MY VIEW: Patriots Refuse to wear Masks that don't even work!

Masks are a symbol of slavery. I have been saying that for months now... The Deep State in collusion with the medical community has trashed the Bill of Rights, and your freedom!  We are right now slaves to evil- if we wear masks.   Just like Jews being forced to wear yellow stars!

Here is a great commentary by: by Jason Gold

The debate over mask wearing because of Covid has become a passionate and in some cases a positively combustible debate with mask shamings, assaults, even shootings by disturbed mask wearers on non-maskers.  If you're pressed for time and need to move on, here's my two cents, in brief:

1. Masks don't work. Unless you have a plastic face shield as part of a hazmat suit or a gas mask with its own oxygen supply, cloth, cotton, N95 masks are an exercise in futility. Why? Basic math. The porosity of all of these masks are on average 0.3 microns, in order to to allow you to breathe. The diameter of the Covid virus is 0.1 microns, so we have a failure on a basic math and structural level. These masks were not designed to stop viruses from getting in or going out but to stop bacteria which are about 1000 times larger.  Also, most of these have no seal around the face and nose which allows for breathing leakage.  Why do you think surgeons wear them in surgery? Not to stop viruses. It can't. It stops bacteria from the surgeon's mouth and nose from getting into the surgical field. The mask coupled with sterile room conditions and laminar flow ventilation is quite good at that. But viruses? Pfft.
2. If the virus is so deadly why aren't there hazmat cans for disposing of them with hand washing stations everywhere? If they work, why are prisoners being released instead of giving them masks? If they work, why do we need social distancing? If social distancing works, why do we need masks? Why are cloth masks, paper masks, kerchiefs, scarves, any old face covering acceptable? Why are the rates of infection sky-high in Muslim countries where at least 50% of the population (women) have perpetual face coverings?
3. Wearing masks for prolonged periods of time are detrimental to your health.  You are re-breathing your expelled CO2, you are re-breathing your own germs. You are causing your O2 saturation to drop, setting you up for a stroke, heart attack or just good old loss of consciousness, which is exactly what has been happening to drivers who wear them while driving and pass out.
4. Two recent studies, one in the New England Journal of Medicine and one in the British Medical Journal, as well as a soon to be published one from Holland, conclude masks have little if any value, with cloth worse than surgical.
5. Conclusion? Masks are useless. It's not about our health. It's about control. But try using these rational arguments on brainwashed Karens and Kens.

Now for the good stuff.

A few weeks ago, The Wabasha County Republican Party posted a meme on their FaceBook page (whether it was deliberate or a "hack" as they later claimed is debatable) that compared mask mandates to the infamous yellow stars that Hitler YMS, made the Jews wear in Nazi Germany. The image is below.


In addition Dane Hicks, owner and publisher of The Anderson County Review in Kansas, posted an anti-mask image of her, superimposed upon a picture of the Holocaust that showed the following:

 

 

The knee-jerk reaction of Jews to both of these was entirely predictable. The usual cries of racism, bigotry, anti-Semitism, insensitivity, etc. rang out across the land. Both groups apologized, though I tend to believe Hicks' apology was more heartfelt.  And yes, I agree that the use of the Holocaust imagery was somewhat over the top. Yet, while the Jews were busy being offended, they missed the entire point of both these incidents.  Masks via forced mandate with no science to back it up, IS the new yellow star. The parallels could hardly be more striking.


There is a particular lesson that can be learned from Hitler's strategy to have have Jews in Nazi Germany wear the infamous yellow stars. Hitler could not just wipe out the Jews right away. He had a three pronged strategy. Denigrate, dehumanize and then destroy. Of course this was after he first took away all the guns from the population, disbanded all local police, destroyed historical statues and had book burnings.  Sound familiar? But I digress. Once the Jews were no longer considered human, it would be much easier to find his willing accomplices in the German population. The yellow star was part of that strategy. It showed that Jews were property, cattle, sub-human, untermenschen, to be done with as the state pleased.

Mask-wearing is the product of illegal and unconstitutional mandates imposed by power-hungry (and in some cases, elder killer mass murderers in the Hitlerian tradition), elected officials (almost all Democrats) in order to keep people controlled, docile, fearful and obedient.  This is a prime example of obedience conditioning that history shows is necessary for the imposition of any Marxist/socialist/fascist agenda. If challenged on a federal level all the mandates would be tossed for lack of scientific evidence as well as imposition of freedoms. But in the meantime, acceptance means you have been sub-humanized, you are not in control of taking care of your own health, you are a victim of a capricious act on your freedom and on your individuality. You are property. You are less than human.

So why the Yellow Star analogy of masks if it applies to non-Jews as well? NY was the epicenter of the virus nationwide with more than 40% of the cases occurring here and more than 30,000.00 dead due to gross negligence and incompetence of the government as well as criminally-negligent homicide on the part of Governor Cuomo as it relates to the nursing homes.  The initial high-profile cases occurred in the Jewish communities of New Rochelle, the 5 Towns, the epicenter of the modern orthodox communities. Modern Orthodox, Reform, and Conservative Jews have a particular pathology of trying to be "more Catholic than the pope" and be good citizens and listen to the government, no mater how outrageous or illegal the mandates because they are concerned of what the goyim think. So they have rushed to embrace mask wearing, social distancing, fracturing of the shuls and embracing the Zoom life to be good citizens of the state, or good sheeple. 

