Our Political Destiny Awaits: And It Makes Me Want to Vomit but God Is Greater, ya filthy animal! This is the Voice of Doom Calling. Your Days are Numbered, to the Seventh Son of the Seventh Son.
Corporatism, Biden, the European Union, Home Alone, and a Crap Load of Other Movie References from the Thanksgiving Holiday Getaway before Impending Doom
Lord help me, three words I consistently prayed throughout the year. In Romans 8:26-27, Saint Paul assures the saints that when they do not know what to pray, on what to speak before God, that the Holy Spirit can and does speak on our behalf:
26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
These days my prayers turn to groaning in the darkness of the night, “Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my groaning (Psalm 5:3).” Yet, though I cry and yell there is a moment where I reach a place of peace, not because my trials are over (I wish!), rather I take comfort that God hears me and understands. Why does God need the Holy Spirit to speak before Him? Trick question! The Holy Spirit is God. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit; three in one, HOLY HOLY HOLY:
Heaven needs no sound speakers. The King hears and knows His Saints in this life and in the next. Amen! So what has me and others in knots? Exactly what Rod Dreher wrote and continues to write about these days,
Meanwhile, social science brings us a new reason to hate white conservative Christians. It’s a new academic paper that finds that “racist” opinions related to Covid are held disproportionately by “white Christian nationalists,” proving that they are really bad people. The study’s authors put the following “racially coded” statements to subjects, to test their level of agreement:
It is racist to refer to COVID-19 as “the Chinese virus”.
The fact that poor, minority communities are more likely to be infected with COVID-19 is a symptom of our unjust society.
Black Americans are being infected with COVID-19 at higher rates largely because they are not behaving responsibly.
Some racial minority groups may have a biological susceptibility to COVID-19.
Our lax immigration laws are partly to blame for the COVID-19 crisis.
All immigration should be halted at least temporarily to protect American jobs during this time.
One way to prevent further pandemics in the United States would be to build the wall along our Southern border.
The fact that COVID-19 is spreading rapidly among prison inmates should be the least of our concerns.
If prison inmates are being infected with COVID-19 at higher rates, that could be a form of divine justice.
Dreher continues as he goes from Woke Academia to the Corporatism coming our way as Australia joins in the club of unprecedented contact tracing all in the name of “SAFETY” cause God knows we need more of that!
If we can have software that identifies transphobic people, why not software that identifies racist people? Maybe making the world safer and healthier requires putting this kind of digital warning on social media accounts of problematic people — Deplorables and so forth. Linking Covid to its country of origin in one’s speech patterns is racist, according to social science. Better protect the community from racists who talk like that by flagging their social media accounts, and threatening their jobs and livelihoods. You see where this is going.

Do you think we are over worrying? Perhaps even conspiracy theorist or ignorantly ignoring the SCIENCE? Yes, the god of gods, kings of kangs, Science. You would be wrong. And you would also be the ignorant one. Let me set some matters straight while we still can before censorship comes.
“Hate speech and hate crime in the EU and the evaluation of online content regulation approaches,” that is the name of a very recent report (July 2020) from the EU’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs Directorate-General for Internal Policies (a mouthful of bureaucratic wahooo!) But you better read the hundred-sixty-nine page document. Here is a highlight for your enjoyment:
In theory, long-standing, prosperous and stable democracies should be able to battle hate with social instruments only and without criminal restriction: unambiguous representation of the values of tolerance and plurality in all public institutions, banning haters from resources which would lead to financial, political or media power and label them as an extreme and despicable minority themselves – whose rights to speak are however respected equally. This ideal situation is not what we are observing in Europe. On the contrary, haters are gaining media attention, gaining social influence, political power, and through their infiltration to politics, public institutions are unable to consequently represent tolerance and plurality any longer in several MSs.
And yet, lowering the threshold of criminal hate speech is not an option, and it would not provide a remedy. The problem of hate speech and hate crime should be regarded as a complex social problem, and a symptomatic response given by societies to the challenges which have not been adequately managed. The policy response should be similarly complex: addressing the underlying issues and the symptoms at the same time. While it may appear that populistic politicians respond to the needs of their electorate, in reality they serve only a tiny but loud minority. But it should be noted that the underlying problems are more general problems of the wider majority, and that a political alternative should be provided which offers solution to the problem and communicates this, as well.
Nevertheless, legal – albeit not necessarily only criminal – prohibition is and remains one among the important symbolic messages and actions with which a state can express its values and set its standards.
