SATAN’S MOUTHPIECE: The Corporate Media

Trump backs off Afghan withdrawal, clears way for thousands more American troops

President Donald Trump cleared the way for the deployment of thousands more US troops to Afghanistan Monday, backtracking from his promise to rapidly end America’s longest war…”

Troops from the country formerly known as the United States of America will be in or near Afghanistan at the climax of human history.

16 years, 3 presidential administrations and the beat goes on…

Trump ups the ante in Afghanistan, admits his instinct to pull out was wrong

“Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.”
–The Who, Won’t get fooled again

Trump announces change of heart on Afghanistan

In a sober yet vague address, Trump laid out his rationale for continuing the foreign entanglement, despite having pledged during the campaign to end America’s engagement in wars without clear exits.

“Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.”
–The Who, Won’t get fooled again

Trump’s Afghanistan Plan: No Timeline for Exit

Despite prime-time billing for the president’s announcement, Americans heard a familiar argument about extending the war in Afghanistan.

“Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.”
–The Who, Won’t get fooled again

Who still thinks Trump will build the wall?

“Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.”
–The Who, Won’t get fooled again

Trump administration eliminates ANOTHER advisory group – and this time it’s the global warming council –  At this rate, the number of useless councils in Washington DC may may only take 100 or so years to disappear.

Two kinds of Trump supporters – Furthering the deception that Trump has many supporters (beyond those who are paid).

Donald Trump Prophecy?

“The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work, and then they get elected and prove it.”
-—P.J. O’Rourke

QUOTES: A Few Thoughts on Voting

Things of This World: Faith and Trust in Politics

“But actually, he thought as he readjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connection with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connection that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version. A great deal of time you were expected to make them up out of your head.”
–On changing government statistics – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
John 20:31

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16power-of-salvation-the-gospel-of-Jesus-Christ


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19

Watch and Be Not Deceived: Two End Times Commandments of God

More than 30 injured in suburban Philadelphia train crash

U.S. Navy admiral: USS John S. McCain, oil tanker collision may have been intentional – OF course, this headline can be taken either of two ways.

The government/media is hoping readers will take it their way.

Paul Ryan faces heat back home in Wisconsin – Paul Ryan is one of those politicians who is almost universally loathed by the “folks back home” they supposedly represent.

Paul Ryan represents NO ONE other than those who pull his strings. Most of his “constituents” know that Ryan does not represent them. When such a situation reaches a point where the illusion of “representative government” is impossible to maintain, the puppet in question is replaced by another puppet.

And the process begins anew.

Sen. Lindsay Graham ‘proud’ of President Trump’s Afghanistan speech

“For the LORD of hosts will have a day of reckoning Against everyone who is proud and lofty And against everyone who is lifted up, That he may be abased.”
–Isaiah 2:12

CASH - stacks of cash

The Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece) has been writing about a “War on Cash” for some time now.

A cashless society has also been the focus of many end times false prophets, who swear it’s the “mark of the beast” from Revelation 13.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
–Revelation 13:16-18

The contention of the churches, the TV preachers and the false teachers, false prophets and false (“anointed“) Christs is that a cashless society is a necessary precursor to the “mark of the beast.” They tie all of this together with warnings of “microchipping” (previously it was bar codes).

Any experienced media watcher knows

  1. IF the cashless society and microchipping had ANYTHING to do with the mark of the beast, the Corporate Media wouldn’t breathe a word about either one;
  2. The Corporate Media detests Christians, therefore it will not warn them of any dangers; and,
  3. The Corporate Media will do all it can to mislead anyone who is interested in learning about the “mark of the beast.”

The reader may expect to hear even more from the Corporate Media about the War on Cash, a cashless world, microchipping (and whatever the next technological advance may be) and the “mark of the beast.

The reader may also expect to hear much of the same information from those who control the churches, as well as the false teachers, false prophets, false apostles and false Christs who hang out there.

Almost none of what they say will be true.


Solar eclipse 2017: Curtain of darkness sweeps across America as country witnesses once-in-a-lifetime event – In most areas of the USA, it was hard to know Eclipse Day was different from any other day.

The solar eclipse is only the latest example of the difference between reality and the false reality presented by the government/media/entertainment/science/culture.

Disappointed solar eclipse-viewers post their underwhelming photos of the once-in-a-lifetime spectacle that left them wondering what all the fuss was about – Though the media will wriggle and squirm while trying to convince otherwise.

A Total Solar Eclipse Leaves a Nation in Awe – The totally underwhelming reality as opposed to  the totally overwhelming media build-up and hype will now give way to the Corporate Media’s “Gosh! Wasn’t it awesome!” assessments. These false reports will then become the official history of the event.

Quick: name the number of music awards TV shows.

Time’s up.

MTV Awards Sunday night: Time for more shock TV? – It’s not about the awards.

It ceased being about the awards–or even the music–long, long ago.

It’s about how much perversity can be dripped into the public consciousness.

Particularly into the minds of the youth.

Welfare’s customer service problem

Its intentionally mean bureaucracy is crushing poor Americans.

Fort Knox opens its impregnable doors to civilians for the first time since 1974… and they all swear that the $186 billion protected in its vaults IS definitely still there – The “civilians” were all politicians–and most KNOW how trustworthy the word of a politician is.

DNC hack theories once considered extreme and fringe now entering mainstream – Not even theories held by the Democratic National Committee are no longer acceptable.

The lesson to be learned here:  the only good theories are those theories accepted by the government/media.

ALL of the government/media.

THE OCCULT and the CHURCH: Science teams with the occult and both have infiltrated the church.

The Bible has nothing good to say about the end times churches.

Little wonder: the end times churches have become the centers of witchcraft and the occult.

How to stay private on public Wi-Fi

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”
–2Peter 2:1

Inside Jim Bakker’s Missouri town prepping for the nuclear Apocalypse and ECLIPSE fallout – where people come to stock up on freeze-dried meals and idolize the TV preacher who was jailed for fraud and accused of rape – Jim Bakker is one of the many, many, many imposters who curse the public airwaves.

OF COURSE, if one is a follower of Jim Bakker, one will likely not regard any warnings about charlatans and false teachers.

Another in the seemingly-unending line of false teachers and prophets is David Jeremiah.

A beautiful way to read Psalms and Proverbs each day – (h/t:F)

Again, IF one is a follower of David Jeremiah, one will likely disregard any warnings concerning false teachers and prophets.

America, Home of the Transactional Marriage – An entertaining narrative but a narrative nonetheless.

Today, though, just over half of women in their early 40s with a high-school degree or less education are married, compared to three-quarters of women with a bachelor’s degree; in the 1970s, there was barely a difference. The marriage gap for men has changed less over the years…

One rule of thumb for the taking down of the country once known as the United States of America: IF it is useful, it must be diminished to the point of eliminating it. It doesn’t matter if the useful item is knowledge, a handy tool or an operating system; if it is useful, get rid of it!

The Fading Art Of Diagramming Sentences – Ah yes.

Diagramming sentences” taught English sentence structure and word type and usage like no other exercise–which is why it has become a thing o the past.

It’s hard to dumb down the population if they are taught useful information.

The best slaves (those easiest to control) are slaves who no longer can think for themselves.

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)? One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article. When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master. “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events. Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do. ALL political “news” is narrative.
