In my search for alternative news on Operation Jade Helm 15, I came across something I wasn't looking for.  Isn't that the way it goes?  To be honest, I've been just a bit more than cynical over this Operation Jade Helm 15.  With everything going on in this country, I think now is not a good time to play war games at home.  I've had a number of theories as to the real purpose of this "exercise" and even considered the possibility that there was something more ominous behind Jade Helm.  I've tripped over a couple of possibilities, but with no official media coverage, confirmation is impossible to verify.

One article at all news pipeline suggests FEMA vans are rounding up the homeless for extermination.  I am not yet that conspiranoid, but I have been wondering for several years now, with all these foreclosures and layoffs, just where are all the homeless?  I've chosen to think most are living with family, but I also know there is an actual homeless population in larger cities.  It was obvious in Joplin, until the 2011 tornado.  Since then, I haven't see the homeless so much.  Now, that I think about it, I'm not sure what happened there, but FEMA was definitely a long term presence . . .  There is now a "campground" with several FEMA trailers in it, that appears to afford freedom of movement, so I hope the drop in the homeless population has been resolved in a good way.  

As I read the article linked, when Tulsa became the topic, I couldn't help but configure a couple of dot connections.  I still am not thinking there are white vans that are crematoriums on wheels, but . . . there are cities who have reportedly rounded up their homeless to relocate them.  We know there are laws against giving food to the homeless in many cities now, and many laws about vagrancy.  I believe the first city I read about "rounding up the homeless" was somewhere in one of the Carolinas.  Now, back to Tulsa.  Tulsa stood out because of the recent sudden Wal-Mart closing for plumbing problems.  That store had it's pharmacy closed right away, as well.  I do know this first hand, as I spoke with the home office about it back in the spring.  I just can't help but wonder if the closed WalMart is housing the disappearing homeless.

Since the media has been banned from reporting, it is difficult to actually verify anything about Operation Jade Helm 15.  I've tried to follow military sites and have found what I hope is a pretty reliable news source.  If I wasn't operating the homestead, I suppose I could leave my press pass at home and "vacation" in one of the states hosting the exercise.  One report explains that Operation Jade Helm 15 is almost a "remote control" exercise, in that it is dictated by artificial intelligence from a computer program known as Jade II.  As I considered the possibilities of this, several things came to mind.  If this is the case, it doesn't really matter where the boots are on the ground . . . So, we can go either way with this.  We can get all conspiranoid and know Big Brother can show up any time any place on we the people, and that be that . . . or . . . all those Islamic camps that are reportedly known, can be dealt with, without boots on the ground!

Only time will tell which way that will go.
And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.  ~  words of Messiah

The 2016 Presidential campaign appears to already be underway, and the choices . . . well, seem "all American."  Although I no longer participate in the election process, I do pay attention to the process.  The American political system has seemed very orchestrated throughout my adult years, but I don't want to become completely cynical and jaded.  I basically gave up on the political system back in 1980, when the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran said Americans would die if Carter was re-elected.  Now all these years later, Americans want to rant about Obama catering to Iran . . .  I remember 1979 and 1980, America kowtowed long before I ever heard of Obama.

I don't believe a President has actually led this country since Eisenhower, and he brought some ideas to the table that were a few of Hitler's "successes" like the autobahn and medical advancements.  His friendship with Prescott Bush was probably a good political move, if not for him, definitely for Mr. Bush's descendants.  Kennedy came in as a leader, but he didn't play the game that was required and we know how that ended.  JFK was the last president that attempted to actually lead the country.  Although Johnson billed his "great society," he wasn't an actual leader, he simply responded to social demand and economic opportunity.  The division in the nation over Viet Nam replaced the racial division, and "divide and conquer" was established.

The government no longer represented the people, nor did the president lead.  The Nixon years were an attempt to recreate the Eisenhower years, as he'd been the VP, but it didn't happen.  He didn't appeal to the boomers, the way Eisenhower appealed to their parents.  Then the whole Watergate mess, ended in his resignation, just a few months after the VP had resigned, so it became obvious the real powers that be controlled 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  Gerald Ford entered the White House in 1974, and was never elected to the office of President.  Carter was elected in 1976.  Within a year, he was blamed for an already struggling economy, which did not fare well with Americans.  We didn't care about his religious beliefs, we wanted lower interest rates and higher wages!

