    Maybe next year.

    I loved this guy when his video first hit, but recalled something about him being arrested later for the event or some similar anit-covid lockdown stance. So, I looked him up just now and he’s a raging Jesus Freak. Wikipedia has it that he’s a political activist with ALL KINDS OF ANTI POPULAR political stances. I mean he doesn’t abide by homosexuality, or vaccines (I think he was a little ahead of the curve on that stance) and (sit down for this one) he’s pro-Israel. He actually preaches in the streets!

    As Bob Dylan has said, anyway they want you, that’s the way you’ll be. Take any stand for Jesus, and/or any stand against the political zeitgeist, and you will be thrown under a bus, then dragged behind the bus by your feet over sharp gravel. looks like he’s an effective looney religiouso! His friend was fired for not wanting to drive a public bus with a gay rainbow on it! He’s actually got followers!

    Earlier I asked what would follow after the Coof goes to absolute zero. Now I can see better: environment, Marx, and now if you allow your Christian beliefs into the public square, you’re headed for the camps.

    Great respect for this man. He was arrested later in the year. Yes, they are Nazis and they should go home and be ashamed of themselves for snuffing out the freedom in the free world.

      Since when did agents of the Deep State, whether in the US or any nation, show the slightest shame? Indeed, they revel in their actions and ridicule those who come out against them. The persistent ones who defy them will have their lives and families destroyed through public humiliation, economic ruin and prison. In much of the world it is against the law to believe in Christ. We were told by the Carpenter Himself that this day would come. And so it has.

      Jesus commanded His disciples to buy a sword (Luke 22:36). What are swords used for?

        Full agreement. Merry Christmas to you, the site host, and all the other readers.

    That Pastor has more integrity and spinal strength than most people in the County I live in. When confronted by bravery and honesty the cowards back off. Especially when being video recorded. As this commie takeover matures, more brave souls will step up and do as this man did. I know I will not live forever and in fact am at the threshold of death. Don’t push my buttons to test me creeps.

    Canada is gone!, stick a fork in it. Sold to the highest bidder.

    Semi auto weapon forced turn ins are underway in places. We’re not far behind.

    Your US Govt is scared shitless of regular Americans, who’ve been pushed to far. Their moves are calculated to “ just nibble” change a word here, and their, wordsmith stuff just enough to change the meaning.

    What’s amusing is,,,,, they think we’re scared of and respect law enforcement. My fights not with law enforcement, it’s with the motherfuckers who understand exactly what their doing to harm this wonderful nation, intentionally.


    • Mike Austin December 24, 2021, 2:37 AM

      Canada has been gone for some time. It has become illegal there to quote Scripture in a public forum or in the media. In the US any attorney who uses the Bible in a criminal case creates grounds for a mistrial.

      The current US government is indeed afraid of half the citizenry. Thus, it is desperate to seize our firearms through any possible means. This leads Americans to buy more firearms, which increases the fear in the Deep State, which leads to more buying of firearms—and so on. The position of the government is untenable—and it shows. It has begun to act like a cornered animal—which it is.

    I just read a moving piece on PJ Media, “We All Need To Be Christmas Warriors,” by Rabbi Michael Barclay. Please take a look.

    • Mike Austin December 24, 2021, 2:42 AM

      If every true Christian acted like the warrior Christ intends him to be, there would be no Deep State. Schools would actually teach, police would actually enforce the law, politicians would actually serve the people, and the media would actually respect the truth.

  • Sisu December 23, 2021, 7:46 PM

    I must admit, my anger is equal; but I would not have the self control to avoid intemperate language. I learned from this man: self control (which I once had but have lost; also my ability to “posture” is not applicable). I am afraid; that I might lose my life before having maximum effect.

    “A Global Coup Has Been Carried Out Across the World – Has Destroyed the Very Foundations of the Rule of Law” – Archbishop Vigano’s Message to America (Transcript and Audio)

    An astounding Christmas message from one of the remaining moral lights in the Catholic Church.


