When the Saints come marching in…

Sylvia Shawcross

Well that is a relief right? Here we all were…. okay… some of us… okay… maybe ‘those people’ were worrying with all that is going on that the Apocalypse was on the way, but we’ve been given a very good sign indeed. There is hope people!

Apparently, the Vatican wants all its money brought home and this can only mean that the Pope is far more focussed on finances than the Second Coming. So it’s good people.

God is in His/Her Heaven and all is right with the world. (But don’t get me started on pronouns—I’m saving that for another article.)

Our concerns must remain with the material world as usual and not any kind of spiritual or moral transformation or anything. All that peace, love thy neighbour, do unto others stuff—that’s all so old-fashioned anyway given our Woke generation operating on smartphones with its instant self-gratification. That’s all too much work and best we stick with what we now know.

Of course, some of the cynical amongst us say the Vatican is doing this just to pay off all the scandalous legal cases but why would the Pope have that as a priority if the Rapture was nigh?

Anyway, the important thing to remember is that we can turn this all to our advantage. Yes, that involves bringing back all of the most draconian covid laws we have available consolidated from around the world—like those from China and Quebec, Canada (where I endure).

We have no other choice.

But not for us people. We need to bring them back for our political leaders. And only our leaders.

Think of the lives and the money and jobs we’ll save!

If only we’d known this before this all started we’d have avoided a great deal of grief.

It’s entirely for their own good. We need to protect them from themselves and each other. And most importantly to save the planet of course.

They seem to have gone off the deep end. Right now, e.g. it appears they’ve taken the notion of “you are what we want you to eat” to heart and think of us all as insects. We seem to be in the way, annoying and expendable. They’re even building smart city gulag hives for us. They’re not even hiding it anymore.

I’m sure that’s all because of the masks, they’ve lost track of our human faces and they all appear to have very short attention spans. I mean, how can we trust them? They do and say outrageous things and then deny they ever said them. “Walk the talk back” is the newest game in town.

And leading politicians in words and actions are saying it doesn’t matter what voters think. It is all rather disconcerting.

The problem is mostly when they get together.

On so many levels.

You can almost see climate change wafting up into the sky over their meetings there are so many yachts and private jets in use as transportation. I’m fairly sure they don’t have crickets on their gold-trimmed bone china plates with matching silk napkins.

Whenever they get together to alleviate any given situation and realize their lofty goals they seem to make it worse.

Somehow sustainable development has warped into fear over nuclear stand offs. Elimination of starvation has morphed into a mass media frenzy of daily reports of famines or flooding causing famines or food factories burning down.

The peace train has gone off the rails and the military-industrial complex has taken over control of the station and all we see are long trains of tanks and missile launchers to keep us frightened. Diplomacy has turned into comedy.

Lofty ideals of clean energy has turned into panicked fears of freezing to death in the dark. Alleviating poverty and providing jobs has ended up as tent cities, living in cars and four part-time jobs if you’re lucky just to buy a can of chicken.

Tolerance is turning into totalitarianism and the only national pride we’re allowed to feel these days is for the Ukrainians. Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with that but I’m just saying….

You’d almost think it was deliberate. But that would be a conspiracy theory so let’s just ignore that. What’s that saying: Never attribute to malice what can be chalked down to foolishness?

So that’s not even covering what’s happening privately when our esteemed political leaders can be caught in dirty-dancing parties or having sex in hallways with their not-spouses. If only Boris Johnson had chosen to have his wild hair tamed during lockdown instead of wildly partying it up maskless he might still be in power.

If they weren’t feasting publicly with friends during lockdown, they were doing cocaine and heaven knows what else while making all sorts of dubious backroom deals, insider trading and bathing in nepotism. It doesn’t give us a lot of faith in their choices for Cabinet.

Whether on a personal level or professional level these political leaders are exhibiting some very questionable and hypocritical behaviour. I think they need to understand, that once as leaders they own nothing they’ll be much happier. When all their yachts and jets disappear and they are eating bugs, the environment will be happy and cows of New Zealand will flatulate methane in a peaceful world, and we’ll all be happy and that will be the end of the story.

It is entirely for their own good.

It will however be hard to tell them that once global ID interconnectedness is working we won’t need politicians, elected or not. We’ll just all vote for each and every issue and true democracy will arrive. Then we can all be mesmerized watching the results on our cellphones.