Albeit my ass. These bastards (pardon my French) are set, absolutely, on busting, arresting, and shutting down the nearest church, home, or theater that stutters “hate speech” an oxymoron if there ever was one in all of human history!

We are not done though. In June 2020, that is before July, the EU Commission started their ominous 1984 sounding, THE CODE:
What is the aim of the Code?
The European Commission launched the Code of Conduct (hereafter, the Code) in May 2016 together with four major IT companies (Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube) in an effort to respond to the proliferation of racist and xenophobic hate speech online.
The aim of the Code is to make sure that requests to remove content are dealt quickly with. When companies receive a request to remove from their online platform content deemed to be illegal, they assess this request against their rules and community guidelines and, where necessary, national laws transposing EU law on combatting racism and xenophobia. The companies commit to reviewing the majority of these requests in less than 24 hours and to removing the content if necessary, while respecting the fundamental principle of freedom of speech. To this date, eight companies have adhered to the Code, notably Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Microsoft, Instagram, Dailymotion, Snapchat and Jeuxvideo.com.
How does the Commission evaluate the implementation of the Code?
The Code is evaluated through a monitoring exercise by a network of civil society organisations located in different EU countries. Using a commonly agreed methodology, these organisations test how the IT companies apply the Code in practice. They do this by regularly sending the IT companies requests to remove content and recording how long it takes the IT companies to assess the request, what the outcomes are, and the feedback they receive from the companies.
What are the main takeaways of the fifth monitoring exercise?
Swift and stable response to illegal hate speech notified by users to platforms
The results of the fifth monitoring exercise, which also includes Jeuxvideo.com and Dailymotion, show that about 90% of the notifications are assessed within 24 hours. The IT companies fully meet the target of reviewing the majority of notifications within 24 hours. Facebook has reached 95.7% of notifications assessed within a day.
On average, IT companies remove 71% of illegal hate speech incidents notified to them by the NGOs and public bodies participating in the evaluation. Between 70% and 80% is estimated to be satisfactory removal rates, as some of the content flagged by users could relate to content that is not illegal. In order to protect freedom of speech only illegal content should be removed.
Consistent and scrupulous assessment of illegal hate speech content
The monitoring exercise shows that the removal of content for serious cases of deemed illegal hate speech is very significant. Content that calls for murder or violent acts against certain groups is largely removed in most of the identified cases. Whereas, content using degrading, defamatory words or pictures to name certain social groups or individuals belonging to such groups are still removed in smaller proportions. This suggests that the review made by the companies is done with due consideration of protected speech.
Read all about their censorship here: The Code of conduct on countering illegal hate speech online
If you agree with this form of censorship it is because you are part of the problem. Simple as that. No more mincing words for radicals determined to destroy humanity one gender pronoun at a time. Trans-women are really men, penis or not, just so you know the truth. You can take your hate speech to the junkyard.
Biden is joining the Great Reset with similar hate speech initiatives including his appointment of information warrior, Richard Stengel:
All speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails. I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.
We can pat ourselves on the back about the past 223 years, but we cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to the U.S.’s moving into the future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, an evolving sense of civil and political rights. The Constitution does not protect our spirit of liberty; our spirit of liberty protects the Constitution. The Constitution serves the nation; the nation does not serve the Constitution.
Biden and Harris are very public about their “protection” of the Trans-Community. To be clear, yes, lets prevent actual crimes from being committed against transgender individuals. Hate speech is not one of them. Neither Harris or Biden are new to the LGBTQ block after they ironically both plugged Sarah McBride’s book back in 2018, Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality. Biden wrote the forward while Harris had her three-second review:
The fact that if I call McBride a man, I could end up in jail in Europe, is an abomination to the core of free speech. Facts are not hateful. They are truthful, albeit (there goes that word again) perhaps painful at times, but not hateful. However, protecting the most “vile” of speech is as essential. Biden and Harris though will move forward with the crucifixion’s as Biden seeks to remove Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act amongst other agendas, odd how the internet is the central theme of hate, as if a global reset were just around the corner. From the Electronic Frontier Foundation:
Tucked inside the Communications Decency Act (CDA) of 1996 is one of the most valuable tools for protecting freedom of expression and innovation on the Internet: Section 230.
