Police: You’re on Your Own

Several years ago, I predicted that the hatred toward police in cities controlled by liberal mayors would create a reality where cops sit in the squad cars eating donuts while the city burns. This obvious conclusion has become reality. Businesses are being robbed in clear view of on-duty police units.

Seattle police chief Carmen Best is upset over the forced inability of officers to control crime. After two months of nightly riots, aided and abetted by a super-liberal mayor that only cares about using her city’s suffering to make President Trump look like the problem, the Seattle City Council passed an ordinance forbidding officers to use “less-than-lethal” tools to quell extremely violent rioting that has been taking place in the city.

The Seattle police chief informed business owners that they are on their own against rioters. The city council has tied her hands. The police no longer have the tools to combat mob violence.

The situation in Seattle has long since spun out of control and may be heading toward the point of no return. Best wrote in a letter admitting that the police aren’t going to be able to help people calling for rescue during the nightly riots. If your store is being broken into and looted or someone has set your warehouse on fire, that’s pretty much tough luck. There’s no point in sending the first responders out to try to help if they’re only going to have their access blocked and likely be attacked themselves in the process.

It appears that we truly are reaching the point of just sitting back and letting it burn. We can only hope that the innocent and the law-abiding can find a way to safely get out. If this cancer of lawlessness spreads all over the nation, there may eventually be no place to find safety.

Some citizens have begun patrols to police their local streets. A city needs an active police force to prevent crime over the whole urban area. A group of people with guns may make a few residential areas safe. If mobs are allowed to loot and burn down a shopping center a couple blocks away, the quality of life will still decline for everyone.

The ‘defund the police’ movement has caused gun sales to soar to record highs. In June 2020, over 1.5 million handguns were sold in the United States. In June 2020, handgun sales in the United States grew by 177.5 percent when compared to the same period in the previous year.

Another sign that people are concerned about the breakdown of civil order is a high price for gold and silver. Last week, gold reached an all-time record high of $1,982 per ounce, surpassing the old record set in 2011. Silver reached a high of $26.20 per ounce; not a record, but it jumped $4 in a three-day period.

Some people have suggested that we allow all these liberal-controlled cities to defund their police so they can learn a lesson from their bad judgment. Unfortunately, liberals don’t learn from their mistakes. They follow up a bad decision with one that is worse. The history of Detroit is a good example. As the city rotted from one socialist program, they replaced it with one that was even more reliant on Soviet-style thinking.

We are currently at the point where the police need to be extremely cautious about the use of deadly force involving a suspect. I think the day will come when the police will be free to use all the tools needed to restore order. There were people who welcomed the Iranian Revolution because they didn’t like how the Shah of Iran was restricting their ability to express their views. Some of these same people found out quickly how much worse it was to speak their mind under an Islamic government.

Most people who read this site see the police in a positive light and abhor the idea of Antifa or Black Lives Matter setting up roadblocks in their community. It is scary to think that this madness may come to every street in America. All believers can take comfort that the threat is a clear sign that the rapture is very near.

“And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved” (Matthew 24:12-13).

 Bringing up the Beast

Planet earth is undergoing a “reset” of observable dimension, as the term “reset” is used by secular pundits. “Stage-setting” is the term we biblical prophecy watchers use to describe the things taking place at a phenomenal pace. In both cases—secular and biblical—the “reset” or “stage-setting” has undeniably accelerated to quantum speed since the American presidential election of 2016.

Secular observers see the dynamic changes taking place as ideological transformation that occurs cyclically—like seasonal weather patterns that can bring great, destructive storms. From the biblical view, the “reset,” the “stage-setting,” is heading in one direction, and for a singular purpose. Movement at such a swift pace is being employed by evil’s master strategist to bring to the world stage his final and most terrible tyrant of human history.

It’s more than interesting, I notice, that those coming from the secular standpoint more and more use the word “beast” to describe this rise of powers in opposition to traditional Western cultural, societal, political, and religious norms. To my thinking, this is yet another proof that God’s Word is truth. Even those who would no doubt gag at the thought that they were validating anything from the Bible can’t help contributing to the outcomes foretold thousands of years ago.

