The Restoration Posts

Feeling Powerless?

August 2, 2020 • jdonahue

This is in reply the post on Twitter about one man, Trump, not being able to save you from the takeover that’s happening.

Feeling powerless? In a way, you are, but more on that in a minute. The idea that the good ol’ U.S.A. can be preserved in its 50 state glory is questionable, at best. Think about it, the homogenized culture, media and strong federal government is what brought this problem, how and why would they fix it?  Do you really suppose the whacky left areas can be changed? I like to cut slack to leftists who never learned how to think, only what to think. Some of those might be reached with the truth, but they’re not holding power in the blue zones.

Politically, the physical resistance has already begun. A number of people are refusing masks, shutdown orders, and they’re going about their business as usual. That’s a good sign. People need to make a distinction between outright armed secession and de-facto secession. What are other steps of resistance that could be taken? What would happen if a lot of people used alternate currency? That’s interesting. Home schooling is a huge form of defiance. One could say that while living in the occupied territory created by Lincoln, the most significant resistance done to date has been the brave home schooling pioneers, back when home school wasn’t cool. I’m talking about my mother in law, not myself.

Reason with me for a minute. Conservative effort to dominate the Supreme Court has proven ineffective. The blue areas will literally let their cities burn before allowing reform. Those same ares are fiscally irresponsible. The national debt is headed toward 30 trillion dollars, not counting benefits promises. The Republican party is timid at best, traitors seems more appropriate. Do you really think you can regain control of the entire country? Those blue people hate your guts, and literally want you dead. Even if you did, it would be occupied territory, and observations of fourth generation warfare show that you can’t occupy in a practical way for a length of time.

I suggest continuing the resistance in the more red areas, and whatever the conflict comes to, making a point to secure those places before trying to keep the whole thing. Is that possible? Well, about that powerlessness: First, if you still think we came about without a design, from rain hitting rocks a bazillion years ago, you can skip the rest, because you’re woefully uninformed. For the rest, I say take a look at American history. We had problems from the inception, but the last straw was in the late 1950’s, early 1960’s. We went from a much cleaner society to public sex at Woodstock in ten years’ time. Teen pregnancy skyrocketed. Drug use became normal. Our currency started the road to fiat. We fought a war run by politicians, who called it a police action. No fault divorce became the legal norm, and families disintegrated. All this is no exaggeration.

Here’s the main point of all this: You are powerless against a very intelligent enemy if you don’t have help of greater ability. It looks to me like Christ left us in the early 1960’s, and that’s the help we need. I mean politically, not just morally. We need to look at what the last straw was. Jesus said that it would be better to have a millstone tied about your neck and be cast into the sea, if you offend children that believe in Him. We made it official, by the federal decree, that children be taught there is no God. I think that was the last straw.

So now what? I say we need a covenant with God. “Lord, we will not teach Darwin’s crude lie, we will make pornography illegal, we will eliminate no fault divorce, (as examples) if you will help us have an area to raise our families in peace and prosperity.” The problem of course is secret sin. Many on the right will agree, but sneak off to their vices in private. Listen now, I tell you the most important secession of all is to separate yourself from the wickedness around us, and return to God on His terms, not your own.

Without that public and private change, I’m skeptical of a good political outcome. Very skeptical.

Wrong Think?

July 17, 2021 • jdonahue

An Interesting post by Vox Day: wherein he’s telling people to be careful of what they say and think, because spoken words can have more negative and lasting effects than we realize.

For years now, I’ve had a practice I call ‘mind time’ that is easier said than done; It’s this: while doing mundane or rote tasks, concentrate on serious topics, and work my way mentally through them. A friend sent me a supplement, CoEnzyme Q10, and while I can’t speak for its long term effects, I can say it makes said mind time easier, with good results.

CoEnzyme Q10

Yesterday, while adhering transfer paper to vinyl letters, I started thinking about the right-left divide. Thoughts like “Man, if the thing blows wide open, they’re going to be in for a shock in the ferocity of the reaction. All we wanted was be left alone, to live decent lives, but no, they wouldn’t have it.”

I’ve had that thought for years, but you know what? IT’S WRONG THINKING. The truth is, evil has always sought to undermine good; the idea of being left alone is very unrealistic. So a better thought is: THEY”RE GOING TO WISH I WOULD LEAVE THEM ALONE.

 

Messages on Cards

June 15, 2021 • jdonahue

The internet is paradoxical. On the one hand, I’ve gotten so much information that I wouldn’t get from legacy news sources. On the other hand, I have reason to believe that I don’t reach as many people as I think I am, or would like to online. Real life messages reach everyone. Examples are signs, spoken words, and printed material.

I had an idea for some two sided business cards. Here’s a vector file of each side:

Message_1b2Message_2b2Here are the same files as PDF:

Message_1b2_pdf

Message_2b2_pdf

Both file types are 1/8 inch over sized, which is the industry standard. You’re free to use them for personal or commercial use.