    • Mike Austin December 24, 2021, 2:12 AM

      I am a cradle Catholic and a supporter of the Latin Mass. Archbishop Vigano is among the—at most—ten percent of the Catholic hierarchy that actually believes what the Church teaches. The remainder of all the priests, bishops and cardinals—and anti-pope “Francis” included—are either heretics, weaklings or sexual degenerates or a combination of all three. They neither believe in God nor in Hell. At the moment of their death they will believe in both.

      • Rob De Witt December 24, 2021, 8:56 AM

        Mike Austin,

        A very conservative (and like you cradle Catholic) friend introduced me to orthodox Catholicism over 15 years ago, and along the way to the writings of John Paul II, Josef Pieper, Thomas Aquinas – who rang every bell with his acknowledged indebtedness to the Stoics – and her latest obsession J. Budziszewski. She even convinced me, during my life’s most recent cataclysm (which saw me fall from an apartment in Sausalito to a 28-foot trailer behind a house outside of Santa Rosa,) to attend a Republican party meeting just to get out of the house.

        I’m almost totally non-social, and the room full of politicos didn’t amuse; nonetheless one of the speakers riveted my attention with a talk on Roman politics. Afterwards I told him I was in need of something to get my teeth into and asked whether he had any suggestions – whereupon he invited me to a class he taught, which turned out to be Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.

        We read and discussed the entire Catechism, which proved to be the most robust philosophical argument I’ve ever encountered. I sat with it for several months, and committed to Confirmation on May 1, 2011, two weeks after my 66th birthday – and, I later discovered, the date of Pope John Paul II’s Beatification. Life remains very difficult indeed, and my gratitude for my Catholicism is part of my daily prayers.

        I am, have been and intend to be again if/when my current bodily woes get fixed somewhat, a self-taught singer, a lifelong gift given me in compensation for the mess I was born into. “Self-taught,” by the way, means I’m the only Bach soloist I’ve ever encountered who can yodel. Like I say, a gift to me. My most recent career was as a paid alternate to the Bass section leader – among conservatory-trained union musicians – at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, seat of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone. Look him up, he’s a beauty, and absolutely inspires apoplexy among the locals. I sang for his installation, and I’ve more than once shaken his hand and expressed my admiration and gratitude for his work and life. I’ve never seen Nancy Pelosi at one of his Masses, by the way.


        There are true Catholics, even in Lynn Woolsey’s former Congressional District where I live, characterized by the Congressional Record as “The leftmost county in America.” My Catechism teacher and Confirmation sponsor, still a friend, has said to me “If I wasn’t a Catholic I’d be insane,” which pretty much puts it in a nutshell for me.

        God bless us every one.

        • Mike Austin December 24, 2021, 3:50 PM

          Really, Rob, an astounding witness. And so it is: If we weren’t Catholic, we’d be insane. Which of course explains the world as we know it today.

          Father Cordileone is one of the good guys, on of the few good men left. When blasphemers and sexual degenerates complained that he fostered “an atmosphere of division and intolerance”, I recalled that Jesus did as well. The modern world is all about tolerance; Christianity is not about tolerance at all. It is about guiding souls away from Hell to Heaven. Sometimes a man needs a kick is his gut to get the message.

          A Bach soloist who yodels? What is the world coming to!

      • Dirk December 24, 2021, 3:38 PM

        Cradle Catholic, me to born, in minutes baptized . And I’m still pissed off about it. I rip my Mom every time she calls. Matters of one’s religion are a private matter, one’s personal choice must be well thought out.

        It’s frustrating, all denominations I’ve spent time with were horribly flawed. At least the peeps running em. I’m amazed at how man’s word, not gods words are spoke in many church’s.

        Always seems to come down to money. O well.


    • Kevin in PA December 24, 2021, 2:22 AM

      It’s a powerful message. I read it last week and I must admit that the recent writings of Vigano have been the catalyst for me seeking to return to church. I made contact with the traditional Roman Catholic Church not far from me. It was the church my parents attended. It is the traditional Catholics that have stood against all the globe-homo nonsense.