The Jewish communities in the tri-state area absorbed a heavy blow from Covid because of our density, our social interactivity and interconnectedness which spread an engineered virus more infectious than the flu, but with the same lethality profile.  However, despite the media's best effort to bury the story, the herd immunity rate in NY by now, is north of 70% as a report last month showed. Which means all of this, masks, social distancing the lockdown is now a complete sham.

People ask me, "Ok what's the big deal? It's only a mask, right? It makes people feel better, like they have some protection. Thats a good thing, right?" Sure, but remember it was a lockdown to protect all the elderly and save the ventilators until the bad modeling and faulty data showed it wasn't. It was just two weeks. Until it wasn't. It was to flatten the curve. Until it wasn't. Then it was until there were no new cases. Until it wasn't. Now its some states (Democrat, of courseI) saying they can’t open till there's a vaccine. What's next? "Health Passes" that allow freedom of travel only if someone is vaccinated or can prove immunity? How did it go in Nazi Germany? “May I see your papers, please”?  If the masks are the yellow stars then mandatory vaccines just might be the tattoo.  Compliance is not a virtue. It’s cowardice. Wake up folks, realize you are being played or here is a meme that might turn out to be prescient.

'Take off your mask!': Florida protesters sporting MAGA t-shirts and hats defy COVID rules and march maskless through Target store

Social media footage shows a small group of anti-maskers (left) marching through the aisles of the retailer's store (inset) on North Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The group, many of them sporting 'Make America Great Again' t-shirts and hats, are seen shouting 'take it off' at other customers. Footage outside the store showed a man ranting about being 'sick and tired of having to wear one of these things' and throwing a mask to the ground (right). One anti-masker present Cristina Gomez first hit headlines in June when she claimed people wearing masks were 'obeying the devil's laws'. Florida does not have a statewide mask mandate but several businesses - including Target - have rules requiring customers and staff to sport face masks. A total of 196,752 Americans have been died and 6.6 million have

 

 


The foolishness of those mask wearers

“By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.” — Russell Blaylock, MD

Bob Barney

image from external-content.duckduckgo.comI get a laugh out of the people wearing masks, because big brother told them too.  You see them wearing them while driving their cars - alone, you see them walking in the woods, or on a country road- alone, and you see them in their own homes - alone!  America has truly become a dumbed down nation, as the Bible predicted when God said, "My people die because of lack of knowledge.". That's more true than ever ! Your God tells you in His personal book written for you, called the Holy Bible, that you are dying, because of your lack of knowledge!  Our leaders have failed us. In fact, the despise us! They want to enslave us, and forcing us to wear a mask, they know that by doing so, we will actually become sicker, and even more dependent on them! They know that masks kill, that's why we keep seeing pictures of these leaders caught without wearing them!  WAKE UP AMERICA!  Your election was stolen, your private information has been stolen, and your health is being taken away by a lie.  You have become slaves!

Global Research published findings that should shock you!  It should make you mad, mad enough to want to kill those doing this to your loved ones.  Make no mistake, your leaders want to kill you!

Researchers found that about a third of the workers developed headaches with use of the mask, most had preexisting headaches that were worsened by the mask wearing, and 60% required pain medications for relief. As to the cause of the headaches, while straps and pressure from the mask could be causative, the bulk of the evidence points toward hypoxia and/or hypercapnia as the cause. That is, a reduction in blood oxygenation (hypoxia) or an elevation in blood C02 (hypercapnia).

It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as much as 20%, which can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of course, can lead to death.

A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask.   Some had pre-existing headaches that were precipitated by the masks. All felt like the headaches affected their work performance.

Unfortunately, no one is telling the frail elderly and those with lung diseases, such as COPD, emphysema or pulmonary fibrosis, of these dangers when wearing a facial mask of any kind—which can cause a severe worsening of lung function. This also includes lung cancer patients and people having had lung surgery, especially with partial resection or even the removal of a whole lung.

 

The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome.

People with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at a further risk from prolonged hypoxia as the cancer grows best in a microenvironment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers.  Repeated episodes of hypoxia have been proposed as a significant factor in atherosclerosis and hence increases all cardiovascular (heart attacks) and cerebrovascular (strokes) diseases.

There is another danger to wearing these masks on a daily basis, especially if worn for several hours. When a person is infected with a respiratory virus, they will expel some of the virus with each breath. If they are wearing a mask, especially an N95 mask or other tightly fitting mask, they will be constantly rebreathing the viruses, raising the concentration of the virus in the lungs and the nasal passages. We know that people who have the worst reactions to the coronavirus have the highest concentrations of the virus early on. And this leads to the deadly cytokine storm in a selected number.

It gets even more frightening. Newer evidence suggests that in some cases the virus can enter the brain. In most instances it enters the brain by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves), which connect directly with the area of the brain dealing with recent memory and memory consolidation. By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain.”

Manufactured Pandemic: Testing People for Any Strain of a Coronavirus, Not Specifically for COVID-19

The following is from a medical forum. The writer, who is a widely respected professional scientist in the US, prefers to stay anonymous, because presenting any narrative different than the official one can cause you a lot of stress in the toxic environment caused by the scam which surrounds COVID-19 these days. – Julian Rose

FROM: www.globalresearch.ca PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK FOR MORE RESEARCH!

I work in the healthcare field. Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus. There are no reliable agencies or media outlets for reporting numbers of actual COVID-19 virus cases. This needs to be addressed first and foremost. Every action and reaction to COVID-19 is based on totally flawed data and we simply can not make accurate assessments.

