Some people are living symbols, sheer embodiments of a concept that fits their persona as snugly as their skin: e.g. the Dalai Lama personifies Contemplative Piety, Harvey Weinstein is the incarnation of Brazen Vulgarity, and John McCain’s very person exudes the sweaty blustery spirit of Empire. His entire history – born in the Panama Canal zone, son of an admiral, third-generation centurion, the War Party’s senatorial spokesman – made it nearly impossible for him to be other than what he is: the country’s most outspoken warmonger and dedicated internationalist.
As George Orwell remarked, “After forty, everyone has the face they deserve,” and in McCain’s case this is doubly true. That Roman head, fit for a coin of high denomination, looks as if it might sprout a crown of laurel leaves at any moment: Grizzled brow, wrinkled with the tension of an inborn belligerence, eyes alight with a perpetual flame of self-righteous anger, McCain is Teddy Roosevelt impersonating Cato the Elder. In the extreme predictability of his warlike effusions, he’s become a bit of a cartoon character. Who can forget his enthusiastic rendition of “Bomb bomb bomb Iran!” to the tune of “Barbara Ann”?
The Senator from Arizona represents something relatively new on the American scene: the emerging class of colonial administrators, Pentagon contractors, and high-ranking military personnel, and their families, many of them stationed overseas. These people have a material interest in the expansion of our role as global cop, they number in the tens of thousands, and they are strategically placed in the social order, with enough social power to constitute an influential lobby.
As the prototype of this mutant species of Homo Americanus, McCain is the perfect enemy of the new nationalism that handed the White House to Donald Trump and sundered the Brits from the EU. It’s no surprise he’s become the antipode of the Trumpian “America First” foreign policy doctrine – a doctrine that is almost never implemented, but that’s another column. His latest philippic perfectly summarizes the spirit and content of the brazen imperialism that is his credo and the credo of his class, We get the whole grand tour of McCainism as a worldview, from the rather odd idea that “America is an idea” and not an actual place to the glories of the “international order.” There is much shedding of blood “to make a better world” – a cause we are told has “made our own civilization more just, freer, more accomplished and prosperous than the America that existed when I watched my father go off to war on December 7, 1941.” Now here is crackpot Keynesianism with a vengeance: the destruction of World War II was good for the economy!
Having “liberated” the world from itself, the United States, as the champion of World Order, is in danger of turning away from its sacred duty to always be shedding lots and lots of blood on behalf of Others. And we know just who McCain is talking about:
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.”
The idea that we led and organized the world for the entire postwar era erases the cold war from history, a neat trick given McCain’s record. And as for our “ideals” and this “last best hope” business, none of that is worth a single American soldier – nor does it have anything to do with a soldier’s proper job, which is protecting this country. Yet what is one to expect from someone who actually believes “we live in a land of ideals, not blood and soil.” Blood never comes into it for McCain unless it’s being shed in some ill-conceived totally unnecessary war. And as for soil – there is none. There’s just “ideals,” floating in a void.
While admitting that the Trumpian version of American nationalism is somewhat undercooked – and, perhaps, not all that digestible – one has to wonder: where does a supporter of the Iraq war, who assured us it would be a glorious victory, get off calling anybody or anything half-baked?
McCain doesn’t even try making a coherent argument: instead, he simply lies by claiming that, having taken the road to Empire, “we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did.” It’s utter nonsense, of course: empires are an expansive luxury. We spend more on the military than the top ten powers combined, and the national debt is at historic heights. We’re effectively bankrupt thanks to out-of-control military spending and McCain’s favored wars of choice.
The idea that we have a “moral obligation” to enforce McCain’s beloved “international order” is rooted in the crazed post-millennial pietism that has motivated so much that is mischievous in American history. The old religious impulse that motivated Prohibition and the “anti-vice” campaigns of the nineteenth century has, today, been secularized and internationalized. The old fundamentalists sought to remake the country, their secular successors seek to remake the world. This accounts for the quasi-religious tone of McCain’s remarks, this talk of “moral obligation” and “shame” if we fail to take up the burden of Empire, manfully and willfully, because “We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”
In other words: Americans have no right to live their lives in peace, and to leave others in the same condition: they must perpetually be sticking their noses in other peoples’ business, sniffing out “injustice” and making sure the trains run on time. McCain hails the crusade to “help make another, better world” – yet the American people don’t want another world, they want to live in this world in peace and security, rather than sacrificing themselves to some imaginary “duty” to uplift the world on Uncle Sam’s shoulders. That’s one reason why Trump is in the White House and McCain is on the outside looking in.
Large amounts of territory seized by the Kurdish Peshmerga (their flag above) over the course of multiple years of war with ISIS has been ceded back to the Iraqi central government in only about 72 hours. Iraqi officials now say that the Peshmerga is back to its June 2014 borders, the start of the ISIS conflict.
Iraq’s fast military offensive, bolstered by Shi’ite militias, saw them seize the oil-rich city of Kirkuk on Monday,expanding into Sinjar and Khanaqin on Tuesday.On Wednesday, Iraqi forces took territory near Mosul.
The Kurdistan Regional Government had previously indicated they intended to keep all that territory as part of theirs, and this was particularly important in Kirkuk, which the Kurds have historical claims to.
