Francis Scott Key penned the words to the song “The Star-Spangled Banner” in the 1800s that would go on to become the “National Anthem” of the United States, and it ends with the words:

The land of the free, and the home of the brave.

I am not sure these words have ever been a true description of life in the United States, but today, here in 2022, those words should read:

The land of the slaves, and the home of the cowards.

I never thought I would live to see the day where most Americans would willingly choose slavery over freedom, and then when their choices did not work out the way they thought, rather than own up to their mistake in making the wrong choice, blame the government instead, all the while raising their voices to claim “I’m a victim!” believing that somehow they are entitled to certain things from their slave masters.

But that characterizes the United States of America today.

Earlier this week I published an article on the next big vaccine push that is being planned for the “MonkeyPox” fear campaign, and speculating about who would actually agree to get a monkeypox vaccine, I wrote:

Certainly not the anti-vaxxers, and certainly not those who were foolish enough to get the COVID shots, were injured by them, and then woke up to the fact that they were lied to and hence suffered tremendously.

A reader named Tina Thompson didn’t like what I wrote and made the following comment:

Kindneaa (sic) and Compassion are free

not those who were foolish enough to get the COVID shots

Foolish. Don’t you think unfortunate would be a kinder word. The vaccinated are NOT foolish, they are victims! You people and the nasty old man in the chair, need to learn some compassion and kindness.

It is a fact, that those who are intelligent are more easily lead into a hypnotic state and that is what the media have done with their terror campaign. i DON’T THINK THEY NEED THE ADDED INJURY OF BEING VERBALLY MALIGNED, SO SHOW SOME HEART, THEY ARE VICTIMS FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!

So according to Tina, those who foolishly took a COVID-19 shot and suffered for it are not responsible for their actions. They are victims, and it is the fault of the media and the government lies.

Last October, several readers brought to my attention the tragic story of a young mother who took one of the COVID shots and then ended up dying, leaving her small children behind.

It was a tragic, but typical story of the kind we have covered hundreds of times now since the COVID-19 shots were given emergency use authorization back in December of 2020.

But the reason this story gained so much traction and actually made it even into some corporate news sites, is because the obituary was written in such a way to completely blame the COVID-19 shot, and to politicize what happened.

Here is what was written in the obituary of this young mother who was in her 30s:

[The mother’s] greatest passion was to be the best mother possible for [her two children.] Nothing would stand in her way to be present in their lives.

During the last weeks of her life, however, the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates. Local and state governments were determined to strip away her right to consult her wisdom and enjoy her freedom.

She had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine, knowing she was in good health and of a young age and thus not at risk for serious illness. In her mind, the known and unknown risks of the unproven vaccine were more of a threat.

But, slowly, day by day, her freedom to choose was stripped away. Her passion to be actively involved in her children’s education—which included being a Room Mom—was, once again, blocked by government mandate.

Ultimately, those who closed doors and separated mothers from their children prevailed. It cost [this mom] her life.

I do not mean to be disrespectful at all to this family’s tragic loss, and there are certainly enough criminals to be tried and executed for these horrible crimes in allowing these shots to be made available to the public.

But the government did not cost this woman her life.

The text here makes it very clear that this woman knew the risks, knew that she did not need this shot, but chose to get it anyway, because she wanted to keep using the educational system to educate her children.

THAT choice cost her her life, and now her family has suffered also as a result of that choice.

Did she have other choices that she could have made to prevent this from happening?

Yes, she did. She could have pulled her children out of the Satanic school system mandating these shots, and made the choice not to participate.

It may have been the more difficult choice, it may have caused her to be ostracized and criticized by those around her, including maybe some of her own family members. It may have caused her a lot of problems and inconveniences to walk away from the world system that provides education, medical care, employment and many other “benefits.” It may have even completely changed her life, and left her in poverty.

But ultimately it was her choice, and she rolled the dice and LOST, because she valued the lifestyle that her slave masters were offering her more than refusing the shot.

You ALWAYS have a choice!

Even if things get worse and the military or law enforcement begins going door to door by gun point to force people to get vaccines, you still would have a choice: You would have the choice to die free, or live as a slave.

And if you no longer fear physical death, this is an easy choice to make.

But as we can see with this tragic story, and many thousands of others like her, people are choosing to live as slaves by complying, and then many of them end up dying anyway. They don’t take responsibility for their actions, but always play the “victim” card and blame others instead.

True Freedom Comes at a Cost – It is not “Free”

As I have previously written in other articles over the past many months, Americans today are so far removed from any kind of real hardship, where we would have to go back to the Great Depression and then WWII back in the 1930s and 1940s to define “real hardship.”

Most Americans living today just take everything they enjoy for granted, and carry the misguided faith that these are all things they are entitled to, even if they did nothing to work for or earn them.

This is, for sure, the age of the “entitlement” crybaby generation. America has become a consumer economy that does not produce anywhere near the amount of goods we used to as a nation, particularly just after WWII. Over the years the majority of the goods we purchase have been manufactured overseas with cheap labor, especially in China.

