About a year ago I received a message from a long-time reader who lamented the direction he felt this blog was taking. He told me he liked it better when I was writing about religion instead of politics.
I responded that I am writing about religion. Always have. The scriptures caution us to be ever alert as to how prophecies are being fulfilled, and if there was ever a time when scriptural prophecies are coming to pass, that time is right now. They're flooding in. How, I wonder, should we expect to see God's predictions manifest if not in the spheres of culture and politics? That is where we will see God's prophecies come to pass. That's why I pay attention to what is going on in the culture at large, and that's why I write about what I see here, on a blog in which I discuss my religion.
Some years ago I read an article that made the astonishing claim that the Bible deals with religion only about 29 percent of the time. The other 71 percent is concerned with government. That statistic seemed unlikely to me at first, until, as I immersed myself in the bible, I came to realize that all the ancient prophets spent most of their time railing against rulers and warning the people they should learn to govern themselves and not rely on people who claim authority to rule over them.
I'd venture to guess the Book of Mormon devotes even more space to warning us about government overreach. And, of course, it was written for us, to come forth in our day. So we ought to be paying very close attention to the shenanigans people holding political power are constantly trying to con us with. (And that goes double for those in the shadows who are pulling the strings of the politicians.)
A Blast From The Past
Please indulge me for a moment while I quote from one of my earlier blog posts. In this piece, written five years ago, I was discussing why politics cannot save us, and how, over one hundred years ago, Americans lost control of their own government because they were not paying attention to what their scriptures were warning them against:
Money buys influence. Everybody knows that. But few truly understand the extent to which the government of the people has been completely compromised by filthy lucre. Once you can convince a people that their president is in charge of the country -that he is, in essence, their king- it's a simple matter for those with endless financial resources to completely control the one man at the top. Author Nomi Prins describes how the corruption goes all the way back to the mid 1800's:
"The domestic power game emanated from the railways, an industry cultivated by the country's richest barons." (All The President's Bankers: The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power, pg 2)Later manufacturing giants such as J.P. Morgan, who personally owned 70 percent of the steel industry, and John D. Rockefeller of Standard Oil, colluded with other titans of industry such as International Harvester, General Electric, and others as they came to the collective realization that merely making money wasn't everything. The real power was not in manufacturing goods, but in manufacturing "influence capital;" that is, using money to control political outcomes. These wealthy barons soon shifted from making products to making money. They dropped the manufacturing game and focused on becoming bankers. Really, really powerful bankers. "By the end of the nineteenth century," writes Prins, "the titans of banking were replacing the titans of industry as the beacons of economic supremacy in the United States.
"Eventually, politicians discovered that J.P. Morgan's bank held more money and gold than the entire U.S. Treasury. As the government's need for money became more critical, the men who controlled the money became more powerful. And in 1910, the richest men in America had themselves a brilliant idea: "why don't we just run the whole country ourselves?"
These men combined together in secret to hammer out a plan that in some respects resembled the ancient practice of "Tax Farming," except their modern version was far more nuanced and sophisticated. It was also nearly impossible to detect that private financiers were the ones now pulling the government's strings. The way tax farming worked in ancient times was like this: when a king found he needed vast amounts of money that he did not have, he would hire outsiders who would "farm" money off the king's subjects, shaking the subjects down in return for a cut of the collections.
This year it is estimated that the IR$ will bring in 3.3 TRILLION dollars in collections, and all of it goes directly into the pockets of the families of the six banking titans who originally concocted the scheme. None of your tax money actually goes to the government.
Don't believe me? Look at who endorsed the back of that check you sent to the IRS last year. It says "Pay to any branch of the Federal Reserve Bank in payment for obligations incurred by the U.S. government."
In other words, your hard earned cash is used to pay off the debts owed on money your government has already spent, and it's paid to those wealthy private families. You have been listed as collateral for the government's debt. You are nothing but a crop awaiting the farmer's sickle. (See Mitch Modeleski, The Federal Zone, Chapter 8)
Remember when the federal government "bailed out" the big banks following the crash of 2008? Most Americans whose homes plummeted in value thought that bailout would somehow benefit them, that they would get at least some relief from their rising mortgage payments. Then remember what a shock it was when the bankers took that 700 billion dollars of government money and awarded it all to themselves as performance bonuses?
Giving away all that money to the already rich did not sit well with most Americans, who could not understand why their representatives would act against the people's clear wishes. Well, now you know why. Your representatives are owned. As we learned years ago from the Wizard of Id, "He who owns the gold makes the rules." Our representatives in congress had no choice but to do the bidding of their true masters.
