The Left’s War Against Immigration [Video]

Immigration

The hottest story on the planet at the moment is taking place at the southern border of the United States. The unwashed masses of ordinary Americans are being assured by the Leftmedia’s press politburo that illegal aliens rushing the border are only a problem because of President Trump.

The now infamous photo of a woman running from tear gas with children in tow is offered as evidence of Trump’s evil intent regarding immigrants. Surely all those racist and misogynist Trump supporters will realize that the Left is only trying to help open their eyes and they will turn away from this obviously insidious man.

Of course, this means that the Left must ignore or downplay the fact that President Obama did exactly the same thing to other groups of illegal aliens trying to rush the border. Moreover, he did this on hundreds of occasions.

In truth, the Left isn’t interested in engaging the facts of the matter. Nor are they bothered about the destructive fruit of their efforts on the American citizen.

Their sole concern is the completion of their malevolent mission against America. Those people and institutions destroyed as a result are considered acceptable civilian casualties of war for the sake of the Leftist ideal.

Encouraging Illegal Aliens Harms Immigrants

ImmigrationThe truth of the matter is that encouraging illegal aliens to break in and enter the United States harms immigrants themselves. Not the leftist-lionized illegals, rather those who are legal immigrants are substantially harmed.

As a clarification to those who might wonder why I use illegal aliens to identify the wannabe invaders. I use the legal term for these persons, as should be used for we are discussing the rule of law and sovereignty of a nation.

Legal immigrants are really the only people who deserve the title of immigrant. They have earned the name because they entered America respecting the laws of America as their first act.

Many of these same people go through a grueling process to gain their citizenship as an American. A process that is costly in many respects.

These honorable and courageous people are being ignored in the current debate, much to our detriment. They are also adversely affected by invading illegal aliens, and their voices should be heard.

Those immigrants who come to America legally by visa, green card or become citizens are in the same pool of workers as any other American. Thus they suffer the same fate of seeing their wages undercut by the cheaper labor of illegals.

Legal immigrants also suffer just like other Americans with the drain on social and governmental resources caused by illegal aliens. The legal immigrant suffers as well from the increase in crime that often accompanies large numbers of illegal aliens in many areas.

Favoring Illegal Aliens Profoundly Insults Immigrants

ImmigrationThere is a very insulting message sent by the Left to immigrants with their favor of illegal aliens in America. It is the message that their patience, perseverance and hard work were the efforts of fools.

In an excellent piece by Don Feder, he writes,

My wife’s father was born and raised in Barbados. He immigrated to the United States when he was 17-years-old. Although it would have been easy for him to enter the country illegally, he chose to enter legally and stood in line for hours to be processed through Ellis Island.

He was proud to be a legal immigrant his entire life, until his death in 1985. He worked for the United States Post Office in New York City and in Arizona. He also served as an officer in the New York City Police Auxiliary.

Living in Arizona he was very familiar with the influx of illegal aliens and often spoke out against them. He believed that every person wishing to enter the United States do so legally, as he and so many others did.

The hubris of Leftism declares this immigrant a chump for following the law. By leftist thinking, illegal aliens are far more valuable than American citizens, especially those who immigrated legally.

After all, immigrants who become citizens are on record with an oath of loyalty to the United States and its Constitution. Loyal American citizens are always a source of irritation to the Marxist Left and their minions.

The fact that a former resident of another country would renounce his homeland to become an American is even worse for the Left. That person willingly embraces what they reject; that America is a great country and patriotism is a worthy ideal.

Moreover, illegal aliens are easy to attract and recruit for the Left. They are praised by the Leftmedia and given a plethora of handouts thanks to our Left-leaning politicians.

This serves to increase a population the Left will push hard to turn into a legal voting block. Should that fail, they always have their race card to pull which facilitates not requiring ID to vote and makes voter fraud their art form.

The Border Wall Can Save Immigration

The current situation at the southern border is untenable. Dishonest politicians in collaboration with the lying Leftmedia exacerbate the problem of an illegal alien invasion.

On his November 28, 2018 radio program, Buck Sexton superbly highlighted these lies of the MSM concerning this recent “caravan” of illegals,

Number 1: “It’s mostly women and children.”
Number 2: “It’s mostly valid asylum seekers.”
Number 3: “No criminals (in the caravan)”
Number 4: “No external organizers”
Number 5: “The troop deployment is not helpful”
Number 6: “There is no threat to U.S. personnel posed by this caravan”

Border patrol agents on the scene at the border stated the following revealing the truth and countering these lies.

President Trump made solving this problem the keystone of his campaign in 2016. The promise to “build the wall,” was repeated often during the campaign as the biggest solution.

It is the one major promise which has yet to be fulfilled. In fact, there is no timeline or substantial funding for a wall at present.

This is surprising considering that both the House and Senate have been held by Republicans for the past two years. It is to the shame of many RINO “never Trumpers” that we do not have the needed security of a border wall.

Without such a physical barrier, there is no way to control the southern border onslaught America is under today. If America is under such assault, immigrants are as well.

Israel and San Diego Show Walls Work

ImmigrationThe question of a border wall’s effectiveness has already been answered. Yes, a border wall does work, both in other nations and in America.

American ally Israel and the city of San Diego have both shown positive results by using physical barriers at their borders.

In a 2017 statement by Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wis, he said concerning Israel,

Johnson, who chairs the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, released a report titled “Securing Israel: Lessons learned from a nation under constant threat of attack.” The report came after a trip Johnson made to Israel where he met the Israeli prime minister and other security officials. The report notes that the number of people illegally crossing the Israel-Egypt border was more than 16,000 in 2011 and less than 20 in 2016, a 99 percent decrease.

San Diego used to be the primary entry point for illegal aliens in the 1980s and 90s. Almost half of all border apprehensions in the United States in 1991 were in the San Diego area.

