about the Webb Telescope (see NASA news) about to look at the origins of the universe, it seems appropriate to mention the Creator of the universe.

For those who replace a Creator with random chance over billions of years – I respond, “Please explain intelligent design, How can “random” produce a functioning eyeball?

The Bible has proven to be a reliable history book. The Bible appears to place creation at around 6,000 years ago. The first human, Adam, was placed in a garden in the area we know as Iraq. Suppose Adam had taken a chain-saw and cut down a tree in the garden. The stump would have had tree rings. Tree rings tell the history of the just-created tree. Adam was full grown. God created the universe with the image of age!

It requires a lot more “faith” to credit God’s handywork to random chance than it takes to acknowledge the God of the Bible!

This is a letter to our friends –

“…The laws of Nature and of Nature’s God…”

This phrase from our Declaration of Independence is rarely “unpacked”. I believe it was well understood when it was written.

The laws of nature existed at the earth’s creation. The founders called them, “natural law”.

The laws of Nature’s God, the 10 Commandments for example, were called, “revealed law”, and are found only in the Holy Bible
according to William Blackstone (1723 – 1780), father of the Legal profession.

Natural law is discovered by observation and reason. Revealed law is learned by prayer and study. Both are from the same
infinitely wise source. There was a time when natural law seemed to say the earth was flat. Men were misinterpreting the data.

In His loving benevolence, God gave us His inspired words (The Holy Bible). The Bible is much harder to misinterpret.
while natural law incorporates everything that exists, revealed law focuses upon humanity. In truth, revealed law is only a part
of natural law. Since natural law is discovered by imperfect (i.e. human) observation and reason, and revealed law is by direct
inspiration from God, revealed law is much more authoritative. Since they are from the same source they will never be in conflict,

I find only three human organizations created and used by God in the Bible – – Family – Church – State (people groups). These are the elements of every civilization. A guy and a girl get together and make a baby. That is a family, the building block of every civilization. Every civilization has some sort of higher power. We call that relationship, “church”. We call the relationship between families and families, “state”,

It is interesting – When Christ was asked for the greatest commandment He responded, “Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment
greater than these.”

We are to love God (vertical) and love others (horizontal). Represented by the cross of Christ.
