Come Out of the Churches, Thou Unclean Spirits


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This title is a re-working of the command given one or two demons afflicting men of the Gergesenes. See: Matthew 8:28-34, Mark 5:1-17 (KJV). Previously the demons forced the men into violent isolation, making them a general nuisance and a menace. Jesus commanded their departure and they left.

I have no such innate power. Yet I see abundant evil – either demonic or of collectively self-inflicted free will – in much of modern life and society. I write about it frequently here and, now, in a few other forums.


TV Tropes.

Often I describe various phenomena as Hellish, Satanic, and demonic. These labels I truly mean and not just as attention getters. Manifestation of evil is everywhere: almost every action of every government; promiscuity of all sorts; debased, low “culture” in music, sports, and entertainment; pagan rituals; outright witchcraft; Satanic invocations at government meetings; reliance (dependence) on the enemies of Christ in life, civic, financial and educational; sloth as far as the eye can see (or stand to look). Worst of all is the false theology espoused by so many in the West – the replacement of God with the state and self-serving cotton-candy irreligious nonsense.

My friends in the Alt-Right describe this fake Christianity as “Churchianity”. It is the belief that by attending some rock and roll church and hearing sermons devoid of meaning that souls are somehow able to lead good, egalitarian lives. It is crippling the West, the very heart of Christendom. Once it shows signs of weakness the forces of evil pounce on it all the harder. It is weakened again and again. To the point of worse than worthlessness – it in fact becomes part of the evil itself.

As positive instruction it is noted that this has all happened before, even in the time of Christ and the Apostles. Jason Charles and Rev. Chuck Baldwin each wrote recently of the demise of so many churches in America, succumbing to the new theology of cultural Marxism (that really is nothing new).

Wrote Charles:

The Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:12 wished castration upon the doctrine perverting Judaized preachers of his day.

“I would they were even cut off which trouble you” Galatians 5:12 (KJV)
“As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!” Galatians 5:12 (NIV)

Neuter: A general term used to describe the castration of a male animal.

Can you imagine? An Apostle of Jesus Christ using this phraseology at all? But he did when addressing the usurping teachers that came in among the congregations of churches that he planted, especially in the Church of Galatia. To get the whole back-story read through Acts Chapter 5, and also read the entire book of Galatians. You will quickly realize he is talking about the Judaizers.

The reason why the Apostle Paul was vehemently opposed to these Judaizers was because in an ultimate sense, it was false doctrine that taught the superiority of the Mosaic Law over Christ. That meant it immediately became a salvation issue for Paul. Therefore he brought it to the wisdom and counsel of the other Apostles in Jerusalem, as seen in Galatians 5. At that counsel the Holy Spirit affirmed the total forsaking of the Judaizers among all congregations in no uncertain terms.

Baldwin notes that many (most?) American churches today are willingly held in line by their IRS 501 status. They dare not preach the actual gospel or analogize it to decadent American society for risk of losing money. Thus, they are little better than the emasculated Pharisees of Paul’s day.

These congregations and their cancerous leaders are to be shunned as they serve no purpose but to call into the world more evil. And the evil keeps coming in.

In addition to ample man-made malady, demonic activity and possession is on the rise across the globe. Wesley Baines interviewed Fr. Gary Thomas, a Vatican trained exorcist. Thomas explained that there is an increasing incidence of possession by fallen spirits which afflicts protestants and atheists as well as Catholics.

The Church has instituted elaborate procedures to ensure that a demon is really a demon rather than being merely a medical or physiological ailment. Once properly identified a demon is cast out by the Power of Christ similar to the above-cited original exorcisms.

Thomas notes that demons react violently to the sacred. I find it interesting that the demons described by Matthew and Mark knew immediately and without need of introduction who Jesus was. This is testament to their nature as well as reassurance of their eventual demise; He commanded and they were forced to obey.

Again, I have no such authority nor do you, except for protection and Grace granted by the Son. The time is now to use said faculty along with free discernment to exorcise from our society those perils of evil tradition. This starts be recognizing what has happened. Reflect on this and compare it to your experience this morning at your church; look around a the failed culture and think.

