Last week the Russians were absolutely definitely going to maybe invade Ukraine on Wednesday. It was official.
Unfortunately, Vlad ‘The Bad’ Putin failed in his duty to follow the script. But never fear, our dear leaders have chosen to give him a second chance. This time, they sent out Joe Biden to proclaim ‘war within days’.
To help with the war effort, Justin ‘Great Hair’ Trudeau has ordered his troops to put down the peasant revolt that has invaded Ottawa. Truck drivers and their bouncy castles defiled the honor of Canada and that could not be allowed.
Oh, and over 20% of Gen-Z consider themselves, LGBTQ.

The Madness Continues
I have spent way too much of my life studying war. Stories of heroism and the defeat of evil on the battlefield are inspiring to many young men, and I was one of those. I even toyed with the idea of joining the army, but since I was never very good at following orders, I gave that up as a bad idea. My younger brother was not so fortunate – even though his career commanding OPFOR units in Germany and an infantry company on the DMZ would seem to indicate otherwise.
Now, after spending 15 years in Jerusalem and 11 in Taiwan, I have a different perspective than my brash younger self. In fact, I find myself unable to enjoy war games that I would not have hesitated to play not that long ago.
Of course, the story of ‘good vs evil’ is still compelling. And, my time in Israel was an opportunity to live that struggle vicariously through the lives of friends and neighbors. (In addition to be shot at by the Tanzim.) But, I also saw the toll of pain and suffering that war brought upon everyone.
It was madness that caused the Arabs to attack Israel. It was madness that dragged America into Iraq. It was madness that launched World War 1 and World War 2. And, it is madness that is drawing the US into war with Russia.
I have been describing this madness for years – long before I launched this website. And, I don’t think that I’ll ever be able to stop – partly because I still find it so hard to believe that we are so capable of such insanity.
How is it possible for seemingly rational people to make such demented decisions?
This question is probably why there are so many conspiracy theories running around. It’s easier to see vested self interest than irrational incompetence. Having said that, there are conspiracies – just not as many as some theorists think.
The US Picks A Fight
So, as I watch the United States picking a fight with Russia, over Ukraine, I wonder about how much of this is sheer insanity and how much is ‘strategic self interest’. Since no one has provided a rational reason for why Russia would attack Kiev or how the US would benefit from a war with Russia, I am forced to assume utter madness.
The point was driven home this week with the speech at the UN Security Council by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. It was an astonishing work of pure fiction. And, it sounded a lot like another work of fiction that launched the invasion of Iraq – Saddam’s supposed ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’.
Historians will one day show that the invasion of Iraq was a big reason for the fall of the American Imperium. And, Colin Powell’s speech at the UN Security Council was how that war was launched. And, it was pure madness (and pure fiction).
Then, yesterday, Joe Biden stood up before the world and said that he was convinced that Vlad ‘The Bad’ Putin has decided to invade Ukraine and that his target is Kyiv (aka, Kiev). And, there isn’t a shred of proof that any of that is true.
In fact, I have yet to see one rational reason for why Putin would decide to start a war in Ukraine. He doesn’t want Ukraine. Ukraine doesn’t have anything that he would want. He already has enough corruption in Russia. He doesn’t need more.
Victoria Nuland (With Some Hillary Clinton)
So, we are left with the age old question, ‘cui bono’ – who benefits. And, I don’t see very much benefit, anywhere in this insanity. At least, not rational, strategic benefit. However, there are some irrational – but personal – benefit going around.
Does anyone remember Hillary Clinton’s infamous cackle over the murder of Muammar Gaddafi?
That was probably what caused her loss to Donald Trump. It was proof that she was an utter psychopath.
Well, there are other psychopaths in the US Department of State, and my ‘favorite’ is US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland. She orchestrated the fall of Victor Yanukovych, and here is a snippet of her part in the vile machinations that has killed so many in Ukraine:
Listen to how clearly she was calling the shots over every move in Ukraine. And now, she’s been promoted within the US State Department, by the Biden Administration.
She loves the game, and doesn’t care about how much suffering and death she causes.
Is she the only one at the heart of the madness consuming Washington?
Probably not. In fact, I’m pretty certain that there are plenty of psychopaths in Washington who are willing and able to do her job. The point is the madness at the heart of all this.
It’s pure evil and completely mad.
Justin ‘Great Hair’ Trudeau Strikes Again
But wait… there’s more.
As we watch the madness unfold in Washington, there’s quite a bit of insanity to the north. Canadian Prime Minister Justin ‘Great Hair’ Trudeau just escalated his war on truckers. The ones with the bouncy castles and the hot tub.
They were having too much fun, and there were too many people supporting them. So, he sent in his storm troopers to break up the protest.
It was an insane move by a politician who should know that it was a very bad idea. Instead of picking a fight, he could ‘met with the protesters’. Once he had a few photo ops of ‘hearing their grievances’, he could have ‘appointed a committee’. Appointing committees always sound great, without ever actually doing anything.
But, instead of making the smart move, he chose violence.
The question now is whether his obscene and draconian measures will succeed. In a more rational world, they would fail. But, our world is far less rational than ever before. And, this might mark a permanent loss of freedom for Canadians.
A Generational Madness
Part of the reason why all of this madness might succeed is the insanity of our society. I was shocked at how far America had fallen, when I returned to the US for a couple years, in 2006. And now, it’s worse.
Just look at this headline that hit my news feed today:
One in Five Gen Z Adults Now Say They Are LGBTQ
What utter madness. And, you don’t need to be a Christian to see it (although, it helps). Just a little knowledge of basic biology would be more than enough to prove how insane this is. And, there is no way that this will end well. In fact, it will end with judgment.
When Gog Comes
My book, When Gog Comes, is part of my own effort to push back against the madness – to get sleepy Christians to wake up to the judgment that is coming for all of us. We started down this road two hundred years ago, and we need to stop.
Gog is coming, and it is utter madness to ignore what the Bible says about that. If we ignore what the Bible says, we are condemning ourselves to the suffering and death that will arrive…
I’m still working on the audio version, but you don’t need to wait for me to finish that. Start reading now. If it makes sense, share it with others. If it doesn’t, let me know why. I will happily burn every copy, if you can prove me wrong.
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
