    There is no such thing as a "good" excuse. The excuses for the politicians and their errors are exceedingly poor! The political leaders on all sides should have been hunted down and thrown in prison for the balance of their lives.

  2. WJack97224 says:

    Politics is violence no matter the make, model or flavor; political government is the bane of humanity; it is not Christian and yet people persist in voting. Go figure. The hate mongering, commie/socialist politicians, mostly Democrats, demonstrate neither love of God nor love of their neighbors (Matthew 22:37-40). Politicians are sociopaths and in some cases they are psychopaths.

    Politics is a false god. When people worship false-god-politics, they get disasters of wars, recessions, inflation (theft) and taxation (theft), i.e. they get mass murders, economic ruin, theft of wages, debt slavery, welfare “statism” based on looting A to satisfy B and extortion. Revelation teaches us that the troika of evil, that wicked consort of politics, commerce and “false religion,” will be destroyed. We would be wise to terminate/abandon political government.

    Read Lysander Spooner's No Treason No. 6, The Constitution of No Authority. And then check out The No State Project by Marc Stevens on YouTube where he asks the question, What factual evidence do you, judge, prosecutor, politician, IRS agent or anyone, have that the manmade constitution and law apply to me just because I am physically present in some state such as the commie/socialist, Democrat dictatorship corruptifornia? It doesn't exist and never has else we would be stinkin' slaves on the plantation state run by masters/politicians and their overseers/judges/ enforcers in the "land of the free and home of the brave." Why weren’t the Spooner and Stevens points taught in government schools? Does anyone not see the conflict of interest? Does anyone not see the prejudice? How can educators “bite the hand that feeds them?” How diabolically ironic is it that teachers cannot teach the truth about the utter wickedness of political government? BTW, factual evidence would come in the form of a sworn affidavit of truth stating what, when, where, why, how and by whom one was made subject to the jurisdiction thereof. It was never brought up in any school I attended. I have never heard any MSM commentator produce the aforementioned “factual evidence.” I have asked 6 judges in their courtrooms the Marc Stevens/Lysander Spooner Question and on record to provide the aforementioned factual evidence and not one of those 6 “judges” could produce factual evidence thus failing to provide proof of jurisdiction and subsequently effected fraud upon me.

    I recommend Ted R. Weiland’s books:
    Bible Law vs. The United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective
    Law & Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant

    If Christian Americans ever expect God to fulfill his half of 2 Chronicles 7:14, they must first repent of their national idolatry their love affair with the humanistic, pluralistic, polytheistic, and antichristian United States Constitution.

    I also recommend the Jehovah Witness website publications:

    The hate speaking, commie/socialist, Democrat politicians, SJWs, snowflakes and MSM are clearly unethical, immoral. They play the emotions game but most people know that the first casualties of emotion are reason/logic and morality.

    Take a look at how Milton Friedman explains to Phil Donahue the fallacy of commie/socialism. This video should be viewed by all and then asked why they are voting for any politician that is commie/socialist.

    “Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” – Milton Friedman

    But since God gave us free will, freedom to choose, then those who argue against free markets are really deniers of Jehovah God, i.e. they are Satan’s acolytes!

    Friedman was a monetarist, i.e. he believed in inflation and thus refuted his own observation. Inflation is theft orchestrated by politicians with the willing assistance of the central bankers

    The time has come,' the Walrus said,
    To talk of many things:
    Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
    Of cabbages — and kings —
    And why the sea is boiling hot —
    And whether pigs have wings.' (remember The Walrus and The Carpenter?)

    As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man —
    There are only four things certain since Social Progress began —
    That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
    And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wobbling back to the Fire —
    And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
    When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
    As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
    The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return! – Kipling, The Gods of The Copybook Headings

    And I am two and twenty and Oh ‘tis true, ‘tis true.(remember the poem?)

    "The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods." ~ H.L. Mencken

    Franz Oppenheimer identified the two basic means by which people can acquire wealth in the world: [1] the “economic means,” and [2] the “political means.” The “economic means” consists of relationships in which individuals voluntarily engage in transactions for the exchange of goods and services. The “political means” involve the forced taking of wealth belonging to one person and bestowing it upon another.

    And lo' those many years ago the colonists thought they had won their freedoms and preserved them for the future generations. Little did they know. Or did they know they were condemning us to live as slaves on the plantation state?

  3. Mats Hagglund says:

    The Battle of the Frontiers, fought at the outset of World War I, doesn’t have the same historical notoriety as Verdun or Somme, but it saw in one day more French soldiers die than in any other day in history. In 22 August 1914, 27,000 French soldiers died in less than 24 hours. It remains France’s highest ever death toll in a single day, despite being followed by four years of brutal and bloody conflict. Jean-Michel Steg, a historian who has written extensively on this military catastrophe – which nevertheless stopped the German “Schlieffen Plan” in its tracks – says he is as “haunted” by the fateful date as he is perplexed as to why it has slipped from the national consciousness.

    What exactly happened on August 22, 1914?

    Jean-Michel Steg: "The deadliest months of the war were the first ones, between August and October, 1914. There are many reasons for this. Firstly, an incredible number of soldiers were mobilized at the same time. Hundreds of thousands of troops from both sides were exposed to death that day. France had five armies positioned from east to west, from Alsace and Lorraine to the Belgian border. For different reasons, all of these armies fought on that same day as part of 15 different assaults, with no coordination between them.

    In each case, the French lost a lot of ground and left many of their wounded behind because they were not adequately trained in defensive warfare and because their artillery was badly exploited. There were many painful lessons to be learned in static warfare that still had to be learned. Sadly, this inexperience would cost many lives. The army also had a class of officers which, while being extremely courageous, were willing to sacrifice their lives – and those of their men – rather than withdraw strategically, as they should have done."

    F24: The day’s fighting at the Belgian village of Rossignol stands out…

    J-M S: "A division of colonial infantry – made up mostly of men from Brittany and southern France, not of colonial troops – found itself in dire straits. Its commander, General Raffenel, had gone mad. He went off into the battle on his own and was soon killed. His subordinates didn’t know what to do and the men of the division, without orders, stayed where they were and were annihilated as they fought the German encirclement. It was a total disaster. Up to 7,000 men were killed in that small zone, and many more killed at Charleroi further north. "

    Who bears the ultimate responsibility for this carnage?

    J-M S: "Tactically, the Germans had the upper hand. Both sides were engaged in chaotic face-to-face fighting. And while the credo of the French army was to attack, the Germans were quickly able to put up strong defensive positions. They would sit tight, observe the French dispositions and use their artillery to devastating effect, forcing the French to manoeuvre rapidly under fire. The French army of the time also had a very rigid and strict hierarchy. Nothing could be done without sending runners for orders and this took a long time. The German army had a less centralised command structure, and junior officers were informed of battle plans and were given more autonomy to use their own initiative. Individual German units could therefore manoeuvre more quickly, giving them the distinct upper hand."