“Before this primary fence was built, migrants were coming north with no fencing, no barrier to stop them,” [San Diego Border Agent Tekae] Michael said, noting that before they began constructing the initial barrier in 1991, people were “driving basically straight on through the border.”

“So this primary fence was built to stop those huge loads of people and narcotics,” she said. These days, it’s relatively quiet. Michael notes that on this tour of the border wall, it’s unlikely we’ll encounter many people trying to cross illegally—something that would have been a common sight in the 1980s and ’90s.

ImmigrationPresident Trump was right to emphasize building the border wall during the campaign. His efforts to build the wall in the first half of his first term have been frustrated by his foes both Democrat and Republican.

The president still believes this must be done soon, and he is correct. The wall is necessary for American security despite the whining from the Left.

If the Left really cared about immigrants or immigration, they would support building the border wall. Instead, they chant at their violent protests,

No Trump, No Wall, No USA at all!

If the Left cared about immigrants, they would not support sanctuary cities that harbor illegal aliens who have committed serious crimes including rape and murder. Instead, left-leaning federal judges declare that President Trump cannot withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities.

The truth is that Leftists despise immigrants for getting in their path to an imagined Socialist “utopia.” They would rather open the border to a flood of illegals and help destroy the greatest free nation the world has yet known.

Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people; help me when you save them, that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance. Psalm 106:4-5 [ESV]

Elevating Emotion and Marching Toward Slavery in America [Video]

Scales of justice should be balanced with evidence

The entire world has been witness to a disgraceful display during the hearings concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The outrageous protests during the actual hearings contributed to a circus of Leftist anger cloaked in ridiculous costumes.

By this juncture of the Trump presidency, most observers have grown used to such clownish behavior. The fact that it can and does escalate to violence from the Left is also growing disturbingly common.

However, the depths of disgrace to which the Left can sink was not yet plumbed. That was revealed after the hearings were over and a vote for Kavanaugh was likely.

False and salacious accusations of sexual assault were then sprung by a Democratic Senator and a delay in the vote was demanded. It was the beginning of elevating emotion over reason and evidence to destroy a good man and a nation in the process.

Comparing Left and Right

I commented on this fiasco of a process in response to one of my favorite bloggers’ posts about the Kavanaugh hearings. In the comment, I noted that this kind of thing was never the case when a Democratic nominee for SCOTUS is up for approval.

 

Protest against Kavanaugh
Protestors claiming Kavanaugh is a rapist

 

However, one person took strong objection to that observation. She brought up the case of Merrick Garland from the Obama era saying that the delay and refusal to hold hearings was comparable to this salacious circus with Kavanaugh.

 

There is no moral equivalency here. The immoral behavior is ensconced firmly on the Democratic left, as they have demonstrated aptly since the 2016 election.

Garland wasn’t subjected to sensationalized examination of his high school yearbook. There was never an accusation of sexual assault or gang rape leveled at him.

Garland didn’t have threats leveled at his family. He wasn’t cursed at and mocked by protesters, some of whom were violent.

In short, Merrick Garland was never the target of personal character assassination by the Republicans. Nor would that have happened were hearings conducted for Garland’s nomination.

Credibility Is Not by Emotion Alone

The delay was to accommodate the accuser who at first insisted upon anonymity but then agreed to testify and tell her side of this “new” story. Actually, not so new, as the Senator actually had the written accusations in hand last July, two months prior to the hearings.

 

Senator FeinsteinIn the first place, this casts doubt on the sincerity of Senator Diane Feinstein of California. It seems apparent she wasn’t interested in even bringing this forward at all unless it needed to be used to stop Kavanaugh from becoming confirmed.

It is also evident that Feinstein had virtually no concern for the welfare of the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. If she did, I wouldn’t know her name and neither would anyone else.

Moreover, this terrible farce will not serve to help real victims of sexual crimes. Instead, it will make it harder for accounts to be believed even if the stories are credible. So much for the Democrats helping women.

The media coverage almost unanimously characterized the Senate testimony of both the accuser and accused as “credible.” That is incorrect.

According to Dictionary.com, a credible statement is  “capable of being believed; believable.” What, then, determines whether or not a statement is believable?

Emotion alone cannot determine believability. Emotion can influence believability, but it cannot determine what a credible statement is.

Ms. Ford may have produced compelling testimony, but a lack of evidence voids its credibility. She could not recall the time or day or month the assault happened. She could only narrow it down to the summer of 1982, she thinks.

She wasn’t sure where the attack happened, just that it happened at a party at a house she can’t locate for anyone. She not sure who else was there, except perhaps one friend of Kavanaugh’s.

Before her testimony, Ms. Ford had never said she was absolutely sure she had been groped by Kavanaugh. During her testimony, she claimed a renewed surety that it was Kavanaugh.

Evidence Is Essential for Credibility

Justice with evidenceKavanaugh’s denial is not simply emotional, it is supported by real substance. His testimony presented evidence to bolster believability.

He produced his meticulously kept daily calendar for the summer of 1982, during high school. He also has sworn statements from his acquaintances to both his character and his activities in high school.

This is evidence which can be easily verified. Credibility, in this case, belongs to Kavanaugh and not Ms. Ford.

Unfortunately, the Senate Democrats have already accomplished one of their primary goals. Kavanaugh was to be seated after confirmation this past Monday but didn’t happen.

The new goal is to delay until the midterm elections. The legitimizing of feeling over fact here has made that goal within reach, and it could be the beginning of rampant injustice.

If emotion is given the power to make any accusation credible then the evidence is useless. If evidence becomes useless to determine guilt or innocence, anyone the powerful dislike can be accused and punished without any evidence.

