Preparedness Notes for Monday — May 27, 2019

I’ll start with a bit of breaking EU election news, from England:

  • The newly-formed Brexit Party +31.2%
  • Labour: – 11.9%
  • Liberal Democrat +11.1%
  • Conservative: -12.5%
  • UKIP: -23.9% (Nearly all having apparently jumped to the Brexit Party)
  • Others (Greens, Etc.):  +10.4

That is an astounding result, for a party that didn’t even exist, two months ago!

I hope that the new national government that is formed following Teresa May’s imminent ouster gets the message from the voters: Quit fiddling around, and make a hard Brexit!

On this extended weekend, we honor Memorial Day, a day of solemn remembrance in the U.S. of the many who have given their all for our freedoms. We always thank those who are serving in our military and their families who have also made sacrifices, but today most of all we want to honor those who gave their lives. Consider: Just a Common Soldier

On May 27, 1861, Chief Justice Roger B. Taney of Maryland issued Ex parte Merryman, challenging the authority of President Abraham Lincoln and the U.S. military to suspend the writ of habeas corpus in Maryland.

And on May 27, 1813, former President Thomas Jefferson wrote former President John Adams about the loss of their mutual friend, Dr. Benjamin Rush. Reflecting upon the loss, Jefferson wrote, “We too must go; and that ere long. I believe we are under half a dozen at present; I mean the signers of the Declaration.”

Dr. Rush was instrumental in the reconciliation of Jefferson and Adams by initiating correspondence between the three of them. Both Jefferson and Adams continued to correspond until their deaths on July 4th, 1826– the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, which all three had signed in 1776.

  1. I hate to state the obvious and this will tick many survivalist women off, but a woman’s role is in the family as Helpmate under the spiritual authority of her husband. [God’s word says so]. Has anything significant ever come from women leaders in government, church, university, or your corporation? Theresa May needs to get moving on down the road.. she failed too many times. Angela Merkel of Germany is another one after recanting on her position of open borders-she realizes she has injured Germany letting in so many migrants. The Republicans who voted to keep Obamacare were all female [except one, John McCain].

    1. Empress Adelheid
      Empress Theophanu
      Catherine the Great
      Elizabeth I
      Margarethe Atterdag
      Petra Roth
      Mary Anne Patten
      St Mother Teresia
      Hildegard von Bingen
      Mary Ward
      Black Agnes
      Sichelgaita
      Angela Merkel
      Top of my head

      So Angela Merkel injured Germany because she followed the Grundgesetz and not Breaking her oath of office, Show me !

      1. @Tho

        The American housewife of the 1950s supersedes these women. My point is that God ordained a woman for a certain role and a man for another role. Not that a woman can never neglect her role and become great in a man’s role.

        There’s just to much tragedy in America placing a woman in a man’s role. The corporate lawsuits into the trillions, abortions [70-million per year worldwide], divorces-no parents in the home, male terminations through corporate policy [look at another Navy commander losing his post last week for women complaining about gender discrimination as the first batch of females on a submarine duty] (in fact the US military has lost more commanders, Colonels, Generals, and high ranking officers due to women and their gender equality bandwagon removing them from their post–not a foreign enemy taking down these men but American women.], and male incarceration due to relationship crimes.

        Tho, its nice to know that a minute group of women can do great things in a man’s role, but to incorporate all women into men, and we are against God’s will! We are paying the price today. If women would go back to their God given role we wouldn’t have these problems in America especially in the public schools.

        1. The American housewife of the 50s, who wasn´t even a blink in the eye of recorded history, supersedes These Woman how?
          Supersede a Doctor of the church, founder of a monastery, founder of an order of Nuns, rulers of an empire, a ship captains wife, Defender of her home and protector of her People

          If any Military superior discriminates one of his soldiers, he deserves to be dishonorable discharged at the absolute minimum- because he has shown in this case he is a dishonorable man and an oathbreaker.
          I wouldn´t want him as an superior nor would i want to share the mess with him, least of all i wanted to serve with him under fire.

      2. ThoDan,

        To answer your question on Merkel. Any oath of office taken to uphold stupid, needs to be broken. There are many instances in the Old Testament where God calls the Israelites to form a nation with distinct boundaries and even to attack other heathen nations. There’s a wall around the New Jerusalem with defined twelve gates–there’s a pass code to get into that New Heaven and that is Jesus. No where does God want us to have open borders even if we take an oath. That is an oath to Beelzebub. Any oath we take to the Devil, God commands us to break it and follow Him. Open borders and no boundaries in life is moral relativism and of the Devil.

        1. No, the oath of Office of the german chancelor of the FRG needed never to and never should be broken.

          The Grundgesetz is in These cases clear, and gods word in the old Testament that you should welcome fugitives in your community is also clear, as well as his word About love your brother in New Testament.

          1. Tho Dan, here is a quote from Deuteronomy that will support your point: .
            17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.
            18 He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.
            19 And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.

            Carry on

    The GFA is broken with a hard Brexit, that is an eat and keep their cake Problem but the Clock is ticking England and we europeans don´t find your Theater any longer entertaining and the cost getting a bit to high.