Moving right along through the Reagan years, I have to wonder just how powerful Bush 41 was through that time.  I'd like to remind everyone that there were arms deals with Iran through those years.  The Iran-Contra hearings that took place in the 80s ultimately resulted in Oliver North and John Poindexter being found guilty, but then the convictions overturned on appeal and charges were not refiled.  So, in a nutshell, it appears that Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North threw himself on the grenade, took the initial hit, then an overturned verdict that ultimately just made the problem vanish . . .  No more questions asked and no more answers given.

This, of course, kept the American attention while Bush 41 actually obtained the Oval Office.  I will say this, as I watched the discourse of the Iran Contra hearings, when President Reagan looked so lost and said, "he didn't remember," I knew he wasn't lying.  The early stages of Alzheimer's was obvious in his troubled expression, which caused me to wonder how many other things he was unaware of, while Bush 41 was nearby.  Bush 41, his thousand points of light, and his speech mentioning the global economy with a "New World Order" should have been a wake up call.  I guess it was, to a point, in that he wasn't elected to a second term, but his successor, Bill Clinton, completed his NAFTA plan.  We can clearly see now, that Bill Clinton and Bush 41 get along famously, and 43 is in a photos with Clinton as well.

Obama promised change, and some folks think we've changed suddenly for the worse, but I see it just as a further degradation of the direction we were already going.  There have been some "open" changes, but truthfully it's only in the fact the course has gained momentum.  As we can already tell from this new campaign season, candidates are going to say what they think the people want to hear, and if it's in their best interests, they'll serve up what the people want.  Unfortunately, this now brings us to the current lot of candidates.  To be honest, I was almost reconsidering my decision to not vote, when Dr. Ben Carson appeared on the scene.  He's a man of convictions, he is the perfect example of "anyone can be anything they want if they work at it," he's a 7th day Sabbath keeper, and kosher I believe.  He's retired, so he's no longer in the medical system, I thought . . . and then in one statement, he completely lost me.  He would make vaccinations mandatory and remove all exemptions.  So, that was that.  I'm, once again, content to be on the political sidelines watching the "mock" two party tennis match.

Since candidates now, really only concern themselves with the best interest of their financial supporters and reflect the mentality of their sheep, American politics is really dirty.  As for the current line-up.   Hillary appears to have the democratic nomination tied up.  She's tired and tiring . . . The GOP has so many running, it's hard to even sort through the rhetoric of who says what.   In one interview, I'm guessing Jeb Bush has received a healthy donation from Monsanto.   Obviously Ben Carson has good support from Big Pharma.  Considering reality television and the "big revolution" of spouting opinions on social media, it only makes sense that Donald Trump is leading the pack . . . He gets everybody all wrankled and Americans love to be wrankled about something.  He's a business man who knows how to play his bankruptcies while living large. He blasts the media regularly, and republicans love that, thanks to Rush and Sarah P.  Donald Trump is truly the epitome of the American spirit.  Nobody truly knows how he got where he is, he's stayed famous longer than the Kardashians, and he is boisterous.  What a promising future.  We're tired of empty promises, we are ready to embrace empty bluster.

Opening Day ???????????

Operation Jade Helm 2015 has officially begun . . .  So far, it seems to have all the impact of a pin dropping at a rock concert.  To be honest, I wasn't expecting a big bang for the beginning, but now in retrospect, we have already been conditioned to military style policing.  I've seen military style vehicles in the news for local law enforcement for a number of years now.  This photo is from Texas in 2008.

SWAT teams have been busting small homesteads for a few years, as well.  There was the big bust in Kansas, in town, a few years back, not even on a homestead but in the burbs, for a grow light that was ordered online.  The powers that be found hydroponic squash and tomato plants, in the basement!  We've been living under a militaristic style of policing long before Operation Jade Helm 15 officially began!

The Leawood Kansas couple filed a law suit.  Here are a couple of paragraphs contained in an article in March of 2013.  The "bust" took place in April of 2012, so oppressive policing and has been going on awhile.
“If this can happen to us and we are educated and have reasonable resources, how does somebody who maybe hasn’t led a perfect life supposed to be free in this country?” Adlynn Harte said in an interview Friday.
The suit filed in Johnson County District Court said the couple and their two children — a 7-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son — were “shocked and frightened” when deputies armed with assault rifles and wearing bulletproof vests pounded on the door of their home around 7:30 a.m. last April 20.
“It was just like on the cops TV shows,” Robert Harte told The Associated Press. “It was like ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ ready to storm the compound.”

Television programming and movies have certainly desensitized the seriousness of what has been being put into place.   We seem to have gotten to the place where we tend to view headlines and entertainment with a similar perspective.  News is very sensationalized and headlines are intended to "grab."  Everything pumps the adrenaline while making one feel most of the news is somehow distant and even though nice people get treated like criminals, it would never actually happen to us.

