Destroyed by the Well Crafted Story

They lied to us. But, they weren’t just simple lies spoken against simple truths. They wrapped themselves in the flag and told us well-crafted stories that lured us away from our ideals, inch by precious inch.

They told us about suffering and woe. They cried out against imagined evils. They enticed us with visions of peace and prosperity. They promoted themselves as honest, benevolent and humane. And, within their beautiful tales they carefully insinuated their lies.

With the power of words, they slipped past our defenses and destroyed us. They sapped our strength and stole our will, until there was no one left to guard the gates of freedom.

The Top Ten Videos Of The Past Week:



For the past few years, a certain quote has nagged at me. I couldn’t quite place it. When I searched for it, I couldn’t find it, because I didn’t have the words quite right. There was something about ‘night’ and ‘guarding’ and ‘singing songs of liberty’. Oh, and a ‘road’.

But, I never quite found that quote.

Then, I watched this video, that you will also see in the research section:

We’re Not Ready for the Attack That’s Coming

YouTube shortlink:

It’s a ‘members only’ Right Angle from Bill Whittle, Stephen Green and Scott Ott. And, Bill started out by describing how Britain fortified Singapore so that she could not be conquered by the Japanese Navy. So, she wasn’t – which is why she was conquered by the Japanese Army that came through the jungle on bicycles. And, Bill said that America is Singapore.


Because we are so fortified against the enemy invading our homes and taking our liberty by force, that we forgot that there are other ways that they could steal our freedom. And, he pointed to what the Democrats did to Judge (now, Justice) Brett Kavanaugh.

They didn’t steal our freedom with guns. They stole it with stories. Well-crafted, precisely-engineered stories. And, that made me think of that quote.

In Search Of A Quote

So, I determined that THIS TIME, I would find it. So, I searched again, this time for “singing songs of freedom” – instead of liberty. Nope. Didn’t see it. Then, I just searched for “singing songs”. Too many results. Then, I did this search

“singing songs” night

Hmmm…. nope. Too many results.

Okay, how about this:

“singing songs” night freedom

Scroll down…

…scrollllll down…


I found it, and yeah. I had the words wrong. It wasn’t “singing songs of liberty” or “singing songs of freedom”. It was “singing songs to freedom”. What a difference a ‘to‘ makes.

The Quote

So, here’s the quote:

There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.

That is the first paragraph of an article called:

The Revolution Was

And, it was a monograph (aka, article) written in 1938 by Garet Garrett. But, I didn’t read that paragraph in the article, I saw it in a book, and not just any book. This book:

People’s Pottage

That book was published in 1958, by Garet and contained three of his articles, with ‘The Revolution Was’ the first of those three. And, I think that I read that book just a little over twenty years after it was published. I was just a teenager, so I didn’t really grasp the entirety and significance of what Garet said.

Now that I am in my fifties, I get it.

In fact, it wouldn’t be hard to rewrite that article and describe each president of the United States, as he lied his way into power and trampled the US Constitution. But, the one who did it best, was ol’ Eff Dee Arr.

The New Deal

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) lied to us. He said one thing that we wanted to hear, and then did the exact opposite – once he got into power. And, all throughout his reign, he told one well-crafted story after another and captured our freedoms. And, we let him do it.

His uncle, Theodore ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt, helped lay the ground work with his left wing ‘progressive’ policies and his ushering in of Woodrow Wilson by splitting the Republican Party. Teddy must have been a BIG influence on young FDR. And, when FDR walked into the White House, the foundations laid by Teddy and Woodrow, were ready for Franklin to build upon. And, they all used well-crafted stories to pull us in and capture America.

The Left is STILL using the artfully-created story to pull us this way or that. They are still taking what remains of our freedom and individuality by carefully creating each story to do more and more damage. It’s a kind of death-by-a-thousand-cuts.

