What Do The Las Vegas Massacre, Terrorism, Climate Change, Earthquakes, Racism And North Korea Have In Common?

October 2, 2017

At this point we have something like 58 dead and more than 500 wounded in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.  It was the PERFECT venue for such an attack: the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino overlooking a mass-attended open-air concert venue.  It takes a highly-trained marksman to account for the trajectory of projectiles from such a range and such an elevation difference (unless he’d target-practiced and zeroed his weapons for that elevation, which suggest a chilling level of planning and preparation); and we know the shooter did not have military training.  But we also realize he didn’t need training for his evil task: what he did was literally easier than hitting the broad side of a barn and he probably could have quickly begun to figure out that he needed to aim low to be more accurate.  But seriously, how hard is it to hit SOMEBODY in a giant crowd of people when you literally have that entire crowd in your sights?   This attack tactic will be repeated again, and again, count on it.

Further, the height of the 32nd floor shooter’s position, plus the noise of a music concert event, would have made it difficult to even identify that someone was shooting as opposed to fireworks (as has happened several times before at concert shootings to confuse and disorient the crowd).  We have a dead suspect named Stephen Paddock and all we know about the guy was his age, something about his work history, and very little else.  Islamic State claimed credit for his attack, but as of now nothing has been reported that there is any clue about what this mass murderer’s beliefs are that motivated this act of hate.

There were numerous veterans present, who were able to quickly recognize the telltale sound of gunfire and comprehend the threat, who were able to direct a panicking crowd without a stampede, and even able to perform tourniquets on wounded people.  As bad as this was, it could have been far, FAR worse with a stampede.

I heard someone say on television, “I’m glad the shooter wasn’t a minority.”  And I was thinking, “What does that have to do with anything?”  It’s what separates me from many liberals: it is NOT the color of one’s skin that dictates what we are; it is rather the content of our character that matters.  What did this guy believe?  And at this point, we don’t have any idea.  It is amazing how little we know about this man who just perpetuated the greatest mass shooting in our history.  He chose the most conservative possible venue short of a Trump rally: country music.  That most country music fans are Republicans is as easy to prove as the rabid depth of leftwing hate: CBS just FIRED its vice president and senior legal counsel, Hayley Geftman-Gold, for posting on Facebook:

“I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”

It’s amazing.  There was an article in the Los Angeles Times about using Facebook to deal with hate.  And the ONLY haters the fool who wrote the article was capable of seeing was “white supremacists.”  Facebook employees would spend the rest of their careers dealing with all the whackjob leftwing hate if they bothered to consider it for what it obviously is.  I am actually surprised that CBS moved so quickly, given that many other major networks have had top talent that said as bad and they still have their jobs.  Because the narrow-minded, rabidly intolerant bigots who make up the leftwing never even pause to consider that their hate is just as hateful as anyone else’s.

Do you realize that this CBS network executive is every bit as filled with hate as the man who shot up that concert?  The only difference is that she might – at least before she got herself fired for revealing the darkness and ugliness of her heart – have more reason to live than  Stephen Paddock.  Interestingly, one of the frequent leftist excuses for terrorism – economic inequality – was also taken off the table:  Stephen Paddock was a MILLIONAIRE.

So it’s just like all the damn butthurt millionaire NFL anuses: they sure aren’t protesting their lack of access to the American Dream.  If anything else, liberalism makes one feel guilty for actually ever achieving anything.

Stop and think: we now live in an age where it’s unsafe to go to a movie theater; it’s unsafe to go to a nightclub; it’s unsafe to go to a baseball field; and in other parts of the world concerts have already been attacked so we already knew it was unsafe to go to a concert.  It’s the new normal.  Fear is the new normal.  And it is amazing how quickly the left ramps up its machine – even when the shooting is an Islamist terrorist attack – and blames not terrorism, not human evil, but GUNS.  Guns did this, they tell us.

That’s what former CBS vice president and senior legal counsel Hayley Geftman-Gold believes, anyway.

Of course, leftist political activists – the left has yearned for gun control in every area they have ever controlled, from the Soviet Union to Nazi Germany to communist China and dozens of other such dictatorships that have left the people afraid of their government when our founding fathers very deliberately wanted a government afraid of its people – are already exploiting the emotions and demanding gun control, just as they always do and just as they always have.

It is now being revealed that the shooter was armed with several fully automatic weapons.

Do you know it is against the law to either purchase a weapon capable of full automatic fire or to modify a weapon so that it is capable of full automatic fire???