  3. IMHO women are equal to men in everything except upper body strength. The problem that I see in politics and activism is that the large majority of women prefer a more traditional role in life while most of the women choosing politics or activism are the more radical women. Thus we get things like Obama care punishment of men via Title IX, 3rd trimester abortion and a lust for infanticide and open borders, etc. Our Republic would be better and safer if our leaders/politicians were selected from the telephone book and served one term in office. I say this because all too often politicians seek the office to further their own cause or to steal from the public. And for reasons stated above this seems to be more the rule for female politicians than for male politicians.

  4. @Thodan, the examples you cite attained that stature by merit, if it were not so, you would not know their names. And you forgot Ruth. Merit and forced communistic equality are NOT the same thing. In fact, they are the exact opposite. Nothing good comes of breaking God’s created order. And can you cite the versus from the Holy Bible where God told the tribes to allow foreigners into the camps and cities please? Where does our LORD tell us to live among the heathen and not to avoid intermarrying and taking on their pagan religions, and to not beware the barbarous? Do educate us? We, even under the New Covenant, a blood covenant, are called out to be a separate people, to go into the world for the purposes of spreading the Gospel of our LORD, Profit, Priest, Messiah, King Jesus seated at the right hand of the Father, a position of Judgment.

    At every turn, Jesus, having the opportunity to do something social, something meaningful to change a poor person or beggar’s life, offered salvation and not a place to live without cost or free food and although He healed many, it was a sign unto the tribes as he did not set up universal healthcare, no, he healed many, but, at scale it was only a few. Even when He had compassion on the 4k and the 5k to feed them he didn’t say; Ok, see y’all back here tomorrow for more free stuff. No, the mission of Christ is the saving Grace of the realization of His salvation. Being overrun by barbarians is plain stupid, as history is replete with examples, including those in the Old Testament as God warns not to allow this. But please, do tell us how the destruction of western civilization would be the will of God, keeping in mind that God never contradicts His word? Well, that last question is rhetorical. The only reason God would want the destruction of our civilization is because he loves us so very much that this lesson is paramount to our understanding that He must not be disobeyed, will not have His Revealed Law, and Natural Law broken without consequence. You will not be coddled into social enlightenment and safety. You may not simply allow women and children to rule you. You may not allow women to kill 70 million of your nation’s most precious resource, it’s next generation, and get away with it by calling it, democratic rule, fairness, equality. No, God will not be mocked.

    “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”

    the man is supposed to:
    1. Die to save her life
    2. Be a type of Christ for her
    3. Be both submitted to God yet the leader of the Tribe simultaneously
    4. Love his wife as much as Christ loves him (that’s a command of Holy God not some school girl’s notional value of love)
    5. Sacrifice everything for her
    6. Ensure the family is upright before a wrathful God
    7. Be sinless, spotless, and above reproach and keep you the same
    8. And he must sacrifice, unto God, everything that he wants so that his family will thrive

    (A smart woman reads these versus and thinks; bingo, I’ve found the key, the tools to drive and inspire my man to greatness, leading our family to prosper in all that we do, and indeed you have as your man MUST fulfill these duties unto holy God, for you. These, at a base level, direct all that he wants for you.)

    God made men to work, protect, hunt, build, and make hard decisions to ensure the survival of the Nation. God made women to help men, to nurture, gather, encourage and yes, especially to inspire. These traits of women are not belittling to mention. This notion is absurd and frankly, brainwashing. Women are necessary to the proper raising of children, and maintaining a family and critical to nurturing that familial relationship without which all of society falls apart. And while they are building their careers society is indeed falling apart. But these qualities are not for and do not translate into making hard leadership decisions such as repelling invasion or killing. These wonderful traits of a woman are the very converse. These attributes of women are of holy God, on purpose and by design. To attempt to redesign the bimodal symmetry of men and women into some fashion that fits a notion of a godless world is an affront to the Natural Law and a rebuke of the LORD himself by the unholy and misguided followers of evil. Again, God will not be mocked.

      That is only a List of names i remembered the Moment i read her post and i can´t believe Marie Curie wasn´t one of them.

      Nothing good can come from enforcing human idolatry as gods given order, and i doubt a moment in one Country counts more than the entire recorded human history.

      Matthew

      And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,6 you did it to me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

      Civilizations ´ve come and gone since Gilgamesh build the walls of Uruk and men built Mohenjo Darro, Ozymandias we´re heirs of Sumer, achämenid persia and greece via rome

      Woman´ve worked besides men and alone since the dawn of humanity, they´ve fought and died in wars or faced other fates.
      Toiled the fields, toiled in the Workshops, bled in Combat, sacrificed their lives for their faith, Family and fellow men , defended their families with spear, axe, Sword, Shield and firearm, piloted unarmed planes under enemy threat, drove ambulances and Rescue under bombardment, built houses from rubble – captained ships under storm and unruly Crew.

      Not Repelling invasions and killing – tell that Black Agnes and her Sisters, who defended their Castles against attack or Sichelgaita and St Joan who led Knights into Combat, empress Barbara who defended herself with Shield and Lance and the many cases Woman did such Things unrecorded.

      Rember if you see a naginata, it was the weapon female Samurai protected hearth and home with

      In the Depression Woman weren´t to seldom the only breadwinner for their Family in the US, in WWII they build the Tools of war for the allies.