The Left’s fellow travelers in the media readily and enthusiastically pass on the carefully-crafted stories, giving them the gloss of ‘truth’. These lies from the pits of Hell have done more damage than any military could do – because they destroyed us from within.

Oh, and you need to read that article, The Revolution Was. Yes, 1938 was 80 years ago. But, we find ourselves on the doorstep of similar events.

We are about to suffer an economic catastrophe even WORSE than the Great Depression that allowed FDR to sneak in and take power. And, you can expect the next president – or even Donald Trump – to follow the same outline provided in that article.

Read the article for yourself. The language is 1930s American, so it can be a little tough to read in places. But, it shows us where the future lies. You might even want to download that free PDF copy of People’s Pottage.

Quotes From The Article

In fact, let me share some quotes to lure you into reading that article and even the book:

It took off from a revolutionary base. The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technique, it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do, it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake.


The end held constantly in view was power.


In the naive American mind the word “revolution” had never grown up. The meaning of it had not changed since horse-and-buggy days, when Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “Revolutions are not made by men in spectacles.” It called up scenes from Carlyle and Victor Hugo, or it meant killing the Czar with a bomb, as he may have deserved for oppressing his people. Definitely, it meant the overthrow of government by force; and nothing like that could happen here. We had passed a law against it.


Revolution in the modern case is no longer an uncouth business. The ancient demagogic art, like every other art, has, as we say, advanced. It has become in fact a science — the science of political dynamics. And your scientific revolutionary in spectacles regards force in a cold, impartial manner. It may or may not be necessary. If not, so much the better; to employ it wantonly, or for the love of it, when it is not necessary, is vulgar, unintelligent, and wasteful. Destruction is not the aim. The more you destroy the less there is to take over. Always the single end in view is a transfer of power.


The scientific study of revolution included, of course, analysis of opportunity. First and always, the master of revolutionary technique is an opportunist. He must know opportunity when he sees it in the becoming; he must know how to stalk it, how to let it ripen, how to adapt his means to the realities. The basic ingredients of opportunity are few; nearly always it is how they are mixed that matters. But the one indispensable ingredient is economic distress, and, if there is enough of that, the mixture will take care of itself.

And then, Garet Garrett lays out the process, one that should be familiar to you:

They set themselves down in sequence as follows:

The first, naturally, would be to capture the seat of government.

The second would be to seize economic power.

The third would be to mobilize by propaganda the forces of hatred.

The fourth would be to reconcile and then attach to the revolution the two great classes whose adherence is indispensable but whose interests are economically antagonistic, namely, the industrial wage earners and the farmers, called in Europe workers and peasants.

The fifth would be what to do with business — whether to liquidate or shackle it.

The sixth, in Burckhardt’s devastating phrase, would be “the domestication of individuality” — by any means that would make the individual more dependent upon government.

The seventh would be the systematic reduction of all forms of rival authority.

The eighth would be to sustain popular faith in an unlimited public debt, for if that faith should break the government would be unable to borrow; if it could not borrow it could not spend; and the revolution must be able to borrow and spend the wealth of the rich or else it will be bankrupt.

The ninth would be to make the government itself the great capitalist and enterpriser, so that the ultimate power in initiative would pass from the hands of private enterprise to the all-powerful state.

Each one of these problems would have two sides, one the obverse and one the reverse, like a coin. One side only would represent the revolutionary intention. The other side in each case would represent Recovery — and that was the side the New Deal constantly held up to view. Nearly everything it did was in the name of Recovery. But in no case was it true…

Okay, I’ve probably quoted too much of that article. But, I hope that this helps you see how closely this resembles where we are now. FDR did not complete his ‘revolution’. But, he accomplished so much of it, that we find ourselves unable to roll back what that foul fiend from Hell accomplished. And, I believe that the coming Greatest Depression will finish the job.

Will you be ready for this?


A Note About Last Week’s Article

Chris wrote to update us on that shipment of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system to Syria. I had said that it was Russia’s most recent version of that system, the S-300V4, and several authoritative reports at that time indicated that it was that version.