Secessionist ambitions, however, convinced Iraq they needed to push the Peshmerga out of the territory, and despite the Kurdish paramilitary force having a lot of US-provided arms, they don’t appear to have been willing to directly contest the offensive, at least not so far. Iraqi officials have not said if they intend to push deeper into Iraqi Kurdistan.

Global Research, October 19, 2017
Developed in 1988 by the United Nations Environment Programme and the UN’s World Meteorological Organization, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) maintains its silence on military weather modification applications which continue to skew the data.
“Extreme weather and climate events” are linked to climate change while no mention is made of government programs deliberately aimed at modifying the weather and inducing earthquakes, drought, rain, and tsunamis.
The modern weather modification program, at least in the US, is over 70 years old. Public service announcements printed in newspapers back in the 1960s warned of government intention to modify the weather.
Life Magazine, back in the 50s and 60s, continually covered US weather modification programs, including Project Stormfury which redirected and reduced hurricane intensity from 1962 to 1983. The IPCC’s continuing and absolute silence on such programs is deafening...............P
Verizon has come out and stated they had to use MICROWAVE or 5G to help the fire victims. Well microwave cooks from the inside out just like so many videos of trees burning from the inside out. Combine the drought with chemtrails, directed energy weapons and microwave energy and you have a deadly mix.
Last week Ray Gano wrote an article that gained a lot of attention.
“Let me be frank and share with you just a few reasons why most churches, teachers and preachers seldom, if ever, deal with the issue of the reality and work of demonic spirits today.
· Satan has hidden himself well (2 Corinthians 11:14).
· Many are ignorant (unaware) of what Satan’s schemes and tactics look like (2 Corinthians 2:11).
· Many are afraid of what the people might think (John 12:42-43).They are spiritual children and thus ill-equipped for spiritual battle. Overcoming the Devil is a “must-learn” skill in the process of spiritual growth (1 John 2:12-14).
· Most fail to recognize the John 10:10 Enemy.
· Many have been trapped by Satan into doing his will (2 Corinthians 11:3-4; and 2 Timothy 2:24-26).
· They are careless (2 Corinthians 11:2).
· They are trapped in perpetual sin (Ephesians 4:27).
· Most don’t know what to do or how to help those who are experiencing a Satanic attack (Matthew 17:15; and James 4:7).
· They do not believe that demons exist or that they were a first century problem and not an issue for today (1 Peter 5:8).”
Do you know that over 20% of pastors standing on the pulpits today do not believe that demons, Satan, or devils exist?
Yes… over 20%.
What they think is that Satan and his minions are all fairy tales made up in the minds of lesser educated backwards people who lean on myths and stories. These are the same men that God used to bring about the Inspired Word of God, The Bible.
People are in full attack from the enemy attack. In today’s fast paced world people rarely consider that their depression, despair, envy, anger, bitterness, jealousy, lust, deceit or pride may have a spiritual warfare component to it.
They do not realize that they are Demonized and quite possibly have a demonic infestation problem.
To them it is just a day to day struggle that life is dishing out to them by the spoonful, and for some it is by the shovel load.
God’s Word constantly warns us to beware of Satanic attack.
2 Corinthians 11:13 -15 – 13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
2 Thessalonians 2:9 – 12 – 9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
But here is a great promise from our Lord..
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
This past weekend I received about 40-50 emails from people telling me about their demon issue and a sizable number of them seeking help in deliverance. What was amazing also were a few of them also included people who were in the deliverance arena and were reaching out and thanking me for the valuable information I have been writing about.
Do you think you have a demonic issue?
Listen, Demons do not walk to up to a person and say, “Hey! Do you want to be fully and completely demon possessed?”
No – what they do in fact is leverage a weakness or an open door to the soul via the sub-conscious. They are allowed this access usually through the following.
Have you been involved with any of the following?
· Mind Altering Drugs / Alcohol Addiction
· Putting one’s self into an altered state of consciousness
· Sexual deviation / hedonism, etc
· Greed – the love of money
· The quest for power
· Witchcraft & opening ones self-up to occult practices
· New age, paganism, pantheistic religions
It is through these avenues that demon find a weakness / door and this is how the infestation / demonization starts to take place.
Now this does not happen all at once.
I have described it in the past akin to a camel slowly sticking his nose in the tent. It starts out with just a nose. After a while it is his head, then head and neck, then head – neck and front legs, Then, the next thing you know, the whole camel is in the middle of the tent. All the camel needed was an open door and it slowly crawled in and took up residency.
That is how demons work as well.
We need freedom from the enemy, we need deliverance from evil.
The churches have dropped the ball big time and pastors refuse to teach and preach on this topic.
What is interesting is that it is the lay person that seems to be picking up the ball and running with it. People are reaching out to other people helping them get free. I want to put my name into that hat as well and tell people that I am here to help where ever I possibly can.
I believe with all my heart that we will see the demonic forces grow bigger and bigger as well as stronger and stronger as more and more people choose to serve the enemy instead of submitting their lives to Christ.
We are literally witnessing the spiritual start to seep over and merge with the physical.
No matter how bad it is, we have read the book, we know the ending and folks, we win.
Here is a verse of hope…
Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
If you are someone who has questions or thinks they need help, contact Mr. Gano or Your Watchman. We have been helping people through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and through His authority we are seeing success in helping people be delivered of these demonic infestations.
