Courage

July 22, 2015 file photo, Capt. Matthew Lohmeier

As of today, Matt Lohmeier’s brand new book Irresistible Revolution is the best seller on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  Matt has spent much of his life in service to our country and I know firsthand that he is a man of tremendous faith and character.  Friday, he was fired from his position in the military for comments he made regarding the influence of Marxism in the Armed Forces in an interview speaking about his new book.  Now, in large part because Matt has been fired for standing up for his beliefs, the news of this important book has reached nearly every media outlet in the world.

This is what courage looks like. We would all do well to remember that courage is what people are longing for.  Many of us shy away from controversy, because we don’t want to lose our jobs or become a target.  It’s understandable, of course, especially now when there’s a real threat of being canceled, harassed, or even worse.

I’m grateful for courageous people like Matt and his family who stand with him.  I pray for them.  I’ve bought two copies of his book so far and plan to buy many more to send to people I think would benefit from reading it.  I also stand with many of you, ready to help Matt and his family, in any way we can as things progress.  That’s a promise.

About 7 years ago, I found myself driving to a presentation being made by a friend.  The venue was Boise and as I was making the drive, another friend called me to warn me that the person I was going to listen to had just been excommunicated.  My friend was calling me from the East coast and seemed to almost have his information in real time.  He was very concerned for my welfare.  I was a bishop, he reminded me, and “I had a family I needed to take care of.”  My East coast friend was well-intentioned and was only trying to help.

As a result, I became fearful and wondered what I was doing.  I had read some books from this person speaking in Boise.  In fact, his books were changing my life.  My eyes seemed to be opening and my heart swelled within me as he expounded the scriptures in those books.  This man, who by this time I had known for several years, testified that he had seen the Lord.  Somehow, I knew he was telling the truth and I believed him.

BUT, I was a respected bishop.  I was in a position to make a difference in my ward and community.  In fact, up until then, I had been sharing this man’s books with ward members and was witnessing the positive effect his words were having on the people I was serving.  Was I now risking all that by attending the speech of a person the Church now called an apostate?  My East coast friend knew I was heading to Boise… would he tell on me?  In fact, my friend was good friends with one of the Twelve (soon to be two).  And let’s not forget, a high ranking church leader or two were in my own ward!  One of them already knew I was friends with this new enemy of the Church.

I reluctantly and sheepishly found a place to sit in this venue in Boise surrounded by people I did not know.  The group seemed a little informal and in my state of mind, I saw them generally as strange.  What on earth was I doing there!?  To make matters worse, my wife, at that time, did not approve in the least.

As this man began his speech, I was filled with anger, fear, angst, and regret… when suddenly something amazing happened.  The Lord spoke to me through this newest excommunicated obscure man.  He said:

Cowardice is largely predicated upon fear.  Don’t be cowardly.  Don’t be fearful.  Fear is the opposite of faith.  For goodness sake, you’re already in the battle!  You’re already going to be overtaken.  The fact of the matter is that no one gets out of here alive.  Live this life nobly, fearlessly.  When you take the wounds that come your way, you make sure that they come to your front!  Don’t let them shoot you in the back. Go about your life boldly, nobly, valiantly.  Because it is only through valiance in the testimony of Jesus Christ that you can hope to secure anything–not valiance in your fidelity to anything other than Jesus Christ.  The fact of the matter is that faith must be based in Him, and Him alone. (Be of Good Cheer, Boise, Idaho September 10, 2013, my emphasis added.)

The timeliness of these words struck me with such power and my heart immediately rejoiced!  Fear, doubt and anger all left me! Instead I wanted to stand valiantly and boldly and I wanted to shout Hallelujah!

Here was a man who had just been excommunicated, literally only a couple hours earlier.  I knew this man was a good man and that his actions did not merit being kicked out of the church.  Here was a man now about to be shunned by his community and forsaken by “friends.”  And yet, there he stood, unafraid, filled with God’s Spirit, and speaking words that brought power to my heart and mind.  I now knew this man was telling the truth and he may not know it, but those words have carried me through many dark moments.

This too is what courage looks like. Thanks in large part to this man, I know that fear is the opposite of faith.  I also pray for this man and his family and stand ready to defend his honor and character before the earthly and heavenly councils.  I know I do not stand alone and I praise God for it.

This man’s name is Denver Snuffer.

Brazen Servants

In light of Dieter Uchtdorf’s recent financial support for political candidates and causes that promote the killing of innocent children, the Church felt like it was a good idea to lead with him at this weekend’s conference–as if to say, “We still have confidence in our Apostle… and you can too.”

Sadly, the Church was complicit if not responsible for Uchtdorf’s official, less than forthright response.  They should have just told the truth.  Instead they now continue to seek to cover up their sins.

The saddest truth emerging from this experience is that we can now know, by the fruits of this alleged prophet, seer, and revelator, that he is not any of these things.  He can’t be, even by the Church’s own definition, which would prevent him from holding a temple recommend.

Do you support, affiliate with, or agree with any group or individual whose teachings or practices are contrary to or oppose those accepted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?  

As a bishop, I interviewed an Area Seventy for his Temple Recommend.  His reply to this question was, “Yes.  Boy Scouts.”  I laughed, and agreed with him.  His answer was truthful.  But, he went on to say that this was not the real intent of the question.  It was targeted towards polygamy and “apostasy,” he said.  Ironically, Biden is considered apostate by many leaders of his own church.  (Read here)

Elder Uchtdorf and likely other members of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve financially support and agree with individuals and groups whose teachings and practices are contrary to and oppose those accepted by the Church and as taught in the Scriptures.  These individuals and groups support abortion, gay marriage, deviant lifestyles, and they teach propaganda and lies to our children.  Even if Uchtdorf does not agree with some of the leftist communist agenda, his financial support to these groups and people is funding the above mentioned evils.

In President Benson’s day such members who openly supported socialism and communism and abortion and the agenda of Sodom, would have been dealt with if not excommunicated.  They would have been fired from BYU or other Church employment.  Released as a Church leader.  But today, it is these woke “prophets” who are financially supporting such wickedness, with no apologies.

As I watched Elder Uchtdorf today, I was both sad and offended.  I am not so easily persuaded by flowery words with no mention of his “deep regret” for breaking Church law and lying about it.  Don’t have him speak first and pretend like nothing happened.  They would have us look to him and his apostle colleagues and to President Nelson as a brazen serpent to be saved rather than be honest about their public sins and point us to Christ.  In their minds, it is only through them that we are saved.  On Easter Sunday weekend, that idea is deeply offensive.

They are indeed brazen.

Dieter F. Dupdorf

Latter-day Saint leader says oversight led to campaign donations made in his name to Biden, others

Elder Uchdorf gave financial contributions to fraudulently elected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this last year as well as to other democratic candidates and organizations.  He also gave money to the two liberal Senatorial candidates in Georgia, which gave complete, dangerous control of power to the liberal left.

I find a few things very troubling about this information.

First of all, Elder Uchdorf knowingly went against Church policy by supporting political candidates.

Secondly, he and the Church are now being dishonest about it.  The official statement is:  “Elder Uchdorf regrets the oversight of political contributions made in his name using a family account online.”  In the words of Elder Uchdorf’s new fake president I’d have to say: “Come on maaaaan!” Do you really think ANYONE believes that?  Be honest.  Own it.  You supported him and you know it.

Thirdly, I simply cannot believe that a man who calls himself a prophet, seer, and revelator, would support abortion, gay marriage and all other liberal causes AND cannot see that these recent events that he supported may lead to the end of religious freedom and to the end of our Nation.  This is most disappointing of all—especially coming from a man whose family escaped Naziism and was able to become an American citizen.

The Separation of Church and Estate

Vice President Joe Biden Receives Special Gift from Elders ...