*Of interest also is the frequency of comments to the above-linked articles suggesting reliance on the Republican Party to cure the afflictions. This is beyond self-defeating as it places undue faith in a member of the viral swarm to cure the illness it helped cause. Political solutions there are not.


Civil Liberties Feel the Sting of the Police State


, , , , , , , , ,

Nature’s stingray is an animal unassuming and yet not to be trifled with. One killed famed crocodile hunter Steve Irwin. The lesson for surviving around these beautiful fish is to leave them alone.


National Geographic.

The police have a device, a surveillance tool, named after the humble stingray. This insidious peace of technological malice mimics cell-phone towers. It tricks your phone into communicating with it. Once a link is established the stingray can listen to and record conversations and search through stored data. All of this is generally accomplished without a warrant.

The ACLU is a mixed bag. On the one had they champion many causes which seem at odds with American societal fabric – or, at least the fabric of the of the former country. However, they also consistently target out of control police state tactics. Thus, they have an active, searchable map of which agencies have these devices and how they are used. Please consult the map to discover whether you might be at risk.


American Civil Liberties Union.

WE, who value freedom, owe the ACLU for producing this service.

Efforts are afoot to legislate limit on how the Stingray and related machines are used. Most of those will fail. Even if they succeed, the technology will change and cause further problems.

Cellular transmissions are considered “open-air” and can usually be intercepted without a warrant. Technically, anyone with the right equipment could access the subject information. There are really only two ways to beat this terror. One, encrypt calls and information. This is difficult and increasingly illegal. The other way is to limit phone activity and to shield the phone from transmitting or receiving signals when not in use. This is possible but burdensome. There is a third way – don’t have a modern phone – but that is rather self-defeating.

For now, just beware that more and more criminal government agents are able to eavesdrop on you.

**I noticed the ACLU has an Election 2016 page. I looked at it. The first thing that caught my eye was this picture:



Look at those two faces. This perfectly captures the essence of the Great Quadrennial Black Mass. Ha!

Of course, after the picture, the ACLU takes Hillary over Trump. That’s their right. I just love the sour-puss pictures.





Gunning Down Communism: American Women Shoot Straight


, , , , , , , ,

At the start of the Rio Olympics I hailed America’s first gold medalist, crack-shot Virginia Thrasher. This week I delved into the irrational fear of guns and hatred of freedom held by so many feminists. I find the total lack of praise for Ms. Thrasher from groups like NOW disconcerting though not unexpected.

Joe Briggs heaps the deserved praise on another American shooter – Kimberly Rhode. Rhode isn’t just world-class, she’s timeless. She is one of only two people out of 184,869 all time Olympians – and the only woman – to medal six times in six different games. You haven’t heard bout her because she wields a shotgun rather than a tennis racket or a soccer ball.

Kimberly Rhode is so well-known in shooting circles that the Winchester Repeating Arms Company of New Haven, Conn., developed a special shotgun shell just for her, with a load that reduces the recoil on her overtaxed right shoulder. Here’s a wow fact for you: Kimberly is one of only four people pictured on a Winchester ammunition box since the founding of the company in 1855. The other three are company founder Oliver Winchester, Teddy Roosevelt, and John Wayne.



Taki’s Mag.

One would think feminists would go crazy (crazier than normal) over such a standout athlete who is of their preferred sex. They don’t. They, like the communists in government, the lap-dog media, and the dishonest and useless IOC, hate guns. Guns equal free people and free people are bad for the plans those groups share.

Briggs also mentions another woman, Zhang Chan of China, who in 1992 demonstrated such incredible command of the shotgun as to upset the world order of shooting. She actually lived up the feminist’s little girl taunt “anything you can do, I can do better”. Silence from the left ensued.

These are great examples of guns being used, without revolution, to upset the new world order. We can all learn a little and be inspired by them. We need to praise our heroes and recognize our enemies.

Congratulations Ms. Rhode! Keep shooting for the stars – and at the commies.

Cigars Are Healthy: More Government Lies Debunked


, , , , , , , ,

Two of my major themes here are that I: 1) hate government in all its evil lowliness, and; 2) I love cigars. Today I have greater reason to champion both of these worthy ideas.