While the gay agenda appears to be targeting Christian businesses we need to remember there's already been the justification for "religious cults" being overtaken and ultimately destroyed, not to mention the preppers and survivalists have always been considered to be somewhat extreme by mainstream.  Our society has been programmed for decades now, and sadly we simply didn't see that some of us would end up in the cross hairs.  It seemed only "right" to shut down that YFZ Ranch for polygamy, etc. but no one bothered to realize the "bust" was made; based upon a call from another state that had been proven to be a hoax.  Children were taken from their mothers for about a month and a half, men are in prison, and the state now owns the property.  All of this has taken place, based upon a call that was proven to be a hoax!  

Church buses provided assistance to the sheriff's office in the raid and removal of the children, because they truly believed they were ministering.  Now that people who believe the Bible are called haters, how long will it be before buses show up to take the children or simply stop bringing the children home from school?  A bitter harvest will be reaped from those seeds sown at the YFZ ranch, and the Branch Davidian children who were killed in 1993.  It's only a matter of time until those who do not bow down to the system, but stand on Biblical principles will be called cultists.  I do not share the views of YFZ, but King David was a polygamist, yet called a man after G-d's own heart.
I honestly do not know how Operation Jade Helm 15 will turn out.  Perhaps it is just an exercise, perhaps it is a desensitization, perhaps it is preparation for things to come, or perhaps even further military policing will be in place in this country by September.  What I do know, is Operation Jade Helm 15 is not the beginning of militarized policing in this country, as it has been going/coming into place for several years; already.  I expect to hear Romans 13:1-2 used 'out of context' and as a threat to true believers very soon.  As I've watched through the years, Ruby Ridge, the Branch Davidians, and at one time tried to accept the reported reasons, when I saw the church buses as YFZ ranch, I thought of the words of Martin Niemoller

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.                                                                                        
. . . O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.  If it be so, our G-d whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.  But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. . . Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of G-d.  Daniel 3:16a-18, 25b

From Doublespeak to Backward World

Upon reading about George Orwell's religious beliefs, I have to wonder if he may have operated in the prophetic like the prophet mentioned in Numbers 22.  So much of his book, 1984, truly does seem to have contained prophetic insight, and has sadly come to pass.  Of course, there has been "double talk" since Bible times, but for the masses to know it and accept it, seems to be more recent history.   We have openly acknowledged that we can't trust our politicians, yet we still go through the process to "elect" them and pin hopes upon them, knowing the very definition of doublespeak is a campaign promise.

I had a taste of doublespeak long before most of our society did, in that I grew up with a mother who had her own version, definition, and enforcement of the word:  FAIR.  Actually, she had several words confined to her specific definition, but "fair" stands out, to this day in my mind as well as descending generations all these years later.  It prepared me for the current condition of our society.  I learned early in life that doublespeak leads to redefinition, even as Wikipedia confirms in the next paragraph, reverses the meaning of words.

Doublespeak is language that deliberately disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. Doublespeak may take the form of euphemisms (e.g., "downsizing" for layoffs, "servicing the target" for bombing[1]), in which case it is primarily meant to make the truth sound more palatable. It may also refer to intentional ambiguity in language or to actual inversions of meaning (for example, naming a state of war "peace"). In such cases, doublespeak disguises the nature of the truth. Doublespeak is most closely associated with political language.

The term "doublespeak" probably has its roots in George Orwell's book Nineteen Eighty-Four. Although the term is not used in the book, it is a close relative of one of the book's central concepts, "doublethink". Another variant, "doubletalk," also referring to deliberately ambiguous speech, did exist at the time Orwell wrote his book, but the usage of "doublespeak" as well as of "doubletalk" in the sense emphasizing ambiguity clearly postdates the publication of Nineteen Eighty-Four. Parallels have also been drawn between Doublespeak and Orwell's classic essay Politics and the English Language, which discusses the distortion of language for political purposes. *

Now, it seems here in America, our doublespeak has attained a new level, bringing us to what I call "Backward World."  Tolerance is now intolerant of any views outside the "political correct agenda" and to "stand by one's convictions" has been redefined as bigotry.  And that's just for starters.  Perversion is now called love, and morality is called hate.  Disgust is now a phobia, while profiling is considered precautionary.  Reverse racism is apparently some form of reparation.  