The problem with doing business and real estate deals in various States and Countries, is one of compliance and compromise.  The entity wishing to have a legal and physically recognized presence in any domestic or foreign jurisdiction is required to comply with rules, laws, whims, bribes, and extortions of the sponsoring state.

The Church, for example, is literally required to make and keep covenants with Communists, in order to have a Church and Temple presence in China, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, and elsewhere.  One of the reasons the Church took so long to build a temple in France was because it was unwilling to keep the “covenants” of the Socialist French government that required access to its properties as a precondition, among other things.  And then the City of Versailles of course had a lot to say about what the temple had to look like.  It was an arduous process that was both a negotiation and series of compromises.  And it took more than 150 years.

The Church finds itself today in a very difficult position. The more it expands, the more it thinks it must appear neutral.  Unoffensive.  “Kind.”  “Good Global Citizens.”  The more it builds, the more it must compromise and the less it is able to say or teach about important issues, especially as the world falls apart around us.  People are craving guidance while the Church is trying to avoid being canceled and is attempting to navigate very turbulent political waters.

If the Church had been critical of the recently stolen election for example, it not only offends some of its members, it also offends all the mainstream media outlets, most world leaders, Antifa and BLM, Hollywood, Pro Sports, most major retailers and Big Tech companies, Congress, the new administration, members of the Supreme Court, local governments… and especially China, who helped orchestrate “the steal” and it invites the wrath of power structures that would seek to destroy it.

The Church would definitely never get its temple in China if it spoke the truth on many issues, especially human rights in China.  It would never get its meetinghouses.  And if it had those structures, they would be at risk of retaliation, violence, confiscation, and destruction.

We could cite many scenarios highlighting where the Church is vulnerable if it stands up and speaks truth.  In the US, it could lose its 501c3 status.  This is effectively what Wilford Woodruff “saw” in vision (envisioned may be a more accurate way to say it) when the Church was literally losing its freedoms over its stance on polygamy.  The Church was forced to eventually comply.  Otherwise prison and confiscation of properties was the alternative.

So the Church has chosen to remain neutral.  Which sounds fine on its face.  “Be diplomatic and kind and don’t talk politics…”  We all know the drill.  But what about when it comes to abortion or other moral issues?  What about when it comes to election integrity and Constitutional issues?  Right to bear arms?  Freedom of speech?  Freedom of assembly (see CoVid)?  Right to not be vaccinated?  The right to pray in public and private squares?  The right to petition and protest?  The right to not wear a mask?  Especially when you’ve already been vaccinated or had CoVid already…

Let’s take the issue of private property rights.  Think of the couple who are literally being prosecuted and crucified in the media for standing with unloaded guns (brandished but not pointing) in front of their own home as a mob ran towards them… on their own property.  Does the Church not believe in being able to enforce trespassing laws?  Castle laws?  Does it not want to defend those freedoms to protect oneself and one’s family?

Remember when the protestors used to roam through Temple Square with pickets and pamphlets?  They are all gone now, because the Church was far from “neutral” in that political matter.  It stood up for its rights to prevent people it deemed unsavory from standing on their private property.

So what does the Church do?  It’s damned if it does and damned if it doesn’t speak up.  I recognize and I sympathize with their dilemma.  Sadly at some point in the near future they may face being forced to perform gay marriages or get vaccinations that were created using aborted fetal tissue if they want to send missionaries out to foreign countries, or even just to remain a non-profit.  Why?  Because we are so tied to Babylon and to the State.

Here’s a crazy thought.  What if the Church had no property?  Or maybe just one temple and one big piece of land?  We are accustomed to feeling like we need churches, but do we?  We’re proving right now that we can do Church at home or over Zoom…  What if instead of going towards properties, tithing actually went to care for the poor among us?  Did Christ build churches?  Did He build a temple?  Why didn’t He?    

Did Joseph Smith build meetinghouses in the 14 years he was prophet?  Not a single one.  They built the Kirtland temple and tried to build the Nauvoo temple with the goal being to build and keep one temple that would be the center point of Zion that the Lord could come to and dwell in.  But, Joseph did not build or have plans to build a single church house I am aware of and he had no vision to dot the earth with temples.

Members during Christ’s day and Joseph’s, met in members’ homes and outside when weather permitted and rented halls as needed.  They did not enter into agreements with governments to the extent we do now, especially as we seek to establish abroad, largely because its mission was not property expansion driven as it seems to be today.  Yes, we wanted to bring the gospel to the corners of the earth, but at that point, members would immigrate to “Zion” or continue to meet locally in fellowships in homes and halls.

Imagine if our Church leaders could speak unrestrained like the prophets of old.  Sure, they would become targets and would likely be threatened with violence, if not killed.  Many of us would.  But there would be no temptation to enter into covenants with the Great Whore or temptation to compromise as we do now as a result of billions of dollars and thousands of properties and hundreds of thousands of jobs all being at stake.  We would be less tempted to feel the need to protect those worldly things.  Perhaps we would speak our minds more freely.  We’d be much more able and willing to flee.  The Church clearly spoke its mind more freely and taught truth more openly in days when it was not a global church.

Here’s an idea.  What if the Church sold almost everything?  “Sell all that thou hast and give to the poor.”  And separated the Church from the world and took care of its own.  Preached more boldly.  Built a place of refuge in the mountaintops, away from the madness of this world.  Built a place for a people to flee to.  Then perhaps we could teach truth and not cower because of who we are subject to.  This seems like the pattern of Scripture does it not?  Flee Egypt?  Flee Babylon?  Flee Sodom?  Flee Jerusalem?  Flee Missouri?  Find our waters of Mormon and our secluded Jordan River and our Promised Land… Our Zion.  Care not what man can do or how we will live.  Look at the lilies of the field and how they are adorned and cared for.  Travel without purse or scrip.  All flesh is grass.  Oh I know it’s idyllic.  But, maybe not…

One thing feels sure:  The Great Whore sits upon the many waters and has dominion over the whole earth and we have contracts and obligations to her and all institutions seem to be failing right before our eyes.  It’s comply or be cancelled.  Very few are not complying.  Very few are standing up.  The only way to eventually escape will be if we are able to flee to Zion, which will not be a “stake” but will be a City and NOT Salt Lake City.  A Holy City at the tops of the Mountains.  In order to do so, we must find truth and we must repent and we must prepare.  Cities in Florida and Malls in Salt Lake City and Philadelphia will soon serve no purpose, as Babylon falls and as the Whore loses her kingdom.  They will provide no milk and no shelter from the storm that is coming.

I can’t speak for you, but this last election has taught me one very important lesson that the flesh cannot be relied upon and that the truth is all that matters now.  I will not be lied to or dragged about any longer by the false and vain leaders of this world.  I repent of my political idolatry and seek to adopt the counsel of a very wise friend who recently said:

“Politics makes a poor religion.”

Wars and Rumors of Wars

There are three likely reasons I can think of for why 30,000 troops are currently in the nation’s Capitol.

1) To deter Trump from invoking the Insurrection Act and declaring Martial Law.

2) Trump will be invoking the above and the Troops are for him to do so.

3) Our nation is preparing to be attacked by China.

One thing is certain—30,000 troops in DC is unprecedented and I can assure you it’s not to protect Inauguration participants from wild Trump supporters.  They won’t be there.

Some predict that Civil War is coming soon and that States will at some point attempt secession, which is not likely to be welcomed by a Leftist Federal Government, assuming Biden takes office.

Any of this would have sounded crazy just a year or even 8 weeks ago.  But, as we sit here on Sunday January 17, 2021, we are literally less than 3 days away from knowing the fate of our nation.

Will we be at war with some foreign nation?  Will a corrupt man be placed in office, who any honest or discerning person KNOWS did not win in a fair election?  If so, our nation has ended.  Or will Trump and others have the courage to stand up against this coup and do what the Constitution requires of him?  He needs our prayers right now.  Our nation needs our prayers.

