When Times Get Hard

I have always softened my views by a general philosophy. The purpose has been to appeal to the better side of all of us, to look at the higher view of the nation and the world. That some seem to take that as naive concerns me, because there are few who are more radical than I am.  That I appeal to the more rational side of all of us is an attempt to appeal to those who are not hardened to the realities, because if one is hardened, they do not need to hear from me. They already know what must be done and to who. 


So, this post is a message to the rest. There are no soft sides to what must be done. There are a lot of people who think they are hardened, but I question that, because of the inaction in the face of the destruction of everything the true patriot holds dear. Where were you?  I was there, my family knows I was there, they have dreaded the moment when anyone stood, knowing that it would force me to stand up with them, but nothing came.


Times are about to get hard. I believe that is imminent, so this post is in response to that probability. If I knew when exactly that was to come about I would be doing things differently, but no one knows when it is going to get difficult. I have a daughter in LA, I don't know what to do for her. She is young and does not understand everything about the country and I have left her in a state of normality as long as I have been able, but that is all about to change.


The next economic emergency will affect us all. No one is immune. Your finances are likely to be nationalized, which means that the government and the banks will take everything you own and if you don't believe they have the power to do so, you are misinformed. The people responsible for your destitution will be those you have willingly elected and those with whom you have giving your life savings. Don't look for sympathy here.


What will you do about it? From my observations of the last economic disaster, nothing.


I have tried over the past several years to appeal to the American spirit, the American ideal of liberty, but I have witnessed people much more willing to espouse their own vision of America and the concept of liberty than those willing to band together under one banner and fight back against the outrages that accompany every dictate of the government.


This is not a debating society. If one is not willing to commit their lives and their honor to the restoration of liberty, I have no counsel to offer. For those who get it, I am with you.


I have written often of the Constitution hoping to offer some legal basis for one's opposition to the oppression and 24/7 surveillance of the government, to no avail. But, the Constitution is irrelevant in these times. It was never a guarantee of our liberties, but a basis for revolt against those who did not value the contract. But, we have not revolted. For all of the denigration of the Tea Party, at least they presented themselves. The liberty/Patriot community has done nothing, but complain and offer alternative definitions and couch their vehemence in principles no one understands.


So, when the government unveils its master plan for our money, our assets, our property and drops forever the facade of propriety, I expect the liberty/patriot community to do something, but I am not holding my breath. When each of you identify me as a lone aggressor, I hope you will keep this post in mind. I do not need your help or your assistance to do what I need to do, but you might need mine.

  1. Amen Brother, and thanks for the truth. I have broached this subject in very soft swaddling to my neighbors. Most are in denial, as if denying the existence of something, somehow makes it go away. "But I watch tv! THEY say the economy is getting better!" "The stores seem to have a lot of shoppers! Everybody seems to be spending money!" The only ones who get it are the retired military men. They shake their heads at the wives and give me a knowing nod. One guy, who is 90 but acts 50, said he still has a full set of rifles and plenty of ammo. Let's hope so. My mother told me a lot about growing up in the Depression. My grandparents were wealthy before that liar Roosevelt stole gold and derided everything they ever worked for. They did manage to hold onto the Victorian that proved to be a source of refuge for everyone. I learned firsthand from my mother about theiving bankers, lying government officials, and the value of good neighbors.
    There are people in LA who see what is coming and are trying to prepare to survive in the sprawling city. Encourage your daughter to seek these people out. We already know that the movie stars and Elites will abandon all, jump on the private jet, and flee to safety. They have done it before with earthquakes, riots, and the like.

    1. Mr. Spaniel,
      This retired military man (22 years active duty US Army, infantryman, 3 combat deployments) have been seeing this for a loooong time as well. You and the author of this webpage are spot on. I remember as a very young kid listening to stories about the “Great Depression” from my beloved grandmother and never really understood her message until about 4 years ago.
      My brother loaned me a book titled “The End of the World as we know it” by James Wesley Rawles. When I saw the cover, knowing that my brother is one of those big fans of science fiction or fantasy books I thought it was some crazy, non realistic sci-fi book. However, to my surprise it hit me with potentially real world scenarios and some that I had actually witnessed while deployed, especially when I was in Bosnia. That, coupled with my grandmother’s stories and doing a little more, simple research gave me an epiphany that we are headed in some seriously challenging, economic times. I’ve been prepping since and have done my very best to warn my family and friends about what I and many others know. We are going to have the “Greatest Depression” that modern history has ever experienced.
      After 4 years of prepping, I have learned a lot; I have much of what I need, but not even close to what I want. The rule of 3’s must always be first and foremost. You can't live without air for 3 minutes, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food (these are general terms and thoughts). Lastly, you need a way to defend it should trouble come around. As you can imagine, I have that covered as well.
      Keep your powder dry; keep prepping and most of ALL keep with our Lord, Jesus Christ!

