As with every anniversary of the deadly events of September 11, 2001, we will likely be inundated this week with a plethora of articles on the heroes from that day and those that gave their lives that others might live. Though we, as a nation, will never forget the events of that day and the impact it had on our nation, we need look no further than the disaster that struck recently in South Texas, and the events now unfolding throughout Florida and the Southeast to understand that it is a remarkable part of the American spirit to face adversity with a steadfast courage and open heart for those in need. Though I write this article on this, the 16th anniversary of that day in 2001, I am not going to write about those events, the controversy surrounding it, or even about the events of the most recent natural disasters in our country. I prefer to write about my own experience, and those of my family, to illustrate the point that I will make at the conclusion of this article.
One of the effects that we see playing out before us, whether on our TV screens or on the streets of this nation, of the long term and incremental destruction of the traditional family unit and model is the loss of what I refer to as the wisdom chain within our families. The wisdom chain is what I term the old model that was once prominent in America, and still is in some other cultures, of three generations of a family living together. Sometimes this came in the form of actually inhabiting the same home, and sometimes just in the form of regular gatherings. It is a model in which the grandparents acted as the patriarchs and matriarchs of the family, the holders of wisdom. The parents were the provider generation, providing for both the children and the grandparents who were now too old to work. Lastly, there were the children who were the benefactors of both the wisdom of the grandparents and the provision of the parents. This wisdom chain worked to provide for the passing down of the wisdom of the elder generation and instilling in the youngest generation the values and morals that they would need when assuming their position as the provider generation, and then eventually they would pass their wisdom on once they had moved into the role as patriarchs and matriarchs of their own families.
Brothers and sisters, I humbly come before you with these words of warning, of a possible, and some would even say probable, disaster that is being prepared for the people of the United States. While I say this, I want to also be clear that I do not know for sure that it will come to pass, but as you will deduce, not only are elements of this plan already being put into motion – and have been in motion for some time – but certain elements have been staged for a very real threat that could bring this country to its knees within moments and in a manner through which would take our country unawares. It is a threat that would never need a single shot fired by our enemies, but the people themselves will destroy the nation for them, and then beg for foreign troops to restore order. I do not write these words to strike fear into anyone, but simply as a warning that you, dear reader, might prepare yourself for the eventuality. Do not be fooled – those that mock our Lord are not our friends and the communists openly mock the Most High. For this reason, do not believe that the communist Chinese are our allies or friends – they are deceivers and deception is a tool of the enemy.
May the Lord turn the weapons of our enemies against them, and lay low those that seek the destruction of our nation. Though many be turned from and cut off from Him in these days of turmoil within our country, may He remember the faithful and hear their pleas for time to restore our republic! – Sgt Tim
We live in a truly wondrous age, do we not? A time when people can speak not just across a room or city, but across continents, seeing their counterpart in live video feed with hardly any delay whatsoever. We can order goods within the comfort of our home that will not only be delivered, but in some cases, will be delivered to your doorstep within a matter of minutes to hours. We can communicate ideas through audio, video, and even print media that can be distributed across a multitude of platforms, and in today’s age, we can even earn a living doing nothing but communicating those ideas and our opinions.
Of course, there are dangers. The internet is a wonderful tool for learning and communication, but it also leaves vulnerabilities as those that understand the use of it and the technology behind it can easily intercept, gather, store, and manipulate the information for their own ends. And in a world that is growing ever closer, with not only communications flying around the world on the internet, but also a dependency by countries in an interwoven economic structure on the internet, and with the infrastructure of whole nations depending upon the internet for ensuring the public safety – it leaves a gaping security situation that is ripe for the picking for an adversary. And this is exactly what could almost be called a prophetic book on military strategy in the 21st century pointed out…

Over the past few years, the United States has experienced an increase in the number of civil unrest incidents. From the protests turned violent in Ferguson to this past weekend’s events at UC Berkley, it seems that the fabric of these once United States is coming undone and fraying at the ends. With articles like this one from the Associated Press, with its more subtle hints, to the out and out hit pieces in the mainstream media – not just on President Trump but on the conservative right as a whole – the press is pushing the idea that people are in a state of unease over the actions of our new president and the political climate in general. In truth, by raw numbers, perhaps there is need to be uneasy, but the truth is that across the country, something far more sinister is at work here, and has been at work for many years to get us where we are now. I ask you to bear with me to the end of this article, and to hang in there, as I have come to understand that my thinking is not always linear on these topics, and for some of you, this may take you further down the rabbit hole than you have ever been…