I’ve been discouraged lately about the LDS Church’s focus and messaging.  They’ve taken this “pandemic” very seriously, for example, which I’m sorry, but I do not.  Is it deadly?  Sure, for people with co-morbidities, it has proven to be.  How many have died FROM CoVid we may never know, but some have reported that the number is that somewhere between 6 and 16% of the deaths being reported are legitimate CoVid deaths.  My family and I and millions of others have been sick with CoVid and have survived.  Even generous numbers show that 99.97% of all people who get the illness, recover.

And so my question to the Church, and to anyone of sound mind is:  Is shutting down the world, relinquishing freedoms we will NOT get back, normalizing the wearing of masks, social distancing, and quarantines, while forcing companies out of business, destroying lives, normalizing the dehumanization of society… IS THIS the right way to respond to a flu?  I expected and hoped for more vision and leadership from the Church on this issue.

Instead, they have placed themselves at the forefront of wokeness, and are calling upon members to wear the mask and obey the “science” as a sign of “Christlike love” and global obedience.

Our nation is literally being taken over by Communists, this fake pandemic is a part of their plan, and we as members of the Church are being told to be good citizens by wearing the mask, recommending getting an untested vaccine, and by doing what we’re told to do.

During the bloody destructive racist protests of this year from BLM and Antifa, started by the false flag of George Floyd’s death, what was the Church’s response for that event?  It was “We condemn racism!”  And Mitt Romney walking with BLM in parades (not social distancing) while the rest of us are still under lockdown.  Then there was the talk from President Oaks about “Black Lives Matter being an eternal principle.”  Where was the outrage against BLM and Antifa for the violence?  Sure, it was casually alluded to, but their messaging was clear.  They wanted the world to know they were on the Woke Team.

But today the Church is REALLY wanting to make sure that everyone knows that they NOW DO condemn violence.  Not the violence caused by the gay transgender BLM movement which was understandable because of the racist killing of George Floyd, and not the violence of a black Capitol police officer against an unarmed white woman who supported Trump, but rather the violence at the Capitol that was being falsely blamed on Trump supporters, where police tear gassed families and old people who were not burning or breaking anything but who were picking up trash and singing Christian songs.  So it’s the violence that might have been committed by Trump supporters and was supposed to be committed by them that the Brethren are worried about?

“We will not participate in the violence threatened by those disappointed with the outcome,” said President Oaks.  The First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles “condemn violence and lawless behavior, including the recent violence in Washington D.C. and any suggestion of further violence.”

Should this be their message right now?  It’s surely the common woke PR theme now as conservatives all over the world are being cancelled.  Marriott for example just announced it would never again give financial support to the Congressmen who voted against the electoral results from the 6 or 7 states that, by the way, submitted two opposing slates of electors.  Most companies have done the same.  Some are now calling for the removal of Senators Hawley and Cruz or even for their prosecution.  This, just after a one day impeachment proceeding, where zero credible evidence was relied upon to AGAIN impeach a president for having done nothing wrong.

Old ladies are being ripped off planes because they said the name Trump.  People are now on the terrorist no fly list because they dared chant USA and traitor to Mitt Romney on a flight.  Banks and Credit Card companies and phone companies are tracking and punishing their customers if they were in DC on January 6th.  Parler shut down.  100s of thousands of conservative Twitter accounts purged while people who have F bombed and threatened the lives of conservatives including hostile terror regimes are kept online.  Liberals like Maxine Waters have told democrats to “Get up in their face in the restaurant!”  Facebook, the company the LDS Church has 1 billion dollars of stock in, literally helped steal this last election.

I would have hoped that the Church would have sent out a message regarding the importance of election integrity, the importance of due process, of honoring the Office of our President, the value and importance of standing up against tyranny, the importance of not giving up our freedoms out of fear, the importance of free speech and not banning or canceling the speech of those you disagree with…  The list could go on and on.  Why hasn’t the Church been speaking out in defense of our freedoms?  Why won’t the Church condemn the Left, and yet is so quick to condemn the Right?  All while saying it remains politically neutral.

Is the Church out of touch with reality?

This week the Church came out with a new publication called Deseret Magazine.  Its first cover highlights what seems to be their current thinking.

And who do they turn to to lecture us on how to fix America in this first issue?  Mitt Romney, Jeff Flake, Cindy McCain, and Ben Sasse.  To me, this represents a very dire incorrect world view, if they believe that anyone in America thinks these people can provide us with AN OUNCE of healing wisdom.  These fools are the problem in our political system.  They represent everything many of us have come to hate: hypocrisy, duplicity, treachery, dishonesty, cowardice, and self-righteousness.  Is that what the Church wants to lead with in helping heal the nation?

Meanwhile the Church seems intent on doubling down on what it believes is most important right now.  Not election integrity or the importance of America surviving a communist coup, but rather how can we better love the LGBTQ community.  Deseret Book was leading with this advertisement just this week in its mass emails.  (Keep in mind that the Church’s website is devoid of anything relating to the current political situation except reference to its statement on condemning Trump supporters)

Forget how sacrilegious it is to mock God’s covenant rainbow and forget how insincere and foolish it is to pander and stereotype and tacitly encourage perversions…  forget all that for a moment and let’s just focus on the timing here.  We are literally 3 days away from potentially losing our NATION and the Church thinks it needs to do more to make LGBTQ people feel more  at home.

Was the Church of Jesus Christ of Sodom-day Saints promoting how to better love their gay neighbors when God sent fire from heaven down to destroy them?  Was that their focus then?  Meanwhile the gay neighbors were trying to have sex with the angels sent to Lot’s house causing Lot to offer his virgin daughters up to them to satisfy their insatiable, societally-accepted normalized sexual appetites.

Of course we’re supposed to LOVE everyone, but that does not mean we pander to them.  I love liberals and have many gay and liberal friends.  But, I will not pretend like I don’t think THEY and their ideologies are not largely responsible for the current loss of our nation which if and when it actually happens will lead to the deaths of hundreds of millions of people.  For God will NOT be mocked!  Their complicity in abortion alone is sufficient condemnation for our nation’s destruction. This is not to say that there is not ample wickedness on all sides to invoke the wrath of God, but Sodomy is named after Sodom for a reason.

Other messages from the Church at this time of world crisis are:

And…

And let’s not forget the courageous story about Cosmo the Cougar coming out as gay…  that too can be found being showcased at a Deseret Book near you.

Is this true leadership at a time when we need it most?  Does this demonstrate seership or even discernment?  What would Captain Moroni say at this time, if he were here with us?  What would President Benson say?  I thought we were supposed to stand for what is right and let the consequences follow?  Is Communism no longer a threat?  Was he wrong?  Was President Benson old-fashioned?  Would he be happy with our new LGBTQ focus?  If not, then was he a false prophet?  What does the Church believe about free speech?  Censorship?  The right to bear arms?  Illegal immigration?  The rule of law?  American greatness?  The Constitution?

The Church I was raised in fought against the gay agenda.  It was actively involved in politics against gay marriage and abortion.  The president I revered the most spoke out about the imminent threat of Communism and warned us they were trying to infiltrate every aspect of our society by pushing God out of our schools and by taking over the education of our children among many other things.  Again, I ask WHERE IS THE LEADERSHIP TODAY?  We need it!  WHERE IS COURAGE?  WHERE IS PROPHECY?  Where do we turn and where will we go IF and WHEN our beloved America is no more?

…Where is Zion?

I weep for the current state we find ourselves in.  I had hoped that wickedness would not prevail in this current coup.  It’s not just a president that is having his office stolen from him.  It’s a nation having its freedoms and its Constitution taken.

If the Troops turn out to be there for Trump, then we will be facing very tough times ahead.