Probably the three saddest things about all this is One: History is now digital, making revisionism pretty much guaranteed, so the next generations will be clueless.   Two:  we have knowingly fulfilled the passage in Isaiah 5, in calling good evil and evil good.  The list in that passage goes on and we have met every warning with arrogant pride.  Which brings me to the third sorrow of this new order of redefinition.  The United States Supreme Court determined they could usurp the authority of The Supreme Creator and redefine marriage.  My great grandchildren will never know another America.  Redefining the way we treat each other is bad enough, but "proudly" redefining the Word of our Creator will have consequences of Biblical proportion!  The redefinition of marriage will move us far beyond "backward world" descending into an abyss of utter darkness.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!         a Prophet of Holy Scripture
But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.  ~ words of Messiah

Equal Opportunity Offender

I love people, but I am not terribly sociable.  I am friendly and always say hello, but I feel awkward as soon as the small talk begins, always have.  I have strong convictions and I make every effort to live by them.  I do long for greater fruit of the Spirit regarding gentleness, as I tend to be rather forthright and blunt.  My attitude is changing though, as to how to direct the gentleness I would like to display in my life.  There are a few groups of folks that I will no longer be handling with kid gloves.  I've really been heavy hearted about the children of this nation and world and it's time all the adults with a voice, wise up and speak up.

I've been noticing for years now, the so called "tolerant" are most intolerant of anyone with convictions.  I no longer care if you tolerate me or not, I'm not giving up my convictions.  Last Friday, when the SCOTUS declared their self-exaltation to overrule Scripture, I noticed two things immediately.  It seemed the colorful "party favors" at the taxpayers expense were already in place.  Nobody is going to convince me that all those colored lights were ordered and installed that same day!  Second, I realized all the states that had voted down same sex marriage have been overruled by five people who were never elected.  Americans are not represented in the government, and the three branches do not keep each other in check, at all!

Once those ideas settled in, I then became very politically aware that I needed to add the word "rainbow" to my sentence describing the White House as now the Colored House.  More political correctness.  Which of course, brought me to how very far we've NOT come, racially.  Rather than everyone living and letting live, we've found even more ways to be racially divided and offended.  The race card continues to be well played and this brown woman is sick and tired of it!  Racism is wrong, reverse racism is wrong.  Children are not born racist.  Racism is taught by very small minded people and reverse racism is rallied, also by very small minded people.

As for all the new gender bender identity issues, I'm just not playing.  I still remember when Bruce Jenner won the Gold in 1976.  He'll never be anyone but Bruce to me. and I refuse to use female pronouns.  He's openly referred to still having "that little thing" and has not discussed "reassignment" surgery.  So, although he may refer to his male genitalia as "that little thing" when it comes to sexual identity, size doesn't matter.  If you have male genitalia, you are a "he."  If you came equipped with female anatomy, you are a "she."  In all this sexually open talk in our society, it's very simple.  I'll use plumbing and electrical terms.  Parts that point outward and fit into another part is male.  Fittings that are hollow and connect around another part are female.  See how easy that is!  Any questions?  

Now as for gay marriage.  Sexual sin is rampant in many forms and the Bible has quite a bit to say about heterosexual sin.  I've not participated in homosexual sin, but I've certainly been guilty of heterosexual fornication, and that's sin also.  Torah does allow for divorce, so all I can say is, I've repented, I've been forgiven.  I've worn mixed threads in my clothing, but I stopped doing that too, and yes I've had, probably, just about every non-kosher meat there is, but I've repented and kept kosher now for 20 years, and fornication went out the window even before I became Torah observant.

I was under the impression, truly I was, that becoming a Christian meant Torah no longer applied.  I've since seen the light, repented and been forgiven.  Homosexual sin is not the unpardonable sin, but it is sin and the only way to be forgiven is to repent.  Now I'm a married heterosexual in a very strained and estranged relationship.  We are not equally yoked spiritually, and mutually not attracted to each other, but Mr. B does not want a divorce, so since I'm still legally married, sex with anyone else would be adultery.  I've been living celibate for 8 years now, and I'm still alive to tell about it.  Regardless of the changes in the law to accommodate the LGBT, etc. it's just never going to be enough!  "Suck it up buttercup" and stop all your sniveling!  Several years before this last marriage I was celibate.  I've found myself attracted to other men, but acting upon that attraction would be sin.

And stop comparing this to civil rights for blacks.  It is not the same!  It's not even comparing apples to oranges!  Skin color is a physical characteristic, sexual behavior is a choice.  So, LGBT, nobody is telling you have to like the opposite sex, it's just sin if you keep having sex with the same sex.   I refer to myself as a disenfranchised heterosexual.  Add that one to the gender identity glossary.

So Elohim created man in His own image, in the image of Elohim created He him; male and female created He them.  Torah of Holy Scripture