We have come to equate “freedom” with economic prosperity, and for many years now that “economic prosperity” has been achieved mostly by the sweat and labor of non-Americans outside the U.S.

What little we produce ourselves is controlled by just a handful of companies, and these companies have dominated the world economic system for many years now, enslaving other cultures and their people to do the actual work to support our lifestyle here in the U.S., often through brute military force or covert operations by our “intelligence” agencies.

So in reality, the only truly “free” people in America are the Wall Street Billionaires and Bankers at the top, and the little bit of prosperity that they allowed to “trickle down” to the rest of the population to give the illusion that “freedom” and “prosperity” was the American way of life.

“Freedom” is an illusion, because at the end of the day, even pre-COVID, the general population has always only had very few actual choices because we are all dependent on “the system,” which the Globalists control.

But now payday has come for an economy that is built on selfishness and debt, and the Globalists have made their move to significantly reduce the world’s population in order to cut their losses and try to hang on to their power, not because of a lack of natural resources, but because we have consumed way more than we have produced, and the economic fallout is imminent, and inevitable.

And the future is very dark, IF we keep blaming the Globalists and do not take responsibility for our own actions, and our own choices, to willingly serve our slave masters.

Faith in God has been Replaced with Faith in the Pharmaceutical Cult

How to live in enemy territory and take advantage of the system of slavery while not being dependent upon it, has been documented within the ancient writings called “the Scriptures” or “the Bible” for thousands of years now.

It begins with understanding our legal standing in the universe that is ruled by a just and holy God. And in that legal system, we are all guilty of breaking God’s laws and commandments.

If we recognize this fact, then there is a way out, through the forgiveness of our crimes (sins) by the blood sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross over 2000 years ago.

That’s the only way to true “freedom,” and it came at great cost, but one that we did not pay, because we had no legal standing to do so. Only Jesus, the only perfect human being to walk the earth, could pay this penalty to release the slaves. He proved his authority to release the slaves, by walking out of the tomb 3 days later, ultimately defeating physical death, and the fear of dying.

For those who do not want to accept the fact that they are guilty in God’s judicial system, they remain in slavery to the world system, always blaming the system for all their problems, while claiming to be a “victim.”

As a nation, America has lost its way, primarily through the idolatrous pharmaceutical industry which is based on the Darwinian evolutionary view of life, which completely excludes God.

The very first commandment that God gave, and is the first one in the “Ten Commandments,” is:

You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:3-6)

The Greek word “pharmakeia” and its cognates, from which the English words “pharmacy, pharmaceutical, etc.” all came from, is found in the New Testament portion of the Bible, but is always translated as “sorcery,” “witchcraft,” etc.

These products only deal with the physical body, and do not treat the person’s soul or spirit.

Everybody’s body is in the process of growing older, where it will someday break down and “die,” ceasing to function.

But our soul and our spirit live on after the death of the physical body, and true healing and deliverance from fear and slavery, are only found in God, not pharmaceutical products.

Those who put their faith in medical doctors and professionals, and the corrupt system they work in, are idolaters, because only God can truly supply “health” to us.

Prayer and Fasting is Needed, Not Celebrating “Freedom”

If you are celebrating America’s “freedom” this July 4th, you are celebrating a myth, because there is no freedom in our nation, apart from the costly freedom from our sins that Jesus Christ provided for us, by his blood sacrifice and physical death on the cross.

And that “freedom” is available to anyone, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, religion, or any other way of classifying human beings.

Most of us Americans are idolaters, because we have trusted the system, especially the medical system, to take care of us all these years, and now that idolatrous trust is paying back its dividends to the idolaters.

The only way forward is to stop blaming anyone else but ourselves, and make the necessary changes in our own life to start trusting in God instead, and repent of our former faith in the system.

God has given us his Word that he will save us from our slavery, and we need to now start taking him at his Word, and surrendering our lives to him.

This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world.

This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. (1 John 5:3-5)

Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me–those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches?

No man can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for him–the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough–that he should live on forever and not see decay.

For all can see that wise men die; the foolish and the senseless alike perish and leave their wealth to others.

Their tombs will remain their houses forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had named lands after themselves.

But man, despite his riches, does not endure; he is like the beasts that perish. This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings.

Like sheep they are destined for the grave, and death will feed on them. The upright will rule over them in the morning; their forms will decay in the grave, far from their princely mansions.

But God will redeem my life from the grave; he will surely take me to himself.

Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him.

Though while he lived he counted himself blessed– and men praise you when you prosper–he will join the generation of his fathers, who will never see the light of life. A man who has riches without understanding is like the beasts that perish. (Psalms 49:5-20)

  1. My blog post for June 23 2020: The Free often Fight alone! That is called Courage! – ONE

    The Free often Fight alone! That is called Courage! – ONE

    Do you know what it is called when ONE lacks Courage? A Coward. Freedom is for the Courageous! – ONE

    No Courage! Americans lack the courage to be FREE.