If the Troops are there for the Leftists, we will be in for even worse times than we can possibly imagine.

If we are going to be attacked by a foreign adversary at this time of transition, then God help us all.

These are sobering times.  Like you, I’ve been in mourning and pleading with God to save our nation.  We now see what they will do when they get full power.  Perhaps the most disappointing thing for me has been the acknowledgment that nearly ALL institutions are failing us.

As I was looking for answers this week I opened the scriptures and noticed a verse in Nephi that had been highlighted.

And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the whore of all the earth, and she sat upon many waters, and she had dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people. And it came to pass that I beheld the church of the Lamb of God, and its numbers were few because of the wickedness and abominations of the whore who sat upon many waters. Nevertheless, I beheld that the church of the Lamb, who were the saints of God, were also upon all the face of the earth; and their dominions upon the face of the earth were small because of the wickedness of the great whore whom I saw. And it came to pass that I beheld that the great mother of abominations did gather together in multitudes upon the face of all the earth, among all the nations of the gentiles, to fight against the Lamb of God. And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended upon the saints of the church of the Lamb and upon the covenant people of the Lord, who were scattered upon all the face of the earth. And they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory. And it came to pass that I beheld that the wrath of God was poured out upon that great and abominable church, insomuch that there were wars and rumors of wars among all the nations and kindreds of the earth. And as there began to be wars and rumors of wars among all the nations which belonged to the mother of abominations, the angel spake unto me, saying, Behold, the wrath of God is upon the mother of harlots, and behold, thou seest all these things. And when the day cometh that the wrath of God is poured out upon the mother of harlots — which is the great and abominable church of all the earth, whose foundation is the Devil — then at that day the work of the Father shall commence in preparing the way for the fulfilling of his covenants which he hath made to his people who are of the house of Israel.

What is the whore of all the earth?  Is it ANY and EVERY institution that has been corrupted by money, fame, fortune, power, etc?  How many of these institutions “depend upon” China for example?  Or upon Government?  Are controlled by the media or Big Tech?  Are addicted to power and wealth?  Sex?  Have been brainwashed by public education?  Fear being canceled, sued, deplatformed?  Walmart, last I checked, was a patriotic company.  But, today they are beholden to the Whore and have shown that their business model is more important than their nation.  What members of Congress surprised you recently because of their ties to the Whore?  How many have caved to the pressure?  Their funding, their offices, the safety of their loved ones… all is at risk if they do not pledge allegiance to the Great Whore.  Its dominion is over the whole earth.  And now She, who is the Mother of Abominations (sexual perversion, abortion, murder, lying, stealing, etc.) is gathering together among all the nations of the Gentiles, to fight against the Lamb of God.  Who are they fighting and what are they fighting against?  THEY may not even know exactly WHY they are doing what they are.  Satan and his allies know that their kingdom is about to be toppled.  And there’s ONLY one people it is concerned with.  The people who have a covenant from God who are scattered upon all the face of the earth.  For all we know the number of people scattered is 8.  Or 800.  None of that matters.  This small group with a Covenant from almighty God threatens the adversary’s rule, reign, power, and existence.  When God lifts up the small Ark of the Covenant people, Satan’s kingdom, now amassing and consolidating, and that currently has dominion over the whole earth, will fall.  And great shall be the fall thereof and MANY there will be who are swept off.

The Book of Mormon warns us of what we now see happening.  Sadly, even the LDS Church seems to be acting like Walmart.  Just doing what it needs to in order to survive.  It fears the loss of its 501c3 and the destruction of its property.  It fears offending the 20% or so within the Church who are now liberals.  It fears offending future progressives in nations around the world it hopes to convert.  I was told this last week that a handful of the Brethren (Top 15) are liberal and would support Biden and Romney and that most did not like Trump.  This was from someone who would know.  I feel sorry for them if this is the case and I predict that many will lose faith in the Church as a result.

To put it into perspective the Church is aligning with:

  • Hollywood, including Lady Gaga. In fact, if Biden wins, the Tabernacle Choir will be singing at the same event as Lady Gaga who was recently seen in a disgusting picture drinking the blood of children.
  • Big Tech
  • Big Business
  • Communist China
  • The NBA, including Lebron James
  • Professional Sports
  • MItt Romney and Harry Reed and Nancy Pelosi and Mayor Lightfoot, and Governor Cuomo, and Gavin Newsome and Chuck Schumer and ALL the liberals who are so corrupt you can’t put it into words.  Hillary, Bill, Bill Gates, Obama…
  • Big Pharma

The Church is aligning with the World.  Babylon.  The Whore.

This is the team the Church is on by calling Joe Biden and congratulating him while the election was and IS being contested.  This is the team the Church chooses when it makes woke statements timed with the events of riots, and plandemics, and false flag operations…  This is the team the Church chooses when they PROMOTE LGBTQ rights.  And when they set up a website for LDS Transgenders.  And when they negotiate with murderous communist China to try to get a Temple in their country.  The Church IS choosing THIS team.  You can decide if that offends what you believe or not.  But don’t tell me it isn’t a shift in direction for them.

The Church should look at the Republican Party’s base and realize this truth — WE WILL NEVER TRUST THEM AGAIN!  I for one, will never vote again, let alone vote for a Republican.  We see them now for what they are and conclude that they are just all talk.  Sounding brass and tinkling symbols.  The Church may face the same reality here soon if they do not change course.  And thanks to them and every other cowardly institution, afraid of being cancelled, we may very well lose our nation this week.

Release the Kraken

If you’re like me, you haven’t slept well for weeks. It feels like we’re living in some alternate reality. I’ve spoken to hundreds of other people who are fervently praying that this attempted coup of our country fails. Surely we can’t go down like this. Not the Nation Under God, the City on the Hill! Not the Land our Fathers and Mothers have fought for — have given their lives for!

My family came to this land in 1635. I’m so grateful to my great-great—grandfather who commandeered his own small vessel to the British American colonies in search of something greater. Like many of your ancestors, mine fought in all the great wars that have preserved our freedoms. They fought for both the North and the South in the Civil War that nearly destroyed our Great Union of States. They truly gave their wealth, their honor and their lives for what we have so richly enjoyed.

No nation on earth has what America has — a divinely given Constitution, and a people whose majority still hopefully worship Almighty God. While I worry that our days our numbered as a nation, I am still praying we survive this latest attempted coup. Please Dear Lord, if it be Your Will, spare Your vineyard a little longer.

When I was in DC, an attorney named Sidney Powell made a statement that they were going to “release the Kraken.” Sidney Powell is one of the most feared and respected lawyers in America. She was admitted to law school at age 19 and has had an amazing career. She’s best known lately for taking over representation for General Michael Flynn, who was pardoned today by President Trump, after being set up by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Jim Comey and others in a seditious hoax obstruction trap. His family was threatened by a vile and corrupt DOJ led by the aforementioned criminal politicians, and so he pled guilty to false charges, which plea he later withdrew.

Although I knew Powell was credible, “releasing the Kraken” seemed like hyperbole. But, she continued to mention it, nearly every time she spoke.

The Kraken is a reference to a huge octopus from the Clash of the Titans used in battle to destroy enemy ships

And then, Lin Wood, another amazing attorney from Georgia, known for his representation of Richard Jewell, Nicolas Sandman, and Kyle Rittenhouse — and who is consulting Sidney Powell and indirectly the Trump team, recently re-posted something about what the Kraken might actually be:

https://themarshallreport.wordpress.com/2020/11/22/sidney-powells-kraken-is-dod-cyber-warfare-program-we-are-at-war/

Click on the link above to learn more. According to this article, the “Kraken” is actually a DoD-run cyber warfare program that tracks and hacks various other systems to acquire evidence of nefarious actions by the deep state. Trump loyalists in the Air Force, Space Command and now in certain sectors of the DoD and even the NSA have all the evidence of vote fraud and election-related treason. Trump has all this now and will be using it against the enemies of America very soon.” (see source)

Now, admittedly when I read this and saw that the mainstream news media (MSM) was reporting that the Trump administration was distancing itself from Powell (and I assumed Wood), I became discouraged that perhaps this is all hyperbole and too good to be true.