This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most Coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel Coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.

The ‘gold standard’ in testing for COVID-19 is laboratory isolated/purified coronavirus particles free from any contaminants and particles that look like viruses but are not, that have been proven to be the cause of the syndrome known as COVID-19 and obtained by using proper viral isolation methods and controls (not the PCR that is currently being used or Serology /antibody tests which do not detect virus as such). PCR basically takes a sample of your cells and amplifies any DNA to look for ‘viral sequences’, i.e. bits of non-human DNA that seem to match parts of a known viral genome.

The problem is the test is known not to work.

It uses ‘amplification’ which means taking a very very tiny amount of DNA and growing it exponentially until it can be analyzed. Obviously any minute contaminations in the sample will also be amplified leading to potentially gross errors of discovery.

Additionally, it’s only looking for partial viral sequences, not whole genomes, so identifying a single pathogen is next to impossible even if you ignore the other issues.

The Mickey Mouse test kits being sent out to hospitals, at best, tell analysts you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. It may tell you the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – say the huge family of coronavirus. But that’s all. The idea these kits can isolate a specific virus like COVID-19 is nonsense.

And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.

If you remember the PCR works by amplifying minute amounts of DNA. It therefore is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a few virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.

If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnosis.

And coronavirus are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have covi DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well or sick with some other pathogen.

Do you see where this is going yet? If you want to create a totally false panic about a totally false pandemic – pick a coronavirus.

They are incredibly common and there’s tons of them. A very high percentage of people who have become sick by other means (flu, bacterial pneumonia, anything) will have a positive

PCR test for covi even if you’re doing them properly and ruling out contamination, simply because covis are so common.

There are hundreds of thousands of flu and pneumonia victims in hospitals throughout the world at any one time.

All you need to do is select the sickest of these in a single location – say Wuhan – administer PCR tests to them and claim anyone showing viral sequences similar to a coronavirus (which will inevitably be quite a few) is suffering from a ‘new’ disease.

Since you already selected the sickest flu cases a fairly high proportion of your sample will go on to die.

You can then say this ‘new’ virus has a CFR higher than the flu and use this to infuse more concern and do more tests which will of course produce more ‘cases’, which expands the testing, which produces yet more ‘cases’ and so on and so on.

Before long you have your ‘pandemic’, and all you have done is use a simple test kit trick to convert the worst flu and pneumonia cases into something new that doesn’t actually exist.

Now just run the same scam in other countries. Making sure to keep the fear message running high so that people will feel panicky and less able to think critically.

Your only problem is going to be that – due to the fact there is no actual new deadly pathogen but just regular sick people, you are mislabeling your case numbers, and especially your deaths, are going to be way too low for a real new deadly virus pandemic.

But you can stop people pointing this out in several ways.

1. You can claim this is just the beginning and more deaths are imminent. Use this as an excuse to quarantine everyone and then claim the quarantine prevented the expected millions of dead.

2. You can tell people that ‘minimizing’ the dangers is irresponsible and bully them into not talking about numbers.

3. You can talk crap about made up numbers hoping to blind people with pseudoscience.

4. You can start testing well people (who, of course, will also likely have shreds of coronavirus DNA in them) and thus inflate your ‘case figures’ with ‘asymptomatic carriers’ (you will of course have to spin that to sound deadly even though any virologist knows the more symptom-less cases you have the less deadly is your pathogen.

Take these 4 simple steps and you can have your own entirely manufactured pandemic up and running in weeks.

They can not “confirm” something for which there is no accurate test.

 


10 Things Americans Should Stop Taking for Granted

image from m.media-amazon.comAmerica has been so successful for so long that we have become a soft, decadent, and complacent nation. We’re like the wealthy family of some long-dead industrialist, arguing about who gets to use the private plane this weekend, while the company he built that provides us our extravagant lifestyle falls to pieces around us. Our government is big, expensive, and incompetent. Our education system is mediocre. Our media is little more than a for-profit propaganda network and the American people are increasingly immoral, godless, and degenerate. We ignore those inconvenient facts because it’s more pleasant to focus on our powerful military, our increasingly borrowed wealth, and the achievements of corporations that we by turns, take pride in and despise.

Throughout history, great nations, regional powers, and empires have risen to prominence and have either been greatly diminished or have disappeared entirely. Over the last few decades, since America became overly confident of our eternal place in the sun after the fall of the Soviet Union, we have started treading the same path of those fallen countries. We can always change direction, but there are no guarantees that we will. Nor is there any guarantee that the disasters listed in this article will come to pass in the lifetimes of anyone reading them. What we have often seen in history is that a once-great nation that slides backward can often continue on for quite a while before some outside shock proves too great for it to absorb in its weakened state. In our case, it’s entirely possible that a debt-driven economic collapse will be that shock and that it will happen in the next decade or two, but no one truly knows exactly the time and place that sort of nightmare may occur.

What we can say is that an awful lot of very smart people are alarmed by what’s going on in this country and have grave doubts about where we’re headed. Are they wrong? Are they right? Are they right, but worrying too soon? We don’t know yet, but what you are about to see are not unreasonable worries. They are things that could happen to you or your children. Perhaps if enough of us see these possibilities and do something about them, this country can remain a beacon of light and hope instead of shaking itself to pieces.

