SATAN’S MOUTHPIECE: The Corporate Media

Donald Trump bans ALL immigration into the U.S. to ‘protect jobs’ as coronavirus pandemic puts 22 million Americans out of work – but critics call it ‘pointless’ because country is already shut – “Pointless”  is too kind.

Trump says he’ll ‘suspend immigration’ into the U.S. – IN CASE the reader is unfamiliar with the TALK of Donald Trump: don’t expect the WALK to follow the TALK.

The TALK is for the rubes.

QUOTES: A Few Thoughts on Voting

“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”
Winston Churchill

Others might insist that a five-minute conversation with one of the political puppets is the best argument against democracy.

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

POLLS: Another Way to Lie

Do you believe the media? Then why do you believe their lying polls?

“Political campaigns today are all side shows, all honors, all bombast, glitter, and speeches. These are for the most part unrelated to the main business of studying the party scientifically, of supplying the public with party, candidate, platform, and performance, and selling the public these ideas and products.”
Edward Bernays, Propaganda (1928)

POLLS: The Fiction of Polls and Public Opinion

“There is no public opinion. There is only published opinion.”
–Winston Churchill

The Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Polls

“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

CoronaCoincidence: What Are the Chances?



“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

conceit: n,

1- A novel or fanciful idea; a whim.

2- An ingenious expression or metaphorical idea, especially in extended form or used as a literary or rhetorical device.


[F.A. Hayek] labels as the “fatal conceit” the idea that “man is able to shape the world around him according to his wishes.”
–from The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism, W.W. Bartley, Editor

Recently the question was asked, “Why make a big deal over the differences between those you say are the few who are true Christians and those who are trying to be good people?”

“Because it IS important.  It IS a big deal.”

“Why is it so important? What’s wrong with people who are just trying to be good people?”

 “You want the short version or the long version?”

“Better keep it short.  I have a feeling that’s gonna be pretty long.”

“Okay, there’s a couple of reasons why it is so important.  FIRST, you say why not just leave all of those people alone who are “trying to be good people”?

The Bible says there are NO good people.

“The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
–Psalm 14:2-3

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
–Romans 3:10-12

“Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
–Psalm 53:3

“So, all of those people who believe they are “good people”?

“They could not be more wrong: they need help and they need it NOW! IF they think they are doing okay NOW, then why would they ever want to know God and His Son, Jesus Christ?”

“The SECOND reason it is so important is that one of the best ways to find God and His great mercy is to SEEK Him. But not only seek Him, but seek Him WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART!”

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
–Matthew 7:7-8

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
–Jeremiah 29:13

“IF someone thinks they have already found God, they will NOT seek Him.  Why search for something you already think you have found? —and they will NOT find Him. And they will pay the price for their ignorance.”

“Like so much else: IF one doesn’t know the problem, one can never find the solution.”

“Those are two reasons it is so important to let people know.  Of course, they almost all reject what they’re being told. 

“After all, they’re “good people.”

WHY Oil Prices Fell Below Zero

How come? Because we are literally running out of places to put all of the extra oil we’re not using, because people have stopped driving, flying, or living any semblance of normal life while the country descends into a state of coronavirus-induced catatonia.

The oil companies apparently are just not GIVING AWAY their oil–the oil companies are PAYING folks to take their oil off of their hands!

Makes one wonder how they stayed in business over the years?

It is probably too much trouble to stop paying their employees to extract all of this unused, no-place-to-put-it oil?

THAT is what usually happens when there is too much of a product: they quit making it for awhile.

Satan, devil, demon

New Christian Contemplatives

At St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia, people from many religious and spiritual traditions gather on Sunday nights to encounter the divine through stillness, silence, music, meditation, prayer, and ancient liturgies and sacraments.

Here’s a clue: any time the reader sees the media referring to “the divine,” it’s almost ALWAYS a reference to demonic power.

Same goes for references to “mystical experiences.”

Whenever the reader sees a reference to “getting in touch with the divinity within (or the inner child, or inner anything), it’s a reference to demonic power. An “encounter with the divine” is an encounter with demonic power.

Demons, the Demonic: Cover Stories for Demons and Demonic Power

Oh, the ones making such references will protest: that’s why they use these terms. There is no “divine” in man: that is an old, old lie from Satan.

It’s one of the original lies told by the serpent in the garden of Eden.

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
–Genesis 3:5

Everyone LOVES to hear and see DRAMA, right?

And what is more dramatic than an apparent feud among the beautiful people, right?

Particularly if the “feud” is between celebrities, politicos or royal nabobs?

What would the beautiful people do with themselves if not for their never-ending feuds?

Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) has always had a problem: what to do when too many of the rich and celebrated have NOTHING “newsworthy” to do. When the media gets tired of reporting what the rich and celebrated are wearing, they turn to the tried-and-true method of of fake “feuds” to generate cheap, plastic “news.” One popular singer’s entire marketing campaign over the years seems to have been based on engaging in one “feud” after another. But, as the “victims” appear to be primarily the singer’s “fans,” it’s hard to get too worked up over the ruse.

Sports, politics and celebrity culture, European royalty–wherever the rich and celebrated congregate: these are the arenas where readers can most often find stories of “feuds.

Oh–and pro wrestling…

One can depend on those who labor for the mystery of iniquity to act, in not only an EVIL manner, but also in a very repetitive one as well.

Case in point: when two followers of Satan are working together, one of the first things they do is establish that they 1-do not like each other; 2- they hate each other; or, 3- are fighting against one another.