As I write this, and as a skeptic, I concede and admit that it all still sounds too good to be true, BUT I do think the following ideas are very interesting and promising:

  • Now we know that Sidney Powell and the Trump legal team have simply bifurcated their legal arguments. This allows Powell to be a little more bold in her approach without risking all the claims and arguments. She’s attacking Dominion Voting Systems among other things. She can go for the jugular without tainting Trump.
  • “Powell is registered as a military lawyer and can prosecute treason…” (Source)
  • Upon concern that Trump has been strangely quiet of late, Powell tweeted to not worry that “Trump can now sit back and relax and watch because he has released the Kraken…”
  • Lin Wood has mentioned numerous times that “Biden is going to Prison.” And that hundreds of other high ranking officials and people will go to prison when all comes to light. Everyone will be exposed! He said it will shock us to find out who has occupied the White House in past administrations. Pedophiles and criminals. Bold indeed!
  • If Lin Wood (or Sidney Powell) was tweeting something false about the military (i.e. the DOD program Kraken), one would think that General Flynn would correct him or ask Sidney to.
  • Even Twitter doesn’t censor Wood. Remember he just won a defamation case for a rumored $250,000,000 against CNN for his 18 year old client Nicholas Sandman. He is both credible and feared.
  • Trump mysteriously and abruptly fired his Defense Secretary Mark Esper immediately after the election and replaced him with Christopher Miller, a known Trump loyalist and patriot who was acting as the Director of National Counterterrorism. No one knows what to think of this. Why fire and replace your DOD secretary when you fear election fraud?
  • Miller immediately led a DOD seizure of servers located in Germany, that are believed to contain evidence of election fraud and foreign interference, among other criminal activities. These servers were alleged to be CIA servers…
  • This seizure was done without the CIA’s (Gina Haspel) and without the DOJ’s (Chris Wray/Bill Barr) knowledge. It seems unprecedented to take CIA servers or any servers without consulting these two department heads.
  • The DOJ has already said it won’t be doing anything to investigate election fraud. This is also shocking and makes NO SENSE. Now, I know some are convinced that the DOJ and FBI are completely incompetent, but even as corrupt as they may be, NOT investigating fraud in this year’s election seems implausible…
  • Unless DOD is handling it!!!! I.e. the release of the Kraken! Miller and Trump may very well be acting to protect against enemies domestic and foreign and won’t be needing DOJ for now. Are we talking war crimes? Espionage charges? Military tribunals?
  • Then last night Trump tweeted the same story as Lin Wood:

  • Why on earth would President Trump, who is in charge of the military, tweet a story that isn’t true?
  • Is this the Trump card? Trump knew this was coming and warned it would be the greatest fraud we have ever seen, even greater than the Russia and impeachment hoaxes. When I heard that I thought it was just Trump being dramatic. None of us could have imagined, after all we’ve seen in 2020, that there would be something bigger than CoVid, Russia Hoax, Impeachment Hoax, etc.
  • And because he knew it was coming, it would seem impossible for Trump to do nothing to prepare….
  • In 2018, Trump signed an executive order (EO) that very few people are aware of, which “created command structure to combat election fraud.” (See it here)
  • This EO declares a State of Emergency and gives the president and his administration very broad powers to combat election interference. Ironically, this EO was seen as a Trump apology by the MSM so as to appear as to be concerned with the election interference he and Russia were accused of in 2016, i.e. the first great conspiracy against Trump, which included illegal, treasonous spying on American citizens with fraudulently acquired warrants. Now it appears it may have been a brilliant move by Trump who knew this was coming.

Meanwhile, the MSM and many dishonest and/or foolish people have coronated their president-elect Biden into an office that doesn’t even exist, and before the electoral college or even the States have certified the results. Trump has vowed he is not conceding.

I should also point out that Wood and Powell and others have accused Republican and Democratic governors of making backdoor deals with China during the CoVid pandemic and of self interested deals with Dominion.

I still believe Trump will pull this off. Even while Biden picks his cabinet and picks out his drapes. Notice that Kamala Harris has yet to quit her Senate seat. They are all pretending like they’ve won and like Trump is being a pig for not conceding, and the MSM is acting like there isn’t a shred of evidence of fraud. Ignore the fact that Pennsylvania sent out 1.8 million mail in ballots and received 2.5 million back. Ignore the 4 am data dumps all for Biden that overcame 800,000 vote leads in one state alone. Ignore the hundreds of whistleblowers and the thousands of eye witnesses. Ignore all the video! Ignore the truth and tell us we are crazy. Trump was impeached because of ONE whistleblower who proved to be a corrupt insider and who wasn’t even a firsthand eyewitness! And here, we have countless whistleblowers and thousands of pages of affidavits from eyewitnesses and yet no one cares!!!!! I have news for you — America isn’t going down like this.

And I’m sorry, but where is Mitt Romney? Where was President Nelson when he had the opportunity in his address to the world? Is it too “political” to make a statement as the Church President and as a World Global Faith Leader (as he’s being now called) to call out lies, corruption, cheating, fraud and scandal as it pertains to one of our most important institutions? I know he made a casual reference to “dishonesty,” but it was very broad.

Why is Lin Wood, an attorney in Georgia, more bold and more righteously indignant about this attempted coup than the President of the only true and living Church? More inspiring? Aren’t the prophets suppose to weigh in on such things? Moroni sure did. Joseph Smith sure did. Ezra Taft Benson sure did. Moroni wrote letters to Pahoran, the Governor and called him out for what he thought was sedition. He warned he would come and destroy Pahoran or anyone who sought to overthrow their freedoms.

Is the Church so concerned about its “safety” that it will never again be courageous in its statements on abortion, LBGTQ issues, socialism and communism, the Constitution… or unwilling to call out fraud when it threatens to literally topple our government? The very government that is intended to protect our religious freedoms! Biden and the Leftists literally want to encourage 5 year olds to embrace their transgenderism. Just google it. It should disgust anyone from any background. Why would the Church NOT be more vocal against such important issues? About this election being stolen by those who promise to turn our Nation into a perverted, progressive, hedonist paradise!

There are even Democrats like Overstock founder Patrick Byrnes who are standing up to fight! Why? Because it’s the right thing to do! And if good people do nothing, evil prevails and in this case NO ONE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THEIR VOTE AGAIN!

Instead, we are told to use the very social media platforms complicit in stealing this election to #givethanks. It’s like saying, “Hey, I know the boat we’re on is sinking, but let’s take 7 days to carve the things we’re grateful for onto the ship’s walls.” Hell no, I say! Get up and do something to help save this our Country! And while you’re at it, get OFF social media!

Let’s all pray in the meantime, that Release the Kraken or something like unto it is real. I think if this darkness is exposed and people finally go to prison for their crimes, and for a brief moment truth prevails, I will fall to my knees and weep. I could be wrong in all this, but I will for now speak what I believe to be truth.

I am consoled to know that our Lord loved His Nation too. His will be done, not ours, on earth and in Heaven and may glory be to Him, who is Worthy, forever and ever, Amen and Amen.

O Jerusalem O Jerusalem, by Greg Olsen

Satan’s Dominion

I was privileged to be one of more than 1 million peaceful protesters in Washington DC this past weekend. I felt strongly I needed to be there. I’ve been feeling strongly about a lot of things lately. I decided to cancel all my social media accounts last week. Many in Big Tech believe they are the lawful arbiters of free speech. They censor anyone who disagrees with them. They are peddling propaganda and I believe are complicit in trying to steal this year’s elections. These companies are so self-righteously smug and hypocritical. They let psychopaths livestream beheadings and publish porn, but won’t let someone share conservative ideas that oppose their viewpoint and expose their agenda. They are bullies and it is they who are Fascists and who control free speech.