I recently received an email containing an interesting article related to this. My thanks to Nancy, who apparently reads these commentaries.

The writer of the article Nancy sent seems to have no biblical knowledge as he gets into things going on in the “reset.” While his article would be considered conspiracy-laden by those in most news media, the author—despite not knowing Bible prophecy, so far as I can tell—lays out well what is likely behind the scenes in Lucifer bringing the beast to power.

Again, it’s the writer’s use of the word “beast” that is most interesting. He makes no reference throughout his article to the beast of Revelation 13, yet that beast is the very entity to which he unwittingly is referring.

Here is the beginning of the article. I highly recommend that you read the entire piece.

Imagine, you are living in a world that you are told is a democracy – and you may even believe it – but in fact your life and fate is in the hands of a few ultra-rich, ultra-powerful and ultra-inhuman oligarchs. They may be called Deep State, or simply the Beast, or anything else obscure or untraceable – it doesn’t matter. They are less than the 0.0001%.

For lack of a better expression, let’s call them for now “obscure individuals”.

These obscure individuals who pretend running our world have never been elected. We don’t need to name them. You will figure out who they are, and why they are famous, and some of them totally invisible. They have created structures, or organisms without any legal format. They are fully out of international legality. They are a forefront for the Beast. Maybe there are several competing Beasts. But they have the same objective: A New or One World Order (NWO, or OWO).

These obscure individuals are running, for example, The World Economic Forum (WEF – representing Big Industry, Big Finance and Big Fame), the Group of 7 – G7, the Group of 20 – G20 (the leaders of the economically” strongest” nations). There are also some lesser entities, called the Bilderberg Society, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Chatham House and more.

The members of all of them are overlapping. Even this expanded forefront combined represents less than 0.001%. They all have superimposed themselves over sovereign national elected and constitutional governments, and over THE multinational world body, the United Nations, the UN…

Co-opted or created by the Beast(s) are also, the European Union, the Bretton Woods Organizations, World Bank and IMF, as well as the World Trade Organization (WTO) – and – make no mistake – the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. It has no teeth. Just to make sure the law is always on the side of the lawless.

In fact, they have co-opted the UN to do their bidding.  (Peter Koening, “The Deep State,” The Global Reset – Unplugged. July 24, 2020,

As addressed in this column before, many are already falling under the delusion being foisted by those whom this secular-oriented author calls “beasts.”  Koening further relates:

The supremacy of these obscure unelected individuals becomes ever more exposed. We, the People consider it “normal” that they call the shots, not what we call – or once were proud of calling, our sovereign nations and sovereignty elected governments. They have become a herd of obedient sheep. The Beast has gradually and quietly taken over. We haven’t noticed. It’s the salami tactic: You cut off slice by tiny slice and when the salami is gone, you realize that you have nothing left, that your freedom, your civil and human rights are gone. By then it’s too late. Case in point is the US Patriot Act. It was prepared way before 9/11. Once 9/11 “happened”, the Patriot Legislation was whizzed through Congress in no time – for the people’s future protection – people called for it for fear – and – bingo, the Patriot Act took about 90% of the American population’s freedom and civil rights away. For good.

We have become enslaved to the Beast. The Beast calls the shots on boom or bust of our economies, on who should be shackled by debt, when and where a pandemic should break out, and on the conditions of surviving the pandemic, for example, social confinement. And to top it all off – the instruments the Beast uses, very cleverly, are a tiny-tiny invisible enemy, called a virus, and a huge but also invisible monster, called FEAR. That keeps us off the street, off reunions with our friends, and off our social entertainment, theatre, sports, or a picnic in the park. (Ibid.)

It’s beginning to be more understandable how the beast of Revelation 13 will have little trouble ascending the steps of the platform that Satan’s globalist minions are in overdrive preparing for when the Church leaves this world.