But this killer had these weapons anyway.

Which means … which means … omigosh!!!  These gun laws don’t actually WORK, do they???!!!????!!!

Which is what we’ve been saying ever since the first human being devolved into a stupid enough creature to begin mewling idiocy about gun control laws being the solution to our problems.

And then there is this special little bit of spectacular hypocrisy and stupidity of a group of liberals who are even now demanding that we LEGALIZE drugs because, after all, attempting to control them has failed:

Which is to say that if gun control works, then drug control surely also works, and anyone who wants to prove that something the 2nd Amendment GUARANTEES Americans the right to have can be “controlled” has the moral obligation to at least prove that such controls work by controlling all drugs.  It’s not any harder to build your own AK-47 (and see here for a different technique) than it is to grow your own pot, kids.  People who want to ban drugs at least have a case that drugs are NOT guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment.  People who want to liberalize mind altering substances but ban guns are frankly morally whackjob.

In my life I have been a bouncer and I have even been a cop.  And I can assure you that overwhelmingly, mind-altering substances consumption occurs before the violence begins.  I’ve seen it over and over again, and I am literally able to testify as an expert.  But I don’t need to because there are so many other experts who have already testified (and see here).

Which reminds me of one more image to post:

But this article isn’t about gun control or trying to stop gun control.  The point I am going to make is that the United States has ALWAYS been a nation of guns in the hands of free citizens, and yet it is only recently a crisis.  We see studies that look at the last 25 years or so.  But America has ALWAYS had guns.  Instead of examining statistics since 1993 and looking for trends, why don’t we go back to 1793?  Something has changed in America, and it isn’t that guns started killing people, or that pencils started misspelling words (which is also an epidemic since I was a kid, contemplating our rapidly declining literacy rates), or that cars suddenly started driving drunk, or that spoons for the first time in our thin history started making us fat.

I wonder how Hayley Geftman-Gold would have felt if she was in the situation that singer Kaya Jones described:

“We went down to the bus, then we knew we weren’t safe on the bus—we came back up and pretty much were barricaded inside of the bar—there was one person with a gun with seven rounds and in that moment, you know, luckily we had an FBI agent who was on his honeymoon and he showed his information and said ‘I’m not carrying, does anyone have a gun?’ and handed it over to him and he stood guard at the door,” she said.

How do you think Ms. Geftman-Gold would have felt if she was in that bar and heard that yes, somebody DID have a gun to protect that door with?  Reminds me of this:

The same kind of facts that document that every single mass shooting in our nation’s recent history occurred at a “gun-free zone” and proves that even leftist analysis reveals that not one single gun law would have stopped one single mass shooting also proves that every single time a vile human being starts shooting people, that shooting is stopped when and only when a good guy with a gun shows up.  Because otherwise we’re helpless sheep.  And it is a bizarre mind that craves being a helpless sheep who is totally dependent on his or her government.

We’ve got Black Lives Matter protesting the evil police.  We’ve got the left rabidly protesting the President of the United States, the Republican-controlled government.  Even as they just as rabidly scream that only the evil police and the evil president should be allowed to have guns.  Quite insane.  Literally insane.  Honestly.

It’s not guns doing this stuff, you leftist fools.

Yesterday I saw a news story that displayed the massive rise of violence at fast food restaurants.  Violent attacks DOUBLED in five years.  It’s out of control.  And for the most part, guns weren’t involved; it was just incredibly dysfunctional people who had no ability to control their incredibly dysfunctional emotions.

The same thing is going on in airline flights.  “Air rage” incidents have recently skyrocketed.  People are losing it like we’ve never seen before in numbers we’ve never seen before.

Interestingly, gun violence has actually DECREASED even as the number of guns sold has INCREASED.  So apparently the guns aren’t killing people, after all.

Something far, FAR more than guns is going on here.  I believe that ought to be obvious to any morally sentient being.

To the extent we have more “gun violence,” it is NOT the guns; it is more violent PEOPLE.  It is more dysfunctional people who are capable of pulling a trigger and killing their fellow human beings.

And the REAL question ought to be, “What has caused such an increase in violent behavior in people?”

Let me explain what the REAL cause of the violence we are seeing is:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.  — 2 Timothy 3:1-5

There is a now-famous line that was falsely attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville’s great work, Democracy in America.  It is a false attribution. which may have come from a 1941 book on religion and the American Dream, but for my purposes and my point that does not change the power of this powerful quote now, because the following words are now at LEAST 75 years old and date back to a period when without question, the United States of America was without any question whatsoever the greatest and most powerful nation on earth:

Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.