It now appears that it is a lesser version. Or, maybe not. We’re not sure.

Here is an interesting article laying out some interesting observations:

Moscow’s S-300 Double Bluff in Syria

Russia also might not have delivered 24 launchers to Syria. So, it sounds like a game is being played. Figuring out that game, is going to be hard – even dangerous.

As a part of his comment, Chris mentioned ‘maskirovka’ (маскировка), which is Russian for ‘disguise’, but is also the word used to describe Russian Military Deception. It even has its own Wikipedia page:

Russian military deception

Over the coming weeks and months, I think that we’re going to find out what Russia was up to, in that delivery/not-delivery of the S-300. By then, it will probably be too late for any of us to do anything about it.

Thanks, Chris!

Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

U.S. Childbirth: Almost Half of U.S. Births Happen Outside Marriage, Signaling Cultural Shift

As an American, born to a family that helped found the United States. We fought in the Revelution. My family paid its price, in blood, on every battlefield, in every war. And, we fought for an ideal called ‘America’. Truth. Honesty. Opportunity. Sacrifice. Integrity. Laying a foundation for future generations.

And now, I find that all of this was created so that we could churn out children born out of wedlock.

Forty percent of all babies today, are ‘persons of uncertain parentage’. That is my euphemism for the word bastard. And, I refrain from using the term ‘bastard’, even though it is the most accurate word for those born to mothers who are not married.

Please understand that the word ‘bastard’ wasn’t just a derisive term for those born to women who were having sex outside of marriage. In fact, we identify someone as a ‘bastard’ because they BEHAVE like bastards.

Children learn honor, respect and integrity from their fathers. Yes, there are mothers who often teach this, but they are not the best teachers for this vital part of character. Men understand these things far more naturally. This is why, without fatherhood, a nation cannot stand.

Yes, we love our mothers, even if they are awful to us. Mothers have their own place in our lives, and they can build as well as destroy. A good mother is priceless. And, I know this from my own efforts to help those whose mothers destroyed them.

When the family is destroyed, the nation falls. Think about that when you see headlines like the one that we are looking at here. Think also about the fact that more than half of all marriages will end in divorce.

This means that many of the kids born into households with fathers, will lose those fathers. Hopefully, the reality of all that will sink in and help you realize that all the violence, dishonesty and corruption has its roots in part, due to the lack of fatherhood.

America is a nation without a father.

Armed looters target homes devastated by Hurricane Michael in Florida |

And, here we go with an example of what I’m talking about.

In Japan, after the big Tsunami, you didn’t have looting.

Here in Taiwan, after a typhoon as big as this hurricane, we don’t worry about looters. And, there are still places in both Taiwan and Japan where people have never locked their doors and don’t know where their keys are, to do that.

Unfortunately, that has been changing, far too quickly.

China Trying to ‘Rewrite the Bible,’ Force Churches to Sing Communist Anthems

Mrs. Little told me something on Monday that made me do a search for the information in English. What her source told was unbelievable. But, it’s horrifyingly true.

Here’s a quote of what I found:

One way in which they plan to Sinicize Christianity, Fu said, is by “retranslating” the Old Testament and providing new commentary to the New Testament to make socialist ideals and Chinese culture seem more divine.

“The plan made it clear that ‘Sinicization of Christianity’ means to change ‘Christianity in China’ into ‘Chinese Christianity,'” he explained. [The plan] emphasized that ‘the heart and soul of Christianity’s Sinicization is to Sincize the Christian theology,’ and even proposing to ‘re-translate the Bible or re-write biblical commentaries.'”

According to its latest outline, Fu said, a retranslation would be a summary of the Old Testament with some Buddhist scripture and Confucian teachings and new commentary for the New Testament.