I also canceled mainstream news, most notably Fox News. It’s obvious these people mock us who love our country, our God, our families, and our religion. And they too, are complicit in the fake polling and in encouraging election fraud, in part by sustaining this fake president elect even before he’s been certified as such and while the election is being legally contested in many states by countless parties. It’s obvious to any honest person that there was massive fraud in this election, and yet almost no mainstream media outlet wants to look into it. It’s shameful and it’s treasonous.

I’ve also canceled the NBA, NFL, MLB, MLS, and Hollywood. I canceled Netflix and YouTubeTV and many other Apps. They all want to cancel us and our freedom, so I’ve decided to cancel them. I can’t just sit back and let these people take over our nation. None of us freedom loving people can.

I was surprised when I landed in DC at how few American flags there were. There used to be one on every building and on every lapel. But this time it felt dark. People dressed in black and many people openly sharing their disgust for our president and for our “system” that they say is only working for a few, privileged white people. One Uber driver said she hoped things never returned to “normal.” “The masks are great, the riots and violence are great.” She and many other locals seemed very happy with BLM and Antifa. “It’s time to burn it all down and do something different.”

I became discouraged that my trip was in vain and that perhaps few people would attend the pro America rally the next day on November 14th.

Then, I began to see people here and there in town and at our hotel, who were coming in from all over the country with flags on their cars. People wearing Make America Great Again hats and Trump t-shirts. It gave me some hope.

The next day as I walked to Freedom Plaza to meet the group, I became overwhelmed with emotion. There were not hundreds, or thousands of people. There were hundreds OF thousands and some said, as many as 2 million people, in attendance! A sea of red, white, and blue! Families, small children, baby strollers, moms, dads, old people, vets, people in wheelchairs. Singing the national anthem, and God Bless America. Chanting USA! People of all colors and from all backgrounds! From all 50 states and from many countries! I met people from Chile and China and Hong Kong. Almost no one wearing masks, in fact many saying they believed that CoVid was not a pandemic at all. Chinese people handing out anti-CCP literature alleging that China created and let this virus loose to do exactly what we are witnessing. To destroy Western civilization and to get rid of Trump.

I began to walk with these patriots and was so profoundly touched that I was not alone in my love for my country! The Amish were there! Catholic priests! Jews! I sang with them. I prayed with them. No one social distanced. People shook my hand, gave me hugs, spit in my face as they talked! It was so refreshing to be human again. To be American again!

Surely if CoVid as a veritable pandemic is real, which I don’t believe it is, this should be the greatest super spreader event of the century! 1+ million people from all 50 states going home after zero social distancing and no masks. Time will tell.

There was such a contrast between these people who descended upon Washington and those who live there. Many who feed off the DC swamp seemingly have lost their way. These Patriots came in and with their singing and smiling faces, brought a Spirit back to this spiritually war torn Capitol. A Spirit that said, “WE WILL NOT HAVE OUR FREEDOM STOLEN FROM US! WE WILL NOT LET THIS BE DONE IN DARKNESS!”

After we sang the National Anthem, a huge bird (hawk or eagle) appeared out of nowhere and flew directly over our heads and circled around. A woman near me cried out, “It’s a sign!”

I have never experienced anything quite like this in all my life. At one point, president Trump was said to have driven through part of the crowd, waving and smiling and showing his gratitude for the outpouring of support.

Here are some more pictures from this amazing day.


We listened to rousing patriotic speeches from Congressional leaders. There were TV personalities. My favorite speech was from a black democrat named Vernon Jones. He was awesome! We visited with each other. There was no violence. No arguing. Everyone was friendly and all felt safe. I noticed as I talked to people that there was a consensus that this election is being stolen from President Trump and from many other Republican candidates and that NONE of these people were willing to stand idly by and let it happen.

This was in stark contrast to what I was sensing from the locals I met who not only celebrated a Biden victory, but who also were doing all they could to show support for BLM and Antifa. Signs in windows and in front of churches. Perhaps so that they would not be vandalized or perhaps because they too are fooled into sympathy for a transgender terrorist organization.


As the million+ crowd of American patriots peacefully dispersed, and as it became dark, Antifa and BLM took to the streets and began to terrorize these good people. This was a picture of them as they walked by where we sat for dinner on the sidewalk. Sadly, the local couple next to us began cheering and dancing when these animals blasted their F-Trump rap music and spewed vile racist profanity. One of their gangster leaders had a megaphone and was getting everyone all riled up. He looked at me and I thought he might come over and harass us as we ate. The restaurant owner ran out and began cheering for them! Moments earlier I watched her turn down a large party of young college student MAGA supporters, saying their group was too large, even though there was plenty of room in her restaurant. It was all very unsettling.

This man with the megaphone was later arrested for knocking out a man out for no reason, among many other things. He has a criminal record and is a convicted child molester.

And then these evil animals stomped and kicked this innocent man as he lay in the street. What was his crime? He supported his president. He loved his country.

I went back to my hotel room and watched the news of other violence and like you, I became so angry and at one point just cried. Children, old people, special needs people — all being tormented by these criminals who hate America.

A week earlier, many of these same people danced in the streets. Ignoring their own rules of social distancing. They had no flags. No red, white, and blue.

No Trump supporters attacked them. They were allowed to express themselves without any concern for their well-being.

The only flags to be seen across the country for those celebrating a Biden victory, seem only to be Gay Pride flags. I think this shows where their allegiance lies.

As I watch these events unfold, I mourn what I witness to be the unraveling of our great nation.

America is still a little behind nation’s like Germany who are breaking into people’s homes to arrest them for being “anti-lockdown.” Videos like this one below should truly be disturbing IF in fact this Doctor is being arrested for not complying with CoVid lockdown laws.

https://rumble.com/vb92wv-german-anti-lockdown-activist-dr.-andreas-noack-arrested-while-livestreamin.html

I say we are “close behind”, but I’m not sure that’s accurate. Even here in Utah, our rights are being trampled upon by our Governor. And we’ve seen soccer moms arrested and pepper sprayed for not having a mask on while outside in some states. And now these crazies are canceling Thanksgiving and trying to control our freedom to assemble.

I personally am not conceding nor will I give up! It is 100% obvious to me and millions of others that this election was rigged and that these evil people want to take over our country. I predict that the fraud will be uncovered sufficiently so as to secure a Trump victory and possibly even control of the House in addition to the Senate. It would be ironic if the new Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett breaks any tie in the Supreme Court. If I’m wrong, which is very possible, it may be peaceful enough in the short term, but it will be the end of the USA as we know it.

I am so grateful for people like Sidney Powell and Lin Wood, attorneys advising the Trump administration. They are people of unquestioned integrity. They are truth tellers, patriots, and spiritual warriors. May God bless them and protect them. May we all pray for them and for our President.

I’m almost more concerned about what happens if and when my prediction comes true and Trump wins. I think it could be the beginning of a civil war. When it is shown that this and MOST elections in our world are pre-determined by a group of global elites whose “dominion” covers the entire earth, the very jaws of hell will gape open. Darkness will rear its vile head and inspire the hearts of men to violence like we have never seen.

And the Kraken has been released…

So, what will you do to defend our Constitution? What can we do? I’d say join in peaceful rallies and protests. Call our nation’s leaders. Write them. Email them. Let them know how you feel! Fast and pray. Get your house in order. What’s at stake? Everything good. If we lose this battle, we lose our nation.

