Here's Why No One Wants to Talk About Sweden

When, the summer before last, the results of the first Covid wave began to be tallied in the media, there were different ways of measuring the devastation. One way of looking at the pandemic was to focus on how many people died — more than half a million around the world by the end of June. Another was to try assessing the complicated impacts of the various measures taken to combat the virus. When a lot of the functions in society were frozen, people struggled — especially the most vulnerable. For those who preferred the first perspective, there was plenty of data to lean on. Meticulous records of the death toll were being kept in most countries, especially the wealthy ones, and presented in stylish graphs on various sites: the Johns Hopkins University website, Worldometer, Our World in Data. It was a lot harder to measure the consequences of the lockdowns. They appeared here and there as scattered anecdotes and figures. Perhaps the most striking data point came from the US: by the end of the academic year, a total of 55.1 million students had been affected by school closures.

The "Separation of Church and State" Myth

Dutch Sheets is an internationally recognized author, gifted teacher, and conference speaker. He has pastored, taught in several colleges and seminaries, and served on the board of directors of numerous organizations. He travels extensively, challenging believers for passionate prayer and societal reformation. Seeing America experience a sweeping revival and return to its Godly heritage is Dutch’s greatest passion. He is a messenger of hope for America, encouraging believers to contend for awakening. I have decided that one more post regarding government is necessary. We did several posts a week ago on the subject; however, I believe "the separation of church and state" needs to be addressed. In last week's teachings, we stressed that God honors the concept of government. More than simply believing in it, however, He tells us in Isaiah 33:22 that He IS government: Lawgiver, Judge, and King. Our government, with its three branches - Legislative, Judicial, and Executive - was formed after this pattern. He, as the Author of government, desires to funnel His wisdom, will, and ways into the earth's realm through a righteous government. I have often said, "Although God initiated, endorsed, and therefore blesses the concept of government, He despises the 'political spirit.'" The political spirit is to government what a religious spirit is to relationship with God. Both are perversions of the truth. They are evil. These spirits partnered to crucify Jesus. In America, the political spirit has so defiled our government that deception, a lust for control and power, antichrist ideals/agendas, and greed control much of Washington, D.C. This rebellion and rejection of God eventually opens the door to depravity, such as killing babies up to a month old, which some are now trying to make legal.

Entrepreneur Motivational Success Hacks Mindset

What is the difference between someone who lives their dream and others who never realize their dream? What separates the two? Those who refuse to be talked out of realizing their dream are unstoppable. No one can tell them any different. They refuse to be dissuaded. They rarely, if ever, stop believing. They just seem to have that inner knowing, of a destiny waiting to be fulfilled. We all know someone like this. Pay attention and learn from them. People with this mindset are virtually unrestrainable in attaining their aspirations, to the point of being consumed. No obstacle is too great for them to surmount. No one can ever talk them out of pursuing their dream, nor would few even dare try. If you spend much time around this rare type of person, it does not take long to discern these motivating factors. Why is this such a rarity among those numbered among humanity, when it should be the norm? For the rest of us ordinary mortals, this just seems a little extreme. In fact, we live in a day where “the extreme” is glorified. We crave success and living our dreams, but we settle for a mundane existence, every time. This differentiates the dreamers who turn their dreams into reality and those who do not. Much of humanity chooses the effortless way out because it is more predictable and less work.

The Enduring Wisdom Of George Washington

We are being assaulted in all directions by media sources from various revisionist historians, most notably, critical race theory (CRT). It's difficult to sift through the conflicting information and discern the actual foundational principles, responsible for the formation of our nation. The best way to resolve this conundrum is by referring to the original founding documents, or documents written by the founders themselves. This book is a resource that will enable you to research the history and writings of George Washington, along with a selection of primary founding documents. This volume is not exhaustive in scope, but will aid in getting you started in the right direction.

The Last Will and Testaments of the Founders Reveal Their Christian Faith

Last Will and Testament

Compiled by Stephen McDowell, Providence Foundation

Introduction

The evidence of the Christian Foundation of America is great. The Providence Foundation has presented much of this in our books and publications, including America’s Providential History, America a Christian Nation, Building Godly Nations, and others. Many other people have written on the topic as well. But the material is so vast that it would take myriads of books to even present a good introduction. In this Providential Perspective we add more to the evidence with words of some of the people who gave birth to this nation — words that these men wanted their posterity to remember them by.