All that is required is a finger pointed angrily toward an enemy with the words, “I accuse you of …” You pick the crime. It may begin with sexual violations, but it won’t stop there.

That describes the system of justice employed by the worst despotic regimes in history. Emotion overruling evidence has sent people to the Soviet Gulag and the Nazi concentration camps.

When emotion rules the day, a mere accusation is enough to condemn innocent people. In fact, we don’t have to look at history in other lands to see the process in operation.

Truth Is Not Male or Female

TruthThe new mantra since the #MeToo movement came to fruition is ‘I believe women.’ It means that women should automatically be believed when making allegations of sexual assault.

Why is this the case? Because society has been assured that no woman would lie about such a terrible crime against their person.

However, most people know this is not reality. After all, there are famous cases of women making false accusations of sexual crimes in America, and men suffering unjustly as a consequence.

Take, for example, the infamous case of false rape allegations against the Duke Men’s Lacrosse team in 2006. This video from 2007 gives an accurate account of what really happened.

Both the media and the Duke professors quickly jumped to the accuser’s side and aided and abetted the public destruction of innocent men.

All of the accused players are involved with the Innocence Project, which uses DNA evidence to overturn wrongful convictions. Said Reade Seligmann, upon his exoneration:
“This entire experience has opened my eyes to a tragic world of injustice I never knew existed. If police officers and a district attorney can systematically railroad us with absolutely no evidence whatsoever, I can’t imagine what they’d do to people who do not have the resources to defend themselves.”

Lest we forget another case closer in time, there are the false rape allegations at the University of Virginia in 2014. What began as a Rolling Stone article about a gang rape on campus ended up with a lawsuit against the magazine by the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity.

The truth is that women lie and men lie about all kinds of things, including sexual assault. That is the reason facts, evidence, witnesses, and corroboration are required or injustice will pave the path to slavery.

Elevating Emotion Over Evidence is Extremely Dangerous

False idea of guiltDisregarding evidence in favor of emotional testimony is an extremely dangerous practice. The setting doesn’t have to be in a courtroom to make it so hazardous.

The court of public opinion is perhaps worse than a legal venue. That is because the public arena has far fewer rules than a court of law.

The only regulation in a free and open society which prevents an injustice is self-regulation. Unless one exercises restraint, laws are just words on paper.

If emotion overwhelms self-restraint, any law can and will be broken. Moreover, anyone can be severely hurt and not just physically.

The destruction of a person’s reputation and livelihood can be even more damaging than physical attacks. As someone once asked, “Where do you go to get your reputation back?”

The potential of this public attitude is truly a cause for great alarm. If the people become convinced that the accused is not ‘innocent until proven guilty’ it will be because evidence has been jettisoned by emotion.

When that happens, individuals in power that oppose the Socialist Left will be targeted and accused of some egregious behavior in order to be rid of them. After that is successful a few times, groups of adversaries will also have accusations aimed at them.

Some of the targeted groups will have formerly favored the Left’s agenda of Socialism. However, they will be taken down also because of their lack of fervor for eliminating the opposition.

Eventually, the majority will adjust to a society of J’accuse. They will be properly primed to grant authority to someone who will remake America into a third-world nation.

Accusing fingerAnyone who objects will have an accusatory finger pointed at them, and their family and friends. They will all be eliminated one way or another.

The fear of this will pervade the culture. The nation will be reduced to two groups. Those who go along with the government masters, and those who refuse.

Those who refuse will also consist of two groups. Those who run and hide or those who are punished.

Then, a nation that was once the wonder of the world and the flagship of freedom will fall. The Left’s march toward slavery will be complete.

That is why the power of the emotional accusation is so dangerous and goes far beyond the Kavanaugh hearings fiasco. Because if the Left can triumph here, they can and will attempt greater action to advance their evil.

Deu_19:15  A single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed. Only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall a charge be established. Deuteronomy 19:15 [ESV]

Leftist Abuse of the First Amendment [Video]

The Constitution Is Non-negotiable

President Donald Trump pulled the security clearance of Obama’s former head of the Central Intelligence Association John Brennan on August 16, 2018. According to the Left, this was a violation of Brennan’s First Amendment right to free speech.

Moreover, this is just the latest egregious move by the president to silence dissent if you believe the screeching of leftists in politics and the Leftmedia.

Yet, the facts do not support their complaints against Trump. Rather, they show that the Left routinely abuses the First Amendment for their own purposes.

The Form of the First Amendment

The text of the First Amendment reads,

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or of the right of the people peaceably to assemble, or to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution was crafted to help ensure five different fundamental freedoms, religion, speech, press, peaceful assembly, and to petition the government.

The Left of recent years has engaged in abuse of at least four of those rights. Here we will examine the first two of these leftist abuses of the First Amendment.

Abuse of the Freedom of Religion

166642911_123b31c585_mThe first freedom delineated in the First Amendment concerns religion.

 

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…

Every freedom is qualified by the condition that “Congress shall make no law…” which would restrict that freedom. The tragedy of modern jurisprudence is that this meaning has been expanded and twisted out of recognition, but that’s another article.

The Left in America has consistently abused the free exercise clause. This is done by claiming that almost any public venue must be free from religious expression, or the government is endorsing or establishing a religion.

A recent episode in Colorado illustrates the Left’s determination to abuse the freedom of religion. It involves the Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips.

Phillips had recently won a case against the Colorado Human Rights Commission at the Supreme Court. The Commission attempted to force him to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding against his religious beliefs.

SCOTUS rightly recognized that the government could not force Phillips to act against his sincerely held religious faith. Now, the Commission is after Phillips at the behest of a transgendered person who desired a cake to celebrate his ‘transition’ to female.

After the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips went all the way to the Supreme Court, he is in yet another asinine legal battle after refusing to bake a cake celebrating a person making a transgender conversion.