The FDA is waging all out war on the premium cigar industry. Stupid law after draconian regulation threaten to disrupt if not kill the family of the leaf. It’s all part of the government’s larger war on freedom. They hate us, seeing us as little more than cattle to be milked of taxes until we die. Die will shall some day but not due to our cigars.

Cigars are bad, lies the state, because of children and health and safety and other BS – all of it dead wrong. It seems that the FDA has in its possession an in-house study which shows there are no significant health risks associated with smoking 1 – 2 cigars per day. The study was an amalgam of multiple independent medical studies conducted between 1965 and 2000.

The study noted that all examined types of cancers and maladies were in some way associated with cigars – they found that people will eventually die of something. Most people know that anyway. However, the increased risk associated with cigars is negligible, almost nonexistent; it looks to be an average increase of about 1%.

That’s it. One percent and cigars are bad. Most scientists and statisticians will tell you about something known as the margin of error in studies like this. It may be that cigars actually impart zero risk.

Of course the government spun its finding – when it finally released them – in the typical dishonest official way. (Seems to me they’ve been hiding this information). They summarized their findings, saying that cigar smoking is associated with death. They left out the contributing percentages which, again, are effectively nothing.

Here are some of the statistically insignificant findings (note all the single digits and zeros):


Heartland Institute.

None of this should come as a surprise, especially to the cigar community. Government is a giant lie personified; it is pure Satanic evil from Hell.

As part of the new cigar regulations which took effect at the beginning of the month, cigars now come with warning labels, such as:

  • Cigar smoking can cause cancers of the mouth and throat, even if you do not inhale.
  • Cigar smoking can cause lung cancer and heart disease.
  • Cigars are not a safe alternative to cigarettes.

Lies, lies, and more lies. Government needs its own “Government Warning” label.

And even this study only looks at health risks (none) and not health benefits. Cigars were prescribed for decades as medical treatment for a variety of illnesses, from asthma to anxiety. Cigar smokers tend to be happier people. Now there’s more reason to be happy.

So it is that my love of cigars is well justified – now by medical science. Also vindicated once more is my atavistic hatred of the dread institution of the state. In coming posts I may explore ways to deconstruct the menace of government. For now, I’m going to enjoy a healthy cigar.


Smoke on that, my friends.

By the way, I was serious:

GOVERNMENT WARNING: Government is a known leading cause of death, destruction, disinformation, theft, hatred, general misery and human suffering. To Hell with it.

World Book Perrin: International Studies


, ,

I’d like to say hello to all of my new visitors and everyone around the globe.

So: Welcome! Welkom! Dobrodošli! Vítejte! Welkom! Tervetuloa! Bienvenue! Willkommen!  Yôkoso! and Sveiki atvykę!

This site is based in the United States. It frequently features themes of Western Civilization. Still, somehow, it has gained an audience around the world. I like to think of it as global madness. In the past four years I’ve had visitors from around 100 countries on six continents (not sure WordPress tracks Antarctica).

The other day I noticed that had the Anglosphere covered:


I suppose NZ took that day off.

Then, later, I dug a little deeper. Here’s a recent comprehensive map:


I think that one covers 91 countries. Not bad although I would love to pick up Iceland. China seems like a good market too. Sadly, I am not read in Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, or Somalia.

Being somewhat Amero-centric, the vast majority of my views come from my own nation. Surprisingly (or not) my next largest concentration is in and around the Caribbean. That would be my cigar friends. The DR and Nica account for more traffic than all of my third largest contingent – Europe.

Here are my top twelve countries:


Hello out there! I have no idea how this site is translated abroad. Google I suppose. I’m just glad to have you.

I offer special greetings to my new preparedness audience. Preppers aim for freedom and that’s my main theme here, if one can overlook (or appreciate) cigar commentary and periodic zaniness.

What else? Through yesterday I had 686 live posts here. 687 now. My most popular category (and those are rather broadly defined) is “News and Notes”. The most frequently used “tag” is “America”. The most popular post for 2016 so far is A Den of Vipers and Thieves. I once knew the most popular post of all time but I have misplaced that…

2016 is already the biggest year yet and by December I look to surpass all previous years’ traffic combined. Thanks for being a part.