Democrats and Republicans, Russia and the USA, members of the same family who toil together for evil ends, famous celebrities who are “feuding” with each other: it happens so often, one occasionally has to wonder,

“Does Satan have a university or school where he teaches his followers these tricks?”

If the recent coronavirus-caused disruptions of everyday routine have made clear, it is that the United States of America is a land of STUFF.

Lots and lots of STUFF.

STUFF that has been–in the great majority of cases–bought, paid for and squirreled away for the future use of such stuff.

It is revealing to listen to people talk about their STUFF, if only for a few minutes.

“I love my truck!  I keep it tuned up until it purrs like a kitten!”

“I don’t know what I’d do without my collections. I travel all over the country and everywhere I go, I pick up a shot glass or a plate or BOTH!  It’s like keeping a scrapbook–only better! Every time I wash my sets, the memories of where I’ve been come rushing back to me!”

Americans COVET their STUFF.

Some old.

Some new.

Some borrowed.

Some blue.

Lots and lots of STUFF!

STUFF is proof that the American Dream is still alive!

Americans have so much STUFF, they don’t have any place to put it.

Many Americans rent storage space.

Mainly, as a place to stash all of their STUFF.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

“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.

gay couple

The gay wedding gotcha question that isn’t – Articles such as this one are written to perpetuate the lie that most Americans accept homosexual “marriage.”

It’s designed to make any who do not (which is still the vast majority of Americans, regardless of what the media variously claims) tow the party line feel alienated and “peculiar.”

Of course, Christians should feel peculiar all of the time.

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
1 Peter 2:9

Christians are also to pray so the homosexual may be delivered into the kingdom of heaven.



Beast of Revelation

“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”
–Revelation 13:8

Yes, we know there are TWO beasts mentioned in Revelation 13. We are referring to the first beast, introduced in Revelation 13:1

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
–Revelation 13:1

Much has been written about the two beasts of Revelation 13. Much has been written to purposely mislead readers. This has been taking place for hundreds of years.


1- The two beasts are SYSTEMS, as clearly explained by the angel to John. The first beast is given a mouth to speak for it. This appears to be the man of sin (Who is also called the “false prophet”).

2- The first beast is ALSO a king.  Which is the Bible referring to: the system or the king?  It depends upon the context of the verse which refers to the beast.

Some background on the beast(s) in Revelation 13.

The prophet Daniel had a vision about four beasts.  The fourth of Daniel’s beasts is the same as the first beast described in Revelation 13.

“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.”
–Daniel 7:7-8

Daniel speaks to an angel and the asks him the truth concerning the beasts. Concerning Daniel’s discussion with the angel, Daniel reveals a bit more.

“Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.”
–Daniel 7:19-22

This was the same beast which King Nebuchadnezzar had earlier seen in his own dream–which Daniel interpreted for the king.

First, the interpretation of the king’s dream was revealed to Daniel in a night vision.

“Then was the secret [of the interpretation of the king’s dream] revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.”
–Daniel 2:19-22

Then, Daniel went in to see the king. The king not only wanted the interpretation of his dream: the king would not tell anyone what the dream was he had dreamed–the king wished for a “wise man” to tell him the dream AND the interpretation.

“The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these; As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass. But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.”
–Daniel 2:26-30

What in the king’s dream was relevant to Daniel’s later vision?

Daniel saw the fourth beast kingdom; he saw it destroyed by the return of Jesus Christ to earth and the setting up of the kingdom of heaven (God)–(though Daniel did not know the dream was specifically referring to someone named Jesus).

“This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”
–Daniel 2:36,40,44-45

FINALLY, Daniel was later told the meaning of his vision of four beasts by an angel.

The angel tells Daniel the beasts of his vision are KINGS.

“I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things. These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.”
–Daniel 7:16-18

Daniel wants to know more.

“Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.”
–Daniel 7:19-22

So, the angel also tells Daniel the beasts are the KINGDOMS of those four kings. The fourth beast kingdom–unlike the other beasts–shall rule the entire earth.

“Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”
–Daniel 7:23-27

3- The first beast of Revelation 13 (as opposed to the SECOND beast of Revelation 13) is a POLITICAL system with a POLITICAL king (leader).

4- The second beast of Revelation 13 is a RELIGIOUS system with a RELIGIOUS leader (the False Prophet).

4- Though there are two beasts mentioned in Revelation 13, by the end of the chapter, there is only one beast.

All the references at the end of the chapter are to “the beast,” not “the beasts.”

“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 13:17-18

5- John is told by the angel that the ten horns are ten kings (leaders). These leaders control the worldwide political system at the beginning. Eventually, three of these leaders lose their place (Daniel 7:8).

6- This happens when the man of sin ascends and takes control of the beast. The political and the religious systems merge into one worldwide system of control under the man of sin.

7- The angel also tells John the seven heads are seven world empires. The last empire had not yet come when the angel’s visitation took place; this last empire would “when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”  It sounds as if this last empire is the worldwide beast empire of Revelation 13.

8- One of the heads of the beast receives what appears to be a deadly wound. This wound comes by the sword (war).

9- This head (king/kingdom) of the world empire appears to be dead; to have been killed by the sword (war), but it only LOOKS that way. The world empire recovers.

10- The beast (political/religious system) that “was and is not” goes into perdition (eternal destruction and torment). Originally, this system came out of the bottomless pit, where it had been held.

There are many additional observations.

These will be the topic of an upcoming article.
