this is what should keep you up at night…

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

Marie Curie


(Bela Lugosi as Dracula 1931)

When I was a kid, I loved watching those old black and white horror movies from the ’30s and ’40s—
Dracula, Frankenstein, The Werewolf, The Mummy, all the way up to the vampy ’60’s with
Vincent Price’s The Pit and the Pendulum, the Creature from the Black Lagoon
along with such cult classics as Dark Shadows.

At 10, I can remember telling my mother to buy real garlic and not that powdered stuff
she’d keep in her spice cabinet.
I needed the real deal in order to sleep soundly at night.
Throw in a Crucifix, of which hung on my wall, and all I needed was a silver spike,
some silver bullets and I would be safe and sound.

Ode to the imagination of a 10-year-old.

As an adult, having seen snippets from those same early horror flicks, I now get tickled seeing
the ridiculous over-emphasized melodramatics.

Looking back, however, I can remember the difficulty in trying to convince my 10-year-old self,
complete with an overactive imagination, that sleeping with a strand of garlic around my
neck was not exactly prudent and totally impractical.

Thankfully, I’ve outgrown the frightful likes of Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff,
as well as Vincent Price…
however, there is one individual who does, in fact, leave me a bit
restless at night.
One whose very name can cast fear in my heart… just as he should yours.
And all because he remains more of enigma on the world stage rather than
a defined individual.

I’ve written about this individual before…
actually, all the way back in 2016 when the notion of Brexit was becoming a household word…

Of recent weeks, I’ve read a great deal concerning the global financial powers-that-be
bemoaning or gloating, depending on which side of the fence they line their pockets,
what a Brexit would do to the global economy.
The likes of George Soros, a man who has profited, or make that made a killing,
on the downward slopes of markets before (mainly the Bank of England),
is set to cash in once again.
And cash in big—but yet no one really knows how big he cashes in
as he doesn’t disclose much…
This man parlays deeply and dangerously into American politics as he gives and gives
graciously to the Clintons and their campaigns…
He plays his hand in global economies and seems to try to muscle the outcomes of elections
as well as markets worldwide—all to his benefit—

The rich and powerful trouble me.
Rich and powerful politicians trouble me.
Even our self-centered, anything and everything goes, millennials trouble me.

Yes, George Soros troubles me.

And he should trouble anyone who loves America, democracy as well as the gift our
founding Father’s left for us.

And it’s because George Soros is determined to rewrite the Constitution of the United States.

However, this notion is nothing new and according to the authors of the book
I mentioned the other day…dark forces have long yearned to alter
The United States as you and I know it to be.

The book in question is not exactly new as it actually came out in 2006…
The Shadow Party
How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and the Sixties Radicals
Seized Control of the Democratic Party

by David Horowitz and Richard Poe

The authors explain that before there was George Soros, there were others who helped
to form Mr. Soros…just as Mr.Soros has helped to form the likes of others—
Hillary Clinton being one such individual.

Growing up, I knew early on from my interest in history and politics, and in part due to the
mystery surrounding the one time leader of the Teamsters Union, Jimmy Hoffa, that big Government
was sadly capable of just about anything.

Powerful people like…power.
Just as much as they like control.

J. Edgar Hoover
Franklin Roosevelt
Joseph Kennedy and his three famous sons
Richard Nixon
Bill Clinton
Hillary Clinton
Tip O’Neil
Huey Long
Barak Obama
George Soros
Bill Gates
Nancy Pelosi
Katharine Graham

the list of movers and shakers seems nearly endless…

And there are reasons as to why we are currently watching the rise of the Fab 4
Congressional leaders.
It is not coincidental.

Reasons you and I, the average citizen, need to understand.

And so reading, as I do each evening a few pages here and there,
I have certainly been given just enough information in order to produce more than
my fair share of nightmares.

If you are left scratching your head as to why we seem to be in such a mess these days in
this nation of ours, let me simply recommend this book…
It won’t take too many pages until you’ll begin to understand.

Informed citizens or clueless and mindless entities?
…those in the shadows prefer you remain clueless and most definitely mindless.

Sometimes we vote for a candidate not so much because we love them but because
we know they are the lesser of the evils…and becasue we know garlic
does nothing to help the evil intentions…

    The manipulation of young minds is what scares me more than anything. The millennials are so angry, confused and think that all you have to do is write a check and it will be taken care of. These are the ones who will someday lead our nation. Whenever I have a discussion with them, it usually comes to an abrupt end when I ask what they would do to solve all the problems they are concerned about.

    I have been on an ignorance bent lately. I should probably do something light to change the mood, but when you hear some old retirees at the fast food joint blaming Trump for all the things that the Dems have done and praising the Dems for legislation that the Republicans pushed through – even reported that way by the liberal press – you wonder if anyone has a lick of sense anymore. Disinformation seems more powerful than truth, but God has a purpose. We just may not like what happens in the meantime.

    • that’s the trouble isn’t Mark? Be it disinformation or ignorance—the scary thing is that the average citizen swallows so much hook, line and sinker—we need to educate ourselves—and yes, in the end, God’s got this—it’s just a matter of us trying to live through the mess…

    And as for the scary movies, my wife loves them, but I never watch them. I saw a very tame one at about 8 or 9 years old and did not sleep at all that night. I swore never again.

    I have added your recommendation to my “must read” list. Hugs & blessings to you for sharing!!

  5. LOL! I don’t know Julie, garlic can fix just about anything. Has anybody tried dousing Soros in garlic? They have not. 🙂

    I remember the old monster movies, too. I think I still enjoy them on occasion. One thing they taught me, evil must be invited in. Vampires can’t pass through a window or a doorway without our permission. We hold the power, we have the authority to banish them. In a world desperate to make us all think we’re victims, this is important wisdom to have. 🙂

    God does have control and He does raise up and/or destroy rulers and nations. However, he does let the will of man determine the route we take. And he will be “on the side” of those who choose to honor his name. If the wicked “vote” to ignore him, we all may walk a rough path to get to God’s destination. Wickedness is very evident; we had better wake up for the fight, which is best won when we start on our knees. “Oh, Lord, have mercy on us. Help us to win victories for your name’s sake. That will be the righteous path.”

    The Left scares me…

    Funny. When I was a boy I went to a movie at the theater about Hercules. The monsters scared me so much I had to walk out.

    The thing we must always remember because it gives us hope is that God is in control. Romans 8:28

    A prayer works better than garlic.