Your humble host,



Assassination Attempt on Angela Merkel???


, , , , ,

The mirror reports an armed driver tried to approach Herr Merkel’s motorcade in Prague. Details are few but it seems he never got that close to her. This does not smell like ISIS as they would have been much more aggressive and effective in their attack. Could be a nut or something totally unrelated.

If it were ISIS, that would be most fitting; justice some might call it. I suspect the elite would love if it were a nationalist BREXITer type. Then again, that would be justice too.



It’s high time the traitors started paying for what they’ve done. The criminals don’t come any bigger than the Lady Führer.

Will The U.S. Trade Folly For Madness?


, , , , , , , ,

Playing with fire is dangerous. Imagine a wildfire is burning nearly out of control. Half of the assigned firefighters try to extinguish it while the other half feed it. The given explanation is that while the fire may be dangerous, putting it out for good would be folly. In fact, say the fire experts, the firemen should seek to control and direct the fire to benefit adjacent homeowners. Does that make any sense? No.

The above scenario is fictional but it mirrors American foreign policy in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Paradoxical rumors have circulated over the past few years that Israel is partially behind ISIS, if not giving material support, then at least well-wishing. How could that be? Why would a Jewish nation support a violent and radical Islamic organization on its own back doorsteps? The strange answer and some validity to rumor partly appeared on August 2, 2016.

The Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, a right-leaning think tank in Israel, released a report calling for the maintenance (not the destruction) of ISIS.

Why? The so-called Islamic State “can be a useful tool in undermining” Iran, Hezbollah, Syria and Russia, argues the think tank’s director.

“The continuing existence of IS serves a strategic purpose,” wrote Efraim Inbar in “The Destruction of Islamic State Is a Strategic Mistake,” a paper published on Aug. 2.

By cooperating with Russia to fight the genocidal extremist group, the United States is committing a “strategic folly” that will “enhance the power of the Moscow-Tehran-Damascus axis,” Inbar argued, implying that Russia, Iran and Syria are forming a strategic alliance to dominate the Middle East.

“The West should seek the further weakening of Islamic State, but not its destruction,” he added. “A weak IS is, counterintuitively, preferable to a destroyed IS.”

Our frenemies in black. NBC.

The Israelis say getting rid of ISIS altogether would be folly. Come again!? The existence of ISIS, as it affects the West, isn’t counterintuitive, it’s plain stupid and suicidal. It would be one thing and different if ISIS were confined to Syria and Iraq. They are not. They regularly operate now, with devastating effect, in: Paris, Brussels, Nice, Munich, London, New York, Florida, Mississippi, California, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, and Minnesota.

Still, stupid is as stupid does. The U.S. has been simultaneously feeding ISIS while trying to steer it and at times quell it. Washington bows to special interests who chase power and profits while sacrificing American lives on the home front. In the bargain the government regularly gets to increase surveillance, “security” controls, and to call for gun control and other liberty restrictions. Abroad the government gets to demonize otherwise benign countries like Russia and Iran. One stupid course of action feeds another and so perpetuates the cycle.

These webs are truly mysterious, baffling. A young woman in Mississippi who does the same thing, pledging support to ISIS, is sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. And yes, the court found her mentally ill. We put mentally ill people in jail in America. This suggests our domestic policy is as insane as the foreign.

The American government is run by criminals and idiots. They are more than happy to trade real freedom for false security, peace for war, and folly for madness. If someone produced an accurate Bushite decks of ISIS cards (remember those from with al-CIA-da?), the aces would be people from D.C. These cards are already in play. Stop supporting these maniacs.

The Peddler Steakhouse, Boone


, , , , ,

To me and a few people I know, a properly cooked steak is one of life’s great luxuries. Cooked perfectly and it becomes almost a transcendental experience.

This is a continuation of my haphazard series on better businesses. It’s also a direct follow-up to my story about the great Tweetsie Railroad. Read that one if you haven’t before. As an aside and a testament to my snail-like pace of production, I started both of these articles some three years ago.

Let me tell you a tale. Usually in the fall I crave a mountain getaway. I like cool clean air, free-flowing water, and smaller numbers of people. The mountains feel more like fall that the rest of the South; it’s like the New England experience without the 16 hour drive or the hassle of Logan.

