I occasionally read those scripture thingies, and in so doing, get a feel for when the hammer is going to drop.  I get the feeling we have crossed the line on so many levels.

This will be our anthem when it goes down:


Here is something to think about along with everything else...:

Why do I even bother??  Most people just want to watch their reality tv show or their Sunday sports shows.  Collectively speaking, we deserve what we have coming.

He modified a driver's license or something.....  What many kids I grew up with did in order to get into the clubs as kids.  The double standard and hypocrisy makes my head want to explode......


If you love freedom and a good man, it would be good to get down there and show support.  Would it not be awesome if 50,000 people showed up to this??

I have to wonder about the Elders rising up to save the Constitution (or at least hold it inviolate in the face of tyranny).  I would LOVE to make a run down there and be part of this.  It would be one helluva drive for me - but I am impassioned enough that I may just consider it seriously......

He was one of the most Christlike men I've ever met and his wife and 11 children deserve our support. Will you do me the favor in passing the word to that group and call them to his funeral?
*****Memorial Services*****
We again thank everyone for your support and prayers during this time of mourning. We will be holding funeral services on Friday, February 5th in Kanab, Utah at our church house. The address is 1436 S. McAllister Dr. The visitation will be held at 11:00 am to 2:00 pm MST, and the service will be from 2:30 to 4:00 pm. We invite all those who would like to pay their respects to attend these services in memory of Lavoy Finicum; Husband, Father and Grandfather.

If you are in the area - please get the word out.  I hope they are ready for the crush of people.  This will be epic.  A statement against tyranny.


Those sunzaB's can go to hell.  This guy is innocent:

I would take a bullet for him.

They do not want THIS message getting out there.  They fear the natives are about to rise up.  Damn straight we will!!

Here is a prophetic statement - he knew they would eventually use deadly force to enforce fiat law: 

The end he calls these sunzaB's out.  I can now say that I love this man.  I need to hear no more - he is my kind of man.  A man's man.  Period.


Love this:

Gotta have some humor when things get serious.

Here is the TAS article indicating we could all best toast:

Here are some pics of their hardware:

Footage from actual on-the-ground spies in Russia, trying to save our skins:


All nations will flow to Zion (both in Jackson and to Utah).  It will be the only place that will NOT be at war.  The peace and order of the Saints will prevail there.

Here is the quotes that point out that, after the purge of the Lord's people in Utah, and those who come to carry out that work (Russians/Chinese/UN) are driven off by the Lord, then we will have a period of amazing peace and prosperity as the judgments and wrath are poured out by God on the rest of the nations.

Here are the quotes:

Teaching of Lorenzo Snow:
“The Saints will be preserved as Noah was. We should understand that the Lord has provided, when the days of trouble come upon the nations, a place for you and me, and we will be preserved as Noah was preserved: not in an ark, but we will be preserved by going into these principles of union by which we can accomplish the work of the Lord and surround ourselves with those things that will preserve us from the difficulties that are now coming upon the world, the judgments of the the Lord.” (5 Oct. Conference Report. pp. 4-5)
“ We shall cultivate our farms, and lay foundation for a time when the nations shall be broken up. Multitudes will then flee to these valleys of the mountains for safety, and we shall extend protection to them.” (14 Jan. 1872, Journal of Discourses 14:309)
“The wicked will destroy themselves, Our object is the temporal salvation of the people as much as it is for their spiritual salvation. By and by the nations will be broken up on account of their wickedness. The Latter-day Saints are not going to move upon them with their little army; they will destroy themselves with their wickedness and immorality. They will contend and quarrel one with another, state after state and nation after nation, until they are broken up, and thousands, tens of thousands, and hundreds of thousands will undoubtedly come and seek protection at the hands of the servants of God, as much so as in the days of Joseph when was called upon to lay a plan for the salvation of the house of Israel.” (14 January 1872, Journal of Discourses, 14:309)

And more from Orson Pratt (who acted as a PS&R - and used his gift):

My favorite quote by Orson Pratt from the article mentions "camps." I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. I've never heard this one:
"We shall go back to Jackson County. Not that all this people will leave these mountains, or all be gathered together in a camp, but when we go back there will be a very large organization consisting of thousands, and tens of thousands, and they will march forward, the glory of God overshadowing their camp by day in the form of a cloud, and a pillar of flaming fire by night, the Lord's voice being uttered forth before his army.
"Such a period will come in the history of this people, and when it arrives the mountains and the hills will be ready to break forth with a loud voice before the Lord's army, and the very trees of the field will wave to and fro by the power of God, and clap like hands. The everlasting hills will rejoice. . . . Will not this produce terror upon all the nations of the earth? Will not armies of this description, though they may not be as numerous as the armies of the world, cause a terror to fall upon the nations?
"The Lord says the banners of Zion shall be terrible. . . . When the Lord's presence is there, when his voice is heard, and his angels go before the camp, it will be telegraphed to the uttermost parts of the earth and fear will seize upon all people, especially the wicked, and the knees of the ungodly will tremble in that day." (In Journal of Discourses, 15:364)…/s/5306…


For all the fascists out there - let me stem the ridiculous comments before they take off......

It will be said that he "reached for his gun" - and you will listen to CNN like the rest of the sheep out there and will convict the guy.  He was shot in the gut by the first guy, he responded to that (STILL managed to keep his hands raised) and turned to get away from that and then he was shot in the face (probably by a trained marksman) to ensure that they got him even if he had a bullet-proof vest on.

On that drone, there was infra-red.  THAT will prove I am right.  Iraq over and out.

I remind you here, that it is better to err on the side of conservancy at this juncture.  I almost ALWAYS do.  I had someone I love very much, convict Joseph Smith of horrible things related to polygamy when I was much younger.  I warned them in no uncertain terms that they needed to give him all of the latitude possible before they convicted him.  They did not.  I have watched them struggle mightily since then.  Even these words, we will be asked to justify at some point in the future.  With the murderous acts of the past (including the native Americans), which side would I err on? 

Yep, you have your answer.  Those sunzaB's will pay.  Mark my words.  At the very least, I will offer my voice in his defense in an eternal court.  The rest of you pansies and wus's can go your own way to hell if you like.  That is your choice.

Iraq over and out.

Thursday, January 28, 2016


The trees and forests around the ambush area was crawling with them.  I will not rest until every one of them is brought to the attention of a heavenly court.  Guilt by association.

I refuse to work for anything to do with the military side of my company.  They make drones that have been used to kill countless women and children.  The murder of LaVoy was filmed using a drone - possibly one that carries hellfire missiles that would have turned that truck into a pile of twisted steel.  It is legal (in case you did not know), to use these missiles against a sovereign US citizen - so long as you can paint them as a terrorist in the court of public opinion.  When the tables are turned on members of this Church (we are considered fundamentalist terrorists by bummer's executive order), we can be hunted like dogs with these things. 