1) That there will be no revolution/secession/civil war: The level of hatred between many Americans on the Left and Right is growing so intense that it’s quite easy to see the country splitting into pieces. That could be peaceful or violent, relatively isolated (California or Texas splitting off) or widespread, messy, or relatively clean. The only thing that is sure is that we’d be better off together as a nation than separating, but at some point, it seems quite possible we’ll decide that we just can’t live together anymore.

2) That America will always be a Republic: An increasingly incompetent government that can’t keep law and order, reduced confidence in the fairness of our elections, and the military being one of the most trusted institutions in America sounds like a recipe for a dictatorship. Hopefully, it will never happen, but they probably said the same thing in Rome before Caesar took over.

3) That Social Security and Medicare will continue on in their current form: Contrary to the comforting, but false claims you may be hearing from D.C. and the media, we are currently paying for Medicare and Social Security with borrowed foreign money. At some point, we will no longer be able to get that cheap foreign money and we will have to dramatically cut our two biggest budget items, Social Security and Medicare to make up for it.

4) That a nuclear bomb will never go off in America: Fear of America’s nuclear arsenal may be enough to discourage any nation from firing a nuclear missile at us, but if Iran is allowed to get nuclear weapons, we are guaranteed to see nukes spread all across the Middle East. Once we have a large enough number of potentially hostile nations, unstable nations, or nations with anti-American factions in them, we could see nukes carried across our porous borders by terrorists into our country from parts unknown. There are a lot of groups that would nuke America if they thought they could get away with it and we could be a decade or two away from there being a real possibility of that happening.

5) That this will always be a rich nation: It’s increasingly easy and practical for rich people and large corporations to relocate to other nations. As law and order erode, taxes increase, regulations multiply, hostility towards the wealthy escalates, and our school system produces more and more students indoctrinated in social justice, whining, and entitlement instead of reading, writing, and mathematics, we may see a lot of money flee our shores, leaving behind a much poorer nation.

6) That the majority of our population will be able to work: As advances in AI make the workplace more efficient, automation replaces people and we continue to allow massive numbers of unskilled laborers to cross our border at will, we may start to see larger and larger groups of the population that are legitimately unable to find jobs. This rather famously happened in ancient Rome for different reasons. It led to violent, increasingly dangerous mobs that had to be placated with bread and circuses. It’s not hard to see us in the same position.

7) Low taxes on the middle class: Contrary to all the “why aren’t the rich paying their fair share” rhetoric you may hear, Americans actually have the most progressive tax system in the Western world. Because the rich have the ability to move and the influence to have loopholes put in the law, it would be difficult to loot an even higher percentage of their wealth than we already do. What that means is that the American middle class will have to be taxed at a MUCH HIGHER rate in the future than they are today as part of an effort to keep the deficit under control. Eventually, it’s always the middle class that ends up paying for big government. Given that we have the biggest big government in the history of big governments, if you’re a middle-class American, do the math on what your tax bill is going to look like in the coming years.

8) That you can just go to the store and buy what you want: During the early days of the coronavirus, “just-in-time shipping” failed us. When we saw massive increases in demand for things like masks, toilet paper, and hand sanitizer, we saw shortages that lasted for months in some cases. Now, imagine the same situation, except with food in general. Could that happen? Absolutely. Something like an EMP that went off in the atmosphere, solar flares, or some sort of surprising climate disruption could lead to massive shortages of food. Given the limited number of refineries in the U.S. and the weakness of our central power grid, it’s not unimaginable that we might have to go for quite a while without fuel or power at some point. If you’re assuming that you can just pop into Wal-Mart and get anything you want, you may be in for a big surprise one day.

9) That the government won’t try to confiscate your guns: It seems bizarre that anyone would still be seriously discussing gun control after left-wing rioters were allowed to run wild all summer with minimal police interference, but here we are. A real attempt at gun confiscation would be likely to lead to widespread bloodshed and violence, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of people on the Left advocating it.

10) That no one will prey on your children with the blessing of the state: Today, there are a lot of people on the Left pushing transsexualism on children. Some of them even go so far as to advocate pedophilia. I don’t think it would shock anyone at this point to see liberals openly calling for relationships between adults and children or calling for mandatory hormone blockers for children so they can “choose their gender” when they grow older even as they deride everyone that opposes these things as bigots. Unless they start seeing more political blowback for the bizarre policies they are already advocating, you can bet liberals will go further and further down this dark and bizarre path.

Patriots Fight Back-Armed Protestors March on State Capitals

America braces for inauguration trouble as armed MAGA protesters gather at state capitols

Armed supporters of President Trump descended on state capitals nationwide on Sunday as members of the anti-government Boogaloo Boys brandished semi-automatic weapons near the Michigan State Capitol while Washington, DC, was turned into a fortress. The nation's capital looks like a military zone with National Guard and local police setting up checkpoints and a huge perimeter outside the US Capitol building just 10 days after it was stormed by MAGA rioters. A 22-year-old Virginia man was arrested for possession of three high capacity magazines, 37 rounds of unregistered ammunition, and a Glock gun near the US Capitol on Sunday while a Connecticut woman was detained for impersonating a police officer as the nation's capital remains on high alert in the days leading up to Wednesday's inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Meanwhile, Starbucks has shut down all of its New York City locations on Sunday - reportedly for fear of protests - while security was beefed up around State Capitols nationwide.