“There are outlines that the new Bible should not look westernized and [should look] Chinese and reflect Chinese ethics of Confucianism and socialism,” Fu told The Christian Post after the hearing. “The Old Testament will be messed up. The New Testament will have new commentaries to interpret it.”

Fu added that the five-year plan advocates for “incorporating the Chinese elements into church worship services, hymns and songs, clergy attire, and the architectural style of church buildings.”

“This includes ‘editing and publishing worship songs with Chinese characteristics and promoting the Sinicization of worship music,’ using uniquely Chinese art forms, such as Chinese painting, calligraphy, inscription, and paper-cutting to express the Christian faith,'” he said. “[It’s also] encouraging churches to blend in style with Chinese architecture to local architectural style.”

It bothers me that this quote was buried in the middle of this article. This should be right at the top. The very first line. Yes, I know that it was in the title, but this any real Christian would be so outraged by this, that it would be front and center.

Also, Mrs. Little knows the person, Bob Fu, who made this quote.

Unfortunately, we Christians have already allowed foul and evil people to ‘retranslate’ the Bible. And, too few Christians are outraged by this.

No good man EVER changes the meaning of a word to fit his own ideas. Yet, even the King James Version did this. And no, I’m not kidding. And, it makes me furious, every time I run into those deliberate mistakes. They knew what they were doing, and did it anyway.

One example was to not translate ‘baptizo’ and anglicize the Greek word into ‘baptize’.


Because the Anglicans sprinkled, and new that they would be in trouble if they correctly translated the word into ‘immerse’, ‘submerge’, ‘dip’, or ‘dunk’. And yes, there are other errors, but that one should be obvious to anyone and everyone.

A more recent effort was to create this idea that there would be a pretribulation rapture. It is nowhere in the Bible, but people inserted it and taught it in their seminaries. And now, it is widespread. Almost everywhere.

And, most of those who don’t believe THAT lie, believe another lie, that we have replaced the children of Jacob, claiming that all the promises to the physical children of Israel are for us, and us alone – that the Children of Jacob will never again receive the eternal promises given to them. Such a vile and evil ‘Replacement Theology’ is just as bad and just as awful.

All of that should tell you that the Chinese government will get away with this. For some Christians in China. Hopefully, most Christians will reject these things, and house churches in China have been publicly condemning the move by the Chinese government.

I say all of this for two reasons:

Pray for our Chinese brothers and sisters. This is only the beginning of the persecution that they are about to suffer. It will be a truly awful thing that is going to happen to them. And there will be nothing for them to do, except endure.

This persecution is coming for us. As I have said before, the Antichrist system is being designed, built and perfected in China. What is happening in China, will be OUR future. WE will suffer as they are going to suffer. And, I’m afraid that many of us deserve the suffering that we will need to endure.

We did this to ourselves by adding our own corruption to the Bible. We built seminaries and staffed them with corrupt teachers. We allowed corrupt commenters write commentaries. We allowed preachers to preach ideas that were not in the Bible. We did all these things and laid the groundwork for our own destruction and persecution.

We dared to do this, and too few of us objected to it. How the Bible is translated matters deeply. It MATTERS that the Bible was deliberately mistranslated.

IT MATTERS, but we don’t seem to care.

God help us all.

China rewrite Bible at DuckDuckGo

Here is a DuckDuckGo search that will help you find more information on what China is about to do – and is doing now.

And, I would NOT have found out about this, if Mrs. Little hadn’t have been corresponding with someone in Chinese, here in Taiwan.

He’s ‘One of Us’: The Undying Bond Between the Bible Belt and Trump – The New York Times

This is depressing.

So, let me make something clear – very, very clear:


Is that clear enough for you?

He might be a better president than anyone since Reagan. He might even be BETTER than Reagan, since he did the one thing that Reagan refused to do – move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

But, does that make him good?

Does that make him a Christian?

Let me clue you in on a little secret:

Good men rarely become billionares. I know one – personally – who is a billionare and a good man. So, I’m willing to admit that there might be others.