I work with a merc (mercenary) who was over popping people off in Iraq (another unjustified - offensive war - killing field) - done for the love of money. This fellow is disturbed - and his eyes are vacuous (appears to be nothing in there).  I wonder how many innocent men, women and children he was responsible for offing.  I just steer clear of him.  They made him a production lead out on the 747 line.

I have good friends who tell me of their friends who are over there as mercs.  One does not want to come home - he enjoys the fine paychecks and the "thrill" of killing people.  Our kids are being indoctrinated into this culture of killing via video games.  I have just about had it out with countless Young Men's presidents who invite the kids over to their houses to play these killing games.  They are clueless.  It is so messed up.  An entire generation will be lost - they will have all the war that they lust after here shortly.

There were snipers everywhere at Waco to do "clean up" for those who attempted escape.  The gubmint hates witnesses.  John Taylor found that out.  One of the best miracles and testaments to Joseph's prophetic utterance was the survival of Willard Richards that day in 1844.  He was a large man - and they did not manage to hit him, from within or from without the building.  Fortunately for him, God LOVES witnesses and usually, they come in pairs.  One of the most heinous acts on our soil, and there were people left over from it to trumpet the truth of it to the world.  In spite of the overwhelming force used in the despicable act......

Here are some pics for those who were too young to remember Waco:

Here is a pictorial of the rest of the victims.  Mostly women and children - that simply could have been starved out if they HAD to get them out of there.  We have soul-less cowards running our government.  Gads in every sense of the word.  And they will pay for what they have done to innocent citizens of this once-great nation, turned fascist stronghold.  Thankfully, Putin hates a fascist.  The last time he had to tangle with them, he was a little boy and they took out his mother, who was trying to resist them....  He will solve our problem for us.  The only one left that can get the job done in this miserable world.


I have featured this fellow's prophecy several times.  I like this graphic - nice work whomever put it together.

I would like to know the take on the 7 with the "?" after it after the finalization of the 50th, 50th Jubilee in 2017.  I think they were on to what I am just waking up to; which is the 7 years of badness after Christ comes to Jerusalem wherein God's wrath is poured out on mankind - AFTER the wrath of man is poured out on man (going on right now - and will continue after Russia hits the USA with nukes).

On THAT NOTE......  Just reading early reports that Russia is on full Defcon 1 - meaning that they are at full alert and launch ready for WWIII with their nuclear forces.  If so, it was good knowin' ya....

May they accomplish their mission to make DC a smoking hole in the ground.  Go Putin!!  May all the lying sacks of crap who infest our halls of power be in town for the event.....

Here is that graphic:




Sad part is, the family will be able to afford their ranch and they will own that county with the payout they will get from the tax payer's own funds.  How about making the chumps who pulled the triggers personally liable for murder?

Here is some more on the matter.

I swear, this is EXACTLY how the people of Nauvoo would have felt on a hot July afternoon in 1844.  In some ways, I hope for similar things (driving of the Saints), so that what comes next can happen.  For the trouble of the USA, one tenth of their men were tithed in the following civil action.  I just have a bad feeling that we are in the EXACT boat my ancestors were in back in the Nauvoo days - followed by the Civil War days.

A generation of vipers shall NOT escape the damnations of hell!

Here is something I placed on FB talking to a guy who is a tax collector:
I come from a long line of ranchers and farmers that go back to settling Utah and southern Canada. We think a certain way - and have little to no patience for government bureaucrats nor their puppet masters in the tax and land grab racket. 


I have to say, I have not gotten this worked up about anything since Waco, TX and the burning of the women and children there.  I was in college at the time and, at first, I was buying all the propaganda that was put out by the msm (disinformation I call them).  I was in the crowd yelling: "Crucify them.  Crucify them!"  And then their acts led to them being burned alive.  And yes, it most likely was from a tank from the US Army (read up on Posse Comitatus) injecting tear gas in that the fire actually started.

I have a lead at work who simply hates Mormons - and I tell him straight to his face that he does.  He is part of the charismatic christian (lower case "c"....) movement that feeds the missionary movement that shows up at places like Nauvoo, Hill Cumorah pageant and temple dedications to set us straight using bull horns and much falsehood about who we are (as Rome burns socially and spiritually in this country..... - idiots).  I got my fill of them last year at General Conference, then the pageants at Hill Cumorah and Nauvoo and the Indianapolis Temple open house.  Really? - do these people not have better things to do with their time?

So, a few times in the past year - there were oblique references that this lead (who is required by FAA mandate to audit me annually), holds my future in his hands.  IE, he could drop a bad audit, followed by another followed by dismissal.  Most people would be shaking in their boots.  I, of course, am not.  I told him to go to hell in no uncertain terms - and to go stuff himself.  Further, I told him that I want to get a layoff notice and then re-iterated that I pay my tithing to the LORD'S church - and that, if asked to weigh us in the balance, the Lord would chuck him to the curb before I would be, unless it were my time to go to other "assignments" in Canada, or where ever else.  I did not do it physically - but I got right back in his face using logic and testimony - and let him have it for attempting to dissuade me in my beliefs.

So, the thing that despots hold over people is their ability to earn money, their health, their lives, the safety and security of loved ones.  When you stop caring (at least too much) over this kind of thing, no one can sink their teeth or claws into you.  One of the tactics that has been used lately by this corrupt administration, is to have the tax people audit you for being "too conservative".  They can confiscate your "things", your home and place heavy burdens on the average person.  Most people insist on toeing the line that is laid down by their overlords.  I do not.  LaVoy realized that the most important thing he had was the ability to wake up each day and ride the fences of the ranch, feeling the breeze on his face, meeting the needs of his herd until the sun went down and he could then gaze up at the stars.  Having that taken away from his was worse than death to him.  He knew that if he put his hands behind his back, he would be dead inside.  At his age, he most likely would have died in prison for his "crimes" - a broken man.  He chose the better path.  One that will be annotated in history books for following generations.  His wife and 11 children will miss him, for sure.  But, better to miss their dad acting as a man, than a pitiful prison rat with no dignity.  We need thousands of others like that man to stand up and be counted.

Live free, or die!  It is the only way to go!

Here is a story (from the blog in Nov 2012) that helped to shape my attitudes about tyrants.  I hope you are able to feel the anguish I went through from this event:


Let me get this straight.  We have a rancher who has never fired a shot or hurt anyone, other than to temporarily take over an abandoned (for the winter) wildlife refuge building.  A man who honors his Priesthood, who has 11 children and a good wife who love him - and he is gunned down; shot in the face when he is illegally detained in a "traffic stop" that is more of an ambush than anything.

They KNOW there are two women in the car, and after killing LaVoy, they then spray hundreds of bullets into this vehicle??  After the Randy Weaver debacle where they killed his wife??  And paid out millions to the family - that by a gubmint that pays out to NO ONE and says sorry to NO ONE??

