to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
No. 41 2/1/2016
Now might be the time to take a closer look at topics recently discussed
in this RNR. Some time has been spent discussing our economy, and even
that of the world. Huge debt seems to be a problem everywhere, with a constant
call for big banks to ward off recessions by injecting more money. Yet
the problems persist, and grow even larger!
And recently we have been exposed to a steady diet of publicity claiming
that climate change and global warming is threatening our future existence.
Amazingly, there seems a total unwillingness on the part of the doomsday
predictors to consider the huge mass of evidence that it is no problem
at all, but maybe only artificially contrived!
So, is there an explanation for all this, and maybe a simple answer
I submit that the answer can be traced back to a growing tendency over
the past few years, centuries in fact, that mankind is in total control.
The Industrial Revolution followed the period in history called The Enlightenment.
Historians trace this period to roughly the 18th century, followed by the
Industrial Revolution which is historically dated in the early 19th century.
Important men during the early Enlightenment included Francis Bacon,
Thomas Hobbes, Renee Descartes, Kepler, Leibniz, and the German Emmanuel
Kant. Later, came two French philosophers, Diderot, whose "Encyclopedie,"
"brought together leading authors to produce an ambitious compilation of
human knowledge," and Voltaire, who authored his "Philosophical Dictionary,"
summarized by one historian as a "Chaos of clear ideas." Foremost among
these was the notion that "everything in the universe could be rationally
demystified and cataloged."
A study of these periods not only showcases impressive and very legitimate
breakthroughs in human knowledge and accomplishments, but also hints at
a growing conviction that our human family is totally in charge of our
existence and our destiny. As the decades rolled by, right up to our present
time, there has been a slow erosion in a feeling of dependence on God,
and a look instead, to the expertise of our elite, our leaders in the fields
of economics, politics, and social affairs.
Bluntly, too wide spread is the conviction, especially among the well
educated and national leaders, that the old fashioned God, the creator,
redeemer and sustainer of all life, is no longer needed, that we are capable
of solving all problems and creating a gradually better life for us all.
We see this preached repeatedly in this country, that the FED, our Federal
Reserve Bank, has brought us out of the recession after 2008, by its careful
manipulation of interest rates and "quantitative easing," the creation
of electronic money in other words.
And we hear about it when our environment is concerned, that the recent
climate meeting in Paris is working on a world-wide agreement that will
reduce carbon emissions, and save us from the projected disaster coming
because of global warming and climate change!
And yes, all of these actions by the "experts," will result of course
in more restrictions on our daily lives, more taxes to pay for the inevitable
regulations, and another huge increase in the power of the governing body
involved! One wonders if this is not a planned agenda!!
To the Editor
The following information is for anyone thinking about filing to run
for an Idaho County position, i.e. commissioner.
The way to start the process is to go to the Idaho County Court House
on Main Street in Grangeville and stop in at Room 5 on the main floor.
Jessie will give you the filing paper, a declaration of candidacy,
with a petition on the back for your supporters' signatures.
You must get either five signatures from registered voters or pay forty
Return the declaration with the signatures or the money, to Room
5, between February 29 and March 11.
Okay, so maybe moving in and taking over the Malheur Wildlife refuge
in Oregon wasn't the wisest, best approach for patriotic justice seekers
to use to show support for their imprisoned brothers, nor in any other
attempts to appeal to those far-more-permanent GOVERNMENT OCCUPIERS for
"redress of grievances," a right secured and supposedly guaranteed to us
all within the freedom documents founding our nation. Again, given
everything that (governmentally) we the American people are presently up
against, the sit-in probably wasn't the smartest tactic. Personally,
I have to wonder if the group might even have had some outside "help" nudging
them in that futile direction. It wouldn't be the first time.
At any rate, though - and much more importantly -
I ask that we compare these folks' audacious "crime," carried out non-violently,
even respectfully, to what was soon to come against them from a conspiring
cadre of paid "public servants" from the FBI and from many Oregon state,
county and local officials.
Is there any possible, fair comparison between the courageous (even
if misguided) actions of this unorganized citizen group and the murderous,
conniving thuggery that took place at the massive highway stake-out, the
totally unprovoked and unnecessary execution of an entrapped citizen there
in the snow - - that along with the absolute horrific barrage of weaponry
that rained down upon the equally non-combative passengers still inside
the now deceased man's truck?! (And rogue government agencies like
this preach to us about evil terrorism??!!) May Heaven deliver us
all, as I believe It certainly did the survivors of this latest, demonic
Just when will be the right and efficacious time for the people of
this Land to begin to rein in and hold accountable these types of out-of-control
"authorities" obviously drunk with power and bent on destroying our lives
