Mediocrity or Excellence-Our Choice

On 4/18/12, Glenn Beck did his second oval speech, Excellence Around Us which talks about getting Washington out of our lives by first not expecting Washington to fix our problem, but by fixing them ourselves.  Today, The fight for America is between two groups, The ones that aspire to excellence and the ones that want you to be mediocre.  As a former cab driver, who went into the poor Black neighborhoods of North Omaha for fares, I saw what happens when somebody leads you to mediocrity; to make you feel so worthless that you believe the Democratic lie that you can’t make it on your own.  I always felt depressed for these people; that they weren’t told or didn’t believe the promise of this country.

Now, Obama and his cronies are trying to make all of America the same way.  We have the choice in this election.  Although some of you don’t want vote for Romney this election, We have to or we will lose this nation forever.  Its your choice:  Obama or Romney;  Tyranny or Liberty;  Mediocrity or Excellence.


Glenn Beck announces Phase Two-Communism

Glenn Beck told on his show March 20 that we are in the next phase of the revolutionary system Obama and his friends want to put on us.  Glenn said that we are in Phase II: Communism.  I been thinking more and more of the same thing.  The ways our government and Occupy treat people are not from the playbook of Woodrow Wilson or FDR, but from Stalin, Lenin and Mao.  Then, the next day on his show, He gave what we should do:

  • Extricate yourself from debt to gain increased independence.
  • Buy local and, if you haven’t, connect with your neighbors to build a sense of community. Protection comes in numbers.
  • Be the best at your job.
  • Curb internet use — especially social media and tracking applications on smart phones and gadgets — and resume connecting with people face-to-face. It is important to build a realtime rapport with your neighbors and peers so that in the event of an emergency, you’ll know where to find each other. It also reinforces the knowledge that we are all individuals, not faceless members of the collective.
  • While the financial aspects may be prohibitive for some if not most, having access to land with a fresh water supply is crucial. If one is able to grow food, he or she will never go hungry, nor will one have to rely on the government for sustenance.
  • Read, particularly those volumes that speak to and fulfill one’s needs spiritually.
  • Keep a journal and a ham radio

I pray that we survive what is going to happen.

A plot of an episode of Castle sounds like it was taken from Glenn Beck

Spoiler Alert for Feb. 20 Episode of Castle

I finally had time to watch February 20 episode of Castle on my DVR.  Episode 16, “Linchpin”, is the conclusion of last weeks episode “Pandora” which Castle and Beckett get drafted by the CIA after a murder by a rogue agent.  Leads takes Castle and Beckett to a former CIA Analyst who figures out that a ‘vulnerability’ in our economic system that is the linchpin that would take down our entire nation.  Last weeks cliff hanger ends with the Analyst gets killed, and Castle and Beckett’s car is pushed into the Hudson with them stuck inside.

In this week’s episode, Castle and Beckett rescue themselves from the car.  Without telling the rest of the story, Castle and Beckett find out the linchpin of our economy, a daughter of an chinese industrialist who is influential in having Chinese buy our debt.  The bad guys try to have her killed and have it blamed on the CIA, which is used as a pretext to have China quit buying our debt, and starts a chain reaction of other events which eventually causes World War III.

I don’t know if the writers of Castle know, but for the last 4 years, Glenn Beck has been saying similar things.  The linchpin that Glenn said would start a reaction is not an assassination plot, like Archduke Ferdinand Moment, but the Revolt started last year in the Middle East by Tunisia which caused the Arab Spring.  Since then, The Middle East has been a powder keg of violence (like when isn’t a powder keg), causing governments to be overthrown and gas prices to soar.  This caused the prices of everything to go up even adding inflation.  Obama continues to spend like there is no tomorrow, and continues to sell more debt to the Chinese.  We are lucky that that the Chinese has not stopped buying our debt, but eventually they will.