Did they HAVE to shoot up that truck, not knowing whether one of those (most likely armor piercing bullets) would find it's way into the bodies of one of those women?  If the truck were stuck in the snow and going no where, could they not have used a flash-bang grenade to knock out the windows and then use tear gas to bring them out without firing additional shots?  What kind of "man" would shoot up a vehicle filled with people that have never fired a shot nor hurt another single human being?  Is there any DOUBT that we DO live in a freaking POLICE STATE??  One where writing something like this might just get a real man into some kind of trouble or harassed by the very people that are taxing me into the ground and using those funds to supply the military they are using against the very deluded or disillusioned tax-payers that are supporting them?

Wow....  Just wow:

Are we supposed to fear our "government"??  Who are the slaves?  And who are the masters?

I will not rest until the whole mess of the corrupt @%$#$%# in DC are sitting in the bottom of a smoking hole.  They are an embarrassment to the Founding Fathers and those who love personal liberty.  President Benson was right.  We are in an awful situation.

You know, I spend a lot of time up in Canada.  And Canada has its problems, like any country - but the entire populace is not universally HATED by people all over the world because we run roughshod over countries like it is our right to go around beating the hell out of people.  I am ALMOST embarrassed to say to the people in Canada that I was born and raised in the USA - it is quickly becoming toxic to me - what we have done and are doing all over the world.  We are hated around the world - to the point that if this thing does not implode economically and I am allowed to travel, it will be done under Canadian passports and with Canadian lapel pins for the whole family.  I have been advised to do this by MANY seasoned international travelers who know that I am a dual citizen.  At the very least, I will be able to rest knowing that some French cafe worker is not hucking a loogie in my baguette and cheese sandwich.... because I am a blankety blank mericun.

This nation has sunk so low that, in spite of all of the badness it will incite for the very Russian people themselves, the Russians are going to unload some part, or all of their arsenal on us.  I suspect DC will be part of that - and then what will they say from the smoking ruins at the bottom of the pit they have dug for themselves??  Prophecy says it will happen - and we perch on the cusp of that.  This whole Burns, Oregon thing is just one more symptom of the sickness we have in this gosh-forsaken country.  He really is forsaking us - and we SOON will be left unto ourselves.  And it will NOT be pretty.


I find this to be straight up with what I know to be truth.  Told in first person.  I hope the truth comes out on LaVoy and this Oregon mess.

Do not piss off your masters - they tend to take things seriously.......  No dissent is allowed.

I HIGHLY recommend that this be watched if you love your country and the Constitution.

Two words:  Posse Comitatus


If you vote for the hag or support her in any way, you are part of the problem and have blood on your hands - so very much more than this:

The nice thing is that Jesus will take the trash to the curb.  I look forward to it.


Apparently, the world's biggest natural gas repository is letting loose and releasing massive amounts of methane/natural gas.  Natural gas is expensive to store, so the nat gas company in SoCal has pumped it down old oil wells into the ground under extremely high pressure.  Apparently, this gas has found its way to the surface and is escaping and making homes around the area unsafe and the people sick.

A MASSIVE ecological and social disaster.

No easy solution in sight other than to let it outgas.  Here is a video of the escaping gas:

Massive plumes.  I would not want to be the Public Relations Officer of that company.  Phew.......


This guy must read this whacked out blog of

It sounds like classic Wood Zone fodder - but, I just mentioned a few articles ago that we HAVE to have this sign before the Lord shows up in Jerusalem.  Minor details, minor details......

Great speculative stuff.  I hope and pray it comes soon - I am expecting the Lord in Jerusalem on the Wedding Feast this fall after the USA gets knocked out by a natural or man-made disaster that looms above us.  Russia will run with the baton that we hand off to them and then, whamo!!

Here is the LDS Mag article:



I know of one person who has met two individual Jewish families on their way to Israel.  Like many LDS who want to be part of the New Jerusalem, they are being moved upon by the Spirit to make overt moves to fill their roles.  There are so many different scenarios, that the promptings are quite varied.  Most of them are simply grounded in being ready with food and water in order to get thru the sifting (physically) event.

Here is some info that I came across.  Thanks, Patti!:

her call out to gather in Israel: “ "And I will be found of you, saith the LORD, and I will turn your captivity, and gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you back unto the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.” (Jeremiah 29:14)

Lori Palatnik, a leader in the American Jewish community, has just released a video in which she calls for American Jews to move to Israel, in fulfillment of the Biblical prophecy about the ingathering of the exiles. At the End of Days, Palatnik teaches, “Ultimately, the Jews are all going to move to Israel.”

Palatnik is a Jewish educator, author and speaker. In March 2015, Hadassah, the prestigious Jewish women’s organization, named her among the “Most Outstanding Jewish American Women of Our Time.”

The 3-minute video, first published on January 23, 2016, opens with a reference to 9/11 and “the scary prophets that talked about what happens at the End of Days.” In an interview with Breaking Israel News, Palatnik confirmed that she was referring to the Books of Isaiah, Jeremiah and Zechariah. More specifically, she spoke about the events of September 11, 2001 as a clear fulfillment of prophecy.

And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. (Joel 3:3)

Palatnik reflected on Biblical prophecy coming true in our lifetime. “After 9/11 was a huge wakeup call,” she told Breaking Israel News. “When they talk about pillars of smoke like date palms, it sounds like nuclear holocaust. When they were writing this, did anyone understand what they were talking about?”

And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the peoples that have warred against Jerusalem: their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. (Zechariah 14:12)

Her warning to American Jews is controversial. Palatnik told Breaking Israel News that, although this is the first time she’s said it publicly, “I speak about this all the time in my community. I talk that way to the people around me. I say, ‘Don’t get fooled. This is coming down. This is happening.’”

Palatnik is referring to the dangers of increased anti-Semitism. “There’s been a build up. Anti-Semitism is worse than before the Holocaust. In Paris you can’t wear a kippah on the street. Is that what we’re waiting for?” she asked.

Millions of American Jews do not yet see the danger about which Palatnik is speaking. Even if they believe that ultimately they will end up in Israel, concerns about making the adjustment are common. Additionally, most American Jews think they still have plenty of time.

Palatnik disagrees. “I think it won’t be long,” she warned. “As the winds of anti-Semitism and politics change, your child having a hard time adjusting to an Israeli school will be very minor compared to the need to get out, get out now!”

Acknowledging the difficulty some Jews will have adjusting to life in Israel, Palatnik quoted the rabbinic commentary on Proverbs 13:24 which teaches that, “God has given the Jewish people three gifts, but all of them must be acquired through suffering. These are: Torah, the Land of Israel and the World to Come.”

The way she and her husband raised their own children is an echo of her deeply-held beliefs, she said. “My kids have been told since they were very young, ‘America is not your home. We’re here doing a job for the Jewish people. Israel your home.’ I hope and pray that we’ll all end up there.”

Palatnik addressed the issue of the current dangers in Israel in her video presentation by saying, “It’s not that Jews there are going to be immune to any tragedy, but it’s clear, and I checked it with different rabbis, that you’ll be safer in Israel than anywhere else in the world.”

