The feel-good religion of the Light Side apparently consists in little more than muddleheaded platitudes about hope and change.
Usually, Hollywood writers leave their intellectual influences implicit in the script: “follow your dreams,” “be true to yourself,” “question authority,” “don’t conform,” and a million other clichés. You know the ideology: it’s present in just about every Hollywood movie, especially those made after 1970.
Shortly after Donald Trump’s win, however, two “Rogue One” writers made the relationship between their political ideology and their product explicit. One tweeted, “Please note that the Empire is a white supremacist (human) organization.” Another responded: “Opposed by a multicultural group led by brave women.” Since then, some opponents of Trump have taken to calling themselves “the Resistance.”
Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
Colossians 3:19 KJV
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:1-4 KJV
As those of you that are long-time readers or have looked over the archives of some of my previous writing know, my father passed away 2 years ago, this past fall. When I was on my way back from an extended overseas tour in Germany 2 years prior to that, he was in the hospital and it didn’t look like he was going to make it out. I had just checked into my new unit and immediately went on leave to travel to North Texas to be at his side. I didn’t even change out of my uniform before the 6-hour drive, just wanting to get there all the faster – and besides, I figured the old man would get a kick out seeing me in my uniform. That is one of those very surreal moments in the life of a person – seeing the man that you literally thought was a super-hero like Super Man, humbled, lying in a hospital bed, weak, and seemingly on his last legs. He didn’t think he was going to make it out of that bed, either, and we spent that first night sitting up, talking.
In the week since the last update I have appeared on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report as well as Remnant Radio Network.

It’s a busy time here, so stay up to date with everything that we’re releasing by following us on WordPress, iTunes, Gab, Steemit, Spreaker, and YouTube!
Now, without further delay, back to the economics materials. What a first week for President Trump. Even his most entrenched opponents must admit that this is a man of action and a man of his word thus far. If this pace keeps up, then we won’t recognize the world by the end of the year. Let’s see how the manufacturing and trade trajectories begin to shift over the first couple quarters of 2017. The final manipulated data is in on Obama’s tenure, and even with the ridiculously suppressed inflation numbers he became the first president not to have a single year of 3.0% GDP growth. I guess they couldn’t fake it that blatantly without rendering too much of a disconnect to keep the narrative in check. That is one aspect of his legacy that Trump can’t shred. One additional observation is that when average GDP growth figures for Obama are stated, the contraction in 2009 drags the rest of it down. I prefer the statistic about never hitting 3.0% because it is more illustrative.
“A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever: But thou, Lord, art most high for evermore.” Psalm 92:6-8 KJV
While the MSM disinformation doctors cook up their narrative(s) American Christians, constitutionalists and patriots are waiting with baited breath for the January 20, 2017 Inauguration of Forty Fifth President of the United States, Donald J Trump.