      It’s been more than 40 years since I last attended Mass. I went last Sunday and will return for Christmas Day Mass as well.

      Merry Christmas to all. God bless and keep you.

      • Mike Austin December 24, 2021, 2:56 AM

        The sole mission of the Catholic Church is to bring souls to Christ. In you, Kevin, it has succeeded. In me as well.

  • Willy Ruffian December 23, 2021, 11:14 PM

    Merry Christmas to all.

  • Steve (retired/recovering lawyer) December 24, 2021, 4:36 AM

    Years, even decades ago, my wife and I became interested in Biblical prophesy. We followed the teachings of many prophesy teachers; Jimmy DeYoung, J.R. Church and Gary Stearman, Zola Levitt, Perry Stone and others. They all differed slightly in their exegesis, but agreed on one, salient thing: America has no role in the events of the Eschaton. We wondered how its removal from the events of those days would come about. I believe it is possible we now know. Sad, isn’t it? Nevertheless, Maranatha. And to all who read this, we wish you the most Blessed Christmas.

    The Physics Of Santa Claus

    It seems like an impossible task, doesn’t it? From the first nightfall on Christmas eve until dawn on Christmas morning, one stout and elderly man, armed only with a magic sleigh and eight flying reindeer, must deliver toys to children in every household in the world… that believes in him. With the population having recently passed seven billion, is this physically possible?

    To find out, let’s start with the right conditions. Admittedly, Santa has a tall order ahead of him:

    According to Wikipedia and extrapolating for population growth since the date of the survey, there are approximately 1.6 billion households worldwide.
    Since the Earth has about 25 million square miles (65 million square kilometers) of habitable land, the average distance between any two households is approximately 0.138 miles (0.225 km).
    And, at least in the United States, Santa visits 31% of households in any given year. (Pretends to? Really, PEW?)

    So what this means, altogether, is that Santa has from the first sundown on Christmas eve until just before dawn in the last house to experience Christmas morning to deliver presents to right around 500 million households. Due to timezones, the international date line and the variations in sunset/sunrise times, this means Santa has about 31 hours to hit those half-a-billion households. In that time, he must do the following:

    travel to the house, a mean distance of 0.205 miles (0.33 kilometers) from the last house,
    depart his sleigh and enter the house undetected,
    deliver all the presents,
    eat any snacks left for him (cookies and beer at my place),
    and then leave the house undetected, mount the sleigh and head for the next house.
    To accomplish all of those tasks seems to be asking for a lot, as many parents could tell you.

    But for Santa, he’s only got 223 microseconds on average to hit each house! Sound impossible? Maybe for a normal human with conventional technology, sure. But I have faith in Santa, and so should you. Let’s take a look at each of the objections you may have.

    1.) There’s no way Santa could travel to each house that quickly. This actually isn’t all that fast. At least, not compared to relativity and the speed of light. To move the mean distance from house-to-house, Santa need only travel at — assuming he takes roughly 50% of the time allotted to travel — around 6400 miles-per-hour (10,000 kph). Sure, that might seem awfully fast compared to your typical sleigh, or even your typical car, train or supersonic aircraft. But that’s only about a quarter as fast as most rockets wind up going. If you fuel up those reindeer right, there’s no reason to believe Santa can’t make that journey.

    2.) There’s no way an open sleigh — and a Santa within — could handle the heat or acceleration generated. First, there’s the heat objection. Moving at those intense speeds, the frictional forces of the atmosphere alone could be a disaster; the only thing we’re familiar with that collides with the atmosphere at those speed are meteors, and satellites that re-enter the atmosphere. Santa would need to dissipate somewhere on the order of a few trillion Joules of heat each second of travel, a tremendous amount. But there are two ways out:

    He could have a heat shield protecting both the reindeer and himself, allowing him to travel freely. This is a problem, however, if we’re considering an open sleigh. But the second option might not be such a problem…
    He could have such an aerodynamically advanced vehicle that the air in front of him is mostly evacuated, leaving only a smooth breeze. Give Santa a little bit of oxygen, and he’s good to go.
    The accelerations are a little rougher, mind you. Going from 0-to-60 mph in a tenth of a second is a disaster for most people; you’d pass out (or worse) from the acceleration. So going from 0-to-6,000 seems like it’d be out of the question! Even if we remember that most of the world lives concentrated in urban areas, the short journey from rooftop-to-rooftop would be catastrophic at these speeds. The record for human endurance over short times is 83g’s, my Major John Beeding on a rocket sled. The idea that humans could take these incredible accelerations/decelerations was pioneered by John Stapp, who tested his devices on himself in the 1940s and 1950s.

    What Santa needs, quite simply, is a way to keep his blood flowing normally through all of this. A sufficiently pressurized suit, combined with a biological turbine system that’s far more powerful than a human heart could do it. Yes, biological modification isn’t what you think of when you think of Santa, but who among us has ever seen the jolly one with our own eyes to be sure?

    3.) How could Santa get into all those houses so quietly, and never leave footprints? Stealthy isn’t exactly the picture you have in mind when you think of an overweight, elderly man traveling all over the world and wearing boots. Yet if Santa can land, there’s no reason he couldn’t be placed into the house from outside, via a mechanical rig attached to the sleigh. Whether through a door, window, chimney or other device, a robotic arm with Santa-capacity could easily handle this. This is a tall order for any human, so there’s no reason to believe Santa hasn’t instituted a bit of technological Christmas magic.

    What, and you though elves were only good for making toys?

    4.) How could he deliver the presents so fast? If he had to do it all by hand, I could understand your objections. But if Santa has a robotic arm putting him inside, surely it could help him drop off and deposit presents. Literally a fraction of a second would be all it takes, and then he’d be gone.

    5.) What about the eating of the snacks? This actually works out brilliantly. You see, it takes a tremendous amount of energy — and hence, fuel — to drag all of these present all over the world. Sure, magic, flying reindeer could just “take care” of this, but let’s be reasonable for a moment. You see, as far as we can tell, everything must obey the conservation of energy, even Santa Claus. But how much energy does it really take for each of these journeys?

    Assuming Santa comes fully laden with all the toys delivered to children across the world, he has somewhere around a million tonnes of toys to deliver, assuming about 4.5 pounds (2 kg) of toys per household. (Think of that the next time you ask Santa for a pony, kids!) This is about four thousand times the payload capacity of the largest aircraft, the Antonov An-225, which transports things like the space shuttle. Rocket fuel is expensive, sure, but it’s also inefficient! Only about 0.001% of the mass in rocket fuel goes into energy; the rest is simply wasted, dead weight. But what if Santa’s reindeer — the power behind Santa Claus — could turn those milk and cookies into energy via Einstein’s E=mc2?

    Quite amazingly, the tiny, little amounts of mass in even a single, small cookie could power Santa and all the toys in the world from one house to the next, because E=mc2 is 100% efficient. The leftovers, of course, are all for Santa.

    There are other plausible scenarios to how Santa could deliver all those presents, some of which rely on technology (such as Arthur Christmas), some of which rely on magic, and some of which rely on many, many helpers. But for those of you who doubt it, never forget the most important lesson we learned from Apollo 8, the first crewed spacecraft to leave low-Earth orbit, as the following exchange between Ken Mattingly (on the ground in Houston) and Jim Lovell (aboard Apollo 8) shows:

    089:32:50 Mattingly: Apollo 8, Houston. [No answer.]
    089:33:38 Mattingly: Apollo 8, Houston.
    089:34:16 Lovell: Houston, Apollo 8, over.
    089:34:19 Mattingly: Hello, Apollo 8. Loud and clear.
    089:34:25 Lovell: Roger. Please be informed there is a Santa Claus.
    089:34:31 Mattingly: That’s affirmative. You’re the best ones to know.

    Now if only we could answer the greatest of all Christmas mysteries: how does he go to the bathroom?