It’s a short drive and even makes a good day trip. There are suitable mountains in Georgia and Tennessee but this story involves those of North Carolina. On a hypothetical late-October day we might start early at Tweetsie. My daughter loves the place just as much as I did when I was her age and younger. As I written, it is exactly the same place today as it was in the 1970s.

After a fun day of train rides and funnel cakes finding a hotel is a must (for an overnight stay). I’ve tried the cabins and B&Bs. They’re great. The old … “family fun” motels I remember from my youth are still there – some of them. Sadly, they haven’t seen much maintenance or cleaning in the interim. For this story I will recommend the Holiday Inn Express right on U.S. 321 in Boone.

The Express is clean and modern and reasonably priced. The rooms feature balconies, fireplaces, and hot-tubs. Best of all it is right across the street from The Peddler Steakhouse of Boone.

peddler-steak-house (1)

There are other Peddlers out there, some of which are related to mine. Boone’s is the best. In fact, I call it the best steakhouse in the world. I haven’t been to them all but the Peddler puts to shame many of fancier variety and higher prices.

The restaurant is cozy. There’s a definite 70s feel in the darkness, the paneling, and the overall ambiance. There’s a little waiting room when you first walk in. Get there early as they are frequently busy. If you have to wait, order a drink and enjoy the good company.


Much of the staff are cute co-eds (Boone being a college town). That never hurts. Everyone is efficient and helpful. Once you’re seated the manager wheels around a wooden cart with the day’s best selection of meats. He offers assistance in ordering, cooking, everything. And I’ve heard him refuse an order because he thought the requested meat wasn’t up to Peddler standards. Phenomenal.

The menu is varied and I have sampled this and that. However, it’s a steakhouse and then and there I go all the way. I suggest the 10 oz. Fillet Mignon. Your steak will be grilled to order over an open fire by expert chefs. I say get it medium rare. I hold this is the best steak in the world, bar none. Forget a knife. Honestly you don’t even need teeth. Every filet I have ever had there has been 100% perfect. The price as of this writing is $34.95, a bargain for a priceless taste.



This picture really does not do justice. The Peddler.

As for sides I usual go with a sweet potato. This is really an afterthought. Nothing can compare, compliment, or detract from a Peddler steak. There’s also a full service salad bar of which you should partake. For $10.95 you can have greens, soups, fresh bread, and even caviar. Just save room for the steak.

The Peddler boasts an impressive wine selection. The one and only bone I have to pick is with the beers offered. They have all the usual American non-beers and a healthy number of real beers. It’s just that they could up the potential steak-pairing darks, bitters, and stouts. I generally have a Newcastle or a Pete’s Wicked Brown. This is a small imperfection, easily overlooked.

The women of my life say the desserts are excellent. I’ve never had one as, like I’ve said, there is nothing suitable to complement these steaks.

Boone is full of great places to eat. There is though only one Peddler. It’s simply the best.

After a perfect meal I like to float back to the hotel and enjoy a good cigar on the balcony. I’ve even witnessed an autumn snow with my smoke. If your now an aficionado, the hot-tub might be your thing. By the way, this scenario would work well in winter and a ski trip.

I don’t recommend many eateries; the Peddler is just in a class by itself. If you’ll excuse me, I have to drive to Boone now. High country perfection calls…

Vote For Freedom


, , , , , , , ,

A friend of mine owns a cigar shop. Okay, several of my friends own cigar shops. However, so far as I know, only one is politically connected. Yesterday his Letter to the Editor appeared in the Augusta (GA) Chronicle. It was half impassioned defense of his livelihood and the premium cigar industry and half pragmatic appeal for Trump votes.

0906121812 - Edited

Regarding the later half, it was perhaps the best argument I have heard for voting for Donald Trump. I have copied Russell Wilder’s letter below (with his implied and assumed permission…). Please give it a read through. I was not swayed to the Trump Train though I support Russell’s libertarian ideals and his exemplary business. (By the way, if you are in Augusta and you need cigars … go see Russell and the boys!)