Yep. We won’t need them at all.

It’s just a suggestion. I could very well be wrong. It just seemed logical at the time of writing. Maybe tomorrow it will be different. If there is a tomorrow.

P.S. There are some of us out there in the world who do not care if it is the Ukraine or Russia that is mucking about with that nuclear plant. This is because IT IS A NUCLEAR PLANT for heavens sakes! Can you all just for one little moment consider that fact? Stop squabbling and stop mucking about! The bunch of you! Just stop it right this instant!

 …the Vatican is doing this…
In my opinion because they expect or even will boost major no compliance, riot-like events as they need it to implement martial law. There is no way otherwise they could carry on the pandemic game with compulsory vaxxes and quarantine – and they need those.
While they need to protect their wealth, probably easier to do in this way.

Under Heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness.

All can know good as good only because there is evil.

Therefore having and not having arise together.

Difficult and easy complement each other.

Long and short contrast with each other;

High and low rest upon each other;

Voice and sound harmonize each other;

Front and back follow one another.

Therefore the sage goes about doing nothing, teaching no talking.

The ten thousand things rise and fall without cease,

Creating, yet not possessing,

Working, yet not taking credit,

Work is done, then forgotten.

Therefore it lasts for ever.

This is not quite right and probably something lost in translation. You really do not need evil or ugliness to know the good and the beautiful, but perhaps the evil and the ugly are what you get once you stop appreciating the good and the beautiful.

Darkness it not the opposite of light- it’s just the absence of light. Once you understand this, there is no more fear.

I’ve been wondering whether during the Queen’s 10 or 12 day funeral they will read her will and discover that, like Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, she left her fortune to her beloved subjects.
Now I’m wondering whether after the pope collects all that money together at the Vatican Bank he will resign or die and dispose of it the same way.

Matt Ehret has picked up a piece by Winter Oak which begins

“When the Great Reset was officially launched in 2O2O, it was not done so by Klaus Schwab or Bill Gates, but by Charles, Prince of Wales, heir apparent to the British throne.
Born in Buckingham Place in 1948, Charles is best known worldwide for his failed marriage to Lady Diana Spencer, who died in a road crash in Paris in 1997, a year after their divorce.

“His official website announced on June 3 2020: “Today, through HRH’s Sustainable Markets Initiative and the World Economic Forum, The Prince of Wales launched a new global initiative, The Great Reset”.

“A royal tweet declared: “#TheGreatReset initiative is designed to ensure businesses and communities ‘build back better’ by putting sustainable business practices at the heart of their operations as they begin to recover from the coronavirus pandemic”.

[This is the definitive, detailed article that establishes “he is the head (or the very willing figurehead) of a vast empire of nefarious financial interests hiding hypocritically behind a facade of charitable philanthropy.”]

I recommend it highly!!

Sylvia, now don’t get mad about this little spam, but I was stupid to write it anyway. I rely on our good relations from her previous publication, so to speak – already “I have connections” (this is a term for corruption in my country, I do not know what the slang in the West is). 😄 

So, there is no god (so – with small letter) and everything is in the hands of the people. This is good because it removes additional distraction and concentrates the mind on dealing with pressing problems. It remains for the people freed from superstition and dogmatic church chains to take control of current events in their own hands and deal with the problematic situation.

If it comes to the final version, in which only separate communities, such as small communes, etc., are the only options for salvation, then it is likely that tested people, intelligent, capable and moral, will gather in them and form a healthy community. I guess the resetors won’t mind letting them do whatever they see fit. At least I hope so, because otherwise they will not have any brake (as they have not had in many previous cases, some mentioned below).

In larger communities there is already the old problem of restraining the transgression of morality, of the human. Then, if the transgressors of morality do not correct themselves, and it is clear that they will not correct themselves, what will the community do with them? I’ve been thinking in this regard about before 2020; let’s say we go back and also that the good people succeed in some amazing way to take power. We remove the high authorities, the smaller ones below them, and there remain a significant number of corrupt people, all kinds of criminals, degraded people of all kinds, and there remain gays and transgender people, who I suppose would be detrimental to society to hang around mostly children, parents who already have control probably wouldn’t want to.