Asked to elaborate on this concern by Breaking Israel News, she responded, “I am a firm believer that God runs the world and He already knows when it’s your time. To die as a Jew in Israel, it has meaning. Does our life and death have meaning? I don’t want a meaningless death.”

Critics of Palatnik’s message claim that it’s wrong to scare Jews into moving to Israel. They feel that people should come to Israel for something, not because they are running away from something. In response, Palatnik told Breaking Israel News, “I strongly believe that people should make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) by choice. But you can’t stand by. Things are getting worse and worse.

“I’m not a prophetess, but the Almighty is starting to make it uncomfortable, because being comfortable seems to work against us. I don’t want to wait for that. I don’t think anyone should wait until they’re running for their lives.

“And it’s clear in the Torah that Israel is where God wants us to be.”

Come to Zion, come to Zion. Ere his floods of anger flow......  I started humming this spontaneously when I was reading over this post.  Amazing application to what we are seeing and will continue to see as the righteous are shepherded out of Babylon/Mystery Babylon to her home away from sin and error/corruption.


  1.  Israel, Israel, God is calling,
    Calling thee from lands of woe.
    Babylon the great is falling;
    God shall all her tow'rs o'erthrow.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion
    Ere his floods of anger flow.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion
    Ere his floods of anger flow.
  2.  Israel, Israel, God is speaking.
    Hear your great Deliv'rer's voice!
    Now a glorious morn is breaking
    For the people of his choice.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion,
    And within her walls rejoice.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion,
    And within her walls rejoice.
  3.  Israel, angels are descending
    From celestial worlds on high,
    And to man their pow'r extending,
    That the Saints may homeward fly.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion,
    For your coming Lord is nigh.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion,
    For your coming Lord is nigh.
  4.  Israel! Israel! Canst thou linger
    Still in error's gloomy ways?
    Mark how judgment's pointing finger
    Justifies no vain delays.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion!
    Zion's walls shall ring with praise.
    Come to Zion, come to Zion!
    Zion's walls shall ring with praise.

Before the Waco massacre occurred, they asked the media to leave.....  No one to record the atrocities.

They will burn in hell for what they are about to attempt.  This is part of the end of the Gentiles who have lost the moral high ground and it will be turned back to the seed of Lehi who have been purged and smitten by the now-corrupt gentiles.  It is coming full circle:

Members of the media are fleeing the #OregonStandoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge following warnings from the FBI that it is no longer safe to stay, suggesting a raid is imminent.
“It’s time for everybody in this illegal occupation to move on. There doesn’t have to be bloodshed in our community,” Harney County sheriff David Ward told reporters.
Lauren Martinez from Oregon’s KTVZ News Channel 21 posted two tweets, one said she was leaving because of the FBI warning while the other included video showing her pulling up to an FBI roadblock.
Other reporters were given similar warnings and told it’s time to head for safety.
.@OPB was told by FBI that we were on our own — essentially stuff is going down and we need to move.
In a series of tweets, Oregon Public Broadcasting’s John Sepulvado talked about his last interaction with one of the, as he calls them, militants:
“in the last interview i had with a militant before i left the scene, she told me that when the press left waco. everyone died.
“i asked her why she didn’t just leave with us. she said she had to stand against tyranny. i said how bad can it be, we’re having this convo.
“she told me if i didn’t get, i wouldn’t get it. i told her i hoped i saw her again, she asked for a hug, we hugged, we left. she stayed.”

Not that this has EVER happened before....:

Sound familiar anyone?:

And, is there any connection in the likeness of the building at the wildlife refuge and the building where Joseph Smith and Hyrum were killed?  Yep - nice cut sandstone buildings:



Folks, there are a few thoughts I would like to pass along here.

There has been a lot of confusion over the tribulation and the timing of the building of the third temple there in Jerusalem.

We just had a MAJOR development in world events in the last week.  Apparently Obama is making a move as the next Secretary General of the UN (a body that I despise for its corruption and subversiveness).  The plan is to put him on the throne at the end of the existing leader's tenure at the end of 2016.  All of the major objectives of destroying the USA will have been accomplished by then, including gun control and so much else.

I have made the case over and over that bummer is the A/C, who in concert with the king of the north (Putin) will make his move on Jerusalem.  We are going thru the tribulation right now - a seven year period where this figure causes war to be poured out upon all nations.  Then Jesus comes to Jerusalem (on Succoth of 2016 - which is October 16th, 2016).  This is the finishing of the period of tribulations of man by man.  Then there is a seven year period of tribulations by God - which will rock this globe.  In that time, all nations will be brought to their knees by God's wrath. 

So, I am not sure if this has been clear - but there is a period where man's wrath is poured upon mankind - and then seven more years where God's wrath is poured out.  This will end in 2022-2023 time frame.  In this time, the remaining pockets of good people will be driven to America where the New Jerusalem is being built.  People will flow to it from all nations.  Spencer, in Visions of Glory, speaks of this time.  I would like to be a part of that.  Years ago, while on my mission, I was given the assurance that I would visit every temple on the face of the earth.  I think that will happen.  Hopefully, I will be deemed worthy and have lived worthy of that privilege.

Here is the article that got me thinking about this:

One last thought.  Any man can look at the signs of the times and know when Christ will show up in Jerusalem.  When you see two important figures killed and laying in the streets of Jerusalem, after the armies of the earth have swept out of the Syrian region and south into Israel, then you know you have three days until our Lord makes His appearance.  Basic logic.  There will be fire and burning - but not the end.  The end is not yet - at this point.

After the people have begun to gather in earnest to the New Jerusalem, then you will see that magnificent temple and city being built.  When the gathering is complete, the fire will come from Heaven and cleanse the earth - after the NJ is caught up to meet the city of Enoch as it comes down to return to earth.  The time of this second fire is not known - even to the angels in Heaven, but to God only, for He holds the final judgment on the wicked and knows when they have been gathered out completely - and the wicked are ready for the all consuming fire that will sweep the tares and the damned from the face of our care-worn mother earth. 

The people - including the Ten Tribes - will then spill out onto and fill the plains of the former United States and become a mighty people as the Millennium begins in earnest.  Complete joy, peace and bliss.  Industry where the people actually can see the results of their labors and enjoy those fruits - will be the norm.  All idleness will be done away.  All sin, vanquished.  Can you feel it?  Can you feel to sing that song of redeeming and all encompassing love?  I can - and I want to be a part of it.  What are we doing right now to be a part of that?


Around 2010, I published an article that described a military takeover of Europe by the mudslimes.

Right now, the advanced guard have moved into place:

The full invasion will come later - but not too much later.  I am sure the Brits and the Irish will thank God that they can blow the Chunnel and keep most of them out.  If those that are there can be contained......


Get ready for it.  Revolution in this land.

Before Sept 11, I kept saying over and over, "This land will be humbled.  This land will be humbled."

Now, I cannot stop the cry of, "This land will be destroyed for her crimes against man (the rest of the world)."