    Feast of Mary, Comfortress of the Afflicted


    Mary, Comfortress of the Afflicted says, "Praise be to Jesus."

    "Today, I come to you as Comfortress of the Afflicted. These days, the afflicted are those persecuted for proclaiming the Truth. Without the efforts of these courageous souls, the world would be plunged into an even greater abyss of sin. You, My dear children, must not regard the erroneous opinions and attacks of those who accept error, as worthy of the slightest consideration. Your response must always be one of prayer and further support of good versus evil."

    "Never remain silent no matter who accuses you of error. Silence is an evil tool which is used by Satan to masquerade as acceptance. Do not try to 'fit in' with those who accept error for any reason. Rather, try to help those in error to see their mistakes and to repent. This takes courage."

    "You must not fall into the trap of trying to be popular. In today's society, that means compromise of Truth. Once you know the Truth - the difference between good and evil - it is your responsibility to support it."

    "Allow Me to be your solace and your comfortable Refuge in this hour of distress which weighs upon the world. Turn to Me as your strength."

  3. Jesus speaks to an Ohio visionary, August 19, 2014


    Jesus says: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

    "I tell you, solemnly, sound moral leadership directs its followers around evil and with sureness of step along the path of good. These days, many are in the position to do so, but fail to lead away from the threats towards salvation. This is spurious leadership - not genuine in My Eyes."

    "If you are responsible for the salvation of souls, make this your priority. Your followers must not be left guessing as to where you stand or where they should stand on moral issues. These are evil times. Moral issues must not be given over to gray areas of decision. Leaders must clearly point the way to good versus evil, leaving no doubt as to the direction that must be taken."

    "I cannot endorse leadership that does not oppose evil. Such as these are responsible for the souls lost as a result of their poor decisions or non-decisions or lack of supporting the Truth."

    "To all leaders, I say, recognize your grave responsibility before Me. You will not be judged by your popularity in the world, but according to your sincere efforts to bring souls to their salvation. You will find any title useless before Me - but your authority will be a scale measuring the number of souls you led to the Truth."

  4. Roger!

    "The Storm" has been building and upon us for some time now.

    When it finally breaks, it will be of Biblical proportions.

    Seek out those who honor the good, the true, and the beautiful. Grapple them to your souls, as with hoops of iron.

    As a dear friend of our group has told us: "steadfastly and resolutely acknowledge Him, take the next right step, and be a sign of hope to those around you."

  5. Every true businessman knows what you're describing, TL---it's the great chasm between conceptualization and implementation. Ideas are plenty important, but it's only their implementation that gets anything done.

    It won't be dedicated Warriors nor Intellectuals who will be decisive in this.. They're important alright--every person is important, that's foundational--but it's gonna come down to farmers, workers, bowlers, NASCAR fans and so on. These are people who know--even without thinking about it--that only implementation counts. It's so basic to them that they wouldn't even understand what the topic is about.

    That's why I for one think it's so critical that they recognize, and are comfortable to admit, that their lives ARE worth it. And anyone who thinks otherwise can line right up with the Collectivists and Statists.

    Won't be long now; you'll see. Good men will be coming out of every nook and cranny around this country. Like locusts but instead of destroying, we'll be creating and building. I'd bet my life on it. Oh, I already did.

    "Rightful Liberty is unobstructed action according to our will..." Will it, do it, defend it and then claim the prize earned---a free life on Earth, however you wish it to be.

    "... within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others." Do you wish to obstruct someone else from the same? Then no life on Earth for you, you filthy maggot.

    None of this is rocket science. The persuasion stage is over; now it's implementation.

  6. We are out here, TL, waiting

  7. I'm with you my friend. I have, as you, been speaking forth the warning for years. And I have also wondered where are those who will go to direct action with me.