What would a society based on really sound values and morals – the ones we are now fighting to preserve – do, and with fair observance of the rules, a fair trial, and so on? (I have no idea how, but it’s just the idea of a world in the hands of decent people.) What would you do in general with a significant number of people who only harm and would harm even more in the future because it is clear that they will not change? Some separation from society-again: especially for the sake of the children – seems to me imperative. Or with technological surveillance systems similar to the ones coming, keep everyone under surveillance, correcting instantly/promptly those prone to breaking norms?

I just wonder how this will work with a significant number of such people who are already here and exist. (Moreover, people who are now ready to obey will still be inclined to do so, thus creating an appetite for dictatorial tendencies in more wayward but not very moral people.) Before 2020.I was wondering.and I don’t find many humane answers.

Paul, why Are you in such a hurry to mess me up with your own narrow-minded notions about people you’ve formed an opinion about? I have no doubt that God exists; if we can measure, it may turn out that I am in the threesome of the most believers, but you have already judged the opposite.  I started my spam with the premise,” so there is no God (so – with a small letter) and everything is in the hands of the people”, to ask from afar and people who do not believe what would prevent them from acting in a manner similar to the globalists (and whatever we call them) of power today.

But you jumped like a tiger.:) I don’t blame you for not reading what I have written before, but this is exactly what I say there many times: since there is no god, what exactly would prevent the power/Kabbalah/globalists from doing what they want. And also that when there is no God, there is no hope, there is a wild fear for the bodily and everything has no meaning – the sheep is just preparing for slaughter. And other things, same as what you’re saying. But you have already judged (because of my remark about Fiat probably).

What’s the hurry? Who’s the narrow minded in this case? What are you doing, you stupid bastard?

Maybe. I don’t know what kind of keyboard warrior I am, given that about 10 years before 2020 I didn’t have a computer, by personal decision, because I have a very negative opinion about its impact on a person and a community of people. Yes, we must act face to face; Act better, more wisely, which will bear fruit from a more cohesive community (at the very least). And I’ve been doing it for a long time-in the best way I can, which at least slightly improves the relationships between the people I come into contact with. Because the connection between people is of great importance when there is a great danger like we have today. Otherwise, many facts, knowledge can be shared, but if there is no good connection, if everyone does not try to be better and improve their relationship with others, knowledge will sink into the fog of tyranny, which will easily defeat divided communities.

Sorry for the offence at the end of the comment, that was my mistake. If I could edit it, I’d delete it.

Well plino, if in fact everyone got to vote I’d want everyone to vote–including those you believe must be excluded for whatever reason because you see, that’s democracy. That is also the full panoply of the human condition: the good, bad and the ugly. The perfect small community you mention is too exclusive for my tastes. WHere are the wise elders or the disabled? If societies can be measured by their treatment of widows and orphans, the society you propose is perhaps starting off rather darkly. And whose morality is the yardstick to measure by? As to gay and transgender people hanging around children, I wouldn’t hesitate if they were kind, compassionate, caring and knowledgeable individuals. I would, in other words, treat them and judge them as I would any human–on the content of their character. We can choose love or we can choose hate. We can choose compassion or judgement in looking at our fellow humans and in what we hope to achieve. Love and compassion tend to be stronger IMHO. I don’t think the great reset will allow for communes in the outback. They seem to be pretty clear that people will live in smart cities surrounded by communal farms, wildlife preserves and some parks we’ll be allowed to visit. The Amish I hear are being attacked in the States somewhere for their onsite abattoirs. We will all be assimilated I’m afraid. As to the hardcore criminals, well.. the greatest thing we have in the west is the concept of innocent until proven guilty. It is a way to prevent mob justice. There are things in the Great Reset that are not so bad such as creating some form of reconciliation that will in time prevent the societal conditions that lead to such broken lives. I don’t know the whereins and outs of all of that but i certainly wouldnt be killing them or locking them away necessarily. It is a good question that. 🙂 Maybe attaching virtual reality happy vision goggles to take their minds off being imprisonned? well.. maybe not. But then again, all of these things I believe sit heavy on my heart in a time of war which is where we are.