This comes somewhat as a surprise, since the original purpose of the legislation was to restrict free speech on the Internet. The Internet community as a whole objected strongly to the Communications Decency Act, and with EFF's help, the anti-free speech provisions were struck down by the Supreme Court. But thankfully, CDA 230 remains and in the years since has far outshone the rest of the law.
Section 230 says that "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider" (47 U.S.C. § 230). In other words, online intermediaries that host or republish speech are protected against a range of laws that might otherwise be used to hold them legally responsible for what others say and do. The protected intermediaries include not only regular Internet Service Providers (ISPs), but also a range of "interactive computer service providers," including basically any online service that publishes third-party content. Though there are important exceptions for certain criminal and intellectual property-based claims, CDA 230 creates a broad protection that has allowed innovation and free speech online to flourish.
This legal and policy framework has allowed for YouTube and Vimeo users to upload their own videos, Amazon and Yelp to offer countless user reviews, craigslist to host classified ads, and Facebook and Twitter to offer social networking to hundreds of millions of Internet users. Given the sheer size of user-generated websites (for example, Facebook alone has more than 1 billion users, and YouTube users upload 100 hours of video every minute), it would be infeasible for online intermediaries to prevent objectionable content from cropping up on their site. Rather than face potential liability for their users' actions, most would likely not host any user content at all or would need to protect themselves by being actively engaged in censoring what we say, what we see, and what we do online. In short, CDA 230 is perhaps the most influential law to protect the kind of innovation that has allowed the Internet to thrive since 1996.
CDA 230 also offers its legal shield to bloggers who act as intermediaries by hosting comments on their blogs. Under the law, bloggers are not liable for comments left by readers, the work of guest bloggers, tips sent via email, or information received through RSS feeds. This legal protection can still hold even if a blogger is aware of the objectionable content or makes editorial judgments.
The legal protections provided by CDA 230 are unique to U.S. law; European nations, Canada, Japan, and the vast majority of other countries do not have similar statutes on the books. While these countries have high levels of Internet access, most prominent online services are based in the United States. This is in part because CDA 230 makes the U.S. a safe haven for websites that want to provide a platform for controversial or political speech and a legal environment favorable to free expression.
Japan, Canada, China, Russia… they all are becoming a blur as totalitarianisms comes to ashore. Humanity has gone from from sea to shining sea to a blunt object smashing in the skull against anyone who opposes the new laws, the new rules, the new ways. Boy do I miss the 90s.
Last night we watched Home Alone. Fun to watch after nearly two decades watching the movie seasonally as a kid with my parents, all the references and innuendos aside, the movie is fairly clean with plenty of laughter.
Since 2000 that has been about how I feel too Kevin McCallister. Why can’t we just go back? I mean sure it was still full of sin and corruption and brokenness, but there is surely something to be said about having the chance to have summer sling-shot wars in the entire block that ended with a tree stump being tossed on the biggest & baddest kid on the block and his gang while we all scrambled home because we knew that while we won the war, our butts were going to be red soon enough. November 16, 1990 was the premiere of Home Alone, the after mentioned sling shot war occurred around 1992, I imagine though not entirely sure of the date, but it happened, trust me. You can ask my momma! What was beautiful about our small town street was that every race, religion, and creed actually was represented on that entire block. Probably not the norm in South Texas either, yet no one was truly a foe, except that big bully I mentioned. Back then we really could handle matters in a gallant way without all of life’s play safer rubber, helicopter parenting, breastfeeding til you are thirteen, and non-binary propaganda to support us up and guard us from reality. Today my children are not even allowed to play outside without suspicion of abuse if I am not clearly visible for the all-seeing EYE-SPY, SEE SAYING government informants.
Day before that we enjoyed several Cary Grant movies. Including another favorite, To Catch a Thief. with the very real princess, Grace Kelly.
What I would give to go back to 1955 France. At least, the part where I can live on a vineyard and retire from the world. Grace Kelly and Cary Grant represented class; a real grace in the movies and in real life.
I wanted to include the Statue of Grant incase it is torn down in the coming year due to Woke woke madness 2021. You can visit it (in 2025?) at Harbourside 5DB, Millennium Promenade, Bristol, United Kingdom.
Where was I? Ah yes, Corporatism, Wokism, and the end of Freedom. Yeah, tomorrow will be different McBride, it will be, A Brave New World:
A squat grey building of only thirty-four storeys. Over the main entrance the words, CENTRAL LONDON HATCHERY AND CONDITIONING CENTRE, and, in a shield, the World State's motto, COMMUNITY, IDENTITY, STABILITY.