Now, the part of World War III is happening also, but not the way the writers of Castle are saying.  The very same day the episode “Linchpin” was shown, Glenn Beck talked about his trip to Europe. Glenn and Freedomworks went overseas for a conference with members of ‘Tea Parties’ in Europe.  These people are trying to find out how to stop the march of the European countries toward and totalitarianism because of the unrest due to the financial collapse.  Some members spent all they had to get to this conference to find out what to do in their home countries.  Also, those same members of this ‘Global Tea Party’  were worried about our country and what may happen in the United States.

Glenn announced on his show that World War III had started, but the fight right now isn’t using guns and nuclear missile, but using economic terrorism, social media, and propaganda.  This world war is not a battle between countries, but a battle between ideologies.  ‘World War III’ will be between those who want freedom and smaller government versus those who want unlimited government and totalitarianism.  Now, it is time to decide what side you are on before it is too late.

Ba’al-He ain’t just a Goa’uld from Stargate

On Thursday February 2, Glenn Beck had Rabbi Daniel Lapin on about Ba’al from the Old Testament. The Rabbi discussed how this god from the bible is now worshipped unknowingly by many people. After watching this show, I had to write about this and the Goa’uld System Lord from the same name of Stargate Fandom of and what connections I may suggest.

Those who haven’t watched the Television show Stargate-SG1, or its successor series, and Movies, Goa’ulds are alien symbiotes which use human bodies to set themselves as gods throughout the Galaxy. The Goa’ulds ruling over humans who were sent to different planets, ruling with an iron fist, until the Humans from Earth come and save the day.
Now back to today’s Glenn Beck Program. The Rabbi talked about the Ba’al of the bible who is a god of nature, fertility, filth, and violence. That would make Ba’al in today’s society, the god of the Occupy Wall Street, the culture of death portrayed by the mainstream media, Muslim Extremists, and The Environmental Movement. Ba’al is worshipped today by sexual promiscuity by our youth; the dehumanization of man; the glorification of sex and violence on TV and film; and the further degradation of women and men by pornography.
Ba’al on Stargate-SG1 is similar to the one of the Bible; he is as ever sneaky as the one worshiped in reality. He is worshipped by people kept dumbed down, by himself. The Ba’al of the Bible is worshipped by people who are equally brainwashed by today’s schools and colleges. Ba’al of Stargate has no whims over using violence to keep control over his kingdom, and fights with other ‘gods’ to do so. Today, The Biblical Ba’al’s followers try to stop those who worship the God of Abraham, Issac, and Moses from having any sway over society by having a monopoly of all media, education, and faith. Both have fanatical followers who do His every whim. On Stargate, they are the brainwashed fanatical Jaffa, while the Ba’al in reality has OWS, Muslim Brotherhood, Environmentalists, Union Thugs, etc…

In the Bible, there are actually multiple Ba’als or in Hebrew, Ba’alim for nations surrounding Israel who worship him. In Stargate, Ba’al clones his body and his Goa’uld symbiote multiple times so he can be in different places at once.
Finally, In Stargate fandom, The good guys from Earth finally defeat all the Ba’alim and save the world.
In the Bible, Ba’al is fought by The God of Abraham and his followers in the constant fight of good versus evil, but Ba’al always waits in the background for Humanity to worship him again like today. My hope is that we become a moral nation again and defeat Ba’al, like on Television.

First Post- “So this is how liberty dies…with thunderous applause.”

This is my first post. I plan to use this site to tell people my musing of politics and the culture.  I got the idea from watching the Glenn Beck show on GBTV, when he started talking about Star Wars Episode Three where Palpatine talks about reorganizing the Republic with the Galactic Empire. The Galactic Senate applauds. Then, Senator Padme Amidala tells Bail Organa, “So this is how liberty dies…with thunderous applause.”

Well, I don’t plan to let the U.S. to end in applause. I plan to show what insights I have through a Conservative perspective.

I hope you join me.