And here we are, increasingly ceasing to be great, torn apart by divisions so bitter and so deep and with so much hate that we are ready to fight OURSELVES to death, let alone at the hands of any foreign enemy.  We live in a time when it seems that most of our celebrities and athletes literally despise this nation and will not stand for it or honor it, but only tear it down.  Which is all the wise need to know to realize that our days as the greatest nation in the world are behind us; our days before our catastrophic fall are immediately before us.  The wisdom of Abraham Lincoln grasped what is before us: no house can stand divided.

The poisonous hate of the left now has guaranteed that this house will surely fall.  If they believe they can hate the current president and the current House and Senate, thinking that their hatred and their contempt and their spirit of bitter disregard for our leaders and their laws will not still apply when THEIR president and THEIR House and Senate take power, they are true fools, indeed.

This nation’s doom is certain.  And Colin Kaepernick is wearing the jersey of the team who destroyed America.

And the doom of the United States of America is quite literally in the Bible; nowhere does the Word of God mention the United States.  Because in the last days the United States will either not exist, or it will be so weak as to be irrelevant to the world events that the Bible describes taking place.

Something that is important to point out is that this Stephen Paddock had no religious belief.  Which is to say he was an atheist or at the very least a secular humanist.  Congratulations: he just continued to prove what history has already proven for more than a century: that the only thing even more dangerous than being an Islamic jihadist is to be an atheist.  The worldview of atheism has been responsible for well over the murders of one hundred million people during peacetime alone.

Add another 59 to that tally of the horrifying death toll of not having any God to be morally accountable to.

So the problem is not that people are allowed to have guns.  If we were all decent, righteous people we could have all the guns in the world and no one would ever shoot anyone.  Rather, the problem is that people are progressively – largely due to the amoral and too often immoral values that liberal progressivism instills – becoming more and more depraved and vile and evil.

Leads me to this:

Because it’s unquestionably true: if you were to remove the guns from all the voting groups that tend to vote “Democrat,” our gun violence would drop massively.  We have watched our morality, our family values, our once-great culture, progressively destroyed.  And we who sowed to the wind are reaping the whirlwind that amorality.

Now, I also mentioned a bunch of other stuff in my title: terrorism, climate change, racism, North Korea.  Hey, the fecal matter is really hitting the rotary oscillator these days in spite of the fact that we’ve always had fecal matter of one form or another and we’ve always had rotary oscillators of one form or another.

Climate change?  It’s not just about climate change.  We’re having massive earthquakes in Mexico – more than one – that have killed at least 340 people.  Even the hurricanes cannot be linked to climate change.  Even the reliably left-of-center Politifact acknowledges that there is no clear link between hurricanes and climate change, or even that a majority of scientists believes in such a link at this point.  Real scientists – a rare thing these days in an age when ideology trumps everything and people use “science” to justify whatever conclusion they want to justify as a matter of routine – state quite clearly that there is no justified scientific reason to attribute anything to man-caused climate change:

NOAA said records of past ­Atlantic tropical storm or hurricane numbers from 1878 to the present show a pronounced ­upward trend, which is also correlated with rising sea surface temperatures.

“However, the density of reporting ship traffic over the Atlantic was relatively sparse during the early decades of this record, such that if storms from the modern era (post 1965) had hypothetically ­occurred during those earlier decades, a substantial number would likely not have been directly ­observed by the ship-based ­‘observing network of opportunity’ ”, NOAA said.

“We find that, after adjusting for such an estimated number of missing storms, there is a small nominally positive upward trend in tropical storm occurrence from 1878-2006,” NOAA said.

“But statistical tests reveal that this trend is so small, relative to the variability in the series, that it is not significantly distinguishable from zero,” it said.

It found the rising trend in ­Atlantic tropical storm counts was almost entirely because of increases in storms of less than two days, which were particularly likely to have been overlooked in the ear­lier part of the record.

NOAA said the evidence for an upward trend was even weaker for hurricanes that made landfall in the US, which showed a slight negative trend beginning from 1900 or from the late 1800s.

“While major hurricanes show more evidence of a rising trend from the late 1800s, the major hurricane data are considered” unreliable, NOAA said.

“In short, the historical Atlantic hurricane record does not provide compelling evidence for a substantial greenhouse warming-induced long-term increase.”