How long can flowing waters remain impure?  Not too long, when you once were the light on a hill for all others to see.  The blood will run in the streets.  That will be the blood of tyrants - after the blood of the innocents flows.  Happened in Jerusalem in Lehi's day - and then again in one generation after they took the Savior out. 

History repeats.

Here is what you have to look forward to next:

A terrible revolution will take place in the land of America, such as has never been seen before; for the land will be literally left without a supreme government. And every species of wickedness will run rampant. Father will be against son, and son against father, mother against daughter, and daughter against mother. The most terrible scenes of murder and bloodshed and rapine that have ever been looked upon will take place.
"Peace will be taken from the earth and there will be no peace only in the Rocky Mountains. This will cause many hundreds and thousands of the honest in heart to gather there; not because they would be saints but for safety and because they would not take up the sword against their neighbor. 
"You will be so numerous that you will be in danger of famine, but not for the want of seed time and harvest, but because of so many to be fed.  Many will come with bundles under their arms to escape the calamities, and there will be no escape except by fleeing to Zion. (A few million Mormons will try to return to Utah.)
"Those that come to you will try to keep the laws and be one with you, for they will see your unity and the greatness of your organization. The Turkish Empire or the Crescent will be one of the first powers that will be disrupted, for freedom must be given for the gospel to he preached in the Holy Land.
"The Lord took of the best blood of the nations and planted them on the small islands now called England and Great Britain, and gave them great power in the nations for a thousand years and their power will continue with them, that they may keep the balance of power and keep Russia from usurping her power over all the world. England and France are now (1843) bitter enemies, but they will be allied together and he united to keep Russia from conquering the world.
"The two Popes, Greek and Catholic, will come together and be united.  The Protestant religions do not know how much they are indebted to Henry the VIII for throwing off the Pope's Bull and establishing the Protestant faith. He was the only monarch who could do so at the time, and he did it because this nation, England, was at his back to sustain him. One of the peculiar features in England is the established red coat, a uniform making so remarkable a mark to shoot at, and yet they have conquered wherever they have gone. The reason for this will be known by them some day.  The Lion and the Unicorn of Israel is their ensign, the wisdom and statesmanship of England comes from having so much of the blood of Israel in the nation. 
"While the terrible revolution of which I have spoken has been going on, England will be neutral until it becomes so inhuman that she will interfere to stop the shedding of blood. England and France will unite together to make peace, not to subdue the nations; they will find the nations so broken up and so many claiming government, till there will be no responsible government. Then it will appear to the other nations or powers as though England had taken possession of the country. The Black Horse will flee to the invaders and will join with them, for they will have fear of becoming slaves again.  Knowing England did not believe in slavery, fleeing to them they believe would make them safe.  Armed with British bayonets, the doings of the "Black" Horse will he terrible."
Here the Prophet said he could not bear to look longer upon the scene as shown him in vision and asked the Lord to close the scene.
Continuing, he said. "During this time the great White Horse will have gathered strength sending out Elders to gather the honest in heart among the Pale Horse, or people of the United States, to stand by the Constitution of the United States, as it was given by inspiration of God.
"In these days God will set up a kingdom never to he thrown down, for other kingdoms to come unto. And these kingdoms that will not let the Gospel be preached will be humbled until they will.



I have dealt with my share of toxic people.  Whatever they touch, goes to Helena handbasket.

I once was fined $34,125 for cutting blackberry vines on private property.  It was near a "salmon stream".  The said "salmon stream" was a ditch next to a road that cut squarely across the said "salmon habitat".  The said "salmon stream" was cleaned out and muddied by a truck-mounted backhoe five days later by the same city that was fining me for cutting blackberries five days earlier in "wetlands" that a 60,000lb truck/trailer had just driven on on January 5th in Western Washington - the rain crapitol of the USA.....  Yep - not making this up....

I was proven guilty by bureaurocratic fiat law, the fine was imposed and then I had to fight the fine with my own money against a larger government entity that was using unlimited tax dollars (part of which I paid to them), in order to put me into financial chaos.  Pissed off does not describe how I felt.  This occurred precisely when I was in the process of getting laid off after Sept 11th aerospace downturn and a month before I lost my kid to SIDS.  Thankfully, I was able to hire a geotech engineer to prove my innocence a couple of weeks before the death of my kid.  I have to say that all of that heaped on my head at one time would have been too much.

As it was, I was all sorts of pissed off - and the only thing keeping me from doing a LaVoy was a temple assignment each Saturday morning.  I was grinding my teeth at nights wondering how I was going to pay those chumps off.

This person nails my sentiments RIGHT down perfectly:

Anything the federal govt touches goes to hell!! ... FDA approves nothing but toxnis,, like Aspartame, a DOD chemical. and our "food" no longer has any nutritional value. CDC pushes toxic vaccines and drugs, the number one killer in the USA!! (Iatrogenesis). CIA is the biggest drug runners in the world bringing in toxic drugs to our kids to get addicted to. FBI is enforcing and supporting non Constitutional authorities, they should be looking into the legality if our POTUS is even legal. BLM has taken over our land and abused their authority. The EPA is allowing toxic drinking water to our children and allowing these poisons to be sprayed in our skies!! The Federal Govt cannot manage anything unless it involved taking rights, land or lives!! Then they sell it back to us via a license or registration! Dont even get me going on the Federal Reserve/IRS scam.

Here is something I posted on FB when a pro US military shill tried to defend the unconscionable:

(Before It's News)

Via comment by Sioux on 1 killed as Ammon Bundy, 4 others arrested in Oreg…” Daughter of Finicum says that her father had his hands up when the FBI ambushed them – that there were snipers in the trees. Ammon's body guard disputes what the daughter says. He stated that Finicum charged the FBI men… with his hands up, I wonder? Sickening and wrong, but not surprising.”

“His hands were in the air and he was shot in the face by the American authorities. Ammon Bundy reported there are 6 witnesses to this evil.”
Posted by Thara Tenney on Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Her testimony was echoed by another eyewitness, Victoria Sharp, who was in the car with Finicum when the group were pulled over by cops and federal agents. Sharp claims that Finicum put his hands out of the car window and asked the police to allow the women to leave the car.

“They shot at him, but they missed him,” said Sharp, adding that the group then attempted to drive away in the car but were shot at again by police.

“When we crashed and stopped for a second, he got out of the car, he had his hands in the air, he’s like ‘just shoot me then’….and they did, they shot him dead,” said Sharp.

“He was just walking, with his hands in the air, I swear to God, and they shot him dead and after he was down on the ground, shot him three more times,” said Sharp, adding that the vehicle was again “bombarded with bullets” as well as tear gas rounds.

Sharp says that the group tried to “find something white” so they could display it as a sign of surrender. She challenges news reports that only six shots were fired, asserting, “they shot at least 120 shots altogether.”

Sharp also claims that none of the individuals in the car pulled out a gun at any point and that the incident was an “ambush” with “FBI snipers in the trees” surrounding the vehicle.