Today starts the 11th Month in God's Year

By Bob Barney

Today is the 11th "New Month" Day of the year, and I find only 2 mentions of this month in the Bible. It's Jewish name is pagan. From Wikipedia: Shevat (Hebrew: שְׁבָט, Standard Šəvat Tiberian Šəvāṭ ; from Akkadian Šabātu) is the fifth month of the civil year starting in Tishre (or Tishri) and the eleventh month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar starting in Nisan. It is a month of 30 days. Shevat usually occurs in January–February on the Gregorian calendar. The name of the month was taken from the Akkadian language during the Babylonian Captivity. The assumed Akkadian origin of the month is Šabātu meaning strike that refers to the heavy rains of the season. In Jewish sources the month is first mentioned by this name in the bible book of prophet Zechariah (Zechariah 1).

the Bible translates the beginning of each months, as New Moon festivals, because at one time, before the flood, new moons started the new months. This isn't true today, so the best translation would be New Month Festivals....  This month is the

 I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today.  It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God.  To read more about God's Calendar click here .  There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon.  That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.

The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.

Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.

Calendar.1

The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

Inauguration Day 2021: Tough security measures at US Capitol

Tough security measures are being put in place across Washington DC ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration next Wednesday. The security measures are now being implemented earlier than scheduled in the wake of last week's attack on the US Capitol by Trump supporters. Trump has already declared a state of emergency in DC and authorities have revealed three separate plots to attack the Capitol ahead of the inauguration. Officials are promising extremely tight security around the entire capital region, including increased law enforcement, extra checkpoints, fencing and barricades. The public is now banned from entering the Capitol grounds and access to the Washington Monument is also now prohibited for the next two weeks. Public access to roads and restrooms on the National Mall, where crowds usually gather during inaugurations, may also be shut down this week.


9,000 children died in Ireland's brutal homes for unmarried mothers and babies run by the Catholic Church

9,000 children died in Ireland's mother and baby homes, report says

Nine thousand children died in Ireland's brutal homes for unmarried mothers and babies run by the Catholic Church in the 20th century, a damning report has revealed (pictured: survivor Carmel Larkin at a memorial in Co. Galway today, main; radio host Niall Boylan, bottom right; a mother and daughter pay their respects today, top right; babies at a home in Dublin inset top; and children at the Tuam home in 1924, inset bottom). In total, 15 percent of the 57,000 children at the 18 institutions investigated by the Mother and Baby Home Commission died between 1922 and 1998. The report published today said the homes 'provided refuge' for the mothers when they had nowhere else to turn and found that blame 'rests mainly with the fathers of their children and their own immediate families.' But the women faced appalling emotional torment at the hands of the nuns - forced to work scrubbing floors while being called 'fallen,' 'sinner', 'dirt' and 'spawn of Satan.' The Commission said that the high deaths rates among infants were 'probably the most disquieting feature of these institutions.'


The Plain Truth about the Officer Killed in the Capital Attack

You probably will not read this in most media outlets

source: The NY Post

On Thursday, Brian Sicknick, an officer with the US Capitol Police, died from injuries sustained during the storming of the Capitol building. Democratic leaders have presented Sicknick as a martyr of the #Resistance against President Trump and his dangerous supporters. 

Reality is more complicated.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described Sicknick’s death as a reminder of the need to “protect our country from all threats, foreign and domestic.” President-elect Joe Biden suggested that whoever backed Trump supports “an all-out assault on our institutions of our democracy.” The day’s violence, it seems, has become an all-purpose excuse to denounce and silence anyone not sufficiently anti-Trump.

Yet neither Biden nor Pelosi reckoned with an uncomfortable fact: Sicknick was a Trump supporter himself, as his friend Caroline Behringer announced shortly after his death. Far from sharing the views of the #Resistance, he had written letters to his congressman opposing Trump’s impeachment.

Like many Trump supporters who are now being censored, he believed that the system is fundamentally rigged in favor of a narrow elite. He had used fiery rhetoric, even called for regime change in America. 

The people who claim to honor Sicknick have elided these facts. Acknowledging them would undermine their effort to label the 75 million Americans who supported Trump as a domestic threat. Already, unelected Silicon Valley billionaires are using Sicknick’s death to justify censorship of views he expressed. Liberals are cheering the limitation of free speech. Leftists are applauding the exercise of corporate power. 

What could lead a man like Sicknick to support Trump? Must it be white supremacy, conspiracy theories or one of the other reasons usually cited by the media? 

What we know of Sicknick’s views tells a different story. Six months after graduating from high school in 1997, he joined the Air National Guard. He was deployed to Saudi Arabia and Kyrgyzstan. A series of letters he later wrote to the editor of his hometown paper give a portrait of his disillusionment with the leaders of the country he served.

In 2001, he described his attempt to gain help from his representatives in a dispute with his employer: “I have written a staggering number of letters to elected officials in both the state and federal governments. Only one state senator responded. This is one of the main reasons I will not be enlisting for a second term in the National Guard. I am no longer going to risk my life in hostile environments for a government that does not care about the troops.”

In 2003, Sicknick expressed his growing doubts about the War on Terror: “Our troops are stretched very thin, and morale is dangerously low among them. I’m starting to see an increasing trend of US soldiers asking, ‘Why are we still here?’ ”

He had come to believe that the United States was engaged in an “unnecessary war.” He denounced the “arrogant oil hacks that occupy the White House” and complained that the Bush administration had “its hands grasped firmly on the puppet strings of conservative senators.” His conclusion was stark: “I believe we should have regime change right here in America.”

In 2004, he poured scorn on Team Bush’s proposal to revive space exploration. Why go to space, he wondered, when “the health-care system is in shambles, and many Americans have simply given up looking for jobs”? 