This newest idiocy serves only the purpose of trying to destroy religious opponents of the Left. It is outlandish enough for even leftist comic Bill Maher to pose a pertinent question in partial jest during his monologue.

“Is there only one bakery in Colorado?” Maher asked.

The obvious implication is that this particular bakery is being targeted by the Left’s anti-religious idealogues. That is abuse in its very essence.

A Selective Defense of Freedom of Religion

5402352896_31c50b2016_qHowever, in even more recent times the Left has taken to defending, the public expression of one religion, the religion of Islam. Here is one case from a recent article by Pamela Geller about a pro-Islam piece in USA Today.

 

“So, what actually subjugates Muslim women? It’s not Islam or hijab, but instead racism and Islamophobia.” So says Dalia Mogahed.

Really? Islam doesn’t subjugate women? Geller observes,

The sharia, which mandates that women cover their hair, is the only brutal, murdering ideology that gets such overt support. What other ideology that oppresses, persecutes, and subjugates gets such sanction? Whereas the crime is not condemned, just those pointing out the crime

Why, indeed does the Left seem to make an exception for Islam? Is it their own fear of seeming intolerant to a minority? Whatever the reason, there is a bitter irony in this action.

Should Islam succeed in its goals in America, the freedoms the Left says they value will be snatched away in an instant. Today’s naive idealist followers of an ephemeral Marxist paradise are no match for the ferocity of Jihadists nor the strictures of Sharia law.

Abuse of the Freedom of Speech

281730063_4e23efe9b8_mThe next bit of the First Amendment adds this to the list of freedoms Congress can’t touch.

 

 

…or abridging the freedom of speech

A plain reading of this amendment reveals that Congress, now judicially interpreted to mean the government at any level is not allowed to censor speech with certain exceptions.

For example, speech that might incite a violent riot or uprising is not protected by the First Amendment. Therefore the government can intervene to silence such speech.

The Left engages in abuse of this freedom in particular perhaps more than any other. Their tactics are simple.

Leftists loudly critique any speech from political or cultural adversaries and demand they be silenced. However, any methods the Left employs, including violence, are pushed as legitimate expressions of free speech.

There has been a multitude of examples which really began to up the violence quotient starting in 2017 with the rioting of Antifa at the University of California, Berkeley. This violent ‘protest’ was severe enough to prevent one Milo Yiannopoulos, a gay conservative, from speaking there in February of 2017.

Silencing the Opposition in the New ‘Public Square’

Modern technology has provided another tool for the Left to attempt suppressing free speech from conservatives. The public square is no longer the open arena.

6325794474_c2d28f6968_mSocial media has become the new ‘public square’ for America and the world. The meteoric rise of Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter allowed expressions and opinions to flow freely, at least initially.

That freedom spurred almost exponential growth. At first, the voices of the Left were dominant and conservatives were tolerated because of their relatively small numbers.

The conservative presence on social media began to grow rapidly and steadily gain influence. This was especially the case during the eight years of the Obama administration.

However, it took the surprise election of Donald Trump to propel the Left toward the silencing of conservatives in the new public square. In their view, it was the conservatives who prevented Hillary Clinton from being elected, and that was intolerable.

It also awakened the Left to the sizeable social media clout being wielded by conservatives and the effectiveness of their critiques of leftist philosophy and policy. The Left is now responding in the only way they can.

Since they can’t prevail in the war of ideas, they attempt to shut down opposing speech on the internet. A most egregious instance of this is the virtual banning of videos from Prager University by YouTube and Facebook.

The Case of Prager University

One of the first reports about possible censorship of Prager’s material concerned the ‘banning’ of some videos on YouTube’s platform in October of 2016. It began with a relatively small number, 21, of the educational videos.

YouTube has gotten in on the anti-conservative act. Prager University, which was created by conservative radio host Dennis Prager and offers short educational videos on a variety of topics from a Judeo-Christian perspective, has charged that Google-owned YouTube has been censoring a number of its educational videos by classifying 21 of them as “restricted.” Video titles such as “Are the Police Racist?,” “What ISIS Wants,” “Did Bush Lie About Iraq?” and “What is the University Diversity Scam?” have landed under YouTube’s “restricted mode.”

Prager’s short presentations involve a multitude of subjects and have never featured violence, any exhortations to violence, rudeness, sexually inappropriate material, racism, or vulgarity of any kind.

Here is one of Prager University’s offerings that are not “restricted” by YouTube at the present.

Nevertheless, at present, the active censorship of Prager U has expanded on YouTube and Facebook. 

Last Thursday, Prager University issued a public statement alerting its millions of Facebook followers to the fact that “our last 9 posts have been completely censored reaching 0 of our 3 million followers.

Facebook later apologized for this claiming that the censoring was a “mistake.” However, the harm was done, even though Facebook restored the videos. Moreover, they still have not explained how this “mistake” happened. Thomas Gallatin offers a reasonable explanation.

It’s increasingly clear that Facebook’s post-2016 algorithms are tilted against conservative perspectives, which are too easily flagged by trolls as content containing “fake news” or “hate speech.”

When the major providers of the space for a new ‘public square’ decide only one point of view is permissible, free speech is effectively eliminated there. Next time we will look at the abuse of freedom of the press and freedom to peaceably assemble, as well as possible solutions to the problem.

Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. John 8:43 [ESV]

Knowledge is Wealth

(For sharing, discussing, liking, comments)

PM meets Invictus Games athletes

Theresa May, PM and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson were at Horse Guards Parade to meet the 72 injured, sick, and wounded athletes from the military  representing UK.  It was a time of smiles and a photo shoot.  The Invictus Games  is wonderful idea of Prince Harry’s.  While travelling back to Britain from Afghanistan, he wanted to improve the quality of life for the injured fellow soldiers he was travelling with.  Soldiers from many countries are taking part and it has helped them in their journey of recovery. The Prince is busy with his wedding preparations an.  The Games will be held in Sydney, Australia in October.