    As with you, I have seriously contemplated going active, alone. Yet, as you have not, neither have I. Because we both know that the value of an asset is in how it is spent. And to spend it casually, without hope of a greater gain, is waste. And I hate waste, as you also do. Thus we wait, for the moment of value.

    Now, it will not be long.

    And the actions of individuals who dare, will call forth a turn of events:
    As the sting of an insect turns even the head of the angry bull, so shall we be. And behind us, a whole swarm, which we may never see. The tip of the spear is ever alone, and most alone as it flies through the darkness towards its target.
    May our aim be ever true, and may our will stand firm to the end.

    The inevitable comes.

    Only after it's passing, might liberty be restored.

    Only after the great darkness
    blinds the multitude,
    and those who claimed to be strong
    have fled.

    Only after it's passing, might liberty be restored.

    And the burying of so many fallen,
    who rose up as an act of will;
    but never receive guidance;
    where to spend themselves.

    Only after it's passing, might liberty be restored.

    The hungry, like a sea; and the sick, like a swamp.
    And no one to tend them, nor record their passing.
    Nor sufficient hands even to give them dignified rest.
    Afterward.

    Only after it's passing, might liberty be restored.

  8. Patriot’s Faith Will Triumph Yet

    For reasons “unexplainable”,
    But in wise eyes quite blamable,
    Our currents lives, to many, grow oppressive (1)

    Each day’s harsh news, and bleak demands,
    To those, who see, reflect a plan
    Pursued by evil powers quite obsessive (2)

    To kill Columbia (3), to kill our faith,
    To mock our freedoms, once kept safe,
    These enemies of love and life conspire.

    Their schemes, they think, cannot be known,
    But Heaven has ways and means not shown (4)
    To those who bend the knee to worship evil.

    When we arise from our insensate state,
    With all of Liberty’s dreams at stake,
    Our prayers to Heaven shall not go unanswered.

    We shall bend our knees to Our Fathers’ God,
    Recalling those harsh paths they trod,
    That we, their heirs, might live lives rich in freedom (5).

    Then, in their memory, with their faith,
    We’ll live with honor, ‘til honor’s kept safe,
    And once again, the Liberty Bell is pealing!

    Through every trial, every fear,
    God’s unseen angels hover near (6),
    Their sacred mission is our preservation.

    So trusting in the Holy One
    We pray as taught by God’s Own Son (7)
    And once more raise our eyes to Heaven believing!

    Footnotes:

    1. Suicide is now the most prevalent form of (a) “accidental” death and (b) troop fatalities.
    2. Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
    3. New Latin for America, first used about 1775.
    4. Isaiah 40:26: “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.”
    5. “God of Our Father’s” is our National Hymn, composed in 1876 with lyrics of Daniel C. Roberts and melody by George W. Warrant to commemorate the American Centennial. Verse four is often overlooked: “Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way, Lead us from night to never ending day; Fill all our lives with love and grace divine, And glory, laud, and praise be ever Thine.”
    6. Psalm 91:11: For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”
    7. Matthew 6:9-13

  9. The Patriots you seek are, all, waiting for someone, else, to do something. Harming cops and politicians will solve nothing. "Reeducating" politicians' owners may change things.

  10. if you are Christian, patriotic and prepared you are their enemy. Your metal will be tested, i pray His strength upon you and ultimate victory in Christ's name. Like Job, always keep the faith.

  12. The evening news and how they keep talking about how good things are.Makes me ill.
    Just drive around and look at all the empty commercial buildings. Companies are going broke like crazy. Our printing money and borrowing is what has kept our country afloat. Its a stack of cards waiting to fall down.
    Russia and China seem to be putting their own Gold backed money together.When the dollar stops being the standard,And we can't print more funny money.We will have an economic collapse. No wonder Putin laughs so much.
    I also wonder about our so called leaders thinking.This TPP deal will just mean that large corporations will have more countries with cheap labor to use.Makes a person wonder how many jobs will be lost from another loser trade deal made by Washington. More nails in the coffin.Geez,How out of touch are these people.
    God help us all. The folks in Washington sure ain't.

  13. There are more of us than you can imagine. We wait because once we move, there is no turning back. Once they make us turn into exactly what they fear the most will they only understand. Every one of them will be held to account for MAKING us...for taking from us everything we hold dear. They had better find God and pray to Him for mercy for they will receive none from me.