His rage deepened after the release of the 9/11 Commission Report: “Proven intelligence failures regarding the war in Iraq and Sept. 11 are troublesome. Why is it that I doubt any jobs will be lost over this? Why is it that I doubt an impeachment would happen? Why do I think the issue will soon be forgotten?”

After serving his country and observing the workings of its government, Sicknick had come to believe that America is governed by a self-interested, unresponsive and unaccountable oligarchy. There is ample evidence to support his beliefs. Biden and Sen. Chuck Schumer, both of whom voted to authorize the invasion, have suffered no consequences for their folly.  Nor have the countless other supporters of the invasion who populate Congress, K Street and the think tanks.

The same people who launched a costly and failed war in Iraq now hope to humiliate and silence Trump’s supporters. But the concerns that led to the rise of Trump won’t disappear until our failed elites pay for their mistakes. 

When they smear Trump voters, they dishonor Officer Sicknick’s memory.

THE COMING "WOKE" AMERICAN THEOCRACY 

Here's an outstanding article by Simon Black that you may want to consider posting on your website:  
 
THE COMING "WOKE" AMERICAN THEOCRACY 

January 6, 2021
Bahia Beach, Puerto Rico

Over a two day period in late March of 1979, the people of Iran held a groundbreaking referendum to turn their country into a theocratic Islamic Republic where the religious leaders ruled supreme.

According to the wholeheartedly honest and incorruptible officials who counted the votes, 99.3% of the ballots were cast in favor of becoming an Islamic Republic.

(This bears a striking resemblance to Kim Jong Un winning a 2014 ‘election’ in North Korea with 100% of the vote, or when Saddam Hussein won re-election in Iraq back in 2002 with 11.4 million votes in favor, and 0 against.)

Within months, a new constitution was drafted, and Iran became a theocracy.

In a theocracy, the rules and rituals of the official state religion become pervasive in everything-- politics, education, business, news, entertainment, and even your daily routine-- regardless of whether or not you’re a believer… if you’re even allowed to be a non-believer.

In its own way, the United States (and much of the West) is rapidly becoming a theocracy where the woke leftist religion similarly pervades our daily lives.

We can already see it.

Just look at the education system, where schools and universities are indoctrinating young people into the virtues of Marxism, Critical Race Theory, and other woke pseudoscience topics. 

Children are taught to view themselves as oppressors or victims, and to judge themselves (and others) not based on the content of their character, but on the color of their skin. 

And even basic subjects are being radicalized. 

The United States was founded in 1619. Biology is intolerant. 2 + 2 = 4 “reeks of white supremacist patriarchy”.

Entertainment is dominated by these same ideals. You can’t even watch a basketball game anymore without having a woke agenda thrust in your face. 

And the mainstream media is clearly playing a major role in championing these principles to the public, including shaming of any intellectual dissent and burying information they don’t want you to see.

Big businesses have completely sold out to the wokists. Huge brands like Gillette wag their fingers at their own consumers, presuming that all men are sleazy, oppressive scumbags. 

Tech companies which once stood for the free-flow of information are zealously censoring content.

And most large companies are now overtly prioritizing top executives and directors based on identity characteristics like race, sexual orientation, and gender, rather than talent and integrity.

(Ironically they all sing the praises of the Chinese Communist Party, which is conspicuously exempt from abiding by these fanatical woke principles.)

The wokist religion is invading daily life as well. You must participate in the rituals-- raise a fist in solidarity, say the names, support the peaceful protesters, etc.

Any dissent is greeted with rage and cancellation. Daring to utter the words ‘all lives matter’ can result in you losing your friends, your business, and your reputation. 

You must use only the words that have been prescribed. For example, “women” has been replaced with “people who menstruate.” 

(And you must feign OUTRAGE on social media when someone uses the incorrect words.)

This 1984-style language cleanse has become so ridiculous that even the word “pedophile” is being quietly replaced with “minor-attracted person” so as not to ‘unfairly’ stigmatize… the pedophiles. 

This religion is also a major influence in government now. 

Elected leaders rush to show their constituents how pious and virtuous they are, whether they’re kneeling in solidarity for a photo opp, or changing their own rules to banish gender-specific language in the House of Representatives.

And we saw last year how government policy has started to become driven by the supreme religious leaders, i.e. American Ayatollahs who wield extraordinary, unelected power.

They control a perpetually outraged Twitter mob through hashtags and memes. They get to tell people whose life does and doesn’t matter… who’s an oppressor and who’s a victim. And they rake in hundreds of millions of dollars in donations with zero oversight or transparency. 

It’s important to point out that this new woke fanaticism is a polytheistic religion with many gods to exalt.

There are the cultural gods whose followers wage jihad peacefully protest against everything in their path-- monuments, buildings, and businesses run by infidel non-believers. 

But there are also fanatics who worship Covid… or more appropriately, they worship the FEAR of Covid. 

Theirs is a god of panic and outrage who demands strict obedience. 

And they follow the commandment to terrorize anyone who isn’t afraid or commits the blasphemy of asking a rational question about the disease or a vaccine.

There are also the Marxist gods, whose worshipers demand you make a routine sacrifice of your hard work to the failed altar of Communism.

And there are plenty of other gods in the mix, like the Green gods whose devoted followers at the World Economic Forum want to eliminate cows and condition humans to eat weeds and “drink toilet water” because of climate change.