U.N. Security Council Live

Live session of the U.N. Security Council was televised showing many countries, such as China, Turkey, South Africa and the EU with  the UK Ambassador to the UN as spokesperson calling on Israel to restrain from using live ammunition against the protesters.  This emergency situation arose due  to the killing of 62 Palestinians mostly young people.  Israel’s Ambassador to  the UN together with the US Ambassador was saying no country would tolerate attack on her border therefore the right action was taken.  The US rejected an inquiry into the matter and it has been suggested that the US has become part of the problem not the solution. Israel and US felt there were men from Hamas among the protesters and they were using the innocent prople as human shields In order to get through the fence.  It was a divided assembly even the U.N. Special    Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process spoke passionately about finding a solution quick before the situation worsens.  Two States, Israel and Palestine living next too each other  in peace is the goal to strive for.

Floods in South India, Go a and Sri Lanka.

Heavy rainfrainfall has caused flooding in South India.  The samegsame goes for Goa and Sri Lanka.

Royal Wedding Countdown

The World Press have arrived in the UK, specifically to Windsor for the wedding of the year. Saturday is the day and many tourists and well wishers have come too.  Wishing the couple well is the general consensus as to every problem there is an answer.

Inspirational Story

Where do you serve?

A nurse held a birthday party for her two year old.  She invited her colleague’s six year old daughter and the all the children had immense fun.  On the way home the six year old wanted her mother to take her to the Mall to look at toys, gifts and take pictures.  As children do, the little girl thought it was too early to go home.  While in the shop a lady dropped one of her items.  The nurse took it over and said, ” You don’t want to miss this precious item to give to your special someone.” The lady indicated it was for her mother, who is going to like it and the two shook hands and introduced themselves.  The nurse noticed the texture of the lady’s hands and mentioned that she must be busy.  “Oh yes, I serve in an airline company”, the lady replied.  The nurse added, “It must be exciting being an air stewardess.”

‘I served as an accountant for 5 years,  I had a great time serving there, I liked  numbers,  but I quit to study marketing.  Though suggesting she could probably still do both,  the nurse could see the steely determination of the lady.  They parted ways with another handshake and goodbyes.  What struck the nurse was the lady’s emphasis on the word ‘SERVE’.  She saw how ‘WORK’ always so sounded like ‘LABOUR’ This stranger had given her something to think about and share the essential essence of serving to many people.  Work is Labour that earns money or benefits.   Serve is service stretching out to help graciously with no demands for rewards yet it is motivating.

We normally ask, “Where do you work?”  So next time, try saying,   “Where do you serve?, or ” I serve in a …………company or in a hospital” as the case may be.  Remember your title or role doesn’t matter your heart matters.

O my Father! I haven’t got the slightest how to get out of this mood that I am in. To realize one’s deficiencies; one’s inabilities? It’s enough for a bad mood!

What’s the most depressing deficiency that troubles me?

That’s just it! I don’t even know what is it that troubles me, my Father? Perhaps the inability to let go of the insidious self-consciousness always lurking around no matter what I say or do!

No matter how certain I am? I can’t rid myself of the after the fact effect. I can’t get rid of that ‘humanly perfect’ concept. I can’t get rid of that insidious fear of repercussion.

Am I alone in this train of thought?

Perhaps that’s the human trend that humans so cleverly hide. Perhaps I’m opening a can of worms. Those hidden worms eating us up unaware.

Perhaps it’s You, my Father, the One opening that can of squirmy varmints eating me up unaware. Hum! Now I’m getting hot in the finding game, am I not, my Father?

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? Indeed! I have separated you to cleanse you with the experience of My written words. For what purpose? That you might be set-apart and faultless. That you might be in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things at My return.

Father? The Organized Church troubles me.

O my Beloved Father, You compel me to look around all the evil going on. I look around. I see the Organized Church as the greatest stumbling block for a closer relationship with You.

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 5:28 am.

What now, O my Father? Your plan of restoration consumes my being.

Your Presence within my being compels me in the Oneness with Your Being. Sunning myself on the roof I see luscious gardens. I see happy faces taking care of those garden. I hear sweet loving songs.

The disgusting clutter in the present roofs? The screeching noise that goes by the name of music now? The crying babies. The disturbing angry voices? All gone!

Even now while we are still breathing the polluted air on these earthly grounds?

Even now Your plan of restoration is in effect. You have dried my tears away. You have restored me. In Your Presence You keep me aloof from all evil no matter any and all circumstances of glee or gloom.

Yes, You compel me to look around and be astonished at what goes on in this insanity ridden world.

I look around. I am astonished. Multitude of young people obsessed with the knowledge from the Tree of Good and Evil, but! Not a clue of what they do.

Multitude of parents obsessed with the raising of super knowledgeable children to rule the future in this world.

Behold the Great Fallen Away!

Right now as I look around all that goes on with young and old? I am astonished! The written words are coming to pass exactly as those are written, but!

What is it that troubles me with what I see? All this NOT so new thing with positive thinking and success, success, success.

Goodness sake! I am a member of Success Inspirers World Organization, and? Am I against SUCCESS? How that figures, O my Father? How that figures?

It figures in My written words, My child. I have planted you in this organization of My most selected children for you to herald those written words to them, why?

To prevent My most elected children from the great fallen away. You see, My child, your enemy is as shrew beyond your wildest imagination.

The enemy is no longer working on injecting doubt into your heart as to My intentions to forbid you to eat from that tree. No. That has already taken place.

So what is the enemy’s agenda now? To make of you a super human—full to the brim with the knowledge of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ quite capable to be your own ‘god’.

