The Roman Lesson

By Regie Hamm on Facebook.
November 15, 2016

When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon and invaded the Republic of Rome (his home nation state), he was taking one of the biggest gambles in the history of the world. But he did something very simple that hedged his bet against a mob revolt. As soon as he secured the victory, he opened up the treasury and gave the masses money …lots of it …just gave it to them. In effect, he bought the allegiance of the people and nudged their orientation toward Imperial rule.

Things didn’t end well for Julius. Stabbed to death on the Senate floor, by people who were committed to a republic …is pretty much how his obituary read. But the damage had already been done. The people of Rome got a taste of having a relationship with ONE guy, who could, with the wave of a hand, fill their pockets or change their fortunes. It didn’t require all that pesky legislating or debating. It didn’t move at the speed of molasses. They realized that instead of the slow burn of representative self-governance, they could get the quick blaze of an Emperor’s whim. As long as the people themselves were safe and sound, kind of cared for, and out of the line of fire, the Emperor could do pretty much whatever he wanted. And Rome was never the same.

Emperors were the eventual downfall of the ancient Roman experiment. And they passed into history as a cautionary tale. But humans still gravitate toward big power. Our founders knew this. When Benjamin Franklin was asked, after the Continental Congress, what kind of government they had given the people, his reply was, “A republic …if you can keep it.” The sub-text of that response was born of knowing the lessons of history all too well.

Most societies can’t keep republics. As power gets consolidated, the people UNDER the power start assuming that power is their everything. And once you can make the people believe THAT …you’re well on your way to becoming Caesar.

This is why we have things like the electoral college, the 10th Amendment, two chambers of congress, three branches of government, courts of appeal and a free press. All of these things are designed to keep power at bay and our lives in OUR hands …not the hands of one person.

But for some reason we still insist on heaping power on a king figure.

The absolute meltdown that is occurring in our nation, as a result of the election of one man to one office, has sparked a whole new debate on who we are as a society. Some say the protestors are simply whiney Millennials who’ve never learned how to lose. There may be some truth to that. Who knows?

Some say this is a result of political correctness finally swallowing itself whole. Also …maybe.

For me, this is a lesson in how much power we’ve given our government. Many people actually fear that their lives are about to be unraveled …based on who just became president. If a life can come unraveled based on that, then the person being elected already has too much power.

Some of the same people who think the current president (elect) is about to be their undoing, thought the last president was going to be their savior. Anyone with term limits and legal constraints can’t be a savior. Nor should they be.

Someone recently wrote that our healthcare, science funding, marriage rights, reproductive rights, education system and very survival as a nation was hanging in the balance of this election. Does anyone besides me, find that idea obscene? THAT much of our lives being controlled by government? Is this our new Caesar?

Why does most of our science funding come through the NIH? Who decided the government should control all of that? Why does our healthcare have to be managed by people who live thousands of miles away from us? Why do our social contracts depend on the right balance of judges sitting on ONE court?

The fact that one election has this much power over us …or even the fact that we just PERCEIVE it to have that much power over us …is the actual problem. And now, because of it, we find ourselves coming apart at the seams …that are all stitched together with layer upon layer of government. This has become our God …and now we are frightened of angering it.

Be careful about how much government you want in your life. Because one day it might end up in the hands of someone who terrifies you.

By then, you’d better hope you’re in good standing with the Emperor.

130 WORDS: Why Individual Liberty Is Absolutely Essential in the Age of COVID

By Doug Newman – email me
Here I am on Facebook and Parler.
If you would like to share this elsewhere, please include a link to this page. Thanks!

Why is individual liberty absolutely essential in the age of covid?

When people are free, they can keep the fruits of their labor. This gives them a reason to work and dream and invent and create. They have a reason to grow potatoes and invent lightbulbs and smartphones and life-saving and life-prolonging medical procedures and devices.

The more that people work and dream and invent and create, the wealthier they become.

People in wealthy countries live longer than people in poor countries. People live longer in Switzerland than in Chad. Japan leads the world in life expectancy, while the Central African Republic is last.

Do you really want to save lives? End the lockdowns, mask mandates and every other aspect of the flu d’etat. And let people be free again.

“The Covid Cult” by Tom Woods

This is perhaps the 20 most power-packed minutes of anti-flu d’etat material I have heard thus far.

The C-word is not an exaggeration. As Woods puts it, “Leaders are never wrong; evidence doesn’t matter; people outside the cult are subhuman and selfish to be shamed and ridiculed; they have slogans like: “listen to the science”. Maybe that slogan is meant to be funny because these are the most unscientific people I have met in my life. They live in a hermetically sealed bubble impervious to facts.”