It is a busy religion indeed.

Bear in mind that I’m not talking about the future here; this fanaticism has already taken hold in the Land of the Free, and much of the West. 

And given what’s happened over the past several days and weeks, there’s plenty of runway for those in power to hit the accelerator. 

I know there are a lot of readers right now that are nervous, even scared. Your fears are well founded… these are truly bizarre times.

Just remember that human beings tend to make bad decisions when we’re emotional, especially when that emotion is fear.

Don’t do anything rash. This is not a time to panic. It’s a time to plan.

To your freedom,

The Plain Truth Predictions on Donald Trump over the Years

Trump won the election - but lost His presidency- Here is why

By Bob Barney:

Right from the start of this piece, I want to make it clear that I think it is obvious that Democrats stole this past election by probably over 10-12 million fake votes, as well as trashing probably several million of Trump votes.  However, that is not the point of this article.  I have been warning for over 3 years that President Trump was setting up his own destruction by #1 His arrogance and #2 His pure stupidity of picking his team.   In a July 2019 story I posted called: Trump Could Be the Next George H.W. Bush??--I made the suggestion that Trump, although popular was following many of the same mistakes George Bush made in 1991 and 1992 listening to advisers that did not have his best interests in mind.  I also posted another article named:Ever-Trumpers- about moronic EVER-TRUMPER's, every-time a negative story comes out about him, they claim it's all a plan of Trump (citing the moronic Q-anon nonsense) and that he is winning everywhere.  They compare him to a God-like hero who never can make a mistake.  Trump's ego liked this very well as well.

Again in January 2019 The 'Deep State' Calls Are Coming From Inside Trump's White House my article started out ":  

    Reposted. Run Dec 18 2018

                        Forward by Bob Barney... With the appointment of another Deep State, Never Trumper Mick Mulvaney, Trump has again picked an insider that does not agree with the Trump agenda, and may actually work against him, maybe even helping himget impeached.  I know that there are people out there that thinks Trump is the smartest man in the world, but he is certainly not acting like he is, in fact he is acting against the interest of those who supported him IN FAVOR of globalist in many areas.  

Steve Bannon reportedly has told people he thinks President Donald Trump has just a 30% chance of completing his four-year term.  I starting to agree!

According to two of the sources, Bannon warned Trump several months ago about the possibility of getting removed from office via the 25th Amendment, prompting Trump to ask, "What's that?"

stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump's impeachment.

So that’s consistent. Like Pence, Pompeo has also denied being the author, but Bob Woodward’s book Fear makes numerous points from various members of Trump’s cabinet and staff which are also consistent with the op-ed.

  • According to Woodward’s book, Secretary of Defense James Mattis once said that Trump “acted like — and had the understanding of — a fifth- or sixth-grader.” The president’s poor understanding of global diplomacy occurred during a meeting about troops on the Korean Peninsula.

  • John Kelly called Trump an “idiot” who has “gone off the rails” to “Crazytown.”

  • In a bid to thwart a third world war, aides reportedly hid documents from Trump. James Mattis apparently once snapped at Trump that “We’re doing this in order to prevewww.rawstory.com/...nt World War III,” after he was asked why the U.S. is spending money to detect North Korean missile launches.  (This was part of the same exchange that led to former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson supposedly called Trump a “fucking moron.”)

  • Following the launch of chemical attacks against his own people, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad apparently almost became a target of U.S. assassination. According to Woodward’s sources, when the president heard news of the attack, he exploded and ranted “Let’s kill the f*cking lot of them.” Aides convinced him to instead opt for an air strike.
  • Several staffers have snatched paperwork from the Oval Office desk to protect the nation. In one case, an aide swiped a letter that would have withdrawn the U.S. from a trade agreement with South Korea that affects our ability to monitor North Korean nukes. “I stole it off his desk,” former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn said, according to the report. “I wouldn’t let him see it. He’s never going to see that document.”
  • Former staff secretary Rob Porter said he also stole documents off the Resolute desk. “A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really dangerous ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren’t such good ideas,” Porter reportedly said.

This all matches Scarramucci’s claim that there are people in the WH who think they have to protect the country from Trump.

“There are people inside the administration who think it is their job to save America from this president,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s "New Day."

“That is not their job. Their job is to inject this president into Americaso that he can explain his views properly and his policies, so we can transform America and drain the swamp and make the system fairer for the middle- and lower-income people,” Scaramucci continued.

Er, what?  And also, ewww.     MORE

All along the way, Trump has made decisions to surround himself with Never Trumper's, then gets mad when these people turn on him.  Those who supported Donald Trump like Rudy Guilani were overlooked when Trump put his cabinet together.  

IF TRUMP NAMED RUDY as ATTORNEY-GENERAL- NONE OF THE LAST 4 Years would have been the same!

Guiliani would have fired the directors of the FBI and all those behind the phony Russia-gate nonsense.  He would have indicted James Comey, Andrew McCabe and probably even Hillary Clinton!  

Why Trump dissed his own supporters for "Deep Staters" has boggled my mind since day 1!   Many of these have given interviews (especially on NewsMax TV) opening wondering why Trump kept picking deep staters, which he did!

In the end, Trump will not be president in Feb 2021, not because he didn't win the election, as I believe he did, but because in his arrogance, he ignored those he should have trusted, and trusted his enemies.

 

The Plain Truth on TRUMP.  warnings we gave for 3 years!