And here's the amazing part: The government did not have seven billion dollars to fork over to those banks. It first had to borrow the money from some of the same bankers they were handing it over to, which meant the bankers received that money twice. First they loaned 7 billion dollars to the U.S. Treasury, then the Treasury handed the money over to the bankers and their friends, and finally they got the money paid back to them that they loaned to the government so the government could give them all that money. These guys are brilliant. Devilishly brilliant.
"At the dawn of the Twentieth Century, the powerful "Big Six" bankers used a major bank panic to help make the case for the establishment of the Federal Reserve...Over the decades, the faces at the helm of America's two poles of power changed, but the aspirations of the unelected financial leaders coalesced with the goals of the elected leaders -occasionally to the benefit of the U.S. population, often to its detriment." (Nomi Prins, All The President's Bankers:The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power, pg 393-394)
It's Going To Get A Whole Lot Worse
What I wrote about above was all put in motion over a hundred years ago, but you're still not supposed to notice how you're being skinned and enslaved. The ruling class is doing all it can to convince you this is just some silly "conspiracy theory" so you won't look into it. But this information is all factual and easily verifiable. And since the Book of Mormon warns us that in our day men would combine together in secret against the people, we would be remiss if we failed to notice when these scriptures are being fulfilled. The easiest way to allow these secret combinations to "get above us" is to allow their minions to ridicule us as "conspiracy theorists" just because we happen to notice that the warnings in Ether Chapter 8 are being manifest before our very eyes.
Today, the super-wealthy descendants who inherited billions from those who first put this plan into effect in 1913 have perfected the formula, and their hope now is not only to rule America, but to completely dominate the planet by the year 2030. Will they succeed? Who knows? But to me that's not the important question. What concerns me right now is the damage they are doing in the process of working toward that goal. No matter what happens from this day forward, you, and everyone you love, will be seriously hurt within the coming months. It's unavoidable at this point. The massively increasing inflation alone (which so far we have had only the tiniest little taste of) will turn out to be more than most of us will be able to endure, especially combined with the whipsaw period of recession/depression that will follow. Many people will die. Those who live through it will suffer serious harm. Sadly, these are tribulations we will not be able to escape.
Many books have been published that lay out the goals of these insidious insiders in their own words, so we are well beyond speculation here. You can also find academic papers full of admissions and confessions by these very criminals that very few regular people have bothered to read.
For the sake of brevity, and for those unaware of the evil that is being planned for you, I'm providing a video I've come across recently that lays it all out inside of an hour. I don't know who this guy is who is presenting this, but he's done a very good job of keeping it concise and factual. Here you'll find, in their own words, admissions and confessions by those who wish to rule over you, how they have accomplished their goals so far, and precisely how, in our lifetime, they intend to tighten the noose completely. Whether they succeed on the timeline they have set, is probably up to us.
For reasons that will soon be apparent, you will not find this video on YouTube. I hope you'll share it with everyone you know:

Notes & Asides
As discussed on this site last October, there's nothing new under the sun when it comes to men combining in secret attempting to enslave the masses to their will. The four-part series you'll find at Book of Mormon Perspectives regarding Mystery Babylon demonstrates that, as the scriptures teach us, Lucifer is and always has been behind conspiracies that have existed among all nations going back to ancient times. The difference is that today, those conspiracists are operating openly, and openly announcing their plans at the same time they are ridiculing and dismissing anyone who dares to repeat what they themselves have said.
These are strange times indeed.
And speaking of: just this morning you will find on the Book of Mormon Perspectives blog a new post proving that the so-called Corona "Virus" is, indeed, a myth. Click Here.
Latter Day Truths Strikes Again
I can't imagine why any young person would want to go on a mission at this time. LDTruths's blog from two days ago reports that out of 588 missionaries now in the MTC, 91 have come down sick with the so-called Coronavirus. All 588, of course, have been vaccinated, which gives the lie to Russell Nelson's claim that the vaccine has been proven "safe and effective." "Safe"? Well, I guess the jury is still out on those 91 unwitting ministers of the gospel, since we don't yet know how badly they've been damaged yet. But "effective"? Well, I should smile. If it was effective, as Nelson assures us, why have these kids succumbed to the illness the vaccine is supposed to be effective in preventing?
By the way, in case you've forgotten, that regarding the punishements to come, the Lord announced that "upon my house shall it begin, and from my house shall it go forth. First among you, who have professed to know my name but have not known me but have blasphemed against me."
That sounds very much to me like it describes the First Presidency of the LDS Church as currently constituted, since they did not consult the Lord before officially encouraging the Saints to take the vaccine. Too bad a bunch of innocent missionaries have to suffer for the sins of the leaders, but I guess that's what comes of trusting in the arm of flesh while ignoring the words of God Himself.