What for is there a need to depend on Me if you can depend on your own self, but! That is something not quite visible because of the camouflage of good and beautiful.

The New Age movement of positive thinking with all its branches? Is nothing else but tinsels instead of gold.

Even so, the GOLD of My Presence is now shinning forth from the heart of My selected witnesses. The experience of My written words?

That’s My work in the heart of My witnesses. That’s what makes My Presence shine forth as pure GOLD from the hearts of my selected vessels.

Furthermore? My selected vessels are not called to ‘teach’ or to ‘minister’ or to ‘police’ and apply those words as they see fit to do so. NAY!

My selected vessels only task is to refrain from doing any of that by the power of their mind. The written words CANNOT be taught by the power of the human mind.

It’s My Spirit Who gives LIFE to those words, but! The human mind is set to interpret and misconstrue My written words.

Therefore? My reason to empower you to give up the dependence in the human mind and heart both yours as well as any other human’s mind and heart.

My reason for planting you in the midst of My children in this institution? You are to share the experience of the words I have made alive in your heart.

Yahushua, Founder and Perfecter of Our Faith

THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

Looking away [from all that will distract] to Yahushua, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of the Almighty.

What Sin?

What is the sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us? The sin of unbelief. We all brag about our beliefs, about our faith, but!

In real life? The Universities. The Doctors. The ‘Holy Ones’. The Worldly Famous. The Work of our hands? That’s the gist of our beliefs. That’s what we live by. That’s what is preached!

No kidding. I know the drill only too well, but! The power and wisdom from our Loving Father/Creator. He sent me a WITNESS. He turned me around, and? I saw!

What did I see?

The same thing the Father/Creator is now showing to all who has ears to hear and eyes to see. He showed me the utter arrogance of MY KNOWLEDGE!

I thought I knew Him when? I knew nothing period. Nothing about Him at all. Nothing about life. I was an educated fool!

O well? That’s my two cents to make the point of this writing. What am I to do right now?

Whether is liked or not? I am to proclaim to SIWO and the whole world, the TRUTH of the evil of what the world has programmed us to do on this SUCCESS thing. It’s written,

2Timothy 4:1-4

I CHARGE [you] in the presence of the Almighty and of Messiah Yahushua, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom:

Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.

For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold,

And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.

Dear Reader, none of us wish to hear such strong words. We are at the point that we only want to hear compliments and words of encouragement, but!

It’s imperative that we take these words, bitter as they are, in the same way we would take the most distasteful medication to heal our bodies.

NO! I am not against SUCCESS. I am for SUCCESS in hearing and understanding the intent of our Creator for creating us. He created us for 3 reasons:

  1. To love Him.
  2. To be loved by Him.
  3. Your Cherish Family O Mighty One? Forever To be!

Heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls

To that end? We work day and night to accomplish His plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation.

Those words are the heavenly ointment to heal our wounded souls. Wounded by the lack of Knowledge of His loving ways.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

How true. Only In Him We Can Find True Rest-Joy And Peace, But! …. We Miss It ALL?

LIL GIRL SKIPING IN RAIN
That’s me in my Father’s sight! A little 5 yrs. old skipping in the rain clad in a frilly dress with shoes & parasol to match. Your little girl skipping in the rain. Free from all the cares of this insanity ridden world. Clad with the attire of her childhood dream The attire of her childhood dream? Same as the destiny You have arranged for her. All perfect in the perfect center of Your will for me. 🙂

But! ….? We Miss It ALL …. ?

It goes right over the head of our human comprehension and emotional make up. It’s impossible for us human beings to find our Father/Creator by our own efforts to find Him.

It’s still, Friday, March 30, 2018 at 10:06 pm. Early today? Roxana inquired about my health. She shared with me she had prayed for me all night while she slept. One miracle after next, and?

I can’t Shake this Neglected Feeling of Resentment …. ?

You know all about it. You know I do not want this awful feeling, but! You have a reason for it. I wait on You. I’m going to bed. I need to rest. I am still not feeling well, but! I am much better than what I was last night. Thanks for Your provisions. I hope for the best in Your will not mine.

Cry unto You. That’s what I’ll do! … ?

Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 8:10 am.

I slept on and off through the night. This is the worst attack to my body in a long time. Every inch of my body hurt. The coughing, sniffing, and nose running is vigorous!

My mind? Spiraling down with a multitude of evil thoughts. Anger & resentment are knocking at my door. What to do? Cry unto You! That’s what I’ll do.

Indeed! Save me! Deliver me! I do not want any of this evil harassing me. I refuse to let any of the vileness coming in!

I live in Your Secret Place. I rest underneath Your everlasting arms. Though one thousand come against me in my left hand. Though ten thousand do so in my right hand?

The evil shall not come or affect me in any way shape or form. Your power no foe can withstand. You are my Shield and my Buckler.

What Do You Have In Mind For Me On This 7th Day Of Rest, My Father?…

Again, What Do You Have In Mind For Me On This 7th Day Of Rest, My Father? No doubt. On this 7th Day of Rest, Your mind is made up for me to REST!

Rest? How Am I To Rest Under These Conditions, My Father?

“O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? With you it’s impossible to do so, but! With Me? All things are possible.

  • I am aware of your pain.
  • I am aware of the battle going on in your mind.
  • Take heart.
  • It is all for the best.
  • Don’t give up in the brink of the greatest miracle you have yet to experience.
  • Hold on to My hand.
  • You are secured.
  • I will not let you go.
  • Forever resting in My Presence, resting underneath My everlasting arms?
  • You shall remain no matter what is happening in this insanity ridden world.
  • Go on!

O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart? Go on, joyfully walking and leaping and set on Me! Go on! By My Power Of Love & Wisdom From On High, go on!