If you saw my previous post at Social Galactic, you know I was trying to act on an offer of 1000 free double sided cards, save shipping. They require a PDF file, but mine kept getting rejected for wrong size. I finally got that worked out; the problem was with the online file converter I was using.

With the delays, I wasn’t sure they would arrive by this weekend, and I have events then. So I went to a local printer. $65 + tax for 500, but they were done in one day, with no shipping delay. Here’s what they look like:message cards1

 

The Plan?

April 14, 2021 • jdonahue

I have a number of thoughts regarding “the plan” that might involve President Trump, Q, Sidney Powell, Mike Lindell, General Flynn, etc, I have long held that the physical manifestation of our greatest enemy is the U.S. government. Even if a plan to reverse the stolen 2020 election is successful, it will probably result in moving the timeline back 20 years, with a repeat on the horizon. Nonetheless, I’m pragmatic enough to understand “the enemy of my enemy”, and want a large force of more experienced personnel involved in the conflict.

My optimism lies in this reasoning: Even if the plan is nonexistent at this point, individual states are asserting their own authority; I call it “Secession In Deeds”. I see three possible explanations for ‘the plan’. First, that there never was a plan. Second, that there was a plan, but it was thwarted. Third, that there still is a plan, but the challenge is enormous and time consuming.

 Now the point of this post: Explanation 3b. Several weeks ago General Flynn made an appeal for patriots to be in serious prayer. At the time I thought well, maybe an indicator that we lost, and “you guys are on your own, so yer gonna need a lot of prayer”. However, I’ve since had a different thought. Suppose that the Trump administration and the above mentioned people are civ-nat, and look at the situation more through a political lens than a spiritual lens. Now suppose that they have uncovered a combined political and spiritual operation much larger and embedded that assumed.

I’m not unaware of what has been revealed about all the pedos, and their vile behavior, along with the forced societal degradation around us. Of course that’s Satanic. What I’m talking about is the extent of how this dark force has infiltrated and placed its people in so many parts of society. Gangs, school boards, local government, media, all sorts of places from the county to the federal level. I was aware of some of it 35 years ago, but haven’t spoken about it because I figured people wouldn’t believe me, and I would be discredited. I’m not talking about people who have been taught all their lives what to think and not how to think. I’m talking about people who are consciously Satanic, but don’t show obvious signs.

They have a very intense doctrine of secrecy, so there are more of them than you realize. Also, another note, somewhat related. The ultimate goal of all the surveillance apparatus is so that Satan can be like God as expressed in Proverbs chapter 15: The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good”. He wants to know the activities of the dissenters.

‘Out There’ Conspiracy Theory.

March 21, 2021 • jdonahue

I’m writing this off the cuff, haven’t taken time to contemplate the plausibility of it. You might find it interesting, and hey, it’s the 2020s, so bizarre things happen.

Anyway, there appears to be a ballot recount in Arizona.

Ariz. State Senate to order hand recount of 2.1M ballots cast in 2020

Go back to the 1800s, after Jesse James was shot for reward money. His brother Frank got concerned for his own well being, and turned himself in to the authorities. The James brothers had substantial support among the people of Missouri. Frank was also wanted in neighboring Kansas, wher his reception would be far less cordial if he went there. As it turned out, he never did. The different counties in Missouri kept bringing charges against him. He was moved from one proceeding to another, and never did leave.

Frank_James_2

So here’s the idea: I just heard Juan O Savin again today. I was kind of tired, so I need to listen to it again, to be sure of all of what he was said. What I do recall him saying was that all legal possibilities for countering the election fraud of 2020 have to be exhausted before it can be tackled by the military. I was already aware of that, and take these kind of things with a wheelbarrow load of salt; but think about it.

What if the left can keep bringing up a string of legal inquiries into the fraud, and stall the military long enough for something to happen. Like millions of illegal immigrants, AKA Democrat voters. I’m not saying that I believe the military will act; in fact, it looks a lot like a perpetual stall tactic in the form of “trust the plan”. Nor do I suppose the military is forced to wait. On the other hand, if this theory is true, it would verify that there -is- a plan.

Calculated Risk and Reward

March 19, 2021 • jdonahue

My brother in asked if I would come by his place and see if I had any ideas about taking down a Virginia Pine tree that was leaning over the carport. We decided that we could remove some branches, pull it with a good nylon rope, guide it with a couple straps, and be careful how we made the cut at the bottom.

In the top picture, you can see the result, The tree is laying at about a 45 degree angle to the direction it was leaning, which was straight downhill toward the carport. I used the gold Ford van to pull the rope.

pine downThe next picture is taken uphill from the stump, facing the direction that the tree was leaning.

pine down2Here’s the stump, what’s interesting is how little wood was holding it up before it finally started to fall.

While I was there I saw some moss and English Ivy growing on a smaller Virginia Pine. That’s a type of Southern Yellow pine. They’re dense and heavy woods compared to other pines.

On the way home, I again passed this beautiful hone in a small valley. A very simple but nice paint scheme.