Cultural comparativism is the rub here.
Humans seem to function harmonically in groups not exceeding around 144 individuals. Any larger than that and schisms appear… When Inuit people were observed leaving a child on the ice and walking away leaving it to perish, European anthropologists were out raged… yet the child was one too many for the family as a whole to survive and if they didn’t sacrifice the child they would all perish. In Rome an infant was inspected at birth and if their were abnormalities it was put to the sword…Same thing with cremation vs. burying… some cultures found it an insult for one to do it and the others not to do it. Others ate the dead to acquire their knowledge..etc there are a plethora of examples. Neither are right or wrong… they just are.

You speak grandly of me, yet I am but a humble servant for these cute human being things that we made a few million years ago…

Initially we engineered them as a joke for our pet dinosaurs (who by the way are very gentle, loving and kind and also possessed the most kaleidoscopic plummage which is not represented in the human beings mortuary museums) to play with but, as usual, things got out of hand and Dad made all these flood and fire rants which killed off most of our pet dinosaurs (the original peoples of this world who built many amazing megalithic architectures) and quite a few of our human beings…

The true history is almost beyond the indoctrinised and contorted imaginations of the institutionalised human who have been forced into forgetting their true and playfully joyous natures by Dad’s dumbed down versions (he really is a bit of a tyrant)…

The Tao was written as an anti-dote for this happenstance many millennia ago… and you know this… for it is you who are truly wise in your countenance and also majestic in your subjective objectivity.

Surprise… The actual “Satan” is identical with “Yahweh”… there is no “good” christianity versus the “bad” church. Early christians were not peace loving hippies, they were the Taliban of their time – uneducated slaves turned into murderous maniacs possessed by the so called “god”of the “tribe”.. they thought they were rebelling against the Roman Empire, when in fact they were providing the means to continue its rule, in service to Yawheh / Satan (later also under the guise of “Allah” ) whose aim is the enslavement of humanity to the tribe. This aim is quite clearly stated in the Old Testament.

Please don’t conflate the Pope and the catholic religion with all belief in God, or religion itself. It’s one of any number of Christian religions, and there are many other religions that are not Christian. Freedom is life, and it’s very important we are free to believe what we choose, because even our beliefs or non-beliefs are changeable over time as we grow in our understanding.

Corporate Religion

Corporate religion is a powerful control mechanism which is why so much effort goes into creating major religions such as the subsidiary monotheisms. Post hunter gatherer societies require these religions. They help channel the energy of people into useful pursuits, shape behaviour and provide succour in times of fear and grief. On the dark side they can be used to ignite bloodbaths. As convid has demonstrated the leaders of these “faiths” are controlled from above and will drive their “flocks” to extinction if instructed to. Christianity unabashedly refers to it’s adherents as sheep or flocks. The man made cow is sacred to the Hindus. There is less freedom of worship that we imagine. The Roman empire made Christianity the sole religion for it’s subjects. Corporate religion doesn’t have much to do with the God of creation, an eccentric but brilliant entity that created this radiation and meteorite free oasis which eventually produced the coral reef and the Eastern rosella.

That about sums it up.

You forgot the mRNA culling. All those healthy innocent people that are now dead, maimed and sterile. And doctors still can’t figure out why young healthy people are dropping like flies. Imagine that.

Keep in mind we are talking about The Catholic Church and not Christianity.

If everyone tithed (like God calls for in the Bible), our problems would be much smaller. General rule (which no one follows): 10% of every check goes in the bank for when you are old. 10% goes to the church. You live off of the rest (after taxes, that is).

The fly in the ointment is government taxation, of course. Government knows how to spend money better than God.

Most not for profits follow a close 2nd behind government where they use 80% or more of their funds to pay for their administrations. Many get their money exclusively from government grants. It sort of makes sense, I guess.

Government knows better than God.

Of course they know. The ones not speaking out are in on the lies. They would rather kill, maim and sterilize instead of risking their credibility and livelihoods. I am sure that few of them can sleep at night knowing full well what they have done and are doing. No different than running a Nazi concentration camp. Robert Malone admitted that the body of people guilty of crimes against humanity is so large that it would be devastating to the medical community if they were all brought to justice. That argument is moot given how devastating the mRNA vaccines have already been to the populations. It would be irresponsible to not bring them to justice. Fear of reprisal should not be deterrent for medical staff given the magnitude of injuries and deaths. Following simple ethical principles should have been enough to stop the nonsense. The longer they resist the the stronger the penalties should be. In terms of losing medical professionals, who would want to be treated by a doctor who made the decision to continue jabbing his patients while knowing they were dangerous? And they do know. All these doctors should have stepped down and refused to jab innocent healthy people. They chose themselves over their patients. Not rocket science.