It Never Fails. It Always Avails! It will always avail you in the worst and the best times. Now? You are ready for My required rest on this 7th day of the week.”

Indeed! Ready I am!

Now, ready I am. I will see about eating and drinking with a glad heart whatever You have supplied for me.  All angry and resentful evil thoughts? Gone! To be found no more. You have flung it all to the depth of the oceans of cleansing waters. Thanks my Father. In silence I worship You.

Sitting under the morning warm the tears flow. Tears?

It’s  now, 10:01 am. Thanks, my Father for the sunny day. Sitting under the morning warm the tears flow. Tears? Yes! Tears. Tears of joy and gratitude.

To think of the fearful miserable and domineering creature I used to be? Brings me to the thiaBasilia, child of Your heart that I am now. Your little girl skipping in the rain. Free from all the cares of this insanity ridden world. Clad with the attire of her childhood dream

The attire of her childhood dream? To think of it all?

Same as the destiny You have arranged for her. All perfect in the perfect center of Your will for me. To think of it all? Brings tears of joy and gratitude. No more fear. No more doubt. No more anything of that fearful creature that I used to be. I am free. Forever free to be!

Don’t know when I’ll post again whatever I need to proclaim …. ?

Dear Reader, don’t know when I’ll get to post about, Positive Direction From On High. I Have Not Known How To Approach The Matter Of Self-Love Without Offending Or Alienating Anyone.

Perhaps the timing is off yet. Father leads all the way. Thus, the post of today to continue expanding the previous post—to show the Creator’s continuing work in my life.

May it all bless you, dear Reader. Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂

 

What Is This? A Post In Honor To My Brother Ngobesing Suh Romanus’ Humble Spirit And Immense Compassion…

Purpose for this Post….?

This post is to confirm that really? I am not a wacko. My doings sound kind of wacky, but! That’s part of the destiny assigned unto me.

My Brother supporting the task assigned unto me? Confirms. Reassures. If to no one else? To my own self, the fact to be exact, I am not a wacko after all!

Phew! What a relief! Despite my doubts and fears or anyone elses’? The Father/Creator has placed me in SIWO, and there? His plan of restoration for the original intent for our creation is taking place. Amazing!

A Comment…

thiaBasilia 4:19 pm on January 9, 2017

My Brother,
Wonder if you will get to read this. First thing, as I told you before, your humble spirit and immense compassion are engraved in my heart. I see in you the esteem of my Father. Remember that.

I am now spending my time right here. What an honor! Two years we have been following each other. Why not coming to your blog before? Hum! Father has His plan. I do my best to mess Him up. I do my best to carry on my own but, very subtle, Father pays no mind to my whims!

I tried to get in when you first offered this great opportunity but! It did not happen. Why? It was not Father’s time. Now it is His time. This is the place He had planned for me to continue with His plan.

I will shut for the stars. I will share the dream He has placed in my heart. Hope I am not out of place. Here it goes.

Committed To Speak To Proclaim Truth? Yes, That I Am. Ready To Head For Bed? That I Am As Well.

Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 3:54 am
O my Father—O Father of mine? Thanks, for You have caused sleep to come my way for quite a few hours since yesterday. Sleep is a healing for the body. Now, where was I? Ah! Lamenting the impossibilities for mankind.

Even so? No two ways about it. Mankind is naturally inclined to achieve the impossible. Millions succeed in such quest. So, what’s the use to rehash the matter? The whole world is in a euphoric state of victory even in the sight of the disastrous conditions that surrounds us all, and?

“Poor Basilia”!

The Almighty Loving Father/Creator gives her a glimpse of restored areas to house the chosen while waiting for Yahushua’s return. Areas beaming with organic fields yielding vegetables & fruits free from harming chemicals to our minds & bodies. Flowering gardens for the bees to produce honey for the survival of the chosen. Areas where the chickens and the goats and the cows are not injected with chemicals geared to slowly kill the chosen, but! “Poor Basilia” is only able to see the impossibility of it all.

Regardless! Despite “Poor Basilia’s” limited outlook, with infinite love & patience, Father Yah teaches and guides His child. 

O thiaBasilia—O child of My heart? No need! No need! No need for impossibilities! I am with you and for you.

Isaiah 41:9-10 You whom I [the Master] have taken from the ends of the earth and have called from the corners of it, and said to you, You are My servant–I have chosen you and not cast you off [even though you are exiled].

Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your Almighty. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah! What kind of help do I need right now my Father, O my Father—O Father of mine? Perhaps help to wait. Perhaps incentive to do whatever it takes to occupy myself while I wait? Perhaps a way to get some honey? Perhaps a way to warm up my cold body?

Perhaps All I Need Is To Set My Gaze On You….?

Ah! My Father, O my Father—O Father of mine?

  • Perhaps all I need is to set my gaze on You.
  • Perhaps to consider all the work done in my heart and the heart of all by the power of Your love is all I need!

Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 1:36 pm.

Is turning out to be a very productive day. Once I set my gaze on You, automatically You gave me the incentive to do things I had left undone. I am now ready to close this post with a note of hope. It’s true. The project described above is not far from becoming a reality but! The project is of a magnitude not conceived in “Poor Basilia” mind.

Even so, as I pause & reflect, I see the immensity of the work already accomplished ….?

Even so, as I pause & reflect, I see the immensity of the work already accomplished in the hearts of Ahmad & yours truly. I see also our gifts. Ahmad is a gifted promoter of good causes. His heart is set one way: help the underdog. Me? Likewise, yeah, I am always looking out for my wants but, that does not stop me for the main purpose in my life, to love & help.

Beyond My Conception ….?