Here is the video. It was recently removed by YouTube.

Trump: No Friend of Liberty

Thanks to Joe Enroughty on Facebook for compiling these screen grabs from outgoing Congressman Justin Amash. (I-MI) While I think Trump has done a few good things, he is no friend of personal liberty at all.

Houses of Fear or of Faith? Churches in the Age of COVID.

Churches should have heeded II Timothy 1:7 and been on front lines fighting the flu d’etat from early March onward. Instead, to their eternal shame, many have ignored Romans 12:2 and followed right along with the world system.

Read this description of the new normal at a Lutheran Church near Chicago.

Church is supposed to be a refuge. The main worship centers are called sanctuaries for a reason!!!

Lord, could You just send The Big Rock now and get it over with?

So, When Does This Covid Scare End?

Author: Anonymous.
Posted on Facebook by Laurie Armstrong.

Well, a voice of reason…


I have done my best to respect the diverse opinions regarding COVID-19 over these past few months, however, the ER nurse that posted this brilliantly sums up my train of thought :

Please just take politics out of it and read this with an open mind using common sense.”

Anyone out there who can tell me what our end game is with the covid 19?

What is the magic formula that is going to allow us to sound the all-clear?

Is it zero cases?

The only way that will happen is if we just stop testing and stop reporting.

Is it a vaccine?

It took 25 years for a chickenpox vaccine to be developed.

The smallpox inoculation was discovered in 1796 the last known natural case was in 1977.

We have a flu vaccine that is only 40 to 60% effective and less than half of the US population choose to get one, and roughly 20,000 Americans will die of the flu or flu complications.

Oh, you’ll mandate it, like other vaccines are mandated in order to attend school, travel to some foreign countries, etc.

We already have a growing number of anti-vaxxers refusing proven, tested, well-known vaccines that have been administered for decades but aren’t necessarily safe!

Do you really think people will flock to get a fast-tracked, quickly tested vaccine, whose long term side effects and overall efficacy are anyone’s best guess?

How long are we going to cancel and postpone and reconsider?

You aren’t doing in-person school until the second quarter?

What if October’s numbers are the same as August’s?

You moved football to spring?

What if next March is worse than this one was?

When do we decide the quality of life outweighs the risks?

I understand Covid can be deadly or very dangerous for SOME people, but so are strawberries and so is shellfish.

We take risks multiple times a day without a second thought.

We know driving a car can be dangerous, we don’t leave it in the garage. Many speed and don’t wear seat belts.

We know the dangers of smoking, drinking, and eating fried foods, we do it anyway.

Is hugging Grandma really more dangerous than rush hour on the freeway?

Is going out with friends after work more risky than 4-day old gas station sushi?

Or operating a chainsaw?

When and how did we so quickly lose our free will and give up our liberty?

Is there a waiver somewhere I can sign that says, “I understand the risks, but I choose a life with Hugs and Smiles, and the State Fair and go to Church and go hug my Mom in her retirement home?

I understand that there is a minuscule possibility I could die, but I will most likely end up feeling like crap for a few days.

I understand I could possibly pass it to someone else if I’m not careful, but I can pass any virus onto someone else.

I’m struggling to see where or how this ends.

We either get busy living or we get busy dying.

When God decides it’s your time, you don’t get any mulligans, so I guess I would rather spend my time enjoying it and living in the moment and not worrying about what-ifs and maybes, and I bet I’m not the only one.

Study: Bacterial Pneumonia Caused Most Deaths in 1918 Influenza Pandemic

From the National Institutes of Health in 2008:

“The majority of deaths during the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 were not caused by the influenza virus acting alone, report researchers from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. Instead, most victims succumbed to bacterial pneumonia following influenza virus infection. The pneumonia was caused when bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat invaded the lungs along a pathway created when the virus destroyed the cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs.”

At the time, the NIAID was headed up by some guy named Fauci.

Good for Justin Turner!

By Doug Newman – email me here.
Here I am on Facebook.

It was almost as awesome as watching my beloved Los Angeles Dodgers win their first World Series in 32 years.

Justin Turner, their all-star third baseman, was removed from Game 6 of the World Series after a positive COVID test. Then, to the shock and dismay of Lockdown Nation, Turner, who was asymptomatic, ignored instructions to self-isolate and joined his teammates in the post-game victory celebration.

Needless to say, the drama queens at Major League Baseball have … you guessed it … launched an investigation.

Good for Justin Turner! We need to stop treating COVID like it’s the bubonic plague. Why don’t people come unhinged like this every flu season? Contagious diseases have been with us forever and will never go away. Let’s just get on with normal life.

Turner, my new hero, with the red beard, celebrating the Dodgers’ World Series victory.