Let’s extend that dangerously accurate motto: “Equity, Inclusiveness, Diversity” to our very own New World Order.
Capitalism is becoming the apparatus of the state whether it wants to or not. It is no longer the glorious from which it originated. Now it is corporate neoliberalism which has created a bond of necessity through the rise of modern globalism and global markets and the vital resources no legitimate modern power can go without. Money and politics, war and manufacturing, knowledge and information, data and surveillance the sequences are nearly infinite in nature due to the ecological shift of the State and its institutions that now either control the modern state or are actors in place of state authority. No one structure exists on its own without a dire interdependence on another structure of power and authority. Think of building blocks connected in a way that if one were to be taken away from the whole, the whole would suffer reverberations in the entire structure i.e. the global economy. From cell phones to the voting booth technology has linked everyone and everything together in an impressively and yet dangerous way. Private and public, sacred and profane, fake and real all blend into the image screen of noise.
The modern workplace have become the Cathedral of Judgement. And since the state and the workplace share no boundaries, that judgement takes a universal tone. Whether you lose your job or you are put on trial, judgement shall come to those deemed racist, sexist, homophobic, or every other ism, ist, or phobia by secular standards. Sir Roger Scruton concerning modern culture wrote, “Modern people long for membership; but membership exists only among people who do not long for it, who have no real conception of it… Such people have immediate access, through common culture, to the ethical vision of man” (Scruton, Modern Culture, p. 11). What is that Ethical Vision? It is the source that only religion can subsist, according to Scruton, for “the vision of human beings as objects of judgement. Whether the judge be man or god; whether accounts are settled in this world or the next; whether natural or supernatural powers redeem us, judgement is the core of religion” (ibid). Woke Capitalism, a ruse for Socialism at large, is the creedal statement of late modernity. Justice is the eternal quest. Their disciple makers are Colleges and Universities.
Capitalism and Socialism share a irreversible bond by means of technology and science; people and industry. Modernity produced both. Now humanity will witness Modernity’s final act by which it produces a perpetual state of confusion. It successfully managed to forge ancient bonds; a new kind of Imperialism—Corporatism. Multinational Corporations are the pinnacles of the neoliberal order and now they will become the final pinnacle of Socialism. Presently, even the most ardent totalitarian states can look grand under global capitalism. China represents one form of this global monster.
Corporations are our new image bearers de facto a culture addicted to decadence. The global economy is the altar where billions daily seek to sacrifice and appease; in response it yells, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!” (Rev. 6:6). Richness is Faith, Poverty Is Sin. Newspeak!
Whatever imagined virtues that come from the “Free Market” are no more but shadows that danced on the cave wall. Now the true source of light, their real purpose and place are being revealed as Tyranny raises her mighty head as a Whore of Babylon!
Striking it is not? A quasi-socialism; a merger of Corporate and State that serves a global economy to capitalize its goals. Chick-fil-la is a “Christian” company today (because Christ called us to start multinational corporations am I right?) but it too will be a SJW before you know it. That is the problem of a free-market that lacks virtue in its social structure, it quickly morphs into a vice that clamps down on everything and everyone.
Socialism promises material dreams, Capitalism promises nothing except possibilities without guarantees. In a world that lacks belief in the supernatural, only naturalism remains therefore Socialism is enticing to a youth who want “free” healthcare, education, housing, water, and food. Or as I mentioned previously, free pads and tampons. They want all the world has to offer in the name of retribution, yet make no mistake it is revenge. Now crony capitalism, this neoliberal corporatism, has corrupted the original state of Capitalism leaving the door for tyranny wide open. Illiberalism is here to stay possibly a century or til the end of time. God knows. And should Christ return, it will be to complete that which He had already conquered:
11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in[a] blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule hem with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
Robert Nisbet wrote that the family husband-wife relationship has been reduced to lust and romance with the hope of love being enough. Then on page 59 he writes, “The problems arising from the diminished institutional and psychological importance of the family in our society also extend into wider areas of social and economic behavior.” That is our culture and our world today. “Love is Love,” we have been reduced to an it, a Zer, Xe, or Eir… overly concentrated to the point of intoxication. “No families” the globalist warn, or only have two children because China really screwed up with that one-child policy. Fools.
All in all, this too will pass, but not before chaos and perhaps not until the last bell has rung.