    They bend over for any old tired tyrant in a suit that enriches themselves at the people’s expense and continue to give their consent through their vote against themselves, even as the cat is completely out of the bag and scratching your children’s eyes out.

    Tough talk sure, No courage. FREEDOM requires COURAGE! Americans don’t have it. Sad.

    No courage from the POLICE!

    It’s just easier to beat up individuals trying to get by the best they can for petty crimes while ignoring the rich and powerful who do harm on a planetary scale that create the illusion of artificial lack that leads to criminality on a smaller scale. The police focus on the petty offenders rather than arresting the upper crust which would do more good. Force over compassion is their Achilles heal. which is both myopic and short sighted. No Courage!

    The Police ignore the large scale criminality of the leadership class. such as presidential foundations that is an institution for illegal bribes from big business and leaders of other countries. Crimes! No Courage.

    When the citizens, the Police took an oath to serve, The very people their kids go to school with and play baseball or soccer with needs them most? No courage.

    Then when the people protest The Police pump their well armored chest out and have disdain for those they are paid to serve. Yes, even the criminals the Police arrest are who they serve, ? You work for THEM, not the admins of the government, our dullard corrupt employees who never solve problems, who only create problems then monetize or weaponize for themselves and their friends (Crimes). No courage!

    The Police know of the history of agent provocateurs to quell dissent in this country and the world and is often financed by government puppet masters. The Police? sworn Agents of the constitution? No Courage!

    Law Enforcement has the backing of the law/constitution to arrest these felons, these traitors, who are as we speak using fake science and fake news to destroy our country in an accelerated way, they just don’t have the courage to stop it. Police DO have the authority! Just No Courage!

    We have done the politicians a disservice. They are dullards that don’t really have any talents but loads of ambition.and the unique ability to put on a business suit that declares “I wont do any heavy lifting, but you will for no money.”

    They have mistaken greedy and selfish ambition for talent, and Americans do not have the courage to remind them they are but dull admins, our employees not kings or queens. JUST bureaucrats.

    “Where oh where to put useless entitled self deluded criminal politicians?” who have cultivated ambition within themselves over cultivating an actual skill or talent? Government was the answer.! Put them all in Washington DC where they would do the least amount of harm. Isolate the a$$ clowns from the rest of the hard working country.

    Americans lacked the courage for tough love and the corporate welfare disease spreads. A generation of Wall Street parasitic welfare recipients on the dole. Like Heroin addicts, they can never have enough and will happily take all for themselves. All because Americans lack the courage to say a resounding “NO!” No Courage!.

    No Courage! I mean the police charge a criminal, then put them in jail and a sentence is served if found guilty by due process. simple. Congress takes months, years with piles of cash and armies of lawyers in hearings after hearing and cannot even determine if a crime has even been committed.??? Then they all re investigate over and over the same charges only for the investigation to fizzle and nothing happens. Dullards. Somehow when the go in office they have no money, when they come out they are rich! No Courage!

    No courage or honor from the military, who all took the same oaths the police took to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC. Hello! Domestic! No Honor! no Courage!

    No courage! No it is just so much easier to invade the weak with your sophisticated weapons our tax dollars are spent on then prance around beating your chest calling yourselves heroes rather than really doing what is needed, doing right by the American people when you are needed most. No Courage from the Military.

    To have FREEDOM ONE must have Courage! No Courage in America! Americans talk the tough guy talk, but don’t walk the walk. No Courage!

    No courage from the healthcare doctors and scientists that know and have known for years that the healthcare industry treats symptoms for profits and is NOT the healing arts it takes the hippocratic oath for. Not even close. No courage!

    No Courage from those who know specialization in healthcare, while profitable, does not take the holistic (Whole Body) approach the body needs as the body is a part of the whole and what ONE does to ONE part of the body, effects the others. No Courage.

    No courage by the scientists that know pharma and toxins, and 5G electromagnetic waves diminish the immune system that is the most powerful system for healthcare and they stand by and do and say nothing. No courage.

    “Freedom requires Courage!” – ONE

    If you did not know that, you just heard it here.

    No courage from citizens who let others do their thinking for them.and will follows rules that violate critical thinking, common sense. Those Who identify with Dempublicans or Republocrats when the results are always the same.

    Those who do not realize that there is but ONE party, and they ain’t in it. No Courage. These are the worst sort of cowards. Cowards who consent in fear.

    No courage from the silent whistle blowers that never come forward and remain in the comfort of their anonymity while so many others put it all on the line. No courage.

    No Courage from the Artists who no longer speak truth to power as they did in the past, that created an energy to lead the charge that inspired others. No courage from the artists who have allowed Corporate Welfare entitleds to run their arts organizations into the ground again and again. Stifling their revolutionary/innovative voices. Shame. No Courage!

    Americans have no courage as they allow ANY old fear monger take their constitutionally protected civil and human rights away without a fight or so much as a whimper. No courage!

    The Free often Fight alone! That is called Courage! – ONE