And yet SOMETHING is sure going on.  The worst hurricanes hitting Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico in our lifetimes.

And the rise in racism, not just in the USA but all over the planet.

The massive, MASSIVE rise in terrorism.

North Korea not only getting the hydrogen bomb, but the means to reliably deliver such a dreadful weapon to the United States on an intercontinental ballistic missile.  And since North Korea has been established to share its developments with Iran, the two most whackjob regimes on the face of the earth will soon have the means to murder millions and bathe the world in blood.

I’m just going to state something as a matter of basic factual truth: “climate change” belongs to the evangelical, fundamentalist CHRISTIAN more than it does to any liberal progressive on earth.  When I was a kid in the 1970s, the alarmist climate scientists were predicting an ICE AGE.

And even the godfather of global warming himself pointed out as a FACT that temperatures were HOTTER and sea levels have been HIGHER before humans caused anything than they are now.

But Jesus and even the Old Testament prophets were prophesying bizarre, fatal, terrifying weather 2,000 years ago and beyond that we would begin to see as the last days came upon us the way birth pangs come upon a pregnant woman and become closer and closer together and worse and worse.

“And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides.  People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken.  — Luke 21:25-26

Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.  And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.  Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world.  But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.  “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.  — Matthew 24:4-9

This “climate change” stuff isn’t the left’s issue; it is the Christian fundamentalist’s issue.  Passages of Scripture like Amos 4:7 teach that God says, “I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed the most.  I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another.  Rain fell on one field, while another field withered away.”  That it is THE LORD GOD who is responsible for our weather.  And that same LORD GOD told us that the wickedness of the weather would correspond to the increasing wickedness of the human heart in the last days.

Jesus told us that racism would increase.  “Nation will go to war against nation” is actually “Ethnic group will go to war with ethnic group.”  The Greek word used in Matthew 24:7 is “ethnos.”  And especially when Jesus also clarifies that kingdom will rise against kingdom, He was specifically referring to ethnic/racial identify as well as to geographical/political boundary (kingdom).

It’s amazing how liberals – and by “liberals” I really mean the pawns of the devil – are hard at work attempting to hijack every single one of these issues that the Jesus they despise prophesied about 2,000 years ago as issues they can frame against the very fundamentalist Christians who saw all of these things coming centuries before the oldest liberal’s oldest great-great-great-great grandpappy was in diapers.

It’s an amazing act of demonic deception.

The amazing thing to me is that all of these things – shocking violence that isn’t the way it used to be (which means they need to take away our guns because things have gotten so much worse); shocking weather that isn’t the way it used to be (which means they need to take incredibly draconian steps to cool down our planet because its so much warmer than it used to be); racism that is so much worse (which means they have to blame Trump for this intolerable rise in white supremacy); and meanwhile we’re obviously getting closer and closer to “the big one” in California while frightening nations such as North Korea and Iran that want to bathe the world in blood either already have or very soon will have nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles to attack the United States with.  And its not right wing fundamentalist Christians who are doing most of the scaremongering about these things; it’s godless left wing secular humanists.  The most godless ones are openly acknowledging that ALL the things that Jesus said would happen in the days just before the coming Antichrist and just before His own return as King of kings and Lord of lords are taking place!!!

But then, being godless and as a result of being godless true fools according to Psalm 14:1, they distort and twist these facts to spin their own demonic agenda.

Even as the leftwing media hypes all of these things and blames the rightwing – which in America largely means blames Christian fundamentalists – morally sentient people ought to be considering all the issues that the left is hyping and realize that Jesus said these very things that the demonic left is so hysterically hyping were ALL at the very heart of what He said would happen in the last days before He returned as King of kings and Lord of lords is happening.

It’s like I previously said in one of my articles: the fact that Donald Trump is president, both the worst atheist and the most faithful Christian can now completely agree: the world REALLY IS coming to an end.  I am reminded by a quote from the famous astronomer Robert Jastrow in his book “God and the Astronomer:

“At this moment it seems as though science will never be able to raise the curtain on the mystery of creation.  For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance, he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

Do you finally believe the world is coming to an end?  Welcome to the club.  But ALL the best seats in the theater have been taken by Christians who have been waiting for you to figure this out for centuries.

In other words, a morally sentient person would listen to MSNBC, would listen to CNN, would listen to ABC, NBC and CBS, and would fall on his or her face and REPENT and turn in faith to Jesus Christ before its too late.