This is another protestor who got suicided by the gooberment. Sounds familiar to me…There is a long list of such folks who defied the big boys. Some are dead, some are in is obvious that the cost is very high if you make a stand for justice in crazy-controlled land. Such men and women of the world are our beacons of bravery.

The murdered man in Oregon is Lavoy Finicum from Arizona. Last week the dictatorship seized his four foster children from his home in retaltiation for his support of the Malheur occupation. The following comes off VNN, which is admittedly not the most solid source in the world, but it seems to have come from another internet source.
“Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore said that Ammon Bundy called his wife, Lisa Bundy, from the back of a police car on Tuesday night.

”Fiore, a vocal supporter of the Bundy family, said that Ammon Bundy told his wife that Finicum was cooperating with police and had put his hands up.

Then, Fiore said, Bundy told his wife that he watched police shoot Finicum three times. She said that Ammon Bundy also said Finicum was on the ground when he was shot.”

This sounds like an extrajudicial execution under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011, and as such it is perfectly “legal” in Obama's America.


This just smacks of what happened at Carthage other than LaVoy not giving the universal Masonic sign of distress before they finished an unarmed, worthy Priesthood holder and father of 11 wonderful children off...... You might say - "Joseph started it!!" when he smashed a press that was printing inflammatory stuff! They had a right to kill that First Amendment usurper!!" Crucify him!! Crucify him!! Or maybe things could be seen in context. The thugs murdered an innocent man who was fighting a losing battle against public opinion and tyranny by the larger, strong power. Maybe you would have a balanced view of things and realize that there were not good laws on the books for slander - and that he had kind of had it with the whole mess. LaVoy will go down as a Martin Luther, of sorts, in the fight against federal tyranny. If you are a federal employee or "public servant", I think it would be a good time to step away from this court of public opinion. You are fighting this thing from a morally inferior standpoint. Please do not make me lose complete respect (what little I have left) for our tyrannical overlords and the "alphabet agencies". You ALL are on shaky ground if you do not denounce the sins you have brought against the American people and our sacred Constitution. Even the Founding Fathers - you hold no high ground. Thank you.


Our federal government has once again murdered an honest, law-abiding citizen execution style and in cold blood. Can it not be said we have allowed a combination of evil forces to gradually remove our freedoms while we apathetically look the other way for fear of being 'contentious'? It is long past time to "awake to our awful situation". Christians contend, prophets and apostles contend, Christ contends. Political correctness and timidity are of the devil and are not to be confused with meekness. We are here, now at this time to face evil head on and overcome it through our righteous action and allowing God to work through us, not by sitting back, turning the channel and attending to our useless cares: sports, games, movies, pseudo-work, television and general worldliness. We forsake our covenants by worshiping at the alter of Babylon while paying lip service to the Kingdom of God and the establishment of Zion.

Well, I managed to drop at least 13 people off the "follower" list overnight with my Isaiah 4:1 article.  Do I care?  Nope - not in the least.  Never have, never will.  I determine what is right for me - and then go my own way.  Real men do not cower and look around for approval.  They simply look up for approval - and then do His will in all things.

Few people will "say it like it is" - precisely for fear of offending for a word.  Jesus did not care, nor was he PC back in the day.  Nor will He be when He comes again.  He is a man's man.  I admire that.

On a similar vein, I admire LaVoy - who simply was taking overwhelming tyranny head on.  He was no terrorist - but they labeled him as such in order to inflame a brainwashed public into supporting their murderous actions.  They would do the same of Joseph Smith today.  They would do Carthage all over again.  These chumps (and their families) will suffer personally for what they have done.  As far as I am able, I will follow this to its conclusion.  I am a firm believer that "what goes around, comes around".  One of my favorite books was "Fate of the Persecutors of the Prophet Joseph Smith".  I liked that the author drilled into history - the hidden stuff - and determined in the court of human action/reaction, that those who took out some of the best blood of this century, payed a VERY HEAVY price for their insults to the very God of Heaven and those whom were ordained to do His business.  They were on the wrong side - and they got maggots for their troubles.....  Same thing with Herod and so many others who attempt to thwart God's purposes:

As I suspected and would have bet almost anything on, the police and the feds were the ones who initiated the shooting. This was a cold-blooded ambush. It was a reckless, savage murder. They couldn't wait to get these patriots into a situation where they could isolate them and attack them. LaVoy was shot in the face while trying to follow police orders to surrender. A car full of both men and women was pumped full of over an hundred bullets, despite the fact that the occupants were complying, peaceful, and drew no weapon whatsoever.
I have refrained from bashing the police on this page per the request of Heather. But I cannot be silent on this incident. The institution of law enforcement is an enemy of the Republic. Many police are jackbooted thugs. They are the American equivalent of Nazi Stormtroopers, and, in fact, kill more Americans than the Stormtroopers ever did. They are the enforcers of tyranny for our wicked government and the Satanic secret combinations that run them.
Do not misunderstand, there are some very good police left out there. Some, such as retired Sheriff Richard Mack, have done a wonderful job in decrying police abuses and unconstitutional actions (I've met him personally—he's a great man). A neighbor of mine, a Latter-day Saint, is a cop. I've known other police. So trust me, I know they're not all evil or corrupt. But a large, and growing, percentage of them are. And many of the ones who themselves are not corrupt, are silent about the corrupt that surrounds them, thus making them complicit to a degree. And law enforcement as an institution is utterly corrupt and tyrannical—no one with any shred of honesty in their body can disagree with that. And it goes without saying that the feds are corrupt to the core (though again, not every individual fed is a monster).
Again, I raise my voice to denounce the murderers who slaughtered LaVoy in cold blood yesterday, who injured Ryan Bundy, and who endangered a car full of innocent people, including women. What cowards! What hell-spawned demons! What Satan-possessed miscreants! What oath-breaking tyrants! I call for each and every cop anywhere in America who is involved in corruption to repent. And I call for every cop who sees, hears about, or knows about corruption within law enforcement to do the morally correct thing and report it, no matter how damaging it might be to your career. Be men. Be courageous. Stand up for right and truth.
And to everyone who reads this, I ask you, how long before this happens to your family member? How long before they come for you? How long before they gun you down or arrest you for "conspiracy" because you were asserting your God-given rights? At what point will you step forward to defend the rights won for you with the blood of your forefathers? First they came for the Bundys.... next it will be you if you don't do anything.
I hope this terrible incident wakes some people up to the awful situation we're in as a nation. Our Constitution is dead. Justice is a phantom. Peace is swiftly being taken from the earth. The Spirit is withdrawing and leaving us to ourselves. The government is hemming us in and threatening us with total tyranny, which is to be enforced by the police, federal goons, and the military. If you don't think the police or military will go along with this tyranny, you're blind to reality. They have been going along with it, and they will go along with it. I'm sure some would refuse orders to disarm, round up, or kill Americans, but we've already witnessed that many will go right along—just like men did in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Red China, Red Cambodia, or Jacobin France. We're no different. The same evil spirit inspires yes-men in America that inspired the yes-men who operated the Soviet Gulags, shot Christians, ravaged nuns, put Jews onto trains, and killed in the name of the "greater good." Wake up! Arise and be men! See the enemy for who they are. Prepare yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually to fight them. We are in a war. You must choose a side. And make sure to choose the right side so that the blood of patriots doesn't cry up to God for your destruction. ZAS…/

Interesting.  This is a picture with his daughter in front of what appears to be the St. George temple.  One of 11 children (and who knows how many grand children).   They have crossed a line here, people.


