Greetings from Tyler,

The Bible tells of a period of mass deception that will characterize the last days.  Many wonder, particularly in this Internet era where there’s been an explosion of available information, how such a thing could be possible.  How on earth could the whole world, save the “very elect” be conned into accepting, and acting upon a false and fraudulent premise?

Recent history provides one incredibly glaring example in Germany, but everybody freaks out whenever it’s cited, because (the argument goes) there’s simply nothing which justifies invoking the Nazis.  However, we are living through the exposure of fraud on the part of supposedly incorruptible institutions.  Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity, are on the F. B. I. institutional Seal, and are supposed to guarantee equal treatment under the law and blind justice.  That is a basic part of the foundation of a system that guarantees liberty in the United States of America.

If the “Untouchables” can defraud Federal Judges to spy on opponents and undermine an election of a duly elected President, then the whole thing collapses.  It went on wholesale in the Soviet Union and in the eastern bloc nations they controlled.   Their media reported as they were ordered.  People had to parrot government propaganda to survive.  It is chilling, to say the very least, to see how close we came to the same situation.  Imagine for a moment how things would have transpired if not for the shocking, miraculous outcome in the election of 2016.  The fraud would have succeeded.  The conspirators would still be running the most powerful institutions of law enforcement on earth.  The media would be backing them, deceiving the public without consequence instead of being exposed as they are today.  Not that they’ll admit it, they never concede a point even when their face is rubbed in undeniable truth.

And that may be as big a revelation as anything else we are learning.  The mainstream media was (and still is) part of the conspiracy!  False information was leaked to the media by the conspirators in charge of fearsome agencies, and then the reports they instigated were taken before a Judge to bolster the legitimacy of their need for surveillance.  It was a circular echo chamber, and the mainstream media has been a willing accomplice to perhaps the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on U. S. citizens, and by extension, the whole world.  Now it’s exposed.

Do you think for one minute that the media will recant its more than a year of fraudulent reports?  Not a chance.  Not yet anyway.  But they’re being forced to play defense for a change.  The “heroes” they were counting on to impeach a president have been proven to be dirty.  They defrauded a secret court (FISA) to frame a candidate and a campaign.  No doubt they figured that even if the Russia Collusion thing didn’t work out, they’d undoubtedly find some other criminal intent or activity if they were able to listen in on meetings, phone conversations, read e-mails and texts etc.  Surely, they’d get something scandalous or illegal.  But alas, they didn’t.  They’ve only been able to charge a couple of “process crimes” (General Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort) that would never have existed had they not had the ability to eavesdrop, spy and then interrogate to find a discrepancy.  Then they brought the full weight of the threat of prison time to achieve a plea of guilty in exchange for cooperation.

Sources and methods.  That, they tell us, is why the intelligence community has kept criminality at the highest levels concealed.  We found out years ago, when the reviled Snowden ruined his life by releasing massive amounts of data and had to flee the U. S. for Russia or wherever he is languishing.

It just wouldn’t do if the public found out that anyone with a security clearance has access to the NSA database, which has apparently been stockpiling every communication, domestic and foreign, phone calls, e-mails and texts.  Apparently, anyone with Top Secret clearance, including the employees of contractors, can pull up everything on anybody.  The fact that there are hundreds, perhaps thousands of individuals who can abuse that capability is information that simply must not be public, even though it’s the worst kept secret ever.  Therefore, much that should be known and released for public consumption must remain hidden.  Sources and methods must not be compromised!  Odd, nothing in today’s release has anything to do with national security, even though that was used as the reason it should never see the light of day.

But here’s the real kicker, and if you’ve paid close attention you may already have figured this out.  The reason Hillary Clinton HAD to be exonerated in the case of trafficking in classified information outside approved government systems is that the former President was communicating with her over her private server using an alias.  If she was found guilty, he would be too.  That may well be one of the places all this is headed.  He may have been aware, if not involved, in the perpetration of the whole scam.  Betcha we find out eventually.

The mainstream outlets can continue to play dumb, and probably will.  They’ve run out of confused, perplexed looks to get on their faces.  They spent weeks calling Trump crazy and a liar when he said his “wires were tapped.”  But they’ve wasted more than a year of their lives, stoking the hopes of angry progressives who mourned the outcome of the 2016 election, and spent nearly every minute of airtime promoting one fake story after another.  They relied on “highly placed anonymous sources” for the great bulk of their so called “reporting” and have been burned so many times we’ve lost count.

The sources for all the fake news that have fueled headlines and excited predictions of an imminent impeachment may very well have been the disgraced turncoats who have been found to have used every trick in the book, first to change the outcome of a presidential election, and then to abort a presidency before it could succeed.

The fact that Trump won the presidency, not just against the best efforts of his opponent, but in spite of a hostile media, fake polls, fake news and dozens of respected analysts who said he was a lunatic who was unfit, unhinged and conspired with “the Russians” to steal the presidency, is nothing short of a miracle.  That 2017 was a banner year in so many ways, in spite of the 24/7 impeachment drumbeat is another.  Many more are in store, as the hotly debated Memo is but the first salvo in an arsenal of revelations that will undoubtedly expose and embarrass a bevy of household names.  Embarrassment may be the least of their worries.

One of the Big Ten, as many refer to God’s Commandments, is in play.  The ninth Commandment states, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.”  It doesn’t just say you shouldn’t lie, though that’s indicated too.  It says bear false witness against, and that is precisely what has been going on in the top echelon of American institutions of law.  Former Director Comey is known for tweeting Bible passages, but these are not among them.  Listed among seven things God hates are, “An proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood.  A heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief.  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”  Looks like the Proverbs (6:17….) have ramifications for this life as well as the next!  Have a wonderful Sabbath,

After news of the trashing by senior, sanctimonious and possibly odious, law enforcement officers in the US Justice Department and FBI you might need some good news. Here is a sermon by Garner Ted Armstrong titled “The BIG Picture”. It will cheer you up.