Oh, and here’s another little secret:

Good politicians are just as rare as good billionares.

If you aren’t suspicious of Donald Trump, you are very, very foolish. A wise man is ALWAYS cynical about people with wealth or power. ALWAYS.

Again, Donald Trump is not a Christian. If you disagree, then I doubt that you know what a Christian is.

In fact, now that I think about it… I find it hard to believe that you can be a Christian and be so foolish as to believe that Donald Trump is a Christian. I guess that it’s possible to be that stupid and be saved, but the amount of ignorance and stupidity would need to be immense.

So please, stop it with the ‘Donald is a Christian’ stuff. He isn’t. End of story.

We’re Not Ready for the Attack That’s Coming – YouTube

When Nazi Germany wanted to defeat France, he went around the gigantic defenses of the Maginot Line. When Japan wanted to defeat Britain at Singapore, they went around the coastal defenses and went through the jungle. So, this is how our enemies have taken over America.

They went around our defenses.

There’s a quote that I have always remembered imperfectly. But, I did a new search and found it. It’s from a monograph writen by Garet Garrett, titled:

The Revolution Was

It was written in 1938, and it’s just as relevant now, as it was then. And, the first paragraph has been ringing in my ears for years:

There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.

The battle was lost long ago. What we’re doing now is a ‘fighting retreat’.

The Woman Who Wrote A Powerful Obituary About Her Sister’s Opioid Addiction Says The System Failed Her

And this… THIS …is another reason why we are being destroyed. This foolish woman is blaming the system.

I’m sorry, but it’s NOT the system. This fool of a woman believes that we all need a SYSTEM that doesn’t fail. Well darling, there is no SYSTEM that is failure-proof. And, only fools put their faith in SYSTEMS.

This is an example of how we are being destroyed by stories. People throw up all these stories all over us, trying to get us to focus on SYSTEMS instead of CHOICES.

When you make bad CHOICES you suffere consequences. That’s not a failure of the SYSTEM. That’s a failure of YOU. This ‘obituary’ was referred to as ‘brutally honest’.

Sorry darling, but brutal honesty would be to accuse the sister who died of making bad choices. And, her parents have a share in this, because THEY did not teach their daughter to make good choices.

I truly feel sorry for the suffering that addicts go through. If you are struggling with an addiction, you have my sympathy. But, I’m not helping you, if I claim that it is the SYSTEM that failed you. YOU faild YOU.

We all suffer an addiction to sin. All of us. As Christians, God gave us power over this addiction, but it still calls to us. It’s still entices us. And, when we cave in to this addiction to sin, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Stop telling stories.

Stop the lies that we are telling ourselves.

We chose, and now we pay.

Nevada’s famous pimp expected to win election despite death

And, just to make it clear that I am also disgusted with the Republicans, this pimp… this foul and evil man who is burning in Hell at this moment …was a Republican.

And, Joe Arpaio was there, with him, at his last party.

So, Arpaio is a dirtbag. ‘Sheriff’ Joe Arpaio didn’t need to go to that party, a party that was also attended by Ron Jeremy and Heidi Fleiss.

How can you vote for people who are merely ‘less corrupt’. Less corrupt is still foul and evil.

Gosnell: A story media wouldn’t tell, a movie everyone MUST see | Ben Davies – YouTube

Okay, this looks like a life-changing movie. This is a review, by a Christian, who is in the movie industry – although, I’m not sure where he is in that industry. But, this really sounds like something that you should watch, and something that all your neighbors, friends and family should watch.

And, the best part?

The mainstream media do NOT want you to watch it. And, this reviewer says that it’s one of the best ‘low-budget’ movies that he’s ever seen.

So, watch it, and tell me what you think. And, if I get a chance to, I’ll watch it too. Of course, I don’t watch movies, and I’m not sure that it’ll make it to Taiwan.


I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3