Tomorrow the president of the LDS Church will address the world. I hope and I pray that he talks about the importance of our Constitution, our freedoms, and our religious liberty. I hope he denounces specifically the violence of BLM and Antifa. I hope he does not say a word about “racism” — further fueling that false narrative of those organizations. I hope he’s bold! I hope he does NOT allege or assume that Joe Biden has won this election. I hope he denounces cheating and fraud and I hope he calls it out. I hope he speaks in favor of the rule of law. I hope he encourages people to get involved in the fight for freedom. I hope he reminds church members to get involved and to not be afraid to exercise God-given rights. I hope he calls out the hoax of this “pandemic.” I hope he calls for faith and not fear. I hope he reminds us that we have a right and a duty to be civilly disobedient to laws and edicts that are unconstitutional. I hope he doesn’t cave to the whims of political correctness and bow the knee to hypocrites making policies they themselves are unwilling to obey. I hope President Nelson stands up for truth tomorrow.

This is communism and socialism or it is freedom. This is good versus evil. This is gay marriage in our temples and the continuation of their leftist indoctrination of our children. This is abortion on demand and court packing. This is give me liberty or give me death. This is about Dominion. We now know that they cheat and once they are back in power, their dominion will be over the entire world.

President Nelson has an opportunity to clarify where the Church stands, rather than leaving it to LDS politicians.

We are at the greatest crossroads our nation has perhaps ever faced. Our Constitution literally hangs by a thread.  Every freedom we hold dear is in jeopardy. Our speech and even our very ideas are already being censored and controlled. This is real. How it’s happening is beyond me, but it is happening.

Our freedom to worship is being controlled. Some in our country are still not allowed to attend Church, even after almost a year of staying home. Utah just imposed, by illegal governor decree, new stricter regulations that prevent visitors in our own homes. Sports are canceled. Masks must now be worn everywhere and by all, businesses not complying will receive a $10,000 fine per incident. What world are we living in?  And why is conservative Utah all of a sudden going the other way?  Does it have anything to do with the so-called “president-elect Joe Biden?” Is this in preparation for a new Pharoah and for his new reign? So we can “practice” getting along with the new socialist administration?

And yet, this presidential race is far from over. And every Constitution-loving soul should raise their voice and contribute to the cause in any legal, ethical way they feel inspired to!

I want to know where the dissent is among Latter-day Saints. Where is the outrage? Where is the fight? Where are the patriots who cannot, who WILL NOT let this nation be ripped from us? Are you so focused on “obeying the laws of the land” that you will let our very laws be upended? Does one obey the new “laws” under a Hitler regime? Or do you fight against them? Do you practice “diplomacy” or do you practice dissent?

So much is at stake! The promise of court-packing and added liberal states and Senators. Eliminating the electoral college. The continuation of big brother-big tech, unchecked.  Revenge enemy lists being compiled by leftists.  Social credit. The complete destruction (perhaps intentional) of our economy.  Hollywood at the helm. The DOJ and military corrupted further, weaponized to spy on and punish citizens. And every scandal we’ve seen!?… will disappear as quickly as Hillary’s emails. They will control everything and will never let go again.

This election was not just about ideas or left versus right. Democrat versus Republican. It is literally the last battle over our Gentile nation. The City on the Hill. This is not just another election where “ya win some and ya lose some.”  This was and is the most important election in American history. If it’s lost, America is gone.

Romney first republican senator to congratulate Biden - TeleTrader.com
teletrader.com Romney first Republican Senator to congratulate Biden


And yet, Mitt Romney, the Mormon Senator (not from Utah), is doing TV interview after TV interview, praising Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the winners of this uncertified, still contested election. “This election was a referendum on one man…on a personality… Trump should display grace, which he’s incapable of and make this a peaceful transition… to a good man and a woman of great character, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.” Mormon Jeff Flake even voted for Joe Biden! As is likely for Romney.  

How dare our Senator undermine our election process!?  Romney basks in the sunlight as if somehow vindicated by the media promoted, alleged Biden victory. I pray to God Romney is wrong.

Meanwhile, it’s not over by any stretch. Not so long as good people stand up and speak the truth. And the truth is, as surely the whole world suspects, this election is being stolen. This is not conspiracy talk. This is reality. And if they can succeed this time, they will succeed every time.

And by the way Senator Romney, we have a process wherein the Mainstream Media does not declare winners and losers of elections. That’s not their job and it’s sure as hell not yours.  Yes, we believe in a free press but that does not make you and them our election arbiters.  Romney’s complicity in meddling in the results of this election, I hope will never be forgotten.

Romney, as a Mormon, should know better. The Church, I pray, does not share his arrogant, shortsighted world view. Mormons have led so many great causes! Prop 8, as one example. The fight against Gay Marriage. They have stood for religious liberty! For America! For freedom!

But, has the Church lost some perspective also?  Why doesn’t it denounce Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake and Frank Fox? Has the Church become so globally focused that its allegiance to America is dissipating?  They make deals with communist nations and pay fees (bribes) to advance their cause abroad. This is a reality. I did business in China for years and I can tell you that in order to ship packages from China to the US, you have to bribe the Chinese government. Just to ship a package. Imagine what goes on to get missionaries into countries or to get meetinghouses and temples approved and built.

Has the Church become too comfortable with its ability to influence governments with its billions of dollars and with its diplomatic and legal prowess so that it’s okay with America becoming just another lost nation?  Where is the dissent from the Church? An election is being STOLEN right before our eyes! Where is your press release? Where is your statement on election integrity? On the Consitution being an inspired document? Does our Godly inspired Constitution not merit the dissent of a Church, or its leaders and its people, when crimes against it are being committed? Do you really think we can afford to let it slip away? Let others fight the good fight and we say and do nothing?

The Church’s website today, as this election is contested, and while our Constitution hangs in the balance, highlights this article:

Is this prophetic? Is this seership? Elder Oaks may want to know that #BLM tweeted this after election night, “F*ck Trump, F*ck Biden, death to America! We want something better than this trash, and we’re going to take it.” (Source)

Who is racist Elder Oaks? Them or us? Should the Church really be focused on fake racism and playing into the false liberal narrative while an election is being stolen? What do you wish to accomplish by giving them a voice? Not a mention of the election or of the Constitution. Sad.

I was on Twitter on the eve of the election last week and saw that there was a call to prayer organized by Lara Trump. Curious, I joined in. There were dozens and dozens of prominent Christian leaders, each displayed in a little Zoom box on the computer screen. Each participant took turns praying. Pleading. Begging God to bless our nation with four more years of Donald Trump. They each listed their reasons as they petitioned our Lord. The unborn children being slaughtered. The forces trying to destroy the family. To maintain our freedoms of religion and of speech and to be able to bear arms. Prayers against the lasciviousness of Hollywood and the perverse sexualization of our nation. The prayers went on for well over an hour. One could hear the sincerity of these heartfelt prayers. Some were emotional. All were passionate. There were many amens and praises to God.  I knelt down in reverence and raised my hands towards heaven in prayer with these fellow Christians I did not know. As they prayed I remarked at how different our LDS prayers are from theirs. As they finally concluded, they thanked all the Christian churches which they said included “almost all Christian faiths.” But I noticed that there were no LDS church leaders on this call. Not a single LDS prayer.

The Christians of this nation, by and large, support our President. They know that he, although imperfect, IS a fierce defender of our Constitution. He supports life. He supports freedom. He supports and loves our country. He is FOR the rule of law. I assume the LDS Church also holds these values dear, but I’m not sure they support our President. I hope and I pray BYU Professor Frank Fox is wrong. I hope the Brethren are at least secretly supporting him.

IF they are supporting him, I would suggest that now is the time to be making it clear where our Church stands! Do we stand with our fellow Christians? Can we proclaim that we will suffer death rather than give up our freedoms? Our right to defend ourselves? To worship where and how and when we choose! With all its influence in Utah, why isn’t the Church pushing to open our state rather than shut it down?