Now, it is Father promise to help us, to give us the means to bring such project to pass. How He is to do it? It’s somewhat beyond my conception. But in Psalms 37 He promises,

For yet a little while, and the evildoers will be no more; though you look with care where they used to be, they will not be found. But the meek in the end shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

The wicked plot against the uncompromisingly righteous—the upright in right standing with the Master; they gnash at them with their teeth. The Master laughs at the wicked, for He sees that their own day of defeat is coming.

The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows to cast down the poor and needy, to slay those who walk uprightly—blameless in conduct and in conversation. The swords of the wicked shall enter their own hearts, and their bows shall be broken.

Better is the little that the uncompromisingly righteous have than the abundance of possessions of many who are wrong and wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the Master upholds the consistently righteous.

The Master knows the days of the upright and blameless, and their heritage will abide forever. They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil; and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Master shall be as the fat of lambs that is consumed in smoke and as the glory of the pastures. They shall vanish; like smoke shall they consume away.

If you reading these lines…..?

Indeed! If you are reading these lines, no doubt you belong in the upright and blameless not because you are upright and blameless by your own efforts but, because Father is doing that work in you as it shall be revealed in due time.

My Tribe….?

Thus, it is my hope for you to become a member of my tribe—a united group of like-minded individuals with a  purpose in this life. Let’s all rejoice & be glad for our restoration is in the making for sure!

His love in my heart for all, thiaBasilia. 

My Brother, as you can see ….?

Father has already build me ‘My Tribe’ as you invited me to become an Author in SIWO. For the last few months He has sent my way many excellent teachers to teach me the way to make money with my gifted writing skills. Father tells me: ‘Do what they tell you but! Don’t do what they do. Write & publish. I’ll do the rest.’

So, there you have it my precious brother. I have come to My Tribe because Father is doing the rest. Hahaha! HalleluYah! Looking forward for whatever Father has for all of us. It’s no longer “Poor Basilia”. I am sporting the wealth of 50 likes in less than 2 days. Is it not Father’s work or what?

Much love for all, thiaBasilia. End of comment.

Much is happening since I posted last. The intended post for today is on hold until next time. When that shall be? I don’t know. Things are happening in the most unexpected good ways of the Father/Creator. My task? Write. Publish. Optimize. Wait for my Father to  do the rest. Title for next post?

“Positive Direction From On High. I Have Not Known How To Approach The Matter Of Self-Love Without Offending Or Alienating Anyone.”

That is if that is the Father’s plan for me to post next. Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.

Everybody gets to rejoice with me now, No exceptions! No more the grumpy face of the last few days. Even my gout is rejoicing with me!


Journal—An Ongoing Dialog Between thiaBasilia And Master Yahuwah/Yahushua. …

Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 3:54 pm

What Is It With The Push To ‘Love Ourselves’?

No it’s nothing wrong with loving ourselves. In fact we are supposed to do so. Why now the passionate ‘push? Maybe we are swimming in reverse.

We been swimming in the seas of hate for ourselves plus the fuss so long, so long. Now we are swimming in the seas of love and peace and all beautiful as it is to belong

Do we realize why we swim at all?

Why we swim the turbulent waters as well as the peaceful ones? Why we do what we do one way or the other?

Sure! Many have figured out such a puzzle, but!

Not many I hear tell what it should be told. As a whole is not a matter of love or hate. That’s only the buds of the root with no debate.

The root? No debate?

There is hate. Yes, the core of all our doings with no exception. With much perception. Indeed! The root of all our universal problems is ANGER, but not just anger in the general sense of the word. NAY!

What is ANGER   ?

Anger is the killer of all our good and noble intentions as well as the killer of the most depraved and corrupted ones, but!

What specifically kind of anger has come to my knowledge only recently?

  • We are ANGRY at two beings in our lives.
  1. The Mighty Being Who created us.
  2. The woman that gave birth to us.

Preposterous! No way! We love and take care of mom. We bless her. We go out of our way to show our love to our moms. Indeed we do!

And the Creator? For goodness sake! Don’t I see the most fantastic demonstrations of worship?

The music. The great sacrifices. The offerings. Wow! How can we be angry with a deity we claim to be ‘love’?

Ah! But we are. I never saw this before as I am seeing it now. Think about it dear reader, why all this amazing demonstrations of love for those two beings in our lives?

Granted, some mothers are well deserving of such love as we see fit, but whether the mother deserves it or not we feel compelled to love her. We go out of the way to show such love.

And we are angry with mother? And the Creator? Don’t we even sacrificed our lives to serve and honor Him? But! We are angry with both of them.

How can that be? How can we be angry with such Beings?

That’s what the Father/Creator has been driving at by letting us stew in our anger until we cry ‘uncle!’ Until we hit bottom just like any addicted one would do to overcome the addiction.

What is ANGER?

Anger is an addiction that no human being can really conquer. You’ll see. How long shall take for you to see? That’s the question and the answer I have no business meddling with.

The question and the answer I have no business meddling with. …?

I have greater matters in my way—gout pain? Much greater than meddling with somebody’s else’s gout! I am going on! Victory at last! Even my gout is rejoicing with me!

I been totally frustrated with my designing skills, but! Just now? I accomplished close to what I want to accomplish! Hahaha! HalleluYah! Take a look: https://www.thia-basilia.com/

Everybody gets to rejoice with me now, NO EXCEPTIONS! No more the grumpy face of the last few days. Even my gout is rejoicing with me! How ’bout you? And? How you been my dear Reader?

How is about a comment not just an awesome?

Even a couple of lines insulting me will come in handy. Hahaha! I’m a bundle of contradictions. Honestly.

One moment I am hassling the complementors like Ngobese. The next moment? I’m relishing his compliments. The next moment? I rather be insulted than complimented!

O dear! There is a time and a place to accommodate all my contradictions, and? A time and a place for yours as well.

Meantime and until the next post? His love in my heart for you and for all stays there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia. 🙂 🙂 🙂