LaVoy Finicum is dead.  I have always wondered how the incitement would occur against the Mormons as they are chased from city to city as the civil war erupts in this land.

This may be the "shot heard round the world".  I am not saying it will be - but this is outta control......

If I thought I could do something, I would love go down there - and may just yet.  I CANNOT stand tyranny..... in any form:

May his blood be avenged by a Just and Holy God. Wow - 11 children are out of a father and a grand-father.  Way to go, ^%$#@#$ people in DC.  My feet have been pre-dusted.  I will cheer when there is a hole in the ground there.....  The only thing worth saving there is a sacred document that has been trampled on for the last 150 years.  The rest can go to hell where they can simmer in their own juices for a while.  Just sickened inside.

I come from a long line of ranchers/farmers (though my generation is not actively doing it from my dad's side) - and I know their plight.  I just got done exchanging words with a manager here who watches CNN and grew up in Philadelphia (city slicker).  Normally, we are chill and both like smooth jazz and we both talk portuguese to each other.  I am his favorite support engineer.  He was pretty hot when I defended this standoff - I was kind of surprised that he was so charged over this.  The conversation ended on him slamming those that support abortion (religious conservatives).  I have to wonder what kind of negative effects this will have on public perceptions of Mormons (LaVoy is a member of the Church).  I got loads of grief from the liberal co-workers during the Romney election attempt.  I wonder how much grief I will get related to this.  Bring it - bigots will show their true colors.....

I tire of it.  BUT, it is part of the deal.

When is an unborn baby (fetus is the "f" word to me - a word derived to deaden the soul to the grossly spiritually negligent act of abortion) viable?  I would not want to sit there and parse that question out.  I think it is foolishness to even tinker with life in any form.  Just should NOT be done.

This article was written as a pro-life article (it does not push the "pro-death" agenda....) and I support it and anything else that fights the hellish act of desecrating the temple of an innocent.  I give almost no slack on that one - having lost a 9 month old son.  To me sickening crimes like rape, molestation and even some forms of outright murder pale when placed against an abortion.   It is heinous - and I believe that Isaiah 4:4 (just previous post) apply here amply for those who indulge in such acts without extreme cause (life of mother, etc).  And even then...... how do we know the mother WILL die??  I remember the nurses totally freaking out with my wife's pre-eclamptic conditions during the last few pregnancies and things turned out fine.  We were told almost across the board that she was going to die, sky is falling, cats-dogs-chaos if we proceeded with the pregnancies and those zero-pop freaks (liberal Seattle - complete with lectures each child about how we had already had our share with three and that my wife would die if we had any more and threats of me being jailed if we went AMA and she passed away during birth - not making this up) were shown wrong every single time.  Arm of flesh versus God's will for our family.....  I learned to despise the medical community since then and I have not stopped mocking their false priesthood complete with their sacraments of doing ANYTHING to preserve SOME "important" lives, while throwing others away like common pieces of trash during their blood-stained sacramental rites of abortion.  Perfectly fine if they were aborted.....  jk........ kind of ......

Anyway - enough rant.  This is an awesome story from this link:

Twins, 21 Months Apart
My wife and I got married late in life. At the time of our marriage, I was 32 years old and she was 28. I said that if I had searched for 30 years, I couldn’t have found a better wife for me. Terri prayed that after we got married, we would have kids right away. I prayed that we would wait a couple of years before having our first kid. Since our first birth was nine months and four days after we got married, we can tell who has a better connection Above.
As with most fathers to be, I was very concerned for my wife’s welfare during the pregnancy. Being new to the role of husband and father, I was worried about how things progressed. I felt that things were tougher on my wife than normal for a pregnancy, and that also gave me feelings of concern, and even guilt, because my wife was going through this. Morning sickness, aches and pains, headaches, muscle spasms, all showed me my wife was going through a major trauma, and there was nothing I could do to alleviate her suffering.
A few weeks after her initial diagnosis of being pregnant, our obstetrician announced to us that he believed that my wife was carrying twins and that was why the pregnancy was so hard for her. He promptly scheduled an ultrasound for her, and the conclusion was that indeed, she had twins. What a way to start our marriage out with a bang. My concern for her and my new family’s welfare greatly increased.
Then, her sufferings magnified. Her illness increased so much the previous suffering she had gone through was as nothing in comparison. I prayed night and day that Heavenly Father would protect her. Four months into our marriage I was greatly concerned that I was about to lose my wife. The doctors informed us that being sick during pregnancy was normal, but this was far beyond normal in my opinion. I spent many restless and virtually sleepless nights worrying about her, frustrated that I could do nothing to help her.
One night, about thirty minutes after going to bed, my wife was lying beside me sound asleep. I was trying to be as still as I could so as not to disturb her because she had had an extremely difficult day, and I was relieved at the temporary peace she was having while sleeping. I was, and still always am, impressed at how peaceful, childlike and angelic my wife appears while she sleeps. While contemplating this fact, I noticed that the darkness of our room diminished, and it appeared as if a light was on in the hallway, gradually increasing in illumination.
I sat up in bed, somewhat alarmed, trying to see what was happening. The light was an intense blue white, but not painful to my night-adapted eyes. Then the source of light became apparent. A youth, whose age I would put at about 20 years and quite handsome in appearance, walked gracefully into the room. The light radiated from him and filled the room brighter than in daylight, but, unlike looking into a bright light, I was able to see the youth in detail without hurting my eyes.
The youth looked softly upon my sleeping wife. Then he spoke to me.
“Dad, I have come here to tell you that my sister and I have talked together and we decided that now is not the time for both of us to come. We have decided that my sister is to come first, and I will come along after a while, when the time is right.” He smiled at me after saying this, and suddenly I felt that everything would be fine. He looked slowly around the room, then looked again at me, still with that same smile on his face, which touched my heart. Tears flowed from my eyes.
Gradually the light diminished. I couldn’t say that the youth walked away, nor could I say that he suddenly disappeared, but as the light went away, he was no longer there. I looked again at my wife, still sleeping peacefully beside me, and my heart was filled with love. Once again, I noticed the light was not from an ordinary source, because after the light was gone I had no after image still retained on my retinas. I was able to see quite well in the once again darkened room. The only after image was burned in my heart and mind, not in my eyes.
I woke my wife up and we discussed what I had seen, and what it meant for us.
A few days after this, my wife was once again having an ultra-sound image taken of the developing fetuses. After this session, the doctor reluctantly had to inform my wife that one of the fetuses within her womb was no longer viable. The other one, he said, was apparently quite healthy, and he did not feel that one was in danger. Through the rest of the pregnancy, my wife was still quite ill, her medical problems were severe, but never as bad as before the visitation.
At the time of birth, the child was born by cesarean section. The doctor helped the baby out, offered his hearty congratulations, and while holding the baby, announced that we had a beautiful redheaded baby boy! I knew instantly that was not right, and also my wife, with her restrictions and anesthetics, tried to rise to see if this was true. But the nurse stepped right in. She said, “Uh, Doctor, I think that you should look again!” He did, and said, “Oops, I was wrong! It is a beautiful, healthy redheaded baby girl!” My wife smiled and relaxed, and I accompanied my new daughter to the nursery.
Life continued on. My wife’s health returned to normal after the pregnancy, and I was astounded at my beautiful little girl. Neither my wife nor myself have red hair. But our daughter was a welcome delight into our family. She belonged there, and even those nights that I was walking the floor with her, humming softly to her, I was filled with love for this little treasure.
About a year later, my wife came to me with a question. What would I think about having a second child? I told her that I would be concerned again for her health, but if God thought it was time, then I would not fight it. I said again, let’s not rush it, but when the time is right, then we could go ahead and have another child.
Once again, my wife was far more in tune than I. Twenty-one months after the birth of our first child, we were in the hospital having another C-section. We had a beautiful redheaded baby boy! And in the nursery, it was as if the youth was talking to me again. The time was indeed right. The baby looked at me and smiled. My heart melted, and I remembered that sweet smile I had seen one night, nearly two years before.
Today is nearly nine years since my boy was born. He and his sister are beautiful, redheaded children, unlike their parents whose hair is now quite tinged with gray. The two of them are almost identical in appearance. They play well together, and quite often they seem to instantly know what the other is thinking. Their actions, voices, and appearance are nearly identical. Many people continue to ask us if they are twins.