Like Yogi Berra said, “It’s not over til it’s over” and it’s not over. Biden just declared last week that he wants the entire population jabbed with the latest vaccine. Like I have said in other strings of discussion, “They want us gone”. The unvaccinated are walking proof of their lies. We are the ones carrying their burdens. The burdens of proof that can send them to jail for crimes against humanity. They want us gone. Going mute isn’t going to help anyone.

No one can touch Carlin for stand-up. Pure genius. But is it time for such babyboomer cynicism? All-consuming cynicism is a cowards way out in times like these. And it is as easy as it gets to go there. It does none of us any good ultimately. It might make us all look fashionably clever but it does not hold the heart or free the soul. We are better than that. Most of us. It is much harder to find hope. That’s where the courage lies. At the end of the day, there really are no atheists in foxholes. God, however conceived, is not religion. That is simply my opinion.

George occasionally undertook masonry work as a side gig , not written about but those of us who knew him understood his love of various grades of limestone. He charged for it though (and quite rightly) as such it is inaccurate to say he was a free mason. He was rather expensive but worth every penny.

Baby boomers are far from the only ones feeling very cynical about the world and its circumstances these days.

With that said, I agree, the world needs hope. Demoralization is what the cabal is trying to do to us all throughout their implementation of the Great reset.

However, there is also, far too much
“Hopium” being shoveled upon people by controlled opposition groups like qanon, Etc as well.

I’m of the opinion that full disclosure of Truth and facts and an unbiased understanding and assessment of our circumstances and who has created them by “shaking the jar”, should ultimately inspire all of us “red and black ants” in the jar to gather the courage AND hope necessary to put aside ALL the petty differences that
the ELITISTS try to keep us DIVIDED
and DISTRACTED with, and Stand United around the world once and for all and shut them DOWN.

Until we CAN all agree, around the world to DO this, all of the hope and hopium, in the world..

is just THAT.

Sitting still and “trusting the plan”
while they move ever forward with their agenda and great reset.

Give “The Most Dangerous
Superstition” by Larkin Rose,
a read for a much needed
perspective on this.
I think everyone would be glad
they did.

Great article, by the way.

Thank you Jackal. I’ll add that book to my list. I’ve taken people to task for their ridiculous hopium myself in the last year or two. But at the end of the day we’re going to have to do something to prevent this fatalistic despair that’s going on. Wasn’t it Frankl who said people can endure anything if they know the “why?” The “why” provided by the Great Reset is environmental over people but not sure how they plan to make solar-panelled intercontinental missiles myself. I do believe with all this that “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” That’s hope.

There’s a whole world of easy – and frankly smug – mocking of social mores. The kind of thing that issues with “This is the way we are now” and which is so attractive because it doesn’t commit the speaker to anything. The post-covid world has starkly shown up a divide between those still stuck in that old “comfortably numb” mode and those waking up in a cold sweat who realise that This is war.

The Vatican includes the Book of Revelation in its approved New Testament in contradistinction to say the Book of Enoch (which I find far more interesting from a woo woo standpoint). The question might revolve about whether the concept of the Rapture can be separated from the Second Coming. I tried to re-read Revelations this year on the basis of its actual prophetic value, particular in regard to “the mark of the beast.” In general, I found it rather pathological in relationship to anything sexual. Also all the angels dancing around the throne of God praising him sounds rather pathetic and boring. Like the Source of Everything needs its creations to praise it constantly. Indicative of a very weak ego structure. OTOH, I could see it if this “God” were the malformed Demiurge.

But it is apparent that there are certain valid prophecies in the Book, not the least of which is the mark of the beast. But one might argue that our Overlords are mimicking this part of the scripture with its rollout of its technocratic neofeudal dystopia to strike additional fear and dread into religious Christians in order to manipulate them..

“Never attribute to malice what can be chalked down to foolishness” most definitely does not apply to those who have power. They didn’t get to be in that situation through foolishness. Nor is it true that a ruling class who have been in power for generations become foolish. If anything, they work to consolidate and perpetuate their power. Therefore, when it comes to the rulers, the rule is:

Never attribute to foolishness what can be chalked down to malice.