Architect of the Federal System

AMONG all the monuments in the great Cathedral of St. Paul's, in London, the proudest is a simple tablet to the memory of Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of that splendid pile. "Reader," it says, "if thou seekest his monument, look around thee." Turning from structures of brick and stone to an edifice of a nobler kind, we of America have but to look around us to see in the mighty fabric of our national government the monument of ALEXANDER HAMILTON. In the summer of 1772 that beautiful group of the West Indies known as the Leeward Islands were desolated by a hurricane. While its effects were still visible, and men were looking fearfully into the skies, an account of the calamity appeared in the St. Christopher's Gazette, written with such singular ability that there was great curiosity to discover its author. It was traced to a youth employed in a St. Croix counting-house, a boy of only fifteen, named Alexander Hamilton. He was born in the tiny island of Nevis. His father was a Scotch gentleman, and his mother was of the good Huguenot stock of France. It was a happy day for our young author; a lad who could write in this way, it was thought, should not spend his life in casting up accounts. It was at once determined to send him to New York to complete his education; and in the month of October, in that year, he landed in Boston.

An Illegitimate Election Plunges the Republic into a Crisis

This is how elections are conducted in Third World countries - and now in America.

Election Voter Fraud

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

However the presidential election turns out, one thing is clear, half the country will believe that the man officially sitting in the White House is an illegitimate pretender.

And that’s the way it’s been throughout this century.

The crisis of presidential legitimacy really kicked into gear in 2000. Before that people might hate the president, but the opposing political party wouldn’t insist on his illegitimacy. Afterward every president has been treated as an illegitimate criminal to be opposed and driven out.

History Cool Kids

"For a small amount of perspective at this moment, imagine you were born in 1900. When you are 14, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. Fifty million people die from it in those two years. Yes, 50 million. When you're 29, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, global GDP drops 27%. That runs until you are 33. The country nearly collapses along with the world economy. When you turn 39, World War II starts. You aren’t even over the hill yet. When you're 41, the United States is fully pulled into WWII. Between your 39th and 45th birthday, 75 million people perish in the war and the Holocaust kills six million. At 52, the Korean War starts and five million perish.

The Rare Commodity of Truth

Facebook Post by John R. Enlow, from Restore 7, On Earth as it is in Heaven

The world war we are presently in is an unconventional war. The enemy's "atomic arsenal" in this war is disinformation. The front line strategy involves manipulating a narrative and sparing no expense to do so. The war plays out as an information war because that is where the enemy has invested the bulk of its' resources. By the very nature of the unconventional war strategy TRUTH has become the rarest commodity. Rarer seemingly than diamonds. The enemy has spent years and even decades securing "mainstream media" for this world war. It valued stockpiling news sources and media outlets as much as nations in times past would normally value and stockpile nuclear weaponry. George Soros is a key figure if not THE key figure on the dark side. He has a stated goal of destroying America. It is his money financing ANTIFA. Every one of his companies and organizations are part of a disinformation campaign. Many are made to APPEAR like something that they are actually the opposite of.

Comparing Current Rioting to the Boston Tea Party?

Sharing a post by David Meek:

My feed has been so full of people comparing the current rioting to the Boston Tea Party as a justification I thought I should set the record straight as a history teacher.

Modern day rioting and looting for personal gain is NOTHING like the Boston Tea Party.

During the tea party, great care was taken by the Sons of Liberty to target the tea of the East India Company, whom they viewed as an unethical monopoly that threatened local businesses, and avoid any damage to other private property. The only person who tried to steal some of the tea for personal use was beaten and thrown overboard. After the tea was disposed of, the group swept the decks of the ship and gave it a proper cleaning so that the ship's captain could not claim that anything except the cargo had been touched. Then they financially replaced the only piece of private property that had been damaged - the captain's padlock that locked the hold where the tea was stored.