This is a topic that has been on my mind much lately.  And I do not want to turn this into a bashing thread on women - but I always push the envelope in thinking (this is how you grow and shape your views more correctly and fully - or get a bunch of angry comments and sulk off to the nearest

My roomie - who has been single his whole life - was looking over his lds dating site last night and I was chatting with him.  One of his major concerns as a single guy - and wanting to get married - is that he simply will not be able to make the grade of economic prowess expected by the average female in the Church.  He lives in a modest house that has not been updated in 30 years - and knows that it will be expected that he drop $100K+ on renos before she will consider it "habitable".  His comment is that they always are comparing sideways (looking around at what all the other sisters have), and expect to be put up in like style and manner.  His eyesight has failed him and he is no longer employed - so the possibility of going there simply does not exist.  He, like many single LDS men, who cannot meet that one bar (but are fine in every other way), has simply given up and will maybe be a ministering angel.  It is my impression on the situation - that, with all things being otherwise equal, many of his potential mates would rather pass him over and miss out on companionship, intimacy in all its forms, security - financial and whatever he could provide with old betsy and double ought buckshot, than live in some form of poverty.  Not that these women want to commit to having children (they want to make sure papa birdie can bring home the worms while there are chicks in the nest), they are too old in his demographic.  They simply want to be esteemed as not being married to a "financial loser".  Righteousness equals financial success, right??  Of course, that last statement was dripping with sarcasm.  We live (Utah) in a culture that has the highest per-capita existence of plastic surgeons.  They are not there to fix an overabundance of congenital defects like cleft palates and lips - these are to slam in those fake implants, nip and tuck those extra folds and do other things so those 50 year old women can compete with those 30 year old women.  Is that not the definition of "consuming it upon our lusts"?  Would that resource spent on the plastic fakery not be better spent helping those who are in abject poverty?  Is this not those who supposedly have a higher calling?  Could this not be used to help others - instead of plunging us into a state where we will be looking up from hell and begging for those meek who suffered for lack of our largesse, to come and provide us some relief from our eternal flame that cannot be quenched?

In no way am I saying that the men of the Church do not have their problems.  There are not enough ones and zeroes to go into all of them.  BUT - I can say that I am not alone in my thinking.  There is  a problem in the Church with worldliness.  Amongst my single friends (who are not LDS nor keeping the Law of Chastity), the best aphrodisiac (and attractant to a female), is money.  Show them the nice car, the nice house, the fat bank account and you are in - 50 Shades of Grey style.......  The running joke out there is that if that character in that movie lived in a trailer court, she would NEVER have given him the time of day.  It is all about wealth and power.  Our women have become intoxicated with it.  Many men have, as well.  They know if they want the most beautiful women (men are drawn to beauty first), then they must have the power/money/wealth in order to attract her.  I knew that as a kid in high school - and poured a substantial amount of money into my beat up '66 Mustang coupe so that I could attract the attention of the girls.  I had to dress in the $50 Brittania jeans and turn my nose up at the JC Penney Toughskins in order to pull her in.  It was that simple - and my mom used to chide me for my prideful attitude.  It was driven by my need to impress the girls.  Money (or the appearance of having ample amounts of it along with the popularity it brought) was the currency.  I was just paying the price of admission to get into their world.

As a prescient and thinking adult - it is all foolishness and I now call it Babylon.  I pretty much reject it.  Money is now a means to first bless the life of my family - and then see how much I can do to bless the lives of others.  I am not setting myself up here - but this is the Zion spirit.  Only those who have it, will make it into the next phase of Millennial living.  It will (literally) be the currency of the next 1000 years as the god of this world and his hellish minions are cast to the curb as we crowd out selfish desires and replace those with thoughts and actions of "what can I do to bless your life?".

The rest will be gone as the purge sweeps through our land - and all we used to cling to (beauty, money, power, fame), is laid waste.  Isaiah 4:4 talks of this directly.  For those (women specifically), who have looked sideways on the (meek) lowly men who possessed no power, handsomeness, money - those who will end up inheriting the earth - they will have only those for breeding partners.  Those who have arrogantly said that they would never share their man (rejected openly Section 132) - they will come to an understanding.  It will be a painful lesson in the ultimate form of Consecration.  I will look on with pity for them - but know it is all just part of the sifting process and a necessary part of the Pride Cycle.  Come what may - and let us love it!  At least there will once again be growth - and the saying of "All is Well in Zion" will not be met with scorn and derision from those who know better.

The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 4

Zion and her daughters will be redeemed and cleansed in the millennial day—Compare 2 Nephi 14.
 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
 In that day shall the branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.

Let the nasty comments begin......  Sorry if you were offended - but I have to say it as I (and Isaiah) call it.  I would love to hear respectful contrary comments or life experiences if you disagree.


Some of these will warm your hearts.  My favorite was by Tolstoy - I can tell already that I like that man.  He has the prophetic bent:

The "flu" sounds so innocuous.....

Influenza is much more ominous.

This sounds as if it could be quite serious if it gets out of control:

I like the idea of being OUT of populated areas when stuff like this is going around.