    The religious leaders here in the U.S. were a disgrace during the epidemic when they “allowed” their churches to be shut.

    • Mike Austin December 24, 2021, 3:54 PM

      They spit in the Face of Christ, and rendered unto Caesar the things that were God’s. They will receive their reward.

    Disarmed? 13 million Americans purchased like 20 million firearms this past year. “ They” wil never find all my firearms,,,,, hell I’m not so sure I can locate all my firearms.

    End of the day, your most important weapons whats atop your shoulders!

    Merry Christmas!

    • ghostsniper December 24, 2021, 1:26 PM

      I’m skeptical of that 20mil number.
      In the past 10 years I have “tried” to purchase 5 guns through gun stores and each time was denied due to the NICS check, even though I still had to pay $15 each time for the check. Keep in mind that I have never been a criminal, I am gun licensed in the current state as well as 2 others, ex-miltary, no driving infractions for 30+ years, pay taxes (reluctantly) and otherwise am a model citizen. Oh yeah, have been fingerprinted at least 20 times over the past 40 years for legal reasons. Further, while these checks were going on, in some cases, there was only 1 phone or computer line, so while my NICS check was in session no others could be done. Each time was about half an hour. In 3 of the 5 cases the ATF timed out and I got the gun in 3 days, but in the other 2 I gave up on the spot out of frustration and irritation. I know of 8 other people that can tell the same story. Now I ask you, how can this NICS stuff be considered NON infringement? And, how in the world do 20mil guns get sold with all the NICS stop signs? Once again, we won’t get an accurate account from the media or the gov’t and both will lie arduously to promote an agenda.

        Buying a firearm in Oklahoma City takes just a bit longer than buying a dozen eggs. Oklahoma: The freest state in America. Better gun laws than Texas, no border with Mexico, and our Red Necks have the reddest of necks. Here it is mostly rural. It is impossible to drive in the country—5 minutes away from Oklahoma City—and not hear gunfire as people practice shooting in their backyards.

        If the Chinese or Deep State goons wish to harass us, they will have a short and exciting life.

      • Dirk December 24, 2021, 4:11 PM

        Ghost, I’m not surprised by the numbers, Americans on both side clearly see what’s up, understand their safety is their responsibility. I bought my 13 yr old Grandson a Ruger 6.5 creedmore rifle, left handed. If I wanted a right hand rifle he had em on the shelf, my GS is left eye dominant but RH in literally everything else. The left handed rifles are at least six months out.

        The line in this hole in the wall gun store was out the door. My friend he’s been selling guns in crazy numbers since Biden’s theft.

  • Suzan December 24, 2021, 11:50 PM

    From the great G.K. Chesterton:

    “What has happened to me has been the very reverse of what appears to be the experience of most of my friends. Instead of dwindling to a point, Santa Claus has grown larger and larger in my life until he fills almost the whole of it. It happened in this way.

    “As a child I was faced with a phenomenon requiring explanation. I hung up at the end of my bed an empty stocking, which in the morning became a full stocking. I had done nothing to produce the things that filled it. I had not worked for them, or made them or helped to make them. I had not even been good — far from it.

    “And the explanation was that a certain being whom people called Santa Claus was benevolently disposed toward me…What we believed was that a certain benevolent agency did give us those toys for nothing. And, as I say, I believe it still. I have merely extended the idea.

    “Then I only wondered who put the toys in the stocking; now I wonder who put the stocking by the bed, and the bed in the room, and the room in the house, and the house on the planet, and the great planet in the void.

    “Once I only thanked Santa Claus for a few dollars and crackers. Now, I thank him for stars and street faces, and wine and the great sea. Once I thought it delightful and astonishing to find a present so big that it only went halfway into the stocking. Now I am delighted and astonished every morning to find a present so big that it takes two stockings to hold it, and then leaves a great deal outside; it is the large and preposterous present of myself, as to the origin of which I can offer no suggestion except that Santa Claus gave it to me in a fit of peculiarly fantastic goodwill.”