Over the years the Plain Truth ran quite a few articles on Donald Trump, and what to worry about.  I'll be plain... Trump won in 2020 by a landslide, but some of his own actions helped his "defeat!"

A History of our articles!  

 

Like King Nebuchadnezzar - Trump's Ego May Trip him up

First published almost two (2) years ago, and updated several months ago, I predicted that some of Trump's woes can be traced to his own arrogance.  Impeachment is a sham, but he lost some of his public support by his own actions and choices, especially this FAKE pandemic that he has been snookered by

Bob Barney

According to the Biblical book of Daniel, the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, who God called "His annotated king"  suffered from a mental illness, brought on by refusing to acknowledge God for his wealth,  lived in  isolated for seven years, in a state of insanity.  Why?  His ego!   Trump could learn for him.

Daniel on the Madness of Nebuchadnezzar

[4.29] At the end of the twelve months Nebuchadnezzar was walking about the royal palace of Babylon.

[4.30] The king spoke, saying, "Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?" 

[4.31] While the word was still in the king's mouth, a voice fell from heaven: "King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: "The kingdom has departed from you!"

[4.32] And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven years shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses." 

[4.33] That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws.

TRUMP's WORDS SIMILAR TO the ancient King of Babylon!

'No stopping them': James Dobson sounds alarm bell for America

James Dobson, the founder of the James Dobson Family Institute and the host of the "Family Talk" radio program, several times has expressed concern over a Joe Biden presidency.

He described Biden's declared support of transgender surgery for children as "lunacy." And he warned that the "promises made" by the Biden camp "should disturb every conservative Christian."

For example, Biden "has told us emphatically that he will bring an open season on the unborn child."

He will force Americans to fund abortions, implement abortion on demand nationwide without any limits, force Americans to fund Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion provider, and force Christians such as the Little Sisters of the Poor to fund abortions in their health insurance plans, he said.

Most nations around the world hold that the New Year begins on January 1.  This wasn’t always the case. In fact, for centuries, other dates marked the start of the calendar, including March 21 (The spring Equinox- which, according to God's Calendar, is the true New Year's Day!) and December 25. So how did January 1 become New Year’s Day? Well you can thank the pagan Romans first, and the equally pagan Catholic Church next!

45 B.C. New Year’s Day - When Jan 1 Became New Year's day

In the Bible, GOD MANDATED the New Year to fall on March 21st (The Spring equinox), mankind has never agreed with God Almighty....

SOURCE:  HISTORY.COM

image from images.slideplayer.comIn 45 B.C., New Year’s Day is celebrated on January 1 for the first time in history as the Julian calendar takes effect.

Soon after becoming Roman dictator, Julius Caesar decided that the traditional Roman calendar was in dire need of reform. Introduced around the seventh century B.C., the Roman calendar attempted to follow the lunar cycle but frequently fell out of phase with the seasons and had to be corrected. In addition, the pontifices, the Roman body charged with overseeing the calendar, often abused its authority by adding days to extend political terms or interfere with elections.

In designing his new calendar, Caesar enlisted the aid of Sosigenes, an Alexandrian astronomer, who advised him to do away with the lunar cycle entirely and follow the solar year, as did the Egyptians. The year was calculated to be 365 and 1/4 days, and Caesar added 67 days to 45 B.C., making 46 B.C. begin on January 1, rather than in March. He also decreed that every four years a day be added to February, thus theoretically keeping his calendar from falling out of step. Shortly before his assassination in 44 B.C., he changed the name of the month Quintilis to Julius (July) after himself. Later, the month of Sextilis was renamed Augustus (August) after his successor.

Celebration of New Year’s Day in January fell out of practice during the Middle Ages, and even those who strictly adhered to the Julian calendar did not observe the New Year exactly on January 1. The reason for the latter was that Caesar and Sosigenes failed to calculate the correct value for the solar year as 365.242199 days, not 365.25 days. Thus, an 11-minute-a-year error added seven days by the year 1000, and 10 days by the mid-15th century.

The Roman church became aware of this problem, and in the 1570s Pope Gregory XIII commissioned Jesuit astronomer Christopher Clavius to come up with a new calendar. In 1582, the Gregorian calendar was implemented, omitting 10 days for that year and establishing the new rule that only one of every four centennial years should be a leap year. Since then, people around the world have gathered en masse on January 1 to celebrate the precise arrival of the New Year.


A History of the New Year

A move from March to January

by Borgna Brunner

Forward By Bob Barney: The Bible makes it clear that God's New Year starts in the springtime and so, the first month of God's calendar begins in the springtime, probably on or near the spring equinox. The January 1st date comes from Caesar and Rome. There is nothing inherently wrong with it, but it isn't "Christ's" circumcision date! We should be aware of "why we do what we do!"

The celebration of the new year on January 1st is a relatively new phenomenon. The earliest recording of a new year celebration is believed to have been in Mesopotamia, c. 2000 B.C. and was celebrated around the time of the vernal equinox, in mid-March. A variety of other dates tied to the seasons were also used by various ancient cultures. The Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Persians began their new year with the fall equinox, and the Greeks celebrated it on the winter solstice.

Early Roman Calendar: March 1st Rings in the New Year

The early Roman calendar designated March 1 as the new year. The calendar had just ten months, beginning with March. That the new year once began with the month of March is still reflected in some of the names of the months. September through December, our ninth through twelfth months, were originally positioned as the seventh through tenth months (septem is Latin for "seven," octo is "eight," novem is "nine," and decem is "ten.