I don’t participate in popular politics or the Great Quadrennial Black Mass anymore because I am an esteemed member of the media. I have to maintain my neutrality… It was hard to write that while laughing. Seriously though, I have to maintain a free fire zone for all pols to stumble blindly into (don’t even have to bait ’em). I also acknowledge that the Old Republic has ended; I see no need to rearrange the deck chairs.

For those of you still in the system and leaning conservative, I encourage you strongly to consider Mr. Wilder’s sensible arguments. One may substitute “tobacco shop” with any honest field of business. I have some further commentary below but here is the letter:

Russell Wilder, We Must Vote For Trump, Letter to the Editor of the Augusta Chronicle, August 23, 2016:

For those who say they can’t vote for Donald Trump because he is not a real conservative, and they must stand for their conservative principles:

I voted my conscience in 2008 for Bob Barr, and again in 2012 for Libertarian Gary Johnson for president. What did that get me? It got me President Obama.

It got me the State Children’s Health Insurance Program expansion, along with its 40-cent-per-cigar federal tax increase; an increase of $1.67 to a $2.76-per-pound pipe tobacco tax; and a $23.67-per-pound increase in the cigarette tobacco tax.

Then three months later it got me the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009. This act gave the Food and Drug Administration the authority to regulate all tobacco products.

I used to be idealistic about what we can do to change our republic, but I no longer have time to wait and hope people will come to their senses, and become educated and involved in our self-governance.

I am losing my business that I have poured my blood, sweat and tears into. I have invested my hard-earned money, my time and my heart into creating a business that employs three people and serves my community and my customers. My business generates property taxes; sales taxes for the state and my county; federal excise taxes; and thousands of dollars in donations to charities in my community.

Gary Johnson has zero chance to win. He will not win one single Electoral College vote. Hating on Trump and “voting your principles” will elect Hillary Clinton. Is Trump my first choice for president? No! Is he my best option to keep my business viable so all my hard work won’t go to waste? You bet!

Is our political system in need of an overhaul? You bet! Are the two choices we have in November less than desirable? Of course! Is anyone other than these two candidates going to win in November? Absolutely not!

I’m a businessman. I have to deal with what I am given, and make the most of it for the best result I can get. I have to play the hand I am dealt.

Either Trump or Clinton will be elected Nov. 8. I choose the Republican nominee. I’m not completely sure what to expect if Trump wins, but I am completely sure what to expect if Clinton wins – and it won’t be anything positive for business.

When you have a business that means everything to you that is being destroyed by the federal leviathan, come and talk to me about your conservative principles.

If you feel we need to change the political system, as I do, it is too late to make meaningful changes for this election. I can assure my conservative friends that voting for a third party, voting for Clinton or not voting at all in protest won’t change anything. It will give us President Hillary Clinton, who will continue the failed policies of Obama.

Very well said, my friend. I read through some of the on-line comments that followed, as did Russell. A few folks actually grasped the important issues – freedom, mainly. The most of them were contributed I think by a robot. Those opined incredible stupidity; no actual person that dumb could operate a computer. It had to be an anti-freedom robot.

Among the drivel spouted by the evil AI, Russell was:

Accused of killing 500,000 people per year;

Compared to a meth or crack dealer;

Assumed to sell cigarettes; and

Being a “far-left” “loonie”.

If these remarks are not the result of a Satanic computer program, then the former Republic is inhabited by people so retarded as to be unable to operate any type of government let alone grasp individual liberty.

In any event I applaud my friend’s championing of freedom and his business interests. That some will continue to fight the good fight no matter what means there is hope for a later revival. I take comfort in the thought there may be cigars in the new Renaissance.

Possible ISIS Attack in Virginia


, ,

Possible. Possible ISIS attack. It is possible but not certain. Yes, he yelled “Allah Akbar!” Yes, his name is Wasil Faroogui. Yes, he did previously try to join ISIS in Syria. And, yes, he was Allah Akbaring while trying to behead a man. That proves absolutely nothing. Just a mere possibility.


Possible ISIS radical Wasil Farooqui. ABC News.

This happened in Roanoke! If you’re not safe there…

Friends, there is only one solution here: we need to raise taxes and ban guns.