A word on this pandemic. I can say it, because I’m not a Church leader or a politician trying to keep his office. This IS NOT a PANDEMIC! AND YET, look at the freedoms we have relinquished when ONLY 230,000 people (MAYBE) have died “with” CoVid. Not 7+ million as some false prophet-fool had proclaimed. Now, I recognize that many people are vulnerable to this virus. Those people should be careful like one would with any virus or flu. The rest of us should be business as usual. We should not live in fear. We should not wear masks unless we are somehow vulnerable. I have tried to catch this virus! And as Dave Chapelle says, “It’s as hard to catch as the kid from Home Alone!” This is a plandemic, not a pandemic. I bet a dollar that this was a Chinese designed virus aimed at helping the world get rid of Trump. Call it crazy. But if you think this is a pandemic, I’m sorry, THE SCIENCE you worship simply does not support it.

Your “scientists” are the same ones counting votes in MI and PA and WI and GA and Nevada. The same scientists who created Dominion Voting Systems (interesting name). The software now in question for having potentially changed millions of votes in 28 states. The software that the Clinton Foundation has helped fund. The word dominion means to dominate, rule, or control, among other things. The Left is absolutely trying to unrighteously dominate this election. To dominate our Nation and to surrender US to the Global Society.

This is a time of great urgency. Most of us see it for what it is. This is the fight for our nation. If America goes, the world goes. Millions, if not billions will suffer and will die, IF and WHEN we lose America. The Church will not flourish under Biden and under Socialism. It will perish. The world economy will perish. Our freedom to worship will be conditioned and controlled. It is foolish to try to be friendly with a Biden Harris regime. WE MUST FIGHT AGAINST IT! There is still time!

Let us remember the words of Winston Churchill and let us DISSENT from this current trend to ACCEPT the results of a FAKE election!:

“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France (Michigan and in Pennsylvania and in Georgia and in Arizona and in Wisconsin), we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”

My words added in parantheses.

STAND UP PATRIOTS! STAND UP LATTER-DAY SAINTS! DO NOT LET THIS election be stolen! This should be our battle cry! We MUST flood the airwaves and the Internet with our VOICES! We MUST fill the streets! We MUST RALLY for the cause of AMERICA!

Zion will come, that is certain. But, we will not be worthy of Zion if we do not fight for the very system God ordained it to stem from. America and the Constitution are the templates and while Jehovah may replace it with His Kingdom, WE MUST FIGHT FOR WHAT HE HAS ALREADY ESTABLISHED. In my humble opinion. It is not a coincidence that an earthquake knocked a trump from the Angel Moroni’s lips this year, just as the Plandemic was starting and now the year ends with a Trump being robbed of our 72 million votes. The trumps are sounding and the Lord shall soon return. But to stop fighting for righteousness IS NO WAY TO PREPARE FOR HIS RETURN.

Black Lives Matter, An Eternal Principle?

BYUtv

The Church has a history of wanting to be seen as en vogue when it comes to popular political causes. The most recent example of this is Elder Dallin H. Oaks’s speech at BYU this week where he proclaims, “Black lives matter an eternal truth all reasonable people should support.”

Of course, Elder Oaks issues a few caveats that the Church doesn’t condone violence and the tearing down of statues, but to be sure that he is not just borrowing popular words to teach a different sermon, Oaks makes sure to include his disgust for the “shocking police-produced death of George Floyd in Minnesota.”

With such an extensive legal background, Elder Oaks should realize the dangers of making such bold statements, especially while the case against the police officers is still being adjudicated.

As tragic as was his death, Floyd has become a false hero in a false propaganda war intent on inciting the overthrow of our government. His death has been hijacked. His name is now being exploited for devilish purposes.

We’ve learned some things since the tragic death of Goerge Floyd that were not known at the time or withheld. None of this is intended to justify or exonerate anyone, but surely all of us should want the facts to come to light before making final judgments.

  1. George Floyd had fatal, lethal levels of fentanyl in his system (one of the reasons he was unable to breathe).
  2. Floyd said he couldn’t breathe way before he was on the ground.
  3. Floyd, who was high on drugs, asked to be put on the ground, saying he couldn’t breathe and wanted to lie down on the street.
  4. The police officers called the ambulance because they were concerned about Floyd’s mental and physical health.
  5. Floyd had a long history of violence and crime and recent arrests.
  6. The full video of the altercation with Floyd and other crucial facts to the case were intentionally kept from public view by the media.
  7. Charges against the police officers involved are being dropped or lessened because of the evidence being examined.

For these reasons and many others, Elder Oaks and the Church are unwise to condemn men who still await their day in Court. Instead of throwing fuel on the fire, the Church should be calling for law and order and justice through the normal judicial processes.

Instead, they court the Black Lives Matter banner, which as we’ve already pointed out, represents a host of evil ideas, principles, and activities that they or any “reasonable person” should want to disassociate themselves from.

The Church could instead be taking the opportunity to fight against good words being used to now mean evil things rather than legitimizing the new, reckless definitions.

Why not pick up the banner of ALL LIVES mattering? Why not use their pulpit to make this a focus on baby lives mattering? It’s a great opportunity that counters the false narrative and shows good people that we still stand up for truth, even when it’s unpopular. Of course, black lives matter — everyone knows that and should believe it. But, Black Lives Matter doesn’t value black lives, that’s for sure. Not conservative ones. Not black police officers. Not black babies. Not black youth being killed in America’s cities largely by other blacks.

What if the same logic was being used for other misleading causes? “Being pro-choice is an eternal principle. All reasonable people should support being pro-choice.” An argument could certainly be made that members of the Church believe in the freedom to choose. But, does this send a mixed message? Might this confuse people into believing that the Church is pro-abortion? Or that choice has no consequences. Add to that, the marching in pro-choice parades by the likes of prominent Church members such as Mitt Romney and statements that seemed to take the side of the wrong team, and might that send a mixed message.

How about marriage equality? “Marriage equality is an eternal principle. All reasonable people should support marriage equality.” Sure sounds nice. But again, what message does that send? Marriage equality is code for gay marriage. Another example of nice words being twisted to mean something different.

Mormons building bridges? Is this also an eternal principle? Should we join in parades where sex toys and vagina hats are part and parcel? Is everything an eternal principle if you squint at it long enough? If we legalize it?

My vote is for the Church to counter the message of the world and stop trying to appeal to everyone. The gospel message is for everyone, true, but let’s not water down our message in order to appease people who frankly hate faith in God and want to destroy the nuclear family.

Follow Up Comment I received by email, which I think makes a great point:

Saw your recent post about BLM and President Oaks talk he gave at BYU this week.  I wasn’t able to leave a comment on that post but leaving it here.  One thing you didn’t mention in the post but which strikes me as bizarre was this phrase from President Oaks Talk:  (the last sentence most specifically)

“The shocking police-produced death of George Floyd in Minnesota last May was surely the trigger for these nationwide protests, whose momentum was carried forward under the message of ‘Black Lives Matter,’” President Oaks added. “Of course, Black lives matter. That is an eternal truth all reasonable people should support. Unfortunately, that persuasive banner was sometimes used or understood to stand for other things that do not command universal support. Examples include abolishing the police or seriously reducing their effectiveness or changing our constitutional government. All these are appropriate subjects for advocacy, but not under what we hope to be the universally accepted message: Black lives matter.”

Ok so let me get this straight:
1. abolishing the police or seriously reducing their effectiveness
2.  Changing our constitutional government.

All “these” are appropriate subjects for advocacy???  President Oaks is saying the only issue with them is that they were promoted under the banner of BLM?  But if we don’t put them under that banner…. they are then appropriate subjects for advocacy?  Changing our constitutional government?  Really?

I’m so confused.
